That was the question asked by volunteer surveyors Tuesday during the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungrys annual Point-in-Time homelessness census. From 4 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday, volunteers collected personal information from homeless people around the North Central Florida region, according to a coalition press release. Nate Phillips, 40, was one of the about 200 volunteers trained to work the survey. This was his second year participating. Phillips said he has been homeless for about two years by choice. He surveyed fewer people Tuesday than he Survey counts homeless residents KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterUF has increased emphasis on drawing ing and math majors into the teaching ranks. The most recent incentive, announced Monday, is a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation for STEM EduGators. The NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program funds students with STEM majors who pursue a teaching credential and commit to teaching at least two years in highneeds public school districts, according to a university press release. The appeal of the Noyce scholarships should recruit and retain more STEM maknowledge necessary to make an impact in high-needs school districts, Dimple Flesner, the co-principal investigator of STEM EduGators, wrote in an email. Throughout the next effort will award scholarships worth $10,000 each to 50 undergraduate students enrolled in UFTeach, which recruits the universitys best students to teaching through supervised classroom experiences in high-poverty schools. I think that the scholarship program is just another example of how UF is beating the state in education, said Tom Dana, the principal investigator of STEM EduGators. The UFTeach program, for graduating seniors, is based on a collaboration between the colleges of education and liberal arts and sciences. attention, Flesner said.

Last year, he volunteered for eight hours. He said he chose to help again because he could use a couple bucks. Theresa Lowe, director of the Homelessness, said the surveyors were paid $10 an hour. Locally, volunteers conducted surveys at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, St. Francis House and Tent City, a homeless camp in southeast Gainesville, Lowe said. They also canvassed through wooded areas where small pockets of people may have been living. Some of those areas are secluded in a way that people walk by them every day and dont notice people live there, she said. The survey is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in order to determine the coalitions funding needs, Lowe said. It also documents the status of homelessness for local policy makers, assists in local planning efforts, assesses local homeless needs and helps educate the public about homelessness, according to the release. The survey helps the Alachua of homelessness among students families, Lowe said. In 2012, 2,094 homeless people were counted.

THE CAT IS NINE MONTHS. FATEMAH ALBADERAlligator Contributing WriterFor eight months, caregivers at the Carson Springs Wildlife Conservation Foundation have taken care of what they thought was a female Eurasian lynx. But after now-9-month-old Zena went through a physical exam with a veterinarian last month, Christine Janks and Barry Janks, founders of the northwest Gainesville sanctuary, located at 8528 E. County Road 225, made a surprising discovery about the feline: she is actually a he. Christine Janks said a week after Zee was born, caregivers had trouble determining his gender because his mother was protecting him. As Zee lived on the sanctuary, Christine Janks said the lynxs sex was never questioned by caregivers. We all assumed Zee was a female as he got older, and lots of fur covered his private parts, she said. Christine Janks renamed Zena to Zee after they determined the feline was actually born a male. Dana Johnson, a 27-year-old UF biology senior and volunteer at the sanctuary, said she helped raise Zee, and took care of him when he was sick. Johnson said she wasnt bothered by the gender mix-up. It was more humorous than anything negative, she said.

COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterA bill to reform Student Government election codes was absent from the Student Senate agenda Tuesday night after being held last week. Senators were confused about who would hear the bill. The author, Sen. Morgan Vollrath, thought it would be discussed by the Senate on Tuesday. However, Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said she thought the bill was to be held for the temporary committee that would reform election codes. At last weeks meeting, Bonarrigo announced her plan to form the temporary committee. The committee has not been established yet because she is still looking for members. Senators listened to last weeks audio recording to determine when the bill would be heard again. The bill, which made campaigning codes more specific, is expected to be on next weeks meeting agenda. It includes more strict language regarding individual actions during campaigns. I expect my bill to be back on the agenda next week, he said. Im giving them a chance to do it right. The Senate also unanimously approved three bills Tuesday night. One bill removed the second-year clastwo law students required to serve on the Election Commission, and two bills called for at least 48 hours notice for executive cabinet and supervisor of election appointments.

