As a result, the $85 billion cuts, known as the sequester, took effect at midnight. Although the sequester is not supposed to affect military pay or social safety-net programs such as Medicare and Social Security, major concerns loom over its impact on economic growth. UF students wont feel the effects of the spending cuts on Rick Wilder, director of UF Student Financial Affairs, said be mild and wont occur until the 2013-2014 academic year. Financial aid programs here at the university have been very stable for decades, he said. The cuts, however, will have a negative impact on research at universities.Sequestration could affect educationSEE BUDGET, PAGE 4CRIME CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterGainesville Police arrested two UF students early Thursday morning after they were seen tampering with a vehicle.

From Saturday to March 10, Regional Transit Service will run on its reduced service schedule, which includes suspending some of its routes, according to an RTS press release. City routes 1, 9, 10, 12, 13, 16, 17, 20, 23, 34, 35, 36 and 43 will run less often during the week. Later Gator, campus service and city routes 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 38, 39, 46, 62 and 76 will not run during the break. Since ridership reduces during the break and some of our service is funded by UF and Santa Fe, they dont want to pay when most students are out of town, said Chip Skinner, RTS marketing and communications supervisor. Some students may be affected by this temporary schedule. Alex Lum, an 18-year-old UF statistics freshman, said he plans to spend the majority of the break in Gainesville. Lum said besides going to work, hell be studying. I dont think Ill be bothered by how little the bus is running, he said.

She made an announcement about helping to bring physical activity to schools while celebrating the third anniversary of her Lets Move! campaign. FEWER ADULTS ARE BUYING HOMES AND CARS. KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterAlex Zins will graduate this spring and enter the workforce. But it will be a while before the 22-yearold starts thinking about buying any expensive items, for fear of falling into debt. Zins is not alone in being afraid of debt, according to a new study from the Pew Research Center. It shows fewer adults younger than 35 are buying homes, owning cars and incurring credit card debt. Were used to thinking about this that way by now, said Zins, a UF information systems and operations management senior. When we were looking at colleges, we had to think about the recession and how it would affect our decision. Thats no surprise to UF microeconomics professor Mark Rush, who is investigating factors that tivity. He said avoiding situations that could produce debt is common dur ing a recession. Students are leaving college with more college debt, which is making them a little wary about taking additional debt for a home or car because they are concerned about paying off student loans, Rush said. The study showed the share of younger households in debt was 78 percent the lowest since the government began gathering the data. Watching the media portray the recession made debt seem like a real thing, Zins said. We just had a head start versus students 10 years ago.Young adults more cash cautious with spending, study shows JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing Writer Gainesville Police gathered on the North Lawn on Thursday to educate students about how to stay safe during Spring Break. Emily Zeilberger, a representative for Nightlife Navigators, said the organization asked police to talk about drugs, alcohol and safety tips. Its important because theres only so much we can tell other students, she said. Its a stronger impact when police come to talk. Zeilberger, an 18-year-old UF geomatics freshman, said she asked passers-by to sign a petition for the Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol to extend its driving perimeter by a block. She said they have about 2,000 signatures supporting SNAPs expansion. to about 50 students during Wednesday and Thursdays events. Tierney said there are many ways students can stay safe during the holiday. A big thing people tend to forget is not to broadcast on social media where you are going, she said. Dont put out so much information. Tierney also said students should pack their cars during the day, lock their doors and windows, put bicycles inside if they are leaving and lock scooters in a well-lit area.Event promotes break safetyResearch, public schools to be affectedDavid Norton, vice president for research at UF, said the cuts to research which equal about 5 percent of federal funding, or about $14 million annually will mean less support for graduate student research, fewer inventions from UF researchers and fewer companies sprung from research. From a national point of view, its a decrease in support for basic research funding at a time when we actually should be looking at increasing research because of the competitiveness in the global community, he said. The sequester will also impact public schools nationwide. Jackie Johnson, spokeswoman for Alachua County Public Schools, said the cuts will be devastating on public education. Although the district doesnt know what the cuts will entail, she said it expects to face cuts of about 5 percent to 9 percent of the $39 million it receives annually from the federal government for programs such as Title I and Head Start. She said the cuts will impact the most vulnerable students: the poor and disabled. The worst-case scenario is that we have a whole lot of students going without services, she said. I dont like to think about poor children missing out on meals because the federal government cant reach some sort of agreement on sequestration.

KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterThe 60s furniture icon has become a practical solution for space-constrained apartment dwellers. But for Byron Young, his future could be changed by his beanbag development. Young, a 43-year-old UF alumnus and president of CordaRoys Beanbag Beds, will appear on ABCs reality show, Shark Tank, on Friday. Youngs patented products are beanbags that convert to beds. He runs his business at his northwest Gainesville store, located at 5310 NW Eighth Ave. known on as sharks, for funding toward his product. Although Young couldnt reveal the results of the show, he described how he felt being in front of TV cameras. It was the most terrifying experience of my life, he said, not just actually speaking in front of the sharks, but the months leading up to it. In October, Young went to Orlando for an open casting call to get on the show. He said he waited in what seemed like an endless line. It felt a lot like the American Idol auditions you see on TV, Young said. While in line, Young was performing a demonstration for a potential customer when a casting staff member noticed his product and asked him to take his turn for an audition right then. ment to be featured on the show. Representatives from How Do You Roll?, a sushi franchise opening inside the Stadium Club complex on West University Avenue, also made an appearance in front of the investors Feb. 15. chains Gainesville location, said the show had a positive impact on the business. Since Shark Tank aired, we actually did get a million dollars in investments but also over 300 phone calls in Florida alone from people who wanted to open their own franchises of the company, he said. And across the country, there have been hundreds and hundreds of calls, too. There will be a watch party for Youngs episode at Cymplify Central and CYM Coffee Company, located at 5402 NW Eighth Ave. FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Javier Edwards / AlligatorCordaRoys Beanbag Beds owner Byron Young will be featured on ABCs Shark Tank in an upcoming episode.

MAX MATTERNAlligator Contributing WriterLog in, delete spam, read the important ones and log off. Aldo Araujo, an 18-year-old UF public relations freshman, has developed a routine in checking his Hotmail account. But come this summer, Araujo and all other Hotmail users will see a switch-up when Outlook.com entirely replaces Hotmail as Microsofts new webmail service. The concept behind the change is to take a step toward building a new email service, according to Microsofts website. Its focus is four points: delivering a fresh experience on modern browsers and devices, keeping people connected through all networks, providing an up-to-date inbox and putting people in control of their privacy. Emails are just emails, so making it look nicer and Araujo said. The update comes too late for some Hotmail users like Vicki Powell and Johana Ballesteros. They use the account for junk mail. Powell, a 20-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences junior, just uses her account for deals and sales at stores. Ballesteros, 19, a UF family, youth and community sciences sophomore, uses it for Facebook and Twitter updates. They both use other email systems like Yahoo and UFs Webmail for everyday emails. Andrea Ramos, a 22-year-old UF marketing senior, is an avid Gmail user. She said she doesnt have any interest in trying Outlook. In an interview with NBC, David Law, director of product management for Outlook, said one-third of the current Outlook.com users either have or used to have a Gmail account. That statistic made Ramos curious to learn more. Makes me very curious into seeing why they changed from Gmail to Outlook and to maybe even explore it, Ramos said. I am still loyal to Gmail, though, because I like it so much.Hotmail to soon get new outlook

