FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Nicole Gomez / AlligatorStudents drink coffee and study at Pascals Coffeehouse, two blocks north of campus on Northwest 16th Street. Coffee shops management say business picks up around midterms. MIDTERMS TEND TO INCREASE BUSINESS. NESHA ROBBINSAlligator Contributing WriterAs midterms loom, Gainesville coffee shops tend to get more crowded with students who buy one drink and camp out for hours. But its often more of an annoyance to students than management. Juan Alcala, a manager at Pascals Coffeehouse at 112 NW 16th St. near Midtown, said in the afternoons during exam weeks, it is ofBut like other shops, she said, Pascals embraces the business, noting the coffee shop aims to give students a place to come and study. Yarrow Geggus, a barista at Volta Coffee, Tea & Chocolate at 48 SW Second St. in downtown Gainesville said the shop also experiences more employees dont mind people buying one drink and lingering. It doesnt get overwhelming, Geggus said. Christina Chang, a 22-year-old UF recreation, parks and tourism senior, said she usually goes to coffee shops to study, but she avoids the atmosphere during midterms Everyone is out then, and I cant Jenny Nguyen, a 21-year-old UF recreation, parks and tourism senior, said she would rather go to a coffee shop to study than a library because the atmosphere isnt as stressful.

You can have a conversation if you want to.Local coffee shops not steamed about long-staying studiers KRISTAN WIGGINSAlligator Staff Writerkwiggins@alligator.orgThe United States doesnt have as many highly skilled adults as other countries, but younger generations could break the trend. The Survey of Adult Skills, conducted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, found the U.S. falls short on levels of skilled workers compared to other developed countries. Of the 24 countries surveyed, the U.S. was ranked 16th, and the majority of workers only possessed low-level skills, which include literacy, problem-solving and information and communication technology, according to the study. UF education professor Dorene Ross said many educational factors can affect someones achievement later in life. One of the main problems she saw was the inequality in education due to economics. If you are living in poverty, you are dealing with a wide variety of social and environmental threats that affect the achievement of kids in school, she said. About 21 percent of workand about 13 percent are unstudy. Legislators have been implementing policy changes in the U.S. to aid the job market by attempting to produce better workers. There have been pushes toward vocational schools and incorporating more on-thejob training into learning. Ross agreed education should be improved but said certain policies wont work. The focus on testing and meritbased pay for teachers, in her opinion, isnt the way to go. There seems to be an assumption that teachers and kids are holding back, she said. But teachers are teaching the best way they know how, and children are learning the best way they know how. People with lower skill levels tend be in poorer health, participate less in civic activities and to trust others less, according to the study. Younger generations are less hindered by their socioeconomic backgrounds than older generations. U.S. adults aged 16-65 had the strongest correlation between literacy rates and economic background, but that dropped to about average when looking at 16-24 year olds. Rachel Werk, a 19-year-old UF neuroscience and English junior, said she thinks furthering education could improve someones abilities, but with Its a double-edged sword, really, she said, because were learning all these things at school but not necessarily putting our skills to work.US adults lower skilled than other countriesINTERNATIONAL

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Depression appears to be caused by an imbalance in the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. Antidepressants impact some of these chemicals, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, in an attempt to rebalance the brains chemical makeup. Some of the most comas selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Prozac and Zoloft, and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), like Cymbalta and Effexor. Both medications block the absorption of certain neurotransmitters into the brain, leaving higher around and returning the brain to a balanced chemical state. Doctors diagnose depression through an evaluation of symptom severity and longevity, family history of depression and suicidal ideation. Typically, if patients present long-lasting and severe symptoms, they will be treated with antidepressants. Oftentimes this treatment is supplemented with psychotherapy so the patient can work through life issues, learn how to cope with the illness and manage its triggers. Patients usually have to try several different types of medications in everyone has different brain chemistry and symptomatic complaints. Yet various researchers argue that this trial and error process might be a waste of time for some patients. According to analysis of clinical trial data from the FDA, taking placebo pills improved depressive symptoms almost equally as much as taking antidepressants. The only curred in severely depressed patients. This does not necessarily mean antidepressants are ineffective, however, and these studies fail to take into account a couple of important one, depression is currently overdiagnosed. According to a study done by the International Review of Psychiatry, nearly a quarter of the U.S. population has been prescribed antidepressants at some point. Only about 10 percent, however, actually have a depressive disorder. Doctors often confuse periodic