Supervisor of Elections Stephen Davis read them shortly after midnight. The Swamp Party cheered and chanted after claiming 35 seats the majority. The Students Party claimed 14. I think that we won a majority of the seats, and thats fantastic, said Swamp Party spokesman Daniel Landesberg. One District D seat was split, as both Micaela Montero Dokser and Amit Gangrade received 413 votes. The Senate will decide who wins that seat, said UF Supreme Court Justice Matt Michel. [This] is a remarkable achievement, Students Party campaign manager Dave Bradshaw said. This year, 9,197 students cast ballots, which is an increase from the 8,271 ballots cast last Fall. Spring 2012 elections had one of the highest voter turnouts ever, with 10,644 voters. I think elections went very well, Davis said. I couldnt be happier about the turnout. The ballot also included two referendums, both of which voters opposed. Referendum questions are nonbinding and are used to gauge student opinion. About 76 percent of the 7,233 students who voted on the referendum clicked no when asked about renaming the Reitz Union after Virgil Hawkins.

I think its important that Gainesville recognize those that go out in the world and make contributions and represent our city, Lowe said. Claye said he only recently learned the day would be dedicated to him, but the news came as a welcomed surprise.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHT and AYANA STEWARTAlligator Contributing WritersBig Bird, the economy and a presidential boxing match got debate of the 2012 election cycle. Democrats and Republicans gathered across the city to listen to President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. From their respective watering holes, students and residents listened, cheered and jeered as the candidates discussed their policies and jabbed their competitor. About 150 students and residents crowded into a room Gators for Obama event. About 100 students and residents gathered at Outback TVs and munch on burgers and Bloomin Onions, hosted by the Alachua County Republican Party. bate, said Gators for Obama co-chairwoman Christina Ford, a 20-year-old economics and political science sophomore. Voters on both sides of the aisle said this election feels per sonal. For Jakeila Stringer, UF College Democrats Black Caucus chairwoman, it hits home. The 25-year-old journalism freshman credits her opportunity to attend college to the Pell grant. State Representative Dennis Baxley, a Republican, said he thinks a lot of young voters have become disillusioned with Obama, and he doesnt want to give the next generation a diminished future. The future is everything to me, he said. As the debate neared, the Republican group counted down on the evening of their 20th wedding anniversary, causing the Democratic side to swoon and the Republican side to aww. There are a lot of points I want to make tonight, but the most important one is that 20 years ago I became the luckiest man on Earth, because Michelle Obama agreed to marry me, he said. And so I just want to wish, sweetie, you, happy anniversary, and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. The debate quickly heated up as topics ping-ponged from the economy to health care to small businesses. When the debate turned to government funding, Romney said he plans to stop subsidies to Public Broadcasting Ser vice. Im going to stop the subsidy to PBS. Im going to stop other things. I like PBS. I love Big Bird, Romney said. Im not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for. Republican supporters hooted and cheered, drowning out the blaring televisions. Democrats gasped, laughed and jeered at the comment. But between jabs about Donald Trump, Obamacare and Romneys tax plan, students rallied their respective candidates side-by-side with their fellow supporters and on social media. Political science senior Rafael Escobedo, 22, watched the television screen with enthusiastic attention. He said hes been waiting for this day since May. This is my Super Bowl, he said.

LAURA HOGANAlligator Contributing WriterKittens wearing bow ties, tiny giraffes and sleepy sloths could make students more productive. A study titled The Power of Kawaii kawaii means cute in Japanese found that looking at pictures of attractive animals results in higher performance. Researchers showed Japanese university students pictures of baby animals and had them complete a variety of tasks. Factors like attention spans showed up to a 44 percent improvement from when they viewed adult dogs and cats. ings could be due to the mood cute pictures induce. Certain cognitive stimuli place people into a particular frame of mind. While the anxiety and tension sometimes caused by exams may lead to poor performance for some students, positive stimuli that reduce stress may enhance it, he said. When you see a picture of a puppy or a cute infant, then very often you feel sort of warm and fuzzy and sort of relaxed, Rowland said, and so you might go into the subsequent task in a fairly sort of relaxed state. But not all students associate looking at pictures of adorable animals with increased productivity. Zoology junior David Boyd, 20, said he sometimes encounters the pictures on websites he visits to waste time. If Im at the point where Im looking at pictures of a wombat shaking someones hand, Im not in a productive stage of the afternoon or evening, he said.Cuteness could increase focus When you see a picture of a puppy or a cute infant, then very often you feel sort of warm and fuzzy and sort of relaxed and so you might go into the subsequent task in a fairly sort of relaxed state.Neil RowlandUF psychology professor

