Beyond the arc: Duke men's basketball receives a miracle in Chapel Hill

(02/09/20 11:14pm)

While some may say Duke’s 98-96 overtime win against North Carolina was hot garbage and another example of the Blue Devils playing down to lesser opponents, no one can deny that this was the most exciting game of the season. Now, as the college basketball world sits slack-jawed, the Blue Zone is here to give you three key takeaways, stats and a look forward for the Blue Devils:




‘Jojo Rabbit’ is a heavy-handed but moving satire of Nazism

(02/09/20 4:56pm)

About a minute into “Jojo Rabbit,” the film’s 10-year-old protagonist has a conversation with his imaginary friend — Adolf Hilter. The young Jojo Betzler (played by Roman Griffin Davis) is about to go on a Hitler Youth training weekend, and Hitler (director Taika Waititi) gives him some words of encouragement before the two practice, repeatedly, the proper way to say “heil Hitler.” So begins a strange entry in the canon of films about Nazi Germany.


Letter: Duke grad workers demand a fair contract

(02/10/20 5:00am)

Across the country, workers are under attack. A recent decision by Trump’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) threatens to roll back graduate workers’ right to form a union. Without union rights and contract guarantees, graduate workers—especially those of us who are not men, who are not white, who are from low-income backgrounds, who are not US citizens, who support families and who struggle with mental health—are vulnerable to bottom lines and abusive work environments, rather than guaranteed the protections and benefits we deserve.

(02/09/20 7:27am)

CHAPEL HILL—Down 13 with under four minutes left in regulation, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski and his squad faced the prospect of being on the receiving end of an embarrassing loss to a severely under-powered conference rival. Krzyzewski needed to pull a rabbit out of a hat to save the evening.







Duke men's lacrosse looking to right the ship against High Point

(02/08/20 3:25pm)

For the second year in a row, Duke dropped one of its first two games of the year last Saturday, falling at home to unranked Air Force. This week, the Blue Devils have a chance to get back on track following their surprising loss to the Falcons against the school that shocked them in their home opener last year: No. 20 High Point. 


Duke Political Union endorses Ibrahim Butt for Young Trustee

(02/07/20 8:24pm)

Duke Political Union is excited to announce our endorsement of Ibrahim Butt for Young Trustee. We believe Ibby will represent the interests of DPU and the larger Duke community as a young voice on the Board of Trustees. His prior experience as a student representative on the board makes him an extremely qualified candidate. DPU is enthusiastic about his commitment to academic freedom and values his ability to criticize decisions made about Duke Kunshan University in this fight for academic freedom for all students. We believe Ibby brings a critical global perspective to the board and will continue his incredible history of advocacy work to ensure all voices are heard in the Boardroom. DPU would also like to thank Maryam, Leah and Tim, who all shared inspiring messages and would be fantastic stewards of this University.