Do I really have a right? Part TwoIn last weeks column, I drew upon the writings and ideas of various libertarian thinkers to synthesize and summarize a brief, and certainly not holistic, explanation of how we arrive at a theory of rights. In that column, I concluded that man owns himself and, by extension, can lay claim to all previously unowned property with which he has mixed his labor. He not only owns the land but also the fruits of that land. He can engage in voluntary trade by exchanging his labor, his services or the products of his land for other goods, services or money. Furthermore, any aggression against a person or his property violates that persons rights. Therefore, man has the freedom to pursue whatever ends he chooses so long as he does not initiate force against another person. So how do all of our other rights extend from this theory of property rights? To illustrate, lets use the right to keep and bear arms. If we own ourselves and our belongings, then in order to exert absolute ownership over these things, we must be given the ability to defend them from aggression. For the state to prohibit someone from acquiring the means to protect themselves, it has asserted partial ownership over that person. The right to keep and bear arms is a right to self-defense. Therefore, when someone claims they have a right to something, like education or health care, it is necessary to ask whether such a right violates the principles discussed above. Does a right to health care violate the rights of others? It certainly does. For one thing, health care is not a magical service that can be provided at will with no associated costs. A right to health care violates the property rights of health care practitioners by demanding they offer their services, an extension of their self-ownership, to anyone and everyone who needs it, eliminating all just and voluntary transactions. Instead, a right to health care institutes a system of indentured servitude. Furthermore, a right to health care also violates the property rights of the taxpayers because it requires, in order to subsidize care for those who cannot afford it, agents of the state to initiate force against its citizens to collect the funds necessary for these subsidies. The same principles apply when someone argues for the right to education or the right to a living wage. In each case, the government must aggress upon the rights of all individuals to establish these rights. Therefore, we can arrive at a general principle about determining the validity of rights. A claim about rights is only valid if such a claim does not require the state, its agents or other individuals to violate the rights of others through the initiation of force. But this discussion of rights helps further explain the ills of a growing government. When arguing for or against certain government interventions, it is often not enough to cite statistics about the unintended consequences of those policies. For every statistic one cites to argue against state intervention, statists will probably have three more to counter those arguments. Proponents of a larger state also frequently share a sad at the heart strings. However, without an emphasis on the ethical implicanever reveal the true aggressive and immoral nature of an expansive state. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in political communication. His column appears on Wednesdays.Textual Harassment: Were telling you otherwiseHave you read the newest newsletter in town? The Son Papers recently hit the streets of Gainesville with a bang. The weekly newsletter aims to share the truth of Gods son, Jesus Christ with our community. It will apparently stop at nothing until we acknowledge its existence. If you havent seen them, then were a little surprised, because they keep trying to shove themselves down our throats. For many weeks, the assistant director contacted the opinions editor of the Alligator with mailed letters. He started sending them, however, during the winter break between last semester and this semester, so no one read his corSince then, weve received many more letters. He invited us to submit weekly pieces on the preordained topics. The only way to say no thanks was to call, text or reply by letter. He didnt do email at the time. Anyway, were going to continue to share our version of the truth, wrote the only representative of the Son Papers who contacted us. Well continue to run the World Series of Truth and you guys will lose each issue by forfeit. Pardon our French, but how the hell is that fair? Or normal? Lets create a hypothetical situation. Its a few months before your wedding day, so its time to send out invitations. Invitations include an RSVP card. This helps you keep track of who will actually attend your event, by the way. You give your guests an appropriate deadline to respond. By that date, youre led to assume that only those who have replied to say they will be at your wedding will physically be there. Anyone who did not reply will either not be there or will not have a name card, so they might as well not even show up. We didnt agree to the challenge from the Sons Papers. We never replied. We already have our own section of a newspaper dedicated to stating our opinions; youre reading it right now. When we didnt respond after some time, the newsletter started to print results of its poll, which asks readers to contact the newsletter with their choice of who wrote their favorite version of the truth. In a letter from earlier this month, we were reassured that only those who have seen the introductory issue will know whats going on, and thats not a lot of people. Whoever your readers are, dude, theyre smart. They havent voted for your opponent. Because your opponent is the Alligator, a newspaper that doesnt have time to also write your newsletter for you. While were at it, you can stop using our racks to promote your newsletter. Weve had too many issues with those racks to just let someone else share the ones we have left. When I was in the Marine Corps, they taught us in radio communications that silence meant consent, wrote the assistant director in this weeks letter. Silence doesnt mean yes in everyone elses book, bro. Consider this our formal no thank you to your challenge. Best of luck in your future endeavors. Justin Hayesopinions@alligator.org

