SG president calls for expansion of free printing


Project is expected to cost $300,000


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Staff Writer

UF Student Body President
Ben Meyers announced an execu-
tive order to form a Free Printing
Task Force at a student senate
meeting Tuesday night.
Meyers, who assumed the po-
sition of Student Body President
earlier this month, said expand-
ing free printing for students was
one of his top platform points.
"Right now, we have the third
floor of the Reitz Union," Mey-
ers said in an interview after the
meeting. "You can go there and


wait in a 45-minute line. My goal
is to have [free printing] every-
where."
He said the measure is easier
said than done.
Expanding printing privileg-
es means expanding computer
labs, which means more money.
Meyers said he expects that por-
tion of the project to cost about
$300,000.
The project would be funded
out of the Activities and Services
fee, which is used to fund a van-
ety of campus projects, organiza-
tions and events.
Another part of the new free


printing process would be a real-
location of paper resources.
Currently, each student has a
300-page print-
ing quota per
semester. Mey-
ers wants to
eliminate the
quota and in-
stead give stu-
dents unlimited
Meyers printing from a
central pot.
That means students who have
500-page projects due at the end
of the semester can print them all
using university resources, since


a student who takes all online
classes wouldn't be using his or
her 300 pages.
Officials will debate whether a
central printing pot can meet the
students' demands. They face the
question of whether student fees
would have to be raised.
Meyers said he is unsure
whether central printing is the
solution, and the committee is
charged with findingthat solution.
At the meeting Tuesday, the
senate voted in 21 temporary
senators, each of whom will fill
the void left by senators leaving
for parts of the summer.
Eighteen temporary seats and
three permanent seats remain un-
filled.


UF PRINTING FACTS

* Current quota: 300
pages per student

* Meyers wants to elimi-
nate the quota, allowing
students uncapped print-
ing from a common pool of
pages.

* Cost Estimate: $300,000

* The SG printing lab is
located on the third floor of
the Reitz Union.


Coalition calls


for repeal of


meal limit

By DANIELA GUZMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

As a great-great-grandson of a secretary of war, grand-
son of the drafter of the Nagasaki bombings and son of a
minuteman missile operator, Keith McHenry, 54, has deep
roots in American war history.

"I feel like I have a responsibility to return
America to a democracy, if it ever was one."
Keith McHenry
Food Not Bombs founder

With a namesake entrenched in U.S. military conflict, he
feels compelled to walk another path. He is an international
peace activist.
He was one of several members of The Coalition to End
the Meal Limit NOW! who rallied Wednesday afternoon
at the farmers market in Bo Diddley Plaza in downtown
Gainesville.
"I feel like I have a responsibility to return America to a
democracy, if it ever was one," McHenry explained during
a recent presentation at the Civic Media Center.
The coalition is a collective initiative to get the 130-meal
limit at St. Francis House. The coalition is proposing to
change the cap to a three-hour block of time in which meals
can be served.

Neb. police arrest 2 from Missouri on grease theft
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police in Nebraska say
they've nabbed a pair of suspected grease thieves,
thanks in part to the smell of old french fries.
Christy Harris, of Everton, Mo., and Jesse Moore, of
Springfield, Mo., are charged with larceny. They're sus-
pected of siphoning used cooking oil from a bin outside
a Lincoln restaurant. Police think they may be involved
in several other grease thefts. Harris and Moore were
arrested early Wednesday after police stopped a pickup
truck hauling a big tank. Officers say the tank smelled
like "old, stale french fries."

NATIONAL
Yale suspends embattled
frat for sexist chants
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A
prestigious Yale fraternity is be-
ing banned from recruiting and
holding activities on campus for
five years after pledges were or-
dered to chant obscenities against
women.
Yale says it has also disciplined
several Delta Kappa Epsilon
members and asked the fraterni-
ty's national office to suspend the
chapter for five years.
The fraternity, which was
founded at Yale in 1855, came un-
der fire in October after pledges
marched through campus and
chanted phrases about sex acts
including necrophilia. Chapter
leaders later apologized, and the
fraternity's national office in Ann
Arbor, Mich., ordered them to
stop all pledge activities.
Yale says the discipline was
necessary to ensure "an educa-
tional environment free from ha-
rassment and intimidation."

fice, said he was surprised and
disappointed Yale made the an-
nouncement because he thought
the negotiations were confiden-
tial. He said the fraternity had
dealt with the matter internally
by placing the chapter on proba-
tion, ceasing its pledging activi-
ties immediately and develop-
ing a new pledging process.
"We know it was in poor
taste," Lanpher said of the in-
cident. "We don't advocate
what they said. We believe
that the chapter's behavior has
changed."

LOCAL

At general store, customers come for mail, memories


By ALEX ORLANDO
Alligator Staff Writer

The locals come for their mail and a
place to get out of the sun. Out-of-towners
come to show knee-high passengers the life
their great-granddaddies once knew.
Time, like U.S. Highway 441 and later
1-75, has passed Evinston by.
Driving down County Road 225, a slim,
rough road with faded lane markers, 20
minutes south of Gainesville, you barely
know you're there before you've passed it.
Since 1884, every one of Evinston's
houses, Victorian-era buildings that stand
in cattle pastures along the road, has been
accounted for by 92 brass post boxes lining
a wall in the Wood and Swink Old Store
and Post Office.
Out front, it looks like a typical Florida
cracker house with a tin roof and pine walls.
Most of the time, one or more of the locals
are on the front porch, perched in the shade
atop a long bench.
Inside stands a rusty red Coca-Cola
cooler, a store-length counter and the wom-
an who worked 32 years as Evinston's post-
master, Wilma Sue Brown Wood with her
husband, Freddie Wood Jr.
Outside the store's pine-shuttered win-
dows, the Woods have seen change. The
wagons that pulled up to the store have
been replaced with SUVs and hybrids.
They've seen young ones, who toddled
into the store for sweets, grow up and bring
their own children in.
Change hasn't hit so quickly inside the
store. Bubble gum still goes for 3 cents. A
can of Coke costs 60 cents. A 1950s cash reg-
ister still chirps from the corner.
Cash or check only. No cards.
The only change, a rise in the town's


population, is tallied on the front wall.
Starting with 25 tiny brass post boxes, the
Woods had to install 83 more over the years
for 108 boxes. Ninety-two are still in use.
The Woods know all the box's owners by
first name.
By 7:30 every morning, Brown Wood is
in the store, fling letters into their respec-
tive boxes. She strings up the Stars and
Stripes on a pine flag pole, just off the front
porch, then waits for customers to trail in.
In her time at the store, she can only re-
member one instance when she showed up
late for work. That was when 200 head of
cattle, loose from a nearby farm, blocked
her way to the door.
"I just got out and hollered at them," she


said. "They moved."
From noon to 2 p.m., she heads back to
the farm, where she meets Freddie to make
him a ham and cheese sandwich. Then it's
back to the store to wait on customers until
4 p.m.
She's done all of this for 32 years without
air conditioning or heat ventilation. In the
summer, she opens the store for the winds
that whip off Orange Lake.
On winter days, it's common to find her
v 1:.11....1 up behind the counter. The cold
bothers her.
Most of the time, her customers are the
ones who pop in and out for mail and to
share stories. Tourists come on weekends,
usually led by friendly recommendation.


Alex Orlando/ Alligator
Freddie Wood Jr., a volunteer at the Wood and Swink Old Store and Post Office, waits
for customers next to a portrait of himself.


But a few dozen customers buying
goods at half their market value isn't going
to keep the doors open.
On a good year, it's barely enough to
meet operating costs.
After Wilma retired a year ago, Evinston
has been hard-pressed to find another post-
master- someone who is willing to bear
the summer heat under the hot tin roof.
Right now, Scarlett Kineler, Post Master Re-
lief, runs the office temporarily. The Woods
run the store on a volunteer basis.
The next postmaster will be appointed
by the U.S. Postal Service, but the Woods
say they want to make it easier for whoever
gets the job.
Freddie Wood III, the couple's son, said
the renovations could be thought of as a
$50,000 act of southern hospitality.
Those renovations include central air
and heat, restrooms, a handicap ramp,
wood-plank floors and windows and a
glass alcove.
Wood remembers working in the store
when he was about 10 years old. He's 45
now, but even he can recall horses and bug-
gies pulling up to the store.
Woodward Coleman, a stooped-over old
man who lived up the road, couldn't see
well enough to drive his truck into town,
so he would drive his mule-drawn wagon
every day to pick up his mail.
Wood tells that story to customers who
linger and will probably tell it to his 2-year-
old son, Freddie Wood IV.
That's why he said the store should be
maintained and protected from any buy-
ers.
"It would be a shame to have that hap-
pen with all the history that's here," he said.
"Things like that would just disappear if
they weren't told to people who come in."


From cosmic to calamari; UF


prof's squids go to space


* TENTACLED CREATURES USED
FOR RESEARCH ON BACTERIA AND
HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM

By EMILY MORROW
Alligator Writer

Three baby squid aboard the space shut-
tle Endeavor had 24 hours to enjoy outer
space before they - and the experiment
they were a part of - were terminated.
Those 24 hours were all UF assistant
professor Jamie Foster needed to get the
results she's looking for - results that may
shed light on the effects of microgravity on
astronaut health.
Foster used bobtail squid, a species that
has a symbiotic relationship with the bac-
teria Vibrio fischeri, as a model for similar
relationships between bacteria and the hu-
man body.
Astronauts often experience weakened
immune systems as a result of space trav-
el.
Previous research has shown that dis-
ease-causing bacteria can become more
harmful in space, but Foster seeks to exam-
ine the effects of space on the body's "good"
bacteria, such as the bacteria essential for
digestion or immune-system responses.


"Do good bacteria go bad?" she asked.
Bobtail squid use bacteria from their en-
vironment to produce light, which help the
squid avoid predators by enabling them to
move through the water without casting a
shadow.
The three squid aboard the shuttle were
placed in saltwater-filled, Sharpie-sized
tubes.
Astronaut Greg Chamitoff added the
bacteria to the squids' en-
UF vironment once the shut-
Academics tle entered orbit.
After enough time had
passed for the squid to absorb the bacteria,
Chamitoff added a preservative, killing the
squid and preserving their bodies for Fos-
ter's dissection upon the shuttle's return
June 1.
Bacteria make up 90 percent of cells in
the human body. Foster's squid will help
scientists understand how the stresses of
space travel affect those cells.
"The ultimate goal is to pro-
tect their health and reduce any risks
for astronauts who may be up there
for weeks, even months," she said.
Foster will replicate the experiment and
send another three squid to space with the
space shuttle Atlantis on its launch, set for
early July.


New dean announced


for college of agriculture


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Staff Writer

The UF College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences announced ear-
lier this week that Teresa Balser will
serve as its new dean.
The college launched a nation-
wide search and narrowed its search
to four candidates before deciding
on Balser, said Jack Payne, UF's se-
nior vice president for agriculture
and natural resources.
Balser, who previously served at
the University of Wisconsin-Madi-
son, is the first woman dean of the
college, he said.
Payne said he selected Balser be-
cause she possessed a passion for
innovation in education, which fell
in line with his vision.
"You know how they used to say,
'If it ain't broke, don't fix it?'" he
said. "Well, in my mind, if it ain't
broke, let's make it better."
In an interview Wednesday, Bals-
er said her goal is to make education
less of a one-size-fits-all experience.


"I want students to learn things
the way that we naturally learn new
things," she said. "It's not normal to
sit in a classroom and memorize a
giant textbook. It's not how people
learn things in the real world."
She said she wants to have stu-
dents identify their career goals
early on and find something that
works for them. She suggested hav-
ing students take
smaller seminar
courses early on or
try learning in the
field and focus on
why students are
learning the ma-
terial. However,
Balser she's leaving it
open for debate.
"I don't have all the ideas," she
said. "I have some, but [I want to
say] to students,'What do you think
will work for you?'"
Balser will officially begin her
work July 1 but won't arrive to
campus until later because she is
currently looking for a house in the
area.

