MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Contributing WriterThe birds and the bees have their place at UF. UF ranked No.12 on a list of the top 25 schools with the best safesex programs in a study released by The Daily Beast last week. UF ranked No. 8 in 2011. Sperlings Best Places and Trojan Brand Condoms started the list seven years ago and compiled the information through surveys given to 200 college studenthealth centers and administrators, according to The Daily Beast. Sex education programs are evaluated on the convenience, quality and scope of each service, according to the site. Student Health Care Center spokeswoman Catherine A. Seemann said she doesnt know why UF would drop in the rankings, but it could be due to the studys lack of knowledge on the colleges seasonal programs. Sex in the Swamp is a whole week of sex education before Spring Break put on by national professional health education honor society Eta Sigma Gamma, which allows students to interact with one another on sex topics. The SHCC also expanded its sexual health services, Seemann said. The center now offers free STD testing for students on campus with the help of the Alachua County Health Department.

CARS RUN FROM CAMPUS EVERY HALF HOUR UNTIL 7:30 P.M. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterEarly voting started Satur day, which for many students releases the time constraints of having to go to the polls Nov. 6. But it still doesnt solve the issue of how to get there. For those having trouble with transportation, Gators for Obama is providing shuttle ser vices from Turlington Plaza and the Reitz Union Colonnade. Co-chairwoman Rachel McGovern, a 20-year-old political science junior, said cars run about every half hour until 7:30 p.m. each evening. She said students can schedule a ride by but scheduling a ride isnt required. Jenna Goldman, a 19-yearold UF political science sophotage of the service because she wants to avoid the Election Day rush, and the shuttle is the most convenient way to get there early. Its going to be crazy on Tuesday, she said. Im not dont have a car, and its cold outside. While rides from campus can be handy, students arent the only ones in need of assistance getting to the polls, said Duane Gildea, chairman of events and services for the Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee. There are people who are limited in transportation for a number of different reasons, Gildea said. He said other organizations are targeting minority community areas and areas where precincts have been moved farther away from neighborhoods. He said some local funeral homes have even offered their limousines to help drive voters I wouldnt be surprised if I saw someone pulling a cart with people loaded on it to the polls, Gildea said. Its at that level now. Associate political science professor Michael Scicchitano said particular parties or organizations associated with them offering shuttle services shouldnt affect participants decisions once they get inside the voting booth. They have the right to vote, and were just getting them there, he said. Sociology freshman Rocquel Bobson, 18, mirrored that mindset. It really doesnt matter what bus you get in, as long as you vote, she said. Your vote is private. In the end, no one revote for.Groups mobilize voters by rolling them to the pollsSOCIAL MEDIA SARAH BRANDAlligator Contributing WriterThe last thing some students expect to be graded on is what they write in 140 characters or less, but it A Michigan State University study called Twitteracy: Tweeting as a New Literary Practice, found that students who tweet as part of their instruction are more engaged in the course content and have higher grades. Its interesting because Twitter is normally used in a social setting, and now were using it in class, said Paige Verhoeven, 20-year-old English and psychology junior at UF about tweeting for her British Romanticism course. UF social media specialist Bruce Floyd agreed that use of social media in the classroom can be helpful to students. Its also an easy medium for students to use because familiarity is there, he said. Floyd said UFs administration was probably not aware of the studys results, but many courses utilize Twitter as a teaching tool. Verhoevens class is just one example. She said students are reclass. Each tweet should include the hashtag #britlit. Hashtags can be used to compile all the tweets onto a single page, allowing users to view all at once, Floyd said. UF journalism professor Dave Carlson said he believed tweeting is especially important for journalism students. He said through tweeting, students are practicing grabbing the readers attention. Floyd agreed Twitter can help students learn to communicate effectively. said. It forces you to get to the point.Study finds students who tweet through class are more engaged

Last week, we wrote an editorial about the hazards of going online during a presidential debate. Maybe all of the GIFs pose a potential threat to actually understanding whats going on; by focusing on the viral capacity of a debate subject, we then start to ignore or forget what were actually debating. Its like all of us get so swept up into the awesome feeling of making a joke while its still relevant that we dont even care about the actual issues. We could go into all of the issues that got passed over because of their fun catchphrases, but instead wed like to point out another way that social media has failed us. By now youve heard of the Frankenstorm that is Hurricane Sandy plus an Arctic front plus a full moon, all on the week of Halloween.You might have even seen some pretty powerful Only, they circulate almost every time theres a major storm threatening anywhere. There are pretty much 11 really popular ones that are making the rounds this time. Now, dont let your attention drift away when we start talking about things going viral or what memes are or who made the Internet. Whats important to note here is the fact that were all pretty impressionable. Just because something is on Twitter or shows up on your Facebook feed doesnt mean that its true or relevant. For example, David Ortiz tweeted a picture of what looked like the Statue of Liberty being engulfed by some major waves. Erin Andrews also posted it to her page. It seems they both believed it was very, very true. It was a still from the movie The Day After Tomorrow. Andrews seems to be laughing it off, but shes pretty gullible for being a journalist. Even on fun websites like Twitter, never believe anything is true unless it comes from a very valid source. Another image that circulated early this week was a touching photo of soldiers guarding the Tomb of the Unknown. It shows three soldiers braving some rough weather conditions in order to continue their duty to the tomb. The photo was taken during a storm in September, not during Sandy. A meaningful sentiment, but it didnt happen during Sandy. We just want you to be careful. Theres no need to be duped by the Internet unless its truly necessary, and that is basically never. Some of the images you can trust are probably being reported by high-quality news organizations, and they probably dont look Photoshopped. We cant really teach you how to spot a good Photoshop job; its something youre just born with. It has something to do with pixels. Dont let the crazy news stories distract or convince you. Just do an extra step of research if you think something is questionable. And if it feels like youve seen it before, then you probably did.Passing time is the essence of our livesTaylor Swift released her fourth studio album, Red, last week. I remember merely knowing her as the young, curly-haired girl with icy blue eyes upon her debut six years ago. from being that young teenage girl. As a 22-year-old, she matured out of her adolescence and into adulthood. little bit of time. The passing of time is something I am learning to come to terms with. Its hard to believe that moments of what seemed like yesterday actually happened years ago. Time evolves and so do we. Our ideas and ways of life all change. We reminisce on our childhoods as something from not too long ago. We can vividly recount our favorite television shows, movies, songs, clothes, gadgets and toys of the past. At the time, it felt like wed never get out of our youth. Years later, we call those some of the best days and vividly make nostalgic reference to them. In a strange way, life comes full circle, and roles retaking care of a parent or grandparent who once helped take care of us. We frantically remind ourselves that time is passing by too quickly or dragging on too slowly. We question time and what it does to us. The people and places around us change, often for what seems like the worse. Time is a stress that has more power over us than we many of the decisions we make, as well as the actions we take. Those seconds, minutes and hours often limit us. They convince us were not capable of accomplishing what we desire to. They turn into days, weeks, months, years and then fade into memories. It feels like time is extremely limiting and limited. Time isnt necessarily bad, however. It allows moments to pass so we can see the changes we hope for. We notice advances in ourselves and our society. Goals that seemed impossible to reach are attained, and dreams that once felt far-fetched come true. We do things we never could have seen ourselves doing; we see and experience things we never could have imagined. The best thing about time is that you can rely on it and the change it will bring. There is always room for or wish youve always had. Life is full of so many unexpected qualities. Just manage to take you by surprise. We will change. So will our circumstances, priorities and preferences. Take advantage of your time. Dedicate it not only to in the present. Always remember to look toward the future ahead of you. Time doesnt stop here it never does. You may or may not believe in a life after the one you have now, but I encourage you to think about it. Was your time here well-spent? Did you do something that mattered? Did your life mean something? If you cant say yes just now, be encouraged in knowing that you still have time to do something about it.