Lukas Costas, a 20-year-old UF marketing student and co-creator of the band, is excited for the band to play in Gainesville but is concerned about the state of Gainesvilles livemusic culture. Its hard to really get the word out about a show here solely because there are so many things going on here all the time, he said. But I would love to see Gainesville prove me wrong. Venue doors open at 8 p.m., and both Hours Eastly and Currentz will open the show. Advance tickets are $8 then $10 at the door, located at 210 SW Second Ave. Sidereal has shared stages with Than Jake, using instruments like ukuleles, saxophones and melodicas wind instruments played like a piano to combine different musical elements into its sound. John Wilson, 20, said hes seen the band in concert before. A lot of bands are selling out and just sound really poppy, said Wilson, a UF industrial and systems engineering junior.

Elizabeth Bonet, assistant manager of the Charlotte Russe in Ocalas Paddock Mall, said the new Gainesville store will be successful because of the number of college girls in town. We have a lot of customers over here coming from Gainesville to the Ocala location, so now they dont have to travel all the way over here, Bonet said. Bonet said women ages 13 and older shop in her store, and she said it is almost always busy. Charlotte Russe is not the only new womens apparel store opening at Oaks Mall this semester Houston-based Charming Charlie is set to open Oct. 27. The accessory retailer sells womens jewelry, sunglasses, shoes and handbags and separates items by color throughout the store. The boutique has more than 200 locations nationwide. Sara Morrison, 22, said she isnt looking forward to Charlotte Russes opening because she thinks its style is more suitable for younger girls. Morrison said shes more excited for Charming Charlie. I dont think the mall has something like this, Morrison said of Charming Charlie. UF style guru Aleksandrea Djokoto, who blogs for College Fashionista, said she wants to go to the Charlotte Russe launch party. I think its going to be successful because the Oaks Mall doesnt have a lot of options, she said. MALL, from page 1 IT WILL COST $415 MILLION. ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterUF Health is adding another hospital to its growing medical campus. The UF Health board approved funding for a new specialty hospital Wednesday that will hold neuromedicine and cardiovascular services. The $415 million construction project will be located on Archer Road just east of the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital. The cost includes equipment and a parking garage with 600 spaces. The building will have 216 beds, including 120 specialized ICU beds. The idea for a new hospital stemmed from the long-term Forward Together plan published in May 2010, which describes the alignment of clinical programs and facilities. David Guzick, senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of UF Health, said before Forward Together, services for particular conditions were distributed throughout the hospital. The main hospital was sort of a checkerboard, Guzick said. The goal was to create an environment for our patients in which the people taking care of them were really focused on their needs and have specialized expertise in that particular area. With the growing number of patients, UF Health CEO Edward Jimenez said building a new hospital was the next step. This new facility allows us to grow in a planned and organized fashion Jimenez said. One side of the building will house neuromedicine services, and the other cardiovascular. many hospitals in the country, when were done with this, that have lining facilities the way we have, Jimenez said. Guzick said without this project, the building would get older and not provide the level of care Shands strives for. Both from the standpoint of providing the best care for our patients and from the standpoint of ensuring we can do that in the future by recruiting and retaining the best faculty, it really speaks to an exciting future, Guzick said. permitting process to get the proper approval from the city and county, and it is set to begin around January 2015. The building is expected to be completed at the end of 2017 and open at the start of 2018. Guzick said the new building is in line with UF Rising because of the recruitment of preeminent faculty throughout the university. When youre talking about the healthcare component, were talking about preeminent clinical programs that become nationally recognized, Guzick said. And it is right in step with the notion with UF Rising. UF Health OKs plans for another hospital IT WILL HOLD A MEMBERSHIP MEETING AT MAUDES ON OCT. 4.