Local Starbucks loses steam, set to close Sunday


Alex Orlando /Alligator
The Starbucks on 3822 Newberry Road and 39th Street will close May 22.


By MICHAEL SYKES
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Starbucks store located at 3822
Newberry Road and 39th Street is sched-
uled to close on May 22, according to
an email from Kristin Hill, a Starbucks
spokeswoman.
Hill would not say why the store is
closing.
Yvette Little, 22, a UF health science
graduate, said she doesn't know why
the 39th Street store would close.
"It's always packed when I'm here,"
she said.
Little said she visits the store often to
use the Internet and have a cup of cof-
fee, always bringing her own creamer.
Little is a massage therapist at A Better
Massage on Northwest 43rd Street and
said the Starbucks is the most conve-
nient place for her to use the Internet
while she's on call for work.
Matt Cohen, 25, and Jonathan Trinas-


tic, 27, doctoral students at UF, like the
store because it's not as busy as some of
the others, which might be why it's clos-
ing, they said.
"I know [being slow] is bad for busi-
ness," Cohen said. "But it's why I like
coming to this Starbucks, that and the
baristas."
"It's always packed when I'm
here."
Yvette Little
UF health science graduate

Workers at the Newberry Road Star-
bucks near the Oaks Mall said the loca-
tion of the 39th store is too difficult to see
because the store is heavily surrounded
by trees and other buildings.
Workers said most of the employees
from the 39th Street store will work at
the other Starbucks locations, and some
have already started taking shifts there.


Picketers call for three-hour window instead of 130-meal limit


RALLY, from page 1

Local supporters marched to
the Paradigm Properties offices on
Main Street Wednesday to protest
what Nathan Collier, owner of par-
ent company Collier Companies,
has chosen to be his public stance on
feeding the homeless in the down-
town area.
The coalition and other citizens
said they are upset over an email
Collier sent to the City Commis-


sion in March with the subject line,
"PLEASE keep Downtown Meal
Limit! Vagrants are a serious, on-
going problem at Arlington Square
Apartments downtown."
The coalition believes that devel-
opers have been influential in keep-
ing the meal limit, even after the City
Plan Board prompted the City Com-
mission in March to replace it for the
three-hour block alternative.
"It's not just for the homeless,
it's the working poor that need to
be fed," said Trisha Ingle, a picketer

Bankrupt

Once again, Scott takes

aim at education system

In the wake of one of the most dysfunctional and ego-
driven legislative sessions in state history, our state's
Criminal-in-Chief and Voldemort stunt-double Rick
Scott announced earlier this week that the efforts from
his Hollywood-haired, Reagan-idolizing minions to hack
away at Florida's budget didn't quite go as far as he would
have liked.
With a budget that's about $4 billion lighter, the Prince
of Darkness still wants to find "additional savings." One of
his targets: state university and college building projects.
We understand that this state cannot afford to ride a
gravy train of taxpayer revenue given the current eco-
nomic climate and its affect on the Sunshine State. This
is a recession and sacrifices need to be made. However,
Scott's decision to once again take a swing at Florida's uni-
versity system illustrates an ideologically driven pseudo-
politico's disenchantment with reality. For an educational
system that, through poor management and oversight, al-
ready has one foot in the grave and the other one slipping,
this move represents another kick to the crutch by state
government.
If there is one person who would probably love to de-
liver Sweet Chin Music to Slick Rick, it's Bernie Machen.
He already faces the tall task of finding a way to bridge
a deficit that stands at $33 million, following proposed
tuition hikes, without laying off any personnel or cutting
any programs. Now he faces the prospect of having Tal-
lahassee further tightening its purse strings.
We don't say this often, but we feel for Bernie.
Our hearts don't bleed at the thought of losing out on
another magnificent stroke of architecture. It's the message
behind the governor's move that troubles us. He has once
again demonstrated a gross sense of apathy toward the
state's higher education system. Through his numerous
stumbles in logic, he believes that turning a cold shoulder
to the public university system will somehow expedite his
pledge to create private sector jobs.
If the governor was truly serious about "additional
savings," he would focus his financial crosshairs on the
numerous pet projects of those who have been charged
to write our laws. If he wanted to show the state his no-
nonsense approach to our state's ability to toss taxpayer
money like Pacman Jones at the "scrip club," he would
wield his hatchet against some of his most loyal apostles,
the ones who think government has grown to the size of a
Macy's Thanksgiving Day balloon.
But surely that wouldn't be the most politically sav-
vy thing for our governor to do. In fact, it would just be
downright inconvenient. One could even got as far as to
call it - wait for it - "common sen--."
Oh wait, we forgot. You don't say that when speaking
of the Great Carnival at the Capitol.
So instead, on behalf of all the universities who are feel-
ing the cold hand of the Dark Lord growing tighter around
their necks, we are going to extend a highly-cultivated,
well-educated, double-fisted, "line-item-this" middle-fin-
ger salutes toward Tallahassee.
If things keep going the way our state government
wants them, it will be the only thing that both they and
our students will be able to read.

Interventionism is
imagine waking up disoriented from the bright glare of a
flashlight and the sound of snarling dogs and foreigners
ripping you, your spouse and your children out of bed.
In the United States, we'd think this was a home invasion,
but in Afghanistan, this scene is a commonplace nighttime
raid by our troops, another callous example of American in-
terventionism.
Liberals pulled us into Libya because Gadhafi was
"poised" to murder all the dissenters. What direct beneft is
our intervention to the U.S. taxpayers? More importantly,
why are we dropping bombs when Congress did not declare
war? Many liberals turn this into a humanitarian issue, but
the United States is not the world's big brother. I understand
some feel we cannot idly sit by, but my taxes support the
American government. Every dollar siphoned to "saving"
foreigners is a dollar siphoned from our schools, infrastruc-
ture or research.
On the other side of the aisle, Republicans, beholden to
the military-industrial complex, advocate a worldview that
appoints the United States to maintain order in the world.
With election season heating up, I'm sure many Republicans
testing out the presidential waters are sure to talk about Iran.
"We'll bomb their facilities," they'll say, "because it is unac-
ceptable for Iran to have a nuke."
Perhaps Iran is acting defensively. Perhaps they are wor-
ried about us; we do have a track record of overthrowing
their government. We do have troops on both sides of Iran.
Contrary to what Fox News tells us, Iran does not pose a
threat to the very existence of the United States.
Rep. Ron Paul often preaches about the concept of blow-
back, the idea that when we try to impose our will on for-
eign lands we will suffer unforeseen externalities. A prime
example would be the Iranian coup in 1953, which helped
set up the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the installment of
the current anti-West regime in Iran. According to Paul, they
don't hate us over there because we're fat or rich; they hate us
because we try to impose our will everywhere. The United

It wasn't until the Spanish-American War in 1898 that non-
interventionism was defenestrated.
Military intervention is a red herring to avert attention
from the real problems facing our nation. It is not up to us
to fix other countries, yet politicians seem to find it easier to
invade half of the Middle East than get our fiscal house in
order.
In the end, it comes down to dollars and cents. With our
national debt approaching the gross domestic product, we
cannot afford nonessential military intervention. The loss of
life anywhere is unfortunate, but unless our national security
is at extreme risk, we ought to think long and hard before
dropping bombs.
Our nation is many things: the lab for scientific innova-
tion, the cultural trendsetter and a global beacon of hope. It
should not sink to the level of schoolyard bully. Any politi-
cian arguing for the need to intervene in the affairs of others
is full of hot air.
We have much bigger fish to fry. Instead, politicians
should focus on balancing the budget, paying off our debt,
attracting manufacturing jobs, revamping public education,
and improving the economy to ensure the 21st century will
be another American century.

Letter to the Editor
Gov. Scott should be impeached
Gov. Rick Scott needs to go. In his
first few months of office he has single-
handedly killed the best opportunity
this state had for economic develop-
ment and job growth, further destroyed
our education system, attempted to bal-
ance the state's budget on the backs of
our middle class and much more. Or
should I say so much less? He is the
most corrupt American politician since
Boss Tweed and is twice as creepy look-
ing. Like Tammany Hall, he needs to be
eliminated. The high-speed rail would
have brought about 24,000 jobs to our
state, one of the hardest hit states by the
recession. It also would have marked
an economic and technological step
forward. Scott opposed and effectively
slaughtered the rail for pure petty poli-
tics.
Scott ran for governor under one
promise: jobs. Yet he destroyed the first
and best opportunity he had to keep
that promise. He let down the 2,619,335
people who agreed with his vision and
voted for him in November. The liber-
als in this state and those who support-
ed the rail shouldn't be the most upset


citizens right now. The unemployed
voters who gave Scott a percentage-
point victory over Alex Sink should be.
Furthermore, he has balanced Florida's
troubled budget on the backs of the
middle class and the people who put
him in office. Cutting teacher's pen-
sions and putting the education of our
posterity at risk is not a Republican
thing to do. Florida is now the most fru-
gal state when it comes to helping the
unemployed.
As a state, we shouldn't mope over
Scott's past injuries upon our liveli-
hoods, our children and our democracy.
It is time we join State Rep. Rick Krise-
man's efforts to pass a bill in the Florida
legislature that would allow us to recall
state officials. As of now, the only way
to get rid of Scott is through impeach-
ment. If his abuses continue, we should
not forget about that option. This man is
a million dollars more corrupt than Ber-
nie Madoff and would probably lose a
re-election to him. Why suffer until
2014? Let's eliminate the dark storm
over the Sunshine State now!

Self-image and the scale: the henchmen of eating disorders


As I was placing my weekly necessities on the conveyor
belt at Sweetbay one morning, I glanced at the maga-
zines begging for my attention in front of me. Of course,
I noticed the emaciated, indeterminate women on the covers
and was forced to wonder, "Are these people even real?" Actu-
ally, with today's photo manipulation, they often are not.
I was especially bemused by the comments plastered over
the magazines I looked at. One announced the breaking news of
a celebrity who had gained 20 pounds. Unbelievable, I know.
It is often said that women are oppressed in certain foreign
countries. Indeed, some foreign countries deny equality, basic
rights and lifestyle options to women. This is an unfortunate
reality.
What is not said is that women are also subjugated inAmer-
ican society. No longer are women domineered by a lack of
voting rights or career options. Instead, their emotions are held
hostage by something more personal: their body image.
The body image issues that plague Hollywood have spread
throughout the country. The slender, interchangeable bodies
that are force-fed through television, magazines and movies

letters@alligator org session.
The South Carolina Department of
Mental Health estimates that 7 million
American women suffer from an eating disorder. Of all mental
illnesses, eating disorders are most fatal. College women are
especially at risk. A study by Kalodner and Scarano found that
85 percent of college women believe they are overweight. Less
than a third of them actually are. A study by Polivy and Her-
man found that the development of eating disorders appears
to be influenced by sociocultural factors. Similar studies show
that exposure to mass media is correlated with negative body
image and eating disorders.
Eating disorders affect entire families. I am but one of mil-
lions who have witnessed a loved one fight through an eating


disorder. Make no mistake, these eating disorders are personal
mental health disorders.
Don't get me wrong; remaining fit is a vital part of a healthy,
fulfilling lifestyle. Being skinny, however, is not necessarily
healthy nor is it a reasonable health goal. It is simply the arbi-
trary, current demand society has placed on women.
This demand has transformed throughout history. In the
past, some cultures viewed larger figures as most desirable
in women. Skinny is nothing more than the new "pleasantly
plump."
And here's a secret they might not tell you: You won't be
any happier at a lighter weight than you are now. A 2001 study
by Hoyt and Kogan found that underweight, normal weight
and overweight women were all equally likely to be satisfied -
or unsatisfied - with their weight.
Don't ditch the gym, though. It is good for your health.
Thin, average or plump - it really doesn't matter. Your weight
won't define your happiness. Your own body image is all that's
important.

