STAFF REPORTeditor@alligator.orgThe Web turns 25 today, and though most UF students dont remember a time when the Internet wasnt around, the university and higher education has changed drastically due to its invention. The Internet spun out of labs at universities such as Dartmouth and Berkley where students had to share computers. The development of satellite technology during the 1960s space race also contributed to its groundwork. Andy McCollough, associate provost of teaching and technology at UF, said the addition of the Internet has opened up the educational process. For example, students have information more readily accessible, and a geographic tie between a class and a student is no longer necessary. What this technology has done has provided additional opportunities to integrate technology into the classroom, he said. As a consequence, it has opened up the teacher-student interchange to opportunities that were previously not available. ruary 1995, joining only 300 other universities, according to Alligator archives.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 Amanda Kastrinos / AlligatorCollections manager Gifford Waters displays a Spanish olive jar reconstructed from artifacts found at the St. Augustine site. AMANDA KASTRINOSAlligator Contributing WriterAn artifacts collection valued at $3.5 million to the Florida Museum of Natural History may bring new historical Spanish colony. UF archaeologists have decades of history digging at St. founded by explorer Pedro Menendez in 1565. A donation by the lands owners, the Fraser family, will allow the study of 97,000 artifacts found over the years. Artifacts will eventually join the permanent collection at the museum. Gifford Waters, a collections manager for historical archaeology at the museum, said these artifacts, along with remnants of structures found at the site, can provide new understanding into how the settlers lived. We can look into how the Spaniards adapted to this new land and what they did to be ultimately a successful colony when all these other attempts had failed, he said. Thanks to years of careful protection by the Fraser family, the site has remained relatively uncompromised for centuries. Douglas Jones, director of the Florida Museum, said this is extremely rare for archaeological sites along the coast. You dont have to travel around Florida very much to know most of the coastline and coastal properties have been developed or altered, Jones said. Were very lucky that this site has been preserved in as great a detail as it has. Jones said the Fraser family realized they would rather have the artifacts available to the public than kept in a private collection. Its a great win-win situation, he said. Knowledge increases, and the artifacts are cared for at the same time. A portion of the artifacts are already on display in St. Augustine as part of the First Colony: Our Spanish Origins exhibit. It will stay in St. Augustine through the end of 2015 and then will be on display at UF. Waters said having the exhibit on campus will not only promote the history of Florida but also act as a valuable tool for training future archaeologists and historians. Most people, he said, are taught that America began with British settlements like Jamestown and Plymouth Rock. Really, it began long before that with the founding of St. Augustine, he said. We want to get the true history of Florida and our nation out to the general public as much as possible.Museum gets multi-milliondollar donation of artifacts97,000 to be studied


supporters at Tall Pauls Brew House, Warren, 60, said she needs to do more groundwork if she wants to win. It was just so close, she said. We need to take this from a runoff to a winning campaign. Warren ended her speech by asking Her supporters yelled back No! in unison. However, Orlando, 59, said shes in the runoff. She said she believes Warren isnt familiar with the problems City Commission faces. Warren hasnt attended many commission meetings, Orlando said, and it was obvious she was unfamiliar with the issues during candidate forums. The runoff election may make it easier for voters to differentiate between platforms because they only have to choose between two candidates on the ballot, she said. Now its just me against her, she said at her post-election reception at the Warehouse in downtown Gainesville. People can compare better. While Warren and Orlando are preparing to kickstart their campaigns again, Chase is ready to settle into his second term. ness is to address Gainesvilles transportation needs, including routes that primarily service UF and Santa Fe students.

At about 8 p.m., Bottcher, 56, called to congratulate Carter. She hugged her son and told him, I guess Ill be spending more time at home. Later on in the night, she joined Warren and District 2 runner-up Sheryl Eddie at Tall Pauls. As supporters sipped on drinks, Warren headed up to the stage of the dimly lit bar to thank volunteers and voice doubts about the future of the commission. I feel that I kind of let everybody down, Bottcher told the crowd. But I feel worse for the City of Gainesville. 4, ALLIGATOR Emily Cochrane / Alligator StaffCity Commissioner Susan Bottcher calls to congratulate District 3 winner Craig Carter.

