House Bill 851, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott on Monday, grants in-state tuition to undocumented students who have attended a Florida high school for at least three years and plan to enroll in college within 24 months of graduation. For students like Jose Abastida, this means a $22,278 drop in yearly tuition. When Abastida visited UF in high school, he fell in love with the campus. But as an undocumented immigrant, he knew he couldnt afford the out-of-state tuition. But with this bill passing, everything fell into place, he said. It was perfect timing. Now that HB851 is law, the 22-year-old will attend UF in the Fall as a political science junior. His sister can now afford to be a full-time student, he said. Before, she was limited to one to two classes per semester. Jose Miranda, former president of the Hispanic Student Association, said this is a big deal for Florida because this state has the third largest population of undocumented immigrants, following California and Texas.

A list was allegedly obtained about a month ago by ex-manager of Gainesville2Go Jeremiah Loper after he exported the customer email list from a third-party email provider. He has his own business, said current manager of Gainesville2Go, Jackson Bodiford. We let people know in case he uses the list. Gainesville2Go and Bodiford havent noticed much of a change in business since the release of the reported email, and there is no security risk with the exported list. A handful of customers have requested their card info to be deleted, which takes 10 seconds, Bodiford said. The companys plans to alleviate any negativity is being digged into, and a few suggested promotions will be in place for the Summer semesters. However, there have been some problems with the company in the past, according to Alligator archives. On April 4, 2013, about 8,000 customers received an explicatory email from the delivery company apologizing for a venge tactic sent by a former employee who to log into the companys Facebook, email and Twitter accounts where he posted apologies. An arrest was also made for fraudulent checks being forged on Jan. 3, according to archives. Michael Tatum, a former employee, wrote $40,000 worth of fraudulent checks. Loper and owner of Gainesville2Go, Andrew Gorrelick, reviewed business records when check being dated Dec. 2, 2013. Tatums explanation was that the company was an open business and employees wrote their own paychecks from the main business account. Bodiford and the company decided to change some security measures.

Last year, the Florida Legislature allocated UF $15 million the university become a top 10 public university, an amount President Bernie Machen pledged to match with private donations. We felt we couldnt use it on facilities, Machen said during a Board of Trustees meeting Friday. From the very beginning, this has been a faculty-driven process. Last Summer, the university sought out proposals for areas of preeminence study from deans and institute directors. They received 52 wellthought-out proposals and narrowed it to 26 initiatives that would build on UFs current research as well as new trends on the horizon we cant afford to overlook. UF committed more than $18 million to the 26 initia$15 million in preeminence funding. We assumed, kind of like airline scheduling, that we would overbook, Machen said.

The justices did not comment Monday in rejecting the companies complaints. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., Philip Morris USA Inc. and Lorillard Tobacco Co. wanted the court to review cases in which smokers won large damage awards without having to prove that the companies sold a defective and dangerous product or hid the risks of smoking. Those cases all relied on a Florida court ruling that allows individual smokers or their surviving relatives to use jury findings in an earlier large class-action lawsuit, even though the verdict in that earlier case was overturned. Each plaintiff still has to show addiction to cigarettes and resulting death or illness. Have an event planned? Add it to the Alligators online

