Dartbeat’s Guide to Winter Break TV

With the craziness of the quarter system and Dartmouth’s work-hard-work-harder atmosphere, you probably already find yourself exhausted. Around week four, I started having fantasies about sleeping in a pile of adorable, cuddly puppies and never having to leave. At this point, my brain is completely fried, and expectations for academic performance are at an all-time low.  But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Finals end in just 12 days (but who’s really counting? Oh yes, all of us), and hibernation in the form of sleep and never-ending Netflix-watching can finally begin. If even just the thought of having to decide what to watch on Netflix or TV (it’s cute that you’re so old-fashioned) is too much for you, we have you covered. Check out these upcoming premieres for November and December for what to watch. Note: watching all the Claymation movies on ABC Family is a prerequisite to move on to these shows. “Risking It All” (TLC): Premieres Nov. 10 at 10 p.m. This latest TLC reality show follows three families as they one-up your self-imposed finals week Facebook ban by living off the grid in an attempt to reconnect with each other. It’s worth checking out… Read more »

Eight Things You Can Find at the Hanover Christmas Market

Painting copy

If you attempt to Google “Hanover Christmas Market,” be forewarned that you’ll be directed to an impressive number of pages about a Christmas market in Hannover, Germany, which looks a bit more like this, rather than this familiar scene. But don’t be discouraged! There is still a Christmas market in our town. Each year the Christmas Market with a Difference, an outreach project of the Church of Christ that began in 1987, comes to campus. This year, the festivities kicked off Thursday at 10 a.m. and continue Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The market features artisanal pieces from all around the world, and all proceeds go back to the 19 organizations and cooperatives featured. The market fills two large rooms in the church. With everything from ornaments made of magazine pages to beaded sandals, it’s hard to provide any sampling of objects that could represent the wide variety of gifts available. However, here are eight things that caught my eye at the market this year. And even though it’s only just November, put on your favorite holiday songs and break out the good cheer a little earlier this year to… Read more »

Columbia: Student activists joined elected city officials at New York City Hall to discuss the proposed New York Campus Safety Act before a public hearing, the Spectator reported.

Eight Recipes to Bring Autumn to Your Heart (and Stomach)

Courtesy of

You know it’s fall when the good ol’ PSL is back in every coffee shop and you suddenly find yourself surrounded by all things made of apple and squash. Autumn is the best season for comfort food – everything is warm and cozy, from soups and stews to pies and pastries. Whether you’re a die-hard sweet tooth or tend to fall along the more savory side of things, we’ve rounded up four of the best recipes for each category to keep your appetite satisfied and warm as the temperatures drop. Sweet: Baked pears with walnuts and honey. This recipe only calls for four ingredients, and it will warm you up like nothing else. It has the bonus of making you feel virtuous for eating fruit (when was the last time that happened?), and also looking like something out of an upscale New York restaurant that also serves craft sodas and creatively-named cocktails.  Apple pie cups. The only thing that would make apple pie more delicious is having it in miniature form. With a cinnamon streusel topping and drizzled caramel over the whole confection, this dessert has it all. Although you could take a more homemade route with this one, using… Read more »