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorAt an off-campus Halloween party with the theme of rappers and rockers, two white students covered their faces and bodies with black makeup and dressed as black rappers. It is critical to understand that this makeup whether or not known or intended by the two students to have this effect evokes blackface, which was used by white actors on Vaudeville and in other settings to represent AfricanAmericans in a highly demeaning manner. I personally believe that demeaning any race is intolerable and completely counter to the welcoming and inclusive environment that UF has created for its broadly diverse campus community. Demeaning any individual on the basis of race is contrary to UFs strong nondiscrimination policy, A number of organizations leaders, including from the Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council, Panhellenic Council and local chapter of the NAACP, voiced their common reaction that this makeup is offensive. UFs vice president for student affairs, Dave Kratzer, immediately and emphatically expressed his disappointment and explained why such actions are counter to the inclusiveness of UF. Even though this action occurred off campus, at a non-UF event, it presents an important opportunity to raise awareness and protect the broad diversity that is part of UFs excellence. J. Bernard Machen, President, University of Florida As I write this column, I still have not decided who I will be voting for in this years presidential election. However, I will demand that whichever candidate is elected president has a more coherent Internet policy than we have had under previous administrations. This isnt to say Obama has done a poor job. In fact, I think the strides he has taken toward keeping the Internet free and supporting transparency in government have actually been fairly positive steps. I think his historic Aug. 29 Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit, in which the president answered questions on the social media site, showed if nothing else that he treats Internet policy as a serious issue, even if the dialogue of the two campaigns hasnt emphasized it enough. The freedom of the Internet is precarious, and we must be vigilant in protecting it. A great deal of focus in the presidential campaign has been on the economy, as is probably necessary; yet, in my opinion, not enough of the dialogue has been about the role the Internet plays in the economy. If its not a huge campaign issue, it probably wont be a huge governing issue. Thats a problem because it has to be. success during the Clinton years came as a direct result of the Internet boom. Some have suggested that we may be on the verge of a second great wave of Inter net development, one that could carry our economy into the next decade or two. With Web 2.0, a more modern update in the way the in the business world and showing viable revenue structures, the Internet is more important to the economy than ever. Since Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft have found their place as some of the biggest companies in the depending on how we shape our Internet policy. These companies have business models that rely on relative freedom on the Internet. Any regulations surrounding these models need to be implemented with great care or, better yet, not put into place at all. Yet, it is the Internet itself the very nature of how we connect to each other in the modern world that is frequently under attack from interest groups in Washington Piracy is a serious problem, and its one I take very seriously, but thats no excuse to push through poorly constructed policy. Our legislators have shown themselves to be woefully inept in terms of understanding how the Internet works and the role that it plays in the economy. The dialogue in this years presidential election so far has done very little to convince me this is going to change in the future. Believe it or not, the Internet is actually more than a series of tubes, no matter what former members of the Senate might say. Its time our representatives start acting like it. Lets start with the most important issue and demand the next president, whoever it may be, come up with a coherent and intelligent policy. Joshua Madden is a columnist for Kansas State Collegian at Kansas State University.Romney, Obama need to focus on Internets roleUWireJoshua MaddenUWire According to some of the best available data, the United States has, since 2004, killed anywhere between 2,500 and 3,300 people in Pakistan using drone strikes. Of those killed, about 500 to 900 are suspected to have been civilians, including 176 children. And now, a just-released report compiled by Stanford University and New York University students reveals how our countrys drone campaign, which has been expanded civilian death in the northwest region of Pakistan. The evidence offered in this new report, along with what ly reform its use of drones in the region, if not completely abolish it. The report exposes that, far from being the surgically precise and effective tool[s] most Americans believe them to be, drones are actually incredibly violent and messy. It points out, While civilian casualties are rarely acevidence that U.S. drone strikes have injured and killed civilians. The U.S. in its Pakistani drone campaign along with parallel campaigns elsewhere has targeted a range of public establishments, from village squares to schools, in the pursuit of eliminating accused terrorists. This wide scope of targeted structures has, understandably, created a sense of fear and helplessness within the communities living under drones. As one villager interviewed in the report explained, Everyone is scared all the time. When were sitting together to have a meeting, were scared there might be a strike. When you can hear the drone circling in the sky, you think it might strike you. Were always scared. The terror experienced by these Pakistani citizens, a ter ror documented through the many interviews and polls within the report, is far from surprising. The Obama administration has also approved the use of signature strikes, drone attacks that target individuals whose identities are unknown, yet who seem to exhibit behavior in line with that of an active militant. Such clearly unjust and destrucaffected Pakistani populations with help foster the very anti-American sentiment that our for eign enemies thrive off of. In the report, an affected mental health professional notes the impact [the drone program] has on personality development, stating that people who have experienced such things, they dont trust people; they have anger, desire for revenge. So now, among all the collateral deaths and destroyed rorism may very well be fueling it. Consider that for a moment. Not only does it turn out our drones terrorize entire Pakistani villages, but they might not even achieve their intended goal of combating terrorism. We simply cannot continue a policy that so indiscriminately and insensitively into question. In fact, because of its bloody record, our drone campaign has now come to embody the very terror it originally sought to vanquish. at funerals, or those attending village meetings, or those whose identities we dont know, or even those who are simply in the area and over the age of 18 these are not the policies of a nation defending its freedom; these are the policies of a nation terrorizing anothers populace. America now has the responsibility to either change or end its drone program. Thats it. If we continue on like this, we are embracing the very ter rorism we claim to despise, and in doing so, are abandoning the very values we claim to defend.

