Editor Clare Lennon Managing Editor Erin Jester Alligator Thursday, July 26, 2012 On Feb. 1, 1973, the Alligator was cut from the UF campus In 1912 Florida Alligator became later it published photographs for the added in 1915. During the Great Depression, the Alligator published an annual Gripe and Grievance Edition, in which students could complain about campus problems.

Natalie Teer / Alligator Staff 1910-1950 1960s 1970s 1980s David Carr/Alligator StaffShow Your ColorsA signature orange news rack holding copies of The Independent Florida Alligator stands next to university-owned modular racks at Weimer Hall, which houses the College of Journalism and Communications. In my time as a student leader at UF, I saw first hand how critical it is for the student body to have a dedicated student newspaper. In this era of budget cuts and tuition increases, it is vital that the student body remain informed and engaged. While I have at times taken issue with the Alligator, it has done a tremendous service to the student body and should be permitted to continue unabated. I have no doubt that the administrations push towards modular units is in good faith, having discussed it with many administrators at the projects inception. However, I disagree with the current approach as I believe the Alligator is unique and must be treated singularly from the other newspapers which will occupy the modular units. Many of these other newspapers are nationally circulated, with no specific focus on our university. Others are not regularly printed. The Alligator is the only daily newspaper focused solely on the UF Student Body. The licensing fee to be placed on the Alligator is particularly troublesome. The Alligator is free for every student and thus consistently has difficulty getting out of the red. I would speculate that such a fee would be a major burden on the paper, which is completely student produced, in a way that would not affect heavyweights such as the New York Times or USA Today or even the Gainesville Sun. In addition, the modular units will not be placed nearly as ubiquitously as the Alligators orange racks are currently. This would reduce student access to the student newspaper, something I believe most students would object to. The Alligator has been a treasure of our Student Body since the time my grandfather attended UF. I believe every consideration must be made to ensure the Alligator remains a student-run student newspaper that is accessible to every student and able to remain financially afloat. I stand for saving the racks. Ben Meyers Former Student Body PresidentFormer Student Body President supports saving the racks, keeping a treasure of UF Student Body UNIVERSITYAlligator staff addresses UF presidents response to councils request to reconsiderDear Anne and Journalism Department Advisory Council, Thank you for taking the time to write to me about the Independent Florida Alligator. First, let me say that we appreciate the Alligator and want it to succeed. It is an excellent news source for our students and training ground for those studying journalism. Even in this time of major budget reductions, we have continued our long-standing support of the paper through regular advertising, which currently totals nearly $28,000 a year. Our goal in moving toward modular newspaper racks is to enhance safety and aesthetics. When we started this initiative, there were 407 newspaper racks on campus containing 26 different publications. During hurricane season, these racks pose a serious hazard. It is not uncommon to remove racks from city streets as a storm approaches. By installing modular racks, the university will not be faced with the time-consuming task of monitoring which publishers have picked up their racks and which havent, thereby requiring university personnel to remove the potential projectiles. The new racks are also more attractive and are less visually intrusive in the historic part of campus where they have been installed. When we started this process in 2010, all 20 of the publishers except the Alligator agreed to make the switch. That includes other free publications. In response to the Alligators concerns, we have met repeatedly with them and have delayed the full implementation of the conversion to the modular units by almost three years. We have also made changes in our plans. For example, when the Alligators representatives said they were concerned students wouldnt know to look for the Alligator in the modular units, we offered to let them put the Alligators distinctive logo and orange color on the modular units. You should also know that we are not seeking to replace all of the Alligators racks. Half of their inventory of racks on campus approximately 40 will remain where they are. Thank you for writing. I hope this answers some of your questions and concerns. BernieIn a response to a letter from the Journalism Department Advisory Council, UF President Bernie Machen made a few claims about the current situation tion. President Machens letter can be read to the left. Here is our response to his claims: University advertising has dropped over the years. Machens letter