We’re all well-familiar with the age-old claim that it is permissible to leave class if the professor is 15 minutes late. But, as we ditch the 8:30 schlep to Gross Hall for online class, we must prepare for a new scenario: What happens if the class video link is a road to nowhere?
Long before mental health initiatives made waves in mainstream media, Britney Spears was the voice that nourished the soul of a generation. With tracks like “Work Bitch” that empower us to persevere in our life hustles, the Princess of Pop resides in Gen Z minds and her hottest albums are squeezed into just about any early '00s playlist. While that side of the pop star keeps singing, it’s hard to imagine that a completely opposite life off-screen was molded for her 12 years ago.
In 2004, the Killers dropped one of the best debut albums of the 21st century. “Hot Fuss” gave us “Mr. Brightside” and “All These Things That I’ve Done.” Their second album, “Sam’s Town,” was even better. It seemed like the band was on a clear path of improving and creating grand synth-pop and pop rock records. While they did continuously release extremely catchy songs, the problem with the third, fourth and fifth albums was the monotony. There was little evolution in musical composition or lyrical prowess. When the band announced the release date of their sixth album, I was met with a great contradiction between what I wanted and what I expected from the album. I wanted the Killers’ style but with a fresh and unique spin; however, I expected the same sound they’d been using for 20 years.
Duke football announced some unfortunate news Wednesday afternoon.
2019 season: 7-6, 4-4 in the ACC (5th in the Coastal Division)
For the first time in Duke’s history, the annual Heatwave concert was held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday, Aug. 28.
As students returned to campus during a pandemic, the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences announced changes to its satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading policy.
On Aug. 17, as Duke students everywhere were just rolling out of bed, Durham public school students were logging in to their first online class of the school year.
The coronavirus has generated numerous challenges for the upcoming November election, among them the recruitment of poll workers.
Last Thursday, Duke men's basketball Director of Operations & Player Development Nolan Smith organized a Black Lives Matter protest in Krzyzewskiville. After Smith, head coach Mike Krzyzewski and others took the stage, freshman Henry Coleman III closed out the protest with a powerful speech of his own.
Editor's note: This article has been altered to reflect Duke's newly-announced schedule that was released Sept. 4.
The climate crisis is often framed as just another “social issue.” Well, it’s one hell of an issue. Here are some fresh new highlights: we are currently living through an incredibly fast mass extinction, the rapid destruction of ecosystems critical for human survival and permanent shifts in the water systems civilization is built along. For those not particularly concerned about other species, sea level rise alone is projected to force hundreds of millions of people from their homes in the next thirty years (around when your kids start college), swallow our most valuable cities, undermine breadbaskets of the world and spark dangerous social cascades resulting from the cumulative weight of the chaos. Not to mention, if we keep chugging recklessly forwards, we can unlock climate tipping points that will unleash fun new horsemen of the apocalypse, like trillions of locusts triggered by increased cyclones. Or melting permafrost awakening ancient plagues from their icy cocoon. To complicate matters further, the eco-fascists (and regular fascists) are here—both the Christchurch and El Paso shootings were motivated by an alt-right ideology that incorporates population control for environmental purity. I honestly was bored watching the last “Mission Impossible” because the stakes seemed lower and the mission more possible than the project of stabilizing our biosphere while also dealing with the endless pile of existential garbage.
With COVID-19 precautions in mind, Duke encourages their on-campus students to only bring essential items. I consider snacks one of them.
How do we remember our history?

Nine months into a year characterized by a global pandemic, many of us have been thrust uncomfortably close to the idea of death — much closer than six feet. National and global death tallies are repeatedly plastered on our news and social media feeds. Right now, an open chat with strangers about death may be just what we didn’t know we needed.
