Dec. 4, 1984 Someone just couldnt get over his hatred for pigs, and he took action. Herbert Dickey, a Hawthorne man, found his 150-pound hog stabbed nearly to death in his pen one evening. He said he heard a ruckus coming from his hog pen. Some dogs were gathered around the pig, so Dickey thought the dogs had attacked saw the 15 stab wounds he knew someone had broken in and attacked his pig. The perpetrator would be charged $5,000 if caught. Dec. 2, 1986 The university was dethroned from the partying list After two years of making the top 10 of Playboys Top 40 Party Colleges, UF dropped to 29 when the ranking system changed. When the magazine looked at sexual climate and quality of student life, the university came in sixth ever, with the ranking based on strictly partying that year, UF lost to smaller schools that earned their rankings with as much creativity as crudeness.

A series of vending machines breakins led University Police to remind everyone to remain vigilant around their confection machines. Six vending machines were broken into over a nine-day period.

LIFESTYLE DANIELA GELATKAAlligator Contributing WriterRegional fungi and bacteria may be part of what makes wines unique, researchers recently reported, but some Gainesville wine connoisseurs say the information could detract from the drinks romanticism. A glass of wine from one region tastes different than a glass from another. Often, the differences in taste are credited to the terroir, how the climate affects the grapes growth. A team from the University of California found that wine-growing regions have patterns of fungi and bacteria that may be responsible for distinctive terroir taste. Researchers have established a way to prove that terroir exists and might have created a way to actually measure it. But Randall Gersdorf, a food manager at Dorns Liquors & Wine Warehouse, said several factors impact wine beyond the sciTheres still a very strong sense of place thing that would be preserved regardless of these new methods. However, it could hurt the wine industry if someone could possibly recreate some of the microbial content to simulate a regions it would be possible to perfectly replicate a wine from a different growing region. Although most people dont consider microbes when they think about wine, those found on grapes affect its rate of fermentation, which will also change the manager of Half Corkd wine bar. Dillon, who has 20 years of experience in the industry, said although he thinks tastes, its something that may be too complicated for the everyday wine drinker. wine if you start talking about microbes and such instead of the mysticism of terroir, Dillon said.Researchers wine-ing about registered bacteria, fungi MOST WOULD CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTAMPA The city of Tampa is considering big changes in how drinks are poured at bars, restaurants and nightclubs. A draft ordinance up for consideration by the city council would roll back bar closing times from 3 a.m. to midnight, The Tampa Bay Times reported. Bars, nightclubs and other venues would be able to apply for an extended hours business permit to stay open later. Businesses like convenience stores that sell alcohol for carryout would not be subject to the early closure. Bars, restaurants and nightclubs with special use permits, a form of wet-zoning in which the city council sets operating hours, would also be exempt. The city is also considering issuing new business permits clubs with state licenses to serve drinks. The proposed rules will be discussed at a city council meeting on Thursday. They come two years after shootings at two Ybor Cityarea clubs left one man dead and six wounded. According to the ordinance, an extended-hours permit would be a privilege, not a right, and would have to be renewed every year. The city could suspend or revoke a permit if the establishment lets customers drink or stays open after 3 p.m.; had any two violations of certain laws like possession of felony controlled substances within a 12-month period; or had four cases of criminal possession of marijuana within six months. Stephen Michelini, a land-use consultant who represents many restaurants in the city, said there are many unanswered questions about a change that could wreak havoc on established restaurants. there are some problems with very the remedy for correcting them is to change the entire ordinance, he said.

Bleiweis said after stabilizing Henderson with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, a method of providing blood to the body when the heart needs assistance, there was need for a long-term option. He said there are documented cases where patients have had the synthetic heart for more than a year, and with careful monitoring, there is potential to function with the heart for a long period of time. After replacing Hendersons heart with a SynCardia in June, her previously failing organs recovered completely. Now, she is in perfect condition to receive a new heart.

