The norovirus spread through 22 members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, which led them to contact the Centers for Disease Control to investigate the incident. Paul Myers, administrator for the Alachua County Health Department, said the outbreak is contained at the moment. Symptoms included vomiting, nausea and diarrhea. The health department obtained samples said, but no further action was deemed necessary. This is not a stomach bug that is an issue, Myers said. Diane Webb, a nurse at the Student Health Care Center and a specialist in infectious diseases, said the incident likely occurred after a shared meal at the fraternity house, which is why the health department had to be involved. The Alachua County Health Department is responsible for inspecting any facility on campus that prepares, handles and serves food, she wrote in an email. However, because the incident occurred so soon after Spring Break, it could have also been a gastrointestinal illness brought back from vacation, she said. Incidents like this do not happen often and are unpredictable, she said. This should not impact anyone else on campus unless they have close contact with someone who is sick, she said. Our goal is to keep our students healthy. Members of Beta Theta Pi didnt respond to requests for comment.Virus spreads through UF Beta Theta Pi fraternity chapterAlex Harris / Alligator StaffEx-employees and Gainesville residents protested outside Citizens Co-op, seen here in a Home remedies can be effective, riskyExposure to an allergen in small doses to build immunity is referred to as immunotherapy. Allergy immunotherapy is often effective in reducing allergy symptoms, Rider said. However, it may take months for a noticeable improvement. Chapman said pollen is most abundant now, as levels rise from January to about June. Spring, commonly known as allergy season, causes some people to try unconventional methods such as the honey remedy to stop their reactions to rampant pollen. Chapman said he has heard of people being even more direct with their pollen consumption. Some people buy straight pollen from pollen producers, he added. They sprinkle a little on their cereal. However, he said this habit is a little scary because there are so many other possible allergens in the pollen. If allergies are severe, eating a lot of it could be like playing Russian roulette, he said. Honey could even turn out to be dangerous. He brought up an example of one woman who bought honey to help a pollen allergy. She had an allergic reaction to the orange traces in the honey, which caused further medical problems. Yaissy Solis, a 22-year-old UF journalism senior, said she was surrounded by allergy problems in her family, and they had their own home remedies. Im Cuban, so in my family... you drink a mixture of honey and lime juice, she said. It works for me, so I wouldnt be surprised if honey would (help allergies).

Bank of America and the Military Warriors Support Foundation awarded Rodriguez, 32, the Northwest Gainesville home mortgagefree. Rodriguezs wife, Brittany, said shes excited to move in with her husband and two daughters. We really never expected to be recipients of such a great gift, and it just has been an honor, the 25-year-old said. Rodriguez served seven years in the U.S. Army as a sergeant and did two combat 2007 and received the Purple Heart award, among others. Military Warriors National Home mentoring coordinator Sally Farrell said the organization provides ing for three years and then hands over the deed as long as the family maintains the residence and pays taxes on the house. At that point, she said, theyre established in the neighborhood and ready to go. Bank of America in North Central Florida senior vice president Jon M. Gardner presented the Rodriguez familys house key and commemorated their dedication to the country.

One was Kelsey Naylor, who worked at the co-op for about eight months and She said the board informed the time for any reason during a member meeting in February. Naylor said employees began to feel their jobs were at risk when two longterm workers were laid off for various reasons after the meeting, and the rest were told that the co-op was not a democracy by board of directors chair Lucian Kragiel. We didnt want to say anything. Adding to the employees worries about the stores management was the lack of worker representation on the board. A representative usually sits on the board, but the past two months have seen two of those representatives dismissed with no word of a replacement. However, the boards email said the two laid-off employees were offered other opportunities after their original positions were cut due to restructuring.

In her speech, Cox spoke about her childhood in Mobile, Ala. She said she dreamt about being a dancer, but her mother would not let her because it was too gay. Her experiences as a transgender woman led her to offer the audience advice calling a trans woman a man is an act of violence, she said. She also discussed gender policing and being bullied for being the typical male gender expression. However, Cox said that everyone is policed for his or her gender, not just LGBT individuals. What would it be like if each and every one of us decided were not going to be the gender police today? Cox said. And were going to allow people to be who they are and express themselves however they want to, and were not going to judge them. Cox ended her speech by encouraging audience members to have conversations with love to overissues and understand people better. I think that can be a journey for each and every one of us, she said, that all the preconceptions we might have about people who are different can melt away, and we can just get to know people as people.

Todays question: Do you have spring allergies?One would think with the recent press coverage that a lot of progress is being made in Hollywood: Ellen DeGeneres served pizza at the Academy Awards, and Jennifer Lawrence got a pixie cut. It all looks pretty good from where I sit. But in all seriousness, the latest Academy Awards was celebrated for its major milestones for people of color. Lupita Nyongo became the sixth black actress to win Best Supporting Actress, Steve McQueen became and Sciences. Also, Saturday Night Live recognized in January that while white women can be funny, black member in six years, Sasheer Zamata. However, not everything is colorful in Hollywood. With the recent news that the white Rooney Mara has been cast to play the Native American role of Tiger Lily that there is trouble in Neverland. The decision to cast a non-Native American actress in a Native American role has sparked controversy, Twitter debates and an online petition asking Warner Bros. to stop casting white actors to play people of color that has received about 8,100 signatures as of press time. However, some may view this backlash as all talk. U.S. News referred to it as an obligatory Twitter freakout. And Warner Bros. may be of the same opinion that they can ride out this predicted and routine outrage. The fact is, Warner Bros. will not risk supporting a no-name Native American actress when it can draw in audiences with a well-known face like Maras. When Warner Bros. can make $30 million in ticket sales on a movie, a petition signed by 8,000 people seems pretty makes theaters, the coverage of this topic is still important for the long-term reorganization of Hollywood. According to the 2010 U.S. census, Native Americans make up about 2 percent of the population, but according to a Screen Actors Guild report, Native American actors in 2008. Also, according to a University of Southern California study, only 10.8 perfrom 2007 to 2012 were black, 4.2 percent were Hispanic, and 5 percent were Asian. This leaves about three-quarters of all speaking characters to white actors and actresses. So relatively, whites in Hollywood are more prevalent than water on Earth. given to another white actor, it is disheartening. Furthermore, we should stop pigeonholing Native Americans into primarily Western roles or stories that only exist in the past. No wonder there is not a huge pool of Native American actors to choose from. Why more Native American actors, we need to promote their presence in modern-day roles. Im not upset about the casting of Tiger Lily to a lily-white actress because it doesnt maintain the traditional canon. Rather, I think we need to upset canons more often to present a more realistic representation of the population. Lauren Adamson is a UF journalism junior.

Supporters of the measure are proposing stringent regulations on potential distributors to dispel naysayers fears. The plan to adapt a better medical marijuana policy in Florida isnt baseless; after all, we have California and Colorado the wild west of weed, according to the Tampa Tribune as models of systems that have failed. The rules and practices of the California weed industry have been evolving since 1996, the TriHowever, supporters of medical marijuana in Florida know they wont gain momentum if they propose implementing the same loose system in Florida. Furthermore, the amendment bune that Floridas November ballot would include a pretty strict set of rules when it comes to the production and sale of medical marijuana in the state. Strict regulation proposals need to be on the table long before the amendment goes on the ballot, and organizations like United for Care recognize this. About 36 percent of Floridas registered voters identify as Republicans, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Democrats are still slightly in the lead, comprising 40 percent of Florida voters. Still, 36 percent is nothing to sniff at, especially since advocates for medical marijuana need to win over the conservative pockets of the state come election season. Unlike those implemented in California and Colorado, Floridas medical marijuana policy would be regulated from the getgo. This, advocates argue, is the crucial difference. Out west, the and those in authority know that its much easier to loosen political grip than it is to tighten. In addition, according to the Tribune, the amendment states that the Florida Department of Health would have 60 days from the bills effective date Jan. 6, 2015 to form policies governing the issuing of medical marijuana ID cards to caregivers, the registration of treatment centers to dispense marijuana (including standards of security, record-keeping, inspection, labeling and testing) and the limits on how much marijuana a patient may obtain. The current political and economic climate seems favorable to the passage of a medical marijuana bill in Florida. The Tririous inquiry about opening a marijuana-growing operation; a trade magazine is offering a seminar this weekend for everyone who plans to participate in Floridas future legal cannabis industry to meet the experts on legal and medical aspects of legalized marijuana; and Medical Marijuana Tampa has mobilized quickly to educate citizens about the positive impact the bill could have. The signs, then, are clear: Its high time pun intended that Florida adopt progressive, well-structured medical marijuana policies.

TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7I wasnt sure how to reply to a question that sat in my inbox. It came from a high school senior who wrote about how scared she is by the descriptions of UFs rape culture. She ended on a personal note: As an incoming female freshman, would she also have a one-in-four chance of being sexually assaulted? As a male columnist, after going through hundreds of pages of documents reports of criminal incidents, descriptions of internalized patriarchy in Greek life, sexual assault statistics you start to feel desensitized. And then you painfully remember the obvious: For women, sexism is not some abstract issue. Being degraded on a daily basis is the reality of many women on our campus. almost entirely led by women. There are countless women, nameless and faceless in the pages of history, who challenged the male supremacy of their eras. Even today, there are women, from the distant dunes of Saudi Arabia to the houses on Sorority Row so close to us, who are speaking out. They are marginalized, but who can deny their impact? It is because of these women not some mysterious group of chivalrous men that I am able to write on sexism. By pushing sexism into mainstream discourse, these women allow folks like me to do our timid part. We are indebted to those women who valiantly persevere on, despite being called sassy-mouthed feminazis. The question remains: Whats the ism? For me, it appears simple. It parallels the role whites had in the comes responsibility. Male privilege provides no exception to this moral principle. We all have a part to play in ensuring that UF is not conducive to sexism. At the present, we have a rape culture, so were quite far from that goal. But lets not sell ourselves short either. The Fine Print reported that UF had one of the most cutting-edge and innovative rape awareness programs in the 1980s. Our crown jewel was a group called Campus Organized Against Rape. In the landmark book about sexual assault on college campuses, I Never Called It Rape, the organization was recognized as one of the nations most comprehensive programs, according to the Fine Print. Being comprehensive, COAR dug deep and went for the roots of the rape culture. With half of its members being male, COAR focused on how both males and females are socialized about their sex roles, i.e. men are expected to be sexually aggressive while submissiveness is the standard for women. Its founder told the Gainesville Sun in 1986, We see males as absolutely crucial in helping to change attitudes that are put out by the culture. Women cant do it by themselves, (sic) males cant do it by themselves we need to work together. As is with most good things in life, COAR died before its mission fective program was shut down, due to a mess of differing politics, separate budgets and general bureaucracy, according to the Fine Print. Today, the battalion against sexism has too few soldiers. Reinforcements student groups like COAR are direly needed. Even if the seeds of our own individual efforts can only be reaped years later, we should start sowing so the next generations high school girls dont feel nervous about coming to UF. Zulkar Khan is a UF microbiology senior. His columns appear on Tuesdays.Battalion against sexism needs soldiersColumn Sit down, dim the lights and put on some soft upbeat music. Were going to talk about porn. Lets start with the basics those being that we are sexual organisms and therefore must have sex to reproduce. Unfortunately, we cannot simply sprout a child out of our bodies whenever we fancy. However, humans also have sex because it feels good, as do many other animals. How do we know that animals have sex because it feels good? Well for starters, they masturbate. There are even studies that show porcupines literally making dildos out of sticks. Note to female readers: Do not try that at home. So if sexual pleasure is so natural among other species, what makes humans so special that we must shun it and slap a large sticker of rejection on its face? Pornography has been used since history could be recorded. Different people groups across the span of time have incorporated pornography into a daily concept. Lets take the example of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. Images of pornography could be found as paintings on walls of brothels, as well as inside drinking cups and homes. The ancient Greeks and Romans even worshipped a minor fertility deity named Priapus who, when depicted, had a giant penis hanging out. What we could refer to as Greek mile markers for travelers were stone slabs with the face of the god Hermes and a penis jutting out below. Penises were viewed as good luck charms to the Greeks and Romans. In fact, they viewed the naked male body as the epitome of beauty. Another example is one of the most wellknown erotic writings is the Kama Sutra, which was developed in India as early as 400 BCE. It was originally written so husbands and wives could both mentally and physically please each other to make the marriage strong. Today, sexual obsession has made it into our television shows and movies. Giving a movie a rating of R for strong sexual content or a TV show rating of MA for mature content warns viewers before the show begins. Popular shows such as Game of Thrones, True Blood, Masters of Sex and Girls all include incredibly graphic sexual scenes. Ive become so numb to the sex and nudity in these shows that I sometimes forget Im essentially watching a better-acted, better-produced Pornography in the 21st century has evolved into a media giant. Nearly 12 percent of the websites on the Internet are pornographic. Thats a staggering 24,644,172 sites with 40 million American visitors. It has become a $2.84-billion industry per year in the U.S. This begs the question: Why do we care if people watch porn or not? The answer: Our Puritanized society preaches that porn will corrupt, that sexual addiction is the stuff of sin and is destroying the culture of our people. Sexuality is seen as the deterioration of society. This is coming from the same society that says birth control and abortion are against the word of the Bible, but having that same child out of wedlock is OK. Granted, sexuality should not be explored until one is mature and emotionally stable. Young men and women should not be slut-shamed based on their sexual interests. Its not anyones business. I believe there is a time and place for porn. Some people hate it, and some cannot live without it. Personally, I do not care. People have their own interests and desires, and so long as it is not hurting anyone, it should you care about adults who watch porn, just ask yourself, Why do I care? Most of the time, the answer will be, Because I have nothing better to care about. Rachel Kalisher is a UF anthropology and classics ju-Lets get it on: A brief history of pornographyColumn Zulkar Khanopinions@alligator.org Rachel Kalisheropinions@alligator.org Letter to the EditorBikes vs. carsAccording the Florida Bicycle Law Enforcement Guide, bikes are vehicles, and bikers are drivers. A cyclist has all the rights to the roadway applicable to any driver, except as to the special regulations regarding bicycles. Car and truck drivers MUST be looking for bikes when turning and pulling out of parking lots and driveways. Lets get rid of on-street parking on University Avenue and provide bike lanes in both directions from Waldo Road to Oaks Mall. Currently, bikes, pedestrians, parking meters, street lamps, trees, railings, chairs and newspaper boxes accident waiting to happen. I hate nearly being road pizza every day and every night because many drivers just dont look for bikes just cars. They pull into bike and pedestrian crossing areas without expecting something to already be there. Everyone is always in a hurry. If you, as a vehicle driver, hit a biker or pedestrian and seriously injure or kill them, will you ever be in such a hurry again? Do you really want to go on in life with the knowledge that you did this because you did not look for us? Residents and other property owners must clear their sidewalks of debris and overhanging tree branches, which is dangerous for us and a lawsuit just waiting to happen. With 80,000 UF, Santa Fe and public school students and other bikers, Gainesville is loaded with bikes. We must be cognizant of the others presence and right to the same territory. Its time we truly learn to slow down and co-exist for everyones safety. Bruce Frendahl UF alumnus and Gainesville residentI was disappointed to read the article in the Alligator on Monday telling undergraduates to stay out of the universitys law library. I believe the authors opinion is only one of a minority of the law school community. As a current UF law student, I want to offer a different perspective that I believe many of my fellow students at UF law embrace. The author depicts UF undergraduHe blames droves of undergrads for ruining the library, which I think is quite an exaggeration. Ive studied in the law library for two years now and have never had much of a problem. Sure, there have been students who have been loud or disrespectful, but its not an epidemic. Those people exist in every library in the world. The solution is to politely ask the person to stop talking, not to shoot mean glares and attempt to bar students from studying there. UF is an open campus. We dont partition the UF law campus from the general Student Body, and undergraduates have the right to access our library. In a similar manner, UF law students are allowed access to just about everything undergraduates are offered. It would be a shame if the undergraduate Student Body attempted to keep law students off of the main campus. Its great to be able to play intramural sports with the undergrads and have access to facilities like the numerous libraries, Southwest Recreation Center, the Reitz Union and the on-campus pools. Many law students cheer on the Gators sports teams or relax at Lake Wauburg. Theres even an independent, student-run newspaper where my colleague chose to voice his concerns. Our law school community should avoid giving undergraduates the idea that UF law students, or lawyers in general, are elitist. The fact that you are a law student doesnt put you above undergraduates or make your Also, I wouldnt want to be in the business of telling Pat Young where he can and cannot study.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia After 17 days of desperation and doubt over the missing Malaysia said an analysis of satellite data points to a heartbreaking conclusion: Flight 370 met its end in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, and none of those aboard survived. The somber announcement late Monday by Prime Minister Najib Razak left many more troubling questions unresolved about what went wrong aboard the Boeing 777 to take it so far off course. It also unleashed a maelstrom of sorrow and anger among the families of the jets 239 passengers and crew. A solemn Razak, clad in a black suit, read a brief statement about what he called an unparalleled study of the jets last-known signals to a satellite. The analysis showed that the missing plane, which took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early March 8, veered to a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. His carefully chosen words did not directly address the fate of those on board. But in a separate message, sent to some of their relatives just before he spoke, Malaysia Airlines beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. deep waters west of Perth, Australia, based on more thorough analysis of the brief signals the plane sent every hour to a satellite belonging to Inmarsat, a British company, even after other communication systems on the jetliner shut down. The pings did not include any location information. But Inmarsat type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort to zero in on the planes last position, as it reached the end of its fuel, Najib said. Najib gave no indication of exactly where in the Indian Ocean the plane was last heard, but searchers have sighted possible debris in an area about 1,240 miles southwest of would be released today. Some of the relatives who gathered to listen to Najib convulsed in grief at the news, with shrieks and uncontrolled sobs. Others collapsed into the arms of loved ones. My son!

