THE HOUSE KILLED A SIMILAR BILL. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgBig beer bills are continuing to bluster their way through state government, leaving local breweries, brewpubs and craft beer drinkers still clouded with disappointment. Although efforts to permit the 64-ounce growler were presented in a bill in the House of Representatives previously, the legislation was peppered with unclear language and stipulations that left state breweries severely limited. The House bill has been squashed for now, but a new bill in the Senate, SB 1714, is presenting the brew community with similar regulations and issues. The bill allows the sale of half-gallon growlers, but numerous limitations on distribution practices are written into the legislation. For example, the bill mandates breweries sell bottles and cans to distributors. To sell to their own customers, they must buy the stock cant markup in price. It also prevents brewers from opening wineries or cideries. Barron Humphries, owner of Hoggetowne Ale Works, said the bill is written this way because some legislators want to ensure the three-tier system stands strong, despite most breweries thinking the system is outdated. If you have 10 different breweries in a room together talking, theyre all going to say the system is garbage, he said. (This bill) means more regulation and more loopholes to jump through.Senate bill could mark up costs for local craft breweries LIFESTYLE BRADLEY NORMANAlligator Contributing WriterTax Day has come and gone. But for students who forgot to apply for a refund, theres still time. The same cant be said for individuals who owe the IRS money. UF accounting professor Gary returns is strict. If you missed the deadline, then youre going to be subject to certain penalties or interests on any unpaid tax liabilities, he said. However, McGill said those applying for tax refunds wont face any serious problems by missing the deadline. The penalty and interest is based on what you owe the IRS, he said. If they owe you via refund, then the base for the penalty is obviously zero. McGill said its easy to get an the deadline. However, he said an extension is simply a way to delay completing the paperwork. It does not give you an extension of time to pay any tax thats due, McGill said. What youre supposed to do is estimate what your tax liability will be. Filers should pay their calculated tax liability, the estimated amount owed, when they apply for an extension.

THERE WILL BE FREE FOOD. BRIDGET ANDERSONAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences is celebrating its 100th anniversary of Florida Extension with guest speakers, free food and a ceremonial cake cutting. The event will take place today on the Plaza of the Americas from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The extension, established by the Smith-Lever Act of 1914, has allowed researchers at UF and Florida A&M University to convert their research into usable knowledge to share with millions of Floridians over the past 100 years, according to the 100th Anniversary of Florida Extension blog. Nick Place, dean and director for IFAS Extension, said the event is sigit offers the opportunity to educate the university community on the outreach mission of the extension. Place emphasized that the event not only celebrates past successes, but it also offers a chance to celebrate what is to come in the future of extension and outreach. We have had great success for the last 100 years, but really what we want to be focusing on is what we need to be doing for the next 100 years to address some of these big issues we face in this state, he said. Candace ONeill, a 20-year-old UF dietetics junior, said she heard about the IFAS extension program through guest presenters in her community nutrition classes. From what I have learned, I think Extension does a great job at bening things to the community level to people that need it most, she said.IFAS celebrates 100 years KATHERINE BROWNAlligator Contributing WriterAn undergraduate-run psychology research laboratory at UF is using crowdfunding to raise money for its studies. The Life Satisfaction and Excellence Lab is currently trying to raise $3,000 on GoFundMe.com, a crowdfunding website. The money will help pay off the labs debts. It will also pay for a website it uses to track its research progress and pay people for taking surveys. The lab has trouble raising money through grants because its completely run by undergraduate psychology students, said Tiffany Dawson, a research assistant in the lab. Dawson, a 21-year-old UF psychology senior, said the lab doesnt get attention from organizations with grant money. He said that is because graduate and doctoral programs receive the money instead. The crowdfunded money will go toward two programs the lab currently uses. One, Excellence University, is a website the lab uses to track progress toward goals for its research. Everyone in the lab has an account in Excellence University, said Megan Turner, a 21-year-old UF psychology junior who works in the lab. Its really helpful for you to make sure you do complete your goals. The other program is Amazon Mechanical Turk, often called MTurk, which sends out the labs surveys to a wide range of people to improve survey results. The survey participants get paid for each one they take. It gives us a different sampling base, said Turner, the fundraising chair for the crowdfunding project. With MTurk, the lab can send its surveys to a much larger population. Its more generalizable as opposed to so focused on the UF student population, Turner said. Approximately $2,000 from the campaign will help pay off current debts, she said. The other $1,000 will go toward future studies.

