4 ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2018 By Tori ChinAlligator Contributing WriterIts been awhile since Heavan Papendick became a sexual assault survivor. She found a way to use her experiences to help others when she started volunteering for the Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center in 2016. It felt really good to know that I was able to take something so horrible that happened to me and turn it into something so good for somebody else, Papendick said. The Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center is seeking volunteers to answer calls on the centers 24-hour helpline and assist with outreach events, said Ashley Flattery, a victim advocate counselor. A volunteers responsibilities can range from just listening to sexual assault survivors to referring them to community resources, Flattery said. Volunteers take calls from the helpline when holidays, said Jessie Lazarchik, the sexual assault program manager. These calls are taken on a county cell phone which is given to the volunteers, according to their website. I think the most important thing for our folks on the helpline, more important than any is that the person is kind, compassionate, wants to be supportive of survivors in our community and is up for that kind of task, Lazarchik said. The center is looking for volunteers of all backgrounds but is especially encouraging bilingual, Spanish speakers to join, Flattery said. To start training at the center, an online application should be turned in by June 22, Lazarchik said. Applicants will then attend a one-onone meeting before the training, which begins June 27. The training includes 30 to 40 hours of online coursework through the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence and in-person training where volunteers practice answering calls on the helpline through role-play and presentations, Flattery said. Volunteers also learn about community resources they can refer callers to. The center requires volunteers to commit at least nine months to the helpline. Volunteers also have a monthly requirement to either work a weekend shift, where they are on call from 5 p.m. Friday to 8:30 a.m. Monday, or four weekday shifts from 5 p.m. to 8:30 a.m., Flattery said. The really cool thing about our helpline is a lot of times people get worried that theyre going to be pressured to report or that we wont help them if theyre not into the idea of talking to police, but we offer services whether a person wants to report or not, Flattery said. The helpline is not a high-volume hotline, Flattery said. All volunteers will have a backup staff member from the center on duty to serve as a consultant and relief for volunteers. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, people feel passionate about wanting to help sexual violence victims but may not know how, Flattery said. This is an outlet where if you want to help, if its something that youre passionate about, this is a concrete, actionable thing that you can do to help survivors in our community, Flattery said. By Jacob KovachAlligator Contributing WriterValeria Hernandez sank into her bath on Dec. 2, 2015. Shed considered killing herself for months and decided this was the night. During her attempt, she had a realization. She did not want to die. Even though my brain was convincing tooth and nail to stay alive, Hernandez said in an email. A week in the hospital following her attempt bridged two periods of her life: one of despair and one of progress. After I got hospitalized, I felt like I was in a different world, she said. Whatever diagnoses the psychiatrist would write up on my record, that wasnt a sentence condemning me to failure or a life of unhappiness. Hernandez, a 22-year-old UF psychology and family, youth and community sciences senior, said she hopes her story develops a discussion of mental health and suicide prevention. You cant save the people you cant reach, Hernandez said. In an effort to reach more students, the Counseling & Wellness Center at UF approved hiring 12 faculty members over the next four years. According to its website, the center saw 5,008 clients in 2017. Rosa West, the suicide prevention coordinator at the CWC, said the recent deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain have shifted national dialogue toward mental health. Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among college students, West said. Warning signs may include severe, lasting mood changes, disinterest in normal activities and slipping grades. The CWC provides a 24/7 suicide hotline for emergencies, counseling and suicide prevention techniques to assist distressed students. One of the things we communicate to students is that while there may be a wait for counseling, there is never a wait for a crisis or an emergency, West said. Hernandez hopes to work with students struggling with mental health. She helped coordinate UFs mental health taskforce and has been involved in the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program. Once a university admits a student, its (the universitys) responsibility to do everything in (its) power to keep them there and help them graduate, Hernandez said. Before counseling, Hernandez thought a prevalent stigma. She stressed the importance of being present for friends who may have mental health issues. I want to reach as many people as I possibly can, and maybe those people will reach even more people she said. So they have that thought one second before its too late, We are not dying here tonight, either. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255 and is available 24/7. The organization also offers a 24/7 chat with a counselor at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/. The CWC offers 24/7 emergency services at 352-392-1575.

