Were not asking you to relive the awkward times, exactly, but just the feeling of having an administration that your future. They were adults, and you were still trying to grasp algebra. They knew best, of course. But did you know you had rights? The case Tinker v. Des Moines may sound familiar to some. students First Amendment rights. Mary Beth Tinker donned a black armband to protest the Vietnam War when she went to school. She was a 13-year-old junior high school student with a voice. But school administrators suspended her, and her case reached the Supreme Court. Students, the Court held, do not shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate. But on Jan. 13, 1988, the Supreme Court made a decision that restricted those rights for students, in a case known as Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier. The issue at hand? A story about divorce and another about teen pregnancy was set to be published in Hazelwood East High Schools paper, The Spectrum. But the principal, who felt the topics were inappropriate, prohibited the publication from running the stories. The students argued their First Amendment rights were violated. Despite a lower court agreeing with them, the Supreme Court sided with the principal and said no rights were not violated. Because the paper was sponsored by the school, and because it was not a public forum in which everyone could share their views, the principal had the right to make the call, the Supreme Court decided. What this means today is students are being censored by their own administration. We live in a time when news outlets are strained for resources and student journalists are becoming the watchdogs of their community. We can point to instances where student reporters have broken news that professional papers were catching up on. A Kansas high school newspaper wrote about their new principals credentials. She later resigned. Just last week, a Utah high school principal deleted an article the student newspaper published on a Student journalists deserve our support in protecting their rights. New Voices legislation, started by the Student Press Law Center, is trying to give student journalists, both at the highschool and college level, protection from censorship. Only 13 states have passed the legislation, according to the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. (Spoiler alert: Florida is not on this list, although theres a campaign to get it passed.) In six of these states, protections are limited to high-school students only. This lack of protection has real impacts. Within these inciUtah have started a new publication outside of school control. The paper in Virginia ran the article online anyway. But these are battles that shouldnt have to be fought. If an 18-year-old college freshman can report on their college, why cant an 18-year-old high school senior report on their public school? Today, the Student Press Law Center is hosting Hazelwood Day of Action, with the hashtag #CureHazelwood.

Help them learn to become the responsible reporters they aspire to became.Student journalists deserve your support I am skeptical of Facebooks algorithm changesA couple of weeks ago, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will change their focus and algorithms. According to a Facebook post, Zuckerberg has tasked his emrelevant content, and more about helping you have more meaningful social interactions. Consequently, your news feed will soon show you less global content and more local content, less CNN and Nike and more from your friends and family. Zuckerberg understands this change as an overdue revival of sorts; a return to what Facebook originally purported to do. He wrote in his post, We built Facebook to help people stay connected and bring us closer together with the people that matter to us. Thats why weve always put friends and family at the core of the experience. Dear reader, you wont hear me complaining about that statement. I am a fan of Zuckerbergs attempt at facilitating meaningful relationships. It seems to me that he is trying to clarify one simple question: What is Facebook really for? The answer to this question a year ago would not have been as principled as it is now. Despite the warnings of every living sociologist and psychologist, I use my news feed for news, and maybe not surprisingly, it is drunk with information. As I scroll, the story my feed tells me is untraceable, incoherent and dizzying. I go from Trump to the Grammys, from Putin to Lebron James and from something about culture to a video of a baby sloth. And I do so all within a few scrolls. I suppose that is what Zuckerberg wants to change. He wants our feeds to be of people we know, not world news or advertisements. He has made it clear that Facebook something we consume, like Coca-Cola or Pollo Tropical, or any other commodity on the market; it is a a business a very large one at that. Im not sure if our news feeds will ever be wholly social spaces. At some level, Facebook will always be a business trying to sell a product, and thus for meaningful social interaction as long as it is making money, and we need to remember that. on what caused Zuckerbergs change of mind and heart. The Facebook of the 2016 presidential election was the Wild West of social media. Its where fake news was given taxonomy. It is well known that Zuckerberg felt culpable for Trumps election and for allowing Facebook to become overgrown with senseless amounts of information too much to understand. If we are going to remain human amid change and upheaval, then we must keep our focus on people. Zuckerberg was not the only one who lost sight of this. Nevertheless, I doubt a change in algorithm will have much effect. People are already assuring businesses that they can adjust to Facebooks changes and our feeds. People like me have grown used to getting news from our feed and our social interaction from elsewhere. As I said earlier, Facebook is a business. The changes they are making are noble, but from a business perspective, I think they make Facebook obsolete. Facebook is trying to be more social, but that struck gold a decade ago. That is why I dont think an algorithm change will impact much of anything and consequently will not change Facebook that much either. I admire your ideals Zuckerberg, but sadly that wont keep your business alive and well. Scott Stinson is a UF English junior.