Facing North Carolina, Duke women's basketball puts undefeated ACC record on the line by The ChronicleJan 01, 2014 “Haley Peters left Chapel Hill last year with a smile on her face, despite the 17 freshly sewn stitches in her left cheek.
Peters bounced back from Tar Heel senior Chay Shegog’s ferocious, albeit inadvertent, elbow to finish with nine points and seven rebounds, leading the Blue Devils to a 69-63 victory.
The prospect of a little physicality has not left Duke’s 6-foot-3 junior apprehensive about the game—she looks forward to the energized environment. “[The rivalry has] always meant a lot...”

Mason Plumlee's 32 points lead Duke basketball past Wake Forest 75-70 by The ChronicleJan 01, 2014 “WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—Every time Duke tried to pull away, Wake Forest came right back.
The Demon Deacons (10-10, 3-5 in ACC) never backed off the No. 5 team in the nation until the final seconds ticked off the clock at Joel Coliseum when Duke (18-2, 5-2) pulled away for a 75-70 victory and its first road win of the season.
Both teams struggled to play a clean game, recording a combined 42 fouls and 32 turnovers. But as ugly as it was at points, Wake Forest had no answer for Mason Plumlee,...”
One of these things is not like the others by The ChronicleJan 01, 2014 “There are a number of essential principles that compose the fabric of who we are as a citizenry: freedom of speech, freedom to worship, freedom to wear white after Labor Day. These are the freedoms on which we agree—and many would say the agreement ends there (even if “winter white” continues to be divisive). We are bitterly divided on reproductive rights, on gay rights and on what one might term as gun rights. These topics of debate are united by the same fundamental tension—the pull between...”

Sympathy for the devil by The ChronicleJan 01, 2014 “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...”
Society, state and market: part II by The ChronicleJan 01, 2014 “Political debates of late have exhibited a tendency to deteriorate into accusations of socialism from the right and free-market fundamentalism from the left. (Of course, given the remarkable similarity of the Democratic and Republican parties, I think it’s safe to say that it’s socialists and free-market fundamentalists who are probably most upset by this). Last week, I illustrated this point by borrowing an argument from Trevor Burrus, a legal associate at the Cato Institute. Burrus observes...”
'Me Too' explores new narratives in fifth year by The ChronicleJan 01, 2014 “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...”
