Innovation Hub director Jane Muir credits the centers early success to entrepreneurs, employees and students who are investing their talents in Gainesville. She said UF and Santa Fe College students are taking full advantage of the 48,000-square-foot business incubator and its resources. Theyre getting involved in all kinds of ways, she said. Some of them are founding companies, some are interning and some are working for us. Glenn McGraw, 27-yearold CEO and co-founder of Gamedayr website, said without Innovation Hub, Gamedayr wouldnt have been able to grow. Due to resources and Hub provided his business, he has added more employees and interns to his staff. The website covers college gameday culture, including the SEC, the ACC and the Big 12.

SEE INNOVATION, PAGE 4 AUDREYANNA LOGUERREAlligator Contributing WriterUF received new solar panels that will act as a teaching aid for students while saving the university thousands of dollars a year. Progress Energy Florida gave the university a 100-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array for free through the SunSense Schools solar energy program, which aims to provide renewable energy education to Florida students. The solar panels will capture the suns rays and turn it into energy. The system will generate 157,000 kilowatt-hours a year and will reduce electricity costs by $15,000 a year, said Robert Sumner, a spokesman for PEF. This will allow the university to generate its own power and step away from other energies. The system costs about $65,000 and will allow the university to generate its own power and step away from other nonrenewable energy. The panels will be installed by Nov. 30 in three locations on campus. They will be south of the Microbiology and Cell Science building, University of Floridas Energy Research and Education Park and between the RinkerSchool of Building Construction and Broward Residential hall. Anna Prizzia, director of UF shows the universitys commitment to sustainability. Its an opportunity to use a solar energy as a teaching tool in classes and research, Prizzia said. Rinker School of Building Construction students will learn how to install the units as if they were working for a solar construction company. Allison Goldberg, a 19-yearold environmental geosciences sophomore, said she believes the campus is going in the right direction with the installation of the solar panels. Everyone knows what solar panels look like, but not what they do, she said. The solar panels will show that the campus is changing.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 John W. McLaughlin III / AlligatorShining TogetherFreshman LeAnn Meyer, 18, front, and freshman Katie Leigh, 19, attend a vigil for the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11 on the Plaza of the Americas. HE WILL STUDY THE VOODOO RELIGION. KATIE CAMPBELLAlligator Contributing WriterA UF assistant professor recently received about $240,000 to do research in Haiti. The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded Benjamin Hebblethwaite, who works in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, $240,804 the second-largest award it gave in Florida this year. Creating the Archive of Haitian Culture and Religion: Collaborative Research and Scholarship of Haiti and Haitian Diaspora is a collaborative academic effort led by Hebblethwaite. His co-director is Duke Universitys Laurent Dubois. During the project, Hebblethwaite will observe and document the voodoo religion in Haiti. Collecting songs used in rituals is one of the projects goals, he said. Many Haitians, some French anthropologists and others have gone to Haiti and recorded songs and transcribed them, he said. One of the major parts of this project [is] to gather and preserve this sacred literature of the voodoo religion. Thats the part that interests me the most. When Hebblethwaite learned he had won the award this summer, the projects focus was on collecting texts and interviews with priests and practitioners. Since then, Hebblethwaite and his colleagues have realized the importance of a new type of media audiovisual materials. The text is sort of like a snapshot divorced from real ritual. Likewise, a photograph is an instant in time, Hebblethwaite said. But voodoo is movement. Its a danced religion. Its a drummed religion. Its a sung religion. Richard Freeman, an assistant librarian at UF, will travel to Haiti with Hebblethwaite to collect audiovisual accounts of voodoo ceremonies. He said he thinks the pair will get there by November 2013. Though new to voodoo and the religious aspect of anthropology, Freeman said its exciting. Its what some academics would refer to as a sexy topic, he said. Its got that bit of exoticness to it. Its something more seriously that has not been studied that seriously by academics, or it has been but by a small group. With ceremonies lasting up to 10 hours and coming available, Hebblethwaite said the audiovisual aspect of the project is a new approach to studying Haitian voodoo. Hebblethwaite and Freeman will record as much as they can for any researchers who will access the archive in the future. place on a monthly basis for different spirits, and we want to collect all of those ceremonies in their full duration for the entire year, Hebblethwaite said. The project does not put the entire focus on voodoo, but includes religion as a whole in Haiti. Hebblethwaite said he will now have the opportunity to examine other religions. We know even less about Mormonism in Haiti, Hebblethwaite said, mentioning the lack of data about Freemasonry, Islam and Christianity on the island. Nobody is collecting audiovisual information from all of these different religions, he said. The grant expires in three years, at which It expands the project into possibly a lifetime of curation, Hebblethwaite said.Grant will allow prof to go to Haiti

