Myers said 70 to 80 percent of people infected with the virus are asymptomatic, meaning they dont show signs of the virus. Symptoms are based on the individual in terms of the severity and progression of the disease. Personal barrier precautions are the most effective way to prevent infection from mosquito-born diseases, he said. Myers said people should wear long pants and sleeves if they are outside, use insect repellent, drain standing water around homes and avoid being outside at dusk and dawn. You take into consideration that it only takes one tablespoon of water to breed up to 200 mosquitoes, he said. It doesnt take very much water to create a problem. Walter Tabachnick, director of UFs Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory in Vero Beach, described getting infected with West Nile virus as winning the lottery in reverse. He said there are between 20 and 100 cases of the virus a year in Florida. The more people are exposed to mosquitoes, the more likely they are to be one of those cases. Alachua County has a surveillance system for mosquitoes, including light traps, sentinel chickens and reports from veterinarians and physicians. Tabachnick said it is unlikely a substantial number of cases will occur after this case because its toward the end of the virus season. He said theres no reason to be alarmed because of the single case. The virus is circulating in a lot of places in Florida, he said, and unfortunately, this individual won the lottery ticket the ticket that nobody wants.

Politicians should have integrity, and laws should be upheld and applied by the same standard. Its no wonder, then, that Gov. Rick Scott is rolling out Project Integrity. Unfortunately, politicians in the United States often engage in a dirty habit of doublespeak. Political buzzwords should make every constituent do a double take. Unfortunately but not surprisingly Scotts new plan has nothing to do with integrity. Instead, Scott aims to remove noncitizens from the voting roll, disproportionately affecting Hispanic voters. The singling out a demographic that typically votes blue. Lets talk about how much integrity our governor has. the GOP in the ballot box. According to the Miami Herald, the previous voter purge began with a list of 182,000 names of suspected noncitizens. As time went on, that list dwindled to 2,600 names. Just before Election Day hit, only 198 names were left. Although Hispanic people made up 13 percent of the 11.3 million active registered voters, according to the Herald, they made up 58 percent of the list. The list was so shoddily put together that one CubanAmerican woman named Manoly Castro-Williamson was threatened that she may lose her voting rights even though she hadnt missed a vote in years. In Hillsborough County, the purge was abandoned after several people proved their citizenship. Florida Sen. Bill Nelson also pleaded with Scott to heed the voice of reason and stop an unnecessary campaign. Citing reports from the Associated Press, Nelson blasted the governor and compared his campaign with a similar purge in 2000 that most likely won the election for George W. Bush. The purge didnt stop until the Department of Justice stepped in. It violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965, a law protecting minorities, and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act, governing voter purges. The latter law prohibited removal of the names of ineligiof eligible voters within 90 days of a federal primary or general election. The Voting Rights Act outlawed the practice of redistricting areas historically most affected and was motivated by racism to do so without approval from the Department of Justice. And conveniently for Scott, it was overturned by the Supreme Court earlier this year. In 2014, Scott is up for re-election, and he knows he needs all the help he can get. in the 2010 election, he won by a little more than 1 percent. This time around, he wants to solidify his win. And because its more than 90 days away from the election and the Voting Rights Act is gone, he knows a voter purge can go on with little legal opposition. And dont forget that a purge like this will affect minorities and thus Democrats at a higher rate. Scotts last attempt at a voter purge was staunchly opginalized Floridas largest immigrant population, and it was stopped because it violated not one but two federal laws. Project Integrity shows Florida that its governor has none. Scott is spitting in the face of Florida voters by using legal technicalities for his own advantage. Dont let him.

