KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterWith the new year comes a new way for workers to collect overdue paychecks. The Alachua County Wage Recovery Program, which offers a structured method for helping residents negotiate with employers to get withheld wages, launched Jan. 1. The ordinance passed 3-2 at an April County Commission meeting, about four months after its inception, according to Alligator archives. County equal opportunity manager Jacqueline Chung. We have received some calls with questions but no formal complaints yet, she said. When the complaints do ready, she said. One full-time employee has been designated to investigate wage theft as well as reported discrimination in employment or housing. covery process is for the employee to alert the employer that they owe wages within 60 days after the money was due. If the employee cant resolve the issue alone, he or she must contact the county Equal Oppormediation process started. Although no one has taken advantage of the system yet, employee rights activist Jeremiah Tattersall said the measure is confront employers who owe them money. Tattersall, who advocated for the measure with the Alachua County Wage Theft Task Force, said he knew of one person afraid to speak up about wage theft. But after the ordinance took effect, the employee felt comfortable enough to talk to the employer about the issue as the process dictates, and the worker received the withheld money. Having the legal backing helps people be bolder, Tattersall said. He said younger workers can recovery program.

Rap group sues FBIWorkaholics fans remember the episode in which Adam, Ders and Blake become entangled with the Juggalos, or devotees of the rap and hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse. Members of the Juggalos are, stereotypically, drug-addled low-income followers of the band famous for their yearly gathering or as the New York Daily News called it, weeklong bacchanal called the Gathering of the Juggalos. The Gathering is notorious for Juggalos engaging in blatant drug use and general bad behavior. That particular episode of Workaholics ends happily enough: A female Juggalo, played by the delightful Rebel Wilson, convinces Adam to care less about how others see him, and a nice Juggalo family charms Ders. ties as a gang. The Michigan chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union joined Insane Clown Posse and four fans to announce a lawsuit against the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice yesterday to protest what they perceive as the unfair labeling of a group of music fans. The New York Times stated, The seeds of this lawsuit were sown in 2011, when the F.B.I.s National Gang Intelligence Center published a report that described Juggalos as a loosely organized hybrid gang whose members were expanding into many U.S. communities. The New York Daily News article included links to other stories detailing various acts of crime that Juggalos has been held responsible for, including a testimony from former reality star Tila Tequila claiming Insane Clown Posse fans tried to kill her at a concert. According to the New York Daily News, Its time for the FBI to come to its senses and recognize that Juggalos are not a gang but a worldwide family united by the love of music, said one member of the rap duo, Joseph Bruce, aka Violent J, in a statement released by the Michigan American Civil Liberties Union, which joined the suit. Were skeptical of Insane Clown Posse proponents who claim the Juggalo community is a family united purely by a love of music. Its not as if the songs promote peace or positive change. Its 2009 hit Miracles contains the oftenquoted (and often-mocked) lyric, F****** magnets, how do they work? So is Insane Clown Posse genuinely concerned for the well-being of its fans? Probably not. The lawsuit smacks of an attempt to stir publicity for an irrelevant fringe group. Photos of the duo in their signature black-and-white clown press conference accompanied the online story. In full Insane Clown Posse gear, including oversized jerseys and chains, the two men stared pensively at the ACLU representative speaking for them. This is what revolution looks like!! commented one online reader.Legalized marijuana means higher tax N Years Day in Colorado was just about lighting up. But thats old news, of course. Its nearly impossible to live in a college town like Gainesville and not hear some excited stoners talk of the new weed mecca. Marijuanas legalization means more than a few people getting high: Tax revenue will rise, too.

But with strict regulations on growing and selling, its difare licensed to sell pot, and they collectively made more than Many of these shops are saying a sellout is imminent. Such a limited supply, of course, is increasing prices and might push some back to the black market where prices are low because of nonexistent taxes. That black market is part of why marijuana has had such a bad reputation for so long. This is not a column to glamorize weed or speculate how long itll be before its legal in Florida its to lament injustice many face because of this plant. Despite known medicinal properties, prescription weed will only be legal in 21 states and Washington, D.C. at least once New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo legalizes it by executive order. And even though there has never been a documented death because of marijuana, its beaten into our heads that it is a dangerous drug. It remains a schedule-one drug along with heroin, apparently worse than methamphetamine and cocaine. In a way, it is more dangerous because its illegal. Withof state coffers.

Its not just cartels that are threatened by the legalization of weed, though. The prison industry is as well. The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world, with roughly 25 percent of the worlds prisoners, according to an OP-Ed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Its high population stems from numerous nonviolent offenders housed in our prisons such as those charged with marijuana possession. Legalizing weed is one of the best things we can do for this hemisphere. It will reduce crime and the number of people in prison who shouldnt be there, and it will boost our economy.

