On Tuesday, 363 voters, or about 6 percent of the 5,645 Alachua County registered voters who live on campus, cast ballots at the Reitz Union precinct, according to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections website. In 2010, student turnout was about 2 percent. In 2007, about 1 percent of students went to the polls. Of the 363 votes cast at the Reitz Union, 87 left the choice for mayor blank, according to the Supervisor of Elections website. Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter said the number who didnt vote for mayor could suggest some students focused on voting in the District 4 City Commission race, which pitted incumbent Randy Wells, W.E. Mac McEachern and 20-year-old UF building construction junior Alfredo Espinosa for the seat. The city as a whole received wider participation, with about 15 percent of registered voters going to the polls. Carpenter said the turnout is normal for city elections. However, some students remained disengaged in the process. Samantha Webster, a 19-year-old UF music and engineering freshman, said she wasnt interested in voting because she doesnt feel as invested in Gainesville as she does in her hometown. I wouldnt vote ... because I dont consider this city my city, she said. org.Elections see increased turnout of voters on campusAbout 360 students voted at the Reitz Union CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterTwo majors might be better than one, but not all UF students are rushing to Students who choose to double major are more creative and have better integrative thinking skills compared to their single-major counterparts, according to a recent study from Vanderbilt University. Steven Tepper, co-author of the study and an associate professor of sociology at Vanderbilt University, said adding a double major can enhance a students mind. [the students] were more creative to begin with based on their own self ratings, he said. We found that the double major provides students an opportunity to make connections and broaden their minds in ways they might not have had otherwise. UF student Heather ORourke said she feels her dual major of marketing and advertising has helped her develop more dynamic thinking skills because she often brings information she learned in advertising to her marketing classes and vice versa.

A public safety officer checking a suspicious car parked behind a southwestern Michigan motel early Tuesday was more than a little surprised when a deer climbed out of the trunk, stumbled onto the road and bolted into nearby woods. TV stations WWMT, WZZM and WOOD report that the driver told Kalamazoo officer David Miller he hit the deer on the road thought he had killed it and was taking it home for his family to eat. Squad car dashboard camera footage shows Miller opening the trunk, then quickly trying to close it as he spots the deer.

LOC AL FATEMAH ALBADERAlligator Contributing WriterEight students will eat, sleep and work in a downtown Gainesville mansion as part of a three-month mentoring program to promote technological innovation. HackerHouse will give the students a chance to create anything from software to robotics under one roof to pitch to investors. Its going to be a life-changing event for these kids, said Augi Lye, founder of HackerHouse. They will live, breathe what its like to be Steve Jobs or more like Steve Wozniak. The summer class starts May 6. Lye said the students, also known as cadets, will be guided by mentors including professional hacker Christian von Kleist and Student Maid founder Kristen Hadeed. I believe in having really strong friendships and relationships, Hadeed said. That is how you succeed. Students will be guided by different mentors throughout the program, and at the end, they will get to keep what they create. Cadets are exposed to different phases of not just prototyping but of starting a company, Lye said. gram will consist of students creating ideas for their prototypes. After, create a business plan to pitch. The winning prototype will receive $50,000 worth of professional local companies, Lye said.

IT KEEPS CELLS ALIVE BY DELIVERING OXYGEN TO HURT AREAS. ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 60 animals have been treated at UFs Small Animal Hospital with a hyperbaric chamber, an oxygen machine found to cure the wounds of furry friends in addition to people. This Fall, the animal hospital became the hyperbaric chamber for clinical research, said UF clinical assistant professor of integrative medicine Justin Shmalberg. The chamber is a pressurized unit that keeps cells alive by delivering oxygen to injured areas. Although it has been common in treating human patients, it has only been used for veterinary clinical patients within the last 10 years. Shmalberg said there is not much research on the clinical conditions of pets. He said the university accepted the donated chamber from a Florida-based manufacturing company because he believes more veterinarians are going to be using it in the future, So we need to start informing [them] about what sort of outcomes were having and do some clinical research on owned patients as compared to lab animals that may have been used in the past, Shmalberg said. He said the chambers high-pressure atmosphere of pure oxygen aids severe swelling. So far, there have been about 190 sessions, averaging about three sessions per animal. About 25 animals visit the hospital a year due to snake bites, a common injury the chamber has had success in relieving.

