KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterWomens rights activist Sandra Fluke made an appearance on Turlington Plaza on Wednesday to encourage students to utilize early voting for next weeks presidential election. Fluke stopped at UF as part of her Its On You Youth Early Vote Campus Outreach tour. About 40 students gathered by the potato statue to listen. Florida is so critical to this election, Fluke said in her speech. She received national attention after a congressional controversy regarding whether insurance should include a contraception mandate. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh then called her a slut on air. On Wednesday, Fluke mentioned that President Barack Obama doubled investment in Pell Grants, gave families with college students a tuition tax credit and fought to keep student loan rates low. Victoria Joyal, a 21-year-old computer engineering senior and Vox: Voices for Planned ParentFluke came to rally students. Ive noticed that a lot of people arent as enthusiastic about voting as they should be, Joyal said. Having a notable person will get people more excited to vote. Following the speech, Fluke walked students to an early voting van, which took students to polling places in Alachua County. Fluke is traveling throughout the state to mobilize young voters, she said. Her next stop is in Wakulla. This is like, razor-thin close, she said, and youth college kids are going to be able to make a difference. Contact Kathryn Varn at kvarn@ alligator.org Cris Cab performs tonight at High Dive.

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012 KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing Writer two articles, which explain the constitutional and local amendments on Tuesdays ballot.Amendment 1 Health Care Ser vices This amendment seeks to prevent the state government from requiring citizens to buy health insurance. Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said the amendment proposal is like a referendum for President Barack Obamas federal health care law. Tony Carvajal, chief of staff at the Collins Center for Public Policy, said that while it wouldnt change anything if passed, it would limit the states ability to pass similar legislation if the Affordable Care Act is repealed. A yes vote supports the idea that Floridians should not be required to purchase health insur ance, he said. Amendment 2 Veterans Property Tax Discount Disabled veterans who werent Florida residents before enlisting could qualify for a property tax discount under this amendment. Macnab said a no vote isnt against veterans but opposes adding it to the states constitution. Carvajal said the proposal is on the ballot because the legislature wants it to be a long-term solution. Amendment 3 State Government Revenue Limitation This amendment seeks to implement a revenue formula considered in 30 states but only adopted in Colorado, Macnab said. The proposal suggests changing how state spending caps are deter mined. It would change the determinants from personal income growth Daniel Smith, a UF political science professor, said he moved to Florida from Colorado when the state adopted the policy. He said it prevented states from providing services like public education. Carvajal said the cap would betion, which means the state wouldnt be able to respond to sudden changes like natural disasters or changes needing college educations. A yes vote here means restricting growth in spending in the state to no more than the growth in the state that year, he said. Amendment 4 Property Tax Limitations; Property Value Decline; Reduction for Nonhomesteaded Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal This amendment aims to spur on the home-buying market. Carvajal said the proposal will He said backers, like the Florida Realtors Association, claim it provides an incentive for citizens to buy new houses through property tax exemptions. Opponents, like the Florida League of Cities, claim the tax breaks will come at the expense of local governments. Carvajal said the amendment focuses on whether voters believe private or public investment is more important. One way to show what should be the proper size of the government is to adjust the amount of money the government has in their hands, Macnab said. Amendment 5 State Courts This proposal would give lawernors state Supreme Court justice choices, view complaints against justices and override court decisions more easily. The biggest change is the Speaker of the House could view complaints against judges and act upon them mission doesnt. The commission is the only body controlling the complaints now. monopoly of power in Tallahassee, but thats not even enough, Smith said of the Republican-controlled legislature. Amendment 6 Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights Fueling a prominent national debate at the state level, Amendment 6 intends to ensure no state tax dollars fund abortions. The amendment proposal would also require parental consent for minors to get abortions. Religious-based groups, like the Catholic Church, are pushing to pass the amendment. Sheila Hopkins, Florida Confer ence of Catholic Bishops associate director for social concerns/respect life, said few exceptions, like incest, rape or danger to the mothers life, are acceptable conditions for abor tion. She said this amendment would be protecting the status quo because no state revenue is used to pay for employees elective abortions. Staci Fox, CEO of Planned Par enthood of North Florida, said a no vote protects the rights of female state workers who would elect for abortions. Fox, also, said a 2004 amendment tion not consent for minors abortions.Guide to constitutional amendments on Tuesdays ballotCarvajal

He described his sound as a fusion of all different kinds of music reggae, soul and hip-hop with some pop. This will be Cabs third to last stop of the tour with stops in Orlando and Tallahassee.

