Sweaty palms. Rapid heartbeat. Butterflies in your stomach. Anthropologists say it's caused by an innate instinct to procreate; neuroscientists attribute it to the release of chemicals in the brain. Others claim love cannot be defined so easily and involve certain aspects of the divine. So what's the truth? Why do we fall head over heels in love?
In a heated meeting that lasted four and a half hours Monday night, City Council members and Durham residents gathered to discuss issues including property rights, housing, transportation and safety.
A group of more than 250 students gathered in front of Baldwin Auditorium Saturday morning for the start of Into the City, an annual community service event co-sponsored by the Community Service Center and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
So a bunch of gophers are located in front of a bunch of gopher holes. Only one gopher is allowed in each hole. The gophers have exactly T number of seconds to reach the hole before they get eaten by a hawk, and you can spare a certain number of gophers. What’s the least amount of time needed to save all the gophers that need to be saved?
If you have $8 million to spare, you might consider using it to have Duke’s new nursing building named after you.
Thanks to Google, it may one day be possible to avoid all those overdue library charges by reading all books online. Recently, colleges such as the University of Michigan and Harvard University have collaborated with the search engine Google.com in pilot programs to digitize volumes in their libraries.
This year, it hasn"t just been students grumbling about the frigid weather and the rules of Krzyzewskiville--it"s been professors and parents, too.
In second grade, my teacher prompted us to enter BOOK IT!—a competition where you read books for points that earned you a free pizza at Pizza Hut. Ecstatic that I could I could combine two of my favorite pastimes—eating and reading—I delved into the eccentric world of that zany housekeeper Amelia Bedelia, that magical babysitter Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and my all time favorite crime-fighting orphans, the Boxcar Kids, earning my way toward many a free personal pan pizza. Reading was an activity where I could transcend my mundane polo shirt, plaid skort life whose most exciting exploits included struggling to memorize times tables and swapping stickers to obtain the “greatest sticker collection ever.” “Reading,” as the corny free bookmarks they passed out at the library said, “was an adventure.”
My boyfriend came to visit me last year and eager to show him Duke in all its glory, I spent the subsequent days showing him around all the obligatory visitor hotspots.
As the elections approach and I glumly realize that a woman has still not become president, I’ve begun thinking a lot about gender stereotypes and equality for women. But wait! Before half of my readers flip the page and become engrossed with finding a four-letter synonym for “aspersion,” stop. You play a part in this as well (and not just as a source of the problem either). You also have the power to create a fairer, more educated society through simple steps that can have great impact.
Eat with your mouth closed!” “Say please!” “Keep your elbows off the table!” These are just some of the typical phrases that bombarded me in my youth as I sat down for a meal with my family. “It isn’t fair,” I thought, as I drank some Juicy Juice from my plastic sip cup. After all, it wasn’t as if Chick-a-saurus (chicken in the shape of your favorite dinosaurs!) could be considered fine dining, so I didn’t understand why we had to act like we were in an elegant restaurant. But it was the principle of the thing, my parents told me. If I didn’t learn to eat or behave correctly now, then I never would in the future.
