The Turlington preacher or any campus preacher is an inevitable part of the college experience. In a perfect world, these preachers would be respectful, say their peace and be open to thoughtful discussion of religion and spirituality. Unfortunately, such is not always the case. Talk to anyone who has crossed the Turlington preachers path, and he or she will tell you about the name-calling and harassment on the basis of sexuality, religion or clothing choice. Aside from the obvious that harassing students is hardly a Christlike tactic for getting people interested in Christianity the Turlington preachers words undeniably fall under the category of hate speech. Hate speech presents a moral dilemma for champions of civil rights. According to the American Bar Association, In would provoke a reasonable member of the group about whom the words are spoken. For example, a person cannot utter a racial or ethnic epithet to another if those words are likely to cause the listener to react violently. However, under the First Amendment, individuals do have a right to speech that the listener disagrees with and to speech that is offensive and hateful. In regards to the great free-speech-during-hate-speech debate, the American Bar Association suggests that policies should punishable. In doing so, laws and policies would discourage bad behavior not bad beliefs. On our open campus, speakers shouldnt be prohibited from publicly delivering a message. However, singling out students should have a consequence, whether it be a citation or an ejection from campus. According to the UF Student Conduct Code, As an educational institution, the University recognizes that the transmission of knowledge, the pursuit of truth, and the development of individuals require the free exchange of ideas on any subject whether or not controversial, self-expression, and the challenging of beliefs and customs. This often (although not always) requires respectful speech and conduct ... the University requires civility, respect, and integrity in the curricular program and encourages these behaviors in other activities among all members of the student community. UF has the ability to discourage the Turlington preacher from singling out students and insulting them. This incident should send a message to the university that action is required to make students of every religion, ethnicity, race, sexuality and gender feel safe. 77 TOTAL VOTES53% YES 47% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgFridays question: Do you agree with the Stand Your Ground law? Todays question: Do campus preachers make you uncomfortable?Plan to help homeless a step, not a solutionNine years ago, a 10-year plan to end homelessness began in Gainesville. It only takes a walk past Bo Diddley Community Plaza downtown to see how well that went. To be fair, homelessness is not an easy issue to tackle. But Gainesville is a small town with a big problem. The city had the second largest growth in its homeless population among smaller cities, according to a 2012 study by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. After 10 years, there might be a solution but dont get your hopes up. Late last year, the city purchased the former Gainesville Correctional Facility to turn it into what they envision as a one-stop center for the homeless a place for societys most neglected to get food, shelter and access to other services that can help them empower themselves. Its being run by the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Homelessness is a multipronged issue. It can stem from anything from economic hardship to mental illness. This new center for the homeless it has yet to be named would address different aspects of the issue to help reduce it overall. In theory, this is a fantastic idea. It helps get at the root of homelessness by offering services beyond a bed to sleep in. Ideally, it is a temporary stop to help people get on their feet and off the street. Unfortunately, even this solution leaves a lot to be desired. For one, the goal isnt to end homelessness, despite that 10-year plan. According to WUFT, the executive director of ACCHH said the ultimate goal is to relocate the homeless from their usual residence of Bo Diddley Plaza. Hiding homelessness has become all the rage. Cities across the nation accomplish this by criminalizing the act of being homeless, throwing people in jail for being without a home. Other times, feeding the homeless is criminalized. Take the case of the Rev. Hugh Hollowell in Raleigh, N.C. He and a group of volunteers set up near a park with breakfast sandwiches and coffee only to be told by the police that if he served anyone, he would be arrested. Apparently a permit is required to serve food in the park, which costs $800 per day. Gainesville hasnt gone that far. Instead, it will force the homeless almost four miles away from the town square, there are two bus routes that go to the center, which is near Gainesville Regional Airport. They dont answer how the homeless are expected to pay the fare, however. Even if ending homelessness was the plan, this new shelter doesnt go far enough to accomplish it. Only four more space on the property. Other buildings will house different programs that will be chosen by the community. Another issue is that the center will only be able to house 100 people: 50 men and 50 women. That is far short of the 2,094 homeless people counted by the ACCHH in 2012 (, the latest count available. A decade after a 10-year plan to end homelessness was implemented means it should be nearly gone. Instead, this multimillion-dollar project will reduce it by less than one-tenth of 1 percent. The City of Gainesville has done little to eliminate homelessness at the end of its 10-year plan. This new, onestop center for the homeless is a start, but if it is going to make a difference, it must be made more accessible to more people. For now, the only hope is that this center will make a difference for the few who are able to utilize it. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His columns appear on Thursdays.

