It won’t be all sun and fun when the Ospreys fly south in November. Four years after claiming the championship title, the University of North Florida men’s basketball team will return to Mexico in November to compete in the 2014 Men's Cancun Challenge Tournament, one of the premier tournaments in Division I college basketball. “The guys are really excited that the team is being invited back after four years,” said UNF Coach Matt Driscoll. “Any time we get the chance to play against some high-level competition and spend time in a place like Cancun, well, that’s an easy sell.
The Ospreys will compete in the Mayan Division along with Elon, Liberty and Morgan State. The Riviera Division includes Virginia Tech, Miami (Ohio), Northern Iowa and Northwestern. The tournament begins with eight games played in the United States between Nov. 19-30, with the four teams in the Riviera Division hosting the four teams in the Mayan Division before all eight travel to Cancun to play two games for their respective division championships. All four games of the Riviera Division will be nationally televised live from the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya on CBS Sports Network. The Mayan Division games will be webcast live on CBSsports.com, ULive.The last time the Ospreys swooped to Cancun in 2010, they defeated Morgan State for a 59-52 victory in the championship game of the Mayan Division bracket of the Cancun Challenge. That season, UNF upset Wyoming and defeated both Prairie View A&M and Morgan State on the road to the Challenge championship. UNF Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Moon believes tournaments like this are vital to spreading Osprey fandom beyond Northeast Florida. The team’s last voyage to Cancun opened some eyes about the quality of the UNF program, and Moon anticipates more of the same from an experienced and athletic Osprey lineup.“Every season our team plays challenging games against some of the best teams in the nation,” Moon said. “It is a tremendous opportunity for the guys to face elite competition while also showing the nation the level of talent we have at UNF. I feel like our team does a good job of competing, and the Cancun Challenge is another great showcase for Osprey Basketball.”Driscoll said the team is eagerly anticipating the tournament, as it is one of the unique events on the college basketball calendar. Teams stay and play at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya where the resort's convention center ballroom is converted into an arena that provides fans a close-up view of the games. The competition might be intense, but the players will have some downtime to check out the outdoor pools and private beaches. There will also be a bit of team bonding along the way, as the players will be on the road for 10 days. “It’s something of a learning process for them,” Driscoll said. “They’ll get to know each other better and learn more about another country in the process. The focus is on the competition, but there are all sorts of good things that come from participating in a tournament like this.”
Jason John didn’t intend to be a painter.
After a series of uninspiring art classes
in high school, he became a graphic design student at a Northeastern
Pennsylvania community college.
“They put me in a painting class by
mistake,” John said. “I realized that I wasn’t touching computers. The option
was to take a lot of computer courses.”
He decided to stick with painting.
Now he’s an assistant professor of
painting in the University of North Florida’s Art and Design Department and one
of eight painters from across the country to be featured in “Get Real: New
American Painting,” opening Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Museum of ContemporaryArt Jacksonville, a cultural resource of UNF. The exhibition, which also
features Haley Hasler, Andrea Kowch, Bryan LeBoeuf, Jenny Morgan, Kevin Muente,
Frank Oriti and Kevin Peterson, provides a snapshot of the current landscape of
realist painting in the United States and explores themes such as narrative
portraiture and social, psychological and magical realism.
“The Museum has the promotional ability
of a great gallery, but it has the educational side of a university,” he said.
“In that way, it really is the best of both worlds.”
He said it’s difficult to predict what
exhibitions will help promote his work.
“But I think MOCA is definitely something
you can bank on having a lot of energy coming out of it.”
John’s work has appeared all over the
United States, including solo exhibitions in Cincinnati, Ohio; Lubbock, Texas;
and Ventura, Calif. In 2012, he was inducted into the Museum of Realist Art in
Boston. His paintings have appeared on the covers of magazines and have been
featured in many art journals.
MOCA Jacksonville is one of many reasons
he moved to Northeast Florida. After receiving a B.F.A. in painting from
Kutztown University and an M.F.A. in painting and drawing from Indiana
University of Pennsylvania, he taught at IUP for a time before joining UNF.
“When I came to Jacksonville, I just kind
of fell in love with the school and the city,” he said.
John said he gives the University and
department leadership high marks and appreciates the faculty and staff
camaraderie. He also described the cross-discipline teaching in the Art and
Design Department as innovative. He said teaching influences his art more than
“You’re constantly telling students they
have to push themselves and answer to their work,” he said. “I always have to
go back to my studio and follow my own advice.”
And if he doesn’t?
“My students will call me on it,” he
said. “It makes me think about what it is to be an artist.”
He said his students drive him to keep up
with what’s happening in contemporary art. He applies the same analysis and
filters he uses on student work to his own creations.
“Some art teachers think students lower
their standards, but I think the opposite,” he said. “I think they bring me
Although some students might research his
artwork before they take his classes, he said most sign up because of what they
know about his teaching ability.
“I wouldn’t want my students to depend on
me for my art,” he said. “I want them to depend on my teaching.”
