On Oct. 25, National Basketball Association star Shaquille ONeal will be speaking at the Stephen C. OConnell Center. The Accent Speakers Bureau is paying ONeal $70,000 for his appearance. The event is open to students and the public, according to Corey Portnoy, chairman of Accent. Admission is free and deserved basis. During the show, students will be able to ask questions of ONeal, who started in the NBA in 1992 and retired last June. Hes a sports icon, Portnoy said. In the past, Accent has brought speakers ranging from comedians Demetri Martin and Andy Samberg to former U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Jazmine Armstrong, a sociology junior, is looking forward to hearing the 7-foot-1-inchtall basketball players perspective on education. Advertising senior Jordan Crandall, an avid sports fan, said he would be interested in hearing what ONeal has to say. I think hes a pretty funny guy, Crandall said. It would be cool to stand next to him to see how I stacked up. Accent to bring Shaquille ONeal to speak Oct. 25 AMANDA COHEN Alligator Contributing Writer UF dropped in two categories in the annual U.S. News and World Report Rankings. The report, which was released Tuesday No. 58 in the Best National Universities category and two spots to No. 19 in the Best Public Universities category. Rankings are calculated using a variety of statistics including academic reputation, high school counselor reputation, graduation rate, alumni funding. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the universitys drop in the national and public university categories had to do with change in UFs academic reputation. Academic reputation is calculated based on the opinions of other university presidents, Orlando said. Its a very subjective thing. In the category of public universities, academic reputation counts 15 percent. One category in which UF improved was Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs. In that category, UFs College of Engineering moved from No. 32 to No. 27, according to UF spokesman Steve Orlando. That ties the college with other universities such as Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania and University of Southern California, Orlando said. Robert Morse, director of data research for U.S. News and World Report, said the report Compared to other collegiate rankings, Morse said, U.S. News ranks more schools and thus takes more student data into consideration. Harvard University and Princeton University tied for No. 1 in the national rankings, while University of California, Berkeley was UF fell to 58th in ranking of national universitiesSTATE Alligator Contributing Writer North Florida has been swallowed by smoke from all sides.

CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterThe Student Senate voted Tuesday to give Student Government Productions $90,000 from Student Government reserve funds. The money will be added to the existing SGP budget. Of the additional funding, $71,000 will go to Gator Growl, $15,000 will go the Florida Invitational Step Show and $4,000 will go to Soulfest. Treasurer T.J. Villamil said the reserve fund totals about $3.5 million. Reserve funds come from the activity and service fee paid by UF students. Minority Leader Gillian Leytham said if Gator Growl needs more money, it should raise ticket prices. Students not going to Gator Growl should not have to pay for Gator Growl, she said. Student tickets for Gator Growl cost $15. Gator Growl, which will be held at tracts about 15,000 students, Villamil said. Leytham said giving money to Gator Student Body at the most. Villamil said the extra funding will help bring pizzazz back to Growl and help Soulfest and FISS with funding issues. Villamil also pointed out that bringing dium costs about $300,000. He said there had been talk of raising ticket prices. Gator Growl producer Aaron Heger said Gator Growl staff decided to bring a music act back to the pep rally after a 1,500-student survey indicated that 90 percent of students wanted a music act. There was no music act in 2010, which Heger said was partly a result of expenses. He said bringing O.A.R., the band at Gator Growl in 2009, cost almost as much as all of the 2010 comedians combined. bers didnt realize how much a music act would cost, but they had already started looking into hiring big-name bands when they realized the expense. Thats when SGP stepped in and offered to sponsor the band to help with costs and advertise SGP to the Student Body, Heger said. Gator Growl staff announced in late July that the Goo Goo Dolls would perform at the pep rally. After that, Villamil was able to discuss the funding with the other executhe proposal to the Budget and Appropriations Committee and then present it to the Senate Tuesday night. Without funding from SG and SGP, Heger said, ticket prices likely would have increased. 4, ALLIGATOR Erik Knudsen / AlligatorStudent Body Treasurer T.J. Villamil proposed to give SGP $90,000 out of SG reserve funds. The proposal also gives money to Gator Growl, Soulfest and the Florida Invitational Step Show.STUDENT GOVERNMENTSenate gives SGP, Gator Growl $161,000 THE TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN USED AT UF FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterMarielle Pellegrino has two minutes to cor rectly answer the question displayed on the screen in her physics class. As the time runs out, she sees students clicking in their responses. Finally, she clicks in her response as well and waits. Pellegrino, an aerospace engineering sophomore, got the right answer along with 95 percent of the class. Pellegrino is just one student who uses the Classroom Response System, more commonly known as clickers. Although UF doesnt track the number of clickers in classrooms, the equipment has been at the university for about 10 years, according to Mark McCallister, the associate director at Clickers are most prevalent in lecture classes, and they allow faculty to interact in a way that would otherwise be impossible in a large lecture, McCallister said. For example, faculty can take attendance and conduct quizzes with the equipment. If teachers choose to use clickers, they can decide which model to require students to buy, McCallister said. Geography sophomore Vance Harris said like that he had to purchase the equipment himself. During the past two years, Harris said, he had to buy three different clicker models for three different UF classes. I feel buying extra equipment is tedious, rience, but it is