MARISA ROSSAlligator Contributing WriterUsers of Amazons Kindle e-reader may get some cash back if a judge approves legal settlements between three major publishers and the attorneys general of mostof the United States. Owners could be entitled to refunds for e-books purchased from April 1, 2010, to May 21, according to an email sent to customers from the Amazon Kindle Team. e-books, customers may receive 30 cents to $1.32 for each eligible purchase. Although Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster deny doing anything wrong, they have settled a lawsuit that makes a $69 million fund to give credit back to consumers. Jonathan Cohen, a UF law professor, said a judge has grounds to sign this order because both parties have worked at a settlement, and it is enforceable. In this case, he said, its the courts decision. If passed, the lawsuit would also limit publishers ability to set e-book prices. Brooke Giuliano, a 20-year-old environmental management in agriculture and natural resources junior, said students probably didnt She said e-books are usually cheaper than in stores, sometimes about 40 percent less. If prices were lower, she said, shed be willing to buy more e-books. If Fifty Shades Darker was cheaper, she said, Id just buy it rather than borrow it.

The program hopes to help teachers go from being novices to experts in that span. cause teachers will receive expert mentorship in math and science. There is a strong consensus that the teacher matters more than any factor for students to learn and succeed, he said. Economics sophomore Jimmy Dreyer, 19, said teachers engage students so they can get the best out of their education. If teachers can instill a sense of passion or desire for a certain subject, it can really make a difference in the kids life and a difference in the world overall, he said. The program will coordinate with the newly created Florida STEM-Teacher Induction and Professional Support Center created by UF.

Our investigation uncovered a one-man black market in prehistoric fossils, he said. Prokopi and his wife own Everything Earth, a Gainesville-based business that buys and sells jewelry, artifacts and fossils. From 2010 to 2012, Prokopi allegedly lied to United States Customs the Mongolian fossils identity, origin and value, according to the New York State attorneys complaint. In March 2010, Prokopi imported the Tyrannosaurus bataar fossil to Gainesville, falsely reporting to cusfrom Great Britain and worth about $15,000. It was actually from Mongolia. Between April and May 2010, Prokopi directed another person to lie on a customs form to import the remains of a Microraptor, a small, ing to the release. Earlier this year, Prokopi listed the Tyrannosaurus bataar skeleton for auction through the Dallas-based auction website Heritage Auctions.

BONES, from page 1 CARINA SEAGRAVEAlligator Contributing WriterAn American cyclists controversial decision to step down from his position at the Livestrong Foundation sparked mixed reactions in Gainesville on Wednesday. Lance Armstrong, accused of doping to win his seven Tour de France races, shocked many by vacating his chair in his own organization. The foundation dedicates itself to empowering and inspiring people with cancer, according to its website. Armstrong was respected for his athleticism, but failed to uphold his achievements through the accusations of cheating held against him, said Team Florida Cycling president Dustin White. Everyone contests the sport of cycling is so hard and it truly is, said the 21-year-old mechanical engineering senior. He had to overcome immense personal battles, but any edge to overcome the challenges of the sport, any shortcut, is bad. White said he agreed with the athletes renunciaVirginia Maurer, UF professor of business law and director of the Poe Center for Business Ethics, wrote in an email that Armstrongs choice to walk away from Livestrong was more than appropriate. A leader who has been disgraced for ethical or legal reasons should step down from his or her position, she said, because it is better for the organization. Leadership requires trust especially when the group that leader is representing is a charity, Maurer said. Brian Ray, UF lecturer for leadership and ethics and director of the Heavener School of Business, agreed. His conclusion was Armstrongs reputation was not as important as the mission of the foundation. Dylan Wade, a cyclist with TriGators for four years, said he believes Armstrongs philanthropy should still be recognized regardless of the allegations against him. far as the medias concerned, but I dont think he should just walk away, said the 21-year-old psychology and criminology senior. Fellow Tri-Gator and acting junior Ryan Oates, 22, said hes skeptical of the accusations. To me, Lance Armstrong was a superhuman that people idolize like UF students idolize Tim Tebow, he said.

Enactus, a business service club within UFs Warrington College of Business Administration, hosted the biannual event and provided resume critiques, mock interviews and presentations about the job market. Melissa Travaglia, a 21-year-old UF marketing junior and a member of the business organization, said the fair was designed to be educational and to allow some unemployed people to network with city businesses. Travaglia said she was surprised by the small turnout, especially since Alachua Countys unemployment rate is 7.1 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. I think its a disconnect of being aware and going out and actually doing it, she said. Sacco has been unemployed for about a year after an injury made it impossible for her to keep up with her jobs physical demands.

LANDON WATNICKAlligator Contributing WriterA history professor will discuss her familys journey during the Holocaust and her recent research about other refugees experiences Thursday. The event, Remapping Death and Survival: Flight, Displacement and International Aid for Jewish Refugees during the Holocaust, is today at 7 p.m. at the Thomas Center, 302 NE Sixth Ave. Atina Grossmann is a history professor at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York. She is also a noted scholar of womens and gender studies, and German and modern European history. across is that we need to kind of remap and rethink our understanding of displacement and survival in the Holocaust, Grossmann said. Her parents, both German Jews, were never held captive in Nazi concentration camps. Rather, they lin to Eastern Europe before World War II began. Its not the standard World War II or Holocaust story, Grossmann said. Her talk is a new reading of the Holocaust. Her reading is very closely related to her family story, which makes it even more interesting,said Anna Muller, a lecturer for the Center for European Studies. Certainly, somebody who sur vived the death camps has a miraculous story. I want to expand that story and say, Well, thats a very good story, but thats not the majority of the survivors, Grossmann said. 8, ALLIGATOR Javier Edwards / AlligatorTree of LifeFaculty Senate Chairwoman Cheri Winton Brodeur, right, and Jose Chaparro, left, plant a Southern Rose nectarine tree outside of the Hub on Wednesday.

She said although its safest to use both methods to prevent pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections, students who are considering stopping one method should carefully consider the decision. She encouraged students to talk to their partners and health care providers. Evans said she thinks students in monogamous relationships often begin to trust one another and then feel that condoms are unnecessary. Its not a laziness thing. Its just one less thing they have to think about when theyre about to have sex, she said.

This year, Matisyahu and his band are plugged in for a performance unlike his last. This is more of a dance party, he said.

The closest feminist bookstore outside Gainesville is in Atlanta. The stores merchandise includes bestselling books, locally published pamphlets, tarot cards, precious rocks and sponge tampons.

We put it out there: Does this matter to you? And the answer is so loud, Merrell said of the communitys reaction to the closure.

