The email in question was sent by Leah Miller, a liaison between the Swamp Party and its fraternity house representatives for the upcoming SG election. It asks the 25 representatives to collect I Voted stickers from everyone in their rosters and supply the party with a $250 check. But UFs administration said the email is not under its purview. Because she didnt think it violated state laws or the Student Code of Conduct, Dean of Students and Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Jen Day Shaw said she referred the Students Party to take the complaint to the Election Commission.

Gators football player arrested by GPD on marijuana charge ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterThe U.S. Postal Service announced plans Wednesday to change its delivery system. It will liveries on Saturdays. The postal service said the new delivery schedule will include package delivery Monday through Saturday and mail delivery from Monday through Friday. The changes are planned to take effect beginning Aug. 5, according to a postal service press release. Carl Williams, senior postal manager of the UF mail distribution center, said the change wont have an effect on UF campus mail delivery because departments dont receive mail on Saturday. We will continue to do the dorm delivery on Saturday until we are told differently, he said, but at this point, nothing has been written that says it will affect the University of Florida in any way at this time. Williams said the center was informed of the possibility of schedule but wont be making any changes until it gets further instructions from the postal service. The decision comes as part of a postal service effort to reduce expenses. Last year, the postal service reported a $15.9 billion loss, according to the postal services inin November.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 KELSEY WONDERLINAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers participated in a six-year national project to create the most comprehensive tree of life to date for placental mammals, which are animals that bear live young. The study, published Thursday in the journal Science, contains data on about 4,500 characteristics of more than 80 species of placental mammals, said co-author Jonathan Bloch, associate curator of vertebrate paleontology at UFs Florida Museum of Natural History. The large database includes characteristics of animals teeth, skull, muscle, nerves, blood and behavior. My philosophy has always been, More data will always be better, he said. Bloch led the team responsible for coding primates, which includes humans and their fossil relatives. He explained one method of coding, which entails making simple individual observations about how animals physically look and then relating it to numbers. For example, if an animal has a big head, its assigned a zero. Shared characteristics show how various animals are related. Using living animals and fossils, researchers concluded that placeninto modern-looking animals after the extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago, Bloch said. This is contrary to older studies, which ar cation happened 80 to 90 million years ago and include only molecular data. Researchers used the tree of life to reconstruct an image of the common ancestor of placental mammals based on inferences, said co-author Mary Silcox, an assistant professor at the University of Toronto Scar borough. She said no fossil actually looks like the reconstructed image; its a hypothesis backed up by data that an artist turned into a picture. Discovering the tree of life is like piecing together a crime scene, said lead author and manager Maureen OLeary, an associate professor in the School of Medicine at Stony Brook University and research associate at the American Museum of Natural History. She said both processes aim to uncover what happened in the past using more than DNA. Researchers used an online program called MorphoBank that allowed them to view archived data from different locations. MorphoBank documented its ture Bloch said is crucial in passing the study to future scientists who could eventually incorporate all animals into the tree of life. Bloch also values the collaborative nature of the project. If you really want to approach a big question, you need lots of brains that really know what theyre talking about, he said. Together we were able to address the question in a bigger way than one person could alone.UF researchers help map tree of life THE SATURDAY EVENT COSTS $5.

Police charged Xavier Antowyn Gunn, 39, of 3600 Windmeadows Blvd., Apt. 120, with armed burglary, grand theft and possession of a concealed weapon by a convicted felon, spokesman. A surveillance video from the Jan. 2 burglary showed Gunn walking into the cafe at 4158 NW 13th Street wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, pulling out a gun and demanding money from cashier Courtney Hamilton. Hamilton, 21, gave the money to Gunn before he walked out of the cafe. During the investigation, detectives viewed another sur veillance video from before the burglary that showed Hamilton checking around the store to make sure the security guard and manager were not around and making a phone call before Gunn came in, Tobias said.

