BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Staff Writerbdupuy@alligator.orgNow facing a bribery conviction, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert canceled his appearance for Accent Speakers Bureau next week. On Monday, Olmert was convicted of receiving bribes during his time as mayor of Jerusalem. Olmert was scheduled for an interview on April 9 with MSNBC foreign policy contributor Rula Jebreal at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Accent chairman Daniel Landesberg said the bureau was not given a reason for his cancellation. But if Olmert still wanted to speak at UF, even with his conviction, Accent would have allowed it. We strive to bring controversial speakers, he said. If he still wanted to come, we would have had him. Accent had not yet paid Olmert and Jebreal their combined $45,000 for the event. charges. Olmert resigned as prime minister in 2009 after corruption charges were made in another case. Rami Okasha, a 21-year-old UF electrical engineering junior, said that because of Olmerts past, he was offended that Accent had decided to bring him to UF. I think its wrong, said Okasha, president of Students for Justice in Palestine. Why should they be giving a person like that the platform to speak, even if he was the prime minister?

SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgFollowing a federal decision that ruled football players at Northwestern University count as employees, UF President Bernie Machen is looking for ways to get the universitys student athletes paid. Football players from Northwestern petitioned the university to allow them to unionize, which the Chicago National Labor Relations Board ruled in favor of. Peter Ohr, the boards regional director, found student athletes receiving grant-inaid scholarships are employees of the university, giving them the right to unionize. During last weeks Board of Trustees meeting, Machen discussed what the decision means for UF. Machen said that hes been involved in negotiations with the National Collegiate Athletic Association about the organizations cap on athletic scholarships for about a year. The NCAA limits how much a university can award student athletes, which Machen said ranges from $15,000 to $16,000 which falls Machen aims to pay athletes ABOUT 30 PERCENT OF CHARGES WERE RELATED TO SEX.

That makes up about 8 percent of the total discrimination and harassment charges California followed in third. Overall, the U.S. received about 94,000 charges in 2013, which is about 6,000 fewer than in 2012.

and how to appropriately respond to these situations should they arise in the workplace, he wrote in an email. Cecil Howard, the equal opportuof Equal Opportunity, said awareness is the top reason harassment charges are so high in Florida. Most people (in Florida) are against employers, and certainly more are going to take advantage of that opportunity, he said. You basically have protection on three levels in Florida local, state and federal where in some states you may only have protection at the federal level. Though Florida is still ranked second in the nation for charges, the number of complaints has decreased by about 350 from 2012. In fact, since 2011, the number of complaints has declined by about 500 total complaints. Lin credits the drop in complaints to extra efforts from employers on training programs and informing workers on how they can combat harassment. Instilling strong ethics in employees from day one is crucial in establishing an ethical workplace thats free of harassment and discrimination, Lin said.

On other days, tickets were $7.50. Hippodrome cinema director Alisha Kinman said the theater wanted to make ticket prices consistent. Kinman said the change came after some recent restructuring and analyzing of the ticket prices. It just made sense to me that we should have student prices, and senior prices for that matter, be for all of our regular showings, Kinman said. Were so close to the university that it would be silly for us not to do that. The implementation of the discount is not a sign that the Hippodrome is undergoIn fact, Kinman said the Hippodrome is expanding its options with new digital equipment that debuted in January.

GRAHAM HACKAlligator Contributing WriterUF is considering replacing eLearning, leaving a blank canvas for the universitys new course management system. Canvas, the proposed replacement, is already in use for some UF business and online classes, but the school is determining whether it wants to transition all classes to the platform. cational technology for UF Health, said Canvas simplicity and usability are its most attractive characteristics, particularly for students. From what I understand, [Canvas] was actually built from a student perspective, Graff said. With that in mind, Canvas has a leg up on Sakai. The system is built to work with tools like Google Docs and can notify students of class updates and announcements by text or email. It empowers you to receive communication the way that you want to consume it, Graff said. According to student and faculty feedback, the layout of Canvas is much easier to navigate, he said. Warner Olson, a UF industrial engineering student, said he has experienced issues with e-Learning. I have no clue where Im supposed to be going for certain things, he said. Everything is there; its just not easily accessible. Although the student feedback for Canvas has been positive, other students have differing opinions about whether a new course management system is needed. Other students like Mel Tutar, a UF industrial engineering student, said other than e-Learning freezing sometimes, she thinks the system If UF decides to switch to Canvas, it would take some time.

