In pursuit of presidential prestige

(02/03/20 5:00am)

Since December 26 when the Durham Housing Authority (DHA) was first notified of elevated carbon monoxide levels at McDougald Terrace Apartments, close to 900 residents have been evacuated and placed in hotels. At least nine residents have been hospitalized for carbon monoxide poisoning, and subsequent investigation has revealed abhorrent sewage, carbon monoxide leaks, and many failed federal inspections at the public housing complex. These revelations have prompted statements from local Representative David Price, the mayor of Durham Steve Schewel, and CEO of the housing authority Anthony Scott. Despite Schewel's effort to silence their protests during a recent City Council meeting, McDougald Terrace residents made their justified anger clear: they have lived in hotels and eaten unsubstantial food for three weeks, away from all they own, and they refuse to bear the violent brunt displacement for longer than they need to.




Letter: Increasing racism in the Coronavirus pandemic

(02/04/20 5:00am)

In the last few years, there has been a noticeable shift in the rise of anti-Chinese tensions in the United States. These tensions have been expressed in the trade debate, the presidential stage and the oncoming McCarthyism on college campuses. The recent media coverage is also beginning to display an anti-Chinese urge in renaming the Coranavirus the “Chinese Flu.”

‘Stag at Sharkey’s’ celebrates the beauty of the human form

(02/01/20 6:49pm)

Anyone who knows me knows that I bear what some might describe as an alarming allegiance to Cleveland, Ohio, the city I call home. In fact, I once (somewhat jokingly) described Cleveland as the cultural capital of the world. While that assertion is questionable at best, I truly do believe it whenever I go to the Cleveland Museum of Art.



Cameron Chronicles Season 3, Episode 6: 'Shut Up!'

(02/01/20 6:23pm)

In what was supposed to be a relatively uneventful week with one game against Pittsburgh, Mike Krzyzewski sparked a big discussion after confronting the Cameron Crazies over a chant directed at former Blue Devil Jeff Capel. While the college basketball world talked about that incident, Duke has quietly reached the midway point of conference play as we turn into February. Hosts Derek Saul and Shane Smith are back with another episode of the Cameron Chronicles to get you caught up on everything to do with Duke basketball.

Letter: Eat your own lunch before you eat somebody else's

(01/31/20 6:04am)

Most days, I find myself in the basement of the Bryan Center eating a sausage McGriddle from Mcdonald’s while trying to rush to class. I don’t dream about the school paper but I read it from time to time. One day, as I chewed on my delicious $3.29 sandwich, I was astounded to find an article in the Duke Chronicle disparaging the financial sector and those that express interest or pursue careers in it.