In less than two weeks, the store raised about $2,900. As of Tuesday night, it raised $3,029. That money has created new possibilities for Merrell, who thought she ran out of options.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 THE SHOW IS OCT. 24. KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterIt is time to get your head out of your midterm study guides and into the music, because the Passion Pit show is seven days away. This is not a concert you can just walk into saying, Man, I really like that one song in the Taco Bell commercial. No. Passion Pit deserves more than that. So here is a song-a-day guide to get excited for the blood, sweat and tears that will be the Passion Pit show. (OK, maybe not blood, alToday: Ive Got Your Number (album: Chunk of Change EP) This song is a study break better than a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte in the library. The introduction is head-bobbingly catchy and moves into this epic, angsty chorus Have you seen me cry/tears like diamonds? Youll be vibing hard around you will be too engrossed in their Study Edge packets to notice. Friday: Moths Wings (album: Manners) This is a Friday afternoon song. It starts out laid back, like youre walking out of your last class of the week. And then it goes into this huge, happy chorus, and suddenly youre dancing across campus. You may have failed your chemistry test and went hungover to your 8:30 a.m. class, but its OK, because homework doesnt exist until Sunday. Saturday: Little Secrets (album: Manners) Its gameday, so obviously a pump-up song is necessary. Little Secrets is the perfect sorry-forpartying rave song. So on gameday, rave around campus tailgates, rave your way to the stadium and rave your way to Midtown after we beat South Carolina. Alright, maybe that was cocky. The game could go either way, so for Sunday, Im providing two song options. If we win: Its Not My Fault, Im Happy (album: Gossamer) You wont even be able to hear the haters. If we lose: Ill Be Alright (album: Gossamer) Youll most likely wake up on the feeling of regret over what may or may not have happened last night, but dont worry. Youll be alright. Monday: Sleepyhead (album: Manners) Just another manic Monday? No. Because its the week of the show, and what better way to start it than a groggy bus ride listening to the bands most popular song? Tuesday: Where We Belong (album: Gossamer) Its Passion Pit Eve. Its time to meditate on the magnitude of the event that you will be attend tomor row. Remember all of the moments youve shared with the band by your side and smile at the fact that youll be reliving it all in only 24 hours. Maybe youll cry yourself to sleep later, but its OK, because the next day is basically Christmas. Wednesday: Carried Away (Album: Gossamer) Let the bubbly-ness of this song carry you away to the ODome for ing, beautiful night of your life. If you dont have tickets, there are still some tier seats available at p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are $15 for students and $25 for the general public. Listen up: a Passion Pit song for every day of the week Dear Mediocre Advice, I had a friend tell me he would totally bang me if I would let him. While I appreciate the honesty, Im pretty sure I dont want to bang said friend. Ive had this happen before and ignored it, and weve managed to stay pretty good friends. Do you think this is the way I should handle it this time? Or should I be honest and risk hurting his feelings and/or our friendship? Dear Friend, Every being on the planet can turn into a monster if his or her sleep is constantly disrupted. Before she goes out or before you go to sleep, tell her that she and her friends need to be quiet if theyre going to hang out all night at your place. If she brings back people and they wake you up, then you get to be angry and tell them to shut up. Its your house too. You and your roommate need to come to an agreement, so you can get your sleep, and she can socialize at an unnecessary hour. Its not your fault you have a different lifestyle and choose blessed sleep over hanging out until 2:30 a.m. Maybe she can go to someone elses place, or they can go to a part of the house, possibly her room, where you cant hear the chatter. Its not a lot to ask for especially if its every night of the week. If you have already thought about buying earplugs, this has gone on too long, and youre being too nice. Dear Peter, Boobs are a valued part of the body as long as youre outside of a strip club. If men and women had topless equality, no one would appreciate boobs. It would lower their value, similar to how no one cares when a dude takes off his shirt (unless he has the abs of Thor). Were just covering up our girls, and dudes have nothing to hide. Its kind of like when a chubby guy doesnt want to take off his shirt to go in the pool because he has man-boobs. Of course hes nervous to take his shirt off! Hes got boobs, and everyone is going to look at them obviously not in the same way you would gaze at a womans breasts, but you get the point. Boobs are precious and beau tiful spots of fat. Also, this doesnt mean its OK for every guy to take off his shirt. I know if I dont see some kind of proof of an ab workout, Ill be Dear Friend, I appreciate your interest, but Mediocre Advice is my baby cub. Its just me, my laptop, these questions and no pants. Then the nice people at the Alligator, who have tolerated this for a surprisingly long time, edit my baby and kindly print it for you to read. Mediocre Advice is my Titanic, and I will sink with this mother if I have to. I solely created and run it. If you want to contribute, ask as many wild questions you can. The questions are half the fun, so Im counting on readers like you. Also, Ive been informed that there is a shortage of blow-job related questions, so please help. This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, How do I tell my roommate that having a few people in the common area and socializing every night until 2:30 a.m. deprives me of my beloved sleep? I already block out the bright kitchen light with something. Im afraid if I buy earplugs to drown out the chatter, I wont hear my alarm. I dont want to be that b*tchy roommate who comes out disgruntled in pajamas and says, HEY, shut the F up! Dear Mediocre Advice, Why is it OK for men to be topless in pub lic, but seriously not OK for women to do the same? When it comes down to it, we are all members of the same human race. We are Dear Mediocre Advice, Are you taking anyone to help you out next semester if this keeps going? I give advice all the time and would love to be a part! Dear Friend, feelings so do that. Your guy friend isnt going to keep bugging you until the beautiful day you agree, so dont worry about it. Take it as a compliment, and avoid the topic as long as you can like, forever. Although you may never take him up on his offer, its nice to have friends that want to bone you.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 18, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 THE RESTAURANT HAS ITS OWN HERB GARDEN. BECCA GOLDRINGAvenue Writer slogan of the Slow Food Movement. Tempo Bistro To Go, a sandwich shop at 1516 NW 13th St., is embracing the mantra in big ways. John Drum and Debra Pour opened the eatery in November 2010 with a mission to provide the community with artful combinations made from simply good, local ingredients. Almost all of the produce at Tempo Bistro comes from local farms, and the sandwich bread is brought in fresh from local bakeries. Tempo Bistro has also built a strong relationship with Gainesville Compost and makes an impressive claim of almost no food corn-based, compostable and biodegradable. Behind the restaurant, a pallet herb garden hangs artfully on a concrete wall and hosts fresh basil, oregano and rosemary, which go directly into the dishes. Due to an accident in the outdoor compost bin involving a sprouting rogue seed, wild calabaza plants dominate almost half the yard area. In the spirit of fall, Tempo Bistro further embraces the Slow Food Movement by incor porating local calabaza pumpkins from Possum Hollow Farm into its fare. One special, the Sweet Corn and Calabaza Soup, trades a traditional cream base for vegan-friendly coconut milk. Small chunks of sweet yellow corn permeate the velvety broth and mingle with garlic and cayenne pepper. with the subtle taste of lingering pumpkin. Another seasonal special is the Aztec Tempeh Calabaza Chili, which is thick with slow-cooked black beans, local tempeh from The Tempeh Shop, fresh-cut veggies, cocoa, espresso and a full bottle of Blue Moon pumpkin beer. After an essential four and a half hours in a slow cooker, the chili fully assembles to salute autumns savory supremacy. On Nov. 1, Tempo Bistro will introduce the Lowcountry, a southern-style sandwich. It begins with a puree of pumpkin, beets and local honey spread on top of wholesome multigrain bread. Next, vegetarian collard greens, local tempeh, fresh tomato and creamy goat cheese are added in layers to create a balanced sandwich Tempo Bistro believes slow food takes time. But when fresh, local ingredients comChomp and Chew: Tempo Bistro To Go utilizes local ingredients

MEGHAN PRYCEAvenue WriterVolunteer at an animal shelter, be a bridesmaid, visit all 50 states and spend a whole day sleeping. These are only a few bucket list items pinned on Pinterest.com. Bucket lists are a trending topic online and on campus. Even Kevin Jonas has a bucket list. In a recent episode of Married To Jonas, Kevin Jonas revealed the items on his baby bucket list. To Jonas, a baby bucket list is a list of things to do before he starts pushing a baby carriage around. His list features camping, a big family trip, going on tour with the Jonas Brothers and riding a Jet Ski. In August, bucket list was added to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary. et list as a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying. Some UF seniors created bucket lists with what to do before graduating. Gilda Brown, a nutritional science major, said she has a bucket list of things to do around Gainesville. Some to-dos on her list are to go Springs, a trip excursion and to see Jeseeka Gustave, a nursing major, said she would complete her bucket list with all her friends. I wouldnt want to do that stuff alone, Gustave said. Some graduating seniors alI dont think there is anything left to do, said Jorge Gonzalez, a history major. Ive done it all. However, Gonzalez still has things to do on his bucket list for around the world. Gonzalez said he would like like to travel to Europe, Africa and probably Asia. Are you inspired to create a bucket list? Well, theres an app for that. Elliot Darvick, 28, is the cofounder of www.unbucket.com and the Unbucket Facebook app. On Unbucket, you can create a bucket list of things to do and invite people to that list. People can contribute items to the list, which can be public or private, and attach photos, videos and notes to capture the memories. Darvick said the purpose of Unbucket is to bring people closer. I love looking at that completed app and seeing that long list of things of what weve done together, Darvick said. Also seeing emails that something has been added to my list. It lets me know people care about me. Darvick said its important to create a bucket list for yourself and to share it. At the end of the day, its who you do things with, Darvick said. Grades matter, but its all about the moments. 12, ALLIGATOR Alex M. Sanchez / Alligator Strumming SongsFolk singer Laura Marling plays her guitar on stage at High Dive Tuesday. Gainesville is one of those hidden gem towns, she said. trending topic BROCK SENGAvenue Contributing WriterCory Murchy was a young teenager when he had the aha! moment in life. He heard Nirvana That spark caused Murchy to pursue a career as a musician, now playing bass in a band from Seattle called Minus The Bear. Minus The Bear plays Sunday at the Florida Theater with opening acts Cursive and Girl In a Coma. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for $18 on TicketWeb. com. Murchy said it has been a couple of years since the band played in Gainesville, and it looks for ward to returning. Florida has always been a fun place to play, and Gainesville is no different, he said. Murchy considers Minus The Bears genre as rock n roll. We havent allowed ourselves to be pigeonholed into one genre, which is what lead to us being a band for so long, he said. Formed in 2001, Minus The Bear has released from the group, which came out on Aug. 28, is Murchy described the album as soon-to-be classics and said the entire band feels really comfortable and excited about it. He said the name for the band came from a late-night drunken goof ball thing, which refers to the 1970s television show B.J. and The Bear. A friend of the band went on a date, and they asked him how it went. He replied that it went pretty well, a lot like B.J. and The Bear minus The Bear. We thought that was pretty funny at the time, and it just stuck, Murchy said. When it comes to guilty pleasure songs that the band likes to listen to while on tour, he said theyre into Katy Perrys Teenage Dream. That song is pretty damn good, Murchy said, laughing. I wouldnt even say its a guilty pleasure. Its just a pleasure. The upcoming stop in Gainesville will include a mix of old Minus The Bear classics and songs off the new album. Were classic rock for the future, he said. We plan to be around for awhile.Minus The Bear to bring soonto-be classics to Gainesville I love looking at that completed app and seeing that long list of things of what weve done together.Elliot Darvickco-founder of www.unbucket.comBucket lists trending among college students, online