ridiculous to pay for three different models. Clickers at the UF Bookstore range from $30 to $50. Despite the prevalence of clickers on campus, some critics say the equipment makes it easier for students to cheat. For example, students can click in multiple-choice answers for friends who are absent from class. But McCallister said UFs regular cheating policy also applies for the Classroom Response System. At UF, students who are caught cheating are lister said. Since starting the semester, economics freshman Danielle Cooke said she hasnt witnessed cheating in her calculus class, which uses clickers. The TA did warn us about cheating at the beginning of the semester, Cooke said. I have a feeling it will happen at least once or twice during the semester. Harris took human sexuality and calculus last spring. He noticed people cheating on attendance and quizzes in both classes. In human sexuality some people were caught cheating, Harris said, so they made announcements that TAs were walking around to prevent it. However, students are allowed to discuss the questions with other students, at least in Pellegrinos class. classmates, Pellegrino said. The idea is more that you understand it.Clicker system gains popularity among teachers MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterA multimillion-dollar project to imeasier, but routine maintenance problems The $18-million project, which began at the end of 2007 and is now about 75 percent complete, led to the inclusion of chua County, said Matt Weisman, Intelligent Transportation Systems operations of Gainesville.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorTax code can be simplified differentlyMondays columnist, Travis Hornsby, was completely correct about the necessity of a simple tax code. However, the reason we have a complex tax code is not because of some random or complex force but because it lacks a trait it should absolutely possess anonymity. Our tax code is so complicated because of lobbying. The tax rate isnt the same for everyone, so people (corporations and interest groups) pay to get their own exceptions to reduce their tax burden. sumption-based tax with an annual allowance payment. Sound complicated? It really isnt. If the tax code suggested by the aforementioned Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman would give a collegeeducated American 10 minutes, an explanation would take less than 10 seconds. Under this consumption-based tax plan, you (as an American citizen) receive a check every year for a given amount. If you wanted to keep the same number of Americans cur rently paying taxes, that would be approximately $8,000, to offset the taxes paid on basic expenses. Whether youre completely impoverished or a billionaire, the allowance payment is the same. Then, every time you make a purchase you pay a rate (ideally around 17 percent) as a federal sales tax. Thats it. No corporate tax, no IRS, no payroll tax, no write-offs, just 17 cents on a dollar, point of sale. No merchant is going to break the law to save General Electric 17 percent on a purchase. Lobbying for special tax treatment is completely ineffective in an anonymous tax system. Combined with ending all corporate Companies would come (back) to the U.S. just for the simplicity of the tax process, and the economic growth resulting would be staggering. prove when Americans could spend the 6.1 billion hours we spend per year doing taxes (not to mention the hours worrying about them) doing something productive. As for accountants? Theres a lot more money to be made working for a smart, capable and analytically talented individual on improving a business than doing taxes for one. Ian Mitchell UF student This month, Palestinians will take the unprecedented step of applying for full-state membership to the United Nations. Currently, they hold non-state observer status. While this upends the peace process, this course of action ward achieving a lasting peace. Israelis argue that instead of promoting peace, this weakens it. Rather than negotiations resuming after the U.N. accepts Palestine as a state, negotiations, they say, would stall, and tensions will rise between Israel and Palestine. Israelis argue that this amounts to a unilateral declaration, and Palestinians ought to simply negotiate. Frankly, the idea that taking an application for member ship in the U.N. as unilateral is laughable. One doesnt see a much more multilateral organization than the U.N., which contains every country on the planet in some fashion. And Palestinians know the U.N. recognizing them as a state on the borders set out in U.N. Resolution 194 (the West Bank and Gaza Strip) does not mean they will instantly have a state or that Israel will withdraw from the occupation. Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president, said he would happily resume negotiations with Israel after returning from New York City. But this seems to be the only way to really push the reset Palestinians argue, rather convincingly, that instead of destroying the two-state solution, they are preserving it. In 1967, Israel annexed East Jerusalem, denying citizenship to its residents, leaving them without passport or nationality. This expansion of settlements means the future Palestinian state is quickly shrinking. Israel will insist on keeping the largest of its settlement blocs in the West Bank, while dismantling smaller ones. ton, D.C., this summer, Shaul Arieli, former head of the Interim Peace Agreement Administration, noted that 75 to 85 percent of settlers could stay in Israeli territory by swapping only three to four percent of the land. At this same panel, Alon Pinkas, former Israeli consul general in New York, explained the curious behavior of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. In late July, Netanyahu asked his national security adviser for a way to nullify the Oslo Accords. Its strange that the Israeli responsible for peace is searching for a way to dismantle it. Pinkas envisions a possible future where Israel must make a terrible choice. Choice one: Give the Palestinians full and equal rights as Israeli citizens and lose the Jewish nature of Israel. Choice two: Institute apartheid and give up democracy. Fortunately, it hasnt come to that yet. This is why the Palestinian initiative at the United Nations is so important. Instead of vetoing the application, the United States should support it or at least support the non-member observer state status which the U.N. General Assembly will grant.

