ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterTickets for tonights Accent Speakers Bureau show with Neil deGrasse Tyson, a nationally renown astrophysicist, ran out in 30 minutes. The free tickets were handed out at the Phillips Center for the Performstudents. There are no public-viewing tickets because they usually come from leftover student tickets. The event starts at 8 p.m. at the Phillips Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. Accent Chairman Josh Holtzman said he didnt expect the tickets to go so fast. We were all surprised by how quickly the tickets sold out, said the 22-year-old UF political science and history senior. But of course were sorry that there werent enough tickets for everyone to get in. Holtzman said he did not know exactly how many tickets were distributed, but the center has about 1,600 seats. However, he said, for those who didnt get tickets, the event will be recorded and projected on screens outside. In response to student concern about the lack of tickets, Holtzman said, some ticketing processes are out of Accents control. Were always interested in improving our operations and learning from our experiences, and after the show, we may re-evaluate some of the ticketing procedures to create a more equitable distribution. He said Accent does not approve of students selling the tickets, and he has advised his staff to monitor Craigslist and delete posts that solicit money for tickets. Dragana Tabakovic, a 21-year-old anthropology junior, received a ticket. Since its sold out, she said, Ill probably get there at 5 at the very latest.

The general manager of EndZone, 1209 W. University Ave., provided food and drinks for the VIP area of the beer and food sampling festival. This year, the City of Gainesville didnt allow the 16-year-old festival to return to Magnolia Parke, 4700 NW 39th Ave. Its a bummer, Campbell said. Things like this, theyre needed.

Arango said students can request rides to Emerson Hall and Classroom Building 105. All drop-off and pick-up locations are on Northwest First Avenue. The UF General Counsel approved the One More Block initiative Thursday, Arango said. He said the agency is working to fund three more SNAP vans at about $30,000 each to travel to three other locations north of University Avenue. Two of the three new vans would transport students behind Hillel, St. Augustine Catholic Church and next to Classroom Building 105. He hopes these vans and locations will be added by Summer B. We worked really hard because we saw there was a need in the Student Body, said Nightlife Navigators Chief of Staff Chris Ceresa. Arango said the initiative is part of his legacy as chairman.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 JORDAN ALBRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterAfter six years, Mihoko Tsutsumi is directing her last concert at UF tonight. The 53-year-old UF School of Music adjunct lecturer and director of the Mens Glee Club and Womens Chorale, will become the director of choral activities at the State University of New York at Oswego in the Fall. Her last concert is the annual UF Mens Glee Club and Womens Chorale Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. in the University Auditorium. It is free and open to the public. We are sad that she is leaving, said Beauty Kolenc, a 25-year-old public relations senior. But, we are really happy for her to have this opportunity. Kolenc is the public relations chairwoman for Womens Chorale and has been a member since Fall 2012. Apart from regular, classical choir music, the groups will perform music that ranges from African to Spanish and pop songs. The UF Symphony Orchestra will also perform. Visiting musician Satoko Someya will play the koto, a traditional Japanese stringed instrument, and UF School of Music faculty members Steven Thomas and Leslie Odom will play the cello and oboe, respectively. Russell Robinson, a School of Music faculty member, will debut a composition he has dedicated to Tsutsumi that Womens Chorale will sing. Its an exciting concert, Tsutsumi said.

Brett Johnson, 30, was taken to Shands at UF with 3 a.m. outside of All Star Sports Bar in the 4200 block of Southwest 13th Street, said ASO spokesman Art Forgey. Bystanders in line with Johnson helped control the bleeding and drove him to the hospital, Forgey said. By the time deputies arrived at the bar, Johnson was gone. As of Tuesday afternoon, investigators had not talked to Johnson about the incident because he was still in treatment, Forgey said. Because the case is still under investigation, Forgey could not provide any more information. Johnsons stabbing was the 65th incident at the bar that has required ASOs intervention since the beginning of the year, according to an ASO call list. Deputies have been called to the bar for various incidents such as noise complaints, grand theft auto and beverage and narcotics violations. Johnsons incident was the only reported stabbing at the bar. Bar owners could not be reached for comment.

