CLAIRE MILLER Alligator Contributing Writer Spencer Pylant remembers watching the NBA championship game in 2006. The Miami Heat had won four out of six games against the Dallas Mavericks. He remembers Shaquille ONeals drive and push. Its amazing the way he smashes and drives toward the basket, said Pylant, 23, a second-year management graduate student. He does whatever it takes to get the ball in the hoop. ONeal is an actor, media personality and rapper. He is pursuing his Ph.D. at Barry University and has served as a reserve officer in Los Angeles and Miami Beach. Hes also a famous basketball player. Tonight at 8, ONeal will speak to students and the public in a moderated conversation at the OConnell Center. Admission is free. Accent Speakers Bureau is paying him $70,000 to speak. Were bringing him because he is not only a sports icon but a [NBA] legend, said Corey Portnoy, Accent chairman and a political science senior. ONeal will talk about his sports career, what its like to be Shaq, his entertainment career and life after 19 years in the NBA. He was a member of four NBA championship teams, and he was voted NBA Most Valuable Player in 2000 and NBA Rookie of the Year in 1993. In July, he signed a contract to be an NBA analyst on TNT. A lot of students are fans of his, Portnoy said. So many students from UF are from the Miami area, and he played for the Heat. Portnoy expects about 3,000 people to attend. Accent brings Shaq to speak at OConnell Center tonightSTUDENT LIFE CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer The Gator Nation has proved, once again, that it likes to be on top. In the 2011 Trojan Sexual Health Report Card, UF ranked No. 8 in sexual health resources out of 141 surveyed U.S. schools. Last year, UF came in at No. 17. The ranking methods are close to students actual perceptions, said Bert Sperling, owner of Sperlings BestPlaces, which conducted the research. Schools were graded on services in 13 categories including convenience and availability of health centers, condom and contraceptive availabilities, HIV or STI testing, outreach programs, website usability and sexual assault resources. Sperling, who has done the research for all six of the annual report cards, said student health centers also receive project. GatorWell Health Promotion Specialist Samantha Evans said she is aware of the rankings but has never been contacted. Evans said GatorWell offers a wide variety of sexual-health education.

Im not asking for your pity or your understanding. I just think that journalists can be, simultaneously, both the most and least caring people in the world. Im sure by now youve at least heard about the Occupy Wall Street movement, right? What started as a gathering of protesters in Manhattan become fed up with the fact that the richest 1 percent of the world makes the decisions for the rest of us. It doesnt matter whether you agree with their position. Its okay to disagree in this country; thats kind of the point of the First Amendment to our Constitution. It took days for the mainstream media to even begin mentioning the protests. Major networks decided not to talk about it right away. talking about it, some of them did so with an incredible bias toward the movement in general. A right-wing opinion columnist for Fox News called the protests a liberal whinefest. But bias is not the point. The point should instead be focusing on the wholly grassroots, homemade, global movement that OWS repwallst.org, the protest has reached about 1,500 cities across the world. I dont believe it can be written off as a group of liberal whiners at this point. Grassroots movements are sometimes the only way stuff gets done. There seems to be a small disconnect between what the people want and what our representatives view as important. OWS may be criticized for not protestthe values that are highly regarded in todays society. Interested in getting involved locally? Go down to Bo Diddley Community Plaza and join the local faction of OWS supporters in the Occupy Gainesville movement. To my knowledge, there hasnt been any violence instigated by the protesters. If there are large groups of people speaking out against something, there are bound to be police. Would you rather see #occupymybed trending on Twitter instead? Fine, point taken. Perhaps the movement should be ignored or not touted as much. I get it. We have other stuff to worry about. For instance, how cold it is all of a sudden am I right? There are a ton of other grassroots movements for you to consider. Theres a UF-based division of the ONE Campaign, which is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning disease, particularly in Africa, according to one.org. That sounds pretty noble, right? You can join ONE at University of Florida to stay on top of what events are available to participate in. This week, the club invites us all to try living on less than $1.50 a day. Nearly 1 billion people around the world live on $1.50 a day, and for a week, we are challenging organizations at UF to do the same. Can you join the ONE CAMPAIGN, and live on $1.50 a day? asks the Facebook event. Some of those in the OWS movement are probably already doing this out of necessity or out of solidarity. Citizens and journalists could stand to learn from their empathy and example. Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.Pride-ful PrioritiesOpponents have bigger problems to deal withThis weekend, Bo Diddley Community Plaza in downtown Gainesville was host to the Pride Festival. out an annual LGBTQ pride festival or parade. jority of respondents (53 percent) believed that same-sex mar riage should be legal. The only age group that did not have majority support of legal protections for same-sex marriage were those 55 and older. Still, this groups support increased by six percentage points from the previous year. This year, the military policy banning homosexuals from openly serving in the military, referred to as Dont Ask, Dont Lately, when opinion polls ask about which issues are most important to Americans, policies toward gays and lesbians, family or marriage issues make up only one to two percent of those on the list. All of these events are evidence that there is a sweeping change occurring among Americans. Issues such as the lack of jobs, the economy and war are foremost in Americans minds while social issues just dont matter. These tough times are probably making people realize that how other people choose to live their lives really does not affect them. People also seem to be realizing that there is a problem with marriage equality in this country. These trends can even be seen in the most unlikely places. Rick Santorum, the most outspoken Republican presidential candidate against the issue of same-sex marriage and the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell, is at the bottom of the polls for the 2012 race. In every debate, he tries to bring up the issue of family and traditional values, but it obviously is not playing well with GOP voters. In the last debate, when asked how the GOP would appeal to Latino voters, most candidates brought up the issue of illegal immigration security and reform. Not Santorum. For Santorum, attracting Latino voters meant appealing to their understanding that the foundation of America is not the individual, as Congressman Ron Paul suggested. Instead, the building block of our society is the family and faith. If this were the case, one would assume Santorums message of traditional family values (code for not same-sex mar riage) would be playing better with GOP voters. Instead, conservatives, like all Americans, want a candidate to behave in the bedroom or whom we can marry. Lets hope these winds of change continue to blow us in the right direction.