by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2016
“Aubrey McClendon, co-founder and CEO of Chesapeake Energy Corp., will step down as the company’s leader effective April 1, according to a company release Tuesday.

FS WHO? Duke basketball shoots past the Seminoles 79-60
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2016
“TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—For the second time in as many weeks, Duke basketball has traveled to Florida for a rout. Unlike the 90-63 drubbing they received at the hands of Miami Jan. 23, though, the Blue Devils were the ones dealing out the beating Saturday afternoon at the Donald L. Tucker Center.
Behind a lights-out shooting performance from the backcourt trio of Quinn Cook, Seth Curry and Rasheed Sulaimon, Duke demolished Florida State 79-60 on the Seminoles’ home floor.
While Florida State star...”

Unselfish play guides Duke basketball's 79-60 win against Florida State
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2016
“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...”

by The Chronicle

Sympathy for the devil
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2016
“It’s changing, now, but most geologists are still in it for the rocks. There are hand samples, chunks of granite or tonalite you can carry in a backpack and examine with a magnifying glass. There are the shelves of fossils, minerals, ooids and microstructures we all have somewhere in our houses, or boxed up waiting for a permanent residence. And then there are the Big Rocks. The ones Out West: the sandstones of Utah, the granodiorites of the Sierra Nevada Batholith, the gabbronorites of...”
U mad bro?
by The Chronicle
Jan 01, 2016
““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...”
