Bugs invade museum THE EXHIBIT LASTS UNTIL JANUARY. By INCH MINCHIN Alligator Staff Writer On Saturday, the butterfly exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History was upstaged by the maggot exhibit. CSI: Crime Scene Insects, an educational exhibit that opened over the weekend, will remain in Gainesville until January. Producers of the popular television show "CSI" contributed to the creation of the exhibit, said Paul Ramey, the assistant director of marketing and public relations for the museum. The exhibit, which was partially sponsored with a $60,000 grant from Student Government, is not intended for the squeamish, said Douglas Noble, the assistant director for exhibits and public programs at the museum.

Alandria Mustafa, a Southwest Rec employee, said that there has been a lot of disappointment about non-accessible showers since the center's locker rooms closed on April 5. While Mustafa said that the new locker rooms will be an improvement to the facilities once they are completed, the current lack of locker rooms is responsible for students finding other gyms to use this summer. The expansion, which is being funded by a $16.3 million dollar grant received in spring 2008, is scheduled to end in August. The showers will remain closed until the beginning of the fall semester, Local according to the News center's website. An exact number of the students affected by the renovation is difficult to determine, Mustafa said, because precise numbers of locker-room users have never been kept. The locker rooms' closure is not the only change students will have to work around in the SEE SOUTHWEST REC, PAGE 8 Mark Battiste, left, and Joanne Lindblad look at a display at the "CSI: Crime Scene Insects" exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History Monday afternoon. Census participation improves in county By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Contributing Writer More than a quarter of Alachua County residents have failed to prove they exist. As of Monday, 71 percent of Alachua County residents have mailed in their census questionnaires. In 2000, the total mail-back participation was 62 percent for Alachua County. The 2010 census will determine the use of more than $400 billion of federal spending and the number of delegates in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's website. On May 1, the Census Bureau began sending about 635,000 census enumerators to collect data door-todoor across America. "[This year's census] is 10 questions. It takes about 10 minutes to answer them," Ivy Bell Alachua County senior planner According to Ivy Bell, an Alachua County senior planner, this is the first year that the Census Bureau will not send a long form with the census questionnaire. In 2000, the long-form questionnaire was more than 50 questions long. "[This year's census] is 10 questions. It takes about 10 minutes to answer them," Bell said.

TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 UF alumna's choreography to be performed in D.C. Inspiration came from dancer's visit to Auschwitz By JAM EL LANGLEY Alligator Contributing Writer For recent UF alumna Megan Kendzior, dancing is more than just a means of selfexpression. This year, Kendzior's choreographed dance, "Witness," was selected to be performed at the National College Dance Festival at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., May 27 and 29. "Witness" is a collaborative dance among Kendzior and four other women and is set to the live musical accompaniment of Broadway accordion player Frank Ferraro. To receive this opportunity, Kendzior's dance was selected for the Gala Concert at the Central Regional Conference at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Kendzior's creation was directly related to her research as part of the UF University Scholars Program. The dance was inspired by her scholarship-funded visit to Auschwitz U F concentration camp in Poland. Alumni "I use my dancing as a way to teach and carry on the story of the Holocaust," she said. After her trip to Auschwitz, Kendzior felt a responsibility to show what she learned and continue the story of Holocaust victims. Kendzior's work also won first place at the Spring 2010 Howard Hughes Medical Institute Celebration of Creativity in Arts and Sciences. Kendzior graduated from the UF College of Fine Arts with a bachelor's in dance on April 30. During her tenure at UF, she was also a Student Government senator and founder of Dance for My Suitcase, a student organization for dance majors. She is currently in New York performing her works. %U s~ it ~?4) ~ ,, Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers *see bartender for details $2.99 DAILY LUNCH SPECIALS The The BaU ri HOUSE DO YOU HAVE PAIN '.Oe wells and Drafts IN YOUR FACE Domestic Pitchers OR JAW? starts at 6 p.m .We are seeking volunteers for a study of muscle and jaw function.

TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 m ALLIGATOR, 5 Pregnant woman beaten 0 GODMOTHER-TO-BE HIT THE VICTIM, WHO WAS DRIVING. By KATHERINE BEIN Alligator Writer The Gainesville Police Department arrested a godmother-to-be from Citrus Springs for attacking her 6-monthspregnant friend while the two were driving in west Gainesville early Sunday. Jessica Harris, 24, was riding in the passenger's seat when the two got into an argument, according to a GPD report. Harris, who had been drinking that night, became increasingly angered and attempted to pull the keys out of the ignition while the car was headed west on Newberry Road, the report stated. As the driver pulled into a parking lot, Harris became physically violent, swinging her legs over the center console to kick her pregnant friend in the stomach, the report stated. During the scuffle, the driver was on the phone with a friend who told police he heard the woman say, "Don't kick me in my stomach, you know I'm pregnant." When police arrived, they found bruises on the woman's belly from the kick, as well as scratches on her arms and bodily fluids secreting from her genitals, the report stated. The woman was then taken to the hospital by EMS workers, the report stated. Harris lost an arHarris tificial toenail in the fight and her left index finger was found in the patrol car's backseat, the report stated. After being read her rights, Harris said the driver hit her in the jaw and admitted to knowing the woman was pregnant, which is a special offense, the report stated. Harris is charged with one count of aggravated battery on a pregnant female. The bail is set at $5,000. Dance students to study abroad with Israeli peers By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Contributing Writer The UF/Israel Dance Exchange is making history. Eleven UF dance students, led by program director Neta Pulvermacher, will spend three weeks studying dance alongside 30 Israeli peers. On Thursday, the group will become the first UF study abroad program in the area of dance, as well as the first UF-sponsored study abroad program in Israel. "Israel's modem-dance scene is considered right now to be the hottest place globally," Pulvermacher said. "[It's] the most innovative country right now as far as modem dance goes." Pulvermacher is excited about what cultural education possibilities the program will provide its students. "It is so important for students at the University of Florida, or at any university really, to be exposed to and truly engaged with other cultures," she said. "Everything in this world is now a hybrid of different cultures and ideas." The students will travel to the Kibbutz Ga'aton in Northern Israel, which is also the home of the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and the Mateh Asher School for the Performing Arts. The trip has personal meaning to Pulvermacher, On who was born in Israel. Campus "It's really nice to take people where you come from, to take your students and share your culture experientially with your students," she said. Jeremy Miranda, a senior dance student, is excited to see how his peers will react to leaving the country for the first time. "It will be interesting to see how quickly their eyes will open to the possibilities and what else is out there." he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 Closing Shop Closing 13th Street Walmart hurts area In spite of the many people who live and work on 13th Street, we could not be more ecstatic about the Gainesville City Commission's vote to allow Walmart to abandon the old location and move forward with a supercenter on 34th Street and U.S. 441. Just look at the place. Its facade is pass, all the fluorescent lighting has yellowed and the tile is so dingy that those welcome mats might as well scoot themselves in front of the exit. It's time to knock it down and pave over it, or better yet, keep it standing as a reminder of how antiquated life was before the supercenter. Never mind that it's the anchor in the neighborhood's economy, and forget all the customers it brings to all the businesses surrounding it. Those stores have had plenty of time to learn how to fend for themselves, and the training wheels had to come off someday. We just wish other businesses would follow Walmart's example and let their buildings slide into dereliction until it becomes convenient for them to cut and run. After all, we cannot expect them to keep the rollbacks coming if they have to factor in renovations and basic maintenance. All kidding aside, closing down the 13th Street Walmart will do immeasurable damage to the area and will likely cause a few other businesses to shut their doors as well. Yet it could easily outperform a supercenter at that location if they slapped a new coat of paint on it and opened a third register once