Phillips spent most of Wednesday in handcuffs, but for about 11 of those hours he was a free man.

UF students received text and email alerts Wednesday morning warning that Phillips was last seen at the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center on Southwest 34th Street.

The UF Board of Trustees approved issuing $50 million in bonds Wednesday for the expansion only. The renovation of the current union will draw from $20 million set aside from student fees and $5 million from internal university funds. Before issuing the bonds, Gov. Rick Scott must sign a bill that would grant an exception for the limit on the amount of student fees that can be used for building construction projects. Dave Kratzer, interim vice president for student affairs, said the project would get delayed if the bill met Scotts veto pen. As of late last week, the bill had not been presented to Scott. If funding is approved, UF is expected to start construction on the 100,000-square-foot expansion next spring. Administrators plan to seek bids in the fall. The project is currently planned to be a three-story expansion where the colonnade is now, which would take a year, and a 75,000-squarefoot renovation of the current union, which would take another year. Kratzer said he wants students to be involved in designing the space, which will include dance studios, lounges and a new ballroom. The structure is really all about students, he said. Kratzer said staggering the expansion and renovation would allow UF to keep part of the union open throughout the construction period. alligator.org.Board of Trustees moves forward with Reitz expansion TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterThe PNC Bank on Northwest 13th Street was closed Wednesday after an armed robbery. mask walked into the bank shortly gun and demanded money, said Gainesville Police spokeswoman Cpl.

THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5Alex M. Sanchez / AlligatorSustainable Sweets Soiree ON Cam AMPUsS EVAN GALINAlligator Contributing WriterBecoming a lawyer might not be as popular as it used to be. The number of Law School Admission Tests administered this year dropped more than 16 percent, and the UF Levin College of Law received 10.4 percent fewer applications than last year. This year, 129,925 LSATs were administered, as compared to 155,050 last year. The number has declined almost 25 percent since a record high of 171,514 tests were given two years ago. UF Laws decrease in applicants is just shy of the national average decrease of 14.4 percent, said Michelle Adorno, assistant dean of admissions. UF is in line with what is happening nationally, she wrote in an email. In a good legal market, she said, about two-thirds of UF Law students have job offers by the time they graduate. In the current mar ket, that number is closer to 50 per cent. Although the college has no data to precisely explain the reason for the decline, Adorno attributed the trend to potential applicants becoming more educated consumers. Articles about increasing competition in the legal market, recently featured in newspapers such as The New York Times, have concerned potential applicants in recent years, she said. Second-year UF Law student Ian Parry, 23, said he agrees the insecurity of the job market contributes to the decline. Now, with the bleak outlook as a lawyer post-graduation, he said, undergrad students do not have the same incentive to attend law school. The expense of law school is another deterrent, he said. Parry, who plans to graduate in May 2013, said he doesnt have a post-graduation job offer yet. He thinks he made the right choice going to law school directly after completing his bachelors degree at Furman University, he said, and believes the UF college of law has given him the necessary tools to succeed. Nevertheless, Parry said, the declining job market is not something I enjoy reading about.UF law school applications down; fewer LSATs administered BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterThe Gainesville Public Safety Committee decided Wednesday night to recommend the City Commission ban smoking in Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The commission will vote on the issue at a later meeting. A ban would reduce the amount of secondhand smoke, which is harmful up to 20 feet away, said Steven Pokorny, director of health promotion for the Alachua County Health Department. However, Commissioner Todd Chase said he thought the city should not put an ordinance into action if it is going to be too hard to enforce. The committee also disand alcohol sales downtown. Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, chair of the Public Safety Committee, said the committee is at a standstill in regards to whether the commission can ban the product in the city until the federal government decides its stance on the issue.

A wave of relaxation fell over Chokyans students Wednesday night as he softly described peaceful sceneries and feeling weightless. Chokyan, 32, is a Buddhist monk traveling around Florida teaching Buddhism and the art of meditation to his students. He arrived in Gainesville about two years ago to share his lifestyle. Growing up in a poor family outside Dallas, Texas, Chokyan said he was motivated to become a Buddhist monk after watching a movie about them in his ninth-grade geography class. I was really impressed with the fact that they didnt kill anything, he said. After graduating from college, Chokyan became a high school physics teacher and continued learning about Buddhism by taking classes at the Kadampa Meditation Center Texas in Arlington, Texas. For the next two years, Chokyan spent his time living at the center and working at Star bucks. In 2004, Chokyan was formally inducted as a Buddhist monk. He then went to teach classes at the Parbawatiya Kadampa Buddhist Center in Tampa. For the last eight years, Chokyan has taught classes in several Florida cities. Chokyans class in Tampa has about 30 students, while his Gainesville class, which has been running twice a month since September, has about six students. Chokyan said the students who attend his class range from prison inmates to working mothers. Anna Davila, a 60-year-old Gainesville resident, said the class is a way for her to relax and apply her Buddhist beliefs. You forget about you and try to help other people, she said.Traveling monk teaches meditation, Buddhism throughout Florida BENJAMIN S.

