THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE RECOMMENDED DAILY INTAKE IS 2,000 MILLIGRAMS. SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Contributing WriterVerna Groger believes cooking more meals at home can reduce her salt intake. And that, according to a new study, can only be good for her health. Results from the 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study were presented last week and stated over-consumption of salt contributed to 2.3 million deaths from cardiovascular diseases worldwide. In the United States, there were 429 deaths for every million adults. Groger, a registered dietician at the Gainesville Haven Hospice, said the abundance of processed food people eat causes them to take in more than 4,000 milligrams of sodium each day. The World Health Organizations recommended daily sodium intake is 2,000 milligrams. People are so used to the processed foods that are high in sodium, sugar and fat that our taste buds are acculturated, she said. The American Heart Association advises moderate consumption of the Salty Six: common foods high in sodium, including sandwiches, soups, cold cuts and cured meats, bread and rolls, pizza and poultry. Leonore Antoni, owner of Corner Latin Confusion restaurant, said many Hispanic dishes, as well as other exotic foods, use A lot of American foods rely on salt because they dont use as many spices as we do, Antoni said. Without the salt, it would be very bland.Salty food kills, study shows ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing WriterThe Rock n Roll Camp for Girls, founded in Portland, Ore., is expanding to Gainesville. Chelsea Carnes, a 24-year-old UF history senior and music teacher at Studio Percussion, started the camp in Gainesville. After volunteering at the girls camps in Jacksonville and Orlando, I felt very inspired by the feeling of empowerment being given to girls. And having the instruments needed at Studio Percussion, I decided to start one here with some friends, said Carnes, the camps co-director. The theme is empowerment for girls. Its especially interesting that they are trying to pursue this sense of empowerment for girls through rock n roll, which is typically seen as masculine, said Kathy Keeter, a 21-year-old UF Spanish, political science and womens studies senior and vice president of external affairs of UFs Womens Student Association. The camp will run from Aug. 5 to Aug. 10 at Studio Percussion, 2512 NE First Blvd., Building 500, and is open to girls bethey will choose an instrument. During the camp, attendees will spend half the day learning the instrument, while they spend the other half in arts and crafts and womens history workshops. When the camp ends, the girls will put together a performance at the music venue 1982.

THE STUDY FOUND REGULAR USE OF ASPIRIN MAY REDUCE RISK. SOFIA RATTESAlligator Contributing WriterAn aspirin a day might keep skin cancer away. A new study comprised of about 60,000 postmenopausal women discovered that people who used aspirin on a regular basis were 21 percent less likely to be diagnosed with the deadliest form of skin cancer: melanoma. Aspirin is kind of a wondrous drug ing new uses for it, said Paul Doering, pharmacy professor at the UF College of Pharmacy, anywhere from protection against heart attacks, to protection against colon cancer. The list is a mile long of things that aspirin is allegedly good for. was linked to a 30 percent reduction in melanoma risk, according to a study published in the journal Cancer. However, Doering said there is a terrible temptation to associate what they found with a direct cause-and-effect relationship. He said this type of research is observational, where they dont actually administer drugs to people and watch them for a period of time to see what goes on with them. Saajan Patel, a 21-year-old UF College of Pharmacy graduate student, said participants need to be in a controlled environment. They cant sunbathe and take aspirin, assuming it will prevent skin cancer, he said. The study did not conclude aspirin is the cause of the decrease in cancer risk. It simply found regular use was associated with a drop in risk among Caucasian women who were studied. The study relied on self-reports of aspirin use. We have to be very careful to interpret, what does this really mean? Doering said. I think its way premature to suggest that all women out there ought to gobble down an aspirin every day to prevent skin cancer. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffA new study shows postmenopausal women who use aspirin regularly are 21 percent less likely to be diagnosed with melanoma.

McCarty said the fact that Floridas unemployment rate, at 7.8, is 0.1 percent lower than the U.S. could have contributed to the rise. time in quite some time that Florida has been under the U.S., he said. But McCarty said this is a temporary turning point for Florida. There will be effects that Floridians can feel, he said. It will just take a little time. However, not everyone is as optimistic. Camille Jamshidi, an 18-yearold UF health science freshman, said she was unsure about the health of the economy. Its looking like it could go up, she said. But Im not certain if it could get better.

JORDAN ALBRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterWhile he was up in Prague during the Holocaust, Petr Ginz dreamed about space and documented the horrors around him in his diary. However, in 1944, he died alone at Auschwitz, leaving underground magazine and more than 100 drawings and paintings. He was 16 years old, but some people believe he could have been the next Leonardo DaVinci. To commemorate Ginzs life, the Bob Graham Center for Public Service will screen the documentary The Last Flight of Petr Ginz at 7 tonight at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. UF partnered with Wake Forest University to produce co-director of the documentary. It will feature animations of Ginzs work. Its a different Holocaust story, he said. Its aimed as much at a young audience as it is an older audience. The screening is also sponsored by UF Performing Arts, UFs Center for Jewish Studies, the College of Journalism and Communications, UFs Jewish Student Union, UF Hillel and Accent Speakers Bureau. Tickets are free and will be available at noon at the Phillips of four tickets a person. A panel discussion will follow the movie. The panel will include Roberts, Kenneth D.

Soonkyu Chung, a UF food science and human nutrition assistant professor, said she doesnt think its proper for the company to promote nutrients in its drink when it doesnt contain actual fruit.

