Blue Devil Chick-Fil-A, Subway to close in May Heyman dies at 71 Duke basketball legend Art Heyman has died at the age of 71, according to the team’s official Twitter account. The cause of death has not yet been released. Heyman played on the varsity squad at Duke from 1961-1963, earning ACC Player of the Year and National Player of the Year honors in his senior season. He took the Blue Devils to the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament that year, losing in the Art Heyman semifinals to the eventual champion Loyola Chicago. He averaged a double-double in all three of his seasons at Duke, finishing the three years with an average of 25.1 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. Heyman’s jersey No. 25 is one of 12 men’s basketball jerseys that currently hangs from the rafters at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Heyman was known for his fiery attitude, famously getting in a fight against a North Carolina squad featuring Larry Brown in 1961. With 1,984 career points at Duke, he graduated with the school record. He now ranks ninth on the team’s all-time list. —from Staff Reports

Both Chick-Fil-A and Subway will be leaving campus at the end of this academic year, said Rick Johnson, associate vice president of housing and dining. With West Union Building renovations fast approaching, neither popular chain restaurants will be part of the group of facilities moving to the events pavilion. The building—just northwest of Kilgo dormitory and behind the Bryan Center—will temporarily house dining options as West Union undergoes renovations, beginning summer 2013.

or in the finished West Union Building. “[Chick-Fil-A] was told last year that the West Union was closing summer 2013 and they would not be in the new West Union—the same for Subway,” he said in an email Monday. “The vision for the new West Union is modeled on Eataly in New York City, so there will be no fast food brands in the new West Union.” Johnson added that the events pavilion will be too small to accommodate all of the eateries that currently occupy the West Union Building. The cost of building and then removing a fast food chain after two years was also too high to justify a place for either vendor. Both Subway and Chick-Fil-A hold

Although Duke extended its two-year partnership with the Bull City Connector, low University rider rates are making administrators reevaluate the relationship. Earlier this month, Duke contributed $350,000 to help subsidize the operation costs of the bus line through 2013. Although the University’s donation will cover 30 percent of the BCC’s operating costs for 2013, Duke is still assessing whether to continue to support the line into the future as it is unclear how many students and staff regularly use the bus.

Reports of plagiarism have led to stricter enforcement of the honor code in online courses. Coursera, the platform for Duke’s free online courses which will be offered starting as early as this Fall, has updated its website to better emphasize the honor code. The change was implemented after multiple incidents of plagiarism on essay assignments were reported by students, according to an Aug. 16 article in the Chronicle of Higher Education. Students now have to a check a box reaffirming their dedication to the honor code before submitting any essay assignment. Provost Peter Lange said he was not

Q&A with Sarah Cohen the others?” That was a process of triangulating heavily censored records across different systems and trying to account for every child that died that had been reported to the Child Fatality Committee. We got heavily censored, redacted records from the Child Fatality Committee. It took a year to put it all together, reading and coding these forms for 300 to 400 kids.

A noted journalist left Duke this summer to return to her trade. Sarah Cohen, former Knight professor of the practice of journalism and public policy, moved to the computer-assisted reporting team at the New York Times in July. She won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting for a series on deaths in Washington, D.C.’s child welfare system. The Chronicle’s Julian Spector spoke with Cohen in June about her approach to investigative reporting, the prospects for newspapers and advice for aspiring journalists. The Chronicle: You specialize in computer-assisted data analysis for investigative journalism. What does that involve? Sarah Cohen: A lot of work I’ve done is figuring out how to measure the unmeasurable. For instance, if we want to figure out how much money is going to drought payments where there is no drought, a lot of it is working with very large public records databases to tease out the information by overlaying the data on maps. Since no one had done it before, there was no roadmap. It’s based more on counting up public records than sampling techniques or [other statistical techniques]. Most every story I’ve done involved figuring out how to count something. We were working with administrative records that encompassed everything. The work I do in news is finding instances of when systems have gone wrong using electronic records but not statistic analysis. They both rely on pressing buttons on the computer, but that’s the only thing they have in common. Several newspapers have used regression analysis to find cases where improvements in school test scores were so much better than predicted. When they look at outliers, they often find cheating on

tests. Sometimes they use statistical methods to tease that stuff out. Other people do that better than I do—I’m not that good at it.

TC: Why did it take a year? SC: A lot of it was negotiating for the records. It wasn’t the only thing I did for the year. We were fighting for the records in any form and figuring out the identities of the kids. Once we thought we knew a kid’s identity, then we could find the relatives, but each one took a lot of time to go out and verify. The government officials weren’t so happy. Sometimes the relatives were grateful someone was paying attention. Sometimes they may have been at fault. We never named a parent if they had not been charged with a crime. We were not in a position to say what they did was wrong. That was an editorial decision. It was a four day series that started Sept. 9, 2001. One of the best things about the Pulitzer [awarded in 2002] is it gave the story a second life. Changes started happening and people paid attention again.

TC: How did you get started on your Pulitzer-winning story? SC: That story came out of a beat reporter’s work on one horrific case—Briana Blackmund, who had been killed by a caretaker. At one point her sources started asking her a chilling question. “What about all

TC: When you get documents from government officials, are they digitized? SC: You would think, but not so much. In fact I’m doing some work for various new organizations this summer and I’ve spent the last few days trying to extract data from these 500 PDF reports because the

agency refuses to give us the underlying data. When they want to be transparent, it makes it much easier. TC: Are you optimistic about the fate of newspaper journalism? SC: Apparently one of the editors of the New York Times said they’ve started to see some revenue form the paywall, that it’s starting to work for them. But it wouldn’t work for very many people. At the Washington Post, they’ve lost 600 journalists in the last five years or so—a third to half of the newsroom is gone. It’s a much smaller animal than it used to be. On the other hand, some of the people they’ve been hiring over the last year are some of the best in the business. High profile people. What jobs do we need, what don’t we need? It may be that the mix is off. You need fewer layout if you’re not putting out as many print editions. You may not need the same mix of beat reporters and feature writers. TC: What did you learn while teaching here at Duke? SC: The teaching part is really fun. I’m not that worried about the students picking up specific skills or even very specific knowledge—it’s more helping people think about how to attack problems and think through something that’s unstructured. When people think about critical thinking, I guess that’s what they’re talking about. A lot of my teaching at Duke was project based, picking a problem and going at it. It was really hard for people, but in a newsroom that’s what you’re doing every day. SEE COHEN ON PAGE 8