depression brought on by illness, substance abuse, or other factors to be a diagnosable mental illness and pop out the pills. Psychotherapy, light therapy, and exercise can be just as effective in minor cases of depression and should be utilized by doctors more often as treatment. Additionally, as mentioned before, patients typically try several makes them feel better. Clinical trials do not account for this process of trial and error and simply examine the data from each pill without examining each participants chemical makeup or response to other drugs. Maybe some antidepressants are ineffective for some patients, but others are still likely to be helpful for patients who truly do suffer from depression. It is debated whether antidepressants should be used for their placebo effect. On the one hand, the drugs have potential side effects. Suicidal ideation, increased risk of stroke in women and general personality changes are just a few of the possible results. Additionally, antidepressants are often used over a lifetime, which can rack up quite a medical bill. On the other hand, however, if patients truly do feel better and need that reperiod of depression, some doctors argue it is OK to keep prescribing the drugs. Dr. Durga Roy, a psychiatrist at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, said she will sometimes let patients take antidepressants, at least for a brief six-month period, to enhance their mood and boost morale. Sometimes patients will come to me saying they are depressed because a relative just died or some other event occurred and that they need antidepressants, she said. If theyre not at high risk for seizures or stroke Ill let them take the medication to bump their mood. Ive never seen any patients that have had personality changes or that suddenly started having seizures. In an ideal world, clinical trials would study each depressed patient individually and track which antidepressants worked for them and which did not. In this way, researchers could still prove the effectiveness of the drug for certain patients and rule out the possibility that the study participants might respond better to another drug. Since this takes time and money, however, it is not currently a plausible solution. Ultimately, the antidepressantbashing data analysis of clinical trials is inconclusive and unproductive. haps by using a brain scan that measures neurotransmitters or some other method, clinical trials will have to rely on subjective data that simply Megan Crants is a writer for the Johns Hopkins University News-Letter. This column originally appeared on UWire.Placebo effect: Are antidepressants really no better than sugar pills?UWireMegan CrantsUWire Letter to the EditorIts true: Engineers dont really socializeI agree that engineers dont really socialize. What is socializing anyway? According to the Total Frat Move, its about hanging out at run-down Midtown bars or becoming the drunkest people at a NASCAR race. I suppose hanging out in the Formula Car lab until late hours of the night with your best friends is not socializing. How about hanging out at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art talking about the intricate connection between engineering and art? Nah, wine and classical doesnt cut it for a beer pong game. About being the hottest: Since we are talking about the cursory, how would the list look 10 years after graduation? Invariably, some will think being hot is having money; then the list nalism at the forefront. generalize about most journalism majors: Its great to see that the role models at the journalism school are Victorias Secret models and Miss Floridas and not old boring Judith Miller or Maureen Dowd. model for the hottest ones, that is.

CARTER WILL PERFORM SUNDAY IN GAINESVILLE. JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff Writerjglum@alligator.orgAarons Party is coming to Gainesville. Pop star Aaron Carter will perform at High Dive on Sunday. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show which includes The Crazy Carls, The Real Hooks and Brie Goldsobel starts an hour later. General admission tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door, available at, Hear Again Music or High Dive. The Alligator spoke with Carter, a Tampa native, last week. Q: What can you tell me about your tour? A: Its live music. I do all of my hits from the past you know, Aarons Party, I Love Candy, How I Beat Shaq I take all of them, and we do a new show. Q: I think a lot of the people who are going to be coming to your Gainesville concert are probably UF students who remember you from a few years ago. What should they know about you now? A: Well, Ive grown up, you know, and Im 25 years old. Ive been working on my craft, and ... becoming a better singer. So I think that the show really focuses on my talents as a performer. Q: What can people expect when they come? A: They can expect to just come and have a good time. Its live music, and I ... do a lot of the stuff that Ive done before, so its nostalgic for people too. Its nostalgic for me, and its amazing. Its just a really good time. I encourage people to just come out and check it out. BRETT RABINOVICHAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville resident and UF alumnus Frederick Malphurs newest novel, which is now available for sale on Amazon, ties together his experience in veteran affairs and his love for Spanish folklore. A Year in the Life of Dr. Fox, set in a small Mexican cult decision to put loved ones at risk when it comes to drug wars, immigration and economic aid. The book explains violence and corruption, Malphurs said. Illegal drugs are a big problem in Mexico. The novel takes readers to a place theyve never heard of, Malphurs said The strength of family, how active religious