Siegel said she is pleasantly surprised by how aggressively the marriage equality movement has spread. If youd asked me a year ago, I wouldve told you that it would never happen in my lifetime, she said. This is vibrant, this is real. This could happen by the time Im ready to get married. But not everyone feels the same way as Siegel. Students like Amore Kotze, a 21-year-old UF mechanical engineering junior, believes that this law has caused a lot of unnecessary hatred. People are being told, If you dont agree with this and you dont pass this, then you are closed-minded, and you are a bigot. I dont think thats fair, she said. Just because I believe the law shouldnt pass doesnt mean that Im closed-minded or that I dont love those people, because thats not true.

We look around the farmers market, Publix, WalMart, Winn-Dixie, etc. How do we know if we did well on an exam? We compare our grades to the class average and our friends grades in the same class. How do we compare people as a whole? If we were to put a numerical value on how much people are worth, that would objectify them. But we do that. The media and our own observations of result of societys narrow expectations. For us to appreciate someone, we must compare. Comparison is inevitable. And it is also harmful for your selfworth. Movies and TV shows often cast tall, white, blonde and very sexual women. Men are hunky, broad-shouldered and brown-haired. Pop culture books often have a female protagonist who is completely normal, naive and naturally gorgeous. She is pretty, poised and perfect. look and act like is based on what we see. Women are more likely to be affected by advertising. Fifty percent of commercials aimed at girls speak about physical attractiveness, although none of the commercials aimed at boys refer to physical appearance. Seemingly, the most important trait a woman can have is her looks, even if these looks are unhealthy. The average woman in the U.S. is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. The average U.S. model is 5 feet 11 inches tall and only 117 pounds, according to The Eating Disorder Foundation. Most runway models meet the Body Mass Index physical criteria for anorexia. As a result of advertising and heavy preferences from the overestimate their body size. Victorias Secret models are classic examples. There are few women in the world who we all admire and love as much as them. Women want to be like them. Men want to be with them. Their existence is hard to deny, and we call them Angels. Everyone has their favorite the Aussie with the dimples or the dark-haired Brazilian babe? Angels are not Homo sapiens. They are a group thats members look very exotic, tall, thin, toned and perfectly curvy. Such perfection in one package is too good to be true. After discussions about Victorias Secret in advertising classes and some Googling of my own (like: Candice Swanepoel in real life and Adriana Lima without makeup), Ive reached the conclusion Victorias Setising department of Americas largest lingerie retailer. women are unreal, they do not believe us. These models are paid to look good for a living. They work out for hours with their personal trainers each day. They follow strict diets and eat meals prepared by their nutritionists. Their butts, breasts and faces are pounded with layers of makeup. Their bodies are slathered with lotion before a photoshoot, and their bras are push-ups, padded and stuffed with silicon inserts. Under direction from a handful of people, and with perfect lighting, they pose in the proper angle to emphasize their perfect bodies. Their images are then edited and airbrushed to have thinner thighs, smaller waists and more cleavage. Miranda Kerr is an A-cup, however, with plastic surgery via Photoshop, she looks like a plump C-cup, according to www.skinnyvscurvy.com. Selita Ebanks, another all about creating the illusion of this amazing body on the runway. People dont realize that there are about 20 layers of makeup on my butt alone. Everyone, more or less, knows models are unreal, and we have unrealistic expectations of ourselves. Yet we continue to aim to be as fake as they are. The media has created an image that, in actuality, doesnt exist at all. Even the models do not look like their pictures. Raksheen Ayaz is an advertising and business junior at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays.Secret Agent Woman: Obamas Secret Service pick is a smart oneThis week, President Barack Obama named the next diagencys history, a woman was picked. Lets give a round of applause to Julia Pierson, ladies and gents. Here are our top three reasons why putting a woman in charge of the Secret Service is a great idea: Remember last year, when several Secret Service agents on assignment in Colombia brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms? During the Colombia prostitution scandal, the Secret Service lost the trust of many Americans, and failed to live up to the high expectations placed on it. said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in an article by the Detroit Free Press. Ms. Pierson has a lot of work ahead of her to create a culture that respects the important job the agency is tasked with. I hope she succeeds in restoring lost credibility in the Secret Service. Were pretty sure she can get everyone back on track, even though I guess hiring hookers in foreign countries is like Americas third favorite pastime. Were great at keeping them, and were great at leaking them. If Pierson is just like every other woman ever, shell be great at Ms. Pierson got the job because of her 30 years of experience and because the leadership skills shes shown throughout her career at the United States Secret Service, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, in a report by USA Today. The fact that the reason she was chosen for the job. Like, no offense or anything, but its rare you hear a prominent person in the news who also happened to graduate from UCF. A report from The Daily Beast reads: Central Florida was with the Orlando Police Department, where of the Secret Service, turning in exemplary work and receiving a series of promotions that eventually took her to Washington. Shes hit every position on the way up to chief of staff, Paul Public Affairs, said when she was named chief of staff. He said it was absolutely amazing. Her rise is especially remarkable considering the macho culture that she was operating in and had to navigate. There you have it, everyone. We think we can all feel plenty secure in Obamas selection. Pierson appears to be a hard worker. Of course, we write this glowing editorial for her now, and who knows what strange past she might have that wont come to light until crass journalists get ahold of it. Until then, we have full faith in how Pierson will run things, and were excited to see how she does. Raksheen Ayazopinions@alligator.org

