Hours before, Devin Colson, 18, drove to Millers apartment at 2307 SW 32nd Place to retrieve personal belongings. She brought a 15-yearold friend along. Shortly after Colson entered unit No. 4 inside Southwood Apartments, she and Miller got into a physical Valuri, Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman. Colson left the apartment, and Millers friend and roommate, Gbati Djeri, told her not to come back.

The Gainesville Regional Transit System held an informational meeting Thursday night at City Hall proposing changes to bus routes running through the city, UF and Santa Fe College. Douglas Robinson, chief transit planner for RTS, said the changes are the result of funding, route performance, citizen input and student enrollment evaluations. The approved changes will go into effect on Aug. 19 and will run until Dec. 30. The changes under consideration include adding a Saturday service for Route 25, which runs from the UF Commuter Lot to Gainesville Regional Airport, and extending all Sunday routes to 6 p.m. The latest Sunday hours this summer end at about 5 p.m., according to information from the RTS website. Other changes include extending Route 121, which currently runs from the Hub to the Commuter Lot at UF, east RTS proposes route changes at informational meetingMiller SEE SHOOTING, PAGE 8 MELANIE WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterEarth, Venus and the sun will align Tuesday in a rare astronomical event that wont be repeated for more than a century. A dark spot will be visible moving across the sun as Venus passes directly between it and Earth. Spectators in the Sunshine State can observe the phenomenon, called a transit, from 6:03 p.m. to 8:26 p.m., depending on location. Peter Barnes, assistant scientist of astronomy at UF, said the next transit wont be until 2117. The reason these transits are so rare, Barnes said, is because Venus orbit around the sun is tilted compared to Earths orbit. The UF Department of Astronomy will provide public a free opportunity to view Venus transit safely on the east end of Flavet Field. Francisco Reyes, associate scientist and coordinator of the astronomy event, cautions that observation of the sun without a eyesight. According to Peter Nguyen, UF astronomy alumnus, the suns brightness could destroy even the optical instruments of the Hubble Space Telescope. The rarity is what makes it exciting for me, Nguyen said.

Construction on the overpass, located south of Archer Road near the 900 block of Southwest 13th Street, began It will be completed this fall, said Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency Interim Director Kelly Huard Fisher. The overpass was once a railroad bridge that was part of the Depot Avenue Rail Trail, but now it is a pedestrian and bicycle path. reath said the rail trail will be closed during construction. Southwest 13th Street will not be closed, but it may have single-lane closures, Fisher said. The new overpass is designed to pay homage to Gainesvilles past and future, she said. The design features a railroad track in the form of a double helix, or DNA strand. Gainesville was founded on railroad commerce, Fisher said. She said the track will twist to a double helix to represent biotechnology and research. The agency held a competition for the design of the new overpass. The winning design was created by a team of engineers and landscape architects from Reynolds, Smith and Hills Inc., according to a press release. At least three more sections need to be installed before the overpass is completed. They are manufactured off-site and can be erected fairly quickly, Fisher said. The project is being funded by the redevelopment agencys College Park/University Heights Redevelopment area and is budgeted for $999,000. The project also features a stairway connecting 13th Street to the rail trail, according to the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency website. This is one project in a series of initiatives, which include brick sidewalks, new lighting nectivity between UF, Innovation Square and downtown.

TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 David Carr / Alligator Staff dium Monday evening. Baralt is the director of Gainesville Football Rentals. SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterIts a tradition almost as old as the Gator chomp every football gameday weekend, real estate values in Gainesville spike. A single parking spot could cost Gator fans more than $20, and hotel prices rise sky-high. This fall, locals and students may have a way to cash in on this sporadic overcrowding. Gainesville Football Rentals allows families and students who live close to UF to list and rent their houses on weekends when accommodations are in high demand, such as graduation, game days and Gator Growl. What this does is provide alternatives, said Daniel Baralt, director of the Gainesville rentals. People are going to have to pay good money, but in return they get a house within walking distance to campus in most cases. The parent company, Rent Like a Champion, started at the University of Notre Dame, where football season brings droves of out-of-town fans. It was a huge success, so the program extended to Pennsylvania State University and now UF. Out-of-town groups paid about $2,000 per weekend at Notre Dame, and Baralt imagined the price will be similar in Gainesville. It depends how far away the house is and which game day weekend theyd like to visit, said Baralt, a 22-year-old sociology senior. The idea is you want to work with the demand of the weekend more people would want to see UF vs. Florida State University than UF vs. Western Kentucky. Those renting out their houses would pocket most of that money. For example, Baralt said, if a house rents for $2,500 one weekend, the fulltime occupants could pocket between $1,800 and $2,100. Also, if an occupant rents his or her house out 14 times or less during a year, he or she doesnt have to disclose that information in taxes. Its no different than you leaving town for a weekend and letting a friend stay at your place, he said. Coty Berdugo, a 21-year-old accounting masters degree student, thought the money hed which is less than a block away from campus, makes the service attractive. Berdugo has sold parking in the past for between $10 and $20, but never gave much thought to renting out his entire house. It might be kind of odd to let people you dont know sleep in your bed, he said. But for the money, we could work it out.

Playground BullyZero-tolerance policies can harm studentsRecently, Floridas controversial Stand Your Ground law has raised some serious discussions about the ability of people to defend themselves or others in violent or aggressive situations. While more and more laws across the country seem to afpublic schools appear to be moving in the opposite direction. In April of this year, a 9-year-old boy named Nathan Pemberton was suspended from his elementary school due to a bullying incident, but he was not the bully. Instead, Nathan decided after weeks of being bullied that and punched him in the face, Nathan punched his aggressor. Due to an illogical zero-tolerance policy, the school suspended Nathan for becoming involved in the physical altercation. on each issue, zero-tolerance policies make self-defense a punishable action. In May, another incident sheds even more light on the absurdity of high school policies related to bullying. Stormy Rich, an 18-year-old student at Umatilla High School in Umatilla, Fla., was riding a middle-school bus to period class in high school. While riding the bus, Rich witnessed incidents of bullying against a mentally challenged middle-school girl by a group of other students. After Rich reported the bullying to both the bus driver she would tell the girls that if they did not stop harassing the other girl, Rich would have to handle the situation herself because it appeared the school wasnt going to do anything. calling Stormy a bully for telling the girls to stop. Rich also lost her ability to ride the middle-school bus to school. Schools across the country have similar zero-tolerance policies related to these issues. regard the facts, situations and people involved. Policies that punish students for reasonably defending themselves put them in potentially horrible scenarios. If stuwith a tarnished academic record. Zero-tolerance policies take all thinking out of school administration and discipline, but its about time someone starts thinking about the unintended consequences of punishing those who stand up for themselves and others.Americans shouldnt ignore soda servingsA good rule of thumb is to never tell New Yorkers what to do. ing.

Not for one second do I believe these companies are actually and legitimately concerned for their consumers right to make choices. They are only worrying about their bottom line: sales.

That means trouble for companies whose livelihood depends on people putting toxic substances into their bodies. the target here is not so much the consumer but the corpoaggregate website at which Im a staff writer.

TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorUnite Party is limiting Student Bodys right to free speechLast Tuesdays Student Senate meeting was a historic moment for UF. It marked the passage of Senate Bill 2012-1046, a bill that infringes on every UF students fundamental right to speak his or her mind. Though vaguely worded, the bill prohibits any UF student from voicing opinions on upcoming elections through any medium even personal Facebook posts are included until just one week before the election. What can you do during the 50 weeks there isnt an election on campus? Youre not allowed to speak about either partys platform or candidates without risking disqualifying them. ty, was absolutely shocked to see so many prominent Unite leaders at Tuesdays meeting speak in favor of abridging my rights. Unite Senators Christina Bonarrigo, Cayman Weimer and others said that they are limiting your free speech for your own good. It sounds as though they dont want to be held accountable for when they dont work for you. They are afraid of being challenged. When earnest students try to make their opinions heard, as I did on Tuesday, they shoot us down with vitriol and accusations of partisan politics. This isnt about petty partisanship. This is about the Unite Partys attempt to shut out free discourse and dissenting views by limiting our ability to discuss elections, platforms and candidates. And so far, its worked. Weve let it work. Isnt it great to be a Florida Gator? Helie Dharia UF Freshman Recent budget cuts cause confusionIm confused by what the UF administration is doing to cover the $38.2 million cut in state funding. Dean Colson, the chair of the Board of Governors, the highest governing authority of the State University System, said reduction will be restored to the baseline next year, and that Our Universities will continue to tap their reserves yearround in order to save Recently, Florida Senate President Haridopolos said that the reductions to state university funding were one-time cuts that should be addressed with reserves. I understand UF being upset about the reduced state funding, but I dont understand why they are so blind to the reasons for it. Imagine if you have $50,000 in a savings account and your boss just told you that next year youll be making $25,000 less but the year after, you will get your full salary back. Do you go out and sell your car and house, and kick out your kids? No, you spend your savings and make sure your full salary is restored next year. Jeremiah Tattersall Fight Back Florida Gainesville Labor Coalition Its close to nine months since Occupy Wall Street came onto the scene and caused a stir by peacefully sitting in Zuccotti Park. In this time, several different Occupy groups have sprung up around the nation. I remember going to Milwaukee in November for a convention and stopping by Occupy Milwaukee. The bone. Yet here was a group of people who had built a whole community and, despite the weather conditions, were standing their ground. One of the biggest criticisms of the Occupy movement was its lack of demands. Yet once presented, it seemed media continued to hark this point. However, what I think the media didnt press upon was the effect that the Occupiers had upon the general population. Their demands no longer became important. Instead, the reaction toward the Occupiers by the ones in power was what became highlighted in the mass media. In national news I began reading about mass arrests, pepper spraying and general police brutality. The powerful picture of Dorli Rainey, an 84-year-old Occupy Seattle activist, with pepper spray covering her face as two men attempted to wash it off, has been ingrained in many peoples minds. What threat did Rainey pose to the police? It makes one wonder about the hyper-power that the ones at the top hold and the ease in which they are willing to apply violence to their own citizens. The incident at University of California, Davis has sparked outrage. The student protesters had linked arms and overstayed their welcome, which prompted the arrival of the police. The protesters were vocal and stood down, and sprayed them with pepper spray. An forth several times, keeping the the nozzle close to the students faces. These protesters by that point had submitted and were sitting down. Was this to assemble and speak their minds. The vehemence displayed while dealing with these protesters brought about a stark contradiction in the actions of the respective parties. While the protesters remained calm, the authorities showed their ugly side. The abuse of power from the authorities resulted in lending credence to the movement. It exploited the contradictions of peaceful versus the powerful, the poor versus the rich, and of course the truth versus the lies. You can disagree with Occupiers and their stances. You can call them whiny, unhygienic or lazy. However, you cant deny that since their movement started, the level of awareness of the U.S. citizen has risen. The Occupy movement may have not made a drastic impact on our social order, but we have to acknowledge the sheer dedication to the cause. As citizens we are powerful and, as the Occupiers have taught us, we cant be cowed by the authorities. Remember, there is strength in numbers. Michela Martinazzi is an art history junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.Occupy movement has inspired manyColumn It is of some concern that the pronoun they is constantly used to refer to the government. If the United States is a government of, by, and for the people, then shouldnt the pronoun we be more appropriate? Of course, we sounds both odd and confusing, but this absurdity is revealing. Americans are not incorrect in referring to the government as they; indeed, the government has become something other than us. As the United States arose as an unmatched global power from the ashes of World War II, the military made a transition from we to they. people, and if not, for how long has this been true? Most importantly, it must be clear that troops cannot be judged based on the actions they perform. Vacuous catchphrases like Support our Troops dangerously eliminate the distinction between U.S. policymakers and the soldiers who are ordered to do their bidding. At a time in our nations history when the national security apparatus is larger than ever before, it is the duty of American citizens to critically assess the status and necessity of our miliUnited States is trapped in a vicious cycle. Today, American troops must defend our freedom because we have withheld the promise of freedom from so many for so long. We have exerted our military might not only in the pursuit of physical defense, but for economic gain. Examples include the Philippines, Nicaragua, Honduras, Cuba, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, East Timor, Indonesia, El Salvador, Afghanistan and Iraq the list is disturbingly long. Our victims are not happy. Since 1952, the U.S. military has killed an estimated 8 million people. Since 1775, the United States has suffered 2,489,335 casualties of war. These numbers speak for themselves. We must not allow holidays like Memorial Day and Veterans Day to dilute our dedication to justice. It is not a contradiction to support our troops that is, the individual men and women in uniform and stand opposed to the unjust actions they often carry out in the name of our government. Our troops are acting under the orders of them, not us. Many may suggest that it goes against proper taste to make such claims around Memorial Day, but I could not think of a better time. The Department of Defense reports that 128 service members have died in Afghanistan this year. If we wish to have fewer troops to memorialize this time next year, then we cannot cease to be critical of them until we no longer sounds so unusual. Andrew Pentland is a history junior at UF.

