Angelou spoke frankly about her past and her passion for civil and human rights. She ended by reading honest and uncensored poetry, Aggarwal said.

only Accent speakers she has seen receive roaring applause and a standing ovation. She was so powerful for such a tiny person, she said. Justin Dunnavant, a 25-year-old UF anthropology graduate student, said he has read multiple letters written by Angelou. She often wrote by herself in a hotel room, he said, because she believed that unique ideas could only come to those who spent time alone. She could do things gracefully and artistically with paper and pen, Dunnavant said. UF history professor Paul Ortiz said it is hard to sum up the life of a person who did so much good. Angelou worked with many promicluding Malcolm X, Richard Wright and James Baldwin, he said. She was like their interpreter. She was one of the last people who could tell you what they were thinking, he said. She was able to get at the personal psyche of African-American society. Ortiz said he often uses her memoirs and interviews in his classroom. Her powerful work pushes people beyond their comfort zones, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 LOCAL STEVEN KATONA Alligator Staff Writer skatona@alligator.orgThe City of Gainesvilles communications entered the 21st century last week with a new online forum called engageGNV. Tacked on to cityofganesville. org, this forum will allow citizens to comment on selected topics the city posts for discussion and vote on options for city projects. These projects are given a time limit for discussion, and the results are compiled and sent to the City Commission. EngageGNV is part two of Gainesvilles Gov. 2.0 Initiative, which seeks to improve access on the citys data and communication. The city signed a 1-year, $9,000 contract with Peak Democracy, a public engagement company, to provide this forum service, said Lila Stewart, the senior strategic planner for the City of Gainesville. Launched May 21, engageGNV has one topic up for discussion, and more than 90 people have submitted their opinions to the website the public discourse. The current topic up for discussion is the renovation of Southeast Fourth Street from Depot Avenue to Southeast Williston Road, which is scheduled to take place over summer of 2015. Citizens can voice their opinions, ranging from right-of-way width to how much the city should spend for the project, until June 18. The comments will then be shared by staff members at the June 19 City Commission meeting. Gainesville Public Works stormwater engineer Andrew Roberts, who suggested the .7-mile project be a part of the engageGNV launch, said the forum will be a great way for him to collect citizen input. Its only been up for a week or so, and weve already got input, said Roberts, who is heading the rebuilding project. Internet forums are a little easier for people to attend. Online town hall provides new outlet for citizen comment MAYA, from page 1Students liked her poetry ODome weight room will reopenThe bill, SB 2014 10-37, was approved unanimously during Tuesday nights senate meeting. The legislation explained how UFs Student Senate divided the $18,735,300 raised from the student A & S Fee. Other major changes include an about $80,000 increase in Student Government staff salaries. Bean attributes this to minimum wage increases, state-mandated 3-percent salary increases and the creation of a new professional marketing position to be shared by SG and student activities and involvement. The position has been in the works for years, he said. Now we have a formal position to get the word out about these services that are sometimes underused, Bean said. The academic budget for groups dipped alwas spending their budget, he said. Its just like what were doing with Accent, Bean said. They werent using all their money, they were hovering right around that $450,000 rate, so we just bumped them down to that. Accent lost about $46,000, only about half as much as the Reitz Equipment Fee, which went from $96,400 to zero. These cuts, Bean said, went toward staving off more drastic measures, like the earlier committee consideration to cut gym hours. Instead, SG asked that the Reitz reuse and repair older equipment. Sen. Anthony Sorrentino spoke in favor of the bill, especially the increases for student salaries on campus. The more that we can employ students, the better, he said. Thats something I like to see in the midst of this construction. BUDGET, from page 1

The New York Times and the American Civil Liberties Union has been pressuring the administration for years to disclose the memo to the public, as per the Freedom of Information Act. Though the Obama administration claimed they had complied with a federal appeals court ordering the disclosure of portions of the memo, The New York Times reported yesterday that the administration is appealing to censor additional parts of the memo. This tug-of-war between the press and the president is keeping the media from performing its watchdog function.