in a while. Poor Judge-ment President Obama announced Elena Kagan as his nominee to replace Justice John Paul Stevens on the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday morning, calling her a "trailblazer," among other things. The president is supposed to make sure the Supreme Court remains steady and insulated from the ebb and flow of American politics, but we are not convinced Kagan is the right woman for the job. Kagan worked as a law professor at the University of Chicago, was the first woman to be the dean of the Harvard Law School and has served as Solicitor General since 2009, yet we cannot help but point out that she has no experience as a judge, federal or otherwise. Sure, Earl Warren never spent a day in a robe until he became chief justice. And sure, he was fundamental in the outcomes of landmark cases such as Brown v. Board of Education and Miranda v. Arizona, but he shifted the court's politics so much that former president Dwight Eisenhower said nominating him was the "biggest damned-fool mistake I ever made." At 50 years old, Kagan would be the youngest person on the Supreme Court, and her tenure could easily outlast those of the other justices. The last thing the court needs is an unknown quantity shaking up the system. Confirming Kagan could be the best, worst or most unmemorable thing the Senate ever votes on, and it is impossible to know looking at her record. Just cross your fingers that Obama doesn't have to borrow that quote from Eisenhower. a ll te independent forida aligao Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

The bill details how government is either forcing people to have coverage or forcing companies to cover them. For a country of free markets, there appears to be a growing number of limitations and rules. Here's the thing: Despite Republicans' adamant protests against the nationalized system, they still want health care for every citizen. My dislike of the nationalized system does not stem from a desire for some to have access to health care and some not. I love my fellow citizens, and they deserve to be provided for if they cannot make it on their own. The key here is "if they cannot make it on their own." The current plan forces working citizens to provide help to people who might not need it. Like many government entitlement programs, it provides coverage for free-riders and people who would take advantage of the system with no oversight. Why? Because that's how the government operates: no-budget, little-oversight programs that make politicians in power look good and pass the cost to citizens. That said, we still need a solution. So, how do we provide for those who truly need help while keeping oversight and accountability? We keep government out of the process. If I were in office, I would work to support reform that provides tax incentives for the operation and support of private, nonprofit organizations working on a local level to support the needy. For example, I used to work for the United Way's Loaned Executive Program. Its mission is to provide programs that support the community, ensure accountability and reduce dependency. Imagine that. ReducBryan Griffin ing dependency is a novel concept to Speaking Out the government. One of the United Way's programs focused on children's dental work. It provided dental work for more than 1,000 children in an area school. Because tooth-related problems are the No. 1 reason for in-class distractions, this program provides health care and builds futures for the participants, eventually allowing them to further their own charity work rather than depend on it. If the government devoted even a fraction of the resources to supporting nonprofits that is does to nationalized health care, imagine what good could be done. We wouldn't be accumulating uncontrollable debt with a plan like this, because it does not require the government to spend but simply reduces the tax burden on citizens who support nonprofits. With a tax cut, nonprofits could potentially operate at lower costs and receive increased financial support. More could open, and every niche that the nonprofit community could fill would be filled. There would be certain areas where the government would have to step in. The health care system cannot entirely rely on private interests. But if we implement a system of programs specialized to local needs with accountability, oversight and supplemental efforts by the government, we could provide health care to citizens who cannot provide for themselves in a more adept and efficient manner. The only trouble with this solution is getting the government to admit when it is unable to do something at optimum efficiency. I wish the government would replace its favorite word, "force," with "efficiency." Then, we might have a sustainable health care system for those who need it.

TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest column Students should know all their rights as apartment renters Students pay anywhere from $200 to $2,000 a month in rent, and what do we get in return? Apartments that are filthy and in disrepair. I had several issues during my tenancy at one particular community. For one, the management was unwilling to repair a broken window. I requested to have it fixed every week for four months, but it never happened. When I retumed from winter break there were dead bugs everywhere in my bedroom. That was my breaking point. I leaked a lot from that experience and would like to share that knowledge with my fellow students. Make sure you keep an accurate record of everything, especially all maintenence requests. Put a date on all records and, if possible, get someone else to sign and date them as well. I'm a picture person, so every time there's an infraction I take a picture. Make sure to keep track of the actual maintenance request forms. When the maintenance staff leaves you that little carbon copy stating it "repaired" something, think of it as evidence instead of trash. Also, make sure you read the lease in its entirety and seek Jessica Martin legal advice before signing it. Attorneys Speaking Out can be wonderful people when they work for you. They can tell you what that fine print means and how it can mean something else in certain situations. They can also tell you what your rights are as a tenant. If you are a full-time UF student, you are entitled to free legal advice from UF's Student Legal Services. Three Rivers Legal Services, a non-profit organization that provides legal services to eligible people in North Florida, is another good resource. Visit their website at You can find landlord-tenant laws by looking up Florida Statutes chapter 83 online. You can also find information about landlord-tenant rights at the This is a great resource, especially if managers at the community are refusing to do any future repairs simply because you filed a complaint. Their refusal may constitute retaliatory action, and you can file a complaint in a court of law. If you think there is a housing code violation, call the Gainesville Code Enforcement Division at 352-334-5030. After discovering the dead bugs in my bedroom, I called them and reported my broken window. They set up an appointment to visit my apartment. They cited the complex for my complaint and other infractions that I wasn't even aware of. Typically, repairs speed up after they contact management but if they aren't made in a timely manner, management could be fined. I admit I didn't listen to my own advice when signing my lease. I assumed that I'd just look at apartment ratings online to see what previous tenants said about apartment complexes and then pick the place that was rated higher. I don't recommend that now. My parting statement is directed at the management and office staff of "typical" college apartment communities: If you are having difficulty leasing apartments, continually need to offer residents "the special" or have disgruntled residents, do not make the mistake of attributing your increase in vacant apartment numbers to the economy. It is because of you that residents choose not to live there. Jessica Martin is studying veterinary medicine at UF. STUDENrS AND PROFESSORS aoTH BE&.4 ro FEE. THE EFPFECrS oF 5WRECLCACEIR CLOSINCS.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 Graphic exhibit teaches crime-scene techniques involving insects CSI, from page 1 tures of dead bodies throughout the exhibit illustrate the role that insects can play in helping investigators determine when and where crimes occur. The presence of fly larvae and eggs in a corpse, for example, can give investigators an idea of how long a person has been dead. Other insects can also be helpful in solving crimes. Investigators in Texas recently convicted a murderer with the help of a dead grasshopper that was found on the victim's body. One of the insect's detached legs was found in the pant cuff of the culprit. Museum curators hope the edgy exhibit will do something that few exhibits have done: attract students. "When I was in college, I had interests that didn't correspond to going to museums," Noble said with a laugh. When more students return to Gainesville for the On fall semester, the muCampus seum's marketing department is planning a large campaign to promote the exhibit, Ramey said. "The purpose of these exhibits is to engage an audience and be educational," he said. Death and decay are common themes for the museum this year. In addition to the CSI exhibit, a timelapse photography display of a decomposing panther head will be exhibited during the fall semester, Ramey said. Starting in the fall, museum entomologists will also put decaying pig carcasses on display in the area behind the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Despite the macabre nature of these exhibitions, the museum is a good place for students to take their significant others, Noble said. "Coming here is a good first date," he said with a laugh. "We're pretty safe." Locker rooms will be -1 closed until August SOUTHWEST REC, from page 1 T" T"E I ITT .next few months. Intramural captain's meetings will be held in the -----------New Engineering Building, Room 202, and the Intramural Sports office was relocated to a trailer outside of the center.