All underrepresented secondand third-year UF students majoring in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) have until Friday to apply for Gator Launch. Gator Launch is a program hosted by UFs Career Resource Center that pairs students with professional mentors and offers activities to enhance professional development. To apply, students must and submit a one-page essay and an updated resume, which can be done by email or in person. The application form can be found on the CRCs website. After Friday, students will still be able to apply on a rolling basis. Gator Launch is a mentor ing and education program that is designed to provide students with an opportunity to network with a mentor in Gator Launch coordinator Kertesha Riley. Members of the program will get a grasp of what being choice is all about. Gator Launch also aims to enhance students professional skills. Christine Schaefer, a 21-year-old materials science and engineering senior, joined Gator Launch for the networking opportunities. Students can converse with their mentors as often as they like either in person, by phone or by email, Riley said. My mentor taught me the business aspect of engineer Schaefer was accepted to Gator Launch for both her sophomore and junior years. She said she appreciated what the mentor program did for her. Gator Launch is a learning tool for students wanting to learn the basics of the industry and how to act profesGator Launch eases STEM transitionSome routes would extend to weekendson Second Avenue to 12th Street where buses can pick up students near Norman Hall, Sorority Row and along Museum Road. The route would also have three buses running. Route 27 would have a Sundayonly service to the airport. Several routes under the considered changes, however, would no longer be running. Robinson said the 400 bus ser vice, which includes Routes 401, 402, 403, 406 and 407, would no weekday routes Routes 1, 6, 9, 10, 25 and 35 would run on Saturday with Routes 15 and 20 added on Sundays. Route 303, also known as Later Gator D, which runs from downtown Gainesville to FloridaWorks at Southwest 13th Street, would stop running on Thursday and Friday nights because of low usage, Robinson said. The route would still be available on Saturday nights. The decision to remove weekday service on this route had a lot to do with this route overlapping Route 13, which runs late on weekRoute 13 has had higher ridership Bus routes going through Santa Fe College also face hour and frequency reductions due to funding cuts by the college.

The approved changes will go into effect on Aug. 19 and will run until Dec. 30. The changes under consideration include adding a Saturday service for Route 25, which runs from the UF Commuter Lot to Gainesville Regional Airport, and extending all Sunday routes to 6 p.m. The latest Sunday hours this summer end at about 5 p.m., according to information from the RTS website. Other changes include extending Route 121, which currently runs from the Hub to the Commuter Lot at UF, east RTS proposes route changes at informational meetingMiller SEE SHOOTING, PAGE 8 MELANIE WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterEarth, Venus and the sun will align Tuesday in a rare astronomical event that wont be repeated for more than a century. A dark spot will be visible moving across the sun as Venus passes directly between it and Earth. Spectators in the Sunshine State can observe the phenomenon, called a transit, from 6:03 p.m. to 8:26 p.m., depending on location. Peter Barnes, assistant scientist of astronomy at UF, said the next transit wont be until 2117. The reason these transits are so rare, Barnes said, is because Venus orbit around the sun is tilted compared to Earths orbit. The UF Department of Astronomy will provide public a free opportunity to view Venus transit safely on the east end of Flavet Field. Francisco Reyes, associate scientist and coordinator of the astronomy event, cautions that observation of the sun without a eyesight. According to Peter Nguyen, UF astronomy alumnus, the suns brightness could destroy even the optical instruments of the Hubble Space Telescope.

