Grad gains shot at $1 million 60-second rap commercial places top 25 BRANDI BROXSON News Editor
A UCF alumnus has a 1in-25 shot at a million dollars. Chris Yarn, who graduated in 2005 with a degree in communications, entered the Gain “Smell Like a Million Bucks” contest on Facebook just a few days before the July 7 deadline. Contestants were
required to film a 60-second or less video and say “I use Gain and I smell like a million bucks.” Yarn’s video was among nearly 500 other contestants’ videos. According to competition rules, the winner of the competition will receive $100,000 a year for ten years. “This is the largest single prize for an online video contest in history,” Yarn said. Finalists were chosen
based on total number of views they received, multiplied by a creative score. Yarn said he got the call from Gain about being in the top 25 while watching the Women’s World Cup soccer semifinals at a local sports pub. “I was just smiling; I couldn’t believe it,” Yarn said.

Casey Anthony trial protester receives jail time ORLANDO — A man who handed out pamphlets outside of designated free-speech zones during the Casey Anthony murder trial has been given jail time by the central Florida judge presiding over the case. Judge Belvin Perry says that 64-year-old contractor Mark Schmidter violated a pair of his pretrial orders about protesting outside the Orange County Courthouse and sentenced him to just over five months in jail for the infractions. Perry’s ruling came after a morning-long bench trial.

PORT ORANGE — Officials say a police dog that went missing while searching for a central Florida woman has been found. The German shepherd, named Rex, broke away from his lead Tuesday afternoon while looking for 43-year-old Toni M. Contarino. Police say Contarino had left work in a “depressed state” and was reported missing after leaving her cell phone and other items at her home.

World’s best pickup artist shares methods For those on the quest to become the ideal man, the 21 Convention offered a little something for everybody. Nearly 70 people attended the convention, including speakers and staff, according to Anthony Johnson, founder and architect of the convention. The event featured a variety of speakers, covering a range of topics from how to pick up women, to building confidence, nutrition and exercise. One of the featured speakers at the event was Adam Lyons, a pickup artist who has supported this convention since 2008. He said an important factor in deciding whether to pursue a woman is qualification, which he defined as assessing whether a person is a potential fit for a product, service or something someone has. “Qualification, essentially, lets us be choosy. And if we’re choosy, we’re in a position of power, because we’re making the choice,”

From the ‘80s to the ‘90s, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s name on an action movie bill translated into box office gold. Now, for the seventh year in a row, former UCF students Ryan Boylston and Vinnie Gulisano will honor the former California governor’s birthday by hosting Arnold Day at Lazy Moon Pizza. “They can look forward to almost the entire Arnold Schwarzenegger collection first and foremost,” said Tim Brown, owner of Lazy Moon. “A potential Arnold Schwarzenegger appearance, or someone who looks very much like him, cake and a good bit of beer drinking, in true Arnold fashion.” The seventh annual Arnold Day will be held at Lazy Moon on July 30 from 12 p.m. to
Are you going to Arnold Day? www.UCFNews.com 3a.m. In 2004, Boylston and Gulisano bellied up to the bar at Lazy Moon and spent the entire day watching Schwarzenegger movies on one of the restaurant’s televisions. Now, Arnold Day, which began as a two die-hard Schwarzenegger fans hanging out and eating pizza, has evolved into a full-blown celebration. This year, Boylston and Gulisano decided to give back, donating the proceeds from the sale of Arnold Day T-shirts to the Governator’s favorite cause, The Special Olympics. “The first six Arnold Days we pretty much threw for ourselves,” said Gulisano, who graduated from UCF in 2007 with a degree in finance. “We just said we wanted something to do for the weekend. Now it seems cool to just become more involved with the community.” In addition to that, Brown said that he plans to donate at least 15 percent of the profits from Arnold Day to the Special Olympics as well.