While we have been hearing news about Trayvon Martin, another shooting that was arguably just as troublesome has been virtually ignored by the media. On Feb. 1, in Calumet City, Ill., police shot and killed 15-yearold Stephon Watts in his home after the boys family called them due to a mental disability. Stephon suffered from Aspergers Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. shot him in fear of their own safety. Yet, according to Stephons family, his weapon was merely a butter knife. The family had called police to the home 10 times since 2010 to help when Stephon became aggressive. In those instances though, the family said they were able to subdue him with a stun gun. For anyone concerned about justice, the facts of this case are cause for alarm. While we might not know the full story, one has to wonder what factors in this case have not led to the same public outrage as the Trayvon Martin incident. Perhaps it is because Stephon was wielding something more akin to a weapon than a bag of Skittles. Still, if the blade in question is a mere butter knife, does this justify the shooting of an innocent, mentally disabled boy? Perhaps it is because the incident in Calumet City involved police performing their regular duties. But should police be given less scrutiny for wrongful killings than private citizens? Police are given a lot of power; in some instances, they are given the authority to take a life. But shouldnt this power come with more oversight and responsibility? But surely the police had more options to subdue Stephon without resorting to lethal force, right? We do not bring this up to say that the Trayvon Martin case should be dismissed, but shouldnt both of these cases be given equal attention? Of course, there has been outrage over this case. Members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, local politicians and the Rev. Jesse Jackson have commented and led protests over this issue. But the buzz from social media and national news outlets has not come close to the coverage and commentary surrounding the Trayvon Martin case. Two African-American teenage boys are dead due to troubling circumstances. Both of these kids deserve equal attention.Social media creates shallow self-imageFacebook is essentially about two fundamental things: jealousy and exhibition. Think about it, the only reason any of us posts anything on Facebook is because we want everyone else to see it. We upload a status about our recent internship because we want the recognition and likes. We post Spring Break photos with the caption be jealous because we want our friends to, well, be jealous. We tag our friends at Midtown with us because we want to prove were not alone on a Friday night. We exhibit our lifestyles and expect envious commentary. While Facebook is, indeed, a great way to connect with friends and loved ones, there is a problem when you develop your sense of self-worth from the number of likes a status receives. Theres a problem when you start taking pride in the fact that you got 40-plus likes on a mobile upload. Theres a problem when the ease with which you support a campaign is second only to the ignorance with which you click like. According to an NPR article, researchers at the University of Waterloo recently published a study in psychological science, which determined that people with low selfesteem posted far more negative updates than those with high self-esteem. Certainly, we all have those friends who broadcast their problems to the world or even those who post the cheerful highlights of their day. We all have Facebook friends Bible-quoter, the dejected pessimists, the politically active, the song quoters, the arrogant, the self-picture-takers, the ambitious ones, the inspirational quoters, the social movement supporters. Its this last category that particularly troubles me. Especially recently, the rise of social media as a medium of political activism is founded upon like most everything else on Facebook a basis of envy and exhibition. The exhibitionist environment of social media provides a forum by which people can express concern about a foreign genocide or even a local shooting with the mere click of the mouse. Does merely clicking share on the Kony 2012 video change anything? Does expressing outrage at Susan G. Komen for the Cures decision to defund Planned Parenthood change anything? Does uproar over the shooting of Trayvon Martin change anything? Or are these actions merely a way to polish our online alter egos? Indeed, the newest symbols of social currency are becoming hashtags, at signs, followers and a mini thumbs up. Users get recognized for their activist posts, and this center of the brain that tells them theyve done their part. They got all the accolades of acknowledgment and commentary without any of the work that went into actually doing anything. No longer is life about doing something, its about being someone. But here I am being all cynical again. I mean, Susan G. Komen for the Cure did change its policy. The Trayvon Martin shooting is now being investigated. Maybe Joseph Kony will be brought to justice because of this awareness campaign. Who knows? ating awareness and perfecting persona. I do know one thing, though. When I post this column to Facebook, all of my friends better like it. Garrett Bruno is a political science sophomore at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Garrett Brunoopinions@alligator.org