Akin’s rape comments find sympathy in district by Stephanie McCrummen THE WASHINGTON POST

FENTON, Mo. — A thousand miles from the Republican National Convention in Tampa and the approaching winds of Tropical Storm Isaac, Sharon Barnes and Janice DeWeese were busy in the heart of conservative America, battling their own gusts of wind, setting up a white tent and arranging tables to keep the “Defending What’s Sacred!” pamphlets from blowing away. “Whoa!” Barnes said as a strong gust rotated the ornament on top of the flagpole they’d just lashed to the tent. “Our eagle’s backwards!” She fixed it and then stabbed a dozen campaign signs into the dirt, including some for Rep. Todd Akin, the U.S. Senate candidate whose recent comments about rape caused such controversy—and who happened to be the local congressman. By 11 a.m. Saturday, Barnes and DeWeese had claimed a corner of a grassy field for the Federated Republican Women of Missouri, 2nd District. Fenton Days, a fair in suburban St. Louis, was underway, and so was their mission to stand for the cause of conservative values. “Hello, there!” Barnes said to a woman looking at the $3 tins with President Barack Obama’s face on them. “Did you see the Disappoint-Mints?” In many ways, the two women, and others

who would drop by as the day went on, are the audience that liberal America understands the least and that Ann Romney, wife of Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, will be addressing in her speech at the convention in Tampa on Tuesday night: conservative women whose energy and turnout are crucial to her husband’s campaign. They are women who think that they have in some ways become less liberated in recent decades, not more; who think that easy abortion, easy birth control and a tawdry popular culture have degraded their stature, not elevated it. Though the women here were of varying faiths and economic backgrounds, they were white and bound by a shared unease with Obama in particular and liberals in general, who seemed so often to hold them in contempt. “So you’re not upset about the ‘war on women?’” joked a man in a golf shirt who stopped by for a Romney bumper sticker, referring to the slogan Democrats have used to cast Republicans as hostile to women. “Do we look battle-scarred?” DeWeese quipped. “We’re doing perfectly fine,” said Barnes, who was cheery — considering that she’d recently been called a “monster” and a “blasphemous disgrace,” and had her soul condemned to hell for defending Akin after he said in an interview that in instances of

“legitimate rape,” pregnancy is rare because women’s bodies somehow shut it down. His remarks were quickly discredited by many doctors and provoked condemnation from across the nation, including from Romney. But they found sympathy here in Akin’s solidly conservative 2nd Congressional District. Barnes, a local Republican committeewoman, told a reporter that if a woman is raped and becomes pregnant, then God has “blessed this person with a life” that should not be taken. “I didn’t mean a loving gift,” Barnes later clarified. “The whole concept of rape is so violent, so horrific. I was just trying to say — it’s just hard to express that the child should not be punished.” She did not understand the wrath directed at her, only that she would bear it. “You wonder where all that anger is coming from,” she said. “They don’t even know me.” She sat in a folding chair by the tent, the daughter of union Democrats from central Illinois, brushing away the American flag that kept flapping in her face. “No anger issues here,” she said to the man still looking for the Romney bumper sticker. A band was starting to play Willie Nelson songs, barbecue smoke was in the air and kids were in the moon bounce, and Barnes, who is 60, was in good spirits. “The more they attack, the more I dig my heels in,” she said, defending views that she traces back to a civics teacher who had students vote in the 1964 presidential election between Republican Barry Goldwater and the Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson. Barnes, 12, picked Goldwater.

“He was the underdog,” she said. “Then later, when I really got into it, I thought: ‘Yeah, I’m for liberty. Yeah, I’m for fiscal responsibility. Yeah, I believe everyone should be responsible for their own actions,’ “ she said, describing values she considers conservative. “It sort of stuck.” Barnes had always understood life through the prism of her own experience, and little had happened over the years to change her politics. She went to college at Illinois Wesleyan University in the 1970s, and heard about women burning bras and demonstrating for equal rights, which never really made sense to her, she said. “I don’t know, I personally never felt that I needed liberating,” Barnes said. “I guess that is thanks to my parents. They always said: ‘Do whatever you want to do. Work hard and you will get where you want to be.’ “ She took that to heart, never questioning whether she got more or less than she deserved. After college, she moved into an efficiency apartment and worked two jobs, as a secretary and at Burger King. She was so poor that she applied for food stamps but got rejected for making too much money, she said. She survived on peanut butter and crackers, and came to expect that others facing tough times could, too, if they were as determined. She eventually saved enough money to move to St. Louis, where she held several more secretarial jobs until she finally “married the boss,” as she put it. She and her husband never had children, which she called a “conscious choice” of the sort she figures all women have. Instead, they traveled the world for his work, she started SEE AKIN ON PAGE 8

