On Tuesday, a New York federal judge requested the Department of Homeland Security to seize the remains of a 70-million-year-old dinosaur artifact in New York City believed to have been stolen from Mongolia. The fossil was illegally imported from Great Britain to Gainesville buyer. Beverly Sensbach, assistant director of the Florida Museum of Natural History, said the museum didnt promote the fossil while it was in the city. We have personally never seen it, she said. According to a civil complaint, tained false information about the artifact, which incorrectly said it was from Great Britain and was worth $15,000. On May 20, the fossil was sold to an anonymous buyer for $1,052,500. Heritage Auctions, the Dallasbased auction company overseeing the sale, halted the sale on May 21 pending an investigation into the fossils origins. The artifact is currently located in an art storage facility in New York City. We have cooperated in the investigation process for paleontologists to expeditiously examine the skeleton, and we will continue to cooperate with authorities, said Jeff Halperin, co-founder of Heritage Auctions, in a statement.

This is ridiculous. Have a fun and safe break, and be sure to check back Summer B.President Obama displays incompetenceWell, Im just going to come right out and say it. President Obama is arguably the worst president in American history. Never have the American people been sold such a bill of goods as they have with this man. Yes, I consider myself to be politically conservative, and no, I did not vote for Obama. Im sure this surprises no one. Full disclosure is important. But if you think Im harsh in my dislike of the mans conduct in his duties as the commander in chief, you cant imagine how much more upset I would be with him had I actually voted for him. Maybe I can put that into better perspective. In 2004, fewer than 60 days after returning home from a tough tour in Iraq, I was absolutely furious with the Bush administration. So this lifelong Republican marched down to the polling place and cast my vote for John Kerry. I did not vote for him because I was suddenly a bornagain Democrat, but rather because I believed then, as I do now, that when leadership failure occurs, it is the peoples ing. If I was one who viewed Obama as an inspiring leader, a unifying force or even the man of destiny that the president obviously feels he is, I would still be extremely puzzled about whats going on in his mind. Where are the successes? Right now, the prevailing narrative coming from White erything was worse than we thought. During his latest speech in Cleveland, the president explained that recessions like the current one historically take more than a decade to sort out. Id like to know who put that on the teleprompter. Apparently the president has such a low opinion of the American public that his best argument, his most inspiring pep talk to the voters, essentially amounts to, Dont expect much. I do not hate Obama. On the whole, he seems like a very charming and personable fellow. However, he is absolutely falling down on the job, and our country is suffering for it. Therefore, I hold him responsible. Conversely, I hold no great love for his opponent, Mitt Romney. In many ways, he seems very similar to Obama; only he does seem to know how to operate a calculator, balance a budget and manage something other than a celebrity fundraiser. Speaking of fundraisers, the president has done more presidential fundraiser, George W. Bush. If each gala runs at about two hours in length, that equals seven full workweeks. This is disgraceful, even if you dont consider the expense to the taxpayer for his travel and security details. The only thing I would say to this very charming and personable fellow in the White House is that yes, President Obama, America is watching you. Everything he does seems to be painted as historic, and for good reason. No president has ever proven to be this historically disengaged, so historically absent or so historically incompetent to meet the challenges of his ofIm therefore predicting a historically bad night for him in November because Americans understand, this time the hiring. I know Im hoping for some real change. Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Joshua Fonziopinions@alligator.org

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 What happened to free speech and common courtesy?Ive been a student senator since the last election in spring, and one thing has been made abundantly clear in my short time in the Senate: The Unite Party doesnt like being told that theyre wrong or that theyre corrupt and incompetent, or even that you want to amend one of their bills to be grammatically correct. Its partisanship on a level of its own. hearing bad things about themselves. Im just as likely to get upset by an insult as the next guy. But while I disagree with what they might have to say, I dont cut off their ability to say it. Beyond being a First Amendment right granted by the Constitution, its common courtesy. For those of you not familiar with the way Senate works, we run our meetings using Roberts Rules of Order. When debating a bill, any side can make the motion to call the previous question, which essentially cuts off all debate and moves directly into voting on a bill. Its the Unite Partys favorite motion and probably the only one most of their senators know (Ive yet to hear most of them speak, so I cant be sure). Now, even within Roberts Rules of Order, calling the previous question is regarded as a highly disrespectful motion, especially if someone else still wants to speak. But Unite Party Sen. Andrew Schein takes disrespect to a completely new level when he stands up (generally during debate time) and calls the previous question only to then vote in favor of the bill. Its a disgusting maneuver and shows how little respect he has for the 49 percent of students who voted against his party in the last election. To further demonstrate the point, after bill presentation, questions and three full rounds of pro-con debate (the maximum allowed without a motion to extend) youve exhausted a maximum of 28 minutes. If his party wants to vote in favor or against a bill, we cant stop them, but I would hope that he would at least have the respect to allow the representatives of the Student Body to speak on behalf of their constituents. The Unite Partys actions thus far into the summer session have been the exact opposite of their promises to increase communication and transparency. I just wish theyd have the decency to stop being so intellectually dishonest about their views and actually say they dont care about what anyone has to say. Max Stein Students Party SenatorLetter to the EditorRecent economic growth numbers are begging the question: are we getting out of the