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...”

Pedestrian killed in train accident near Duke East Campus
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“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. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. On-scene Durham police officers described the individual as an older man—likely not a Duke student and possibly homeless.
The...”

U mad bro?

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...”

'Me Too' explores new narratives in fifth year
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“When I entered Nelson Music Room for a Me Too Monologues rehearsal, the lack of hierarchy among the participants was surprising—but, at the same time, wholly reflective of Me Too’s aim to create a shared, candid Duke community. The actors and student director Naomi Riemer stood together in a circle onstage. Everyone was on equal footing, and although Riemer’s deliberate and animated gestures distinguished her from the cast as she gave them a run-down of the rehearsal schedule, her dictation...”

Going back in search of a hero
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“If I could, I would go back to last weekend.
I would sit in the back somewhere at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, as the life of baseball great Stan Musial was celebrated, following his death on Jan. 19. Listening to legendary sportscaster Bob Costas eulogize one of baseball’s all-time legends, I would feel the tears welling up over a player who retired nearly three decades before I was even born. I had heard the stories, though, of Musial becoming and remaining a steadfast figure in...”

Was it worth it?
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“As everyone comes back from breaks, the usual question-and-reply routine (“How was your break?” “Good, too short”) begins, but after winter break, one question, specifically geared towards the hundreds of students who have returned from a fall semester abroad, is also asked: “Where did you go?”
The study abroad experience has become a de facto component of the much lionized “college experience” and, indeed, a small majority of Duke students study abroad at some point in their Duke careers. ...”

Unselfish play guides Duke basketball's 79-60 win against Florida State
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“Sometimes there is nothing a team can do to make the shots go in. Sometimes everything falls. The most a team can do is put itself in a position to shoot a high percentage.
On Wednesday, Wake Forest’s hot shooting put the Demon Deacons in a position to upset the Blue Devils even though their effort ultimately fell short. Saturday, No. 5 Duke (19-2, 6-2 in the ACC) brought its hottest hand but it was more than random fluctuation. The Blue Devils shared the shots and moved the ball to put...”

A tribute to Maryland, "not our rivals"
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“As the final seconds ticked down in Duke’s 20-point victory against Maryland last weekend, chants of “not our rivals” cascaded through the confines of Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Although the win meant a solid recovery from a disastrous 27-point loss in Miami, it also held the added significance of being potentially the last time the Terrapins play at Cameron Indoor Stadium before they depart for the Big Ten in the 2014-15 season.
It is true—the Terps are not our rivals. They never have been,...”

Five-star dorm rooms
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2017
“In recent years, unthinkable amenities like tanning beds, poolside cabanas and spherical “nap pods” have taken the place of dismal dormitories and labs in universities across the country. The phenomenon of “country club” colleges refers to mostly middling universities that have diverted funds from academics towards opulent facilities in an attempt to lure students. While Duke may not fall into this breed of resort colleges, the University still participates in an amenities arms race among elite...”