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Its exceedingly important for an expectant mother to know if the child she is carrying will inherit genetic abnormalities. Raising a child with a serious genetic defect As a woman who intends to be a parent someday, I would certainly like to have any and all possible knowledge about my childs genetic future. I would want to ensure that I could accommodate and provide for them to the best of my ability. And if my abilities were to be found lacking, I would not want to bring a child into the world who I could not support in every way possible. But a new genetic test that detects Down syndrome has raised some eyebrows. This procedure is less invasive than traditional amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (both of which carry a small risk of miscarriage), by simply taking blood from the mother rather than cells directly from the fetus. It is a far easier procedure and, from the looks of it, a highly accurate one as well, identifying 98.6 percent of the Down syndrome cases in preliminary testing. Down syndrome, in its most common form, is caused by a mutation of chromosomes 21 and 22, causing three copies of chromosome 21 to be formed rather than the normal two copies. This change in chromosomal makeup can lead to limitations in mental and social development as well as a host of other medical issues, including heart problems, eye problems and compression injury of the spinal cord, to name a few. While a great deal of those diagnosed with Down syndrome go on it cannot be said that their childhood or adult life is without complications. With a new, less-invasive test soon to be available to pregnant women, there is a concern among some groups that this sort of early genetic testing could encourage more people to end their pregnancies. This is possible. Women who discover they are carrying a child with Down syndrome could choose to terminate the pregnancy. Whether or not that is an ethical decision is another column in and of itself. But it is also possible that women who discover they are carrying a Down syndrome child could use this information to get the proper prenatal care, work on providing care and support for the childs early years and learn more about the syndrome. The more knowledge you have about how to provide for a child, the better off that child will be. Similarly, the more you know, the more you can assess if you personally are capable of providing the care a child with a disorder like Down syndrome will need. I fully believe in the ability of a woman to assess her own circumstances, personality and life and to responsibly determine what to do with the information gained from a genetic test such as this. I dont see this new test as being something to fear when it comes to women terminating their pregnancies. I see it as something that will allow women to make the most informed decision possible about their pregnancies. Claire Vriezen is a columnist for the Iowa State Daily at Iowa State University.Detecting Down syndrome early will help pregnant women prepareUWireClaire VriezenUWire The eurozone crisis has played out like a slow-moving Greek tragedy. The European political elites who created the euro in the 1990s were warned of problems inherent in their plans, but they ignored these warnings. Once the problems came to a head, European politicians dealt with each new problem in a haphazard way that temporar ily postponed the worst but was not enough to end the overall crisis. Unless this approach changes, the outcome could be disastrous for the world. The United States should intervene in hopes of precluding this dire possibility. The current crisis is largely the result of two cial, the other relating to exchange rates. The latter problem is rather straightfor ward. Prices and wages in peripheral countries like Greece and Spain are high relative to prices and wages in core countries like Germany. As a result, countries like Germany are running large trade surpluses compared to countries like Greece, which is part of the reason that the economic downturn has been far more severe in countries like Spain than countries like Germany. If Spain and Greece had different currencies than Germany and their exchange rates Spain and Greeces currencies would fall in value relative to the German currency. This would then increase demand for Spanish and Greek goods, thereby increasing employment in Spain and Greece. However, the existence of the single currency precludes the possibility of devaluation. Peripheral countries like Spain and Greece will probably suffer several more complicated. When you deposit a dollar at the bank, the bank promises to give you that dollar on demand, but the bank does not actually keep that dollar in its safe. Instead, the bank only keeps a few cents on hand and lends the rest out. Your deposit at your bank is nothing more than an IOU. The reason that you consider a bank deposit to be worth as much as the money in your wallet is because the federal government guarantees your deposit. Since the federal government controls the supply of dollars, there is no question about its ability to guarantee bank deposits. In countries that use the euro this is not the case. The Irish government guarantees Irish bank deposits, but it does not have control over its own currency. Today, many Irish depositors reasonably wonder whether the Irish government will be able to repay its own debts. If it cannot do so, it will not be able to repay Irish banks debts either. As a result, banks in countries like Ireland and Greece have been experiencing a slow-motion bank run. These countries citizens have realized that a bank deposit that is guaranteed by the Greek or Irish government simply is not worth as much as a bank deposit that is guaranteed by the German government. Thus, Greek and Irish citizens have been withdrawing their domestic money and depositing it in other European countries instead. Given that Greece is insolvent and several other countries will need the backing of their stronger peers in order to avoid contagion, the an orderly fashion, and countries like Germany are going to have to put up a lot more money in order to guarantee the debts of countries like Spain and Italy. crisis would wreak havoc not only in Europe but also probably here in the United States. Perhaps, in a gesture of support, the U.S. federal government should offer to put up some of the money necessary to guarantee European sovereign debt, with the intention of helping offer the monetary amount truly needed to prevent the crisis from spreading. Would it be unfair for American taxpayers to partly be on the hook for a crisis almost entirely of the European political elites making? Yes, but the alternative is quite possibly far worse.

