KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterIn light of the Boston Marathon bombings, University Police is requesting members of the UF community look out for suspicious packages or mail. UF has not received any direct threats, but in an email to UF deans, directors and department chairs Thursday, UPD Chief Linda Stump requested assistance to remain vigilant and increase awareness of any suspicious activity/package and/or envelope that may arrive in your department. UF students, faculty and staff should be aware of packages or letters with lumps, bulges, stains, protruding objects or a nonexistent return address. They should also look out for packages with handwritten addresses or address labels with fake companies, wrapped in string, that look like they were not weighed by the United States Postal Service or small packages with excessive postage, Stump wrote in the email. This was a proactive outreach to those who would encounter the thousands of pieces of mail that enter campus, said UPD spokesman Maj. Brad Barber. Later, the email was forwarded to campus residents and parents. Stump encouraged anyone who sees a suspicious package to isolate it and to dial 911 or call UPD at 352-392-1111. The safety of everyone in the area of the package is our primary concern, she wrote. If you think the package is suspicious, it is.

Miguel Machado, a 21-yearold UF journalism junior, traveled to New Orleans over the weekend to vote at the nearest Venezuelan embassy, but his vote was not recognized. Ballots recorded outside Venezuela were not counted, according to published reports. An announcement made Sunday night by Tibisay Lucena, the president of Venezuelas National Electoral Council, declared Nicolas Maduro, a successor picked by the late President Hugo Chavez, the victor with 50.66 percent of the vote. Henrique Capriles, the opposing candidate, received 49.07 percent. The country is split in half, Machado said. Following Sundays election, Capriles asked for a recount of the votes. Andrea Carroz, a 19-yearold UF journalism sophomore, said she was disappointed by the election results and the way the votes were handled.

FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterTwo weeks and $33 million stand between an expanded Reitz Union and a building renovated for quiet studying. UF student senators are phoning Tallahassee to urge state senators to include UFs the projects, in a bond package. The package is already supported by the Florida House of Representatives, but if the Senate doesnt approve the bonds, funds for the Reitz Union expansion and Newell Hall renovations could be cut. Student Body President Tj Villamil said state senators are wary of approving the bonds out of fear it would add to the state debt. But UF has never defaulted on its loans, he said. UF secured the $75 million Reitz Union expansion in 2012, with $50 million from bonded student fees and $5 million from UF reserves. An expected $20 million would come from the Capital Improvement Trust Fund if the bonds are approved. The Newell Hall renovations would get $13 million. The fund was created in 1988 to improve nonacademic student life buildings on campus. It is bonded every four years, which means when students pay tuition, their money is transferred into bonds to be approved by the state Legislature. Then, the money compounds over time to return a greater investment. The fee costs each student $6.76 per credit hour, according to the University Bursars website. We want students to call up senators and tell them how important these buildings are to them and how important it is to future Gators, Villamil said. Sen. Morgan Vollrath is senators and Students Party members to take to the phone bank next week. Its a bipartisan issue, he greatly from it.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013Vonecia Carswell / AlligatorSatchel Raye, owner of Satchels Pizza, prepares a zero-calorie, stevia-sweetened drink, Stevie Z Cal, on Wednesday afternoon. ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing Writercially canned Pepsi products in favor of homemade colas. Tuesday marked the debut of Satchels new sodas. The popular Gainesville vors regularly, with one rotating every few months. The options are Lola Cola; Steve Z Cal, a zero-calorie, stevia-sweetened soda; Ruby Root Beer; Ginnie Ginger Ale; Lennie Lemon Lime; and vor is Satch Sour, a probiotic, kombucha-brewed tea beverage. Satchel Raye, owner of Satchels, said the idea of making his own soda had been bubbling in his head since 2005, but he wanted to make sure the restaurant was secure before he moved on to other projects. I dont think Coke and Pepsi are the best experience, he said. I think its what people are used to, but I dont think that its necessarily the best. I think soda can be so much better. He said he wants his drinks to help people change their relationship with soda. The new beverages are meant to be enjoyed in moderation, Raye added. In a way, it becomes more of an experience and less of a habit once you realize that it can be better for you and taste better, he said. David Rodriguez, a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior, said he would be interested in trying Satchels original drinks. Everyone seems to have Coke or Pepsi products. It would be interesting to try something new, he said. It seems like theyre made right, unlike the corn syrupsweetened drinks. Raye said for now, his sodas still need more tweaking. Hes recruited his family and friends to help in the tastetesting process. Our sodas are going to get better over the next few months, he said. I feel like what we have now is not what were going to have in three months.Satchels hopes its homemade sodas will make a splashAbout 60 students gathered near UF Monday to rally for a recountdecision was irreversible, Venezuelans suspected the election had been tampered with. Carroz has been using Twitter and other social media sites to express her concerns about the situation. Ive been ranting like crazy, she said. Carroz has seen pictures online of ballot receipts being burned by Maduros victory. In a statement released Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio said, I am troubled by press accounts of fraud and electoral misconduct including uncounted votes. He urged the Venezuelan government to conduct a full and transparent audit of the results. The Venezuelan people should know that the democracies of the Western Hemisphere are watching the electoral review process closely and will seek to hold accountable any individual determined to have disrupted the peaceful conduct of free and fair elections, he said. Maria Carolina Di Bonaventura, president of the UF Venezuelan Student Association, said about 60 students gathered Monday on the corner of Southwest 13th Street and West University Avenue to rally in support of a recount. The organization raised money to pay for trips to New Orleans after Hugo Chavezs death March 5 and the announcement of an election for a new president so local Venezuelans could vote at the Venezuelan embassy, Di Bonaventura said. The club provided seven bus tickets to students without asking Di Bonaventura said shes seen a trend with people in the U.S. asking for a recount. If youve moved to the United States, she said, youre most likely not in accordance with the government over there. VENEZUELA, from page 1LIFESTYLE JEFFREY REALEAlligator Contributing WriterA new study suggests the taste of beer, instead of the alcohol content, may be what causes people to drink more, according to Indiana University School of Medicine researchers. UF student Ellen Farley, a 23-year-old public relations senior, doesnt even take a sip of beer. Instead, she drinks wine. I really just dont like beer; not even a sip is enjoyable, she said. Wine, on the other hand, is something I enjoy, and I tend to drink more of it. The study found dopamine, a hormone connected to rewarding activities, is released from the brain after drinking a small amount of alcohol, and the taste alone is enough to release the hormone. The results suggest alcoholism could be a form of Pavlovian conditioning, which pairs a stimulus Pavlovian style of learning, a more thorough investigation of alcoholism may suggest that it is acquired by operant conditioning, a form of learning that occurs through consequences rather than prior stimuli, said Chelsea Fleck, a 21-year-old UF post-baccalaureate research assistant in behavior analysis. However, she said the study Without testing the effects of nonalcoholic beer, Fleck said, it is nearly impossible to conclude that the taste of beer causes continued drinking, which is a shortfall of the research procedures.Study: Beers taste intoxicates drinkers Without testing the effects of nonalcoholic beer, it is nearly impossible to conclude that the taste of beer causes continued drinking.Chelsea FleckUF post-baccalaureate research assistant in behavior analysis ANYONE CAN ATTEND. BARBARA DIMAJOAlligator Contributing WriterMultiple UF Jewish organizations are hosting the theyre looking to break a record. The goal is to have more dents come out at 5:30 p.m. to Flavet Field for a free dinner to celebrate the Jewish day of rest. Spencer Greenfeder, the events coordinator and a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior, said the original idea started at Binghamton University in 1994 with Shabbat 1000. We were essentially inspired by them, but at UF, we have more Jewish students than any other public university in the country at over know we can get as many people to participate. ple, this is the second-largest Shabbat dinner goal behind New York University, which holds a citywide Shabbat 2000. Greenfeder said Shablargest Shabbat dinner to ever hit any college campus. Ali Lakofsky, the events co-coordinator and a 21-yearold UF political science junior, said although the event is targeted at Jewish students, anyone is welcome to attend. Chabad at UF, Hillel and the Jewish Student Union will pay for the event and the dinner with the help of private donors. We were able to fundraise $7,000 alone from individual contributions in the community and from friends and family.

ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Writer Grand Ballroom with his legs crossed in front of about 25 UF students Thursday. Best known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in the Broadway musical Rent, Rapp spoke in an open forum for students interested in theater three hours before his scheduled public speech. Rapp, who was paid $15,000 to come to UF, gave advice to actors trying to break into the business. Good luck trying not to be nervous, he said. Whatever you have going on for you Nerves are energy. Wesley Huffman, a 19-year-old exploratory freshman, was among the students in the private session. I thought it was really cool to hear from a seasoned Broadway veteran up close in person, he said. During the event hosted by Reitz Union Board Entertainment and Accent Speakers Bureau, Rapp spoke to nearly 300 students about the road to Rent and the death of the musicals creator, Jonathan Larson, who only witnessed rehearsal versions of the show. I feel a tremendous honor and responsibility to bear witness to what we all went through together and honor Jonathans legacy, Rapp said. He said working on Rent was an exciting musical endeavor, but he had no idea how big a sensation it would become. Its utterly transformed my life, Rapp said. Thank you for being interested and celebrating the work he [Larson] and everyone did to bring this into the world.

FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Sarah Jean Fickett / AlligatorFiring Up the GrillPollo Tropical is now hiring for its new location in Butler Plaza off of Archer Road. The restaurant is set KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterBills that would require a unanimous vote to sentence someone to death havent budged in the state House of Representatives and Senate. Current law stipulates that juries only need a majority vote to sentence a person to death. Florida is the only state with that minimum of a requirement, which has Florida Sen. Darren Soto (D-Kissimmee) concerned. Soto co-introduced SB 148 in December. It was referred to committees but never made it to a vote in any of them. Just keep in mind, the folks who are getting a death penalty are getting life in prison, he said. Whether they should be executed or not is another question. Soto said Florida has seen many people exonerated by DNA evidence, which suggests there needs to be more safeguards in the system. Katheryn Zambrana, a UF criminology professor, sees more safeguards as a positive thing, which the proposed legislation provides for in more than one way. Zambrana explained the agree the defendant is guilty. In order to sentence the defendant to death with the current law, a jury determines if the aggravating circumstances, such as if a murder was premeditated, outweigh the mitigating circumstances, like if a defendant had a history of child abuse or mental illness. With the proposed legislation, a jury would have to unanimously prove each aggravating circumstance beyond a reasonable doubt and all agree to issue the death penalty. The process is longer, but I think its better, Zambrana said. Itll reduce the likelihood of wrongful conviction and will ensure that jurors are sure in their conviction. However, the legislation is controversial. State Attorney Bill Cervone said he doesnt see a need for a change in the current law. What it does is allow the possibility for one aberrational juror to hold the rest of the jury hostage to their own personal belief, he said. Cervone said a long list of safeguards already exist in Florida. A judge can override a jurys decision, or a defendant can appeal the decision in higher courts, he said. In Tallahassee, HB 961 sponsor Rep. Mark Pafford (D-West Palm Beach) said hes disappointed the bill hasnt moved. Pafford said committees stop meeting in the seventh week of the legislative session. Its currently week six. You get one opportunity to make a decision as to whether or not youre going to take a life, he said. My goal in this bill is to make that decision unanimous for a jury, to provide more potential that somebody isnt put to death beyond a reasonable doubt by the jury. Contact Kathryn Varn at kvarn@alligator.org.Florida bill would require unanimous vote for death penaltySTATE THE FIRST OFFENSE IS A $30 FINE. ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterTexting while driving may be illegal in Florida as soon as May 3 if a bill passed unanimously Tuesday in the Florida Senate also passes in the states House of Representatives. Police could charge a driver with texting while driving only as a secondary offense, meaning the driver would have to be already doing something wrong such as swerving or changing three points would be added to the offenders license. Texting while driving has recently become a more frequent deadly habit for Americans, said Patrick Sheehy, a representative for UNITE, a health and wellness organization, who was running a distracted driving simulation booth on UFs campus Thursday. In 2009, there were about 450,000 injuries due to distracted driving, which is 20 percent of all accidents on the road, Sheehy said. For every letter typed, the drivers eyes are off the road for about three to four seconds, and those letters can add up, Sheehy said. If youre driving blind, youre not driving, he said. Youre just throwing a moving time bomb down the road. The bill has built-in exceptions for those using a GPS or reading safety-related information. Texting at red lights would still be allowed. Eric Strack, a 22-year-old UF advertising senior, tried a simulator Thursday, but he said he retext while driving. However, hearing about the impending legislation quickly changed his mind. I know its hard to stop cold turkey because sometimes, you just have to send a message out, limiting to just red lights and eventually cut it out completely.Florida sends message about texting If youre driving blind, youre not driving.

