ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterThe Plaza of the Americas may see renovations, including more seating areas and a designated area for Krishna Lunch. The UF Foundation, the organization spearheading the project, has amassed serious donor interest in the renovation, said Chandler Rozear, a project manager for the Architecture and Engineering Department at UF. (The Plaza) has gotten a little bit shabby and worn, Rozear said. Itll be more formalized. The Plaza is designated a green area on campus, which means construction is prohibited, as stated on the admissions website. Rozear said the renovation will only add benches and tables in the plaza, which is deemed acceptable by the university. Alumni groups are open to seeing the plaza become a more welcoming place for students and student organizations to frequent, he said.

JADE CASTROAlligator Contributing WriterAn updated version of the widely used TransLoc app might help Gainesville Regional Transit System bus riders get their mornings in gear a little faster. The new app, TransLoc Rider, was released in response to the increasing amount of rider usage from 2012 to 2013, said Scott Fox, director of UFs Transportation and Parking Services. The new rider app is a very nice upgrade, he wrote in an email. It is a far more interactive experience than simply looking at a map. New features include a service that allows users to locate the stops and routes nearest them via GPS, search for a desired route or stop with a new search component, and set alerts to notify users when The upgrade is a welcome change for students who have used the older version of the TransLoc app. Morgan Emery, a 22-year-old UF computer science junior, said she uses the updated app to commute to campus from her apartment and appreciates the upgrade because it helps take some stress out of her morning routine.

She said she ricanes that came to Gainesville in 2004: Ivan, Charley, Frances and Jeanne. That fear made me want to cut up fabric, Vigilante said. All of her quilts are named after dogs she knows and many of the materials used in her quilts are from cloth she has on hand, such as old Lucky Brand shorts or bathing suits. The exhibit coincides with The Thomas Centers 35th anniversary, which will showcase the art of regional artists in the gallery throughout the year, said Russell Etling, interim manager of cultural affairs for Gainesvilles Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department. We try to broaden peoples perspectives on what is art and celebrate the work being done here in our community, Etling said.

If you are trying to register for a class, and the class is closed, the new system allows A six-month analysis of the current system revealed that it could address only 78 percent of the universitys needs. We think the new system will help us get closer to 95 percent of what the universitys needs are, Eldayrie said. He added that the new system, which will be implemented next January, will allow students to do more on their mobile devices. UFIT communications manager Tracy Gale said the new system will better serve the UF online community. This way it will be in a comprehensive system, which is easier for staff to use and easier for people behind the scenes to maintain, she said. Not only will it make things consolidated, but this also allows us to look at expanding services in the future.UF to revamp ISIS, mobile tech The mobile technology is not really as functional as we would like it to be for all parts of ISIS.Elias EldayrieUF Information Technology vice president

SwampCon, a free, two-day convention featuring a combination of anime, tablethemed events, has come to UFs Reitz Union for the third year in a row. Megan Jones, a 20-year-old UF accounting junior and main guest coordinator of the event, said it was a place where people interested in nerd culture can come hang out and have fun. A highlight of the event will include Whosical the Musical, a Doctor Who-themed musical. Theres also the Vocaloid Concert, a hologram concert featuring virtual pop which will feature local drag queens as well as some student performers, said Rachel Seaman, event coordinator and UF wildlife ecology and conservation senior, in an email interview. an attendance of about 2,000. It more than doubled last year with roughly 4,400 attendees, said Seaman. This year, about 4,000 guests are expected from throughout Florida. Some students will be coming to the event in costume, to celebrate the culture surrounding the convention. Luci Behar, a 19-year-old UF nuclear engineering sophomore, said she was dressing She said she likes seeing everyone elses costumes and that she was planning on attending with friends from out of town. Its close to home and its free, Behar said.

