Cashew is one of six large tortoises on display in the enclosure. A 4-foot glass wall separates visitors from the creatures. Enzler said the notion of a stolen tortoise grabbed national attention. The idea that someone may steal a tortoise was so disturbing, and I think people responded to that, he said. Hes just glad the tortoise is in good health, and he said staff is reviewing the enclosures. It has good karma to know Cashew wasnt stolen and someone didnt violate the museum and its exhibit, he said. I think it restores our faith in humanity to know someone didnt take the animal.

MONDAY, APRIL 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 April 11, 1972 After a misinformed ad promoting water beds in residence halls ran in the Alligator, Director of Housing James Hennessey said he neither approved nor disapproved of water beds for students living in the halls. But he did say students had to get approval from the resident directors if they wanted one. Students also had to sign a waiver claiming responsibility for any damage. April 8, 1981 Gainesville city commissioners approved the subsidization of a private trolley bus company to operate in the city alongside the Regional Transit System buses. The red, open-air trolleys were to join the ranks in June with routes going from downtown to campus. The city estimated the trolley line would bring in about $3,400 in fares a month. April 8, 1996 An art piece gone wrong ended with a UF student receiving charges of animal cruelty. Vince Gothard dropped more than 30 live mice in hot polyester resin. Gothards attorney said whether the mice were alive or dead didnt matter, as cruelty was not a part of his creative process. He had not been arrested at the time but faced a third-degree felony. April 8, 2003 Students wanting to say hello to their friend or just let out their inner child on pavement were out of luck, as the Board of Trustees passed a policy to ban chalked messages on the majority of UFs campus. The only exception to the rule was chalk on the South Terrace of the Reitz Union. Chalking hadnt been allowed before, but the rule was ignored.

UF MUST RAISE ABOUT $50,000 TO BRING LEADERS. JACLYN ROSENAlligator Contributing WriterNot everyone relives all the things from childhood, but UF students are determined to bring RECESS to campus next fall. RECESS is a touring music festival featuring an entrepreneur speaker session and startup company career fair. The event is like South by Southwest for college students, Jack Shannon, the companys co-founder said. UF is currently in second place in RECESS competition to bring the festival to universities nationwide. Scott Lombardo, a 23-year-old law and business administration graduate student, is working with his fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, and UF Innovators to raise the funds for the event, which would be in September. He said UF must raise about $50,000 to bring some of the nations top business leaders to speak to students in the entrepreneurial speaker session. Were working with local Gainesville startups to do that and start a crowd funding campaign to reach out to interested parties, Lombardo said.

4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, APRIL 8, 2013Sarah Kinonen / Alligator StaffA.J. Sontag, 70, of Bradford County, peers in at Sawyer, his newly adopted 9-month-old domestic short-haired tabby cat, during Spring Fling, a two-day adoption event at Alachua County Animal Services. SARAH KINONENAlligator Staff WriterSawyer peered through the holes of his kennel Saturday at his new family with what looked like a smile. In just a few days, the 9-monthold domestic short-haired tabby cat would be home with his newly adopted parents, April and A.J. Sontag, of Bradford County. Like Sawyer, 11 other cats and dogs found homes during the Alachua County Animal Services Spring Fling, a two-day pet adoption event held Friday and Saturday. Although the Sontags werent exas soon as they arrived, once they met Sawyer, they adopted him in a matter of minutes. We kept asking ourselves, Are we sure we want to do this? A.J. Sontag, 70, said. Then we realized Train, our other cat, needs a companion. The goal of the two-day event was to get as many animals into new homes as possible, said Hilary Hynes, Alachua County Animal Services public education program coordinator. We wanted to improve the stray cat adoption, she said, and of course, we never have an event without the option of adopting the dogs. Prices for adopting both cats and dogs varied. While some cats and dogs were adopted free of charge, the event adoption prices were $33 for cats and $45 for dogs. Since April 2, a total of 34 animals have been adopted from the shelter. Hynes said because the shelter would like to see animals adopted daily, the event adoption prices will apply until April 10. We dont want people to wait until an event, she said. We want people to check out the animals every day.