A bulletin board covered with photos of her friends hangs above her bed; signed concert T-shirts line the red wall; and her rabbit, Pickles, hops around in her cage. At 18, Elizabeth, a freshman at Santa Fe College, has accomplished more than most of her peers as a talented fashion and jewelry designer. Her designs will be on display in a runway show on April 12 at Villa East, 301 N. Main St., as part of Gainesville Fashion Week. This is Elizabeths second time showing off her creations on the runway. Last year, she celebrated of fashion week, making her just old enough to participate. This year, she turns 19 a week before her show. Although Gainesville Fashion exposure as a designer, she has been sewing since she was 7 and designing and selling jewelry since she was 5. When she was 10, she won a competition with Sew Young Sew Fun. In return, A-1 Sewing gave her an embroidery machine that now sits in the workspace in her room next to her sewing machine and royal blue mannequin. made was a T-shirt with a bunny on a quilted square on it, which she says was horrible. Elizabeth has come a long way from that bunny shirt, now designing dresses, skirts and tops for females ages 14 to 30. She describes her design style as kind of sexy but still sophisticated. Her 26-piece collection for this years show is full of teals, golds, bronzes, blacks, khakis and silvers in a mix of sheer and solid fabrics with lots of beadwork, all made by hand. It has an Egyptian feel to it, she said. There is a lot of different shapes, but the collections fairly cohesive with the colors and the textures. Elizabeth says she has to overcome a lot of challenges regarding her age and level of experience as a young designer. People dont take you seriously unless youre, like, over 30, she said. You just have to show that you can do it and prove yourself because the product is what people look at. Despite being young, Elizabeth works hard at her hobbies. Just last week, she was accepted to the Savannah College of Art and Design for jewelry making, which she her career thus far, and she plans to attend starting next year. I just do it for fun, she said. Its kind of a hobby that turned into selling stuff to people, and then it kind of just built up. Elizabeths fashion and jewelry designs are available for purchase on her website, thumperdesigns. com. In her collections, she incorporates her jewelry with her fashion, matching the tones in the fabrics with beautiful, handcrafted earrings and necklaces. I do a lot of stuff with gemstones and different metals, she said. Most of it is all beaded and woven together. Elizabeth says her talent stems from her artistic family, which includes musicians, goldsmiths, architects and art professors. She plans to keep participating in Gainesville Fashion Week as long as she is able to, and she hopes to end up in a creative profession. I want to have a big name for something, either jewelry or design, she said. I mean, Ive already come this far. Until then, she plans to be a regular college student in Gainesville, attending Taco Tuesday at Tijuana Flats, $2 burger Wednesday at Mothers Pub & Grill, playing poker, attending rock concerts and hanging out with friends.Gainesville Fashion Week: Focus on Francine ElizabethDana Burke / Alligator2012 marks Francine Elizabeths second showing at Gainesville Fashion Week. DANIELLE MICHELSAvenue WriterBeer lovers, leave your standard six pack in the fridge, step outside your comfort zone and try some new brews that are made right in your own neighborhood. Festival at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens will showcase craft beer made by Florida breweries and brewpubs as well as other local and regional varieties. According to Alex Pries, a committee member for the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival, craft beer is produced on a smaller scale than largely recognized mega-brands like Budweiser and Coors. Craft breweries tend to have a very diverse portfolio and assembly of different types of beers, Pries said. For example, youll have a brewery that will produce a pale ale but theyll also do a dark beer, like a stout. Pries said that with the increasing popularity of microbreweries in Florida, craft breweries and brewpubs are really starting to take off in Gainesville. They often have a lot more freedom to experiment and play with different styles and ingredients, but craft breweries are also very dependent on their local communities to thrive, Pries said. In addition to beer tasting, Pries said festival-goers will also have the opportunity to speak with a few of the professional head brewers from different Florida breweries after a presentation on brewing in Florida and a homebrewing demonstration. Some of the breweries featured at the festival will include Cigar City Brewing, Alligator Brewing Company, Blue Moon Brewing Company and Swamp Head Brewery, which is located in Gainesville, Pries said. Craig Birkmaier, the head brewer at Swamp Head Brewery, said this festival is going to be different than any other beer festival Gainesville has seen before because the focus of the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival is all about the craftsmanship and supporting local breweries and other businesses. I want people to be entertained and have an enjoyable time in a nice venue where theyre not going to be too crowded and theyre going to have an opportunity to listen to music and drink a lot of different beers with great food pairings, Birkmaier said. Some of the local restaurants that serve food samples to correspond with the variety of craft beers include Stubbies & Steins, Birkmaier said. Beer is becoming just as popular as wine, and people should learn all of the different possibilities of craft beer, whether it be with food pairings or seasonal occasions, Birkmaier said, so they can walk away with a new appreciation. Theres hundreds of styles of beers: Theres dark beers, light beers, fruit beers, and theyre all different and appropriate for different kinds of occasions, like pale ales for the summertime and heavier sit-down-andsip-type beers for the winter, Birkmaier said.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterThe mosh pit started just before midnight. A girl, no taller than 5-foot-2, lit a dirty, broken cigarette, gripped her beer bottle tight and disappeared into a sea of beards, tattoos and empty cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon. The air smelled of sweat and cheap beer. So did The Black Lips. On Saturday, the Atlanta punk band, and wild stage antics, lived up to its reputation during a sold-out set at The Back Yard in downtown Gainesville. The group tore through the catchy, two-minute nuggets on its latest album, Arabia Mountain, and pillaged its back-catalogue for noisy garage cuts. They swigged whiskey. They made out a little. The small outdoor venue, nestled between Boca Fiesta and Palomino Pool Hall, is owned by punk veteran Warren Oakes and was packed with spectators waiting to see what the unpredictable foursome would do. You never know what to expect, guitarist Cole Alexander said before the show. You might get pregnant, you might become a born-again Christian anything can happen. Described by Black Lips drummer Joe porates a punk-rock style with blues, doowop and `60s psychedelic rock sort of like if The Ramones and Buddy Holly had a lovechild, and that lovechild got kicked out of school and started smoking and drinking at a young age. Bass guitarist Ian St. P said the groups shows are largely dependent on the crowds energy. If they give off a party vibe, were going to party, he explained. The large group of moshers gathered, pushed, swayed, threw beer, stage-dove and crowd-surfed into the stiff arms of other moshers. At one point, a nimble crowd-surfer headed straight for a crash with a pillar, grabbed onto the pole and shimmied down it like a spider monkey. There were no injuries during the show none, at least, that couldnt be dulled by adrenaline and booze. There were, however, many lost shoes and front of the stage. This is not a show its a rumble, said Pitchfork writer William Bowers, who attended the show. The Lips are used to this. They have played past shows drunk and nude. They once got kicked out of India for homosexual behavior. Gainesville got a liplock between Anderson and St. P during Oh Katrina, a raucous shouter off their album Good Bad Not Evil. Other band members Bradley and Jared Swilley possessed a similar energy but refrained from any man-on-man action. On Arabia Mountain, the band worked with big-time producer Mark Ronson on all except two tracks, which were produced by fellow Atlanta resident, Deerhunters Lockett Pundt. The result is a cleaner sound and its rawer previous entries. It took the longest its ever taken, Alexander said of the album, which he said took a year to make. The band recorded previous albums in Atlanta, sometimes in a bedroom, over the course of a few weeks. Alexander said this time was different. They traveled to a Brooklyn studio to work with Ronson, who has produced albums for artists such as Amy Winehouse. Gainesville punk promotion company Garage Mahal Presents brought in The Black Lips. Owner Vishal Agarwala said he had met them while working for Grooveshark and attending music festivals. They are incredible songwriters and phenomenal showmen, he added. The Black Lips hit many other towns in Florida, including Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee and Jacksonville. The bands van was vandalized in Jacksonville when some members of the audience took offense to an off-hand comment. According to St. P, members of the band referred to Jacksonville as below them. St. P said they meant that Jacksonville was geographically south of Atlanta, but a few audience members thought the band implied that they were lower-class and took revenge via spray paint. Despite having worked with an A-list producer, an appearance on Conan O Brien and having songs on soundtracks such as Days of Summer and Dirty Sexy Money, The Black Lips still seem to be the rebellious, liquor-swigging, dude-kissingdude garage band that they have been since they formed in 1999. Yeah, we are still just as wild, St. P said. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012Photo courtesy of Michelle KlugThe Black Lips havent changed too much since 1999; theyre still the same rebellious, liquor-swilling, dude-kissing-dude band. Black Lips took over The Back Yard space on Saturday NATALIA SIEUKARANAvenue WriterHollywoods renditions of bestselling books The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Hunger Games set a trend of strong female characters With their recent roles in David Finchers The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gary Rosss The Hunger Games, Rooney Mara and Jennifer Lawrence, respectively, became the new Hollywood It girls with their strong and unforgiving yet honest por trayals of two young women who are trying to survive in a world that tries to control them gripping the audiences hearts in the process. The tattooed punk Lisbeth The Girl who Played with Fire Salander and working-class girl Katniss The Girl on Fire Ever characters who both garnered large fan bases since the trilogies were released. However, moviegoers new favorite female heroines in Hollywoods renditions of the beloved books do a lot more than kick butt. Finchers and Ross takes on the characters are a feminists dream: They have love interests and tender sides that never compromised their strength. Both directors drove the stories forward and revealed the dark aspects of society that are sometimes over looked, a trait that is surely rare in the male-dominated world of cinema. This years Academy Awards Best Actress in a Leading Role category celebrated strong female types, as the nominations, one of which was Maras role, the odds. Even Oscar snubs like Hanna featured female characters worth mentioning. In 2011, female characters dominated, and in 2012, Jennifer Lawrence continues the trend. And as the Twilight series wraps up at the end of the year, these two characters are a fresh step forward from Bella Swans step back. Bella, dubbed a feminists nightmare in 2009, annoyed the non-Twihards with her hyperdependency and total immersion into the mysterious Edward Cullen. The ultimate disappointment is that her character did not endure any character change, aside from turning into a vampire, courtesy of her crutch, Edward. In other words, she pales in comparison to the strong and independent Lisbeth and Katniss. Its great that the movies dont stop there both actresses, who are slated to reprise their roles, have two movies left in the respective series, so the fun isnt over. But behind the glitz and glam, Hollywood has brought these two series, there are several dark subjects from the books that the movies capture. The Hunger Games, while aimed toward a younger audience, does a great job introducing topics such as poverty, starvation, the effects of war and the killing of peers. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, on the other hand, is aimed toward an older audience. It has intense rape scenes and abuse that reveals to audiences the cor ruption in the government and authorities. While the themes appear different, both trilogies capture the essence of oppression and the effects it has on the innocent. Katniss and her family are let down by their world, as shes thrust into a sick game to entertain a well-advantaged society. Lisbeth is physically and mentally sexual pleasure. Despite their hopeless, dark situations, both heroines refuse to feel sorry for themselves, eventually rising against the odds and making fools out of the systems that mistakenly mess with them. Both characters develop in vastly different ways. To author Stieg Larsson, Lisbeth was an adult version of the unconventional Pippi Longstocking. Her damaged soul was inspired by a young woman, of the same name, whose rape he witnessed when he was 15 years old. Katniss is a mashup of Suzanne Collins childhood feeling of loss while her father was in the Vietnam War and the Greek myth Theseus. The two young women, so similar despite their nine years apart in age, have appealed and inspired women and men around the world. Its easy for one to wonder why their appeal has been so strong, and the answer is simple: Both women take control. This control grips the audias they root for these two young women to make it out alive. And long after the credits roll, both heroines leave you sighing in relief. For now. women Lawrence