recession any time soon? The daunting question looms like a dark cloud over the heads of lawmakers and business owners who dont know what to expect from a lethargic economy. This uncertainty is stifling action in the private sector. A disappointing May jobs report pushed the unemployment rate back to 8.2 percent, and there is already extra doubt about the modest growth estimates for the second quarter. Historically, economic growth has been fastest after a downturn. In 1934, following the Great Depression, the U.S. economy grew an unprecedented 10.9 percent. However, since 2009, the average annual growth rate has been 2.4 percent, while the long-term trend in the U.S. has been 3.1 percent since 1948. So why do we still see sluggish growth? Among the many factors that influence the health of the economy, one reality is that the economy reacts to perception. If you dont believe youll have a job tomorrow, youre unlikely to buy a new house today. You will probably save your money instead. Likewise, a business apprehensive about prospective income is unlikely to spend money on new hires. Even with the Federal Reserve driving interest rates near zero, employers are reluctant to take risks with a lack of confidence in the recovery. Over the last several years, a wave of new policies and political events has given rise to uncertainty in the political and economic climate. The health care overhaul will implement sweeping changes for employers beginning in 2013. Recently, I was able to attend a presentation by Gary Ellis, the chief financial officer of Medtronic. He explained how the type of system adopted by the U.S. was less of a concern to them than figuring out the details of the bill. We operate in all health care systems of the world and turn a profit, he said. Were more concerned about figuring out exactly what is in this bill. The effect this bill will have remains hazy even for those closely watching it. Last year, the Bush-era tax cuts were extended, but only until Jan. 1, 2013. Without knowing whether the tax cut will be extended again, business owners are wary of commitments. The effect of a tax cut to stimulate hiring in the economy is diminished by its short-term nature. Last summer, Republicans and Democrats clashed over the debt ceiling until the 11th hour. This event was toxic for the markets, amplified fear over the ability to contain public debt and led to a credit downgrade for the government. Worst of all, a sequel may be right around the corner as the debt nears its ceiling again. The press favorite two words in 2010 were double dip, which has not helped quell the uncertainty. With incessant questioning of the U.S.s potential to relapse into recession to the current debt debacle of Europe, the financial press has been filled with fear. Lawmakers can help ameliorate this uncertainty. First, they must provide the business community with lasting solutions, not temporary fixes. They need to be efficient in making decisions and avoid drawn-out political battles. This is especially important for debate on the debt ceiling, as strong creditworthiness is crucial for the nations economy. Second, President Barack Obamas administration needs to work on the clarity of the health care overhaul and finish crafting the language of the recent reforms such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform bill. Businesses need to know what they are up against. Lastly, lawmakers should remember that real solutions often require politically tough decisions, and if the economy is doing well, the people will trust those tough decisions.

On the social networking and shopping website, Etsy, she is Silvertree999, armed with handmade jewelry and nature photographs taken with her mothers These personas are seemingly unrelated, but Melnichuk disagrees. Science and art really go hand in hand, she said. You have to be a creative person to do well in science. Melnichuk, who spent her teenage years in Brooklyn, N.Y., painted throughout high school. She was accepted to the School of Visual Arts, Savannah College of Art and Design and other well-known art schools, as well as waitlisted at Carnegie Mellon for physics. She kept her name on the waitlist thinking she wouldnt get in. I wouldnt have to make a decision, upset parents, et cetera, she said, and then I got in, and there was nothing I could say after that. Thus, her 11 years and counting of schooling began. Melnichuk attended the University of Hawaii after graduating from Carnegie Mellon with a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry. She received her masters in chemistry at Hawaii and came to UF in 2006. In Gainesville shes developed a creers and sunsets at Paynes Prairie. Jewelry making started for Melnichuk as an accident after her bracelet broke. At the bead store she had a thought; Oh, theres a lot of stuff here, this is kind of fun. So, she started buying, making things and taking classes. To Melnichuk, her art is a stress relief from her work with UFs Quantum Theory Project. Because of this, jewelry making and photography indirectly supplement her work in the same way that a hot shower or a few hours at the gym seem to generate the best ideas. If you think of something else, if you read a book thats not related to your work at all, at some point, just doing that clears your mind, she said. She put her work on Etsy in February and has had one sale so far from a very supportive aunt. Someone ordered this pendant, this pricey piece, and I didnt think it would ing. Melnichuk hopes to sell most of her jewelry stock by the time she leaves Gainesville next year. Even with her stack of chemistry degrees, she acknowledges art as an important part of her life. I always tell my students not to think of science as this dry thing, she said. If youre going to be good, you have to be creative. Otherwise, you really are a drone. To Kathryn Wilson, The Gator Nation knows no bounds. Wilson uses Etsy to display and sell her products online, her shop is called GatorMade. Her creations embody a home footry all orange and blue and also bring The Swamp spirit abroad in the form of pillows, scarves and signs. Its amazing, Wilson, a 1971 graduate of UF, said. I didnt even realize how global it could be until I put this stuff on Etsy. Wilsons creativity and love for the Gators became intertwined when she her time, she attended countless home football and basketball games, she said, and eventually graduated with a degree in interior design. After years of being an interior deWilson decided it was time to turn back to the things she loved most crafting and UF. I love being creative, and Im a lifelong Gator, she said. It just kicked me right in the pants that I need to start doing stuff I enjoy. After making enough products to expand, Wilson asked her son to make a website. Instead, he