CAMPUS RYAN BAUMAlligator Contributing WriterThe Gator Cricket Club will compete as one of more than 24 college teams today in the American College Cricket national championship. The competition, held at Park and Stadium in Lauderhill through Sunday, follows a UF loss to University of South Florida at the 2013 SEC championship. The USF game was very tough and very close; it went to last ball, said Sarang Kulkarni, a 22-year-old UF material sciences and engineering masters student. 2013 Southeastern Conference title game with back-to-back SEC championships, but a majority of the team members graduated during the time in between, said team captain Aditya Kasinadhuni, 26. They did not play like a new team (against USF), he said. No matter what is ahead of us at nationals, we will face it together. Lloyd Jodah, founder and president of American College Cricket, said cricket is gaining a following in the U.S. championship, and this year the game will be broadcast on ESPN3, Jodah said. Were proud for cricket in this country. Kasinadhuni, a UF third-year biomedical engineering Ph.D. candidate, said he started playing cricket as a young boy in Hyderabad, India. He came to the U.S. in 2009 and joined the Gator Cricket Club in 2011, stepping up as captain this semester. In India, cricket is more of a religion than it is a sport, he said. Kulkarni, who serves as the treasurer, said the clubs fundraising efforts have played a large role in the team dynamic, which graduate and Ph.D. students. To raise money, team members worked concessions for home football games and held a tennis nancial support from local business India Bazaar. Kulkarni said part of the $2,000 raised will go toward a new portable cricket pitch for the team to practice on. even grass that causes the ball to bounce inconsistently, making it harder for the batters to predict its path.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI A May 5 trial date was set Tuesday for Justin Bieber in the Florida case charging him and possessing an invalid drivers license. Prosecutor Daniel Diaz-Balart also said at a brief hearing that no plea offer has been made for the 20year-old pop singer, who has pleaded not guilty. Biebers attorney, Roy Black, said there was no plea deal on the table and none had been rejected, even fered a plea to avoid potential jail time. All were going to say is, were going to prepare for a trial and that Mr. Bieber has pleaded not guilty, Black told reporters. The initial March trial date was postponed while attorneys for news organizations and Bieber wrestled with the release of police videos of him giving a urine sample for a drug test. Those videos were made public last week with sensitive segments blacked out. Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race with high-end sports cars. Breath tests showed Biebers blood-alcohol content was below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers. Other tests detected marijuana and Xanax. Sharieff has a separate April 7 trial date on a DUI charge. He, too, has pleaded not guilty. Black was also asked about a deposition Bieber who claims he was roughed up and threatened by one of the singers bodyguards. Video of that deposition quickly began appearing on Internet sites, which Black criticized Tuesday as an invasion of Biebers privacy. Among other things, Black said, Bieber was asked in the deposition about topics such as his relationships with singers Selena Gomez and Usher that had nothing to do with the case. A judge previously denied motions to keep Biebers deposition sealed, he added. He has absolutely no privacy, Black said. Theres absolutely no protection for somebody like Justin.Bieber gets May 5 trial date in Florida case STATE JONATHAN ARNHOLZAlligator Contributing WriterA local restaurant has changed its name, but the menu, service and staff have remained mostly intact. Gainesville establishment KC Crave transformed into The Mix Bistro, debuting under the new title Feb. 26 in the same Second Avenue location. The name change comes after local owners Tiff Murphy and Tom Mowry bought out other ownership partners for the KC Crave Gainesville location, said assistant general manager Mystry Faith. The partners at the other location in Jacksonville Beach still own their shares. Faith said the owners wanted a fresh start after taking control of the restaurant. They wanted to envision what we do here, which is a mix, she said. We do live music, we have a bourbon bar, were revamping our wine list We needed a fun, energetic name to go along with that. Faith said the core menu is not changing. However, the restaurant will put more emphasis on its seasonal specials. It will also focus on using produce and meats grown by local farmers. Rosellen Hatch, 58, said she and her husband attended the grand opening. They routinely drive from their home in Keystone Heights to visit the restaurant, especially when it hosts Gator Hotline, a radio call-in show featuring head coaches of Florida Gators athletic teams. Faith said shows like Gator Hotline have become a factor in the identity that the restaurant has tried to establish something that wont change with the name change. We want people to be entertained when theyre here, she said, and thats a form of entertainment.Restaurant mixes it up with name change BRADLEY NORMANAlligator Contributing WriterOrange Countys animal shelter has decided to no longer categorize and formally identify dogs by breed, and a local group sees value in adopting the same approach in Gainesville. However, Alachua County Animal Services plans to continue sharing information about the breeds. Orange County, which includes Orlando, made the move to combat stigmatization and low adoption rates among pit bull mixes. Vernon Sawyer, the Alachua County Animal Services director, said the local shelter adopts out a lot of pit bulls and pit bull mixes. Pit bulls get a bad rep, Sawyer said. Theyre absolutely a very good dog. I own pits myself. Sawyer said Orange Countys idea may be worth looking into. best-guess basis, he said. Itd be interesting to see their stats down the road to see if it increases their adoptions and how it works, Sawyer said. Anna Peterson, a volunteer with local organization Plenty of Pit Bulls, said Orange County made a great decision. Appearance in mixed breeds is a really poor guide to breed, Peterson said. Its also a really poor guide to determining temperament. Peterson said she hasnt noticed much fear or distrust toward the breeds in the area, despite stigmatization. Its kind of like with black people or gay people or any other category thats stigmatized, Peterson said. Once you get to know some, you realize theyre not that different. Amie Kreppel, a UF political science associate professor, has fostered seven dogs for Plenty of Pit Bulls. She said the stigma surrounding pitbull breeds is the result of ignorance. When people meet the dog shes currently fostering, Jade, a 72-pound pit lab mix, they cant believe shes a pit bull, Kreppel said. Because there is a stereotype of the big massive dog that is going to chew your face off or whatever, people just make assumptions, she said. Kreppel said dogs in shelters should be categorized by things more important than breed, such as size or activity level.Local shelters will keep identifying adoptable dogs by breed KC Crave is now The Mix They wanted to envision what we do here, which is a mix.

