THE ASSOCIATED PRESSGoblin-proof chicken book wins odd-title prizeLONDON A supernaturally tinged barnyard manual has won Britains quirkiest literary award, the Diagram Prize for years oddest book title. Chicken Coop by Reginald Bakeley was awarded the prize Friday by trade magazine The Bookseller.

It is described by its Massachusetts-based publisher, Conari Press, as the essential primer for banishing the dark fairy creatures that are lurking in the dark corners and crevices of your life.

MONDAY, MARCH 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffEllie Schmidt, 80, dances in a chair during a Dance for Life class in the Nadine McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion on Friday morning. The program aims to help Parkinsons disease patients. DANCING CAN HELP PEOPLE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Writer in sync with the gentle piano music. Schmidt, 80, of Gainesville, isnt taking up dance as a hobby. Shes dancing to counteract Parkinsons disease. Schmidt participates in the UF Center for Arts in Medicines Dance for Life program. The program helps Parkinsons disease patients target their balance, strength and mobility to slow down the progression of the disease. The center received a $30,500 grant to conduct a research study of the effects of dance on Parkinsons disease. The 16-week study, which began earlier this month, is still looking for research participants. But on Friday, program participants and UF dance majors were treated to a class taught by instructors from the Mark Morris Dance Group in New York. The group, which performed later that night at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, developed a therapeutic dance program for Parkinsons disease patients. Chelsea Moehlenbrock, a 22-yearold applied physiology and kinesiology senior, has been involved with Dance for Life for a year and a half. As a program assistant, she conducts research and helps teach the classes. In her experience, Moehlenbrock said shes seen physical, cognitive and pecially through social involvement. Taking dance classes is way more fun than physical therapy, she said. Schmidt, who was diagnosed in 2010, has been attending the program for two years. She said dancing helps her balance and coordination. Its part of my schedule now, Schmidt said. I miss it if I dont come.

Todays question: Do you think Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe should continue his re-election campaign?Ladies Night: New comedy lineup? Dont really believe everything you read in the New York Post. Comedian John Mulaney said in his special, titled New In Town, that reading the New York Post is like talking to someone who heard the news, and now theyre trying to give you the gist. Its like someone read a better newspaper, Mulaney said, and now theyre trying to text you everything they can remember. Doesnt have to be right, just has to be short. Recently, the Post has speculated on who will take over Jimmy Fallons Late Night hosting gig. Dont be alarmed: Fallon isnt necessarily disappearing. This is all based on the assumption Fallon will be taking over after Jay Lenos contract to host The Tonight Show runs out in 2014. is head writer for Saturday Night Live and the Weekend Update host for the show. That would be an easy-ish transition, as Fallon once hosted Update, as well, when he was on SNL. But in recent years, Fallon has found his niche on Late Night. He lost a lot of favor with audiences by the end of his SNL run mostly because he broke character in so many of the sketches. (To be fair, who could blame him because those sketches were hilarious.) So, once he left the show and started hosting Late Night, hes been able to really develop his own brand of comedy through the show, and he seems to have really come into his own. The Posts other guess for new host of Late Night is Howard Stern. Personally, we dont see the appeal for Stern at all. His raunderstand that Stern hosting a late-night talk show would knows. You could probably come up with a better idea for a host yourselves. Thats kind of what BuzzFeed reporter Adam B. Vary did over the weekend with a post titled Potential New Late Night Hosts Who Arent White Men. So many funny women could do this job, yall. There are so many more than the article even lists. Like, have you seen YouYou Deserve A Drink, respectively, could probably host Late Vary mentioned ladies like Maya Rudolph and Amy Sedaris. Lets think outside of the box when it comes down to choosing new talent to showcase. Thats all were asking. There are so many more options than the obvious ones. Thats saying a lot because Meyers is amazing at what he does, and wed be happy to watch him be funny on our TV screens forever. But there should be room for new growth. We know the new lineup will be great because Leno wont be involved any more. Kim Kardashians beauty has lied to you I dont understand it. I just cant understand it. How can a beautiful woman look in the mirror and tell herself shes girl based on anything thats happened to me recently. This is just something Ive been thinking about for a while and had a conversation with a friend about. E-O-U-S girls who treat themselves like dirt. They wont or self-worth because theyre too busy staring in the mirror looking for imperfections to amplify and hammer themselves over. What the hegemony of supermodel narratives of beauty in our culture has done is create an unreachable standard of false beauty that poisons everyone with its consequences. perfect bodies, perfect everything. decide based on some arbitrary criterion some dudes are legs men, etc. whether theyll even consider her as a possible mate. (It works the other way, too, obviously, but I do have a character limit.) Both sides of the cycle continue to reinforce each other, and we all spin down further and further into what W. B. Yeats described by saying simply, The best lack all conviction, while the worst/ Are full of passionate intensity. The most wonderfully beautiful women I know beautiful not just in the face but in words, intelligence and grace will never know how beautiful they are. They lack all conviction in themselves.

