A total of 10 locations including the Fresh Food Company, Gator Corner Dining Center, Moes Southwest Grill, Pollo Tropical, Papa Johns, Burger King, Chomp It, Croutons, Home Zone and the Camellia Court Caf will accept residential, commuter, and faculty and staff meal plans, Marketing Program Manager for Gator Dining Services Jill Rodriguez wrote in an email. Based on the positive feedback we received when we added Moes Southwest Grill and Chomp It, we decided to add more locations for added value and convenience for meal plan participants, she said. Rodriguez said meal plans can be redeemed one lunch a Pollo Tropical, Papa Johns, Croutons, Home Zone, Camellia Court Caf and Chomp It. One dinner a day can be redeemed four days per excluding the Camellia Court Caf. She said the plan also allows for one meal for dinner daily after 4 p.m. at Burger King or Moes Southwest Grill. Spencer Smud, a 22-yearold UF recreation programming senior, said students will take advantage of the expansion. He particularly likes Pollo Tropical. I feel that a lot of students do end up passing by the Reitz, but now that theyve made more commercialized eateries included, itll attract more people to the meal plan, he said. The seven-day open access meal plan for Fall costs $1,896, according to the Gator day open access meal plan for Fall costs $1,887.

(AP Photo/MetroWest Daily News, Ken McGagh) JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff Writer the Boston Marathon on Monday killed three people and injured about 150 but local participants were not among them. As far as we know, all of the runners from Gainesville are safe and accounted for, said Meredith DeFranco, a doctor of physical therapy at Shands at UF Marathon about an hour before the bombs went off. Twenty Gainesville residents were among the about 27,000 people registered for the race, according to the 2013 Boston Marathon website. The blasts occurred at about 2:45 p.m., scattering screaming runners and spectators. Buildings shook; windows broke. Bright bloodstains on the sidewalk emerged as the smoke cleared. UF public relations alumna Michaela Trimble, now a global marketing communications and advertising graduate student at Emerson College, said her entire explosion. Then I heard the second one, she said. And then, I heard people screaming. Trimble watched as customers evacuated from bars and restaurants. The streets were chaotic. The scene looked unreal to Michelle Adams, who had turned on the television after getting out of her hotel rooms shower. I thought it was a movie, the Gainesville Health and Fitness Center personal trainer wrote in an email. I had just come through there, and that was not what it looked like. Authorities dubbed the incident a terrorist attack as the day wore on.

When they heard, Lets go! they took off smiling. Team Florida, a UF student-run cycling club, led a 15-mile memorial bike ride celebrating Michael R. Edmonds Jr., a UF student who took his life and fell from Ben Hill Edmonds, 26, came to UF in 2011 as a journalism major, and struggled with depression and bipolar disorder. Neal Shepherd, a 19-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior and Team Florida vice president, said the ride brought back memories of a previous race he participated in shortly after Edmonds death. Last year, Shepherd learned about the news a week before the Collegiate Individual Omnium Conference Championships. Shepherd won a medal at the race and buried it with Edmonds ashes. He was talking about conference for the longest time, and it was devastating to not have him there, Shepherd said. I felt it was important to give him a piece of what he missed.

Bostonians and visitors alike were shocked, stunned and sad, said UF biological scientist Mark Ou. Its just incredibly sad that people get hurt on such a day when people are celebrating, he said. Former Gators cross country runners Jeremy Criscione and Matt Hensley and their families were OK, wrote University Athletic Association spokeswoman Amanda Brooks in an email. She said they were the only Gator athletes who she knew participated in the marathon. It was very tragic, Hensley wrote in a Facebook message. My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family that were in the area. Despite the hotel lockdowns, uncertainty of Floridaing, the Gators and Gainesville residents remained hopeful.