EACH EVENT FEATURES A DIFFERENT. THEME. JARED GINSBURGAlligator Contributing WriterOn a warm Tuesday night under hot lights, Tom Hart took the microphone at Satchels Pizza. As the murmur of the audience quickly died down and heads looked his way, the 42-year-old Gainesville resident began to share a story of a French friends visit to America. The storytelling is part of a community-involvement endeavor at Satchels. On the second Tuesday of each month, the eclectic pizza restaurant hosts The Conch, an open mic night during which people tell true stories of hope, heartbreak and randomness. The event started July 10. Two months later, the event is still going strong, said event coordinator Bill Bryson, 46. The event is Brysons brainchild. As an amateaur storyteller, whose Southern upbringing created a lifelong love for storytelling, he acquired a collection of recorded stories as a child. As an adult, he began to listen to storytelling podcasts such as The Moth and This American Life. He said he wanted to spread his love of storytelling with the Gainesville community, so he started The Conch. rytellers spoke, and the same number spoke in August. Each night features a general theme. Past themes have included Every Dog Has Its Day, and Theres a First For Everything. Each night is recorded as a podcast and is available on Grow Radio, a local Internet radio station where Bryson works. Theres so much left to the imagination when someone is telling a story face to face, he said. Theres a real craft to storytelling. Freshman Ricky Marrero said he became interested in storytelling as a child. I love hearing personal stories, because they all have wisdom, Marrero, 18, said. As Larry Condra, a 58-year-old Gainesville resident, shared a humorous story about a car accident, the audience snickered at his story. As the sun set, and more people came to the microphone, Bryson said he saw his vision start to take shape. What fascinates me is the things that are revealed about the storyteller and about the circumstances, he said. It creates a sense of community and breaks down walls. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012Destiny Johnson / AlligatorSatchels Pizza bartender Jordan Borstelmann, 31, tells an anecdote at Grow Radios storytelling event, The Conch. After successful summer, Satchels storytelling nights continue JARED GINSBURGAlligator Contributing WriterA whats up? text. A smiling photo. A text with a heart. This might be the type of message you expect to receive other. But as UF students get into the swing of a busy school year, hovering parents are using their newfound smartphone skills to keep in constant communication whether their kids like the idea or not. My mom texts me all the time, said Jillian Guthrie, 18year-old microbiology and cell science freshman. I love my mom, and Im appreciative of all shes done, but I dont want to be constantly texting her. And its not just the texts. When freshmen log into Facetions arent from their BFFs. My mom will go on Facebook and message me and say, Jordyn, how do I do this? How do I do that? I dont know what Im doing! said 18-year-old psychology freshman Jordyn Middlebrooks. Then the texting starts. It starts off small, with, How was your day? Then it grows to reminders to call home. Before some students know it, parents are blowing up their childrens phones with little reminders Dont forget to tip your cab driver!! and photos of family pets. When she does text, its always 10 questions at a time, she said. The texting makes her mom feel more comfortable, Middlebrooks said, but sometimes she looks at the messages and cant help but groan. Mitchell McGahan, an said his mother continues to day. It is her way to say she misses him. As smartphones become more common and unlimited, the growing parental phenomenon has spread to upperclassmen, too. Junior Emily Thraen, 20, remembered her mothers separation anxiety from her freshman year vividly. Two years later, her mom still hovers. She posts and comments on every single thing I put on Facebook. But some students like the connection, saying technology aids in communication to simulate the face-to-face talk they had at home. Daniel Ditaranto, 19-yearold criminology and law freshman, said hes appreciative that technology makes it easy to contact his parents. The added communication makes things better, he said. I live four hours away, and it makes the gap smaller.Students not pleased by parents discovery of smartphonesC AMPUS JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterFor the next month, the best and the brightest university students will try to out-hack each other in the Hacker Games. The competition, which was designed to test students abilities to solve algorithms, image processing, data structures and ar Saturday and continues until Oct. 6. As of Tuesday night, UF had 54 members in the game and about three times as many points as its closest competitor, Purdue University. In fact, UF was winning the game Tuesday, ahead of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Duke University, Cornell University and Princeton University. Fourteen schools are competing, most of which are top-tier universities, said Alex Guthrie, a 21-year-old UF computer science senior whos playing the game. Joe Thuemler, a UF mathematics senior and campus ambassador for the game, said there are seven levels in the game. The levels get progressively harder very quickly, said the 21-year-old, who has been programming since he was 15. You can solve level one in a couple minutes if you are good. No one has made it past level four yet. Hackers can play from home and form groups to help solve each challenge. Right now, we are mostly working individually, but as the problems get harder, we will probably have to team up, he said.

