Notesolution has served more than 90,000 Canadian university students through social learning and is expanding to the U.S. Currently, Notesolution has more than 100,000 documents, which cover more than 5,000 courses, according to the website. UF is not yet listed on the website. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said if individual student notes are uploaded to the site, it would not be a violation of the UF Student Conduct Code. However, uploading PowerPoint presentations and other violation of the code because that is a professors intellectual property, she said. It depends on the situation and instructor directions in class, Sikes said. Kevin Wu, co-founder of Notesolution, created the website his senior year at the University of Toronto in 2010 with his friends Jack Tai and Jackey Li. We can help new students and be able to provide course notes for them or if theyre looking for supplementary reading material, Wu said. Its also a good way for current students to pass down their knowledge. Students who want a job as a notetaker for Notesolution would upload lecture notes on a weekly basis for a base salary of $50. Depending on performance and commission, student earnings could be as high as $500 a week, according to the website. Wu said the website does not promote students skipping class because it is based on a credit system. Students obtain notes by paying for them with credits, which are only earned by uploading their own notes, he said.Site hopes UF students take noteSEE NOTES, PAGE 4CAMPUS Its also a good way for current students to pass down their knowledge.Kevin Wuco-founder of the websiteSEE ELECTIONS, PAGE 4

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 CAMPUS ERIKA OAKVIKAlligator Contributing WriterGator Dining Services plans to eliminate plastic bags in oncampus dining locations. It has implemented a new sustainability initiative to help reduce petroleum-based waste such as plastic bags. Subway restaurants at the Reitz Union and Turlington Plaza have recently eliminated the use of plastic bags by introducing labels that secure sandwich wrappings, Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for Gator Dining Services, wrote in an email. Although the restaurants will continue to keep bags on hand for customers who request one, Gator Dining Ser vices is exploring options to replace plastic bags with paper bags at other dining locations, Rodriguez said. Deta Waller, an 18-year-old UF early childhood education freshman, said the initiative is a great idea and will help UF to be greener. Waller thinks the new program will help increase student awareness about sustainability issues by sparking conversation when customers inquire about plastic bags. It will make students more aware of the environment, she said. Waller said the initiative makes her proud to eat at a dining center that is sustainable. Casey Seely, a 21-year-old meals a day at Gator Dining facilities, said he thinks the initiative is a good course of action. I think that going green is always a good choice, he said. the new sustainability changes by UFs dining services. We think that by doing this, UF is moving in the right direction, said Erin Condon, executive director of Florida Defenders of the Environment. She said its always a good idea to reduce the waste a big organization creates. Worldwide, trillions of plastic bags are used every year, according to UFs Gator Dining Services website. In an effort to reach UFs goal of zero waste by 2015, the Green Team, which is in charge of executing sustainability programs with Gator Dining Ser vices, has been investigating ways to minimize food waste in food service locations on campus. We will ensure that our sustainability initiatives not only better the environment but improve our customers experience when eating on campus, Rodriguez said.

Victor said the win was not his per sonal victory. Ive got a big year ahead of me, he said. Castillo said he wanted to thank everyone who participated in the campaign. I wanna congratulate Christina, and I know shell do an incredible job as Student Body president, he said. Goldman is disappointed, she said, but she has to respect the decision of the voters. Im surprised that the margin was this high, shocked actually, she said. Students also voted for student senation. Swamp Party won 37 seats, and the Students Party won 13 seats. The engineering seat was divided among one Students Party senator and two Swamp Party senators. Students Party nominated candidates for 40 seats, and the Swamp Party nominated candidates for all 50 seats. A nonbinding referendum was also on the ballot regarding soft closings of bars. The referendum gauged student opinion on whether they wanted bars to close at 3 a.m. but stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. About 90 percent of the people who voted on the referendum voted yes. About 900 people opposed it, and no one abstained. The Election Commission will hear no more complaints regarding the election, said Election Commission Chairwoman Brianne Lewis. The results of the election are not in effect until the Student Senate validates them Tuesday.

ZOZAYAAlligator Contributing WriterUnderneath a massive, blue Americas Best Value Inn sign, streaming below a bridge on Southwest 13th Street, there is a narrow creek with an unusually green color. Tumblin Creek was once a winding stream with twists and turns. However, the health of the creek watershed has continually degraded, and the city is now working to rejuvenate it. Gainesville City Commissioner Lauren Poe said since hes been on the Commission, city residents have wanted to see an improvement in the creeks well-being. keep the water quality high, he said. Keeping in mind the ecological and economic risks an unhealthy watershed can cause, the City Commission has given the citys Public Works department the green light to begin the Tumblin Creek watershed project, according to a City of Gainesville memo. The project aims to reduce the concentration of harmful nutrients brought on after a city project in 1964 redirected Bivens Arm using a raised bank called a berm. Stefan Broadus, an engineer with Gainesville Public Works, said once the berm is removed, the creek will take its natural journey into the wetlands through Bivens Arm and eventually Broadus said the wetlands naturally treat the water, which increases the water quality to healthy levels by removing unnecessary nitrogen and phosphorus quantities. This allows for aquatic ecosystems to thrive. At this moment, the concentration of nitrogen and phosphorus is too high for a water body of Tumblin Creek and Bivens Arms size to control, especially after both bodies of water receive runoff from storm water, said Assistant Public Works Director Don Hambidge. Hambidge said while some nitrogen and phosphorus content in the citys water bodies is growth. Additionally, Plan East Gainesville, a community-planned study funded by Alachua County and the city, reported nitrogen and phosphorus levels in the creek to be as high as 2.5 milligrams per liter and 0.7 milligrams per liter after a storm, respectively. Hambidge said he attributes this large spike in nutrient concentration to the diversion of stormwater runoff from the wetlands. He estimates the bids to start construction in January and then Stewart Pearson, former stormwater manager for Gainesville Public Works, said this project would lead to better recreational opportunities in Bivens Arm and the surrounding area. Even though the city has received several opsaid the project will help improve water quality across the county. If it doesnt get dealt with upstream, he said, it will be dealt with at the bottom end. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013Poe Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffStudents Party presidential candidate Johnny Castillo reacts to the results of the Student Government elections at the Reitz Union early Thursday morning.

SAMANTHA DEANAlligator Contributing WriterP. K. Yonge Developmental Research School is bringing a twist of New York City to Gainesville this weekend. The school, located at 1080 SW 11th St., is putting on In the Heights for its spring musical the country to do so, said school play director Carrie Kelsey. The Tony Award-winning musical is based in Washington Heights, a predominantly Dominican-American neighborhood in New York City, and follows the characters through three days in their lives. The students have been begging to do it for years, Kelsey said. She said the production, which costs about $40,000, is the schools only play for the year. It was completely funded through fundraisers, donations and ticket sales. In January, students traveled to Washington Heights during P.K. Yonges annual New York City trip. While there, some attended a Q-and-A session with Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the musical. Raphael Llana, an 18-year-old P.K. Yonge senior, auditioned in September for the part of Usnavi De La Vega, the narrator and main character. Llana said he can relate to his character because of their similar Hispanic backgrounds. Everything he talks about Ive heard before, tasted before and smelled before, he said. Hes very intricate, and he doesnt think like everyone else in Washington Heights does, which is how I feel here. The show will run Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday. It will also continue to run next weekend. Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for everyone else.

ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Contributing WriterMember of the National Aviation Hall of Fame and Gator alumnus Col. Joe Kittinger spoke to about 400 students and faculty about his contributions to the Red Bull Stratos program Wednesday in the Reitz Union Auditorium. Kittinger was a UF engineering student in the late 1940s. He made history when he went 102,800 feet into the stratosphere in a high-altitude balloon Aug. 16, 1960. Throughout the last four years, Kittinger has helped the Red Bull Stratos program break his record, reaching new heights of someone jumped into space. With the media of today, the whole world was able to share in the excitement of the record, he said. In recognition of National Engineers Week, UFs College of Engineering and its student chapters of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and U.S. Air Force ROTC invited Kittinger to share the highlights of the program. I remember watching him on the Discovery Channel when I was a little kid and thinking it was the coolest thing, mechanical and aerospace engineering freshman Giovanni Santoro, 18, said. External vice president of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Paul Chestnut introduced Kittinger. It was the most amazing experience, the 21-year-old UF aerospace engineering junior said. He makes me want to push myself further in my goals and career. Even after signing hundreds of autographs and taking just as many photos, Kittinger refused to end early. I was honored that they wanted my autograph, Kittinger said.

The decision came a week after UCFs Sigma Chi fraternity was also suspended for posting a Facebook picture with the caption, Forcing a pledge to chug while two others puke in misery, according to Central Florida News 13. UCF fraternities and sororities are prohibited from socials as well as new member initiations and are only permitted to hold organizational business meetings. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said she couldnt speculate about what circumstances would lead to a blanket suspension at UF. We would have to consider all of the issues at hand, she said. According to the UCF Fraternity and Sorority Life website, chapter activities may resume when the university believes the and is compliant with laws and university regulations dealing with hazing and alcohol. Albie Kaminsky, Interfraternity Council was sad to hear about what happened. You never want to see something like that, he said. It gives fraternities and sororities a bad name. Actions by some can ruin it for many. Kaminsky said UF Greek life has taken measures to prevent hazing, like a presentation about hazing at the new members orientation Sunday. Also, UF administration formed the Anti-Hazing Task Force in 2011 in the wake of issues at Florida A&M University. Some members of UFs chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, a National Pan-Hellenic Council fraternity, were charged with hazing last year. Students were allegedly forced to do chores, slapped and beaten with paddles. Kappa Alpha Psi was also investigated. Most recently, UFs chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon Sig Ep was closed for a number of charges including hazing, according to Alligator archives.

