WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 JEFFREY REALEAlligator Contributing WriterFor a long time, scooters have been a staple at UF as an alternative to riding the bus or driving to campus. However, that trend is in transition, partly because scooters may not be as green as students once believed. Over the past three years, were selling fewer decals, said Scott Fox, director of UFs Transportation and Parking Services. Fox said the slight decline resulted from environmentally harmful emissions. After conducting surveys to understand scooter riders feelings toward the decals, that led them to raise prices, Fox said. The survey found that if decal prices increased, students would ride the bus instead. From 2010 to 2011, the full-year decal price increased from $96 to $144, according to Alligator archives. This year, the decal costs $150 a year and $75 a semester, which is the same for all other student decals. The survey also revealed that about 70 percent of students made more than six trips around campus on their scooters daily. tially aid sustainability efforts. In the 2009-2010 school year, 2,104 students purchased decals. In 2010-2011, the number fell to 2,038. In 2011-2012, the number dropped slightly to 2,027. Fox said he believes the numbers will continue to decline slightly. While students at UF may be riding scooters less, it appears that more bandwagon. Collin Austin, owner of New Scooters 4 Less, 118 NW 14th Ave., has seen more nonstudents purchasing scooters to drive around Gainesville. In 2011, we expanded our customer demographics to include non-students daily drivers by acquiring the number one scooter brand in the world, Vespa, Austin wrote in an email. He said the brand attracts more commuters to purchase scooters. Fox said one reason more students are declining to ride scooters is due to the increased Gainesville Regional Transit System services. He said that with more buses and stop locations added during the past few years, students are inclined to use RTS to get around. However, Samantha Salud had the opposite impression. I actually imagined that scooter decal sales would be rising, said the 19-yearold UF applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore. Salud said she uses her scooter to get to campus for class and cheerleading practices. Its really convenient, and its a lot easier than waiting for the bus or trying getting a decal for the next few years. Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffSince the 2009-2010 school year, the number of on-campus scooter decals bought dropped by about 4 percent, according to UFs Transportation and Parking Services. C AMPUSScooter decal sales decline as resident popularity climbs THE FRESHMAN RETENTION RATE IS 96 PERCENT. LAUREN ACTONAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough many universities nationwide are not coping well with higher-education funding cuts, UF tends to roll with the punches. Nationally, students are dropping out of school and being left to swim in debt, according to The American Dream 2.0, a report released last month by a group of college presidents, civil rights leaders and advocates. It also said 46 percent of Ameriany credential within six years. But UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF has reacted well to the state funding cuts. The freshman retention rate at UF is 96 percent, and 83 percent of students graduate with a degree within six years, Orlando said. We keep students by starting off with great students, he added. He attributed much of UFs success in student retention and graduate Admissions. With about 29,000 applications and only 6,400 slots, there is no way we wouldnt get the best students possible, Orlando said. He said the reason UF students accumulate less debt than students at other public universities is because UFs tuition is lower than the national average. Students also have Florida Bright Futures and Florida Prepaid scholarships that Jonathan Thomas, a 21-year-old abled him to study without racking up debt. If I were to drop out of UF for any reason, it would be because of the rigorous coursework, not debt, Thomas said. Orlando said UF advisers and faculty members try their best to We would never want the lack of monetary funds to hold students back from getting what they have worked so hard to obtain, he said. Vanessa Grimaldi, a 20-yearabout how friendly Daniel Schieltz, He really listened to my issues and helped me out as much as possible, Grimaldi said. Orlando stressed that UF will do a lot for students to get the aid they need including lay off faculty members. He said that UF has been very good at allocating its resources so that students dont graduate with large debts. There is a reason why the national average of university students that graduate with debt is two-thirds, whereas at UF it is only one-third, he said.UF students transcend national average retention rateOrlando

