By Amanda RosaAlligator Staff WriterAfter a 2015 The Washington Post article reported the plunging numbers of UFs black students, the former vice president for Student Affairs commissioned the Black Student Affairs Taskforce a group of staff, faculty and students to research how to improve the campus experience for black students. A residential space for black students was one of the key suggestions. In Fall 2017, UF opened the Black Cultural Living Learning Community in Graham Hall. In its inaugural year, 52 of Graham Halls 203 residents are in the Living Learning Community. About half of Graham residents are in AIM, an academic support program with a majority black population. Although many AIM students didnt sign up to be in the Living Learning Community, they live alongside it. One year into the program, The Alligator asked students about their experiences. Most residents said theyre excited to have a space dedicated to their culture. However, some said more can be done to promote the community. Growing up, Vanessa Nevy said she never felt like a minority. Surrounded by other black and Hispanic residents in Kissimmee, she felt at home in the neighborhood she lovingly nicknamed Little Puerto Rico. But when she walked into a lecture hall isolated.

I thought itd be more diverse, he said. Im looking out at the crowd, and this is fairly close to a Klan rally. The Australian comedian performed time Thursday night in front of what he heralded as the most sober audience hes ever seen. During his hourlong routine, Jefferies touched on everything from President Donald Trumps election to single parenting. Jefferies was paid a total of $125,000, according to Alligator archives. Jefferies promised to remedy the audiences sobriety after the show. Well go drinking afterwards as a group, he said. Ill try to sleep with one of you, but Ill do it fully consensually.

Despite the laughter in the Phillips Center, Jefferies shared that not all of his performances have been well-received. The comedian recalled one show where he had bottles thrown at him for telling a joke about dead babies and another uncomfortable surprise performance at Mariah Careys 50th birthday. During the Q&A portion, instead of slinging punch lines at Trump and other celebrities, Jefferies shifted his aim toward the audience.

The original email had come from Joseph Cacioppo, a UF student who had hoped to ask his girlfriend of a year and seven months to marry him. So he emailed Fuchs, hoping for some help. Boone, at the request of her boss, got to work with getting in touch with Cacioppo, a UF computer science senior. She gathered reinforcements from the other women in perfect campus proposal setting in just a few hours. The story surfaced Wednesday when Fuchs tweeted out part of Cacioppos email, along with a posed photo of the nowtook with them. CONGRATULATIONS Joseph & Caitlyn! he wrote. Cacioppo had originally planned to propose to Simpson at a sunset photoshoot at Paynes Prairie, but the thunalternative. One of Cacioppos friends jokingly suggested during lunch Friday at Chipotle Mexican Grill to contact Fuchs for help. Cacioppo said he didnt expect anything to come out of his email to Fuchs, but within half an hour, he heard back from Boone. He got the email in between meetings, Boone said. So she took charge. She contacted Robin Schrieber, assistant to the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and got a key to the Keene Faculty Center in Dauer Hall as a last-minute plan. At about 7 p.m. Saturday, Cacioppo brought Simpson to the room. Its large windows aland antique furniture.

I thought we were just going to do this photoshoot for our friend, so I was completely caught off guard when he started proposing, Simpson said. It was a good surprise. On Wednesday, the couple stopped by Tigert Hall to deliver cookies to Boone as thanks for helping arrange the proposal. As they left the building, Simpson said she spotted Fuchs getting out of his car. So Cacioppo introduced themselves. Hey President Fuchs, were that couple who you helped get engaged, Cacioppo said. Cacioppo said he hasnt thought about inviting the president to their wedding, but he may plan to now. Boones advice: Send an invite because you never know. He is very passionate about the students.