Gainesville House of Beer hosted an additional fundraiser after the ride, donating a dollar for every beer purchased. Chelsea Factor, a 22-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior who organized the memorial ride, said she chose the location because she had visited the bar with Edmonds and the team a few times. Last year, Edmonds sister, Karen, led the memorial ride. This year, she ran the Boston Marathon in honor of her brother. She taped a picture of them on her race bib and posted it on Facebook with the words, Im running for you today, brother bear. A few hours later, two bombs Michael and Karens uncle, Steven Warren, announced in tears at the memorial that Karen was safe hours, 16 minutes and 59 seconds. Tony Delisle, who taught Edmonds personal and family health class last year, spoke to the riders before they took off. I knew Mike as a student, but he quickly became my teacher because he wore his heart on his sleeve, was unafraid about showing his emotions he never hesitated to give a second of his time to someone in need, he said. I am very sad of his passing, and a tear to my eye is never that far away when I think about him. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 2013Javier Edwards / AlligatorUF professor Tony Delisle embraces Michael Edmonds Sr. at the 15-mile Mike Edmonds Memorial Bike Ride in memory of Michael Edmonds Jr. House of Beer fundraised for the memorial MEMORIAL, from page 1 BOSTON, from page 1 Gators are shocked ANIMALS CAN BE BROUGHT TO 2142 SHEALY DRIVE.

It is an alternative to turning something loose with no questions asked, said Steve Johnson, an associate professor of wildlife ecology with UFs Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. The department is hosting the event in collaboration with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Straughn IFAS Extension Professional Development Center located on 2142 Shealy Drive. Johnson said when some people get rid of their pets, they release their animals into the wild, causing an increase in nonnative animals in Florida. Some of these animals have negative effects on the environment, he said. Several species in the past have caused a decline in other animal populations. Last year, 297 animals such as lizards, snakes and turtles were turned it to the FWC at Exotic Pet Amnesty Day events, said Diane Hirth, FWC habitat and species conservation communications coordinator. Normally, what we receive are animals that are not commonly sold in pet stores and not very expensive, she said. Johnson said the department will also be having educational outreach tables at the Reitz Union on the same day, where students can learn more about how to be responsible pet owners.

This is in response to the sold-out Neil deGrasse Tyson show earlier this month, said Holtzman, a 22-year-old UF political science and history senior. Im excited, he said. Its going to be hilarious. Silverman was chosen because she is a controversial, entertaining comedian who is an outspoken advocate for gay rights, Holtzman said. Jessie Pincus, executive director for Pride Awareness Month, said having Silverman come to UF is an honor.

The hybrid battery power really helps us to increase fuel said. Skinner said these buses are similar to hybrid systems in passenger cars because they switch to an energy-saving idle mode until demand for the gas engine is increased. Much like a passenger hybrid car, you dont see as much of a fuel savings at higher speeds because the electric engine isnt On campus, its more stop-anda greater fuel savings in the long Both types of buses are 40 feet long and hold 72 passengers. However, they differ in miles per gallon and cost. Skinner said the current biodiesel buses get about four to six miles per gallon. The hybrid buses get about 15 percent to 20 percent better gas mileage than their non-hybrid counterparts. The second difference is the price tag. RTS regular biodiesel buses cost $400,000, and each hybrid bus costs $600,000. The addition of these ecofriendly buses has piqued interest in students on the UF campus. Ive ridden it several times and prefer it over the regular advertising senior Qitan Huang.

