Two staff members and 45 students will cram into a bus for an 18-hour drive to help with relief efforts this weekend. Theyre leaving today for the trip, which is sponsored by UF Hillel in partnership with Columbia/Barnard Hillel in New York, said Melissa Stern, a UF Hillel staff member. The response has been really surprising and wonderful to hear that the whole school wants to help out, Stern said, adding that theres a wait list of 12 people. The group will work Friday and part of Saturday with a federation in Staten Island, Stern said. Theyre bringing cleaning kits as well as food, clothing and other necessities collected from drives by Hillel and UF student organizations. Ideally, were having the entire bottom tions, she said.

GAU co-president Graham Picklesimer said the union asked the university last month to increase minimum wage for graduate assistants. Picklesimer said the chief negotiator for UF said there was no money in the budget. Its pocket change, he said in reference to the wage increase.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 ITS A SWAMP THANG IS ON ITUNES. MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Contributing WriterDaryl Brown knows a thing or two about being a Gators fan. Brown, a 34-year-old Gainesville rapper known as Deala, released his newest single, Its a Swamp Thang, on iTunes and Google Play Oct. 2. Brown recorded a remix of the song with Gators defensive tackle Leon Orr Tuesday night. Brown said he bonded with Orr when he cut the Florida players hair before football games. Orr loved Browns song and pushed for it to play in the Swamp on gamedays, Brown said. Sophia Bou-Ghannam, a 19-year-old biomedical engineering sophomore, said shes heard the track a few times during football games. She said hearing it in the stadium pumps up students and gets the Swamp rowdy. Its an accurate portrayal of how crazy we get about Florida football, she said. The funniest line of the song is Gators eat haters. A music video to boost the songs hype and bring out the pride in Gators fans is in the works, Brown said. Orr asked Florida head coach Will Muschamp if the two could shoot the music video in the Swamp and include the team, Brown said. He said Muschamp agreed. Brown planned to shoot the music video last week, but he postponed it because He said he wants to complete the video by spring. Brown recorded the original song to pay tribute to his Gainesville family roots and unite Gators fans. My heart lies with the Gator Nation, he said. Brown was born a Gators fan in 1978 at Shands at UF. My dad was a UF student, he said. I grew up always watching Gators games. Brown combined his love for Gators sports and music as an adult, when he opened his music production company, wrote Its a Swamp Thang. He said he got a lot of great feedback for the song from the Gainesville community after promoting it downtown upon its release. With the remix recorded, Brown said he has big plans for the song and plans to make it an anthem for Gators fans. Merchandise will come soon, he said. He plans to make T-shirts, hats and other apparel boasting the songs lyrics, he said. Business aside, Brown said he knew he wanted to make an anthem to unite Gators fans and support the team he loves. When we unite, were a force to be reckoned with, Brown said.

Gainesville rapper, Gators fan releases anthem of The SwampC AMPUS SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterWith just a few clicks, UF students can get discounts for places around town. Student Body President Tj Villamil announced in his State of the Campus address that students can text UF to 96714 to receive deals at Gainesville businesses. Implementing a mobile deal program was on Villamils platform when he ran After signing up, students will upgrade with the purchase of a pita from Pita Pit or double tasty burger from Relish. Mark Highbaugh, CEO of Mar limar, the interactive mobile strategies company running the program, said My University Mobile was created about two years ago. It was implemented at 14 other universities, including University of Kentucky and Virginia Tech, Highbaugh said. So far, Pita Pit and Relish are the only places offering deals, but Highbaugh said other merchants are interested. As of Wednesday morning, about 500 people were signed up for My UF Mobile, Highbaugh said. He said the company turned down merchants whose deals werent in the consumers best interests. When Marlimar looks for a company, they look for high value, relevance to students and timeliness, Highbaugh said. Based on the companys studies at other universities, students tend to not opt out if they get up to three offers a day and up to 10 a week. The deals usually last between two to three days. Its the best window that causes students to act on it, Highbaugh said. Villamil said its great because its free to all students. Standard text messaging rates apply, but there are no additional costs. In fact, students can raise money for UF. Marlimar works with the companies and shares a portion with the university. Just by you participating, you are helping raise revenue, Highbaugh said. Villamil said the amount of money UF receives depends on how many users sign up. He said that based on the estimates he received, if all 50,000 UF students sign up, UF Villamil said the university hasnt decided where the money will go. Not only does My UF Mobile it also allows them to try different local venues. Thats the only reason why I did it, he said. The students are the winners.