DEPUTIES SAID HE TOUCHED A GIRL. By Robert LewisAlligator Staff WriterAuthorities arrested the associate director of human resources for UFs College of Veterinary Medicine last Friday on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior. Daniel Joseph Sanetz, 46, inappropriately touched a girl between the ages of 12 and 16 about four months ago, according to an arrest report. Sanetz has worked at UFs College of Veterinary Medicine for 21 years, UF spokesperson Margot Winick wrote in an email. During a Feb. 1 interview with the Child Protection Team, the girl said Sanetz rubbed her hip and later rested his hand on her knee, according to the report. He then got up and left the tent the two were laying in and returned about 15 or 30 minutes later, according to the report. He touched her hip again and then began to rub the small of her back, according to the report. Then Sanetz slipped his hands into her pants, according to the report. She did not move because she was terSanetz then put his hand into her underwear and touched her intimate areas, according to the report. The girl turned away, forcing his hands out of her pants, according to the report. During a call set up by the Alachua Friday, Sanetz said he put his hands in the girls pants and touched her inappropriately, according to the report. Deputies said he apologized multiple times. When deputies tried to interview Sanetz, he asked for a lawyer, according to the report. He was arrested and taken to the Alachua County Jail where he remains, as of press time, in lieu of a $250,000 bond. A trespass warning was issued against Sanetz a day after his arrest by University Police, according to its website. Winick said Sanetzs salary is $85,730. UF is aware of Sanetzs arrest, she said, but had no comment on his employment status. @Lewis__Robert rlewis@alligator.orgUF College of Veterinary Medicine employee arrested Santez

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7Three years ago, Sony introduced the PlayStation Vue, an innovative new take on television and entertainment consumption. Breaking free from outdated technology like cable lines and messy cords, PlayStation Vue is a television service that requires only an internet connection to enjoy. Through the use of internet streaming, Vue takes the on-demand eleThe result is a dynamic hybrid that will change the television game forever. Internet television is the future. The problem is we might have to wait a few years before it takes over. The idea behind Vue is brilliant. With four comprehensive packages to choose from, you can pick and choose what you watch. Sports fans can buy the sports package and get every sports channel available and not have to pay for the channels they never watch. Its nothing more. Is this a viable business in the world of youll hear of people who have ditched television completely and only pay for streaming services. While its a novel idea, a world of er be the mainstream practice. Too many people also watch sports and news, not to mention any content not on your preferred streaming service. peacefully for the foreseeable future. Vue is pursuing the consumer whos curTV. As Vue director of business Amir Nag told The Wall Street Journal, this is the PlayStation user who is today not watching TV and driving a large ratings decline and who is at route over cable TV. Like print newspapers, the only thing keeping cable alive is the baby boomer generation. Everett Rogers and his theory of the diffusion of innovation categorizes all consumers into product or service (such as Vue) goes through an S-shaped growth curve, dictated by the preferences lie on the curve. In the beginning (embryonic) stage, growth is slow. The two groups of consumers in this stage are the innovators (high risk tolerance, technologically savvy and est thing) and the early adopters (comfortable with technology and able to see future utility from new products). Demand here is slow but starts to pick up and proliferate once the mass market bethe early and late majority segments adopt the new product once they see its usefulness and A product lives and dies by what is known as the competitive chasm between the early embryonic stage and the mass market. Simply ers and mass market are vastly different, and if a company does not have a product that can satisfy the majority, it fails. Vue is already crossing into the growth stage as the mass market starts to adopt it. With about 670,000 subscribers as of December 2017, growth is starting to pick up as Vue moves out of the embryonic stage and into growth. So is it only a matter of time before Vue segment of consumer is the laggard, who is the last to adopt a new product. They refuse to change and adapt their way of life and rarely do so unless forced to. Will the boomers be willing to cut the cable emergence as the dominant television service will be rapid. If not, then it might be a few more years. Regardless, Vue is appearing to be the superior option and will likely be the future of television. Andrew Hall is a UF management senior.

We need to shift the way we think about the DRC. Lets talk about the DRC. First, lets look at their mission statement: The Disability Resource Center celebrates disability identity as a valued aspect of diversity. We champion a universally-accessible campus community that supports the holistic advancement of individuals with disabilities. The DRC is more than just accommodations.

