Alligator Staff Writer bdupuy@alligator.orgPresident Barack Obama announced plans on Wednesday for a task force to protect college students from sexual assault. The White House task force is designed to raise awareness of sexual assaults on college campuses. A White House memorandum stated that the program will provide instruction to universities on prevention and response techniques. Within 90 days, the task force is expected to evaluate the efforts by college campuses to prevent sexual assault. According to the memorandum, studies show that about sexual violence while in college. Chris Loschiavo, UF associate dean of students and Stuto 2013 UF had eight reported sexual assault cases. Most years we only had one or two reported to us, he said. More awareness is what is going to increase reporting. UF has several programs to educate students about sexual assault, help sexual assault victims and promote bystander intervention. STRIVE at GatorWell is a group of peer educators that reaches out to students about sexual assault prevention, including a collaboration with University Police to promote the importance of consent. Debra Weiss, a UPD victim advocate, said that sexual assault is a silent crime that often goes unreported. We want to help people get access to resources, she said. We will continue to do everything we can to let people know we are here and that theyre not alone. Last Fall, UF created an interpersonal violence prevention committee to address issues ranging from sexual assault to bullying and stalking. Jeanna Mastrodicasa, UF assistant vice president for Student Affairs, said the university has many initiatives related to preventing sexual assault because it is a multifaceted issue, Obama forms sexual assault task forceCAMPUS Alligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgAbout two weeks after gun advosuit against the university to remove UF has not been served court papers.

The lawsuit was revised and has been set back in motion. I dont see this getting settled before appearing before a judge, Caranna said. He said Florida Carry petitioned to waive the serve of process, meaning the court papers are being mailed to UF instead of delivered by the county sheriff. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes wrote in an email that the university is still complying with the December appellate court decision that allows state campuses. Sikes also said UF is complying with Florida law that bans guns on state campuses and in dorm rooms. The University of North Florida and the University of South Florida have amended policies to comply with the court decision, and the University of Central Florida is in the process.Typos delay gun-rights lawsuit papers Alligator Staff Writerjlyons@alligator.orgHad Scott Patrick Harmon been wearing a seatbelt as he drove down Interstate 75, he might have gotten away with carrying the 37 pounds of marijuana police said he had in his car.

According to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York published last week, 44 percent of recent graduates are underemployed, meaning they are working jobs that do not require a degree. Kids invest so much into their education, said Patricia Garcia-Linares, a 19-year-old UF accounting sophomore. To think they dont get a return on that investment is scary. Underemployment among the nations younger demographic is nothing new, the study shows. The underemployment rate for college graduates has consistently been about 33 percent for the past two decades. But for recent college graduates, the underemployment rate has hit a new high, rising from 34 percent in 2001 to 44 percent as of 2012. Despite these numbers, Heather White, director of UFs Career Resource Center, said the futures of UF students look promising. What weve experienced here at UF is a very different story, she said. All of our numing. More than 9,000 students interviewed for jobs last year through the Career Resource Center alone, White said.

The Faire, which will host eight stages of entertainment and more than 160 artisans, will run this weekend and next at the Alachua County Fairgrounds. The medieval faire was started by the Society for Creative Anachronism 28 years ago, said Linda Piper, Gainesville events coordinator. Orlando has Disney, and Gainesville has Hoggetowne, she said.

She said she enjoys the food and the fantastical atmosphere. I feel like in college, everyones telling you to grow up, and the medieval fair is kind of to rebel against that, Ochogo said. Under normal circumstances, people would think it was super weird but you can kind of just go and not have to worry what anyone thinks. The Faire will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fridays. Admission is $15 for adults, $7 for children and free for kids under 5.

and that assistance does not end with reporting the assault. This is a problem we take very seriously, she said. We want to make sure we are doing whats best for our students at all times. For some students, like Hannah Bailey, the White House initiative may not be enough to make a difference. Im not sure theyre going to be able to really do anything other than bring awareness, said Bailey, an 18-year-old UF exploratory freshman. Mastrodicasa said in order for the White House task force to be effective, an overall university representative must be established. We want to make sure that as national regulations are put in place, university input is being heard as well, she said. 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 2014Maria Valencia/AlligatorUF Marks the SpotUF Japanese freshman Jenny Peacock, 19, and UF chemical engineering sophomore Shanna Xia, 20, participate in Foto Frenzy 2014.

