FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 Matthew Martyr / Alligator StaffFresh MovesPi Delta Psi celebrated its 20th anniversary on Thursday by performing a dance style called stepping and strolling and serving cake on Turlington Plaza. ROBIN ANDREWSAlligator Contributing WriterIsaac Jones lives in the echoes of Pleasant Streets heyday. Jones, 68, was born and raised in the 20-block district and fall of the black community based there. Gainesvilles Matheson Museum opened an exhibition called Life on Pleasant Street to showcase the neighborhoods roughly 150-year history in honor of Black History Month. It will be open through May at the museum, located at 513 E. University Ave. Freed slaves from South Carolina founded the neighborhood, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. It later became a local center for civil rights advocacy. Jones, an owner of the White & Jones building and 2 Friends Coffee Shop, located at 1001 NW Fifth Ave., said he was not old enough to take part in activism efforts but will never forget the hardships of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, an era the museums exhibition will highlight. Oral histories play in the background on the exhibition helmina Williams Johnson, a former music instructor at Lincoln High School, and former Lincoln High School principal A. Quinn Jones, who is credited with bringing education to Pleasant Street. The exhibition illustrates the communitys progression from its foundation of Christian faith to its development into a hub for education and activism. The exhibit also includes the belongings of A. Quinn Jones. Bus tours through the Pleasant Street district will begin Saturday, and tickets cost $30. Megan Covey, a Matheson Museum technician, said the exhibition is a great way to learn more about the community. Sometimes, you dont naturally have contact with all of the diversity cities like Gainesville have to offer, Covey said. This is just a great way to learn more about the place we all live and the history we share. Stephanie Pastore, also a museum technician, said the exhibits purpose is to foster curiosity and educate visitors about the neighborhood. I think that part of this exhibition is to highlight the parts of history that, for so many generations, historians looked the other way, and the community looked the other way, Pastore said. I think thats a way of building a bridge between the Pleasant Street community and Gainesville. For people whove seen the communitys change, the exhibition is a way to recognize what once was. While residents rent houses along streets where rich history still clings like the Spanish moss in the overhanging trees, Jones recalled how the area has changed over time despite efforts to maintain its history. I hope we can develop some tours to show young people what used to exist, Jones said.Pleasant Street exhibit remembers areas rich history NICOLE GIAQUINTOAlligator Contributing WriterA team led by two UF researchers was recently awarded thousands of dollars to help win the game of hide-and-seek with leukemia cells. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society awarded the team a twospots leukemia cells tend to hide in the body and to develop drugs that cripple these cells. Research leaders Dr. Christopher Cogle and Edward Scott, both professors in UFs College of Medicine, applied for the grant during the summer in hopes of furthering their research in the behaviors of blood cancer. Cogle deals with these cells each day at UF Health Shands Hospital. ing spots of leukemia cells because thats a major problem in the clinic, he said. Cogle said another obstacle he faces in the clinic is that leukemia often returns after chemotherapy alone. The team is conducting research on blood vessels, which they grow in sterile dishes. They are also using mice as test subjects to further understand where the cancer cells hide and what types of drugs they can use to eradicate the cells. Were able to test these ideas very rapidly so that we can save young children and other adults from these cancers, Cogle said. Scott, a professor in molecular genetics and microbiology said he and Cogle want to make sure what they discover in the mice will succhange for human leukemia cases. Cogle and Scott will share their data with Celgene, the pharmaceutical company they partnered with, in the hopes of developing drug compounds that will block where cancer cells hide. The main goal is to understand a new biology of leukemia cells that has never been appreciated could be therapeutic in the future for my patients, Cogle said. Chris Abeleda, a 20-year-old UF psychology sophomore, was diagnosed with leukemia in spring 2013. His case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia is in remission, He said he thinks the research that Cogle and Scott are conducting is great and wants to know if there are still leukemia cells hiding in his body. make sure its all gone, Abeleda said, that would be perfect.Grant to fund UF leukemia research Christopher CogleThe grant was $800kLOCAL

She looked in the mirror. It had to be perfect to meet the standard for a female Marine. Now, Skye Barkley, a 25-year-old UF wildlife ecology and conservation student, tames her hair with a palm full of mousse and leaves it down. She has transitioned into the civilian world. To discuss the concerns of student veterans like Barkley, the UF Collegiate Veterans Society held a luncheon at Yon Hall with UF Board of Trustees members at noon Thursday. Among those in attendance were Lt. Col. Jason Rosenberg of the Air Force Reserve, and Vice President of Student Affairs and retired Army Gen. Dave Kratzer. The group discussed communication erans Affairs, recruiting veterans to the different sections of the required What is the Good Life? class for veterans. Rosenberg said he wants to especially help veterans because they often battle issues that other students dont have to deal with. Barkley found out she was pregnant after she was released from active duty while her husband was stationed elsewhere. I immediately went from being a female Marine enlisted to a civilian whose husband was still in (the service), and now, Im pregnant. she said, I have absolutely no skills to apply to the world to get a job. The UF community was welcoming, she said. She found a support system through the society that helped her transition into the civilian and college world.

