A UF public relations senior who prefers to remain anonymous said she has taken amphetamines as a study aid. Im not a big fan of it, because it doesnt really do much for me, said the 22-year-old. It provides a little bit of focus, but not enough to be taking a drug. Miller said people not only students do not realize that there can be negative consequences associated with sharing prescription drugs. If youre taking any sort of medicine that hasnt been prescribed for you, then you dont know how your body is going to interact with that, she said. Miller said it is healthier to use time management skills, study strategies and campus resources to help with studying and work that need to be done not drugs. You have to remind students that you might feel that its harmless and helps you get through a couple of things, she said. But you really havent learned how to deal with stressors in a positive and healthy way. According to the poll, 18 percent of students said their schools have programs dealing with students using drugs as study aids. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffBill Williams, 65, of Flagler Beach, strolls past Karma Cream, a Gainesville coffee shop on University Avenue that sells vegan delicacies. A new study shows that vegetarians, on average, live longer. AN ALL-VEGGIE DIET HAS A BETTER IMPACT ON MEN. ALANNA MASSEYAlligator Contributing WriterEveryone knows eating green can make you lean, but a study shows it lead to a longer life, too. Researchers at Loma Linda University in California recently conducted a study with more than 73,000 participants and determined vegetarians had a 12 percent lower chance of early death than meateaters. tive effects, said Wendy Dahl, an assistant professor in UFs food science and human nutrition department. We know that with many chronic diseases, part of the cause is our eating habits. The study found a vegetarian on men than women. In general, all recommendations point to consuming more plant foods and less animal products, particularly red meat, Dahl said. Its partly about what the vegetarians arent eating, but its also about what they are eating. Vegetarian diets contain higher other nutrients, she said. Michaela Bisienere, a 19-year-old UF journalism sophomore, said she hasnt eaten meat for about three years due to health reasons. When she made the diet change, she noticed an increase in energy. It forces me to pay a lot of attention to things that I eat and plan out my meals better, Bisienere said. UF marketing junior Julia Witten, 20, has been a vegetarian since the beginning of the year. She said she eats black beans, spinach, tofu, cheese and eggs to get the nutrients she once got from meat. Jeff Greenhouse, a 21-year-old UF environmental science senior, became a vegetarian at age 11. He was having stomach issues, and his doctor suggested that he stop eating meat. I have been considering trying to eat certain things without getting sick, but I havent done that yet, Greenhouse said. The study is giving me a reason not to try eating meat again.Vegetarians have lower chance of early death, study saysSTUDENT GOVERNMENT JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff WriterTuesdays Student Senate meeting got heated during a discussion of online voting but ended smoothly with amended activity and service fee budget. A committee on election code reform discussed the proposal last week at its meeting and is due to vote on it today. Several people, including former Sen. Carly Wilson, spoke in favor of online voting. District D Sen. Helie Dharia said it can be hard for time and transportation to come to UF to vote. She added that the bill doesnt guarantee implementation or voting from phones it only makes it theoretically possible. There are absolutely issues with the current voting system, but its our job as senators to work with the Supervisor of Elections and IT during public debate.

THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 CAMPUS CLAIRE FULLERAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers have created tiny, unmanned airplanes and submarines that can travel inside hurricanes and collect data in real time. The miniature vehicles will gather information on storms strength and paths, said Kamran Mohseni, a UF professor who worked on the project. The problem is getting the accuracy, intensity and trajectory of a hurricane predicted well, Mohseni said. We noticed that the mentality of researchers direction and thought we could use the hurricane. The 6-inch airplanes and submarines are equipped with several sensors, a radio transmitter, a GPS, a processor and a motor. Each airplane weighs about 80 grams, which is a little heavier than an egg. The vehicles, which are controlled by computers, are launched into the air or water and act as debris that the hurricane can toss around. To develop the submarines, Mohseni and his team of 20 graduate students studied the The team has a squid care-and-testing facility to research movement patterns and sensory systems. The airplanes and submarines have not been tested in an actual hurricane yet. They have, however, gone through hurricane simulations using real data. Doug Lipinski, a postdoctoral researcher in UFs Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, played a large role in the simulation part of the project. We used data from Hurricane Rita, which hit in 2005, Lipinski said. That data was fairly incomplete, though, so we performed simuwith a high-resolution data set, and from there you can observe how the vehicles would work in a hurricane. Mohseni said the team hopes to continue testing the vehicles and eventually implement UF team creates tiny, stormtesting airplanes and subs NATHANIEL REED WON.

KATHLEEN BOYLE Avenue WriterIt was a hot and humid summer night in Gainesville, but an irregular breeze and large cumulus clouds offered those hitting the pavement an appreciated relief from the typical Florida mugginess weve grown accustomed to bearing. Juxtaposed with the weather was the lively vibe adrift throughout downtown Gainesville last Friday night. The weekend buzz that usually encompasses the neighborhood was in effect but was further escalated by the presence of Artwalk Gainesville. A free self-guided tour from 7 to 10 p.m. on the last Friday of every month, Artwalk Gainesville has become a local event that brings the public together in celebration of local visual art talent. Various artists from Gainesville and outlying regional towns come together to share their work in downtown galleries, nightlife venues and booths set up on Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The result is an unexpected mix of talent a reminder of the truly inseeking outlets for artistic expression. Attendees can pick up a free map that outlines the various festivities taking place throughout town available both at the Artwalk booth and the events website: www.artwalkgainesville. com. Morgan Motes, a 15-year-old sophomore from Palatka High School, exhibited his artwork for day. Although he is years younger than many of the other artists at this event, Motes proved age does not matter in talent capability. His paintings demonstrate crossover illustration and offer insight into My art is all about high school angst, Motes said as he stood beside a table that exhibited a portion of his portfolio. Each piece has its own story that has to do with whatevers going on with my life. I do about a piece a week and try to incorporate my life in each Though Artwalk attracts artists and supporters from all age groups -proving that Gainesville social events extend beyond the traditional college town demographic there was a noticeably large number of adults in their early twenties present at the event. Lindsey Jones and Trisha Thompson have attended a number of Artwalks in the past and noticed a difference between the summer events and those that take place during UFs academic year. The youngins are out and about, and the area is small enough where youll usually run into people you know. Galleries like the Doris, Display and places on Main Street are good places to go, said Jones, a 21-year-old Thompson looked at their maps while on the corner of Main Street and First Avenue South, planning their route for the evening. Summer artwalks create a different kind of vibe. Its a little more quiet and sleepy but still really nice to get out.Kathleen Boyle / Avenue SARAH LOFTUS Alligator BloggerSome people love them; some people hate them. And Im talking about road trips. Personally, Ive never really been a big fan. My motto has pretty much always been why thought about it, the more I realized there is a beauty to road trips that cant be found when journey and less about the destination, and theres something beautiful about that. I consider myself a road trip convert. So Im goshould take before turning 25. Hopefully, this will either fuel a desire you already have to take road trips or help you become a new fan of road trips. 1. A road trip with your honey. Most people think of a romantic getaway as a nice cruise, or a stay on a tropical island or a European adventure, but when you ask someone if a road trip is romantic, most say no. But they are so wrong. A road trip gives you time to really talk, and a recent Cosmopolitan article said couples tend to have their most intimate and serious conversations while driving together. And it totally makes sense. I mean pretty much all there is to do is talk. Plus, it gives you time to explore new things together in a way you probably dont do very often. 2. The classic bad food, drink-almostthe-whole-time college road trip. Im sure a lot of you have already taken this road trip, probably to an away football game, but if you havent yet, you need to. Youll make decisions youll regret and feel absolutely terrible when you get home, but those drunk moments will live on as glorious college memories. 3. The girls/guys weekend getaway road trip. Friends of the opposite sex are great, but theres something really nice about spending the whole weekend with your girls or guys. Maybe its the fact that you dont have to worry about your appearance as much with your same sex friends, or maybe its that you can unapologetically bash the come home feeling so relaxed. 4. Siblings road trip. Ahh, that brings made me think of all the stupid arguments my sister and I used to have while on road trips when we were children. And while we havent taken a road trip with just the two of us, I really think that it would strengthen our relationship now. No more bickering over what Disney music well listen to. At least for me, so much of the time I spend with my sister involves other family members, so I think just having a siblings trip allows you to really bond with your sibling(s). 5. Road trip with no plans. OK, some of you may think Im crazy. For some, the thought of not having a planned trip is enough to make them literally walk off a cliff before ever doing something like that. (Trust me; I know. Every single person in my family besides myself is like that.) But there are many great things about a trip like that if you look at it from the right perspective. For example, view having no plans as an opportunity to do things you would never be able to do when you have to adhere to your schedule. And living on the edge when you normally freak out being a minute late for class. It could do wonders for you.Five roadtrips to take before 25: Plan now and get excited best of the blogsArtwalk sends onlookers through artistic journey

Use protection and always have a couple of rubbers just in case the guy youre with doesnt. The amount of sexual partners it does not matter. You should be looking for quality, not quantity.