Census data to determine allocation of $400 billion in federal spending CENSUS, from page 1 to base their predictions on, said Stanley K. Smith, director of UF's Bureau of Economic and Business Research. "It also would affect a variety of statistics, such as when you calculate birth, death and crime rates," Smith said. "Those are all based on population counts or estimates, so if you have inaccurate population counts or estimates, then you'll have inaccurate measures for these types of rates. It will give a very misleading idea about an area or population." In addition to allocating funding and political representation, a higher participation in the census gives a more accurate picture of the U.S. population, he said. Janine Monfries, a second-year sociology student, said her dorm required her to fill out the census questionnaire. "[The census bureau] already [has] the commercials showing they are really trying to get the stragglers," said Monfries. 1-2-3 Pam Carpenter Alachua County Supervisor of Elections www.VoteAlachua com (352) 374--5252 the nUf Euery Thursday alligtr Are You Also Tired of the Same 01' Played out Breakfast and Lunch? aIqOW [Doe~ UWoi f yp.& valid M-F $2Two Huge Pancakes $4 $6 Biscuit N Gravy with Egg or Home Fries All-U-Can-Eat Pancakes os 2 Sausage Biscuits with Home Fries or Grits o C1 Steak & Eggs ryS Stuffed Challah French Toast Don't forget Check our menu out online at about our New or get down to 1124 W.

Sports TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 ALLIGATOR Enea breaks SEC home run record -' a THE GATORS FINISHED SECOND IN THE SEC. By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer Every athlete's Senior Day is special, but Francesca Enea took it to a whole new level Sunday. Between capturing the SEC record with her 61st career home run, accepting a surprise marriage proposal, and being honored alongside fellow senior Corrie Brooks before the game, the No. 6 Gators (42-7, 20-4 Southeastern Conference) 9-0 win over South Carolina (11-40, 1-27 SEC) was much more than just another game for Enea. "Just everything with Mother's Day, my family being here, Senior Day, my engagement, it was just amazing," Enea said. Prior to the game both Brooks and Enea walked onto the field with their parents, where their teammates presented them with flowers and each received the traditional framed jersey. As Brooks, Enea, their families and coach Tim Walton posed for a picture, Enea's boyfriend Christian Bruey snuck up behind the group and immediately dropped to a knee. Enea wasted little time before saying yes. All in all, it was an emotional day for everyone involved, and it is clear that Brooks and Enea's leadership will both be missed come next season. "When you look at the two of them, they both played through injury, both played through pain, they both have changed positions, they both have brought a mentality and a work ethic, both were champions coming in to our program and both will leave as champions," Walton said. "They both have just tremendous, tremendous character and a lot of good things that they bring and we're going to miss their leadership qualities day-in and day-out, on and off the field." SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 15 UF outfielder Francesca Enea celebrated Senior Day with her record-breaking 61st career home run. The left fielder also holds the Gators' single-season home run mark with 20 round-trippers. UF BASKETBALL Tyus to return to UF for senior season By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Billy Donovan's squad will have a familiar look to it this upcoming year. The Gators will return all five starters next season after rising senior Alex Tyus withdrew his name from the NBA Draft on Saturday. He announced the return on his Twitter account. "I will be returning to gator nation!! Let's get ready to make a run boys!!!" Tyus said. The power forward started every game last season while averaging 11.8 points on 50.3 percent shooting and grabbing 6.9 rebounds per game. Tyus took a slight step back from his sophomore year when he put up more than 12 points per game on 59 percent shooting. "When I began this process it was with the intent of gathering information to see what I needed to work on to one day compete at the next level, and I believe I have been successful in doing just that," Tyus said in a statement. "I have withdrawn my name from the NBA Draft and look forward to completing my senior year at the University of Florida. We made tremendous strides as a team a year ago that I look forward to continuing to build upon." ESPN's Chad Ford had rated Tyus anywhere from a second-round pick to being undrafted. He would have joined Marreese Speights and Nick Calathes as the third Gator in as many years to declare for the NBA Draft before their senior season. Confusion is the key to s ou have 15 seconds to translate UF doctorate student Andrew Charles Thoron's thesis into plain English. Here's the title: "Effects of InquiryBased Agriscience Instruction on Student Argumentation Skills, Scientific Reasoning and Student Achievement." You probably couldn't do it. And you probably couldn't do it because Thoron, like many doctorate students, was trained to make his work needlessly complicated. But don't blame Thoron. For all you know, he's just like you -illegally downloads music, wastes time on Facebook, watches ESPN. And that's the problem. Sure, elitism is prevalent in the education system's highest levels. But it's just as prevalent at the Worldwide Leader in Sports, a place supposedly sacred to the every man. Hundreds of UF doctorate students wrote thesis papers in the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft. This isn't a coincidence. If you want to learn jargon, look no further than ESPN's talking heads around draft time. Tyler Jett The Jett Stream tjett@alligator org uccess Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are the company's best analysts, but they are also ESPN's pseudo-linguistic experts. And with the draft finished, they now have time to co-author "From Ball Hawk to Tweener: The Upside of Talking like Us," featuring a foreword by Jay Bilas. Here are some excerpts: Ball Skills -Also known as "being able to catch a ball." Example: Ted Ginn Jr. does not have ball skills. Body Catcher -1: A player who can't catch the ball with his hands. Example: Not only does Ted Ginn Jr. not have ball skills, he isn't even a body catcher. 2: A murderer. Football IQ -How well a player understands the sport of football.

