Registration for the trip begins at 10 a.m. Feb. 13 and is open to all Jewish students. ABOUT 15O STUDENTS ARE NEEDED FOR THE PROGRAM. MICHELLE LEUTEAlligator Contributing WriterSara Kaner knows what its like to struggle with her weight. I never weighed myself, Kaner said. I didnt want to know. The 21-year-old UF public relations senior played two sports in high school in addition to constant workouts. Her mother even cooked for her. When she came to college and had to schedule her own workouts and eat on a meal plan, her weight gradually increased. A new program is starting to help students like Kaner. Kristen Medina, a doctoral student in clinical and health psychology, has started a new weight gain prevention program in the UF Weight Management Lab as her dissertation. She said the programs purpose is to help students develop better eating and exercising habits. She got the idea when one of the girls in the Weight Management Lab did a similar study. graduate freshmen, sophomores and juniors to participate in the program. The free program will last about 10 weeks, but participants must be fulltime students. She is also trying to recruit about 10 research assistants trained in weight management to help her with the program. The program already has some student responses. Every research project has its own challenges, Medina said. We will just wait and see. Medina has worked on similar projects with adults in rural communities, which the lab mainly focuses on. She said she is trying to tailor this new program to college students. Were trying to make it applicable to their lifestyle, she said. Dorothy Berry, a 20-year-old UF zoology sophomore, said she didnt gain weight when she got to college she lost it. Despite that, Berry said she knows cant amount of weight. She thinks the program is a great idea. Berry said she believes a lot of people rely on their parents for nutritional value. When people come to college and have so many unhealthy options, its easy to gain weight, she said. Or, as 19-year-old Zachary SorrenThe UF physics sophomore said his roommates drink alcohol frequently, and the calorie count adds up.

However, if the route is added, it would bring more patrons, which could clog the usually full waiting and dining areas and restrooms, she said. She said the airport is conducting a study this year to explore expansion of the terminal to accommodate higher foot Our terminal is full. So now, our focus really becomes on adding a destination, she said. Maybe not a new airline, but a service. Kelsey Reese, a 21-year-old UF marketing senior and UF Career Resource Center intern, said could open up better avenues for both job-seeking students and out-of-state employers who seek new hires. It makes it easier for the employers to visit Gainesville and talk to students about internships, she said, and it gives students more opportunity to get internships that arent in Gainesville.

For me, its that sense of convenience. NYC, from page 1 ANDREW KAYSAlligator Contributing Writer Executive Board decided Wednesday morning to postpone until May its decision about changing its policy on allowing gay members into scout troops nationwide. The Boy Scouts policy doesnt allow gay members and leaders into the organization. The proposed change would leave the decision to individual troop charter holders about whether to accept gay members and leaders into their troops. In the past two weeks, Scouting has received an outpouring of feedback from the American public, said BSA national spokesman Deron Smith in a statement. It reinforces how deeply people care about Scouting and how passionate they are about the organization. Eagle Scout Justin Bickford, board member and communications director for Scouts for Equality, said the change would be a step in the right direction. positive effect, he said. Short term, a lot of people are going to be upset they have to make the decision themselves. In 2000, the organization won a case in the U.S. Supreme Court that allowed discrimination of sexuality if it is expressed as the organizations public or private viewpoint. ban on gay members and has since faced national backlash. Sponsors, including United Way, UPS and Intel, have pulled funding. About 2.7 million boys participate in BSA. Of the more than 100,000 scouting units owned and operated by chartered organizations, nearly 70 percent do so through a religious organizations charter. Educational organizations support about 8 percent, partly as a result of the Scouts discriminatory policy, said Joseph Jackson, a UF professor of legal skills and a former Scout. Jackson said he believes that social attitudes have become more accepting and tolerant of people with different sexual orientations. I would foresee there would be greater pressure to enact a more equal national policy down the road, he said. Austin Reed, a 20-year-old UF biochemistry junior, became an Eagle Scout in 2006. He said he believes that Boy Scouts should be open to all males, regardless of their sexual orientation. I believe its not our place, or the Boy Scouts place, to discriminate against anybody because it is an all-male group or anything, he said. Whatever decision is reached, the result is going to be a lot of people with lots of feeling and emotion about whether it is the right one.Boy Scouts postpone decision to accept gay members, leaders Whatever decision is reached, the result is going to be a lot of people with lots of feeling and emotion about whether it is the right one.Austin ReedUF biochemistry junior