Super Bowl: Who hasnt blacked out in New Orleans?The cause behind the blackout during Sundays Super Bowl is still unknown. This is hilarious because its 2013, and we were under the impression that we could solve the mysteries behind basic power outages in the same night. We were asking everybody at every position what was happening, and the fact of the matter is we just didnt know, Sean McManus, the chairman of CBS Sports, told the Los Angeles Times, according to the New Yorker. If you plugged something back in or tweaked a spark plug (how does electricity work?), then you probably understand comic this week, lets speculate about all of the fun, possible true causes: 1. Beyonc? No, her awesome performance didnt cause a complete internal collapse of a power infrastructure, but it might as well have. Too much girl power on stage could totally cause a power outage, right? 2. Gun control laws? Has Obama started to take away our guns AND our electricity?! Here we thought hes been innocently trying to save as many lives in the future as he can by entirely restricting our rights and freedoms as Americans, obviously. Instead, hes probably been planning other ways to ruin our mundane lives. That leaky bathroom faucet? OBAMA! 3. Cold weather? Listen, were all bitter about the weather turning against us. Sadly, thats how winter works. As Floridians, we will defend our right to wear shorts at any time of year until we die (of frostbite). Because the game was in good ol New Orleans, maybe the electricity system also rebelled against the cooler temperature. Who knows how a cold snap made a grid of wires feel? Probably like quitting for 34 minutes. 4. Chris Brown? Odds are he couldve had something to do with it. 5. Elaborate Destinys Child revenge plot? Yeah, so what if Destinys Child sort of reunited and then performed together on the halftime stage? Maybe the other girls (or just Michelle Williams) are jealous of Beyoncs awesome life and took it out on her by shutting down the game for a few minutes. We know it didnt directly affect Beyonc at all, but we like the idea because it sounds like a heist movie. 6. Apple Maps? Remember how terribly inaccurate that app is always showing people the wrong stuff? Well, if the spark grid (really, how does electricity work?) ran on similarly faulty Apple technology, it was probably more likely to malfunction than if it was running on a few other operating systems. 7. Puppy Bowl jealousy Face it: The Puppy Bowl is the best part of any Super Bowl. Accept it. Because more people should know about it, perhaps the puppy players orchestrated an adorable scheme for more attention. Which option seems most likely to you?When supporters of LGBT equality denounced ing gay marriage, conservatives rushed to support the fast-food chain and defended Dan Cathys freedom of speech. However, people did not criticize Cathy for his words but lions to anti-gay groups that support horrible laws here and abroad. Despite claims of a violation of Cathys freedom of speech or religion, we should note that, ironically, the First Amendment also protects the criticism Cathy received. Furthermore, the First Amendment only protects attacks on speech from the government not private individuals. The First Amendment also protects freedom of association. If I dont like the practices of a particular business, I can choose whether I purchase their products or services. tives have the right to associate with or donate money to whomever they want. But that doesnt mean I have to agree with it. with policies we disagree with is what freedom is about. The beauty of a country based on individual liberty and private property is that we can patronize or not patronize and associate or not associate with whomever we wish. Companies that support terrible policies or engage in anti-gay activities have to suffer the consequences of their actions. They might gain customers who agree with them now, but as the tide turns on the issue of gay marriage as younger generations replace older ones, they should realize their policies wont be sustainable in the long run. In his concurring opinion in Whitney v. California, Jusfalsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by process of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence. The action (or inaction) of boycotting choosing not to buy from a company that supports discriminatory groups or policies represents this Brandeisian concept of counterspeech. Conservatives who purportedly support the free market destroy the power of their argument when they condemn groups for peacefully boycotting. The free market relies on voluntary associations, which includes the freedom to not associate. Those who boycott companies for practices with which they disagree are simply engaging in a perfectly valid market activity. In the past, the government passed laws banning discrimination by governments and private businesses. Government discrimination, such as Jim Crow laws in the pre-civil rights era south, should certainly be prohibited to promote equality under the law. However, laws that force racists, homophobes and antiSemitics who own private businesses to interact with groups they wouldnt otherwise choose to be around hinders the power of the freedom to associate. These people are terrible for holding such hateful views and need to be shown the error of their ways. Yet, because anti-discrimination laws circumvent the power of social pressure and counterspeech to prevent discrimination, sentiments like racism and homophobia are generally pushed underground and away from public scrutiny. This keeps racists and homophobes in business and makes it discriminatory companies and boycott them. As John Stuart Mill contended in On Liberty, The whole strength and value, then, of human judgment, depending on the one property, that it can be set right when it is wrong, reliance can be placed on it only when the means of setting it right are kept constantly at hand. mophobia out in the open. Freedom means the freedom to discriminate and the freedom to boycott that discrimination. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in political communication.