Harrold founded the club team with Laura Kanouse, his friend from high school, when they realized there was no venue at UF for them to pursue their shared passion for golf. Many tried before and failed, so Laura and I started it, Harrold said. Kanouse, a 20-year-old UF biomedical engineering sophomore, said shes been competing in golf her whole life and thought UF needed a club team. She said the competition this weekend went well, but her goal is to recruit more team members and compete in more tournaments. I was really proud of everyone won overall by nine shots.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT FUNDING MEANS ALL EVENTS ARE FREE FOR UF STUDENTS. ALLISON STENDARDOAlligator Contributing WriterFor students who are tired of frozen microwaveable meals every night and are hoping to channel their inner Bobby Flay, UFs Culinary Arts Student Union is here. Spring 2013, but this is the clubs dent Government. This funding means all CASU events are free of charge for any UF student. The club is open to all majors, and its members range in skill from beginners to advanced. We really do appreciate anybody. Dont feel like you have to know anything about cooking, said Camille Jamshidi, a 19-year-old UF Spanish sophomore and multimedia director of CASU. The organization will be holding a food festival April 2 on Turlington Plaza, where members will serve food to any student who stops by. CASUs last cooking class of the semester will be held April 15 with a theme of modern cuisine. The cooking classes are held on campus at the Aquatic Food Pilot Plant and last less than two hours. We want our members to keep coming and reward them by giving them priority when signing up for classes, Jamshidi said. Past classes included a Chinese New Year cooking class at the beginning of the semester where they made dumplings, fried milk and a Vietnamese salad. Brandon Fung, a 19-year-old UF biology major, attended. Being a part of CASU helps me meet other people generally interested in cooking, he wrote in an email. Students like Alex Valdes, a 21year-old UF biochemistry junior, said hed be interested in taking classes offered by the club. Ive recently taken up cooking as a hobby, and these free classes would be much more fruitful for me than watching a YouTube video, he said. Cooking club heats up with new funding CRIST IS CRITICIZED FOR HIS SUPPORT OF OBAMAS HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE The re-election campaign of Florida Gov. Rick Scott is launching yet another television ad, but this one takes direct aim at former Gov. Charlie Crist. Scotts campaign organization said Monday it will spend $2 million on a statewide ad buy that will go after Crist for his support of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. Recent polls have shown Scott trailing Crist in a head-to-head matchup. This is now the second television ad launched by Scotts campaign in March even though the election is about seven months away. Crist is just one of a handful of Democrats who is seeking the nomination. Democrats and Crists own campaign responded quickly, saying the ad was misleading and was meant to distract voters from Scotts record. The ad features recent television footage of Crist saying the overhaul has been great for the state despite a difthe health care overhaul. It may be great for his political career, but it isnt great for the rest of us, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera said about the ad. One of the stories highlighted in the ad is that 300,000 health insurance policies issued by Florida Blue would be prehensive under the health care overhaul. But Paul Kluding, a spokesman for Florida Blue, said after the insurer sent out notices that most of the members have kept their plans with it since then. Kluding said the Jacksonville-based insurance company also did special outreach that helped Florida Blue customers shift over to policies offered by a health care and better premiums. He added that because the enrollment period has not yet ended, the company does not know how many have Kevin Cate, a spokesman for Crist, said the ad was part of the Rick Scott playbook. When, after four years, you have no record and no vision, you spend millions attacking your opponent, Cate said. The ad is being paid for by Scotts campaign organization, Lets Get to Work.New Gov.

Tomlinson and the UF mens golf team started competing in Palm City on Monday. Read the story on page 14.Florida plays Florida State tonightThe UF baseball team will take on FSU tonight at 6 p.m. in three matchups this season on March 18. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynWhen Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Doug McDermott failed, the rest of their teammates suffered the consequences. Duke, Kansas and Creighton were all favored heavily in their NCAA Tournament matchups, but each one stumbled in the Round of 32 after their stars underperformed in the spotlight. Yet when Will Yeguete scored one point on 0-of-5 shooting in the Southeastern Conference Championship, Florida still found a way atop the podium at the end of the contest. When Scottie Wilbekin took just nine shots and two free throws against Albany in the Round of 64, the Gators escaped and avoided a disastrous upset. And when Michael Frazier II shot 3 of 13 from three-point range duradvanced to his fourth straight Sweet 16. Each one of Floridas players has struggled at some point during the season, but the key has been that the Gators never have to endure a night where the entire team struggles. Someone always manages to step up. So if Frazier has a bad stretch, its not the end of the world for Donovan. Instead, the 18th-year coach has learned to adapt and rely on Fraziers other skills besides shooting the basketball. I think Michael, after the game, even during the game, there probably was a level of frustration, wanting to be more involved, wanting to inject himself, Donovan said about Fraziers perwhen a team makes a decision to guard us however they choose to guard us, theres always going to be something open and something available, and to me the greatest sign of respect is when you try to eliminate or take away something from our team. When Albany shut down Frazier in the Round of 64 by limiting him to just four three-point shots, the sophomore guard still stayed true to his defensive skills and was effective against the Great Danes Peter Hooley. And even when Frazier couldnt capitalize after being given nine opportunities to sink a three against Pitt, he still was a factor with three rebounds and a steal. Donovan compared Frazier to Joakim Noah during the 2007 national title game against Ohio State. More than anything, Donovan needed Noah to guard the help to prevent their three-point shooters from getting open. four fouls and just eight points on 1-of-3 shooting, Noah still found himself cutting down the nets for the second straight year. Joakim Noah was a non-factor in the game, but he just played his role and did what he needed to do to help our team, and Michael, based on however were being guarded, whatever is going on, just needs to play his role and take his shots when theyre there, Donovan said. He happened to get nine off against Pitt. He didnt get nearly as many off against Albany. Thats going to happen. were still scoring, and the offense I thought ran pretty well in terms of what we were getting and what we took advantage of. So when Patric Young sinks just 3 of 11 shots against Pitt, Donovan can still count on his senior center to have one of his best defensive games of the year. When everyone else refuses to make the big shots, Scottie Wilbekin shoots a perfect 6 high 21 points. The Gators show weaknesses every game, but there are enough weapons in Donovans arsenal that there will always be someone who steps up when the team needs it. I think in the game with the way Albany played us, [FinneySmith], Patric, Kasey Hill, there was opportunities for those guys to be a little bit more aggressive offensively and do a little bit more offensively, Donovan said. The opportunities were not quite there for Scottie and for Frazier, and I think thats whats made our team good is we can have different players in different situations step up and score and do things offensively. GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandThe last time Florida made it to the NCAA TournaThis season, the Gators have again advanced to the second round and are set to face off against the regional host and No. 3 seed Nittany Lions in University Park, Penn., tonight at 7 p.m. I have great respect for (Penn State head coach) Coquese (Washington), a great coach, a great program with ler said. Inevitably there is going to be growth and improvement and changes that make them a better unit throughout the year. Playing in a fantastic league like the about yourself good and bad that help you become a better team. I think all those things have taken place with them. Penn State, the No. 14 team in the thal combination of size and scoring that will be tough for Florida to contain. Senior guard Maggie Lucas is averaging a team-high 21.5 points per contest on 39.8 percent shooting and a 36.7 percent clip from downtown. She also has made 94.7 percent of her attempts at the charity stripe this year. Senior forward Ariel Edwards, who measures up at 6-foot-3, is averaging 15.4 points and nearly six boards per game.