introduced her to Etsy. He told her it was easy to set up and use Wilson said. He was right, and she has been using it to spread orange and blue all over the world. Ive sent things to Kentucky, to California, to Japan, Wilson said. One of her products, a sign that says how many miles a particular place is from The Swamp, made it more than 7,000 miles to Germany. Social media is a wonderful thing when you can just talk to someone in Germany, and its not going to cost you anything, Wilson said. If Mabelin Castellanos was to read her name on a page, certain letters would pop from the black and white of ink and paper. She would see the as in red, the es in green, the is in yellow and the os in white. Castellanos has grapheme-color synesthesia. The part of her brain that processes words and numbers overlaps with the part of the brain that sees colors. The condition is common among artists, Castellanos said, which would explain the large collection of mixed media art and household knickknacks in her Etsy collection, TelArtes. Its a need I have, she said. It balances my mind. Castellanos is a scientist. After emigrating from Cuba in 1994, Castellanos came to work for UFs department of physiological sciences at a time when the university was the only school in Florida with a medical college. Castellanos believes art and science balance each other. Much of her work is quilt art. She creates a graphic tablet on the computer to print onto fabric, then sews on top of it with different colors and patterns. The scenes are inspired by everyday life. Thats just what I love, people and ambiance, she said. For a while, Castellanos was part of the Artisans Guild Gallery, a co-op for Gainesville artists, she also put up tables and stands at art shows and farmers markets all around Florida. Those became too time-consuming, so she joined Etsy in February. Since then, shes sold two key chains and a quilt art piece. The money is not really an issue, she said, but you like to show what you do in a way. She also enjoys browsing. Etsys great because you can see what other artists are doing, she said. Its even better as a buyer. With her synesthesia and scienceheavy job, Castellanos doesnt see art creation as a choice, but as a necessity. However, it is a welcome necessity. I have a need to see color and put it together, she said.

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 THE STORE IS GETTING EN ERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS. SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue WriterWhat began as a passion for Native American customs expanded into a boutique in 2008, and now the expansion continues in order to serve the community of Gainesville. Otter and Trout Trading Co., located at 625 W University Ave., recently added another room to its store to make space for the growing collection of herbs, books, gems and unusual gifts, but the renovations arent over. Eric Dreaming Trout and Kimberli White Otter have teamed up with Trimark Properties to add energy efas an entire new look for the store, all while keeping its doors open. Otter said their main concern is networking with the community to create wellness on a global scale, but closing during construction would hinder these efforts. We want whatever the Gainesville people want, Trout said. Every Monday through Saturday, customers eagerly wait outside the door until it opens at 11 a.m. and continue to come and browse or seek holistic advice until the store closes at 7 p.m. Although the store is on University Avenue, its main customer base isnt necessarily UF students. Otter said they get all different walks of life visiting the store and most of them discover it through word-ofmouth or from curiosity of the trinkets they spot through the window. I think we stay busy because people are realizing the importance of getting in touch with their ancient roots, Otter said. More people are interested in trying herbal remedies, opposed to chemical and pharmaceutical treatments. Otter gained her knowledge of herbs through a near-death experience from a car accident in 1996. I came back with some gifts I couldnt really explain, she said. I didnt know how I knew what I knew but it just became intuitive to me. She met Trout in 1997, and they combined interests to create a business selling their herbal concoctions out of a tent at Native American powwows. Trout noticed how many people turned to Otter with their ailments, and he encouraged her to open their own store. Otter was already working as a when the space became available, they decided it was where they were going to stay. ing open, the pair plan on continuing to grow, improve and contribute a global healing.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterIn a room with only the noise of a buzzing tattoo gun, conversations formulate out of thin air. For Keri Johnson, a 27-year-old UF student studying religion and nature, and 36-year-old tattoo artist Sleepy Dave Kotinsley, a discussion that started about a thesis paper grew into a community meditation group. Kotinsley, who has been regularly meditating for a year and a half, mentioned that he had an instructor, but he lived out of town. Johnson has been teaching yoga and meditating on her own for about eight years. The two discussed the importance of a community coming together for these types of practices. Through this need grew their Free session was June 1, and there are sessions every Friday. The group is led by either Kotinsley or Johnson at 8:45 a.m. at Sanctuary Yoga, located in the Seigle building, 408 W University Ave., No. 112. The sessions last an hour, but it isnt an hour of seated meditation, Johnson said. It starts with 15 minutes of breathing work and stretching, a half hour of seated practice and then we take a couple minutes at the end to check in, talk about the experience and see what worked and what didnt. Johnson and Kotinsley want to focus on and make it known that this is a nondenominational meditation group. welcome anyone of all levels of meditation. Its really a community-oriented class, where we are learning from each other. people a number that they deem a very 40 people. Johnson and Kotinsley switch off hosting the group, but the schedule isnt set in stone. Hosting the meditation provides them with an outlet to share experiences. Its easy to meditate on your own at home, Kotinsley said. Its the human and community aspect that is very important, and its been great for me personally as well. Kotinsley said there is no end date planned for the future. We want to build something, hopefully something that the community wants to support for years to come, he said.Two Gainesville residents host Free Community Meditation Group David Carr / Alligator StaffKeri Johnson, 27, has been practicing yoga and meditation since 2004.