Todays question: Do you prefer Canvas over Sakai? Prepare for a worst-case climate scenario When a meteorologist warns Floridians of an impending hurricane and the catastrophic damage that could result from such a storm, most people heed the warnings and batten down the hatches. Recently, scientists discovered that a massive ice sheet in Antarctica melted past the point of return, and in the coming decades could seriously threaten coastal cities, especially those in Florida. Many will scream that its a conspiracy perpetuated by the left in order to force more government into our lives. Others will shrug at the news as they sip a cool drink in Miami Beach, enjoying the waves crashing into shore. Never of Miami, or the point-blank warnings that cities such as Miami will cease to exist if the oceans rise as expected. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio doubts the existence of global warming, claiming that temperatures on earth have stabilized. The popular political fact-checking group PolitiFact rated Rubios claim mostly false, yet that ranking will probably do little to change Rubios rhetoric. As a son of south Florida, how could a man vying for the White House Sure, you could write off that previous sentence as leftist hyperbole and theres no doubt many of you will but when 97 percent of scientists agree that the world is changing for the worse, perhaps we should not cry conspiracy so soon. Maybe our lack of belief in global warming has something to do with the enormous challenge it is to actually prevent the catastrophic consequences we face. The small changes are starting with severe droughts devastating the western U.S., leading to sizable increases in food prices and the terrifying report that some in Texas are resorting to drinking from the toilet, because water is so scarce. Rubio and others can ignore or placate their base in order to win an election, but what kind of country does land turn to desert, or one that admits we have a serious The U.S. used to be a country that set goals and took action. We built the Panama Canal, defeated fascism in Europe, won the Cold War and remain the only nation on Earth that put men on the moon. Hell, now we cant even get into space without hitching a ride from our former Cold War adversaries, the Russians. Its time we stopped screwing around, kicking dirt, waiting for the next generation to take action, and its well past time for politicians our supposed leaders to ignore the warnings, unless Marco Rubio wants to visit his grandchildren in this centurys Lost City of Atlantis: Miami Beach. Defeating climate change is not something that the government can accomplish on its own. Instead, it takes all of us admitting that theres a problem and that we need to do something before its too late. Cutting back on our energy consumption, driving less and pressuring our leaders to act are just some of the ways we can try to prevent a cataclysmic shift on earth. If we listen to the meteorologist a scientist before a hurricane hits, lets listen to the scientists about climate change. It just might save our lives and the lives of future generations, along with humanity. Sometimes the meteorologists are wrong about the hurricanes, and we boarded up our houses and evacuated for nothing, but we are better to be prepared than dead. Best case, the scientists are wrong, and at least well be living on a cleaner planet that understands the symbiotic relationship we have with the Earth and all the living things gracing our big. blue marble in space. Worst case, well be prepared for whatever comes our way. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Our legislature is attacking womens rights in Florida. House Bill 1047/Senate Bill 918, which vaguely claims to revise circumstances under which a pregnancy in the third trimester may be terminated, permits doctors to place the potential life of a fetus above the life of a woman. This bill reduces women to walking incubators and lays bare the Florida Legislatures belief that a womans true value is in her ability to birth and raise children. With HB 1047/ SB 918, the legislature asserts license to control womens reproductive decisions about when or if we have a child. Gov. Rick Scott has a choice: He can either side with the legislators who strip women of control over our bodies, or he can stand with the powerful constituency of women voters in Florida and veto the bill. The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear that even when states prohibit third-trimester abortions, there must be an exception when a womans life or health is in danger. Floridas new law prohibits doctors from considering whether the mental health and well-being of a woman seeking such an abortion is in danger. The law also permits doctors to prioritize the health of the fetus over that of the pregnant mother. This bill is not about protecting anyone. Only the woman can truly know her situation or circumstances; therefore, the decision needs to be made by the woman and her medical provider without restrictions. The legislature is attempting to force labor on women but is not passing laws that would support the mother and child once he or she is born. If the legislature is really concerned about Floridas children, it should focus on providing access to health care, public education and creating options for affordable child care. Instead they choose to focus on taking away a womans right to selfdetermination. This bill will increase the already high barrier to a woman accessing a third-trimester abortion by prohibiting abortions once a fetus is viable when it can survive outside of a womans body. Focusing on the potential fetus rather than the woman who carries it is anti-woman. Narrowing the window of time a woman can seek an abortion is just another move to weaken Roe v. Wade. This focus creates a questionable time period and will erode womens rights even further with future changes in medical technology. We will not stand by silently and allow yet another obstacle to be placed between women and our right to medical care. We demand self-determination for all women and girls, which includes the ability to terminate a pregnancy that we dont want. If Scott ignores Florida women now and does not veto this bill, he will face the anger of women across the state and at the ballot box as he attempts re-election. Scott needs to hear from you. Call and email him to demand he vetoes HB 1047/ SB 918. To womensliberation.org or 352-575-0495. National Womens Liberation, Gainesville chapter steering committee: Betty Campbell, Brooke EliazarMacke, Regan Garner, Meggan Jordan, Meredith Kite, Stephanie Seguin and Kendra Vincent.Florida women seek governors vetoGuest column U added Totes Ridictionary to the stack of funny books in its stores. This book offers a scope of the modern English language and where it seems to be heading. While the book intended to be humorous, it is shockingly accurate. This shortening of words derives from the increasing use of social media and character limits such as the well-noted 140 character limit of Twitter. What also seems to be changing the landscape of the English language is the way we speak. When abbreviated words their way into popular media such as Twitter, books and television shows their usage becomes widespread. If enough people use a word in a particular way and it becomes widespread, it will ary, said Fiona MacPherson, the senior Oxford English Dictionary editor. Theres no doubt that people will disagree with current trends becoming more mainstream, but because of the globalization of technology and social trends, new words will come into play as the public I believe were the front-runners of a new wave of words that will become the latest addition to the English language. Its remarkable how something that seems small can turn into a movement requiring the acceptance of a new word or phrase. English is just another example of how quickly and viral what people say and feel can be globalized and reach audiences across the world. Gemrick Curtom is a writer for the Daily Cougar.

Connor Ward, a 20-year-old UF computer science junior, praised the positive vibes felt among the attendees. Its a chance to dress up ridiculously, meet new people and bond with old friends in ways we never could in the real world, he said. Sharing the love with new and old friends is easy at festivals like Sunset thanks to kandi. Kandi are the colorful wristbands decorated with praises designed to be traded among fellow festival-goers. Trading kandi with someone really is a meaningful experience, he said. It makes it so easy to walk up to random people and instantly have a connection.

The start of the second day was unfortunately delayed due to a severe thunderstorm. Despite the brief bout of wind and rain, festivalgoers emerged from their shelters at the Raymond James Stadium to virtually no damages. Festival organizers shaved some time from all performers sets in order to give all of the artists proper sets. While the festival largely succeeded in achieving its lofty ambitions, some areas could still use improvement. There were only four water stations across the grounds and placed stage.