EDEN OTEROAlligator Writer@edenotero_lAge before beauty doesnt really describe Floridas lacrosse team, but thats mainly because it has nothing to do with teams or even sports. This season, No. 4 Florida (102, 2-0 American Lacrosse Conference) has faced some of its toughest opponents in the country with its youngest team since UFs inaugural class. While its been noted many times that Floridas age was a concern, the class of freshmen has proven that all the recruiting hype wasnt just that. After starting the season against No. 1 UNC and then going against No. 3 Syracuse, No. 16 Loyola, now-No. 17 Stony Brook and most recently No. 20 Ohio State, Florida has shown what its 11 newest additions are truly made of. With the teams only losses coming against Syracuse and UNC, coach Amanda OLeary said the tough mentality that the team has shown is what makes its age irrelevant. Weve asked a lot of them, OLeary said. At one point against Dartthem out there and theyre responding. Freshman starters like Taylor Bresnahan and Caroline Fitzgerald have been the backbone of Floridas defense this season. Both Bresnahan and Fitzgerald have defended against the two top offensive opponents for every team Florida has faced this season, OLeary said. Fitzgerald has caused more turnovers (13) than the rest of the defense combined (10). Bresnahan has 12 draw controls, 11 caused turnovers and 11 ground balls. While Bresnahan and Fitzgerald control the defensive effort, freshmen Mollie Stevens and Sammi Burgess have made a huge impact on the Gators offense this season. Burgess, who has started in every game this season, is the second-highest scoring player for the Gators with 21 goals and 11 assists, giving her a combined 32 points this season. Shes also grabbed 16 ground balls. Stevens has also been an offensive powerhouse. The Centreville, Md., freshman has 20 goals and one assist to give her a combined total of 21 points. However, Stevens is more than a scorer. Coming into the season, Stevens had mainly played attacker. With Florida short on midDespite the position change, Stevens has excelled picking up 17 ground balls, causing four turnovers and taking four draw controls. While Stevens, Burgess, Fitzgerald and Bresnahan have become important players, the other seven freshmen on the team regular season. OLeary also said shes working to get the entire freshman the season with minutes under each of their belts. Against Dartmouth, OLeary changed the lineup so that more freshmen would start against the Big Green. OLeary said fans can look to seeing more of the freshgames. Were seeing a lot of help out there from our freshman class and thats we need to do because obviously theyre the future to this team, OLeary said. Its fun to see them mature and get better each and every day and do what we need them to do in those games. The freshmens success has been a mild surprise to OLeary. Replacing a large senior class is never easy especially one as important as the Gators inaugural class. Had you of asked me probably in the beginning of the year if we would be where we are right now, I would smile and probably say Oh, sure, but still that doubt in my mind, she said. Having graduated 13 seniors, thats a huge class to graduate and ones who had seen the majority of the time. 14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffSammi Burgess drives toward the net during Floridas 18-7 win against High Point on Feb. 15 at Donald R.

Valspar Invitational at The Floridian on Monday, UF is in 14th place out score through 36 holes. It is 16 strokes ahead of last-place Lamar on the par71 course. Although the Gators found success teams, they struggled in the second round by totaling 290 strokes. No. 2 Oklahoma State and No. 4 scores of 554 (-14). J.D. Tomlinson and Richard Donegan have each done their part for the tournament. Both are ranked inside the top 10 on the player leaderboard with under-par scores. Tomlinson is in a tie for fourth place 67 in the second round, bringing him to a 135 (-7). J.D had a good day, played some great golf, coach Buddy Alexander said in a release. Thats what weve been talking about trying to play smarter and he did it. Donegan isnt far behind, scoring a thanks to hitting 11 birdies. Richard Donegan had his best day as a Gator, Alexander said. I know hes capable of a lot; hes got a lot of horsepower and makes a lot of birdies. Today he cracked down, and it showed up on the scoreboard. But as good as Tomlinson and Donegan played Monday to help bring their team up, Ryan Orr and Conor Richardson brought the Gators down with their performances. The duo rounded out the last two Rounds 1 and 2. Orr is tied for 73rd place after shooting rounds of 77 and strokes over par. Eric Banks day turned out to be a combination of how his four teammates have done so far. leading to a 144 two-round total and a two-way tie for 50th place.

While all this basketball madness has been going on, the UF football team (Yes, it still exists!) started spring practice last week. I have the sunburn on the back of my neck to prove it. For those of you glued to your television screens watching people shoot round balls through hoops, Ive been watching the football team practice with oblong balls and do the same thing over and over again, and heres what Ive seen when the Gators half a mile away from the crowd. Jeff Driskel will start: Remember this guy? He was the starting quarterback last year when UF football fans still had hope and Jameis Winston was still actually considering playing baseball as a career. Driskel led the Gators to their best season under coach Will Muschamp in 2012, but by the end of last year, he had been almost forgotten 10 games of Tyler Murphy and Skyler Mornhinweg will do that. Well, rack your brain and try to remember, because barring anchange, Driskel is going to start under center whoops, in the shotgun in 2014. Driskel is by far the most advanced quarterback Florida has on its roster. He has looked good few practices, and his right leg looks fully healed from the broTennessee last year. tice, Muschamp had nothing but praise for his redshirt junior quarterback. He lauded his with a broken leg is no easy feat and said Driskel has his teammates and coaches respect. He had kind words about his arm strength and mobility, too. After a 4-8 season, Muschamps job is on the line. He isnt going to stick with a quarterback purely out of formality. Hes going to go with whomever gives Florida the best chance to win. For better or worse, Driskel is that guy. Will Grier is not ready: On a related note, Grier is not the Gators savior at quarterback just yet. The four-star freshman out of Davidson, N.C., enrolled early at Florida to get a head start on his college career. He needs it. The ball comes out of his hand easily, and he throws hard. But he has plenty to work on. He has occasionally looked slow in the pocket, holding onto the ball for too long. For every deep, accurate pass he has thrown, there has also been a wild one thats too far in front or behind a receiver. As offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said to him during practice Saturday, It aint damn Davidson. Jalen Tabor will be vital: Florida could have had the deepest, most talented secondary in the country this season. Instead, unsurprisingly, juniors Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson decided to forgo NFL Draft. Its impossible to blame them for their decision not entering the draft could have cost them millions of dollars in the pros. However, their departure leaves the Gators secondary a little green behind the ears. Instead of two extraordinarily talented and experienced corners leading the unit, sophomore Vernon Hargreaves III is the projected top dog on the outside. Whoever comes after that has a big One of the top candidates to freshman Jalen Tabor. from Arizona to Florida in January and enrolled in school shortly after. Tabor has appeared inconsistent in the early going of spring football. He occasionally steps up to make a big play, but other times draws his coaches ire. The Gators got lucky last season. Hargreaves making an immediate impact in the secondary was a luxury. This season, Tabor carrying his weight looks like it will be a necessity. TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15William A.

Both the Gators and the Nittany Lions competed at this seasons Junkanoo Jam in the Bahamas in November 2013. If Florida hadnt lost in an upset to then-winless Illinois State, tonights game would have been the two sides second matchup. Although the two teams didnt play each other, the Gators observed the Nittany Lions during its time in the Bahamas. We had the chance to see them in the Bahamas, redshirt junior Kayla Lewis said. It was good to see them again, but teams change a lot from November to March. Its good to see a team play, but its different to play against them, you get a feel for the emotional things so it was good to see them play. As far as comparable to the SEC, they have a lot of size like a lot of teams in the SEC have big teams like Tennessee, LSU, South Carolina, which have those 6-3, 6-4 kids, multiples down low. We have seen it before. The tough SEC schedule Florida endured will surely come in handy tonight against Penn State in a number of ways. Penn State has the size of some elite SEC teams like Tennessee and South Carolina. However, because the game is being played in their arena, the atmosphere will surely be SEC-like as well. with great crowds like Kentucky, like Tennessee, like has prepared us for something like this, Lewis said. As a team, weve overcome so much and seen so many challenges. Having a big crowd is something that we smile at (and say), Lets do it, what else ya got? Thats kind of the attitude our team has and has had all season, so were excited.