KATHERINE ARELLANOAlligator Contributing WriterWine gets better with age, but adults alcohol tolerance doesnt. A recent UF study tested the effects of alcohol on adults driving skills and compared how participants in two age ranges, 25 to 35 and 55 to 70, performed. It was conducted by Sara Jo Nixon, a UF professor in the departments of psychiatry and psychology, along with graduate research assistant Alfredo Sklar. The study tested adults of similar height and weight who had consumed the same amount of alcohol with the only difference being participants ages. The research began by performing a baseline assessment in which the participants did not consume any alcohol. Across all the measures, we saw that the older adults were impaired to younger adults, and that again is before they had any alcohol, said Sklar, 29. Next the participants were given low to moderate doses of alcohol, and results showed that the older adults were more The lower doses that pushed older adults blood alcohol level to 0.065 produced effects in their driving. That dose seemed to exhibit jerkier steering and more variability in their speed, he said. He said theres no difference in how younger and older adults metabolize alcohol because both groups were given the same amount. Younger and older adults were at the same intoxication blood alcohol level, and we still see these differences on top of that, he said. Sklar said his research team wants to raise awareness with this study and draw attention to the fact that there still might be some risks to having one or two drinks. the 0.08 level, do have real implications for driving safety, Sklar said. He said many studies have touted the from consuming a glass of wine a day, but not much is said about the acute risks. A lot of times when people look at the risks of drinking alcohol, theyre looking at much higher dose levels, Sklar said. Besides just car accidents, you have unintentional injuries that occur at higher rates at lower levels of alcohol consumption. Robert Webber, a 49-year-old UF alumnus, is a marketing manager for a beer distributing company in Ocala. He said he frequently takes new product samples home with him, so his home is usually stocked with beer. I work with it every day, and I still feel a buzz after a couple, Webber said. Judith Nogues, a 42-year-old Micanopy resident, said shes in touch with her limits after consuming alcohol. I like to drink wine every now and then at home, but I never drive afterward, she said. I know how I get after one glass.Matthew Martyr / Alligator StaffPatrons gather at Mothers Pub and Grill on Tuesday evening.

