WHITNEY CONGRESSAlligator Contributing WriterHard work paid off for two former Gators. The Tampa Bay chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs recently agreed to pay Feathr, a smartphone app, $150,000 in four quarterly installments for 20 percent equity in the company, according to a press release. Former UF students Aidan Augustin and Neal Ormsbee, both 22, founded Feathr, which allows users to swap networking information in real time during conferences. Kunal Jain, president of TiE Tampa Bay, said he recognized the business opportunity when he heard it. It would cost him and three other TiE investors $150,000. venture of TiEs debut in Florida, Jain said. When I met [Augustin], I found him to be very energetic, he said. I quickly Augustin said he and Ormsbee dropped out of UF in 2012 during their senior year to take the startup company to the next level. Switching from the classic college lifestyle into now working 60 to 80 hours every week is exhausting, Augustin said. Neal and I had never worked that hard on anything in our lives. The investors helped Feathr advertise the app to conference organizers rather than individuals. By downloading the smartphone app provided by conferences, attendees will have the ability to cusmark their favorite contacts and connect with speakers via social media. Conference managers will have control to update scheduling and room assignments instantly, according to the apps website. Augustin said the money was necessary to continue to move forward and develop the app. accountable to people other than ourselves, he said.

Dr. Mark McIntosh, Shands Jacksonville Integrative Palliative Care medical director, said the foundation will distribute about $1 million to 72 nation-wide organizations committed to supporting cancer patients and their families. The Shands Arts in Medicine program in Gainesville will receive $15,000, which will go toward expanding and developing creativity workshops at the hospital, said Dylan Klempner, graduate programs adviser. As an artist-in-residence who holds two he will facilitate the workshops and enhance a program he started in 2011 called The Mobile supplies, he gives cancer patients a chance to make paintings, write poems and play instruments at their bedside. The $10,000 awarded to the Palliative Care program in Jacksonville will help the hospital participate in the Joint Commissions Ada standard of quality across various hospitals, McIntosh said. We made a push and outreach to the Gainesville community to support our cause, he said. The palliative care specialty grew out of the hospice movement. It provides psychosocial, spiritual, communication and symptom support to patients of all ages diagnosed with lifethreatening diseases. McIntosh said the program at Shands Jacksonville has seen about 1,100 participants each year since it opened about three years ago. Its not just about the high-tech. Its about the high-touch as well, McIntosh said. We are very concerned about patient and family care. Sarah Johnson said Shands is doing a great job reaching out to cancer and palliative care patients. The 21-year-old UF linguistics junior has been involved with Streetlight at Shands for more than a year, which has allowed her to develop relationships with young adults battling life-threatening illnesses. Johnson was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia her junior year of high school and has been in remission for four years. Regardless of whether its me or another volunteer who isnt a cancer survivor, the patients and their families are just really happy that we took the time out of our day to hang out with them because all they really want is a sense of normalcy, Johnson said.Shands wins LIVESTRONG grant Its not just about the high-tech.

For my last column, I wasnt sure what to write about. I knew I wanted to thank the people who tuned in on Tuesdays to read my column, so thank you for that. But something that happened this week changed the intent of this column from a schmaltzy everyone have a great summer piece into one last piss-and-vinegar rant. Heres what happened: I was working with a team of people and, after we had completed our task, a manager from the college blasted into the room looking upset, interrupted our meeting, and angrily began to point out mistakes we had made. Which is one thing. But the thing that rankled me was in the beginning of every few sentences, he would start with the words, Now, Im not upset but As in, Im not upset, but I am very pissed off. Or, Im not upset. I am just disappointed in all of you. Halfway through, it made me start wondering what in the world he was interpreting the words not upset to mean, because in If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, dont try to tell me its not a duck. Why couldnt he just admit to being upset? Nowadays, emotions are seen as a weakness in business. To be a leader, you must always be calm and collected, rational in punishment and conservative in praise. And to be hurt, embarrassed or angry is not a strong moment or an overreaction, and only a thick skin and an its not personal, its just business attitude will take you to the top. Find me a man or woman who can separate themselves that far from their emotions in their line of work, and I will present you with the worlds last unicorn. So clearly those are impossible standards, but it doesnt stop people from trying to follow them. Emotions arent things you can lock down, and they just come back in various passive-aggressive mannerisms. Often, this makes a reaction that could be reasonable and expected seem totally ridiculous. I have named it the Im Not Mad, Youre Just Stupid argument. If I wrote about sexism, discrimination and social controversies every week and then said, I never get angry about this stuff. I just want to show the world how low-brow and ridiculous its being, how much of a total jerk would I sound like? To act like you are not personally invested in your own reactions and words is a complete crock of bull, so at the very least, people should admit to them. Embarrassment might be the most potent starter of the Im Not Mad, Youre Just Stupid argument because no one likes admitting they are embarrassed. If you are in an argument with someone and getting an unreasonable amount of heat thrown your way, mentally check to see if something happened to cause the other person embarrassment. For my one last stand on the soap box, remember that emotions and rationality are not mutually exclusive occurrences, and the preference for one over the other doesnt make a good leader. Good leaders use emotions to fuel their drive and use And if you get upset, a lot of the time its better to say it, so at least people know where you are coming from. Tina Fey has a hilarious quote: Some people say Never let them see you cry. I say, if youre so mad you could just Good luck to all the seniors going out into the workplace.