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 2013Erin Winick / AlligatorTaking the Mic KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterAfter about three years spaying and neutering cats and dogs, Sandi Richmond said her organization is nearing a milestone. No More Homeless Pets, which offers discounted spaying and neutering, is approaching its 15,000th surgery. It began tallying when the organization started in late 2009. Richmond said she expects the organization to reach the goal no later than April 16. Spaying and neutering helps reduce the countys animal population, she said, and it lowers the number of animals that are euthanized. In February 2012, Richmond said, Alachua County Animal Services euthanized 438 animals. This February, it euthanized 25. Honey Langford, a 34-year-old Santa Fe College business supervision and management senior who volunteers at the clinic, said she was surprised by the statistics. If you just step back and think about that for a second, that is just a phenomenal number of animals to be able to spay and neuter, she said. dropped rate include animal rescue groups and the Hope Fund, which launched in February, Richmond said. Pets are expensive, Richmond said. In order to do the right thing and to save lives, even at our low people. Group sees 15,000 surgeriesLOC ALCity will revise the ordinancenance that dealt with alcoholic beverage sales permits for outdoor special events. In early 2012, a group of city staff determined the code didnt allow the city to issue such permits in most circumstances, City Attorney Nicolle Shalley wrote in an email to city staff March 7. During the March 21 City Commission meeting, an item that requested the revision of the ordinance to expand permits citywide was approved. Fazio and Black have been hosting Florida Beer Festivals for 20 years, after they attended a beer festival in San Francisco. They started in Orlando and brought the festival to Gainesville in 1997. It was an immediate hit, Fazio said. They host eight to 10 festivals a year around Florida in cities like Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Sarasota, which usually draw 2,000 to 3,500 people. For the price of admission, each festival features at least 100 different kinds of 2-ounce beer samples from distributors, suppliers and breweries. Fazio said he and Black also seek restaurants to provide free samples because they dont want people to drink all day without eating. Last year, Gainesville businesses like Beef O Bradys, Willys Mexicana Grill and Looseys participated in the festival. Fazio had hoped to bring the festival back this summer, but he said it will probably have to wait until next year, when the city is done revising the ordinance. BEER, from page 1 NATHALIE DORTONNEAlligator Contributing WriterAfter Joanna Galaris caught the eye of a UF law student at Karma Cream, he began to talk to her. He offered to walk her home, and later, he asked her to have sex. When she turned him down, he was outraged. He seemed to think that asking me to have sex with him was an acceptable thing, the 21-year-old UF anthropology senior said. I feel that a lot of college-age men are confused as to what permission is. Galaris is one of about 200 people expected to attend Gainesvilles Take Back The Night tonight to raise awareness about sexual violence. Take Back The Night is a nationwide event that often features marches, rallies and personal testimonies. Tonights event will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Turlington Plaza, but the march will start at 6 p.m. At 7 p.m., survivors and supporters will have the chance to share stories and support on the Reitz Union Colonnade. Event organizer Ashley Cortez, a victim advocate counselor at the Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center, said the event is larger than awareness. People are beginning to come to the realization that rape is not as black and white as what people previously thought, the 27-yearold said. Sexual assault doesnt always happen by a stranger. Its more than likely going to be someone you know and trust.Take Back The Night event to raise sexual violence awarenessThe event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. People are beginning to come to the realization that rape is not as black and white as what people previously thought.event organizer COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterMarissa Torres was told that getting a tattoo would keep her from donating blood for 365 days. Until Tuesday, blood donors who got a tattoo had to wait a year to donate. But now, Torres, a 19-year-old UF recreation, parks and tourism freshman, doesnt have to wait. She, and anyone else who was inked after Jan. 1, can donate blood to any LifeSouth Community Blood Center now. LifeSouth announced it was lifting the one-year deferral for donors with tattoos because of increased regulations on Florida tattoo parlors. Florida became the 30th state to pass a law tightening tattoo parlor restrictions. It went into effect Jan. 1, 2012. LifeSouth Director of Recruitment and Retention Galen Unold said LifeSouth had to wait a year for tattoo parlors to comply with the law and for the law to meet the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations requirements. Torres said that she will donate blood now that the deferral has been lifted. We shouldnt be punished for getting a tattoo, she said. the blood is.