JESSICA PEREDAAlligator Contributing Writer Dmytrochenko does when she wakes up every morning is pick up her iPad to read the news about Ukraine. I check it to make sure the countrys not fully invaded, she said, adding shes worried about what could happen to her brother, mother and grandmother who all live in various parts of Ukraine. For the past three months, Ukrainians have protested the governments decision to not become associated with the European Union, which would allow for open trade. Protests turned into riots. The area wasnt always like this, said 31-year-old Dmytrochenko, who moved from Ukraine to the U.S. more than four years ago to earn her Ph.D. at UF in international communication and immigration. She said that when she left Ukraine, it was mostly democratic without serious problems. Recently, President Vladimir Putin declared the new Ukrainian government illegitimate to justify his involvement in the region. Unmarked troops have occupied Crimea, the southern part of Ukraine next to Russia, according to news reports. These troops are rumored to be Russian because Crimea, bordered by the Black are stationed, has valuable sea access. Russia denies the troops are its own. UF political science professor George Esenwein said Russia is trying to establish its power. There are some technical rights that Russia is using where they can bring in an X number of troops, which clearly they are abusing, he said. The U.S. has tried to diffuse the situation by threatening tough economic sanctions and sending diplomats to resolve the problem. But Paul DAnieri, dean of UFs College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and a professor specializing in the region, said theres just not enough between the U.S. and Russia to make anything happen. As for Dmytrochenko, she said she doesnt know what the future holds for Ukraine if Crimea becomes part of Russia. Ive spoken to my family there, and they all want to live in Ukraine, she said. They dont understand why Putin is coming to save them. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia The missing Boeing 777 jetliner changed course over the sea, crossed Malaysia and reached the Strait of Malacca hundreds of miles from its last position recorded by civilian authorities, Malaysian ing military radar data. The development added confusion and mystery into one of most puzzling aviation incidents of recent, and it has raised questions about why the Malaysia Airlines detectable by civilian radar, why its crew was silent about the course change and why no distress calls were sent after it turned back. Many experts have been working on the assumption there was a such as an explosion, engine failure, terrorist attack, extreme turbulence, pilot error or even suicide. The director of the CIA said in Washington that he still would not rule out terrorism. Flight MH370, carrying 239 people, took off from Kuala Lumpur at 12:41 a.m. Saturday, bound for Beijing. Authorities initially said its last contact with ground controllers at a height of 35,000 feet, when the plane was somewhere between the east coast of Malaysia and Vietnam. But local newspaper Berita Harian quoted Malaysias air force chief, Gen. Rodzali Daud, as saying that radar at a military base had tracked the jet as it changed its course, with the plane to be near Pulau Perak at the northern approach to the Strait of Malacca, a busy waterway that separates the western coast of Malaysia and Indonesias Sumatra isaround 29,528 feet, he said. After that, the signal from the plane was lost, he was quoted as saying. Authorities had said earlier the plane may have tried to turn back to Kuala Lumpur, but they expressed surprise it would do so without informing ground control. The search was initially focused hundreds of miles to the east, in waters off Vietnam, with more than 40 planes and ships from at least 10 nations searching the area without craft. Earlier Tuesday, Malaysia Airlines said in a statement that searchand-rescue teams had expanded their scope to the Strait of Malacca. An earlier statement said the western coast of Malaysia was now the focus, but the airline subsequently said that phrase was an oversight. It didnt elaborate. Civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said the search remained on both sides of Malaysia. Attention will now likely focus on the condition of the Boeing 777s electronic systems as it charted its new course back toward and then across Malaysia. Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar, who has been ordered to look at possible criminal aspects in the disappearance of Flight MH370, said hijacking, sabotage and issues related to the pilots psychological health were all being considered. Also Tuesday, Malaysian and international police authorities said two people who boarded Flight MH370 with stolen passports were Iranians who had bought tickets to Europe, where they were planning to migrate. Their presence on the possible terrorist link. Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said investigators had determined one was a 19-year-old Iranian, Pouria Nourmohammadi Mehrdad. We believe he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group, Khalid said. man as Seyed Mohammed Reza Delavar, a 29-year-old Iranian, and released an image of the two boarding at the same time. Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said the two men traveled to Malaysia on their Iranian passports, then apparently switched to their stolen Austrian and Italian documents. CIA Director John Brennan said in Washington that Malaysian authorities are looking very carefully at what went wrong. He also said there has been a lot of speculation right now some claims of responsibility that have corroborated at all. We are looking at it very carefully.RESEARCHIt disappeared Saturday After that, the signal from the plane was lost.Rodzali DaudMalaysias air force chief

Im usually in the right place so I dont have to be a shot blocker, Young said. Im not an Anthony Davis-type guy or a Nerlens Noel. Its just nice to be recognized for doing the right things by all the coaches on the committee and the people that voted me to win this award. Finney-Smith, who started 30 games as a freshman for Virginia Tech during the 2011-2012 season, started only two games this year under Donovan.

