According to an analysis by Italys Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura, moder ate consumption of beer could reduce the drinkers risk of heart disease by 31 percent. The Italian foundation based its habits of drinking beer, wine and spir its. Previous health studies have indicated that the antioxidants in red wine could help reduce drinkers risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. However, it shocks some that beer Chelsea Egozi, a 21-year-old telecommunication senior, said she couldnt believe the study was real due to her dislike for the alcoholic beverage. Beer just tastes disgusting, she said. The carbonation makes you burp. While health sciences senior Dunja Zelihic, 21, has the same distaste for beer as Egozi, she said she isnt sur prised that beer could be healthy. If wine can help, then I guess I see nothing wrong with a glass of beer, Zelihic said. Alcohol can increase high-density lipoprotein, or good cholesterol levels, which can reduce the risk of hardening of the arteries and thickening of Post article Wednesday. Both risks are direct contributors to heart disease. This may challenge the belief that wine was healthy in spite of the alcohol the drink may be because of it, the article noted. According to the study, the best recipe for good heart health is an English pint of beer with a strength of 5 percent alcohol. Maya Pugh-Jones, a 23-year-old sociology senior, enjoys two or three Indian Pale Ales with dinner a couple of nights a week. She said sitting back with a good beer is not only healthy physically but also mentally. Having a beer just takes the edge off, she said. Its good for your psyche.

The university placed second in the large university category of PETAs Most Vegan-Friendly College Contest, which began with 32 universities and concluded voting on Nov. 14. Results were announced Monday. The University of California, Santa Cruz, took the top large university spot. Northwestern University won in the small university category. Vegans do not consume any animal products, including dairy products, meat, eggs and honey, according to PETAs website. The incorporation of Meatless Mondays at the two on-campus dining halls contributed to UFs ranking this year, said Jared Misner, campaign manager for UFs Meatless Monday and a 21-year-old public relations senior. Misner is a former Alligator employee. The program campaigns for the dining halls to offer meatless menus on Mondays. Dining halls continue to serve meat on Mondays, but there are more vegan options available. Misner said he thinks UF could win the contest if the dining halls offered only vegan fare on Mondays. Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for Gator Dining Services, said in an email, We are very excited to be recognized as the No. 2 most veganfriendly school in the nation.

Todays question: Do you prefer beer over wine? Price IncreaseHigher minimum wage increases unemploymentA recent plan sponsored by Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., to impose minimum wage laws on disabled workers is bad news for some with disabilities. Its a simple law of economics. All else being equal, increasing the minimum wage increases unemployment. According to The Wall Street Journal, a study by economists males ages 16-24, each 10-percent increase in a federal or state minimum wage has decreased employment by 2.5 percent. For in this group, each 10-percent increase in the minimum wage has decreased employment by 6.5 percent. These age groups are disproportionally affected by increases in the minimum wage due to the fact that they are more likely to have part-time jobs, which often pay at or slightly above the minimum wage. Five states (California, Illinois, Nevada, Oregon and Washington) have some of the highest minimum wages in the country but also face unemployment rates well above the national aver age. Of course, correlation does not imply causation, but from a logical standpoint, it makes sense. If the government wants to help shoe producers, it wouldnt mandate that shoe producers increase the price of shoes. This is a silly notion because the price of shoes is determined by the equilibrium between supply (the quantity of shoes supplied and the price that shoe producers wish to sell) and demand (the quantity of shoes demanded with the price the consumers wish to pay for shoes.) Yet somehow, the government believes that in order to help laborers, it can defy this economic rule. Supply and demand for labor works the same way it does for shoes. Instead, in this instance, the labor offered is the supply and the price is a wage. Increasing the minimum wage increases the price of labor and results in a surplus labor supply because businesses adjust their hiring habits accordingly. Either they stop hiring altogether or cut some low-productivity workers to make up for the increase in labor costs. While Rep. Stearns sounds well-intentioned with this policy, higher unemployment among workers with disabilities could be an unintended consequence like the problems facing younger workers. For workers with disabilities making less than minimum wage, employers faced with tight budgets could decide to eliminate these jobs altogether. This will not affect everyone, as many of these workers make more than the minimum wage. But those who currently make below the minimum could go from having a low income to no income. Which is worse?We should appreciate those holiday mealsI spend an awful large amount of time looking at food