Melanie Martinez, who was on season three of The Voice, will be performing at High Dive on Dec. 13, and local talent Kelsi Candelaria was picked to open the event. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets will be $12 in advance and $14 at the door. Candelaria, 20, a local musician with an associate degree in musical theater, said she used to watch The Voice, and Martinez was her favorite contestant. Candelaria said she will probably perform her song Valentine, which went viral on YouTube with about 52,000 views. Candelaria has performed more than 70 shows since she was 16 and said she incorporates new music at every performance. Being on stage, I feel like I get to be the truest version of myself. Its like a safe place, she said. The booking agent picked Candelaria to perform with Martinez because of their similar music and fashion tastes. It is hard to build a fan base in a college town because people constantly move in and out of the city, Candelaria said, but this also helps spread music. With so much talent going unnoticed, Candelaria said she wants to enrich Gainesvilles culture and bring more attention to the music scene. You have a lot of talented people coming in and out of Gainesville, she said. Theres this thing growing under the surface. And it disappoints me that more people dont know about it. I want Gainesville to be known for music. Megan Hill, 21-year-old Santa Fe College student, wrote in an email it is important that artists be appreciated. Hill said she is a fan of both Candelaria and Martinezs music and expects to leave the show with goosebumps. Ive watched Melanie Martinezs videos on YouTube before she was ever on The Voice, and I absolutely love Kelsi Candelaria, Hill said.Gainesville artist to team up with The Voice contestant HEarART, from page 1Battery packs used in EuropeFSU fan charged at people with a machetecording to an arrest report.

