DDS and Student Assembly introduce new food security efforts

(11/01/19 6:10am)

As fall term winds down and interim approaches, many students face an issue beyond finals and winter break plans: food insecurity. Despite efforts to address the issue, the lack of affordable dining options in the local area, especially during breaks, often leaves a number of students scrambling for alternatives. However, Dartmouth Dining Services and Student Assembly are working to resolve at least part of this issue. 

Q&A with Paul DePodesta, featured in Michael Lewis' "Moneyball"

(11/01/19 6:00am)

On Friday, Cleveland Browns chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta visited Dartmouth to speak to College President Phil Hanlon and government and quantitative social sciences professor Michael Herron’s class, QSS 30.01, “Sports Analytics,” and the sports analytics club. DePodesta gained notoriety after the publication of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book, “Moneyball,” which was later adapted into a popular motion picture. “Moneyball” details how Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane and DePodesta, portrayed by Jonah Hill in the movie, used sports analytics to propel the team to a record-breaking winning streak and the 2002 American League Championship Series. DePodesta spoke with The Dartmouth about “Moneyball” and analytics.

Review: HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ an engaging, original series

(11/01/19 6:09am)

“Watchmen” seems like HBO’s first attempt at a replacement TV show for “Game of Thrones.” Even before the disappointing finale of “Game of Thrones” which aired this May, it seems HBO has been clamoring to produce a new hit show to keep their subscribers. My verdict on whether or not “Watchmen” has the ability to do just that is — being only two episodes into the season — hard to say, but it’s at least off to a good start.

(10/31/19 6:00am)

On Monday, James Kreindler ’77, a prominent New York attorney, returned to campus to give a talk in partnership with the Dickey Center for International Understanding. The talk, delivered in the Kreindler Conference Center — named after Kreindler’s father — to over 100 students and community members, was titled, “Saudi Arabia’s Role in 9/11 and Why the U.S. Government has Kept it Hidden,” in which Kreindler charged that the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks could never have occurred without the support of the Saudi government and that high-level U.S. officials engaged in a cover-up after the fact. 

Greek house blacklists operate under secretive, informal rules

(10/31/19 6:10am)

Greek house blacklists are designed to ban certain people from entering a Greek house, often for reasons including alleged sexual assault or any factor which makes members unsafe. However, there are no universal rules or policies governing blacklists — most policies are decided on a house-by-house basis. Title IX coordinator Kristi Clemens said she supports the creation of a universal blacklist policy in the Greek system, but she acknowledged that the goal would be difficult to achieve.

Gunderson: Only for Democrats? Well, That's the Point.

(10/31/19 6:05am)

Going to school in New Hampshire is a dream come true for any political junkie. As one of the last truly “purple” states, razor-thin margins decide our elections: Maggie Hassan, New Hampshire’s most recently elected senator, won by 1,017 votes, or about one class at Dartmouth. Our status as the first-in-the-nation presidential primary makes the Granite State a hotbed for grassroots campaigning and opinionated political action, and this political involvement has defined my time at Dartmouth.
