JASMINE EARLSAlligator Contributing WriterThe Alachua County Commission has once again opted to postpone the decision to move county fairgrounds from its current location in east Gainesville to Newberry. After nearly a decade of stalled efforts in appropriating the fairground land by the City of Gainesville and Alachua County, the decision leaves many questions open. Plan East Gainesville, a redevelopment plan completed in 2003, makes reinvestment on the east side a priority for the city, but the city of Newberrys newest proposal calls to move the fairgrounds to the west. fairgrounds to the west would further debilitate East Gainesvilles dwindling economy. have also recognized that moving the fairgrounds neglects the original incentives in Plan East Gainesville. Newer development has generally been focused in the west, and the city is concerned that its just another piece being taken away from east Gainesville, said Deputy County Manager Rick Drummond. East Gainesville has been left out in terms of economic development, and the city wants to keep the fairgrounds there as an economic driver, Drummond said. Were still moving forward with plans for the fairgrounds, Drummond said. Just a bit slower than we expected. hand, understand that the land hasnt been adequately used, and the Newberry proposal focuses primarily on the full use of that land. Projected construction costs outlined in Plan East Gainesville are estimated over $40 million. The Commission-approved plan includes the construction of a 50,000 square foot coliseum, a 48,000 square foot exhibition hall, a 50,000 square foot equestrian and livestock arena, an events lawn and a parking area. Construction would start in April 2012. A 2-percent Tourist Development Tax would be implemented to offset costs. The Tourist Development Tax, which is funded by tourists to the area, would be added to hotel and motel bills, campsites and short-term rentals. The annual expected return of the Tour ist Development Tax would be $650,000. During a commission meeting Tuesday, county commissioners urged that moving the fairgrounds to Newberry makes more sense economically because sports tour ism facilities already exist in the area and would only further stem business for the fairgrounds. Earlier this year, plans to gauge interest for the land in the private sector were met with little enthusiasm. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011Alligator File Photo BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Contributing WriterEven in the pursuit of the best and the brightest, UF is not immune to a national dip in SAT scores among high school graduates. High school students who graduated in 2011 nationally averaged a reading score of 497, three points lower than last year and the lowest on record, according to a report by the College Board, which administers the SAT. The writing average score dropped two points to 489, and the math average score went down one point to 514. At UF last year, the SAT aver age was 1993 points, but this year it has dropped 35 points to 1958, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. trend, he said. Were not concerned about it. About 1.65 million students took the test nationally. Normally, UFs SAT scores have been increasing, but this year followed the national dip. One year doesnt make a trend, he said. Orlando said the decrease of SAT scores doesnt say anything about the students recently admitted to UF. SAT scores are only one of a lot of pieces we look at when it comes to admission, Orlando said. at the kind of course load a student handled during his or her high school years. coursework give a more accurate view of the student in comparison to SAT scores alone, Orlando said. Of the 29,000 students who applied in 2011, just 11,423 high school graduates made it through the application process. Of those, 6,400 students decided to come to UF in the fall, he said. Those other 5,023 went to other schools for their college education, including MIT, Stanford, Duke and more, Or lando said. We unfor tunately said no to a lot of outstanding students, he said. In the state of Florida, UF was the university with the third most SAT scores sent for consideration, according to a College Board report. The University of Central Florida was number one and Florida State University was number two. The SAT was taken by 114,769 students in Florida during this past year, according to the College Board report. Each one of the three SAT sections is scored from 200 to 800, with 2400 being the highest possible score a student can earn. This years combined average was 1500, which is six points less than last years, 1506. For students in Miami-Dade, the county that sends the second most students to UF with 4,132, following Broward County with 4,900, scores arent looking much better. All scores in Miami-Dade on average were lower this year, following the national blip of decreased SAT scores.The scores decreased less than the state average but more than the national standard. Of those 12,780 Miami-Dade County high school students who took the SAT this year, the average reading score was 467. Thats 20 points less than the Florida average and 30 points less than the national average, according to a memorandum from Alberto Carvalho, Miami-Dade superintendent of schools. The Miami-Dade high school students averaged a score of 466 in the math section, 23 points lower than the Florida average and 48 points below the national average, according to the memo. Writing-section scores for the Miami-Dade students this year averaged 452, which is 19 points less than the state-average and 37 points less than the nations average. The students average SAT reading scores fell six points from 2010, their math scores fell three points and their writing scores dropped HIGHER EDUC A TION ERIN DONAHUEAlligator Contributing Writer Tragedy struck earlier this month for a Santa Fe College student. While participating in a cheerleading stunt with friends, Cara Moro, 19, of Apopka, Fla., fell onto her neck and shattered vertebrae in her spine, according to coworker Kristina St. Peter. Moro worked as a hostess and a server at Gators Dockside for more than a year, St. Peter said. To help raise money for Moros hospital stay and rehabilitation, a breakfast will be held at Gators Dockside, 3842 Newberry Road, Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. The event has been named the Caring for Cara Fundraiser. Tickets for the fundraiser are $6 and can be purchased at Gators Dockside or from employees who will be selling tickets in their classes and around campus at UF as well as at Santa Fe College. The restaurants Twitter and Facebook pages are also being used to spread the word to the Gainesville community. Moro spent a week at Shands HealthCare hospital and was recently transported to Shepherd Center in Atlanta, medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury and brain injury, according to the hospitals website. Bianca Bonito, a co-worker and friend of Moros, has been in contact with her since the accident. Shes just a good person, Bonito said. Everything she says is positive. Unlike other fundraisers hosted by Gators Dockside, the Caring for Cara Fundraiser will donate 100 percent of its proceeds to Moros family in order to help pay for hospital and rehabilitation expenses, said Russ Bockemuehl, kitchen manager at Gators Dockside. A ticket will get you a drink, pancakes, eggs and bacon, according to St. Peter. This will be the biggest breakfast weve ever had, Bockemuehl said. As of last week at least 350 tickets have already been sold by the 35 servers who currently work at the restaurant. It really hits home when its someone from the Gators Dockside family, Bockemuehl said. The staff has rallied together in order to help Cara and her family. I just want everything to be taken care of, Bonito said. All of their worries should be on Cara, not on money.Drummond This will be the biggest breakfast weve ever had.

