Both Jackson and Jones graduated with their doctorates in human-centric computing from the Wertheim College of Engineering. They said they are eager to encourage other women to pursue science, technology, engineering and math majors as well. We have to have more role models for girls, Jones said. According to a report from the U.S. Department of Commerce, women made up around 47 percent the workforce in 2017. Only 25 percent of employed women held STEM positions. The same report also noted that while men and women make up around the same amount of all college degree holders, only 30 percent of all STEM degrees are held by women. Jones and Jackson agreed the best way to motivate the next generation of women to major in STEM degrees is through representation and encouragement. You rarely see women in STEM on TV, said Jones. If you do, then theyre the stereotypical nerds, but theres no one way to be a woman in STEM. Jackson said she believes a love for engineering and science should be nourished, and she had advice to share with other women interested in technology. You are just as smart as everyone else in the room, and you deserve to be there, Jackson said. Dont be afraid. Dont feel like just because you may not be the majority in the class that you cant be successful at it. Both Jones and Jackson received their masters degrees from Clemson University. Jackson received her masters degree in industrial engineering, while Jones got hers in computer engineering. They had both already broken into the world of STEM careers before receiving their doctorates. Jones currently works as a research scientist for the Navy. Jackson began working full time in January.

First African American women earn PhD from CISE departmentBy Angela DiMicheleAlligator Staff WriterIn the aftermath of the graduation ceremony that became national news, UF President Kent Fuchs is seeking help from students on how to rethink future commencements. Fuchs said in a video he posted on Twitter on May 8 that 22 students were rushed off stage at the commencement ceremony May 5 by an as-of-yet unnamed marshal. The employee has since been placed on paid administrative leave, UF spokesperson Margot Winick said. Fuchs addressed the incident that occurred at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences graduation at the OConnell Center by tweeting apologies personally and on behalf of UF on May 6. The statement said the marshal acted inappropriately aggressive in rushing students across the stage. Mackintosh Joachim, an 18-year-old UF psychology and womens studies sophomore, said the initial online apology was halfhearted and did not achieve any results. Joachim posted the video of the incident taken by UF public health student Tasha Raymond, 21. Winick wrote in an email May 8 that UF is reviewing the incident and will not identify the marshal nor have further comment while under review. I dont think its a fair punishment because he was clearly targeting black students, Joachim said. I think that they are trying to protect him because they know what he did was wrong. Nafeesah Attah, 20, is one of three black students who were international studies graduate said she was going to perform a historic dance from her sorority called a duck walk waving your arms up and squatting while stomping your feet at the ceremony before the marshal interfered. Attah said members of the sorority, Delta Sigma Theta, have done the dance at previous UF graduations and that other stuping but were not handled in the same manner. Although I appreciate the apology from (Fuchs), I think its nitely hope the UF administration holds the person accountable.UF graduation incident prompts commencement reform SEE GRAD, PAGE 4Courtesy of Zachariah ChouUF has not yet revealed the identity of the graduation marshal who shoved 22 students off stage during a commencement ceremony on May 5.

The grant will be used to fund eight to 15 startups per year and create 75 to 100 new jobs in Gainesville, IPDC Director Karl Zawoy said. Zawoy said the center will work with entrepreneurs to determine if their discoveries, encompassing information technology, medical devices, biotechnology, manufacturing technology and consumer products, have commercial potential. The center is located in the Gainesville Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at 2153 SE Hawthorne Road #101. Zawoy said the center is interested in working with anyone who has a promising idea or product. The goal is to help the companies in whatever stage theyre at to get to the next stage, so that they are able to be successful, grow and create new jobs in the area, Zawoy said. Were building a network of investors who potentially could provide anything from investing in the company to maybe even securing some loans. Zawoy, who has been at Santa Fe since April, has almost 30 years of experience his experience in transferring technology from the laboratory to the market is part initiative.

