CHRIS ALCANTARA, KELCEE GRIFFIS, BILLY KENNEDY and KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WritersIncumbent Randy Wells won re-election in the City Commission District 4 race Tuesday night, but incumbent Mayor Craig Lowe and contender Ed Braddy will compete next month in a runoff election for Gainesville mayor. This years city elections saw 12,215 voters or 14.92 percent of the citys registered voters, cast ballots, according to the SuperIn the mayoral election, Braddy garnered 4,636 votes 38.43 percent while Lowe collected 4,406 votes, or 36.52 percent. Because neither candidate received a majority of the vote, a runoff election between the two will be April 16. Braddy said he was proud of his campaign leading up to Tuesdays election. If we keep things together, he said, well be in a good spot for April 16. Lowe said he is looking forward to the runoff race as well. It was inevitable, he said, and the weeks leading up to Tuesing key issues. This is what I expected with this many candidates in the race, he said. The people of Gainesville have two distinct viewpoints as to how Gainesville should move forward. Scherwin L. Henry received 2,058 votes, or 17.06 percent; Pete Johnson gathered 783 votes, or 6.49 percent; Donald Shepherd Sr. collected 53 votes; and Mark Venzke received 128 votes. Mayoral candidate Mark with the number of votes he received. Venzke said some voters who believed in him as a candidate voted for Braddy instead, adding that he believed Braddy was considered a more viable contender against Lowe. Im guessing that was what was on the minds of a lot of voters, Venzke said. Voters also struck down a proposed city charter amendment that would place municipal elections every other year during odd-numbered years and extend commissioner and mayoral terms to four years instead of three. Out of the 11,424 votes cast on the charter, 56.36 percent voted No. Meanwhile, in the District 4 City Commission race, Wells received a majority of the votes with 1,115 votes, or 53.63 percent. Alfredo Espinosa gathered 545 votes. W.E. Mac McEachern collected 419. Wells said he plans to take a little bit of a break until he starts his term again as commissioner. I look forward to continuing to serve this community, he said. Espinosa said he was grateful for the turnout and support from his UF classmates. Im so happy, because for got together and backed a student candidate like never before, he said. 71 /44 FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 CLASSIFIEDS 10 CROSSWORD 11 SPORTS 13 Kelly Logan/ Alligator StaffCommissioner-elect Randy Wells, 45, celebrates his victory at the Supervisor of Elections Wells wins; Lowe, Braddy will run off JACQUELINE BONDAlligator Contributing WriterWearing sunglasses may save people about $100 the next time they are on a scooter.

Every year, there seems like there is more and more scooters on campus, which might be why more people have been stopped, Streukens said. He said he believes riders dont understand that once the scooter goes faster than 30 mph, or has an engine of more than 50 cubic centimeters, it is considered a motorcycle and must abide by the same rules, which include a motorcycle endorsement and eye protection. The problem is ... that they are making these scooters that are 50 cc or less, but they can go greater than 30 mph, Streukens said. Not only that, but if you buy the same scooter as the guy next to you, and hes not wearing sunglasses, then you assume you dont have to.

Last week, Florida Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) said in a news conference he wouldnt hinder Senate committees from discussing controversial legislation such as gun control. However, he said he would not vote for any of the bills seeking to restrict or regulate gun ownership. He said his idea of gun control is a steady aim. However, Arkansas pulled the trigger on the debate of concealed carry on college campuses at the end of February. The state legislature passed a bill to allow colleges and universities to decide whether to allow concealed weapons on their campuses. Arkansas will join 23 other states that allow individual colleges or universities to decide whether to ban concealed carry of weapons on campus, according to the National Conference of state Legislatures. UF history senior Erin Gallagher does not think Arkansas initiative is enough. The initiative would allow colleges to opt in for concealed carry for faculty and staff. Gallagher said she believes the same right should be extended to students. It is a matter of security in an otherwise virtually unprotected area, but more importantly, of guarding our constitutional right to take care of ourselves, the 22-year-old said.

ELLY AYRESAlligator Contributing WriterIf you enjoyed alcoholic beverages last weekend, you may have been indulging in the same behavior as primates giving a whole new meaning to monkeying around. According to a recent study performed by chemist Steven Benner of the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution in Gainesville, in extinct primates about 10 million years ago. Theres a time when you are learning to walk on the ground, and at that same time, your enzymes were learning how to break down alcohol, he said. Benner and his colleagues resurrected proteins from rebuilding the digestive tracts of ancient primates going back about 80 million years. They discovered the ancestors that led to gorillas, chimps and humans could fully digest alcohol at the levels found in fermenting fruits. Its not quite like Jurassic Park because we dont resurrect the whole primate, just pieces of them, he said. The theory contests the common view that alcohol wasnt part of humans Paleolithic diet because the necessary fermentation couldnt occur without the technologies of modern civilization such as glass and pottery. Benner said he believed when primates descended from trees they were exposed to fallen, fermenting fruits infected with yeast. cause he once thought humans didnt drink alcohol before civilization. Katie Ballew, a 20-year-old UF marketing sophomore, said she hopes Benner continues to build on the study. The entire theory sounds really interesting, she said. If theyre just learning now that our ancestors had been exposed to alcoBenner said he plans to continue his study by examining the effects of alcoholism among various populations.