U.S. troops tried to burn hundreds of Qurans by Craig Whitlock THE WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON — U.S. troops tried to burn about 500 copies of the Quran as part of a badly bungled security sweep at an Afghan prison in February, despite repeated warnings from Afghan soldiers that they were making a colossal mistake, according to a U.S. military investigative report released Monday. The number of copies of the Muslim holy book that were taken to the incinerator at Bagram Air Base was far greater than U.S. military officials earlier acknowledged in their accounts of an act of desecration that triggered riots across Afghanistan. The incident is also thought to have played at least a partial role in an ensuing increase in attacks against NATO troops by Afghan soldiers and police. Despite demands from Afghan officials that the American troops be placed on trial over the Quran burnings, U.S. military officials decided against filing criminal charges. Instead, the Army announced that it had taken less-serious disciplinary action against six soldiers for what they described as unintentional—if costly—mistakes. The investigation, however, cited evidence of a jarring lack of religious awareness and cultural training among the U.S. troops. The report said that before their deployment to Afghanistan, the troops were exposed only to about an hour-long PowerPoint presentation about Islam. Although they were generally aware that the Quran was a holy text, the report said, they were ignorant of the extreme cultural offense their mishandling of it could cause. The Army did not release the names of the six soldiers because they received only unspecified administrative punishments and did not face criminal charges. A Navy sailor also was investigated, but officials said disciplinary measures were dropped in that case. Meanwhie, in another case of offensive behavior in the war zone, the Marine Corps said Monday that it disciplined—but stopped short of filing criminal charges against—three noncommissioned officers for their involvement in an incident last year in which Marines videotaped themselves urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters. The video became international news after it was posted anonymously to a website in January, becoming the latest strain on relations between Afghan civilians and the NATOled military coalition that has occupied the country for the past decade. The short clip depicts four Marines in combat gear laughing as they relieved themselves over three prostrate bodies. After a lengthy investigation, the Marine Corps said it determined that the video was recorded in July 2011 by members of the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment while they were deployed to the village of Sandala in Helmand province. Three Marines pleaded guilty Monday to violations of

military regulations but were spared more serious charges that could have resulted in a court-martial. Because the cases did not go to trial, the Marines Corps declined to identify the three or to disclose the nature of their punishments. Disciplinary measures are pending against other Marines involved in the case, said Col. Sean Gibson, a spokesman for the Quantico, Va.,-based Marine Corps Combat Development Command. He declined to say how many other Marines might be implicated. The Army’s investigation of the burning of the Qurans documented a series of blunders by U.S. troops and military police officers who—unable to speak local languages—mistakenly assumed that they were disposing of radical literature found in the library of the Parwan detention center, located at the edge of Bagram air base. Acting on suspicions that prisoners were passing illicit notes in the margins of library books, U.S. troops asked an

Afghan translator to take a look. The translator concluded, erroneously, that the majority of the library’s holdings were extremist in nature, according to the investigative report. Prison guards boxed up almost 2,000 of the suspicious books. Of those, 474 were Qurans and 1,100 were unobjectionable religious tracts. The remainder were secular volumes, the investigation found. When Afghan soldiers and guards at the prison learned of the plan to burn the books, they objected loudly. But U.S. troops, responding to miscommunicated orders as well as suspicions about their Afghan allies, transported the materials to a burn pit at Bagram air base. Most of the texts were rescued at the last minute by Afghan workers at the base, who quickly shut off the incinerator and doused the flames after realizing that the daily trash pile contained Muslim holy books. The military said, however, that “up to 100” Qurans and other religious texts were burned.

BCC from page 1 16, 2010—with the aid of federal grant money, vehicle registration fees and about $1 million from Duke. The service runs through downtown Durham to East Campus, West Campus and the Duke University Medical Center. Despite its initial contributions to the line, Duke is not sure if continued support is worth the cost. “The student ridership is not what we have expected for the first two years,” Phail Wynn, vice president for Durham and regional affairs, said. Duke Medical Center North is the most popular stop, but it is not clear how many of those riders are affiliated with the University, Wynn noted. The Connector was only outfitted with more accurate ridership monitoring equipment in April. The equipment calculates how many students and staff ride the BCC better than the previous systems, allowing the University to determine whether to continue past this third year. “We hope to have a lot more students riding it, particularly going into the city past Ninth Street to get more engaged in the both commercial and civic aspects of the city,”

THE CHRONICLE

Wynn said. The low ridership is partially due to a lack of student awareness of the line, noted sophomore Derek Rhodes, vice president of Durham and regional affairs for Duke Student Government. “It is fairly new, and I think that students are getting accustomed to it and figuring out what it is and what they can do with it,” Rhodes said. “Secondly, Duke students just don’t like to use public transportation.” But he added that DSG is working hard to push more students to use the system. Last year, DSG made a video called “How to Ride the Bull City Connector” to promote the service. The video shows current DSG President Alex Swain, a senior who previously held Rhodes’ position, giving a tour of the BCC route and the opportunities it offers to students in Durham, which include transport to internships, the Durham art walk and fine dining. DSG is also trying to encourage more programs to utilize the line such as the Devils After Dark program for freshmen and other student groups on West Campus. “Anytime that they are doing anything out in the com-

munity, we want to encourage them to use the Bull City Connector,” Rhodes said. Many students, especially upperclassmen, might prefer to use their own cars to get into town, Rhodes noted. But riding the BCC saves students time and gas, he added. One of the main goals of BCC was to reduce the carbon footprint of traffic through Durham and Duke because the diesel hybrid Connector buses would reduce the need for cars, especially for the 2,000 Duke employees living in downtown Durham. “By this time next year we’ll have about 2,700 [employees],” Wynn said, “My hope was we’ll make it easier for employees to go back and forth without having to drive.” But even if student use of the Connector picks up, the future of its partnership with Duke is uncertain because Main Street is slated to be closed for construction work on the bridge over Campus Drive shortly after commencement in May. As a result, the BCC and all the traffic on Main Street will be re-routed down Buchanan Boulevard and up Markham Avenue. The construction should only last a maximum of 150 days, said Mark Ahrendsen, director of the Durham Department of Transportation. But Wynn is concerned that during that time, the Connector may lose customers. “Approximately 14,000 vehicles per day—during the week—travel down that strip of Main Street, which means that they will have to detour that many cars around East Campus,” Wynn said. The Connector has been working towards maintaining a 15-minute headway—or wait time—between buses, Wynn said. “But once they start detouring all these cars, that’s going to change these headways dramatically,” he said. “And my concern is that we’ll lose a lot of loyal riders because they’ll be sitting there having no idea how long it will take for the bus to get there.” But Ahrendsen is optimistic about the partnership. “We feel that it’s been a mutually beneficial project for both the city and the University and University hospital,” Ahrendsen said. He added that the Connector currently meets and exceeds its goal of 2,000 daily riders, although there are still opportunities to increase ridership. For now, however, the BCC remains one of the main ways to get to or from downtown Durham—especially for Blue Devils who do not own cars, such as freshman Noura von Briesen, who went to downtown for an Orientation Week event. “We were at the [Durham Performing Arts Center] and we didn’t want to wait for the chartered bus to take us back to campus,” von Briesen said, so she and some friends rode the BCC back to East Campus. Von Briesen said she is not sure if she will ride the BCC again soon. “If it goes by someplace that I have to go, then sure— it’s free,” she said.

