Alligator Contributing Writer While other universities are considering the introduction of coed dorms, UF students shouldnt hold their breath waiting for this change on their campus. As administration at the University of California at Los Angeles talks about the possible addition of genderinclusive housing, some students at UF are wondering if the same will happen here. The University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University already have gender-inclusive accommodations. UF has policies in place to address special accommodation requests from individuals on a case-by-case basis, including transgender students. However, not all students currently have the option to room with the opposite sex. If student interest in this type of housing were to increase, housing staff would gather input from involved staff, student leaders and administration to review existing policies and procedures, said Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for student affairs. However, since interest is limited, men and women will not be rooming together in undergraduate residence halls in the near future. It could take a minimum of three years to get the option of having gender-inclusive dorm rooms, Blansett said. Coed dorm rooms still years awaySTUDENT LIFE Alligator Writer Mary Reyes doesnt like spending money at Starbucks. But when the temperatures dip, the 20-year-old journalism sophomore layers her clothing, eats a bowl of tomato soup and buys a pumpkin spice or gingerbread latte. If its going to be in the 40s, I may have to give into temptation, Reyes said. Until Sunday, temperatures will dip into the low 40s and will not exceed 77 degrees, said Al Sandrick, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Jacksonville. of the semester. Lower temperatures, however, are normal for this time of year. As the weather cools down, Starbucks locations on campus see an increase in business, said Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for Gator Dining Services. Students order more hot, seasonal drinks like white mochas, peppermint mochas and chai tea lattes. Darrel Ambrosini, a 21-yearold business senior, said he spends more time and money at Starbucks when the weather is cold. I just associate the cold with hot drinks, Ambrosini said.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Alyssa Hubbell / Alligator scraps. Cano runs Gainesville Compost out of his home. ALYSSA HUBBELL Alligator Contributing Writer Waste: Its what we do every day. One local resident is doing his best to turn waste into something valuable. Turning food leftovers into topsoil, Chris Cano, a 23-year-old UF graduate, started Gainesville Compost: From Waste to Food, a business initiative that works with local restaurants to improve their sustainability. Created when organic scraps are recycled and decomposed in a controlled way, compost provides soil with nutrients that stimulate plant growth. Gardening since high school, Cano said he used to spend a lot of money on expensive organic fertilizers. He started doing research and read about compost and how people call it black gold because it is so useful. I learned that you could essentially recycle your fruit and vegetable scraps from the kitchen and turn it into a nutritious medium for your garden, he said. The current pilot program started in SeptemReggae Shack Cafe, Jones Eastside, The Bull and es to hop on board, and they are working toward the Gainesville Compost vision of having a pedalpowered community compost network. The pedal-powered compost bucket pick-up and delivery service moves away from fossil fueldependent transportation. The waste is collected from the restaurants one to three times each week, depending on the amount of scraps collected. Cano said he puts the 5-gallon buckets of waste into the trailer attached to his bicycle, pedals to his house, adds the materials to the compost and then returns the buckets. When I leave the restaurants carrying these heavy buckets, I feel good about the fact that were into something valuable, he said. As long as it is economically feasible, he said he does not plan on charging for the pick-up service. Cano believes that he and the restaurants have a As a source for income, he aims to eventually sell compost to local gardeners and community members. Another goal of Gainesville Compost, he said, is to help restaurants set up their own organic gardens that are powered by the very compost they are contributing to. will build a garden for. He described the plan for the garden as art with a food function. He said reclaimed wood will be used for the frame, beer bottles will contain the plants and beer caps will be used as decoration. night, said he likes the idea of not only having something beautiful for the community to enjoy but also having something that can actually be used. Chris is a very driven guy, he said. Hes got a lot of things on his plate but also a lot of enthusiasm. As a website developer, Cano said he was looking for a job that was more rooted in the Gainesville community. He said this small-business initiative has given him a chance to play a small part in building the local economy in a sustainable way. Every morning I wake up, and I go to my garden, and it kind of grounds me, he said. Any gardener will tell you theres nothing like eating a homegrown vegetable.

The process would involve an exploration process, writing proposals, gaining approvals and moving to new policies and procedures. Student opinion on the matter var ies. Tanya Naravane, a 21-year-old microbiology senior, said gender-inclusive dorm rooms wouldnt be a good idea. Guys and girls live differently, Naravane said. It would be awkward trying to dress, and it could cause issues. But Carlo Claudio, a 21-year-old sports management senior, believes UF students should have the option of living in gender-inclusive dorms. I think it would be awesome, Claudio said. I dont think it is a big deal or see any reason why not. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2011Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffWizarding WorldPsychology junior Ana Gutierrez, 20, donned a blond wig to become Draco Malfoy for RUBs A Trip to Hogsmeade.