ERIKA OAKVIKAlligator Contributing WriterStorm surges, the massive the sea rises during a storm, are expected to increase as much as 10 times in frequency in the coming decades, according to a study led by a climate scientist. Published Monday, the study indicates that if the climate increases by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, then, combined with expected rising sea levels, destructive storm surges will inevitably increase in the future. Hurricane Katrinas storm surge, which made history as the highest storm surge recorded on the U.S. coast, was 27.8 feet when it struck Pass Christian, Miss., in 2005. The hurricane was also responsible for more than 1,800 deaths. Many of those resulted from storm surges, according to the National Hurricane Center. By far, more people die from storm surge than any other part of a hurricane, said Max MayNational Hurricane Center. for seven years, said sea levels rise about an inch a decade, and storm surges will increase because of that. Whatever hurricanes we have will eventually do more damage because of higher storm surges, he said. The study used data, as far back as 1920s, from six tidal gauges from the East and Gulf coasts. is a very controversial subject. He thinks the number of storms and hurricanes has increased primarily because of improved technology.

ABOUT 40 TREES WERE PLANTED TUESDAY. MARY VELASQUEZAlligator Contributing WriterUF was recognized Tuesday for its treefriendliness. About 30 people planted 40 native trees donated by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota at the University Park Arboretum near the Presidents House, 2151 W. University Ave., according to a news release. The arboretum is meant to be a collection est Resources & Conservation; however, the grounds have a sparse amount of trees. Hopefully, with the new trees, it can be used for that, he said. The tree planting served as the annual service-learning project, required of campuses leges. The event showed the work of the last two semesters had meaning, Taylor Cremo said. The 22-year-old UF sustainability and the built environment senior has spent two semesto receive the recognition. Being recognized as versity effectively cares for its trees, connects with off-campus communities to promote urban forests and engages students in servicelearning activities, according to the Arbor Day Foundation. However, Cremo said, UF has always been a tree-friendly campus. It was just about taking all the information that already existed and putting it into one application, she said. For example, a campus tree care plan, which UF has, is one of the required standards to qualify for the distinction. In addition, a university must have a campus tree advisory committee, a campus tree program with dedicated annual expenditures and an Arbor Day observance. after that, it was just time and patience of putting it together.