Harlem residents not fans of the videosI cant believe what the whites did to the harlem shake, a post from Tumblr user fquemark reads. After an explosion of replications of the Harlem Shake meme, in which a locked camera shot records a lone dancer and then cuts to many dancers waving their arms and improvising dance moves, the SchleppFilms YouTube channel added a video (with much higher production value than any of the Harlem Shake videos to date, I might add) called Harlem Reacts to Harlem Shake Videos. Most of the people responded with disbelief, annoyance and anger. At the end of the video, a few of the residents performed the actual Harlem Shake, a complicated dance involving controlled, isolated upper-body muscle movements. The dance in the video, to the extent that its a dance at all, isnt the actual Harlem Shake, which has been an uptown staple for more than a decade. (See most of the videos by the former Bad Boy rapper G. Dep for a tutorial.), Jon Caramanica, a New York Times critic, said in a review of Macklemores Thrift Shop and Baauers Harlem Shake. The explosion of this song, and its accompanying videos, threatens to all but obliterate the original dances claim on the name. The Harlem residents in the SchleppFilms video reacted with similar frustration with the Internets bastardization of the dance. A few older reactors shook their heads and expressed their contempt for the people who turned a cultural phenomenon unique to Harlem into a cash cow. Theyre spot on. According to an interview with Baauer in The Daily Beast, Baauer has been basking in the fame of the runaway hit after his song hit No. 1 on iTunes. Thats not the Harlem Shake at all, thats humping, one man said. I think theyre misinformed, another said. They look like they just smoked some dust. I feel like they trying to disrespect us. They dont live in Harlem. They dont come from Harlem. They come from a strange planet. Its an absolute mockery. Its injustice. Thats a bunch of idiots. Its just a shake, one woman said, but it aint the Harlem Shake. That represents Jersey, California, a woman said. That is not Harlem. The makers of the video asked people what they would like to tell everyone who made a Harlem Shake video. Stop, please. If youre going to make one of these videos, please do the Harlem Shake, not just waving your arms doing the SpongeBob. Stop that s---. Please use the Harlem Shake responsibly! Baauer said in the interview his song is not a homage to Harlem, which makes sense the 23-year-old DJ only lived in Harlem for two years and then moved to Brooklyn. He explained he named the track Harlem Shake after a phrase from a beat he sampled in the song. Baauer spent most of his teen years on the mean streets Teen Center. Nope, thats not a joke; the guy who single-handedly pissed off everyone in Harlem is just a white boy who grew up in a state after Martha Stewarts own heart and who now lives in a part of Brooklyn where scenes from HBOs Girls Of course, in two weeks, when the pop culture machine belches out some other horrible trend for people to go nuts over, the Harlem Shake will be forgotten. In twenty years, when VH1 does an I Heart the 2010s, some comedians will who grew up with real hardcore Harlem hip-hop wont forget the punk who misappropriated their decades-old dance. Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays.Fightin Florida: Were taking down Russia or somethingHold onto your seats, folks. Florida might have just done something awesome. Its at the expense, though, of Russian lawmaker Vladimir A. Pekhtin. A senior lawmaker from Russias ruling party, who was also the chairman of Parliaments ethics committee, resigned from the legislature on Wednesday over revelations that he owned more than $1.3 million worth of luxury real estate in Florida that he did not list on required disclosure forms, reported The New York Times. The ethics committee he was in charge of was part of the State Duma, a lower house in Russias parliament. The Duma has been a hotbed of passionate anti-American activity recently, passing laws forcing organizations that receive funds from abroad to register as foreign agents, banning adopington Post. The fact that the dude in charge of something pretty antiAmerican owned a whole bunch of luxury property in Florida makes him look so, so bad. He left his position over this whole issue, all because a blogger from the opposition made allegations toward his property-owning status. Last week, Alexei Navalny, an anti-corruption activist, posted compromising photographs and property records showing Pekhtins name on the deeds to two condos in Miami Beach and another in Ormond Beach, reported The Washington Post. Pekhtin said the real estate was owned by his son, who lives in the United States, but both names were on the deeds. He soon relinquished the chairmanship of his committee temporarily, he said. He said he had not broken any law, according to The New York Times, but that there are very controversial documents that have been made public on the Internet, and it was necessary to clear up obvious legal misunderstandings. How hysterical is it that Florida is again at the center of a political scandal? We didnt do anything too bad this time, though. President Vladimir Putin has been trying to seize the anticorruption mantle from the opposition and has proposed a law or bank accounts, although it leaves property ownership untouched, stated The Washington Post. Ha, good luck, buddy. There are few things you can learn from the United States as a whole; an easy lesson is how to be corrupt in government. Weve got this one covered. The opposition party or forces (basically, the people who dont always side with the government or with Putin) are the ones who are pro-anti-corruption. Russian authorities have frequently fought against bloggers like Navalny by bringing charges of fraud against those rebellious people. Sorry Florida was so intriguing to your lawmakers that they too pristine or that our Spanish food is sometimes on point. We realize were writing an editorial about a country that will never read this, let alone change their entire basis of policy on our small words. Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 For the past four years, Americans have been waiting for the solution to the economy they thought would have come sooner. President Barack Obama said Americans had to answer historys call in the light of a potential second depression. This time, as he entered the House chamber and looked in the television cameras, he focused on the idea that creating middle class jobs must be the North Star that guides our [economic] efforts. While there are many important issues that face this country, I was pleased the president brought up manufacturing. He said Washington must guarantee that the next revolution in manufacturing is Made in America. With issues facing this country. Now is the time for Congress facturing. Though there have been signs of erosion, the American manufacturing industry is still one of the largest in the world. A January 2012 Congressional Research Service report found that Americas share of global manufacturing activity has decreased in recent years. Chinas manufacturing sector is almost as large as in the United States. One of the common arguments related to manufacturing thrown around recently is that American companies are outsourcing jobs to other countries because their labor laws allow manufacturing operations to be However, this is not as big of an issue as most Americans think it is. As the Bureau of Labor Statistics has found, the effect of outsourcing has been minimal. In the third quarter of 2012, when more than 100,000 workers were laid off, ers had their jobs moved to another country. An article from The Atlantic reported that American jobs in America and have, in fact, started to insource jobs. Chinas Foxconn, the Chinese manufacturing giant, is actually planning on increasing their operations in the United States. American companies are realizing the effect outsourcing will have on the economy. On the other hand, whats preventing companies from producing in the United States is the attractiveness of production in other countries. Part of the issue is the value of the dollar made producing goods in the United States less attractive than other countries with cheaper labor, production costs and lower marginal tax rates. If America wants to become more competitive in this regard, the federal government must be willing to create a plan that provides subsidies and lowers tax rates for businesses and manufactures that [will] create jobs right here in America. This would help reduce the costs of production in the U.S., which would make companies more willing to attract new jobs without having to reduce workers salaries. One point Obama has been stressing is that increasing our focus on alternative energy will make America a stronger manufacturing country. According to the Department of Energy, in August 2012, the wind sector was employing ,000 American workers, including workers at manufacturing facilities up and down the supply chain, as well as engineers and construction workers who build and operate the wind farms. energy manufacturing. On top of providing jobs, it will help Americans save money on energy consumption. This is the direction the manufacturing sector is going. If we fail to recognize the importance of alternative energy, America will fall behind. Manufacturing is what has driven America throughout the past century. If we plan to give up on manufacturing, we are throwing the future of this country away. But words can only go so far. This plan will not completely revive the American car industry or the steel industry. Although its not complete, President Obamas plan will make American manufacturing industry more competitive than it is today so that we can be authors of the next great chapter in our American story. Paul Sherman is a columnist for the Michigan Daily at the University of Michigan.Obama has a manufacturing solution UWirePaul ShermanUWire The big day came and went: Valentines Day. Its a time of celebrating companionship or loneliness, depending on your situation. Its a day of broken expectations and extravagant surprises, depending on your luck. The geeky shy girl prayed ers and chocolates he didnt. The spoiled girlfriend posted a picture of the $100 items her boyfriend gave her she made us jealous. The girl dating the bad boy waited to see her man in a suit and tie at a fancy restaurant he didnt even show up. Every year, for every girl, Feb. 14 is marked on our calendars as test day. We give guys no choice. My barely single guy friends from around campus had the most dreadful experiences last week. Here are some perspectives from my guy friends from different majors around campus: Economics: The money wasted on Valentines Day can solve the debt crisis. Im always single, but I look for a date a few months ahead. Not too early. The price of the present she expects grows exponentially. Not too late. Shell have made plans supporting her single and weeping friends. But, as always, I ended up with my nerdy engineering friends. We bought beer and played Xbox all night. Bromance counts, too, right? Chemistry: Im busy trying to get into med school; if not, dentistry. Then, pharmacy and law school as a last resort. I have no time for a girlfriend. My engaged friend created an account for me on www. OkCupid.com, but the girls there are after my prestigious degree and future. Maybe Im bitter because he starts saving months in advance for his high school sweetheart. Hes too busy and poor to afford the necessities: football games and drinks at Balls. The only thing he talks about is what expensive presents he should buy her and what the look on her face will be. He lives for the words, I love you. Youre a keeper. After six years of dating, he is still afraid of losing her. Better to be single than that insecure, right? French and music: Chicks dig musicians and French men. Im not really French, but my great-great-grandpa was German. That counts. Im classy, and I didnt take her to the typical romantic dinner. Actually, I tried to make a reservation too late. We went on a picnic, and I played her a French song with my guitar. It was barely French. She loved it anyway. Then, I surprised her with a bottle of Chteauneuf-duPape, a red wine I cant really pronounce. The taste was unbearable, but she pretended to like it, and together we got drunk. I puked and got stopped by the cops for drivJournalism guy: Im not a conformist, and I totally didnt enter the holiday aisle at Walgreens. But I did try to get laid by a girl in my newspaper editing class. Ive known her since she cried in reporting. Theres too much fuss about Valentines Day, but this was my chance. I make such a big deal of everything, from grammar to girls. I decided to just ask her out next month. Im more cool and casual than a follower anyways. Wait, Im never getting married. Whats the point? Mechanical engineering: There are only three girls in my thermodynamics class. The odds are in my favor that shed be mine. Ive let her cheat off me on every exam since sophomore year. She loves my intelligence, and she owes me anyway. Or so I thought. I borrowed my roommates BMW and showed up at her dorm room. I obnoxiously overdressed, gave a canned speech and handed her roses. She started laughing. I looked behind her and saw a shirtless guy. Theyre probably just friends, right?

JACLYN ROSENAlligator Contributing WriterStudents got down and dirty in dough for the annual dog-eat-dog Hamantaschen Bake-Off at UF Hillel on Wednesday night. pastries that are traditionally eaten for the Jewish holiday Purim, which begins Saturday. The shape of the cookies symbolizes the hat of Haman, the villain of Purims historic story. We eat the cookies to remember that we were saved from this bad guy, said Melanie Miller, 19-year-old Torah Advancement Program treasurer and UF political science freshman. Torah Advancement Program, the newest Jewish grassroots organization, competed against Koach, the Conservative Judaism organization, and Kesher, the Reform Judaism organization. For the bake-off, some cookie competitors deGirl Scouts Samoa, cheesecake, Nutella and MarshOur hamantaschen is just simple, and its the beauty in being simple. Its a very traditional recipe, said 22-year-old bake-off winner and president of Koach Stefani Pila, a UF psychology and history senior. In the spirit of Purim, Hillels campus impact specialist Jeffrey Kaplan plans to build the worlds largest grogger. The 27-year-old entrepreneurship graduate student said groggers are noisemakers used as part of the Purim celebration, and his goal is to create a 5-by-8 foot grogger using brackets, swivel casters and screws. The original grogger is 3-by-6 inches.Bake-off offers sharp competition CARLA VIANNAAlligator Contributing WriterBrowsing the Internet and downloading apps just got a whole lot faster for Gainesville residents and UF students. AT&T announced Tuesday that their 4G LTE network went live throughout the city. Company spokeswoman Michele Money-Carson wrote in an email that the network service will be available for about 40 compatible devices such as tablets and smartphones. AT&T now joins Verizon Wireless, which expanded its own 4G LTE network last year, in providing the service throughout Gainesville. LTE, which stands for long-term evolution, loading up to 10 times faster than 3G, according to the AT&Ts website. Gainesville AT&T stores have been anticipating the launch. Weve been waiting for a while, said Shannon Coe, assistant store manager at the AT&T store at 6110 NW Fourth Place. Were real excited that its here. Kyle Beckman, a 20-year-old biology junior, has noticed faster downloads on his iPhone 5. Browsing and downloading, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are faster, he said.AT&T launches new service VALERIE CRUMAlligator Contributing WriterThree Oaks Mall restaurants will no longer serve customers, but they will soon be replaced with new establishments. In the past month, the mall has seen Suki Hana, Lotus Express and Great Steak & Potato Company, once prominently located side by side in the malls food court, close their doors. It was a combination of a said Amber Williams, general manager of the Red Mango on the other side of the food court. A spokeswoman for the restaurants leases ended with the beginning of the new year, and they did not renew. She added that Charleys Grilled Subs, Asian Chao and Maki of Japan are set to replace the old restaurants in the coming months. The new managers, however, could not be reached for comment. In the meantime, mall employees and customers will continue to eat at the food court. Farran Kountz, a 22-yearold UF dietetics senior, works at the Abercrombie & Fitch store next to the food court. I buy my lunch every day I work, but the store closings have eliminated a lot of healthier choices, she said. The only place I can go to for healthy, hot food is Great Wraps. Vanessa Rodriguez, 30, said she isnt concerned with the restaurants closing. Im excited to try the new options when they open, she said, but Im always going to love it.Three mall restaurants close doors It was a combination high rent.Amber WilliamsLOC AL

