THERE ARE 115 CARDINALS TO CHOOSE FROM. ANDREW KAYSAlligator Contributing WriterThe College of Cardinals is set to begin the deliberation for a new pope today in Rome, a decision that will resonate across the world including in Gainesville. The Rev. Marek Dzien, of Gainesvilles St. Augustine Church and Catholic Student Center, said he compared the relationship between the pope and local congregations to that of Washington D.C. and the states. For 95 percent of Catholics, its more important whats happening in their parish than in Rome, he said. But when a big decision is made, it affects everybody. The election process, also known as Conclave, will have 115 cardinals locked in the Chapel until they select the new leader of Catholicism. Conclave comes almost two weeks after Pope Benedict XVI resigned from his pain nearly 600 years. The process to choose a new pope is straightforward: Members of the college who can travel to Rome and are under the age of 80 take part in the electoral ritual. Four times a day, the cardinals write the name of their choice on a slip of paper and place it into a golden urn in front of Michelangelos Judgement Day painting. Three cardinals are chosen to count and College of Cardinals begin process of pope selection today NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterAs of today, UF students remotely access programs such as Adobe Photoshop and AutoCAD without having to pay. UFApps, produced through ogy, is an online network that allows UF students to use thousands of dollars worth of software for free on any platform. We wanted to make software more accessible for students, Jameson Johnston, project coordinator for UFApps, wrote in an email. Students have more and more access to mobile devices and laptop computers, and UFApps allows for access to popular computer software from anywhere at any time it is the next step in the evolution of computer application technology. According to the proposal, the startup costs for the program totaled more than $150,000. Licensing alone cost about $37,000. The program is funded through the Student Tech Fee proposal. All UF students pay this fee, which costs up to 5 percent of the tuition per credit hour. According to the UF Factbooks breakdown of student tuition and fees for the 20102011 school year, this fee was $4.78 a credit hour. Every January, faculty, staff and students submit proposals regarding a technical idea in need of funding. Last years proposals included UFApps, written by Michael Kutyna, and since its approval in Spring 2012, developers have handled all aspects of the program launch, said Tracy Gale, UF InStudents, faculty can now access software programs for freeCAMPUS ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterProfessor Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor and author of Night, will speak tonight at UF. Hosted by Accent Speakers Bureau and Jewish Awareness Month, Wiesel will speak about his experiences in the Auschwitz concentration camp and his career as an author. The program starts at 8 p.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Student tickets are free and can be picked up from noon to tickets will be distributed at 7 p.m. Accent Chairman Josh Holtzman said Wiesel was chosen to speak because his message is not limited to the Jewish community. Its a message of understanding and facing the challenges of humanity and knowing the best and worst that people are capable of, said the 22-yearold UF history and political science senior. Wiesel is being paid $53,000, and Accent is paying $35,000 of that. The rest of the money is coming from Jewish Awareness Month, Holtzman said. Ari Sokolov, a 20-year-old UF environmental science junior, will be in attendance. He is a living part of history, he said.