Yarn inspired by Seminar shares sweet success housing crisis BRITTANY BLACKSHEAR Contributing Writer
FROM A1 Yarn took time off from his job as an insurance salesman to get the word out about his video. He also got help from UCF digital media graduates Tom Grobmyer and James Pfleiderer to make his website – voteyarn.com. He even filmed a second video for the website in which he teaches people how they can vote and watch his video. Yarn’s video includes a catchy rap song in which he reaches out to homeowners who find themselves upside down in the housing crisis. “I’ve got about 20 friends that live in Orlando who all graduated from UCF and stayed here and bought houses, and I had the thought that I want to deliver the message that it is ridiculous a lot of young, middle class people with college degrees are working hard and these banks will not refinance or modify our house loans that we got when we graduated. We are getting hammered with ridiculous interest rates,” Yarn said. Florida placed third with 46 percent of all mortgaged properties upside down in CoreLogic’s 2011 Negative Equity Report. Nevada claimed the top spot, followed by Arizona. Realtor Tom Nestor agrees that the housing market is in a crisis. “The banks do not want to modify or refinance anyone that is upside down on their house. They initially will tell people that they will help them out with a modification, but they say they have to be 90 days delinquent. So, the people stop paying their house payment and wait 90 days.

Yarn’s Gain video was among nearly 500 other contestants’videos.
Then they apply again for a loan modification,” he said. “Only less than 1 percent of all loan modifications get approved. It is a huge scam,” Nestor said. Yarn said that if he won he would use the money to pay off his mortgage. He also said in the video that he would like to re-marry his wife, Michelle. Michelle, who is also a UCF grad, used her radio/television degree to help Chris film and direct the video. According to Chris, they filmed the video in about six hours, which was then edited down to 60 seconds. Michelle said that with her radio/television degree and Chris’ communications degree, they joined forces to complete the video. “We were up against people with professional cameras, editing equipment, sound boards; studio people who clearly know what they are doing and do this on a regular basis. And then you have someone like Chris who saw [the competition], had a great idea and wanted to bring it to life.” The final round of the contest ends on August 1. Voters can vote once per day for the video of their choice on Gain’s Facebook page under the contest tab.
UCF students can satisfy their sweet tooth at the Pegasus Ballroom on Thursday when Hollis Wilder, owner of the wildly popular Sweet! By Good Golly Miss Holly cupcake shop, speaks to students. Wilder, also known as Miss Holly, was asked by UCF’s Campus Activities Board to speak to students and inspire them to go after their dreams. She has useful advice for a young entrepreneur wanting to run their own business. “Work at what you like because you love it and are devoted to it and the process, not the outcome of its success,” Wilder said. “Success will come if you are committed and consistent with your product and your customers.” Before Sweet! was opened in 2008 in the Waterford Lakes shopping center, Wilder had a much different life in Los Angeles. She was a savory chef who provided buffet lunches on the set of Hollywood’s most watched shows, such as Will & Grace, That ‘70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun and Seinfeld. She has served meals at the Oscars and the Emmy Awards to the Rolling Stones. Seven years ago, Wilder moved to Winter Park with her family. Then in 2008, Sweet! opened. However, Wilder hadn’t always dreamed of opening a cupcake shop. “It was my dream to
be open to creating a concept that I could brand and recreate,” Wilder said. “The cupcake shop was not in Orlando when I arrived from L.A., so I made it happen.” Using generations of collected family and personal recipes, Sweet! became an instant hit. The shop became such a success that in its second year, Miss Holly added 12 flavors of frozen yogurt to her menu. Popular cupcake flavors, like red velvet, were now available in frozen form. Today, Sweet! cupcakes are well known throughout the Orlando community.
Hollis Wilder,owner of Sweet! By Good Golly Miss Holly cupcake shop,will speak to students at UCF on Thursday. UCF CAMPUS ACTIVITIES BOARD
“It is well-loved by Orlando and its surrounding communities in a 50-mile radius. Our store is filled with welltraveled guests who are in search of the best cupcakes,” Wilder said. Hundreds of UCF students are expected to attend this Thursday, July 28, in the Pegasus Ballroom for Wilder’s appearance. There will be raffles for gift cards and other prizes. Also, the first 700 students to arrive will receive free cupcakes. Ashley Williams, a senior legal studies major, is a longtime Sweet! fan and is antici-
pating Thursday’s event. “I first learned about her cupcakes my freshman year when they had a booth set up at an event at UCF,” Williams said. “They passed out free mini cupcakes and I was instantly in heaven! I then watched her win Cupcake Wars on Food Network twice, and I was so proud! Finally, I had validation for my addiction to her cupcakes.” Students and other attendees are asked to come on time for the event. With cupcakes like Miss Holly’s, they are sure to run out fast.

