Jason Cole, an adjunct UF journalism professor, invited his sports reporting class to observe the media day with about 2,000 reporters from news outlets like ESPN, NFL. com and CBS. Its probably the biggest setting of media at one place at one time, he said. Cole, who is also a reporter for Yahoo News, was able to get press passes for his students. He said students will get a tour of the media center, Radio Row a gathering space for all attending radio stations and have guest lecturers from radio, TV and online news outlets. They would be seen but not heard, he said. Media day starts at about 9 a.m. today. Cole, who is not attending the event, said he would have class in the afternoon. This is the second time Cole has offered to take his class to media day. In 2010, he invited his students to the Super Bowl when it was hosted in Miami. Cole said he invites his students when Super Bowls are hosted near Gainesville. He said each student must make his or her own transportation plans but that he would cover the cost for a hotel with Marriott reward points. Im pretty parental when it comes to that, he said. UF journalism junior Caitlin Hartley, 20, said she carpooled with other students Monday. Not a lot of students would get this because were lucky to have a teacher like Jason who covers the NFL, Hartley said.

Todd Kelly received a call about an accident on Interstate 75 in Paynes Prairie State Park. Even a year later, he remembers the scene vividly. through the thick fog. The smell of deployed airbags, gasoline and smoke hanging in the air. The lines of wrecked vehicles stretching from one side of the prairie to the other. It seemed to never end, Kelly said. The farther I went in, the worse it got. On the afternoon of Jan. 28, 2012, smoke from a Paynes U.S. 441 and I-75. Overnight, the smoke swirled with the early morning fog, causing the Florida Highway Patrol to close the roads after responding to several accidents due to drivers limited visibility. The FHP reopened the roads a few hours later. But the crashes continued. Shortly after 4 a.m., 911 calls started to pour into FHP from I-75, according to Alligator archives. with a multi-car accident that eventually left 11 people dead and more than a dozen in the hospital, according to archives. Today marks the one-year anniversary of the I-75 crash, an event that is considered to be one of the deadliest car accidents in the history of North Central Florida. In the year following the crash, the Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Forest Services and the FHP collaborated to make driving safer in the event that dense fog or smoke envelops the roads along Paynes Prairie. The city installed cameras along I-75 to monitor the trafthe road to the Gainesville City said FDOT spokeswoman Gina Busscher.

Deputies arrested Benjamin Wade Parker, Lance Thomas Kriete and Richard Lee Ashcraft III on felony charges, according to ASO arrest reports. The sting was part of Operation Nightlight, an undercover online sex sting operation that started Thursday and ended Sunday morning, said ASO spokesman Lt. Todd Kelly. Kriete, 20, of 13 Fraternity Row, responded Friday night to an online ad, where he started talking to who he thought was the father of a 14-year-old girl. During the conversation, Kriete allegedly wrote, id love to help her explore her body and what to do with older guys. He later said to the father, what if I told you id love to f--the s--out of her? according to the report. The next night, Kriete drove to meet the girl and was arrested by deputies. Deputies booked Kriete into the Alachua County Jail at 3:19 a.m. Sunday on a $75,000 bond.

ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterThe Academy-Award-nomibook is a contender for the best movie of the year. But some critics wonder how accurately it portrays mental illness. Alvin Lawrence, licensed psychologist at the Counseling and Wellness Center, said movies need entertainment value so experiences become more dramatic and sympThe movie, which was released in December, focuses on Bradley Coopers character, Pat, who was recently discharged from a mental hospital. His love interest, Tiffany, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is battling her own demons. Although their portrayals have earned best actor nominations and praise for being realistic, the feelgood romantic ending left audiences chuckling at the drama. For the director to condense someones everyday life into an hour and a half, audiences can misunderstand that day-to-day life doesnt happen that quickly, Lawrence said. said. But depending on the way it is presented, movies have as much potential to help as to harm. He has not seen Silver Linings Playbook but said in any Hollywood portrayal of mental illness audiences have to be mindful that someone may do something that is funny, but there is something that runs deeper underneath. We laugh when we are uncomfortable, he said. Lawrence said challenges that characters face in movies can be found funny when they are taken out of context. But put in context, that is someones life, he said. They arent deciding to be manic in the middle of the night. Some critics felt like the romanheal mental illness. Its possible, but thats not what we see, Lawrence said. Its not to say that someone cant manage their symptoms without medication or intensive treatment. There are people who do that. But that may not be the norm. Taylor Scott, a 19-year-old UF nursing freshman, said her friend told her it was a comedy, but she was surprised with how serious some parts of the movie were. Although Silver Linings Playbook was met with cinematic success, Lawrence said movies that portray mental illness could or insulted. But in the end, you have to recognize its entertainment and take it with a grain of salt, he said. Contact Alexa Volland at avolland@alligator.org.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 Vehicle detectors and TV cameras monitor the highway nowsaid, will happen early next year when the FDOT begins a $3 million project that will help keep motorists safe while driving with low visibility. The project consists of the installation of three changeable message signs along the Micanopy and Gainesville corridor of I-75, Busscher said. Vehicle detectors that measure speeds to see if theres a problem will be installed on the same poles as the current TV cameras. Sensors will also measure visibility on the road. By the time the project is completed, she said, the detectors and sensors will be integrated into the 511 system, which drivers can call to said additional cameras will be installed along U.S. 441. FHP spokeswoman Capt. Nancy Rasmussen said her department went through internal training for handling crashes caused by smoke and fog. At the scene last year, Kelly recalled ASO deputies walking into the fog, calling out to people who needed help. Other deputies walked in front of ambulances, helping them navigate through the fog and wreckage. One deputy told Kelly it was like walking into a white cloud. While theyre doing this, they could hear crashes actually occur ring, Kelly said. All this happening around them, almost like being in a warzone. In his 15 years as a law enforcecrash was like nothing hed ever seen before. Theres no textbook for dealing with that, he said. Nothing you train for prepares you for a thing like that. Chief Larry Stewart of Alachua County Fire Rescue felt the same. The unique part about this was the visibility, he said. The biggest issue was commulaw enforcement, he said. Technology that can patch radio channels together exists, which Stewart said they will use in the future to strengthen communication. He said he feels the department is better prepared if a similar crash were to happen because it now has personnel with more experience. Now we can make better decisions on something that we have never really trained on or practiced or even thought of in previous incidents, he said. The fog that covered the roads that January morning could happen again, said UF meteorologist Jeff Huffman. Inter-agency communication between the forest service, FHP and FDOT has improved as well through an agreement signed Jan. 15, said Ludie Bond, wildlife mitigation land management agency would alert FHP, who would determine what action to take and request help from the FDOT if necessary. Weve been coordinating our message points and making sure the general public is getting the most up-to-date and accurate info, Bond said. And that cant help but improve safety on the highways. Since the crash, the pavement on I-75 has been repaired. But old wounds leave scars, and for Kelly, each bump and patch on the road as he drives on I-75 through Paynes Prairie is a reminder a danger in the face to save the lives of others. Its imprinted in you, he said. You dont wash it off. Its something you live with forever.

He sent a picture of a penis to the girl and asked her to send him a picture, according to the report. He also said that he wanted to have oral sex with the girl. Deputies arrested Parker and later booked him into Alachua County Jail at about 4 a.m. Friday, where he remained Monday night with a $250,000 bond. Ashcraft, 40, of 1021 NW 23rd Ave., responded to an online ad Saturday, according to the report. He thought he was emailing a 13-year-old girl and asked if she wanted to have sex. During questioning, Ashcraft told police he thought he was talking with an 18-year-old girl but later said he knew the girl was 13 years old.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Presidents breathe rare air, and reelected presidents, rarer air still. Only 44 people in American hisBarack Obama is just the 17th to have been elected twice. Rare air sometimes invigorates. More often, it makes people dizzy. An oddity of American politics is that nearly every president wants a second term, but second terms almost never turn out well. The re-elected Thomas Jefferson coerced Congress into declaring a ruinous embargo. Andrew Jackson sent the ham Lincoln and William McKinley were assassinated. Woodrow Wilson broke his health in a vain attempt to per suade Americans to join the League of Nations. The unlucky list goes on. The second-term curse can be asences. Second-termers enjoy no honeymoon. Their opponents attack them and their policies from the moment Second-termers typically operate election, they get their top choices for Cabinet and White House positions, from the most crucial and stressful Their successors are usually less talented, less energetic, less credible or less reliable.