Joshua Aubuchon, a lawyer and lobbyist for the Florida Brewers Guild, summarized the bills regulations as punitive. He said if breweries want to sell their beer and then have to buy it back from distributors, not only is the mark-up price a factor, but also, distributors dont necessarily have to do anything with the beer. In other words, they just pocket the extra money. (Distributors) would make more money without having to do a thing, Aubuchon said. Under current law, Swamp Head (and other local breweries) doesnt need to sell bottles to distributors. Why would that be in the bill other than to be punitive? He said another issue with the bill is unclear language that would make anything in the legislation prohibited, At the local level, Neal Mackowiak, a brewer for Tall Pauls Brew House, said he is unhappy about the bill because the brewpub had plans to expand into a brewery in the future. Ultimately, the idea was to become a brewery similar to Swamp Head, he said. When we were told of what this Senate bill was, we realized it was a hugely limiting factor for us. Mackowiak said he dislikes that beer doesnt need to switch hands for the distributors to make extra money. We basically just write a check to the distributor to sell our beer, he said. It almost seems like mob-like tactics that you need the security of (distributors) to be able to run your business. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2014 Brooke Baitinger / AlligatorGiving GreenAnimal lovers and college students gathered Wednesday on the Plaza of the Americas at the Student Animal Alliances annual VegFest.

Ted Yoho sat down with UF students Wednesday to discuss a program that offers college opportunities to low-income and Six student representatives from the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program joined Yoho. The program guides 25 students from under-represented backgrounds in their pursuit of a Ph.D. The six McNair Scholars expressed appreciation toward the program and urged Yoho to support it. The program is federally funded through the Higher Education Act, which is up for renewal in the U.S. House of Representatives this year. Program Director Samesha Barnes said she looks for students who are passionate about their education but need support to achieve their goals. She said she is trained to look for diamonds in the rough to engage in the intensive research program and provide students with mentorship and academic opportunities. Yoho said hearing students direct experiences helps him guide federal funding. Meeting students lets him see how current programs can serve as solutions for the future. Jose Castaneda, a 21-year-old UF political science and economics junior and a McNair Scholar, said the program gives students an edge. It opens up a new world that you have never had the chance to see, he said. Yoho said he resonates with economically disadvantaged students because he was once in their position. Im one of six brothers Nobody in our family went to college, he said. I know exactly where (theyre) coming from.Rep. Ted Yoho meets with McNair Scholar students at UF BEER, from page 1 doesnt seem right. Gehres, a former FSU football player, was teammates with Winston for a year and said the allegations seem out of context with what he knew of Winston. Hes a guy with great character, Gehres said. He was a high-class kind of guy. In response to The Times story, FSU posted an open letter online. Part of it read: FSU does not tolerate sexual assault. Even one sexual assault is a problem. Like other colleges and universities that are grappling with this issue, we actively provide programs and educate students on safe behavior, the meaning of consent and how to properly report cases of sexual misconduct. Sarah Timoti, a 20-year-old FSU humanities and media production sophomore, said the city police department and the university should be looked at as separate entities. She said the university did all it could. I do think that the Tallahassee Police Department could have handled it better, and they admitted that, she said. Students were outraged, not just because it was Jameis Winston but because of the way the case was handled. FSU, from page 1pay the correct amount, even afbe charged interest and penalties for late payment. Stephen Bolden, a 21-year-old student assistant for the Heavener School of Business, recently learned he is not required to pay taxes.

Students under the age of 24 are considered dependents and year. If students dont meet dependency requirements, they must is more than $10,000. Bolden said not paying taxes on time would probably be worse for someone with a lot at stake because the government can do things such as foreclose on homes and repossess cars to collect any money owed. I dont think that would ever happen to me if I didnt pay my taxes, he said. I dont really have anything to lose.