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, FUN AND FITNESS, 7 Managing Time for Academic SuccessMany college students have very busy schedules and the pressure of being academically successful can be great, so being able to manage your time is essential! In fact, according to a 2010 Healthy Gators survey, UF students reported that effectively managing their time was very important to their academic success. Indeed, learning how to manage your time helps increase productivity and reduces procrastination, both of which can improve academic success. So how do you turn this knowledge into action? 1. Assess how you are currently using your time. For 2-3 days, keep a time log of what you do during the day and how long you spend doing it. Afterwards, look for trends. Identify which activities are important (see #2 ) and which are time wasters. 2. Know whats important! Prioritize your daily and weekly tasks. Then, organize your time according to your pri. 3. Make time to manage time. Set aside consistent time in your schedule to organize how you will use your time. This can be done on a daily, weekly, monthly, and even wholesemester basis. There are a wide variety of tools that can be used to help with this including planners, calendars, phone apps, and to do lists. Pick whatever works for you and your organization style. 4. Minimize distractions. Identify what your common distractors and time wasters are. Then, come up with a plan to minimize these where possible. This may mean studying in a different environment, turning off the TV and/or computer, times of the day that you will not answer the phone or hangout with friends. 5. Learn to say NO! Sometimes it feels like you do not have enough time in the day to get everything done because YOU DONT. If 24 hours rarely seems like enough time, then you may be putting too much on your plate. Sound familiar? Identify current activities that are not priorities and decrease them or cut them out completely. In the future, before you say yes to something new, ask yourself it if realissomething new, think about cutting something else out of your schedule. 6. Make time for yourself! Living a balanced life is important to your overall wellbeing. Schedule time to take care of yourself and manage your stress. Take breaks while studying, relax at the end of a long day, or schedule in activities that you enjoy doing such as volunteering, hiking, dancing, going to sporting events, or spending time with friends. For more information about time management or to learn how to schedule an appointment with a wellness coach to work on time management, visit GatorWells web site at gaRecently at GatorWell we asked University of Florida students to provide us feedhad about health. The following are two of your alcohol great and our answers: Q1. What should I do when everyone around me is drinking and I dont wish to drink? First of all, if you choose not to drink, you are not alone. At UF, over 17,000 students choose not to drink alcohol. The decision of when, where, and why you drink is yours. It should not be dependent on the drinking habits of those around you. Remember that it is always okay to say fusal. You can also carry around a nonalcoholic drink such as juice, soda, tea, and water. Keep busy-make conversation, enjoy the meal or appetizers, take photos with other guests, or dance with your friends. Offer to be the sober designated driver. Explain your reasons for not drinking or make an excuse such as youre allergic to alcohol, you have a test or project the next day, you have to get up early the next morning, you dont want to spend the money, youve been sick and taking antibiotics, or it is contrary to your religious beliefs. Regardless of what you say, the decision to not drink is your own and it should be respected by your friends. Q2. Is there any way to know if drugs have been slipped into your drink at your party? It is important to remember that alcohol itself is the cheapest type of drug. It is It is easy to lose track of how many drinks Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) to over the legal limit of .08. Further, if an individual has passed out from drinking too much, legally they cannot give their consent for sexual activity. There is really no way to detect if an additional drug has been slipped into your drink. Most drugs are odorless, colorless, and tasteless. If a drug such as Rohypnol, Ketamine, or GHB has been slipped into your drink, you will being to experience the effects almost immediately including a sleepy, relaxed, and drunk feeling that lasts anywhere between 2 to 8 hours. These types of drugs combined with alcohol can also result in amnesia, respiratory depression, and death. Ways to decrease your risk include the following: Get a fresh drink if you have left your drink unattended. Never accept drinks from someone you dont know, even if it is an acquaintance Watch the bartender or server make your drink Use the buddy system to watch out for friends Never leave a party or club with someone you do not know well and trust Be alert to any unusual behavior around you If you suspect your drink has been drugged, seek medical help as soon as possibleFor more information about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, visit GatorWells web site at gatorwell.