I just think they have a bad sense of humor, but how am I supposed to know when Ive crossed the line? Dear Mediocre Advice, Last week I started talking to this guy on OkCupid.com. We really hit it off and have been constantly texting each other ever since. Hes made several mentions of taking me out on a date but has yet to actually ask me on one or attempt to make plans. Should I just bite the bullet and ask him out or should I just forget about him? Dear Friend, There is such a thing as The Realm of No. Its a place that you enter once you have said some thing ridiculously inappropriate. Your family probably suffers from this daily. In The Realm of No, people cannot un-see or un-know the foul thing you just did or said. Amanda Bynes is the current queen of The Realm of No with her intellectual tweets and hip new look. Unfortunately, the only way to know when youre in this realm is after you have said or done something obscene. To avoid this realm, just say and do very little. Do so little that people will think you have a mental illness. It would probably be better than the child pornography joke you think is appropriate to tell your mom. Dear Friend, It looks like youre going to have to take the reins and ask him out yourself. You felt a connection for a reason, and it would be a shame to let it go to waste just because you for safety: a switchblade, pepper spray, a life alert necklace and a large over-protective dog. Avoid alleys, and empty places, and drink from a sippy cup in case he tries anything funny. IAN ROWEAvenue WriterFor the past several months now, my Facebook newsfeed has been clogged with the laments of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones fans who complain mostly about the same thing: the injustice beloved shows end with cliff hangers. I could never understand why these viewers get so upset, as both of these series are based on comic books and novels, which means the conclusions to these shows were actually released years ago. Besides, should they decide not to God forbid read anything, they only have to wait a few months for new episodes. This I dont understand because as an Arrested Development fan, I had to wait seven years. And such is the life of an Arrested Development fan one ruled by bitter, jilted, television-hating resentment. Resentment about the fact that what was arguably the most original writing on television was canceled while the mind-numbing tedium of shows like Two and a Half Men went right along their merry way even after their main character broke character just long enough to show America the collection of hookers he kept readily available in the horror shop he called a mansion. Which brings us back to season four of Arrested Development. Season four was released just last week, and it is, for lack of a better word, different. Fans, if you havent seen it yet, you should. But lets be honest, youve seen it, because if youre an Arrested Development fan, youve likely spent the last seven years watching the previous three seasons over and over again to the extent you could recite the entire show linearly. The fan base of Arrested Development is not a fan base so much as it is a cult. And youve likely already formed an opinion about it and have likely already tweeted or Facebooked about it, and youre probably only reading this to see which reference to the show Ill decide to pay homage to. But then, Im no more a writer than I am a gentleman beekeeper youre welcome, fans and so I will direct this to any non-fan who has lived under a rock long enough not to have seen the latest episodes. And to that I will say this: Stop whatever it is that you are doing and go watch all four seasons of this show. In short, it is time to start living. Dan Zak from the Washington Times put it best when he said the new season is a chore to watch. And he was right. Because once you start watching, it is all but impossible to stop. What makes season four so different from one through three is the breadth and scope of its interconnected plot. While the previous shows episodes were 22 minutes long and neatly capped at the end with a culmination of the days comedic insanity, season fours episodes span years and tie together a multitude of events, jumping back and forth through time as it follows single characters to build comedy in a symphonic way. Its one that ultimately brings the season to its satirical, burlesque-induced crescendo. Picture Beethovens Fifth symphony composed with laughter. The end of season four is one of the most rewarding TV experiences I have ever had. There are no spoilers here, but I will say that I have already began to rewatch in an attempt to piece together the comedy crumbs sprinkled throughout by the shows creator, Mitchell Hurwitz. You may hesitate to watch when you hear people complain that the shows not the same that they butchered the Arrested Development-ness right out of it. They are not completely wrong: It is different but for the better. What Hurwitz did was a nod to his fans, and he wanted to give them something special, artful and twisted beyond all reason. And that he did. He did not resuscitate Arrested Development he created something new, just for us. A friend of mine who watched the new season said, ever so eloquently, Anyone who hates on this is an idiot. This is the most brilliant writing Ive ever seen. Granted, this is the same friend who texted me after watching Shame and said he might be a sex addict. But theres one thing I cant disagree with: The shows writing is brilliant addictively, compulsively so. Happy watching.Arrested Audience: the show we still cant let go of watching Season four shocks fans with a twist

MINHKIEU LYAvenue WriterThe Oaks Mall was home to the Art, Craft & Lifestyle Show from May 30 to June 2. The show featured everything from handmade crafts to manufactured goods. For unique options when gift buying, collecting or gathering ideas, a craft show is always a great experience. With about a dozen vendors displaying their crafts, this show was no exception. The best part about making these hair pieces is picking out the colors and seeing the kids faces when they look in the mirror, said Beverly Watson, 64, a retired elementary school music teacher. Along with her husband, Bill, a 65year-old retired construction worker, Beverly began making handmade crafts 24 years ago. Beverly started her business by making dolls during Christmas time, including Santas and snowmen. It was not until her granddaughter Lia Watson, 5, was born that she began making hair accessories the same ones she was selling this weekend. Watsons hair accessories include a wide variety of different headbands and hair ties featuring bright colors and bows. Not everything featured in the small weekend show is handmade, though. Linda Quinn, 65, owner of Silver Sun, began selling jewelry from the manufacturer Capri Williams starting 30 years ago. Linda stumbled upon The Oaks Mall last Christmas by accident. She was lost and ended up at the mall, where she rented a booth and sold her jewelry. All of Quinns jewelry is nickel-free. We never sell at retail prices, only wholesale, Quinn said. The Oaks Mall Art, Craft & Lifestyle Show had something for almost everyone. In addition to hair accessories and paint-it-yourself pottery and scarves were available for purchase this weekend. Dont miss out on the next one. THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15Minhkieu Ly / Avenue Art, Craft & Lifestyle show replaces usual vendors in the Oaks Mall last weekend MEGHAN PRYCE Avenue Writer Garrett Bunton, dressed in a dark robe only long enough to cover his green plaid boxers, held a long cane while stripping to the song Magic Stick by 50 Cent. Bunton played Dumblewhore a spinoff of the Harry Potter character Albus Dumbledore in the Hurly Burly Male Burlesque show Hairy Potter and the Sorcerers Bone. Hurly Burly performed Sunday at the High Dive downtown at 10 p.m. The show, which lasted about two hours, featured half-naked humping, thrusting and romp shaking. squeals and dollar bills came from the crowd of women but also pockets of men. Josh Rey, a 34-year-old Gainesville resident, called the performance inventive, entertaining, captivating. Although some of the performers didnt have Magic Mike abs, the show was one-of-a-kind and enjoyable because it told a story. The storyline centered on Harry Potter but with a twist. Hairy endured fraternitystyle hazing, which involved stripping, to join acters from the book also did strip teases. or a large, fake penis to thrill the audience. The show also had an auction so the audience members could take photos and get up close and personal with their favorite performers. This group of tattooed and bearded men started performing together about a year ago. Tim Fine, who played Lord Voldemort and Severus Snape, said the group of friends heard of female burlesque shows in their hometown of Lake Worth and thought they could do better. Fine said one night they threw together a show and performed in front of about 250 women. We all looked at each other after the show and were like Maybe this is more than a onetrick pony, Fine said. Weve done it ever since. Bunton said he hopes performing can one day replace his day job.High Dive hosts burlesque show The best part about making these hair pieces is picking out the colors and seeing the kids faces when they look in the mirror.Beverly Watsonretired school teacher