KELSEY MARTINEZAlligator Contributing WriterWhen an electrical transformer blew Wednesday evening, some downtown businesses had to make the best of the situation. Customers just had to pause and be patient. An underground fault triggered the transformer to explode at about 9:40 p.m. near the downtown Wells Fargo parking garage, leaving more than 1,900 Gainesville Regional Utilities customers without power, said Samantha Susock, a GRU corporate communications intern. About 1,500 customers regained power in less than a minute, and power was restored to the remaining 400 in a little less than an hour. Many restaurant and bar guests had to wait for the power to kick back on in order to resume normal business. Some businesses were able to make Sushi, located near the Hippodrome State Theatre. We turned it around into a positive experience by lighting some candles and handing out some champagne, said Dave Piasecki, the general manager of Piasecki said that customers were understanding and knew the power outage was not the restaurants fault. We lost about 30 minutes worth of sales, Piasecki said, adding that the restaurant had to give away some free food. However, other restaurants were not as fortunate. Some had to operate credit card machines on battery power until they died, and customers grew impatient. Mel Crawford, owner of Sweet Mels on University Avenue, said the night started as a busy one. But after the outage, she was forced to turn away customers and send employees home early as a safety precaution. It might not be much, but those extra to-go boxes and stuff like that costs us money, she said. It might only be pennies, but it still cost us something.Businesses cope with outageCRIME ADAM LICHTENSTEIN and JENNA LYONSAlligator Staff jlyons@alligator.orgFormer Gators football player Jarvis Jaray Moss was arrested Monday night after police said he tried swallowing the 29-year-old UF student on charges of tampering with evidence and marijuana possession, according to an arrest report. a car Moss was riding in for running a stop sign, according to the report. juana coming from the car and saw Moss chewing something. food, but when he opened his mouth, juana. cers he smoked weed earlier but denied eating it, according to the report. chua County Jail at about 9 p.m. He was released on his own recognizance Tuesday afternoon. Moss was originally recruited to Florida by Ron Zook, who coached the Gators from 2002 to 2004. However, it was under Urban Meyer that Moss excelled. In 2005, Moss led the Gators with 11 tackles for loss and 7.5 quarterback sacks. During Floridas 2006 title run, Moss vaulted himself into stardom, famously blocking a South Carolina to secure a 17-16 victory for the Gators. 7.5 sacks, Moss was selected with the 17th pick in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. 53 games, recording 34 tackles and six sacks. He has not played in the NFL since his contract with the Oakland Raiders expired in 2011.Police: Jarvis Moss ate weedCars wont be allowed to park on the plazawhich is considered an important element of the design project. The organization will have a designated area on the west side of the plaza where students can sit and eat. Another change will be to prevent vehicles from driving or parking on the plaza area. But, Rozear said, the design will still welcome tailgaters. Carter Boydstun, senior philanthropic adviser for the Foundation, said the plazas revitalization is dependent on donations from interested alumni. The project has been planned for four years, going back and forth between adminIts a big deal and requires getting everyone in the administration on board, he said. Final drafts of the plazas design will be taken to the Land Use and Facilities Planning Committee on Feb. 4, Rozear said. The design will make the plaza even more functional than it is now, Boydstun said. Right now its not set up to hold an event or function. However, a main obstacle the renovation may face could be student displeasure Miranda, a 21-year-old UF political science and international studies senior. Miranda, vice chair of the Reitz Union Board of Managers, was present when designs for the renovation were taking place. From my experience, he said, students mind a lot when construction or renovation of any kind happens to places they often frequent. There was a lot of displeasure when the Reitz construction began, and it took a lot of PR and marketing to promote it. (Its) a place where people interested in nerd culture can come hang out and have fun.Megan JonesUF accounting junior PLAZA, from page 1Moss search, and if its put on the ballot, it will open up a lot of discussion. The club released a statement Thursday about the legislation. First of all, the current proposal to allow medical marijuana in the state of Florida does not override the federal prohibition on the leafy substance, thus putting Floridians at risk of federal indictment regardless of state law, it read. Furthermore, and more importantly, the current bill is worded in such a way that doctors could prescribe marijuana for nearly any reason. As for the next step in the campaign, Morgan said that if enough constitutional, United for Care will switch into full campaign mode. I want every student at UF to register to vote and then start educating the public, he said.Signatures need verifying WEED, from page 1

