Heather White Director, Career Resource Center Sept. 10, 1981: Computers become more widely used, but students lack the skills to operate them. UF professors believe computer illiteracy will be a problem for employers in the future. A computer lab manager said all business students have been trained in computer language, a policy thats been in effect since at least 1971. Sept. 14, 1994: A USF sophomore kidnaps two 16-yearold boys at gunpoint, leads police on a high-speed chase and eventually shoots one of the boys and himself. The chase, which took place in northeast Gainesville, reached speeds of 70 miles per hour and ended with one of the boys escaping, but the other staying trapped with the suspect. The boy who was shot remained in critical condition at Shands at UF, and the suspect died soon after he shot himself.

The otters spent the healthy enough before being introduced to the exhibit. They joined mother and daughter otters, Bhandara and Snaggletooth. Sept. 11, 2001: The Manhattan skyline was forever changed when two airliners crashed into the World Trade Center. Another plane crashed into one side of the Pentagon in Pennsylvania. The four planes carried 266 people with no until weeks later. No one took responsibility for the attacks, but federal authorities said Osama bin Laden was the prime suspect. In Gainesville, many UF students consoled each other, some donated blood for crisis victims and all listened to The Star-Spangled Banner as it rang from Century Tower. ILANA LIFSHITZ TATILA BROCKAlligator Contributing WriterThe guests of honor on UFs campus Friday night came hairy, winged and hungry. The Florida Museum of Natural History partnered with Conservancy to host the Year of the Bat Celebration. At the museum, a mixed crowd of adults, students and children chose from 12 different activities that taught them about the importance of bats. One display showed types of food and drinks bats make possible by pollination including mangos, oranges and tequila. Bat feces can be used as fertilizer, too. Bats save farmers $3 [billion] to $20 billion a year, said Brian Pope, director of Lubee Bat Conservancy. But 40 percent of bat species in the United States are threatened with extinction due to overhunting and deforestation. Later, more than 100 visitors lined the fence in front of the bat house and barn on Museum Road to watch the nightly emergence of dinner of insects. UF alumna Emily Taylor said she and her 3-year-old son, Jacoto see the emergence. As soon as the thousands of tops and Lake Alice, it became his favorite part of the night. His mom agreed. Its like a river of bats and something you see in a movie, Taylor said.Gainesville celebrates year of the batKelly Logan / AlligatorLiz Flores, a 26-year-old volunteer at Tampa Bay Bats, feeds Uno the bat at the Year of the Bat Celebration at the Florida Museum of Natural History on Friday evening.

mind them whats at stake, Psaki said. Obama further rallied the crowd by highlighting what he has done and will do for the countrys youth. He said he plans to give all Americans the opportunity to compete in todays job market. If re-elected, he proposed to cut the growth of college tuition in half. He also said that his environmental agenda would create more jobs in the United States. It is a vital interest of young people in this country that we do something about our dependence on foreign oil, Carney said. Investing in all forms of energy, such as biofuels, wind and solar, will create more jobs in the U.S., Carney said. Although Obama has made various campaign visits to large universities like Ohio State University and the University of Colorado, Psaki didnt mention whether Obama would make an appearance at UF in the future. UF College Democrats President William Farrell said he would love it if Obama came to speak at UF. I would want to hear about his experience in the White House and his plans for the future, said Farrell, 20. Farrell, an environmental science major, commended the presidents work to lower interest rates on student loans as well as insuring young adults through the Affordable Care Act. Its a tough economy, said Farrell. Coming out of college with health care is reassuring. The bus tour started in Seminole and Kissimmee on Saturday and continued to Melbourne and West Palm Beach on Sunday. Were here for two days, because we dont take any voter for granted, Psaki said. By the end of the event, spectators were sweaty but nonetheless roaring with applause for Obamas 36-minute speech. Were not going back, he said. We are moving forward. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2012AP PhotoPresident Barack Obama does the Gator Chomp as he walks into Gators Dock side to greet patrons during an unscheduled stop on Saturday in Orlando. ROSA LLAMOAlligator Contributing WriterAfter closing in 2011, Alachua Countys Boys & Girls Club has its mentoring center back. About 100 Gainesville residents gathered Saturday to celebrate the reopening of the Boys & Girls Club of Alachua Countys Rotary Campus & Mentor Center. The center, located at 1100 SE 17th Drive, provides free academic tutoring to students in kindergarten through third grade. The center closed due to funding issues and a lack of space, said Liz Martin, the director of the Mentor Center. The new Mentor Center receives its primary funding from the Community Foundation of North Central Florida, Martin said. The center is focusing its attention on the Lincoln Heights neighborhood in Gainesvilles east side, which is historically known as a low-income area. It expects to give individualized instruction to students from nearby schools, including Joseph Williams Elementary School. Parents and guardians brought their children to the event Saturday to sign them up for mentoring programs. Another organization, Kids Count in Alachua County, offered free after-school programs, which provide help for reading and social skills. Fewer than 50 percent of Alachua County low-income students who went graduate this year, according to a Kids Count press release. Our short-term goal is to get kids on or above grade level, said Jessica Belcoure, a program assistant for Kids Count. Mary Banks, a 53-year-old Gainesville resident, was among those who stood in line. Banks signed up her grandchildren, ages 5, 7 and 9, for mentoring help. She gained custody of the children, but she lost her job of 35 years a few months ago. She said she wants her grandchildren to get extra help but doesnt always have time to help all three by herself. This is some hope, she said.Mentoring center offers hope to low-income area OBAMA, from page 1 Our short-term goal is to get kids on or above grade level.Jessica Belcoureprogram assistant for Kids Count SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff Writer of qualifying last semester.

The Students Party inter viewed 26 students on Friday, Students Party Campaign Manager Dave Bradshaw said. He said the party is not making any decisions until it sees every possible candidate. We have good candidates in over half the seats already, Bradshaw said. But we certainly need more. The Swamp Party, which was created by former Unite Party senators, interviewed 40 students Friday, Swamp Party Spokesman Daniel Landesberg said. He said the party is still trying to get the word out, but he expects more students to interview today and Tuesday. What we are really looking for is quality, not quantity, he said. Hannah Kaufman, who hopes to represent view with a party. The 18-year-old political science freshman said shell most likely run as an independent senator. I dont think I identify with a party yet, Kaufman said. I feel there is a lot of Greekversus-non-Greek tension and, even though Im Greek, I dont want people to see me that way for political reasons. Students will be able to vote for their student representatives Oct. 2 and Oct. 3.

The history stirs up feelings and triggers more symptoms, she said. New trauma stirs up old trauma. UFs counselors understand stress doesnt always come from trauma. Benton recommended any student feeling stressed visit the center to help them cope. Appointments can normally be made by phone, but students who feel like they are in a crisis can simply come in and see an on-call counselor, she said. Counseling can help students manage the anxiety that often accompanies the start of classes. Thats a feeling architecture freshman Katie Fisher has experienced. I had a freak-out moment on Fisher has managed to keep her job at Outback Steakhouse, but she said shes been forced to cut her nights a week to one or two. To keep stress levels down, Benton said students should exercise and taking walks can also help. Most people have things to do to relieve stress, but when they get really busy, they tell themselves, I dont have time. I dont have time. I dont have time, she said. The reality is, if they did do those activities, their study time would be productive, their memory more concentrated and they would learn more material more quickly.