Roomie retrospective: dont fear the randomAs the end of the semester rolls around, everyone seems to be getting serious cabin fever about their living situations. People moving from residence halls to apartments say, I cant wait until I have my own bathroom! People moving from old roommates to new roommates say, I cant wait until Im not woken up by her hair dryer at 8 in the morning! Lets give ourselves some credit. Sharing living space with people is a wild adventure of innumerable outcomes, and it can be a hard thing to learn straight off the bat. We go straight from 18 years of living with our loving family into a contractual-style agreement with someone we may or may not have known before, then we walk into the room that will be our home for the next nine months. That is a pretty big jump, so what happens from there on out is anyones guess. In a school of more than 50,000 people, if someone compiled all of the stories UF students had to say about their roommates, I bet it would be a pretty zany saga of the good, the bad and the crazy. So, for another year of student living down, lets all give ourselves a pat on the back. The thing that always strikes me as odd is sometimes people will choose to live with other people they know, but not necessarily like, over living with a ranthought of living with someone they have never met too uncomfortable. They would prefer a roommate they only have the vaguest connection to over closing their eyes and spinning the wheel of chance. For me, its the exact opposite. For the two years I dent living with someone I have never met before than living with any friend or acquaintance that came to UF with me. The more random, the better. I actually chose my freshman-year roommate solely on the basis that she was the have a Facebook account. So far, I cant complain on my methodology because the girls I have lived with up to this point have all been absolute sweethearts. riences though, Ive had friends who have lived with randomly chosen roommates, and they end up quietly despising each other for the remainder of the school year. But in my mind, I would rather end up hating living with a random roommate than end up hating living lost anything by the end of it. Having randomly selected roommates teaches you a lot about how to live with really different sorts of people, which is a pretty essential life skill. Even though you may not ever live with those people again, you will have to coexist with similar types of people eventually, either in classes or at work. Most importantly, I think it teaches people how to roll with the punches. Sure, there will be the good and the bad, but after the year is over, you can just look back on it with friends and tell stories and laugh about it. Or, if your experience was beyond a joking matter, at least you have learned what you never want in a roommate again, and hopefully, you will have better luck next time. College and the few years after is the only compact time we get to try out new living arrangements with various types of places and various types of people. Being fearless about the journey helps to test your limits, to expand your experiences and to come away with some great stories, which are possibly the best parts of college.

During another MTV awards ceremony, Kanye West infamously interrupted Taylor Swifts acceptance speech. boyantly gay fashion reporter Bruno, dropped from the ceiling and landed his crotch in the face of rapper Eminem, said a Los Angeles Times article. Eminem seemed to not be in on the stunt and got visibly upset, storming out of the auditorium. But Eminem later admitted that he was in on the stunt from the beginning. And writer Scott Aukerman also admitted to having orchestrated the event. was escorted out of the event during the next commercial break. When she got back to her seat after the incident, she knocked over whatever was in her cup. Luckily, Ferrell wasnt too upset by what happened. Plus, we dont think he takes many things seriously because he wore a suit with a money pattern on it to the awards show. I think she wanted to tell me something important, but there was no message, Ferrell later joked backstage to MTV, according to Us Weekly. It was just a lot of hot liquor breath. And, then, and a little bit of sweat. And then she ran away. But the ship sailed on. So this ended up being just a terrible misstep made by Plaza? She tweeted her thanks to Kanye afterwards, but that doesnt mean her interruption went off as well as his did. She wrote #TheToDoList across her chest in some sort of marker, but we dont think anyone noticed that bit of informawas actually doing. She did it during a not-very-popular awards show, and shes normally very collected as an individual. Dont mess up your sweet Parks and Recreation gig, girl. Lauren Flanneryopinions@alligator.org

TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7CITF a necessity Dear Gators, As the current Student Body president at the University of Florida, I am calling on your much-needed support. The current legislative session is three weeks from ending, and I am extremely worried about the future of two of our most prominent buildings on campus: Newell Hall and the J. Wayne Reitz Union. The Capital Improvement Trust Fund fee was bonded every four years for nonacademic student life buildings on campus. these years when CITF funds that have been collected from students should be appropriated for student-approved projects at the donor universities. The Florida Senate, however, has not authorized bonding of these student fees for capital projects, as of now. Although I understand the importance of carefully considering any policy that may increase the state debt, it is important to note that the CITF fees are collected from students for this purpose. The debt is then serviced from the fees themselves and does not require general revenue or other sales tax dollars to service. The two projects in question are the expansion and renovation of the Reitz Union and the renovation of the third-oldest building on campus, Newell Hall, to open its use as a student study center a library without books. If these fees are not bonded out, UF students would lose a combined $23 million for both of these projects. Most alarming, these cuts would cripple our Union expansion by cutting $10 million from the total budget of the $75 million project. Furthermore, the renovation and repurpose of Newell Hall, currently vacant in the heart of campus, would not see the light of day. The J. Wayne Reitz Union was ulation of 20,000 people. Now, the Union gets that for the Union renovation project for eight years, and now, we need We need you, the Gator Nation, to voice your support in the Florida Senate to help get these projects through the legislature with the necessary bonding authorization. Please call and email your senator and Senate leadership to show support for such iconic buildings and the need to bond out student CITF fees to make these dreams become a reality. On behalf of all 50,000 current students and any future students at the University of Florida, we thank you for your support and will always remember the legacy you will leave. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please edu. For more information on the CITF. To contact your senator and Senate leadership today, Thank you again, and as always, go Gators! Tj Villamil UF Student Body presidentWhite coat responsibilityBetween the sidewalk entrance of Shands at UF and a few steps past the 20-foot limit of the next no-smoking sign is one of the remaining havens for smokers to puff gray haze into the air. week and, without fail, see individuals of generations past fading in their wheelchairs with attached IV towers handling their last packs. I pass by scrubs with long faces holding their hand and lit cigarette inside the trash can to avoid suspicion and judgment. Yet, none of these images have stirred me as much as the individual in a white coat away carefree across the street from the cancer hospital. I could not stare for too long because such a shameful sight grew too heavy. As a medical student who recently received a white coat, I respect the responsibility and trust it symbolizes. At Shands at UF, white coats are not exclusive to current and future physicians. Pharmacists, nurse practitioners and laboratory researchers can all wear the white coat. Heck, anyone can even walk into the bookstore and buy one. good intent to wear one. But that smokers profession does not matter. The harm done is equally the same. Think of the pregnant woman who passes by a staff member posing as a chimney on her way for a checkup. Think of her school-aged children who come with her and see a white coat endorsing the production of gray clouds. Think of the cancer patient who was recently diagnosed moron on the way to the bus. One can come up with numerous scenarios where it is inappropriate to allow a person in a white coat to emulate the bead. Let this serve as a reminder for all of us who wear or will wear the white coat to do so in a professional manner with nonLet us join in reason and call attention to the smoking problem still on the sidewalks in front of campus, especially the hospital. As Simon & Garfunkel once said, Silence like a cancer grows. Joseph Diaz UF College of Medicine first-year medical studentLetters to the Editor Irreligion is on the rise in the United States. Last year, the Pew Research Center reported 1 in 5 Americans doesnt ascribe to any religion. Of the said they werent looking to adopt a faith either. With words like atheist and agnostic coming more and more into style, I wonder what kind of image people have when they hear or say those words. Im sure many have an image of grumpy people who hate God. But most atheists I know and interact with are nothing have a very strong sense of morality and social justice they just happen to not believe in any gods. Perhaps the perception of grumpiness stems from the fact that the word atheist is a negative description of belief. Many atheists, instead, prefer to label themselves as secular humanists people who simply believe in the well-being of humanity without belief in any gods. According to the Humanist Manifesto III of the American Humanist Association, Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, our ability and responsibility to lead that aspire to the greater good of humanity. With the number of people who identify as humanist always growing, it is a wonder to me there is no humanist organization at UF. In the interest of promoting humanist values and advocating for secular humanists on campus, I propose one be established. This will require a core of students who want to see that sort of organization on campus. A humanist organization on campus would mean the establishment of a place where people who want to see positive social change could meet up and discuss the problems that humanity faces and conceive solutions to those problems. A humanist organization on campus would mean the creation of a community of people who are excited by science and reason, who feel a tingle when they consider the stars. Aside from that, a secular humanist organization on campus the lives of others once weve left ment comes from humane participation in society, so a secular humanist organization on campus would be engaged in charity and service. I can recall the happiness I felt being surrounded by people who were as enthusiastic about science, reason and the well-being of humanity as I am at the Accent Speakers Bureau event featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson. I think it would be great if that feeling of community could be recreated on campus. This coming academic year is the perfect year for a humanist organization to debut on campus. The longer we wait, the less time we spend pursuing human well-being and advocating for those who want it. In the words of Carl Sagan, If we are not committed to our own survival, who will be? If you or any UF students you know would be interested in doing something, in creating an organization like that, please join the event or contact me at the email above.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffA commuter rides his bike east on Museum Road on Monday afternoon. A new study shows that biking to work can be healthier than regular exercise. LIFESTYLE JEFFREY REALEAlligator Contributing WriterStudents planning on hitting the gym today might want to bike instead. A new study by Australian Epidemiologist Takemi Sugiyama shows that commuting by bike can be healthier than regular exercise. The four-year, 882-person study found that people who biked to work gained less weight, on average, than those who commuted by car and exercised regularly. Alex Radulescu is one UF student who bikes to campus. I used to do stationary biking and weight lifting but currently not so much, said the 18-year-old electrical engineering sophomore. Radulescu said he lives about a half mile from campus, but said he would still bike even if he lived further away. he said. Biking is awesome. Assistant professor Norman Lewis also bikes to UF every day. He said he lives 2 miles from campus and bikes in the rain or shine. I love biking, I always have, Lewis said. I have been biking since I was about 7 or 8. Lewis and Radulescu arent alone. A study conducted in 2003 by UF found that 8 percent of UF faculty, staff and students biked to campus. Another UF study in 2004 found that about 13 percent of students biked to school. Lewis said biking can be enjoyable with cautious and safe. A bicyclists has to obey the law, he said. I stop at all red lights and stop signs. Lewis said biking keeps him young. I can still run 5 miles. As long as I [bike], Ill stay young and act young, he said.Commuters may want to ride their bicycle, study shows GIFTHORSE WILL RAFFLE OFF A $50 GIFT CARD.