The center also offers a variety of outreach programs. The outreach programs are the key to getting students accurate sex education on campus, said Samantha Evans, a sexual health educator with GatorWell Health Promotion Services. Evans said the Health Hut and the Sex, Lies and Chocolate presentation are just two of the programs that appeal to a diverse group of students. The Health Hut travels around campus, so students can get sex health and other health information on their way to and from class. She said the presentation helps to dispel many sex myths and gets students educated on the consequences of sexual activity. GatorWell also provides condoms, dental dams and lubricant to students at its location inside the Counseling & Wellness Center, she said. Safe-sex education has also reached the residence halls, said Sydney Richardson, a 19-yearold digital arts and sciences sophomore. There were many free condoms and even free womens condoms in my dorms common room, Richardson said. It was kind of weird. She said UFs ranking on the list isnt of the utmost importance. Whether we dropped or not, were still on the list, Richardson said. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffPaul Morella, playing Clarence Darrow, looks at a temporary jury of audience members at the Hippodrome State Theatre on Monday night. ABOUT 150 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE PLAY. ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterAbout a half-dozen second-year law students peered through a crowd of balding and silver-haired heads to get a look at the past and their futures Monday night. Actor Paul Morella played lawyer Clarence Darrow in A Passion for Justice: An Encounter with Clar ence Darrow, the one-man-show he co-wrote with Jack Marshall. ern Legal Counsel. It was a great opportunity for the community to learn more about tive director, Jodi Siegel. Former Florida Gov. Kenneth Buddy MacKay, K COUNTRY DJ Lewis Stokes, law students and practicing lawyers were in the 150person crowd at the $50-a-ticket function. Morella portrayed the turn-ofthe-century lawyer as being initially young and lazy, but throughout the performance, he acted out Darrows triumphant moments of love, mar riage and success as a lawyer. Then he weaved in stories of defeat like when Darrow was accused of bribing jury members to win a case. Morella also showcased Dar rows intelligence. He often used techniques to manipulate the scene in a courtroom, once distracting jurors by inserting wire into a cigar to hold the ash intact. The jurors found themselves more focused on waiting for the ash to fall than listening to opposing arguments. Nell Page, the development director for Southern Legal Counsel, said she thought the play was a good way to get the word out about Theater is a wonderful way to have an audience feel a message, she said. People who leave here take away a feeling. Contact Alex Catalano at acatalano@alligator.org. MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterFor Taylor Nones, getting money to redecorate her apartment started with an iPhone photo of her friends messy room. The 19-year-old telecommunication sophomore submitted the snapshot to The Daily Hundred, an iPhone app based in Gainesville that challenges users to compete in daily photovoting contests for a chance to win $100 and sometimes additional prizes. Nones and her roommates pooled their friends to pull ahead of the competition. They won the contest with about 80 votes. We were able to network, Nones said. The next day, she walked downtown and collected a $100 bill. She used the money to buy curtains for her apartment. Nones is one of about 90 winners since the app launched in August, said company CEO and co-founder Nick Haase, 23. The company has given $12,000 away to date. The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity alumnus from Emory University reached out to Gainesville brothers to help gain hype for The Daily Hundred. Tapping into UFs Greek community allowed his companys social networking to start strong, he said. In the seven weeks since the apps debut, The Daily Hundred app has been downloaded about 4,000 times, Haase said. There hasnt been a day with zero downloads, he said. Haase attributed the rapid growth to encouraging competition between users with the incentive of a tangible prize. How many times have you logged in[to] Facebook to see whos advertising on the side of the page? he asked. Our product is the advertisement. He described users getting in voting wars. Many people use texting, tweeting and facebooking to rally their friends behind their photos. You can have a cool picture, Nones said, but if you want to win, you have to know people that will download that free app for you and vote for you. the cash prizes were funded by private investors. Now, some businesses sponsor contests. Haase and his 16-member about 10 other businesses at the Founders Pad. For The Daily Hundred to land one of its biggest partners, Gator Dominos franchise owner Freddie Wehbe, some guerilla advertising was necessary. I had to wait outside for an hour and a half for him to walk to his car, vice president of promotion development Chris Dugosh said. Wehbe said he partnered with The Daily Hundred beonline.