JONATHAN ARNHOLZAlligator Contributing WriterGator basketball fans looking for a shot to support their team can do more than cheer at Saturdays Tennessee game. UF is involved in two basketball-themed online contests: the NCAA 6th Fan contest and the lenge. The NCAA 6th Fan contest is a competition that decides which school has the most supportive basketball fans. Gabriella Razzetti, a 21-yearold UF sport management senior, said the Gators success at home is due, in large part, to the fans. Theres no other arena like ours in the country, she said, and our fans and our school deserve to be recognized as having an impact on the players and the game itself. Florida fans can vote for the Gators daily at 6thFan.NCAA. com and on Twitter by including the hashtags #6thFan and #FLA. The winning school, which will receive $100,000, will be announced March 16. UF is also involved in the Charity Challenge, in which fans vote for mens basketball coaches who are teamed up with a charity of their choice. Gators coach Billy Donovan is partnering with the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation for the fourth consecutive year. Donovan and the foundation won the inaugural challenge in 2011, raising money to contribute to the ongoing renovation of the UF Health Shands Childrens Hospital. Linda Michalisin, a spokeswoman for Sebastian Ferrero Foundation, said Donovan has helped give the organization a national platform. Hes been an incredible champion for the cause at helping to raise awareness, she said. First-round voting runs through Sunday, allowing voters to choose among 48 coach-andcharity pairs, which have already been guaranteed a donation of at least $1,000, according the contests website. Beside the winning charitys grand prize, other participating charities will also receive smaller donations.

Kinnon Thomas, WUFT underwriter, said he has Stations do like to stick to a tight playlist, he said. They may introduce maybe one or two new songs a week. Only about 5 percent of songs played on the radio are titles that have been released in the past six months, Thomas said. That means in a rotation of 500 songs, about 25 are new titles, and the rest of the songs are recurring which means theyve had six months or longer of play time. To keep listeners tuned in, radio stations admit to playing less variety because their ratings show that listeners want to hear the recurring and popular titles more often, Thomas said. If a radio station only played new titles, he said, they wouldnt make it, wouldnt have good tion. This trend of keeping the same list of songs in rotation may be a response to the popularity of streaming music applications, according to the story. With apps like Spotify and Pandora, listeners can easily discover and listen to new music whenever they want. Victoria Cappelli, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior, said she mostly listens to new music with apps on her phone. I like listening to new music, she said, but I dont need the radio to discover it. When deciding on which new songs to release and whether to keep them in rotation, radio stations watch Billboard charts, record sales and SoundScan a database that keeps track of music sales, Thomas said. Cappelli said she interned at JVC Broadcasting in New York City. Through the internship, she was exposed to another way that program directors discover new music: pitching. Bands give program directors their albums in hopes that a single will make it onto the radio. But, she said, Most of the time, they wouldnt even open the CD.Oldies radio gets new meaning: Stations not playing new songs OBAMA, from page 1Assault underreported I like listening to new music.Victoria CappelliUF public relations junior

