As Duke Chapter of the NAACP prides itself on its purpose to advance and uplift Black and Brown people at Duke and in Durham, we have the responsibility to endorse the candidate who we believe best upholds this mission. After deliberation, we are happy to endorse Leah Abrams for Young Trustee.
Over time, I’ve begun to realize the impact my shortcomings have at Duke. I think there was a sort of ignorance I’ve had to convince myself of many times during my life—that it does not matter where I’ve come from, that with enough hard work and determination I can achieve anything I want.
It's Haley Gorecki’s world. The Tar Heels are just living in it.
A performance like this comes around once every hundred years, or in Duke’s case, once every hundred games.
I can’t help but like Bernie Sanders. I‘m convinced of his sincerity, of his genuine yearning for an equitable America. I admire his dogged commitment, a character trait that is manifest in his established record of ideological consistency. I am reassured by the urgency he exudes, believing as I do in the precarity of our present moment. Although I am not quite “feeling the Bern,” I’ll say this: Sanders is the sole Democrat I would consider supporting.
Take a close look at the picture above. A serene lake in the lower right side balances the extended fingers of the one in the upper left, bookending the dominating Duke Chapel tower between them. The Chapel itself seems to stare intensely at the bird through whose eyes we are looking, spreading its stone wings of academic and residential cottages in direct challenge to the feathers of our avian proxy.
After initially including only combustible tobacco products like cigarettes, cigars and hookahs in a “smoke-free” campus policy set to go in effect July 1, Duke has now added e-cigarettes and vaping products to the ban.
The Young Trustee race is in full swing, and the four candidates stopped by Wednesday evening to speak with Duke Student Government. Read the speeches from seniors Maryam Asenuga, Tim Skapek, Ibrahim Butt and Leah Abrams in the order in which they spoke. Their remarks have been lightly edited for clarity.
Free parking around Duke can be quite difficult to come by. It just got more difficult.
This is part two of a three-part series about the raucous history of Duke students burning benches after major basketball victories. Here are part one and part three.
We thank Victoria Priester for her opinion piece in the Chronicle and for making her voice heard on issues of great importance to this campus. We value all our undergraduate majors and minors and take their perceptions of the Duke English Department very seriously.
Duke will travel eight miles down 15-501 Saturday afternoon, searching for its first victory against Tobacco Road rival North Carolina in Chapel Hill since 2016.
It’s always a huge game when North Carolina ventures into Cameron Indoor Stadium.
After struggling to put away a weak but feisty Boston College team for much of the evening, Duke finally pulled away late in the second half for a tough road victory. The Blue Zone gives you three takeaways, stats and looks forward for the Blue Devils:
Amid the current outbreak of a novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China, hospitals throughout the United States are preparing treatment plans for patients infected with the virus. Duke University Hospital is no exception.
Aneil Karia made his Sundance Film Festival debut with “Surge,” a psychological thriller that stars Ben Whishaw as Joseph, a troubled young man who lives an isolated life in London as an airport security officer. Joseph’s simmering disturbances, including his discomfort with social interaction and inability to assert himself, are catalyzed into a chaotic breakdown. The fallout takes him on a violent and metamorphic trip across the city. “Surge” is also Karia’s feature film debut after more than a decade working on short films and television. Karia’s short film “Work” was nominated for a British Academy Film and Television Award (BAFTA) in 2018.
Filmmaker Zeina Durra returned to Sundance this year with her newest film “Luxor,” starring Andrea Riseborough and Karim Saleh. Set in Luxor, Egypt, the film chronicles the trauma of Riseborough’s character, Hana, who is struggling to grapple with her past as a U.K. aid worker. As she rekindles her love with Saleh’s character, Sultan, and explores the city filled with forgotten memories, Hana begins to heal and process her experiences.
On Jan. 26, NBA legend and Academy Award winner Kobe Bryant tragically passed away in a helicopter crash. When news of his death first broke from TMZ, I thought it couldn’t be true. No way could such an iconic basketball legend be taken away from this world so quickly. I could still vividly remember watching him drop 60 points in his last game against the Utah Jazz in arguably the greatest farewell performance of all time, just like it was yesterday. But as the flood of news reports started to come in, I slowly came to accept that it was true — that Kobe Bryant, the Black Mamba, had died. Overwhelmed with sadness and shock, I broke down and cried.
Last semester, I learned about the importance of collaboration in music. Lennon and McCartney, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn and even Billie Eilish and brother Finneas O’Connell exemplify how cooperation is necessary for a prosperous music career. But how does marriage impact collaboration, and how does working together impact a relationship? Married Americana duo Drew and Ellie Holcomb demonstrate that the art of give-and-take is crucial to strengthening all relationships — personal and professional.
Now that rap has overtaken rock as the most profitable genre, it is reasonable to view hip-hop as its own economy. The genre itself operates on a modified boom and bust cycle. There are booms, which see expansion culminate in a peak, and busts, in which rap contracts into a trough.