Katy Burnett, NOW president and UF political science and history senior, said the political organization focused on empowering female students is looking forward to reaching more students. Weve been getting emails from students for the past couple of months from people living on campus, the 31-year-old said. There was a need to host events there. We spent a couple of weeks putting together interesting discussions and went for it. Gainesville Area NOW will host a womens studies discussion series starting with campus safety on Oct. 8 at 4 p.m. in Ustler Hall. The organization had an on-campus presence in the 1990s, but it disappeared after most of its members graduated, she said. Interest has brought the group back, she said. We were tabling, and there was just so much interest. We knew we had to work on something quick. A membership meeting will be held at Maudes Classic Cafe on Oct. 4 at 2 p.m. The group has reached out to on-campus organizations such as the Womens Student Association, which will co-sponsor the Feminism and Women of Color event Oct. 15 at Ustler Hall at noon. Diamond Delancy, association president and public relations junior, said planning has already begun to collaborate with NOW on the discussion series. Gainesville has such a rich feminist history, the 19-year-old said. I wish there was more off-campus involvement, but Im glad were bringing it to the students. Delancy said feminist groups such as Wild Iris Books and the National Womens Liberation chapter in Gainesville also tabled at Radical Rush, hoping to provide more information to students on womens empowerment. As a UF student, youre not only invested in the UF campus, youre also invested in the Gainesville community, she said.

ARIANA FIGUEROA and COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff WritersIn the Spring of 2012, Alex Cornillie, Jesse Schmitt and Carly Wilson teamed up for the Students Party executive ticket in the Student Government elections. Cornillie, the Student Body president candidate, was a UF Cicerone. Wilson, the candidate for Student Body treasurer, was the founder of the Students Party, a party created to rival the powerhouse Unite Party. was Schmitt, a walk-on fullback for the Gators football team, who ran as the Student Body vice presidential candidate. It landed the Students Party an endorsement from Gators head football coach Will Muschamp an unprecedented endorsement. chance. 22, 2012, a total of 10,644 ballots had been cast the highest voter turnout since 1983. Both parties marched to the outside of the Reitz Unions Orange & Brew chanting party songs, energized, anxiously awaiting the results. I thought we were gonna win, Cornillie said. The Unite Party erupted. Its executive ticket of Tj Villamil and Sabine Justilien narrowly escaped defeat by 114 votes; a margin of 1.07 percent. The Students Party walked away with 19 Student Senate seats versus Unite Partys 31. It went from extreme excitement to extreme disappointment, said Ford Dwyer, then-Students Party president. The following Spring, the Unite Party folded. Instead, a new party emerged: the Swamp Party. With only 600 votes fewer than the previous years high turnout, Swamp Party candidates Christina Bonarrigo, the former Unite Party spokeswoman, and Joselyn Rivas won as Student Body president and vice president by a margin of 3,180 votes, or 31 percent. This time, Students Party suffered a more crushing defeat, only winning 13 Senate seats. Months later, in the Fall 2013 elections, Students Party would only claim two Senate seats. The decline of the Students Party was just beginning. The Swamp Party is unopposed time in recent UF history. The ideas and passion that once fueled the Students Party are gone. In fact, the party ceases to exist; it was not registered as a party for this semesters SG elections, which begin Tuesday, according to UF Supervisor of Elections Hans Rojas. That tight Spring 2012 election was the peak of the party, said Sen. Michael Christ, the sole minority party voice in the Senate. do of the Students Party, he said. Students seemed to wake up and see that one-party rule is not conducive in government. Jenna Goldman, a former Students Party president and 2013 Student Body vice presidential candidate, wanted to keep up the momentum the Students Party had gained in Spring of 2012 with the following Fall election, but it was After that election I think a lot of the people really lost faith, she said. Goldman joined Wilson to create the Students Party in Fall 2011 after both senators disagreed with how the Unite Party ran SG. We founded it because we thought that what was going on in SG wasnt in the best interest of the students, Wilson said. Now a thirdyear UF law student, Wilson is no longer active in campus politics. I stopped having the time for SG, and its disappointing that there undergraduates, but people make choices, she said. Its very disappointing to me that theres not an opposition to the majority. In the two-year span of 2012 to 2014, Students Party membership dwindled. Dwyer said the campaign had 50 active volunteers with about 30 core members in 2012. By the end of 2014, past Students Party president Daniella Saetta said only 15 members were active. election knowing that all the odds are stacked against you, she said. On top of members constantly rotating out of the party when they graduate, a losing party doesnt attract new members, Christ said. When youre not taking over SG because youre not winning, theres no real incentive for people to join a party where you have to work your tail off 24/7 to make marginal gains, he said. In two weeks, the Students Party will be a ghost in the Senate chambers, too. After a yearlong run as Murphree area senator, Christ wont be the opposing voice in the chambers anymore. Hes decided to not run for re-election. He now lives offcampus in District A. I ran to represent the Murphree area, he said. I cant really see myself representing anyone else. Hes found solace serving as the vice chairman on the Reitz Union Board of Managers, a position where he says he can effect real change. Christ said the Students Party wont be back unless someone decides to engage again. Being the last one is a sad statement to democracy.