Witherspoon, 37, one of Hollywoods most beloved celebrities, was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning in Atlanta, after arguing with police who stopped her husband James Toth on suspicion of drunken driving, reported Reuters. In a statement released late Sunday, the American actress said she could not go into detail about what happened, citing legal reasons, continued the report. But she added: I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said, Witherspoon said in the statemy husband, but that was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the the police and I am very sorry for my behavior. Yeah, but what was her behavior? Do you know my name? she asked the cop who arrested her, according to the Los Angeles Times, after she got in the way out who I am. We already know who you are, Reese Witherspoon. Youre Reese Witherspoon. Youre Americas sweetheart. Youre Legally Blonde. Youre Water for Elephants. Youre Walk the Line. Youre Sweet Home Alabama. Youre the mother of a child who you named Tennessee. You can do anything (for love). But you cant do that. Its a terrible thing to happen to someone with this sort of image. Shes not 22. Shes a mother of three. Thank God they didnt kill someone. Its a perfect storm of terrible: the time of night, the way shes reported to have behaved, and her using celebrity as a way out, said Janice Min, the editor-in-chief of the Hollywood Reporter, according to an article by USA Today. erspoon was the latest actress to be anointed Americas sweetheart, on the heels of Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts, continued the article. Yet in person, none of the three are sweetness and light. Ryan is quiet and introverted, Roberts has a biting wit to her and doesnt suffer fools. Suffer fools? Yeah, no one wants to suffer fools. That sounds awful. We hate entitlement, even when our favorite celebrities utilize it. Maybe even especially when celebrities do it. Lets learn some lessons, folks, yet again from celebrities acting awful: theyre just like us. 1. Dont get a tattoo, especially if it reads YOLO. 2. Verify all your information from your celebrity Twitter ac3. Dont pierce your cheeks, Amanda Bynes. It makes you look more crazy than you actually are. 4. Dont ever ask people if they know who you are. They most likely do, if youre a celebrity. The law just doesnt care. We can do it, guys.

TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 I hadnt talked to my mom in a while, and she, being the good mom she is, checked in with me. After a bit of a back and forth, the conversation ended with glad to know that youre OK. I dont know if OK is the right word for now. Not after the 2013 Boston Marathon. Weve experienced tragedies before, but this one seemed to strike deeper. Part of it was that this was in Boston. Not New York City, the ethnic melting pot that symbolizes Americas diversity. It wasnt Washington, D.C., our capital and governmental base of operations. In the words of John Tlumacki, the photographer who took what will probably end up as the iconic image of this tragedy displaya runner was on the ground, I think its haunting to see: this is Boston, this is Liberty. All of this happening with all are people a pile of injured people just laying in front of It didnt just hit our tradition of 117 marathons, though. It hit us in sports, one of our refuges from the real world. We use these events to get away from the doom and gloom of everyday life. Sporting events across Boston were canceled in response. Statistically, three deaths and 183 hospitalizations is tame compared to the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing (168 dead, hundreds more injured), but that is neither here nor there. Comparing tragedies just seems crass and disrespectful right now. But were going to. And at the same time well politicize this, just like all the other tragedies. Some of us already have. For all we know, it may have been politicized from the start. Once the story using bits and snippets from it to bolster whatever side of a debate were on. I always end up coming back to the idea it was a sporting event. The main phrase that has been running through my head the past few days is its not supposed to happen here. Not to us, as if our sports are sacred. I probably got that idea from growing up in the South, where college football is just as much a religion as any traditional denomination is. Thats what attacks like these are supposed to do, though. They shake our beliefs and challenge our convictions. We hesitate and allow doubt to creep in. So what now? Obviously the answer is move on, but how do we go about it? We insult those killed and injured if we dont change security levels, but we risk losing the escape if there are constant reminders of the big bad world. Maybe we should just end our collective suspension of disbelief. All of the concussion issues have started that process when it comes to football. It might just be a matter of time until that extends to all of our sports. Then I look at the Olympic Games. I look at international soccer. Theyve gone through extremist attacks. The Olympics and the World Cup are the two biggest sporting draws today despite the risks such large events pose. Well get past this, and well become better citizens, fans and people, whether its because of or in spite of this ordeal. Any other result is the most disrespectful outcome of all. Logan Ladnyk is a journalism junior at UF. His columns normally run on Fridays.Thoughts about the Boston tragedyColumnAs a semi-withdrawn gay man, I have never had the urge to open an account with Grindr, a social networking app tailored to the male-oriented orientations of the LGBTQ spectrum. With the help of Grindr, a gay, bi or bi-curious man can connect with the greater community geosocially, by literally locating other like-minded men within a close proximity to the user. Even though, in my opinion, the prospect of meeting my soulmate with the help of a cellphone application seems less than appealing, Grindr has become quite the pheUnfortunately, in recent years, Grindr has, for the most part, become a way of meeting men for a cheap hookup, and it is this dating service of sorts that brought to light a norm in the gay community that I had not actually considered, despite the fact that this malignant custom has touched my life over the years. Last month, a friend of mine gave me a tour of Grinthat, when describing their perfect match, read no femmes. This phrase got me thinking about my life and the presence of homophobia within the gay community that is largely geared toward those who exhibit more feminine tendencies. Although it is, in many ways, human nature to apply a hierarchical component to people or things, this sort of discrimination is unacceptable, and, frankly, unhelpful to the cause of equality. Yet, this hateful rhetoric is not just present in the Grindr community, but in the greater gay community as well. This issue of internalized homophobia not only unearths the presence of harmful hierarchies within a subjugated group, but also begs the question: Why are female characteristics seen as less desirable in every facet of life? The notion of hegemonic masculinity, or the Western perception that there is a singular, true type of masculinity upon which all other constructions are measured, leaves every other group women, many ethnic minorities and a large chunk of the homosexual community subjugated without warrant. Thus, those men who display characteristics that do not fall within this narrow view of masculinity are discriminated against by those who see themselves as representative of the archetypal masculinity, even if those men are gay. Unfortunately, this notion of untarnished, societally acceptable masculinity trumps group solidarity, leaving a diverse sphere like the gay community fragmented and ridden with animosity. As a feminine gay man, I am able to provide a couple of instances in which this discrimination has affected my life and the way in which I view myself. Ever since I was young, I have exhibited many characteristics that most would deem feminine. I have a high-pitched voice, a slight build, and my mannerisms are anything but masculine. Thus, this discrimination, albeit subtle, has touched my life in more than a few tangible ways. I have been told on countless occasions that I am just too feminine, and my potential mate was looking for someone with a bit more strength and manly vigor. (Yes, that is a quote.) Yet, whenever I encountered phrases like these, I never considered the terrible damage it was doing subconsciously. These vile words negatively affected my self-esteem as a newly initiated member of the LGBTQ community, and I imagine these discriminatory slurs have the same effect on other gay teens who are looking for acceptance, particularly among other LGBTQ youth. I think, psychologically, I understood their critiques. I mean, why would a guy want to be with a man who is nurturing, patient and gentle? In many ways, I agreed with their criticisms. This sort of thinking is perhaps the most dangerous aspect of this entire practice: These ners of society due to their nonconformist qualities, and to also be diminished by those within the community with which you identify can be devastating. I am lucky enough to be able to internalize all the hate I encounter every day from those within and without my community however, some are not so thick skinned. In my mind, the best way to combat this norm is to understand that the gay community is completely different when compared to the straight community. Thus, the qualities that are associated with a straight relationship should not be superimposed upon a gay partnership. Men do not have to be strong and reserved, and there does not need to be a male partner and a female partner. Perhaps the most infuriating question I receive from others about my sexuality is, So, are you the woman in the relationship? I mean, for hecks sake, I am not looking to be in a conventional male-female-style relationship. That is why I am gay. Therefore, it is our duty, as gay men and women, to educate people, to help them understand we are an extremely diverse community, brimming with feminine people and masculine people and everything in between. This educating process must start from within. If we want others to accept us for who we are, we This internal discrimination is not only harmful to ones self worth, but it also affects how the gay community is perceived by those that do not use an L, G, B, T or Q to describe their sexuality. To borrow a quote from the ever beautiful and exceedingly wise RuPaul of Drag Race fame: If you dont love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else? And with the burgeoning practice of discrimination from within the gay community, I think this quote has never been timelier.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 Javier Edwards / AlligatorCAITLIN RADDATZAlligator Contributing WriterShe no longer searches for close parking spaces. After her heart attack in July, Kelly Reid, a UF College of Nursing program assistant, understands the importance of walking. Now, she makes sure to walk at least 15 minutes daily. Walking is less stressful on our bodies, yet I think its doing the same thing you. It reduces your stress level. Reid is right. Walking can lower peoples risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes as much as running, according to an American Heart Association journal. Apart from previous studies, researchers assessed 15,045 walkers and 33,060 runners, aged 18 to 80 years old, by distance instead of time. Researchers found the same energy used for moderate-intensity walking and vigorous-intensity running resulted in similar reductions in risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and possibly coronary heart disease. health services research doctoral student, is familiar with the data released by the association. She said the information is positive, but there are no baseline characteristics, which make up an individuals starting point. If youre looking at this, you would think that walking is better than running, she said, and that is not necessarily the case. Runners are getting twice as much exercise, but running is also harder. been an increase in good health for either group. Its a win-win, really, she said. New study shows benefits of walking for heart diseaseLIFESTYLE MICHELLE LEUTEAlligator Contributing WriterDangerous bacteria like Salmonella, Listeria, Staph and E. coli were found on beer pong balls by Clemson University students in the Fall, according to The Associated Press. It was found that bacteria from the balls ended up in the beer. The students who conducted the study found 3 million bacteria on beer pong balls from outdoor games and 200 bacteria on balls from games played on carpet. Michele Headley, a 22-year-old UF health science senior, said shes only played the game a few times. Headley said when she played beer pong, players would have cups full of beer and a water cup to rinse the ball off when it fell on the ground. She said she found the process stupid because there would still be tons of bacteria in the water cup. Unlike Headley, Pedro Macellaro plays beer pong more frequently. The 21-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering senior said he plays at least twice a month. Macellaro said he thinks playing outside is healthier than playing indoors because grass might have less bacteria than carpet. Macellaro doesnt dwell on the bacteria too much, though. Sometimes, you just have to forget about it to have fun, he said. Walking is less stressful on our bodies, yet I think its doing the same thing as running.UF College of Nursing program assistant

TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 SEVEN STUDENTS WILL REPRESENT THE SCHOOL. KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterA group of P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School students will face off against more than 800 teams from about 25 countries to solve tough problems in the most creative manner possible. Seven students will travel to Michigan State University to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals from May 22 to May 25. J. L. Kirby, a social studies teacher and head coach of the team, said he liked how the schools program teaches students collaboration and creative thinking. He added the philosophy of the competition the nature of the school. I think P.K. has a lot of advantages, he said. Theres a big push on math and sciences, which is part of the [program], and also places a large push on the arts that some schools dont have. Each team is judged on its creativity in solving various technical problems, such as building structures in an eightminute skit. The teams have a limited $125 to $145 budget for props and building materials. The teams are also given a spontaneous problem to solve, which are much shorter than the eight minutes for skits. Joey McGinn, a 16-year-old P.K. Yonge sophomore and said he likes how the program teaches different perspectives when tackling a problem. Theres always going to be another way to look at it, he said.P.K. Yonge students set sights on international competitionKirby COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterSome UF web services were down for two hours Monday. The password reset service and myinvestiGator, which allows faculty to submit research reports for federal and state grants, experienced an outoversees CASHNet and student modules, was also down. All services were restored by 1:20 p.m. UF Information Technology Communications Manager Tracy Gale said the HTML code was not loading corAnyone who was trying to make a payment through CASHNet encountered problems. The information, however, was displayed correctly. Nobody saw a bill for $1,000 when it was just $10, she said. Gale said the disruption came from something that went wrong during regular system maintenance Sunday morning, but she doesnt yet know Associate Controller for UFs Bursar Ruth Harris noticed the CASHNet system wasnt working Monday morning. She said she did not receive any complaints from students or faculty about the outage. Contact Colleen Wright at cwright@ alligator.org. UF systems back onlineCAMPUS

and Jay Carmichael have each had starts where they went 5.1 innings with no runs or 5.2 innings with one run, but Crawford is the only starter to throw a quality start this season, and he has just three. No one else has even gone six innings in a start. In 2012, the Gators had twice that number of quality starts through only 19 games. At this point, they had three different starters combine to throw eight quality starts. Thus, there was reason to believe there would be more of those starts later in the year as Crawford got more consistent time. Carmichael, who had a stretch where he gave up just three runs in 16.1 innings before a mediocre start against Ole Miss and an arm injury, could still return to form, but he wouldnt be joining two pitchers as experienced and effective as Brian Johnson and Hudson Randall as Crawford did a year ago. Bobby Poyner has started the last two midweek games both UF wins and will likely get the nod again tonight as Florida (22-19) hosts USF (26-14) at 7. Poyner went four innings against FSU and 5.1 against FGCU and gave up one run in each outing. If Poyner can continue to stretch himself out and the other starters do the same, the Gators might avoid working their bullpen to death before postseason play.

I havent seen a hitter have a week like that with the power shes displayed and the number of RBIs. Tofft hit mainly for average at Northern Illinois, launching only eight home runs in her two years in DeKalb, Ill.

JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer Noami Santos-Lamb is healthy and ready to get going. In two years at Florida, one of PrepVolleyball.coms former Senior Aces has yet to show off her talent during the course of an entire season. She spent the majority of her freshman season on the bench, and a torn ACL ended her sophomore season prematurely. After surgery and months of rehab, Santos-Lamb is back. Noami Santos-Lamb is really close to being completely cleared, coach Mary Wise said. Shes back on the court in a limited capacity, but she is back on the court in closed drills. Shes allowed to jump and hit. Now healthy, Santos-Lamb aims to follow in the footsteps of the players that kept her on the bench as a freshman. Santos-Lamb was one of three outside hitters on Floridas roster in 2011. The other two were seniors Kristy Jaeckel and Stephanie Ferrell. Jaeckel, an All-American, and Ferrell missed only three sets combined all season. The duo tallied 651 kills between them, leading Florida to a 27-6 record and an Elite Eight appearance. Santos-Lamb struggled to crack the lineup, recording 11 kills in only 20 sets during her freshman season. Jaeckel, Ferrell and four other Gators left Florida following the 2011 season, opening the door for Santos-Lamb to become a sophomore penciled in as one of Floridas starting outside hitters after a promising offseason. You come in with the mindset of working hard and trying to earn the spot to start, Santos-Lamb said August 16. You just have to go out there and give it your all. You get out of it what you put into it. However, Santos-Lambs efforts to make a bigger impact as a sophomore fell through when she suffered an ACL tear in her left knee during an intra-squad scrimmage on August 18. Eight days before the Gators 2012 season opener, Santos-Lamb was relegated to the sidelines. [Santos-Lamb] had an awesome spring and stayed here the entire summer, Wise said on August 27. She was lighting it up and by far the best player on the court during that scrimmage. In Santos-Lambs absence, Ziva Recek emerged as a playmaker at outside hitter last season. She was named AVCA Freshman of the Year and Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year after leading Florida with 440 kills in 2012. With Recek and Santos-Lamb both in the lineup, Wise is happy with what she has at outside hitter. Every indication is that come August, when we start August 10, that Noami will be back on the court, which is really good news, Wise said.

But the Gators adrenaline turning into an 18-goal drubbing of the fourth-ranked Wildcats was a surprising twist. Its just a testament to all of our seniors how we played on Saturday, OLeary said. Senior Brittany Dashiell added after the game: I keep on telling myself, Did we really just win by 18 goals? This must be a dream. The Gators performance earned them the No. 1 overall seed in the American Lacrosse Conference tournament that begins on May 2 in Baltimore. That was awesome, senior defender Sam Farrell said. We termined on our last regular seawerent leaving with a loss. Although Saturdays blowout surprised some, OLeary said her team set a new standard. It would be really nice to see that performance each and every game, OLeary said. I think now pect it. Floridas 13 seniors will be critical in sustaining that high level of play.