UFs TOMS Campus Club is hosting One Day Without Shoes from noon to 2 p.m. on the Plaza of the Americas. One Day Without Shoes is a national event that was started by the TOMS shoes company, and it is meant to raise awareness about childrens health and education by going one day without our own shoes, said UF TOMS President Emily Dhondt, a 20-year-old UF advertising junior. Samantha Wright, the former club president, said it is a simple way to help spread the word about TOMS mission and introduce people to the hardships others face. Many of the individuals that TOMS donates to have never owned a pair of shoes, and every day, they are forced to walk great distances or step on sharp objects in their bare feet, said the 21-yearold UF family, youth and community sciences senior. receive coupons for $5 off a pair of TOMS at Gifthorse.

COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterGator Dining Services recently announced Pollo Tropical, along with Burger King and Papa Johns, will start accepting meal plans in Fall 2013. A total of 10 locations including the Fresh Food Company, Gator Corner Dining Center, Moes Southwest Grill, Pollo Tropical, Papa Johns, Burger King, Chomp It, Croutons, Home Zone and the Camellia Court Caf will accept residential, commuter, and faculty and staff meal plans, Marketing Program Manager for Gator Dining Services Jill Rodriguez wrote in an email. Based on the positive feedback we received when we added Moes Southwest Grill and Chomp It, we decided to add more locations for added value and convenience for meal plan participants, she said. Rodriguez said meal plans can be redeemed one lunch a Pollo Tropical, Papa Johns, Croutons, Home Zone, Camellia Court Caf and Chomp It. One dinner a day can be redeemed four days per excluding the Camellia Court Caf. She said the plan also allows for one meal for dinner daily after 4 p.m. at Burger King or Moes Southwest Grill. Spencer Smud, a 22-yearold UF recreation programming senior, said students will take advantage of the expansion. He particularly likes Pollo Tropical. I feel that a lot of students do end up passing by the Reitz, but now that theyve made more commercialized eateries included, itll attract more people to the meal plan, he said. The seven-day open access meal plan for Fall costs $1,896, according to the Gator day open access meal plan for Fall costs $1,887.

