The SG Elections Commission ruled unanimously Tuesday night to issue a public reprimand to the party. The ruling was based on SG code 733.1, which says all candidates must qualify with the name theyre registered with at UF or with a reasonable variation of that name, subject to approval of the Elections Commission. Commissioner Matt Friedman said allowing candidates to run with nicknames unrelated to their given names could give them an unfair advantage. If you hear the name ... John Taco Burrito Supreme Smith, it sounds way cooler than someone elses name, Friedman said. If youre looking at candidates and you dont really know much about the platforms, youre probably going to pick the cooler-sounding name. The reprimand will be a written declaration to the UF campus containing the violation of the party and a warning discouraging similar future violations, Elections Commission Chairwoman Celeste Thacker wrote in an email. She said the reprimand will not restrict the Taco Libre Partys ability to campaign.

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014Alex Maminakis / AlligatorStudents wait in line Tuesday morning for tickets to the J. Cole concert featuring Chance the Rapper, presented by Student Government Productions. THE STUDENTS AND TACO LIBRE PARTIES DID NOT PARTICIPATE. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgThe Swamp Party was the only Student Government party to hold traditional platform generation events this semester. Swamp candidates and representatives settled into corners of the Plaza of the Americas, Turlington Plaza and near the Reitz Union on Monday and Tuesday to gather ideas from students for their platform. Students could also contribute by tweeting @swamppartyuf with the hashtag #swampcares. Susan Webster, the Swamp Party spokeswoman, said platform generation is important because it allows access to more student opinions for developing a platform. Swamp Party looks to build our platform off of the needs of the students, she wrote in an email. During the two days, students inked their ideas onto white concept boards. Some student ideas called for increased scooter parking, more 24-hour libraries and better laundry options for on-campus students. Other ideas included Gatorade fountains, better SNAP service and bicycle rentals. Katelynn Brown, a 19-year-old family youth and community science sophomore, added a check mark by an already written idea for more convenient parking options. It takes two seconds to write down (your idea) and maybe it will make a difference, she said. Lila Stallone, a 20-year-old telecommunication sophomore, also signed the platform board and said she felt her contribution was meaningful. Its important because everyones voice can be heard, she said. Even if youre not a representative or in Senate, it gives you an opportunity. The two other parties, Students Party and Taco Libre Party, did not participate in the platform generation event. Alex Klayman, spokesperson for Students Party, said its members will be announcing their platform within the week, and though they did not participate in traditional generation events, student input will drive the platform. Too often the result of platform generation is that the parties end up with the same common sense changes on their agenda, he wrote in an email. Our party will participate in open platform generation via accepting suggestions at our table/on social media/etc. Stephanie Kreitzer, co-president of the Taco Libre Party, said Taco Libre did not participate because they are focused on a single goal bringing Taco Bell back to campus. We believe we will be able to get more accomplished by staying focused on one thing at a time, she wrote in an email.One party generates platform C AMPUS BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Staff Writerbdupuy@alligator.orgTickets are still on sale for the J.