Speaker encourages men to be free animals FROM A1 Lyons said. He also said keeping a woman engaged in a conversation that they are interested in is a critical step in successfully pursuing a woman. He said qualification can also be taken into a darker form, using a concept known as “preloading,” which is the process of putting ideas in people’s heads through their subconscious. Stephen Grosch, a pickup artist who goes by the name “Bravo,” spoke at the 21 Convention about selfdefense as well as having online “game.” He has his own website, bravopua.com, where people can request his services. He said meeting women online is not a substitute for having game in the real world. He recommends using plentyoffish.com because it’s free and allows people to quickly view profiles. He said one important detail is the profile picture, something he looks at when working with clients. “When I do critiques, the first thing I’ll say is, ‘Dude, your picture sucks. Why are you wearing that? Your clothes are out of style,’” Grosch said. Grosch said one’s profile picture should convey their personality and demonstrate higher value. He also recommends keeping the “about me” section of the profile brief. He said the most effective section that he’s ever had was made up of five sentences. He also had tips on what to do when conducting searches for women on the Plenty of Fish website, such as carefully scrutinizing profile pictures. “If I can’t see a girl’s nose, or half of her mouth because she photoshopped it so much, that’s a good
sign that she has something to hide,” Grosch said. Richard Nikoley, a blogger who hosts his own website, freetheanimal.com, spoke at this event. Nikoley’s speech revolved around getting the most out of your 20’s and avoiding what he considered to be mistakes. He said many of the traditional decisions we make are not appropriate for what he considers to be a free “human animal.” “You can always get married, have two and a half kids, become a Democrat, a Republican, go vote, go to church, do all these things,” Nikoley said. “If that’s the life you want, you’re welcome to it. But I
don’t think it’s a life fit for an animal. I don’t think it’s a life fit for a free animal.” He said men need to think more like animals in how they live their lives. One example he provided was changing what we eat. Nikoley said he weighed more than 240 pounds once due to not eating correctly. Five years ago, at the age of 45, he lost 60 pounds using the Paleo diet, a diet which advocates the elimination of grains and dairy from your diet, and instead eating wild game and fresh produce. He said this diet has helped him stay healthy and live more like a human animal. Attendees all left the convention with their own
unique experience. Phil Roman, an aviation consultant who lives in Ft. Myers, came to the 21 Convention for the second time. Roman said he was originally attracted to the first convention he went to in the summer of 2010 due to what it had to offer. “I looked at the lineup of the speakers that they had, the content, and I figured that it would be a good impact in my life,” Roman said. He said attending the convention a second time was a good networking experience for him, and that this convention is a refresher for him on what life is all about. “What I take away is a new thirst for life. A lot of times, we go through the same activities day in and day out, you kind of lose perspective on what life is all about, and all of the opportunities that it holds,” Roman said. He said he would like to attend more conventions when his time and finances permit. David Wright, a hotel clerk who works at the Hammocks at Marathon, attended this convention for the first time. He said he was drawn to this convention due to the potential for self-improvement. “I was looking to improve my skills with women, also with work,

business, exercise and nutrition,” Wright said. “I’m just looking for a higher quality of life.” He said he is going to practice the lessons he learned from DJ Fuji, a dating coach who spoke about dating, lifestyle and seduction at the convention. “I’m going to focus on what DJ Fuji told me to do. I’m going to focus on
correcting a few basic mistakes, like leaning in when I’m speaking to women, gesturing with my hands too much,” Wright said. “I’m going to work on my fitness and my fashion.” The next U.S. event will be in Austin, Texas in August, and the next overseas event will be in London on June 22-24, 2012.

Arnold Day celebrates classic action characters FROM A1 “Even if we only make 100 or 200 bucks, that shouldn’t go toward anything but a foundation,” said Boylston, who graduated from UCF in 2005 with a degree in marketing and mass communications. “That shouldn’t go in my pocket, I do this for fun every year.” According to Boylston, he has been a Schwarzenegger fan since birth. However, Boylston made it clear that he was a fan of Schwarzenegger the action hero, not the actor recently caught in a lovechild scandal. “It’s not about celebrating Arnold as a person, it’s about celebrating the character that he has created and the movies he has created,” Boylston said. Brown said that since its inception in 2004, all those involved in planning Arnold Day have been trying to out do the celebration from the year before. “It kind of became one of those things to see if we could escalate it every year, to make it more and more absurd,” Brown said. “Which led to getting a cake, and then eventually doing drink specials every time there was an absurd climax in the movie.” Two years ago, Arnold Day founders decided to take it up a notch, hiring an Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonator to make an appearance at the celebration. “We were sitting down, and Arnold Day had been going on for about an hour, he didn’t show up until 1 o’clock,” Gulisano said. “We were debating whether or not he was going to show up in costume in character, or in normal clothes and then