He said these changes could bring in more airlines, more permanent jobs and more revenue. Yoho was against it, saying that the Environmental Protection Agency would not approve it. He said he has seen many airlines come and go, and he doesnt feel the expansion is in demand. Dodds did not say much about the subject. He said he feels that congressmen shouldnt be focusing on the issue right now.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9Courtesy to the Alligator from Alyssa Berkovitz / Central Florida Future Catching Up With ClintonFormer President Bill Clinton, who was scheduled to appear with President Barack Obama, spoke to a crowd of about 7,600 supporters at the University of Central Florida on Monday. WEaA THER ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterKenrick Watkins usually hands out chips, chicken tenders or miniburgers, but on Monday, the samples were cups of tomato soup. The 20-year-old psychology sophomore said he knew it was going to be cold when he could feel it in the morning. Im usually not cold, he said. But when I woke up and things were frosty, and I was freezing, I knew it was cold. According to the National Weather Service, temperatures were in the mid-60s when he was handing out the free soups in his red apron and long-sleeve shirt. Watkins usually stands beside Fletcher Drive outside the Gator Corner Dining Center to hand out samples and promote business for Chomp It, located at Racquet Club Dining Center, where he works as a ing. He held a tray of about 30 shot-sized he made. The samples people didnt take steamed until cold gusts stole away their warmth. Temperatures were forecasted to drop down to the 30s overnight. For today, there should be clear skies with temperatures peaking in the low 60s. The drop in temperatures is expected to remain until the weekend. About half the people Watkins offered samples to would scoop one up at the opportunity to eat something warm and free. That sounds perfect on a day like today, said 21-year-old business junior Katie Cairnes before she took a sample. When about a half-dozen lukewarm tomato soups remained on his tray, Watkins made way for the hot pot waiting in the kitchen. We usually dont hand out tomato soup, he said. But its cold out. We just wanted to give people a little bit of warmth. Contact Alex Catalano at acatalano@alligator.org.Blustery temperatures inspire warm tomato soup gestures KORRIE FRANCISAlligator Contributing WriterA new tutoring company is using one-on-one instruction to help students with their STEM classes. The about two-week-old tutoring company, integrateU, based in Orlando and Gainesville, is helping students excel by providing intensive, one-on-one academic attention. Saajan Panikar, current Gainesville branch manager, and Josh Kaplan, current CEO and Orlando branch manager, created integrateU in November 2011 with the intention for it to serve a different purpose. It started out primarily as an academic networking site and then evolved into a tutor ing company, said Panikar, a 23-year-old UF alumnus. Noticing that local tutoring companies, namely TutoringZone and Study Edge, didnt offer much study help for science, technology, math and engineering courses, commonly referred to as STEM courses, Panikar and Kaplan decided to create a service that catered primarily to these subjects. According to the companys website, tutoring services are $30 an hour for individuals, $20 an hour per person for groups of two to three people, $15 per person for groups of four to groups of six or more. We felt that they were really underrepresented, Panikar said. Once you got to a certain point, there really were not tutors for these certain types of subjects. Students create an account on the website and then comcluding contact information, employment history, a personal statement and accomplishments. Students book tutoring sessions using the services online reservation system at www.integrateu.com. Contact information is exchanged through the website, and meet up in a public location for the session, Panikar said. Nicholas Bevelock, a 21-year-old microbiology and cell sciences UF senior was recently hired by integrateUs Gainesville branch as tutor for several science subjects including microbiology. In our opinion, its much better than sitting in a lecture hall of about 100 people just listening to someone talk about the subject for an hour, he said. as a more cost-effective option than TutoringZone or Study Edge, Panikar said.Math, science, tech students get new tutoring option MORE THAN 300 STUDENTS ATTENDED THE EVENT. SAMANTHA BLACKAlligator Contributing WriterGator basketball fans hugged their favorite stars, got signed posters and posed for pictures next to their supersized heroes. UFs Gator basketball team hosted Rowdy Fest on Monday at the basketball complex to get students excited for the upcoming season. The event brought in more than 300 students for a tour of the practice facility, food and a meet and greet with players and coaches. Head coach Billy Donovan spoke to students as they huddled around him. Because of all of you and past students, you have created one of the best homecourt environments in all of college basketball, Donovan said. Our building is not the same when you people are not there. A new UF organization, Mens Basketball Rowdies, helped the University Athletic Association at Rowdy Fest this year. The founder of the organization, 24-year-old computer and electrical engineering sixth-year Jake Sillick, said it was a good way to get the word out about the organization. Senior guard Kenny Boynton, 21, said the event is good for the team. It brings more fans out and shows them that were down-toearth guys, Boynton said.Gator basketball players get rowdy ANDREA CARROZAlligator Contributing WriterSam Kennedy doesnt like using portable toilets at venues. year-old animal sciences freshman said. But three UF alumni may have found a solution to her problems with the Dungaroo. with the idea of creating a cheaper, cleaner, odorless and waterless portable toilet. She named it the Dungaroo. Morris is the founder and CEO of Sanitation Creations, which employs the two other Gators. People dont realize how big of an issue sanitation is here, said Sanitation Creations marketing director Matt Chais, a 2010 alumnus. Chais said the portable toilet collects toilet, the bag is closed, and a new bag appears for the next person to use. Each bag will be lined with chemicals to kill bacteria, Chais said. the waste burned and used for electricity. coordinator Joseph Floyd said the companys ideas are good. However, hes concerned chemicals in the bags that collect the waste will kill microbials, which are needed to produce energy from waste. The company is still working out the details and the legal process of the project. Chais said their portable toilets would cost about $215 to transport, install and empty, which is half of what other portable toilets cost to maintain.

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer After leaving the mens basketball team on Friday, Cody Larson faces an uncertain future. Larson could leave the sport altogether, transfer to another university or possibly return to the 10th-ranked Gators, coach Billy Donovan said. Regardless, semester at UF. Donovan said he would welcome Larson back if the 6-foot-9 forward had a change of heart. If theres anybody who knows about changing their mind, its me, said Donovan, referring to of the Orlando Magic. If he legitimately felt like a week or two weeks from now that, I miss this. I made a huge mistake. He could come back to our team. I understand as a young kid right now, theres a lot swirling around in his head. I am not at all pushing him to come back. I didnt give him some motivational speech. The bottom line is if I really tried to persuade point those feelings are going to resurface again. Donovan announced at the teams media day on Oct. 10 that Larson would not play on scholarship in 2012-13 because of his failure to handle responsibilities on and off the court last season. In February 2010, Larson received two years probation after sharing hydrocodone pills with a teammate. Larson and senior Erik Mur phy were arrested in April 2011 on charges of third-degree felony burglary. Donovan said neither incident factored in Larson having his scholarship revoked. According to Donovan, Larson was playing some of his best basketball in September and during But the sophomore said in a UF release that he needed to focus on his personal life and academics. In this point in time, I dont think he loves the game, Donovan said. (He) just doesnt love it, just doesnt enjoy coming in and working. Larson recorded 12 points and 21 rebounds in 143 minutes across 25 contests in 2011-12. His decision to transfer leaves the team thin in the frontcourt. Patric Young, Will Yeguete and Murphy are the only eligible players on the roster taller than 6 feet, 6 inches. I dont think its a bad decision or a wrong decision, Donovan said. Its his decision of what he thinks is best for him. If he did come to me (about returning), I would be OK with that, but I would expect him to confront his team.

