BRASCH Alligator Contributing Writer In 1991, all of UFs international services were scattered around campus. That same year, only 300 UF students were sent to study abroad. During the 2008-2009 school year, more than 2,200 UF students studied abroad, and this year, the UF International Center is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The UFIC not only provides studyabroad programs for students, but it also aids international students studying at UF during their stay in Gainesville. It also brings international program development into the classroom, said David Sammons, dean of the UF International Center. The center has a 40-person staff with It also has 70 peer advisers who are available to talk with students about their study-abroad experiences. A universitys principle function is to serve the world and make it a better place, Sammons said. The UFIC will hold a study-abroad fair Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Reitz Union Colonnade. At the fair, students can talk with people who have already studied abroad and learn more about available study-abroad programs. International Center honors 20th anniversary MINA RADMAN Alligator Writer Some sorority members in the United States will no longer be allowed to attend fraternity recruitment events, according to a new rule. The ruling applies to the 26 sororities that are part of the National Panhellenic Conference. It will be enforced at most of the 655 universities that National Panhellenic Conference members attend, including UF. The UF Panhellenic president was not available to comment. In October 2010, the organization urged its members not to attend fraternity recruitment events because women may be used to persuade men to pledge certain fraternities. Sororities that are not part of the organization can still attend fraternity recruitment events. I think its a stupid rule, said Kevin Stillerman, a member of Alpha Epsilon Pi.

DANA BURKEAlligator Contributing WriterIn the village of Cachitambo, Bolivia, located 13,550 feet above sea level, families rely on a single tap in the village center for clean water. UFs chapter of Engineers Without Bor ders, which recently took an assessment trip to Cachitambo, is helping to improve the quality of life for the 100 families located at one of the highest inhabited altitudes in the world by providing new clean water sources and greenhouses for the community. The community of Cachitambo relies heavily on the Cerro Rico mines, which are rich in silver and provide jobs for the residents. The mines are their main source of income, but they are also the main thing harming their environment, said Lopez, a 23-yearold UF civil engineering graduate. We are giving them another alternative use of water thats not just groundwater or contaminated streams. gineering major and the UF chapters Bolivia team leader, the water from the communitys main tap showed high levels of lead and ar senic. Theres a mine that dumps water into a extremely toxic. ... There is this one tap they use from the mountains thats the only safe said. On this trip, the students began setting up alternative water supplies for the community, including a gutter system with two 1,000-liter tanks for storage, receiving help from Engineers In Action, a Bolivian nongovernmental organization. Because of the lack of water, Cachitambo also experiences a lack of vegetation, said David Baden, UF Engineering Without Borders president. Because its so hard to grow food, most people end up moving away to a larger city like Potos and leaving their families behind, Baden said. In addition to the implementation of a new water collection system, the students also built a Pankar-huyu, an underground greenhouse common in Bolivia that protects plants from frost and stores moisture, Lopez said. We thought that with the water from the gutter and the tank that we installed it would make them more sustainable so they didnt an implementation trip next summer. Eventually our idea would be for every family to have their own greenhouse and be self-sustaining.Students make humanitarian trip


4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011Ashley Crane / AlligatorGetting the Word OutAateka Hamad, an interior design senior, passes out information for Islam on Campus ninth-annual Fast-a-thon, a one-day fast on Sept. 15. NA TIONAL THE ASSOCIATED PRESSDENVER An apartment complex near Colorado State University that used Facebook to advertise the biggest pool party of the year got more than it bargained for at least 2,000 people, most of them college students, showed up. It wasnt long before the police followed. Four people, including two CSU football players, were arrested at the Rams Pointe apartment complex in Fort Collins on Satur day. Ten people were taken to the hospital, most of them for overconsumption of alcohol or minor injuries. Some people came from as far away as Denver for this back-to-school party, Fort Collins Police Lt. Hal Dean said Monday. The partys Facebook page had nearly 3,000 registered people. Dean said police estimated at least 2,000 people showed up at the complex about 65 miles north of Denstreets while they cleared the complex. The use of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to spread word of everything from parties to freedom movements has increased exponentially in recent months. In some cases, the events have led to street trouble. In Los Angeles in July, a simple tweet by DJ Kaskade telling his followers about a free block party lured thousands of raucous ravers to the landmark Graumans Chinese Theatre. Things turned rowdy, with revelers hurling bottles at police and some jumping on a squad car. lance crews told police of the out-of-control party at the apartment complex. Dean said police werent monitoring the Facebook party site something some police agencies have begun to do after social media was used by rioters in England to mobs in several U.S. cities. The apartment complex did not respond to telephone calls seeking comment on Monday. Police said complex management could be cited under the citys nuisance gathering ordinance. Police said James Skelton, 21, was cited for third-degree assault. The charges were cited for disorderly conduct. Two others were charged. Skelton is a linebacker and Tiedgen a defensive end on the CSU Rams football team, assistant athletic director Gary Ozello said. Head Coach Steve Fairchild refused comment and said the incident is under investigation. Ozello said the athletic department has a strict social media policy that warns players not to post anything to embarrass the team.Facebook fuels messy megaparty at Colorado State University ONLY UNDERGRADUATE TEAMS FROM THE U.S. CAN ADVANCE TO THE FINAL ROUND.