implies that we have not offered to comply with whatever standards are necessary to secure our racks. We have offered to secure or weigh down our racks before a storm. He argues that during hurricane season, university personnel are faced with the daunting and time-consuming task of removing these racks for safety reasons. We have offered to remove the racks ourselves. He fails to mention that not all the other publications on campus have received the licensing agreement sent to the Alligator. He argues that the orange racks are visually intrusive in the historic part of campus. These racks have been on campus for decades, are well-maintaned and display the schools colors. How are they not an historic icon for UFs campus? Eighty-two percent of our papers are delivered in this historic district. While it is true that after Aug. 15, we will have close to 40 racks remaining on campus, if the univer sity moves ahead with its future removal plans, we will have only 30 left. Most of the Alligator racks the univer The logo the university offered to allow in the modular racks is thinner than the average bumper sticker. Frankly, President Machens response fails to answer the question of why the university feels so adamant about removing the racks. Alligator StaffThis column appeared Friday in The Miami Herald.Sometimes, the threats to media freedoms arent blatant and up front, but theyre no less dangerous. They take the guise of regulation, behind-the-scenes intimidation, and in the latest case in our state, in a housekeeping directive by the administration of the University of Florida that the signature orange newspaper racks carrying The Independent Florida Alligator on campus be removed. The Alligators dedicated racks, accented by blue-lettered adhesives with the newspapers name, have been as much a part of campus life in Gator Nation as the brick buildings. The storied newspaper founded in 1906 and housed on and off campus through various incarnations became independent in 1973, after years of attempts by the UF administration to censor its content. It is widely respected as a practicum for student journalists who cover UF life and the city of Gainesville, and often wins top national awards. It is inconceivable that a university that houses one of the top journalism programs in the nation would want to curtail students easy access to the student-run newspaper. But after a century of the papers circulating freely on campus the last 30 years in the distinctive orange racks the administration now finds the racks aesthetically offensive and unsafe, and has demanded The Alligator remove them by Aug. 15. The racks are our branding, says Ed Barber, president emeritus of the newspaper and executive director of the Alligator Alumni Association. We have to grab peoples attention and say, Here we are. The laughable range of reasons cited for their removal that students might trip over them (not even in my time at UF, when the legal drinking age was 18 and alcohol was widely consumed on campus, was this an issue) and that they could become projectiles in a storm (as if there havent been storms before in Florida the past three decades and no chains strong enough at Home Depot to secure racks) are suspect. As is the proposed alternative: UF wants to replace the current visible racks with bland, modular black racks for which the university would charge a fee to The Alligator and other publications that would rotate using them. What is really behind this attempt to undermine the student newspaper and tax what is essentially a public service? Is it a crass attempt to collect more fees, or something larger and more sinister and apt to the times? Those of us familiar with the shenanigans of governance and campus affairs (I wrote for the Alligator during the late 70s) know that history indicates that the real cause for annoyance to the powers that be is studentjournalist scrutiny. This isnt a safety issue, and certainly UFs orange-and-blue colors arent suddenly out of fashion in campus decor. Its at best a display of insensitivity to the value of a newspaper that shouldnt be treated like a giveaway shopper. Special interests would like nothing more than to weaken the media. But a universitys administration and board of trustees should take positions that strengthen democracy, not erode it, even if its only by a count of 19 orange newspaper racks.

THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 TJ JACKSON WILL FILL THE ROLE. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES A judge on Wednesday intervened in the turmoil roiling the Jackson family, appointing the son of Tito Jackson to serve as temporary guardian of Michael Jacksons children in the absence of the family matriarch and in the midst a feud over the pop superstars estate. Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff temporarily suspended Katherine Jackson as the childrens guardian because she was in Arizona and hadnt spoken with them in several days. He appointed Tito Joe TJ Jackson to serve as temporary guardian with the ability to control the hilltop home where the children live and to take on other supervision duties. Beckloff said there was no evidence that Katherine Jackson had done anything wrong but instead it appeared she was being prevented ian through the intentional acts of third parties. He didnt elaborate but made the decision after reading pressed concern that Katherine Jackson was being prevented from returning. He cited a Monday incident in which Janet, Randy and Jermaine Jackson arrived at the childrens home and told them they could speak with their grandmother but had to leave with them. This was odd and disturbing to me and (the children) and heightened our concern that our grandmother was being prohibited from returning home, TJ Jackson wrote in a sworn statement. Beckloff listened as attorneys described Katherine Jacksons demeanor as unusual on phone calls placed to the children hours before the hearing. TJ Jacksons attorney Charles that the children were forced to miss school Wednesday because of concerns about their security. Shultz a.m. a new security team arrived at the Jackson home in suburban Calabasas claiming they had been authorized by Katherine Jackson to take charge. He wrote that the guards asked about the childrens school. That last inquiry caused the head of security to be concerned and he advised that (the children) stay home from school on Wednesday. Beckloff ruled the Jackson children could not leave California without court approval.Judge appoints temporary guardian for Jackson childrenJackson

Flashbacks Lounge hosting listening party passion pit KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterWhen Lia-Lucine Cary was a child, her grandfather taught her a valuable lesson that educating oneself is the most important thing one can do. Today as a middle school teacher in Hawaii, Cary teaches that lesson to her students who are raised in a culture that doesnt encourage college as an option. Its just not something that is in the everyday vocabulary, Cary wrote in an email. To bring college into the vocabulary, the 24-year-old UF classics and anthropology graduate started requesting that students and alumni from colleges across the nation send in letters or college paraphernalia to share with her seventh-grade students. She plans to inform her students of college possibilities in a place where only 65 out of 100 freshmen will graduate high school, and of those, 34 will attend college, according to an article in Honolulu Magazine, she wrote. Cary started teaching after college while living with her grandparents in Istanbul, Tur key. She worked at a refugee camp where illegal residents children were educated I started feeling really desperate for these kids and worrying about their futures, Cary about myself. With this new perspective, she returned to the United States. In the email she expressed that like Turkey, many educational opportunities depend on socio-economic status. It was like a veil had been lifted from my eyes, she wrote. I started realizing that the situation was not so different in my own country. Cary now teaches at Kealakehe Intermediate School in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, an experience that she says has revealed the value of teaching for her. This work, although literally endless, was one of the most meaningful things I have ever done in my life, she wrote. I mean, this is our future we are talking about. Since her time in Hawaii, Cary has noticed cultural trends that might contribute to the lack of college emphasis. Because of the illegal annexation of Hawaii, many Hawaiians dont view themselves as American, but as Hawaiian, Cary wrote. This creates resentment for the cultural norms of the mainland, like going to college. There also seems to be an emphasis on teaching for state-issued tests, like the FCAT, which determine a schools funds rather than long-term goals, an issue that exists all over See the rest of the story online at http://www. alligator.org/the_avenue/Alumnae encourages college experience to Hawaiian students THE NEW LOCATION WILL HAVE MORE SPACE SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue Writer a store the size of a single-car garage, the owner turns sideways, squeezes by, grabs the requested pair of TOMS shoes and sighs in relief. Soon he will have the space he needs. Gifthorse is in its last week at 101 N. Main St. and is moving to a location at 201 SE Second Ave. in mid-August. Cesar Antonio Evans, 29-year-old artist and owner of Gifthorse has contributed to Gainesvilles art and fashion scene since 2008. When Evans was accepted to UFs art program he declined, he wanted to be involved in something more public and socially interactive rather than be trapped in a studio. As the economy began to crash, Evans bounced from job to job and noticed the good response he received from his art shows. I was a mediocre barista, and I felt boxed in, he said. I knew it was a huge leap, but I wanted to do something I loved and was good at and that had the chance to grow. Thats when Evans opene Bertos in downtown Gainesvilles Sun Center. Bertos sold his paintings and T-shirts he designed. It quickly expanded and Evans collaborated with other artists, which led to the formation