According to her post Watching Beyoncs halftime show with kids raised eyebrows, questions, Rachel CamposDuffy, Today Moms blogger and former The Real World cast member, observed her childrens bewildered reactions to the Super Bowl halftime show and, rather than change the channel and ignore her kids questions like a normal adult, tried to make it a teachable moment. I nonchalantly said, This isnt very pretty or empowering. Too bad shes wasting her talent. My 8 year old declared, She looks weird. Indeed. Campos-Duffy said she then tweeted the following: Tired of NFL & Obamas holding Beyonce up as role model 4 girls. Totally slutty halftime show. Thanks for empowering our girls! Campos-Duffy maintained that other Twitter moms echoed her concerns with the halftime show and that she is not a prude. I have many issues with Campos-Duffys pearl-clutching criticisms, and not just that her only supporting quote is from her 8-year-old son (who is learning at an early age that its OK to mock womens appearances if you dont agree with their artistic choices). My most pressing issue, however, is how this concerned mother so easily tears down Beyoncs indisputably powerful performance in fewer than 140 characters, yet didnt mention the endless spew of Go Daddy commercials, which viewers have suffered through for years. I dont know what kind of moron is offended by Beyoncs muscular thighs but not 10-second bites of soft-core porn during every other commercial break. How misguided can you be to let your kids watch a model play tonsil hockey with a pockmarked nerd and say nothing, but the second a wildly talented, successful female everyone how slutty she is? Beyonc has sold 75 million records and won 16 Grammys. Her thighs could crush a grown mans head. She is at the helm of her own empire, and she could do what I want since she was 30, she told GQ in a recent interview. Her manic-perfectionist discipline with her career is nothing short of admirable. So why is she being reduced to a slutty halftime show by every mommy with a superiority complex and a Twitter? Such is the nature of our York Magazine writer Ariel Levy in her book Female Chauvinist Pigs, about the rise of modern medias cartoonish portrait of female sexuality and the men and women who Female chauvinist pigs dont bother to question the criteria on which women are judged, Levy writes. They are too busy judging other women themselves. Female chauvinist pigs, women like Campos-Duffy who being in command of their sexuality while ignoring the larger, tougher issue of men commanding womens sexuality. uality. Theres nothing cartoonish or contrived about her. After reading every magazine article and watching every TV feature, one can rest assured that the Beyonc on stage at the halftime show Sunday was 100 percent Sasha Fierce. Unlike the Go Daddy commercials, there is no man in the background pulling the strings to sell a product. I will make a bold claim and say that, in the modern music industry, Beyonc is the highest authority on female empowerment. onto a parent. However, if you want to seriously educate your children on female empowerment, dont persecute successful women who happen to use sex as art. Persecute those who use false ideals of female sexuality to sell technology services. Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays.Postal Swerve: uh ohThe U.S. Postal Service took another major step in its battle USA Today. This is terrible news. There are only so many days in the week on which our mail system can bail. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the service reduction is expected to save $2 billion annually, according to the article. We suppose the USPS is running out of ways to make money, right? Were all using email so much that we only use the USPS to ship big packages; we havent invented that technology yet. Its irresponsible for us not to pursue this course, he said at an announcement at postal service headquarters in LEnfant Plaza, according to a Washington Post article. Its too big of a cost savings to ignore. We should try to keep the USPS around for as long as possible. Its a part of our societys infrastructure that keeps life moving forward at a responsible pace. Without it, society might collapse. No mail system? No more roads. No more tolls. No more milk bottles delivered to our front doors. No more free Wi-Fi in fast food restaurants. No more email. See where were going with this? Good thing another postal service is coming back to help us through these trying times. The Postal Service, the synth-pop duo of Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, is reuniting for the 10th anniversary of its only album, 2003s Give Up, according to an article on Billboards website. Thats right, folks. Your favorite indie band from high school is making a comeback. Just like Destinys Child, Justin Timberlake and the Spice Girls. generation to be happy. Lord knows we havent been happy in quite a while. Maybe getting rid of a day of mail delivery and pickup wont be so bad after all. Our favorite things are all reuniting to cheer us up! All we need now are some DunkAroos and some clear Pepsi to keep us going until everyone who should be reunited is, in fact, reunited. According to an article in Octobers Spinner, Ben Gibbard promised there wouldnt be a new Postal Service record. There are no plans to make a second record, Gibbard told Spinner. I cant say that enough. The band is planning to release only a deluxe record of its at Coachella. We need this, guys. Think of the USPS workers. They need this, too. Just imagine them listening to Such Great Heights when theyre packing up to head home Friday evening, but the poppier version, not the one covered by Iron & Wine. Keep your spirits up, USPS! Maybe all six days of your service will eventually be reunited. You might have to wait a whole decade, though. Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

Animal adoption: the hottest accessory ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue Writer emo movement from 2005-2006, youd know that the reemergence of era leaders Fall Out Boy last week caused an interweb riot, to say the least. But before you rummage through your closet for your Hot Topic skinnys, lets think this over. Sure, Fall Out Boy has made some great music that got us through the awkward middle school years. However, will this type of music be able to withstand todays music industry that has not only moved onto more electronic-fueled sales, but generally seems to hold artist comebacks at an arms length? The Pros: New Stuff The new material (which was announced Monday) is good seriously. If youre a FOB fan, this is what youve been waiting to hear. You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) is just as catchy as their old stuff. Plus its complete with a video featuring 2 Chainz. The Boys are up to their old tricks, mixing their fast-paced pop-rock with visible nods to their supposed street cred in the biz. Along with the single, the band announced a new record, Save Rock and Roll, and a coinciding summer tour. Die-hard fans who have waited for fresh tracks shouldnt be disappointed this is exactly what the band did three years ago. The Cons: New Stuff All of these announcements which bassist Pete Wentz had been adamantly denying in the press up until the release date should be taken with caution. Theres no telling how well the new material will be embraced by the industry. As much as we might not want to admit it, thats just how it works. Todays music business seems to be dominated by electropop fusion artists. Its a trend, just like emo rock was in the mid-2000s. What makes this all tricky for FOB is how the band will maneuver the new trends. Lots of artists trying to make Im not saying Fall Out Boy wont be successful, but in a out a way to make its old sounds new again.Fall Out Boy Wentz, now its backz: Why you should (and shouldnt) care Wentz

