See story, page 4. By KIMBERLY LINTON Alligator Contributing Writer A new study center could create competition for TutoringZone. Nine tutors from TutoringZone in Gainesville have left the company to form a new academic study service called StudyEdge. The decision to split was announced at the beginning of the break between Summers A and B, said Margaret Kelsey, director of communications for TutoringZone. While the permanent location is under construction, StudyEdge will be offering live review sessions for Summer B at UF Hillel, located at 2020 W University Ave. sion Tuesday. The new location is anticipated to open Sept. 1 at the former Goerings Book Store location, 1717 NW First Ave., behind Tijuana Flats and Jimmy Johns. StudyEdge will offer free review sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Hillel during Summer B. StudyEdge tutors are trying to be more accessible to students, said Graham Rees, co-founder of StudyEdge. He said they want students to be well-acquainted with the tutors so they will feel comfortable asking questions. StudyEdge tutors started a new company because they were tired of Tutor ingZone repeatedly ignoring student concerns, Rees said. They wanted to offer TutoringZone would plug holes with said. TutoringZone is being affected by the loss of its seasoned tutors. When its physics 1 with calculus tutor left, the company was left without anyone else to teach the summer review sessions. Preregistered students have to get their money refunded and take their business elsewhere. For students, we would have loved to have been training someone for physics, Kelsey said. We refuse to throw anyone who we havent trained into the mix. Jess Bodzo, 19, a sophomore computer science engineering major, said he didnt know this course was no longer being offered until he went to TutoringZone this week. He was told he will get his money back but was not given an explanation. After contacting his physics tutor on Facebook, he learned about StudyEdge. Kelsey wants to squash rumors that the new company is a switchover. There are two different companies now, she said. Francesca Dickhaus, a 19-year-old sophomore biology major, was a regular at TutoringZone her freshman year. She took reviews for organic chemissummer. Now, she said, her tutor works at StudyEdge. Like many of her classmates, she has a tough decision to make deciding which review service is better for her. As a student, the most important thing is who is teaching the material, she said. I dont care about being loyal to one company, Dickhaus said.New company splinters from TutoringZone THE MONEY WILL FINANCE EDUCATION RESEARCHBy ERIN JESTERAlligator Writer UF education researchers have received two federal grants totaling $5.5 million for studies focused on reducing behavioral problems that disrupt the learning environment. One $4 million grant will fund a study on behavioral intervention techniques in preschool-aged children, headed by Maureen Conroy of UF and Kevin Sutherland of Vir ginia Commonwealth University. Another $1.5 million grant will support the research of UF special education faculty members Stephen Smith and Ann Daunic into developing curricula to help control behavioral issues in grades six through eight. Conroy and Sutherlands research will examine their BEST in CLASS intervention programs effect on preschoolers in the classroom. The program teaches teachers behavioral intervention strategies, such as using rules and routines, couragement and keeping children engaged, Conroy said. Next year, she will be collaboratively working with Alachua County Head Start. We want to prevent those behaviors so that when they go to school, they can be successful, she said. Conroy noted that preliminary research has shown that BEST in CLASS techniques are both successful at increasing engagement in children while decreasing disruption and aggression. Smiths research, on the other hand, will lead to the development of an entire curriculum for middle with emotional and behavioral disorders.UF obtains $5.5 million in grants UF Re searc h StudyEdge wiil offer free reviews during Summer B For students, we would have loved to have been training someone for Physics.

STATEMan pays $1 Orlando park ORLANDO, Fla. A Michigan man has paid a $1 Florida parking ticket more than 35 years overdue. Orlando police say they received Stanley Bakers payment for a Nov. 7, 1975, parking ticket Tuesday. The 89-year-old Pentwater, Mich., man included a note reading, Better late than never! Bakers son, Fritz Baker, says his father found the ticket in a book bought at an Orlando garage sale in 1995. He says his father decided to it wasnt issued to him.