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 Ariel Barnes This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http:// mediocreadvicegators. tumblr.com/ask Dear Perfect Friend, A lot of guys think that plowing a girl is the best way to make her moan false. They rely on the reviews of their past partners, who may have been overly generous to avoid being rude. The result is a sexually ignorant and cocky man. Thats a problem for the future ladies who will have a useless head between their legs. Good sex is about communication. The reason you dont know how to tell a guy that he doesnt know jack s--t about vaginas is the same reason he may think hes a sexual master. This is a waste of time for one-night stands, so teach this lesson to someone you think will stick around. Use dirty talk to guide your partner when he/she seems to lose track of what he/she is doing down there. Tell him/her what you want and where you want it. He/ she should catch on. In the heat of the moment, guiding someone isnt awkward or rude because the other person is only in your lady-land to please you. He/she wants to help you by lending an instruction manual. Dear Mediocre Advice, Im a girl who likes receiving oral, but there are so many guys who cant seem to master the task. How do you kindly show a partner how to please you? Im shocked that so many guys dont know a damn thing about the female body. Dear Friend, Keep it casual. She wants the with anyone now. You should keep in touch, but shes probably not ready for another relationship at this point, even if she says otherwise. Starting a long-distance relationship with someone you barely know is not worth it, and from my personal experience, a mistake. Stay friends. Dear Mediocre Advice, I hooked up with a girl who just got out of a three-year relationship. Everything was very casual because she no longer lives in town. I like her, and shes interested in continuing this, but Im a massive opponent to longdistance relationships. What do I do? Dear Friend, You have a better chance at becoming a wizard than avoiding razor bumps. Just wax instead. The idea of a razor near private parts is scarier than wolf spiders. Dear Mediocre Advice, I have been manicuring my pubic region for years now and still have not mastered how to avoid those unsightly shaving bumps. Ive tried everything. Any advice? THE BAR OPENED FRIDAY. JORDAN ALBRIGHTAvenue Contributing WriterSinging at the top of their lungs Oops! ... I Did It Again, Material Girl and What Makes You Beautiful, six girls stood microphones in hand belting, laughing and dancing the night away. It seemed like the girls were in their living room, surrounded by sofas, ottomans and a big screen TV, shedding inhibitions with each lyric. Then, they opened the door. The room that made them feel at home was rented from Stage 7-KTV, a new private karaoke-room venue and bar that celebrated its grand opening Friday. Stage 7, 4110 SW 34th St., Suite 1, is open from 1 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday. Patrons can reserve private soundproof rooms with high-end karaoke equipment, mood lighting, microphones, a speaker system, furniture and a large screen TV. Stage 7s bar sells snacks and serves alcoholic and nonalcoholic bever ages. The venue offers varying sizes of rooms that can hold up to 30 people. Prices per room range from $19 to $119 an hour depending on the day of the week, time and room size. Cecilla Padilla, a 20-year-old English and theater sophomore, was one of the girls singingat a birthday party during Stage 7s grand opening weekend. Its great for college students, Padilla said. Pricing wasnt too expensive, and you can bring big groups with you. Founders Martin Elkins, a 24-yearold UF business administration graduate student, and Wei Fan, a 24-year-old UF alumnus, met at The Entrepreneur ship Club at UF in April of last year. Fan wanted to bring his knowledge of the Karaoke TV abbreviated KTV craze in China to the U.S. So, he partnered with Elkins, who has experience with Amer ican bars and clubs, to create Stage 7. In Asia, Karaoke venues are more popular than bars are in America, Elkins said. Its everything you want to do at karaoke, but not in front of strangers,he said. There are more than 50,000 songs to choose from in several languages including English, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese and Filipino. Jisoo Kim, a 20-year-old UF biology sophomore, said she often sees the karaoke bars on Korean news. The venues are extremely competitive, sometimes lining entire streets. She has been to places like Stage 7 in Orlando and Jacksonville with her friends and family for stress relief and relaxation, singing in both English and Korean. Its just fun bonding time, she said.Karaoke bar harmonizes with Gainesville entertainment BECCA GOLDRINGAvenue WriterSriracha, cheesy garlic bread, have more in common than being staples of a freshmen dorm diet. Last week, Lays released the million people submitted their suggestions for the Do Us a Favor crowdsourcing campaign. I am a foodie. My palate is taste buds with these disgusting potato-chip versions of these curip them apart. Sriracha, a popular Thai hot sauce with a cultlike following, is the most promising option of the three. Sure, its great on french fries or breakfast sandwiches, but is it really necessary to put it on ice cream or peanut butter sandwiches? Yes, people really do that. (A Sriracha cookbook even exists you cant make this stuff up.) Who knows, maybe Sriracha and potato chips will be a perfect match, but the combination could also be a blasphemous offense if justice. Of course, you could always cover them in more Sriracha. tions, I feel there must have been something more interesting than betting the bread part of the equation will be nonexistent as the base is a potato, but the gar lic and cheese might complement each other nicely. However, what kind of cheese are we talking here? Theres a clear difference between under tones of sharp cheddar and Cheeto dust. To be determined. Id really like to meet the per son who submitted Chicken and Id like to meet the Lays employee who thought, Yes. This will be a good idea. Proteins are not meant to be turned into potato chips. Just imagine the unmentionable things they are doing to obtain chicken taste. The bag features a drumstick cheap maple syrup. So, salty potato maple syrup, eh? I think Ill keep the Aunt Jemima strictly for my pancakes. If youre a potato chip lover, dont miss this tasty opportunity to vote for your favorite via the Lays Facebook page, by texting VOTE to 24477 or by using the Twitter hashtags #SaveSriracha, GarlicBread by May 4. The winner will receive $1 million or 1 percent of 2013 sales, whichever is higher, and the runners-up will receive $50,000 each. Overall, I think Sriracha has the most to lose, but if Chicken out, youll have to hand me a bag of them immediately so I can throw up in it. COURTNEY NACHLASAvenue Contributing WriterWant to become a Kendrick Lamar fan in time for the show? Drank, as the rapper would suggest. Once you dive into Lamars music, youll hear a wide variety of sounds, unlike other rap. His most popular song, Swimming Pools (Drank), is not all he should be known for. On Monday, Lamar will perform at the Stephen C. OConnell Center. If you want to become a Lamar fan quickly, here is our suggested playlist to prepare you for the epic show ahead: B---h, Dont Kill My Vibe (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) Though the title may scare some of you away, the song has more to it than youd think. Its upbeat with a super-chill tempo perfect for vibing anywhere. The message is to let people do their own thing and to stop putting others down (thus killing their vibe). Money Trees feat. Jay Rock (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) Just got that new job in Gainesville and feel like celebrating now that you dont have to ask your parents for every penny? If so, Money Trees is the song for you. Whats more inspiring than singing Money Trees is the perfect place for shade over and over again to yourself? The Art of Peer Pressure (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) This fast-paced song is relatable and great to listen to when youre feeling socially pressured. Essentially, its Lamars commentary on life in the ghetto and how his endo drugs. It speaks truthfully in how an environment can make or break a person. HiiiPoWeR (Album: Section.80) One of Lamars most famous songs displays not only his diverse beats but his liberal ideals throughout his lyrics. The song discusses an important movement taking place called HiiiPoWeR. The three is represent having heart, honor and respect for yourself, no matter what youre going through. The song references the civil movement and applies HiiiPoWeR to historic events. Hol Up (Album: Section.80) To make sure weve covered all of the bases, were going to jump into some more of Lamars older music. The songs jazzy and unusual beat makes it deserve a prime spot on your iPod. Basically, this song is Lamars version of Kanyes Good Life, where he describes his life after he made it big. Its motivational and calming, so its perfect no matter what kind of mood you are in. Now or Never feat. Mary J. Blige (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) To tie up your Kendrick knowledge with one per fect, little bow, we proudly present the stinger, Now or Never. Its a bonus track on YOLO for us. Its about investing in the present because when opportunity knocks on your door, you dont want to let it pass you by. Now that youre a Kendrick Lamar fan, you wont be shunned by your friends for not knowing the lyrics dur ing his performance. Tickets are available online for $17.30 (plus fees) on Ticketmaster and $10 with a Gator 1 Card Drank up.

