Locopops’ N.C. colleges to allow concealed firearms business melts away by Grace Wang The Chronicle
by Abhi Shah The Chronicle
Food cart sales have nearly frozen over as a result of location changes in anticipation of West Union renovations. Locopops can no longer afford to man its stand outside of the Penn Pavilion, due to decreased revenue as a result of the move. Previously, the frozen treats stand was located outside the West Union building, near the entrance to the Bryan Center plaza from the residential quad. “Our business dropped 70 percent of sales on a weekly basis,” Locopops owner Summer Bicknell said. The pops will still be available for purchase as Gus Megaloudis, The Greek Devil food cart owner, is currently manning the Locopops’ stand upon customer’s request. “I made a deal with them so that they do not close down,” Megaloudis said. “I take over their stand but sell their pops through their account. I am already here so they do not have to pay an employee every day. She pays me by the pop, so she makes money and See locopops, page 6

Hpuse Bill 957will permit students at public universities to stow handguns in locked vehicles.
As of today, licensed gun owners who are in public college in North Carolina are allowed to conceal their handguns in locked vehicles. The legislation — passed as a provision of House Bill 937 in July by Governor Pat McCrory — applies explicitly to public universities and colleges in North Carolina. Duke University officials responded by issuing a statement several days ago prohibiting guns on campus whatsoever, an avenue granted by the new bill for private institutions. “Duke has had a very long history of not permitting weapons on campus,” said Vice President of Administration Kyle Cavanaugh. “For us, the campus remains in exactly the same form in terms of gun-carrying policies. There’s no change in the way we’ve been handling this for the many past decades.” Although private institutions are not mandated to comply with the law, they have to make their policies explicitly clear. Cavanaugh explained that Duke will put up signs in critical locations reminding students that firearms are banned on campus. “The signs are simply going to say that weapons are prohibited from Duke properties,” Cavanaugh said.

DUSDAC recognizes concerns, debates dining reforms by Bernice Kwan The Chronicle
The Duke University Student Dining Advisory Committee met Monday night to address student dining concerns prompted by recent changes on campus. DUSDAC, a student group that works to bridge the gap between Dining Services and students, laid out goals for the year to improve the student dining experience. The group discussed issues with the freshman meal plan as well as food truck availability and proposed increased communication with the student body, among other topics.
“I feel like there are so many things about Duke Dining that are shrouded in mystery, which we want to bring to light,” said senior Chris Taylor, the co-chair of DUSDAC. “Obviously, the system between the administration and the students will break down at times, so we step in and facilitate communication between the two groups.” Taylor brought up the dining challenges raised by the loss of the West Union Building during its renovation, and the group discussed increasing the availability and diversity of food trucks as a possible solution. He added that DUSDAC will explore food truck offerings for
lunch time. The committee brought other suggestions to the table aimed at raising student awareness of dining options and increasing their participation in the dining experience. Potential plans include launching a Twitter account for the Red Mango so it can release the daily flavors, the introduction of halal food as advocated by the Duke Muslim Student Association, an expansion of vegetarian and glutenfree options in the Marketplace and a future Orientation Week information session for incoming freshmen on how to navigate Duke dining.
New member Nicole Kozlak, a freshman, voiced concern about the freshman meal plan. “I know a lot of freshmen I’ve been talking to are frustrated with how much money is going to waste with the current dining plan, since a lot of people are missing out on swipes or equivalency money,” Kozlak said. Robert Coffey, director of dining services, said dining options have been expanded— breakfast is now being served at the Food Factory at Devil’s Bistro on Central Campus. See Dusdac, page 6
Durham Public Schools reviews curriculum changes by Elizabeth Djinis The ChroniCle
Durham Public Schools held a meeting Monday evening to discuss changes made last year to north Carolina’s public school curriculum. Community members watched an hourlong presentation on the intended effects of the changes at the Southern School of energy and Sustainability. Among the most controversial modifications are an increase in the score required to pass state exams and the elimination of SAT preparation—to be replaced by preparation for the ACT. The discussion was led by James Key, DPS superintendent for high school curriculum, instruction and school improvement. “The teachers haven’t changed, the students haven’t changed, we [just] expect them to know more and do more,” Key said. in addition to the standardized testing and score changes, students must now take common state exams at the end of each year for every course subject taught in the classroom. Although exams administered in class throughout the year will be instructor-written, the final common exam will be written by the state and streamlined for all n.C. public school students taking the same course, Key said. The program changes are intended to emphasize critical thinking and enhance students’ skills for their future academic careers, Key noted. Although students may be able to name Abraham lincoln as the 16th president, they also need to be able to defend who their favorite president is and why that is the case, Key added. Some parents were less enthusiastic about the changes. Jeff Mclaurin, a Durham father with a child in middle school, said the additional standardized testing could put certain children at a disadvantage. he noted that although the number of assessments each year is overwhelming, increased testing can help prepare students for future test-

