Otters are Back: Finally Confirmed by a Photograph

Carletonian - Fri, 02/14/2020 - 12:52am

We’ve long been anticipating the reappearance of river otters (Lontra canadensis) in our Arboretum. Historically, unregulated hunting and habitat loss had driven river otters to local extinction in southern Minnesota. The population has been gradually recovering southwards by itself and also through reintroduction by the Department of Natural Resources.

Over the past years, Arb staff and students have noticed signs of the reappearance of river otters, including the characteristic otter “sliding tracks” and many large half-eaten fish left on the ice.

A few weeks ago, a Carleton student Mathew Zappa spotted two otters on the ice along the Cannon River but could not take a clear picture due to the darkness at night. On Monday, February 3, a photograph clear enough to identify the animal was finally taken in the Upper Arb by a Northfield resident.

“I was walking with our two dogs along the trail heading south from the Druids rocks [circle] when the dogs stopped and looked intensely into the brush to the east. I have learned to take this action seriously because they often spot something that I don’t see. I soon saw the otter to the east of the trail walking along about 20 feet away from us moving in and out of hiding behind the brush,” said Alan Kraus, conservation program manager for the Cannon River Watershed Partnership, who took the clear photo. Kraus also reported that it was the second time he saw an otter in the Upper Arb. His first spotting was down on the bank of Spring Creek about 50 yards south of the foot bridge.

This is certainly happy news. Because of river otters’ sensitivity to pollution and requirements for a rich and diverse base of prey species, their reappearance indicates a healthy wetland ecosystem.

10 Essential questions to ask before starting a relationship

Carletonian - Fri, 02/14/2020 - 12:49am

I feel morally obligated to tell you at the very start of this article that this is not for people who want a relationship and are not in one. If you are in that situation, I have a one word guide for relationships at Carleton: don’t. Now if you are unfortunate enough to be in a situation of “exclusive,” “a thing,” “casually dating,” or one of the many other dead-souled terms for the godforsaken limbo between married and single many occupy, then this guide applies to you. This will be done in a series of 10 questions.
◉ Question 1: Could you get with someone taller? This is an important question because God in her infinite wisdom decided regret should be a thing.
◉ Question 2: Could they get with someone who possesses more tenacity? Be realistic here, I know everyone looks for different things and all but come on social consensus is still a thing, that’s how we generate systems of ethics. These kinds of mismatches can cause some serious problems down the road. A sufficient substitute for this is their snap score.
◉ Question 3: In what year did Hal Incandenza enroll in Enfield Tennis Academy?
◉ Question 4: What is their favorite Logic song? This is a trick question because no one should ever date a Logic fan.
◉ Question 5: Who are they voting for in the upcoming democratic primary elections? Mayo Pete supporters deserve neither love nor common decency.
◉ Question 6: Are they at all affiliated with horses?
◉ Question 7: Are your kinks compatible? A good way to figure this out by gauging the level of involvement they have had with horses throughout their lives.
◉ Question 8: Are they in the armed forces? There are all sorts of germs and viruses on the group, and you don’t want them getting your mouth when you kiss a bootlicker.
◉ Question 9: Are they on TikTok? You don’t want to be in a relationship with a person who is actively choosing to miss out on the greatest content the internet has to offer.
◉ Question 10: Are they from the East Coast? People from the Hellish Seaboard to our right are incapable of love. Some say it’s the wind. Some say it’s passed down, but we have enough correlation that we can ignore causation.
Once you have answers you are confident in about 8 of these 10 questions then you should have an idea of what you want to be with this person and how much of a relationship you are ready for. Another thing that is important to check is your CoStar compatibility.

Really bold moves you can make this Valentine’s Day

Carletonian - Fri, 02/14/2020 - 12:48am

In 2020, it’s all about being bold. It’s time to shoot your shot, or so they say. Let’s be honest: it’s Valentine’s Day, and nothing is ever gonna happen between you and your crush unless you take matters into your own hands. So, here are a few options by which you can make a completely direct, honest, go-big-or-go-home kind of gesture this Valentine’s Day:

◉ Strike up fiery conversations: things like “6th week, am I right?” or “Ugh, I’m really tired, sorry I’m being boring” or perhaps, “What’d you get on the midterm?”
◉ Glance up and smile when they walk by you on the sidewalk — say “hi” too, but in such a meek way that it could be interpreted as simply an unintentional squeak.
◉ Have your friends say things to you like “OMG [ your name ] you look so SEXY today!,” or “Wow, [ your name ], you’re like, really good at sex” when your crush walks by
◉ Maybe just ask your friend to ask them if they like you?
◉ Tell them you think their friend is cute (so like, they get the message that you find people cute, in general)
◉ When you notice them in Sayles, glance over exactly once, then avoid eye contact
◉ Pretend you didn’t hear them when they talk to you because you are scared
◉ Literally just go hide in a corner probably

Hope that helps! <3 I know it can be hard to approach your crush. All those butterflies! But take it from me, a senior who is well-seasoned in bold moves such as these. The first time you do these things, like waving at them when they pass by your table in Burton, it can be really scary, because it is such a bold thing to do. But life’s short and really, what do you have to lose? Douple-tap their next Instagram post, I dare you…. you’ll be glad you did.
