Read the story on page 8 AYANA STEWARTAlligator Contributing WriterJoy Steiner knew she needed to help put a stop to bullying when her teenage son was threatened through Facebook by his peers. Steiner, 34, said she eventually had to get police involved because the abuse was so bad. Its a real issue, she said. Theres nothing more important than how we treat each other. Steiner was one of about 300 people who attended an anti-bullying rally on Bo Diddley Community Plaza Wednesday. A march along University Avenue to the plaza preceded the rally. The Unity Day Rally, which was coordinated by the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding, focused bullying and unite the community. Mayor Craig Lowe, Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell and Alachua County School Board member Eileen Roy were among the featured speakers. Lowe said its unfortunate that students are bullied about race and sexual orientation. Bullying is cruel, harmful and detracts from the wealth of human resources in Gainesville, he said in an interview. We, in Gainesville, value every human being. We want Newberry High School freshman Brandi Gallo, 14, said teenagers can take steps to stop bullying in schools. If you see something happening, dont just ignore it, she said. Event organizer Heart Phoenix said she was proud to see Gainesville residents come together for this cause. Theyre standing up instead of standing by, she said. Phoenix, who is also the board president of River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding, said both bullies and victims suffer when the issue is ignored.

JASON ALEXANDER, WHO PLAYED GEORGE COSTANZA, VISITED UF ON WEDNESDAY. MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterWhen Jason Alexander was greeted by applause at UF Hillel on Wednesday afternoon, he wasnt sure if the crowd was clapping for him or his full head of hair. His hairpiece may have been fake, but Alexanders message was sincere; students should vote in the upcoming presidential election. Im not proud of it, but I didnt vote in most elections, he said to a crowd of about 70 people who gathered to hear him speak at the Gators for Obama event. I didnt think anyone would get elected and change things, he added later. Alexander told the audience that putting money in education and cutting costs to middle-class workers would stimulate the economy. He also warned attendees to be wary of Mitt Romneys austerity and trickle-down economics advocacies. investors, not workers, Alexander said. Nothing Mitt Romney has ever built or destroyed has helped that guy. He also spoke about protecting reproductive rights, improving Palestinian-Israeli relations and nominating Supreme Court justices. I truly believe what happens in this election will set the course for the next 20 years, he said. Thats most of your and my sons adult lives. rity to endorse Obama at UF.

Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset every day during the holy month of Ramadan. The event is also a fundraiser for groups that help the hungry and homeless.

They know the youth vote is impor tant, she said, and its important to get them excited for President Obama. McGovern said she supported President Obama because of his policy to keep student loan interest rates low. She and her twin sister took out loans to pay for classes. I know that I cant ask my parents to borrow money for college, McGovern said. Jon Beever, a 19-year-old economics freshman, said he wasnt surprised Alexander took time to speak to students.

BROCK SENGAlligator Contributing WriterIn a country founded on religious freedom, a Gallup poll showed that one a Mormon. Mitt Romney, a Mormon, will challenge the incumbent president, Barack Obama, a Christian, Nov. 6. Students stand on both sides of the argument of whether religion matters when it comes to the presidency. John Michael Yakulevich, a 20-yearold industrial and systems engineer ing junior, and Evan M. Eisenberg, a 24-year-old sociology and political science junior, both said if the candidate or she would have their votes, regardless of religion. They have opposing views when it comes to religions part in politics. Yakulevich said religion matters because note should be taken of everything about a candidate. Religion, for example, reveals some of the candidates moral values and why he stands where he does on certain issues, he said. Eisenberg disagrees. When it comes to voting for president, their religious beliefs are about as important to me as their shoe size, he said. Eisenberg said since the United States doesnt have one view, or one religion, he doesnt mind people who view gay marriage or abortion as wrong. However, Yakulevich and Eisenberg agree that religion doesnt make the president good. Its ridiculous, Yakulevich said. Where would this country be if we held those same standards for all job positions? This isnt the only time religion has played a part in politics. When John F. Kennedy ran for president, his religious views became an issue, mainly because he was Roman Catholic. Although Kennedy was a different Christian denomination from most, Laura Sjoberg, associate professor of political science, said this election is different. Catholicism was something that was well-known, and people werent sure if they liked it, she said. When it came to religion and politics, Sjoberg agreed with Eisenberg in the belief that religion should not be a part of politics. To me, the less religion there is in politics, the better, she said. She said that in theory, the U.S. is a secular country, but in practice, its a seen abroad. I think its about time we focus on the real issues that are haunting America, Eisenberg said.

