WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2018 ALLIGATOR 5By Elliott NasbyAlligator Staff WriterA proposal that would provide free tampons and pads on campus was not approved by the Student Government Budget and Appropriations Committee on Monday evening. Inspire Party Senator Branden Pearson asked the nine-person committee to use students activity and service fees to pay for feminine hygiene products. However, after 20 minutes of deliberations, the committee unanimously voted against the code revision, stating various complaints, including that the fundhalf of the UF Student Body. Pearson cited a petition, launched by student group Gators Matter, Period. in the Fall. The petition has amassed more than 4,000 signatures in support of UFsupplied menstrual care items. He said it was evidence the issue was being directly voiced by students. Thats what student government is for, Pearson said. We are here on campus to take student ideas and make them realities. The committee said the petition was unclear about how many signatures came from students and if the issue was also being voiced by male students. Florida State Universitys student government approved a similar legislation early last year, which Pearson said was reason for UF to consider a policy change of its own. Harvard University, University of California, Los Angeles, Emory University and Brown University have also implemented similar campus programs. The change was struck down before it was open to Senate review and plans for the distribution of feminine hygiene products were drawn out. Pearson said he was disappointed with the committees decision but said there are plans to seek other funding. We want to proceed with as many doors open as possible, he said. @_ElohEl enasby@alligator.orgSG committee rejects proposal for free tampons, pads By Elliott NasbyAlligator Staff WriterUF researchers will be working with Stanford University to improve healthcare access to Type 1 diabetes patients who dont have access to hospitals. The UF Diabetes Institute received a $1.6 million donation Jan. 9 for the collaborative go to recommended endocrinologist appointments every three to four months because of the cost and distance to travel for healthcare, said Dr. Michael Haller, UF professor and chief in the department of pediatrics. Its an opportunity to provide better care for patients living with a chronic disease that requires 24/7 management, Haller said. Type 1 diabetes is tough even for the patients that have great access to great care. The money was given to the UF Diabetes Institute by the Leona M. & Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to fund a state-wide, 18-month pilot project with Stanford University. Haller said more funds could be donated again if the project is successful. The project is aimed at training primary care physicians across the state to treat patients who live far away in innovative ways. The research does not emphasize the direct treatment of patients, but instead focuses on increasing their access to care through tools such as telemedicine, or video conferencing, which would not require a physical hospital visit. Haller said telemedicine is more economproviders. The telemedicine project is based on a model of care called Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, which is being piloted in Florida and California due to high rates of diabetes within the states populations of underserved patients. Haller said UF is where research will stem. The idea of an ECHO is places with expertise, like us, serve as a hub, Haller said. If we can prove that this works, theoretically, this would be something that would be used nationwide. @_ElohEl enasby@alligator.orgUF Diabetes Institute gets $1.6 million gift for project THE BILL WOULD ALSO REQUIRE ALL STATE UNIVERSITIES TO ADOPT BLOCK TUITION. By Jessica GilesAlligator Staff WriterUF students receiving a Bright Futures Scholarship may see more money in their bank accounts if a Florida senate bill passes in the House. The Florida Senate unanimously passed the Florida Excellence in Higher Education Act of 2018, on Thursday. The bill, which now awaits consideration in the Florida House, would permanently expand the Bright Futures Scholarships Program for the top two tiers of scholars and require all state universities to adopt a block tuition system. UF spokesperson Janine Sikes said the bill addresses several of UFs highest priorities, but they are still in the early stages of working with the legislators to create the best proposal. Theres some very, very positive pieces of that legislation that would very The bill provides a permanent expansion of the Bright Futures Programs from the change that was made in the 2017-2018 school year. The change was set for a year, but this bill would permanently expand the program for the Academic and Medallion scholars the top two tiers of Bright Futures. Under this bill, students who receive the top Bright Futures scholarship, referred to as Academic scholars, will have 100 percent of their tuition and fees covered and receive $300 for textbooks. Students who receive the second-tier award, known as Medallion scholars, will have 75 percent of their tuition and fees covered by their Bright Futures scholarship. Both Academic and Medallion scholars would be able to use Bright Futures scholarships for Summer term enrollment if the bill passes. Anthony Leonardi, a UF political science sophomore, currently receives the Academic scholar award. Although, he wouldve liked to see the permanent expansion sooner, he is glad state government is willing to reward students who perform well. Right now were in a situation where smart kids are not rewarded like they should be, the 20-year-old said. The bill would also require that all state universities switch to a block tuition method by Fall 2018. Under block each semester rather than per-credithour. The block tuition method is meant to improve on-time graduation rates by incentivizing students to take on a larger course load without bearing the extra Students at UF protested the implementation of block tuition in the 20102011 school year, which the administrarising graduation rates, according to Alligator archives. Leonardi doesnt believe students should be pushed to take on more credit hours through the block tuition because it could hinder their involvement outside the classroom. I think that there are a lot of extracurricular programs that we also need to incentivize people to take part in, he said. This is one of the things that the University of Florida has pushed. They want us to be involved in the Gator community. @jessica_giles_ jgiles@alligator.orgFlorida Senate approves bill for Bright FuturesBy Christina MoralesAlligator Staff WriterAfter the former Senate ProTempore resigned, citing a lack of respect for minorities, UFs Tuesday night. In a 54-20 vote, Trevor Schaettle (Impact, District B) will begin his four-week term as Senate President Pro-Tempore, effective immediately. Schaettle formerly held the position in Spring 2017. Im really excited for the opportunity to bring as many qualichamber, he said. The special election between Zachariah Chou (Inspire, Murphree) and Schaettle, Impact majority party leader, comes a week after the resignation of previous Senate President Pro-Tempore Janae Moodie. Moodie said her party and Student Government tokenize minorities. Schaettle said he knew about Moodies plans to resign but disagreed with her and said SG is diverse. I try to stay as unbiased and passion when we chose senators, he said. Thats not to say we dont pick diverse senators. As a committee, we shouldnt have diversity be the only thing that we look for. Senator Mackintosh Joachim (Inspire, Graham) said diversity is an issue that needs to be addressed in the Senate and asked Schaettles and Chous approach. overnight. He hopes to meet with multicultural groups on campus to learn about their needs. Before his loss, Chou proposed the idea of exit interviews for all departing senators. Student Government is pretty numb about when people leave Senate, Chou said. Its important to make Senate more inclusive and thoughtful. The Senate also voted down an amendment proposed by Austin Young, a UF political science and religion senior, in committee. The amendment would change how future constitutional including abstention votes in The opportunity for the bill to be debated was voted down 50-24 when amending the agenda. The bottom line is that its simply not right that the judiciary committee would withhold [the bill] from the rest of the Senate, the 22-year-old said. I think its wrong for a small committee to decide arbitrarily for the Senate not to vote on it. @Christina_M18 cmorales@alligator.orgUF Student Senate elects new President Pro-Tempore Taylour Marks / Alligator Staff Trevor Schaettle, a 21-year-old UF history senior, was elected Senate President Pro-Tempore at Tuesday evenings senate meeting.