We can help new students and be able to provide course notes for them or if theyre looking for supplementary reading material, Wu said.

Depending on performance and commission, student earnings could be as high as $500 a week, according to the website.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 CAMPUS ERIKA OAKVIKAlligator Contributing WriterGator Dining Services plans to eliminate plastic bags in oncampus dining locations. It has implemented a new sustainability initiative to help reduce petroleum-based waste such as plastic bags. Subway restaurants at the Reitz Union and Turlington Plaza have recently eliminated the use of plastic bags by introducing labels that secure sandwich wrappings, Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for Gator Dining Services, wrote in an email. Although the restaurants will continue to keep bags on hand for customers who request one, Gator Dining Ser vices is exploring options to replace plastic bags with paper bags at other dining locations, Rodriguez said. Deta Waller, an 18-year-old UF early childhood education freshman, said the initiative is a great idea and will help UF to be greener. Waller thinks the new program will help increase student awareness about sustainability issues by sparking conversation when customers inquire about plastic bags. It will make students more aware of the environment, she said. Waller said the initiative makes her proud to eat at a dining center that is sustainable. Casey Seely, a 21-year-old meals a day at Gator Dining facilities, said he thinks the initiative is a good course of action. I think that going green is always a good choice, he said. the new sustainability changes by UFs dining services. We think that by doing this, UF is moving in the right direction, said Erin Condon, executive director of Florida Defenders of the Environment. She said its always a good idea to reduce the waste a big organization creates. Worldwide, trillions of plastic bags are used every year, according to UFs Gator Dining Services website. In an effort to reach UFs goal of zero waste by 2015, the Green Team, which is in charge of executing sustainability programs with Gator Dining Ser vices, has been investigating ways to minimize food waste in food service locations on campus. We will ensure that our sustainability initiatives not only better the environment but improve our customers experience when eating on campus, Rodriguez said.

The engineering seat was divided among one Students Party senator and two Swamp Party senators. Students Party nominated candidates for 40 seats, and the Swamp Party nominated candidates for all 50 seats. A nonbinding referendum was also on the ballot regarding soft closings of bars. The referendum gauged student opinion on whether they wanted bars to close at 3 a.m. but stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. About 90 percent of the people who voted on the referendum voted yes. About 900 people opposed it, and no one abstained. The Election Commission will hear no more complaints regarding the election, said Election Commission Chairwoman Brianne Lewis.

ZOZAYAAlligator Contributing WriterUnderneath a massive, blue Americas Best Value Inn sign, streaming below a bridge on Southwest 13th Street, there is a narrow creek with an unusually green color. Tumblin Creek was once a winding stream with twists and turns. However, the health of the creek watershed has continually degraded, and the city is now working to rejuvenate it. Gainesville City Commissioner Lauren Poe said since hes been on the Commission, city residents have wanted to see an improvement in the creeks well-being. keep the water quality high, he said. Keeping in mind the ecological and economic risks an unhealthy watershed can cause, the City Commission has given the citys Public Works department the green light to begin the Tumblin Creek watershed project, according to a City of Gainesville memo. The project aims to reduce the concentration of harmful nutrients brought on after a city project in 1964 redirected Bivens Arm using a raised bank called a berm. Stefan Broadus, an engineer with Gainesville Public Works, said once the berm is removed, the creek will take its natural journey into the wetlands through Bivens Arm and eventually Broadus said the wetlands naturally treat the water, which increases the water quality to healthy levels by removing unnecessary nitrogen and phosphorus quantities. This allows for aquatic ecosystems to thrive. At this moment, the concentration of nitrogen and phosphorus is too high for a water body of Tumblin Creek and Bivens Arms size to control, especially after both bodies of water receive runoff from storm water, said Assistant Public Works Director Don Hambidge. Hambidge said while some nitrogen and phosphorus content in the citys water bodies is growth. Additionally, Plan East Gainesville, a community-planned study funded by Alachua County and the city, reported nitrogen and phosphorus levels in the creek to be as high as 2.5 milligrams per liter and 0.7 milligrams per liter after a storm, respectively. Hambidge said he attributes this large spike in nutrient concentration to the diversion of stormwater runoff from the wetlands. He estimates the bids to start construction in January and then Stewart Pearson, former stormwater manager for Gainesville Public Works, said this project would lead to better recreational opportunities in Bivens Arm and the surrounding area. Even though the city has received several opsaid the project will help improve water quality across the county. If it doesnt get dealt with upstream, he said, it will be dealt with at the bottom end. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013Poe Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffStudents Party presidential candidate Johnny Castillo reacts to the results of the Student Government elections at the Reitz Union early Thursday morning.

