Classroom politics: part one

(10/08/04 4:00am)

What follows is part one of my two-part political series. Since it is election season and every channel is covering politics, I figured that I should do a “political column.” But before you stop reading because you think I am like every other columnist at The Chronicle—a raging liberal or conservative who thinks I’m smarter than you—I’d like you just to bear with me. I’m not talking about governmental politics; I’m talking about classroom politics, about “the authoritative allocation of power” (Feaver, Sept. 9, 2004) in the classroom.

N.C. STATE: Wolfpack prepare for life after Rivers

(09/06/04 4:00am)

With the nation’s sixth-hardest schedule, N.C. State will undoubtedly have the opportunity to prove itself against some of the strongest teams in the nation. This will not be easy, however, after losing Philip Rivers, one of the most impressive quarterbacks in ACC history and Jerricho Cotchery, the Wolfpack’s leading receiver last season.

Welcome to Duke High

(09/03/04 4:00am)

When I came to Duke last August, I didn’t know exactly what to expect, and I was nervous when the time actually came. After spending four years in high school, I wasn’t really in the mood to make new friends, socialize and worst of all, pretend to care. Orientation was an awkward time, to say the least. And if I had to do it again, I wouldn’t. Alas, I was ready to leave high school, and I was ready to be an adult. Little did I know, I was entering a world that may be bigger than high school, but it has all the same characters. Welcome to Duke High.

Exhibition thriller ends in tie

(08/30/04 4:00am)

Before a large crowd Friday night, the men’s soccer team played its final exhibition match against the 18th-ranked Connecticut Huskies. Much of the game was a stalemate, as neither team was able to score until the last seven minutes. In dramatic fashion, Blake Camp tied the game at one goal apiece with only eight seconds remaining when his penalty kick slid under an outstretched UConn goalie.

I received a seemingly innocuous e-mail a couple of years ago, its subject bearing a rather enticing exclamation: "SOMEBODY HAS A CRUSH ON YOU!" My initial thought was that it was some sort of bait that would reveal, once opened, how I could increase the intensity of my sex life by taking an herbal supplement. But the message was not sent from some generic address; it was from I opened the message to find that, indeed, somebody had a crush on me. The e-mail included a link to a website advertising that you can anonymously submit the e-mail addresses of the people you like--all 20 of them. The cyber-cupid, in turn, will send your crushes an e-mail, much like the one I received, and your crush sends the site the e-mail addresses of his crushes. If they match, then--gee whiz!--you have yourself a love connection.