sity says it is. The other referendum asked students whether they wanted UF to continue with the removal of independently owned newspaper racks from campus. About 60 percent of the 6,939 students who voted opposed it. I think thats an important result, Bradshaw said. I think it shows that despite what our opponents have been saying, the Alligator is an important source of news on our campus. UF students had two days to vote for 50 student senators. The Students Party nominated 48 students, and the Swamp Par ty nominated 50. Its good to see that Gators are engaged, said Student Body President Tj Villamil. Several students were incor rectly placed in District E, which includes all ZIP codes not in the other four districts, due to their addresses listed in the university registrar. While voting, students were asked three times to verify their district. If it was incorrect, they could add their correct addresses. The ZIP codes were listed on starting at noon Tuesday, Davis said. Landesberg said he hadnt seen the numbers as of press time and didnt know how incorrectly registered students affected the vote. This is the third semester using online voting and the second semester using the online system to vote based on students residential districts. As of midnight Wednesday, eight elections complaints had Party and three from the Swamp Party, said Elections Commission chairman Wes Stephens. The Elections Commission will meet today to hear them.

ANIMALS ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Contributing WriterA bald eagle under the care of the UF Small Animal Hospital was released to a rehab center Wednesday. Bacon, the 5-year-old adult male bald eagle, was admitted three weeks ago. He was in poor condition when he was found in Suwannee County. Bacon suffered bone fractures, one of which was aligned and another that required surgery to hold the bone together. To keep him calm and avoid re-injury while being examined, Bacon was given acupuncture twice to control the pain. Five acupuncture needles were used to sedate him to allow the team of vets to examine him. The needles, which were designed for human hands, were 0.1 millimeter in diameter. Dr. Justin Shmalberg, a clinical assistant professor of integrative medicine, administered the acupuncture. He freely let us manipulate the wing and place him on his back when needles were present, and he would often relax his posture during the treatment, Shmalberg wrote in an email. of Bacon receiving treatment were posted on the colleges Facebook last week, some of the viewers didnt agree with the procedure. ing.

The additions made Florida the state toughest toward child abuse, said Erin Gillespie, spokeswoman for Florida Department of Children and Families. Gillespie said the push for the new legislation is credited largely to the Pennsylvania State University abuse scandal. She said the law change requires people to report suspected abuse by any person to a child. Previously, people could only make a report if the childs parent or guardian was the suspected abuser. Child abuse is higher than we know, she said. It just hasnt been reported. The offense of refusing to report child abuse used to be a misdemeanor, but under this degree felony.