Hailey Innocent, an 18-year-old UF interior design freshman, said shes excited for the new store. Most people are on a budget, so if you can save a few bucks, thats awesome, she wrote. Thrift 5 and Thrift 5 Boutique are nonprofit stores, donating all of the money earned to local charities such as the Ronald McDonald House, Alachua County Humane Society and Gainesville Pet Rescue. Jason Bowman, CEO of Pledge 5 Foundation, which owns Thrift 5 and Thrift 5 Boutique, said the new boutique will help with months ago in August, and so far, the expenses outweigh the revenue, he wrote in an email.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7Inaccurate reporting in Tuesdays AlligatorIn Tuesdays article on the availability of The New York Times on campus, the Alligator made some serious errors in reporting. The article focuses on Student Body President Christina Bonarrigos efforts to reinstate the program, but it fails to mention that the program was initially canceled under Bonarrigos purview in May 2013, not May 2012 as stated in the article. The real story here is not that Bonarrigo made the free New York Times program reappear on campus, but that it took her over six months to bring back the service that ended because of her carelessness. To review the facts, SG had a contract with USA Today and the New York Times to have 460 copies of each paper available daily for students on campus. Under the budget that Bonarrigo oversaw as chairwoman of the senate budget committee, the readership program was assigned $40,000 for the 2012-2013 school year, even though the full cost was over $66,000. When Student Government neglected to pay the remainder, the newspaper companies were forced to void the contract. By this time, Bonarrigo had been elected student body president. According to reporting from the Alligator in May 2013, representatives of the bers of UF SG, and only heard from Bonarrigo after the Alligator contacted her for comment. From my personal experience serving as a student senator, Bonarrigo and other members of the Swamp Party-dominated SG dragged their feet and refused to take action to reinstate the beloved program. tainable solution for providing students with access to The New York Times, or any nationally recognized newspaper, the budget committee chose to cut future funding for the program entirely, while other budgets received only 5 percent cuts, or none at all. While Bonarrigos failure to serve the students is not news to me, the true disappointment was the Alligators lack of journalistic standards. Perhaps the Alligator should have referred to differing views or even their own reporting before they published such a pathetic puff piece. Helie Dharia former District D SenatorLetters to the EditorMore study space in Marston coming soonPresident Bernie Machen recently unveiled a plan to create more student study space on the brary. I could not be more supportive of this decision. According to the Student Experience in the Research University survey, UF students identify more study space as the biggest need at UF. The plan to add study space for nearly 700 students is a muchneeded improvement. Student Government recognizes the need for more study space, and we are working to create even more study locations on campus. One of my biggest priorities this semester is to secure funding to transform Newell Hall into a study space equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure to support the needs of students in the 21st century. Newell Hall, when combined with the new plans for Marston, will increase student study space by 40 percent. I will be working with External Affairs Chairwoman Abby Whiddon to lobby the state legislature in the upcoming session, but we are going to need some help. We will need the entire Student Body cials in Tallahassee that renovating Newell Hall is a project worth investing in. Go Gators!

OK, maybe thats just us neurotic folk, but regardless of how you deal with breakups, theyll always be a thing. In the words of the song Tupac sampled in Changes, thats just the way it is. An infographic published last week in Know More, a Washington Post Wonkblog, illustrates breakup statistics. The information presented is digestible and relatable to pretty much anyone whos ever been involved with anyone else. Through research compiled from the U.S. Census, various social media outlets and a Durex global sex survey, the data in the chart And while an internal dialogue and overspeculation of what went wrong may seem ently in your next dating adventure, maybe all you have to do to keep moving forward is revel in the fact that its not Monday and its a long way to December. (The day of the year youre most likely to cember, according to the stats.) Instead of focusing on the negatives and what day it isnt, remember that attitude is everything I know its cheesy, but its true. Whether you were the dumper or the dumpee, breakups arent pleasant. So lets try to look at this infographic through the eyes of Mr. Rogers or, you know, whomever you consider a positive role model. Maybe you were just broken up with, but according to the graphic, if you were born after 1984, its highly likely you were dumped in person or over the phone. At least you were acknowledged, and even though conversations that break things off can be tough, youll get through it. As Mr. Rogers once said, Often when you think youre at the end of something, youre at the beginning of something else. I realize I sound a little preachy quoting Mr. Rogers. So here are a few words for those of you whose role models are a bit rougher around the edges: Post break-up sex that helps you forget your ex. comfort in engaging in no-strings-attached coitus. According to the Know More infographic, 47 percent of men and 40 percent of women worldwide have had a one-night stand. Im not saying theyre for everyone, but if youre into that kind of thing, remember: Its Friday, and you live in a pretty big college town. OK, so what if youre not into role models, and none of this is helping to lift your spirits?

