GEOFFREY LIOONS BRACKET WAS NO. 4 IN THE BILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE UNTIL SATURDAY. PURVI PANDITAlligator Contributing WriterGeoffrey Lioon nearly scored $100,000 from Warren Buffett. The 24-year-old UF student was ranked No. 4 in the highly publicized Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge until Saturday. When Arizona lost, Lioon fell to number 4,792 out of the possible 15 million entrants. I didnt get anything done because I had to watch every game, Lioon said. No studying was done because I was so stressed out. Lioon, an information systems and operations masters student, said losing the $100,000, granted to each of the top 20 winners, wont be as rough if the Gators his No. 1 pick end up winning the championship. The fact that I was even able to come so close to make it to the top 20 going into last Saturday night, Lioon said, was pretty remarkable. Lioon said using statistics but factoring in upsets are his top pieces of advice. At the end of the day, its a crap shoot almost, Lioon said. Ive seen girls win it that havent watched one game all year. Jonathan Arnholz, a 20-year-old UF public relations sophomore and vice president of the Mens Basketball Rowdies, said his the least time on, was doing the best. Its certainly an accomplishment, Arnholz said in response to Lioons bracket, but a lot of luck also goes into it. Lioon said the challenge got harder toward the end of the tournament because the points for each game increased. When it rains, it pours, Lioon said. Everyone reaches a point where their bracket busts, and I hit that wall. Lioon said he posted pictures of proof on his Facebook page and received a lot of enthusiasm and hope Gator almost wins $100K from Warren Buffett MEGAN KELLYAlligator Contributing WriterVeg-heads are celebrating UFs latest vegan victory. UF was voted the Favorite VeganFriendly college in the large school category in a contest by peta2, the youth outreach division of the animal rights group PETA. The results of the competition, which featured 16 large schools and 16 small schools, were released this week. Winners were determined by votes cast on peta2s website. UF received 2,795 votes. It won by fewer than 50 votes against Kent State UniPeta2 has had vegan-friendly competitions in the past, but this ing based, said Kenneth Montville, PETAs college campus coordinator. The vegan report card was a new feature this year. Schools were asked options. The results from the surveys were translated into a grade on the vegan report card. UF received an A on the report card, as did the University of South Florida and Rollins College. These contests are meant to celebrate the schools that are doing a fantastic job providing vegan food to their students, Montville said. Christina Bicknell, a 19-year-old UF public relations sophomore and a peta2 representative for UF, said this victory will help implement changes on campus.

The U.S. Congressional candidate whose involvement in live-action role-playing and online fantasy gaming was recently called into question released another statement Wednesday attributing the controversial comments to someone else. In the statement from Rushs campaign, said he wrote the online comments that insinuated sexual assault under the username Chazz Darling. He said he made the comments in character through a shared account, which had several users. Snyder apologized in the statement for any confusion and embarrassment that the comments caused. Rush, a local attorney and former Alachua County Sheriffs deputy, began drawing criticism after SaintPetersblog published a post calling him out for taking part in supernatural role-playing games. The story was picked up by publications including Vanity Fair and Gawker. SaintPetersblog reported that the comments referenced forced oral sex and cocaine use.

THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffTyler Ritz, a 19-year-old UF aerospace engineering sophomore, watches the History Channels AmeriSILVIA RUEDAAlligator Contributing WriterWendy Trantham doesnt consider herself a TV person, but when the 19-year-old wants to catch up on a show, she does it the old-fashioned way: in front of her television set. Deloitte shows that Trantham, a UF exploratory freshman, is in the minority for her generation. Millennials, the generation represented by ages 14 to 24, spend only 44 percent of their time watching movies and shows using a TV. The rest of the time is spent watching media on a computer, smartphone, tablet or gaming device. Computers lead as device of choice at 32 percent. The study also shows that the older a generation is, the more time it spends watching TV. People part of the generation labeled as matures, ages 67 and older, watch TV 92 percent of the time they want to watch a show or movie. Dennis Frohlich, a third-year UF health communications doctoral student and instructor for The Cultural Impact of Video Games, said the results are not surprising. When it comes to where viewers consume media, theres a generational gap because older people are more likely to stick to what they know, and young people want options, he said. Millennials may also be more inclined to watch movies and shows A cable bill on top of a cellphone bill and other utilities can add up to be a lot for a college student, Frohlich said. In the coming years, online streaming providers will try different things, such as recently releasing series entirely on the web, he said. With an increased interest in alternative ways to consume media, there will continue to be plenty of room for experimentation. Reed Jostes, a Santa Fe College family, youth and community freshman, said he doesnt make it a prioron TV.