The article described how, as a boy, he was mesmerized by locomotives, police cars, and taxis, taught himself programming to learn how to make little dots representing trains and buses scoot around the maps, and spent hours listening to police and ambulance radio frequencies, then plotted the emergency vehicles as they moved toward an accident or a hospital. Why? I wanted to play with how the city worked, so I could see it, Dorsey said in the interview. In 2006, he worked for a struggling startup called Odeo. He pitched an idea to create a service that would allow anyone to write a line or two about himself, using a cellphones keypad, and then send that message to anyone who wanted to receive it because it would add a missing human element to the digital picture of a pulsing, populated city. Twitter was born. In 2008, he was slightly ousted for a time from the company. He talked with his friend Jim McKelvey, who told him about one of his customers who couldnt make a purchase because he didnt have a way to accept an American Express card for payment. I was struck with the irony, said McKelvey according to the Vanity Fair article. Im talking to my business partner on this device that has all the technology I need to solve the problem I just had. He proposed they build a way for people to make and accept credit card payments on smartphones. Im like, Wow this is pretty interesting, Dorsey said. This is actually another dot that is more activity on the map. Square was born. Have you seen those small devices attached to iPads or iPhones that allow businesses to accept credit or debit card payments? Thats Square. Hes a billionaire because of these two innovations. Why is he making headlines now, when Square launched in 2010? Because hes interested in one day becoming New York Citys mayor. The Vanity Fair article reported that although he currently lives in San Francisco, his ultimate aspiration is to become mayor of New York. Hes even spoken to Michael Bloomberg about it. (According to Dorsey, the current mayors advice was to make lion.) We think its a kind of crazy leap to go from Internet superstar to mayor of basically any city, let alone New York City. However, we think that could be a really smart choice for New York. Hear us out: If Dorsey decides to run, he would progress New York to be more connected and more in touch with itself. We hope he does decide to run and that all of you decide to read that Vanity Fair article because its damn interesting. We could all use a dose of inspiration.From soda bans to tobacco standsS Bloomberg has been on a crusade to make his city a healthy and safe place to live, and hes banning just about anything and everything he can to make it that way. Bloomberg has banned or has tried to ban food donations to the homeless, loud earphones and Styrofoam. The most controversial of Bloombergs attempts to protect us from ourselves was a ban on sugary drinks more than 16 ounces. Fortunately, this policy was recently struck down by the New York State Supreme Court. But this hasnt stopped Bloombergs messianic mission to save us all from our own vices or at least all of the citizens in New York City. Next, Bloomberg wants stores that sell cigarettes and other tobacco products to hide all displays of these products, which can usually be found behind the counter. These displays, according to the nosey neighbor mayor, invite young people to experiment with tobacco. While there are major First Amendment implications for restricting the ability of a company to relay truthful, non-misleading information to its consumers about its products and price, this latest step by Bloomberg shows his fundamental distrust of the ability (and rights) of people to decide how to conduct their own lives, raise their own children, eat what they want to eat, drink what they want to drink and live how they want to live. Arguments about the growth of the nanny state have nothing to do with whats best for us or our health. They have everything to do with taking away our choices and our freedom while making us idly dependent upon the government to keep us from putting bad things in our bodies and protecting us from actions that might harm us. There is no doubt that seat-belts save lives. There is no doubt that cigarettes are bad for you. There is no doubt that limiting the consumption of sodas and other fatty foods contributes to health and wellbeing. But just because you believe that a lifestyle without these unhealthy habits and reckless practices is the best way to live, it still doesnt give you or Mayor Bloomberg or anyone the right to limit the choices that other people have and the decisions theyre allowed to make about their own lives. Some have argued that we have to limit unhealthy lifestyles because we all bear the cost of health insurance. But thats not an argument for creating a bureaucratic nanny state that limits the choices we can make; its an argument for reforming our broken health care system. Lack of consumer choice in medical care is one of the main reasons our health care system is so messed up. Additionally, a health care system that makes everyone interdependent through taxpayer subsidies, over regulation and government intervention is hardly a strong justiThe nanny state only grows because we allow politicians like Bloomberg to ban, regulate and restrict the freedoms and choices we have. At some point, we need to stand up and demand that we be treated like adults who can make adult choices, even if some of us choose unhealthy lifestyles. In the end, the only way to ensure that individuals make good decisions is if they are allowed to make dumb decisions and take personal responsibility for their mistakes.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 This piece is written in response to Sarah Platts guest column regarding advertising in society. An answer to the question she posed: I strongly believe society shapes the media. Advertisements are made to relate to the audiences with whom they are communicating. If they follow the correct procedure, advertising research of target audiencare then analyzed and applied to develop the strategy of advertising campaigns. It is correct that stereotypes often have negative coneralizations that are arguably evident in society as stereotypes. different from a womans. Its science. Our bodies are made differently, so how they function differs as well. Also, if I were on a quest to lose weight, Id certainly be interested in a solution that offered me the chance to eat the foods Id engrave that in my head: Its a personal sentiment that I Although you may feel there are too many gender Advertisements have the power to change perceptions, but I believe, for the most part, they are a mirror image of what happens in our world. Perhaps members of society everyday lives so advertisers wouldnt have to reinforce them as that seems to be the most effective way they relate to and communicate with consumers. guest column What women want: good vs. bad guys. I have had this conversation several times with female friends and have come to a common conclusion: There is nothing wrong with a good guy, just not everybody body who will be a bit of a challenge is often more intriguTo quote Lady Gagas song, Yo and I: Theres something, something about the chase. People often want something they cant or shouldnt have. For what reason? I really couldnt tell you, except that it provides a sense of adventure to some. A friend told me her ideal guy isnt necessarily bad, but he has a little bit of an edge. Everybody has somewho are too nice get a bad reputation for being overly dedicated to the person who interests them. The words sprung and whipped describe a person who seems me, its a huge turnoff for some girls. In a similar manner, I suppose some guys may feel goody-two-shoes girls are no fun and are too clean-cut or well-behaved to date. Hopefully as we grow and mature, young adults will and traits in others should be embraced and appreciated rather than frowned upon. masculine man is someone who would go out of his way to do anything for anybody he is passionate about. Im not saying the ideal man is a submissive personal servant, but I do believe he should enjoy showing appreciation for whomever he cares for.