I voted in the SG election because it matters I The Independent Florida Alligator is a student bastion intended to promote and assist UF students in all aspects from police reports to athletics to Student Government. Those of us who write opinion columns have an even greater responsibility when it comes to the realm of SG because we are allowed access to a greater audience one we should strive to make sure continues to take us seriously, for the most part. before Spring Break. Then I opened to Page 6 and 7 to check up on my fellow columnists. I became furious, enraged, livid. One of the columns was a chest-thumping-I-didntvote-heres-why-and-Im-proud-of-it article that blew my mind. We had columnists debate before this semester, notably about rap music. I considered throwing in my two cents, but I decided against it because I prioritized other issues. This issue takes priority. Voting is a duty all eligible citizens should participate in, regardless of whether the contest is local, collegiate, state or federal. I have every single I voted sticker stuck to a small know I am continually involving and investing myself in a democratic process that makes my community be it UF, Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida or the entire United States a better place. When I write my columns, I do so to encourage the ideals I believe in. I give my all to creating an articulate, yet impassioned, argument that seeks to improve the world I live in even if its only by the tiniest iota. Even a column written around 3 a.m. with a nonsensical theme of defending haters has root in ideals that I strive to live by. All of this led me to a sense of disbelief as I read the column further. Although a small part of me is appreciative that an uninformed student chose not to vote, I have severe issues with why that voting didnt occur. The column points out the attempts at rebranding one party undergoes to distance itself from previous scandals. This party, may I add, has had confrontations with the Alligator in the past. Events such as dumping papers, which should incense any self-respecting columnist, journalism major aged the removal of the iconic orange racks that hold a prestigious paper come to mind. It is unacceptable that the greatest distinction one can make between two parties is between T-shirts. That is a failure as a citizen and a student before anything else. It is disrespectful to those who try to further their cause in the marketplace of ideas. It is disrespectful to those who read the Alligator, and it is disrespectful to other columnists. The column ends with the following sentence: I felt power in lying to them about my voting status and felt power in not being part of their drama. This isnt high school. The cliques of the popular kids decide more than where the cool table is located now. If you cant be bothered to take enough time to make a difference during election season, its wrong to expect people to view your opinion on the election as valid. Enjoy the break, Gators.

FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Last week, I wrote a column about the Swamp Party. I outlined some of the suspicious and unethical behavior of the Swamp Party and its predecessor parties. This week, I would like to outline why the Swamp Party is dangerous to anyone in Student Government who has an opposing point of view, and I would also like to explain why minority organizations should stay far away from the Swamp Party. In the Summer of 2011, the Student Senate passed the predecessor, the Unite Party, at the time. According to Alligator archives, the passage of the act would grant the Senate president power to remove disruptive individuals from the chamber, give the judiciary committee power to kill legislation before it reached the Senate number of votes needed to approve certain motions. gave the majority the power to silence the minority. es than Unite did. It may be that Swamp is just as hostile to anyone with an opposing point of view, and that would be dangerous. A Senate with a massive budget of $17.5 million dollars and runaway majority power can be dangerous to all students. The really scary part is some of these people may very well go into politics. If anyone cares anything about the minority voice, he or she should stay away from the Swamp Party for that reason alone. to care. This is as true for minority parties as it is for minority organizations on campus. Every group has its own agenda, including the majority. The majority will pursue its own agenda until the minority compels the majority to take notice and act. I would like to draw on some analogies from UF history. The UF Institute of Black Culture became part of UF in 1971 after a tumultuous year of black student arrests, withdrawals, protests and sit-ins. The IBC was established as a direct result of those valiant student actions. In the face of racism, unity was established. The IBC proudly displays old Florida Alligator clippings detailing the history of struggle between the black Student Racism was met with a strong, nonviolent force, and racism was overcome. Another analogy would be that of the Asian experience on campus. In 2001, a fraternity held a party in which males were dressed as American GIs and females were dressed as Vietnamese prostitutes, according to an article by the Florida TimesUnion. According to Leah Villanueva, the current director of Asian Pacific Islander American Affairs at UF, in 2003, a rally was held after the fraternity held a similar Vietnamthemed party. Villanueva, who was present at the rally, said the Asian American Student Union called for certain reforms, including the establishment of The moments when we are the most upright, both as a Student Body and as a species, are when we are sensitive to what others are due. Very often, this requires reminding people about the needs and agendas of others. the minorities to submissively do the will of the majority. If the minorities are quiet and loyal to the majority, then the might require some shouting, and that might mean staying far away from the Swamp Party.

Theres no sense to keep harping on a loss or keep harping on the mistakes, OSullivan said. There are positives. Losing is contagious, but also winning is as well. All it takes is one good game and everybody is starting to feel good about themselves and you get things rolling in the right direction. under OSullivan in 2008 on the heels of a 20-5 start. The Gators rebounded from that slump with a three-game winning streak. Three of Floridas six losses in 2013 have been in extra innings. The other three defeats have been by just one run, so the team believes success isnt far off. I think we need to improve and stay positive, OSullivan said.