Wednesdays poll results are unavailable July 4, 2012 may well be a day that will be remembered as one of the great turning points in history. Yet for so many of us, this day went by without fanfare. On this day, the scientists of the CERN laboratory in Geneva announced their discovery of the Higgs boson. To many, this means nothing. What is a Higgs boson, and why should I care? In the words of Bill Nye, It may mean wed be able to unlock limitless energy. Such wide applications wont be feasible for a long time, but they will, in time, exist. On June 21, just a few days before that great announcement was made, the Miami Heat faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the National Basketball Association Finals. The Heat walked away as the national champions, and there was hardly a person in Miami that night who didnt know what happened. The streets were alive with the sounds of people cheering and banging pots and pans together. The cacophony was surely a sign of the euphoria shared by so many. What I want to know is where those crowds were on the night of the Higgs boson announcement. This is why I am unhappy that so many of us took no note of the discovery. Human history will utterly change because of it, but very few have cared. The discovery of the Higgs boson is the culmination of generations. The discoveries these scientists make will echo through the ages. Some thinkers believe humans will one day inhabit every corner of the cosmos. When we possess such power, what are the odds that the names Lebron James or Dwyane Wade will mean anything? I dont wish to cheapen the place that basketball holds in the hearts of many. I just want to illustrate this rather disproportionate allocation of public attention. There is probably a big place for sports in a healthy human culture. when such entertainment becomes the only thing that people are concerned with. The feats achieved by even the best team of basketball players are trivial when compared to the discovery of profound truths governing the universe. If the Heat kept the streets in Miami alive for a night, then CERN should have kept every city on the planet alive for at least a week. For too many of us, science is nothing more than a factory that gives us fancy new gadgets every few years. The iPhone 5 release is arguably comparable to the vicApples shiny new phone. Some had been camping for days. I wonder how much nicer those iPhones would be if we showed such passion for science. Paul Broun, a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, said, I dont believe that the Earth is but about 9,000 years old. Broun is someone who The fact that anyone who believes in such demonstrably cause for worry. I think it would behoove us greatly to reassess what we value as a culture and how much we value it. With such dire questions of human survival now facing us, our fate hangs in the balance. Will we heed the words of scientists who warn of our self-annihilating behaviors, or will we scoff and never live to see that day when we sail cosmic seas? Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.It seems like there are always at least a dozen things to be angry about. If its not gas prices, its food quality. If its not the environment, its whatever war were involved with. Today, its racial equality. The University of Texas at Austin is back in the news; a students case against the school went before the Supreme Court. They want to achieve a certain level of student diversity. Thats understandable for the school, as the only other time that a case involving UT Austin came before the U.S. Supreme Court was in 1950, when the University was sued by Heman Sweatt, a black man who was denied admission to the School of Law because of Recently, Abigail Fisher, a 22-year-old Texan, claims she was cause she was white, according to USA Today. This can almost feel like two completely different sides of the thing: equality. Nobody should be discriminated against based on race, gender or sexuality. Or what school you attend. Or what clothes you wear. It happens all the time, but it shouldnt. Maybe UT Austin should use this opportunity to take a closer look at its admitted students. Police at the university are investigating reports that four walking near campus last week, according to the Los Angeles Times. There have been protests against racially themed fraternity parties and on-campus events on Cinco de Mayo during which fraternity members dressed like Border Patrol agents ran around the campus capturing other fraternity members wearing sarapes, sombreros, and T-shirts that read, Illegal alien, wrote UT Austin alumnus. Its a problem. And youre kidding yourself if you think its just at that university. Is it naive to wish we could all just get along sometimes? essary? In some places, wed argue it is. Should it be enforced everywhere? Hopefully not. Why arent we at the point, as a country, at which we look beyond race? If were going to be judged, it should be on our merit, not by our skin color. At places like UT Austin, maybe admissions should use an how racist they are before admitting them. Stupid is as stupid does. So says Forrest Gump, and so say we. Were still dealing with a generation raised by scared conserIf schools have shown an inability to positively represent the racial makeup of their surrounding areas, then they should have to adjust for that. Diversity is important; discrimination is not.Erin Jester EDITOR Sarah Kinonen MANAGING EDITOR Sami Main OPINIONS EDITOR Brandon Lee Gagneopinions@alligator.org

Martin said he loves the idea of a variety show setup, because it is different from the band setting he is used to. With bands, Martin would have to coordinate practice and performance times with other members. By hosting his own show, he gets to collaborate with great performers, while calling all of the shots. These musicians that are in the show are the cream of the Gainesville crop, Martin said.

Amid the AIDS crisis of the early 90s, Jeffrey is consumed by a perpetual fear of the disease. Jeffrey is the main character in Paul Rudnicks Jeffrey, a play that will be put on by the Florida Players at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Squitieri Studio Theatre Friday through Sunday.

He takes the audience with him on this journey. Youre inside his brain, and hes talking to you, and hes showing you through his eyes what is happening in the world around him, said Kenny Frechette, a 21-year-old dance senior who plays the title role, Jeffrey. Its confetti, glitter, theme shows and cats! Its a ride. Forty-one characters, played by the eight cast members, make up Jeffreys outrageous world. A lot of the characters I play take place in Jeffreys imagination, said Lindsay Head, a 20-year-old dance junior who plays eight roles. Each character has to be a little off-kilter, because they are not completely human. Head said she had to do a lot of accent work for the play, which is full of brilliant one-liners. year-old theatre and telecommunication senior, said the audience can rodeo and a gay pride parade. I think it has a good message of thing, she said. Even when the circumstances are horrible, theres always something to laugh about. Despite the humor, the play deals with several poignant issues relating to the disease. The play stresses the hatred for this awful disease that can tear people and relationships apart, but it reminds the audience that people should take advantage of life while they have it, Head said. Its been challenging to under stand the beauty between hating AIDS and not hating life, she said. Ross Mogerley, a 22-year-old dance junior who plays seven roles, said the larger-than-life characters help to bring humor into the seriousness of the AIDS crisis. It felt really relevant to me as a gay artist, being openly gay and said. Frechette said he hopes people dont write off the show because it uses comedy to tell the serious subject of the AIDS epidemic. At its core, its a story about love and remembering to enjoy life. I relate to the idea of being really young at heart, and really playful, and really happy and really trying to enjoy life while you have it, Frechette said. Enjoy it while youre young. Enjoy it while youre hot. Even if students cant relate to the AIDS crisis and the horror of the disease, they can relate to Jeffrey, he said. Just like college students may worry about whether they are taking the right path or choosing the major that is right for them, Jeffrey is also confused. Thats Jeffrey. He doesnt know where his life is going, and he doesnt know what path to take, Frechette said. He said he hopes audience members take away the importance of not giving up, despite all the hardships they may be faced with. Dont deny yourself happiness if the opportunity presents itself, he said. Life will suck a lot of the time, but, damn it, thats why you have to go for happiness when it presents itself to you.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012 THE RESTAURANT USES THE VERO WATER BOTTLING SYSTEM. CAROLINA GARCIAAvenue Contributing WriterColorful chalk powder-painted walls and handmade wooden cases coddling specialty wine and wheat beer line the cozy and eclectic eatery. The decor and live music please the customers, but The Jones Bsides newest initiative has gotten mixed reviews. The Jones Bside implemented a new water service that charges patrons 50 cents for water from the trending Vero Water Bottling System. Tap water is still available for free. Served in a sustainable and sleek glass bottle, the Vero Water Bottling System considers its water the worlds greenest premium bottled water. The Jones Bside co-owner Maya Velesko agrees. When Velesko decided to implement the highly erything, including the health, envithe water. In terms of the ease from a business standpoint, its a machine that is no need for ice, so that way we get rid of the conundrum of dirty ice cally something I have been wanting to do, Velesko said. As with most change, Velesko recognizes that some members of the community are hesitant to accept the newly added water cost and received some negative feedback about it. We work, every damn day and night, to create a business from the taurants mission statement. In taking that feedback and by informing customers of their reasoning with the mission statement on the menu, Velesko hopes to get her message of sustainability across. I thought that by placing a really minimal fee on water, it would help raise awareness that, Hey! This should be valued just like that glass of Coke or that beer that youre buying, Velesko said. Ive seen people stand up and chug the last of their beer so that they dont leave a drop of it and I really feel like people should start taking the same approach to water.

