It's not about wins and losses. It's about recognizing challenges that are bigger than basketball and having the courage to stand up to battle them. Dean Smith showed us that.
Krzyzewski isn't just a coach these days, but an institution. The framework of the entire university is shaped by his program, and in turn, by Cameron Indoor itself. Etched in my memory are the slate of banners hung in the rafters, one after another, after another. Four national titles, 11 Final Fours -- and Krzyzewski's latest accomplishment, 1,000 career wins, an unprecedented feat and a banner that rightfully hangs all by itself.
Imagine you are dining in a restaurant with a friend, and your friend suddenly begins to choke on a piece of food, grabbing for her neck. What do you do? Did you say the Heimlich Maneuver? Hopefully so. The Heimlich's simplicity makes it easy to recall during extremely stressful situations.
We will all become closer to achieving peace - as Israelis, Palestinians or concerned members of the international community - if we refrain from intransigence and instead take all perspectives into account.
The adhan can help us recall what gives our lives meaning, and can help us cultivate an attitude of gratefulness. It can help us look up from the cellphone in our hand and notice the blue sky, the purple shadows stretching across the snow or the smiles of those we pass by.
Franklin Graham has little or no connection with Duke, and knows little about its heritage and traditions and commitment to its religious and educational values. My personal and family connections to Duke and Islam lead me to an entirely opposite conclusion from Mr. Graham.
Graham may claim he speaks like Jesus, but his actions speak much louder otherwise. Thus, in looking at his words you can call Graham a Christian preacher. But in looking at his acts, you just can't call Graham Christ-like.
I am proud of my peers for leading by example in challenging marginalizing language and bias both on and off the field, building safer and more inclusive communities, and validating the identities and experiences of people of all backgrounds.

When you allow a bit of mystery into the end, you let the reader know that you're okay with not knowing everything. That shows maturity, and it lets the colleges know that you're in a perfect place to dive into the complicated issues you're going to face in your college classes.
In making choices, a guidepost is to imagine yourself at the end of your days, reflecting back on your life. And ask these questions -- What are the things that I will regret not doing? What are the things that will cease to be meaningful in the long run? In which category does the choice fall.
Yes, Harvard's previous sexual assault policy was utterly inadequate to protect survivors of sexual misconduct -- as are far too many policies still in place at other American universities. But the new policy goes dangerously far in another direction, and law professors were right to call their university out.
Two nations that account for more than one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions reached a climate deal. The United States will accelerate the pace of its net greenhouse gas emissions reductions from 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020 to 26-28 percent by 2025.
Nearly 25 years ago, a new cardiology fellow from Duke University thrust himself into his profession in a big way. He attended his first Scientific Se...
By letting this decision, and others like it, stand, the Supreme Court seems to be recognizing the amazingly swift turnaround in public attitudes on the issue of same-sex marriage and on gay and lesbian rights, in general.
Barack Obama deserves credit for delivering on his promise to shrink the deficit -- a promise that Mitt Romney and his tax cuts would surely have violated -- but Americans have to ask themselves whether they really want a smaller government.