Team doctors have cleared Yeguete and Frazier to play Saturday, but how much time both players will log off the bench is still uncertain. The winner of Saturdays contest will own the top spot in the Southeastern Conference standings with only two games remaining on the conference slate. Yeguete is questionable to face the Crimson Tide. Donovan will make a decision on Yeguetes return based on how the 6-foot7 junior responds to full-contact drills. My expectation on him going into the game is not very high, just because I havent seen him play, Donovan said. Obviously, hes got two days to practice, but I would be hard-pressed to believe hes going to be the same player he was when he went down with his injury. Itll probably take him some time to get back, but at least he can start working to get back in shape and get back in rhythm. Said Yeguete: Im not putting any pressure on myself. played 5-10 minutes, Id be happy with it. Since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Feb. 8 to remove bone chips in his right knee, Yeguete has missed No. 8 Floridas (22-5, 12-3 SEC) past six games. Without Yeguete, UFs second-leading rebounder with 6.3 rebounds per contest, the Gators have won the battle on the boards once in the past six games. After sitting out for nearly a month, Yeguete is excited to see the practice court. I feel like a little kid right now, he said. Its been a minute since I played with those guys and just be on the court and compete. But at the same time, Im not going to be 100 percent and not going to be able to go up and down for 30 minutes like a regular practice.

As soon as the whistle blew, she sprinted forward and launched the ball into the back of the net for what seemed to be the go-ahead goal. With seconds to spare in overtime, Wiegand and her teammates celebrated after nearly pulling off the impossible, guaranteeing a spot in the national championship game. But a whistle was blown. Wiegands stick was checked and deemed illegal. The net at the end of her stick was too deep. The goal was taken away.

ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterAfter yet another poor perfor mance on the mound, closer Johnny Magliozzi had enough. He brought Floridas pitching staff together for a meeting after Wednesdays extrainning loss to North Florida. Six pitchers combined to issue four walks, hit two batters and allow seven base runners on two-strike counts. Having pitchers extend innings has been a death sentence for an offense struggling with situational hitting. After the Gators took a 1-0 lead in the second on Friday against Florida Gulf Coast ace Ricky Knapp, Jonathon Crawford lost command in the sixth. The Friday night starter hit the No. 9 batter to lead off the inning and then issued a one-out walk one batter later. Coach Kevin OSullivan pulled Crawford and the Eagles Brooks Beisner hit a three-run homer two batters later off Daniel Gibson. Each time the Gators have taken a lead this year, their pitching staff seemingly falls apart. (We need to) let our hitters get comfortable in the box, because we really havent been doing that, Crawford said. Crawford gets another chance to improve his command when Florida hosts Miami tonight at 7. Hes expected to face more batters as OSullivan continues to increase his pitch count with each start. With Floridas bullpen at 55.2 innings through nine games, seeing a starter last past the sixth inning would be a welcome sight. UF starting pitchers have thrown just 31.1 innings in nine games. He got close to 80 pitches last time out, OSullivan said of Crawford. Hes getting close to that 100-pitch mark now. A longer outing wont be a guar antee. Crawford still has to hold up his end of the bargain a task every Florida pitcher has had trouble with this season. Just focus on attacking the hitters and let themselves get out, Crawford said. That in turn will help me get deeper into games. OSullivan held his own candid dugout meeting before his pitchers met separately following the loss to North Florida. The sixth-year coach acknowledges that he can only say so much. The rest is up to the players. We can have all the meetings we want, OSullivan said. Its pretty simple. We got to get the ball down and we got to pitch a little bit better. Miami Hurricanes starting rotation: Chris Diaz faced the Gators last season in relief in Coral Gables. A year later he faces them again, but as the Friday night starter at McKethan Stadium. The sophomore is 1-0 with a 0.75 ERA in two starts this year.

