to be done right, Villamil said. He noted that raising the CITF fee is in keeping with the boards promise to not create new fees to fund renovations to the Reitz Union. Graduate assistants and graduate students with associate appointments will not have to pay the fee. Money from the CITF fee is collected from state universities and released by the Board of Governors every three of the universities. Kratzer said he was surprised the trust fund fell so short this cycle. All along when I proposed this, I didnt think wed have to do this, he said. UF needs the full $20 million to be able to complete the renovations all at once. Although projects on campus are usually completed in multiple phases, the building is used year-round for a variety of purposes, unlike most classroom buildings. Otherwise, he said, Youre actually paying for that twice. Contact Erin Jester at ejester@alligator.org.

CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterUF administrators say budget cuts are inevitable, including the $13.4 million that might come from their own budget. The budget cuts proposed for the administration would reduce state funding put toward areas such as Student Health Care Center services, the UF International Center, research and university libraries. Some of these cuts would result in reduced positions and services. The cuts, which were proposed Friday, came after the Florida Legislature required UF to reduce its budget for the upmillion. and UF President Bernie Machen posal to members of UFs Board of Trustees during its meeting Members of Faculty Senate will discuss the overall budget Tuesday. Scott Nygren, chairman of Faculty Senate, encourages anyone with suggestions or questions about the proposed budgets to bring them forward in time for the meeting next week. The Faculty Senates discussion website allows users to comment on issues such as the budget. Nygren said the administrative budget seemed appropriate, and it lined up with other cuts UF will have to make. Current proposals protect tenure-track and tenured faculty from layoffs, but other faculty and staff positions might be eliminated. Thats not a good idea, but its still something that may be necessary, Nygren said. Provost Joe Glover said meeting the legislatures requirement is not an option, and all the proposed budgets are acceptable. People may come up with even better ideas, he said, but the ones that have been proposed are reasonable. Contact Clare Lennon at clennon@alligator.org.

Dave Kratzer, who has served as the interim vice president for student affairs since April 1, day. I am deeply honored to be given this opportunity, Kratzer said. I think its important and our staff will remember every day that student affairs begins with students. Kratzer took over the interim position after Patricia Telles-Irvin left UF last year to become the vice president for student affairs at Northwestern University. the Reitz Union, according to his website. He served as the associate vice president for student affairs from 2005 to 2011. Kratzer has advocated for campus projects that improve student welfare, including the expansion and renovation of the Reitz Union and the implementation of the U Matter, We Care campaign, which seeks to help students and faculty members in distress. Student Body President Tj Villamil said Student Government is extremely pleased with the selection and believes Kratzer will continue to work well with the Student Body. Its a great success for the students, Villamil said. Contact Erin Jester at ejester@alligator.org.Trustees name Dave Kratzer new THE BILL COULD LIMIT CAMPAIGN ACTIVITY. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff Writer The Student Senate will vote on a bill today that could limit when students can campaign for Student Government. Proposed revisions would add campaign activity as intentional action supporting or opposing a candidate or party. Campaign activity would be allowed to start four weeks before the election and end when the polls close. However, the activity could not refer to a speThis would be a change from the UF Supreme Courts spring ruling that campaign-like activity could occur any time. The revisions would also terials such as encouraging students to vote on a certain issue. Campaigning would begin of elections and end when the polls close. But the revisions say a website with general information about the party and party members would not be campaigning. The revisions also propose adding Internet posts as campaign material. The Judiciary Committee approved the proposal to go before the Senate. Committee member Sen. Cory Yeffet was in favor of the revisions. What I see from this piece of code revision is pretty much fair on all grounds, he said. However, another member of the committee, Sen. Umair Asghar, said limiting campaign activity to a few weeks out of the year violates state law. I think there should be a lot more time put into this other than the one week, he said.