When I absolutely have to watch something, I normally go online to do it, he said.Study: Millennials watching less TV NATHAN KINGAlligator Contributing WriterEvery two minutes, someone is sexually assaulted. The statistic from several reports may appear grim, but UF and other agencies in Gainesville have a message to spread: Sexual violence will not be tolerated. This message will be heard loud and clear tonight at 5:30 when UF students meet on the Plaza of the Americas to march against sexual violence. The event, called Take Back the Night, is sponsored by the Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center and various UF organizations to kick off Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Jessie Lazarchik, an Alachua County victim advocate, said this empowering event is a chance to give UF a voice against sexual assault. This event allows everyone to come together and create a positive atmosphere to speak out against sexual violence, Lazarchik said. Rita Lawrence, a GatorWell Health Promotion Services interpersonal violence prevention coordinator, said sexual assault is a silent epidemic. Only two out of 10 victims of sexual assault report it, and half of women who were victims dont even consider what happened to them assault, she said. Jennifer Heard, an Alachua County victim advocate therapist, said effects of sexual assault vary from person to person. The most common connightmares, loss of sense of safety and a distrust with self and others. Heard said educating the public about bystander intervention is key to preventing sexual assault. If you see something, say something, she said. Heard said she encourages victims to report sexual assault incidents in whatever ways they feel comfortable. We are not going to turn our back on you, Heard said. The healing process is uncomfortable and hard, but help is available when you are ready to get through it.Gainesville to take back the night, raise assault awarenessWays to report sexual assault

But he said that having the best of both worlds seemed too good to be true. My roommates asked me, If you had to choose between the $100,000 and the Gators winning, what would you choose? Thats maybe would pick the $100,000, just because I have a lot of student debt to pay off. continue being a vegan-friendly campus, Bicknell said. Vegetarian Allie Jones, a 19-year-old UF business administration freshman, said she was originally worried that a meal plan would leave her stuck with salads. However, she now considers UF vegan-friendly because she never had a problem Gator Dining always had a least two completely vegetarian options every day, plus sandwiches, pastas and salads you could make vegetarian also, Jones said. Caroline Stocks, a 19-year-old UF recreation and event management sophomore, said some of her friends had to stop being vegetarians when they went to other colleges because of limited options. Ive been a vegetarian since I was 6 years old, so I dont know what I would do if I had to go back to eating meat like my friends at different schools, Stocks said. UFs vegetarian-friendly reputation was something that drew Emily Born, a 20-year-old UF English and political science junior, to the school in the Going to a school that sells vegan items all over campus makes my life easier, but it also shows that UF cares about its students needs and, to some extent, a cause that matters a lot to me, Born said. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2014Megan Reeves / Alligator StaffNicole Manugas, an 18-year-old UF neuroscience freshman, studies Wednesday while eating a salad at Designer Greens.

Stephanie Comstock, general manager at The Swamp Restaurant, said shes seen a dramatic increase in the use of smartphones in the 12 years shes been working on and off at the restaurant.

Although she enjoyed wakeboarding recreationally during high school, Anderson said she never competed until she joined the UF team. Last year, she went to the event to connect with fellow student wakeboarders, with no intention to compete.

I know God is here protecting me and all the soldiers, but I have my phone in my hand just hoping it will ring, and it will be my husband, DeHart said. Brooke Conover, whose husband was on base at the time of the shooting, said she found out about it while checking Facebook. She said she called her husband, Staff Sgt.