Iman Amaya, a 19-yearold UF engineering freshman, waited in line for more than four hours to get his ticket to the show. Amaya said he has seen J. Cole before and cant wait to see him perform again. Im ready to go, he said. I never really expect the caliber of people they are going to bring. Student tickets for the show are priced at $30 for general seating. With one Gator 1 Card, students can purchase up to four tickets at the OConnell Center box ofTickets will be available for purchase by the general public on Thursday for $20 for general seating and $40 Nicole Berrio, SGP public relations director, said students seem to be really excited about the upcoming concert. We want to bring an eclectic blend of artists that of UF students, said Berrio, a 21-year-old UF public relations senior. Last year we brought Kendrick Lamar, and we got a really big turnout. We wanted to bring someone comparable to Lamar. SGP paid $115,000 for J. Cole and $30,000 for Chance The Rapper. Torri Elie, a 19-year-old UF pharmacy freshman, said she thinks UF made a great choice in selecting J. Cole. His lyrics are about real life and not about drugs and sex like some other rappers, she said.Ticket sales start for J. Cole and Chance The Rapper concert NICOLE GIAQUINTOAlligator Contributing WriterThe horses are ready at the starting gate. The bell sounds. And theyre off, leaving A recent study conducted by Cummings Associates, a group commissioned by Florida horse racing and breeding organizations, found the industry generates about $1 billion, supplies more than 12,000 jobs in the state and pays $400 million in payroll to horse workers. That $1 billion industry makes us larger than spring training baseball is for the state of Florida, said Lonny Powell, CEO of Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association. So that just shows in relative terms how big the horse industry is in Florida. Floridas horse industry ranked No. 2 behind Kentucky in terms of economic impact, he said. The warm climate plays a big role. You gotta give the good Lord and Mother Nature a lot of credit, because if we didnt have the weather we have. I dont think wed have nearly the horse industry, Powell said. Summer Best, a Marion County horse farm owner and UF graduate student in the journalism college, said shes glad the horse industry is thriving in Florida. Most people arent aware of the tremendous economic impact that comes along with horse sales, breeding, showing, racing and recreational riding or driving. jets, and some horses as pets all contributing, said Best, who also worked for the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association for about six years. Just a short drive from Gainesville and with more than 70 percent of Floridas thoroughbreds, Ocala is one of the largest areas in the country where horses are trained and bred for races and breeding purposes, Powell said. Live Oak Stud is one of the more than 200 horse breeding and training centers in Ocala. The center has a couple hundred the racing community in Ocala, said General Manager Bruce Hill. He said he thinks Floridas horse industry will continue to advance in the upcoming years. The horse industry has survived recessions and depressions and economic booms for centuries. This is nothing new, Hill said. You have to ride those waves out, but this is something that the horse business people love.Florida horses gallop their way to big industry, study shows in compliance with the court decision and the law, Glisch said. After that, Florida Carry might just move on. Caranna said that if the college changes its policy to be in compliance, the group will drop its lawsuit but until then, Florida Carry will continue to sue any state campus that doesnt fall in line with the courts decision. a motion to dismiss within the early months of its lawsuit. Caranna said motions to dismiss are fairly common, and hes really not all that concerned. According to UFs motion to dismiss, Florida Carrys lawsuit fails to demonstrate standing for its claims that the university violated the Florida Constitution and various state statutes because of its anti-gun vehicle and residency policies. It also stated Florida Carry failed to mention even one of its members who was substantially affected by the universitys alleged violation of the December court decision. Caranna said he believes otherwise. I think they need to re-read our brief, because it does say that, he said. He said Florida Carry refuses to name its members in UFs faculty and student body, because they fear academic or other reprisals from the university. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said last week that she could not comment on the universitys legal proceedings. GUN, from page 1 Last year we brought Kendrick Lamar, and we got a really big turnout.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT HANNA MARCUS Alligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgIn a succinct Student Senate meeting Tuesday, senators unanimously approved funding for two groups, enacted the Senator Accountability Act and presented a new system for budget requests. Sen. Joseph Michaels and Sen. Joselin PadronRasines, who presented the new system, said the changes will make creating and managing budget requests easier for organizations. The system hasnt been updated in years. It was just something that wasnt cutting it anymore, Michaels said. Padron-Rasines said it will add percentages and dollar amounts automatically. Its updated live so the budget committee can comment on it and ensure organizations are following codes. Additionally, funding for the Iranian Student Association and Ph.D. Moms was unanimously passed, allocating about $2,000 and $1,200 to the organizations, respectively. The Senator Accountability Act, which passed through its second reading and now awaits a signature from the Senate President, was enacted. Senate President Pro Tempore Elliot Grasso said the act adjusts constituency periods to sync up with academic semesters. Its going to be able to hold senators a lot more accountable and able to reach out to their constituents, Grasso said.Senate approves club budget system IT WAS INSIDE A CHAPSTICK TUBE.