Kelly could live in cutoffs and a tank top her whole life. Ever the fashion rule-breaker, she wore her prom dress to a sorority formal less than a year later. She doesnt care. Dressing up has never been her favorite thing. She was voted Most Likely to do the Opposite of Every Sorority Stereotype by her Phi Mu sorority sisters. They were right. After all, not every sorority girl wins a world championship before shes old enough to start college. Kelly, a UF freshman, won the gold medal in the 16to 18year-old category at the 2010 World Association of Kickboxing Organizations Junior Championship in Serbia when she was 17. Shell hold the title of world champion until September, when another girl will take that title in the junior division, which, at 18, Kelly is too old to compete in. Now that shes in college, though, Kelly wants to be known as Mia who kickboxes, as opposed to Kickboxer Mia, she said. One would never think that the redhead with a beaming smile and toenails polished a light pink could throw punches like she can. Kelly is a more-than-meets-the-eye type of girl, anyway.Kickboxing through college, Mia Kelly breaks the moldSEE MIA, Pa A GE 10

contest. Ironically, it was Haeger who prevented her team from being shutout for the second time this season. In the fourth, she launched a solo shot to put the Gators on the board. The Gators could not handle the Bulls sophomore pitcher Sara Nevins, who ranks among the top-10 in the country in victories (17) and strikeouts (166) while leading all players in ERA (0.57). this year with an eighth-inning home run off Nevins. She did a really good job keeping us off balance, Horton said. She was lefty, so its a little bit different of a look. She throws hard. ... We were playing a little tight [Wednesday], which is uncharacteristic of us. We came The Gators threatened to make a comeback in the bottom of the seventh with two on and two out. Representing the tying run at the plate was Haeger, who could have tied the game with her second home run of the day. Instead, she struck out swinging. I got a little anxious at the end, Haeger said. I was swinging for the fences and I shouldnt have. Thats the game. The game is made for you to fail. They came to win so they did.

