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.

The world is asking me to taste it, but all my tongue knows is scarcity.
Freshman year is about trial and error. You start with a blank canvas without many of the expectations of the life you left behind. The newfound freedom is astounding. Soon, that canvas begins to be colored by the people you meet and the decisions you make: joining and staying in communities when you feel understood, and leaving when you don’t. I’m not saying this process is easy; it can take weeks, months or even years to finally feel like you have found the right people. But I do think this experimental process is essential to self-discovery. You uncover what you truly value in relationships and who makes you feel the best.