We want to make sure that we keep you as informed on the most up-to-date, top-of-the-line, stateof-the-art news as possible. Thats why we think you need to know about the latest study. Its titled The Power of Kawaii: Viewing Cute Images Promotes a Careful Behavior and Narrows Attentional Focus. Yes, it means exactly what you think it does. Welcome to the world of the Internet. Its either a dangerous Web to navigate or a wonderful world to explore. This study is the latter. It claims that people who looked at baby animals were more productive at tasks requiring focus. Do you realize what this means? It means we have an excuse. It means we can look at all the cute photos we want, all in the name of productivity. looking at a series of pictures of baby animals, then after seeMaybe the point is to take more breaks when doing work or studying for a test. The human brain probably isnt wired to work on something for an extended period of time, and cute animals are one of the best distractions. This study shows that viewing cute things improves subsequent performance in tasks that require behavioral carefulness, possibly by narrowing the breadth of attentional focus, said the studys researchers at Hiroshima University. Web browsing can actually refresh tired workers and enhance their productivity, compared to other activities such as making personal calls, texts or emails, let alone working straight through with no rest at all, said a 2011 Wall Street Journal article. People usually choose to visit only the sites that they like its like going for a coffee or snack break. Breaks of such nature are pleasurable, rejuvenating the Web surfer, wrote one Engagement study, Vivien K.G. Lim wrote in an email, according to the WSJ article. So what we gather from these two articles is that we are encouraged to browse the Internet and to look at cute pictures of baby animals, because it will help us complete the tasks that we need to get done. This doesnt mean you can blow off class and work to stay online all day. It emphasizes the importance of taking breaks. We all need a break every now and then. Thats why were running this editorial in the middle of one You deserve a break, and so do we. So, when youre done reading this, chill out and relax. Theres no need to be angry for the entire week. People are allowed to have different opinions, but lets not them out there.Healthy living needs positive reinforcementF years ago. She has taken great strides and has inspired many young people through her speeches and programs across America. But, there is one thing that needs to be tweaked. Instead preaching the start of healthy lifestyles. People, especially children, respond best to positive reinforcement. The students of Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, Kan. are proof of this. In 2010, Congress passed a law that requires high school cafeterias to serve meals containing 750 to 850 calories. They must also serve twice the amount of vegetables and fruits and reduce portions of proteins and carbohydrates. This made for some not-so-happy teenagers. So, they responded with a parody of Funs We are Young, that proclaims, We are Hungry. The latest YouTube sensation has more than half a million views. People have never responded well to limits placed on them. No one likes to be told what to do, especially when it should be a personal choice. For example, the government gave in when it could no longer control the people after 13 years of Prohibition. Students who eat fried food and sweets for lunch are no different from the grown men who drank alcohol every day before Prohibition. The outcome will ultimately be the same, as history always repeats itself. including children, can have a variety of underlying health problems that are affected by eating behaviors. Obese people are not the only ones who have diabetes and cardiovascular problems. If the ultimate goal is to end childhood obesity, then society loses sight of what a healthy lifestyle is all about. Crash diets, rigorous workouts and fat-diminishing surgeries all give the illusion of health but are quite contrary to that. For many American children, a school lunch is their only meal in a day. Its not right to limit what they are allowed to place on their trays as they proceed through the lunch line. The government has no way to measure how empty their stomachs are. Obesity suggests a person must lose a set amount of weight to fall into a normal weight range. This insinuates that obesity is a stead of allowing people to be comfortable with their own bodies. By limiting food intake, the government is judging people who fall into the obese weight range. As mentioned before, the calorie law also placed restraints on the amount of protein and carbohydrates for students in the lunchroom. All food is good in moderation. It would prove more benthem smaller portions for no reason. Children, especially high school students, need a large amount of calories each day. They are studying, playing and doing many other things that burn a large amount of calories. Unlike adults, who are no longer growing, children need more nutrients to fuel their bodies. Placing a limitation on calories gives children the impression that the amount of calories they consume in a day is and eating all foods in moderation is the key to achieving a healthy lifestyle. The word obese should never be used to describe a child, because he or she is still growing. A child needs a wellbalanced diet. Ultimately, placing a maximum amount of calories allowed per meal in school cafeterias will never be a longterm solution to obesity if the students are not taught how to make healthy choices.

