Miami men building modern ark MIAMI In the beginning, the one in Genesis that cleansed the world of evil but the rising waters that swamped the Gulf Coast during Hurricane Katrina. As survivors and aid workers coped with the death and devastation, animals struggled, too. They foraged for food and wandered in search of a home. Those images touched something deep inside Rodolfo Almira. He dreamed of creating a refuge for animals facing catastrophe. Then it came to him: Wouldnt it be nice to do what Noah did? And why not right here on the rugged western frontier of Miami-Dade? It could be a draw for tourists, a haven for Gods creatures, a testament to his faith, and a place So it came to pass that Almira and three other Hialeah men began building an ark just west of town, doing it from a biblical template, converting cubits roughly the distance between the elbow and the tip of the middle ments. rounded by lakes that got their start as rock quarries, a moonscape where work boots quickly get caked with dust kicked up by the trucks that constitute most of Six months into their quest, the lowest deck of the three-story wooden ark is nearly complete.

LOCAL ELISE GIORDANOAlligator WriterNEWBERRY The bugle rang through the early morning. Soldiers, clad in Civil War uniforms, emerged from their tents and huddled around the campsite trying to stay warm. As 1st Sgt.

Food poisoning is on the rise in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions survey of foodborne illnesses. Campylobacter, a type of bacteria found in chicken and unpasteurized milk and cheese, is becoming more common. Salmonella is the most common cause of food poisoning. Anthony Dennis, director of environmental health at the Alachua County Health Department, said as of this year, the department has not had to investigate any facilities for foodborne outbreaks. He said if the health department gets multiple complaints from the same establishment, they would have to investigate. We go out there as a health department to track it down and see where it came from and if there is a risk, Dennis said. Janis Mena, a registered dietician at the UF Student Health Care Center, said food poisoning can occur from two to four hours or up to 12 hours after eating. It depends on the severity and the bug, she said. The best way to avoid most foodborne illnesses, she said, is to wash your hands.

We are all scattered in the pain and horror of this weeks violence, he said in an article by CNN about the service. Some of those here were among those injured. But everyone has been affected.

And please dont jump on us for using the word insanity as if were using the word too loosely or start berating us about the mental health care opportunities in this country.

Lets take a deep breath and move forward. Its a new week.This is the end, my only friends, the end. Weve done it: another school year come and gone bating in the parking lot behind Leonardos. For me, its the last one. This time two weeks from now, Ill be a college graduate. Ive gotten a lot of help from a lot of people on the way to this point, so I want to use this space to thank them. First, Id like to thank Sami Main, the Alligators opinions editor, for supporting me even when various Internet commenters called in no uncertain terms for my rape, murder earlier this semester, she wrote a kick-a-editorial backing It probably wouldve been easy for her to disown me, print a retraction and go on like nothing happened. Instead, she laughed with me at the haters and sent them a love letter with more snark than a Lewis Carroll poem. Everyone needs to remember the name Sami Main because 10 years from now shes gonna be working with Tina Fey while less people. That reminds me: I need to thank everyone whos ever toine Walker, which explains why Im eternally broke. So many people have been there for me at one time or another, in ways both big and small, it amazes me. Maybe it was just buying me a burger or paying me $50 to lay mulch for a day or letting me borrow rent money while I was waiting on a paycheck. I dont have enough space here to list everyone or to fully express how much its meant to me to be the recipient of this wonderful outpouring, but just know: If youve ever given me money or food or helped me in any other way, I wont forget. Maybe someday Ill be not broke, and then, boy, things are gonna turn around for you and ol Dallin. Until then, you kinda have to settle for old-fashioned, heartfelt gratitude. Lastly, Id like to thank every professor whos dealt with the headache that is having me in a class. Im a self-important a--hole of my own abilities. I like to write really ambitious papers, and I dont always succeed, so what I turn in is often a terrible version of an essay that ends with me basically saying, I tried, and I failed. Oops. I cant imagine having to grade my s---. So thanks for putting up with me, teach! Beyond that, Ive learned an astonishing amount about literature, philosophy and life from all of you. If I have one piece of advice for young underclassmen or incoming collegians, its this: Listen to your profs. Theyve been around the allegorical block, theyve written a lot and read a lot more, and theyve got some ideas thatll change the way you see everything. Ill never forget the day Dr. Shoaf told me, Singularity is analogous to insanity, or You know, a man can buy a degree, but he cant buy an education. Thats the truest thing Ive learned in college. Theres a way to get through without learning anything: Trust me, Ive seen it done and did it for a while. It wasnt until I started reading the material, listening in class and really thinking about what I was learning that college started to make sense to me. as much information about them as possible and then pick the ones you like best. Dont be scared of thinking! Its never bad to have an open mind. Anyway, this is supposed to be an opinion column even though most of the time I kinda just ramble incoherently about nothing because Im an incorrigible jacka--.