Dear Friend, Remember the words of the bleach-blond cutie, Zach Morris, I like school. Its a good way to kill time between weekends.

THE BOTTLE LINE IS CALLED TODAY I WILL. KARILLA DYERAvenue Contributing WriterInspirational sayings make popular Facebook statuses. On Tumblr, powerful quotes layered over equally powerful images are constantly reblogged. Inspired to keep spreading positive messages beyond the Internet, 19-year-old English junior Sylvia Lai created Today I Will, a line of stainless steel reusable water bottles with uplifting words printed on them. Lais bottles are available for pur chase at www.bambouheart.com. rational statuses on her Facebook news feed, Lai realized the same concept could be applied to a reusable water bottle design. Each bottle is inscribed with a phrase meant to boost the bottle owners spirits such as Today I will care or Today I will be me. The bottles shape is the same as old-fashioned milk bottles, which tles in history. Lai started her company, Bambou Heart, with the help of her father, who is her business manager. As an English major, Lai had no prehas learned along the way. Things do not go the way you plan them, and you have to adjust, to adapt. Her father put her in contact with some of his business associates in China, who agreed to manufacture the bottles overseas. The biggest ing her product, which has been out of pocket so far. funds, Lai has linked her bottles to worthy causes. Half of the proceeds from her sales go to charity. She is fundraising for Enchanted Weekend at Give Kids the World, an event tasy vacations to sick children and their families. Lais philanthropic ventures began her freshman year at UF when tion, Wish Upon a Crane, to raise money for disaster relief in Japan. She and her former roommate, 20-year-old prepharmacy junior Audrey Kandzer, made paper cranes by hand, which they sent to people who donated to the cause. All proceeds went to the Red Cross, which then sent them to Japan. [Lai] is a statement to our campus community that we as students have just as much potential for greatness as anyone else, Kandzer said. Outside her charity work, Lai designs a line of workout clothes that is sustainable, chemical-free and antibacterial, making them ideal for I thought that maybe if I just switched the material and made it stylish and comfortable, maybe people would choose a different way of dressing while still helping out the environment, Lai said. Lai views her work as a fun hobby that requires great effort. She plans to attend law school and possibly study business law, she said. With her business still in its infancy, she continues to run her website and searches for ways to market her products. Lai encourages other students to starters. Find the good in everything, and you will be inspired by what you can do and what you can do for others, she said. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012 Rachel Crosby / AlligatorNineteen-year-old English junior Sylvia Lai created her own line of reusable water bottles called Today I Will. Each bottle is printed with an inspirational message such as Today I will be me. UF student entrepreneur gives back with reusable water bottle line BAKR SALIQAvenue WriterFor today, I will depart from the regular movie-based focus of this column due to an amazing TV show recently available on NetThe TV show aired for less than a season from 1999 to 2000 on NBC. Created by Paul Feig (director of Bridesmaids), it revolves around two groups of friends clasWilliam McKinley High School. Lindsay Weir, played by Linda Cardellini, is a new member of the Freaks, which is a drastic change from when she was a top student and a member of the mathletes. Surrounded by burnouts, Daniel Desario, Ken Miller, Nick Andopolis and Kim Kelly, played by James Franco (127 Hours), Seth Rogen (Knocked Up), Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) and Busy Philips (Cougartown) respectively, Weir of her parents and teachers, and the desire to be cool with her friends. In the Geeks, we have Weirs younger freshman brother, Sam Weir (John Francis Daley). The diminutive younger Weir has two longtime friends, Neal Schweiber and Bill Haverchuck, played by Samm Levine (Not Another Teen Movie) and Martin Starr (Knocked Up) respectively, and neither is in any way cooler than the other. Although I was neither a high school student of the s nor a fully conscious human being when the show and Geeks looks at a section of the cafeteria that is generally avoided by high school TV shows. I dont necessarily look at Freaks and Geeks as an accurate portrayal of high school. However, I enjoy pretty girls often found on television. with now-famous faces.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll Question Are you concerned about Floridas ability to slow down mobile quarterbacks? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer L ast season didnt go how Mike Rosario planned. After sitting out 2010-11 because of transfer rules, the redshirt selast season due to injury. Between a strained back, pain in his leg and a hip pointer, Rosario missed six games and 25 practices. Coach Billy Donovan questioned Rosarios toughness at UFs media day on Wednesday. In athletics you get measured more on what you do on days that you dont feel well than on the days you do feel well, he said. Were never going to put any of our guys in jeopardy to get hurt, but if you get a little tendinitis, youre a little sore, youve got a thigh bruise, you have to work through that and push through that. Mike had a hip pointer and was out for 10 days. I mean that is just mind-boggling. Ten days for a hip pointer? My daughter could work through that. During Rosarios two seasons at Rutgers in 2008-10, he averaged 33.1 minutes per game. However, in his only 14.4 minutes per game. game as a Gator against Mississippi Valley State on Dec. 19, he scored an average of 9.4 points per game. He averaged only 5.3 points per game Poll ResultsWhat is your opinion of Floridas No. 4 ranking in the latest AP poll?38% TOO HIGH 6% TOO LOW 56% RIGHT156 total votes David Carr / Alligator StaffRedshirt senior guard Mike Rosario poses during Floridas media day on Wednesday. Rosario struggled with injuries and inconsistency in 2011-12, averaging only 14.4 minutes per game. To the naked eye, the Florida defense has been dominant this season. The Gators have overwhelmed opponents late in games, allowing just 13 second-half points all season and none in the fourth quarter. As a whole, the unit ranks 12th in the country in total defense. Despite UFs early success, the unit still has more to to show it can shut down a mobile quarterback for an entire game. Florida has yet to face Georgias Aaron Murray, South Carolinas Connor Shaw and Vanderbilts Jordan Rodgers this season, and all three gave the Gators trouble with their scrambling abilities in 2011. Murray ran for 42 yards on nine carries in Floridas 24-20 loss to Georgia last season. Shaw rushed for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the Gamecocks 17-12 win against the Gators in Columbia, S.C. And Rodgers, who Florida will face on Saturday, rushed for 41 yards in last years matchup not including the 21 yards he lost on sacks. He also used his feet to make throws outside the pocket, racking up 297 yards in a 26-21 loss, the closest Vandy has come to upsetting UF since 2002. Based on Floridas performance against Texas A&M and dual-threat freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel, the issue during the offseason. Manziel ran for 41 yards and a touchdown while completing 16 of 20 passes half alone. At halftime, the coaches stressed to the UF defensive linemen the need to limit Manziel by staying in their lanes and not overpursuing to make plays in The Gators were more successful in the second half, limiting Manziel to 19 yards on eight carries and only 32 passing yards. If Florida struggles against mobile quarterbacks, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said, preparation isnt Mobile QBs a threat Guard looking for bounceback year Mike had a hip pointer and was out for 10 days. I mean ... that is just mindboggling. Ten days for a hip pointer? My daughter could work through that.Billy DonovanUF coachJURNY DUTY ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer A safety leads the Gators in tackles. In linebacker leads them in sacks. This isnt a typical defense with a middle linebacker racking up 10plus tackles in a game and a speed rusher at defensive end sacking the quarterback several times per contest. No. 4 Florida does not have a player ranked among the top 25 in tackles in the Southeastern Conference. Yet the Gators are ranked 12th nationally in total defense. The best player on our defense is our defense, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. Everybodys making plays when you need to, Bostic said. Dont try to jump out and make plays because, yeah, sometimes it works, but other times it may kill you. We said that from the start of camp: Youve got to let the plays come to you. A lack of discipline and depth proved problematic for the Gators last season. UF allowed 201 rushing yards per game in October against Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia. Now, the Gators are deeper up front. Coaches have cut Omar Hunters playing time by about 30 snaps per game. That says a lot about our depth and being able to play a lot more guys, coach Will Muschamp said. Some guys stats are a little skewed probably because theyre not playing as many snaps as they did a year ago, especially in the front seven. Christy getting job done: Kyle Christy didnt expect to go to Florida. First, LSU needed to take notice. After the Tigers offered the Brownsburg, In., punter a scholarship early in June of 2010, Christys recruitment started to pick up. Impressive performances at college camps led Christy to a UF offer. He committed to Florida on June 28, 2010, and enrolled early the next spring. Ive given my high school coach so much credit for getting a scholarship because hes the one who made me start punting in the Christy played for Brett Comer Gators defense thriving despite lack of go-to playmaker UF Fo otball Florida ranks 12th in total defenseSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 19 SEE JURNY DUTY, PAGE 19 SEE ROSARIO, PAGE 19Junior center Patric Young dealt with mono during the offseason, but he is back at full strength in practice.