That wasnt Brantleys fault. He never proclaimed himself the King of the South, never asked to wear the crown. At media day before last season, he said he was, Just a regular guy from Ocala. Thats right, Ocala. Still, expectations were cranked up by opening day. Brantley wasnt supposed to just per form; he was supposed to change the way Florida played football. Last season was a case study in preseason hype gone haywire. More than anything, the universitys propaganda machine is to blame. Practices were closed. Nobody saw what the quarterback could actually do. Instead, we heard about Brantley from his teammates and coaches. What were they going to say? Of course they hyped him. Of course they said his passes were perfect, his approach cerebral. And of course everyone ate it up in August. Newspapers needed Crown him. Fast forward to last spring. Fans said Brantley was terrible, said that kid Driskel was going to unseat him with a big arm and some quick feet. Then, the hype machine started cranking. Again. This was different. This was a pro-style ofcurate, comfortable. Now, us outsiders were going to see the real John Brantley, a gunslinger. Crown him. He went 4 of 14 in the spring game, and everyone scratched their heads. How could this be? Of course, that was the offensive lines fault too many were injured. And that was a legitimate excuse; Brantley was chased all afternoon. Then came fall camp. Brantley was in control, and he was playing toward redemption. Crown him. Now, Florida is preparing for its eighth game of the season. Now, Brantley will save them. And, of course, that is partially true. The Gators need a veteran quarterback; anyone who watched the last three games knows that. But dont force Brantley to carry that cross. Before the Alabama game, nobody knew how he would handle a legitimate SEC defense. Then, he passed for 190 yards in one half. Apparently, those 30 minutes proved enough. Crown him, I guess. ALLIGATOR, 13 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Despite loss, Embree to play in ITA nationalsThe Georgia senior and tournaments No. 4 seed also used both corners of the court to her advantage, knocking Embree out of contention by immediately putting her on defense. Although Embree came close to forcing Gullickson to three sets multiple times, Thornqvist said Floridas limited match experience so far this season eventually led to Embrees downfall. in the past, but she did play a lot of matches and that really will help her, Thornqvist said. Going into today I dont know if I saw that mental strength really from the beginning that were used to from her. I think perhaps she was anticipating a tough match before she even stepped out there. While Embree didnt qualify for the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships as the Southeasts regional champion, she will be on her way to Flushing, N.Y., next week regardless. the championships singles draw. Her play earlier this into the doubles bracket. We should be encouraged because this weekend will help her, no question in mind, Thornqvist said. It will give us some tougher skin, and we lost to a great player [Monday], so theres really not a whole lot to hang our heads (about). TENNIsS, from page 14 TYlLER, from page 14Browns knee not responding to treatment Thursday, Muschamp said. Whether Powell returns to the Gators starting lineup remains to be seen. For much of the season, Powells lack of production at his position considered a key role in Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinns scheme has been disconcerting to coaches. Powell is tied for 14th on the team with 14 total tackles, including two sacks, while registering just three quar terback hurries in six games this season. Senior William Green started in Powells place against Auburn, and Muschamp said Monday that whoever practices the best this week will start against Georgia. Injuries: Muschamp said cornerback Jeremy Brown miss Saturdays game. Brown has been sidelined all season after suffering a sprained knee during training camp. He just continues not to respond to treatment, Muschamp said. We have to continue to press through with that and were disappointed for him. Muschamp expects everyone else on the roster to be available this weekend, including guard Dan Wenger, wide receiver Andre Debose, running back Mike Gillislee and kicker Caleb Sturgis, who were all injured during Floridas loss to Auburn.

Guards Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker were voted to the All-SEC Second Team.Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Will Muschamp said quarterback John Brantley is probable for Saturdays game against TOM GREEN Alligator Staff Writer Floridas offense could get a much-needed boost Saturday against Georgia. Redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley, who has been sidelined since Oct. 1 with a right ankle injury, is probable for this weekends game in Jacksonville, coach Will Muschamp said Monday. We feel like John will be ready to go for the game, Muschamp said. As we progress through the week we will know more about his status. Muschamp has been pleased with Brantleys rehab so far and said the quarterback would return to practice time since suffering the injury late in Although Muschamp remains optimistic that Brantley will play this weekend, freshmen Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will still take reps While Brantley did not practice last week, Muschamp said the quarterback threw the ball and also worked on dropbacks to test the ankles health and see how it would respond to stress. Prior to the injury, Brantley was playing the best football of his career. He completed 66 of 102 passes for he was fourth in the Southeastern Conference in both passing yards per (152.6). But since Brantley has been out, the Gators offense has sputtered. Florida has found the end zone just once in the last 10 quarters while running a dropping three straight games. Brissett and Driskel have combined to go just 24-of-48 passing for 228 yards, three interceptions and one touchdown since Brantleys injury. Certainly, getting him back is going to be a huge psychological shock for our football team I really believe that, Muschamp said. There is no question that he certainly gives us a psychological boost for our football team, on offense and defense, too, because that affects how the defense plays at times. Powell back: After missing the Auburn game with an undisclosed injury suffered against LSU, linebacker Brantley probable to return against Georgia on Saturday John Brantley must feel comfortable wearing that crown by now. On Saturday, when Brantley is expected to make his triumphant return against Georgia, he will Nation: your