BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterFacebook warned its users Friday to refrain from giving login information during job interviews after hearing that some employers were asking interviewees to give them access to private information. It is legal to ask for Facebook login information, said Lyrissa Lidsky, professor at Levin College of Law. She said giving the information isnt the best idea, though. The consent is economic coercion, in a sense, Lidsky said. It is tough to say no to an interviewer, she said, especially in a tough economy. A lot of things we consent to we consent to because of social pressures, she said. No UF employers ask students for their Facebook login information, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. Lidsky said problems with terms of service like this can negatively affect a company. She said she suggests only posting what you would want to explain to an interviewer, whether they ask or not. It would really change the nature of Facebook if all users had to assume at all times any future employer could use it, Lidsky said.

In a meeting Tuesday night, a committee decided to look into ways to bettter enforce rules regarding gameday parking, such as requiring residents who park cars in their yards to purchase a different permit from the one already required. The Community Development Committee also discussed creating more programs that encourage students to drink less. Throughout the years, residents in neighborhoods that border campus have complained of destruction of front lawns. Most of those problems are caused by drunken tailgaters, according to commissioners on the committee. The new permit probably wouldnt cost more than the current one to park in a yard, said Assistant City Manager Fred Murry. Commissioner Scherwin Henry said he didnt know if the city should take on parking and drinking issues. We are trying to solve a neighborhood problem that we as government will not be able to totally solve, he said. We cannot legislate human behavior. The committee will discuss the issue again before passing it to the City Commission.

The commission unanimously approved an agreement Tuesday morning between the county and ASO to allow the for the next six years, rather than turning the jail over to the county, but on one condition. Under the contract, which was made by Darnell and counuse reasonable efforts to reserve money to hire 34 more jail employees. If the county fails to fund the extra staff Darnell has consistently requested, she can ter minate the contract before Oct. 1, turning over control of the jail To fund the requested 34 employees, the contract states the county should spend no more than $900,000 from the upcoming budget and $900,000 from next years budget Darnell asked the commission in August 2010 for 46 more employees because she felt the jail was understaffed. Many employees were working overtime and werent getting enough time off to get additional training. At the time, Darnell estimated the cost of the extra staff to be $2 million. The commission did not approve her request. The commissioners decided to pay a criminal justice search how many employees the jail needed. The study called for 18 extra employees to increase security and oversight and another 16 employees to run new and existing jail programs. Commissioner Lee Pinkoson that many positions, especially with looming budget cuts. Darnell said she was pleased about the agreement. If they believe that only 18 additional employees are needed at the jail, then they can have it, she said. But for now, this is a huge win. Contact Adrianna Paidas at apaidas@alligator.org.Sheriffs Office to keep control of jailHEALTH KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterAllergy season has made itself known at UF, bringing pollen-covered cars, dry eyes and constant sneezing. Allergen levels in Gainesville have been very high throughout March, according to The Weather Channels online pollen almanac. The levels include low, medium, high and very high. The most active pollen type has been coming from trees, particularly oak and cedar. Records for last years pollen levels were not available on The Weather Channel website. Allergies are seasonal, said UF Student Health Care Center marketing coordinator Catherine Seemann. New plants release airborne par ticles like pollen that can react with peoples immune systems. UFs 2,000-acre campus contains thousands of trees, according to a Facilities Planning and Construction publication. It includes several for ested conservation areas, such as the Reitz Ravine Woods and Jennings Creek. History freshman Jami Lash, 19, takes allergy medication every day. Anywhere I walked on campus, the pollen just stayed with me on my clothes, in my hair, she said. Others, like 22-year-old art history senior Amanda Dearolph, are experiencing allergies but arent sure what is causing them. She said she suspects she is aller gic to pollen, which constantly coats her car. Seemann recommended students see a doctor if they dont know their allergies. It is impossible to generalize treatment because it depends on peoples unique immune systems, she said. UFs Allergy Clinic offers ongoing therapy for allergy sufferers who cant be treated by basic medication, said Health Care Center nurse Stacy Rider. The Weather Channel predicts that the tree allergen season will end in early June. Until then, students will have to brush off the pollen and keep going.Allergen levels very high this month Bivens Arm Lake AliceUniversity of FloridaNortheast ParkBivens Arm Nature Park University AvenueSouthwest 34th StreetArcher RoadSouthwest 13th Street Reitz Ravine Woods Jennings Creek Alligator Staff ... for now, this is a huge win.Sadie DarnellCounty Sheriff