8 ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2018 Taylour Marks / Alligator StaffChenetrice Simpson, 19, laughs while sitting in Graham Hall. Simpson did not sign up for the Black Cultural Living Learning Community, but has become close with her roommate, Orchid Thomas, who did sign up for the community. Taylour Marks / Alligator StaffUF opened the Black Cultural Living Learning Community in Fall 2017. A bulletin board pictured greets students in the Graham Hall lobby.


ment in Graham Hall at the Black Cultural Living Learning Community. One night around Winter Break, Nevy and two of her friends talked in the halls lobby. Soon the group of three grew to 10 friends laughing and debating rap music, sparked by one of the residents saying Young Thug is the best rapper out. Half the crowd jeered, saying it wasnt true, while the others argued in Young Thugs defense. Nevy said they agreed to disagree but she still thinks Kendrick Lamar is the best. I dont think that would happen anywhere else, Nevy said. In Graham, people actually stop and talk to you. UF has 17 Living Learning Communities, which are residence halls that bring together students with similar interests. The Black Cultural Living Learning Community holds occasional events, family dinners and decorates bulletins to promote black culture and history. By November, Nevy thought of the residence hall as home. As she ate a family dinner of bolognese pasta, breadsticks and salad with a dozen of her peers, her resident assistants and graduate hall director talked about building a family. Still, Nevys favorite memories are the spontaneous laughs over black Twitter memes with friends in the hall. Nevy is one of the 13 community residents who is also in the AIM program. But other AIM students who live in the area didnt opt-in to the community. AIM requires its students to live together during Summer B, but many stay in the same residence hall in Fall and Spring. This year, the program placed 159 students in the Graham Area. Ninety-two AIM students were placed in Graham Hall, the same building that houses the Black Cultural Living Learning Community, said Mary Jordan, Housing and Residence Education assistant director. Although the black cultural community only consists of the 52 residents who registered for it, any student who lives in the hall can participate in events, she said. Chenetrice Simpson, a UF African American studies and criminology and law freshman, said she didnt want to feel like a test run to see if the community would be successful. Simpson, an AIM student, did not sign up for the black cultural community. I dont wanna feel like Im some kind of experiment, the 19-year-old said. Housing and Residence Education suggests residential areas for AIM students depending on the areas resources and the amount of students, Jordan said. For the previous two academic years, AIM students stayed in the Yulee Area. Next year, theyll be in the Murphree Area. leah Browdy said she was concerned AIM students would feel obligated to be a part of the Black Cultural Living Learning Community. She said she thinks Housing Residence and Education considered AIMs large minority population when it decided where to put students. I do think that it wasnt a coincidence that Housing suggested Graham, Browdy said. Orchid Thomas, a UF advertising freshman and Simpsons roommate, said the halls sense of community comes from the relationships students made with each other, mainly through AIM. Growing up in an Afro-Caribbean household, Thomas didnt always feel connected to African American culture. The 20-year-old signed up for the Black Cultural Living Learning Community to bridge that gap. She said she expected a space where people can celebrate black culture, but the community wasnt effective. The Black Cultural Living Learning Community was a step in the right direction, but upholding diversity takes more effort than labelling a residential space as black, Thomas said. She said the community and its events, like seminars on natural hair in the workplace, are promoted to residents, but black culture itself should be showcased to the rest of the university. Still, she said she has faith in the community. It dont seem like its a part of UF, almost, Thomas said. Its like some little project in the background. Jada Cameron, a 19-year-old UF architecture freshman and Nevys roommate, didnt realize she lived in the Black Cultural Living Learning Community when she moved into Graham in Fall. Cameron, who is black, knew the community existed but didnt sign herself up, she said. When Cameron found out she was living in the community, she was surprised she thought the community would be more noticeable, especially as the only Living Learning Community dedicated to racial identity. We live in a predominately white school, so I thought thered be more of an effort to expand black culture, she said. Mackintosh Joachim, an 18-year-old psychology and womens studies freshman and Student Government senator, said he initially wasnt sure where he belonged on campus. student, Joachim decided to opt into the community. come and go. After class, they meet in one of their residence hall rooms to catch up and do homework, but they mainly play video games like Injustice and Fortnite. We trust each other, and we created this wonderful friendship that I think no one else on campus has, Joachim said. When Joachim visited a friend at the PreHealth Living Learning Community in North Hall, the silence was deafening. Around 6 p.m., the halls were quiet, and students passing each other in the hallway rarely stopped to say hello. The energy is different at Graham, he said. Even Trusler, another residence hall in the Graham Area, is quiet in comparison. The number of students who decide to room in the community next year is unknown until May, but Joachim hopes more black students take advantage of it not because they feel forced to, but because they willingly sign up. ing Learning Community when he feels UFs promise of diversity and inclusion only goes skin deep. He said the family hes gained from the community inspired him to be vocal about black students concerns, like whether Grahams residents would be safe when white nationalist Richard Spencer came to speak at UF in October. Here at UF, they have a culture of you matter, we care, he said. To be honest, I dont see it. Nevy hesitated before answering whether she feels safe at UF. Although she feels protected as a student, she cannot say the same as an African American. For students of color, safety is relative. I always have to have a guard up because I know that there are forces against me, there are stereotypes against me, she said. When Spencer came to UF, most of the communitys residents left campus. The few doors that day. But Nevy and her roommate, who couldnt get a ride home, were forced to stay in Graham. After shutting the blinds and turning off the lights, they sat down to study, straining to see under lamp light. They bunkered down like they were waiting for a hurricane. They didnt even talk to each other. As Cameron studied for What Is The Good Life and Nevy watched the Facebook livestream of protesters, they wondered if white nationalists would come barreling down to the black cultural area. We didnt really want to see what was going on outside. We didnt want to see if it would come closer to us on campus, Nevy said. But there is comfort in people who know her fears and feel them too, she said. Students like Cameron and Nevy want to live somewhere with people in their corner, with people who always have their back. The community holds a special place in Nevys heart. But she doesnt want UF to simply slap a label on the community and use it for advertising without putting in work. She wants the university to do more than hold the occasional seminar. She wants UF to add meaning behind the name.