blogs. Like, a whole lot of time. If you looked at my Google Reader feed, its pretty much mostly food blogs at this point. food envy. Week after week, these blogs are updated with delicious-looking dishes that I could never hope to achieve or an oven. Thanks a lot, dorm life. These bloggers somehow get their hands on some of the best ingredients available the ones in Whole Foods that are always outside of my price range. Needless to say, it got me thinking. Why are the healthy and organic ingredients or prodpesticides used in their production, so it should cost less for us not to poison ourselves. Its not fair that the cheapest fruits and vegetables are priced that way because of the methods of production. Id much rather have a large organic apple than a puny processed one, but for some reason Im supposed to pay much more because of that. Does that seem right or fair? I hope some stores are catching on to the idea that organic doesnt have to be so overly priced to be worth selling. I hope organic will become the new norm for produce. It just doesnt seem necessary to make the pensive. So here I am, complaining about having too many food options and prices when some people in this world have much more serious food problems to deal with. I still believe there has to be a way to reduce waste while simultaneously boosting either the production of food in other countries or increasing their imports of food. Just like the wealth gap here in the United States, there is a food gap between us and the rest of the world. For that matter, theres still a fairly large food gap within our own country. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, in 2009 the U.S. produced about 34 million tons of food waste, with 33 million tons being thrown away that year. Not only are we selling the best food at the highest prices, but were also throwing away an amazing amount of food. To me, it seems that we are not living sustainably. Im not going to try to force-feed hippie rhetoric down your throats. Theres just something wrong with the American mindset. Were trained from birth to throw away absolutely everything. On average, a baby will use between 2,000 and 3,000 ing to KidsGrowth.com. The new iPhone 4S sold about 4 million units in the from a need to be the best. Being the best must mean having the most of the highest-priced items, whether we use them or not. remember the gaps in our community. Support local producers whenever you can. If you make a lot of food during the holidays, then youd better eat all of it. Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays. Sami Mainletters@alligator.org

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The AOL Instant Messenger was the direct form of communication back in the days of dial-up Internet. It was the only way to talk to our friends and elementary crushes without being heard on the house phone. As we matured and went on to middle school and high school, social networking evolved with us. The mirror self-portrait via hand-held camera was born, and the world of MySpace was the only place to be seen. If you didnt have the right pictures, the best quotes or the coolest celebritys photo under the role models section, you were a loser. MySpace was a gateway drug into the world of social media. Toward the end of high school, when we became wiser and too mature for MySpace, the Facebook era began. It is not news that Facebook has taken over the world. With more than 800 million users today, Facebook has become a tool for both social and professional networking. Despite that, Facebook is past its prime. Twitter, although it has been around since 2006, will soon be the tool to use. The CEO of Twitter, Dick Costolo, reported in September that more than 100 million users are now active on Twitter. Still 75 percent less than Facebook, Twitter will soon become the new Facebook, and Facebook will become the new MySpace. According to Mashable Social Media, there are 230 million tweets a day and 8,900 tweets per second. Unlike Facebook, Twitter gives people direct access to celebrities. While not everyone is obsessed with following a certain famous persons every move, millions of people are. (Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian and Barack Obama) tweet daily on their whereabouts and appearances. This gives more than 11 million fans desperately desired communication in 140 characters or fewer. If you own the iPhone, a Twitter account is coming your way shortly. The 200 million-plus people who own iPhones, according to CNN, will be forced to share via Twitter if they have a habit of commonly posting photos, videos and links. The iOS 5 software, released in early October, includes Twitter integration. After taking a picture, listening to a song or using any of the iPhone features, a Twitter button is ready to be tapped for instant upload. Facebook, available for download on any iPhone, will competition Twitter is bringing. With Apple endorsing it, thers no doubt that Twitters popularity will increase. We have been through a lot with Facebook, but sadly its time has ended. Soon liking comments and stalking proBecoming obsessed with Twitter will not be as dangerous as Facebook. Although there are still ways to waste hours scrolling through the site, Twitter is a more condensed, savvy way to social network. If you arent quite ready to say goodbye to Facebook, treat it like a Band-Aid. Deactivate tweet. Carolina Nachazel is a columnist for the Arizona Daily Wildcat at the University of Arizona.

