In a study published July 4 in Science Advances, researchers at UF and Boise State Unimoths escape bats. (This study) is really kind of a major step forward in trying to understand how insects and their primary predators, bats, are able to interact with each other and get away from each other, said study supervisor and associate curator of lepidoptera and biodiversity at the Florida Museum of Natural History Akito Kawahara. Kawahara said the yearlong study took place at both UF and Boise State in Idaho. UFs research focused on understanding the evolution of tails on moths. He said if tails are important tools for escaping bats, over time, more moths would tend to have these features. The team tested four hindwing shapes in real time battles between moths and bats to see which moths were the most successful at escaping. According to the study, the attacks were able to be seen using high-speed videography. The videos showed moths with longer tails and hindwings have a higher escape rate. Theres so many new things we are discovering with this new technology, Kawahara said about high-speed videography. Ten years ago, 20 years ago we probably wouldnt (have) been able to do some of this work in the way we did because we didnt have the tools we do now. The same team released another study in 2015 that showed moths with tails survive bat attacks better than those without, said co-author and Boise State doctoral student Juliette Rubin. Rubin said her favorite aspect of the study was the process of data collection, watching and videoing the bats and moths duke it out in It was always fun to collaborate with the Florida team, and it was neat for us to meld our worlds together, said Rubin. Seeing the interactions (of the bats and moths) unfold in real time is really impressive. Kawahara and Rubin emphasized the importance of the 160,000 moth species in our world as they are an important component of the natural environment. Its important to broaden our understanding of the natural world, said Rubin. As the world and biodiversity changes, well (be able) to understand how things have evolved to our present day. @danacassidy_ firstname.lastname@example.org The Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump chose Brett Kavanaugh, a solidly conservative, politically connected judge, for the Supreme Court Monday tion battle with Democrats as he seeks to shift the nations highest court ever further to the right.

TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2018 ALLIGATOR 5 By Victoria ChinAlligator Contributing WriterViviane Charlestin remembers wearing a red dress when her family drove to West Palm Beach on a hot day in 2003. Her mother, Ruthe, said they were visiting Vivianes father before he left for a vacation. Viviane and her siblings waited in a dark, gray room with prison-like windows. Her older sister came out of another room crying and wouldnt tell Viviane why. It wasnt until Viviane was 11 years old when she found out her father, Villiance, was being held in jail that day, before being deported to Haiti. I didnt even realize he was in jail. All I knew as a kid (was) Dad wasnt there, 20-year-old UF English major Viviane said. I situation most of the time. When Viviane and Ruthe heard about the U.S. government separating families who are crossing the border illegally to seek asylum in the U.S., Viviane said her mother cried the entire day. (immigration) is and the effect that it has on family, Viviane said. Its affecting the kids the most. And its really sad because their parents came here for them, and now youre taking them away. Before Villiance was deported, the Charlestin family moved to Fort Pierce after their house in Orlando was foreclosed. Six kids shared the two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. ViviVilliance picked oranges in the morning and ran a car mechanic business in the evening. Viviane remembers her ffather being strong, proud and hardworking. When Viviane was 4, her fathers friend needed help moving a car overseas. In the process, the two were questioned about their documentation. Villiances visa had expired, and he was jailed. losing time. As the familys sole provider, Ruthe worked for a housekeeping company before it was shut down and got a job at McDonalds. She hated it but knew someone had to pay the bills. After two years, the family eventually moved into a duplex-style home through Section 8 housing. Ruthe paid $300 a month there but still couldnt afford the rent. We didnt see it as like, Oh, government housing is bad. Youre on welfare, Viviane said. We saw it as, We get a house, like, a big house. Two bathrooms! Ruthe received about $500 each month in food stamps, but the family still went hungry some nights. Ruthe pawned her wedding ring for food money and sold a necklace her son bought her for Mothers Day to pay for the light bill. Their neighborhood on 23rd Street was unsafe. Frequent gang violence forced Viviane and her siblings to stay inside after school. Ruthe studied English at night school and reviewed a CD and booklet every day before becoming a U.S. citizen in 2012. During this time, the family moved back to Orlando with no plan. Ruthe got a well-paying housekeeping job, but the Charlestins went homeless again in 2013 until Viviane found an apartment for the family near Oak Ridge, Florida. Viviane attended Oak Ridge High School before convincing her mom to move into lowincome housing in Gainesville to be closer to her sisters, who were attending UF. Through it all, the family preserved their culture by cooking Haitian food, going to a Haitian Baptist church, speaking Creole and celebrating Haitian holidays. The family remained in contact with Villiance, but phone calls to Haiti were laborious at the time. Prince, Haiti, and Viviane saw her father for Villiance met his family wearing an orange, short-sleeved button-up shirt with jeans and black boots. He had buzzed-cut gray hair and wrinkles. Viviane did not recognize him at all. I felt like our conversations were just