MELISSA KAHANAvenue Staff WriterThe Florida-favorite grocery store Publix has three locations within walking distance of each other on Archer Road. Trader Joes, also located in close proximity, opened this year with specialty and lesser-known products. There are, of course, other stores to get groceries and other necessities: Target, Walmart, Walgreens, if you wish. But buying local, which encompasses buying foods locally grown by professional or home-based growers on farms, is a completely new experience. Wards Supermarket has been a buy-in-bulk, one-stop shop for a vast array of locally grown grocery shopping needs. But what about a new kind of local buying that doesnt involve an actual grocery store or, better yet, doesnt involve a store at all? Behold the green market, which seems to have made a trendy comeback in food shopping, especially as the summer months roll in and leave college students with more free time and Gainesville residents with a bevy of seasonal food options. Some of the best green markets Ive checked out to get your locally grown food shopping on are: Monday: Tioga Monday Market at Tioga Town Center is a bit of a stretch, as its location in Jonesville makes it less appealing to Gainesville residents looking for convenience. And why would you want to go out of your way to grocery shop? Good question, but like I said before, green markets provide an alternative, even more personalized shopping experience. Although a bit smaller, this open-air, fair-weather Monday market on West Newberry Road from 4 to 7 p.m. has those great local food vendors but also provides an exit route to one of the many shops in Tioga Town Center including the new World of Beer. Wednesday: Union Street Farmers Market at Bo Diddley Plaza downtown is one of my favorites. Also from 4 to 7 p.m., the last of the cooler weather crops, such as lettuce and strawberries, were being sold for reasonable prices to make up for the $5 pint of blueberries each vendor was selling, Im sure. But hey, thats the price you pay to support your local community. I had a sample of tempeh that I thought was produced by magic hands. While attracting a seemingly younger crowd, the plaza allowed for a large number of the earthy-crunchy vendors to be closer together and sold a lot of produce as well as already-prepared foods such as quinoa salad. Kudos to them for landing a spot at the most visited green market I ventured to as well. One in particular, Hoggtowne Lemonade Co. has been at the market since April of last year and is out every Wednesday as well as Saturday at Haile Plantation. After selling me their raspberry hibiscus lemonade, which I am forever hooked on, co-owner Adam Streifel said he buys the fruit he started juicing at home every morning from Wards and local farms. Its all locally sourced, he said, especially the blueberries and strawberries right now from Williston. Saturday: The Haile Farmers Market at the Village Center from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays was nothing short of beautiful. Maybe it had to do with the perfect sunny weather, but this green markets location winding through a road nestled in between quaint shops and smaller restaurants was iconic. Vendors had huge smiles plastered on their faces as mostly families meandered through the market. When compared to Union Street Market, Haile had fewer vendors and sampling opportunities. However, Haile provided a proportional amount of produce vendors to cheese and pastry vendors and even specialty venAmanda Bowers baked goods stand BakerBaker caught my attention with its delicately wrapped pastries such as the pecan bars. Bowers had a stand since June 2012 at the market, and it is the only location she sells from outside of her home, which she rents out of and does small catering things. She said it was popular to become a cottage food baker, which was a law passed in November that allowed people to bake out of their homes without a Bowers sells out of everything by about 10 a.m. each Saturday morning and also buys her ingredients from markets, especially the seasonal zucchinis and blueberries currently. Saturday: The Alachua County Farmers Market at the corner of U.S. Highway 441 and County Road 121 is an outdoors green market for covered by a single large tent, the greens and local veggie produce is in abundance. Small tables with a handful of browsing buyers suggest this is a lesser-known market. I almost passed it on the road, honestly. But it continues to be a friendly atmosphere, and like the Union Street Market, it offers the option of using a credit card to purchase special coins to use at the market when you forget to bring cash. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013Melissa Kahan / AvenueErin Carlson, 22, stops at Amanda Bowers table of goods from her bakeshop BakerBaker for a pecan bar. Carlson was meandering through Haile Farmers Market that winds through Haile Village Saturday. BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterSummer has always been a popular season for the deliverance of fresh songs and albums, but one bands new release is standing out in the rock genre. With more than two decades of musical experience under its members belts, Alice in Chains, the rock band known for its unique harmonies and emergence into the grunge scene in the 90s, recently put out its 5th studio album. The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here was released on iTunes on May 28. It features 12 songs and has been in the works since late 2011. roots. The songs are still akin to the lengths of the band, but they feature some new elements. All of the songs were written by band members. As lead singer Jerry Cantrell said in an interview with Rolling Stone, We made a unique record thats completely different from anything we ever did. It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we havent been to before, but we havent lost our identity. The quartets collection of new music features the single Hollow, which was premiered via YouTube in December, showing a slideshow of pictures that fans sent in on Instagram. The song has Man in the Box potential, as do some of the others on the ommend Lab Monkey despite the fact that its a less popular song, as it really delivers. Stone, the second single from the album, has also become a favorite of mine. Alice in Chains will begin the U.S. leg of its tour in August. See the bands website for dates and more album details. www.AliceinChains. com.Alice In Chains enters new turf with most recent album release Green markets offer alternative to grocery store shopping local Charmaine Miller / Alligator Staff WriterNEW BAND PROFILE: THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY MEMBERS: Eliel Cotz, lead singer and guitarist; Richard Butcher, uku lele and electric guitar; Jared Oberg, ukulele and guitar; Justin Molina, drums; Cristian Molina, glockenspiel and tambourine FORMED: January 2013 SELF-DESCRIBED STYLE: Folk/pop INFLUENCES: Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver, Owl City, Freelance Whales, Jon Foreman It started when Richard Butcher, who used to be in a band called Ti ger Weather, met Eliel Cotz and they discovered their shared interests in music. They befriended Justin and Cristian Molina and Jared Oberg and started jamming out with their eclectic array of instruments. They formed the band in January and started playing shows at Pascals Coffee House and Baptist Collegiate Ministries. They released their song Geese on iTunes at the end of March. Members of The Old Country practice wherever they can, said Cotz, lead singer and guitarist. They like to rehearse on Turlington Plaza when it hollows out. Cotz creates the skeletons of the songs, and the other mem ning Lights for their next show in West Palm Beach. Cotz said he gathered inspiration for the songs tune from a hymn. The songs are part of an effort to create an EP. With lilting melodies, a twinkling glockenspiel and Cotzs voice akin to Adam Youngs of Owl City the tunes would be a perfect soundtrack for a road trip or a semiserious study session. The music is full of bells and whistles but also contains lyrical depth. The members are united under one purpose: As Christians, we want to be able to relate to people and let them feel loved, just as weve been loved, Cotz said.

THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 23THE RALLY Th e NBA is nearing the end of its twomonth haul through the postseason, and Miami Heat forward LeBron James has continued his dominance through the Eastern Conference Finals. As James leads his team into the Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, alligatorSports editors Adam Lichtenstein and Landon Watnick will decide which Florida player dominates or dominated his or her game in a LeBron-esque fashion. Adam: Choosing a player who can turn their game on like LeBron is tough. James is arguably the most dominant athlete in any sport in the world, except for maybe Lionel Messi. But speaking of Messi, Floridas most dominant athlete shares a sport with him. That player is none other than former Gators forward Erika Tymrak. Tymrak, a two-time All-American, led Florida to its most successful season in years, notching a Southeastern Conference regular season title and the SEC tournament title on her way out. Like LeBron, she led her team in pretty much every relevant category goals, assists and shots on goal to name a few. The Gators are going to miss her when they try to start offensive attacks next season. Havana Solaun and Annie Speese are good, but they dont have the dynamism and pure skill Tymrak brought to the pitch. Landon: LeBron is one of the most efteam in nearly every statistical category. Miami with a 56.5 percent shooting, which is absolutely insane for a highly utilized forward like him. On the other ished 2012 with a 13.2 shooting percentage second worst of Gators who took at least 20 shots. But there is a basketball player on this campus as valuable to her team as LeBron is to the Heat. Her name is Sydney Moss. You probably know her father, Randy. Moss plays both shooting guard and small forward LeBrons natural position. The 5-foot-11 rising sophomore bullies her defenders with physicality and quickness just like how her dad did back in the early 2000s and how LeBron will against Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard these next two weeks. Our womens basketball writer, Phil on this. He even wrote an article back in March comparing Moss skillset to LeBrons. Adam: While Moss may share some traits with LeBron, where was the success? The Gators went to the WNIT LeBrons teams compete for championships. Tymraks team dominated the competition in the SEC Tournament like the Heat two rounds of the playoffs if you can remember that far back. Florida outscored opponents 8-1 in the tourney, and Tymrak led the way. She scored in each game as the Gators stormed into the NCAA Tournament. It was clear Tymrak was the best player on the pitch in those games. However, Moss wasnt even Floridas top scoring threat that would be Jaterra Bonds. She wasnt the Gators best rebounder, either. That honor goes to the Indiana Fevers new forward, Jennifer George. Moss was a solid all-around player on a mediocre team. Tymrak was the top player on a very good team. Landon: Moss is still young and has loads of potential. Shes basically LeBron back in the good ol Cleveland days. Right now, she has no help. With a crop of highly touted recruits and transfers joining coach Amanda Butlers squad in 2013-14, Moss should get plenty of assistance. Moss rounded into form at the end of the season and proved why shes Floridas best player. She started the last 16 games of her freshman season, leading the Gators in points (16.7), rebounds (8.1) and assists that stretch. Her dominance in every statistical category during the latter half of the year rings one name: LeBron. Moss was also the only Gator to exceed the 25-point threshold twice this year. I know Im focusing primarily on the end of 2012-13, but Im looking to the future. Tymrak may have led her team in 2012 with nine goals and 12 assists, but she took a team-high 68 shots. This was Tymrak at the peak of her college career. Moss didnt dominate during the beginning of her freshman season, but she improved exponentially and will only get better over the next three seasons. Youll soon witness that. Adam: LeBron was far and away the best player with Cleveland. Moss was not the best player on her team last year, and all the incoming talent you mentioned will make sure she wont be the best player on the team for the next three years. Tymraks stats werent awe-inspiring, her apart from the rest of the team. Like LeBrons dunk on Jason Terry earlier in the year, Tymrak dominated her opponents. Whether she was feeding passes to McKenzie Barney or dribbling around opponents, Tymrak made her minutes count. Not only was she a dangerous scorer, she was a dangerous passer. She had a knack for delivering inside passes to forwards and putting them in position to score. She led the Gators in assists in three of her four seasons. LeBron leads the Heat in assists, as well as points and rebounds. Tymrak led the Gators in goals, assists and game-winning goals. Moss led the team in assists barely.

GORDON STREISANDAlligator WriterFrom baseball in Miami to football in West Palm Beach and track in Gainesville, junior Eddie Lovett has stayed busy his entire life. Lovett is the three-time reigning Southeastern Conference and NCAA champion in the mens 60m hurdles. Lovett set the fourth fastest time in collegiate history when he clocked a time of 7.50 seconds at the NCAA Indoor Champioships this year, but he had never planned to step foot on a track. Born in Miami to a mother who played high school basketball and a father who played minor league baseball, Lovett was destined to become an athlete. Lovetts father, Eddie Williams, was a second-round draft selection for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1991. Williams showed considerable promise as a prospect, being named to USA Todays 1991 Super 25 along with future MLB stars Manny Ramirez, Shawn Green, Cliff Floyd and Dmitri Young. Had it not been for a car accident in 1993, Williams might have reached his full potential. but his foray into the sport was short-lived. His even on his radar. I played football my whole life, he said. I never thought about running track. When I was in the sixth grade, I went out on the track one day. Back then, I was super skinny, and they thought I was a distance runner. I was No, this is not what I want, so I quit. After living in Miami for much of his childhood, Lovett and his family moved to West Palm Beach. My mom just wanted to get out of [Miami]. There was a lot of stuff dealing with my family, so she just wanted to relocate, Lovett said. Lovett said the move was ultimately good for him, but he struggled with the transition. family that I had (in Miami), he said. I had to learn to adjust to the people, especially the girls. The move to West Palm Beach catalyzed Lovetts athletic career. Football was still at the forefront for Lovett, who thrived on the freshman and then the varsity team.. Football was his top priority. He did not start running track until he was a sophomore at Palm Beach Lakes High. junior), I was thinking about transferring to Dwyer just to play football, he said. I talked to my family, and at the last second, I decided to stay. That summer, I went in really focused on football. But Lovetts focus on football was for naught. He suffered a broken arm three games into his senior season. I didnt know what to do, Lovett said. I didnt know how I was going to play football. What if broke my arm again? What if it was going to affect me in track? With football out of the picture, Lovett switched his focus to track and dominated. As a senior, he broke a 20-year-old FHSAA record in the boys 110m hurdles, winning the Class 3A championship in a time of 13.46 seconds, which led the nation. Florida coach Mike Holloway took notice. I actually got a call from one of the alumnis father, Holloway said. Then, I got a call from (Olympian and former Gator) Tony McQuays high school coach (Carnell Coleman). He told me, Theres a guy down here that you need to take a look at. Holloways network of trusted colleagues raved about Lovetts talent. Lovetts coach at Palm Beach Lakes, Jerome Groover, had the highest praise for the senior hurdler. Ive known Eddies high school coach since I was a high school coach, Holloway said. Jerome told me, Look, I think this might be the best guy Ive ever had, which is saying a lot, because hes had some good ones. resulted in a scholarship offer. After arriving at Florida, Lovett lived up to the lofty expectations set by those around him. His freshman year, he became an SEC champion and Mens Indoor Freshman Track & Field Runner of the Year. He was the SEC champion again his sophomore year, and he was the youngest competitor in the mens 110m hurdles at the U.S. Olympic Trials, makof 13.49 at the trials moved him into second all-time in Florida school history. Lovetts trajectory was skyrocketing at UF. It was a comeback story for an athlete who had broken his arm and almost lost all hope for a future in sports. But all the success and accolades Lovett had merited were suddenly put on hold last summer. On July 18, 2012, a little over a week after father was shot and killed in his native Virgin Islands. Williams was found unresponsive in the drivers seat of his car that morning. Perhaps the most heartbreaking detail was that Lovett was rekindling what was once a tumultuous relationship with his father. With a heavy heart, Lovett has continued to perform this season. He set a meet record at the Indoor Championships in March. The minute you get complacent is the minute you make a mistake and look like when I have good practices, I feel like I couldve done better. Im really competitive. Im cool and laid back, but if you give me a challenge Ill probably show you out. Added Holloway: Eddie is the kind of guy where he could have a perfect start and still say it wasnt. Lovetts success has not surprised Holloway. The Gators coach knew he could trust Groovers advice. A hurdler is a sprinter with an attitude, and that describes Eddie Lovett to a T, Holloway said. Hes a sprinter with an attitude when it comes to the sticks. Hes fast. Hes aggressive. You cant be fearful and be a great hurdler. You cant be afraid of the sticks. Since his football career ended prematurely, Lovett shifted his focus to track and earned results. Although he has already won big at Florida, he has set his sights even higher. Lovett will compete in his third NCAA Outdoor Championship in as many years tonight at 8:20; he will run in the prelims in the 110m hurdles his only event. I know what it feels like to hunt, Lovett said. My mentality is: Im No. 1 in the NCAA, but Im not No. 1 in the U.S. Im not No. 1 in the world. 24, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 Photo courtesy of UF CommunicationsEddie Lovett leaps over a hurdle during a NCAA East Preliminary Round in Greensboro, N.C., on May 24.

