A space shuttle launched from the Kennedy Space Center on Friday. It carried a payload with the project of Junya Zhang, a post-doctorate student, and Mark Settles, a professor in the horticultural sciences department. The 24 bags containing algae, water and fertilizer will stay on the International Space Station for a monthlong experiment testing changes in genetic structure in response to the conditions of space. Algae is being used because it is easy to grow, requiring less space and light than traditional crops. The strain of algae being used is Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii, the most studied algae type and the easiest to genetically manipulate.

Hiaasen worked at The Baltimore Sun for the next 15 years after leaving The Palm Beach Post, eventually ending up at the Capital Gazette in 2010. Jon Morgan, former editor at The Baltimore Sun, described Hiaasen as of humor and always looking out for others. His attitude was always very positive even in the dark days of buyouts and downsizing. He just loved what he was doing, Morgan said. You dont meet many people like that in the course of your life. Hiaasen loved the craft of writing overlooked stories of human interest, Morgan and Ovalle said. They both agreed one of their favorite pieces Hiaasen wrote involved his curiosity about a Korean couple he saw on his way to lunch. They were collecting nuts from a fallen tree. While its an observation most people would ignore, Hiaasen decided to research the nut and track the couple down. He ended up spinning it into a fun, quirky story about the delicacy known as the ginkgo nut within Asian culture. We all go to lunch and we dont even notice whats going on around us, Ovalle said. (Rob) just had a real eye for everything going on around him. Morgan said his fondest memory of working with Hiaasen involved his brother, Carl Hiaasen. He noted how Carl Hiaasen was always used to tease Robert about how his brother was more famous than he was. Morgan said he went up to Carl immediately asked him, Whats it like having Robert Hiaasen as a brother? Carl just looked at me blankly, but Rob immediately got the joke and doubled over in laughter, Morgan said. Thats the kind of self-defacing joke you could pull on Rob. Outside of journalism, Ovalle said Hiaasen loved being outdoors and spending time with his wife and two children. He also studied the art of writing outside of the newsroom, working as a journalism lecturer at the University of Maryland. Ovalle said Hiaasen understood the lethal consequences journalism has had over time, writing a lengthy feature story in 2006 about a memorial that honored journalists killed on the job. Ovalle said Hiaasens family is in situation surreal and incomprehensible. Ovalle and Morgan said Hiaasen will leave behind a fond memory of positivity and inspiration within journalism. I suspect there will be journalists whose lives he touched and careers he touched going forward, and thats a proud legacy we can all be so lucky (to know), Morgan said. @danacassidy_ firstname.lastname@example.orgHIAASEN, from pg. 1His attitude was always very positive One batch of algae will stay on Earth at NASAs testing facilities as a control group while the other grows in space.

The algae is nutritious, provides building materials and consumes carbon dioxide. It contains key nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, protein and antioxidants, Settles said. However, it proform, which Settles said is being worked on. Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii also can be used to make plastics. Algae responds to stress by producing and storing oil for food in case of future stressors. Settles said the oil can be extracted and used to build materials aboard a spacecraft. Another issue of space travel is the amount of carbon dioxide on the ISS, which is 10 times higher than on Earth. This limits the astronauts physical activity. Algae combats this problem by consuming carbon dioxide. The project is being funded by the Florida Space Research Institute and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space. Settles said the FSRI awarded them $135,000 and CASIS is paying for the payload integration, loading the bags into the space shuttle for safe travel. Settles did not know how much the integration will cost at the time of the interview.

TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2018 ALLIGATOR 5By Angela DiMicheleAlligator Staff Writer Fear Facers is a different kind of summer camp where, instead of playing kickball with normal bases, kids get a home run by squishing into pools of spaghetti, chocolate syrup and fake vomit. Fear Facers Summer Camp, organized by UFs Center for OCD, Anxiety & Related Disorders (COARD), is for children ranging from ages 7 to 15 with phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. The camp is an alternative way for children to receive therapy and challenge themselves to overcome daily struggles. Last year, the program had 11 campers. session at Kanapaha Veterans Memorial Park on May 18. The second session will run from July 30 to August 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The increase in participants allowed UF Health to use Fear Facers for follow-up research in an ongoing study in OCD and anxiety, according to Dr. Joseph McNamara. McNamara, clinical director of Fear Facers, said the new research component of the camp tracks how effectively the treatments are for kids and how effectively the counselors are trained in treating them. He said activities at the camp imitate what the kids fears look like and how to overcome them. Weve had an extensive program for treating OCD for over 20 years at the University of Florida, McNamara said. But now, rather than just a therapy session with somebody every day, were getting the therapy session every day here, but then the children are here for another six hours after that where we can do fun things that are also really good challenges for them. Each persons anxieties manifest in unique ways, and counselors use group activities as well as individual therapy sessions to help social anxiety, some fear spiders or separation from loved ones, some struggle with counting while others have concerns with symmetry, McNamara said. Robyn Nelson, assistant administrative director of COARD, said campers attend individual therapy sessions each morning where they discuss fears and anxieties with their therapist. Therapists then help kids face these fears in activities throughout the week. We do some group sessions, so that the kids get to hear what each other are struggling with, so they can provide that encouragement they need to just keep going, Nelson said. It also helps them to see their counselor and therapist in a different way and to see them outside Lacie Lazaroe, Fear Facers outreach director and therapist, said the second annual Fear Facers is creating possible alternatives to traditional methods of anxiety and OCD treatment for health care providers, researchers and clinicians. The school year is really hectic for kids, Lazaroe said. So at camp, during the summer, maybe theyre more free, and they have time to be able to engage in this kind of stuff. I think its good to come up with alternative modes of treatment delivery. Not only do the kids play hot potato with slime and have fake vomit water-balloon plete assignments at home to practice what they have learned about unhealthy anxieties and are prepared for future situations. I can not be sure of something, but Im going to put in the effort. And it may or may not work out right, but Im putting in the effort and accepting some of that unknown, McNamara said on behalf of the kids. Because so many different things are unknown in life. @angdimi email@example.comSummer camp helps kids face fears, aids UF researchersBy Kelly HayesAlligator Contributing WriterNavigating the county court system new program from Alachua County aims to change that. The online program TurboCourt, which has been in the works for months, is now available on the county clerks website. This system will provide guidance to pro se litigants, or people who represent themselves in court, said Alachua County Clerk of Court J. K. Jess Irby. Any individual who has a need for tion where they cannot afford, or choose to not have an attorney, this could help them in their effort to get access to justice, Irby said. TurboCourt, which works a lot like TurboTax, can be used by pro se litigants in civil cases including divorce, domestic violence, small claims and eviction cases, Irby said. Its as simple as selecting a case type then being guided through a series of questions, Irby said. From there, it will create a For Jennifer M. Titus, an attorney with Peaceful Paths Domestic Abuse Network, TurboCourt is one way citizens can access the court system, but not the only way. We have a Peaceful Paths advocate in with completion also, Titus said. Its just another means to access the court system, theres no right or wrong way to do it. The program, which was made in contract with a third-party vendor, will cost the county $7,500 a year to use, Irby said. User ing for domestic violence cases, which are free. Having an attorney is hard to beat but for many folks its just unattainable, so were doing our best trying to help people out here, Irby said.

By Dana CassidyAlligator Staff WriterResearchers at UF have developed a wireless mouthguard that measures a persons health components as they exercise. The mouthguard, called the things device. The internet of things is how a device can remotely gather data and send them to phones or computers by Bluetooth, said UF associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and H3 developer Yong Ku Y.K. Yoon. Yoon said he decided to name it H3 after the three aspects of the body it measures: cally, the H3 detects things like bodily impacts, movement, pulse and body temperature. This sports mouthguard will give you the automatic detection and feedback that will tell you if you need to take a rest or drink Gatorade, Yoon said. The H3 was made by inserting a chip in an athletic mouthguard. Yoon said it has 11 sensors, an accelerometer, a heart rate monitor and gyroscope. Its really all-encompassing, said UF doctoral student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and H3 developer Todd Schumann. But, he said, theres room for (the H3) to evolve. Yoon and Schumann said the H3 is a prototype that took more than six months to develop. Schumann said theyve only completed personal testing like wearing it while running on a treadmill. They are looking for an opportunity to do testing on a larger scale, like in UF sports. They plan on releasing the H3 to the public around one year from now, selling a generic model for $500-$700 and selling price. Yoon plans on evolving the H3 to be more user-friendly with more features. He hopes to a single tooth and add a body to detect diseases like HIV and monitor blood sugar. Schumann said his main goal is to have people who dont have access to professionals use the H3. (Non-professional athletes) traditionally dont have all the trainers sitting around watching their every move, Schumann said. This would be a device that helps them keep a look on their health while exercising. @danacassidy_ firstname.lastname@example.orgUF researchers develop mouthguard prototype to monitor athletes vital signs By Ashley MirtylAlligator Contributing WriterWith June 21 marking the beginning of summer, Gainesvilles streets crumble in the heat. The crater-like cavities of automotive annihilation we call potholes have made their way onto the streets of Gainesville, leaving motorists like Justin Green $259.56 poorer. Green, a Gainesville resident, fell victim to the roadway ruts when jagged asphalt teeth sunk into one of his 2017 Toyota Camrys tires. Its honestly like playing Mario Kart out here, Green said.