First-term presidents who attempt election to a second term a group that includes every president since Rutherford Hayes mind their manners and those of their administrations with great care. Once freed of the burden of running again, however, they often let their guard down. Yet hope springs eternal for second terms, not least among those who achieve them. Second-term presidents can focus on the long run on issues too large or with payoffs too distant to survive the short-run tyranny that has constrained them heretofore. pers. A second-term president asks how it will read in the history books. Second-term presidents can ascend the moral high ground of the national interest, as opposed to the party interest, and not be charged with hypocrisy as What does all this mean for Barack Obama? to avoid scandals. Nothing stays secret for long these days. The slightest slip by him or a subordinate can ruin what remains of his presidency. The four most recent two-term presidencies ended in ignominy or segate, Reagan in Iran-Contra, Clinton in impeachment, Bush in the Katrina bungle. Obama must be very watchful and perhaps lucky to avoid a similar fate. Second, he should concentrate on a few carefully chosen issues. With these, he might have a chance at success. In his second inaugural address, he staked a position on immigration reform that would have been bold before the election, but that parallels what many Republicans have been thinking after the election results revealed how thoroughly they have alienated Latinos. end of the current Congress. More difThe Republicans have already retreated from the federal debt limit. If Obama doesnt push too hard, he might win the moderate Republican sustainable path. Third, he almost certainly will devote more of his time to foreign policy, especially in his seventh and eighth years. Presidents are merely coequals with Congress in domestic affairs, but in matters of war and peace and much of what lies between, they enjoy great autonomy. They can embark on wars, negotiate treaties and do all the other things that lie within the purview of the commander in chief and chief diplomat. Obama might attempt a transatlantic trade pact with the European mate change or jump-start the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. There is no guarantee of success foreign policy is hard. But when the approach of 2016 tempts the Republicans to run out the clock on Obama, as it assuredly will, foreign policy will seem like a vacation. In fact, foreign policy is often a vacation for presidents, which is another reason it beckons second-termers. Theres no ride like Air Force One. H.W.

First, we talked about the many names rumored to be 2016 contenders, and then about just one of those names: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. My professor gingerly brought up the subject of Christies girth and then, as politely as possible, asked us, Is Chris Christie too fat to be president?

Many argue that if Christie starts to lose But I argue Christie can be a contender and quite possibly win without ever dropping a pound from now until Election Day 2016. His weight will be an issue, but only a subconscious one. His opponents wont bring it up out of courtesy, and only reporters and town hall-goers will dare to broach the subject. To be sure, Christie will be asked about his weight. But if he has a ready-made answer that displays enough humor (without getting angry at the premise of the question or the questioners right to ask it), he can effectively turn his weight into a non-issue.

Not to mention, Christies weight simply plays into his devil-may-care attitude. Its as much a part of his character as his aggressive press conferences. And characters do well on television. What is most interesting about this whole Is Christie too large? debate is that it seems to be divided on generational lines. In my class many, if not most, students dismissed Christies weight as an unimportant factor. Meanwhile, our professor (who is about our parents age) could not accept the idea that the American people would ignore such an obvious trait. Perhaps the youngest voting generation is more willing to overlook physical differences in light of policy differences. After all, we were the can into the presidency.

Now, she has until March to think of one question to ask him when she meets him in person. Allen, an 18-year-old senior at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School, was one of two students chosen in Florida to attend the 51st annual United States Senate Youth Program from March 9 to March 16 in Washington, D.C.