By Andrew HuangSports Writer The list of injuries was already long for the Florida mens basketball team. Senior center John Egbunu (6-foot11, 265 pounds): 17 games missed. Freshman forward Isaiah Stokes (6-foot-8, 270 pounds): 17 games missed. Freshman forward Chase Johnson (6-foot-9, 205 pounds): 13 games missed. Then, at the start of SEC play, sophomore center Gorjok Gak (6-foot11, 245 pounds) and freshman guard Deaundrae Ballard (6-foot-5, 195 pounds) were added to that list, missing time for various health reasons. But when Florida (12-5, 4-1 SEC) hosts Arkansas (12-5, 2-3 SEC) tonight at 7, none of that will matter. Not the fact that in addition to missing Egbunu, Gak the only other true center on the roster will likely be sidelined with a concussion. Not the fact that the size already lost in the frontcourt could be worsened by the absence of Ballard, one of the teams taller guards, who is listed toms. have missed a combined 50 games this year, forcing their teammates still standing to pull their weight and then some. Coach Mike White will look for his short-handed team to play consistent defense against a Razorbacks squad that ranks second in the SEC with 85.1 points per game. Theyre very much up-tempo, but theyll also try to pound you in the paint a little bit, White said. (Daned, calling the 6-foot-11 Arkansas forward one of the top young frontcourt talents in college basketball. The Gators offense isnt far behind, sitting at third in the SEC with 81.6 points per game. The infusion of transfer guards Jalen Hudson and Egor Koulechov has been a big part of Floridas offensive success. Hudson leads the team with 16.2 points per game, while Koulechov is second with 15.2 points per game. White expects a fast-paced game, and with both teams ranking in the bottom half nationally in scoring defense, the Gators and the Razorbacks Florida's football team, led by new strength and conditioning coach Nick Savage, began its offseason conditioning program on Tuesday morning, going on a 2.2-mile run around campus.

Freshmen Duarte Vale and Oliver Crawford will represent the Gators as the youngest of 32 players in the tournament. Eight of the 10 players on UFs roster participated in the events qualifying rounds, with junior Alfredo Perez resting for Mondays home opener against UCF and redshirt senior Joshua Wardell out due to a season-ending injury. Two rounds into last weekends action, six Gators remained unbeaten. But third-round losses from senior Chase Perez-Blanco, junior McClain Kessler and sophomore Johannes Ingildsen left only the two freshmen and senior Jordan Belga undefeated. bracket to Crawford (6-1, 6-1). Crawford is scheduled to play the 512th world-ranked singles player, Fred Gil of Portugal. The match will mark Crawfords greatest challenge so far in Kirchheimer, who played the No. 1 singles court at Northwestern before graduating last year. In November, Kirchheimer held a top-900 singles ranking in the world. The two will play no sooner than 11 a.m. and will be immediately followed by Crawford's match against Gil. @bhb1227 bbrandt@alligator.orgGators competing in main draw of Sunrise tourneyIn games that I have no emotional stake in, I root for chaos. And punts both blocked and returned provide a good chance of something ridiculous happening. Having learned this stupid fact, theres one moment that stands out to me during the crazy NFC divisional playoff game between Minnesota and New Orleans. No, not the Diggs catch and run. Not even the goosebump-inducing chants of, SKOL! SKOL! ringing throughout U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis before the kneel down on the extra point. Im thinking about a pivotal moment that happened earlier in the fourth quarter. With 5:28 remaining and the Vikings up 2014, the Saints forced a fourth-and-14 punt. On the snap, Saints defensive end George Johnson got penetration up the middle, jabbed his left hand toward Vikings punter Ryan Quigleys right foot and blocked the punt. The ball was recovered at the Minnesota 40-yard line, and the Saints took the lead shortly after. The 30-year-old Johnson is on his fourth team, having not started a single game in eight of his nine NFL seasons. It was a great play that merited attention and praise. In the moment, however, he received relatively little of either. The Fox broadcasting team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman was too busy fawning over a Saints player coming off the edge, Taysom Hill. Hill is a third-string quarterback who coach Sean Payton likes to use in special teams packages. He was also credited initially by Buck and Aikman for blocking the punt. After the replay showed that was not the case, Buck hastily corrected himself. Hill didnt block it, he said, but his motor and his heart certainly contributed. Buck and Aikman proceeded to practically bend over backwards to give Hill credit for that block. Hill is a white man. Johnson is black. Do you see what Im getting at here?