MINA RADMANAlligator WriterUF Hillel has seen an increase in demand for Taglit-Birthright Israel trips. Birthright is a 10-day trip that allows people of Jewish heritage to connect with their roots by visiting the country. It is not intended to make students religious but to understand that they are part of a bigger Jewish population, said Joshua Kahn, the Jewish agency program director at Hillel. To attend the trip, students can register through Hillel or other organizations. Hillel takes students on the trip twice a year, during the summer and winter. UF Hillel offers Birthright for UF students through a tour operator, IsraelExperts, according to Kahn. Israel funds 15 percent of the costs for the Birthright program. Various organizations and private donors fund the rest. It costs about $3,000 to send each person to Israel. The program is free except for a $250 security deposit that is returned at the end of the trip. Each student receives a round-trip ticket, two meals a day and a bus seat to travel in Israel. Hillel sent three full buses of UF students on Birthright in May, about 120 students total. Hillel hasnt sent such a large group of students since before the wave of terrorism in Israel in the early 2000s, Kahn said. Kahn said more students want to attend Birthright because they have heard positive things from students who went in the past. Because of word-of-mouth, people realize that it really is no strings attached and a trip of a lifetime, Kahn said. The turbulent political climate in the Middle East may be another reason students are choosing to register for Birthright now, Kahn said. With turbulent neighbors, Israel is a stable island in a sea of chaos, Kahn said. The winter trip is typically less popular with students, Kahn said, but he still expects to send at least two full buses in December and four buses next summer. raeli soldiers, two American staff members, a tour guide, a medic and an armed guard. Registration for the winter trip, which is trip.com. Registration will be open for about four days. After registration, students will have short interview sessions to determine eligibility. To be eligible, students must have at least one Jewish parent or identify themselves as Jewish, Kahn said. Ashley Meral, an accounting junior, went on Birthright in May. If you could go on the trip more than once, I would go every single time, Meral said. Briana Rittersporn, a sophomore telecommunications major, chose to go through Hillel for her Birthright trip because she wants a chance to see what she learned about in Hebrew school. The program will give me a chance to see Israel, especially since my parents wont pay for it, Rittersporn said. But not all students are choosing to go on Birthright through Hillel. Michelle Amit, a microbiology junior, plans to use a national company when she registers for Birthright this winter. I want to meet Jewish people from all over and travel to some amazing places together, Amit said. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011Photo courtesy to the AlligatorThis photo shows one of three bus loads of students Hillel sent to Israel over summer.

From learning the basics of a fully functional Flash website, users of lynda.com can gain access to more than one thousand online video tutoriAnd now, so can anyone with a GatorLink account. UF Information Technology has partnered with lynda. com, also known as the Online Training Library, for the 2011-12 academic school year. UF students, faculty and staff will be able to gain full access to the site by logging in with their GatorLink username and password. Lynda.com currently has 1,124 courses with titles ranging from Microsoft Excel to Adobe InDesign. Through UFs one-year pilot program, GatorLink account holders can gain unlimited access to lynda. com and view any of their tutorials for free. The lynda.com project was proposed last year by Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist. Its one of six projects funded by UFs Student Technology Fee, which was implemented by the Florida Legislature in 2009 to enhance instructional technology resources. Aside from the computerbased stuff, lynda.com can teach you how to update your resume and make an effective PowerPoint, Floyd said. UF is not the only institution to introduce the online library. Other schools, such as Yale University, and companies like Google and Amazon also use the site. Its a quick way to get started using complex pieces of software, said David Carlson, a professor of new media journalism and the executive director for the Center for Media Innovation and Research. I think it provides a lot of opportunities to learn skills you may not already have or to further develop ones you do have. Lynda.com can be used anywhere that has Internet access, but GatorLink account holders must access the site through performance, lynda.com may be available in upcoming school years.