By Anais RoacheAlligator Contributing WriterA recent survey found that LGBTQ student loan borrowers in the U.S. are disproportionately affected by student loan debt and 60 percent regret taking out loans. The survey by Student Loan Hero, a company that gives loan advice, polled 11,184 U.S. adults. Most were between the ages of 26 and 33 years old and Job discrimination, homeservices and lack of family to the LGBTQ community, according to Student Loan Hero. The results showed that 53 percent of LGBTQ borrowers make less than $50,000 a year, said Miranda Marquit, senior writer at Student Loan Hero. the general population. Yet, LGBTQ borrowers reported about $16,000 more in student loan debt than the general population. Marquit said the company decided to create the survey on how student loans affect the LGBTQ community. If people who have natural advantages in our society are struggling with student loan debt, we wanted to take a step back and ask how has it affected other communities who dont have the same advantages, Marquit said. Myles Lopez, a 19-year-old UF womens studies sophomore and ambassador for LGBTQ Affairs at UF, said the debt problem is part of an oppressive system. Activism is a huge thing, Lopez said. But ultimately its the responsibility of the institution and people who actually have power over this to make a change.LGBTQ student loan borrowers By Jessica CurbeloAlligator Staff WriterGainesville Police arrested a man Tuesday night for beating a man with a milk crate. Raymond Gullion was parked at Dignity Campgrounds, located at 3035 NE 28th Drive, in his pick-up truck when the victim walked by him.

Witnesses said he struck the victim with the crate multiple times, one witness said he struck the victim around 10 times.

THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7The front page of the Miami Herald on Wednesday read, Family pleads for help after deadly hit-and-run. Pick up a copy of any national paper and youll be bombarded with similarly sad news. Our allies are imposing tariffs on us. The #MeToo allegations continue to surface daily. There is a rogue tangerine with a 100-word vocabulary in the federal wheelhouse. The sky is falling. But every day, little by little, progress is being made in increments small enough to slip under the radar. Despite the negative press and bearing in mind there is still work to be done, we are progressing. These are a few of the headlines we should see. Deaths per billion vehicle miles traveled have fallen from about 100,000 in 1945 to nearly 1,000 in 2017. The world is getting safer through regulation. Serious crime has dropped every year since 1994, except for a few small blips, despite yearly Gallup polling data taken which showed Americans believed crime was up. Violence is on the decline. Cholera, one of humanitys greatest common enemies, will soon disappear from the Earth. Six months ago, it was met with a cheap and effective vaccine. Medicine and science are saving millions of lives daily. Half of all people with HIV are receivDeaths from AIDS have been cut in half since 2005. A horrible disease that we once thought was a permanent and insurmountable obstacle will soon be a rarity. Today, 107,632 people were lifted out of poverty. Thats substantially more people daily. Since 1990, 1.1 billion people have risen out of that lowest socioeconomic bracket. Thats three-quarters of a million people per week. Quietly, over the past 30 years, extreme poverty has been cut in half. But unfortunately, you did not read that headline yesterday. What you might have seen was Democrats urge Congress to take action on appalling rates of poverty, published in The Guardian. Im not denying that U.S. poverty rates are inexcusable for a developed country or dividuals are children. What Im saying is the situation used to be a lot worse, and Im not arguing that we shouldnt publish negative headlines we need them to help draw our attention to the dark spots that still exist in our society. But most importantly, and simultaneously, we need to keep our heads up. My argument is for opWe have every reason to believe that the future can be a bright and healthy place if we keep our eye on the ball. In the words of Steven Pinker, Johnstone Family Professor in the department of psychology at Harvard University, Better does not mean perfect We will never have a perfect world, but its not romantic or nave to work toward a better one. Stephan Chamberlin is a UF political science junior. His column comes out Tuesday and Thursday. In my home, the perfect Sunday consists of three things: good food, being unapologetically lazy and the newest episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. The show was such a staple in our home; we often fought over the remote around 9 p.m. every Sunday. My mom and I, loyal Parts Unknown fans, are always eager to tune in and feast our eyes on foods wed probably never eat. Occasionally, a daring sibling would work up the courage to request a different Sunday evening programing to no avail. This family civil war always ended one way with us all laughing and discussing what obscure part of this enigmatic world Bourdain had to show us that week. Bourdain was like a distant uncle who visited our home from time to time, taking a break from his adventures to tell us stories of clams in Vietnam or his dinner with former President Barack Obama. He peppered our thoughts with wonder. He brought us to a place wed visit only in our daydreams. Or, he peeled back the layers of dullness to reveal that every place has a story even the tattered coal towns of West Virginia. He was a philosophical tour guide who took us to different parts of our mind the curious parts that crave to understand those different from us. He was a chef, and he knew we were hungry. As a