Alligator Contributing WriterThe Democratic Partys biggest names gathered in Charlotte, N.C., to support President Barack Obamas bid for a second term, but some of his hardest-working student supporters watched crowded around a projector screen at UF. Wearing Obama T-shirts and stickers, students met in the Reitz Union Matthews Suite from 7:30 p.m. to nearly midnight to watch speeches from Vice President Joe Biden and Obama. Weve had a great response, said UF College Democrats President William Farrell, 20. About 80 people attended the watch party throughout the evening. The room was especially packed during Obamas nomination acceptance speech. Its a good reminder of why all of us are out there working and donating our free time to make sure the president is re-elected, Farrell said. The environmental science junior said he thinks many students are thankful for Obamas policies and would like to give him another term. was an incredibly special year, he said, adding that this years election is just as important. Were going to work really hard to make sure the turnout is as high as possible. The Gators for Obama committee has been working every weekday to register students, said co-chair Rachel McGovern, a 20-year-old political science junior. The organization is focusing on voter registration until the Oct. 9 deadline. People know were there, McGovern said. We have people coming up to the tables. Thursday night, Biden spoke at 9:30 p.m., drawing applause from the students as he talked about the bailout of General Motors and the death of Osama bin Laden.

The Presbyterian and Disciples of Christ Student Center, located at 1402 W. University Ave., will leave its current building, and the space will reopen in the summer of 2013 as U14, a hub of seven retail spaces and food venues. The move will also affect the 35-year-old Burrito Bros. Taco Co. that resides in the back of the building, a restaurant staple for the Gainesville community. Seth Lane, a director of Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group, said his company is planning to get Burrito Bros. a renovated space in U14. Lane said the center is expanding to about 9,500 square feet. There will be seven suites for retail and a 6,500-square-foot porch for patrons. About 20 businesses have shown interest, Lane said. UF architecture alumni Elaina Berkowitz and Roland Faust designed the plans for the center as part of a design competition hosted by the developers. The contest was only open to UF juniors and seniors. Project architect Stephen Bender said having that student involvement adds to the value of the property. It was really fun to work on and for us it was a really exciting project, said Berkowitz, 22. It meant a lot to be able to create a new icon in the community.

The event, which will be held at 8 p.m. in Orange & Brew, is free for students. The photographer, 45-year-old Pam Marlin, works as a graduate program assistant in UFs physics department. She got the idea from a project that featured World War II photographs in front of their present-day scenes. Twenty of her UF photographs will be at Mondays gallery, which she will be attending. Her favorite features an old-fashioned car full of children on a dirt path in front of Smathers Library. Now, the sidewalk is paved and has a lush landscape. We always live in the present but dont think about the past, Marlin said. That was the goal: to remember. RUB has never done a gallery show like this because theyve never had an arts committee, said RUB adviser Dianna Lampitt. The organization added it to broaden student input within the Reitz Union. We cover pretty much everything besides the art faction, Lampitt said.

HER SALSA RECIPE IS TASTED NATIONALLY. MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterThe recipe started with a can of diced tomatoes and ended with a national championship. Gainesville resident Cheryl Gallowitz was named the winner of Moes Southwest Grill Raise the Salsa Bar Contest on Aug. 30. Contest participants submitted their homemade salsa recipes online for a chance to win $1,000 and have their salsa featured in restaurant locations nationwide in 2013. Gallowitzs homemade Three Bears Salsa was choQuentin Jalapeo and Fires of Hell by the companys executive chef. In spite of her recent culinary success, Gallowitz said she still considers herself a novice in the kitchen. The 38-year-old UF Large Animal Hospital veterinary technician prefers the safety of a handheld vegetable chopper to kitchen knives and has no qualms eyeballing ingredient amounts. The only time I was precise was when I submitted the recipe online, she said. I do my best not to cut myself or mutilate the ingredients. For the self-proclaimed rookie cook, creating the salsa was a process of trial and error spurred by necessity. In 2010, Gallowitz was preparing to move to Gainesville from upstate New York. Without her favorite New York restaurant, Mexican cantina Santa Fe, she was left in a spicy conundrum. In a feat of sheer palate power, Gallowitz set to replicate the recipes unique style. It only took her six tries. looking for, she said. Theyre not really unusual ingredients. She diced yellow and white onions for a sweet and salty background to the salsa. Sprinkling in just enough pickled jalapenos added a conventional, subtle spice to the salsa, she said. I was trying to emulate the freshness and tartness of it, Gallowitz said. It wasnt over ly sweet. The result is a taste thats not too hot, not too mild, according to Gallowitz. She said she originally wanted to name her recipe Goldilocks Salsa, a homage to the timeless fairytale; she decided against it before entering the contest, settling instead for Three Bears Salsa. Gallowitz said she was pleasantly surprised to have won the competition. After all, she said, Three shes ever created. For something I just took a chance on, it paid off, she said.

The event was created in conjunction with the Year of the Bat, a two-year global campaign to raise awareness about the importance of bats. About 40 percent of bat species in the United States are on the edge of extinction, Carey said. We want to do anything we can to bring awareness, she said. Amanda Harvey, education assistant at the museum, said there will be different activities for visitors, including games. Tampa Bay Bats will bring four different species of bats for visitors to interact with from a few feet away.

Its a gray Pasha Antonenko, an assistant professor of educational technology at UF, said hes anticipating the announcement. Hes been waiting for the iPhone 5, which is rumored to have a larger display screen and a smaller dock connector, to come out for a while. But new features arent enough for some UF students. Criminology junior Courtney Marasigan, 20, said she just bought an iPhone 4S, so shes not likely to purchase a new one if announced next week. Still, Marasigan said shed rather Apple release a new iPhone than a new iPad. According to technology blogs, the iPhone 5 will likely be slimmer and lighter than its predecessors. However, some college students budgets often dont leave room for purchases based solely on updated features. I am absolutely content with the iPhone 4, said 25-year-old environmental science junior Giannette Rodriguez. I dont even have the iPhone 4S.

The grand opening of the Harry Potters World: Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine exhibit attracted more than 200 people, including students and families, said Michele Tennant, bioinformatics librarian. Tennant, 53, who wore a I AM A MUGGLE sign on her chest and another that read REALLY on her back, smiled to guests as she waved around a blue wand she made at an activity table. I feel great because we had no idea this many people were going to show up, Tennant said.

DEVON ABELMANAlligator Contributing WriterUF is the No. 1 party school in the nation, according to rankings released last week by Unigo, a college resource website. Unigo based its rankings off of 300,000 campus lifestyle reviews submitted to the site. The only other Florida school on the 2013 Fifty Shades of Cray list was Florida State University at No. 6. Year-round sunny weather, football culture, dating scene and substantial Greek life were listed as reasons for UFs prime spot on the Top 10 list. Unigo acknowledged Gator Nights as UFs option for students who choose to abstain from the party scene. UF shows up in all kinds of rankings, university spokesman Steve Orlando said. Some ranking systems are better than others. Honestly, Id never heard of this one until now, but Im glad to see they mentioned Gator Nights. Political science junior Troy Robinson, 20, said he believed the ranking unfairly generalized UF reviewers used the schools size and location to stereotype the student body. From outside of Florida, the weather can be seen as nice, so UF could be seen as a party school, he said. From within, we are used to this, so its the same as any other large university.UF ranked No. 1 party school in the nationLOCAL SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterThere may be fewer tents up on football game days this year. The Gainesville City Commission voted 4-0 Thursday night in favor of a new ordinance that would prevent bars with underage drinking violations from selling alcohol outdoors during game days. Three commissioners were absent for the vote, including Todd Chase, who voiced his opposition to the measure in the Although Chase was present for Thursdays meeting, he said he stepped out to use the restroom a few minutes before the commission voted on the measure, which caused him to miss the vote. Im not at all comfortable with the concept of economic deterrents against businesses, Chase said after the meeting. I didnt see the need to effectively punish a very small portion of the business community. The current underage drinking ordinance requires that a certain number of violations be reached before bars face any consequences. For example, a venue with a capacity of 200 people or less es within three months. For bars with a larger capacity, that number becomes 10 arrests within three months. The new ordinance will join longer-standing decrees, which mainly prohibit the entry of underage patrons after 9 p.m. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@ alligator.org.Gainesville approves gameday bar penalties Im not at all comfortable with the concept of economic deterrents against businesses.Todd Chasecommissioner I am here from the Ministry of Creativity on behalf of Professor McGonagall.Patty Lipkaprogram director

A need for pragmatism over ideologyAs this column is being written, the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., is kicking off its second day. Already we have heard inspirational messages of progress from the likes of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and First Lady Michelle Obama. Unfortunately, these inspirational messages sound far more tepid than they did in 2008. In the wake of continued economic distress for millions of unemployed Americans, and the worst level of political stalemate and income inequality seen since the Gilded Age, President Obama is struggling to sell himself to the American people for a second term. To be fair, the president has accomplished a host of admirable feats, not the least of which are: averting a depression, ending the war in Iraq, ordering the operation to take down Osama bin Laden, repealing dont ask, dont tell, taking steps to ensure pay equality for women and expanding health care coverage to millions of more Americans. At the same time, the president has disappointed liberals in probably the same number of ways. His most unforgivable government as being bought and paid for by Wall Street. Despite speaking on the campaign trail of changing the culture on Wall Street, and avoiding the insane practice of trying the same things over again and expecting different results, he did exactly that: He appointed the very same people to his economic team that pushed through the policies that By embedding incompetent scoundrels like Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers into the upper echelons of his administration, Obama showed his true colors as a corporate democrat reluctant to challenge the systematic corruption and recklessness of the out-of-control banking industry, which to this day, has kept average citizens in anguish while allowing executives to shower themselves with absurd salaries and bonuses. With all this being said, the classic political dilemma arises yet again: choosing between the lesser of two evils. This election, however, is no contest. In selecting between a moderate liberal who has betrayed right-winger, the choice is stark. The primary dilemma, rather, arises in deciding whether to vote according to principle or according to practicality. The true progressive party in this country is not the Democratic Party, but arguably the Green Party, which this year is running Dr. Jill Stein as its candidate for president. In the latest issue of The Progressive magazine, Stein tells editor Matthew Rothschild why she is running against Obama: Working people have been betrayed by Obama, noting that he has largely ignored unions and hasnt fought for minimum wage increases. Concerning foreign policy, she cites that the president expanded the drone wars and surged troops into Afghanistan and on the environment, she says that he has undermined international accords and scuttled the effort to get climate change under control. These are all valid arguments. Nevertheless, it doesnt take a veteran political strategist to understand a vote for any party other than the Democrats or the Republicans is simply, for all practical purposes, a vote wasted. The reality of our current and longstanding system is that if you want a relatively liberal or progressive (i.e. sane) candiHopefully, one day our country will break the stranglehold the two-party system has on our politics, making way for an effective third party in the vein of the Progressive Party of 1912 or the Green Party of today. Until then, the left must hold true to the principle that derigid ideology, liberals and progressives must proudly hold on to their pragmatism by understanding that the only effective votes citizens can cast this year for progress are votes for President Obama and the Democratic Party.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 How do you get an English major off of your porch? Pay for the pizza. I see this idea constantly in articles, cartoons and blogs, and it drives me crazy: A liberal arts degree is useless in this job market. I dont know if the intended purpose is to scare away potential liberal arts students or to pressure universities to focus people like me furious. The liberal arts, as I understand it, are abilities of the student, as opposed to occupational training, Im 30. Ive been out there in the job market since I was 18, doing everything from working behind a counter to ground in Iraq. I dont mind manual labor, and as such, I will forever have a Plan B that I know wont kill me. Im not in college to get a degree; Im in college to get an ing site or in a uniform, so be it. If that happens, I know Ill have the wherewithal to make the most out of any situation life throws me. And believe me, life can throw a curveball. I think the obsession with downplaying the education level of liberal arts majors is a big problem right now the idea that it is the degree and not the education that gets a person where they want to be in life. For some professions, the degree is certainly important, but its the quality of learning that takes place while earning the degree that seems to determine how successful one is likely to be. Of course I want my physician to have a degree from a reputable institution, but more than that, I want him to really know what he is doing. If you havent had a bad doctor experience, please trust me: Graduation from medical school alone isnt enough. If it was, people wouldnt have the wrong limbs occasionally amputated, or in my case, the wrong medicine prescribed (almost fatally). Todays liberal arts degree is the vestigial remnant of the once-mighty Trivium (grammar, rhetoric, logic) and Quadrivium (arithmetic, geometry, music, astronomy). Since classical antiquity, this education model has created citizens as opposed to just workers. Most of the notable minds we encounter in our studies at the university level had such an education, including almost all of those credited with founding this country though most of them had law degrees as well. The result of this kind of educational worldliness is the ability to ask and begin to answer questions that are bigger than ourselves and even our societies. Not to say that getting a liberal arts degree will make you John Adams or Thomas Jefferson, but at least you will be able to read their work and follow along. While degrees shouldnt matter as much as the quality of education, they do in many cases, and a sad reality is that your liberal arts degree might not be enough. The same goes for business majors and biology majors and everyone else. To be competitive in a non-entrepreneurial setting, its a good idea to go beyond the four-year degree, even if you have to work while you do it. A minor in a business or comnet. Give yourself as many tools as you can to succeed, but dont graduate from college having learned to do a job and having failed to learn how to live and do what you love. Its a scary world out there, and graduating into it can be overwhelming. Dont let the fear of not owning a yacht stop you from pursuing what you are passionate about. This country desperately needs many more people capable of thinking on their own, drawing their own conclusions and acting on those instead of what is popular or partisan. Dont let public opinion convince you that critical thinking and knowledge of humanity are unnecessary and frivolous. On the contrary, you can use those skills and that knowledge to adapt to any work or living situation, which will be more useful in the long run in this ever-changing, modern economic landscape. Trent Cason is a columnist at the Oklahoma Daily at the University of Oklahoma.Dont let a degree get in the way of getting an educationGuest columnTrent CasonSpeaking Out Its impossible to avoid annoying people in class. You can, however, avoid becoming one of these people by doing your part to make a class a semipleasant experience for all. The Tweaker Weve all been stuck next to that person who will not stop drumming a pen at hummingbird speed, tapping their foot on the tile or bouncing their leg a mile a minute, as if theyre temporarily possessed by the Energizer Bunny. Thats not making class go by any faster. In fact, such incessant tweaking makes it much slower for the rest of us with each tap, tick and shake. Do us all a favor and sit still, shut up and space out in silence like the rest of us. The Know-It-All Theres always the one kiss-ass who sits smack in the middle of the very front row with every intention of anproceed to debate on each point mentioned for the rest of class. Taking up the entire class time with your incessant babble is not going to get you participation points it will get everyone in class to hate you. The Overachiever The overachiever is somewhat like the know-it-all in the sense that they both need to take a giant chill pill. This obnoxious student questions everything, takes notes frivolously and highlights them into a giant rainbow while stopping the teacher every minute repetition of a simple concept. The Party Animal Likely a sorority sister or frat boy, this individual seems to think they are the only student letting loose on the weekend. They waddle in on Monday morning and make proclamations like, Man, Im so hungover, or Oh my gosh, Im never drinking again, at which point they proceed to recap every event of their entire weekend. Once class begins, they decrease the volume of their voice only slightly and continue to brag about their recent alcohol consumption. Get a life. We all party, and youre probably a lightweight anyway. have stayed in bed but decided to grace us all with their germs instead. They cough and blow their nose through the duration of class, and are most apt to attend on a test day when the air is silent minus the turning of pages and unYour Boat.

Duncans reinstatement reversed a ruling by the Education Departments chief administrative judge, who concluded Virginia Tech did not violate Under the Clery Act, which was enacted in 1990, universities that particiare required to keep and disclose information about crime on or near campus and issue warnings during potential threats. On April 16, 2007, campus police received a 911 call at 7:15 a.m. about gunshots scene 15 minutes later, where they found one student dead and another critically injured. Administrators sent a campuswide email at 9:26 a.m. warning about a shooting incident. Minutes after the email was sent, the same man in the dormitory opened building, where he killed 30 more students and professors, and himself. Duncans Friday decision is the latest to come in a years-long investigathe university had violated the Clery Act in December 2010, saying the warning at 9:26 a.m. came too late and was too vague. Rather than get tangled up in bureaucracy, Virginia Tech and other college administrations can treat Duncans decision for what it is a bar by which to measure campus safety and build a safer future for university communities. In the wake of tragedy, it is down the line, you have to actually move forward.

Bastel spent 10 months as an assistant at Florida before being promoted to head coach to replace Jan Dowling, who resigned at the end of the 2011-12 season for personal reasons. In addition to having a new coach, the Gators will also welfreshmen Emma Smyser from Naples and Ursa Orehek from Domzale, Slovenia. After losing three players to graduation, the Gators are looking to add depth with transfers Katie Mitchell from UCF, Emma Elcin Ulu from Redlands Community College and Anna Young from Tulsa. No. 9 Florida will return its top two players senior Mia Piccio and sophomore Camilla Hedberg from last seasons squad, 12th at the NCAA Championships. Last year, Piccio and Hedberg led the team in stroke average as well ishes. While the women are competing at Yeamans Hall Club, the men will follow closely behind as they head to Kiawah Island, S.C., to play in The Invitational at The Ocean Course to open their season on Sunday. The men return all but Michael Furci and Zach Lee from last seasons squad. Furci and Lee only had 24.5 rounds combined that counted toward the Gators tour nament total last year. Like the women, the No. 12 Gators will return their top two players. Seniors T.J. Vogel and Tyler McCumber combined for 2011-12 campaign. Last year, Vogel led Florida in tournaments at par or better (seven), average (71.3), birdies (132) and eagles (four), as well as recording the Gators only two individual wins. as it heads into the Kiawah Invitational.

Also sporting a 4-4 record is The Associated Press Mark NEED MORE FOLLOWERS Long, who is so desperate to add to his 4,138 followers on Twitter that he tried to get Jeff Driskel to recruit his parents.

Florida hasnt faced a conference foe before Week 3 since 2004, when it lost 30-28 against Tennessee in the seasons second game. Wide reciever Frankie Hammond Jr. said he told Floridas freshman to stay focused and pay close attention to detail in the conference environment, especially one as loud as Kyle Field. Focusing on communication and coming out of the gates strong will be critical. [Starting fast] is very important, wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. said. to a great start and just keep it rolling from there. One of Floridas primary focuses this season has been setting the tone early. After a 7-6 2011, the Gators are looking to establish themselves as a tough, physical team in the new year. That mission got off to a poor start on Saturday, as four-touchdown underdog Bowling Green played Florida close into the fourth quarter. Thats one of those things all summer: We want to start fast, Jon Bostic said. We wanted to start fast last week. We got off to a slow start. Hopefully we can start a little better this week at Texas A&M. The Gators showed many signs of rust on Saturday. Florida committed 14 penalties for 106 yards, the offensive line failed to get a consistent push on third-and-short, the defense missed tackles and both sides of the ball suffered from costly drops. Coach Will Muschamp knows how important it is to get those issues ironed out, or the Gators could very easily start SEC play 0-1. Its a critical game for us to go on the road and play well, Muschamp said, to improve from Game 1 to Game 2, which we need to. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.
