Greenberg fall preview: This season, Rauschenberg, Miro and Rembrandt

The fall season is the busiest time of the year; school begins, the leaves turn and art in all its forms competes for our attention. This year is no exception. The next months will see art exhibitions of the giants from the golden age Dutch and Flemish artists of the 17th century to those of the 20th. And while modern painting was moving off the walls and out of the frame, a mechanical object called the camera was changing everything we thought we knew about the visible world and we’ll see what that looks like.

Fall preview: Dance increasing strong presence in arts scene

Offerings from a brand-new, Durham-based dance organization; two women – one from the Triangle, the other from India -- who are trailblazers in their dance forms; performers from Rio de Janiero; work by a Haitian-born, Durham resident; and a new, autobiographical dance by a Duke professor/dance scholar/performer liven up the dance scene this fall.

From ‘The Daily Show’ to Carolina Theatre

John Hodgman became a household face, if not yet a name, when Apple commercials ran for years with him playing the nerdy PC. For the record, he’s actually a Mac man.

Lewis Bowling: NCCU's athletic tradition among richest in N.C.

A short list of the great athletes connected to NCCU will ultimately leave out many deserving name, but hopefully the following names will remind area college sports fans that NCCU stands proudly as a university in athletics along with academics.

Graedons: Only use Vicks as intended

Q. Years ago, my mother, who was a nurse, used Vicks VapoRub almost as a cure-all for us children. One hot summer day, my family and friends were out in the yard enjoying themselves while I was in the house suffering silently with a very sore rectum.

Matthews: Lunch boxer rebellion

My poor mother.
Growing up, I tormented both parents.  Criminally lazy, I did my very few chores only after the threat of bodily harm. I took evil delight in pushing my brother’s buttons (most of which I’d installed). I’d try to see how many kids I could drive with in my 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger, Lancelot (the record stands at 11). My religion was “Question Authority.”

Mauer: Eliminating starchy carbs

It's been more than half a century since the theory -- yes the theory -- was floated that saturated fats caused heart disease, and food manufacturers slowly started to remove fat. In the 1990s you watched as "Low Fat" and No Fat" started popping up on grocery store shelves like dandelions in a field.

DPS Corner: All children, schools matter

Last week 3,100 eager students poured into our five year-round schools for the start of the school year. They were excited to meet new classmates, teachers and challenges, and their energy was catching. As I visited these schools on the first day, I felt just as excited. It was a new beginning for all of us.