go in the back and change. And as we are discussing that, he kicks the door in dressed as Arnold from Terminator 2, runs inside; everyone is screaming and cheering and he ran over to the first beer he saw and he just chugged it and started yelling. It was awesome.” According to Boylston, Arnold Day has been a way for him to remember a simpler time, when taking your child to see a rated R movie was not at all out of the ordinary. “When I was younger, it wasn’t taboo to take a kid to see a rated R movie,” Boylston said. “My dad would take me to go see Terminator and the worst thing I was going to see was maybe a curse word here and there, and maybe someone got shot. R-rated movies back then weren’t ultra-violent like they are today.” According to Boylston, action movies these days aren’t the way they used to be. There isn’t as much

excitement for the release, kids are no longer begging for toys from their favorite action movies, and most lack the staying power that movies starring action heroes such as Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. “Its nice to step back into that era every once in a while,” Boylston said. “Sure, a lot of the movies are cheesy and the acting surely isn’t up to the standards of today, nor are a lot of the special effects, but it’s just fun.” For more information, please visit www.ArnoldDay.com

WRAP FOOTBALL NFL PLAYERS:BACK TO WORK NEW YORK — A big green and white sign greeted Mark Sanchez as he drove up to the New York Jets’training facility for the first time in months. And, boy, was it a pleasant sight. “Welcome Back!”it blared in block letters, followed by “Here Come The Jets.” “It was wonderful,” Sanchez said with a big smile Tuesday. “Now we’re back and we can start playing, so it’s good.” The gates were up, facilities were open all around the league and NFL players finally went to work. Now, they need to get ready for the season in a hurry. “It’s good to be back, get everything over with and just come back and feel welcome again,” said Brett Swain of the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. “Get back in the roll of things and get camp started.” After a lockout that lasted 4 months ended Monday with an agreement between the NFL and its players, teams’ facilities were buzzing with activity Tuesday. During the lockout, the Tennessee Titans had a chain around their closed front gate to keep players out. That chain was gone and the front gate wide open as rookie quarterback Jake Locker, the No. 8 pick overall in April, and quarterbacks Rusty Smith and Brett Ratliff were among the first to arrive. “It is nice to drive by and not have the lock on the gate and actually get a friendly smile when you come in here,” left tackle Michael Roos said. Players all around the league were allowed back in to meet with coaches, work out, take physicals and receive playbooks — among other things. “I came for the free lunch,” quipped Washington Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong. Teams were already starting a feeding frenzy on their drafted players and undrafted free agents, and were allowed to start negotiating with free agents in what will likely be a flurry of activity the league has never seen. Players such as Nnamdi Asomugha and Santonio Holmes will soon find out where they’re going — or staying — as free agency began. “With this whole free agency opening up, it’s going to be crazy,” Redskins quarterback John Beck said at the team’s facility in Ashburn, Va. “Our team’s going to look different.” Washington has several free agents to address this summer, including Santana Moss, Rex Grossman, Carlos Rogers and Rocky McIntosh. Oh, and there’s also the murky statuses of Donovan McNabb and Albert Haynesworth to deal with. The Jets and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have 16 players who are unrestricted free agents. “It would be interesting just to get a camera in (Tannenbaum’s office) and see how crazy it could be,” center Nick Mangold said. Teams were also greeting players by saying goodbye, at least for now. The New York Giants have told center and player representative Shaun O’Hara and guard Rich Seubert that they will be released. At Cowboys’camp in Irving, Texas, Dallas was set to release several highpriced players, including running back Marion Barber, receiver Roy Williams, right guard Leonard Davis and kicker Kris Brown. The Baltimore Ravens told running back Willis McGahee, former Pro Bowl tight end Todd Heap, wide receiver Derrick Mason and nose guard Kelly Gregg they will but cut. In Philadelphia, Michael Vick was one of the first to arrive at Eagles headquarters and said he’s ready to report Wednesday to training camp, even without a new contract. “Everything happens when it’s supposed to,” he said. “I put that in the hands of God and this organization to make it happen.” But, he suggested DeSean Jackson could hold out because the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is unhappy with his deal. Backup quarterback Kevin Kolb didn’t attend the voluntary workout Tuesday, and is on the trading block. In Cincinnati, Bengals owner Mike Brown insisted he won’t trade quarterback Carson Palmer, who wants to leave despite having four years left on his contract. Palmer told the team in January that he would retire if he’s not traded, and Brown said the team will move on without its franchise quarterback. The San Diego Chargers will have their big wide receiver back in camp as Vincent Jackson will sign his nonexclusive franchise tag on Friday as soon as he is allowed to do so. While most teams’rosters are nowhere close to looking the way they’ll be even at this time next week, Tuesday was all about getting back to football.