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAvenue WriterThe crowd screamed for Zoe Jakes before it could see her. Jakes, the belly dancer for Beats Antique, crouched behind a white sheet hanging across the Florida Theaters stage. Harsh white backlight painted her image across the suspended canvas, a silhouette that resembled a modernday Shiva: palms tensely faced upward, disblades spiked from each of her elbows. Even Jakes intricate headdress loomed from behind the barrier. The California-based electronic music Gainesville at the Florida Theater last Thursday. About 250 tickets were sold. Behind Jakes, her husband, instrumentalist and composer David Satori, plucked at a viola, producing a high-pitched, gypsyinspired rhythm. Drummer Tommy Cappel pumped a stream of cross-rhythmic notes on his black Tama Starclassic drum set, matching a deeper, synthesized bass line. A raspy trumpet snaked through the songs background. The crowd twisted to the beat, hypnotized by Jakes shadow. Finally, the sound climaxed, and the sheet plummeted, showing Jakes in full costume. Her visage was like a porcelain doll, eyes locked intensely straight ahead. Dark black hair matched the thick charcoal-colored eyeliner around her eyes and her black corset. Scarlet lipstick matched a bright red and gold dress. Tattoos spread down her abdomen and across her shoulder. She was beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Jakes bared her tongue, and the crowd roared in approval. It was the reaction she wanted. Im an entertainer and a performer as much as I am a dancer, Jakes said later backstage. I really enjoy connecting with the audience and making them freak out. The music set her in motion. A wave of her arm and transversing through her stomach toward her hips. Every muscle seemed to have equal control as even the dancers lips swayed back and forth with the rhythm. Jakes beckoned to the crowd with 3-inch golden pointed nails that spired from each of sapphire-, emeraldand ruby-colored ornaments that embellished her gold headdress. beauty mesmerized the audience. For a moment, she had become one of the most powerful women in electronic music, all without making a sound. She is the most entrancing woman Ive seen in my life, said Caleb Herring, a 21-year-old Santa Fe student. Shes a Hindu deity. Its just amazing Out in the crowd, glowing neon hulahoops and pairs of color-changing poi balls orbited through the air. The Florida Theater attracted an audience more wild than Satori, the bands instrumentalist, was used to seeing. It was the 33-yearhe was impressed. We have an older crowd on the West Coast. Kids are here to party, and theyre here to have a good time and freak out. Its a different kind of energy, but its fun to see that response, Satori said. After playing in your hometown for years and not ever having that many people at a show, coming to a place for people you cant get used to it. Audience members wearing animal masks dotted the audience. To the unfamiliar, it looked like a neon National Geographic -themed masquerade. A pair of men in unicorn masks smoked cigarettes on the venues steps. Nearby, a man wearing a mouse-eared beanie and a neon sash made of glow sticks danced next to his friend in a full-body monkey costume. Jared Glosser, a 19-year-old history junior, was pouring with sweat in the monkey costume near the front of the stage. The monkey suit is a tradition between Glosser and eight friends; everyone takes a turn being the monkey at a concert. Beats Antique was Glossers You cant be the monkey for too long, or else it starts getting to you, but tonight is my night, he said. I can get away with any monkey business I want. Beats Antique fosters the eclectic experience. During the shows 20-minute encore, volunteer belly dancers wearing hippopotamus, on stage. All hail the giant squid! Satori yelled as he donned an oversized, fuzzy duck head. He bought the head on vacation in Hawaii before the band formed, Satori said, and Beats Antique was the perfect opportunity to start using it. The band even started selling its own rubber horse masks at shows. We just like the bizarre, weird stuff sometimes, Satori said. We like to give them more than they thought they were going to get.