The school, located at 1080 SW 11th St., is putting on In the Heights for its spring musical the country to do so, said school play director Carrie Kelsey. The Tony Award-winning musical is based in Washington Heights, a predominantly Dominican-American neighborhood in New York City, and follows the characters through three days in their lives. The students have been begging to do it for years, Kelsey said. She said the production, which costs about $40,000, is the schools only play for the year. It was completely funded through fundraisers, donations and ticket sales. In January, students traveled to Washington Heights during P.K. Yonges annual New York City trip. While there, some attended a Q-and-A session with Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the musical. Raphael Llana, an 18-year-old P.K. Yonge senior, auditioned in September for the part of Usnavi De La Vega, the narrator and main character. Llana said he can relate to his character because of their similar Hispanic backgrounds. Everything he talks about Ive heard before, tasted before and smelled before, he said. Hes very intricate, and he doesnt think like everyone else in Washington Heights does, which is how I feel here.

UCF fraternities and sororities are prohibited from socials as well as new member initiations and are only permitted to hold organizational business meetings.

Harlem residents not fans of the videosI cant believe what the whites did to the harlem shake, a post from Tumblr user fquemark reads. After an explosion of replications of the Harlem Shake meme, in which a locked camera shot records a lone dancer and then cuts to many dancers waving their arms and improvising dance moves, the SchleppFilms YouTube channel added a video (with much higher production value than any of the Harlem Shake videos to date, I might add) called Harlem Reacts to Harlem Shake Videos. Most of the people responded with disbelief, annoyance and anger. At the end of the video, a few of the residents performed the actual Harlem Shake, a complicated dance involving controlled, isolated upper-body muscle movements. The dance in the video, to the extent that its a dance at all, isnt the actual Harlem Shake, which has been an uptown staple for more than a decade. (See most of the videos by the former Bad Boy rapper G. Dep for a tutorial.), Jon Caramanica, a New York Times critic, said in a review of Macklemores Thrift Shop and Baauers Harlem Shake. The explosion of this song, and its accompanying videos, threatens to all but obliterate the original dances claim on the name. The Harlem residents in the SchleppFilms video reacted with similar frustration with the Internets bastardization of the dance. A few older reactors shook their heads and expressed their contempt for the people who turned a cultural phenomenon unique to Harlem into a cash cow. Theyre spot on. According to an interview with Baauer in The Daily Beast, Baauer has been basking in the fame of the runaway hit after his song hit No. 1 on iTunes. Thats not the Harlem Shake at all, thats humping, one man said. I think theyre misinformed, another said. They look like they just smoked some dust. I feel like they trying to disrespect us. They dont live in Harlem. They dont come from Harlem. They come from a strange planet. Its an absolute mockery. Its injustice. Thats a bunch of idiots. Its just a shake, one woman said, but it aint the Harlem Shake. That represents Jersey, California, a woman said. That is not Harlem. The makers of the video asked people what they would like to tell everyone who made a Harlem Shake video. Stop, please. If youre going to make one of these videos, please do the Harlem Shake, not just waving your arms doing the SpongeBob. Stop that s---. Please use the Harlem Shake responsibly! Baauer said in the interview his song is not a homage to Harlem, which makes sense the 23-year-old DJ only lived in Harlem for two years and then moved to Brooklyn. He explained he named the track Harlem Shake after a phrase from a beat he sampled in the song. Baauer spent most of his teen years on the mean streets Teen Center. Nope, thats not a joke; the guy who single-handedly pissed off everyone in Harlem is just a white boy who grew up in a state after Martha Stewarts own heart and who now lives in a part of Brooklyn where scenes from HBOs Girls Of course, in two weeks, when the pop culture machine belches out some other horrible trend for people to go nuts over, the Harlem Shake will be forgotten. In twenty years, when VH1 does an I Heart the 2010s, some comedians will who grew up with real hardcore Harlem hip-hop wont forget the punk who misappropriated their decades-old dance. Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays.Fightin Florida: Were taking down Russia or somethingHold onto your seats, folks. Florida might have just done something awesome. Its at the expense, though, of Russian lawmaker Vladimir A. Pekhtin. A senior lawmaker from Russias ruling party, who was also the chairman of Parliaments ethics committee, resigned from the legislature on Wednesday over revelations that he owned more than $1.3 million worth of luxury real estate in Florida that he did not list on required disclosure forms, reported The New York Times. The ethics committee he was in charge of was part of the State Duma, a lower house in Russias parliament. The Duma has been a hotbed of passionate anti-American activity recently, passing laws forcing organizations that receive funds from abroad to register as foreign agents, banning adopington Post. The fact that the dude in charge of something pretty antiAmerican owned a whole bunch of luxury property in Florida makes him look so, so bad. He left his position over this whole issue, all because a blogger from the opposition made allegations toward his property-owning status. Last week, Alexei Navalny, an anti-corruption activist, posted compromising photographs and property records showing Pekhtins name on the deeds to two condos in Miami Beach and another in Ormond Beach, reported The Washington Post. Pekhtin said the real estate was owned by his son, who lives in the United States, but both names were on the deeds. He soon relinquished the chairmanship of his committee temporarily, he said. He said he had not broken any law, according to The New York Times, but that there are very controversial documents that have been made public on the Internet, and it was necessary to clear up obvious legal misunderstandings. How hysterical is it that Florida is again at the center of a political scandal? We didnt do anything too bad this time, though. President Vladimir Putin has been trying to seize the anticorruption mantle from the opposition and has proposed a law or bank accounts, although it leaves property ownership untouched, stated The Washington Post. Ha, good luck, buddy. There are few things you can learn from the United States as a whole; an easy lesson is how to be corrupt in government. Weve got this one covered. The opposition party or forces (basically, the people who dont always side with the government or with Putin) are the ones who are pro-anti-corruption. Russian authorities have frequently fought against bloggers like Navalny by bringing charges of fraud against those rebellious people. Sorry Florida was so intriguing to your lawmakers that they too pristine or that our Spanish food is sometimes on point. We realize were writing an editorial about a country that will never read this, let alone change their entire basis of policy on our small words. Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 For the past four years, Americans have been waiting for the solution to the economy they thought would have come sooner. President Barack Obama said Americans had to answer historys call in the light of a potential second depression. This time, as he entered the House chamber and looked in the television cameras, he focused on the idea that creating middle class jobs must be the North Star that guides our [economic] efforts. While there are many important issues that face this country, I was pleased the president brought up manufacturing. He said Washington must guarantee that the next revolution in manufacturing is Made in America. With issues facing this country. Now is the time for Congress facturing. Though there have been signs of erosion, the American manufacturing industry is still one of the largest in the world. A January 2012 Congressional Research Service report found that Americas share of global manufacturing activity has decreased in recent years. Chinas manufacturing sector is almost as large as in the United States. One of the common arguments related to manufacturing thrown around recently is that American companies are outsourcing jobs to other countries because their labor laws allow manufacturing operations to be However, this is not as big of an issue as most Americans think it is. As the Bureau of Labor Statistics has found, the effect of outsourcing has been minimal. In the third quarter of 2012, when more than 100,000 workers were laid off, ers had their jobs moved to another country. An article from The Atlantic reported that American jobs in America and have, in fact, started to insource jobs. Chinas Foxconn, the Chinese manufacturing giant, is actually planning on increasing their operations in the United States. American companies are realizing the effect outsourcing will have on the economy. On the other hand, whats preventing companies from producing in the United States is the attractiveness of production in other countries. Part of the issue is the value of the dollar made producing goods in the United States less attractive than other countries with cheaper labor, production costs and lower marginal tax rates. If America wants to become more competitive in this regard, the federal government must be willing to create a plan that provides subsidies and lowers tax rates for businesses and manufactures that [will] create jobs right here in America. This would help reduce the costs of production in the U.S., which would make companies more willing to attract new jobs without having to reduce workers salaries. One point Obama has been stressing is that increasing our focus on alternative energy will make America a stronger manufacturing country. According to the Department of Energy, in August 2012, the wind sector was employing ,000 American workers, including workers at manufacturing facilities up and down the supply chain, as well as engineers and construction workers who build and operate the wind farms. energy manufacturing. On top of providing jobs, it will help Americans save money on energy consumption. This is the direction the manufacturing sector is going. If we fail to recognize the importance of alternative energy, America will fall behind. Manufacturing is what has driven America throughout the past century. If we plan to give up on manufacturing, we are throwing the future of this country away. But words can only go so far. This plan will not completely revive the American car industry or the steel industry. Although its not complete, President Obamas plan will make American manufacturing industry more competitive than it is today so that we can be authors of the next great chapter in our American story. Paul Sherman is a columnist for the Michigan Daily at the University of Michigan.Obama has a manufacturing solution UWirePaul ShermanUWire The big day came and went: Valentines Day. Its a time of celebrating companionship or loneliness, depending on your situation. Its a day of broken expectations and extravagant surprises, depending on your luck. The geeky shy girl prayed ers and chocolates he didnt. The spoiled girlfriend posted a picture of the $100 items her boyfriend gave her she made us jealous. The girl dating the bad boy waited to see her man in a suit and tie at a fancy restaurant he didnt even show up. Every year, for every girl, Feb. 14 is marked on our calendars as test day. We give guys no choice. My barely single guy friends from around campus had the most dreadful experiences last week. Here are some perspectives from my guy friends from different majors around campus: Economics: The money wasted on Valentines Day can solve the debt crisis. Im always single, but I look for a date a few months ahead. Not too early. The price of the present she expects grows exponentially. Not too late. Shell have made plans supporting her single and weeping friends. But, as always, I ended up with my nerdy engineering friends. We bought beer and played Xbox all night. Bromance counts, too, right? Chemistry: Im busy trying to get into med school; if not, dentistry. Then, pharmacy and law school as a last resort. I have no time for a girlfriend. My engaged friend created an account for me on www. OkCupid.com, but the girls there are after my prestigious degree and future. Maybe Im bitter because he starts saving months in advance for his high school sweetheart. Hes too busy and poor to afford the necessities: football games and drinks at Balls. The only thing he talks about is what expensive presents he should buy her and what the look on her face will be. He lives for the words, I love you. Youre a keeper. After six years of dating, he is still afraid of losing her. Better to be single than that insecure, right? French and music: Chicks dig musicians and French men. Im not really French, but my great-great-grandpa was German. That counts. Im classy, and I didnt take her to the typical romantic dinner. Actually, I tried to make a reservation too late. We went on a picnic, and I played her a French song with my guitar. It was barely French. She loved it anyway. Then, I surprised her with a bottle of Chteauneuf-duPape, a red wine I cant really pronounce. The taste was unbearable, but she pretended to like it, and together we got drunk. I puked and got stopped by the cops for drivJournalism guy: Im not a conformist, and I totally didnt enter the holiday aisle at Walgreens. But I did try to get laid by a girl in my newspaper editing class. Ive known her since she cried in reporting. Theres too much fuss about Valentines Day, but this was my chance. I make such a big deal of everything, from grammar to girls. I decided to just ask her out next month. Im more cool and casual than a follower anyways. Wait, Im never getting married. Whats the point? Mechanical engineering: There are only three girls in my thermodynamics class. The odds are in my favor that shed be mine. Ive let her cheat off me on every exam since sophomore year. She loves my intelligence, and she owes me anyway. Or so I thought. I borrowed my roommates BMW and showed up at her dorm room. I obnoxiously overdressed, gave a canned speech and handed her roses. She started laughing. I looked behind her and saw a shirtless guy. Theyre probably just friends, right?

