Film room: Analyzing Duke men's basketball guard Max Johns

(4 hours ago)

A new era of Duke men's basketball is on the horizon, and with it comes an almost entirely new roster. In this series, the Blue Zone analyzes film on each of the Blue Devils' new signees and transfers for the 2022-23 season. We previously looked at Kale Catchings, Ryan Young, Jaden Schutt, Mark Mitchell, Dariq Whitehead, Dereck Lively II, Christian Reeves, Kyle Filipowski, Tyrese Proctor and Jacob Grandison. Finally, let's take a look at Max Johns:

Elegance as far as the eye can see: Cassilhaus hosts Elizabeth Matheson exhibition ‘Uncommon’

(10/05/22 10:00am)

Nestled in the woods between Durham and Chapel Hill lies a most unique venue of the Triangle’s arts culture: Cassilhaus, the “lifelong arts project” undertaken by Ellen Cassilly and Frank Konhaus that takes the form of a “dream home/art gallery/artist studio and residency.” Described as “a singular piece of architecture,” Cassilhaus plays host to several artist exhibitions each year and has been integrating the works into the permanent collection and stunning surroundings to fashion immersive exhibits since the late 2000s. Since its opening, the offerings and initiatives have expanded, but the core mission of bringing special artists to the Triangle has remained strong and been a resounding success.

No. 2 Duke men's soccer powers past Howard at home behind Frederick's early goal

(10/05/22 3:18am)

You may have heard the expression, “To be the best, you have to beat the best.” However, have you heard, “To be the best, you have to continue to beat the rest?" Though far less pleasing to the ear, the latter proved quite relevant as the second-ranked Blue Devils welcomed Howard to Koskinen Stadium Tuesday night. 

What's a criminal?

(10/05/22 4:00am)

On Tuesday, September 27, Duke students received an email about a robbery that occurred near the Center for Documentary Studies. The suspect was described as “male, medium-dark skin tone, late ’20s, dreadlocks with a black bandana, black hoodie and blue jeans”. Initially, I felt sympathy for this “victim”, whom I assumed was robbed of some electronic devices, until I received another email a few hours later that said no robbery or theft occurred at all. This student, I learned, reported the theft of a car—something much more valuable and difficult to steal than a MacBook or iPhone—went to great lengths to describe the young Black man who allegedly stole it and preyed on the fear of Durham that many students on campus still hold (a fear that is quite frankly amusing considering how removed Duke is from the Durham community). Then they made a conscious choice to weaponize the inherent fear of Black men that our society holds close.

On old friends

(10/05/22 4:00am)

A few weeks ago, I saw one of my closest friends for the first time in three years. He was taller—or my memory deceived me—but he laughed the same way (with all of his teeth out) and we joked about the same people and things. Having lived in London for high school, neither of us had any use for a car, but moving back to the States changed me mainly by forcing me to get my drivers’ license years after my American friends’ younger siblings got theirs. We had a great night in Princeton, and when I dropped him off at what might’ve been the world’s shadiest AirBnB. he remarked that he hoped it wouldn’t be another three years before we saw each other again. How much had changed in those three years—our career ambitions, our fears and hopes, and, ostensibly, our heights—but, really, so much had stayed the same, and the thought of waiting another three years for a few more hours together at dinner terrified both of us. We promised to call each other more often, as all old friends do, even though we knew we probably wouldn't, as all old friends do.  But we also understood that we didn’t need to talk often to stay friends.