Activities included a UF history presentation, a class seminar on Alzheimers disease research and a tailgate party for Saturdays football game against Auburn University. Levitt reminisced with friends he had not seen since graduation. Everyone who was there had an interesting story to tell, Levitt said.

Inductees received a medallion, a lapel Levitt was impressed with the size of the check because it shows that everybody gave something, he said. The amount shows how generous people can be, said physical education graduate Judy Ford. She took a picture with the check and sent it to her grandson in high school.

KATHLEEN BIRKHIMERAlligator Contributing Writer The Building Construction Career Fair invited students and recruiters to mingle from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Stephen C. OConnell Center. The fair has changed little since previous years, said Kim Stanley, the Rinker School of Building Constructions job placement coordinator. However, the number of recruiters that attended decreased to 43 this year from 47 last year, and Stanley said student turnout seemed lower this year, too, but she did not know exact numbers. Its the lowest number of companies weve had, but more people are hiring full time, Stanley said. [There will be] a huge job placement push in two years, and were not going to have enough students. Brian Bleakly, a recruiter from The Shaw Group, also spoke positively about the future of the construction industry.

Comedy Zone is bringing May to the University Auditorium before he does a three-day perfor mance in Jacksonville. Tickets to the show cost $29. They can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. season of The Last Comic Standing. He has also had various specials on Comedy Central, such as Ralphie May: Prime Cut and Ralphie May: Girth of a Nation. His comic style crosses social, ethnic and cultural barriers, according to Comedy Zone. Gainesville is the perfect mar ket for Ralphie, said Fred Pozin, the owner of Comedy Zone. May has performed in Jacksonville and at other universities, such as the University of Central Florida. This dian Comedy Zone brings to Gainesville, but Pozin said he wont be the last. The university is hungering for more comics, Pozin said. Pozin has been in the comedy business for more than 20 years, but Gainesville is a new market for him. Pozins son, business administration sophomore Noah Pozin, 19, is a brother of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, which helped publicize the event. The Comedy Zone is using May as a springboard for other highquality comics it hopes to bring to Gainesville. The intention is to see how this event goes and bring other big names to the university, Noah Pozin said.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 ISRAELI SOLDIER GILAD SHALIT WAS RELEASED FIVE YEARS AFTER HIS CAPTURE. CLAIRE MILLERAlligator Contributing Writer Songs and cheers could be heard Tuesday night from outside of UF Hillel on University Avenue. About 30 people gathered to celebrate the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, smiling and crying just like Israelis in Mitzpe Hila in the northern Galilee in Israel. by Hamas, a U.S. State Departmentlisted terrorist organization, while patrolling the border of Gaza. His tank was ambushed, and two of his comrades were killed. He was incarcerated, malnourished and had no contact with the outside world aside from the few interviews he was forced to videotape in Arabic. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced last week that there would be a swap: More than 1,000 Palestinian Hamas prisoners, most of whom had been convicted on trials of terrorist plots, would be traded for one Israeli soldier. Tel Nof air base. Josh Kahn, Jewish Agency Israel programming director at UF, said the return was an opportunity for the community to join and rejoice in Shalits freedom. In Israel, there is this social contract between mothers and the army, Kahn said. The deal is, we send our kids to you, and you have to bring them back. Kahn was a sergeant from 2007 to 2009 in Infantry Nahal, 50th Airborne Battalion. Frederick Rosenbluth, a Jewish studies and family, youth and community sciences junior, said Shalit is a hero.