ing in specific career fields. “When you take the Bar [exam] or the CPA [exam], it will help to have had practice in school,” Mclaurin said. “But 14… it’s just too many.” The common exams were implemented for the first time at the end of last year. Key said he was surprised at how low scores were. he attributed the poor performance to the fact that teachers were not allowed to see the exams before students. “We took feedback from teachers about all the tests,” Key said. “They had a question on the world history test about climate. That shouldn’t have been on the world history test, it should have been on the earth science test.” Key noted that DPS considered going against the state testing requirements, but were told they would not receive state funding if they chose to disregard n.C. laws. “right now, we are bound,” Key said. “We debated… what would happen if we just said we’re not going to subject our students to these. We were told, ‘We feel your pain… but we are getting a lot of funds from the federal government and it’s going to be harder for you to operate without [them.]’” But Key said it is possible Governor Pat McCrory will change the testing policies in light of public concern. “it looks like the pendulum is swinging a little bit,” Key said. “our governor has heard that…some people think we are testing kids too much and [we need] to dial that back.” Shashawn Anderson, a Durham mother who has put multiple children through the public school system, said she does not feel these changes are as important as they have been made out to be. “every year, they say, ‘oh, we’ve made big changes,’” Anderson said. “But i’ve been through this before, and they said that two years ago and two years before that.”
N.C. voter law earns national lawsuit by Georgia Parke The ChroniCle
The United States Department of Justice will sue the state of north Carolina over the voter identification law that was passed this summer. U.S. Attorney General eric holder announced at 12 p.m.Monday, flanked by three U.S. attorneys from north Carolina and the Acting Assistant Attorney General, that the DoJ will challenge the legality of the law under the Voting rights Act on the basis that it restricts access to voting and participation in the political process based on race. The lawsuit seeks to prevent the legislation, set to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014, from being enforced. “in challenging this law, the Justice Department will present evidence of racially discriminatory effect resulting from these changes,” holder said in a statement. “The Justice Department expects to show that the clear and intended effects of these changes would contract the electorate and result in unequal access to participation in the political process on account of race.” The n.C. voting reform law, signed by Gov. Pat McCrory on Aug. 12, altered voting and registration procedures by eliminating pre-registration for high school students and same-day registration for early voters as well as shortening early voting by seven days and ending provisional ballots. in addition, college iDs are no longer allowed when registering to vote and out-of state iDs must register within 90 days of an election. holder implied that the Justice Department will challenge the early voting, provisional ballots and same-day registration provisions, as well as the one stating that the only forms of iD acceptable for registering to vote are government-issued photo-bearing ones, such as north Carolina drivers’ licenses, U.S. passports and Veteran identification cards. The north Carolina State Board of elections and the Board’s executive Director, Kim Westbrook Strach, will also be defendants in the lawsuit. it will be filed in the Middle District of n.C. holder said that evidence used in the case will come from voter data in north Carolina,
such as a 2005 finding that failure to count outof-precinct provisional ballots has especially affected counting African-American voters. he also cited the high African-American turnout rates in n.C. in the 2008 and 2012 elections, and said the General Assembly passed the law knowing the demographic consequences. “Just months after north Carolina saw the highest overall turnout in sheer numbers in its history – in november 2012 – and within days of the Supreme Court’s Shelby County decision to strike down key provisions of the Voting rights Act – the state legislature took aggressive steps to curtail the voting rights of African Americans,” holder said in the statement. “This is an intentional attempt to break a system that was working. it defies common sense.” The north Carolina State Board of elections reported in April that 318,643 registered voters could not be matched to the Department of Motor Vehicle’s database. An analysis released in January by the Board of elections found that 612,955 registered voters may not have either a DMV-issued drivers license or any state-issued iD. of these, 31 percent are black voters and nearly 57 percent are white. one point five percent are Asian, 1.2 percent American indian or Alaskan native and the rest are undeclared, other or mixed races. in July the United States Supreme Court struck down a provision of the Voting rights Act, originally passed in 1963 to prohibit voting discrimination. The Court declared it unconstitutional to require certain states—including north Carolina—to undergo federal approval or “preclearance” for any changes to voting procedures. The decision was founded on the 15th Amendment to the Constitution. The July ruling did not, however, strike down the provision that judges can put states back under federal scrutiny, although Congress must create a new coverage formula for evaluating voting laws and procedures. “To serve that purpose, Congress—if it is to See n.c. page 6

Food Fac expands mornings CMA discusses divide between Latinos, Latin American hours to offer breakfast
raisa ChoWDhury/The ChroniCle
Central residents can now enjoy breakfast.
by Aubrey Temple The ChroniCle
Central Campus eatery Food Factory now serves up breakfast during the week. in response to limited breakfast options and growing concern from Central Campus students, last week the facility began including breakfast on its menu and extended its operating hours—shifting its opening time from 5 p.m.to 9am, while keeping its closing time of 11pm. The restaurant will be open between 11am and 11pm during the weekend. “We saw a need to increase the hours because of the West Union renovations, which have put a huge strain on Duke Dining,” said Chris Taylor, co-chair of the Duke University Student Dining Ad-
visory Committee. in order to expand dining options, the committee initially wanted to put another food truck on West Campus to serve breakfast. Due to complications with parking policy, the committee instead decided to request the extension of Food Factory’s hours. Jim Schmid, co-owner and co-operator of the Food Factory, agreed to extend the restaurant’s hours after being approached by DUSDAC. “We decided to open because of the dining limitations,” Schmid said. Director of Dining Services robert Coffey noted that Food Factory has extended its hours in the past, but could not maintain them due to an insufficient increase in business. “We hope that this time it will have a different outcome,” Coffey wrote in an email Monday. Food Factory management is concerned about the increased financial burden of compensating staff for more working hours. if enough students don’t come in the mornings, the Food Factory could lose money, Schmid said. “[Business] has been pretty slow, but oK,” Schmid said. “We have to at least break even. if the restaurant doesn’t make money, it can’t be open in the morning.” lavanya Sunder, Duke Student Government vice president for services, said she supports the extension of Food Factory hours. “There’s a need to maximize dining options on Central Campus due to the dining restrictions,” Sunder said.