Junior Scottie Wilbekin kept Bloodman contained outside the arc, and redshirt senior Mike Rosario came over to add extra pressure. In a panic, Bloodman jumped up and attempted a long pass to Tyson Cunningham. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, forward Will Yeguete was waiting nearby. Yeguete grabbed the pass, took it back across the court and fed it to Wilbekin, who made a layup to put Florida up 31-8 with 8:31 left in the in the Southeastern Conference with 73.7 points per game, their defense is their identity. At the end of last year, trying to go into this season and looking at the areas where we needed to improve and get better at and show them visually, statistically, individually and collectively as a group where they needed to get better, coach Billy Donovan said. What has happened is, because we have improved defensively, because we have gotten better from a year ago defensively, they are more eager to do it. They are personally taking pride in it. The No. 4 Gators 82-47 win against the Bulldogs in Starkville, Miss., was the 10th time this season that Florida has held an opponent to less than 50 points. Saturdays win also moved Florida to 6-0 in SEC play. Since starting conference play on Jan. 9, the Gators have won by a margin of 27 points per contest. There are things were doing defensively that Im giving those guys an enormous responsibility to call out coverages on the defensive end When you allow a team to do that, the coverages are going to be mixed, which is a positive thing Ive tried to give them the responsibility to put the onus on them to be accountable for them communicating, talking and doing those things. in the nation with an adjusted cording to KenPom.com. Helping the Gators lead the nation defensively is Wilbekin, who was named SEC Player of the Week on Monday. Wilbekin is averaging 1.8 steals per game this season, which ranks 10th in the SEC. Collectively, Florida is averaging 8.8 steals and 3.2 blocks per game in conference play. The Gators also have a 55.7 rebounding percentage, and seventh in the nation. Wilbekin is leading the Gators on defense, and center Patric Young said the juniors defensive intensity translates to his teammates performances. Every position is really important because you cant leave a guy out there on an island, Young said.

He may be young, but that hasnt stopped Gushue.

PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Redshirt freshman Carlie Needles was lights out against North Florida on Nov. 19, breaking Flor idas program record with nine three-pointers in a 74-44 victory. But in Southeastern Confer ence play, Needles and the Gators have fallen on dark times shooting the ball. During UFs current fourgame losing streak a slide that has dropped Florida into a tie for 11th in the SEC Needles has shot just 25 percent from the attempts from behind the arc. Sometimes you just have those games, Needles said. You have those games where stuff isnt falling. The Gators shortcomings from behind the arc have been an issue throughout conference play. Only South Carolina shoots at a lower percentage on three-pointers than Florida. UF has made just 22 of 87 attempts or 25.3 percent of its tries, a number emblematic of its offensive struggles as a whole. Though the Gators are a respectable seventh in the confer points per game coach Amanda Butler has recently grown frustrated with her teams offensive struggles.

Florida shot just 5 of 14 from from behind the arc. Butler described the failures from the foul line as ridiculous. Concerning three-point shooting, she explained her team must use better discernment moving for ward. Were shooting the ball pretty pathetically from the three, so we need to take less threes, Butler said. Its pretty simple. Weve got to be disciplined enough to turn down some of those open looks.