So those were my expectations heading into the theater. They werent met. X-Men: Days of Future Past is a good movie, but not a great one. I wasnt reminded of Batman. In fact, I would say the most apt movie comparison would be 2012s The Avengers. off their powers and developed as characters or displayed very little intelligence. with this one. more obscure comic mutants making an appearance. Wolverine goes back in time in order to motivate the younger versions of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) to change the course of events in history. Hugh Jackmans Wolverine is transported through the power of the mutant Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page). Apparently hes the only one who can make the journey to the past due to his healing powers, which will let him heal his mind after the long journey through time. Thus comes the excuse to make Hugh How convenient! Of course, the real reason is that the X-Men franchise has spent Jackman up as the main protagonist. According to the law of the superhero movie he must be the star of this one as well. Days of Future Past is based on a 1980s comic arc where Kitty Pryde, from a dystopian future where mutants are hunted and killed, transfers her consciousness back to her 1970s body to change an event that would trigger the mass fear of mutants. Page has proven herself to be a sympathetic and engaging lead (Inception, been original, showing off a complex female superhero at a time when the genre is dominated by white, male heroes. It would be fresh, unique and probably powerful. I wish that were the movie that had been made.New X-Men a formulaic fallback onto action movie clichsUF students show up and turn up movies DJ Deorro

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 11 Julian Pinilla / Alligator StaffFeeling the Rhythm Marshal Patrick, 36, and his band Rosewater perform at Looseys downtown on Saturday for the Follow The Sun Music Festival. The Florida-focused festival stopped here en route to Cedar Key. PATRICK GLYNNAvenue WriterMac Miller, also known as Easy Mac with the Cheesy Raps, capitalized in his teenage years as a party rapper with chorus-driven songs of low lyrical depth like Nikes on my Feet and Donald Trump. On his latest free-for-download effort, Faces, released on Mothers Day, Miller continued his development as a musician and self-conscious rapper, highlighted by mature production and lyrical content, where he delves more into his struggle with drug addiction, personal relationships and depression. The 24-track mixtape is like an introduction to the new chapter in Millers career, one that has him producing his own music with a wide range of sounds, from ambient jazz samples (Here We Go, Rain) to mellow, bass-heavy drums (Polo Jeans, Diablo) to church organ heavy beats (What Do You Do, New Faces). Through all the faces Miller shows of himself, from boasting how cool it is to hang out with him (Therapy) to revealing his heavy dependence on drugs and his depression (Rain, New Faces), Miller shows hes in the music industry to make the music he wants and feels, a pleasure an independent artist like Miller has. Faces continues the growth of his second studio album, Watching Movies With the Sound Off, where he talked about depression and his stance in the music industry as an independent artist. He also started producing his own music, which helped him stray from the party-rap sound he rose to prominence with. Faces is a long project to endure at more than an hour-and-aface of the 22-year-old you will enjoy looking at.Mac Millers New Faces

One Gainesville retail store is getting a little crabby, read the full story on page 17. JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Theyre back. For the sixth time in coach Tim Waltons tenure, the Gators are heading to the Womens College World Series. And with play starting today at noon against Baylor, Walton has no doubt Florida can end up on top in Oklahoma City. Weve established that culture that we want to end our season at the College World Series, the ninth-year coach said. This team is no different than any other.In order to reach Oklahoma City, Florida had to take out a hot-hitting Washington team in the Super Regionals. And coming off a Seattle regional where they blanked their three opponents by a combined score of 26-0, the Huskies were not going I had a gut feeling this was going to go to a three-game series just by the nature of the stuff that I saw Florida took an easy 9-0 win on Saturday, needing just one win against Washington on Sunday to punch its ticket to Oklahoma City. After Washington took the 4-3 win in Game 2, the tiebreaker that immediately followed experienced weather delays nearly six hours worth. But after the rain cleared on two different occasions, the Gators were victorious, pulling out an 8-0 victory I thought they really couldve easily hung their heads after playting beat, Walton said. At the end of the day I believe we left no doubt that we deserve to move on to the College World Series. the winner-take-all match against Washington, Kelsey Stewart made a hit that symbolized her role in Floridas offense. Facing a 1-1 count with two outs in the bottom of the fourth, the sophomore struck a three-run home 4-0 lead right after a crack of lightning lit up the sky. But Stewart didnt see the bolt over Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. She didnt need to. I heard everybody with their oohs and ahhs, she said. Even without seeing the lightning crack, Stewarts seventh home run lit up Floridas offense just like she has done all season. The Wichita, Kan., native leads UF in batting average (.435), doubles (14), triples (6), stolen bases (34) and multi-hit games (29) good enough And after making it to the Super Regional for the second time in her career, Stewart knew Florida wasnt going to lie down. Our hype number was super high at that point, Stewart said. I knew there was no losing for my team. I knew my senior pitcher was going to go out there and wasnt going to let us lose, and I knew all of the girls were still going to be up eight teams competing in Division I softball, the Gators look to continue their success. For Florida, that success starts in the pitching circle. And with the circle comes ace Hannah Rogers. The senior has three completegame shutouts in her career including two last weekend against Washington to tie her with Stephanie Brombacher for the second-most in program history with games still to play. She is Floridas second-team nominations (2011 and 2012) and one third-team nod (2014). But her performance in the deciding game against Washington is one that Walton will never forget. I could see it in her eyes when she was throwing the ball, Walton said. I saw something in Hannah (on Sunday) that I hadnt seen in four years. delays, the waiting and the pressure Rogers struck out six batters, allowing just one hit and three walks. She needed just 83 pitches to get the win. I think its more just of a mental game, Rogers said. Thats just when you really have to keep your focus and make sure that youre not letting anything get in the way of you whenever you do have a long delay like that. And even with all shes accomplished, Rogers has one more goal Alligator File PhotoFlorida coach Tim Waltons softball team opens play in the Womens College World Series today.

But hanging on a mannequin in a display window is an orange shirt with a blue crab on it that has the No. 5 right in the middle, inviting you to visit Jameis famous crab shack emporium. Its poking fun at Florida States two-sport athlete Jameis Winston, and its a hot seller. shirt reads on the back, taking a sardonic play at the FSU atha Tallahassee Publix. 20-year-old Taylor Macdonald has worked at the Oaks Mall Gator Mania for more than a year as a sales associate. She says people will come in to the store just because they see the shirt. The shirt is made by Smack Apparel, a popular clothing line that makes colorful shirts that takes shots at many of the rivalries in college sports, and isnt exclusive to just UF and its blood-feuds. Macdonald is a big Gators fan who said Winston is a good quarterback but not exactly the brightest bulb. She says Florida State fans often come in the store and actually laugh at the shirt. The shirt does bring in people because they see it and theyre oh, thats so funny, Macdonald said. I mean I think its hilarious. I actually have the shirt. the Archer Rd.