success because of his experience in the offense. Wenger played under Weis and offensive line coach Frank Verducci at Notre Dame before coming to Florida. If he couldnt play a down, he still would have helped us tremendously, Weis said. Even if he couldnt physically hold up, his intangibles are through the roof. Red zone errors: Weis said the offenses struggles in the red zone against UAB had more to do with miscommunication than mental errors, which leads Weis to believe The things that happened in the red zone were very correctable issues, Weis said. Itd be one if you just got whooped or something like that, but they were just things that if we did better it would have been all touchdowns. UAB, and twice the offenses promising yard line. Instead of the up-tempo pace of the down and pound the ball in the run game. In the second half, Florida scored two touchdowns on both its possessions inContact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator. org. The unit has anchored a rushing attack averaging 248.5 yards per game, second best in the SEC behind Mississippi State. Throughout the preseason, linemen talked about the groups chemistry, about how they were a closer unit than the one that preceded them. Last year, the offensive line was a hodgepodge of seniors who were experts in Urban Meyers spread and underclassmen still feeling things out. This year, almost everyone learned offensive coordinator Charlie Weis system together. The only potential hiccup came with the arrival of Dan Wenger, a sixth-year senior who transferred during the summer. Wenger admitted Tuesday that he was younger teammates. Those concerns were erased when he presented an idea to the group: WWE Midnight Weightlifting. The linemen gathered at the weight room dressed as professional wrestlers. Ian Silberman was The Rock. Matt Patchan was The Undertaker. Someone else was Sting face paint, black bat and all. Wenger, who appeared to dress as Mick Foley, based on a photo uploaded on Twitter, said the event endeared him to the rest of the group, a group he said is as talented as any he has been a part of. The athletes that our line has, its just unbelievable, Wenger said. When I came thought in my mind was, These guys are freaks but, in a good way. Now, if only their quarterback would show them more love, or more food, not that they care. O-line is one of those positions, center Jonotthan Harrison said. All work, no credit. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. I dont like to treat any game different from one another, Muschamp said Monday. Its the next one and therefore its the most important. Its a great rivalry. Its in the SEC East, and its a game we need to play well in, and win. Its a very important game; we dont need to tell our players that. They come to play at a place like Florida to play in a game like this. When asked about Tennessee, Floridas players toted the same lines, for the most part. Linebacker Lerentee McCray said its just like another game, adding that, theyre the orangeand-white team, I just need to go out there and play them. We treat every game the same, defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. Its nameless, faceless opponents and we treat every game the same. Every week: nameless, faceless opponents, offensive lineman Jon Halapio said. Were just going to prepare every week the same. Whoever we face, its the same. But Tennessee isnt the same Not the same as FAU or UAB, and certainly not the same whipping boy Florida has worked over the last six years. The Vols have faces. They have names; names that should worry Muschamp and his boys. Names like Tyler Bray, Tauren Poole, DaRick Rogers and Justin Hunter just to name a few. If Florida prepares for Tennessee like just another team, Muschamp runs the risk of doing something Meyer never did at Florida: lose to Tennessee, and do it at home. And thats not the kind of impression Coach Boom wants to year. If that happens, he and his team will remember Tennessees faces for years to come.

So the 6-foot-5, 255-pound powerhouse tight end sat down with his parents and Then, on May 5, came the decision.

Thompson has been told he will be used in some two tight end sets in addition to other options suitable for option, blocking prowess and ability to catch in I want to try to go to in, he said. Obviously with Charlie Weis going in there, I have a great chance to be successful. Between two busy game weekends for Archbishop Wood High one of which was broadcast on ESPN2 Thompson hasnt had much time to watch the Gators; however, he said what he has seen in highlights and heard from other sources has been impressive. Their offense is doing a great job, he Wow, thats going to be me next year, or I hope thats going to be me next year. Its a little nerve-wracking, but Im up for the opportunity.

JOE MORGANAlligator WriterSomething was missing for UF volleyball coach Mary Wise at the end of last weekends Nike Big Four Classic in Palo Alto, Calif. She was not left wanting for experiwith No. 8 Texas and No. 2 Stanford. Instead, she took issue with the events all-tournament team, which featured setter Kelly Murphy and outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel, both of whom are seniors. Look at the play of (right-side hitter) Tangerine Wiggs; she has just taken off, Wise said. I was disappointed she wasnt named to the all-tournament team because her numbers this past weekend against both Texas and Stanford were ridiculous. Seeking recognition for an individual player this early in the season may seem out of place, but Wiggs recent perfor mance demands attention. The junior was an offensive force on the West Coast, posting 31 total kills a career-high 18 coming against Stanford and a team-leading .456 hitting per centage at the event. She also stepped up defensively, doubling her season dig total from eight to 16 against the Longhorns and the Car dinal. [Murphy and Jaeckel] deserve to be on the all-tournament team, but we just wish there were more spots because I felt like [Wiggs] got a little bit slighted there, Wise said. While she was unable to crack the alltournament team, Wiggs has been a key cog in the Gators rotation, playing in each of the squads 33 sets this season. Her constant presence in the lineup has yielded stellar numbers like 77 kills (just one fewer than the All-American Murphy) and a .378 hitting percentage, the second-best mark on the team. Although Wiggs is enjoying success now, it did not always come so easy for the Seattle native. Tange used to be a hitter who had a very small hitting window the ball had to be set just so for her to be successful, Wise said. Her window has expanded and now she has the ability to get kills off of different tempos and different spots on the court. Wiggs success can be attributed to working with assistant coach Dave Boos on her footwork to the ball, Wise said. Additionally, Wiggs increased her a staggering mark of 10 feet, 6.5 inches since arriving in Gainesville, which has helped her at the net. If her early efforts are any indication of how Wiggs will perform once Southeastern Conference play begins against Mississippi State on Friday, Florida should like its chances of winning a second consecutive league title. She is playing at such a high level with her contact point above the net, Wise said. She hits some shots that just cant be defended by anybody.