Gator fans joking about rape should be ashamedOften when we bemoan UF fan behavior, we refer to benign actions such as students leaving before the game is over or stupidly passing out due to excessive alcohol consumption. However, fan behavior that occurred Saturday during the UF-FSU game at The Swamp was far more sinister. Photos are being shared online of UF students wearing Tshirts emblazoned with The Rapers: Forced Sex University in response to Jameis Winstons alleged rape of an FSU student last December. Although we normally hesitate to source TotalFratMove.com, sources told the websites moderator that men of UFs Phi Gamma Delta chapter were behind this particular T-shirt design. However, the fraternity wasnt alone in its disgusting display of ignorance. Cheers rang out over the stadium on Saturday, mocking FSU, the Winston case and rape and sexual assault in general. UF fans gleefully clung to the negative attention FSU has been receiving with tasteless jokes and crude T-shirts, thus cementing the image in Americans brains of UF as a party school full of drunken idiots who lack sensitivity about campus rape a naThe Alligators editorial board would like to apologize to the victim and her family on behalf of the UF fans who apparently have no regard for the real people involved in the Winston case and the 20 percent of college women affected by sexual assault and rape. Low morale isnt a reason to bring an issue much more serious than football itself into the stadium. What is perhaps more disturbing is how the fan behavior went beyond the rape-jokes-arent-funny argument. In this case, a stadium full of students shamed another university because one individual came forward and reported rape to the police. This sends a damaging message to women that victim-blaming is inevitable and could discourage them from coming forward with their stories of rape and sexual assault To the students who participated and were complicit in this behavior, you should take a close look at yourselves. Its very likely some of the women around you in the stadium were victims of rape and sexual assault, yet you decided to make it a joke under the weak guise of football rivalry. UF prides itself on being a progressive institution that makes enormous strides in academia and research, but these malicious actions hurt the brand UF has worked to establish and diminishes the value of a UF degree. It further adds to a victim-blaming culture in response to reports of rape, and it sends a message to women that silence is better than tarnishing a universitys image. For a university thats supposed to be a hotbed for forward thinking, the actions of UF fans on Saturday represented one giant step backward. Goodbye to all that: On entering adulthoodWith Thanksgiving Break coming to an end, its time to come back to school for the last two weeks of the semester. Hopefully, were full, happy and ready to take on Then well have a couple of weeks to regroup, enjoy some holiday festivities and start working on those New Years resolutions for the next semester. But for some of us, this might be that last hurrah. As I say goodbye to the structure albeit chaotic university life offers, Im looking forward to the next chapter and whatever it has in store for me. Graduation means more than putting on a cap and gown and walking across a stage. That piece of paper, where someday, is a testament to more than grades, classes or even a college degree. upon a time, getting a bachelors degree was enough to guarantee a good job. Now, going to graduate school is Lets not dismiss the weight of the four years weve spent here. There are a few experiences that most of us can relate to: the unproductive all-nighters at Library West, happily subsisting on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches freshman year in the dorms and Krishna Lunch on the Plaza of the Americas on beautiful Florida autumn days. But the truth is, weve all had unique experiences at UF. same, excited to move on. Learning never stops. We are constantly studying the people and situations around us. We take notes on what we want, what we dont, who we want to be and who we shouldnt be. Life is a series of exams, except cramming is not an option. The test comes when you least expect it, and if youre not prepared, through it. Personal growth isnt ceremonious. Theres no stage to walk across every time we pass a hurdle at work, no diploma for a bachelor of science in personal relationships waiting for us when we go through a breakup. Theres certainly no dean smiling, shaking our hand when we get over our quarter-life crisis. Weve been conditioned in school that, when the test is turned in, we can make room for new information, that everything comes to an end nicely that we can start fresh every semester. But life doesnt offer deadsome of us graduate in a couple of weeks, lets cherish that it might be one of the last times we get to close something with fanfare. As I look back at these four-or-so years that Ive been a student here, I feel grateful. I took creative liberties by taking a year off for some traveling and work, which is why I feel my upcoming graduation is my second time going out into the real world, without an institution to go back to. tant to note Im opening another. A diploma shows what Ive accomplished in my academic life so far, but more than that, its a passport to the rest of my life our lives. Well cross into territories that still remain unexplored, and those are some of the best lessons well get. And no, theres no Smokin Notes or TutoringZone for that, but really, thats OK with me.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Rhinos are majestic but well-armored beasts with thick skin and enormous protruding horns on their noses. Many people just see rhinos as large ferocious animals that roam the African plains and are considered among the most deadly animals in Africa. So, why would anyone mess with a rhino and what for? Well, in many Asian and Chinese cultures, its believed the horn of a rhino can cure many diseases, one of which is cancer. Due to these needs, many rhinos are being poached just for their horns. With rhino horns going for as much as $100,000 per about two pounds of horn, according to than gold, diamonds and illegal substances such as cocaine. Poachers know this, and they continue to slaughter rhinos in pursuit of the extravagant amount of money available. A recent study found that poaching has more than doubled in recent years, and if this continues, rhinos could be extinct in the wild in about 20 years. There have been many attempts to try to reduce the poaching of rhinos. In 1977, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora banned the trade of rhino horns. Due to economic growth in many Chinese cultures, the demand for rhino horns has increased Many countries in Africa have increased security within their parks by hiring more rangers. A few years ago, some countries tried to help rhinos by cutting the animals horns off so poachers wouldnt kill them. This was unsuccessful for two reasons: One was that rhinos horns grow back, and the poachers would still kill them for just a little bit of the horn. Second was that after a poacher tracks a rhino for a day and sees one without the horn, the poacher will kill it for the simple fact that next time they poach, they wont be tracking a hornless rhino. There are still many ideas about how to stop poaching but not all are acceptable. The most effective way, as of today, is to increase security within rhino grazing areas, but with increased security comes the demand for more money. You can help save rhinos by donating a little money to rhino conservation programs. Youll possibly save the rhino population for more generations to