A media blackout has prevented much coverage from reaching the mainstream, so one UF student with intimate ties to the upheaval abroad decided to do something about it. This week, were handing off a LAUREL to UF student Andreina Nash, who produced a video called Whats going on in Venezuela in a nutshell to educate people about whats happening in her native country. The video immediately went pacts to the tune of more than 2 million hits, in this case. In Miami, a back-and-forth struggle thats held up the release of a video police made of Justin Bieber shortly after his arrest is still in the process of getting settled. According to The Associated Press, a judge said Thursday that he will review the police tape and determine whether some portions should be withheld from the public because of as part of a drug test. The Bieber camp, obviously, doesnt want any part of the tapes to see the light of day. Outraged members of the media disagree, citing a right to public records that applies to even material involving celebrities. The right of privacy cannot trump the right of access to public records, said Deanna Shullman, an attorney for The Associated Press and several other media outlets. My clients have no interest in showing Mr. Biebers private parts. You have to redact that and release the rest. Thats right! The public has a right to life, liberty and a grainy video clip of JBiebz and the cops. This week, were throwing a release-the-tapes-now! DART at the Miami-Dade County judge who is delaying this important video from reaching the public. Judging by the amount of petition signers and reader mail, no one at UF is taking the removal of Jon Andersons Bambooville art installation lying down. And we dont blame them: Bambooville was accessible art, available for students to experience whenever they pleased. UF said its reasoning for forcing Anderson to dismantle Bambooville was because he didnt go through the appropriate channels to have his art approved though Anderson told the Alligator that he made efforts to seek approval and build Bambooville on greenhouse land. LAUREL to Jon Anderson and the students who are advocating for the return of Bambooville. Have a good weekend, Gators. Wear sunscreen!Manners matter: a common courtesy guideI always get pegged as nice. When I hold the door for a stranger: nice. When I tell someone his backpack is unzipped: nice. When I inform the barista at Starbucks someone left $20 unattended on the counter: nice. And sure, Ill take it. Not everyone does those things. But I dont chalk it all up to niceness. I think of it more as common courtesy. Although I like to think I am nice, more so than that, I am considerate, and more college students should be, too. It sounds easy enough, but judging by the number of disgusting on-campus bathrooms Ive opted out of using, the number of times Ive been woken at ungodly hours by loud neighbors, and the hardships Ive experienced trying to get my bike out of perfectly functioning bike racks, the reality is, a lot of really nice people are pretty inconsiderate.

When youre going about your day with an alloted time to do each of the things on your list, the last thing spot for your bike on a rack, it is not OK to lock onto said rack in a way that will make it a nightmare for others to get out. If youre riding your bike, you probably know how annoying it is not to be able to access it when you need it. So dont make it hard on others. If you park in an area other spot. There are plenty of places for bikes on campus. On top of someone elses isnt one of them. These all seem like common sense, but if they werent problems Id encountered more than once, I wouldnt be mentioning them. Sure, that time I told the barista about the unattended $20 bill was probably stupid. From the time I opened my mouth to the time my drink order was ready, I observed about seven people walk up to claim the $20. But what if it was the last $20 bill you could spend that week?

