SARAH LAPPAlligator Contributing WriterUsing an interactive U.S. map thats circulating on Facebook, Time magazine released Americas Mood Map, classifying regions of the U.S. by personality traits. Some Gainesville residents, however, are reacting skeptically to the concept of personifying geography. The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, uses data from thousands of personality tests based on the Big Five Inventory model. openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. Based on the collective test scores, Middle Atlantic and New England states had temperamental and uninhibited tendencies. The South and Midwest had friendly and conventional tendencies. The West Coast, Rocky Mountains and Sun Belt had relaxed and creative tendencies. But Amy Panikowski, a 34-year-old UF geography doctoral student, said the model leaves out some aspects that can shape regional personality. Considering urban versus rural geogence, she said. The mood map is overgeneralizing regions and not accounting the spatial factors. Cody Starling, a 23-year-old UF history senior, disagreed with the map entirely. He explained stereotypes change with personal experience. Before I went to New York City, I saw people as being stuck-up and not willing to help. Things changed when I went there. They were really friendly and helped me with directions, Starling said. in UFs sociology department, said shes hesitant the statements are overly broad. Pieces like this are interesting, she said. Theyre intellectual curiosities, but to make judgments about regions I just dont know how you could do that with only a Big Five inventory.State map gets personalLIFESTYLE ALEXANDREA DACOSTAAlligator Contributing WriterWith students cramming for midterms, a new app has launched in the United States to take the edge off studying. On Tuesday, eFaqt announced it had come out with a new version of its Web-based study application. Students with the app will notes and create mind maps. The new version of the app will automatically structure how students should study and let them know when they can take breaks. Christiaan Henny, the founder of eFaqt, said most study apps have one method of studying such viewing into one app. to reach out to students at UF because it is applicable to the majority of courses that UF offers. It enhances your learning quality with super high-speed so you get the results you want, he said. Ellis Starkey, a 20-year-old UF telecommunication major, said she is excited to use the app to I know that I have to get all of my studies done, she said. The idea of having an app that will help me pace my studies and help me learn will be really helpful. Henny, who runs the app out of Amsterdam, said he hired a study coach when he was having his own problems studying in college. I was inspired by all of the research on studying, Henny said. I thought it would be great if I could put all of the studying techniques I learned into one app. Students will be able to upload PowerPoint presentations, class handouts, articles and text. Researchers on the other end will then develop questions and help the students structure their studies. Although the basic eFaqt app is free, Pro eFaqt will cost $2.99 a month, Henry said.

All dogs must have proof of rabies vaccination and must be spayed or neutered to enter the park. We want to spread awareness that spaying and neutering actually saves lives, said Sandi Richmond, executive director of No More Homeless Pets. Leigh Markowitz, a 19-year-old UF English sophomore and president of Gators Assisting Pets, the organization sponsoring the event, said the events goal is to raise $2,000. Contests include scariest costume, funniest costume, best pet-owner look-alike and best trick.Students must stay disciplinedwere live, they couldnt, she said. They can replay it until they fully understand and then ask questions in class. Even as a supporter of the model, Sitharam acknowledges there is improvement to be made to ensure students watch lectures. Without my whole class watching, I have out a foundation, I cannot teach the entire class together. For the system to work, Sitharam said, students must be disciplined. I had one student who came to me and told me it was too much work, and she didnt like it at all, she said. I also had one kid who basically took charge of his own learning, which was the idea behind this at the beginning. John Corring, a 26-year-old UF graduate student and teaching assistant for Applications of Discrete Structures, is a former student of The thing I liked the most about it was that it encouraged us to explore it on our own, he said. Also, working the problems over in class was sort of like a sanity check. Both Sitharam and Kim plan to try the model again with minor improvements. Sitharam plans to implement quizzes while also formalizing online peer interaction forums to encourage students to watch the online lectures. I am not giving up on it by no means, Sitharam said. I think this should be tried again. FliLIP, from page 1 I was inspired by all of the research on studying.Christiaan Hennyfounder of eFaqt


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5Nathalie Dortonne / AlligatorWrap CityToilet paper hangs from trees in front of Broward Hall on Wednesday. The incident followed pranks pulled in the residence hall earlier this semester that led to security cameras being installed. CAMPUS MELISSA DUKESAlligator Contributing WriterThe Sedoctaves are getting by with a little help from their friends. Although the all-female a cappella group is a registered UF student organization, it is not funded by Student Government, said Alexa Gedigian, business manager for the Sedoctaves. So the group has created an online campaign on to fundraise a trip to Southern Jam, or SoJam, a weekend of workshops and collaboration for a cappella groups across the country. As of press time, the Sedoctaves had $500. Gedigian, a 22-year-old UF public relations senior said in the past, the Sedoctaves executive board did not know the procedure for securing SG funding. She said they now plan to gain access to SG funds by taking the proper steps. Until then, the group has been raising money in other ways like on Indiegogo. Donations will go toward funding the trip to North Carolina State University for SoJam next month. It will also help plan a family weekend, sell merchandise and record an album. We are completely funded by ourselves and our donors and our sponsors, Gedigian said. We keep surprising ourselves with the amount of things were able to accomplish and the little pieces of recognition were able to get based on our hard work. The group has also been attending tailgates before football games to perform for donations.