TUESDAY, MAY 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing Writer Nearly 40 percent of college students at four-year U.S. institutions could be deemed alcoholics next year, according to the label in the newest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The current edition of the manual labels alcohol issues as either alcohol abuse, claslem, or alcohol dependence, a chronic problem popularly recognized as alcoholism. But the proposed changes in the newest edition of the manual, which will be published in May 2013 following include one diagnosis: substance use disorder. Patients would be measured as mild, depending on the number of harmful criteria they meet based on their history of acthe quantity or frequency of their drinking. Assistant professor Daniel Logan of the UF Department of Psychiatry said diagnosing college students under the new system would short amount of time most ing. The lack of opportuniate the consequences of their drinking makes it harder to justify diagnosing them as being alcohol-dependent.

Thursdays question: Have you ever 22% YES 78% NOShut DownSG election codes limit free speechAt the end of the spring semester, we wrote a series of editorials addressing UF Student Government election codes and their negative implications for student free speech. First, we discussed the issue with code 762.0, which requires that candidates and parties attach Registered Political Adver campaign material, this code could be enforced against almost anything someone says in favor of or against a particular candidate or party. Next, we questioned code 761.1, which appeared to constrain any intentional action in support of, or in opposition to, a canfour-week period. Both of these codes provide ample opportunity for the party in power to limit student free speech, especially for those stuAt the end of last semester, the UF Supreme Court recommended that SG amend the rules to clarify the meaning of campaigning and determine when these activities could occur. We were hopeful that the Student Senate would revise the rules to remove these vague and draconian limitations on free speech. Instead, this evening the Student Senate will be voting on whether to add even stricter rules to candidates, political par ties and, perhaps, even the general student body. First, the proposed code revisions now clearly stipulate that election cycle, or four weeks before election day. Election-specific material, such as things that say vote for, cannot occur until paign material, which now extends the ability of the Elections Commission to give violations to online communications that do not have Reg. Pol. Ad. Because the codes surrounding this requirement are so vague, an election-related post by a student who is not running for ofan election code violation for the candidate or party that was mentioned by the student. These code revisions clearly violate student free speech and deserve serious scrutiny from the entire student body. While this might not seem like a big deal to some, if you do saying something in support of him or her at the wrong time or without adding Reg. Pol. Ad. could cost the election. The Senate should, without question, vote against these election code revisions. We strongly encourage you to contact your senator to tell him or her to vote against these revisions. We also encourage you to attend this meeting. It will be held at 7 p.m. tonight in Reitz Union 282.Welcome to the Web, a voyeurs paradiseIm not really liking the turn technology has taken lately. It has become creepy and invasive, but somehow society is OK with that. Some of the newer features of Facebook are social readers that show up on our news feeds. They inform us of what news article our friends are reading on particular websites. Id be embarrassed if my friends had to see how many articles I read about the Kardashian sisters unlike some of my friends, apparently so I dont use social readers very much. Neither does anyone else these days. At its peak, the Washington Post Social Reader reached about 18 million had about 9 million monthly active users. Oops? Social readers from the Guardian and Dailymotion arent doing so well, either; the Guardian had about 600,000 daily active users in the beginning of April and fewer than 100,000 daily active users in the beginning of May. People arent so excited about having every detail of their Internet lives broadcasted to all of their friends. But the point of social networking sites is to connect, or reconnect, via common interests, right? There just has to be a limit to what we share with certain people. Which brings me to Googles latest ad campaign. Google has released some pretty powerful commer cials in recent years; its It Gets Better ad for Google Chrome is more than a year old and was created with the Google Creative Labs newest theme, The web is what you make of it. Like any campaign, the creative videos were designed to sell us something or to sell us on the idea of something. Eventually those videos turned into the Search Stories series. One of these, titled Parisian Love, prelove story between some faceless dude and his French girlfriend; the story evolves and ends with the guy searching for directions on how to assemble a crib. First of all, cribs come with assembly directions. Second, the ad was made without any clear how soon into this relationship he was thinking about having kids. Whatever, I can put my jaded soul aside for Fine. But now Google has released something even worse. Let me introduce you to Mark Potter. Potter is certainly trying to make the most out of his web experience by attempting to win over his exgirlfriend with a Da Vinci Code-esque Google doc of shame. gone awry; its not exactly clear if the couple split or if so much work to win us over or do we need to reiterate the no means no lesson? Because so much of our lives is kept on the web cloud, Potter is able to pull up an awful lot of old memories of their relationship and put them on display. Its some sort of weird grand gesture; are shame docs the new mixtapes? Good luck, Mark Potter. how much of our lives is already virtually scrapbooked, which does a lot of the work for you.