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Playoffs?! Were talkin about the playoffs!The BCS commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick agreed on a seeded, four-team college football playoff Wednesday. The new model, which would go into effect in 2014, will be reviewed June 26.This [expletive] will not end nowDespite former Gator Percy Harvins trade request, Minnesota GM Rick Spielman has refused to part ways with the All-Pro wide receiver. UF FINISHED 0-2 IN OMAHA. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Last week, Brian Johnson was not thinking about life after Omaha. You avoid it by you want to win a national championship, he said last Tuesday. The whole team has worked so hard, and youve got goals to accomplish before you have the next one. Now, Johnson and eight of his teammates will likely move on to professional baseball. They leave Florida with three straight College World Series appearances, but no national championship. It hasnt sunk in yet, Preston Tucker said. Six days ago, the top-ranked Gators had just arrived in Omaha with the ultimate prize in sight. As the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA straight games to sweep both the NCAA Regional and the Super Regional. However, the Gators demise in Omaha was surprisingly quick. Florida opened the College World Series against two-time defending national champion South Carolina on Saturday with Johnson on the mound. Johnson had a 2.40 ERA in two of the Gators three wins in four tries against the Gamecocks this season. But shutting down South Carolina for a third time proved too tall of an order for Johnson, who lasted just four-plus innings and surrendered The Gamecocks offensive outburst occurred right after a mound visit from OSullivan. South Carolina had loaded the bases with no outs, but OSullivan decided to leave Johnson in the game. We had a two-run lead, OSullivan said. Once again, youve just got to tip your cap. I thought they had some really good at-bats that inning, obviously. Facing elimination against Kent State, Florida sent ace Hudson Randall to the mound Monday. HowevGators after a rain-plagued Super Regional victory against N.C. State. 104 degrees according to ESPN and forced UF coach Kevin OSullivan to pull an overheated Randall, and errors took care of the rest. Randall and Jonathon Crawford, who pitched three innings of relief, gave up four combined unearned runs We made a couple errors in the ized, OSullivan said. That was the difference in the ball game. Errors, heat and a historic postseason winning streak aside, the common thread in both Florida losses came down to untimely hitting. The Gators stranded 21 runners on Florida coping with abrupt end to College World Series runQuotableThats a clown question, bro. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) in response to a reporter Wednesday AP Photo SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 20THE RALLY Joe: Rewind to January 1, 2012. The ball has dropped in New York City, and Im drinking champagne out of a plastic wine glass. A fortune teller decked out in purple robes with a crystal ball saunters over and tells me the Gators will win three national year and that John Carter would be the boxgest Andrew Stanton fanboy, I would weep bitterly. Right after that, I would have traveled to Las Vegas and bet every dime in my pocket that Kevin OSullivans squad would win the 2012 College World Series. Fast-forward six months, and Im glad my little anecdote is just a hypothetical. In easily the most disappointing development in UF sports this season, the top-ranked Gators baseball team was two-and-out in Omaha. Florida was the second team eliminated from the CWS this year despite losing just two starters and boasting an overachieving freshman class. After three straight fruitless trips to Omaha, the biggest championship window in UF baseball history slammed shut with a resounding thud Monday. Corey: sucked in the CWS this year, but to say it was the most disappointing result this season queue Chris Carter Cmon, man! I know its hard to remember that one weekend back seeded Gators softball team to be eliminated from the postseason. Not only did they fail to advance to the Womens College World Secouldnt even win their NCAA Regional, a feat not seen in Gainesville since Chris Leak Bigger disappointment: Baseball, softball or John Carter? Bigger disappointment: Baseball, softball or John Carter? Corey McCalltwitter: @mccall_corey Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer When junior Dwight Barbithe high jump in 2008, he had to spend that summer watching the Olympics from home. This year Barbiasz wants in. I saw all the commercials leading up to the 2008 Olympics, but I was a senior in high school then, Barbiasz said. I would say, Im going to make it to the next one, and thats what Ive been trying to do since then. Over the next 11 days, Barbiasz and 14 current and former Gators will be competing at the Olympic Trials for a spot on Team USA for the 2012 Olympic Games. This is the largest championship track meet in the world, with more than 1,000 athletes competing for 102 spots. Despite the large number of competitors, Barbiasz, who is coming off a win at the Southeastern Conference in triple jump and a record breaking performance at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, is staying relaxed.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 Thompson receives medical redshirt, will return in 2013base in Omaha, and they tallied just two runs in four bases-loaded opportunities. Weve had plenty of opportunities and the other team has played better, its as simple as that, OSullivan said. Im the other as why we lost. Moving on to next season, a depleted Florida roster will look to some of this seasons key underclassmen for leader ship and production. Rising sophomores Casey Turgeon, Justin Shafer and Josh Tobias were all key cogs in the Gators lineup down the stretch this season. Taylor Gushue will Zunino behind the plate. Upcoming juniors Jonathon Crawford and Karsten Whitson will top a formidable starting rotation assuming Crawford builds on his late-season progress and Whitson pitches like he did during his freshman campaign in 2011. UF also anticipates the return of selineup in 2013. Thompson, who was batting .319 through 16 games this season, received a medical redshirt after suffering an ACL tear in his right knee against Vanderbilt on March 16. Regardless of what Florida accomplishes moving forward, the Gators crop of upperclassmen notched three consecutive College World Series appearances in arguably the most successful run in UF baseball history. Their feat will be inat McKethan Stadium. Theyve set a standard that following teams will have to live up to, OSullivan said.