When competing interests are at stake, women are better than men at consistently making fair decisions, according to a recent study from researchers at A.T. Still University in Arizona and McMaster University in Canada. The study consisted of about 620 Canadian board directors: 75 percent males and 25 percent females. The directors were tested on three factors that go into decision making: selfinterest, normative preference and complex moral reasoning. Although both genders scored the highest in complex moral reasoning or making consistently fair decisions Chris Bart, co-author of the study, said that women scored much higher than men. Even though the study showed women make better board members than men, Bart said, women are largely outnumbered on corporate boards a trend that UF student Jessica Trad said needs to change. Its unfair, the 18-year-old UF statistics freshman said. I think it should be equal. Donna Roberts, administrative assistant at UF Warrington College of Business Administration, said that its best to have a variety of board members when making decisions. I think its important for [women] to not undervalue their contributions to a company, she said.Women work fairly, study saysLIFESTYLE

Thats right: Important stock information can now be disclosure regulation that requires publicly traded companies to broadly disclose material information applies to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter the same way it applies to company websites, according to the report. Is this the age that were living in now an age that just allows a social media website with a 140-character limit make big announcements? A social media site, we might add, whose biggest accounts get hacked for hours? Facebook is not any better. We love Twitter, but it is not a place for serious business. Most social media are perfectly suitable methods for communicating with investors, but not if the access is restricted or if investors dont know thats where they need to turn to get the latest news, said George Canellos, acting director of the SECs Division of Enforcement, according to the Los Angeles Times. But, dude, are social media sites really suitable methods? There is some terrible stuff on Twitter. Never look at the trending topics because some of them are very stupid or very jarring. Big, grown-up businesses should not use Twitter to make news releases. Twitter is not the place for investor announcements. How did the SEC come to this masterful conclusion? It probed a post by report this information to investors through a news release or by 6.2 percent, according to the article. It was the only time Netpersonal or private. The company also didnt alert investors that the particular announcement would be made. Obviously, it resulted in higher shares. According to the Los Angeles Times, The SEC said it did not commence an enforcement action or accuse Hastings of wrongdoing because of the market uncertainty about the use of social media. Businesses should not use any social media site for grown-up reasons. Thats what news releases are for.Surprise! Politicians are self-interestedPresident Obama is creating a legacy just not for the countrys future. Obama is creating a legacy for himself. He wants to hes going to make people pay damn attention to him. Obama has created a new group called Organizing for Action as a way to promote his policy agenda now and after According to a McClatchy Newspapers article, however, some Democrats arent happy about the new organization and are wondering whether the president is in it for himself. Indeed, the presidents new organization has no plans to share money, resources or the priceless Obama email list with the Democratic National Committee or campaign committees that help elect members of Congress, governors or legislators, the article states. Gilda Cobb Hunter, a South Carolina legislator and a member of the DNC, said in the article, Theres only so much money to go around in Democratic circles. Theres a limited pool of resources. Why cant we strengthen one entity? Lets just keep in mind that Obama is not doing anything illegal or wrong here. In fact, hes not doing anything that any other politicians in his position with vast, nearly unlimited resources would do. The fact remains that most, if not all, politicians seek ofgans, they dont care about you, their district or the country at large. I am always amazed when I hear people talk about als who only focus on making money. In fact, some think most wealthy people are just self-interested actors who look to increase their shares of the pot (even though wealth is not a zero-sum game, but thats neither here nor there). Yet, when these same wealthy businessmen, lawyers or cally assume they are in it for higher interests such as a sense of public duty or to help the needy. But as economist James M. Buchanan Jr. stressed, politicians are humans like the rest of us. We should not only be cynical toward their motives, but we should automatically expect that they are in it for themselves. How do the largest companies receive special favors from the government? Because govcial interests and generally want to increase their purview of power, companies engage in rent-seeking behavior in which they attempt to curry these special favors and monopolistic rights. Indeed, it is a growing state that fosters more rent-seekence election outcomes that favor one company more than another. These activities and I cannot stress this enough are not unique to one party or politician. President Obama is just as guilty as President Reagan. Senator Elizabeth Warren is just as guilty as Senator Marco Rubio. It is the nature of the beast that is the state and its various institutions. Furthermore, one should also keep in mind that those atvastly more power than even the largest corporation. Governments have the power to wage war, to force citizens to pay taxes, to put people in prison for disobeying arbitrary rules and regulations and even to determine who should live or die. Anyone with humble or pure intentions would not dream of having such authority and control. Obamas display of self-interest in creating a legacy does not make him more or less human than any other politician. We are just fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of a politicians true nature.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 A few weeks ago, my roommates and I went to dinner to complain about our endless weeks and the massive amount of homework we had to look forward to. While we were waiting to sit, we saw a young woman breastfeeding her child in the corner of the room, and I remember thinking how precious the moment was. It wasnt long before a man approached the woman and asked her to stop the inappropriate and disgusting behavior. I thought he was joking, considering she had a blanket covering her entire upper body while she was feeding the baby. The man explained to her that he felt uncomfortable, especially in front of his 10-year-old son, and that she should feed her baby with a bottle in public. For a while, I didnt know what to say. I was speechless. I was astonished by the mans irrational behavior and his harsh tone toward the mother who, after all, was simply feeding her hungry baby. I think I stared for a while, with my jaw wide open in disbelief. Did this really happen? The woman quickly mumbled an apology, with a bright red face and eventually left the room. The man calmly took his seat again. There we were, my roommates, the man with his son and I, and the entire time, I couldnt shake