After a week from hell, No. 20 Florida traveled to the Bluegrass State in need of a boost. Tyler Murphy provided one the Gators. With a 26-game winning streak against Kentucky on the line, the redshirt junior quarterback completed 15 of 18 passes for 156 yards. He added one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown en route to Floridas 24-7 win on Saturday night at Commonwealth Stadium. The victory helped UF (3-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) move past the season-ending injuries to starters Jeff Driskel (fractured sley (right ACL tear) for the moment. When you go through Jeffs situation and then Dominiques situation on Tuesday night, they are very frustrating, but you cant always control your circumstances in life. You can control your vision, coach Will Muschamp said. I told our players, No excuses and no regrets. Thats just who we are. We have an expectation level here at the University of Florida in what were going to do and where were headed with our program. That vision will include Murphy for the rest of this season. Through about eight quarters of play, he has lifted UFs expectations and added a sense of newfound promise. 13 passes and all 11 he threw breakout performance by sophomore running back Matt Jones, the Gators quelled any pregame optimism the Wildcats (1-3, 0-1 SEC) had against their depleted opponent.

Glover said there are currently seven degrees ready for launch, with an increase of next six or seven years. According to the plan, those programs will have to either be among the states top 15 employment demand groups or among the top 15 most demanded at UF. Glover said the standards for admission and coursework will be the same for both online and traditional students. UF will not compromise on the rigor of its online programs, he said. We will only accept students who can accomplish and He said current online students are invited to walk at graduation, but the logistics for UF Onlines graduation are still being decided.

rooms to accommodate the additional students. Andy McCollough, associate provost for teaching and technology, said there are currently 24 courses in production, and by January, there will be 42 available. The challenge has been not getting courses up but how to get courses with emphasis on face-to-face like laboratories, he said. Glover said one of the possible solutions is the creation of Gator dens, where groups of students in other areas can gather to study, interact and watch the football games. Services such as ProctorU, which allows a third party to monitor students screens, are being considered for proctoring solutions, Glover said. According to the UF Online business plan, expected revenue from the program in 10 years is $76,621,846. Glover said that half of the program, with the other half being spent on supporting university research. Betty Phillips, the new executive director of UF Online, wrote in an email shes eager to get into the details of implementing the program. It is an interesting challenge to replicate all aspects of face-to-face teaching online, she said. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2013Emily Cochrane / AlligatorUF alumnus PJ Arroyo, 24, rides a unicycle down a slope with Florida State University senior Maria Vaccaro, 21, at the Gainesville Unicycle Fest on Saturday. The festival included events such as races, hockey, limbo and football, all balanced on one wheel. MOST SPECTATORS WERE FAMILY AND FRIENDS. EMILY COCHRANEAlligator Contributing WriterWhile the Gators were busy taking care of business in Kentucky this weekend, another group gathered to play a different kind of football in Ben Hill challenge was staying balanced on a single wheel. The Gainesville Unicycle Unit, a branch of the Objects in Motion juggling club, hosted the second annual Gainesville Unicycle Fest on Friday and Saturday. Events included races, hockey, limbo, sumo wrestling, jousting and unibash, a cross between football and tag. First and second place competitors received dollar store prizes for their success a toy car for the fast race, a plastic chest plate for jousting and a Ninja Turtle towelette for the slow race. We had been to festivals in Atlanta and Tallahassee, and we were inspired to make our own, said Shannon Crawford, a 22-year-old political science senior who served as the main organizer and the unicycle clubs spokeswoman. Crawford has been an avid unicyclist since receiving one eight years ago. Our ultimate goal is to have a really big festival where everyone from the southeast U.S. comes, she said. The club hosted about 25 cyclists and some spectators who wanted to try unicycling and juggling. Though most of the cyclists in the club were current UF students or UF graduates, unicyclists came from Orlando and Tallahassee to compete as well. Most spectators were friends and family. No one unicycles in Orlando. I like the whole group, said Mikhel Barkan, a 28-year-old University of Central Florida alumnus who drove up to attend the festival. Youre not just riding by yourself. Youre with a group of friends, and thats more fun. Arielle Walsh, a 21-year-old UF anthropology junior, said she was happy just watching. I dont even like sports, Walsh said. But here I am, watching hockey and loving it. PJ Arroyo, a 24-year-old UF