Twenty-seven years after the terrifying events of “It” (2017), the Losers Club returns to Derry for a final showdown with Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard) in the recently-released “It Chapter Two.” The film features incredible performances, a phenomenal character driven story and stunning set pieces and special effects — but it’s just not that scary.
Valerie Ashby, dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, loves her job. Still, she recognizes there is important work to be done.
After easing into 2019 with a couple of slow starts offensively, the Blue Devils appear to have shaken off all the rust from the offseason in the course of their current three-game winning streak.
After “risk management” problems, Duke’s chapter of Delta Sigma Phi is now officially closed.
On the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a crowd gathered at the Sanford School of Public Policy to hear former diplomat Farah Pandith speak about combating violent extremism.
Foreign policy strategist Farah Pandith is a former diplomat and expert on countering violent extremism. In March 2019, she published a book on the topic entitled “How We Win: How Cutting-Edge Entrepreneurs, Political Visionaries, Enlightened Business Leaders, and Social Media Mavens Can Defeat the Extremist Threat.” Prior to her talk on Wednesday, the 18th memorial of 9/11, Pandith sat down with The Chronicle to discuss the history of terrorism and extremism in the United States and what action should be taken now. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
With less than two months until the start of college basketball, Duke finally has its road to March laid out.

When I strolled into the Ruby Lounge on a hot Friday morning, artist Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba was perched on a couch in the back of the room, staring pensively at his computer screen. He looked young and lively, with unruly brown hair and a smile that never quite left his face.

In episode three of the popular and increasingly controversial HBO series “Euphoria,” there is a sex scene. The show — which depicts the complicated, traumatizing lives and relationships of modern high school students — contains multiple instances of graphic intercourse, but this particular scene garnered intense backlash despite being an animated, ostensibly PG depiction of sex between two adults. What rattled audiences was not the erotic content: it was the fact that the two participants were Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson of the once-famous band One Direction.
The Duke Student Government Senate unanimously declined to recognize Young Life as an official Duke student group at its Wednesday meeting.
Thought Il Forno was going to the only vendor in the Brodhead Center to undergo renovations? Think again.
A quick scan of Greta Kline’s album-packed Bandcamp page reveals something curious: she can’t seem to settle on a name. Over the course of a few years and a few dozen albums, she goes from “ingrid superstar” to “ingrid” to “zebu fur” to “frankie cosmos.” And those are just the big ones — at times she’s also “greta,” “GRETA,” “the ingrates,” “Frankie Cosmos and the Emptiness” and “frankie cosmos & the emptiness.”
Move-in day was organized chaos. Mostly, it consisted of unpacking this, hanging that and breaking my alarm clock. By the end of the day, my room was perfect — almost. I just needed to do one more thing: put up my movie posters.
I spent this summer in New York, a cesspool of sights, sounds, and — mostly to its detriment — smells. Armed with a class and an internship and living just a few blocks from Union Square, my days filled quickly. Coming from Duke, I was used to this nonstop mindset, this rapid pace of living. It wasn’t until attending a poetry reading at a bookshop on Prince Street that I began to understand what this excessive busyness seemed to be leading me toward. A book with pink flowers on the cover caught my eye, along with its intriguing title: “How to Do Nothing.” While the book first piqued my interest through this attractive promise, the subheading, “Resisting the Attention Economy,” ultimately made me buy it.

The American South is an ever-changing landscape, its growing communities and dynamic businesses pushing the region away from strict definitions. With a dark history and rich culture, it’s convenient to describe the South as nothing more than a land of sweet tea and bitter discrimination. The New South, however, presents a progressive transformation from 19th-century Dixie. This fall, “Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South” illustrates the heartbreaking stories of the past and pluralistic identity of the present.
First-year Dylan Schneiderman walked out of Gross Hall with one mission on his mind—he had just more than an hour to persuade as many strangers as possible to play a game of tic-tac-toe.