theAvenue THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUE HOODIE ALLEN PERFORMS WEDNESDAY. COURTNEY NACHLASAvenue Contributing WriterGhetto backgrounds, criminal records and drug history are some things associated with the rappers who dominate iPods across America. That is until a student from the University of Pennsylvania with a dream came along and changed the game. Steven Markowitz, 24, was once an average white, Jewish kid from Long Island until he became Americas sold-out rap star. Markowitz, known as Hoodie Allen, will perform his recent release, Crew Cuts, at High Dive Wednesday. Though many students may remember Hoodies Gainesville debut last September with Childish Gambino on Flavet Field, Hoodie will headline the event this time. underneath the hood, the Avenue talked to Markowitz about what it takes to make it. Q: What would you say are the differences in performing with Childish Gambino and performing with Aer? A: The main difference, I guess, is you know with the Childish show, I was obviously playing for a majority of people who had no idea who I was. I was just an opener on that show, which was awesome cause I got to get in front of so many people. But now, this is my tour and my fans, who know all the words, coming and showing up. Q: Why make your most recent release, Crew Cuts, free? A: Really, I just wanted to give back to all the fans who supported All American, cause I ever put anything up for sale, and the response was amazing. So, this is like my way of saying, Heres my next album. Its free; enjoy it. Q: What makes this album different from All American? A: I think the main difference is musicality. We really tried to make the sounds on Crew Cuts a little more diverse, a little more complicated. Overall, I feel like it has a little bit more heart and soul to it. Q: Whats your favorite song to perform from Crew Cuts? A: Two Lips (Featuring OCD Moosh and Twist). Q: dent enough to leave a secure lifestyle and pursue a music career? A: I wasnt 100 percent conof faith sort of one of those things where, when you know, like, that you want to do something and something is right, sometimes you have to go for it, even if you dont have [a] safety net to fall back on. Q: Who is on your iPod? A: Kanye, Kid Cudi, Drake. Q: Will you visit Alpha Epsilon Pi as an alumnus while youre here? A: I suppose anything is possible. Tell them to go get tickets, and if I feel the love during the show, Im sure Ill make an appearance. Q: All of the sorority girls want to know if youre single. Are you? A: Um, good question, sorority girls. But yeah, I have to let them down on that one. Even though Hoodie is taken, all of his tickets arent. Tickets to Hoodie Allen with opening act Aer are available at Hear Again Music, High Tides and www. ticketweb.com for $18 in advance and $21 the day of the show.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Underneath the Hood MEGHAN PRYCEAvenue WriterUnderground art isnt restricted to street art at the Mass Visual Arts third annual art exhibition. derground-themed showcase will begin at 6 p.m. Friday through April 7 at The Wooly, 20 N. Main St. Dale Gunnoe, 38, director of Mass Visual Arts, said the theme is ambiguous to leave open interpretation. Gunnoe said people can expect different types of art, video and sound piece, from artists throughout the country, some professional and others amateur. Constance Humphries, 46, of Asheville, N.C., will eo displayed during the exhibition. The piece, which she created last year, explores the emotions people hide. Her feelings about her parents divorce inspired the video, she said. My work is very personal, she said. Thats usually where it starts. She said her work is abstract and doesnt tell a story. Margaret Ross Tolbert, of Gainesville, takes a different approach with her art. She said she wanted to show a narrative. Tolbert, who has participated in the event before, will display a painting and a video this year. She hopes the show gives her the opportunity to break into new circles. Im just excited to see what a lot of the artists come up with, she said.Underground art display surfaces Friday STEPHANIE BAGUIDYAvenue Contributing WriterHave you ever listened to your favorite bands album and wondered, Thats it? As a consumer, youre not the only one, and the music industry is feeling the consequences. The music industry could make about $450 million more than its already $2.6 billion in revenue if artists, managers and labels offered additional content to fans, according to a recent Nielsen study. SXSW surveyed 4,000 consumers for the study, which examined the degree to which fans are willing to connect with artists through exclusive merchandise like limited-edition signed posters, bonus tracks, T-shirts and handwritten lyric sheets. I think that the music industry is constantly changing because society is changing, said Lindsie Herring, a 20-year-old UF telecommunication junior and former intern at Country 103.7 the Gator. Fans are willing to pay for extras if given the opportunity, according to the study. Of the most-active music buyers, 53 percent said they would be willing to pay more for a favorite band while its recording a new album. Less-active buyers were predictably less likely to drop extra dough on music-related products. Even the group Nielsen calls Ambivalent Consumers, which are 22 percent of the population and spend an average of $73 a year on music, said they would buy unique material if given the opportunity. Director of programming for the College of Journalism and Communications, Jerry Butler, said technology such as the Internet is the reason for the change in the music industry. As a listener, as a consumer, we like to think that its all about us when in fact its still a business, Butler said.Behind the music: Arists could cash in on fangirlsThe industry is worth $2.6 billion

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Friend, Your man friend said it wasnt a bad thing, so I wouldnt worry too much about trying to be the sex goddess youre thinking of. You see how it feels. Maybe youll like being in control more than you think. Regardless, I highly recommend you try your naked-ambush idea just for fun. But remember: With great power comes great responsibility. Dear Mediocre Advice, I was in bed with my man friend the other night when he mentioned he feels I am sometimes timid in bed. I felt like I havent been the sex goddess he wants me to be. He said it wasnt a bad thing, just an observation. Pouncing on dudes isnt usually my style. I prefer they make ambushing him at every corner? Dear Friend, er it was actually good. Its a crappy feeling to constantly them doubt you. Despite popular belief, sex does not always need to be amazing. Sometimes, its just satisfying, be exhausting. Let him know if he really was bad in bed, e shouldnt beat himself up about it. Right now, he is acting like youre out of his league, and if this continues, that may Dear Mediocre Advice, The guy Im with has a phobia of bad sex and has to ask how it was after every time. Its consistently fantastic which I tell him but Im afraid he might not believe me because hes always asking. Any sugges tions for things I can say or do to get him to stop doubting himself? Dear Friend, should be the only person popping his public settings. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it OK to pop my boyfriends pimples in public?