The Center for Multicultural Affairs held a discussion on the cultural gap between latino and latin American students Monday. With catering provided by the restaurant Moe’s Southwest Grill, the lunch event touched on issues of race, cultural identity and ethnic stereotypes. Titled “Dynamics of the latino vs. latin American experience,” the roundtable brought undergraduates, graduate students and administrators together to discuss identity issues on campus. The event, which was co-sponsored by Mi Gente—the University’s latino student association—was centered around unifying latin American students and latinos. “Being a latino in the U.S. is different from living in your own country,” junior Walter Solorzano said. “There is not much communication between the two groups.” Daniel Camacho, a first-year Divinity School student, said he noticed a lack of unity among the hispanic community as a whole. “often the biggest obstacles to latinos is other latinos,” he said. The divide between latin Americans and latinos can be damaging, said junior Mariel Charles, the discussion facilitator. “it kind of creates an identity crisis. Do i fit in with these people or do i fit in with these people?” he said. Those present at the discussion discussed divides within other cultures as
well. “Among the Asian-American community, there is a sort of invisible divide between east Asians and South Asians,” said li-Chen Chin, director of intercultural programs at the Center for Multicultural Affairs. Solorzano held a similar sentiment, adding that he found the divide in the Asian community to be larger than the one in the hispanic community. When the luncheon concluded, the participants expressed their optimism about the talk. “This [discussion] helped me go forward and to try to find my identity,” junior leasly Salazar said. “it was really helpful.” Chin noted that conversation between members of different cultures are often effective. “[Discussions are] a platform for those who do not necessarily identify with those communities to learn more about their experiences and to get a better understanding of the student populations here at Duke,” she said. Chin added that it is important that these types of discussion are studentdriven. “We try to support the students. We ask them what they would like to talk about and we provide the space,” she said. The Center for Multicultural Affairs’ next function will be a discussion titled en/Countering racism. it will be hosted in the Bryan Center 6 p.m. oct. 4.

Medical student discusses decision to attend medical school to become a doctor Every week The Chronicle collects premedical students’ most pressing questions and poses them to professionals in the field of medicine. This week, The Chronicle’s Anthony Hagouel sat down with Sehj Kashyap, a first-year student in the School of Medicine, about what inspired him to pursue becoming a doctor. The Chronicle: Some students think going to medical school is not worth the time and effort. What would you say to students who are struggling to decide if they want to stay on the pre-med track? Sehj Kashyap: i think if you’re considering going into medicine and debating whether to do it or not, you have to figure out what your motivations are. if your desire is to maximize the amount of money you can make in the least amount of time and effort, then no, medicine is not the profession for that. But if your mission is to make maximal daily impact in people’s lives and meld theoretical and practical science, then medicine could be the avenue for you. Also, we don’t spend nearly as much time hitting the books as we could have. At least with the pass-fail system, you have enough time to do well in your courses and still pursue your interests. TC: What was your ‘i want to be a doc-
tor’ moment? SK: i guess i had a big one because i spent all my life growing up saying that the last thing i want to do is go into medicine. however, in my sophomore year in college the whole health care debate was playing out and i was surprised that America had problems giving health care to its people. There is a free clinic in ithaca [nY], where i was at the time, and i ended up volunteering there in two years where i saw even the littlest amount of patient care go such a long way in making such a dramatic difference in people’s lives, which is when my appreciation of medicine skyrocketed. That’s when i said, ‘i want to pursue this thing called medicine.’ TC: looking back at your time as an undergraduate, do you feel like you missed anything because of your pursuits in the medical field? SK: i know that people who come into college with a mindset of doing medicine quickly plan their trajectory... to get into the medical [scene]. i converted mid-way into medicine, so medicine didn’t really dictate the interests i was pursuing. After i decided to go into medicine, there were a lot of resources and opportunities that i could have pursued if i wasn’t so focused on getting my
grades in order, but on the other hand, pursuing those passions and interests is really important, and i think you should put the most basic amount of effort into getting the pre-med side of things in order, but then really focus on your interests. TC: What are you looking forward to the most in the next few years? SK: hands down i’m most excited to start my second year, [which is] when Duke students go into the hospital and start doing their rotations through all of the different specialties. That’s when a lot of students end up finding what their future medical careers will be. For me, being in surgery—finding out whether i’m cut out for it—is something that i can’t wait to be a part of. TC: This is just your first year at medical school, but have you had any great moments yet? SK: i think that meeting all my classmates—the caliber, the personalities—was really awesome. i remember our white coat ceremony and orientation week where i first got into the idea that, ‘woah, this is medical school,’ really helped me remember why i’m here and what my goals are for the next four years.