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7Swamps intimidation tactics are reprehensibleOn Wednesday, I exercised my right as a UF student to vote. I wore my I Voted sticker as I sat eating at a table in the Reitz Union when a girl walked up to me and asked if she could have my sticker. Suspiciously, I asked her why. She told me that her friend was in a fraternity and needed to collect ten voting stickers, or else hed be in semester of college, but I was asked by a desperate sorority girl instead. Let me tell you something, Swamp Party. Or should I say, Unite Party? I voted for every single Taco Libre candidate there were no Students Party members on my ballot that I could. I will never support the corruption and intimidation tactics that you use against your Greek members. Next time I vote, I am not giving my sticker to anyone. It is reprehensible that Greeks, who only represent about 20 percent of our Student Body, control our entire governing system. I urge all the minority parties and anyone not involved with these people to stand up to the corruption at our precious university. Know who you are voting for. Know what you are voting for. And for the love of God, dont support these intimidation tactics by giving up anything even as trivial as a sticker. Juliana Schmidt UF nursing sophomore Why Students Party boycottedOn Wednesday night, the results of the Spring 2014 Student Government election were announced, and the Students Party ofname is Olga Rodriguez, president of the Students Party, and I would like to explain why. Its no secret that Student Government is run by Swamp Party. As SG continues to put more restrictions on elections, it becomes footing. Students consistently ask Students Party campaigners, Why are there so few of you and so many Swamp campaigners? Unbeknownst to many students, there are restrictions on parties from meeting outside of what has been deemed the election period. This is just one example of restrictions keeping oppositions small. Students DO want to learn about SG as well as make sure their voices are heard. Students Party believes all parties should have the right to inform students on issues and what is going on in SG. time and consistency exactly what opposition parties are denied. Swamp Party wants you to think more than 90 seats in Senate is indicative of its success in a democratic election, but this is not a democracy. Democracy is based on checks and balances and without the check, there is no balance. We hope that having boycotted the election results presentation, students will see the injustice present within SG and they will join The Students Party in demanding these changes from our representatives. Olga Rodriguez Students Party president The future of BamboovilleBambooville, the oasis of relaxation, inspiration and nature appreciation located in the Bartram and Carr wilderness area, has been dismantled upon mandate from university administration. Nick Chrone, several interested students and I have been striving to work with the university to keep Bambooville intact. It was taken down because the founder, Jon Anderson, didnt go through standard university procedures one year ago to install his bamboo structures, tables, hammocks and ornaments. Our goal is to work with the Lakes, Vegetation and Landscaping as well as the Land Use and Facilities Planning committees by presenting a formal proposal to gain approval to restore Bambooville. It is ultimately up to the vice president for business operations, Curtis Reynolds, to make or break Bambooville. The comments written by supporters of the petitions exemplify the passion and wide range of students in favor of Bambooville. Although I started working at Bambooville because I found the area to be healing amid the daily grind, seeing the communitys response has made me realize this cause is beyond Jon Anderson and myself it belongs to the students, and I will continue to work as their representative. If anyone is interested in bringing Bamstore Bambooville to keep up to date as we formulate our proposal and move forward. Elliot Larkin UF graduate student and Andersons student helper Letters to the EditorThousands of years from now, historians and archeologists BuzzFeed. And its going to be really embarrassing. BuzzFeed is a self-described news and entertainment company and one of the more gaudy things on the Internet today. Its business model is to create viral, feel-good clickbait content, stuff that will be shared and