Potholes are created when rain seeps into asphalt roads develop weak spots and collapse. In colder climates, frozen water that has thawed can cause the asphalt to rise. Skinner said Gainesville is lucky not to have freezing temperatures, or the potholes would be worse. However, the rainy weather presents a different Skinner said. If reported promptly, road agencies can take as few as four hours to patch holes with asphalt.

Editorial Column Please choose your words carefully Remember those with chronic illness this summerWhat comes to mind when you think of summer? Is it sunrises and sunsets? Is it chilling in a hammock between Summer classes? Is it beach days and vacations? Is it life-changing journeys for internships and invaluable learning experiences? Is it time to relax or learn a new skill? Its been none of these things for me. For me, summer is a battle between mind and body. Its dozens upon dozens of appointments, tests, medication changes or even operations. Its everything I want and dont want at the same time. I want to feel better, and this has to be done. But its not what I want to actually be doing with my time. I want to be normal, not chronically sick, tired, in pain, a burden and doing the opposite of what I want. I want to be at an internship and get through my summer class without feeling like every task is a maraEven writing has become hard. I will forget words midsentence and become stuck. items on a bucket list, not building a list of medications and diagnoses. I want to be making progress toward my dream job, but I feel like Im not. I want to not feel guilty for being sick or not sick enough for societys standards. No one can see whats happening on the inside. I want to not have doctors listen to my story and tell me I cant or show that theyre not listening. and its still being questioned by other doctors, leading to more tests and more cycles of guilt and doubt. More hours of feeling crazy or not good enough. Like Im making things up even though I live with the pain and symptoms every day. Its hearing professors or doctors tell me I cant do what Ive always wanted. I never realized my one chronic autoimmune condition would complicate things for the rest of my life. That I would wake up one day and never feel better. That having one condition spawns other issues. I feel alone and different. Unheard. Abandoned by certain friends who didnt understand why I couldnt make plans or by doctors who refused to believe me until a parent was in the room. Or by professors in the past who questioned my medical documentation or told me to take a class when Im not sick and would have the potential of not missing a lot of class days. I wont ever not be sick. I never know what symptoms are going to meet me in the morning. Theres nothing I want more than to be in class every single day. Society and health care need to change, as do the thoughts that echo in my head reiterating my worst fears and chanting the words doctors have told me: You cant do this, Just put on some clothes and go to class or Your issue is likely psychological in nature. I couldnt go to school if it werent for the Disability Resource Center at UF. Inclusion is more than a check mark or hitting certain benchmarks.

Were running it again today as this is the ing this editorial, youve probably already seen what were talking about. If you havent, its on page one. Four journalists and a sales assistant were indiscriminately land, on Thursday afternoon. They did not die, nor were they shot and killed. They were murdered. Words matter.

Good journalism rarely leaves all parties involved happy. We hope that journalists wont back down over the murder of our own.

The term fake news is not a new concept, but it has seen an incredible spike in usage in the last two years. The phrase enemy of the people is not a new concept, but it has been the rallying cry of the misinformed. As incredulous as the claims are, they use powerful words. Fake. Enemy.

TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7 TM rfn tbtrb trr A readers comment got me thinking about what it means to have individual freedom. It made me consider why I feel comfortable harshly criticizing the country I love so much. Heres my reply, point-by-point. The main thrust of it is we cant afford to think were on top of the world. We are a great country, but we got here through constant improvement, not arrogant complacency. I love our Constitution. I encourage everyone reading this column (if you havent already done so) to also read the Federalist Papers; they will give you an appreciation of the thinking that went into our countrys initial framestrives for freedoms. Those papers tell us why we need a Constitution as well as a federal government. The Bill of Rights is part of that. It tells every American their freedoms of speech, religion and assembly are inalienable. The Constitution, however, is not perfect its a document that has required constant amendments throughout history precisely because it did not previously afford the individual freedoms we all love (see, in pertinent Amendments 13, 14, 15, 21, 23 and 24). Moreover, the Bill of Rights, as former President James Madison put it in Federalist 48, is merely a parchment barrier to having those rights taken which government can take away the freedoms the catches and stops in the political mechanism by dint of separation of powers and popular elections that is the better protector. We must be careful not to love the Constitutions promises so fondly as to blind ourselves to real-world threats to our freedom. will not stop a tyrant. There are better ways to prevent us from ending up like Russia, like education. Public education is not provided for in the Constitution, nor is it uniquely American. In fact, America is behind many other countries in public education. It is much more ingrained in the cultures of other countries, like Cuba, to educate their children. Cubas literacy rate is higher than ours, and contrary to popular belief, Cuba is not a hellhole. There are teachers and students on the currency of Italy and not on ours. This is why it is so hard to say America affords the best civic culture. But even saying we have the best individual freedoms is a bit misguided. freedom to mean a constitutional freedom too narrowly. This is why, way back in 1941, former President Franklin Roosevelt declared that every American should not only be free to speak and worship as they wish but also be free from want and free from fear. The U.S. Constitution, while indeed the longest operating, is neither exceptional nor uniquely provides a basis for better culture. Ill say it loud and proud. That doesnt mean it isnt great. That doesnt mean I dont love this country as much as any other American. It certainly doesnt mean Russia or China or Cuba have a better culture than we do. It just means we should be careful before saying Were the best. Countries dont exist on a spectrum from freer to less free. The choice isnt between American culture or Shariah. Loving our country is about understanding that there is much work to be done, and, often, the smart thing to do is look to emulate the good examples in other cultures. The choice is between adapting or fading into the graveyard of once-great countries. Stephan Chamberlin is a UF political science junior. His column comes out Tuesday and Thursday.A follow-up about freedomColumn The second decade of this millennium has brought the hyper-digitization of almost every aspect of our lives: transportation, food, driving and photo sharing. Dating is no different. More people are meeting via the internet than ever before. Generation Z will be the generation of online relationships. Romantic movies and our own idealistic conceptions of love convince us that we dont want this, we want to meet by coincidence. We want to meet in elevators, at weddings or reconnect with a childhood friend. A spark of destiny that we never see coming, but our 21st century way of life shows that isnt realistic. The truth is we like meeting people online, and were getting really good at it. According to Pew Research, 57 percent of teens have made a friend online. Seventyfour percent of all internet users have used the internet for romantic reasons. Sixty-three million Americans say they know someone who has met their partner online. Three million married Americans met their spouse online. Our hearts say destiny but the research says match.com The formulaic union of two candidates for marriage is an ancient concept. Online dating has returned us to a more calculated and intentional form of union, perhaps ending the nearly hundred-year detour. In some cultures, women were currency; in others, they were an active and willing participant. Eastern cultures still participate in organized, family-involved mediation. Screening (politics, education and beliefs). Many relationships now start with a direct message. The internet allows users to quickly summarize a person and consider whether we like them. Having extra information about a person immediately upon meeting could end a doomed relationship before it even starts. When you meet online, more baggage is immediately on the table. People can navigate tential deal-breakers more quickly. In the same way the internet can end potentially bad relationships, it can be a catalyst for good ones. By reading someones thoughts, you can gain an attraction to someone we otherwise wouldnt have considered based on appearance alone. To consider how we meet partners, we must consider our intentions. Do Americans care about marriage anymore? Regardless of your stance, the answer to this question affects what we look for in a companion. The decline in marriages in the U.S. (51 percent changed what dating even means. For some, internet dating habits have ushered in a new age of hookup culture. Going on formal dates is less common, and young people are opting for a casual hang-out instead. Like all technology, online dating and social media are a tool. The tool is neutral but the way its used isnt. The way we behave from their online persona and can create an unsafe situation. The difference between the internet and real life is access. Social media give us more access to potential partners than before. When you can look through people like a catalog, you can start to view them as menu items rather than real people. In the hands of someone who is morally empty, this can be dangerous. Apps like Tinder can accelerate the process for predators to take advantage of others. Online matchmaking might not make for a dreamy story to tell your children, but it is quickly becoming our reality. Layla Soboh is a UF advertising junior.

TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2018 ALLIGATOR 9 By Dana CassidyAlligator Staff WriterNewly discovered evidence involving asteroids and meteorites may provide a better understanding of where they come from and how they helped shape Earth. About 85 percent of 200,000 asteroids in the inner asteroid belt Earths main source of meteorites originate from about six small planets broken up by collisions, said UF emeritus professor ings were published Monday in Nature Astronomy. This approach revealed a new aspect of the asteroid belt that people have not realized before, Dermott said. Its alnobody else has seen. Dermott said the study was conducted by collecting 20 years worth of data from characteristics of the asteroids used in the study. Dermott and the researchers in his team used statistical analysis to determine whether big and little asteroids have different orbits. The results of the study showed the size of the asteroid determines the type of orbit it has, Dermott said. The researchdifferent and where they came from and how asteroids are formed. Professor and chairman of the UF Department of Astronomy Charles Telasco said he thought this was an outstanding study. Telasco said asteroids have always been thought to be bits and pieces of the solar system that never went on to form planets. He explained how the study showed that this isnt the case at all and reveals that there simply werent many remnants. Were trying to understand how planets form in our and other solar systems, Telasco said. (This study) tells us its thought before. study will help us better comprehend the evolutionary history of asteroids and their formations. He also hopes the evidence will help us to understand how planets were formed. Dermott plans to continue studying asteroids and meteorites to further understand planetary orbits and how they can change. I think its a very big step that weve narrowed down the source of meteorites to a few known objects now, Dermott said. @danacassidy_ firstname.lastname@example.orgBy Charles FenwickAlligator Contributing WriterThe Florida Museum of Natural History will be showing a free bat-themed movie every Friday in July. cussion at 7 p.m., and a different movie will play each week, said Tiffany Ireland, educator at the Florida Museum.

And Im actually happy with each of their landing spots, especially George, which (probably) has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a Thunder fan. The news is also really good for fans who are tired of the Warriors and Cavaliers playing each other in the Finals every year. Cleveland probably wont make the playoffs anytime soon, which sets up the stage for a fresh matchup of the Eastern Conferences top teams, the Celtics and 76ers. It was nice to see the 2018 free agenin Georges return to Oklahoma City, then All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins joined the Golden State Warriors on a one year, $5.3 million deal. Cousins earned $18 million with New Orleans last season. He's still recovering from a torn achilles he suffered on the closing seconds of a Jan. 26 win over Houston. His impact will be felt more so the season after next, when the Warriors will surely be unable to afford a healthy Cousins, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green at the same time. It appears Cousins is insurance in case one of the Warriors core, presumably Thompson or Green, bolts for a larger role on another team. Many thought that George, who has been open about his long time dreams of playing for his hometown Lakers, would follow that storybook path to southern California with James to create the newest super team. What actually happened is something even better. Instead of adding just Los Angeles to the list of legitimate threats to compete for the 2019 NBA Finals, we can I'm starting to like the newlook NBAHuang Story Short Andrew HuangTwitter: @AndrewJHuangSEE COLUMN, PAGE 16 BASEBALLBy Chris OBrien Sports WriterDespite ending with a 5-2 loss to Arkansas at the College World Series on June 22, the Florida Gators 2018 season shouldnt be overshadowed by the teams failure to repeat as national champions. cord, winning all but one of its inconference series en route to an SEC regular-season title.

This means the early short list of title contenders now reads Golden State, Houston, Boston, Philadelphia and now the Lakers and the Thunder six different cities with a realistic shot at bringing home a championship next season. As for the more crowded top of the Western Conference, annual favorite Golden States became less certain. Its unclear at this point who will join LeBron in Los Angeles since George, the previous frontrunner for that No. 2 spot next to James, has now committed to a four-year, $137 million deal with the Thunder. It is clear that the Lakers are more than capable of signing and an A-list of free agents in 2019, including the Spurs Kawhi Leonard as well as Golden State guard Klay Thompson and Minnesota big man KarlAnthony Towns. Like George, James new deal is for four years, meaning the Lakers can afford to build their roster over the next couple of years. The Thunder looked like the best team in basketball for stretches last season, and with George back, they have a chance to perfect that formula. The NBAs parity problem The future is as bright as it is competitive. Most importantly, my favorite team has a chance to be absolutely great. Andrew Huang is a sports writer.

Instead, this team should be remembered for Indias hitting streak. Or Singers 12-3 season. Or the nine-game winning streak. Or never going below No. 2 in the national rankings. Or, most importantly, several of its members getting drafted to different MLB teams. India, Singer and Kowar went in Gators in later rounds.