Column EditorialTHURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Elizabeth Behrman EDITOR Joey Flechas MANAGING EDITOR Justin Hayes OPINIONS EDITORTestimony TroublesEyewitness accounts may not be enough Last night, the state of Georgia killed Troy Davis. Davis was convicted in 1991 of murdering Savannah His conviction was based solely on eyewitness testimony. No physical or biological evidence tied Davis to the scene of the crime. Many believe Davis is innocent, and the doubts raised in the two decades since his conviction mean there is a possibility that Georgia put an innocent man to death. According to the Innocence Project, seven of the nine wittheir testimony. Some witnesses, including Jeffrey Sapp, said they were pressured by police to connect Davis with the shooting. Was Davis simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? Those speaking out against Troys execution have come from all sides of the aisle. According to ABC News, former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr said, even for death penalty supporters such as myself, the level of doubt inherent in this case is troubling. The fact that his conviction was based solely on eyewitness reports is also troubling given the questionable reliability of these statements. Psychologist Elizabeth Loftus conducted an experiment in which participants were shown a slide show of a car accident. One group of participants was asked how fast the cars were traveling when they hit each other and another group was asked how fast they were going when they smashed into each other. Members of the second group were more likely to report seeing broken glass in the slide show, even though the slide showed no broken glass. events like a shooting? Surely people would be able to remember those better. In another study, 54 students from Duke University answered questions about their memory of 9/11 the day after it happened. When the same group of students were asked the same questions years later, most of their stories had completely changed in terms of their surroundings and how they found out about the attacks. Although the argument still rages on in the psychological community about the ability of people to remember past events, validity of eyewitness testimony especially when the life of a human being hangs in the balance. We can certainly debate whether or not a convicted murderer deserves to be executed. However, when doubt exists about a persons level of guilt, those who support and oppose the death penalty should each give serious consideration to the possible negative consequences of our justice system.34 TOTAL VOTES62% YES 38% NOWednesdays question: Are you looking forward to using electronic voting for the upcoming SG election? Todays question: your tuition fees? On Monday morning, I received an email from NetInc.s CEO, Reed Hastings. In it, he politely informed me that he was apologizing for the way his company had mishandled its last service change. breaking up into two separate companies and two separate services. the DVD-by-mail service would break off into another company called Qwikster. It would have its own website, its own payment system and its own ratings information. Its easy to see what inconveniences will arise for customers who have previously enjoyed access to both ser vices. We will now have to visit two separate websites to DVD becomes available for instant streaming, we wont If wed like recommendations for movies we may enjoy, well have to rate our preferences twice over. What was once a single, easy service to keep track of and enjoy will now become a convoluted mess of wasted time. This is the same company that expected to lose a million subscribers as a result of their recent price hikes. I stuck with them after that move. caused a storm of outrage that you think would have made So Im left to wonder why a company that is already losing customers decided their best step forward was to alienate the ones they have left. Clearly Hastings believes online streaming is the way of the future and that the mail service that made his company so successful over a decade ago will soon become a remnant of the past. Hes said as much, and in a conveniently left out of the email every customer received this week), he spells it out by stating that DVD by mail may not last forever. Hes probably right. Media consumption is rapidly changing, and I have no doubt well be consuming very little of our entertainment from physical storage units in the near future. But as important as it is for a technologically based solutely critical for any company to look to their customers. Unfortunately, the stockholders do. Following Netflixs poorly handled price increases earlier this year, share prices dropped 19 percent. I can only imagine a similar fall will accompany this recent change. we do have to wonder what in the world the executives in California are thinking. Theyre separated from most of their customers by thousands of miles and an array of computer screens. Apparently that distance has caused them to forget whos sitting on the other side, bookmarking a whole new website for a service they used to be able to get for free. When huge corporations decide they can neglect their customers, were the ones who suffer. For my part, Ill be doing what I can to send a message to the guys in charge. lacking maybe enough to justify cutting my subscription. One single message wont make much of an impact, but I imagine millions will. Lets hope they get it. Alex Guilmartin is a psychology and pre-law senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the EditorColumnist wrong about effect of unionsOn Monday, Travis Hornsbys column was almost as erroneous as it was backward. First, Walker targeted collective bargaining even after the unions agreed to the concessions, making it an attack on the ideal of unions, not about balancing any budgets (he also lowered taxes on corporations). Second, Boeing moved its plant in retaliation to workers striking. This is against the law. Get over it. Boeing broke the law and now needs to pay. Third, the cleaning staff at UF does have a union; its AFSCME. UF tried to bust it in 2002 by switching everyone to TEAMS from USPS, and there is a lawsuit in the works on this. Along with AFSCME, there is also UFF and GAU on campus. Aside from these (and a few other) factual errors, Hornsby seems to be stuck in the gross individualism that caused our current economic crisis. Unions are not to blame; it was the individually motivated greed of a small group of rich people. The bankers speculated on everything from agricultural goods to mortgages, and the bubble collapsed. They got bailed out while working families got sold out. Now these companies are sitting on nearly $2 trillion, while 1 in 6 Americans are poor, 45 million are on food stamps, and the median income dropped 2.3 percent last year. We have this mentality that tells us private sector, non-unionized employees need to be pitted against public sector, largely unionized ones. This is a feeble attempt to divide the middle class so everyone will take cuts a sort of race to the bottom. But unions are the vanguard of the middle class. They set the standard non-unionized workers enjoy. Everything from child labor laws, the 40-hour work week, overtime pay and retirement came from the union movement. Instead of lowering the standard of living for everyone, how about elevating everyone? Jeremiah Tattersall State Organizer for Fight Back Florida Delegate to the North Central Florida Central Labor Council Negotiations necessary for peace Direct negotiations between the State of Israel and the Palestinian National Author ity, as opposed to a unilateral declaration of independence at the United Nations, is a fundamental basis for achieving a peaceful and mutually agreeable formation of a future Palestinian state. Based on the notion of equality between parties wherein joint cooperation, trust and respect for one another underlie any discussions, the direct negotiations method is facilitative in bringing about an agreement that acknowledges both historical territorial claims to land while also taking into account the current demographic and security realities involved in the creation of a Palestinian state. Direct negotiations is not only an internationally proven method to reach a constructive agreement; it is the only reliable way to achieve true and lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Israel is a peaceful, democratic nation in a region replete with autocratic regimes that do not believe in equality, tolerance of others or nonviolence. Surrounded by enemies, Israel has learned the value of compromising with responsible partners to bring about peaceful Through a combination of goodwill measures starting with Anwar Sadats famous diplomatic visit to Jerusalem in 1977 and Israels return of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt, Israel and Egypt were able to negotiate with one another culminating in the Nobel Peace Prizewinning Camp David Accords. The Washington Declaration signed between Jordan and Israel in 1994 led to normalized relations between the two states and an end to a 46-year-long state of war. As these resolutions demonstrate, there is no credible and effective substitute for direct negotiations between partners willing to reach a viable, By refusing to come to the table and negotiate with Israel since last September, the Palestinian Authority despite pleas from Israel, the United States, the European Union and others is preventing constructive dialogue from taking place that will eventually lead to the formation of a Palestinian state. This intransigence is not only counterproductive; it can potentially render moot previous progress and goodwill gestures made to resolving this Authoritys willingness to engage in unity talks with Hamas, a militant group deemed to be a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. Department of State whose constitution does not recognize the State of Israel and calls for its destruction, demonstrates misplaced priorities and is an action not conducive to reaching a peaceable agreement with Israel. Having made historic and unprecedented territorial withdrawals throughout her history, Israel is once again ready to cede territory to others to gain peace. By coming to the negotiating table, a lasting peace and amicable end this understanding that we ask our fellow students, faculty members and administrators to support an immediate and prompt resumption of direct negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis and to oppose a Palestinian unilateral declaration of independence at the United Nations.

