Having additional space outside will be a good thing, she said. Even though there is a ton of seating inside, it still gets packed, she said. Eric Salaices agrees. Seating outside is limited, and having extra space will be useful, said the 21-year-old UF biology senior. Salaices said he was glad that the construction was being done during the summer so that students would be able to enjoy the seating during the cooler months. Because the Hub was the university bookstore until 2003, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said changes are being made to accommodate students in such a centrally located area.

Beatle aide Peter Brown replied on McCartneys behalf, telling Hendrix the following day that McCartney was on vacation and not expected back for another two weeks. The invitation came at an extremely awkward moment for the Beatles bassist.

Jimi and Miles. Fans of the late trumpet and guitar masters have long known that Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix had been making plans to record together in the year before Hendrixs sudden death in 1970. But less attention has been paid to the bass player they were trying to recruit: Paul McCartney, who was busy with another band at the time. This tantalizing detail about the super group that never was jazz standout Tony Williams would have been on drums is contained in an oft-overlooked telegram that Hendrix sent to McCartney at The Beatles Apple Records in London on Oct. 21, 1969.

the club at 9 p.m. At the previous two rallies, Lavery said, music was played from an iPod. UF alumnus Doug Trovillion, the owner of Kona Dog, said he decided to join the rally after hearing about the success of the March rally. The environment is ripe for people from larger areas where there are a lot of food trucks, said Trovillion, who got inspiration for his food truck menu after being stationed in Hawaii with the Marine Corps. The long wait times that marked the the past due to more vendors and an earlier starting time, Lavery said. On the city level, Commissioner Lauren Poe said the community development committee is considering reducing restrictions on mobile food vendors within city limits due to the popularity of the rallies. He said research into the impacts on established brick-and-mortar restauwill be considered in the discussion. Its obviously something thats been popular in the community, Poe said. Lavery agreed that residents are backing the concept of making food truck rallies a regular event. He said the rallies have created a wider acceptance of food trucks in town and have inspired others to start their own food trucks locally. This is a really cool thing that Gainesville wants, Lavery said. And the need for seating areas have changed as well. Regardless of the Florida heat, Orlando said he thinks students will make good use of the space. Its become a really popular gathering spot for students, mainly because of all the dining options in that vicinity, he said. And having outside seating gives students the option of enjoying the outdoors and fresh air.

UF ranked 25th on a list of affordable colleges with a high return on investment released by www.affordablecollegesonline. org. The website reviewed 875 fully accredited colleges with a total four-year tuition cost of less than $40,000. The only other Florida school to make the top 50 was EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University, which has a campus in Daytona Beach. To calculate return on investment, the website subtracted the cost of each institution from the expected 30-year salary earned with a degree from the institution. UFs return on investment was $351,000. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the value of a UF degree stems from the idea that UF students are seen as invaluable in many industries. A lot of companies look for UF graduates because they are well rounded, innovative and hardworking, he said. UF has been recognized for its value before. sonal Finance magazine ranked UF third in value for in-state students.

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterA Gainesville man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly took his girlfriends car keys and physically restrained her from leaving his house. Christopher Lee Holtz, 18, was arrested on charges of simple battery and false imprisonment related to dating violence. At about 8 p.m. Tuesday, Holtz and his girlfriend of three years were arguing in his front yard in the 1600 block of SE Third Ave., according to the report. Ira Keene, 49, who lived at the house with Holtz, said the couple was arguing about money and a credit card. He said Holtz had deleted the womans bank account. Just before the girlfriend arrived at the house, Keene said, he questioned Holtz regarding some borrowed stereo equipment Keene said Holtz couldnt account for. He was in a bad mood, Keene said. When Holtzs girlfriend tried to leave in her car, Holtz grabbed her keys and refused to give them back, according to the police report. She continued to try to get into her car, but Holtz repeatedly blocked her path. When she started kicking Holtz, he wrapped his arms around her and forced her inside his house. He said he didnt want the argument to disturb the neighbors, according to the report. Holtzs girlfriend tried to escape several times, but Holtz prevented her from leaving. Keene was in the backyard when he heard the sound of glass shattering. The woman had broken a window next to the front door in an attempt to leave the house, according to the report. Holtz was arrested at about 9 p.m. and booked into the Alachua County Jail, where he remained as of press time with a bond of $20,000.

The season will feature six musicals, including Mamma Mia! and Hello, Dolly!; banjoist Bela Fleck; a cappella group Straight No Chaser and a UF alumnas new opera, The Red Silk Thread, according to UFPAs website. The selection process began about two years ago, UFPA Director Michael Blachly wrote in an email. Contemporary, pop, jazz, rock and blues artists book in a shorter time, Blachly said, so UFPA is still looking to add those genres to the season. UF students respond well to Broadway musicals, dance companies and world performances, public relations associate Todd Taylor wrote in an email. We also think students will be excited about Straight No Chaser and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Taylor said. Blachly said 28 of the 66 artists are repeat visitors to UF. Students can purchase a single ticket to each UFPA event for $10, excluding musicals. Tickets for musicals are $20 each for students.

ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing WriterFacebook users who declare their love online may have a harder time getting over a breakup. Steve Whittaker, a psychology professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, headed a team of researchers that found one-third of people cannot bring themselves to delete them to suffer for a longer period of time. The study involved interviews with 24 people who went through valued digital and physical possessions that related to a recent breakup, Whittaker wrote in an email. He then evaluated their coping strategies. The study also found those who decide often regret it because they may want to look back on them. Still, some worry if their exes come back around, they may not forgive them for removing the pictures. A relationship change is one of those milestones featured on Facebook, and though its painful at the time, if the relationship ended nicely, you may want to cherish it and learn from it, said UF social media specialist Bruce Floyd. But I can see there are certain circumstances such as an abusive relationship where you may want to get rid of it. Some of the participants in the study admitted to immediately deleting their ex in order to cope with the sudden heartbreak. I know a lot of friends who have to delete their ex off their Facebook because it hurts to see them out living their life all happy . while youre all sad and depressed, said Genesis Lara, a 21-year old UF history junior. Researchers proposed an application that could automatically detect anything related to a relationship and delete it or at least store it away just in case of a second chance. If Facebook creates some sort of delete application, I think there should be an undo function that remembers those changes so that they can get those memories back, Floyd said.Br8kups hard to deal with on Facebook, study shows

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 We all know the drill. You see an acquaintance from afar. You dont really feel like talking to him, so you pull out your cellphone and feign interest in it. You keep your eyes glued to the screen so you dont make eye contact with the person youre avoiding. Once youre at a safe distance, the relief sets in that youve dodged the proverbial bullet that is face-to-face interaction. Im guilty of this action on a daily basis, but upon phone as a crutch for avoiding human interaction is simply unhealthy. Our minds seem to be reprogramming themselves to require visual stimuli beyond what is physically in front of us. If a real conversation pauses, it has become a knee-jerk reaction to pull out our phones and look at them until one of us thinks of something else to say. Cellphones have gone from an accessory for communication to our main mode of communication a fact that I believe to be a problem. We are forgetting the importance of real, live conversation. True, unscripted and genuine conversing is going by the wayside while text messaging is becoming our main tool for communication. Think about the last time you said something you regretted in a face-to-face conversation, even if it was just something like a you-had-to-be-there story that no one found interesting. If youre anything like me, it probably wasnt too long ago that you said something you wish you could take back. in person is real, spontaneous and rich. In my opinyou have an abundance of real, live interaction. Real conversations leave no time for editing, deleting or molding the perfect statement. All of these perks to texting are likely reasons why most of us prefer to use this electronic method to verbal communication. actual conversations with the people around them. Regional Transit System looking down at screens. And if, God forbid, someone does try to strike up a conversation, were likely to assume that that person is either crazy or must have forgotten his or her cellphone at home. Couples at dinner spend more time scrolling through their Facebook news feeds than carrying on conversation with one another. It is time for a change. Throughout our lifetimes, the technology of digital devices has expanded from practically nonexistent to a simply unavoidable commodity. Through the accessibility of these devices, we have created a world of screens. Our obsession with, and perhaps even addiction to, cell phones and Internet access has created an environment where so much is said, but very little is heard, and our real life relationships are suffering because of it. Use your phone as a tool for communication, an accessory to your arsenal, not a crutch for avoidance. Next time you go out to eat with friends or a Your phone is not a baby. Youre allowed to leave it alone with the windows up, I promise. Check your Facebook once in the morning and once at night, regardless of how boring the people around you may seem. If you see an old acquaintance, dont pull out your phone to avoid the conversation. Just say hello. Seriously, try it its really not that scary. Use Facebook, Twitter and text messaging to schedule face-to-face interaction just dont say face-to-face interaction, or people will think youre strange, and stop and smell the roses you dont always have to Instagram them. Patrick Ryan is a UF English senior. His column appears on Thursdays. Put your cell phones down, peopleColumnIn one month, the Supreme Court will decide Fisher v. University of Texas, a case that has the potential to dramatically alter the college admissions process. In 2008, Abigail Fisher was denied admission to the University of Texas at Austin. She now argues that her minority applicants violated her 14th Amendment rights. The University of Texas appealed to precedent: in 2003, the Supreme Court plicants in university admissions was permissible in the name of pursuing diversity. However, that decision may soon be overturned. Even if the Supreme Court does not overturn its past ruling, the underlying question still remains: to what extent should race and ethnicity be considered in college admissions, if at all? Does a difference in appearance directly indicate different and unique ways of thinking? Probably not. I would argue that two individuals from the same socioeconomic background are much more similar than their racial differences may suggest. To achieve a truly diverse student body, admission preferences should instead be given to applicants who strive to succeed in the face of socioeconomic disparity. This sort of inclusiveness lends itself to both cultural and socioeconomic diversity and to social mobility, while upholding racial and ethnic equality. Some have argued that the sudden exclusion of racial and ethnic categorization may result in a harmful demographic redistribution of college students. When the University of California was forced this initially led to a large increase in the number of Asian students and a decline in the number of other minority students. However, as of late, the numbers have shown the reverse: under this meritocracy, all minority groups have seen increased enrollment. It is clear that pursuit of racial and ethnic diversity and equality. A meritocracy evaluates character, not color. Race and ethnicity should not be blanketing characteristics in college admissions. To foster diversity, admission preferences should only be given in cases of socioeconomic disparity; race itself should never differentiate applicants. The current evidence suggests that there is injustice within the system, but a correction to this may come as soon as June.