Volta Coffee, Tea and Chocolate, a cafe in downtown Gainesville, was ranked No. 22 in the Daily Meals ranking of Americas 50 Best Coffee Shops. Voltas owner, Anthony Rue, opened the cafe in Gainesville six years ago and has watched it rise in prominence. Rue, a self-proclaimed coffee nerd, said he wanted to create a cafe that was more than just a hangout spot. Making coffee that makes people smile is why we are in business, he said. Its incredibly satisfying to be able to open peoples minds to something as common as coffee. Rue has judged barista competitions in the U.S. and abroad. These experiences have taught him skills and techniques of the trade, he said, which he brought back to Gainesville.

From 2000 to 2010, carbon emissions grew more rapidly than in each of the previous three decades, according to a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. That means theres a lot of work to be done. The IPCC operates under the United Nations to assess cording to a news release about this latest report, the IPCC ing. If nothing changes, temperatures will rise between 3 and 5 degrees Celsius. That could spell disaster for climate patterns and agricultural yield, meaning worse weather The international goal is to keep global warming within 2 degrees, but doing that requires major institutional and technological change to even come close to meeting that goal, according to an IPCC news release. The world must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 70 percent by 2050 and be near zero by the end of the century to be on target. narios modeled by the IPCC is to bring emissions relating ny, Italy and Spain. Its not as crazy as the talking heads would have you expect. Even though the IPCC report released in September 2013 stated there was 95 percent certainty that humans were the cause of climate change, the U.S. is on track for projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline. That project would move the tar sands, crude oil mixed with clay and dirt, braska. Of course, supporters say it helps with jobs and energy independence. But they overlook the potential for environmental monplace. Dont forget about the chemical spill in West Virginia earlier this year related to the pendence? Companies like Exxon market themselves as green by touting natural gas, but they fail ing into the other environmental concerns that come with Dont expect an answer from the top, especially in the U.S. Its unfortunate, but the oil and gas industry is one of the top lobbying powers in Washington, giving politicians more than $144 million in 2013 alone. In the meantime, the government raises awareness about how citizens can help conserve. Lets be honest with ourselves: Remembering to turn out the lights when you leave a room isnt going to decrease the worlds carbon emissions enough. The government needs to get its priorities in order and its, which capitalism forces society to do, society must turn to what will happen in the long run. Thats the one drawback of ditching fossil fuels and ing to the IPCC report, consumption will grow by 1.6 to 3 to combat climate change would only slow that growth by 0.06 percent per year. the world we know. Until it gets sorted out, Ill be lying on the ground with all the lights off to do my part to conserve. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His columns appear on Thursdays. FSU seriously mishandled Winston caseThe New York Times investigation published Wednesday reopened the discussion of the sexual assault allegations el, Jameis Winston. The writer, Walt Bogdanich, compiled an extensive timeline that answered many questions on what exactly went wrong. Records show that Florida States athletic department knew about the rape accusation early on, in January 2013, when the assistant athletic director called the police to inquire about the case, Bogdanich wrote. Even so, the university did nothing about it, allowing Mr. Winston to play the full season without having to answer any questions. The takeaway from the Winston case and all the media lahassee Police and FSU simply did nothing. They didnt follow up with the three strong leads the victim provided. They waited nearly a year to interview a key witness who had admitted to gulo, the police investigator who handled the case, previously organization with nearly $150 million in assets and the primary FSU released a statement following the articles publication asserting that The Times piece was misleading. Certainly, no one is accusing the university of not taking sexual assault seriously or not providing resources for victims. However, in this case, ed with evidence of a sexual assault, and it appears an attempt to protect a star football player is the culprit. Campus rape is already a problem; President Barack Obama created a task force to combat it, after all. Rabid football culture is also a problem see Steubenville, Penn State and the fact that one in three college sexual assaults are committed by athletes, TPD and FSUs mishandling is much more than an abstract, academic argument that rape culture exists. Its the result of the sity athletics and one prominent football player at the expense of women against whom heinous crimes have been committed. edy. FSU has demonstrated that, despite its vague claims that it does not tolerate sexual assault, they prioritize athletes over tigation, FSU will be held more accountable when it comes to investigating sexual assault and rape claims, and TPD will have a major overhaul. Beyond FSU, we hope more schools including UF will give immediate and thorough attention to sexual assault and rape reports as they happen. Only then can the cycle of victim blaming and preferential treatment of athletes be broken. 45 TOTAL VOTES62% YES 38% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgWednesdays question: Do you pick up your dogs poop?