CARS RUN FROM CAMPUS EVERY HALF HOUR UNTIL 7:30 P.M. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterEarly voting started Satur day, which for many students releases the time constraints of having to go to the polls Nov. 6. But it still doesnt solve the issue of how to get there. For those having trouble with transportation, Gators for Obama is providing shuttle ser vices from Turlington Plaza and the Reitz Union Colonnade. Co-chairwoman Rachel McGovern, a 20-year-old political science junior, said cars run about every half hour until 7:30 p.m. each evening. She said students can schedule a ride by but scheduling a ride isnt required. Jenna Goldman, a 19-yearold UF political science sophotage of the service because she wants to avoid the Election Day rush, and the shuttle is the most convenient way to get there early. Its going to be crazy on Tuesday, she said. Im not dont have a car, and its cold outside. While rides from campus can be handy, students arent the only ones in need of assistance getting to the polls, said Duane Gildea, chairman of events and services for the Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee. There are people who are limited in transportation for a number of different reasons, Gildea said. He said other organizations are targeting minority community areas and areas where precincts have been moved farther away from neighborhoods. He said some local funeral homes have even offered their limousines to help drive voters I wouldnt be surprised if I saw someone pulling a cart with people loaded on it to the polls, Gildea said. Its at that level now. Associate political science professor Michael Scicchitano said particular parties or organizations associated with them offering shuttle services shouldnt affect participants decisions once they get inside the voting booth. They have the right to vote, and were just getting them there, he said. Sociology freshman Rocquel Bobson, 18, mirrored that mindset. It really doesnt matter what bus you get in, as long as you vote, she said. Your vote is private.

Its interesting because Twitter is normally used in a social setting, and now were using it in class, said Paige Verhoeven, 20-year-old English and psychology junior at UF about tweeting for her British Romanticism course. UF social media specialist Bruce Floyd agreed that use of social media in the classroom can be helpful to students. Its also an easy medium for students to use because familiarity is there, he said. Floyd said UFs administration was probably not aware of the studys results, but many courses utilize Twitter as a teaching tool. Verhoevens class is just one example. She said students are reclass. Each tweet should include the hashtag #britlit. Hashtags can be used to compile all the tweets onto a single page, allowing users to view all at once, Floyd said. UF journalism professor Dave Carlson said he believed tweeting is especially important for journalism students. He said through tweeting, students are practicing grabbing the readers attention. Floyd agreed Twitter can help students learn to communicate effectively. said. It forces you to get to the point.Study finds students who tweet through class are more engaged

Last week, we wrote an editorial about the hazards of going online during a presidential debate. Maybe all of the GIFs pose a potential threat to actually understanding whats going on; by focusing on the viral capacity of a debate subject, we then start to ignore or forget what were actually debating. Its like all of us get so swept up into the awesome feeling of making a joke while its still relevant that we dont even care about the actual issues. We could go into all of the issues that got passed over because of their fun catchphrases, but instead wed like to point out another way that social media has failed us. By now youve heard of the Frankenstorm that is Hurricane Sandy plus an Arctic front plus a full moon, all on the week of Halloween.You might have even seen some pretty powerful Only, they circulate almost every time theres a major storm threatening anywhere. There are pretty much 11 really popular ones that are making the rounds this time. Now, dont let your attention drift away when we start talking about things going viral or what memes are or who made the Internet. Whats important to note here is the fact that were all pretty impressionable. Just because something is on Twitter or shows up on your Facebook feed doesnt mean that its true or relevant. For example, David Ortiz tweeted a picture of what looked like the Statue of Liberty being engulfed by some major waves. Erin Andrews also posted it to her page. It seems they both believed it was very, very true. It was a still from the movie The Day After Tomorrow. Andrews seems to be laughing it off, but shes pretty gullible for being a journalist. Even on fun websites like Twitter, never believe anything is true unless it comes from a very valid source. Another image that circulated early this week was a touching photo of soldiers guarding the Tomb of the Unknown. It shows three soldiers braving some rough weather conditions in order to continue their duty to the tomb. The photo was taken during a storm in September, not during Sandy. A meaningful sentiment, but it didnt happen during Sandy. We just want you to be careful. Theres no need to be duped by the Internet unless its truly necessary, and that is basically never. Some of the images you can trust are probably being reported by high-quality news organizations, and they probably dont look Photoshopped. We cant really teach you how to spot a good Photoshop job; its something youre just born with. It has something to do with pixels. Dont let the crazy news stories distract or convince you. Just do an extra step of research if you think something is questionable. And if it feels like youve seen it before, then you probably did.Passing time is the essence of our livesTaylor Swift released her fourth studio album, Red, last week. I remember merely knowing her as the young, curly-haired girl with icy blue eyes upon her debut six years ago. from being that young teenage girl. As a 22-year-old, she matured out of her adolescence and into adulthood. little bit of time. The passing of time is something I am learning to come to terms with. Its hard to believe that moments of what seemed like yesterday actually happened years ago. Time evolves and so do we. Our ideas and ways of life all change. We reminisce on our childhoods as something from not too long ago. We can vividly recount our favorite television shows, movies, songs, clothes, gadgets and toys of the past. At the time, it felt like wed never get out of our youth. Years later, we call those some of the best days and vividly make nostalgic reference to them. In a strange way, life comes full circle, and roles retaking care of a parent or grandparent who once helped take care of us. We frantically remind ourselves that time is passing by too quickly or dragging on too slowly. We question time and what it does to us. The people and places around us change, often for what seems like the worse. Time is a stress that has more power over us than we many of the decisions we make, as well as the actions we take. Those seconds, minutes and hours often limit us. They convince us were not capable of accomplishing what we desire to. They turn into days, weeks, months, years and then fade into memories. It feels like time is extremely limiting and limited. Time isnt necessarily bad, however. It allows moments to pass so we can see the changes we hope for. We notice advances in ourselves and our society. Goals that seemed impossible to reach are attained, and dreams that once felt far-fetched come true. We do things we never could have seen ourselves doing; we see and experience things we never could have imagined. The best thing about time is that you can rely on it and the change it will bring. There is always room for or wish youve always had. Life is full of so many unexpected qualities. Just manage to take you by surprise. We will change. So will our circumstances, priorities and preferences. Take advantage of your time. Dedicate it not only to in the present. Always remember to look toward the future ahead of you. Time doesnt stop here it never does. You may or may not believe in a life after the one you have now, but I encourage you to think about it. Was your time here well-spent? Did you do something that mattered? Did your life mean something? If you cant say yes just now, be encouraged in knowing that you still have time to do something about it.