Spring rolls: Rolling through spring and into summer http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/food-drink/article25274689.html
I confess that I’m a reluctant salad eater. I blame a childhood of side salads topped with gloppy ranch dressing and cherry tomatoes as hard as rubber balls.

Mango chicken salad makes a summer meal for 2 http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/food-drink/article25316329.html
Ripe, juicy mangoes are one of my favorite things in summer. If you’re looking for ways to use them, try a simple salad featuring mangoes, chicken and Chinese noodles.

SAFER barriers everywhere solve what is becoming an all-too-familiar problem - NASCAR's most valuable assets, the drivers, keep finding the unprotected walls in accidents. It’s not an easy fix, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

It won’t be easy or cheap, but NASCAR should require SAFER barriers everywhere, at every track, because the sport’s most valuable assets, the drivers, keep finding unprotected concrete walls.

Interactive: History of the Confederate flag and where it’s found today
http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article25421170.html
What some may consider to be the confederate flag is actually just one of four flags commonly used during the Civil War — in fact, the battle flag often recognized and used in symbols was never an official flag of the Confederate States.

Twitter feed have informed us that Pizza Hut is launching a new stuffed-crust pizza. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/food-drink/article25143436.html
In the past few weeks, my Facebook and Twitter feed have informed me, repeatedly, that Pizza Hut is launching a new stuffed-crust pizza. Is this a big deal? It is when the crust is stuffed with hot dogs, apparently.

Between 1992 and 1998, UNC won seven consecutive games against Duke at the Smith Center. In the 16 years since, the Tar Heels have won just six times against Duke at home. (Be sure to vote in the poll.)

Beginning in 1998-99, UNC has lost 10 times to Duke at the Smith Center. Saturday night, the Tar Heels have a chance to beat their rival for the second consecutive year at home.

With just eight scholarship players – and almost as many banged up ankles – Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has ditched the cliche and told his players to bring their egos with them to the floor. It worked Wednesday night against Wake Forest, as Duke dealt the Demon Deacons a 94-51 beatdown.

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/college/mens-basketball/article12548492.html
Duke freshman Grayson Allen had a career-high 27 points and the Duke Blue Devils cruised past the Wale Forest Demon Deacons 94-51.
