Its a contest where were harnessing the competitive nature of students to raise their awareness of water conservation, said Stacie Greco, water conservation coordinator for the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department. The competition is a partnership between Alachua County and Sustainable UF, said Lauof Sustainability. Greco said the campaign seeks to emphasize to students in fraternities and sororities the connection between their personal water use and the effect on the springs they like to frequent. Points are earned through two channels percentage reduction in water use and the next being weekly challenges. The challenges include activities such as playing games at the Sustainability Hut, creating banners and attending presentations about water conservation. To participate, the houses must register by Dec. 4, said Nesbit, and the contest will take place from Jan. 20 until March 2. Sustainable UF will be distributing shower timers to all participating houses, as well as werent involved in the contest last year, and all the sorority houses that did not participate. Prizes were donated by Ginnie Springs and Blue Springs, said Nesbit, and include donations to philanthropies and ticket packages to the parks.

He was terrible at it in the movie. Michael Jordan, obviously, was meant to play basketball. If the Looney Tunes characters hadnt abducted him and recruited him to play basketball on their team to avoid being enslaved by Mr. Swackhammer, Jordan wouldve continued to strike out in baseball. Space Jam, aside from bringing us the smash hit song I Believe I Can Fly and following that weird 90s movie trend of combining live action with animation, delivered a thoughtprovoking moral: Stick with what you love. If youre Michael Jordan and you were born to dunk, why in the world would you try baseball if you werent really that jazzed about it? Last week, a study conducted by the ACT revealed that only about one-third of high school graduates chose a college play in the rising trend of students opting for majors such as engineering or business despite their desire to select a major According to the ACT website, Its important for students to have the information they need to make the best decisions about their future, said Jon Erickson, ACT president of education and career solutions. They should be made aware that them a better chance of succeeding and could also contribute to their satisfaction and happiness in school and on the job. A major is what you make of it. There are ways to be pragpassionate about, but if you major in business when youd rather be writing a novel or studying botany, then youre depriving the world of the next Great American Novel or hybrid vegetable discovery. And in the long run, your degree doesnt necessarily dictate your career. Will Ferrell, after all, majored in sports broadcasting. Weird Al majored in architecture, Ashton Kutcher majored in biochemical engineering, and Lil Wayne got a degree in psychology from the University of Phoenix. If you choose a major that makes you happy, theres no telling whether youll go on to become a beloved comedian or rapper but busting your butt taking Advanced Calculus wont get you anywhere. The problem with the real world is that Bugs Bunny wont save you from your bad decisions, and R. Kelly isnt going to score your life. Thats why you need to take charge of your life and choose your paths wisely and were looking at you, high school seniors. 50 TOTAL VOTES44% YES 56% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgWednesdays question: Do you illegally download music and/or movies?

No one else will notice, but you know the train has left the station. Theres no way to stop it. Crippled, weakened and gasping, youve become a prisoner to your own bedsheets. Pillows become either is still coming. In a matter of moments, you turn from a human being to an infant, incapable of controlling your movement, breathing or thoughts. Incomprehensible chaos ensues: thinking of everything at once and nothing at the same time while it feels as if you are being ripped apart. came, without warning or evidence, it all stops. Youre left lying in silence, motionless. Its almost a slap in the face. After that display of unbridled terror, everything goes back to normal. Thats a panic attack. Or at least, thats how I have traditionally experienced them. I began having panic attacks in high school sometimes three in one week. Luckily for me, I had a supportive family and friends who encouraged me to get treatment. My senior year, I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. It took some therapy and a lot of practice to get me where I am today, and the journey is still far from over. But now I know how to deal with my illness. Even when I know an intense panic attack is coming, I know what to do to stop it before it starts. If you have anxiety or experience panic attacks, Im writing this for you: You are not alone, and things dont have to be this way. In fact, anxiety disorders affect 40 million Americans and cost more than $42 billion a year. It can feel isolating, though. who seem to not have a care in the world when youre worried about stuff you know doesnt make sense. Every time I walk in a room, I look for every exit in case someone becomes the next mass shooter. When I walk down the street, I constantly watch cars to make sure they arent running off the road to hit me. I know my worries are mostly unfounded, but they are relentless. Making the effort to feel better is the hardest step, take was thinking it was bigger than me. Any progress seemed null when the next panic attack rolled around. But nothing is bigger than you. Once you realize that, coping with anxiety becomes easier. The next biggest problem I had was getting help. The isolation that comes with anxious thoughts makes But everyone understands anxiety. People know what it feels like. Its an emotion. When you talk to people you trust and care about, your words will not fall on deaf ears. UF has great resources that help immensely. I went to one-on-one counseling at the Counseling and Wellness Center two years ago this semester, and I progressed much faster with guidance than I would have otherwise. Therapy would have been too expensive otherwise, but the center offers free help for students. Dont doubt peoples ability and desire to help you. More importantly, dont forget you have that same capability. Dont be a prisoner of your mind any longer. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His column runs on Thursdays.