For the 2008-2009 school year, UF distributed about $501.7 million in aid, which includes employment, grants, loans and scholarships. It distributed about $540.5 million for the 20092010 school year. The survey also indicated that students with money arent the only ones with an advantage in the admissions process. Minority students, athletes, veterans, children of alumni and men were all cited as groups who may be admitted before other applicants, even if they have lower scores. Orlando said UF takes a holistic approach to the admissions process, meaning SAT scores and grade-point average are not the only factors. Each applicant is evaluated individually, and factors like socioeconomic status, volunteer experience and special talents are also considered, according to the admissions website. We look at the whole person and what they can bring to the university, Orlando said. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011Haley Stracher / AlligatorBack to their rootsRick Rosenbluth, a third-year Jewish studies and family, youth, and community sciences major, and Oscar Gonzalez, an ecology graduate student, chat at Talk Israel on the Plaza of the Americas Wednesday. IT WILL BE HELD SEPT. 24 AND 25. ERICA A. HERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterThis weekend, Gainesvilles full force. The Chamber of Hispanic Affairs will host the 10th annual Downtown Latino Festival in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. The festival will be held from noon to 5 p.m. on Sept. 24 and 25 at the Bo Diddley Downtown Community Plaza at 111 E. University Ave. The Chamber of Hispanic tion, will bring vendors and informational booths, as well as live musical and cultural per formances together. We also strive to connect the Hispanic population and greater community to resources such as health awareness, testresources, said David Ruiz, treasurer of the Chamber of Hispanic Affairs and organizer of the event. Though the festival is returning for its 10th year, it has seen changes in the declining economy. planning the festival is from year to year trying to keep the same sponsors and vendors given the economic conditions out there, Ruiz said. According to the 2010 U.S Census, 8.4 percent of people living in Alachua County are Hispanic. But the Downtown Latino Festival does not only cater to Hispanics. It celebrates Latinos and offers them a chance to share their culture with the other 91.6 per cent of community members. [The festival] creates a presence for Latino people. Most people think of Gainesville as a white town. This lets people know about other cultures, said Stephanie Salazar, president of The Hispanic Student Association and past attendee of the festival. According to the College year students are Hispanic/ Latino. Accounting freshman Gloria Hernandez said shes looking forward to the festival. Its all about the food. You cant get any home cooking up here, at least for us Hispanics, ing the festival, [I] have to have my tostada and caf con leche.Latino festival back for 10th year of food, funKindle feature already upand-running on websitecheck out a copy at a time. The borrowed books will have almost all of the features of pur chased Kindle books, including the ability to save margin notes, according to a press release. Nickie Kortus, spokeswoman for the Alachua County library system, said the library had been preparing for the launch of this feature for a while but never had a set launch date. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Kindle feature was up-andrunning on the librarys website. Kortus said the only glitches to date have been with readers attempting to access texts via mobile phone apps. The Alachua County library system has offered e-books through OverDrive since 2008, said Kortus. These books were downloadable to a PC or an iPad but were devices. Not all books available in hard copy will be available in e-book format. Some publishing companies, like Macmillan and Simon & Schuster, have refused to give libraries the rights to lend their e-books. The Alachua County librar ies currently offer 5,262 Kindle book titles. Just like the physical branches, the e-branch has multiple copies of many titles based on popularity. The library has 9,000 e-books available for checkout. Kortus said the library, like the rest of the country, has seen a huge growth in e-book circulation. In 2010, the countys e-branch saw 58,341 checkouts. So far this year, there have been 105,591 checkouts a number Kortus expects to increase even more following the Kindle agreement. Were so excited to have this addition to the services that we can provide our patrons, she said. People now have another choice of how they can read. LIBRARY, from page 1 AID, from page 1Financial aid not a factor at UF Students will only enroll for spring, summermentioning that the program allows the university to admit more qualithey would take classes during the two terms that arent already at capacity, Evans said. Although academic instruction will be the same as the traditional Fall/Spring enrollment model, students in any of the 37 majors offered by Innovation Academy will have more opportunities to participate in multidisciplinary activities. Evans said the program places an emphasis on entrepreneurship and creativity within the courses of study, and students learn about their majors in a much larger context. Applications for admission to UF opened Aug. 1. As of Monday, Evans said about 2,000 students had applied overall and 8 percent had applied for Innovation Academy. However, she said, the application deadline is Nov. 1, so its too early to tell how much interest there is in the program. Last year, more than 29,000 students applied to UF as freshmen. Evans said she expects about the same this year. Evans said students main concerns about Innovation Academy had to do whether their majors were offered and what types of campus activities theyll be allowed to participate in during the fall. We had many of the same questions as with other students State legislature has adjusted the rules so that Innovation Academy students will receive Bright Futures during the Summer semester, and students will be able to join campus clubs and organizations during Fall semester. There are very few limitations for students who choose to participate in the program, Evans said. Jos Cervantes, a 17-year-old senior at South Dade Senior High in Homestead, Fla., is about one-third of the way through his application to UF, where he wants to study contemporary history. He said he would consider applying to Innovation Academy because of smaller class sizes. As long as his major is available, he doesnt see a problem with skipping Fall semesters. Its no different than going dur ing the fall, so I wouldnt mind, I guess, he said.

According to tiestoblog.com, his perfor mance for more than 25,000 people in Arnto hold a solo concert in a stadium, and Tiesto with his performance for the opening ceremoTiestos new single, Maximal Crazy, was released on iTunes Tuesday through his new record label Musical Freedom.

The Avenue got the chance to get to know Tiesto a little better, so take a peek at what the worlds No. 1 DJ had to say. What prompted this Club Life College Invasion tour? The college fans; they have reached out heavily on my social networks asking me to come play at their schools, so here I come! How could I disappoint them?! Have you noticed any differences in your concerts between the U.S. and other countries? The U.S. fans are more open to different genres of dance music being played together, while countries around the rest of the world are still more traditional and have a stronger preference to what style of dance music they like. Do you have a prefer ence between big concert venues or small ones? I dont, to be honest; I love (to) see the huge crowds going crazy, but there is something amazing about watching a smaller crowd go just as crazy in a more intimate setting. Maximal Crazy has just been released through Musical Freedom. Tell us about it. Its one of my favorite songs to play right now the crowds go nuts for it! It has an amazing energy, and it turns the party up a notch at my shows. Where did the name Musical Freedom come from? Musical Freedom comes from my desire to put out whatever music I believe in. The theory behind the label is celebrate creativity and diversity. In the past, you usually joined with a company, like Coca-Cola or Armani Exchange, to get music to your listeners. Are you collaborating with any other companies now to get your music out in different ways? Working with brands is becoming a new distribution model. I really like the reach and creativity they offer. I recently worked with Heineken and SanDisk and am doing some things with a few other great partners in the near future. Youve done charity work in the past with Schools4Life. Will you be performing for any charities in the near future? The dance4life program that I am an ambassador for has done an amazing job educating young people about HIV and AIDS, and we look for every opportunity to work hand-inhand to reach my fans through my music and shows. What kind of music do you listen to your self? I listen to a lot of different types of music these days. Recently, Ive been listening to everything from Bassjackers and Sandro Silva to Bon Iver and The Naked and Famous. come? I always wanted to do something with music. I would always love playing music for my family and friends and watch them enjoy it, and I found the perfect profession to be able to keep doing just that. How does your inspiration for tracks come to you? me. It can come from other music or from the different places that I travel to, but it can also come from movies, art or even other people. Do you have any items that you simply cannot travel without? My iPhone! If you were to go into a recording studio to pick it up of course! What do you consider to be one of your greatest accomplishments? be pretty high up there, along with Ipanema Beach, but its also meant a huge amount to me to use my position to work with charities and spread their message.Stephanie Pistel / AlligatorTiesto will bring his Club Life College Invasion Tour to the Alachua County Fairgrounds Sept. 26.

ALYSSA HOLCOMB Avenue Writer A folding table, two guitars, an open balcony and a mashed heap of metal for a holiday tree are all thats needed to set the stage for Rent, the rock-opera phenomenon that has become one of Broadways best-known musicals. The Gainesville Community Playhouses production, which runs Sept. 23 through Oct. 16, keeps the classic mantra of No day but today alive and vibrant through both the music and the movement. Thats the whole theme of the entire show, said Erin Kleim, the shows director. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. If you really stop and think about that, it actually gets you more and more the more you listen to it. The show, loosely based on the Puccini opera La Boheme, focuses on the lives of eight New York City residents, ranging from dressing street percussionist. Riddled with disease, romance and reality, the group members live la vie boheme, the bohemian life, in ing to the fullest extent. It takes a lot of life experience (that) has to be drawn from that, said Phil Young, who plays frustrated musician Roger Davis. Young attended a musical theater school and served in the military before returning to the stage in Rent. While the playhouse has been noted for putting on more classic musicals, its shows like Rent that motivate those onstage and offstage to open doors for more modern performances in the future. The GCP is really supportive. Were in a very understanding, liberal town, and I feel like theyre going to be open for us to do Rent, Young said. Its an abstract show. Its not your campy s musical. Kleim said you cant deny Rent is a very real show. We have a smaller community here. This theater itself has never, ever done a show like this, Kleim said. But I have faith that enough people love the show (and) that they will come out and see this. Audiences are cautioned that there are adult themes and language in the show, so it is suitable for mature audiences and not recommended for young children. Tickets are $16 for regular admission and $10 for students with IDs only on the day of the show. Regular admission tickets can be 352-376-4949, or online at gcplayhouse.org. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 Courtesy to the Alligator In Rent, characters Roger (left, Phil Young) and Mark (right, Peter to live each day as if it were their last.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 David Carr / Alligator UF volleyball player Kristy Jaeckel said this move is used to distract the other team. ALYSSA HOLCOMB Avenue Writer Volleyball is an action-packed sport full of hits, sets and spikes. Yet for those less knowledgeable of the game, things can get confusing. But all it takes is some simple set-ups, key vocabulary and a little demonstration to make the courtside match easily understandable to those in the stands. One particular play used in the game is a go eight-two, which is used to not only distract the other team but to isolate a player in order to get a ball. UF outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel compared the play to another common sports move. Its almost like a basketball lay-up, Jaeckel said. We use it in pretty much any game. It gives us different angles to hit and a different look for them. The play consists of four main players. The outside hitter goes to the left side of the court and passes it to the setter. Meanwhile, the middle hitter sets the ball after she goes behind the setter. When the right side hitter transitions to the middle, the other team gets distracted, and the middle hitter spikes the ball. A good time to use it would be in transition or when the ball is in play, Jaeckel said. Plays like these allow the team to effectively execute moves that allow them to go for the kill or get the ball to the floor, resulting in a point. A big thing is communication, Jaeckel said. Its the hitters that are calling the sets that they want. See the Gators use this move against Kentucky tomorrow night at 7 in the OConnell Center.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011THE MAILBAGWere back at it again with another edition of The Mailbag. We dont want to delay you from the awesome submissions this week, so lets get right to it. @zachmoller: You have to choose one player from UK to start for the Gators. Who? Cmon, Zach, you have to hit us with harder questions than that one. The answer is simple: LaRod King, Kentuckys leading receiver. King ranks 64th in the nation in receiving yards per game, and has 226 yards and three scores on 14 receptions this season thats twice as many as Floridas top wide receiver, Deonte Thompson. King was solid last year as a sophomore, too. He had more touchoptions in the passing game, and would have been second in receptions, just two behind Thompson. @dolfan0516: What is Tyler Jetts Twitter handle? This is a topic of much heated debate. Well, not very heated, but it has caused quite a confusion in the Twittersphere. Tyler Jett (the be found on Twitter at @Tyler__Jett. Notice the double-underscore in the name. Theres another Tyler Jett out there, one who isnt a student at UF. He happened to claim the handle @Tyler_Jett with just a single underscore, before our Tyler had the opportunity to do so. Plenty of people have tweeted at this Tyler Jett in attempts to get a hold of our Dee Finley.

