Duke women's lacrosse 2024 season preview

(02/08/24 9:42pm)

It was a bit of a rocky road last year for Duke. After a stellar 2022 regular season that featured a consistent top-10 ranking, the Blue Devils struggled pretty immediately in the postseason, falling in their first matchup of the ACC tournament and in their second of the NCAA tournament. The disappointment only continued into 2023. Conference play was Duke’s Achilles’ Heel. After a 6-2 ACC slate in 2022, the Blue Devils ended at 1-8 in the 2023 regular season. 

Jonathan Glazer’s ‘The Zone of Interest’: Understanding evil and representing suffering

(02/08/24 7:57pm)

Hedwig Höss (Sandra Hüller) discusses her love of her well-kept garden. The camera cuts between marigolds, sunflowers and roses, finally landing on a single hibiscus. Its red hue slowly envelopes the entirety of the screen. The silent beauty of the garden is overtaken by a droning, rumbling bass that is intermixed with anonymous suffering. The noise is that of the Auschwitz-Birkenau crematoriums. Hedwig’s husband, Rudolph (Christoph Friedel), is its commandant and their family lives on the other side of the camp’s walls.

Kyle Filipowski opened up the Blue Devils’ first possession with a turnover. Two possessions later, he would miss a layup, followed by a personal foul.

Duke softball 2024 season preview

(02/08/24 4:26am)

A couple decades down the line, Duke fans will look to this year as a pivotal one in the trajectory of the Blue Devils’ youngest varsity team to date. In its sixth season of existence last year, “Team Six” earned the right to host the program’s first NCAA Super Regional in a campaign that saw Duke establish itself as one of the better teams in the country. However, at the tournament, the Blue Devils still stood just short of the best. With the wind in its sails after a strong run in the ACC tournament, punctuated by freshman ace Cassidy Curd’s no-hitter, Duke welcomed Stanford to town, and was brought back down to earth in a two-game sweep.

Megan Thee Megalodon: How 'HISS' complements her metamorphosis

(02/07/24 8:24pm)

Three-time Grammy award winner Megan Thee Stallion is an artist with an intuitive understanding of what it means to use the darkness of trauma to rebirth oneself in the light. It's something that she is all too familiar with: at the same time that she was experiencing career milestones, she was also going through legal disputes with her label as well as the death of her parents. In 2020, the underwhelming, currently imprisoned rapper Tory Lanez shot Megan Thee Stallion twice in the foot, leading to yet another lengthy legal dispute as she fought for the liberation of her truth. And yet, Megan has persisted in releasing high quality music, partaking in lengthy photoshoots and consistently self-advertising to increase her publicity within the industry. Once Megan Thee Stallion’s lawsuit with her old label settled and she gained artistic independence, she released the entirely self-funded masterpiece “Cobra,” in which she unveiled her birth last November. Furthering the cobra’s symbolism of resurrection and renewal, Thee Stallion released “HISS” on Jan. 26.

The poetic art of naming things is old and difficult. If you’re familiar with a certain cosmic creation narrative, it may even be considered the first act of mankind after receiving the breath of life. But while you may think the long and storied human experience in naming things would mean we find it easy, you have only to look at Duke’s nascent residential model to find a potent example of how difficult it seemingly remains.

Springtime is upon us. With that comes warmer weather, delicate flower buds, longer days and a newfound feeling of freshness that comes with all things new. Spring is peeling the protective film off a new iPhone. Spring is folding clothes that are warm, fresh out of the dryer. Spring is taking a cold shower on a hot day.