This new tune is part of JTs upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, which is set to drop March 19, according to Billboard.com. But, of course, JT could never drop an album and just let it be. This project also involves a style collaboration with suit designer Tom Ford. After all, his single is all about, well, being clad in a suit and tie. Timberlake wore the designer head-to-toe at the SAG Awards and a custom-designed suit at his wedding to Jessica Biel in October. The artwork for the single features a Tom Ford tuxedo, shirt and satin bow tie. As part of his grand re-entrance into music, Timberlake will perform at the Grammy Awards Sunday. Chances are he will per form his new single while wearing a suit and tie. But the thing is, I dont think this song is Grammy-wor thy. I love JT and his many talents, but his time in music is up. The song has a very odd intro, and the rest of the song hurts to listen to. It is overly auto-tuned, monotonous and outright bad. Hes trying way too hard, and it shows. The lyrics are simple and dont mean much. Jay-Z is a rap god, and even he couldnt save this song from being terrible. All these big announcements and moves make me think he knew how awful this song was, and he needed to distract his fans. Poor Timberlake. He is like the Will Schuester of the music industry a man in his 30s still trying to make it big and perform on stage. Just like Mr. Schue needs to give up the awkward solos and dance pieces he does in Glee, JT should move past the music industry. JT is a great actor and businessman, but Im doubtful music is still his thing. He already brought sexy back in 2006, but only time will tell if he can do it again.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2013 CHAD FURST and COURTNEY VICTORIAAlligator Contributing WritersA salad a day keeps heart disease away. Vegetarians are 32 percent less likely to be hospitalized or die from heart disease than nonvegetarians, according to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers at the University of Oxford in England found that the lower risk of heart disease for vegetarians is likely due to their lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels compared to meat and The study followed 44,561 par ticipants, 34 percent of whom have been vegetarian for more than 10 years. Mitchell Knutson, a UF associate professor of nutritional biochemistry and 30-year vegetarian, said he wasnt surprised by the results. Being a vegetarian will decrease your risk of many diseases: heart disease, cancer, obesity, he said. Jerry MacDougall, manager and owner of Harvest Health & Whole Foods in Alachua, said hes been a vegetarian since 1972. He said eating a meatless diet helps cut down on cholesterol and fat intake. A lot of the clogging of the arter ies comes from meat-based proteins, he said. Patty Alvarenga, a 20-year-old UF marketing sophomore, said she became a vegetarian in 2012 after she became concerned with her family history of high cholesterol. I have high cholesterol and demy diet and then, everything else just followed, she said. I know that Im contributing to my future health. While vegetarians can rejoice eaters arent convinced. Although Lindsay Patenaude, a 20-year-old UF psychology and business administration junior, knows that heart disease is a serious matter, she said she wouldnt give up meat. Theres other ways to combat heart disease, she said. I can exercise to keep my heart healthy. While some students cant cut the carnivorous habit, Gainesville food shops such as Reggae Shack Cafe, The Top and Civilization support the lifestyle by highlighting meat-free options on their menus. UF was also named the secondmost vegan-friendly large university by PETAs Most Vegan-Friendly college contest in 2011, according to Alligator archives. Karma Cream, an organic ice cream cafe, 1025 W University Ave., labels items in the food shop that are vegetarianand veganfriendly to help customers with dietary restrictions.

Im not sure about the best places to bang on worst places: on the blanket where the people at Krishna lunch sing, any bike lane, a live lecture recording, next to the guy on Turlington who yells at the sinners and holds the JESUS SAVES sign, with anyone who is trying to hand you a pamphlet, and if its same-sex Dear Mediocre Advice, I know you are unadventurous when it comes to threesomes, but what do you think are the best places to bang on campus? JENNIFER HERNANDEZAvenue Contributing WriterWhen 19-year-old Nicola Gregory visited tapes its customers running to determine the best shoe for their bodies movements. They put you on a treadmill and see your running, said Gregory, a UF advertising freshman and avid runner. They saw the form that I run in and found a shoe that helped my knees and legs. An infographic created for Greatist, a the Right Shoe for Any Type of Exercise, illustrates footwear options for different workouts. Whether its an initiative to stay active in the new year or a preparation for Spring on the type of shoe people slip into. When looking for a running shoe, the graphic suggests something with stability, a stiffer heel, arch support and a cushion that provides shock absorption. Dr. Scott Koppel specializes in conditions of the foot and ankle at Gainesvilles Family Podiatry and Vein Care. He said a person needs more support than what the foot can give naturally when running on cement. You need a shoe thats going to hold your foot in place and provide you with more support to cradle the arch, he said. Nicholas Lietz, 21, is a manager at the Fit2Run in The Oaks Mall and a UF biology senior. He said the main thing to remember when buying running shoes is your mileage. For strength and conditioning programs, like CrossFit, Lietz recommends Inov-8s F-Lite or Bare-XF sneakers, which include guards on the inside of the shoe to prevent ropeburn. If you enjoy biking or spinning, Greatist recommends a shoe that breathes and has hard soles so that it doesnt slip off the pedals. Hikers should choose between sandals, which breathe better and put less pressure on feet, or a variety of ankle-cut boots suitable for different types of hiking excursions. Deme Panos, a 22-year-old UF wildlife ecology and conservation senior and a leader for TRiP, the Travel and Recreation Program at UF, recommends Vasque boots, because they are durable and give ankle support, or Chaco sandals, because they are easy to walk in. For weightlifting, being barefoot can strengthen muscles and gives the body stability. Some gyms dont allow this because of sanitation concerns, so minimalist shoes give No matter what your physical activity is, enhance your performance and protect your self from injury with comfortable and appropriate footwear.Sole search: Finding the right footwear for your exercise needs Not all shoes are crafted equal

Hargreaves, though talented, will have to compete for playing time next season. Florida returns Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy and Jaylen Watkins the top three cornerbacks on the depth chart.