record the votes. If there isnt a two-thirds majority for any candidate, the slips of paper are burned, and a black smoke emerges from the Chapels chimney, signaling there will be another vote. Once a majority is reached, however, white smoke signals will show that a new pope was chosen. The newly-elected pope then chooses time. Dzien said he doesnt think the next pope is likely to make too many changes. He does believe a more conservative pope will be chosen. Jordan Kassabaum, a 21-year-old UF religion and classics senior, agreed, but thinks a non-European pope would be I think doing that would be a good thing because it would show that the church really is the universal church, Catholic meaning universal, not just the European church, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 LOCAL CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents might be alarmed to know just how stable or unstable the ground they walk on is. Anthony Randazzo, a UF professor emeritus of geological sciences and president of Geohazards a group that evaluates areas for sinkholes said Gainesville is at high risk when it comes to sinkhole for mation. However, he said, residents shouldnt be worried that an event like the Tampa-area Seffner sinkhole, which trapped one person Feb. 28, will happen here. [Gainesville is] probably ahead of Seffner in terms of the number of sinkholes, probably behind Seffner in terms of the catastrophic kind of sinkholes the ones that swallow up a home in a matter of hours, Randazzo said. He added sinkholes form as a result of eroding limestone near the Earths surface. Over time, the erosion creates cavities, which can get bigger and no longer support the weight of the ground above them. Randazzo said the 20-foot-wide and 50to 60-foot deep Seffner sinkhole, which swallowed and killed Jeffrey Bush, 37, while he was sleeping, is rare. This is only the third time in 40 years ... that I have documented a case of a fatality associated with the formation of a sinkhole, he said. Donald Sessions, special operations chief at Gainesville Fire Rescue, said he doesnt think residents should panic because of the Seffner tragedy. All of Florida presents a risk just because of the land, he said. When sinkholes open up here, its been in rural areas. Sessions said GFR doesnt have handle those types of emergencies. Its part of our technical rescue: rope rescue, trench collapse, structural collapse, he said. All of these things are elements that we train on and have specialty teams that respond to them. Randazzo and Sessions both said residents should monitor their homes for signs of damage such as slabs or strange noises that could all be a precursor to a sinkhole.Gainesville at high risk for sinkholes, experts say, but dont panic POPE, from page 1 Smoke will appear after decisionGatorlink is required to useformation Technology spokeswoman.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAlfredo Espinosa may not be the obvious person to run for City Commission, but that isnt stopping him. The 20-year-old UF building construction junior is running for the District 4 seat in the Gainesville City Commission. I wanted to do something different, the Venezuelan native said. District 4 covers the main UF campus and the area behind Midtown, which includes student housing. Espinosa, who moved to the United States when he was 6 years old, said UFs Student Body is underrepresented on the city level. If elected, Espinosa said he wants to give district residents a voice in the commission. Im here to listen and here to hear them out, he said. Espinosa said being a student wouldnt affect the time he would dedicate to his job as a commissioner. As a student, he said he would pick his own schedule and focus on City Commission during business hours and take classes during other times. Espinosa said he wants to enact a soft closing of bars at 2 a.m. and cut utility rates. In the past year, rates went up 10 percent, which is a hardship to both students and businesses in the district, he said. With an interest in building construction and project management, Espinosa said he wants to speak with builders and developers Espinosa said he also plans to tackle the issue of homelessness. He said the city should work with situational homeless families to ensure they dont become permanently homeless. Our community deserves better, he said. Espinosas last goal is to create a pro-business-friendly environment in the district. He said Gainesville has a lot of innovation but no capital. We need to make Gainesville attractive to outsiders, he said. Espinosa has lived in Gainesville since starting at UF in 2010. He said his experience as a Preview staffer last summer will help him immensely if elected. He said he worked about 70 hours a week in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment where he worked with people of different backgrounds. It was my motivation to help people and give back, Espinosa said. During that time, Espinosa met his campaign manager Ryan Garcia. Garcia, a 22-year-old UF economics and history senior, said he was volunteering at convocation when he met Espinosa. He would bring a lot of energy, passion and frankly, intelligence to the commission, Garcia said. Garcia said Espinosa is relatable and per sonable to most people. Hes always willing to listen and hear everyone out, he said. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.