at Brownsburg (Ind.) High. The sophomore, who punts with a size-11 soccer cleat, has made the most of his opportunity at Florida. While he didnt wrestle the starting punter job from rising senior David Lerner to begin last season, Christy became the starter by Floridas sixth game. He hasnt looked back. Nine of Christys punts have been spotted inside the 20-yard line this season, and he pinned the Tigers inside their own 10yard line three times on Satur day. UF allows an average of 2.89 yards per return, which ranks 17th in the country. Theres no really secret to it, Vanderbilt coach James Franklin said. Theyve got a good punter, he gets good hang time, and theyve got a bunch of covering. Linebacker working his way back: Jelani Jenkins has been unlucky in 2012. After missing UFs games against Tennessee and Kentucky with a fractured right thumb he suffered against Texas A&M on Sept. 8, the junior weakside linebacker started against LSU. But a hamstring injury ended his day early and put his status in question for Saturdays matchup against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. Muschamp said on Monday that Jenkins would probably play against the Commodores. Were pushing Jelani as hard as he can to get him ready to play, Quinn said. We certainly need him to, so were kind of taking it day by day. Junior cornerback Cody Riggs is improving since fractur ing his right foot one month ago, but remains out for Saturday.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 NOTEBOOK LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterDespite a three-week bout with mononucleosis during the offseason, Patric Young passed his conditioning test on Tuesday, coach Billy Donovan said. The junior center returned to workouts on Sept. 19. I would say a year ago, him coming off of mono, he would have never had a chance to pass it, Donovan said. Ive seen some growth in him in that area. The 6-foot-9, 249-pound Young had troufor Florida last season. He averaged only 26.5 minutes per game. Young would have logged more time last season if he had maintained his intensity and done a better job of dealing with the bumps and bruises that come with increased action, Donovan said. If you look at any frontcourt player that weve had here thats been really effective, theyve had a great ability to endure physical conditioning, and theyve been able to play through fatigue, Donovan said. I think from a maturity standpoint, thats an area where Patric has got to get better. Youngs stamina issues also put him in foul trouble in 2011-12. He led UF with 99 fouls. Now healthy, Young is preparing for the increased minutes. the other day and just told me theres no reason I shouldnt be able to play 32-35 minutes a game, Young said. Im like Thats a lot, but I can do it. Its all mental. Larson not on scholarship: Sophomore for ward Cody Larson is no longer on scholar ship but chose to return to the Gators as a walk-on, Donovan said Wednesday. Donovans decision was based on Larsons failure to handle his responsibilities on and off the court last season. Larson and senior Erik Murphy were arrested in April 2011 on charges of third-degree felony burglary. Larson previously received two years probation in February 2010 after shar ing Hydrocodone pills with a teammate. Obviously, I was disappointed, but I knew it was coming, Larson said. Larson averaged 0.5 points and 0.8 rebounds per game last year. Donovan said Larson was given the option to transfer. Im as proud of Cody today and maybe more so than I ever have been, Donovan said. Ive seen a total change in him from the time the season ended last year to now up to this point in time. I think he can be a productive player for us in the future. Larsons switch to walk-on status leaves Florida with 13 scholarship players, right at the NCAA maximum. This is the best place for me, whether Im on scholarship or not, Larson said. Its perfect for me because I lost my scholarship. That sounds weird. But in life, thats whats going to make me become a man. Im going to learn from this stuff.Junior healthy, ready for increased role after bout with mono F OOTBALL, from page 17Punter excelling for UF Redshirt senior showing signs of changethe rest of the season. [Rosario] needs to understand that the responsibility he has is school, class on-time, doing the things he knows hes supposed to do, then on the court practicing and playing the right way, Donovan said. If he does those things then he puts me in a position to allow me to play him more as a coach and he gets out of it what he wants to get out of it. Despite last years struggles, Donovan is starting to see a change in Rosario. Donovan said Rosarios last three weeks have been his best since becoming a Gator, and hes made a commitment to improving his work ethic, which developed partly because of his time playing for the Puerto Rican National Team dur ing the summer. The one thing that was very humbling for him was two-fold: one, not getting a chance to play a lot and our cant success last year, Donovan said, and then also playing on the Puerto Rican National Team and having to back up two NBA playDonovan hopes Rosario will put his previous setbacks behind him, which should lead to more time on the court. Rosario is ready to work to get those extra minutes. Whatever coach asks me to do to help my team in any kind of way, Im willing to do, Rosario said. Im just looking forward to being a consistent guy and just going out there and working hard. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org. ROS ARIO, from page 17to blame. When you talk about the opponent at the start of the week thats one of the things that you talk about early, Quinn said. Is this a quarterback who wants to move the pocket and create on the run or is it more of a drop-back passer? Quinn added that UFs defense needs to stay disciplined and keep opposing quarterbacks inside the pocket. Certainly when you have a guy who can get outside you talk about what we say, taking care of the edges of the defense, Quinn said. To try to force the guy back inside at times in certain calls. The defense showed it had the ability to do so in the second half against Texas A&M, but it needs to play that way for four quarters to beat South Carolina and Geor gia.

