REGINA SINAlligator Contributing WriterBy 10 a.m. Tuesday, locals were already bent over in the rich soil of Porters Community Farm, kneeling and pulling weeds to prepare for planting the next crop: lettuce. After a little more than a year in operation, the farm, located at 518 SW Third St., has grown more than 500 pounds of organic produce and donated it to St. Francis House. Now, as it gears up for the fall growing season, garden organizers are planning a series of how-to workshops to teach residents about gardening. Travis Mitchell, the farm project manager, said since the project started, the farm has continued to expand while also producing full-scale. A November gift of fruit trees from Chestnut Hill Tree Farm will take another year or two to get fully established. Mitchell said one of the upcoming workshops will help residents learn how to start their own vegetable seeds and samplings, and to plant at home. It will be held on Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon, and the public is invited to register online at www.growgainesville.wordpress.com. Another workshop about harvesting rainwater will be held Oct. 5, which will demonstrate how to properly use rainwater in gardens. Zac Totta, a 21-year-old UF sustainability and the built environment senior, said he originally came to the farm because he wanted to learn about growing food and agriculture. Now, he said, hes helping prep the ground for the cooler season and for new crops. Im here to see the process of the produce that we grow, and its nice to spend time doing something physical while helping out the community in some way, said Totta. Donna Smith, director of A to Z Professional Childcare Academy, said shes taken groups to visit the farm during the last year. She said, so far, its had a positive impact. I feel that the vegetables grown over there are quality vegetables, Smith said. That does enhance the health and knowledge, even for the children, as they see them grow.

SARAH LAPPAlligator Contributing WriterOn Monday, Facebook rolled out two new interfaces that will make the social media platform more public. By collecting valuable feedback, its becoming more like Twitter, some locals say. The application programming interfaces (APIs) pull content from users who have publicly posted information, and it may incorporate that information into a public news feed. The interfaces allow major media networks such as Buzzfeed, CNN and NBCs Today show time talk about a given topic. These networks can see the demographic breakdown including the age and gender of whos buzzing about what on Facebook. Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist, said hes excited about the APIs. It wont change us, he said. It will affect companies by giving them access to what people are talking about. They can measure sentiment, cut out stuff people dont like and keep the good content. He said it can also gather valuable information about public opinion, and he said Facebook implementing the platform makes sense because its where many people post declarations about trending topics. Austin Wynn, a 19-year-old UF microbiology and cell science freshman, said he doesnt like the idea of Facebook being scoured for media chatter. If media networks want instant feedback on their show or music, they should search a hashtag on Twitter, Wynn said. Facebook should stay as a place to keep in touch with friends. Lakirra Turner, a 19-year-old UF East Asian languages and literature junior, agreed. She said media networks shouldnt be allowed to search through Facebook because thats not the purpose of that social media platform. I like Facebook more subdued, she said.

The Good Deed Mitzvah Marathon, hosted by the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student Center and Student Group, was intended to give people an opportunity to do a good deed to honor the victims of 9/11. LIFESTYLE RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Contributing WriterUF Health scientists have discovered that the source of throbbing pain in migraines comes from alpha brain waves, not the heartbeat. in changes in how people receive therapy. Neurologist Andrew Ahn and his colleagues have been working on the project for more than 10 years and used techniques involving pulpain. The more that I got into the basic signs underlying the migraine process, the more skeptical I got (about the source of pain), Ahn said. Ahn and his team used dozens of patients over the past year to test the relation between the pulsation patients felt in their heads and their actual heartbeat. Ahn found the two were drastically different. The difference in the two rates led him to believe the throbbing pain had nothing to do with the heart but was actually fully in the brain. The discovery could impact changes in therapy. Most of the treatment given to patients does not cure the source of the pain but simply reduces the amount of pain the patient feels, Ahn said. People view opioids as being truth is that opioids really arent that effective, and for most people, there are really unpleasant side effects it just doesnt work. It doesnt get people back to work. With different types of therapy, doctors can allocate resources in different areas instead of continually using money to pay for treatments that are ineffective, Ahn said. We are taught to guide our treatments by the body systems affected, said Sean Connolly, 23, a second-year UF medical student. In many cases, drugs feed the pain