dry and fake, Viviane said. He knew nothing about me. He missed every graduation, he missed every birthday. Not because it was his fault, but just in general. Villiance was unemployed, and the only person sending him food or money was Ruthe. The job he wants to do is be a mechanic, and thats what hes good at, Viviane said. Thats what he learned. But many people do not own cars in Haiti, nixing the need for mechanics. Sometimes, Villiance is homeless. Other times, he lives with family. Ruthe paid about 1,000 gourdes for a rental house for their visit, where Villiance would be able to live for the rest of the year. While visiting Haiti, Viviane and her family only had electricity every other day for an coolers were used to keep things cold. Its really crazy to see how even (about) 10 years after the earthquake, its gotten worse, Viviane said. They visited initially to get a waiver from Haitis U.S. Embassy for Villiance to come home. However, the embassy in Haiti told them to go to America to get the waiver. But they had been told in America to go to Haiti to get the waiver. The family started Villiances case in 2008, but it was canceled because his phone was often stolen, making communication with his except Ruthe gave up on bringing him back long ago. Were just going to have to move on with it and just accept the fact that he cant stay here anymore, Viviane said. And its a really sad realization, but at the same time, its almost like were numb to it. The family started the expensive process of turned to the U.S. on June 29. For one application paper, its $300, another is $250, and its just money that my mom doesnt have, Viviane said. Viviane said she would like to volunteer to families. She thinks Americans should treat immigrants better. Theyre not stealing your jobs, she said. Theyre taking the jobs that you dont want. cult the immigration process is, Viviane said. People try their hardest, but sometimes they still cant get in. Of course, people are going to sneak in because they want a better life, Viviane said. Its because they want to come here for their deported, but their kids are safe. Theyre willing to take that risk. Vivianes oldest sister is now getting her doctorate at the University of Notre Dame. Her other sister plans to become a teacher. to change the perception of Haitian culture in the media. I really just want to put Haiti on the map and hopefully make it successful enough that I can give my mom everything and more she said, and hopefully even write her story.By Kelly HayesAlligator Contributing WriterFilipino President Rodrigo Dutertes war on drugs has led to the deaths of thousands of people, catching the attention of student groups at UF. A public forum was held in a Reitz Union classroom Sunday afternoon to discuss Dutertes human rights violations and how Since 2016, more than 26,000 people have been killed in Dutertes violent war on drugs, Malaya Movement Coordinator Yves Nibungco said. The 12 people that attended talked about the threat of Dutertes war against the Filipino people particularly poor, indigenous populations. The common scenario is that (Filipino citizens) are accused of being drug users with no trial and are killed in police operations with no due process, Nibungco said. They have no way of defending themselves. The forum was organized by UFs Asian American Student Union and included speakers from the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) and the Malaya Movement. Theres a huge population of Filipinos here in Florida, Nibungco said. We believe it is important to bring awareness here. Nibungco explained how people in the states can help, including calling their U.S. representatives. He said it is important for U.S. residents to join in outreach to support the growing resistance of Filipino people. We are concerned about our tax dollars being spent in the Philippines in the form of military aid, Nibungco said. About $5 million goes to train the law enforcement directly participating in Dutertes war on drugs. We believe people should be aware of that. For UF sustainability studies senior Priya Pershadsingh, 20, the presentation was informative, inspiring and even a bit shocking. I actually have a really close friend who is from the Philippines, and he doesnt really talk about situations like this, Pershadsingh said. It was really eye-opening. By Anais RoacheAlligator Contributing WriterThe City of Gainesville has announced a tree team to develop an urban forest management plan to act as a roadmap that will enhance the citys current tree canopy, which is the layer of tree brush that covers the city when viewed from above, and maximize its ability to provide The tree team will also be working with Gainesville Regional Utilities on tree-trimming operations so certain areas wont fall victim to tree limbs falling on power lines, affecting electricity during hurricanes and large thunderstorms. the City of Gainesville, said the team has been in planning since the citys Blue Ribbon report, which called to put citizens at the front of the citys decision making process. The team will be able to open up our eyes shoes, Skinner said. Instead of just being a city employee, were taking into account (citizens) feelings and thoughts on different processes as well. Skinner said the biggest issue currently facing the urban forest is development along Archer Road and people who do not adhere to the current mitigation process of the citys tree canopy, which calls for replacing trees that have been removed with new ones. Despite these obstacles, Skinner said he feels the city is still doing well in terms of tree cover, as it has been considered a Tree City USA for more than 30 years, a status given to cities that meet certain standards of urban forestry management. City arborist Matthew Mears said the citys zens like providing shade, clean air, ground water and even a sense of place. When I think of Gainesville, I think of its really beautiful and thick tree canopy, and I think itd be quite a different place if there were no trees for sure, Mears said. Mears said community members can get involved with the development of the management plan by attending public meetings with the citys Tree Advisory Board once a month. Its really important for the community to get involved because the urban forest is a bensaid.Courtesy to The Alligator