THIS IS THE SECOND TRADER JOES IN FLORIDA. MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterThe Hawaiian shirt-wearing employees of Trader Joes will greet Gainesville residents at the end of the semester. Trader Joes announced this week that the new Gainesville store will open Dec. 12. The Gainesville location will be the second Trader Joes in Florida, according to the companys website. The California-based company has more than 350 stores nationwide. The building is under construction in a portion of the former Goodys, 3728 Archer Road. According to Alligator ar chives, the store signed a 10-year lease agreement for a Butler Plaza space in May. The store began accepting job applications Nov. 7. Applications can be printed from www.traderjoes.com. The grocery store features an array of domestic and imported foods and beverages including specialities such as Speculoos Cookie Butter and basic groceries such as eggs and milk. There are about 2,000 items under Trader Joes private label, which is about 80 percent of the stores inventory, according to a news release. Contact Michael Scott Davidson at mdavidson@alligator.org.Trader Joes set to open on Dec. 12 they may have the disease. Myers said he and his colleagues arent surprised by the new West Nile infections. I wouldnt be surprised if more cases began to pop up, he said. After Tropical Storm Debby, he said, there was a noticeable spike in mosquito populations, particularly the type that spread West Nile Virus. In the weeks and months after the storm, a few cases of the virus were found in county chickens and a horse. Most of the virus symptoms are similar to those associated rash. But Myers said 80 percent of people infected show no symptoms, while about one in 150 shows signs of a more aggressive form of the disease that can attack the neurological system. The best ways to prevent infection with the virus are to wear clothing that covers most of your body and insect repellent. Dont go out at dusk or dawn, Myers said. Thats when theyre looking for blood. Some UF students said they were stunned the disease was found in the county. Danielle Cotillo, 20-year-old public relations sophomore, said her friends spoke about being warned of the disease while studying abroad. She said she didnt think she would have to worry about it in the U.S. There arent really that many mosquitos in Gainesville, the St. Petersburg native said. I never really thought about it.

The performance represents anger and conformity. students, the statement read. Also, many graduate assistants do not receive family medical leave, Picklesimer said. Family medical leave only applies for graduate assistants who work 1,250 hours or more a year. However, graduate assistants hours have been cut, sometimes down to 1,000 hours he said. Sarah Taber, 29, said she makes less money now than she did as a doctoral student. Taber found out she was pregnant shortly after starting her assistantship at UF about four years ago. She said there is a threeto sixmonth window during which new mothers often need family medical leave, but it was not provided to her. Ive had a couple female colleagues drop out, she said. GAU co-president Jos Soto said some graduate assistants make below the poverty level for wages, which is $11,170 for a household of one, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Poverty Guidelines. We are not here to demand anything that is unrealistic, Soto said. We [can] conserve The Gator Nation with better health care.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2012 MEGHAN PRYCEAvenue Contributing WriterTyler wants the best of both worlds. In college, he spends his time trying to balance two sides of himself: his fraternity side and his gay side. Bro-ing Pains, a comedic Web series produced by UF students, explores the friendship between a gay man surrounded by straight men in a fraternity. Aside from the shows Partners and Happy Endings, theres not a lot of shows that look at the relationships between gay men and straight men and how they can have a friendship, said Jonothon Mitchell, a 26-year-old multimedia telecommunication graduate student. Mitchell is the writer and creator of Bro-ing Pains. He also plays the main character, Tyler, a man in a fraternity open about his sexual orientation. Mitchell said he can relate to Tylers desire to belong and to be accepted in a world that normally isnt very accepting. The overlying theme of the whole series is the idea of acceptance and knowing where you he said. Ansley Gordon, a 20-yearold public relations and theatre junior, plays Heather. Gordon said her character says what every girl thinks but cant say. Her noter almost everyone can relate to. Trenor Wilkins, a 20-year-old telecommunication junior, is the assistant director in charge of the sound for the series. Wilkins said the series explores stereotypes and breaks them. Because the actors and producers involved in Bro-ing Pains are students, production depends on their schedules. cult to juggle academics and acting. When I look back on college, Ill think of what I accomplished, not how tired I was, she said. Skyler Kern, a 23-year-old telecommunication senior, is the director of the Web series. What makes it worthwhile is when Im sitting at work at 2 a.m., and I have someone who I dont even know come up to me and say I love Bro-ing Pains, Kern said. Mitchell said there will not be a second season to the Web series. I want everyone to end exactly where theyre supposed to end, he said.