NEWS AROUND THE WORLD55 dead in Gaza protests as Israel celebrates US Embassy move GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip In a jarring contrast, Israeli forces shot and killed at least 55 Palestinians and wounded more than 1,200 during mass protests Monday along the Gaza border, while just a few miles away Israel and the U.S. held a festive inauguration ceremony for the new American Embassy in contested Jerusalem. It was by far the deadliest day of cross-border violence since a devastating 2014 war between Israel and Gazas Hamas rulers, and further dimmed the already bleak prospects for President Donald Trumps hoped-for peace plan. Throughout the day, Gaza protesters set tires ablaze, sending thick plumes of black smoke into the air, and hurled firebombs and stones toward Israeli troops across the border. The Israeli military, which has come under international criticism for using excessive force against unarmed protesters, said Hamas tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests and released video of protesters ripping away parts of the barbed-wire border fence. Mondays protests culminated more than a month of weekly demonstrations aimed at breaking a crippling Israeli-Egyptian border blockade. But the U.S. Embassy move, bitterly opposed by the Palestinians, added further fuel. Court says states can OK sports betting WASHINGTON The Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for states coast to coast to legalize betting on sports, breaking a longtime ban and creating a potential financial boon for states and the gambling industry. The first bets could be placed within weeks. Despite opposition from the major sports leagues and the Trump administration, the high court struck down a federal law that had barred betting on football, basketball, baseball and other sports in most states. States that want to take advantage of the ruling now will generally have to pass legislation to allow sports books to open. Some, including New Jersey, which brought the case to the Supreme Court, have a head start.

Jeffrey DeLong, a resident of Clermont, Florida, was traveling south on U.S. Highway 441 with another passenger when the incident occurred at 12:54 p.m., according to a press release from Florida Highway Patrol. At the intersection of CR 234, DeLong pulled across the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 441 traveling east from the eastbound stop sign on CR 234. He was driving a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle with no helmet, according to the release.

If youve been to a graduation, thats, like, something you know, Mazon, 23, said. For that big guy to put his hands on graduating students after they put in so much work, to not also make UF more prestigious it was complete negligence. Fuchs spoke at a Faculty Senate meeting last Thursday afternoon and outlined his plans to create a task force to rethink future ceremonies. Student Body President Ian Green in the initiative along with Vice President Dave Parrott. I want to be thinking outside the box and making sure its truly a celebration with the students in mind, Green said. shows that we have some challenges at UF that we need to work on together. Fuchs said the task force being assembled is partly because of May 5s graduation and to create ways that would make the ceremonies more appropriate for the students of today. He said he would like to see commencement in December and May as a ceremony for all graduating students inside He proposed that colleges and departments hold their own ceremonies that are caand needs, whether they be more formal or more celebratory. I just believe that in (the current) commencement ceremonies, were doing too much, Fuchs said at the meeting. Were trying to accomplish a university-wide commencement ceremony with all the pomp and circumstance around that. Fuchs said UF would send out a campus-wide notice to seek students input and any ideas theyd like to suggest. @angdimi adimichele@alligator.orgGRAD, from pg. 1Fuchs asked for input fessional advisors and mentors who experts are there to offer help with things like understanding how to form a company and create a business plan, Zawoy said. For the Gainesville economy, he said the center will create eight to 15 startups per year and use the services and support networks in the community surrounding the growing businesses. It will offer online classes and resources for company CEOs and principals to learn how to create business plans and investor presentations. A startup company that has a rapid growth phase may double in size in the hiring people who are entrepreneurs who are looking to do the next big thing, and startups typically need to hire people quickly. Zawoy said the IPDC will have lunch and learn opportunities, training events and guest speakers to connect startup companies with the mentors in the community. He plans to start a social media campaign to provide the community with information about the center. out who needs help. UFs Innovate and the Hub is one partner of the IPDC. UF Innovate Director of Incubation Services Mark Long said the partnership will allow the IPDC access to resources and programs for community-based startups. UF Innovate and the Hub already the university-based companies, and the Innovative Product Development Center really expands that to include community startups, Long said. The combination of the IPDC and the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Gainesville, Long said. startup companies is the network that they can access for support, advice, direction, capital and experience, Long said. Im only as good as the people I know. Dug Jones, associate vice president for economic development at Santa Fe, said the idea for the IPDC resulted from a lack of support for entrepreneurs and UF and who may not have business experience in the community. Thats the beauty of it, Jones said. When this works the way we expect it to, it ultimately gets a product to the market that people want. @angdimi adimichele@alligator.orgSANTA FE, from pg. 1Zawoy predicted eight to 15 startups a yearCourtesy of Karl Zawoy Santa Fes new Innovative Product Development Center will be located in the Gainesville Technology and Entrepreneurship Center.