TUESDAY, MAY 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 New York City used to be the city of hopes and dreams. Today, we see a different narrative emerging. Last week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg showed his true colors as being part of the 1 percent. Bloomberg, the 20th richest man in the world, is loudly denouncing the so-called living wage bill that has just passed New York Council. The bill would require publicly subsidized companies to $11.50 without them. While many employees would gladly welcome this bill, the New York mayor seems to see his beloved town turning a bright shade of Communist red. Bloomberg elaborated his let them eat cake stance on the living wage bill on a local radio show when he said, The last time we really had a big managed economy was the USSR, and that didnt work out so well. This hyperbolic quote is an example of how conservatives react when faced with most social services they automatically see red and cry Stalin. Fortunately, hes alone in his modern anti-communism crubers who voted against the bill). Bloombergs stance shows how disconnected he is from the people of New York. He would rather favor businesses than regular working-class people. For instance, the company FreshDirect (a grocery delivery service based out of New York) has reported receiving $129 million directly from taxpayers pockets, yet the company is currently paying its workers less than $9 an hour. Bloomberg willingly hands out taxpayer money to this company, which offers a service only the wealthy can afford, while refusing to support a bill that would improve the lives of many New York workers. In a city like New York, a $10 per hour wage is coveted by the working class. If you were to drive past Yankee Stadium on game days, you would see a line of cashiers forming outside the perimeter. Yankee Stadium hires more cashiers than necessary and has work that day. The unlucky ones have just wasted unpaid time standing in the heat. The hope of receiving a higher wage in a city with such a high cost of living was reason enough to wait. However, Bloombergs reaction to this bill is symptomatic of larger societal issues. For instance, Mark Zuckerberg, worth $19 billion, has been reportedly trying to avoid his taxes while the rest of us work hours upon hours just to make ends meet. While we crawl through this fun game called life, these billionaires play hide-and-seek with their money. Bloombergs attitude toward the living wage bill is a reminder that the ones who toil every day dont matter to the wealthy. Government policy, as seen with FreshDirect, concenthe citizens who pay the taxes to subsidize these companies are relinquished to the shadows. If the citizens raise their voices and state that these policies are unfair, billionaires like Bloomberg call them communists. I ask you to not take the title seriously. Fighting for ones rights and striving for a fair society is the honorable path to take. As Bloomberg brushes up on his McCarthyism, citizens and workers need to realize that its not wrong to strive for equality. Remember that people were born with a heartbeat, not the corporations. Michela Martinazzi is an art history junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.Bloombergs reaction to living wage bill shows disconnectColumn Michela Martinazziopinions@alligator.org On May 20, 1865, U.S. General Edward of the Emancipation Proclamation in the state of Florida. During the Civil War, more than 1,000 African-American Floridians joined nearly a quarter of a million African-Americans across the nation to serve in the Union Army and Navy. Many more worked as scouts, spies and laborers in a struggle to end the long nightmare of slavery. Henceforth, African-American Floridians observed May 20 as a sacred day of remembrance of the Peculiar Institutions many victims, and in hope that the nation would nevermore place property rights above human rights. African-Americans understood that slavery continued to exist in our hemisphere. In the decades after May 20, African-American churches and conventions organized to protest slavery in Latin America, particularly in Brazil and Cuba. One mass meeting, chaired by the great abolitionist the Rev. Henry Highland Garnet at Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church in Philadelphia, led to the formation of the American Foreign Anti-Slavery SociGarnet pledged his organizations support to the anti-colonial struggle being waged in Cuba and stated, If the veteran abolitionists of the United States had not mustered themselves out of service, I believe that there would not now have been a single slave in the island of Cuba. We sympathize with the patriots of Cuba, not simply because they are republicans, but because their triumph will be the destruction of slavery in that land. All of Europe now frowns upon Spain because of her attitude toward human bondage. We must take our place on the broad platform of human rights, and plead for the brotherhood of the entire human race. Tragically, the Rev. Garnets call for the recognition of universal human rights fell upon deaf ears in his own country. As oneparty rule swept the South, forced labor re-emerged. Convicts, primarily AfricanAmerican men, were traded as commodities to farmers and corporations to work in the coal mines of Birmingham, Ala., the cotton of Florida. Municipalities viewed the conviction of African-Americans as a source of revenue. J.C. Powell, a white prison captain, dubbed Florida The American gulag and PBSs recent documentary Slavery by Another Name reveals that millions of African-American men were held in chattel bondage long after the end of the Civil War. Courageous voices spoke against the insidious new slavery. Foremost among these was Floridas Stetson Kennedy. In 1952, Kennedy risked life and limb to gather testimony about slavery in the South, presenting this evidence before the United Nations Commission on Forced Labor in Geneva. Modern-day slavery continues to exist in Florida. Barry Estabrook notes in his recently published book Tomatoland that, In the men and women who have been held and of Florida, and that represents only the tip of the iceberg. Most instances of slavery go unreported. There is a solution to these egregious violations of human rights in our state. A Florida-based organization, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, recently earned the Anti-Slavery Award from Anti-Slavery International in London for its efforts to expose and to end slavery in Florida agriculture. Major corporations, including Taco Bell, McDonalds and Trader Joes, have joined the CIWs Campaign for Fair Food, which has joining consumers, growers and purchasers of Florida produce together to ensure that agricultural workers are treated fairly and paid regularly for their labor. Unfortunately, a major purchaser of Florida tomatoes, Publix Super Markets, continues to ignore the pleas of religious leaders and Florida consumers to join the growing claiming that it bears no responsibility for the conditions of the men and women who pick the crops that help generate enormous tomers who have been petitioning the company for more than two years. On this newest Emancipation Day, we should pledge to take up Garnets call to brotherhood of the entire human race regardless of occupation, racial background or nationality. It is up to us to honor the spirit of May 20 in Florida. Paul Oritz is an associate professor of hisGuest columnPaul OrtizSpeaking Out