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 God bless them. Theres always one in every articles comment section. I was reading through articles about how women can now serve in combat units in the military, and, as always, people are hashing out their differences in the comments section. As people argue that this is a bad idea because women would be raped in prisoner-of-war situations or that this new ruling would cause training standards to drop, I can always count on there being one guy who says, And those hormones. Am I right, guys? Who wants to deal with all those women when theyre on their periods? I have nicknamed him the period guy. He is my favorite. I get the mental image of a dude sitting behind his computer and waiting for the Internet I am always comforted by the period guy because, in a world where sexism has become a multiheaded beast thats hard to identify and even harder to conquer, he will always exist as a shining example of lack of subtlety. Its always a blow to the ego when you realize your demographic hasnt exactly progressed as far as you hoped it would have. Its 2013 after all, right? groups that were needier in the civil rights department than I am, and then something like the combat debate hits the courts, and Im kicked off my social justice pedestal as I watch people go back to arguing about the rights of women. It always serves as a reminder that change is a long, arduous process that will never happen without some kicking and screaming along the way. I should be glad, at least, that the argument over gender equality has gone from broad situations to the military is now a bygone issue. It has been narrowed down to them serving in combat units. We are getting there surely enough, but it still seems to be taking a while. To be honest, I am really looking forward to seeing how this plays out in the next couple of years. I believe if the standards for combat training are unchanged, combat units will have to deal with women coming into their ranks. There may not be many women who make the training cut risks, but the ones who do will have earned the troops respect, and nothing will kill this whole debate faster than respect. Even down the road, Im going to check the comments section and still see the period guy to do to win a war is unleash a herd of women on their time of the month, so they can nag the enemy to death. Then I will reach through the Internet to he will still be sitting behind his keyboard making the same tired jokes, not noticing as the world progresses around him. Lauren Flannery is a business administration sophomore at UF. Her column usually runs on Tuesdays.Warfare, equality and that one online commenterColumn Lauren Flanneryopinions@alligator.org It is not uncommon for the more liberal elements of American politics to praise the welfare states found by the North Sea or north of our border. It is indeed admirable how effectively such countries ensure the quality of life of their citizens. But it is misleading and unhelpful to think of these countries as offering an alternative social and economic model to that of the United States. It is far better to view Scandinavian countries and Canada as comparable countries with successful practices that we can and ought to emulate. For proof that we are not so different, look at the Heritage Foundations 2013 Index of Economic Freedom. Canada is sixth in this ranking, Denmark ninth, the U.S. 10th, Finland 16th and Sweden 18th. All of these countries surpassed the U.S. in business freedom as well, partly due to lower corporate tax rates. Swedens government commands 51.3 percent of the gross domestic product compared to Americas 42 percent and Canadas 42.9 percent. The U.S. spends an additional 5.3 percent of GDP on tax expenditures. At any rate, America, Sweden and Canada can each be accurately categorized as having mixed market economies and big governments. In light of Swedens and Canadas substantial welfare states, it is impressive that they have kept balanced budgets and debt-to-GDP ratios below 50 percent. Though much of this can be credited to a steady stream of tax revenue, it is also due to foresighted pension reforms. Unlike Social Security, which uses a demographically unsustainable pay-as-you-go system, Canadas state pension plan is partially funded, while Swedens state pensions are partially privatized. Yet, we would do well to recall the early 1990s, when was a whopping 13 percent of GDP with unemployment at 10 percent in 1993. By comparison, Americas current unemployment rate Despite elevated unemployment rates, Sweden and primarily through spending cuts. In Canada, $7 of spending was slashed for every dollar in tax increases. Cherished social programs were gutted, and tens of thousands of public employees were let go. unemployment had fallen as well. spending and reduced taxes in the face of high unemployment and a Compared to Canadas and Swedens successes in the 1990s, current results in the U.S. have not been nearly as good. While Canada and Sweden also reduced taxes during the most recent recession, they did so from positions of Admittedly, these countries began their cuts during the 1990s with spending and tax levels higher than those in the U.S. Thus, tax cuts will be less effective in the U.S. today than they were in Canada and Sweden and, spending cuts will hurt more. However, despite the fact that government spending is no longer a larger share of GDP in Canada than in the U.S., Canada continues to forge ahead with such spending cuts. us. School choice programs introduced in the 1990s in Sweden have offered parents with limited means the ability to send their children to private schools. Contrary to American fears that such programs will undermine public schools, Swedens state institutions improved following the end of the soon-to-be monopoly on education, evidenced by the fact that most Swedish pupils still attend public school. Finnish schools while all public have a great deal of autonomy in curriculum development and pedagogy. Both Finnish and Canadian schools rely heavily on professional teacher development programs. All of these countries schools best American ones on international assessments, despite lower per pupil expenditures. I have not addressed the numerous social programs provided by Scandinavian countries that the U.S. does not offer to its citizens these, no doubt, account for part of the high living standards enjoyed by Swedes, Finns and others. Unfortunately, developing such programs is not an option for America, where governments at all levels face gaping budget holes. We can, however, set a path for sustainable budgets and growth in the future. Following the Northern model may be the way to go.

LOCa AL DANIELLA DE LA CAMPAAlligator Contributing WriterA Jewish center currently under construction in northwest Gainesville is set to reopen this fall. The Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center, located at 2021 NW Fifth Ave., has been in the process of reconstruction since April. Rabbi Berl Goldman, executive director of the community center, said the original building couldnt hold a lot of people. The center added a tent in the back of the building for a few years to accommodate residents and space issue. Goldman said the center decided to knock down the building to construct a larger center. We are just building a center to accommodate the ever-growing demand on our programs services, to accommodate the current interest and participation and to accommodate the future growth in generations that will attend, he said. Goldman said the centers construction costs about $4.5 million. He added that an endowment to the center will be $1.5 million. The center is still raising money for the endowment. It has been funding the project through the help of donations from individuals and foundations, he said. The new 23,000-square-foot center will have a 1,500-square-foot grand lobby, atrium, synagogue and social hall. The center will also include a fulltime kosher cafe, exercise facility, childrens room, Judaic study library and the faculty of the center. The building is being constructed to Leadership and Energy Environmental Design standards set by the U.S. Green Building Council, which Florida, Goldman said. Gabrielle Lipman, a 20-year-old UF health science junior, goes to Chabad and said she was excited for the changes. Throughout the time theyve been building, theyve had adequate space, Lipman said.