THE SHOW FEATURED EIGHT MUSICAL ACTS. JESSICA KEGUAvenue WriterWhen Bam Margera comes to Gainesville, he drinks PBR and brings his best friends. Fresh off a plane from Los Angeles for one night only, Margera, best known for Jackass and his own show, Viva la Bam, made an appearance at High Dive Monday night for a crowd of about 30. A number of local and out-of-state bands performed. Sitting at a table surrounded by an entourage of people, not unlike the usual crowd at High Dive, Margera signed whatever was requested, took cellphone pictures, undoubtedly bound for mobile upload albums, and gave his time to anyone who asked for it. While some people were there to support friends in the nights performing bands, others a few die-hards were there solely for a chance to meet Margera. Stephanie Dowling, a 19-yearold graphic design major at Santa Fe College, said not only has she seen everything Margera is in, but, I pretty much own it all too, she said. As soon as she heard he was coming, she called her friend and headed downtown. Fortunately, it was far from sold out, as she had heard it might be. friend and fellow skateboarder Brandon Novak for most of the night, and, between the two, a bit of Jackass-style antics ensued. After explaining to the audience that Novak had just stolen and crashed his S55 Mercedes into another car of nearly equal value, Mar gera delivered a fair and solid punch to his right-hand man. The crowd cheered and the two embraced. About $140,000 of damage had not created bad blood between them. In an upstairs room of High Dive, the level of friendship they share became clear. When you understand Novaks entire left arm, which is tattooed up and down with ink dedicated in its entirety to Margera, you start to get it. He recounted the times Margera has saved his life in the way that only a best friend can recognizing lies and being constantly present, even when it is undeserved. At 12 years old, they met as arch nemeses in the skateboarding world, and by age 15, Margera was calling his bluffs. Novak sometimes said he was going to Baltimore for something odd, and Margera knew Novak sought drugs there. Once, he told me he was going to Baltimore to pick up a pair of jeans he left there, Margera said. Novak chimed in, This guy waited for me for hours. This kid saved my life I dont know how many times. When asked why he came to Gainesville, he said when somebody offers you a chance to party somewhere with your friends, you take it. He further explained he is on a tour of publicity appearances, for his upcoming show, which will air on TBS. He said they will both be rescheduled. Though didnt reveal the name of the show, he said it will be similar to Jackass, but he and others will serve on a panel, judging viewers videos of stunts and rating them. He explained he has also been doing art recently. A blurry picture on his cracked cellphone was the only example he had to offer. The medium? Tempera paint, watercolor and egg yolk. This guy waited for me for hours. This kid saved my life I dont know how many times.Brandon NovakPROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator WriterThe Gators were historically good on defense last season. They held opponents to 60.8 points per game second-fewest in program history. Only the 1983-84 team allowed fewer, giving up 59.1 points per contest. In conference play, Florida performed even better, allowing 58.6 points per game, There were times in the year when our defense really carried us and put us in position to win big games, coach Amanda Butler said. Floridas win against No. 18 Georgia on season, the Gators needed to beat a top-25 team to better their chances of making the NCAA Tournament. Holding the Bulldogs to 38.6 percent shooting, the Gators won 61-57. Georgias 57 points were nearly 12 fewer than its season average. Floridas performance was representative of the entire season. Opponents shot just 38.3 percent lowest percentage against a Gators team in more than a decade. This season, defense will again be the teams identity. When we start teaching and building this team, we start with defense, Butler said. Our defense allows us to play fast and attack and be athletic. With seven freshmen, Butler will be required to do more teaching than usual. Additionally, the Gators lost two of their most dynamic defenders from a year ago. bined for 106 steals, but both were seniors. Jordan Jones also played a role in Floridas press before graduating at the end of last season. As a team, Florida forced nearly 18 turnovers per game. Despite the losses, Butler expects her team to have the same mindset. No question that we lost a lot in those three, but from the things I have seen thus far, I really like what Ive seen, she said. Jaterra Bonds, one of two returning starters from last seasons team, said practices have been demanding in the early going. Half-court defense has been stressed as newcomers learn terminology, spacing and assignments. When the coaches harp on defense, Bonds said, everybody should be paying attention. If you dont play defense for Butler, If you want to play, you have to play defense. No question. Butler pushes her team to focus defensively, because the Gators can bring strong defense even when their shots arent falling. We can count on our defense Nov. 9; we can count on our defense March 9, Butler said. Regardless of the way our team evolves and regardless of who we are playing, that should be a mainstay for us. David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior guard Jaterra Bonds poses at media day on Oct. 10. Bonds, who is one of two returning starters for Florida this season, said defense is an emphasis for the Gators. Florida aiming to build on last years strong defensive effortVOLLEYBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterSince the season began, coach Mary Wise has described No. 11 Florida as a grind-it-out team. If the Gators are the group of grinders that Wise claims they are, Holly Pole is the poster child. The sophomore defensive specialist out of Ocala has never been asked to get the game-winning kill or assist, but she is the workhouse off the bench that serves and scrapes up digs. Holly has been typical of the theme, Wise said. She is one of the scenes and will just do her job. Shes not going to score the points to help us win, but shes going to do what we need her to do to keep us from losing. sophomore Madison Monserez were both reserves in the back row. Pole hit two service aces and made 85 digs in 60 sets. This year, the Ocala Vanguard High grad already has 16 aces and 108 digs good for second and third on the team while playing in 57 of UFs 59 sets. She said she has embraced her role as the gritty defensive specialist this year, which is why her numbers and productivity have increased despite the fact that she plays in only half of UFs rotations. The time I do get on the court I try to make the most of it and try and make the plays I should make and then go above and beyond and make the ones maybe I shouldnt make, Pole said. Its just part of my role. Im not going to get kills. Im just making sure I can help hold down the back row and take care of the ball when I need to. Wise said Pole played her breakthrough game Friday against Ole Miss. She hit a career-high three ser vice aces and racked up a seasonhigh 13 digs in three sets off the bench. Her performance during the weekend leaves Pole trailing only Taylor Unroe and Ziva Recek in digs. She is behind only Unroe for the team lead in aces. Holly perhaps had her best match of the season, Wise said of the match against Ole Miss. She was solid in the back row. Unroe, Floridas libero, leads the team with 256 digs but said she is grateful for having Pole to bail her out. Its really nice because Holly and I have a really good, trusting relationship in passing and defense, Unroe said. Its nice to know theres someone back there who, if maybe youre not at the top of your game that day, she can back me up.Sophomore embodies Gators hard-nosed mentality on defensePole UF W omens Bask etball

an ACL tear in his left knee last October, leads the Southeastern Conference with 129 carries in seven games this season. Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was limited in practice on Wednesday due to a sore foot, Spurrier said. Clowney ranks third in the SEC with 12 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks this season. South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington, offensive tackle Mike Matulis and cornerback Jimmy Legree missed practice on bug going around, Spurrier said. Some guys just been sick the last two or three days. Quinn considers Powell elite: Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is missing Ronald Powell this season. Quinn said Powell would have likely earned praise similar to that received by South Carolinas Clowney and LSUs Barkevious Mingo as one of the top defensive ends in the SEC this season. He would have been mentioned with those guys, Quinn said. The improvement from the last fall through the spring, it was Coaches raved about Powells performance during spring practices April. Powell suffered an ACL tear in his left knee during the spring game on April 7. Each practice, you saw him grow and take steps forward, Quinn said. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffOmarius Hines (20) hauls in a 39-yard catch during the fourth quarter of Floridas 20-17 win against Texas A&M at Kyle Field on Sept. 8. AP PhotoRunning back Marcus Lattimore (21) runs away from Kentuckys Mike Douglas (50) during South Carolinas 38-17 win on Sept. 29. SPURRIER AND MUSCHAMP BOTH USE RUN-HEAVY OFFENSES. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterSouth Carolina plays the same brand of smash-mouth football that Florida has begun to master. Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier, the man who brought the Fun n Gun offense to the Southeastern Conference, has adjusted his system to suit his players. South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore leads the SEC in rushing attempts with 129 carries for 584 yards. The Gators Mike Gillislee is second with 120 carries. He is also second in rushing yards with 615. UFs Jeff Driskel and USCs Connor Shaw average just 18.5 and 18 pass attempts per game, respectively. They rank last and next to last in the SEC. We dont throw more than 20-25 passes a game and try to run the ball and play super defense and excellent special teams, Spurrier said. I would think both teams are trying to do that. Athletic linebackers, a ball-hawking secondary and increased depth have Floridas defense ranked 13th in the nation. South Carolina ranks No. 12. Since these two teams are so similar, facing each other in practice might be the best preparation for the Gators. We practice against our defense every day, so I feel like theyre going to have a good game because of that, right guard Jon Halapio said. [The defense is] pretty much used to a mobile quarterback and a good running back. Perhaps the only difference between these two is each teams performance against LSU. The Gators wore down the Tigers with 176 rushing yards and 25-straight runs to close out a 14-6 home victory on Oct. 6. South Carolina didnt fare as well dur ing their visit to Baton Rouge, La., last week. LSU pestered Shaw all night and gained 258 rushing yards. Floridas performance against LSU gives the into Saturdays matchup. I feel like we can do that against anybody, really, Halapio said. Just the way we practice. Just the way our mentality is this year. Were just really relentless, especially up front. Yeah, pretty much, we can wear down anybody. I feel pretty strong about that. Florida has dropped its past two games in the series with South Carolina, adding motivation to its attempt to beat the Gamecocks at their own game. Florida squandered a chance at an SEC title game appearance in 2010, when these two teams last faced each other in Gainesville. Senior safety Josh Evans called losing that game a feeling hell never forget. You also want to go out there and just to get this win. It would mean a lot to this team A win on Saturday puts the Gators two games up in the SEC Eastern Division. For the Gamecocks, a win keeps them in national title contention and continues their recent success against Florida. We realize its an extremely important game down there in The Swamp, Spurrier said. Hopefully, our guys will be ready to play their best one of the year. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator. org.Florida, South Carolina enter matchup with similar styles receiver or watching the rush. As a quarterback, you cant do that. The lack of big plays against the Commodores can also be attributed to drops and the Gators taking advantage of the worst rushing defense in the SEC. Flor ida had no reason to throw the ball and risk turnovers if Driskel could keep running wild as Vanderbilt failed to adjust to the read-option. Despite throwing for just 61 yards against LSU, Florida won by rushing for 160 yards in the second half. No one should fault the Gators for sticking to whats working. While getting those rushing yards might not be as easy on Saturday against South Carolidefense in the country, UF will still have opportunities to make plays through the air. The Gamecocks have allowed 20 or more yards on a passing play 20 times this season, tied for 66th in the nation. LSU showed on Saturday that UF wont need a dominant passing attack to defeat South Carolina. The Tigers beat the Gamecocks 23-21 and rushed for 258 yards while throwing for only 148. That ratio is a good target for the Gators. But, if they continue to run this effectively, it shouldnt be a goal. Whether [Driskel] ends up throwing for 300 or rushing for a record like he does, I dont really care how it gets done, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. As long as were productive with what we do and score points. Pease is right not to put too much on Driskel. Asking him to throw for 300 yards in any game would be a stretch. Driskel just needs to make enough plays to keep defenses honest, which he has shown the ability to do. If he can do that, the offense will Contact Josh Jurnovoy @jjurnovoy@alligator.org. JOSH, from page 17Gamecocks dealing with rash of injuries NOTES, from page 17 theyre doing. We can actually play quicker in a game. Better knowledge of the system has also led to improved communication in the secondary. Players have a better understanding of where they have to line up in the for mation, which frees them to make plays. Evans also credited the secondarys improvement to The ability to recognize a pass route as it is developing gives UFs defensive backs extra time to get in position and make a play, Evans said. While the coaches have emphasized turnovers since the beginning of last season, Quinn said the players have started to put more focus on generating takeaways. Although we emphasized it last year, maybe the players to each other are emphasizing it more, Quinn said. When another teammates telling you and reminding you, maybe thats a little different. When it comes from a player or another teammate, I think that adds value. Linebacker Jon Bostic said Floridas opponents also factor in the shift. Teams are attempting 35 passes per game against UF this season, compared to only 26.2 per game last year. Offenses are playing a lot more aggressive than they were last year, Bostic said. They have to put the ball in the air and do a lot of different things to win games. For the second season in a row, UF coaches are emphasizing attacking the ball in the air and going for a strip once carrier wrapped up. In 2012, the results of that show. We practice every day on creating turnovers, Hunter said. Its just carrying over to the game. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. TURNOVERS, from page 17 Emphasis paying offShaw