MONDAY, APRIL 22, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 The current Supreme Court debate over the constitutionality of Californias Proposition 8 has captivated the hearts and minds of the American people, and strident voices on both sides of the issue have been making themselves known more boldly Christian, I am expected to be a steadfast opponent of marriage equality, and its because of this that people are often surprised to learn nothing could be further from the truth. In my four years as a religion major, Ive studied the Bible extensively and discovered it doesnt say much about same-sex relationships. In fact, its possible to count the number of references to homosexuality on two hands, an indication it wasnt that important of a topic for the authors of the Bible. In the Old Testament, injunctions against homosexual practice occur alongside laws 12) and wearing clothing woven from two sense when one views the Levitical law as Israels means of distinguishing itself from its pagan neighbors. For the priestly authors of Leviticus, then, breaking one of these statutes was not committing an ethical wrong but a ritual one. In the New Testament, references to homosexuality are conspicuously absent in the teachings of Jesus and primarily referred to male prostitution and pederasty in the letters of Paul. These practices were common in the Greek world at the time and are a far cry from the kind of monogamous relationships we think of today when we talk about same-sex relationships. Going beyond the realm of Biblical studies, anyone who has studied Christian history knows gays are just another group in a en, African-Americans, etc.) Christians have persecuted over the years by misusing and misinterpreting the Bible. But a bunch of scholarly literature about the Bible and homosexuality wasnt what made me a supporter of LGBT rights. It was one of the most fundamental aspects of my faith loving relationships. It was only when I heard some of the heartbreaking stories told by gay men and women that I really came to understand how serious an issue this was. from someone elses point of view when you build up barriers by living in a world dominated by theory and rhetoric, a world devoid of any notion of dialogue and true understanding. How can you judge something you dont really understand? Particularly touching was the story of a gay Christian who had contemplated suicide because he thought God had made a mistake when he made him. One need not be a Christian to realize just how toxic a theology this is. Put frankly, I believe in a God of love, one who accepts us and loves us for who we are. When I hear stories like this, I wonder if the Christians who convinced this young man he was an abomination ever stopped to think if what they were doing felt like love, whether it felt like Jesus. I sciously choose a life of persecution, so we are left to contend with the cold, hard fact that being gay is not a choice and if its not a choice, how can God punish someone for being who they really are? justice and for the dignity of all people gay or straight, black or white, Hindu or Muslim. Just like we are all equal in the eyes of God, we should all be equal in the eyes of the law. All Christians are supposed to strive to live like Jesus, right? So, like Jesus, lets stand with the marginalized and oppressed. Like Jesus, lets be advocates for love and human dignity. down like waters, and righteousness like an Jordan Kassabaum is a classical studies and religion senior at UF.Why this Christian supports marriage equality Guest columnJordan KassabaumSpeaking Out I was raised on the notion that and passion, no job or goal is out of reach. When I came to UF, I learned that in Student Government, this is not the case. Certain positions are doled out based on organizational dents while making members of the paper. On Tuesday, the Student Senate heard Swamp Party president-elect Christina Bonarrigos nominations for the executive branch. Many of nominations stood out as crony appointments based on organizational membership, a practice commonly known as legacy positions. The positions in question? The paid top spots of Accent Speakers Bureau and Student Government Productions, which have a comin student money. It is well-documented that leadership in Accent and SGP is almost always given to members of Alpha Epsilon Pi and Theta Chi fraternities. Twenty of the last 23 Accent chairmen have been brothers in AEPi, and eight of the last 10 chairmen of SGP were members of Theta Chi. The Swamp Partys nominees this year were no different. This situation presents two problems. First, it is fundamentally unfair for any student to receive preferential treatment because of his or her We all gained admission to UF positions should be evaluated no differently. All students deserve a fair shot to earn any position offered at this university. Another problem with legacy positions is they prevent the most campus. When the potential pool of applicants is limited to two fraconsideration. The Student Body is best served by a large applicant pool with many coronation of the next person in line. Not only are these positions paid, but they tin Hayes column from April 17, we heard how Accent withholds the best seats in the house from everyday students, saving them for Accent members and other imin some way with the SG majority party). Its easy to see how cronyism in selecting these leaders can become cronyism during their time in ofThe Student Body should demand better from both the actions of these student leaders and the process by which they are selected.