Of the full-time students at 135 business schools that provided data to U.S. News, 78.8 percent had jobs within three months of graduating in 2011. UFs total placement percentage for the class of 2011 was about 80 percent, said Craig Petrus, director of Career Ser vices at UFs Hough Graduate School of more than the previous classs placement, he said. in our MBA students from our corporate partners, both on a regional level here in the Southeast and nationally, he said. Petrus said the schools career services team has been focusing on interacting with students to prepare them for getting into the job market. Advisers help students with resume writing, interview techniques and job search plans. Recruiting also contributes to the schools success. We have good relationships with the major companies within the state of Florida that tend to recruit at UF, Petrus said. Although the U.S. News story reported that on-campus recruiters are increasingly hiring MBA graduates for technology positions, UF has not seen a drastic change.

UF students, faculty and staff who are par ents can learn to use beginner-level American Sign Language in two sessions next month at Baby Gator. The deadline to register is today. on April 9 or April 11. Classes are offered at Building, across from the McKnight Brain Institute. The two one-hour sessions cost $25. Parents will learn more than 100 signs appropriate for signing with toddlers and children in kindergarten. They will also learn the fundamentals of American Sign Language and how it can enhance the childrens cognitive abilities and vocabulary. Theyre at an age when theyre ready to communicate, but they cant get the words out, Oakman said. And by using signs, the process gets a lot better. Oakman also said signing can reduce tantrums. Keri Stacey, sign language facilitator and coordinator for the program, said theres a reason for that. The children can sign more, milk or eat, and it shows them how powerful communication is, Stacey said. In 2000, the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development found young children who learn sign language speak sooner than other children. According to the study, infants who learned sign language had a vocabulary of 50 words more than the non-signing infants. Its great because there are a lot of differ ent learners, Oakman said.

Before signing a lease, Off Campus Life recommends you check the crime statistics of an area. A free service called Crime Reports is available on the Gainesville Police Departments website. Crime Reports allows you to see all reported crime in a certain area. Go to www.gainesvillepd.org, click Crime Reports on the right-hand side, and enter the address of interest to see local incident data. How do you feel? How does the environment seem? Is the place well-lit and populated, or dark and isolated? on the outside door, peepholes on exterior doors, locks for individual doors, alarm systems, etc. Ask lots of questions about the security. Is there an extra charge for a security system? What actions have been done to prevent crime from happening? to protect you and your stuff from the unexpected.Information reprinted with permission from UFs Off Campus LifeSAFETY TIPS If you are thinking about renting a house or apartment, Renters Insurance provides important coverage for both you and your possessions. A standard Renters Policy protects your personal property in case of theft or damage and may pay for temporary living expenses if your rental is damaged. It can also shield you from personal liability. Anyone who leases a house or apartment should consider this type of coverage. Talk with your family before getting your own renters policy. member and they own a home, they might be able to cover you under their homeowners policy. Some homeowner policies will cover a dependents rental property while in college. There are several types of residential insurance policies. Read your policy information carefully and ensure you have full coverage. Policies should include the following items: Floods, earthquakes and hurricanes arent on the list. If you live in an area prone to one or more of the three, youll need to buy a separate policy or a rider. In areas where hurricanes can pose a threat, you might also need to buy a separate rider to cover wind damage. Ask your insurance agent about this extra coverage. Vandalism or malicious mischief Damage by glass or safety-glazing material that is part of a building Falling objects Water-related damage from home utilities Electrical surge damage Fire or lightning Windstorm or hail Explosion Aircraft Vehicles Smoke Theft

