We Inform. You Decide. VOLUME 105 ISSUE 82 THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida Todayvisit page 8 NEW YORK A former porn actress who exchanged emails and messages over Twitter with Rep. Anthony Weiner said Wednesday that he asked her to lie about their interactions, while a growing chorus of lawmakers pressed for his resignation as the scandal enveloping the congressman enters its third week. Weiner has told friends he wanted to speak with his pregnant wife, Huma Abedin, before deciding whether to resign. She returned to Washington early Wednesday from a trip to Africa with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Nightclub dancer Ginger Lee is the latest in a series of women who said they received sexually charged messages from the seven-term congressman. The scandal began when Weiner posted a picture of his underwear-clad crotch on Twitter, then lied about it and said his account was hacked.

Today at 8 p.m., Taco Bell will close its location at the Reitz Mike Mironack, the Unions director of operations, said the decision was made between the Taco Bell franchise and Gator why. The manager of Taco Bell was also not allowed to say why the restaurant was closing; she could only say it would not be around for Summer B. Calls and emails to Gator Dining were not immediately returned. The loss of the campus Taco Bell means students will not be able to get a meal on campus for less than $1. Whether it was a Cheese Roll-Up for 89 cents or a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito for 99 cents, Taco Bell has always been a cheap alternative for students on a budget. The cheapest meal available in the Reitz Union will now be a slice of cheese pizza from Papa Johns for $2.50. The Reitz Union has no current plans for a new business to move into the Taco Bell space, Mironack said. We are not 100 percent sure how we are going to use the space at this point, Mironack said.

Scott Fox, director of Transportation and Parking Services, describes the department as more like a business than a department of the university, because it creates its own revenue and does not receive revenue from the state, university or student tuition. Its revenue depends on decal cial events, meter parking and other sources. This past year the net decrease of the departments revenue was has cut some of it expenses by deferring some non-essential projects, such as bus shelter construction.

By DEVANEY VAZQUEZAlligator Contributing Writer Jennifer Aldrich and Jon MacAllister say the Internet helped them start a promising relationship. It also helped them start a promising business. Midnight Cookies is a delivery service that delivers freshly baked, made-to-order cookies, straight from the oven to your door step, the website says. The small business is located inside of California Chicken Grill at 2022 SW 34th St., but Midnight Cookies is an entirely separate business with different staff and drivers. Its niche delivery market mainly targets college students. It also gets a lot of walk-in business from California Chicken Grill customers who notice the desk in the back cor ner. We get a lot of the late-night, drunk crowd who just want desserts and dont want to drive yet, Aldrich said. The two owners work 40 to 80 hours a week, stay open seven days a week and have a nocturnal working schedule. For the small shops summer schedule, business opens every day at 7 p.m. and closes at 1:30 a.m Monday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, the business closes at 2 a.m. and 1 a.m on Sundays. Cookies are $1.29 each and a minimum of six must be ordered for delivery. After tax is added, the minimum price for delivery is $8 and there is a $1 charge for orders under $12. The business has earned itself some loyal fans. The amazing thing about this business is that every time they deliver, the cookies are still warm, Cynthia Rodriguez said. Its as if I had taken them out of the oven myself. But who am I kidding? I cant bake that good. Rodriguez, an undergraduate biology major at UF, likes almost every status update and comment on the Midnight Cookies fan page on Facebook. She describes herself as daring and said she loves to try all the new crazy cookies they have. Midnight Cookies is proud of their crazy creations. Their newest creation is the maple-bacon cookie, Aldrich said. The idea was inspired by the Dennys bacon sundae, she said. This cookie business had unusual beginnings. The two met on the website OKCupid, where Aldrich took interest in MacAllisters roles in high school musicals. MacAllister was a full-time student at UF before being academically dismissed and transferring to Santa Fe College. He worked 40 to 60 hours a week at California Chicken Grill. During this time, Aldrich made the move to Gainesville to be with him. because she didnt know anyone, so she turned to baking. MacAllister, the creative one of the two, would put new ingredients in his wifes recipes. Some crushed-up Oreo cookies later, the famous cookies-and-cream cookie was born. and is close to celebrating its one-year anniversary. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011Max Reed / Alligator StaffJennifer Aldrich, owner of Midnight Cookies, poses with a Cookie Monster mascot and an assortment of gourmet cookies at 2022 SW 34th St. Wednesday night. LOCALFor those with late-night munchies, cookie service offers cure By ESTEE BECKAlligator Writer County Commissioner Rodney Long, who announced his retirement in an email Monday morning, said he will continue to serve the Gainesville and Alachua County community from his private sector. Its time to leave while Im at the top of my game, said Long, as he chronicled his 22ment speech Wednesday morning to a crowd of almost 80. He reminisced about his career milestones including founding the Martin Luther King Jr. Commission of Florida, serving as president of the Florida Association of Counties and spear heading the Plan East Gainesville project. He also joked about his pitfalls, remember after his 1988 election. You wanted to be a trail blazer, Long recalled, so, blaze the trail. Smiles, nods and laughs in the audience followed each of Longs statements. Tears McGraw, a professional and personal friend of Longs. The timing is perfect, she said of Longs decision to retire. McGraw said Long played a large role in her life as a mentor, guiding her professional career, and that hes left an even bigger impact on the community. Long said his community involvement wont stop. He has plans to continue projects in his areas of concern, such as developing and improving east Gainesville, reducing poverty and homelessness and providing education for at-risk youth. It was 1988 when Longs career as a public was re-elected in 1991, and after much concommissioner later that year. the Alachua County Commission, making him Gainesville City Commission and the Alachua County Board of Commissioners. Long also announced in his retirement email that state Rep. Charles S. Chuck Chestnut IV, DGainesville, will seek Longs District 5 seat on the County Commission.