At least its back on TV, right? Have a safe week, and go Gators!I desecrated a national treasure over the weekend, and I enjoyed every second of it. That treasure was The Star-Spangled Banner. I recorded my attempt at it and failed spectacularly because I cant sing at all (ask anyone who was at the halftime show for the mens basketball game against Southeastern Louisiana; theyll tell you how bad I am.). There was something refreshing about doing something I knew I couldnt do well and doing it with gusto anyway. What about those who do have talent? Beyonc Knowles at the inauguration and Alicia Keys at the Suone can question that they have legitimate vocal skill when it comes to music. Can they be fairly accused of disrespecting the anthem? Beyonc caused a national stir when it was discovered that her singing was lip-synced. I was surprised to ing the anthem live was disrespectful. I thought it was the opposite; she didnt want to do disservice to a song we hold dear and therefore made plans to preserve the best possible performance. Keys version provoked a more common argument about the anthem, one that asserts there is a right and wrong way to sing it. On a technical argument, based on the actual notes of the song, I concede there is a correct way to sing the song. That way is also incredibly hard to sing perfectly, let alone in front of a demanding audience who will harp on a mistake the instant it happens. ferent amount of time, emphasizing different lines or shifting notes mid-word when traditionally there isnt one. People view this as an affront to the songs honor and integrity. So what? Covers of songs are released all the time that keep the words but change genres. My favorite example of this is the Punk Goes series, in which punk bands perform songs in their own style. The United States is a country that values personal freedom, individuality and hard work. The last of those is required to even be considered for the honor and the two are rights of the performer that we also recognize. Because of their talent, we allow the singers to impart their own style into the song, barring major alterations. Its just silly to me. Only one kind of patriotic display can be shown, and anything that doesnt match someones interpretation is offensive? If you do a quick Google Images search of the most featuring the World Trade Center, a bald eagle on a dog and a picture of the crew, Captain America, Hulk Hogan move from that collection, but Im not going to get up in arms about someones personal view of this awesome country. We have enough issues in the country to worry about; types of patriotic displays should not be one of them. If the national anthem sounds amazing even if it isnt what you expected, applaud the work. Those who get riled up over it show they care more about the pronunciation of the words over what those very words mean. Logan Ladnyk is a journalism junior at UF. His column runs on Fridays.Why?

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2013Adam Harrington / AlligatorGainesville City Commissioners discuss the current neighborhood parking decal system Thursday. They unanimously passed a resolution to explore options of raising parking permit prices. LOCa AL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterThe Gainesville City Commission voted Thursday afternoon to revamp the neighborhood parking decal program in neighborhoods around the UF campus area. The city unanimously passed a resolution to explore raising the price of city parking permits and developing demand management strategies. Gainesvilles Public Works department spokesman Jacob Kain said because the citys current parking permit system was established in 1981 to keep commuters from parking in neighborhoods, the pur pose of many residential areas such as University Heights and College Park has shifted. Single-family residences have shifted to communal housing for groups of students, which means more cars clogging the area, he said. Its put a drain on the available parking in the neighborhoods and has created frustration for residents. The current price for yearly neighborhood parking decals is $19.50 per year. The scarcity of parking has led to a decal black market, which has led many students to create their to skirt the system, said Bruce Delaney, a rental property manager who addressed the commission during a public comment section. Teresa Scott, director of Public Works, suggested requiring residents to pick up their decals in per son instead of completing the transaction solely online. Its one thing to lie to a computer but another to lie to a staff person in person, she said. City staff members recommended full responsibility for distributing parking permits should fall to the city. Staff also suggested raising the price of permits while starting the parking grace period earlier, on July 15 instead of Aug. 15. The issue will now go to the Community Development Committee for further evaluation. City Commission discusses raising parking permit prices CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterFacebook users are having an its complicated relationship with the social networking site. Sixty-seven percent of American adults who use the Internet are Facebook users. Of those, 61 percent report they have voluntarily taken a break of several weeks or longer from the website at some time in the past, according to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center as part of its Internet and American Life Project. The largest group of study participants said they stayed off Facebook as a result of being too busy with other demands or not having enough time to spend on the site. Other reasons included a general lack of interest in the site, excessive gossip from others or concerns they were spending too much time logged on. Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist, said he has never taken a conscious break from Facebook since he joined the site on July 13, 2005. Still, he is not fully surprised by the I suspect that some people have gotten fatigued by the inundation of the content from others, he said. Personally, I wouldnt be surprised if the recent political season has been the cause for a Facebook vacation. Steve Johnson, UFs visual production coordinator with the College of Journalism and Communications and co-instructor of a social media journalism class, attributes the Facebook breaks to the ongoing surge of social media. options, he said. It can be so demanding that it has a backlash effect. Johnson also suggested users may be getting bored with the site over time. Christine Flammia, a 19-year-old UF jour user, is among the majority of people who have put the site on hold at one point or another. When I go on vacation, I like to shut off electronics, she said. It can get very over whelming. Flammia said she is not surprised by the results because she knows a lot of people who have done the same thing. more Sean Wilson, who has been on Facebook for six years, said he doesnt see a need to log off for an extended period of time. I have enough self-control to not be on Facebook when Im trying to do homework, he said. He said he was shocked when he heard how many people have intentionally taken a break from the site.