I think weve seen very encouraging results in certain types of patients, he said. hopefully publish some information about what the hyperbaric chamber can do and maybe what its limitations or side effects might be as well. THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Chamber breathes new life into local animal hospital LAUREN RICHARDSONAlligator Contributing WriterThe election of a new pope has dominated recent world news, but many Americans may have little interest in the matter. Twenty percent of Americans claimed no religious preference, according to a recently released survey, and UF associate professor David Hackett isnt surprised. What people are doing, with regard to religious observances, is theyre participating less in going together with other people in a congregational form of worship, said Hackett, who works for UFs department of religion. The results were from the 2012 General Social Survey, a poll of American adults. This is the lowest been since it started to be tracked in the 1930s, according to an analysis of the survey by researchers from Duke University and the University of California, Berkeley. Although Hackett said he does notice a growth of secularism, he insists less people going to church doesnt mean they have no beliefs. Most people, and certainly most of the University of Florida undergraduates that I encounter, say that maybe theyre not religious, but they are spiritual, Hackett said. The survey distinguished atheists, or those who do not believe in a God, from those with no religion. Three percent of those surveyed claimed to be atheists. About 19 percent of Americans are Protestant, 24 percent are Catholics and 1.5 percent are Jewish, according to the survey. According to the analysis of the survey, the results showed a greater portion of men claim no religion than women. Also, 21 percent of white people claimed no religion compared with 17 percent of African-Americans and 14 percent of Mexican-Americans. About onethird of 18to 24-year-olds claimed no religion. Alexandria Burry, an 18-yearold UF art freshman, said she thinks materialism and the constant bustle of todays society have a lot to do with the lack of religious I think, as a culture, we are very fast-paced and more selfcentered and focused on being the best that we dont rely on a god, she said. That is becoming more and more noticeable with time.More Americans claiming no religious preference, survey shows SHEA PEREZAlligator Contributing WriterPeople who continually get gel manicures could be at risk for skin cancer. The American Academy of Dermatology warns the ultraviolet light used to seal the polish to the nail can lead to skin cancer on the hand. Lindsey Johnson, a physician assistant at Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center, wrote in an email that although there isnt any solid evidence on how much ultraviolet damage can affect the hands, she recommends people protect themselves from the lights. Johnson, who said she receives gel manicures occasionally, uses anti-ultradoesnt have the gloves, she applies sunscreen to her hands. I often go to a salon that uses the safer LED light, she said. With frequent use, the gel polish can also cause nail problems such as nail thinning, according to an American Academy of Dermatology news release. The release said Dr. Chris Adigun, an assistant professor of dermatology at New York Universitys School of Medicine, explained it is unknown whether gel manicures weaken nails because of the chemicals in the polish used or the acetone used to remove the polish. Acetone, which breaks down the polish, dries the nails and irritates the skin around, according to the release. In general, any manicure left in place for an extended period of time is not a good idea because you are not seeing what is going on underneath the nail polish, she said. As is the case with most things, moderation is the key when it comes to gel manicures. But the risks dont concern Brantanique Williams. The 21-year-old UF telecommunication junior said shes been getting manicures since she was 18 and wont stop now. Honestly, you hear about things giving you cancer all the time, she said. Im still going to go every two weeks to get my gel nails done.Manicures may be harmful THEY WILL BE HELD SATURDAYS. SOFIA RATTESAlligator Contributing WriterAs part of Colorectal Cancer Awareness month, Screen for Life will offer free colonoscopy screenings to low-income Gainesville and Alachua County residents. The program, in partnership with UF Shands Cancer Center, Shands HealthCare, the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seeks to prevent colorectal cancer in vulnerable populations. Screening events will be held on the remaining Saturdays in March in Live Oak and Palatka. Dr. Thomas George, an oncologist specializing in colon cancer and director of the gastrointestinal cancer program at the UF Shands Cancer Center, said colon cancer is widespread. Its the second most common cause of cancer death in the U.S., he said. The only cancer more likely to cause death is lung cancer. George said colon cancer could develop if people dont eat enough fruits and vegetables, if they eat too much red meat or if they dont exercise enough. Unfortunately, it can also be caused by genetics. Some things you have control over, like what you eat and what you do, and some things you dont have any control over, like who your family is and who your parents are, George said. For example, despite Michelle Wright not eating red meat, shopping at health-food stores and exercising frequently, her bad genes led to colorectal cancer. Wright, 55, was diagnosed with stage three She said 90 percent of people diagnosed with colon cancer are over the age of 50, and 60 percent of cases can be prevented if people get screened early.

I check mine quite frequently. I look forward to meeting my new roommate and BFF! Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays. Yes, this is a parody piece.God Hates No One: Colorful protest against the WBC It started almost a year ago. Josef Miles was 9 years old in May 2012 when he held up a sign near a group of Westboro Baptist Church protesters at Washburn University in Topeka, Kan. The groups signs were full of the usual terrible messages containing awful words that only hurt people. Josefs read: GOD HATES NO ONE. NPR reported that as Josef considered the churchs protest, he thought, I didnt want everybody to think that Topeka has a bad image. So he thought about it for a minute and decided God hates no one was the right message. And he said he wrote it because that is true. Fair enough. After that story made its rounds through the media, Aaron Jackson decided to do something peaceful right in Westboros hometown. Jackson is a 31-year-old community-college dropout whose other projects have included opening orphanages in India and Haiti and buying a thousand acres of endangered rain forest in Peru, according to Gawker. It took him about six months, but after toodling around Google Maps in the area surrounding the churchs location in Topeka, Jackson and some friends purchased a house nearby The concept is to show that where there is hate, there is also love, said Jackson, who is also the founder of a Destin-based ported The Destin Log. The painted project is called Equality House. The reason I havent gotten into the gay rights activism is because, in a sense, its almost silly its 2013, are we really still ton Post article. But it is a real issue and kids are killing themselves. Ive wanted to do something, and I knew when I saw that house for sale that it all came together. Everyone who knows me knows that Im a little crazy, and theres no red tape in my charity. When I want to do something, I do it. Mike McKessor of Kansas City, Mo., whom Jackson hired to paint the house, wondered if other painters were scared to take on a job that is more of a statement against a church known for its political statements, the Los Angeles Times reported. Every neighbor that I encountered was so happy, and everybody was smiling when they go by, McKessor told the LA Times. It was on a busy street, and everybody slowed down and took pictures. Im not exaggerating. Dang near every car stopped and said, Good job! Good job! ... Ive never had people so happy for painting a house. This is just plain delightful. Its not even, like, offensive to anyone. If a rainbow, or multicolored, color spectrum offends you, then you need to rethink your priorities. Westboro is hopefully losing steam and value in our society: We cant imagine they had much to begin with. But like Jackson said, this is 2013.