Palestinian, no textbook had ever taught me anything about my culture. But Bourdains episode in Israel closed that gap. He would take us in his pocket, to a place where a Visa could not. In a world that paints so many Muslims with the same stroke, he brought a sense of open-minded humanity to my people and to cultures all over the world. His trip to Gaza led to him winning an award from the Muslim Public Affairs Council. He said I was enormously grateful for the response from Palestinians in particular for doing what seemed to me an ordinary task show regular people doing regular things. His ability to tell stories is unmatched. Watching him explain the importance of me goosebumps. Bourdain made the point that beauty can truly be found in the most unexpected places, and he proved this episode after episode. You dont have to look to learn and be better, I urge you to travel as far and as widely as possible. Sleep er people live and eat and cook. Learn from them wherever you go, he said. He was a man whose job anyone would want but whose mind no one truly understood. He battled a heroin addiction in his younger years and spoke freely about it. Food fed his body but ultimately, adventure was not able to satiate his soul. With his skin covered in ink souvenirs of his life, he set off to tell his last story. He will be missed.

Read more about this binge-worthy cartoon on page 10.Check out page 9 to read more about The Avenues new podcast.By Gregory FlorezAvenue Staff WriterLocal pop-punk group You Vandal will perform live with Sports Reference, The Handsome Scoundrels and Kid You Not at Looseys on Friday. The event starts at 9 p.m. Admission for the show costs $5 and will be available at the door. You Vandal is a power-pop quartet from the swamps of Gainesville. We spoke to Eric Cannon, the bands bassist and vocalist, to talk about the band, the local community and the meaning of punk rock. Question: How and when did the band meet? Eric: Alex (guitar) and I met through an old message board, GainesvilleBands, sometime around 2009. We met Gooch (guitar and vocals) not long after that, when he was still playing in his old Vero Beach band Away With You. Millsaps (drums) was introduced to us around 2013 when YV was becoming more active, as opposed to just a home-studio project. Q: Where does the name You Vandal come from? E: We named the band after the title of an old song by Saves The that song is pretty iconic in a lot of emo-inspired, pop-punk circles. Q: How would you describe yourself? E: I think the phrase I just used, emo-inspired, pop-punk, is probably a decent description. Weve also gotten power-pop, and poppunk without the cringe. Q: What are some themes the band explored in its sophomore record, I Just Want to Go Back to Hell? E: There are a handful of songs about working through problems in romantic relationships and a handful more about broken friendships. But there are also a couple songs that touch on death, and the last track, Still the Same, is more about a general feeling of hopelessson or event. Q: When you think back to your entire discography, what songs stick out to you the most? E: Right now, I think Hang up the Phone from I Just Want to Go Back to Hell stands out the most to me. Its one of the rare occasions where a song turned out fairly short, sweet and simple, but we accomplished everything we set out to with it, and Im proud of the Q: How have you changed since E: As a band, I think our mucantly. Theres a lot of hokey and cheesy instrumental work on our early recordings that now makes me want to either laugh or bury my face in my hands. As an individual, Ive grown up a lot. I think Ive lyrically become more thoughtful and honest over the years, and hopeQ: If you could perform with or open for any band or musician, alive or dead, who would it be? E: Right now, Id have to say Third Eye Blind. Theyre a band that made a strong impression on starting to make your own choices about what you want to listen to instead of just whatever your parents like. But unlike a lot of other music I liked as a kid, Third Eye Blind still ence in my life today. Also, they seem like theyd be the most laidback people ever, which would relieve the pressure and nerves of having to open for a huge band. Q: What does it mean to be punk? E: What I personally consider punk is a general sense of not giving a f---. Not in an insensitive-toothers kind of way, but doing your own thing without caring or being held down by what other people think or say. That being said, Im not sure anyone adamantly punk cares to hear You Vandals thoughts on it. Q: What do you love the most about Gainesville? E: Ive always enjoyed how Gainesville has all the comfort of a small town while still having a lot of the conveniences that a lot of small towns dont have. Its this beautiful, laid-back oasis of hippies and hipsters in a part of the state that is otherwise fairly podunk. Q: How did a life in Gainesville E: Ive lived in Gainesville since 2005. Some of the biggest name bands from here have been major Ive formed most of my closest friendships with people while living here. I probably wouldnt be the person I am today if Id never moved here, and You Vandal Gainesville.Q&A: Eric Cannon of You Vandal talks Gainesville and punk rockBy Natu TwehAvenue ContributorStaged Reading Potluck and Smooth, Smooth Jazz Reading Potluck of the summer Thursday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Guests are invited to bring food, and a staged reading of the play Smooth, Smooth Jazz will begin at 7 p.m. Mike Llerena & The Nerve album release show with NOMORE and The Reinhards On Thursday at The Atlantic, from 9 p.m. to midnight, local band Mike Llerena & The Nerve will be having an album release show for their debut LP titled Old Haunts & New Horizons.