By KELLI FOLSE Alligator Contributing Writer For a battle that hopes to claim 150 units of blood, the scene is ironically tranquil. The only visible aggression is the violent pumping of stress balls as the donors attempt to enlarge their veins for easy penetration. LifeSouth Community Blood Centers 18-hour Battle of the Sexes Blood Drive began at 6 a.m. Wednesday at the LifeSouth Community Blood Center, Gainesville Health and Fitness Main Center and Gainesville Health and Fitness for Women. By 3:45 p.m. LifeSouth had practically reached its goal of 150 donors with 76 women and 50 men. By 5:30 p.m., it had surpassed its goal at 160 donors with 93 women and 67 men. Clay Gibbons, the District Community Development Coordinator for LifeSouth, said events like this are extremely time and returning donors, especially with the Fourth of July around the corner. We have to collect blood every single day, Gibbons said, and close to the holidays, people arent thinking about donating. Gibbons said LifeSouth has to collect about 1,000 units of blood a week in order to keep the local hospitals stocked. The winning sex, along ticipants, will be announced today on LifeSouths Facebook page. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2011Courtesy Photo Benny Benassi will perform for an 18-and-up event at Florida Theatre of Gainesville on Friday. Limited tickets will be available at the door. MUSICBy GABRIELA ROSIASAlligator Contributing Writer The electronic-music scene in Gainesville continues to boom. On Friday, techno fans at the Florida Theatre of Gainesville, 233 W University Ave., will welcome world-renowned artist Benny Benassi. The 18-and-up event is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. and will feature opening acts Adrian Villaverde and David Solano. General admission tickets priced from $25 to $45 sold out within two weeks, said Antonio Mercado of The Dynasty Group, which is putting on the show. However, Mercado said, the group is in talks with authorities in an effort to expand the number of tickets for sale available at the door. The Dynasty Group has also been working with UFs Student Government Productions to get the word out. SGP Vice Chairman Jeff Schnier said the organization wants to help create awareness of local entertainment and is looking to show incoming freshmen what Gainesville nightlife is all about. The Italian-born Benassi reached worldwide success in 2003 with his solo album Hypnotica, featur ing the widely known song Satisfaction. Benassi has headlined at music festivals such as Coachella, Ultra Music Festival and most recently at Electric Daisy Carnival.Electronic musician to play Friday SANCTUARY SEEKS VOLUNTEERSBy VICTORIA COLSONAlligator Contributing Writer The volunteers at the Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary dont come to monkey around. The 12-acre sanctuary, located north of Gainesville at 13915 N. State Road 121, has been open since 1999 and is home to 120 monkeys, including white-faced capuchins, brown-faced capuchins, spider monkeys, squirrel monkeys, marmosets and tamarin monkeys. We are looking for dedicated, committed volunteers, said Mimi Sanada, the apprentice caregiver since July. There are several open positions for to caring for the monkeys, according to Ashlei Martin, a former apprentice and employee at the Jacksonville Zoo. A couple months before Sanada ar rived at Jungle Friends, the sanctuary rescued a group of monkeys from another sanctuary, which was basically a roadside zoo. Three infant monkeys that were rejected from their mothers were able to be saved. I had the opportunity to nurse them back to health and socialize them with other monkeys, Sanada said. That is riences I been able to be a part of. Most of the monkeys at Jungle Friends were obtained from owners who were illegally keeping monkeys, from medical research facilities or from the enter tainment industry, according to junglefriends.org. Jungle Friends provides a natural environment for the monkeys, giving them the same surroundings as if they were living in the wild. The sanctuary was originally started in Las Vegas, but the climate was too dry for the New World monkeys, or monkeys originating from the Americas, said Kari Bagnall, the founder of Jungle Friends. The Gainesville weather, along with the presence of UFs veterinary school, was the perfect new home for the sanctuary. Just being able to wake up every day and being able to give these monkeys a second chance to live in a natural environment is completely worth the effort, Martin said. People interested in volunteering for Jungle Friends can call 386-462-7779 or email the staff at info@junglefriends.org.Volunteers make primates feel at home Gibbons Blood drive pushes to meet local needsBy CLARE LENNONAlligator Writer Unlike the Florida afternoon sky, Santa Fe College students will not be making it rain any time soon. Tuition at Santa Fe will increase by 10 percent this year as part of the budget President Jackson Sasser recently presented. Sasser said the increase would amount to a little more than $200 per year for a student taking 30 credit hours. Santa Fe sophomore Kyle McKay said he wont complain about the tuition increase, but he acknowledged that he does not pay his own tuition. Sasser thinks Santa Fe students will still pay less than most state college and university students because most institutions are increasing tuition as much as possible. Sasser could have raised the tuition by up to 13 percent, according to state legislation signed by Gov. Rick Scott June 1. The tuition raise comes as the school continues to take budget cuts that have hit since 2007. McKay said he understands the school is in a tough place. Were going to have to start suffering the consequences, basically, of the economy were in right now, he said. The economy is partly what prompted Sasser to increase employees salaries. He wanted to respect the needs of current employees and be able to recruit in the future. Sasser said Santa Fe has already missed out on top candidates because of salaries. And thats tragic, he said. The 2011-2012 budget featured a the schools employees. All employees will get a raise and an additional 2.5 percent cost of living increase. The cost of living increase will be applied to the postraise salary. Sasser emphasized that the tuition increase is not directly related to raises. David Price, president of the Santa Fe College Senate and professor of history and political science, estimated that his raise will be around $3,000. Price will have to put about $1,500 towards the Florida Retirement System. Employees who have been at the school longer will receive larger raises.