quarterback, your leader, your savior. But he shouldnt carry that burden. Expectations shouldnt be this high. He has played one half against a good team this season, yet fans and pundits consider him one of the best players in the Southeastern Conference. Crown him. Brantley will shoulder that responsibility come Saturday, because he always has, because he has never had another choice. From the day he signed with Florida in 2007, Brantley has been the Gators future. Never mind that some elite recruits simply dont pan out. Brantley was going perfectly. Before Tebow even left, before Brantley even took a meaningful snap, Floridas backup was the experts. Crown him. Then, he actually started playing games. Fans wanted to bury him. He was no Tebow, no Rex Grossman or Danny Wuerffel or Chris Leak. He was just just average. Brantley to face familiar, undue expectations in return from injury MEGAN WALSH Alligator Writer Junior Lauren Embree may have squared off against a familiar face Monday at the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Championas typical. Top-seeded Embree was crowned runner-up at the Ring Tennis Complex after dropping a straight-set match 2-6, 5-7 to Georgias Chelsey Gullickson. In the past, the Gators have targeted Gullickson, the 2010 NCAA singles champion, by forcing her out of her comfort zone, especially with over-the-shoulder balls. But her composed play against Embree showed that Gullickson is now aware of Floridas strategy. Weve played (Gullickson) before many times and weve always been able to get her out of her ball tolerance by making her hit enough balls to where she wears down, but I thought she was very sharp, UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. She handled balls over her shoulder better over the long haul this weekend than I think Ive seen from her ever.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer Florida had a talented forward receiving too few minutes and lacked depth on defense. Coach Becky Burleigh solved both problems with one decision: move freshman Tessa Andujar to outside back. Prior to No. 13 Floridas game against ArConversely, UFs starting outside backs, Maggie Rodgers and Jazmyne Avant, have ence play began. Avant has played at least 90 pitch for the entirety of three games. UFs outside backs are asked to make runs deep into the attacking third but are also asked to get back on defense when possession changes. They run 6 to 8 miles per game. Having some extra depth in that position is certainly a plus for us, Burleigh said. To increase her options along the back line, Burleigh switched Andujar to outside back, where she started in place of Rodgers the last two games. Andujars ball-attacking skills made her a good candidate to make the transition. Even when she plays offense, shes tenaciously after the ball all the time, Burleigh said. Rodgers made a similar transition from offense to outside back in the offseason, but Andujars switch has given Burleigh the option of also playing Rodgers at less taxing positions day in addition to playing outside back. Maggie is a pretty versatile player, Burleigh said. The defense responded well, allowing just four shots on goal during the last two games. Andujars move to outside back gives Gators more options UF Soccer Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 THE JUNIOR FORWARD AVERAGED 5.6 REBOUNDS AND 1.3 BLOCKS PER GAME LAST YEAR. JOE MORGANAlligator WriterSometimes, Jennifer George needs a slap to the face. Florida wants to get the most out of the 6-foot forward this season and will do whatever is necessary to reach that point. To get her balling with double-doubles, shes got to get mad, sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds said. Were going to try to get her mad before every game. While slapping George was a tactic employed once last season, Bonds said the team is looking for a less painful way to get Georges blood boiling. The Gators recent results in Southeastern Conference play are one potential motivating factor. The team-oriented George said her top priority is to win a conference championship. That being the case, she has reasonable cause to be upset. Florida has racked up a 14-18 conference record, sons. SEC futility has provided George with the necessary anger, as coach Amanda Butler has noticed an increased intensity from George this offseason. Senior guard Jordan Jones also recognized Georges drive, noting the junior forwards maturation and her willingness to take on more responsibility. She cant sit back and be a role player this year, Jones said. (Becoming) a double-double player is what we expect out of her. George played in every game during the 201011 season, starting six contests and ranking second on the team with 5.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. Both marks trailed only one player: senior center Azania Stewart, who grabbed 6.1 boards and swatted 1.8 shots per game. [George] just wants to be a changing factor, a dominant force, Stewart said. She has that potential, because shes the strongest on our team. Stewart marvels at Georges ability in the weight room, calling her work with 65-pound dumb bells crazy. According to Jones, strength and conditioning coordinator Rich Jacobs has referred to George as Floridas strongest player. However, Stewart admits that physical might is only half the battle, saying George needs to mentally grasp her role to become unstoppable. The biggest jump for her last year to this year was just owning how talented she is, Butler said. Her teammates have always wanted her to be important, but shes kind of shied away from that spotlight. the mold of their up-tem po style, but Butler preaches the importance of a balanced attack. To achieve that balance, the spotlight shifts to the paint, where Florida expects George to play mad this season. She could be our best post player, Jones said. With how dominating she is, how athletic she is rebounding, scoring she has the complete package. Much like the Gators SEC title hopes, describing George realizing her full potential involves words like could and should. Florida hopes both prospects are on their way to is. It certainly has been something gradual and its continuing to happen I dont think shes completely all the way there, Butler said. There are more days than not where shes sure of her self and what she needs to do.Gators looking to channel Georges aggression in the post this season BRYAN HOLTAlligator WriterFloridas volleyball team is nearing the end of its most dominant month in years. nessee on Sept. 25, Florida has been the hottest team in the country, winning eight consecutive games in straight sets against Southeastern Conference competition. We can put a lot of credit to the