Despite the offense cooling down from its Gators are 6-1 since they run-ruled Charleston Southern 9-1 on Feb. 17. The reason is simple only one team in that seven-game span has scored more than three runs against the Florida pitching staff. Were not thinking too hard about the game, junior pitcher Hannah Rogers said. Were just going out there and doing what we know best. In the last week, Florida pitchers have an Rogers anchors the Gators rotation, and shes pitched more innings than the rest of the staff combined. She has pitched in four of Floridas last out Loyola Marymount on Feb. 21 and came out of the bullpen to relieve sophomore Lauren Haeger against Missouri and Georgia Tech on Feb. 22 and 23, respectively. Rogers also started against USF on Wednesday. Against the Bulls, Rogers tossed a complete game, allowing only one run on a fourth-inning homer to Kenshyra Jackson. I thought I came out pretty strong, Rogers said. They got a few bats on the ball, but we played awesome defense [Wednesday night], so it didnt really matter. But Rogers is not the only pitcher who has been dominating in the pitching circle. Sophomore Alyssa Bache has continued putting up dominant numbers in her starts. I think shes more relaxed this year, Rogers said of Bache. Shes been working hard in the bullpen on hitting good spots, and also shes throwing a lot harder this year. Baches last start came against Syracuse on Feb. 22, and allowed only one run while striking out nine in seven innings en route to a 5-1 Gators victory. out multitudes of opposing batters has been a common theme for Bache this year. She has completed all four games shes started, and she is averaging 8.68 strikeouts per seven innings pitched, the best rate on the team.

KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterAlex Zins will graduate this spring and enter the workforce. But it will be a while before the 22-yearold starts thinking about buying any expensive items, for fear of falling into debt. Zins is not alone in being afraid of debt, according to a new study from the Pew Research Center. It shows fewer adults younger than 35 are buying homes, owning cars and incurring credit card debt. Were used to thinking about this that way by now, said Zins, a UF information systems and operations management senior. When we were looking at colleges, we had to think about the recession and how it would affect our decision. Thats no surprise to UF microeconomics professor Mark Rush, who is investigating factors that tivity. He said avoiding situations that could produce debt is common dur ing a recession. Students are leaving college with more college debt, which is making them a little wary about taking additional debt for a home or car because they are concerned about paying off student loans, Rush said. The study showed the share of younger households in debt was 78 percent the lowest since the government began gathering the data. Watching the media portray the recession made debt seem like a real thing, Zins said. We just had a head start versus students 10 years ago.Young adults more cash cautious with spending, study shows JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing Writer Gainesville Police gathered on the North Lawn on Thursday to educate students about how to stay safe during Spring Break. Emily Zeilberger, a representative for Nightlife Navigators, said the organization asked police to talk about drugs, alcohol and safety tips. Its important because theres only so much we can tell other students, she said. Its a stronger impact when police come to talk. Zeilberger, an 18-year-old UF geomatics freshman, said she asked passers-by to sign a petition for the Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol to extend its driving perimeter by a block. She said they have about 2,000 signatures supporting SNAPs expansion. to about 50 students during Wednesday and Thursdays events. Tierney said there are many ways students can stay safe during the holiday. A big thing people tend to forget is not to broadcast on social media where you are going, she said. Dont put out so much information. Tierney also said students should pack their cars during the day, lock their doors and windows, put bicycles inside if they are leaving and lock scooters in a well-lit area.Event promotes break safetyResearch, public schools to be affectedDavid Norton, vice president for research at UF, said the cuts to research which equal about 5 percent of federal funding, or about $14 million annually will mean less support for graduate student research, fewer inventions from UF researchers and fewer companies sprung from research. From a national point of view, its a decrease in support for basic research funding at a time when we actually should be looking at increasing research because of the competitiveness in the global community, he said. The sequester will also impact public schools nationwide. Jackie Johnson, spokeswoman for Alachua County Public Schools, said the cuts will be devastating on public education. Although the district doesnt know what the cuts will entail, she said it expects to face cuts of about 5 percent to 9 percent of the $39 million it receives annually from the federal government for programs such as Title I and Head Start. She said the cuts will impact the most vulnerable students: the poor and disabled. The worst-case scenario is that we have a whole lot of students going without services, she said. I dont like to think about poor children missing out on meals because the federal government cant reach some sort of agreement on sequestration.