8, FUN AND FITNESS, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Exercise journaling: A way to get up and goYou may have made a New Years resolution to work out more, but by the end of February most of those resolutions have begun to fade away like the winter weather in Florida. A great way to get back on that horse is to start an exercise journal, which enables you to easily track your progress and see just how much youve improved over time. cise journal: 1. Decide how you want to journal. You can buy a traditional paper journal or use an online journal log.com or check out the Body Fitness app for iPhoneboth are free! 2. Set aside time to journal. Find the time of day and environment that works best so youll stick to it. 3. Consider making short-term goals, such as exercising three times in one week. 4. Track your weekly activities. Give yourself credit for being active throughout the week, and remember that things like walking the dog and cleaning the house count, too! 1) How am I feeling? (energy level, muscle/joint pain and mood); 2) What did I do? (time, distance and/or reps); and 3) How have I progressed? (faster, further and/or other successes). 5. Allow yourself to just write! Write about your feelings and thoughts however they come out. Be patient with yourself. It may take time to get comfortable with the idea of journaling if youve never done it before, so dont worry if you miss a day or two. Just pick up your pen and start writing again when you can. Reread your entries every month or so. Be objective and take the opportunity to see what areas you can improve, but also look back and celebrate the progress you have made!

Get up during commer cials and study breaks and do some jumping-jacks, sit-ups, or push-ups. Use technology. Try Wii P90X. 2. Change your daily routines. Park at the end of the parking lot and use that oppor tunity to add physical activity to your errands. Chores count toovacuum, dust, mop, scrub, they all get you moving. Bike to campus. Walk to that next class rather than taking the bus. Use a pedometer to track your daily stepseverything counts! 3.Get Social! Get an exercise buddy that will keep you motivated. Grab a couple friends and take a trip out to Lake Wauberg. Join an intramural team, club team, or student organization. From sailing to table tennis, quidditch to dance, there are lots of activities to try out on campus. 4.Try New Things. The Gainesville Rock Gym offers a fun rock climbing experience. UF Rec Sports, community gyms and centers, and even the Alachua County Public Library offer unique group classes such as Bosu, Country Line and Zumba. If youre up for a little adventure, The Lake Alice walking/biking path, Paynes Prairie State Preserve, Morningside Trails, and/or San Felasco Hammock Preserve are fun options to experience nature while getting in some physical activity. 5.Other Tips. Gradually build new activities or longer time spent exercising into your routine. Feel proud of your accomplishments and celebrate your successes! Use an app to keep track. ity that is both challenging and fun.