alumnus, believes anyone can learn to ride a unicycle. We love teaching new unicyclists, said Arroyo. Anyone can learn through sheer willpower, enough practice and enough falling off.Gainesville Unicycle Fest celebrates one-wheel wondersCRIME KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writerkvarn@alligator.orgA Gainesville man arrested on an aggravated child abuse charge was found unconscious in his Alachua County Jail cell Saturday night after trying to hang himself with a bedsheet. Austin Piper Dionne, 22, was rushed to UF Health Shands Hospital after Alachua 9:45 p.m., said Alachua County Sheriffs Dionne was arrested Friday afternoon after an investigation alleged he shook a 3-week-old child several times Sept. 19 when he became upset playing Xbox, acOn that afternoon, Dionnes wife went to work and left Dionne at home with the child and a 10-month-old sibling. At about 9 p.m., Dionne called his wife and told her something had happened to the baby. Dionnes wife told him to hang up and call 911. Dionne called and told dispatch the baby had fallen out of a rocking chair. An ambulance arrived at the house, located in the 1900 block of Southwest 69th Drive, and drove the baby to Shands, according to the report. A report was later submitted to the Child Protection Team because Dionnes story wasnt consistent with the babys injuries. The following day, deputies arrived at the hospital to investigate, according to the report. The baby was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with severe injuries, including bleeding to the brain, and had a handprint on his side. At the hospital, Dionne told investigators he accidentally kicked over a chair while trying to push away a cat nipping at the babys feet. The chair fell on the baby, and Dionne said he shook the child to keep him from losing consciousness, according to the report. Investigators met with Dionne on Friday for a follow-up interview at the sherchild and lying about his previous stories. Dionne told police he became frustrated with the babys crying while playing Xbox. He kicked the childs seat, and the baby started crying more, according to the reover, causing the child to fall on his head and the chair to fall on top of the child. Dionne said he started shaking the child to keep him conscious, according to the report. Deputies arrested him on a charge of aggravated child abuse. He was booked into jail with a $1 million bond. Forgey said Dionnes condition at Shands is undetermined. He added that the investigation surrounding the hanging is ongoing.Man with $1 million bond tries to hang self after abuse charges ONLINE, from page 124 courses in production RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Staff WriterJoe Gazzam, now a screenwriter and soon-to-be novelist, used to work at Sears. I just remember having this epiphany where I just didnt know really what I wanted to do with my life, Gazzam said. I ended up at Sears, and there was this one day where my district manager came in there, and he was screaming at me for not arranging the underwear rack properly. I was thinking, What am I doing? the department store, hiding behind a briefcase. Now the Fort Lauderdale native and UF alumnus is releasing his 22. The story follows the tale of Jason, who is placed in Blackenbush Penitentiary, which is eventually overrun by prisoners. Gazzam, who graduated from UF in 1991 with a degree in accounting, has lived in Los Angeles working as a screenplay writer for more than 10 years. His work includes 21 Jump Street, Step Up Revolution and Disneys Hawaiian Adventure. The one thing Hollywood says is If you dont want a bunch of notes, you should write a novel. So, they hang it over your head thinking youre never going to do it, but I was like All right, I can write a novel. Gazzam said the allure of writing without the fear of having the product heavily edited was one of the main reasons he decided to write Uncaged. The 45-year-old is having Uncaged published through ZOVA Books and plans on going on a book tour after the novel is released. By going through ZOVA, he instead of 6 percent with a larger company like the Penguin Group, Gazzam said. Gazzam may be helped by his alma mater, as the UF Bookstore favors having UF authors on the shelves and encourages book signings, said Lynne Vaughan, the director of the bookstore.

The scientists in question were contesting the new journalism building in the works to be built near Florida Gym. Apparently, construction would throw off the results of their running experiments. Sept. 29, 1988 The agricultural plots by Lake Alice lost their straw watchdog, Mop Top Moore. The 6-year-old scarecrow was last seen wearing an orange in her left hand and a pinwheel in her right.

Sept. 29, 1998 Traders Gatorland won its battle against City Commission and was able to keep dancing the night away butt-naked. The 13th Street business contested a 3-year-old law that would have prevented it from serving alcohol and allowing nude dancing. The commission vote was split 3-2 to exempt the 25-year-old bar from the ordinance for the next seven and a half years. Oct. 3, 2000 A local pastor wanted more than just a warm bed for one night for the homeless. John Deane reached out asking for volunteers so he could establish a regeneration program.