BAKR SALIQAvenue WriterLost in an endlessly growing queue and buried beneath thousands of rows of titles, there are these Chico & Rita (2010) 94 Minutes, NR Animated movies arent only for children. The Javier Mariscal and Fernando Trueba, follows the story of talented Cuban pianist Chico (Eman Xor Oa) and the beautiful singer Rita (Limara Meneses). The two fall in love after an extremely fun and energetic opening scene. As time goes on, they grow apart and must rekindle the joy of their past. Chico & Rita is an animated movie that is likely to be unlike of love, lust, drugs, loneliness and betrayal. The the times of great excitement and joy, the colors pop and dance, which truly feels like watching music. When the story reaches darker places, the morose shades add to the gravity of the scene. Although it is an animated feature, you may not want any children around watching it. However, if the child can appreciate the intimacies and nuances of love lost and love found and enjoys the exploration of the soul of a struggling and lovelorn artist, then maybe that child is mature enough to watch Chico & Rita.

After 20 years in business, Wild Iris Books, 802 W. University Ave., will move and downsize its inventory with a 20 percent-off sale. Calhoun co-owns the store with Erica Merrell. Ive been here for 8 years. Its sad to see this space go, Calhoun said. I think were moving forward, though, in a community that represents not only feminism, but the integration of that in todays culture. The store will remain in its current location until Dec. 22, and the sale will go on until the stores move, Merrell said. We want to honor the space and legacy here, Merrell said. We want to be here through the holidays for the customers, keep our sale going and hopefully end with a celebration. Calhoun said she and Merrell have been looking for new locations and have a verbal agreement with the owner of a smaller storefront. Wild Iris Books will not announce its new location until it establishes a written agreement. The sale covers all merchandise, excluding consignment items and e-readers. There is also a garage sale table, where prices range from a quarter to $3, Merrell said. The merchandise on the table will be updated whenever there is an empty space. In addition to the sale, the owners have reached out to the community to get its opinion about what it would like to see in the new store, Calhoun said. With our customers help, we can re-imagine what a feminist bookstore in 2012 should look like, she said. Calhoun said big plans are in the works for the new store.

The chillwave duos debut EP, Candy Bar Creep Show, is melodic and haunting, romanticized nightmare composed of four addicting tracks. The groups moniker is self-explanatory MS refers to the vocals, and MR refers to the music. Lizzy Plapinger, co-founder of Neon Gold Records, provides the lead vocals stuck in your head. MS MRs respective elements are perfect complements of each other, like yin and yang. Lizzys vocals echo and brighten the chilling, synth-pop instrumentals. Whether the band is preaching the fate of the world, an abandoned soul and body or unseen creatures, its easy to get lost in its sound. The two project something much bigger and more bombastic than their single Hurricane for a perfect example), and as a very important side note, its live performance shakes, rattles and rolls. Whatever images MS MR has stirred or inspired in life on stage. Paloma Faith Forget triple threats, Paloma Faith is a quadruple force to be reckoned with. Faith is the UK-born singer, songwriter, dancer and actress who hit the scene in 2009 with her debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? Shes entirely theatrical and animated from head-to-toe, and her sound is this eclectic, crossover blend of soul and pop. Enjoying her style and performance is like time traveling; shes truly vintage and has the ability to span decades, making her instantly unique from her comparative contemporaries Adele, Emeli Sande and the late Amy Winehouse. In 2011, Faith earned a nomination for Best British Female at the BRIT Awards, and she closed the ceremony by sharing the stage with Cee Lo Green. Its clear shes not only a pulse point for hot up-andcoming singers, but shes a star. One of Palomas newest singles, Picking Up the Pieces, mourns a dead love thats long gone, and half of that love feels slighted.