LUCIE In the gymnasium at St. Lucie West Centennial High, three hats Miami, Florida and Alabama sat on a table in front of senior Jay-nard Bostwick. Though Bostwick appeared undecided, his mind was already made up. Bostwick picked up the blue Gators cap, put it on and proceeded to sign his letter of intent to play football for coach Will Muschamp. I really narrowed it down last night, Bostwick said. I thought about the [Southeastern Conference] and the opportunity I had with the Gators. I knew that theyre a competitive team and probably have a good chance to go to another bowl game. he didnt have much experience playing football. The defensive tackle had only played a few games for the Port St. Lucie Athletic Association Youth Football Program during his eighth-grade year before suffering a lower back injury. Bostwick possessed raw talent, and Centennial coach Ron Parker saw potential. Bostwicks positive attitude and energy helped him become just the second player in Centennial history to play varsity football as a freshman. Parker never regretted the decision. The biggest thing I told the scouts is, He doesnt take plays off in practice, Parker said. My son had to line up against [Bostwick] last year. He turned around and looked at me, and I through the air. But Jay-nards a very respectful player. Hell knock you down, pick you up and just be ready for the next play. As a junior, Bostwick recorded 74 tackles, including seven tackles for a loss and two sacks. Bostwick hoped to put up even bigger numbers during his senior campaign, but Parker made a decision that hurt Bostwicks stats. I dismissed a starting defensive end on the other side because he didnt do what he was supposed to do, Parker said. So, Jay-nard had to move around a lot. We put him in the middle, theyd run outside. We put him on the edge, theyd run to the other side. So, it was frustrating. Still, Bostwick tallied 73 tackles with seven tackles for a loss during a 1-8 season. Bostwick 15 tackles for a loss, three sacks and one fumble recovery. he never thought he would continue playing past high school. But the four-star recruits talents quickly earned him recognition and scholarship offers to 19 colleges. Bostwick then narrowed his list down to six. After cutting Michigan State, Oklahoma and Oregon, only three remained. three eliminated. Bostwick didnt want to attend school out of state. The decision between the Hurricanes and the Gators proved tough for the senior. Bostwick has strong family ties to Miami. His cousin, Thurston Armbrister, is a UM linebacker. Although Bostwick calls Miami home, he put family ties aside and picked UF. I just knew [Florida] had the facilities to take care of me, Bostwick said. Everyone assured me that theyd be by my side the whole way through, and I know that I have a good opportunity to have early playing time. Its in the SEC, so I had to go where theres the best competition. Muschamp added: Jay-nard was a young man that really came down to three schools, and we were real pleased to get him here on the last visit. He had a great visit, and we felt very comfortable. Travaris Robinson did a great job recruiting him throughout the entire process. With Sharrif Floyd and Omar Hunter gone from Floridas roster, Bostwick will join a host of Gators competing for time at defensive tackle. Bostwick will battle Leon Orr, Darious Cummings, Caleb Brantley, Damien Jacobs and Dominique Easley to play inside. I cant guarantee nothing, and they told me that they cant guarantee me nothing, but they said I have a really good chance of playing freshman year, Bostwick said.

MICHELLE LEUTEAlligator Contributing WriterSara Kaner knows what its like to struggle with her weight. I never weighed myself, Kaner said. I didnt want to know. The 21-year-old UF public relations senior played two sports in high school in addition to constant workouts. Her mother even cooked for her. When she came to college and had to schedule her own workouts and eat on a meal plan, her weight gradually increased. A new program is starting to help students like Kaner. Kristen Medina, a doctoral student in clinical and health psychology, has started a new weight gain prevention program in the UF Weight Management Lab as her dissertation. She said the programs purpose is to help students develop better eating and exercising habits. She got the idea when one of the girls in the Weight Management Lab did a similar study. graduate freshmen, sophomores and juniors to participate in the program. The free program will last about 10 weeks, but participants must be fulltime students. She is also trying to recruit about 10 research assistants trained in weight management to help her with the program. The program already has some student responses. Every research project has its own challenges, Medina said. We will just wait and see. Medina has worked on similar projects with adults in rural communities, which the lab mainly focuses on. She said she is trying to tailor this new program to college students. Were trying to make it applicable to their lifestyle, she said. Dorothy Berry, a 20-year-old UF zoology sophomore, said she didnt gain weight when she got to college she lost it. Despite that, Berry said she knows cant amount of weight. She thinks the program is a great idea. Berry said she believes a lot of people rely on their parents for nutritional value. When people come to college and have so many unhealthy options, its easy to gain weight, she said.