organizations are in Mexico as well as good versus evil are issues the main characters deal with throughThe theme of the novel is to provide a contemporary understanding for people who read about big issues and crimes in the area, Malphurs said. I wanted to provide a hero who is based in reality. Malphurs said his passion to write comes from the strength and opportunities that exist in the Gainesville community. Although the inspiration to write this novel came from a trip to Mexico, the supportive atmosphere in Gainesville led him to become an independent, self-published author, Malphurs said. I have learned the hard way that traditional marketing for someone who isnt established doesnt work, Malphurs said. The fact that Gainesville has groups who give me support encourages me to publish books on topics most people havent heard of. Julia Sutton, an 18-yearold UF accounting freshman, said the novel could be of interest to students because of the authors connection to the Gainesville community. Given the number of people who try to get published, Sutton said, its amazing someone close to home achieved it. I would read the book because its an entertaining way to gain an emotional background on an issue students constantly debate about, she said. 8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2013 NATIONAL ANGELA SKANEAlligator Contributing Writer Today is the last day Starbucks is offering a free coffee to generous patrons. Since Wednesday, the coffee chain has been giving free tall brewed coffees to customers who offer to buy a strangers drink. Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, posted a letter Tuesday explaining his pay-it-forward initiative online. Jaime Riley, a Starbucks spokeswoman, said it was inspired by current problems in America and its government. Its an initiative put forth to help show stability and acts of kindness, Riley said. Some students werent aware of the offer but still saw it as a nice gesture. Im always all for that. said Savannah Green, an 18-year-old UF theatre performance freshman. Ive had people pay for me before in Starbucks drive-thrus just as a generosity. Students like Diana Alarcon said its a way to be nice to others and said she would pay for someones drink, even if it was more than hers. I think theres a human element to that, said Alarcon, a 21-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering senior. It opens communication and it promotes having compassion for the person behind you. I think thats something we dont get enough of that human interaction. On-campus Starbucks employees were unable to comment regarding the initiative.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators captainsWill Muschamp announced via Twitter that Tyler Murphy, Solomon Patton, Damien Jacobs and Michael Taylor will serve as captains against LSU on Saturday. Savannah Jordan will train with the U.S. U-18 Womens National Team. Read the story online at ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer @adamDpincusThe loss still stings Ronald Powell. After two years of waiting and wondering if he would get another chance to play in Tiger Stadium, Powell will have his opportunity when No. 17 Florida faces No. 10 LSU on Saturday in Baton Rouge, La. Powell missed the majority of the Gators 41-11 loss to the Tigers in Death Valley during the 2011 season. He suffered a stinger and was forced to stand on the sidelines as Florida dropped its second consecutive game. The loss stands as Floridas worst defeat since Will Muschamp began coaching the team in 2011. It still bothers me today, Powell said. Getting a chance to go back there and perform with the guys I got now is going to be special for me. Powells return to Tiger Stadium coincides with redshirt junior quarterback Tyler MurLSU has won 13 of its last 18 games against top-25 teams in Death Valley under coach Les Miles. That includes two of the Tigers three matchups with the Gators. Murphy was forced to watch as Florida dropped its last game at Tiger Stadium in humiliating fashion. He was a redshirt freshman buried on the depth chart when true freshman Jacoby Brissett completed only eight passes and tossed two interceptions Baton Rouge is a very lively place. Itll be a very hostile environment, Murphy said. As a team, we will have to focus on ourselves and not get caught up in the hype and all Rapper Kanye West and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel reconciled on Wednesdays edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column could not be more relieved. In fact, as the crew watched the pivotal, emotional exchange between West and Kimmel, there were some tears shed. But not a single one of us would Runaway. We considered this exchange a Good Life lesson. Even the most Heartless among us felt their love grow Stronger as we witnessed this spectacle of forgiveness and understanding. On Wednesday night, we felt that All of the Lights went on for us. Clique. Clique. Clique. And to be completely honest, were in the same boat as you, Kanye. When it comes picking college football games against the spread, we consider ourselves geniuses. It may not be politically correct to say that out loud, but if we didnt, we would just be lying to you and ourselves. Wake up, Mr. West, Mr. West, Mr. West! This week, alligatorSports Staff Writers Joe Morgan and Adam Pincus each an American Boy on the verge of Graduation debate the Red River Rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma. The Longhorns (+14) will keep the Sooners love locked down because... Im a genius. While Mack Brown isnt the god he used to be, he will get Texas back to Kanyes pre-Graduation days. Two words for the Red River Rivalry: Johnathan Gray. Hell have a breakout game and keep Brown from becoming a College Dropout.