ITS OPEN MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterSpring cleaning is a phrase that most dread hearing, but for Gainesville residents, the process cient, green way. In an effort to provide an environmentally friendly cleaning service to Gainesville, Mary Moore decided to create Green Clean Homes. She noticed Gainesville locals bringing reusable bags to grocery stores and residents using bicycles instead of cars. After reading some articles on an entrepreneurship website, she realized Gainesville didnt have a green cleaning service. So, she opened her unique Moore decided Green Clean Homes would be a service that offers environmentally friendly cleaning practices along with a luxurious experience. With everyone wanting to go green, I thought it would be a need here (in Gainesville), Moore said. Moore explained that she had been doing her part to help the environment long before it was the popular thing to do. Living in St. Augustine, she would take a weekly trip to the St. Johns River to pick up trash. Nowadays, Moore encourages people to reuse water bottles, carpool when possible and pay closer attention to water and light usage. Starting (this business) has sort of regenerated my passion for wanting to be environmentally friendly and to be as green as I can, she said. Moore got the idea in early April, and by April 24, it was an completed for this to happen. decision to do it, Moore said. After I debated for a couple of weeks on if I should do it and if it would made the decision. The second step for Moore was researching trademarked names there wasnt another business that went by the same exact name. After that, she went on www. sunbiz.org to purchase the name. The fourth step was going to the City of Gainesville and registering Green Clean Homes as a business. Reporting the opening to the local newspaper is a requirement by the city, and from there a website was started, along with the creation of business cards and other methods of advertising. Green Clean Homes cleans ofJonesville, Newberry and Alachua counties. Employee Maisie Johnson, who also works for Moores Aloha Pet Sitting and Dog Walking company, is excited to work for a busiGainesville. (It is) pretty neat that I get to Johnson said. I had never heard of green cleaning businesses before, so I think this is a really great idea for the area. The company uses eco-friendly products to clean, but that is only part of what it does to stay environmentally friendly. In addition, Moore says recycling and avoiding paper usage is important, too. That is why her employees use recycled newspapers to clean mirrors and other glass surfaces. Moores business provides extras such as aromatherapy oil diffusion and turndown service on linens.

This weeks What To Watch movie combines them both. Directed by the over-the-top Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby is as visually stunning as youd expect. Unlike the next few weeks upcoming releases, its the perfect summer date movie. And in what seems like a Hollywood miracle, the movie seems to follow the book quite well. It seems weird for a movie set in the early 1900s where jazz ran rampant, but it works. Especially in the hotel scene with Myrtle: The bass drop seems 100 percent on target. The soundtrack brings something for the guys, while the movies story will draw in all the females. Running at two hours and 22 minutes, The Great Gatsby is rather long. The last hour of the movie drags on to the point where you realize the producer could have cut about 30 minutes and there would still be a complete story. With that being said, The Great Gatsby is a worthy way to kick off your summer moviegoing.What To Watch This Week: Gatsby Movies Moore Green Clean Homes provides eco-friendly cleaning options

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Since guys have an orgasm during most sexu al encounters, how does a woman know if shes truly good at sex and her skills are up to par? Dear Friend, There is no way to know how good you are in bed. Surprise! Everyone has lied about the quality of his or her sexual encounters at least once. Women fake or gasms and men fake interest. With all of this pretending scored, there is no way to know. Even if he does con fess that you rocked his world leaving a permanent woman to top you you would still have to trust that opinion. Trust your gut and dont overthink this. Youre not a stripper or a show dog. Do what you want in bed, and if there is no chemistry between you and whomever youre boning, then hit it and quit it. Dear Mediocre Advice, My partner and I have been going out a lot lately, but he still wont call me his. This has been going on for months. What should I do to let him know this bothers me? Dear Friend, Call him out on it. Dont pretend to be OK with something youre not, because it will come back to bite you in the ass. Youre not asking for too much: You need lationship. Whether this is a deal-breaker situation or something you can come to a compromise on, you need to commu nicate with him. If you dont come to a another persons needs. Dear Friend, Your friends lied. Being the nice guy is a bad thing. Nice guy refers to someone you like, but are in no way romantically interested in and proba bly never will be. This cursed name is only used to soften the blow of rejec tion, but guys arent complete dum mies. Guys know being called nice means they have no shot with the person who deems them nice guys. In return, they mistakenly take this for Id like you if you were more of an asshole. You dont need to be an as shole; you just have to accept the fact that not every girl you like will recipro cate the feeling. Dear Mediocre Advice, A lot of my girl friends say Im a nice guy and I get defensive. They say its not a bad thing, but how can it be a good thing?

