Last Thursday, two vertical lines stared back at me from the circular crevice of the COVID-19 Antigen Test. At first, my Abbie-Hebert-TikTok-loving self lurched with joy at the positive result. But then I realized that Abbie Hebert and I were in two vastly different situations, and while the positivity of her pregnancy test ushered in a thousand new possibilities for her family, the positivity of my COVID-19 self-test was only the beginning of a series of hurdles for me.
It’s understandable that some students may find Duke’s masking policy a bit frustrating. Rushing to catch the C1 only to realize you forgot your mask in your dorm room is a feeling many of us know all too well. More often than not, a little self-compassion and generosity from a fellow Blue Devil are usually all you need to get yourself back on track. This isn’t always the case though. Sometimes no one has an extra mask to offer, you refuse to use the discarded mask on the ground, and the bus driver does not accept a scarf held over your mouth, and students can either choose to accept the loss or put up a fight with the bus driver who is just trying to do their job.
Duke's schedule is now complete.

Nowadays, I spend a lot of time on the mobile ordering app and Net Nutrition app. I scroll through different food options, trying to decipher what meal gives me the most amount of protein and calories. Ironically, it always ends up with Panda Express. Nevertheless, I usually continue my search for something at least somewhat healthy. Through my continued search, I usually despair, for every meal now is lavishly priced. Eventually, I just give up and choose something, food points chart be damned. When prices of essential goods rise, the middle class and lower class tend to suffer, and this case is no different.
If you’re familiar with quantum mechanics (because why wouldn’t you be) or a fan of The Big Bang Theory, then you’ve probably heard of Schrodinger’s cat. In simple terms, Schrodinger’s cat is a thought experiment where a cat is put into a box with something that could kill it (ex. a radioactive atom). The box is then sealed. Thus, until the box is opened, and the cat’s status can be empirically observed, the cat can be pronounced as both dead and alive.
Nothing screams back to school like wishing it was still summer. From listening to the same album until the sun comes up to binge watching the most ridiculous reality TV, the Recess staff compiled their favorite pieces of culture from a season that’s all about rotting your brain in the most nurturing way. Welcome back to campus! I know you are beyond excited for all the schoolwork you have to do now…
Walking into the visitor center of Duke Homestead, one might be surprised to see a small exhibit on the history of the Jews in North Carolina in the lobby. However, this is a fitting site for it, as the Duke family is strongly connected to the North Carolina Jewish community and employed Eastern European Jews as cigarette rollers in its factories. Because of these ties, the Duke Homestead requested to display the exhibit, which was created by Jewish Heritage North Carolina. Additionally, North Carolina’s Jewish population precedes the commercial tobacco industry which the center serves as a museum for. Similar to the other groups of people whose stories are represented in the museum, the Jews of North Carolina are also a diverse people whose origins span multiple continents and several centuries.
Five long years ago, JID splashed onto the rap scene from Atlanta. In 2017, he signed onto J.Cole’s record label, Dreamville, and released his debut studio album “The Never Story.” The following year, he was chosen as part of the Freshman Class list of up-and-coming rappers by XXL Magazine before releasing his second studio album “DiCaprio 2.” Then, after this impressive two-year stretch, he changed his output strategy: a keen eye scrolling through his Spotify page would promptly notice that his collaborative material from 2019 to 2021 greatly outnumbered any independent songs he released, with his most popular feature being on “Enemy” by Imagine Dragons. His guest verses, though, weren’t the reason I loved his music back then. While I appreciated his output in collaborative songs, I would have rather listened to music with his original voice and perspective. After making fans — myself among them — wait four long years, JID finally released his highly anticipated third studio album, “The Forever Story.”
The world woke Sept. 5 to massive billboards featuring a man stripped down to only his boxers and sunglasses while holding a cocktail. The man? Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. The reason for this scandalous display? Promoting his new single “Forget Me.”
Taylor Swift has quite a lot going on at the moment. In the midst of her re-recordings, press events to discuss “All Too Well: The Short Film” and work for David O’Russell’s film “Amsterdam,” the multihyphenate managed to find time to create her 10th studio album, “Midnights.” Per Swift’s announcement, “Midnights” will feature 13 currently unnamed tracks, each telling the story of a “sleepless night” throughout Swift’s life. “Midnights” follows the release of her most recent re-recording, “Red (Taylor’s Version)” and will be her first new studio album since the Dec. 2020 release of “evermore.”
Let me start by saying I would not consider myself a theater kid. Sure, I was a kid who did theater growing up, but that’s not my whole thing (as in, I don’t know the entire script of “Hamilton” by heart, and you won’t hear me harmonizing while singing “Happy Birthday”).
Duke football is back in action Saturday in Durham against North Carolina A&T. The Blue Devils, with ACC play just around the corner, will look to extend their record to 3-0, which hasn’t been done since 2018. Head coach Mike Elko’s squad is the clear favorite against the Aggies, and they’ll bring momentum from last week’s victory on the road against Northwestern as well as the support from fans in Wallace Wade Stadium, which is already sold out for Saturday. Will the beginning of the Elko era continue to impress? Let’s take a look at Aggie head coach Sam Washington’s team from Greensboro in order to get an idea.