The Tech Effect: Cyberdyne makes cyborgs a reality


By CARTER LYLES
avenue columnist


In 1984, America was introduced to Cyber-
dyne through the science fiction film "The Ter-
minator" Now, more than 30 years later, we're
getting to know a new Cyberdyne.
Cyberdyne Inc. of Japan has created a new
technology which it hopes will be applied to vari-
ous fields of rehabilitation support, physical train-
ing, heavy labor support and rescue support at
disaster sites.
Cyberdyne's achievement is named HAL (Hy-
brid Assistive Limb), a robotic suit that allows the
wearer to augment their daily activities through
its unique biosignal sensors that detect finite
movements of the voluntary control system.
Simply put, HAL reads the most imperceptible
signals that are given off from the skin when we
are preparing to move, and interprets those sig-
nals into electronic cues that allow HAL to move
with you, rather than move for you.
Developed by Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai of
the University of Tsukuba, HAL provides a revo-
lutionary step in aiding both para- and quadriple-
gic patients as well as giving the extra strength
that relief and rescue workers may need in times
of disaster. The suit allows the wearer to lift 88
pounds more than what he could normally lift
and aids the endurance of the occupant by tak-


ing the strain off the human form and placing it
on the robot's hydraulics.
Yet however benevolent the intentions of the


creators of HAL are, the situation is still ironic.
In the "Terminator" franchise, the machines
refer to themselves as cyborgs, as "living tis-


Cyberdyne Inc. of Japan is taking cyborg technology to a new level with their HAL suit.


sue over a metal endoskeleton." The irony here
is that the Series 800 Model 101s that Arnold
Schwarzenegger portrayed are machine on the
inside, human on the outside. In reality, HAL is
the outer machine covering that protects the liv-
ingtissue of the human inside.
As stated in promotional videos, "[HAL is]
the attempt to unite human with machine ... In
other words, cyborg technology's breakthrough
has been expected, all over the world." Even in
Forbes magazine, HAL is being lauded as the
"Rise of the Cyborg"
It's no secret that one of the underlying goals
of technology these days is to unite human with
machine. Just look at recent breakthroughs such
as the iPad and even something as simple as
TiVo. Integration is the name of the game, and
both Cyberdyne and Yoshiyuki Sankai recognize
this.
"My basic motivation is to develop devices
to enhance and expand human ability," Sankai
said.
As of today, the unit (and its newest iteration,
the lighter and leaner lower-body suit which was
showcased at this year's International Forum on
Cybernics) is available for rental at the rate of
$2,200 per month and must be recharged every
five hours.
But for all the Tony Stark wannabes, the
chance to feel like Iron Man is priceless.

Summer A is in full swing, and
what have you done so far - nursed
your hangovers and lain out by the
pool? While this seems like all we're
doing these days, there are tons of fun
things to do in and out of Gainesville
that you haven't done every day for the
past two weeks.
Here are some fun ideas for what-
ever you feel like doing with your day.
Playing:


Bob's River Place
All the way out in Dixie County,
Bob's River Place is about a 40-min-
ute trip from Gainesville, but it's worth
everysecond. Bob's has floatingdocks
and rope swings galore, ranging from
amateur to the fear-inducing "Demon."
Admission is $15 a carload for a daily
pass, or $55 a carload for an annual
pass. Bob's is a fun and relaxing place,
but you'll have to come prepared for
the day because no food is sold. Bob's
Myspace page (myspace.com/dixieco-

Chilling:
Ginnie Springs
Ginnie Springs is one of the most
popular spots for Gators to cool off.
Students can tube down the river, see
the seven springs dotted
Stuff throughout the route,
S kayak, snorkel and even
scuba dive. The best
part is that Ginnie is
a campground too, so you can bring
some friends and stay for the week-
end. Admission is $12 for each adult
and $20.40 to go camping. You can


visit ginniespringsoutdoors.com to get
directions and more info.
Grooving:
Free Fridays
From May to October, the Bo
Diddley Community Plaza offers Free
Friday every Friday night from 8-10
p.m. Local bands and performing arts
groups perform for free, so you can
grab your blanket or lawn chair and
enjoy some free entertainment! The
plaza is on the corner of SE First Street
and University Avenue in downtown.
Water Sporting:


Lake Wauburg
A favorite among UF students, Lake
Wauberg is free for anyone with a
valid Gator 1 Card. It offers water ski-
ing, wakeboarding sailing, boating,
a climbing wall, disc golf, picnicking,
sand volleyball and football. The North

day through Friday, and the South
Shore is open from 1-6 p.m. Both ar-
eas are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Local punkers Protagonist release "States" EP


By KATHLEEN BOYLE
avenue writer


It doesn't take much for one to realize the
Gainesville music scene is heavily submersed in
punk rock.
From DIY basement shows to The Fest, it's ev-
ident that Gators love their rock'n'roll fast and ag-
gressive. Much like the draw of UF, the Gainesville
scene also attracts bands from across Florida
and beyond.
Originally forming in Boca Raton in 2001, Pro-
tagonist is a five-piece melodic punk band whose
ties to Gainesville have never been stronger.
This month the band put out its fourth release,
a five-song EP entitled "States" produced by Ste-
phen Egerton of The Decendents. "States" was
released on Gainesville-based label Paper +
Plastick Records.
With a current lineup consisting of brothers
Peter and John Marullo, Brian Forst, Marcus Kora
and Kyle MacDougall, Protagonist is a true testa-
mentto the successes of hardworking, dedicated
musicians.
Emancipating a whirlwind of crazy fast riffs,
pounding drum beats and anxious group cho-
ruses, "States" has proved once again that punk
rock is definitely not dead. Even though all the
songs on "States" clock in at less than four min-
utes, this duration shouldn'tfool you into thinking
the EP isn't worth your time.
The opening title track instantly blasts you


into a cyclonic hypnosis as thick palm-muted gui-
tar progressions and accelerated rhythm are fun-
neled around strong, impacting vocal harmonies
and shouts


Never lacking in energy, "States" offers lis-
teners an abundance of adrenaline without
sounding sloppy or overly pessimistic. Rather,
the lyricism delivers insightful reflections that will

strike a chord with anytwenty-something listener,
heightened further by Peter Marullo's exceptional
vocal capabilities.
Like a true protagonist, the band was faced
with many conflicts while recording this EP. Gui-
tarist Brian Forst revealed that both the songwrit-
ing processes and studio sessions were met with
obstacles. He said the band members are now
spread out around the country.
"Writing processes have shifted to rely on vid-
eo chats, Garage Band files and lengthy emails,"
Forst said. "We only played the songs on 'States'
together about twice before going into the studio,
so this one really came together during the re-
cording process."
The band was also met with a most unfortu-
nate awakening the morning of their first record-
ing session - all of Protagonist's equipment was
stolen the night before they went into the studio.
"We got in our van, threw every piece of equip-
ment we owned in our trailer and made the long
drive, getting to town and checking into a hotel
the night before we were scheduled to record,"
Forst explained. "In the morning when we head-
ed to the van to drive to the studio we realized
that our trailer was stolen. Needless to say, it was
devastating."
Fortunately for the band and listeners alike,
the recording of "States" was able to unfold,
culminating in an EP that audibly engulfs these

Spanish Gamble leave Gainesville confines for world tour


By KELLY RICHARD
avenue writer


Perhaps no band embodies the
punk tradition in which Gainesville
is steeped better than Spanish Gam-
ble.
Butthe locally based band leftthe
sun-soaked confines of Gainesville
in April to embark on an extensive
European tour.
The band, comprised of vocalist/
guitarist Colin Shane, bassist Ryan


Weber, guitarist Randy Reddell and
drummer James Perez, released a
full-length album entitled "It's All
Coming Down" in February 2010 on
Paper + Plastick Records.
Weber said he met Paper +
Plastickfounder Vinnie Fiorello when
Fiorello's band, Less Than Jake,
placed an order with Weber's skate-
board production company. While
on tour, Weber called Fiorello and a
domino effect led Spanish Gamble to
eventually sign to Paper + Plastick.


While in Europe, the band has
played with a variety of groups. One
of their favorite shows was playing
in Bristol, U.K., with Dead To Me, OK
Pilot, The Arteries and others, where
Spanish Gamble went crazy during
Dead To Me's performance.
Reddell continued to say Span-
ish Gamble is treating the tour like
a vacation. Although they don't have
much downtime with traveling and
performing nearly every day, they try
to meet and have drinks with locals


after every show.
As a touring band, Weber said
it's a great feeling to know they have
support all around the world.
"To be over here in Europe and
know our music took us here is un-
believable," Weber said.
While overseas, Weber is also in
the process of booking a 50-day U.S.
tour any time he can get an Internet
connection. That do-it-yourself ethic
is what has always kept Spanish
Gamble relevant.


When the band returns from Ger-
many, it will start a new stateside run
of datesjust two hours after touching
down on the New York City tarmac.
Even though touring life for a
punk band can be difficult, Spanish
Gamble wouldn't change anything
for the world. Weber said they want
to stay out on the road as much as
possible
"Someday we want to tour Japan,
that's for sure!"

Numbers are important.
In this technological age,
where the Internet is the prime
market for business dealings, compa-
nies obsess over the numbers their
website draws. Websites can be made
or broken by advertisers who want to
promote products on websites with the
highest hits and unique visitors every
month.
In the social networking arena, the
number of users a website has is the
standard. Gainesville-based streaming
service Grooveshark is no exception to
that rule.


Since its start in 2007, Groove-
shark has made a name for itself in
digital music. Offering a preferable
alternative to websites like Pandora,
Grooveshark gives users more free-
dom in what music to listen to.
On May 9, Grooveshark registered
its 10 millionth user. A lofty number
to be sure, but behind the number is
something more real and tangible.
Founders Sam Tarantino, Josh
Greenberg and Andres Barreto, three
former UF undergrads, might have
dreamed of turning their project into a
global presence fouryears ago, butpre-
dicting Grooveshark's success around
the globe would have been nearly im-
possible for those who watched the


Thomas Nassiff
Avenue Editor
Twitter @ThomasNassiff


site grow.
Groove-
shark's mile-
stone is not
only an impor-
tant moment
in the history
of the com-
pany, which
celebrated
by streaming
an in-office


countdown live on Ustream, but an
important day for a historic Gainesville
music culture.
Gainesville's punk and indie DIY
scene is one that has been well-doc-
umented by a lineage of prominent


bands. Aside from spawning groups
that have found success like Against
Me!, Less Than Jake and Hot Water
Music, Gainesville is currently home to
two prominent indie labels in No Idea
and Paper + Plastick Records.
Grooveshark is an example of a
website that was built with a DIY men-
tality, a strong work ethic and a knowl-
edge of what music listeners want in a
streaming service. Its global presence
is another testament to the success
of Gainesville's breeding ground, and
Tarantino, Greenberg and Barreto
have earned every single one of the
numbers their website leans on.
Although not as widely known as
Pandora (which hit 50 million users


in 2010), Grooveshark definitely of-
fers the better product from a purely
streaming perspective. Users can play
any specific song or artist as much
as they like as opposed to Pandora's
music genome that maps artists and
songs together on radio stations.
From this music listener's perspec-
tive, Grooveshark is the way to go. Not
only would you be supporting a local
business by signing up for an account
with Grooveshark, you'd be getting an
excellent product and would become
part of an exciting chapter in the web-
site's story.
Because even though it has just
reached new heights, Grooveshark is
only goingto go up from here.


Grooveshark reaches milestone with 10 million users


By KELLY RICHARD
avenue writer

In September 2009, Grooveshark registered its one millionth
unique user.
A year later, the Gainesville-based music streaming website
jumped to five million users.
On May 9, people around the globe watched as Grooveshark
climbed to its greatest heights yet via a Ustream countdown. At
about 5 p.m. that day, the website had reached more than 10 mil-
lion users.
Founders Sam Tarantino, Josh Greenberg and Andres Barreto
launched Grooveshark in 2007 as undergraduates at UF. The web-


site is an on-demand music service, operating like a digital jukebox
where users can search any song they feel like listening to and

As proven by the numbers, the website is ex-
panding, and with greater success comes more
recognition in the press. Time magazine named
Grooveshark one of the 50 best websites of
2010.
W "The Time accolade was really awesome,
and I think the big benefit of things in [larger
publications] is that it gets the name out to a demographic that
otherwise might not hear about it," spokesman Ben Westermann-
Clark said.