Yeah, we, as a human race, could continue to create the same guitar-driven rock music for the next hundred years, or we could continue to press on into new exciting musical frontiers like rap, hip-hop and electronica. Yeah, we could rewrite Sylvia Plath and the confessional poets a million more times (note: poetry on the Internet is the embodiment of this), or we could write silly poems about coke-snorting ostriches and talking watermelons to make ourselves laugh.

MONDAY, MARCH 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Scouts honor?Dear Kaitlyn McGowan, I read your article on gender inequality in the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. I couldnt agree more. The fact that girls and boys have different badges and different requirements enforces the social construct of, Boys should do this, and girls should do that. I absolutely hate when people say gender equality is important but then get offended when you challenge a construct such as the Boy and Girl Scouts and how they are obviously not equal. I think if more people participated in feminist activity for the equal rights of males and females, this country may actually signify what it is supposed to one day. Sincerely, James Williams Columns restore faith in paperMr. Skipper, Thank you for your column. I really enjoyed it, and it has sort of revived my faith in your generation. Believe me, it needed some revival, as I have read other articles written by your fellow students and was totally disgusted. One had as its major subject the act that scumbag Clinton and his young slut entered into, and the other was about the writer, a female male, talking about how he lost his boyfriend. I also found the article by Justin Hayes to be very interesting and well-written. Two excellent, commonsense arguments in one edition must be never be asked to write again. I am 81 and have some different views than you do, which is natural. I am Catholic and certainly believe in God, but I have serious issues with the hierarchy of the church. But when I hear these young a---s go on about abortion, drugs, free sex, binge boozing, etc., my stomach turns, as I get so ticked off. I am a great believer in giving kids who dont behave a swift kick or slap in the butt, and I just wish more parents had felt the same way My wife and I go to Shands at UF about every six to eight weeks, as she has a very serious eye problem. We go to the eye clinic, so she can get injected in the eyeball with a medication. So far, the good doctors have saved the sight in her one good eye, for which we are very, very thankful. Because your articles are printed on Wednesdays, I will try to get her appointments on Wednesday, so I can read your column. Once again, thanks, Matt SimonsLetters to the EditorThe person who created the double standard between men and women in terms of sexual relations has forever changed our society. Christina Aguilera put this double standard into lyrics, The guy gets all the glory the more he can score / While the girl can do the same, and yet, you call her a whore in her song Cant Hold Us Down. Aguilera sums up that this double standard makes it socially acceptable for men to have vast sexual experiences with many partners, but its unacceptable for women to do the same. This idea has been heavily instilled in society and can be seen across genders as well as within them. I believe this double standard is unfair because there is no reason for people to pass judgment on others based upon their sexual life, curiosity or experience. The reality of the double standard allows for a male who has sex with many partners to be considered the man, but a female who has sex with many partners to be considered a slut. The majority of negative names that are associated with a person who is sexually experienced are directed at females. Slut, whore, skank, sloot, prostitute, loose, hooker, never-ending list for women. However, when analyzing the labels, there are only a few that are restricted to men, and they are not derogatory in nature. These include stud, player and hunk. The negative names that exist for men are derived from the root word for the negative names for women such as man-whore and man-slut. This reiterates the double standard by highlighting that the most derogatory labels for men come from the labels for women, which shows how society has a negative connotation for women who are sexually experienced. women feel guilty or inferior for engaging in certain kinds of sexual behaviors that go against traditional gender expectations. These gender expectations are derived from the double standard because men and women are encouraged to behave differently in regards to sex. A woman can become a target for slut-shaming based upon the type of clothes she wears, the way she speaks, her reputation or her personality. What makes matters worse is it is not men who are solely responsible for slut-shaming. Here at UF, women are slut-shamed by other women due to common stereotypes. For example, females will consider females who are in a sorority to be sluts because they socialize with fraternities. Also, women will give other women dirty looks or gossip about them if they are wearing provocative clothing at a bar or at a club. Because the problem of the double standard is occurring among sexes and not just across them, it makes it seem impossible any progress will be made to ensure gender equality. I came to the realization it was not a person who created the double standard, but our culture as a whole. The American way of life has created different standards for the way men and women are supposed to act. In Michael Kimmels The Gendered Society, he explains Gendered love, American style has existed since the mid-19th century. Love has been separated into two spheres: one for men and one for women. The spheres give guidelines on how genders have to behave. Women are supposed to ignore the physical aspects of love and focus more on talking and feeling, while men are supposed to focus on the shared physical activities and sex when in love. These different styles of loving create the double standard because they cause gender inequality due to pre-existing gender differences. These gender differences make it acceptable for men to engage in sex more often than women because they are supposed to be more physical while in love. Society expects women to resist and not initiate sex because they are supposed to be more emotional while in love. This double standard will never make sense to me. This subjectivity women face has hindered our society by making women feel inferior if they engage in the same sexual activities men do. In order for change to happen, more people need to be aware of the double standard and think twice before they judge others based on traditional gender expectations.