Chosen companies are required to have semi-annual reviews. Melanie Battles, a 21-year-old UF statistics graduate student, is among several UF students who are interning at Innovation Hub. She started an internship with Gamedayr in May. Theres just a lot of startup companies here, she said, which is cool. McGraw, a UF engineering alumnus, said Innovation Hub staff has crucially assisted budding businesses. They are here for companies like us, he said. They couldnt be more helpful. The Innovation Hub will begin an undergraduate program in Spring called Innovation Academy. The program is an opportunity for students to attend UF on a Springthrough-Summer calendar, and gain work experience at Innovation Hub during the Fall semester. It is another aspect of Innovation Hub that will make UF students more marketable, Muir said. She also said it will help reinforce the Innovation Hubs theory that entrepreneurs dont need to be business majors. She said good entrepreneurs can vary from art majors to economics majors. More important, Muir assured students that the Innovative Acad emy wouldnt completely lose Fall Gators football tickets. They wont be in class, she said. But they will be allowed to buy football tickets. INNOV A TION, from page 1 Theres just a lot of startup companies here which is cool.Melanie BattlesUF graduate student

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterStudent Senators unanimously passed a bill re-allocating college and school Senate seats for Spring 2013 elections. The Senate also passed a bill to keep the district seats for the Fall 2013 elections the same. Students in the College of Jour nalism and Communications will be represented by two senators instead of one. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Pharmacy will each lose one senator, making their total numbers six and one, respectively. The undergraduate freshman class will add another senator for a total of four. After the meeting, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Cayman Weimer, said the numbers he used for both bills were based on data from Fall 2011. Weimer said evaluating the seats happens annually, and the numbers are always old. for doing it all at once, he said. A representative from the Gator Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People spoke to the Senate in support of a referendum asking students if they want to rename the Reitz Union after Virgil Hawkins. Hawkins was an African-American who was denied entrance into UF in 1949 due to his race. Student Nailah Summers said that as a black, Latina and queer woman, she could not turn a blind eye to J. Wayne Reitzs history of racism and homophobia described in the referendum. [It was] not OK 50 years ago, and its not OK today, she said. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffStudent Senate President Logan Harrison presides over the Student Senate meeting Tuesday night in the Reitz Union. Bill passed to re-seat Student Senate LAURA HOGANAlligator Contributing WriterUF is a Public Ivy institution, according to reports released last month on a college guide website. Educated Quest looked at UFs retention rates, graduation rates and tuition in comparison to those of private Ivy League schools, said Stuart Nachbar, the websites publisher and president. UF joined the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Virginia Tech and the Univer sity of Georgia on the 12-school list. Educated Quest also evaluated other factors, including curriculum, career services and the professional network public colleges provide against those at private Ivies like Yale University and Harvard University. Theres no question that the level of connections a student would make if they attended the University of Florida would be excellent, Nachbar said. at any one of them, according to Nachbars post on the website. But a school should not be considered a Public Ivy unless it makes the educational experience more economical for all of its students, not just the ones who qualify for its more prestigious academic programs or scholarships. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said he thinks calling UF a Public Ivy is accurate, considering the esteemed reputation Ivies typically enjoy. You get such a high quality of education at a fraction of the price of true Ivy League schools, Orlando said. The website required that colleges have a minimum 90 percent freshmen retention UFs is 96 percent, Orlando said and a minimum 75 percent six-year graduation rate UFs is 83 percent. In-state tuition and fees must not exceed one-third the rate of the least expensive Ivy, and out-of-state tuition rates must not exceed two-thirds of the most expensive Ivy. UF students had mixed reactions to the Biological engineering senior Nancy Nguyen, 20, said she doesnt think UF measures up to her perception of Ivies. I dont see it catering towards students as much as I hope a Ivy League [would], Nguyen said. However, 20-year-old Michele Fusco, a Spanish and political science senior, said the title makes her proud to be a UF student. I think that the Gator Nation has a big sense of community, and I think theyre going to offer a lot of the opportunities that Ivy Leagues do as well, Fusco said. Its very prestigious to go here.UF ranked as a Public Ivy institution according to college guide STUDENTS TEND TO CUT BACK ON SLEEP WHEN STRESSED. NOELIA TRUJILLOAlligator Contributing WriterStudents continue to sacrigrades, and UF counselors are trying to combat students misconceptions about a good nights rest. Sherry Benton, director of UFs Counseling and Wellness Center, said about 35 percent of students who go to the center retheir symptoms of stress. Students should get about seven to 10 hours of sleep a night to be at their best physically, emotionally, socially and academically, according to the GatorWell website. Emma Caldwell, a 19-yearold architecture sophomore, said she usually goes to bed at 2 a.m. and wakes up between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. On average, she said she gets about six hours of sleep a night. Im usually up working in the studio for architecture, Caldwell said, building models and drawing. Jane Emmere, health promotion specialist at GatorWell, said sleep consistency and routine are important for students to perform their best daily. The idea is for students to go to bed and wake up around the same time as often as possible. Sleep affects memory, she said. Good sleep quality and enough sleep help with whats called memory consolidation. GatorWell provides access to Sleeping in the Swamp: A Sleep Improvement Program, enabling students to watch a 13-minute video with sleeping tips, take a sleep self-assessment test and create an action plan to improve sleeping habits. Sleep campaigns have become popular on college campuses within the past decade because more research has come out showing sleeps importance to memory and academic performance, Emmere said. Students tend to cut back most on their sleep when theyre stressed or during highimpact exams, she said. However, this can cause students to perform poorly when test day comes around. They really deprive themselves of sleep around busy times, Emmere said. But when we cut back on our sleep, then we dont remember things as well, and it kind of snowballs.UF urges students to get some extra zzzs CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA Gainesville man allegedly broke into his girlfriends house and threatened to kill her while she was on the phone with police Monday night. neth Roy Coleman, 30, after he was found hiding under a bed.