ANDREA SARCOSAvenue WriterNothing says Easter Sunday like brunch. Check out these local restaurants and order a mimosa. After all, brunch is kind of the most important meal of the day. East End Eatery 1202 NE Eighth Ave. Rachel Bouchillon, a 22-yearold UF interdisciplinary ecology graduate student, said East End Eatery is one of her favorite brunch places. I really like the tempeh scramble there, and sometimes Ill get one of their Eggs Benedict, too, she said. She said she likes going there with a small group of friends because its quaint. It has a more Gainesville-resident feel to it, she said. Sandra Carlisi, owner of East End Eatery, said the restaurant has specials for brunch every week and tries to cater to different themes. Its upcoming focus is Easter. Were doing a Black Forest ham with roasted potatoes, and peas and carrots, Carlisi said. One of the other Easter kind of foods is asparagus and a champagne omelette. The Top 30 N. Main St. Ana Fajardo, a 21-year-old UF womens studies junior, said she likes eating brunch at The Top because of its vegan options. Fajardo recommends getting there early because it gets busy fast. David Gordon, manager at The Top, said he wont add any special Easter-themed brunch items. He said The Top generally has an omelette or French toast special. Were a pretty eclectic restaurant. We have different kinds of Benedicts, also chicken and biscuits, traditional comfort foods, he said. You can get anything you want, really. Brunch at The Top is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., but Gordon said it usually runs out of food quickly. We have church-goers and nihilists alike. We have all sorts of people that come to the brunch, so we try to cater to that broad stroke, he said. The Flying Biscuit Cafe 4150 NW 16th Blvd. Amanda Di Lella, a 21-year-old UF telecommunication junior, said she and her boyfriend go almost every Sunday to have brunch. Its really good food, and its not too expensive. Theres a lot of people that go there on Sundays, she said. But she said if you plan on going, call ahead. Me and my boyfriend always get the grits, biscuits, and the French toast is awesome, Di Lella said. The Flying Biscuit Cafe will have its normal breakfast menu all day during their Sunday hours from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. 101 Downtown 201 Southeast 2nd Avenue We are doing a very special brunch on Easter as a whole because we actually started a brand new brunch menu, Phillip Hampton, assistant general manager, said.

TEODORA YORDANOVAAvenue WriterSummertime is right around the corner, and it might be a good idea before heading to the gym to prep your beach-ready body. ness, strength and conditioning at tion and offers up some advice for the proper workout. Myth: Youll burn more fat if you exercise longer at a lower intensity. Truth: High-intensity exercise can be hard to sustain for long periods, even though it does burn more calories than low-intensity workouts. Regular physical activity and a healthy diet will lead to a body uals body frame. (The American College of Sports Medicine) recommends 150 minutes of physical activity a week which can include a longer duration at a lower intensity (55-65% of maximum heart rate) or a shorter duration at a higher intensity (85% of maximum heart rate), Dupuie wrote in an email. Myth: You should stretch before a workout. Truth: It is more effective to stretch after a workout when your joints and muscles are still warm, according to an article by the MD Anderson Cancer Center. Although stretching before a workout does little to prep your body for exercise, stretching afterward does more to maintain and improve circulation. And while youre doing it, remember to take long, deep breaths. In through your nose, out through your mouth. Myth: Incorporating a sports drink or protein shake in a workout regimen gives better results. Truth: Those might be useful in emergencies, but your best protein source is from real food. Studies have been inconsistent regarding high levels of post-workout protein intake with supplements, according to an article by Mens Health. Protein shakes and supplements are not regulated by the FDA and are something to be cautious of as their list of ingredients may not always be factual and the proprietary blend that is listed could encompass anything. Whole, natural foods provide the nutrition that most individuals need on a daily basis, Dupuie wrote. Myth: Laughter is a form of exercise. Truth: A 2012 Oxford University study showed similarity between laughter and working out in terms of endorphins released during both activities. Long story short, laughing and exercising both help to release endorphins and boost your mood, but unfortunately the two arent interchangeable. Laughter can certainly elicit a hormone response similar to the is achieving higher VO2, becoming better at a sport or increasing our 1 repetition maximum, laughter program design, Dupuie wrote.Get the facts before starting your summer beach body workout