On Tuesday, a New York federal judge requested the Department of Homeland Security to seize the remains of a 70-million-year-old dinosaur artifact in New York City believed to have been stolen from Mongolia. The fossil was illegally imported from Great Britain to Gainesville buyer. Beverly Sensbach, assistant director of the Florida Museum of Natural History, said the museum didnt promote the fossil while it was in the city. We have personally never seen it, she said.

On May 20, the fossil was sold to an anonymous buyer for $1,052,500. Heritage Auctions, the Dallasbased auction company overseeing the sale, halted the sale on May 21 pending an investigation into the fossils origins.

This is ridiculous. Have a fun and safe break, and be sure to check back Summer B.President Obama displays incompetenceWell, Im just going to come right out and say it. President Obama is arguably the worst president in American history. Never have the American people been sold such a bill of goods as they have with this man. Yes, I consider myself to be politically conservative, and no, I did not vote for Obama. Im sure this surprises no one. Full disclosure is important. But if you think Im harsh in my dislike of the mans conduct in his duties as the commander in chief, you cant imagine how much more upset I would be with him had I actually voted for him. Maybe I can put that into better perspective. In 2004, fewer than 60 days after returning home from a tough tour in Iraq, I was absolutely furious with the Bush administration. So this lifelong Republican marched down to the polling place and cast my vote for John Kerry. I did not vote for him because I was suddenly a bornagain Democrat, but rather because I believed then, as I do now, that when leadership failure occurs, it is the peoples ing. If I was one who viewed Obama as an inspiring leader, a unifying force or even the man of destiny that the president obviously feels he is, I would still be extremely puzzled about whats going on in his mind. Where are the successes? Right now, the prevailing narrative coming from White erything was worse than we thought. During his latest speech in Cleveland, the president explained that recessions like the current one historically take more than a decade to sort out. Id like to know who put that on the teleprompter. Apparently the president has such a low opinion of the American public that his best argument, his most inspiring pep talk to the voters, essentially amounts to, Dont expect much. I do not hate Obama. On the whole, he seems like a very charming and personable fellow. However, he is absolutely falling down on the job, and our country is suffering for it. Therefore, I hold him responsible. Conversely, I hold no great love for his opponent, Mitt Romney. In many ways, he seems very similar to Obama; only he does seem to know how to operate a calculator, balance a budget and manage something other than a celebrity fundraiser. Speaking of fundraisers, the president has done more presidential fundraiser, George W. Bush. If each gala runs at about two hours in length, that equals seven full workweeks. This is disgraceful, even if you dont consider the expense to the taxpayer for his travel and security details. The only thing I would say to this very charming and personable fellow in the White House is that yes, President Obama, America is watching you. Everything he does seems to be painted as historic, and for good reason. No president has ever proven to be this historically disengaged, so historically absent or so historically incompetent to meet the challenges of his ofIm therefore predicting a historically bad night for him in November because Americans understand, this time the hiring. I know Im hoping for some real change. Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Joshua Fonziopinions@alligator.org

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 What happened to free speech and common courtesy?Ive been a student senator since the last election in spring, and one thing has been made abundantly clear in my short time in the Senate: The Unite Party doesnt like being told that theyre wrong or that theyre corrupt and incompetent, or even that you want to amend one of their bills to be grammatically correct. Its partisanship on a level of its own. hearing bad things about themselves. Im just as likely to get upset by an insult as the next guy. But while I disagree with what they might have to say, I dont cut off their ability to say it. Beyond being a First Amendment right granted by the Constitution, its common courtesy. For those of you not familiar with the way Senate works, we run our meetings using Roberts Rules of Order. When debating a bill, any side can make the motion to call the previous question, which essentially cuts off all debate and moves directly into voting on a bill. Its the Unite Partys favorite motion and probably the only one most of their senators know (Ive yet to hear most of them speak, so I cant be sure). Now, even within Roberts Rules of Order, calling the previous question is regarded as a highly disrespectful motion, especially if someone else still wants to speak. But Unite Party Sen. Andrew Schein takes disrespect to a completely new level when he stands up (generally during debate time) and calls the previous question only to then vote in favor of the bill. Its a disgusting maneuver and shows how little respect he has for the 49 percent of students who voted against his party in the last election. To further demonstrate the point, after bill presentation, questions and three full rounds of pro-con debate (the maximum allowed without a motion to extend) youve exhausted a maximum of 28 minutes. If his party wants to vote in favor or against a bill, we cant stop them, but I would hope that he would at least have the respect to allow the representatives of the Student Body to speak on behalf of their constituents. The Unite Partys actions thus far into the summer session have been the exact opposite of their promises to increase communication and transparency. I just wish theyd have