By Gillian SweeneyAlligator Staff WriterWith all the water thats been pouring from the sky, its a wonder that UFs sprinklers never stop spitting. As of May 22, Gainesville has received 5.38 inches of rain throughout the month. This is 1.5 inches above average. Even with all of this rain, UF keeps the sprinklers running. Occasionally, the sprinklers even work with the rain to keep the grass wet. Wasteful, is the word Joean Cho, a UF psychology junior, used to describe UFs practice of watering the grass on campus while its raining. rector Matt Williams offered an explanation on why running the sprinklers in the rain is actually a sustainable practice. The campus is unique in that it has its own in-house waste water treatment plant, Williams said. For years, the plant had been cleaning the waste water, which comes from the sinks and toilets on campus. pression of soil, Williams said. Over the years, this treatment method turned that small depression into the Lake Alice we know today. That system was then changed to push treated water into injection wells, Williams said. Most wells pull water out of the ground, but these wells push it deep underground. Williams said this method is safe, and it is used throughout the state. The school later looked into using this water for irrigation, Williams said. At the time, the irrigation system was a major sink for water. This system was changed about 10 years ago to use the reclaimed water for the sprinklers the water used for irrigation on campus comes from the reclaimed water system. When the tank becomes too full, the irrigation system runs, even if its raining, Williams said. This is in addition to scheduled watering. The amount of water in the tank is dependent on the number of students on campus using sinks, showers and toilets, Williams said. This means the number of times the sprinklers come on can change on a weekly basis. Even if it continues raining for another week, you might actually see the sprinklers come on in the rain, Williams said. @gilliangsweeney email@example.comAlligator Contributing Writer hardships that come with home ownership, he said one problem has been consistent.

Carnevale said the beetles will come in a container complete with a road snack of air potato leaves and an information sheet on how to properly release them at residences. The idea was brought to her team when quested that the air potato leaf beetles be ered by the UF-associated Hayslip Biological Control Research and Containment Laboratory.

There probably needs to be more implementation for bicycle safety, Boada said. Boada may get her wish. In honor of National Bike Month, Gainesville Their goal was to highlight the benMayor Lauren Poe, along with Gainesville City Commissioners, led the three-mile bike ride. Poe said about 100 residents of all ages attended the event. Eventually, we want to have a completely interconnected grid of multi-use trails and paths that are off the main road network, Poe said. The route they followed is part of a continuous urban trail system an interconnected group of bike paths. The city is also working on an for cyclists. There has been progress made to the trails and existing ideas, but there will never be a deadline, Poe said. As the city changes, these paths will be added to. After the bike ride, everyone gathered around the tents to talk to Poe and the commissioners. Bike checks, bike lights and information on bicycle safety were also available at the event. I look forward to this every year, Poe said. I think what happens is people come here for the biking, but they end up talking about a lot of other things that they want to see for the city.

Disney estimated Sunday that Solo will gross $101 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, a figure below even the opening weekends of the much-derided Star Wars prequels. Last week, forecasts ran as high as $150 million for the four-day haul of Solo. Overseas ticket sales were even worse. Solo, starring Alden Ehrenreich in the role made iconic by Harrison Ford, grossed $65 million internationally in its opening weekend, including a paltry $10.1 million in China. Of course we would have hoped for this to be a bit bigger, said Dave Hollis, Disneys distribution chief. Were encouraged by the response that people have had to the film. It got a good CinemaScore (A-minus). The exits are very encouraging.

TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2018 ALLIGATOR 3 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Subtropical Storm Alberto rumbled inland Monday after its Memorial Day strike on the Gulf Coast, driving holiday beachgoers away amid heavy rains that raised South. Forecasters warned that heavy downpours from the vast storm system are increasing the potential for north Florida, much of Alabama and large areas of Georgia and elsewhere around the Southeast. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Alberto was centered about 7 p.m. Monday near the community of DeFuniak Springs in the Florida Panhandle after its Monday afternoon landfall nearby. With maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph), Alberto was crawling north at 10 mph (17 kph) as it began taking aim at the Southeast. Authorities did not immediately attribute any deaths or injuries directly to Alberto. But in North Carolina, a television news anchor and a photojournalist were killed Monday when a tree that had been uprooted from rain-soaked ground toppled on a TV vehicle as the two reported on severe weather on the fringes of the huge system, hundreds of miles (kilometers) from Albertos center. More rain is on the way. Between four and eight inches (10-25 centimeters) of rain could soak the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, and western Georgia before the storm moves on. Isolated deluges of 12 inches (30 centimeters) also are possible. Forecasters said Alberto could then become a subtropical depression during the night before spreading rains Tuesday over the Tennessee Valley and later in the week around the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region. Meanwhile, potentially lifethreatening rough surf and rip currents continued on the northern Gulf Coast after Alberto rolled up big waves and tides along the coast. the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned as Alberto disrupted long holiday weekend plans for millions. The storm forced some Memorial Day tributes to be canceled across Floridas Panhandle. Safety was the priority, but the decision was still a heartbreaker, said Tom Rice, a 29-year-old Army veteran who leads the organizations that had planned a ceremony Monday at Beal Memorial Cemetery in Fort Walton Beach. Some stragglers still made their way through the rain to pay tribute at the cemeterys Veterans Tribute Tower, however. Rice said Amerion the graves of all 1,700 veterans buried in the cemetery. told the Northwest Florida Daily News as wind whipped a massive whats important. Along the Florida Panhandle, tourists vowed Alberto wouldnt dampen their vacations. Jason Powell sought to keep his children entertained with movies and TV until Alberto blows past his pristine Florida vacation spot. So far weve seen a lot of wind and the ocean is really high, covering up the entire beach, Powell said. Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October. They stocked up on groceries and settled in for card games. Weve never seen one before and were here celebrating a friends 20th birthday, Rhumes told the Daily News. So how often can you say you rode a storm out? Elsewhere, Floridas Division of Emergency Management said, about 2,600 customers were without power for a time in northwestern Florida on Monday. As Albertos center heads inland it is being deprived of the warm waters that fuel tropical weather systems, causing it to weaken, forecasters said. In coming hours it was expected to become a subtropical depression. A subtropical storm has a less Taylour Marks / Alligator StaffFormer City Commissioner Randy Wells shakes the hand of a young bicyclist, William, 5, during Saturdays Ride with Your Mayor and Commissioners bike riding event. tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. And some of its rain bands spread hundreds of miles (kilometers) away from the core of the storm. Elsewhere, the North Carolina Highway Patrol said, a large tree toppled on a news television vehicle Monday near Tryon, North Carolina. WYFF-TV of Greenville, South Carolina, said a news anchor, Mike McCormick, and photojournalist, Aaron Smeltzer, with that station were both killed. McCormick and Smeltzer had just interviewed Tryon Fire Chief Geoffrey Tennant as they covered storms in North Carolina. Ten minutes later we get the call and it was them, Tennant said at a news conference, his voice cracking. Tennant did not directly blame the up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) of rain that fell Monday from the fringes of Alberto for the deaths. He said the roots of a large tree that toppled on the vehicle came loose from ground saturated by a weeks worth of earlier rain. The men died instantly, their TV vehicles engine still running, Tennant said. fatalities in the country in 2016, according to the Department of Transportation and the National tration. The City Commission has adopted a Vision Zero policy, Gainesville City Commissioner Adrian Hayes-Santos said. The goal of the policy is to eliminate injuries and fatalities on the roads. The Vision Zero policy will be implemented in 2018, according to the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Boards meeting minutes. Megan Wallrich, a 31-year-old wildlife biologist, said she appreciated the message behind Mayor Poes bike event, but she also wants to see more come from it. There is a huge community here for cyclists, she said. Hopefully that prompts them to also make changes in the future.BIKES, from pg. 1Bike safety was stressed at the event

He hasnt noticed the beetles eating any of the other plants on his property. So far they havent eaten anything but air potatoes, Shreve said. We have some stuff that looks just like air potatoes or (has a) very similar leaf structure, but they wont touch it. Carnevale said the beetles have been tested to ensure they only consume the air potato vine. Even though the vine has been an ongoing problem across the state, it does not stop people from having fun with them. Carnevale described air potato roundlike Alachua as outreach events. They were similar to Easter egg hunts with prizes for biggest, smallest and most unusually shaped air potatoes. Within two years of the beetles being offered to residents and land managers in Polk County, the air potato vine was no longer one of the top problem species in the area, Carnevale said. The site we did this at a couple of times didnt have any air potatoes left, Carnevale said. We couldnt do (air potato roundups) because the beetles were so successful. To request beetles, Polk County residents may visit the Hayslip Biological Control Research and Containment Laboratorys website. A few forms must be authorized and then residents may pick up their own army of potato leaf beetles. The next delivery to the IFAS extension in Bartow will be June 6. Shreve said he was glad UF could help local governments to take strides in eradicating the invasive plant. This is a great example of academic institutions providing meaningful and actionable information, Shreve said. This is a muchneeded success story.BEETLES, from pg. 1A much-needed success story.