Coach Will Muschamp, to the best of our knowledge, has always referred to No. 4 as Andre DOO-bose. However, we believe the proper pronunciation is neither DEE-bose nor DOO-bose, but rather Duh-bose. But, like Muschamp, we arent going to say the name right, either. Instead, we think Andre DeBOOM has a better ring to it after the wide receiver de-cleated Tennessees Jacques Smith.

Maggie Rodgers not only accomplished this feat, but did so while seeing time at a position she had never played before. High School, Rodgers was an all-county selection each year as a forward, and and honorable mention selection in 2009. As a freshman last season, Rodgers but never for more than 44 minutes. a change, Rodgers said. Everyone was you. Everyone came from high school where they were the big stars in their hometown, and it gets a little more competitive, and that was something I was not used to back home. coach Victor Campbell, heading into this season, Rodgers was in a position where she would have to wait another forward, so he approached her about switching to outside back. do it, Rodgers said. She eventually changed her mind, and started playing defense in Summer B practices and during the preseason. She told Campbell she trusted him if he thought the switch was best for her. Campbell said Rodgers possesses several attributes of an elite outside back, including good athleticism, the strong technical skills. In Floridas 7-2 win against Kansas two points of the season, both of which were assists on crosses to forward Tahnai Annis. Opportunities such as those will not be uncommon with Rodgers ability, according to Campbell. Because the other teams defenses and forwards theres rarely any tracking on the outside backs, he said. Thus, having a player with ball skills attack when the defense fails to pick her up. The way Ive scored a lot of my goals in the past is from crosses and getting balls served in from our outside backs, Annis said. crosses off during games. Its where weve generated a lot of offense in the past. Rodgers said she has grown to like her new position better than forward because it allows her to play the game at a slower pace and stay focused on her responsibilities. Campbell said Rodgers has much more to learn about the position, but if she keeps up her current pace, she could be special. If she really wants to do it, he said, she has a good future here as an outside back.Rodgers seeing increased role after switching to defense UF Soccer

Slaughter anytime somebody asked about offensive problems. (In 2009): Why isnt the offense as productive as it was in 2008?: Theres a reason were 9-0. We didnt just fall off the pickle boat. Do you think Mike Pouncey played better at guard than at center?: You wont want to play against him; leave it there. Why is John Brantley running the option?: In the option game with John Brantley, were averaging 5 yards a carry. You need to know that. Thats a fact. No. When he was asked that question, Florida was averaging 3.8 yards on runs by Brantley. Pouncey did struggle from time to time at center. And Floridas 2009 offense did, at times, look like it had fallen off the pickle boat, assuming thats a bad thing. Weis, meanwhile, has not been afraid to criticize his offense when its experiencing problems. In fact, he might be a little too critical. But that is way better than the Addazio reign. Perhaps Addazio didnt have a choice. Perhaps he would have taken even more heat if he admitted failure lord knows it was tough to be an Addazio living in Gainesville last year.

But Quinn said he isnt concerned with Floyds ability at end because the coaching staff just started to experiment with him playing outside during training camp. He hasnt done it as much, Quinn said. Hes getting more comfortable with it; its just taken him some reps to do it. Reed still in doubt: Tight end Jordan Reed did not play against Tennessee with what was initially reported as a hamstring injury. Reed has improved and is reportedly no longer in need of the crutches he used to get to the bench before last Saturdays game, but his status for the game at Kentucky is uncertain. Well, we still have a shot, Muschamp said. Hes been moving around a little bit, and again, hes a little gimpy here and there, but who knows. Weve got a lot of time from here until Saturday.

Everybody does it, Phillips said. We try to do it also. [Theres] nothing illegal about it ... they do a great job of it. To counteract UFs tendency to block punts, Phillips said Kentucky needs to focus on sticking to assignments and executing to perfection. to be caused by poor execution by Florida Atlantic, while the one against Tennessee looked like a missed assignment. You cant have missed assignments and you cant have botched operation either, Phillips said. Either one of those two things and those things will cause blocks.

He has started all three games this season alongside sophomore Cody Riggs. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer Before Marcus Roberson could start as a true freshman, he had to learn how to properly prepare for a game, not just physically, but mentally. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said he has noticed improvement in that area from Roberson, there was a learning curve. Early on we had to sit down and say, This is how you do it, and this is what you look for, Quinn said. Once you learn that skill, its always going to stay with you as a player. One of the hardest things about coming in as a rookie is how do you even learn how to prepare for a game. How do you take notes on guys? How do you even watch tape? Instead of watching the ball, Roberson is now focused on formations and learning how a receiver likes to break press coverage, preparing him to come to the meetings armed with questions. Quinn said hes been impressed with the level of competitiveness from Roberson and fellow corner Cody Riggs, particularly against Tennessee, despite some criticism for multiple pass interference penalties. Were going to play physical, he said. Were going to coach aggressive and play aggressive. Some of those penalties, if theyre bangbang plays, are going to happen. For us, were going to stay to our style of play. Rainey for Heisman: Gators running back Chris Rainey has more than 500 yards of total offense through three games.

Florida had a chance to run out the clock with 4:46 left but went three-and-out (Not very happy about that).

JASMINE EARLSAlligator Contributing WriterThe Alachua County Commission has once again opted to postpone the decision to move county fairgrounds from its current location in east Gainesville to Newberry. After nearly a decade of stalled efforts in appropriating the fairground land by the City of Gainesville and Alachua County, the decision leaves many questions open. Plan East Gainesville, a redevelopment plan completed in 2003, makes reinvestment on the east side a priority for the city, but the city of Newberrys newest proposal calls to move the fairgrounds to the west. fairgrounds to the west would further debilitate East Gainesvilles dwindling economy. have also recognized that moving the fairgrounds neglects the original incentives in Plan East Gainesville. Newer development has generally been focused in the west, and the city is concerned that its just another piece being taken away from east Gainesville, said Deputy County Manager Rick Drummond. East Gainesville has been left out in terms of economic development, and the city wants to keep the fairgrounds there as an economic driver, Drummond said. Were still moving forward with plans for the fairgrounds, Drummond said. Just a bit slower than we expected. hand, understand that the land hasnt been adequately used, and the Newberry proposal focuses primarily on the full use of that land. Projected construction costs outlined in Plan East Gainesville are estimated over $40 million. The Commission-approved plan includes the construction of a 50,000 square foot coliseum, a 48,000 square foot exhibition hall, a 50,000 square foot equestrian and livestock arena, an events lawn and a parking area. Construction would start in April 2012. A 2-percent Tourist Development Tax would be implemented to offset costs. The Tourist Development Tax, which is funded by tourists to the area, would be added to hotel and motel bills, campsites and short-term rentals. The annual expected return of the Tour ist Development Tax would be $650,000. During a commission meeting Tuesday, county commissioners urged that moving the fairgrounds to Newberry makes more sense economically because sports tour ism facilities already exist in the area and would only further stem business for the fairgrounds. Earlier this year, plans to gauge interest for the land in the private sector were met with little enthusiasm. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011Alligator File Photo BENJAMIN S.