UF ONLY ADMITS TRANSFER AND INNOVATION ACADEMY STUDENTS FOR SPRING. KELSEY WONDERLINAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough other schools are increasing freshmen Spring admissions, UF is not. During the last few years, more and more colleges, like the University of Southern California, have been sending acceptance letters for the Spring semester to students who applied for the Fall semester, according to an article in The New York Times. However, UF undergraduate Spring admissions are exclusively for transfer students, said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. UF has seen a small increase in Spring transfer students, accepting about 50 more students each year for the past three years. The exception to limiting Spring admission is the option for freshmen to apply for UFs Innovation Academy, which offers an alternate undergraduate experience with a Spring-Summer schedule and an emphasis on innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and ethics, Orlando said. Italo Lenta, operations coordinator for the Innovation Academy, said it allows more students to become Florida Gators. According to the UF about 30,000 prospective students apply each year for one of about 6,500 available spots in UFs Fall class. Every year, UF has to turn away thousands of talented students, Lenta said. The Innovation Academy allows the university to take more cream off the top of the crop. Orlando said with more students taking classes in the Summer semesters, the academy also makes use of facilities that were previously underused. Brittany Van Voorhees, a 20-year-old UF telecommunication sophomore, said a program like the Innovation Academy would probably have been helpful to her in adjusting to UF as a freshman. She said she had such a negative experience she almost transferred to another school. Pressured by her parents to head straight to Gainesville and start at Santa Fe College in the Fall of 2011, she said never got to experience living on campus and struggled to meet people. Unlike Voorhees experience, the new undergraduate program is apparently well-accepted by students. Orlando said the academy received between 2,500 and 3,000 applications for next years class, up from about 1,500 applications received for this years inaugural class. Although students in the academy wont be mester, Lenta said they can use this time to study abroad, do service projects, or get internships or jobs. He said many students choose to work or intern in Gainesville during the Fall so they can still go to football games and familiarize themselves with the campus and resources. They have the free time to become a part of the community here and learn what theyre interested in before they start classes, Lenta said.UF not springing on admissions