Kelli White, 18, a UF music education freshman, said the music department is always underappreciated. She said it seems like all the money goes to sports, and people who arent musicians dont understand what is necessary to be successful such as playing on a good piano. Music helps musicians escape from academics and the stress of the real world, White said.

Janis Slean, a festival committee member, said food, jewelry, books, clothing and pottery will be available for sale in the booths, and two stages will showcase various live entertainment acts. The event is a community effort, said Tami Dixon, the festival president. The committees have worked really hard to get the townspeople and businesses involved, she said. The festival will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Last year, the festival won the Top 20 Festival Award for the Southeastern United States. The festival will also offer Gator-themed crafts and clothing. A lot of people dont realize the culture of the university that exists here, Slean said. To come and walk through our town, students will be able to enjoy the arts and to be a part of the community that we all share.Award-winning festival returns to Micanopy ONE IN 10 AMERICANS HAVE SEARCHED ONLINE FOR LOVE. LAUREN YOCKEYAlligator Contributing WriterSamantha Kurzman giggled as she stared at her smartphone, thumbing through her lengthy list of Tinder messages that ranged from the mildly awkward to the blushingly offensive. Oh, God, the 21-year-old public relations senior said. Although Kurzman said she downloaded the relationship app as a joke, online dating for college-educated 20-somethings has become especially common, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center. Pews survey found that one in 10 Americans have consulted their computer or cell phone while looking for love. Tinder is one of the top trending tools among college students. It matches users based on location and interests listed on their Facebook pages. Comlike a slideshow. If users are mutually interested, they are allowed to message each other. Its funny to see how many people are actually using the app, Kurzman said. Adriana Di Graziano, a former campus representative for the DateMySchool website and app, said the site is one of the safest and most effective networking site for students. Instead of scrolling through strangers, students can look for a study buddy or a lifelong partner, she said. Its just a way to get into communication with other college students, said the 20-yearold public relations sophomore. Risks aside, both Di Graziano and Kurzman said they witnessed long-term success stories that started with virtual conversations. It turns out theyve met really cool people, Kurzman said. But another issue is the privacy of personal information, UF social media specialist Bruce Floyd said. Anything that youre reporting on Facebook is being leveraged by this new platform to connect you to another person, Floyd said. I would read through the terms of service and be aware of exactly what youre releasing and what their intentions are with that content. Floyd also encouraged students to meet in public places if they choose to go on a date with other Tinder users. Just be careful, he said.

We want all our Gators to be safe.Bruce FloydUF social media specialist CHRISTINE FLAMMIAAlligator Contributing WriterA new study shows vegetarians might have a lower body mass index than meat eaters, but UF experts are skeptical. The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics published a study online that surveyed the diets and BMI of more than 71,000 subjects with an average age of 59. The different diets ranged from nonvegetarians to strict vegetarians. Linda Bobroff, UF foods and nutrition professor, said she thinks the term strict vegetarians refers to people who dont eat any animal-based foods. The study said each subject ate about 2,000 calories a day. Nonvegetarians had the highest BMI, while strict vegetarians had the lowest, according to the study. But Neil Rowland, UF psychology department chair, said just considering the level of meat in a diet is not strong enough evidence to determine a relationship between eating meat and a high BMI. Exercise is another component that should be considered. However, he said, he doesnt think lowering meat intake is a bad idea to lose weight, but just cutting one food group is not enough to lose weight and maintain it. You really have to think about a lifestyle change, he said. Soohyoun Ahn, UF assistant professor of food safety, said she thought the study was interesting but a little biased and risky because it didnt account for subjects exercise habits or what types of meats they ate. Bobroff said restrictive diets often cut out nutrients like iron, calcium and vitamin D. She said she is concerned with young college students who follow these limiting diets. You really have to know what youre doing to put together a healthful diet, she said.Vegetarian diet lowers BMI We are completely funded by ourselves and our donors and our sponsors.Alexa Gedigianbusiness manager for the Sedoctaves