contract would expire for a while, but was not privy to the reason it is not being renewed. Duke Dining officials made the decision to not include the two restaurants last year, before the July controversy surrounding Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s comments in opposition to same-sex marriage, Johnson said. Although he noted that he has received three emails from students and Duke community members that Duke should remove the restaurant from campus due to Cathy’s stance. “I told them it’s really a moot point,� he said. “Their contract is up at the end of this year. It seemed to satisfy them.� Student reactions to the closing of these two restaurants are mixed. “I love Chick-Fil-A,� said sophomore Nadia Viscuso. “It is one of my favorite

places to eat on campus. First Pauly Dogs, then Chick-Fil-A... I’m upset.� The removal of both fast food chains may raise some socioeconomic concerns because they were two of the more inexpensive places to get a meal on campus, said sophomore James Silberstein. “As an advocate for the LGBTQ community, I am thrilled that a company like Chick-Fil-A will not be allowed to operate on campus,� said junior Jacob Tobia, co-president of Blue Devils United. “And as a vegetarian, I’m happy to see them go because I couldn’t eat anything at Chick-Fil-A anyways. I’m ultimately disappointed with the administration because, through saying that the decision had nothing to do with Chick-Fil-A’s discriminatory practices, they squandered an opportunity to take an important stand for equality.� Yeshwanth Kandimalla contributed reporting.

TC: What advice do you have for someone contemplating a career in journalism? SC: At the entry level it’s fine and at the top level it’s fine. It’s that vast middle level where the problem lies. I worry for people coming in entry level—how are they going to get to the high level if the middle is gone. By the middle, I mean long-term feature or beat reporters at mid-sized newspapers, like the Tampa Bay Tribune or the St. Petersburg Times. They were never as overstaffed as the big places so their cutbacks hurt a lot more. The one thing that is very clear is it is extremely difficult to get an entry level job. It’s totally skills-based. If you don’t have multimedia skills, it’s very hard to get an entry level job. Interactive graphics. Audio visual. The first thing they ask about is multimedia skills. By narrowly putting yourself in print or broadcast, you’ll have fewer options. Get those skills at least at a level that you’re comfortable carrying a camera around or recorder. People are looking for good reporters, less so for feature writers than hard news at least in the circles I travel in. The easiest place to get a job is business news.

Students will now have to affirm the originality of every essay assignment they submit by checking a box which reads, “In accordance with the Honor Code, I certify that my answers here are my own work, and that I have appropriately acknowledged all external sources (if any) that were used in this work.” Only the three courses on Coursera which currently include essay assignments will be affected by the changes, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education article. Representatives from Coursera could not be reached for comment. Dan Ariely, James B. Duke professor of behavior economics, said he, like Lange, had not thought about the issue of plagiarism before it came up. Ariely will be offering a course entitled “A Beginner’s Guide to Irrational Behavior,” in the Spring. Before Coursera updated the site, Lange noted that a “beefed up” honor code would probably constitute most of the preventative measures taken against plagiarism on the site. “The truth is, in a world in which we’re offering no credit and a very cautious credential... that’s as far as we’re going to go,” he said.

a small business making clothespin dolls, and these days she enjoys dancing with her husband at local Twilight Tuesdays concerts in the fall. She has also become immersed in Republican politics, a passion that began when she volunteered during the 2000 election. Barnes’s business card now lists positions in eight local Republican organizations, including the one sponsoring Fenton Days, where she sat in a lawn chair in the sun. “Did you see ‘2016?’” asked a woman under the tent, referring to a new film that claims Obama’s upbringing infused him with anti-colonial attitudes that make him uncomfortable with American preeminence, and that describes a diminished nation if he wins reelection. “I did,” said Barnes, who’d gone to a 10 a.m. showing the day before, when a packed theater of mostly elderly people sat silently through the pre-movie Patti Smith medley and mmm-hmmed through the film until its apocalyptic final scene featuring a shot of a gray-toned cemetery. “Which dream will we carry forward?”

the narrator asked. “Obama’s dream? . . . Or America’s dream? The future is in your hands.” “Scary,” Barnes said then, and repeated it now. “Scary,” said the woman under the tent. “I went to the 11:10 at Ronnie’s 20. Then I went to see ‘Sparkle.’” “Hello!” Barnes said to a woman perusing the Akin lawn signs, which were fluttering in the wind. “So how are you guys coming back on the Akin thing?” asked Betty Rottler, 67. “Well, he’s our candidate, and we’re all working to defeat McCaskill,” said Barnes, referring to Akin’s Democratic opponent in the Senate race. Rottler nodded. “I’m for Todd,” she said. “Life is right.” Rottler said that for her, being a conservative woman had to do with being a Christian and a Catholic woman, with upholding a moral order that places respect for life at the center. She said she is against abortion and against the death penalty. She is against anything that in her view degrades the value of life. “All this premarital sex everywhere, all these abortions, all this violence just becoming normal,” she said. “It doesn’t make any sense to me.”

increasingly scarce resources. Apart from issuing vague assurances about the greatness of the Chinese frontier, the administration has never sufficiently justified DKU, and we question whether a campus in China represents the best use of University funds. That being said, the city of Kunshan bore the brunt of DKU’s construction costs, and much of Duke’s approximately $40 million contribution came from funds earmarked for the project. A financial trade-off between Kunshan and Durham would be relatively small. At the very least, the focus on DKU signals a shift in the University’s priorities. Brodhead reserved the academic year’s first mass email for an update on DKU, emphasizing the ill-defined rewards of glob-

al expansion over improving quality at home. Despite concerns about priorities, we laud the University’s commitment to free inquiry at DKU and appreciate Brodhead’s discussion of it in his email. Although students and professors will likely not face threats to academic freedom, it remains unclear whether “free inquiry and free expression” protects political activism or organized protest on campus. Yale University recently faced censure because its campus in Singapore prohibits protests and partisan student groups. Duke’s policy on academic freedom does not discuss political participation, but we suspect China’s tightly-controlled political environment will make political expression difficult, an issue

Duke’s administration ought to publicly consider. Concerns about DKU rarely stem from the belief that the administration has done a poor job implementing the project. More often, they are a reaction to poor communication. For example, DKU’s current web presence, which is merely one paltry section in a “Duke in China” site, could certainly be beefed up. If Brodhead traded platitudes for details and the administration made relevant documents more accessible, students and staff would be better able to engage in a meaningful conversation about Kunshan. DKU will happen whether we like it or not, but its success will require greater openness on the part of Brodhead and his administration.