EMILY COCHRANEAvenue WriterMore than 4.6 million people entered 2014 with a little less privacy after hackers published phone numbers and aciITcount information from the smartphone app Snapchat on New Years Eve. Although smartphone users used the app to share 10-second pictures of their festivities, the website SnapchatDB.info uploaded phone numbers and user Inames from 4,609,621 accounts from 78 area codes across the U.S. and Canada. The website censored the last two digits of each phone number to prevent spam and abuse, but it will possibly release the uncensored database to interested parties under certain circumstances. Having my account leaked it made me fearful of using social media and what its capable of, said Laura Turk, an 18-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering freshman. According to a statement published on the website, the leak was intended the Snapchat security pointed out in a Christmas Day report posted by Australia-based security research company Gibson Security. The report was publicly released after attempts to privately contact Snapchat were unsuccessful. It provided the previously unpublished code needed to match numbers with names and create fake accounts. Privacy is overstated on some of these social media platforms, said Bruce Floyd, UF social media specialist. The idea that you can post an image of yourself or something with the promise that only the intended viewer will see it is wishful thinking. In a blog post published Jan. 2, Snapchat promised to release an update that will allow users to opt out of the Find Friends part of the application and improve restrictions and rate limiting to prevent future attacks. The post also stated that pictures sent through the app were not leaked and only usernames and phone numbers were accessed. Additional websites have been set up by Gibson Security and other corporations for users to determine whether individual account information was leaked. Criticism from social media experts regarding its supposed privacy and its origin as a sexting app did not stop Snapchat from becoming one of the most downloaded apps of 2013, but it remains to be seen whether the leak has any effect on its usage. Im going to keep using it even though it annoys me a little bit that my number got leaked, said Kenneth Fernandez, a 19-year-old UF exploratory engineering freshman.

LAUREN ADAMSONAvenue Writer Before taking our chemistry tests, a friend of mine used to say we werent actually anxious, but we were instead excited, like electrons. I would just look at her and roll my eyes. No one could convince me that my increased state of agitated energy was anything but an expression of dread and fear. Of course, my friend has always been the more optimistic one, whereas when I see a phone call from my dad, my brain immediately jumps to someone has died, or Ive messed something up. Studies have shown that optimistic or happy people are healthier, more successful and live longer. And according to a December study published online in the American Psychological Associations Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, positive people have another thing going for them: They perform better on activities that trigger anxiety. The research, conducted by Alison Wood Brooks, an assistant professor of business administration at you are excited before a stressful event can be more effective than telling yourself to calm down. The experiment evaluated participants in different exercises like public speaking, karaoke singing and math-test taking. The individuals who were instructed to try to get excited performed better than those who were told to try to remain calm. Dr. Linda Lewis, licensed mental health counselor at UFs Counseling & Wellness Center, said for some people, the word anxious means unease or worry, whereas for others, it means eagerness or anticipation. The body reacts the same way whether one is anxious for positive or negative reasons, she said. The way we talk about our feelings has a strong study. So, saying Im excited out loud before a dreaded activity can actually increase feelings of excitement. Lewis said this is why counselors ask students to Though Lewis is not familiar with the full study, she said it may change how she works with students on anxiety before their exams. Sara Martin, health promotion specialist at GatorWell Health Promotion Services, said three strategies she teaches for stress management are preparation, deal mostly with study skills and time management. Therefore, you can tell yourself whatever you want, but if you do not have a solid foundation, you are still probably not going to do well on your exams. But if you are fully prepared and still anxious, you can try tricking your brain into thinking you are excited for that test and train it to perform better. Whats the worst you can do? Or, let me rephrase that. Whats the best that can happen?Excitement may lead to better performance

If youve registered your phone with Tinder, you are more than likely looking to entertain yourself with all of the one. Protest if you must, but who joins a hookup app without expecting anything less than people to get right to the point? With that said, here are a few ways to keep the creepers at bay. 1 Update your About Me section: If your description says something like SeXyGiRl25: I like to party, drink and Im up for literally anything!! somethings gotta change. 2Change your picture: If you are only allowed six pictures on Tinder and youre looking for normal conversations, why in the world would all of your photos be of you in little to no clothing or you participating in some type of lip-biting shenanigans? 3Be straightforward: Let everyone you talk to know you want to be treated with respect. If someone comes on a little too strong, take a few steps back. This is a hookup app, so like the script of a s porno, so if youre looking for a normal conversation, stay away from those who do.