The professors conducted the two-year study at the UF-Inter national Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics International Distance Education Center in India. For hundreds of years, rice was grown in two phases. First, the seeds are planted under water in a nursery. Then, after they sprout, the rice is transplanted to the main Aerobic rice production, which skips the nursery phase, requires 37 to 45 percent less water than the tem of production, according to the study. In India, the government guar kilogram for growing rice. This incentive encourages farmers to grow rice instead of other crops that use less water, Li said. The new method aims to address the lack of rainwater and groundwater in the region. Researchers are still studying the aerobic process, trying to inpress weeds without using excess water. The philosophy in the U.S. is the same, Li said. We try to use less water and grow better crops. In the future, this research and similar studies may be useful in the production of other crops in India, the U.S. and around the globe. Water has become the most important natural resource in the world, he said. Thats the idea of our project long-term sustainability of resources.UF IFAS professors discover one-phase rice-growing technique SHAYNA POSSESAlligator Contributing Writer Alachua County judges denied the appeals of 29 Occupy Gainesville protesters including Bo Diddleys son, Ellas Anthony McDaniel to drop trespassing charges from 2011 during a case hearing Friday. The defendants were arrested in violation of a city of Gainesville park hours ordinance, which states city park facilities are open for public use between 6 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. During an Oct. 30 hearing, the defense argued the ordinance was unconstitutionally overbroad and unconstitutionally vague, according to Alligator archives. Attorney Geoffrey Mason, who represents 27 of the defendants, said Tuesday motions in April 2012 to dismiss the case on First Amendment violations. The judges ruled Friday the ordinance didnt violate the protesters constitutional rights because the ordinance is contentneutral, meaning it doesnt distinguish between favored and disfavored speech based on the expressed views. The judges order said the protesters were arrested only because of their location in the center of the park. It stressed the parks status as a freespeech zone during operating hours. supplemental motions next week based on a permit the protesters had applied for to use the park beyond regular hours from October 2011 to December 2012. The city granted the permit but only allowed the group to use the park for one night with no further explanation, he said. He said the ordinance, as written, allows the city manager complete control over whose requests are approved, making it a content-based ordinance. Were saying that the ordinance allows [the city manager] to make this rule anything he wants it to be, Mason said. If the new motions are dismissed, Mason said the defendants will likely go to trial.Gainesville protest case occupies judges minds THE STUDY FOUND THAT LIBRARIES ARE VALUED IN THEIR COMMUNITIES. BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterThe Pew Research Center released new Americans browse or borrow print books from the library. However, about 50 percent also said they visit the library to sit, read, study and watch or listen to media. Patrick Reakes, chair of Library West, said although UF libraries circulate a lot of books and e-books, the study rooms and computers are the primary attractions to students. Anecdotally, its kind of a destination thing, Reakes said. There are social reasons to come here. UF biochemistry junior Evan Broggi, 23, said the library is a sanctuary away from distractions and an excellent place to study. People come for the atmosphere, not the resources, he said. The study found that libraries were valued in their communities, but people didnt know all the services they had to offer. Americans in the study said what would entice them to use library services more. About 35 percent of those surveyed highly requested library services, such as Ask a Librarian, applications for collections, GPS library maps and technology petting zoos, which are stations where technology is brought in to sample. However, at the George A. Smathers Libraries, many of those ideas are already in practice. Its really interesting because so many things on the list were already doing, said Diane Bruxvoort, a senior associate dean of the Smathers Libraries. Reakes said the Ask a Librarian tool is already available, and RSS feeds from the catalog collection app are open to the public. He said a Google building search for inside UF libraries is in the works. UF libraries also offer workshops on how to utilize technology, and Bruxvoort said iPads will be available for students to check out within a few weeks. Our goal is to support the teaching and learning of the students and the researching of the faculty on this campus, she said.Libraries used as social hubsA two-year study was conducted in India We try to use less water and grow better crops.Yuncong LiUF professorReakes

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 RJ SCHAFFERAlligator WriterThanks to a strong second round, the Florida womens golf team took home its third victory of the season on Sunday in Lecanto. UF won the Florida Challenge against Florida State, Miami, UCF and USF. Five of eight Gators posted better scores in the second round Hedberg, the tournaments eventual co-champion, improved from a 72 to a 71. The women were led by senior Isabelle Lendl and sophomore Camilla Hedberg, who boast the secondand third-best stroke average in the nation, respectively. Lendl averages a 70.67, and Hedberg averages a 70.75. Lendl opened with an unchar acteristic round, shooting almost four strokes above her average. But she managed to pull her score down by three strokes in the second round. Hedberg, with her victory, joined just 11 other players in UF history to win at least three tour naments. the top 10. After scoring a 75 in score to a 73 in the second round Mary Beth Ramsay from Florida State. Piccio shot 1.9 strokes above her average of 72.1 but was closer to her usual form in the second round. Were taking it one tournament at a time, Piccio said in November. I think its very important to stay the process rather than looking ahead. We just got to keep working hard at practice, working hard when were rounds when were not playing that great, because thats how we get better. Just keep on playing. I think thats it when playing golf: The more you play, the more you improve and get better on the course. Emma Smyser was one of the Gators who improved between rounds, and her jump was the largest. tournament, she shot a 75 in the second round seven strokes of 82. Smysers role on in Floridas lineup will grow as the season progresses and expand even more when three seniors leave at the end of this season. Junior Elcin Ulu was one of three Gators who performed worse in the second round than Florida may have been in line for an even greater victory had Ulu, who transferred from Redlands Community College in Oklahoma, not followed up round with a 77 in the second. The Gators have two more tournaments on the road, at the Northrup Grumman Regional Championship in Palos Verdes, Calif., and the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, before they return home to Gainesville to host and compete in the SunTrust Gator Invitational on March 1517.Second-round improvements help Florida seal third victoryHedberg WOMENS GOLF

SEC play. Wilbekins 2.6 assist-to-turnover ratio ranks second in the conference. Senior guard Kenny Boynton, who is second on the team with 2.8 assists per game, leads the SEC with a 4.5 assist-to-turnover ratio during confer ence play. Those guys have done a good job back there taking care of the basketball, Donovan said. We had a little lapse midway through the second half (against Mississippi State) where we had some careless turnovers from Scottie and Kenny and Mike Rosario, but Scottie has done a really, really good open. He has made really good decisions, and I think he has made the game easier for other people around him. No. 4 Florida (16-2, 2-0 SEC) will look to maintain its discipline on offense when it hosts South Carolina tonight at 8 in the OConnell Center. The Gamecocks (12-7, 2-4 SEC) are 12th in the SEC in scoring defense, allowing 67.6 points per game. South Carolina ranks No. 13 in the conference in both steals per game (4.9) and turnover margin (minus-2.3). shots, teams get out on us on fastbreaks and score, Boynton said. Good shots is basically the main thing. Freshman team, hitting .250 with seven RBIs. He missed all of the 2012 season recovering from shoulder surgery. made a point of recruiting players who are versatile defensively. You only have 27 scholarship players, and with the emphasis that we placed on the pitching side of things, you have position players that are multiple defenders, OSullivan said. With the season set to begin on Feb. 15, OSullivan great coaching, athleticism, and the fact that they are here shows a lot.