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7 In todays ultra-connected world, a friend is no longer just a friend. Thanks to a modern-day cocktail of social media, pop culture and shifting societal norms, todays friendship roles can range anywhere from Facebook friends to even the occasional frenemy. We live in an era where a friendship takes on many different meanings, which means people have a greater propensity to develop what social psychologists call weak ties than ever before. As a result, its becoming less common for people to have one strong group of core friends and more common for people to have a large network of acquaintances. Weak ties are better known as relationships that only scratch the surface, as far as impacting our personal lives. Many of our Facebook friends are examples of weak ties because they understand our lives in a series of select snippets and moments, which are accessible to everyone in our friends or followers list. On the other hand, our core or primary ties are family and friendship bonds crucial to we quite literally wouldnt be ourselves without these relationships. Our core friends hear our personal stories. We see them as the family members weve chosen. Core friends are dynamic, meaning that even with factors like distance and changing interests, we remain bonded to them over the course of many years and share with them a special connection, even when we arent around them on a regular basis. Some psychologists fear that as we develop bigger social circles of acquaintances, though, well end up with weaker core bonds, which can have long-term implications. This is because as we age, primary friendships become more important to health, happiness and wellbeing, according to a 2017 study from the journal, Personal Relationships. In the study, researcher William Chopik, a psychology professor from Michigan State University, analyzed more than 270,000 people in nearly 100 countries and concluded that while both family and friend relationships were linked with happiness and health as a whole, at older ages, people were more likely to report that their happiness stemmed solely from their strong friendships rather than family members. This isnt to say that family relationships arent important, but Chopiks research focused on the previously ignored topic family members) impact individuals later in life. tween our acquaintances and our core friends is oftentimes blurred. Our friends now may have been strangers just two years ago. How do we know who well stay close with after graduation? Is there a way of knowing? What if we burn bridges with someone who, later in life, ends up being our colleague, roommate, best friend, boss or even romantic partner? While the topic of friendship can feel uncertain, especially for 20-somethings on the cusp of the post-college bubble, we need to realize that when it comes to the size of our so-called social network, quantity doesnt always mean and transformative parts of life, and it will only become more important as we grow up. I believe that if we truly want to cultivate and maintain friendships that withstand the test of time, its our responsibility to invest in those who are central to our lives. And while we dont exactly need a research study to understand the value of friendship, in a world where its glamorous to always be busy, successful and an all-around boss, a reminder never hurt.

Thank you so much for being here and for your strength. Her words followed the victim-impact statement of Bailey Lorencen, a former gymnast who was sexually abused by Nassar under the guise of medical treatment. It was which 156 victims who had previously been doubted, discredited and silenced, were heard. Aquilina responded to each victims statement, verbalizing what many in the country were feeling as the scenes played out. The monster who took advantage of you is going to wither, much like the scene in the Wizard of Oz where the water gets poured on the witch, and the witch withers away, she told one woman who spoke about the abuse she endured. To another former gymnast and survivor, she said, Your dreams are still out there; his are squashed. In her gave every victim, coach and family member the chance to speak: I try to treat everybody like family because thats the justice system that I was raised to believe in. heroes. They looked their abuser in the eye, told their stories and fought to reclaim the power that had been stripped from them. Aquilina was the faithful sidekick, helping to amplify their voices while staying out of the way. She cleared her docket for a week to give every victim the chance to speak, and she held nothing back when showing her support for their bravery. She gave the him to likely die behind bars. The humanity she showed in her comments to victims is something we don't expect from people who work in the court system. Its part of the reason shes being criticized all over the internet and accused of grandstanding by the public. This backlash is disappointing, but in a society where victims of sexual abuse are systematically dissuaded from coming forward, its also not surprising. What Aquilinas critics fail to understand is that the seven-day stretch in court was not a trial; it was a sentencing hearing. Nassar had already pled guilty to sexual assault charges, and it was Aquilinas job to determine a prison term, rather than a guilty or innocent status. Allowing victims of his heinous crimes to shape that sentence wasnt sway, only stories to be told. Had Aquilina tims never would have had their chance to tell them to the public, to the courtroom and to the man who sexually abused. But her emotionally charged comments after each of their statements were nothing new, Stephen Gillers, a law professor at New York University told the New York Times. At a sentencing a judge can say and is encouraged to say just what she thinks, he said. There are times when judicial distance is warranted, and emotions should be left out of the courtroom. This was not one of those times. If we want to encourage victims of sexual assault to come forward, we have to listen to them, voice our support for them and believe them. Despite her critics, Aquilina did her job with dignity, fairness and empathy. To balance the scales of justice we should all learn to do the same. Carly Breit is a UF journalism senior.