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2014 JULIA GLUMAvenue WriterCall Me Maybe and I Love College are expecting. Well, not exactly a baby, but it is time for a new Song of the Summer to join their little family you know, those singles that get played a million times on the radio but you dont care because theyre so damn catchy. cial but highly coveted, and the single that takes this years cake will join the ranks of classics like California Gurls and I Gotta Feeling. So, yeah, its kind of a big deal. Spring may just be getting in full swing, emerging. Heres our breakdown: 1. Mmm Yeah Austin Mahone ft. Pitbull mer nights. Sure, its simple the words mmm and yeah comprise at least 70 percent of the lyrics but that just means you dont have to focus too hard. No deep feelings, no problem, and thats exactly what we want in our Song of the Summer. 2. West Coast Lana Del Rey tion spectrum, theres West Coast. This new release is certainly not upbeat but is ume while you lie in bed with the windows open (and fan cranked, lets be real) reading a romance novel. Although easy on the ears, West Coast is a little too intense to win Song of the Summer. 3. G.U.Y. Lady Gaga Gaga is back, and shes of the Summer award. nuendo, a strange music powering message want the power to leave you, she sings so its bound to be a Song of the Summer hit. We wouldnt mind cially because its chorus is so hypnotizing. 4. Summer Calvin Harris This song has, like, 30 words total, but its nice and sweet with a great beat. Its a solid nominee for Song of the Summer; after all, its literally called Summer. This single is smooth but unfortunately underwhelming ing with other artists. It needs at least three times more lyrics to win the title. 5. I Wanna Get Better Bleachers tie your hair back with a bandanna because this indie anthem could be your hipster Song of the Summer. fun. musician Jack sounds great.

The days are hotter, the pools are sparkling, and each studio is releasing its best attempt to get your money. Heres a guide to what you should see in theaters, wait for on Redbox or just skip altogether. SEE:X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23) Class, Days of Future Past combines the old X-Men franchise with the new in a timetravel story line that is ambitious and excitwith horns and an evil smile is enough to draw me in. Disneys retelling of Sleeping view looks like it has amazing visuals and top-notch fantasy action. The soundtrack looks great too, headlined by an ethereal Lana Del Rey Once Upon a Dream cover. The Fault in Our Stars (June 6) Im not going to lie I have a huge crush on Shailene Woodley. Fresh off her recent Divergent success, Woodley plays teenage cancer patient Hazel Grace Lancaster in REDBOX:Godzilla (May 16) I admit that I was pretty skeptical about this remake, but after seeing the trailers, Im excited. an Cranston. After a climate experiment goes horribly wrong, most life is wiped off the face of the Earth, except for a few hundred safely on board a perpetually moving train. Refreshingly, this is not an apocalypse thriller but an ambitious drama about class and survival. Starring Captain America star Chris Evans and the always-welcome Tilda Swinton. Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug. 1) Marvels next team of action heroes hits the big screen but this time theyre in space, and theyre all wanted criminals. The only reason I wont see this in theaters is because Im not sold on Chris Pratt as a dramatic lead. Assuming he can pull it off, though, this could be an Avengers-level hit. It also stars Zoe Salley Coopers voice as a burly raccoon. Yep, a raccoon.SKIP:The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (May 2) and nine times out of 10, superhero sequels are worse than their originals. Electro can save this one. Andrew roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Am I the only one who thinks Stone can do better? I would rather watch paint dry than watch another Transformers movies continue to draw in millions of dollars. The only very small glimmer of hope comes in the replacement of the marginally less insufferable Mark Wahlberg. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Aug. 8) Do I even need to explain why you shouldnt see this one? I actually dont know what Im less excited about the fact that this classic childrens series is being corrupted by Michael Megan Fox.See, Redbox and skip: A critics guide to this summers big blockbuster season