16, STUDENT LIVING GUIDE, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012 Can I Break My Lease BecauseI am graduating? No! My roommate left? No! I cannot afford the rent? No! I need to work this summer? No! The neighborhood is unsafe? No! Under the Act, you can only terminate the lease if the landlord is materially violating your lease or the Act. You should obtain legal advice before attempting to terminate your lease. In many casment tenants.Can I Sublet My Apartment?Usually. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold consent to an assignment or sublease. The landlord may require potential replacement tenants to submit an application including a credit check. The landlord may also charge a reasonable sublet fee even when you provide the replacement tenants. Normally you remain liable under your lease if the replacement tenants do not pay rent or damage the apartment. Some landlords will release you from the obligations of your lease. If you are being released, get it in writing.Can I Just Move Out and Forfeit My Security Deposit?No. Some tenants will walk out on a lease and receive no adverse action, while others will be pursued to the fullest extent of the law. In Gainesvilles current rental market, the odds are that you will be sued unless you supply acceptable replacement tenants. Your losses in court will not be limited to your security deposit, but will include rent for each month the apartment remains vacant during the term of your lease, plus court costs and the landlords attorneys fees.Can I use My Security Deposit for the Last Months Rent?No. Landlords can legally evict you for non-payment of rent even when your security deposit is equal to your last months rent. The purpose of the security deposit is to protect the landlord against damages to the apartment.Does the Law Require Interest Payments on Security Deposits?Landlords must hold security deposits in one of three methods. Two methods of holding the deposits require interest to be paid. The method which does not require interest payment is the one most landlords use. The landlord is required to inform you in writing how your deposit is being held, where it is held, and whether you will receive interest. If the landlord fails to give the required notice within the 30day period, he or she forfeits the right to impose a claim upon the security deposit. However, if you damaged the apartment, the landlord can sue you even when the 30-day notice is not given. Because the landlord can also get court costs and attorneys fees, you should What Steps Can I Take To Protect My Security Deposit?When you take occupancy of the apartment, complete a thorough written inventory of the apartments condition and have the landlord or an impartial witness sign the inventory. Make sure you keep a copy of the inventory. This helps protect you from the landlord claiming you caused pre-existing damage. When you move out, clean the apartment completely and thoroughly. Some landlords provide a checklist outlining the cleaning they expect you to do. Keep all your receipts for cleaning supplies and professional carpet cleaning as evidence. Before you leave, ask the landlord to inspect the apartment with you. Complete a move-out checklist and make sure the landlord signs and dates it. Use an impartial witness if the landlord is not available or refuses your request. Move-in and moveout photographs or videotape are strongly recommended in case there is a dispute.GETTING IT BACK GETTING OUT Information reprinted with permission from UFs Student Legal Services

With his team down 1-0 in the Ramsey on a frantic sprint that ended with his body, garnet cap and the ball all hitting the turf. Mike Zunino and Taylor Gushue crossed home plate toward a UF dugout that was as euphoric as it has been all season. I thought he caught it to be honest, Turgeon said. I saw it hit the ground and I was like, Wow. I was really surprised. On a night when runs were as tough to come by as a seat, the quick outburst was all No. 1 Flor ida (23-2, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) would need. After two additional runs tacked on by left 4 Seminoles (21-4, 8-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) fell by a score of 4-1.

Lidsky said problems with terms of service like this can negatively affect a company. She said she suggests only posting what you would want to explain to an interviewer, whether they ask or not.

In a meeting Tuesday night, a committee decided to look into ways to bettter enforce rules regarding gameday parking, such as requiring residents who park cars in their yards to purchase a different permit from the one already required. The Community Development Committee also discussed creating more programs that encourage students to drink less. Throughout the years, residents in neighborhoods that border campus have complained of destruction of front lawns. Most of those problems are caused by drunken tailgaters, according to commissioners on the committee. The new permit probably wouldnt cost more than the current one to park in a yard, said Assistant City Manager Fred Murry. Commissioner Scherwin Henry said he didnt know if the city should take on parking and drinking issues. We are trying to solve a neighborhood problem that we as government will not be able to totally solve, he said. We cannot legislate human behavior.