The union contended the proposed UF raised premium rates for graduate assistants as well, which includes a $409 increase per employee for the 2014-2015 school year, according to GAU records. Administrators said Gaestimated to be more than $1 raise the premiums. Graduate students said they were upset they were not consulted before the change in price. Its like, rip out the IV 29-year-old GAU chief negotiator and co-president Emily Administrators consulted said they had no data to show for it. I think it was just number py that UF raised rates withthrough data. The union also raised issues with UF administrations recent handling of disciplinary procedures in which graduate assistants have been tried by both the Dean of Students Offor the same issue. I should not be tried twice on campus, said 29-year-old sociology Ph.D. candidate Luis tiator for GAU after the meeting. It takes up a lot of time, and it costs us a lot of money. She said graduate assistants straddle the line between student and employee. We need to have those different parallel processes very said. Associate history professor and former graduate assistant Paul Ortiz spoke up for the graduate students on behalf of the United Faculty of Florida. We completely support GAUs bargaining position, he said. He said UFF would like to see the end of all graduate fees. We depend on graduate assistants as fellow intellectuals. Paying for the right to work takes away from that, he said. In the face of preeminence, the universitys goal of becoming a top 10 public research university, UF administrators should work to end the fees, Ortiz said. We want to become a top 10 university, he said. Its the right thing to do.Graduate students bargained, lost SCIENTISTS GREW PLANTS. ARIANA FIGUEROAAlligator Contributing WriterA plant experiment designed by two UF researchers returned from the International Space Station last week. After orbiting the Earth for two weeks on a NASA cargo ship, the plants have touched down safely they were returned to UF researchers. Ferl, the two researchers who designed the experiment, are studying the effect light has on root growth in zero gravity. The seeds, Arabidopsis, were grown in a petri dish, Paul said. Arabidopsis is considered the model seed for plant experiments, said Eric Schultz, a 25-year-old UF graduate student studying plant molecular and cellular biology under Paul and Ferl. There are two factors that cause root growth, light and gravity, but gravity tends to overshadow the role light plays on root growth. We want to see how much grown without gravity as a factor, Schultz said. The plants returning from outer space are going to be compared and analyzed to seeds grown on Earth on June 11. Were looking at the pattern of gene expression in novel environoutside evolutionary history. The plants will have to adapt to this new environment, which can ent atmospheres, said Karen Koch, a UF researcher and professor in plant molecular and cellular biology. Its very hard for them to maintain air pressure as on Earth, said Koch. This experiment will show how plants can adapt in space, which is vital for space exploration because plants are essential for extended exploration. When we leave Earths orbit, we will take plants with us, she said.UF experiment returns from space We want to see how has on roots grown without gravity as a factor.Eric SchultzUF graduate studentCAMPUS

In fact, it only takes one word: alarmist. Its what Republican politicians, particularly Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush, use to derail arguments about rising sea levels in Florida an undeniable reality, PBS Newshour reported. Rising sea levels around the world are connected to global warming, scientists said. National Geographic reported that the burning of fossil fuels and other human and natural activities has released enormous amounts of heat-trapping gas into the atmosphere. As a result, three factors have contributed to the increase of sea levels, thermal expansion, the melting of glaciers and global ice caps and ice loss from Greenland and Antarctica. Ice loss in areas thousands of miles away has an immediate effect on South Florida. According to PBS, This is not a future problem. Its a current problem, said Leonard Berry, director of the Florida Center for Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University and a contributing author of the National Climate Assessment, which found that sea levels have risen about 8 inches in the past century. And yet, even as Miami is poised to spend $400 million ing, Marco Rubio claimed that surface temperatures on Earth have stabilized. PolitiFact Florida was quick to debunk his statement. They ruled it Mostly False. In his original statement, he said he never denied that climate change was a reality. However, he said, How much is it changing and how much of it is directly attributable to human carbon emission? There is no consensus on that, which is why the models vary so greatly, which is why, despite 17 years of dramatic increases in carbon production by humans, surface temperatures (on) the Earth have stabilized. Scientists weighed in, and while surface temperatures have paused the increase over the past 16 or 17 years, the devil is in the details stabilized implies that the worst is over. All the experts PolitiFact interviewed, who represented NASA, the University of Miami, Rutgers and more echoed the same sentiment: The rate that the globe has been heating will pick up again, and stabilization wont occur for another 10 or 20 years. The Earths temperatures havent stabilized at all theyve simply paused. Politicians regularly cherry-pick facts to support their agenda. Thats why we have organizations like PolitiFact, after all. But when will Rubio and other Florida politicians stop studies, listen to what the real researchers are saying and start creating policy? Florida needs the kind of $400 million projects that Miami is undergoing, but it also needs a solution for the long term. Those solutions wont come as a result of denial and false senses of security. Obama and the Bergdahl dilemma The president is the ultimate victor-victim: The policies Obama proposes that should win the White House easy political victories are the situations that always lead to his defeat. For example, advocating more Americans have health insurance, proposing big government solutions and condemning our enemies on the world stage all positions that are popular with a large group of Americans have led to the mess that still is Obamacare, an expanding bureaucracy that adds the recent Veterans Affairs situation to a growing list of scandals and the indifference of our foreign foes. These are victories in the planning stages but defeats in practice. tim status. By all accounts, retrieving a captured prisoner of war from barbaric captors should have been a home run, and the administration treated it as such. The administration felt so good about what they did that they organized a presidential spike-the-football Rose Garden press conference with the soldiers parents. In order to spread the good news of this joyous occasion, the administration sent National Security Adviser Susan Rice to the Sunday show circuit. Rice said on ABCs This Week that Bergdahl served the United States with honor and distinction before he was taken in battle by the Taliban. To get him back, the administration engaged in a prisoner exchange. The terms of the exchange? Five of the, as Sen. John Mcin Guantanamo Bay for one American POW. Now this begins to complicate the feel-good narrative. Surprising to the administration, bipartisan groups of politicians began to question the terms of the transfer. And just as that debate was heating up, Sgt. Bergdahls character came under increasing scrutiny. The soldiers he fought with before his capture now question his sense of the mission and claim that he sought out the Taliban by himself, challenging Rices talking points. Add on top of that, the White House bypassed a 30-day change, and there is no way a victory can be salvaged for the White House. Here is what we have learned: First, no matter what ones political persuasion is, the cliche that the U.S. never leaves a man behind still stands. It does not matter if the sergeant in question went AWOL, criticized the war he was is an American citizen. This country promises our servicemen and women that in the event of being taken captive by the enemy, the nation will get our own back. Inevitably and rightfully, Bergdahl will be subject to a military tribunal where he will face the consequences of his actions. Second, those who seek harm upon our country now have an incentive to capture Americans and have expected zine quoted a Taliban operative in saying, Its better to kidnap one person like Bergdahl than kidnapping hundreds of useless people Now everybody will work hard to capture such an important bird. And third, it is doubtful that a prisoner exchange was the only option to reclaim Bergdahl. Sending in a group of special forces to retrieve him would not be unsound a good amount of troops on the ground. Even the apologists for the administration have to admit that President Drone-Strike might have had intelligence on the sergeants whereabouts. In sum, the president was right to get Bergdahl back to this country. However, the process in which he was returned is unfortunate. In getting our man back, we released gerous regions in the world, and the administration bucked the rule of law in the process. Michael Beato is a UF economics junior.

