Editorial Column Half of dealing with a disability is the feedbackJust like theres sexism, racism, cisgenderism, anti-Semitism or ethnocentrism, theres ableism. discrimination against people with disabilities. No one should feel less than for being who they are. No form of discrimination is OK. However, in any case, discrimination can be accidental or well-intentioned, but also from a place of hatred or misunderstanding. I can write about ableism from my experience, but what I feel might be different from someone else who has a disability. Some people even prefer not to use the word disability. Its about identity and experience, but its more than that, too. Its something that is omnipresent, even though you might not realize it. It can be the way a building is created, how transportation runs, how the media tells stories, stereotypes or even pity. It can be inherent in jobs themselves and show in vocabulary or handicaps in an environment. A disability can be apparent or not show at all. I dont wear a sticker on my head that says Disabled, I could use a seat at the front of the bus. Sometimes, I feel obligated to be OK, to not be sick. There are buildings or spaces at UF that offer assistance to the disabled but actually do the opposite. It can be a broken elevator, an uneven sidewalk for people who need to use a wheelchair or it can be in the way classrooms are set up. For me, it can be distrust in the faces of professors when I say Im sick or my own pressure on myself, possibly because of the way society is set up: not wanting to feel called out, different or a burden. Sometimes, I wont use an accommodation because of guilt. People are not their difference. They are not victims or labels. In my case, I am not a ulcerative colitis student. Im a student who happens to have colitis, along with other new diagnoses Im working through. And just because someone has the same diagnosis does not necessarily mean they identify as disabled or want pity or help. How I live my day is my normal, but there are obstacles. It can be in the classroom, my dorm or just in my different capabilities. Ive lived as abled and disabled since I got sick with a chronic illness around the age of 12. I can see and feel the differences in my day-to-day life. In the past, Ive had teachers essentially blackmail me out of using my aids. For instance, I need access to the bathroom, but one teacher would give a grade based on if you left the classroom. Others would say, Are you sure you need this accommodation? It can be saying Im sorry for someone existing as they are with a disability. Sorry for being sick, for being who I am. I personally understand, but it can be hurtful to some people. Whats most hurtful for me is misunderstanding, even from Again, it all depends on the person and what terms or treatment they prefer. I dont want pity or special applause for doing the same things as everyone else. I hope the takeaway of this is that disability isnt just a wheelchair. It can be mental illness, a learning disability, a physical illness, being blind or deaf and even more. Ableism is pervasive. But, like I said in my last column, inclusion and diversity are more than a check mark. Its about making sure people are heard and that needs are met with proper accommodations. It goes beyond a sign or awareness. No one should be called out or treated differently because they have different needs or because their needs must be met in a different way. I think the world needs more understanding in daily life, school, work, public spaces, the way stories are told and even in the way some doctors do their jobs. In my writing, I hope to be a part of this change. Sophie Feinberg is a UF journalism junior.

You debate the best cure for your headache and tired eyes. You could do brunch and try to keep the patriotism going by chugging cheap champagne and orange juice. You could betray your headache and quivering belly by downing some eggs Benedict Arnold. But this is America. And like Childish Gambino, you plan to ride this wave of uncomfortable feelings with blunt ferociousness and embrace the pain of what it means to be an American in distress. You summon the strength of our forefathers and prepare to face the day armed with nothing but the spirit of Americana andDARTS AND LAURELSMorgan McMullen EDITOR Bailey LeFever MANAGING EDITOR Sarah Stanley UNIVERSITY EDITOR Baylie Cainas METRO EDITORSophie America the beautiful? We think not! With clouds overhead and soggy hamburger buns, we here at The Alligator award Gainesville weather a dart for ruining our respective pool days and barbeques. The Fourth of July is meant to be spent outside, not awkwardly standing under the only shelter at an apartment complex pool. This is unacceptable. Inclement weather is especially a buzzkill with a 5 p.m. staff meeting on the schedule. The rain wiped out The Alligator staffs chances of a good time before our night of copy editing and tweaking layout. Pity that! So we assign a dart to staff meetings, this one goes for all types of weather. In all types of weather, we have no choice but to stick together. On that note, we award a well-earned laurel to the service industry this Fourth of July. Serving up Belgian-owned Bud Light to ignorant but well-meaning patriots isnt exyou for doing what youve gotta do. In fact, what you accomplished last night is the epitome of America: hocking off a foreign product that has an American appeal to rubes that dont know any better. Were also not shy about bequeathing a laurel to the City of Alachua for hosting what it calls The Largest Small Town Fireworks Display in America. The event is the catalyst for those same rubes occupying local bars and restaurants well into the night and spending their hard-earned dollars to support local businesses. The spirit of America can be summed up by a general distrust of the government. King George III knew this quite well, what with ticking off half of the colonial population by withholding elected representation. Much of the news of the British Parliament came either from royal decrees from His Majesty or from proclamations from regional governors.