The blasts occurred at about 2:45 p.m., scattering screaming runners and spectators. Buildings shook; windows broke. Bright bloodstains on the sidewalk emerged as the smoke cleared. UF public relations alumna Michaela Trimble, now a global marketing communications and advertising graduate student at Emerson College, said her entire explosion. Then I heard the second one, she said. And then, I heard people screaming. Trimble watched as customers evacuated from bars and restaurants. The streets were chaotic. The scene looked unreal to Michelle Adams, who had turned on the television after getting out of her hotel rooms shower. I thought it was a movie, the Gainesville Health and Fitness Center personal trainer wrote in an email. I had just come through there, and that was not what it looked like.

When they heard, Lets go! they took off smiling. Team Florida, a UF student-run cycling club, led a 15-mile memorial bike ride celebrating Michael R. Edmonds Jr., a UF student who took his life and fell from Ben Hill Edmonds, 26, came to UF in 2011 as a journalism major, and struggled with depression and bipolar disorder. Neal Shepherd, a 19-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior and Team Florida vice president, said the ride brought back memories of a previous race he participated in shortly after Edmonds death. Last year, Shepherd learned about the news a week before the Collegiate Individual Omnium Conference Championships. Shepherd won a medal at the race and buried it with Edmonds ashes. He was talking about conference for the longest time, and it was devastating to not have him there, Shepherd said. I felt it was important to give him a piece of what he missed.

Johnson said when some people get rid of their pets, they release their animals into the wild, causing an increase in nonnative animals in Florida. Some of these animals have negative effects on the environment, he said. Several species in the past have caused a decline in other animal populations. Last year, 297 animals such as lizards, snakes and turtles were turned it to the FWC at Exotic Pet Amnesty Day events, said Diane Hirth, FWC habitat and species conservation communications coordinator. Normally, what we receive are animals that are not commonly sold in pet stores and not very expensive, she said.

The hybrid battery power really helps us to increase fuel said.

However, they differ in miles per gallon and cost. Skinner said the current biodiesel buses get about four to six miles per gallon. The hybrid buses get about 15 percent to 20 percent better gas mileage than their non-hybrid counterparts. The second difference is the price tag. RTS regular biodiesel buses cost $400,000, and each hybrid bus costs $600,000. The addition of these ecofriendly buses has piqued interest in students on the UF campus.

Roomie retrospective: dont fear the randomAs the end of the semester rolls around, everyone seems to be getting serious cabin fever about their living situations. People moving from residence halls to apartments say, I cant wait until I have my own bathroom! People moving from old roommates to new roommates say, I cant wait until Im not woken up by her hair dryer at 8 in the morning! Lets give ourselves some credit. Sharing living space with people is a wild adventure of innumerable outcomes, and it can be a hard thing to learn straight off the bat. We go straight from 18 years of living with our loving family into a contractual-style agreement with someone we may or may not have known before, then we walk into the room that will be our home for the next nine months. That is a pretty big jump, so what happens from there on out is anyones guess. In a school of more than 50,000 people, if someone compiled all of the stories UF students had to say about their roommates, I bet it would be a pretty zany saga of the good, the bad and the crazy. So, for another year of student living down, lets all give ourselves a pat on the back. The thing that always strikes me as odd is sometimes people will choose to live with other people they know, but not necessarily like, over living with a ranthought of living with someone they have never met too uncomfortable. They would prefer a roommate they only have the vaguest connection to over closing their eyes and spinning the wheel of chance. For me, its the exact opposite. For the two years I dent living with someone I have never met before than living with any friend or acquaintance that came to UF with me. The more random, the better. I actually chose my freshman-year roommate solely on the basis that she was the have a Facebook account. So far, I cant complain on my methodology because the girls I have lived with up to this point have all been absolute sweethearts. riences though, Ive had friends who have lived with randomly chosen roommates, and they end up quietly despising each other for the remainder of the school year. But in my mind, I would rather end up hating living with a random roommate than end up hating living lost anything by the end of it. Having randomly selected roommates teaches you a lot about how to live with really different sorts of people, which is a pretty essential life skill. Even though you may not ever live with those people again, you will have to coexist with similar types of people eventually, either in classes or at work. Most importantly, I think it teaches people how to roll with the punches. Sure, there will be the good and the bad, but after the year is over, you can just look back on it with friends and tell stories and laugh about it. Or, if your experience was beyond a joking matter, at least you have learned what you never want in a roommate again, and hopefully, you will have better luck next time. College and the few years after is the only compact time we get to try out new living arrangements with various types of places and various types of people. Being fearless about the journey helps to test your limits, to expand your experiences and to come away with some great stories, which are possibly the best parts of college.