TUESDAY, JUNE 10, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 For those of you who are bad at remembering dates, heres a reminder: Fathers Day is this Sunday. Now, I love my dad, and Im more than happy to have a day dedicated to him. But Im not interested in having any more fathers in my life which is why birth control is so important to me because I dont want to make fathers out of any of my partners. However, birth control can be expensive and inconvenient if it requires a prescription. And despite some great side effects of hormonal birth control hello, clear skin and bigger breasts it could interfere with health issues. On the bright side, theres a contraceptive method thats free, convenient and, as far as preventing pregnancy goes, about as effective as condoms. If your high school sexual education was anything like mine, your freshman biology teacher probably told you never to just pull and pray. The good news is that your sex-ed teacher was wrong: You can have sex. You probably wont die. And the pullout method is a very real birth control option. For those who dont know what the pull-out method is, Ill explain. Also known as withdrawal, the pull-out method is when the male pulls his penis out of the vagina right before ejaculation. After that, he can come on his partners breasts, butt, face or anywhere, really, that is not her eyes, hair or sentimental childhood stuffed animal, please and thank you. According to a new study put out by the Guttmacher Institute, Onethird of women at risk of unintended pregnancy used withdrawal as a contraceptive method within the past 30 days. The study focused on women and found that college-age women, those ages 18 to 24, are actually the most likely to use withdrawal. Women rely less on pulling out as they get older. This makes sense. From what Ive seen in my own life and in my friends lives, the pull-out method is used mostly as a last resort. I dont see most 30 year olds getting too drunk from Margaa condom. But thats what makes the pull-out method so great. All out of condoms? Forget to take your birth control pill? Just pull and pray. Its reassuring to know that when you do that, the rate of pregnancy prevention is pretty high. Typical use of the pull-out method has a failure rate of 18 percent, which is about the same as the condom failure rate of 17 percent, according to the Guttmacher study. Perfect use of pulling out and condoms results in a 4 percent and 2 percent failure rate, respectively. The big drawback to the pull-out method is that it doesnt protect against sexually transmitted diseases. As such, I recommend using it only if you and your partner trust each other, have gotten tested and know each others sexual history. Using a condom, and maybe, a backup form of birth control, is still a good idea when youre hooking up with that Tinder match whose last name you dont even know. Its also important that the guy can control himself when using this method. Its a bad idea to rely on pulling out if you usually ejaculate prematurely. The gentleman also needs to stay mindful during sex. Its easy to get lost in how good things feel, but you need to pay attention enough to actually know when to pull out. I still encourage you to explore other birth control options. Part of having responsible sex is taking ownership of your sexual health. The pull-out method is a great backup, but consistent contraceptive use is the safest option. So make sure to protect yourself against unwanted pregnancy, whether that means pulling out or using another form of birth control. And send your dad a Fathers Day card. Hell thank you on both accounts. Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior. Her columns appear on Tuesdays. Pull and pray: Lets playColumn Robyn On May 29, the Gainesville chapter of the National Womens Liberation wrote an aggressive opposition to Florida HB1047/SB918, regarding the termination of pregnancies. In the article, the chapter claimed that the bill reduced women to walking incubators, among other outrageous assertions. As a woman, this article was disturbing to me, not because I felt my rights to abortion were being compromised, but because their claims of the bills purpose and effect were completely false. Pregnancy can be terminated, and there is nothing vague about the bills language: A woman may second trimester of her pregnancy. When the third trimester arrives, however, the bill inserts a cautious protocol for doctors to assert whether the fetus could live outside the womb. If so, the planned abortion is logically and humanely put into question. An abortion in the third trimester is still an option if two physicians agree that the termination is necessary to save the life or preserve the health of the pregnant woman. What the bill does not do is allow for a reckless termination of a baby that is alive and capable of living outside of the womb because the mother has whimsically decided in the third trimester that she doesnt want to have it. The NWL has also argued that the bill will erode womens rights even further with future changes in medical technology. This is an unfair assumption to make. The viability of a baby is outside the womb under standard medical procedure. This means that while some babies have the potential to survive in the second trimester with extra medical help, an abortion may still be performed. This is not good enough for the NWL. They are time during a pregnancy using the defense of an abortion being the womans decision at all costs. This is wrong. The Florida Legislature is not perfect. However, this is a bill that has passed with bipartisan support, and two of the House bill sponsors are doctors themselves. The Senate version was even pushed through by two women. The main purpose of this bill is to provide a reasonable second look when determining the fate of a fetus. An organization like the National Womens Liberation would have better luck if it knew the facts about the ideas it is protesting against. Stop disguising third trimester abortions as a womans right to medical care. When another human life is at stake, a humane approach will and should rightfully be taken.

A few skinheads showed up to this rally, as two of their peers were being arraigned for battery charges after an April beating of a local black man. One of them said there was a need for an all-white nation because Americans need somewhere to call home, to which an anti-racism rallier called, You aint American. Youre scum. June 8, 1993 Students might be able to get cash, buy food and clothes, have long-distance phone sex or go broke buying the latest infomercial wonder products but when it comes to paying tuition, they better bring cash. UF was considering not accepting VISA or MasterCard for tuition payments. At the time, credit cards were allowed, provided an additional 2 percent fee. However, the credit card companies themselves had rules prohibiting adding any such surcharges. The payments accounted for about 12 percent of $80 million of tuition collected. June 12, 2001 A judge shot down pleas from two Florida groups to declare a ban on releasing autopsy photos to the public unconstitutional. The issue became relevant after the Orlando Sentinel requested to see the photos of recently passed NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt.

The renovations include replacing the windows, doors, locks the bathrooms and loungsprinkler, alarm system and electrical systems. Blansett said that the renovation will not affect students or faculty at UF because it is necessary for building upkeep. Renovations and repairs to residence facilities are ongoing and planned many years in advance, she said. Blansett said the contractors are chosen through a competitive bidding process. This summers contractors are Charles Perry Partners Inc., BBI Construction Management Inc. and Oelrich Construction Inc., which are all local contractors.