The commission unanimously approved an agreement Tuesday morning between the county and ASO to allow the for the next six years, rather than turning the jail over to the county, but on one condition. Under the contract, which was made by Darnell and counuse reasonable efforts to reserve money to hire 34 more jail employees. If the county fails to fund the extra staff Darnell has consistently requested, she can ter minate the contract before Oct. 1, turning over control of the jail To fund the requested 34 employees, the contract states the county should spend no more than $900,000 from the upcoming budget and $900,000 from next years budget Darnell asked the commission in August 2010 for 46 more employees because she felt the jail was understaffed. Many employees were working overtime and werent getting enough time off to get additional training. At the time, Darnell estimated the cost of the extra staff to be $2 million. The commission did not approve her request. The commissioners decided to pay a criminal justice search how many employees the jail needed. The study called for 18 extra employees to increase security and oversight and another 16 employees to run new and existing jail programs. Commissioner Lee Pinkoson that many positions, especially with looming budget cuts. Darnell said she was pleased about the agreement.

Allergen levels in Gainesville have been very high throughout March, according to The Weather Channels online pollen almanac. The levels include low, medium, high and very high. The most active pollen type has been coming from trees, particularly oak and cedar. Records for last years pollen levels were not available on The Weather Channel website. Allergies are seasonal, said UF Student Health Care Center marketing coordinator Catherine Seemann. New plants release airborne par ticles like pollen that can react with peoples immune systems. UFs 2,000-acre campus contains thousands of trees, according to a Facilities Planning and Construction publication. It includes several for ested conservation areas, such as the Reitz Ravine Woods and Jennings Creek. History freshman Jami Lash, 19, takes allergy medication every day. Anywhere I walked on campus, the pollen just stayed with me on my clothes, in my hair, she said. Others, like 22-year-old art history senior Amanda Dearolph, are experiencing allergies but arent sure what is causing them. She said she suspects she is aller gic to pollen, which constantly coats her car. Seemann recommended students see a doctor if they dont know their allergies. It is impossible to generalize treatment because it depends on peoples unique immune systems, she said. UFs Allergy Clinic offers ongoing therapy for allergy sufferers who cant be treated by basic medication, said Health Care Center nurse Stacy Rider.

Of the full-time students at 135 business schools that provided data to U.S. News, 78.8 percent had jobs within three months of graduating in 2011.

Petrus said the schools career services team has been focusing on interacting with students to prepare them for getting into the job market. Advisers help students with resume writing, interview techniques and job search plans. Recruiting also contributes to the schools success. We have good relationships with the major companies within the state of Florida that tend to recruit at UF, Petrus said. Although the U.S. News story reported that on-campus recruiters are increasingly hiring MBA graduates for technology positions, UF has not seen a drastic change.

The deadline to register is today. on April 9 or April 11. Classes are offered at Building, across from the McKnight Brain Institute. The two one-hour sessions cost $25. Parents will learn more than 100 signs appropriate for signing with toddlers and children in kindergarten. They will also learn the fundamentals of American Sign Language and how it can enhance the childrens cognitive abilities and vocabulary. Theyre at an age when theyre ready to communicate, but they cant get the words out, Oakman said. And by using signs, the process gets a lot better. Oakman also said signing can reduce tantrums. Keri Stacey, sign language facilitator and coordinator for the program, said theres a reason for that. The children can sign more, milk or eat, and it shows them how powerful communication is, Stacey said. In 2000, the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development found young children who learn sign language speak sooner than other children. According to the study, infants who learned sign language had a vocabulary of 50 words more than the non-signing infants. Its great because there are a lot of differ ent learners, Oakman said.