Gradually heat up the water and watch as the frog stupor. death. I use this metaphor to illustrate mans inability to react to the steady decline of a moral authority in our society an authority that has gradually been replaced by everything and everyone except gasp! God. I remember what happened last year at the Democratic National Convention. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa brought an effort to amend their party platform by adding a mention of God and declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel. three times. Despite the majority who cried nay, the motion was adopted and the platform amended. a reference to God, as if using it usurps individuals right to freely and willingly choose what and who they should believe in. Throughout the years, their moral ineptitude brought ences and godliness in society. In the name of the First Amendment, public schools can no longer call for prayer. Classrooms wont discuss Scripture. And the under God mantra in the Pledge of AlleIn our countrys history, it wasnt unusual to pray. It wasnt ghastly to espouse biblical messages. Our Founding Fathers understood they couldnt mold man. Instead, they relied on moral men to mold government. Religion, to them, was essential. Mention God today, and secularists will shout, Separation of church and state! Separation of church and state! Thomas Jeffersons wall of separation protected an individuals faith against governmental interference. It prevented the state from becoming church. In other words, it guarded local churches from the government. Public displays and proclamations of faith, however, are not unconstitutional. George Washington believed, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. Some people even attribute him as saying, it [was] impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. what would they be if without it? In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia was forced to strap down her breasts because her white dress didnt permit any lingerie to be worn underneath. Fast-forward to Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and Princess Leia is depicted on the poster in an Our cultures perception of right and wrong is conTruth is relative. Admonishment is tantamount to judgment. British writer and journalist G. K. Chesterton said, When people cease to believe in God, they dont believe in nothing; they believe in anything. People will worship anything: globalism, diversity, environmentalism, statism you name it! God has effectively been replaced by worthless -isms. Conforming is cool. dizement. We idolize hedonism. Yet its news to us when high schools have daycares and health classes teach students how to unravel condoms on cucumbers (or, in my case, carrots). Recently, the Future of Sex Education (as well as many other associations) has been developing the stansive sexuality. Daniel and the Lions Den will be replaced by demonstrations of Barbie straddling Ken. Just dont mention God, though. Thats intolerant. Erik Skipper is an economics sophomore at UF.

Davidson, Belmont, Minnesota and St. Marys will be the teams that defy their seeding and open the Big Dance with upsets. I say this not just because those teams are good an obvious prerequisite but because they most closely resemble the teams that have slain Goliaths before. In the past 10 seasons, 43 teams seeded 11 A close examination of the winners Kenesting trends. Every upset is different, but offense was usually the biggest key to underdog success. Taken as a group, the 43 games can be treated as a season, with all of the upset winners viewed collectively as Team Underdog. we see that these teams have been much more reliant on offense than defense. The key to this offensive success has been multifaceted, but the biggest difference is that Team Underdog hits a berserk percentage of threes. The average three-point shooting percentage of the winners was an absurd 43.4 percent. If an NCAA team shot 43.4 percent from category by a full percentage point. Team Underdogs offensive success has also been related to not turning the ball over. On average, those upset winners gave it away Team Underdog was also good at shooting twos (49.4 percent), getting to the free-throw and keeping the favorite off the charity stripe (allowing 31.3 FTA/FGA). To try to determine how predictable those results might be, I looked at the advanced stats com. Unsurprisingly, the teams were usually ciency of 94.8. Many of their strengths in the upsets mimic what they did successfully during the season. On average, they shot well from three (35.7 percent), shot well from two (49.9 percent) and got to the free-throw line (37.9 FTA/FGA). They were also good at offensive reboundpossessions), although these strengths did not consistently show in their upsets. So, taken as a whole, Im looking for upset candidates who, in order: 3. Avoid turnovers 4. Play adequate defense 5. Get to the free-throw line 7. Keep opponents off the free-throw line 8. Offensive rebound 9. Force turnovers 10. Dont have any glaring weaknesses But there are two parts to every upset. What teams are the most vulnerable? In my Because they were seeded high enough to be upset candidates, there isnt really a lot of negative things to say about them as a group. were all average in terms of turnovers (givecent of possessions), forcing turnovers percent of possessions) and defensive rebounding (allowed 31.8 percent offensive rebounding). Based on the same game data I mentioned before only this time viewing the 43 games as a season for Team Favorite Im looking force turnovers, dont get to the free-throw line and put the other team on the free-throw line too often. The game data also showed that Team Favorite would often become threepointer happy and go on missing sprees. So, taken as a whole, Im looking for upset candidates who: 1. Focus more on offense than defense 3. Dont force turnovers 4. Dont win the free-throw battle 5. Sometimes go insane from outside Before I get to the picks, one important note is that these factors can only do so much team that shoots well, wins the battle of the free-throw line and grabs offensive rebounds. be moronic. The deepest, darkest sleeper picks I would Georgetown. Iona shoots a lot of threes fairly accurately without turning the ball over, and FGCU could force some turnovers. But neither is truly good enough to be expected to win. I considered (13) South Dakota State over (4) Michigan, as this game should become a jump-shooting contest that could go either way. turn the ball over, but its style matches up terribly with (5) Wisconsin. turnover problem, but it could put up enough threes to be dangerous. As for the picks I actually am making: -(14) Davidson beats (3) Marquette: Davidson wont turn the ball over and should get good looks at threes. The Wildcats should hold their own on the boards, and they have the big men to contain Davante Gardner. I worry they wont stop Vander Blue on the perimeter, but I cant go against the stats. force turnovers or get to the line. The Golden Gophers, the nations leader in offensive rebounding percentage, will own the boards, out better on both sides of the ball, especially after the injury to the Bruins Jordan Adams. forces turnovers and can exploit a careless make a lot of threes, as the Wildcats wont teams, Belmont will have the edge if this becomes a shooting contest. system likes Memphis, save for their turnover team regardless.