LAUREN TRONCOSOAlligator Contributing WriterMore than 30 students wrote letters to fellow Gators on Monday evening during Words of Encouragement, a program aimed to help students adjust to college life. Saneh Ste. Claire, an 18-year-old UF telecommunication freshman, proposed the idea to Graham Area Councils community service committee and then partnered with U Matter, We Care and To Write Love On Her Arms. Ste. Claire was inspired after a UF freshman and classmate having a hard time died recently. Ste. Claire thought if she had had just one person reach out to her, something could have been different. Hand-written, old-school letters from peers are more meaningful than online resources from strangers, she said. The committee will submit the letters to the Dean of Students Ofdents who have reached out. According to the Counseling & Wellness Centers annual report, about 45,000 student appointments were made in 2012-13. Of those, 2,660 presented anxiety problems, 1,938 were depressed, and 1,684 expressed social isolation and loneliness. Tina Tannen, a CWC mental health counselor, said resources on the centers website and programs like Words of Encouragement let students know theyre not invisible. Even if theyre still lonely, she said, they dont feel like theyre also crazy. TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 5 Emily Cochrane / Alligator StaffLunch Not on the Lawn Sans BonMembers of Student Government and Skanska, the construction managers behind the Reitz Union renovaTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE The Florida Legislature is pushing through a bill that targets websites that charge people a fee to remove their police mug shots, a practice that some criticize as a legal form of extortion. The bill targets companies that obtain booking photos from law enforcement agencies and then put them online, along with the persons name and the charges they face. They then charge arrestees hundreds to thousands of dollars to remove them or face continued embarrassment. Some websites refuse to remove the photos even if the charges are later dropped or if the person is acquitted. Under the proposed law, an individual could obtain a court order for removal. The website would be subject to a $1,000within 14 days. Florida is trailing several states in addressing the practice by such websites as mugshots.com. States across the U.S. are moving on this, so were hoping to catch up, said Sen. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee, the author of a measure that would require mug shot sites to remove booking photos at no charge. State and local governments would be exempt from the law. Soto said he worked with the Florida Sheriffs Association in drafting the bill. Mug shot companies, as well as media outlets, use Floridas strong open records laws to obtain content for their sites. Some commercial sites have begun to include instructions on how to get a mug shot removed, charging by the arrest. At mugshots.com, one arrest costs $399 with the removal fee rests. Removing booking photos for free would sap at least half of the operating revenue for mugshots.com, said Marc G. Epstein, a Florida lawyer who represents the company. We dont solicit business, and we want to get to a point where all the revenue we get is from advertising rather than ads and removal, Epstein said. But removing for free at this point? When legislators work for free, then well work for free. Wyoming, Georgia and Utah have all passed laws similar to the one proposed by Soto.State bill targets websites that dont remove mug shotsCAMPUSGators write words of encouragement