Gainesville women have been at the forefront of the campaign, with the Gainesville chapter of the Womens Liberation sending members to testify in front of the FDA. National Womens Liberation founder Candi Churchill said she, Seguin and other plaintiffs pointed out the morning-after pill is available over the counter in 63 other countries and shared their experiences with it. I really resent having spent 10 years of my life organizing to get my government to make something accessible that is perfectly safe, Churchill said. The 1998 UF alumna has been protesting for the accessibility of the pill sulting that she was patronized at the lief, Churchill and other members of the Gainesville chapter took action. In fying, past efforts have included Give Your Friends the Morning After Pill, in which they illegally gave the pill to women in need when it was prescription-only. I think we made a big impact, Churchill said. Were a small town, and were ordinary women, but weve studied the issue and looked at our own experiences. Andrea Costello, the attorney representing the National Womens Liberation, said its a landmark victory for females in the United States. This case really shows that when you combine really powerful grassroots organizing and women demanding our rights with really good legal arguments, you get a recipe for justice, she said. PLAN B, from page 1 HANNA MARCUSAlligator Contributing WriterBiting into a science experiment may not sound all that appetizing, but Hannah Gavin said she wouldnt mind giving it a taste test. Synthetic meat, also known as vitro meat or cultured meat, is a genetically engineered animal ence world. The twist: The meat has never been part of a living animal. Although it isnt currently in production, experts like Gabor Forgacs, a biological physicist and a professor at the University of Missouri, have successfully created synthetic meat. During a 2011 TEDMED event, Forgacs discould help reduce food shortages and cut down on resources used to raise animals for meat. He also cooked and ate his own synthetic meat on stage. of synthetic meat, they say the resources needed to commercially produce it are far from available. Keith Schneider, a UF food science and human nutrition associate professor, said synthetic meat is more of a science experiment than a current production product. Its more of a pie-in-thesky type of thing, where just because they can do something doesnt mean it will ever be done commercially, he said. It looks interesting, but its one of those things that doesnt really mean its going to happen. While Gavin, a 21-year-old UF aerospace engineering junior, said synthetic meat sounds like up for trying it.Fake meat not just for vegansLOC AL MEGHAN PRYCEAlligator Contributing WriterEvery year, Norma Nickerson attends the Santa Fe College Spring Arts Festival with an interest in how the artists create their masterpieces. Nickerson was one of about 110,000 people who attended the 44th annual festival, which featured pieces by artists from Florida and around the world as well as food and live music. Kathryn Lehman, coordinator of cultural programs at SFC, said this years festival was dedicated to Lennie Kesl, a former faculty member at SFC and a member of the Gainesville art community, who died in November. The festival held a jazz concert in his honor and reprinted Kesls previous Spring Arts posters. The most important thing is the weather and the artists, and theyre both beautiful, Lehman said. Ummarid Eitharong, a 60-year-old professional artist from Orlando, said his art has been featured in the festival for more than 10 years. Saturday, Eitharong received an award of excellence for his mixed-media paintings. Eitharong said he enjoys showcasing his work at the festival because hes proud to be part of Gainesvilles art community. Its a give and take between the artists and community, he said.

ALYSSA NIEVESAlligator Contributing WriterHammaad Saber relived his elementary school glory days Sunday afternoon. I felt like a 5-year-old in a 19-year-old body, said the UF industrial and systems engineering freshman. He was named hopscotch champion at the Hopping 4 A Cure tournament. About 100 students attended the event, hosted by Freshman Leadership Outreach at the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex. Hopping 4 A Cures co-founder David Nassau said the event raised about $1,000 to fund multiple sclerosis research and scholarships for students who have been either directly or indirectly affected by the condition. Nassau, an 18-year-old UF marketing freshman, said this event was inspired by a high school joke, when he and a friend said varsity hopscotch team. Our peers became really excited about it, so we decided to make an event out of this and raise the money for charity, Nassau said. He chose the National Multiple Sclerosis Society because his father has the condition. Michael Nassau, Davids 24-year-old drove from South Florida to show his suphe is making about their father. I respect my brother tremendously, Michael Nassau said. Even though he is younger than me, I have always looked up to him.