Intended to be music people can connect to, Social Music is a genre-bar hopping compilation of jazz, funk, classical and ragtime that is refreshing to listen to. Pianist Jonathan Batiste was raised in New Orleans, born into a long line of jazz musicians. He started playing music at a young age and eventually went on to study at The Juilliard School, where he met the rest of Stay Human: Joe Saylor, Ibanda Ruhumbika and Eddie Barbash. The album feels very easy, like a 12-track improvised jam session. The effortless sound that Stay Human has created makes jazz extremely accessible, especially for an audience not familiar with contemporary music. Although the album is at its best when the focus is on the instrumentals rather than the vocals, Let God Lead blends the two, making it one of the best songs on the album. mary and Star Spangled Banner are arguably overdone, Batiste manages to shell out a new take on the classics. Social Music goes besic. Its jazz that leaves a serious impression. Jon Batiste and Stay Human will be performing tonight at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Jon Batistes new album deliversALEXA VOLLAND tunes MARJORIE NUNEZBroken Bells latest release After the Disco is, as the name implies, the perfect soundtrack to unwind from a late night of dancing. The opening song Perfect World paints the scenery of passing city lights on a highway you have to take to get home when the of any driving-heavy video game. Although the atmospheric synthesizer sets a soothing tone, the repetitive beats, such as the ones in Perfect World and After the Disco, give listeners the option to keep the party going. The tone of the album is cohesive but misleading. The tracks that give you the incentive to dance are accompanied by lyrics like just another day into a useless night, which explore complex themes like the sadness that comes with being let down by ideals of love. The songs on the album that move away from the are reminiscent of the duos respective musical backgrounds before Broken Bells. Medicine, one of the more acousticbased songs, could easily double as a hit on an album by The Shins. In songs where the focus is on the melody, James Mercer pushes his vocal range to echo the high-pitched register, but not past the point where youll stop listening. Although the album has the means to ing its full potential its just as likely to be reduced to a dance party in your car.Broken Bells new album perfect for After the Disco GatorAid Leslie Cole is a 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior. Her column runs every Thursday. Need some advice? Send a question to My girlfriend just recently left me for another guy. Ive been hooking up with random chicks, but its not helping. How do I get over her? -Anonymous I love my girlfriend, but Spring Break is in, like, two weeks. Is it wrong to ask for a break? -Anonymous Chuck Palahniuk said it best: Thats the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone having a good f***ing life. Maybe youre not happy without her at this specific moment, but you were happy before her, and youll be happy again. The old saying, The best way to get over somebody is to get under another, doesnt always work, other than the numbing effect, so maybe protect your little soldiers for a while and stay away from easy Midtown ass. You were in a committed relationship for a decent amount of time; now its time to focus on you. Be a man, bro. Rub some dirt on it. Chug some whiskey, and chase it with Natty Light. Make every day max out day and find that dusty Jenna Jameson movie your ex never knew you had. If you cant love yourself, who the f*** will? Yesterday, a friend of mine said every strong relationship flourishes because both partners get at least one hall pass a year. I dont know if I agree with this theory, though, because if youre supposedly in love with your girlfriend, I doubt youd even think about touching another girl. If you think youd really be into a break, know that youre not going to be the only one getting a hall pass, sweetie. If your relationship is dull enough for you to want to see other people, shes probably wanted to hop on some other D that isnt as boring as yours for months now. If you guys give each other a freebie, know that she has the potential to meet someone better than you. He, whoever he is, is going to be going to be tall, chiseled, charming and have a huge you-know-what. He wont fart during her favorite television show. He wont accidentally forget to go downtown on the one night a week he actually f**** her. He wont drink milk straight from the carton. Hell be everything shes ever wanted, and hell be INSIDE OF HER. Think about it. Still sound appealing?