Last year, he volunteered for eight hours. He said he chose to help again because he could use a couple bucks. Theresa Lowe, director of the Homelessness, said the surveyors were paid $10 an hour. Locally, volunteers conducted surveys at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, St. Francis House and Tent City, a homeless camp in southeast Gainesville, Lowe said. They also canvassed through wooded areas where small pockets of people may have been living. Some of those areas are secluded in a way that people walk by them every day and dont notice people live there, she said. The survey is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in order to determine the coalitions funding needs, Lowe said. It also documents the status of homelessness for local policy makers, assists in local planning efforts, assesses local homeless needs and helps educate the public about homelessness, according to the release.

FATEMAH ALBADERAlligator Contributing WriterFor eight months, caregivers at the Carson Springs Wildlife Conser vation Foundation have taken care of what they thought was a female Eurasian lynx. But after now-9-month-old Zena went through a physical exam with a veterinarian last month, Christine Janks and Barry Janks, founders of the northwest Gainesville sanctuary, located at 8528 E. County Road 225, made a surprising discovery about the feline: she is actually a he. Christine Janks said a week after Zee was born, caregivers had trouble determining his gender because his mother was protecting him. As Zee lived on the sanctuary, Christine Janks said the lynxs sex was never questioned by caregivers. We all assumed Zee was a female as he got older, and lots of fur covered his private parts, she said. Christine Janks renamed Zena to Zee after they determined the feline was actually born a male. Dana Johnson, a 27-year-old UF biology senior and volunteer at the sanctuary, said she helped raise Zee, and took care of him when he was sick. Johnson said she wasnt bothered by the gender mix-up. It was more humorous than anything negative, she said. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Courtesy to the Alligator The workers at Carson Springs Wildlife Conservation Foundation recently discovered that Zena, an Eurasian lynx, is actually male. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterA bill to reform Student Government election codes was absent from the Student Senate agenda Tuesday night after being held last week. Senators were confused about who would hear the bill. The author, Sen. Morgan Vollrath, thought it would be discussed by the Senate on Tuesday. However, Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said she thought the bill was to be held for the temporary committee that would reform election codes. At last weeks meeting, Bonarrigo announced her plan to form the temporary committee. The committee has not been established yet because she is still looking for members. Senators listened to last weeks audio recording to determine when the bill would be heard again. The bill, which made campaigning codes more specific, is expected to be on next weeks meeting agenda. It includes more strict language regarding individual actions during campaigns. I expect my bill to be back on the agenda next week, he said. Im giving them a chance to do it right. The Senate also unanimously approved three bills Tuesday night. One bill removed the second-year clastwo law students required to serve on the Election Commission, and two bills called for at least 48 hours notice for executive cabinet and supervisor of election appointments.