And after years of local businesses closing, Gainesville store owners are breathing easier. We lost money for a while, said Matthew Turner, owner of Wolfgang boutique at 1127 W. University Ave. We had to really scrape and pay attention to how much we were spending each month. Turner credits the stores survival to his emphasis on customer service. Wolfgang regularly hosts events like cocktail parties, which include complimentashow customer appreciation. Steven Kirn, executive director of UFs David F. Miller Center for Retailing Education and Research, said independent stores thrive by building strong relationships with customers and adapting to their needs. The same things that help stores survive during hard times help them thrive during good times, Kirn said. Persona Vintage Clothing & Costumes, which opened in 1980 and is located at 201 SE Second Place, survived the recent recession by sticking to the eclectic image of the store, said owner Nava Ottenberg. Not all stores suffer during hard economic times, Kirn said, as customers can choose less expensive options. Urban Thread, which has two Gainesville locations, is known for offering popular brands at affordable prices, said owner Lilly Kline. Kirn said the real challenge of opening a store in a college town is building a loyal customer base because student turnover is so high. Although Urban Thread attracts many college students, Kline said customers return after they graduate. We do not just cater to one group, she said. Michelle Lyman, a 22-yearold UF neuroscience senior, said she goes to smaller stores for unique pieces. They tend to have clothes that are more stylish, and not something you would see in a catalog, Lyman said.Local businesses bounce back We lost money for a while.Matthew Turnerowner of Wolfgang

Each week, the cast locks in their choice of who they think is perfect for them. Heres the catch: halves within 10 tries, they split $1 million. Damon Furberg, supervising casting director, said the show came about because of the way people are dating now and how kind of messed up it is. Where people once met a partner through friends, in college, or even at a bar, they are now meeting through Tinder, Facebook, Twitter and other online dating websites, he said. Despite all these outlets connecting us, there is still a challenge to make a genuine connection. Thats where the show comes in, Furberg said.