CHABELI HERRERAAvenue Contributing WriterNothing says Halloween like pig blood, tacky 1970s prom-wear and telekinetic powers. This Halloween season, you might even get a laugh out of it. Carrie, a comedy by Erik Jackson based on the novel by Stephen King, promises a bloody good time to audiences looking for a twist on the classic story. The show begins Oct. 12 at the Hippodrome State Theatre, 25 SE Second Place, and will run through Nov. 4. Discount previews will be Oct. 10 and 11. Regular tickets are $35 and student tickets are $15. Carrie will show eight times a week. podromes website, www.thehipp.org. The story revolves around social outcast Carrie White, a victim of bullying at school, and her overtly religious mother at home. prom when things take a bloody turn, and she decides to take revenge on everyone via her telekinetic abilities. Carrie will take the audience in a new direction, poking fun at the outlandish elements of the story. This rendition of Carrie is light hearted, fun, campy, quirky, said Jessica Kreitzer, assistant costume designer for the production. The younger actors, the time period and the costumes give it a lighter feel, she said. Director Lauren Caldwell said she expects the play to draw a diverse crowd, from high school students to adults who saw the When I was a kid, that movie came out, so I remember it. So I think its going to appeal to people my age who remember the to come and say, How in the world are they going to put that on stage? Caldwell said. I think it has a very wide appeal to different ages. Chelsea Sorenson, a senior acting major who plays the lead role, Carrie, said she expects the student audience to be drawn to the show. I mean, the amount of times we drop the F-bomb is crazy, she said. Its a lot of really, really crude humor, so I feel its some thing a younger audience will really enjoy. The show has not come without its challenges, though. For one, there is the pig blood, which deTrying not to douse everyone on stage has been the biggest challenge, Sorenson said. In the costume department, costume designer Marilyn Wall said she has been trying several different mixes for the blood. The clothes had to be made to resist large amounts of faux blood every night, which can be cleaned quickly for the next show, Wall said. Caldwell said some things have been built and rigged for the production, but it enjoyable for the audience. Another major challenge has been creating comedy in the bullying aspects of the story. between its believable that she really is upset, but its not so bad that people forget to laugh, Sorenson said. Even if it is outrageous, its hard not to feel bad for Carrie, she said. Despite the humor, Sorenson said she hopes audiences will take something away from the play. I really think the story lends itself to a lesson that whole be careful who you mess with, she said. One day you are going to mess with the wrong person. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY OCTOBER 4, 2012Elise Giordano / AlligatorJosh Allen, 27, (left) and Nelson Isaac, 41, (right) work on lighting for the upcoming show Carrie at the Hippodrome State Theatre on Monday. movies BAKR SALIQAvenue WriterLost in an endlessly growing queue and buried beneath thousands of rows of titles, there are a In the Loop (2009) Directed by Armando Iannucci, Armando Iannucci is the king of political satire. The British director and writer for Veep and In the Thick of It, pulls no punches when illustrating an absurd group Loop. In the Loop is set before the United States and United Kingstarts out with the two countries keeping a tight lid on their desires to go to war. However, not everyone in the government is as keen to go to war. After the British secretary of state for international development, Simon Foster (played by Tom Hollander of Pirates of the Caribbean), talks on the radio about the impossibility of a war in the future, politicians and bureaucrats in the U.S. and the U.K. scramble to downplay his statements, manipulating him and his words to build a case against war. Iannucci portrays the politics of In the Loop in a vulgar and crass fashion. It has ultracombative and foul-mouthed char acters like the director of commu nications for the prime minister, Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi of The Thick of It), and Lt. Gen. Miller, U.S. senior military assistant to the secretary of defense nos). with less-than-prestigious titles like U.S. assistant secretary of state for diplomacy adds a layer of absurdity to the characters stohardly reaches outside whichever room they are in, although they act as though it can reach the highest government levels. Fast-paced and witty, this movof political satire, the HBO series Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, or black comedies in general, In the Loop is a perfect choice.

They could ignore you, and then you just assume theyre an a-hole, or they could tell you to your face that they dont want to hookup anymore and feel like an a-hole. Id choose the option with less work. Also, being honest is really hard. As crappy as it is, its easier to avoid the whole chore. Its not just guys, though. Girls have done this to guys plenty of times. Being honest is hard. Thats why sh*t-talking is so easy. Dear Friend, I can tell youve already Googled it. Take out the garbage more often or remove the dead body from your basement. But dont think of them as a something to get rid of. Think of them as little people who are try ing to get close to your face because they want to tell you secrets. Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, The problem is that students are unaware of the sound a bike makes. All you can do is yell Behind you! People should always keep one earphone out to listen for this. Anyone who doesnt deserves to get salmoned. Whats sal moning?