CHRIS ALCANTARA, KELCEE GRIFFIS, BILLY KENNEDY and KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WritersIncumbent Randy Wells won re-election in the City Commission District 4 race Tuesday night, but incumbent Mayor Craig Lowe and contender Ed Braddy will compete next month in a runoff election for Gainesville mayor. This years city elections saw 12,215 voters or 14.92 percent of the citys registered voters, cast ballots, according to the SuperIn the mayoral election, Braddy garnered 4,636 votes 38.43 percent while Lowe collected 4,406 votes, or 36.52 percent. Because neither candidate received a majority of the vote, a runoff election between the two will be April 16. Braddy said he was proud of his campaign leading up to Tuesdays election. If we keep things together, he said, well be in a good spot for April 16. Lowe said he is looking forward to the runoff race as well. It was inevitable, he said, and the weeks leading up to Tuesing key issues. This is what I expected with this many candidates in the race, he said. The people of Gainesville have two distinct viewpoints as to how Gainesville should move forward. Scherwin L.

Mayoral candidate Mark with the number of votes he received. Venzke said some voters who believed in him as a candidate voted for Braddy instead, adding that he believed Braddy was considered a more viable contender against Lowe. Im guessing that was what was on the minds of a lot of voters, Venzke said. Voters also struck down a proposed city charter amendment that would place municipal elections every other year during odd-numbered years and extend commissioner and mayoral terms to four years instead of three. Out of the 11,424 votes cast on the charter, 56.36 percent voted No. Meanwhile, in the District 4 City Commission race, Wells received a majority of the votes with 1,115 votes, or 53.63 percent. Alfredo Espinosa gathered 545 votes. W.E. Mac McEachern collected 419. Wells said he plans to take a little bit of a break until he starts his term again as commissioner.

Every year, there seems like there is more and more scooters on campus, which might be why more people have been stopped, Streukens said. He said he believes riders dont understand that once the scooter goes faster than 30 mph, or has an engine of more than 50 cubic centimeters, it is considered a motorcycle and must abide by the same rules, which include a motorcycle endorsement and eye protection. The problem is ... that they are making these scooters that are 50 cc or less, but they can go greater than 30 mph, Streukens said.

Last week, Florida Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) said in a news conference he wouldnt hinder Senate committees from discussing controversial legislation such as gun control. However, he said he would not vote for any of the bills seeking to restrict or regulate gun ownership. He said his idea of gun control is a steady aim. However, Arkansas pulled the trigger on the debate of concealed carry on college campuses at the end of February. The state legislature passed a bill to allow colleges and universities to decide whether to allow concealed weapons on their campuses. Arkansas will join 23 other states that allow individual colleges or universities to decide whether to ban concealed carry of weapons on campus, according to the National Conference of state Legislatures. UF history senior Erin Gallagher does not think Arkansas initiative is enough. The initiative would allow colleges to opt in for concealed carry for faculty and staff. Gallagher said she believes the same right should be extended to students. It is a matter of security in an otherwise virtually unprotected area, but more importantly, of guarding our constitutional right to take care of ourselves, the 22-year-old said.

ELLY AYRESAlligator Contributing WriterIf you enjoyed alcoholic beverages last weekend, you may have been indulging in the same behavior as primates giving a whole new meaning to monkeying around. According to a recent study performed by chemist Steven Benner of the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution in Gainesville, in extinct primates about 10 million years ago. Theres a time when you are learning to walk on the ground, and at that same time, your enzymes were learning how to break down alcohol, he said. Benner and his colleagues resurrected proteins from rebuilding the digestive tracts of ancient primates going back about 80 million years. They discovered the ancestors that led to gorillas, chimps and humans could fully digest alcohol at the levels found in fermenting fruits. Its not quite like Jurassic Park because we dont resurrect the whole primate, just pieces of them, he said. The theory contests the common view that alcohol wasnt part of humans Paleolithic diet because the necessary fermentation couldnt occur without the technologies of modern civilization such as glass and pottery. Benner said he believed when primates descended from trees they were exposed to fallen, fermenting fruits infected with yeast. cause he once thought humans didnt drink alcohol before civilization. Katie Ballew, a 20-year-old UF marketing sophomore, said she hopes Benner continues to build on the study. The entire theory sounds really interesting, she said.