Applicants wanted for Duke Endowment reveals Regional Hospital president student Resiliency Project by Rachel Clark The Chronicle
Special to the Chronicle
Kerry Watson leaves his position as president of Duke Regional Hospital, after being part of the Duke University Health System for 10 years.
by Jen Chen
Duke Regional Hospital is in the process of finding a new president following the departure of former President Kerry Watson. After holding leadership positions within the Duke University Health System for the past 10 years, Watson will begin his term as president of NewtonWellesley hospital in Newton, Mass. today Mary Kate Llamas, a spokeswoman for Duke Regional, said Watson’s last day at Duke Regional was this Friday. Katie Galbraith, former vice president of Duke Regional, has taken on the role of interim president and will remain in the position until a new president is found. “Kerry was an exceptional leader for Duke Regional and we are excited for him as he takes on this great new opportunity,” Llamas wrote in an email Monday. Prior to serving as president of Duke Regional, Watson was the senior associate operating officer at Duke Medicine and the chief executive officer of Duke Regional. A new president for Duke Regional has not been chosen, but a selection committee of approximately 12 individuals will conduct the search process for a new president, said Dr. Victor Dzau, chancellor for health affairs and president and CEO of DUHS. Dzau said the members of the committee are currently being finalized. “This presidential search will be a combined effort between Duke University Health System and Duke Regional Hospital,” Dzau said. Anyone in the United States can apply for the position and a small number of qualified candidates will be selected for an interview, Dzau said. Dzau will
make the final selection with Dr. William Fulkerson, executive vice president of DUHS. Despite repeated attempts for comment, Watson could not be reached in time for publication. Galbraith said she originally planned to stay at Duke Regional for only a couple of years, but chose to stay because she enjoyed working with the dedicated employees at the hospital “I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to serve as interim president and provide leadership for our team during this transition,” she said. As interim president, I see my role as supporting our physicians, employees and volunteers to continue to provide the best possible care to every patient every day.” Duke Regional—which was previously known as Durham Regional Hospital until this January—has been managed by DUHS since a partnership agreement in 1998. This past summer, it was ranked the third best hospital in the Triangle and the fourth best hospital out of the roughly 147 facilities in North Carolina by the U.S. News and World Report. “We have an incredible team of dedicated employees, physicians and volunteers who live our core value—caring for our patients, their loved ones and each other—day in and day out,” Galbraith said. “Our vision as a hospital is to be the best community hospital in North Carolina.” Llamas said she is confident in Galbraith’s abilities to lead the hospital during the interim period. “Our entire organization has relied on Katie’s knowledge and expertise for years and knows she is an exceptional leader,” Llamas noted.

Trustees of the Charlotte-based Duke Endowment approved a $3.4 million dollar grant for the Student Resiliency Project, which will research how four college campuses can help students cope with stressful circumstances. The four-year grant will allow researchers to look at ways campuses can build resiliency—which the project defines as the ability for students to work through adverse situations. The researchers will look at resiliency at Duke, Johnson C. Smith University, Davidson College and Furman University. “We all deal with stress… some better than others. Through this project we hope to better understand why some students cope well and others don’t,” Vice President for Student Affairs Larry Moneta wrote in an email Monday. Faculty, practitioners and students from all four institutions will be participating in the project. The research will be overseen by Tim Strauman—professor of psychology and neuroscience— and Molly Weeks—a psychology and neuroscience postdoctoral associate. Individual research teams at each university will conduct their own projects or activities as well. “A steering committee made up of staff and faculty of all four schools will develop the formal budget,” Moneta said. “Most of the research funds will come to Duke since we’ll be coordinating the research aspect for all four schools.” The stress level of college students is increasing due to economic burdens and the growing pressure for students to lead and innovate, said Tom Shandley, vice president for student life and dean of students. “The uncertain future created by the economic downturn has created more anxiety for some students than in past generations,” Shandley wrote in an email Monday. “When you add the additional burden of college affordability,
student debt and the reality of having to make loan payments with the above, that is indeed a pressure felt.” In the first year of the project, campus leaders will design the research model, which will include opportunities for students, faculty and practitioners to work together, said Susan McConnell, director of the higher education and director of human resources at the Duke Endowment. The second year will incorporate data collection and analysis as the project tries to identify key sources of stress among the colleges. In the third year, there will be a pilot intervention in student resiliency and an assessment of its effectiveness, and in the fourth year each campus will develop its own program to enhance student resiliency at school, McConnell added. “The Trustees of the Duke Endowment saw this as a chance for these four schools to work together on an important issue,” McConnell wrote in an email Monday. “We expect the research coming from this project will add to the field and lead to interventions focused on student well-being.” By working with a diverse array of educational facilities the organization hopes to identify key factors that will encourage resiliency in the four schools, which can then be applied to other schools throughout the United States. As part of the Resiliency Project, there will be a three-year summer research initiative at Davidson. Two student representatives from each of the schools in the program will develop model and strategies to cope with stress each summer. “It is my hope that we will learn more about... what, if anything, a college or university can do to help,” Shandley said. “Whether that help comes from inside the classroom or in residence, environmental influences should matter and I expect that we will learn what can be done to promote student resiliency on our respective campuses.”

Duke serves as an exception to the law because it is a private post-secondary education institution, but public schools like the University of north Carolina at Chapel hill must comply. “The policy here is to follow the law — private institutions like Duke do have the power to prohibit weapons on campus, but UnC’s policy is abiding by and enforcing the law,” said Jeff McCracken, chief of police and director of public safety at UnC. The law presents a novel situation for UnC, McCracken added. “Previously, handguns were prohibited from school ground, period,” McCracken said. “The change is allowing handgun permit holders to bring firearms onto campuses as
long as the guns are locked in a vehicle. This new legislation also only addresses handguns, not long guns of any type.” Although McCracken said that it is too early to tell what the consequences may be, he expressed concerns that the new law could potentially result in tragedies such as suicides and accidental discharges of the weapons which could have been avoided otherwise. McCracken added that although handguns are not legally permitted to be taken out of the vehicle, students might be tempted to take action on their own to address dangerous situations on campus and put their and others’ safety in jeopardy. “if we were to have an active campus shooter, the students might be tempted to help out in a situation like that,” McCracken said. “My officers are trained to respond to the sound of gun fires. however, when they come to a situation where the campus shooter is not the only one with weapons, unnecessary chaos would be created.” Before the passage of the law, the police chiefs of the UnC system’s 17 different campuses signed a joint statement in June opposing the bill. According to the statement, the chiefs believe that “passage of this bill would increase the risk to the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors.” The efforts to protest the bill, however, were unsuccessful. A number of Duke students have voiced support in response to the University’s stance on the law. First-year Sarah hakani said that she feels much safer being on Duke’s campus where no guns are allowed regardless of where they are stored. “i would be less comfortable with people around me having guns in their cars that i don’t know about,” hakani said.