high-octane offense that were playing, UF coach Mary Wise said. We have the rhythm between the setters and the hitters. The No. 13 Gators current run of sweeps is their best since 2009, and another straight-set victory would make it their lengthiest since 2007. During the stretch, Floridas offense has gotten even better at the areas in which it was already excelling and rounded out some other aspects that needed work. One of the great indicators in our sport is what is the hitting per centage that a team can accumulate, Wise said. Right now, ours is pretty good. Florida is hitting .353 during the winning streak, improving its conference-leading season hitting clip to .314. Tennessee is second in the SEC with a .258 mark. As of Oct. 16, Florida was second in the Three of the SECs top 10 hitting percentages belong to UF players. Junior middle blocker Betsy Smith would lead the league with a .426 clip if she averaged three attacks per set instead of 2.82. The Gators biggest concern heading into October was transitioning offense from the backcourt to the frontcourt. Young back-row players like Taylor Unroe and Madison Monserez struggled at times early in the season to make digs that led smoothly into quality sets and kills. Thats where weve really improved from the last time we played Kentucky and Tennessee, Wise said. Weve been a much better serve-reception team, so teams havent been able to get on a roll. Passing often gets over looked because hitters are judged solely on attack numbers, while people turn to dig totals to discuss defensive specialists. However, the Gators offense has been much Another positive is serving. Florida is a high-risk serving team, featuring a number of jump-serverrors to be the SECs runaway leader in service aces. The Gators have six more service aces than any other team in their conference despite playing at least 10 fewer sets than the other squads. When that is working for us, it allows us to make good runs on points, Wise said. Quality serving helps with quality blocking and that leads to what we talked about in terms of transition defense.UF offense dominant during 24-set streak UF Womens Bask etball Wise

A right-wing opinion columnist for Fox News called the protests a liberal whinefest. But bias is not the point. The point should instead be focusing on the wholly grassroots, homemade, global movement that OWS repwallst.org, the protest has reached about 1,500 cities across the world. I dont believe it can be written off as a group of liberal whiners at this point. Grassroots movements are sometimes the only way stuff gets done. There seems to be a small disconnect between what the people want and what our representatives view as important. OWS may be criticized for not protestthe values that are highly regarded in todays society. Interested in getting involved locally? Go down to Bo Diddley Community Plaza and join the local faction of OWS supporters in the Occupy Gainesville movement. To my knowledge, there hasnt been any violence instigated by the protesters. If there are large groups of people speaking out against some thing, there are bound to be police. Would you rather see #occupymybed trending on Twitter instead? Fine, point taken. Perhaps the movement should be ignored or not touted as much. I get it. We have other stuff to worry about. For instance, how cold it is all of a sudden am I right? There are a ton of other grassroots movements for you to consider. Theres a UF-based division of the ONE Campaign, which is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning disease, particularly in Africa, according to one.org. That sounds pretty noble, right? You can join ONE at Univer sity of Florida to stay on top of what events are available to participate in. This week, the club invites us all to try living on less than $1.50 a day. Nearly 1 billion people around the world live on $1.50 a day, and for a week, we are challenging organizations at UF to do the same. Can you join the ONE CAMPAIGN, and live on $1.50 a day? asks the Facebook event. Some of those in the OWS movement are probably already doing this out of necessity or out of solidarity. Citizens and journalists could stand to learn from their empathy and example. Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.Pride-ful PrioritiesOpponents have bigger problems to deal withThis weekend, Bo Diddley Community Plaza in downtown Gainesville was host to the Pride Festival. out an annual LGBTQ pride festival or parade. jority of respondents (53 percent) believed that same-sex mar riage should be legal. The only age group that did not have majority support of legal protections for same-sex marriage were those 55 and older. Still, this groups support increased by six percentage points from the previous year. This year, the military policy banning homosexuals from openly serving in the military, referred to as Dont Ask, Dont Lately, when opinion polls ask about which issues are most important to Americans, policies toward gays and lesbians, family or marriage issues make up only one to two percent of those on the list. All of these events are evidence that there is a sweeping change occurring among Americans. Issues such as the lack of jobs, the economy and war are foremost in Americans minds while social issues just dont matter. These tough times are probably making people realize that how other people choose to live their lives really does not affect them. People also seem to be realizing that there is a problem with marriage equality in this country. These trends can even be seen in the most unlikely places. Rick Santorum, the most outspoken Republican presidential candidate against the issue of same-sex marriage and the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell, is at the bottom of the polls for the 2012 race. In every debate, he tries to bring up the issue of family and traditional values, but it obviously is not playing well with GOP voters. In the last debate, when asked how the GOP would appeal to Latino voters, most candidates brought up the issue of illegal immigration security and reform. Not Santorum. For Santorum, attracting Latino voters meant appealing to their understanding that the foundation of America is not the individual, as Congressman Ron Paul suggested. Instead, the building block of our society is the family and faith. If this were the case, one would assume Santorums message of traditional family values (code for not same-sex mar riage) would be playing better with GOP voters. Instead, conservatives, like all Americans, want a candidate to behave in the bedroom or whom we can marry. Lets hope these winds of change continue to blow us in the right direction.