So many raunchy jokes we could make! punny headlines more than usual! And if theres one thing we learned from looking through Alligator archives Monday night, its that our predecessors were pretty creative when it came to April Fools Day. In 1971, the Alligator editors designed a phony front page with a masthead reading The Floreda Agitator, referencing the papers old nickname. In 1986, we were The Incandescent Florida Instigator. In 1991, a phony letter to the editor from Prez Lambada, UF Grand High Poohbah alerted readers that Student Government would be abolished: We, the campus administrators who decide the fate of your academic career with our every bureaucratic butt twitch, have some exciting news for you. All your student activity fees will be returned so you yourself can make bad decisions about how to spend them. Also, campus parking decals have been abandoned. Park your car where you like we just dont care anymore. But perhaps the best came in 2005: Donovan takes job with UF rival Kentucky topped the front page, and at the bottom was a story about UF Transportation and Parking Services banning large cars from campus for taking up too much room. Among the affected was the Student Body president, who whined about having to park his limousine elsewhere. April Fools Day is important because it shows readers that there are actual humans behind the news. We like to have fun, too. But the line between hilarious and whatthe-hell-were-they-thinking is all too easy to cross. Like all pranks, April Fools Day editions can be funny if done right. In general, it seems that corporations have a better time on April Fools Day than newspapers. Just look at the 1996 stunt that Taco Bell pulled, when the company announced via seven full-page ads in the countrys leading newspapers that it had bought the Liberty Bell to alleviate the national debt. The new name for the privately owned American relic? The Taco Liberty Bell. So why not go HAM with the jokes this year? The media is increasingly scrutinized and criticized for careless errors and biased coverage. In this age of informathey can take our coverage at face value. Were not trying to be a buzzkill we just think solid journalism is responsible and therefore honest. We never want to dupe our readers, even for the sake of comedy. That would only distract from our daily goal of publishing as much liberal, GDI trash as possible. Just kidding. ;) 111 TOTAL VOTES48% YES 52% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgMondays question: Have you had sex on UFs campus? Todays question: Should student athletes be paid?Chew on this: Paleo diet isnt perfectTheres a new fad in dieting commonly referred to as the paleo diet. The name is short for the paleolithic diet and is inspired by caveman more accurately referred to as Neanderthal diets. The diet stipulates the participant eat foods that the Neanderthals hunted and gathered. This includes the eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Therefore, it discourages those on the diet from eating sugar, dairy, grains and processed foods. The diet claims to reduce the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and chronic degenerative diseases while also increasing weight loss, athletic performance, loss of acne and libido. Basically, this diet claims to be everything you ever dreamed of and more. Doesnt this seem too good to be true? Of course eating unprocessed meats and making natural food choices will result in a healthier lifestyle. UF basketball star Patric Young went on the diet this past year, and have you seen his arms? Theyre crazy. But Young is a collegiate athlete who consistently exercises, and Im assuming the guy could eat McDonalds every day and still be a thousand times more athletic than most men. Essentially, the diet seems like a pretty great choice. Some studies show a small amount of weight loss, normal blood sugar levels and overall better health. It seems the only major health risk one takes while on the diet is missing out on some key nutrients by depriving the body of dairy and grains. These nutrients, like calcium, are important to growth development in children. There is a reason our agricultural-turned-consumer-based culture is much taller than most of our ancestors. We get more hormones in our food now, some good and some bad, but for better or worse, these hormones help us grow taller and, subsequently, fatter. That being said, our huntergatherer ancestors did not have a choice when it came to what they ate, meaning they had to of food they could and wouldnt pass up on a meal because it wasnt healthy. Im sure if the Neanderthals could exchange cheeseburgers, they would have done so in a second. The Paleolithic era was not the time of domestication, therefore they could not access most of the genetically tion happened during the Neolithic Era, which started about 10,000 B.C. During that period of time, humans learned how to modify nature to their culinary desires. This fad diet, although not unhealthy and not too ridiculous in principle, has incited some people to take it up and gloat. Its great if people want to try new things to improve their health, but more often than not, when Im talking with someone who brings up the paleo diet, I get a sense of superiority. Being on a diet from 200,000 years ago is the ultimate hipster move. Takeaway message: Do whatever makes you happy, but dont be condescending about it when you make your decision. Everyone has his or her own path to food enlightenment. As long as you exercise and maintain a healthy diet, you shouldnt run into too many nongenetic medical problems. Consult with your doctor if you think the paleo diet is something you would consider starting, Know before you go paleo. Rachel Kalisher is a UF anthropology and classics junior.

TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Even for a morning person like me, 7:30 a.m. isnt the best time to hear a pal from high school rant about his family troubles. But I decided to continue the phone conversation joying the previous nights episode of The Daily Show, I was listening to depressing personal problems. But sometimes you and this was one such rare occasion. I listened to my friend go through one. As he paused at the end of each, I would start advising him of a logical way of how he could easily resolve the utes, the conversation followed this format: him telling me the problem lution until the very end. With no more grievances for me to help him with and the call coming to a close, I was taken aback to hear him end on an unappreciative note. advices. I hung up civilly, in case he had any more insult to add a good friend in that conversation. But how, you might ask? follow, logical advice on how to solve his personal issues? First, lets go back to what it means to be a friend. We have countless buddies who will readily join us in having a blast and countless others colleagues, we call them wholl bond for professional reasons. But to call someone a friend means he or she is the rare person who bases his or her entire relationship on caring for you as you already are. to your feeling bruised will reveal whether that person actually cares about you, whether that person is a friend. Friends wont for their own ease. Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change, reads one description. When folks tell us of their family problems, their tough days at school or how they felt hurt in some petty social interaction, its natural for us not want to hear of such downers. But since appearing coldhearted is taboo, we avoid having to deal with a troubled persons distress through some common tactics: pile on actually care about that person and rarely are we friends. Caring for a friend in distress, however trivial the problems appear, means validating that friends deeper pain by listening and simply being there. As the pain that can be told is but half a pain, so the pity that questions has little healing in its touch. What Lily craved was the ton line on a protagonists need for empathy. Lets start being the type of friend that Henri Nouwen, the late Catholic scholar, spoke of: When we honestly ask ourselves that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair reavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Using hysteria this serious issue as another thing women have blown dictable emotions. servative think tank American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. Kitchens argument in the Time column is that the actions of a small number of individuals, rather than Kitchens says that rapists are despised, so there must not be a cultural issue with rape in America. Its easy to believe that just bad guys rape that rapists jump out from bushes at night with a knife or gun. That kind of rape is easy to label as wrong. But people start to divide on rape when the victim was wearing scant clothing, was promiscuous or was dating the alleged rapist. However, 73 percent of sexual assaults are committed by nonstrangers, and more than 50 percent take place within one mile of the victims home or even at the victims home, according to Rape, cording to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape. Though American culture may not outwardly promote rape, its exploitation of women passively tolerates rape culture. operate in conveying the message that women are there lutely ludicrous ideas.