Do I really have a right? Part TwoIn last weeks column, I drew upon the writings and ideas of various libertarian thinkers to synthesize and summarize a brief, and certainly not holistic, explanation of how we arrive at a theory of rights. In that column, I concluded that man owns himself and, by extension, can lay claim to all previously unowned property with which he has mixed his labor. He not only owns the land but also the fruits of that land. He can engage in voluntary trade by exchanging his labor, his services or the products of his land for other goods, services or money. Furthermore, any aggression against a person or his property violates that persons rights. Therefore, man has the freedom to pursue whatever ends he chooses so long as he does not initiate force against another person. So how do all of our other rights extend from this theory of property rights? To illustrate, lets use the right to keep and bear arms. If we own ourselves and our belongings, then in order to exert absolute ownership over these things, we must be given the ability to defend them from aggression. For the state to prohibit someone from acquiring the means to protect themselves, it has asserted partial ownership over that person. The right to keep and bear arms is a right to self-defense. Therefore, when someone claims they have a right to something, like education or health care, it is necessary to ask whether such a right violates the principles discussed above. Does a right to health care violate the rights of others? It certainly does. For one thing, health care is not a magical service that can be provided at will with no associated costs. A right to health care violates the property rights of health care practitioners by demanding they offer their services, an extension of their self-ownership, to anyone and everyone who needs it, eliminating all just and voluntary transactions. Instead, a right to health care institutes a system of indentured servitude. Furthermore, a right to health care also violates the property rights of the taxpayers because it requires, in order to subsidize care for those who cannot afford it, agents of the state to initiate force against its citizens to collect the funds necessary for these subsidies. The same principles apply when someone argues for the right to education or the right to a living wage. In each case, the government must aggress upon the rights of all individuals to establish these rights. Therefore, we can arrive at a general principle about determining the validity of rights. A claim about rights is only valid if such a claim does not require the state, its agents or other individuals to violate the rights of others through the initiation of force. But this discussion of rights helps further explain the ills of a growing government. When arguing for or against certain government interventions, it is often not enough to cite statistics about the unintended consequences of those policies. For every statistic one cites to argue against state intervention, statists will probably have three more to counter those arguments. Proponents of a larger state also frequently share a sad at the heart strings. However, without an emphasis on the ethical implicanever reveal the true aggressive and immoral nature of an expansive state. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in political communication. His column appears on Wednesdays.Textual Harassment: Were telling you otherwiseHave you read the newest newsletter in town? The Son Papers recently hit the streets of Gainesville with a bang. The weekly newsletter aims to share the truth of Gods son, Jesus Christ with our community. It will apparently stop at nothing until we acknowledge its existence. If you havent seen them, then were a little surprised, because they keep trying to shove themselves down our throats. For many weeks, the assistant director contacted the opinions editor of the Alligator with mailed letters. He started sending them, however, during the winter break between last semester and this semester, so no one read his corSince then, weve received many more letters. He invited us to submit weekly pieces on the preordained topics. The only way to say no thanks was to call, text or reply by letter. He didnt do email at the time. Anyway, were going to continue to share our version of the truth, wrote the only representative of the Son Papers who contacted us. Well continue to run the World Series of Truth and you guys will lose each issue by forfeit. Pardon our French, but how the hell is that fair? Or normal? Lets create a hypothetical situation. Its a few months before your wedding day, so its time to send out invitations. Invitations include an RSVP card. This helps you keep track of who will actually attend your event, by the way. You give your guests an appropriate deadline to respond. By that date, youre led to assume that only those who have replied to say they will be at your wedding will physically be there. Anyone who did not reply will either not be there or will not have a name card, so they might as well not even show up. We didnt agree to the challenge from the Sons Papers. We never replied. We already have our own section of a newspaper dedicated to stating our opinions; youre reading it right now. When we didnt respond after some time, the newsletter started to print results of its poll, which asks readers to contact the newsletter with their choice of who wrote their favorite version of the truth. In a letter from earlier this month, we were reassured that only those who have seen the introductory issue will know whats going on, and thats not a lot of people. Whoever your readers are, dude, theyre smart. They havent voted for your opponent. Because your opponent is the Alligator, a newspaper that doesnt have time to also write your newsletter for you. While were at it, you can stop using our racks to promote your newsletter. Weve had too many issues with those racks to just let someone else share the ones we have left. When I was in the Marine Corps, they taught us in radio communications that silence meant consent, wrote the assistant director in this weeks letter. Silence doesnt mean yes in everyone elses book, bro. Consider this our formal no thank you to your challenge. Best of luck in your future endeavors. Justin Hayesopinions@alligator.org

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 God bless them. Theres always one in every articles comment section. I was reading through articles about how women can now serve in combat units in the military, and, as always, people are hashing out their differences in the comments section. As people argue that this is a bad idea because women would be raped in prisoner-of-war situations or that this new ruling would cause training standards to drop, I can always count on there being one guy who says, And those hormones. Am I right, guys? Who wants to deal with all those women when theyre on their periods? I have nicknamed him the period guy. He is my favorite. I get the mental image of a dude sitting behind his computer and waiting for the Internet I am always comforted by the period guy because, in a world where sexism has become a multiheaded beast thats hard to identify and even harder to conquer, he will always exist as a shining example of lack of subtlety. Its always a blow to the ego when you realize your demographic hasnt exactly progressed as far as you hoped it would have. Its 2013 after all, right? groups that were needier in the civil rights department than I am, and then something like the combat debate hits the courts, and Im kicked off my social justice pedestal as I watch people go back to arguing about the rights of women. It always serves as a reminder that change is a long, arduous process that will never happen without some kicking and screaming along the way. I should be glad, at least, that the argument over gender equality has gone from broad situations to the military is now a bygone issue. It has been narrowed down to them serving in combat units. We are getting there surely enough, but it still seems to be taking a while. To be honest, I am really looking forward to seeing how this plays out in the next couple of years. I believe if the standards for combat training are unchanged, combat units will have to deal with women coming into their ranks. There may not be many women who make the training cut risks, but the ones who do will have earned the troops respect, and nothing will kill this whole debate faster than respect. Even down the road, Im going to check the comments section and still see the period guy to do to win a war is unleash a herd of women on their time of the month, so they can nag the enemy to death. Then I will reach through the Internet to he will still be sitting behind his keyboard making the same tired jokes, not noticing as the world progresses around him. Lauren Flannery is a business administration sophomore at UF. Her column usually runs on Tuesdays.Warfare, equality and that one online commenterColumn Lauren Flanneryopinions@alligator.org It is not uncommon for the more liberal elements of American politics to praise the welfare states found by the North Sea or north of our border. It is indeed admirable how effectively such countries ensure the quality of life of their citizens. But it is misleading and unhelpful to think of these countries as offering an alternative social and economic model to that of the United States. It is far better to view Scandinavian countries and Canada as comparable countries with successful practices that we can and ought to emulate. For proof that we are not so different, look at the Heritage Foundations 2013 Index of Economic Freedom. Canada is sixth in this ranking, Denmark ninth, the U.S. 10th, Finland 16th and Sweden 18th. All of these countries surpassed the U.S. in business freedom as well, partly due to lower corporate tax rates. Swedens government commands 51.3 percent of the gross domestic product compared to Americas 42 percent and Canadas 42.9 percent. The U.S. spends an additional 5.3 percent of GDP on tax expenditures. At any rate, America, Sweden and Canada can each be accurately categorized as having mixed market economies and big governments. In light of Swedens and Canadas substantial welfare states, it is impressive that they have kept balanced budgets and debt-to-GDP ratios below 50 percent. Though much of this can be credited to a steady stream of tax revenue, it is also due to foresighted pension reforms. Unlike Social Security, which uses a demographically unsustainable pay-as-you-go system, Canadas state pension plan is partially funded, while Swedens state pensions are partially privatized. Yet, we would do well to recall the early 1990s, when was a whopping 13 percent of GDP with unemployment at 10 percent in 1993. By comparison, Americas current unemployment rate Despite elevated unemployment rates, Sweden and primarily through spending cuts. In Canada, $7 of spending was slashed for every dollar in tax increases. Cherished social programs were gutted, and tens of thousands of public employees were let go. unemployment had fallen as well. spending and reduced taxes in the face of high unemployment and a Compared to Canadas and Swedens successes in the 1990s, current results in the U.S. have not been nearly as good. While Canada and Sweden also reduced taxes during the most recent recession, they did so from positions of Admittedly, these countries began their cuts during the 1990s with spending and tax levels higher than those in the U.S. Thus, tax cuts will be less effective in the U.S. today than they were in Canada and Sweden and, spending cuts will hurt more. However, despite the fact that government spending is no longer a larger share of GDP in Canada than in the U.S., Canada continues to forge ahead with such spending cuts. us. School choice programs introduced in the 1990s in Sweden have offered parents with limited means the ability to send their children to private schools. Contrary to American fears that such programs will undermine public schools, Swedens state institutions improved following the end of the soon-to-be monopoly on education, evidenced by the fact that most Swedish pupils still attend public school. Finnish schools while all public have a great deal of autonomy in curriculum development and pedagogy. Both Finnish and Canadian schools rely heavily on professional teacher development programs. All of these countries schools best American ones on international assessments, despite lower per pupil expenditures. I have not addressed the numerous social programs provided by Scandinavian countries that the U.S. does not offer to its citizens these, no doubt, account for part of the high living standards enjoyed by Swedes, Finns and others. Unfortunately, developing such programs is not an option for America, where governments at all levels face gaping budget holes. We can, however, set a path for sustainable budgets and growth in the future. Following the Northern model may be the way to go.

