The shooting comes amid simmering tension between many community members and the police in Ferguson, where two-thirds of the residents are black, but only three African-American. The shooting of Brown and police response to the protests stoked a national discourse about police tactics and race. At about midnight Saturday, a group of about 100 protesters who mingled on a street corner, occasionally shouting No justice, no peace. By Sunday afternoon, the streets of Ferguson were quiet, with no visible signs of police or protesters. Police had closed part of a nearfrom several law enforcement agencies canvassed the area in search of the two suspects.

By bringing students, faculty and campus services together, epidemic at multiple colleges and universities across the nation. Shannon Johnson, a UF dietetics senior, said programs like this would make a difference for students. A lot of college students already have this pressure from the society, media and culture around them to look a certain way, Johnson, 22, said. The online program features a variety of services, including screenings, how-to guides, toolkits, professional advice and forums. Early detection could be a problem solver, said Christine Moreno, a UF microbiology and cell science senior.

The longer someone suffers, the more the thoughts and behaviors Proud2BMe strives to offer eating disorder education, resources and support on all college campuses to help students with eating and body image concerns. The initiative hopes to empower individuals to make changes in their lives and inspire communities to create healthier role models for others struggling with eating disorders. With the online component of Proud2Bme, the National Eating Disorders Association is in the process of developing on-campus programs that could appear in colleges as early as February. By providing education in the community and increasing general awareness, there is greater likelihood that someone will recognize someone (either themselves, a close friend or family member) who has an eating disorder and help refer that person for help, Davis said.

She will be talking about her story and who she is, not as a candidate, but as a person, said Mendez-Zamora, a 20year-old UF English junior. With voter registration deadlines approaching on Oct. 6, the forum hopes to teach students about a career in politics and urge them to vote. Im really excited to hear what she has to say and her story, said Natalie Pedota, a 21-year-old tourism, event and recreation management senior. Only 31 percent of eligible Latinos voted in the 2010 midterm elections, according to the Pew Research Center. A lot of people dont vote because they dont feel represented, Guerra, 21, said.