Grooveshark's main demographic lies in teenagers and college-
aged students in their early 20s. Another contributing aspect to
Grooveshark's big numbers is its presence outside the United
States, specifically in Canada and South America.
"Most of these places aren't offered any other legal music
streaming service, so their only options are piracy and Groove-
shark," Westermann-Clark said. "We're happy to be able to give
people the option not to steal music, even outside the U.S."
Grooveshark isn't done growing just yet. Westermann-Clark
said the site plans to apply integration between artists and users,
encouraging communication between the two.
In four years, Grooveshark has grown exponentially. A party for
the 50-million milestone could be just around the corner.

This part-time, entry level position primar-

publications for our clients using HTML, CSS
and basic image manipulation. We code web-
sites by hand (no visual website generators
such as Frontpage), so at least entry level
to intermediate HTML and CSS skills are re-
quired. Graphic design and layout skills may
be helpful, but are not necessary since most
of the work involves adding content to exist-
ing websites. About 20 hours per week with
flexible scheduling. The position does have
the potential for long term growth into other
positions within our company.

Freshmen trio looks to lead UF in NCAA Regionals


By BRYAN HOLT
Alligator Writer


A year ago, Cheyenne Coyle,
Kasey Fagan and Hannah Rogers
were rivals.
Since Rogers and Fagan were


12-years-old, they've competed
against one another. Coyle's
travel team, the Orange County
Batbusters, was eliminated from
nationals by Team North Florida
- a squad led by Fagan and her
younger sister, 2011 UF commit


Sami Fagan.
"Once we met each other, we
were like, 'I didn't really like you
when we were playing against each
other,"' the Gators third baseman
said. "But we're friends now."
The freshmen trio are room-

Gators freshman pitcher Hannah Rogers led the Southeastern Conference in wins. Rogers, Cheyenne
Coyle and Kasey Fagan were rivals a year ago, but the three teamed up to lead UF to a conference title.


mates and have banded together to
help lead Florida to a No. 4 seed in
the NCAA Tournament, which be-
gins Friday in Gainesville.
Rogers ended the regular sea-
son leading the Southeastern Con-
ference in wins. Coyle carries a .313
batting average with 13 home runs,
and Fagan has committed fewer er-
rors than any other non-catcher in
the Gators infield.
"If we're going to have a
chance to win games, they
better play with the confi-
dence they've played with
the whole year long."
Tim Walton
UF Head Coach

But their first collegiate post-
season will be magnified by both
uncharted territory and circum-
stance.
With the most successful senior
class in UF softball history on its
way out, this postseason is the last
chance for the seniors to claim a na-
tional title after three failed trips to
the Women's College World Series.
Coach Tim Walton said the
freshmen will be vital to reaching
the team's goal.
"One plays short, one plays
third, one pitches - and is going
to pitch a lot," he said. "If we're go-
ing to have a chance to win games,


they better play to another level,
and they better play with the con-
fidence they've played with the
whole year long."
Florida's reliance on its three
freshman starters could become
even more necessary if its upper-
classmen continue to struggle.
In the past seven games, UF's se-
niors Kelsey Bruder, Megan Bush,
Tiffany DeFelice and Aja Paculba
have hit a combined .231 with nine
RBIs, 12 strikeouts and two home
runs - not ideal considering three
of the four flirted with or hit above
.400 all season. In comparison, the
seniors batted .315 with 26 RBIs
and 12 home runs in the seven
games before the aforementioned
stretch.
"They're going to come back
soon," Rogers said of the seniors.
"They fight."
Meanwhile, Coyle and Fagan
have combined to bat .297 with
seven RBIs and three homers (all
from Coyle) during the past seven
games. Included is Coyle's walk-
off blast in Florida's May 6 come-
from-behind win over Tennessee,
which helped keep the Gators' SEC
East hopes alive.
In the circle, Rogers will be as
important as ever. Senior right-
hander Stephanie Brombacher has
yet to pitch a complete game since
returning from a bicep injury on
April 16.

Back-end boys key, with caveat


The Philadelphia Phillies sport R2C2.
The Miami Heat roll with Three 6

Florida's Kevin O'Sullivan manages a

toward the postseason with a pivotal con-
ference-deciding series versus Kentucky

Gators off to solid start


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Staff Writer
mwatts@alligator org

When the Florida women's golf team
completed its first round at the NCAA
Championship on Wednesday, there were
still more than 12 teams on the course.
As players sought out lunch, it was
unclear how the No. 19 Gators' 6-over
round of 294 would stack up against the
competition. But at the end of the day,
UF sits in fifth place, trailing four teams
ranked in the top 10.
Coach Jan Dowling said she was
pleased with her team's result in round
one, as the Gators didn't record a score
higher than bogey.
"That's a testament to the way they


played," Dowling said. "If they missed [a
green] they took their medicine and were
obviously making some smart decisions
out there."
Leading up to the tournament, Dowl-
ing said she emphasized a conservative
approach on the difficult Traditions Golf
Course in Bryan, Texas.
SDesigned by Jack Nick-
laus, the course punishes
missed shots and makes
Gol f scoring difficult.
"[A conservative ap-
proach] will actually give
you more opportunities for birdies than
if you were pin-seeking on every hole,"
Dowling said. "It's very penal to be miss-
ing on the short side of greens on this golf

Three things to look for this weekend from Gators lacrosse, tennis and golf


LACROSSE
By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

After scoring Florida's first NCAA Tournament victory
in a 13-11 win over Stanford last weekend, the No.4-seeded
Gators (16-3, 5-0 American Lacrosse Conference) advanced to
host No. 5-seed Duke (14-4, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) in
the second round Saturday at 3 p.m. in Dizney Stadium.
Can the Gators take anything away from their pre-
season matchup? The two teams squared off in an exhi-
bition before the season started, and reportedly, the Blue
Devils got the better of Florida. "It gives us a good refer-
ence on to what's coming to us," goalie Mikey Meagher
said. "We didn't play our best against them the first time
around, so we now know how to adjust and what need-
ed to be adjusted to get a win against this team." Duke
comes into the matchup off of a rugged regular season
including four wins over top-10 teams.
How will UF's young midfield matchup with a se-
nior-laden Duke attack? After trudging through an in-
jury-prone season, the Blue Devils are getting back into
form at the right time. Senior Emma Hamm (46 goals, 24
assists) is a Tewaaraton finalist who missed all of 2010
with an ACL tear, while fellow midfielder Kat Thomas
rebounded from a sprained ankle to score four goals in
Duke's 12-9 first round win against Penn. "They have a
lot of seniors where it could be their last game in all of
college, so I feel like they're going to come out strong,"
UF midfielder Janine Hilher said.
Will Meagher stay solid in goal against another top
10 offense? With the nation's seventh-best draw control
average, the Blue Devils will look to get extra posses-
sions against a Gators team which has lost the overall
face-off battle in five of their last six games. Meagher has
been stellar in goal recently, including 11 saves against
the Cardinal's second-ranked offense. The sophomore
will face an equally daunting task against Duke's attack
which scores 14.28 goals per game - good for seventh
in the nation.


UF goalie Mikey Meagher will be under constant pressure Satur-
day if the Gators can't overcome their draw-control struggles.


MEN'S TENNIS
By THOMAS NASSIFF
Alligator Writer

After winning its regional and advancing to the
NCAA Tournament Round of 16, the UF's men's ten-
nis team will play conference rival Kentucky today
at 3 p.m. in Palo Alto, Calif., at Stanford University.
Will the Gators maintain their momentum? Flor-
ida went on a magnificent run to win the Southeast-
ern Conference Tournament, winning four matches
in as many days. But the team wasn't particularly
tested in the NCAA Regional and will have to get the
ball .11I 1', early to make a deep run this weekend.
Will the rematch benefit or burden the Gators?
This will be the third time Florida and Kentucky
have faced off this year. During the regular season,
the Wildcats came away with a tight win on Flori-
da's home courts, but UF exacted revenge in the SEC
Tournament final. "We know Kentucky extremely
well," coach Andy Jackson said. "They beat us on our
home court earlier in the year, and then we played a
very, very close match about three weeks ago."

"We know Kentucky extremely well."
Andy Jackson
head coach

Can Alexandre Lacroix keep carrying this team?
Lacroix hasn't lost a singles match in more than a
month, and he took over the top spot on UF's all-time
career wins list last weekend. If the Gators are going
to have any shot at advancing, the s.- - .... 11i have to
continue his strong play from the SEC Tournament
and NCAA Regionals.


MEN'S GOLF
By MATT WATTS
Alligator Staff Writer

After a stellar spring season capped by a Southeastern Confer-
ence Championship, the No. 1-seed Florida men's golf team hosts an
NCAA Regional starting today in Ocala at 8 a.m.
Can senior Andres Echavarria continue to play well?
Echavarria took medalist honors at the Gator Invitational and
the SEC Championship, leading Florida to tournament victo-
ries in each. When he plays well, Florida usually follows suit.
But the senior had to make an emergency
room visit last week due to food poison-
ing, and his health may be a factor over the
weekend.
How will the Gators respond to a lay-
off of more than a month? Florida won
the SEC Championship on April 17, giving
them plenty of time to prepare for region-
als. But the time off hasn't gone smoothly.
Aside from Echavarria's illness, sophomore Tyler McCumber
broke his finger recently and his status for the regional is in
doubt. "I'm a little nervous about this month off in that things
have not gone necessarily in our way," coach Buddy Alexan-
der said.
Can Florida take advantage of the course? The regional
will be held at Golden Ocala Golf Course, a track familiar to
the Gators. Less than an hour from Gainesville, Alexander
said the team has plenty of experience on the course and usu-
ally plays it well. UF must use that to its advantage this week-
end in order to advance to the championship. "It's been a bad
month, to be honest," Alexander said. "I just hope we're ready
to play."

S The No. 2 overall women's tennis team swept its NCAA

course."
Junior Andrea Watts must have
been paying attention. She carded an
even-par 72 on Wednesday with an as-
tonishing 18 straight pars.
"That's pretty impressive isn't it,"
Dowling said. "We were kind of laugh-
ing. That's not something that happens
very often."
Dowling said Watts' ball-striking
consistently kept her ball in the fair-
way and on the green in regulation.
But it was her lack of a three-putt that
helped keep the round together, the
coach said.
Playing out of the No. 1 spot in the
rotation, sophomore Mia Piccio also
fired an even-par 72. Piccio made the
turn at 1-over and bogeyed her 10th
hole before making two birdies to pull
back to even.
Starting at the par-5 10th, sopho-
more Isabelle Lendl began her round
with a birdie, but it would be her only
red number on the day. She added
three bogeys on the back nine to shoot
a 2-over 74.
Junior Evan Jensen had 14 pars
and four bogeys on the day, carding a
4-over 76. The team's only senior Jes-
sica Yadloczky, whose round didn't
count toward the team total Wednes-
day, struggled to a 9-over 81.
Wind gusts blew at 20 mph con-
stantly from the start of the round,
Dowling said, but she also added that
her team didn't seem to be fazed.
"We knew that was going to hap-
pen and we prepared for it," the coach
said. "li1. *:.- h.,IIl, that hard work that
they've put in is going to continue to
pay off the next few days."