New York City may be the city that never sleeps, but it almost slept on something pretty important: soda legislation. For some reason, the day before Mayor Michael Bloombergs controversial soda ban would take effect, New York Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling in Manhattan overruled it. Sort of. Back in September, the citys Board of Health approved Bloombergs plan to limit the size of sugary soft drinks sold in restaurants, movie theaters, stadiums and arenas to no more than 16 ounces a cup. In October, groups representing beverage makers, restauthe measure, reported Bloomberg, the news publication, not the mayor. They called the ban unprecedented interference with consumer choice. In anticipation of the soda ban, Bloomberg on Monday released new data tying sugary drinks to the citys fattest neighborhoods, said a CNN Money article. The new city study showed nine of the neighborhoods with the 10 highest obesity rates were also the highest in sugary drink consumption. At the other end, the three least obese neighborhoods were also the lowest in sugary drink consumption. Were pretty sure people should just, at the very least, try not to ruin themselves. People are complaining that the state is attempting to take too much control over everyones everyday lives, but, like, maybe dont drink giant sugary soft drinks. Is that too much to ask? This is America, they yell. We can do whatever we please. It is arbitrary and capricious because it applies to some but not all food establishments in the city, it excludes other beverages ers and/or calories on suspect grounds, and the loopholes inherent in the rule ... serve to gut the purpose of the rule, Tingling wrote. Whats crazy to us is the judge waited until the day before the ban was going to start to make any kind of decision on this challenge. Like, did you forget this was coming up, dude? Are businesses just complaining about losing customers even though this decision will make customers healthier? And dont try to claim this ban wouldnt, at least, make small strides toward a healthier New York City. The mayor released a study that clearly illustrated what people this ban would positively affect. Nearly 60 percent of New York City adults and 40 percent of city schoolchildren are overweight or obese, reported the CNN Money article. Those numbers are only slightly higher than the national average, as about 36 percent of Americans are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thats one-third of the adults in this country. It doesnt seem like we, as an American society, can be trusted to make our own decisions when it comes to junk food.Will NYC lead the charge after all?Google Glass is a case of dreams vs. realityI know some harbinger of doom says this every single year, but I really do believe Americans will have to have a come-to-Jesus moment with their technology pretty soon. Maybe we will need public service announcements of some kind, or maybe some sort of visual reminder. Im thinking of one of those little rubber bracelets that usually say LIVESTRONG or WWJD but instead one side the other side reads, No, probably not. What Im trying to say is Google Glass is dumb. There. I said it. Woo, thats such a weight off my shoulders. Deep breaths, Flannery, deep breaths. The idea of Google Glass itself is dumb. A hands-free device that can take and share point-of-view pictures and photos or that can use Google or Google Maps without you pressing buttons? Absolutely brilliant. I am sure everyone at some point has thought, Man, if only [person] could see what I am seeing right now. Now to say we have the tech to do just that is a little mind-blowing. But like every other brilliantly innovative piece of techwill probably just disgrace its originally intended one. When Google itself was invented, I bet the programmers dreamed of a virtual space where knowledge and experience could be freely traded across people and cultures, instead of a gateway platform for people with large amounts of free time to search for porn and videos of cats doing funny things. Was that example blown a little out of proportion? Yes, but I was trying to make a point. We vastly underuse the technological resources given to us. Im not necessarily saying that is a bad thing, but believe me, a few years from now when I see someone walking around wearing Google Glass, I wont think, Man, that person must be a highly-sophisticated multitasking individual. I will think, That person is probably watching porn or cat videos right now. And just stepped out in front of a bus. The promotional videos Google has pushed out to promote Glass have all featured regular people using Glass as they all do wildly adventurous things like skydiving or taking trips in hot air balloons, which makes sense. Wouldnt it be incredible to see a gymnasts routine through her eyes or to see the New Years ball drop from the perspective of someone in Times Square? More likely, the techy-type people who are willing to fork over $1,500 for a still-in-market-testing product are probably not the people doing the skydiving or hot air balloon trips. Google is desperately trying to appeal to the everyday consumer, and in its haste to launch a product, I think it forgot the everyday consumer lives a pretty boring life. Looking over the promotional material and blog post hype, I thought about what I would use Glass for. I came to the conclusion that I would use it to record and share local concerts with my friends and to look up pictures of baby hedgehogs. Which isnt all bad who couldnt use more hedgehogs in life? but I still dont think that would justify me dropping a grand and a half on it. When advertisements for the next shiny thing come along, always feel free to stop and ask yourself the hardhitting question, Is that really the best use of my money and free time? Be honest with yourself because the more sophisticated the technology, the more it tends to make fools of us all. Im sure everyone thought when they got a Twitter, they would share their vast amounts of witty quips and wisdoms with the world instead of complaining about their jobs and taking duck-face pictures.

TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 LIFESTYLE BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterBetween work and classes, students dont always have time to sort out the sincere sweethearts from pretentious players in their departments, let alone their campuses. But Datemyschool.com, which has been advertised around UF, is hoping to resolve this problem. UF has about 500 students on the network, said Zachary Hayworth, director of national operations for Date My School. The site, founded in 2010 at Columbia University, has about 209,000 users and seeks to connect students to potential boyfriends, girlfriends or just friends around their universities who they wouldnt otherwise meet. Adriana Di Graziano, a 20-year-old UF public relations freshman and a campus ambassador for the company, said a week after the site launched, about 5 percent of Columbias Student Body registered for the site, which prompted founders to expand to other univer sities. The sites co-founder, Balazs Alexa, wrote in an email that he is excited to have UF involved in the site. UF is an incredibly important anchor school for us in Florida, given its positive reputation and sheer size of 50,000+ students, he said. Although other campuses regularly have 200 students sign up a week, Di Graziano said she has seen recent increases in UF numbers. Only individuals with .edu email addresses can join the site, which includes current under graduates, graduates and alumni. Although users cannot search by name for privacy purposes, they can exclude individuals from viewing their information. No one will know that you are there unless you want them to, Di Graziano said. Although UFs activity is still growing, schools like Columbia and New York Univer sity have a combined 17,000 user base. My dream is to have a similar user base at UF as what we have in New York schools, Alexa said. So if we would become responsible for 50+ percent of dates happening on campus I would be happy. UF public relations senior Saphira Lazarre said she considers this new site to be another categorical dating website. to online dating, the 21-year-old said. Im an old-fashioned girl. Id rather meet someone personally and use it in terms of networking.New dating website reaches UF THE BILL WAS INTRODUCED TO THE FLORIDA SENATE MARCH 5. JOVAHN HUERTASAlligator Contributing WriterUF student Guy Ginton may not need medical marijuana, but he supports it for people who do. Eighteen states, plus the District of Columbia, allow the use of medical mar ijuana, and Florida may be next. Florida State Sen. Jeff Clemens, DMedical Cannabis Act on Feb. 27, which would allow for the possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes in Florida. The bill is named for Cathy Jordan, the president of the Florida Cannabis Action Network, who has Lou Gehrigs disease. Her house was raided by police, seizing the marijuana she was using to treat her condition. Her case really demonstrates a lot of whats going on right now, said Ginton, 21, an UF economics junior and former president of UFs chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Ginton said he feels people should have full rights to use marijuana as medicine. Right now, you have people who can be treated with this medicine and arent able, he said. Its a weird situation in certain states you can be treated, but in others you cant. A recent poll showed as many as seven in 10 Florida voters would support a state constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. The poll, which was conducted by People United for Medical Marijuana, showed 24 per cent of respondents opposed medical marijuana. The bill was introduced to the Florida Senate on March 5. But UF anthropology sophomore Mariah Nelson, 19, said she would vote against medical marijuana. I dont think it should be smoked, she said. There are other, healthier ways to relieve stress and pain.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 Javier Edwards / Alligator StaffJunior forward Will Yeguete dribbles during Floridas 66-40 victory against Vanderbilt on March 6 in the OConnell Center.Yeguete played 19 minutes vs. UKturnovers late in the second half resulted from miscommunication. Kentucky defenders stole two of Rosarios passes in the last 10 minutes. Two passes from Wilbekin a dish intended for guard Kenny Boynton on the right wing and a lob pass to forward Casey Prather for a dunk sailed out of bounds. The building was loud, and I called a play. Boynton thought I called something else, Donovan said. He kind of got confused. Then when he realized what I called, he was running to get into the action when Scottie threw it to him. So it was kind of a miscommunication, which was hard. Prather