the feeling someone should say something. Afterall, isnt it every womans right to feed her child in public even if she is breastfeeding? Unfortunately, I never had the chance to say anything to the man, as the hostess seated him soon after. I still regret it. Maybe it wasnt my place to interject, but I didnt want him to think his behavior was acceptable. Why did the man feel so uncomfortable in the situation to begin with? The answer dawned on me one day while I was reading about sexual citizenship in a book excerpt by Brenda Cossman, a professor at the University of Toronto. She talked about the different sexual expectations men and women face in society, and how those who do not conform to these expectations risk alienation. She argues good sexuality only exists in private spheres and bad sexuality in public. Women are often expected to be very private sexually, while men are allowed to be more open. Could it be the man perceived her breastfeeding as sexual? Maybe the fact that she was willing to expose her breast to her child under a blanket seemed unacceptable to him. When I was younger, women rarely wore cover-up in public while breastfeeding. Today, however, its unheard of for a woman to expose her breast while feeding her child. Instead, many women face discrimination for breastfeeding and have opted to feed their child with a bottle to avoid rude remarks. Recently, breastfeeding laws have swept the United States and the world to protect a mothers right to feed her child while at work or in public. For example, the National Conference of State Legislatures lists the various laws in regard to breastfeeding in each state in the U.S. In 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that requires employers to give employees a break to nurse a child until he or she is about 1 year old. Some of the laws require some public locations to have labeled areas for breastfeeding and diaper changing that are not in bathrooms. Although these steps make it easier for women to feed their children, it seems crazy the government has to enforce these rights. Many people already criticize the government for becoming too involved in our personal life, but what if we cant make these decisions on our own? Do we need our government to regulate what is considered sexual in our society and what is just human nurture? In general, I think our society has become very desensitized in regard to sexuality. The idea that sex sells is very common in advertisements, and shows like Teen Mom discuss sex very openly. Lets not forget music lyrics that openly call women sluts and b----es and have little moral ground with regard to our sexuality. Breasts are in most advertisements today anyway, so how is it suddenly indecent when they feed an infant? In case people dont remember, breasts are meant to do that job not to sell fast-food burgers. We worry so much about our reputation and our outside appearance in public, but what about how the public portrays us in the media? The Killing Us Softly videos by Jean Kilbourne are in their fourth installment, but ized in media. Society has become so hypersexualized that its hard to tell the difference between whats sexual and whats not. People are afraid to discuss sex, but they will go home and research all their questions because they are afraid their sexuality is too public. Women who are sexually experienced are called sluts, but we no longer wonder why advertisements use women to sexualize products. I hope this debate about public breastfeeding wont spiral out of control, and our government wont interfere more. I hope when I have children, I will be allowed to breastfeed them if I want to, and I wont have to follow The Rules of Nurture. I would like to dedicate my essay to the woman at the restaurant who was openly disrespected and judged. And to the man, who obviously had no manners whatsoever, your behavior truly was inappropriate and disgusting. Carlotta Krause is an international studies junior at UF.The debate about public breastfeedingGuest columnCarlotta KrauseSpeaking Out Stop and think about it: We constantly use electricity throughout our daily lives. Whether we are texting on our iPhones, watching TV or lighting our homes, energy is integral to our way of life. how the lights turn on. So, where does all of this electricity come from? According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Americas top three sources of electricity in 2011 were coal, with 42 percent; natural gas, with 25 percent; and nuclear, with 19 percent. Nuclear is the only of these sources that emits zero carbon. It is disheartening that more than half of our electricity generation is produced from fuels that have damaging effects on our climate. If we continue down this path, our children and their children will be left with a planet barely comparable to the one we inherited. It takes a long time to reverse the effects of carbon emissions. Our generation knows we need to begin to solve the problem. Nuclear power is a viable solution. As engineering students, we see nuclear power as a way to contribute to society as professionals and as citizens. We welcome the challenge. We embrace it. It is our future. What is so great about nuclear power? To start, nuclear power plants are a major step toward achieving zero carbon emissions and reducing background radiation in the atmosphere. Obviously, nuclear plants emit less carbon into the air. But you may not know that nuclear power plants that meet government regulations release less radiation into the air than coal plants, wrote Alex Gabbard, a principal investigator for the Oak Ridge National Laboratorys nuclear energy program, in a report. Additionally, nuclear fuel has a much higher energy density than fossil fuel. One uranium fuel pellet about will produce the same amount of electricity as one ton of coal. Opponents argue that nuclear energy produces nuclear waste. Remember, however, that these used nuclear fuel pellets are extremely compact. These pellets are in solid form, so they are controllable and do not escape into the atmosphere. We cannot, however, control carbon dioxide after it is released into the atmosphere from fossil fuel power plants. Once carbon is released, there is nothing we can do to protect the environment or ourselves. Remember, too, that the so-called nuclear waste is more like an untapped resource. According to the World Nuclear Association, more than 95 percent of used fuel from nuclear waste is made up of uranium that can be recycled and reused to generate electricity. Fossil fuels lack this quality. Other countries, such and reuse their used nuclear fuel, using technology that America could use yet we still do not recycle. We cannot afford to use fossil fuels as our majority source of electricity. Although some other zero-emission energy sources, such as wind and solar powers, can be used in small quantities, they have low energy-density and are quite expensive. We cannot wait for them to become cost-effective before we deploy large quantities of zero-emission electricity from nuclear power. We need to embrace nuclear energy now. Expanding our use of nuclear power to generate electricity would ensure energy sustainability and, perhaps more important, maintain a clean and livable planet for generations to come. The future engineers of our generation are ready to make this happen. Nicholas Yap and Diego Garcia are nuclear engineering students at UF. Diego Garcia is a University Research Scholar and serves as President of the American Nuclear Society Student Section at UF.