But senior Jennifer George grabbed the rebound to give the Gators a chance to avoid overtime UFs 81-77 loss to Charlotte two seasons ago came in overtime with one Bonds took full advantage, working into the lane and scoring a layup with 3 seconds remaining. Jaterra lives for those situations; she is a When Jennifer made a champions play and got that offensive rebound and we had the last possession, I knew if Jaterra was going to have anything to do with it, this game Bonds remembered the pain from when Florida fell to Charlotte two years ago during her freshman season. She scored a gamehigh 23 points in the losing effort. Bonds came through again on Wednesday night. She led the Gators with 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting while adding four assists, three rebounds and two steals. As soon as I found out that we played Charlotte, I immediately thought about our 17-point lead (in the 2010-11 matchup), and Bonds said. It was in the back of my mind throughout the whole game. I didnt want Charlotte battled back midway through the second. George, who averaged just 4.5 points in WNIT wins against Florida International and Winthrop, played her best 20 minutes of basketball prior to halftime.

Comeback win propels Florida to WNIT Elite EightsSOFTBaALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINBriana Little stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning. Floridas potential 10th straight victory against rival Florida State was on the line. Little watched two pitches go by before launching a 1-1 offering over the Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium scoreboard to win the game 7-3 for No. 3 Florida (32-3, 7-2 Southeastern Conference) in front of a record crowd of 2,443. The homer was Littles sixth of the season and her third career grand slam. I saw it off the bat, said. Usually you trot; I Littles trip around the diamond wasnt planned. Extra innings were unexpected. The Gators had trouble getting the bat on nings, and it came on a passed ball. When UF did get runners on base, batters could do nothing against FSU starter Lacey Waldrops off-speed pitches. Florida loaded the bases in the sixth after Kelsey Horton reached base on a throwing error by Florida State third baseman Courtney Senas. Stephanie Tofft walked and Taylor Schwarz was hit by a pitch, but Ensley Gammel and Bailey Castro both struck out to end the inning and Floridas momentum. Freshmen Kelsey Stewart and Kirsti Merritt went down in short order to begin the seventh, and it looked like the Gators winning streak would come to an end. Haeger and Little drew walks, bringing Horton to the plate. Horton hit a weak ground ball to Senas Gators rally for 7-3 victory against Seminoles in extra innings Obviously very, very proud of resilience.Amanda ButlerUF coachsSEE sSOFTBaALL, Pa A GE 16LLittle

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffJunior Hannah Rogers pitches during Floridas 7-3 win against FSU on Wednesday at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. END OF GREGULATION Billy Donovan probably isnt going anywhere. But he has to at least think about the opening at UCLA, right? The reasons he wont leave are fairly obvious. According to USA Today, his total pay of $3,639,800 for the 2011-12 season ranked behind only Kentuckys John Calipari, Louisvilles Rick Pitino and Dukes Mike Krzyzewski. Donovan has had nothing but glowing things to say about living in Gainesville. His oldest son, Billy, plays for UF and will be eligible through 2014. His youngest son, Connor, is still a few years away from high school. His 72-year-old father, William, coaches the seventh and eighth grade basketball team at Gainesvilles Queen of Peace Academy. The UF practice facility underwent a $1.8 million renovation in Sept. 2007. Athletics Director Jeremy Foley has shown a commitment to winning and building a successful program. Very few coaches have ever won a national championship, let alone two, at one school before choosing to leave for as an assistant at Kentucky, so UK would make sense as his dream job. But, when the position opened in 2007 and 2009, Donovan publicly shot down the rumors. The job of Floridas mens basketball coach is a great one, especially for Billy Donovan. But Donovan is in his 17th season at Florida. Hes only 47 years old, so he could easily have another 20 years left. Do we really expect that hell be the coach at UF for 37 seasons? Jim Boeheim, the longest-tenured coach in the NCAA, is about Krzyzewski is in his 33rd season. Judging by their success, lengthy tenures arent unreasonable. But coaching at Syracuse or Duke is different from coaching at Florida. Trying to rank the most desirable jobs in college basketball would do little more than make people angry, but theres a pretty solid top tier. In alphabetical order: Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Syracuse and UCLA. You can make arguments for a few others, but there arent any false positives on that list. Those programs have all won at least 1,700 games. Florida has won 1,293. With the exception of Duke, which plays at historic Cameron Indoor, each programs stadium holds more fans than the OConnell Center. With all due respect to the ODome, each is considerably nicer and/or more storied. National attention and prestige are a given at each of those seven, and every recruit is within reach. An opportunity to coach one of those teams rarely arises. Since the in 1985, those programs have held a combined 16 coaching searches. Calipari, Indianas Tom Crean around for a while. Whoever UCLA hires should get at least three or four years. UNCs Roy Williams is 62, Krzyzewski is 66 and Boeheim is 68, so those jobs could open in the foreseeable future. That being said, each coach will be around for however long he wants. So the UCLA opening could be one of very few chances for Donovan. And what an opportunity it is, even compared to what he has now. UCLA won 10 championships before Florida even reached the NCAA Tournament. John Wooden and his Pyramid of Success came from UCLA. Donovan is already far and away the most successful coach in UFs history. UCLA produced Kareem AbdulJabbar, the NBAs all-time leading scorer. Joakim Noah and Al Horford may be the two best players UF has ever had. From 2003-2014, the state of Florida did not once produce more Rivals 150 recruits than California. The states tied once, in 2010. Overall, California produced 158 top-150 players against Floridas 98. Of course, the reason theres an opening at UCLA is the same reason the job may not be all that desirmaking seven NCAA Tournaments and three Final Fours in 10 years. Recruiting well enough to nab Shabazz Muhammad, the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2012, wasnt enough to save him. The standards are unreasonably high. If you dont win and win in entertaining fashion Bill Walton will lead a throng of people publicly trashing you. Fixing the recent dip in attendance might take more than a new coach. Still, the allure of such a legendary program has to be hard to deny. The coaching search that would ensue if Donovan left says a lot about the state of UFs program. Florida would probably target Alabama coach Anthony Grant, as coach the Orlando Magic in 2007. UF would likely have no shot at Shaka Smart or Brad Stevens. If Donovans replacement made a couple Final Fours and won a title, maybe Florida would be capable of hiring the next generations Stevens or Smart. Donovan is a good enough coach to permanently elevate the program to an elite level, but he cant do it alone. Becoming an elite program requires not just a buy-in from those within the program which he has but from the fans, too. Even after winning back-to-back titles, Donovan and the basketball program will always play second team any mind until after the Super Bowl. The OConnell Center was sold to about 85 percent capacity for Novembers marquee nonconference games against Marquette and Wisconsin, but in reality the building was no more than two-thirds full. Even in March, the football teams meaningless spring practices receive nearly equal coverage. Donovan doesnt strike me as a But anyone who takes his job seriously and strives to be successful values prestige, respect and, to some extent, recognition. If I were so lucky to write for the Gainesville Sun, Id leave in a heartbeat if offered a job at the L.A. Times. Even if I loved Gainesville and would be covering the same sport for the same wages. The Sun has a circulation of 215,000 and has won two Pulitzers. The Times has a circulation of 572,998 and has won 39 Pulitzers. Id want to work under that banner, with those people, in the place so many great writers have worked before. In the same way, youd rather play for the Lakers than the Magic. To perform in the Dolby Theatre rather than the Hippodrome. To curate at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art rather than the Harn Museum. Even if the UCLA job isnt right for Donovan, the point remains that certain jobs have more to offer than UF, especially as it applies to prestige and building a legacy. So could you really blame Donovan if he someday wanted to leave? Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Job openings raise question: Is there enough for Donovan at UF?

SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Contributing WriterVerna Groger believes cooking more meals at home can reduce her salt intake. And that, according to a new study, can only be good for her health. Results from the 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study were presented last week and stated over-consumption of salt contributed to 2.3 million deaths from cardiovascular diseases worldwide. In the United States, there were 429 deaths for every million adults. Groger, a registered dietician at the Gainesville Haven Hospice, said the abundance of processed food people eat causes them to take in more than 4,000 milligrams of sodium each day. The World Health Organizations recommended daily sodium intake is 2,000 milligrams. People are so used to the processed foods that are high in sodium, sugar and fat that our taste buds are acculturated, she said. The American Heart Association advises moderate consumption of the Salty Six: common foods high in sodium, including sandwiches, soups, cold cuts and cured meats, bread and rolls, pizza and poultry.

Chelsea Carnes, a 24-year-old UF history senior and music teacher at Studio Percussion, started the camp in Gainesville. After volunteering at the girls camps in Jacksonville and Orlando, I felt very inspired by the feeling of empowerment being given to girls. And having the instruments needed at Studio Percussion, I decided to start one here with some friends, said Carnes, the camps co-director. The theme is empowerment for girls. Its especially interesting that they are trying to pursue this sense of empowerment for girls through rock n roll, which is typically seen as masculine, said Kathy Keeter, a 21-year-old UF Spanish, political science and womens studies senior and vice president of external affairs of UFs Womens Student Association. The camp will run from Aug. 5 to Aug. 10 at Studio Percussion, 2512 NE First Blvd., Building 500, and is open to girls bethey will choose an instrument. During the camp, attendees will spend half the day learning the instrument, while they spend the other half in arts and crafts and womens history workshops. When the camp ends, the girls will put together a performance at the music venue 1982.

THE STUDY FOUND REGULAR USE OF ASPIRIN MAY REDUCE RISK. SOFIA RATTESAlligator Contributing WriterAn aspirin a day might keep skin cancer away. A new study comprised of about 60,000 postmenopausal women discovered that people who used aspirin on a regular basis were 21 percent less likely to be diagnosed with the deadliest form of skin cancer: melanoma. Aspirin is kind of a wondrous drug ing new uses for it, said Paul Doering, pharmacy professor at the UF College of Pharmacy, anywhere from protection against heart attacks, to protection against colon cancer. The list is a mile long of things that aspirin is allegedly good for. was linked to a 30 percent reduction in melanoma risk, according to a study published in the journal Cancer. However, Doering said there is a terrible temptation to associate what they found with a direct cause-and-effect relationship. He said this type of research is observational, where they dont actually administer drugs to people and watch them for a period of time to see what goes on with them. Saajan Patel, a 21-year-old UF College of Pharmacy graduate student, said participants need to be in a controlled environment. They cant sunbathe and take aspirin, assuming it will prevent skin cancer, he said. The study did not conclude aspirin is the cause of the decrease in cancer risk. It simply found regular use was associated with a drop in risk among Caucasian women who were studied. The study relied on self-reports of aspirin use. We have to be very careful to interpret, what does this really mean? Doering said. I think its way premature to suggest that all women out there ought to gobble down an aspirin every day to prevent skin cancer. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffA new study shows postmenopausal women who use aspirin regularly are 21 percent less likely to be diagnosed with melanoma.

