This year, it rose to 15th among public universities and 36th overall. Director of Hough Graduate Programs Selcuk Erenguc said he is glad to see the school recognized as one of the top Masters of Business Administration programs in the country.

The College of Engineering ranked 38th overall and ranked third in biological/agricultural engineering.

Last week, it was reported that a man had 75 percent of his skull replaced with a 3-D printed replica. That triumph is exciting on its own, but imagine what it tells us about the future. Imagine walking into a hospital years from now and being able to print out a new knee or shin on demand, good as new. Tissues of certain organs, like kidneys, can already be grown in a lab from stem cells. Imagine a future in which we could swap out our old, decaying organs for fresh ones.

In fact, several people have regenerated portions of their a model airplane propeller. Using a special powder, he was print all with full sensation. Now imagine the more distant future. We can already replace many of our original body parts with new ones when the old ones are damaged. Would it be unrealistic to think humans will one day replace alreadyworking organic parts with new and improved ones? Maybe people will swap out their old eyes for new ones that can see farther or toss out their old legs for new ones that can run faster.

Technologies interfacing the mind directly with machines already exist. Several paralysis victims who have had robotic arms attached to their brains are able to control the arms and perform simple tasks using brainpower alone. In 20 or 30 years, we may be controlling many things with brainpower. Bank transactions, video games, social networking and more would all be done through our minds in a virtual reality. Instead of imagining the future 30 years from now, imagine the future 100 years from now. It might sound silly in 2013, but the time is fast approaching when humanity will be very, very powerful. Science, engineering and medicine are paving the way for a prosperous future. What will we be like when we have so much power? I think nearly everything will have to change. First, though, I think were going to need to adjust our thinking common causes to work on together. Should we expand into the universe? Should we create beautiful art together? What should we do? Take some time over the next few years to come up with some answers to that question.

FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Two years ago, no one expected the string of revolutions in the Middle East to spread to Syria. President Bashar al-Assad was well-liked among the Arabs as one of the few leaders to espouse and promote the cause of Arab nationalism even though we now realize it was empty rhetoric. He stood up against the West, ensured Syria remained a stable, safe country (due to his tight grip), and Syrias economy wasnt too bad no one really had complaints of him. Having gone to Syria, I knew no one could complain. The dreaded, omnipresent Mukhabarat (an intelligence agency known for its secret police) has been feared by Syrians for decades a fear that I felt even here in America. I have been told by my family on numerous occasions to not talk politics or say anything about the president while in Syria, for my safety and the safety of my family. ever since the Baath Party took over in 1963. Fear pervades most Syrians. When protests broke out in Syria that day, as they naturally would in any oppressive country where teenagers would get arrested and tortured for writto see what would happen. People were unsure, afraid, hesitant. In fact, my parents told me adamantly not to post anything about Syria on Facebook, out of fear. I felt uncomfortable with the idea that the Mukhabarat were able to reach me even here in America. Would they detain me in the airport when I returned to visit Syria? I reasoned, however, that I wouldnt return until after Assad fell, which I believed would be inevitable. Two years later, Assad continues to cling to power while he slowly burns Syria to the ground, with no end in sight. Innocent blood blood that would spread the protest movement from city regime. Constant violence and bloody crackdowns on the part of the government turned a call for reform into a call for regime change and forced a peaceful revolution to turn into a self-defensive armed rebellion. I am in awe of the Syrian people who have mustered extreme courage to break down the barriers of fear that have kept their mouths shut and their minds bound. I am in awe of the Syrian people who have displayed utmost strength and faith in dealing with the suffering this conbeen ravaged, and I know its society has been torn apart by the sectarian-driven government. I know the constant rapes and killings, and mass detainments and bombings wont be easily forgotten or forgiven. Yet I see examples of how people help each other, and I see examples of the sheer admirable determination these people exhibit for the success of their revolution, and I have hope. I have hope and gone through a lot, as a better country with a brighter future. Progress, education, democracy, dignity and freedom will no longer be shackled under a cruel, oppressive dictatorship. Things have changed in the past two years. Its amazing how desensitized Ive become to the daily death toll, now accepting 115 people killed in one day as normal. And we forget the people and focus on the politics sometimes we lose sight of the original spirit of the revolution, of the roots of this uprising. As a SyrianAmerican, I look back at the past two years, and I realize how much this revolution has affected my life and consumed my time and attention. I have felt nostalgia for the old Syria, the Syria I once knew, the Syria I miss and yearn to visit, knowing it wont be the same. I have seen a country I never thought would be destroyed bleed. Having used all kinds of weapons possible, Assad has killed more than 70,000 people in Syria. He has displaced more than four million people, creating the largest modern internally displaced person crisis in the world. More as refugees in neighboring countries, and about 40,000 are have been imprisoned, their houses burned, their spouses killed, displaced, and the list of troubles facing every Syrian goes on. What can you do, though? That is a question that has been in my head for as long as I can remember. What is the solution? How, when, will it end? I am saddened there seems to be no end in sight. The international community has so far failed at solving the crisis in Syria. Unfortunately, I see my country bleed and burn as larger political powers maneuver their chess pieces, disregarding the humanitarian disaster in Syria. The way geopolitics works, the way our double-standard international community functions, the way our political interests trump our humanitarian ethics absolutely disgusts me. Like most Syrians, I have lost trust in the international community that has allowed this atrocious bloodshed to continue happening in Syria. I invite all of you to actually do something to turn activism into action. Join the Student-Led Movement to End Mass Atrocities today, and call 202-647-4000 to be connected to the State Department comment line, and leave a message for Secretary Kerry urging him to increase humanitarian assistance to the more than one million Syrian refugees and to www.syriasly.org/syriasly-call-secretary-kerry/. I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Elie Wiesel Sameer Saboungi is an international studies freshman at UF.Thoughts of a Syrian-American: The revolutions second anniversaryGuest columnSameer SaboungiSpeaking Out Its game over for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. They had a chance to be groundbreaking. They had a chance to write a new cultural narrative. Instead, they showed fear. What they did is quite ironic, given the name of the movie they chose as they played it safe. Wreck-It Ralph should have won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year. Brave was OK, but Wreck-It Ralph held the hopes of a community. Wreck-It Ralph validated the place video games have in our society. An Oscar would have reiterated that. Wreck-It Ralph was this generations Toy Story. In hindsight, because it mirrored Toy Story, it should have been obvious that all Wreck-It Ralph would get was a nomination. Think about it: Toy Story got robbed because enough well-made animated movies could have rearranged the entire industry. The Academy had to snub it, lest directors and actors jump ship. The subject matter of Wreck-It Ralph jeopardizes the industry instead of just threatening to rearrange it. Get past common multiplayer games, and its easy to see why: The best story-driven video games can easily replace movies. The stories that carry them are just as incredible, if not even more so, as anything a movie can deliver while engrossing the player for a longer amount of time than a movie can. Im biased, though. I like video games. Lets take IMDBs views. Head-to-head, Brave manages only one win, which comes from the number of reviews. Wreck-It Ralph rated 7.9 out of 10 from more than 75,000. It has a Metascore of 72 out of 100. Brave rated more than half a point less 7.2 from more than 100,000 users with a Metascore of 69/100. Well, what about Rotten Tomatoes? Wreck-It Ralph cleans house there, too. Eighty-six percent of approved critics gave it a positive review with an average of 7.4 out of 10, and 78 percent with an average of 6.9 out of 10 and averaged 3.9 out of 5 stars. Why the blatant snub? The Academy is scared. No movie with a video game basis has ever won an Academy Award. Ever. Maybe the Academy should ask newspapers how disregarding technology-based cultural shifts worked out for them. Logan Ladnyk is a journalism junior at UF.