Scotts teacher debit cards show bad policyOne of the most shameful aspects of the public education system in America is the need for teachers to spend large sums of their own money to provide school supplies for their classrooms. Forbes reported that during the 2013-2014 school year, U.S. teachers spent an average of $513 out of pocket on purchases of school supplies. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature attempted to address this issue by enacting a publicly funded debit card program for the states teachers. The debit cards, worth $250 each, would allow teachers to purchase much-needed supplies for their students without having to spend as much of their own income. Unfortunately, the programs implementation has left much to be desired. Although the school year started in mid-August, Floridas teachers just received their debit cards last week. Obviously, by this point, many teachers have already purchased the necessary school supplies for their classrooms. Given the ill-conceived nature of the program, its not surprising that only seven of the states 67 school districts signed up. strangely seized upon the rollout of the program in an attempt to score political points. When teachers received their debit cards, they also received letters from JPMorgan Chase & Co., the bank supplying the cards. The letter read in part: Governor Rick Scott is committed to improving Floridas education system and recognizing their teachers for their hard work and dedication. Scotts actual record on public education funding in Florida tells another story. This ineffectual debit card program is simply a distraction from the harmful cuts Scott has made to Floridas from Floridas K-12 education budget. In fact, Scott wanted to cut even more, but his proposed cuts were too large for even the conservative Florida Legislature to swallow. Although most of those spending cuts have been restored in the ensuing years, Florida still spends nearly $200 less per Floridas education spending in 2007-2008 was nearly $2 billion more than Scotts proposed $18.8 billion in funding for 2014. any sort of consistent dedication to building a strong public education system in Florida. If Scott is truly interested in improving Floridas education system, he should withdraw his support for expensive, unreliable charter schools and focus on improving Floridas underfunded, overcrowded public schools. Voters should not be fooled by Scotts feeble attempt to cover up his misguided education policies. This debit card program is nothing but a distraction from his massive spending cuts and his failure to promote a stronger public education system in Florida.The Mysterious Case of Charlie CristThis week, all across the state of Florida, absentee ballots are being distributed, signaling the beginning of voting for the 2014 elections. Obviously, the most closely watched race is the one for Florida governor between Republican incumbent Rick Scott and the Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist. Over the course of the campaign, Scott and Crist have sought to exploit the others political record in order to gain the upper hand. This campaign is particularly interesting because of Crists past political life as a Republican. When Crist announced a few years ago that he was leavthen a Democrat, liberals couldnt contain their enthusiasm. Frankly, I still dont understand why. Crist was our self-proclaimed Ronald Reagan Republican governor here in Florida not too long ago, and it seems as if Democrats have completely forgotten about that. Have they forgotten that, as recently as 2008, Crist supported a ban on same-sex marriage? Crist voted in favor of the Florida Marriage Protection Amendment and said, Its what I believe in. Have Democrats also forgotten the fact that in 2010, Crist expressed his vehement support for pro-life policies? During for pro-life legislative efforts. Crist doesnt even really support President Barack Obamas supposed landmark achievement, the Affordable Care Act, also popularly known as Obamacare. In Crists book, published earlier this year, he wrote that he didnt love the presidents health-care plan and thought that it was too big, too complicated, and too bureaucratic. Appargoes on and on. Crists political transformation isnt necessarily surprising: Many politicians change their views during their careers, whether for political expediency or because of a genuine change of heart. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential on several issues. However, the political changes of Romney and Crist are not comparable. Romney changed his views on certain issues over a great deal of time, sometimes as many as 10 years. Crists views have changed repeatedly in just the last three or four years. The reason is simple: Crist is the ultimate career politician. There is a big difference between changing ones political views over time after thoughtful consideration and simply That is why Crist has gone from being a Republican to an Independent to a Democrat within the last four years: Crist doesnt care what party hes a member of, as long as he gets to remain in power. any of his stances seriously. When he says now that hes sorry for his vote in favor of Amendment 2 in 2008, or that he regrets his pro-life stances and is now strongly pro-choice, how can we believe him? Crist is nothing more than a political chameleon, changing his opinions and policy proposals depending on which way the political wind blows. Crist will say and do whatever it takes to be Floridas governor again, regardless of his previously stated principles or convictions. Do Florida voters really want to elect a governor who cares more about having a desk in Tallahassee than actually helping Floridians? Crists candidacy also says a lot about the current state of the Democratic Party. When the best candidate Democrats could recruit to challenge Scott was a Republican only four years ago, it shows that they are completely desperate and have no other viable options. Settling for Crist will cost the Democrats dearly on Nov. 4. Until then, hopefully they are happy with knowing they nominated a man who doesnt stand with their party because he doesnt stand for anyone but himself.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7Swamp Party candidate presents ideasHello, Gators! My name is Rachael Laky, and I am beyond excited to be a candidate for Hume Hall with Swamp Party. I would love to take the opportunity to share some of my background and reasons for pursuing this process. It is my genuine hope that, by reading this letter, you better understand what it is that makes me so passionate about Student Government and representing the students of UF. My passion for working with and for others is what sparked my interest in slating for Senate. I knew that the students I was surrounded by were a special and intelligent group of young adults. Their thoughts and concerns need to be addressed in SG in order to make our campus the best it can be. I support every aspect of Swamps platform, as well as the ideas for Hume. My top priorities are building a crosswalk for Hume West and implementing free printing in the Hume area. I also want to work on creating more of a community atmosphere in the Hume area, and I plan to collaborate with the Student Honors Organization to accomplish this task. I am excited to get to know as many students as possible in the coming weeks and to share my excitement for having the opportunity to make a difference at UF. Thank you, and go Gators! Rachael Laky, UF accounting majorLetter to the Editor In Brave New World, Aldous Huxleys iconic dystopian novel, the oppressive power structure uses sensationalist media to distract members of sues. Today, the American media is using these same tactics of distraction and distortion. If you havent heard yet, President Barack Obama has fallen victim to yet another absurd media attack. Recently, while exiting the Marine One chopper, the president offered a right-hand salute to two Marines. Critics, particularly those on Fox News, are outraged because Obama happened to have a cup of what they speculated to be chai tea in his right hand when he gave the salute. Retired Lt. Col. Michael Cermele called Obama a jerk for his perceived indifference during what is now being called the latte salute. Fox News Elisabeth Hasselbeck tried to address what some would call an unintentional act of disrespect on Obamas end, saying, When youre not intending to do something, you could be intending to do something. Hasselbecks nonsensical statement seeks to criminalize the president for an action that he probably hardly gave any thought to at all. The pundits at Fox News and other conservative media outlets are expressing outrage over this ridiculous, trivial non-issue. They are essentially asking: How could the U.S. president be so careless as to not think about switching his cup from his right hand to his left before saluting? Heres an answer for them: Because there are many, many more important things for the U.S. president to be thinking about. The 2014 U.N. Climate Summit is fast approaching. At this conference, world leaders will discuss the current and future effects of climate change on our world and society and what political leaders can do to counteract them. The U.S. is also dealing with recent rumors of ISIS planning to White House to symbolize its siege on America. American society is dealing with a series of complex and serious social issues. There is still racially charged social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, after the death of Michael Brown. Gender inequality, which was addressed by U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson in a recent speech promoting the HeForShe campaign, is another serious issue political leaders are grappling with. The president may have been thinking about any one of these things when he gave the so-called latte salute. switching his coffee cup to the other hand to salute the Marines greeting his helicopter. I would challenge anyone who sees the latte salute as a symbol of Obamas disrespect to our troops to take a step back and look at the big picture. If we are seeking to be socially aware and educated citizens content our mass media outlets present to us. The media should not be allowed to write the narrative and choose the lens through which we view the world. salute, even though George W. Bush would often awkwardly salute the troops while holding his pet schnauzer, Barney. For the record, I dont think Bush deserved to be criticized for his own doggie salute. It simply just isnt that important. If we allow the media to convince us that these trivial controversies are the most important issues facing America today, we risk falling into the same dystopian state as the society depicted in Brave New World. There are so many issues and threats American voters and political leaders must confront in the coming years. The latte salute controversy does nothing but place unnecessary focus on an issue that distracts from the real problems we face. TehQuin Forbes is a UF sociology junior. His columns appear on Mondays.President Obamas latte salute a non-issueColumn Recently, actress and millennial sweetheart Emma Watson gave a speech in front of the U.N. about the importance of male involvement in the womens rights movement. While I am a fan of Watson and the idea of male-inclusive feminism, Im not interested in making an impassioned plea for male support. The concept of gender equality is so simple. I dont feel the need to coax anyone male or female into supporting such a cause, nor do I want to explain to them why it does not yet exist. Im not going to drag out the statistics on wage inequality, launch into an overview of rape culture or explain why the concept of legitimate rape is bogus. If you dont support the idea of a womens rights movement because its too emasculating or you believe it discriminates against men, I cant help you. It is not that I am opposed to any sort of criticism of the womens rights movement. In fact, I would agree ing a multitude of issues. For decades, the movement has systematically excluded African-American, Latino, Asian-American, Arab-American and other non-white women. While I appreciate her support, the recent media attention on Emma Watsons speech follows a long tradition of upper-class white women being uplifted as the face of feminism. The feminist movement has also forsaken gender non-conformessential to the discussion of gender equality. Feminism has failed us in so many ways, and I welcome change in the womens rights movement. However, it has never failed to reach out to men or attempt to win their favor. I cant count the number of conversations Ive heard in just the past year about feminism consisting of mostly women attempting to explain its importance to mostly belligerent men. Although wed appreciate it, feminists dont need the support of males. Im WeForShe, and if anyone male, female or somewhere along the spectrum wants to join, they are more than welcome.