A UF public relations senior who prefers to remain anonymous said she has taken amphetamines as a study aid. Im not a big fan of it, because it doesnt really do much for me, said the 22-year-old. It provides a little bit of focus, but not enough to be taking a drug. Miller said people not only students do not realize that there can be negative consequences associated with sharing prescription drugs. If youre taking any sort of medicine that hasnt been prescribed for you, then you dont know how your body is going to interact with that, she said. Miller said it is healthier to use time management skills, study strategies and campus resources to help with studying and work that need to be done not drugs. You have to remind students that you might feel that its harmless and helps you get through a couple of things, she said. But you really havent learned how to deal with stressors in a positive and healthy way. According to the poll, 18 percent of students said their schools have programs dealing with students using drugs as study aids. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffBill Williams, 65, of Flagler Beach, strolls past Karma Cream, a Gainesville coffee shop on University Avenue that sells vegan delicacies. A new study shows that vegetarians, on average, live longer. AN ALL-VEGGIE DIET HAS A BETTER IMPACT ON MEN. ALANNA MASSEYAlligator Contributing WriterEveryone knows eating green can make you lean, but a study shows it lead to a longer life, too. Researchers at Loma Linda University in California recently conducted a study with more than 73,000 participants and determined vegetarians had a 12 percent lower chance of early death than meateaters. tive effects, said Wendy Dahl, an assistant professor in UFs food science and human nutrition department. We know that with many chronic diseases, part of the cause is our eating habits. The study found a vegetarian on men than women. In general, all recommendations point to consuming more plant foods and less animal products, particularly red meat, Dahl said. Its partly about what the vegetarians arent eating, but its also about what they are eating. Vegetarian diets contain higher other nutrients, she said. Michaela Bisienere, a 19-year-old UF journalism sophomore, said she hasnt eaten meat for about three years due to health reasons. When she made the diet change, she noticed an increase in energy. It forces me to pay a lot of attention to things that I eat and plan out my meals better, Bisienere said. UF marketing junior Julia Witten, 20, has been a vegetarian since the beginning of the year. She said she eats black beans, spinach, tofu, cheese and eggs to get the nutrients she once got from meat. Jeff Greenhouse, a 21-year-old UF environmental science senior, became a vegetarian at age 11. He was having stomach issues, and his doctor suggested that he stop eating meat. I have been considering trying to eat certain things without getting sick, but I havent done that yet, Greenhouse said.

THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 CAMPUS CLAIRE FULLERAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers have created tiny, unmanned airplanes and submarines that can travel inside hurricanes and collect data in real time.

The problem is getting the accuracy, intensity and trajectory of a hurricane predicted well, Mohseni said. We noticed that the mentality of researchers direction and thought we could use the hurricane. The 6-inch airplanes and submarines are equipped with several sensors, a radio transmitter, a GPS, a processor and a motor. Each airplane weighs about 80 grams, which is a little heavier than an egg. The vehicles, which are controlled by computers, are launched into the air or water and act as debris that the hurricane can toss around. To develop the submarines, Mohseni and his team of 20 graduate students studied the The team has a squid care-and-testing facility to research movement patterns and sensory systems. The airplanes and submarines have not been tested in an actual hurricane yet. They have, however, gone through hurricane simulations using real data. Doug Lipinski, a postdoctoral researcher in UFs Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, played a large role in the simulation part of the project. We used data from Hurricane Rita, which hit in 2005, Lipinski said. That data was fairly incomplete, though, so we performed simuwith a high-resolution data set, and from there you can observe how the vehicles would work in a hurricane.

KATHLEEN BOYLE Avenue WriterIt was a hot and humid summer night in Gainesville, but an irregular breeze and large cumulus clouds offered those hitting the pavement an appreciated relief from the typical Florida mugginess weve grown accustomed to bearing. Juxtaposed with the weather was the lively vibe adrift throughout downtown Gainesville last Friday night. The weekend buzz that usually encompasses the neighborhood was in effect but was further escalated by the presence of Artwalk Gainesville. A free self-guided tour from 7 to 10 p.m. on the last Friday of every month, Artwalk Gainesville has become a local event that brings the public together in celebration of local visual art talent. Various artists from Gainesville and outlying regional towns come together to share their work in downtown galleries, nightlife venues and booths set up on Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The result is an unexpected mix of talent a reminder of the truly inseeking outlets for artistic expression. Attendees can pick up a free map that outlines the various festivities taking place throughout town available both at the Artwalk booth and the events website: www.artwalkgainesville. com. Morgan Motes, a 15-year-old sophomore from Palatka High School, exhibited his artwork for day. Although he is years younger than many of the other artists at this event, Motes proved age does not matter in talent capability. His paintings demonstrate crossover illustration and offer insight into My art is all about high school angst, Motes said as he stood beside a table that exhibited a portion of his portfolio. Each piece has its own story that has to do with whatevers going on with my life. I do about a piece a week and try to incorporate my life in each Though Artwalk attracts artists and supporters from all age groups -proving that Gainesville social events extend beyond the traditional college town demographic there was a noticeably large number of adults in their early twenties present at the event. Lindsey Jones and Trisha Thompson have attended a number of Artwalks in the past and noticed a difference between the summer events and those that take place during UFs academic year. The youngins are out and about, and the area is small enough where youll usually run into people you know. Galleries like the Doris, Display and places on Main Street are good places to go, said Jones, a 21-year-old Thompson looked at their maps while on the corner of Main Street and First Avenue South, planning their route for the evening. Summer artwalks create a different kind of vibe. Its a little more quiet and sleepy but still really nice to get out.Kathleen Boyle / Avenue SARAH LOFTUS Alligator BloggerSome people love them; some people hate them.

Most people think of a romantic getaway as a nice cruise, or a stay on a tropical island or a European adventure, but when you ask someone if a road trip is romantic, most say no. But they are so wrong. A road trip gives you time to really talk, and a recent Cosmopolitan article said couples tend to have their most intimate and serious conversations while driving together. And it totally makes sense. I mean pretty much all there is to do is talk. Plus, it gives you time to explore new things together in a way you probably dont do very often. 2. The classic bad food, drink-almostthe-whole-time college road trip. Im sure a lot of you have already taken this road trip, probably to an away football game, but if you havent yet, you need to. Youll make decisions youll regret and feel absolutely terrible when you get home, but those drunk moments will live on as glorious college memories. 3. The girls/guys weekend getaway road trip. Friends of the opposite sex are great, but theres something really nice about spending the whole weekend with your girls or guys. Maybe its the fact that you dont have to worry about your appearance as much with your same sex friends, or maybe its that you can unapologetically bash the come home feeling so relaxed. 4. Siblings road trip. Ahh, that brings made me think of all the stupid arguments my sister and I used to have while on road trips when we were children. And while we havent taken a road trip with just the two of us, I really think that it would strengthen our relationship now. No more bickering over what Disney music well listen to. At least for me, so much of the time I spend with my sister involves other family members, so I think just having a siblings trip allows you to really bond with your sibling(s). 5. Road trip with no plans. OK, some of you may think Im crazy. For some, the thought of not having a planned trip is enough to make them literally walk off a cliff before ever doing something like that. (Trust me; I know. Every single person in my family besides myself is like that.) But there are many great things about a trip like that if you look at it from the right perspective. For example, view having no plans as an opportunity to do things you would never be able to do when you have to adhere to your schedule. And living on the edge when you normally freak out being a minute late for class. It could do wonders for you.Five roadtrips to take before 25: Plan now and get excited best of the blogsArtwalk sends onlookers through artistic journey