He is the third person known to have gone over without a safety device and live. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterA Gainesville man is accused of beating, strangling and kidnapping his girlfriend before stealing her car Wednesday. Samuel Tobias Jemel Anderson, 22, is charged with grand theft, false imprisonment, prevention of communication with police and two counts of domestic battery. Police gave the following report: About 6 p.m. Tuesday, Anderson got angry with his girlfriend, Tiffany Jackson, because she talked with friends outside. He started to punch her in the head. kitchen. In the kitchen, Anderson told Jackson he would kill her if she told anyone about the beating. Then he grabbed her throat and began to squeeze. She fell down, unconscious. When she woke up, she said she wanted to leave, according to the report. Anderson forced her into a room and stood by the door to make sure she didnt. Jackson woke up Wednesday morning and used Andersons cellphone to call her mother for help. When Anderson woke up and heard her on his phone saying she was calling the police, he took the phone. Jackson ran into the bathroom and locked the door because she was afraid of another beating, according to the report. Anderson split the door frame as he kicked the door in. He grabbed her hair and started punching her right eye. After beating her until her eye swelled, Anderson put her in another room and guarded the door. When Anderson went to the bathroom, Jackson made her escape to neighbor Artina Williams apartment. Anderson banged on Williams door and demanded that she unlock it and that Jackson come outside. When Jackson didnt come out, Anderson went back to their apartment, took her car keys and drove away with her car. Anderson was arrested at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday. He is currently in jail and his bond is set at $85,000.