Paul Lyin Dont compare Paul Ryan and Joe Biden Biggest difference between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan? Charisma. Theyre each hitting the campaign trails harder now that both national conventions are over. But their approaches are starkly different. Ryans had to explain what he actually meant by his totallyran-a-marathon-under-two-hours claim; its been so long since he ran one that he wasnt sure what a normal time was anymore. I hurt my back when I was about 23 or 24, and I had to quit running. I herniated a disk in my back, Ryan said. So Ive just lost perspective on what normal times are. I ran an ordinary race, and I thought the answer I gave was an ordinary time. Obviously it wasnt. Because a good amount of Ryans speech at the Republican on the defense on as many talk shows that would take him. To sum up his experience on CBSs Face the Nation: Norah ODonnell would ask Ryan a question about a past vote that contradicted what he says now; Ryan would tell her she was wrong, and then launch an attack on President Obama, according to the Chicago Tribune. Ryan continues to avoid giving any actual details that a Romney/Ryan tax plan would contain. On ABCs This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Stephanopoulos asked how the Republican ticket would keep its tax plan revenue neutral without getting rid of middle-class tax deductions, a topic Bill Clinton mentioned in his speech during the Democratic National Convention; when Ryan quibbled on an answer, saying something about how most of the studies on their tax plan have been discredited, Stephanopoulos asked if he We want to have this debate in the public, Ryan said. He put it before Congress. Biden, on the other hand, is just being Biden and loving it. The last time I was here I didnt get arrested, but I almost did, said Biden to a crowded community center in Ohio. When he was on the University of Delaware football team in 1963, he was invited into one of the womens dormitories on campus. I thought I was walking into the waiting room. I got brought into the hallway. And I got escorted out very quickly by an Athens policeman. True story, unfortunately, Biden said. His genial stops around the country are dotted with personal anecdotes that are not only hilarious and engaging but also true. Thats more than we can say for Ryans personal stories or political facts. Fundamentally, it seems like Romney and Ryan are disconnected from what real people actually want: funny and honest stories about almost getting arrested. Not when they bring you a lie sandwich served with a side of lies but forget the truth platter you ordered at the window.Musical artists focus on dollars, not beatsThursday night, MTV aired its annual Video Music Awards. Predictably so, it featured a joking Kevin Hart, performances of various calibers and debatable choices in award recipients. However, while watching different clips of the evening, what I noticed most was how much the network has changed from what it used to be. Its a well-known truth that MTV took its main focus off music long ago. For the past few years, the only time Ive ever really watched the network has been for music videos broadcast late at night or into the early morning and to see interesting episodes of the documentary series True Life. After The Real World debuted, reality shows, scripted dramas and programs that seemed like outrageous combinations of the two somehow stole virtually all of the networks airtime. The evolution of the channel brings me to how much music as a professional industry has changed since years ago. The other day, one of my Pandora radio stations began to play an a cappella Boyz II Men track. I was taken aback when I realized music used to sound like that, let alone that it actually could. Compared to what had been playing on the station before, the three-minute track opened my ears to some of the most refreshing vocals I had heard in a while. Every musical act wont sell 60 million albums worldwide like this R&B group, but I do wish todays music required and showed more effort from writers, producers and vocalists than it does. Artists have become very comfortable with the fact that they can take in so much revenue from endeavors outside of recording music. According to a recent article in Forbes, Dr. Dre is now the richest man in hip-hop, earning $110 million in the last year, not because of making beats, but because of sales of his high-priced Beats headphones. The story also mentioned how stars like Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj managed to bring in millions with the help of several product endorsements. You may have recently seen their heavily circulated commercials endorsing Mountain Dew and Adidas, respectively. Forbes looked at income from touring, record sales, publishdorsements and other ventures. The minority of those categories focus explicitly on the music these entertainers create. Its obvious that a multiplatform approach is the way to make the most money, but music artists should still feel a need to produce quality material. I frequently reminisce and feel as though things were much better in the late s, when I was a kid, compared to how they are now. TV, movies and music especially had a special something about them that allow us today to call them our favorites and refer to them as classics. Musical artists used to be, well, artists. Each individual or group had its own unique identity that set it apart from others. Oddly enough, todays biggest musical acts are the most well-known for the most shallow reasons. be seen in the current music market. The boy band has reemerged with groups such as The Wanted and One Direction successfully capitalizing on younger consumers. The hip-hop entourage has returned with crews like Kanye Wests G.O.O.D. Music, Rick Ross Maybach Music Group and Lil Waynes Young Money. If only the same quality of music from years past was also duplicated.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Jelani Jenkins injured his thumb in Saturdays win, while many other Gators dealt with aches and cramps. See story, page 16.Poll QuestionWill Floridas conservative offense work against other Southeastern Conference teams? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Gameday Heads to KnoxvilleESPN College Gameday will be in Knoxville, Tenn., for UFs game against Tennessee on Saturday. The show is visiting a Gators Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel (6) was sacked eight times against Texas A&M on Saturday due to a combination of questionable decision-making and porous offensive line play. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer COLLEGE STATION, Texas Texas A&M led the nation with 51 sacks last season, and Florida failed to slow down the Aggies on Saturday. The Gators surrendered eight sacks in a 20-17 victory in their Southeastern Conference opener at Kyle Field. Well correct it, right guard James Wilson said. We dont know who its on really. Whatever it is, well get it right so it doesnt happen again. back, Jeff Driskel completed 13 of 16 passes with two drops for 162 yards. However, Driskel tended to hold onto the ball too long in the face of an oncoming pass rush. On multiple occasions, he scrambled out of bounds for a loss. I do think he couldve gotten rid of the ball at times, but there were some protection issues, Florida coach Will Muschamp said. They have two good edge rushers. They led the country in sacks last year. They do have some guys that can rush the passer. We had a busted route on one sack. Perhaps the instance that spelled the most trouble for UF was a thirdand-7 play on the Texas A&M 28Chased by Aggies defensive end Spencer Nearly, who had two sacks on Saturday, Driskel was forced out of bounds for a 5-yard loss. As a result, Gators kicker Caleb Sturgis had to attempt a 51-yard right for a miss, but fortunately for Florida, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin called a timeout before the play in an attempt to ice Sturgis. Sturgis made the second kick to cut the Aggies lead to 17-10. After the game, Muschamp said Driskel would need to work on getoncoming rushers approaching. No, Im not going to live with that, Muschamp said. He needs to get rid of the football. Sacks killed Floridas momentum on multiple offensive possessions. On third downs, Driskel had six rushes for negative-15 yards, including four sacks. Driskel took sacks on back-to-back plays to end two drives. Its on us, Wilson said. Obviously, thats what it came down to, Driskels poor decisions result in eight sacks BEHIND TYMRAKS GAME-TYING GOAL, FLORIDA BEAT NEW MEXICO 3-2 ON SUNDAY IN GAINESVILLE. ADAM LICHTENSTEIN Alligator Writer Maggie Rodgers knew Erika Tymrak was going to score. With Florida trailing New Mexico 2-1 and the team in the locker room during a lightning delay, Rodgers was sure tie the game. I had this feeling, Rodgers said. It was like the weirdest thing. We were all sitting in the training room, and I was like Oh my gosh, Erikas going to score. [I] went up to her, told her it maybe like eight times, until she was like OK, I get it Maggie, Im going to score. Rodgers ended up being right. About a minute after the game restarted, Tymrak turned a pass from Annie Bobbitt into Floridas second goal of the day. The Gators would add a goal from Holly King in the 66th minute and defeated the Lobos 3-2 on Sunday afternoon in James G. Pressly Stadium in Gainesville. The Gators improve to 3-21 with the win in advance of Fridays matchup with Kentucky in Lexington. Floridas defense struggled early in the match. All-America defender Kathryn Williamson missed Sundays game and will be out meniscus, according to coach Becky Burleigh. [Williamson] is such a Rodgers vision realized in UF win THE ADAM BOMBCOLLEGE STATION, TexasWill Muschamp walked into his post-game press conference dripping sweat with a white towel wrapped around his neck. He looked worn out from another close game. For the second week in a row, ter with the games outcome still in doubt. Being boring isnt easy, but it works. I know I got killed for last week, but theres a reason why we did it, because we had a superior football team than Bowling Green, Muschamp said. Nothing against those guys, but we needed to play that way in order to play that way this week in this ballgame.