14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, How many is considered too many when talking about the number of sexual partners for a female? Dear Friend, In the words of Cady from Mean Girls, the limit does not exist! As long as you arent harming yourself or others, do what you want with your body. Use protection and always have a couple of rubbers just in case the guy youre with doesnt. The amount of sexual partners it does not matter. You should be looking for quality, not quantity. Feel comfortable and happy with your partners. Sure, well make an exception for a few bozos here and there, but lets just blame alcohol or poor judgment. Dont restrict yourself from having a good time with someone you want to be with because of a silly number. That number is no ones business but your own. Dear Mediocre Advice, What are your credentials for giving advice? Dear Friend, Freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Dear Mediocre Advice, I like to think Im the jokester in my fam ily, but I get a lot of awkward looks instead of laughs. I just think they have a bad sense of humor, but how am I supposed to know when Ive crossed the line? Dear Mediocre Advice, Last week I started talking to this guy on OkCupid.com. We really hit it off and have been constantly texting each other ever since. Hes made several mentions of taking me out on a date but has yet to actually ask me on one or attempt to make plans. Should I just bite the bullet and ask him out or should I just forget about him? Dear Friend, There is such a thing as The Realm of No. Its a place that you enter once you have said something ridiculously inappropriate. Your family probably suffers from this daily. In The Realm of No, people cannot un-see or un-know the foul thing you just did or said. Amanda Bynes is the current queen of The Realm of No with her intellectual tweets and hip new look. Unfortunately, the only way to know when youre in this realm is after you have said or done something obscene. To avoid this realm, just say and do very little. Do so little that people will think you have a mental illness. It would probably be better than the child pornography joke you think is appropriate to tell your mom. Dear Friend, It looks like youre going to have to take the reins and ask him out yourself. You felt a connection for a reason, and it would be a shame to let it go to waste just because you for safety: a switchblade, pepper spray, a life alert necklace and a large over-protective dog. Avoid alleys, and empty places, and drink from a sippy cup in case he tries anything funny. IAN ROWEAvenue WriterFor the past several months now, my Facebook newsfeed has been clogged with the laments of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones fans who complain mostly about the same thing: the injustice beloved shows end with cliff hangers. I could never understand why these viewers get so upset, as both of these series are based on comic books and novels, which means the conclusions to these shows were actually released years ago. Besides, should they decide not to God forbid read anything, they only have to wait a few months for new episodes. This I dont understand because as an Arrested Development fan, I had to wait seven years. And such is the life of an Arrested Development fan one ruled by bitter, jilted, television-hating resentment. Resentment about the fact that what was arguably the most original writing on television was canceled while the mind-numbing tedium of shows like Two and a Half Men went right along their merry way even after their main character broke character just long enough to show America the collection of hookers he kept readily available in the horror shop he called a mansion. Which brings us back to season four of Arrested Development. Season four was released just last week, and it is, for lack of a better word, different. Fans, if you havent seen it yet, you should. But lets be honest, youve seen it, because if youre an Arrested Development fan, youve likely spent the last seven years watching the previous three seasons over and over again to the extent you could recite the entire show linearly. The fan base of Arrested Development is not a fan base so much as it is a cult. And youve likely already formed an opinion about it and have likely already tweeted or Facebooked about it, and youre probably only reading this to see which reference to the show Ill decide to pay homage to. But then, Im no more a writer than I am a gentleman beekeeper youre welcome, fans and so I will direct this to any non-fan who has lived under a rock long enough not to have seen the latest episodes. And to that I will say this: Stop whatever it is that you are doing and go watch all four seasons of this show. In short, it is time to start living. Dan Zak from the Washington Times put it best when he said the new season is a chore to watch. And he was right. Because once you start watching, it is all but impossible to stop. What makes season four so different from one through three is the breadth and scope of its interconnected plot. While the previous shows episodes were 22 minutes long and neatly capped at the end with a culmination of the days comedic insanity, season fours episodes span years and tie together a multitude of events, jumping back and forth through time as it follows single characters to build comedy in a symphonic way. Its one that ultimately brings the season to its satirical, burlesque-induced crescendo. Picture Beethovens Fifth symphony composed with laughter. The end of season four is one of the most rewarding TV experiences I have ever had. There are no spoilers here, but I will say that I have already began to rewatch in an attempt to piece together the comedy crumbs sprinkled throughout by the shows creator, Mitchell Hurwitz. You may hesitate to watch when you hear people complain that the shows not the same that they butchered the Arrested Development-ness right out of it. They are not completely wrong: It is different but for the better. What Hurwitz did was a nod to his fans, and he wanted to give them something special, artful and twisted beyond all reason. And that he did. He did not resuscitate Arrested Development he created something new, just for us. A friend of mine who watched the new season said, ever so eloquently, Anyone who hates on this is an idiot. This is the most brilliant writing Ive ever seen. Granted, this is the same friend who texted me after watching Shame and said he might be a sex addict. But theres one thing I cant disagree with: The shows writing is brilliant addictively, compulsively so. Happy watching.Arrested Audience: the show we still cant let go of watching Season four shocks fans with a twist

MINHKIEU LYAvenue WriterThe Oaks Mall was home to the Art, Craft & Lifestyle Show from May 30 to June 2. The show featured everything from handmade crafts to manufactured goods. For unique options when gift buying, collecting or gathering ideas, a craft show is always a great experience. With about a dozen vendors displaying their crafts, this show was no exception. The best part about making these hair pieces is picking out the colors and seeing the kids faces when they look in the mirror, said Beverly Watson, 64, a retired elementary school music teacher. Along with her husband, Bill, a 65year-old retired construction worker, Beverly began making handmade crafts 24 years ago. Beverly started her business by making dolls during Christmas time, including Santas and snowmen. It was not until her granddaughter Lia Watson, 5, was born that she began making hair accessories the same ones she was selling this weekend. Watsons hair accessories include a wide variety of different headbands and hair ties featuring bright colors and bows. Not everything featured in the small weekend show is handmade, though. Linda Quinn, 65, owner of Silver Sun, began selling jewelry from the manufacturer Capri Williams starting 30 years ago. Linda stumbled upon The Oaks Mall last Christmas by accident. She was lost and ended up at the mall, where she rented a booth and sold her jewelry. All of Quinns jewelry is nickel-free. We never sell at retail prices, only wholesale, Quinn said. The Oaks Mall Art, Craft & Lifestyle Show had something for almost everyone. In addition to hair accessories and paint-it-yourself pottery and scarves were available for purchase this weekend. Dont miss out on the next one. THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15Minhkieu Ly / Avenue Art, Craft & Lifestyle show replaces usual vendors in the Oaks Mall last weekend MEGHAN PRYCE Avenue Writer Garrett Bunton, dressed in a dark robe only long enough to cover his green plaid boxers, held a long cane while stripping to the song Magic Stick by 50 Cent. Bunton played Dumblewhore a spinoff of the Harry Potter character Albus Dumbledore in the Hurly Burly Male Burlesque show Hairy Potter and the Sorcerers Bone. Hurly Burly performed Sunday at the High Dive downtown at 10 p.m. The show, which lasted about two hours, featured half-naked humping, thrusting and romp shaking. squeals and dollar bills came from the crowd of women but also pockets of men. Josh Rey, a 34-year-old Gainesville resident, called the performance inventive, entertaining, captivating. Although some of the performers didnt have Magic Mike abs, the show was one-of-a-kind and enjoyable because it told a story. The storyline centered on Harry Potter but with a twist. Hairy endured fraternitystyle hazing, which involved stripping, to join acters from the book also did strip teases. or a large, fake penis to thrill the audience. The show also had an auction so the audience members could take photos and get up close and personal with their favorite performers. This group of tattooed and bearded men started performing together about a year ago. Tim Fine, who played Lord Voldemort and Severus Snape, said the group of friends heard of female burlesque shows in their hometown of Lake Worth and thought they could do better. Fine said one night they threw together a show and performed in front of about 250 women. We all looked at each other after the show and were like Maybe this is more than a onetrick pony, Fine said. Weve done it ever since. Bunton said he hopes performing can one day replace his day job.High Dive hosts burlesque show The best part about making these hair pieces is picking out the colors and seeing the kids faces when they look in the mirror.Beverly Watsonretired school teacher