Peter Wolf, a spokesman for the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, said Gainesville reached a high of 99 degrees Tuesday. By Wednesday at 4 p.m., it hit the record high. Typically, July and August are the most common months for record-breaking numbers, Wolf said. Records are about a 100, 102, he said, so it can get this hot, but [its] a bit unusual this early. The temperatures will cool down slightly over the weekend, he said. The highest recorded temperature for Gainesville was 103 degrees in August 1915. With such hot temperatures, exercising and spending time outdoors could lead to dehydration if people dont take precautions. Shannon Kirkpatrick, health promotion specialist at GatorWell Health Services, said people should drink about eights cups of water a day to maintain healthy and hydrated during the summer heat. Some signs of mild dehydration are thirst, fatigue and loss of appetite. Drinking water could aid these symptoms, Kirkpatrick said, but for a person who has been exercising outdoors, sport energy drinks like Gatorade work best.

Proposed in 2010, the program is a collaboration of the Colleges of Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Journalism and Communications, and Engineering. Other campus agencies, like Student Affairs and the Smathers Libraries, are joining in an effort to boost campus creativity. Live performances and unique academic opportunities will also be part of the program. We are hoping that momentum car ries through to the fall and spring, said Andy Howard, manager of marketing and alumni affairs at the College of Fine Arts. At its core, Creative B is a promotional effort as opposed to a curriculum track. The program is designed to encour age students to enroll in courses bridging the gap between left and right brain activity. Classes such as Local Acts: Performance and Engagement, in which students watch acts all over the city of Gainesville. Another feature of the Creative B program is the Swamp Dance Fest, which is putting Gainesville on the cultural map, according to Neta Pulvermacher, a UF dance professor. She directs this semester-long workshop, which is open to both beginners and expert ballerinas.Campus program to debut in Summer B On Campu s

The Reitz Union currently has no plans for the spacefrequently. Stewart likes the convenience of having one in Reitz Union as opposed to taking the hike down University Avenue to get his favorite item, the Crunchwrap Surpreme. He has watched the inexpensive food options slowly vanish from UFs campus. I used to go to Wendys, and that closed down too, he said. Theres not really anymore cheap food around here now. Janelle Guzman, a UF wildlife ecology junior, said she doesnt eat much at Taco Bell but was surprised to hear that it was closing. I never thought Id see the day, she said. Its been there ever since Ive been to UF, so I never really thought it would close. gineering student, was also shocked to hear that Taco Bell would no longer be a part of campus life. Its really surprising, he said. On my way to the bus stop, its usually packed, especially around lunch time. Peterside said he ate there because of the cheap food. If something more expensive goes there, Ill be sad, he said. TACO, from page 1 By ESTEE BECK Alligator Writer Faculty, staff and students at UF are being reminded by the university to monitor their social media activity at work, school and home. man Resources released a document Monday outlining federal, state and university regulations relevant to social media use. Social media includes Facebook, Twitter, blogs, YouTube, Flickr, text messages and other, less popular platforms, according to the document, which has been more than one year in the making. If the use of social media outside of work represents an individual as a member of the university community, the guidelines apply. If social media are used to share opinions and activities unassociated with the university, such conditions must be clearly indicated. Janine Sikes, director of UF public affairs, said the initial concern was the accidental release of patient information or student and applicant records via social media, which would violate both legal and ethical standards. She said the human resources department pooled together existing regulations into one docues social media use. Essentially, its a reminder of best practices, Sikes said. This is what we expect. If any guidelines are violated, no further repercussions will be carried out other than those that already exist under federal, state or university regulation. Norman Lewis, a professor for the College of Journalism and Communications, is a social media user. He has a Twitter account, a blog and a personal website. Though he says he always views himself as a representative of his employer, a protection of the boundaries between personal and public life is important. Social media is a means to an end, not an end in itself, Lewis said.

When in Rome, screw up as they doWeve been told that history repeats itself. We study history to learn from humanitys past. We try to build on its triumphs and never repeat its failures. Many empires have had their time in the sun: the Egyptians, Mongols, Chinese, British, Incas and the list goes on. For the United States, the most relevant history to study comes from Rome. The parallels between our country and Rome are striking, from the very beginning to our current predicament. Both were grounded in agrarianism in their respective infancies. Both governments were based on mixed constitutions, a blend of democracy, aristocracy and monarchy. We Superbus. Both lands expanded greatly in a short amount of time, but more importantly, both were not initially hellbent on empire building. Eventually both were pulled onto the international stage ing Carthage, and a sleepy United States rose to eminence following World War I. Afterward, both used their militar ies to forge an empire. Rome grew to engulf the rim of the practically everywhere. Ultimately, Rome began to deteriorate. Roman writers criticized their societys moral decay, reminding me of a modern conservative critique of our society. Emperors even enacted legislation to regulate morality. This should ring a bell! Think about Republican stances on abor tion, gay marriage and prayer in school. The Roman populace became enamored with bread and circuses. Emperors viewed games at the coliseum, and the daily bread was doled as a way to prevent the poor from revolting. Is this analogous to us? Are we content when glued to American Idol or the Super Bowl? According to ABC News, a record number of Americans received food stamps this year. Moreover, the ruling class of Rome became fat and rich at the expense of their people. They began to live opulent lives. Ring another bell? According to Fox News, the number of government limos has almost tripled since 2000. Decadence? Absolutely. Late Rome also experienced economic troubles. Upper-class Romans hoarded their money, tightening the money supply and choking the economy. Compare that to American businesses currently sitting on trillions of dollars and not investing. Consistent trade Lastly, Rome was overextended militarily before its coldefend its borders was herculean. Similarly, we spend about as much as the rest of the world combined on our military, budget. The parallels between late Rome and current America are poignant, especially because they are so glaring yet nobody cares. We must stop sitting around. Edward Murrow said, A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves. ing him or her. Attend a political protest to make your voice heard. Vote for common-sense, honest candidates. Write for a newspaper about your passions. You could even do someeither try to be the positive change or wait for it to come knocking on our doors. The themes of Romes decline are also evident in the decline of other empires. If we dont want the sun to set on us, we ought to make some adjustments.

THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Im about to begin a journey into a jungle. This isnt your typical jungle. Here, habitats range from indeterminate bars to packed apartments. Sustenance is in the form of ethanol. The male animals are characterized by Polos, reversed hats and the use of the word bro. Its dangerous out here, so I need a companion. Will you join me? Yes? Then lets commence our journey through the cultural mecca known as Gainesville. First stop: midtown. No, today isnt New Years Eve; this is the ordinary drunken hysteria of this locale. Yes, that guy is throwing up. Those dolled-up patrons on the sidewalk ahead? should enter Standard Bar A, Standard Bar B or Standard Bar C. Second stop: downtown. The corner liquor store is attracting a lot of business. Yes, that guy is also throwing up. Wow, he looks bad. It must be his birthday. Actually, lets stop here. Weve seen enough. Youre disappointed, you say? Well, weve seen the best Gainesville has to offer at least of whats outwardly presented. What more do you want? If youd like, we can go to the Hippodrome State Theatre and watch Suds in the company of middle-aged women. No? Well, then our journey is complete. Thank you for the company, my new friend. Its been fun. Wait, I know what youre thinking: Surely Gainesville has more to offer. We are surrounded by Floridas young intelligentsia some of the brightest young minds in the world. Surely there is more to this city? There has to be! Ah, I expected nothing less from you, an astute, educated reader. BYoure right. Gainesville is a typical college town in that it has exceeding potential and promise. It can offer so much. And it does to an extent. I say to an extent because although much of this potential is realized, it is covertly veiled by the trademarked, attention-grabbing antics that SEC schools are known for. It is not all fun and games or sometimes it is. Impressionable, new undergraduates play the hands theyre dealt and use UF for its intrinsic purpose: to party, drink and do the bare But if we look past this facile perception of our diverse community and look deeper, we can see that something beautiful is hidden. We see smart, motivated people pursuing meaningful ambitions. Less exposed are the thespians in the community who put on moving plays after weeks of grueling practice, the scientists and the individuals involved in countless organizations. Less exposed are the diverse, unique stories and inspiring, boundless goals of the 50,000-plus students in this seemingly one-dimensional town. There are incredible people waiting to be met and waiting to meet you. If you want to see more, if you want to do more, if you want to live more reach out to someone. So long for now, my friend. I look forward to seeing you in the jungle. Abdul Zalikha is an microbiology junior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.Yes, besides boozing, theres actually more to our townColumn Abdul Our tuition is about to increase again. Our university is facing a budget crisis again. And the Board of Trustees has approved yet another policy that will make UF less accessible to working students. At the June 10 Trustees meeting, every member of the board voted to increase student tuition by 15 percent in the coming year. Facing an economic crisis with no end in sight and a slew of attacks on education coming from all sides, students are beginning to ucation in Florida is a multi-front battle. Second, we cant count on anyone but ourselves In the past legislative session, the rightwing state legislature and our extremist Gov. Rick Scott decided to balance the state budget on the backs of students and faculty. Just a month later, the Trustees and Student Body President Ben Meyers agreed to throw on a bit more weight by voting to increase student tuition by 15 percent. Tuesdays issue of the Alligator featured an article covering the 15 percent tuition increase, an opinion piece written by President Meyers explaining his vote in favor of increased tuition and an editorial defending tuition hikes. It wasnt the presentation of the arguments that bothered me, especially since Ive been on the receiving end of one-sided news coverage before. Instead, I was disturbed that neither of the two largest representatives of the Student Body the student newspaper and the Student Body President were willing to stand up to this new wave of attacks on public education. Students need to come to terms with the fact that our list of allies has grown tremendously short in the last few months. Most of our representatives in Tallahassee are more than willing to put us on the chopping block Student Body President, buckled under the pressure of President Bernie Machen and Provost Joe Glover and voted in favor of this recent 15 percent tuition hike. And even our student newspaper opted against standing with the Student Body against tuition increases and instead threw its support behind the boards plan. Unquestionably, our university faces a looming budget crisis brought on by Gov. Scott, but it begs the question as to why we have a university president who worked on Gov. Scotts Economic Development Transition Team. Undoubtedly, we have to tighten our belts in this economic crisis, but I doubt anyone on the board has considered starting with the UF Presidents Mansion on University Avenue not used as a home or the $1.1 billion UF endowment, which increased by 9.3 percent in 2010. President Meyers is absolutely correct in pledging his continued opposition to block tuition, but we should resolutely condemn his decision to support a tuition increase more than block tuition. Whether its Rick Scotts chopping block or the administrations guillotine, students are alIm tired of kneeling. Our representatives, even with their loud voices, wont stand up for us.