is open on a backdoor lob, wide open. Scottie throws a lefty pass with one hand. It goes off Prathers hands and goes out of bounds. We have to execute that, because it was open and was the right pass, but a poorly executed pass. Yeguete feeling better: After missing six games in February due to arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips in his right increased playing time. In Floridas loss to Kentucky, Yeguete logged 19 minutes, his highest total since Jan. 30. The junior forward recorded four points, six rebounds and two assists against the Wildcats. Yeguete back to close to where he was at, Donovan said after Saturdays game. Added Yeguete: Im doing rehab every single day, even though we have days off. Taking care of my knee every day, after practice and before practice. So far, its good. Yeguete returned from injury on March 2 against Alabama, but logged only 23 combined minutes in two games prior to Saturday. the SEC Tournament on Friday, Yeguete is preparing for the challenge of possibly playing three days in a row. I dont think you have any choice, Yeguete said. Every player is going to be tired, and every player is going to be sore. BasASKeETBaALL, from page 13

Marek Dzien, of Gainesvilles St. Augustine Church and Catholic Student Center, said he compared the relationship between the pope and local congregations to that of Washington D.C. and the states. For 95 percent of Catholics, its more important whats happening in their parish than in Rome, he said. But when a big decision is made, it affects everybody. The election process, also known as Conclave, will have 115 cardinals locked in the Chapel until they select the new leader of Catholicism. Conclave comes almost two weeks after Pope Benedict XVI resigned from his pain nearly 600 years. The process to choose a new pope is straightforward: Members of the college who can travel to Rome and are under the age of 80 take part in the electoral ritual. Four times a day, the cardinals write the name of their choice on a slip of paper and place it into a golden urn in front of Michelangelos Judgement Day painting. Three cardinals are chosen to count and College of Cardinals begin process of pope selection today NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterAs of today, UF students remotely access programs such as Adobe Photoshop and AutoCAD without having to pay. UFApps, produced through ogy, is an online network that allows UF students to use thousands of dollars worth of software for free on any platform. We wanted to make software more accessible for students, Jameson Johnston, project coordinator for UFApps, wrote in an email. Students have more and more access to mobile devices and laptop computers, and UFApps allows for access to popular computer software from anywhere at any time it is the next step in the evolution of computer application technology. According to the proposal, the startup costs for the program totaled more than $150,000. Licensing alone cost about $37,000. The program is funded through the Student Tech Fee proposal. All UF students pay this fee, which costs up to 5 percent of the tuition per credit hour. According to the UF Factbooks breakdown of student tuition and fees for the 20102011 school year, this fee was $4.78 a credit hour. Every January, faculty, staff and students submit proposals regarding a technical idea in need of funding. Last years proposals included UFApps, written by Michael Kutyna, and since its approval in Spring 2012, developers have handled all aspects of the program launch, said Tracy Gale, UF InStudents, faculty can now access software programs for freeCAMPUS ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterProfessor Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor and author of Night, will speak tonight at UF. Hosted by Accent Speakers Bureau and Jewish Awareness Month, Wiesel will speak about his experiences in the Auschwitz concentration camp and his career as an author. The program starts at 8 p.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Student tickets are free and can be picked up from noon to tickets will be distributed at 7 p.m. Accent Chairman Josh Holtzman said Wiesel was chosen to speak because his message is not limited to the Jewish community. Its a message of understanding and facing the challenges of humanity and knowing the best and worst that people are capable of, said the 22-yearold UF history and political science senior. Wiesel is being paid $53,000, and Accent is paying $35,000 of that. The rest of the money is coming from Jewish Awareness Month, Holtzman said. Ari Sokolov, a 20-year-old UF environmental science junior, will be in attendance. He is a living part of history, he said.