For many of us, the Fourth acts as just another excuse to jet-stream unholy amounts of ethanol into our systems as we butcher another Lee Greenwood song and blow shit up. And why shouldnt we? Its American. But for some, the holiday serves as a bittersweet reminder of a country that once was. For them, the songs of glory and the tales of patriots gone before serve as a guidepost showing the distance traveled from that great day in 1776 to the cold and dark forest of uncertainty where we now aimlessly wander. these past few years. Men and women now go home to their families with less money and more concerns than they did years before. The house that holds them, a structure built on the visions of Jefferson and Lincoln, now shakes violently from the winds of ideological division. Enemies cheer as our light, which for decades has shone forth as a beacon of hope morrow will not come. But we know better. Our pocketbooks may be lighter than before, our steps may not have as great of a bounce they once did and our bellies may be bigger than others would like, but we still have the knowledge, the ability and the desire to make our country great. We have it in our power, as Thomas Paine once said and President Reagan once reminded us, to begin the world over again. This Fourth of July, take the time to remember the things that have built our country into that out-dazzle. Why capital punishment needs to dieIing burnt at the stake or saw a squirming decapitated head after it was guillotined, would they still be in too great of a power for the government to wield, and for that reason, I am staunchly against it. Recall that our Declaration of Independence states that all men are endowed by God with certain rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Declaration of Independence is in stark contrast with the convoluted thinking that those rights are derived from the author ity of a government. The Declaration argues that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are inherent in all men. ing those rights cannot be forfeited, even if you wanted to forfeit them. The death penalty clearly goes against the logic of the Declaration of Independence. We have ceded our unalienable right to life to the government that can and will kill you for heinous crimes. Since weve ceded life, it implies that well also allow the government to take our liberty and pursuit of happiness, even though the founders said those rights come from God. Additionally, there is a huge cost difference between the death penalty and life in prison. According to a George Mason University study, the average cost of capital punishment in Indiana is about $120,000 more than life in prison. In North Carolina, that difference jumps to more than $160,000! The contributors to this phenomenon are mostly huge upfront trial costs: grand juries, sequestration, additional security, requiring experienced lawyers (in some states), hiring the best experts and the list goes on. These upfront costs are even more expensive than a long-term stay at Alcatraz. Moreover, the average capital punishment trial lasts longer than a year, after a year of preparation. The whopping costs and time delays are an attempt to be meticulous and not wrongly convict someone to death. Recent advances in technology, especially DNA evidence, have exonerated hundreds of people from death row. Think of how you would feel if you were wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death. It has happened before. Justice is not be taken back. Is satiating the lust for revenge truly worth the risk of murdering an innocent life? Many death penalty advocates claim capital punishment serves as a deterrent for violent crimes. This is a generalization based on false logic. A murderer isnt afraid of death, and the death penalty isnt going to stop him. In fact, the FBIs annual Crime in the United States report in 2008 suggested the exact opposite. The report found states with the death penalty on the books had higher homicide rates than states without the death penalty. If it were me, Id choose to commit a crime where Id Most of the world no longer applies the death penalty. We stand with fewer countries by the year on this issue. Should we be content in the company of China, Iran and Cuba? To thosewho still subscribes to Hammurabis Code, Gandhi said, An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Chris Ceresa is a chemistry sophomore. His column appears on Thursdays.Flawless Victory Newspapers have had a centuries-long love affair with the First Amendment. Exercising our freedom of speech, after all, is our bread and butter. Whenever our favorite section of the Bill of Rights gets a shout-out in the news, wed be stupid not to throw our two cents in. Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 7-2 vote, ruled that states cannot ban the sale or rental of violent video games to children, deeming such a ban as a violation of the First Amendment. In his majority opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote that just like books and movies, video games fall into a category of entertainment that deserves free-speech protection. We feel this is a good message to send to people who are up in arms about these kinds of games. Parents should know what kinds of video games their kids play. If they feel the violence inapprothey should talk to their kids about just that. Now, we arent against the protection of children from stand that these games could feed into a culture of violence that is perpetuated by similar movies, and even by the very real wars and violence that are but a click away on the Internet. But is it the governments responsibility to make sure little Johnny doesnt see Sub-Zero rip Scorpions spine out? Shouldnt that fall to the parents? Besides, if a government ban did exist, little Johnny would only want to get his hands on the latest Call of Duty even more. Instead of creating a culture of restrictions, lets make it open and have a conversation about it. Chris Ceresaletters@alligator.org

THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Its 6 p.m., and Im on my way to the gym on a typical weeknight (I had tanned and done laundry earlier). I know there is nothing too peculiar about this, but there is one minor detail I should mention: My car had been on its reserve gasoline for a bit. By a bit, I mean two days. Forgive me, but I hadnt time to stop for gas. Such is the life of a college student. And I swear to you the fuel gauge wasnt that low. So picture me at a red light at the intersection of 34th Street and Archer Road during rush hour. As the light turned green, during the most inopportune time, at the busiest intersection in Gainesville, my car ran out of There are certain intricacies associated with such a situation that are unapparent to those who havent experienced it themselves: the nauseating unresponsiveness of your gas pedal; the suicide-inducing horns of angry commuters that drown out your stereo system; the sinking realization that you are that guy stopping the Fortunately for yours truly, one thing salvaged this pathetic situation: My friend was in the car. To the amusement of the unaffected drivers watching at the adjacent red lights, my friend hopped out of the car and began pushing while I did the only logical thing I could do: I opened my car door, stuck my left foot out and began pushing my car like a skateboard as I tried to steer through the increasingly hostile surrounding trafAlthough the drivers were mostly unpleasant, there are some nice people in Gainesville. Two upstanding citizens stopped their cars and offered help. One kind soul seemed particularly worried. Has your transmission blown? Has your car overheated? Do you need a ride somewhere? Nope, I answered, I just ran out of gas. That day was particularly unfor tunate. I need furniture, as my guests currently have two options: stand or sit on after driving to a couple of furniture stores did I learn that fur niture stores close early. The gyms weight room the same gym I went through my neardeath experience to get to was also closed. The other gym I went to instead was inhabited by a stocky Asian man who dropped his weights so hard that I believed the building was due to collapse at any moment. My fellow gym-goers must have thought the same because the gym rapidly emptied, and judging by the course of my day, my friend and I soon followed. Now that Ive publicized it for the world to ridicule (or at least for the three of you lovely folks who choose to read my pitiful ramblings), I can glean some lifelong lessons hidden throughout my day. One: Dont procrastinate. Two: Dont procrastinate. Three: Dont cry over spilled milk and really, most things are not milk but learn from that spilled milk. Although one might argue that its incompatible with a science background, I cant help but feel that our days are teeming with instances of divine intervention that are bursting with meaning and hopelessly waiting to be discovered. Or perhaps they are not. Perhaps my day was nothing more than a facepalm-inducing story. But if it has the potential to better ing even if that means stretching and distorting interpretation so greatly that it would put an English professor to shame. Abdul Zalikha is an microbiology junior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.Life lessons from a bad day and empty gas tankColumn Abdul Zalikhaletters@alligator.org Unite Party uses system to ruleate meeting. Fresh out of high school, I thought I had found a good place to get involved. What I found instead was a disaster. I entered a room where I saw a huge majority repeatedly ignore logic and common sense. In the years since, Student Government has wasted thousands of dollars of our money, and at every opportunity, the majority party sided with the administration not with the average student. The problem with SG is not the massive difference between majority and minority size, and its not that the two parties cant work together. The problem is not an abstraction, its an actual physical thing The System. With a name like that, you probably think Ive gone off the conspiracy theory deep end. But I didnt invent that moniker; they did. The System is a method of control, using patronage, biased rules and pure threats to get a few resume lines and SG salaries at the expense of every other UF student. The patronage system run by the Unite Party is something that would make Rod Blagojevich jealous. Grouping student organizations into socalled blocks, the system uses both carrot and stick to ensure members are brought in line for the purpose of getting votes for Unite. Organizations are told to guarantee the cooperation of their members, because refusing to participate in the effort has social consequences, in addition to the denial of positions in SG. The Unite Party accomplishes this through the use of voter boards, which allow organizations to keep track of which members voted and reward/punish them accordingly. This is why there is a unique rule in SG allowing only the Unite-appointed Supervisor of Elections to hand out stickers saying the magic words: I Voted. All of this was revealed in depth on last years so-called Unite Tapes, which, of course, the Alligator lacked the spine to adequately report on. Some choice words from the recording of Unite leaders: ...you guys had that incentive of getting your girls a bottle, not too many [groups] do that, thats awesome. Or, I know you told your baby pledge class that they couldnt eat until they went and voted. Thats amazing, thats what you need to do. So I applaud you all for doing that. The Unite Party knows that just a few hundred people voting against them could wipe out their super-majority. Thats why every year they pay lip service to increasing voter turnout, but every year they vote against the legislation that