Of the 29,000 students who applied in 2011, just 11,423 high school graduates made it through the application process. Of those, 6,400 students decided to come to UF in the fall, he said. Those other 5,023 went to other schools for their college education, including MIT, Stanford, Duke and more, Or lando said. We unfor tunately said no to a lot of outstanding students, he said. In the state of Florida, UF was the university with the third most SAT scores sent for consideration, according to a College Board report.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $6 and can be purchased at Gators Dockside or from employees who will be selling tickets in their classes and around campus at UF as well as at Santa Fe College. The restaurants Twitter and Facebook pages are also being used to spread the word to the Gainesville community. Moro spent a week at Shands HealthCare hospital and was recently transported to Shepherd Center in Atlanta, medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury and brain injury, according to the hospitals website. Bianca Bonito, a co-worker and friend of Moros, has been in contact with her since the accident. Shes just a good person, Bonito said. Everything she says is positive. Unlike other fundraisers hosted by Gators Dockside, the Caring for Cara Fundraiser will donate 100 percent of its proceeds to Moros family in order to help pay for hospital and rehabilitation expenses, said Russ Bockemuehl, kitchen manager at Gators Dockside. A ticket will get you a drink, pancakes, eggs and bacon, according to St. Peter. This will be the biggest breakfast weve ever had, Bockemuehl said. As of last week at least 350 tickets have already been sold by the 35 servers who currently work at the restaurant. It really hits home when its someone from the Gators Dockside family, Bockemuehl said. The staff has rallied together in order to help Cara and her family. I just want everything to be taken care of, Bonito said. All of their worries should be on Cara, not on money.DDrummond This will be the biggest breakfast weve ever had.

Column EditorialTHURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Elizabeth Behrman EDITOR Joey Flechas MANAGING EDITOR Justin Hayes OPINIONS EDITORTestimony TroublesEyewitness accounts may not be enough Last night, the state of Georgia killed Troy Davis. Davis was convicted in 1991 of murdering Savannah His conviction was based solely on eyewitness testimony. No physical or biological evidence tied Davis to the scene of the crime. Many believe Davis is innocent, and the doubts raised in the two decades since his conviction mean there is a possibility that Georgia put an innocent man to death. According to the Innocence Project, seven of the nine wittheir testimony. Some witnesses, including Jeffrey Sapp, said they were pressured by police to connect Davis with the shooting. Was Davis simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? Those speaking out against Troys execution have come from all sides of the aisle. According to ABC News, former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr said, even for death penalty supporters such as myself, the level of doubt inherent in this case is troubling. The fact that his conviction was based solely on eyewitness reports is also troubling given the questionable reliability of these statements. Psychologist Elizabeth Loftus conducted an experiment in which participants were shown a slide show of a car accident. One group of participants was asked how fast the cars were traveling when they hit each other and another group was asked how fast they were going when they smashed into each other. Members of the second group were more likely to report seeing broken glass in the slide show, even though the slide showed no broken glass. events like a shooting? Surely people would be able to remember those better. In another study, 54 students from Duke University answered questions about their memory of 9/11 the day after it happened. When the same group of students were asked the same questions years later, most of their stories had completely changed in terms of their surroundings and how they found out about the attacks. Although the argument still rages on in the psychological community about the ability of people to remember past events, validity of eyewitness testimony especially when the life of a human being hangs in the balance. We can certainly debate whether or not a convicted murderer deserves to be executed. However, when doubt exists about a persons level of guilt, those who support and oppose the death penalty should each give serious consideration to the possible negative consequences of our justice system.34 TOTAL VOTES62% YES 38% NOWednesdays question: Are you looking forward to using electronic voting for the upcoming SG election? Todays question: your tuition fees? On Monday morning, I received an email from NetInc.s CEO, Reed Hastings. In it, he politely informed me that he was apologizing for the way his company had mishandled its last service change. breaking up into two separate companies and two separate services. the DVD-by-mail service would break off into another company called Qwikster. It would have its own website, its own payment system and its own ratings information. Its easy to see what inconveniences will arise for customers who have previously enjoyed access to both services. We will now have to visit two separate websites to DVD becomes available for instant streaming, we wont If wed like recommendations for movies we may enjoy, well have to rate our preferences twice over. What was once a single, easy service to keep track of and enjoy will now become a convoluted mess of wasted time. This is the same company that expected to lose a million subscribers as a result of their recent price hikes. I stuck with them after that move. caused a storm of outrage that you think would have made So Im left to wonder why a company that is already losing customers decided their best step forward was to alienate the ones they have left. Clearly Hastings believes online streaming is the way of the future and that the mail service that made his company so successful over a decade ago will soon become a remnant of the past. Hes said as much, and in a conveniently left out of the email every customer received this week), he spells it out by stating that DVD by mail may not last forever. Hes probably right. Media consumption is rapidly changing, and I have no doubt well be consuming very little of our entertainment from physical storage units in the near future. But as important as it is for a technologically based solutely critical for any company to look to their customers. Unfortunately, the stockholders do. Following Netflixs poorly handled price increases earlier this year, share prices dropped 19 percent. I can only imagine a similar fall will accompany this recent change. we do have to wonder what in the world the executives in California are thinking. Theyre separated from most of their customers by thousands of miles and an array of computer screens. Apparently that distance has caused them to forget whos sitting on the other side, bookmarking a whole new website for a service they used to be able to get for free. When huge corporations decide they can neglect their customers, were the ones who suffer. For my part, Ill be doing what I can to send a message to the guys in charge. lacking maybe enough to justify cutting my subscription.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the EditorColumnist wrong about effect of unionsOn Monday, Travis Hornsbys column was almost as erroneous as it was backward. First, Walker targeted collective bargaining even after the unions agreed to the concessions, making it an attack on the ideal of unions, not about balancing any budgets (he also lowered taxes on corporations). Second, Boeing moved its plant in retaliation to workers striking. This is against the law. Get over it. Boeing broke the law and now needs to pay. Third, the cleaning staff at UF does have a union; its AFSCME. UF tried to bust it in 2002 by switching everyone to TEAMS from USPS, and there is a lawsuit in the works on this. Along with AFSCME, there is also UFF and GAU on campus. Aside from these (and a few other) factual errors, Hornsby seems to be stuck in the gross individualism that caused our current economic crisis. Unions are not to blame; it was the individually motivated greed of a small group of rich people. The bankers speculated on everything from agricultural goods to mortgages, and the bubble collapsed. They got bailed out while working families got sold out. Now these companies are sitting on nearly $2 trillion, while 1 in 6 Americans are poor, 45 million are on food stamps, and the median income dropped 2.3 percent last year. We have this mentality that tells us private sector, non-unionized employees need to be pitted against public sector, largely unionized ones. This is a feeble attempt to divide the middle class so everyone will take cuts a sort of race to the bottom. But unions are the vanguard of the middle class. They set the standard non-unionized workers enjoy. Everything from child labor laws, the 40-hour work week, overtime pay and retirement came from the union movement. Instead of lowering the standard of living for everyone, how about elevating everyone? Jeremiah Tattersall State Organizer for Fight Back Florida Delegate to the North Central Florida Central Labor Council Negotiations necessary for peace Direct negotiations between the State of Israel and the Palestinian National Author ity, as opposed to a unilateral declaration of independence at the United Nations, is a fundamental basis for achieving a peaceful and mutually agreeable formation of a future Palestinian state. Based on the notion of equality between parties wherein joint cooperation, trust and respect for one another underlie any discussions, the direct negotiations method is facilitative in bringing about an agreement that acknowledges both historical territorial claims to land while also taking into account the current demographic and security realities involved in the creation of a Palestinian state. Direct negotiations is not only an internationally proven method to reach a constructive agreement; it is the only reliable way to achieve true and lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Israel is a peaceful, democratic nation in a region replete with autocratic regimes that do not believe in equality, tolerance of others or nonviolence. Surrounded by enemies, Israel has learned the value of compromising with responsible partners to bring about peaceful Through a combination of goodwill measures starting with Anwar Sadats famous diplomatic visit to Jerusalem in 1977 and Israels return of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt, Israel and Egypt were able to negotiate with one another culminating in the Nobel Peace Prizewinning Camp David Accords. The Washington Declaration signed between Jordan and Israel in 1994 led to normalized relations between the two states and an end to a 46-year-long state of war. As these resolutions demonstrate, there is no credible and effective substitute for direct negotiations between partners willing to reach a viable, By refusing to come to the table and negotiate with Israel since last September, the Palestinian Authority despite pleas from Israel, the United States, the European Union and others is preventing constructive dialogue from taking place that will eventually lead to the formation of a Palestinian state. This intransigence is not only counterproductive; it can potentially render moot previous progress and goodwill gestures made to resolving this Authoritys willingness to engage in unity talks with Hamas, a militant group deemed to be a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. Department of State whose constitution does not recognize the State of Israel and calls for its destruction, demonstrates misplaced priorities and is an action not conducive to reaching a peaceable agreement with Israel. Having made historic and unprecedented territorial withdrawals throughout her history, Israel is once again ready to cede territory to others to gain peace. By coming to the negotiating table, a lasting peace and amicable end this understanding that we ask our fellow students, faculty members and administrators to support an immediate and prompt resumption of direct negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis and to oppose a Palestinian unilateral declaration of independence at the United Nations.