Earth Pets Treat Truck, which Dive rally debut alongside other vendors. Kat Drawdy, the trucks owner, originally decided she wanted to sell treats out of her car at a duck pond where many locals often walk their dogs, and the idea grew into the food truck. Drawdy said the trucks best-selling item is the Bacon Peanut Barker frozen yogurt from The Bear & The Rat, a Denver-based small business. Another popular treat is Bowser Beer, a nonalcoholic dle Brew and Beefy Brown Ale. Customers often pair the beer with peanut butter pretzels, she said. Ashley Gallagher, a Gainesville woman, ordered a pint of frozen yogurt for her boxer, Lexi, and Staffordshire terrier, Buddy. Now that she knows about the Treat Truck, Gallagher said she would be more inclined to go to future food truck rallies if she knows it will be there. It seems pretty reasonably priced, she said.Food truck rally caters to different breed ITS A FIVE-YEAR AWARD. LAUREN ADHAVAlligator Contributing WriterThe Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics at UF was regrant from the National Institutes of Health. Metabolomics is the study of small molecules, called metabolites, that are a byproduct of the metabolic process. They help sustain life by converting energy from food. Arthur Edison, UF professor of biochemistry and molecular biology and director of the center, said every living organism has metabolites. The main reason why UF was picked for this is because we have a lot of expertise in the methodology, the instruments and the techniques of developing new ways to understand metabolites, said Richard Yost, professor of chemistry and co-director of the center. One of the studies the center is working on now is using metabolites to discern the differences in cells of people with muscular dystrophy and healthy people. You really need to look at the small molecules the tools of the cell to really understand how organisms work, Yost said.Grant gives UF center funds to study life

Well make a bold claim and say this news is even more heartwarming and inspiring than the bunny that adopted a group of piglets. According to CBS News, UNAID released a report earlier this week about global rates of HIV. The rate of new HIV infections decreased by 33 percent between 2001 and 2012. The most major progress has been in stopping the spread of the HIV virus to children since 2001, theres been a 52 percent crease has been credited to the fact that more pregnant women with HIV, especially women with low incomes, were provided with antiretroviral drugs. These drugs prevent the HIV virus from progressing into AIDS, and they prevent the transmission of HIV from the mother to the unborn child. Along with increased resources for pregnant women with HIV, a number of factors may have contributed to this drop in infection rates. The CBS report stated that the World Health Organization has promoted earlier treatment of HIV to delay and stop the progression of HIV into AIDS. In addition, the WHO has supported the use of safer, simpler medications to help those with HIV live longer, healthier lives. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a drug that would help prevent the spread of HIV among users of injectable drugs such as heroin and methamencouraging doctors to prescribe the daily AIDS medication to injectable drug users, heterosexual couples with HIV infections and high-risk gay men. In 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Act Against AIDS, an initiative aimed to educate Americans about the risk of AIDS and combat complacency about the spread of HIV. The campaign targeted the hardesthit populations: gay and bisexual men, African-Americans and Latinos. The campaign is in alignment with the National AIDS/HIV Strategy, which was launched in 2010. Thirty years ago, we wouldnt be having this national discussion about the dangers of AIDS. Those affected in the 1980s, especially gay men in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, had little resources and dealt with isolation, fear and the crippling side effects of the disease most notably, severe imable at many places in America including UF, where testing comes at no cost to students through GatorWell. Government spending in the area of AIDS education and prevention and the work of activists such as writer Edmund White have produced a positive, tangible change over the past decade. Now, I think theres every reason to be hopeful. It really is more like a disease like diabetes, White told CNN in 2011. There are a lot of inconveniences, but you can go on living. And I would say AIDS is about like that now.Reality redneck TV is not representative Attention TV fanatics of America: the Kardashians of reality royals. The fellas of Duck Dynasty made history in August when their season 4 premiere became the most-watched reality telecast of all time. They had 11.8 million viewers, topping even the popular competition show Americas Got Talent. A real-life version of The Beverly Hillbillies, Duck Dynasty is one of the latest installments in a new strain of reality shows starring Americas blue-collar population. In this particular show, a family makes its fortune selling duck calls, and they combine new money with their oldSouthern lifestyle. Producers are strutting out regular Joes from across the South in shows like Welcome to Myrtle Manor, Redneck Island, American Hoggers, Swamp People and MTVs Big Tips Texas and Buckwild. Accidental child star Alana Thompson and the family of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo have become famous for nothing more than eating sketti topped with butter and ketchup while spewing phrases like, You better redneckognize. The