JACLYN ROSENAlligator Contributing WriterStudents got down and dirty in dough for the annual dog-eat-dog Hamantaschen Bake-Off at UF Hillel on Wednesday night. pastries that are traditionally eaten for the Jewish holiday Purim, which begins Saturday. The shape of the cookies symbolizes the hat of Haman, the villain of Purims historic story. We eat the cookies to remember that we were saved from this bad guy, said Melanie Miller, 19-year-old Torah Advancement Program treasurer and UF political science freshman. Torah Advancement Program, the newest Jewish grassroots organization, competed against Koach, the Conservative Judaism organization, and Kesher, the Reform Judaism organization. For the bake-off, some cookie competitors deGirl Scouts Samoa, cheesecake, Nutella and MarshOur hamantaschen is just simple, and its the beauty in being simple. Its a very traditional recipe, said 22-year-old bake-off winner and president of Koach Stefani Pila, a UF psychology and history senior. In the spirit of Purim, Hillels campus impact specialist Jeffrey Kaplan plans to build the worlds largest grogger. The 27-year-old entrepreneurship graduate student said groggers are noisemakers used as part of the Purim celebration, and his goal is to create a 5-by-8 foot grogger using brackets, swivel casters and screws. The original grogger is 3-by-6 inches.Bake-off offers sharp competition CARLA VIANNAAlligator Contributing WriterBrowsing the Internet and downloading apps just got a whole lot faster for Gainesville residents and UF students. AT&T announced Tuesday that their 4G LTE network went live throughout the city. Company spokeswoman Michele Money-Carson wrote in an email that the network service will be available for about 40 compatible devices such as tablets and smartphones. AT&T now joins Verizon Wireless, which expanded its own 4G LTE network last year, in providing the service throughout Gainesville. LTE, which stands for long-term evolution, loading up to 10 times faster than 3G, according to the AT&Ts website. Gainesville AT&T stores have been anticipating the launch.