His hairpiece may have been fake, but Alexanders message was sincere; students should vote in the upcoming presidential election. Im not proud of it, but I didnt vote in most elections, he said to a crowd of about 70 people who gathered to hear him speak at the Gators for Obama event. I didnt think anyone would get elected and change things, he added later. Alexander told the audience that putting money in education and cutting costs to middle-class workers would stimulate the economy. He also warned attendees to be wary of Mitt Romneys austerity and trickle-down economics advocacies. investors, not workers, Alexander said. Nothing Mitt Romney has ever built or destroyed has helped that guy. He also spoke about protecting reproductive rights, improving Palestinian-Israeli relations and nominating Supreme Court justices.

They know the youth vote is important, she said, and its important to get them excited for President Obama. McGovern said she supported President Obama because of his policy to keep student loan interest rates low. She and her twin sister took out loans to pay for classes. I know that I cant ask my parents to borrow money for college, McGovern said. Jon Beever, a 19-year-old economics freshman, said he wasnt surprised Alexander took time to speak to students.

BROCK SENGAlligator Contributing WriterIn a country founded on religious freedom, a Gallup poll showed that one a Mormon. Mitt Romney, a Mormon, will challenge the incumbent president, Barack Obama, a Christian, Nov. 6. Students stand on both sides of the argument of whether religion matters when it comes to the presidency. John Michael Yakulevich, a 20-yearold industrial and systems engineer ing junior, and Evan M. Eisenberg, a 24-year-old sociology and political science junior, both said if the candidate or she would have their votes, regardless of religion. They have opposing views when it comes to religions part in politics. Yakulevich said religion matters because note should be taken of everything about a candidate. Religion, for example, reveals some of the candidates moral values and why he stands where he does on certain issues, he said. Eisenberg disagrees. When it comes to voting for president, their religious beliefs are about as important to me as their shoe size, he said. Eisenberg said since the United States doesnt have one view, or one religion, he doesnt mind people who view gay marriage or abortion as wrong. However, Yakulevich and Eisenberg agree that religion doesnt make the president good. Its ridiculous, Yakulevich said. Where would this country be if we held those same standards for all job positions? This isnt the only time religion has played a part in politics. When John F. Kennedy ran for president, his religious views became an issue, mainly because he was Roman Catholic. Although Kennedy was a different Christian denomination from most, Laura Sjoberg, associate professor of political science, said this election is different. Catholicism was something that was well-known, and people werent sure if they liked it, she said. When it came to religion and politics, Sjoberg agreed with Eisenberg in the belief that religion should not be a part of politics. To me, the less religion there is in politics, the better, she said. She said that in theory, the U.S. is a secular country, but in practice, its a seen abroad. I think its about time we focus on the real issues that are haunting America, Eisenberg said.