see. Nicholas Smith is a UF wildlife and ecology senior. Rhino endangerment is a problemGuest column Kanye Wests latest music video for his track Bound 2 is poorly composed and ridiculous, featuring a montage of overdone, tacky nature CGI scenes and Kanye on a motorbetween these Midwestern scenes and close-ups of Kanyes and Kim Kardashians awful sex faces. Its no surprise the video release of Bound 2 about a week ago has already generated some seriously wonderful spoofs. The best one going viral right now was composed by none other than the lovable duo of James Franco and Seth Rogen, who met on the set of the 1999 television show Freaks and Geeks and whose friendship rose Franco and Rogens remake of Bound 2 is also known as Bound 3 due to its incredibly accurate parody of the grotesque, choppy motorcycle sex scene between Kanye and Kim, which spans nearly the entire four-minute video. Franco and Rogens rendition reaches next-level hilarity as they mimic each frame, reveling in the absurdity of it all. Franco satirizes Kanyes peacocking gestures while rapping, drawing attention to the ways men in hip-hop culture garishly exaggerate their masculinity. His portrayal of Kanye is ironic but accurate, embodying the egocentricity of the famous rapper while also reminding us of Francos satirical performance as the rapper Alien in Spring Breakers. In Bound 3, Francos basically the shee-it. Rogen, on the other hand, takes on the role of the naked Kim Kardashian, riding backwards on the front of the motorcycle and thrusting like she does with his arms in the air. He mimics her sexy face perfectly, complete with bedroom eyes and half-open lips. The humor behind Rogens portrayal of Kim is obvious he, like Kim, tries so hard in the video to appear as feminine and voluptuous as possible. In watching the satire that is Bound 3, we see Franco and Rogen portray Kanye and Kim as trying way too hard. Both seem detached from each other, competing for attention and camera time in the video. Their relationship seems staged, awkward and forced, as neither Kanye nor Kim is willing to give in to the selfless and self-concealing demands of true love. Relationships are formed to emphasize a unity between two people, resulting in some degree of the loss of the self a concept ated on their own selves that the union of the two narcissists is hard to watch. Bound 2 portrays the relationship between Kanye and Kim as one physical, all staged under Hollywood lights. In a world where sex is so overtly portrayed and normalized through popular media, Franco and Rogens remake not only recognizes this but also exposes the fakeness of ly worth a watch if you can handle the obnoxious background music. Kate Irwin is a writer for The Daily Californian. A version of this column originally appeared on UWire. Kanye Wests Bound 2 music video is absurdUWire Lets say you brought your favorite pet to college. Three exams and two papers later, youre realizing you dont have the time or space to care for Steve the Snake. Well, doesnt every animal want to be free? Letting him go into the wild is the best option, right? Wrong! Releasing your pet is bad for both your pet and lots of native plants and animals. A pet is used to everyday care and constant shelter. Imagine all of that disappearing without having the proper skills to not be able to survive in the wild. Now, imagine your pet is somehow able to survive. It is now competing with native species and killing plants and animals that have no defense against this exotic pet. If it is able to reproduce, then it can take a serious toll on the ecosystem. There are better options than release. Local animal shelters and rescues are good out when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is holding its next Exotic Pet Amnesty Day. If you are no longer able to keep your pet, think twice about releasing it into the wild. Your pet and the ecosystem depend on it. Katie Price is a UF wildlife and ecology senior.Releasing pets detrimental Guest columnDespite the three years that remain in his term, for all intents and purposes, it appears that Barack Obamas time as president is over. Some may feel sadness and disappointment, others pure jubilation. Regardless of how you feel about the president and his policies, the notion that someones presidency could effectively end three years before it should is damaging to the American government and our country. More than the Republicans who pledged to obstruct Obama at every turn or the American people who are rightfully upset with the White House over the rollout of Obamacare, its the pundits, pollsters and news outlets that are prematurely ending a presidency. Rather than discussing issues, policies or todays politics, many focus on the politics and elections of the future. Recent elections in Virginia and New Jersey were viewed as bellwethers for the 2016 election ignoring the 2014 midterms completely. Exit polls asked voters in those states about hypothetical matchups between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republicans such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Naturally, the pundits dissected the results ad nauseam because the American democracy is all about elections. The political classs obsession with elections is harmful to the fabric of an already fragile system of government. Near paralysis in Congress combined with mounting issues ranging from climate change to immigration to improvements to the Affordable Care Act is putting the American people at serious risk. No matter how big or small you believe the federal government should be, we must have a functioning government to preserve and protect the U.S. for future generations. Sadly, the perpetual election cycle prevents us from moving forward on major issues. We can all agree the rollout of the Affordable Care Acts online exchange and some provisions within the law need serious improvements. With a functioning government, Congress could pursue a technical corrections Instead, Republicans have tied their political future to a complete repeal of the law, claiming an idea championed by Republicans in the 1990s is nothing more than dirty, rotten socialism. Why the lack of compromise or a functioning government? Elections. The politicians see the polls, read the news and even occasionally listen to one of the blathering talking heads on television. Its more about protecting their jobs than creating them for the millions the aftermath of the Great Recession. Christie summed it up best in the days following his re-election. Despite being an oft-discussed 2016 presidential candidate, he chastised people who are already looking at the next election, rather than the job at hand: running the country. Politics are everywhere. But that doesnt mean we should simply ignore the job of policy making and governing, just because elections seem like more fun. Elections especially presidential elections are the Super Bowl of politics, and its the main reason why the pundits and political junkies are always talking about them. Just like football, you cant simply skip from the game. A lot can happen, and a lot can change. week of the season and look how that worked out for them. The lesson is: Dont start thinking about the big game until you actually get there. In government, it takes hard work, compromise, a willingness to get the job done regardless of politics and an understanding the next election cycle. We have three years until we elect the next president, and it would be a shame if we only play the game of politics between now and then. The American people have too much at stake. So I ask the political junkies, for the good of the country, to put the politics to rest, roll up your sleeves and actually work together to better our country.