The Slackers Guide to Under grad, written by a Wise Former Un dergrad, features tips on how to get by on minimal effort during college, so you can focus on creating memories with friends and then lose them imme diately afterward in a drunken haze. I got the booklets author, Rob ert Berry, of Clear Lake, Iowa, on the phone to talk about his reasons be hind writing a guide for all of the less knowledgeable but equally lazy stu dents out there. Berry, a graduate of Creighton University, said he wanted to start a business and thought writing a book would be a great idea. The pamphlet, sold on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, tells about Berrys ex periences in college and the tricks he used to live out every slackers dream of sleeping in the back of class and still passing. If you are a lazy person, and this is all starting to sound good, let me stop you here. Though it appears Berry does actually have the credentials of a pro slacker, those qualities shine true in demic conundrum that is the slacker. Sure, he graduated. But should you really be taking ca reer advice from someone who is cur rently unemployed? I might be a harsh judge of writing, but anyone who uses common idioms and then misspells them (see: low and behold) should probably refrain from publishing and trying to sell a book. In reality, any slacker that has made probably already knows the tricks of the trade at least any slacker worth his or her salt. Berrys advice of looking at lecture PowerPoints and checking for easy professors on RateMyProfessors.com are fundamental pieces of information just about any student can tell you, and its certainly nothing you should should be all the indication a prospec tive reader needs to realize Berrys masterpiece of two months work is likely an idea he cooked up while en tertaining the thought, How do I get other lazy people to pay me money? So in summary Im glad you have read this book, now go put these prin ciples to use and then with your extra free time grab a beer and with your buddies cheer to the wise former un dergrad whose advice you now keep near.Pro slacker writes guide, forgets commasSEE TINDER, P A GE 11

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2013 THE EXHIBITION DEPICTS THEMES OF LONELINESS AND ISOLATION. STEVEN KATONAAvenue Writerskatona@alligator.orgDipping his hand into a jar of Vaseline, UF art student Zac Thompson covers his lanky upper torso as if he were using sunscreen, thick enough to shine in the sun. For further protection, the 21-year-old UF drawing senior wraps his head in plastic wrap. He then takes a white T-shirt and stretches it over his head. He twists his body inside the shirt until he has the position he wants and sits on a foldout chair in his backyard. His head presses against the shirt, casting an expressionless face into the fabric. with sticky, white plaster. He wears the gunk until the mold is dry enough to take off, grabs another shirt and repeats the process, contorting into different positions. Those plaster molds now accompany his work in the the Gallery at the Reitz Union as part of the Quarantined exhibit he and two classmates put together. The exmain stairway, runs through Dec. 5, and the opening reception is tonight from 7 to 9 p.m. For me, its because I think too much, Thompson said about what makes him want to pull his shirt over his head. Thats where it came from: things in life being overwhelming where you want to revert back to a day when you were a kid. Dounia Bendris, a 21-year-old UF drawing senior, and Hannah Dwyer, a 21-yearold UF printmaking senior, are also featuring work in Quarantined. We all just kind of make work that is based around the idea of isolation, Dwyer said. The exhibition depicts themes of loneliness, removal from society, uncomfortable situations and feeling mind trapped. I see it, instead of keeping something in ... as that idea of being isolated or being quarantined in your head, Bendris said. One of her drawings shows a woman sleeping with a breathing mask over her mouth inside a darkened room, something she saw in a dream. She sketched this piece gers to smudge the thicker, darker lines into most of her work in the gallery. All three artists will be at the opening reception to talk about their work. Additionally, selected works will be for sale for those interested in purchasing art. Free food and drinks will be provided by Reitz Union Board Entertainment. Bendris said outside perspectives are important to artists. I have in my head what I want people to think, she said. But I want to hear what they think.Art students Quarantine work in Reitz Union GallerySteven Katona / Alligator StaffZac Thompson and Hannah Dwyer hang a drawing for the Quarantined exhibition inside the Gallery at the Reitz Union.