I agree with scientists: Mars or bustLast week, Stephen Hawking gave humanity a startling prediction. We wont survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet, the physicist said. Hawking emphasized the critical need for our species to continue space exploration and expansion into the universe. Such sentiments have also been articulated to some degree by others. Scientists like Neil deGrasse Tyson, who recently spoke at UF, also emphasize the importance of continuing human expansion into the universe. To these scientists, the next destination is clear: Mars. Tyson has spoken on numerous occasions of the cultural impact an expedition to Mars would have. He imagines a future in which the younger generation will be excited by a Mars mission, inspiring them to create a better future for humanity. To Tyson, an expedition to Mars would be an investment. So, how far is the United States from a manned mission to the Red Planet? Unfortunately for Americans, the U.S. isnt leading the charge. NASA doesnt have any plans to bring humans to the surface of Mars, but it is planning to set people in orbit of the planet in the 2030s. Russia, on the other hand, is assuming the role of the ambitious leader of a manned Mars mission. In 2011, a group of volunteers from China, Europe and South America particito a mock spaceship for 520 days, simulating a round-trip to Mars. Although this might not seem like much, such a gesture of international fellowship something the United States has historically enjoyed offering could signal the start of a new leader in the space race. I would remind the reader that since the retirement of the space shuttle, NASA has no primary vehicle for sending people into space. To get to the International Space Station, our own astronauts take a lift on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Russia isnt the only threat to American dominance of the race to Mars. A group of Dutch entrepreneurs plans to send a group of humans to the Red Planet one-way. The project, called Mars One, would be funded in part through a reality TV show chronicling the adventures of the travelers. Mars One is searching for volunteers from the public for the trip and has already collected 45,000 emails from interested parties. I expect this number will skyrocket as time progresses and the plans of Mars One come into fruition. Although Im hopeful for this initiative, the fact is no private enterprise has done so much as put a satellite in orbit of Mars. Even Russia has had problems with getting probes to Mars. It would seem NASA is still our best hope for getting humans to the planet. But why go to Mars at all? We have enough problems here, dont we? A manned trip to Mars would change everything. There is no greater force for good today than the exploration of the cosmos. A renewed interest in expansion would change a lot for the better, but more than anything, it would change the way we view ourselves. From Earth, Mars is just a pale, red dot. Imagine what Earth must look like from Mars. Imagine what a revolution in consciousness it would be to have one of our own, a representative of humanity, touch down on that world and behold our home, Earth, as nothing more than a pale, blue dot. Im not sure there is a more inspiring and humbling image: Look at how small we are. From a cosmic perspective, Earth is a very small place. But look at how far weve come: Our small, fragile bodies the seas of space and touch the sands of another world. That image is something that will more profoundly and positively change humanity than any laws, speeches or stimuli ever could. Mars or bust. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF.

Thats a pretty good deal, Paisley, said Colbert on his broadcast Wednesday night. LL will forget 250 years of enslavement if you accept his taste in accessories. He sang a few bars of it with actor Alan Cumming, who was the guest that episode, after calling out the hilarity and terribleness of Paisley. We highly suggest you go watch footage of the song, but bear in mind, some of the language is a little offensive but a lot hilarious. goes-for-stupid-stuff LAUREL to Stephen Colbert!

Astronomers consider water an essential ingredient for the possibility of life on other planets.

Twitters trying to be more hip with the youth, apparently, as it launched a new app this week: #music. What is #music? The platform tracks the Twitter activity of a range of acts, and highlights trending bands, singers, and rappers on its tiled homepage. In addition, you can search for emerging artists or have Twitter recommend an act, based on the artists you already follow, explained The Christian Science Monitor. You only get quick previews of songs, though, so its more of a music discovery device than it is an actual streaming service. We give a well-this-wasnt-something-we-needed-like-at-all-but-at-leastthe-interface-is-pretty DART to Twitter! Maybe yall can work on making the actual app look a little better. Now that were going to waste time complaining about our smartphones. This week, the popular website BuzzFeed was mentioned on resentatives. Although most people reference the website in regards to its time-wasting aspects, its becoming more and more widely recognized as a source for breaking news. This week especially showed us that news sites should try to be accurate and patient before reporting something incorrectly. Combine that with the more playful aspects of the site, and its no wonder more people are tuning into the pop culture-y stuff as well as the news. We give a dont-let-the-teasing-bring-you-down LAUREL to BuzzFeed. Thats it for the last Darts & Laurels of the semester. Or should we say, Laurels & Laurels.

FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NBAEight former Florida players will participate for seven teams in the 2013 NBA Playoffs. The postseason begins on Saturday.Poll QuestionWhich Florida sport will most likely win a national championship this season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Freshman Bridget Sloan has become one of Floridas top scoring gymnasts this season. See story, page 14.THE RALLY After Floridas 5-3 win at Florida Gulf Coast on Tuesday, the Gators are winners of six in a row as they travel to Columbia, Mo., this weekend to take on Missouri the 13thranked team in the Southeastern Conference. Josh Jurnovoy and Adam Pincus debate whether Floridas recent run of success is sustainable or merely a hot streak.s Josh: Florida (20-18, 8-7 SEC) has every right to be happy about the past two weeks. After a 2-0 loss to Mississippi State on April 6, the Gators were four games under .500 with their an FGCU team that swept them in Gainesville earlier in the season. Even though Florida won all of those games, that doesnt mean it is primed for a deep postseason run. The Gators have gotten a lot of help from the opposition hitting than it has to this point. Adam: What better teams are you talking SEC series at No. 3 LSU on May 2-4 are 17-43 in SEC play. Thats weaker than you in the gym, and thats giving those teams Missouri, Tennessee, Auburn and Georgia pretty for Florida this season. Most of UFs lead off an inning after grabbing a lead. It all happened, but it takes time for a young team to turn it around. While the Gators almost dug Josh: Theres no question the rest of the regular season sets up well for Florida, and itll tions to unreasonable heights for the postseawhile giving up no more than three runs. During their winning streak, the a start. For the season, theyve had three thon Crawford and one run allowed. With together in the SEC and NCAA Tournaments, the bullpen wont survive if the starters dont start giving it more of a rest. Adam: In a regional format, Ill take Floridas horse staff the Gators leaned on last season, regional from the bullpen. This Gators team isnt the same squad playing its way out of the postseason. This is a dangerous team with burgeoning talent at the plate and on the mound. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator. org. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator. org.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterInside the HP Pavilion center in San Jose, Calif., Bridget Sloan was vying for a spot on the U.S. Gymnastics team at the Olympic trials on June 28, 2012. Four years had passed since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Sloan was considered a veteran after competing on the silver medalwinning team in Beijing. She now faced younger U.S. gymnasts such as Jordyn Wieber and Gabby Douglas. A 20-year-old Bridget was the fourth-oldest of 15 gymnasts competing at the 2012 Olympic trials preliminaries that day. I remember waking up that morning feeling good, Sloan said. I was like All right, todays the day. Its trials. Sloan traveled to San Jose with her coach, Marvin Sharp, while her mother and father, Mary and Jeff Sloan, planned to arrive the evening Sharp, who has coached Bridget since she was four, knew her medical history before going to California. Bridget had suffered numerous injuries to her knees, ankles and arms since joining the U.S. national team in 2003. By the time we got to the summer of 2012, shed been training and competing for 10 years at that level, Sharp said. Sharp knew Bridget, the most decorated gymnast at trials, faced enormous pressure. She was the 2009 World Championships allaround champion, a six-time Visa Championship competitor and a Pan American Games gold medalist. She accomplished a lot I mean a lot more than 99 percent of the gymnasts out there, Sharp said. On the night before trials, while practicing her routine on uneven bars, Bridget released too soon on one of her favorite skills, the Church and realized she was off her mark when her toes came off the bar. I felt a little off when I was up there on the equipment, she said. mats. Her elbow ricocheted off of the sting mat just below her. Without any hesitation, she propped up, powdered her hands with chalk and prepared for another rotation. She skipped her release and performed her jump exclusively to try to avoid the pain that pierced through her arm. But she couldnt shake it. Meanwhile, Bridgets parents were en route to the HP Pavilion Center. A family friend reached out to Mary via text, worried by Bridgets injury. Unaware of the situation, her mother, Mary, couldnt make sense of it all. But any cause for concern was quickly dismissed. Marys friend followed up with a text that Bridget had moved on to balance beam. After consulting with USA Gymnastics medical coordinator Dr. Larry Nassar, Bridget returned to the balance beam and attempted a back handspring. Her arm, weak from her fall, collapsed. Clutching her elbow, Bridget turned to Sharp with a look of concern. I looked at Marvin and told him something wasnt right, Bridget said. Sloan convened with Dr. Nassar, who diagnosed Bridget with a bruised nerve in her elbow. it to the arena, Bridget called, urging them to meet her in the medical room just below the stadium. Bridget and Sharp felt it was in her best interest to forgo the remainder of the trials to avoid further injury to her elbow. That wasnt how we wanted to end our season, but we werent going to go out there and cause her anymore damage, and we didnt want to go out and have 16 falls and have that be her last memory, Sharp said. Bridgets announcement came one month before the London Olympics began, ending a career that took her from Pittsboro, Ind., to Beijing. (When I was) going through the MRI and X-Ray, and I realized that I was done... I started really appreciating gymnastics and what it offered me and what Ive been able to give back, Bridget said. In the weeks following her injury, Bridget took time to allow her elbow to heal. She worked closely with trainer Darrell Barnes in Indianapolis. Following rehab, she traveled to several gymnastics camps including Camp Woodward in Woodward, Pa., a camp she has coached at since 2009 and Flip Fest located in Crossville, Tenn. She kept herself very busy, Mary said. She kept herself focused on other things. At the camps she served as a ing from apparatus to apparatus, correcting back handsprings and bar swings. She began to sound like her coach of 16 years. People kept telling me I taught the way Marvin [Sharp] did, Bridget said. By the end of July, Bridget refocused her attention to selecting a college. She deferred endorsement money throughout her Elite career for a chance to compete collegiately. Her list had three schools: Utah, Georgia and Florida. With her deWorld Championships all-around titlist ever to compete collegiately. Utes coach Greg Marsden shared the same opinion of Bridget as other coaches: she was the most talented freshman going into college gymnastics. Everyone knew she was a bluechipper, said Marsden. She brings a great deal to a program with not only her abilities, but her personality, and everybody knew that and thats why we recruited her so hard. When Bridget called Rhonda Faehn to tell her she would become a Gator, there was no answer. On her second try, she got a hold of her new coach, who described Sloans commitment as a present. After falling 0.075 points short of winning the national championship at last years Super Six, the Gators nabbed Bridget, who made Florida a national title favorite in 2013. Sloan did not know what to expect at Florida. Her soon-to-be practices differed from the ones she was familiar with at the Elite level. Her teammates were skeptical, too. Junior Lauren Rose was unsure of Sloans personality. Performing alongside her was a former Olympian with enough competition hardI didnt know if she would acknowledge me, Rose said jokingly. And then again, I didnt know that we would become such good friends because shes so good. Admittedly, Sloan felt nervous throughout the teams preseason regiments until Floridas opening meet against Ball State on Jan. 4. Sloan competed on three events and took an outright win on vault her signature event. Since the postseason began, Sloan has performed her best yet. Sloan holds the NCAAs best regional qualifying score of 9.955 on uneven bars, and has won the event outright six times this season. On balance beam, she has a regional qualifying score of 9.92, second only to Oklahomas Taylor Spears score of 9.945. Bridget continued to impress at the Southeastern Conference Championships on March 23 in Little Rock, Ark. She earned a share of the SEC all-around title with a score of 39.75 following in the footsteps of teammate Kytra Hunter, who earned the title as a freshman in 2012. Her journey to Gainesville may have been littered with injuries, but as ever. Now, Bridget has a chance to get the Gators back to the Super Six today at 3 p.m. at the NCAA ChampiIm so glad that I kept my NCAA eligibility and came to Florida, Sloan said. And to be part of such a great team is such an honor.A New Chapter: Freshman overcomes injury at Olympic trialsJohn W.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterIn light of the Boston Marathon bombings, University Police is requesting members of the UF community look out for suspicious packages or mail. UF has not received any direct threats, but in an email to UF deans, directors and department chairs Thursday, UPD Chief Linda Stump requested assistance to remain vigilant and increase awareness of any suspicious activity/package and/or envelope that may arrive in your department. UF students, faculty and staff should be aware of packages or letters with lumps, bulges, stains, protruding objects or a nonexistent return address. They should also look out for packages with handwritten addresses or address labels with fake companies, wrapped in string, that look like they were not weighed by the United States Postal Service or small packages with excessive postage, Stump wrote in the email. This was a proactive outreach to those who would encounter the thousands of pieces of mail that enter campus, said UPD spokesman Maj. Brad Barber. Later, the email was forwarded to campus residents and parents. Stump encouraged anyone who sees a suspicious package to isolate it and to dial 911 or call UPD at 352-392-1111. The safety of everyone in the area of the package is our primary concern, she wrote. If you think the package is suspicious, it is.