UNLOCKED ERIKA ESOLA Sports Editor
Joe Burnett has a chip on his shoulder. After the Pittsburgh Steelers cut him, Burnett was out of football for a year — unsigned and locked out. Now, with the NFL lockout officially over, Burnett can look forward to playing football again. This time, with the New York Giants. Burnett is out to prove himself as a starting kick returner in the NFL. “It’s just exciting to get back to football,” Burnett said. “When I walked in the locker room, it just felt like football and it put a smile on my face. Just seeing guys working out, talking to the coaches, it just felt good to be able to talk football on that caliber.” Burnett is beaming with happiness because of his new opportunity with the Giants. Things were different for Burnett during the lockout, however. Burnett struggled financially and emotionally. “Everything was tough because you never knew what your next income was going to come from. At one point in time I
wasn’t signed,” Burnett said. “I didn’t know where my income was gonna come from. I was calling my agent here and there; I was worried and frustrated because I didn’t even have a place to stay when I was back at home.” The lack of income also hurt Burnett’s family. “My mom was struggling at home, and it was like everything was negative withdrawals coming out of my (bank) account,” Burnett said. “It took a stress toll on me and I was panicking at one point.” Burnett still found a way to make it work, however. He picked up parttime work as a defensive backs coach at Eustis High School, where he was a former standout. “They got a win in their spring game and the DBs played really well. After that game, I was with those guys training them,” Burnett
said. “I held like a twoweek mini camp for the DBs every day at 11 a.m. We’d go out there and train and do agility drills. There were a lot of people out there from the community; [former UCF running back] Kevin Smith actually came out there, too. It was a nice turnout.” Burnett also worked part time at a recreation center. “God worked everything out,” Burnett said. “With coaching (spring football at Eustis High School) and working at a recreation center, I made a little bit of income so it worked itself out.” Along with financial instability, Burnett also ran in to trouble off
the field. He was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on March 16, despite passing

NBA needs to learn from NFL and end lockout The NFL got it done. The lockout is a thing of the past, and while it wasn’t avoided in the first place, missed games were. That’s what matters most. Unfortunately for the NBA, that means fans are going to be looking to the squabbling billionaire owners and millionaire players involved in their own respective lockout and saying, “If the NFL can do it, why can’t you?” Sure, the issues at stake in the NBA’s lockout are different.
STEVEN RYZEWSKI Staff columnist
While both disputes had plenty of their own respective smaller points, the driving force behind both lockouts was money. However, the NFL lockout was based on the dis-
persion of the league’s immense profitability. There was a lot of money being made, and the players felt entitled to more of it, among other things. The NBA, however, is dealing with the opposite. Most of the league’s owners say they’re losing money, and the players are going to have to do some compromising for the league itself to stay profitable. The business model needs a bit of tweaking in order for the league to be successful
for the long term. Many would argue that the players have too much power, especially when it comes to free agency. But those issues, and their validity, are neither here nor there right now. Neither the players nor the owners are going to have much success trying to make their cases to the public. In the NFL lockout, a good deal of the public perception was that the greedy owners were holding out too much of the money the
players earned on the field. In the NBA, the more frank realization is that the greedy players are making too much money, so much so that the greedy owners aren’t turning the profits they’d like. Good luck telling the average fan that the money he or she spends on tickets, parking, jerseys and concessions isn’t making the organization enough money to go