She said, Yeah, we cant do that. The Continuum, considered UFpremier housing option for graduate students, including those in law and masters in business administration programs. former resident, renters said staff at the complex verbally promised early if they received internships. But as summer neared and internoffer, they were threatened with or hit with various penalties. Everybody was essentially told a different story, Martinez said, adding that staff members said the request couldnt be honored because the promises were made under the old management. Now, six months after the wave of leasing complaints, the Continuum seems to have updated its leasing policy to prevent similar situations in the future. Administrators have been quiet about what the changes actually mean. the Continuums Birmingham, Ala.based management company, Capstone on Campus, wrote in an email that, in June, the management comible cancellation and termination policy, to address student residents participating in internships and CoOp Assignments, as well as those leaving school for other reasons. He would not point out or comThe leasing policy posted on the Continuums website incorporates a caveat that allows for lease termination or cancellation due to legitimate academic reasons. According to the policy, those umentary evidence is required), graduation, ineligibility to continue enrollment due to failure to meet academic requirements and registered co-op, internship, or than 30 miles away from the University of Floridas main campus). However, the policy does spell out a $1,000 termination fee if students choose to end a lease early even for legitimate academic reasons. This Summer, the contradiction between the printed leases and the tion among residents, but UF would not get involved with the University Avenue complex that sports the UF Housing and Residence Education logo on its website. the leases in question, but she said the university was aware of one incident that occurred during the summer. As for UFs relationship to the Continuum, she said the university just helps identify potential leasers. Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for student affairs, distanced the university from the complex. The Continuum staff are responsible for all day-to-day operations, including leases, she said. Students who live at the Continuum are not signing a lease with the University of Florida. To address collective concerns, in May Martinez organized an email response he sent to Continuum management and UF Housing executives. The email was signed by 10 students. in the event of an internship was a strong selling point that was used and emphasized by the complex. We were told that if we received an internship or externship we had to present a letter to the Continuum, signed by the university, explaining that we would be away for the summer doing an internship, he wrote in the email. phasizing that students and parents were concerned. Within two hours, he said, he got an email from the Continuum saying he was released from his rent so he could go to the internship. It had to almost be coerced out of them, said Martinez, who returned to Gainesville after the internship ended in July and moved into another apartment complex. Meanwhile, Brad Willard, an attorney and former Continuum resiit struggled to gain traction. He said the complaint didnt get much further than the attorney generals Consumer Protection Division. The scope of the problem wasnt wide enough, and patterns of behavior must be larger than one apartment complex. Its completely done, at least as far as theyre telling me, Willard said.Graduate students irritated with Continuum contradictions The complex has updated its policies