NICOLE GERMANYAlligator Contributing WriterUF adjunct professor and photographer Jeremiah Stanley and his wife, Meredith, are preparing to go to Greece to capThe more we researched and learned, the more it started to change us as people, he said. We felt like we had to do something. After brainstorming ideas, the two decided a portrait project would be a good way to document the slavery and help spread the message. They set up a page on www.USAprojects.org with a goal of $15,000. The money will help pay for travel expenses, food and equipment. As of press time, about $5,000 had been raised. Jeremiah Stanley said they picked Greece because its known as the gateway team, which also includes their assistant, Sierra Clemons, plans to be gone for about a month. Its really hard for them to talk about week, we may not even take a picture because we dont want to make victims feel any more exploited than they already are. Meredith Stanley said she hopes the victims will realize that by standing up and showing their faces, theyll be able to make a difference in educating people. Upon the completion of the trip to Greece, the photographs will be on display at Anthem Church in Gainesville.UF teacher captures sex COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterMonika Oli doesnt let the learning curve slow her down. Oli, a UF microbiology and cell science professor, was honored as UF Teacher of the Year at a ceremony held at the presidents house last week. She said she didnt expect to win because of the heavy competition. Theres so many people, so many faculty, so many great teachers on campus that it was quite a surprise, she said. Oli began teaching at UF in Spring 2011. She is credited with revamping the microbiology curriculum. Microbiology and cell science chairman Eric Triplett said he counted on Oli to modernize and organize the departments lab system. Its a big job, he said. She works countless hours and puts a lot of thought and creativity. Yordanis Diez, a 23-year-old UF microbiology and cell science senior, has been Olis teaching assistant for four semesters. He wrote a recommendation letter for her application. She loves what she does, he said. It could not have happened to a better professor. Oli said her education from Germany, Scotland and the U.S., and her outside work experience set her apart from the competition. She is thankful for the teachers who helped her succeed. Once you feel how it feels to be inspired by somebody, I think, only then, you can give it back, she said.

Todays question: Have you ever taken Plan B? People, please stop stealing free stuffWednesday night, a speaker came to the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and delivered what was an enthralling, interesting and appropriately comedic speech I will likely not forget. For those of you who dont know or who are possibly just extremely good at avoiding the 200,000 bulletins around campus that screamed for attention worse than your old high school friend who used to tell you all about his made-up recording contract and girlfriend from Cali, Neil deGrasse Tyson is indeed the person to whom I am referring. This event, put on by the wonderful (or at least now I consider them so because they brought Tyson to UF) Accent Speakers Bureau, was something I thoroughly enjoyed, and I am quite positive every other individual there did as well. From asteroids to laxatives, it seems Tyson said all that ever needed to be said in a single talk. The talk was very important to me, but thats not what I want to highlight. I want to highlight an incredible indecency that stood out even among the great beauty of that night. I understand there are plenty of students who dont give one piss about this man or what he had to say, but the amount of students who waited in line to get two tickets just to turn them around and try to scalp them is beyond belief. You people were scalping free tickets, and most of you were asking $100 for free tickets! Whether its been said to you or not, I hope you realize that if you tried to scalp free tickets, then you are quite possibly one of the most repulsive and just incredibly aggrahave to put in a little bit of effort to make their money). These tickets sold out in about 30 minutes. Poof, and they were gone. Some people wanted to blame Accent for booking the Phillips Center or how they let people get two tickets. But lets understand here, people: Accent is not the one at fault. The problem here is the abundance of sad students whose integrity is literally worth about $100. Accent, by the way, did a stand-up job of getting word out about the show, which included creating an event on cial, amirite). Can you guess what the Internet decided was the most logical use for that page after the tickets were handed out? What is scalping, Alex? is the only acceptable answer. I guess Id also technically have to accept, What are a-holes being a--holes? up tickets and then three hours later posted saying, Ugh, it turns out I cant go to the show anymore, so if you want to buy my tickets, message me. Is that so? You were certain you could attend a show the very next night until three hours after you got your free tickets? Im not sure whos worse though, these people or just the blunt, Two tickets $100 each. Who wants them? Luckily I had a ticket and didnt want Lt. Cool Guys ticket. Although I was kind of curious as to where he got his tight, Greek-letter adorned tank top because I would have traded him my ticket for one of those for sure. I could go on and on about how ridiculous the whole situation was, but the saddest thing about it was it did not surprise me. Not even a little. Mans indecency to man struck once again. To badly paraphrase Tyson (and I apologize in advance, Neil, if this gets you a bad rap), Just be a decent human being, you jacka--, and live life to the fullest. Dallin Kelson is an English senior at UF. His column runs on Mondays.Ghost of Chavez:Maduro threatens voters with curse Hey, are curses real? Just checking for the people of Venezuela. Nicolas Maduro, the acting president of Venezuela since Hugo Chavez died last month, has been invoking a centuries-old curse upon those who dont vote for him in next weeks elections. If anyone among the people votes against Nicolas Maduro, he is voting against himself, and the curse of Maracapana is falling on him, Maduro said recently at a political rally, according to an article by BBC News. If the bourgeoisie win, they are going to privatise health and education, they are going to take land from the Indians, the curse of Maracapana would come on you, he continued. What Maduro was referring to was a 16th century battle a massacre, actually fought between the Spanish and the indigenous people of Venezuela. However, there isnt a clear story about a curse involved in the incident. It was a massacre, and thats about all we know about it. One of the only references to the curse is on a website called Faustas Blog, so were just as skeptical as you about the validity of the information. Seeing as there are so few details out there about this event, were trusting Fausta. [B]ack to the curse, Im not sure what the hey hes talking about, either, Fausta wrote. The battle of Maracapana took place in 1567, when the Spanish army massacred thousands of indians. Unlike the legends around King Tut, there have been bourgeoisie is the curse. Which makes sense if youre a Communist. Whatever. The website she refers to is a Spanish news site that also covered Maduros speech at the rally. Either way, we suppose the history about the curse. Its bizarre. The race took a somewhat surreal turn on Saturday when Maduro said a centuries-old curse would fall on the heads of those who do not vote for him, said a report from Reuters. Yeah. Could you imagine a U.S. presidential candidate cursing the supporters of their opponent with a centuries-old indigenous curse? [Henrique] Capriles, who is predicting a late pro-opposition surge as sympathy wears off after Chavezs death, is vowing to install a Brazilian-style administration of free-market economics with strong social welfare policies, continued the report. curse can fall on them, has no right to govern this country, he said at a rally in the western state of Tachira, reported the BBC that little group that we are going to get rid of on April 14. Were not sure if Maduro running under a campaign that is pitching him as the next Chavez is the best thing for him; hes clearly threatened by his opposition if hes using curses as a bargaining chip. Itll be interesting to see who wins Venezuelas upcoming election. Dallin Kelson opinions@alligator.org