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 KATHLEEN BOYLEAlligator Staff WriterWorld of Beer is the newest bar in Newberry that boasts more than 500 bottles and 40 drafts from around the globe. After its grand opening Monday, May 6, this watering hole was christened into, and perhaps now leads the ranks of, the top places to satisfy a thirsty, variety-craving beer palate. Courtney Girgis, a 27-year-old third-year UF art history graduate student, was more than impressed by the World of Beer scene. I cannot believe how many beers they have to offer here, she said, nearly shouting through the loud volume of Saturday nights copious crowd. The menu is page after page long of beers I had never, ever heard of Im so glad they give descriptions of almost all of them! Girgis certainly was not exaggerating, for even the most critical craft beer snob will surely be challenged by the delectable selection of pale ales, lagers, malts and pilsners served. Combine this spread with a stage for live music, an outdoor events, and World of Beer nails the atmosphere for a perfect hang spot. World of Beer is located about seven miles west of campus in the Tioga Town Center. Never fear, this only adds to its charm a close yet clean break from the Midtown and downtown shenanigans is well worth a cab fare. Impressive turnout on Saturday night at new World of Beer BeerAlex Catalano / Alligator StaffAside from the wide variety of beers at Tioga Town Centers new World of Beer location, you have the option to play an enlarged version of Jenga while waiting for food from one of many restaurants that is delivered right to you at the bar or outside patio area. Check out wobusa.com for upcoming live music, events and photos. The menu is page after page long of beers I had never, ever heard of Im so glad they give descriptions of almost all of them!Courtney GirgisUF art history graduate student In honor of American Craft Beer Week from May 13-19, this is for those of you in need of a solid beerhopping guide that lends world-class variety while keeping you closer to campus. The following list should provide a good start for such ventures. One thing to note: locals in Midtown, the two swelteringly scuzzy blocks of debaucherous ground near Library West, are missing. Let this land reign as the destination for ultradomestic, albeit inexpensive, taps and bottles.House of Beer19 W. University Ave. Located on the same block as Stubbies & Steins, HOB offers more than 40 taps and has great deals throughout the week. Hoggetowne Ale Works3454 W. University Ave. Want to take a stab at creating your own brew? The folks at Hoggetowne Ale Works have all of the supplies and insight youll need. Best local spots to grab a beerSwamp Head3140 SW 42nd Way Cottonmouth still holds as my favorite drink of choice. The tasting room closes super early but is usually crowded and lets you mingle among brewing barrels.Local Brewery: Downtown: Northwest and Southwest:Stubbies & Steins9 W. University Ave. More than 10 years old and dubbed Gainesvilles premier destination for beer, Stubbies & Steins offers substantial competition to World of Beers selection, with nearly 400 bottles and 24 draft choices available. They also offer eclectic art painted on the walls, as well as kickass fries that are oh so good at the end of the night. Hogans 2327 NW 13th St. and 5156 SW 34th St. They also have an international beer club: Complete your punch card to earn a free T-shirt that will make all your frat friends jelly.Tipples2440 SW 76th St. #110 bring the best bottle to the next BYOB.Brass Tap3833 SW Archer Road, Building B This spot opened within the year, and offers a great atmosphere similar to that of downtown. Worth a visit if you need a change of scenery. Parking is limited, and the surrounding areas are notorious for ticketing, though, so be prepared to park and walk.The Queens Arms Pub5323 SW 91st Terrace I love this spot. Nestled in the village of Haile Plantation, the Queens Arms Pub reincarnates a traditional Mediterranean pub environmentthink of it as a mini Euro retreat. Tall Pauls10 SE Second Ave. This bar and brewery has quickly become one of Gainesvilles most popular night life spots. Check it out if youre in the mood for brew and old school bar games.Home Brewing:

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Assistant coach Erica LaGrow advised the Gators on playing in a domed environment. See story, page 20. MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator WriterThe Gators will soon have a chance for revenge. The No. 1 Florida womens tennis team goes head-to-head with No. 15 Duke at 10 a.m. on Friday in the NCAA Round of 16 in Urbana, Ill. The Blue Devils swept the Gators 4-0 in the regular season, making it one of Floridas only two losses during the 2013 season. Despite Floridas loss to Duke in February, coach Roland Thornqvist said facing Dukes lineup for the NCAA match will be a different challenge. The fact that Duke is in the Round (of) 16 is just a remarkable achievement, Thornqvist said. With four scholarship players and a soccer player [Nicole Lipp] cult it is to be down two points almost before the match even starts, so the fact that theyve made it this far is just really impressive. Well have to be ready for a powerful, yet short Duke team. 2012 ACC Player of the Year Beatrice Capra was expelled from Duke earlier this spring due to an academic violation. Down a veteran player, the Blue Devils roster continued to take hits. Junior Rachael Kahan and sophomore Monica Turewicz are both out for the rest of the season due to injuries. Dukes roster now only Blue Devils will have to forfeit a singles match and may give opponents going forward a lead in before match play. Thornqvist said the possibility of gaining the 1-0 lead wont give the Gators any greater chance to win. They give us a lead going into it, but it is what we make it to be, Thornqvist said. If were up 1-0 before the match even starts, thats great, but that doesnt mean time sooner. Florida has done well historically against Duke, leading 35-5 in the all-time series, sweeping the Blue Devils in NCAA Championship matchups, 6-0. Thornqvist said the key for the Gators success has always been to remain calm against tough opponents. turning players, has shown that in the past weve been able to handle our nerves, and that has really separated us from some other teams, Thornqvist said. Now, thats a great thing to have in your back pocket. After grabbing two doubles and second rounds, Thornqvist said his team is better in doubles after working on playing inside the service box. He said the Gators be. I think everyone feels relief that they know were ready for it, Thornqvist said. Thats what you try to urge or tell your team. When you get to this point, you want to feel like youre prepared, and then you can live with whatever happens.Florida set for rematch with undermanned Duke Blue Devils shut out Gators in February The fact that Duke is in the Round (of) 16 is just a remarkable achievement.Roland ThornqvistUF coachMENS GOLF RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator WriterThe Florida mens golf team will tee off postseason play today when it competes in the Baton Rouge Regional of the 2013 NCAA tournament. The regional will pit the Gators against some familiar foes. Of the 22 teams invited to Baton Rouge, ence. However, coach Buddy Alexander does not think familiarity will be a factor in the tournament. It doesnt matter that youre familiar with some SEC foes, Alexander said. Thats the nature of golf, you kind of focus on what youre doing instead of what your opponents doing. Florida will compete against several ranked SEC teams, including No. 2 Alabama, No. 17 LSU and No. will play with a member of the Crimson Tide in their Tigers, who are playing on their home course. I think were ready to play, Alexander said. We havent played in a while, and last time we played we didnt play particularly well. I think theres been a little more intensity in the effort theyve put into it. The intensity and effort will be needed to correct some of the issues that led to Florida shooting SEC tournament on April 21. Another problem is the teams lineup going into the tournament, which Alexander is shaking up. Were going to play Tommy Mou instead of A.J. Crouch, he said. A.J.s a freshman, and he didnt play particularly well in the SEC tournament. I think Tommys more consistent. Crouch shot a team worst 21 over par in the SEC tournament, and Alexander hopes Mou will add the stability needed to advance past the regionals and onto the Mou will start things off for the Gators in the 8 a.m. group. He will be followed by sophomore Eric Banks at 8:10, sophomore J.D. Tomlinson at 8:20, senior T.J. Vogel at 8:30 and senior Tyler McCumber at 8:40.UF golf to begin NCAA Regional ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterJohnny Magliozzi has been Floridas most consistent pitcher in 2013. But with one series left in the regular season, his role still has not been The right-hander has pitched 26 times this season, but recently, coach Kevin OSullivan added Magliozzi to the rotation with promising results.

