During the 2018 midterm elections, a record-breaking 185 women ran for congressional seats, resulting in an historic 117 female members of Congress. The unprecedented surge of women’s congressional participation led many to call 2018 “The Year of the Woman.” The election of so many women into the top political offices of the United States electrified feminists across the country, and the 2020 election cycle has seen more women than ever before seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
My dad always had a bad history with phones. We bought him his first one in 2014: a Samsung Note 3, the largest phone we could find on the market. For extra precaution, we equipped it with an Otterbox case, holster belt clip and a tempered glass screen protector. Unfortunately, he put his phone on top of the car, drove away and never saw it again; even worse, he forgot to set up a password.
The New Hampshire primary is just a month away. And with 14 Democrats and three Republicans each vying for their party’s nomination, this is a competitive and complex race if there ever was one.
This fall, the Dartmouth football team captured yet another Ivy League championship. The Big Green’s 9-1 run included a Hail Mary against Harvard University that even the least enthusiastic fan could appreciate and a historic matchup against Princeton University at Yankee Stadium. But while the football team plays a widespread, well-known activity, not all of the other 34 varsity sports and extracurriculars offered at Dartmouth are as universally accessible as football.
The next Democratic debate, on Jan. 14, will likely have only five presidential contenders. There will be the three clear frontrunners — Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren — along with Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, both of whom recently cleared the DNC’s threshold for a debate stage appearance.
It’s a familiar situation: A bombastic populist head of state with a chaotic mop of blond hair faces reelection. It’s something many of us have been thinking about here in the U.S., even with our general election still close to a year away. But this story isn’t about America — it’s about Britain.
Just before midnight last Thursday, as I was settling into bed, I decided to take a quick look at the news. And there was the top story. Qasem Soleimani. Dead.
What is it about Pete Buttigieg that makes him so attractive to Dartmouth students? To the untrained eye, there’s something for almost every kind of voter to hate; he’s polling at 7.7 percent nationally for a reason. Yet, 17 percent of Dartmouth students prefer him for the presidency, according to a poll published by The Dartmouth last fall.
On Sat., Nov. 9, two dozen citizens of Topeka, KS rallied on the steps of their statehouse for better laws for the safety of children in the foster care system.
“African Americans are struggling.” “Democrats have not done enough for them, and the best way to punish the latter is at the ballot box.”
Coming from one who routinely wakes on Sunday mornings feeling little remorse for last night’s consumption of two Double-Doubles, Animal Fries and a 29-ounce Dr. Pepper, I’m constantly reminded of my “trust in the Lord” for my metabolism’s sake by the fact that Proverbs 3:5 is clearly printed on the underside of every soda cup at In-N-Out, including my own. And, all things considered, I’m not the only one unapologetically spending my Saturday nights ordering up highly-caloric, obesogenic, fast foods at my local Las Vegas burger temple.
The freedom of the press was defeated on a 15-13-4 vote earlier this week in a meeting of Harvard University’s Undergraduate Council, its student government body.
I’m a first-year, and I love the “frat ban.” Well, maybe I don’t love it, but I certainly understand where it’s coming from.
As we gear up to pack our bags for winterim and head off campus, one subject frequents conversation: Dartmouth abroad experiences. With the quick turnaround between arriving back on campus for winter term and the Feb. 1 due date for applications for study abroad programs in the 2020-21 year, now is the time we must consider our options and reach out for letters of recommendation.
As talk of “Medicare For All” begins to dominate the Democratic presidential primary, discussion of “Big Pharma,” or the pharmaceutical industry, become all the more frequent. The rising price of life-saving drugs contributes to a fast-growing sense of insecurity in the American health care system.
In 2014, Youtuber Gary Turk released a video entitled “Look Up,” a spoken word film intended for the technological generation. The video quickly went viral due to a hard-hitting message about technology and loss of human connection, but has since waned in importance. Dartmouth has recently had its own “Look Up” campaign, founded by Susan Reynolds, a Dartmouth ’84. Deemed “LookUp.Live,” the campaign has a goal of “creating innovative solutions for tech-life balance.”
Just by looking at a charter school building in Manhattan, one can tell that they are not like New York City’s traditional public schools. Charter schools are funded with public money but privately run. The money that would support a student in a public school is instead used to support a charter school if they choose to attend one. In New York City, the 10 percent of students who attend charter schools are more proficient in math, learn to read at grade level much faster and graduate at higher rates than their public-school peers.