The ad caught Abe Carryls eye while he browsed the UF Class of 2014 Facebook page two weeks ago. The 21-year-old UF information systems and operations management senior said he prefers Market Loco to Craigslist because of its proximity and how easy it is to use.

HAYDEN MANUELAlligator Contributing WriterKeith Gerber started breeding maggots a week ago to prepare for the BugFest. He hopes to have a couple hundred ready for maggot art. The 20-year-old UF entomology sophomore and president of UFs entomology club was preparing for todays free open house hosted by the entomology department from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Steinmetz Hall, 970 Natural Area Drive. est at the Florida Museum of Natural History. For maggot art, people will dip maggots in paint and put them on paper to trace their paths. There will also be cockroach races and cricket-spitting, a competition to see who can spit a cricket the farthest. Gerber said the idea of BugFest is to recruit high school and college students to the entomology department. This year, BugFest will be seminar-style, with presentations every 10-15 minutes. Insects are a daily part of your life, no matter what you try to do about it, Gerber said. The entomology clubs secretary, Jade Hilliard, said the highlight of this years Mardi Gras-themed event will be the arthropod petting zoo, which will consist of a tarantula, a scorpion, Madagascar hissing roaches, crickets and a giant African millipede. This year, weve actually gotten a lot of insects instead of just our typical tarantulas or roaches, said the 21-year-old UF entomology senior. Now we have mantis and beetles and things like that, so weve expanded our little zoo.Tarantula, scorpion available for petting at BugFest todayThe free event is at Steinmetz Hall This year, weve actually gotten a lot of insects instead of just our typical tarantulas or roaches.Jade HilliardUF entomology senior ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterBeginning July 1, the standards to qualify for the Bright Futures scholarships will become more strict. They will take effect on the high school class of 2014; however, the University of South Floridas analysis obtained by the Florida College Access Network looked at how the changes would affect current recipients if they were held to the same standards. About 60 percent of Hispanic students and about 75 percent of black students currently eligible for Bright Futures would no longer qualify if held to the new standards. By comparison, about 40 percent of white students and 40 percent of Asian students who have a Bright Futures scholarship would not be eligible, according to the analysis. Students will need to score an 1170 on the SAT or a 26 on the ACT. The current standards require a 1020 or 22. Kate Pivacek, a UF 20-year-old journalism sophomore, said students stay in state because they have Bright Futures, but reAccording to the analysis, about 87 percent of Hispanic freshmen met the current standards, but about 35 percent would qualify after July 1. About 2,700 black freshmen met minimum criteria for Bright Futures for Fall 2012; however, 650 would meet the minimum criteria set for Fall 2014. Those standardized tests arent a good indicator for who deserves scholarships, said Ciara Lepanto, a 19-year-old UF English sophomore. UF would see between 65 percent and 90 percent of its students still qualifying, compared with other Florida schools, which would have less than 25 percent of their freshman eligible for Bright Futures, according to the analysis.