8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013Becca Negron / AlligatorRabbi Berl Goldman, executive director of the Tabacinic Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center, at 2021 NW Fifth Ave., stands in the site of the new center. LOC AL DANIELLA DE LA CAMPAAlligator Contributing WriterA Jewish center currently under construction in northwest Gainesville is set to reopen this fall. The Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center, located at 2021 NW Fifth Ave., has been in the process of reconstruction since April. Rabbi Berl Goldman, executive director of the community center, said the original building couldnt hold a lot of people. The center added a tent in the back of the building for a few years to accommodate residents and space issue. Goldman said the center decided to knock down the building to construct a larger center. We are just building a center to accommodate the ever-growing demand on our programs services, to accommodate the current interest and participation and to accommodate the future growth in generations that will attend, he said. Goldman said the centers construction costs about $4.5 million. He added that an endowment to the center will be $1.5 million. The center is still raising money for the endowment. It has been funding the project through the help of donations from individuals and foundations, he said. The new 23,000-square-foot center will have a 1,500-square-foot grand lobby, atrium, synagogue and social hall. The center will also include a fulltime kosher cafe, exercise facility, childrens room, Judaic study library and the faculty of the center. The building is being constructed to Leadership and Energy Environmental Design standards set by the U.S. Green Building Council, which Florida, Goldman said. Gabrielle Lipman, a 20-year-old UF health science junior, goes to Chabad and said she was excited for the changes. Throughout the time theyve been building, theyve had adequate space, Lipman said. I think it is absolutely great to have the infrastructure to support Jewish students at UF.New Jewish center under construction, set to reopen in Fall ELENI KOUVATSOSAlligator Contributing Writer Two UF professors have found other crops in communities suffer ing from a drought. Rao Mylavarapu and Yuncong Li, professors in UFs soil and water science department of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, introduced a concept called aerobic rice production with the help of a Ph. D. candidate, a professor from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and a colleague from India. The professors conducted the two-year study at the UF-Inter national Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics International Distance Education Center in India. For hundreds of years, rice was grown in two phases. First, the seeds are planted under water in a nursery. Then, after they sprout, the rice is transplanted to the main Aerobic rice production, which skips the nursery phase, requires 37 to 45 percent less water than the tem of production, according to the study. In India, the government guar kilogram for growing rice. This incentive encourages farmers to grow rice instead of other crops that use less water, Li said. The new method aims to address the lack of rainwater and groundwater in the region. Researchers are still studying the aerobic process, trying to inpress weeds without using excess water. The philosophy in the U.S. is the same, Li said. We try to use less water and grow better crops. In the future, this research and similar studies may be useful in the production of other crops in India, the U.S. and around the globe. Water has become the most important natural resource in the world, he said. Thats the idea of our project long-term sustainability of resources.UF IFAS professors discover one-phase rice-growing technique SHAYNA POSSESAlligator Contributing Writer Alachua County judges denied the appeals of 29 Occupy Gainesville protesters including Bo Diddleys son, Ellas Anthony McDaniel to drop trespassing charges from 2011 during a case hearing Friday. The defendants were arrested in violation of a city of Gainesville park hours ordinance, which states city park facilities are open for public use between 6 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. During an Oct. 30 hearing, the defense argued the ordinance was unconstitutionally overbroad and unconstitutionally vague, according to Alligator archives. Attorney Geoffrey Mason, who represents 27 of the defendants, said Tuesday motions in April 2012 to dismiss the case on First Amendment violations. The judges ruled Friday the ordinance didnt violate the protesters constitutional rights because the ordinance is contentneutral, meaning it doesnt distinguish between favored and disfavored speech based on the expressed views. The judges order said the protesters were arrested only because of their location in the center of the park. It stressed the parks status as a freespeech zone during operating hours. supplemental motions next week based on a permit the protesters had applied for to use the park beyond regular hours from October 2011 to December 2012. The city granted the permit but only allowed the group to use the park for one night with no further explanation, he said. He said the ordinance, as written, allows the city manager complete control over whose requests are approved, making it a content-based ordinance. Were saying that the ordinance allows [the city manager] to make this rule anything he wants it to be, Mason said. If the new motions are dismissed, Mason said the defendants will likely go to trial.Gainesville protest case occupies judges minds THE STUDY FOUND THAT LIBRARIES ARE VALUED IN THEIR COMMUNITIES. BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterThe Pew Research Center released new Americans browse or borrow print books from the library. However, about 50 percent also said they visit the library to sit, read, study and watch or listen to media. Patrick Reakes, chair of Library West, said although UF libraries circulate a lot of books and e-books, the study rooms and computers are the primary attractions to students. Anecdotally, its kind of a destination thing, Reakes said. There are social reasons to come here. UF biochemistry junior Evan Broggi, 23, said the library is a sanctuary away from distractions and an excellent place to study. People come for the atmosphere, not the resources, he said. The study found that libraries were valued in their communities, but people didnt know all the services they had to offer. Americans in the study said what would entice them to use library services more. About 35 percent of those surveyed highly requested library services, such as Ask a Librarian, applications for collections, GPS library maps and technology petting zoos, which are stations where technology is brought in to sample. However, at the George A. Smathers Libraries, many of those ideas are already in practice. Its really interesting because so many things on the list were already doing, said Diane Bruxvoort, a senior associate dean of the Smathers Libraries. Reakes said the Ask a Librarian tool is already available, and RSS feeds from the catalog collection app are open to the public. He said a Google building search for inside UF libraries is in the works. UF libraries also offer workshops on how to utilize technology, and Bruxvoort said iPads will be available for students to check out within a few weeks. Our goal is to support the teaching and learning of the students and the researching of the faculty on this campus, she said.Libraries used as social hubsA two-year study was conducted in India We try to use less water and grow better crops.Yuncong LiUF professorReakes