MAX MATTERNAlligator Contributing WriterLog in, delete spam, read the important ones and log off. Aldo Araujo, an 18-year-old UF public relations freshman, has developed a routine in checking his Hotmail account. But come this summer, Araujo and all other Hotmail users will see a switch-up when Outlook.com entirely replaces Hotmail as Microsofts new webmail service. The concept behind the change is to take a step toward building a new email service, according to Microsofts website. Its focus is four points: delivering a fresh experience on modern browsers and devices, keeping people connected through all networks, providing an up-to-date inbox and putting people in control of their privacy. Emails are just emails, so making it look nicer and Araujo said. The update comes too late for some Hotmail users like Vicki Powell and Johana Ballesteros. They use the account for junk mail. Powell, a 20-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences junior, just uses her account for deals and sales at stores. Ballesteros, 19, a UF family, youth and community sciences sophomore, uses it for Facebook and Twitter updates. They both use other email systems like Yahoo and UFs Webmail for everyday emails. Andrea Ramos, a 22-year-old UF marketing senior, is an avid Gmail user. She said she doesnt have any interest in trying Outlook. In an interview with NBC, David Law, director of product management for Outlook, said one-third of the current Outlook.com users either have or used to have a Gmail account. That statistic made Ramos curious to learn more. Makes me very curious into seeing why they changed from Gmail to Outlook and to maybe even explore it, Ramos said. I am still loyal to Gmail, though, because I like it so much.Hotmail to soon get new outlook

Well be resting up to get ready to kick the last half of the semesters butt, and we recommend you do the same! I voted in the SG election because it matters I The Independent Florida Alligator is a student bastion intended to promote and assist UF students in all aspects from police reports to athletics to Student Government. Those of us who write opinion columns have an even greater responsibility when it comes to the realm of SG because we are allowed access to a greater audience one we should strive to make sure continues to take us seriously, for the most part. before Spring Break. Then I opened to Page 6 and 7 to check up on my fellow columnists. I became furious, enraged, livid. One of the columns was a chest-thumping-I-didntvote-heres-why-and-Im-proud-of-it article that blew my mind. We had columnists debate before this semester, notably about rap music. I considered throwing in my two cents, but I decided against it because I prioritized other issues. This issue takes priority. Voting is a duty all eligible citizens should participate in, regardless of whether the contest is local, collegiate, state or federal. I have every single I voted sticker stuck to a small know I am continually involving and investing myself in a democratic process that makes my community be it UF, Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida or the entire United States a better place. When I write my columns, I do so to encourage the ideals I believe in. I give my all to creating an articulate, yet impassioned, argument that seeks to improve the world I live in even if its only by the tiniest iota. Even a column written around 3 a.m. with a nonsensical theme of defending haters has root in ideals that I strive to live by. All of this led me to a sense of disbelief as I read the column further. Although a small part of me is appreciative that an uninformed student chose not to vote, I have severe issues with why that voting didnt occur. The column points out the attempts at rebranding one party undergoes to distance itself from previous scandals. This party, may I add, has had confrontations with the Alligator in the past. Events such as dumping papers, which should incense any self-respecting columnist, journalism major aged the removal of the iconic orange racks that hold a prestigious paper come to mind. It is unacceptable that the greatest distinction one can make between two parties is between T-shirts. That is a failure as a citizen and a student before anything else. It is disrespectful to those who try to further their cause in the marketplace of ideas. It is disrespectful to those who read the Alligator, and it is disrespectful to other columnists. The column ends with the following sentence: I felt power in lying to them about my voting status and felt power in not being part of their drama. This isnt high school. The cliques of the popular kids decide more than where the cool table is located now. If you cant be bothered to take enough time to make a difference during election season, its wrong to expect people to view your opinion on the election as valid. Enjoy the break, Gators.

FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Last week, I wrote a column about the Swamp Party. I outlined some of the suspicious and unethical behavior of the Swamp Party and its predecessor parties. This week, I would like to outline why the Swamp Party is dangerous to anyone in Student Government who has an opposing point of view, and I would also like to explain why minority organizations should stay far away from the Swamp Party. In the Summer of 2011, the Student Senate passed the predecessor, the Unite Party, at the time. According to Alligator archives, the passage of the act would grant the Senate president power to remove disruptive individuals from the chamber, give the judiciary committee power to kill legislation before it reached the Senate number of votes needed to approve certain motions. gave the majority the power to silence the minority. es than Unite did. It may be that Swamp is just as hostile to anyone with an opposing point of view, and that would be dangerous. A Senate with a massive budget of $17.5 million dollars and runaway majority power can be dangerous to all students. The really scary part is some of these people may very well go into politics. If anyone cares anything about the minority voice, he or she should stay away from the Swamp Party for that reason alone. to care. This is as true for minority parties as it is for minority organizations on campus. Every group has its own agenda, including the majority. The majority will pursue its own agenda until the minority compels the majority to take notice and act. I would like to draw on some analogies from UF history. The UF Institute of Black Culture became part of UF in 1971 after a tumultuous year of black student arrests, withdrawals, protests and sit-ins. The IBC was established as a direct result of those valiant student actions. In the face of racism, unity was established. The IBC proudly displays old Florida Alligator clippings detailing the history of struggle between the black Student Racism was met with a strong, nonviolent force, and racism was overcome. Another analogy would be that of the Asian experience on campus. In 2001, a fraternity held a party in which males were dressed as American GIs and females were dressed as Vietnamese prostitutes, according to an article by the Florida TimesUnion. According to Leah Villanueva, the current director of Asian Pacific Islander American Affairs at UF, in 2003, a rally was held after the fraternity held a similar Vietnamthemed party. Villanueva, who was present at the rally, said the Asian American Student Union called for certain reforms, including the establishment of The moments when we are the most upright, both as a Student Body and as a species, are when we are sensitive to what others are due. Very often, this requires reminding people about the needs and agendas of others. the minorities to submissively do the will of the majority. If the minorities are quiet and loyal to the majority, then the might require some shouting, and that might mean staying far away from the Swamp Party.

Noahs performance marked his third career triple-double. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterGators coach Kevin OSullivan isnt hitting the panic button yet. Hes been displeased with his teams results, but hes keeping things in perspective. Even though Florida (3-6) is losing streak since 2008 as it hosts Miami (9-0) this weekend, the team is managing to keep an optimistic outlook. Theres no sense to keep harping on a loss or keep harping on the mistakes, OSullivan said. There are positives. Losing is contagious, but also winning is as well. All it takes is one good game and everybody is starting to feel good about themselves and you get things rolling in the right direction. under OSullivan in 2008 on the heels of a 20-5 start. The Gators rebounded from that slump with a three-game winning streak. Three of Floridas six losses in 2013 have been in extra innings. The other three defeats have been by just one run, so the team believes success isnt far off. I think we need to improve and stay positive, OSullivan said. Theres not much we can do with whats already happened. Everyone knows weve been one pitch away in this ball game or one quality at-bat away in that ball game.

Actively engaged on both ends of the injured right shoulder, Floridas only senior ensured that would be the case. George notched her ninth double-double of the season as Florida put to rest its lategame demons on Thursday night, withstanding a late rally by Arkansas to win 6958 in the OConnell Center.

After picking up her fourth foul with 10:03 remaining, George returned to help seal the victory. Freshman Sydney Moss beat the shot clock with a pull-up jumper to give Florida a 57-55 lead after Arkansas tied the game on a layup by Keira Peak. George then scored on consecutive possessions, sparking an 11-1 run. bounds to go along with three assists, three blocks and two steals before being honored in a postgame Senior Night ceremony. Jennifer played like a senior, especially down the stretch, and really just anchored whatever was going on, it was going to go Floridas way, coach Amanda Butler said.Gators aim to halt losing skid LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterDespite the Southeastern Conference title race implications on the line in Floridas home matchup against Alabama on Saturday at noon in the OConnell Center, coach Billy Donovan is taking a cautious approach with forward Will Yeguete (right knee) and guard Michael Frazier II (concussion). Team doctors have cleared Yeguete and Frazier to play Saturday, but how much time both players will log off the bench is still uncertain. The winner of Saturdays contest will own the top spot in the Southeastern Conference standings with only two games remaining on the conference slate. Yeguete is questionable to face the Crimson Tide. Donovan will make a decision on Yeguetes return based on how the 6-foot7 junior responds to full-contact drills. My expectation on him going into the game is not very high, just because I havent seen him play, Donovan said. Obviously, hes got two days to practice, but I would be hard-pressed to believe hes going to be the same player he was when he went down with his injury. Itll probably take him some time to get back, but at least he can start working to get back in shape and get back in rhythm. Said Yeguete: Im not putting any pressure on myself. played 5-10 minutes, Id be happy with it. Since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Feb. 8 to remove bone chips in his right knee, Yeguete has missed No. 8 Floridas (22-5, 12-3 SEC) past six games. Without Yeguete, UFs second-leading rebounder with 6.3 rebounds per contest, the Gators have won the battle on the boards once in the past six games. After sitting out for nearly a month, Yeguete is excited to see the practice court. I feel like a little kid right now, he said. Its been a minute since I played with those guys and just be on the court and compete. But at the same time, Im not going to be 100 percent and not going to be able to go up and down for 30 minutes like a regular practice.