Duke looks for revenge against UNC-Wilmington by Kendra Schultz THE CHRONICLE
To avoid its first loss in nonconference play, Duke will have to draw upon the lessons it learned in not one, but two difficult losses. The Blue Devils, UNCW who have tallied three of their four vs. wins at home, will Duke host UNC-Wilmington in a 7 p.m. game Tuesday at Koskinen TUESDAY, 7 p.m. Stadium. Koskinen Stadium Fresh off a lategame defeat against No. 2 Notre Dame Friday, Duke (4-3-2) remains winless in ACC play. The Fighting Irish scored a pair of goals in the final two minutes of the contest to top the Blue Devils in South Bend, Ind. “It was a tough loss for us, especially because we fought so hard throughout the game, and to get two goals scored on us in the last two minutes is deflating,” head coach John Kerr said. “But I must say we had a really good training session here [Monday] morning, and we’re going to bounce back Tuesday night against Wilmington.” Senior defender Sebastien Ibeagha said that despite allowing two late goals in the loss, the Blue Devils took away a number of positives from their contest against Notre Dame, most of which came on the defensive end. The Fighting Irish peppered the Duke goal with 17 shots throughout the

Alex Long stood tall between the pipes for the Blue Devils, making three saves in the contest. “Although the Notre Dame game we did lose, a lot of good things came out of it,” Ibeagha said. “Defensively we played

very well. We’ve had a problem the whole year defensively, but we kept them out until two minutes left… we made them struggle to get what they wanted.” Duke will take on a UNC-Wilmington (4-3-1) team that has struggled in the attacking third this season, registering just 10 goals in its first eight contests. The team lacks a dominant offensive threat,
Nets to begin training camp at Duke by Staff Reports

Most of the prevailing storylines surrounding the 2013-14 Blue Devils will be centered around Rodney Hood and Jabari Parker, but head coach Mike Krzyzewski said that the most important player on this year’s team could be sophomore Amile Jefferson. After starting just seven games during his freshman camAMILE JEFFERSON paign, Jefferson was Sophomore forward listed by Krzyzewski alongside Parker and Hood as three of Duke’s tentative starters for the upcoming season at the head coach’s sea-
son-opening press conference. “To me one of the key guys on this team is Amile Jefferson. I think he’s been fantastic in our preseason,” Krzyzewski said. “He may complement [Hood and Parker] better than any guy on our team.... I don’t know the five guys we would start if we had a game today, but three of them would be Jabari, Rodney and Amile.” Krzyzewski mentioned point guard Quinn Cook will likely start as well. At the Blue Devils’ open practice Saturday morning, Parker, Hood, Jefferson and Cook all suited up for the same team in a scrimmage. Sophomore guard Rasheed Sulaimon rounded out the starting lineup, with redshirt senior Andre Dawkins See JEFFERSON, page 9
with no player on the team having more than two goals to their name thus far. The Seahawks defeated Colonial Athletic Association newcomer College of Charleston 1-0 in their last match. Forward Jack Ward notched his first goal of the season for UNC-Wilmington’s lone tally. “They have a solid team. They had a great win against Charleston Saturday night and they beat us last year in a tight game,” Kerr said. “We have a point to prove tomorrow night that we have to bounce back from that result last year.” When the Blue Devils take the field against the Seahawks Tuesday night, the team will have the memory of a 2-1 defeat to UNC-Wilmington last season resting in the back of its mind. Like Friday’s loss to Notre Dame, it was two late goals that took a potential victory away from Duke last year at UNCW Soccer Stadium. The Blue Devils surrendered both scores in the last 10 minutes of the contest to come away with a bitter defeat. With a similar loss still stinging, Duke will have to convert more offensive chances should it hope to keep its undefeated nonconference record intact. Ibeagha said that the lessons his team learned in South Bend could be what makes the difference as his team seeks retribution against an in-state foe. “They beat us last year so we have to go back out there and get this win,” Ibeagha said. “If we play like we played against Notre Dame, I think we’ll be fine going forward.”
The Brooklyn Nets will be the only NBA team to open up their 2013-14 training camp on the road. The Nets will begin practice Tuesday at Duke, using the Blue Devils’ practice facility at the Michael W. Krzyzewski Center. Brooklyn will hold five days of practice at Duke between Tuesday and Saturday. One of the busier teams during the NBA offseason, the Nets made a splash this summer by acquiring Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry from the Boston Celtics in a blockbuster trade. Brooklyn hopes to combine the former Boston triumvirate with last year’s nucleus of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez to form one of the more dangerous offensive teams in the Eastern Conference. Garnett, Pierce and Terry were not the
team’s only acquisitions this summer. The Nets spent their first-round draft selection on former Blue Devil Mason Plumlee, who averaged 17.1 points and 10.0 rebounds during his senior season with the Blue Devils. The 22nd overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft had a successful run with Brooklyn in the Orlando Summer League and will begin his first NBA training camp at his alma mater. Plumlee is not the Nets only connection to the Duke program. General Manager Billy King spent four years playing for head coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils before going on to a career as an executive with the Nets and Philadelphia 76ers. King was a member of two Final Four teams in 1986 and 1988. He was the captain of the 1988 squad and was named National Defensive Player of See NETS, page 8