The norovirus spread through 22 members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, which led them to contact the Centers for Disease Control to investigate the incident. Paul Myers, administrator for the Alachua County Health Department, said the outbreak is contained at the moment. Symptoms included vomiting, nausea and diarrhea. The health department obtained samples said, but no further action was deemed necessary. This is not a stomach bug that is an issue, Myers said. Diane Webb, a nurse at the Student Health Care Center and a specialist in infectious diseases, said the incident likely occurred after a shared meal at the fraternity house, which is why the health department had to be involved. The Alachua County Health Department is responsible for inspecting any facility on campus that prepares, handles and serves food, she wrote in an email. However, because the incident occurred so soon after Spring Break, it could have also been a gastrointestinal illness brought back from vacation, she said. Incidents like this do not happen often and are unpredictable, she said. This should not impact anyone else on campus unless they have close contact with someone who is sick, she said. Our goal is to keep our students healthy.

Allergy immunotherapy is often effective in reducing allergy symptoms, Rider said. However, it may take months for a noticeable improvement. Chapman said pollen is most abundant now, as levels rise from January to about June. Spring, commonly known as allergy season, causes some people to try unconventional methods such as the honey remedy to stop their reactions to rampant pollen. Chapman said he has heard of people being even more direct with their pollen consumption. Some people buy straight pollen from pollen producers, he added. They sprinkle a little on their cereal. However, he said this habit is a little scary because there are so many other possible allergens in the pollen. If allergies are severe, eating a lot of it could be like playing Russian roulette, he said. Honey could even turn out to be dangerous. He brought up an example of one woman who bought honey to help a pollen allergy. She had an allergic reaction to the orange traces in the honey, which caused further medical problems. Yaissy Solis, a 22-year-old UF journalism senior, said she was surrounded by allergy problems in her family, and they had their own home remedies. Im Cuban, so in my family... you drink a mixture of honey and lime juice, she said. It works for me, so I wouldnt be surprised if honey would (help allergies).

One was Kelsey Naylor, who worked at the co-op for about eight months and She said the board informed the time for any reason during a member meeting in February. Naylor said employees began to feel their jobs were at risk when two longterm workers were laid off for various reasons after the meeting, and the rest were told that the co-op was not a democracy by board of directors chair Lucian Kragiel. We didnt want to say anything. Adding to the employees worries about the stores management was the lack of worker representation on the board.

In her speech, Cox spoke about her childhood in Mobile, Ala. She said she dreamt about being a dancer, but her mother would not let her because it was too gay. Her experiences as a transgender woman led her to offer the audience advice calling a trans woman a man is an act of violence, she said. She also discussed gender policing and being bullied for being the typical male gender expression. However, Cox said that everyone is policed for his or her gender, not just LGBT individuals. What would it be like if each and every one of us decided were not going to be the gender police today? Cox said. And were going to allow people to be who they are and express themselves however they want to, and were not going to judge them. Cox ended her speech by encouraging audience members to have conversations with love to overissues and understand people better.

Todays question: Do you have spring allergies?One would think with the recent press coverage that a lot of progress is being made in Hollywood: Ellen DeGeneres served pizza at the Academy Awards, and Jennifer Lawrence got a pixie cut. It all looks pretty good from where I sit. But in all seriousness, the latest Academy Awards was celebrated for its major milestones for people of color. Lupita Nyongo became the sixth black actress to win Best Supporting Actress, Steve McQueen became and Sciences. Also, Saturday Night Live recognized in January that while white women can be funny, black member in six years, Sasheer Zamata. However, not everything is colorful in Hollywood. With the recent news that the white Rooney Mara has been cast to play the Native American role of Tiger Lily that there is trouble in Neverland. The decision to cast a non-Native American actress in a Native American role has sparked controversy, Twitter debates and an online petition asking Warner Bros. to stop casting white actors to play people of color that has received about 8,100 signatures as of press time. However, some may view this backlash as all talk. U.S. News referred to it as an obligatory Twitter freakout. And Warner Bros. may be of the same opinion that they can ride out this predicted and routine outrage. The fact is, Warner Bros. will not risk supporting a no-name Native American actress when it can draw in audiences with a well-known face like Maras. When Warner Bros. can make $30 million in ticket sales on a movie, a petition signed by 8,000 people seems pretty makes theaters, the coverage of this topic is still important for the long-term reorganization of Hollywood. According to the 2010 U.S. census, Native Americans make up about 2 percent of the population, but according to a Screen Actors Guild report, Native American actors in 2008. Also, according to a University of Southern California study, only 10.8 perfrom 2007 to 2012 were black, 4.2 percent were Hispanic, and 5 percent were Asian. This leaves about three-quarters of all speaking characters to white actors and actresses. So relatively, whites in Hollywood are more prevalent than water on Earth. given to another white actor, it is disheartening. Furthermore, we should stop pigeonholing Native Americans into primarily Western roles or stories that only exist in the past. No wonder there is not a huge pool of Native American actors to choose from. Why more Native American actors, we need to promote their presence in modern-day roles. Im not upset about the casting of Tiger Lily to a lily-white actress because it doesnt maintain the traditional canon. Rather, I think we need to upset canons more often to present a more realistic representation of the population. Lauren Adamson is a UF journalism junior.

Supporters of the measure are proposing stringent regulations on potential distributors to dispel naysayers fears. The plan to adapt a better medical marijuana policy in Florida isnt baseless; after all, we have California and Colorado the wild west of weed, according to the Tampa Tribune as models of systems that have failed. The rules and practices of the California weed industry have been evolving since 1996, the TriHowever, supporters of medical marijuana in Florida know they wont gain momentum if they propose implementing the same loose system in Florida. Furthermore, the amendment bune that Floridas November ballot would include a pretty strict set of rules when it comes to the production and sale of medical marijuana in the state. Strict regulation proposals need to be on the table long before the amendment goes on the ballot, and organizations like United for Care recognize this. About 36 percent of Floridas registered voters identify as Republicans, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Democrats are still slightly in the lead, comprising 40 percent of Florida voters. Still, 36 percent is nothing to sniff at, especially since advocates for medical marijuana need to win over the conservative pockets of the state come election season. Unlike those implemented in California and Colorado, Floridas medical marijuana policy would be regulated from the getgo. This, advocates argue, is the crucial difference. Out west, the and those in authority know that its much easier to loosen political grip than it is to tighten. In addition, according to the Tribune, the amendment states that the Florida Department of Health would have 60 days from the bills effective date Jan. 6, 2015 to form policies governing the issuing of medical marijuana ID cards to caregivers, the registration of treatment centers to dispense marijuana (including standards of security, record-keeping, inspection, labeling and testing) and the limits on how much marijuana a patient may obtain. The current political and economic climate seems favorable to the passage of a medical marijuana bill in Florida. The Tririous inquiry about opening a marijuana-growing operation; a trade magazine is offering a seminar this weekend for everyone who plans to participate in Floridas future legal cannabis industry to meet the experts on legal and medical aspects of legalized marijuana; and Medical Marijuana Tampa has mobilized quickly to educate citizens about the positive impact the bill could have. The signs, then, are clear: Its high time pun intended that Florida adopt progressive, well-structured medical marijuana policies.

TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7I wasnt sure how to reply to a question that sat in my inbox. It came from a high school senior who wrote about how scared she is by the descriptions of UFs rape culture. She ended on a personal note: As an incoming female freshman, would she also have a one-in-four chance of being sexually assaulted? As a male columnist, after going through hundreds of pages of documents reports of criminal incidents, descriptions of internalized patriarchy in Greek life, sexual assault statistics you start to feel desensitized. And then you painfully remember the obvious: For women, sexism is not some abstract issue. Being degraded on a daily basis is the reality of many women on our campus. almost entirely led by women. There are countless women, nameless and faceless in the pages of history, who challenged the male supremacy of their eras. Even today, there are women, from the distant dunes of Saudi Arabia to the houses on Sorority Row so close to us, who are speaking out. They are marginalized, but who can deny their impact? It is because of these women not some mysterious group of chivalrous men that I am able to write on sexism. By pushing sexism into mainstream discourse, these women allow folks like me to do our timid part. We are indebted to those women who valiantly persevere on, despite being called sassy-mouthed feminazis. The question remains: Whats the ism? For me, it appears simple. It parallels the role whites had in the comes responsibility. Male privilege provides no exception to this moral principle. We all have a part to play in ensuring that UF is not conducive to sexism. At the present, we have a rape culture, so were quite far from that goal. But lets not sell ourselves short either. The Fine Print reported that UF had one of the most cutting-edge and innovative rape awareness programs in the 1980s. Our crown jewel was a group called Campus Organized Against Rape. In the landmark book about sexual assault on college campuses, I Never Called It Rape, the organization was recognized as one of the nations most comprehensive programs, according to the Fine Print. Being comprehensive, COAR dug deep and went for the roots of the rape culture. With half of its members being male, COAR focused on how both males and females are socialized about their sex roles, i.e. men are expected to be sexually aggressive while submissiveness is the standard for women. Its founder told the Gainesville Sun in 1986, We see males as absolutely crucial in helping to change attitudes that are put out by the culture. Women cant do it by themselves, (sic) males cant do it by themselves we need to work together. As is with most good things in life, COAR died before its mission fective program was shut down, due to a mess of differing politics, separate budgets and general bureaucracy, according to the Fine Print. Today, the battalion against sexism has too few soldiers. Reinforcements student groups like COAR are direly needed. Even if the seeds of our own individual efforts can only be reaped years later, we should start sowing so the next generations high school girls dont feel nervous about coming to UF. Zulkar Khan is a UF microbiology senior. His columns appear on Tuesdays.Battalion against sexism needs soldiersColumn Sit down, dim the lights and put on some soft upbeat music. Were going to talk about porn. Lets start with the basics those being that we are sexual organisms and therefore must have sex to reproduce. Unfortunately, we cannot simply sprout a child out of our bodies whenever we fancy. However, humans also have sex because it feels good, as do many other animals. How do we know that animals have sex because it feels good? Well for starters, they masturbate. There are even studies that show porcupines literally making dildos out of sticks. Note to female readers: Do not try that at home. So if sexual pleasure is so natural among other species, what makes humans so special that we must shun it and slap a large sticker of rejection on its face? Pornography has been used since history could be recorded. Different people groups across the span of time have incorporated pornography into a daily concept. Lets take the example of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. Images of pornography could be found as paintings on walls of brothels, as well as inside drinking cups and homes. The ancient Greeks and Romans even worshipped a minor fertility deity named Priapus who, when depicted, had a giant penis hanging out. What we could refer to as Greek mile markers for travelers were stone slabs with the face of the god Hermes and a penis jutting out below. Penises were viewed as good luck charms to the Greeks and Romans. In fact, they viewed the naked male body as the epitome of beauty. Another example is one of the most wellknown erotic writings is the Kama Sutra, which was developed in India as early as 400 BCE. It was originally written so husbands and wives could both mentally and physically please each other to make the marriage strong. Today, sexual obsession has made it into our television shows and movies. Giving a movie a rating of R for strong sexual content or a TV show rating of MA for mature content warns viewers before the show begins. Popular shows such as Game of Thrones, True Blood, Masters of Sex and Girls all include incredibly graphic sexual scenes. Ive become so numb to the sex and nudity in these shows that I sometimes forget Im essentially watching a better-acted, better-produced Pornography in the 21st century has evolved into a media giant. Nearly 12 percent of the websites on the Internet are pornographic. Thats a staggering 24,644,172 sites with 40 million American visitors. It has become a $2.84-billion industry per year in the U.S. This begs the question: Why do we care if people watch porn or not? The answer: Our Puritanized society preaches that porn will corrupt, that sexual addiction is the stuff of sin and is destroying the culture of our people. Sexuality is seen as the deterioration of society. This is coming from the same society that says birth control and abortion are against the word of the Bible, but having that same child out of wedlock is OK. Granted, sexuality should not be explored until one is mature and emotionally stable. Young men and women should not be slut-shamed based on their sexual interests. Its not anyones business. I believe there is a time and place for porn. Some people hate it, and some cannot live without it. Personally, I do not care. People have their own interests and desires, and so long as it is not hurting anyone, it should you care about adults who watch porn, just ask yourself, Why do I care? Most of the time, the answer will be, Because I have nothing better to care about. Rachel Kalisher is a UF anthropology and classics ju-Lets get it on: A brief history of pornographyColumn Zulkar Khanopinions@alligator.org Rachel Kalisheropinions@alligator.org Letter to the EditorBikes vs. carsAccording the Florida Bicycle Law Enforcement Guide, bikes are vehicles, and bikers are drivers. A cyclist has all the rights to the roadway applicable to any driver, except as to the special regulations regarding bicycles. Car and truck drivers MUST be looking for bikes when turning and pulling out of parking lots and driveways. Lets get rid of on-street parking on University Avenue and provide bike lanes in both directions from Waldo Road to Oaks Mall. Currently, bikes, pedestrians, parking meters, street lamps, trees, railings, chairs and newspaper boxes accident waiting to happen. I hate nearly being road pizza every day and every night because many drivers just dont look for bikes just cars. They pull into bike and pedestrian crossing areas without expecting something to already be there. Everyone is always in a hurry. If you, as a vehicle driver, hit a biker or pedestrian and seriously injure or kill them, will you ever be in such a hurry again? Do you really want to go on in life with the knowledge that you did this because you did not look for us? Residents and other property owners must clear their sidewalks of debris and overhanging tree branches, which is dangerous for us and a lawsuit just waiting to happen. With 80,000 UF, Santa Fe and public school students and other bikers, Gainesville is loaded with bikes. We must be cognizant of the others presence and right to the same territory. Its time we truly learn to slow down and co-exist for everyones safety. Bruce Frendahl UF alumnus and Gainesville residentI was disappointed to read the article in the Alligator on Monday telling undergraduates to stay out of the universitys law library. I believe the authors opinion is only one of a minority of the law school community. As a current UF law student, I want to offer a different perspective that I believe many of my fellow students at UF law embrace. The author depicts UF undergraduHe blames droves of undergrads for ruining the library, which I think is quite an exaggeration. Ive studied in the law library for two years now and have never had much of a problem. Sure, there have been students who have been loud or disrespectful, but its not an epidemic. Those people exist in every library in the world. The solution is to politely ask the person to stop talking, not to shoot mean glares and attempt to bar students from studying there. UF is an open campus. We dont partition the UF law campus from the general Student Body, and undergraduates have the right to access our library. In a similar manner, UF law students are allowed access to just about everything undergraduates are offered. It would be a shame if the undergraduate Student Body attempted to keep law students off of the main campus. Its great to be able to play intramural sports with the undergrads and have access to facilities like the numerous libraries, Southwest Recreation Center, the Reitz Union and the on-campus pools. Many law students cheer on the Gators sports teams or relax at Lake Wauburg. Theres even an independent, student-run newspaper where my colleague chose to voice his concerns. Our law school community should avoid giving undergraduates the idea that UF law students, or lawyers in general, are elitist. The fact that you are a law student doesnt put you above undergraduates or make your Also, I wouldnt want to be in the business of telling Pat Young where he can and cannot study. Have you seen those biceps? As a former UF undergraduate and current UF law student, I can say with greatest collective body of students in the world.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia After 17 days of desperation and doubt over the missing Malaysia said an analysis of satellite data points to a heartbreaking conclusion: Flight 370 met its end in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, and none of those aboard survived. The somber announcement late Monday by Prime Minister Najib Razak left many more troubling questions unresolved about what went wrong aboard the Boeing 777 to take it so far off course. It also unleashed a maelstrom of sorrow and anger among the families of the jets 239 passengers and crew. A solemn Razak, clad in a black suit, read a brief statement about what he called an unparalleled study of the jets last-known signals to a satellite. The analysis showed that the missing plane, which took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early March 8, veered to a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. His carefully chosen words did not directly address the fate of those on board. But in a separate message, sent to some of their relatives just before he spoke, Malaysia Airlines beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. deep waters west of Perth, Australia, based on more thorough analysis of the brief signals the plane sent every hour to a satellite belonging to Inmarsat, a British company, even after other communication systems on the jetliner shut down. The pings did not include any location information. But Inmarsat type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort to zero in on the planes last position, as it reached the end of its fuel, Najib said. Najib gave no indication of exactly where in the Indian Ocean the plane was last heard, but searchers have sighted possible debris in an area about 1,240 miles southwest of would be released today. Some of the relatives who gathered to listen to Najib convulsed in grief at the news, with shrieks and uncontrolled sobs. Others collapsed into the arms of loved ones. My son! My son! cried a woman in a group of about 50 gathered at a hotel near Beijings airport before falling to her knees. Minutes later, medical teams carried one elderly man out of the conference room on a stretcher, his face covered by a jacket.