Wednesdays poll results are unavailable July 4, 2012 may well be a day that will be remembered as one of the great turning points in history. Yet for so many of us, this day went by without fanfare. On this day, the scientists of the CERN laboratory in Geneva announced their discovery of the Higgs boson. To many, this means nothing. What is a Higgs boson, and why should I care? In the words of Bill Nye, It may mean wed be able to unlock limitless energy. Such wide applications wont be feasible for a long time, but they will, in time, exist. On June 21, just a few days before that great announcement was made, the Miami Heat faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the National Basketball Association Finals. The Heat walked away as the national champions, and there was hardly a person in Miami that night who didnt know what happened. The streets were alive with the sounds of people cheering and banging pots and pans together. The cacophony was surely a sign of the euphoria shared by so many. What I want to know is where those crowds were on the night of the Higgs boson announcement. This is why I am unhappy that so many of us took no note of the discovery. Human history will utterly change because of it, but very few have cared. The discovery of the Higgs boson is the culmination of generations. The discoveries these scientists make will echo through the ages. Some thinkers believe humans will one day inhabit every corner of the cosmos. When we possess such power, what are the odds that the names Lebron James or Dwyane Wade will mean anything? I dont wish to cheapen the place that basketball holds in the hearts of many. I just want to illustrate this rather disproportionate allocation of public attention. There is probably a big place for sports in a healthy human culture. when such entertainment becomes the only thing that people are concerned with. The feats achieved by even the best team of basketball players are trivial when compared to the discovery of profound truths governing the universe. If the Heat kept the streets in Miami alive for a night, then CERN should have kept every city on the planet alive for at least a week. For too many of us, science is nothing more than a factory that gives us fancy new gadgets every few years. The iPhone 5 release is arguably comparable to the vicApples shiny new phone. Some had been camping for days. I wonder how much nicer those iPhones would be if we showed such passion for science. Paul Broun, a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, said, I dont believe that the Earth is but about 9,000 years old. Broun is someone who The fact that anyone who believes in such demonstrably cause for worry. I think it would behoove us greatly to reassess what we value as a culture and how much we value it. With such dire questions of human survival now facing us, our fate hangs in the balance. Will we heed the words of scientists who warn of our self-annihilating behaviors, or will we scoff and never live to see that day when we sail cosmic seas? Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.It seems like there are always at least a dozen things to be angry about. If its not gas prices, its food quality. If its not the environment, its whatever war were involved with. Today, its racial equality. The University of Texas at Austin is back in the news; a students case against the school went before the Supreme Court. They want to achieve a certain level of student diversity. Thats understandable for the school, as the only other time that a case involving UT Austin came before the U.S. Supreme Court was in 1950, when the University was sued by Heman Sweatt, a black man who was denied admission to the School of Law because of Recently, Abigail Fisher, a 22-year-old Texan, claims she was cause she was white, according to USA Today. This can almost feel like two completely different sides of the thing: equality. Nobody should be discriminated against based on race, gender or sexuality. Or what school you attend. Or what clothes you wear. It happens all the time, but it shouldnt. Maybe UT Austin should use this opportunity to take a closer look at its admitted students. Police at the university are investigating reports that four walking near campus last week, according to the Los Angeles Times. There have been protests against racially themed fraternity parties and on-campus events on Cinco de Mayo during which fraternity members dressed like Border Patrol agents ran around the campus capturing other fraternity members wearing sarapes, sombreros, and T-shirts that read, Illegal alien, wrote UT Austin alumnus. Its a problem. And youre kidding yourself if you think its just at that university. Is it naive to wish we could all just get along sometimes? essary? In some places, wed argue it is. Should it be enforced everywhere? Hopefully not. Why arent we at the point, as a country, at which we look beyond race? If were going to be judged, it should be on our merit, not by our skin color. At places like UT Austin, maybe admissions should use an how racist they are before admitting them. Stupid is as stupid does. So says Forrest Gump, and so say we. Were still dealing with a generation raised by scared conserIf schools have shown an inability to positively represent the racial makeup of their surrounding areas, then they should have to adjust for that.

The show begins at 9 p.m. Thursday at The Bull, 18 SW First Ave. The show features Martin, the host, and his Genius Boy band. Guest acts include singer Michelle er and comedian Jason Hedges. Martin said he loves the idea of a variety show setup, because it is different from the band setting he is used to. With bands, Martin would have to coordinate practice and performance times with other members. By hosting his own show, he gets to collaborate with great performers, while calling all of the shots. These musicians that are in the show are the cream of the Gainesville crop, Martin said.

The variety show Martin has created is the culmination of everything that inspired him musically as a child. Im always doing something new because its a part of who I am, Martin said.

Amid the AIDS crisis of the early 90s, Jeffrey is consumed by a perpetual fear of the disease.

He takes the audience with him on this journey. Youre inside his brain, and hes talking to you, and hes showing you through his eyes what is happening in the world around him, said Kenny Frechette, a 21-year-old dance senior who plays the title role, Jeffrey. Its confetti, glitter, theme shows and cats! Its a ride. Forty-one characters, played by the eight cast members, make up Jeffreys outrageous world. A lot of the characters I play take place in Jeffreys imagination, said Lindsay Head, a 20-year-old dance junior who plays eight roles. Each character has to be a little off-kilter, because they are not completely human. Head said she had to do a lot of accent work for the play, which is full of brilliant one-liners. year-old theatre and telecommunication senior, said the audience can rodeo and a gay pride parade. I think it has a good message of thing, she said. Even when the circumstances are horrible, theres always something to laugh about. Despite the humor, the play deals with several poignant issues relating to the disease. The play stresses the hatred for this awful disease that can tear people and relationships apart, but it reminds the audience that people should take advantage of life while they have it, Head said. Its been challenging to under stand the beauty between hating AIDS and not hating life, she said. Ross Mogerley, a 22-year-old dance junior who plays seven roles, said the larger-than-life characters help to bring humor into the seriousness of the AIDS crisis. It felt really relevant to me as a gay artist, being openly gay and said. Frechette said he hopes people dont write off the show because it uses comedy to tell the serious subject of the AIDS epidemic. At its core, its a story about love and remembering to enjoy life. I relate to the idea of being really young at heart, and really playful, and really happy and really trying to enjoy life while you have it, Frechette said. Enjoy it while youre young. Enjoy it while youre hot. Even if students cant relate to the AIDS crisis and the horror of the disease, they can relate to Jeffrey, he said. Just like college students may worry about whether they are taking the right path or choosing the major that is right for them, Jeffrey is also confused. Thats Jeffrey. He doesnt know where his life is going, and he doesnt know what path to take, Frechette said. He said he hopes audience members take away the importance of not giving up, despite all the hardships they may be faced with. Dont deny yourself happiness if the opportunity presents itself, he said. Life will suck a lot of the time, but, damn it, thats why you have to go for happiness when it presents itself to you.