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 COACHES EXPECTED HARRIS TO HELP UFS FRONTCOURT IN PRACTICE. KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterDamontre Harris knew he would have to sit out the season when he transferred to Florida from South Carolina in May, but he hoped he could at least help the team during practice. This is a great year for me to get real better so I can have an opportunity to show all my talent next year when I have the oppor tunity to play, Harris said on Oct. 10. I just love to compete, so I think Ill be able to help [the team] out a lot. However, Harris will no longer bring depth to Floridas practices. Coach Billy Donovan announced on Wednesday that Harris dislocated his shoulder and suffered a labrum tear when a teammate fell on him during a weekend practice. Harris plans to consult his family and a doctor before deciding whether he should have surgery. If he undergoes surgery, the junior would be out of practice until at least March. If he doesnt have surgery, the likelihood of it popping out again is a pretty high per centage, Donovan said. [Torn labrums], if you do do surgery, are a long, long time to heal. Youre probably talking him being out for four to six months. Harris would have sat out this year regardless because of NCAA transfer rules, but he hoped to contribute in practice.

Owners could be entitled to refunds for e-books purchased from April 1, 2010, to May 21, according to an email sent to customers from the Amazon Kindle Team. e-books, customers may receive 30 cents to $1.32 for each eligible purchase. Although Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster deny doing anything wrong, they have settled a lawsuit that makes a $69 million fund to give credit back to consumers. Jonathan Cohen, a UF law professor, said a judge has grounds to sign this order because both parties have worked at a settlement, and it is enforceable. In this case, he said, its the courts decision. If passed, the lawsuit would also limit publishers ability to set e-book prices.

BONES, from page 1 CARINA SEAGRAVEAlligator Contributing WriterAn American cyclists controversial decision to step down from his position at the Livestrong Foundation sparked mixed reactions in Gainesville on Wednesday. Lance Armstrong, accused of doping to win his seven Tour de France races, shocked many by vacating his chair in his own organization. The foundation dedicates itself to empowering and inspiring people with cancer, according to its website. Armstrong was respected for his athleticism, but failed to uphold his achievements through the accusations of cheating held against him, said Team Florida Cycling president Dustin White. Everyone contests the sport of cycling is so hard and it truly is, said the 21-year-old mechanical engineering senior. He had to overcome immense personal battles, but any edge to overcome the challenges of the sport, any shortcut, is bad. White said he agreed with the athletes renunciaVirginia Maurer, UF professor of business law and director of the Poe Center for Business Ethics, wrote in an email that Armstrongs choice to walk away from Livestrong was more than appropriate. A leader who has been disgraced for ethical or legal reasons should step down from his or her position, she said, because it is better for the organization. Leadership requires trust especially when the group that leader is representing is a charity, Maurer said. Brian Ray, UF lecturer for leadership and ethics and director of the Heavener School of Business, agreed. His conclusion was Armstrongs reputation was not as important as the mission of the foundation. Dylan Wade, a cyclist with TriGators for four years, said he believes Armstrongs philanthropy should still be recognized regardless of the allegations against him. far as the medias concerned, but I dont think he should just walk away, said the 21-year-old psychology and criminology senior. Fellow Tri-Gator and acting junior Ryan Oates, 22, said hes skeptical of the accusations. To me, Lance Armstrong was a superhuman that people idolize like UF students idolize Tim Tebow, he said.

Her parents, both German Jews, were never held captive in Nazi concentration camps. Rather, they lin to Eastern Europe before World War II began. Its not the standard World War II or Holocaust story, Grossmann said. Her talk is a new reading of the Holocaust. Her reading is very closely related to her family story, which makes it even more interesting,said Anna Muller, a lecturer for the Center for European Studies.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 THE SHOW IS OCT. 24. KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterIt is time to get your head out of your midterm study guides and into the music, because the Passion Pit show is seven days away. This is not a concert you can just walk into saying, Man, I really like that one song in the Taco Bell commercial. No. Passion Pit deserves more than that. So here is a song-a-day guide to get excited for the blood, sweat and tears that will be the Passion Pit show. (OK, maybe not blood, alToday: Ive Got Your Number (album: Chunk of Change EP) This song is a study break better than a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte in the library. The introduction is head-bobbingly catchy and moves into this epic, angsty chorus Have you seen me cry/tears like diamonds? Youll be vibing hard around you will be too engrossed in their Study Edge packets to notice. Friday: Moths Wings (album: Manners) This is a Friday afternoon song. It starts out laid back, like youre walking out of your last class of the week. And then it goes into this huge, happy chorus, and suddenly youre dancing across campus. You may have failed your chemistry test and went hungover to your 8:30 a.m. class, but its OK, because homework doesnt exist until Sunday. Saturday: Little Secrets (album: Manners) Its gameday, so obviously a pump-up song is necessary. Little Secrets is the perfect sorry-forpartying rave song. So on gameday, rave around campus tailgates, rave your way to the stadium and rave your way to Midtown after we beat South Carolina. Alright, maybe that was cocky. The game could go either way, so for Sunday, Im providing two song options. If we win: Its Not My Fault, Im Happy (album: Gossamer) You wont even be able to hear the haters. If we lose: Ill Be Alright (album: Gossamer) Youll most likely wake up on the feeling of regret over what may or may not have happened last night, but dont worry. Youll be alright. Monday: Sleepyhead (album: Manners) Just another manic Monday? No. Because its the week of the show, and what better way to start it than a groggy bus ride listening to the bands most popular song? Tuesday: Where We Belong (album: Gossamer) Its Passion Pit Eve. Its time to meditate on the magnitude of the event that you will be attend tomor row. Remember all of the moments youve shared with the band by your side and smile at the fact that youll be reliving it all in only 24 hours. Maybe youll cry yourself to sleep later, but its OK, because the next day is basically Christmas. Wednesday: Carried Away (Album: Gossamer) Let the bubbly-ness of this song carry you away to the ODome for ing, beautiful night of your life. If you dont have tickets, there are still some tier seats available at p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are $15 for students and $25 for the general public. Listen up: a Passion Pit song for every day of the week Dear Mediocre Advice, I had a friend tell me he would totally bang me if I would let him. While I appreciate the honesty, Im pretty sure I dont want to bang said friend. Ive had this happen before and ignored it, and weve managed to stay pretty good friends. Do you think this is the way I should handle it this time? Or should I be honest and risk hurting his feelings and/or our friendship? Dear Friend, Every being on the planet can turn into a monster if his or her sleep is constantly disrupted. Before she goes out or before you go to sleep, tell her that she and her friends need to be quiet if theyre going to hang out all night at your place. If she brings back people and they wake you up, then you get to be angry and tell them to shut up. Its your house too. You and your roommate need to come to an agreement, so you can get your sleep, and she can socialize at an unnecessary hour. Its not your fault you have a different lifestyle and choose blessed sleep over hanging out until 2:30 a.m. Maybe she can go to someone elses place, or they can go to a part of the house, possibly her room, where you cant hear the chatter. Its not a lot to ask for especially if its every night of the week. If you have already thought about buying earplugs, this has gone on too long, and youre being too nice. Dear Peter, Boobs are a valued part of the body as long as youre outside of a strip club. If men and women had topless equality, no one would appreciate boobs. It would lower their value, similar to how no one cares when a dude takes off his shirt (unless he has the abs of Thor). Were just covering up our girls, and dudes have nothing to hide. Its kind of like when a chubby guy doesnt want to take off his shirt to go in the pool because he has man-boobs. Of course hes nervous to take his shirt off! Hes got boobs, and everyone is going to look at them obviously not in the same way you would gaze at a womans breasts, but you get the point. Boobs are precious and beautiful spots of fat. Also, this doesnt mean its OK for every guy to take off his shirt. I know if I dont see some kind of proof of an ab workout, Ill be Dear Friend, I appreciate your interest, but Mediocre Advice is my baby cub. Its just me, my laptop, these questions and no pants.