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterAfter an action-packed three years that included bringing hundreds of jobs to Gainesville and diffusing Quran-burning threats, Mayor Craig Lowe says hes ready to take reins of the city once again. Lowe, 55, is running for re-election for mayor in Tuesdays Gainesville city elections on a platform of bringing more jobs to the city and boosting local businesses. Lowe said he points to the city-facilitated expansion of Innovation Square and Prioria Robotics as his crowning accomplishments during his past term as mayor. Weve seen an unparalleled period of high-quality economic development in our city, he said. He also mentioned his involvement in helping Silver Airways relocate its maintenance unit to Gainesville Regional Airport. Weve now seen a doubling of the number of airlines serving Gainesville and a tripling of the number of nonstop destinations Lowe said economic development tied to job creation is possible only if the city appeals to potential employers an environment Lowe said he has helped foster. Weve created an environment in Gainesville that very much centers around quality of life which in turn is very attractive for businesses to locate here and to expand here, he said. if re-elected. Because of his participation in the World Conference of Mayors and his crisis management during the Rev. Terry Jones threats to burn copies of the Quran at his church in 2010, Lowe said he can chart a steady course of diplomacy. When the world spotlight was on Gainesville, I was able to represent Gainesville in a favorable light, asserting what the true character of our community is, he said. Im the one candidate for mayor that has actually represented our city on the world stage. In 2003, Lowe was elected to the City Commission, where he served for seven years until his successful bid for mayor in 2010. Nick Mildebrath, Lowes campaign manager, said Lowe is good at forming and explaining his plans to politicians and the public. Theres a lot of nitty gritty details involved in that, said MilEditors note: This is the third candidates running in the BILLY KENNEDYAlligator Contributing WriterPete Johnson wants to take Gainesville from good to great. My dream is if you raise a family here and your kids want plenty of opportunity to stay here, he said. They dont necessarily have to move because of lack of economic opportunity. Johnson, 59, is running for mayor in Tuesdays city elections on a platform of making the city more business friendly, increasing access to information, and promoting an open and respectful government. If elected, Johnson said he wants to boost business growth by making regulations more understandable. I respect the rules and regulations we have, but we ought to make it as easy for anyone to learn what they are and how to abide by our rules and regulations, he said. He said he believes in participatory leadership and encourages public comment, adding good ideas from the public deserve more attention. I think we would set the stage for moving this city from being a good college town to a great city, he said. Johnson moved from New York to Gainesville in 1978 to attend UF. He graduated with a bachelors degree in business administration in 1979 and then spent the next 30 years in business leadership roles. He also served on the Gainesville-Alachua County Regional Airport Authority board from 2004 to 2009. Johnson went into politics following his time with the City Plan Board because it really crystallized in my mind that the city could use a different style of leadership. My background in business and running different companies, and starting a leadership institute at UF made me feel like I could bring something different that could help change the culture, he said. son in 2007. She said Johnson is well-rounded and stays true to his roots Hes very honest. Hes very straightforward, she said. I think thats unusual for politicians. He understands the plight of everyone. 8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffCity Plan Board member Pete Johnson is running for may or. He worked in the private sector for about 30 years. Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffMayor Craig Lowe, 55, is seeking re-election on a platform focused on job growth. He points to several ventures like the expansion of Innovation Square as an example of his efforts. Meet the candidates running for mayorGainesville mayoral candidate: Pete Johnson Gainesville mayoral candidate: Craig Lowe ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterZack Yanger wants change pocket change, that is. On his quest to become a millionaire, Yanger, a 24-year-old 2010 UF advertising graduate, is asking 4 million people for a quarter. Yanger said he got the idea a couple of weeks ago when he was talking to his friends about ways to make money. Jokingly, he thought he could become a millionaire off of people giving him change. Two days later, he launched the website www.makezackamillionaire.com. I want to basically show the true power of digital sharing in todays society, he said. Four million people is a lot of people, but when you think about it, there are YouTube videos with hundreds of millions of views. But theres a catch. If he reaches $1 million by his deadline of Sept. 1, all the money goes to charity. If he doesnt reach the $1 million mark, he gets to keep what he earned. Anyone who donates a quarter has the opportunity to say where he or she wants the money to go, Yanger said. Donors also have the option to vote for other peoples requests. The request with the most votes gets the $1 million. Yanger said some of the requests have been to donate the money to a sorority, pay someones rent, give it to the Ronald McDonald House, build a Publix in New York City or give it to a random homeless person. Greg Slepak, a 25-year-old UF computer science senior, said people have become millionaires off of the Internet before, so he thinks the goal is possible. Its admirable that Yanger would give it to charity, Slepak said. Yanger said by getting more people on board with his social experiment, hes positive he will make it to the $1 million mark for charity. I guarantee there is a quarter in arms reach of you that you dont need, he said. You can part with a quarter for a cause. Quarters can be donated on the website through Paypal. On Wednesday, Yanger said he had $5. Having accepted donations since March 1, Yanger expects to get about 500 donations by the end of this week. He wont accept $1, $100 or even $1,000. All I want is a quarter from 4 million people, he said. Paul Numbers, a 20-year-old UF civil engineering sophomore, said he thinks the goal is possible, and he would consider donating. Its only a quarter, he said. I dont see why not. UF grad hopes to quarter his way to $1 million Zack YangerUF advertising graduate