10 ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2018By Rachel ChangAlligator Contributing WriterWithin seconds, a spinning log sent Drew Hendry plunging into the water beneath him ruining his chances at completing the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course. The Broken Pipes obstacle, made up of two spinning logs and a platform in between, ended his run on the ninth season of the show. But the UF alumnus has spent the last year training for a third run. Tonight, hell try to prove his ninja skills for the third time as he comof the NBC shows 10th season, which will premiere at 9 p.m. May 30. If he makes the cut, he could ultimately compete against athletes nationwide and win a $1 million prize. You have one shot, and you make one mistake and youre done, he said. Preparing for that and not letting it get you down is probably one of the biggest things that Ive learned. Hendry, a Miami resident who graduated with a bachelors degree in business administration in 2005 tried out for the shows seventh season in 2015. He wasnt picked, but he helped out as an obstacle tester, meaning he tried the obstacle course before the actual competitors. 2016 on a qualifying round for the eighth season of the show. He he lost his grip halfway on a telephone-pole-sized cylinder called To prepare, Hendry said he Cutler Bay, Florida, at Ninja Lounge and at DNA Fitness in Miami. Adam Robbins, owner of DNA Fitness, said Hendry has been working on functional training, which is similar to CrossFit, since January. Robbins said Hendry particitimes a week and then has one-onone personal sessions two times a week. Ive trained, he said. In addition to training for American Ninja Warrior, Hendry works as an inventory replenishment director in a tree nursery and takes care of his 1-year-old daughter with his wife. His daughter, Violet, was born six weeks early, last year. As Hendrys pregnant wife watched from the sidelines during the 2017 qualihome and became parents. We joke that she was born premature because she heard all the noise and excitement going on and wanted to come out, he said. With his daughter in attendance goal for season 10 is to make it to gas.UF alumnus to compete on American Ninja Warrior tonightCourtesy to The AlligatorUF alumnus Drew Hendry swings through the Floating Steps Warrior season nine. By Elliott NasbyAlligator Staff WriterJarrod Rodriguez wanted to know why hecklers drowning out Richard Spencers speech at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts werent asked to leave. Wouldnt they have been kicked out? he asked David Parrott, UFs vice president for student affairs. Rodriguez wanted to understand how chants from counter-protesters in the audience didnt infringe on Spencers First Amendment right to speak freely in October. The 18-year-old UF business management freshman was one of about 30 students who came to Pugh Hall Campus Conversations, an event that aimed to get students debating their stances on mental health, free speech zones and gun control. Parhad a chance to discuss the topics in small groups. sions of whether to ask people to leave or not are subjective. Because Spencer continued speaking, he was never totally silenced. Student fellows for the Bob Graham Center for Public Service decided to model the conversation after a conference at Harvard University, where more than 60 student ambassadors from 30 universities met to talk about issues affecting their college campuses and how to effectively engage with people who have different opinions, said Brett Steinfeld, a fellow who helped organize the event. One of the things Im really interested in is why the campus seems so divided, the UF political science sophomore said. During the event, participants got sample opinions as starting points for discussion. They read things like, Free Speech Zones are too disruptive. or Teachers should be armed. However, rather than sparking heated debate, the crowd generally agreed on most issues. More often, students asked questions of Parrott than they did challenge one another. Bob Graham fellow Sara Henley night unfolded but would try to improve the event next time by inviting organizations that clearly do have different opinions. As a pilot program you never know how its going to go, the 20-year-old UF public