“WASH­ING­TON — In the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s lat­est ef­fort to boost the econ­omy, a top aide to Mass­a­chu­setts Sen­a­tor John Kerry is being ap­pointed the State De­part­ment’s first chief econ­o­mist, charged with help­ing boost Amer­i­can busi­ness over­seas, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials.

Heidi Crebo-Rediker, a for­mer in­vest­ment banker and grad­u­ate of Dart­mouth Col­lege, has been ad­vis­ing the Sen­ate For­eign Re­la­tions Com­mit­tee, which Kerry chairs, since 2009 on eco­nomic is­sues and will now move to the State De­part­ment to help im­ple­ment Sec­re­tary of State Hillary Rod­ham Clin­ton’s new diplo­matic strat­egy of “eco­nomic state­craft,” ac­cord­ing to a gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial briefed on the new job.

Much as she was doing for Kerry, Crebo-Rediker will be tasked with ap­ply­ing the knowl­edge of fi­nance, eco­nom­ics, and cap­i­tal mar­kets to for­eign pol­icy in the hopes of find­ing in­ter­na­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for Amer­i­can com­pa­nies.

‘This is a very big job,’ Kerry told the Globe in a state­ment. ‘Heidi’s crack­er­jack and she did a heck of a job on the com­mit­tee help­ing con­nect the dots be­tween global eco­nom­ics and for­eign pol­icy. The lines be­tween for­eign pol­icy and eco­nomic pol­icy that maybe ex­isted 20 years ago just don’t apply to this new world, and Heidi un­der­stood this be­fore most peo­ple.’”


**Today’s weather:**

A mix of clouds and sun. High 47F. Winds WSW at 10 to 20 mph.


De­spite a re­cent uptick in the num­ber of states that have le­gal­ized same-sex mar­riage across the na­tion, state rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the New Hamp­shire House are cur­rently de­bat­ing House Bill 437, which would re­peal the same-sex mar­riage law passed in 2009. It will be brought to a vote dur­ing the spring 2012 leg­isla­tive ses­sion, ac­cord­ing to state leg­is­la­tors.

Ten fe­male Dart­mouth stu­dents shared anony­mous and per­sonal tes­ti­mo­ni­als of their ex­pe­ri­ences with sex­ual as­sault, in­ti­mate part­ner vi­o­lence, ha­rass­ment and bul­ly­ing at the Col­lege’s an­nual Speak Out event, held in Col­lis Com­mon Ground in front of a hushed, packed crowd on Tues­day night. The event was spon­sored by the Col­lege’s Sex­ual Abuse Peer Ad­vi­sors as a part of V-Week, Dart­mouth’s an­nual cam­paign to end vi­o­lence against women.

House Bill 1642-FN, which would ex­empt for-profit can­cer treat­ment cen­ters in the state of New Hamp­shire from state reg­u­la­tory pro­ce­dures and taxes to which ex­ist­ing hos­pi­tals are sub­ject, is cur­rently being de­bated in the New Hamp­shire House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives.