WHITNEY CONGRESSAlligator Contributing WriterHard work paid off for two former Gators. The Tampa Bay chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs recently agreed to pay Feathr, a smartphone app, $150,000 in four quarterly installments for 20 percent equity in the company, according to a press release. Former UF students Aidan Augustin and Neal Ormsbee, both 22, founded Feathr, which allows users to swap networking information in real time during conferences. Kunal Jain, president of TiE Tampa Bay, said he recognized the business opportunity when he heard it. It would cost him and three other TiE investors $150,000. venture of TiEs debut in Florida, Jain said. When I met [Augustin], I found him to be very energetic, he said. I quickly Augustin said he and Ormsbee dropped out of UF in 2012 during their senior year to take the startup company to the next level. Switching from the classic college lifestyle into now working 60 to 80 hours every week is exhausting, Augustin said. Neal and I had never worked that hard on anything in our lives. The investors helped Feathr advertise the app to conference organizers rather than individuals. By downloading the smartphone app provided by conferences, attendees will have the ability to cusmark their favorite contacts and connect with speakers via social media. Conference managers will have control to update scheduling and room assignments instantly, according to the apps website. Augustin said the money was necessary to continue to move forward and develop the app. accountable to people other than ourselves, he said. The investors are pushing us to deliver, and that is great.Former UF students get investors for mobile app CAMPUSS ALYSSA NIEVESAlligator Contributing WriterAfter an application process and a two-weeklong public voting period, UFs Shands Arts in Medicine program and the Shands Jacksonville Medical Center were named LIVESTRONG Foundation grant recipients last week. Dr. Mark McIntosh, Shands Jacksonville Integrative Palliative Care medical director, said the foundation will distribute about $1 million to 72 nation-wide organizations committed to supporting cancer patients and their families. The Shands Arts in Medicine program in Gainesville will receive $15,000, which will go toward expanding and developing creativity workshops at the hospital, said Dylan Klempner, graduate programs adviser. As an artist-in-residence who holds two he will facilitate the workshops and enhance a program he started in 2011 called The Mobile supplies, he gives cancer patients a chance to make paintings, write poems and play instruments at their bedside. The $10,000 awarded to the Palliative Care program in Jacksonville will help the hospital participate in the Joint Commissions Ada standard of quality across various hospitals, McIntosh said. We made a push and outreach to the Gainesville community to support our cause, he said. The palliative care specialty grew out of the hospice movement. It provides psychosocial, spiritual, communication and symptom support to patients of all ages diagnosed with lifethreatening diseases. McIntosh said the program at Shands Jacksonville has seen about 1,100 participants each year since it opened about three years ago. Its not just about the high-tech. Its about the high-touch as well, McIntosh said. We are very concerned about patient and family care. Sarah Johnson said Shands is doing a great job reaching out to cancer and palliative care patients. The 21-year-old UF linguistics junior has been involved with Streetlight at Shands for more than a year, which has allowed her to develop relationships with young adults battling life-threatening illnesses. Johnson was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia her junior year of high school and has been in remission for four years. Regardless of whether its me or another volunteer who isnt a cancer survivor, the patients and their families are just really happy that we took the time out of our day to hang out with them because all they really want is a sense of normalcy, Johnson said.Shands wins LIVESTRONG grant Its not just about the high-tech.

For my last column, I wasnt sure what to write about. I knew I wanted to thank the people who tuned in on Tuesdays to read my column, so thank you for that. But something that happened this week changed the intent of this column from a schmaltzy everyone have a great summer piece into one last piss-and-vinegar rant. Heres what happened: I was working with a team of people and, after we had completed our task, a manager from the college blasted into the room looking upset, interrupted our meeting, and angrily began to point out mistakes we had made. Which is one thing. But the thing that rankled me was in the beginning of every few sentences, he would start with the words, Now, Im not upset but As in, Im not upset, but I am very pissed off. Or, Im not upset. I am just disappointed in all of you. Halfway through, it made me start wondering what in the world he was interpreting the words not upset to mean, because in If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, dont try to tell me its not a duck. Why couldnt he just admit to being upset? Nowadays, emotions are seen as a weakness in business. To be a leader, you must always be calm and collected, rational in punishment and conservative in praise. And to be hurt, embarrassed or angry is not a strong moment or an overreaction, and only a thick skin and an its not personal, its just business attitude will take you to the top. Find me a man or woman who can separate themselves that far from their emotions in their line of work, and I will present you with the worlds last unicorn. So clearly those are impossible standards, but it doesnt stop people from trying to follow them. Emotions arent things you can lock down, and they just come back in various passive-aggressive mannerisms. Often, this makes a reaction that could be reasonable and expected seem totally ridiculous. I have named it the Im Not Mad, Youre Just Stupid argument. If I wrote about sexism, discrimination and social controversies every week and then said, I never get angry about this stuff. I just want to show the world how low-brow and ridiculous its being, how much of a total jerk would I sound like? To act like you are not personally invested in your own reactions and words is a complete crock of bull, so at the very least, people should admit to them. Embarrassment might be the most potent starter of the Im Not Mad, Youre Just Stupid argument because no one likes admitting they are embarrassed. If you are in an argument with someone and getting an unreasonable amount of heat thrown your way, mentally check to see if something happened to cause the other person embarrassment. For my one last stand on the soap box, remember that emotions and rationality are not mutually exclusive occurrences, and the preference for one over the other doesnt make a good leader. Good leaders use emotions to fuel their drive and use And if you get upset, a lot of the time its better to say it, so at least people know where you are coming from. Tina Fey has a hilarious quote: Some people say Never let them see you cry. I say, if youre so mad you could just Good luck to all the seniors going out into the workplace. To everyone else, see you in Fall. Lauren Flannery is a business administration sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Tuesdays.Beware anyone who doesnt admit their emotions during argumentsIllegally Blonde: Reese Witherspoon disappointed us allPoor Reese Witherspoon. Witherspoon, 37, one of Hollywoods most beloved celebrities, was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning in Atlanta, after arguing with police who stopped her husband James Toth on suspicion of drunken driving, reported Reuters. In a statement released late Sunday, the American actress said she could not go into detail about what happened, citing legal reasons, continued the report. But she added: I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said, Witherspoon said in the statemy husband, but that was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the the police and I am very sorry for my behavior. Yeah, but what was her behavior? Do you know my name? she asked the cop who arrested her, according to the Los Angeles Times, after she got in the way out who I am. We already know who you are, Reese Witherspoon. Youre Reese Witherspoon. Youre Americas sweetheart. Youre Legally Blonde. Youre Water for Elephants. Youre Walk the Line. Youre Sweet Home Alabama. Youre the mother of a child who you named Tennessee. You can do anything (for love). But you cant do that. Its a terrible thing to happen to someone with this sort of image. Shes not 22. Shes a mother of three. Thank God they didnt kill someone. Its a perfect storm of terrible: the time of night, the way shes reported to have behaved, and her using celebrity as a way out, said Janice Min, the editor-in-chief of the Hollywood Reporter, according to an article by USA Today. erspoon was the latest actress to be anointed Americas sweetheart, on the heels of Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts, continued the article. Yet in person, none of the three are sweetness and light. Ryan is quiet and introverted, Roberts has a biting wit to her and doesnt suffer fools. Suffer fools? Yeah, no one wants to suffer fools. That sounds awful. We hate entitlement, even when our favorite celebrities utilize it. Maybe even especially when celebrities do it. Lets learn some lessons, folks, yet again from celebrities acting awful: theyre just like us. 1. Dont get a tattoo, especially if it reads YOLO. 2. Verify all your information from your celebrity Twitter ac3. Dont pierce your cheeks, Amanda Bynes. It makes you look more crazy than you actually are. 4. Dont ever ask people if they know who you are. They most likely do, if youre a celebrity. The law just doesnt care. We can do it, guys.

TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 I hadnt talked to my mom in a while, and she, being the good mom she is, checked in with me. After a bit of a back and forth, the conversation ended with glad to know that youre OK. I dont know if OK is the right word for now. Not after the 2013 Boston Marathon. Weve experienced tragedies before, but this one seemed to strike deeper. Part of it was that this was in Boston. Not New York City, the ethnic melting pot that symbolizes Americas diversity. It wasnt Washington, D.C., our capital and governmental base of operations. In the words of John Tlumacki, the photographer who took what will probably end up as the iconic image of this tragedy displaya runner was on the ground, I think its haunting to see: this is Boston, this is Liberty. All of this happening with all are people a pile of injured people just laying in front of It didnt just hit our tradition of 117 marathons, though. It hit us in sports, one of our refuges from the real world. We use these events to get away from the doom and gloom of everyday life. Sporting events across Boston were canceled in response. Statistically, three deaths and 183 hospitalizations is tame compared to the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing (168 dead, hundreds more injured), but that is neither here nor there. Comparing tragedies just seems crass and disrespectful right now. But were going to. And at the same time well politicize this, just like all the other tragedies. Some of us already have. For all we know, it may have been politicized from the start. Once the story using bits and snippets from it to bolster whatever side of a debate were on. I always end up coming back to the idea it was a sporting event. The main phrase that has been running through my head the past few days is its not supposed to happen here. Not to us, as if our sports are sacred. I probably got that idea from growing up in the South, where college football is just as much a religion as any traditional denomination is. Thats what attacks like these are supposed to do, though. They shake our beliefs and challenge our convictions. We hesitate and allow doubt to creep in. So what now? Obviously the answer is move on, but how do we go about it? We insult those killed and injured if we dont change security levels, but we risk losing the escape if there are constant reminders of the big bad world. Maybe we should just end our collective suspension of disbelief. All of the concussion issues have started that process when it comes to football. It might just be a matter of time until that extends to all of our sports. Then I look at the Olympic Games. I look at international soccer. Theyve gone through extremist attacks. The Olympics and the World Cup are the two biggest sporting draws today despite the risks such large events pose. Well get past this, and well become better citizens, fans and people, whether its because of or in spite of this ordeal. Any other result is the most disrespectful outcome of all. Logan Ladnyk is a journalism junior at UF. His columns normally run on Fridays.Thoughts about the Boston tragedyColumnAs a semi-withdrawn gay man, I have never had the urge to open an account with Grindr, a social networking app tailored to the male-oriented orientations of the LGBTQ spectrum. With the help of Grindr, a gay, bi or bi-curious man can connect with the greater community geosocially, by literally locating other like-minded men within a close proximity to the user. Even though, in my opinion, the prospect of meeting my soulmate with the help of a cellphone application seems less than appealing, Grindr has become quite the pheUnfortunately, in recent years, Grindr has, for the most part, become a way of meeting men for a cheap hookup, and it is this dating service of sorts that brought to light a norm in the gay community that I had not actually considered, despite the fact that this malignant custom has touched my life over the years. Last month, a friend of mine gave me a tour of Grinthat, when describing their perfect match, read no femmes. This phrase got me thinking about my life and the presence of homophobia within the gay community that is largely geared toward those who exhibit more feminine tendencies. Although it is, in many ways, human nature to apply a hierarchical component to people or things, this sort of discrimination is unacceptable, and, frankly, unhelpful to the cause of equality. Yet, this hateful rhetoric is not just present in the Grindr community, but in the greater gay community as well. This issue of internalized homophobia not only unearths the presence of harmful hierarchies within a subjugated group, but also begs the question: Why are female characteristics seen as less desirable in every facet of life? The notion of hegemonic masculinity, or the Western perception that there is a singular, true type of masculinity upon which all other constructions are measured, leaves every other group women, many ethnic minorities and a large chunk of the homosexual community subjugated without warrant. Thus, those men who display characteristics that do not fall within this narrow view of masculinity are discriminated against by those who see themselves as representative of the archetypal masculinity, even if those men are gay. Unfortunately, this notion of untarnished, societally acceptable masculinity trumps group solidarity, leaving a diverse sphere like the gay community fragmented and ridden with animosity. As a feminine gay man, I am able to provide a couple of instances in which this discrimination has affected my life and the way in which I view myself. Ever since I was young, I have exhibited