I already block out the bright kitchen light with something. Im afraid if I buy earplugs to drown out the chatter, I wont hear my alarm. I dont want to be that b*tchy roommate who comes out disgruntled in pajamas and says, HEY, shut the F up!

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 THE RESTAURANT HAS ITS OWN HERB GARDEN. BECCA GOLDRINGAvenue Writer slogan of the Slow Food Movement. Tempo Bistro To Go, a sandwich shop at 1516 NW 13th St., is embracing the mantra in big ways. John Drum and Debra Pour opened the eatery in November 2010 with a mission to provide the community with artful combinations made from simply good, local ingredients. Almost all of the produce at Tempo Bistro comes from local farms, and the sandwich bread is brought in fresh from local bakeries. Tempo Bistro has also built a strong relationship with Gainesville Compost and makes an impressive claim of almost no food corn-based, compostable and biodegradable. Behind the restaurant, a pallet herb garden hangs artfully on a concrete wall and hosts fresh basil, oregano and rosemary, which go directly into the dishes. Due to an accident in the outdoor compost bin involving a sprouting rogue seed, wild calabaza plants dominate almost half the yard area. In the spirit of fall, Tempo Bistro further embraces the Slow Food Movement by incor porating local calabaza pumpkins from Possum Hollow Farm into its fare. One special, the Sweet Corn and Calabaza Soup, trades a traditional cream base for vegan-friendly coconut milk. Small chunks of sweet yellow corn permeate the velvety broth and mingle with garlic and cayenne pepper. with the subtle taste of lingering pumpkin. Another seasonal special is the Aztec Tempeh Calabaza Chili, which is thick with slow-cooked black beans, local tempeh from The Tempeh Shop, fresh-cut veggies, cocoa, espresso and a full bottle of Blue Moon pumpkin beer. After an essential four and a half hours in a slow cooker, the chili fully assembles to salute autumns savory supremacy. On Nov. 1, Tempo Bistro will introduce the Lowcountry, a southern-style sandwich. It begins with a puree of pumpkin, beets and local honey spread on top of wholesome multigrain bread. Next, vegetarian collard greens, local tempeh, fresh tomato and creamy goat cheese are added in layers to create a balanced sandwich Tempo Bistro believes slow food takes time. But when fresh, local ingredients comChomp and Chew: Tempo Bistro To Go utilizes local ingredients

MEGHAN PRYCEAvenue WriterVolunteer at an animal shelter, be a bridesmaid, visit all 50 states and spend a whole day sleeping. These are only a few bucket list items pinned on Pinterest.com. Bucket lists are a trending topic online and on campus. Even Kevin Jonas has a bucket list. In a recent episode of Married To Jonas, Kevin Jonas revealed the items on his baby bucket list. To Jonas, a baby bucket list is a list of things to do before he starts pushing a baby carriage around. His list features camping, a big family trip, going on tour with the Jonas Brothers and riding a Jet Ski. In August, bucket list was added to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary. et list as a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying. Some UF seniors created bucket lists with what to do before graduating. Gilda Brown, a nutritional science major, said she has a bucket list of things to do around Gainesville. Some to-dos on her list are to go Springs, a trip excursion and to see Jeseeka Gustave, a nursing major, said she would complete her bucket list with all her friends. I wouldnt want to do that stuff alone, Gustave said. Some graduating seniors alI dont think there is anything left to do, said Jorge Gonzalez, a history major. Ive done it all. However, Gonzalez still has things to do on his bucket list for around the world. Gonzalez said he would like like to travel to Europe, Africa and probably Asia. Are you inspired to create a bucket list? Well, theres an app for that. Elliot Darvick, 28, is the cofounder of www.unbucket.com and the Unbucket Facebook app. On Unbucket, you can create a bucket list of things to do and invite people to that list. People can contribute items to the list, which can be public or private, and attach photos, videos and notes to capture the memories. Darvick said the purpose of Unbucket is to bring people closer. I love looking at that completed app and seeing that long list of things of what weve done together, Darvick said. Also seeing emails that something has been added to my list. It lets me know people care about me. Darvick said its important to create a bucket list for yourself and to share it. At the end of the day, its who you do things with, Darvick said. Grades matter, but its all about the moments. 12, ALLIGATOR Alex M. Sanchez / Alligator Strumming SongsFolk singer Laura Marling plays her guitar on stage at High Dive Tuesday. Gainesville is one of those hidden gem towns, she said. trending topic BROCK SENGAvenue Contributing WriterCory Murchy was a young teenager when he had the aha! moment in life. He heard Nirvana That spark caused Murchy to pursue a career as a musician, now playing bass in a band from Seattle called Minus The Bear. Minus The Bear plays Sunday at the Florida Theater with opening acts Cursive and Girl In a Coma. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for $18 on TicketWeb. com. Murchy said it has been a couple of years since the band played in Gainesville, and it looks forward to returning. Florida has always been a fun place to play, and Gainesville is no different, he said. Murchy considers Minus The Bears genre as rock n roll. We havent allowed ourselves to be pigeonholed into one genre, which is what lead to us being a band for so long, he said. Formed in 2001, Minus The Bear has released from the group, which came out on Aug. 28, is Murchy described the album as soon-to-be classics and said the entire band feels really comfortable and excited about it. He said the name for the band came from a late-night drunken goof ball thing, which refers to the 1970s television show B.J. and The Bear. A friend of the band went on a date, and they asked him how it went. He replied that it went pretty well, a lot like B.J. and The Bear minus The Bear. We thought that was pretty funny at the time, and it just stuck, Murchy said. When it comes to guilty pleasure songs that the band likes to listen to while on tour, he said theyre into Katy Perrys Teenage Dream. That song is pretty damn good, Murchy said, laughing. I wouldnt even say its a guilty pleasure. Its just a pleasure. The upcoming stop in Gainesville will include a mix of old Minus The Bear classics and songs off the new album. Were classic rock for the future, he said. We plan to be around for awhile.Minus The Bear to bring soonto-be classics to Gainesville I love looking at that completed app and seeing that long list of things of what weve done together.Elliot Darvickco-founder of www.unbucket.comBucket lists trending among college students, online