ence play began.
"Paco" struggled before SECs, but the sophomore left-
hander has allowed just a single earned run in 10 conference
appearances. Maronde hasn't conceded a run since April 8,
and the junior has been a punch-out machine, striking out 13 in
his last 10.1 innings.
In just his first collegiate season towing the rubber, Maddox
has assumed the role of unendorsed closer. The burly right-
hander sports a minuscule 0.89 ERA, :-II. J "11' 1.1r two earned
runs all year.
Larson is the most ho-hum dude in the group, as the 6-foot-
8 righty quietly just gets people out. On Sunday, UF's band
of brothers tossed 5.2 scoreless innings in UF's series-clinching
victory over Vanderbilt.
But like Charlie Sheen, the quartet is only valuable if the
team is close to winning. Recently, the Gators have been faced
with an untimely issue as they move toward the postseason:
Can Florida get enough out of its starters to even get to the
meat of the pen?
Although Hudson Randall has been a stable arm for the
Gators, lately, UF doesn't know whafts its going to get from its
other "Two and a Half Men."
Junior Alex "Panda" Panteliodis and sophomore Brian
Johnson have been inconsistent over the past month, while
freshman Karsten Whitson has possibly plateaued this year.
For the two southpaws, O-Town's "All or Nothing" could
be the theme song for the past four weeks.
Florida's Panda bear tossed two solid starts against in-state
rivals, but those appearances were sandwiched between three
outings where the left-hander was absolutely rocked.
Johnson was ballin' during non-conference play, but in
nine SEC starts, the lefty has pitched fewer than six innings six
times. After making Ole Miss look silly on April 30 (6.2 innings,
zero runs and nine strikeouts), Johnson has pitched twice and
been knocked around for 11 earned runs.
Whitson's situation is a little different. The freshman has
pitched well the entire year, progressively transforming from
a thrower to a pitcher. But the flame throwing righty has failed
to work into the sixth inning in his last two starts after finally
hurdling that barrier three weeks ago.
For the trio, the two steps forward, three steps back routine
has handcuffed O'Sullivan with how he has to manage his bull-
pen.
The Gators have an outstanding ball club infused with great
pitching and balanced hitting. But if they're going to accom-
plish their goal of winning the SEC and going back to Omaha,
their starting pitching needs to find their old form, so the back-
end boys can even be used.
If not, it'll be their opponents - instead of Maddox & Co.
- waving "Bye Bye Bye" as the season ends.

THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 SG president calls for expansion of free printing Project is expected to cost $300,000 By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Staff Writer UF Student Body President Ben Meyers announced an executive order to form a Free Printing Task Force at a student senate meeting Tuesday night. Meyers, who assumed the position of Student Body President earlier this month, said expanding free printing for students was one of his top platform points. "Right now, we have the third floor of the Reitz Union," Meyers said in an interview after the meeting. "You can go there and wait in a 45-minute line. My goal is to have [free printing] everywhere." He said the measure is easier said than done. Expanding printing privileges means expanding computer labs, which means more money. Meyers said he expects that portion of the project to cost about $300,000. The project would be funded out of the Activities and Services fee, which is used to fund a variety of campus projects, organizations and events. Another part of the new free printing process would be a reallocation of paper resources. Currently, each student has a Meyers central pot. 300-page printing quota per semester. Meyers wants to eliminate the quota and instead give students unlimited printing from a That means students who have 500-page projects due at the end of the semester can print them all using university resources, since a student who takes all online classes wouldn't be using his or her 300 pages. Officials will debate whether a central printing pot can meet the students' demands. They face the question of whether student fees would have to be raised. Meyers said he is unsure whether central printing is the solution, and the committee is charged withfindingthat solution. At the meeting Tuesday, the senate voted in 21 temporary senators, each of whom will fill the void left by senators leaving for parts of the summer. Eighteen temporary seats and three permanent seats remain unfilled.

2, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 News Today Yale suspends embattled frat for sexist chants NEW HAVEN, Conn. -A prestigious Yale fraternity is being banned from recruiting and holding activities on campus for five years after pledges were ordered to chant obscenities against women. Yale says it has also disciplined several Delta Kappa Epsilon members and asked the fraternity's national office to suspend the chapter for five years. The fraternity, which was founded at Yale in 1855, came under fire in October after pledges marched through campus and chanted phrases about sex acts including necrophilia. Chapter leaders later apologized, and the fraternity's national office in Ann Arbor, Mich., ordered them to stop all pledge activities. Yale says the discipline was necessary to ensure "an educational environment free from harassment and intimidation."

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 At general store, customers come for mail, memories By ALEX ORLANDO Alligator Staff Writer The locals come for their mail and a place to get out of the sun. Out-of-towners come to show knee-high passengers the life their great-granddaddies once knew. Time, like U.S. Highway 441 and later 1-75, has passed Evinston by. Driving down County Road 225, a slim, rough road with faded lane markers, 20 minutes south of Gainesville, you barely know you're there before you've passed it. Since 1884, every one of Evinston's houses, Victorian-era buildings that stand in cattle pastures along the road, has been accounted for by 92 brass post boxes lining a wall in the Wood and Swink Old Store and Post Office. Out front, it looks like a typical Florida cracker house with a tin roof and pine walls. Most of the time, one or more of the locals are on the front porch, perched in the shade atop a long bench. Inside stands a rusty red Coca-Cola cooler, a store-length counter and the woman who worked 32 years as Evinston's postmaster, Wilma Sue Brown Wood with her husband, Freddie Wood Jr. Outside the store's pine-shuttered windows, the Woods have seen change. The wagons that pulled up to the store have been replaced with SUVs and hybrids. They've seen young ones, who toddled into the store for sweets, grow up and bring their own children in. Change hasn't hit so quickly inside the store. Bubble gum still goes for 3 cents. A can of Coke costs 60 cents. A 1950s cash register still chirps from the corner. Cash or check only. No cards. The only change, a rise in the town's population, is tallied on the front wall. Starting with 25 tiny brass post boxes, the Woods had to install 83 more over the years for 108 boxes. Ninety-two are still in use. The Woods know all the box's owners by first name. By 7:30 every morning, Brown Wood is in the store, filing letters into their respective boxes. She strings up the Stars and Stripes on a pine flag pole, just off the front porch, then waits for customers to trail in. In her time at the store, she can only remember one instance when she showed up late for work. That was when 200 head of cattle, loose from a nearby farm, blocked her way to the door. "I just got out and hollered at them," she said. "They moved." From noon to 2 p.m., she heads back to the farm, where she meets Freddie to make him a ham and cheese sandwich. Then it's back to the store to wait on customers until 4 p.m. She's done all of this for 32 years without air conditioning or heat ventilation. In the summer, she opens the store for the winds that whip off Orange Lake. On winter days, it's common to find her bundled up behind the counter. The cold bothers her. Most of the time, her customers are the ones who pop in and out for mail and to share stories. Tourists come on weekends, usually led by friendly recommendation. Alex Orlando / Alligator Freddie Wood Jr., a volunteer at the Wood and Swink Old Store and Post Office, waits for customers next to a portrait of himself. But a few dozen customers buying goods at half their market value isn't going to keep the doors open. On a good year, it's barely enough to meet operating costs. After Wilma retired a year ago, Evinston has been hard-pressed to find another postmastersomeone who is willing to bear the summer heat under the hot tin roof. Right now, Scarlett Kineler, Post Master Relief, runs the office temporarily. The Woods run the store on a volunteer basis. The next postmaster will be appointed by the U.S. Postal Service, but the Woods say they want to make it easier for whoever gets the job. Freddie Wood III, the couple's son, said the renovations could be thought of as a $50,000 act of southern hospitality. Those renovations include central air and heat, restrooms, a handicap ramp, wood-plank floors and windows and a glass alcove. Wood remembers working in the store when he was about 10 years old. He's 45 now, but even he can recall horses and buggies pulling up to the store. Woodward Coleman, a stooped-over old man who lived up the road, couldn't see well enough to drive his truck into town, so he would drive his mule-drawn wagon every day to pick up his mail. Wood tells that story to customers who linger and will probably tell it to his 2-yearold son, Freddie Wood IV. That's why he said the store should be maintained and protected from any buyers. "It would be a shame to have that happen with all the history that's here," he said. "Things like that would just disappear if they weren't told to people who come in." From cosmic to calamari; UF prof's squids go to space 0 TENTACLED CREATURES USED FOR RESEARCH ON BACTERIA AND HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM By EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer Three baby squid aboard the space shuttle Endeavor had 24 hours to enjoy outer space before they -and the experiment they were a part of -were terminated. Those 24 hours were all UF assistant professor Jamie Foster needed to get the results she's looking for -results that may shed light on the effects of microgravity on astronaut health. Foster used bobtail squid, a species that has a symbiotic relationship with the bacteria Vibrio fischeri, as a model for similar relationships between bacteria and the human body. Astronauts often experience weakened immune systems as a result of space travel. Previous research has shown that disease-causing bacteria can become more harmful in space, but Foster seeks to examine the effects of space on the body's "good" bacteria, such as the bacteria essential for digestion or immune-system responses. "Do good bacteria go bad?" she asked. Bobtail squid use bacteria from their environment to produce light, which help the squid avoid predators by enabling them to move through the water without casting a shadow. The three squid aboard the shuttle were placed in saltwater-filled, Sharpie-sized tubes. Astronaut Greg Chamitoff added the bacteria to the squids' enU F vironment once the shuttle entered orbit. After enough time had passed for the squid to absorb the bacteria, Chamitoff added a preservative, killing the squid and preserving their bodies for Foster's dissection upon the shuttle's return June 1. Bacteria make up 90 percent of cells in the human body. Foster's squid will help scientists understand how the stresses of space travel affect those cells. "The ultimate goal is to protect their health and reduce any risks for astronauts who may be up there for weeks, even months," she said. Foster will replicate the experiment and send another three squid to space with the space shuttle Atlantis on its launch, set for early July. New dean announced for college of agriculture By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Staff Writer The UF College of Agricultural and Life Sciences announced earlier this week that Teresa Balser will serve as its new dean. The college launched a nationwide search and narrowed its search to four candidates before deciding on Balser, said Jack Payne, UF's senior vice president for agriculture and natural resources. Balser, who previously served at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is the first woman dean of the college, he said. Payne said he selected Balser because she possessed a passion for innovation in education, which fell in line with his vision. "You know how they used to say, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it?"' he said. "Well, in my mind, if it ain't broke, let's make it better." In an interview Wednesday, Balser said her goal is to make education less of a one-size-fits-all experience. "I want students to learn things the way that we naturally learn new things," she said. "It's not normal to sit in a classroom and memorize a giant textbook. It's not how people learn things in the real world." She said she wants to have students identify their career goals early on and find something that works for them. She suggested having students take smaller seminar courses early on or try learning in the held and focus on why students are learning the material. However, Balser she's leaving it open for debate. "I don't have all the ideas," she said. "I have some, but [I want to say] to students,'What do you think will work for you?"' Balser will officially begin her work July 1 but won't arrive to campus until later because she is currently looking for a house in the area.

THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Local Starbucks loses steam, set to close Sunday Alex Orlando / Alligator The Starbucks on 3822 Newberry Road and 39th Street will close May 22. By MICHAEL SYKES Alligator Contributing Writer The Starbucks store located at 3822 Newberry Road and 39th Street is scheduled to close on May 22, according to an email from Kristin Hill, a Starbucks spokeswoman. Hill would not say why the store is closing. Yvette Little, 22, a UF health science graduate, said she doesn't know why the 39th Street store would close. "It's always packed when I'm here," she said. Little said she visits the store often to use the Internet and have a cup of coffee, always bringing her own creamer. Little is a massage therapist at A Better Massage on Northwest 43rd Street and said the Starbucks is the most convenient place for her to use the Internet while she's on call for work. Matt Cohen, 25, and Jonathan Trinastic, 27, doctoral students at UF, like the store because it's not as busy as some of the others, which might be why it's closing, they said. "I know [being slow] is bad for business," Cohen said. "But it's why I like coming to this Starbucks, that and the baristas." "It's always packed when I'm here." Yvette Little UF health science graduate Workers at the Newberry Road Starbucks near the Oaks Mall said the location of the 39th store is too difficult to see because the store is heavily surrounded by trees and other buildings. Workers said most of the employees from the 39th Street store will work at the other Starbucks locations, and some have already started taking shifts there.