excessive coverage of redneck culture is promoting a misunderstanding of life in the South by capitalizing on the hillbilly stereotype and glossing over the rest. These shows are no different than Jersey Shore, which depicted a subculture as the norm. Theyre problematic in that they perpetuate detrimental stereotypes and even create new ones. Unfortunately, those negative images dont affect just one state, but everyone below the Mason-Dixon line. U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued a statement to MTV asking that they cancel Buckwild to avoid misrepresenting the states youth based on ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia. in the past, painting its inhabitants as inbred, incestuous and downright stupid. So why turn them into a collective cash cow after all this time? The obsession with these series is likely a result of the economy. Americans are tired of watching the rich folk spend egregious amounts of money and live in a consequence-free fantasy land. Maybe we like the redneck shows because theyre about families, many of which are simply trying to get by. These are two ends of a spectrum, and whether we want to accept it, its hard to ignore which end were closer to. tablished market, the number of redneck reality shows is skyrocketing, each a little more contrived than the last. Even Americas beloved Duck Dynasty now thrives by selling its back-country charm in the form of shirts, audiobooks and even childrens toys. These guys would have never opened their own Twitter accounts, but they have those and more, including regular Google Hangouts and a Beard Yourself app for smartphones. If the authenticity and relatability of these people were the original draws, the rise in corporate involvement could lessen the charm of the shows. Like any trend in the realm of television, this too shall pass. Rednecks, although various and comically multifaceted, will eventually be replaced by another subculture. America loves its niche dwellers the ones as intriguing and horrifying to watch as the proverbial car crash. Until then, remember that Alana Honey Boo Boo Thompson is to the South what Nicole Snooki Polizzi is to New Jersey a caricature, a stereotype and a non sequitur in the context of the real people around whom she lives.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Once, I was an uninformed student. When I came to UF in the Fall of 2011, I had no idea what Student Government did, much less the Senate. Someone I went to high school with told me to get involved and to join the Students Party. I thought I was serving the Student Body, but once I became a senator, I realized that unlike what I was initially led to believe the differences between the Swamp Party and the Students Party were not ones of integrity or ideals. The key differences between the Swamp Party and the Students Party were the levels of dedication, hard work and commitment to serving the Student Body. Halfway through my term, it dawned on me that the Swamp Party was the party of results and the party that had a vision for a better tomorrow. When I worked to improve bus service on the weekend for my constituents who live south of Archer Road in District D, members of the Swamp Party were the ones who assisted me every step of the way. Despite the fact that I was a Students Party senator, leaders in the Swamp Party gave me direction, guidance and a helping hand. In my time as a senator, both as a member of the Students Party in the past and currently as a member of the Swamp Party, I have seen what the Swamp Party is capable of doing. The Swamp Party candidates individuals to represent the 50,000 students of the Gator Nation because the Swamp Party always ensures the students needs are met and their voices are heard. I fully support, endorse and trust in the Swamp Party because the members of the Swamp Party us. I joined the Swamp Party embodies the ideals of UF, and it makes the students a priority. Today and always, I throw my full support behind the Swamp Party. I hope all of you do the same. TK Yang is a District D senator up for re-election.I support the Swamp Party: Heres whyGuest columnDespite dozens of attempts to repeal it, key provisions of the Affordable Care Act commonly known as Obamacare go into effect Tuesday. Open enrollment in state health insurance exchanges runs until March 31, 2014. If you miss the initial enrollment period, another one opens in October 2014. Naturally, freedom is about to die. The conservative Heritage Foundation backed a similar health care reform package in the 1990s, meaning that the Affordable Care Act is most certainly the most socialistic, communistic and anti-American piece of legislation ever passed into law. Also, the law might actually work. Yes, Republicans across the country boldly labeled Obamacare a failure before key provisions were implemented and declared it unconstitutional even after the conservative-leaning U.S. Supreme Court ruled the law was acceptable. Congress is oh so functional. Last week, I wrote about letting the GOP pass everything to prove them wrong. By that same token, the GOP is taking the opposite approach to the Affordable Care Act. If the law is truly an affront to democracy and freedom, why not let it go into law, prove its a failure and then try to repeal it? Instead of spending valuable legislative time working on alternative solutions to our health care crisis, Republicans in Congress and throughout the country decided that bashing the law was a far better use of remillions of uninsured Americans. Despite attempts to sabotage the law, the returns are promising before the open enrollment period starts. The expected