Jason Cole, an adjunct UF journalism professor, invited his sports reporting class to observe the media day with about 2,000 reporters from news outlets like ESPN, NFL. com and CBS. Its probably the biggest setting of media at one place at one time, he said. Cole, who is also a reporter for Yahoo News, was able to get press passes for his students. He said students will get a tour of the media center, Radio Row a gathering space for all attending radio stations and have guest lecturers from radio, TV and online news outlets. They would be seen but not heard, he said. Media day starts at about 9 a.m. today. Cole, who is not attending the event, said he would have class in the afternoon. This is the second time Cole has offered to take his class to media day. In 2010, he invited his students to the Super Bowl when it was hosted in Miami. Cole said he invites his students when Super Bowls are hosted near Gainesville. He said each student must make his or her own transportation plans but that he would cover the cost for a hotel with Marriott reward points. Im pretty parental when it comes to that, he said. UF journalism junior Caitlin Hartley, 20, said she carpooled with other students Monday. Not a lot of students would get this because were lucky to have a teacher like Jason who covers the NFL, Hartley said. UF class to attend Super Bowl media day today CHRIS ALCANTARA and KATHRYN VARNIt was in the early hours of Jan. 29, 2012 when AlaLt. Todd Kelly received a call about an accident on Interstate 75 in Paynes Prairie State Park. Even a year later, he remembers the scene vividly. through the thick fog. The smell of deployed airbags, gasoline and smoke hanging in the air. The lines of wrecked vehicles stretching from one side of the prairie to the other. It seemed to never end, Kelly said. The farther I went in, the worse it got. On the afternoon of Jan. 28, 2012, smoke from a Paynes U.S. 441 and I-75. Overnight, the smoke swirled with the early morning fog, causing the Florida Highway Patrol to close the roads after responding to several accidents due to drivers limited visibility. The FHP reopened the roads a few hours later. But the crashes continued. Shortly after 4 a.m., 911 calls started to pour into FHP from I-75, according to Alligator archives. with a multi-car accident that eventually left 11 people dead and more than a dozen in the hospital, according to archives. Today marks the one-year anniversary of the I-75 crash, an event that is considered to be one of the deadliest car accidents in the history of North Central Florida. In the year following the crash, the Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Forest Services and the FHP collaborated to make driving safer in the event that dense fog or smoke envelops the roads along Paynes Prairie. The city installed cameras along I-75 to monitor the trafthe road to the Gainesville City said FDOT spokeswoman Gina Busscher.

Kriete, 20, of 13 Fraternity Row, responded Friday night to an online ad, where he started talking to who he thought was the father of a 14-year-old girl. During the conversation, Kriete allegedly wrote, id love to help her explore her body and what to do with older guys. He later said to the father, what if I told you id love to f--the s--out of her? according to the report. The next night, Kriete drove to meet the girl and was arrested by deputies. Deputies booked Kriete into the Alachua County Jail at 3:19 a.m. Sunday on a $75,000 bond.

His love interest, Tiffany, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is battling her own demons.

For the director to condense someones everyday life into an hour and a half, audiences can misunderstand that day-to-day life doesnt happen that quickly, Lawrence said. said. But depending on the way it is presented, movies have as much potential to help as to harm. He has not seen Silver Linings Playbook but said in any Hollywood portrayal of mental illness audiences have to be mindful that someone may do something that is funny, but there is something that runs deeper underneath. We laugh when we are uncomfortable, he said. Lawrence said challenges that characters face in movies can be found funny when they are taken out of context. But put in context, that is someones life, he said. They arent deciding to be manic in the middle of the night. Some critics felt like the romanheal mental illness. Its possible, but thats not what we see, Lawrence said. Its not to say that someone cant manage their symptoms without medication or intensive treatment. There are people who do that.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 Vehicle detectors and TV cameras monitor the highway nowsaid, will happen early next year when the FDOT begins a $3 million project that will help keep motorists safe while driving with low visibility. The project consists of the installation of three changeable message signs along the Micanopy and Gainesville corridor of I-75, Busscher said. Vehicle detectors that measure speeds to see if theres a problem will be installed on the same poles as the current TV cameras. Sensors will also measure visibility on the road. By the time the project is completed, she said, the detectors and sensors will be integrated into the 511 system, which drivers can call to said additional cameras will be installed along U.S. 441. FHP spokeswoman Capt. Nancy Rasmussen said her department went through internal training for handling crashes caused by smoke and fog. At the scene last year, Kelly recalled ASO deputies walking into the fog, calling out to people who needed help. Other deputies walked in front of ambulances, helping them navigate through the fog and wreckage. One deputy told Kelly it was like walking into a white cloud. While theyre doing this, they could hear crashes actually occur ring, Kelly said. All this happening around them, almost like being in a warzone. In his 15 years as a law enforcecrash was like nothing hed ever seen before. Theres no textbook for dealing with that, he said. Nothing you train for prepares you for a thing like that. Chief Larry Stewart of Alachua County Fire Rescue felt the same. The unique part about this was the visibility, he said. The biggest issue was commulaw enforcement, he said. Technology that can patch radio channels together exists, which Stewart said they will use in the future to strengthen communication. He said he feels the department is better prepared if a similar crash were to happen because it now has personnel with more experience. Now we can make better decisions on something that we have never really trained on or practiced or even thought of in previous incidents, he said. The fog that covered the roads that January morning could happen again, said UF meteorologist Jeff Huffman. Inter-agency communication between the forest service, FHP and FDOT has improved as well through an agreement signed Jan. 15, said Ludie Bond, wildlife mitigation land management agency would alert FHP, who would determine what action to take and request help from the FDOT if necessary. Weve been coordinating our message points and making sure the general public is getting the most up-to-date and accurate info, Bond said. And that cant help but improve safety on the highways.