MELISSA KAHANAvenue Staff WriterThe Florida-favorite grocery store Publix has three locations within walking distance of each other on Archer Road. Trader Joes, also located in close proximity, opened this year with specialty and lesser-known products. There are, of course, other stores to get groceries and other necessities: Target, Walmart, Walgreens, if you wish. But buying local, which encompasses buying foods locally grown by professional or home-based growers on farms, is a completely new experience. Wards Supermarket has been a buy-in-bulk, one-stop shop for a vast array of locally grown grocery shopping needs. But what about a new kind of local buying that doesnt involve an actual grocery store or, better yet, doesnt involve a store at all? Behold the green market, which seems to have made a trendy comeback in food shopping, especially as the summer months roll in and leave college students with more free time and Gainesville residents with a bevy of seasonal food options. Some of the best green markets Ive checked out to get your locally grown food shopping on are: Monday: Tioga Monday Market at Tioga Town Center is a bit of a stretch, as its location in Jonesville makes it less appealing to Gainesville residents looking for convenience. And why would you want to go out of your way to grocery shop? Good question, but like I said before, green markets provide an alternative, even more personalized shopping experience. Although a bit smaller, this open-air, fair-weather Monday market on West Newberry Road from 4 to 7 p.m. has those great local food vendors but also provides an exit route to one of the many shops in Tioga Town Center including the new World of Beer. Wednesday: Union Street Farmers Market at Bo Diddley Plaza downtown is one of my favorites. Also from 4 to 7 p.m., the last of the cooler weather crops, such as lettuce and strawberries, were being sold for reasonable prices to make up for the $5 pint of blueberries each vendor was selling, Im sure. But hey, thats the price you pay to support your local community. I had a sample of tempeh that I thought was produced by magic hands. While attracting a seemingly younger crowd, the plaza allowed for a large number of the earthy-crunchy vendors to be closer together and sold a lot of produce as well as already-prepared foods such as quinoa salad. Kudos to them for landing a spot at the most visited green market I ventured to as well. One in particular, Hoggtowne Lemonade Co. has been at the market since April of last year and is out every Wednesday as well as Saturday at Haile Plantation. After selling me their raspberry hibiscus lemonade, which I am forever hooked on, co-owner Adam Streifel said he buys the fruit he started juicing at home every morning from Wards and local farms. Its all locally sourced, he said, especially the blueberries and strawberries right now from Williston. Saturday: The Haile Farmers Market at the Village Center from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays was nothing short of beautiful. Maybe it had to do with the perfect sunny weather, but this green markets location winding through a road nestled in between quaint shops and smaller restaurants was iconic. Vendors had huge smiles plastered on their faces as mostly families meandered through the market. When compared to Union Street Market, Haile had fewer vendors and sampling opportunities. However, Haile provided a proportional amount of produce vendors to cheese and pastry vendors and even specialty venAmanda Bowers baked goods stand BakerBaker caught my attention with its delicately wrapped pastries such as the pecan bars. Bowers had a stand since June 2012 at the market, and it is the only location she sells from outside of her home, which she rents out of and does small catering things. She said it was popular to become a cottage food baker, which was a law passed in November that allowed people to bake out of their homes without a Bowers sells out of everything by about 10 a.m. each Saturday morning and also buys her ingredients from markets, especially the seasonal zucchinis and blueberries currently. Saturday: The Alachua County Farmers Market at the corner of U.S. Highway 441 and County Road 121 is an outdoors green market for covered by a single large tent, the greens and local veggie produce is in abundance. Small tables with a handful of browsing buyers suggest this is a lesser-known market. I almost passed it on the road, honestly. But it continues to be a friendly atmosphere, and like the Union Street Market, it offers the option of using a credit card to purchase special coins to use at the market when you forget to bring cash. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013Melissa Kahan / AvenueErin Carlson, 22, stops at Amanda Bowers table of goods from her bakeshop BakerBaker for a pecan bar. Carlson was meandering through Haile Farmers Market that winds through Haile Village Saturday. BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterSummer has always been a popular season for the deliverance of fresh songs and albums, but one bands new release is standing out in the rock genre. With more than two decades of musical experience under its members belts, Alice in Chains, the rock band known for its unique harmonies and emergence into the grunge scene in the 90s, recently put out its 5th studio album. The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here was released on iTunes on May 28. It features 12 songs and has been in the works since late 2011. roots. The songs are still akin to the lengths of the band, but they feature some new elements. All of the songs were written by band members. As lead singer Jerry Cantrell said in an interview with Rolling Stone, We made a unique record thats completely different from anything we ever did. It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we havent been to before, but we havent lost our identity. The quartets collection of new music features the single Hollow, which was premiered via YouTube in December, showing a slideshow of pictures that fans sent in on Instagram. The song has Man in the Box potential, as do some of the others on the ommend Lab Monkey despite the fact that its a less popular song, as it really delivers. Stone, the second single from the album, has also become a favorite of mine. Alice in Chains will begin the U.S. leg of its tour in August. See the bands website for dates and more album details. www.AliceinChains. com.Alice In Chains enters new turf with most recent album release Green markets offer alternative to grocery store shopping local Charmaine Miller / Alligator Staff WriterNEW BAND PROFILE: THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY THE OLD COUNTRY MEMBERS: Eliel Cotz, lead singer and guitarist; Richard Butcher, uku lele and electric guitar; Jared Oberg, ukulele and guitar; Justin Molina, drums; Cristian Molina, glockenspiel and tambourine FORMED: January 2013 SELF-DESCRIBED STYLE: Folk/pop INFLUENCES: Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver, Owl City, Freelance Whales, Jon Foreman It started when Richard Butcher, who used to be in a band called Ti ger Weather, met Eliel Cotz and they discovered their shared interests in music. They befriended Justin and Cristian Molina and Jared Oberg and started jamming out with their eclectic array of instruments. They formed the band in January and started playing shows at Pascals Coffee House and Baptist Collegiate Ministries. They released their song Geese on iTunes at the end of March. Members of The Old Country practice wherever they can, said Cotz, lead singer and guitarist. They like to rehearse on Turlington Plaza when it hollows out. Cotz creates the skeletons of the songs, and the other mem ning Lights for their next show in West Palm Beach. Cotz said he gathered inspiration for the songs tune from a hymn. The songs are part of an effort to create an EP. With lilting melodies, a twinkling glockenspiel and Cotzs voice akin to Adam Youngs of Owl City the tunes would be a perfect soundtrack for a road trip or a semiserious study session. The music is full of bells and whistles but also contains lyrical depth. The members are united under one purpose: As Christians, we want to be able to relate to people and let them feel loved, just as weve been loved, Cotz said.