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorAt an off-campus Halloween party with the theme of rappers and rockers, two white students covered their faces and bodies with black makeup and dressed as black rappers. It is critical to understand that this makeup whether or not known or intended by the two students to have this effect evokes blackface, which was used by white actors on Vaudeville and in other settings to represent AfricanAmericans in a highly demeaning manner. I personally believe that demeaning any race is intolerable and completely counter to the welcoming and inclusive environment that UF has created for its broadly diverse campus community. Demeaning any individual on the basis of race is contrary to UFs strong nondiscrimination policy, A number of organizations leaders, including from the Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council, Panhellenic Council and local chapter of the NAACP, voiced their common reaction that this makeup is offensive. UFs vice president for student affairs, Dave Kratzer, immediately and emphatically expressed his disappointment and explained why such actions are counter to the inclusiveness of UF. Even though this action occurred off campus, at a non-UF event, it presents an important opportunity to raise awareness and protect the broad diversity that is part of UFs excellence. J. Bernard Machen, President, University of Florida As I write this column, I still have not decided who I will be voting for in this years presidential election. However, I will demand that whichever candidate is elected president has a more coherent Internet policy than we have had under previous administrations. This isnt to say Obama has done a poor job. In fact, I think the strides he has taken toward keeping the Internet free and supporting transparency in government have actually been fairly positive steps. I think his historic Aug. 29 Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit, in which the president answered questions on the social media site, showed if nothing else that he treats Internet policy as a serious issue, even if the dialogue of the two campaigns hasnt emphasized it enough. The freedom of the Internet is precarious, and we must be vigilant in protecting it. A great deal of focus in the presidential campaign has been on the economy, as is probably necessary; yet, in my opinion, not enough of the dialogue has been about the role the Internet plays in the economy. If its not a huge campaign issue, it probably wont be a huge governing issue. Thats a problem because it has to be. success during the Clinton years came as a direct result of the Internet boom. Some have suggested that we may be on the verge of a second great wave of Inter net development, one that could carry our economy into the next decade or two. With Web 2.0, a more modern update in the way the in the business world and showing viable revenue structures, the Internet is more important to the economy than ever. Since Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft have found their place as some of the biggest companies in the depending on how we shape our Internet policy. These companies have business models that rely on relative freedom on the Internet. Any regulations surrounding these models need to be implemented with great care or, better yet, not put into place at all. Yet, it is the Internet itself the very nature of how we connect to each other in the modern world that is frequently under attack from interest groups in Washington Piracy is a serious problem, and its one I take very seriously, but thats no excuse to push through poorly constructed policy. Our legislators have shown themselves to be woefully inept in terms of understanding how the Internet works and the role that it plays in the economy. The dialogue in this years presidential election so far has done very little to convince me this is going to change in the future. Believe it or not, the Internet is actually more than a series of tubes, no matter what former members of the Senate might say. Its time our representatives start acting like it. Lets start with the most important issue and demand the next president, whoever it may be, come up with a coherent and intelligent policy. Joshua Madden is a columnist for Kansas State Collegian at Kansas State University.Romney, Obama need to focus on Internets roleUWireJoshua MaddenUWire According to some of the best available data, the United States has, since 2004, killed anywhere between 2,500 and 3,300 people in Pakistan using drone strikes. Of those killed, about 500 to 900 are suspected to have been civilians, including 176 children. And now, a just-released report compiled by Stanford University and New York University students reveals how our countrys drone campaign, which has been expanded civilian death in the northwest region of Pakistan. The evidence offered in this new report, along with what ly reform its use of drones in the region, if not completely abolish it. The report exposes that, far from being the surgically precise and effective tool[s] most Americans believe them to be, drones are actually incredibly violent and messy. It points out, While civilian casualties are rarely acevidence that U.S. drone strikes have injured and killed civilians. The U.S. in its Pakistani drone campaign along with parallel campaigns elsewhere has targeted a range of public establishments, from village squares to schools, in the pursuit of eliminating accused terrorists. This wide scope of targeted structures has, understandably, created a sense of fear and helplessness within the communities living under drones. As one villager interviewed in the report explained, Everyone is scared all the time. When were sitting together to have a meeting, were scared there might be a strike. When you can hear the drone circling in the sky, you think it might strike you. Were always scared. The terror experienced by these Pakistani citizens, a ter ror documented through the many interviews and polls within the report, is far from surprising. The Obama administration has also approved the use of signature strikes, drone attacks that target individuals whose identities are unknown, yet who seem to exhibit behavior in line with that of an active militant. Such clearly unjust and destrucaffected Pakistani populations with help foster the very anti-American sentiment that our for eign enemies thrive off of. In the report, an affected mental health professional notes the impact [the drone program] has on personality development, stating that people who have experienced such things, they dont trust people; they have anger, desire for revenge. So now, among all the collateral deaths and destroyed rorism may very well be fueling it. Consider that for a moment. Not only does it turn out our drones terrorize entire Pakistani villages, but they might not even achieve their intended goal of combating terrorism. We simply cannot continue a policy that so indiscriminately and insensitively into question. In fact, because of its bloody record, our drone campaign has now come to embody the very terror it originally sought to vanquish. at funerals, or those attending village meetings, or those whose identities we dont know, or even those who are simply in the area and over the age of 18 these are not the policies of a nation defending its freedom; these are the policies of a nation terrorizing anothers populace. America now has the responsibility to either change or end its drone program. Thats it. If we continue on like this, we are embracing the very ter rorism we claim to despise, and in doing so, are abandoning the very values we claim to defend.