LaGrow said the differences in turf, lighting and acoustics shouldnt be an issue after the practices. Meagher added that the climate itself might be a more comfortable one to play in.

Having additional space outside will be a good thing, she said. Even though there is a ton of seating inside, it still gets packed, she said. Eric Salaices agrees. Seating outside is limited, and having extra space will be useful, said the 21-year-old UF biology senior. Salaices said he was glad that the construction was being done during the summer so that students would be able to enjoy the seating during the cooler months. Because the Hub was the university bookstore until 2003, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said changes are being made to accommodate students in such a centrally located area.

Jimi and Miles. Fans of the late trumpet and guitar masters have long known that Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix had been making plans to record together in the year before Hendrixs sudden death in 1970. But less attention has been paid to the bass player they were trying to recruit: Paul McCartney, who was busy with another band at the time. This tantalizing detail about the super group that never was jazz standout Tony Williams would have been on drums is contained in an oft-overlooked telegram that Hendrix sent to McCartney at The Beatles Apple Records in London on Oct. 21, 1969.

UF alumnus Doug Trovillion, the owner of Kona Dog, said he decided to join the rally after hearing about the success of the March rally. The environment is ripe for people from larger areas where there are a lot of food trucks, said Trovillion, who got inspiration for his food truck menu after being stationed in Hawaii with the Marine Corps. The long wait times that marked the the past due to more vendors and an earlier starting time, Lavery said. On the city level, Commissioner Lauren Poe said the community development committee is considering reducing restrictions on mobile food vendors within city limits due to the popularity of the rallies. He said research into the impacts on established brick-and-mortar restauwill be considered in the discussion. Its obviously something thats been popular in the community, Poe said. Lavery agreed that residents are backing the concept of making food truck rallies a regular event. He said the rallies have created a wider acceptance of food trucks in town and have inspired others to start their own food trucks locally. This is a really cool thing that Gainesville wants, Lavery said. And the need for seating areas have changed as well. Regardless of the Florida heat, Orlando said he thinks students will make good use of the space. Its become a really popular gathering spot for students, mainly because of all the dining options in that vicinity, he said. And having outside seating gives students the option of enjoying the outdoors and fresh air.

UF ranked 25th on a list of affordable colleges with a high return on investment released by www.affordablecollegesonline. org. The website reviewed 875 fully accredited colleges with a total four-year tuition cost of less than $40,000. The only other Florida school to make the top 50 was EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University, which has a campus in Daytona Beach. To calculate return on investment, the website subtracted the cost of each institution from the expected 30-year salary earned with a degree from the institution. UFs return on investment was $351,000. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the value of a UF degree stems from the idea that UF students are seen as invaluable in many industries.

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterA Gainesville man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly took his girlfriends car keys and physically restrained her from leaving his house. Christopher Lee Holtz, 18, was arrested on charges of simple battery and false imprisonment related to dating violence. At about 8 p.m. Tuesday, Holtz and his girlfriend of three years were arguing in his front yard in the 1600 block of SE Third Ave., according to the report. Ira Keene, 49, who lived at the house with Holtz, said the couple was arguing about money and a credit card. He said Holtz had deleted the womans bank account. Just before the girlfriend arrived at the house, Keene said, he questioned Holtz regarding some borrowed stereo equipment Keene said Holtz couldnt account for. He was in a bad mood, Keene said. When Holtzs girlfriend tried to leave in her car, Holtz grabbed her keys and refused to give them back, according to the police report. She continued to try to get into her car, but Holtz repeatedly blocked her path. When she started kicking Holtz, he wrapped his arms around her and forced her inside his house. He said he didnt want the argument to disturb the neighbors, according to the report. Holtzs girlfriend tried to escape several times, but Holtz prevented her from leaving. Keene was in the backyard when he heard the sound of glass shattering. The woman had broken a window next to the front door in an attempt to leave the house, according to the report. Holtz was arrested at about 9 p.m. and booked into the Alachua County Jail, where he remained as of press time with a bond of $20,000.

The season will feature six musicals, including Mamma Mia! and Hello, Dolly!; banjoist Bela Fleck; a cappella group Straight No Chaser and a UF alumnas new opera, The Red Silk Thread, according to UFPAs website. The selection process began about two years ago, UFPA Director Michael Blachly wrote in an email. Contemporary, pop, jazz, rock and blues artists book in a shorter time, Blachly said, so UFPA is still looking to add those genres to the season. UF students respond well to Broadway musicals, dance companies and world performances, public relations associate Todd Taylor wrote in an email. We also think students will be excited about Straight No Chaser and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Taylor said. Blachly said 28 of the 66 artists are repeat visitors to UF.