Accent to bring Shaquille ONeal to speak Oct. 25 AMANDA COHEN Alligator Contributing Writer UF dropped in two categories in the annual U.S. News and World Report Rankings. The report, which was released Tuesday No. 58 in the Best National Universities category and two spots to No. 19 in the Best Public Universities category. Rankings are calculated using a variety of statistics including academic reputation, high school counselor reputation, graduation rate, alumni funding. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the universitys drop in the national and public university categories had to do with change in UFs academic reputation. Academic reputation is calculated based on the opinions of other university presidents, Orlando said. Its a very subjective thing. In the category of public universities, academic reputation counts 15 percent. One category in which UF improved was Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs. In that category, UFs College of Engineering moved from No. 32 to No. 27, according to UF spokesman Steve Orlando. That ties the college with other universities such as Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania and University of Southern California, Orlando said. Robert Morse, director of data research for U.S. News and World Report, said the report Compared to other collegiate rankings, Morse said, U.S. News ranks more schools and thus takes more student data into consideration. Harvard University and Princeton University tied for No. 1 in the national rankings, while University of California, Berkeley was UF fell to 58th in ranking of national universitiesSTATE Alligator Contributing Writer North Florida has been swallowed by smoke from all sides.

CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterThe Student Senate voted Tuesday to give Student Government Productions $90,000 from Student Government reserve funds. The money will be added to the existing SGP budget. Of the additional funding, $71,000 will go to Gator Growl, $15,000 will go the Florida Invitational Step Show and $4,000 will go to Soulfest. Treasurer T.J. Villamil said the reserve fund totals about $3.5 million. Reserve funds come from the activity and service fee paid by UF students. Minority Leader Gillian Leytham said if Gator Growl needs more money, it should raise ticket prices. Students not going to Gator Growl should not have to pay for Gator Growl, she said. Student tickets for Gator Growl cost $15. Gator Growl, which will be held at tracts about 15,000 students, Villamil said. Leytham said giving money to Gator Student Body at the most. Villamil said the extra funding will help bring pizzazz back to Growl and help Soulfest and FISS with funding issues. Villamil also pointed out that bringing dium costs about $300,000. He said there had been talk of raising ticket prices. Gator Growl producer Aaron Heger said Gator Growl staff decided to bring a music act back to the pep rally after a 1,500-student survey indicated that 90 percent of students wanted a music act. There was no music act in 2010, which Heger said was partly a result of expenses. He said bringing O.A.R., the band at Gator Growl in 2009, cost almost as much as all of the 2010 comedians combined. bers didnt realize how much a music act would cost, but they had already started looking into hiring big-name bands when they realized the expense. Thats when SGP stepped in and offered to sponsor the band to help with costs and advertise SGP to the Student Body, Heger said. Gator Growl staff announced in late July that the Goo Goo Dolls would per form at the pep rally. After that, Villamil was able to discuss the funding with the other executhe proposal to the Budget and Appropriations Committee and then present it to the Senate Tuesday night. Without funding from SG and SGP, Heger said, ticket prices likely would have increased. 4, ALLIGATOR Erik Knudsen / AlligatorStudent Body Treasurer T.J. Villamil proposed to give SGP $90,000 out of SG reserve funds. The proposal also gives money to Gator Growl, Soulfest and the Florida Invitational Step Show.STUDENT GOVERNMENTSenate gives SGP, Gator Growl $161,000 THE TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN USED AT UF FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterMarielle Pellegrino has two minutes to cor rectly answer the question displayed on the screen in her physics class. As the time runs out, she sees students clicking in their responses. Finally, she clicks in her response as well and waits. Pellegrino, an aerospace engineering sophomore, got the right answer along with 95 percent of the class. Pellegrino is just one student who uses the Classroom Response System, more commonly known as clickers. Although UF doesnt track the number of clickers in classrooms, the equipment has been at the university for about 10 years, according to Mark McCallister, the associate director at Clickers are most prevalent in lecture classes, and they allow faculty to interact in a way that would otherwise be impossible in a large lecture, McCallister said. For example, faculty can take attendance and conduct quizzes with the equipment. If teachers choose to use clickers, they can decide which model to require students to buy, McCallister said. Geography sophomore Vance Harris said like that he had to purchase the equipment himself. During the past two years, Harris said, he had to buy three different clicker models for three different UF classes. I feel buying extra equipment is tedious, rience, but it is ridiculous to pay for three different models. Clickers at the UF Bookstore range from $30 to $50. Despite the prevalence of clickers on campus, some critics say the equipment makes it easier for students to cheat. For example, students can click in multiple-choice answers for friends who are absent from class. But McCallister said UFs regular cheating policy also applies for the Classroom Response System. At UF, students who are caught cheating are lister said. Since starting the semester, economics