MARY FRANCISAlligator Contributing WriterThe Reitz Union expansion is still looking for student input. The Cannon Design team, which is designing the renovation, came back to UF earlier this month to meet with campus departments and groups who frequently use the building. UF student MaryLee Pollitt, an 18-year-old international studies freshman, said she thinks the Reitz Union needs to add a grocery store for students. Kathy Keeter said student organizations need more space, especially for dance clubs. Youre constantly dodging people who are dancing throughout the Reitz because no one has a place to practice, said the 21-year-old political science, Spanish and womens studies senior. Head designer of the Making it Reitz project Roland Lemke said the new extension will be open to students during demolition of the existing building, which starts in June. Lemke said UFs general contractor is aware he will have to work around students to minimize the noise impact of the construction. It wont be completely quiet, he said, but the contractor will be courteous of the Reitzs neighbors. Lemke said the contractor plans to work as much as possible in late afternoons and on weekends. The team of architects released a virtual tour on the Making it Reitz website in February to show the plans for renovation and expansion. Nichole Campbell, assistant professor in UFs Department of Interior Design, said the video shows the shell of the building has been designed but the interior hasnt. Lemke said the video was intended to keep students involved in the process. Construction for the 100,000square-foot expansion will start shortly after Summer A classes begin. The project as a whole is planned to be complete by June 2015, Lemke said. The Orange & Brew restaurant will be torn down during Summer but will be redone with a new design by Fall. During the construction, all facilities will stay open, Lemke said. Students will need to relocate to the new building in November 2014, when renovation to the existing building occurs. Students need to know the union will never close, he said. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 25, 2013Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffRainy Day BluesCity workers clean up debris from an oak tree that fell on a Toyota Tundra at the corner of Southwest 12th Street and Southwest Second Avenue on Sunday. A RECORD 93 TEAMS PARTICIPATED. ELENI KOUVATSOSAlligator Contributing WriterThis weekends ninth annual UF Relay for Life fundraiser raised $130,971.84 for the American Cancer Society. A record 93 teams and about 2,400 people participated in the 18-hour, overnight event despite a sudden change of venue from Flavet Field to the Stephen C. OConnell Center because of predicted rain. UF civil engineering senior Meagan Dickey, 23, said the last-minute location change forced the staff to shrink the campsites but didnt alter many other plans. Everyone was just closer together, which isnt a problem, she said. Teams held fundraisers months in advance to raise money for the cause, and they set up activities and games to raise money during the Friday night event. Participants decorated their campsites for this years theme, Game for a Cure. Fundraisers included Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia serenades, the physical therapy programs massages, Phi Sigma Rhos balloon animals and Pre-Dental ASDAs water pong competition. Alpha Epsilon Delta was the top fundraising team this year. The pre-health honor society raised more than jade level, the second-highest fundraising level. Sarah Johnson, a 21-year-old UF linguistics junior and leukemia survivor, spoke at the opening ceremonies. I let nothing and no one get in the way of my goals and ambitions, she said. I knew I had survived for a reason. Dickey said the event was a success. At UF, we go all night, she said.UF Relay participants set record THE ART INCLUDED RELIEF AND TACTILE PIECES. MAX MATTERNAlligator Contributing WriterA few years ago, Sharon Bartz had a gentleman walk up to her and start touching her three-opossum relief-art piece. He was feeling and feeling but couldnt guess what it was, so Bartz told him. After the gentleman felt the rest of the art in the gallery, he came back to Bartz and thanked her for showing him what opossums looked like. Now that that brings tears, Bartz said. Bartz was one of many artists who brought artwork to the sixth annual MindSight at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art on Saturday. MindSight offers an opportunity for individuals who have limited or no sight to experience art through touch. The art consisted of relief and tactile art, or art that people can touch. Sitting right by the art pieces, the artists were there to help the visitors feel and understand each piece. We do this because you cant just go into a museum and start touching art, said Rachel Fernandez, the former president of the Gator Lions Club. And for the blind comMindSight, though, is not just for the visually impaired. It offered an opportunity for those who can see to be blindfolded and led around the exhibit. For those that can see, when they take the blindfold off, they tend to say, This is what I was touching? Fernandez said.MindSight offered hands-on art experience for blind It wont be completely quiet, but the contractor will be courteous of the Reitzs neighbors.Roland Lemkehead designerLOCAL CHARMAINE MILLERAlligator Contributing Writerdren who moved out of the recently closed Arbor House are now all relocated. Theyre all doing well, said John Barli, director of Gainesvilles Catholic Charities. We are continuing to keep up with them but not on In January, Catholic Charities, a major source of funds for the shelter, announced it wouldnt renew a yearlong donation agreement with the house. As a result, the women who lived in the shelter, located off Northwest Sixth Street, moved out on the weekend of March 2. The house, which provided transitional housing and counseling services for homeless pregnant women, shut its doors due to lack of funds. Three women and their children have moved into independent settings some with relatives. Two of the women and their children are staying in a Jacksonville shelter that offers the same services as the shelter in Gainesville, Barli said. A spokeswoman from the center in Jacksonville said the women are adjusting well. Barli said the Jacksonville shelter is in regular communication with Catholic Charities. Although Arbor House no longer has funding, it will not remain shuttered for long. I think someones going to come Barli said, but not necessarily to the extent that Arbor House did. The schooling and counseling services made the house more of a long-term home than an emergency shelter. But plans are under way for the house to start providing similar services again, said Audrie Harris, chair of the Arbor House board. The grants the house received from the county and city have not yet expired. To make use of the funds, the house must serve lowincome people in the area, Harris said. She said the board is in negotiations with the city, county and St. Francis House. She said the board is hoping St. Francis House will take over responsibility for the house. They have plenty of pregnant women and women that have small children, Harris said. They would there. The organizations are waiting for approval from the city and county. We do this because you cant just go into a museum and start touching art.Rachel Fernandezformer president of the Gator Lions ClubStudents needed to make Reitz transition