What I got was an overwhelming response from shirtless bros, UF athletes and older men spitting game at a kitten. They all wanted to get their paws on him. And, 222 matches and some introspection later, Ive come to terms that my cat is just cuter thoughts on why: 1. The intimidation factor: Its easier to talk to a cat than a human, especially when the cat is as cute as mine. Putting a face with a name can be nerve wracking. There are so many doubts that come with swiping: That girl is so hot; shes way out my league. Cats are in everybodys league. Who says no to a cat? No one. 2. My cat is just gorgeous: Probably the most likely theory. Irresistible purr. Silky fur. Pink little button nose. Hes basically a model. He doesnt rack up the Instagram likes for no reason. 3. The mystery of not knowing is desirable: Deep down, theres a human being behind the feline facade. I was genuinely surprised by just how many of the guys wanted to know what I looked like, prodding for Snapchats or my Instagram name. When you dont know what the other person looks like, you can imagine them to be as hot as you want. Its a damn shame there isnt a face behind that wit. Are you as cute as your cat? 4. Its a noncommittal swipe: Swiping yes to a cat, there is absolutely no chance of seeing them on campus. No regrettable encounters at a bar or having to avoid making eye contact in line at Einsteins. Zero awkward. Lets meet in the alley for a White Russian sometime. 5. Cat jokes are easier to make than having an actual conversation: There is so much material to use when talking to a cat, really.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2014 LAUREN ZIKAAvenue WriterFour Lokos, the infamous drink responsible for many memorable yet hard-to-remember nights for partiers, could be taken off shelves. According to Food Safety News website, Four Lokos parent company, Phusion Projects LLC, has halted the production of caffeinated alcoholic drinks and agreed to make changes to its marketing plan. Phusion has been accused of targeting underage drinkers and promoting excessive drinking. With its cheap price, carbonation and 12-percent alcohol content, it is easy to see why a Four Loko is appealing to a younger demographic. Sophia Napoles, a 22-year-old time she had a Four Loko, she only took one sip. Napoles said she is not a fan of the brand and associates it with people seeking to get obnoxiously drunk. The majority of people I know who have drank it have either blacked out, gotten alcohol poisoning, been injured or have been that sloppy kid at the party, she said. Napoles said she thinks it wont take long for another Four Loko concoction to hit the market. But Andrew Moschiano, a 25-year-old UF anthropology senior, said he has already seen similar products. I think Snoop Dogg marketed one called Joose, Moschiano said. Id imagine a gimmicky, similar beverage will be out soon. Four Lokos were something Moschiano said he enjoyed when he was younger, but now he realizes how harmful they are. can be summed up as a blackout in a can, he said. Julia Rae Varnes, a GatorWell health promotions specialist, said there are multiple factors that contribute to the dangers of drinking Four Lokos. Due to the large size and 12-percent alcohol volume, one Four Loko is equivalent to four to six beers. drink, Varnes said. Varnes said she believes Phusion markets this product so heavily to college students due to the misguided concept that drinking in college is normative or expected. drinks masked taste also make it appealing to more inexperienced drinkers, she said.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2014 JACKSON HARTAvenue WriterNoah is an insane movie experience. The two-hour-plus nightmare drama, starring Russell Crowe (Gladiator, Les Miserables) as the titular character and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), is an artful, exhilarating, surreal work that sometimes gets frustratingly bogged down in blockbuster cliches. It changes one of the most iconic stories in the best-selling book of all time, the Bible, into a fever-vision parable for modern human greed and corruption of the Earth. The movie delivers a warning that unless we change our polluting ways, there will be disastrous consequences. In this sense, the movie succeeds. Some of the most moving parts of Noah are the scenes in which nature is shown in all its beauty. A couple of visually stunning sequences one showing all different species of animals streaming onto the ark en masse and another an animated retelling of the beginning of the universe not only entertain but showcase a rare artistic vision. The ending of the movie makes sure we know where Aronofsky, interestingly a self-proclaimed atheist, stands on the conservation of Earth and all its species. However, because this is a modern-day blockbuster, Noah also tries to be a fantasy epic Bible gone Tolkien complete with hand-to-hand combat, magical wise men, giant creatures, ancient prophecies and epic battles. The CGI in this movie is amazing, and Noah reportedly cost about $125 million to make, but I still couldnt shake the feeling that it was unnecessary. tion and the lengths man will go to do what he feels he must. Watching from Gladiator feels like artistic compromise to a greedy studio. Crowe gives a performance pretty standard for him all surly masculinity and wild beard that is enough to satisfy but not to astound. The real standout performance comes from Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) as Naameh, Noahs wife. Connelly is the movies compassionate heart as a desperate, protective mother, and it was her I was rooting for not Noah. Ultimately, Noah overcomes nal cinematic visions in recent years. Though it takes vast liberties with the origin story of Noah and his ark the end product feels more like an original work that happened to also morality of Noah and his dedication to the preservation of life will come I give it 4/5 stars.Blockbuster Noah strays from original story, wows in visuals AP PhotoThis image released by Paramount Pictures shows Russell Crowe in a scene from Noah. The movie THE SINGER/SONGWRITER PAIRS SOMBER LYRICS WITH UPBEAT SOUNDS. CODY SMITHAvenue WriterThe debut album from Danish singer/ songwriter M, No Mythologies to Follow, adds yet another exciting entry to the growing synthpop genre. Comparable to artists like Grimes and Purity Ring, M creates a unique vision accentuated by brilliant proWhile bands like Chvrches juxtapose dark subject matter with cheery instrumentals, M excels in aligning her somber lyricism with appropriately uncanny production. Stand-out song Pilgrim matches lyrics Why do you and I live on and on? with horns one would expect to hear in a hip-hop track. Ms voice, similar to Lana Del Reys, excellently delivers the pain-stricken lyrics with delicate emotion. On XXX 88, the singer spices up the vocals with enough attitude to pull the listener in without potentially alienating her audience. A far cry from the often whiny females of pop radio, M possesses a mature display of vocal manipulation. The one fault of No Mythologies To Follow lies in the often same-sounding tracks. Although most of the album registers, some songs get lost due to their inability to stand separate from one another. The album differentiates after multiple listens, but songs may M succeeds in creating a great addition to the synthpop genre with No Mythologies to Follow. The album not only sets M apart from the competition, but also establishes her M debuts synthpop album GatorAid Leslie Cole is a 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior.