Kids of immigrants deserve affordable edImagine you were born the son or daughter of undocumented workers. It starts in school. You hear it from your friends, from the news and in textbooks illegal immigration is ruining this great country. Illegals take jobs away from hardworking Americans who need the work. After all, they must be doing something wrong: If they really want to be here, they should just go the legal way and get their green card. Then you go home to your parents, who work grueling hours for less than the already unliveable minimum wage. It doesnt make sense. But you keep working hard so you can get a good job and make the most of the opportunity given to you by your parents who risked it all so you would have a better life. But, as a youth sin papeles without papers the American Dream can quickly become a nightmare. Even with hard work in high school, dozens of extracurriculars and exceptional grades, college can be unattainable. Citizens living in Florida and attending UF get a pretty fordable colleges, costing in-state students an estimated $6,270, according to the Student Financial Affairs website. state students should add $22,278 to their tuition, almost quadrupling their tuition costs. In fact, that extra cost more than doubles their total cost of attendance. Undocumented students, then, face a unique struggle. They can live in Florida nearly all their lives, just like most students at UF, but still be charged out-of-state tuition. But their predicament cannot be compared to even other outtheir parents face the challenge of getting jobs offering a liveable wage. Thats why UF needs to offer undocumented students in-state tuition. If UF is committed to a diverse university, they will implement tuition equality. Last year, a memorandum called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, was passed. DACA provides protection for undocumented people under the age of 31 who arrived in the U.S. before 16. Another requirement: pursuit or receipt of a high school diploma or GED. Individuals must also have a clean criminal record. While that is only a minor protection, its a step in the right direction and represents an ideal legalization for all. With these sorts of programs beginning, UF should lead the way in making opportunity equally accessible for all students. Florida International University has already proven this tuition structure works. Because undocumented students dont have access to federal aid like Pell Grants or other aid like Florida Bright Futures, DACA students are given partial tuition waivers that make college affordable. The same should happen at UF, setting an example as universities nationwide. This precedent could ripple across the state and country and help make college attainable. The only thing that needs to happen is for UFs Board of Trustees to vote on the measure. If they approve, tuition equity will be a reality for students here. Its that simple. Its up to the students to make sure administration knows this is important. Undocumented students dont have to face this undue economic burden to achieve their education. Its just another disadvantage imposed on them that can easily be removed if you speak up. After all, theyre students, just like you. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His column runs on Thursdays.I want to believe: Alien conspiracy theory is alive and wellOut of all the mythical creatures and monsters, aliens have to be the scariest. Vampires, werewolves and mummies are nothing more than folk legends, and Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster are ever-elusive. But aliens? There are so many unknowns, alleged governmental scaly-skinned beasts. Its the stuff of nightmares. Of course, not everyone shares this negative view of extraterrestrials were looking at you, Steven Spielberg. Earlier this year, the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure culists, military personnel and politicians regarding the existence of extraterrestrials.

His documentary Truth Embargo is slated to come out later this year. Corbell told VICE, I no longer have the luxury of disbelief. Humanity is being engaged by non-humans whether our minds can handle that fact or not is an open question. The realization that we are not alone is only the beginning. If youd been witness to the testimony at the Citizen Hearing, its pretty compelling evidence for an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. No matter the compelling evidence, the whole alienconspiracy scene is still too much of a fringe element to be taken seriously hence, its coverage in VICE. Besides, as Neil deGrasse Tyson said to Business Insider in July, if complex beings hypothetically did exist outside of Earth, maybe they want none of us lowly, simple humans.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Next year in Jerusalem. Jews all over the world recite those words at the end of Yom Kippur each fall and then again at the end of the Passover seder each spring. Year after year after year. As a Reform Jew, I do not believe next year in Jerusalem means buying a plane ticket to Israel. In my mind, Jerusalem, the Holy City that Jews longed to return to for millennia, is a metaphor for a better world. Yet, Jerusalem is more than a metaphor. Jerusalem is a real place where real people live, and for too long that place has fallen far short of the lofty ideals it is supposed to represent. its holy sites are at the heart of the decadeshas so tarnished the citys image that today, Jerusalem is not the symbol of hope we all want it to be. Over the past few weeks, there have been reports that the most recent negotiations between the parties, painstakingly put together by Secretary of State John Kerry, have accelerated. Both sides have publicly expressed support for a two-state solution sides, which few Israeli or Palestinian leaders have been willing to publicly endorse. Chief among these tough In May 2009, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people, a city Meanwhile, the Palestinians are just as adamant that Al Quds (the Arabic name for Jerusalem) be the capital of the new state of Palestine. There will be no peace without Jerusalem, no state without Jerusalem and no security or stability without Jerusalem, President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas said in June. Nevertheless, peace in Jerusalem and the entire region remains possible. With both parties laying claim to the city, most experts agree that a lasting peace re the Israeli capital would be in West Jerusalem, while Al Quds the Palestinian capital would be in the East. In many ways, and despite rhetoric to the contrary, Jerusalem is already a divided city. The Jerusalem of today is home to about 500,000 Jews, 281,000 Muslims, 15,000 Christians and 4,000 people of other groups. The neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, home to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, came under Israeli control in 1967 (along with the rest of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip). Today, the vast majority of people who live in West Jerusalem are Israelis, while almost all Palestinian residents live in the East. The economic, social and cultural lives of the two districts are largely isolated from one another. Of course, one ought not underestimate how wrenching it will be for both parties to accept only partial control of the city. To many, it will be devastating. The Old City of Jerusalem sits on the border of East and West Jerusalem and is home to the Western each among the holiest religious sites in the world. Both peoples histories and national narratives are deeply tied to what is one of the most ancient cities on Earth. As former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert put it, There wont be peace if part of Jerusalem does not become the capital of the Palestinian state. In 2008, Olmert negotiated with Abbas on that principle. He was willing to agree, as Netanyahu must, that the Palestinian neighborhoods of East Jerusalem become the capital of the new state of Palestine. In turn, Abbas knows West Jerusalem must remain the capital of the state of Israel. The compromise will not come without complications. Arrangements must be made throughout the city. And all religious groups Jews, Muslims, Christians and even others must be able to administer and access their holy sites in the Old City. The details will have to be ironed out, but the outlines of the solution are clear to all. Israelis, Palestinians and Americans must reach out together for the solution for the heavens knowing that only if we do so will Jerusalem once again be that symbol of a better world in which peace and justice are the rule, not the exception. With the clock ticking on the negotiations, now is the time to make the tough choices and turn the two-state solution into reality. Ben Schwartz is a writer for the Johns Hopkins News-Letter.