would actually do it. Instead, theyve rammed through election laws designed with one thing in mind: limit the number of voters to the 18 per cent who do now, while making it increasingly They do this because they are afraid of losing their power, which is exactly why they comply with every request the administration has for them. After all, without a real minority party, the administration is the only group left that can stop them. Whether its the University Police incident last year, the new Reitz Union fee proposal, or most recently, a massive tuition increase not covered by Bright Futures, the Unite Party sided with the administration and not with students. The system isnt only spending students money; they are claiming to speak for students while working against us again and again. All in all, this System-Administration love fest has worked out great for the Unite Party. When emails were leaked in 2008 revealing that senate seats were given away by organizational a stern talking to by administrators. When more emails surfaced revealing that applicants to the supposedly nonpartisan Elections Commission were told to hide their Unite Party afworking on it. Finally, when a member of The System leaked an unedited tape of one of their own meetings, which described in-depth and in their own words the patronage and corruption that currently has a choke hold on student government at UF, administrators told me they had spoken with the people on the tapes and that there was nothing else to be done. One of the people on the tapes is now Student Body Treasurer. Changing their name every few years to prevent you from catching on they need to win it all because theyve already promised it all away. Let me be absolutely clear: I reject the Progress Partys idea that we can work with these people. Their policies are not the problem; their corruption is. And until there is an opposition give Student Government back to the students, these people will control millions of dollars of student money and will continue to speak on behalf of people they dont represent. But its easy to be apathetic. Its easy to not vote. And yes, its easy for you, Alligator, to refuse to report on these facts and claim youre afraid of lawsuits. It may be easy, but it isnt right.

If one were to anticipate a sweeping statement that applies to the 20-somethings of today, it would be safe to assume our generation has taken a cue from our hippie forefathers with able cool. Well-stocked secondhand stores prove Americans addiction thing. But embedded in this discarded materialism is a source of artistic inspiration, of reinvention, of newness. Zombie Vinyls, a fresh visual-art business based in Gainesville, creatively implements a take on the theory of reduce, re-use, recycle as a foundation for its handcrafted, re-purposed vinyl records. Zombie Vinyls is the brainchild of longtime friends and UF gradu ates Tony Feria and Matt Teper. The idea for their business model is relatively simple and seemingly obvious, yet naturally channels a concept of reformu lation that no longer necessitates a grain of salt: turn stacks of used, scratched, unwanted and outwardly obsolete vinyl records into an art medium. As the name suggests and as their website claims, Zombie Vinyls brings dead music back to life. The company trades in a studio for a stencil, adorns coats of spray paint and ditches the phonograph as a testament to what once fell silent, now given new breath of life. Understanding that an immediate association of music is inherent in the medium, Zombie Vinyls orchestrates imagery of various musical acts on the surfaces of their records. From Jimi Hendrix to Jay-Z, The Clash to Tiesto, each record stands as an homage to those who have aurally entertained, inspired and embodied the conventions of various points in history. Swirls of tangled hue gradations set the stage for the headand grooves that formerly sourced hissing transitions between songs. Taking a cue from street art, the subjects of each record are ciled to trick the mind into believing shadows articulate the faces of the voices we love. Unlike a standard painting base such LP as a picture plane allows the imagery to resonate beyond its face value. Tony Feria is the founding artistic mind behind Zombie Vinyls, which he began about a year ago. He claims inspirations for his work stem equally from his love of diverse musical tastes and lineation of John Lennon that resides on a wall in his apartment, retains sentimental value as it marks the start of the Zombie Vinyls endeavor. (After the John Lennon record) I just kept going with this type of artwork, and it naturally progressed into something more, Fe ria said. I began discovering different ways to incorporate various designs into the work and put more and more time into the creative development of the images. I could spend six hours on this? The work is always progressing. Initially, the decision to turn Zombie Vinyls into an LLC business enterprise was not Ferias intent. Yet much like the development of his artistic technique, the decision to take this collection into the market evolved organically. With the help of his supportive friend Matt Teper, the two decided to take Ferias portfolio to the next level. Max Reed / Alligator Staff Tony Feria, owner of Zombie Vinyls, poses with a stenciled vinyl in front of a mural painted in the tunnel under 13th Street. Feria began designing art on vinyl about a year ago, when he painted an image of John Lennon on a 12-inch record. He says his inspiration for starting the project came from his love of diverse mufellow UF graduate Matt Teper pushed Feria to take the project to a higher level. dead format brought back to lifesee VINYL, page 10The company spray paints famed artists on vinylI began discovering different ways to incorporate various designs into the work and put more and more time into the creative development of the images.