For me, its that sense of convenience. NYC, from page 1 ANDREW KAYSAlligator Contributing Writer Executive Board decided Wednesday morning to postpone until May its decision about changing its policy on allowing gay members into scout troops nationwide. The Boy Scouts policy doesnt allow gay members and leaders into the organization. The proposed change would leave the decision to individual troop charter holders about whether to accept gay members and leaders into their troops. In the past two weeks, Scouting has received an outpouring of feedback from the American public, said BSA national spokesman Deron Smith in a statement. It reinforces how deeply people care about Scouting and how passionate they are about the organization. Eagle Scout Justin Bickford, board member and communications director for Scouts for Equality, said the change would be a step in the right direction. positive effect, he said. Short term, a lot of people are going to be upset they have to make the decision themselves. In 2000, the organization won a case in the U.S. Supreme Court that allowed discrimi nation of sexuality if it is expressed as the organizations public or private viewpoint. ban on gay members and has since faced national backlash. Sponsors, including United Way, UPS and Intel, have pulled funding. About 2.7 million boys participate in BSA. Of the more than 100,000 scouting units owned and operated by chartered organizations, nearly 70 percent do so through a religious organizations charter. Educational organizations support about 8 percent, partly as a result of the Scouts discriminatory policy, said Joseph Jackson, a UF professor of legal skills and a former Scout. Jackson said he believes that social attitudes have become more accepting and tolerant of people with different sexual orientations. I would foresee there would be greater pressure to enact a more equal national policy down the road, he said. Austin Reed, a 20-year-old UF biochemistry junior, became an Eagle Scout in 2006. He said he believes that Boy Scouts should be open to all males, regardless of their sexual orientation. I believe its not our place, or the Boy Scouts place, to discriminate against anybody because it is an all-male group or anything, he said. Whatever decision is reached, the result is going to be a lot of people with lots of feeling and emotion about whether it is the right one.Boy Scouts postpone decision to accept gay members, leaders Whatever decision is reached, the result is going to be a lot of people with lots of feeling and emotion about whether it is the right one.Austin ReedUF biochemistry junior

According to her post Watching Beyoncs halftime show with kids raised eyebrows, questions, Rachel CamposDuffy, Today Moms blogger and former The Real World cast member, observed her childrens bewildered reactions to the Super Bowl halftime show and, rather than change the channel and ignore her kids questions like a normal adult, tried to make it a teachable moment. I nonchalantly said, This isnt very pretty or empowering. Too bad shes wasting her talent. My 8 year old declared, She looks weird. Indeed. Campos-Duffy said she then tweeted the following: Tired of NFL & Obamas holding Beyonce up as role model 4 girls. Totally slutty halftime show. Thanks for empowering our girls! Campos-Duffy maintained that other Twitter moms echoed her concerns with the halftime show and that she is not a prude. I have many issues with Campos-Duffys pearl-clutching criticisms, and not just that her only supporting quote is from her 8-year-old son (who is learning at an early age that its OK to mock womens appearances if you dont agree with their artistic choices). My most pressing issue, however, is how this concerned mother so easily tears down Beyoncs indisputably powerful performance in fewer than 140 characters, yet didnt mention the endless spew of Go Daddy commercials, which viewers have suffered through for years. I dont know what kind of moron is offended by Beyoncs muscular thighs but not 10-second bites of soft-core porn during every other commercial break. How misguided can you be to let your kids watch a model play tonsil hockey with a pockmarked nerd and say nothing, but the second a wildly talented, successful female everyone how slutty she is? Beyonc has sold 75 million records and won 16 Grammys. Her thighs could crush a grown mans head. She is at the helm of her own empire, and she could do what I want since she was 30, she told GQ in a recent interview. Her manic-perfectionist discipline with her career is nothing short of admirable. So why is she being reduced to a slutty halftime show by every mommy with a superiority complex and a Twitter? Such is the nature of our York Magazine writer Ariel Levy in her book Female Chauvinist Pigs, about the rise of modern medias cartoonish portrait of female sexuality and the men and women who Female chauvinist pigs dont bother to question the criteria on which women are judged, Levy writes. They are too busy judging other women themselves. Female chauvinist pigs, women like Campos-Duffy who being in command of their sexuality while ignoring the larger, tougher issue of men commanding womens sexuality. uality. Theres nothing cartoonish or contrived about her. After reading every magazine article and watching every TV feature, one can rest assured that the Beyonc on stage at the halftime show Sunday was 100 percent Sasha Fierce. Unlike the Go Daddy commercials, there is no man in the background pulling the strings to sell a product. I will make a bold claim and say that, in the modern music industry, Beyonc is the highest authority on female empowerment. onto a parent. However, if you want to seriously educate your children on female empowerment, dont persecute successful women who happen to use sex as art. Persecute those who use false ideals of female sexuality to sell technology services. Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF.