The neighborhood is unsafe? No! Under the Act, you can only terminate the lease if the landlord is materially violating your lease or the Act. You should obtain legal advice before attempting to terminate your lease. In many casment tenants.Can I Sublet My Apartment?Usually. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold consent to an assignment or sublease. The landlord may require potential replacement tenants to submit an application including a credit check. The landlord may also charge a reasonable sublet fee even when you provide the replacement tenants. Normally you remain liable under your lease if the replacement tenants do not pay rent or damage the apartment. Some landlords will release you from the obligations of your lease. If you are being released, get it in writing.Can I Just Move Out and Forfeit My Security Deposit?No. Some tenants will walk out on a lease and receive no adverse action, while others will be pursued to the fullest extent of the law. In Gainesvilles current rental market, the odds are that you will be sued unless you supply acceptable replacement tenants. Your losses in court will not be limited to your security deposit, but will include rent for each month the apartment remains vacant during the term of your lease, plus court costs and the landlords attorneys fees.Can I use My Security Deposit for the Last Months Rent?No. Landlords can legally evict you for non-payment of rent even when your security deposit is equal to your last months rent. The purpose of the security deposit is to protect the landlord against damages to the apartment.Does the Law Require Interest Payments on Security Deposits?Landlords must hold security deposits in one of three methods. Two methods of holding the deposits require interest to be paid. The method which does not require interest payment is the one most landlords use. The landlord is required to inform you in writing how your deposit is being held, where it is held, and whether you will receive interest. If the landlord fails to give the required notice within the 30day period, he or she forfeits the right to impose a claim upon the security deposit. However, if you damaged the apartment, the landlord can sue you even when the 30-day notice is not given. Because the landlord can also get court costs and attorneys fees, you should What Steps Can I Take To Protect My Security Deposit?When you take occupancy of the apartment, complete a thorough written inventory of the apartments condition and have the landlord or an impartial witness sign the inventory. Make sure you keep a copy of the inventory. This helps protect you from the landlord claiming you caused pre-existing damage. When you move out, clean the apartment completely and thoroughly. Some landlords provide a checklist outlining the cleaning they expect you to do. Keep all your receipts for cleaning supplies and professional carpet cleaning as evidence. Before you leave, ask the landlord to inspect the apartment with you. Complete a move-out checklist and make sure the landlord signs and dates it. Use an impartial witness if the landlord is not available or refuses your request. Move-in and moveout photographs or videotape are strongly recommended in case there is a dispute.GETTING IT BACK GETTING OUT Information reprinted with permission from UFs Student Legal Services