The university has no intention of increasing the number of out-of-state students it admits in the future, he said. non-issue for admission, he said, especially given the fact that about 90 percent of applicants have the majority of their tuition paid for already under scholarship programs like Florida Bright Futures or Florida Prepaid. to UF students increases every year. For the 2008-2009 school year, UF distributed about $501.7 million in aid, which includes employment, grants, loans and scholarships. It distributed about $540.5 million for the 20092010 school year. The survey also indicated that students with money arent the only ones with an advantage in the admissions process. Minority students, athletes, veterans, children of alumni and men were all cited as groups who may be admitted before other applicants, even if they have lower scores. Orlando said UF takes a holistic approach to the admissions process, meaning SAT scores and grade-point average are not the only factors. Each applicant is evaluated individually, and factors like socioeconomic status, volunteer experience and special talents are also considered, according to the admissions website. We look at the whole person and what they can bring to the university, Orlando said. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011Haley Stracher / AlligatorBack to their rootsRick Rosenbluth, a third-year Jewish studies and family, youth, and community sciences major, and Oscar Gonzalez, an ecology graduate student, chat at Talk Israel on the Plaza of the Americas Wednesday. IT WILL BE HELD SEPT. 24 AND 25. ERICA A. HERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterThis weekend, Gainesvilles full force. The Chamber of Hispanic Affairs will host the 10th annual Downtown Latino Festival in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. The festival will be held from noon to 5 p.m. on Sept. 24 and 25 at the Bo Diddley Downtown Community Plaza at 111 E. University Ave. The Chamber of Hispanic tion, will bring vendors and informational booths, as well as live musical and cultural per formances together. We also strive to connect the Hispanic population and greater community to resources such as health awareness, testresources, said David Ruiz, treasurer of the Chamber of Hispanic Affairs and organizer of the event. Though the festival is returning for its 10th year, it has seen changes in the declining economy. planning the festival is from year to year trying to keep the same sponsors and vendors given the economic conditions out there, Ruiz said. According to the 2010 U.S Census, 8.4 percent of people living in Alachua County are Hispanic. But the Downtown Latino Festival does not only cater to Hispanics. It celebrates Latinos and offers them a chance to share their culture with the other 91.6 per cent of community members. [The festival] creates a presence for Latino people. Most people think of Gainesville as a white town. This lets people know about other cultures, said Stephanie Salazar, president of The Hispanic Student Association and past attendee of the festival. According to the College year students are Hispanic/ Latino. Accounting freshman Gloria Hernandez said shes looking forward to the festival. Its all about the food. You cant get any home cooking up here, at least for us Hispanics, ing the festival, [I] have to have my tostada and caf con leche.Latino festival back for 10th year of food, funKindle feature already upand-running on websitecheck out a copy at a time. The borrowed books will have almost all of the features of pur chased Kindle books, including the ability to save margin notes, according to a press release. Nickie Kortus, spokeswoman for the Alachua County library system, said the library had been preparing for the launch of this feature for a while but never had a set launch date. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Kindle feature was up-andrunning on the librarys website. Kortus said the only glitches to date have been with readers attempting to access texts via mobile phone apps. The Alachua County library system has offered e-books through OverDrive since 2008, said Kortus. These books were downloadable to a PC or an iPad but were devices. Not all books available in hard copy will be available in e-book format. Some publishing companies, like Macmillan and Simon & Schuster, have refused to give libraries the rights to lend their e-books. The Alachua County librar ies currently offer 5,262 Kindle book titles. Just like the physical branches, the e-branch has multiple copies of many titles based on popularity. The library has 9,000 e-books available for checkout. Kortus said the library, like the rest of the country, has seen a huge growth in e-book circulation. In 2010, the countys e-branch saw 58,341 checkouts. So far this year, there have been 105,591 checkouts a number Kortus expects to increase even more following the Kindle agreement. Were so excited to have this addition to the services that we can provide our patrons, she said. People now have another choice of how they can read. LIBRaARY, from page 1 AID, from page 1Financial aid not a factor at UF Students will only enroll for spring, summermentioning that the program allows the university to admit more qualithey would take classes during the two terms that arent already at capacity, Evans said. Although academic instruction will be the same as the traditional Fall/Spring enrollment model, students in any of the 37 majors offered by Innovation Academy will have more opportunities to participate in multidisciplinary activities. Evans said the program places an emphasis on entrepreneurship and creativity within the courses of study, and students learn about their majors in a much larger context. Applications for admission to UF opened Aug. 1. As of Monday, Evans said about 2,000 students had applied overall and 8 percent had applied for Innovation Academy. However, she said, the application deadline is Nov. 1, so its too early to tell how much interest there is in the program. Last year, more than 29,000 students applied to UF as freshmen. Evans said she expects about the same this year. Evans said students main concerns about Innovation Academy had to do whether their majors were offered and what types of campus activities theyll be allowed to participate in during the fall. We had many of the same questions as with other students State legislature has adjusted the rules so that Innovation Academy students will receive Bright Futures during the Summer semester, and students will be able to join campus clubs and organizations during Fall semester. There are very few limitations for students who choose to participate in the program, Evans said. Jos Cervantes, a 17-year-old senior at South Dade Senior High in Homestead, Fla., is about one-third of the way through his application to UF, where he wants to study contemporary history. He said he would consider applying to Innovation Academy because of smaller class sizes. As long as his major is available, he doesnt see a problem with skipping Fall semesters. Its no different than going dur ing the fall, so I wouldnt mind, I guess, he said.

The Avenue got the chance to get to know Tiesto a little better, so take a peek at what the worlds No. 1 DJ had to say. What prompted this Club Life College Invasion tour? The college fans; they have reached out heavily on my social networks asking me to come play at their schools, so here I come! How could I disappoint them?! Have you noticed any differences in your concerts between the U.S. and other countries? The U.S. fans are more open to different genres of dance music being played together, while countries around the rest of the world are still more traditional and have a stronger preference to what style of dance music they like. Do you have a prefer ence between big concert venues or small ones? I dont, to be honest; I love (to) see the huge crowds going crazy, but there is something amazing about watching a smaller crowd go just as crazy in a more intimate setting. Maximal Crazy has just been released through Musical Freedom. Tell us about it. Its one of my favorite songs to play right now the crowds go nuts for it! It has an amazing energy, and it turns the party up a notch at my shows. Where did the name Musical Freedom come from? Musical Freedom comes from my desire to put out whatever music I believe in. The theory behind the label is celebrate creativity and diversity. In the past, you usually joined with a company, like Coca-Cola or Armani Exchange, to get music to your listeners. Are you collaborating with any other companies now to get your music out in different ways? Working with brands is becoming a new distribution model. I really like the reach and creativity they offer. I recently worked with Heineken and SanDisk and am doing some things with a few other great partners in the near future. Youve done charity work in the past with Schools4Life. Will you be performing for any charities in the near future? The dance4life program that I am an ambassador for has done an amazing job educating young people about HIV and AIDS, and we look for every opportunity to work hand-inhand to reach my fans through my music and shows. What kind of music do you listen to your self? I listen to a lot of different types of music these days. Recently, Ive been listening to everything from Bassjackers and Sandro Silva to Bon Iver and The Naked and Famous. come? I always wanted to do something with music. I would always love playing music for my family and friends and watch them enjoy it, and I found the perfect profession to be able to keep doing just that. How does your inspiration for tracks come to you? me. It can come from other music or from the different places that I travel to, but it can also come from movies, art or even other people. Do you have any items that you simply cannot travel without? My iPhone! If you were to go into a recording studio to pick it up of course!