In the past weve gotten stuff for FSU, gotten stuff for Georgia, gotten stuff for Miami but even FSU fans see that one and theyre like OK, thats funny. So whether your quarterback is lifting crabs or your linebacker is barking at a police dog, there will always be humorous cannon fodder for one side to lob jokes at toward the other. It gives the rivalry a 365-day-a-year feel to it, and that can be further illustrated by what sits outside the Archer Rd.

JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Eight teams remain in the hunt for the title as the top softball team in the country. Each team took different paths to make it, but in the end, they all made it to Oklahoma City. With action beginning today, alligatorSports took a look at each opening-round matchup. Game 1: No. 5 seed Florida (5012) vs. No. 13 Seed Baylor (47-14) RPI: 1 (UF) vs. 12 (BU) Batting Average: .312 (UF) vs. .305 (BU) Team ERA: 2.02 (UF) vs. 1.55 (BU) Fielding Percentage: .978 (UF) vs. .965 (BU) Florida analysis: The Gators have come a long way since Tim Walton became head coach in 2006. They are competing in their sixth Womens College World Series in seven years, but this time around, they hope to win it all. Florida is led on offense by sophomore Kelsey Stewart and junior Lauren Haeger, while everyone whos stepped into the batters box this season has at least a .303 on base percentage. In the circle, UF has a three-headed rotation, with senior Hannah Rogers, Haeger and freshman Delanie Gourley being able to step in the starting lineup during any given game. Baylor analysis: second in the Big 12 and hosting Baylor had a tough draw in the Sugia. But the Bears made quick work of the Bulldogs, sweeping UGA on score. Baylor has one of the best pitchers in the country in Whitney Canion. A sixth-year senior, Canion has At the plate, redshirt sophomore Linsey Hays paces the Bears with mark.

The senior shortclip at the plate and is 18th in the naCalif., native has a .611 batting average with two home runs and three stolen bases. Oregon also has a valuable arm in Cheridan Hawkins. The sophothe year with 11 solo shutouts and 313 strikeouts in just 230 innings en Florida State analysis: Since batting average the second worst clip of the eight remaining teams. The Seminoles need to see more output from Atlantic Coast Conference average in the regular season. FSU also needs Lacey Walher dominance in the circle.

she wants to check off her list: hoisting the NCAA Championship trophy at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium. And if she plays anywhere close to how she did against Washington, Walton wont be concerned. She was impressive. She just one-hit one of the best hitting teams in the country, Walton said. I think thats overshadowed by the score, but she was dynamite.Rogers wasnt the only Florida player whose performance may have been overshadowed during the Super Regionals. Lauren Haeger could claim that title as well. Haeger was Floridas starting pitcher during its Game 2 loss, but she still had a solid outing. The junior right-hander surrendered six hits and gave up four runs only three of which were earned while striking out seven batters and not drawing a walk. But her contributions in that game went further than the circle. Haeger drove in two of Floridas three runs when she belted a two-run home run her team-leading 20th of the season and fourth since NCAA play began that bounced off But outside of her homer, the UF offense failed to provide Haeger any wiggle room, with the rest of the team going 1-10 at the plate with runners in scoring position and leaving seven runners on base. Lauren pitched her butt Walton said, and we didnt give her any help. Haeger is used to producing at the plate when shes also in the circle. The junior leads Florida with a .674 slugging mark this season. However, in the 23 games where she made an appearance in the circle, that number jumps to .764. When looking at just the 15 games where she pitched at least four innings, her slugging mark soars to .843. When I pitch a game, I feel like I can help myself more, Haeger said earlier in the season. Its just something that Ive always done. If you hit for yourself, you kind of feel like you can contribute both ways.The Gators are ready. After against Washington on Sunday to reach the Womens College World Series, Florida is prepared for whatever challenges will come its way in Oklahoma City. their journey. Baylor pulled off an upset to advance to its third Womens College World Series appearance, sweeping No. 4 seed Georgia by a combined 15-4 in Athens, Ga. But regardless of the opponents, regardless of the situation, the Gators are ready to play in Oklahoma City and they know they should be there. It is an expectation, Walton said. I think ultimately weve created that. THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 19 SOFTBALL, from page 16Florida faces Baylor felt he was being unfairly targeted. They then went into a separate nightclub across the street, where Hernandez pointed out to his friend a of the individuals as the person that had spilled a drink on him earlier. Haggan said surveillance footage proves this claim as false, as de Abreu and his group did not leave the Cure Lounge until after 2 a.m. Shortly after that exchange, Hernandez and his friend left to go back to the parking garage where his SUV and coincidentally de Abreus BMW were both parked. Hernandez and his friend left the garage, drove around the area, then parked on a nearby street. Once parked, Hernandez allegedly popped the hood and retrieved a .38 caliber revolver he had stashed away. At approximately 2:10 a.m., de Abreu and the four people accompanying him left the Cure Lounge. At 2:17 a.m., de Abreu, Furtado and a third person walked to the BMW. Hernandezs SUV drove past the parking garage, slowing down as they passed the group. Three minutes later, Hernandezs SUV passed by again as the other two people with de Abreu waited outside the parking garage to be picked up. As the BMW left the garage, Hernandez allegedly said there they go and followed it. He allegedly stopped at a red light, then ran through it to catch up with the BMW. When Hernandez caught up, Haggan alleges that Hernandez leaned out of his drivers side window, said yo, whats up now? followed by a racial slur, and then Haggan said a witness claimed they heard a clicking the fact that Hernandez kept pulling the trigger after the gun was empty. De Abreu suffered a fatal chest wound, Furtado, a fatal head wound and both died at the scene. A passenger traveling in the middle seat in the back of the car suffered an arm wound but survived. Hernandez and his friend then drove to Hartford, Conn., where Hernandez searched online for news about the shooting. They arrived there at 5 a.m. and on the way, Hernandez allegedly told his friend, I think I got one in the head and one in the chest. He then phoned his cousin Tonya Singleton who drove up from Hernandezs hometown of Bristol, Conn. She came and switched her car for the SUV they were initially driving in. The SUV was stored in Singletons garage in Bristol until it was found by police while searching the home on June 26, 2013. Authorities were investigating the June 16, 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd another case Hernandez is connected to. The alleged murder weapon was found on June 21, 2013 after inventory was taken of the items in a vehicle involved in a collision that was driven by a Bristol resident with ties to Hernandez. Hernandez will next appear in court in relation to the de Abreu-Furtado double-murder on June 24. HERNANDEZ, from page 16womens team to earning more I dont really care about rankings. Its cool to see where you are at that time, but when it comes to championships or certain meets, its who decides to perform that day, Brewer said. Preaching words that come from coach Mike Holloways state of mind, Brewer has incorporated what her mentor has instilled on the entire team. Brewer said when Holloway gives his team a pep-talk about rankings not meaning anything, he helps the athletes bring the pressure down and gets everyone to not worry about the ranks.