ADAM PINCUS Florida fell behind for the third straight game against Missouri. Unlike the previous two contests, The Tigers (12-23, 5-13 Southeastern Conference) plated two runs off right-hander Tucker Sunday afternoon at Taylor Stadium in Columbia, Mo., to snap the Gators (22-19, 10-8 SEC) eight-game winning streak. Simpson allowed two runs in 2.2 innings during UFs 8-2 loss. The Florida offense wasted a chance to score in the fourth inning with runners on second and third with no outs. A strikeout, promising start to the fourth and changed the game. I thought that was the ball game to be quite honest with you, coach Kevin OSullivan said. It was a shame. We needed to put the ball in play. Freshman left-hander Parker Danciu replaced Simpson with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the third. He induced an inning-ending ground ball to second baseman Casey Turgeon from catcher Dylan Kelly. Before the ninth, Taylor Gushues solo home run off left-hander Jake Walsh marked Floridas only run. Brady Roberson scored on a groundball from Turgeon in the ninth for UFs second run on Sunday. Walsh allowed just three base runners in 3.2 innings of relief for the victory. Right-hander John Miles earned his second save with a seven-out appearance. Missouri scored two runs in wasnt a sharp performance from Florida without the solid defense and effective bullpen that ning streak. Seven base runners reached on two-strike counts with three of those two-strike hits and a hesitant throw on a double play opportunity by third baseman Zack Powers led to two runs there was plenty to be happy about. Florida has won three of its last four conference series. We had a heck of a ball game [on Saturday] and came out here with a win in a 15-inning ball game with a lot of guys contributing, OSullivan said. We came from behind on Friday against a really good Friday night pitcher. All in all it was a successful weekend. Magliozzi closes in on school record: It took longer than usual on Saturday for Johnny Magliozzi to pick up his 11th save of the season. in the 15th but he also walked a batter, allowed a hit and threw a wild pitch. He stranded the tying and game-winning runs. Florida hosts South Florida (26-14) Tuesday night at 7. Magliozzi sits two saves shy of the single season school record set by Danny Wheeler in 1994 and Josh Fogg in 1998. Its not always going to be 1-2-3. I wouldnt trade Mags for anybody in the country, OSullivan said Saturday night. I think thats his 11th save on the year. He wants the ball. With the game on the line like that, I wouldnt want anybody else having the ball for us. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

Missouri snapped UFs eight-game winning streak on Sunday. Missouri snaps Floridas eight-game winning streakSOFTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEIN After three mediocre starts against Mississippi State and Kentucky, Hannah Rogers had something to prove. The junior right-hander had surrendered 11 earned runs in her three previous games, dogs on April 7. But Rogers put any doubts to rest in No. 3 Floridas 8-0 run-rule victory against Longwood on Sunday at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. Rogers completed the No. 3 Gators (45-5, 14-4 Southeastern Conference) sweep of the Lancers (33-14, 13-5 Big South Conference) like all my pitches were working. The past couple weeks, Ive just been struggling a bit with some of my pitches. Rogers had one of her best outings of the nings without walking a batter. The lone blemish on Rogers line came in the third inning when Longwood center ror by shortstop Katie Medina. The error was career perfect game. I think she was a quick runner, Rogers said. I went up to Katie and told her, Thank you for taking the error for me. If she would have got the ball, she might have had a chance to beat it out, and then they could have got a hit. Rogers otherwise silenced a lineup that had three batters hitting over .400 coming into the weekend, including catcher Megan Baltzell, who leads the NCAA with 23 home runs. Longwoods got a good swinging team, coach Tim Walton said. They can hit the ball. The top three hitters in the Lancers lineup Kori Nishitomi, Baltzell and Brooke Short went 5 for 27 over the weekend. Against Rogers, the trio went 2 for 16. Rogers no-hitter came just a day after she dominated the Lancers in a complete-game victory in the series opener. On Saturday, Rogers allowed a run while striking out 11 in the Gators 5-1 win. Rogers commanded her pitches well against Longwood, striking out 19 batters in her two games without issuing a free pass. The no-hitter was Rogers second of the contributed to UFs combined perfect game against Presbyterian on March 3. The last time a Florida pitcher threw two solo no-hitters was Stacey Nelson, who held against Arkansas and Ole Miss hitless in 2009. But while the Lancers struggled to get the bat on the ball, the Gators bats came alive, scoring 22 runs in the series. Third baseman Stephanie Tofft led the offensive barrage, going 8 for 10 at the plate with three home runs, two doubles and a triple. The junior drove in nine runs during the weekend, raising her batting average from .282 to .319, the second-highest on the team. Its been a while since Ive felt like this, Tofft said. Added Walton: I havent seen a hitter have a week like that.