ERIKA OAKVIKAlligator Contributing WriterStorm surges, the massive the sea rises during a storm, are expected to increase as much as 10 times in frequency in the coming decades, according to a study led by a climate scientist. Published Monday, the study indicates that if the climate increases by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, then, combined with expected rising sea levels, destructive storm surges will inevitably increase in the future. Hurricane Katrinas storm surge, which made history as the highest storm surge recorded on the U.S. coast, was 27.8 feet when it struck Pass Christian, Miss., in 2005. The hurricane was also responsible for more than 1,800 deaths. Many of those resulted from storm surges, according to the National Hurricane Center. By far, more people die from storm surge than any other part of a hurricane, said Max MayNational Hurricane Center. for seven years, said sea levels rise about an inch a decade, and storm surges will increase because of that.

ABOUT 40 TREES WERE PLANTED TUESDAY. MARY VELASQUEZAlligator Contributing WriterUF was recognized Tuesday for its treefriendliness. About 30 people planted 40 native trees donated by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota at the University Park Arboretum near the Presidents House, 2151 W. University Ave., according to a news release. The arboretum is meant to be a collection est Resources & Conservation; however, the grounds have a sparse amount of trees. Hopefully, with the new trees, it can be used for that, he said. The tree planting served as the annual service-learning project, required of campuses leges. The event showed the work of the last two semesters had meaning, Taylor Cremo said. The 22-year-old UF sustainability and the built environment senior has spent two semesto receive the recognition. Being recognized as versity effectively cares for its trees, connects with off-campus communities to promote urban forests and engages students in servicelearning activities, according to the Arbor Day Foundation. However, Cremo said, UF has always been a tree-friendly campus. It was just about taking all the information that already existed and putting it into one application, she said. For example, a campus tree care plan, which UF has, is one of the required standards to qualify for the distinction. In addition, a university must have a campus tree advisory committee, a campus tree program with dedicated annual expenditures and an Arbor Day observance. after that, it was just time and patience of putting it together.