As one of 10 students protesting, President Machen and President Meyers can shut their doors, close their window blinds and drown out our cries with a little soft music. But as a mass student body, we can organize our selves, march to Tigert Hall, and demand that when we go to balance the budget, we should always chop from the top. Whether its more budget cuts coming from Tallahassee in January 2012, the administrations block tuition plans, or the 15 percent tuition hike, we can defeat any and all attacks on public education by standing together.

Local eating challenges test men of all sizesBy BENJAMIN BRASCH avenue contributing writer Eating is one of the most basic functions of the human body. Proving how superior you are is one of the most basic functions of a man. The sweet spot that lies in the middle is, of course, eating challenges. Challenging a man at eating, something he was programmed to do, seems silly. But its when that man is on his quarter pound of stomach-pulver izing meat or a bite of searing spices measuring in at one million Scoville heat units that the challenge starts to take a toll. Many restaurants offer challenges that shake the foundations of eating and reshape the principles of what it means to be a man. Those who fall leave many heads shaking in disappointment, but those who bask in the warm light of gorged victory are truly champions among men. Luckily for all of Gainesvilles manly citizens, plenty of local establishments have eating challenges to make anyone falter. El Cinco Loco The owners at 101 Cantina, 1632 W. University Ave., were redoing their menu and saw an oppor tunity for a bright shining star of pure burrito glory. lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and your choice of beef, pork or chicken.

You see them everywhere: in your classes, giving campus tours and swarming midtown on a Monday night. Their Sperry shoes, Polo shirts and those things your dad used to keep his sunglasses around his neck culminate to cre ate this breed of college men. Indeed, since the birth of the college campus, there has been the bro. They are often described as drinking gratuitous amounts of alcohol, engaging in promiscuous activities and constantly in pursuit of female attention. out this past Friday, by staying with a group of bros from the hour they woke up until the time they fell asleep or passed out. What followed was almost 20 hours of drunken debauchery, complete with disrobing in public, day drinking, the shortest-ofshort khaki shorts and bruises that were a mystery the next morning. I have tried, to the best of my ability, to describe the day hourby-hour. However, no students or groups are mentioned by name, and this account, by no bro. But the group of guys I did follow bro-ed out all day. This was their story: 10:50 a.m. Hammering on the doors begins, as each brother is awoken with soothing screams, and an uplifting message: WAKE UP PUSSIES, WERE GOING TO THE BASEBALL GAME. 11:13 a.m. We arrive at Kay Bros. BBQ for 50-cent drafts and what can only be de scribed as a breakfast of champions. The bros pound about two pints each to start the day. 11:45 a.m. The group starts walking to the baseball game (already in the second inning), but gets distracted by the smell of stale beer and thrill of day drinking radiating from Salty Dog Saloon. Six pitchers are bought and split among the group. 1:50 p.m. We leave Salty and meet up with a brother who had just gotten out of class. The guys and their newest attendant, still wearing his backpack, swing into Gator City and buy three more pitchers. 2:05 p.m nally start heading to the baseball game. The last bro joins the group fresh off giving a campus tour to incoming freshmen. 2:30 p.m. their seats at the game. 2:45 p.m. 2:48 p.m. All bros are now shirtless, screaming, SUNS OUT, GUNS OUT! to a group of concerned-looking parents and their children. 3:17 p.m. The game ends and everyone heads back to Salty. Between eight and 12 pitchers were purchased, depending on the level of drunkenness of the person being asked. 5:48 p.m. The bros head to 101 Cantina to meet up with some girls. 6:15 p.m. A waitress dares a bro to chug a drink. Seeing this as a test of his mascu linity in the presence of females, he quickly complies and orders another pitcher. 6:52 p.m. The bros arrive back at the house. 8:50 p.m. Bros visiting from out of town arrive and reunion shotguns from beer cans commence in the hallway. 10:07 p.m. After getting dinner and tak ing a quick frat-nap, music begins blasting and drinking recommences. 10:25 p.m. First girls arrive. 10:36 p.m. The drunkest of the brothers begin dancing in a manner that can only be described as YouTube-worthy. 11:08 p.m. A Backstreet Boys song comes on. Everything in the room abruptly stops and everyone leans against each other, swaying and belting their hearts out reminiscent of a preteen girl in 1998. 11:11 p.m. The Backstreet-bonanza mercifully ends. Games of beer pong, civil after unleashing their inner 13-year-old girl. 11:47 p.m. The now-larger gaggle of bros leaves the house and makes its way to The Swamp. 12:05 a.m. After squeezing through the Thirty people share a table meant for 14. 12:16 a.m. Pitchers arrive, and drunken shenanigans continue. 1:37 a.m. The bros decide to leave mid town and head back to the house. A few of the bros are having profound bro-ments as they support each others weight and stumble down the sidewalk. Two people trip and fall when one loses his footing on the edge of the sidewalk. One bro is noticeably bleeding from the arm. 2:56 a.m. First bro is noticed passed out on a couch 4:17 a.m. Last group of girls, excluding girls dating bros, leaves. 4:35 a.m. are still up, completely wasted, milling around the house. 4:53 a.m. Last recorded drunk text is sent from a bro. **Note: Four of the bros reported waking up in their same clothes the next morning.The opposite of chick flicks: a guide to the manliest movies ever Andy MaroonColumnist the movie column CA VE OF FORGO TTEN DREAMSI f y o u r e i n t e r e s t e d i n t h e h i s t o r y o f t h e h u m a n r a c e i f y o u r e a m e m b e r o f t h e h u m a n r a c e y o u o w e i t t o y o u r s e l f t o s e e t h i s m o v i e S l a t e T o n i g h t a t 6 : 3 0 & 8 : 3 0 p m H I P P c i n e m a Suds is all fluff and good fun.