Breaking up is hard to do but it doesnt have to be that wayColumnMarjorie We are told the right to have an abortion was given to us by female-friendly politicians and a liberal Supreme Court, but thats just not true. Abortion was won by women like you and me speaking out, organizing, marching in the streets the Supreme Court and legislators followed our lead. In 1969, four years before the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, women in Redstockings of appeared at a New York City legislative hearing on abortion law reform, where several women tried to take the microphone from the scheduled speakers: 14 men and a nun. Barred from testifying, Redstockings shouted out its demands: that women testify as the real experts on abortion and for repeal of all abortion laws. Redstockings held its own abortion Speakout soon afterward at the Washington Square Methodist Church in New York, where memcriminal abortions before an audience of more than 300 people and the media. In 1970, New York State passed the most liberal abortion law in the country, legalizing abortion through the second trimester in most cases. When the Supreme Court ruled three years later in Roe v. Wade, it used the New York State law as its model. Womens control over their bod1989 Webster decision, the Supreme Court ruled that states could restrict abortion. Then-Florida-Gov. Bob Martinez called a special session to abortion following the Webster decision. Florida feminists, including called for a march on the capitol. Ten thousand women showed up on the Monday of the special session, and no legislation was passed. The aggressiveness of the antichoice movement has gained considerable momentum in the past three years, erupting last summer with the passage of anti-choice legislation in more than a dozen states, including Ohio, Texas and North Carolina. These measures included legislation severely restricting and, in some cases, banning abortion 20 weeks post-conception and imposing expensive and unnecessary regulations that force abortion clinics to close, as happened in Texas. More than 20 other states, including Florida, will have similar legislation pending this year. Just like when women won the right to abortion in this country through a movement, we need a these attacks and win more rights for free and full access to all forms of birth control, including contraception and abortion. We believe women should control when and if we have children. To get involved, come to our next tle Hall, Room 119, or contact us at or (352) 575-0495.

GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandAfter a full week off, Florida is poised to return to action against Georgia on Sunday at 1 p.m. in the OConnell Center. The Gators dropped their last contest to then-No. 12 LSU 82-68 on Sunday in Baton Rouge, La. With an extended break, Florida should be well prepared for Georgias arrival. Bye weeks are critical, coach Amanda Butler said. Youve got to make sure that you get your rest in. Youve got to make sure that you take advantage of maybe putting in a few extra things or tightening up some work on us. Historically, the Bulldogs have dominated the Gators. In the 62 games played against one another, Georgia leads the series 48-14. But if this years statistics mean anything, Florida should have the upper hand this time around. The Gators are 9-1 at home this season and are 3-1 in Southeastern Conference play, and the Bulldogs are 3-3 away from Athens, Ga., and 1-4 against conference opponents so far this season. However, both teams appear to be meeting at watershed moments Sunday. Georgia is coming off a narrow victory against Arkansas on Thursday, while Florida is looking to get back to its winning games last week against LSU. The key to Sundays matchup, and most SEC games, will be in the paint. In every SEC matchup, you have to look at whats going to happen in the paint and make sure youre putting yourself in the best situation possible for that battle, Butler said. Thats probably where well start. Winning in the paint will be a tall order for the Gators. Florida is down to seven active players while Georgias bench is 12 players deep and littered with 6-footers. Theyve got good size, Butler said. Theyve got some really dynamic players. Were going to have to play a really complete ball game coming off the heels of a loss on Sunday, a much better game in the paint. Aside from last weeks loss to LSU, Florida has been strong throughout conference play with wins coming against Mississippi State, Arkansas and, most impressively, Although the Gators have played well, stand. One of the things I like the most about where we are is that we are 3-1 and our kids are disappointed about that, Butler said. There was no, Valiant effort. Lets pat ourselves on the back because we were one woman down. They were disappointed. They knew they hadnt played well and werent looking for any excuses in that loss. I think weve got great indications, so far, in the way that weve played and how we have to play to be a very good team and beat very good teams.