The fruit stand, now Wards Super market, has seen a lot of change in the last 60 years. Wards will celebrate its 60th anniversary Sept. 10 with a customer appreciation event, including giveaways from local vendors and free massages. Bryan Ward, assistant meat manager and son of owners Billy and Trish Ward, said Wards has held similar events in the past, to which he estimated several thousand people came out. This year, the stores front parking lot will be closed off from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accommodate tents where local vendors will give cooking demonstrations and give away samples of food and natural products. [Itll be] just a nice, fun day, Trish Ward said. And for all the new students in town who dont know us, were hoping theyll come by and see what were all about. She said she and her husband, Billy, have owned Wards for 20 years, but theyve been involved with the store for closer to 40 years. Billy said his grandparents fruit stand graduated to a small woodafter opening. In 1979, Wards became moved into the building now occupied by Ceciles Consignment on Northwest Sixth Street. Wards moved into its cur rent location on Northwest 23rd Avenue 12 years later. In 1991, Wards had 12 employees, all of them family. Now the store employs about 100. Wards supports more than 350 local producers who make everything from kombucha and ice pops to candles and soaps. As the only family-owned and -operated grocery store in Gainesville, the Wards philosophy is to support as many local vendors as possible, Trish Ward said. Her hopes for the future of the store are simple. She said she would like to see it carry on through at least a few more generations. dren will carry it on through their adult years, she said. What their children will do with it Im not real sure, but it would be nice to see it carried on into the future.Wards Supermarket turns 60 next monthParty to include massages, samples Some people came from as far away as Denver for this back-toschool party.Hal DeanFort Collins Police department

On Aug. 17, an American history teacher at Mount Dora High School in Mount Dora, Fla., was suspended when it was reported that he posted his opposition to New Yorks recent legalization of same-sex marriage. Jerry Buells opposition was voiced on his Facebook page on July 25 where he said the decision by the New York Legislature almost made him throw up. He also said that same-sex mar riage was insulting to traditional marriage. His opposition, like many of those who support traditional marriage, was founded in Biblical principles. He wrote, God will not be mocked. When did this sin become acceptable? Buell, a teacher for 22 years, was suspended by the school district due to concerns that his beliefs might frighten or intimidate gay students. There is no doubt that, for many, these posts were offensive. And, had the school been a private employer, it would have However, the fact that his employer happens to be a government-funded public school, the water becomes murkier. Does he, as an American citizen, have the right to write about these issues, despite their offensiveness, on his personal Facebook outside the classroom? Buell is an edging-on-inappropriate religious zealot who is warns students, I teach Gods truth, I make very few compromises. If you believe you may have a problem with that, get your schedule changed, cause I aint changing! The school has not dropped an investigation of whether his syllabus threatens another aspect of the First Amendment, the establishment clause. Because Buell is a public school teacher, for the separation of church and state. But what is at the issue here is his speech on the Internet. The First Amendment should protect everyone, regardless of how much you want to punch them in the face for their idiocy. After the ACLU and the conservative Liberty Counsel became involved in this case, Buell was reinstated to his position. For all intents and purposes, the decision of the school district to protect Buells First Amendment rights was the correct one. He did not say these things in the classroom in the capacity disciplinary action. The fact that some students stumbled upon his post and were offended does not trump the fact that his speech was of a political nature and deserving of the utmost protection by the First Amendment. Hes still an asshole.Guest columnConcealed weapons could be safe solutionAt 6 a.m. Thursday, a 68-year-old man was loading copies of the Alligator for delivery into the back of his vehicle. As he bent into the trunk, a young male approached on foot and pointed a gun at him, threatening his life in exchange for a wallet. The entire encounter lasted approximately 35 seconds based on video evidence, and everything took place around 1,000 feet from the universitys campus. Given the brevity of this and most violent encounters, it would not be reasonable to expect law enforcement to be able to intervene the citizen was on his own in an