However, in 1944, he died alone at Auschwitz, leaving underground magazine and more than 100 drawings and paintings. He was 16 years old, but some people believe he could have been the next Leonardo DaVinci.

UF partnered with Wake Forest University to produce co-director of the documentary. It will feature animations of Ginzs work. Its a different Holocaust story, he said.

Pop culture books often have a female protagonist who is completely normal, naive and naturally gorgeous. She is pretty, poised and perfect. look and act like is based on what we see. Women are more likely to be affected by advertising. Fifty percent of commercials aimed at girls speak about physical attractiveness, although none of the commercials aimed at boys refer to physical appearance. Seemingly, the most important trait a woman can have is her looks, even if these looks are unhealthy. The average woman in the U.S. is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. The average U.S. model is 5 feet 11 inches tall and only 117 pounds, according to The Eating Disorder Foundation. Most runway models meet the Body Mass Index physical criteria for anorexia. As a result of advertising and heavy preferences from the overestimate their body size. Victorias Secret models are classic examples. There are few women in the world who we all admire and love as much as them. Women want to be like them. Men want to be with them. Their existence is hard to deny, and we call them Angels. Everyone has their favorite the Aussie with the dimples or the dark-haired Brazilian babe? Angels are not Homo sapiens. They are a group thats members look very exotic, tall, thin, toned and perfectly curvy. Such perfection in one package is too good to be true. After discussions about Victorias Secret in advertising classes and some Googling of my own (like: Candice Swanepoel in real life and Adriana Lima without makeup), Ive reached the conclusion Victorias Setising department of Americas largest lingerie retailer. women are unreal, they do not believe us. These models are paid to look good for a living. They work out for hours with their personal trainers each day. They follow strict diets and eat meals prepared by their nutritionists. Their butts, breasts and faces are pounded with layers of makeup. Their bodies are slathered with lotion before a photoshoot, and their bras are push-ups, padded and stuffed with silicon inserts. Under direction from a handful of people, and with perfect lighting, they pose in the proper angle to emphasize their perfect bodies. Their images are then edited and airbrushed to have thinner thighs, smaller waists and more cleavage. Miranda Kerr is an A-cup, however, with plastic surgery via Photoshop, she looks like a plump C-cup, according to www.skinnyvscurvy.com. Selita Ebanks, another all about creating the illusion of this amazing body on the runway. People dont realize that there are about 20 layers of makeup on my butt alone. Everyone, more or less, knows models are unreal, and we have unrealistic expectations of ourselves. Yet we continue to aim to be as fake as they are. The media has created an image that, in actuality, doesnt exist at all. Even the models do not look like their pictures. Raksheen Ayaz is an advertising and business junior at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays.Secret Agent Woman: Obamas Secret Service pick is a smart oneThis week, President Barack Obama named the next diagencys history, a woman was picked. Lets give a round of applause to Julia Pierson, ladies and gents. Here are our top three reasons why putting a woman in charge of the Secret Service is a great idea: Remember last year, when several Secret Service agents on assignment in Colombia brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms? During the Colombia prostitution scandal, the Secret Service lost the trust of many Americans, and failed to live up to the high expectations placed on it. said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in an article by the Detroit Free Press. Ms. Pierson has a lot of work ahead of her to create a culture that respects the important job the agency is tasked with. I hope she succeeds in restoring lost credibility in the Secret Service. Were pretty sure she can get everyone back on track, even though I guess hiring hookers in foreign countries is like Americas third favorite pastime. Were great at keeping them, and were great at leaking them. If Pierson is just like every other woman ever, shell be great at Ms. Pierson got the job because of her 30 years of experience and because the leadership skills shes shown throughout her career at the United States Secret Service, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, in a report by USA Today. The fact that the reason she was chosen for the job. Like, no offense or anything, but its rare you hear a prominent person in the news who also happened to graduate from UCF. A report from The Daily Beast reads: Central Florida was with the Orlando Police Department, where of the Secret Service, turning in exemplary work and receiving a series of promotions that eventually took her to Washington. Shes hit every position on the way up to chief of staff, Paul Public Affairs, said when she was named chief of staff. He said it was absolutely amazing. Her rise is especially remarkable considering the macho culture that she was operating in and had to navigate. There you have it, everyone. We think we can all feel plenty secure in Obamas selection. Pierson appears to be a hard worker. Of course, we write this glowing editorial for her now, and who knows what strange past she might have that wont come to light until crass journalists get ahold of it. Until then, we have full faith in how Pierson will run things, and were excited to see how she does. Raksheen Ayazopinions@alligator.org

