To save money on gas, AAA recommends motorists maintain their cars through basic procedures such as oil G AS, from page 1LIFESTYLE NATHALIE DORTONNEAlligator Contributing WriterDavid Denslow didnt think much about President Barack Obamas State of the Union proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $9. Denslow, a UF economist, said the people who would be most affected by this raise are high school dropouts, college students and women with small children. The big problem in our society is that young men are getting less of an education than our women, he said. The displacement of less skilled workers by young college students and women will have a negative effect. The current minimum wage in Florida is $7.79 an hour. The typical person works 2,000 hours a year, which translates to about 40 hours a week. In Florida, the average person working for minimum wage would earn about $15,600 a year before taxes. UF student Conor Munro works 16 hours a week at Moes Southwest Grill on UFs campus to pay off his student loans. Right now, people working on campus work about 20 cents above minimum wage, the 21-year-old history and economics junior said. The real minimum wage accounts Munro said minimum wage wouldnt affect college students two to three years after graduation. Hopefully, well be competing for jobs above minimum wage, he said. Lawrence Kenny, a UF economics professor, said federal wages tend to remain constant for a period of time before it increases. From 2000 to 2006, federal minimum wage was $5.15 and increased to $5.85 in 2007, according to the 2012 Florida Department of Economic Opportunity wage history report. The solution to minimum wage is to acquire skills and not be dependent on minimum wage, Kenny said. Historically, he said, minimum wage has had the greatest impact on minorities. Tahiri Jean-Baptiste said raising wages would create setbacks for low-income families. You cant raise a family on $15,000 a year, but if you raise minimum wage, everything will go up with it, the 20-year-old English and anthropology junior said. If consumers have more spending power, your products will cost more. Denslow said the focus should be on the salary of the top 1 percent billionaires who are exempt from ordinary income tax rates. Instead of paying more for groceries and hamburgers, Id rather be taxed for prepaid education, which would help low-income families, he said. Munro said students shouldnt take raising minimum wage for granted. If you support raising minimum wage, you have to pressure President Obama and make sure he follows through, he said.Students, experts weigh Obamas minimum wage proposal KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterSavannah Mauragis walked out of the Lincoln Middle School Auditorium into the chilly drizzle Monday night, clutching her third-place science fair ribbon. The 17-year-old Santa Fe High School senior beamed with a smile, not because of the mathematics category award, but because it was her last science fair. Im free, she said. Mauragis, who has competed in science fair competitions for years, joined about 30 other middle and high school students on stage Monday night when the Alachua Region Science and Engineering Fair winners were announced.

ELENI KOUVATSOSAlligator Contributing Writer two shows at the 2013 UF Actor Showcase on March 4 in the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City. The showcase features select students who will graduate with bachelors or masters degrees in Fine Arts performing different scenes and songs. Tim Altmeyer, an assistant professor in UFs School of Theater + Dance, coordinated the trip, which is funded by the college. He said the showcase started in 2001 and is an opportunity for students from the colleges acting and musical theater programs to perform in front of agents, managers, casting directors and producers in the New York City area. Weve got some recent grads who showcased in New York and it launched their careers, Altmeyer said. Lyndon Smith, Alex Hernandez and George Salazar are UF graduates who participated in the New York showcase, Altmeyer said. Smith is now an actress on the CWs , Her nandez acts in the Broadway production of Peter and the Starcatcher and Salazar per forms in the off-Broadway musical F#@king Up Everything. Marissa Toogood said she hopes she will be as successful as her predecessors. Toogood is a 22-year-old musical theater senior, and she is one of ten students who were chosen to travel to New York for this years showcase. Its just excited nerves, she said. Its kind of like the feeling right before Christmas. Anastasia Placido, a 22-year-old acting senior, will also perform in the showcase. She said shes looking forward to the trip group. Weve had so much time to run these scenes and get them into tip-top shape, she said. Placido said she and the other nine students were selected based on an audition in front of New York casting director Alan Silverman. Silverman recommended the ten actors who stood out to him. In addition to the performance industry guests who will attend, the event is open to the public. UF students and alumni in the area are encouraged to RSVP and attend. This year most of the scenes have comedic themes. There are moments of contemplation, but there are also moments of just ridiculous humor, Placido said.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 While researching for her biography All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, Paula Broadwell spent months in Afghanistan with General Petraeus, then-commander of the International Security Assistance Force, to fully understand Americas most prominent general of the last decade. The now-infamous affair that ensued between Broadwell and her subject during that time shed new light on the complicated relationship between the media and the military. The scandal demonstrated how contemporary media coverage of the military may lead to the disclosure of sensitive material and also how it causes reporting bias. As the nation winds down over a decade of war, it is time to analyze the complex relationship between journalists and soldiers. The relationship between the press and the armed forces has not always been as close as todays. After journalists relayed overtly negative stories to the American public during the Vietnam War, the military increasingly distanced itself from the media. Even as late as the Persian Gulf War, jour nalists were strictly managed and generally kept separate from American servicemen and women. This policy changed during Operation Iraqi Freedom, when the U.S. Department of Defense allowed 600 journalists to embed with the troops. The intimacy provided certain advantages. On the one hand, the military was reported in a more favorable light, because journalists wrote about men and women they knew and interacted with on a daily basis. On the other hand, reporters received detailed knowledge and information about their subjects, and the public became better informed. Embedded tion. Of the 150 media workers killed on the job in Iraq from 2003 to 2011, only 26 were not Iraqis. Essentially all foreign journalists employ security for those embedded, this safety is free and guaranteed. The close relationship, however, has several disadvantages. First, the media may be granted too much access to the military, depending on your views regarding freedom of information. Nonetheless, it is true, despite our opinion on the legitimacy of this freedom and whether it pertains to all state information (as Julian Assange and his followers would believe), the media may reveal information that is clearly not in the interest of the military. The 2010 Rolling Stone inter view with General Stanley McChrystal, for instance, revealed serious personal divides within the defense organization. As a result of his public comments, General McChrystal was relieved of his command, and soon after the incident then-Defense Secretary Robert tion in interactions with the media. Second, when journalists act closely with troops, they tend to exhibit bias in favor of the military. (A notable counterexample to this trend is the behavior of the media dur ing the Vietnam War, when journalists were biased against the American military.) From the two World Wars to Iraq, the closer reporters are to soldiers, the more agreeable the relationship. While the journalist-soldier es, it deprives the public of a truly accurate picture of the situation on the ground. It is dubious to assert any piece written in a war zone, however, would be impartial, yet the information embedded journalists glean is unsurpassed. Biased reporting is not necessarily an evil. Neutrality is certainly valuable, but writers and reporters should also be able to convey their perspectives. Doing so provides a more accurate picture of their experiences. If we accept the premise of biased reporting, though, it is important we recognize it when we read it something the public may not do. The problem is bias is often reported and interpreted as fact, so we believe we gain a neutral standpoint on a topic when the opposite is true. Attempting to destroy media bias is neither realistic nor appropriate. We should recognize that although there are certainly many pieces with a pro-military bent, there are also reports with opposing viewpoints. We should train ourselves to more accurately identify this partiality, and in doing so pro-military media bias would become simply another perspective from which we read the news.