Justin Dunnavant, a 25-year-old UF anthropology graduate student, said he has read multiple letters written by Angelou. She often wrote by herself in a hotel room, he said, because she believed that unique ideas could only come to those who spent time alone. She could do things gracefully and artistically with paper and pen, Dunnavant said. UF history professor Paul Ortiz said it is hard to sum up the life of a person who did so much good. Angelou worked with many promicluding Malcolm X, Richard Wright and James Baldwin, he said. She was like their interpreter. She was one of the last people who could tell you what they were thinking, he said. She was able to get at the personal psyche of African-American society. Ortiz said he often uses her memoirs and interviews in his classroom. Her powerful work pushes people beyond their comfort zones, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 LOCAL STEVEN KATONA Alligator Staff Writer skatona@alligator.orgThe City of Gainesvilles communications entered the 21st century last week with a new online forum called engageGNV. Tacked on to cityofganesville. org, this forum will allow citizens to comment on selected topics the city posts for discussion and vote on options for city projects. These projects are given a time limit for discussion, and the results are compiled and sent to the City Commission. EngageGNV is part two of Gainesvilles Gov. 2.0 Initiative, which seeks to improve access on the citys data and communication. The city signed a 1-year, $9,000 contract with Peak Democracy, a public engagement company, to provide this forum service, said Lila Stewart, the senior strategic planner for the City of Gainesville. Launched May 21, engageGNV has one topic up for discussion, and more than 90 people have submitted their opinions to the website the public discourse. The current topic up for discussion is the renovation of Southeast Fourth Street from Depot Avenue to Southeast Williston Road, which is scheduled to take place over summer of 2015. Citizens can voice their opinions, ranging from right-of-way width to how much the city should spend for the project, until June 18. The comments will then be shared by staff members at the June 19 City Commission meeting. Gainesville Public Works stormwater engineer Andrew Roberts, who suggested the .7-mile project be a part of the engageGNV launch, said the forum will be a great way for him to collect citizen input. Its only been up for a week or so, and weve already got input, said Roberts, who is heading the rebuilding project. Internet forums are a little easier for people to attend.

The legislation explained how UFs Student Senate divided the $18,735,300 raised from the student A & S Fee. Other major changes include an about $80,000 increase in Student Government staff salaries. Bean attributes this to minimum wage increases, state-mandated 3-percent salary increases and the creation of a new professional marketing position to be shared by SG and student activities and involvement. The position has been in the works for years, he said. Now we have a formal position to get the word out about these services that are sometimes underused, Bean said. The academic budget for groups dipped alwas spending their budget, he said. Its just like what were doing with Accent, Bean said. They werent using all their money, they were hovering right around that $450,000 rate, so we just bumped them down to that. Accent lost about $46,000, only about half as much as the Reitz Equipment Fee, which went from $96,400 to zero. These cuts, Bean said, went toward staving off more drastic measures, like the earlier committee consideration to cut gym hours. Instead, SG asked that the Reitz reuse and repair older equipment. Sen. Anthony Sorrentino spoke in favor of the bill, especially the increases for student salaries on campus. The more that we can employ students, the better, he said. Thats something I like to see in the midst of this construction. BUDGET, from page 1

Though the Obama administration claimed they had complied with a federal appeals court ordering the disclosure of portions of the memo, The New York Times reported yesterday that the administration is appealing to censor additional parts of the memo.