Once a majority is reached, however, white smoke signals will show that a new pope was chosen. The newly-elected pope then chooses time. Dzien said he doesnt think the next pope is likely to make too many changes. He does believe a more conservative pope will be chosen. Jordan Kassabaum, a 21-year-old UF religion and classics senior, agreed, but thinks a non-European pope would be I think doing that would be a good thing because it would show that the church really is the universal church, Catholic meaning universal, not just the European church, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 LOCAL CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents might be alarmed to know just how stable or unstable the ground they walk on is. Anthony Randazzo, a UF professor emeritus of geological sciences and president of Geohazards a group that evaluates areas for sinkholes said Gainesville is at high risk when it comes to sinkhole for mation. However, he said, residents shouldnt be worried that an event like the Tampa-area Seffner sinkhole, which trapped one person Feb. 28, will happen here. [Gainesville is] probably ahead of Seffner in terms of the number of sinkholes, probably behind Seffner in terms of the catastrophic kind of sinkholes the ones that swallow up a home in a matter of hours, Randazzo said. He added sinkholes form as a result of eroding limestone near the Earths surface. Over time, the erosion creates cavities, which can get bigger and no longer support the weight of the ground above them. Randazzo said the 20-foot-wide and 50to 60-foot deep Seffner sinkhole, which swallowed and killed Jeffrey Bush, 37, while he was sleeping, is rare. This is only the third time in 40 years ... that I have documented a case of a fatality associated with the formation of a sinkhole, he said. Donald Sessions, special operations chief at Gainesville Fire Rescue, said he doesnt think residents should panic because of the Seffner tragedy. All of Florida presents a risk just because of the land, he said. When sinkholes open up here, its been in rural areas. Sessions said GFR doesnt have handle those types of emergencies. Its part of our technical rescue: rope rescue, trench collapse, structural collapse, he said. All of these things are elements that we train on and have specialty teams that respond to them. Randazzo and Sessions both said residents should monitor their homes for signs of damage such as slabs or strange noises that could all be a precursor to a sinkhole.Gainesville at high risk for sinkholes, experts say, but dont panic POPE, from page 1 Smoke will appear after decisionGatorlink is required to useformation Technology spokeswoman.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAlfredo Espinosa may not be the obvious person to run for City Commission, but that isnt stopping him. The 20-year-old UF building construction junior is running for the District 4 seat in the Gainesville City Commission. I wanted to do something different, the Venezuelan native said. District 4 covers the main UF campus and the area behind Midtown, which includes student housing. Espinosa, who moved to the United States when he was 6 years old, said UFs Student Body is underrepresented on the city level. If elected, Espinosa said he wants to give district residents a voice in the commission. Im here to listen and here to hear them out, he said. Espinosa said being a student wouldnt affect the time he would dedicate to his job as a commissioner. As a student, he said he would pick his own schedule and focus on City Commission during business hours and take classes during other times. Espinosa said he wants to enact a soft closing of bars at 2 a.m. and cut utility rates. In the past year, rates went up 10 percent, which is a hardship to both students and businesses in the district, he said. With an interest in building construction and project management, Espinosa said he wants to speak with builders and developers Espinosa said he also plans to tackle the issue of homelessness. He said the city should work with situational homeless families to ensure they dont become permanently homeless. Our community deserves better, he said. Espinosas last goal is to create a pro-business-friendly environment in the district. He said Gainesville has a lot of innovation but no capital. We need to make Gainesville attractive to outsiders, he said. Espinosa has lived in Gainesville since starting at UF in 2010. He said his experience as a Preview staffer last summer will help him immensely if elected. He said he worked about 70 hours a week in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment where he worked with people of different backgrounds. It was my motivation to help people and give back, Espinosa said. During that time, Espinosa met his campaign manager Ryan Garcia. Garcia, a 22-year-old UF economics and history senior, said he was volunteering at convocation when he met Espinosa. He would bring a lot of energy, passion and frankly, intelligence to the commission, Garcia said. Garcia said Espinosa is relatable and per sonable to most people. Hes always willing to listen and hear everyone out, he said. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.