Guards Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and forward Erik Murphy UFs three top scorers last season have graduated. Thanks largely to that trios success, try, according to, en route to a third consecutive trip to the Elite Eight. Despite several key departures, Donovan does not plan on altering his teams offensive philosophy. Im not comparing this team to the same team, but were in the similar situation as years ago with (Matt) Walsh, (Anthony) Roberson and David Lee leaving. (Corey) Brewer was our leading scorer coming back with [7.5] points per game (in 2004-05), Donovan said. Obviously, that team turned out to be a whole lot better than everyone thought they would be with the departure of those guys. Were in the same situation offensively. Its not about looking for one guy. We have to be a team thats balanced. pass team. We have to be really great at moving and passing the basketball. Last season, the Gators had four players Center Patric Young, who averaged 10.1 points per game on 58.6 percent shooting, is UFs only returning double-digit scorer. UF also brings back guard Michael Frazier II, its best three-point shooter with a 46.8-percent clip. The Gators will look to newcomers, such as freshman point guard Kasey Hill, Rutgers transfer guard Eli Carter after he returns from injury and Virginia Tech transfer Dorian Finney-Smith to pick up where the offense left off.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2013 UF COMPETES SATURDAY.JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126Julie Macedo is ready to run. With top runners Agata Strausa, Stephanie Strasser and Cory McGee getting a week of rest as the womens cross country team travels to Orlando for the Disney Cross Country Classic, Floridas younger team members have an opportunity to compete at the college level. Were training hard and not tapering for this meet, Macedo said. The past few weeks, all of the workouts have been strong, and all of the girls are looking good. Five runners will be competing for the Gators this weekend: Macedo, freshmen Taylor Tubbs and Amber Johnson, junior Macy Huskey and redshirt senior Brittany Koziara. Coach Paul Spangler hopes to see at least one of them step up during the 5K race on Saturday. Spangler is looking to determine who will travel with the team to compete at the Wisconsin adidas Invitational on Oct. 19, the teams last meet before the Southeastern Conference Championships on Nov. 1. You kind of have an idea and you can project OK, where do we stand and how good are we? he said. But youre always looking for that one person to have that breakthrough performance. Youre going to have races where maybe somebody doesnt have the best race, so when you have somebody have an unexpected performance, it can really help out. Macedo has the ability to be one of those top runners. As a true freshman last year, she earned a spot on the SEC All-Freshman team by posting a time of 22:03.55 at the SEC Championships, which was eighth among Florida runners. It was exciting to come in and be able to contribute right away, Macedo said. As a freshman, you dont always expect to travel, and it was a nice surprise. Despite the accolades, the sophomore felt that her performance was subpar. Last season, I actually didnt do that well for my standards, so this year Im looking to improve a lot, Macedo said. I want to be All-SEC, which means top seven. Macedo has competed in both meets for the womens team this season. Western Carolina Invitational on Aug. 30, running the two-mile course in a time of 10:57.89. She placed second on the team and sixth overall at the Mountain Dew Invitational on Sept. 14, posting a time of 21:37.94 on the 6K track almost 30 seconds faster than her time at the SEC Championships in November 2012. Macedo is aiming to keep the momentum going and earn a spot at the Wisconsin adidas Invitational. Im looking to run a personal best, score for my team and do as well as I can Macedo said.Gators preparing to run in Disney ClassicTHE RALLYEach week, two alligatorSports columnists will debate the biggest looming matchup in college football. Today, Phillip Heilman and Adam Lichtenstein preview No. 17 Floridas showdown against No. 10 LSU in Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. Adam: Floridas real schedule is about to start. After playing a mid-major, three Southeastern Conference weaklings and Miami, the Gators are about to enter the roughest stretch of their season. They will play three straight ranked opponents that will make or break Floridas shot for an SEC title, and it all starts on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. The Gators have shown they are a resilient team. They have been without their offensive and defensive leaders for two games, and they have come away with two convincing victories. After Florida marches into Death Valley as the