I think she wanted to tell me something important, but there was no message, Ferrell later joked backstage to MTV, according to Us Weekly. It was just a lot of hot liquor breath. And, then, and a little bit of sweat. And then she ran away. But the ship sailed on. So this ended up being just a terrible misstep made by Plaza? She tweeted her thanks to Kanye afterwards, but that doesnt mean her interruption went off as well as his did. She wrote #TheToDoList across her chest in some sort of marker, but we dont think anyone noticed that bit of informawas actually doing.

TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7CITF a necessity Dear Gators, As the current Student Body president at the University of Florida, I am calling on your much-needed support. The current legislative session is three weeks from ending, and I am extremely worried about the future of two of our most prominent buildings on campus: Newell Hall and the J. Wayne Reitz Union. The Capital Improvement Trust Fund fee was bonded every four years for nonacademic student life buildings on campus. these years when CITF funds that have been collected from students should be appropriated for student-approved projects at the donor universities. The Florida Senate, however, has not authorized bonding of these student fees for capital projects, as of now. Although I understand the importance of carefully considering any policy that may increase the state debt, it is important to note that the CITF fees are collected from students for this purpose. The debt is then serviced from the fees themselves and does not require general revenue or other sales tax dollars to service. The two projects in question are the expansion and renovation of the Reitz Union and the renovation of the third-oldest building on campus, Newell Hall, to open its use as a student study center a library without books. If these fees are not bonded out, UF students would lose a combined $23 million for both of these projects. Most alarming, these cuts would cripple our Union expansion by cutting $10 million from the total budget of the $75 million project. Furthermore, the renovation and repurpose of Newell Hall, currently vacant in the heart of campus, would not see the light of day. The J. Wayne Reitz Union was ulation of 20,000 people. Now, the Union gets that for the Union renovation project for eight years, and now, we need We need you, the Gator Nation, to voice your support in the Florida Senate to help get these projects through the legislature with the necessary bonding authorization. Please call and email your senator and Senate leadership to show support for such iconic buildings and the need to bond out student CITF fees to make these dreams become a reality. On behalf of all 50,000 current students and any future students at the University of Florida, we thank you for your support and will always remember the legacy you will leave. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please edu. For more information on the CITF. To contact your senator and Senate leadership today, Thank you again, and as always, go Gators!

At Shands at UF, white coats are not exclusive to current and future physicians. Pharmacists, nurse practitioners and laboratory researchers can all wear the white coat.