Chop up, measure and divide food into Ziploc bags or Tupperware to make it easier to grab-and-go. This will decrease your chances of making rash decisions at the vending machine or gas station. 2. Eat every three to four hours: Whether its a snack or meal, timing your food intake is essential to increasing your metabolism. Starving your body causes you to store fat. 3. Hydrate: Drink 8 ounces of water with every snack and meal to satiate and keep the stomach feeling full. Water is also a vital component in digestion and bowel movements, so drink up.4. Snack slow: Learn to savor every bite. It takes your brain 20 minutes to realize your stomach is full, so the slower you eat, the less chance there is of overeating. 5. Proper nutrient combo: Include more than one macronutrient in your snacks. Combining a protein, fat and carbohydrate with every snack will slow down the breakdown of the food, allowing the body to better digest and absorb each individual macronutrient. This will also help keep you feeling fuller longer. 3 hardboiled egg whites remove the yolk (approximately 21 grams) 1 serving whey protein shake (approximately 25 grams) 2 cheese sticks (approximately 8 grams) Quest Nutrition protein bar (approximately 20 grams) 1 cup nonfat cottage cheese, mix in 1 packet Truvia and 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (approximately 15 grams) 2 tablespoons hummus (approximately 14 grams) 1 tablespoon all-natural almond butter or peanut butter (approximately 6-8 grams) (fat source is included in cheese; approximately 10 grams) (4-10 grams) 12 almonds (approximately 7 grams) 6 to 8 carrots OR red or yellow pepper sliced (approximately 10 grams) 1 brown rice cake (approximately 14 grams) 1 cup sliced cucumber or 4 celery stalks (approximately 4 grams) (20-25 grams) 20-25 blueberries or raspberries (approximately 5 grams)Protein Snack Option 1 2 3 (vegetarian) 4 (on-the-go) 5 (sweet tooth) Fat Carb


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit: Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Why is it so much weirder to hear your roommate masturbate than have sex? Dear Mediocre Advice, I really want to bone this guy who is incredibly well-endowed. Id go as far as saying its that of a baby arm or elephant trunk. Theres a catch, though. He wants a relationship. I really dont want to be committed to anyone, but Im so horny that I could explode at any moment. What do I do?! Dear Friend, Masturbating is not something to be ashamed of, but its kind of like going to the movies alone or ordering an entire pizza by yourself. Sure, youre still having fun, but it would probably be more fun if there was another person in the mix. For some reason, doing things alone is genone pizza, movie and the extra fun stuff thats called Monday. Dear Friend, Dont try to date someone you know youre not into especially if its just for sex. Youll just end up hurting his feelings and make it miss out. Boning your man-friend is kind of like having Taco Bell. It seems like a great idea when its past 2 a.m., but when you wake up the next morning all youll feel is regret. You dont want Taco Bell or a clingy guy. THE MOVIE ENCOURAGES US TO PURSUE OUR DREAMS. JOE MORGANAvenue WriterMy dream ended in seventh grade. The warning signs popped up repeatedly for three or four years years old: I was never going to play third base for the Atlanta Braves. Reality set in when I got only one nal year playing baseball. Strikeout after strikeout told me it was time to swing at something else. After some soul searching (read: growing up), I decided I loved to write. Whether Im any good is really up to you or whoever decides to employ me down the road. The harsh but necessary lesson I learned nearly nine years ago is the same heart-breaking lesson Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) learns in Disney-Pixars Monsters University, available on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday. From a young age, our green, oneeyed hero has his heart set on becoming a scarer. For those of you unfamiliar with ous and heartwarming Monsters, the human world to scare children and harness their screams for energy to power the monster universe. However, Mike just isnt a very scary guy, and the admirable hours and energy he puts into studying and learning the ins and outs of scaring do not do him much good. On the other end of the spectrum is James P. Sulley Sullivan (John Goodman), a monstrous creature with no work ethic. The son of famous scarer Bill Sullivan, Sulley expects to coast through his days at Monsters University on his name alone. Mike and Sulley quickly become rivals, and their animosity boils over into a standoff that gets them removed from the scaring major by ridiculously excellent Helen Mirren, who infuses the character with a chilling vibe. Exiled from pursuing their dreams, Mike and Sulley set aside their differences to join Oozma Games. Should OK (The groups Were OK! chant made me laugh.) win the competition, Hardscrabble would aljors. What follows is a laugh-out-loud, family-friendly take on Revenge of the Nerds (1984) that includes some legitimately jarring plot developments. Director Dan Scanlon did not give ing, and the choice is outstanding. Even though Mike does not get what Its a tough message to tackle, eswith children. When I thought of my baseball dream growing up, I was convinced I was the exception to the one in a million rule. So did Mike, and thats OK. Life doesnt always turn out the way we hope, but there is happiness to be found in pursuing our dreams Monsters University is not as profound as Up or Toy Story 3, but the message hits home. Other thoughts: funniest character. Outstanding lines, even better comedic timing. Pixar has one of most interest making, and the bonus features do an excellent job of giving you an inside look. I recommend the Paths to Pixar: MU Edition.Baseball, dreams and the message behind Monsters University