addiction instead of the cause of the pain being addressed, Ahn said. The war on drugs is no longer about illegal drugs, Ahn said. Its about prescription drugs. Thats where people are getting their opioids now. Its not from across the border. Ahn said changes could potentially take up to 10 years before they are seen in the medical world. Migraine research might mean less of a headache for patients THE FREE EVENT WILL BE AT 7 P.M. BILLY JEAN LOUISAlligator Contributing WriterAward-winning journalist and HIV and AIDS activist Regan Hofmann will speak at the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom today. The free event will be held at 7 p.m. and is part of UFs annual Common Reading Program. The UF bookstore will be selling Hofmanns memoir, and she will be signing autographs. Alison Spannaus, the events organizer, said she reached out to Hofmann as a speaker because of Hofmanns personal history with HIV. Hofmann said when she found out she was diagnosed with HIV in 1996, her doctor told her she only had one year to live. With little knowledge of HIV, shed planned her funeral. I really thought of the end of my life, she said. At the time, it was a death sentence. Six years after her diagnosis, she said she realized living a normal life was possible. Hofmann used journalism to raise awareness. She said she put herself on tion she worked on, announcing to everyone she was diagnosed with HIV. She said her announcement shocked her relatives and colleagues. Hofmann said she became an HIV and AIDS activist because she believes what happened to her doesnt have to happen to anyone else. She said it is criminal that we dont do a better job at teaching young adults about the disease.HIV-positive writer speaks ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgNaked Juice may be leaving its customers feeling a little less bare after the conclusion of a class action legal settlement, and UF stuThe company, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, advertises its products using phrases like % Fruit, All Natural and Non-GMO. Recently, plaintiffs in the lawsuit settled out of court with PepsiCo about false labeling of the beverages, according to the website for the lawsuit. The suit alleges that some of the ingredients used in several of the products are not as pure as advertised, includBut UF students like Otto Akin, a 21-year-old economics senior, were unmoved. I understand its false advertising, but it doesnt bother me soy in their products, he said. I dont necessarily equate safety with organic like some people do. As part of the settlement, Naked customers can apply for up to $75 in reimbursement for qualifying products with proof of purchase. Without it, customers can still net up to $45. But along with this consumer friendly format comes worries of fraud. It sounds a bit easily gamed, said Akin. You can just go on there, some random person, and get $45? Frank Torres, a 20-year-old business management junior, said he agrees that the easy money could be tempting to students. Id take the money, he said. Im fairly certain Ive bought Naked Juice sometime in the last few years. The wide scope of the claim, for any individuals who purchased Naked Juice between Sept. 27, 2007, and Aug. 19, 2013, leaves plenty of room for guessing over whether or not an individual purchased the drink, said Torres.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2013 trip in an Oldsmobile with an expired registration and insurance, how she was stopped by police and let off, only to hit a deer and have a cop pull over. The stories were a mixture of hilarious rants, confused but compelling meanderings and captivating dramas. The storytellers stood on stage with The Conchs very own conch shell and had their moment to tell everyone to shut up and listen. And unlike Piggy who held the conch in Lord of the Flies, the participants were not beaten to death if the audience disliked what they had to say. Rather, the audience was friendly. Woody Blue said she thinks it takes a lot of courage to share a part of yourself with strangers and to be vulnerable. It seems everyone listening Tuesday night recognized that. We all know them. There are the people who can spin a za falling to the ground into a gripping 10-minute story. They could be narrators on those murder mystery shows that build the suspense for an hour until dramatically revealing the perpetrator. We also know the people who can drone on about nothing with no punch line in sight. Not unlike info marketers, they keep adding pointless details to try to spice up a dull product, but in the end, its still just a rag to clean things with. But despite the quality of storytelling, the audience still clapped and cheered. It was like in karaoke when the singer doesnt know the lyrics, is tone deaf or chooses Celine Dion, and the audience chimes in to support him or her. The emphasis on community was evident and is representative of the go-local movement that Satchels, Grow Radio and the arts embody. Even the decorations were created from mostly local contributions, from the chandeliers made up of keys to the posts adorned with beer cans. So if you are interested in backing a community radio station, a local restaurant and a dying art form, the tradition of The Conch will continue Oct. 8 with the prompt You wanna hear something really scary. Participants are encouraged to dress in costume for the occasion. There will also be dramatic under lighting to enhance the spooky effect.