alley with a dangerous interloper. From this, we learn several valuable lessons. Violent crime happens to innocent people even in in most violent encounters, which happen in seconds. If we place ourselves in the shoes of Thursdays victim, alone in an alley and staring down the barrel of a pistol faced with an inescapable truth: As individuals, we are responsible for our own safety and this responsibility exists in a world where the predators are armed no matter what laws we try to pass. dous asset in the hands of a licensed citizen who has undergone the training our state requires. To the uninitiated, it may seem extreme, but such misconceptions are the and unfounded fears. the general populous despite its broad availability, tells repeatedly provides the level of force necessary to immediately stop dangerous aggression. als who would otherwise be at a disadvantage against the typical youthful male attacker or attackers due to weight differences, upper-body-strength differentials or numbers. The state of Florida recognized this truth in 1987 when arms permits available to the average citizen. Since that time, lawfully armed citizens have com prised 1 to 2 percent of the population in Florida with violent crime rates far below those of the general population. Nationwide, there are anywhere from hundreds of thousands to millions of legitimate defensive gun uses per spread to 49 states, time and again disproving the Wild West-style predictions made by opponents of this critical freedom. Even though he was off-campus when he was victimized, if the man from the Alligator robbery was planning to deliver his newspapers at any of the many Alligator vendper Florida state law and university policy. Yet criminals bring weapons onto campus regularly as evidenced by the armed robbery in Corry Village in July 2009 or the robbery at knifepoint of a book buyback tent near Carleton Auditorium that happened in December 2009. This need not be the case. Seventy-one college campuses throughout the nation now recognize the intrinsic right to armed self-defense and allow their students, faculty and staff to carry concealed weapons on campus. As law-abiding adults, the time has come for UF students, faculty and staff to ask themselves whether they ought to learn more about this freedom and start asking why they are being denied it by ancient policies that are holdovers from a less-enlightened age.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011Courtesy to the AlligatorAmanda Orozco, 22, of Orlando, poses in a promotional photo for the Cirque du Soleil show "Dralion." The show is coming to the Stephen C. O'Connell Oct. 11-18. PERFORMING ARTS EMILY MORROWAlligator Writer Amanda Orozco used to do pull-ups every day in front of a window that looked directly out on her dream. Just two more, she would push her self. Two more could get her in that building across the street, get her the part, get her in the air. Now 22, Orozco is living her dream. She graduated from the National Circus School in Montreal and the next day was offered a contract from the building across the street the Cirque du Soleil headquar ters. ally. Since June 2010, the Orlando native has been a star of the Cirque du Soleil show Dralion on its North American tour. Dralion, which is coming to the Stephen C. OConnell Center Oct. 11 13, is a show that combines Chinese acrobatics with contemporary circus performances. Orozco is the female lead in the act entitled Aerial Pas de Deux, in which she por trays Azala, the goddess of air. She and her partner tumble through the sky above the stage performing acrobatics, suspended by nothing more than long bands of blue cloth. The aerial dancer said she knew she wanted to perform on the silks, or tissu, with Cirque du Soleil after her mom took 12th birthday. I was just in awe of it, she said. I liter ally came out of there and said, Mom, this is what Im going to do. After graduating from Ocoee High School in 2007, she applied to the National Circus School in Montreal the only school in North America that provides advanced circus arts training. After a four-day, 40-hour entrance exam that Orozco described as the most rigor ous thing Ive ever done, she was accepted and invited to join the 100 or so students training to join the circus. Orozco spent the next three-and-a-half years studying aerial contortion and minoring in trapeze and contortion. I never expected to achieve everything I dreamed of by the time I was 21, she said. Her professional life as a circus per former is now in full swing. Shes gotten her makeup routine down from two-and-aThough she knows her friends from high school are graduating college this year and starting jobs as teachers or accountants, her life. To Orozco, normal is a family of 54 people from 14 different countries. Its the 19 semitrucks that follow her from city to city carrying about 1,500 handmade costume pieces, 300 pairs of shoes, and washers and dryers. The young acrobat travels to