COURTNEY COLEMANAlligator Contributing WriterPeople who remember to grab their daily lattes may remember more in general. A new study from The Johns Hopkins University found caffeine helped boost the memory of 160 participants. The motivation was really something that typically hasnt been studied with the same level of rigor, said Michael Yassa, one of the studys researchers. The researchers discovered that people who were given before they looked at a series of images were more likely to correctly identify the images 24 hours later. Divya Jolly, a 19-year-old UF behavioral and cognitive neuroscience junior, said she was surprised by the results even though shes an avid coffee drinker. I use coffee as a crutch to keep me awake at all times, she said. I keep more alert when Im studying, which helps me retain more. However, Yassa said the implications of the study for students arent all positive. Coffee is taken also to put off sleep or to even pull off an all-nighter and not sleep at all for an exam, he said. Yassa stressed that swapping coffee for sleep can be an ineffective long-term method. That can be detrimental because what we also know from the literature is that sleep is very helpful for memory and that sleep deprivation is very bad for memory, he said.

A recent survey from the American Customer Satisfaction index ranked Internet service providers at the bottom of the barrel compared with other industries, including gas stations, banks and health insurance. In Gainesville, some residents are inclined to agree with the results, and a local ISP offered possible reasons why. Jessica Lennon, a UF advertising junior, said she isnt surprised with the results because shes experienced problems with Gainesvilles most prominent provider: Cox Communications. Ive had some issues with power outages and their service. Theyre helpful when it happens, but it happens a lot, she said, adding that the price is too expensive for college students. Lennon, 22, said she hasnt completely written off the company, but she described her service as mediocre, which the survey provided as a reason for dissatisfaction. The survey stated that, according to Internet users, The ISP industry does not deliver on any aspect of customer service in a particularly impressive fashion. ISPs struggle to keep service interruptions and outages to a minimum. However, Maureen Tartaglione, the manager of government and community affairs for Cox Communications Southeast Region, said that often the issues users run into can be problems with bandwidth, which meaonce. If youre in an area where theres bulk Internet usage, it can affect you, she said.

Tartaglione said that Cox, which uses straight from their building to each resident in their service area, is constantly making the effort to update its system. Were always upgrading systems just because the demand is there for bandwidth, she said.