Miguel Machado, a 21-yearold UF journalism junior, traveled to New Orleans over the weekend to vote at the nearest Venezuelan embassy, but his vote was not recognized. Ballots recorded outside Venezuela were not counted, according to published reports. An announcement made Sunday night by Tibisay Lucena, the president of Venezuelas National Electoral Council, declared Nicolas Maduro, a successor picked by the late President Hugo Chavez, the victor with 50.66 percent of the vote. Henrique Capriles, the opposing candidate, received 49.07 percent. The country is split in half, Machado said. Following Sundays election, Capriles asked for a recount of the votes. Andrea Carroz, a 19-yearold UF journalism sophomore, said she was disappointed by the election results and the way the votes were handled.

FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterTwo weeks and $33 million stand between an expanded Reitz Union and a building renovated for quiet studying. UF student senators are phoning Tallahassee to urge state senators to include UFs the projects, in a bond package. The package is already supported by the Florida House of Representatives, but if the Senate doesnt approve the bonds, funds for the Reitz Union expansion and Newell Hall renovations could be cut. Student Body President Tj Villamil said state senators are wary of approving the bonds out of fear it would add to the state debt. But UF has never defaulted on its loans, he said. UF secured the $75 million Reitz Union expansion in 2012, with $50 million from bonded student fees and $5 million from UF reserves. An expected $20 million would come from the Capital Improvement Trust Fund if the bonds are approved. The Newell Hall renovations would get $13 million. The fund was created in 1988 to improve nonacademic student life buildings on campus. It is bonded every four years, which means when students pay tuition, their money is transferred into bonds to be approved by the state Legislature. Then, the money compounds over time to return a greater investment. The fee costs each student $6.76 per credit hour, according to the University Bursars website. We want students to call up senators and tell them how important these buildings are to them and how important it is to future Gators, Villamil said. Sen. Morgan Vollrath is senators and Students Party members to take to the phone bank next week. Its a bipartisan issue, he greatly from it.

ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing Writercially canned Pepsi products in favor of homemade colas. Tuesday marked the debut of Satchels new sodas. The popular Gainesville vors regularly, with one rotating every few months. The options are Lola Cola; Steve Z Cal, a zero-calorie, stevia-sweetened soda; Ruby Root Beer; Ginnie Ginger Ale; Lennie Lemon Lime; and vor is Satch Sour, a probiotic, kombucha-brewed tea beverage. Satchel Raye, owner of Satchels, said the idea of making his own soda had been bubbling in his head since 2005, but he wanted to make sure the restaurant was secure before he moved on to other projects. I dont think Coke and Pepsi are the best experience, he said. I think its what people are used to, but I dont think that its necessarily the best. I think soda can be so much better. He said he wants his drinks to help people change their relationship with soda. The new beverages are meant to be enjoyed in moderation, Raye added. In a way, it becomes more of an experience and less of a habit once you realize that it can be better for you and taste better, he said. David Rodriguez, a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior, said he would be interested in trying Satchels original drinks. Everyone seems to have Coke or Pepsi products. It would be interesting to try something new, he said. It seems like theyre made right, unlike the corn syrupsweetened drinks. Raye said for now, his sodas still need more tweaking. Hes recruited his family and friends to help in the tastetesting process. Our sodas are going to get better over the next few months, he said.