But all is well if one takes notice of spring break travel advisories, right? Unfortunately, Houston happens to be a breeding ground for Mexican drug cartels, which have been more than successful in establishing narcotic rings within the Harris county area. Although the dangers of Mexicos drug cartels appear to remain outside the Texas border, it is only a matter of time before innocent bystanders get Attempts to eradicate the supremacy of drug cartels in Mexico have been futile. Many local police forces in Mexico have either succumbed to the power of local crime syndicates or have been paid off to turn a blind eye to criminal activity. More recently, drug cartels have even tracked down and decapitated Internet users posting coverage or criticism online that defaces their authority. Mexico is now listed as the second most dangerous country for journalists, according to Reporters Without Borders. Houston has been a hub for drug and human trafcrime organizations for decades. We currently have one of the largest deposits of Los Zetas membership in the nation, a fact commonly accepted by Houston police. To the dismay of local law enforcement, Mexican drug cartels have taken advantage of street-level gangs in Houston by implementing them in local operations.

Earlier this year, Houston mourned the loss of a Sugar Land-area teen named Elisabeth Mandala, who was brutally beaten to death in Mexico on what was later discovered to be a botched trip linked to the smuggling that children as young as 12 have assisted in the transportation of marijuana. Less likely to be suspected by cops, they are coined by cartels as the expendable and are typically lured in through a small amount of money. ing within our citys border, the Houston Police Department has yet to actually address the obvious issue at hand.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSST. LOUIS The war on methamphetamine has gotten some support from Congress millions of dollars to clean up the toxic waste generated by clandestine labs. President Barack Obama signed a wideranging appropriations bill Friday that included the restoration of $12.5 million for meth lab cleanup. Its an awesome thing, said Tommy Farmer, state meth task force coordinator for Tennessee, the state that led the nation in the number of meth labs in 2010. It keeps us in The measure restores funding lost in February, when federal meth lab cleanup money through the Community Oriented Policing Services program ran out and was not renewed. The program provided $19.2 million for meth lab cleanup in 2010. That was devastating for some areas of the country hit hard by meth. An Associated Press investigation in August found that without federal cleanup money, many local police and sheriffs departments were far less likely to seek out meth labs they couldnt afford to clean up. The AP investigation found that the number of labs seized dropped sharply in states that relied heavily on federal funding for cleanup: down 32 percent through mid-year in Tennessee, 33 percent in Arkansas, 35 per cent in Michigan and 62 percent in Alabama. Experts in those states said it wasnt because meth use was on the decline. Without federal money, the burden for cleanup fell to the city or county where the meth lab was found, and in an era of dwindling local revenues, agencies simply couldnt afford the cleanup. Police werent turning a blind eye to meth but stopped sending agents undercover, conducting door-to-door investigations and setting up stakeouts aimed at catching methmakers, experts said. The words I used were they were less proactive, Farmer said. Lawmakers from both parties lauded the restoration of the cleanup money. U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-Miss., said meth abuse destroys communities, tearing families apart and devastating our environment with every pound of meth producHe said he advocates a response to meth abuse that leverages federal, state and local resources to tackle all aspects of the problem, from research, education and prevention to law enforcement, treatment and remediation. A spokesman for U.S. Rep. Scott DesJar lais, R-Tenn., said restoration of the meth cleanup money was a positive from the appropriations bill, even as DesJarlais opposed the spending measure overall. The congressman understands how serious of an issue meth production is in the state of Tennessee and remains committed to ensuring that law enforcement is provided with the necessary resources to safely and Jameson, a spokesman for DesJarlais. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, noted that his state had 239 meth lab seizures in 2010. For many cities and towns, clamping down on meth labs has been like playing Whack-aMole as soon as one disappears, another one pops up, he said. Im glad that federal funding for meth lab cleanup has been restored. Our communities cant afford to leave dangerous meth labs unattended to. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2011AP Photo NA TIONALLawmakers restore $12.5M in meth lab cleanup funds THE STUDIO HAS BEEN FEATURED ON THE TODAY SHOW. JAVIER EDWARDSAlligator Contributing WriterFracture, a local glass-print studio featured on the Today Show, plans to relocate to downtown Gainesville this January. The new facility will be directly in front of UFs recently built Innovation Hub at 110 SW Sixth St. Fracture specializes in printing digital photography for photo decor. Instead of printing photos on glossyor matte-style paper and framing the photos in a picture frame, Fracture images are printed directly onto a one-piece glass frame. The goal of the company is to eventually make Fracture images the size of desks, windows and even doors, said Abhi Lokesh, a UF alumnus and Fractures co-founder and CEO. The new space will be about 5,300 square feet, according to the website of Front Street, the real estate group that negotiated the lease. Were moving because were scaling up all our new equipment, and our team growth is outpacing the space we have in the current facility, Lokesh said. The company is currently housed at 1901 NW 67th Place, Suite A, in Gainesville.Glass-print studio moving to downtown THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Congress super committee conceded defeat Monday in its quest to conquer a government debt that stands at a staggering $15 trillion, unable to overcome deep and enduring political divisions over taxes and spending. Stock prices plummeted at home and across debt-scarred Europe as the panel ended its brief, secretive existence without an agreement. Republicans blame, maneuvering for political advantage in advance of 2012 elections less than a year away. The impasse underscored grave doubts about Washingtons political will to make tough decisions and left a cloud of uncertainty over the U.S. economy at the same time that Greece, Italy, Spain and other European countries are reeling from a spreading debt crisis and recession worries. Lawmakers of both parties agreed action in Congress was still required, somehow, and soon. Despite our inability to bridge the end this process united in our belief dressed and that we cannot leave it for the next generation to solve, the panels two co-chairs, Sen. Patty Murray, DWash., and Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Tex., said in a statement. They added it was not possible to present any bipartisan agreement, omitting any reference to the goal of $1.2 trillion in cuts over a decade that had been viewed as a minimum for success. President Barack Obama criticized by Republicans for keeping the committee at arms length said refusal by the GOP to raise taxes on the wealthy as part of a deal that also cut social programs was the main stumbling block. They simply will not budge from that negotiating position, he said. Obama pledged to veto any attempt by lawmakers to repeal a requirement for $1 trillion in automatic spending cuts that are to be triggered by the supercommittees failure to reach a compromise, unless Congress approves an alternative approach. Those cuts are designed to fall evenly on the military and domestic government programs beginning in 2013, and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta as well as lawmakers in both parties have warned the impact on the Pentagon could be devastating. In my four decades involved with public service, I have never been more concerned about the ability of Congress to forge commonsense solutions to the nations pressing problems, Panetta, a former House budget committee chairman, said in a statement. The half-trillion dollars in additional cuts demanded by sequester would lead to a hollow force incapable of sustaining the missions it is assigned, he said. In reality, it is unclear if any of those reductions will ever take effect, since next years presidential and congressional elections have the potential to alter the political landscape before then. The brief written statement from Murray and Hensarling was immediately followed by a hail of recriminations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Republicans had never found the courage to ignore the tea par ty extremists and never came close to meeting us halfway. But Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who authored a GOP offer during the talks, said, Unfortunately, our Democratic colleagues refused to agree to any meanlion in job-crushing tax increases. Said Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, a GOP presidential hopeful, Its amazing to what lengths he (Obama) will go to avoid making tough decisions. It was unlikely the outcome would materially improve Congress public standing which is already well below 20-percent approval in numerous polls. And the panels failure left lawmakers confronting a large and controver sial agenda for December, including Obamas call to extend an expiring payDemocrats had wanted to add those items and more to any compromise, and lawmakers in both parties also face a struggle to stave off a threatened 27 percent cut in payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients. cials familiar with the talks, it appeared that weeks of private negotiations did nothing to alter a fundamental divide between the two political parties. Before and during the talks, DemoMedicare, Medicaid and Social Security only if Republicans would agree to a hefty dose of higher taxes, including cancellation of Bush-era cuts at upperincome brackets. In contrast, the GOP side said spending, not revenue, was the cause of the and insisted the tax cuts approved in the previous decade be made permanent.Obama