Just trying to make the most of your opportunity when youre on the court, regardless of whether were up, were down, whatever the score is just trying to get better every day. But it was the leadership of junior middle blocker Simone Antwi that helped Florida sweep Ole Miss. The Fairfax Station, Va., native had a career day with 11 kills on 13 attempts, giving her a .769 hitting percentage topping her previous career-best mark of .706 set against Stanford on Sept. 7, 2013 and one block assist. Antwi was noticeably absent from Floridas lineup just one week earlier in its 3-2 loss to Marquette on Sept. 19. Wise said an undisclosed injury kept Antwi from competing, but Wise was happy to see that Antwis two weeks out of the game hadnt affected her play. Last week I had a lot of time off because I couldnt play, so there was a lot of mental just sitting in practice and watching things, Antwi said. When I got back it was kind of just getting back into the rhythm of thing so that Against Auburn, Antwi .333 hitting clip in addition to three total blocks. Antwis progression from Friday to Sunday after sitting out with an injury before SEC play is positive for Floridas middle blockers, which was forced to rotate more players in attempt to replace Antwis presence. Simone, now in her fourth year in the program, we ask a lot of her, Wise said. (She is) by far the most experienced of the middles. Its not just the numbers, but the presence she give us and making good decisions on the court. She really stabilizes us, she is the captain of the line defense, is the best way to describe her role. When we dont have her we really miss that, as much physically, but really in a lot of ways just in terms of scheming and her presence on the court. Warner who led the Gators divishes in the 1-meter and 3-meter diving event. Schultz, who came over to Florida from Arkansas, so it was an awksay the least. It was tough because I kept watching the Arkansas divers in the water during the warmups and thinking, oh I missed their dive, but it was good, Schultz said. out of the way with the transition that has happened.

Florida was under intense pressure from the Tigers until Savannah Jordan took control of the situation, scoring her seventh ute to give the Gators a 3-1 lead, and more importantly, breathing room. From that point on, the Gators took seven more shots, while the Tigers only managed to get off one, giving Florida complete control for the rest of the game. Coach Becky Burleigh said the team didnt play as well as it could have, but ultimately the players got the job done. In the end, thats what we were looking for coming out of this weekend, was the six points, and thats what we got, so were happy about that, she said. I think were just gonna continue to grow and grow and grow. the Gators victory. Florida played 22 players in Sundays game, versus 17 for Missouri, and during a hot afternoon in Gainesville, keeping players fresh was one of the reasons Florida was able to the game. Its great during the games when we have an opportunity to show our depth, because we really have so many people on the bench that can get in and make a huge impact, said Middleton, who came off the bench to proGators. Missouris depth was hurt by Clark, who did not play in the game. Burleigh described Clark as the Tigers best player, and said she was disappointed the Gators werent able to compete against her.