the decency to stop being so intellectually dishonest about their views and actually say they dont care about what anyone has to say. Max Stein Students Party SenatorLetter to the EditorRecent economic growth numbers are begging the question: are we getting out of the recession any time soon? The daunting question looms like a dark cloud over the heads of lawmakers and business owners who dont know what to expect from a lethargic economy. This uncertainty is stifling action in the private sector. A disappointing May jobs report pushed the unemployment rate back to 8.2 percent, and there is already extra doubt about the modest growth estimates for the second quarter. Historically, economic growth has been fastest after a downturn. In 1934, following the Great Depression, the U.S. economy grew an unprecedented 10.9 percent. However, since 2009, the average annual growth rate has been 2.4 percent, while the long-term trend in the U.S. has been 3.1 percent since 1948. So why do we still see sluggish growth? Among the many factors that influence the health of the economy, one reality is that the economy reacts to perception. If you dont believe youll have a job tomorrow, youre unlikely to buy a new house today. You will probably save your money instead. Likewise, a business apprehensive about prospective income is unlikely to spend money on new hires. Even with the Federal Reserve driving interest rates near zero, employers are reluctant to take risks with a lack of confidence in the recovery. Over the last several years, a wave of new policies and political events has given rise to uncertainty in the political and economic climate. The health care overhaul will implement sweeping changes for employers beginning in 2013. Recently, I was able to attend a presentation by Gary Ellis, the chief financial officer of Medtronic. He explained how the type of system adopted by the U.S. was less of a concern to them than figuring out the details of the bill. We operate in all health care systems of the world and turn a profit, he said. Were more concerned about figuring out exactly what is in this bill. The effect this bill will have remains hazy even for those closely watching it. Last year, the Bush-era tax cuts were extended, but only until Jan. 1, 2013. Without knowing whether the tax cut will be extended again, business owners are wary of commitments. The effect of a tax cut to stimulate hiring in the economy is diminished by its short-term nature. Last summer, Republicans and Democrats clashed over the debt ceiling until the 11th hour. This event was toxic for the markets, amplified fear over the ability to contain public debt and led to a credit downgrade for the government. Worst of all, a sequel may be right around the corner as the debt nears its ceiling again. The press favorite two words in 2010 were double dip, which has not helped quell the uncertainty. With incessant questioning of the U.S.s potential to relapse into recession to the current debt debacle of Europe, the financial press has been filled with fear. Lawmakers can help ameliorate this uncertainty. First, they must provide the business community with lasting solutions, not temporary fixes. They need to be efficient in making decisions and avoid drawn-out political battles. This is especially important for debate on the debt ceiling, as strong creditworthiness is crucial for the nations economy. Second, President Barack Obamas administration needs to work on the clarity of the health care overhaul and finish crafting the language of the recent reforms such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform bill. Businesses need to know what they are up against. Lastly, lawmakers should remember that real solutions often require politically tough decisions, and if the economy is doing well, the people will trust those tough decisions.

On the social networking and shopping website, Etsy, she is Silvertree999, armed with handmade jewelry and nature photographs taken with her mothers These personas are seemingly unrelated, but Melnichuk disagrees. Science and art really go hand in hand, she said. You have to be a creative person to do well in science. Melnichuk, who spent her teenage years in Brooklyn, N.Y., painted throughout high school. She was accepted to the School of Visual Arts, Savannah College of Art and Design and other well-known art schools, as well as waitlisted at Carnegie Mellon for physics. She kept her name on the waitlist thinking she wouldnt get in. I wouldnt have to make a decision, upset parents, et cetera, she said, and then I got in, and there was nothing I could say after that. Thus, her 11 years and counting of schooling began. Melnichuk attended the University of Hawaii after graduating from Carnegie Mellon with a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry. She received her masters in chemistry at Hawaii and came to UF in 2006. In Gainesville shes developed a creers and sunsets at Paynes Prairie. Jewelry making started for Melnichuk as an accident after her bracelet broke. At the bead store she had a thought; Oh, theres a lot of stuff here, this is kind of fun. So, she started buying, making things and taking classes. To Melnichuk, her art is a stress relief from her work with UFs Quantum Theory Project. Because of this, jewelry making and photography indirectly supplement her work in the same way that a hot shower or a few hours at the gym seem to generate the best ideas. If you think of something else, if you read a book thats not related to your work at all, at some point, just doing that clears your mind, she said. She put her work on Etsy in February and has had one sale so far from a very supportive aunt. Someone ordered this pendant, this pricey piece, and I didnt think it would ing. Melnichuk hopes to sell most of her jewelry stock by the time she leaves Gainesville next year. Even with her stack of chemistry degrees, she acknowledges art as an important part of her life. I always tell my students not to think of science as this dry thing, she said. If youre going to be good, you have to be