of a new venture, The Exchange, which was located at 815 W. University Ave. After a year and a half it was time for change. The move from University Avenue to Main Street happened because Evans followed a dream, literally. He dreamt that the storefront of The Exchange was obstructed. In this nightmare he could get past heavy construction to the door. He said this triggered the idea of being stuck, and Evans immediately signed a lease and opened Gifthorse. The two-story corner building initially held apparel on its Now that Evans collection has expanded with brands such as TOMS, Alternative Apparel as a studio. He doesnt have art for sale but plans on introducing paintings to the new location. In addition to more space, the new location is near Maudes Classic Cafe, Sarkara Sweets and other boutiques that attract Gifthorses ideal customer.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/askMaegan Dennis / Alligator Staff Dear Mediocre Advice, I have a huge house to myself with an epic pool for the next two weeks. How do I get ladies in bikinis to come over? Dear bro, Advertise it everywhere and say there will be booze (and actually supply some). If you have friends who are girls, spread the word through them, and ask them to bring more girls. You have to be OK with the fact that a few sausages may show up. Dear Mediocre Advice, I like this girl who has a boyfriend, but he treats her like crap. What should I do? Dear troubled dude friend, First, recognize the difference between your crush and her actually having a bad boyfriend. If her boyfriend really is a jerk, then tell her! Just dont tell her you like her after. The result will not go in your favor, and you will look like a douche. Also, people love to complain. If you have been chosen as the designated relationship-complaints bro, it might not be a dont know the exact situation, but if you really fear she is being abused or this guy is harmful to her, you have to tell her and give credible examples. Dear Mediocre Advice, What should you do if you break up with this guy, but then he asks your friends about you on Facebook all the time, then he shows up at your dorm at 3 a.m. really drunk and cries and throws up in your bushes? Dear friend, Poor guy ... let him drown in his emotions and vomit. Dear Mediocre Advice, the feeling is mutual? youre in. If he doesnt, hes either not interested, seeing someone else or gay (or straight depending on what gender you are). Hes hanging out with you, so he must like something about you. Go you! You could also get really drunk together and see if he makes out with you. That usually works. Dear Mediocre Advice, My roommate never picks up after herself and always gives excuses as to why not. Shes pre-law and good at verbal manipulation, and after herself? Dear friend, You should weigh how annoyed you are with her habits against how much you are willing to confront her. If you do confront her, call her out when she tries to be her if you have any roommate habits that bother her. Whatever you do, dont leave notes around the house about it because that will make it worse (and its annoying). Be cool and calm when you explain your concern to her, and if shes a good roommate worth re-signing a lease with, shell understand. Keep in mind that habits are tough to break. So if she doesnt immediately pick up all her crap, dont assume youve lost the battle. If she still isnt picking up after herself weeks later and it mate youre more compatible with.

to-head battle would feature two of the greatest coaching minds in modern sports history. In a word, it would be historic. Now that I have had my fun with the sports world at large, here are some Gators matchups that came to mind and sounded pretty awesome: Lauren Embree vs. Kristy Jaeckel There would be teams kills leader and arguably the best player in womens collegiate tennis. This would require the ball to magically transform from a volleyball to a tennis ball and vice versa every time it crossed the net, but Ill allow it. This is all wild fantasy anyway. Kitty Cullen vs. Mike Zunino No player has put more balls past goalies in the three-year history of the Gators lacrosse program than Cullen. Put a lacrosse net behind home plate, give Zunino a bat and tell the AllAmerican slugger to swing away. Jordan Reed vs. Will Yeguete Perhaps the biggest revelation for coach Billy Donovans team last season was the emergence of Yeguete as a defensive force. who will serve as a nice, big target for whomever lines some sort of weird basketball-football crossover, and let the games begin. My last fantasy matchup has nothing to do with sports, but just humor me here. It would be epic. Batman vs. James Bond This would be the showdown to end all showdowns. If I ever got to witness this battle of state-of-the-art gadgetry and cunning wit, nothing else would ever entertain me again. The sheer awesomeness of a Batman-Bond brawl would leave mere mortals like you and me shaken not stirred. While I have declined to give my take on the previous matchups listed, I cannot hold my tongue when it comes to this classic clash. In the end, I believe the Dark Knight rises.