On margins

A

irport security checkpoints with their droning officials, intrusive scanners and myriad restrictions are cumbersome. Yet on rare occasions, a checkpoint becomes not just a gateway to flying aluminium tubes but also a portal to considerable insight. Once a woman and her cupcake trespassed into the taboo territory of gels, liquids and aerosols. A simple red velvet cupcake highlighted the problematic enterprise of pigeonholing objects into categories. The cupcake had been in a jar, and turbulent travel had brutalized it. A less-mushy sibling of this abused cupcake might have evaded scrutiny. Alternatively, a mushier cupcake would have been fine had a human tummy, not a glass jar, been the container. Therein lies the conundrum of margins: the fuzzy distinctions that mark and mar our lives. The drinking age is one jing song ng margin close to the hearts of jingapore says Duke students. It demands that one wait 21 revolutions around the sun. This stricture seems pedantic. One who is 20 years and 364 days old is not struck by wisdom a day later. But the margins that split hairs (age, weight, academic credits) are not utterly meaningless. There is the pragmatic lament that lines have to be drawn somewhere for people to conveniently signal certain attributes. There is also a case to be made that margins can enrich our lives. The drinking age allows college students to celebrate their 21st birthdays with joyous aplomb. At the stroke of midnight, drunken revelry breaks loose. In fact, the very date of one’s birthday owes itself to custom: The most significant moment of one’s being happens when she leaves the womb for the incubator, not at any other embryonic speck of time. Other boundaries have defined our lives in more monumental ways. Physical borders between countries contain pockets that are oblivious to the trumpeting of national identities. In these sites, communities mingle, languages are coterminous and a common life emerges. Boundaries are artifices. Despite their synthetic nature, national borders still incite spurts of euphoria and a transcendent spirit of belonging. The Olympics is a case in point. Closer to home, different hues of blue goad us to curse an opposing team to eternal damnation. Besides injecting meaning into our otherwise humdrum existence, margins strive for precision amidst our cosmos of preferences. Economics cleaves to marginal analyses. For instance, how many pennies is a buyer willing to forgo to obtain an additional product? Curves of such tenor neatly intersect and a satisfying equilibrium emerges. Yet, such precision defies the honest nuisance of transient preferences. I almost successfully doubled my pocket money in primary school by patiently bargaining with my father centby-cent. Eventually, my dad snapped and rescinded on all the concessions I thought I had gleefully managed to clinch. Margins are continually massaged, prodded and pierced. With prosthetic limbs, Oscar Pistorius, a South African 400-meter sprinter, successfully traversed the chasm between the Paralympics and the Olympics in London. Inevitably, a debate over the bounds of unfair artificial assistance ensued. We still marvel, however, at the grit emanating from the story of a double-amputee. This virtue slices across the silos that distinguish able-bodied athletes from their handicapped counterparts, the fine line dividing acceptable sporting equipment from unfair assistance. Things that teeter on the margin often prick our senses more than whatever lies on either side of the fence. Graduation ceremonies are seminal. It is less the certitude of receiving the certificate than the twilight between being an undergraduate student and being a person who has taken the first step out of the gilded gates of one of society’s most revered institutions. Such moments are pregnant with apprehensive aspirations: a hopeful future inscribed on the diploma that pines for the bygone carefreeness of studenthood. These marginal moments that flicker as we journey from one state to the next are richly emotional. Humans carve out their stream of experiences into discrete states. Yet, nature hints to us that beauty resides in the crevices of categories. Rusty reddish leaves flutter between summer and autumn. The streaks of sunbeams crack through as night gives way to day, only to creep back when day cedes to nightfall. Margins mesmerize us. Jing Song Ng is a Trinity senior.

MEN’S SOCCER

LEADING FROM THE BACK by Alex Krinsky THE CHRONICLE

Goalkeeper James Belshaw is not allowed to get a case of senioritis. The Blue Devil finds himself in a unique situation this season—he is the lone senior on the Duke roster. Although preseason All-American defender Sebastien Ibeagha and a talented sophomore class complement Belshaw in the back, his ability to lead and sustain his performance in front of the net will be pivotal to the 2012 squad’s success. “I think I’m ready to take on the extra responsibility and lead the team,” Belshaw said. “I’ve been back there for three years now, and with [Ibeagha] in front of me, I feel like we can beat teams back and set an example for the younger guys.” Soccer America recently named the senior a preseason All-American after starting all 21 games for Duke and earning an All-ACC first team selection in 2011. The Blue Devils enter the 2012 season ranked No. 21 in the Soccer America preseason poll and No. 6 in an ACC poll of the conference’s coaches. In the ultra-competitive ACC, head coach John Kerr emphasized how keeping morale high will be critical for the young team. He will be counting on Belshaw to set the example. “I like to be there for the guys on and off the field,” Belshaw said. “I feel like I’m a guy that the younger guys can come to when they need anything….