CAMPUS ALEXIA MARCHETTIAlligator Contributing WriterStudents preparing for the Spring start of GatorNights should note a time change. The Friday night alternative for students will now start at 8 p.m., a change from the previous 6:30 p.m. start time. We changed the time of the event to provide a better experience for the students who come, said GatorNights program coordinator Joshua Wilson. GatorNights, free for students with their Gator 1 Cards, is a series of events on Friday nights in the Reitz Union where students can watch movies, enjoy midnight munchies and take part in interactive art activities. The later time now allows students to come to the event and enjoy all of the perks, said Wilson. Each week, about 1,500 students attend GatorNights. Nicole Lopez, a 19-year-old UF health science sophomore, said she tries to attend GatorNights occasionally throughout the semester. The time change can be a good thing for students still getting out of later classes, she said. GatorNights regular Tatiana Recicar, an 18-year-old UF animal sciences freshman, said she prefers a later start time for the event. I have more time to get to GatorNights because I have class that ends late, she said.GatorNights now LaterNights, will start at 8 HEATHER REINBLATTAlligator Contributing WriterA local organization protested outside a Gainesville-based robotics company Wednesday in response to the U.S. Army awarding the business millions of dollars for drone development. In recognition of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s 85th birthday, the Gainesville Coalition for Peace set out to raise awareness about what members believe is misallocated taxpayer money being spent on military projects instead of community betterment. The protest began at about 11 a.m. outside of Prioria Robotics, located at 606 SE Depot Ave. Participants walked on the sidewalk with signs chanting, Hey hey, ho ho, killer drones have to go. Cassandra Morrison, a tutor at Circle of Love Tutoring Services and a member of the coalition, said the dollars could go a long way in helping members of the community, like students. Many of my (students) are going without, she said. Theyre hungry, and they dont have the skills they need. Morrison said they chose to protest on Kings birthday because it would have been important to him, had he been alive today. This was a man that was against war, and he chose peaceful means to make sure his message got across, Morrison said. Prioria Robotics has tried to reach out to the coalition, said company CEO Bryan da Frota. The group was invited to discuss the issue. But members did not want to participate. In the almost 11 years that the company has been in Gainesville, da Frota said, it has put more than $20 million back into the local economy. The coalition is trying to make it seem as if Prioria is not wanted in the area, he said. But da Frota noted that the residents allowed the company place. The community had a discussion as to whether we were going to be here, and they said yes, da Frota said. I think the city agrees. I think the people agree. However, protesters still think the money could be used elsewhere. Theres literally millions of federal dollars going towards making drones, said UF English sophomore Farah Khan. Money could be going towards working families who arent able to put food on the table. For Khan, the issue is also a personal one. As a Pakistani, she said shes worried about her family living in Pakistan because the country has experienced numerous drone attacks. Its a really dehumanizing process, she said. Prioria Robotics moved into its current loation, a former GRU warehouse on Depot Avenue, in February. It has operated in Gainesville for about 10 years.Locals protest drone development OPEN DATA DAY IS FEB. 22. BRADLEY NORMANAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville now has a one-stop website for residents to access its data. The citys Open Data portal, which the public to access datasets of information, ranging from city budgets to Gainesvilles utility consumption. Becky Rountree, the citys administrative services director, said the app is meant to provide raw data to the public. Theres a wealth of information in (the portal), and it is meant to provide citizens with this data, and they can use the data in whatever way it meets their needs, Rountree said. Data will be uploaded to the portal monthly, quarterly and annually, depending on when information is made available, Rountree said. citys Government 2.0 initiative, which aims to create more government transparency, said City Commissioner Lauren Poe. The initiative is focused on opening up vast amounts of data collected by the government and making it accessible to members of the community, Poe said. Were really excited about this in Gainesville. We have the perfect community to take ownership of the Open Government initiative, Poe said, adding the city is deeming Feb. 22 Open Data Day. Madalina Mottl, a 23-year-old UF telecommunication and political science senior and former intern for U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, said she recognizes both the positives and negatives of the portal. I can see how this would be good for the city of Gainesville, Mottl said. It allows people to be really informed about government spending. However, she said she acknowledges a downside of transparency as well. The negative side of it is that people are not going to like what they see, Mottl said. Some people will just see the front number but not really dig into what the money and City launches open data websitePedestrians display mixed reactionsgetting to class on time a challenge. I usually go by on my skateboard, but its gotten harder for me to do that without people cutting in front of me, he said. I almost fell off. It was really frustrating.