MICHELLE JACKSONAvenue WriterFrockets, or T-shirts with a faux pocket sewn onto the front, are saving the world one minutely stitched monogram and chevron-patterned pocket at a time. Since February, a UF student has been designing customized T-shirts to raise money for a different charity each month. Ive always been raised to give back because Ive been blessed with so much, so its like Ive always felt the need to give in some way, said Lindsie Herring, a 21-yearstarted Sweet Southern Tees as a way to help out with Dance Marathon. Although Herring did not participate in the fundraiser as a dancer, she still wanted to raise money. After seeing how popular pocket shirts were becoming, she decided to try making them for herself at a competitive price, giving a portion of the proceeds to charity. Herring already knew how to sew and embroimarket the product. After Herring started marketing the shirts through Facebook, the number of orders she she would sell mainly to locals. However, once her product was on the Internet, she started getting orders from other states and even other countries, including Korea and Canada. It was at a steady pace in the beginning, she said. But after we started doing random sales and giveaways, it really took off. People will share it and like the page to get the discount or giveaway or any other contest. Herring said during one promotion, the number of followers on Sweet Southern Tees Instagram account doubled. It started out with 500 followers in the morning and ended the day with more than 1,200 followers. She divides the work long-distance with her mother, Judith Herring, who helps with sewing and embroidering. Although she said she had no idea exactly how many T-shirts they sold, she estimated it was more than 1,000. Over the past year, Sweet Southern Tees raised varying amounts for a different charity each month. The business has supported Autism Speaks, Compassion International, American Red Cross, the Wounded Warrior Project, Give Kids The World Inc. and Stop Childrens Cancer Inc. For October, it will focus their designs and donations toward breast cancer research. Judith Herring said breast cancer is a cause close to her heart. She has lost one aunt to breast cancer. Another aunt and two of her cousins survived breast cancer after undergoing double mastectomies. Its been very much in our history, and I could well have it one day, too, or so could Lindsie, Judith Herring said. With it being in our family like that, its a special cause for us. Lindsie Herring said she knows the trend of pocket shirts may not last forever, so she is always looking into the future to see what other products they can sell. She plans to launch a website for the company soon. It makes me feel good that Im not just self, but Im able to help other people, she said. I think it makes other people feel better about buying it, too. They can feel good about not only getting a shirt but helping other people, too. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 Courtesy to the AlligatorTelecommunication junior Lindsie Herring, 21, right, poses with her mother, Judith Herring, left.