Editorial Column Appreciate where you are You are not wasting time by treating yourselfBeing a college student, professor or staff member can make for a demanding work day and stress. Beyond your to-do list, theres other duties you might have to tackle. Theres family life and friends. There are also other errands, chores or side hustles. Being in this environment can be like youre in an endless cycle of days in a pressure cooker. There might be a paper or lesson plan to write or prep, a quiz on Canvas or a day where two tests line up at once. Or theres those days that seem to be a neverending series of unfortunate events: the bus that drives by right as you get there, a jammed printer or a broken laptop. Needless to say, these events are draining. For me, taking time for myself comes with guilt. I beat myself up for taking a nap or reading mindless, reading important news, working on my portfolio or learning a new skill outside of the classroom. As a student, I feel pressure to constantly be at work: applying for scholarships, searching for internships, taking classes, working on extracurricular activities, updating resumes and staying on top of required classes, grades, career fairs and beyond. The same guilt can come with buying something beyond your list of needs. a book for fun, having a shopping day or simply doing nothing are just as important as work. These moments are where you learn who you are beyond work or school. They keep you fueled in a draining world where youre bombarded with countless assignments, sad headlines or issues in your personal life. Life is more than your title of student. Tasks that can be considered a waste of time could be the same thing that inspires a dream, new passion or career or something that propels your motivation or leads you on a path that eases stress. For me, there are days when Im lying in bed feeling unwell because of my chronic illness; I dont even leave bed. However, taking the time to rest allows me to take on a new week or a new semester at times when doctors tell me to stop. Even more, it gives me the space to think about ways to help other people. nally stop and step back outside the boundaries of work and school. Lying in a hospital bed, feeling like I was wasting time, was where I became even closer to words and stories. In the dingy, dim room with faint beeps and a trickling IV, I dreamed up my blog and book idea to raise awareness for my chronic illness. Getting sick has shown me more than anything the importance of the so-called wasting of time because it forces me to stop. This isnt to stay I dont still beat myself up every day. However, it has allowed me to be better. So the next time youre sitting on your dorm bed, having some fun or making a spur of the moment purchase and a haunting thought of your stress and to-dos trickles in, try to block it with the knowledge that you are still working just in other ways. Youre working on making memories, taking a needThat is not a waste of time. Sophie Feinberg is a UF journalism junior. Her column comes out Tuesday and Thursday.TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2018 www.alligator.org/opinions For many upperclassmen, spending the summer in Gainesville doesnt quite hold the allure it did as a freshman. However, many students are forced either through lack of internship funding or plain old rejection to spend the Summer semester in Gainesville and take a few classes rather than be unproductive, which, quite frankly, isnt the worst career move. The crucial if lies in how Gators make use of their time here. where their resumes and lives are lacking. Students should then pinpoint what local internships, jobs and volunteer opportunities can help them land a stellar internship next summer or post-grad. Even more so, Gators should enjoy their Here are a few suggestions for a well-rounded summer in the ville: -Strengthen your communications skills, bump up your purpose. -Look up more. Have you seen the trees in this city?! Gainesville is populated by some of the most beautiful vegetation in the state. You might spend an afternoon forest bathing with a friend or getting in some quality introspection. -Explore the environment around you. Your argument that Gainesville is tired and uninteresting is completely untrue if you fail to explore what lies in your backyard. Take a weekend to check out First Magnitude Brewing Company or Bolen Bluff Trail. There are far more natural attractions and local establishments than we could ever suggest. -Attend City Commission meetings or your local Republican National Committee or Democratic National Committee chapter meetings. The agendas for these meetings have tons of information on city planning, local politics and other Gainesville business. Youll learn more by attending these meetings than in weeks of Twitter scrolling. Also, taking part in and being informed of decisions that will affect your day-to-Root on local sports. The Gators softball and baseball playoffs have just begun. Head over to Alfred A. McKethan Stadium for the NCAA regional playoffs this weekend or organize a watch party for the Gator girls. In addition, check out any one of the multitudes of other area activities and clubs that exist in plain sight. -Utilize area swimming pools and recreation centers. Swimming and team sports are the best way to incorporate exercise into your routine, allowing participants to build strong friendships and disconnect from the virtual reality for a while. -Become a regular at a local coffee shop. Theres a reason munity quite like shared moments in a busy day. -Appreciate where you are. The phrase is clich, but the sentiment still holds weight. Far too little of us realize our you really can if you try to be a bit more cognizant of your surroundings and record whats going on in your life semiregularly. You are accomplishing far more than you know.

