    ‘New standard’: Micah Handlogten details self improvement

    Florida’s sophomore center Micah Handlogten is coming off one of his better games of the 2023-2024 season against Auburn. While the North Carolina native only had four points, he tallied five blocks and three steals in the Gators’ win over the Tigers on Saturday evening. “Even though he produced really well against Georgia – 23 and 17 – I really thought his most impactful game, in terms of winning, might have been Saturday,” Head Coach Todd Golden said on Handlogten’s performance against Auburn. Handlogten’s plus-minus against Auburn was 18, the second highest on the Gators in the contest (Walter Clayton, 19). “He played so hard,” Golden added. “One of the…

    Dietitian Explains Health Benefits and Foods to Try

    A new study is shedding light on the health benefits of the Atlantic diet. Like the Mediterranean diet, this style of eating is based on the dietary patterns of people living in a specific region of Europe, but this one hones in on northwest Spain and northern Portugal. These populations have some of the lowest incidences of heart disease. The most recent study in JAMA Network found that those who followed the Atlantic diet for a 6-month period had a lower risk of developing metabolic syndrome, a group of condition that increase risk of heart disease and diabetes. While this research is promising, the Atlantic diet is not that well-known. But…

The court did not call for an immediate cease-fire, nor did it rule on whether Israel is in fact committing a genocide, but it did instruct Israel to take provisional measures to prevent genocidal acts. In its ruling, the court noted “a large number of deaths and injuries, as well as the massive destruction of homes, the forcible displacement of the vast majority of the population, and extensive damage to civilian infrastructure.” A less noted pillar of the case against Israel, however, is…