CAITLIN RADDATZAlligator Contributing WriterThink twice about getting a black henna tattoo because it may not be temporary after all. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns that people have reported severe reactions, such as blistering, loss of skin pigmentation and permanent scarring, to henna tattoos. Some reactions, which may occur immediately after or weeks after getting inked, have caused some people to seek medical care. Traditional henna is made from brown color and has been used for and wool. In the last decade, henna has been used recreationally, said TaBlack henna is different from traditional henna. Though the ingredients, either a mixture of henna and other elements or simply hair dye, are used to create darker and longerlasting tattoos, the FDA said its potentially harmful. With black henna tattoos, weve been made aware that theyre using coal-tar hair dye, Ward said. Coal-tar hair dye contains pphenylenediamine, which can cause severe skin reactions. A tattoo artist may use a PPD-containing hair dye alone. By law, PPD is not permitted in cosmetics intended to be applied to the skin, according to an FDA report. While states have jurisdiction over professional practices such as tattooing and cosmetology, that oversight differs from state to state. Some states have laws and regulations for temporary tattooing, while others dont. In Florida, black henna tattoos are legal, said Molly Kellogg, a press secretary for the Florida Department of Health. She said she doesnt believe theres legislation about black henna tattoos. Joe Altizer, manager of Inked Tattoo, 1410 NW 13th St., said the shop offers the all-natural, brownred henna, but its not something his staff does often. I wouldnt do henna thats not naturally derived, he said. I think making. Before getting any kind of tattoo, he suggests people research. The more education you have, the better decisions you make, he said. To his knowledge, there is no accreditation for henna. Raevon Rolle, an 18-year-old UF public relations freshman, is not a stranger to henna tattoos. She got high school. Now, Rolle said, she always asks to make sure artists dont use black henna on her skin.FDA warns of severe reactions to black henna tattoos Those standardized tests arent a good indicator for who deserves scholarships.Ciara LepantoUF English sophomore

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterThe Santa Fe College Spring Arts time at its 44th annual event this weekend. Event organizer Kathryn Lehman said participants will be able to buy several types of beer and wine at two small areas at the festival, which will be Saturday and Sunday downtown at Northeast First Street and the Thomas Center lawn. The festival will sell alcohol at the event to put the money raised toward scholarships offered to Santa Fe College students, Lehman said. Its an opportunity to help, as funding issues have changed, she said. Thats our eye on the prize. Serving alcohol at outdoor events on public property goes against a city ordinance, so special approval from the Gainesville City Commission was required to do so. City Commissioner Lauren Poe said its not uncommon for organizers of large outdoor events to request an exception to the ordinance. The purpose of the process, he said, is to check the outdoor environment where the alcohol will be offered. Large events are a bit unusual, so thats why we tend to consider it on a case-by-case basis, Poe said. We want to make sure its still family friendly. City staff is drafting ordinances that would change the outdoor alcohol sales ordinance to make the special events permits process easier. Alcohol debuts at festivalLIFESTYLE ERIKA OAKVIKAlligator Contributing WriterFour percent of American college graduates wish they had more sex while they were in college. Thats nothing compared to the 48 percent who wish they had studied more, according to a poll published Monday by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair. Amanda Whitaker, a 19-year-old UF business administration freshman, said she thinks studying should be a top priority, but many students dont exert their full energy. Youre paying for school, she said. It needs to be important, and you need to spend a lot of time on it. The poll also reported that about 40 percent of American college graduates wish they networked more while in college. I would say that [networking] is critical, said Ann Christiano, a UF public relations professor. I see a tremendous difference in terms of job placement between students who have built those networks while they are in college and students who have not. The poll, which was conducted at the CBS News interviewing facility, randomly sampled 861 adults nationwide by phone from March 1-3. In addition, the poll found that 68 percent of college graduates could not name the current president of their alma mater, and 86 percent of Americans dont care if a friend or colleague was a member of a fraternity or sorority in college. A lot of people dont care about campus politics, Brent Smith, a 28-year-old UF alumnus, said.