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Womens Hoops Coach Amanda Butler wants the Gators to be more consistent on the boards, including getting the guards more involved in rebounding. See story, page 9. Mark Parrish and the Florida mens cross country team at the NCAA Championship. See story, page 9. TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterFlorida coach Will Muschamp was pleased with how his team against Furman on Saturday. However, he wasnt at all pleased with the teams perfor mance that led to that 15-point hole. Defense was totally unacceptable, Muschamp said Monday. Tackling was poor, leverage with the ball, lack of communication in some areas, couple of blown situations for touchdowns just totally unacceptable. Floridas defense was gashed early, as it allowed Furman to gain 194 yards on 16 plays through the Gators once again struggled to stop the run, allowing 233 yards and two touchdowns on the ground to the Paladins. Florida was also burned by Furmans Wing-T offense early, as well as on a trick play in the While Muschamp said after the game it was a matter of eyecontrol issues on defense, Monday he said he was disappointed with the way many of his players approached the game. Weve got some young guys that think youre going to roll your hat out there and win games, and thats not the way it works, Muschamp said. Regardless of your opponent, you have to prepare all the time, so we let them know that after the game, during the game and then this morning. Thats not going to be tolerated. Injury report: Muschamp JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff WriterTAMPA Before leaving Gainesville, Kenny Boynton purposefully stayed late in the gym to keep his shooting touch fresh. Though he rarely has taken extra shots in the past, he had never started a season this hot from three, and he wanted it to continue. But as Florida warmed up in a St. Pete Times Forum more known for hosting hockey games, Boynton saw his shots clang off the rim and worried that he was in store for a cold night. I told myself, just in my head before the game, I said, I hope some luck goes my way because I didnt have it during the shootaround, he said. Less than a minute into No. 10 Floridas (3-1) neutral-site matchup against Wright State his game-high six 3-pointers to help propel the Gators to a 7865 win. In 33 minutes on the court, Boynton made half of UFs threes and scored 22 points as fellow starters Erving Walker and Brad Beal combined to shoot 2 for 11 from behind the arc. His extra work has paid off in a pair of 20-plus-point games and a team-leading 19 points per game this season. Last year, Id probably have a good shooting day and just go to practice and take a day off and not shoot after, Boynton said. Even with Boynton leading a 44 percent shooting charge from three, coach Billy Donovan was not always happy with the Gators shot selection. Florida the second half and allowed Wright State to creep within single digits twice. The encouraging part of some of our 3-point shooting right now is at least tonight Erik knocked down a couple threes, but Erving and Brad Beal did not shoot the ball particularly well, Donovan said. The Gators were also thinned in their front line for the second game in a row when sophomore after being poked in the eye by a Raiders defender. Young sat the last minute of the opening half and didnt re-enter until 10:53 left in the second. blurred vision in the locker room, but before he went out there he felt like he was getting better, Donovan said. Any time you good player it always has an effect on your team. Florida was fouled four times AP PhotoFlorida junior guard Kenny Boynton scored 22 points Monday off a game-high six 3-pointers in a 78-65 win against Wright State. Boyntons hot hand leads FloridaSEE HOOPS PA GE 16Muschamp not happy with defensive effortSEE FOOTBALL, PA GE 16END OF GREGULATIONBilly Donovan is facing an identity crisis. He wants Florida to be a team that grinds out baskets in the low post and can consistently throw it inside to sophomore center Patric Young and junior for ward Erik Murphy. The problem is, Young and Murphy arent true back-to-thebasket scorers, and Floridas roster is built to do two things: run and gun. The alternative is to keep forcing it inside to Young for his signature awkward baby hook/shotput, the best move in a low-post say the least. Donovan is a smart man. He wants what he wants for a reason. So far this season, 43.4 per cent of the Gators attempts have been from three, and recent history has shown that number to be unsustainable. During the past not one of the 20 Final Four teams shot threepointers at such an outrageous rate. The only one that was close was last years VCU team, at 41.2 percent. In fact, 12 of those 20 teams were at 33 percent or lower. Although the Gators have taken a high volume of 3-point shots, its not at all like they have abandoned the paint. In fact, the key to getting so many open looks against Wright State was precisely the opposite. Guards driving the lane or throwing it inside to Young and Murphy created the majority of UFs open looks from Built to shoot, Gators facing no other choiceSEE GREG, PA GE 16 Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca UF beat Wright State by 13 The encouraging part of some of our 3-point shooting right now is at least tonight Erik knocked down a couple threes but Erv ing and Brad Beal did not shoot the ball particularly well.Billy DonovanUF basketball coachQuotableYou seen the market up there?

Guard Kenny Boynton, who hit 6 of 9 threes against Wright State on Monday, said he stills fears that UF could have the occasional off night. ing threats, its hard to believe the whole roster could go cold at once. And, if it does, Boynton said the Gators can overcome that through rebounding. And heres the thing: Donovan cant expect Florida to be something its not. Say you want a nice, shiny new car. You know the make that has been good to you in the past and just want to pick up the latest model. Then, somebody turns around and buys you a private jet. Just because you wanted a car, youre not going to simply drive your shiny new jet around. You man. Donovan wanted to build a car, but between junior guard Mike Rosarios transfer and the recruitment of freshman guard Brad Beal to a roster that already had three quality options in the backcourt, he has built himself a jet.

Offensive lineman Dan Wenger (ankle) and linebacker Lerentee McCray (shoulder) are expected to return to practice today.