COURTNEY NACHLASAvenue WriterKoalas are an iconic part of Australian culture, but a new study reveals that the countrys lack of koala protection may result in a dramatic loss of the population. The University of Sydney recently published a study concerned with a massive loss of koalas in Australia due to climate change. The study led by Dr. Matthew Crowther seems quite sound, honing in stress and dehydration, said Karen Kainer, associate professor of tropical forestry at UF. The current amount of shady trees, koalas main hideout from rising temperatures, isnt enough to save them from extreme climate change, according to the study. Crowther and his team followed 40 koalas, but a quarter died after a massive heat wave in 2009, according to the study. The outcome of his research showed the koalas would use eucalyptus trees as a food source during the night and would seek shadier trees, like belah and kurrajong varieties, during the day. The Australian Koala Foundation has called for the federal government to take action by listing the koala as vulnerable under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. The foundation also aims to create a true protection for the koala habitat. The act, drafted in 1999, is the Australian governments main environmental law, according to the Australian governments website. Humans have a right to basic necessities, like food and shelter, said Aline Yonezawa, a 20-year-old UF biomedical engineering senior. Animals should have the same right. Deforestation has stirred a fear for these furry creatures due to the lack of trees the koalas have to protect themselves from intense heat. Timber contractors are permitting the massive destruction of trees that results in a lack of food and shade, in addition to the injuring and deaths of koalas. There could be more people who address the consequences of things like deforestation, Yonezawa said. We need to raise awareness.Koala bears hurt by heat HIS IMPRESSIVE WORDPLAY SHINES THROUGH HIS LATEST SINGLE. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAvenue WriterGuess whos back, back again? Shady is back, and he is dominating the hip-hop world 14 years after he released My Name Is. Controversy-inspiring rapper Eminem released the third single from his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 on Oct. 14, and the track has drawn rave reviews. The track is appropriately named Rap God. which features heavy instrumentation that samples Billy Squier and is inspired by the Beastie Boys, Rap God relies solely on Eminems rapping ability over a repeated beat. The focus is clearly on Eminems wordplay, which is impressive enough to make poets reconsider their career choices. dominating the rap game since the Clinton administration as if we needed reminding and proceeds to make a rather crude remark about a particular Clinton White House intern. that the real Slim Shady is back, cracking jokes at pop cultures expense. In the second verse, Eminem puts himself in line with fellow rap gods such as N.W.A. and Tupac Shakur, saying they taught him, and now, he is leading a new generation of rappers. But dont think that just because he claims to be a new rap god, hes going to take it easy on other members of the industry. In the third verse, Eminem ridicules rappers Fabolous and Ray J for the feud they had, but the joke is overshadowed by the most stunning part of the track, which follows soon after. With the intro, Lyrics coming at you at supersonic speed, Eminem launches into a 15-second free-for-all in which he raps about 100 words nearly seven words a second. If anything could prove that Eminem is a superhuman, it would be this verse. Its nearly impossible to process the words that quickly, let alone try to emulate him. But naturally, it would not be an Eminem song if it did not elicit a controversy.The rapper says several homophobic slurs throughout the song, which has caused some critics to condemn the song. Eminem is no stranger to being labeled a homophobe it was a common criticism early in his career. He has yet to make a statement about the lyrics to Rap God. Eminems new track channels the essence of what made him the most popular rapper of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Eminem returned to the rap scene with 2009s Relapse, but the upcoming The Marshall Mathers LP 2 due out Nov. 5 marks the return of Slim Shady.Real Slim Shady stands back up It was at a steady pace in the beginning. But after we started doing random sales and giveaways, it really took off.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13Alejandro Saenz / Alligator StaffLights and LettersMarcel Everett, a 17-year-old producer and electronic musician under XXYYXX, performs at the Reitz Union on Oct.17. ANGELA SKANEAvenue WriterYour time until Halloween is dwindling. All those elaborate costumes you dreamt up in class are now seeming less and less possible. There are still a few simple costumes you can pull together to avoid recycling last years ensemble. Wednesday Addams This one is super simple. A black button-down shirt and black skirt are likely already in your closet or one of your friends. Throw them on, braid your hair, and you are good to go. If you are heading out to Midtown or downtown, this costume is practical and comfortable. You wont have to deal with any pesky accessories that youd lose any way. Rosie the Riveter Since denim shirts are in style this season, you probably already have what you need for this costume, too. A jean shirt and a bandana with any shorts will have you looking like the poster woman of World War II. Show off those muscles youve been working on at boot camp. Wear red lipstick to dress up this look for your nighttime adventures. Also, be sure to do the signature Rosie pose, Olivia Pope Wear the white hat this year, but dont promample, if someone spills their drink, grab a bunch of napkins, tell them you are there to clean up the mess, and proceed to clean up. Wear a stylish business suit you swore you wouldnt wear again the party store, and you are a gladiator in a suit. Billy Ray Cyrus circa 1990 you. Pull your hair back into a ponytail, and rock an unbuttoned plaid shirt and some chains. Jeans and some comfy footwear will have you ready to sing Achy Breaky Heart all night. Or you can do a duet with Miley. Make sure she keeps that foam Brawny Man mullet do but you really want to wear plaid, go as the chains. Dont shave for a few days before the Halloween festivities begin. This is a fresh take on Brawny Man will trick people into thinking youre creative. Walter White Im thinking this is going to be a common costume this year. All you need are your tighty-whities and a button-down shirt. Grab a pair of reading glasses from the dollar store and get ready to tell people not to cross you. If youre a fan of the show, youll know all the right quotes to use. And, like my mom always says, make sure your underwear is clean.Last-minute costumes have lasting impact LAUREN ADAMSONAvenue WriterTom Odell is a 22-year-old up-and-coming singerpained, sensitive, broken-hearted male whose emotions are so heavy they can only be processed alone, hunched over his instrument. He wears oversized layered shirts, sweaters and jersey jackets (even though he doesnt play sports), skinny jeans and boots. ster scene, especially at Maudes Classic Cafe, at its outdoor courtyard one balmy evening. I can see him singing under the strings of lights his soothing ballads the perfect backdrop to a good book and a hot cup of tea. Odells debut album, Long Way Down, which was cholic lyrics accompanied by the piano, which once in a while break out into rousing Mumford & Sons-type anthems (sans banjos and beards). Like Taylor Swift, Odell takes an autobiographical approach to songwriting. Another Love is a song on his new album about how all (his) tears have been used up on a girl he fell in love with when he was 16 or 17, and she broke his heart, he told the Daily Mail. Apparently, his inability to have a lasting relationship at 22 is because of a romance he had sometime as a teenager he cant remember. Or maybe it is because he needs new material. My last relationship, I was thinking, Ive got to end this or Ill never write anything, Odell told The Daily Mail. I think I subconsciously put myself in these situations where the girlfriend isnt pleased with me. Im useless as a boyfriend. Thats how I managed to write all these songs. Woe is Odell. Somehow I fail to sympathize with his tragic, self-indulgent attitude toward women. Odells angsty, introspective style of music can also make relationships kind of awkward, he told Glamour magazine, when his friends know whom he is singing about. Well, the worst thing is that a couple of people think that Another Love is about them, he told Glamour magazine. Its weird, people do say, Is that about me? Yet, I doubt the young artist is too concerned, seeing how he put a picture EP, Songs from Another Love, in October 2012. But as with Swift, audiences can relate to the general emotions behind Odells personal lyrics, and as a result, he has shot to popularity. Award, which has previously been given to artistic sucand Adele. Daily Mail said some are calling him a one-man Coldplay. However, just weeks after the win, a critic at the music weekly NME gave Long Way Down a zero-star review, referring to Odell as a poor misguided wannabe. But NMEs scathing review is a little misguided because arent all individuals wannabes? We are not born with predetermined identities. Rather, we mold our identities based on our personalities, our inspirations and our likes, as much as our dislikes. And Odells niche works for him. He may be marketing to it, but theres a demand for his brand of music. He has shaggy, chin-length dirty blond hair, pale skin, He wears fragile and damaged just as smartly as he does that Burberry jacket. I think Odell will probably continue to rise before he falls, and then he will have a long way down. Odell plays up emotional, heart broken rocker status to award-winning success music