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I met this guy a month ago, and we click on almost every level, and its pretty obvious he likes me but Im not sure I can picture myself doing the do with him. Do you think its possible to mesh so perfectly with someone that it doesnt matter youre not 100 percent attracted to them? Dear Friend, This is every guys recurring nightmare a girl who likes him but does not want to bone him. Despite popular belief and my mentality from high school and the majority of college, its not always about sex. Its OK to sleep in the same bed with someone and not end up taking your clothes off, no matter how unnatural it feels. To just sit with someone, talk about things that dont matter and not expect to get physical is called a good friendship. Dont ruin it by forcing yourself to see this person sexually if you dont have those feelings. Enjoy what you have and dont worry about what you feel is expected of you. You dont have to do anything you dont want to do.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2013 OLIVIA MUENTERAvenue WriterGlobal retail powerhouse H&M debuted its long-awaited collaborative collection with high-end designer Isabel Marant this past week. Isabel Marant pour H&M was available for purchase as of Nov. 14 and was met with out-the-door lines and shut down the H&M website. Highly anticipated since its announcement in June, the collection has generated a massive buzz from bloggers, fashion enthusiasts and bargain hunters alike. Following in the recent footsteps of other retail giants 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target debuted in September H&M worked with French designer Marant to create a collection that echoes the style of her main line but is sold at a lower price point. trendy and characteristically French style of Marants main collection and fringed ankle boots. Gabrielle Piloto, a 19-year-old UF telecommunication sophomore and CollegeFashionista.com intern, said the H&M collection has some beautiful pieces. However, with pieces as expensive as $399, she said she also feels the collection doesnt present many bargains for most shoppers. Overall, the collection is too overpriced for the normal H&M customer, Piloto said, no matter how gorgeous the pieces are. Prices aside, designer and mass retail collaborations like the Isabel Marant collection have become massively popular in the past few years. UF marketing professor Richard Lutz noted the collaboration is a type of co-branding, aimed at creating an even more appealing product for consumers. The idea is that there is a strength in both brands, and by combining them, theres an even stronger attraction to the product, Lutz said. Despite the appeal and anticipation of the collection, it seems the Isabel Marant collection will still be slightly out of reach for most student shoppers. Dani Shapiro, a 26-year-old California graduate student and style blogger at DailyDaniBlog.com, said the designer pieces are more accessible in theory than in reality. Sure, its cool that theyre trying to make the brand accessible, but $300 jackets at a fast fashion superstore are hardly accessible, she said. People who cant afford original brand prices still cant afford those prices.H&M debuts collab with French designer LAUREN ADAMSONAvenue WriterIf the publics relationship with Doctor Who were a marriage, right now, we would be searching all of time and space for the perfect gold token to signify our upcoming 50th anniversary. (Also, that would be the weirdest marriage in history, seeing how The Doctors face changes every few years when he regenerates, and there was that 16-year gap when we were separated. But alas, we all know The Doctor would never settle down anyway.) However, we can call ourselves honorary companions and celebrate our devotion to Doctor Who by tuning into the much-awaited anniversary special Saturday. The Day of The Doctor will play on TVs and in selected cinemas globally. And for those of you who will be in Gainesville, you can watch the episode at home on BBC America or get tickets to see it in 3-D at Regal Gainesville Cinema Stadium 14, 3101 SW 35th Blvd. Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat has been notoriously tight-lipped about his plans for the show. But though we may not have a TARDIS, we can somewhat see into the shows future. We know the approaching special will bring together Matt Smiths youthful Eleventh Doctor, David Tennants eccentric Tenth Doctor and John Hurts gray-haired War Doctor. This awkward Doctor-incarnation union is a tradition with Who anniversary episodes. And I imagine fans will love to see more of their favorite character in one place. Its a groovy thing to happen, Smith told TV Guide. The Doctors are like, Youre the Doctor? Youre not the Doctor! Its funny and ridiculous. But the anniversary episode will not be all fun and games. The special will answer questions weve all been asking since the beginning of From the teasers, weve learned the plot will span over at least two worlds and three time periods, including Elizabethan England, contemporary London and the Doctors home planet, Gallifrey, during the Last Great Time War between the Time Lords and the loathsome Daleks. To those of you who are friends with Whovians but have never seen the show, it may seem like we are speaking a different language at times: from a police call box that travels through time, a screwdriver that is sonic, paper thats psychic and a doctor whos not a doctor. And our fandom may seem excessive, what with the numerous Tumblr blogs, cool bow ties and other Who-related apparel. But there is a reason the show has stuck around for 50 years and survived a 16-year hiatus. Its magical, and Im sorry, Im so sorry, if you dont get that.Doctor travels time, space to answer burning questions doctor who