Were all using email so much that we only use the USPS to ship big packages; we havent invented that technology yet. Its irresponsible for us not to pursue this course, he said at an announcement at postal service headquarters in LEnfant Plaza, according to a Washington Post article. Its too big of a cost savings to ignore. We should try to keep the USPS around for as long as possible. Its a part of our societys infrastructure that keeps life moving forward at a responsible pace. Without it, society might collapse. No mail system? No more roads. No more tolls. No more milk bottles delivered to our front doors. No more free Wi-Fi in fast food restaurants. No more email. See where were going with this? Good thing another postal service is coming back to help us through these trying times. The Postal Service, the synth-pop duo of Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, is reuniting for the 10th anniversary of its only album, 2003s Give Up, according to an article on Billboards website. Thats right, folks. Your favorite indie band from high school is making a comeback. Just like Destinys Child, Justin Timberlake and the Spice Girls. generation to be happy. Lord knows we havent been happy in quite a while. Maybe getting rid of a day of mail delivery and pickup wont be so bad after all. Our favorite things are all reuniting to cheer us up! All we need now are some DunkAroos and some clear Pepsi to keep us going until everyone who should be reunited is, in fact, reunited. According to an article in Octobers Spinner, Ben Gibbard promised there wouldnt be a new Postal Service record. There are no plans to make a second record, Gibbard told Spinner. I cant say that enough. The band is planning to release only a deluxe record of its at Coachella. We need this, guys. Think of the USPS workers. They need this, too. Just imagine them listening to Such Great Heights when theyre packing up to head home Friday evening, but the poppier version, not the one covered by Iron & Wine. Keep your spirits up, USPS! Maybe all six days of your service will eventually be reunited. You might have to wait a whole decade, though. Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

The models will carry rabbits in pretty totes, but not because theyre cute and petite. home. The third annual Runways and Rescues fashion show, created by Jacquelyn Brooks of Jacquelyn Brooks Designs, will incorporate adoptable animals with fashion to promote the animal rescues and two fashion lines. This semiformal, pink-carpet event will be from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at Haile Plantation Country Club, 9905 SW 44th Ave. Participants can sip champagne, take photographs in front of Hollywood-inspired backdrops, chow down on a dinner at the clubhouse and watch the models glide down the runway in smoky s-inspired attire. I thought itd be nice to have something a little more upscale for pets, Brooks said. A lot of formal charity events are health-related.

Were completely honored that Jacquelyn picked us, said Ann-Marie Brown, adoption coordinator of Gold Coast Greyhound Adoptions. We dont get a tremendous amount of publicity. There will be six to eight adoptable greyhounds and several rabbits in the show. All except one animal that participated in last years show were adopted. Its going to be really hard to get through this event without adopting one, said Brooks, who owns a dog, JoJo, and two cats, Maverick and Tucker. Heather Jones, a model in last years show, said she struggles with the same thing. I just wanted to adopt all of the dogs, said the 28-year-old who will model in the show again this year. She also owns a miniature poodle named Benjamin. I was in heaven. The models will meet the animals Saturday to get acquainted with them before the show. Jones said she is excited to work with They dont have the puppyhood that normal dogs have. Theyre treated like professional athletes, Brown said. Its neat because theyre getting new puppy experiences. And its going to be really neat to see all the fashion that Jacquelyn put together. Both organizations will set up booths for people interested in adopting the soon-to-be glamor ized animals. I always love seeing the animals, Brooks said. Its a lot like planning a wedding kind of stressful, but its a lot of fun. Online sales ended Monday, but general admission tickets can be purchased at the door for $45.

Animal adoption: the hottest accessory ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue Writer emo movement from 2005-2006, youd know that the reemergence of era leaders Fall Out Boy last week caused an interweb riot, to say the least. But before you rummage through your closet for your Hot Topic skinnys, lets think this over. Sure, Fall Out Boy has made some great music that got us through the awkward middle school years. However, will this type of music be able to withstand todays music industry that has not only moved onto more electronic-fueled sales, but generally seems to hold artist comebacks at an arms length? The Pros: New Stuff The new material (which was announced Monday) is good seriously. If youre a FOB fan, this is what youve been waiting to hear. You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) is just as catchy as their old stuff. Plus its complete with a video featuring 2 Chainz. The Boys are up to their old tricks, mixing their fast-paced pop-rock with visible nods to their supposed street cred in the biz. Along with the single, the band announced a new record, Save Rock and Roll, and a coinciding summer tour. Die-hard fans who have waited for fresh tracks shouldnt be disappointed this is exactly what the band did three years ago. The Cons: New Stuff All of these announcements which bassist Pete Wentz had been adamantly denying in the press up until the release date should be taken with caution. Theres no telling how well the new material will be embraced by the industry. As much as we might not want to admit it, thats just how it works. Todays music business seems to be dominated by electropop fusion artists. Its a trend, just like emo rock was in the mid-2000s. What makes this all tricky for FOB is how the band will maneuver the new trends. Lots of artists trying to make Im not saying Fall Out Boy wont be successful, but in a out a way to make its old sounds new again.Fall Out Boy Wentz, now its backz: Why you should (and shouldnt) care Wentz