The search is now considered a race against time because the battery life of the pinger in the black boxes the common name for the cockpit voice and data recorders normally attached to the fuselage may run out in the next two weeks. The search for the wreckage and the planes recorders could take years because the ocean is up to 23,000 feet deep. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014AP Photo Relatives of passengers aboard the Malaysia Airlines jet MH370 grieve after being told of the latest news in Beijing: New analysis indicates the missing plane crashed in a remote area of the Indian Ocean.

Harrold founded the club team with Laura Kanouse, his friend from high school, when they realized there was no venue at UF for them to pursue their shared passion for golf. Many tried before and failed, so Laura and I started it, Harrold said.

The organization will be holding a food festival April 2 on Turlington Plaza, where members will serve food to any student who stops by. CASUs last cooking class of the semester will be held April 15 with a theme of modern cuisine. The cooking classes are held on campus at the Aquatic Food Pilot Plant and last less than two hours. We want our members to keep coming and reward them by giving them priority when signing up for classes, Jamshidi said.

Rick Scott is launching yet another television ad, but this one takes direct aim at former Gov. Charlie Crist. Scotts campaign organization said Monday it will spend $2 million on a statewide ad buy that will go after Crist for his support of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. Recent polls have shown Scott trailing Crist in a head-to-head matchup. This is now the second television ad launched by Scotts campaign in March even though the election is about seven months away. Crist is just one of a handful of Democrats who is seeking the nomination. Democrats and Crists own campaign responded quickly, saying the ad was misleading and was meant to distract voters from Scotts record. The ad features recent television footage of Crist saying the overhaul has been great for the state despite a difthe health care overhaul. It may be great for his political career, but it isnt great for the rest of us, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera said about the ad. One of the stories highlighted in the ad is that 300,000 health insurance policies issued by Florida Blue would be prehensive under the health care overhaul. But Paul Kluding, a spokesman for Florida Blue, said after the insurer sent out notices that most of the members have kept their plans with it since then. Kluding said the Jacksonville-based insurance company also did special outreach that helped Florida Blue customers shift over to policies offered by a health care and better premiums. He added that because the enrollment period has not yet ended, the company does not know how many have Kevin Cate, a spokesman for Crist, said the ad was part of the Rick Scott playbook. When, after four years, you have no record and no vision, you spend millions attacking your opponent, Cate said. The ad is being paid for by Scotts campaign organization, Lets Get to Work.New Gov.

TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gymnastics team learns regional siteThe No. 1 UF gymnastics team will compete at the University Park Regional in University Park, Penn., on April 5 at 4 p.m. J.D. Tomlinson and the UF mens golf team started competing in Palm City on Monday. Read the story on page 14.Florida plays Florida State tonightThe UF baseball team will take on FSU tonight at 6 p.m. in three matchups this season on March 18. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynWhen Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Doug McDermott failed, the rest of their teammates suffered the consequences. Duke, Kansas and Creighton were all favored heavily in their NCAA Tournament matchups, but each one stumbled in the Round of 32 after their stars underperformed in the spotlight. Yet when Will Yeguete scored one point on 0-of-5 shooting in the Southeastern Conference Championship, Florida still found a way atop the podium at the end of the contest. When Scottie Wilbekin took just nine shots and two free throws against Albany in the Round of 64, the Gators escaped and avoided a disastrous upset. And when Michael Frazier II shot 3 of 13 from three-point range duradvanced to his fourth straight Sweet 16. Each one of Floridas players has struggled at some point during the season, but the key has been that the Gators never have to endure a night where the entire team struggles. Someone always manages to step up. So if Frazier has a bad stretch, its not the end of the world for Donovan. Instead, the 18th-year coach has learned to adapt and rely on Fraziers other skills besides shooting the basketball. I think Michael, after the game, even during the game, there probably was a level of frustration, wanting to be more involved, wanting to inject himself, Donovan said about Fraziers perwhen a team makes a decision to guard us however they choose to guard us, theres always going to be something open and something available, and to me the greatest sign of respect is when you try to eliminate or take away something from our team. When Albany shut down Frazier in the Round of 64 by limiting him to just four three-point shots, the sophomore guard still stayed true to his defensive skills and was effective against the Great Danes Peter Hooley. And even when Frazier couldnt capitalize after being given nine opportunities to sink a three against Pitt, he still was a factor with three rebounds and a steal. Donovan compared Frazier to Joakim Noah during the 2007 national title game against Ohio State. More than anything, Donovan needed Noah to guard the help to prevent their three-point shooters from getting open. four fouls and just eight points on 1-of-3 shooting, Noah still found himself cutting down the nets for the second straight year. Joakim Noah was a non-factor in the game, but he just played his role and did what he needed to do to help our team, and Michael, based on however were being guarded, whatever is going on, just needs to play his role and take his shots when theyre there, Donovan said. He happened to get nine off against Pitt. He didnt get nearly as many off against Albany. Thats going to happen. were still scoring, and the offense I thought ran pretty well in terms of what we were getting and what we took advantage of. So when Patric Young sinks just 3 of 11 shots against Pitt, Donovan can still count on his senior center to have one of his best defensive games of the year. When everyone else refuses to make the big shots, Scottie Wilbekin shoots a perfect 6 high 21 points. The Gators show weaknesses every game, but there are enough weapons in Donovans arsenal that there will always be someone who steps up when the team needs it. I think in the game with the way Albany played us, [FinneySmith], Patric, Kasey Hill, there was opportunities for those guys to be a little bit more aggressive offensively and do a little bit more offensively, Donovan said. The opportunities were not quite there for Scottie and for Frazier, and I think thats whats made our team good is we can have different players in different situations step up and score and do things offensively. GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandThe last time Florida made it to the NCAA TournaThis season, the Gators have again advanced to the second round and are set to face off against the regional host and No. 3 seed Nittany Lions in University Park, Penn., tonight at 7 p.m. I have great respect for (Penn State head coach) Coquese (Washington), a great coach, a great program with ler said. Inevitably there is going to be growth and improvement and changes that make them a better unit throughout the year. Playing in a fantastic league like the about yourself good and bad that help you become a better team. I think all those things have taken place with them. Penn State, the No. 14 team in the thal combination of size and scoring that will be tough for Florida to contain. Senior guard Maggie Lucas is averaging a team-high 21.5 points per contest on 39.8 percent shooting and a 36.7 percent clip from downtown. She also has made 94.7 percent of her attempts at the charity stripe this year. Senior forward Ariel Edwards, who measures up at 6-foot-3, is averaging 15.4 points and nearly six boards per game. Something that weve known all year is that were smaller than everybody else, redshirt sophomore Carlie Needles said. Were a team that likes to play in transition and thats play in transition as much as we do. Were going to try to use that to our advantage like we have been all year and try to force them to do things theyre not comfortable with.