Students shouldnt give up job searchThroughout the past several days, a disturbing statistic has emerged. This factor can potentially threaten the future livelihood of up to 50,000 people located in our stomping grounds UF. According to the Department of Labor monthly jobs report, almost 500,000 people ages 16 to 24 have stopped looking for jobs. This age group most notably concerns college students looking for internships as well as immediate positions following graduation. Overall, it appears that on a national scale, fewer job opportunities exist for college students. While there is no need to bring gloom to the forefront and foremost serve as a wake-up call. The stature of the situation may be reduced due to the fact that a majority of students have returned to school within the past month. Nevertheless, this report should serve as a warning that we all must act now while in college to make ourselves more marketable for future employment. At this point, with Election Day drawing nearer, we could argue and discuss which candidates economic policy will best serve college students following graduation. Instead, its more important than ever to consider how to maximize the UF experience so that none of us are included in this statistic in the near future. According to Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the Economic Policy Institute, there are less opportunities for them [students]. They have it rough. While this may or may not be true, we ought to take any opportunity on campus to grow as leaders, as students and as future employees. We often say there is no time like the present. As college students, this is very easy for us to do. However, there is no doubt that while enjoying our college experiences, we need to at least plan for the future. We should set obtainable yet meaningful long-term goals. While pursuing our hobbies and passions, we need to look down the road into the future and ask ourselves where we want to be at the conclusion of the UF experience. It is of the utmost importance to have the ambition and drive to take action to make that goal come to fruition by pursuing professional development as well as leadership opportunities. There is literally no time to waste if we truly want that competitive edge in the job market. Because various political campaigns will spin the agenda and will attempt to blame our troubles on the opposition, regardless of economic conditions, it is essential to market ourselves positively and to seek that edge among our peers. Our most precious resource is time, and as college students, it should be our job to maximize it. The ball is in our court, and the choice is up to us to determine what we want out of college, and thus, where we want to be following graduation. At the end of the day, no jobs report positive or negative should alter our UF experience. Regardless, we must seize the day and create our own destiny by putting our future in our own hands so that we may maximize our time now to best serve us into the future. Matthew Schnur is an economics freshman at UF. His column runs on Wednesdays.Tough TeachersChicago educators It is eight weeks before Election Day. Do you know where your teachers are? On Monday, more than 20,000 teachers walked off the job in Chicago-area schools. This left hundreds of thousands of students with nothing to do, and parents with extra headaches. The teachers are striking mostly due to a precipitous decline in public school funding and rising public demand to use standardized test scores in teacher evaluations, according to the Los Angeles Times. A law passed in Illinois in 2010 stated that standardized test scores should be factored into teacher reviews and evaluations. Those scores will account for up to 30 percent of teachers evaluations by 2014. The educators feel that is too much weight. There are a lot of factors that go into a childs education that Children are more to me than their test scores. This protest is in President Obamas hometown; his backyard, his stomping grounds. It doesnt shed a positive light on the relationship between teachers unions and the Democratic Party. Our principal concern is for the students, and his principal concern is for the students and families who are affected by the situation, White House spokesman Jay Carney said. And we hope that both sides are able to come together to settle this quickly and in the best interest of Chicagos students. Some parents blame teachers for the consequences of their strike. Rachelle Cirrintano, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, worried about her son. There was no reason to do this when they just got situated, she said. All the teachers should be let go for their irresponsibility to the children and their families. Should we criticize the teachers for speaking out about the wrongs they feel they have been dealt? Or do we empathize with them for wanting to be treated fairly and to reach justice? Its tough to understand teachers who go on strike after the school year has already started, but if you ask them, this could have been resolved a while ago.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the EditorDear Chip, After reading your article on Tuesday, titled Professors take the easy way out, too, I felt compelled to write this letter. Where do I even begin? Clearly, you have opinions about textbooks and their relationship with your college education. There must be some deep-seated reason you wrote this article beginning with a rant about textbook prices and royalty fees, but thats an entirely different story for a different day. fectively single out a distinguished professor of the universitys Department of Geological Sciences, who has a Ph.D. in geology and is not some aloof archaeologist. You claim he wrote his own textbook and supplemental lege students, and that he is fully aware that students are sharing test questions to get an easy A. Did you ever consider talking to the professor about why he chose to write his own content for his class? Or did that overprivileged, smart-aleck brain of yours just tell you to write a defamatory article behind a professors back and think it was a brilliant idea? The fact is, youve done nothing but prove yourself a fool here. You called out a student for having the gall to complain about not getting away with cheating when students previously had no problem cheating at all. Yet you openly admit you had the gall to write obscene language on your chemistry lab report. What possessed you to do such a thing? As a senior in college, Id like to think youre not that immature, but youre not helping your case here. The fact is nearly every college textbook youre required to use is written by either current or retired college professors somewhere in the world, a fact that you apparently have no grasp of. Your article also references professors taking the easy way out. You mention this plurality of human beings, yet you proceed to single out one professor in a school of tens of thousands of students. You can have your opinion of textbooks and their relationship to your college career. You can have your opinion of college professors, cheating and people taking the easy way out. That much you are entitled to. There are