Combatting plastic pollution in Tampa Bay
04/22/2019 11:31pm

By Rachael Ramchand In Florida, serious water quality issues have been occurring for quite some time. In the Tampa Bay Area, water goat devices are usedto capture garbage that flows out of storm water discharge areas, preventing debris from polluting and causing damage to the ecosystem. These devices strain the water, collecting hundreds of pounds of garbage, which would have ended up in the water if not blocked. The water goats are managed by Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and adopted by Phi Theta Kappa a group that cleans the water goats monthly. There are 13 water goat devices in the area, and according to the Tampa Bay Times, in the month of May, these water goat devices each caught, on average, 142 pounds of garbage last year 73 percent of which were plastic bottles. This environmental issue that is threatening Floridas waters can be largely due to laws that were passed, stating that cities are not allowed to ban the use of plastic bags, containers nor plastic foam. Fortunately, there are ways to help combat this environmentally-threatening issue, and the local advocates in Tampa have already begun. The prevention of plastic pollution in the Tampa Bay Area initially began ...

Unity is a mindset of winners
04/22/2019 1:39pm

By Paige Johnson Babe Ruth, one of the greatest and most well-known baseball players of all time once said, The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they dont play well together, the team wont be worth a dime. Team comradery has a lot to do with a teams long term success. Of course skill level still matters, but more often than not, the team with the most talent doesnt bring home the winning trophy. Skill is just one part of being great. Without the right mind set and having a sense of cohesiveness, teams will face a lot of adversity especially when they enter the more important parts of their seasons. Teams that consist of friends that trust each other and have spent time to build relationships with one another are more fun to be a part of. They have a better turn out at practices and games, which positively impacts the success in competition. As a senior on the UT womens lacrosse team, I couldnt agree more with this philosophy. So far, this season has been different than any other ...

The environmental impact of St. Pete pier solar parking canopy
04/18/2019 4:33pm

By: Francisco Navarro The era of using fossil fuels as a major resource is over, and the planet is begging us to commit to renewable energy. The journey ahead will be one of extreme difficulties, but if we make the effort and start switching to easily accessible clean energy solutions, we can start making a difference. Solar energy is one of many vital solutions for reverting climate change. Especially in Florida, where solar heat is abundant, its an indispensable addition to our community. The St. Petersburg Pier project, expected to open this upcoming summer, has set in motion the installation of a solar panel canopy for the Piers parking lot. St. Petersburg leased the agreement with Duke Energy Florida, a leading company who provides renewable energy solutions across the U.S. The solar panel car canopy is estimated to cost $2 million. However, Duke will pay for the system in full and is solely responsible for its construction and maintenance through its duration. Although a million-dollar parking lot may be expensive, its an investment that is crucially needed. This new feature not only provides shaded parking from the hot Florida weather, but its sole purpose is to create a positive impact ...

Stadium sustainability brings fans closer to their team
04/18/2019 4:30pm

By Travis Politakis With the increase in popularity of sports over the last century, came the increase and demand of bigger and better stadium venues. Stadiums such as Bostons Fenway Park, Chicagos Wrigley Field and Green Bays Lambeau Field are some of the most historic stadiums in all of sports that fans love to visit. But over the years, new stadiums have been built with nicer amenities, larger capacities and are also becoming more sustainable. Since 2014, five new stadiums have arisen across the United States in all four major professional sports. Stadiums use a large number of resources because they hold 50,000 plus people for over three hours. From food, cups, parking, restrooms, lights, groundwork and electricity, employees work tirelessly to provide fans with an intimate experience to watch their favorite teams and players perform. One stadium that offers this experience is Chase Field of the Arizona Diamondbacks. At the entrance of the stadium, Chase Field has the APS solar pavilion. The pavilion provides fans with shade while waiting in line in the grueling Arizona heat in the dog days of summer. The pavilion also generates clean energy for the grid as it is made out of over 20 ...

04/18/2019 8:00am

By Lindsay Price UTs Faculty Sustainability Committee is tasked with finding ways to conserve energy, protect the environment and pioneer a more sustainable future on campus. Members of the committee brainstorm proposals to improve UTs environmental footprint, as well as organizing events and initiatives to encourage students to get involved. The mission often overlaps with their personal life as well three members of the committee have installed solar arrays on their homes. Stephen Kucera, associate professor of biology, stresses the importance of committee members living by their environmental values. He identified greenhouse gas emissions as the most worrying concern for the committee going forward. So what can UT do to remedy this issue Set a goal of net zero carbon emissions, both by reducing energy consumption and increasing the use of renewable power, said Kucera. This includes renewable power generated on campus. UT already has a sizable portfolio of buildings and activities in the pursuit of a greener, more sustainable campus. Kucera has received funding from UT Student Government for three proposals he wrote to tackle this problem over the last five years. The cumulative amount received totals to $138,000 and the money has gone toward more sustainable buildings ...