However, Marc Doussard, a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who coauthored a recent study on fast-food workers who receive public assistance, said this is not the case. According to a University of Califorina, Berkeley, news release about the study, Doussard said, More than two-thirds of core frontline fast-food workers across the country are over the age of 20, and 68 percent are the main wage earners in their families. The median wage for front-line workers at fast-food restaurants nationally is just $8.69 per hour. For families whose main breadwinners are fast-food workers, this presents an obvious problem especially considering most fast-food jobs are parttime. Even for those working 40 hours or more at a fast-food restaurant, $8.69 per hour isnt a livable wage. Because of this, many families of fast-food workers rely on public assistance from programs such as Medicaid, the Childrens Health Insurance Program and the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program more commonly known as food stamps, according to NPR. The analysis co-authored by Doussard found that 52 percent of fast-food workers or their families are enrolled in these programs. According to the study, taxpayers pay $7 billion to fund public assistance for fast-food workers. According to the news release from UC Berkeley, This is the public cost of low-wage jobs in America, UC Berkeley economist Sylvia Allegretto, co-chair of the Center for Wage and Employment Dynamics, said. The cost is public because taxpayers bear it. Yet it remains hidden in national policy debates about poverty, employment and public spending. The news release was funded by Fast Food Forward, a New York City advocacy group pushing for higher wages for foodservice workers. The group, according to NPR, is campaigning for a raise from the $8.69 average to $15 per hour for workers. Conservative economists, however, dont believe this would alleviate the $7 billion Americans spend annually on assisting fast-food workers. NPR quoted Michael Strain, a center-right economist who said raising minimum wage would cause fastfood companies to lay off workers. NPR also interviewed Ken Jacobs, another co-author of the Fast Food Forward study. He said In-N-Out Burger is an example of a very successful, very wages. He also argued that higher wages would result in less employee turnover, which is costly. Its no secret companies thrive when they pay their workers wages that are higher than the national average. Costco, for example, has a starting pay for employees of $11.50 to $12 hourly and has a turnover rate of just 10 percent much less than the national average of 67 percent of part-time workers in the U.S. The numbers dont lie, guys: Higher wages for part-time THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Julia Glum EDITOR Matthew Riva Samantha Shavell MANAGING EDITORS Chloe Finch OPINIONS EDITOR Justin Jonesopinions@alligator.org

Andrew Schulz rolled out his new show, The Hook Up, on Monday night. The series lets singles background potential love interests using social media. Each single goes through a three-act process. In Act I, he or she listens to pitches from four contestants who tout their good qualities. Im going to let them build themselves in a phone interview. In Act II, Schulz brings up the contestants social media accounts to dig up the dirt on them. Act III forces contestants to admit embarrassing details when confronted with their social media evidence. In one episode, for example, Schulz said a guy fesses up to wearing Scooby Doo underwear. But its not all embarrassing. Schulz noted a moment from the show when a male contestant admitted he liked Medieval-style live-action role-playing games, and the girl reacted with delight because she was into Renaissance fairs. Some of that stuff is adorable, Schulz said. Were trying to show you who somebody really is before you go out on a date. If the single chooses one of the contestants to go out with, Schulz said the show will send them on a really sick date in Hollywood including awesome restaurants, clubs and shows. For Schulz, the thrill of the fast-paced, unscripted show is jabbing contestants. I just want peoples good dirt, Schulz said. When I agreed to do the show, [I said], Ive gotta be able to roast them. He said the show should connect well with audiences because using the Internet to vet potential dates is commonplace and effective. Its like Yelp for dating, he said. Theres a review of your guy right there. Schulz said he doesnt expect The Hook Up to compete with other shows that involve a social media aspect such as Catsocial media to vet love interests before feelings develop.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2013 MARJORIE NUNEZAvenue WriterI sat down with up-and-coming, Brooklyn-based group Snowmine Tuesday night in Tallahassee. Chatting with the group was as smooth as the sounds that blared through the speakers earlier that night and made me long to be driven down an open road in the West on a cool, sunny day. The bands sound is hard to classify under any one existing genre, but its Instagram bio describes it as ambient psych pop. Grayson Sanders, lead vocalist and guitarist, said the members ence their work. Sanders studied classical composition at New York University, where he met bassist Jay Goodman. The two quickly re-enacted the experience of passing each other in the hall when Goodman, who studied jazz performance, was holding a bass guitar. I was like, Hey, you play the bass? I do. You wanna start a band? I do. Since meeting about eight years ago, the two have started multiple bands. In the process, they met guitarist Calvin Pia, who studied music technology at NYU, guitarist Austin Mendenhall and drummer Alex Beckmann. Snowmine has been together for almost two years, and theyve been touring for about a year, Sanders said. The members camaraderie and love of food have kept things running smoothly on the road. They keep notes about the restaurants they visit, so if theyre ever in the same area, they know where to stop for food. The Scrambled Diner in Dyer, Ind., is a Snowmine favorite.