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 2014 Kathryn Williams / AlligatorAnother Brick In The Wall CAMPUS ADRIANA BARBATAlligator Contributing WriterSurgeons at North Florida Regional Medical Center can now perform surgeries using a highly precise robotic arm. Released to the public last week, the Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, known as RIO, is the The hospital purchased the machine in December to perform knee and hip replacement surgeries that facilitate fast recovery and ensure longer-lasting implants than traditional surgery methods. Compared to other joint surgeries, patients are expected to recover two to three times faster and enjoy a much more natural-feeling replacement because the process preserves patients natural ligaments, said Rob Greene, a territory sales manager for MAKO Surgical Corp., the company that created RIO. The joint-replacement procedures will also allow surgeons to remove bone mass more precisely in patients with osteoarthritis, reducing pain and maintaining as much of the natural bone as possible. The robot guarantees that the physician gets the implant in every time, Greene said. If you get the implant aligned correctly, then thats going to be a much greater outcome and longevity for the implant. Conventional surgery for partial knee replacement requires surgeons to work freehand while removing bone mass, meaning more bone is removed than necessary, Greene said. The RIO takes a 3-D image from a computer-processed X-ray to the boundaries of the operating area. The device will also expand the pool of candidates who can have surgeries, said Kenneth Chip Overstreet, assistant vice president of orthopedic services at the hospital. It opens the door to younger patients, he said. If they catch you soon enough, youre going to avoid a much greater surgery. Overstreet expects surgeries to begin in the next few weeks.Robotic arm lends helping hand to county hospital patients ANNALEIGH BONDSAlligator Contributing WriterLighting up may be worse than ever for smokers health. A new report from the U.S. Surgeon General suggests that smoking is now proven to be more deadly than ever because of changes in the manufacturing process. It has been 50 years since the tobacco-related report in 1964. Since then, more than $20 million Americans have died because of smoking, according to the report. Cigarette manufacturers have redesigned cigarettes, said Jane Emmere, a GatorWell Health Promotion Services specialist. The levels of chemicals in cigarette smoke have increased as a result of the manufacturing processes, she said. Emmere said the report is sigevidence to make claims about the effects of smoking. It also provides information on ways to help students who suffer with addiction. The report added new disorders that we didnt have enough evidence for, Emmere said. The preponderance of evidence keeps growing stronger and stronger. Amber Medina, a 22-year-old UF chemistry junior, said that as a smoker, she worries about health complications that may arise. Medina said although smoking is restricted now, she thinks its taboo is what makes it appeal more to a younger generation than it did in the s and s.

DALE DOWDENAlligator Contributing WriterThe Norman Education Library has shortened its weekend hours during the Spring semester. The library that once remained open until 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday now closes at 5 p.m. We wanted to take a look at what our peak hours are, said Tiffany Baglier, a visiting assistant librarian at the education library. We realized that the hours that we cut, really we dont have that many patrons at that time. The education library staff decided those excess hours were unnecessary due to lack of students studying and librarians available for assistance. For now, staff members plan on using the new schedule of hours this Spring as a trial. A permanent decision on the hours of the library in future semesters will not be made until the end of the semester, Baglier said. Six was already super early, and its right by my house so it was really nice to go there and to not have to go all the way to Library West, said Jeff Diamond, a 21-year-old UF biology junior. For students like Diamond who live east of Southwest 13th Street, the education library is the closest study spot. I think Ill go to West more than Norman now, Diamond said.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynAlthough No. 6 Florida has moved away from being a traditional three-point shooting team this season, it needed to return to its old ways during Thursday nights 68-62 win over Alabama. The Gators (16-2, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) struggled to break into the paint against the Crimson Tides (8-10, 2-3 SEC) 2-3 zone early and turned to Michael Frazier II to bail them out from beyond the arc. Frazier, who was held scoreless for Auburn, started the game 1 of 6 from contest 4 of 7. The sophomore guards 13 attempts were the most in his career. Hes just got to keep shooting it, coach Billy Donovan said. He had really, really good looks. And this couldve been a game with his shooting that he couldve, by himself, shot them out of the zone. I think he couldve even had a bigger night and couldve taken more threes. pointers, but he added three free throws to end the night with 18 points.

GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandRebounding the ball was not an issue on Thursday night for the Gators, but rebounding from their current losing streak is. In front of a crowd of 10,541 in ThompsonBoling Arena, Florida dropped its third consecutive Southeastern Conference contest to No. 11 Tennessee (15-4, 4-2 SEC), losing 89-69. The Lady Volunteers were sharp offensively and 10 of 21 from three-point range. Senior guard Meighan Simmons spearheaded the Lady Volunteers offensive effort, scoring a game-high 21 points, thanks to a 5-of-10 performance from beyond the arc. They had some kids that stepped up and hit shots that dont typically do that, coach Amanda Butler said. Thats always subject to happen when youre playing such a talented team. Meighan Simmons where sometimes had to play them in zone and just didnt do a good job with the level of awareness. She gets it off very quick and shes going to make you pay if she gets a good look. Things got out of hand early for the Gators (13-6, 3-3 SEC), who fell behind 20-8 with 13:32 At halftime, the Volunteers were leading 4027, and UF was 0 of 8 from three-point range. There were parts of the game that we just didnt play well, Butler said. I know that may be oversimplifying it, but there were times when we took bad shots or shots that didnt appear we believed in.Florida drops third consecutive conference gameSEE HOOPS, PA GE 14 SEE W-HOOPS, PA GE 14G YMNASTICS ERICA A. HERNANDEZ Alligator Writer @EricaAlyssa No. 3 Florida (2-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) hosts No. 6 Georgia (2-2, 1-0 SEC) in the OConnell Center tonight at 7. The team is just so looking forward to running out of the tunnel, coach Rhonda competing at home. Though the Gators are the reigning champions, they believe there is room for improvement. Tonights meet will mark Floridas next step in climbing to the top from a less than stellar season opener against UCLA. The team improved 0.425 points from 196.65 against the Bruins to a score of 197.075 against Auburn on Jan. 17, and it will look to do better against the Bulldogs tonight. Theres such a difference between if youre competing at home or on the road and who youre competing in the lineups and its just so early in the season, Faehn said. Usually, later in the season when it starts to go by your [regional qualifying score], and it gets a better average ... thats when it starts to take a little bit more effect.