Burnett thankful for opportunity Aiken, FROM A6 a breathalyzer test twice. Burnett failed a field sobriety test. According to court documents, Burnett paid a $311.99 careless driving fine and had to attend an 8-hour traffic school. Because of the lockout, Burnett was not subject to any discipline by the NFL and is excited to be back on the field and put his past behind him. “My situation is like anyone else’s,” Burnett said. “I have to come in to camp and compete and earn a spot on the team …The way I look at it, I’m on the Giants.” The Giants are lacking depth on special teams as well as in the secondary, two areas where Burnett plays. Burnett says he wants to prove himself as a legitimate return threat in the NFL, as well as a defensive force. “With this opportunity and the fresh start I have with the Giants, I’m looking forward to coming in and contributing and helping out any way that I can,” Burnett said. “I’m coming in with a

Missed pro games likely to happen FROM A6 around. It doesn’t take an overly qualified individual to point out that both sides are going to have to make some serious concessions. And they’d better do it quick. All the chatter is that everyone had better brace for a long, hardened battle. This could last a while. If this ends up being the case, the owners and players may find there is even less profitability to go around whenever they return to business. The NBA has a good thing going with its current star-power situation. There are a lot of great players in the league right now, many of whom are still coming of age. There are some great storylines to follow, and players like LeBron James and his Miami Heat circus got people watching more games than they might have ordinarily watched. It’s a great product with plenty of momentum. All that good mojo could go down the drain the moment games start to be missed. Yes, the NBA has survived a lockout-shortened season before. But with the NFL working
depth at the wide receiver position. Both players should compete for playing time on offense and special teams during their rookie seasons. Aiken and Newsome have reported to their teams’ facilities and have already received their playbooks. The Jaguars’ training camp started July 27, while the Bills’ camp is set to kick off Friday.
through its own lockout in time to play games on schedule, this particular lockout will be held to a higher standard. Fans won’t, and shouldn’t have to, differentiate between the severity of the rifts of the two lockouts. Fans only have to measure the success of these labor negotiations by one factor: whether games are missed. The NBA could survive a shortened season. It could survive a missed season. People love basketball, and there’s nothing like the game played at the level that the NBA brings it. But make no mistake, tons of casual fans will be lost. Interest will go down, substantially. And public perception of the players as overpaid divas will quadruple. The NBA will likely survive whatever negative effects missed games would bring. But why just survive? It may just be wishful thinking, but were the NBA to solve its labor dispute before the season is scheduled to start, it could continue to build on last season’s momentum instead of just surviving. It may be wishful thinking, but hey, the NFL did it.

Five powerful female artists, headlined by Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj, brought a mix of hip-hop, pop, rap and techno as the The Femme Fatale tour made its way to Orlando’s Amway Center. NERVO, a group comprised of twin sisters Mim and Liv Nervo, opened the show on Wednesday, July 20. This DJ duo brought the crowd’s energy up upon entry, as they played remixes of Katy Perry, 30 Seconds to Mars and Cobra Starship. For the first time on tour in the United States, Jessie and the Toy Boys performed new singles, “Push It” and “Money Makes The Girl Go Round.” Jessie Malakouti, who leads the band, said all she has ever wanted to do was make happy pop songs, and she is doing just that. She moved out on her own at a young age and decided to pursue her music career in the United Kingdom for almost two years. But, she wanted to come back to the U.S. to compete in the up-andcoming pop music scene, giving her an opportunity to be a part of the tour. “It is amazing to be on tour, to be up on stage singing songs that I wrote,” Malakouti said. “I am a

Oviedo gym changes fitness mindset AUSTIN CASTLE Contributing Writer
CrossFit Country is not your average gym. It is a warehouse turned hardcore fitness facility that trains professional athletes, firefighters and anyone else wanting to really put the work in their workout. Owner Wayne Summers, a former UCF Knights baseball player, designed his facility on the CrossFit brand, known for its heart-pounding conditioning involving weightlifting, sprinting, gymnastics and plyometrics. He explained that his facility stands out because the focus is on real-life movements as opposed to the isolation movements performed on typical gym equipment. “No matter what you do … or who you are, you’re an athlete at some level,” Summers said. “Anything you do in life, we try to replicate here. Our whole goal is to restructure the mindset behind what fitness really is and what being in shape really looks like and get away from a physique pattern into a performancebased product.” Summers keeps CrossFit