freshman Danielle Cooke said she hasnt witnessed cheating in her calculus class, which uses clickers. The TA did warn us about cheating at the beginning of the semester, Cooke said. I have a feeling it will happen at least once or twice during the semester. Harris took human sexuality and calculus last spring. He noticed people cheating on attendance and quizzes in both classes. In human sexuality some people were caught cheating, Harris said, so they made announcements that TAs were walking around to prevent it. However, students are allowed to discuss the questions with other students, at least in Pellegrinos class. classmates, Pellegrino said. The idea is more that you understand it.Clicker system gains popularity among teachers MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterA multimillion-dollar project to imeasier, but routine maintenance problems The $18-million project, which began at the end of 2007 and is now about 75 percent complete, led to the inclusion of chua County, said Matt Weisman, Intelligent Transportation Systems operations of Gainesville.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorTax code can be simplified differentlyMondays columnist, Travis Hornsby, was completely correct about the necessity of a simple tax code. However, the reason we have a complex tax code is not because of some random or complex force but because it lacks a trait it should absolutely possess anonymity. Our tax code is so complicated because of lobbying. The tax rate isnt the same for everyone, so people (corporations and interest groups) pay to get their own exceptions to reduce their tax burden. sumption-based tax with an annual allowance payment. Sound complicated? It really isnt. If the tax code suggested by the aforementioned Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman would give a collegeeducated American 10 minutes, an explanation would take less than 10 seconds. Under this consumption-based tax plan, you (as an American citizen) receive a check every year for a given amount. If you wanted to keep the same number of Americans cur rently paying taxes, that would be approximately $8,000, to offset the taxes paid on basic expenses. Whether youre completely impoverished or a billionaire, the allowance payment is the same. Then, every time you make a purchase you pay a rate (ideally around 17 percent) as a federal sales tax. Thats it. No corporate tax, no IRS, no payroll tax, no write-offs, just 17 cents on a dollar, point of sale. No merchant is going to break the law to save General Electric 17 percent on a purchase. Lobbying for special tax treatment is completely ineffective in an anonymous tax system. Combined with ending all corporate Companies would come (back) to the U.S. just for the simplicity of the tax process, and the economic growth resulting would be staggering. prove when Americans could spend the 6.1 billion hours we spend per year doing taxes (not to mention the hours worrying about them) doing something productive. As for accountants? Theres a lot more money to be made working for a smart, capable and analytically talented individual on improving a business than doing taxes for one. Ian Mitchell UF student This month, Palestinians will take the unprecedented step of applying for full-state membership to the United Nations. Currently, they hold non-state observer status. While this upends the peace process, this course of action ward achieving a lasting peace. Israelis argue that instead of promoting peace, this weakens it. Rather than negotiations resuming after the U.N. accepts Palestine as a state, negotiations, they say, would stall, and tensions will rise between Israel and Palestine. Israelis argue that this amounts to a unilateral declaration, and Palestinians ought to simply negotiate. Frankly, the idea that taking an application for member ship in the U.N. as unilateral is laughable. One doesnt see a much more multilateral organization than the U.N., which contains every country on the planet in some fashion. And Palestinians know the U.N. recognizing them as a state on the borders set out in U.N. Resolution 194 (the West Bank and Gaza Strip) does not mean they will instantly have a state or that Israel will withdraw from the occupation. Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president, said he would happily resume negotiations with Israel after returning from New York City. But this seems to be the only way to really push the reset Palestinians argue, rather convincingly, that instead of destroying the two-state solution, they are preserving it. In 1967, Israel annexed East Jerusalem, denying citizenship to its residents, leaving them without passport or nationality. This expansion of settlements means the future Palestinian state is quickly shrinking. Israel will insist on keeping the largest of its settlement blocs in the West Bank, while dismantling smaller ones. ton, D.C., this summer, Shaul Arieli, former head of the Interim Peace Agreement Administration, noted that 75 to 85 percent of settlers could stay in Israeli territory by swapping only three to four percent of the land. At this same panel, Alon Pinkas, former Israeli consul general in New York, explained the curious behavior of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. In late July, Netanyahu asked his national security adviser for a way to nullify the Oslo Accords. Its strange that the Israeli responsible for peace is searching for a way to dismantle it. Pinkas envisions a possible future where Israel must make a terrible choice. Choice one: Give the Palestinians full and equal rights as Israeli citizens and lose the Jewish nature of Israel. Choice two: Institute apartheid and give up democracy. Fortunately, it hasnt come to that yet. This is why the Palestinian initiative at the United Nations is so important. Instead of vetoing the application, the United States should support it or at least support the non-member observer state status which the U.N. General Assembly will grant.

