The survey also found 34 percent of organizations offered more internships this year compared to 2012. Tara Fournier, manager of member engagement at the society, said its more important now than ever before to get an internship because a lot of positions require experience. A competitive job market is one of the driving forces for students to be ships, she said. It does take longer for the student said.

At about 11 p.m. Sunday, Alachua County Sheriffs deputies arrested 31-year-old Tjamal Evoris Peterson on charges of crimes against a public servant, according to an ASO arrest report. While the deputy was driving Peterson to jail after arresting him for an outstanding warrant for violation of probation, Peterson told the deputy he could hire someone to have a person killed for $2,500. He went on to threaten the deputy, saying the deputy would be off duty at some point, but he himself would be on guard all the time. He advised the deputy to be ready. Peterson also made threats to pay another $2,500 to kill another deputy who had arrested him in the past. Once they got to the jail, Peterson told jail staff he was going to pay $5,000 to kill the deputies and said he felt like God, according to the report. The deputy arrested Peterson again then booked him into the jail just before midnight, where he remained as of press time in lieu of a $105,000 bond.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 Ryan D. Jones / AlligatorWere Jammin JENNIFER LEGGETTAlligator Contributing WriterTexting may allow couples at UF to stay in touch more than ever before, but communicating via text is causing many partners to disconnect. The Brigham Young University study, which was published in the Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy last month, found that heavy texting is linked with relationship dissatisfaction in men and women. The researchers studied couples ages 18 to 25 and found that about 82 percent texted each other multiple times every day. According to the study, texting generally had a negative effect on relationships, especially when used as a means of communication for serious conversations. The only instance in which texting had a positive effect was when it was used to express affection. UF psychology professor make sense because partners can miss many communication cues by texting. No matter how fast someone is texting, theyre not going to be able to communicate in the way that they can in person, she said. Mintz said people rely on other forms of communication besides words, like facial expressions, tone and intent, that do not translate into texts. Mintz said more couples are communicating via text for two major reasons: Young adults see it as an appropriate form of communication, and it empowers them to say things they might not say in person. People are emboldened to say or do things in writing that they wouldnt do in person because there is a distance, she said. Mintz said discussing a relationship through written communication isnt always negative. Showing affection toward a partner is positive in any form, she said. Chen Xie, a UF doctoral student who teaches Marriage and Family, said she agrees that texting can have a negative impact on relationships. Texting makes it easier for people to argue a lot, she said. Xie said texting can lead to misinterpretation of messages. People tend to see more negative or bad things through text messages, she said. Giovanna Sutherland, a 19-year-old UF biology freshman, said she thinks texting is probably harmful for relationships because constantly keeping tabs on each other can be tiring. When you get a text message from someone, you just have to answer, she said. Sutherland said texting also allows for misinterpretation, but she only thinks it will increase with couples. Its the easiest way for communication today, she said. You can do it anywhere without being caught. Mintz said there is one key to all healthy relationships: communication. It doesnt matter the age, she said. From college students through 70-year-olds, good relationships are built on good communication.Texting could hurt college relationshipsCAMPUS COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff Writercwright@alligator.orgAs UFs football ranking dropped, so did the ranking of campus sexual health services. UF is No. 15 in the 2013 Trojan Sexual Health Report Card. The rank dropped from No. 12 in 2012 and No. 8 in 2011. The annual survey ranks the sexual health resources available on 140 campuses nationwide. Sperlings BestPlaces, an independent research centers across 11 categories, including hours of operation, availability of condoms and STI testing. Bert Sperling, president of Sperlings BestPlaces, said UFs strong points are the health centers hours six days a week, and the availability of walk-in appointments, information and affordable contraceptives as well as affordable HIV testing. In relation to other schools, other schools are changing their scores as well, Sperling said. The important thing is that youre very consistent in scoring high. I think everyone there at UF can be really proud. Other ranked Florida schools include Florida Atlantic University Boca Raton at No. 24, University of Miami at No. 61, Florida State University at No. 68, University of South Florida at No. 72 and University of Central Florida at No. 82. UF Student Health Care Center spokeswoman Catherine Seemann said the center works hard to provide resources. She said the SHCC follows the Trojan report card and We make sure we have a collaborative campus effort to inform students about as many sexual health prevention and treatment services as possible, Seemann said. Kylie Lacusky, president of UFs branch of Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood, blamed the drop in the rankings on poor sexual education in Florida schools. Theres a lot of ignorance in our age group about sexual health, but it isnt really our fault, the 20-yearold UF history junior said. Florida teenagers are entering adulthood without any practical knowledge of their own anatomy or bodily functions.UF goes down on sexual health list No matter how fast someone is texting, theyre not going to be able to communicate in the way that they can in person.UF psychology professor Top 51.