legitimate ways to express your opinions about topics such as these, and even work to create solutions to these issues you seem to have about textbooks. However, your actions and attitude here in this article prove that you are doing everything but that. The bottom line is, you are an unprofessional, uneducated, over-privileged student who apparently thinks that writing defamatory articles against university faculty, with no substance Chip, you wont get anywhere in this world with the attitude you have here. I think an ofto in your article is in order. And publish it in the Alligator. Lets see if you can learn how to act like a professional journalist, or if youre just another stuck-up college brat like your article seems to convey. Regards, Guriel Zeigerman Senior B.S. Geology Major department of Geological SciencesAs a product of the 90s teen pop revolution, it is Spears in my writing. Its not my fault for wanting to. Shes the divine matriarch of pop music, and everyone has been doing it since I was 11. Before her triumphant return to pop prominence, Brit-tizzle opted to remake Bobby Browns My Prerogative, setting the stage for a number of decisions that left her salivating legions confounded and concerned. her personal truth can exist apart from the truth of those around her. The philosophical undertones of the song echo an increasingly popular view in our modern society, and Im intrigued. This begs a few questions: Is truth relative? Can morality be subjective? Do right and wrong exist? objective, with their foundations being set on the idea that good and evil concretely exist in our world. Other streams of thought differ. Moral relativism, or postmodernism, is the idea that there is no absolute moral and ethical standard for humans to conform to. In essence, it is impossible even judgmental to distinguish wrong from right, because every individual is different, having had a subjective life experience. This leaves me with some nagging questions. I understand the unsettling implications of ascribing to an absolute standard in this age of tolerance. Our society is always complaining about whats wrong with the world. Gossip is wrong if were the ones being gossiped about. Cheating on your spouse is wrong. Embezzling money from a company designed to help retirees is wrong. Having children without health care is wrong. We are great at calling a spade what it is, arent we? It seems that we are constantly appealing to each other from some unspoken standard of fairness and justice, as though it were written in the fabric of our consciousness. We lack consistency in our convictions. I understand if the idea of the Bible, the Quran or the Vedas nauseates you, but if were honest with ourselves, weve only replaced these ancient standards with a common sense that is only common to ourselves. Bluntly speaking, most relativists arent relativists. Im probably overreaching, but Ive only had the pleasure of meeting one person in my lifetime who truly believed that nothing was right or wrong, including rape or murder. Bottom line: Some things are relative, and some things like mathematics are absolute. Is morality of the former or the latter? Can truth be bent to the will of the person wielding it? Even more perplexing, what if your truth says my truth is a lie? Still, a larger question remains: In whose standard should we trust? Oops, I did it again. Ryan Galloway is a religion senior. His column appears on Wednesdays.Right or wrong? Its all relativeColumn With the Republican and Democratic National Conventions completed and the party bases energized, the real campaigning begins as the candidates focus their efforts more aggressively on swing states. The Democratic Party has demonstrated that it knows how to rally its base and energize support. In light of post-convention polling, the same cannot be said for the Republican Party. Gallup reported that Obama leads Romney by about 4 percent signals a bump for Obama since the DNC, it is far from a large enough cushion to promise re-election. To ensure that Obama has a one-term presidency, Romney must put an end to his stale campaign strategy. He needs to brand himself as the best candidate for the job, rather than merely as an acceptable alternative to Obama. Romney must invigorate his campaign by discussing policy before the national debates in October, and explain how his platform will revive the economy, help the Despite Obamas recent gains, Romney has plenty of time to exploit the less-than-stellar job report thats release this week was unfortunately timed to be the same day as Obamas acceptance speech. Although the unemployment rate fell by .2 percent, the decrease is due in part to the fact that fewer Americans are actively searching for work. Only 96,000 jobs were created in August, compared with the 153,000 average jobs per month last year. Despite Obamas convention speechs energy, the jobs report does little to support his efforts to defend his economic plan. In response to the new unemployment numbers, the Romney campaign would be wise to target advertising in swing states where unemployment is the highest. This brings to mind a few key toss-up states: Nevada, Florida and North Carolina. Nevada suffers from a 12 percent unemployment rate, while Florida and North Carolinas rates are at 8.8 percent and 9.6 percent, respectively. These battleground states will provide the best return on investment if Romney chooses to advertise aggressively. We know where the president stands, and we know the policies he wants to put in place. Romney has been all rhetoric and no discussion. While his RNC speech was inspiring for Republicans, it failed to connect policy objectives with the RNCs 30 million viewers many of whom were moderates and independents. If George W. Bush was able to galvanize support from his base tainly can obtain an edge on Obama in these next two months. After both conventions, Americans understand that Obama and Romney are great husbands, fathers and friends, but whats important now is to end the ideological warfare and commence the rebuilding of this nation.

Tickets to see Seinfeld live Nov. 2 at the Phillips Center for the Per forming Arts go on sale Friday at noon. Todd Taylor, public relations representative for UF Performing Arts, said there is no student pricing for the event. Students, along with the general public, may purchase seats in the balcony and upper boxes for $64, or in the mezzanine, orchestra and pit for $79. ager Robbie Stevens said the show will probably sell out quickly, like it did when Seinfeld performed at UF in 2008. Even though many college students were toddlers at the height of Seinfelds TV comedy success, Stevens said hell garner name recognition around Gainesville. Any time you can get a name like Jerry Seinfeld in your community and city, I think thats a good thing, Taylor said. He said fans from other areas of the state are likely to come if other Florida tour stops sell out. Taylor said the university was to campus. Im just really excited because I didnt think Id ever get a chance to see him doing stand-up, said Severin Walstad, a 21-year-old public relations senior. The only thing thats going to keep students from going is probably the ticket price.

ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing WriterThe deadline for the Gainesville Photography Contest is Sunday. Participants can submit up to 10 photographs, according to the contest rules posted on the City of Gainesville website. Entries should be composed according to the contest theme, which is My Gainesville is... The rules state the photos should represent Gainesvilles culture beyond UF. This contest brings the community together, contest organizer Laura Rawson said, and makes people want to get involved with the government while having fun because, as you can imagine, government-sponsored activities are not always the most fun thing to do. The photographs must be submitted electronically via the City of Gainesville website, the citys Flickr group or email. Submissions should include the photograph, the location, the photographers name and contact information. Photos must be submitted by midnight on the due date. However, if 500 photographs are already submitted, the contest may close sooner. The grand prize does not include money due to budget limitations, Rawson said. The winners photophotos, will be displayed in a photo exhibit inside the Hippodrome State Theater in 2013.Photo contest seeks submissions by Sunday ANDREA CARROZAlligator Contributing WriterThe man New York Magazine once called the most famous narc in America thinks marijuana should not be legalized but the editor of High Times magazine disagrees. The two will hash out the national issue at UF during the Accent Speakers Bureau event The Great Weed Debate: Heads vs. Feds. It will take place at 8 p.m. Sept. 24 in the University Auditorium. The event will feature veteran Drug Enforcement Administration agent Bob Stutman and High Times editor Steve Hager. The men have a history of debate against each other, said Accent chairman Josh Holtzman. The two debated at UF in 2002. We thought it would be a good idea to rekindle the debate, especially since students werent here to see it ten years ago, Holtzman said. event this semester. It will cost the organization $10,000, Holtzman said, and correlates with future programs surrounding implications after elections. He said Stutman and Hager will bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, facts and things that might not always come up when this issue is discussed. These factors could sway some students opinions. Mechanical engineering sophomore Alexandro Gonzalez, 19, said he used to disagree with smokers, but is now more accepting. Everyone has their own choice, Gonzalez said. Some students say its a stress reliever. Some do it to escape problems. The NORML Gators, an or ganization that works to reform marijuana laws, supports safe marijuana use. The president of the organization, Guy Andrew Ginton, said he plans to attend the debate. No person in their right mind will defend the drug war as being successful, Ginton said. It is impossible, since it would require defending hundreds of thousands of innocent deaths. Biology junior Michelle Catania, 20, said she thinks its a good idea that Accent is providing representation for both sides of the issue. Hopefully itll be more civil than current presidential commercials, which bash each other, she said.Experts to debate marijuanaSeinfeld We thought it would be a good idea to rekindle the debate, especially since students werent here to see it ten years ago.Josh HoltzmanAccent Chairman THE ASSAILANT HAD BEEN HARASSING THE VICTIM ABOUT HER BOYFRIEND FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterAn argument about an ex-boyfriend led to the ar rest of a Gainesville woman accused of chasing a woman twice once with a hammer and again with two wooden sticks. Gainesville Police charged Celestia Vanessa Howard, 44, Sunday night with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to a GPD arrest report. The report gave the following account: At about 5 p.m. Sunday, Twana Robinson, 39, confronted Howard about her boyfriend. The argument escalated when Howard went into her apartment, grabbed a hammer from the kitchen drawer and chased Robinson through the Gardenia Gar dens apartment complex at 1727 NE Eighth Ave. During the chase, Robinson fought back, knocking the hammer from Howards hand before Howards boyHoward then went back into her apartment, changed her clothes and armed her self with two 2-foot wooden sticks. She then chased Robinson out of the complex. When police got to the Howard and arrested her about three blocks away from the complex.