Intimate partner violence involves one partner who is exerting power and control over another. The event was coordinated by Pride Student Union and a UF LGBT Affairs ambassador, Mirella Flores, a 20-year-old UF psychology senior. While the LGBT community was acknowledged during the presentation, this form of violence occurs with the same frequency as in heterosexual relationships. Intimate partner violence occurs in about 33 percent of all intimate relationships, according to the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs. surveys concerning its exposure to violence and abuse. Two-thirds of the audience answered yes to: Do you know someone who has been physically, emotionally or sexually harmed by his or her partner?

TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Presidents breathe rare air, and reelected presidents, rarer air still. Only 44 people in American hisBarack Obama is just the 17th to have been elected twice. Rare air sometimes invigorates. More often, it makes people dizzy. An oddity of American politics is that nearly every president wants a second term, but second terms almost never turn out well. The re-elected Thomas Jefferson coerced Congress into declaring a ruinous embargo. Andrew Jackson sent the ham Lincoln and William McKinley were assassinated. Woodrow Wilson broke his health in a vain attempt to persuade Americans to join the League of Nations. The unlucky list goes on. The second-term curse can be asences. Second-termers enjoy no honeymoon. Their opponents attack them and their policies from the moment Second-termers typically operate election, they get their top choices for Cabinet and White House positions, from the most crucial and stressful Their successors are usually less talented, less energetic, less credible or less reliable.

First-term presidents who attempt election to a second term a group that includes every president since Rutherford Hayes mind their manners and those of their administrations with great care. Once freed of the burden of running again, however, they often let their guard down. Yet hope springs eternal for second terms, not least among those who achieve them. Second-term presidents can focus on the long run on issues too large or with payoffs too distant to survive the short-run tyranny that has constrained them heretofore. pers. A second-term president asks how it will read in the history books. Second-term presidents can ascend the moral high ground of the national interest, as opposed to the party interest, and not be charged with hypocrisy as What does all this mean for Barack Obama? to avoid scandals. Nothing stays secret for long these days. The slightest slip by him or a subordinate can ruin what remains of his presidency. The four most recent two-term presidencies ended in ignominy or segate, Reagan in Iran-Contra, Clinton in impeachment, Bush in the Katrina bungle. Obama must be very watchful and perhaps lucky to avoid a similar fate. Second, he should concentrate on a few carefully chosen issues. With these, he might have a chance at success. In his second inaugural address, he staked a position on immigration reform that would have been bold before the election, but that parallels what many Republicans have been thinking after the election results revealed how thoroughly they have alienated Latinos. end of the current Congress. More difThe Republicans have already retreated from the federal debt limit. If Obama doesnt push too hard, he might win the moderate Republican sustainable path. Third, he almost certainly will devote more of his time to foreign policy, especially in his seventh and eighth years. Presidents are merely coequals with Congress in domestic affairs, but in matters of war and peace and much of what lies between, they enjoy great autonomy. They can embark on wars, negotiate treaties and do all the other things that lie within the purview of the commander in chief and chief diplomat. Obama might attempt a transatlantic trade pact with the European mate change or jump-start the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. There is no guarantee of success foreign policy is hard. But when the approach of 2016 tempts the Republicans to run out the clock on Obama, as it assuredly will, foreign policy will seem like a vacation. In fact, foreign policy is often a vacation for presidents, which is another reason it beckons second-termers. Theres no ride like Air Force One. H.W.