New York City may be the city that never sleeps, but it almost slept on something pretty important: soda legislation. For some reason, the day before Mayor Michael Bloombergs controversial soda ban would take effect, New York Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling in Manhattan overruled it. Sort of. Back in September, the citys Board of Health approved Bloombergs plan to limit the size of sugary soft drinks sold in restaurants, movie theaters, stadiums and arenas to no more than 16 ounces a cup. In October, groups representing beverage makers, restauthe measure, reported Bloomberg, the news publication, not the mayor. They called the ban unprecedented interference with consumer choice. In anticipation of the soda ban, Bloomberg on Monday released new data tying sugary drinks to the citys fattest neighborhoods, said a CNN Money article. The new city study showed nine of the neighborhoods with the 10 highest obesity rates were also the highest in sugary drink consumption. At the other end, the three least obese neighborhoods were also the lowest in sugary drink consumption. Were pretty sure people should just, at the very least, try not to ruin themselves. People are complaining that the state is attempting to take too much control over everyones everyday lives, but, like, maybe dont drink giant sugary soft drinks. Is that too much to ask? This is America, they yell. We can do whatever we please. It is arbitrary and capricious because it applies to some but not all food establishments in the city, it excludes other beverages ers and/or calories on suspect grounds, and the loopholes inherent in the rule ... serve to gut the purpose of the rule, Tingling wrote. Whats crazy to us is the judge waited until the day before the ban was going to start to make any kind of decision on this challenge. Like, did you forget this was coming up, dude? Are businesses just complaining about losing customers even though this decision will make customers healthier? And dont try to claim this ban wouldnt, at least, make small strides toward a healthier New York City. The mayor released a study that clearly illustrated what people this ban would positively affect. Nearly 60 percent of New York City adults and 40 percent of city schoolchildren are overweight or obese, reported the CNN Money article. Those numbers are only slightly higher than the national average, as about 36 percent of Americans are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thats one-third of the adults in this country. It doesnt seem like we, as an American society, can be trusted to make our own decisions when it comes to junk food.Will NYC lead the charge after all?Google Glass is a case of dreams vs. realityI know some harbinger of doom says this every single year, but I really do believe Americans will have to have a come-to-Jesus moment with their technology pretty soon. Maybe we will need public service announcements of some kind, or maybe some sort of visual reminder. Im thinking of one of those little rubber bracelets that usually say LIVESTRONG or WWJD but instead one side the other side reads, No, probably not. What Im trying to say is Google Glass is dumb. There. I said it. Woo, thats such a weight off my shoulders. Deep breaths, Flannery, deep breaths. The idea of Google Glass itself is dumb. A hands-free device that can take and share point-of-view pictures and photos or that can use Google or Google Maps without you pressing buttons? Absolutely brilliant. I am sure everyone at some point has thought, Man, if only [person] could see what I am seeing right now. Now to say we have the tech to do just that is a little mind-blowing. But like every other brilliantly innovative piece of techwill probably just disgrace its originally intended one. When Google itself was invented, I bet the programmers dreamed of a virtual space where knowledge and experience could be freely traded across people and cultures, instead of a gateway platform for people with large amounts of free time to search for porn and videos of cats doing funny things. Was that example blown a little out of proportion? Yes, but I was trying to make a point. We vastly underuse the technological resources given to us. Im not necessarily saying that is a bad thing, but believe me, a few years from now when I see someone walking around wearing Google Glass, I wont think, Man, that person must be a highly-sophisticated multitasking individual. I will think, That person is probably watching porn or cat videos right now. And just stepped out in front of a bus. The promotional videos Google has pushed out to promote Glass have all featured regular people using Glass as they all do wildly adventurous things like skydiving or taking trips in hot air balloons, which makes sense. Wouldnt it be incredible to see a gymnasts routine through her eyes or to see the New Years ball drop from the perspective of someone in Times Square? More likely, the techy-type people who are willing to fork over $1,500 for a still-in-market-testing product are probably not the people doing the skydiving or hot air balloon trips. Google is desperately trying to appeal to the everyday consumer, and in its haste to launch a product, I think it forgot the everyday consumer lives a pretty boring life. Looking over the promotional material and blog post hype, I thought about what I would use Glass for. I came to the conclusion that I would use it to record and share local concerts with my friends and to look up pictures of baby hedgehogs. Which isnt all bad who couldnt use more hedgehogs in life? but I still dont think that would justify me dropping a grand and a half on it. When advertisements for the next shiny thing come along, always feel free to stop and ask yourself the hardhitting question, Is that really the best use of my money and free time? Be honest with yourself because the more sophisticated the technology, the more it tends to make fools of us all. Im sure everyone thought when they got a Twitter, they would share their vast amounts of witty quips and wisdoms with the world instead of complaining about their jobs and taking duck-face pictures.

TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 LIFESTYLE BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterBetween work and classes, students dont always have time to sort out the sincere sweethearts from pretentious players in their departments, let alone their campuses. But Datemyschool.com, which has been advertised around UF, is hoping to resolve this problem. UF has about 500 students on the network, said Zachary Hayworth, director of national operations for Date My School. The site, founded in 2010 at Columbia University, has about 209,000 users and seeks to connect students to potential boyfriends, girlfriends or just friends around their universities who they wouldnt otherwise meet. Adriana Di Graziano, a 20-year-old UF public relations freshman and a campus ambassador for the company, said a week after the site launched, about 5 percent of Columbias Student Body registered for the site, which prompted founders to expand to other univer sities. The sites co-founder, Balazs Alexa, wrote in an email that he is excited to have UF involved in the site. UF is an incredibly important anchor school for us in Florida, given its positive reputation and sheer size of 50,000+ students, he said. Although other campuses regularly have 200 students sign up a week, Di Graziano said she has seen recent increases in UF numbers. Only individuals with .edu email addresses can join the site, which includes current under graduates, graduates and alumni. Although users cannot search by name for privacy purposes, they can exclude individuals from viewing their information. No one will know that you are there unless you want them to, Di Graziano said. Although UFs activity is still growing, schools like Columbia and New York Univer sity have a combined 17,000 user base. My dream is to have a similar user base at UF as what we have in New York schools, Alexa said. So if we would become responsible for 50+ percent of dates happening on campus I would be happy. UF public relations senior Saphira Lazarre said she considers this new site to be another categorical dating website. to online dating, the 21-year-old said. Im an old-fashioned girl. Id rather meet someone personally and use it in terms of networking.New dating website reaches UF THE BILL WAS INTRODUCED TO THE FLORIDA SENATE MARCH 5. JOVAHN HUERTASAlligator Contributing WriterUF student Guy Ginton may not need medical marijuana, but he supports it for people who do. Eighteen states, plus the District of Columbia, allow the use of medical mar ijuana, and Florida may be next. Florida State Sen. Jeff Clemens, DMedical Cannabis Act on Feb. 27, which would allow for the possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes in Florida. The bill is named for Cathy Jordan, the president of the Florida Cannabis Action Network, who has Lou Gehrigs disease. Her house was raided by police, seizing the marijuana she was using to treat her condition. Her case really demonstrates a lot of whats going on right now, said Ginton, 21, an UF economics junior and former president of UFs chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Ginton said he feels people should have full rights to use marijuana as medicine. Right now, you have people who can be treated with this medicine and arent able, he said. Its a weird situation in certain states you can be treated, but in others you cant. A recent poll showed as many as seven in 10 Florida voters would support a state constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. The poll, which was conducted by People United for Medical Marijuana, showed 24 per cent of respondents opposed medical marijuana. The bill was introduced to the Florida Senate on March 5. But UF anthropology sophomore Mariah Nelson, 19, said she would vote against medical marijuana. I dont think it should be smoked, she said. There are other, healthier ways to relieve stress and pain.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 Javier Edwards / Alligator StaffJunior forward Will Yeguete dribbles during Floridas 66-40 victory against Vanderbilt on March 6 in the OConnell Center.Yeguete played 19 minutes vs. UKturnovers late in the second half resulted from miscommunication. Kentucky defenders stole two of Rosarios passes in the last 10 minutes. Two passes from Wilbekin a dish intended for guard Kenny Boynton on the right wing and a lob pass to forward Casey Prather for a dunk sailed out of bounds. The building was loud, and I called a play. Boynton thought I called something else, Donovan said. He kind of got confused. Then when he realized what I called, he was running to get into the action when Scottie threw it to him. So it was kind of a miscommunication, which was hard. Prather is open on a backdoor lob, wide open. Scottie throws a lefty pass with one hand. It goes off Prathers hands and goes out of bounds. We have to execute that, because it was open and was the right pass, but a poorly executed pass. Yeguete feeling better: After missing six games in February due to arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips in his right increased playing time. In Floridas loss to Kentucky, Yeguete logged 19 minutes, his highest total since Jan. 30. The junior forward recorded four points, six rebounds and two assists against the Wildcats. Yeguete back to close to where he was at, Donovan said after Saturdays game. Added Yeguete: Im doing rehab every single day, even though we have days off. Taking care of my knee every day, after practice and before practice. So far, its good. Yeguete returned from injury on March 2 against Alabama, but logged only 23 combined minutes in two games prior to Saturday. the SEC Tournament on Friday, Yeguete is preparing for the challenge of possibly playing three days in a row. I dont think you have any choice, Yeguete said. Every player is going to be tired, and every player is going to be sore. BASKETBALL, from page 13