Ive been drinking coffee since high school, which is probably like 10 years, said Tomlinson, a 30-yearold elementary education junior at Santa Fe College. I guess Im going to live forever. The study, published online last week in the New England Journal of Medicine, examined about 400,000 people 50 to 71 years old. Its head researcher, Neal Freedman, said it is the largest study of coffee on long-term health. Due to the many components in coffee, Freedman said, the study shouldnt be taken at face value.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents might soon be able to buy food from their favorite mobile vendors by the light of day. The Gainesville City Commission preliminarily voted 5-0 last week to change a city law that would extend operating hours for vending and mobile food vendors in downtown Gainesville from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Food vendors in the Midtown area of Gainesville would also have their hours extended. According to the ordinancew, food vendors would be able to serve customers from 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. seven days a week. Additional Jeff Babik, who worked with the Public Safety Committee on the issue, wrote a proposal last fall that promoted extending hours as a way for the vendors to generate revenue. It is often easy for us to see food vendors at face value and not realize that a lot of the vendors are out there to make a living and bring in some much-needed income for their family and to support themselves, he wrote.City Commission initially approves extended food vendor hours Anderson Ive been drinking coffee since high school...Courtney TomlinsonSanta Fe junior

But even with the Gators earliest exit since 2006, Walton stuck by his decision and even had support from USFs Ken Erikson who endured a similar situation in 2008 when he had to suspend 13 players for breaking curfew right before the start of the regular season.

I know the team is hungry to get back in the mix. Thats all you can ask for when youre playing in a college golf tournament or any golf tour nament is to get yourself into the mix and get yourself in contention. The Gators have stayed in the mix for a majority of the season ing the last four tournaments.

JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Steven Paco Rodriguez and Austin Maddox have been nearly unhittable out of the Gators bullpen this season. The duo has combined for a 1.82 ERA, a .193 batting average against and 15 saves in 103.1 innings pitched. However, with a share of the Southeastern Conference regular season title on the line, Rodriguez and Maddox did not get the job done. The junior relievers surrendered a two-run lead in the seventh inning of Auburns 5-4 win against Florida on Saturday. The guys whove done it all year long, it was just one of those days where they didnt have their best day, coach Kevin OSullivan said. We were in a position to win a championship because of those guys. Rodriguez bookended his outing with two strikeouts, but what happened in between proved costly. Tigers third baseman Zach Alvord led off the seventh with a single on a full count. Shortstop Mitchell Self followed with a base hit and second baseman Tanner Cimo knocked an 0-2 pitch to left to load the bases. ing Alvord to score and cutting the Florida lead to one. Rodriguez fanned the next batOSullivan pulled him for Maddox. Designated hitter Justin Bryant worked the count full against Maddox before punching out a two-run single to give the Tigers a 5-4 lead. We had our best guys on the mound in our latter half of the game and it worked out the way we wanted it to, OSullivan said. Obviously, its disappointing, but the games over and theres not much we can do about it now except learn from it and hopefully make some better two-strike pitches down the road. Despite the loss Saturday, Florida still won the series due to its improved hitting. The Gators scored 20 runs on 34 hits against the Tigers. Preston Tucker led the offensive reurday when he was thrown out at home. We swung the bat really good that was probably the most important thing coming into the weekend, OSullivan said. The defeat dropped Florida to a No. 3 seed in the SEC Tournament, which begins today with a matchup against Auburn at 5:30 p.m. in Hoover, Ala. Under new rules set to accommodate Texas A&M and Missouri next season, UF missed out on two squads. With Jonathon Crawford on the mound, the Gators bats will look to stay hot against the Tigers pitching. In the big picture, our bats are going now, OSullivan said. Were seeing the ball a lot better, so hopefully, moving forward, this will catapult us into being a really good offensive team come the postseason. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.