Anonymous I dont think theres a time stamp created by the gods of seduction that says TODAYS THE DAY. You have to decide what youre most comfortable with, and whether the person youre thinking about getting down and dirty with is worth an extra tally on your lets face it long list of wish-you-hadnts. One of my friends has a thing called the three-date rule that she sticks to no matter what. After three separate dates in three separate weeks, she feels she has spent enough time with this guy to give him the cookie. Guys are genetically programmed to not only desire the goods but also do whatever they possibly can to receive them. When a guy takes you on a date, it might very well be used as an attempt to get to know you, but in the long run, its to get to what really matters faster. He pays for your meals and expensive gifts, so in return, youll give him the only gift he actually wants. If you think about it this way, keep the cookie in the jar for as long as your happy place is physically able to so he doesnt reach his endgame too soon. Create a rule for yourself if you think its worth it to stick to a plan each time, but if you need to jump his bones sooner than usual, go for it. Its not your fault hes walking around looking sexy. You have every right to pounce, and you should.

Read the story on page 16. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynShabazz Napier has more AllConference First-Team selections than Scottie Wilbekin. He has more career points than Patric Young and Will Yeguete combined. He had more minutes on the court in just his freshman year than Casey Prather had in nearly three years of action. But most importantly, UConns senior point guard has more national championship rings than any player on Floridas roster. Unfortunately for coach Billy Donovan and the No. 1-seed Gators, Napier is having one of the best postseasons of his fouryear career. He has evolved into an elite guard in this country, as good as anybody out there, Donovan said. Certainly against us he made some really big shots coming down the stretch. In that Dec. 2 matchup in Storrs, Conn., no shot was bigger or more painful for Gators fans than Napiers buzzer-beater that handed Florida its second and most recent loss of the season. and last career buzzer-beater, as well as inspiration for the Gators in at least one late-game scenario during the Southeastern Conference Championship against Kentucky. Since dropping 26 points against Florida, Napier has averaged 18.5 points per contest. In his four tournament games so far, the 6-foot-1 point guard has stepped up his scoring game even more by averaging 23.3 points per contest, which is the most out of any player on any of the Final Four teams. In UConns Elite Eight matchup with Michigan State on Sunled all scorers with 25 points, 17 of which came in the second half.

UF gearing for UConn guard Napier LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickWhen people talk about Connecticut, the attention generally focuses on Shabazz Napier the Huskies leading scorer and one of the most dynamic talents in the nation. But another player on UConn coach Kevin Ollies roster has stepped up in a big way for his team in the postseason. Huskies forward DeAndre Daniels has averaged 17 points on 50 percent shooting and 6.8 rebounds per game during No. 7 seed Connecticuts tournament wins against 10-seed Saint Josephs, 2-seed Villanova, 3-seed Iowa State and 4-seed Michigan State in the East Regional. In those games, he has making 8 of 19 three-point attempts. Daniels broke out in an 81-76 win against Iowa State last Friday in the Sweet 16, scoring 27 points on a 10-of15 shooting clip and grabbing 10 boards. Hes a versatile forward, coach Billy Donovan said. He shoots threes. Hes posting up. Hes long, hes athletic. He can put it on the great stuff with him to put him in situations where he can shoot the ball. He can play out of the post. But hes a guy, I think, has progressively gotten better during the course of the season. Ollie has seen Daniels improve over the past month and has praised the juniors ability as a hybrid four to make the most out of his opOne word that we always talk to him about is touches his touches comes from his activity, Ollie said. Offensive rebound, defensive offensive rebound, taking charge, getting a When he has over eight rebounds, he averages 19 points. That just goes right into the touches. When hes when hes on the court blocking shots, hes going to get his points because hes that talented. Hes 6-foot-9, can play inside, can play out. The biggest thing for him is to bring that energy. When he does that, he plays at another level. Daniels is second on UConn in scoring this year behind Napier, with 13 Huskies forward Daniels thriving in NCAA Tournament ERICA A. HERNANDEZ Alligator Writer @EricaAlysaa Wednesday night for a midweek game against the Seminoles, both teams were hungry for a win. It had been exactly a week since the Gators tasted victory following three consecutive road losses to Tennessee last week. Florida State, on the other hand, was eager to defend a 13-game winning streak and it did. No. 8 FSU (35-4, 12-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) defeated No. 6 UF (31-8, 5-7 Southeastern Conference) 3-2 in eight innings Wednesday night at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. For the fourth time this season, the Gators went into extra inan eight-inning matchup with a loss. The last time Florida lost at least four games in a row was in 2011 when it dropped six straight contests from March 25-April 3.