Five sophomores and two freshmen

from former Duke forward Ryan Finley. Within the ACC, Duke will have the opportunity to match up against teams that are also lacking seniority. Clemson and N.C. State only enlist one senior on their rosters, while Virginia and No. 3 Maryland include two and three seniors, respectively. Division powers No. 11 Boston College, No. 19 Wake Forest and No. 6 North Carolina will be the more seasoned squads with seven, seven and five seniors, respectively. “We forget how young these guys are,” head coach John Kerr said. “When you look around at the number of games they play, you have to kind of hammer into them what’s expected.… So in the preseason I’ve been really going over a lot of basic things to make sure that they’re reminded that these [upperclassmen] have gone through it before, but it needs to be known.” A rigorous preseason schedule against Big Ten teams Ohio State and Michigan State provided the opportunity for Duke’s five freshmen to become acquainted with the speed and intricacy of the college game. Belshaw recorded a shutout in the opener against the Buckeyes. “We’re making some serious progress each day. Each session is better and I like the signs that we’re showing,” Kerr said. “The older guys on the team have been fantastic, as well. If they decide that they’re going to help those younger guys along, I think we can really make some big strides.”

Duke seeks second strong season under Bustin by Lopa Rahman THE CHRONICLE

Last year, the Blue Devils’ national championship hopes vanished when Old Dominion handed them a crushing loss in the quarterfinal round of the NCAA tournament. Although Duke was seeded No. 6 and the Lady Monarchs were No. 2, it was a difficult defeat because the Blue Devils had beaten them earlier in the season. This season, the Duke squad returns hungrier than ever to earn its first national title. “We want to build on our successes,” Blue Devil head coach Pam Bustin said. “Each time we step on the field we want to be better than we were the day before. If we can just stay focused on that the results will come, and our goals will be met.” Last season, Duke reached the ACC championship game for the first time since 2003 and won an NCAA tournament game

for the first time since 2008. And that was in Bustin’s first year at the helm after taking the reins from previous coach Beth Bozman. The Blue Devils possess key ingredients to build on last year’s successes, namely a deep roster and determination. “When we’re all together we have good depth,” Bustin said. “Toward the end of the season that’s going to be a huge benefit for us—that we have the numbers and the experience to continue to make some inner changes and keep everybody fresh. These kids have many specific skills that can go from the top of the team to the bottom of the team. We have determined kids.” Despite the graduation of six seniors last year, the Blue Devils now have a talented crop of five freshmen.

VOLLEYBALL

Athletes hope Olympic Big shoes to fill, tall buzz carries into season freshmen to fill them by Danny Nolan THE CHRONICLE

SIMPLY THE BEST!

The hierarchy of American athletics is simple—football, basketball and baseball are the sports to watch for most. But that all changes for a few weeks every four years, when the rest of the sports world is given the spotlight. Questions about who will be the starting quarterback for a particular NFL team are dwarfed by the conversation about who will win the upcoming 100-meter dash. The news of NBA free agency signings are put on the backburner until the results of the most recent swimming races have been announced. The coverage of MLB, which is currently in season, paled in comparison to the news that two American teams faced off in the women’s beach volleyball gold medal game. Moments like these from the 2012 Olympic Games in London had Duke athletes taking notes and getting excited for their respective upcoming seasons. “With the Olympics, we’d all be talking about [it],” women’s cross country runner Juliet Bottorff said. “We’d ask each other, ‘Wow, did you see that race? Did you see how she looked? That girl looked amazing!’ It just helped to build momentum.” Seeing former Duke track and field star Shannon Rowbury compete for the United States only added to the anticipation for this year’s Olympic games. “I told everyone that I knew, ‘Yeah, that girl went to my school,” women’s cross country runner Madeline Morgan said. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt may have been one of the bigger storylines in London, but the success of American stars on an inter-

national stage drew a national audience. The U.S. volleyball teams, both on the hard court and in the sand, were among the most dominant in the Olympic Games. The women’s teams took silver on the hard court and both gold and silver in the beach volleyball competition. “It’s cool to get a lot of hype around the sport,” volleyball middle back Christiana Gray said. “Most people know about volleyball, but they might not know the rules, see how fast it is, and for them to be able to watch the Olympics and see that, it gets them excited to see our games. I’m hoping that transition will be there for us.” With the competition over and the Olympic medals awarded, the question on everyone’s minds is whether or not these sports be able to maintain such overwhelming interest in the months to come. “I’m hoping there was so much visibility of [volleyball] on television, for the Olympics, for volleyball, that people really begin to enjoy watching the sport,” volleyball head coach Jolene Nagel said. “Hopefully we can build on this excitement for volleyball that has just been built in our country.”

“I love it,” Duke head coach Jolene Nagel said when asked how she felt about her team’s No. 4 ranking in the ACC preseason coaches’ poll. It might seem odd for Nagel to “love” such a ranking when the Blue Devils are accustomed to being at the top of the conference, but this year, she said she is excited at the prospect of being more under the radar than in the recent past. “It’s a little bit different than what we’ve had to deal with the last few years,” she said, “but I certainly think the conference is very competitive and the three teams that were picked ahead of us are going to be very strong teams this year.” Duke began the 2010 season chosen alongside Florida State as favorites to win the regular season title. Returning

six of seven starters from the year before, the Blue Devils did in fact win the 2010 ACC championship. The following year Duke returned five starters and nine letterwinners and once again sat atop the preseason conference poll. The 2012 season brings a new challenge for Nagel and her team. But now the Blue Devils find themselves in a unique position, with a squad featuring only five upperclassmen. “We have a lot of developing to still do,” Nagel said. “We had a significant loss to graduation—players who had played their entire careers here.” Three members of last year’s graduating class—setter Kellie Catanach, hitter Sophia Dunworth and blocker Amanda Robertson—all held starting positions since they entered the program as freshmen. Catanach finished her career ranked ninth in ACC history with 5,363 assists, and Dunworth capped off her four years ranked seventh in Duke history in kills. Despite these serious losses from last year’s squad, the Blue Devil coaching staff has plenty of reasons to be excited. Duke brings in five freshmen this Fall, including a trio of top-100 recruits who could form the core of the next Blue Devil championship team. Duke’s class of 2016 ranks No. 10 in the nation among recruiting classes. SEE VOLLEYBALL ON PAGE 8