Steve Whittaker, a psychology professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, headed a team of researchers that found one-third of people cannot bring themselves to delete them to suffer for a longer period of time. The study involved interviews with 24 people who went through valued digital and physical possessions that related to a recent breakup, Whittaker wrote in an email. He then evaluated their coping strategies. The study also found those who decide often regret it because they may want to look back on them. Still, some worry if their exes come back around, they may not forgive them for removing the pictures. A relationship change is one of those milestones featured on Facebook, and though its painful at the time, if the relationship ended nicely, you may want to cherish it and learn from it, said UF social media specialist Bruce Floyd. But I can see there are certain circumstances such as an abusive relationship where you may want to get rid of it. Some of the participants in the study admitted to immediately deleting their ex in order to cope with the sudden heartbreak. I know a lot of friends who have to delete their ex off their Facebook because it hurts to see them out living their life all happy . while youre all sad and depressed, said Genesis Lara, a 21-year old UF history junior. Researchers proposed an application that could automatically detect anything related to a relationship and delete it or at least store it away just in case of a second chance. If Facebook creates some sort of delete application, I think there should be an undo function that remembers those changes so that they can get those memories back, Floyd said.Br8kups hard to deal with on Facebook, study shows

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 We all know the drill. You see an acquaintance from afar. You dont really feel like talking to him, so you pull out your cellphone and feign interest in it. You keep your eyes glued to the screen so you dont make eye contact with the person youre avoiding. Once youre at a safe distance, the relief sets in that youve dodged the proverbial bullet that is face-to-face interaction. Im guilty of this action on a daily basis, but upon phone as a crutch for avoiding human interaction is simply unhealthy. Our minds seem to be reprogramming themselves to require visual stimuli beyond what is physically in front of us. If a real conversation pauses, it has become a knee-jerk reaction to pull out our phones and look at them until one of us thinks of something else to say. Cellphones have gone from an accessory for communication to our main mode of communication a fact that I believe to be a problem. We are forgetting the importance of real, live conversation. True, unscripted and genuine conversing is going by the wayside while text messaging is becoming our main tool for communication. Think about the last time you said something you regretted in a face-to-face conversation, even if it was just something like a you-had-to-be-there story that no one found interesting. If youre anything like me, it probably wasnt too long ago that you said something you wish you could take back. in person is real, spontaneous and rich. In my opinyou have an abundance of real, live interaction. Real conversations leave no time for editing, deleting or molding the perfect statement. All of these perks to texting are likely reasons why most of us prefer to use this electronic method to verbal communication. actual conversations with the people around them. Regional Transit System looking down at screens. And if, God forbid, someone does try to strike up a conversation, were likely to assume that that person is either crazy or must have forgotten his or her cellphone at home. Couples at dinner spend more time scrolling through their Facebook news feeds than carrying on conversation with one another. It is time for a change. Throughout our lifetimes, the technology of digital devices has expanded from practically nonexistent to a simply unavoidable commodity. Through the accessibility of these devices, we have created a world of screens. Our obsession with, and perhaps even addiction to, cell phones and Internet access has created an environment where so much is said, but very little is heard, and our real life relationships are suffering because of it. Use your phone as a tool for communication, an accessory to your arsenal, not a crutch for avoidance. Next time you go out to eat with friends or a Your phone is not a baby. Youre allowed to leave it alone with the windows up, I promise. Check your Facebook once in the morning and once at night, regardless of how boring the people around you may seem. If you see an old acquaintance, dont pull out your phone to avoid the conversation. Just say hello. Seriously, try it its really not that scary. Use Facebook, Twitter and text messaging to schedule face-to-face interaction just dont say face-to-face interaction, or people will think youre strange, and stop and smell the roses you dont always have to Instagram them. Patrick Ryan is a UF English senior. His column appears on Thursdays. Put your cell phones down, peopleColumnIn one month, the Supreme Court will decide Fisher v. University of Texas, a case that has the potential to dramatically alter the college admissions process. In 2008, Abigail Fisher was denied admission to the University of Texas at Austin. She now argues that her minority applicants violated her 14th Amendment rights. The University of Texas appealed to precedent: in 2003, the Supreme Court plicants in university admissions was permissible in the name of pursuing diversity. However, that decision may soon be overturned. Even if the Supreme Court does not overturn its past ruling, the underlying question still remains: to what extent should race and ethnicity be considered in college admissions, if at all? Does a difference in appearance directly indicate different and unique ways of thinking? Probably not. I would argue that two individuals from the same socioeconomic background are much more similar than their racial differences may suggest. To achieve a truly diverse student body, admission preferences should instead be given to applicants who strive to succeed in the face of socioeconomic disparity. This sort of inclusiveness lends itself to both cultural and socioeconomic diversity and to social mobility, while upholding racial and ethnic equality. Some have argued that the sudden exclusion of racial and ethnic categorization may result in a harmful demographic redistribution of college students. When the University of California was forced this initially led to a large increase in the number of Asian students and a decline in the number of other minority students. However, as of late, the numbers have shown the reverse: under this meritocracy, all minority groups have seen increased enrollment. It is clear that pursuit of racial and ethnic diversity and equality. A meritocracy evaluates character, not color. Race and ethnicity should not be blanketing characteristics in college admissions. To foster diversity, admission preferences should only be given in cases of socioeconomic disparity; race itself should never differentiate applicants. The current evidence suggests that there is injustice within the system, but a correction to this may come as soon as June.