Matt, you might have too much time on your hands. But we thank you. HAROLD SHAWAvenue WriterAs this Sundays 71st Golden Globe Awards approach, Martin Scorseses The Wolf Of Wall Street has garnered much attention. Nominated for Best Motion PicInside Llewyn Davis and Nebraska. Diverging from his last picture, in revolutionized 3-D, Scorseses might be hard to see blurred behind layers of debauchery, midget tossing and hedonism. But as each layer is peeled away like a cocainea core left and a message that has been told long before: Greed topples man. And, possibly, hookers topple man, too. Adapted for the screen by Terpersonal memoir of Jordan Belfort played by Leonardo DiCaprio time in prison for fraud crimes. of one of the most powerful individuals on Wall Street and his consequential demise from living a life of excess and deception. The raunchy cycle of self-indulgence that is Jordan Belforts life is brilliantly captured by DiCaprio. This is the wildest, most goosebump-inducing, three-hour movie that I have come across. But, if you are looking for how Belfort deis relatively disappointing. Instead, its an introspection into his life as he explains how he got away with his evil, genius plan through a perAlthough Scorsese is 71 years old, his style has not suffered. Voice-over is a huge element to how the story is told, reminiscent of Goodfellas voice-overs. Although Scorseses use of voice-over has been heavily criticized, it allows the audience to get in the mind of the charismatic crook and into the feverish roller coaster that he is shackled to. DiCaprio isnt the only actor that had a stellar performance. Matthew McConaughey plays the role of popping, excessive, masturbating boss. McConaugheys personality and infectiously witty demeanor steals the scene from DiCaprio with his satire of life on Wall Street. Jonah lifetime as Donnie Azoff, Belforts right-hand man. This is the best perhe is a versatile actor. As one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, The Wolf of Wall Street is nothing you have ever seen unless your life consisted of securities fraud, hookers, blow and morphine, because its awesome.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators target making decisionClass of 2015 defensive back Tyrek Cole will announce his oral commitment on Thursday. Read the story online at alligatorSports.org. Damontre Harris reenrolled at UF after leaving the basketball team. Read the story online at alligatorSports.org. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickNo. 10 Florida handled Southeastern Conference bottom-dweller South Carolina 74-58 on Wednesday night in the OConnell Center, but a right ankle sprain to senior point guard Scottie Wilbekin put a damper on the Gators program record-tying 24th straight home victory. Wilbekin left the game with 2:39 remaining after injuring his right ankle the one he injured on Dec. 2 against UConn on a missed layup attempt. He could not put any weight on his ankle and needed UF trainers to help him to the locker room. The severity of Wilbekins injury is unknown, and he is questionable for Floridas game at Arkansas on Saturday, coach Billy Donovan said. Wilbekin will miss the Gators practice today and will be re-evaluated by trainers on Friday. He was driving down the lane out of control, Donovan said of the play. Theres no movement. Its early in the clock. Hes just got to do a better job. Florida had a sub waiting for Wilbekin before the senior suffered the sprain. It sucks, because it was around the end of the game that he went and did his little minor ankle sprain or whatever it may be, center Patric Young said. But I think hes going to all right. I talked to him afterward and he said hes going to be OK. Before suffering his injury, Wilbekin was in the midst a 4-of-17 clip from beyond the arc in his previous three contests, he shot 5 of 11 for a team-high 17 points against the Gamecocks in his teams SEC opener. In 34 minutes of action, Wilbekin made 3 of 6 threepoint attempts, notched three assists, did not turn the ball over and sunk all four of his free throws. Young and senior forward Casey Prather each chipped in 13 points for the Gators (12-2, 1-0 SEC). Floridas win was not as lopsided as last seasons result the Gators beat the Gamecocks by 39 points last year in the ODome and held them to only 10 points at halftime. On Wednesday, South Carolina was within single digits of UF in the second half. The Gators jumped out to a 14-1 advantage in the But over a span of 2:08 late in the half, USC responded with a 7-0 run to cut UFs advantage to 34-21 at halftime. Eventually, South Carolina trailed by only eight points 5:09 into the second half as its 2-3 zone had Florida frustrated. Then, Florida increased its lead to 15 points thanks to a 12-5 run capped off by an alley-oop dunk by Dorian Finney-Smith. Utilizing a full-court press, the Gators forced the Gamecocks to 21 turnovers on Wednesday. court press.

Gators lose point guard in win against GamecocksWOMENS BASKETBALL GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandThrough Floridas ongoing winning streak, one thing has remained constant. Redshirt sophomore Cassie Peoples has been spearheading the charge as the Gators starting point guard since December began. The transition to starter occurred during Floridas trip to the Bahamas for the Junkanoo Jam. Peoples played a seasonhigh 28 minutes in the loss against Illinois State, only to top that with 35 minutes in a of the current eight-game win streak. She has averaged 33.6 minutes per game in those eight games. In the prior seven contests, Peoples averaged just under 21 minutes. One of our AAU coaches was at the game (against Kentucky), Jack Givens, a Kentucky great, assistant coach David Lowery said. Jack watched and told me, David, shes grown so much. Peoples accounts her growth this season to simply being able to play on a consistent basis. Just getting my timing back, she said. I havent played a game in forever, so its going to take time to get timing back in a game. Peoples collegiate career had been riddled with injuries; she has not played regularly since her high school days at San actly what coach Butler wants in her system and what she wants to do with her offense, she said.

MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Writer@Morgan_MoriartyFloridas offense will have a new look in 2014. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease is gone, taking his pro-style offense with him. Replacing them are Kurt Roper and an up-tempo spread offense. Roper, who comes to UF after coaching at Duke for six seasons, will have a lot of talent to work with in the 2014 recruiting class. The class currently has 12 commits on offense, including one quarterback, three wide receivers and six offensive lineman. Some of them have the potential to make an immediate impact. The Gator wide receiving corps needs a lot of improvement. Florin passing yards per completion. Current wide receiver commit Ermon Lane could turn things around quickly. 2014 class, according to Rivals. com. However, he has wavered on his commitment in the past month, especially after running Florida to Florida State last week. Lane said during the Under Armour practices that he and Cook have always wanted to play together. On Wednesday afternoon, Lane posted a picture on his Instagram account (@lane_to_live) of himself wearing a Florida State track suit. If Muschamp can keep him committed, it will be great news for Floridas passing game. If Lane does decommit, UF has just two other receivers in the class Moral Stephens and Ryan Sousa. Neither crack the top 20 in Rivals position rankings. There are also two three-star tight ends in the class Deandre Goolsby and Cyontai Lewis who will try to revamp the undeveloped position for Florida. The Rivals No. 2 quarterback from 2014, Will Grier, has a chance to get reps as a true freshman because of his impressive high school campaign. However, Grier, who is listed at under 190 pounds, will need to put on some weight before running the spread. He will likely redshirt in 2014, but if Jeff Driskel does not stay healthy, Grier might have to play early in his career. The position with the most obvious lack of depth for the Gators is the offensive line. Florida has starting experience returning in 2014. UFs best commit from this group is David Sharpe, whose him a menacing offensive tackle. Sharpe played left tackle in high school, and his size and improved footwork could potentially earn him a starting role in 2014. Last season, redshirt junior Max Garcia needed to move from his natural left guard position to left tackle after Tyler Moore suffered a season-ending arm injury in November. Moving Garcia back to left guard could give Sharpe a prime shot at getting meaningful reps at tackle. The newest member of Floridas class is Rivals three-star offensive tackle Kavaris Harkless. Harkless was previously committed to Louisville and was set to enroll this week until news of Charlie Strong going to Texas broke. He decided to enroll at UF instead and enrolled on Wednesday. Harkless is a versatile athlete who can play both left and right guard, as well as tackle. Harkless is a skilled run blocker, but he needs more consistency in pass blocking. Nolan Kelleher, Rivals 29thguard. Kelleher has good instincts and run blocks well, but can improve getting off the ball quicker. Kelleher has already enrolled. Two important prospects, Isaiah McKenzie and Jeff Jones, will 24. McKenzie can serve as insurance if Lane decommits, and Jones, whose stock is high after an MVP performance at the Under Armour game, can make up for UF losing Cook.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, 2014 Kan Li / Alligator StaffCassie Peoples drives down the lane during Floridas 88-77 win against North Florida on Nov. 10, 2013, in the OConnell Center. Peoples playing key role in Gators eight-game win streakas far as being able to improve, is just learning the system. Along with more minutes, Peoples rapid maturation has also been a contributing factor to her recent success. A point guard holds the most responsibility of any position on the ers when on offense. I think one of the things that has given her an opportunity to grow is that she has accepted the role of being a point guard, accepted the role of trying to get her teammates to follow something Amanda (Butler)s on her about all the time. Frequently, one can look to the bench and see Butler adamantly critiquing Peoples. Veinan uncommon scene. When something goes wrong, Im the guard, Peoples said. Shes basically telling me to control my team, navigate the team when Im on the court. Added Butler: Cassie is playing the most basketball that shes played since she was in high school. I think its just a natural evolution dence with the more minutes they get, the more game experiences they have. She does a ing things she did well and things she must do better. Shes great at being coached in the middle of a game, too. Butler, Peoples and Florida (12-3, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) are set to square off against a tough conference rival in Arkansas (14-1, 1-1 SEC) tonight in the OConnell Center. The Gators should be well-prepared for team similar to Floridas last two SEC opponents: Mississippi State and Kentucky. Tom (Collen) is a great coach and one of the strongest things he does is the level of consistency, Butler said. Its going to be good to be back at home, but were going to have a tough challenge.