An Asian airline is making that possible. AirAsia X, the long-haul arm of AirAsia, launched its Quiet Zone this week, banning Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Australia and Nepal. Although there is no additional charge for the Quiet Zone, passengers traveling with children under 12 are also not allowed to sit in the area, according to the airline. AirAsia X joined Malaysia Airlines, which and a child-free upper deck economy section. With the idea picking up in Asia, childfree sections on an airplane doesnt look like it will be making an appearance in North America anytime soon. American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller wrote in an email that the company doesnt have plans to do something similar. Kate Fogarty, UF associate professor of youth development, said business traveling is the only way airlines in the U.S. could justify child-free seating. Fogarty said work culture in the U.S. is not always family-friendly, adding that grocery stores and restaurants give subtle hints. Taking your kids to Walmart even though it seems like a family-friendly place there still are expectations, she said. About one-third of the respondents to a 2012 ABCNews.com poll said they would Margaret Yan, a 19-year-old UF business administration sophomore, said she travels often to Taiwan and would be willing to pay children.

CAITLIN RADDATZAlligator Contributing WriterUpchuck is never pleasant. Neither is diarrhea. Throw in some stomach pains and a fever, and it sounds like a textbook case of food poisoning. These symptoms, outlined by Mayo Clinic, are all too familiar for the estimated 48 million Americans who get sick, 128,000 who are hospitalized and 3,000 who die from foodborne diseases every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released information late last month about its 11-year study to determine what foods make people sick. list of the sources of foodborne illnesses acquired in the United States. The study, which was conducted from 1998 to 2008, showed illness was attributed to 17 different food categories. The CDC estimated produce accounted for 46 percent of illnesses, and meat and poultry accounted for 29 percent of deaths. Of the meat, poultry accounted for the most deaths at 19 percent. Leafy vegetables accounted for the most illnesses. Many of those illnesses were caused by norovirus. Weve known for a long time that norovirus and possibly other viruses that we dont know as much about are the leading cause of foodborne illness, said Douglas Archer, associate director of Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. explosive, illness in adults or in people. Archer said the odds that someone will get sick from foodborne disease are incredibly low, which can be further prevented by washing produce. Keith Schneider, associate professor for UF Food Science and Human Nutrition, agreed. As far as risk to the consumer on an everyday basis, you are more likely to get into a car accident than you are in getting a foodborne illness, he said. According to the CDC, sick food the norovirus outbreaks, which involve two or more people affected by contaminated food, Schneider said. If a workers ill and theyre not washing their hands, the chances of them cross contaminating or making people sick is very high, he said. Food safety and sanitation is taught at UF, and proper hand washing is always one of the key topics, he said. Overall, Schneider said the announcements made by the CDC seem fairly dramatic because food today is cleaner than it ever has been. Archer agreed. We eat millions of tons of fresh produce daily in this country, and we eat safely, he said.

ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator WriterTaylore Fuller always wanted to be a Gator. Growing up in Trenton, about 45 minutes from Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium, Fuller dreamed of one day donning the orange and blue. From eight or nine years old, every girl within probably a three-hour radius wants to play softball for UF, Ginger Fuller, Taylores mother, said. As she got older, UF was always picked No. 1. But Taylore never knew if she would get to follow her dreams and play softball for the Gators. NCAA rules state that college coaches cannot contact high school players until their junior season. high school, including a .778 batting average with 14 home runs her senior year, Taylore thought any mistakes she made would cost her the opportunity to play in Gainesville. Taylore felt like every scholarship lasts every at-bat, Ginger said. If she did well, get recruited. But once the recruiting period opened mailbox. She was getting a couple letters a day, Ginger said. Did you know you got the same birthday as our coach? Thats a sign youre supposed to go here. It was very But Florida was always at the top of the list, and coach Tim Walton sold her on the program. other schools or anything, so that was nice, Taylore said. he saw what I had. But Taylore didnt receive any preferential treatment from her mother. She was always harder on me than everyone else, Taylore said. Thats how its always been with my parents. But Ginger had her reasons for being so hard on Taylore. Our kids ... had to be so much better than everybody else, Ginger said. They had to work harder. They had to run more. They had to hit more. They had to steal more, because we never wanted anybody to say that the only reason she was there was because she was the coachs kid. The constant pushing from her parents kept Taylore, one of the best high school players in the country, grounded. After her senior year, she was ranked the No. 6 catcher in the nation and No. 38 overall recruit by ESPN. She never really had a clue how many home runs she had, Ginger said. She was always leading the area by quite a bit. Though Taylore was a team leader, she was never the most vocal player. Shes not a real talker, Ginger said. Even when she was little, she wouldnt do the cheers and chants that they do in the dugout. She just wanted to be there and play, and that was it. But Taylore needs to work on improving her communication. She has competition for the starting catcher role. Florida signed three catchers in 2012. Along with Taylore, the Gators have freshmen backstops Cari Broderick and Aubree Munro. Munro came to Florida as the No. 7 catching recruit and No. 42 overall prospect in the country, according to ESPN. Both Taylore and Munro have earned rave reviews from teammates, Walton and each other. Shes the most amazing catcher Ive ever seen, Taylore said of Munro. Shes so good. Shes naturally gifted, obviously, but she also has the technicals about catching down, too. Said Munro: Taylore Fullers a great stick, and shes going to contribute a lot in the batting lineup, for sure. a utility player. She expressed her willington asked. Walton decided to try her at thats something her athleticisms allowed her to do, Walton said. She has a really strong throwing arm, good foot speed, can dive and do some things. Walton plans to bat Taylore in the middle of Floridas lineup. Ginger believes Taylore will not have much trouble adjusting to all the facets of college softball. Shes got the skill set to do whatever she wants, Ginger said of her daughter. I think shell give them 110 percent, and all they have to do is ask. Taylore will make her college debut this weekend at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz. Whether those innings will decided. for the Gators, Taylore isnt worried about the competition. She is just happy to be at her worth one at-bat at a time. Ive been facing the best pitchers, so that part Im not nervous about, Taylore said. grew up watching them play, and Im exIts everything I thought it was going to be and more. 16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Courtesy of Ginger FullerFreshman catcher Taylore Fuller (third from left) was one of three catchers to sign with SOfFTBALL FEATATURESurpassing her dream: Freshman aims to impress quickly

The email in question was sent by Leah Miller, a liaison between the Swamp Party and its fraternity house representatives for the upcoming SG election. It asks the 25 representatives to collect I Voted stickers from everyone in their rosters and supply the party with a $250 check. But UFs administration said the email is not under its purview. Because she didnt think it violated state laws or the Student Code of Conduct, Dean of Students and Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Jen Day Shaw said she referred the Students Party to take the complaint to the Election Commission.