14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 NIKO PIFFERETTIAvenue WriterRegina George of Mean Girls loves Halloween, and so do makeup artists but for a decidedly classier reason. Public interest in makeup art seems to spike in late October as Halloween celebrants scavenge for transformative tricks. Prepared with screen captures of Instagram pictures and YouTube videos, curious people tiptoe up to makeup counters some more distressed than others. Looking to create realistically gory zombie costumes, some people can overestimate what it takes to make gashes, exposed muscles and anything else that looks fresh-out-The Hostel. Without latex, acrylic paints and prosthetics, they act like recreating zombie makeup is off the table. But, from a professional perspective, believe need not buy retail-priced special-effects products. You might not have to buy anything. Simple Halloween makeup is easier to accomplish than a typical beauty routine (i.e., wear your dark circles with pride), and it doesnt require many more supplies than the contents of your makeup bag: red nail polish and lipgloss, foundation, powder, bruise-colored matte eyeshadows, tissues and, most importantly, falseeyelash adhesive. Duo false-lash adhesive is latex-based and can be used for more than fastening falsies. Used as described in the graphic, some of your makeup mainstays are a convenient alternative to the industry-level products in some of my favorite Halloween YouTube videos. Petrilude (@jitsyplaven on Instagram) has a useful series of Halloween tutorials that are zombie should follow: Dont apply the lash adhesive/ tissue combination to any surface where it might adhere to hair, and moisturize the skin prior to applying.Try scarily cheap makeup tips Apply a thin layer of lash adhesive to the area where you want to create texture. Pull a tissue apart (each tissue is actually two thinner tissues attached), and lay one ply over the area where you want to create texture. Apply a little glue to the top of the ply, and distribute it evenly with a toothpick, emery board, etc. Repeat as needed until the patch is about the thickness of a scab. Let it dry. Once dry, glaze your foundation over the entire patch and set with powder. This is one of the few situations where I recommend using disposable sponges and powder puffs to apply your product. Deposit matte black or dark purple eye shadow to the center of the patch, and blend it to acquire red eye shadow, so instead, use a blush as your red source. The center should be the darkest part of the patch. Now, rip open the center of the patch and pull the tear in whatever way is needed to create the shape of wound, lesion, etc., you want. Dab red nail polish onto the frayed tissue. Add some black nail polish to the tips of the frayed pieces for a grizzly, charred look. Be warned that nail polish can sometimes irritate the skin, so be sure to test a small area of your skin beforehand. Apply a generous amount of red gloss to the exposed skin in the ripped center of the patch. Duo Adhesive is sold in a water-soluble formula and a waterproof formula: It isnt necessary to use the waterproof version for this look, and doing so may be more trouble than its worth. Be sure that you dont use Duo if you have a latex allergy. Easy Facial Wounds

Read the story online at defender honoredFlorida center back Karina Gutsche was named to Top Drawer Soccers National Team of the Week on Tuesday. Gutsche leads UF in minutes played. Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffFlorida offensive lineman Tyler Moore (73) attempts to block Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam (52), who leads the nation with nine sacks and 13 tackles for a loss, during the Gators 36-17 loss against the Tigers on Saturday at Faurot Field in Columbia, Mo. The UF offensive line surrendered six sacks to Missouri. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24Since arriving at Florida, coach Will Muschamp has strived to establish a power-running offense that can dominate the line of scrimmage. Now halfway through his third season with the Gators, both the offensive and defensive lines have struggled to maintain that identity. Against Missouri on Saturday, the Gators (4-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) allowed the Tigers to gash them for 205 yards on the ground. While the defensive line struggled, Florida could not get any protection on offense, allowing Mizzou to sack quarterback Tyler Murphy six times. First year, we were a little, you know, handcuffed, as far as where we were and what we were trying to do, Muschamp said. But certainly this year, I felt like that we would have played a little better at this point. Florida shook up its starting offensive line in Columbia, Mo. Sophomore D.J. Humphries, who tackle, sat out the opening drive. Instead, Muschamp played redshirt junior Max Garcia on the outside. Garcia had spent most of the season at left guard. In Garcias place on Saturday was redshirt senior Kyle Koehne, who has been praised for his ability to play multiple positions on the line. But on Wednesday, Muschamp emphasized the need to nail down the starters on the line. and let those guys play, he said. Right now. Muschamp said he expects Humphries to be among those job may be in danger. Redshirt sophomore Tyler Moore struggled against Missouris pass rush on Saturday especially when he was matched up against defensive end Michael Sam. Muschamp said he would try to get Trenton Brown some reps. Brown, a 6-foot-8, 361-pound lineman who transferred from Georgia Military College, has been listed as the second-string right tackle since the start of the season. Muschamp said freshman Octavius Jackson may also get a chance to see some action on the Were better than what we weeks, Muschamp said. But while the offensive line is underperforming, the defensive Florida struggling to win line of scrimmage on both sides of ballSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 19 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickThe list of season-ending injuries continues to grow for the Gators. Linebacker Jeremi Powell, a key player on special teams, will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL during Floridas 36-17 loss to Missouri last Saturday. Powell, a freshman, sustained the non-contact injury when he planted his leg and got caught in the turf during a punt-block attempt. So unfortunate for him, coach Will Muschamp said of Powell, who had four tackles in seven games this year. Hes a guy who was really emerging, special teams-wise. Powell is the fourth Gators player to suffer a torn ACL and the eighth to suffer a season-ending injury this year. He joins receiver Andre Debose (torn ACL), linebacker Matt Rolin (torn ACL), offensive tackle Chaz Green (torn labrum), cornerback Nick Washington (shoulder), quarterback Jeff Driskel (broken leg), defensive tackle Dominique Easley (torn ACL) and running back Matt Jones (torn meniscus). Its just one of those years, Muschamp said. Its unfortunate, and its part of the game. Youve got to coach through it and youve got to play through it. We dont make any excuses around here. The Gators, though, are optimistic about the progress of another injured Powell. Another Gator out for yearSEE NOTES, PAGE 19FIRE JOE MORGANLast night, I watched a World Series alligatorSports editor and Boston Red Sox fan Phillip Heilman convinced me to overcome my annual baseball bitterhelped. But before last night, I hadnt watched a World Series game since 1999. Fourteen years ago, the New York Yankees crushed the dreams of an eight-yearold boy in Valdosta, Ga., by sweeping the Atlanta Braves in four straight games. Since then, the Braves have not returned to the Fall Classic. Until they do, watching it just hurts. Its torture. Sure, Id see highlights of the game on ESPN the next morning or come across updates on Facebook and Twitter while games were going on, but I always tried to shut it out. Watching just reopened the wounds I suffered back when the Braves were bounced. (Damn it, Fredi! Just release the Kimbrel!)