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAvenue WriterThe crowd screamed for Zoe Jakes before it could see her. Jakes, the belly dancer for Beats Antique, crouched behind a white sheet hanging across the Florida Theaters stage. Harsh white backlight painted her image across the suspended canvas, a silhouette that resembled a modernday Shiva: palms tensely faced upward, disblades spiked from each of her elbows. Even Jakes intricate headdress loomed from behind the barrier. The California-based electronic music Gainesville at the Florida Theater last Thursday. About 250 tickets were sold. Behind Jakes, her husband, instrumentalist and composer David Satori, plucked at a viola, producing a high-pitched, gypsyinspired rhythm. Drummer Tommy Cappel pumped a stream of cross-rhythmic notes on his black Tama Starclassic drum set, matching a deeper, synthesized bass line. A raspy trumpet snaked through the songs background. The crowd twisted to the beat, hypnotized by Jakes shadow. Finally, the sound climaxed, and the sheet plummeted, showing Jakes in full costume. Her visage was like a porcelain doll, eyes locked intensely straight ahead. Dark black hair matched the thick charcoal-colored eyeliner around her eyes and her black corset. Scarlet lipstick matched a bright red and gold dress. Tattoos spread down her abdomen and across her shoulder. She was beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Jakes bared her tongue, and the crowd roared in approval. It was the reaction she wanted. Im an entertainer and a performer as much as I am a dancer, Jakes said later backstage. I really enjoy connecting with the audience and making them freak out. The music set her in motion. A wave of her arm and transversing through her stomach toward her hips. Every muscle seemed to have equal control as even the dancers lips swayed back and forth with the rhythm. Jakes beckoned to the crowd with 3-inch golden pointed nails that spired from each of sapphire-, emeraldand ruby-colored ornaments that embellished her gold headdress. beauty mesmerized the audience. For a moment, she had become one of the most powerful women in electronic music, all without making a sound. She is the most entrancing woman Ive seen in my life, said Caleb Herring, a 21-year-old Santa Fe student. Shes a Hindu deity. Its just amazing Out in the crowd, glowing neon hulahoops and pairs of color-changing poi balls orbited through the air. The Florida Theater attracted an audience more wild than Satori, the bands instrumentalist, was used to seeing. It was the 33-yearhe was impressed. We have an older crowd on the West Coast. Kids are here to party, and theyre here to have a good time and freak out. Its a different kind of energy, but its fun to see that response, Satori said. After playing in your hometown for years and not ever having that many people at a show, coming to a place for people you cant get used to it. Audience members wearing animal masks dotted the audience. To the unfamiliar, it looked like a neon National Geographic -themed masquerade. A pair of men in unicorn masks smoked cigarettes on the venues steps. Nearby, a man wearing a mouse-eared beanie and a neon sash made of glow sticks danced next to his friend in a full-body monkey costume. Jared Glosser, a 19-year-old history junior, was pouring with sweat in the monkey costume near the front of the stage. The monkey suit is a tradition between Glosser and eight friends; everyone takes a turn being the monkey at a concert. Beats Antique was Glossers You cant be the monkey for too long, or else it starts getting to you, but tonight is my night, he said. I can get away with any monkey business I want. Beats Antique fosters the eclectic experience. During the shows 20-minute encore, volunteer belly dancers wearing hippopotamus, on stage. All hail the giant squid! Satori yelled as he donned an oversized, fuzzy duck head. He bought the head on vacation in Hawaii before the band formed, Satori said, and Beats Antique was the perfect opportunity to start using it. The band even started selling its own rubber horse masks at shows. We just like the bizarre, weird stuff sometimes, Satori said. We like to give them more than they thought they were going to get.

THE SHOW FEATURED EIGHT MUSICAL ACTS. JESSICA KEGUAvenue WriterWhen Bam Margera comes to Gainesville, he drinks PBR and brings his best friends. Fresh off a plane from Los Angeles for one night only, Margera, best known for Jackass and his own show, Viva la Bam, made an appearance at High Dive Monday night for a crowd of about 30. A number of local and out-of-state bands performed. Sitting at a table surrounded by an entourage of people, not unlike the usual crowd at High Dive, Margera signed whatever was requested, took cellphone pictures, undoubtedly bound for mobile upload albums, and gave his time to anyone who asked for it. While some people were there to support friends in the nights performing bands, others a few die-hards were there solely for a chance to meet Margera. Stephanie Dowling, a 19-yearold graphic design major at Santa Fe College, said not only has she seen everything Margera is in, but, I pretty much own it all too, she said. As soon as she heard he was coming, she called her friend and headed downtown. Fortunately, it was far from sold out, as she had heard it might be. friend and fellow skateboarder Brandon Novak for most of the night, and, between the two, a bit of Jackass-style antics ensued. After explaining to the audience that Novak had just stolen and crashed his S55 Mercedes into another car of nearly equal value, Mar gera delivered a fair and solid punch to his right-hand man. The crowd cheered and the two embraced. About $140,000 of damage had not created bad blood between them. In an upstairs room of High Dive, the level of friendship they share became clear. When you understand Novaks entire left arm, which is tattooed up and down with ink dedicated in its entirety to Margera, you start to get it. He recounted the times Margera has saved his life in the way that only a best friend can recognizing lies and being constantly present, even when it is undeserved. At 12 years old, they met as arch nemeses in the skateboarding world, and by age 15, Margera was calling his bluffs. Novak sometimes said he was going to Baltimore for something odd, and Margera knew Novak sought drugs there. Once, he told me he was going to Baltimore to pick up a pair of jeans he left there, Margera said. Novak chimed in, This guy waited for me for hours. This kid saved my life I dont know how many times. When asked why he came to Gainesville, he said when somebody offers you a chance to party somewhere with your friends, you take it. He further explained he is on a tour of publicity appearances, for his upcoming show, which will air on TBS. He said they will both be rescheduled. Though didnt reveal the name of the show, he said it will be similar to Jackass, but he and others will serve on a panel, judging viewers videos of stunts and rating them. He explained he has also been doing art recently. A blurry picture on his cracked cellphone was the only example he had to offer. The medium? Tempera paint, watercolor and egg yolk. This guy waited for me for hours. This kid saved my life I dont know how many times.Brandon NovakPROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator WriterThe Gators were historically good on defense last season. They held opponents to 60.8 points per game second-fewest in program history. Only the 1983-84 team allowed fewer, giving up 59.1 points per contest. In conference play, Florida performed even better, allowing 58.6 points per game, There were times in the year when our defense really carried us and put us in position to win big games, coach Amanda Butler said. Floridas win against No. 18 Georgia on season, the Gators needed to beat a top-25 team to better their chances of making the NCAA Tournament. Holding the Bulldogs to 38.6 percent shooting, the Gators won 61-57. Georgias 57 points were nearly 12 fewer than its season average. Floridas performance was representative of the entire season. Opponents shot just 38.3 percent lowest percentage against a Gators team in more than a decade. This season, defense will again be the teams identity. When we start teaching and building this team, we start with defense, Butler said. Our defense allows us to play fast and attack and be athletic. With seven freshmen, Butler will be required to do more teaching than usual. Additionally, the Gators lost two of their most dynamic defenders from a year ago. bined for 106 steals, but both were seniors. Jordan Jones also played a role in Floridas press before graduating at the end of last season. As a team, Florida forced nearly 18 turnovers per game. Despite the losses, Butler expects her team to have the same mindset. No question that we lost a lot in those three, but from the things I have seen thus far, I really like what Ive seen, she said. Jaterra Bonds, one of two returning starters from last seasons team, said practices have been demanding in the early going. Half-court defense has been stressed as newcomers learn terminology, spacing and assignments. When the coaches harp on defense, Bonds said, everybody should be paying attention. If you dont play defense for Butler, If you want to play, you have to play defense. No question. Butler pushes her team to focus defensively, because the Gators can bring strong defense even when their shots arent falling. We can count on our defense Nov. 9; we can count on our defense March 9, Butler said. Regardless of the way our team evolves and regardless of who we are playing, that should be a mainstay for us. David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior guard Jaterra Bonds poses at media day on Oct. 10. Bonds, who is one of two returning starters for Florida this season, said defense is an emphasis for the Gators. Florida aiming to build on last years strong defensive effortVOLLEYBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterSince the season began, coach Mary Wise has described No. 11 Florida as a grind-it-out team. If the Gators are the group of grinders that Wise claims they are, Holly Pole is the poster child. The sophomore defensive specialist out of Ocala has never been asked to get the game-winning kill or assist, but she is the workhouse off the bench that serves and scrapes up digs. Holly has been typical of the theme, Wise said. She is one of the scenes and will just do her job. Shes not going to score the points to help us win, but shes going to do what we need her to do to keep us from losing. sophomore Madison Monserez were both reserves in the back row. Pole hit two service aces and made 85 digs in 60 sets. This year, the Ocala Vanguard High grad already has 16 aces and 108 digs good for second and third on the team while playing in 57 of UFs 59 sets. She said she has embraced her role as the gritty defensive specialist this year, which is why her numbers and productivity have increased despite the fact that she plays in only half of UFs rotations. The time I do get on the court I try to make the most of it and try and make the plays I should make and then go above and beyond and make the ones maybe I shouldnt make, Pole said. Its just part of my role. Im not going to get kills. Im just making sure I can help hold down the back row and take care of the ball when I need to. Wise said Pole played her breakthrough game Friday against Ole Miss. She hit a career-high three ser vice aces and racked up a seasonhigh 13 digs in three sets off the bench. Her performance during the weekend leaves Pole trailing only Taylor Unroe and Ziva Recek in digs. She is behind only Unroe for the team lead in aces. Holly perhaps had her best match of the season, Wise said of the match against Ole Miss. She was solid in the back row. Unroe, Floridas libero, leads the team with 256 digs but said she is grateful for having Pole to bail her out. Its really nice because Holly and I have a really good, trusting relationship in passing and defense, Unroe said. Its nice to know theres someone back there who, if maybe youre not at the top of your game that day, she can back me up.Sophomore embodies Gators hard-nosed mentality on defensePole UF Womens Bask etball