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffFuture LeadersGainesville Mayor Ed Braddy speaks in Pugh Hall on Tuesday. The event ERICK EDWINGAlligator Contributing WriterUnemployment and low salaries are every college graduates nightmare, but a new online tool can help students avoid a career crisis. offers an online database that can guide students to make important career decisions after graduation. The website contains information about employment and salaries earned by graduates with various degrees from public institutions in the state of Florida. Its information is based on data from October to December 2011. The information, provided by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, is required by law to be accessible by the public, namely, students and their parents, according to BeyondEducations website. For some UF students, such as 22-year-old family youth and community science senior Alec Spaulding, salary is not a factor in choosing a career. As long as I have a roof over my head Im happy, Spaulding said. Other UF students, such as 19-year-old psychology sophomore Franklin Reuter, said it couldnt hurt to browse for employment information. Im pretty certain about what I want to do, but you have to think about whether youll even get a job, Reuter said. If the site said that barely anyone in my degree got employed after graduating, then I might look into something else. As a recent alumna, Kaydrianne Young, 23, said the website would have somewhat choices. I always thought about making enough to be comfortable, she said. Heather White, the director at UFs Career Resource Center, said she stresses to students that a degree or major does not equal a career. Employers look for skills sets and experience, White said. Even though the sites into students, White said, there are other resources that could broaden career possibilities for students. The CRC hosts employer relations seminars, workshops and presentations to help students, she said. We provide all imaginable resources that assist students into getting into the workforce after graduating, White said.New website helps guide students toward post-grad career choices If the site said that barely anyone in my degree got employed after graduating, then I might look into something else.Franklin ReuterUF psychology sophomorePublic has right to info

The Gators placed sixth out of 16 teams to end the two-day Sea Best Invitational on Tuesday afternoon, shooting a collective 918, 54 strokes over par. North Florida and Liberty ended round Liberty was declared the champion after shooting a lower score in round three. Florida entered Day 2 of the tournament, hosted at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Veference rival Tennessee and Winthrop. Because darkness had fallen before the teams could complete Mondays scheduled 36 holes, the Gators began Tuesday with Coach Buddy Alexander was pleased with his teams start this morning, but then things turned sour for the Gators. I think after nine holes we had moved guys were hanging in there and playing pretty well, and then the bottom just kind of fell out. Alexander had put together a young lineup for Sea Best, starting two freshmen and a sophomore transfer in addition to junior J.D. Tomlinson and redshirt junior Santiago Gavino. Young teams sometimes have to learn how to keep it going, Alexander said. Sometimes they have to learn to get a good start and sometimes they have to Sophomore transfer Richard Donegan ended his Florida debut tied for 24th place after shooting rounds of 73, 78 and 77, placing the highest of the Gators.

Now were halfway through the season and we have to start making progress, Alexander said. Hopefully the be a little better. RICHIE INCOGNITOS SUSPENSION WAS LIFTED TUESDAY. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI The NFLs report in the Miami Dolphins bullying case is expected to be released soon, shedding further light on the much-scrutinized, troubled relationship between offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito. The report likely will address whether the Dolphins organization was at fault for the locker-room culture that led Martin to leave the team last October. He later said he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito, and alleged their racial, aggressive and sexually charged comments played a role in his departure. Incognitos suspension by the team say that was an administrative move agreed to by all parties last year, and had nothing to do with any new developments in the league investigation of the case. Last week, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said he has an idea of what will be in the leagues report, and indicated he doesnt expect any new revelations. He said hes proud of the way the people running the franchise responded to the scandal. Martin has said he tried to be friends with Incognito. The two players traded more a thousand text messages in a years span, and the teasing and vulgar banter went both ways, with references to sex, drugs, violence and bawdy behavior, often in a jocular tone. The back-and-forth continued last scandal broke, Martin told NBC persistent vulgar language around the team made him feel trapped. Incognitos attorney Mark Schamel responded with a statement saying Martin was hiding behind false allegations rather than mance and myriad other issues. The NFL report will come from New York attorney Ted Wells three months after he was retained by the league to investigate the case, which inspired a national debate about hazing and workplace bullying. Wells will determine the role of coach Joe Philbin, his staff and Miami management in the case. One issue is whether anyone on the coaching staff ordered Incognito to toughen up Martin, who became a starter as a rookie in 2012 but played poorly at times. Martin has said people in the organization knew he was unhappy about comments teammates made to him, but he didnt talk to Philbin about it. The 6-foot-5, 312-pound Martin abruptly left the team Oct. 28. He was family in California and underwent counseling for emotional issues. Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 and sat out Dolphin report to be released Young teams sometimes have to learn how to keep it going.