The center also offers a variety of outreach programs. The outreach programs are the key to getting students accurate sex education on campus, said Samantha Evans, a sexual health educator with GatorWell Health Promotion Services. Evans said the Health Hut and the Sex, Lies and Chocolate presentation are just two of the programs that appeal to a diverse group of students. The Health Hut travels around campus, so students can get sex health and other health information on their way to and from class. She said the presentation helps to dispel many sex myths and gets students educated on the consequences of sexual activity. GatorWell also provides condoms, dental dams and lubricant to students at its location inside the Counseling & Wellness Center, she said. Safe-sex education has also reached the residence halls, said Sydney Richardson, a 19-yearold digital arts and sciences sophomore. There were many free condoms and even free womens condoms in my dorms common room, Richardson said. It was kind of weird. She said UFs ranking on the list isnt of the utmost impor tance. Whether we dropped or not, were still on the list, Richardson said. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffPaul Morella, playing Clarence Darrow, looks at a temporary jury of audience members at the Hippodrome State Theatre on Monday night. ABOUT 150 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE PLAY. ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterAbout a half-dozen second-year law students peered through a crowd of balding and silver-haired heads to get a look at the past and their futures Monday night. Actor Paul Morella played lawyer Clarence Darrow in A Passion for Justice: An Encounter with Clar ence Darrow, the one-man-show he co-wrote with Jack Marshall. ern Legal Counsel. It was a great opportunity for the community to learn more about tive director, Jodi Siegel. Former Florida Gov. Kenneth Buddy MacKay, K COUNTRY DJ Lewis Stokes, law students and practicing lawyers were in the 150person crowd at the $50-a-ticket function. Morella portrayed the turn-ofthe-century lawyer as being initially young and lazy, but throughout the performance, he acted out Darrows triumphant moments of love, mar riage and success as a lawyer. Then he weaved in stories of defeat like when Darrow was accused of bribing jury members to win a case. Morella also showcased Dar rows intelligence. He often used techniques to manipulate the scene in a courtroom, once distracting jurors by inserting wire into a cigar to hold the ash intact. The jurors found themselves more focused on waiting for the ash to fall than listening to opposing arguments. Nell Page, the development director for Southern Legal Counsel, said she thought the play was a good way to get the word out about Theater is a wonderful way to have an audience feel a message, she said.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterFor Taylor Nones, getting money to redecorate her apartment started with an iPhone photo of her friends messy room. The 19-year-old telecommunication sophomore submitted the snapshot to The Daily Hundred, an iPhone app based in Gainesville that challenges users to compete in daily photovoting contests for a chance to win $100 and sometimes additional prizes. Nones and her roommates pooled their friends to pull ahead of the competition. They won the contest with about 80 votes. We were able to network, Nones said. The next day, she walked downtown and collected a $100 bill. She used the money to buy curtains for her apartment. Nones is one of about 90 winners since the app launched in August, said company CEO and co-founder Nick Haase, 23. The company has given $12,000 away to date. The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity alumnus from Emory University reached out to Gainesville brothers to help gain hype for The Daily Hundred. Tapping into UFs Greek community allowed his companys social networking to start strong, he said. In the seven weeks since the apps debut, The Daily Hundred app has been downloaded about 4,000 times, Haase said. There hasnt been a day with zero downloads, he said. Haase attributed the rapid growth to encouraging competition between users with the incentive of a tangible prize. How many times have you logged in[to] Facebook to see whos advertising on the side of the page? he asked. Our product is the advertisement. He described users getting in voting wars. Many people use texting, tweeting and facebooking to rally their friends behind their photos. You can have a cool picture, Nones said, but if you want to win, you have to know people that will download that free app for you and vote for you. the cash prizes were funded by private investors. Now, some businesses sponsor contests. Haase and his 16-member about 10 other businesses at the Founders Pad.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9Courtesy to the Alligator from Alyssa Berkovitz / Central Florida Future Catching Up With ClintonFormer President Bill Clinton, who was scheduled to appear with President Barack Obama, spoke to a crowd of about 7,600 supporters at the University of Central Florida on Monday. WEA THER ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterKenrick Watkins usually hands out chips, chicken tenders or miniburgers, but on Monday, the samples were cups of tomato soup. The 20-year-old psychology sophomore said he knew it was going to be cold when he could feel it in the morning. Im usually not cold, he said. But when I woke up and things were frosty, and I was freezing, I knew it was cold. According to the National Weather Service, temperatures were in the mid-60s when he was handing out the free soups in his red apron and long-sleeve shirt. Watkins usually stands beside Fletcher Drive outside the Gator Corner Dining Center to hand out samples and promote business for Chomp It, located at Racquet Club Dining Center, where he works as a ing. He held a tray of about 30 shot-sized he made. The samples people didnt take steamed until cold gusts stole away their warmth. Temperatures were forecasted to drop down to the 30s overnight. For today, there should be clear skies with temperatures peaking in the low 60s. The drop in temperatures is expected to remain until the weekend. About half the people Watkins offered samples to would scoop one up at the opportunity to eat something warm and free. That sounds perfect on a day like today, said 21-year-old business junior Katie Cairnes before she took a sample. When about a half-dozen lukewarm tomato soups remained on his tray, Watkins made way for the hot pot waiting in the kitchen. We usually dont hand out tomato soup, he said. But its cold out. We just wanted to give people a little bit of warmth. Contact Alex Catalano at acatalano@alligator.org.Blustery temperatures inspire warm tomato soup gestures KORRIE FRANCISAlligator Contributing WriterA new tutoring company is using one-on-one instruction to help students with their STEM classes. The about two-week-old