The changes are planned to take effect beginning Aug. 5, according to a postal service press release. Carl Williams, senior postal manager of the UF mail distribution center, said the change wont have an effect on UF campus mail delivery because departments dont receive mail on Saturday. We will continue to do the dorm delivery on Saturday until we are told differently, he said, but at this point, nothing has been written that says it will affect the University of Florida in any way at this time. Williams said the center was informed of the possibility of schedule but wont be making any changes until it gets further instructions from the postal service. The decision comes as part of a postal service effort to reduce expenses. Last year, the postal service reported a $15.9 billion loss, according to the postal services inin November.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 KELSEY WONDERLINAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers participated in a six-year national project to create the most comprehensive tree of life to date for placental mammals, which are animals that bear live young. The study, published Thursday in the journal Science, contains data on about 4,500 characteristics of more than 80 species of placental mammals, said co-author Jonathan Bloch, associate curator of vertebrate paleontology at UFs Florida Museum of Natural History. The large database includes characteristics of animals teeth, skull, muscle, nerves, blood and behavior. My philosophy has always been, More data will always be better, he said. Bloch led the team responsible for coding primates, which includes humans and their fossil relatives. He explained one method of coding, which entails making simple individual observations about how animals physically look and then relating it to numbers. For example, if an animal has a big head, its assigned a zero. Shared characteristics show how various animals are related. Using living animals and fossils, researchers concluded that placeninto modern-looking animals after the extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago, Bloch said. This is contrary to older studies, which ar cation happened 80 to 90 million years ago and include only molecular data. Researchers used the tree of life to reconstruct an image of the common ancestor of placental mammals based on inferences, said co-author Mary Silcox, an assistant professor at the University of Toronto Scar borough. She said no fossil actually looks like the reconstructed image; its a hypothesis backed up by data that an artist turned into a picture. Discovering the tree of life is like piecing together a crime scene, said lead author and manager Maureen OLeary, an associate professor in the School of Medicine at Stony Brook University and research associate at the American Museum of Natural History. She said both processes aim to uncover what happened in the past using more than DNA. Researchers used an online program called MorphoBank that allowed them to view archived data from different locations. MorphoBank documented its ture Bloch said is crucial in passing the study to future scientists who could eventually incorporate all animals into the tree of life. Bloch also values the collaborative nature of the project. If you really want to approach a big question, you need lots of brains that really know what theyre talking about, he said. Together we were able to address the question in a bigger way than one person could alone.UF researchers help map tree of life THE SATURDAY EVENT COSTS $5.

Police charged Xavier Antowyn Gunn, 39, of 3600 Windmeadows Blvd., Apt. 120, with armed burglary, grand theft and possession of a concealed weapon by a convicted felon, spokesman. A surveillance video from the Jan. 2 burglary showed Gunn walking into the cafe at 4158 NW 13th Street wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, pulling out a gun and demanding money from cashier Courtney Hamilton. Hamilton, 21, gave the money to Gunn before he walked out of the cafe. During the investigation, detectives viewed another sur veillance video from before the burglary that showed Hamilton checking around the store to make sure the security guard and manager were not around and making a phone call before Gunn came in, Tobias said. On Jan. 6, police arrested Hamilton on armed burglary and conspiracy charges, according to the Alachua County Clerk of Court website.

At least its back on TV, right? Have a safe week, and go Gators!I desecrated a national treasure over the weekend, and I enjoyed every second of it. That treasure was The Star-Spangled Banner. I recorded my attempt at it and failed spectacularly because I cant sing at all (ask anyone who was at the halftime show for the mens basketball game against Southeastern Louisiana; theyll tell you how bad I am.). There was something refreshing about doing something I knew I couldnt do well and doing it with gusto anyway. What about those who do have talent? Beyonc Knowles at the inauguration and Alicia Keys at the Suone can question that they have legitimate vocal skill when it comes to music. Can they be fairly accused of disrespecting the anthem? Beyonc caused a national stir when it was discovered that her singing was lip-synced. I was surprised to ing the anthem live was disrespectful. I thought it was the opposite; she didnt want to do disservice to a song we hold dear and therefore made plans to preserve the best possible performance. Keys version provoked a more common argument about the anthem, one that asserts there is a right and wrong way to sing it. On a technical argument, based on the actual notes of the song, I concede there is a correct way to sing the song. That way is also incredibly hard to sing perfectly, let alone in front of a demanding audience who will harp on a mistake the instant it happens. ferent amount of time, emphasizing different lines or shifting notes mid-word when traditionally there isnt one. People view this as an affront to the songs honor and integrity. So what? Covers of songs are released all the time that keep the words but change genres. My favorite example of this is the Punk Goes series, in which punk bands perform songs in their own style. The United States is a country that values personal freedom, individuality and hard work. The last of those is required to even be considered for the honor and the two are rights of the performer that we also recognize. Because of their talent, we allow the singers to impart their own style into the song, barring major alterations. Its just silly to me. Only one kind of patriotic display can be shown, and anything that doesnt match someones interpretation is offensive? If you do a quick Google Images search of the most featuring the World Trade Center, a bald eagle on a dog and a picture of the crew, Captain America, Hulk Hogan move from that collection, but Im not going to get up in arms about someones personal view of this awesome country. We have enough issues in the country to worry about; types of patriotic displays should not be one of them. If the national anthem sounds amazing even if it isnt what you expected, applaud the work. Those who get riled up over it show they care more about the pronunciation of the words over what those very words mean. Logan Ladnyk is a journalism junior at UF. His column runs on Fridays.Why?