The article described how, as a boy, he was mesmerized by locomotives, police cars, and taxis, taught himself programming to learn how to make little dots representing trains and buses scoot around the maps, and spent hours listening to police and ambulance radio frequencies, then plotted the emergency vehicles as they moved toward an accident or a hospital. Why? I wanted to play with how the city worked, so I could see it, Dorsey said in the interview. In 2006, he worked for a struggling startup called Odeo. He pitched an idea to create a service that would allow anyone to write a line or two about himself, using a cellphones keypad, and then send that message to anyone who wanted to receive it because it would add a missing human element to the digital picture of a pulsing, populated city. Twitter was born. In 2008, he was slightly ousted for a time from the company. He talked with his friend Jim McKelvey, who told him about one of his customers who couldnt make a purchase because he didnt have a way to accept an American Express card for payment. I was struck with the irony, said McKelvey according to the Vanity Fair article. Im talking to my business partner on this device that has all the technology I need to solve the problem I just had. He proposed they build a way for people to make and accept credit card payments on smartphones. Im like, Wow this is pretty interesting, Dorsey said. This is actually another dot that is more activity on the map. Square was born. Have you seen those small devices attached to iPads or iPhones that allow businesses to accept credit or debit card payments? Thats Square. Hes a billionaire because of these two innovations. Why is he making headlines now, when Square launched in 2010? Because hes interested in one day becoming New York Citys mayor. The Vanity Fair article reported that although he currently lives in San Francisco, his ultimate aspiration is to become mayor of New York. Hes even spoken to Michael Bloomberg about it. (According to Dorsey, the current mayors advice was to make lion.) We think its a kind of crazy leap to go from Internet superstar to mayor of basically any city, let alone New York City. However, we think that could be a really smart choice for New York. Hear us out: If Dorsey decides to run, he would progress New York to be more connected and more in touch with itself. We hope he does decide to run and that all of you decide to read that Vanity Fair article because its damn interesting. We could all use a dose of inspiration.From soda bans to tobacco standsS Bloomberg has been on a crusade to make his city a healthy and safe place to live, and hes banning just about anything and everything he can to make it that way. Bloomberg has banned or has tried to ban food donations to the homeless, loud earphones and Styrofoam. The most controversial of Bloombergs attempts to protect us from ourselves was a ban on sugary drinks more than 16 ounces. Fortunately, this policy was recently struck down by the New York State Supreme Court. But this hasnt stopped Bloombergs messianic mission to save us all from our own vices or at least all of the citizens in New York City. Next, Bloomberg wants stores that sell cigarettes and other tobacco products to hide all displays of these products, which can usually be found behind the counter. These displays, according to the nosey neighbor mayor, invite young people to experiment with tobacco. While there are major First Amendment implications for restricting the ability of a company to relay truthful, non-misleading information to its consumers about its products and price, this latest step by Bloomberg shows his fundamental distrust of the ability (and rights) of people to decide how to conduct their own lives, raise their own children, eat what they want to eat, drink what they want to drink and live how they want to live. Arguments about the growth of the nanny state have nothing to do with whats best for us or our health. They have everything to do with taking away our choices and our freedom while making us idly dependent upon the government to keep us from putting bad things in our bodies and protecting us from actions that might harm us. There is no doubt that seat-belts save lives. There is no doubt that cigarettes are bad for you. There is no doubt that limiting the consumption of sodas and other fatty foods contributes to health and wellbeing. But just because you believe that a lifestyle without these unhealthy habits and reckless practices is the best way to live, it still doesnt give you or Mayor Bloomberg or anyone the right to limit the choices that other people have and the decisions theyre allowed to make about their own lives. Some have argued that we have to limit unhealthy lifestyles because we all bear the cost of health insurance. But thats not an argument for creating a bureaucratic nanny state that limits the choices we can make; its an argument for reforming our broken health care system. Lack of consumer choice in medical care is one of the main reasons our health care system is so messed up. Additionally, a health care system that makes everyone interdependent through taxpayer subsidies, over regulation and government intervention is hardly a strong justiThe nanny state only grows because we allow politicians like Bloomberg to ban, regulate and restrict the freedoms and choices we have. At some point, we need to stand up and demand that we be treated like adults who can make adult choices, even if some of us choose unhealthy lifestyles. In the end, the only way to ensure that individuals make good decisions is if they are allowed to make dumb decisions and take personal responsibility for their mistakes.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 This piece is written in response to Sarah Platts guest column regarding advertising in society. An answer to the question she posed: I strongly believe society shapes the media. Advertisements are made to relate to the audiences with whom they are communicating. If they follow the correct procedure, advertising research of target audiencare then analyzed and applied to develop the strategy of advertising campaigns. It is correct that stereotypes often have negative coneralizations that are arguably evident in society as stereotypes. different from a womans. Its science. Our bodies are made differently, so how they function differs as well. Also, if I were on a quest to lose weight, Id certainly be interested in a solution that offered me the chance to eat the foods Id engrave that in my head: Its a personal sentiment that I Although you may feel there are too many gender Advertisements have the power to change perceptions, but I believe, for the most part, they are a mirror image of what happens in our world. Perhaps members of society everyday lives so advertisers wouldnt have to reinforce them as that seems to be the most effective way they relate to and communicate with consumers. guest column What women want: good vs. bad guys. I have had this conversation several times with female friends and have come to a common conclusion: There is nothing wrong with a good guy, just not everybody body who will be a bit of a challenge is often more intriguTo quote Lady Gagas song, Yo and I: Theres something, something about the chase. People often want something they cant or shouldnt have. For what reason? I really couldnt tell you, except that it provides a sense of adventure to some. A friend told me her ideal guy isnt necessarily bad, but he has a little bit of an edge. Everybody has somewho are too nice get a bad reputation for being overly dedicated to the person who interests them. The words sprung and whipped describe a person who seems me, its a huge turnoff for some girls. In a similar manner, I suppose some guys may feel goody-two-shoes girls are no fun and are too clean-cut or well-behaved to date. Hopefully as we grow and mature, young adults will and traits in others should be embraced and appreciated rather than frowned upon. masculine man is someone who would go out of his way to do anything for anybody he is passionate about. Im not saying the ideal man is a submissive personal servant, but I do believe he should enjoy showing appreciation for whomever he cares for. Not necessarily magenuinely care and want to show it is enough. Lastly, in regard to the statement about how different be able to recognize their self-worth on their own with outlet.

Gradually heat up the water and watch as the frog stupor. death. I use this metaphor to illustrate mans inability to react to the steady decline of a moral authority in our society an authority that has gradually been replaced by everything and everyone except gasp! God. I remember what happened last year at the Democratic National Convention. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa brought an effort to amend their party platform by adding a mention of God and declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel. three times. Despite the majority who cried nay, the motion was adopted and the platform amended. a reference to God, as if using it usurps individuals right to freely and willingly choose what and who they should believe in. Throughout the years, their moral ineptitude brought ences and godliness in society. In the name of the First Amendment, public schools can no longer call for prayer. Classrooms wont discuss Scripture. And the under God mantra in the Pledge of AlleIn our countrys history, it wasnt unusual to pray. It wasnt ghastly to espouse biblical messages. Our Founding Fathers understood they couldnt mold man. Instead, they relied on moral men to mold government. Religion, to them, was essential. Mention God today, and secularists will shout, Separation of church and state! Separation of church and state! Thomas Jeffersons wall of separation protected an individuals faith against governmental interference. It prevented the state from becoming church. In other words, it guarded local churches from the government. Public displays and proclamations of faith, however, are not unconstitutional. George Washington believed, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. Some people even attribute him as saying, it [was] impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. what would they be if without it? In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia was forced to strap down her breasts because her white dress didnt permit any lingerie to be worn underneath. Fast-forward to Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and Princess Leia is depicted on the poster in an Our cultures perception of right and wrong is conTruth is relative. Admonishment is tantamount to judgment. British writer and journalist G. K. Chesterton said, When people cease to believe in God, they dont believe in nothing; they believe in anything. People will worship anything: globalism, diversity, environmentalism, statism you name it! God has effectively been replaced by worthless -isms. Conforming is cool. dizement. We idolize hedonism. Yet its news to us when high schools have daycares and health classes teach students how to unravel condoms on cucumbers (or, in my case, carrots). Recently, the Future of Sex Education (as well as many other associations) has been developing the stansive sexuality. Daniel and the Lions Den will be replaced by demonstrations of Barbie straddling Ken. Just dont mention God, though. Thats intolerant. Erik Skipper is an economics sophomore at UF.