Carroz has been using Twitter and other social media sites to express her concerns about the situation. Ive been ranting like crazy, she said. Carroz has seen pictures online of ballot receipts being burned by Maduros victory. In a statement released Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio said, I am troubled by press accounts of fraud and electoral misconduct including uncounted votes. He urged the Venezuelan government to conduct a full and transparent audit of the results. The Venezuelan people should know that the democracies of the Western Hemisphere are watching the electoral review process closely and will seek to hold accountable any individual determined to have disrupted the peaceful conduct of free and fair elections, he said. Maria Carolina Di Bonaventura, president of the UF Venezuelan Student Association, said about 60 students gathered Monday on the corner of Southwest 13th Street and West University Avenue to rally in support of a recount. The organization raised money to pay for trips to New Orleans after Hugo Chavezs death March 5 and the announcement of an election for a new president so local Venezuelans could vote at the Venezuelan embassy, Di Bonaventura said. The club provided seven bus tickets to students without asking Di Bonaventura said shes seen a trend with people in the U.S. asking for a recount. If youve moved to the United States, she said, youre most likely not in accordance with the government over there. VENEZUELA, from page 1LIFESTYLE JEFFREY REALEAlligator Contributing WriterA new study suggests the taste of beer, instead of the alcohol content, may be what causes people to drink more, according to Indiana University School of Medicine researchers. UF student Ellen Farley, a 23-year-old public relations senior, doesnt even take a sip of beer. Instead, she drinks wine. I really just dont like beer; not even a sip is enjoyable, she said. Wine, on the other hand, is something I enjoy, and I tend to drink more of it. The study found dopamine, a hormone connected to rewarding activities, is released from the brain after drinking a small amount of alcohol, and the taste alone is enough to release the hormone. The results suggest alcoholism could be a form of Pavlovian conditioning, which pairs a stimulus Pavlovian style of learning, a more thorough investigation of alcoholism may suggest that it is acquired by operant conditioning, a form of learning that occurs through consequences rather than prior stimuli, said Chelsea Fleck, a 21-year-old UF post-baccalaureate research assistant in behavior analysis. However, she said the study Without testing the effects of nonalcoholic beer, Fleck said, it is nearly impossible to conclude that the taste of beer causes continued drinking, which is a shortfall of the research procedures.Study: Beers taste intoxicates drinkers Without testing the effects of nonalcoholic beer, it is nearly impossible to conclude that the taste of beer causes continued drinking.Chelsea FleckUF post-baccalaureate research assistant in behavior analysis ANYONE CAN ATTEND.

The goal is to have more dents come out at 5:30 p.m. to Flavet Field for a free dinner to celebrate the Jewish day of rest. Spencer Greenfeder, the events coordinator and a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior, said the original idea started at Binghamton University in 1994 with Shabbat 1000. We were essentially inspired by them, but at UF, we have more Jewish students than any other public university in the country at over know we can get as many people to participate. ple, this is the second-largest Shabbat dinner goal behind New York University, which holds a citywide Shabbat 2000. Greenfeder said Shablargest Shabbat dinner to ever hit any college campus.

Best known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in the Broadway musical Rent, Rapp spoke in an open forum for students interested in theater three hours before his scheduled public speech. Rapp, who was paid $15,000 to come to UF, gave advice to actors trying to break into the business. Good luck trying not to be nervous, he said. Whatever you have going on for you Nerves are energy. Wesley Huffman, a 19-year-old exploratory freshman, was among the students in the private session. I thought it was really cool to hear from a seasoned Broadway veteran up close in person, he said. During the event hosted by Reitz Union Board Entertainment and Accent Speakers Bureau, Rapp spoke to nearly 300 students about the road to Rent and the death of the musicals creator, Jonathan Larson, who only witnessed rehearsal versions of the show. I feel a tremendous honor and responsibility to bear witness to what we all went through together and honor Jonathans legacy, Rapp said. He said working on Rent was an exciting musical endeavor, but he had no idea how big a sensation it would become. Its utterly transformed my life, Rapp said.

The restaurant is set KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterBills that would require a unanimous vote to sentence someone to death havent budged in the state House of Representatives and Senate. Current law stipulates that juries only need a majority vote to sentence a person to death. Florida is the only state with that minimum of a requirement, which has Florida Sen. Darren Soto (D-Kissimmee) concerned. Soto co-introduced SB 148 in December. It was referred to committees but never made it to a vote in any of them. Just keep in mind, the folks who are getting a death penalty are getting life in prison, he said. Whether they should be executed or not is another question. Soto said Florida has seen many people exonerated by DNA evidence, which suggests there needs to be more safeguards in the system. Katheryn Zambrana, a UF criminology professor, sees more safeguards as a positive thing, which the proposed legislation provides for in more than one way. Zambrana explained the agree the defendant is guilty. In order to sentence the defendant to death with the current law, a jury determines if the aggravating circumstances, such as if a murder was premeditated, outweigh the mitigating circumstances, like if a defendant had a history of child abuse or mental illness. With the proposed legislation, a jury would have to unanimously prove each aggravating circumstance beyond a reasonable doubt and all agree to issue the death penalty. The process is longer, but I think its better, Zambrana said. Itll reduce the likelihood of wrongful conviction and will ensure that jurors are sure in their conviction. However, the legislation is controversial. State Attorney Bill Cervone said he doesnt see a need for a change in the current law. What it does is allow the possibility for one aberrational juror to hold the rest of the jury hostage to their own personal belief, he said. Cervone said a long list of safeguards already exist in Florida. A judge can override a jurys decision, or a defendant can appeal the decision in higher courts, he said. In Tallahassee, HB 961 sponsor Rep. Mark Pafford (D-West Palm Beach) said hes disappointed the bill hasnt moved. Pafford said committees stop meeting in the seventh week of the legislative session. Its currently week six. You get one opportunity to make a decision as to whether or not youre going to take a life, he said. My goal in this bill is to make that decision unanimous for a jury, to provide more potential that somebody isnt put to death beyond a reasonable doubt by the jury.

ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterTexting while driving may be illegal in Florida as soon as May 3 if a bill passed unanimously Tuesday in the Florida Senate also passes in the states House of Representatives. Police could charge a driver with texting while driving only as a secondary offense, meaning the driver would have to be already doing something wrong such as swerving or changing three points would be added to the offenders license. Texting while driving has recently become a more frequent deadly habit for Americans, said Patrick Sheehy, a representative for UNITE, a health and wellness organization, who was running a distracted driving simulation booth on UFs campus Thursday. In 2009, there were about 450,000 injuries due to distracted driving, which is 20 percent of all accidents on the road, Sheehy said. For every letter typed, the drivers eyes are off the road for about three to four seconds, and those letters can add up, Sheehy said. If youre driving blind, youre not driving, he said. Youre just throwing a moving time bomb down the road. The bill has built-in exceptions for those using a GPS or reading safety-related information. Texting at red lights would still be allowed. Eric Strack, a 22-year-old UF advertising senior, tried a simulator Thursday, but he said he retext while driving. However, hearing about the impending legislation quickly changed his mind. I know its hard to stop cold turkey because sometimes, you just have to send a message out, limiting to just red lights and eventually cut it out completely.Florida sends message about texting If youre driving blind, youre not driving.

I agree with scientists: Mars or bustLast week, Stephen Hawking gave humanity a startling prediction. We wont survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet, the physicist said. Hawking emphasized the critical need for our species to continue space exploration and expansion into the universe. Such sentiments have also been articulated to some degree by others. Scientists like Neil deGrasse Tyson, who recently spoke at UF, also emphasize the importance of continuing human expansion into the universe. To these scientists, the next destination is clear: Mars. Tyson has spoken on numerous occasions of the cultural impact an expedition to Mars would have. He imagines a future in which the younger generation will be excited by a Mars mission, inspiring them to create a better future for humanity. To Tyson, an expedition to Mars would be an investment. So, how far is the United States from a manned mission to the Red Planet? Unfortunately for Americans, the U.S. isnt leading the charge. NASA doesnt have any plans to bring humans to the surface of Mars, but it is planning to set people in orbit of the planet in the 2030s. Russia, on the other hand, is assuming the role of the ambitious leader of a manned Mars mission. In 2011, a group of volunteers from China, Europe and South America particito a mock spaceship for 520 days, simulating a round-trip to Mars. Although this might not seem like much, such a gesture of international fellowship something the United States has historically enjoyed offering could signal the start of a new leader in the space race. I would remind the reader that since the retirement of the space shuttle, NASA has no primary vehicle for sending people into space. To get to the International Space Station, our own astronauts take a lift on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Russia isnt the only threat to American dominance of the race to Mars. A group of Dutch entrepreneurs plans to send a group of humans to the Red Planet one-way. The project, called Mars One, would be funded in part through a reality TV show chronicling the adventures of the travelers. Mars One is searching for volunteers from the public for the trip and has already collected 45,000 emails from interested parties. I expect this number will skyrocket as time progresses and the plans of Mars One come into fruition. Although Im hopeful for this initiative, the fact is no private enterprise has done so much as put a satellite in orbit of Mars. Even Russia has had problems with getting probes to Mars. It would seem NASA is still our best hope for getting humans to the planet. But why go to Mars at all? We have enough problems here, dont we? A manned trip to Mars would change everything. There is no greater force for good today than the exploration of the cosmos. A renewed interest in expansion would change a lot for the better, but more than anything, it would change the way we view ourselves. From Earth, Mars is just a pale, red dot. Imagine what Earth must look like from Mars. Imagine what a revolution in consciousness it would be to have one of our own, a representative of humanity, touch down on that world and behold our home, Earth, as nothing more than a pale, blue dot. Im not sure there is a more inspiring and humbling image: Look at how small we are. From a cosmic perspective, Earth is a very small place. But look at how far weve come: Our small, fragile bodies the seas of space and touch the sands of another world. That image is something that will more profoundly and positively change humanity than any laws, speeches or stimuli ever could. Mars or bust. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF.

He sang a few bars of it with actor Alan Cumming, who was the guest that episode, after calling out the hilarity and terribleness of Paisley.

FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NBAEight former Florida players will participate for seven teams in the 2013 NBA Playoffs. The postseason begins on Saturday.Poll QuestionWhich Florida sport will most likely win a national championship this season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Freshman Bridget Sloan has become one of Floridas top scoring gymnasts this season. See story, page 14.THE RALLY After Floridas 5-3 win at Florida Gulf Coast on Tuesday, the Gators are winners of six in a row as they travel to Columbia, Mo., this weekend to take on Missouri the 13thranked team in the Southeastern Conference. Josh Jurnovoy and Adam Pincus debate whether Floridas recent run of success is sustainable or merely a hot streak.s Josh: Florida (20-18, 8-7 SEC) has every right to be happy about the past two weeks. After a 2-0 loss to Mississippi State on April 6, the Gators were four games under .500 with their an FGCU team that swept them in Gainesville earlier in the season. Even though Florida won all of those games, that doesnt mean it is primed for a deep postseason run. The Gators have gotten a lot of help from the opposition hitting than it has to this point. Adam: What better teams are you talking SEC series at No. 3 LSU on May 2-4 are 17-43 in SEC play. Thats weaker than you in the gym, and thats giving those teams Missouri, Tennessee, Auburn and Georgia pretty for Florida this season. Most of UFs lead off an inning after grabbing a lead. It all happened, but it takes time for a young team to turn it around. While the Gators almost dug Josh: Theres no question the rest of the regular season sets up well for Florida, and itll tions to unreasonable heights for the postseawhile giving up no more than three runs. During their winning streak, the a start. For the season, theyve had three thon Crawford and one run allowed. With together in the SEC and NCAA Tournaments, the bullpen wont survive if the starters dont start giving it more of a rest. Adam: In a regional format, Ill take Floridas horse staff the Gators leaned on last season, regional from the bullpen. This Gators team isnt the same squad playing its way out of the postseason. This is a dangerous team with burgeoning talent at the plate and on the mound. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator. org. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator. org.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterInside the HP Pavilion center in San Jose, Calif., Bridget Sloan was vying for a spot on the U.S. Gymnastics team at the Olympic trials on June 28, 2012. Four years had passed since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Sloan was considered a veteran after competing on the silver medalwinning team in Beijing. She now faced younger U.S. gymnasts such as Jordyn Wieber and Gabby Douglas. A 20-year-old Bridget was the fourth-oldest of 15 gymnasts competing at the 2012 Olympic trials preliminaries that day. I remember waking up that morning feeling good, Sloan said. I was like All right, todays the day. Its trials. Sloan traveled to San Jose with her coach, Marvin Sharp, while her mother and father, Mary and Jeff Sloan, planned to arrive the evening Sharp, who has coached Bridget since she was four, knew her medical history before going to California. Bridget had suffered numerous injuries to her knees, ankles and arms since joining the U.S. national team in 2003. By the time we got to the summer of 2012, shed been training and competing for 10 years at that level, Sharp said. Sharp knew Bridget, the most decorated gymnast at trials, faced enormous pressure. She was the 2009 World Championships allaround champion, a six-time Visa Championship competitor and a Pan American Games gold medalist. She accomplished a lot I mean a lot more than 99 percent of the gymnasts out there, Sharp said. On the night before trials, while practicing her routine on uneven bars, Bridget released too soon on one of her favorite skills, the Church and realized she was off her mark when her toes came off the bar. I felt a little off when I was up there on the equipment, she said. mats. Her elbow ricocheted off of the sting mat just below her. Without any hesitation, she propped up, powdered her hands with chalk and prepared for another rotation. She skipped her release and performed her jump exclusively to try to avoid the pain that pierced through her arm. But she couldnt shake it. Meanwhile, Bridgets parents were en route to the HP Pavilion Center. A family friend reached out to Mary via text, worried by Bridgets injury. Unaware of the situation, her mother, Mary, couldnt make sense of it all. But any cause for concern was quickly dismissed. Marys friend followed up with a text that Bridget had moved on to balance beam. After consulting with USA Gymnastics medical coordinator Dr. Larry Nassar, Bridget returned to the balance beam and attempted a back handspring. Her arm, weak from her fall, collapsed. Clutching her elbow, Bridget turned to Sharp with a look of concern. I looked at Marvin and told him something wasnt right, Bridget said. Sloan convened with Dr. Nassar, who diagnosed Bridget with a bruised nerve in her elbow. it to the arena, Bridget called, urging them to meet her in the medical room just below the stadium. Bridget and Sharp felt it was in her best interest to forgo the remainder of the trials to avoid further injury to her elbow. That wasnt how we wanted to end our season, but we werent going to go out there and cause her anymore damage, and we didnt want to go out and have 16 falls and have that be her last memory, Sharp said. Bridgets announcement came one month before the London Olympics began, ending a career that took her from Pittsboro, Ind., to Beijing. (When I was) going through the MRI and X-Ray, and I realized that I was done... I started really appreciating gymnastics and what it offered me and what Ive been able to give back, Bridget said. In the weeks following her injury, Bridget took time to allow her elbow to heal. She worked closely with trainer Darrell Barnes in Indianapolis. Following rehab, she traveled to several gymnastics camps including Camp Woodward in Woodward, Pa., a camp she has coached at since 2009 and Flip Fest located in Crossville, Tenn. She kept herself very busy, Mary said. She kept herself focused on other things. At the camps she served as a ing from apparatus to apparatus, correcting back handsprings and bar swings. She began to sound like her coach of 16 years. People kept telling me I taught the way Marvin [Sharp] did, Bridget said. By the end of July, Bridget refocused her attention to selecting a college. She deferred endorsement money throughout her Elite career for a chance to compete collegiately. Her list had three schools: Utah, Georgia and Florida. With her deWorld Championships all-around titlist ever to compete collegiately. Utes coach Greg Marsden shared the same opinion of Bridget as other coaches: she was the most talented freshman going into college gymnastics. Everyone knew she was a bluechipper, said Marsden. She brings a great deal to a program with not only her abilities, but her personality, and everybody knew that and thats why we recruited her so hard. When Bridget called Rhonda Faehn to tell her she would become a Gator, there was no answer. On her second try, she got a hold of her new coach, who described Sloans commitment as a present. After falling 0.075 points short of winning the national championship at last years Super Six, the Gators nabbed Bridget, who made Florida a national title favorite in 2013. Sloan did not know what to expect at Florida. Her soon-to-be practices differed from the ones she was familiar with at the Elite level. Her teammates were skeptical, too. Junior Lauren Rose was unsure of Sloans personality. Performing alongside her was a former Olympian with enough competition hardI didnt know if she would acknowledge me, Rose said jokingly. And then again, I didnt know that we would become such good friends because shes so good. Admittedly, Sloan felt nervous throughout the teams preseason regiments until Floridas opening meet against Ball State on Jan. 4. Sloan competed on three events and took an outright win on vault her signature event. Since the postseason began, Sloan has performed her best yet. Sloan holds the NCAAs best regional qualifying score of 9.955 on uneven bars, and has won the event outright six times this season. On balance beam, she has a regional qualifying score of 9.92, second only to Oklahomas Taylor Spears score of 9.945. Bridget continued to impress at the Southeastern Conference Championships on March 23 in Little Rock, Ark. She earned a share of the SEC all-around title with a score of 39.75 following in the footsteps of teammate Kytra Hunter, who earned the title as a freshman in 2012. Her journey to Gainesville may have been littered with injuries, but as ever. Now, Bridget has a chance to get the Gators back to the Super Six today at 3 p.m. at the NCAA ChampiIm so glad that I kept my NCAA eligibility and came to Florida, Sloan said. And to be part of such a great team is such an honor.A New Chapter: Freshman overcomes injury at Olympic trialsJohn W.