Miami men building modern ark MIAMI In the beginning, the one in Genesis that cleansed the world of evil but the rising waters that swamped the Gulf Coast during Hurricane Katrina. As survivors and aid workers coped with the death and devastation, animals struggled, too. They foraged for food and wandered in search of a home. Those images touched something deep inside Rodolfo Almira. He dreamed of creating a refuge for animals facing catastrophe. Then it came to him: Wouldnt it be nice to do what Noah did? And why not right here on the rugged western frontier of Miami-Dade? It could be a draw for tourists, a haven for Gods creatures, a testament to his faith, and a place So it came to pass that Almira and three other Hialeah men began building an ark just west of town, doing it from a biblical template, converting cubits roughly the distance between the elbow and the tip of the middle ments. rounded by lakes that got their start as rock quarries, a moonscape where work boots quickly get caked with dust kicked up by the trucks that constitute most of Six months into their quest, the lowest deck of the three-story wooden ark is nearly complete.

LOCAL ELISE GIORDANOAlligator WriterNEWBERRY The bugle rang through the early morning. Soldiers, clad in Civil War uniforms, emerged from their tents and huddled around the campsite trying to stay warm. As 1st Sgt. Walter Cook took out a list of names, the men stood at attention next to their tents and tried to wipe the sleep off their faces.

Food poisoning is on the rise in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions survey of foodborne illnesses. Campylobacter, a type of bacteria found in chicken and unpasteurized milk and cheese, is becoming more common. Salmonella is the most common cause of food poisoning. Anthony Dennis, director of environmental health at the Alachua County Health Department, said as of this year, the department has not had to investigate any facilities for foodborne outbreaks. He said if the health department gets multiple complaints from the same establishment, they would have to investigate. We go out there as a health department to track it down and see where it came from and if there is a risk, Dennis said. Janis Mena, a registered dietician at the UF Student Health Care Center, said food poisoning can occur from two to four hours or up to 12 hours after eating. It depends on the severity and the bug, she said. The best way to avoid most foodborne illnesses, she said, is to wash your hands.

We are all scattered in the pain and horror of this weeks violence, he said in an article by CNN about the service. Some of those here were among those injured. But everyone has been affected.

There were other services Sunday in Boston, continued the article. Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders gathered for ish line. A week ago, it was a place of carnage. On Sunday, it became a sanctuary an open-air church, synagogue, mosque and temple, rolled all into one. What we can do now, in order to not focus on the tragedy, is to focus on healing the communities affected by the sheer insanity of last week. And please dont jump on us for using the word insanity as if were using the word too loosely or start berating us about the mental health care opportunities in this country.

Lets take a deep breath and move forward. Its a new week.This is the end, my only friends, the end. Weve done it: another school year come and gone bating in the parking lot behind Leonardos. For me, its the last one. This time two weeks from now, Ill be a college graduate. Ive gotten a lot of help from a lot of people on the way to this point, so I want to use this space to thank them. First, Id like to thank Sami Main, the Alligators opinions editor, for supporting me even when various Internet commenters called in no uncertain terms for my rape, murder earlier this semester, she wrote a kick-a-editorial backing It probably wouldve been easy for her to disown me, print a retraction and go on like nothing happened. Instead, she laughed with me at the haters and sent them a love letter with more snark than a Lewis Carroll poem. Everyone needs to remember the name Sami Main because 10 years from now shes gonna be working with Tina Fey while less people. That reminds me: I need to thank everyone whos ever toine Walker, which explains why Im eternally broke. So many people have been there for me at one time or another, in ways both big and small, it amazes me. Maybe it was just buying me a burger or paying me $50 to lay mulch for a day or letting me borrow rent money while I was waiting on a paycheck. I dont have enough space here to list everyone or to fully express how much its meant to me to be the recipient of this wonderful outpouring, but just know: If youve ever given me money or food or helped me in any other way, I wont forget. Maybe someday Ill be not broke, and then, boy, things are gonna turn around for you and ol Dallin. Until then, you kinda have to settle for old-fashioned, heartfelt gratitude. Lastly, Id like to thank every professor whos dealt with the headache that is having me in a class. Im a self-important a--hole of my own abilities. I like to write really ambitious papers, and I dont always succeed, so what I turn in is often a terrible version of an essay that ends with me basically saying, I tried, and I failed. Oops. I cant imagine having to grade my s---. So thanks for putting up with me, teach! Beyond that, Ive learned an astonishing amount about literature, philosophy and life from all of you. If I have one piece of advice for young underclassmen or incoming collegians, its this: Listen to your profs. Theyve been around the allegorical block, theyve written a lot and read a lot more, and theyve got some ideas thatll change the way you see everything. Ill never forget the day Dr. Shoaf told me, Singularity is analogous to insanity, or You know, a man can buy a degree, but he cant buy an education. Thats the truest thing Ive learned in college. Theres a way to get through without learning anything: Trust me, Ive seen it done and did it for a while. It wasnt until I started reading the material, listening in class and really thinking about what I was learning that college started to make sense to me. as much information about them as possible and then pick the ones you like best. Dont be scared of thinking! Its never bad to have an open mind. Anyway, this is supposed to be an opinion column even though most of the time I kinda just ramble incoherently about nothing because Im an incorrigible jacka--.