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 RJ SCHAFFERAlligator WriterThanks to a strong second round, the Florida womens golf team took home its third victory of the season on Sunday in Lecanto. UF won the Florida Challenge against Florida State, Miami, UCF and USF. Five of eight Gators posted better scores in the second round Hedberg, the tournaments eventual co-champion, improved from a 72 to a 71. The women were led by senior Isabelle Lendl and sophomore Camilla Hedberg, who boast the secondand third-best stroke average in the nation, respectively. Lendl averages a 70.67, and Hedberg averages a 70.75. Lendl opened with an unchar acteristic round, shooting almost four strokes above her average. But she managed to pull her score down by three strokes in the second round. Hedberg, with her victory, joined just 11 other players in UF history to win at least three tour naments. the top 10. After scoring a 75 in score to a 73 in the second round Mary Beth Ramsay from Florida State. Piccio shot 1.9 strokes above her average of 72.1 but was closer to her usual form in the second round. Were taking it one tournament at a time, Piccio said in November. I think its very important to stay the process rather than looking ahead. We just got to keep working hard at practice, working hard when were rounds when were not playing that great, because thats how we get better. Just keep on playing. I think thats it when playing golf: The more you play, the more you improve and get better on the course. Emma Smyser was one of the Gators who improved between rounds, and her jump was the largest. tournament, she shot a 75 in the second round seven strokes of 82. Smysers role on in Floridas lineup will grow as the season progresses and expand even more when three seniors leave at the end of this season. Junior Elcin Ulu was one of three Gators who performed worse in the second round than Florida may have been in line for an even greater victory had Ulu, who transferred from Redlands Community College in Oklahoma, not followed up round with a 77 in the second. The Gators have two more tournaments on the road, at the Northrup Grumman Regional Championship in Palos Verdes, Calif., and the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, before they return home to Gainesville to host and compete in the SunTrust Gator Invitational on March 1517.Second-round improvements help Florida seal third victoryHedberg WOMENS GOLF

SEC play. Wilbekins 2.6 assist-to-turnover ratio ranks second in the conference. Senior guard Kenny Boynton, who is second on the team with 2.8 assists per game, leads the SEC with a 4.5 assist-to-turnover ratio during confer ence play. Those guys have done a good job back there taking care of the basketball, Donovan said. We had a little lapse midway through the second half (against Mississippi State) where we had some careless turnovers from Scottie and Kenny and Mike Rosario, but Scottie has done a really, really good open. He has made really good decisions, and I think he has made the game easier for other people around him. No. 4 Florida (16-2, 2-0 SEC) will look to maintain its discipline on offense when it hosts South Carolina tonight at 8 in the OConnell Center. The Gamecocks (12-7, 2-4 SEC) are 12th in the SEC in scoring defense, allowing 67.6 points per game.