Davidson, Belmont, Minnesota and St. Marys will be the teams that defy their seeding and open the Big Dance with upsets. I say this not just because those teams are good an obvious prerequisite but because they most closely resemble the teams that have slain Goliaths before. In the past 10 seasons, 43 teams seeded 11 A close examination of the winners Kenesting trends. Every upset is different, but offense was usually the biggest key to underdog success. Taken as a group, the 43 games can be treated as a season, with all of the upset winners viewed collectively as Team Underdog. we see that these teams have been much more reliant on offense than defense. The key to this offensive success has been multifaceted, but the biggest difference is that Team Underdog hits a berserk percentage of threes. The average three-point shooting percentage of the winners was an absurd 43.4 percent. If an NCAA team shot 43.4 percent from category by a full percentage point. Team Underdogs offensive success has also been related to not turning the ball over. On average, those upset winners gave it away Team Underdog was also good at shooting twos (49.4 percent), getting to the free-throw and keeping the favorite off the charity stripe (allowing 31.3 FTA/FGA). To try to determine how predictable those results might be, I looked at the advanced stats com. Unsurprisingly, the teams were usually ciency of 94.8. Many of their strengths in the upsets mimic what they did successfully during the season. On average, they shot well from three (35.7 percent), shot well from two (49.9 percent) and got to the free-throw line (37.9 FTA/FGA). They were also good at offensive reboundpossessions), although these strengths did not consistently show in their upsets. So, taken as a whole, Im looking for upset candidates who, in order: 3. Avoid turnovers 4. Play adequate defense 5. Get to the free-throw line 7. Keep opponents off the free-throw line 8. Offensive rebound 9. Force turnovers 10. Dont have any glaring weaknesses But there are two parts to every upset. What teams are the most vulnerable? In my Because they were seeded high enough to be upset candidates, there isnt really a lot of negative things to say about them as a group. were all average in terms of turnovers (givecent of possessions), forcing turnovers percent of possessions) and defensive rebounding (allowed 31.8 percent offensive rebounding). Based on the same game data I mentioned before only this time viewing the 43 games as a season for Team Favorite Im looking force turnovers, dont get to the free-throw line and put the other team on the free-throw line too often. The game data also showed that Team Favorite would often become threepointer happy and go on missing sprees. So, taken as a whole, Im looking for upset candidates who: 1. Focus more on offense than defense 3. Dont force turnovers 4. Dont win the free-throw battle 5. Sometimes go insane from outside Before I get to the picks, one important note is that these factors can only do so much team that shoots well, wins the battle of the free-throw line and grabs offensive rebounds. be moronic. The deepest, darkest sleeper picks I would Georgetown. Iona shoots a lot of threes fairly accurately without turning the ball over, and FGCU could force some turnovers. But neither is truly good enough to be expected to win. I considered (13) South Dakota State over (4) Michigan, as this game should become a jump-shooting contest that could go either way. turn the ball over, but its style matches up terribly with (5) Wisconsin. turnover problem, but it could put up enough threes to be dangerous. As for the picks I actually am making: -(14) Davidson beats (3) Marquette: Davidson wont turn the ball over and should get good looks at threes. The Wildcats should hold their own on the boards, and they have the big men to contain Davante Gardner. I worry they wont stop Vander Blue on the perimeter, but I cant go against the stats. force turnovers or get to the line. The Golden Gophers, the nations leader in offensive rebounding percentage, will own the boards, out better on both sides of the ball, especially after the injury to the Bruins Jordan Adams. forces turnovers and can exploit a careless make a lot of threes, as the Wildcats wont teams, Belmont will have the edge if this becomes a shooting contest. system likes Memphis, save for their turnover team regardless. With a low-turnover, threehappy offense and average defense, the Gaels are primed to bust some brackets. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.