COURTNEY NACHLASAvenue Contributing WriterGhetto backgrounds, criminal records and drug history are some things associated with the rappers who dominate iPods across America. That is until a student from the University of Pennsylvania with a dream came along and changed the game. Steven Markowitz, 24, was once an average white, Jewish kid from Long Island until he became Americas sold-out rap star. Markowitz, known as Hoodie Allen, will perform his recent release, Crew Cuts, at High Dive Wednesday. Though many students may remember Hoodies Gainesville debut last September with Childish Gambino on Flavet Field, Hoodie will headline the event this time. underneath the hood, the Avenue talked to Markowitz about what it takes to make it. Q: What would you say are the differences in performing with Childish Gambino and performing with Aer? A: The main difference, I guess, is you know with the Childish show, I was obviously playing for a majority of people who had no idea who I was. I was just an opener on that show, which was awesome cause I got to get in front of so many people. But now, this is my tour and my fans, who know all the words, coming and showing up. Q: Why make your most recent release, Crew Cuts, free? A: Really, I just wanted to give back to all the fans who supported All American, cause I ever put anything up for sale, and the response was amazing. So, this is like my way of saying, Heres my next album. Its free; enjoy it. Q: What makes this album different from All American? A: I think the main difference is musicality. We really tried to make the sounds on Crew Cuts a little more diverse, a little more complicated. Overall, I feel like it has a little bit more heart and soul to it. Q: Whats your favorite song to perform from Crew Cuts? A: Two Lips (Featuring OCD Moosh and Twist). Q: dent enough to leave a secure lifestyle and pursue a music career? A: I wasnt 100 percent conof faith sort of one of those things where, when you know, like, that you want to do something and something is right, sometimes you have to go for it, even if you dont have [a] safety net to fall back on. Q: Who is on your iPod? A: Kanye, Kid Cudi, Drake. Q: Will you visit Alpha Epsilon Pi as an alumnus while youre here? A: I suppose anything is possible. Tell them to go get tickets, and if I feel the love during the show, Im sure Ill make an appearance. Q: All of the sorority girls want to know if youre single. Are you? A: Um, good question, sorority girls. But yeah, I have to let them down on that one. Even though Hoodie is taken, all of his tickets arent. Tickets to Hoodie Allen with opening act Aer are available at Hear Again Music, High Tides and www. ticketweb.com for $18 in advance and $21 the day of the show.

Main St. Dale Gunnoe, 38, director of Mass Visual Arts, said the theme is ambiguous to leave open interpretation. Gunnoe said people can expect different types of art, video and sound piece, from artists throughout the country, some professional and others amateur. Constance Humphries, 46, of Asheville, N.C., will eo displayed during the exhibition. The piece, which she created last year, explores the emotions people hide. Her feelings about her parents divorce inspired the video, she said. My work is very personal, she said. Thats usually where it starts. She said her work is abstract and doesnt tell a story. Margaret Ross Tolbert, of Gainesville, takes a different approach with her art. She said she wanted to show a narrative. Tolbert, who has participated in the event before, will display a painting and a video this year. She hopes the show gives her the opportunity to break into new circles. Im just excited to see what a lot of the artists come up with, she said.Underground art display surfaces Friday STEPHANIE BAGUIDYAvenue Contributing WriterHave you ever listened to your favorite bands album and wondered, Thats it? As a consumer, youre not the only one, and the music industry is feeling the consequences. The music industry could make about $450 million more than its already $2.6 billion in revenue if artists, managers and labels offered additional content to fans, according to a recent Nielsen study. SXSW surveyed 4,000 consumers for the study, which examined the degree to which fans are willing to connect with artists through exclusive merchandise like limited-edition signed posters, bonus tracks, T-shirts and handwritten lyric sheets. I think that the music industry is constantly changing because society is changing, said Lindsie Herring, a 20-year-old UF telecommunication junior and former intern at Country 103.7 the Gator. Fans are willing to pay for extras if given the opportunity, according to the study. Of the most-active music buyers, 53 percent said they would be willing to pay more for a favorite band while its recording a new album. Less-active buyers were predictably less likely to drop extra dough on music-related products. Even the group Nielsen calls Ambivalent Consumers, which are 22 percent of the population and spend an average of $73 a year on music, said they would buy unique material if given the opportunity. Director of programming for the College of Journalism and Communications, Jerry Butler, said technology such as the Internet is the reason for the change in the music industry. As a listener, as a consumer, we like to think that its all about us when in fact its still a business, Butler said.Behind the music: Arists could cash in on fangirlsThe industry is worth $2.6 billion

Jaterra lives for those situations; she is a When Jennifer made a champions play and got that offensive rebound and we had the last possession, I knew if Jaterra was going to have anything to do with it, this game Bonds remembered the pain from when Florida fell to Charlotte two years ago during her freshman season. She scored a gamehigh 23 points in the losing effort. Bonds came through again on Wednesday night. She led the Gators with 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting while adding four assists, three rebounds and two steals. As soon as I found out that we played Charlotte, I immediately thought about our 17-point lead (in the 2010-11 matchup), and Bonds said. It was in the back of my mind throughout the whole game. I didnt want Charlotte battled back midway through the second. George, who averaged just 4.5 points in WNIT wins against Florida International and Winthrop, played her best 20 minutes of basketball prior to halftime.