By DIANA LOPEZ avenue contributing writer Summer is upon us and beach bodies are longing to soak up some sun. Men who want to bulk up and show their summer physique need to focus on proper weight training and nutrition. The key is training hard with consistency and eating right, said UF junior Michael Pe Southwest Recreation Center. When you exert a certain stimulus on the muscle through resistance, youre breaking down the muscle, Petresky said. The building up of muscle happens after you workout, for instance, when youre sleeping. This is when the protein in your body repairs Protein is essential for muscle repair, Pe tresky said. Chicken, turkey, 90 percent lean beef, lean pork, top sirloin, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, milk, eggs, soy, tofu, sweet potato, tilapia and salmon are all full of protein and are recommended as a nutritional staple. I get asked so many times as to what supplements to use, Petresky said. He believes there is more to gaining muscle than just using supplements. However, there is atine. Although creatine is frowned upon for athletes, many average gym members do use it to power through their workout sessions. Its the only research-based supplement proven to enhance performance, Petresky said. It enhances ATP [Adenosine triphosphate] use, and it pulls water into the muscle. Thats where people get the fuller look from. This means that you are able to lift heavier weights and work out for a longer period of time. According to Petresky, it is a naturally occur ring substance found in our bodies and in red meat. Creatine helps you get stronger and is not a stimulant, said GNC sales associate Darrel Brooks. It helps with muscle recovery and an effective amount will cost about $60 to $80. As with misconceptions among supple ments, there are also fallacies toward weight training. Theres a misconception that you need to work out like body builders to get big, Petresky said. According to Petresky, most body builders use isolation exercises that wont help the aver age Joe in bulking up. Petresky said the average person should fo cus on core compound lifts such as deadlifts, squats, pull movements, rowing movements, overhead press and, of course, the infamous bench press. People who want to bulk up should make those the focus on a bi-weekly basis, Petresky said. Depending on the individual, Petresky recommends doing a warm up set, with lighter weights and three hard work sets with eight to 12 repetitions, working up to 12. Once you hit 12 reps increase the weight, start with eight reps and work up to 12 again. If youre unfamiliar with exercise form, edu cate yourself when you start, said Petresky. Dont pile up on heavy weights. Spend two to four weeks using light weights doing 15-20 reps so it teaches your body how to do the movements; when you start serious training, it will be simple muscle memory. Bulking up and gaining muscle takes dedication, patience and time. Petresky said the common error he sees is guys who dont eat enough. Take the time to see how much youre eating, Petresky said. Increase your calorie intake For more exercise tips, check out Petreskys By CARTER LYLES avenue columnistGood news, guys! The dream has soft research team has successfully created a working prototype of a portable X-ray gun. Just imagine how easy getting test answers through a drawer will be, what a breeze mild voyeurism will turn into, how simple it will be to check out what the girls on campus are working with underneath their ... Just kidding. The device is actually a handheld hybrid of an Optoma PK102 pico projector, a Microsoft LifeCam digital we bcam, a FireFly MV USB near-infrared camera, and a Logitech R400 laser pointer which researchers have discovered creates a safe and portable Xray machine that can be used to show physical therapy patients whats really going on inside their bodies. The device, which researchers call the AnatOnMe project, was tested on 18 individuals chosen to participate in a test study group on the effectiveness of image projection on three types of surfaces during simulated therapy consultations. Out of the three types of surfaces, the AnatOnMe project kept the patients attention the longest through the sheer novelty of seeing their insides on their outsides. Microsoft Researchs Amy Karlson explains, People are notoriously bad at sticking to their physical therapy regimens. Injuries, as a result, take longer to heal, and it has been reported that between 30 and 50 percent of patients with chronic conditions fail to comply with their recommended therapies, an average that AnatOnMe hopes to curb with its new device. There seems to be something quite compelling and unique about viewing medical imagery on ones own body, Karlson said. The device can also take photos during a consultation, which can be printed out and reviewed as an additional aid and incentive for the patient. Developed on the Redmond campus in Washington and led by researchers Tao Ni, Amy Karlson and Daniel Wigdor, the AnatOnMe project was presented recently in Vancouver at ACM CHI 2011, the Association for Computing Machinerys Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. This is an interesting new space because, despite the prevalence of technology in many settings, technology has been relatively absent from face-to-face communication and edu cation opportunities between doctors and patients, Karlson said. So, unfortunately for all the guys out there, research into a handheld Xray gun has stalled beneath the moral implications of what havoc such a device would wreak upon the female population of the world. But the good news is that at least when you bust your knee playing ultimate Frisbee, the AnatOnMe project will be able to show you exactly how long it will be until youre back out on 10, ALLIGATOR thursday, june 16, 2011Courtesy of Amy K.