Rape culture is school dress codes that tell girls their knees are too provocative ture is jokes about sexual assault. Rape culture is women being taught to avoid rape and men not being taught to not rape. Rape culture is holding your pepper spray in one hand and your keys between your knuckles in the other as you walk back to your car at night.

EMILY CARDINALIAlligator Staff Writerecardinali@alligator.orgProtests in Taiwan have hit the two-week mark, and some Taiwanese students at UF are standing in solidarity with protesters overseas. er Movement by Taiwanese media, began March 18 when students demanded a review of a trade agreement with China, the CrossStrait Service Trade Agreement, which they suspected was expedited through legislature by the majority party, The Diplomat Magazine reported. The protesters fear the repercussions the trade agreement could have on Taiwans economy and are looking to pass a bill that would monitor trade negotiations, said Li-Li Chen, a 32-year-old fourth-year UF political science Ph.D student from Taipei, Taiwan. About 200 students occupied the Legislative Yuan (national legislative building) to show their disagreement with the government, (which is) basically violently bypassing the law, Chen said. The government dispatched the police force and tried to force them out. Its against the law of human rights. On March 20, UF students who support point statement demanding respect for the democratic process in legislature, a government renegotiation with China and support for the protesters in Taiwan. This is a very complicated issue because it involves the economy and politics, said Ping Huang, a 30-year-old UF fourthyear biology Ph.D student from Taichung, Taiwan. A lot of critics try to group (the protesters) as You are anti-China. You are anti-economic development. But I dont think thats the point of value they are trying to promote. The movement has since multiplied, moving to the presidential building ing Ketagalan Boulevard, the 10-lane road symbol of the movement. Its small, but it has its democratic spirit for human rights and democracy, Chen said. Thats why were proud of Taiwan. As in Syria and Venezuela, Huang credits social media to the spread of the protests. side the Legislative Yuan due to the ease of communication online. Other groups, including adults, began to gather as traditional media picked up the protests, she said. Huang said the movement is important for UF students who share similar beliefs about civil rights. When the government cannot represent their people, then like the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, you should stand up for that, Huang said. I know for general UF students, they might not even be able to identify where Taiwan is, but if they share these kind of beliefs, then learning what is going on is important for them and important for us. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 2014 AP PhotoThousands of protesters are seen in front of a stage with a banner reading Condemn the violent government! in support of Taiwan during a massive protest.

Source: The New York Times ITS INSPIRED BY HUMANS OF NEW YORK. ADRIANA BARBATAlligator Contributing WriterGabrielle Beecher gets dressed, goes to class and then sits down with strangers to listen to their stories. Beecher, a 19-year-old UF journalism freshman, runs a Facebook page called Humans of UF, where she collects quotes and photos of people around campus. She was inspired by the popular Facebook page Humans of New York, she said. I became so fascinated with how people were so willing to open up in such a short period of time, she said. She said her goal for the page is to help the Gator Nation feel connected, she said. Its uniting people through pictures and quotes, so theyll get to see the things that brochures dont show you, she said. Will Cuadra, a 22-year-old UF chemical engineering senior, said the page shows diversity on campus. I think its good cause everyone you meet has their own Beecher talks to people who look bored or too interesting to pass up, she said. Her trick to getting people to open up is skipping the small talk. I always use as my warm-up question, Whats something about you that people would be surprised to know? she said. Sigal Carmenate, a UF visual art studies sophomore, said she found the page after a friend posted about it on Facebook. I feel like Humans of UF is just gonna make people realize that we can have a deeper connection, the 19-year-old said. Its just a conversation away. I became so fascinated with how people were so willing to open up in such a short period of time.Gabrielle BeecherUF journalism freshman