many characteristics that most would deem feminine. I have a high-pitched voice, a slight build, and my mannerisms are anything but masculine. Thus, this discrimination, albeit subtle, has touched my life in more than a few tangible ways. I have been told on countless occasions that I am just too feminine, and my potential mate was looking for someone with a bit more strength and manly vigor. (Yes, that is a quote.) Yet, whenever I encountered phrases like these, I never considered the terrible damage it was doing subconsciously. These vile words negatively affected my self-esteem as a newly initiated member of the LGBTQ community, and I imagine these discriminatory slurs have the same effect on other gay teens who are looking for acceptance, particularly among other LGBTQ youth. I think, psychologically, I understood their critiques. I mean, why would a guy want to be with a man who is nurturing, patient and gentle? In many ways, I agreed with their criticisms. This sort of thinking is perhaps the most dangerous aspect of this entire practice: These ners of society due to their nonconformist qualities, and to also be diminished by those within the community with which you identify can be devastating. I am lucky enough to be able to internalize all the hate I encounter every day from those within and without my community however, some are not so thick skinned. In my mind, the best way to combat this norm is to understand that the gay community is completely different when compared to the straight community. Thus, the qualities that are associated with a straight relationship should not be superimposed upon a gay partnership. Men do not have to be strong and reserved, and there does not need to be a male partner and a female partner. Perhaps the most infuriating question I receive from others about my sexuality is, So, are you the woman in the relationship? I mean, for hecks sake, I am not looking to be in a conventional male-female-style relationship. That is why I am gay. Therefore, it is our duty, as gay men and women, to educate people, to help them understand we are an extremely diverse community, brimming with feminine people and masculine people and everything in between. This educating process must start from within. If we want others to accept us for who we are, we This internal discrimination is not only harmful to ones self worth, but it also affects how the gay community is perceived by those that do not use an L, G, B, T or Q to describe their sexuality. To borrow a quote from the ever beautiful and exceedingly wise RuPaul of Drag Race fame: If you dont love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else? And with the burgeoning practice of discrimination from within the gay community, I think this quote has never been timelier.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 Javier Edwards / AlligatorCAITLIN RADDATZAlligator Contributing WriterShe no longer searches for close parking spaces. After her heart attack in July, Kelly Reid, a UF College of Nursing program assistant, understands the importance of walking. Now, she makes sure to walk at least 15 minutes daily. Walking is less stressful on our bodies, yet I think its doing the same thing you. It reduces your stress level. Reid is right. Walking can lower peoples risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes as much as running, according to an American Heart Association journal. Apart from previous studies, researchers assessed 15,045 walkers and 33,060 runners, aged 18 to 80 years old, by distance instead of time. Researchers found the same energy used for moderate-intensity walking and vigorous-intensity running resulted in similar reductions in risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and possibly coronary heart disease. health services research doctoral student, is familiar with the data released by the association. She said the information is positive, but there are no baseline characteristics, which make up an individuals starting point. If youre looking at this, you would think that walking is better than running, she said, and that is not necessarily the case. Runners are getting twice as much exercise, but running is also harder. been an increase in good health for either group. Its a win-win, really, she said. New study shows benefits of walking for heart diseaseLIFeESTYLeE MICHELLE LEUTEAlligator Contributing WriterDangerous bacteria like Salmonella, Listeria, Staph and E. coli were found on beer pong balls by Clemson University students in the Fall, according to The Associated Press. It was found that bacteria from the balls ended up in the beer. The students who conducted the study found 3 million bacteria on beer pong balls from outdoor games and 200 bacteria on balls from games played on carpet. Michele Headley, a 22-year-old UF health science senior, said shes only played the game a few times. Headley said when she played beer pong, players would have cups full of beer and a water cup to rinse the ball off when it fell on the ground. She said she found the process stupid because there would still be tons of bacteria in the water cup. Unlike Headley, Pedro Macellaro plays beer pong more frequently. The 21-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering senior said he plays at least twice a month. Macellaro said he thinks playing outside is healthier than playing indoors because grass might have less bacteria than carpet. Macellaro doesnt dwell on the bacteria too much, though. Sometimes, you just have to forget about it to have fun, he said. Walking is less stressful on our bodies, yet I think its doing the same thing as running.UF College of Nursing program assistant

TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 SEVEN STUDENTS WILL REPRESENT THE SCHOOL. KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterA group of P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School students will face off against more than 800 teams from about 25 countries to solve tough problems in the most creative manner possible. Seven students will travel to Michigan State University to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals from May 22 to May 25. J. L. Kirby, a social studies teacher and head coach of the team, said he liked how the schools program teaches students collaboration and creative thinking. He added the philosophy of the competition the nature of the school. I think P.K. has a lot of advantages, he said. Theres a big push on math and sciences, which is part of the [program], and also places a large push on the arts that some schools dont have. Each team is judged on its creativity in solving various technical problems, such as building structures in an eightminute skit. The teams have a limited $125 to $145 budget for props and building materials. The teams are also given a spontaneous problem to solve, which are much shorter than the eight minutes for skits. Joey McGinn, a 16-year-old P.K. Yonge sophomore and said he likes how the program teaches different perspectives when tackling a problem.

and Jay Carmichael have each had starts where they went 5.1 innings with no runs or 5.2 innings with one run, but Crawford is the only starter to throw a quality start this season, and he has just three. No one else has even gone six innings in a start. In 2012, the Gators had twice that number of quality starts through only 19 games. At this point, they had three different starters combine to throw eight quality starts. Thus, there was reason to believe there would be more of those starts later in the year as Crawford got more consistent time. Carmichael, who had a stretch where he gave up just three runs in 16.1 innings before a mediocre start against Ole Miss and an arm injury, could still return to form, but he wouldnt be joining two pitchers as experienced and effective as Brian Johnson and Hudson Randall as Crawford did a year ago. Bobby Poyner has started the last two midweek games both UF wins and will likely get the nod again tonight as Florida (22-19) hosts USF (26-14) at 7. Poyner went four innings against FSU and 5.1 against FGCU and gave up one run in each outing. If Poyner can continue to stretch himself out and the other starters do the same, the Gators might avoid working their bullpen to death before postseason play.

I havent seen a hitter have a week like that with the power shes displayed and the number of RBIs. Tofft hit mainly for average at Northern Illinois, launching only eight home runs in her two years in DeKalb, Ill. But she showed off her power against Longwood last weekend, hitting three homers, including one that was headed for Museum Road The ball was stopped by the top of a tree. She hit a couple mammoth home runs, Walton said. one to the pull side. Tofft fell just a single short of the cycle in Game 2 of the Gators series against the Lancers. She got the hardest hits a double, a home run and a Tofft came up in the sixth inning and hit one back to pitcher Ashley Cornell. Cornell threw home to get Aubree Munro at the plate trying to score, allowing Tofft choice, ending her chance for a cycle. I didnt even think about that, Tofft said, but I guess that wouldve been cool. After playing for two Huskies teams that went a combined 45-61, Tofft is glad to be playing for a contending Florida is currently the top team in the SEC and is poised to make a deep postseason run with Tofft hitting the way she is as the starting third baseman.

JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer Noami Santos-Lamb is healthy and ready to get going. In two years at Florida, one of PrepVolleyball.coms former Senior Aces has yet to show off her talent during the course of an entire season. She spent the majority of her freshman season on the bench, and a torn ACL ended her sophomore season prematurely. After surgery and months of rehab, Santos-Lamb is back. Noami Santos-Lamb is really close to being completely cleared, coach Mary Wise said. Shes back on the court in a limited capacity, but she is back on the court in closed drills. Shes allowed to jump and hit. Now healthy, Santos-Lamb aims to follow in the footsteps of the players that kept her on the bench as a freshman. Santos-Lamb was one of three outside hitters on Floridas roster in 2011. The other two were seniors Kristy Jaeckel and Stephanie Ferrell. Jaeckel, an All-American, and Ferrell missed only three sets combined all season. The duo tallied 651 kills between them, leading Florida to a 27-6 record and an Elite Eight appearance. Santos-Lamb struggled to crack the lineup, recording 11 kills in only 20 sets during her freshman season. Jaeckel, Ferrell and four other Gators left Florida following the 2011 season, opening the door for Santos-Lamb to become a sophomore penciled in as one of Floridas starting outside hitters after a promising offseason. You come in with the mindset of working hard and trying to earn the spot to start, Santos-Lamb said August 16. You just have to go out there and give it your all. You get out of it what you put into it. However, Santos-Lambs efforts to make a bigger impact as a sophomore fell through when she suffered an ACL tear in her left knee during an intra-squad scrimmage on August 18. Eight days before the Gators 2012 season opener, Santos-Lamb was relegated to the sidelines. [Santos-Lamb] had an awesome spring and stayed here the entire summer, Wise said on August 27. She was lighting it up and by far the best player on the court during that scrimmage. In Santos-Lambs absence, Ziva Recek emerged as a playmaker at outside hitter last season. She was named AVCA Freshman of the Year and Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year after leading Florida with 440 kills in 2012. With Recek and Santos-Lamb both in the lineup, Wise is happy with what she has at outside hitter. Every indication is that come August, when we start August 10, that Noami will be back on the court, which is really good news, Wise said.

No. 2 Florida defeated the defending national champion Northwestern 22-4. The four goals marked the lowest-scoring output from the Wildcats in 10 years and the most lopsided loss ever suffered by Northwestern. pen, coach Amanda OLeary said. season home game, emotions were high. But the Gators adrenaline turning into an 18-goal drubbing of the fourth-ranked Wildcats was a surprising twist. Its just a testament to all of our seniors how we played on Saturday, OLeary said. Senior Brittany Dashiell added after the game: I keep on telling myself, Did we really just win by 18 goals? This must be a dream. The Gators performance earned them the No. 1 overall seed in the American Lacrosse Conference tournament that begins on May 2 in Baltimore. That was awesome, senior defender Sam Farrell said. We termined on our last regular seawerent leaving with a loss. Although Saturdays blowout surprised some, OLeary said her team set a new standard. It would be really nice to see that performance each and every game, OLeary said. I think now pect it. Floridas 13 seniors will be critical in sustaining that high level of play. The seniors have combined to score 157 of the teams 265 goals this season 59 percent of the teams offensive output.