By Dana CassidyAlligator Staff WriterUF researchers have developed an antitheft device called the Skim Reaper to reduce incidents of stolen credit card information. The device functions as a mock credit card. It was invented to prevent skimming, which involves stealing card information by using a device planted on common card readers. The Skim Reaper displays a warning on a small device attached via wire if the reader has a skimmer. Under Professor Patrick Traynor, UF doctoral students Christian Peeters and Nolen Scaife developed the device at the Florida Institute for Cyber Security. They partnered with New York Police to conduct City. UF researchers plan on launching a model for public use within six to nine months. Skimming is a multibillion dollar business, Scaife said. We wanted to build a device with the power to detect (card skimming) in the hands of consumers. Card skimming has become a problem in Gainesville, said Financial Crimes Detective Ryan McCazzio of Gainesville Police. He said GPD has found skimmers inserted into gas pumps throughout the city and county. UF researchers plan on launching a model for public use within six to nine months. GPD has requested a prototype of the Skim Reaper for a demonstration. The more people who know about it, the better off well be, McCazzio said. @danacassidy_ UF researchers develop Skim Reaper, public use to comeCourtesy of Nolen ScaifeThe Skim Reaper essentially functions as a mock credit card. The user inserts it into a suspect scanner and, if tainted, the card signals a warning.

Giving a small wave, it finally hit him that his last season in a Florida baseball jersey would soon come to an end. My best decision was coming to this school, Schwarz said in an interview posted on Twitter. Im so happy I came here.

Kara Schwarz and Pamela Horvath, the mothers of the pair, threw out the ritual first pitches as Senior Day fell on Mothers Day. Although the Gators dropped their series finale to Georgia on Sunday, coach Kevin OSullivan couldnt help but reflect on the careers of his seniors. It can be a bit emotional, OSullivan said in a release. You spend four years with the seniors, and you recruit them two to three years out. Nick and JJ are from my hometown, so Ive known them for a long time. Schwarz had a stellar career while at Florida. He now holds the record for most games started at UF with 260, although he saw a significant drop in numbers in his sophomore and junior campaigns. He came out strong with a .332 batting average in his freshman year and has a .333 average thus far in his senior season. Its pretty sweet, Schwarz said when asked about how he raised his average by almost 50 points in the last month. I feel like at this time of year Im pretty locked in.

Here, gambling can range from small, friendly cash wagers to untraceable online betting with cryptocurrencies and updating browsers. But maybe this subterranean world of illegal sports betting will soon become a thing of the past thanks to the decision reached by the Supreme Court in Murphy v. The National Collegiate Athletic Association on Monday. In a 6-3 ruling, the court determined that the legalization of sports gambling will be up to the states to decide for themselves, striking down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) passed in 1992. The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make, Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the court majority. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each state is free to act on its own. This is exciting news for all states not called Nevada which became the only state to allow single-game wagering after the 1992 law was passed.

But he took off down the runway on his on the belief that somehow he would get it done. I just let the sand come to me, the sophomore said in a video posted to Twitter. His return to competition was in a which ended in a new school record for the Gators, a new SEC Championships record and the second-fastest time in collegiate history. He clocked a time of 13.15 to help the men take their third SEC Outdoors title under Mike Holloway. We dont really talk about points and talk about titles. We just challenge everybody to come in and do their job, Mike Holloway said in an SEC Network broadcast. From the moment we got on the plane in Gainesville, everybodys been very focused and very workman-like, and everybodys been business. The 10th-year head coach challenged his teams to believe in him and in themselves the second they landed in Knoxville, Tennessee, and to trust that the marks and times would eventually come. And it ended in just the fourth sweep of SECs by a program since 1991. I just trusted them to believe in who we are and how we do things, Mike Holloway said. Dont worry about the score.

For a city like Gainesville, where gambling occurs side-by-side with collegiate athletics, government regulation can mean the end of student seeded corruption that may or may not already exist. And for states like New Jersey, whose casinos have struggled to compete with those in surrounding markets, legalization of sports betting means positive economic impact for casinos as well as meaningful tax revenue for the state itself. Of course there are those in support of PASPA, like former New Jersey senator and former New York Knick Bill Bradley, who argued that allowing open betting on games jeopardizes the integrity of American sports. But regardless of federal regulation of sports gambling, it will continue to happen legally in Nevada and illegally in every other state. So, I pose this question to those with similar convictions as Bradley: Does federal restriction of gambling really give sports more integrity, or should we allow Americans to gamble with more integrity?
