Editors' Note

(04/17/13 5:44am)

The idyllic spring weather that floods campus in the final weeks of school is always a sign of some new beginning, be it the start of college for the hordes of pre-frosh wandering campus, the beginning of an internship or a summer project, or the initiation to the “real world” for those of us seniors who are finally being forced out of the security of being “college students.”

Sugar and Spice

(03/27/13 6:14am)

This year has been a dream come true (literally) for Areli Barrera de Grodski and Leon Grodski de Barrera. In late January, the couple opened Cocoa Cinnamon—the brick-and-mortar version of their popular mobile coffee shop bikeCOFFEE—which has anchored their shared passions for aroma and taste to the corner of Geer and Foster Streets in downtown Durham. The shop itself is cozy—vintage, upholstered couches and colorful chairs seat 20-somethings in search of new surrroundings for conversation and writing. And the hand-ground coffee—infused with flavors like cardamom and cayenne—is noticabley delightful, even to a non-connoisseur. Here, Towerview’s Sonia Havele asks Areli (with a contribution from Leon) about the transformation of Cocoa Cinnamon from dream to reality.

The Richardsons

(09/28/12 3:16am)

Structural biology is a typically unromantic story. Few would compare the molecular structures of proteins and nucleic acids to the feelings we associate with love: affection, beauty, mystery and more. Yet, somehow, biophysicists Jane and Dave Richardson have integrated their love for learning, nature, art and most touchingly, each other, into their research and laboratory space at Duke University. The two have been married and collaborating on research together for nearly 50 years.

Lucey in the Sky with Diamonds

(03/13/12 3:56am)

Roger Lucey sits thoughtfully on a quilted mustard armchair in his quaint Durham home. Having been built and restored mostly by its owner, it reflects a life of South African adventure. Splashes of exotic color—from the red swinging bench on his front porch to the vibrant paintings which hang among hand-crafted flutes and acoustic guitars—offer hints about his inspiring and evocative past.

The vines of Argentina

(11/18/11 11:00am)

The Mendoza province of Argentina—set against the panoramic backdrop of the Andes and occupying a total area of around 57,000 square miles in the country’s far west—is best known as Argentina’s charming and illustrious wine country. In fact, Argentina is the fifth largest producer of wine in the world.

A dirty past

(11/04/11 9:00am)

Last Wednesday, Oct. 26, the Argentine Supreme Court sentenced former naval officer, Alfredo Astiz, to life in prison. Known and feared as “Él Ángel Rubio de la Muerte” (The Blonde Angel of Death), Astiz was found guilty of torture, murder and “forced disappearance” during Argentina’s right-wing military dictatorship of 1976 to 1983.

Palm trees and a catastrophe

(10/21/11 9:00am)

It is a running joke among Argentines that their vision of the entire United States is embodied by one city: Miami. In the Latino megalopolis of the United States, one need not speak a single word of English to get by. Hispanics make up a little over half of the 2.3 million residents living in Miami-Dade County, and Miami has more flights to Latin America than every other U.S. airport combined. However, the Argentine connection to South Florida stems deeper than a week sunbathing in South Beach. The early 2000s saw a spike in Argentine outflow due to the massive economic crisis, which commenced in 1999.