Showing your device too much love could lead your partner According to a recent survey conducted by Victoria Milan, a dating website that provides assistance for people looking to discreetly cheat on cent of Victoria Milan users are unfaithful because they feel there is a lack of attention from their partners. The survey showed that about 50 percent of people on the website shared the feeling of having an unattentive partner. Among the 6,000 Victoria Milan users that participated in the survey, about 60 percent were male, and about 70 percent of all participants indicated they would not be unfaithful at all without the help of technology. In an email interview, Aishah Vassallo, the public relations manager of Victoria Milan, said paying more attention to a device than a partner can weaken relationships, which can lead us many times to look at what is missing in our relationship, she said. At the same time, the use of portable devices and websites like VM can make cheating more discreet and easier than before. However, some UF students and professors are dubious about the merits of the survey. Laurie Mintz, a UF psychology professor specializing in sexual health and behavior, said the results of the survey cannot be generalized to the public outside of the websites users. All we know, then, is that for people [that] are already using technology to help them cheat on their partners, smartphone use may also contribute to the problem of cheating, she said. While many students agree that cheating is an extreme reaction, some think the problem applies to different demographics. I feel like its more a problem with older married couples because when youre our age, you usually havent been with someone long enough to know everything about them so you focus on them more, said Vivek nance sophomore. Still, if I had this problem, it wouldnt urge me to cheat. However, Alex Borkholder, a 19-year-old UF political science sophomore, disagrees. I see a lot of college-aged couples out and on their phone instead of communicating with each other, he by cheating. You talk to your partner.Stay off your phone or fear a straying partner

It marks the beginning 33 years ago, and it makes me sad to not be there together. During this time, I know how lucky I am to have both of you in my life. I could not make it without the love and support of both of you, my wife and daughter. I love you both so much. Next year, when Little Blue Eyes will be a "Super Senior", we'll make it the best ever.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer@jczuprynAt 6-foot-8, Dorian Finney-Smith is a sight to see when he brings the ball up the court. With Kasey Hill out for a month with a high left ankle sprain and Scottie Wilbekin still suspended, coach in his newest big man handling the ball during No. 16 Floridas matchup against Middle Tennessee tonight at 7:30 in the OConnell Center. Finney-Smith, who was suspendto the court against Arkansas-Little Rock and helped the teams scoring in the paint and rebounding. In two games, Finney-Smith has averaged 12.5 points and eight rebounds. After going 4 of 7 from behind the arc, the Virginia Tech transfer is also shooter. Although Florida has already increased its average points by 11.5 per game and rebounds by 10 per game Donovan has to utilize all of the redshirt sophomores skill sets because of a limited lineup. The pressure that youre relieving is most teams are going to play with pretty much two primary backcourt players, Donovan said. So, if [Finney-Smith] is playing the power-forward spot, and hes hes initiating the offense, a lot of times its going to be against a power forward. So, its a little bit different sometimes. So, I think we can, people around in different positions based on mismatches in certain situations. Finney-Smith has experience taking the ball up the court.

PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanSeven starters from a year ago are not the only thing gone from the Gators defense this season. The units ability to create turnovers has also seemingly vanished. Thats something weve talked about a lot, coach Will Muschamp said. Weve gone through and tried to emphasize to our players some opportunities that they had to strip the ball, to take the ball away. Florida has failed to create many turnovers this season. Through 10 games, the Gators have forced six fumbles and intercepted nine passes; their total of 15 takeaways is tied for 83rd in the nation and tied for ninth in the Southeastern Conference. Juxtapose that against the 30 turnovers the defense created last season, and its no surprise the teams overall turnover margin has dipped from plus-15 a year ago to minus-3. When I was at Texas, we had a guy named Earl Thomas, who had 10 or 11 interceptions and four year we werent as good in turnovers [because] Earl Thomas wasnt there. Florida has experienced similar upheaval among the players who consistently created turnovers last season. Matt Elam and Jon Bostic two players who left the Gators for the NFL totaled eight takeaways a year ago. Youve got to develop in that role a little bit, Muschamp said. Weve got to take advantage of those opportunities. Floridas offense has experienced similar regression. the Gators have already coughed up the football 18 times this season. We know how critical it is to our success, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. Weve got to protect the ball and get the ball out on defense. Obviously, were not winning in that VOLLEYBALL ERICA A. HERNANDEZ Alligator Writer @EricaAlyssa Florida freshman Alex Holston has already earned her spot in the Gators starting lineup. But after Wednesday nights three-set victory against Tennessee, Holston proved she is ready to assume Chloe Manns role when Mann graduates after the season. Florida swept Tennessee (25-18, 25-21, 25-17) in Knoxville, Tenn. on Wednesday night. We would call that a great bounceback match, coach Mary Wise said in a postgame radio interview. Holston had 13 of Floridas 47 kills, which led the team. recording no attack or service errors and notching a hitting percentage of .684. patience, Wise said. Recently shes been a little early. Today she showed more patience and great range. But Mann is not gone yet. She made 10 kills with an uncharacteristically high number of errors, lowering her hitting percentage to .300.

They have her down for four errors I think all four of those were missed timing, Wise said. I think for Chloe, she was very intentional. Sophomore outside hitter Gabby Mallette was the only player to record a block in was one of Floridas (25-3, 14-2 Southeastern Conference) two individual blocks the other coming from sophomore outside hitter Ziva Recek. The Gators recorded four team blocks, while the Volunteers (9-20, 1-14 SEC) made no individual blocks and only one team block. blocks we missed, Wise said. Its a place where weve showed signs of being solid. We understand thats not the make of this team. Were not going to lead the country in blocking, but we do think there are more blocks to be had. The Gators trailed during the second set until tying the score at 20. From there, Florida took the lead and held onto it until the end. Tennessee was playing well, and I think we got into that, This should be a little bit easier, as opposed to embracing it, OK, theyre playing better. Lets go, Wise said. We just needed to get into another gear. Wednesdays win marks Floridas 25th of the season and the 23rd consecutive season in which the Gators have won 25 or more matches the longest streak in the NCAA. The Gators return to the nal home match of the regular season. Florida hosts LSU on Friday at 7 p.m. area right now, and its affecting the outcome of the games. Murphy remains questionable: After sitting out of Floridas 19-14 loss to then-No. 10 South Carolina on Saturday, quarterback Tyler Murphy remains questionable to play against Georgia Southern this weekend. Muschamp said Murphy attempted to throw during practice Tuesday, but discomfort stemming from his sprained throwing shoulder remains. Its all about his discomfort level right now, and its gotten better every day, Muschamp said. If you look from Sunday to today, its much, much, much improved. Well just to continue to work through that. Skyler Mornhinweg, who completed 10 of 13 passes for 107 yards with an interception in place of Murphy against the Gamecocks, continues to take If we had to play today, Skyler would start and be ready to go in the game, Muschamp said. Injuries: Floridas patchwork offensive line will continue to lack one of its critical pieces this week. who suffered a sprained MCL about a month ago, was ruled out for the game. Muschamp pate in practice but does not have enough strength in his knee. Muschamp also ruled out Marcus Roberson (ankle) for Saturdays game.

As a junior at Portsmouth (Va.) I.C. son. dling, so I think if coach needs me to play point, Ill do it, Finney-Smith said. Donovan will not have to pressure his forward to handle the ball the entire game. With DeVon Walker, Michael Frazier and Casey Prather able to bring the ball up or Wilbekin returns. We have enough ball-handling to initiate our offense, Donovan said. I think if we are dealing with any kind of pressure, hopefully utilize it as a chance to open up have to take care of the basketball and make good decisions. Although Florida currently ranks 116th in the nation with a 1.2 assist-to-turnover versatility and ability to handle the ball will help limit the Gators turnovers even without a true point guard active on the roster. got size and can rebound.