thursday, june 30, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 By DIANA LOPEZ avenue contributing writer As usual, there is a lull in awesome TV during the summer. But weve put together a list of summer shows that will hold you over until Thursday nights on NBC return! Wilfred This Australian-adapted comedy, much ex-lawyer named Ryan, played by Elijah Wood, who seems to be the only one who can see one thing others cannot: a man dressed in a large gray dog costume. To the world, this middle-aged, costumed man is seen as an average dog who receives general greetings of, Whos my response. However crude Wilfred seems to be, he teaches Ryan how to be a man again, and they embark on a hilariously unfortunate journey through lifes woes. Wilfred premiered June 23 and broad casts on Thursdays at 10 p.m. on FX. This show epitomizes British teenage drama with a twist. A freak lightning storm tences, giving them superpowers. As clich as it sounds, the TV series offers more to the imagination than you might think. Many have called it a blend of The highly appraised dramedy is now available for U.S. viewers on hulu.com.

The company, whose acronym stands for the European Organization for Nuclear Research and which was made famous through its literary uses its laboratory on the Franco-Swiss border to conduct research of fundamental physics and the mechanics of the physical universe. The ALPHA experiment, one of the companys more ambitious endeavors, may be the closest to actually achieving this goal. Earlier this month, researchers involved with the ALPHA experiment succeeded in trapping antimatter for more than 16 minutes using an antiproton decelerator. We can keep the antihydrogen atoms trapped son Jeffrey Hangst in a press release. This is long enough to begin to study them, even with the Hanks fans will recall, is a highly unstable energy that exists in direct opposition to matter (i.e., ev erything), and therefore is extremely destructive if brought into contact with matter. Ever see what happens when you get a horizontal line of connecting tiles in Tetris? The same principle applies here. antimatter, the researchers were able to begin vide clues as to why antimatter is so rare. It also may illuminate the truth behind the long-held CPT theory, which concerns the fundamental symmetry of the universe according to change, parity and time. According to the theory as stated in a press release, a particle moving forward through time in our universe should be indistinguishable from an antiparticle moving backwards through time in Any hint of CPT symmetry breaking would require a serious rethink of our understanding of So while CERN might not yet be able to cre by one of the most commercialized authors of recent memory, the company has still managed to contain the material just long enough to begin collecting the puzzle pieces for one more crack at the mysteries of the universe.

Ive been following Tonys work for the last year, always thought that it was great, but didnt think he had an interest in it as anything more than a hobby, Teper said. Tony consistently kept creating some really, really great work that made me think I could help him turn this into something more if he wanted to pursue it at a higher level. Teper, who handles most of the managerial aspects of Zombie Vinyls, invested his graduation gift money in Feria and his artwork with the ambition of expanding this project into a larger market. In a short period of time, Zombie Vinyls has already received substantial recognition. This summer Feria, Teper and will be participating as vendors in national summer music festivals such as Electric Forest in Rothbury, Mich., and the Identity Festival, which tours more than 20 North American cities. dedication to the company a step further, getting a full-color tattoo of the Zombie Vinyls logo stretched across his entire forearm after only But even as Zombie Vinyls gains momentum, both Feria and Teper stress the artistic integrity of the work itself does not falter. Each record continues to be handdesigned by at least one of the Zombie Vinyls creators, allowing divergence to naturally occur with every piece. Zombie Vinyls also retires each stencil after a short-run number of pressings, preventing the records from becoming exhaustive and ge neric. Even during a quick visit to the downtown studio, the air saturated with the stench of spray-paint fumes, one can immediately sense a tone of optimism. There really is a good vibe right now, Feria said. Everyone has a key role that they play, and they do it really well. Were all just really excited.