I think hes a good spot there, Quinn said. He adds value for me for our defense because I know he can do it at end. My goal, when we get everybody here with a mix of guys, lets put guys in the best spot to help us win. Jacobs seems to factor heavily into the Gators plans for 2012, but he has also been the target of criticism for his inconsistency thus far in spring. There is an adjustment period that comes with the switch from junior college to the SEC, and Quinn said it was paramount Jacobs enroll early and be here for spring. Its a whole new system thats hard to learn in just a training camp, not just for a lineman and its not just necessarily the plays, he said. A lot of the big guys can learn the plays.

Phillips spent most of Wednesday in handcuffs, but for about 11 of those hours he was a free man.

Phillips, 20, was arrested on charges of domestic battery, police. UF students received text and email alerts Wednesday morning warning that Phillips was last seen at the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center on Southwest 34th Street. At about 7 p.m., an unknown person called 911 and said Phillips was near the New Physics Building, according to University Police Lt. Andy Wagner.

The UF Board of Trustees approved issuing $50 million in bonds Wednesday for the expansion only. The renovation of the current union will draw from $20 million set aside from student fees and $5 million from internal university funds. Before issuing the bonds, Gov. Rick Scott must sign a bill that would grant an exception for the limit on the amount of student fees that can be used for building construction projects. Dave Kratzer, interim vice president for student affairs, said the project would get delayed if the bill met Scotts veto pen. As of late last week, the bill had not been presented to Scott. If funding is approved, UF is expected to start construction on the 100,000-square-foot expansion next spring. Administrators plan to seek bids in the fall. The project is currently planned to be a three-story expansion where the colonnade is now, which would take a year, and a 75,000-squarefoot renovation of the current union, which would take another year. Kratzer said he wants students to be involved in designing the space, which will include dance studios, lounges and a new ballroom. The structure is really all about students, he said.

THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5Alex M. Sanchez / AlligatorSustainable Sweets Soiree ON C AMPUS EVAN GALINAlligator Contributing WriterBecoming a lawyer might not be as popular as it used to be. The number of Law School Admission Tests administered this year dropped more than 16 percent, and the UF Levin College of Law received 10.4 percent fewer applications than last year. This year, 129,925 LSATs were administered, as compared to 155,050 last year. The number has declined almost 25 percent since a record high of 171,514 tests were given two years ago. UF Laws decrease in applicants is just shy of the national average decrease of 14.4 percent, said Michelle Adorno, assistant dean of admissions. UF is in line with what is happening nationally, she wrote in an email. In a good legal market, she said, about two-thirds of UF Law students have job offers by the time they graduate. In the current mar ket, that number is closer to 50 per cent. Although the college has no data to precisely explain the reason for the decline, Adorno attributed the trend to potential applicants becoming more educated consumers. Articles about increasing competition in the legal market, recently featured in newspapers such as The New York Times, have concerned potential applicants in recent years, she said. Second-year UF Law student Ian Parry, 23, said he agrees the insecurity of the job market contributes to the decline. Now, with the bleak outlook as a lawyer post-graduation, he said, undergrad students do not have the same incentive to attend law school. The expense of law school is another deterrent, he said. Parry, who plans to graduate in May 2013, said he doesnt have a post-graduation job offer yet. He thinks he made the right choice going to law school directly after completing his bachelors degree at Furman University, he said, and believes the UF college of law has given him the necessary tools to succeed. Nevertheless, Parry said, the declining job market is not something I enjoy reading about.UF law school applications down; fewer LSATs administered BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterThe Gainesville Public Safety Committee decided Wednesday night to recommend the City Commission ban smoking in Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The commission will vote on the issue at a later meeting. A ban would reduce the amount of secondhand smoke, which is harmful up to 20 feet away, said Steven Pokorny, director of health promotion for the Alachua County Health Department. However, Commissioner Todd Chase said he thought the city should not put an ordinance into action if it is going to be too hard to enforce. The committee also disand alcohol sales downtown. Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, chair of the Public Safety Committee, said the committee is at a standstill in regards to whether the commission can ban the product in the city until the federal government decides its stance on the issue.

A wave of relaxation fell over Chokyans students Wednesday night as he softly described peaceful sceneries and feeling weightless. Chokyan, 32, is a Buddhist monk traveling around Florida teaching Buddhism and the art of meditation to his students. He arrived in Gainesville about two years ago to share his lifestyle. Growing up in a poor family outside Dallas, Texas, Chokyan said he was motivated to become a Buddhist monk after watching a movie about them in his ninth-grade geography class. I was really impressed with the fact that they didnt kill anything, he said. After graduating from college, Chokyan became a high school physics teacher and continued learning about Buddhism by taking classes at the Kadampa Meditation Center Texas in Arlington, Texas. For the next two years, Chokyan spent his time living at the center and working at Star bucks. In 2004, Chokyan was formally inducted as a Buddhist monk. He then went to teach classes at the Parbawatiya Kadampa Buddhist Center in Tampa. For the last eight years, Chokyan has taught classes in several Florida cities. Chokyans class in Tampa has about 30 students, while his Gainesville class, which has been running twice a month since September, has about six students. Chokyan said the students who attend his class range from prison inmates to working mothers. Anna Davila, a 60-year-old Gainesville resident, said the class is a way for her to relax and apply her Buddhist beliefs.