it came time for the Gators to play hardnosed football, they were ready. And if they want to be a winning team in the SEC, theyll need to be. This is kind of who we are, Muschamp said. I know nobody wants to hear that, but thats the facts of life. Sometimes youve got to put your realistic glasses on and see who you are. Who the Gators were last year was a soft, weak bunch unable to handle the grind of a full season. Muschamp hopes this years group is entirely different, and Saturdays come-frombehind effort is a step toward that goal. I dont even remember the last game we won from behind, actually, in my six years, guard James Wilson said. Usually we dont win when were down. Texas A&M took a 10-point lead with 7:01 remaining in the second quarter on Christine Michaels 1-yard touchdown run. minutes behind redshirt freshman quarter back Johnny Manziel. At halftime, Manziel was 16-of-20 for 141 yards, plus nine carries for 41 yards and a score. Texas A&Ms offense and 269 yards without having to punt. Facing a quarterback and offense no one had ever seen before at the college level, Floridas defensive linemen were trying to up running lanes for the mobile Manziel. There was no magic potion, Muschamp said. It was crystal clear. At halftime, I told again. Sit on the line of scrimmage, squeeze blocks inside of you and quit running up the The Gators took that message to heart, forcing three-and-outs on four of the Aggies Texas A&M averaged 5.8 yards per play in the second. Jeff Driskel was sacked eight times but and both Gators touchdowns. It was just winning the line of scrimmage, linebacker Jon Bostic said. We half. Once we made those adjustments, we were back to playing Florida football. Back to grinding it out, back to controlling the line of scrimmage and back to winning. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. 14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2012 Gillislee carried 14 times for 83 yards and two scores against Texas A&M. Although he likely wont reach his lofty goals of 1,500 yards and 24 touchdowns, his 231 yards, 6.1 yards per carry two games make those numbers seem feasible. Florida 20, Texas A&M 17 With Floridas offense sputtering and the Gators down by 4 in the fourth quarter, Jeff Driskel found Omarius Hines on a corner route for a 39-yard gain down to Texas A&Ms 18-yard line.

and thats what its going to be a lot. If you want to be dominant in the SEC, you have to have a solid offensive line. Were ready to take on the challenge. The Gators averaged 3 yards per carry on the way to 142 yards in the ground game on Saturday. They lost 48 yards on eight sacks and 9 yards on two kneel-downs on the games Subtract the sacks, and Florida aver aged 4 yards per carry for 190 yards. on Saturday, Muschamp did not condemn sacks. He took care of the ball, Muschamp said of Driskel. He didnt try to make a throw. He ate the ball. Theres good sacks, too. Theres nothing wrong with ending a series with a punt. I know thats not allowed to be said at Florida, but theres nothing wrong with that, alright? Theres some positives in that. UF will try to minimize sacks against Tennessee in Knoxville, Tenn., next weekend. Last season, the Volunteers ranked second-to-last in the SEC and 107th nationally with just 15 sacks. Dont put it on one guy for a sack, Muschamp said. Theres a lot of differ ent things that go into a sack. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida running back Mike Gillislee (left) ran for 83 yards and two scores on Saturday against Texas A&M. Minus eight sacks, the Gators ran for 190 yards. Aside from sacks, Florida rushing game thrives great player and such a big loss for our team, so theres such big shoes Williamson on the back line.