Always be preparedAccidents can happen: Condoms can break because they are past the expiration date, stored improperly, or used incorrectly, especially in the heat of the moment. If youre worried that a condom may break, you may want to keep the following points in mind. Condoms should never be stored in a wallet, car, or direct sunlight because heat, even body heat, weakens the condom over time. Oil-based lubricants also cause condoms to break. Instead choose a water or silicone-based lube (Astroglide, Wet, etc) which is safe for use with condoms and can help prevent breakage by reducing friction. Never use two condoms at once because the friction can cause both condoms to break. condom package to ensure it still has an air bubble (if it does not, the package and condom may be punctured). Open the package carefully (no teeth, nails, or scissors). Pinch the tip of the condom to leave space for ejaculation and unroll the condom all the way down. After sex, hold the base of the condom before withdrawing. break there are a few things to consider. If pregnancy prevention is a concern, consider following your condom breaking incident with Plan B. Also known as emer gency contraception, or EC, the high-dose birth control pill is available over-thecounter and can prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours. Plan B is most effective when within 24 hours. Women and men over 17 years of age can call a doctor, a health clinic, a pharmacy, or place an overnight order from Drugstore.com without a prescription. If sexually transmitted infections (STI) prevention is a concern, there are some things to consider. There are different window periods, or time it takes for the STI to be detected in a persons system, so the timing of testing is important. When it does come time to test, there are some reasonably priced or even free options to consider on campus or in the Gainesville community. er STI testing (including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis), is also available at the Student Health Care Center (392-1161), 7960). Depending on the site, pricing ranges from free to fees determined by a sliding scale fee or based on your insurance.

10, FUN AND FITNESS, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 The Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique is a simple, natural, effortless procedure practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. The most widely practiced and most researched method of self-development, TM has proven effective in over 600 research studies conducted at more than 200 universities and research centersincluding Harvard, UCLA, and Stanford. Reduction of anxiety and depression are among the chief health study published in the Journal of Counseling and Development found that patients suffering from post-traumatic stress problems who learned the TM technique showed after four months, in contrast to others who were randomly assigned to receive psychotherapy. The Transcendental Meditation technique tends to produce what is most needed in our livesbalance, says James Krag, M.D., president of the Psychiatric Society of Virginia. Researchers say that the unique state of restful alertness gained during the TM technique promotes health by reducing activation of the sympathetic nervous system which, in turn, dilates the blood vessels and reduces stress hormones, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol. Research has shown that the practice of the TM technique is, on average, twice as effective [as other types of meditation] in reducing anxiety and changing and reducing physiological correlates of stress, which are the basis of the bodys healing responses, at the basis of prevention of disease and promotion of health, said Robert Schneider, M.D., who has been awarded more than $20 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for his pioneering research on natural approaches to heart disease. worldwide practice this simple techniquepeople of all ages, cultures, and religions.

Eight Arkansas players scored at least seven points, and its bench outscored Floridas reserves 40-12. UF has three days to regroup before hosting Mississippi State on Saturday in the OConnell Center. Sometimes getting humbled is a good thing to get us back to, Who are we? Donovan said. We could have played a very good game and lost, but for our basketball team to be down to anybody by 25, 26, of us and not Arkansas. They played well dont get me wrong but theyre not 28 points or 26 points better than us. They are when we show up like we did today. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. command of the changeup gives opposing batters more to think about. He added that developing the pitch didnt necessarily entail taking advice from anyone. Crawford simply had to practice throwing it. In UFs last scrimmage, OSullivan said Crawford threw his changeup for strikes about 85 percent of the time. Obviously, hes always had the great fastball and the breaking ball, OSullivan said. But I think the changeup, the way thats evolved, will take him to another level. The expectations are higher than ever for Crawford with another year of experience and an improved arsenal. Despite the hype, OSullivan expects his No. 1 starter to stay grounded. I really think hes a team guy, OSullivan said. Hes very much concerned about how the team is doing and how theyre progressing. Hes done a great job with the younger players. I think hes really consumed about the teams success. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at email@example.com.