The legendbecame available on Blu-ray in extended directors cut. For many fans, the extended the theatrical release is a more watered-down product aimed at a wider audience. Each extended edition contains about 30 additional special features. The movies were originally re leased on DVD in 2006, but fans have been clamoring for a proper Blu-ray release. The theatrical ver sions saw a Blu-ray release back in April of 2010, much to the dismay of diehard fanatics. Before the theatrical versions on Blu-ray even hit shelves, 2,500 frustrated fans gave the release a onestar rating on Amazon.com. Fans felt the extended editions were a priority and should be released along with the theatrical versions. Many felt Warner Bros. was try ing to double-dip the market, getting consumers to not only buy one ver sion, but the extended editions at a later date as well. From a business perspective, why wouldnt Warner DVD, so it would only be logical to repeat the process. The studio was smart enough to notice the niche of fans who wanted the extended cuts on Bluray, however, and decided the project. In response, the Lord of the Rings nation decided to attack the theatrical release online. was disappointed in the way other fans handled this situation. Obviously we all wanted to get the Bluray extended cuts sooner rather than later, but in the digital age with all the piracy that goes on, you cant blame a company for trying to as it can, especially with a series like Lord of the Rings, which saw movie. But instead of voting with our wallets by not buying the theatrical versions, fans decided theyd rather whine like children and e-vandalize an Amazon product. But alas, what can you expect from a bunch of nerds on the Internet? Regardless, the excruciating wait is over, fellow LOTR nerds. Open the blinds, don your fanciest mithril vest, grab eight of your closest friends and make your journey to Best Buy to pick up your precious copy of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy on Blu-ray.Lord of the Rings comes to Blu-ray Andy MaroonColumnist There really is a good vibe right now.

Florida is now 0-4 all-time in the championship series, but the team is optimistic about its future with the entire weekend rotation and seven starters returning next year. UF BASEBALLBy JESSE SIMONTONAlligator Staff Writerjsimonton@alligator.org OMAHA, Neb. Josh Adams lips quivered as he spoke. With tears streaming down his face, Floridas second baseman was helpless at the podium, unable to process where it all went wrong. After rolling through the first three games at the College World Series, the Gators, the preseason and postseason favorite to win their first national championship in school history, were swept by South Carolina in the best-of-three finals, losing 5-2 in Game 2 on Tuesday night after an excruciating 2-1 loss in 11 innings Monday. While the reigning national champions successfully defended their title, Florida left Omaha with an even deeper hollow feeling than a season ago. Its nice to make steps. But to be honest with you, the idea is to win this thing, coach Kevin OSullivan said. Theres a lot of disappointed players in that locker room right now. We wanted to finish this thing off. After a two-and-out in 2010, the Gators said they knew what to expect, knew what heartbreak felt like. Now they really do. It hurts a lot more this year. Making it to the finals and making it that much closer and having it ripped away from you is heartbreaking, sophomore ace Season ends in disappointmentBy JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Writer The promising career of a Florida ing close when he was arrested Tuesday on a charge of sexual assault, stemming from an incident just hours after competing at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Dumisane Hlaselo, 22, of 7 SW 23rd St., told police he entered his roommates bedroom in the early morning hours of June 12 with the intention of having sex with the semi-conscious victim, according to a Gainesville Police Department report. Hlaselo originally denied having sexual contact with the woman when inter viewed on the day of the incident, but later confessed to having sex with her without her permission when questioned again by police on Tuesday, the report states. We are aware of the arrest of Dumisane Hlaselo, the UF athletic association said in a ly disturbing.

One thing leads to another, and three weeks later you and this chick are doing an amateur pas de deux. You and red-hot havent hooked up. You havent even talked outside of school until she drops a bombshell and invites you to prom. She makes you some phony invitation and teases you with a juicy kiss on your cor ner lip, promising an experience youll never for get. Stoked, you rush and tell all your friends. Amazingly, it turns out a bunch of your buddies also got prom invites from her clan of mean girls. On Prom Night, you all meet at an over-priced restaurant and secretly pass booze under the table.

THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Incident only hours after NCAA Outdoors TRACK, from page 18 Slive The Southeastern Conference is proposing a number of changes to NCAA football recruiting bylaws. CBSSports.com obtained a letter from SEC commissioner Mike Slive to NCAA Asso ciate Director of Academic and Membership affairs Leeland Zeller sent June 15. Here are some highlights of Slives proposed changes. Coaches are currently not permitted to text message recruits at all even though they are permitted to contact them through Facebook and other social media outlets. The SEC would like this rule abol ished and replaced with limitations on texting.SEC, SLIVE PROPOSE NEW RECRUITING RULES Staff members and coaches should be permitted to accept follower requests on Twitter and friend requests on Facebook without having College campuses should not be permitted to host 7-on-7 high Phone calls between coaches and recruits need to be deregulated. Any coach or team staff member should be permitted to receive phone calls from recruits, recruits parents or recruits coaches. An earlier date should be determined for when coaches and recruits an issue with schools also hosting summer camps. While there are currently four recruiting periods (Contact, Evaluation, Quiet and Dead), the SEC would like to change it to three (Offcampus, On-campus and Dead). The change would allow coaches to freely communicate with recruits who visit during the spring. It would likely boost the importance of spring football in recruiting and raise the number of early oral commitments. Coaches should be banned from involvement in local sports clubs.