a new city almost every week on the tour. Each week shell perform in up to nine shows. Orozco said she hasnt really gotten ner N.J., but when the tour stops in her hometown, Orlando, in September, she may lose some sleep. Its going to be a little intimidating for sure, she said. I wouldve never pursued such an outlandish dream had I not had incredible support, which is why its so amazing to come back to perform for them and why its going to be even more challenging. No longer a rookie, Orozco said she plans to continue performing with Dralion. She also hopes to go on the shows world tour. Shes taking online classes to work toward a degree in medicine, just in case, but said she cant really see herself wanting to do anything else. She loves performing too much. I get to wake up and do exactly what I want to do every day, she said. Tickets for the Gainesville show are on online at www.cirquedusoleil.com/dralion. Tickets range from $31 to $90.Twenty-two-year-old acrobat stars in Cirque du Soleil show COMPANY HAS CREATED THREE ANDROID APPS. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Contributing WriterParking, professionalism and dubstep have all become easier thanks to your fellow Gators. A recent UF graduate and a current UF masters student have started a cellphone application company. Niche Mobile so far has created Who Data?!, a virtual business card application; Gator Parking, an app parking is on the UF campus; and Wub Dub, a gadget application that plays dubstep sounds. Gator Parking and Wub Dub cost $1, but more applications costing around $5 to $10 should be coming soon, said Garrett Strobel, a cofounder of the company. The company operates by using ees incentive to work, and marketing. We dont need to build a viral app; we just need to target a viral market, said Matthew Carroll, Niche Mobiles other co-founder. He said that by making an application like Gator Parking that tar gets UF freshman unfamiliar with parking on campus, Niche Mobile only markets to 5,000 people. Currently, all the applications are offered only on Android devices.Carroll said the plan to make applications available on iPhones and iPads is on its way. The business started at the beginning of this summer. student interns, all in computer science or computer engineering at UF.Two UF alums start app-making company MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterA middle-aged father, covered in faded tattoos and muscles softened by time, watches toddlers play in a stairwell shaded by a government-subsidized apartment. He points to open second a baby to lean out of, noting the lack of protective screens. He motions to a neighboring apartment building with broken air conditioning and mentions the children that come home from school to study in their swelter ing Carver Gardens home on Southeast 15th Street. The man declined to give his name for fear of eviction but said his rent recently increased from about $60 to about $77 a month. About a month ago, Section 8 residents rent payments increased some by tens of dollars, others by 400 percent but conditions havent changed. The Gainesville Housing Authority, which manages Carver Gardens and other governmentassisted housing complexes, is facing a prospective shortfall of about $1 million after letting too many people into the housing voucher program. To compensate, the housing authority raised tenants rent rates, which are based on individual income. Were still working extremely hard to correct the problem locally, said Jane Morris, a Gainesville Housing Authority commissioner. It obviously is a situation. Morris, who lives in the 400 Building, a Section 8 complex that was not affected by the increase, said the organization was receiving less federal funding. She said the Gainesville Housing Authority voted to increase residents rates as an alternative to removing residents from the program. But the organization will search for a solution that steers clear of both issues at a Sept. 27 board meeting, she said. Gail Monahan, executive director of the Alachua County Housing Authority, said the situation was the result of a kneejerk reaction by the city housing organization. I think that was a very foolish thing to do, said Monahan, who was the executive director of the Gainesville Housing Authority until the organizations split in April. She equates the problem to a tilting ship. Had the leaders taken a step back and looked at the full picture, the ship wouldve righted itself. Instead, they jerked the helm. For those who call Section 8 housing their home, the most common response to higher rent is to keep their heads down. But between the broken toilets that never see a plumber and the peeling paint on the walls, theres plenty to complain about, the man with the tattoos said. The man just hopes, for the sake of the children in his neighborhood, the increased cost means increased care.Government housing prices jumpResidents struggle with rent