MONDAY, APRIL 22, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 The current Supreme Court debate over the constitutionality of Californias Proposition 8 has captivated the hearts and minds of the American people, and strident voices on both sides of the issue have been making themselves known more boldly Christian, I am expected to be a steadfast opponent of marriage equality, and its because of this that people are often surprised to learn nothing could be further from the truth. In my four years as a religion major, Ive studied the Bible extensively and discovered it doesnt say much about same-sex relationships. In fact, its possible to count the number of references to homosexuality on two hands, an indication it wasnt that important of a topic for the authors of the Bible. In the Old Testament, injunctions against homosexual practice occur alongside laws 12) and wearing clothing woven from two sense when one views the Levitical law as Israels means of distinguishing itself from its pagan neighbors. For the priestly authors of Leviticus, then, breaking one of these statutes was not committing an ethical wrong but a ritual one. In the New Testament, references to homosexuality are conspicuously absent in the teachings of Jesus and primarily referred to male prostitution and pederasty in the letters of Paul. These practices were common in the Greek world at the time and are a far cry from the kind of monogamous relationships we think of today when we talk about same-sex relationships. Going beyond the realm of Biblical studies, anyone who has studied Christian history knows gays are just another group in a en, African-Americans, etc.) Christians have persecuted over the years by misusing and misinterpreting the Bible. But a bunch of scholarly literature about the Bible and homosexuality wasnt what made me a supporter of LGBT rights. It was one of the most fundamental aspects of my faith loving relationships. It was only when I heard some of the heartbreaking stories told by gay men and women that I really came to understand how serious an issue this was. from someone elses point of view when you build up barriers by living in a world dominated by theory and rhetoric, a world devoid of any notion of dialogue and true understanding. How can you judge something you dont really understand? Particularly touching was the story of a gay Christian who had contemplated suicide because he thought God had made a mistake when he made him. One need not be a Christian to realize just how toxic a theology this is. Put frankly, I believe in a God of love, one who accepts us and loves us for who we are. When I hear stories like this, I wonder if the Christians who convinced this young man he was an abomination ever stopped to think if what they were doing felt like love, whether it felt like Jesus. I sciously choose a life of persecution, so we are left to contend with the cold, hard fact that being gay is not a choice and if its not a choice, how can God punish someone for being who they really are? justice and for the dignity of all people gay or straight, black or white, Hindu or Muslim. Just like we are all equal in the eyes of God, we should all be equal in the eyes of the law. All Christians are supposed to strive to live like Jesus, right? So, like Jesus, lets stand with the marginalized and oppressed. Like Jesus, lets be advocates for love and human dignity. down like waters, and righteousness like an Jordan Kassabaum is a classical studies and religion senior at UF.Why this Christian supports marriage equality Guest columnJordan KassabaumSpeaking Out I was raised on the notion that and passion, no job or goal is out of reach. When I came to UF, I learned that in Student Government, this is not the case. Certain positions are doled out based on organizational dents while making members of the paper. On Tuesday, the Student Senate heard Swamp Party president-elect Christina Bonarrigos nominations for the executive branch. Many of nominations stood out as crony appointments based on organizational membership, a practice commonly known as legacy positions. The positions in question? The paid top spots of Accent Speakers Bureau and Student Government Productions, which have a comin student money. It is well-documented that leadership in Accent and SGP is almost always given to members of Alpha Epsilon Pi and Theta Chi fraternities. Twenty of the last 23 Accent chairmen have been brothers in AEPi, and eight of the last 10 chairmen of SGP were members of Theta Chi. The Swamp Partys nominees this year were no different. This situation presents two problems. First, it is fundamentally unfair for any student to receive preferential treatment because of his or her We all gained admission to UF positions should be evaluated no differently. All students deserve a fair shot to earn any position offered at this university. Another problem with legacy positions is they prevent the most campus. When the potential pool of applicants is limited to two fraconsideration. The Student Body is best served by a large applicant pool with many coronation of the next person in line. Not only are these positions paid, but they tin Hayes column from April 17, we heard how Accent withholds the best seats in the house from everyday students, saving them for Accent members and other imin some way with the SG majority party). Its easy to see how cronyism in selecting these leaders can become cronyism during their time in ofThe Student Body should demand better from both the actions of these student leaders and the process by which they are selected.