Consider it a win that he didn't leave because of another bulging body part. .Dallas Braden's grandmother told A-Rod to "stick it" after he pitched a perfect game Sunday. He should just drop the issue now that he has done something notable with his career.


TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Brombacher pushes consecutive-scoreless streak to 30.2 innings SOFTBALL, from page 14 Although the pregame festivities greatly overshadowed what was to come, the series finale against the Gamecocks resulted in another onesided victory for UF. The Gators continued to dominate offensively, and once again the long ball was a key component in their success. In the bottom of the third, with her team already leading 3-0, Enea took an inside pitch deep to left for her 61st career home run, moving her past Kelly Kretschman for the SEC all-time lead. "It makes me happy, I feel good about it," Enea said. "I wasn't sure how I was going to be at the collegiate level, especially after a tough freshman year, so it just makes me feel Softball good that I was able to bounce back from that bad year." Freshman Kelsey Horton continued the trend by delivering her fifth home run in only 31 career at-bats in the bottom of the fifth, stretching the lead to nine and thus securing a runrule victory. Florida ace Stephanie Brombacher got the win in the circle, allowing just one hit in her five-inning complete-game shutout. The junior has now pitched 30.2 consecutive frames without allowing an earned run and has only surrendered a single hit in her last 11 innings of work. "I think it's important for me to be feeling confident in my pitches," Brombacher said. "I still need to work on some things and get a few pitches right where I want them, so I'm excited that I'm in this groove but I know I still need to get better." TYLER, from page 14 football players usually have high Football IQs. Motor -This word doesn't actually mean anything. It's just fun to say. Example: Look at Ndamukong Suh's motor! I haven't seen a motor like that since I saw Jevon Kearse's motor. And, boy, did he have a great motor. Waist Bender -A straight man's excuse to use a homoerotic term when discussing an athlete. See also: Fluid Hips, Quick Hip Snap, Open Hips, Country Cock Strong. And, because the NBA Draft is just a little more than a month away, don't skip Bilas' foreword, featuring words such as: Considerable Linear Extent in Space Tall. Popability -A basketball player's ability to surprise the defense by shooting. Second Jumpability -You'll have to wait for the actual book for this one because nobody outside of Bilas knows the definition. Whatever second jumpability is, Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley apparently has it in spades. Bilas using ridiculous terms like "considerable linear extent in space" is akin to Thoron saying "Inquiry-Based Agriscience Instruction." For some reason, they justify their work by using as many syllables as possible. Instead, they should focus on simplifying their work to reach common people. The theme of Thoron's paper was teaching students about using science on farms. Kiper, McShay and Bilas talk about sports for a living. Neither topic should be complicated. But, looking at the hundreds of thesis papers written by UF doctorate students this spring, it is clear they are prepared for a world filled with long-winded words. And they are not alone. You, too, can become an elitist if you want. Just keep watching "SportsCenter." Baseball: *The No. 4 Gators baseball team is now tied for the Southeastern Conference lead with South Carolina.