EYES ON T by Tim Visutipol THE CHRONICLE

After taking Duke to its second-ever national championship game, the entire starting lineup from last season is returning to Durham for another run. And with seven players who will be playing their fourth year at Duke—five seniors and two redshirt juniors— the team’s experience is its core. The five seniors form the defensive backbone of the No. 1 Blue Devils. Duke features Tara Campbell in goal, Erin Koballa, Libby Jandl and Maddy Haller in the defense and holding midfielder Nicole Lipp protecting the penalty box. This group of players did not learn the easy way, though, as they were forced to learn on the fly due to a plethora of injuries their freshman year. Each played significant minutes in the first game of 2009 against Gardner-Webb. “I think all three of us—Maddy, Erin and I—were not expecting to get in there freshman year, but they kind of threw us in,” Jandl said. “There were some tough times and I think those tough times help shape who we are today.” That year, the Blue Devils were one of the last teams selected for the NCAA tournament and lost to Rutgers in the first round 2-0. “All of the seniors had to be thrown in starting roles before they were ready to play,” head coach Robbie Church said. “Three years later going into senior year to see that group ranked No. 1 in the country—it speaks volumes for the work this group has done.” According to the latest national rankings, the Blue Devils are No. 1 in the Soccer America Poll and No. 2 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. Chasing its first national title, Duke was close to its goal last season, losing a 1-0 match to Stanford 1-0 in the College Cup championship game in Kennesaw, Ga. That leaves just one way to improve on last season—win the entire thing. “I think we’ve had a fantastic preseason,” Church said. “If you evaluate it, it’s probably the best one we’ve had in [my] 12 years as head coach. You could see once the players got their training uniforms, and once we got back onto the field…. You could see how hungry this team is to continue and build on their success they had last year and take it one step further.” Starting the season, Duke defeated William and Mary 4-1, before dominating Elon 8-0. “The girls have worked extremely hard during

their training sessions,” Church said. “What every coach wants is to go from the training sessions right into the game.” The beginning of the season will require the members of the team to step up and fill the void left by sophomore Kelly Cobb and junior Mollie Pathman, who are competing for the United States at the U-20 World Cup in Japan. The Americans have advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament. Their absence was felt in Duke’s first loss of the season, when they were upset by No. 20 Florida Sunday. Without them, players have stepped up to play in unfamiliar positions, mainly on offense. Redshirt junior Kim DeCesare, for one, has had to push up from midfield and is now a striker. “It hasn’t been too difficult,” DeCesare said. “It hasn’t been that much of a transition as towards the end of last season I played as an attacking center-mid, and even in the final game last season I popped in as forward. So I think I’ve been getting pretty used to it.” DeCesare has played many positions throughout her two years. Church even joked that next year she might play as a goalkeeper. Her ability to handle these transitions in stride is one that Church believes “symbolizes” the leadership qualities of a Blue Devil. With the offense changing, the teams need the senior-led defense to provide a strong foundation. Last season, the team broke the school shutout record, something this team is not as focused on. “We have loads of confidence. We have a great shaping,” Jandl said. “In the past we focused on shutouts…. I think this year, after we now have our shaping down, we will look to add to the attack as well.” The ability to build on the attack is based on experience, Lipp said, and Church expects that from his crew of veterans. “Now as a senior, having played three years, having the experience is so different,” she said. “You just know each other’s tendencies. We communicate well, and we have a bond that’s irreplaceable.” The Blue Devils will need this group to perform against the intense competition in the conference. Of the top 20 spots in the NSCAA poll, ACC teams occupy eight of these positions. DeCesare said this means “every game could be the championship game.” Church even said his grey hairs are a result of playing in this conference. In the end, the team has one ultimate vision and that is to play in the final game once again, but this time hoping for a different result. “We enjoyed playing on the last day of the year last year, and that’s our goal,” Church said.

Blue Devils ready to hit the trail for 2012 The men’s team looks to rebound from last season’s injuries Female runners look to by Sarah Elsakr make NCAAs this season THE CHRONICLE

After a disappointing and injury-filled 2011 season, the Blue Devils, ranked seventh in the Southeast Region, are not dwelling on the past. With a strong freshman class and healthy returners, confidence is in the air as Duke takes to the trail in search of its third appearance at the NCAA National meet in the past four seasons. A key contributor to the struggles the Blue Devil men faced in their previous season was the absence of two key runners, James Kostelnik and Mike Moverman, both of whom had been expected to take top-five spots on the team. Now, with Kostelnik returning as a fifth-year senior and Moverman a redshirt junior, the team has gained depth and as well as added leadership for their incoming freshman class. Depth has never been a concern for the Duke men, head coach Norm Ogilvie said, but the issue for the Blue Devils in previous years has rested with their inability to produce a strong frontrunner who could secure a top position in high level meets and get a low point score. Ogilvie believes this year may be different. “We had extremely good results at pre-season training camp,” Ogilvie said. “Domenick DeMatteo, coming off his 13:50 [1500m] on the track last season, is the fastest guy coming into the season that I’ve had as far as 5K time goes. He has had a great summer of training and is in phenomenal shape…. I also think Brian Atkinson’s 10K success and the training he’s had this summer could potentially make him a low stick as well.” The Blue Devil coach cited the team’s potential in the third, fourth and fifth spots, two of which Kostelnik and Moverman will likely fill. With a strong crop of returning runners, the Blue Devils will have no shortage of leadership. Upperclassmen such as DeMatteo are not only looking to set their own goals, but also to also help the incoming freshman class and less experienced runners step up to ensure the team consistently performs at it’s best. “The freshman class that came in is a big one, which is very good, and it’s a very mature class. Right now we’re just making sure that they don’t get overwhelmed by the training…so they don’t burn out in the middle of the season,” DeMatteo said. “They’re a really promising group and I’m looking forward to seeing them develop.” The majority of the new class’ development will occur later in the season as both the length of the meet and strength of competition increases toward the regional and potentially the national meet. But the freshmen will get a taste of what that will be like earlier than they would have in previous sea-

Cross country head coach Norm Ogilvie said he expects big things out of Domenick DeMatteo for this upcoming season. sons, as scheduling changes will introduce the top runners to competitive meets, such the NCAA Pre-National meet in Louisville, Ky. In past years meets of this caliber were not a part of the team’s itinerary. Until then, Duke’s new runners are eager for the chance to test themselves against their teammates at their first meet, Friday’s Virginia Tech Invitational in Blacksburg, Va. The nerves that may accompany more competitive meets have yet to make an appearance. “Coming from high school I didn’t really have too many guys to train with,” freshman Blake Udland said. “It’s natural to be a little nervous before my first college race but the older guys have [said] ‘It’s just a race... it’s just at a little different level’. So I’m not too nervous about racing.”