Call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit I have recently come across a community of people who have a unique view about diets and veganism. These people believe that consuming a more environment and our bodies, but they are open to making exceptions in times of inconvenience. We all know that animal agriculture is one of the worst contributors of methane into our atmosphere. Not only do animals omit natural gases but the process of maintaining them, processing them and transporting them uses a lot of fossil fuels. Veganism is a growing response to this threat to our environment Vegetarian Times reports that more than 1 million Americans are vegan. But what happens when you slip up or cheat? As humans, we are obsessed with perfection. We look for clear-cut little meat, we want to go all the way and become vegan just so we can characterize ourselves easier. The truth is, you dont have to be a vegan to reduce the amount of meat you eat. Choose to beFlexitarians are those who stick to a mostly ibility in their lifestyle. A reducetarian is someone who commits to just eating less meat.

One of Hulus most recent original shows, called The Looming Tower, equally places viewers in 1998 and 2004, both before and after Sept. 11, 2001. The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the rence Wright that was released in 2006. ning of al-Qaida, the Islamic militant group created by Osama bin Laden.

As an interesting turn, the series then low us to see an interpretation of government response and the preventative actions The Hulu series, which premiered in late February, is a 10-part series that uses parts ners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda by Ali Soufan and the 9/11 Commission Report to create its plotline. One of the most interesting things this series highlights compared with other accounts is the consistent rivalry between the charge of evidence and what action they Rather than recreating the news or creating their own stories, the show uses actual Although the show is seen through the ential role in what occurred, the story mainly focuses on the professional and private American agent, Ali Soufan. As mentioned before, the real Soufan trayed by Tahar Rahim. Rather than just being a 9/11 documentary, I believe this show does a good job of retelling actual accounts while also telling a story. Instead of just having a narrator or single voice unraveling the events, The Looming Tower depicts a more personal narrative into the lives of the main character. The show has a more humanistic and emotional ing on this story. and any signs that may have led to this.

10 ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2018 By Lindsey Breneman Avenue WriterActivism combined with music Tuesday night after a weekend of nationwide protests against President Donald Trumps zero tolerance immigration policies. The Civic Media Center hosted a teras a local grassroots organization led by immigrants for immigrants in the area. It was founded by Gia Delpino in January 2017. Delpino works closely with Rev. Larry Green from Westminster Presbyterian Church. Together, they are working to bring the original vision including a rapid response hotline for immigrants, a community ID program, an anti-deportation package and a bail fund for detainees. The Michael Character from Boston. James Ikeda, 28, has been releasing albums as The Michael Character since 2011 on Bandcamp. He wants his audience to always have to grapple with his music, which he describes as political acoustic punk that exists in the tension between incrementalism and radicalism. tension. Hes taught history to high school students for six years but doesnt teach the average run-of-themill 11th grade history he teaches black radical thought at Quincy High life is to be of use. Ikeda says history has a unique utility that allows people to contextualize the world. However, hes careful to express the fact that he does not have all the answers but instead wants to generate interest and compassion in individuals. Ikeda wants his own experiences to open windows into political ideas. Ikedas friend and fellow musician Cameron LeViere, 25, took the stage as well. LeViere is the front man for Lawn Care, a math punk band from Pittsburg. While studying anthropology at a small liberal arts school in Wisconsin, he loved doing lawn work. LeViere says it was a fun way to save on a gym membership and get a tan. His friend gave him the name Lawn Care as a joke and it stuck. Now, under that moniker, he likes to write ethnographic songs with a lot of weird time signatures. Without his band behind him, LeVieres set was acoustic. It included a song about East Liberty, a Pittsburg neighborhood thats been song he wrote about his own tension from moving in with his partner. According to LeViere, its weird when youre in the leftist politics and stuff to move in with someone, and do the whole capitalist settling down thing and buy pots and pans. Ikeda and LeViere have been touring across the country together for most of the summer. Gainesville was their last stop before they move back up to the Northeast. pure Brazilian samba meets Jamaican reggae in their soulful music. Theyve earned Brazilian Press Awards for the past two years. Manu Osorio is the Civic Media Center volunteer who organized the LeViere through a friend of a friend. They had a phone conversation one day, ironically, while he was doing lawn work. When he asked for help getting a gig in Gainesville, Osorio headline the night, which is why she Osorio is also a part of the create the rapid response immigrant ing deadline. The original goal was $1,760. With the donations from the show the group raised over $3,000. The CMCs next show has a Black Out theme July 13.