This gathering was the largest climate demonstration in history. sue ahead of the United Nations Climate Summit. The march was endorsed by more than 1,100 organizations including nesses. The march included people of all ages, races, genders and backgrounds. Bert Garskof, an 81-year-old man who attended the march, explained, Were going to lose our planet in the next generation if things continue this way. The ability of hundreds of thousands of people to assemble together is thrilling and inspiring and cemented the green movement as a legitimate civil rights movement. The slogan attached to this march was, To change everything, we need everyone. Unfortunately, some groups chose to exclude themselves from participation in this historic event. to touch the issue of climate change with a 10-foot pole. Individual cities, companies and organizations can agree appliances. However, our local, state and federal governing climate change. The president and Senate Democrats have supported a nationwide effort to reduce carbon emissions by gradually phasing out coal power plants. Republicans in Congress, who are projected to maintain control of the House of Representatives after the November elections, have completely ignored this critical issue. Pointing out the failure of conservatives to respond meaningfully to the climate issue is not intended to diminish the broad and accommodating to all groups involved. What the march accomplished was to strengthen the resolve of Democratic lawmakers and left-leaning entities such as environmental organizations, labor unions and feminist groups. progress on the city, county or state level, where they are more likely to reduce our nations carbon footprint. Some of the most cal level have occurred in the areas of public transportation and the renovation of government buildBlasio has already put forth a plan to reduce NYCs carbon emissions by 80 percent and has called this action a moral imperative. This kind of ambitious leadership is sorely needed and long overdue. Cities can also partner with universities to help determine which local short term actions will have the greatest effects on carbon emissions. UF has already begun this effort by studying climate changes effects on Florida. Researchers throughout the southeast U.S. collaborated to identify water supply management and adaptation to rising sea levels as top priorities. Jim Jones, a UF professor in the agricultural and biological engineering department, said, This type of thing needs to be packaged for regional and local use because that is where decisions are made. The national climate movement will not move forward without serious input from conservatives on Capitol Hill. The debate on whether climate change exists is already settled. The discussion on this issue should focus on how much of a role government should have in implementing carbon restrictions. If conservatives will not engage the issue of climate change, Democrats will simply have to wait for a demographic shift in red rural areas or hope that Republicans acquiesce so a national climate agenda can progress. However, we cannot afford to wait; climate change is a problem that demands bold and immediate action. If conservatives do eventually embrace the science of climate change, they should be welcomed into the environmental movement with open arms.