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Camilla Hedberg won college career in the See story, page 15.Gators in the NFL David Carr / Alligator StaffTight end Jordan Reed (11) breaks a tackle during Floridas 27-14 win against Bowling Green on Sept. 1 ADAM PINCUS Will Muschamp always wears his realistic glasses. After using that phrase following Floridas win against Texas A&M to explain the development of UFs run-based attack, Muschamp said the same treatment shouldve been applied to tight end Jordan Reed last season. Although the former quarterseason at tight end, he missed two games with a hamstring injury. Now he is Floridas leading receiver. I know we all think that because Rivals put 48 stars by their name, OK, so theyre supposed to just be an outstanding football player the moment they walk on campus, Muschamp said. It takes a process to become a good player, and just because youre a great athlete doesnt mean youre going to be a really good football player. Sometimes it takes time. ured out his position. He leads all receivers with eight receptions and 92 yards. Quarterback Jeff Driskel said he enjoys having a 6-foot-3 tight end with explosive speed and elusive ability. Reed turned a crossing route in the second quarter into a 30-yard gain Floridas second-longest pass play against the Aggies. problem if they have to bring down linebackers or safeties on him, Driskel said. Ill take him one-on-one with anybody. Hes ball in his hands. After dealing with drops last season, Reed has caught every ball thrown his way. Since arriving in Gainesville in 2009 as a four-star dual-threat quarterback from New London, Conn., Reed has tried to become a better blocker by improving his strength and toughness. This is his second year of playing the tight end position, Muschamp said. The natural process Reed growing into tight end role, leads Florida in receiving SEE TIGHT ENDS, PAGE 14 ADAM LICHTENSTEIN nitely due to a torn right meniscus, the Gators will look to a pair of seniors to anchor the defense. King and Jo Dragotta, will look to solidify the Gators back line when the team begins its Southeastern Conference schedule this weekend. They play a big role in our defense, for sure, coach Becky Burleigh said. As holdtween our back line and the forwards. Dragotta and King will play in front of a younger backline made up of former forward Taylor Travis, junior Maggie Rodgers (who just returned from a left ankle sprain) and underclassmen Tessa Andujar, Annie Bobbitt and Christen Westphal. Its so much fun to watch them grow, Dragotta said. Christen, from the very beginning of the season until now, its just ridiculous how much shes grown, to see her Bobbitt, just her being thrown back into center back, and shes already composed. Im comfortable with them and the ability to affect the game on both offense the season against New Mexico on Sunday. However, in the Gators 4-3-2-1 formation, the defensive side of the ball. Dragotta has not scored a goal in her time at Florida. assuming larger role for UF UF Soccer END OF GREGULATION Florida has only four sacks in the be without 2011 sack leader Ronald Powell for the rest of the year, but its not time to panic just yet. Lerentee McCray and Dante Fowler Jr. are more than capable of replacing Powells contribution, which was overrated. The Gators lack of early production is owed much more to the systems theyve faced than anything theyre doing wrong. I hate to write ill of a player who coaches say has worked harder than anyone theyve ever seen to return from a torn ACL suffered in Floridas spring game on April 7, but its important to be realistic. The 6-foot-4, 244-pound Powell has yet to fully harness the athleticism that keeps talent evaluators drooling and made him the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2010. Sure, he has the potential to become one of the games most dynamic passrushers. And yeah, he led the team with six sacks in 2011. But take a closer look at those plays: -FAU, second quarter, third-and-18: Powell is picked up in protection by a back and neutralized until Dee Finley and Jaye Howard narrowly miss a sack, at which point the quarterback is forced into Powells waiting arms. and-goal: Nobody so much as looks at Powell, who gets the easiest half-sack of his life on a busted screen play. Loss of Powell should not concern Gators defense Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca Ill take him one-on-one a guy we want to get the ball in his hands.Jeff DriskelUF quarterbackSEE SOCCER, PAGE 14 SEE GREG, PAGE 14QuotableWe all wanted him to be like (Mark) Bavaro out there.

and-3: The pocket disintegrates after nearly four seconds, and Powell gets credited with half of a sack for being on top of the pile. Aaron Murray play-fakes, pump-fakes and scrambles to his right, where Powell is on containment duty. Powell makes a good keep Murray from getting the edge. Powell rips under the left tackle and although he doesnt beat him blocker backwards. Jordan Rodgers scrambles away, but Powell chases him down to force intentional grounding. Powell tries to blow past the left tackle on the outside and is Powell terback Braxton Miller nearly six seconds after the ball was snapped. Powell certainly made a few good plays, but he has yet to show true dominance. At no point did he execute sack in less than four seconds usually enough time for His six total sacks tied for No. 72 in the nation. He had only three other tackles for loss. His 32 total tackles were 10th on Florida. but hes replaceable. hes ready to play as a freshman. McCray is the type of The limited production this season is more a result of Floridas opponents, as Bowling Green and Texas A&M relied on timing passing attacks. Quarterbacks Matt Gators get torched and Bray looks comfortable in the pocket, then its time to panic.

