But many legal experts, such as University of Florida professor Mark Fenster, agree that the agreement should be treated as if it were made between Manigault Newman and the government. There came a point where Manigault Newman transitioned from working with the Trump campaign to working for the White House, where she was paid by the federal government, according to Fenster.
In the [Lisa Taylor’s] lab at the University of Florida, researchers are giving male jumping spiders a makeover. After knocking them unconscious for a few minutes with carbon dioxide, the scientists paint the bright-red faces of Habronattus pyrrithrix black with liquid eyeliner, or stick false eyelashes to the heads of Maevia inclemens with Elmer’s glue. Welcome to Extreme Makeover: Arachnid Edition.
"This is one of those difficult questions at the margins of science and the judge found the evidence simply wasn't inadmissible," said Lars Noah, a law professor at the University of Florida.
A professor at University of Florida’s Levin College of Law who specializes in contract litigation, Bill Hamilton, said contract amendments aren’t unusual if it’s in the party’s best interest to extend deadlines and add more services. But he said the question is how the postponements affected not only FDOT and Conduent, but the people the contract was set up to benefit.
The University of Florida’s Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering is already one of the nation’s finest, and it has a new leader who’s spent many hours with Miami-Dade farmers. Kati Migliaccio worked for a decade at the UF/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Tropical Research and Education Center in Homestead.
When Florida Sea Grant director Karl Havens, a well-regarded expert on water quality who has studied pollution all over the world, began hearing about a deepening algae bloom in his own backyard in Lake Okeechobee this summer, he struggled to find information that could tell him what was going on.
Scientists know that the theory still doesn’t explain everything about the universe. So they keep testing it time and again. So far, nobody has been able to overthrow it. Although the effects of general relativity have been seen before, this was the first detection made by observing the motion of a star near a supermassive black hole. “To me, that’s what makes this so cool,” said Clifford Will, a University of Florida physicist who did not participate in the research. Will hopes his colleagues will be able to discover stars even closer to the black hole, where the effects of relativity would be stronger. This finding “is really the opening episode,” he said. “The future, I think, is going to be very exciting.”
“I use DEET all the time when I’m working in the field,” says Jonathan Day, a professor of medical entomology at the University of Florida.
DEET seems to work by binding to CO2 receptors in the nose-like appendage a mosquito uses to probe a person’s skin for blood, Day says. Rather than kill the mosquito, DEET somehow blocks the insect’s ability to feed. “It works on contact—not on smell—so mosquitos will still land on you but they won’t bite,” he explains.
“The results of our study are worrisome,” lead author Dr. Naykky Singh Ospina, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Florida, told TODAY. “They suggest that physicians interrupt patients extremely quickly when they are expressing their concerns.” The findings are based on an analysis of 112 doctor visits that were recorded between 2008 and 2015 in general practices in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and at the Mayo Clinic and its affiliated clinics.
“There’s something about financial decisions that goes beyond knowledge,” Aner Sela, an associate professor of marketing at the University of Florida whose work focuses on how people make choices, told me. “They have a unique flavor, and there’s something about that flavor we don’t like. They feel very cold, very abstract and analytical, and it’s something that you just don’t want to do.”
Almost six decades ago, Thomas Emmel became the first and only person to collect what is now officially known as Cyllopsis tomemmeli.