Hudson Randall said. Florida played with an all-ornothing mentality for five months, but the Gators seemingly ran out of gas at the most inopportune time. For just the fourth time all season and first since May 5 and 6 at Arkansas the Gators lost back-to-back games. It was definitely an improvement, making it to the finals and all. We understood what it took to get this far, but in the end we didnt have quite enough, Randall said. We didnt play well enough as a team. Weve had a great year and a great season, but we fell short in the end. Although Florida had a dominant regular season and NCAA Tournament, winning a school-record 53 games wasnt enough. While UF had Southeastern Conference rival Vanderbilts number all season the Gators won five of six, including eliminating the Commodores in the CWS Florida labored against South Carolina, losing four of five. Leading 1-0 in the eighth inning of Mondays Game 1, Florida coughed up the late lead and squandered multiple precious scoring opportunities. The Gators were left wondering what if after the Gamecocks again worked their Houdini magic late, escaping a bases loaded jam and throwing out the winning run at the plate. All season, the Gators were a team that relied on pitching, defense and timely hitting. But in the CWS Finals, the clutch hitting and web gems were largely absent. In the brief series, UF went 2 for 16 with runners in scoring position with just three RBIs. Florida also committed seven errors during the tournament four in the CWS Finals. All you can really do is say what if. But it doesnt matter anymore, Adams said. Just got to get back at it. Got to get back at it next year. For seniors like Adams, there will be no new season. No chance at reprisal. But many Florida players could have that chance, as the Gators will return arguably the most talented team in the country. Im not really looking forward to next year yet, but we do have a good group of core guys coming back, Randall said. Well be all right, OSullivan said. Weve got the whole rotation coming back. [Austin] Maddox closing full time. [Nolan] Fontana, Zunino. Well be back. 20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2011 In two tries, the Gators are now 0-4 in the CWS Finals, also getting swept by Texas in 2005. Before Mondays devastating 2-1 loss in 11 innings, Florida was 46-0 when leading after seven innings. Gators committed seven errors during the CWS four huge ones against USC after booting just two during regional action. Florida was 2 for 16 with runners in scoring position with just a pair of RBIs. Josh Adams (.323) and Nolan Fontana (.289) combined to Before going 3 for 3 in the Tuesdays loss, Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Mike Zunino was just 3 for 16 and also committed a costly error that led to the deciding run in Game 1.After sweeping through the competition en route to the championship series, the Gators were a different team in the College World Series Finals. UF FOLDS IN FINALSMike Zunino Josh Adams Nolan Fontana Jesse Simonton and Rosa Taveras / Alligator StaffSeven starters, weekend rotation returning BASEBALL, from page 18but that doesnt stop you from trying harder. After dinner, everyone crams into a tacky, juicedup Excursion limo. More teasing, more drinking. The radios blasting some Ke$ha jam and even though you hate the song, you arent even fazed. You are winning. Slipping into euphoria, you hardly realize you have no idea where you are. The limo pulls into some unrecognizable lot and the girls say they have one last surprise for everyone. Youre amped. Overwhelmed and naive, you think youve closed the deal. Everyone gets out of the limo and the ladies tell you and your friends to get close for a picture. It starts to sink in. As the booze drifts you in and out of consciousness, you realize you were in over your head. Suddenly, out of no where, a group of eight stag, douche bag seniors start chucking eggs and dog s*** at you. Laughing and crying hysterically, the boys and your dream dates speed off into the limo and go to prom. Now, imagine going to school Monday, seeing the same a-holes who punked you and then having to take the SATs. Would you even top Tebows score? That was the Gators baseball team Monday night: stunned, heart-broken, embarrassed, bewildered, humiliated. Name a depressing adjective and the Gators probably felt it, looked it after blowing a one-run lead with four outs to go to in the crucial Game 1 of the College World Series Finals. With SportsCenter highlights on a loop, the Gators were forced to relive the Manic Monday like a reoccurring nightmare. They never had a chance. The NCAA shouldve handed South Carolina the trophy Tuesday night without ever playing the game. Floridas body language transformed into a sick mixture of Jay Cutler and DeMarcus Cousins, and, even when Zunino smacked a homer to cut the defthinking about the why from the day before. They blew it. Some will say they choked. But theyll be back. Their real Prom will come soon enough. JESSE, from page 18