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Its exceedingly important for an expectant mother to know if the child she is carrying will inherit genetic abnormalities. Raising a child with a serious genetic defect As a woman who intends to be a parent someday, I would certainly like to have any and all possible knowledge about my childs genetic future. I would want to ensure that I could accommodate and provide for them to the best of my ability. And if my abilities were to be found lacking, I would not want to bring a child into the world who I could not support in every way possible. But a new genetic test that detects Down syndrome has raised some eyebrows. This procedure is less invasive than traditional amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (both of which carry a small risk of miscarriage), by simply taking blood from the mother rather than cells directly from the fetus. It is a far easier procedure and, from the looks of it, a highly accurate one as well, identifying 98.6 percent of the Down syndrome cases in preliminary testing. Down syndrome, in its most common form, is caused by a mutation of chromosomes 21 and 22, causing three copies of chromosome 21 to be formed rather than the normal two copies. This change in chromosomal makeup can lead to limitations in mental and social development as well as a host of other medical issues, including heart problems, eye problems and compression injury of the spinal cord, to name a few. While a great deal of those diagnosed with Down syndrome go on it cannot be said that their childhood or adult life is without complications. With a new, less-invasive test soon to be available to pregnant women, there is a concern among some groups that this sort of early genetic testing could encourage more people to end their pregnancies. This is possible. Women who discover they are carrying a child with Down syndrome could choose to terminate the pregnancy. Whether or not that is an ethical decision is another column in and of itself. But it is also possible that women who discover they are carrying a Down syndrome child could use this information to get the proper prenatal care, work on providing care and support for the childs early years and learn more about the syndrome. The more knowledge you have about how to provide for a child, the better off that child will be. Similarly, the more you know, the more you can assess if you personally are capable of providing the care a child with a disorder like Down syndrome will need. I fully believe in the ability of a woman to assess her own circumstances, personality and life and to responsibly determine what to do with the information gained from a genetic test such as this. I dont see this new test as being something to fear when it comes to women terminating their pregnancies. I see it as something that will allow women to make the most informed decision possible about their pregnancies. Claire Vriezen is a columnist for the Iowa State Daily at Iowa State University.Detecting Down syndrome early will help pregnant women prepareUWireClaire VriezenUWire The eurozone crisis has played out like a slow-moving Greek tragedy. The European political elites who created the euro in the 1990s were warned of problems inherent in their plans, but they ignored these warnings. Once the problems came to a head, European politicians dealt with each new problem in a haphazard way that temporar ily postponed the worst but was not enough to end the overall crisis. Unless this approach changes, the outcome could be disastrous for the world. The United States should intervene in hopes of precluding this dire possibility. The current crisis is largely the result of two cial, the other relating to exchange rates. The latter problem is rather straightfor ward. Prices and wages in peripheral countries like Greece and Spain are high relative to prices and wages in core countries like Germany. As a result, countries like Germany are running large trade surpluses compared to countries like Greece, which is part of the reason that the economic downturn has been far more severe in countries like Spain than countries like Germany. If Spain and Greece had different currencies than Germany and their exchange rates Spain and Greeces currencies would fall in value relative to the German currency. This would then increase demand for Spanish and Greek goods, thereby increasing employment in Spain and Greece. However, the existence of the single currency precludes the possibility of devaluation. Peripheral countries like Spain and Greece will probably suffer several more complicated. When you deposit a dollar at the bank, the bank promises to give you that dollar on demand, but the bank does not actually keep that dollar in its safe. Instead, the bank only keeps a few cents on hand and lends the rest out. Your deposit at your bank is nothing more than an IOU. The reason that you consider a bank deposit to be worth as much as the money in your wallet is because the federal government guarantees your deposit. Since the federal government controls the supply of dollars, there is no question about its ability to guarantee bank deposits. In countries that use the euro this is not the case. The Irish government guarantees Irish bank deposits, but it does not have control over its own currency. Today, many Irish depositors reasonably wonder whether the Irish government will be able to repay its own debts. If it cannot do so, it will not be able to repay Irish banks debts either. As a result, banks in countries like Ireland and Greece have been experiencing a slow-motion bank run. These countries citizens have realized that a bank deposit that is guaranteed by the Greek or Irish government simply is not worth as much as a bank deposit that is guaranteed by the German government. Thus, Greek and Irish citizens have been withdrawing their domestic money and depositing it in other European countries instead. Given that Greece is insolvent and several other countries will need the backing of their stronger peers in order to avoid contagion, the an orderly fashion, and countries like Germany are going to have to put up a lot more money in order to guarantee the debts of countries like Spain and Italy. crisis would wreak havoc not only in Europe but also probably here in the United States. Perhaps, in a gesture of support, the U.S. federal government should offer to put up some of the money necessary to guarantee European sovereign debt, with the intention of helping offer the monetary amount truly needed to prevent the crisis from spreading. Would it be unfair for American taxpayers to partly be on the hook for a crisis almost entirely of the European political elites making? Yes, but the alternative is quite possibly far worse.