CAROLINA GARCIAAvenue Contributing WriterColorful chalk powder-painted walls and handmade wooden cases coddling specialty wine and wheat beer line the cozy and eclectic eatery. The decor and live music please the customers, but The Jones Bsides newest initiative has gotten mixed reviews. The Jones Bside implemented a new water service that charges patrons 50 cents for water from the trending Vero Water Bottling System. Tap water is still available for free. Served in a sustainable and sleek glass bottle, the Vero Water Bottling System considers its water the worlds greenest premium bottled water. The Jones Bside co-owner Maya Velesko agrees.

In terms of the ease from a business standpoint, its a machine that is no need for ice, so that way we get rid of the conundrum of dirty ice cally something I have been wanting to do, Velesko said. As with most change, Velesko recognizes that some members of the community are hesitant to accept the newly added water cost and received some negative feedback about it. We work, every damn day and night, to create a business from the taurants mission statement. In taking that feedback and by informing customers of their reasoning with the mission statement on the menu, Velesko hopes to get her message of sustainability across. I thought that by placing a really minimal fee on water, it would help raise awareness that, Hey! This should be valued just like that glass of Coke or that beer that youre buying, Velesko said. Ive seen people stand up and chug the last of their beer so that they dont leave a drop of it and I really feel like people should start taking the same approach to water.

THE BOTTLE LINE IS CALLED TODAY I WILL. KARILLA DYERAvenue Contributing WriterInspirational sayings make popular Facebook statuses. On Tumblr, powerful quotes layered over equally powerful images are constantly reblogged. Inspired to keep spreading positive messages beyond the Internet, 19-year-old English junior Sylvia Lai created Today I Will, a line of stainless steel reusable water bottles with uplifting words printed on them. Lais bottles are available for pur chase at www.bambouheart.com. rational statuses on her Facebook news feed, Lai realized the same concept could be applied to a reusable water bottle design.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll Question Are you concerned about Floridas ability to slow down mobile quarterbacks? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer L ast season didnt go how Mike Rosario planned. After sitting out 2010-11 because of transfer rules, the redshirt selast season due to injury. Between a strained back, pain in his leg and a hip pointer, Rosario missed six games and 25 practices. Coach Billy Donovan questioned Rosarios toughness at UFs media day on Wednesday. In athletics you get measured more on what you do on days that you dont feel well than on the days you do feel well, he said. Were never going to put any of our guys in jeopardy to get hurt, but if you get a little tendinitis, youre a little sore, youve got a thigh bruise, you have to work through that and push through that. Mike had a hip pointer and was out for 10 days. I mean that is just mind-boggling. Ten days for a hip pointer? My daughter could work through that. During Rosarios two seasons at Rutgers in 2008-10, he averaged 33.1 minutes per game. However, in his only 14.4 minutes per game. game as a Gator against Mississippi Valley State on Dec. 19, he scored an average of 9.4 points per game. He averaged only 5.3 points per game Poll ResultsWhat is your opinion of Floridas No. 4 ranking in the latest AP poll?38% TOO HIGH 6% TOO LOW 56% RIGHT156 total votes David Carr / Alligator StaffRedshirt senior guard Mike Rosario poses during Floridas media day on Wednesday. Rosario struggled with injuries and inconsistency in 2011-12, averaging only 14.4 minutes per game. To the naked eye, the Florida defense has been dominant this season. The Gators have overwhelmed opponents late in games, allowing just 13 second-half points all season and none in the fourth quarter. As a whole, the unit ranks 12th in the country in total defense. Despite UFs early success, the unit still has more to to show it can shut down a mobile quarterback for an entire game. Florida has yet to face Georgias Aaron Murray, South Carolinas Connor Shaw and Vanderbilts Jordan Rodgers this season, and all three gave the Gators trouble with their scrambling abilities in 2011. Murray ran for 42 yards on nine carries in Floridas 24-20 loss to Georgia last season. Shaw rushed for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the Gamecocks 17-12 win against the Gators in Columbia, S.C. And Rodgers, who Florida will face on Saturday, rushed for 41 yards in last years matchup not including the 21 yards he lost on sacks. He also used his feet to make throws outside the pocket, racking up 297 yards in a 26-21 loss, the closest Vandy has come to upsetting UF since 2002. Based on Floridas performance against Texas A&M and dual-threat freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel, the issue during the offseason. Manziel ran for 41 yards and a touchdown while completing 16 of 20 passes half alone. At halftime, the coaches stressed to the UF defensive linemen the need to limit Manziel by staying in their lanes and not overpursuing to make plays in The Gators were more successful in the second half, limiting Manziel to 19 yards on eight carries and only 32 passing yards. If Florida struggles against mobile quarterbacks, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said, preparation isnt Mobile QBs a threat Guard looking for bounceback year Mike had a hip pointer and was out for 10 days. I mean ... that is just mindboggling. Ten days for a hip pointer? My daughter could work through that.Billy DonovanUF coachJURNY DUTY ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer A safety leads the Gators in tackles. In linebacker leads them in sacks. This isnt a typical defense with a middle linebacker racking up 10plus tackles in a game and a speed rusher at defensive end sacking the quarterback several times per contest. No. 4 Florida does not have a player ranked among the top 25 in tackles in the Southeastern Conference. Yet the Gators are ranked 12th nationally in total defense. The best player on our defense is our defense, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. Everybodys making plays when you need to, Bostic said. Dont try to jump out and make plays because, yeah, sometimes it works, but other times it may kill you. We said that from the start of camp: Youve got to let the plays come to you. A lack of discipline and depth proved problematic for the Gators last season. UF allowed 201 rushing yards per game in October against Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia. Now, the Gators are deeper up front. Coaches have cut Omar Hunters playing time by about 30 snaps per game. That says a lot about our depth and being able to play a lot more guys, coach Will Muschamp said. Some guys stats are a little skewed probably because theyre not playing as many snaps as they did a year ago, especially in the front seven. Christy getting job done: Kyle Christy didnt expect to go to Florida. First, LSU needed to take notice. After the Tigers offered the Brownsburg, In., punter a scholarship early in June of 2010, Christys recruitment started to pick up. Impressive performances at college camps led Christy to a UF offer. He committed to Florida on June 28, 2010, and enrolled early the next spring. Ive given my high school coach so much credit for getting a scholarship because hes the one who made me start punting in the Christy played for Brett Comer Gators defense thriving despite lack of go-to playmaker UF Fo otball Florida ranks 12th in total defenseSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 19 SEE JURNY DUTY, PAGE 19 SEE ROSARIO, PAGE 19Junior center Patric Young dealt with mono during the offseason, but he is back at full strength in practice.