They unanimously passed a resolution to explore options of raising parking permit prices. LOC AL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterThe Gainesville City Commission voted Thursday afternoon to revamp the neighborhood parking decal program in neighborhoods around the UF campus area. The city unanimously passed a resolution to explore raising the price of city parking permits and developing demand management strategies. Gainesvilles Public Works department spokesman Jacob Kain said because the citys current parking permit system was established in 1981 to keep commuters from parking in neighborhoods, the pur pose of many residential areas such as University Heights and College Park has shifted. Single-family residences have shifted to communal housing for groups of students, which means more cars clogging the area, he said. Its put a drain on the available parking in the neighborhoods and has created frustration for residents. The current price for yearly neighborhood parking decals is $19.50 per year. The scarcity of parking has led to a decal black market, which has led many students to create their to skirt the system, said Bruce Delaney, a rental property manager who addressed the commission during a public comment section. Teresa Scott, director of Public Works, suggested requiring residents to pick up their decals in per son instead of completing the transaction solely online. Its one thing to lie to a computer but another to lie to a staff person in person, she said. City staff members recommended full responsibility for distributing parking permits should fall to the city. Staff also suggested raising the price of permits while starting the parking grace period earlier, on July 15 instead of Aug. 15. The issue will now go to the Community Development Committee for further evaluation. City Commission discusses raising parking permit prices CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterFacebook users are having an its complicated relationship with the social networking site. Sixty-seven percent of American adults who use the Internet are Facebook users. Of those, 61 percent report they have voluntarily taken a break of several weeks or longer from the website at some time in the past, according to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center as part of its Internet and American Life Project. The largest group of study participants said they stayed off Facebook as a result of being too busy with other demands or not having enough time to spend on the site. Other reasons included a general lack of interest in the site, excessive gossip from others or concerns they were spending too much time logged on. Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist, said he has never taken a conscious break from Facebook since he joined the site on July 13, 2005. Still, he is not fully surprised by the I suspect that some people have gotten fatigued by the inundation of the content from others, he said. Personally, I wouldnt be surprised if the recent political season has been the cause for a Facebook vacation. Steve Johnson, UFs visual production coordinator with the College of Journalism and Communications and co-instructor of a social media journalism class, attributes the Facebook breaks to the ongoing surge of social media. options, he said. It can be so demanding that it has a backlash effect. Johnson also suggested users may be getting bored with the site over time. Christine Flammia, a 19-year-old UF jour user, is among the majority of people who have put the site on hold at one point or another. When I go on vacation, I like to shut off electronics, she said. It can get very over whelming.

CAITLIN RADDATZAlligator Contributing WriterUpchuck is never pleasant. Neither is diarrhea. Throw in some stomach pains and a fever, and it sounds like a textbook case of food poisoning. These symptoms, outlined by Mayo Clinic, are all too familiar for the estimated 48 million Americans who get sick, 128,000 who are hospitalized and 3,000 who die from foodborne diseases every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released information late last month about its 11-year study to determine what foods make people sick. list of the sources of foodborne illnesses acquired in the United States. The study, which was conducted from 1998 to 2008, showed illness was attributed to 17 different food categories. The CDC estimated produce accounted for 46 percent of illnesses, and meat and poultry accounted for 29 percent of deaths. Of the meat, poultry accounted for the most deaths at 19 percent. Leafy vegetables accounted for the most illnesses. Many of those illnesses were caused by norovirus. Weve known for a long time that norovirus and possibly other viruses that we dont know as much about are the leading cause of foodborne illness, said Douglas Archer, associate director of Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. explosive, illness in adults or in people. Archer said the odds that someone will get sick from foodborne disease are incredibly low, which can be further prevented by washing produce. Keith Schneider, associate professor for UF Food Science and Human Nutrition, agreed. As far as risk to the consumer on an everyday basis, you are more likely to get into a car accident than you are in getting a foodborne illness, he said. According to the CDC, sick food the norovirus outbreaks, which involve two or more people affected by contaminated food, Schneider said. If a workers ill and theyre not washing their hands, the chances of them cross contaminating or making people sick is very high, he said. Food safety and sanitation is taught at UF, and proper hand washing is always one of the key topics, he said. Overall, Schneider said the announcements made by the CDC seem fairly dramatic because food today is cleaner than it ever has been. Archer agreed. We eat millions of tons of fresh produce daily in this country, and we eat safely, he said.

ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator WriterTaylore Fuller always wanted to be a Gator. Growing up in Trenton, about 45 minutes from Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium, Fuller dreamed of one day donning the orange and blue. From eight or nine years old, every girl within probably a three-hour radius wants to play softball for UF, Ginger Fuller, Taylores mother, said. As she got older, UF was always picked No. 1. But Taylore never knew if she would get to follow her dreams and play softball for the Gators. NCAA rules state that college coaches cannot contact high school players until their junior season. high school, including a .778 batting average with 14 home runs her senior year, Taylore thought any mistakes she made would cost her the opportunity to play in Gainesville. Taylore felt like every scholarship lasts every at-bat, Ginger said. If she did well, get recruited. But once the recruiting period opened mailbox. She was getting a couple letters a day, Ginger said. Did you know you got the same birthday as our coach? Thats a sign youre supposed to go here. It was very But Florida was always at the top of the list, and coach Tim Walton sold her on the program. other schools or anything, so that was nice, Taylore said. he saw what I had. But Taylore didnt receive any preferential treatment from her mother. She was always harder on me than everyone else, Taylore said. Thats how its always been with my parents. But Ginger had her reasons for being so hard on Taylore. Our kids ... had to be so much better than everybody else, Ginger said. They had to work harder. They had to run more. They had to hit more. They had to steal more, because we never wanted anybody to say that the only reason she was there was because she was the coachs kid. The constant pushing from her parents kept Taylore, one of the best high school players in the country, grounded. After her senior year, she was ranked the No. 6 catcher in the nation and No. 38 overall recruit by ESPN. She never really had a clue how many home runs she had, Ginger said. She was always leading the area by quite a bit. Though Taylore was a team leader, she was never the most vocal player. Shes not a real talker, Ginger said. Even when she was little, she wouldnt do the cheers and chants that they do in the dugout. She just wanted to be there and play, and that was it. But Taylore needs to work on improving her communication. She has competition for the starting catcher role. Florida signed three catchers in 2012. Along with Taylore, the Gators have freshmen backstops Cari Broderick and Aubree Munro. Munro came to Florida as the No. 7 catching recruit and No. 42 overall prospect in the country, according to ESPN. Both Taylore and Munro have earned rave reviews from teammates, Walton and each other. Shes the most amazing catcher Ive ever seen, Taylore said of Munro. Shes so good. Shes naturally gifted, obviously, but she also has the technicals about catching down, too. Said Munro: Taylore Fullers a great stick, and shes going to contribute a lot in the batting lineup, for sure. a utility player. She expressed her willington asked. Walton decided to try her at thats something her athleticisms allowed her to do, Walton said. She has a really strong throwing arm, good foot speed, can dive and do some things. Walton plans to bat Taylore in the middle of Floridas lineup. Ginger believes Taylore will not have much trouble adjusting to all the facets of college softball. Shes got the skill set to do whatever she wants, Ginger said of her daughter. I think shell give them 110 percent, and all they have to do is ask. Taylore will make her college debut this weekend at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz. Whether those innings will decided. for the Gators, Taylore isnt worried about the competition. She is just happy to be at her worth one at-bat at a time. Ive been facing the best pitchers, so that part Im not nervous about, Taylore said. grew up watching them play, and Im exIts everything I thought it was going to be and more. 16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Courtesy of Ginger FullerFreshman catcher Taylore Fuller (third from left) was one of three catchers to sign with SOFTBALL FEATURESurpassing her dream: Freshman aims to impress quickly