The hits music video caught heat from feminist groups for its portrayal of women. The unrated version of the video, found on Thickes VEVO account, features topless models being grabbed at. The single generated attention from critics who claimed the lyrics were rape-y. But people have overlooked the lyrics and enjoyed the tune. I think that its a catchy and upbeat song, so it gets you in a happier mood, said Stephanie Sheridan, a 19-year-old UF biomedical engineering sophomore. UF psychology professor Laurie Mintz doesnt think the song caught a lot of peoples attention because it isnt that out of the norm for us. so ingrained in our culture, in advertisements, in music videos, that we see this as normal, she said. It doesnt even faze us. But Auckland University students Adelaide Dunn, Olivia Lubbock and Zoe Ellwood were outraged after reading the songs lyrics. The 22-yearold women decided to parody Thickes music video for Blurred Lines as part of a revue show. They worked together to come up with a feminist version of Blurred Lines, titled shirtless men clad in tight underwear dancing around Dunn, Lubbock and Ellwood. down from YouTube shortly after being posted. People who tried to watch it were messaging us, telling us the video was gone, Lubbock said. I thought it was unfair ... I think it had a lot to do with the fact that we had a lot of really negative comments on the YouTube. as inappropriate because of the Its a strange thing to see men, like, in a situation that women are in often in music videos, Dunn said. After appealing YouTubes decision, the women got the video back onto YouTube. I think that it shows you what YouTube is about, said 19-year-old Karen Lara, a UF accounting sophomore. You can have the same concept, one with men and women, and the one with women gets taken down. It favors women being shown as sex objects, not men. Ellwood thinks people are taking their song too seriously. We dont literally mean all of the stuff that we were saying, she said. We dont want to castrate men. The girls didnt think they were being too radical when they made the video, Lubbock said. Maybe that has to do with our upbringing and the fact that New Zealand is a really liberal country, she said. Despite the negative feedback, they have received positive responses to their video. Weve had a few messages from men saying that they saw the video, and it made them really uncomfortable, Ellwood said, and they realized that if this was how women felt in everyday life, then they felt that they wanted to change things. international THE VIRTUAL PET FROM SPACE HAS BEEN REVIVED JUST IN TIME FOR ITS 16TH BIRTHDAY. VALERIA YULEEAvenue WriterAlthough the virtual pets quickly went out of style in the s, Bandai Co. Ltd., the Japanese company that created the Tamagotchi brand, has been making efforts to bring them back to life this year. Bandai Co. Ltd. and its North American marketing representative, Sync Beatz Entertainment, announced last week they signed a deal with Los Angeles-based clothing company Mighty Fine, giving them licensing rights lifestyle products, according to Womens Wear Daily. Lifestyle products will include home dcor as well as accessories. The clothing line will include activewear, T-shirts, bodysuits, dresses, juniors. Even though she was fond of the toy, Sanela Music, a 21-year old UF business junior, said, I dont think Id want a pillow or blanket with my Tamagotchi animal on it. Dennis DiPasquale, a UF Ph.D. student in advertising and instructor of Principles of Advertising, said the respective companies might be reviving Tamagotchi because it plays a nostalgic role in the market. He said another reason for the brands comeback might be a chance at a fresh market. The idea of the Tamagotchi is new to its original demographic, he said. (For) the other audiences who have never heard of it its not pass for them because it was never popular for them. So, its an opportunity for it to become popular again. J. C. Penney Professor of Marketing Richard Lutz also believes nostalgia plays a role in Tamagotchis return. Younger kids arent usually making their own purchase decisions, Lutz said. People who played with Tamagotchis in the s are now in their 20s and may buy into the new line for younger generations. Items like this tend to be fad-driven, he said. Alexandra Valverde said she probably wouldnt buy into the new Tamagotchi line because its not her style. I may buy something like that for my niece, though, the 21-year-old UF microbiology and cell science junior said. DiPasquale doesnt think Tamagotchis are a fad thats come back to stay for good. Something to remember is that Tamagotchi didnt stay popular for that long, so I dont think that this will stay popular for that long, DiPasquale said. I think its going to be in and out. (Its) probably a seasonal fad for maybe one year. Andrea Bonvecchio said she wouldnt buy into Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Im all about owning memorabilia of things youre a fan of as a kid, but Tamagotchi was just a short-lived phase that lasted as long as my little Tamagotchis, she said. tThis column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies.

Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Threesomes dont expire after ing chance. I have never participated in one, and I would hate to because I dont want to take care of more than one person in bed, excluding myself. You get what you get, and you dont get upset is my motto in bed. You need to consider this: how good you really are with pleasing women and then double that expectation. Im going to assume you want the two-girl combo threesome package. Thats two vaginas you need to prep and impress. If you cannot execute this, the girls in your bed will get bored of making out in order to make you turn from Play-Doh to rock hard. If you want the two-guys-one-girl combo package, well, thats just too many pegs and not enough holes. I have no idea if you really are missing out on this clich college man-quest, but chances are I didnt change your mind. Dear Friend, Get off your butt, and go to the gym. Think about it like this: You can undo a cookie or doughnut and I get to say that because I than a bubble butt. For example, you cant undo farting in front of your boss, a deviated septum or a fraternity tattoo. Sure, theres laser tattoo removal, but does the embarrassment ever come off?

Ryan Jones / AlligatorJeff Driskel rushes during Floridas 21-16 loss to Miami on Saturday in Sun Life Stadium. Driskel suffered a knee sprain in the game but is expected to face Tennessee on Sept. 21. PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer @phillip_heilman A bye week has come at the perfect time for the Gators. Following a 21-16 loss to Miami on Saturday in Sun Life Stadium, No. 18 Florida has several important players on the mend. With a week off, coach Will Muschamp expects most of them to be healthy enough to return against Tennessee on Sept. 21. Quarterback Jeff Driskel is on crutches after suffering a sprained knee while scrambling against the Hurricanes. Driskel did not miss a snap in the game despite champ said on the weekly Southeastern Conference Coaches Media Teleconference on Wednesday. Were just precautionary, just trying to get him off his knee a little bit; weve got a long season ahead Safety Marcus Maye (shoulder), cornerback Marcus Roberson (knee), left tackle D.J. Humphries (knee) and Buck linebacker Dante Fowler (hip) are all expected to be ready to go against the Volunteers, Muschamp said. Right tackle Tyler Moore, who was called for three penalties against Miami, Humphries along the left side of the line. If the Gators had a game this week, Moore would not be ready to play, Muschamp said. Muschamp added that Moore probnessee. The news is not as promising for freshman defensive back Nick Washington, who suffered a shoulder injury during practice Monday that will require seasonending surgery. Washington re-aggravated a shoulder problem he developed during high school. Muschamp said. It was a non-contact injury, knocking a ball off a guy in a skeleton period. Unfortunate. He was really progressing well at defensive back for us and on special teams. He was doing a As expected, Muschamp said right guard Jon Halapio is nearing a return from injury. Halapio, a second-team All-SEC selecsuffering a partially torn pectoral muscle during the offseason. Prior to the injury, the redshirt senior had made 27 consecutive starts for UF. With nine days to go until the Gators face the Volunteers, Halapio appears to be on schedule to return for the game. Despite the long list of injuries, Muschamp said he would have liked to play this weekend because of the sour taste left in his mouth after Floridas showing against Miami. The Gators racked up more than 400 yards of total offense, but red zone sunk UF. The loss dropped Florida from No. 12 to No. 18 in the Associated Press Poll. Miami, unranked entering the game, vaulted to No. 15. Anytime you lose, regardless of who youre playing next, you want to get back I wish we could line up and play this weekend. Unfortunately, thats the way our schedule falls.

Im comfortable at both. Im verbal commits have decommitted from the Gators since February.