Jason Matthews, the keyboardist for Electric Kif, said that both groups are bringing high energy and long set lists. Dynamo is these great dudes from Nashville, like a killer group. Its going to be sick. Its really a meaty show, Matthews said. Dynamo is an eight-piece band with other musicians rotating in and out. The Nashville groups size allows them to create incredibly layered instrumental performances overlaid with Dain Usserys uplifting vocals. Its awesome; our last record was such a collaboration in so many ways, Dynamo keyboardist Ryan Connors said. Everyone is so open to everyones ideas, too. I love that. This group is really great about no egos and always catering to the music and the message. Though they tour heavily in the Northeast, Dynamo rarely makes it to the South. This tour marks Dynamos second time visiting Gainesville. Id be lying if I said I wasnt looking forward to warmer weather, Connors said. Dynamo records all of their music live and with an audience. Currently, the group is working on their next album and plans to perform a number of their unreleased tracks at Saturdays show. Dynamo is our creative outlet. In terms of were not really shooting for necessarily some commercial success, Connors said. So, we can just do whatever we want. In addition to performing and recording, the musicians from Dynamo love to give back by putting on workshops at local schools during their tours. As a group that has all studied music extensively, Dynamo is able to provide practical music career advice to students while encouraging an interest in music. Its really rewarding for us, and were always trying to do more of that, Connors said. Unlike Dynamo, Electric Kif is primarily an instrumental group, leaning into their musical abilities to build a world of music that ebbs between the worlds of jazz, rock, funk and something else. That something else lies in the middle of Rodrigo Zambranos, Eric Escanes, Armando Lopezs and Jason Matthews various backgrounds. Hailing from France, Mexico, Miami and Philadelphia, each band member brings a personal touch to the group that, overall, creates Electric Kif. For Matthews, that touch came from listening to his parents records from the s and playing in local jazz clubs. Last year, Electric Kif released and began a major tour that carried them to shows and festivals around the country. This tour was critical, the band in ways they didnt know they needed. When you go on the road, you form a band intuition, like you start reading each other really well, Matthews said. The more experiences that you have, nothing can throw you off. Now, Matthews said the friendship and chemistry among the members of Electric Kif is magnetic for audiences as much as it is fun for them. This bond has also helped them with their writing process. Electric Kif is preparing to release their second studio album later this year. Unlike Heist, this new album will feature a more melodic, groove-based sound and various vocal guests. Despite these changes, Matthews said the band is devoted to their instrumental edge The band is taking their time with this record. By really digging into the collaborative writing process, Matthews believes the new record will represent something more whole and cohesive. I want it to be a piece of art, Matthews said. In addition to the album release later in 2018, Electric Kif is also planning to put out a series of new videos, early released tracks and possibly a live album recorded at the Rochester International Jazz Festival in the coming months. These videos, which are created from the bands more intimate jam sessions, allow the listener to experience the music in a more organic way.

In honor of the start of February this week, heres some of our favorite upcoming events that will hold you over until spring break. Changeville Music & Arts Festival at various locations Feb. 8 to 9 Changeville, the music and arts festival hosted by the annual frank conference, is no doubt Februarys largest gathering. The two-day festival will quite literally take over downtown with poetry, music, and other talented individuals pushing for social change. Whether you prefer the intimacy of a local show or the smooth hipChangeville will have something for everyone. Find more info at Bleep Bloop and Ethan Glass at Simons Feb. 9 Although his name may sound silly, Bleep Bloops signature is anything but. This producer refuses to conform to any true genre, utilizing a gritty, in-yourface sound thats bursting with bass. His shows get weird, to say the least, and hes guaranteed to blow the doors off Simons Tickets are available from $10 to $15 at Neon Liger X 10-Year Anniversary and Reunion at The Wooly Feb. 10 Neon Liger, the underground dance party that went strong for a full seven years, hosts its 10-year anniversary Feb. 10. The event was originally intended to be a one-time thing, but after hundreds of people packed out Spannk (later known as The Motor Room), the party turned into a weekly event. Although Neon Liger concluded with The Motor Rooms closure in 2015, the folks behind it return once a year to host an anniversary party. With three areas both indoors and out and production from Gator Sound and Lighting, this anniversary should be the biggest yet. Admission is $10. Destination Okeechobee at High Dive Feb. 15 Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival is less than one month away, and many UF students and Gainesville residents alike will be heading south for the festival come March. Roughly two weeks bebands will compete for a spot, battle of the bands-style, on High Dives stage. Faze Leigh Bassett, The Savants of Soul and VENM will battle it out. Tickets are available at for $6 in advance or $8 at the door. Digital Ethos at Simons Feb. 18 February is a great month for bass lovers. Digital Ethos, a New Jerseybased heavyweight of a producer whos grown in popularity since collaborating with Bassnectar on wonky dubstep track Slather, will bring his talents to Simons toward the end of the month with a handful of local support. Tickets are available for $10.50 to $17.89 at February Events: Who to see and where to see them Courtesy to the AlligatorDigital Ethos, a producer from New Jersey with a heavy sound, is one of multiple electronic performers to hit Gainesville this month.