Although he will help students with
technical questions, he said he doesn’t believe in training students to paint
like he does. He usually doesn’t use his own work as examples in class,
although he will work with some independent studies students on “Get Real,”
especially in the studio he will set up at MOCA Jacksonville during the
exhibition. He will create a painting throughout the exhibition, providing
visitors a peek at a working artist’s space and the possibility of catching him
John’s paintings reveal his masterful
realist technique broken by fissures of dripping paint. Many of the artists in
“Get Real” use classical art techniques as John does. He said understanding art
history informs his work, even if the inspiration might be more subliminal.
Sometimes he pays direct homage to the masters, such as basing the composition of
his “Birdboy” on Flemish Baroque artist Anthony Van Dyck’s “Self-portrait with
When discussing his work, John often
focuses on three central themes — identity, space and composition. All three
are wrapped into the helmets his subjects wear, which he calls veils. Inspired
by his passion for history, the headpieces are fashioned after Viking or Roman
helmets. In his research, he learned that Vikings would appropriate visual
elements from the villages they conquered into their armor, essentially
destroying one thing to create another. He constructs them from cardboard and
packaging, which often contain telltale symbols of their origins from Amazon or
other shippers, adding an element of found art.
These veils obscure the original identity
of his models, allowing them to take on new roles. In addition to painting
close friends, John often hires his students based on attributes he’s looking
for in a painting. Although some models balk at wearing the veils, he said many
relish the opportunity to adopt new characters.

The University of North Florida’s Interfaith Center is the
only public university and the only Florida university to win a national
Interfaith Youth Core Award.
Of the 162 competing schools across the country, only six
were named winners by the Interfaith Youth Core, an organization that works
with institutions of higher learning to build interfaith cooperation by
committing to religious diversity on an institution-wide basis.
leaders in the Interfaith Center were recognized for the “Better
Together @ UNF” campaign, a
national movement across college campuses in which people organize across lines
of religious difference to make an impact on some of the most important issues.
The purpose is to show that various religious and philosophical backgrounds can
be a bridge of cooperation and that the world can be made better
“The Interfaith Center’s professional staff serves as
mentors to the student leaders of ‘Better Together @ UNF,’” said Dr. Tarah
Trueblood, Center director. “We could not be more proud of their achievements.
Recognition by Interfaith Youth Core is well-deserved.”
The goal of the “Better Together @ UNF” campaign is to raise awareness about
human trafficking. Florida is ranked third in the United States for the most
reported human trafficking cases, making this issue particularly relevant. The
UNF group strategically partnered with Rethreaded, a local organization that works with survivors of the sex
trade, and made their primary goal to help the community understand human
trafficking as a reality.
The campaign featured informational sessions, documentaries,
survivor talks, art exhibits and a series of community service projects to
inform the campus about the issue. The group incorporated the issue into a
Better Together Day event in April, gathering donations for a human trafficking
survivor drive. In total, the campaign reached 3,000 people on campus and
showed how interfaith leadership can have an impact on an important issue.

Wheat is one of the world’s oldest and
most important grains. Don’t follow the avoidance trend, but instead enjoy it
wisely. Dr. Judith Rodriguez, department of
Nutrition and Dietetics chair, discusses wheat myths and provides tips for including
it in a healthy diet.
bread is a whole grain or whole-wheat product.
is a common misconception. Wheat bread on a label merely indicates that wheat
flour was used to make the bread, not that it’s a whole-wheat or whole-grain
product. Check to ascertain that whole-wheat flour is listed as the first
white flour does not have any nutrients.
the whole grain is refined, the outer layer, known as the bran, and the germ
are removed from the kernel of wheat. Only the endosperm, which contains most
of the starch, remains. This is then ground and used to make white flour,
commonly referred to as refined flour. In the U.S., refined flour must have
some of the nutrients that were lost during the refining process added back,
which is called enrichment. So, refined flours have B vitamins and iron added
back. However, refined enriched white flour is lower in fiber and some
micronutrients that are in the whole grain.
Myth: You should be
eating gluten-free foods.
who have celiac disease need to avoid any foods that contain gluten — not just
wheat. Some persons may have celiac disease or be gluten sensitive, which means
they have side effects such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, upset stomach, fatigue
and headaches. But only a very small portion of the population actually has
celiac disease or is gluten sensitive, so it’s important to see a physician and
be tested so you aren’t subjecting yourself to unnecessary food deprivation or
missing a correct and important medical diagnosis.
free” means “gluten free.”
is a protein that is found in some grains. Gluten is present in grains such as
barley, rye, triticale and wheat. When you eat any of these grains, either
alone (as in cooked wheat berries) you are consuming gluten. Also, commercial
food may be processed or packaged in an area where gluten-containing foods were
also made, so you need to be careful. If you’re looking for “gluten-free”
products, read the label for any of the gluten containing ingredients and don’t
assume that it is “gluten free” because the label says “contains no wheat.”
best weight loss diet is the wheat-free diet.
is a misconception that the wheat-free diet is healthy and you are
automatically going to lose weight on a wheat-free diet. It only works if your
caloric intake is low enough for weight loss. This diet doesn’t offer
flexibility, an important component to long-term weight loss, and it severely
restricts what you can eat, perhaps shortchanging you on some important
nutrients. A simple guide is to make some of the recommended six servings of
grains — three of which should be whole grains — in moderate amounts and
serving sizes. Try a whole wheat English muffin at breakfast, couscous and
veggie salad at lunch and wheat berries as your grain side dish at dinner.