In my time as a student leader at UF, I saw first hand how critical it is for the student body to have a dedicated student newspaper. In this era of budget cuts and tuition increases, it is vital that the student body remain informed and engaged. While I have at times taken issue with the Alligator, it has done a tremendous service to the student body and should be permitted to continue unabated. I have no doubt that the administrations push towards modular units is in good faith, having discussed it with many administrators at the projects inception. However, I disagree with the current approach as I believe the Alligator is unique and must be treated singularly from the other newspapers which will occupy the modular units. Many of these other newspapers are nationally circulated, with no specific focus on our university. Others are not regularly printed. The Alligator is the only daily newspaper focused solely on the UF Student Body. The licensing fee to be placed on the Alligator is particularly troublesome. The Alligator is free for every student and thus consistently has difficulty getting out of the red. I would speculate that such a fee would be a major burden on the paper, which is completely student produced, in a way that would not affect heavyweights such as the New York Times or USA Today or even the Gainesville Sun. In addition, the modular units will not be placed nearly as ubiquitously as the Alligators orange racks are currently. This would reduce student access to the student newspaper, something I believe most students would object to. The Alligator has been a treasure of our Student Body since the time my grandfather attended UF. I believe every consideration must be made to ensure the Alligator remains a student-run student newspaper that is accessible to every student and able to remain financially afloat. I stand for saving the racks. Ben Meyers Former Student Body PresidentFormer Student Body President supports saving the racks, keeping a treasure of UF Student Body UNIVERSITYAlligator staff addresses UF presidents response to councils request to reconsiderDear Anne and Journalism Department Advisory Council, Thank you for taking the time to write to me about the Independent Florida Alligator. First, let me say that we appreciate the Alligator and want it to succeed. It is an excellent news source for our students and training ground for those studying journalism. Even in this time of major budget reductions, we have continued our long-standing support of the paper through regular advertising, which currently totals nearly $28,000 a year. Our goal in moving toward modular newspaper racks is to enhance safety and aesthetics. When we started this initiative, there were 407 newspaper racks on campus containing 26 different publications. During hurricane season, these racks pose a serious hazard. It is not uncommon to remove racks from city streets as a storm approaches. By installing modular racks, the university will not be faced with the time-consuming task of monitoring which publishers have picked up their racks and which havent, thereby requiring university personnel to remove the potential projectiles. The new racks are also more attractive and are less visually intrusive in the historic part of campus where they have been installed. When we started this process in 2010, all 20 of the publishers except the Alligator agreed to make the switch. That includes other free publications. In response to the Alligators concerns, we have met repeatedly with them and have delayed the full implementation of the conversion to the modular units by almost three years. We have also made changes in our plans. For example, when the Alligators representatives said they were concerned students wouldnt know to look for the Alligator in the modular units, we offered to let them put the Alligators distinctive logo and orange color on the modular units. You should also know that we are not seeking to replace all of the Alligators racks. Half of their inventory of racks on campus approximately 40 will remain where they are. Thank you for writing. I hope this answers some of your questions and concerns. BernieIn a response to a letter from the Journalism Department Advisory Council, UF President Bernie Machen made a few claims about the current situation tion. President Machens letter can be read to the left. Here is our response to his claims: University advertising has dropped over the years. Machens letter implies that we have not offered to comply with whatever standards are necessary to secure our racks. We have offered to secure or weigh down our racks before a storm. He argues that during hurricane season, university personnel are faced with the daunting and time-consuming task of removing these racks for safety reasons. We have offered to remove the racks ourselves. He fails to mention that not all the other publications on campus have received the licensing agreement sent to the Alligator. He argues that the orange racks are visually intrusive in the historic part of campus. These racks have been on campus for decades, are well-maintaned and display the schools colors. How are they not an historic icon for UFs campus? Eighty-two percent of our papers are delivered in this historic district. While it is true that after Aug. 15, we will have close to 40 racks remaining on campus, if the univer sity moves ahead with its future removal plans, we will have only 30 left. Most of the Alligator racks the univer The logo the university offered to allow in the modular racks is thinner than the average bumper sticker. Frankly, President Machens response fails to answer the question of why the university feels so adamant about removing the racks. Alligator StaffThis column appeared Friday in The Miami Herald.Sometimes, the threats to media freedoms arent blatant and up front, but theyre no less dangerous. They take the guise of regulation, behind-the-scenes intimidation, and in the latest case in our state, in a housekeeping directive by the administration of the University of Florida that the signature orange newspaper racks carrying The Independent Florida Alligator on campus be removed. The Alligators dedicated racks, accented by blue-lettered adhesives with the newspapers name, have been as much a part of campus life in Gator Nation as the brick buildings. The storied newspaper founded in 1906 and housed on and off campus through various incarnations became independent in 1973, after years of attempts by the UF administration to censor its content. It is widely respected as a practicum for student journalists who cover UF life and the city of Gainesville, and often wins top national awards. It is inconceivable that a university that houses one of the top journalism programs in the nation would want to curtail students easy access to the student-run newspaper. But after a century of the papers circulating freely on campus the last 30 years in the distinctive orange racks the administration now finds the racks aesthetically offensive and unsafe, and has demanded The Alligator remove them by Aug. 15. The racks are our branding, says Ed Barber, president emeritus of the newspaper and executive director of the Alligator Alumni Association. We have to grab peoples attention and say, Here we are. The laughable range of reasons cited for their removal that students might trip over them (not even in my time at UF, when the legal drinking age was 18 and alcohol was widely consumed on campus, was this an issue) and that they could become projectiles in a storm (as if there havent been storms before in Florida the past three decades and no chains strong enough at Home Depot to secure racks) are suspect. As is the proposed alternative: UF wants to replace the current visible racks with bland, modular black racks for which the university would charge a fee to The Alligator and other publications that would rotate using them. What is really behind this attempt to undermine the student newspaper and tax what is essentially a public service? Is it a crass attempt to collect more fees, or something larger and more sinister and apt to the times? Those of us familiar with the shenanigans of governance and campus affairs (I wrote for the Alligator during the late 70s) know that history indicates that the real cause for annoyance to the powers that be is studentjournalist scrutiny. This isnt a safety issue, and certainly UFs orange-and-blue colors arent suddenly out of fashion in campus decor. Its at best a display of insensitivity to the value of a newspaper that shouldnt be treated like a giveaway shopper. Special interests would like nothing more than to weaken the media. But a universitys administration and board of trustees should take positions that strengthen democracy, not erode it, even if its only by a count of 19 orange newspaper racks.

THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 TJ JACKSON WILL FILL THE ROLE. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES A judge on Wednesday intervened in the turmoil roiling the Jackson family, appointing the son of Tito Jackson to serve as temporary guardian of Michael Jacksons children in the absence of the family matriarch and in the midst a feud over the pop superstars estate. Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff temporarily suspended Katherine Jackson as the childrens guardian because she was in Arizona and hadnt spoken with them in several days. He appointed Tito Joe TJ Jackson to serve as temporary guardian with the ability to control the hilltop home where the children live and to take on other supervision duties. Beckloff said there was no evidence that Katherine Jackson had done anything wrong but instead it appeared she was being prevented ian through the intentional acts of third parties. He didnt elaborate but made the decision after reading pressed concern that Katherine Jackson was being prevented from returning. He cited a Monday incident in which Janet, Randy and Jermaine Jackson arrived at the childrens home and told them they could speak with their grandmother but had to leave with them. This was odd and disturbing to me and (the children) and heightened our concern that our grandmother was being prohibited from returning home, TJ Jackson wrote in a sworn statement. Beckloff listened as attorneys described Katherine Jacksons demeanor as unusual on phone calls placed to the children hours before the hearing. TJ Jacksons attorney Charles that the children were forced to miss school Wednesday because of concerns about their security. Shultz a.m. a new security team arrived at the Jackson home in suburban Calabasas claiming they had been authorized by Katherine Jackson to take charge. He wrote that the guards asked about the childrens school. That last inquiry caused the head of security to be concerned and he advised that (the children) stay home from school on Wednesday. Beckloff ruled the Jackson children could not leave California without court approval.Judge appoints temporary guardian for Jackson childrenJackson

Today as a middle school teacher in Hawaii, Cary teaches that lesson to her students who are raised in a culture that doesnt encourage college as an option. Its just not something that is in the everyday vocabulary, Cary wrote in an email. To bring college into the vocabulary, the 24-year-old UF classics and anthropology graduate started requesting that students and alumni from colleges across the nation send in letters or college paraphernalia to share with her seventh-grade students. She plans to inform her students of college possibilities in a place where only 65 out of 100 freshmen will graduate high school, and of those, 34 will attend college, according to an article in Honolulu Magazine, she wrote. Cary started teaching after college while living with her grandparents in Istanbul, Tur key. She worked at a refugee camp where illegal residents children were educated I started feeling really desperate for these kids and worrying about their futures, Cary about myself. With this new perspective, she returned to the United States. In the email she expressed that like Turkey, many educational opportunities depend on socio-economic status. It was like a veil had been lifted from my eyes, she wrote. I started realizing that the situation was not so different in my own country. Cary now teaches at Kealakehe Intermediate School in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, an experience that she says has revealed the value of teaching for her. This work, although literally endless, was one of the most meaningful things I have ever done in my life, she wrote. I mean, this is our future we are talking about. Since her time in Hawaii, Cary has noticed cultural trends that might contribute to the lack of college emphasis. Because of the illegal annexation of Hawaii, many Hawaiians dont view themselves as American, but as Hawaiian, Cary wrote. This creates resentment for the cultural norms of the mainland, like going to college. There also seems to be an emphasis on teaching for state-issued tests, like the FCAT, which determine a schools funds rather than long-term goals, an issue that exists all over See the rest of the story online at http://www. alligator.org/the_avenue/Alumnae encourages college experience to Hawaiian students THE NEW LOCATION WILL HAVE MORE SPACE SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue Writer a store the size of a single-car garage, the owner turns sideways, squeezes by, grabs the requested pair of TOMS shoes and sighs in relief. Soon he will have the space he needs. Gifthorse is in its last week at 101 N. Main St. and is moving to a location at 201 SE Second Ave. in