According to an 11-year survey research project conducted by JAMA Pediatrics and published this month, an increased amount of young men suffer from body image issues and eating disorders. Adolescent boys and young males who focus on muscular development and use unhealthy substances to improve their physique are at a higher risk of weight-related disorders, Roberta Seldman, a UF assistant clinical professor and psychologist, said discussion of body image among men has been a taboo topic in the past. There is pressure within our society for males to be muscoordinator of UFs eating disorders program. She said the media casts images of the perfect physical man rather than focusing on deeper relationships and connections. men, according to the study, because society is more conditioned to associate the disorders with women. Ashley Pleie, a 21-year-old UF nursing senior and personal trainer at Southwest Recreation Center, said her male clients often suffer from body image issues and seek her help.

Cats are available for $10, and dogs are available for $15. All animals are examined, vaccinated and spayed or neutered before adoption. Jane Grantman, the Alachua County shelter supervisor, said the shelter tries to come up with fun ways to get the word out and encourage people to adopt. ative ways for people to think of us when they think of adoption, she said. About half of the animals at the shelter now are fall-colored, Grantman said. She said she hopes the offer will give people incentive to consider the shelter for pets.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Michelle Tulande / AlligatorIcing on the BreakJonathan Ortiz, 19, dances at the Hip Hop Collectives Fall hip-hop jam, Icing on the Break, on Saturday. ALEXANDRA PARISHAlligator Contributing WriterTwo UF students are seeking to end slavery one brushstroke at a time. Free Dove Market, at, is an online art store that sells donated artwork and gives 100 percent of its sales to Love UnVeiled, a ministry that rescues women from slavery and provides long-term care. Suzy Schrimsher, a 20year-old family, youth and community sciences junior, and Melissa Dukes, a 20-yearold public relations junior, founded Free Dove in March 2013 and have donated about $1,500 from sales. The artwork they sell ranges from $10 knitted headbands to $200 canvas paintings and has been submitted by artists of various ages, genders and skill levels. However, most of the pieces contributed have come from UF students, Schrimsher said. Some UF students are also purchasing the pieces featured on the site, like Ashley Kobza, a 20-year-old public relations junior, who said she likes buying items from Free Dove because human trafheart. Its cool to be able to purchase something that can go on my wall, but also something thats also going to a mission that I am extremely passionate about, Kobza said. Schrimsher and Dukes, who are sisters of Kappa Delta sorority at UF, said they ter they attended a Christian conference and heard about how prevalent this issue is overseas as well as in the U.S. We were both heartbroken about it, Dukes said. We knew we wanted to do something, but we didnt know what we could do that was more permanent and long-lasting, so Suzy came up with the idea of starting a website with art on it. Almost all submitted artwork will be sold, and participating artists will be featured in an article on the website. Artists of any background can contribute artwork to the cause by visiting, according to information on the website. Dukes said she and Schrimsher would like to continue Free Dove after college. We are just trying to go where the Lord leads us, Dukes said, And we hope thats in the cards for us. Schrimsher said she hopes Free Dove can put an end to awareness. I hope people realize that slavery is still going on with labor and sex slavery, and that it happens here in the United States, she said. Its not just a foreign issue. LIFESTYLE AGASSY RODRIGUEZAlligator Contributing Writer ing, students might want to check the time before checking out the Starbucks menu. According to a recent article, The best time for your coffee by Steven Miller, people using coffee to raise their alertness may be using it at the wrong time of the day. Chronopharmacology, which studies how biological rhythms and drugs interact, showed cortisol production in the body is directly tied to a persons level of alertness and reaches its peak between the hours of 8 and 9 a.m., noon and 1 p.m., and 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Any caffeine consumption during these hours wouldnt increase alertness levels and could interrupt the persons circadian rhythm. Caryn Barry, a 19-year-old UF business administration junior and a barista at Pascals Coffeehouse, said the morning rush is usually between 9 and 10 a.m., which the article says is after cortisol levels begin receding. Barry said she has noticed people usually order the tallest size they ple are ordering for taste or caffeine. Connor Grill, a 19-year-old UF political science freshman, said he has a cup of coffee every day at around 6 p.m., but he doesnt do it for the taste. I would rather have hot chocolate, he said. But that doesnt make me focus as much. Grill said he only orders coffee with cream and sugar, not any blended or iced drinks. To kickstart the circadian rhythm in the morning, Miller also suggested driving to work with sunglasses off.