Scorers such as freshmen Sammi Burgess and Mollie Stevens and junior Shannon Gilroy have been essential to the teams success. Having those supporting scorers for Burgess, Stevens and Gilroy like sophomores Devon Schneider and Carly Ross has been an even bigger piece to the offenses puzzle. Coming into the season, many expected Gilroy and junior teammate Nora Barry would carry the team in goals and assists. Instead, Burgess has been Gilroys go-to player when she is being faceguarded or triple-teamed. But Burgess has faltered lately. As one of Floridas biggest scorers behind Gilroy, the freshmans forced her teammates to step up when she couldnt make it happen. Heading into Floridas match against Vanderbilt on Sunday, her accuracy and completing her shots. The Forest Hill, Md., native went as far as upgrading to a longer stick. I shot a lot after practice last week, just because, you know, they werent falling for me, Burgess said. But I actually have a longer stick now. Im just thinking a little less when I play. It seems that with the adjustments since the Penn State game, she has returned to the Burgess that Florida fans know and missed. Against the Commodores, Burgess was the leading scorer with a total of four goals and one assist. Two of her goals came on back-toAfter putting no points on the board for the Gators against the Nittany Lions and Blue Jays, Burly get back to her old style of play. That little change was like, you know, its something, give me something, Burgess said. I think it helped me to get around defenders with my stick more and get a little bit more power behind the ball with my shots. Not only was Burgess performance on Sunday a career-high goal mark, but it was also enough to make the freshman the ALC Rookie of the Week a title that she has received two other times this season. Burgess scoring issues werent a concern for coach Amanda OLeary. Her work on shooting in the last two weeks is all a part of helping the freshman grow. We challenge Sammi to get better, OLeary said. She had struggled a little bit. She put in some extra work this week. Her mental state was one that she was going to go out and have fun. Sammis her harshest critic. She makes a mistake and its world ending. Its one thing weve worked on her with.

Im really impressed with Schwarz said. Even since fall when we had 6 a.m.s, they were always there, always on time, always working hard. This year, its really weird to see someone where I was in their position last year and I still feel like a freshman sometimes but their composure and their attitude and positivity throughout no matter what were going through has really been impressive. Florida opened 2014 with 22 straight wins including victories against top-25 teams in South Florida, Michigan, Minnesota and at the No. 1 spot in the country. But the Gators went 9-8 in its ensuing 17 contests, including dropping four consecutive games straight from March 25, 2011 to April 3, 2011. I think when we had No. 1 next to our name, there was a lot of pressure, Schwarz said. I think we play better when were the underdogs. With just 10 games left in the regular season and Florida back to its winning ways after claiming six straight victories, Walton heading into postseason play. Ive said it from Day 1: I really like our team, Walton said. Are we talented enough to win the Womens College World Series? I think yes. Are we capable of that? I think yes. But theres so many other factors that go into not only winning the next game, let alone looking that far down the road and I think we have so many things to still continue to improve on.

To illustrate my point, a hockey colloquialism called a Gordie Howe Hat Trick happens when a player scores a goal, earns an assist and gets to do regularly. Howe, a 23-time All-Star, played more than 30 years in the NHL, won four Stanley Cups and played until he was 52 years old. And this didnt happen during Ty Cobbs ragtime era, either. This was through 1980. In recent years, the level of parity in the NHL playoffs has been akin to that of March Madness. round is a fairly common occurrence.

Sudden-death overtime is also a regular affair in the playoffs, coupled with the puckering sphincters of the participating teams fans. All the tangible aspects are there for hockey to sweep a population off its feet. Just look at Canada. In the States, however, the exposure is paltry at best. The NHL is the redheaded stepchild of the four major sports. Its about as well-known in America particularly Florida as Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson, president of the Swedish Trade Union Confederation.