HEATHER REINBLATTAlligator Contributing WriterAs residents bundle up to escape the low temperatures, farmers are worried less about themselves and more about their crops. John Steyer, 77, owner of Little Bit Nursery in Starke, said his crops were severely damaged last week when the temperature dropped dozens of degrees in one day. We knew ahead of time, of course, Steyer said. We covered crops. We froze the damaged by the cold and are now infected by fungi. The lack of sun will likely kill infected plants in a few days, he said. Steyer said he also noticed a recent decline in vendors at the weekly Alachua County Farmers Market where he sells produce. I dont think there is a farmer out there who wasnt affected by this cold front, Steyer said. Jeff Huffman, WUFT chief meteorologist, said the cold snap is because of a jet stream, which is a river of air that steers storm systems. This year, systems were driven unusually far to the south, he said. Farmers are advised to pay close attention to the news and use overhead sprinkler irrigation, said Daniel Dourte, research associate for the UF Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering. The sprinklers cause the plants to freeze, preventing further damage by trapping heat. Rebecca Tate, a massage student who helps Steyer with his farm, said she thinks having enough people to lend a hand on the farm can also reduce damages. than one person to help out, because we lost market, Tate said.Local farmers crops suffering during cold weather snaps THE THEME IS THE SKY AND NATURAL LIGHT. NICOLE GIAQUINTOAlligator Contributing WriterUF Health Shands Childrens Hospital took another step forward in its plan to improve care by opening a pediatric cardiac intensive care unit, or PCICU, last week. tal were transformed into the PCICU to specialize in patients with congenital heart disease. Dr. F. Jay Fricker, the medical director of the UF Health Congenital Heart Center, said that before the PCICU opened, patients with congenital heart disease were treated in different parts of the hospital. Now, Shands has a unit that can give the best care to patients in one place. We want to take care of patients with congenital heart disease in the state of Florida, Fricker said. At 18,000 square feet, the unit contains 23 private rooms, each with its own bathroom, shower, television and gaming system. Fricker said the new unit combines critical care and intermediate care in one central location. We can increase the quality of care, decrease the morrate care, he said. intensive care unit at Shands is under renovation, so the PCICU is providing intensive care to both general and cardiac patients temporarily. Fricker said he hopes to see the center grow and prosper in years to come. I think the vision for the heart center is that we keep growing and adding faculty of children, Fricker said. As with many areas in the hospital, Fricker said the center was built with a theme in mind. For the PCICU, the focus is the sky and natural light. There are skylights and a um in the new unit to keep the patients hopeful and happy as they receive care. We call it the center of our universe, Fricker said. Hannah Asay, a 19-yearold UF nursing sophomore, said she thinks the unit is a great idea. I think that a specialization in the cardiac area will heighten the survival rates for infants with heart disease, she said.Pediatric cardiac ICU opens at UF Health Shands hospitalGATOR GRADS ANNALEIGH BONDSAlligator Contributing WriterA UF graduate is slicing into the ring Danny Trejo.

Vinyl sales experienced an approximate 32 percent increase from 4.55 million units in 2012 to 6 million units in 2013, according to Billboard. Meanwhile, CD sales experienced a 14.5 percent decrease. Digital track and album sales decreased Billboard. Two percent of total album sales in the United States is vinyl. paired with the decrease in CD sales can be seen as an indicator of where the music industry might be headed. This most recent rise of the vinyl did not go unnoticed by local record store owner Andrew Schaer. Schaer, the 37-year-old owner of Hear Again Music and Movies! located in downtown Gainesville, said he has seen a major increase in the stores vinyl sales within the last year. He said he sees the increase as people recognizing that vinyl albums are the best way to experience music. All the little nuances in the album just come to life, Schaer said. Schaer said listening to vinyl is eyeopening because the listener is able to experience all the details that get lost when a song is digitized and compressed. Caleb German, 26, an employee at Hear Again, also prefers LP records to other means of listening to music. Unless, he said, Im driving down the road. Schaer said he noticed consumers movement away from CDs and toward vinyl when he moved Hear Again to its current location at 201 SE First St. in 2009. During that move, he donated most of his CD inventory and switched to primarily carrying vinyl albums. I went from having a sinking ship to having a lucrative business, Schaer said. Schaer and German recognize that the price of new vinyl albums, which is generally higher than that of a new CD or digital album, does affect sales. German said vinyl albums high costs are mainly a result of their fairly niche market and high shipping costs caused by a lack of vinyl pressing plants. However, Schaer said because new vinyl albums often come with a digital download of the album, the younger generation is attracted to vinyl because they can have both a digital and an aesthetically pleasing physical copy of the album. Schaer said that people purchasing a physical medium of music at an increasing rate means a path is being set that will lead To him, an increase in vinyl album sales the artists. Neither Schaer nor German said they think this spike in LP sales is going to be a fading trend. Schaer said he doesnt believe the LP will lose prominence anytime soon. He said the record format has managed to stay around after each new technology introduced to the music industry faded away. Im glad to see it (vinyl) back and people focusing on quality over convenience again, Schaer said. art Teeth are very visceral, but because something holographic isnt even there, it sort of plays on spirit and body.Hilary White