reposted millions of times across social media platforms. It takes many forms: There are quizzes, which are great if youve ever wondered which sandwich best describes you. There are tons of life hacks, and sometimes, real news stories. But the ideal form of the BuzzFeed article is the listicle a literal with amusing gifs and images regularly stolen from Reddit. the 90s and they are the foundation of BuzzFeeds media empire. Aside from the many accusations of plagiarism, the style has been criticized as lazy. Even under criticism, BuzzFeed is immensely popular. Its one of the most shared sites on Facebook and is the premier place on the Internet to waste time. the whole thing makes a lot more sense. In the video on that page, the same phrase keeps popping up: content-driven social advertising. Slightly more prodding brings you closer to the truth. Years ago, BuzzFeed discovered how to manufacture viral content, and it has been using that knowledge to make you buy things. Its not news or entertainment; its a brilliant advertising machine. The formula they developed to create viral content is pretty simple. They gather information and pictures that are either really relatable or have a high potential for going viral, i.e. things that are funny, outlandish or make people feel good. They organize this information in the most readable form to create relatable and noncontroversial articles that get millions of views. The marketing aspect of this is that BuzzFeed is willing to sell a slice of the action to whoever wants the Internet to be full of 13 reasons why everyone should buy their product. Companies and other interests write their own listicles and, subtly or not, promote their products/goals through BuzzFeeds viral content generator. Its impossible to deny BuzzFeeds success. Its supposed to make $200 million this year impressive, for what amounts to a catalog of stolen cat pictures. In these days when revenues and readerships are falling, media outlets everywhere are turning to sponsored content for survival. But as sympathetic as I am to the media outlets using sponsored content to get by, theyre putting themselves in a precarious situation. BuzzFeeds revenue stream may be tempting, but the people Alec Carver is a UF journalism freshman. His columns appear on Fridays. BuzzFeed, sponsored content trendingColumn any students and faculty are outraged with UFs harsh decision to remove the popular campus landmark Bambooville. But the universitys behavior on this matter is far from shocking. I am writing as a member of what the Alligator once dubbed The Dragon Family. Like Jon Anderson, the creator and all-around cool guy behind Bambooville, my friends and I have also been stymied in creating public artworks on campus. Responsible for the large-scale Pokmon chalkings in various locations around campus, we had the singular goal of creating impermanent chalk art to liven up dull areas of campus. Our art was neither a statement nor a nuisance. Our only hope was to have fun making something beautiful and unexpected on campus. Despite our good intentions, UF has fought artists given warnings from the university and were told to go through the proper channels. The bottom line is that UF doesnt get it. Public art is a cultural phenomenon that is hardly new. In the past, Street Wall and the Norman Hall tunnel as safe spaces to make public art. But, artistic expression is not so easily contained. UF will fail to eradicate public art on campus. Just walk These impermanent artworks arent detracting from UFs image but rather are helping build a picture of the diverse Gator Nation. I am not condoning making the entirety of campus a risy and elitism at play when UF wont let a man keep his bamboo garden but pays a relatively unknown artist $22,000 to paint trees blue. What makes blue trees worthy of UFs approval and a harmless Pokmon chalking not? UF is a large campus with lots of room for artistic expansion. By creating simple ways to get a public work approved, UF could be a haven for healthy artistic expression. Let Anderson keep Bambooville, and let students perform great feats with permission. There is room for both blue trees and bamboo furniture. To UF students and faculty, I suggest seeing Bambooville before its gone. Its a hidden gem on campus. Sign the petitions at change.org search for Bambooville and let your voices be heard. Dont let it become Pompeii. Those guys had more colorful words to describe people who restrict free expression.