underdog, it will come out with a third. The Gators have shown all season that their defense is an unstoppable force. They havent just limited opposing offenses, they have shut them down. Offenses were completely unable to break through a powerful rush defense or a shut-down pass defense. Although LSU will be the best offense Florida has faced, the defense will rise to the challenge and take down the Tigers. Phillip: Thanks for making my job easy, Adam. played anybody. For as well as the Gators defense has played to this point of the season incredibly considering what it lost from 2012 it has only faced one team that is averaging even mediocre numbers in 2013. And Miami promptly handed Florida its only loss of the season. fense, which is tied for 24th in the nation, is the only team that cracks the top 60 in the country. Toledo is next at 65th. The trio of measly SEC teams UF has lambasted sits 84th, 85th and 91st in the country in total offense. The Gators are in for a rude awakening in Death Valley on Saturday. Led by senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, LSUs offense is far superior than even the Miami its 21-16 win on Sept. 7. The Tigers are scoring an insane 45.5 points per game and accumulating nearly 500 yards of total offense. Even if Florida cuts those averages in half, the Gators will lose by a touchdown. Adam: The Tigers have had nearly as easy of a schedule. Only two teams they faced are inside the top 50 for total defense. TCU the top defense LSU has faced held the Tigers to their second-lowest output of the season. And the Horned Frogs are 32 spots lower than the Gators in that category. Yes, Florida struggled early against Miami, but that was against a team the Gators They play the Tigers every season and are more familiar with the boys from the bayou. And once UF got a chance to settle in against UM, the defense excelled and has not looked back. In the 15 quarters the Gators have played since quarter in South Florida, the defense has allowed 27 points total. Seven of those points came on a 4-yard Miami drive after a turnover, and seven more came in garbage time against Tennessee. Thats absurd. Mettenberger has had a great season throwing the football, but he has not faced a quality pass defense. Florida is No. 6 in the country at defending against the air attack 50 spots higher than LSUs top opponent. This is clearly a game of strength against strength. LSU is great on offense, Florida is all about the defense. And, like the clich says, defense wins championships. Phillip: Since the end of the 2009 season, the Tigers have lost just once at home. Once! And that was last year a game LSU should have won to eventual champion Alabama. It is incredibly rare for the Tigers to be taken out in Death Valley ask the Florida squad that got pummeled by 30 points there two years ago especially without a star quarterback. And guess what? Florida doesnt have one of those. Everything that Tyler Murphy has touched to this point in the season has turned into gold, but Im willing to bet this is the week he becomes a pumpkin. That is not to say Murphy will look as lost as Jacoby Brissett did in Tiger Stadium in 2011, but his numbers are going to take a hit playing in front of the most raucous crowd in the nation. Matt Jones and Mack Brown will continue to is going to put the onus on Murphy to make plays throughout the game. I dont believe he can do it. Murphy found the softest landing spot on Floridas schedule to come in and play well right away. Tennessee sucks. Kentucky sucks. Arkansas sucks a little less. But the fun and games are over. The bullies of the SEC are on their way. Until Murphy shows me something against a real team, I will remain skeptical. If he beats LSU on Saturday, then maybe I will think differently, but thats not going to happen.Who will win the UF-LSU game?

There are just so many unknowns on our team right now. As a coach, because there are the unknowns, you cant just say, OK, youre that guy for us right now. It has to be done collectively as a group.

Murphys insertion into the starting lineup comes with the continued success of a defense that ranks at the top of nearly every statistical category. Despite a season-ending injury to defensive tackle Dominique Easley, the Gators have held their own with Powell, Dante Fowler Jr., Jonathan Bullard and Darious Cummings picking up the slack. and we do our little walk-through, and all that stuff, Fowler said. As soon as I wake up on Saturday, its game time, and Im locked in and focused. Florida is better equipped this time around for LSU. It has a healthy Powell, a blossoming quarterback and a tougher identity three keys missing when the two teams last played in Baton Rouge. Weve got a lot more people that have bought in to what Coach Champ wants to do, Powell said. We got a great coaching staff, and everyand being physical.