While we have been hearing news about Trayvon Martin, another shooting that was arguably just as troublesome has been virtually ignored by the media. On Feb. 1, in Calumet City, Ill., police shot and killed 15-yearold Stephon Watts in his home after the boys family called them due to a mental disability. Stephon suffered from Aspergers Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. shot him in fear of their own safety. Yet, according to Stephons family, his weapon was merely a butter knife. The family had called police to the home 10 times since 2010 to help when Stephon became aggressive. In those instances though, the family said they were able to subdue him with a stun gun. For anyone concerned about justice, the facts of this case are cause for alarm. While we might not know the full story, one has to wonder what factors in this case have not led to the same public outrage as the Trayvon Martin incident. Perhaps it is because Stephon was wielding something more akin to a weapon than a bag of Skittles. Still, if the blade in question is a mere butter knife, does this justify the shooting of an innocent, mentally disabled boy? Perhaps it is because the incident in Calumet City involved police performing their regular duties. But should police be given less scrutiny for wrongful killings than private citizens? Police are given a lot of power; in some instances, they are given the authority to take a life. But shouldnt this power come with more oversight and responsibility? But surely the police had more options to subdue Stephon without resorting to lethal force, right? We do not bring this up to say that the Trayvon Martin case should be dismissed, but shouldnt both of these cases be given equal attention? Of course, there has been outrage over this case. Members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, local politicians and the Rev. Jesse Jackson have commented and led protests over this issue. But the buzz from social media and national news outlets has not come close to the coverage and commentary surrounding the Trayvon Martin case. Two African-American teenage boys are dead due to troubling circumstances. Both of these kids deserve equal attention.Social media creates shallow self-imageFacebook is essentially about two fundamental things: jealousy and exhibition. Think about it, the only reason any of us posts anything on Facebook is because we want everyone else to see it. We upload a status about our recent internship because we want the recognition and likes. We post Spring Break photos with the caption be jealous because we want our friends to, well, be jealous. We tag our friends at Midtown with us because we want to prove were not alone on a Friday night. We exhibit our lifestyles and expect envious commen tary. While Facebook is, indeed, a great way to connect with friends and loved ones, there is a problem when you develop your sense of self-worth from the number of likes a status receives. Theres a problem when you start taking pride in the fact that you got 40-plus likes on a mobile upload. Theres a problem when the ease with which you support a campaign is second only to the ignorance with which you click like. According to an NPR article, researchers at the Univer sity of Waterloo recently published a study in psychological science, which determined that people with low selfesteem posted far more negative updates than those with high self-esteem. Certainly, we all have those friends who broadcast their problems to the world or even those who post the cheer ful highlights of their day. We all have Facebook friends Bible-quoter, the dejected pessimists, the politically active, the song quoters, the arrogant, the self-picture-takers, the ambitious ones, the inspirational quoters, the social movement supporters. Its this last category that particularly troubles me. Especially recently, the rise of social media as a medium of political activism is founded upon like most everything else on Facebook a basis of envy and exhibition. The exhibitionist environment of social media provides a forum by which people can express concern about a foreign genocide or even a local shooting with the mere click of the mouse. Does merely clicking share on the Kony 2012 video change anything? Does expressing outrage at Susan G. Komen for the Cures decision to defund Planned Parenthood change anything? Does uproar over the shooting of Trayvon Mar tin change anything? Or are these actions merely a way to polish our online alter egos? Indeed, the newest symbols of social currency are becoming hashtags, at signs, followers and a mini thumbs up. Users get recognized for their activist posts, and this center of the brain that tells them theyve done their part. They got all the accolades of acknowledgment and commentary without any of the work that went into actually doing anything. No longer is life about doing something, its about being someone. But here I am being all cynical again. I mean, Susan G. Komen for the Cure did change its policy. The Trayvon Martin shooting is now being investigated. Maybe Joseph Kony will be brought to justice because of this awareness campaign. Who knows? ating awareness and perfecting persona. I do know one thing, though. When I post this column to Facebook, all of my friends better like it. Garrett Bruno is a political science sophomore at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Garrett Brunoopinions@alligator.org