It doesnt get better when you apply lessons from the Hurt study, an authoritative on-scene study on motorcycle safety and mortality which analyzed data from motorcycle crashes. Take a quick look around the UF campus: know both students and youth aged 16 to 24 are overrepresented in fatal crashes. In the county that houses our campus, Alachua, the ratio of fatal to non-fatal crashes is only slightly lower than it is in Dade. Slow, as we might think it does. Scooter riders, remember that you are not safe either. Think about how many of you are not wearing without a license. Those characteristics are all overrepresented in motorcycle crashes. If you retreat to thinking that a 50-cubic-centimeter scooter isnt fast enough to be dangerous, consider also that even the cheap scooters cruise at 30 mph. The median crash speed in the Hurt study was 29.8 mph. There are tangible countermeasures we can implement to improve our odds of surto the Hurt study. Using them is shown to reduce injuries. These are things like wearing eyewear and using rigid protective boots and gloves. Helmet use cannot be overstressed. why we can feel safe on two wheels. We would be taking those risks in the presence of alternatives, speeding away at red lights. One of my reasons is a grudge against RTS buses, which have forced me to use Uber one too many times. I chose to live in a house that would offer me better quality of living and cheaper rent, but it is farther away and lacks reliable bus service. I choose to have breaking chauffeur services over that risk of bodily injury. Ive weighed the risks. I want to be the motorcyclist outside the RTS window, complete with a neon orange full face helmet and colorful clothing. Wearing black is dressing for your own funeral.

Motorcycles are dangerous I might buy oneColumn Its no secret that Rihannas Fenty Beauty line has been a huge success since its launch in September 2017. For many women, the cosmetics line reveal has been emotional. With 40 shades to choose from, Fenty has ushered in a new era of inclusivity and started a conversation about representation of diversity within the makeup industry. The product line, which has been named one of Time's Best Inventions of 2017, is just the latest example of Rihannas unfailing ability to innovate industries. But, I believe Fentys success could partly lie in the narrowness of the offerings rather than the depth. Fenty offers tons of shades within each product category, but the actual types of products offered is refreshingly slim. The business model of most makeup companies is to provide the customer with an overwhelming array of options that can be combined methodically to create an infinite number of different looks. Fenty doesnt do that. The products focus on creating beautiful skin, mimicking natural glow from the sun and creating a plump lip. The advertisements feature a gorgeous mix of different looking women, but they all feature a similar RiRi look. As an average non-beautyguru person, this makes the makeup experience easier for me. I dont have to be the artist; Rihanna already created the look for me. The small Fenty shelf at Sephora has relieved many cosmetics consumers of the anxious feeling we all face when we walk into an overstocked store. Forever 21 syndrome, if you will. As a collector, the game has changed. The small amount of lipstick shades empowers consumers to collect all 14 colors. Typically, no one aspires to own each of the hundreds of shades offered by cosmetics lines. Fenty has given makeup lovers a brand they can truly own. Fenty is one of the first companies, in any genre, that Ive seen which fights the consumerism mentality that each product must exist in thousands of flavors, shades, textures or smells. Honestly, do we need Limeade flavored Oreos? I think its time for us to have a conversation about choices. I highly encourage watching Barry Schwartzs TED Talk, The Paradox of Choice. He talks on something that I reference mentally all the time. The negative impact that having too many choices can have. Schwartz says that too many choices leaves us paralyzed to decide and unhappy with whatever we pick in fear that we chose wrong. If you look at it in this way, Fenty is doing makeup consumers a favor that other brands are not. When rating a cosmetics line, we usually consider factors like coverage, variety and affordability. Are we forgetting to factor in how much happiness the products bring us? In a world where you can purchase anything, should you purchase everything? For me, Fenty products bring me more happiness than other brands because they offer variety that I can wrap my head around. They have made it easy to replicate the look they advertise. Rihanna has made it possible for other women to live in her fantasy. Layla Soboh is a UF advertising junior.