Cash and Crowder earn ACC weekly honors by Nick Martin THE CHRONICLE
Two Duke players received ACC Player of the Week honors following the team’s 38-31 victory against Troy Saturday at Wallace Wade Stadium. Junior receiver Jamison Crowder was named the conference’s Receiver of the Week after reeling in seven catches for 149 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Brandon Connette. Redshirt sophomore safety Jeremy Cash earned ACC Defensive Back of the Week honors by registering 14 tackles—including 2.5 tackles for a loss—and the first interception of his collegiate career. The award marks Crowder’s third ACC Player of the Week honor in his last five games. He was previously named ACC Specialist of the Week twice this season following victories against N.C. Central and Pittsburgh. “Whenever I get the ball I’m looking for big things,” Crowder said. “Whether it’s to score or set us up in good position where we can be better effective as an offense.” Since starting quarterback Anthony Boone went out with a broken collarbone against Memphis, Crowder has adjusted to playing with Connette under center, averaging 109 receiving yards per game in each of his three starts. Crowder has proved to be one of the most dangerous offensive threats in the NCAA this season. The Monroe, N.C. native currently leads the nation in total punt return yards and ranks sixth in both receiving yards and average yards per punt return. “The kicking game is something we take pride in,” Crowder said. “Most definitely this year, because we’ve returned two [punts for touchdowns]” The junior receiver registered his school-record seventh touchdown reception of 50 yards or more when he sped behind the Trojan defense, hauled in a throw from Connette and outran the Troy defense for a 60yard touchdown to put the Blue Devils ahead 21-7. “Jamison is always a deep threat just because of the special talent that he is…. We’ve got so many threats deep, that defenses don’t know who it’s going to,” Connette said. On the other side of the ball, Cash leads a Duke defense that, struggling at times this season, came up big for the Blue Devils in the second half Saturday. The Plantation, Fla., native earned his first ACC weekly honor and currently leads the league in tackles

and tackles per game, with 51 and 10.2, respectively. “It’s been a while since [Cash has] played. He’s a young guy,” Cutcliffe said. “He is a tough guy. I told him, I said, ‘Where you’re playing right now, that’s like playing shortstop. Everything’s going through there.’ He’s going to be a tired, sore youngster tomorrow, but he’s a pretty tough guy.” For a defense that let up an average of 49.2 points through its final five games last season, Cash’s arrival via transfer from Ohio State was welcomed, as he took his place in the backfield place alongside fellow standout Ross Cockrell. On the final play of Saturday’s game, Cash managed to pull down Corey Robinson’s desperateion heave to seal the game for Duke. The pick capped an impressive second half defensive performance by the Blue Devils, who held the Trojans to 10 points.

serving as the unit’s sixth man. Jefferson appeared in 32 of Duke’s 36 games last season, averaging 4.0 points and 2.9 points per contest and ranking second on the team by shooting 54.3 percent from the field. When senior Ryan Kelly went down with a foot injury in the team’s second ACC contest, it was Jefferson alongside current senior Josh Hairston who stepped up to fill the void. Jefferson made all seven of his starts during the
13-game span in which Duke played without Kelly, and averaged 19.6 minutes per game during that stretch. Jefferson averaged 6.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game with Kelly out of the lineup, and the playing time he saw during ACC play was crucial to his development. “Because of Ryan’s injury, he had the opportunity to play a little bit more and start some games for us and did well,” Krzyzewski said. “He’s got an unbelievable personality to play the game. He’s such an easy guy to play with, not bothered on the court, he’s such a good teammate.” Now expected to take over as a starter, Jefferson will be forced to adjust to a new role and provide support for the Blue Devils on the glass and the defensive end. The forward’s 7-foot-2 wingspan should help, especially as Duke shifts its philosophy to include more ball pressure and full-court defense. “Last year I was called on when somebody went down or to step in when somebody in foul trouble,” Jefferson said. “Now this year I have a chance to play a really key role, to be that man in the middle for us and maybe not have a position, but be that guy who can do some of the little things.” In addition to honing his skills during the offseason, the Philadelphia native made it a priority to put on weight to become more of a presence in the post. After starting his freshman season with just 185 pounds to support his 6-foot-9 frame, Jefferson returned to school in

er against Davidson. But regardless of the outcome, it appears Jefferson will be a player to watch as he heads into his sophomore campaign. “Just knowing my role on this team, being able to compliment the guys Rodney and Jabari, being able to play off Quinn and Rasheed, it’s fun,” Jefferson said. “So to see that Coach sees what I’m seeing, it’s really good for me.”

No guns at Duke Starting today, North Carolina residents who have permits to carry concealed handguns can tote their weapons to a variety of new venues— including bars and public college campuses. We believe that the new gun laws are misguided, dangerous and incompatible with a commitment to both public safety and the free exchange of ideas. Although public universities have no choice but to comply with new laws, private institutions, like Duke, can create its own policies for carrying guns on campus. We commend the University for its decision to continue its longstanding ban of guns on campus. Duke’s decision to uphold its ban on guns amounts to a tacit rejection of the state’s new gun law. Given that the rules governing gun ownership and use are unlikely to change in the near future, we believe Duke has dealt with these legislative shifts in the best way possible. We support Duke’s rejection of the new legislation not only because guns in public places create more opportunities for violence, but also because the presence of guns on
The Milgram experiment was actually a lot more severe than it is described as here. Almost everyone did shock and torture the “learner”, but that 65% is the amount who reached the absolute maximum voltage.
Editorial people around them, and college campuses cannot remain centers of free inquiry and exchange if students and faculty are faced daily with the threat of violent death. In our view, the only place for a gun on a college campus is in the holster of a trained police officer. Even though Duke will continue to prohibit guns on campus, local bars and restaurants may not. Bars and restaurants can choose whether or not to ban guns from their premises, and, for some students, the possibility of encountering guns when they venture off campus will deter them from exploring local restaurants. To prevent the new gun laws from discouraging