an ACL tear in his left knee last October, leads the Southeastern Conference with 129 carries in seven games this season. Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was limited in practice on Wednesday due to a sore foot, Spurrier said. Clowney ranks third in the SEC with 12 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks this season. South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington, offensive tackle Mike Matulis and cornerback Jimmy Legree missed practice on bug going around, Spurrier said. Some guys just been sick the last two or three days. Quinn considers Powell elite: Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is missing Ronald Powell this season. Quinn said Powell would have likely earned praise similar to that received by South Carolinas Clowney and LSUs Barkevious Mingo as one of the top defensive ends in the SEC this season. He would have been mentioned with those guys, Quinn said. The improvement from the last fall through the spring, it was Coaches raved about Powells performance during spring practices April. Powell suffered an ACL tear in his left knee during the spring game on April 7. Each practice, you saw him grow and take steps forward, Quinn said. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

AP PhotoRunning back Marcus Lattimore (21) runs away from Kentuckys Mike Douglas (50) during South Carolinas 38-17 win on Sept. 29. SPURRIER AND MUSCHAMP BOTH USE RUN-HEAVY OFFENSES. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterSouth Carolina plays the same brand of smash-mouth football that Florida has begun to master. Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier, the man who brought the Fun n Gun offense to the Southeastern Conference, has adjusted his system to suit his players. South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore leads the SEC in rushing attempts with 129 carries for 584 yards. The Gators Mike Gillislee is second with 120 carries. He is also second in rushing yards with 615. UFs Jeff Driskel and USCs Connor Shaw average just 18.5 and 18 pass attempts per game, respectively. They rank last and next to last in the SEC. We dont throw more than 20-25 passes a game and try to run the ball and play super defense and excellent special teams, Spurrier said. I would think both teams are trying to do that. Athletic linebackers, a ball-hawking secondary and increased depth have Floridas defense ranked 13th in the nation. South Carolina ranks No. 12. Since these two teams are so similar, facing each other in practice might be the best preparation for the Gators. We practice against our defense every day, so I feel like theyre going to have a good game because of that, right guard Jon Halapio said. [The defense is] pretty much used to a mobile quarterback and a good running back. Perhaps the only difference between these two is each teams performance against LSU. The Gators wore down the Tigers with 176 rushing yards and 25-straight runs to close out a 14-6 home victory on Oct. 6. South Carolina didnt fare as well during their visit to Baton Rouge, La., last week. LSU pestered Shaw all night and gained 258 rushing yards. Floridas performance against LSU gives the into Saturdays matchup. I feel like we can do that against anybody, really, Halapio said. Just the way we practice. Just the way our mentality is this year. Were just really relentless, especially up front. Yeah, pretty much, we can wear down anybody. I feel pretty strong about that. Florida has dropped its past two games in the series with South Carolina, adding motivation to its attempt to beat the Gamecocks at their own game. Florida squandered a chance at an SEC title game appearance in 2010, when these two teams last faced each other in Gainesville. Senior safety Josh Evans called losing that game a feeling hell never forget. You also want to go out there and just to get this win. It would mean a lot to this team A win on Saturday puts the Gators two games up in the SEC Eastern Division. For the Gamecocks, a win keeps them in national title contention and continues their recent success against Florida. We realize its an extremely important game down there in The Swamp, Spurrier said. Hopefully, our guys will be ready to play their best one of the year. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator. org.Florida, South Carolina enter matchup with similar styles receiver or watching the rush. As a quarterback, you cant do that. The lack of big plays against the Commodores can also be attributed to drops and the Gators taking advantage of the worst rushing defense in the SEC. Flor ida had no reason to throw the ball and risk turnovers if Driskel could keep running wild as Vanderbilt failed to adjust to the read-option. Despite throwing for just 61 yards against LSU, Florida won by rushing for 160 yards in the second half. No one should fault the Gators for sticking to whats working. While getting those rushing yards might not be as easy on Saturday against South Carolidefense in the country, UF will still have opportunities to make plays through the air. The Gamecocks have allowed 20 or more yards on a passing play 20 times this season, tied for 66th in the nation. LSU showed on Saturday that UF wont need a dominant passing attack to defeat South Carolina. The Tigers beat the Gamecocks 23-21 and rushed for 258 yards while throwing for only 148. That ratio is a good target for the Gators. But, if they continue to run this effectively, it shouldnt be a goal. Whether [Driskel] ends up throwing for 300 or rushing for a record like he does, I dont really care how it gets done, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. As long as were productive with what we do and score points. Pease is right not to put too much on Driskel. Asking him to throw for 300 yards in any game would be a stretch. Driskel just needs to make enough plays to keep defenses honest, which he has shown the ability to do. If he can do that, the offense will Contact Josh Jurnovoy @jjurnovoy@alligator.org. JOSH, from page 17Gamecocks dealing with rash of injuries NOTES, from page 17 theyre doing. We can actually play quicker in a game. Better knowledge of the system has also led to improved communication in the secondary. Players have a better understanding of where they have to line up in the for mation, which frees them to make plays. Evans also credited the secondarys improvement to The ability to recognize a pass route as it is developing gives UFs defensive backs extra time to get in position and make a play, Evans said. While the coaches have emphasized turnovers since the beginning of last season, Quinn said the players have started to put more focus on generating takeaways. Although we emphasized it last year, maybe the players to each other are emphasizing it more, Quinn said. When another teammates telling you and reminding you, maybe thats a little different. When it comes from a player or another teammate, I think that adds value. Linebacker Jon Bostic said Floridas opponents also factor in the shift. Teams are attempting 35 passes per game against UF this season, compared to only 26.2 per game last year. Offenses are playing a lot more aggressive than they were last year, Bostic said. They have to put the ball in the air and do a lot of different things to win games. For the second season in a row, UF coaches are emphasizing attacking the ball in the air and going for a strip once carrier wrapped up. In 2012, the results of that show. We practice every day on creating turnovers, Hunter said. Its just carrying over to the game. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. TURNOVERS, from page 17 Emphasis paying offShaw

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 COACHES EXPECTED HARRIS TO HELP UFS FRONTCOURT IN PRACTICE. KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterDamontre Harris knew he would have to sit out the season when he transferred to Florida from South Carolina in May, but he hoped he could at least help the team during practice. This is a great year for me to get real better so I can have an opportunity to show all my talent next year when I have the oppor tunity to play, Harris said on Oct. 10. I just love to compete, so I think Ill be able to help [the team] out a lot. However, Harris will no longer bring depth to Floridas practices. Coach Billy Donovan announced on Wednesday that Harris dislocated his shoulder and suffered a labrum tear when a teammate fell on him during a weekend practice. Harris plans to consult his family and a doctor before deciding whether he should have surgery. If he undergoes surgery, the junior would be out of practice until at least March. If he doesnt have surgery, the likelihood of it popping out again is a pretty high per centage, Donovan said. [Torn labrums], if you do do surgery, are a long, long time to heal. Youre probably talking him being out for four to six months. Harris would have sat out this year regardless because of NCAA transfer rules, but he hoped to contribute in practice. The 6-foot-10 center was an ideal opponent for junior Patric Young because of his size and talent as a shot-blocker. Last season with the Gamecocks, Harris was second in the Southeastern Conference with 71 blocks, averaging 2.3 per game. He trailed only Kentuckys Anthony Davis, who made 186 blocks. As a team, the Gators tallied only 124 blocks last season. Just offensively playing against Patric, it was good for Patric and it was good for [Har loss in my opinion to us in practice because practices. Now with him being gone, I think it hurts his development and it hurts our team a little bit. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator. org.