Prepare for a worst-case climate scenario When a meteorologist warns Floridians of an impending hurricane and the catastrophic damage that could result from such a storm, most people heed the warnings and batten down the hatches. Recently, scientists discovered that a massive ice sheet in Antarctica melted past the point of return, and in the coming decades could seriously threaten coastal cities, especially those in Florida. Many will scream that its a conspiracy perpetuated by the left in order to force more government into our lives. Others will shrug at the news as they sip a cool drink in Miami Beach, enjoying the waves crashing into shore. Never of Miami, or the point-blank warnings that cities such as Miami will cease to exist if the oceans rise as expected. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio doubts the existence of global warming, claiming that temperatures on earth have stabilized. The popular political fact-checking group PolitiFact rated Rubios claim mostly false, yet that ranking will probably do little to change Rubios rhetoric. As a son of south Florida, how could a man vying for the White House Sure, you could write off that previous sentence as leftist hyperbole and theres no doubt many of you will but when 97 percent of scientists agree that the world is changing for the worse, perhaps we should not cry conspiracy so soon. Maybe our lack of belief in global warming has something to do with the enormous challenge it is to actually prevent the catastrophic consequences we face. The small changes are starting with severe droughts devastating the western U.S., leading to sizable increases in food prices and the terrifying report that some in Texas are resorting to drinking from the toilet, because water is so scarce. Rubio and others can ignore or placate their base in order to win an election, but what kind of country does land turn to desert, or one that admits we have a serious The U.S. used to be a country that set goals and took action. We built the Panama Canal, defeated fascism in Europe, won the Cold War and remain the only nation on Earth that put men on the moon. Hell, now we cant even get into space without hitching a ride from our former Cold War adversaries, the Russians. Its time we stopped screwing around, kicking dirt, waiting for the next generation to take action, and its well past time for politicians our supposed leaders to ignore the warnings, unless Marco Rubio wants to visit his grandchildren in this centurys Lost City of Atlantis: Miami Beach. Defeating climate change is not something that the government can accomplish on its own. Instead, it takes all of us admitting that theres a problem and that we need to do something before its too late. Cutting back on our energy consumption, driving less and pressuring our leaders to act are just some of the ways we can try to prevent a cataclysmic shift on earth. If we listen to the meteorologist a scientist before a hurricane hits, lets listen to the scientists about climate change. It just might save our lives and the lives of future generations, along with humanity. Sometimes the meteorologists are wrong about the hurricanes, and we boarded up our houses and evacuated for nothing, but we are better to be prepared than dead. Best case, the scientists are wrong, and at least well be living on a cleaner planet that understands the symbiotic relationship we have with the Earth and all the living things gracing our big. blue marble in space. Worst case, well be prepared for whatever comes our way. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Our legislature is attacking womens rights in Florida. House Bill 1047/Senate Bill 918, which vaguely claims to revise circumstances under which a pregnancy in the third trimester may be terminated, permits doctors to place the potential life of a fetus above the life of a woman. This bill reduces women to walking incubators and lays bare the Florida Legislatures belief that a womans true value is in her ability to birth and raise children. With HB 1047/ SB 918, the legislature asserts license to control womens reproductive decisions about when or if we have a child. Gov. Rick Scott has a choice: He can either side with the legislators who strip women of control over our bodies, or he can stand with the powerful constituency of women voters in Florida and veto the bill. The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear that even when states prohibit third-trimester abortions, there must be an exception when a womans life or health is in danger. Floridas new law prohibits doctors from considering whether the mental health and well-being of a woman seeking such an abortion is in danger. The law also permits doctors to prioritize the health of the fetus over that of the pregnant mother. This bill is not about protecting anyone. Only the woman can truly know her situation or circumstances; therefore, the decision needs to be made by the woman and her medical provider without restrictions. The legislature is attempting to force labor on women but is not passing laws that would support the mother and child once he or she is born. If the legislature is really concerned about Floridas children, it should focus on providing access to health care, public education and creating options for affordable child care. Instead they choose to focus on taking away a womans right to selfdetermination. This bill will increase the already high barrier to a woman accessing a third-trimester abortion by prohibiting abortions once a fetus is viable when it can survive outside of a womans body. Focusing on the potential fetus rather than the woman who carries it is anti-woman. Narrowing the window of time a woman can seek an abortion is just another move to weaken Roe v. Wade. This focus creates a questionable time period and will erode womens rights even further with future changes in medical technology. We will not stand by silently and allow yet another obstacle to be placed between women and our right to medical care. We demand self-determination for all women and girls, which includes the ability to terminate a pregnancy that we dont want. If Scott ignores Florida women now and does not veto this bill, he will face the anger of women across the state and at the ballot box as he attempts re-election. Scott needs to hear from you. Call and email him to demand he vetoes HB 1047/ SB 918. To womensliberation.org or 352-575-0495.

This book offers a scope of the modern English language and where it seems to be heading. While the book intended to be humorous, it is shockingly accurate. This shortening of words derives from the increasing use of social media and character limits such as the well-noted 140 character limit of Twitter. What also seems to be changing the landscape of the English language is the way we speak. When abbreviated words their way into popular media such as Twitter, books and television shows their usage becomes widespread. If enough people use a word in a particular way and it becomes widespread, it will ary, said Fiona MacPherson, the senior Oxford English Dictionary editor. Theres no doubt that people will disagree with current trends becoming more mainstream, but because of the globalization of technology and social trends, new words will come into play as the public I believe were the front-runners of a new wave of words that will become the latest addition to the English language. Its remarkable how something that seems small can turn into a movement requiring the acceptance of a new word or phrase. English is just another example of how quickly and viral what people say and feel can be globalized and reach audiences across the world. Gemrick Curtom is a writer for the Daily Cougar.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 11 Julian Pinilla / Alligator StaffFeeling the Rhythm Marshal Patrick, 36, and his band Rosewater perform at Looseys downtown on Saturday for the Follow The Sun Music Festival. The Florida-focused festival stopped here en route to Cedar Key. PATRICK GLYNNAvenue WriterMac Miller, also known as Easy Mac with the Cheesy Raps, capitalized in his teenage years as a party rapper with chorus-driven songs of low lyrical depth like Nikes on my Feet and Donald Trump. On his latest free-for-download effort, Faces, released on Mothers Day, Miller continued his development as a musician and self-conscious rapper, highlighted by mature production and lyrical content, where he delves more into his struggle with drug addiction, personal relationships and depression. The 24-track mixtape is like an introduction to the new chapter in Millers career, one that has him producing his own music with a wide range of sounds, from ambient jazz samples (Here We Go, Rain) to mellow, bass-heavy drums (Polo Jeans, Diablo) to church organ heavy beats (What Do You Do, New Faces). Through all the faces Miller shows of himself, from boasting how cool it is to hang out with him (Therapy) to revealing his heavy dependence on drugs and his depression (Rain, New Faces), Miller shows hes in the music industry to make the music he wants and feels, a pleasure an independent artist like Miller has. Faces continues the growth of his second studio album, Watching Movies With the Sound Off, where he talked about depression and his stance in the music industry as an independent artist. He also started producing his own music, which helped him stray from the party-rap sound he rose to prominence with. Faces is a long project to endure at more than an hour-and-aface of the 22-year-old you will enjoy looking at.Mac Millers New Faces