MINA RADMANAlligator WriterUF Hillel has seen an increase in demand for Taglit-Birthright Israel trips. Birthright is a 10-day trip that allows people of Jewish heritage to connect with their roots by visiting the country. It is not intended to make students religious but to understand that they are part of a bigger Jewish population, said Joshua Kahn, the Jewish agency program director at Hillel. To attend the trip, students can register through Hillel or other organizations. Hillel takes students on the trip twice a year, during the summer and winter. UF Hillel offers Birthright for UF students through a tour operator, IsraelExperts, according to Kahn. Israel funds 15 percent of the costs for the Birthright program. Various organizations and private donors fund the rest. It costs about $3,000 to send each person to Israel. The program is free except for a $250 security deposit that is returned at the end of the trip. Each student receives a round-trip ticket, two meals a day and a bus seat to travel in Israel. Hillel sent three full buses of UF students on Birthright in May, about 120 students total. Hillel hasnt sent such a large group of students since before the wave of terrorism in Israel in the early 2000s, Kahn said. Kahn said more students want to attend Birthright because they have heard positive things from students who went in the past. Because of word-of-mouth, people realize that it really is no strings attached and a trip of a lifetime, Kahn said. The turbulent political climate in the Middle East may be another reason students are choosing to register for Birthright now, Kahn said. With turbulent neighbors, Israel is a stable island in a sea of chaos, Kahn said. The winter trip is typically less popular with students, Kahn said, but he still expects to send at least two full buses in December and four buses next summer. raeli soldiers, two American staff members, a tour guide, a medic and an armed guard. Registration for the winter trip, which is trip.com. Registration will be open for about four days. After registration, students will have short interview sessions to determine eligibility. To be eligible, students must have at least one Jewish parent or identify themselves as Jewish, Kahn said. Ashley Meral, an accounting junior, went on Birthright in May. If you could go on the trip more than once, I would go every single time, Meral said. Briana Rittersporn, a sophomore telecommunications major, chose to go through Hillel for her Birthright trip because she wants a chance to see what she learned about in Hebrew school. The program will give me a chance to see Israel, especially since my parents wont pay for it, Rittersporn said. But not all students are choosing to go on Birthright through Hillel. Michelle Amit, a microbiology junior, plans to use a national company when she registers for Birthright this winter. I want to meet Jewish people from all over and travel to some amazing places together, Amit said. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011Photo courtesy to the AlligatorThis photo shows one of three bus loads of students Hillel sent to Israel over summer.

SIJUN LIAlligator Contributing WriterDont know how to use Photoshop? Theres a video for that. From learning the basics of a fully functional Flash website, users of lynda.com can gain access to more than one thousand online video tutoriAnd now, so can anyone with a GatorLink account. UF Information Technology has partnered with lynda. com, also known as the Online Training Library, for the 2011-12 academic school year. UF students, faculty and staff will be able to gain full access to the site by logging in with their GatorLink username and password. Lynda.com currently has 1,124 courses with titles ranging from Microsoft Excel to Adobe InDesign. Through UFs one-year pilot program, GatorLink account holders can gain unlimited access to lynda. com and view any of their tutorials for free. The lynda.com project was proposed last year by Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist. Its one of six projects funded by UFs Student Technology Fee, which was implemented by the Florida Legislature in 2009 to enhance instructional technology resources. Aside from the computerbased stuff, lynda.com can teach you how to update your resume and make an effective PowerPoint, Floyd said. UF is not the only institution to introduce the online library. Other schools, such as Yale University, and companies like Google and Amazon also use the site. Its a quick way to get started using complex pieces of software, said David Carlson, a professor of new media journalism and the executive director for the Center for Media Innovation and Research. I think it provides a lot of opportunities to learn skills you may not already have or to further develop ones you do have. Lynda.com can be used anywhere that has Internet access, but GatorLink account holders must access the site through performance, lynda.com may be available in upcoming school years. Im really thrilled that the university has provided this tool for us, Carlson said.

Body vice president in Florida, said he wanted to help member of the Asian American Students Union. This was a very personal project for me, he said. Although he is not sure exactly how long it has taken to hire a director, Reynolds said he knows the move has been in progress for at least eight years. As director, Leah Villanueva said she will bring an ability to relate to APIA undergraduates. Villanueva graduated from UF in 2006 and was involved in APIA as a student. She started the job at the beginning of the Fall semester. She said she wants to work on developing leadership opportunities, educational programming, advocating for Asian-American studies and organizing an alumni-student mentoring network.