Each guy was consistently great, but only won one title. tims of Carlos Beltrans postseason awesomeness in 2004. Watching the rounds following Atlantas elimination was especially maddening when the team that ousted my beloved Bravos won the National League pennant. League Baseball in 1999, the teams that beat the Braves thankfully only reached the World Series in 2001, 2005 and 2010. I still havent forgiven those Diamondbacks, Astros and Giants teams. Had I been around for the disappointments in the 1990s, I dont know what I would have done to cope. Kirby Puckett and Jack Morris haunt my dreams. (Also, I have burnt John Wetteland and So forgive my anger when I see Luis Gonzalezs hit game-winning bloop single against Mariano Rivera replayed every year. When the Steve Bartman incident occurred, I viewed it as the Cubs simply getting what they deserved for ruining my October. Roger Clemens got busted for performance-enhancing drugs?

If I sat here and told you what Id trade for Atlanta to win another World Series, you would lose respect for me. respond to Atlantas postseason failures in a mature manner. But if the Red Sox or the Cardinals bring in their closer for a twoinning save with elimination on the line, I swear Muschamp expects redshirt junior linethe Missouri game, to return to practice next week after the bye week and play against Georgia on Nov. 2. Hes been unable to do anything thus far this week, Muschamp said. Hes been running, but just not ready for the change of direction and taking on blocks. But I think After sitting out last weekends game with a head injury he suffered against LSU on Oct. 12, defensive tackle Damien Jacobs is also expected to face the Bulldogs. Right now, I would say yes, Muschamp said. But I felt like he was going to play last week. I really didnt know until  Thursday  practice he was not going to be able to go. Redshirt junior quarterback Tyler Murphy played against Mizzou with an injured shoulder but will not throw in practice this week. has missed the past four games, is still not ready to return to practice. Senior linebacker Darrin Kitchens missed Saturdays game with a shoulder injury, but the team has yet to evaluate him. Kitchens is spending time with his family, as his wife gave birth to a girl Monday night. Tale of the Taylor: After freshman running back Kelvin Taylor racked up 53 rushdown that cut Mizzous lead to one score late in the third quarter Saturday, the Gators shied away from the run on their next drive. The result was three incomplete passes from Murphy and a three-and-out. Following his impressive drive, Taylor saw only one more carry. Muschamp regrets not giving more touches to Taylor, who had the hot hand, in the fourth quarter. It became a two-score game in the fourth quarter and we felt like we needed to pick up the tempo of the game a little bit as far as creating some plays, Muschamp said. We probably got away from that a little early. We did. In Pease he trusts: The Gators are 106th out of 125 FBS teams in total offense and 103rd in scoring offense with 21.1 points per in those respective categories. But when asked about Brent Pease on Wednesday, Muschamp gave the seconddence. Yeah, this is the same staff that came a game away from playing for a national championship, OK, Muschamp said. So obviously, were not where we want to be right now, and nobody knows that more than our staff. line is trying to just stay healthy. Muschamp said on the SEC Coaches Weekly Media Teleconference that the defense had only 13 healthy players last weekend. Linedefensive lineman Damien Jacobs ter suffering injuries against LSU on Oct. 12. Weve got a couple of bumps and bruises, but nothing thats serious, Muschamp said. He said he expects both Powell and Jacobs to return to practice in the next week. The defense has been ailing since losing starting defensive tackle Dominique Easley, surrendering an average of 164 rushing yards in its last three games. Despite Floridas struggles stopping the ground game, the Gators still rank 12th in the nation in rush defense a testament to their early-season dominance. against UF the most by any team to that point defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said the key to the loss was the Tigers ability to physically dominate the Gators near the line. That problem reared its head three days later in Missouri. It was one of those things that kind of trickled down, Durkin said on Oct. 16. We werent winning at the line of scrimmage.
