Duke University trustee David M. Rubenstein is giving $1.9 million to Jewish Life at Duke to expand programming, fund building renovations and enhance the college experience for Jewish students.

Most of the gift -- $1.5 million -- will fund new initiatives and staff positions for a Jewish student population whose needs and interests are changing, said Rebecca Simons, the center's director. New programs are expected to reflect an increasing student demand for information and resources related to globalization, leadership and community, she said.

You take a step and then you take another step. You’re on the bus
You regret having only gone to sleep only a few hours earlier
You blame your team for winning but not really because you figure you could sleep on the bus and well, you like to brag about your team to people back home
You find a seat in the back of the bus because you want your space to sleep, think and be
You arrange your body in a manner that is somewhat comfortable