UF LOST BY FIVE IN 3. GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandFlorida is out for redemption against Missouri. Last season, the Tigers eked out a 69-64 victory against the Gators in Columbia, Mo. At the time, Missouri was third in the nation in three-pointers made. Heading into the OConnell Center tonight, the Tigers are fourth in the NCAA, averaging 9.4 threes per contest about 28 points per game. Missouris played fantastic and beat a very talented Auburn team at Auburn, coach Amanda Butler said. Theyre playing well; shooting the ball better than anybody in our league. Butler is wary that such a strong three-point effort could potentially throw a wrench into a game plan. The thing that Im concerned with is that it will put us in a mindset to shoot more threes, she said. That was what I felt like happened to Auburn in their last ballgame, in which (Missouri) was up 42-14. A team like Auburn doesnt typically shoot a ton of threes. All of a sudden they got into that groove of shooting shots they dont normally take. Auburn is 13th in the Southeastern Conference in three-point shots made per game averaging only 2.8 and is dead last in the conference in three-point percentage, shooting 26 percent. Against Missouri, Florida went 3 for 18 from beyond the arc. I think it puts you in a mindset where youve got to be contesting, because they dont just shoot a lot of them, they hit a lot of them, Butler said of Missouri. As a rebounding unit, it puts you in a different spot, too. Youre going to have a lot more longer rebounds. For sophomore January Miller, facing a team that gives up long rebounds is just what the doctor ordered. Thats something Ive been working on, just trying to read where the balls going, Miller said. More long rebounds makes it easier for you to get out in transition. It gives more of a chance for our guards to go and rebound; puts less pressure on the post. Coming off a less than desirable performance against Georgia on Sunday, Miller is poised to redeem herself against Missouri. Against turned the ball over three times and fouled out. A major aspect that Butler has preached since the recent losses to both Georgia and Arkansas has been better ball management. They imposed their defensive style on us in very different ways, Butler said. Arkansas pretty much sat in a zone and they had one player that really got out in the passing lanes and we never really adjusted to her. Georgia was a little more aggressive, a little bit more trying to make plays. With tonights game being Floridas penultimate home game this season, the Gators are still maintaining a simple approach to the rest of their season. Well, weve got to win, Butler said. You have to win each possession; youve got to win each half. In our game, its kind of broken down into four-minute segments because of the media timeouts. So youve got to try to win each four-minute segment of every ballgame.UF looks to avenge loss to Mizzou 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2014 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffJanuary Miller drives the ball to the net during Floridas 87-69 win against Auburn on Jan. 26 in the OConnell LOGAN MCGUIREAlligator writer@loganjmcguireThe No. 1 Gators mens swimming and diving team is second on the leaderboard after picking up two gold medals, two school records and an SEC record performance for Floridas relay squads on Day 1 of the Southeastern Conference Championships and three gold medals and another school record on Day 2. yard medley relay that was decided by nearly one-third of a second between No. 1 Georgia and No. 8 Tennessee while No. 5 Florida was less than a second behind, earning the bronze. In response, the mens competition took to the theatrics also as the Gators out-touched No. 6 Georgia by 0.2 seconds due to a come-from-behind career performance from senior Brad deBorde. When the 14-time All-American sprinter and UF record holder in the 50-yard freestyle took off from the block, his team trailed by a third of a second and was DeBorde threw down a 18.52-second swim, half a second faster than the rest of the pool and 0.6 seconds faster than the school record he posted in last years 50-yard free at SECs. He pionships while registering an NCAA A cut and new school record, stopping the clock at 1:24.53. I knew we were behind going into my leg, but I had faith in Marcin [Cieslak] to catch us up a little bit, and then I was going to give it my all, deBorde said. Thankfully, I made a really nice turn and had some really good breakouts, which Ive been working on a lot. It worked out for us and I was happy for us to come out on top. Setting records is rare unless youre deBorde. His success on Day 1 was just foreshadowing for what would ensue. DeBorde broke his 50-yard free record in prelims, swimming the race in 19.05 seconds. With the top seed in the that avenged the dual-meet loss he suffered to rival Auburn swimmer Marcelo Chierighini the 2013 SEC Champion in the 50-yard free. The Gators reigning 2013 national champion 800-yard freerelay team left the competitors eating their bubbles. Florida went 6:13.03, more than four seconds faster than second-place Auburn, setting a school record and SEC record en route to the second gold for the Gators on Day 1. We were defending our championship and it is a really big race for our program. We are focusing on one event at a time, It was a good outing for the Gators womens team, picking rival Bulldogs won both relays. It was a pair of season bests for Florida. But it continued struggling to break though the tough surge that Georgia amassed on Day 2. The Bulldogs have won every Florida trails by more than 150 points in second place. Diving hasnt been the Gators strength this season, but sophomore Kahlia Warner delivered a career-best performance on and earning her eighth place. Really good start to this evenings meet, Gators coach Gregg Troy said. Marcin Cieslak and Brad deBorde kind of set the tone They just refused to lose.Gators in second at SEC Championships UF Swimming