Think of the pregnant woman who passes by a staff member posing as a chimney on her way for a checkup. Think of her school-aged children who come with her and see a white coat endorsing the production of gray clouds. Think of the cancer patient who was recently diagnosed moron on the way to the bus. One can come up with numerous scenarios where it is inappropriate to allow a person in a white coat to emulate the bead. Let this serve as a reminder for all of us who wear or will wear the white coat to do so in a professional manner with nonLet us join in reason and call attention to the smoking problem still on the sidewalks in front of campus, especially the hospital. As Simon & Garfunkel once said, Silence like a cancer grows. Joseph Diaz UF College of Medicine first-year medical studentLetters to the Editor Irreligion is on the rise in the United States. Last year, the Pew Research Center reported 1 in 5 Americans doesnt ascribe to any religion. Of the said they werent looking to adopt a faith either. With words like atheist and agnostic coming more and more into style, I wonder what kind of image people have when they hear or say those words. Im sure many have an image of grumpy people who hate God. But most atheists I know and interact with are nothing have a very strong sense of morality and social justice they just happen to not believe in any gods. Perhaps the perception of grumpiness stems from the fact that the word atheist is a negative description of belief. Many atheists, instead, prefer to label themselves as secular humanists people who simply believe in the well-being of humanity without belief in any gods. According to the Humanist Manifesto III of the American Humanist Association, Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, our ability and responsibility to lead that aspire to the greater good of humanity. With the number of people who identify as humanist always growing, it is a wonder to me there is no humanist organization at UF. In the interest of promoting humanist values and advocating for secular humanists on campus, I propose one be established. This will require a core of students who want to see that sort of organization on campus. A humanist organization on campus would mean the establishment of a place where people who want to see positive social change could meet up and discuss the problems that humanity faces and conceive solutions to those problems. A humanist organization on campus would mean the creation of a community of people who are excited by science and reason, who feel a tingle when they consider the stars. Aside from that, a secular humanist organization on campus the lives of others once weve left ment comes from humane participation in society, so a secular humanist organization on campus would be engaged in charity and service. I can recall the happiness I felt being surrounded by people who were as enthusiastic about science, reason and the well-being of humanity as I am at the Accent Speakers Bureau event featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson. I think it would be great if that feeling of community could be recreated on campus. This coming academic year is the perfect year for a humanist organization to debut on campus. The longer we wait, the less time we spend pursuing human well-being and advocating for those who want it. In the words of Carl Sagan, If we are not committed to our own survival, who will be? If you or any UF students you know would be interested in doing something, in creating an organization like that, please join the event or contact me at the email above.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffA commuter rides his bike east on Museum Road on Monday afternoon. A new study shows that biking to work can be healthier than regular exercise. LIFESTYLE JEFFREY REALEAlligator Contributing WriterStudents planning on hitting the gym today might want to bike instead. A new study by Australian Epidemiologist Takemi Sugiyama shows that commuting by bike can be healthier than regular exercise. The four-year, 882-person study found that people who biked to work gained less weight, on average, than those who commuted by car and exercised regularly. Alex Radulescu is one UF student who bikes to campus. I used to do stationary biking and weight lifting but currently not so much, said the 18-year-old electrical engineering sophomore. Radulescu said he lives about a half mile from campus, but said he would still bike even if he lived further away. he said. Biking is awesome. Assistant professor Norman Lewis also bikes to UF every day. He said he lives 2 miles from campus and bikes in the rain or shine. I love biking, I always have, Lewis said. I have been biking since I was about 7 or 8. Lewis and Radulescu arent alone. A study conducted in 2003 by UF found that 8 percent of UF faculty, staff and students biked to campus. Another UF study in 2004 found that about 13 percent of students biked to school. Lewis said biking can be enjoyable with cautious and safe. A bicyclists has to obey the law, he said. I stop at all red lights and stop signs. Lewis said biking keeps him young. I can still run 5 miles. As long as I [bike], Ill stay young and act young, he said.Commuters may want to ride their bicycle, study shows GIFTHORSE WILL RAFFLE OFF A $50 GIFT CARD. LAUREN RICHARDSONAlligator Contributing WriterSome students will be ditching their shoes and navigating campus in their bare feet today. UFs TOMS Campus Club is hosting One Day Without Shoes from noon to 2 p.m. on the Plaza of the Americas. One Day Without Shoes is a national event that was started by the TOMS shoes company, and it is meant to raise awareness about childrens health and education by going one day without our own shoes, said UF TOMS President Emily Dhondt, a 20-year-old UF advertising junior. Samantha Wright, the former club president, said it is a simple way to help spread the word about TOMS mission and introduce people to the hardships others face. Many of the individuals that TOMS donates to have never owned a pair of shoes, and every day, they are forced to walk great distances or step on sharp objects in their bare feet, said the 21-yearold UF family, youth and community sciences senior. receive coupons for $5 off a pair of TOMS at Gifthorse. There will to Gifthorse for anyone who comes out without their shoes. Shannon Hill, a 19-year-old UF food and resource economics sophomore, said she plans to attend. Its a very easy way to get involved in an incredibly important worldwide movement, Hill said.