Moultrie picks up award Moultrie won the USA Softballs Collegiate Player of the Week on Tuesday. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer JACKSONVILLE An unproven newcomer got the best of a heralded All-American Tuesday night. Casey Turgeon, Floridas freshman second baseman, and James Ramsey, Florida States secrossed paths in the games biggest play in front of 10,751 fans at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. With his team down 1-0 in the Ramsey on a frantic sprint that ended with his body, garnet cap and the ball all hitting the turf. Mike Zunino and Taylor Gushue crossed home plate toward a UF dugout that was as euphoric as it has been all season. I thought he caught it to be honest, Turgeon said. I saw it hit the ground and I was like, Wow. I was really surprised. On a night when runs were as tough to come by as a seat, the quick outburst was all No. 1 Flor ida (23-2, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) would need. After two additional runs tacked on by left 4 Seminoles (21-4, 8-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) fell by a score of 4-1. The victory snapped a fourgame losing streak in the series for the Gators when playing in Jacksonville and gave Florida its Florida State since 2009. We came out here and we had to do anything possible to win, driguez said. We havent won here in a few years, so it was a big-time game for us. Before the Gators were able to break through, the game was a defensive grind. Apart from a run ue, it was scoreless for 5.5 innings. A damp wind was blowing in, the temperature was dropping and the park was playing as pitcherUF starter Greg Larson had a strong 3.2-inning outing, but it was FSU right-hander Scott Sitz who made things rough early for Florida. The Gators entered the ter stranding two runners in each of the two previous innings and their only highlights had come on defense. Sophomore left-hander Daniel Gibson entered in the fourth and got out of a second-and-third, innings later, freshman righthander Johnny Magliozzi was called upon with the bases loaded pitches to register a 5-4-3 double play that ignited the Gators. situation as you can be in, so the way [Magliozzi] responded and the way he pitched, I couldnt be more proud of him, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said. From there it was all Turgeon, prominent relievers. Rodriguez and Austin once again an unstoppable duo, working three innings, out a combined four batters. like there had been in the fourth a little more, and the abrasive screams of the cream uniformclad Gators provided all the proof spectators needed. with the way we played.David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida freshman second baseman Casey Turgeon watches as his sixth-inning triple soars toward center Turgeons triple sinks Seminoles, helps clinch season seriesSPRING FOOTBALL GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer As Floridas offense sputtered to a No. 105 national ranking in yards per game last season, The unit rarely generated a strong push in the ground game, as the Gators rushing attack easy time penetrating for big stops, as Florida allowed an average of 7.39 tackles for loss per game, the ninth-most in the nation. But a new spring season has brought a fresh dose of optimism. Floridas line returns four starters to a unit that believes it enters 2012 with more toughTheyre way more physical, defensive tackle Omar Hunter said about the lines per formance in Saturdays scrimmage. Down in the red zone, they were running the ball really hard. Guys were pulling together. Harrison, right guard Jon Halapio and right assumed in 2012. started at left guard in UFs lone scrimmage so far. With so many familiar faces, the offensive line has developed stronger chemistry. A lot more unity, a lot more togetherness, Harrison said. You get used to the people youre working with. Coach Will Muschamp said the offensive line was one of two position groups along with the secondary where chemistry is most important. After a year together, Hunter said he can see an improvement in that area from this years unit. They were a little bit younger last year but I feel like theyre more together this year, Hunter said. When times get hard they pull together and say, Lets go, lets go. Finish plays. One of them false started, and getting mad what they did last year they seen. changed their body types. leviating one of his biggest weaknesses from past seasons.

A member of the 2011 U.S. Womens U-19 Team and threetime U.S. Lacrosse All-American at Northport High in New York, Gilroy tore her left ACL in the last minute of a double-overtime state championship game last June. ried, Gilroy said.

Coach Amanda OLeary said that despite the severity of the injury, she knew Gilroy would be able to make an impact this season. She has put the time and effort in, OLeary said. Other people coming off ACL injuries, if they dont put time in they are The improvement was not evident from the outset of the spring. Gilroy said she had trouble at realizing she was putting herself under too much pressure. I was too hard on myself, Gilroy said. I didnt realize that until my teammates and coaches pointed that out to me, and I started to loosen up a bit. After not scoring in the Gators impressive in the 10 games since, scoring 17 goals and notching Offensively, I think Shannon OLeary said. Shes a great tar so she can go through double teams, and she has a great stick. Were really pleased she is on our team and we dont have to defend her. Gilroys 44 draw controls are also 16 more than anyone else on the team. It starts with the draw, OLeary said. She has great height so she can draw it to her self, and when shes not drawing to herself she can pull it to our attackers, who seem to be able to come up with it. Junior transfer attacker Gabi Wiegand, a native of Bay Shore, N.Y., played against Gilroy in high school and with her at the club level. Wiegand said Gilroys effectiveness on the draw gives the attackers the ability to get Sometimes I dont even run in to get the ball [on draws], Wiegand said. Im looking to ball on her stick and it will be in our offensive end. While OLeary is pleased with what Gilroy has brought to the team so far this season, she knows that the freshman will accomplish much bigger things in the future. Shes a young lady where if you set a goal in front of her she is going to achieve it.Healthy Gilroy, Gators ready for Fresno State Shannon GilrowBrett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff
