4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2011Alex Catalano / Alligator MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterNathan Skop knows how hard it is to park in Gainesville especially downtown. We give [shoppers] every excuse not to come downtown, he said. other issues, hes running for the At-Large 1 seat of the Gainesville City Commission. He signed up as a candidate Oct. 31. Hes one of six candidates. He is the seventh to join the At-Large 1 race, but candidate Harold Saive withdrew Nov. 2. Skop, a 44-year-old lawyer, said hes heard from resident after resident who have told him theyre unhappy with the current commission. He said he wants to bring an alternative mindset to City Hall. His main concerns if elected ness in government and a focus on public safety, he said. He said he wants to extend public comment at commission meetings and said he doesnt believe all of the current commissioners listen to their constituents. public comment, he said. It seems to represent a form of censorship. Skop said he disagrees with the citys contract with a biomass plant, which was approved by the responsible deal for city residents. Hes had experience with several facets of alternative energy, including wind, solar and nuclear power, but he said this project When you ignore the economics in the zeal to be green, bad things happen, he said. And he said hed be in favor of removing parking meters from University Avenue and downtown in order to create more free parking spaces. He said it could give residents an incentive to go to downtown businesses to spend money and grow the local economy. Born in Charlotte, N.C., he moved to Sanford when he was about six months old. He moved to Gainesville to earn his B.S. in aerospace engineering from UF and graduated in 1991. He earned an MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1996. He moved to Groton, Conn., to help build nuclear submarines for the U.S. Navy. He then moved to Seattle and Palm Beach Gardens before coming back to Gainesville in 2003. Skop graduated from the UF Levin College of Law in 2006 and works for a private law practice. He was appointed by former Gov. Charlie Christ to serve on the Florida Public Service Commission for four years. His term ended Jan. 1. During that time, he said, he fought against two large increases in utility companies rates, which would have raised customers utility bills, that he believed were He said he believes thats the reason he isnt there today. I think we know what happens in Tallahassee when you have a chance to stand up to a very powerful company, he said. He said hell draw on his experience and education in engineer ing, business and law to make informed decisions. He said hed be in favor of streamlining the process to set up a business in the city. The paper work for land development is especially daunting. Some of the members of the community have described that document as being thicker than the King James Bible, he said. But most of all, he said, he wants to help the city make decisions that make good business sense. If we were more diligent in managing our limited resources, he said, we would be able to deliver on our promises. ABOUT 200 ATTENDED AND KATHERINE GREENEAlligator Contributing WriterBefore she left her home, Parinee Mitchell lugged all of her furniture to the second story of her house and wrapped her car in a plastic tarp, being careful to seal each open her possessions, hoping it wasnt the last time she would see them. Mitchell, 33, left Bangkok last week when the area she lived in was evacuated and came to stay with her sister in Gainesville. She was one of about 200 who attended the UF4Thai Flood Relief dinner that the UF Thai Student Association hosted Saturday evening. The fundraiser was held at First Lutheran Church, 1801 NW Fifth Ave., to raise money for the Red Cross in Thailand Apisadaporn Thambundit, 28, a fourthyear medical student and member of the Thai Student Association, created the fundraiser with help from other members of the organization. A lot of the Thai students here in Gainesville have been directly affected by roof or knowing relatives who have had to evacuate, or friends, Thambundit said. Featuring traditional Thai food, per formances, games and entertainment, the event was organized completely through volunteer work. With a $9 donation ahead of time or a $10 donation at the door, guests received coupons that could be used toward food and drinks or games and entertainment. Thambundit said she wasnt sure how much the group raised at the event. There were Thai dancers, Muay Thai kickboxers and games like Smash an M&M, which allowed players three chances to use a rubber spatula to smash the chocolateramp. While the mood at the event was playful and light, the conversation that rippled through the tables of guests eating was a reminder of the cause behind the entertainment and ethnic food. Ben Vongvanij, 24, an architecture junior and member of the Thai Student Assois devastating. They compare this to the tsunami in Japan, but the damage is more, Vongvanij said. Because people have more time to evacuate there will be less deaths, but there will still be more damage. Its give or take. to recover from. The club will continue to raise funds. Although no other events are planned at this time, Thambundit said donations are always welcome.Thai students host dinner to PHILANTHROPY DAVID WILLIAMSAlligator Contributing WriterMore than 250 people got up early Saturday morning and went for a run in an effort to be more healthy. The Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon at the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail, organized by the Florida Track Club, was a way for the organization to help people develop an interest in running and promote a healthy lifestyle, said Mark Ou, the race coordinator for the Florida Track Club. excitement is more rewarding than any ing them enjoying running that much just blows me away. The trail caters to runners of all strengths, offering a route that allows for the ease of a road race with all the The event itself is organized to be accessible for even the newest of runners. Ou said the Florida Track Club strives for a professional experience, sometimes forfeiting funds. Its never been our intention to profit off of races, he said. This year, the club made a point of providing its runners with a more complete race by partnering with Milestone Race Authority, a company which, according to its website, offers the newest technology in timing to enhance the race-day experience. Milestone Race Authority uses a timing system developed by Innovative Timing Systems called Jaguar. The system can measure times to one-thousandth of a second at speeds up to 180 mph. The bane of most races is that you around for an hour or two for the results and rewards, said Jim Shields, a Milestone Race Authority supervisor at the Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon. In the end now, were going to get fast times with extremely fast results. Ou said the new time keeping system increased the operational costs of the race, but it was worth the cost to better the runners experience. Vivek Iyer, a biological chemistry senior, said the race-day environment helped him feel more comfortable with While some runners prefer cold temperatures like those on Saturday, he said the race, because training took place in warm-weather conditions.

Campos said three were arrested and taken to the Alachua County Jail: Thomas Tommy John Baker, who told protesters and trespass again if he was issued a notice; Ahren B. Tsacrios, who was charged with resisting arrest without violence after he made his body limp and Annette Gilley, who had already received two notices to appear in the past for violating the ordinance. Baker said his statement didnt necessarily mean he was going to go back I was eventually going to go back so I let that be, Baker said. The protesters were part of an orgawith the ordinance, Campos said. [The protesters] corralled themselves inside. They pushed signs up around them.

Keeping It Kleen, a public awareness campaign that educates the public on food safety and hygiene, posted an online infographic Wednesday stating that 16 percent of all cellphones contain feces, which harbors the E.coli bacteria. The information was based on a study conducted by researchers in England that focused on 390 samples of volunteers cellphones, according to an Oct. 14 USA Today article. Jorge A. Girn, associate professor in the department of molecular genetics and microout that E. coli exists on cellphones. Girn said the bacteria can be found on door knobs, handrails and even elevator buttons. Everything we touch has feces, he said. Girn blames this on the lack of good hygiene practices among the general public. It tells us that people arent washing their hands, he said. Despite these statistics, Girn said the strands of E. coli that exist on phones and other surfaces are harmless. Other strands of E. coli, on the other hand, can mutate and cause disease when ingested with tainted food. According to the Keeping It Kleen website, people can clean their phones by using Clorox wipes, rubbing alcohol with soft tissue and using houseGirn said the most basic solution is for people to practice good hygiene by washing their hands after going to the bathroom.

Todays question: Did you get charged for a cup of water at the Starbucks on campus last week?Childs PlayZero tolerance goes too farIn Palm Bay, Nick Martinez recently found out by being suspended that his school, Southwest Middle, does not toler ate public displays of affection. His crime? The 14-year-old was caught hugging his female friend. He wasnt touching her inappropriately, and he wasnt forcing himself upon her. Even the principal who spotted the incident told reporters the hug was innocent. But according to school district spokeswoman Christine Davis, the middle school must be protective of the students. From what exactly is this school district protecting its students? Normal human affection? Zero-tolerance policies, especially those related to sexual harassment and public displays of affection, have crossed a line in recent years. In 2006, a 5-year-old boy was cited for sexually harassing a female student after he pinched her buttocks in the hallway of his Hagerstown, Md., elementary school. From 2005 to 2006, 28 kindergarten students in Maryland were suspended for sexual harassment and other related offenses. Children at this age are afraid of the opposite sex because of cooties, so most of these citations cannot truly be warranted. Do these schools really believe that each of these children intended to perform a sexual act on another student? Or is it simply that 5-year-olds dont know anything about sex or sexual harassment and do things adults would never do to each other? Children pick each others noses, for instance. Punishing students for these incidents might be trying, in some weird way, to teach kids lessons about sexual harassment, but can we really expect children this age to know what theyre doing wrong? Chances are the students become more confused about sexual behavior after these incidents, forcing parents to These incidents also appear on the school records of students, which could have consequences for getting into advanced classes or programs. Ted Feinberg, assistant director of the National Association of School Psychologists, told ABC News in response to a 2008 incident that these cases constitute a gross mislabeling of the [childrens] behavior and an overreaction on the part Children should be treated like children, not like teenagers or adults. Sexual harassment is a problem, but not for kids who havent hit puberty yet. Little boys will always pick on little girls and little girls will pick on little boys. When they accidentally touch a no-no part, they dont know any better. Schools should focus on teaching kids reading, writing and arithmetic, not preventing them from giving friendly hugs.Planning for retirement should start nowA know very much about something called a 401(k). How we use it will determine who among us are millionaires at retirement and who will live in poverty. Our grandparents got pensions and worked for the same employer for 30 years. We will be given the option to use tirement, but some will succeed wildly and some will fail miserably. When you go out and get a job after graduation, funding a 401(k) should be near the top of your priority list. A traditional 401(k) is a special account for retirement. Almost anyone who has a job will have one, especially people with the kinds of jobs that college grads go into. Money you put into this account is tax free, and grows tax free until you retire when withdrawals are taxed. Most employers will also offer a match for each dollar you put in the account. A typical number is a 4-percent match. This means that if you enroll in your companys 401(k), you will receive $1 for every $1 you put into the account for up to 4 percent of your pay. This is free money! Its unbelievable that anyone chooses not to do this. By signing up for your 401(k), you are saving 8 percent of your pay while only chipping in 4 percent. This is all tax-free, so it actually costs even less after taxes. To illustrate my point, lets assume that we have two Gator engineering graduates, Jorge and Joe, who both get a job with Boeing upon receiving their degrees. Lets assume that both make $100,000 per year for 40 years (just to make the calculation simple). Jorge is smart with his money and contributes $4,000 per year from his paycheck to his 401(k). Boeing matches it with another $4,000, so his total savings is $8,000 per year. Lets also assume that he puts 60 percent in a Total Stock Market Index Fund and 40 percent into a Total Bond Market Index Fund and gets a rate of return of 8 percent a year. Because hes investing in his 401(k), this return is taxfree. Joe is very intelligent, but unfortunately, those book smarts He doesnt have time to think about retirement so he opts out of Boeings 401(k). To build savings, he decides to put away $4,000 in his bank account in a 3-percent that he is only able to save about $3,000 per year, and that since interest is taxed he only gets a 2-percent yield. After 40 years, Jorge has a balance of $2.25 million, and Joe has a balance of $187,000. Thats a huge difference. Most people our age forget about retirement until theyre in their 40s and then realize they have to save half their income to not work into their seventies. If Joe decides to start contributing to that 401(k) getting 8 percent per year with 20 years until retirement, he would have to save a total of $45,000 per year just to end up with the same balance as Jorge. What do you think will be easier over time: contributing $8,000 per year to your retirement over your career or $45,000 per year when your family needs money for college, housing and automobiles? So the moral of the story is to start saving for retirement early through your employers 401(k). Every dollar you invest for your retirement now is worth at least four times what a dollar invested in your 40s will be. During your orientation, have an energy drink and force yourself to go to the human resources department and make sure you are signed up for your 401(k). You want to ask them to deduct enough from your paycheck so that you can get 100 percent of the employer match. You wont miss the money, and it will make the difference between retiring at 60 and retiring six feet under. Travis Hornsby is a statistics and economics senior at UF. His column appears on Mondays.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Gadhafi column misguided I would like to thank the Alligator as well as the authors of Obama is No Better Than Che Guevara for providing one of the best fake news articles this side of the Onion. Their send-up of the intellectual inconsistency and navet of the extreme left was nothing short of sidesplitting. I mean, how could anyone read an article defending mass-murdering tyrant Muammar dulge in a hearty chuckle? One of the highlights of the article was calling the Libyan rebregime bloodthirsty fascists. I laughed even harder when they implied that President Obama bore direct responsibility for everything the rebels had ever done. I was nearly in tears when they blamed Obama for civilian casualties in Sirte, Libya, sight of one of the wars grisliest battles. Haha! Of course Obama can control every facet of life in a war zone in which there are no American ground troops and the U.S. role was mostly refueling British and French planes. But perhaps the coup de grce was their solemn disappointment in the lack of due process or proper burial for that hero of democracy, tortured and murdered his own people for more than forty years. So thank you again, Alligator, and please keep articles like these coming, because no one could actually have a worldview so insanely detached from reality and so lacking in nuance or even basic common sense to actually think this way. I hope the Lockerbie bombing victims, wherever they are, are able Geoff Puryear Political science graduate studentLetters to the Editor This past Tuesday, I witnessed a couple on a Route while a guy sitting across from them stared intently, jostling his naughty bits. Now, Id expect this sort of behavior on the 35 (passing by ShandsCair does things to people), but it seems our towns more prurient residents have taken a turn for the nasty, and it is making me feel uncomfortable. But fear not: There is a solution! ness as a competition. This means if someone does something awkward around us, we should do something equally awkward back at him or her. If you see a couple all up on each other out in public, shout stuff like, Someones getting laid tonight, or, if said couple is hot, Im so jealous of you guys! If the couple is ugly, just vomit next to them. People should not bump uglies in public especially not the ugly. If a couple gets handsy on a bus, do what the man I mentioned earlier did. Thats my go-to strategy for combating excessive PDA. At least audibly note their public philandering thats not as rude as their use of public transit for foreplay. Doing this sort of thing may make you feel awkward. Ignore that feeling. Get offended! A risque public is a risky public. No one should make us feel awkward without our consent. Remaining silent does just that. Do not misapply this reasoning to rape. It is not the same thing. Making people feel awkward is almost always the expected result from silence. Sex should not be. The goal is to hold a mirror up to the people being awkward and make them feel the way the rest of us feel. If your reactions to their behavior make them uncomfortable, they shouldnt be doing it in public. Studies about American civil rights movements always demonstrate one universal truth about maintaining norms: Intolerance works. Homosexual and interracial couples were harassed for kissing in public in the 60s and, awfulness aside, it worked: Homosexuals and interracial couples didnt kiss in public. Though intolerant tactics have been used for oppressive and hateful purposes, the tactics themselves are not inherently evil. By being intolerant of racexample society has shoved it underground. If we arent locking up those who dont love lock-down in public, we should at least show them just how awkward they make us feel. C.R. Skambis is an English and telecommunication junior at UF. People should combat public displays of affection Guest columnC.R. SkambisSpeaking Out When did Vinny and Pauly D replace Webster and Roget? Popular words and phrases change from decade to decade and generation to generation. In recent years, however, our generation has contributed to the degradation of the English language. There is a growing push for more Americans to become bilingual, but how can we be expected to do that when we can barely master spoken English? Instead of expanding our vocabularies and aiming for eloquence, our verbal skills are focused on being hip. We may no longer use sit on it, necking or daddy-o, but terms that have arisen in the past few years make the script of Clueless sound like Thoreau. Bro, broski or brah: If we cross paths out on the town and I do not know you, this is not an acceptable form of introduction; this rule also applies to dude or chief. When I go to Hy-Vee [a local grocery store] and ask for help, I exsomebody directing me where to go followed by the word dawg. Face palm, fail, epic fail: Perhaps the slang for which I have the most personal contempt, this collection of terms has become so ubiquitous among young adults, outsiders would think all we do is fail. TXT speak: It is acceptable on Facebook, Twitter and in a text message, not during a conversation. A prime example of our current level of laziness, speaking in text abbreviations is an insult to the expanse that is the English language. Is it that much harder to use the full words instead of LOL, IDK or TTYL? Like, um, like: The epitome of squalid verbal talent. Not like in the sense of a Facebook status, but like in the sense of every other word of an unprepared class presentation where like, every, like, other word, like, comes out minced between likes. Everybody hears it, everybody hates it, yet no one makes an effort to stop it. Words evolve and grow so that we may better ourselves, not so we can relegate them. Unfortunately, our vernacular is a representation of the time. In 2011, Merriam-Webster added bromance and tweet to their While many remember dictionaries as a reference for expanding vocabularies, dictionaries basis for inclusion is usage. Thus, the eroding quality and simplicity of commonly used words have forced the utmost authorities in language to select these putrid terms. bump the champion of the group. This coming from the company that previously honored respectable terms such as admonish and insipid among its words of the year. Slang terms come and go. Some terms are slip.

Injuries: Offensive lineman Chaz Green (ankle) and linebacker Lerentee McCray (shoulder) were held out of Saturdays game. Both warmed up with the team before the game, but neiWhile those two were inactive, running back Chris Rainey returned from an ankle injury he suffered against Georgia. Although Jeff Demps got Rainey who shouldered the load against South Carolina. He carried the ball a team-high 17 times for a gameand seasonhigh 132 yards, and his 47-yard run early in the fourth quarter set up the Gators only touchdown of the afternoon. Cant run 100 percent, but I did the best I can, Rainey said after the game, adding that his ankle was still sore. The redshirt senior was walking with a noticeable limp after the game. Linebacker Jelani Jenkins also returned from injury, reclaiming his starting job after suffering a concussion against Georgia and sitting out last weeks win against Vanderbilt. Jenkins recorded four tackles and broke up a pass against South Carolina. Safety DeAnte Saunders notched his Gamecocks. On South Carolinas second drive of the game, cornerback and fellow freshman Marcus Roberson pressured quarter back Connor Shaw on a delayed blitz, Saunders anticipated the pass, jumped the route and made an athletic diving grab to give Florida the ball near midThe Gators ensuing drive Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org. and thats really where they gained most of their yards. South Carolina entered the game ranked third in the Southeastern Conference with 188.4 rushing yards per game. On paper, the Gators run defense should have matched up. Florida was allowing 123.3 yards on the ground per game, but that number was aided by strong performances against bottom dwellers like FAU and UAB. During Floridas four-game losing streak in October, the defense allowed an average of 201 rushing yards. Its frustrating, linebacker Jelani Jenkins said. One of the main things we want to do is stop the run. When we dont, theyre able to be effective, take shots, just keep the clock running. Jenkins said Florida did not recognize some of South Carolinas packages, like when the Gamecocks ran the ball with no one lined up at running back. Coaches drew South Carolinas formations on a blackboard at halftime, showing the players how to attack. Easley returned in the second half, rejuvenated, as did UFs run defense, which held South Carolina to just 55 yards in the third and fourth quarters. Still, the Gators defense could not Wilds twice.

Alligator StaffEasleys mistake allows Gamecocks to run clock DEFENSE, from page 16Rosario, Boynton lead team with 19 apieceEven though Beal took only 10 shots, Donovan said the freshmans high shooting per centage should allow him to get to 20 points in a hurry dur ing most games. Donovan also praised the quality of Beals attempts. The thing with him that I think makes him such a good player is hes not a high-volume shooter, Donovan said. He scores very quietly, and scores. Beal credited the chemistry between the guards for keeping him involved, despite his low numbers from three. guards had a 14-to-3 assist-toturnover ratio against Jackson State and was able to keep scoring high in the backcourt. Shooting guards Mike Rosario and Kenny Boynton led all scorers with 19 points each. The duo stayed hot from outside, combining to go 9 for 15 from behind the arc. Senior point guard Erving Walker added 10 points on just six shots. The ball movement is per fect, Beal said. Everybodys knocking down shots. When we see that, you know thats Florida basketball. Its the way coach Donovan wants us to play and its just beautiful. Overall, the Gators shot 51.3 percent from three. Although Donovan was pleased with his freshman starters performance against the Tigers, he suspected Beal would be itching to raise the teams percentage from deep next time out. In his realm and the way he thinks, 1 for 6 from the 3-point line, thats unacceptable, Donovan said. (Hes thinking) I need to shoot the ball better. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org.

contest. In their last six fourth quarters, the Gators have moved the ball only 271 yards compared to 644 for their opponents. UF has been outscored 62-12 during the same span. Decreasing production as the game goes on could be a sign other coaches are doing a better job of adapting and making adjustments than Muschamp is. Or it could fall on the players. The fourth quarter is where stars are supposed to be born and legends are supposed to shine. In any of Floridas three close losses, the Gators only needed one play to change the outcome. But, without any true playmakers, they found themselves on the losing end. This team has to learn how Omar Hunter said. When I was on that team, you had some guys like (Brandon) Spikes and (Tim) Tebow, and they were able Florida doesnt have those type of players this year, plain and simple. There isnt a vocal leader or a guy who can be expected to make a difference when the game is on the line. And its not just the starters. Depth is limited across the board, perhaps another factor in UFs end-of-game futility. A gassed defense hasnt been shot at a comeback. Gators opponents have held the ball for a combined 55:03 in the last six fourth quarters, compared to just 34:57 for UF. Whether its youth, depth, inexperience, bad coaching or a lack of gotten it done in critical situations. Opponents have converted nine of their last 10 fourth-down tries. Florida has scored touchdowns on just 45.2 percent of its trips to the red zone, No. 116 nationally. have crumbled under pressure and have not closed in crunch time, leading to losses in three games senior running back Chris Rainey said the Gators should have won.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffRunning back Brandon Wilds (right) and quarterback Connor Shaw combined for nine car ries and 37 yards as South Carolina ran down the clock in the fourth quarter Saturday. GREG, from page 1Both lines dominated in losswhich started the previous drive with 5:34 remaining, was able to bleed the clock out in much the same way it controlled the entire game: rushing the ball down the Gators throats. But when questioned about the team suffering a lapse in the fourth quarter, Muschamp got defensive. There wasnt no lapse. What was the youre talking about. We made a stop at the end. I dont know what youre talking about. What lapse at the end? We made a stop and On the last drive for South Carolina, Shaw and running back Brandon Wilds carried the ball a combined nine times for 37 yards. Flor ida had a chance to force a three-and-out, but defensive tackle Dominique Easley jumped offside to extend the drive exactly the type of critical mistake that has plagued the Gators throughout their worst season in 25 years. Im sure hes disappointed, but its not said. That game is not his fault. You can pick on anybody for the game, for that loss. Ill take the blame. (John) Brantley, hell take some of Although the score was close at the end, there was plenty of blame to spread around. The haggard offensive line, which was the site of another experimentation with personnel, was again terrible, allowing Brantley to be knocked around all afternoon. Twice the Gators went backward inside After putting the ball on the ground twice, they have 24 fumbles on the season and a minus-10 turnover margin, which is tied with FAU for 113th nationally. champ said of UFs problems coughing it up. Also, the defensive line could not stop the Gamecocks, as they rushed for 215 yards while running on fumes, starting an inexperienced quarterback and a backup running back. In four straight losses in October, the Gators were abused at the line of the scrimmage, as opponents rushed an average of 46 times, compared to only 22.3 pass attempts. That trend continued Saturday, as South Carolina rushed 52 times and passed just 13. Asked to assess his teams play in the trenches, a clearly agitated Muschamp was succinct.