UF ONLY ADMITS TRANSFER AND INNOVATION ACADEMY STUDENTS FOR SPRING. KELSEY WONDERLINAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough other schools are increasing freshmen Spring admissions, UF is not. During the last few years, more and more colleges, like the University of Southern California, have been sending acceptance letters for the Spring semester to students who applied for the Fall semester, according to an article in The New York Times. However, UF undergraduate Spring admissions are exclusively for transfer students, said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. UF has seen a small increase in Spring transfer students, accepting about 50 more students each year for the past three years. The exception to limiting Spring admission is the option for freshmen to apply for UFs Innovation Academy, which offers an alternate undergraduate experience with a Spring-Summer schedule and an emphasis on innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and ethics, Orlando said. Italo Lenta, operations coordinator for the Innovation Academy, said it allows more students to become Florida Gators. According to the UF about 30,000 prospective students apply each year for one of about 6,500 available spots in UFs Fall class. Every year, UF has to turn away thousands of talented students, Lenta said. The Innovation Academy allows the university to take more cream off the top of the crop. Orlando said with more students taking classes in the Summer semesters, the academy also makes use of facilities that were previously underused. Brittany Van Voorhees, a 20-year-old UF telecommunication sophomore, said a program like the Innovation Academy would probably have been helpful to her in adjusting to UF as a freshman. She said she had such a negative experience she almost transferred to another school. Pressured by her parents to head straight to Gainesville and start at Santa Fe College in the Fall of 2011, she said never got to experience living on campus and struggled to meet people. Unlike Voorhees experience, the new undergraduate program is apparently well-accepted by students. Orlando said the academy received between 2,500 and 3,000 applications for next years class, up from about 1,500 applications received for this years inaugural class. Although students in the academy wont be mester, Lenta said they can use this time to study abroad, do service projects, or get internships or jobs. He said many students choose to work or intern in Gainesville during the Fall so they can still go to football games and familiarize themselves with the campus and resources. They have the free time to become a part of the community here and learn what theyre interested in before they start classes, Lenta said.UF not springing on admissions