Six injured Gators expected to be ready for Saturdays gamefrom an experience standpoint, where hes played the position and been in it. Two, from an ability to cover. Hes a guy that we cer tainly match up well when we do our nickel stuff, and hes a good blitzer. Muschamp also said that defensive end Dominique Easley, tight end Jordan Reed and Trey Burton will be active on Saturday. Reed left Floridas 38-0 win against Kentucky on Sept. 22 with a likely concussion. Burton sat out with back spasms, while Easley missed the game due to swelling in his surgically repaired left knee. He needed more time to come back, Quinn said of Easley. Hes ready to go, and Im anxious to get him back out there. Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd also left the Gators victory against the Wildcats after suffering a shoulder injury. Floyd practiced during the bye week, and Quinn said on Wednesday that Floyd is expected to play on Saturday. On Tuesday, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said offensive tackle Chaz Green should be available after missing the past two games with an ankle injury. Cornerback Cody Riggs and offensive tackle Matt Patchan will be out on Saturday, Muschamp said. Riggs suffered a fracture in his foot against the Aggies, and Patchan has yet to play this season due to a pectoral strain. Mad Hatter: Les Miles has not been shy about using tricks against Florida in recent years. Theyve shown theyre willing to take chances, Quinn said. Thats a style they have and one certainly theyve earned by the success theyve had. During LSUs 41-11 win against UF in 2011, Tigers punter Brad Wing scored a 52yard touchdown on a fake punt before the play was called back due to an illegal celebration. In 2010, the Tigers trailed the Gators 29-26 late in the fourth quarter when they lined up than attempting the kick, holder Derek Helton threw a no-look pitch over his head to kicker Josh Jasper, who ran 5 yards for the ning touchdown later in the drive. Quinn said the deception shouldnt be an issue if each player keeps his assignment. You just have to be on it in terms of your communication and your job, keeping your eyes in the right spot, Quinn said. Ignoring the past: Following last years loss to LSU, Floridas season continued its downward spiral. UF dropped consecutive games against Auburn and Georgia, extending its losing streak to four. I feel like last year we were down on our selves, how we played, how we performed, guard Jon Halapio said. We just dont want to feel like that ever again. While the blowout defeat may be tough to forget, Halapio said Florida isnt letting the memory negatively affect its preparation this time around. Everybody has that mentality that its Round 2 for everybody that we played last year. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. NOTES, from page 14THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 everybody. Against the likes of Alabama and LSU, relying on that strategy was stupid. However, the Gators have a legitimate ground game in 2012 led by north-south runner Mike Gillislee and a bigger offensive line. Gillislee has been clutch for Florida this season and has proven he is more than capable of Coaches limited Gillislee to 13 carries against Kentucky, and the DeLand native got some much-needed rest during the bye week. He should be ready to carry the offensive load on Saturday. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Florida will not monitor Gillislees carries, and I applaud that strategy. The Gators should give Gilly the rock at least 20 times on Saturday. Hes 22, hes got good youth in him, Pease said. Look at guys in the NFL. If a guy wants to play at the next level, he better be able to handle it 25 times a game. Mike can handle that. Mike is good at avoiding people. Hes not taking direct hits. He knows how to protect himself, like any good running back. The Tigers rank third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing defense, but the best ground attack they have faced this season is North Texas 63rd-ranked unit. LSU has talent along its defensive front seven. But heading into Game 6, the group is largely untested in 2012. With the exception of leading rusher Kenny Hilliard, the Tigers are hurting on the teamer Alex Hurst switched from right to left tackle to replace All-SEC second-teamer Chris Faulk, who is out for the season with a knee injury. Fullback J.C. Copeland will play with a left leg injury, and running back Spencer Ware will play with a shoulder injury. Alfred Blue is likely out for the season with a knee injury. LSU, which relies on power running, will face its toughest defensive test so far shorthanded, with banged-up pieces in its ground game. The return of Jelani Jenkins from a right thumb injury only bolsters Floridas unit, contributions of freshmen linebackers Dante Fowler Jr. and Antonio Morrison. Also, the Gators are hungry for turnovers, Towson last weekend. Florida may not knock off LSU this weekend, but an inability to run the ball and control the clock will not be the Gators downfall. Muschamp constantly emphasizes controlling the line of scrimmage, and Florida has the personnel and the experience to win ugly. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org.Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffDefensive end Dominique Easley rushes the passer during Floridas 27-14 win against Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffRunning back Mike Gillislee receives a handoff during Floridas 38-0 win against Kentucky on Sept. 22 in The Swamp. Gillislee ran for 56 yards on 13 carries. JOE, from page 14 Every offensive lineman on the roster, except two freshmen, weighs 300 pounds or more. Hunter is Floridas heaviest starting defensive lineman at 313 pounds. [The] offensive line is massive, UF coach Will Muschamp said of LSU. Theyre huge. They come off and mash it. After the Tigers controlled the football for more than 24 minutes in the second half of last years 30-point win in Baton Rouge, the Gators know physicality will be key on Saturday. Hunter certainly factors into that. Omar, I think, is going to have a real great game, redshirt senior Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray said. Hes going to come out and surprise a lot of people because were going to mage. Said junior right guard Jon Halapio: He has more urgency to him. You can see him leading the D-line. You can in practice. Omar Hunter: He loves to hit. He loves hitting drills. He loves the combo drills. He loves all of that.