Almost all of his Because he has been one of Floridas healthiest players this year, Prather has utilized his daring style of basketball as a slasher. In previous years, multiple injuries such as concussions and a high ankle sprain made the Jackson, Tenn., native wary and hesitant. Coach Billy Donovan said Prather has played with a clearer understanding of the game this season. He sees the career was really painful for him, Donovan said. He was a deer in the headlights a lot of times. The lights came on and he was very unsure of himself. And I think for him this year, hes gotten better. Hes playing to his strengths. Hes not forcing shots. Hes not trying to make plays that arent there. Hes been a lot more productive and selective. ing to be there. play most of his minutes at small forward his natural spot. forward because of Floridas lack of frontcourt depth.

Broken bones arent an excuse, but the various injuries broke Floridas me mentality Muschamp railed against Former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis and quarterback Jacoby Brissett stared at the Florida State sidelines following its celebration in The Swamp after handling Florida in 2011. Weis told Brissett to remember that game and that feeling of losing to the school up north. The lasting image from Saturday wasnt so much what happened after the game, but instead what didnt happen during it. Jeff Driskel wasnt taking snaps, and Dominique Easley wasnt sacking Jameis Winston. Chaz Green wasnt blocking for Driskel, and Matt Jones wasnt carrying the football. Tyler Moore and Joey Ivie, and 2013 just is going on out there? That question remained unanswered as 15 seniors were honored on Saturday. I, too, had a Senior Day of sorts with Saturday being the last Gators football game I cover for now. Thinking back, I hold onto Sexy Rexy letting it rip and the trials and burn loss and erupting after The Block. I also remember standing in section 407, row 24 and seat 18 watching Tim Tebow win his second national championship. The Burton injury epitomized a year that never made sense. There were questionable play calls, inexplicable defensive collapses and an inherent need to shank jury bug that never went away.

The Gators boast two cornerbacks, Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson, non Hargreaves III, is widely considered one of the best freshmen in the country.

Im not worried about my day; Im worried about the teams day, and we got a victory.

Winston is as big a reason as any that the Seminoles are in this position. Florida State entered as a four-touchdown favorite against a reeling Florida team that has now lost seven consecutive games ing quarter, Winston began showcasing the ability that has made him a Heisman Trophy candidate this season. In the second quarter, he found Benjamin shirt sophomore wideout caught the pass and powered through three members of the UF secondary to plunge into the end zone for a 45-yard touchdown. with Purifoy to gain separation and hauled connected for a third score in the fourth quarter to put the Seminoles ahead 34-7. catches for 212 yards and three touchdowns, which are the most receiving yards Florida has ever allowed one player to accumulate in a game. job of getting him matched up on some of our smaller DBs by moving him around. The onslaught came in direct contrast to a Florida offense that failed to generate any momentum for much of the game.

I just wish I could have been After Burton exited, the Gators averaged only 1.3 yards per carry. Coach Will Muschamp said after the game that he planned to have Burton take more than 30 snaps at quarterback a departure from the previous strategy of using the Wildcat sparingly. The Gators hoped different looks could spark an offensive renaissance, but they never found out if it could work consistently. Some of the misdirection runs now go out of the game plan, so you got to make adjustments and said. It just kind of sums up Instead, the burden fell on quarterback Skyler Mornhinwegs right arm. The redshirt freshman performed admirably and met the goals set for him. He completed 80 percent of his passes and showed better poise with the ball, throwing it out of bounds when FSU defenders forced him to scramble instead of forcing passes into coverage. However, mere completions were not enough. Florida State stopped the short-yardage plays before Floridas receivers could get into open space. Mornhinweg and no receiver tallied more than 23 yards in the game. said. Theres no question moving forward (that) we need to do While the Gators struggled, the Seminoles soared.

Short drives ended any momentum the defense handed the offense. By halftime, the Gators could barely slow the Seminoles offensive juggernaut.

Thats the best way I can Floridas dismantling at the hands of Florida State ended one of the most miserable seasons in time the Gators failed to qualify for postseason play in 23 years. Even opposing teams seem to be conspiring to torment Florida fans. Barring any upsets, Florida State, now the top-ranked team in the nation, projects to match up against No. 2 Ohio State in the national title game a no-win scenario for Gators fans. Whether Winston or Urban Meyer wins, Florida fans lose. But UF is done with football for the year. The Gators will miss out on helpful bowl practices, and the team will disband for the offseason. Muschamp remains, however, and has the task of rebuilding the team while on the hot seat. Another season like this, and he will likely join Pease and Davis in the unemployment line. Muschamp faces a challenge that no Florida coach has encountered since Charley Pell built a winner out of a winless 1979 season. How do you bring a program out of the doldrums of mediocrity? We just have to roll your champ said. Were going to have a good football team next year, I can assure you of that. Sitting in that locker room with those guys, whats encouraging for me.