Coffee contains more useful antioxidants than any other food in a typical diet. If you drink it daily, youll lower your risk of getting Parkinsons, liver disease, skin cancer, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimers. while researching for this post was coffees ability, apparently, to make you happier. A 1999 study conducted in Sweden by Fredholm et al. looked at the structure of adenosine receptors. Fredholm et al. found that adenosine receptors were colocalized with dopamine receptors. Colocalization occurs when one type of receptor is located next to or nearby a second receptor. Colocalization can have a number of effects in some cases, activation of one receptor will boost activation of a colocalized receptor. According to Fredholm et al., activation of adenosine receptors does the opposite it depresses activation of dopamine receptors. This means that when adenosine receptors are suppressed, dopamine receptors will be more active. Dopamine, as the biology majors among us may know, is responsible primarily for regua yummy meal, our brain releases dopamine, making us feel caffeine will block your adenosine receptors, in turn freeing up your dopamine receptors. But short-term dopamine release isnt all. Coffee acts for longer periods of time than most other dopamine boosters like, say, food. Longer-term release of certain hormones, like serotonin, have been known to boost neuron growth. So, drink up! (And poop, because coffee does that too, apparently.)

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators try out for national teamFlorida volleyball players Simone Antwi, Mackenzie Dagostino, Alex Holston and Gabby Mallette are trying out for the USA Womens National Team. Coach Mary Wise will serve as an evaluator. Young honoredUF center Patric Young was named a Capital One Academic All-American on Thursday. Young has a 3.37 GPA, according to Floridas website.The UF womens tennis team takes a West Coast swing this weekend. Read the story online at alligatorSports.org. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynBilly Donovan did not waste any time letting the media know who played the better game Wednesday night. First, I thought Auburn outplayed us, the 18thyear coach said to open the postgame press conference. You know, saying it like it is. Despite the sluggish defensive performance for the majority of the game for the Gators, whose 10 allowed threes were the most since Arkansas sunk 10 in an overtime loss, No. 2 Florida stepped up in hands of defeat. But Donovan recognized the eight-point comebreak since UF was last ranked No. 2 on Feb. 5, 2013, couldnt have been achieved without a hand. We got some help from Auburn coming down the stretch, Donovan said. If it wasnt for an errant foul by the Tigers Asauhn Dixon-Tatum on Patric Young during a free-throw rebound, the Gators would have been forced to sink a last-second bucket or face overtime for the second time this season. Instead, Young hit both his free throws to put And when Auburn had a chance to either tie or win the contest, it threw the following inbound pass into UFs bench to essentially seal victory for the Gators. 8 of the last 10 free throws, luck doesnt hurt during a 30-game home winning streak. luckiest team in the nation and second luckiest in the Southeastern Conference behind Mississippi State. I think Auburn had a lot more bounce; they were a lot more lively; they played fearlessly ... They knew where the ball was going, what they were doing and they made plays when they needed to make plays, Donovan said. Despite the laundry list of things the Tigers did better than the Gators on Wednesday night, Florida is still the team up for the No. 1 spot in the country, not Auburn. And because his team earned the win, Donovan said he was going to celebrate it. He said he and his guys are happy for every victory, no matter how ugly it could have been. However, he added that is not going to let him stop pursuing perfection because the last minute of the game isnt always going to work out the way the Gators like. They are in uncharted territory, Donovan said better job in terms of mentally getting them to play close to their potential. Hill doubtful: After sitting out Wednesdays win over Auburn with a groin injury from the Kentucky contest, Kasey Hill is doubtful for Saturdays matchup with Ole Miss on the road. Hill is not progressing as fast as we thought he would, Donovan said. The freshman point guard suffered a sprained not a pulled groin Saturday in Lexington, Ky., Donovan added. Without Hills 23.3 minutes per game in the backcourt, the Gators were forced to play DeVon Walker 14 minutes Wednesday night, which was the most for the sophomore guard since playing 22 minutes on Jan. 14 against Georgia when Casey Prather was out with a right knee bruise. Michael Frazier II temporarily left the game with a ing six minutes against Texas A&M on Feb. 1. With both Prather (ankle) and Young (knees) not at 100 percent either, both Walker and Kurtz could see more playing time in Oxford, Miss.Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffPatric Young drives the ball during Floridas 71-66 win against Auburn on Wednesday in the OConnell Center. Young scored 17 points in the win.