ALYSSA HOLCOMB Avenue Writer A folding table, two guitars, an open balcony and a mashed heap of metal for a holiday tree are all thats needed to set the stage for Rent, the rock-opera phenomenon that has become one of Broadways best-known musicals. The Gainesville Community Playhouses production, which runs Sept. 23 through Oct. 16, keeps the classic mantra of No day but today alive and vibrant through both the music and the movement. Thats the whole theme of the entire show, said Erin Kleim, the shows director. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. If you really stop and think about that, it actually gets you more and more the more you listen to it. The show, loosely based on the Puccini opera La Boheme, focuses on the lives of eight New York City residents, ranging from dressing street percussionist. Riddled with disease, romance and reality, the group members live la vie boheme, the bohemian life, in ing to the fullest extent. It takes a lot of life experience (that) has to be drawn from that, said Phil Young, who plays frustrated musician Roger Davis. Young attended a musical theater school and served in the military before returning to the stage in Rent. While the playhouse has been noted for putting on more classic musicals, its shows like Rent that motivate those onstage and offstage to open doors for more modern performances in the future. The GCP is really supportive. Were in a very understanding, liberal town, and I feel like theyre going to be open for us to do Rent, Young said. Its an abstract show. Its not your campy s musical. Kleim said you cant deny Rent is a very real show. We have a smaller community here. This theater itself has never, ever done a show like this, Kleim said. But I have faith that enough people love the show (and) that they will come out and see this. Audiences are cautioned that there are adult themes and language in the show, so it is suitable for mature audiences and not recommended for young children. Tickets are $16 for regular admission and $10 for students with IDs only on the day of the show. Regular admission tickets can be 352-376-4949, or online at gcplayhouse.org. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 Courtesy to the Alligator In Rent, characters Roger (left, Phil Young) and Mark (right, Peter to live each day as if it were their last.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 David Carr / Alligator UF volleyball player Kristy Jaeckel said this move is used to distract the other team. ALYSSA HOLCOMB Avenue Writer Volleyball is an action-packed sport full of hits, sets and spikes. Yet for those less knowledgeable of the game, things can get confusing. But all it takes is some simple set-ups, key vocabulary and a little demonstration to make the courtside match easily understandable to those in the stands. One particular play used in the game is a go eight-two, which is used to not only distract the other team but to isolate a player in order to get a ball. UF outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel compared the play to another common sports move. Its almost like a basketball lay-up, Jaeckel said. We use it in pretty much any game. It gives us different angles to hit and a different look for them. The play consists of four main players. The outside hitter goes to the left side of the court and passes it to the setter. Meanwhile, the middle hitter sets the ball after she goes behind the setter. When the right side hitter transitions to the middle, the other team gets distracted, and the middle hitter spikes the ball. A good time to use it would be in transition or when the ball is in play, Jaeckel said. Plays like these allow the team to effectively execute moves that allow them to go for the kill or get the ball to the floor, resulting in a point. A big thing is communication, Jaeckel said. Its the hitters that are calling the sets that they want. See the Gators use this move against Kentucky tomorrow night at 7 in the OConnell Center.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011THE MAILBAGWere back at it again with another edition of The Mailbag. We dont want to delay you from the awesome submissions this week, so lets get right to it. @zachmoller: You have to choose one player from UK to start for the Gators. Who? Cmon, Zach, you have to hit us with harder questions than that one. The answer is simple: LaRod King, Kentuckys leading receiver. King ranks 64th in the nation in receiving yards per game, and has 226 yards and three scores on 14 receptions this season thats twice as many as Floridas top wide receiver, Deonte Thompson. King was solid last year as a sophomore, too. He had more touchoptions in the passing game, and would have been second in receptions, just two behind Thompson. @dolfan0516: What is Tyler Jetts Twitter handle? This is a topic of much heated debate. Well, not very heated, but it has caused quite a confusion in the Twittersphere. Tyler Jett (the be found on Twitter at @Tyler__Jett. Notice the double-underscore in the name. Theres another Tyler Jett out there, one who isnt a student at UF. He happened to claim the handle @Tyler_Jett with just a single underscore, before our Tyler had the opportunity to do so. Plenty of people have tweeted at this Tyler Jett in attempts to get a hold of our Dee Finley. It happens, but now that you know the difference, dont let the mistake happen again were starting to feel bad for the other Tyler and all the inadvertent tweets he is receiving. @bourbonmeyer: Can someone DEE-Bose or DOO-Bose??  #knowledgeforlife Like Tylers Twitter handle, this one is up for debate, too. Coach Will Muschamp, to the best of our knowledge, has always referred to No. 4 as Andre DOO-bose. However, we believe the proper pronunciation is neither DEE-bose nor DOO-bose, but rather Duh-bose. But, like Muschamp, we arent going to say the name right, either. Instead, we think Andre DeBOOM has a better ring to it after the wide receiver de-cleated Tennessees Jacques Smith. Yeah, were sure you all remember watching the gener ously listed 5-foot-11, 191-pounder using the hit stick on the Vols 6-foot-2, 255-pound defensive lineman on replay in The Swamp. @AlligatorArmy: Which Gators football player would be the best Gators sport is likeliest to win a natl title? First off, props for squeezing three questions into 140 characters. That takes talent. Now, the best player for the rigorous and soul-sucking job of Alligator writer is a tough call. It may very well be Dan Wenger. Not only is he an intelligent guy who plain gets it, but Wenger has the all-important ability to criticize himself an important attribute in any writer worth his or her salt.  As for the most likely to make the team as a walk-on from the Alligaand were pretty sure his eligibility smarts to compete, but hes going to have to hit the weight room pretty hard to hold his own out there. Tom of attack, but there are concerns about his conditioning. Not to make this an all-Tyler Jett edition of The Mailbag, but he has what it takes. Jett played in high school, and hes really tall, so theres that. Plus, his intangibles are off the charts. And...were going to go with lacrosse. Yeah, bet you didnt expect that one. @miggiesmalls: Will Florida ever play an out-of-state, non-conference road game in the future? Not likely. There isnt any incenof Florida for that type of matchup. playing in the SEC, and the annual showdown with Florida State provides an extremely solid and conference opponent. Even then, Florida could theoretically do away with the Noles a play-in for the national title. Until the landscape of college football changes dramatically, and the SEC is no longer the king of the hill, then Floridas schedule will likely stay very similar. @PhilipGaryTalks: hoping for a Pump and Go...any chance? Sorry, Philip, but the days of and even Chris Leak and Tim best chance to get the ball more than Before the 83-yard catch-and-run to Chris Rainey against Tennessee, two of John Brantleys longest passes came on trick plays and both were lucky completions. Quinton Dunbar had to come back almost 10 heave against UAB, and Rainey had to do the same on a similar play against Vanderbilt last year.  the talent at receiver to beat people vertically, were  not sure   certain Brantley cant throw it accurately. Until proven otherwise, keep pinning your hopes on Rainey and Jeff Demps they wont let you down. Submit questions for next weeks mailbag on Twitter: @alligatorSportsBBrett LLe BBlanc / AAlligator StaffMaggie Rodgers never played on defense before coming to Florida, but the sophomore is making the switch in order to see more playing time. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer a soccer player to surpass her minute total from the previous season in less than seven games. Maggie Rodgers not only accomplished this feat, but did so while seeing time at a position she had never played before. High School, Rodgers was an all-county selection each year as a forward, and and honorable mention selection in 2009. As a freshman last season, Rodgers but never for more than 44 minutes. a change, Rodgers said. Everyone was you. Everyone came from high school where they were the big stars in their hometown, and it gets a little more competitive, and that was something I was not used to back home. coach Victor Campbell, heading into this season, Rodgers was in a position where she would have to wait another forward, so he approached her about switching to outside back. do it, Rodgers said. She eventually changed her mind, and started playing defense in Summer B practices and during the preseason. She told Campbell she trusted him if he thought the switch was best for her. Campbell said Rodgers possesses several attributes of an elite outside back, including good athleticism, the strong technical skills. In Floridas 7-2 win against Kansas two points of the season, both of which were assists on crosses to forward Tahnai Annis. Opportunities such as those will not be uncommon with Rodgers ability, according to Campbell. Because the other teams defenses and forwards theres rarely any tracking on the outside backs, he said. Thus, having a player with ball skills attack when the defense fails to pick her up. The way Ive scored a lot of my goals in the past is from crosses and getting balls served in from our outside backs, Annis said. crosses off during games. Its where weve generated a lot of offense in the past. Rodgers said she has grown to like her new position better than forward because it allows her to play the game at a slower pace and stay focused on her responsibilities. Campbell said Rodgers has much more to learn about the position, but if she keeps up her current pace, she could be special. If she really wants to do it, he said, she has a good future here as an outside back.Rodgers seeing increased role after switching to defense UF Soccer