So for right now, Im not focusing on that. Faehn said she does not look too far ahead in the season. Tonight is a matter of focusing on Floridas task at hand: Georgia. UF faced Georgia four times in 2013 once during the regular season, which Florida won (197.30196.175), and three times in postseason meets. While Florida won its second consecutive SEC the conference. The teams met in both NCAA Championships NCAA Super Six (Florida 197.575, Georgia 196.675) competition. The Bulldogs have had a busy January. Georgia competed four times in a span of a little more than three weeks. is coming to Gainesville on a two-game winning streak the same as UF. While Floridas Bridget Sloan won SEC Gymnast of the Week on Monday, Georgias Chelsea Davis and Kiera Brown snagged both of the SECs other two weekly individual awards: Event Specialist of the Week and Freshman of the Week, respectively. Davis contributed a career-best 9.975 on bars and a 9.9 on vault to aid in Georgias takedown of No. 2 LSU on Jan. 17. For Floridas two freshmen, tonights meet will be a foreign experience. Both Silvia Colussi-Pelaez and Claire Boyce have competed for UF on the road, but they have only ever practiced in the OConnell Center. Its going to be something theyve never experienced before, Faehn said. I think it will kind of open up a whole new level for them that they havent seen before. Thats where theyll start to gain the appreciation for loving competing at home. I told them to expect the unexpected, Sloan said. I told them to just be aware that the crowd will be very respectful, they are a very respectful crowd. And they applaud great gymnastics. started 1 of 8 from three only to knock down the next four, forward Dorian Finney-Smith said the team trusted Frazier even more than he trusted himself. Following Thursday nights win, Finney-Smith echoed his message from more than a week ago. If he misses seven in a row, that hes going to make the next one, he said. We get mad at him and everybody says to him, Just keep shooting. Mike Fraziers the row out of nowhere. Coming into Thursday nights matchup, only 30.3 percent of the Gators shots were three-pointers, which is the schools lowest since KenPom. com started recording the stat in 2003. But Florida was forced to shoot 46 percent of its shots from beyond the arc against Alabama. The Gators 28 attempted threes were the most this season, and their 17 attempted most to open a game since their 63-60 loss to Missouri on Feb. 19. Although Florida only landed 10 threes, Alabama had to settle for just two the entire game, which tied a season low. Our 10 threes really offset the fact that they made two, Donovan said. When youre playing zone, you have a chance to give up a lot of threes, and we made 10 of them even though we took 28. They were there. The Crimson Tides zone prevented the Gators frontcourt in Finney-Smith, Patric Young and Will Yeguete from doing anything offensively. The three big men totaled only 17 combined points. However, their rebounding kept Florida in the game when Frazier and company struggled to make shots early in the game. Together, Finney-Smith and Yeguete recorded 22 of the Gators 42 rebounds, including 10 of the teams 18 offensive boards. Those guys got to the backboard, which was encouraging, Donovan said. When youre a frontcourt player against zone, youve got to get it off the backboard. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. 14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 2014William A.