ADAM PINCUS Florida fell behind for the third straight game against Missouri. Unlike the previous two contests, The Tigers (12-23, 5-13 Southeastern Conference) plated two runs off right-hander Tucker Sunday afternoon at Taylor Stadium in Columbia, Mo., to snap the Gators (22-19, 10-8 SEC) eight-game winning streak. Simpson allowed two runs in 2.2 innings during UFs 8-2 loss. The Florida offense wasted a chance to score in the fourth inning with runners on second and third with no outs. A strikeout, promising start to the fourth and changed the game. I thought that was the ball game to be quite honest with you, coach Kevin OSullivan said. It was a shame. We needed to put the ball in play. Freshman left-hander Parker Danciu replaced Simpson with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the third. He induced an inning-ending ground ball to second baseman Casey Turgeon from catcher Dylan Kelly. Before the ninth, Taylor Gushues solo home run off left-hander Jake Walsh marked Floridas only run. Brady Roberson scored on a groundball from Turgeon in the ninth for UFs second run on Sunday. Walsh allowed just three base runners in 3.2 innings of relief for the victory. Right-hander John Miles earned his second save with a seven-out appearance. Missouri scored two runs in wasnt a sharp performance from Florida without the solid defense and effective bullpen that ning streak. Seven base runners reached on two-strike counts with three of those two-strike hits and a hesitant throw on a double play opportunity by third baseman Zack Powers led to two runs there was plenty to be happy about. Florida has won three of its last four conference series. We had a heck of a ball game [on Saturday] and came out here with a win in a 15-inning ball game with a lot of guys contributing, OSullivan said. We came from behind on Friday against a really good Friday night pitcher. All in all it was a successful weekend. Magliozzi closes in on school record: It took longer than usual on Saturday for Johnny Magliozzi to pick up his 11th save of the season. in the 15th but he also walked a batter, allowed a hit and threw a wild pitch. He stranded the tying and game-winning runs. Florida hosts South Florida (26-14) Tuesday night at 7. Magliozzi sits two saves shy of the single season school record set by Danny Wheeler in 1994 and Josh Fogg in 1998. Its not always going to be 1-2-3. I wouldnt trade Mags for anybody in the country, OSullivan said Saturday night. I think thats his 11th save on the year. He wants the ball. With the game on the line like that, I wouldnt want anybody else having the ball for us. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

Missouri snapped UFs eight-game winning streak on Sunday. Missouri snaps Floridas eight-game winning streakSOFTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEIN After three mediocre starts against Mississippi State and Kentucky, Hannah Rogers had something to prove. The junior right-hander had surrendered 11 earned runs in her three previous games, dogs on April 7. But Rogers put any doubts to rest in No. 3 Floridas 8-0 run-rule victory against Longwood on Sunday at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. Rogers completed the No. 3 Gators (45-5, 14-4 Southeastern Conference) sweep of the Lancers (33-14, 13-5 Big South Conference) like all my pitches were working. The past couple weeks, Ive just been struggling a bit with some of my pitches. Rogers had one of her best outings of the nings without walking a batter. The lone blemish on Rogers line came in the third inning when Longwood center ror by shortstop Katie Medina. The error was career perfect game. I think she was a quick runner, Rogers said. I went up to Katie and told her, Thank you for taking the error for me. If she would have got the ball, she might have had a chance to beat it out, and then they could have got a hit. Rogers otherwise silenced a lineup that had three batters hitting over .400 coming into the weekend, including catcher Megan Baltzell, who leads the NCAA with 23 home runs. Longwoods got a good swinging team, coach Tim Walton said. They can hit the ball. The top three hitters in the Lancers lineup Kori Nishitomi, Baltzell and Brooke Short went 5 for 27 over the weekend. Against Rogers, the trio went 2 for 16. Rogers no-hitter came just a day after she dominated the Lancers in a complete-game victory in the series opener. On Saturday, Rogers allowed a run while striking out 11 in the Gators 5-1 win. Rogers commanded her pitches well against Longwood, striking out 19 batters in her two games without issuing a free pass. The no-hitter was Rogers second of the contributed to UFs combined perfect game against Presbyterian on March 3. The last time a Florida pitcher threw two solo no-hitters was Stacey Nelson, who held against Arkansas and Ole Miss hitless in 2009. But while the Lancers struggled to get the bat on the ball, the Gators bats came alive, scoring 22 runs in the series. Third baseman Stephanie Tofft led the offensive barrage, going 8 for 10 at the plate with three home runs, two doubles and a triple. The junior drove in nine runs during the weekend, raising her batting average from .282 to .319, the second-highest on the team. Its been a while since Ive felt like this, Tofft said. Added Walton: I havent seen a hitter have a week like that.
