    The other Latif

    Podcast

    LAtif Nasser '08 - WNYC Studios

    6 episode Podcast Series - Podcaster Latif Nasser ’08 embarks on a quest to find a prisoner held in Guantanamo Bay—and himself.


    In 2006, while on a Dartmouth foreign study program, Latif Nasser walked the streets of Fez, Morocco, asking inhabitants what it meant to be Muslim. Little did he know that 12 years later he would return to the country to ask slightly different, and much more urgent, questions about identity.

    On his second trip, in 2018, this time to Casablanca, Nasser wasn’t a student but a journalist, investigating the background of a man he couldn’t stop wondering about. The story has now culminated in a six-episode Radiolab podcast about the mystery man, a Guantanamo detainee named Abdul Latif Nasir. In The Other Latif, Nasser explores Nasir’s true identity.  Read more in the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine by Lisa Kocian '94.

    Dartmouth has stepped up to the challenge of going online for Spring by moving 884 classes to fully online in a very short period of time.  In addition to traditional lecture classes, the College has created language labs, studio classes, science labs, and engineering classes that students can access from home.  

    Thayer lives by its motto: “The box does not exist”.  This video discusses what Thayer has accomplished in an unconventional way to continue to offer a first rate education: small classes, projects (individual and group), and lab courses by shipping to students the materials they need to complete each course including 3D printers.  Summer will also online and offer 8 classes as usual.  Though missing the social aspect of Sophomore Summer, the students will still receive the excellent educational experience we all enjoyed during our 4 years in the Northwoods.

    In this video Doug Van Citters speaks about Thayer’s transition to on-line learning

    Rob Dinsmoor ’80 Toxic Cookout andYou Can Leave Anytime

    Toxic Cookout, published by Big Table Publishing in October of 2019, delights in placing ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, whether real or imagined:

    ·     An unsuspecting yoga teacher finds himself in the world of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft in at the Arkham YMCA.

    ·     A paranoid writer is convinced that the family cookout he’s attending is unwholesome, if not downright dangerous.

    ·     A retired school teacher watches a tiny civilization evolve in his neighbor’s garage.

    ·     A man’s GPS system leads him to Antarctica—and somewhere even more remote.

    ·     A spoiled rich girl in Manchester-by-the-Sea takes advantage of a global warming crisis to go surfing in winter.

    ·     People caught in a pyramid scheme start to lose their humanity—literally.

    ·     An artistic couple finds an ideal spot in Florida—well, except for the time-traveling worm holes.

    ·     A young man moving to New York in the 1980s finds out the truth about his reputedly mob-connected super.

    Rob’s memoir You Can Leave Anytimeis a funny/sad (yet honest) account about his experience in rehab.  “We weren’t allowed to go anywhere,” he recalls.  “It was a lot like the current sheltering in place, but instead of family members, I was spending it with alcoholics, junkies, and ex-cons.”

    Jill Fredston ’80   Rowing to Latitude: Journeys Along the Arctic’s Edge 

    Jill has explored over 20,000 miles of the Arctic in her ocean-going rowing shell.  Along with her husband, Doug (in his own small boat), she has traversed the rugged shorelines of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Spitsbergen, and Norway.  Together the couple has battled mountainous seas and hurricane-force winds. They have dragged their boats across ice flows, fended off grizzlies and polar bears, and have been serenaded by humpback whales.

    Jill says these trips are "neither a vacation nor an escape, they are a way of life." Rowing to Latitudeis a celebration of these northern journeys and a passionate testimonial to the extraordinary beauty and danger of wild places as well as the challenges and joys of living an unconventional life.

    William (“Bill”) Goodspeed ’80 Buzz Kill

    Buzz Kill is not for everyone–only those who’ve worked in a company and scratched their heads about crazy corporate rules or seriously wonder if the Human Resources quartet is missing a cello. Come to think of it, Buzz Kill is for everyone who loves to laugh.

    What happens when a southern company, Lund Plastics, hits the skids and hires a Chinese transplant with hilariously awful English to run its fledgling R&D department? Not much, many thought, until Dr. Chen showed remarkable creativity in team building. He utilizes radical methods like Celebrity Dress Up Roller Blading Scavenger Hunt in Miami Beach in team meetings, all to the great chagrin of human resources. They thought the portrayal of Dolly Parton and Cameron Diaz (in her short What About Mary red dress) by men was discriminatory.

    Chen’s antics attract the ire of human resources, forcing many to attend sensitivity training, an experience so brutal, even Dick Cheney would call it torture.

    As Chen, his team and his boss chart the turnaround of Lund Plastics, they are met with bureaucratic and politically correct road blocks at every turn. The hilarious tale is symbolic of today’s American culture, where political correctness has a death grip on business, education and government, while Cialis commercials with their graphic disclaimers run rampart on network television.

    Written for anyone who has ever worked in a large company, suffered through sensitivity training, or wondered if Thanksgiving is an anti-turkey display of Eurocentric imperialism, Buzz Kill is an uproariously twisted tale of Americas corporate culture.