Cantina and Pazza Bistro challenges have lowest success rateslenge have had to be carried out, tended to with purple lips. Most say the challenge lasts hours after the last bite, as their insides have to deal with the uncomfortably hot extract. The Gator Cup Burger Challenge The new burger on the block hails from Daytona Beach, but has not had much trouble making Gainesville its home. The Gator Cup Burger Challenge now resides in the newly opened Endzone Sports Bar & Grill, 1209 W. University Ave. The burger weighs in at a gut-busting two pounds and is accompanied by a deceptive side of french fries. There is no time limit in tors who have taken the challenge so far have been victorious. Those who conquer the burger receive a Gator Cup Burger T-shirt in addition to a spot on the in-house trophy and a picture on the Endzone website and Facebook page. The Inferno Pizza If you were to choose a slice-of-life moment and equate it to a slice of Pazza Bistros Inferno Pizza, it would be the spiciest mo ment of your entire existence. Only 53 people have survived the Inferno Pizza at Pazza Bistro, 3841 SW Archer Rd., but 355 have fallen to the spice of this parching pie. The challenge started just over a year ago, and Marc Perotti, owner of Pazza Bistro, said it only came into being because of the small market of students who would be willing to try it. This pizza has ghost pepper everywhere, Perotti said. A home made hot sauce of jalapenos, habaneros and ghost peppers re places traditional tomato sauce. Sitting atop the hot sauce lays eight habaneros, four jalapenos and three ghost peppers. Cover ing the combination of peppers is another homemade sauce of cayenne pepper, vinegar and more ghost peppers, thus bringing the heat level to extremes unknown. though Perotti said if the pizza is not eaten by the 10-minute mark, water, is allowed, but no napkins or silverware can be used. Perotti said that 75 percent of those who attempt the 12-inch inferno pizza challenge vomit, win or lose. One poor soul was sick for 18 hours and had to call in sick to work the next day. Another contestant had to have an ambulance called because he thought he would die, Perotti said. If the challenger overcomes the blistering pain, they earn a spot on the Wall of Flame, free soda for life and a key chain.

thursday, june 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11 professional wrestling CJ PrunerEditor-In-Chief No holds barred: one mans journey through pro wrestlingToward the end of my senior year of high school, my theology teacher, a behemoth of a human being who Im pretty sure fought alongside the Philistines in a previous life, told our class to write coup de grace. The prime objective of the assignment: Find out who you are. As a person who wears American placed bets on womens college basketball games (it was a dark point in life), you can imagine how an exer cise requiring extensive self-analysis would be challenging. For my classmates, many of whom have just as much of a chance of curing cancer as they do of going to prison for insider trading, the topic was just as perplexing. Any idea offered up by the class was quickly given the thumbs down from Conan the Barbarian. Thats not you, he huffed at us. I just wanna know WHO are YOU?! Screw it, I told myself. Jesus wasnt going to help me after all the dead baby jokes I had made in eco nomics class. Plus, I still owed Him money from the Jets game. I did the responsible thing. I walked into the school library, walked past all the rows of leather-bound books containing philosophical treatises and sayings from the saints, sat down at YouTube. After watching Flea Market Montgomery for the 32nd time and a few the epic I Quit match from WrestleMania 13 between Bret Hitman Hart and Stone Cold Steve Austin. In terms of WrestleManias, WrestleMania 13 was like Batman & Robin, only with a tad more spandex and fewer puns. Yet buried beneath that turd mine of pay-per-view shows was the diamond that was Hart vs. Austin. For about 30 minutes, the two beat the living bejesus out of each other like they were two 15get fertilized by Justin Bieber. As Hart locked the bloodied Texas Rattlesnake into the dreaded sharpshooter, a light bulb went off in my head. I remembered that whenever he gave his pre-match interviews, Hart would always turn to the camera and proclaim himself to be the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. God had sent me a savior donned in pink and black trunks. I wrote a 10-to12-page term paper heavily based not on the theological proofs of Aquinas or the deontological arguments of Kant, but on a single catch line from the Excellence of Execution. I rode that line to an A. Ever since the TV that one Saturday afternoon when I was 5 years old to see a bearded man with a voice that sounds like he choked down a buck a colorblind transvestite cowboy, Ive been hooked to professional wrestling. Im not one of those guys who their parents basement until theyre 40, but Im pretty damn close. My peers have told me they can tell whenever I write our papers editorial because words such as slobberknocker and jabroni wind up in the copy. When I interviewed for the job as editor-in-chief of the Alligator, I was wearing my Hulkamania tank underneath my starched shirt and tie you know, for good luck. There have been times when Ive woken up after Friday night bar crawls in pain, not from any hangover, but from the Ric Flair chops cer tain sports writers subjected me to. know its all fake? Are fans lives so sad that they live out their wildest fantasies through costume-wearing, coked-out, mullet-rocking meatheads? The answer: Ehh, not really. Sure, its not exactly feasible to believe a 7-foot tall, 320-pound man was set despite being buried alive, locked into burning caskets and smashed with 150 gazillion chair shots, just cannot die. But its fun. And its American. Anyone can like it. Women watch it because it they can get giddy below the belt while looking at John Cenas anatomy. Men watch it because they can get giddy below the belt while seeing someone jump off of a ladder to crush an opponent (and, for some, because they get to look at John Ce nas anatomy). Its also a great conversation starter. Im not suggesting you go up to that sorority girl at the bar and ask her if she prefers the camel clutch or the mandible claw. But youd be sur prised how many times WHATCHYA teresting results. not in your best interest to take it. However, if he offers a stone cold stunner, take interest but make sure he has money and protection. Is wrestling scripted? Sure. But thats the case with all movies, po litical elections and landing on the moon. The bumps, however, are very money. I dont care if youve been spoiled rotten with every cinematic liner, its not as boss as seeing a man thrown 20 feet off the top of a steel cage onto a table, then thrown through the top the same cage to have a chair hit him on the way down before being thrown onto a pile of thumbtacks all in a 15-minute span. And thats PG compared to the stuff they used to do with stop signs, Will pro-wrestling make you tougher? No. I got chased out of my shower the other day by a bee. Will it make you smarter? Probably not. Ive wasted too much mental storage space it get you laid? If it does, its probably the kind of sex that will have you in court a few years later pointing out the no-no places on the doll. of every man. C.J. Pruner is the editor-in-chief of the Alligator.