The overpass was once a railroad bridge that was part of the Depot Avenue Rail Trail, but now it is a pedestrian and bicycle path. reath said the rail trail will be closed during construction. Southwest 13th Street will not be closed, but it may have single-lane closures, Fisher said. The new overpass is designed to pay homage to Gainesvilles past and future, she said. The design features a railroad track in the form of a double helix, or DNA strand. Gainesville was founded on railroad commerce, Fisher said. She said the track will twist to a double helix to represent biotechnology and research. The agency held a competition for the design of the new overpass. The winning design was created by a team of engineers and landscape architects from Reynolds, Smith and Hills Inc., according to a press release. At least three more sections need to be installed before the overpass is completed. They are manufactured off-site and can be erected fairly quickly, Fisher said. The project is being funded by the redevelopment agencys College Park/University Heights Redevelopment area and is budgeted for $999,000.

TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 David Carr / Alligator Staff dium Monday evening. Baralt is the director of Gainesville Football Rentals. SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterIts a tradition almost as old as the Gator chomp every football gameday weekend, real estate values in Gainesville spike. A single parking spot could cost Gator fans more than $20, and hotel prices rise sky-high. This fall, locals and students may have a way to cash in on this sporadic overcrowding. Gainesville Football Rentals allows families and students who live close to UF to list and rent their houses on weekends when accommodations are in high demand, such as graduation, game days and Gator Growl. What this does is provide alternatives, said Daniel Baralt, director of the Gainesville rentals. People are going to have to pay good money, but in return they get a house within walking distance to campus in most cases. The parent company, Rent Like a Champion, started at the University of Notre Dame, where football season brings droves of out-of-town fans. It was a huge success, so the program extended to Pennsylvania State University and now UF. Out-of-town groups paid about $2,000 per weekend at Notre Dame, and Baralt imagined the price will be similar in Gainesville. It depends how far away the house is and which game day weekend theyd like to visit, said Baralt, a 22-year-old sociology senior. The idea is you want to work with the demand of the weekend more people would want to see UF vs. Florida State University than UF vs. Western Kentucky. Those renting out their houses would pocket most of that money. For example, Baralt said, if a house rents for $2,500 one weekend, the fulltime occupants could pocket between $1,800 and $2,100. Also, if an occupant rents his or her house out 14 times or less during a year, he or she doesnt have to disclose that information in taxes. Its no different than you leaving town for a weekend and letting a friend stay at your place, he said. Coty Berdugo, a 21-year-old accounting masters degree student, thought the money hed which is less than a block away from campus, makes the service attractive. Berdugo has sold parking in the past for between $10 and $20, but never gave much thought to renting out his entire house. It might be kind of odd to let people you dont know sleep in your bed, he said. But for the money, we could work it out.

Playground BullyZero-tolerance policies can harm studentsRecently, Floridas controversial Stand Your Ground law has raised some serious discussions about the ability of people to defend themselves or others in violent or aggressive situations. While more and more laws across the country seem to afpublic schools appear to be moving in the opposite direction. In April of this year, a 9-year-old boy named Nathan Pemberton was suspended from his elementary school due to a bullying incident, but he was not the bully. Instead, Nathan decided after weeks of being bullied that and punched him in the face, Nathan punched his aggressor. Due to an illogical zero-tolerance policy, the school suspended Nathan for becoming involved in the physical alter cation. on each issue, zero-tolerance policies make self-defense a punishable action. In May, another incident sheds even more light on the absurdity of high school policies related to bullying. Stormy Rich, an 18-year-old student at Umatilla High School in Umatilla, Fla., was riding a middle-school bus to period class in high school. While riding the bus, Rich witnessed incidents of bullying against a mentally challenged middle-school girl by a group of other students. After Rich reported the bullying to both the bus driver she would tell the girls that if they did not stop harassing the other girl, Rich would have to handle the situation herself because it appeared the school wasnt going to do anything. calling Stormy a bully for telling the girls to stop. Rich also lost her ability to ride the middle-school bus to school. Schools across the country have similar zero-tolerance policies related to these issues. regard the facts, situations and people involved. Policies that punish students for reasonably defending themselves put them in potentially horrible scenarios. If stuwith a tarnished academic record. Zero-tolerance policies take all thinking out of school administration and discipline, but its about time someone starts thinking about the unintended consequences of punishing those who stand up for themselves and others.Americans shouldnt ignore soda servingsA good rule of thumb is to never tell New Yorkers what to do. ing.