tutoring company, integrateU, based in Orlando and Gainesville, is helping students excel by providing intensive, one-on-one academic attention. Saajan Panikar, current Gainesville branch manager, and Josh Kaplan, current CEO and Orlando branch manager, created integrateU in November 2011 with the intention for it to serve a different purpose. It started out primarily as an academic networking site and then evolved into a tutor ing company, said Panikar, a 23-year-old UF alumnus. Noticing that local tutoring companies, namely TutoringZone and Study Edge, didnt offer much study help for science, technology, math and engineering courses, commonly referred to as STEM courses, Panikar and Kaplan decided to create a service that catered primarily to these subjects. According to the companys website, tutoring services are $30 an hour for individuals, $20 an hour per person for groups of two to three people, $15 per person for groups of four to groups of six or more. We felt that they were really underrepresented, Panikar said. Once you got to a certain point, there really were not tutors for these certain types of subjects. Students create an account on the website and then comcluding contact information, employment history, a personal statement and accomplishments. Students book tutoring sessions using the services online reservation system at www.integrateu.com. Contact information is exchanged through the website, and meet up in a public location for the session, Panikar said. Nicholas Bevelock, a 21-year-old microbiology and cell sciences UF senior was recently hired by integrateUs Gainesville branch as tutor for several science subjects including microbiology. In our opinion, its much better than sitting in a lecture hall of about 100 people just listening to someone talk about the subject for an hour, he said. as a more cost-effective option than TutoringZone or Study Edge, Panikar said.Math, science, tech students get new tutoring option MORE THAN 300 STUDENTS ATTENDED THE EVENT. SAMANTHA BLACKAlligator Contributing WriterGator basketball fans hugged their favorite stars, got signed posters and posed for pictures next to their supersized heroes. UFs Gator basketball team hosted Rowdy Fest on Monday at the basketball complex to get students excited for the upcoming season. The event brought in more than 300 students for a tour of the practice facility, food and a meet and greet with players and coaches. Head coach Billy Donovan spoke to students as they huddled around him. Because of all of you and past students, you have created one of the best homecourt environments in all of college basketball, Donovan said. Our building is not the same when you people are not there. A new UF organization, Mens Basketball Rowdies, helped the University Athletic Association at Rowdy Fest this year. The founder of the organization, 24-year-old computer and electrical engineering sixth-year Jake Sillick, said it was a good way to get the word out about the organization. Senior guard Kenny Boynton, 21, said the event is good for the team.

However, hes concerned chemicals in the bags that collect the waste will kill microbials, which are needed to produce energy from waste.

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer After leaving the mens basketball team on Friday, Cody Larson faces an uncertain future. Larson could leave the sport altogether, transfer to another university or possibly return to the 10th-ranked Gators, coach Billy Donovan said. Regardless, semester at UF. Donovan said he would welcome Larson back if the 6-foot-9 forward had a change of heart. If theres anybody who knows about changing their mind, its me, said Donovan, referring to of the Orlando Magic. If he legitimately felt like a week or two weeks from now that, I miss this. I made a huge mistake. He could come back to our team. I understand as a young kid right now, theres a lot swirling around in his head. I am not at all pushing him to come back. I didnt give him some motivational speech. The bottom line is if I really tried to persuade point those feelings are going to resurface again. Donovan announced at the teams media day on Oct. 10 that Larson would not play on scholarship in 2012-13 because of his failure to handle responsibilities on and off the court last season. In February 2010, Larson received two years probation after sharing hydrocodone pills with a teammate. Larson and senior Erik Mur phy were arrested in April 2011 on charges of third-degree felony burglary. Donovan said neither incident factored in Larson having his scholarship revoked. According to Donovan, Larson was playing some of his best basketball in September and during But the sophomore said in a UF release that he needed to focus on his personal life and academics. In this point in time, I dont think he loves the game, Donovan said. (He) just doesnt love it, just doesnt enjoy coming in and working. Larson recorded 12 points and 21 rebounds in 143 minutes across 25 contests in 2011-12. His decision to transfer leaves the team thin in the frontcourt. Patric Young, Will Yeguete and Murphy are the only eligible players on the roster taller than 6 feet, 6 inches. I dont think its a bad decision or a wrong decision, Donovan said. Its his decision of what he thinks is best for him. If he did come to me (about returning), I would be OK with that, but I would expect him to confront his team.

Burleigh, the only coach in Florida soccers history, was named Southeastern Conon Monday. Burleigh credited the rest of the staff for helping the team earn the top seed in the SEC Tournament. dont think it happens, she said. Its obviously a team honor. Burleigh wasnt the only Gator who brought home hardware on Monday. Holly King each won individual awards. Tymrak was named SEC Offensive Player of the Year, and King won SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Both were named to the AllJo Dragotta. Tymrak leads the Gators in points and assists while ranking second on the team in goals. Tymrak won the award despite not or goals. She ranks fourth in assists, eighth in points per game and second in assists per game. team for the third straight season. I cant believe this, she said. King was recognized for her play at defensive vided solid tackling and dominated when the ball was in the air. Dragotta called her a beast in the air on Sept. 25. King also added four goals this season, three of which came off headers. Ive come a long way from not playing to this, King said. Dragotta made a name for herself this years at Florida, she scored six times in nine games and is tied for the team lead in goals. She started to have a breakout year last year, but I think she really took it to a new level this year, Burleigh said. Defender Christen Westphal rounded out the list of Gators honored Monday. The freshman was named to the All-SEC second team and to the All-Freshman team. She has started all but one game and has been a rock on a back line that has suffered several injuries.