creative. Otherwise, you really are a drone. To Kathryn Wilson, The Gator Nation knows no bounds. Wilson uses Etsy to display and sell her products online, her shop is called GatorMade. Her creations embody a home footry all orange and blue and also bring The Swamp spirit abroad in the form of pillows, scarves and signs. Its amazing, Wilson, a 1971 graduate of UF, said. I didnt even realize how global it could be until I put this stuff on Etsy. Wilsons creativity and love for the Gators became intertwined when she her time, she attended countless home football and basketball games, she said, and eventually graduated with a degree in interior design. After years of being an interior deWilson decided it was time to turn back to the things she loved most crafting and UF. I love being creative, and Im a lifelong Gator, she said. It just kicked me right in the pants that I need to start doing stuff I enjoy. After making enough products to expand, Wilson asked her son to make a website. Instead, he introduced her to Etsy. He told her it was easy to set up and use Wilson said. He was right, and she has been using it to spread orange and blue all over the world. Ive sent things to Kentucky, to California, to Japan, Wilson said. One of her products, a sign that says how many miles a particular place is from The Swamp, made it more than 7,000 miles to Germany. Social media is a wonderful thing when you can just talk to someone in Germany, and its not going to cost you anything, Wilson said. If Mabelin Castellanos was to read her name on a page, certain letters would pop from the black and white of ink and paper. She would see the as in red, the es in green, the is in yellow and the os in white. Castellanos has grapheme-color synesthesia. The part of her brain that processes words and numbers overlaps with the part of the brain that sees colors. The condition is common among artists, Castellanos said, which would explain the large collection of mixed media art and household knickknacks in her Etsy collection, TelArtes. Its a need I have, she said. It balances my mind. Castellanos is a scientist. After emigrating from Cuba in 1994, Castellanos came to work for UFs department of physiological sciences at a time when the university was the only school in Florida with a medical college. Castellanos believes art and science balance each other. Much of her work is quilt art. She creates a graphic tablet on the computer to print onto fabric, then sews on top of it with different colors and patterns. The scenes are inspired by everyday life. Thats just what I love, people and ambiance, she said. For a while, Castellanos was part of the Artisans Guild Gallery, a co-op for Gainesville artists, she also put up tables and stands at art shows and farmers markets all around Florida. Those became too time-consuming, so she joined Etsy in February. Since then, shes sold two key chains and a quilt art piece. The money is not really an issue, she said, but you like to show what you do in a way. She also enjoys browsing. Etsys great because you can see what other artists are doing, she said. Its even better as a buyer. With her synesthesia and scienceheavy job, Castellanos doesnt see art creation as a choice, but as a necessity. However, it is a welcome necessity. I have a need to see color and put it together, she said.

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 THE STORE IS GETTING ENERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS. SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue WriterWhat began as a passion for Native American customs expanded into a boutique in 2008, and now the expansion continues in order to serve the community of Gainesville. Otter and Trout Trading Co., located at 625 W University Ave., recently added another room to its store to make space for the growing collection of herbs, books, gems and unusual gifts, but the renovations arent over. Eric Dreaming Trout and Kimberli White Otter have teamed up with Trimark Properties to add energy efas an entire new look for the store, all while keeping its doors open. Otter said their main concern is networking with the community to create wellness on a global scale, but closing during construction would hinder these efforts. We want whatever the Gainesville people want, Trout said. Every Monday through Saturday, customers eagerly wait outside the door until it opens at 11 a.m. and continue to come and browse or seek holistic advice until the store closes at 7 p.m. Although the store is on University Avenue, its main customer base isnt necessarily UF students. Otter said they get all different walks of life visiting the store and most of them discover it through word-ofmouth or from curiosity of the trinkets they spot through the window. I think we stay busy because people are realizing the importance of getting in touch with their ancient roots, Otter said. More people are interested in trying herbal remedies, opposed to chemical and pharmaceutical treatments. Otter gained her knowledge of herbs through a near-death experience from a car accident in 1996. I came back with some gifts I couldnt really explain, she said. I didnt know how I knew what I knew but it just became intuitive to me. She met Trout in 1997, and they combined interests to create a business selling their herbal concoctions out of a tent at Native American powwows. Trout noticed how many people turned to Otter with their ailments, and he encouraged her to open their own store. Otter was already working as a when the space became available, they decided it was where they were going to stay. ing open, the pair plan on continuing to grow, improve and contribute a global healing. Their goals for the future are to provide a self-sustaining, multicultur al, interspiritual center for alternative healing situated on ample property with lush foliage, live oaks and running water, medicinal and meditation gardens, healing, drum circles, workshops and nature walks. The pair believe if they continue to serve the Gainesville community, then the customer support will help make this vision a reality.