cost of insurance in several states pected. While Republicans continue to push the notion that insurance premiums will rise, were starting to see the opposite. Honestly, if you look at the facts, we shouldnt be surprised. The idea of the insurance exchanges is to pool everyone who wants insurance together, thus lowering the cost to the individual. Its similar to an employer-based health insurance plan where your premiums cost less because your employer is purchasing insurance in bulk rather than just for one person. If you have health insurance currently, nothing changes. If you dont, the state of Florida has 102 insurance plans under Obamacare, and the average premium for a 27-year-old is a mere $229 before a subsidy. Overall, this sounds like a pretty fair deal, so why spend all of this time trying to kill a constitutional law rather than looking at the Easy. Its all about the history books. President Barack Obama made history when the Democratic-led Congress passed his signature health care bill. Few times over the last century have presidents solved our health care crisis. In fact, its a battle that dates back to Theodore Roosevelt. Republicans in Congress overwhelmingly voted against the Affordable Care Act, and many members have spent what seems like every waking hour since that vote trying to repeal it. If the law is successful and millions of Americans suddenly have access to affordable health insurance, and we can start to end the nightmare that is our health care system, Obama wins, and Republicans lose. Despite the Tea Party wave of 2010, Republicans took a beating in recent elections. President Obamas resounding victories in 2008 and 2012 helped solidify the notion that Republicans have a long way to go to stay competitive on a national level. Convincing the American people and themselves that Obamacare truly is the root of all evil and the most un-American act in history, is the only way the GOP stays competitive in upcoming national elections. If the Affordable Care Act is a success, coupled with a drastically improved economy, the Republican Party will suffer yet again in the 2016 elections, even if they put Tea Party darling Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at the top of the ticket. cause they understand the consequences of succeeding. You may not agree with them, but they certainly arent stupid. They just want to win elections. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning. His column runs on Mondays.Like it or not, Obamacare is here to stayColumn Big Tobacco wants to increase cigarette sales in Florida, and theyre looking for Gators to help them do it. Altria Group, the parent company of Philip Morris USA and the largest cigarette manufacturer in the country, will be at the Career Resource Centers Career Showcase on Tuesday. The company is recruiting for a sales manager position in Florida. If youve seen a box of Marlboro cigarettes, youve seen what Altria produces. The University of Florida promotes its tobacco-free policy with pride, yet Big Tobacco will be given the opportunity to grow, to thrive, to promote the use of products that, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, kill more than 400,000 people each year. The university prohibited tobacco use on all universityowned property on July 1, 2010. For the past three years, UF has encouraged students, faculty and visitors to remember and remind others about the policy whenever they see cigarettes, cigars, electronic cigarettes and similar products used on campus. UF spokesman Steve Orlando told the Gainesville Sun in 2010 that UF adopted the policy to help people live healthier lifestyles. UF is proud of its position as a tobacco-free campus. But where we see pride, Altria sees an opportunity to build its market. Altria sees UFs brilliant students as people who can help sell cigarettes. But lets be clear: When Altria sells more cigarettes, more people die. Tobacco use is the No. 1 cause of preventable death in the United States, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We spend more than $96 billion in health care expenditures related to tobacco-related illnesses each year. Florida alone spends more than $6 billion annually on health costs directly related to smoking, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids website. Im a proud Gator, but on Oct. 1, Ill be a devastated one. Big Tobacco will sit in the Stephen C. OConnell Center and recruit my peers to sell tobacco products. Neither cigarettes nor Big Tobaccos recruiters should be allowed on campus. Tobacco is a legal product, but UF has made a decision to ban tobacco on campus. If weve banned smoking on campus, we should not allow the industry to come and recruit our most talented students. Gators should be faced with opportunities to give back to their communities, not given opportunities to sell products that will kill them. Mina Radman is a UF journalism senior.Big Tobacco should not be allowed to recruit on campusGuest columnMina RadmanSpeaking Out TK YangSpeaking Out Letter to the EditorResearch SG candidates and voteDear Gators, As Im sure most of you know, Fall elections start Tuesday and will continue through Wednesday. This semester, the Student Body will elect 50 senators who will represent the different residence halls and geographical areas surrounding campus. Student Government elections allow students to voice their concerns through the power of voting. I value and understand the importance of these elections. I encourage all of you to research the candidates and parties on the entire Student Body will join me in honoring the democratic representation that we enjoy here at UF. Go Gators!