The team scored three conthe second half, threatening to overtake the Gators; Florida countered after JMU scored its three points, but the Gators managed to lose the draw-control battle But the Dukes 3-0 run didnt change the outcome of the game. In addition to JMUs attempt to create momentum at the start of the second half, half. The physicality caused James Madisons Stephanie Finley to leave the game early after being hit in the face by a Florida players net. She later returned to the game sporting a bandaged forehead. Later, JMUs Carter Reifsnider was given a yellow card after she knocked down junior Shannon Gilroy from behind with her net. She sat out until Florida scored 30 seconds later. Juniors Gilroy and Nora Barry and sophomore Sam Darcangelo helped lead the Gators in their feat against the Dukes by beating JMU on draw controls, shots and clears. Schneider also aided in winning the draw controls Thursday. With the advantage of height on Schneiders side she picked two of her draw controls from the air. Schneider also put three points on the board and was one of seven scorers for the Gators. Its really important for me to come out here and play my hardest every time, Schneider said about her job on draw controls. Everyday at practice, we go hard.

Dizney Stadium. Barry notches eight draw controlscontrols and two points. Barry contributed the record-breaking night to her team; however, coach Amanda OLeary said that eight draw controls are natural for Barry. This is the Nora we know, OLeary said. We see this everyday at practice, so it doesnt come as a surprise to us watching this performance because this is what she does every day. better with each game of the season. She started out the season at No. 1 North Carolina with no points. Since UNC, she has almost doubled her draw controls and points with each game. We knew from scouting JMU at the ball that their draw person could really control it, Barry Said. We knew where it was going. Freshman Sammi Burgess also had a solid night, putting up two points and two assists. Burgess is the most consistent player of all the freshmen on the team and has a combined total of nine points for the season and six assists. Burgess said Tuesday that the Dukes defense would be the most challenging, aside from UNC, that the Gators had faced yet. Having played with some of the players that are on JMUs defense, she said it would be tough. I think that we prepare so well the days before the game that were ready, Burgess said. We know what were going to be dealing with and I think it really helps because we get out there and were composed. LACROSSE, from page 13SOFTBALL JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126Coach Tim Walton likes what he has seen from his team so far this season. Theres a lot of bright spots, a lot of good things, Walton said. But I think the most important thing for me is weve been really consistent with our work ethic, consistent with our approach. Weve come out to play every single game. Of Floridas 10 players who have started at least eight of UFs ting average of at least .333 and six have recorded double-digit RBI Gators outscored their opponents 105-19. Walton hopes that consistency continues when the No. 1 Gators host the three-day Lipton Invitational. No. 1 Florida (12-0) opens up its six-game slate with a doubleheader tonight, playing Troy (4-5-1) at 4 p.m. followed by a contest against Indiana (1-9) at 6:15 p.m. With the team playing three consecutive doubleheaders, Walton plans on using the tournament at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium to experiment with some position players and give some of his roster more playing time. One of the things were going to try to do a good job of is getting Taylore Fuller a little more reps behind the plate, Walton said. Its something that Ive talked to Aubree Munro about. You know, its a long season. Aubree has caught a bunch of our games for us so far. Walton also aims to give additional playing time to junior Briana Little and freshman Chelsea Herndon this weekend. In their combined 10 at-bats this season, Little and Herndon accuaverage. Although the sample size is small, Walton is impressed with what he has seen from them. Briana Little and Chelsea Herndon have had good pinch-hits for us all season long and they need to get some starts now, he said. So Im hoping to get them a couple starts and just keep plugging on the same things that were doing. In the pitchers circle, Walton will be rotating his usual trio of starters: senior Hannah Rogers, junior Lauren Haeger and freshman Delanie Gourley. All three have four wins under their belts this season, and the starting rotation has combined for 75 strikeouts against only 17 walks. Thats not easy when youre putting together a team to have three quality pitchers like that and keep them happy, Walton said. Im really happy with the way all three of them are pitching.Gators moving players around during six-game tournament I think that we prepare so well the days before the game that were ready.Sammi BurgessUF attackerWalton