In the past month, the mall has seen Suki Hana, Lotus Express and Great Steak & Potato Company, once prominently located side by side in the malls food court, close their doors. It was a combination of a said Amber Williams, general manager of the Red Mango on the other side of the food court. A spokeswoman for the restaurants leases ended with the beginning of the new year, and they did not renew. She added that Charleys Grilled Subs, Asian Chao and Maki of Japan are set to replace the old restaurants in the coming months. The new managers, however, could not be reached for comment. In the meantime, mall employees and customers will continue to eat at the food court. Farran Kountz, a 22-yearold UF dietetics senior, works at the Abercrombie & Fitch store next to the food court. I buy my lunch every day I work, but the store closings have eliminated a lot of healthier choices, she said. The only place I can go to for healthy, hot food is Great Wraps.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013 Ariel Barnes This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http:// mediocreadvicegators. tumblr.com/ask Dear Perfect Friend, A lot of guys think that plowing a girl is the best way to make her moan false. They rely on the reviews of their past partners, who may have been overly generous to avoid being rude. The result is a sexually ignorant and cocky man. Thats a problem for the future ladies who will have a useless head between their legs. Good sex is about communication. The reason you dont know how to tell a guy that he doesnt know jack s--t about vaginas is the same reason he may think hes a sexual master. This is a waste of time for one-night stands, so teach this lesson to someone you think will stick around. Use dirty talk to guide your partner when he/she seems to lose track of what he/she is doing down there. Tell him/her what you want and where you want it. He/ she should catch on. In the heat of the moment, guiding someone isnt awkward or rude because the other person is only in your lady-land to please you. He/she wants to help you by lending an instruction manual. Dear Mediocre Advice, Im a girl who likes receiving oral, but there are so many guys who cant seem to master the task. How do you kindly show a partner how to please you? Im shocked that so many guys dont know a damn thing about the female body. Dear Friend, Keep it casual. She wants the with anyone now. You should keep in touch, but shes probably not ready for another relationship at this point, even if she says otherwise. Starting a long-distance relationship with someone you barely know is not worth it, and from my personal experience, a mistake. Stay friends. Dear Mediocre Advice, I hooked up with a girl who just got out of a three-year relationship. Everything was very casual because she no longer lives in town. I like her, and shes interested in continuing this, but Im a massive opponent to longdistance relationships. What do I do? Dear Friend, You have a better chance at becoming a wizard than avoiding razor bumps. Just wax instead. The idea of a razor near private parts is scarier than wolf spiders. Dear Mediocre Advice, I have been manicuring my pubic region for years now and still have not mastered how to avoid those unsightly shaving bumps. Ive tried everything. Any advice? THE BAR OPENED FRIDAY. JORDAN ALBRIGHTAvenue Contributing WriterSinging at the top of their lungs Oops! ... I Did It Again, Material Girl and What Makes You Beautiful, six girls stood microphones in hand belting, laughing and dancing the night away. It seemed like the girls were in their living room, surrounded by sofas, ottomans and a big screen TV, shedding inhibitions with each lyric. Then, they opened the door. The room that made them feel at home was rented from Stage 7-KTV, a new private karaoke-room venue and bar that celebrated its grand opening Friday. Stage 7, 4110 SW 34th St., Suite 1, is open from 1 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday. Patrons can reserve private soundproof rooms with high-end karaoke equipment, mood lighting, microphones, a speaker system, furniture and a large screen TV. Stage 7s bar sells snacks and serves alcoholic and nonalcoholic bever ages. The venue offers varying sizes of rooms that can hold up to 30 people. Prices per room range from $19 to $119 an hour depending on the day of the week, time and room size. Cecilla Padilla, a 20-year-old English and theater sophomore, was one of the girls singingat a birthday party during Stage 7s grand opening weekend. Its great for college students, Padilla said. Pricing wasnt too expensive, and you can bring big groups with you. Founders Martin Elkins, a 24-yearold UF business administration graduate student, and Wei Fan, a 24-year-old UF alumnus, met at The Entrepreneur ship Club at UF in April of last year. Fan wanted to bring his knowledge of the Karaoke TV abbreviated KTV craze in China to the U.S. So, he partnered with Elkins, who has experience with Amer ican bars and clubs, to create Stage 7. In Asia, Karaoke venues are more popular than bars are in America, Elkins said. Its everything you want to do at karaoke, but not in front of strangers,he said. There are more than 50,000 songs to choose from in several languages including English, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese and Filipino. Jisoo Kim, a 20-year-old UF biology sophomore, said she often sees the karaoke bars on Korean news. The venues are extremely competitive, sometimes lining entire streets. She has been to places like Stage 7 in Orlando and Jacksonville with her friends and family for stress relief and relaxation, singing in both English and Korean. Its just fun bonding time, she said.Karaoke bar harmonizes with Gainesville entertainment BECCA GOLDRINGAvenue WriterSriracha, cheesy garlic bread, have more in common than being staples of a freshmen dorm diet. Last week, Lays released the million people submitted their suggestions for the Do Us a Favor crowdsourcing campaign. I am a foodie. My palate is taste buds with these disgusting potato-chip versions of these curip them apart. Sriracha, a popular Thai hot sauce with a cultlike following, is the most promising option of the three. Sure, its great on french fries or breakfast sandwiches, but is it really necessary to put it on ice cream or peanut butter sandwiches? Yes, people really do that. (A Sriracha cookbook even exists you cant make this stuff up.) Who knows, maybe Sriracha and potato chips will be a perfect match, but the combination could also be a blasphemous offense if justice. Of course, you could always cover them in more Sriracha. tions, I feel there must have been something more interesting than betting the bread part of the equation will be nonexistent as the base is a potato, but the gar lic and cheese might complement each other nicely. However, what kind of cheese are we talking here? Theres a clear difference between under tones of sharp cheddar and Cheeto dust. To be determined. Id really like to meet the per son who submitted Chicken and Id like to meet the Lays employee who thought, Yes. This will be a good idea. Proteins are not meant to be turned into potato chips. Just imagine the unmentionable things they are doing to obtain chicken taste. The bag features a drumstick cheap maple syrup. So, salty potato maple syrup, eh? I think Ill keep the Aunt Jemima strictly for my pancakes. If youre a potato chip lover, dont miss this tasty opportunity to vote for your favorite via the Lays Facebook page, by texting VOTE to 24477 or by using the Twitter hashtags #SaveSriracha, GarlicBread by May 4. The winner will receive $1 million or 1 percent of 2013 sales, whichever is higher, and the runners-up will receive $50,000 each. Overall, I think Sriracha has the most to lose, but if Chicken out, youll have to hand me a bag of them immediately so I can throw up in it. COURTNEY NACHLASAvenue Contributing WriterWant to become a Kendrick Lamar fan in time for the show? Drank, as the rapper would suggest. Once you dive into Lamars music, youll hear a wide variety of sounds, unlike other rap. His most popular song, Swimming Pools (Drank), is not all he should be known for. On Monday, Lamar will perform at the Stephen C. OConnell Center. If you want to become a Lamar fan quickly, here is our suggested playlist to prepare you for the epic show ahead: B---h, Dont Kill My Vibe (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) Though the title may scare some of you away, the song has more to it than youd think. Its upbeat with a super-chill tempo perfect for vibing anywhere. The message is to let people do their own thing and to stop putting others down (thus killing their vibe). Money Trees feat. Jay Rock (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) Just got that new job in Gainesville and feel like celebrating now that you dont have to ask your parents for every penny? If so, Money Trees is the song for you. Whats more inspiring than singing Money Trees is the perfect place for shade over and over again to yourself? The Art of Peer Pressure (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) This fast-paced song is relatable and great to listen to when youre feeling socially pressured. Essentially, its Lamars commentary on life in the ghetto and how his endo drugs. It speaks truthfully in how an environment can make or break a person. HiiiPoWeR (Album: Section.80) One of Lamars most famous songs displays not only his diverse beats but his liberal ideals throughout his lyrics. The song discusses an important movement taking place called HiiiPoWeR. The three is represent having heart, honor and respect for yourself, no matter what youre going through. The song references the civil movement and applies HiiiPoWeR to historic events. Hol Up (Album: Section.80) To make sure weve covered all of the bases, were going to jump into some more of Lamars older music. The songs jazzy and unusual beat makes it deserve a prime spot on your iPod. Basically, this song is Lamars version of Kanyes Good Life, where he describes his life after he made it big. Its motivational and calming, so its perfect no matter what kind of mood you are in. Now or Never feat. Mary J. Blige (Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city) To tie up your Kendrick knowledge with one perfect, little bow, we proudly present the stinger, Now or Never. Its a bonus track on YOLO for us. Its about investing in the present because when opportunity knocks on your door, you dont want to let it pass you by. Now that youre a Kendrick Lamar fan, you wont be shunned by your friends for not knowing the lyrics during his performance. Tickets are available online for $17.30 (plus fees) on Ticketmaster and $10 with a Gator 1 Card Drank up.