athletes guessing on what any given day’s workout will involve by prescribing a unique fitness routine on a chalkboard at the start of each session. Workouts are scaled based on each athlete’s particular level of fitness. Kelsey Bealert, a graduate student at UCF and former Knights track and field athlete, started training at CrossFit Country in order to increase her competitiveness. Bealert said she has
already seen improvements in her performance at 5K races since she began training there six months ago. “I know people who I should compare myself with from earlier classes, and I know I want to beat them,” Bealert said. “When I know I have to put my name on this board, I will compete until I almost throw up just to have a better score than somebody.” Bealert was referring to the chalkboard where ath-
letes record their performance score at the end of each workout. This is usually counted in “AMRAPs” or “as many reps as possible” within a set time. “CrossFit is the sport of fitness,” Summers said, pointing to the list of names and corresponding scores. He explained that this competitive element is what compels athletes to constantly improve their performance. David Roberts, a 25-year-
old firefighter and paramedic with the Maitland Fire/Rescue Department, said he trains at CrossFit Country alongside other firefighters because “what we do in here almost directly correlates with the strenuous and physical part of our job.” Roberts said the short 20-to-30-minute workouts match the type of work he does at a house fire, where bursts of strenuous labor are followed by a brief recovery time while his oxygen tank is refilled. “We’re building up those functional movements, which is exactly what I do on a fire scene,” Roberts said. He said his training has increased the time he can last on a single tank during an air-consumption drill by about 25 percent. CrossFit Country, which is located close to UCF at 572 S. Econ Circle in Oviedo, will soon move into a nearby 13,000-square-foot facility as Summers plans to expand by offering new classes for children as young as preschool age. According to Summers, CrossFit Tykes will teach children “basic kinesthetic

OVERDOSE OF HEALTH
Ride the heat wave: avoid heat stroke with hydration When I walk outside, it’s as if heat and humidity wage war on my body. I feel lethargic, dehydrated and, occasionally, I get headaches from the change in temperature of outside heat to inside cool. The media is using words like “brutal” and “oppressive” to describe the heat wave, and they’re not far off. Recently, the heat index of Washington, D.C. reached 121 degrees. I imagine people were col-

lapsing on sidewalks and busting open fire hydrants. I think we all know that the extreme heat of summer can make us sick. However, most people
assume heat stroke affects only athletes and construction workers. The scary fact is that around 400 people die of heat stroke each year in America, according to a report by WLWT in Cincinnati, Ohio. The majority of them are people not engaging in strenuous work or exercise outdoors. In fact, you could sit on your front porch in the afternoon heat and still suffer a heat stroke. A heat stroke occurs

when the body’s temperature rises too rapidly and it cannot rid the excess heat fast enough. The cooling system, such as sweating, breaks down; Internal organs begin to overheat and, with enough heat, they stop working altogether. Extreme heat also makes your heart beat much faster. So even if you’re sitting in the shade outside, your heart is pumping more rapidly than normal because your heart has to work harder to push blood to the skin and muscles. Blood on the surface of the body is another mechanism of cooling the body, and aids in sweating.
Heat stroke can cause confusion, seizures, permanent disability and even death if medical treatment is not provided. That’s why it’s so important to take the necessary precautions this summer. Heat exhaustion comes before a heat stroke. If you feel dizzy, faint, are sweating heavily, have muscle cramps, a headache, rapid heartbeat, nausea or cold and clammy skin, get out of the heat immediately and drink water. If ignored, heat exhaustion turns to heat stroke. On hot, humid days, environmental pollution lingers in the air and
causes plants to release more pollen and spores, triggering an asthma attack. Additionally, some asthma medications make it hard for the body to sweat. The end of the sweltering dog days of summer seems to be far off. It may seem obvious, but the simple precautions are commonly ignored. If you’re going to exercise outdoors, do it in the morning or evening. Stay hydrated. Reapply sunscreen every two or three hours. Most importantly, make the best of it. What better excuse than a heat wave to hang out by the pool all day with friends.
FROM A8 major Britney Spears fan and Nicki Minaj fan. I have to pinch myself everyday being on tour with them.” She said her biggest inspirations are Madonna, Missing Persons and No Doubt. “My fans have been so patient with me and so supportive, I would not be here without them,” Malakouti said. “My biggest goal is to have ‘Push It’ become a No. 1 record around the world by the end of the tour.” Nicki Minaj, who is known for her unique, out-there styles and multicolored wigs kept it a little less wacky on the tour. She sported a blonde wig as she opened with “Roman’s Revenge.” She also sang “Moment 4 Life,” “Did It On’em,” “Super Bass” and many more. “My favorite moment of the concert was when Nicki left the stage and then came back for an encore to sing “Super Bass,” Ashley Kohrt, a UCF graduate in pre-clinical allied health science, said. “It was a great song to end her set on, and I think it got everyone pumped up to see Britney.” She said before the concert she was a bigger fan of Spears, but after seeing Minaj perform she