Mascots like Tony the Tiger and Lucky the Leprechaun jump out from each rectangle. The obvious conclusion is that a lot of these cereals are aimed at kids. Turn those boxes over and youll ar and, for some, extremely high. Improving public health isnt a simple topic, but one common sense move is obvious: We should stop marketing sugary cereals to children. Lets start with the more obvious: A diet high in sugar is not healthy. The American Heart Association (AHA) has continually adjusted sugar intake recommendations downward. Were slowly starting to realize that fats are not the biggest culprit. Sugar intake has been shown to contribute more to obesity than fats. Not only does sugar harm you in a direct way when eaten in excess, it leaves less room in your diet for healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products. Eating lots of added sugar early in life is linked with obesity, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Those are factors that lead to heart disease in both children and young adults. The new AHA guidelines call for less than 25 grams of sugar per day for children between 2 and 18 years old. One serving of Lucky Charms, for example, contains 10 grams of sugar. That doesnt leave much more room for sugar consumption in the rest of the day. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), most people eat more than 30 percent of the serving size listed on the nutrition facts label. That turns 10 grams into 13 grams. Marketing targeted at children aims to further increase that amount. Lets take a look at why marketing to kids is unethical. Lucky the Leprechaun, mascot of Lucky Charms, was created in 1963 to give the cereal a friendlier, more youthful face. The shape and color of the marshmallows changed to appeal to young consumers. These tactics were used because children arent won over by nutrition labels. They convince their parents to buy cereals that are the most fun, have the most color and excitement and have the catchiest theme songs. Children are not persuaded by nutrition labels. They cant be expected to understand them especially when portion typical person eats. Worse, kids are already eating two to three times the daily recommended amount of sugar, according to nutritionist Dawn Undurraga. Parents are further misled when thinking cereal is part of a complete breakfast when really that statement only means it shouldnt be eaten alone. Cereal is no more part of a complete breakfast than a slice of cake is part of a complete dinner. The Federal Trade Commission only acts to prevent commercial speech to enforce the law, e.g., preventing Camel cigarettes from marketing to children because kids arent old enough to buy cigarettes legally. Because Uncle Sam wont step in to help, we should solve this sugar overdose by educating parents to the harmful effects of sugar and ask marketers to think and act ethically. Unfortunately, those are the only ways out of this Trix rabbit hole. Stephan Chamberlin is a UF political science junior. His column comes out Tuesday and Thursday. Silly cereal industry, Trix aren't for kidsColumn Stephan Chamberlinopinions@alligator.org Americans have recently discovered the harm of plastic straws to the environment and the animals that inhabit it. Overnight, it seems that many young people have begun urging each other to stop using the thin drinking tubes. I didnt understand why straws were any worse than other plastic pollution. we singling out straws? This week I set mentalists were warning us about these seemingly innocent tools. bigger challenge than other plastics is that we often dont think to recycle them. They cant be recycled theyre too small to be processed by the machines at recycling plants. Americans use 500 million straws per day and their average life span is 20 minutes. Because plastic never fully biodegrades, the straws will live the majority of their life littered somewhere or will make the journey to a continent that is a third of the size of North America: the Great When animals are swimming in more plastic than water (One study predicts pollution will outweigh marine life by 2050), they can inhale it or eat it. According to onegreenplanet.org, up to 50 percent of sea turtles ingest plastic. This can cause them to get sick and die or be unable to digest food. When we lose one part of the ecosystem, it affects many other species including humans! People should take the endangerment/extinction of animals personally. It might not directly affect you, but it will at some point. Its just cruel that an innocent animal should have to suffer because of our actions. Its a bit ridiculous that we are so addicted to a product with literally no purpose. When did we become too lazy to lift a glass up? Straws are one of the top 10 items found in beach clean ups. Straws serve little to no purpose and are handed out excessively by restaurants and bars. Its hard to believe we still use them when it costs zero dollars to just drink out of a cup. There are compostable plastic straws, but these are meant to be broken down at a facility not by the ocean. Paper straws can be a good alternative, but they quickly turn to mesh. Your best option, if youre looking to give up straws, is to buy a reusable metal or wooden straw. Or you could always just take the lid off your drink and go strawless. Not using a straw might seem like an inconvenience, but we have to draw the line somewhere. I think we are accustomed to a level of luxury that isnt sustainable. For me, living in a secondworld country taught me about living with less unnecessary comforts. Giving up straws to protect the wildlife from consuming them and dying seems worth it to me.

TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2018 ALLIGATOR 15 Support the Red Cross Services to Armed Forces and change a life, starting with your own. Call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit redcross.org Blake Snell has been one of the most dominant starting pitchers in all baseball through the 2018 season. During his third season in Tampa Bay, hes unexpectedly led the Rays to a record on the plus-side of .500 (45-44) and put himself in serious contention for the American League Cy Young Award. However, it seems that because Snell doesnt play routinely in the national spotlight for a blue-chip club, his AllStar ability is going unnoticed by much of the country. The Rays only posted one All-Star selection in Wilson Ramos, a catcher in a league without great depth behind the plate. All of the ALs starting pitcher selections play in markets much larger than Tampa. The Yankees, Red Sox and InAll-Stars, and each contributed two pitchers along with the World Series champion Astros. Of course, the selections of the Yankees Luis Severino, the Red Soxs Chris Sale, the Astros Gerrit Cole and the Indians Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer are undisputed. However, Snell has posted a better earned-run average than all of them (2.09), as he leads the AL in that statistic. Hes also second only to Severino in the MLB in wins (12) and 10th in the AL in wins above replacement regardless of position (4.3). Even though the crop consists of established, elite talent, Snell deserves a nod over at least one of these All-Star mainstays. Jose Berrios of the Minnesota Twins and J.A. Happ of the Toronto Blue Jays were both selected to the AL All-Star roster instead of Snell. Both Berrios and Happ are not featured in the Leagues top10 in ERA, WAR among pitchers or strikeouts. Snell appears on all three lists. Berrios (8-7) and Happ (105) headline their respective rotations but have both struggled as of late. Theyve each lost their last two starts, giving up at least three earned runs in their respeective outings. Snell (12-4), on the other hand, has four-straight victories and hasnt relinquished more than one earned run in each of those starts. The hot arm is who the American League should be going to in the All-Star game. Snell has been pitching better than both Berrios and Happ lately and would be comfortable on the mound with Ramos behind the plate.

Read it until it becomes commonplace for you. No, seriously, I mean it, STOP GIVING COVERAGE TO TIGER WOODS. Not only is he a terrible role model, but hes completely washed up too! Face it, all you golf schmucks, HES NOT COMING BACK. Find someone new you can really feel good about sinking a 12-footer on 18 at Augusta. Since 2018 began, out of 12 tourished better than 10th. He has yet to win a tournament, and hes missed the cut twice. But heres the problem: when I turn on the TV, theres only one name I see. Tiger Woods. No matter what channel or network, its always the same. You turn on ESPN, Tiger Woods. Golf Channel, Tiger Woods. FOX Sports, NBC Sports, CBS, Tiger Woods. Shame on the networks. Its a pity that they care more about money than the people who actually should be receiving attention. At the Quicken Loans National two weekends ago, I couldnt tell you off the top of my head who won, but I could damn sure tell you that Tiger Its an absolute travesty that I had to look up the fact that Francesco Molinari won the tournament by EIGHT STROKES. The Italian shot a 21 under, absolutely torching the previous tournament record of 14 under. He carded 21 birdies, an eagle and just two bogeys in a showcase of some of But did you know that? Chances are, you probably didnt because every network is focused on Tiger, who, might I remind you, hasnt won an event since the WGCBridgestone Invitational in 2013 or a major since the U.S. Open in 2008. Hes No. 69 in the world golf ranking, yet he garners the most attention from media, and the discrepancy isnt even close. I previously mentioned that hes a terrible role model, and thats 100 percent accurate. Tiger Woods is not someone you bring home to introduce to your teenage daughteror even your divorced 45-year-old sister in-law. Where do I even begin? in 2009, where he had extramarihave relationships with over a dozen different women? Or how about the treatment of his ex-caddie, Stevie Williams? Williams went on the record in 2015 to say, It was like I was his slave. After TiAdam Scott, who went on to win a tournament shortly thereafter. Still believe Tiger is a great guy? Okay, one more example. How about when he was arrested as recently as 2017 for a DUI of prescription drugs? If you have a child, is this really the guy you want them taking an example from? Yet, once again, he receives more media coverage than any other golfer. I truly, truly do not understand the love affair between golf fans and Tiger Woods. Is he a top-three golfer of all time? Absolutely. Was he once the most masterful player of his time? Absolutely. Was he fun to follow between 1997 and 2009? Absolutely. But is he fun to watch now? Please, Id rather watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians over Tiger Woods. Chris OBrien is a sports writer.