The Associated PressNEW YORK (AP) Joey Jaws Chestnut extended his reign as champion eater at the Nathans Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest Wednesday, downing a record 74 wieners and buns in 10 minutes to take home the coveted Mustard Belt for the 11th time. Miki Sudo held on to her title as the top womens competitor at the annual Brooklyn eat-off, chomping 37 franks and buns to take home the top prize for an unprecedented Chestnut said he was feeling good. I found a vicious rhythm, the 34-yearBut while Chestnut ate 10 more dogs and cotti, a judging error cast initial doubt over their totals after jurists didnt see the eaters were taking the dogs and buns from two plates. Frankly, the judging was just off, said George Shea, the longtime Coney Island announcer. Joey said, Look at my plates, and Carmen said, Look at my plates. We counted the plates that they had eaten and it was 64 and 74. Eric Gonzalez, the Brooklyn district attorrecord of 74, two more than he consumed last year. At the end of the day, Joey Chestnut came in here and ate 74 hot dogs, broke a world record, said Cincotti, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Wednesday. Apparently they were good dogs. On Tuesday in New York, Nathans Famous held the weigh-in for their annual 4th of July hot dog eating contest. (July 3) A total of $40,000 in prize money was up home $10,000 each. Sudo fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed last year but easily beat out secondArizona, who chowed down 28 wieners and buns. Thousands of attendees, many donning mustard-colored hot dog caps, braved 83-degree temperatures and a heat index of 91 degrees to witness the annual July Fourth competition on the Coney Island boardwalk. The outlandish tradition dates to 1972, though the company has long promoted what a former president acknowledged was a legendary start date of 1916. Fan Martha Pleasant, of Franklin, New Jersey, said she was attending the competitive eating competition to support her husband, Dwight Pleasant, who loves wieners.

Jim Jordan said on Wednesday he never knew of sexual abuse by a now-dead doctor who examined wrestlers Jordan helped coach decades ago at Ohio State University. Jordan, speaking to reporters at a July Fourth rally in Fremont, repeatedly denied claims by ex-wrestlers Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts, who say the powerful Republican congressman from Ohio knew back then that Richard Strauss was groping male athletes. Jordan acknowledged that Strauss was among faculty members and other employees who used the same open shower area as athletes in the building where they practiced, but he said he and other coaches with whom he has spoken werent aware of any abuse by Strauss. We knew of no abuse. Never heard of abuse, Jordan said. If we had, wed have reported it. Male Ohio State athletes from 14 sports have alleged sexual misconduct by Strauss, who was on the faculty and medical staff and published a variety of research. Strauss died in 2005, and his death was ruled a suicide. Surviving relatives havent responded to messages left by The Associated Press seeking comment about allegations against him. The university has urged anyone with relevant information to contact is conducting an independent investigation. More than 150 former students and witnesses have been interviewed. the university in the matter has said investigators tried unsuccessfully and email to seek an interview with him. The congressman said his ofand he is willing to talk with investigators but had nothing scheduled as of Wednesday. He called the timing of the wrestlers allegations about him interesting. If there is any type of abuse of these folks, we want them to get justice, but its interesting that the timing is what it is in light of things that are going on in Washington, Jordan said. Jordan, a founder of the conservative Freedom Caucus, is a potential contender for U.S. House speaker. He has taken leading roles and in pushing back against the governments Russia investigation, most recently interrogating Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in committee. A spokesman for Speaker Paul Ryan said the university has rightfully initiated an investigation and Jordan on Wednesday also expressed concern about being among recipients of an email from DiSabato base with Capitol police about it, but he didnt elaborate. US Rep. Jordan denies claims he knew of Ohio State sex abuseThe Associated PressU.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) denied knowing of sexual abuse by Richard Strauss that occurred while he was coaching at Ohio State. We knew of no abuse, he said. If we had, wed have reported it.