On offense, Florida missed out on several opportunities early in the game. the eighth minute, and junior Adripost in the 35th minute. with six shots but had not registered a shot on goal. Sophomore Annie Speese tied the game at 1 four minutes into the second half, but the Lobos pulled back ahead seven minutes later. The real spark in Floridas offense came after the game was delayed 50 minutes due to lightning. Tymrak tied the game in the 60th minute, and then King delivered the winning goal on a header off a free kick from Jo Dragotta. Its a big win, King said. We didnt exactly play the way that we wanted to play, but its a good win before going into [Southeastern Conference] play, and well be ready by then. DRISKEL, from page 13 SOCCER, from page 13UF offense struggles in surges latea game manager got the job done. This isnt your fun n gun or spread-option offense. This is old-school Southeastern Conference football. Were going to have a lot of games like this now, Muschamp said. Thats just who we are. Were going to grind it out. Were going to win, and thats what we kind of are as a mentality as a football team as we continue to grow and mature through the year. Whether the Gators can bully teams to victory remains unclear. UF played an outmatched Mid-American Conference team and an A&M with a new coaching staff. Right now, UF looks like the 11-year-old who picks on the second-graders. Grinding against teams like Georgia and LSU is unrealistic personnelwise, but the Gators have the attitude down pat. When Florida was down by 10 with seven minutes left in the second quarter, there wasnt any panic on the sidelines. The Gators knew their objective in College Station win the fourth quarter. Depth hurt the Gators in 2011, and Muschamp said they might not have won this type of game last season. Redshirt senior left guard James Wilson, the elder statesman, doesnt remember a time winning from behind in his six years at Florida. Until Saturday, the Gators hadnt rallied from a halftime champ. Florida generated nine minutes of offense in the fourth quarter, including running out We wanted to pound the ball, right guard Jon Halapio said. We wanted to run out wanted to gas the other side of the line of scrimmage. The Gators gained 44 yards on six straight rush attempts by Driskel, Mack Brown, and Solomon Patton to end the game. Happiest moment in Flor ida history for me that and the Ohio State game, Muschamp said. If the Gators are to have more satisfying wins in 2012, running back Mike Gillislee has to stay healthy. He left the game after an apparent groin injury following his fourth-quarter touchdown. Gillislee has four touchdowns, and UF running backs have 52 more rush attempts than the quarterbacks have pass attempts. It isnt pretty, and sometimes, its downright ugly. I told the guys at the end of the game, Were going to have to win some games like that this year. This is kind of who we are, Muschamp said. I know nobody wants to hear that, but thats the facts of life. Sometimes youve got to put your realistic glasses on and see who you are. only one condition coach if you win.

LINEBACKER LEFT IN THE FIRST QUARTER AND DID NOT RETURN. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer COLLEGE STATION, Texas Although the Gators opened Southeastern Conference play with a win Saturday, the physical toll it took on UF was immense. Amid a bunch of minor tweaks and cramps, the injury that appeared most serious was to the thumb of starting linebacker Jelani and returned to the sidelines in street clothes with his arm in a sling. Muschamp said after the game that he did not know the extent of the injury, but that Jenkins thumb had to be put into a cast. When asked how the defense would fare if it had to play without Jenkins for an extended in the other linebackers on the roster. Its a big loss, Bostic said, but theres some guys in this program that can play behind him. Antonio (Morrison), Mike Taylor, even (Darrin) Kitchens (can) move inside. Weve got some depth at the linebacker position too, where a lot of guys can play all differ ent types of positions. Play was stopped numerous times in Floridas 20-17 win over Texas A&M as several Gators went down with cramps and other injuries. Muschamp was even forced to use players in unusual packages, leading to a timeout before a punt attempt. We lost a bunch of guys in the game, Muschamp said. We were down to our third gunner at one point on punt return. I had to take a timeout to make sure the young man knew what to do. I wasnt sure he knew, and I would rather take the timeout and make sure he knew exactly what we were supposed to do in that situation. Right tackle Chaz Green, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, cornerback Marcus Roberson and Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray were among a large group of Gators who had to leave the game due to cramps. It was cooler than its been, Muschamp said of the weathers effect on cramps. Its a dryer heat. I didnt know we would have issues with cramps. Florida also suffered a handful of more sigJunior defensive back Cody Riggs left the game with a sprained foot, and starting free safety Josh Evans left the game with an undisclosed shoulder injury. with 83 rushing yards and two touchdowns, said he did not know what Gillislees injury was.