First, we talked about the many names rumored to be 2016 contenders, and then about just one of those names: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. My professor gingerly brought up the subject of Christies girth and then, as politely as possible, asked us, Is Chris Christie too fat to be president? The problem with the Christie is too fat ar gument is it is are all preconceived. He and his team of savvy politicos can anticipate any claim and prepare for it. Heart disease is countered with no history in the family. High blood pressure is refuted with What presidential candidate doesnt have high blood pressure in such a fast-paced campaign?

Many argue that if Christie starts to lose But I argue Christie can be a contender and quite possibly win without ever dropping a pound from now until Election Day 2016. His weight will be an issue, but only a subconscious one. His opponents wont bring it up out of courtesy, and only reporters and town hall-goers will dare to broach the subject. To be sure, Christie will be asked about his weight. But if he has a ready-made answer that displays enough humor (without getting angry at the premise of the question or the questioners right to ask it), he can effectively turn his weight into a non-issue. Remember Ronald Reagans famous 1984 oneliner? When asked a question about his age he would become the oldest president elected ploit, for political purposes, my opponents youth Reagan moment (and he can), he will beat the Christie is too fat argument. Not to mention, Christies weight simply plays into his devil-may-care attitude. Its as much a part of his character as his aggressive press conferences. And characters do well on television. What is most interesting about this whole Is Christie too large? debate is that it seems to be divided on generational lines. In my class many, if not most, students dismissed Christies weight as an unimportant factor. Meanwhile, our professor (who is about our parents age) could not accept the idea that the American people would ignore such an obvious trait. Perhaps the youngest voting generation is more willing to overlook physical differences in light of policy differences. After all, we were the can into the presidency.

Materials science and engineering associate professor Jiangeng Xue will work on the light powered technology project with researchers from two other universities. Their research aims to test barium silicide, a compound of barium and silicon found in Earths crust. Little is known about the barium silicide compound, and its application for solar power has not really been studied. The abundance of both barium and silicon could make solar cells cost-effective.

NATANYA SPIESAlligator Contributing WriterKailyn Allen spent more than a year campaigning against President Barack Obama as chairwoman of the Florida Federation of Teenage Republicans. Now, she has until March to think of one question to ask him when she meets him in person. Allen, an 18-year-old senior at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School, was one of two students chosen in Florida to attend the 51st annual United States Senate Youth Program from March 9 to March 16 in Washington, D.C. Its an incredible opportunity to be able to talk to the leader of the free world, she said. The merit-based program, sponsored by the Senate and funded by the Hearst Foundations, gives students an in-depth look at the American government and the history and rules of the Senate, program director Rayne Guilford said. Guilford said students were chosen based on their academic excellence, leadership qualities and experience serving a Allen, who is a dual-enrolled student at UF, is president of her senior class and president of the schools Speech and Debate Club.