By Sloan SavageAlligator Staff WriterA survey released May 16 by Online Colleges ranked UF as No. 1 in a list of online college education programs for 2018-2019 in Florida. Kathy Harper, associate director of marketing and communications for UF Online, said the ranking can be credited to the proa UF student. UF has offered online programs since the late 1990s, but it wasnt until 2014 that UF Online was established through legislative initiatives that provide special funding for the online program, Harper said. UF Onlines tuition is 25 percent less than on-campus tuition, Harper said. Online students are also exempt from certain fees that campus students pay. Like traditional students, online students also have access to resources at the Career Connections Center, formerly called the Career Resource Center. JaNet Glover, senior director for career services at the CCC, said the center made it a priority to ensure it has an online presence and has hosted about 70 virtual events in the past year alone. Virtual career fairs allow employers to post information about their company and available positions, then chat, or video chat, with students online, she said. We wanted to make sure that students and employers still have the ability to have that face-to-face connection, Glover said. Harper said UF Online students have been given greater access to all the fantastic things that are a part of UF as a top 10 university. ...even if theyre not right here in Gainesville, they can feel a part of it, and have a great student experiences, Harper said. @sloanasavage email@example.comUF ranks as No. 1 online college in the state of Florida Photos by Davio RodriguezAlligator Staff

10 ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2018 By Samantha LeonAlligator Contributing WriterAs Florida continues to recover from Hurricane Irma, a new hurricane season approaches June 1. The City of Gainesville will soon release AlertGNV, an emergency alert system that will enhance communication with residents, said the City of Gainesville. AlertGNV will launch by the end of June or July, Skinner said. The alert system will provide text and email updates on severe weather situations. Skinner advised students to monitor storms and have enough food and water to last three days in case of power outages. Students with As soon as (the hurricanes) forecast to hit the state of Florida, (students) have to start thinking progressively, he said. If students are concerned about where to go during a hurricane, they should contact their resident advisors, said Hal Grieb, the assistant director of UF Emergency Management. On-campus students should stay in their residence halls unless otherwise advised, he said. Shelters are really not where you want to default to go. Its minimal comfort. Theres no bedding provided, Grieb said. Theres food and water, but its basically designed for a place of last resort to seek shelter during the high winds. Brooke Fletcher, a 20-year-old Kingsland, Georgia, native, who is transferring to UF in the Fall, said the hurricane season is not nearly as intense in Georgia as it is in Florida. Im not really used to leaving for storms, she said. So, Id probably stick around up until theres a mandatory evacuation.Gainesville, UF anticipate upcoming hurricane seasonBy Jacob KovachAlligator Contributing Writer Caputo, 29, went to the Florida Museum of Natural History on Monday with his wife and two children. He appreciated the opportunity for a day trip away from Jacksonville, where he is currently stationed. Florida Museum will be offering free admission to any fee-based exhibits, such as the new exhibit Masters of the Night: The True Story of Bats, to active-duty U.S. family members this year from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Its been great for the kids, Caputo said. Theyve been able to get their hands on everything. Caputo, who has served for technician in the Navy. He said his children particularly enjoyed the interactive exhibits the museum offered, which include a dark cave exhibit that can be crawled through and the museums Youth Discovery Zone. Caputo said despite military boy beginning to play hockey and a 3-year-old girl trying her hardest to keep up with her older brother. As he spoke, his kids giggled and jumped with about a dozen other children in the museums main gallery, watching an augmented reality Colombian mammoth stomp around on an array of screens that were displayed on the room and, to the childrens delight, them. Caputo said he thought the opting tribute to the occasion, allowing military families to relax and a welcoming escape for some. I think its a great way to honor (those who served), Caputo said. Its much better than sitting around cooking and drinking. Paul Ramey, the assistant director of marketing and public relations at the Florida Museum, said the staff is more than happy to support active-duty service members and veterans. He wishes more could be done to thank them. Ramey, an employee of the museum since 1999, said there were not many locations offering opportunities like this when the museum Blue Star Museums, which is now in its seventh consecutive summer working with the Florida Museum. He said attendance has been steady and has even increased during the promotion that gives free admission to active-duty military personnel and their families. According to Blue Star Museums, the number of museums participating in providing service members and their families with opportunities like this now exceeds 2,000. The organizations website contains a consistently updated list of offers that families may use. In Gainesville, the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention, the Florida Museum and the Harn Museum of Art are the three listed partners. Limited exhibits of the museum that are currently on display are Masters of the Night: The True Story of Bats, Hope for Humpbacks and Mapping the Museums Collections. The museum doesnt have many ways to show our appreciation, Ramey said, so anything we can do, even little things, are important to us, and hopefully them.Courtesy to The AlligatorThe Florida Museum of Natural Historys assistant director of marketing, Paul Ramey, said attendence is up after offering free admission to active-duty miilitary personnel.