In an effort to provide an environmentally friendly cleaning service to Gainesville, Mary Moore decided to create Green Clean Homes. She noticed Gainesville locals bringing reusable bags to grocery stores and residents using bicycles instead of cars. After reading some articles on an entrepreneurship website, she realized Gainesville didnt have a green cleaning service. So, she opened her unique Moore decided Green Clean Homes would be a service that offers environmentally friendly cleaning practices along with a luxurious experience. With everyone wanting to go green, I thought it would be a need here (in Gainesville), Moore said. Moore explained that she had been doing her part to help the environment long before it was the popular thing to do. Living in St. Augustine, she would take a weekly trip to the St. Johns River to pick up trash. Nowadays, Moore encourages people to reuse water bottles, carpool when possible and pay closer attention to water and light usage. Starting (this business) has sort of regenerated my passion for wanting to be environmentally friendly and to be as green as I can, she said. Moore got the idea in early April, and by April 24, it was an completed for this to happen. decision to do it, Moore said. After I debated for a couple of weeks on if I should do it and if it would made the decision. The second step for Moore was researching trademarked names there wasnt another business that went by the same exact name. After that, she went on www. sunbiz.org to purchase the name. The fourth step was going to the City of Gainesville and registering Green Clean Homes as a business. Reporting the opening to the local newspaper is a requirement by the city, and from there a website was started, along with the creation of business cards and other methods of advertising. Green Clean Homes cleans ofJonesville, Newberry and Alachua counties. Employee Maisie Johnson, who also works for Moores Aloha Pet Sitting and Dog Walking company, is excited to work for a busiGainesville. (It is) pretty neat that I get to Johnson said. I had never heard of green cleaning businesses before, so I think this is a really great idea for the area. The company uses eco-friendly products to clean, but that is only part of what it does to stay environmentally friendly. In addition, Moore says recycling and avoiding paper usage is important, too. That is why her employees use recycled newspapers to clean mirrors and other glass surfaces. Moores business provides extras such as aromatherapy oil diffusion and turndown service on linens.

This weeks What To Watch movie combines them both. Directed by the over-the-top Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby is as visually stunning as youd expect. Unlike the next few weeks upcoming releases, its the perfect summer date movie. And in what seems like a Hollywood miracle, the movie seems to follow the book quite well. It seems weird for a movie set in the early 1900s where jazz ran rampant, but it works. Especially in the hotel scene with Myrtle: The bass drop seems 100 percent on target. The soundtrack brings something for the guys, while the movies story will draw in all the females. Running at two hours and 22 minutes, The Great Gatsby is rather long. The last hour of the movie drags on to the point where you realize the producer could have cut about 30 minutes and there would still be a complete story. With that being said, The Great Gatsby is a worthy way to kick off your summer moviegoing.What To Watch This Week: Gatsby Movies Moore Green Clean Homes provides eco-friendly cleaning options

Dear Friend, There is no way to know how good you are in bed. Surprise! Everyone has lied about the quality of his or her sexual encounters at least once. Women fake or gasms and men fake interest. With all of this pretending scored, there is no way to know. Even if he does con fess that you rocked his world leaving a permanent woman to top you you would still have to trust that opinion. Trust your gut and dont overthink this. Youre not a stripper or a show dog. Do what you want in bed, and if there is no chemistry between you and whomever youre boning, then hit it and quit it. Dear Mediocre Advice, My partner and I have been going out a lot lately, but he still wont call me his. This has been going on for months. What should I do to let him know this bothers me? Dear Friend, Call him out on it. Dont pretend to be OK with something youre not, because it will come back to bite you in the ass. Youre not asking for too much: You need lationship. Whether this is a deal-breaker situation or something you can come to a compromise on, you need to commu nicate with him. If you dont come to a another persons needs. Dear Friend, Your friends lied. Being the nice guy is a bad thing. Nice guy refers to someone you like, but are in no way romantically interested in and proba bly never will be. This cursed name is only used to soften the blow of rejec tion, but guys arent complete dum mies. Guys know being called nice means they have no shot with the person who deems them nice guys. In return, they mistakenly take this for Id like you if you were more of an asshole. You dont need to be an as shole; you just have to accept the fact that not every girl you like will recipro cate the feeling.

The following list should provide a good start for such ventures. One thing to note: locals in Midtown, the two swelteringly scuzzy blocks of debaucherous ground near Library West, are missing. Let this land reign as the destination for ultradomestic, albeit inexpensive, taps and bottles.House of Beer19 W. University Ave. Located on the same block as Stubbies & Steins, HOB offers more than 40 taps and has great deals throughout the week. Hoggetowne Ale Works3454 W. University Ave. Want to take a stab at creating your own brew? The folks at Hoggetowne Ale Works have all of the supplies and insight youll need. Best local spots to grab a beerSwamp Head3140 SW 42nd Way Cottonmouth still holds as my favorite drink of choice. The tasting room closes super early but is usually crowded and lets you mingle among brewing barrels.Local Brewery: Downtown: Northwest and Southwest:Stubbies & Steins9 W. University Ave. More than 10 years old and dubbed Gainesvilles premier destination for beer, Stubbies & Steins offers substantial competition to World of Beers selection, with nearly 400 bottles and 24 draft choices available. They also offer eclectic art painted on the walls, as well as kickass fries that are oh so good at the end of the night. Hogans 2327 NW 13th St. and 5156 SW 34th St. They also have an international beer club: Complete your punch card to earn a free T-shirt that will make all your frat friends jelly.Tipples2440 SW 76th St. #110 bring the best bottle to the next BYOB.Brass Tap3833 SW Archer Road, Building B This spot opened within the year, and offers a great atmosphere similar to that of downtown. Worth a visit if you need a change of scenery. Parking is limited, and the surrounding areas are notorious for ticketing, though, so be prepared to park and walk.The Queens Arms Pub5323 SW 91st Terrace I love this spot. Nestled in the village of Haile Plantation, the Queens Arms Pub reincarnates a traditional Mediterranean pub environmentthink of it as a mini Euro retreat. Tall Pauls10 SE Second Ave. This bar and brewery has quickly become one of Gainesvilles most popular night life spots. Check it out if youre in the mood for brew and old school bar games.Home Brewing:

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Assistant coach Erica LaGrow advised the Gators on playing in a domed environment. See story, page 20. MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator WriterThe Gators will soon have a chance for revenge. The No. 1 Florida womens tennis team goes head-to-head with No. 15 Duke at 10 a.m. on Friday in the NCAA Round of 16 in Urbana, Ill. The Blue Devils swept the Gators 4-0 in the regular season, making it one of Floridas only two losses during the 2013 season. Despite Floridas loss to Duke in February, coach Roland Thornqvist said facing Dukes lineup for the NCAA match will be a different challenge. The fact that Duke is in the Round (of) 16 is just a remarkable achievement, Thornqvist said. With four scholarship players and a soccer player [Nicole Lipp] cult it is to be down two points almost before the match even starts, so the fact that theyve made it this far is just really impressive. Well have to be ready for a powerful, yet short Duke team. 2012 ACC Player of the Year Beatrice Capra was expelled from Duke earlier this spring due to an academic violation. Down a veteran player, the Blue Devils roster continued to take hits. Junior Rachael Kahan and sophomore Monica Turewicz are both out for the rest of the season due to injuries. Dukes roster now only Blue Devils will have to forfeit a singles match and may give opponents going forward a lead in before match play. Thornqvist said the possibility of gaining the 1-0 lead wont give the Gators any greater chance to win. They give us a lead going into it, but it is what we make it to be, Thornqvist said. If were up 1-0 before the match even starts, thats great, but that doesnt mean time sooner. Florida has done well historically against Duke, leading 35-5 in the all-time series, sweeping the Blue Devils in NCAA Championship matchups, 6-0. Thornqvist said the key for the Gators success has always been to remain calm against tough opponents. turning players, has shown that in the past weve been able to handle our nerves, and that has really separated us from some other teams, Thornqvist said. Now, thats a great thing to have in your back pocket. After grabbing two doubles and second rounds, Thornqvist said his team is better in doubles after working on playing inside the service box. He said the Gators be. I think everyone feels relief that they know were ready for it, Thornqvist said. Thats what you try to urge or tell your team. When you get to this point, you want to feel like youre prepared, and then you can live with whatever happens.Florida set for rematch with undermanned Duke Blue Devils shut out Gators in February The fact that Duke is in the Round (of) 16 is just a remarkable achievement.Roland ThornqvistUF coachMENS GOLF RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator WriterThe Florida mens golf team will tee off postseason play today when it competes in the Baton Rouge Regional of the 2013 NCAA tournament. The regional will pit the Gators against some familiar foes. Of the 22 teams invited to Baton Rouge, ence. However, coach Buddy Alexander does not think familiarity will be a factor in the tournament. It doesnt matter that youre familiar with some SEC foes, Alexander said. Thats the nature of golf, you kind of focus on what youre doing instead of what your opponents doing. Florida will compete against several ranked SEC teams, including No. 2 Alabama, No. 17 LSU and No. will play with a member of the Crimson Tide in their Tigers, who are playing on their home course. I think were ready to play, Alexander said. We havent played in a while, and last time we played we didnt play particularly well. I think theres been a little more intensity in the effort theyve put into it. The intensity and effort will be needed to correct some of the issues that led to Florida shooting SEC tournament on April 21. Another problem is the teams lineup going into the tournament, which Alexander is shaking up. Were going to play Tommy Mou instead of A.J. Crouch, he said. A.J.s a freshman, and he didnt play particularly well in the SEC tournament. I think Tommys more consistent. Crouch shot a team worst 21 over par in the SEC tournament, and Alexander hopes Mou will add the stability needed to advance past the regionals and onto the Mou will start things off for the Gators in the 8 a.m. group. He will be followed by sophomore Eric Banks at 8:10, sophomore J.D. Tomlinson at 8:20, senior T.J. Vogel at 8:30 and senior Tyler McCumber at 8:40.UF golf to begin NCAA Regional ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterJohnny Magliozzi has been Floridas most consistent pitcher in 2013. But with one series left in the regular season, his role still has not been The right-hander has pitched 26 times this season, but recently, coach Kevin OSullivan added Magliozzi to the rotation with promising results.

Theyve played each other in an NFL stadiHowever, when the teams meet on Saturday at 2 p.m. with a trip to the Final Four at Villanova on the line, the Gators will be playing in completely new conditions -indoors I hear its a wonderful venue, coach Amanda OLeary said of Syracuses Carrier know much about it.

You run a little bit faster on turf, LaGrow said. The ball bounces a little bit differently on turf, so Mikey is going to be seeing some The Gators travel to Syracuse today so they can have an extra practice to get acclimated to the dome. LaGrow said the differences in turf, lighting and acoustics shouldnt be an issue after the practices. Meagher added that the climate itself might be a more comfortable one to play in.

There will also be one key difference from the teams March matchup in Miami. Senior attacker Michelle Tumolo led the Orange with four goals in the loss while none of her teammates scored more than two.
