CHAPEL HILL—The Blue Devils struggled to get much going offensively this half, but a strong defensive effort managed to keep things close at Kenan Memorial Stadium, with North Carolina leading 7-3. Here are some quick observations and stats from the first half of Duke's matchup with the Tar Heels.
After jumping out to an early 3-0 lead, Duke unbelievably fell to Pittsburgh Friday night, a low point of a disappointing 2019 for the team.
Prior to each Duke football game, The Chronicle’s Evan Kolin, Ramona Naseri, Derek Saul, Shane Smith and Dilan Trivedi make their predictions for the contest and we’ll track their records throughout the season. Here are their takes on the Blue Devils’ matchup with North Carolina Saturday:
After suffering a 48-14 drubbing at the hands of the Virginia Cavaliers just seven days gone, the Duke Blue Devils will look to rebound against an up-and-down North Carolina squad. Here are the Blue Zone’s three keys to the Saturday matinee:
The Sherry and John Woo Center for Big Data and Precision Health (DAP), which opened last year, hosted the first annual DAP symposium Oct. 24. The center plans to continue with this event for years to come as medicine grows more connected and exact.

Point of view: It’s Saturday morning, and I’m late. I walk into CAARE just as the Durham For All rally is ending. I’m here because I’m supposed to be writing this column about politics, but I got sick of the presidential election. So I switched to the local channel.
It was a perfect night for soccer at Koskinen Stadium, but the result was much of the same for the Blue Devils as the rest of the season: yet another tie.
From sex and money, to gender and sexuality, to bigotry and empathy, to loneliness and betrayal, there are certain topics that are undoubtedly hard to discuss. As young adults, these ideas become even more complicated, and art can help us understand them. After six weeks of arranging, choreographing and rehearsing, Hoof ‘n’ Horn presented “Cabaret” Oct. 17, an energetic yet reflective musical that sparks conversations about contentious issues.
At long last.
In the first week of my Civic Engagement FOCUS class, we were instructed to write about one issue that distressed us most about our, thus far, limited perspective on campus culture. I finished my paper in fifteen minutes--there was not one single issue I, as a female-identifying student, was more aware of than lack of a certain culture: consent. It’s as subtle as a waist-grab at Shooters, a sudden hand-on-the-back at Devine’s, an unwanted and unspoken invitation to dance, marked by the drunken presence of a boy standing a bit too close. It’s as overt and violent as the 48 percent of undergraduate women--and this percentage is most likely under-representative--surveyed in 2018 reporting having been sexually assaulted since their enrollment at Duke.
With the NBA regular season now underway, the Blue Zone gives you an update on how some former Blue Devils fared in their season openers:
While working in the field of eviction diversion, I saw family after family struggling to make rent in overpriced apartments. Many of these folks had grown up in Durham and watched it change into a different city, one in which increased development and a new trendy sheen had sky-rocketed the cost of living. Now, as noted in a 2019 report published by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, a person in Durham must work 2.8 full-time minimum-wage jobs in order to afford fair market rent for a two-bedroom apartment. If a person can no longer meet this financial hurdle and is evicted, the eviction becomes a permanent mark on their rental background and credit history. In a city like Durham, where the demand for housing is always rising, it often means that finding another place to live in the Bull City will be impossible.