That wasnt Brantleys fault. He never proclaimed himself the King of the South, never asked to wear the crown. At media day before last season, he said he was, Just a regular guy from Ocala. Thats right, Ocala. Still, expectations were cranked up by opening day. Brantley wasnt supposed to just per form; he was supposed to change the way Florida played football. Last season was a case study in preseason hype gone haywire. More than anything, the universitys propaganda machine is to blame. Practices were closed. Nobody saw what the quarterback could actually do. Instead, we heard about Brantley from his teammates and coaches. What were they going to say? Of course they hyped him. Of course they said his passes were perfect, his approach cerebral. And of course everyone ate it up in August. Newspapers needed Crown him. Fast forward to last spring. Fans said Brantley was terrible, said that kid Driskel was going to unseat him with a big arm and some quick feet. Then, the hype machine started cranking. Again. This was different. This was a pro-style ofcurate, comfortable. Now, us outsiders were going to see the real John Brantley, a gunslinger. Crown him. He went 4 of 14 in the spring game, and everyone scratched their heads. How could this be? Of course, that was the offensive lines fault too many were injured. And that was a legitimate excuse; Brantley was chased all afternoon. Then came fall camp. Brantley was in control, and he was playing toward redemption. Crown him. Now, Florida is preparing for its eighth game of the season. Now, Brantley will save them. And, of course, that is partially true. The Gators need a veteran quarterback; anyone who watched the last three games knows that. But dont force Brantley to carry that cross. Before the Alabama game, nobody knew how he would handle a legitimate SEC defense. Then, he passed for 190 yards in one half. Apparently, those 30 minutes proved enough. Crown him, I guess. ALLIGATOR, 13 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Despite loss, Embree to play in ITA nationalsThe Georgia senior and tournaments No. 4 seed also used both corners of the court to her advantage, knocking Embree out of contention by immediately putting her on defense. Although Embree came close to forcing Gullickson to three sets multiple times, Thornqvist said Floridas limited match experience so far this season eventually led to Embrees downfall. in the past, but she did play a lot of matches and that really will help her, Thornqvist said. Going into today I dont know if I saw that mental strength really from the beginning that were used to from her. I think perhaps she was anticipating a tough match before she even stepped out there. While Embree didnt qualify for the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships as the Southeasts regional champion, she will be on her way to Flushing, N.Y., next week regardless. the championships singles draw. Her play earlier this into the doubles bracket. We should be encouraged because this weekend will help her, no question in mind, Thornqvist said. It will give us some tougher skin, and we lost to a great player [Monday], so theres really not a whole lot to hang our heads (about). TENNIS, from page 14 TYLER, from page 14Browns knee not responding to treatment Thursday, Muschamp said. Whether Powell returns to the Gators starting lineup remains to be seen. For much of the season, Powells lack of production at his position considered a key role in Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinns scheme has been disconcerting to coaches. Powell is tied for 14th on the team with 14 total tackles, including two sacks, while registering just three quar terback hurries in six games this season. Senior William Green started in Powells place against Auburn, and Muschamp said Monday that whoever practices the best this week will start against Georgia. Injuries: Muschamp said cornerback Jeremy Brown miss Saturdays game. Brown has been sidelined all season after suffering a sprained knee during training camp. He just continues not to respond to treatment, Muschamp said. We have to continue to press through with that and were disappointed for him. Muschamp expects everyone else on the roster to be available this weekend, including guard Dan Wenger, wide receiver Andre Debose, running back Mike Gillislee and kicker Caleb Sturgis, who were all injured during Floridas loss to Auburn.

Guards Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker were voted to the All-SEC Second Team.Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Will Muschamp said quarterback John Brantley is probable for Saturdays game against TOM GREEN Alligator Staff Writer Floridas offense could get a much-needed boost Saturday against Georgia. Redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley, who has been sidelined since Oct. 1 with a right ankle injury, is probable for this weekends game in Jacksonville, coach Will Muschamp said Monday. We feel like John will be ready to go for the game, Muschamp said. As we progress through the week we will know more about his status. Muschamp has been pleased with Brantleys rehab so far and said the quarterback would return to practice time since suffering the injury late in Although Muschamp remains optimistic that Brantley will play this weekend, freshmen Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will still take reps While Brantley did not practice last week, Muschamp said the quarterback threw the ball and also worked on dropbacks to test the ankles health and see how it would respond to stress. Prior to the injury, Brantley was playing the best football of his career. He completed 66 of 102 passes for he was fourth in the Southeastern Conference in both passing yards per (152.6). But since Brantley has been out, the Gators offense has sputtered. Florida has found the end zone just once in the last 10 quarters while running a dropping three straight games. Brissett and Driskel have combined to go just 24-of-48 passing for 228 yards, three interceptions and one touchdown since Brantleys injury. Certainly, getting him back is going to be a huge psychological shock for our football team I really believe that, Muschamp said. There is no question that he certainly gives us a psychological boost for our football team, on offense and defense, too, because that affects how the defense plays at times. Powell back: After missing the Auburn game with an undisclosed injury suffered against LSU, linebacker Brantley probable to return against Georgia on Saturday John Brantley must feel comfortable wearing that crown by now. On Saturday, when Brantley is expected to make his triumphant return against Georgia, he will Nation: your quarterback, your leader, your savior. But he shouldnt carry that burden. Expectations shouldnt be this high. He has played one half against a good team this season, yet fans and pundits consider him one of the best players in the Southeastern Conference. Crown him. Brantley will shoulder that responsibility come Saturday, because he always has, because he has never had another choice. From the day he signed with Florida in 2007, Brantley has been the Gators future. Never mind that some elite recruits simply dont pan out. Brantley was going perfectly. Before Tebow even left, before Brantley even took a meaningful snap, Floridas backup was the experts. Crown him. Then, he actually started playing games. Fans wanted to bury him. He was no Tebow, no Rex Grossman or Danny Wuerffel or Chris Leak. He was just just average. Brantley to face familiar, undue expectations in return from injury MEGAN WALSH Alligator Writer Junior Lauren Embree may have squared off against a familiar face Monday at the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Championas typical. Top-seeded Embree was crowned runner-up at the Ring Tennis Complex after dropping a straight-set match 2-6, 5-7 to Georgias Chelsey Gullickson. In the past, the Gators have targeted Gullickson, the 2010 NCAA singles champion, by forcing her out of her comfort zone, especially with over-the-shoulder balls. But her composed play against Embree showed that Gullickson is now aware of Floridas strategy. Weve played (Gullickson) before many times and weve always been able to get her out of her ball tolerance by making her hit enough balls to where she wears down, but I thought she was very sharp, UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. She handled balls over her shoulder better over the long haul this weekend than I think Ive seen from her ever.