Wuerffel is expected to make a full recovery, according to the Associated Press. In a busy week of sports entertainment, the crew joins host Jesse Simonton for a quick jam session on the CWS, the Stan ley Cup, The Facilitator and Gold Cup ac tion. Subscribe and download on iTunes. JESSE SIMONTONAlligator Staff In the opening baseball media session in February still stinging from a bitterly short trip nearly eight months before the top-ranked Gators spoke about their motivation to get back to the College World Series. Florida players lamented how they were nervous, over whelmed, excited but ultimately blind to the environment they walked into. Yet every player and coach was quick to respond that if the opportunity presented itself to get back to Omaha, Neb., things would be different. As a coach, you can give a player a lot. You can coach a lot of different ways and give them lots of things to improve on, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said in February. But one thing a coach can not give a player is experience. A year ago, the Gators trekked to the CWS wide-eyed and content. Fresh off a Super Regional sweep of perennial powerhouse Miami, Florida strolled into Omaha with a sense of accomplishment, a feeling that the hard part was already past them. But after UCLA and Florida State drubbed UF twice en route to an early exit, a long plane ride home wasnt quite so enjoyable. I hate to say it, but everybody was just happy we got there, senior second baseman Josh Adams said. This year, its different because everybody knows we expected to be there. Dont get me wrong were thrilled were going but theres that little thing in the back of our minds that we knew where we were going to be at this point. We just have to stay focused on the task at hand. Florida left for the CWS on Wednesday, a day earlier than a season ago, charged with a renewed mental approach to the circus that awaits. After reaching the CWS for the second straight season a feat never accomplished in school Florida takes business-like attitude back to OmahaMax Reed / Alligator StaffNo. 2 national seed Florida left Gainesville on Wednesday to travel to the College World Series in Oma ha, Neb. The Gators said they are focused this year after distractions led to an early exit in 2010. Lake LeBegone. Garrison Keillors famous 21st Century update. Luckily, King James made it possible. No longer are all the women strong, all the men good looking and all the children above aver age. Now their lives all suck. Well, according to LeBron anyways. In what is becoming an annual summer tradition like the Kentucky Derby or a Kardashian engagement, the Pied Piper is in a world of Heat after having the audacity to go Rick James on his haters after shrinking in the playoffs again. Antagonizing critics with, Im rich b**** and yall better remember how much better my life is than yours is not the way to address another failed opportunity. Wait, should I clarify what I wrote? How many times can LeBron say something stupid and then retract the same remarks one news cycle later? His petulant whining is becoming increasingly maddening. James ignorant comments only provide further fodder for his detractors. Citing Gods plan in a tweet is What everyone Witnessed Jesse SimontonSimon SEE BASEBALL, P AGE 20 SEE JESSE, P AGE 19UF BASKETBALLBy MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Listening to sophomore Patric Young talk about Floridas season-ending loss in March at the NCAA Tournament, its clear he hasnt put the game behind him. Despite contributing solid minutes as a freshman and being eyed as a potential selection in the NBA draft, Young said losing 74-71 to Butler in overtime at the Elite Eight motivated him to come back and improve. We felt we shouldnt have lost that game, he said recently while being inter viewed regarding his invitation to the U-19 USA Basketball camp. Im going to avenge myself from last season, (from) that last game that we lost, he said. Were going to come back and were going to work together as a team. I want to be the guy that can push my teammates and help us get to that point to make it to a national championship this year. But the team that was three wins away from a title is no more. Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Chandler Parsons, Vernon Macklin and Alex Tyus are gone, and the path for Young is wide open. If the 6-foot-9 sophomore is to make good on his goals, it will be with a completely different lineup and larger personal role something Young said he is comfortable with. Motivated Young hoping to fuel guard-heavy GatorsSEE HOOPS, P AGE 19UF plays Texas at 7 p.m. Saturday in Game 1 on ESPN As a coach, you can give a player a lot. You can coach a lot of different ways and give them lots of things to improve on. But one thing a coach can not give a player is experience.Kevin OSullivan UF baseball coachYoung


THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 only added ammunition. God doesnt care about the NBA Finals, Jason Whitlock responded emphatically, and hes hardly LeBrons harshest heckler. For years, Ive rooted against The Chosen One, but I always thought he got a bad rap, overanalyzed and maliciously scrutinized. No more. Not after Game 5 against Boston in 2010. Not after The Decision and the ensuing celebration debacle. Not after he complained early in the season about how he didnt expect this much vitriol when leaving Cleveland, only to turn right around and say screw the fans. But most importantly, and especially, not after all the dancing, screaming, chestbumping, hollering and lame-ass taunting during the regular season, only to disappear on the games biggest stage. Basketball fans dont want some sick metamorphosis of the zoo, David Copper the worlds most talented basketball player LeBegone needs to go away for a while and hope everyone forgets what theyve witnessed. A few more Finals observations... I dont know which was weirder to watch: won, or a healthy Chris Bosh goin down in the hallway like a velociraptor just attacked him. Did Bosh ever say what happened or was he breaking down because he was thinking, Oh crap, theyre going to throw someone in the river and Im the most logical choice? ment. Theyll win a championship, but if it doesnt happen next year its going to be really, really awkward for LeBron and Wade to hang out on South Beach. Unsurprisingly, all the Heat fans were Cuban calling them out on live TV was exactly why David Stern hates Cubes but most everyone else loves him. For both teams. I guess the NBA operates ly air Casey Anthony crap, Well, hopefully no one minds their retinas burning and their brains exploding. I love that the Heats Erick Dampier was NBA Finals. Nothing like stealing $73 million from Cuban and then saying, I know I didnt show up for the 2006 Finals and was $90,000 bottle of champagne because I didnt play against you. Finally, these Finals reminded us of one huge thing: You can mix bologna with three day, you still just taste bologna. JESSE, from page 18By BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Kelsey Bruder always told freshmen teammates their UF careers only got easier after year one. I might have weighed more than my batting average freshman reference to her .133 mark. Having completed a senior season in which she batted .387 with 19 homers and 71 RBIs, Bruders time Tuesday. The current member of National Pro Fastpitchs USSSA Pride was honored with the 2011 Honda Sports Award for Softball. The award is given to the nations top collegiate softball player as decided by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. To be recognized as the best player in college softball seems absolutely surreal, Bruder said in an Receiving this award would not have been possible without every single one of my teammates. ner, and only the second Gators softball player along with Stacey Nelson in 2009 to be nominated for the award. Bruder now becomes one of 12 candidates for the Honda-Broderick Cup, the trophy given each season to the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. cut basketball player and 2010 winThe Broderick Cup will be awarded at a New York ceremony on June 27. This is certainly one of the most prestigious awards that a studentathlete can receive in college athletics, UF coach Tim Walton said in a statement. This is the exclamation point to a great collegiate career for Kelsey and her senior classmates who leave behind a legacy of greatness. A two-time All-American and 2011 Academic All-American, Bruder was at her best during Southeastern Conference play in 2011. She led the SEC in runs, doubles, slugging percentage, hits, RBIs and home runs during league play. The 79 runs she scored this season were a school record. After a freshman season in which she got sparse playing time as a pitcher and designated player, Bruder bounced back her sophomore year to tie the school record for slugging percentage while batting .369 and starting all 68 games. She beat out fellow nominees Ashley Hansen (Stanford), Jolene Henderson (California) and Chellege softballs premier individual award. Former Gator and U.S. Olympic swimmer Tracy Caulkins is the only UF athlete to win the Broderick Cup, taking the award in 1982 and 1984. Neither Bruder, who was hospitalized Tuesday night with dehydration and a stomach illness, nor Walton could be reached for comment.Max Reed / Alligator Staff Wilbekin, four others compete in crowded backcourtposition, he said. I have been working on my game to develop my offensive game, so when that time comes for me to step into that role, Ill be ready and prepared. With the statuses of forwards still up in the air, Young and littleused Will Yeguete may be the only two returning players in Floridas frontcourt. Incoming freshman three-star recruit Walter Pitchford is raw and will need time to develop before contributing major minutes. Florida will depend heavily on its guards in 2011-12, a position of serious strength. The teams top two scorers, guards Kenny Boynton (14.2 ppg) and Erving Walker (14.6), are slated to return, as are Casey Prather and Scottie Wilbekin. rio, who Wilbekin said might be the teams best shooter, will also ting out last season due to NCAA transfer rules. Plus, the Gators inked one of the nations top prosBrad Beal. Theres going to be a lot of great guards here next year, said Wilbekin, who will join Young at the USA Basketball camp. Wilbekin, who turned 18 days after the loss to Butler, said he has been working on his shooting and ball handling in the offseason, and added that he thought too much was made of his age last season. I knew what I could do inside, but I just felt like I had to go out there and prove it to everybody else, Wilbekin said. Now, the sophomore will be tremely crowded backcourt likely to utilize a lot of three-guard, and potentially even some four-guard, lineups. With this team, we have so many guards were possibly going to have one of the top backcourts in the league or in the country, Young said. How coach Billy Donovan decides to use that talent remains to be seen, but one thing is certain, and Young knows it as well as anybody else. Its going to be completely different from the team last year, he said. Ill tell you that. HOOPS, from page 18UF SOFTBALL To be recognized as the best player in college softball seems absolutely sur real.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011 Florida focused, could face SEC foe Vanderbilt in Game 2 on Tuesdayhistory the Gators know to anticipate large crowds, crazed autograph seekers and cameras everywhere. They under stand the overall atmosphere of the classic event. When the media met with players and coaches on Tuesday, there was an obvious message: Focus on winning, not on the environment and surrounding hoopla. OSullivan led the business-like approach, organizing a team meeting Monday to clear up all the extra stuff. The hotel, the tickets, when were leaving, getting prepared to get packed just the detailed stuff that kind of crept up on us last year, OSullivan said. I think what happened last year was due to the way we prepared ourselves the whole week. I wouldnt say we were satisit was the end of the road, that they were just happy to get there. This year, Im hoping that they under stand that we still have one more step to me personally, it felt like everything was kind of rushed when we got out there last year, and the next thing you know, its the tried to do the best job I can, starting Monday night, preparing ourselves for Satur day night. After addressing initial distractions, OSullivan decided to have the team travel a day earlier to get in a full practice at the new TD Ameritrade Park. In 2010, the last year of historic Rosenblatt Stadium, Florida had just a 45-minute session eight hours before playing UCLA. just the trip out there, Game 1 starter Hudson Randall said about last year.