How you can help the devastated PhilippinesTyphoon Haiyan hit the Philippines Friday, and details continue to emerge about the storms size and how much relief is needed. According to NBC World News, Typhoon Haiyan affected a total of 9.5 million people across the Philippines and displaced at least 600,000 when it slammed into the countion of Humanitarian Affairs. Typhoon Haiyan could be the strongest storm on record. Although storms that powerful in the Category 4 and Category according to NPR, and its rare they reach their peak strength on land. As it approached one large island in the Philippines, the storm pushed up into a broad bay. That created a 13-foot storm surge that caused widespread devastation at the head of that bay, in the city of Tacloban, NPR reporter Richard Harris wrote. Mountains also wring rainwater out of storms like these. And then theres the wind. So we had a triple whammy, of surge, very high winds and strong rainfall, (climate scientist Kerry) Emanuel says. According to CBS New York, Large areas along the coast had been transformed into twisted piles of debris, blocking roads and trapping decomposing bodies underneath. Ships were tossed inland, cars and trucks swept out to sea and bridges and ports washed away. Photos and reports from the Philippines have revealed the harrowing stories of those killed by the typhoon and the thousands of survivors who lost their homes, possessions, and families and friends. Those left in the aftermath are in desperate need of clean water, food, shelter and medical attention. Though the tragedy is countries away, members of the UF community can and should help. You can donate money to the Philippine Red Cross directly at According to CBS, UNICEF is taking donations to help provide children with shelter, clean water, nutrition and vaccines.