Slaughter anytime somebody asked about offensive problems. (In 2009): Why isnt the offense as productive as it was in 2008?: Theres a reason were 9-0. We didnt just fall off the pickle boat. Do you think Mike Pouncey played better at guard than at center?: You wont want to play against him; leave it there. Why is John Brantley running the option?: In the option game with John Brantley, were averaging 5 yards a carry. You need to know that. Thats a fact. No. When he was asked that question, Florida was averaging 3.8 yards on runs by Brantley. Pouncey did struggle from time to time at center. And Floridas 2009 offense did, at times, look like it had fallen off the pickle boat, assuming thats a bad thing. Weis, meanwhile, has not been afraid to criticize his offense when its experiencing problems. In fact, he might be a little too critical. But that is way better than the Addazio reign. Perhaps Addazio didnt have a choice. Perhaps he would have taken even more heat if he admitted failure lord knows it was tough to be an Addazio living in Gainesville last year. Weis doesnt have those problems. He has already proven himself at the highest level. You want to question whether he knows what hes doing? Pay attention to which one of his four Super Bowl rings he is wearing while you ask. And while youre hanging around, listen for a few self-criticisms. It should make you smile. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator. org. His production and what hes done for our football team, running, catching and on special teams and in return and blocking kicks, youre talking about value to a football team, Muschamp said. But again, its a long season and we need to continue to play consistently well at his position. Rainey leads the team in rushing yards (306) and receiving yards (214) and already Floyd moving around: After playing snaps son, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd said rushing from the edge was harder than it looks. He wont be on the outside full time, as Quinn said Floyd will move around on the line depending on the opponent. But Quinn said he isnt concerned with Floyds ability at end because the coaching staff just started to experiment with him playing outside during training camp. He hasnt done it as much, Quinn said. Hes getting more comfortable with it; its just taken him some reps to do it. Reed still in doubt: Tight end Jordan Reed did not play against Tennessee with what was initially reported as a hamstring injury. Reed has improved and is reportedly no longer in need of the crutches he used to get to the bench before last Saturdays game, but his status for the game at Kentucky is uncertain. Well, we still have a shot, Muschamp said. Hes been moving around a little bit, and again, hes a little gimpy here and there, but who knows. Weve got a lot of time from here until Saturday. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org.Muschamp says Rainey deserves Heisman talk THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 AP PhotoUK coach Joker Phillips said the Gators employ an effective strategy called the mug and trail, leading to success blocking punts. Phillips: Cant miss assignmentshad a punt blocked. Its hard to do because the change in momentum and its obviously easy to score off of. The momentum of the game certainPhillips described Floridas maneuver on block attempts as a mug and trail, where a defender occupies a lineman with his hands and pulls him to open up a hole for a speedier defensive player to gun through and get to the punter. Everybody does it, Phillips said. We try to do it also. [Theres] nothing illegal about it ... they do a great job of it. To counteract UFs tendency to block punts, Phillips said Kentucky needs to focus on sticking to assignments and executing to perfection. to be caused by poor execution by Florida Atlantic, while the one against Tennessee looked like a missed assignment. You cant have missed assignments and you cant have botched operation either, Phillips said. Either one of those two things and those things will cause blocks. We have to get a hat on a hat and get the operation off. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org. KENTUCKY, from page 20 NOTEBOOK, from page 20 TYLER, from page 20

Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffAs a true freshman, UF cornerback Marcus Roberson has had to learn how to prepare for a game at the collegiate level. He has started all three games this season alongside sophomore Cody Riggs. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer Before Marcus Roberson could start as a true freshman, he had to learn how to properly prepare for a game, not just physically, but mentally. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said he has noticed improvement in that area from Roberson, there was a learning curve. Early on we had to sit down and say, This is how you do it, and this is what you look for, Quinn said. Once you learn that skill, its always going to stay with you as a player. One of the hardest things about coming in as a rookie is how do you even learn how to prepare for a game. How do you take notes on guys? How do you even watch tape? Instead of watching the ball, Roberson is now focused on formations and learning how a receiver likes to break press coverage, preparing him to come to the meetings armed with questions. Quinn said hes been impressed with the level of competitiveness from Roberson and fellow corner Cody Riggs, particularly against Tennessee, despite some criticism for multiple pass interference penalties. Were going to play physical, he said. Were going to coach aggressive and play aggressive. Some of those penalties, if theyre bangbang plays, are going to happen. For us, were going to stay to our style of play. Rainey for Heisman: Gators running back Chris Rainey has more than 500 yards of total offense through three games. He has also blocked a punt and returned another blocked punt for a touchdown. Coach Will Muschamp thinks his performance is worthy of an entrance into the Heisman debate.Roberson learning how to prepare each week WILDCATS LEAD SEC IN PUNTING. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Kentucky coach Joker Phillips knows his team has a real challenge on its hands this weekend. Wildcats to succumb to the No. 15 Gators: Give up a blocked punt. (It) becomes hard to win games, period, when you get a punt blocked, Phillips said Wednesday. In a 24-17 loss to in-state rival Louisville last week, Kentucky surrendered one in the second quarter. While the Cardinals were unable to immediately capitalize, the the rest of the half. Kentucky, which leads the Southeastern Conference in punting (42.1 net average), doesnt want to let the same thing happen this week against a Florida team that has already blocked two punts this season. against Florida Atlantic courtesy of Solomon Patton, and the other by Chris Rainey early in the second quarter against Tennessee. The former resulted in Rainey scooping the ball and sprinting into the end zone. tion at Tennessees 13-yard line, setting up timately, they both ended in Florida wins, too. The percentages of winning the game go through the roof, Florida coach Will thing for a punt team and I dont know that weve won many games when weve Gators special teams, blocked punts key to Kentucky gameTHE JETT STREAMCharlie Weis is a miserable, miserable man. And that should make you very happy. Weis has a lot of reasons to smile. By day, he works alongside his son, a UF freshman. By night, he gets to go home to his wife and daughter. Oh, and he also gets to tinker during the day with the fastest car on the block in Chris Rainey. Still, Weis was frowning Tuesday. Im pretty disappointed, he said. Anyone who really is meticulous in their preparation at of faults in things (their team has) done. I think we can get a lot better on offense than we are right now. We can get a lot better. Florida converted just 31 per cent of third downs against the Vols (Weis: That makes me miserable). Jeff Demps fumbled the ball in the third quar ter (Not very happy about that). Florida had a chance to run out the clock with 4:46 left but went three-and-out (Not very happy about that). Floridas offense committed nine penalties (Sign me up for not being happy about that, too). Weis made a couple of bad play calls, and the Gators experienced a few mental lapses (Trust me; there are plenty of things for me to be miserable about). Actually, the Gators offense hasnt looked so miserable. Flor ida is averaging 37.7 points and 442.3 yards per game. At this point last year, the Gators were averaging 34.3 points (not too different) and 317.3 yards (much worse). Weis sounds like a curmudgeon, but you should be pumped coordinator willing to address issues. During his two-year run as the Gators play-caller, Steve Addazio came to interviews ready Stark contrast between Weis and Addazio as coordinator Tyler Jetttwitter: @tyler__jett The percentages of winning the game go through the roof.