I am a transfer student from the University of West Florida, where I was in the honors program and graduated with an Associate of Arts degree. Aside from my involvement in the honors program, I also held leadership positions in the Baptist Collegiate Ministry and student government. During my time at UWF, the student government balanced the budget so that a surplus of money was redistributed to give students free printing credits to their campus accounts. This was something that we, as members of Student Government, took great pride in because it was manner. As a senator for UFs College of Engineering, I would have no agenda except for one driven by the wants and ideas of engineering students.

This was in reference to his not seeing rap as an art form wor thy of respect and denouncing it as one of the great evils of American society (OMG, the black rapper thugs are poisoning our youth). Well, Im not sure if those beliefs make you out of touch, but they certainly bring into question your ideas concerning race, gender equality and artistic expression that challenge the status quo. Apparently the source of male patriarchy and misogyny originate with hip-hop, and those thugs are the ones who oppress women and prevent them from achieving true equality. Its not at all an American society that has long devalued women as second-class citizens who are worthy only through the constructs of motherhood and sexuality. Also, promiscuity of the youth should be blamed on rap music, and if this wretched art form would disappear and I guess the race the music originated from America could be a great, moral nation again without all this debauchery. I guess the conservative love of the First Amendment only extends to a certain demographic of people in this nation, and Skipper seems very willing to ignore the precious Constitution to deprive these pigs of their speech. This makes sense, because these rappers hold so much power in society, and the largely white record executives dont have a role in promoting the messages in music. Skipper reminds me of the early critics of jazz and rock n roll who thought this music, which also largely originated from black people, would corrupt the youth with its messages of drugs and sexuality. Jazz and rock were seen as too sensual and youth who listened to it would become sex-crazed and drug-addicted. Well as you can see from your apparent worshiping of those like Bob Dylan and Jimmy Page that opinion didnt hold up.

Milners wife passed away in 2001, and in 2007 he sold the kennel, only to take it up again in 2010. The kennel is set to be closed down in 2014 due to zoning restrictions and noise complaints. Milner worries about his clientele, as his kennel is the only one in the area. frustration. But for now, hes looking on the bright side and continues to accept animals of all shapes, sounds and sizes and tries to not worry about the future.Photo Story by Elise Giordano

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2013 CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterGymnast Bridgette Caquatto endured several setbacks even before arriving at Florida. Two days before the 2011 Pan American Games, Caquatto injured her knee. Surgery revealed that she had chipped her kneecap and suffered muscle tears. Caquatto then suffered a partial tear in her rotator cuff during the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. She underwent shoulder surgery on May 31, and has spent the fall semester rehabilitating. Until late November, she was held exclusively to rehab and physical conditioning. I would say she was held together by some tape all summer long, coach Rhonda Faehn said. Despite regaining strength in her shoulder and knee, Caquattos freshman season may be in jeopardy. Faehn held an individual meeting with Caquatto on Monday to discuss potential eligibility concerns if the freshman continues to participate in exhibitions this season. According to NCAA rules, a gymnast cannot appear in more than 30 percent of a teams events. Although Caquatto has only competed in exhibition routines, those count as an appearance. Faehn initially wanted Caquatto to per Floridas 197.3-196.175 win against Geor gia on Saturday but ultimately scrapped the plan. We chose not to because were not really sure just yet, Faehn said. Now that it is in the later part of the season, if shes to go out and (competes in) exhibition ... shell lose a full year of eligibility because of competing in the latter half of the season.

Bridgette was sidelined from Jan. 4 until Jan. 18 but participated in exhibition against Auburn on Jan. 25 and Arkansas on Feb. 1. She competed only on bars during Flor idas 197.65-196.025 win against Auburn, scoring a 9.8. In Floridas 197.575-196.175 win against Arkansas, she scored a 9.85 on Though Bridgette could add depth to the Gators lineup, Faehn wants to be sure she can make the most of the freshmans time at Florida. I dont want to risk her losing a whole year, because she is that talented, Faehn said.