How can we be so ethnocentric and judge the actions of another culture based on our own moral prejudices? The 18 people in China that walked by the injured 2-year-old girl Yue Yue, lying in the middle of a street after being run over by two vans, are all morally reprehensible. Their cultural identity doesnt matter. We understand that accidents happen. The two drivers of the van should certainly be held responsible for running over the poor girl. But their actions pale in comparison to the disgusting behavior of those who walked right past her. The surveillance footage captured a man on a bike who, after noticing the girl, slowed down and looked, then continued on his way. An atrocity like this would never happen in the U.S. There are countless stories of bystanders lifting burning cars off of people involved in accidents. Sure, we cannot expect that one person has the ability to lift a bus, but if a girl is lying in the street, no one would pass by her without trying to call for help. We have no background in anthropology, sociology or psychology, so it is hard for us to make assumptions about why this happened. We can, however, judge this situation as being downright evil on the part of the bystanders. But how can we explain the why? We are often taught that eastern cultures tend to be more collectivist than in western countries. So why did it take the 19 people to see the girl before someone called for help? To be clear, we arent saying that Chinese people are inher ently evil or that they are worse than Americans. However, there is something wrong with the individuals who were caught on tape walking by Yue Yue. Blaming this incident on Chinas economic boom or some sort of newfound opportunism or materialism in which all morality is suddenly lost seems too simplistic of an explanation. There has to be more to it than this. Were people afraid to help her? Were they afraid they would be framed for hurting her, given the surveillance cameras in the area? individuals they sought to help. Let us hope that Yue Yue, who is currently in a coma, will make it through this terrible situation. Let us also hope that she will never have to see this sort of behavior in her community again. Quitting can sometimes be a good thingFrom as early as we can remember, we are told, Quitters never win. Winners never quit. The phrase, as cliche as it is, has been ramrodded into the American psyche because of our history of tenacity and vigilance. Is that really true? Think about it. Is there ever a point in our lives when it is okay to give up or throw in the towel? Americans need to learn to be better quitters. However, that is not to say people should forgo their labors and investments when everything goes south. Persistence should be heralded as a virtue. It paves the way for innovation and progress, but eventually, some pur suits should be left by the curb with the rest of the trash. As any musician would tell you about tempo, quitting is all about the perfect timing. Economists refer to the investment and time spent on a particular project, whatever that may be, as the sunk cost. This concept also goes hand in hand with opportunity been received if you had chosen alternative ventures other than those pet projects to which you have been devoting your entire life to. Businesses do this when they try to develop new techvelop hundreds of ideas but use only two if they are lucky. Great businesses know when to cut and run. Why would you spend all of your energy and time on something that will not work out. To be candid, I am the biggest quitter I know. If I do not like something or, if after a while, I decide that crunching a bunch of numbers is not for me, I drop it faster than if my Growing up playing baseball taught me how much I do not have patience for being unproductive. Baseball is slow way. Unfortunately, my mother would not let me quit until I reached the age of 14, which I did not appreciate because my oncenaive love of sports had long since been six feet under. In a tournament, the coach benched me and my brother. We that was the extent of our play time. It embarrassed me. I was being forced to play baseball, which consisted of me being forced to watch other kids play baseball. I did not understand the reason I was here to learn persistence or work ethic? My brother and I quit the next day. Thankfully, an understanding and loving mother let that happen. She spear headed the move. I could not have been happier. My brother reciprocated the feeling. No more wasted afternoons of playing catch ing matters like defeating Bowser in World 8 for the 11th time. In all seriousness, it is as necessary to know when to stick something out as it is to just drop the ball and walk away. Our lives are not only constructed by the things we do, but also by the things we do not choose to pursue. Students are coerced by outside sources to pursue goals and majors that do not personally resonate with them. It is okay to quit. In fact, I encourage you to quit, especially those freshmen who are in the weed-out classes. Move on. Quitting should not be looked down upon as a sign of failure or shame. Quitting can sometimes open up opportunities you might have otherwise never had. After all, the late Steve Jobs was a quitter. Nicholas Butler is a journalism sophomore at UF.

Student Body President Anthony Reynolds said renovating and expanding the building would be phenomenal, and he asked Treasurer T.J. Villamil to explain the project to the Senate. UFs Local Fee Committee recommended last Wednesday that the Reitz Union be renovated and expanded. The project would be funded by leftover student-fee money, fees that students already pay and outside funding. Villamil said the renovation and expansion would not require extra student fees. The committee has recently raised fees by 5 percent yearly, a practice Villamil said will continue. Villamil said after the meeting that the idea has garnered support from students and student organizations, especially if students dont pay an extra fee. nancing of the project to senators. J.

The expansion would likely include lounge and study areas, and more space for student organizations. This is not something that one party really supports, he said. District C Senator Carly Wilson said some areas of the Reitz Union need to be changed, but she said the yearly 5 percent fee increase doesnt need to happen. Wilson suggested re-examining the SG budget, where she said funding could be found. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2011Rebecca Barnes / AlligatorStudent Body Treasurer T.J.