Allen hopes to attend law school and Hopefully she can live and learn from other peoples perspectives, her father, Kevin Allen, 55, said. Gary Boulware, advanced placement government and economics teacher at P.K. Yonge, said he saw Allens interest in politics when she ran for class president. It was pretty interesting for me to watch a young lady navigate sometimes treacherous political waters, and do so rather effectively, he said. Catherine Atria, principal at P.K. Yonge, said she was excited that Allen was chosen as a delegate. Its certainly quite an honor to have her as our student and be recognized in this fashion, she said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Kittys KornerFloridas lacrosse team was ranked No. 3 in the preseason deBeer Media Poll. The Gators return all but one starter from the 2012 roster. KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer Even as the Gators led the Bulldogs by 21 points early in Saturdays game, they werent letting up on defense. half, Mississippi States Craig Sword inbounded the ball to Trivante Bloodman. Junior Scottie Wilbekin kept Bloodman contained outside the arc, and redshirt senior Mike Rosario came over to add extra pressure. In a panic, Bloodman jumped up and attempted a long pass to Tyson Cunningham. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, forward Will Yeguete was waiting nearby. Yeguete grabbed the pass, took it back across the court and fed it to Wilbekin, who made a layup to put Florida up 31-8 with 8:31 left in the in the Southeastern Conference with 73.7 points per game, their defense is their identity. At the end of last year, trying to go into this season and looking at the areas where we needed to improve and get better at and show them visually, statistically, individually and collectively as a group where they needed to get better, coach Billy Donovan said. What has happened is, because we have improved defensively, because we have gotten better from a year ago defensively, they are more eager to do it. They are personally taking pride in it. The No. 4 Gators 82-47 win against the Bulldogs in Starkville, Miss., was the 10th time this season that Florida has held an opponent to less than 50 points. Saturdays win also moved Florida to 6-0 in SEC play. Since starting conference play on Jan. 9, the Gators have won by a margin of 27 points per contest. There are things were doing defensively that Im giving those guys an enormous responsibility to call out coverages on the defensive end When you allow a team to do that, the coverages are going to be mixed, which is a positive thing Ive tried to give them the responsibility to put the onus on them to be accountable for them communicating, talking and doing those things. in the nation with an adjusted cording to KenPom.com. Helping the Gators lead the nation defensively is Wilbekin, who was named SEC Player of the Week on Monday. Wilbekin is averaging 1.8 steals per game this season, which ranks 10th in the SEC. Collectively, Florida is averaging 8.8 steals and 3.2 blocks per game in conference play. The Gators also have a 55.7 rebounding percentage, and seventh in the nation. Wilbekin is leading the Gators on defense, and center Patric Young said the juniors defensive intensity translates to his teammates performances. Every position is really important because you cant leave a guy out there on an island, Young said. Everyone needs to know how important help defense is, and us being able to play really good help defense helps everyone else out. Senior Kenny Boynton cance of what it can do for the team if we dont play defense one possession. It can change the game. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org. Senior Lauren Embree and the womens tennis team looks toward a third national title. UF will face all ranked teams in February. See story page 15. Aundre Larrow / Alligator Staff Guards Mike Rosario (left) and Kenny Boynton (1) force a turnover from Missouris Keion Bell (5) during Floridas 83-52 win on Jan. 19 in the OConnell Center. Florida is averaging 8.8 steals per game in conference play. UF tops SEC in rebounding per centage Taylor Gushue almost hit the lights at Mark Light Field in Coral Gables last season in just his ninth collegiate game. Instead, the freshman settled for an awe-inspiring solo homer. he saw in the season opener against then-No. 16 Cal State Fullerton. In all, catcher in 2012. He may be young, but that hasnt stopped Gushue. The few times I was able to interview him after games, the guy didnt act like he was a 17 or 18-year-old, Perfect Game Managing Editor Kendall Rogers said. That is a kind of a consistent trait they look for in catchers. Now with Mr. Consistency in Mike Zunino gone, Gushue takes over for the Seattle Mariners catching prospect, who won nearly every national award in 2012. If Florida aims to earn its fourthstraight Omaha appearance, Gushue behind the plate. Zunino led Florida in home runs and OPS last season. He controlled a pitching staff for three years that featured 12 future MLB draft picks. Florida has two proven starting pitchers leading an otherwise young staff that Gushue will manage. He succeeded at the plate when he Gushue, who skipped his senior high school season at Boca Raton Calvary Christian High, earned Southeastern Conference Freshman of the of college baseball. Then a .143 batting average in SEC play saw him lose his everyday starting spot.

PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Redshirt freshman Carlie Needles was lights out against North Florida on Nov. 19, breaking Flor idas program record with nine three-pointers in a 74-44 victory. But in Southeastern Confer ence play, Needles and the Gators have fallen on dark times shooting the ball. During UFs current fourgame losing streak a slide that has dropped Florida into a tie for 11th in the SEC Needles has shot just 25 percent from the attempts from behind the arc. Sometimes you just have those games, Needles said. You have those games where stuff isnt falling. The Gators shortcomings from behind the arc have been an issue throughout conference play. Only South Carolina shoots at a lower percentage on three-pointers than Florida.

Florida shot just 5 of 14 from from behind the arc. Butler described the failures from the foul line as ridiculous. Concerning three-point shooting, she explained her team must use better discernment moving for ward. Were shooting the ball pretty pathetically from the three, so we need to take less threes, Butler said. Its pretty simple. Weve got to be disciplined enough to turn down some of those open looks.