campus would undermine our ability to promote a healthy and collaborative academic environment. Carrying a gun comes with an implicit threat. Gun holders can, at any moment, kill the
students from exploring the city, we ask the University to consider publishing a list of establishments that ban guns so students can make an informed decision about where to go when they leave campus. We also encourage Duke to publish an official statement expressing its opposition to the new legislation. Although we do not expect the Republican legislature to revoke the new laws—which mobilize conservative voters and excite influential donors, like the National Rifle Association—at Duke’s behest, an official statement from the University would signal Duke’s public commitment to stricter gun legislation. Although Duke may remain immune from looser gun regulations, the public universities with which we collaborate— including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill—are legally obligated to adhere to the law, which is not only damaging to their academic environments, but might also hinder effective collaboration between the universities. Gun violence is tragic but avoidable, and we hope guns never make their way onto Duke’s campus.

ones he managed to deliver. One of his students, Ivan Turgenev—who later wrote the famous novel “Fathers and Sons”—described the final oral exam: Professor Gogol “sat there with a kerchief tied around his head, allegedly because he was suffering from toothache, with an expression of utter despondency on his face, and didn’t open his mouth.” The other professor sat next to the silent Gogol and did all the talking. Literature fans can only be grateful for Gogol’s failure as an academic. Of course, he had to leave the classroom, for he was going to become a great writer! I’d leave too! It’s obvious in retrospect. Still, I sometimes wonder: Was it just a simple matter of “Dead Souls,” “The Inspector General” and “The Overcoat” stewing inside, begging to be written, or might his students have driven him away? You bought your professor. Do you want him or her to stay, or do you want him or her to go away and write the next great novel? It is in your power.

• Cough and sneeze on your professor so he or she will know how sick you are and forgive you for missing the assignment. • Miss five classes without communicating with your professor. After missing the mid-term, email him or her and say that your great-aunt died last week. • Perform personal hygiene in class. • After missing class, ask your professor to go over the lecture for you specially. • Read the first five pages. At the beginning of class, shoot your hand up and make a really intelligent comment about something on page four. • Spend all night cooking something special for your course presentation. Forget that your grade has nothing to do with your cooking skills. • Give your professor your extra Duke basketball tickets. • Ask your professor: “Are we going to have class on LDOC?” (HINT: What do the letters stand for?). • Crinkle junk-food wrappers in class. and leave them on your desk for the next person. • Throw recyclable junk-food containers in the trash can (the one next to the recycling bin). • Bring cupcakes for the whole class because it’s Dostoevsky’s birthday (HINT: November 11). • Explain to your professor that you need an A in this class. Cry when you get a B+. • Cheat. • Call your pre-major advisor at 6:30 a.m. on the day your registration window opens. Call your librarian at home at 2:00 a.m. on your research paper’s due date to get some last-minute references. • Back up your document. • Email your professor after you graduate to tell him or her you just reread “Crime and Punishment,” even though you didn’t have to.

The masochistic allure of goalkeeping
icture all of your friends celebrating an incredible triumph, while you are confined to a small, lonesome patch of land far away. This is life as a goalkeeper—this is my life. Life as a goalkeeper on the varsity women’s field hockey team at Duke University. BBC Radio once aired a piece called “The Loneliness of the Goalkeeper”—a
on the ride. With nearly four years playing Division I athletics, I am privileged to be a number two goalkeeper, not simply for the value of teamwork and pride in something bigger than yourself. I am lucky to have been hardened by this role, and I am lucky that I play behind and support arguably the best goalkeeper in the NCAA and the best defense in the ACC. I am lucky that