One Gainesville retail store is getting a little crabby, read the full story on page 17. JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Theyre back. For the sixth time in coach Tim Waltons tenure, the Gators are heading to the Womens College World Series. And with play starting today at noon against Baylor, Walton has no doubt Florida can end up on top in Oklahoma City. Weve established that culture that we want to end our season at the College World Series, the ninth-year coach said. This team is no different than any other.In order to reach Oklahoma City, Florida had to take out a hot-hitting Washington team in the Super Regionals. And coming off a Seattle regional where they blanked their three opponents by a combined score of 26-0, the Huskies were not going I had a gut feeling this was going to go to a three-game series just by the nature of the stuff that I saw Florida took an easy 9-0 win on Saturday, needing just one win against Washington on Sunday to punch its ticket to Oklahoma City. After Washington took the 4-3 win in Game 2, the tiebreaker that immediately followed experienced weather delays nearly six hours worth. But after the rain cleared on two different occasions, the Gators were victorious, pulling out an 8-0 victory I thought they really couldve easily hung their heads after playting beat, Walton said. At the end of the day I believe we left no doubt that we deserve to move on to the College World Series. the winner-take-all match against Washington, Kelsey Stewart made a hit that symbolized her role in Floridas offense. Facing a 1-1 count with two outs in the bottom of the fourth, the sophomore struck a three-run home 4-0 lead right after a crack of lightning lit up the sky. But Stewart didnt see the bolt over Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. She didnt need to. I heard everybody with their oohs and ahhs, she said. Even without seeing the lightning crack, Stewarts seventh home run lit up Floridas offense just like she has done all season. The Wichita, Kan., native leads UF in batting average (.435), doubles (14), triples (6), stolen bases (34) and multi-hit games (29) good enough And after making it to the Super Regional for the second time in her career, Stewart knew Florida wasnt going to lie down. Our hype number was super high at that point, Stewart said. I knew there was no losing for my team. I knew my senior pitcher was going to go out there and wasnt going to let us lose, and I knew all of the girls were still going to be up eight teams competing in Division I softball, the Gators look to continue their success. For Florida, that success starts in the pitching circle. And with the circle comes ace Hannah Rogers. The senior has three completegame shutouts in her career including two last weekend against Washington to tie her with Stephanie Brombacher for the second-most in program history with games still to play. She is Floridas second-team nominations (2011 and 2012) and one third-team nod (2014). But her performance in the deciding game against Washington is one that Walton will never forget. I could see it in her eyes when she was throwing the ball, Walton said. I saw something in Hannah (on Sunday) that I hadnt seen in four years. delays, the waiting and the pressure Rogers struck out six batters, allowing just one hit and three walks. She needed just 83 pitches to get the win. I think its more just of a mental game, Rogers said. Thats just when you really have to keep your focus and make sure that youre not letting anything get in the way of you whenever you do have a long delay like that. And even with all shes accomplished, Rogers has one more goal Alligator File PhotoFlorida coach Tim Waltons softball team opens play in the Womens College World Series today.

RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator Staff Writer@RagjUFAs you walk past Gator Mania in the Oaks Mall, you take in a storefront that vomits orange and blue. But hanging on a mannequin in a display window is an orange shirt with a blue crab on it that has the No. 5 right in the middle, inviting you to visit Jameis famous crab shack emporium. Its poking fun at Florida States two-sport athlete Jameis Winston, and its a hot seller. shirt reads on the back, taking a sardonic play at the FSU atha Tallahassee Publix. 20-year-old Taylor Macdonald has worked at the Oaks Mall Gator Mania for more than a year as a sales associate. She says people will come in to the store just because they see the shirt. The shirt is made by Smack Apparel, a popular clothing line that makes colorful shirts that takes shots at many of the rivalries in college sports, and isnt exclusive to just UF and its blood-feuds. Macdonald is a big Gators fan who said Winston is a good quarterback but not exactly the brightest bulb. She says Florida State fans often come in the store and actually laugh at the shirt. The shirt does bring in people because they see it and theyre oh, thats so funny, Macdonald said. I mean I think its hilarious. I actually have the shirt. the Archer Rd.

Burger says his store got the shirts two days after Winstons shoppers at how quickly Gator Mania was able to get it. come and been like I disagree with that, but thats funny, Burger said. In the past weve gotten stuff for FSU, gotten stuff for Georgia, gotten stuff for Miami but even FSU fans see that one and theyre like OK, thats funny. So whether your quarterback is lifting crabs or your linebacker is barking at a police dog, there will always be humorous cannon fodder for one side to lob jokes at toward the other. It gives the rivalry a 365-day-a-year feel to it, and that can be further illustrated by what sits outside the Archer Rd.

JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Eight teams remain in the hunt for the title as the top softball team in the country. Each team took different paths to make it, but in the end, they all made it to Oklahoma City. With action beginning today, alligatorSports took a look at each opening-round matchup. Game 1: No. 5 seed Florida (5012) vs. No. 13 Seed Baylor (47-14) RPI: 1 (UF) vs. 12 (BU) Batting Average: .312 (UF) vs. .305 (BU) Team ERA: 2.02 (UF) vs. 1.55 (BU) Fielding Percentage: .978 (UF) vs. .965 (BU) Florida analysis: The Gators have come a long way since Tim Walton became head coach in 2006. They are competing in their sixth Womens College World Series in seven years, but this time around, they hope to win it all. Florida is led on offense by sophomore Kelsey Stewart and junior Lauren Haeger, while everyone whos stepped into the batters box this season has at least a .303 on base percentage. In the circle, UF has a three-headed rotation, with senior Hannah Rogers, Haeger and freshman Delanie Gourley being able to step in the starting lineup during any given game. Baylor analysis: second in the Big 12 and hosting Baylor had a tough draw in the Sugia. But the Bears made quick work of the Bulldogs, sweeping UGA on score. Baylor has one of the best pitchers in the country in Whitney Canion. A sixth-year senior, Canion has At the plate, redshirt sophomore Linsey Hays paces the Bears with mark.

The sophothe year with 11 solo shutouts and 313 strikeouts in just 230 innings en Florida State analysis: Since batting average the second worst clip of the eight remaining teams.

she wants to check off her list: hoisting the NCAA Championship trophy at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium. And if she plays anywhere close to how she did against Washington, Walton wont be concerned. She was impressive. She just one-hit one of the best hitting teams in the country, Walton said. I think thats overshadowed by the score, but she was dynamite.Rogers wasnt the only Florida player whose performance may have been overshadowed during the Super Regionals. Lauren Haeger could claim that title as well. Haeger was Floridas starting pitcher during its Game 2 loss, but she still had a solid outing. The junior right-hander surrendered six hits and gave up four runs only three of which were earned while striking out seven batters and not drawing a walk. But her contributions in that game went further than the circle. Haeger drove in two of Floridas three runs when she belted a two-run home run her team-leading 20th of the season and fourth since NCAA play began that bounced off But outside of her homer, the UF offense failed to provide Haeger any wiggle room, with the rest of the team going 1-10 at the plate with runners in scoring position and leaving seven runners on base. Lauren pitched her butt Walton said, and we didnt give her any help. Haeger is used to producing at the plate when shes also in the circle. The junior leads Florida with a .674 slugging mark this season. However, in the 23 games where she made an appearance in the circle, that number jumps to .764. When looking at just the 15 games where she pitched at least four innings, her slugging mark soars to .843. When I pitch a game, I feel like I can help myself more, Haeger said earlier in the season. Its just something that Ive always done. If you hit for yourself, you kind of feel like you can contribute both ways.The Gators are ready. After against Washington on Sunday to reach the Womens College World Series, Florida is prepared for whatever challenges will come its way in Oklahoma City. their journey. Baylor pulled off an upset to advance to its third Womens College World Series appearance, sweeping No. 4 seed Georgia by a combined 15-4 in Athens, Ga. But regardless of the opponents, regardless of the situation, the Gators are ready to play in Oklahoma City and they know they should be there. It is an expectation, Walton said. I think ultimately weve created that. THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 19 SOFTBALL, from page 16Florida faces Baylor felt he was being unfairly targeted. They then went into a separate nightclub across the street, where Hernandez pointed out to his friend a of the individuals as the person that had spilled a drink on him earlier. Haggan said surveillance footage proves this claim as false, as de Abreu and his group did not leave the Cure Lounge until after 2 a.m. Shortly after that exchange, Hernandez and his friend left to go back to the parking garage where his SUV and coincidentally de Abreus BMW were both parked. Hernandez and his friend left the garage, drove around the area, then parked on a nearby street. Once parked, Hernandez allegedly popped the hood and retrieved a .38 caliber revolver he had stashed away. At approximately 2:10 a.m., de Abreu and the four people accompanying him left the Cure Lounge. At 2:17 a.m., de Abreu, Furtado and a third person walked to the BMW. Hernandezs SUV drove past the parking garage, slowing down as they passed the group. Three minutes later, Hernandezs SUV passed by again as the other two people with de Abreu waited outside the parking garage to be picked up. As the BMW left the garage, Hernandez allegedly said there they go and followed it. He allegedly stopped at a red light, then ran through it to catch up with the BMW. When Hernandez caught up, Haggan alleges that Hernandez leaned out of his drivers side window, said yo, whats up now? followed by a racial slur, and then Haggan said a witness claimed they heard a clicking the fact that Hernandez kept pulling the trigger after the gun was empty. De Abreu suffered a fatal chest wound, Furtado, a fatal head wound and both died at the scene. A passenger traveling in the middle seat in the back of the car suffered an arm wound but survived. Hernandez and his friend then drove to Hartford, Conn., where Hernandez searched online for news about the shooting. They arrived there at 5 a.m. and on the way, Hernandez allegedly told his friend, I think I got one in the head and one in the chest. He then phoned his cousin Tonya Singleton who drove up from Hernandezs hometown of Bristol, Conn. She came and switched her car for the SUV they were initially driving in. The SUV was stored in Singletons garage in Bristol until it was found by police while searching the home on June 26, 2013. Authorities were investigating the June 16, 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd another case Hernandez is connected to. The alleged murder weapon was found on June 21, 2013 after inventory was taken of the items in a vehicle involved in a collision that was driven by a Bristol resident with ties to Hernandez. Hernandez will next appear in court in relation to the de Abreu-Furtado double-murder on June 24. HERNANDEZ, from page 16womens team to earning more I dont really care about rankings.

Preaching words that come from coach Mike Holloways state of mind, Brewer has incorporated what her mentor has instilled on the entire team. Brewer said when Holloway gives his team a pep-talk about rankings not meaning anything, he helps the athletes bring the pressure down and gets everyone to not worry about the ranks.