success because of his experience in the offense. Wenger played under Weis and offensive line coach Frank Verducci at Notre Dame before coming to Florida. If he couldnt play a down, he still would have helped us tremendously, Weis said. Even if he couldnt physically hold up, his intangibles are through the roof. Red zone errors: Weis said the offenses struggles in the red zone against UAB had more to do with miscommunication than mental errors, which leads Weis to believe The things that happened in the red zone were very correctable issues, Weis said. Itd be one if you just got whooped or something like that, but they were just things that if we did better it would have been all touchdowns. UAB, and twice the offenses promising yard line. Instead of the up-tempo pace of the down and pound the ball in the run game. In the second half, Florida scored two touchdowns on both its possessions inContact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator. org. The unit has anchored a rushing attack averaging 248.5 yards per game, second best in the SEC behind Mississippi State. Throughout the preseason, linemen talked about the groups chemistry, about how they were a closer unit than the one that preceded them. Last year, the offensive line was a hodgepodge of seniors who were experts in Urban Meyers spread and underclassmen still feeling things out. This year, almost everyone learned offensive coordinator Charlie Weis system together. The only potential hiccup came with the arrival of Dan Wenger, a sixth-year senior who transferred during the summer. Wenger admitted Tuesday that he was younger teammates. Those concerns were erased when he presented an idea to the group: WWE Midnight Weightlifting. The linemen gathered at the weight room dressed as professional wrestlers. Ian Silberman was The Rock. Matt Patchan was The Undertaker. Someone else was Sting face paint, black bat and all. Wenger, who appeared to dress as Mick Foley, based on a photo uploaded on Twitter, said the event endeared him to the rest of the group, a group he said is as talented as any he has been a part of. The athletes that our line has, its just unbelievable, Wenger said. When I came thought in my mind was, These guys are freaks but, in a good way. Now, if only their quarterback would show them more love, or more food, not that they care. O-line is one of those positions, center Jonotthan Harrison said. All work, no credit. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. I dont like to treat any game different from one another, Muschamp said Monday. Its the next one and therefore its the most important. Its a great rivalry. Its in the SEC East, and its a game we need to play well in, and win. Its a very important game; we dont need to tell our players that. They come to play at a place like Florida to play in a game like this. When asked about Tennessee, Floridas players toted the same lines, for the most part. Linebacker Lerentee McCray said its just like another game, adding that, theyre the orangeand-white team, I just need to go out there and play them. We treat every game the same, defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. Its nameless, faceless opponents and we treat every game the same. Every week: nameless, faceless opponents, offensive lineman Jon Halapio said. Were just going to prepare every week the same. Whoever we face, its the same. But Tennessee isnt the same Not the same as FAU or UAB, and certainly not the same whipping boy Florida has worked over the last six years. The Vols have faces. They have names; names that should worry Muschamp and his boys. Names like Tyler Bray, Tauren Poole, DaRick Rogers and Justin Hunter just to name a few. If Florida prepares for Tennessee like just another team, Muschamp runs the risk of doing something Meyer never did at Florida: lose to Tennessee, and do it at home. And thats not the kind of impression Coach Boom wants to year. If that happens, he and his team will remember Tennessees faces for years to come.

JOE MORGANAlligator WriterSomething was missing for UF volleyball coach Mary Wise at the end of last weekends Nike Big Four Classic in Palo Alto, Calif. She was not left wanting for experiwith No. 8 Texas and No. 2 Stanford. Instead, she took issue with the events all-tournament team, which featured setter Kelly Murphy and outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel, both of whom are seniors. Look at the play of (right-side hitter) Tangerine Wiggs; she has just taken off, Wise said. I was disappointed she wasnt named to the all-tournament team because her numbers this past weekend against both Texas and Stanford were ridiculous. Seeking recognition for an individual player this early in the season may seem out of place, but Wiggs recent perfor mance demands attention. The junior was an offensive force on the West Coast, posting 31 total kills a career-high 18 coming against Stanford and a team-leading .456 hitting per centage at the event. She also stepped up defensively, doubling her season dig total from eight to 16 against the Longhorns and the Car dinal. [Murphy and Jaeckel] deserve to be on the all-tournament team, but we just wish there were more spots because I felt like [Wiggs] got a little bit slighted there, Wise said. While she was unable to crack the alltournament team, Wiggs has been a key cog in the Gators rotation, playing in each of the squads 33 sets this season. Her constant presence in the lineup has yielded stellar numbers like 77 kills (just one fewer than the All-American Murphy) and a .378 hitting percentage, the second-best mark on the team. Although Wiggs is enjoying success now, it did not always come so easy for the Seattle native. Tange used to be a hitter who had a very small hitting window the ball had to be set just so for her to be successful, Wise said. Her window has expanded and now she has the ability to get kills off of different tempos and different spots on the court. Wiggs success can be attributed to working with assistant coach Dave Boos on her footwork to the ball, Wise said. Additionally, Wiggs increased her a staggering mark of 10 feet, 6.5 inches since arriving in Gainesville, which has helped her at the net. If her early efforts are any indication of how Wiggs will perform once Southeastern Conference play begins against Mississippi State on Friday, Florida should like its chances of winning a second consecutive league title. She is playing at such a high level with her contact point above the net, Wise said. She hits some shots that just cant be defended by anybody.
