09/21/2018 12:43pm

Gov.

March for our lives reaches out to Tampa voters
09/22/2018 3:26pm

by Alejandro Romero The first annual Bands & Ballots event took place at Curtis Hixon Park on Saturday September 15. The event was sponsored by March for Our Lives Tampa, and was organized by two high school students. Alyssa Ackbar, 17, is senior at Robinson High School in South Tampa. “I think the people here obviously having a good time.” said Ackbar She and Macy McClintock, her co-head organizer, got the idea from one of the fathers of the people on her team. “From then [we] kinda just rolled with it, starting to come up with ideas.” said Ackbar. Soon after she McClintock got to work. Filing for permits and reacahing out to parkland surivors David Hoggs and Emma Gonzalez who were not available to interviews. “I think that were kinda changing the stigma by putting on this event that brings music and gun violence—talking about gun violence as well.” said Ackbar. But that’s not all a booth was available to get anyone registered to vote ahead of the upcoming elections. Apart from that several other vendors were in attendance, including some candidates running for local government. “We need to go out and show the government that this is what [...]

Second chances in the sunshine state: Enfranchising felons
09/20/2018 8:00am

by Aaron Betancourt Florida is currently one of four states, including Iowa, Kentucky and Virginia, where convicted felons accused of non-violent crimes are not granted their voting rights after serving time in prison, parole or probation. Depending on the charge, convicted felons must wait anywhere between five to seven years upon release before applying to the Executive Clemency Board for restoration of this right. After submitting their application, if a felon is found eligible, they are assigned to examiners that decide if their voting rights will be restored. Amendment 4, the Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative, will be on the voting ballot on Nov. 6, 2018. This will ultimately determine whether or not the amendment will automatically restore the voting rights of convicted felons. This is a very polarizing issue. Some may see felons as societal delinquents and are in agreement with revoking their civil right to vote. In their eyes, the felons must suffer the consequences of their actions. I look at it from a different perspective. Everyone goes through their highs and lows. Some people overcome their lows gracefully and others succumb to it. We’ve all made mistakes and deserve a second chance. If a drug dealer [...]

Video Arts Festival shakes up UT
09/20/2018 8:00am

by Sydney Rhodes On Wednesday, Sept. 12, the International Video Arts Festival premiered their first Video Arts Festival at UT,  the only one to come to America. The festival took place in the campus’ Reeves Theatre, while the theatre shook from the bass as the screen filled with overlaying motion videos. The art show displayed videos from around the world from ten different countries: Brazil, Portugal, Mexico, Chile, Italy, England, Sweden, France, Uruguay and the United States. New work was selected to premiere at each of the shows. The videos that were selected were all related to the field of video arts, based off two different trends. One was titled video arts, which is experimental video explaining narratives or visuals. These are overlaid images that create an artistic video. The other trend was video music, that pushes the boundaries of visual effects and synchronizes with an electronic bass. In this trend, artwork is created using music to form the visuals. Artists are creating these pieces for pure enjoyment and to explore the possible effects in video and the visuals that can be created through music. The inaugural festival at UT was commenced by Santiago Echeverry, associate professor of film, animation [...]

UT welcomes Southern Circuit Tour, a film series featuring diverse directors, themes
09/20/2018 8:00am

by Genoa Gibson This year UT will be a venue for the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, a touring circuit produced by South Arts, a nonprofit organization based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Through an extensive screening process, filmmakers submit their documentaries and narrative style films to be shown at selected venues throughout the South. Sara J. Lauro, assistant professor of English, and Aaron Walker, associate professor of film, animation and new media, worked together to get UT chosen as a venue. What makes this film screening so unique compared to others is that the filmmakers will be present at each screening for a Q&A, according to the South Arts website. Students will have the opportunity to connect with the filmmakers in a very intimate way and be able to fully immerse themselves in an experience that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to receive at the movies or at home. Meeting face-to-face with a director is especially important, not only to anyone who is interested in film, but anyone who has an interest in learning and becoming more aware of the social issues portrayed in the films. “While engaging with the filmmakers is particularly important for my students in [...]

The Red Tide continues its killing path
09/20/2018 8:00am

by Gabriela Mendez The algal bloom, or “Red Tide,” poses a great harm to sea life for many years. These past few months have been more harmful than normal as this has been the longest outbreak that has been recorded. High numbers of sea life have died and many humans have gotten sick due to the harmful toxins that are released into the ocean and air by the marine microorganism called ‘Karenia Brevis’ as well as the lack of nutrients in the ocean.    This red tide has now reached the southwest coast, covering 125 miles of Florida’s coastline and is expected to grow even more. Clearwater Beach, where a vast number of UT students go, has been identified as one of the places with high contamination. In a research study made by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation and Commission it was stated that “In Southwest Florida for over the past week Red Tide was observed at background to high concentrations in or offshore of Pinellas County, background to high concentrations in Manatee County, background to high concentrations in Sarasota County, medium to high concentrations in or offshore of Charlotte County, background to high concentrations in or offshore of Lee [...]