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2013LIFESTYLE BAILEY MULLINSAlligator Contributing WriterAt an event where students were encouraged to let go of their secrets, many walked their heads. Whisper, an app which allows users to anonymously share their deepest secrets, planned to host a balloon release Friday at the Let Go With Whisper event on Turlington Plaza. But with environmental activists protesting the release of the balloons into the atmosphere, students brought their purple balloons with secrets inside home instead. Some whispers on the app range from I have a crush on my fraternity brother to My friends and I take real estate signs at night and put them on other houses. Whisper is a raw view into what really goes on on campus, said Michelle George, a 21-year-old public relations senior and creator of the event. It makes people feel as though theyre not alone, George said. The purple balloons symbolized a message in a bottle, she said. Whisper is a free iOS and Android app. The app allows users to scroll through other peoples anonymous whispers and sends usa secret. resentatives at UF. The app has representatives at 30 schools across the country and is one of the fastest-growing apps, she said. George said when she heard about the opportunity to work with Whisper, she jumped at the chance. The app, in general, helps people, she said. It keeps people connected. Kateria Wynn, a 20-year-old advertising junior and Whisper campus representative, said the app helps people express themselves. two hours, Wynn said. Upon seeing the booth, Genevieve Hyppolite, a 19-year-old microbiology sophomore, said, Oh, Whisper! I love that! She said she likes the app because it is funny, and people can get stuff off their chests. She has been using Whisper since the Fall of 2012. Although the balloons were not released, Hyppolite said she still felt good writing it down.Students cant escape secrets JENNIFER CHOWAlligator Contributing WriterDespite doubling its hours from 20 to 40 a week, students are still pointment at the sexually transmitted infection clinic. Each week, 60 slots are available to students. Since the centers opening in Fall 2012, the slots have been completely booked every week, said Rosemary Dougherty, health educator for the Alachua County Health Department. Provided by the Alachua County Health Department, a satellite clinic in the Student Health Care Center at UF offers free-of-charge STD tests to students that will stay off their UF records and away from their parents mailboxes. We kind of worked around the main problem the school brought to our attention of students not wanting to get tested because it was expensive, and their parents erty said. Dougherty explained that this hosted by the health department on campus. The clinic has a separate system from UF, so neither has access to each others records. It was three years ago when everything changed for us, said Phylis Craig, associate director of nursing at the Student Health Care Center. STD-testing prices went sky-high when we were put under the umbrella of the College of Medicine and had to apply all their pricing, which were outside clinic charges. Craig said they wanted a more economic way for students to get tested. Currently, Alachua County ranks fourth highest in the state for STDs, Craig said. We see asymptomatic students at the clinic. Many students tell us they heard about the clinic from a friend who tested positive with no symptoms, Dougherty said. Alexandra Stephan, an 18-yearold health science freshmen, said she didnt know about the clinic until recently. The fact that testing is not only a hundred times more appealing for any student, she said.STI clinic keeping slots filled with students getting testedIt doubled its hours to 40 We see asymptomatic students at the clinic.Rosemary Doughertyhealth educator It makes people feel as though theyre not alone.Michelle GeorgeUF public relations seniorMatt Riva/ Alligator StaffBreaking BridgeThe northbound lanes of the 2100 block of Southwest 13th Street were closed Sunday night after the DNA bridge knocked a trailer off a tow truck near Archer Road, as seen in this stitched photo. The trailer had been damaged in a previous accident, said Sgt. Barry Kays of Gainesville Police. The Florida Department of Transportation deemed the bridge safe. THE LIGHT HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED YET. CHRISTINE FLAMMIAAlligator Contributing WriterA new neon green bike light produced by a British student hasnt hit the marketplace yet, but some locals anticipate it could make night riding safer. Others are not convinced. A British product design student invented the light, called Blaze. It emits a neon-green laser image onto the street 16 feet in front of the bicycle to help protect night bike riders, according to a CNN story. But John Savona, a UPD bicycle light concerns him because it is not what people on the road are used to seeing. Im not really convinced, he said. It looks like a huge distraction. The item has not yet been released, and no prices are listed yet on the products website, blaze.cc. UF bicyclists are required by law to ride with a headlight and a taillight at night. Fred Lintz, Gator Cycle manager, said that headlights and taillights are really what riders need to stay safe and visible while riding at night. A lot of people try to pass by the legal minimum and dont understand how important it is to let people know youre coming, he said. Emily VanGelder, a member of Team Florida Cycling, said the Blaze light could make night rides safer. I dont think headlights and taillights are effective enough, said VanGelder, a 20-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore. I think it would improve visibility a lot. She said the neon green color is the best part of the light because it would not blend in with car lights on the road. VanGelder said the Blaze light could help, but it doesnt mean night riding shouldnt be taken seriously. Im just extra cautious because I know a lot of the drivers arent looking out for me, she said, so I have to look out for myself.Bike light might help riders