The Blue Devil women are gearing up to take a more aggressive stance as the gun goes off on the 2012 season. The 2011 women’s team found themselves in the disappointing position of not being able to qualify for the NCAA National meet as some of their top runners, such as NCAA Outdoor 10K Champion Juliet Bottorff, were sidelined by injuries and the rest of the team proved unable to make up the difference. Only senior Madeline Morgan was able to qualify for the meet as an individual. This year’s Blue Devils are doing everything they can to prevent this team from ending up on the trainer’s bed. Bottorff, a returning team captain this year, as well as the rest of her teammates, is taking greater care in her training to prevent injury. According to head women’s coach Kevin Jermyn, the coaches are also doing their part to ensure that if unexpected injuries do occur, the rest of the team is ready to rise to the challenge. “[This group] is not taking things for granted,” Jermyn said. “I think everybody learns from the past. And the past showed us that we had some of our top runners not run the season and other people feel underprepared or not expecting to be in that role or overwhelmed by it…. Their responsibility is to prepare to be at the line at the national championship, to be at the line at the ACC Championship and to be the best that they can be as opposed to hoping that things will go perfectly.” Despite the added pressure on the women to top their showing in the previous season, the team dynamic is one of excitement, rather than nervousness. Both the upperclassmen and the freshmen are entering the season with an eagerness that they admitted might have been inspired by watching Olympic runners compete in London, including Duke alumna Shannon Rowbury. “Last year was a disappointment for sure,” Bottorff said. “It was killing me to not be out there with them…and I know they weren’t very happy with how the season went either. We have much higher goals. We know that we’re better than that.” Although the drive of the upperclassmen stems from their desire to recover from last year’s performance, the freshmen have found their motivation elsewhere. The leadership of the upperclassmen has been influential in easing their transition to the increased intensity of collegiate training and ensuring that the new Blue Devils are ready to compete, and, if need be, step in to fill vacancies in Duke’s lineup. “I absolutely love the team here. It’s a great family atmosphere…and our coaches are amazing. We’re learning how to train a lot smarter,” freshman Holly Bischof said. “Definitely [races] will be a bit more of a challenge in college because everyone you race against is fast. I wouldn’t actually say that I’m nervous about it, I’d say I’m excited for it because when everyone else around you is running faster it pushes you to run faster as well.” With experienced returners like Bottorff, Morgan and Suejin Ahn leading the way, the new recruits should have plenty of motivation to pick up their own pace and, as Jermyn put it, “work together to put Duke back at the forefront of the national running scene.”

VOLLEYBALL from page 3 “We were able to recruit some great size, and that is going to help us at the net,� Nagel said. “They are also just great athletes with exceptional skills.� A rigorous offseason program that began in June has helped the team’s new members acclimate to the lifestyle of Division I athletics. But these freshmen are ready to do more than just learn the ropes—they are ready to compete. After last weekend’s Duke Volleyball Invitational, in which the Blue Devils won all three of their matches without dropping a single set, the freshmen class has already established its presence. Outside hitter Emily Sklar, ranked the 28th best high school player in the nation, led the team with 33 kills. Six-foot-four setter Christina Vucich has already registered 49 assists, another team high. Middle blocker Elizabeth Campbell also contributed 20 kills and tallied 9 blocks during the

season’s opening weekend. Sklar started all three of Duke’s matches, and both Vucich and Campbell appeared in all nine of Duke’s sets during the invitational. The tall, talented trio— who all stand over six feet—seems prepared to help usher in a new era of Blue Devil dominance. The freshmen are not the only exciting underclassmen on Duke’s squad, though. Sophomore outside hitter Jeme Obeime registered 28 kills in the weekend’s three matches, and sophomore setter Kelsey Williams stands at Vucich’s heels with 44 assists of her own. “We’ve got some great leadership,� Nagel said. “[Our upperclassmen] are doing an excellent job of guiding those younger players and helping them along.... It’s a really exciting time for our team. It’s a great test for us.� The team’s early success indicates that the young players have what it takes to pass that test. The promising start to the year may signal a successful transition from the heavy losses of graduation a year ago to the bright future of Duke volleyball.

Sophomore Brittney Balser is part of a large underclassmen crew that volleyball head coach Jolene Nagel will rely upon this season.

FIELD HOCKEY from page 2 Hannah Barreca and Aileen Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were named AllAmericans in high school. Fellow classmate Kendra Perrin was honored as the 2011 U-18 British Columbia Female Field Hockey Player of the Year. Duke returns four out of its five leading scorers from last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;junior Emmie Le Marchand, junior Devon Gagliardi, sophomore Jessica Buttinger and senior Mary Nielson. Le Marchand, who registered a team-high 45 points last season, was selected to the 2012 Preseason AllACC Team in a vote of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coaches. Equally important is the extensive experience gained by veteran players, some of whom competed at the national level over the summer. Among these players are Buttinger, who represented Canada, and sophomore Lauren Blazing, who played for the United States U-21 squad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The experiences that our kids are having with their national programs obviously brings their game to another level,â&#x20AC;? Bustin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We support that and look forward to that experience coming back to our team to enhance us and make us a stronger team.â&#x20AC;? Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule ranks among the most difficult in the country, with 10 regular-season matchups against top-20 competition. The depth and talent of the Blue Devil team, however, eases Bustinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns about a tough schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My biggest concern is when we could possibly be down six kids for the Junior Pan-American games taking place in September,â&#x20AC;? Bustin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not so concerned about the results or anything. I just want to make sure that our team remains mentally positive and mentally strong to get through that period when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not at full-force.â&#x20AC;? But as a team that prides itself on depth, the Blue Devils will hope to be a force to be reckoned with down the road.