EDEN OTEROAlligator Writer@edenotero_lAge before beauty doesnt really describe Floridas lacrosse team, but thats mainly because it has nothing to do with teams or even sports. This season, No. 4 Florida (102, 2-0 American Lacrosse Conference) has faced some of its toughest opponents in the country with its youngest team since UFs inaugural class. While its been noted many times that Floridas age was a concern, the class of freshmen has proven that all the recruiting hype wasnt just that. After starting the season against No. 1 UNC and then going against No. 3 Syracuse, No. 16 Loyola, now-No. 17 Stony Brook and most recently No. 20 Ohio State, Florida has shown what its 11 newest additions are truly made of. With the teams only losses coming against Syracuse and UNC, coach Amanda OLeary said the tough mentality that the team has shown is what makes its age irrelevant. Weve asked a lot of them, OLeary said. At one point against Dartthem out there and theyre responding. Freshman starters like Taylor Bresnahan and Caroline Fitzgerald have been the backbone of Floridas defense this season. Both Bresnahan and Fitzgerald have defended against the two top offensive opponents for every team Florida has faced this season, OLeary said. Fitzgerald has caused more turnovers (13) than the rest of the defense combined (10). Bresnahan has 12 draw controls, 11 caused turnovers and 11 ground balls. While Bresnahan and Fitzgerald control the defensive effort, freshmen Mollie Stevens and Sammi Burgess have made a huge impact on the Gators offense this season. Burgess, who has started in every game this season, is the second-highest scoring player for the Gators with 21 goals and 11 assists, giving her a combined 32 points this season. Shes also grabbed 16 ground balls. Stevens has also been an offensive powerhouse. The Centreville, Md., freshman has 20 goals and one assist to give her a combined total of 21 points. However, Stevens is more than a scorer. Coming into the season, Stevens had mainly played attacker. With Florida short on midDespite the position change, Stevens has excelled picking up 17 ground balls, causing four turnovers and taking four draw controls. While Stevens, Burgess, Fitzgerald and Bresnahan have become important players, the other seven freshmen on the team regular season. OLeary also said shes working to get the entire freshman the season with minutes under each of their belts. Against Dartmouth, OLeary changed the lineup so that more freshmen would start against the Big Green. OLeary said fans can look to seeing more of the freshgames. Were seeing a lot of help out there from our freshman class and thats we need to do because obviously theyre the future to this team, OLeary said. Its fun to see them mature and get better each and every day and do what we need them to do in those games. The freshmens success has been a mild surprise to OLeary. Replacing a large senior class is never easy especially one as important as the Gators inaugural class. Had you of asked me probably in the beginning of the year if we would be where we are right now, I would smile and probably say Oh, sure, but still that doubt in my mind, she said. Having graduated 13 seniors, thats a huge class to graduate and ones who had seen the majority of the time. 14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffSammi Burgess drives toward the net during Floridas 18-7 win against High Point on Feb. 15 at Donald R.

Tomlinson tees off on Day 2 of the SunTrust Gator Invitational on Feb. 16 at the Mark Bostick Golf Course. Tomlinson is in fourth place after Day 1 of the Valspar Invitational. Burgess is second on team in pointsMENS GOLF LAYNE WEITZELAlligator Writer@laynejweitzelTwo Florida golfers most likely slept pretty well Monday night, and two others, not so much. Valspar Invitational at The Floridian on Monday, UF is in 14th place out score through 36 holes. It is 16 strokes ahead of last-place Lamar on the par71 course. Although the Gators found success teams, they struggled in the second round by totaling 290 strokes. No. 2 Oklahoma State and No. 4 scores of 554 (-14). J.D. Tomlinson and Richard Donegan have each done their part for the tournament. Both are ranked inside the top 10 on the player leaderboard with under-par scores. Tomlinson is in a tie for fourth place 67 in the second round, bringing him to a 135 (-7). J.D had a good day, played some great golf, coach Buddy Alexander said in a release. Thats what weve been talking about trying to play smarter and he did it. Donegan isnt far behind, scoring a thanks to hitting 11 birdies. Richard Donegan had his best day as a Gator, Alexander said. I know hes capable of a lot; hes got a lot of horsepower and makes a lot of birdies. Today he cracked down, and it showed up on the scoreboard. But as good as Tomlinson and Donegan played Monday to help bring their team up, Ryan Orr and Conor Richardson brought the Gators down with their performances. The duo rounded out the last two Rounds 1 and 2. Orr is tied for 73rd place after shooting rounds of 77 and strokes over par. Eric Banks day turned out to be a combination of how his four teammates have done so far. leading to a 144 two-round total and a two-way tie for 50th place.

While all this basketball madness has been going on, the UF football team (Yes, it still exists!) started spring practice last week. I have the sunburn on the back of my neck to prove it. For those of you glued to your television screens watching people shoot round balls through hoops, Ive been watching the football team practice with oblong balls and do the same thing over and over again, and heres what Ive seen when the Gators half a mile away from the crowd. Jeff Driskel will start: Remember this guy? He was the starting quarterback last year when UF football fans still had hope and Jameis Winston was still actually considering playing baseball as a career. Driskel led the Gators to their best season under coach Will Muschamp in 2012, but by the end of last year, he had been almost forgotten 10 games of Tyler Murphy and Skyler Mornhinweg will do that. Well, rack your brain and try to remember, because barring anchange, Driskel is going to start under center whoops, in the shotgun in 2014. Driskel is by far the most advanced quarterback Florida has on its roster. He has looked good few practices, and his right leg looks fully healed from the broTennessee last year. tice, Muschamp had nothing but praise for his redshirt junior quarterback. He lauded his with a broken leg is no easy feat and said Driskel has his teammates and coaches respect. He had kind words about his arm strength and mobility, too. After a 4-8 season, Muschamps job is on the line. He isnt going to stick with a quarterback purely out of formality. Hes going to go with whomever gives Florida the best chance to win. For better or worse, Driskel is that guy. Will Grier is not ready: On a related note, Grier is not the Gators savior at quarterback just yet. The four-star freshman out of Davidson, N.C., enrolled early at Florida to get a head start on his college career. He needs it. The ball comes out of his hand easily, and he throws hard. But he has plenty to work on. He has occasionally looked slow in the pocket, holding onto the ball for too long. For every deep, accurate pass he has thrown, there has also been a wild one thats too far in front or behind a receiver. As offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said to him during practice Saturday, It aint damn Davidson. Jalen Tabor will be vital: Florida could have had the deepest, most talented secondary in the country this season. Instead, unsurprisingly, juniors Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson decided to forgo NFL Draft. Its impossible to blame them for their decision not entering the draft could have cost them millions of dollars in the pros. However, their departure leaves the Gators secondary a little green behind the ears. Instead of two extraordinarily talented and experienced corners leading the unit, sophomore Vernon Hargreaves III is the projected top dog on the outside. Whoever comes after that has a big One of the top candidates to freshman Jalen Tabor. from Arizona to Florida in January and enrolled in school shortly after. Tabor has appeared inconsistent in the early going of spring football. He occasionally steps up to make a big play, but other times draws his coaches ire. The Gators got lucky last season. Hargreaves making an immediate impact in the secondary was a luxury. This season, Tabor carrying his weight looks like it will be a necessity. TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15William A.

Adam LichtensteinTwitter: @alichtenstein24 Gators and Nittany Lions played in Bahamas but didnt face each otherwho is smaller than you is a little more uncomfortable than playing someone that is the same size as you. Both the Gators and the Nittany Lions competed at this seasons Junkanoo Jam in the Bahamas in November 2013. If Florida hadnt lost in an upset to then-winless Illinois State, tonights game would have been the two sides second matchup. Although the two teams didnt play each other, the Gators observed the Nittany Lions during its time in the Bahamas. We had the chance to see them in the Bahamas, redshirt junior Kayla Lewis said. It was good to see them again, but teams change a lot from November to March. Its good to see a team play, but its different to play against them, you get a feel for the emotional things so it was good to see them play. As far as comparable to the SEC, they have a lot of size like a lot of teams in the SEC have big teams like Tennessee, LSU, South Carolina, which have those 6-3, 6-4 kids, multiples down low. We have seen it before. The tough SEC schedule Florida endured will surely come in handy tonight against Penn State in a number of ways. Penn State has the size of some elite SEC teams like Tennessee and South Carolina. However, because the game is being played in their arena, the atmosphere will surely be SEC-like as well. with great crowds like Kentucky, like Tennessee, like has prepared us for something like this, Lewis said. As a team, weve overcome so much and seen so many challenges. Having a big crowd is something that we smile at (and say), Lets do it, what else ya got? Thats kind of the attitude our team has and has had all season, so were excited.