MONDAY, APRIL 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Misconceptions about the UFApps service in April 5 articleAn article published in the April 5 issue of the Alligator contained some misinformation about the UFApps service. On behalf of UF Information Technology, I would like to clarify these issues. 1. UFApps does not mean free software. UFApps is a pilot service funded by the Student Technology Fee and administered by UFIT. The university negotiates software agreements to cover usage in classrooms, labs and administrative units. Software available through UFApps is licensed and provided for use in a virtual environment. UFApps. No technical problems have been reported with any applications. UFApps provides students access to licensed software from almost any computing device anywhere theres an Internet connection. Student feedback about UFApps has been overwhelmingly positive. 3. UFs Adobe license UFIT has written permission from Adobe to include their applications in UFApps, which were initially available when the service launched March 12. Subsequent to launch, Adobe raised some licensing questions for discussion. As a gesture of good faith toward those discussions, UFIT removed the Adobe applications from UFApps. Our discussions with Adobe are positive and ongoing. We hope to have the issue resolved shortly. The reporter stated that, due to the unavailability of Adobe via UFApps, students are resorting to older version of the programs and cracked software to complete their assignments. This is an excellent opportunity to remind students that lawful use of software, media and all intellectual property is a core value of our university. Improperly acquired or unlicensed software puts you at legal risk. For more information, I encourage students to read the universitys Acceptable Use Policy. Microsoft OneNote and InfoPath 2010 have been added since UFApps launch last month. We look forward to expanding and enhancing this student pilot. Fedro Zazueta associate chief information officer and director of Academic TechnologyLetter to the Editor At the end of last month, an oil pipeline ruptured in central Arkansas. According to CNN, 12,000 barrels of oil spilled into the state. Homes were evacuated, and resiThe culprit behind this lack of pipe maintenance is none other than the infamous ExxonMobil. Put yourself in the shoes of one of the victims of this acciyour streets and home. The most frustrating part of the spill is the response of the government. Government leaders, the ones who pledge to uphold liberty, are often stunningly uncaring when it comes addressing the errors of oil companies, and this is no exception. Exxon wont have to pay a penny toward the fund used to clean up oil spills because the black rivers arent technically oil. This is because, according to the Internal Revenue Service, tar sands are not the same as conventional oil. Despite this, Exxon said it will do its best to take care of everything. According to RT news, Alan Jeffers, Exxon media relations manager, said Exxon is paying all valid claims relating to the spill and providing interim housing for people from the ated following Fridays spill. That sounds awfully responsible. It also sounded responsible when Exxon promised to make safety a priority after the Valdez incident years ago. That incident would have originally $500 million in court. I wonder what Exxon will consider to be valid claims this time. The Arkansas attorney general was repeatedly told by Exxon that inspections were up to date and showed no cause for concern, according to an NPR article. Look at how that turned out, though. According to one article, the nations pipelines on The relationship our country has with oil is a strange one. We see it as essential to our daily lives. Our food, transportation and even our plastics all depend somehow on oil. And yet, most of us recognize the harm oil can do to the environment. Oil can be very toxic. Spills can cause widespread harm to wildlife and commerce, and using oil as fuel releases greenhouse gases. Some places, like cities, are even built with the expectation travel will primarily take place in a car. Not only are roads inaccessible to other vehicles, but the cities are built so far spread out that its hardly feasible to even live in such a place without a car. We all need to get from place to place. Yet, it seems impossible to give up oil. What could be the solution? We must admit to ourselves we are truly doing a moral wrong when we use oil. We have to remind ourselves what were doing can hurt us. The next step, I think, is to try to wean ourselves off oil. The less we use, the better. Carpooling is better than driving alone, busing is better than carpooling and biking is even better. If more people bike, roads will be much safer for bikes. If youre really ambitious, look into converting your car into a completely electric car. Think of where your food is produced and how its transported. Think of how much money we can save, as a country, if we would stop with these oil wars. No in the sand. Most of all, think of what would happen if we all really wanted clean energy if we really invested our time, money at extracting energy, we would actually greet hurricanes with open arms! We just have to do it. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF.