Now, while spring practice gives them the opportunity to pick up the pieces, they arent forgetting the embarrassment. I dont know that you can put the season behind you at all, Muschamp said. You need to have a good memory for about those sorts of things, but our guys are hungry. Our guys are working hard. At the end of the day you shut up and have a good memory. Thats kind of been our motto around here. Green getting healthier: Along with Max Garcia, redshirt senior Chaz Green is expected to anchor an offensive line that must improve from a year in which its position coach was let go, its opponents sacked the quarterback 27 times and its running backs averaged 3.6 yards per carry. Green, who started 10 games in 2012, missed last season due to a torn labrum he suffered in fall camp. Hes always been a hard worker, but Muschamp has seen Green up the ante. times you realize how important it is to you, Muschamp said.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15 UF HAS CUSE ALUM ON STAFF. EDEN OTEROAlligator Writer@edenotero_lNo. 4 Florida is moving on up. After a string of home wins and two big wins on the road, the Gators (7-1, 1-0 American Lacrosse Conference) have climbed back to where it started in the preseason poll before its season-opening loss against No. 1 North Carolina. But with a game against Winthrop (2-3) tonight and an even bigger matchup against No. 3 Syracuse (6-1) on Saturday, Florida lacrosse Coach Amanda OLeary is looking to assistant coach Michelle Tumolo, a Syracuse alum, to lead Florida through the weeks matchups. Syracuse is a huge challenge for us, OLeary said. They are an exceptional lacrosse team. They are [No. 3] in the country and its a well-deserved [No. 3]. They have a fast-paced offense. Their defense is an older, more mature group. Hopefully, Michelle will help us in preparation. With Floridas solid defense and speedy offense, the team should cruise past unranked Winthrop, which has faltered in more games than it has won this season. Though the defense has played tough in its last three games, senior defender Krista Grabher said that even with the defenses massive games, it still needs a lot of work. The defense has a lot to work on, Grabher said. We prepare So a lot of focus, the attack is always Freshmen defenders Caroline Fitzgerald and Taylor Bresnahan Gilroy have been big facilitators in leading Florida through most of its blowout wins and Floridas nailbiting, 14-13 victory over No. 12 Loyola. [Bresnahan and Fitzgerald] have come in and been able to work with what we have going on and easily put themselves in the defense, Grabher said. Fitzgerald has been credited by teammates like Grabher and sophomore Sam Darcangelo for her strong defensive abilities. The freshman has caused seven turnovers this season and contributed 12 ground balls and two draw controls. Darcangelo said starting freshmen like Fitzgerald and Bresnahan dont have room for errors. They have to be good, Darcangelo said. We lost a lot of seniors, and they have to make up for that especially the starters. Bresnahan has one goal on two controls and three caused turnovers for the season. These two freshmen, with the leadership of Grabher, have helped put together a whole new defense after losing most of its starters to graduation in 2013. OLeary has started Fitzgerald in every game this season and recognizes what a threat she can be to attackers. Im really pleased shes a freshman and were going have some more years with her, OLeary said. She came to us well-seasoned. With each game, we give her more and more responsibility, and shes lining up against teams best attackers. I dont know if there is anymore recognition for her to earn than being put up against teams top-10.No. 4 Florida gearing for matchup against No. 3 SyracuseWOMENS GOLF EMILY COCHRANEAlligator Writer@EmilySCochraneFollowing its best performance of the season two weeks ago at the 2014 Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship, No. 17 Florida looks to continue its success at its only home tournament of the season.

Theres always a little more pressure playing at home especially for us, since we only do it once a year. The girls have to understand that its just golf.

Finishing third in New Orleans was big for us, Glaser said. We played the last day with the No. 1 and 2 teams in the country, and I was really proud of the way the girls responded.