A bulletin board covered with photos of her friends hangs above her bed; signed concert T-shirts line the red wall; and her rabbit, Pickles, hops around in her cage. At 18, Elizabeth, a freshman at Santa Fe College, has accomplished more than most of her peers as a talented fashion and jewelry designer. Her designs will be on display in a runway show on April 12 at Villa East, 301 N. Main St., as part of Gainesville Fashion Week. This is Elizabeths second time showing off her creations on the runway. Last year, she celebrated of fashion week, making her just old enough to participate. This year, she turns 19 a week before her show. Although Gainesville Fashion exposure as a designer, she has been sewing since she was 7 and designing and selling jewelry since she was 5. When she was 10, she won a competition with Sew Young Sew Fun. In return, A-1 Sewing gave her an embroidery machine that now sits in the workspace in her room next to her sewing machine and royal blue mannequin. made was a T-shirt with a bunny on a quilted square on it, which she says was horrible. Elizabeth has come a long way from that bunny shirt, now designing dresses, skirts and tops for females ages 14 to 30. She describes her design style as kind of sexy but still sophisticated. Her 26-piece collection for this years show is full of teals, golds, bronzes, blacks, khakis and silvers in a mix of sheer and solid fabrics with lots of beadwork, all made by hand. It has an Egyptian feel to it, she said. There is a lot of different shapes, but the collections fairly cohesive with the colors and the textures. Elizabeth says she has to over come a lot of challenges regarding her age and level of experience as a young designer. People dont take you seriously unless youre, like, over 30, she said. You just have to show that you can do it and prove yourself because the product is what people look at. Despite being young, Elizabeth works hard at her hobbies. Just last week, she was accepted to the Savannah College of Art and Design for jewelry making, which she her career thus far, and she plans to attend starting next year. I just do it for fun, she said. Its kind of a hobby that turned into selling stuff to people, and then it kind of just built up. Elizabeths fashion and jewelry designs are available for purchase on her website, thumperdesigns. com. In her collections, she incorporates her jewelry with her fashion, matching the tones in the fabrics with beautiful, handcrafted ear rings and necklaces. I do a lot of stuff with gemstones and different metals, she said. Most of it is all beaded and woven together. Elizabeth says her talent stems from her artistic family, which includes musicians, goldsmiths, architects and art professors. She plans to keep participating in Gainesville Fashion Week as long as she is able to, and she hopes to end up in a creative profession. I want to have a big name for something, either jewelry or design, she said. I mean, Ive already come this far. Until then, she plans to be a regular college student in Gainesville, attending Taco Tuesday at Tijuana Flats, $2 burger Wednesday at Mothers Pub & Grill, playing poker, attending rock concerts and hanging out with friends.Gainesville Fashion Week: Focus on Francine ElizabethDana Burke / Alligator2012 marks Francine Elizabeths second showing at Gainesville Fashion Week. DANIELLE MICHELSAvenue WriterBeer lovers, leave your standard six pack in the fridge, step outside your comfort zone and try some new brews that are made right in your own neighborhood. Festival at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens will showcase craft beer made by Florida breweries and brewpubs as well as other local and regional varieties. According to Alex Pries, a committee member for the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival, craft beer is produced on a smaller scale than largely recognized mega-brands like Budweiser and Coors. Craft breweries tend to have a very diverse portfolio and assembly of different types of beers, Pries said. For example, youll have a brewery that will produce a pale ale but theyll also do a dark beer, like a stout. Pries said that with the increasing popularity of microbreweries in Florida, craft breweries and brewpubs are really starting to take off in Gainesville. They often have a lot more freedom to experiment and play with different styles and ingredients, but craft breweries are also very dependent on their local communities to thrive, Pries said. In addition to beer tasting, Pries said festival-goers will also have the opportunity to speak with a few of the professional head brewers from different Florida breweries after a presentation on brewing in Florida and a homebrewing demonstration. Some of the breweries featured at the festival will include Cigar City Brewing, Alligator Brewing Company, Blue Moon Brewing Company and Swamp Head Brewery, which is located in Gainesville, Pries said. Craig Birkmaier, the head brewer at Swamp Head Brewery, said this festival is going to be different than any other beer festival Gainesville has seen before because the focus of the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival is all about the craftsmanship and supporting local breweries and other businesses. I want people to be entertained and have an enjoyable time in a nice venue where theyre not going to be too crowded and theyre going to have an opportunity to listen to music and drink a lot of different beers with great food pairings, Birkmaier said. Some of the local restaurants that serve food samples to correspond with the variety of craft beers include Stubbies & Steins, Birkmaier said. Beer is becoming just as popular as wine, and people should learn all of the different possibilities of craft beer, whether it be with food pairings or seasonal occasions, Birkmaier said, so they can walk away with a new appreciation. Theres hundreds of styles of beers: Theres dark beers, light beers, fruit beers, and theyre all different and appropriate for different kinds of occasions, like pale ales for the summertime and heavier sit-down-andsip-type beers for the winter, Birkmaier said. Keeping with the local focus, all the proceeds from the festival, which is being or ganized by Gainesville homebrew club The Conservation Trust and St. Johns Riverkeeper, Birkmaier said. To buy tickets, which are $35 for general list of participating breweries, brewpubs and restaurants at the festival, visit www. hogtownbeerfest.com. As people learn all the things that are possible with beer, they truly begin to enjoy it, Birkmaier said.Hop on over to the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival this April festival They often have a lot more freedom to experiment and play with different styles and ingredients.Alex Priescommittee member for the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterThe mosh pit started just before midnight. A girl, no taller than 5-foot-2, lit a dirty, broken cigarette, gripped her beer bottle tight and disappeared into a sea of beards, tattoos and empty cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon. The air smelled of sweat and cheap beer. So did The Black Lips. On Saturday, the Atlanta punk band, and wild stage antics, lived up to its reputation during a sold-out set at The Back Yard in downtown Gainesville. The group tore through the catchy, two-minute nuggets on its latest album, Arabia Mountain, and pillaged its back-catalogue for noisy garage cuts. They swigged whiskey. They made out a little. The small outdoor venue, nestled between Boca Fiesta and Palomino Pool Hall, is owned by punk veteran Warren Oakes and was packed with spectators waiting to see what the unpredictable foursome would do. You never know what to expect, guitarist Cole Alexander said before the show. You might get pregnant, you might become a born-again Christian anything can happen. Described by Black Lips drummer Joe porates a punk-rock style with blues, doowop and `60s psychedelic rock sort of like if The Ramones and Buddy Holly had a lovechild, and that lovechild got kicked out of school and started smoking and drinking at a young age. Bass guitarist Ian St. P said the groups shows are largely dependent on the crowds energy. If they give off a party vibe, were going to party, he explained. The large group of moshers gathered, pushed, swayed, threw beer, stage-dove and crowd-surfed into the stiff arms of other moshers. At one point, a nimble crowd-surfer headed straight for a crash with a pillar, grabbed onto the pole and shimmied down it like a spider monkey. There were no injuries during the show none, at least, that couldnt be dulled by adrenaline and booze. There were, however, many lost shoes and front of the stage. This is not a show its a rumble, said Pitchfork writer William Bowers, who attended the show. The Lips are used to this. They have played past shows drunk and nude. They once got kicked out of India for homosexual behavior. Gainesville got a liplock between Ander son and St. P during Oh Katrina, a raucous shouter off their album Good Bad Not Evil. Other band members Bradley and Jared Swilley possessed a similar energy but refrained from any man-on-man action. On Arabia Mountain, the band worked with big-time producer Mark Ronson on all except two tracks, which were produced by fellow Atlanta resident, Deerhunters Lockett Pundt. The result is a cleaner sound and its rawer previous entries. It took the longest its ever taken, Alexander said of the album, which he said took a year to make. The band recorded previous albums in Atlanta, sometimes in a bedroom, over the course of a few weeks. Alexander said this time was different. They traveled to a Brooklyn studio to work with Ronson, who has produced albums for artists such as Amy Winehouse. Gainesville punk promotion company Garage Mahal Presents brought in The Black Lips. Owner Vishal Agarwala said he had met them while working for Grooveshark and attending music festivals. They are incredible songwriters and phenomenal showmen, he added. The Black Lips hit many other towns in Florida, including Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee and Jacksonville. The bands van was vandalized in Jacksonville when some members of the audience took offense to an off-hand comment. According to St. P, members of the band referred to Jacksonville as below them. St. P said they meant that Jacksonville was geographically south of Atlanta, but a few audience members thought the band implied that they were lower-class and took revenge via spray paint. Despite having worked with an A-list producer, an appearance on Conan O Brien and having songs on soundtracks such as Days of Summer and Dirty Sexy Money, The Black Lips still seem to be the rebellious, liquor-swigging, dude-kissingdude garage band that they have been since they formed in 1999. Yeah, we are still just as wild, St. P said. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012Photo courtesy of Michelle KlugThe Black Lips havent changed too much since 1999; theyre still the same rebellious, liquor-swilling, dude-kissing-dude band.