health and business management sophomore said. @_ElohEl enasby@alligator.orgGraham Center hosts conversation on controversial topics By Wyatt SchreiberAlligator Contributing WriterAt just 18 years old, Briana Berger has tion and coded an Android app. Her goal is to change the world through computer code. The F.W. Buchholz High School seniors impressive resume has led her to be named one of 150 Coca-Cola Scholars nationwide out of more than 90,000 applicants, according to the companys website. She learned she made the list and got a $20,000 scholarship Feb. 27. Anything is possible as long as you set your mind to it, and people are more than willing to help you get there, she said. In October, Berger applied for the CocaCola Scholars Foundation, which is in its 30th listing her activities inside and outside of school, athletics and community service. After writing four essays, she went to Atlanta, where she was interviewed by a panel of three judges. On April 18, the scholars will Weekend, where they will be honored. She plans to study computer science when she attends Stanford University this fall. She wants to become the CEO of her own company and publish a couple books after she graduates college. So far, she has used her coding skills to create a free Android app, SleepBeep, that helps stop drivers from falling asleep by taking logic tests to measure their level of tiredness. Berger is also the president of the Buchholz High School Robotics Team and president of the Math Honors Society. Since she transferred from Florida Virtual School to Buchholz as a sophomore in 2016, she has founded two organizations. Shes the CEO of coderGirls, an interna40 chapters in 10 countries that reaches out to empower and educate girls in computer science. She also created a local organization called SeniorTechNet which helps educate senior citizens about technology. Kathleen Albritton, Bergers sophomore chemistry honors teacher, said Berger excelled in class, winning Albrittons chemistry award in 2016. Despite being a quiet student, whenever Berger asked a question, it was carefully thought out. It kept Albritton on her toes, she said. Im just so proud of her as a student and as a young lady, Albritton said. Shes just The Associated PressMENLO PARK, Calif. Over two days of questioning in Congress, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed he didnt know key details of a 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission that requires Facebook to protect user privacy. With congressional hearings over and no immediate momentum behind calls for regulation, the biggest hammer still hanging over Facebook in the U.S. is a fresh FTC investigation. The probe follows revelations millions of Facebook users. Facebook also faces inquiries in Europe. The 2011 agreement bound Facebook to a 20-year privacy commitment, and any violations of that pact could cost Facebook a ton dards. If Zuckerbergs testimony before Congress is any indication, the company might have something to worry about. Zuckerberg repeatedly assured lawmakers Tuesday and Wednesday that he believes Facebook is in compliance with that factual questions about the consent decree. Congresswoman, I dont remember if under questioning by Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette on Wednesday. Youre the CEO of the company, you entered into a consent decree and you dont she asked. She then pointed out that the FTC In response to questioning by Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, Zuckerberg acknowledged: Im not familiar with all of the things the FTC said. Zuckerberg also faced several questions from lawmakers about how long it takes for Facebook to delete user data from its systems. He didnt know. The 2011 consent decree capped years of Facebook privacy mishaps, many of which revolved around its early attempts to follow users and their friends around the web. Any violations of the 2011 agreement could subtion per user per day. To put that in context, Facebook could theoretically owe $8 billion for one single day of a violation affecting all of its American users. The current FTC investigation will look at whether Facebook engaged in unfair acts that cause substantial injury to consumers.Gainesville highschooler named Coca-Cola Scholar Facebook privacy commitments