As James leads his team into the Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, alligatorSports editors Adam Lichtenstein and Landon Watnick will decide which Florida player dominates or dominated his or her game in a LeBron-esque fashion. Adam: Choosing a player who can turn their game on like LeBron is tough. James is arguably the most dominant athlete in any sport in the world, except for maybe Lionel Messi. But speaking of Messi, Floridas most dominant athlete shares a sport with him. That player is none other than former Gators forward Erika Tymrak. Tymrak, a two-time All-American, led Florida to its most successful season in years, notching a Southeastern Conference regular season title and the SEC tournament title on her way out. Like LeBron, she led her team in pretty much every relevant category goals, assists and shots on goal to name a few. The Gators are going to miss her when they try to start offensive attacks next season. Havana Solaun and Annie Speese are good, but they dont have the dynamism and pure skill Tymrak brought to the pitch. Landon: LeBron is one of the most efteam in nearly every statistical category. Miami with a 56.5 percent shooting, which is absolutely insane for a highly utilized forward like him. On the other ished 2012 with a 13.2 shooting percentage second worst of Gators who took at least 20 shots. But there is a basketball player on this campus as valuable to her team as LeBron is to the Heat. Her name is Sydney Moss. You probably know her father, Randy. Moss plays both shooting guard and small forward LeBrons natural position. The 5-foot-11 rising sophomore bullies her defenders with physicality and quickness just like how her dad did back in the early 2000s and how LeBron will against Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard these next two weeks. Our womens basketball writer, Phil on this. He even wrote an article back in March comparing Moss skillset to LeBrons. Adam: While Moss may share some traits with LeBron, where was the success? The Gators went to the WNIT LeBrons teams compete for championships. Tymraks team dominated the competition in the SEC Tournament like the Heat two rounds of the playoffs if you can remember that far back. Florida outscored opponents 8-1 in the tourney, and Tymrak led the way. She scored in each game as the Gators stormed into the NCAA Tournament. It was clear Tymrak was the best player on the pitch in those games. However, Moss wasnt even Floridas top scoring threat that would be Jaterra Bonds. She wasnt the Gators best rebounder, either. That honor goes to the Indiana Fevers new forward, Jennifer George. Moss was a solid all-around player on a mediocre team. Tymrak was the top player on a very good team. Landon: Moss is still young and has loads of potential. Shes basically LeBron back in the good ol Cleveland days. Right now, she has no help. With a crop of highly touted recruits and transfers joining coach Amanda Butlers squad in 2013-14, Moss should get plenty of assistance. Moss rounded into form at the end of the season and proved why shes Floridas best player. She started the last 16 games of her freshman season, leading the Gators in points (16.7), rebounds (8.1) and assists that stretch. Her dominance in every statistical category during the latter half of the year rings one name: LeBron. Moss was also the only Gator to exceed the 25-point threshold twice this year. I know Im focusing primarily on the end of 2012-13, but Im looking to the future. Tymrak may have led her team in 2012 with nine goals and 12 assists, but she took a team-high 68 shots. This was Tymrak at the peak of her college career. Moss didnt dominate during the beginning of her freshman season, but she improved exponentially and will only get better over the next three seasons. Youll soon witness that. Adam: LeBron was far and away the best player with Cleveland. Moss was not the best player on her team last year, and all the incoming talent you mentioned will make sure she wont be the best player on the team for the next three years. Tymraks stats werent awe-inspiring, her apart from the rest of the team. Like LeBrons dunk on Jason Terry earlier in the year, Tymrak dominated her opponents. Whether she was feeding passes to McKenzie Barney or dribbling around opponents, Tymrak made her minutes count. Not only was she a dangerous scorer, she was a dangerous passer. She had a knack for delivering inside passes to forwards and putting them in position to score. She led the Gators in assists in three of her four seasons. LeBron leads the Heat in assists, as well as points and rebounds. Tymrak led the Gators in goals, assists and game-winning goals. Moss led the team in assists barely.

GORDON STREISANDAlligator WriterFrom baseball in Miami to football in West Palm Beach and track in Gainesville, junior Eddie Lovett has stayed busy his entire life. Lovett is the three-time reigning Southeastern Conference and NCAA champion in the mens 60m hurdles. Lovett set the fourth fastest time in collegiate history when he clocked a time of 7.50 seconds at the NCAA Indoor Champioships this year, but he had never planned to step foot on a track. Born in Miami to a mother who played high school basketball and a father who played minor league baseball, Lovett was destined to become an athlete. Lovetts father, Eddie Williams, was a second-round draft selection for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1991. Williams showed considerable promise as a prospect, being named to USA Todays 1991 Super 25 along with future MLB stars Manny Ramirez, Shawn Green, Cliff Floyd and Dmitri Young. Had it not been for a car accident in 1993, Williams might have reached his full potential. but his foray into the sport was short-lived. His even on his radar. I played football my whole life, he said. I never thought about running track. When I was in the sixth grade, I went out on the track one day. Back then, I was super skinny, and they thought I was a distance runner. I was No, this is not what I want, so I quit. After living in Miami for much of his childhood, Lovett and his family moved to West Palm Beach. My mom just wanted to get out of [Miami]. There was a lot of stuff dealing with my family, so she just wanted to relocate, Lovett said. Lovett said the move was ultimately good for him, but he struggled with the transition. family that I had (in Miami), he said. I had to learn to adjust to the people, especially the girls. The move to West Palm Beach catalyzed Lovetts athletic career. Football was still at the forefront for Lovett, who thrived on the freshman and then the varsity team.. Football was his top priority. He did not start running track until he was a sophomore at Palm Beach Lakes High. junior), I was thinking about transferring to Dwyer just to play football, he said. I talked to my family, and at the last second, I decided to stay. That summer, I went in really focused on football. But Lovetts focus on football was for naught. He suffered a broken arm three games into his senior season. I didnt know what to do, Lovett said. I didnt know how I was going to play football. What if broke my arm again? What if it was going to affect me in track? With football out of the picture, Lovett switched his focus to track and dominated. As a senior, he broke a 20-year-old FHSAA record in the boys 110m hurdles, winning the Class 3A championship in a time of 13.46 seconds, which led the nation. Florida coach Mike Holloway took notice. I actually got a call from one of the alumnis father, Holloway said. Then, I got a call from (Olympian and former Gator) Tony McQuays high school coach (Carnell Coleman). He told me, Theres a guy down here that you need to take a look at. Holloways network of trusted colleagues raved about Lovetts talent. Lovetts coach at Palm Beach Lakes, Jerome Groover, had the highest praise for the senior hurdler. Ive known Eddies high school coach since I was a high school coach, Holloway said. Jerome told me, Look, I think this might be the best guy Ive ever had, which is saying a lot, because hes had some good ones. resulted in a scholarship offer. After arriving at Florida, Lovett lived up to the lofty expectations set by those around him. His freshman year, he became an SEC champion and Mens Indoor Freshman Track & Field Runner of the Year. He was the SEC champion again his sophomore year, and he was the youngest competitor in the mens 110m hurdles at the U.S. Olympic Trials, makof 13.49 at the trials moved him into second all-time in Florida school history. Lovetts trajectory was skyrocketing at UF. It was a comeback story for an athlete who had broken his arm and almost lost all hope for a future in sports. But all the success and accolades Lovett had merited were suddenly put on hold last summer. On July 18, 2012, a little over a week after father was shot and killed in his native Virgin Islands. Williams was found unresponsive in the drivers seat of his car that morning. Perhaps the most heartbreaking detail was that Lovett was rekindling what was once a tumultuous relationship with his father. With a heavy heart, Lovett has continued to perform this season. He set a meet record at the Indoor Championships in March. The minute you get complacent is the minute you make a mistake and look like when I have good practices, I feel like I couldve done better. Im really competitive. Im cool and laid back, but if you give me a challenge Ill probably show you out. Added Holloway: Eddie is the kind of guy where he could have a perfect start and still say it wasnt. Lovetts success has not surprised Holloway. The Gators coach knew he could trust Groovers advice. A hurdler is a sprinter with an attitude, and that describes Eddie Lovett to a T, Holloway said. Hes a sprinter with an attitude when it comes to the sticks. Hes fast. Hes aggressive. You cant be fearful and be a great hurdler. You cant be afraid of the sticks. Since his football career ended prematurely, Lovett shifted his focus to track and earned results. Although he has already won big at Florida, he has set his sights even higher. Lovett will compete in his third NCAA Outdoor Championship in as many years tonight at 8:20; he will run in the prelims in the 110m hurdles his only event. I know what it feels like to hunt, Lovett said. My mentality is: Im No. 1 in the NCAA, but Im not No. 1 in the U.S. Im not No. 1 in the world. 24, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013 Photo courtesy of UF CommunicationsEddie Lovett leaps over a hurdle during a NCAA East Preliminary Round in Greensboro, N.C., on May 24.