Even Oscar snubs like Hanna featured female characters worth mentioning. In 2011, female characters dominated, and in 2012, Jennifer Lawrence continues the trend. And as the Twilight series wraps up at the end of the year, these two characters are a fresh step forward from Bella Swans step back. Bella, dubbed a feminists nightmare in 2009, annoyed the non-Twihards with her hyperdependency and total immersion into the mysterious Edward Cullen. The ultimate disappointment is that her character did not endure any character change, aside from turning into a vampire, courtesy of her crutch, Edward. In other words, she pales in comparison to the strong and independent Lisbeth and Katniss. Its great that the movies dont stop there both actresses, who are slated to reprise their roles, have two movies left in the respective series, so the fun isnt over. But behind the glitz and glam, Hollywood has brought these two series, there are several dark subjects from the books that the movies capture. The Hunger Games, while aimed toward a younger audience, does a great job introducing topics such as poverty, starvation, the effects of war and the killing of peers. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, on the other hand, is aimed toward an older audience. It has intense rape scenes and abuse that reveals to audiences the cor ruption in the government and authorities. While the themes appear different, both trilogies capture the essence of oppression and the effects it has on the innocent. Katniss and her family are let down by their world, as shes thrust into a sick game to entertain a well-advantaged society. Lisbeth is physically and mentally sexual pleasure. Despite their hopeless, dark situations, both heroines refuse to feel sorry for themselves, eventually rising against the odds and making fools out of the systems that mistakenly mess with them. Both characters develop in vastly different ways. To author Stieg Larsson, Lisbeth was an adult version of the unconventional Pippi Longstocking. Her damaged soul was inspired by a young woman, of the same name, whose rape he witnessed when he was 15 years old. Katniss is a mashup of Suzanne Collins childhood feeling of loss while her father was in the Vietnam War and the Greek myth Theseus. The two young women, so similar despite their nine years apart in age, have appealed and inspired women and men around the world. Its easy for one to wonder why their appeal has been so strong, and the answer is simple: Both women take control. This control grips the audias they root for these two young women to make it out alive. And long after the credits roll, both heroines leave you sighing in relief. For now. women Lawrence

THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 MARIA GALINDOAvenue WriterMia Kelly is not one to keep with stereotypes. Yeah, shes a girl, but shed rather get dirty than go to a spa. Kelly could live in cutoffs and a tank top her whole life. Ever the fashion rule-breaker, she wore her prom dress to a sorority formal less than a year later. She doesnt care. Dressing up has never been her favorite thing. She was voted Most Likely to do the Opposite of Every Sorority Stereotype by her Phi Mu sorority sisters. They were right. After all, not every sorority girl wins a world championship before shes old enough to start college. Kelly, a UF freshman, won the gold medal in the 16to 18year-old category at the 2010 World Association of Kickboxing Organizations Junior Championship in Serbia when she was 17. Shell hold the title of world champion until September, when another girl will take that title in the junior division, which, at 18, Kelly is too old to compete in. Now that shes in college, though, Kelly wants to be known as Mia who kickboxes, as opposed to Kickboxer Mia, she said. One would never think that the redhead with a beaming smile and toenails polished a light pink could throw punches like she can. Kelly is a more-than-meets-the-eye type of girl, anyway.Kickboxing through college, Mia Kelly breaks the moldSEE MIA, P A GE 10

contest. Ironically, it was Haeger who prevented her team from being shutout for the second time this season. In the fourth, she launched a solo shot to put the Gators on the board. The Gators could not handle the Bulls sophomore pitcher Sara Nevins, who ranks among the top-10 in the country in victories (17) and strikeouts (166) while leading all players in ERA (0.57). this year with an eighth-inning home run off Nevins. She did a really good job keeping us off balance, Horton said. She was lefty, so its a little bit different of a look. She throws hard. ... We were playing a little tight [Wednesday], which is uncharacteristic of us. We came The Gators threatened to make a comeback in the bottom of the seventh with two on and two out. Representing the tying run at the plate was Haeger, who could have tied the game with her second home run of the day. Instead, she struck out swinging. I got a little anxious at the end, Haeger said.

My goal, when we get everybody here with a mix of guys, lets put guys in the best spot to help us win. Jacobs seems to factor heavily into the Gators plans for 2012, but he has also been the target of criticism for his inconsistency thus far in spring. There is an adjustment period that comes with the switch from junior college to the SEC, and Quinn said it was paramount Jacobs enroll early and be here for spring. Its a whole new system thats hard to learn in just a training camp, not just for a lineman and its not just necessarily the plays, he said. A lot of the big guys can learn the plays. Its not rocket science exactly what were doing on the defensive line. But there is a lot of technical play.