Vagrants are a serious, ongoing problem at Arlington Square Apartments downtown." The coalition believes that developers have been influential in keeping the meal limit, even after the City Plan Board prompted the City Commission in March to replace it for the three-hour block alternative.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 Bankrupt Once again, Scott takes aim at education system In the wake of one of the most dysfunctional and egodriven legislative sessions in state history, our state's Criminal-in-Chief and Voldemort stunt-double Rick Scott announced earlier this week that the efforts from his Hollywood-haired, Reagan-idolizing minions to hack away at Florida's budget didn't quite go as far as he would have liked. With a budget that's about $4 billion lighter, the Prince of Darkness still wants to find "additional savings." One of his targets: state university and college building projects. We understand that this state cannot afford to ride a gravy train of taxpayer revenue given the current economic climate and its affect on the Sunshine State. This is a recession and sacrifices need to be made. However, Scott's decision to once again take a swing at Florida's university system illustrates an ideologically driven pseudopolitico's disenchantment with reality. For an educational system that, through poor management and oversight, already has one foot in the grave and the other one slipping, this move represents another kick to the crutch by state government. If there is one person who would probably love to deliver Sweet Chin Music to Slick Rick, it's Bernie Machen. He already faces the tall task of finding a way to bridge a deficit that stands at $33 million, following proposed tuition hikes, without laying off any personnel or cutting any programs. Now he faces the prospect of having Tallahassee further tightening its purse strings. We don't say this often, but we feel for Bernie. Our hearts don't bleed at the thought of losing out on another magnificent stroke of architecture. It's the message behind the governor's move that troubles us. He has once again demonstrated a gross sense of apathy toward the state's higher education system. Through his numerous stumbles in logic, he believes that turning a cold shoulder to the public university system will somehow expedite his pledge to create private sector jobs. If the governor was truly serious about "additional savings," he would focus his financial crosshairs on the numerous pet projects of those who have been charged to write our laws. If he wanted to show the state his nononsense approach to our state's ability to toss taxpayer money like Pacman Jones at the "scrip club," he would wield his hatchet against some of his most loyal apostles, the ones who think government has grown to the size of a Macy's Thanksgiving Day balloon. But surely that wouldn't be the most politically savvy thing for our governor to do. In fact, it would just be downright inconvenient. One could even got as far as to call it -wait for it -"common sen--." Oh wait, we forgot. You don't say that when speaking of the Great Carnival at the Capitol. So instead, on behalf of all the universities who are feeling the cold hand of the Dark Lord growing tighter around their necks, we are going to extend a highly-cultivated, well-educated, double-fisted, "line-item-this" middle-finger salutes toward Tallahassee. If things keep going the way our state government wants them, it will be the only thing that both they and our students will be able to read. a ll te independent forida CJ Pruner EDITOR Joey Flechas Josh Isom MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe 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, style and libel Send letters to letters@alligatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, Gainesville, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions? Call 376-4458 Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion Interventionism is glorified bullying magine waking up disoriented from the bright glare of a flashlight and the sound of snarling dogs and foreigners ripping you, your spouse and your children out of bed. In the United States, we'd think this was a home invasion, but in Afghanistan, this scene is a commonplace nighttime raid by our troops, another callous example of American interventionism. Liberals pulled us into Libya because Gadhafi was "poised" to murder all the dissenters. What direct benefit is our intervention to the U.S. taxpayers? More importantly, why are we dropping bombs when Congress did not declare war? Many liberals turn this into a humanitarian issue, but the United States is not the world's big brother. I understand some feel we cannot idly sit by, but my taxes support the American government. Every dollar siphoned to "saving" foreigners is a dollar siphoned from our schools, infrastructure or research. On the other side of the aisle, Republicans, beholden to the military-industrial complex, advocate a worldview that appoints the United States to maintain order in the world. With election season heating up, I'm sure many Republicans testing out the presidential waters are sure to talk about Iran. "We'll bomb their facilities," they'll say, "because it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuke." Perhaps Iran is acting defensively. Perhaps they are worried about us; we do have a track record of overthrowing their government. We do have troops on both sides of Iran. Contrary to what Fox News tells us, Iran does not pose a threat to the very existence of the United States. Rep. Ron Paul often preaches about the concept of blowback, the idea that when we try to impose our will on foreign lands we will suffer unforeseen externalities. A prime example would be the Iranian coup in 1953, which helped set up the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the installment of the current anti-West regime in Iran. According to Paul, they don't hate us over there because we're fat or rich; they hate us because we try to impose our will everywhere. The United Today's question: Do you use free printing on campus?

"Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none," Thomas Jefferson once said. The founders envisioned the United States as a humble republic. It wasn't until the Spanish-American War in 1898 that noninterventionism was defenestrated. Military intervention is a red herring to avert attention from the real problems facing our nation. It is not up to us to fix other countries, yet politicians seem to find it easier to invade half of the Middle East than get our fiscal house in order. In the end, it comes down to dollars and cents. With our national debt approaching the gross domestic product, we cannot afford nonessential military intervention. The loss of life anywhere is unfortunate, but unless our national security is at extreme risk, we ought to think long and hard before dropping bombs. Our nation is many things: the lab for scientific innovation, the cultural trendsetter and a global beacon of hope. It should not sink to the level of schoolyard bully. Any politician arguing for the need to intervene in the affairs of others is full of hot air. We have much bigger fish to fry. Instead, politicians should focus on balancing the budget, paying off our debt, attracting manufacturing jobs, revamping public education, and improving the economy to ensure the 21st century will be another American century.

THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Gov. Scott should be impeached Gov. Rick Scott needs to go. In his first few months of office he has singlehandedly killed the best opportunity this state had for economic development and job growth, further destroyed our education system, attempted to balance the state's budget on the backs of our middle class and much more. Or should I say so much less? He is the most corrupt American politician since Boss Tweed and is twice as creepy looking. Like Tammany Hall, he needs to be eliminated. The high-speed rail would have brought about 24,000 jobs to our state, one of the hardest hit states by the recession. It also would have marked an economic and technological step forward. Scott opposed and effectively slaughtered the rail for pure petty politics. Scott ran for governor under one promise: jobs. Yet he destroyed the first and best opportunity he had to keep that promise. He let down the 2,619,335 people who agreed with his vision and voted for him in November. The liberals in this state and those who supported the rail shouldn't be the most upset citizens right now. The unemployed voters who gave Scott a percentagepoint victory over Alex Sink should be. Furthermore, he has balanced Florida's troubled budget on the backs of the middle class and the people who put him in office. Cutting teacher's pensions and putting the education of our posterity at risk is not a Republican thing to do. Florida is now the most frugal state when it comes to helping the unemployed. As a state, we shouldn't mope over Scott's past injuries upon our livelihoods, our children and our democracy. It is time we join State Rep. Rick Kriseman's efforts to pass a bill in the Florida legislature that would allow us to recall state officials. As of now, the only way to get rid of Scott is through impeachment. If his abuses continue, we should not forget about that option.This man is a million dollars more corrupt than Bernie Madoff and would probably lose a re-election to him. Why suffer until 2014? Let's eliminate the dark storm over the Sunshine State now! Jose Perez UF Student With the world ending this Saturday running for President seems trivial. However, in the safety of the most resplendent and luxurious ark money can buy I will survive and I will gladly accept the position of Supreme Overlord of the post-apocalyptic world. N--Repopulating the human race was not in my contract! TBA Self-image and the scale: the henchmen of eating disorders A sIwas placing my weekly necessities on the conveyor belt at Sweetbay one morning, I glanced at the magazines begging for my attention in front of me. Of course, I noticed the emaciated, indeterminate women on the covers and was forced to wonder, "Are these people even real?" Actually, with today's photo manipulation, they often are not. I was especially bemused by the comments plastered over the magazines I looked at. One announced the breaking news of a celebrity who had gained 20 pounds. Unbelievable, I know. It is often said that women are oppressed in certain foreign countries. Indeed, some foreign countries deny equality, basic rights and lifestyle options to women. This is an unfortunate reality. What is not said is that women are also subjugated inAmerican society. No longer are women domineered by a lack of voting rights or career options. Instead, their emotions are held hostage by something more personal: their body image. The body image issues that plague Hollywood have spread throughout the country. The slender, interchangeable bodies that are force-fed through television, magazines and movies have become the desire of the typical American woman. Often, the desire becomes an unhealthy obsession. Recently, many actresses have spoken out against the media fascination with thinness -they are among the lucky ones Abdul Zalikha who have escaped their consuming obletters@alligatororg session. The South Carolina Department of Mental Health estimates that 7 million American women suffer from an eating disorder. Of all mental illnesses, eating disorders are most fatal. College women are especially at risk. A study by Kalodner and Scarano found that 85 percent of college women believe they are overweight. Less than a third of them actually are. A study by Polivy and Herman found that the development of eating disorders appears to be influenced by sociocultural factors. Similar studies show that exposure to mass media is correlated with negative body image and eating disorders. Eating disorders affect entire families. I am but one of millions who have witnessed a loved one fight through an eating disorder. Make no mistake, these eating disorders are personal mental health disorders. Don't get me wrong; remaining fit is a vital part of a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle. Being skinny, however, is not necessarily healthy nor is it a reasonable health goal. It is simply the arbitrary, current demand society has placed on women. This demand has transformed throughout history. In the past, some cultures viewed larger figures as most desirable in women. Skinny is nothing more than the new "pleasantly plump." And here's a secret they might not tell you: You won't be any happier at a lighter weight than you are now. A 2001 study by Hoyt and Kogan found that underweight, normal weight and overweight women were all equally likely to be satisfied or unsatisfied -with their weight. Don't ditch the gym, though. It is good for your health. Thin, average or plump -it really doesn't matter. Your weight won't define your happiness. Your own body image is all that's important.

Let's face it: you can'tturn a 650-page book into a 2-hour movie without making it feel like a SportsCenter highlight reel. With the "Deathly Hallows" book running more than 750 pages, the studio had no choice but to break the final film into two parts, or suffer the wrath of millions of angry Potter fans flinging Avada Kedavra curses their way. Splitting the final book into two films was a win-win. Fans get a movie that is a more accurate portrayal of the book, and the studio fans donningtheir robes and wands gets to cash in on the Potter franchise one last time. The Tech Effect: Cyberdyne makes cyborgs a reality By CARTER LYLES avenue columnist In 1984, America was introduced to Cyberdyne through the science fiction film "The Terminator." Now, more than 30 years later, we're getting to know a new Cyberdyne. Cyberdyne Inc. of Japan has created a new technology which it hopes will be applied to various fields of rehabilitation support, physical training, heavy labor support and rescue support at disaster sites. Cyberdyne's achievement is named HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb), a robotic suit that allows the wearer to augment their daily activities through its unique biosignal sensors that detect finite movements of the voluntary control system. Simply put, HAL reads the most imperceptible signals that are given off from the skin when we are preparing to move, and interprets those signals into electronic cues that allow HAL to move with you, rather than move for you. Developed by Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai of the University of Tsukuba, HAL provides a revolutionary step in aiding both paraand quadriplegic patients as well as giving the extra strength that relief and rescue workers may need in times of disaster. The suit allows the wearer to lift 88 pounds more than what he could normally lift and aids the endurance of the occupant by taking the strain off the human form and placing it creators of HAL are, the situation is still ironic. on the robot's hydraulics. In the "Terminator" franchise, the machines Yet however benevolent the intentions of the refer to themselves as cyborgs, as "living tisCyberdyne Inc. of Japan is taking cyborg technology to a new level with their HAL suit. sue over a metal endoskeleton." The irony here is that the Series 800 Model 101s that Arnold Schwarzenegger portrayed are machine on the inside, human on the outside. In reality, HAL is the outer machine covering that protects the livingtissue of the human inside. As stated in promotional videos, "[HAL is] the attempt to unite human with machine .In other words, cyborg technology's breakthrough has been expected, all over the world." Even in Forbes magazine, HAL is being lauded as the "Rise of the Cyborg." It's no secret that one of the underlying goals of technology these days is to unite human with machine. Just look at recent breakthroughs such as the iPad and even something as simple as TiVo. Integration is the name of the game, and both Cyberdyne and Yoshiyuki Sankai recognize this. "My basic motivation is to develop devices to enhance and expand human ability," Sankai said. As of today, the unit (and its newest iteration, the lighter and leaner lower-body suit which was showcased at this year's International Forum on Cybernics) is available for rental at the rate of $2,200 per month and must be recharged every five hours. But for all the Tony Stark wannabes, the chance to feel like Iron Man is priceless. Beat the Gainesville blues: five places to hang out on weekends By SHELBY WEBB avenue writer Summer A is in full swing, and what have you done so far -nursed your hangovers and lain out by the pool?