Floridas potential 10th straight victory against rival Florida State was on the line. Little watched two pitches go by before launching a 1-1 offering over the Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium scoreboard to win the game 7-3 for No. 3 Florida (32-3, 7-2 Southeastern Conference) in front of a record crowd of 2,443. The homer was Littles sixth of the season and her third career grand slam. I saw it off the bat, said. Usually you trot; I Littles trip around the diamond wasnt planned. Extra innings were unexpected. The Gators had trouble getting the bat on nings, and it came on a passed ball. When UF did get runners on base, batters could do nothing against FSU starter Lacey Waldrops off-speed pitches. Florida loaded the bases in the sixth after Kelsey Horton reached base on a throwing error by Florida State third baseman Courtney Senas. Stephanie Tofft walked and Taylor Schwarz was hit by a pitch, but Ensley Gammel and Bailey Castro both struck out to end the inning and Floridas momentum. Freshmen Kelsey Stewart and Kirsti Merritt went down in short order to begin the seventh, and it looked like the Gators winning streak would come to an end. Haeger and Little drew walks, bringing Horton to the plate.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffJunior Hannah Rogers pitches during Floridas 7-3 win against FSU on Wednesday at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. END OF GREGULATION Billy Donovan probably isnt going anywhere. But he has to at least think about the opening at UCLA, right? The reasons he wont leave are fairly obvious. According to USA Today, his total pay of $3,639,800 for the 2011-12 season ranked behind only Kentuckys John Calipari, Louisvilles Rick Pitino and Dukes Mike Krzyzewski. Donovan has had nothing but glowing things to say about living in Gainesville. His oldest son, Billy, plays for UF and will be eligible through 2014. His youngest son, Connor, is still a few years away from high school. His 72-year-old father, William, coaches the seventh and eighth grade basketball team at Gainesvilles Queen of Peace Academy. The UF practice facility underwent a $1.8 million renovation in Sept. 2007. Athletics Director Jeremy Foley has shown a commitment to winning and building a successful program. Very few coaches have ever won a national championship, let alone two, at one school before choosing to leave for as an assistant at Kentucky, so UK would make sense as his dream job. But, when the position opened in 2007 and 2009, Donovan publicly shot down the rumors. The job of Floridas mens basketball coach is a great one, especially for Billy Donovan. But Donovan is in his 17th season at Florida. Hes only 47 years old, so he could easily have another 20 years left. Do we really expect that hell be the coach at UF for 37 seasons? Jim Boeheim, the longest-tenured coach in the NCAA, is about Krzyzewski is in his 33rd season. Judging by their success, lengthy tenures arent unreasonable. But coaching at Syracuse or Duke is different from coaching at Florida. Trying to rank the most desirable jobs in college basketball would do little more than make people angry, but theres a pretty solid top tier. In alphabetical order: Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Syracuse and UCLA. You can make arguments for a few others, but there arent any false positives on that list. Those programs have all won at least 1,700 games. Florida has won 1,293. With the exception of Duke, which plays at historic Cameron Indoor, each programs stadium holds more fans than the OConnell Center. With all due respect to the ODome, each is considerably nicer and/or more storied. National attention and prestige are a given at each of those seven, and every recruit is within reach. An opportunity to coach one of those teams rarely arises. Since the in 1985, those programs have held a combined 16 coaching searches. Calipari, Indianas Tom Crean around for a while. Whoever UCLA hires should get at least three or four years. UNCs Roy Williams is 62, Krzyzewski is 66 and Boeheim is 68, so those jobs could open in the foreseeable future. That being said, each coach will be around for however long he wants. So the UCLA opening could be one of very few chances for Donovan. And what an opportunity it is, even compared to what he has now. UCLA won 10 championships before Florida even reached the NCAA Tournament. John Wooden and his Pyramid of Success came from UCLA. Donovan is already far and away the most successful coach in UFs history. UCLA produced Kareem AbdulJabbar, the NBAs all-time leading scorer. Joakim Noah and Al Horford may be the two best players UF has ever had. From 2003-2014, the state of Florida did not once produce more Rivals 150 recruits than California. The states tied once, in 2010. Overall, California produced 158 top-150 players against Floridas 98. Of course, the reason theres an opening at UCLA is the same reason the job may not be all that desirmaking seven NCAA Tournaments and three Final Fours in 10 years. Recruiting well enough to nab Shabazz Muhammad, the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2012, wasnt enough to save him. The standards are unreasonably high. If you dont win and win in entertaining fashion Bill Walton will lead a throng of people publicly trashing you. Fixing the recent dip in attendance might take more than a new coach. Still, the allure of such a legendary program has to be hard to deny. The coaching search that would ensue if Donovan left says a lot about the state of UFs program. Florida would probably target Alabama coach Anthony Grant, as coach the Orlando Magic in 2007. UF would likely have no shot at Shaka Smart or Brad Stevens. If Donovans replacement made a couple Final Fours and won a title, maybe Florida would be capable of hiring the next generations Stevens or Smart. Donovan is a good enough coach to permanently elevate the program to an elite level, but he cant do it alone. Becoming an elite program requires not just a buy-in from those within the program which he has but from the fans, too. Even after winning back-to-back titles, Donovan and the basketball program will always play second team any mind until after the Super Bowl. The OConnell Center was sold to about 85 percent capacity for Novembers marquee nonconference games against Marquette and Wisconsin, but in reality the building was no more than two-thirds full. Even in March, the football teams meaningless spring practices receive nearly equal coverage. Donovan doesnt strike me as a But anyone who takes his job seriously and strives to be successful values prestige, respect and, to some extent, recognition. If I were so lucky to write for the Gainesville Sun, Id leave in a heartbeat if offered a job at the L.A. Times. Even if I loved Gainesville and would be covering the same sport for the same wages. The Sun has a circulation of 215,000 and has won two Pulitzers. The Times has a circulation of 572,998 and has won 39 Pulitzers. Id want to work under that banner, with those people, in the place so many great writers have worked before. In the same way, youd rather play for the Lakers than the Magic. To perform in the Dolby Theatre rather than the Hippodrome. To curate at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art rather than the Harn Museum. Even if the UCLA job isnt right for Donovan, the point remains that certain jobs have more to offer than UF, especially as it applies to prestige and building a legacy. So could you really blame Donovan if he someday wanted to leave? Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Job openings raise question: Is there enough for Donovan at UF?