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 ANGELA SKANEAvenue Contributing Writer crying a river. Justin Timberlake is back. solo single, Suit & Tie, in almost seven years this month. This new tune is part of JTs upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, which is set to drop March 19, according to Billboard.com. But, of course, JT could never drop an album and just let it be. This project also involves a style collaboration with suit designer Tom Ford. After all, his single is all about, well, being clad in a suit and tie. Timberlake wore the designer head-to-toe at the SAG Awards and a custom-designed suit at his wedding to Jessica Biel in October. The artwork for the single features a Tom Ford tuxedo, shirt and satin bow tie. As part of his grand re-entrance into music, Timberlake will perform at the Grammy Awards Sunday. Chances are he will per form his new single while wearing a suit and tie. But the thing is, I dont think this song is Grammy-wor thy. I love JT and his many talents, but his time in music is up. The song has a very odd intro, and the rest of the song hurts to listen to. It is overly auto-tuned, monotonous and outright bad. Hes trying way too hard, and it shows. The lyrics are simple and dont mean much. Jay-Z is a rap god, and even he couldnt save this song from being terrible. All these big announcements and moves make me think he knew how awful this song was, and he needed to distract his fans. Poor Timberlake. He is like the Will Schuester of the music industry a man in his 30s still trying to make it big and perform on stage. Just like Mr. Schue needs to give up the awkward solos and dance pieces he does in Glee, JT should move past the music industry. JT is a great actor and businessman, but Im doubtful music is still his thing. He already brought sexy back in 2006, but only time will tell if he can do it again.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2013 CHAD FURST and COURTNEY VICTORIAAlligator Contributing WritersA salad a day keeps heart disease away. Vegetarians are 32 percent less likely to be hospitalized or die from heart disease than nonvegetarians, according to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers at the University of Oxford in England found that the lower risk of heart disease for vegetarians is likely due to their lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels compared to meat and The study followed 44,561 par ticipants, 34 percent of whom have been vegetarian for more than 10 years. Mitchell Knutson, a UF associate professor of nutritional biochemistry and 30-year vegetarian, said he wasnt surprised by the results. Being a vegetarian will decrease your risk of many diseases: heart disease, cancer, obesity, he said. Jerry MacDougall, manager and owner of Harvest Health & Whole Foods in Alachua, said hes been a vegetarian since 1972. He said eating a meatless diet helps cut down on cholesterol and fat intake. A lot of the clogging of the arter ies comes from meat-based proteins, he said. Patty Alvarenga, a 20-year-old UF marketing sophomore, said she became a vegetarian in 2012 after she became concerned with her family history of high cholesterol. I have high cholesterol and demy diet and then, everything else just followed, she said. I know that Im contributing to my future health. While vegetarians can rejoice eaters arent convinced. Although Lindsay Patenaude, a 20-year-old UF psychology and business administration junior, knows that heart disease is a serious matter, she said she wouldnt give up meat. Theres other ways to combat heart disease, she said. I can exercise to keep my heart healthy. While some students cant cut the carnivorous habit, Gainesville food shops such as Reggae Shack Cafe, The Top and Civilization support the lifestyle by highlighting meat-free options on their menus. UF was also named the secondmost vegan-friendly large university by PETAs Most Vegan-Friendly college contest in 2011, according to Alligator archives. Karma Cream, an organic ice cream cafe, 1025 W University Ave., labels items in the food shop that are vegetarianand veganfriendly to help customers with dietary restrictions. Pretty much every restaurant has a lot of options, said Kyle Fick, co-owner of Karma Cream. Its all about choices.Vegetarianism lowers risk of disease CBS CONFIRMED A FINAL SEASON JAN. 30.

The guy youve been seeing has been on board with this idea since he learned what the real use for socks and banana peels are. You do not need to worry about scaring him off with your outrageous demand. Dear Mediocre Advice, Ive been dating this guy for about a month, but all we do is make out. How do I let him know I want to take things to the next level without being too aggressive? Dear Friend, Many have decided Valentines Day is a curse on humanity. So, you may not get the teddy bear you dread so much. I have an idea that will be a gift for both of you. Tell him not to get you anything. He wont have to stroll the aisles of CVS looking for what he thinks summarizes your relationship. Whatever you ure that if he gets you a dancing tiger that lights up and sings, Hero, by Enrique Iglesias, then hes crazy about you. But if he gets you a box of chocolates that look thoughtless, youll think he doesnt care about you. All you need are rose petals needs for the week. Make love, not accusations about the future of your relationship. Dear Mediocre Advice, How do I hint to my boyfriend that I dont want a tacky ted dy bear for Valentines Day without sounding like a b---h? Dear not-my-friend, I think you meant realistic when you said unadventurous. Im not sure about the best places to bang on worst places: on the blanket where the people at Krishna lunch sing, any bike lane, a live lecture recording, next to the guy on Turlington who yells at the sinners and holds the JESUS SAVES sign, with anyone who is trying to hand you a pamphlet, and if its same-sex Dear Mediocre Advice, I know you are unadventurous when it comes to threesomes, but what do you think are the best places to bang on campus? JENNIFER HERNANDEZAvenue Contributing WriterWhen 19-year-old Nicola Gregory visited tapes its customers running to determine the best shoe for their bodies movements. They put you on a treadmill and see your running, said Gregory, a UF advertising freshman and avid runner. They saw the form that I run in and found a shoe that helped my knees and legs. An infographic created for Greatist, a the Right Shoe for Any Type of Exercise, illustrates footwear options for different workouts. Whether its an initiative to stay active in the new year or a preparation for Spring on the type of shoe people slip into. When looking for a running shoe, the graphic suggests something with stability, a stiffer heel, arch support and a cushion that provides shock absorption. Dr. Scott Koppel specializes in conditions of the foot and ankle at Gainesvilles Family Podiatry and Vein Care. He said a person needs more support than what the foot can give naturally when running on cement. You need a shoe thats going to hold your foot in place and provide you with more support to cradle the arch, he said. Nicholas Lietz, 21, is a manager at the Fit2Run in The Oaks Mall and a UF biology senior. He said the main thing to remember when buying running shoes is your mileage. For strength and conditioning programs, like CrossFit, Lietz recommends Inov-8s F-Lite or Bare-XF sneakers, which include guards on the inside of the shoe to prevent ropeburn. If you enjoy biking or spinning, Greatist recommends a shoe that breathes and has hard soles so that it doesnt slip off the pedals. Hikers should choose between sandals, which breathe better and put less pressure on feet, or a variety of ankle-cut boots suitable for different types of hiking excursions. Deme Panos, a 22-year-old UF wildlife ecology and conservation senior and a leader for TRiP, the Travel and Recreation Program at UF, recommends Vasque boots, because they are durable and give ankle support, or Chaco sandals, because they are easy to walk in. For weightlifting, being barefoot can strengthen muscles and gives the body stability. Some gyms dont allow this because of sanitation concerns, so minimalist shoes give No matter what your physical activity is, enhance your performance and protect your self from injury with comfortable and appropriate footwear.Sole search: Finding the right footwear for your exercise needs Not all shoes are crafted equal