10, ALLIGATOR thursday, may 19, 2011 Local punkers Protagonist release "States" EP By KATHLEEN BOYLE avenue writer It doesn't take much for one to realize the Gainesville music scene is heavily submersed in punk rock. From DIY basement shows to The Fest, it's evident that Gators love their rock'n'roll fast and aggressive. Much like the d raw of UF, the Gainesville scene also attracts bands from across Florida and beyond. Originally forming in Boca Raton in 2001, Protagonist is a five-piece melodic punk band whose ties to Gainesville have never been stronger. This month the band put out its fourth release, a five-song EP entitled "States" produced by Stephen Egerton of The Decendents. "States" was released on Gainesville-based label Paper + Plastick Records. With a current lineup consisting of brothers Peter and John Marullo, Brian Forst, Marcus Kora and Kyle MacDougall, Protagonist is a true testamentto the successes of hardworking, dedicated musicians. Emancipating a whirlwind of crazy fast riffs, pounding drum beats and anxious group choruses, "States" has proved once again that punk rock is definitely not dead. Even though all the songs on "States" clock in at less than four minutes, this duration shouldn'tfool you into thinking the EP isn't worth your time. The opening title track instantly blasts you into a cyclonic hypnosis as thick palm-muted guitar progressions and accelerated rhythm are funneled around strong, impacting vocal harmonies ;nd shouts Never lacking in energy, "States" offers listeners an abundance of adrenaline without sounding sloppy or overly pessimistic. Rather, the lyricism delivers insightful reflections that will Protagonist (L to R: John Marullo, Brian Forst, Peter Marullo, Marcus Kora, Kyle MacDougall) released their "States" EP on Paper + Plastick Records on May 10. strike a chord with any twenty-something listener, heightened further by Peter Marullo's exceptional vocal capabilities. Like a true protagonist, the band was faced with many conflicts while recording this EP. Guitarist Brian Forst revealed that both the songwriting processes and studio sessions were met with obstacles. He said the band members are now spread out around the country. "Writing processes have shifted to rely on video chats, Garage Band files and lengthy emails," Forst said. "We only played the songs on 'States' together about twice before going into the studio, so this one really came together during the recording process." The band was also met with a most unfortunate awakening the morning of their first recording session -all of Protagonist's equipment was stolen the night before they went into the studio. "We got in our van, threw every piece of equipment we owned in our trailer and made the long drive, getting to town and checking into a hotel the night before we were scheduled to record," Forst explained. "In the morning when we headed to the van to drive to the studio we realized that our trailer was stolen. Needless to say, it was devastating." Fortunately for the band and listeners alike, the recording of "States" was able to unfold, culminating in an EP that audibly engulfs these frustrations and reverts them into songwriting successes. -I Tired of getting the same fast food every day? While everyone loves Chipotle and Wendy'swe figured S u m m e rtim e B ite s we'd give our readers a guide to some of Gainesville's more obscure restaurants they can check out over summer break.

University Ave. "Hot Dawgs" and Hamburgers Meals from $2-$4 Gator Dawgs not only serves up 'hot dawgs" and hamburgers but also offers vegan options for everything on the menu. You can grab any of the ridiculously themed dawgs and find out how a hot dog should really be done. Ben Brasch and Rosa Taveras / Alligator Staff local music a Spanish Gamble leave Gainesville confines for world tour By KELLY RICHARD avenue writer Perhaps no band embodies the punk tradition in which Gainesville is steeped better than Spanish Gamble. Butthe locally based band leftthe sun-soaked confines of Gainesville in April to embark on an extensive European tour. The band, comprised of vocalist/ guitarist Colin Shane, bassist Ryan Weber, guitarist Randy Reddell and drummer James Perez, released a full-length album entitled "It's All Coming Down" in February 2010 on Paper + Plastick Records. Weber said he met Paper + Plastick founder Vinnie Fiorello when Fiorello's band, Less Than Jake, placed an order with Weber's skateboard production company. While on tour, Weber called Fiorello and a domino effect led Spanish Gamble to eventually sign to Paper + Plastick. While in Europe, the band has played with a variety of groups. One of their favorite shows was playing in Bristol, U.K., with Dead To Me, OK Pilot, The Arteries and others, where Spanish Gamble went crazy during Dead To Me's performance. Reddell continued to say Spanish Gamble is treating the tour like a vacation. Although they don't have much downtime with traveling and performing nearly every day, they try to meet and have drinks with locals after every show. As a touring band, Weber said it's a great feeling to know they have support all around the world. "To be over here in Europe and know our music took us here is unbelievable," Weber said. While overseas, Weber is also in the process of booking a 50-day U.S. tour any time he can get an Internet connection. That do-it-yourself ethic is what has always kept Spanish Gamble relevant. When the band returns from Germany, it will start a new stateside run of datesjusttwo hours after touching down on the New York City tarmac. Even though touring life for a punk band can be difficult, Spanish Gamble wouldn't change anything for the world. Weber said they want to stay out on the road as much as possible "Someday we want to tour Japan, that's for sure!" Boca Fiesta 232 SE First St. Exotic Mexican Cuisine Meals around $10 Boca Fiesta meets the requirements of a standard taqueria while running parallel to traditional Mexican cuisine in an eccentric fashion. They offer many gluten-free and vegan friendly options to their novel dishes. The restaurant also features live music some nights. Mi Ap6 Latin Cafe 114 SW 34th St. Cuban Cuisine Meals from $5-$8 Mi Ap6 serves authentic Cuban food that incorporates traditional Latin flavors infused with Miamiand Tampa-influenced dishes. Switch up your breakfast routine and grab a traditional meatfilled arepa with a caf6 con leche when Mi Ap6 opens at 7 am. La Tienda 2204 SW 13th St. Traditional Mexican Cuisine Meals from $6-$9 La Tienda is a real Mexican restaurant, not a fusion taco joint, featuring full-fledged Mexican favorites. With hearty portions and time-honored Mexican fare, you can't go wrong no matter what you order. We recommend any of their stuffed burritos and trying the original Mexican sodas is a must. Harvest Thyme Cafe 2 W. University Ave. Breakfast and Lunch Meals from $4-$8 Harvest Thyme puts forward healthy alternative meal options for breakfast and lunch. Their meals boast to have all fresh and, whenever possible, locally grown products. Employee Katelyn Burkill said her favorite dish for the summertime is the Main Street Delight: a fresh fruit bowl with bananas, cantaloupes, grapes, watermelon and pineapple mixed with a scoop of nutty raisin and chicken salad.

From this music listener's perspective, Grooveshark is the way to go. Not only would you be supporting a local business by signing up for an account with Grooveshark, you'd be getting an excellent product and would become part of an exciting chapter in the website's story. Because even though it has just reached new heights, Grooveshark is only goingto go up from here. Grooveshark reaches milestone with 10 million users By KELLY RICHARD avenue writer In September 2009, Grooveshark registered its one millionth unique user. A year later, the Gainesville-based music streaming website jumped to five million users. On May 9, people around the globe watched as Grooveshark climbed to its greatest heights yet via a Ustream countdown. At about 5 p.m. that day, the website had reached more than 10 million users. Founders Sam Tarantino, Josh Greenberg and Andres Barreto launched Grooveshark in 2007 as undergraduates at UF. The website is an on-demand music service, operating like a digital jukebox where users can search any song they feel like listening to and simply play it. Signing up for an account is free. As proven by the numbers, the website is expanding, and with greater success comes more recognition in the press. Time magazine named Grooveshark one of the 50 best websites of 2010. W "The Time accolade was really awesome, and I think the big benefit of things in [larger publications] is that it gets the name out to a demographic that otherwise might not hear about it," spokesman Ben WestermannClark said. Grooveshark's main demographic lies in teenagers and collegeaged students in their early 20s. Another contributing aspect to Grooveshark's big numbers is its presence outside the United States, specifically in Canada and South America. "Most of these places aren't offered any other legal music streaming service, so their only options are piracy and Grooveshark," Westermann-Clark said. "We're happy to be able to give people the option not to steal music, even outside the U.S." Grooveshark isn't done growing just yet. Westermann-Clark said the site plans to apply integration between artists and users, encouraging communication between the two. In four years, Grooveshark has grown exponentially. A party for the 50-million milestone could be just around the corner. Z-%.L11 -LL Ca [1. Gator Dawgs We have 26 styles of hot dogs to choose from.

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Freshmen trio looks to lead UF in NCAA Regionals By BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer A year ago, Cheyenne Coyle, Kasey Fagan and Hannah Rogers were rivals. Since Rogers and Fagan were 12-years-old, they've competed against one another. Coyle's travel team, the Orange County Batbusters, was eliminated from nationals by Team North Florida -a squad led by Fagan and her younger sister, 2011 UF commit Sami Fagan. "Once we met each other, we were like, 'I didn't really like you when we were playing against each other,"' the Gators third baseman said. "But we're friends now." The freshmen trio are roomndfflb-l UImUIIUI/ Ml~UtmUF Gators freshman pitcher Hannah Rogers led the Southeastern Conference in wins. Rogers, Cheyenne Coyle and Kasey Fagan were rivals a year ago, but the three teamed up to lead UF to a conference title. Back-end boys key, with caveat he Philadelphia Phillies sport R2C2. The Miami Heat roll with Three Mafia. The No. 6 Gators baseball team has Lou Pearlman and his throng of boy bands. Florida's Kevin O'Sullivan manages a bullpen full of commanding dudes who flat-out bring it. But as the Gators waltz toward the postseason with a pivotal conference-deciding series versus Kentucky starting tonight, they need to hope their band of hotshots even has a chance to rock the house. On a nightly basis, its been UF's pen not the heralded starting pitching -that's propelled Florida to an opportunity to capture the Southeastern Conference regular season title for the second straight year. While Pearlman's Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and even O-Town made girls buckle at the knees, Steven "Paco" Rodriguez, Nick Maronde, Austin Maddox and Greg Larson steadily hurl Chet Steadman's stinky.I Jesse Simonton Simon Says jsimonton@alligator org here the last month." cheese. When Sully makes "The Call," chances are, the game is over. "Our bullpen is our strength," O'Sullivan said. "Those guys have really pitched well Florida's imposing group of relievers includes a pair of Jekyll and Hydes, but it's spearheaded by two filthy lefties and two hosses from the right. No one in the law firm Rodriguez, Larson, Maronde and Maddox has an ERA over 1.80. Southpaws Rodriguez and Maronde have been effectively wild this season, and the duo has been dominant since conferSEE JESSE, PAGE 20 mates and have banded together to help lead Florida to a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament, which begins Fnday in Gainesville. Rogers ended the regular season leading the Southeastern Conference in wins. Coyle carries a.313 batting average with 13 home runs, and Fagan has committed fewer errors than any other non-catcher in the Gators infield. "If we're going to have a chance to win games, they better play with the confidence they've played with the whole year long." Tim Walton UF Head Coach But their first collegiate postseason will be magnified by both uncharted territory and circumstance. With the most successful senior class in UF softball history on its way out, this postseason is the last chance for the seniors to claim a national title after three failed trips to the Women's College World Series. Coach Tim Walton said the freshmen will be vital to reaching the team's goal. "One plays short, one plays third, one pitches -and is going to pitch a lot," he said. "If we're going to have a chance to win games, they better play to another level, and they better play with the confidence they've played with the whole year long." Florida's reliance on its three freshman starters could become even more necessary if its upperclassmen continue to struggle. In the past seven games, UF's seniors Kelsey Bruder, Megan Bush, Tiffany DeFelice and Aja Paculba have hit a combined .231 with nine RBIs, 12 strikeouts and two home runs -not ideal considering three of the four flirted with or hit above .400 all season. In comparison, the seniors batted .315 with 26 RBIs and 12 home runs in the seven games before the aforementioned stretch. "They're going to come back soon," Rogers said of the seniors. "They fight." Meanwhile, Coyle and Fagan have combined to bat .297 with seven RBIs and three homers (all from Coyle) during the past seven games. Included is Coyle's walkoff blast in Florida's May 6 comefrom-behind win over Tennessee, which helped keep the Gators' SEC East hopes alive. In the circle, Rogers will be as important as ever. Senior righthander Stephanie Brombacher has yet to pitch a complete game since returning from a bicep injury on Apnl 16. SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 20 Gators off to solid start By MATT WATTS Alligator Staff Writer mwatts@alligator org When the Florida women's golf team completed its first round at the NCAA Championship on Wednesday, there were still more than 12 teams on the course. As players sought out lunch, it was unclear how the No. 19 Gators' 6-over round of 294 would stack up against the competition. But at the end of the day, UF sits in fifth place, trailing four teams ranked in the top 10. Coach Jan Dowling said she was pleased with her team's result in round one, as the Gators didn't record a score higher than bogey. "That's a testament to the way they played," Dowling said. "If they missed [a green] they took their medicine and were obviously making some smart decisions out there." Leading up to the tournament, Dowling said she emphasized a conservative approach on the difficult Traditions Golf Course in Bryan, Texas. Designed by Jack NickA 1 laus, the course punishes missed shots and makes Golf scoring difficult. "[A conservative approach] will actually give you more opportunities for birdies than if you were pin-seeking on every hole," Dowling said.

THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 19 WHAT TO WATCH Three things to look for this weekend from Gators lacrosse, tennis and golf LACROSSE By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer After scoring Florida's first NCAA Tournament victory in a 13-11 win over Stanford last weekend, the No.4-seeded Gators (16-3, 5-0 American Lacrosse Conference) advanced to host No. 5-seed Duke (14-4,4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) in the second round Saturday at 3 p.m. in Dizney Stadium. Can the Gators take anything away from their preseason matchup? The two teams squared off in an exhibition before the season started, and reportedly, the Blue Devils got the better of Florida. "It gives us a good reference on to what's coming to us," goalie Mikey Meagher said. "We didn't play our best against them the first time around, so we now know how to adjust and what needed to be adjusted to get a win against this team." Duke comes into the matchup off of a rugged regular season including four wins over top-10 teams. How will UFs young midfield matchup with a senior-laden Duke attack? After trudging through an injury-prone season, the Blue Devils are getting back into form at the right time. Senior Emma Hamm (46 goals, 24 assists) is a Tewaaraton finalist who missed all of 2010 with an ACL tear, while fellow midfielder Kat Thomas rebounded from a sprained ankle to score four goals in Duke's 12-9 first round win against Penn. "They have a lot of seniors where it could be their last game in all of college, so I feel like they're going to come out strong," UF midfielder Janine Hillier said. Will Meagher stay solid in goal against another top 10 offense? With the nation's seventh-best draw control average, the Blue Devils will look to get extra possessions against a Gators team which has lost the overall face-off battle in five of their last six games. Meagher has been stellar in goal recently, including 11 saves against the Cardinal's second-ranked offense. The sophomore will face an equally daunting task against Duke's attack which scores 14.28 goals per game good for seventh in the nation. Max Reed/ Alligator Staff UF goalie Mikey Meagher will be under constant pressure Saturday if the Gators can't overcome their draw-control struggles. MEN'S TENNIS By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer After winning its regional and advancing to the NCAA Tournament Round of 16, the UFs men's tennis team will play conference rival Kentucky today at 3 p.m. in Palo Alto, Calif., at Stanford University. Will the Gators maintain their momentum? Florida went on a magnificent run to win the Southeastern Conference Tournament, winning four matches in as many days. But the team wasn't particularly tested in the NCAA Regional and will have to get the ball rolling early to make a deep run this weekend. Will the rematch benefit or burden the Gators? This will be the third lime Florida and Kentucky have faced off this year. During the regular season, the Wildcats came away with a tight win on Florida's home courts, but UF exacted revenge in the SEC Tournament final. "We know Kentucky extremely well," coachAndy Jackson said. "They beat us on our home court earlier in the year, and then we played a very, very close match about three weeks ago." "We know Kentucky extremely well." Andy Jackson head coach Can Alexandre Lacroix keep carrying this team? Lacroix hasn't lost a singles match in more than a month, and he took over the top spot on UF's all-lime career wins list last weekend. If the Gators are going to have any shot at advancing, the senior will have to continue his strong play from the SEC Tournament and NCAA Regionals. MEN'S GOLF By MATT WATTS Alligator Staff Writer After a stellar spring season capped by a Southeastern Conference Championship, the No. 1-seed Florida men's golf team hosts an NCAA Regional starting today in Ocala at 8 a.m. Can senior Andres Echavarria continue to play well? Echavarria took medalist honors at the Gator Invitational and the SEC Championship, leading Florida to tournament victories in each. When he plays well, Florida usually follows suit. But the senior had to make an emergency room visit last week due to food poisoning, and his health may be a factor over the weekend. How will the Gators respond to a layoff of more than a month? Florida won the SEC Championship on April 17, giving Echavarria them plenty of time to prepare for regionals. But the time off hasn't gone smoothly. Aside from Echavarria's illness, sophomore Tyler McCumber broke his finger recently and his status for the regional is in doubt. "I'm a little nervous about this month off in that things have not gone necessarily in our way," coach Buddy Alexander said. Can Florida take advantage of the course? The regional will be held at Golden Ocala Golf Course, a track familiar to the Gators. Less than an hour from Gainesville, Alexander said the team has plenty of experience on the course and usually plays it well. UF must use that to its advantage this weekend in order to advance to the championship. "It's been a bad month, to be honest," Alexander said. "I just hope we're ready to play." : WOMEN'S TENNIS By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer .The No. 2 overall women's tennis team swept its NCAA Regional and also travels to Palo Alto for the Round of 16. The Gators take on Clemson on Friday at 3 p.m. Will UF's freshmen continue to flourish? Florida's -young and talented trio of Sofie Oyen, Alex Cercone .and Olivia Janowicz have dominated opponents all season. They were strong during the SEC Tournament but weren't needed very much in the NCAA Regional. If the Gators are to reach their goal of a rematch with Stanford, -the freshmen will have to maintain their solid play. .Can Florida resist looking ahead? Coach Roland Thornqvist has kept his team focused on beating less talented squads all year. The Gators already blasted Clemson 4-0 in the ITA Indoor Championships this season. -But Florida must avoid being distracted by a potential .rematch with Stanford in the final. "If you have a team .that is used to winning or playing for championships, you're at an advantage because they won't be in awe," Thornqvist said. "I'm anticipating that they'll keep their eye on the ball, take care of the little things, focus on nothing but our immediate and first challenge on Fri* day." .Can the Gators extend their doubles dominance? :Florida has rolled in doubles, winning the point in 17 straight matches. The Gators have dropped one match all season: Losing to Stanford in the ITA Indoor Championships final. Clemson features the nation's sixth-ranked .pairing of Keri Wong and Josipa Bek, so Florida's No. Maria Linares/ Alligator 2 duo of Allie Will and Cercone will face another tough The Gators will rely on freshmen like Alex Cercone challenge. this weekend in NCAA Championships.

20, ALLIGATOR 0 THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2011 Dowling impressed with team's approach GOLF, from page 18 course. Junior Andrea Watts must have been paying attention. She carded an even-par 72 on Wednesday with an astonishing 18 straight pars. "That's pretty impressive isn't it," Dowling said. "We were kind of laughing. That's not something that happens very often." Dowling said Watts' ball-striking consistently kept her ball in the fairway and on the green in regulation. But it was her lack of a three-putt that helped keep the round together, the coach said. Playing out of the No. 1 spot in the rotation, sophomore Mia Piccio also fired an even-par 72. Piccio made the turn at 1-over and bogeyed her 10th hole before making two birdies to pull back to even. Starting at the par-5 10th, sophomore Isabelle Lendl began her round with a birdie, but it would be her only red number on the day. She added three bogeys on the back nine to shoot a 2-over 74. Junior Evan Jensen had 14 pars and four bogeys on the day, carding a 4-over 76. The team's only senior Jessica Yadloczky, whose round didn't count toward the team total Wednesday, struggled to a 9-over 81. Wind gusts blew at 20 mph constantly from the start of the round, Dowling said, but she also added that her team didn't seem to be fazed. "We knew that was going to happen and we prepared for it," the coach said. "Hopefully that hard work that they've put in is going to continue to pay off the next few days." Harrison Diamond/ Alligator UF junior Andrea Watts found the green more times than not Wednesday, stringing together 18 straight pars to shoot 72 (E). FHorida hosts Bethune-Cookman on Friday SOFTBALL, from page 18 Since coming back, Brombacher has worked 39 innings, giving up 11 earned runs and striking out 20. During the same time, her more power-oriented freshman sidekick has thrown 59 innings, also surrendering 11 earned runs but notching 47 punch-outs. "Hannah comes in there and she's blowing it by people," Fagan said. "So I think that's hard to catch up to after you've seen Steph." Coyle grew up cheering for her hometown UCLA Bruins -one of the three teams in Gainesville this weekend for the UF Regional -and the Arizona Wildcats, where her brother played baseball, in the NCAA Tournament. Fagan remembers watching Ali Gardiner's walk-off shot against Alabama that sent UF to the 2009 national championship series.

"Paco" struggled before SECs, but the sophomore lefthander has allowed just a single earned run in 10 conference appearances. Maronde hasn't conceded a run since April 8, and the junior has been a punch-out machine, striking out 13 in his last 10.1 innings. In just his first collegiate season towing the rubber, Maddox has assumed the role of unendorsed closer. The burly righthander sports a minuscule 0.89 ERA, allowing just two earned runs all year. Larson is the most ho-hum dude in the group, as the 6-foot8 righty quietly just gets people out. On Sunday, UF's band of brothers tossed 5.2 scoreless innings in UF's series-clinching victory over Vanderbilt. But like Charlie Sheen, the quartet is only valuable if the team is close to winning. Recently, the Gators have been faced with an untimely issue as they move toward the postseason: Can Florida get enough out of its starters to even get to the meat of the pen? Although Hudson Randall has been a stable arm for the Gators, lately, UF doesn't know what's its going to get from its other "Two and a Half Men." Junior Alex "Panda" Panteliodis and sophomore Brian Johnson have been inconsistent over the past month, while freshman Karsten Whitson has possibly plateaued this year. For the two southpaws, O-Town's "All or Nothing" could be the theme song for the past four weeks. Florida's Panda bear tossed two solid starts against in-state rivals, but those appearances were sandwiched between three outings where the left-hander was absolutely rocked. Johnson was ballin' during non-conference play, but in nine SEC starts, the lefty has pitched fewer than six innings six times. After making Ole Miss look silly on April 30 (6.2 innings, zero runs and nine strikeouts), Johnson has pitched twice and been knocked around for 11 earned runs. Whitson's situation is a little different. The freshman has pitched well the entire year, progressively transforming from a thrower to a pitcher. But the flame throwing righty has failed to work into the sixth inning in his last two starts after finally hurdling that barrier three weeks ago. For the trio, the two steps forward, three steps back routine has handcuffed O'Sullivan with how he has to manage his bullpen. The Gators have an outstanding ball club infused with great pitching and balanced hitting. But if they're going to accomplish their goal of winning the SEC and going back to Omaha, their starting pitching needs to find their old form, so the backend boys can even be used. If not, it'll be their opponents -instead of Maddox & Co. -waving "Bye Bye Bye" as the season ends.
