Daily Debriefing

(11/20/09 4:00am)

Universities rarely report their researchers' financial conflicts of interest to the government as is required for government-funded research, according to a Department of Health and Human Services report issued on Thursday. The report found that universities that do report research conflicts often do not take steps to minimize or eliminate them, and 90 percent of universities rely exclusively on researchers to self-report any potential conflicts. Federal regulations require universities to report and work to minimize any identified conflicts to ensure the objectivity and value of the research. Although hundreds of universities receive research funding from the National Institutes of Health, only 41 reported researchers' financial conflicts. The report is leading some officials to question universities' ability to monitor their researchers themselves, The New York Times reported.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that she will endorse Congressman Mike Capuano '73, D-Mass., in his campaign for the open Massachusetts Senate seat. Pelosi cited Capuano's "proven record of standing up for progressive values and what he believes is right," including health care reform and marriage equality, as reasons for her support, according to a press release from Capuano's campaign. As speaker-elect, Pelosi selected Capuano in 2006 to oversee the Democratic Party's transition to the majority and later asked him to head her Special Task Force on Ethics Enforcement.

People put a lot of trust in strangers when they buy and sell on eBay, and for the most part that trust is well-placed, according to Neel Sundaresan, a senior director at eBay and head of eBay Research Labs.

Dartmouth College Health Services has received a limited supply of the H1N1 vaccine, which will be made available to students at high risk for complications due to swine flu at two shot clinics next week, according to a campus-wide e-mail from College Health Services director Jack Turco on Thursday. High-risk individuals, as defined by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, include pregnant women, along with people with active asthma or chronic medical conditions. The College expects to receive more doses of the vaccine, which contains the inactivated H1N1 virus, from the New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services, Turco said in his e-mail. Health Services is doing everything possible to make the vaccine available to the entire student body, Turco said.


Homecoming hits: a musical guide to the weekend

(10/23/09 2:00am)

As an impressionable freshman with little knowledge of Dartmouth traditions, I asked a friend what Homecoming typically entails. He oh-so-eloquently described the scene as "a bonfire and a grindfest." At face value, this doesn't seem as exciting as everyone makes it sound, but when I think of the endless raging and dance parties, the hype makes more sense. And what does every weekend of mayhem need? The right playlist!