Reed headlines a tight end group that includes freshman Kent Taylor, tion, Texas, due to an undisclosed injury. Coaches expect him to play seen time at the position. Trey Burton has caught four passes for 28 yard, while Hines has two catches for 46 yards. dinator Brent Pease said last week. They create matchups, especially can win consistently on. Reed causes problems for defenses and is the most consistent contributor among tight ends, Muschamp said. Pease, who wasnt happy with the number of touches Reed rethe juniors performance against the Aggies. Hes learning, Pease said. Hes doing a great job in the run game. Hes coming along, you nity for us to be able to put him in a lot of spots. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@ alligator.org want to win. now, so we know each other like the back of our hands, Dragotta said. Those two are so experienced and they really fun to watch them play together. Dragotta and King will play a crucial role in leading the Gators when they take on Kensaid. 14, ALLIGATOR 5.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterWhen Brent Pease took over as Floridas offensive coordinator in January, he had no idea what to expect from Mike Gillislee. Pease knew very little about the senior running back, but it didnt take long for Gillislee to make an impression. I didnt know Mike from whats happened in the past, and I didnt look at him that way, Pease said. I looked at him from what I saw in the spring. I knew in the spring, This kids got something. Gillislee has proved Pease right so far, leading the Southeastern Conference with 231 yards and four touchdowns in the Gators Gillislee scared Florida fans when he disappeared for the majority of the fourth quarter of Satur days win against Texas A&M with an undisclosed injury. Coach Will Muschamp said Monday that his starting running back suffered a strained groin but would be at full strength for Floridas game against Tennessee this week. Still, Muschamp said he would avoid overloading Gillislee in this weeks practices, and offensive coordinator Brent Pease said those limitations will help Matt Jones and Mack Brown, his primary backups. In any situation, whether hes a little sore or not, he understands his reps now as far as practice goes, Pease said of Gillislee. So he doesnt need as many. Thats where you try to get the other kids (involved) and build up their repetition base because hes taking so many and he gets such live situations in the game he doesnt need to continually take those. Driskel getting rid of the ball: The one glaring negative in an other wise solid performance for starting quarterback Jeff Driskel at Texas A&M was his failure to get the ball out of his hands in a timely fashion. Rather than throwing the ball an open receiver, Driskel ran out of bounds twice for a loss of yards, giving the Aggies two of their eight sacks. Ive got to get rid of the ball earlier and not lock in onto my is open and someone is coming at me and throw the ball away. However, on Tuesday, center Jonotthan Harrison said the offensive line should shoulder more of the blame for the sacks. Im just going to do my job, Harrison said. As an offensive line unit, were going to do our job just to ensure that we pick up as many people as we can for protecting the Pease happy with wide receivers: Floridas wide receivers were highly criticized in 2011, when the in passing offense. Floridas leading pass catcher at wideout so far this season is Frankie ceptions, but Pease said he doesnt mind not having a standout No. 1 at the position. I dont really think you necessarily have a No. 1 guy emerge because you want to have balance in those guys, Pease said. If you have balance, that means production is each guy. I dont want a defensive coordinator looking at it and saying Theyre throwing it to this guy all the time. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

Gillislee practicing despite injury; Driskel working to prevent sacksVOLLEYBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterFor the Gators volleyball team, black team colors this season. Sophomore outside hitter Noami rest of the season. The Gators added a pair of names to the list of injuries last weekend, as Taylor Brauneis suffered a mild concussion and Jackie Swalchick fractured her arm. Coach Mary Wise said she only held Brauneis out of Friday nights win against Jacksonville as a precaution, but added she is still worried about whether most of her players will be healthy Conference game against Arkansas on Friday. When asked if this was where Wise wanted her team to be going into SEC play, she said: Where we wanted them to be was healthy. But there are things you dont have control over. One is really our injuries. Brauneis played in 255 of 257 sets without missing a single match in her three-year career before sitting out the Gators three-set sweep of the Dolphins on Friday night with a mild concussion. The junior transfer was one of the main reasons the Gators switched to a 5-1 system, in which there is only one setter on the court at a time. Even after missing a full match, she still accounts for 76 percent of the teams assists and is on pace to have the most assists in one season since Angie Replacement setter Dana Backlund tallied 33 assists against the Dolphins. It was really nice to get a chance, Backlund said. My team did an awesome job of greeting me right in with open arms. It was a really nice oppor tunity. Despite the win and the chance to see a fresh face enter the game, Wise still wants a healthy Brauneis come SEC play. Its good for us to have Taylor healthy, she said. And because shes been running this system, the 5-1, now in her third year of her college career, shes so steady for us. And although the loss of outside hitter Swalchick is not as detrimental to the team, her absence with a fracture in her arm will force other players to step up. Wise said the freshmans injury only adds to the uncertainty that has grown since the beginning of the season. Still, sophomore Taylor Unroe said last weekends matches, with all the off-thecourt issues, were just the challenge the Gators needed. This was a great test, she said.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida center Jonotthan Harrison prepares to engage Texas A&M linebacker Jonathan Stewart in a block during the Gators 27-14 win against the Aggies on Saturday at Kyle Field. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterTexas A&Ms eight sacks against Florida on Saturday did not faze offensive coordinator Brent Pease. He believes the Gators offensive line is the strength of the team. You look at the sacks; we go back and study them, Pease said. Thats what everybody on the outside always looks at the sacks. Go back and look. Out of eight sacks, two of them were ones that we needed to have better protection. You cant put that on the O-line. Two weeks into the 2012 campaign, UF ranks last in the Southeastern Conference with nine sacks surrendered. Coach Will Muschamp and Pease both acknowledged that Jeff Driskel held onto the ball too long on several plays against Texas A&M. However, center Jonotthan Harrison, who Muschamp named Floridas offensive player of the game in the SEC opener, did not hold Driskel accountable for the sacks. We still are going to take the blame, just because we want to be a solid unit, Harrison said. We dont want to be considered the weakness of the team as a lot of people have been saying. Were just going to keep working to ensure that Driskels protected and we keep him safe throughout the season. Under the direction of new offensive line coach Tim Davis, the Gators have shown improvement in their run blocking. Excluding the 55 yards lost on nine sacks this season, UF has 81 carries for 417 yards an average of 5.1 yards per attempt. (Im) very pleased with the run game, Muschamp said. After suffering a groin strain during Saturdays win, Mike Gillislee may be limited this weekend against Tennessee. If the senior cannot handle a heavy load, the offensive lines run blocking will face a sigOur job is crucial, Harrison said. Its one of those positions all work, no credit and the more we work together, and the more were in these games, its just going to help us mesh as a unit even more.