Despite receiving more than 40 scholarship offers and countless inquiries about his interest in other programs, he never second-guessed his decision. If you can make a decision and go with it, now there is never going to be a question about what you are doing, Hargreaves II said. Im glad that happened. We are excited for him and about him. Hargreaves, though talented, will have to compete for playing time next season. Florida returns Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy and Jaylen Watkins the top three cornerbacks on the depth chart. The Gators also have Cody Riggs, who missed the season due to a fracture in his right foot. But Hargreaves gravitates toward competition rather than notoriety.

Recruiting consultants garner thousands of dollars from universities. The bigger the business, the bigger NSD becomes. For the Southeastern Confer ence, NSD is another chance to exert its dominance. SEC teams hauled in six of the top 10 classes. Ole Miss created Twitter chaos by nabbing the top defensive end, offensive tackle and wide receiver in the Class of 2013. Cant blame players wanting to snap up the chance for a starring role in The Blind Side 2 over receiving a face full of angry Muschamp. Alabama signed a second elite running back to go with incoming back Derrick Henry, the top rusher in high school history.

LUCIE In the gymnasium at St. Lucie West Centennial High, three hats Miami, Florida and Alabama sat on a table in front of senior Jay-nard Bostwick. Though Bostwick appeared undecided, his mind was already made up. Bostwick picked up the blue Gators cap, put it on and proceeded to sign his letter of intent to play football for coach Will Muschamp. I really narrowed it down last night, Bostwick said. I thought about the [Southeastern Conference] and the opportunity I had with the Gators. I knew that theyre a competitive team and probably have a good chance to go to another bowl game. he didnt have much experience playing football. The defensive tackle had only played a few games for the Port St. Lucie Athletic Association Youth Football Program during his eighth-grade year before suffering a lower back injury. Bostwick possessed raw talent, and Centennial coach Ron Parker saw potential. Bostwicks positive attitude and energy helped him become just the second player in Centennial history to play varsity football as a freshman. Parker never regretted the decision. The biggest thing I told the scouts is, He doesnt take plays off in practice, Parker said. My son had to line up against [Bostwick] last year. He turned around and looked at me, and I through the air. But Jay-nards a very respectful player. Hell knock you down, pick you up and just be ready for the next play. As a junior, Bostwick recorded 74 tackles, including seven tackles for a loss and two sacks. Bostwick hoped to put up even bigger numbers during his senior campaign, but Parker made a decision that hurt Bostwicks stats. I dismissed a starting defensive end on the other side because he didnt do what he was supposed to do, Parker said. So, Jay-nard had to move around a lot. We put him in the middle, theyd run outside. We put him on the edge, theyd run to the other side. So, it was frustrating. Still, Bostwick tallied 73 tackles with seven tackles for a loss during a 1-8 season. Bostwick 15 tackles for a loss, three sacks and one fumble recovery. he never thought he would continue playing past high school. But the four-star recruits talents quickly earned him recognition and scholarship offers to 19 colleges. Bostwick then narrowed his list down to six. After cutting Michigan State, Oklahoma and Or egon, only three remained. three eliminated. Bostwick didnt want to attend school out of state. The decision between the Hurricanes and the Gators proved tough for the senior. Bostwick has strong family ties to Miami. His cousin, Thurston Armbrister, is a UM linebacker. Although Bostwick calls Miami home, he put family ties aside and picked UF. I just knew [Florida] had the facilities to take care of me, Bostwick said. Everyone assured me that theyd be by my side the whole way through, and I know that I have a good opportunity to have early playing time. Its in the SEC, so I had to go where theres the best competition. Muschamp added: Jay-nard was a young man that really came down to three schools, and we were real pleased to get him here on the last visit. He had a great visit, and we felt very comfortable. Travaris Robinson did a great job recruiting him throughout the entire process. With Sharrif Floyd and Omar Hunter gone from Floridas roster, Bostwick will join a host of Gators competing for time at defensive tackle. Bostwick will battle Leon Orr, Darious Cummings, Caleb Brantley, Damien Jacobs and Dominique Easley to play inside. I cant guarantee nothing, and they told me that they cant guarantee me nothing, but they said I have a really good chance of playing freshman year, Bostwick said.