UF pitcher Brady Singer won D1Baseball's National Player of the Year Award on Wednesday. 118th U.S. OPEN BEGINS TODAYFirst tee times set for 6:45 a.m. at Shinecock Hills Golf Club in Southhampton, New York. Follow us for updatesFor updates on UF athletics, follow us on Twitter at @alligatorSports or online at www.alligator.org/sportsTHURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2018 www.alligator.org/sportsBASEBALLBy Chris OBrienSports Writer He dashed to second before careening over and falling to the ground. Media members were puzzled, and fans throughout the stadium let out a collective groan. That is, until his teammate crossed home plate to score a run for the Florida Gators. UF beat Auburn late Monday night to advance to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, for the fourthstraight season. A bold play call from coach Kevin OSullivan helped Florida sneak past the Tigers 3-2 in 11 innings. In the bottom of the fourth inning, to be stealing second when he fell over in the basepath. His act caught the attention of pitcher Andrew Mitchell, who promptly stepped off the mound the inning. However, Mitchell failed to realize that there was a runner on third as the event unfolded. By the time he did, Florida second baseman Blake Reese had crossed the plate to give his team a run it desperately needed. It was a big situation, Reese said. Tip your cap to Nick on the other side and just glad the timing worked out and gave us a chance. pulled a stunt like it, though. Back in 2015, against rival FSU in a one-run game, former UF players Josh Tobias and Richie Martin executed the exact same play with the same degree of success. Against Auburn on Monday, it gave Florida a 2-1 lead, and it was a necessary run because the Gators had to use extra innings to beat the Tigers. The steal home wasnt the only reason the Gators won on Monday, though. Two gutsy freshmen pitchers helped carry UF. First, it was Jack Leftwich. Then, it was Tommy Mace. After Game 1 and Game 2 starters Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar tossed gems in their respective contests, Leftwich got the call for Game 3. He pitched admirably for a kid who was still in high school just a year ago. The Orlando, Florida, native tossed four hits with three strikeouts. He was relieved in the sixth inning by Mace. The Tampa, Florida, native from Sunlake High School bridged the gap between Leftwich and closer Michael Byrne. Mace went two innings and gave up one run on one hit with one strikeout, another solid statline from a freshman. Byrne praised the two young players. Jack and Tommy did well, he said. Just shows the work we put in, the quality of pitches we have to make and if we execute our pitches, we feel like were good enough to get them out. Byrne wasnt the only one giving his freshmen love though. OSullivan made the point that in a moment that big, theres a lot of pressure on any player, and he said he was proud of his young players for coming through. If they dont pitch well, were not sitting here, winning this ballgame, he said. Florida opens the College World Series with a game against Texas Tech Sunday night at 7. @THEChrisOB cobrien@alligator.orgSteal home, stellar play by freshmen carries UF to CWSDavio Rodriguez / Alligator StaffFlorida second baseman Blake Reese stole home on a double-steal call from coach Kevin O'Sullivan.