A collaboration between Spain and UF initiated research in small-satellite technology Friday in Madrid. Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Car roll and Spains Minister of Science and Innovation, Cristina Garmendia, signed a letter of understanding on Friday, according to a Space Florida news release. The collaboration is to initiate technological development for agriculture in food and the aging population. [The satellites] have the potential to enable rapid turnaround and low-cost experiments in space, said Eric Ford, 33, an associate professor in astronomy. Spain has been building its own small satellites for years but had to launch from Russia and France due to lack of launching resources. Kennedy Space Center will help integrate UFs experimental satellites with Spains satellites, according to an agreement signed in September. In an effort to cut costs, satellites will be attached to larger spacecraft sent by entities like the Defense Department. as soon as February 2012, said astronomy department Chair man Rafael Guzman in a news release. He was in Spain over the weekend and could not be reached for comment due to his travel schedule.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Sturgis HonoredFlorida place kicker Caleb Sturgis was named to the CBSSports.com Midseason All-America Team on Tuesday. Sturgis leads the nation with TYLER JETTThough he remains hopeful that John Brantley will be ready for the Georgia game Oct. 29, coach Will Muschamp said Tuesday that Floridas starting quarterback will not practice this week. Brantley, who suffered a sprained ankle Oct. 1 against Alabama, has not practiced since the injury occurred. He was on the sidelines in a walking boot this past weekend, when Florida played Auburn. Brantley will throw this week, but Muschamp said the redshirt senior wont be ready until his side-to-side movement improves an action that puts stress on the ankle. Hes living in the training room, Muschamp said. Hes doing everything he can do to get back. Its been very frustrating for him and us. Asked whether Brantley would be allowed to play if still limited, Muschamp said that decision would be between the quarterback and the trainer, Anthony Pass. This week, freshmen Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will split repetitions. Brissett terback against Auburn, and Driskel took snaps in the second. Neither was effective, as the Gators managed just 128 passing yards. Earmuffs: Muschamp apologized Tuesday for using profanity on the sidelines Satur day. After running back Chris Rainey muffed a punt in the Muschamp could be heard on ESPN ripping the referees. The blog sportsgrid.com posted a video of Muschamps minutes after it happened Saturday night, and the clip has since gone viral. After calling for a fair catch, Rainey bobbled the ball, and Auburn recovered. As Rainey Tigers player ran close by, and after the play Rainey signaled to the refs that he thought kickcatch interference should have been called. Muschamp also argued with the refs, and he continued to berate them after calling a timeout. The coach came to Gainesville with the nickname Coach Boom, a label he earned because of his dramatic sideline demeanor at Texas and Auburn. Muschamp has Guard Jaterra Bonds played a season, making the Freshman AllSee Story, Page 16. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida starting quarterback John Brantley was still wearing a walking boot Saturday, but coach Will Muschamp said he hopes Brantley will return to practice next week. JOHN BOOTHELast season, Mike Rosario went from being the leading scorer on a Big East team to a practice player. After transferring from Rutgers in April 2010, Rosario was forced to spend games biding his time on UFs bench. When the Gators needed a big shot, he could only be a cheerleader. In just more than two weeks, Rosario will have a chance to change that role. Following a year in limbo, hes looking for a step forward in his playing career, not another setback. It feels like I have waited a decade, two, three decades to play, said Rosario, a redshirt junior. Thats how long it felt. But Im excited, and its here. Its time, and all of that hard work I did through that whole year I had to sit out, its going to pay off now. Last year was a humbling experience for a sharpshooter who scored a team-best 16.7 points per game his last season with the Scarlet Knights. Rosario was the American and just the second sophomore in Rutgers history to reach 1,000 points. He couldve got mad or frustrated by sitting out, but he was always cheering us on, junior guard Kenny Boynton said. And in practice, he worked hard and he pushed us. Before coming to Florida, the 6-foot-3 Rosario, who can play both guard positions, said he had never gone more than two weeks in his career without playing an actual game. Thats not to say he still didnt get a workout on the sideline Rosario more than ready after redshirting Brantley not practicing, status for UGA uncertainGuard-heavy Gators must go back to roots After an 8-year period of mostly grindit-out play, the 2011-12 Florida basreturn of Billy Ball. With three vaunted frontcourt seniors heading out and two more talented guards coming in, the Gators are going to have to every inch of the 94-foot court. Because we have speed and quickness in the backcourt, we really need to try and court defensive team, coach Billy Donovan said. To the naked eye, that style may have always been there. But a look at the numbers shows otherwise. Since 2002-03, only one Florida team has ranked in the top 45 percent of the country in tempo rating a metric that estimates a teams playing speed by calculating possessions per minute Even that group, which won the 2005-06 national championship, had just a 67.9 rating, placing it near the middle of the pack in Division I. And the Gators only slowed things down from there. That trend reached its lowest point last season, when Floridas 64.1 tempo rating was 290th of 345 Division I teams, according to Kenpom.com. With Floridas best attack options on the interior, the Gators all but abandoned the run-and-gun style. Rather than jacking threes in transition, UF let Vernon Macklin set up on the blocks for his patented hook shot. That was all well and good, but Macklin and Co. are gone.

