Music Review: Amor de Dias
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“The House At Sea is the sophomore album from Amor de Dias, the collaboration between Alasdair MacLean of The Clientele and Lupe Nunez Fernandez of Pipas. Both indie pop bands, The Clientele and Pipas met on tour and formed Amor de Dias to further express their Spanish influences.
The album feels like the moodier cousin of the duo’s first effort, Street of the Love of Days. Their debut album is grounded in drowsy synth-pop, but The House At Sea is slightly schizophrenic. Composed of a few pop...”

Blue Devil track and field hopes to set records in N.Y.
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“The Blue Devils have created a tradition of success at the Armory Collegiate Invitational in N.Y.—one that they hope to carry on this weekend as they travel north to compete in the Invitational once again. This time, however, many of the athletes are looking to do more than just win their races.
“Everyone here is pretty good: you have to be good to get to this meet,” director of track and field Norm Ogilvie said. “Everyone here also has goals for later in the season. I would say it’s the...”

Duke students flock to Europe for study abroad
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“Despite increasing talk about a broader global focus, the numbers show European countries remain the primary destination for Duke students studying abroad.
Of a total 576 students who studied abroad in Fall 2012, 412 studied in Europe, according to data from the Global Education Office for Undergraduates. Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom are the three most popular locations, and only three non-European countries—Australia, Costa Rica and South Africa—rank in the top 10. The breakdown has...”

Duke ranks as largest recipient of corporate research funding at more than $200M
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“In an era of tightened government purse-strings, corporations play a central, if not controversial, role in funding research at Duke.
Duke has received the most corporate research dollars out of all universities nationwide for the last 10 years—$215 million in 2011. The next highest recipient, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, received just $110 million in 2011. As the University research budget soared from $441 million in 2002 to nearly $1 billion in 2011, for-profit firms have kept...”

Duke undergrad Young Trustee finalist selection raises questions on conflict of interest
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“The members of the Young Trustee Nominating Committee declared eight major and 13 minor conflicts of interest in relation to the Young Trustee semifinalists.
Major conflicts of interest led members of the committee—which narrowed the eight Young Trustee applicants down to three finalists Jan. 21—to remove themselves from voting on the candidate in question, but not from voting on the others. The connections between the YTNC members and the Young Trustee semifinalists posed a challenge to the...”

Duke basketball's win against Wake Forest was more than just a win
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—In sports, wins are a statistic—the most important statistic. But even though a team’s record doesn’t ultimately count as anything more than a number, wins also represent experiences for a team.
Wednesday night in Winston-Salem, the No. 5 Blue Devils earned another tally for their win column but also got a valuable experience beating an upstart Wake Forest squad on the road 75-70.
Head coach Mike Krzyzewski spoke after the game and emphasized wins as numbers rather than...”

Blue Devil women's basketball demolishes Miami in second half
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“Following Thursday night’s contest, there was no doubt that Chelsea Gray is the heart and soul of this Duke basketball team. Going into halftime with a tied score, Gray took over the game in the second half and led what might have been the Blue Devils’ most impressive offensive half of the season.
Duke (19-1, 9-0 in the ACC) was able to do what its male counterpart could not when it handily defeated Miami 82-43, led by Gray who notched 16 points and six steals.
Gray was not the only Blue...”

“An unidentified individual was killed in a train accident just off of East Campus Tuesday evening.
An eastbound Amtrak train struck the pedestrian who was trespassing the tracks at approximately 7:43 p.m. near the intersection of Buchanan Boulevard and West Main Street, about one mile west of the Durham Amtrak Station.

U mad bro?
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
““You sound too angry in your columns.”
There aren’t too many things more frightening in the present-day United States than an angry Arab. I’ve enjoyed being The Chronicle’s resident angry Arab for quite some time now, even if it gets exhausting at times. But anger, more so than other emotions, has a lot to tell us about our attitudes toward dissent and our political lives.
I sound angry in my columns because I am angry and unapologetically so. Not to be angry in the face of the injustices...”

Restraining Order uses art to explore economics
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“The image of “the artist” has become a universal trope—free-spirited, impulsive, unpredictable. The recent exhibit at the Center for Advanced Hindsight, headed by professor of behavioral economics Dan Ariely, challenges this notion with the installment Restraining Order: The Art of Self-Control. Twenty-six local artists participated in the exhibition and reflected on self-control through their work in both written and visual forms. Over the allotted two months of the project, Ariely requested...”