On Tuesday, Khan continued his demolition project by unveiling a new logo, joined the league in 1995. The franchise is expected to introduce new uniforms in April. Im not sure how to describe the new logo without sounding stupid, but here goes nothing. The jaguar looks more fear some. The cat is aggressive and opportunistic, much like Mr. Khan. Frankly, I think the new logo is kind of badass. Teal nose and all. With an owner as business-savvy and forward thinking as Khan, I wont be sur prised to learn of more changes down the road. The stache will not stand pat. Khan has made something out of nothing before. He came to the United States from Pakistan at age 16 with only $500 in his pockhourly rate of $1.20. Now, Khan owns auto parts manufacturer Flex-N-Gate and the NFLs Jaguars and is worth more than $2.5 billion. Khan is an innovator who will stop at nothing to achieve what he wants. He seized an opportunity in Jacksonville and is methodically bringing his vision for the Jaguars to life. Khan is a man that strives to be ahead of the curve, and as he continually becomes more accustomed to the NFL, Jacksonvilles prospects will only improve. He is bold, he is a risk-taker and he is the only guy I want running the Jaguars. Contact Joe Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org. JOE, from page 14
ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator WriterHannah Rogers ERA in 2012 would make AL Cy Young Award winner David Prices jaw drop. But for the Gators junior righty, theres always room for improvement. Rogers has been working on changing her pitch repertoire and improving her location. I am trying to work on hitting new spots with my pitches instead of just constantly hitting the same spots, Rogers said. Despite improving her ERA from 1.92 in 2011 to 1.23 in 2012, Rogers accuracy didnt show the same jump. As a freshman, Rogers struck out 221 batters and walked 70 in 265.2 innings a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.15. During her sophomore campaign, she pitched fewer innings because of fatigue. In 228.1 innings, she tallied 202 punch outs and walked 65, dropping the ratio to 3.11. But this year, Rogers is healthy and ready to go. Rogers comes into 2013 as the Gators Fridays season opener against Creighton in the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz. This is probably the best offseason I feel like Ive had, she said. I feel fresh from my legs to my arms. Coach Tim Walton said the junior has focused on getting back into top shape during the offseason. She doesnt say a lot, Walton said of Rogers. Last week, I dont think she said anything to anybody. She just kept mowing batters down left and right and went about her business. Walton said Rogers will be more dythis year, and Rogers teammates agree. Lauren Haeger has seen Rogers new pitches in the bullpen and from the batters box. [Rogers] has an amazing dropball that none of us can hit, no matter how many times we try, Haeger said. And she has a lot of off-speed (pitches), so it really messes with your timing. Freshman catcher Aubree Munro has caught Rogers in scrimmages and said the junior is one of the best pitchers shes ever caught. [Rogers is] an awesome pitcher for me, as a catcher, to work with, Munro said. It makes my job pretty easy back there. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Alligator File Photo / David CarrJunior Hannah Rogers pitches during Floridas 3-2 victory against Auburn on April 13 at Pressly Stadium.

After going 2-6 in singles and 1-3 in doubles, the England product has bounced back during the dual meet season. Johnson has become a reliable starter for the Gators, showing that he can earn victories for an inexperienced team. With his victory against Furmans Richard Casagrande on Sunday, Johnson improved his singles record to 3-1. He is 2-0 in doubles. Im glad to see [Johnson] rebound and play disciplined, solid tennis and working his way Bryan Shelton said. Johnsons improved play at the net is paying dividends in doubles. Because Johnson plays in the advantage court, he does not serve and is at net the net during most points. Johnson has played with four different partners Mike Alford, Florent Diep, Billy Federhofer and Stephane Piro in four doubles matches this season. dins, Johnson helped win the doubles point for the Gators with an 8-4 victory against Furmans Jacob Behal and Casagrande. It was great to clinch the point, Johnson said. It was great momentum for us heading into singles play. Johnson played Sundays only closely contested match. set, winning 6-1. However, Casagrande battled back, winning the second set by clinching the tiebreaker for a 7-6 (5) win. But Johnson regained momentum, taking the deciding 10-point tiebreaker (10-5) and securing the Gators third sweep of the season. He lost a little bit of focus in the second set, Shelton said.
