Two years ago, I took my wife to the Clemson vs. Duke game in Cameron and was surprised to find that I was able to buy a ticket behind the benches in what used to be student-only seating. My first response was to be disgusted with my alma mater, assuming they had kicked students out of these seats so they could sell them. I then found out that the most likely truth was that the students simply weren’t filling these seats, even for conference home games. Last night I witnessed with embarrassment a “TV-side” student section that was empty from the baseline extended! For a home conference game vs. Miami (who has beat us five times in recent years) on ESPN. Unbelievable. A full, loud, and appropriately rowdy student section has been a key ingredient to success for the past forty years. Don’t take victory for granted. Y'all need to step up your game.
In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was sentenced to an eternity of rolling a boulder up a hill just to watch it roll back down again. I’d imagine Haley Gorecki feels much of the same in the midst of a season like this.
As we near the NBA All-Star break, the Blue Zone gives you a recap of some of the best recent performances from former Blue Devils:
“1917” has taken the awards circuit by storm with its technologically innovative and visually striking approach to the war film genre. Written and directed by Sam Mendes, the film follows two British soldiers as they embark on the ambitious overnight mission to reach the British army’s 7th Division before they march into massacre. The pair faces the prospect of navigating “no man’s land,” a mud marsh containing booby traps and populated only by corpses, in broad daylight in order to reach the German front line and deliver their message in time. “There’s only one way this ends,” Colonel MacKenzie (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) declares hauntingly. “Last man standing.”
In a debate-filled meeting Wednesday night, the Duke Student Government Senate amended their election rules and procedures and passed an unusual amendment to a piece of funding legislation.
It was the best ice cream in town. It was in the heart of Durham and its black community. Yet it was a site of segregation. When, on June 23, 1957, seven African American students led by Rev. Douglas Moore visited Royal Ice Cream Parlor and sat in the section reserved for white customers and refused to leave, they were arrested and later appealed their case to the Supreme Court.
After a year and a half, the family of beloved rapper Mac Miller has decided to release “Circles,” Miller’s sixth studio album that he had been working on prior to his death in 2018. Intended to be a companion album to Miller’s wildly successful previous record, “Swimming,” “Circles” continues Miller’s discussion of themes like depression, personal growth and pushing through life’s hardships. And while “Circles” once again provides a beautifully honest and raw introspective look into Miller’s troubled mind, its repetitiveness keeps it from reaching the high standard that his past works have set.
Four courses prepared with the precision of an esteemed chef for $15, a rotating menu with profits going to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, merely six seats per dinner and all of it in an apartment at 300 Swift—meet The Black Tile.
The Blue Devils were able to put consecutive losses behind them, thrashing the visiting Miami Hurricanes 89-59. Duke led from wire to wire, moving the ball effectively against the multiple defenses that Miami utilized and locking down the Hurricanes’ high ball screen action on the other end. The Blue Zone is here to give you three overall takeaways, three key stats and a look ahead to the future for Duke:
The music of Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” usually evokes an image of a graceful ballerina en pointe. But what if the ballet classic was reimagined to accompany the high-powered movements of professional athletes?
Over six months after making his scintillating preseason debut, Zion Williamson will finally appear in an NBA game tonight. Williamson has missed the past six months recovering from a torn meniscus with the rookie having surgery on his knee in October. The Pelicans decided to be overly cautious with his rehab, and he now takes the pro hardwood for the first time.
I remember opening the refrigerator in the Crowell common room last semester to find nine half-eaten Sazon meals. Yesterday, I watched as a Duke Dining employee threw away an incorrectly made Tokyo Bowl and began again. Try as some of us may to conserve resources, we waste food that many struggle to afford each day.
Chances are you haven’t seen the recently-released major motion picture Cats. But you’ve heard of it. You’ve been told it’s an affront to the senses. Maybe you’ve even seen the trailer or read the articles belaboring its “nightmare-inducing” visuals.
It's worse than anyone ever thought possible. Snatched from the foul, frothing maw of China’s depraved security state, the Xinjiang Papers reveal the extent of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) crimes against the Uyghur Muslims of East Turkestan.
When Halsey confesses, “Man, I’m a f—ing liar,” at the close of her new album “Manic,” on track “929,” it comes as a revelation that, perhaps ironically, “Manic” is the most truthful work of Halsey’s career.
This year, smoking policies are changing on both the federal and campus level. Not only are there now greater nationwide age restrictions when buying tobacco products, but Duke is launching a Smoke-Free Campus initiative this summer. Looking at the history of smoking, its advertisements and its relation to Duke’s campus can help us understand the impact and intentions of these changes.
If you’re not keeping up with college radio in the Triangle, it’s time to tune in.
On Jan. 5, Awkwafina became the first performer of Asian descent to win a Golden Globe award for lead actress in a motion picture. While her performance as Billi in “The Farewell” may have been the first time I have seen a character who looks like me authentically portrayed on the big screen, her win does not come without a bitter aftertaste. For many Asian Americans, myself included, her history-making recognition validates the importance of seeing ourselves represented in film. Yet we cannot ignore the fact that Awkwafina’s win also rewards a career-long exploitation of Black culture for personal gain.
“Did you like abroad better than Duke?”
Duke may be dancing in September, but cloudy days await for the Blue Devils.