On Tuesday, Greg Gutfeld, one of the hosts of Fox News Channels The Five, may have set a new standard for idiocy during a conversation about climate change. When the discussion shifted to the topic of renewable and alternative energy sources, Gutfeld had this to say: Isnt fossil fuels the ultimate renewable energy? Its renewed once. It used to be a dinosaur. Now its fuel. How is that not renewable? Now, thats a special kind of stupid.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 LOCAL CARLYNN CROSBYAlligator Contributing WriterA local magazine staff is reaching out to readers after an 86-percent budget cut last month, jeopardized its future. The Fine Print, a student-run social advocacy publication based in Gainesville, is struggling to stay in print after its largest benefactor, Generation Progress, drastically cut the $5,000 grant it annually provides the magazine to $700. I wake up to this email that says your grant results are in, and it starts with an apology, said Samantha Schuyler, an editor at The Fine Print. And I was like, This isnt good. that supports student activists and journalists, made the $4,300 reduction about a week before The Fine Prints staff planned on starting the newest issue, each of which typically costs about $1,100. With what they were giving us, we wouldnt have been able to print one issue, Schuyler said. Funds were reduced due to budget cuts within Generation Progress, and although The Fine Print still received one of the higher grants available, it wasnt enough to continue printing magazines, Schuyler said. To make up for the loss, editors at The Fine Print decided to start up a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, an online donation website similar to Kickstarter. The fundraiser, Keep The Fine Print in Print, has generated, as of press time, $3,355 of its $4,300 goal. In addition to the online campaign, the magazine hosted a gallery of student art two weeks ago and raised more than $650 by charging an entrance fee of $5. The response has been encouraging, said Damian Gonzalez, an editor at The Fine Print. Its amazing, Gonzalez said. Its really reassuring to know that there is a community of people here in Gainesville that actually care about The Fine Print, care about Gainesville and care about Alachua enough to keep The Fine Print in print. While The Fine Print does publish online content, Gonzalez said the staff stands by the importance of keeping the magazine available in print. Whats really important is that people in Gainesville have something tangible to access, he said, something that they can pick up when theyre walking to class, something they can pick up when theyre walking to work and just read, he said. The campaign ends in less than two weeks.

JASMINE OSMONDAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers found a record number of crocodile hatchlings this year in South Florida. Over the summer, UFs Croc Doc team of biologists in Fort Lauderdale marked and released crocodile eggs in Everglades National Park. The Croc Doc team marked and released 962 hatchlings in the park, up from last years 554, according to a UF press release. Jeff Beauchamp, UF wildlife biologist and the alligator and crocodile project manager, said the increase in egg survival is the result of continued restoration efforts in the Everglades. Since the early 2000s, there has been a steady increase in crocodile population numbers. While hatchling numbers are a good sign, their survival rate is usually only about 5 percent, Beauchamp said. Franklin Percival, a UF associate professor who studies reptiles, said crocodiles are used as an indicator for restoration efforts because they live in both brackish and salt water. Its a good sign when oneyear surveys turn out like that, he said. It gives hope and indicates a good future. Beauchamp said that even though numbers were up this year, there is no way to guess the number of hatchlings next year. Crocodile hatchling numbers increase

PRIDE AND LGBT AFFAIRS DIDNT HAVE TIME TO PREPARE EVENTS. NICOLE WIESENTHALAlligator WriterDuring a week meant to raise awareness about bisexuality, Gainesville stood quiet. Bisexuality Awareness Week runs through this weekend, and despite national social media trends to spread awareness, UFs LGBT Student AfUnion and the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida did not plan events. I dont think that our country even has a full understanding of what bisexuality entails, said Aaron Victoria, head teaching assistant for UF human sexuality and culture, so I think awareness and programs that promote them and just by educating individuals who arent bisexual. More than half of all LGBT people are bisexual, according to a report released Monday in conjunction with the Bisexual Resource Center. The report emphasized the importance of reaching out to bisexual people. Pride Student Union President Collin Vernay wrote in an email he was planning Pride History Week which runs from Oct. 6 to 10 and could not respond. LGBT Affairs Student Ambassador and 20-year-old UF international studies junior Carolyn Cesarotti said it takes months to plan events like a Bisexual Awareness campaign time they simply didnt have, she said. ries where we had panelists to serve the whole LGBT spectrum, said Cesarotti. And I think thats an issue as far as bisexual and pansexual visibility, but a lot goes into programing for different events in Bisexual people are more likely to be poor, feel alienated in workplaces, be involved in violent relationships and have health complications than lesbians, gay people or homosexuals are, according to the report.

UGA also has never defeated UF in Gainesville, something that gives the No. 7 Gators an edge as the home team this evening. But Florida (6-2, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) knows getting the victory will not be easy.