MAX MATTERNAlligator WriterFlorida senior Gabi Wiegand keeps last years Final Four game against Syracuse in the back of her mind. Wiegand lined up at the 8-meter line after a hard foul. As soon as the whistle blew, she sprinted forward and launched the ball into the back of the net for what seemed to be the go-ahead goal. With seconds to spare in overtime, Wiegand and her teammates celebrated after nearly pulling off the impossible, guaranteeing a spot in the national championship game. But a whistle was blown. Wiegands stick was checked and deemed illegal. The net at the end of her stick was too deep. The goal was taken away. The Orange went on to defeat the Gators 14-13 in double overtime. gand said referring to the Final Four match. And it being my stick that was illegal, thats something I keep in the back of my head and that pushes me through practice Coach Amanda OLeary added: It is what it is.

The Orange walked away with two wins in two matches against the Gators last year. Each victory came by one goal in extra time. The abrupt end to Floridas 2012 season has spawned the Gators 2013 slogan: unapplies in part to Syracuse because the team has something to prove. Wiegand, though, sees it in a different light. cuse because its more about us and how we Floridas undefeated 6-0 start to the 2013 campaign has proven promising.

ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterAfter yet another poor perfor mance on the mound, closer Johnny Magliozzi had enough. He brought Floridas pitching staff together for a meeting after Wednesdays extrainning loss to North Florida. Six pitchers combined to issue four walks, hit two batters and allow seven base runners on two-strike counts. Having pitchers extend innings has been a death sentence for an offense struggling with situational hitting. After the Gators took a 1-0 lead in the second on Friday against Florida Gulf Coast ace Ricky Knapp, Jonathon Crawford lost command in the sixth. The Friday night starter hit the No. 9 batter to lead off the inning and then issued a one-out walk one batter later. Coach Kevin OSullivan pulled Crawford and the Eagles Brooks Beisner hit a three-run homer two batters later off Daniel Gibson. Each time the Gators have taken a lead this year, their pitching staff seemingly falls apart. (We need to) let our hitters get comfortable in the box, because we really havent been doing that, Crawford said. Crawford gets another chance to improve his command when Florida hosts Miami tonight at 7. Hes expected to face more batters as OSullivan continues to increase his pitch count with each start. With Floridas bullpen at 55.2 innings through nine games, seeing a starter last past the sixth inning would be a welcome sight. UF starting pitchers have thrown just 31.1 innings in nine games. He got close to 80 pitches last time out, OSullivan said of Crawford. Hes getting close to that 100-pitch mark now. A longer outing wont be a guar antee. Crawford still has to hold up his end of the bargain a task every Florida pitcher has had trouble with this season. Just focus on attacking the hitters and let themselves get out, Crawford said. That in turn will help me get deeper into games. OSullivan held his own candid dugout meeting before his pitchers met separately following the loss to North Florida. The sixth-year coach acknowledges that he can only say so much. The rest is up to the players. We can have all the meetings we want, OSullivan said. Its pretty simple. We got to get the ball down and we got to pitch a little bit better. Miami Hurricanes starting rotation: Chris Diaz faced the Gators last season in relief in Coral Gables. A year later he faces them again, but as the Friday night starter at McKethan Stadium. The sophomore is 1-0 with a 0.75 ERA in two starts this year. Junior right-hander Javi Salas gets the nod for Saturday. He hasnt allowed an earned run in two starts this season. Left-hander Andrew Suarez makes his third career college start ronto Blue Jays ninth-round pick missed his entire freshman season due to Tommy John surgery.