mid-August. Cesar Antonio Evans, 29-year-old artist and owner of Gifthorse has contributed to Gainesvilles art and fashion scene since 2008. When Evans was accepted to UFs art program he declined, he wanted to be involved in something more public and socially interactive rather than be trapped in a studio. As the economy began to crash, Evans bounced from job to job and noticed the good response he received from his art shows. I was a mediocre barista, and I felt boxed in, he said. I knew it was a huge leap, but I wanted to do something I loved and was good at and that had the chance to grow. Thats when Evans opene Bertos in downtown Gainesvilles Sun Center. Bertos sold his paintings and T-shirts he designed. It quickly expanded and Evans collaborated with other artists, which led to the formation of a new venture, The Exchange, which was located at 815 W. University Ave. After a year and a half it was time for change. The move from University Avenue to Main Street happened because Evans followed a dream, literally. He dreamt that the storefront of The Exchange was obstructed. In this nightmare he could get past heavy construction to the door. He said this triggered the idea of being stuck, and Evans immediately signed a lease and opened Gifthorse. The two-story corner building initially held apparel on its Now that Evans collection has expanded with brands such as TOMS, Alternative Apparel as a studio.

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/askMaegan Dennis / Alligator Staff Dear Mediocre Advice, I have a huge house to myself with an epic pool for the next two weeks. How do I get ladies in bikinis to come over? Dear bro, Advertise it everywhere and say there will be booze (and actually supply some). If you have friends who are girls, spread the word through them, and ask them to bring more girls. You have to be OK with the fact that a few sausages may show up. Dear Mediocre Advice, I like this girl who has a boyfriend, but he treats her like crap. What should I do? Dear troubled dude friend, First, recognize the difference between your crush and her actually having a bad boyfriend. If her boyfriend really is a jerk, then tell her! Just dont tell her you like her after. The result will not go in your favor, and you will look like a douche. Also, people love to complain. If you have been chosen as the designated relationship-complaints bro, it might not be a dont know the exact situation, but if you really fear she is being abused or this guy is harmful to her, you have to tell her and give credible examples. Dear Mediocre Advice, What should you do if you break up with this guy, but then he asks your friends about you on Facebook all the time, then he shows up at your dorm at 3 a.m. really drunk and cries and throws up in your bushes? Dear friend, Poor guy ... let him drown in his emotions and vomit. Dear Mediocre Advice, the feeling is mutual? youre in. If he doesnt, hes either not interested, seeing someone else or gay (or straight depending on what gender you are). Hes hanging out with you, so he must like something about you. Go you! You could also get really drunk together and see if he makes out with you. That usually works. Dear Mediocre Advice, My roommate never picks up after herself and always gives excuses as to why not. Shes pre-law and good at verbal manipulation, and after herself? Dear friend, You should weigh how annoyed you are with her habits against how much you are willing to confront her. If you do confront her, call her out when she tries to be her if you have any roommate habits that bother her. Whatever you do, dont leave notes around the house about it because that will make it worse (and its annoying). Be cool and calm when you explain your concern to her, and if shes a good roommate worth re-signing a lease with, shell understand. Keep in mind that habits are tough to break. So if she doesnt immediately pick up all her crap, dont assume youve lost the battle. If she still isnt picking up after herself weeks later and it mate youre more compatible with.

to-head battle would feature two of the greatest coaching minds in modern sports history. In a word, it would be historic. Now that I have had my fun with the sports world at large, here are some Gators matchups that came to mind and sounded pretty awesome: Lauren Embree vs. Kristy Jaeckel There would be teams kills leader and arguably the best player in womens collegiate tennis.

Kitty Cullen vs. Mike Zunino No player has put more balls past goalies in the three-year history of the Gators lacrosse program than Cullen. Put a lacrosse net behind home plate, give Zunino a bat and tell the AllAmerican slugger to swing away.

While I have declined to give my take on the previous matchups listed, I cannot hold my tongue when it comes to this classic clash. In the end, I believe the Dark Knight rises.
