Since “Game of Thrones” reached its tumultuous conclusion with its final season, several shows in the larger fantasy and medieval drama genre have popped up, seeking to assume its mantle. From Netflix’s “The Witcher” to Amazon Prime’s “Wheel of Time,” many are attempting to follow in the wake of “Game of Thrones” and capture the acclaim and popularity of the seminal series. Now, there are two new claimants to the “Throne” of the “Game of Thrones,” released to differing degrees of success.
There are few things more certain than death and taxes. Perhaps one of these things is “Leo’s Law,” or the widely-circulated theory that 47-year-old actor Leonardo DiCaprio simply refuses to date women over 25. Following the star’s recent breakup with longtime girlfriend Camila Morrone, who turned 25 in June, this theory seems to have become all the more indisputable.

When I was in fourth grade, during the year of Barack Obama’s disastrous midterm elections, I had a young conservative teacher whom I’ll call Mrs. S. Mrs. S. was gleeful the day after the midterms. She triumphantly announced to our class that the Republican Party gained control of both chambers of the NC General Assembly for the first time in over 100 years, but, she added with a morose tone, our US Representative David Price held onto his seat in Washington. David Price is a Democrat. Nine-year-old me noticed the partisanship, and I shot my arms up in a V-shape for victory. Since I was seated at the back of the class, no one but Mrs. S. could see me.

Duke is off to a strong start this year, with a blowout win against Temple in Wallace Wade Stadium followed by a strong—but still tight—win against Northwestern on the road. Saturday, the Blue Devils will be back at home against North Carolina A&T. Here are five things to look for as Duke looks to open up a three-game winning streak to kick off the season.
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.