downloaded her album off of iTunes because she was so impressed with her performance. Full of glitter from head-to-toe, Spears took the stage about two hours into the show. With plenty of backup dancers and stage props galore, she played songs from previous albums, but mostly stuck with her seventh studio album, titled Femme Fatale, which was released on March 29, 2011. Fans screamed as she performed “Womanizer,” “If U Seek Amy,” “(Drop Dead) Beautiful,” “Gimme More,” “Till the World Ends” and the lead single off Femme Fatale, “Hold It Against Me,” which has become Spears’ fourth U.S. No. 1 single. The album debuted on top of the Billboard 200 chart and made Spears the only female artist ever to have
six albums debut at No. 1, and have seven albums debut in the top two spots. UCF junior political science major, Gina Huber said, “My favorite moment of the night was the opening song and beginning of Britney’s performance, the adrenaline started to pump, the feeling was awesome.” Being such a big fan of Spears, Huber said she received the concert ticket as a birthday gift from her friends and it was one of the best nights she was able to share with her friends. “Britney will always rock the stage, she even brought fans on the stage to dance with her and the energy at that moment was priceless,” UCF junior marketing major Samantha Blanco said. “The ticket price was worth it and the show was amazing.”
College classes coming soon FROM A8 concepts” such as how to walk in a straight line, how to roll and how to get up after falling. CrossFit Kids will prepare children for sports and “teach them to move like an athlete.” Summers also said he is planning college-specific classes and will provide discounts, such as one week free, for college students. He currently offers a class on Saturday mornings as a free trial class for those interested in joining. Saturday workouts typically involve small team-based games.

Repeal of DADT will benefit U.S. L
ast Friday was a watershed moment for all gay Americans serving in our armed forces. President Barack Obama and military leaders certified that the military is finally prepared to implement the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law, which set the stage for a 60-day review by Congress. The law will officially be repealed on Sept. 20, according to Obama. The battle to repeal this law has been a long time coming. This law has unjustly discriminated against a group of individuals simply because of their sexual orientation. It appears, however, that this repeal has taken place despite the wishes of some conservatives. According to Mother Jones, Republicans in the House of Representatives pursued a laundry list of measures that were meant to put the brakes on this legislation. Some prominent Republicans, such as Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), even took to the airwaves to voice their reservations with the repeal of this law, according to Mother Jones. “I really don’t think we should be putting people who are in harm’s way, in very close quarters, in any kind of uncomfortable position,” Hutchison said. Since when does being
gay mean that you can’t keep your hands to yourselves? We find it hard to believe that gay soldiers would have any trouble conforming to the standards of conduct expected from a member of our armed forces. A poll conducted last year finds that most United States troops are just fine with gays serving openly in the military, according to USA Today. Some service members, such as Sgt. John Miller, a 37-yearold serving with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division in Afghanistan, have expressed no concern with the repeal of this law, according to Mother Jones. “As long as everyone does their job, it’s cool,” Miller said. “There hasn’t been a lot of talk about [certification]. People are people, and we all have a lot of work to do.” The damage done due to this law has been very significant. According to the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, more than 14,500 service members have been fired under DADT since 1993. Many of these service members may choose not to reenlist, despite a repeal of the policy. The Log Cabin Republicans, a group of gay conservatives, chose to go against their own party and challenge this discriminatory law.
Repeal of this law may even have a potential secondary effect that has not been considered. According to Mother Jones, Vermont Law School announced on Friday in an email statement that “it will rekindle its relationship with military recruiters, banned from campus since 1985, in the wake of the Pentagon’s DADT repeal certification.” This decision follows recent decisions by Harvard and Columbia University to restore ROTC programs that had been banned for quite some, as well as on-campus military recruiting. This development could represent a significant boost for military recruitment. The softening of relations between educational institutions such as this one and our military is a significant victory that could be a benefit for all of us. Gay people should have every right to serve in our armed forces without having to hide who they are. Gay people will not cause any disturbance or discomfort to other service members, and we must continue to support the repeal of this legislation. Ending this policy could potentially increase recruitment and improve the strength and flexibility of our military. The repeal of this law is the right thing to do for our country.