See story, page 16.Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffJunior center Patric Young (4) attempts a shot during Floridas 79-59 loss to Michigan in the Elite Eight on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterARLINGTON, Texas When asked after Floridas Elite Eight loss to Michigan on Sunday whether he would return to UF for his senior season or bolt to the NBA, center Patric Young was noncommittal. Im just going to talk to my family and do whatever makes me happiest, Young said. Well see from there. If I decide to come back, Im going to work my butt off and make sure we can have another spectacular season. Even if Young decided to forgo his senior year and declare for the NBA Draft, Florida would still boast a deep roster heading into 2013-14.

We have had struggles in the past, especially with two outs, Taylor Gushue said. To get those three runs with two outs tonight was huge for us. It was a good step in the right direction for our team.

PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Sydney Moss enjoys nothing more than ruining the day of opposing players and fans, something she has made a habit of doing during the Gators run to the Final Four of the WNIT. The freshman guard is averaging 19.5 points per game best on the team during Floridas four wins. Included during that span is a careerhigh 28-point performance to help FlorFlorida International. But Moss especially relished her opportunity against James Madison. Dealing with a raucous environment and a persistent group of hecklers, she scored a game-high 27 points during Floridas 85-80 victory. The win propelled the Gators into since 2000. Its really exciting going to someone elses court and hearing the fans silent, Moss said. JMU kind of had a huge fan base. Just hearing them after we won the buzzer going off just silence. The only thing you could hear really was our fans doing the Gator chomp. Coach Amanda Butler has looked to instill aggression in Moss throughout the season. Moss showed glimpses of her potential during the regular season, notching double-doubles against North Carolina State, Vanderbilt and South Carolina. dence and consistency until the Gators reached the postseason. Shes matured a ton, and shes learning a ton, Butler said. That process is certainly not over, but I think there has been a tremendous gap in where she started mentally and what she expected of herself and what she knew about herself as a competitor to where shes at now. Moss on-court demeanor has shifted noticeably. Rather than settling for jumpers or disappearing for stretches, outcome of games on both ends of the In addition to leading the team in scoring, Moss has grabbed 8.8 rebounds per contest during the WNIT run. tournament so far, senior Jennifer George said.

Moss has averaged 8.8 rebounds per game during the WNIT. WOMENS BASKETBALLFreshman fueling Floridas WNIT run ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterCoach Tim Walton does not announce probable starting pitchers before each game. But if he did, Hannah Rogers name would appear more often than not. Since Florida defeated Alabama 8-4 on March 6, Rogers has gotten the ball 11 times in the Gators 16 games. The junior right-hander has logged 70 percent of Floridas innings in Southeastern Conference play. Rogers says her arm does not get tired, but after pitching in all but two games during the past threeand-a-half weeks, anyones arm would feel fatigued. The reason Walton keeps putting the junior out on a 1.12 ERA 0.66 points better than any of her fellow UF hurlers. In SEC play, the difference between Rogers and the rest of the staff is even more drastic. Her ERA is 0.84. The next play, so Waltons strategy has worked so far. But the Gators still have another 18 games on the schedule. Rogers leads the staff in every statistical category, but the other pitchers have not had a chance to prove themselves, especially during conference play. Haeger has only three starts against SEC opponents. Tennessee on March 16. She gave up three runs and was saddled with the loss. Sophomore Alyssa Bache has seen even less time in the circle. She has pitched just 5.1 innings in conference play, including four in Floridas 8-7 win against Ole Miss on Sunday. Before getting the ball on Sunday, she had pitched only 2.1 innings of relief since March 8. When Bache but pitched four scoreless innings until steady rain robbed her of her grip and footing. Waltons squad is a serious contender to win the SEC Tournament and make a deep run into the Womens College World Series. But to do so, the Gators need Rogers at full strength.