Florida committed only four more turnovers than Tennessee We didnt have a ton of turnovers, but it seemed like we had them at crucial times, Butler said. Tennessee had a considerable size advantage on Florida and was ranked third in the nation in rebound margin heading into Thursday nights affair. Although the Gators lost the rebounding battle, it was only by a total of 38-37. I guess we can take some consolation in that, Butler said. Part of what we wanted to do was try to neutralize that rebounding. Again, the rebounds that we gave up seemed to be so timely. single digits. And then just to give up such big plays like that in Florida has now found itself in the midst of a three-game losing streak, which happens to come off the heels of a nine-game winning streak. A key factor in the current slide could be the absence of suspended sophomore forward Christin Mercer. Mercer has not played since Floridas home win over Arkansas its last victory before the current skid leaving the Gators with only eight active players. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

Being the anchor of the 4x4, people dont really think thats a lot of pressure, Hall said. But in reality, think about the race on the line, and you have to get a certain place to even win the race or whole conference or nationals. Im happy that my team shows that they have a lot of in. Pretty much be the quarter horse. They know Ill do what I have to do done. Ill run to the last bit of my breath and run till my legs fall out.

Arman is that guy. People look at him and think hes only 19 years old or he was only 18 last year when he started anchoring. It has nothing to do with that. Hes a guy that believes hes the best out there, so I have no problem putting him on my anchor. In addition to Hall, two other Gators earned SEC honors last week.

IAN COHENAlligator Writer@ibcohen5The No. 2 Florida womens tennis team begins its season as hosts of the ITA Kickoff opening rounds this Saturday at the Ring Tennis Complex. Louisville, Missouri and Harvard will travel to Gainesville for a chance to be entered in the National Team Indoor Championships held Feb. 7-10 in Charlottesville, Va. The winner from each secondround match this weekend will advance to the national tournament. The Gators come off the 2012-2013 season with a 26-3 (12-1 Southeastern Conference) record in which they won the SEC Championship but fell short of winning a third ford. I really like this team, coach Roland Thornqvist said. I think weve gotten better each month and I like the depth. All seven are going to be contributing every time we play. The Gators are heavy favorites in their season opener against Louisville. Weve been in situations like this before, at least I have, said senior Alexandra Cercone, who spent her offseason competing in pro-circuit tournaments. We have to be prepared though, because sometimes the underdog will come in and play very free because they have no pressure on them. More than half the team spent the past two weeks competing in tournaments. However, freshmen Kourtney Keegan, Stefani Stojic and Belinda Woolcock will experiFour of our seven players have already played and competed this spring and theyve done well, Thornqvist said. But three of them are going to be thrown in there Thornqvist expects the seniors to carry the leadership role and help the three freshman, two of which are ranked in the top 40 nationally, become more comfortable on the court. We dont verbalize [our goals] a lot, but its understood that we strive for excellence, Cercone said. Personally, I want to be a good leader and a good teammate, just because it helps team morale and that helps when we are playing matches. The team plans to replicate the success it has had in years past by relying on its talent; six players on this years tennis squad are ranked in the top 40 nationally. Thornqvist thinks the teams depth will help the Gators tremendously in doubles. I really feel good about our doubles, Thornqvist said. I think we have multiple pairings at each spot that can win, which helps us. Im excited to see them play this weekend and see if there is anything in particular we need to pay attention to in the coming weeks.

BRITNE MCCOYAlligator Writer@TheReporterGirlComing off a 5-2 victory against UNF, coach Bryan Shelton and the Gators look to improve to 2-0 as they take on UNC-Wilmington on Saturday at 2 p.m. at the ITA Kickoff at the Ring Tennis Complex. Shelton was pleased with the way his team played on Wednesday. For our home opener, we certainly felt the nerves out there on the court and it was a good match to get through that, he said. Despite the win, Shelton sees many areas in which his team needs to improve. Freshman standout Elliott Orkin and his doubles partner Gordon Watson are also excited to have a chance to redeem themselves after losing 6-2 in their match against UNF. The duo went into the match ranked 13th nationally in doubles. I just think we werent playing aggressive enough, Orkin said. We werent making the balls that we normally make. [Wednesday] was a little dip in our normal results, but well be back at it this weekend. Orkin won his singles match a two-hour duel against UNFs Yannick Zuern that went to three sets. He attributed his success Wednesday to advice his older teammates gave him. They gave me some tips before the match, things to consideration and took it with me into the match. Shelton described UNC-Wilmington as a tough loaded team that always comes to play. If Florida were to win Saturday, it would face either Florida State or TCU in the ITA Kickoff Championship on Sunday at 2 p.m. The consolation match will begin that day at noon.