Finney-Smith. Im proud of him, Finney-Smith said. He played good. He just does all the little things. People dont notice what Will does. Hes a great defender. Hes always talking. Hes a great leader. He will tell you what you need to hear. I love him for that. Prather questionable: Casey Prather (bone bruise in right knee) is closer to returning to the Gators. The senior forward participated in non-contact work during Thursdays practice and is listed as questionable for No. 7 Floridas matchup at Auburn on Saturday at 4 p.m., the school announced Thursday. He sat out the full-scrimmage sessions of practice Thursday and eventually went to the training room to receive more treatment. Prather has missed UFs past two games since waking up with swelling in his right knee the morning of Jan. 9. In 14 contests this year all starts Prather has averaged a teamand career-best 17 points on 62.4 shooting, along with 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. night and apologized to Faehn immediately after Saturdays meet. She texted me right away after the meet that night and said Im really sorry; wont happen again, Faehn said. And Im like, Listen, youre human. Were going to get there. Dont worry. Faehn said Tuesday she would like to see Caquatto compete as an all-arounder at Auburn, but Faehn had not she had not had a chance to evaluate Caquatto since the team returned from California. I know she wants to, Faehn said of Caquatto competing tonight. Auburn may not get to see Caquatto compete all-around, but the Tigers will be the second team ever to get a look at sophomore Morgan Frazier. Faehn plans to have Frazier exhibition a vault routine against the Tigers. After enrolling at UF late in Spring 2013, Frazier never once competed with the Gators but did exhibition her vault routine in a Jan. 8, 2013, meet against Missouri. Kytra Hunter, who was honored as SEC Co-Gymnast of the Week after winning allaround with a score of 39.375 against UCLA, will likely lead Floridas all-around effort against Auburn. Beyond a few individual let downs at UCLA, Faehn is also looking to improve her squads energy on the road. To compete aggressively again on the road, we have to really create the energy ourselves and I think that we were a little lacking in some of that energy, Faehn said. We really need to be a little bit louder in that sense. Gators opened their season on the road and 11 years since they began a season with to backto-back road meets. Faehn said shes eager to debut her 2014 squad in the OConnell Center on Jan. 24 against Georgia. Oh, I cant wait to be back into the ODome, Faehn said. Were so used to starting here, in the ODome and to have two on the road in the beIts how the schedule is, but Im looking forward to getting back here. FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffCory McGee runs in the Southeastern Conference Cross Country Championships on the Mark Bostick Golf Course on Nov. 1, 2013. McGee won Alligator File Photo McGee gained experience competing at IAAF World Championships in MoscowChampionships. Donning the red, white and blue and getting to know those people was so incredible, she said. I totally immersed myself in the experience and just spend every minute getting to know the team. McGee said there were eight men chosen from UF, but she was the lone woman chosen for the national team. She said it felt like her and the men had the same talent and capabilities. With the combination of running cross country complied plenty of credibility and accolades for her collegiate career. Her career bests include a 4:32.10 mile run during the 2013 indoor season, and a 2:05.39 800-meter run in the outdoor season of 2012. As a testament to her success, she was named to the Bowerman Trophy womens preseason watchpearance. The Bowerman is regarded as the Heisman Troto the top male and female athlete in NCAA track the award, which has been given out every year since 2009. I know a few of them and to kind of feel like Im McGee said. To look back on people whove won this award in the past is a humbling experience. I love track so much, so if I could potentially win the Bowerman award, that would just be the meet of the season. 800-meter at the UAB Blazer Invitational on Jan. 11, setting a meet record with a time of 2:07.47. McGees win was one of 13 Florida event victories at the meet. Paul Spangler, the assistant cross country and distance coach, who has trained his star athlete while at UF, said she has done extremely well. Spangler said she is a competitor that is not intimidated by other runners and wants to compete against the best in the world. What seems like a minimum amount of events left for McGee to compete for is far from what lies after her collegiate career. Its another stepping stone towards what I hope to do in the future, McGee said.