How i learned to start worrying
n January of 2014, Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” will celebrate its 50th anniversary. In January of 2014, Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” will celebrate its 50th anniversary. In anticipation of this
comedic tragedy, a discussion of the cavernous space between goalposts and below the crossbar. It is about the “thin, tight rope” on which a goalkeeper walks, a rope teetering with every motion, a role pressured to be flawless for the full match, every match. Goalkeeping is a specialized, focused skill set—a non-transferrable, disciplined, meticulous role. The two polarized lives which a goalkeeper can lead create a cruel binary: living behind a team of 10 who allow a constant barrage of opposing attack, shot after shot, forcing doubledigit saves and gymnastic feats to cover the cage, versus the keepers who go all but a single, fleeting moment of a 70-minute match standing on the desolate, lonely island that is the opposite side of the field, 80 yards away from her teammates’ ponytails and passing sequences. The broadcast asserts that all goalkeepers possess “a desperate sort of courage.” We beg to be heroic, but are reliant on the players in the field to deal the cards. We want the ball, but our teammates disagree—that means they’ve failed at their job. We are shrouded in the backfield behind 10 other bodies for the cause. Keepers are the loneliest players on the field. But, without a doubt, the loneliest, most conflicted, masochistic of them all is the back-up goalkeeper. The number two. That’s me. Before entering the collegiate game, I never sat the bench. I played for teams that allowed zero shots for the opposition, and for teams that forced 30-some saves in a single outing. I captained teams. I won state titles. I traveled to other countries to represent the United States. I would be lying if I said I was complacent in my current role. I would be remiss if I said I favored a spot on the sideline to the grit, guts and glory of playing under those dazzling Friday night lights. But what I have learned in my tenure as a Blue Devil is that it can’t just be the in-game minutes that you live for, but instead, the culture that you live in and the character you build. It is the resilience that comes from working and working and working with little to show in the stat book, but managing to create glory somewhere else
they make me better. I am fortunate to have been tested—mentally pushed to the verge of insanity after 12 months a year of everyday physical strain with what many view as a lackluster return of a few minutes in the goal. Those people are wrong. The return is there—you just have to find it another way. At Duke, we are a squad of 21. We are not 11 starting players and some people on the sidelines wearing matching uniforms, trading glances between the clock’s tedious down-ticking and the artistry on the field in front of them. We are 21 members of that squad, and without all 21 of us, we do not operate. Be it a starter, the last player on the bench, our athletic trainer or the back-up goalkeeper, we hold value in more ways than we know. I have seen abundant scouting reports and learned offensive presses and defensive outletting schemes. I have been frustrated to what felt like the point of no return, and I have, more than once, contemplated if I belonged in a Duke uniform. But I have also felt the unreal, unparalleled emotion of beating UNC in penalty shootouts this past weekend, handing them their first loss of the year, merely the 11th time Duke has won in the Tobacco Road rivalry in field hockey history. I have endured the implausible whirlwind of emotion in realizing that last Friday will live in my mind for the rest of my life, and no one can possibly take that away. The beauty of athletics is that you can— and will—learn more about character and heart and commitment than about how to run fast. The beauty of athletics is that you can—and will—learn how to be a professional in something other than your sport. The beauty of athletics is that every moment of frustration, every moment of excitement and heartbreak that accompanies being a team player— being a back-up keeper—teaches lessons far beyond how to save a ball. I might not always be a game-changer, but the game has forever changed me, and I am lucky for that.
upcoming milestone—and given all of the arguments that are sure to surround potential negotiations between the United States and Iran on nuclear policy—it is worth revisiting Kubrick’s characterization of Cold War-era nuclear policy as the height of absurdity. One troubling aspect of nuclear policy is that it is essentially subjective. Despite the existence of things like Transparency and Confidence Building Measures between nations, there are a number of historical anecdotes that do raise the possibility that the decision to engage in a nuclear exchange could some day come down to the whims of a handful of influential people. Consider Lt. Gen. Curtis E. LeMay, first chief of the United States Strategic Air Command. Before the Cold War, LeMay served as the head of the 20th Bomber Command and oversaw a firebombing of Tokyo that killed over 84,000 people in a single night alone. “We knew we were going to kill a lot of women and kids,” LeMay would later say of that incident. “Had to be done.” In a 1955 meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he presented a plan for a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia that would have involved an “instantaneous destruction of 645 military targets, 118 cities and 60 million people” and claimed that he had the power to authorize such a strike without any input from President Eisenhower. (If LeMay seems like the exception and not the rule, consider that President Truman referred to the bombing of Hiroshima as “the greatest thing in history” and claimed, according to one biographer, that he’d “never been happier about any announcement he had ever made.”) Commanders like LeMay are lampooned in “Dr. Strangelove,” but Kubrick’s characters are far closer to reality than we might like to think. Even if those in charge could be trusted, there are other reasons to doubt the ability of even the U.S. to control these weapons. On Jan. 24, 1961, for instance, a B-52 bomber carrying two Mark-39 hydrogen bombs broke apart in the air over Goldsboro, N.C., killing three of its crew members and releasing the two weapons of mass destruction over United States soil. When the bombs—which crashed to Earth but thankfully did not explode—were recovered by a team of bomb disposal experts that included munitions specialist Jack ReVelle, one of them was found to have armed itself through five of the six stages that are required for detonation. A Mark-39 bomb is almost 300 times as powerful as the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in

1945. Had this one exploded, ReVelle explained during a presentation at East Carolina University earlier this year, it would have made a crater “eight football fields wide,” destroying “every structure within a four-mile radius” and earning a “100-percent kill zone for eight and a half miles in every direction.” The blast could have also spread lethal fallout to major cities like New York, Philadelphia
and Washington, D.C. In addition to this immediate carnage, there is also the possibility that an accidental detonation could be misinterpreted as a deliberate enemy attack and thereby precipitate a hasty international nuclear conflict. As investigative journalist Eric Schlosser details in his new book, the Goldsboro crash of 1961 was just one of at least 700 alarming incidents involving 1,250 nuclear weapons that occurred between 1950 and 1968 alone. The problems with nuclear weapons are not limited to highly fallible officials or the ever-present threat of a catastrophic accident. Perhaps the most absurd element of U.S. nuclear policy has to do with things like the Military Strategic and Tactical Relay program. A satellite system that was designed to, in the words of New York Times reporter and investigative journalist Tim Weiner, “endure an all-out nuclear war, coordinating the detonation of five or 10 or 15 thousand nuclear warheads, choreographing the ballistic ballet down to the millisecond,” Milstar represents a $20 billion boondoggle that can barely even be said to work at all. Weiner says that Milstar has been accidentally set off in the past by defective computer chips, routine tests, a flock of geese and even the moon. Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter has described Milstar as “a very complicated system that’s prone to failure.” We have funneled away valuable time and resources to build an apparatus that will allow a few of us to survive a nuclear holocaust so we can live out our days foraging through the ruins of an irradiated landscape. (For what it’s worth, we’re not the only ones; the famous 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident also nearly brought an accidental nuclear war down on all of our heads.) When Stanley Kubrick sat down to write “Dr. Strangelove,” he was frustrated by the way in which the dark drama that he wanted to write kept coming out as comedy. “I found myself tossing away what seemed to me to be very truthful insights because I was afraid the audience would laugh,” the filmmaker explained. “After all, what could be more absurd than the very idea of two mega-powers willing to wipe out all human life because of an accident?” In the 50 years since “Dr. Strangelove” first appeared, the United States has seemingly tried its best to answer to that question.