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 LAUREN ADAMSONAvenue WriterThe latest season in the disturbing anthology American Horror Story has all the elements of a successful Disney Channel original movie or cult CW series. Coven has young adults, an evocative boarding school, magic and a sense of danger. Except, unlike the attractively cast whim-indulgent shows of teenage TV, Coven does not portray a fantasy you want to vicariously live through. Rather, it is your worst nightmare. Like its predecessors, the third season of AHS does not fail to shock our moral sensibilities and leave us craving more. If the opening credits are any foreshadowing of the upcoming season, we can expect dark allusions to slavery, lots of voodoo, mythical creatures and anything Hocus Pocus-related (cats, levitation, potions, pentagrams). The premiere follows Zoe Benson, played by Taissa Farmiga, and her story as to how she ends up in the boarding school with the other gifted girls. She is like Harry Potter when he is still living with the Dursleys, except instead of a Hogwarts letter, Zoe discovers her power through more explicit means. Zoe is the descendant in a long line of witches with a rather creative and bizarre ability that sometimes skips generations, but obviously not hers. She is quickly swept off to school, but instead of a burly but lovable Hagrid-type, she is transported by silent men in suits who look like they are part of the Secret Service. Zoe is dropped off alone in New Orleans outside Miss Robichauxs Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies a smoke screen for its actual purpose as a school for young witches, which is run by headmaster Cordelia Foxx, protrayed by Sarah Paulson. Cordelia traces the history of the house as a safe haven for witches, which she says are a dying breed. The headmaster stresses the dangers of being supernatural in a black-and-white world and the importance of controlling ones powers or risk being burned at the stake. But like the Xavier Institute in X-Men, there is some tension between teacher and back. Other than Zoe, there are only three other students at the academy: a clairvoyant named Nan played by Jamie Brewer, a human voodoo doll portrayed by Gabourey Sidibe, and an arrogant telekinetic movie star named Madison played by Emma Roberts. The antagonist to conscious Cordelia is her less-restrained mother, reigning Supreme witch Fiona Goode, protrayed by Jessica Lange, who believes the young witches need to maximize their power in order to be invincible against humans. Fiona is like a wicked version of one of the Ya-Ya sisters. She dances around in a sheer black robe, reciting spells one moment and reaping her vengeance in another. and she has a dangerous obsession with immortality. I expect this theme of vanity will be a recurring one, seeing how the show opens with a barefaced Kathy Bates painting blood on her face with a makeup brush in order to stay young. If that wasnt enough to her as a psychotic Annie Wilkes hobbling her captives feet in Misery. Bates plays Madame Delphine LaLaurie in AHS, the lady of the household, who is based on a controversial past New Orleans resident. And while everything seems Southern-proper to the outside world, inside and up in her attic, Madame Delphine keeps slaves to mutilate and torture. Show creator Ryan Murphy is known to allude to sensitive historical events as with the Holocaust last season, and this season, I would expect no less. Like the cruel countess Elizabeth Bathory in the legends, Madame Delphine harvests blood and organs because she believes they will give her eternal youth. She also has some kind of sick hollowed-out bulls head on her restrained manservant Bastian and proudly proclaims she now has her very own Minotaur. Think of the Doomsday Killers Four Horsemen reenactment in season 6 of Dexter. If AHS is anything, it is shocking. Some of the surprises are plot twists, and some are just so abrasive to our regular perception that we recoil. In a one-hour episode, the audience is confronted with racial injustice, gang-rape, murder, sadism and persecution, and this is just the beginning. AHS is a horrible show, and we are horrible people for watching it.American Horror Story sets up for a Supreme season Surprises, witchcraft in store

