Months after Jahi McMath, a young California resident, was declared brain dead, she could clearly respond to instructions to move certain parts of her body. Medically ambiguous cases such as Jahi’s were the subject of a public discussion, which raised questions of what it really means to be dead, held on Wednesday.
“There are two components to the idea of conflict,” said Gen. John R. Allen (ret.), president of the Brookings Institution, in his opening remarks. “The nature of war and the character of war.”
On Wednesday, Oct. 2, award-winning Democratic pollster Joel Benenson, who has worked on multiple presidential campaigns, gave University students a glimpse into the inner workings of a prominent political operation.
The other day, a close friend reintroduced me to Lana Del Rey’s devastating, beautiful single “Summertime Sadness” (2012), which narrates the summer-symbolizing suicide of two lesbian lovers. As many have noted, the notion of summertime sadness feels oxymoronic, given our culture’s association of winter with depression and summer with eroticized, sun-soaked ecstasy. But summertime melancholy is indeed an extraordinarily real experience for those prone to depression and loneliness. The times when it seems most people are having a ball — a perception informed by beachy Instagram pictures and other modern mechanisms of misleading self-presentation — are often the most excruciating for the isolated.
The University’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD), and the top independent renewable energy producer in India, ReNew Power, have agreed to combine resources for future collaboration in the field of renewable energy.
I was eight years old when my grandpa gave me my first journal one summer day in Nanjing. My grandpa’s the most prolific writer I’ve ever known, partly by necessity. Years ago, he underwent an operation because of a cancer that has effectively robbed him of his voice. I don’t know what his words sound like, and I never would have been able to communicate with him were it not for our shared knowledge of English. In his room stacked high with books of all sorts, I would sit on his bed and write to him while he sat on his stool eating a late lunch and watching history talks on TV. From the hospital, he had an unlimited collection of manuals with red binding, and we would write notes to each other for hours on their blank backs.
Editor’s Note: In honor of the 150th season of Princeton Football, The Daily Princetonian will be re-publishing football articles from our archives. This article was originally published Nov. 23, 1964, the Monday after Princeton defeated Cornell to secure an undefeated season, its last until 2018.
No. 12 Princeton field hockey (5–4 overall, 1–0 Ivy League) started a new two-game win streak this week with victories over Dartmouth and No. 11 Delaware.
When Naomi Klein looks at the world today, she sees flames. There are three “fires” that the global community is facing, she told an audience at Richardson Auditorium on Tuesday, and they are increasingly converging.
On Monday, Sept. 30, Judge Allison D. Burroughs of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts ruled in favor of Harvard University in a civil-action lawsuit filed by Students for Fair Admissions, a group alleging that Harvard discriminates against Asian-American students in its admission process.
General Mark Milley ’80 was sworn in as the 20th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in a ceremony on September 30. Milley will now hold the highest officer position in the United States military.
In the course of our education, employment, and lives in general, we are often encouraged to refrain from rocking the boat. If we become frustrated with the behavior of another, especially in the case of an institutional higher-up, we are told that we should pick our battles, that it is not worth the trouble of addressing the issue at hand.
Last month, Princeton secured the number-one spot among national universities on the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges ranking, for the ninth year in a row. As I read more into what criteria the rankings take into account, however, I realized that our first place position should come as no surprise, for U.S. News weighs only those criteria at which Princeton most excels, such as student test scores and alumni donation rates. The ranking system seems to be written almost specifically for Princeton (perhaps because we’ve been around for 273 years).
Last week, former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (nicknamed Megatron) caused a stir in sports media by admitting he would smoke marijuana after almost every game he played starting in 2007 until the end of his career in 2015.
Princeton women’s volleyball (5–5 overall, 1–0 Ivy) began Ivy League play with a 3–0 sweep (25–20, 26–24, 25–18) over Penn (7–3 overall, 0–1 Ivy) on Friday.
Student photos have been unavailable on Tigerbook since Sept. 30.
So, here we are again. Or, for many of you, for the first time. Summer is officially over, Princeton is hurtling into its fourth week of classes, and tourists are flocking to Blair Arch as a part of the ritualistic tradition of creating an obstacle course for students rushing to class. As a member of Mathey, I learned early on in my first year to allot a five-minute grace period when leaving for my classes, just to avoid getting caught in a mob or — God forbid — getting asked to take a photo of a visiting family.
While much of Princeton’s charm comes from its beautiful historical architecture, at the heart of the University are interactions between the students on its campus and the incredible buildings that offer them housing and educational spaces. It is important to ensure that as these buildings age, they are renovated to provide adequate housing for the students who live in them.
Many college students throw away unwanted dorm items at the end of the school year. The EcoReps Move-In Resale changes this culture of waste by selling items that would traditionally be sent to a landfill.