Not for one second do I believe these companies are actually and legitimately concerned for their consumers right to make choices. They are only worrying about their bottom line: sales.

That means trouble for companies whose livelihood depends on people putting toxic substances into their bodies. the target here is not so much the consumer but the corpoaggregate website at which Im a staff writer.

TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorUnite Party is limiting Student Bodys right to free speechLast Tuesdays Student Senate meeting was a historic moment for UF. It marked the passage of Senate Bill 2012-1046, a bill that infringes on every UF students fundamental right to speak his or her mind. Though vaguely worded, the bill prohibits any UF student from voicing opinions on upcoming elections through any medium even personal Facebook posts are included until just one week before the election. What can you do during the 50 weeks there isnt an election on campus? Youre not allowed to speak about either partys platform or candidates without risking disqualifying them. ty, was absolutely shocked to see so many prominent Unite leaders at Tuesdays meeting speak in favor of abridging my rights. Unite Senators Christina Bonarrigo, Cayman Weimer and others said that they are limiting your free speech for your own good. It sounds as though they dont want to be held accountable for when they dont work for you. They are afraid of being challenged. When earnest students try to make their opinions heard, as I did on Tuesday, they shoot us down with vitriol and accusations of partisan politics. This isnt about petty partisanship. This is about the Unite Partys attempt to shut out free discourse and dissenting views by limiting our ability to discuss elections, platforms and candidates. And so far, its worked. Weve let it work. Isnt it great to be a Florida Gator? Helie Dharia UF Freshman Recent budget cuts cause confusionIm confused by what the UF administration is doing to cover the $38.2 million cut in state funding. Dean Colson, the chair of the Board of Governors, the highest governing authority of the State University System, said reduction will be restored to the baseline next year, and that Our Universities will continue to tap their reserves yearround in order to save Recently, Florida Senate President Haridopolos said that the reductions to state university funding were one-time cuts that should be addressed with reserves. I understand UF being upset about the reduced state funding, but I dont understand why they are so blind to the reasons for it. Imagine if you have $50,000 in a savings account and your boss just told you that next year youll be making $25,000 less but the year after, you will get your full salary back. Do you go out and sell your car and house, and kick out your kids? No, you spend your savings and make sure your full salary is restored next year. Jeremiah Tattersall Fight Back Florida Gainesville Labor Coalition Its close to nine months since Occupy Wall Street came onto the scene and caused a stir by peacefully sitting in Zuccotti Park. In this time, several different Occupy groups have sprung up around the nation. I remember going to Milwaukee in November for a convention and stopping by Occupy Milwaukee. The bone. Yet here was a group of people who had built a whole community and, despite the weather conditions, were standing their ground. One of the biggest criticisms of the Occupy movement was its lack of demands. Yet once presented, it seemed media continued to hark this point. However, what I think the media didnt press upon was the effect that the Occupiers had upon the general population. Their demands no longer became important. Instead, the reaction toward the Occupiers by the ones in power was what became highlighted in the mass media. In national news I began reading about mass arrests, pepper spraying and general police brutality. The powerful picture of Dorli Rainey, an 84-year-old Occupy Seattle activist, with pepper spray covering her face as two men attempted to wash it off, has been ingrained in many peoples minds. What threat did Rainey pose to the police? It makes one wonder about the hyper-power that the ones at the top hold and the ease in which they are willing to apply violence to their own citizens. The incident at University of California, Davis has sparked outrage. The student protesters had linked arms and overstayed their welcome, which prompted the arrival of the police. The protesters were vocal and stood down, and sprayed them with pepper spray. An forth several times, keeping the the nozzle close to the students faces. These protesters by that point had submitted and were sitting down. Was this to assemble and speak their minds. The vehemence displayed while dealing with these protesters brought about a stark contradiction in the actions of the respective parties. While the protesters remained calm, the authorities showed their ugly side. The abuse of power from the authorities resulted in lending credence to the movement. It exploited the contradictions of peaceful versus the powerful, the poor versus the rich, and of course the truth versus the lies. You can disagree with Occupiers and their stances. You can call them whiny, unhygienic or lazy. However, you cant deny that since their movement started, the level of awareness of the U.S. citizen has risen. The Occupy movement may have not made a drastic impact on our social order, but we have to acknowledge the sheer dedication to the cause. As citizens we are powerful and, as the Occupiers have taught us, we cant be cowed by the authorities. Remember, there is strength in numbers. Michela Martinazzi is an art history junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.Occupy movement has inspired manyColumn It is of some concern that the pronoun they is constantly used to refer to the government. If the United States is a government of, by, and for the people, then shouldnt the pronoun we be more appropriate? Of course, we sounds both odd and confusing, but this absurdity is revealing. Americans are not incorrect in referring to the government as they; indeed, the government has become something other than us. As the United States arose as an unmatched global power from the ashes of World War II, the military made a transition from we to they. people, and if not, for how long has this been true? Most importantly, it must be clear that troops cannot be judged based on the actions they perform. Vacuous catchphrases like Support our Troops dangerously eliminate the distinction between U.S. policymakers and the soldiers who are ordered to do their bidding. At a time in our nations history when the national security apparatus is larger than ever before, it is the duty of American citizens to critically assess the status and necessity of our miliUnited States is trapped in a vicious cycle. Today, American troops must defend our freedom because we have withheld the promise of freedom from so many for so long. We have exerted our military might not only in the pursuit of physical defense, but for economic gain. Examples include the Philippines, Nicaragua, Honduras, Cuba, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, East Timor, Indonesia, El Salvador, Afghanistan and Iraq the list is disturbingly long. Our victims are not happy. Since 1952, the U.S. military has killed an estimated 8 million people. Since 1775, the United States has suffered 2,489,335 casualties of war. These numbers speak for themselves. We must not allow holidays like Memorial Day and Veterans Day to dilute our dedication to justice. It is not a contradiction to support our troops that is, the individual men and women in uniform and stand opposed to the unjust actions they often carry out in the name of our government. Our troops are acting under the orders of them, not us. Many may suggest that it goes against proper taste to make such claims around Memorial Day, but I could not think of a better time. The Department of Defense reports that 128 service members have died in Afghanistan this year. If we wish to have fewer troops to memorialize this time next year, then we cannot cease to be critical of them until we no longer sounds so unusual. Andrew Pentland is a history junior at UF.