keep moving. Gators go under knife: Coach Will Muschamp announced Wednesday that Easley would undergo surgery today on his right knee in Pensacola with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Jones underwent surgery on his left knee Monday. As the Gators lost two players to seasonending procedures this week, another is Redshirt junior Ronald Powell has missed the last three days of practice due to an ankle injury he suffered in Floridas 17-6 loss on Saturday. Muschamp said he did not know the extent of the injury during Wednesdays weekly SEC coaches media teleconference. Floridas third-year coach expects to know by game time whether Powell will be able to play. He missed all of last season due to two knee surgeries repairing a torn right ACL. Early start time in Columbia: There will not be any nature walks this weekend. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease helped his quarterbacks pass the time awaiting a 7 p.m. kickoff in Lexington, Ky., by taking them on an educational stroll around their hotel. However, with a 12:21 p.m. kickoff at Missouri, Florida will be playing its earliest game of the season and will not have time for any additional activities. Personally, I like the early games just because you wake up and you just go out there and play, right guard Jon Halapio said. The night games, youre just waiting around the hotel the whole day and watching the other games and just very anxious. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2013 NOTES, from page 15Powell misses practice after suffering ankle injury SaturdayTHE RALLYEach week, two alligatorSports columnists will debate the biggest looming matchup in college football. Today, Adam Lichtenstein and Joe Morgan preview No. 5 Florida States showdown against No. 3 Clemson in Clemson, S.C., on Saturday at 8 p.m. on ABC. Adam: FSU-Clemson has essentially served as the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game for the past several seasons. The actual title game in December between the conferences division champions is nearly irrelevant, as the winner of this game has been the pre-eminent ACC team. The last four winners of this annual matchup have won the Atlantic Division, and the last two victors have won the conference. Death Valley will be no different. But unlike last season, Clemson will come out as the team to beat in the ACC and, arguably, the nation. The Tigers already have big wins under their belts. They ended last season with a bowl victory against LSU and rang in the new season with a 38-35 win against then-No. 5 Georgia. Clemson has shown that it can beat top teams from the top conference in the nation. This weekend, it will show that the premier ACC team actually borders the Atlantic. Joe: Well, I hate to burst your bubble right off the bat, Adam, but the states of Florida and South Carolina both border the Atlantic Ocean. Learn your geography, man! When it comes to this weekends game, Im putting all of my eggs in Jameis Winstons basket because, well, hes Jameis Winston. On second thought, the whole egg thing is too much Easter. Its October. I need to get my mind right. Im putting all of my Halloween candy in Winstons Trick-or-Treat bag. The freshman leads the ACC in passer rating (213.9), completion percentage (73.2) and touchdown passes (17). Granted, he hasnt faced a pass defense better than Nevadas 51st-ranked unit, but his numbers are straight out of a video game. Dealing with Clemsons secondary shouldnt lead to a dramatic drop-off. Adam: Tallahassee is much closer to the Gulf of Mexico. The panhandle is barely Florida. We drove through there last weekend, and yeesh, its just miles of nothing. But you already brought up a point I would have made Famous Jameis and the Seminoles have not faced any kind of real competition. Congratulations on your big win against powerhouse Bethune-Cookman, FSU. The only decent team Florida State has played is an overrated and overmatched Maryland squad in front of 75,000 screaming, chopping Noles fans. The Terrapins arent even receiving votes in the AP or Coaches Polls anymore! For as impressive as Winston has been this season, the fairy tale has to end sometime. It is ridiculous that people are saying that he might be the best quarterback in Seminoles This is a school that has two Heisman-winning signal-callers. If you want to talk quarterbacks, talk Tajh Boyd. The senior has already thrown for 3,800 yards twice in his career. Hes a proven commodity on his way to the best season of his career. Boyd is going to show Winston what it means to be a quarterback in the ACC on Saturday. All the freshman needs to do is sit back and watch. Joe: Im sure Boyd has plenty to offer in terms of experience to a young guy like Winston, but hell have even more to offer FSUs secondary. Boyd averages nearly 31 throws per game, giving the Noles second-ranked pass defense 31 chances to make something happen. with 53.6 points per game and fourth nationally with 549 yards per game, Boyd has little margin for error against a ball-hawking defense aiming to add to its total of six interceptions this season. Meanwhile, Winston will add to everything but his interception tally of two. Clemson has faced only one passing offense ranked among the nations top 50 and that was Georgia. If the Bulldogs had any kind of defense this season, Aaron Murrays 323 passing yards would have been enough to beat the Tigers. Adam: The Seminoles may have a top pass defense, but have they faced a receiver anywhere near as electric as Sammy Watkins? The junior is one of the best receivers in the nation (and is Florida defensive back Jaylen Watkins half brother). Boyd and Watkins have combined to be one of the most dynamic duos in the country, and they are going to put FSUs defense to the test. Expect the Seminoles pass defense to fall a few spots after Saturday. Joe: They may fall a few spots, but the Seminoles wont drop too far. Florida State isnt ranked second against the pass for nothing. But even if this game devolves into a shootout, I still like the Seminoles chances. make a critical stop than Clemson. The Death Valley crowd cannot and will not intimidate Famous Jameis. If you thought the Winston hype was insane during the seaWho will win the FSU-Clemson game?