Hall was a three-time South Carolina High School Miss Volleyball (2015, 2016, 2017) and won a gold medal, along with MVP honors, as a member of the USA Volleyball Junior National Team at the 2017 Under-20 Pan-American Cup. Well also throw in her 2014, 2016 and 2017 AAU Academic All-American honors. But Florida fans should be just as interested in what the Spartanburg, South Carolina, native will bring to the table as a freshman this fall. Hall (6-foot-3) plays the same position, outside hitter, as the departed Snyder and Joseph (both 6-foot-1). Snyder led the Gators in points a year ago, capping off an illustrious four-year career in Gainesville. Joseph caught on the 2017 All-America Second-Team next to Snyder. Needless to say, Halls skill set, athleticism and competitive spirit should be on full display in 2018. But the void in this team includes Alhassan and Knop, too the 2017 SEC Player of the Year and a 2017 All-America Honorable Mention, respectively. Florida needs another star to pair with middle blocker Rachael Kramer. The 6-foot-8 Kramer had a breakout 2017 campaign, earning herself All-America Third-Team honors. Hall is exactly the player UF needs in 2018. Mark: The UF soccer team is integrating tion match with Florida Gulf Coast on Aug. 7. The Gators best addition is perhaps defender Georgia Eaton-Collins. She's from Ipswich, England, and has experience playing for the Englands Under-19 national team and the Arsenal youth system. She was voted the Arsenal womens Under-20 Player of the Year. Eaton-Collins' addition is especially critical after the graduation of defenders Cassie Owens and two-time All-SEC talent Kristen Cardano left Florida with little depth in its central defense. In February, the program announced the addition of junior-transfer Carina BaltripReyes from Florida International and three national signees: attackers Cassidy Lindley, Mary Peace and Samantha Tobar. Baltrip-Reyes started eight games at midfor the entire 2017 season. However, she made an impact in UFs spring game against Florida State on March 23. She assisted attacker Las Araujo two minutes before halftime in the 1-1 tie. Lindley hails from St. Theodore Guerin Catholic in Noblesville, Indiana. She led the Golden Eagles to the 3A Girls State Championship match in her senior season. Lindley also scored two goals and three assists at the 2017 High School All-American Game held in Orlando on Dec. 2. Peace and Tobar are both in-state recruits. Peace, daughter of former Gators AllAmerican quarterback Wayne Peace, created 25 goals and 21 assists for Lakeland Christian last season and earned Division 1A District 12 Player of the Year honors. Tobar comes to Florida after playing three seasons at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland. @mstinejr firstname.lastname@example.org RECRUITS, from pg. 14UF volleyball will be bolstered by the No. 1 recruit in the country2012-13 season, when Wigan was FA Cup, he switched to more prestigious and ambitious Everton, where he would coach Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini, a pair that has World Cup goals. Martinez wasnt thought of as a tactician at the club level. He was third season at Everton following fan protests as the Toffees headed to their second straight 11th-place Wilmots after a 3-1 loss to Wales in him three months later. Martinez brought in former star Thierry Henry of France as an assistant, wanting his experience as a World Cup and European champion. Players were booed in to Spain, but the Red Devils are unbeaten in 24 matches since (19 wins). A month before the World Cup, he was rewarded with a new two-year contract running through the 2020 European Championship. He speaks English and Spanish, looking casual at news conferences, sometimes with several days of stubble. His workrate is impressive. One hour after the 3-2 win over Japan in the round of 16, Martinez texted Kenwright that he already was planning tactics for Brazil. Martinez waits until three hours before kickoff to reveal his lineup to his players. Kenwright praises Martinez for being an extraordinarily good man admired by club employees from top to bottom. He truly is, truly, truly, truly, 24-7. I dont say that thinking, well, hell take an hour off on Sunday. He wont. He takes no time off at all, Kenwright said. The World Cup this summer has not been about superstars, but has been about teams and particularly their coaches and their managers. And thats why people like (Martinez) and Gareth Southgate stand out. Martinez has been married for nine years to the former Beth Thompson they met when he was playing in Scotland and they have a 4 1/2-year-old daughter Luella. Coaching families always have to be prepared to move. was asked at a news conference whether he was interested in He can name whatever job he wants, Howard said. Maybe the U.S. soccer job?