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Playoffs?! Were talkin about the playoffs!The BCS commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick agreed on a seeded, four-team college football playoff Wednesday. The new model, which would go into effect in 2014, will be reviewed June 26.This [expletive] will not end nowDespite former Gator Percy Harvins trade request, Minnesota GM Rick Spielman has refused to part ways with the All-Pro wide receiver. UF FINISHED 0-2 IN OMAHA. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Last week, Brian Johnson was not thinking about life after Omaha. You avoid it by you want to win a national championship, he said last Tuesday. The whole team has worked so hard, and youve got goals to accomplish before you have the next one. Now, Johnson and eight of his teammates will likely move on to professional baseball. They leave Florida with three straight College World Series appearances, but no national championship. It hasnt sunk in yet, Preston Tucker said. Six days ago, the top-ranked Gators had just arrived in Omaha with the ultimate prize in sight. As the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA straight games to sweep both the NCAA Regional and the Super Regional. However, the Gators demise in Omaha was surprisingly quick. Florida opened the College World Series against two-time defending national champion South Carolina on Saturday with Johnson on the mound. Johnson had a 2.40 ERA in two of the Gators three wins in four tries against the Gamecocks this season. But shutting down South Carolina for a third time proved too tall of an order for Johnson, who lasted just four-plus innings and surrendered The Gamecocks offensive outburst occurred right after a mound visit from OSullivan. South Carolina had loaded the bases with no outs, but OSullivan decided to leave Johnson in the game. We had a two-run lead, OSullivan said. Once again, youve just got to tip your cap. I thought they had some really good at-bats that inning, obviously. Facing elimination against Kent State, Florida sent ace Hudson Randall to the mound Monday. HowevGators after a rain-plagued Super Regional victory against N.C. State. 104 degrees according to ESPN and forced UF coach Kevin OSullivan to pull an overheated Randall, and errors took care of the rest. Randall and Jonathon Crawford, who pitched three innings of relief, gave up four combined unearned runs We made a couple errors in the ized, OSullivan said. That was the difference in the ball game. Errors, heat and a historic postseason winning streak aside, the common thread in both Florida losses came down to untimely hitting. The Gators stranded 21 runners on Florida coping with abrupt end to College World Series runQuotableThats a clown question, bro. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) in response to a reporter Wednesday AP Photo SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 20THE RALLY Joe: Rewind to January 1, 2012. The ball has dropped in New York City, and Im drinking champagne out of a plastic wine glass. A fortune teller decked out in purple robes with a crystal ball saunters over and tells me the Gators will win three national year and that John Carter would be the boxgest Andrew Stanton fanboy, I would weep bitterly. Right after that, I would have traveled to Las Vegas and bet every dime in my pocket that Kevin OSullivans squad would win the 2012 College World Series. Fast-forward six months, and Im glad my little anecdote is just a hypothetical. In easily the most disappointing development in UF sports this season, the top-ranked Gators baseball team was two-and-out in Omaha. Florida was the second team eliminated from the CWS this year despite losing just two starters and boasting an overachieving freshman class. After three straight fruitless trips to Omaha, the biggest championship window in UF baseball history slammed shut with a resounding thud Monday. Corey: sucked in the CWS this year, but to say it was the most disappointing result this season queue Chris Carter Cmon, man! I know its hard to remember that one weekend back seeded Gators softball team to be eliminated from the postseason. Not only did they fail to advance to the Womens College World Secouldnt even win their NCAA Regional, a feat not seen in Gainesville since Chris Leak Bigger disappointment: Baseball, softball or John Carter?

This year Barbiasz wants in. I saw all the commercials leading up to the 2008 Olympics, but I was a senior in high school then, Barbiasz said. I would say, Im going to make it to the next one, and thats what Ive been trying to do since then. Over the next 11 days, Barbiasz and 14 current and former Gators will be competing at the Olympic Trials for a spot on Team USA for the 2012 Olympic Games. This is the largest championship track meet in the world, with more than 1,000 athletes competing for 102 spots. Despite the large number of competitors, Barbiasz, who is coming off a win at the Southeastern Conference in triple jump and a record breaking performance at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, is staying relaxed.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 Thompson receives medical redshirt, will return in 2013base in Omaha, and they tallied just two runs in four bases-loaded opportunities. Weve had plenty of opportunities and the other team has played better, its as simple as that, OSullivan said. Im the other as why we lost. Moving on to next season, a depleted Florida roster will look to some of this seasons key underclassmen for leader ship and production. Rising sophomores Casey Turgeon, Justin Shafer and Josh Tobias were all key cogs in the Gators lineup down the stretch this season. Taylor Gushue will Zunino behind the plate. Upcoming juniors Jonathon Crawford and Karsten Whitson will top a formidable starting rotation assuming Crawford builds on his late-season progress and Whitson pitches like he did during his freshman campaign in 2011. UF also anticipates the return of selineup in 2013. Thompson, who was batting .319 through 16 games this season, received a medical redshirt after suffering an ACL tear in his right knee against Vanderbilt on March 16. Regardless of what Florida accomplishes moving forward, the Gators crop of upperclassmen notched three consecutive College World Series appearances in arguably the most successful run in UF baseball history. Their feat will be inat McKethan Stadium. Theyve set a standard that following teams will have to live up to, OSullivan said. The last three years mark the best results achieved by any Florida baseball team. Despite their recent run, the Gators have yet to win a national title. Its going to take a while to hit me, Zunino said. Im sure it hit the other people. But its disappointing at the time. Im sure it will hit harder later. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@ alligator.org.