Both tournaments begin today and end Sunday.Coach Bryan Shelton and the Florida men's tennis team match of the season tonight at 5 against Alabama. Florida is 14-8 overall and 8-3 in the SEC.BASEBALLBy Justin AhlumSports WriterAt the beginning of the season, hits were harder to come by for Austin Langworthy than on-campus parking is for UF students. After Floridas second weekend series of the season against Miami in late February, nothing was going right for the Gators sophomore. He posted an abysmal .133 batting avgames. However, he wasnt displeased with his plate appearances. I feel like I had a lot of quality at-bats early and just didnt have a lot of luck, Langworthy said on Thursday. But since that series, the UF outand the Gators (29-6, 9-3 SEC) head into a weekend series against Missouri (24-9, 6-6 SEC) beginning tonight at 6:30 at McKethan Stadium. I knew at some point the tides would turn, the hits would start falling, Langworthy said. And thats what has happened. Hes right. Since Floridas series against the Hurricanes, Langworthy has trended upward in the box. creased his batting average from .192 on March 9 to .304 heading into this weekend. Hes also sporting a .418 on-base percentage and is one of only three Florida players who has a plus-.300 average with more than 10 at-bats. Langworthy is also boasting a seven-game hitting streak and has But even with the accolades to this point of the season, he said there hasnt been any change to how he approaches his trips to the box. This is a very hard game, Langworthy said. Sometimes its not gonna go your way and thats how it was early for me. And for his coach, the recent success for Langworthy doesnt come as a surprise. It was just a matter of time to get into a rhythm and see the ball a little bit better, coach Kevin OSullivan said of Langworthy. But Im cerLangworthy breaking out of slump ahead of Missouri seriesWe at alligatorSports published an article on Monday about Florida defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis violating three terms of his pre-trial intervention agreement for his involvement in a credit card scandal during the summer of 2017. Just to recap for those that missed it: Davis hasnt done any community service hours, he still owes money for court costs and he was caught marijuana on March 12. still requested he continue with the program, as if everything that had happened shouldnt and doesnt warrant any major consequences. But it seems like that small detail has been drowned out by the attention-grabbing idea that Davis committed a heinous crime and should no longer be allowed on the team. Cries on message boards called for the redshirt junior to be cut by coach Mullen. Im here to say all of that is one big overreaction. Davis should receive punishment, but not as extreme as being kicked off UFs roster. It starts with looking at what exactly happened. The marijuana incident was a major slip-up. Possessing it is a crime in the state of Florida, as is smoking it. It also breaks NCAA regulations, not to mention team rules. Former players like Treon Harris and Mark Thompson were suspended in the past for various violations involving the drug. While Davis is in a bind due to the pretrial intervention, lets be honest: Is it really that bad? I know he is in a situation where he cant afford to mess up as bad as he did, but the crime isnt as terrible as what people want the punishment to permit.Davis deserves another opportunity to make up for recent violationsJakes on a Plane / Opinion Jake Dreilingertwitter: @DreilingerJakeSEE COLUMN, PAGE 20 MEN'S BASKETBALLBy Andrew HuangSports Writer The following is a list of key bullet points from the UF mens basketball teams 201718 resume: A third straight 20-win season that broke its own record with eight teams qualifying for the NCAA Tournament this year An NCAA-best six wins over ranked opponents But Mike White is still hungry for more. As you look back on the season theres a few regrets, White said on Wednesday, head coach. But there was a lot of positivity, too. And there is plenty of uncertainty heading into the 2018-19 season. All-SEC point guard Chris Chiozza, leading rebounder Egor Koulechov and former defensive centerpiece John Egbunu are all gone. Leading scorer Jalen Hudson could join them as well. He declared for the NBA draft on March 27 but did not sign with an agent, meaning he still has the option to return to UF. White and Hudson still keep in regular contact as well. Hes here and going through workouts every day, White said of the 6-foot-6 shooting guard. Regardless of what happens with Hudson, White feels good about the other backcourt players he has to work with. White expects KeVaughn Allen and Mike Okauru to battle for the starting point guard spot. Mike Okauru and KeVaughn Allen will tell you its theirs to lose, White said. That should be their mentality. He didnt rule out incoming freshman Andrew Nembhard either.