Members of the program will get a grasp of what being choice is all about. Gator Launch also aims to enhance students professional skills. Christine Schaefer, a 21-year-old materials science and engineering senior, joined Gator Launch for the networking opportunities. Students can converse with their mentors as often as they like either in person, by phone or by email, Riley said. My mentor taught me the business aspect of engineer Schaefer was accepted to Gator Launch for both her sophomore and junior years. She said she appreciated what the mentor program did for her. Gator Launch is a learning tool for students wanting to learn the basics of the industry and how to act profesGator Launch eases STEM transitionSome routes would extend to weekendson Second Avenue to 12th Street where buses can pick up students near Norman Hall, Sorority Row and along Museum Road. The route would also have three buses running. Route 27 would have a Sundayonly service to the airport. Several routes under the considered changes, however, would no longer be running. Robinson said the 400 bus ser vice, which includes Routes 401, 402, 403, 406 and 407, would no weekday routes Routes 1, 6, 9, 10, 25 and 35 would run on Saturday with Routes 15 and 20 added on Sundays. Route 303, also known as Later Gator D, which runs from downtown Gainesville to FloridaWorks at Southwest 13th Street, would stop running on Thursday and Friday nights because of low usage, Robinson said. The route would still be available on Saturday nights. The decision to remove weekday service on this route had a lot to do with this route overlapping Route 13, which runs late on weekRoute 13 has had higher ridership Bus routes going through Santa Fe College also face hour and frequency reductions due to funding cuts by the college. RTS is accepting questions and comments about the changes until June 12. Residents can submit their concerns at http://go-rts.com/.
