On September 11, 2001, I was studying abroad in the Netherlands, when the first of two planes piloted by terrorists slammed into the World Trade Center. I will never forget arriving at the only television in our dorm just in time to see the second plane collide with its target. Any hope that the first had been a mistake was instantly shattered, and the only world in which I had lived, one in which America was blessed with peaceful prosperity, was wiped away with it.

After a disappointing, yet promising performance against Notre Dame in the season-opener last week, the Blue Devils will return home to a fan-less Wallace Wade Stadium Saturday at 12 p.m. to face Boston College, who will kick off its season.

Why I'm a digital reactionary

I was born in the house my father built, but it was ruled by my mother, Ann. It was 1998, and the analog world was crumbling in the face of the digital revolution.

(09/17/20 4:00am)

Pop culture has long ridiculed the absurdity of anti-vaxxers, painting a humorous stereotype of unhinged parents clinging on to conspiracy theories and scepticism. Their objections to vaccinations can be catastrophic for their children and communities, and their reasoning and anti-science attitudes seem laughable.

Behind the scenes of The Lodge with TikTok food vlogger and Duke RA Ben Wallace

(09/16/20 5:56pm)

We have all heard the myths passed down by whispers about life inside the gray walls and glass windows of The Lodge, located at Duke Medical Center, now home to the Dukies identified through contact tracing. Although some may focus on the rooming amenities of The Lodge, I wondered, on a scale of Marketplace to West Union, how appetizing is the food at The Lodge? I decided, precautions in mind, to speak on Zoom to an actual student in the trenches.