Bulldogs guard Charles Mann, the reigning SEC Player of the Week, was the biggest victim of the Gators full-court press Tuesday. ing the Gators key run. Three of his mistakes were committed in the backcourt. Mann, who look gassed and night, recorded more turnovers ished with only eight points in 34 minutes. We know their two guards, Mann and [Kenny Gaines], they play a lot of minutes, so Coach play, Finney-Smith said. So, thats why we pressed on them. With 7:25 remaining in the 10, Floridas full-court press began to get to Mann. with Frazier trailing, the Georgia guard lost his handle at half court. and took it to the other end for an easy layup. Fewer than two minutes later, teamed Mann, who threw an out of bounds. After the error, Mann shook his head in disgust. I dont think they were exThey turned the ball over a lot. It got us going; it got the crowd going. We got layups, fastbreaks, dunks. They didnt know what to do on the press. But the onslaught stemming from the press continued. Fifty-six seconds after his last turnover, Mann stumbled and was trapped by Finney-Smith and Wilbekin in the right corner of the back court. Then, Wilbekin swiped the ball and dished it to FinneySmith for the easy slam to lift UF to a 30-10 lead.

Just go, just go, because he knew they were struggling, And we just went. HOOPS, from page 14The Gators began the season with only nine active players suffered an ACL tear in her left knee, and have been playing the majority of their games with eight due to a torn ligament in sophomore Antoinette Bannisters right hand. This season, coach Amanda Butler has often praised her teams ability to overcome adversity. Overcoming Mercers absence will be tough, to say the least, but Butler has faith in her teams mettle. I dont think there are many adjustments for us to make, Butler said. Weve played with a short bench all year and found ways to overcome whatever it was that we were missing in a particular game. I think the spirit of this team will continue push forward. Certainly, one less person on any given Thursany team. Were already having to play with an extra measure of toughness, because most people have a longer bench than ours. I think well just stay the course of what weve been doing. But what the Gators have been doing surely wont serve them well down the road this season, at least in some aspects. Rebounding has been a nagging issue for Florida. Freshman Ronni Williams is one of the Gators two remaining consistent rebounders, the other being redshirt junior Kayla Lewis. Both of those young ladies feel an extra measure of responsibility, and thats just because theyre great competitors and they want to do whatever they can for their team, Butler said. are able to play right now look at it at all as just Ronni and Kaylas job. I think that responsibility is going to be spread across the ers on LSU on Sunday were guards. Weve got to have more rebounding contributions from everywhere. As previously mentioned, foul trouble has also been problematic. Williams has fouled out often this season, with the latest happening in Sundays contest against LSU. With the team now down to only two bench players, fouls Its a tough thing to correct, try and teach and drill things in practice. People are going to come at you. People are going to throw the ball in your way and youve just got to take things to another level. I fully expect Ronni to do that. Shes made great strides. Sunday, she slipped back a little bit, but shes a great player and awesome competitor. W-HOOPS, from page 13 RECR UIT, from page 14 They turned the ball over a lot.

With six of Floridas seven players listed in the top 40 of the ITA Singles Rankings, he has good reason. After almost a two-month break, the Gators are eager to jump into the season. Along with the tough schedule also came a few new rule changes. This spring, the NCAA will be experimenting with a 6-point doubles match and a tiebreaker in singles instead of a third set. Florida has three seniors, one sophomore and three freshmen on the roster. Coming off of what he considers an excellent fall season, Thornqvist said he expects his freshmen to perform at a high level in the dual-match season in the spring. He said the team will rely on the freshmen a lot, but he will also be relying on his seniors for leadership and stability. The team begins the spring season in Las Vegas for the three-day Freeman Memorial Championships on Friday.