at Brownsburg (Ind.) High. The sophomore, who punts with a size-11 soccer cleat, has made the most of his opportunity at Florida. While he didnt wrestle the starting punter job from rising senior David Lerner to begin last season, Christy became the starter by Floridas sixth game. He hasnt looked back. Nine of Christys punts have been spotted inside the 20-yard line this season, and he pinned the Tigers inside their own 10yard line three times on Satur day. UF allows an average of 2.89 yards per return, which ranks 17th in the country. Theres no really secret to it, Vanderbilt coach James Franklin said. Theyve got a good punter, he gets good hang time, and theyve got a bunch of covering. Linebacker working his way back: Jelani Jenkins has been unlucky in 2012. After missing UFs games against Tennessee and Kentucky with a fractured right thumb he suffered against Texas A&M on Sept. 8, the junior weakside linebacker started against LSU. But a hamstring injury ended his day early and put his status in question for Saturdays matchup against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. Muschamp said on Monday that Jenkins would probably play against the Commodores. Were pushing Jelani as hard as he can to get him ready to play, Quinn said. We certainly need him to, so were kind of taking it day by day. Junior cornerback Cody Riggs is improving since fractur ing his right foot one month ago, but remains out for Saturday.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 NOTEBOOK LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterDespite a three-week bout with mononucleosis during the offseason, Patric Young passed his conditioning test on Tuesday, coach Billy Donovan said. The junior center returned to workouts on Sept. 19. I would say a year ago, him coming off of mono, he would have never had a chance to pass it, Donovan said. Ive seen some growth in him in that area. The 6-foot-9, 249-pound Young had troufor Florida last season. He averaged only 26.5 minutes per game. Young would have logged more time last season if he had maintained his intensity and done a better job of dealing with the bumps and bruises that come with increased action, Donovan said. If you look at any frontcourt player that weve had here thats been really effective, theyve had a great ability to endure physical conditioning, and theyve been able to play through fatigue, Donovan said. I think from a maturity standpoint, thats an area where Patric has got to get better. Youngs stamina issues also put him in foul trouble in 2011-12. He led UF with 99 fouls. Now healthy, Young is preparing for the increased minutes. the other day and just told me theres no reason I shouldnt be able to play 32-35 minutes a game, Young said. Im like Thats a lot, but I can do it. Its all mental. Larson not on scholarship: Sophomore for ward Cody Larson is no longer on scholar ship but chose to return to the Gators as a walk-on, Donovan said Wednesday. Donovans decision was based on Larsons failure to handle his responsibilities on and off the court last season. Larson and senior Erik Murphy were arrested in April 2011 on charges of third-degree felony burglary. Larson previously received two years probation in February 2010 after shar ing Hydrocodone pills with a teammate. Obviously, I was disappointed, but I knew it was coming, Larson said. Larson averaged 0.5 points and 0.8 rebounds per game last year. Donovan said Larson was given the option to transfer. Im as proud of Cody today and maybe more so than I ever have been, Donovan said. Ive seen a total change in him from the time the season ended last year to now up to this point in time. I think he can be a productive player for us in the future. Larsons switch to walk-on status leaves Florida with 13 scholarship players, right at the NCAA maximum. This is the best place for me, whether Im on scholarship or not, Larson said. Its perfect for me because I lost my scholarship. That sounds weird. But in life, thats whats going to make me become a man. Im going to learn from this stuff.Junior healthy, ready for increased role after bout with mono FOOTB OOTBALL, from page 17Punter excelling for UF Redshirt senior showing signs of changethe rest of the season. [Rosario] needs to understand that the responsibility he has is school, class on-time, doing the things he knows hes supposed to do, then on the court practicing and playing the right way, Donovan said. If he does those things then he puts me in a position to allow me to play him more as a coach and he gets out of it what he wants to get out of it. Despite last years struggles, Donovan is starting to see a change in Rosario. Donovan said Rosarios last three weeks have been his best since becoming a Gator, and hes made a commitment to improving his work ethic, which developed partly because of his time playing for the Puerto Rican National Team dur ing the summer. The one thing that was very humbling for him was two-fold: one, not getting a chance to play a lot and our cant success last year, Donovan said, and then also playing on the Puerto Rican National Team and having to back up two NBA playDonovan hopes Rosario will put his previous setbacks behind him, which should lead to more time on the court. Rosario is ready to work to get those extra minutes. Whatever coach asks me to do to help my team in any kind of way, Im willing to do, Rosario said. Im just looking forward to being a consistent guy and just going out there and working hard. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org. ROSa ARIO, from page 17to blame. When you talk about the opponent at the start of the week thats one of the things that you talk about early, Quinn said. Is this a quarterback who wants to move the pocket and create on the run or is it more of a drop-back passer? Quinn added that UFs defense needs to stay disciplined and keep opposing quarterbacks inside the pocket. Certainly when you have a guy who can get outside you talk about what we say, taking care of the edges of the defense, Quinn said. To try to force the guy back inside at times in certain calls. The defense showed it had the ability to do so in the second half against Texas A&M, but it needs to play that way for four quarters to beat South Carolina and Geor gia. Containing Rodgers on Satur proving it can handle any type of quarterback. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. JURNY DUTY from page 17Quinn UF Bask etball YY oung