been criticized at times this season for the same antics, though he made it clear Tuesday he does not plan to change. Its hard when you got a 6-yearold and a 10-year-old at home, he said. You got to go home and explain to them what you said. As far as the sideline stuff is concerned, were going to be who we are. Im just apologizing for the language. Nothing else. Injuries: Cornerback Jeremy Brown (sprained knee) will take reps in practice this week, Muschamp said. Brown training camp in August. The coach also said running back Jeff Demps (left ankle), wide receiver Andre Debose (leg), running back Mike Gillislee gis (strained leg) and guard Dan Wenger (lower leg) will practice this week. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org during the Gators Elite Eight run. There was times where I was so lie: so sweaty from jumping around, but I knew it was for the better and it was to help my team. Like former UF center Vernon Mackfelt the toughest part of the season was when conference play started. He would look at the scouting reports, eat the pregame meal and watch his teammates get pumped before tipoff, but he wasnt a part of the action. WorkOh, man, I wanted to grab a uniform so bad sometimes, he said. another obstacle placed between him and the court: a disc problem in his lower back. The injury caused numbness said he is feeling much better after treatment. back injury wont require surgery, and he doesnt think it will affect his playing time this year. Because he understands his back, I dont see Mike just dealing with the pain and not saying anything, Donovan said. I think he understands in order for him to get treated that its only going to get worse if he does that. As the only player other than Erving Walker entering his fourth year of colbring leadership to the team. He also didnt place as much emphasis on scor ing this summer; instead, he tried to improve as a defender. made strides later in the weekend and should contribute immediately for Flor ida. I think Im too excited, actually, cause Im so hyped to get out there and play. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org.

Wilbekin and Boynton, perhaps the teams two best defenders, said they would like to see that shift. Well be a trap team, Boynton said. Were going to press and were going to run. I like that. it sounds good to me. Prather, who ranks next to Boynton and Wilbekin in discussions of defensive ability, said the press would be a good way to use his athleticism.

BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer For Floridas volleyball team, theres something about third sets. The question of exactly why the third frame has been so kind to the Gators in 2011 can garner mixed reactions. Im not really sure why we do it, to be honest, redshirt freshman libero Taylor Unroe said. What shes referring to is a sense of dominance the Gators have carried in three sets for much of this season. In 18 matches, Florida has lost the third set just twice once in an eventual 3-1 win against Kentucky on Sept. loss to No. 20 Tennessee. No. 13 Florida (15-3, 8-1 Southeastern Conference) will try to keep that success going tonight at 8 as it takes on South Carolina (10-9, 1-8 SEC) in an away game that will be televised live on ESPNU. No matter how much preparation we do prior to a match showing the players video and all theres nothing like when youre on the court and you get into a rhythm, coach Mary Wise said. Third-set success has been most apparent for Florida in its last three victories, helping to extend the teams current six-match winning streak. Against LSU, Ole Miss and Alabama, Florida out-hit its opponents .403 to minus-.073 in the third set. The Gators have won the three sets by a total of 43 points. While the offense has certainly played a role, a large part of the credit goes to the backcourt play of Unroe. In the past three games, Unroe has recorded 43 digs. She picked up 21 in the three games before that. All six matches were straight-set victories. The numbers say it, Wise said. What we see in Taylor is execution, but also I think theres a different mindset. After Unroe put an emphasis on raising her dig numbers a couple of weeks ago, Floridas libero said she is pleased at her latest numbers but tends to be more critical when looking at herself. Its good to see numbers go up, but theres still a lot more learning and improving I can do, she said. Aside from Unroes play, Wise and players alike lean toward Floridas combination of senior leadership and youth as to why third sets seem to be the Gators time for easy wins. Wise expects players to make approprithe match. Players with high volleyball IQ should be that way, Wise said. When youve got young players, youre just hoping theyre in the right position. But according to Unroe, the biggest key to third-set success might simply be the Gators recent penchant for quick wins. We feel like we have nothing to lose since were up 2-0, she said. Thats a big comfort zone for us. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2011 Be a part of something BIG GIVE B LOOD.Over 1,000 people gathered to form one of the largest human blood drop Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffAfter putting extra emphasis on digging the past two weeks, libero Taylor Unroe has recorded 43 digs in the Gators last three games all UF straight-set wins.