Luckily for the Gators, they have an unbelievably Coast. Everybody knows FGCU beat Miami, Georgetown twice. All week, youll hear that FGCU is for real. And maybe the Eagles are good. But last year everybody bought into 15-seed Norfolk 23. UF is by no means guaranteed to blow out FGCU, but the early lines that have Florida as an 11-point favorite are way too low. While FGCU is a great story, teams dont simply improve by a factor of 10 overnight. Once Florida gets past FGCU, the Gators will still be three wins away from a title.

ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer The Gators ran out of time on Sunday in Nashville, Tenn. No. 2 Vanderbilt (21-4, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) defeated Florida (11-14, 2-4 SEC) SEC rules, no inning of a Sunday game can start after 4:15 p.m. EST, which cost the Gators an opportunity for their second comeback of the game. Florida shook off its shortest outing from a starting pitcher this year with four straight runs after falling behind 2-0. UF appeared to be headed toward a series-clinching win until the wind picked up and the skies turned a shade darker. A 49-minute weather delay ensued with Florida leading 4-2 and resumed at 3:10 p.m. Right-hander Ryan Harris entered the game in the bottom of third. Mike Yastrzemski scored from third after Harris balked when his cleat got stuck on the mound mid-delivery. Florida mustered just two singles following the rain delay. The Commodores, meanwhile, took advantage of miscues by the Gators. Harris stayed on the mound in the sixth as the rain picked up. A wild pitch with two outs to pinch hitter Xavier Turner on a 0-2 count advanced Spencer Navin to third. Navin scored on Turners ground ball to Florida shortstop Casey Turgeon. The sophomore couldnt make the throw in time. Florida experienced trouble all weekend adjusting to the AstroTurf at Charles Hawkins Field. single to Turgeon for the winning run in the seventh off left-hander Daniel Gibson. There were a lot of things that happened in the last three innings that were uncharacteristic, coach Kevin OSullivan said. We had been playing good defense as of late. We kicked some balls, (and) that led to a couple of runs. The Gators staged their ill-fated comeback attempt starting in the second with a solo home run by Taylor Gushue. They added three more runs two innings later loaded walk by Brady Roberson. Freshman right-hander Eric Hanhold started for the Gators, lasting only 25 pitches. Hanhold faced six batters and walked two of them. Throw in a hit by pitch and seven straight balls in just two-thirds of an inning and OSullivan had enough from Harris. Right-handdidnt allow an earned run in 3.2 innings. Sunday was another missed opportunity for Florida. The Gators scored three runs in the fourth after having four at-bats with the bases loaded. When Gibson struck out Navin to end the seventh, Florida didnt have any more chances. Time had run out. It was an important game. We talked about it yesterday and this morning, OSullivan said. I thought we came out of the gates ish it. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.