So shines a good deed in a naughty world.Social media is constantly painted as a detriment to the individual and culture at large. But every once in awhile, a project comes along that proves the platforms themselves are not inherently problematic. Such a project recently emerged from Chicago and has received attention from New York Magazine and The Atlantic. The usual approach to relationships is one of privacy. The little acts of kindness, the annoyances and the squabbles go unmentioned to those outside the couple thank God. In a bold move that totally shatters that privacy conthey have on Twitter. While the social media generation to plates and plates of mediocre food these two manage to make over-sharing intimate. This Chicago couple met eight months ago and moved in together in September. Knowing other 20-somethings need a few more role models of modern love, they opened a joint Twitter account where they post succinct descriptions of their arguments once theyve been resolved. @WeFoughtAbout successfully proves that sometimes the little things do cause the big spats. Other real-life couples them feel a little less crazy thanks to this inventive use of social media. Linic and Meyers account reads as a genuine log of a couple navigating new territory together and all the hiccups one may or may not expect. Some seem trivial, like, I asked Alan to delete Bejeweled. Some sound pretty familiar, like, Alan forgot a decision we made and got mad at me for not telling him about it. A few are personal and insightful, like, Claire tried to comfort me and I wouldnt let her. and they dont try to start them either. Because they post promptly after resolution, they give followers a real-time representation of the frequency and intensity of their spats. And you know what? They seem to happen a lot, sometimes multiple times in a day. But because of their honesty, that doesnt feel like a bad thing. Its refreshing to have a wedding-movie plot that just keeps getting recycled. In the movies, whirlwind romances are a staple, but these two are a unique matchup that somehow still represents the everyman and woman. Their arguments arent sparked by grandiose, thematic events and are not pepwaitresses and baby carrots. Not one to be left out, Facebook is home to its fair share of expos accounts, too. There are a myriad of portrait pages spanning cities around the world. The most famous seems to be Humans of New York, which posts pictures of people living their lives captioned with something impactful they tell the photographer. Every post is a cyberwindow into the life of a regular Joe, whether their input is grave or lighthearted. Accounts such as this produced in Paris, Tehran, Copenhagen and other cities offer insight into the lifestyles and turmoil in other parts of the world that would otherwise be inaccessible. Social media has manifested some negative consequencnarcissists. These websites offer people a megaphone for causes that would otherwise not receive one like relationship clarity and global-yet-personal insight. Katie McPherson is a UF English junior.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Response to Hillary Clinton guest columnThe author of the column does not realize that those of us ready for Hillary are not mindless supporters of the political class, but rather citizens simply excited to support the possible campaign of one ing potential candidates this country has seen. The fact that Clinton is a member of a nomenon limited to the Democratic Party, nor is it something new in American politics. The writer suggested that Clintons budding candidacy says that there is no internal debate in the Democratic Party. However, the absence of all out intraparty warfare as seen in the Republican Party does not mean that we in the Democratic Party are apathetic to the issues.

The reason everybody is in 2016 election mode thats old news. Determining whether the Affordable Care Act will accrue new enrollees when Rand Paul is now damaged goods one, nothing else is getting done in the country. More importantly, it will have implications for the upcoming presidential race. The truth is, though this in a few years time this story will be a distant memory even though it has current direct implications on Pauls presidential run. in 2014. The House of Representatives will still be in Republican control, even though Democrats House seats are too safe, and the politicians are too entrenched in their districts. Republicans will face whether Sen. Ted Cruz will run for president. many issues are not being addressed. Immigration on that. a new executive, we still have a current executive.

His column runs on Tuesdays.We have work to do before 2016Column There is a bill moving through the Florida legislature that would allow honorably discharged military veterans to pay in-state tuition. For out-of-state military veterans applying to public universities and colleges in Florida, the bill would waive the one-year standard to establish residency. Military veterans have put their lives on the line to protect Veterans put the country before themselves as they served to ensure our freedoms would never Florida should pass the bill that would give military veterans instate tuition. In the state university system, there are about 2,400 non-resident veterans. The bill would not impact the admissions process, but simply burden of paying for college. The military provides servicemen and women a set of values including dedication, integrity, duty and respect. U.S. vets have proven through their service that they have the tools necessary to be successful. As they put their lives on the line, vets do not only have residency, but for the entire nation. Twenty-six states have already waived the residency waiting time for veterans tuition purposes. Currently in Florida, out-ofstate vets are paying close to three times the in-state tuition cost. and the Collegiate Veterans Society are hosting an event in support of in-state tuition for all military veterans in Pugh Hall at 6:30 p.m. The event will feature outof-state veterans sharing how the passage of this bill would impact them personally. The bill is being sponsored by Sen. Latvala and Rep. Peters.

Its going to be game by game, not saying that youre going to play bad Butler is pleased with the balance her team has shown to start the season.
