The same sky: ‘Museum of the Moon’ exhibition encourages community engagement

(10/24/19 4:03am)

One small step for man, one giant inflatable moon balloon for Durham. From Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, Luke Jerram’s “Museum of the Moon” exhibition will illuminate CCB Plaza as part of Bull Moon Rising, a community event celebrating the intersection of history, science and art. The event is part of Durham 150, the 150th anniversary of the city’s incorporation, as well as the statewide Lift Off NC: Apollo + Beyond campaign, aimed at exposing newer generations to the space-based programs fifty years after Apollo 11.


How hookup culture is changing sexual norms

(10/25/19 4:00am)

Hookup culture dominates the social scene of American college campuses today, including Duke. Although most people reading this are probably familiar with the term, it is defined as a culture “that accepts and encourages casual sex encounters, including one-night stands and other related activity, without necessarily including emotional bonding or long-term commitment.” 


Crate-digging in the age of Spotify

(10/24/19 4:00am)

I tend to discover music in one of two ways: either from the usual cycle of new releases and album reviews, or from a chance trip down the rabbit hole of Spotify’s related-artists feature. The second option seems to make up more and more of my listening habits these days, and it’s remarkably fruitful — by the end of a feverish two-hour span I may have compiled an entire playlist dedicated to a single subgenre, and the endless doors opened by each artist within that subgenre mean it might be weeks, or months, before that particular phase is through. And even then, I still feel as if I’ve barely scratched the surface of all the music that’s out there.

Have questions about Coach K's tenure at Duke? The Chronicle wants to hear them

(10/30/19 4:00am)

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is at the pinnacle of his profession. The winningest Division I men's basketball coach of all time arrived at Duke in 1980, beginning the Blue Devils' transformation from a lackluster program into a perennial title contender. During that period, Coach K managed to nab three Naismith Coach of the Year Awards, five national championships and 15 ACC tournament championships.




Why Tzipi Livni is a peacemaker (and not a war criminal)

(10/23/19 6:20pm)

This Wednesday, former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni will be visiting Duke, hosted by the Grand American Strategy program. Prior to Livni’s arrival, The Chronicle published a column accusing Livni of committing war crimes. These claims are a gross misconstruction of the truth. To the contrary, Livni is an upstanding peacemaker and a model for all of us at Duke.