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011 Courtesy of Ralph Nataro Photography Florida Atlantic coach Howard Schnellenberger, who will retire at the end of the 2011 season, said Florida certainly should win Saturdays game. FLORIDA ATLANTIC GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer With 1:48 left and the Gators trailing by four, UF quarterback Wayne Peace was in trouble. His running lanes were completely the tight end was covered. Thats when he noticed fullback James Jones open near the right pylon and lofted a high, wobbly pass in his direction. Jones stumbled backward, jumped and snatched the ball from the air with only his right hand, securing the game-winning touchdown and propelling Florida to a 17-14 victory over Miami. The year is 1982, and an 11-year-old Will Muschamp looks on from the crowd. On the Miami sideline stands head coach Howard Schnellenberger, then in his 23rd year as a coach and fourth season with the Hurricanes. Now, 29 years later, the two will square off in a game that marks the dawn of Muschamps head-coaching career and the beginning of the end for Schnellenyear at Florida Atlantic. Its going to be different, Schnellenberger said. This will be the last time you have a chance to play Florida Its going to become more nostalgic. Schnellenberger, who has been a coach for 46 years and a head to call it quits. Hell still serve as an ambassador to FAU beyond the scope of football, but his time teaching the game will be at its end. Ive given this decision a lot of thought, Schnellenberger said. This appeared to be probably the most sensible time to make this announcement. Although Schnellenberger has been coaching longer than Muschamp has been alive, the two share similar roots. Bill Oliver, who Muschamp worked under as a graduate assistant at Auburn and cited as one paths with Schnellenberger at Alabama during the s. I felt like [Schnellenberger] was the best developer of quarterbacks and teacher of quarterbacks during that time, and on through the s, and where he is now today, Muschamp said. I have great respect for him and the football team that hell bring in here. Muschamp expressed admiration for Schnellenbergers national title at UM, successful renaissance of the Louisville and FAU programs, and even his lasting impact on the Miami Dolphins, which Muschamp noted in person as the Dolphins defensive coordinator in 2005. Schnellenberger was realistic about his teams chances Saturday, when the Owls will debut a starter at quarterback in Graham Wilbert. If they play a sound game and play a hard-fought game, they certainly should win, Schnellenberger said. Still, he said he values one last chance to play against the Gators, a team he said has been very special to him throughout his career. And he will leave The Swamp expectations for Muschamp. I wish him the very best of luck at Florida, Schnellenberger said. I hope its a long career. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. Unlikely paths intersect Saturdayoff from time to time, whether its because the quarterback isnt accurate, the receivers arent running precise routes, pass protection has broken down, whatever. A good running attack, on the other hand, is butter. If you can pound the ball, you control the game. Go watch Floridas 2009 SEC Championship loss, when the Crimson Tide gutted the Gators for 251 yards on 53 carries. Florida has to stop the run on defense, and it has to run the ball on offense. If Floridas front seven lives up to preseason hype, the pressure will be off the defensive backs. Oppodowns, which makes the job that much easier. Offensively, there are plenty of doubts about Floridas big men. Can Xavier Nixon recover from an offseason during which he lost and then regained 55 pounds? Is Dan Wenger truly safe after suffering two concussions at Notre Dame? Are the other starters (who hold a combined eight starts) ready? Floridas season hinges on these questions. Tom: Right now, the hype with that front seven is just that hype. None of those highly touted players Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd or Dominique Easley have shown us anything to prove Floridas pass rush will be vastly improved from last season. Until they do, the pressure remains on that group of defensive backs because, after all, they are the last line of defense for the Gators, well, defense. Thats a lot to ask of a (very) start two freshmen and two sophomores. Oh, and one of those sophomores, by all accounts, has been the leader of the defense as a whole. Im talking about Matt Elam, by the way. You know, the guy Easley referred to as the best out there. If hes really the leader everyone says he has become over the last year, that means not only the secondarys success is on his shoulders, but the entire defense depends on Elam and that group. Tyler: Nah. Offensive line is more important. And thats that. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org and Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org.