Download on iTunes or listen online at alligatorSports.org. PHIL HEILMAN Alligator Staff Writer Matt Jones has staked his claim to Floridas starting tailback spot. After being used sparingly behind Mike Gillislee last season, he used a productive spring to distance himself from freshman Kelvin Taylor and junior Mack Brown. Jones was so Floridas 14 spring practices that coach Will Muschamp was economic with the sophomore during the Gators spring game on Saturday, opting instead to take a closer look at Brown and Taylor, as well as walk-on Mark Herndon. Matt didnt do a whole lot today, and that was by design, Muschamp said. We wanted to get Kelvin and Mack and Mark some touches. Matts had a really outstanding spring. We have a good comfort level of where he is as a player. Given the number of injuries Florida has dealt with along the offensive line, the Gators sprinkled in multiple drills in addition to six scrimmage periods on Saturday. Jones was a light participant in the drills the 6-foot-2 sophomore did not see much work. I had a strong spring, and also they wanted to get some of the young guys a lot of reps, Jones said. They kind of took it easy on me today. Taylor responded well in his debut at carried the ball 11 times for 59 yards and a touchdown, while also adding a 3-yard Ryan Jones / Alligator Staff Stadium. The event marked the end of Floridas spring practice. The Gators spring game on Saturday was boring. Trust me. I know. I had to be there. Most fans went to Saturdays game with reasonable expectations. But an irate few were upset after watching just a regular old practice on Saturday in The Swamp. Several aired their grievances via social media. What? Did the lack of an ultimately meaningless football game bother you? You had plenty of advance warning. the possibility of a format change to the Orange and Blue Debut on March 26 11 days before the game. It may be more of a practice-like atmosphere for what were going to do, he said. Since only six Florida offensive linemen were healthy enough to practice, Muschamp decided not to make six guys man the offensive lines of both the Orange and Blue teams. That would mean 70 snaps in the Gainesville heat for six guys who have to hit somebody on every play. If I were in Muschamps shoes, I would have made the same decision. So not only did Muschamp make a perfectly rational decision, but he gave fair warning. enough, Muschamp decided to make it game. Its not fair to go in a spring game situation and ask [the offensive linemen] to take 60, 70 snaps in a row, Muschamp said Tuesday. Thats not healthy. Its not good. Its not good for our football team. Theres your second warning.

With only six healthy offensive linemen, the Gators could not even attempt a typical spring game. Instead, the Orange and Blue Debut was Floridas that. During the six 11-on-11 scrimmage periods that separated individual drills, quarterback Jeff Driskel struggled. He consistently waited through would-be sacks a red non-contact jersey bought him extra time but rarely found an open man. UF also dealt with drops and bad snaps as the defense seemed to get the better of the offense from There were a lot of sloppy parts, center Jonotthan Harrison said. We werent seeing much of the mental errors or anything during all of these practices. But it couldve been from people already being done with spring ball. That the offense would be looking to simply escape is understandable. While receivers Quinton Dunbar and Demarcus contact on Saturday. Dunbar has a shoulder injury, while Robinson has been playing through a left ankle Florida concludes spring work with open practice