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer Florida had a talented forward receiving too few minutes and lacked depth on defense. Coach Becky Burleigh solved both problems with one decision: move freshman Tessa Andujar to outside back. Prior to No. 13 Floridas game against ArConversely, UFs starting outside backs, Maggie Rodgers and Jazmyne Avant, have ence play began. Avant has played at least 90 pitch for the entirety of three games. UFs outside backs are asked to make runs deep into the attacking third but are also asked to get back on defense when possession changes. They run 6 to 8 miles per game. Having some extra depth in that position is certainly a plus for us, Burleigh said. To increase her options along the back line, Burleigh switched Andujar to outside back, where she started in place of Rodgers the last two games. Andujars ball-attacking skills made her a good candidate to make the transition. Even when she plays offense, shes tenaciously after the ball all the time, Burleigh said. Rodgers made a similar transition from offense to outside back in the offseason, but Andujars switch has given Burleigh the option of also playing Rodgers at less taxing positions day in addition to playing outside back. Maggie is a pretty versatile player, Burleigh said. The defense responded well, allowing just four shots on goal during the last two games. Andujars move to outside back gives Gators more options UF Soccer Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 THE JUNIOR FORWARD AVERAGED 5.6 REBOUNDS AND 1.3 BLOCKS PER GAME LAST YEAR. JOE MORGANAlligator WriterSometimes, Jennifer George needs a slap to the face. Florida wants to get the most out of the 6-foot forward this season and will do whatever is necessary to reach that point. To get her balling with double-doubles, shes got to get mad, sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds said. Were going to try to get her mad before every game. While slapping George was a tactic employed once last season, Bonds said the team is looking for a less painful way to get Georges blood boiling. The Gators recent results in Southeastern Conference play are one potential motivating factor. The team-oriented George said her top priority is to win a conference championship. That being the case, she has reasonable cause to be upset. Florida has racked up a 14-18 conference record, sons. SEC futility has provided George with the necessary anger, as coach Amanda Butler has noticed an increased intensity from George this offseason. Senior guard Jordan Jones also recognized Georges drive, noting the junior forwards maturation and her willingness to take on more responsibility. She cant sit back and be a role player this year, Jones said. (Becoming) a double-double player is what we expect out of her. George played in every game during the 201011 season, starting six contests and ranking second on the team with 5.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. Both marks trailed only one player: senior center Azania Stewart, who grabbed 6.1 boards and swatted 1.8 shots per game. [George] just wants to be a changing factor, a dominant force, Stewart said. She has that potential, because shes the strongest on our team. Stewart marvels at Georges ability in the weight room, calling her work with 65-pound dumb bells crazy. According to Jones, strength and conditioning coordinator Rich Jacobs has referred to George as Floridas strongest player. However, Stewart admits that physical might is only half the battle, saying George needs to mentally grasp her role to become unstoppable. The biggest jump for her last year to this year was just owning how talented she is, Butler said. Her teammates have always wanted her to be important, but shes kind of shied away from that spotlight. the mold of their up-tem po style, but Butler preaches the importance of a balanced attack. To achieve that balance, the spotlight shifts to the paint, where Florida expects George to play mad this season. She could be our best post player, Jones said. With how dominating she is, how athletic she is rebounding, scoring she has the complete package. Much like the Gators SEC title hopes, describing George realizing her full potential involves words like could and should. Florida hopes both prospects are on their way to is. It certainly has been something gradual and its continuing to happen I dont think shes completely all the way there, Butler said. There are more days than not where shes sure of her self and what she needs to do.Gators looking to channel Georges aggression in the post this season BRYAN HOLTAlligator WriterFloridas volleyball team is nearing the end of its most dominant month in years. nessee on Sept. 25, Florida has been the hottest team in the country, winning eight consecutive games in straight sets against Southeastern Conference competition. We can put a lot of credit to the high-octane offense that were playing, UF coach Mary Wise said. We have the rhythm between the setters and the hitters. The No. 13 Gators current run of sweeps is their best since 2009, and another straight-set victory would make it their lengthiest since 2007. During the stretch, Floridas offense has gotten even better at the areas in which it was already excelling and rounded out some other aspects that needed work. One of the great indicators in our sport is what is the hitting per centage that a team can accumulate, Wise said. Right now, ours is pretty good. Florida is hitting .353 during the winning streak, improving its conference-leading season hitting clip to .314. Tennessee is second in the SEC with a .258 mark. As of Oct. 16, Florida was second in the Three of the SECs top 10 hitting percentages belong to UF players. Junior middle blocker Betsy Smith would lead the league with a .426 clip if she averaged three attacks per set instead of 2.82. The Gators biggest concern heading into October was transitioning offense from the backcourt to the frontcourt. Young back-row players like Taylor Unroe and Madison Monserez struggled at times early in the season to make digs that led smoothly into quality sets and kills. Thats where weve really improved from the last time we played Kentucky and Tennessee, Wise said. Weve been a much better serve-reception team, so teams havent been able to get on a roll. Passing often gets over looked because hitters are judged solely on attack numbers, while people turn to dig totals to discuss defensive specialists. However, the Gators offense has been much Another positive is serving. Florida is a high-risk serving team, featuring a number of jump-serverrors to be the SECs runaway leader in service aces. The Gators have six more service aces than any other team in their conference despite playing at least 10 fewer sets than the other squads. When that is working for us, it allows us to make good runs on points, Wise said. Quality serving helps with quality blocking and that leads to what we talked about in terms of transition defense.UF offense dominant during 24-set streak UF W omens Bask etball Wise