BOBBY DESMONDAvenue WriterAcross campus, students claim to have the worst roommate imaginable: She drinks my milk, He never washes his dishes, She borrows my clothes without asking, and so on. But no roommate is half as evil as the main character in Dont Trust the B---in Apt 23. Chloe, the untrustworthy roommate, played by Breaking Bad alumna Krysten Ritter, returned to television last week after a long-awaited late season premiere. Her criminal record is impressively original. She once told a roommates parents he was kidnapped, so she could use the ransom money to go to Paris. Her newest roommate June, played by Dreama Walker, is a young and naive Wall Street hopeful fresh out of college. Chloe goes to any means necessary to ruin her roommates life, and each episode features an outrageously hilarious new scheme. The show breaks all preconceived notions that network television is less likely to push the envelope. ABC is even allowing Ritter to pose in Playboy to promote the show.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012 BROCK SENGAvenue Contributing WriterGood mood music. Thats how Nikki Bruno, 21, deband she fell in love with enough to etch a tattoo of on her skin. Mayday Parade plays Sunday at High Dive with opening acts The Postelles and The Maine. Doors open at 6 p.m., and tickets are available for $20 on www.ticketweb. com The band formed in 2005, after Moment and Kid Named Chicago, joined forces. Mayday Parade since released two EPs and three albums. The most recent is self-titled Mayday Parade, released in October 2011. The band is not a stranger to Gainesville. Derek Sanders, lead vocalist, said when it was starting up, the band played in the Swamp all the time. I love Gainesville, he said. I always enjoy going back there. Mayday Parade even has a song, Your Song, that mentions the city. Sanders wouldnt say for cer tain if Your Song is going to be on the setlist for the show, but he did hint at it. Well have to wait and see and leave it as a surprise, he said, laughing. Sanders has been involved with music since he was 11 years old, when his older brother taught him how to play the guitar. He then met Brooks Betts, the guitarist for Mayday Parade, in seventh grade, and they started a band together. Ever since I met Brooks, its been our goal and our focus to be in a band and make it together, Sanders said. He said the inspiration for Mayday Parades songs come mostly from real life experiences and just thinking about things growing up, like relationships with friends and family. Bruno said Mayday Parade helped her through a rough time in her life, when someone close to her began using prescription pills destructively. I turned to Mayday Parade to get me through those times that were so bittersweet, she said. Sanders said its very humbling and very awesome when he hears that his bands music helped people through their lives. Its an unexpected bonus, he said. We love doing this. Its what we have always loved to do. Mayday Parade in 2007, and since then, she has seen them four times, most recently at this years Warped Tour. She said her favorite song by Mayday Parade was Miserable Lesson In Romantics, which she described as her belt-it-out-inthe-car, know-every-single-word song. Sanders said the upcoming show will include a mixture of songs from old to new. He said itll include some staple tour songs, but they have switched up the setlist. Im very excited, he said. Its going to be a good show.Mayday Parade performs songs both old and new Sunday music 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 Mediocre Advice, At ladies night at the club, all my single girls get paired, while my not-so-single self is left alone. I feel bad pulling the I have a boy friend, card, but I dont know how to make it less awkward. Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, What is the difference between f--king and making love? Dear Friend, You can f--k someone you love, and you can make love to someone you f--k. F--king is similar to the dirty feeling it leaves after the word exits your mouth. Its ruthless and fun, but it doesnt mean anything. Making love is passionate and deeply intense, whether its with your long-time boyfriend or stranger. Above all, the chemistry of the two, or however many people involved, is the most important factor. Dear Friend, You dont have to do anything you dont want to do. Be mean and clear, or guys will continue to try to latch onto you. Say one of these three options: a) I do not want to dance with you; b) You creep me out a lot, so please go away; or c) I didnt come here so you can rub your penis all over me. Thats gross. Back off. Make eye contact, and stand your ground. The worst-case scenario is he calls you a b---h, but thats better than being his hump toy for the night. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it true that pretty girls can get any guy they want? Dear Friend, False. Pretty girls may have it easier to get it in with more guys than an average, homely girl, but they cannot get any guy they want. Surprisingly enough, guys have a say in who they want to sleep with, too. The hypothetical pretty girl can slut it up as much as she wants, but if the guy shes hunting down doesnt reciprocate those enough, it wont happen. A pretty girl getting another man in bed and her actually keeping him around are two completely different things. People forget there are qualities, such as intelligence and personality, that are the results of good parenting. Looks can get you as far as a guys bed, but not breakfast the next morning.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Womens basketball player up for awardForward Jennifer George was named one of 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS Award, for excellence in community, classroom, character and competition. Carlie Needles and the Florida basketball team are against Geno Auriemmas proposal to lower the rims. See story, page 16. QuotableHe head-butted somebody, and he didnt have a helmet on. Jon Halapio UF offensive lineman on defensive coordinator Dan Quinn jumping in on drills AP Photo teams 33-10 win against Kentucky on Saturday in Columbia, Mo. JUNIOR JAMES FRANKLIN HAS MISSED TWO GAMES THIS SEASON DUE TO SHOULDER AND KNEE INJURIES. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer The Gators have multiple dual-threat quarterbacks on their schedule this season. Florida has already faced mobile gunslingers Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M and Aaron Murray of Georgia. UF still has a date against Florida States EJ Manuel in Tallahassee on Nov. 24. But none stood taller before the 2012 season began than Missouri signal caller James Franklin until the injuries piled up. Franklin suffered injuries to both shoulders one during spring practice and the other against Georgia on Sept. 8. He also suffered a knee sprain against Vanderbilt on Oct. 6. The junior quarterback missed games against Arizona State on Sept. 15 and Alabama on Oct. 13. Franklin, who has not attempted more than 10 passes in a game since Sept. 29, will start against the Gators on Saturday, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said. Hes not been healthy all year, Pinkel said. Does that affect your team? Theres no question about that. We all know that. Take any starting quarterback out of any program and its going to have a huge impact. Franklins absence has put a damper on the ence. against Kentucky on Oct. 27 after dropping by an average margin of 19.5 points. kel said, especially with Franklin limited. The difference between the Big 12 and the Pinkel said. And I think thats fair to say. I think its hard to argue that. Last season, Franklin threw for 2,865 yards and ranked second in the Big 12 behind Kanquarterback with 981. Franklin averaged 4.5 yards per rush. In 2012, Franklin has run for just 75 yards on 51 carries, relying more on his arm in an effort to avoid further injury. Not including sacks, past three games. Although Pinkel named Franklin the starter for Saturdays game, Florida has been preparing for both Franklin and Missouri backup Their offense doesnt change a lot from one quarterback to another, UF defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org. Missouris dual-threat quarterback getting healthy, will start vs. Florida THE ADAM BOMB E It hurts. The Gators fumbled away a golden opportunity. If Jordan Reed scored, Florida would have had a chance to tie the game and pull out an overtime win. In all likelihood, UF would have been undefeated heading into a matchup with FSU on Nov. 24. Sure, No. 7 Florida could still reach the national title game, but it will need a 2006-like domino effect. Floridas hope for Atlanta hinges on Ole Miss or Auburn beating Georgia. loss, the Gators are left to wonder, What if? Still, all is not lost. of one of the schools most successful seasons ever. Only Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer have won 10 games at UF. Florida faces Missouri this Saturday. The game. They even made shirts celebrating their 3310 win against Kentucky. Florida didnt play its best in a 38-0 shutout of Kentucky. After Missouri, Florida pays for Louisiana and Jacksonville State to suffer through four quarters in The Swamp. Who wouldve guessed this team heads into Tallahassee with a 10-1 record? Only one writer on the alligatorSports staff (me) picked UF to win at least eight games. Florida entered the season ranked No. 23 Unfortunately, the discussion following The Largest Outdoor Turnover Party was centered around I told you so. Nobody thought a team ranked 102nd in total offense could remain a contender for any title. Florida proved it on Saturday. The Gators know they screwed up. UF still has plenty to play for SEE ADAM, PAGE 15 Adam Pincustwitter: @pincus_adam ADAM LICHTENSTEIN Alligator Writer ference tournament schedule on Halloween, and Ole Miss gave the No. 1 seeded Gators a scare. But in the end, UF topped Ole Miss against Missouri on Friday. The Gators had controlled the game since a 12th-minute goal off the foot of Jo Dragotta gave them an early lead. Florida had buckled down on defense, preventing Ole Miss from getting a solid attack going. That lasted until the 81st minute. The Rebels lined up for their third corner kick in two minutes. Forward box, and defender Maddie Friedmann got it past goalkeeper Taylor Burke, tying the game and shocking the Gators. We need to stop giving away too many corner kicks, Dragotta said after the game. Theyve been our Achilles heel all year. With only nine minutes remaining in regulation, Florida pressed the attack forward, taking three shots in the next 8 minutes. Junior Maggie Rodgers had a one-on-one opportunity against In the 89th minute, junior Taylor Travis was fouled outside of the penalty Year Erika Tymrak took the free kick.

PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator WriterFinding consistent offense was problematic for Florida last season, but Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma has an answer for UF and the rest of womens basketball: lower the rims. Averaging 67.5 points per game, the Gators ranked 75th nationally in scoring. They were 101st in shooting percentage, making just 40.3 than Floridas mens team, which scored 75.9 points per game on 46.3 percent shooting. Citing womens college basketballs increasing struggle to attract an audience, Auriemma brainstormed a way to make the sport more enjoyable. His big idea for driving up attendance is to increase scoring by lowering the rims and instituting new timing rules. What makes fans not want to watch womens basketball is that some of the players cant shoot, and they miss layups, and that forces the game to slow down, Auriemma told the Hartford Courant on Oct. 22. Lets say the average mens player is 6-foot-5, and the average woman is 5-foot-11. Lets lower the rim seven inches; lets say 7.2 inches to honor Title IX [established in 1972]. Inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006, Auriemma is one of the sports transcendent leaders. He has won seven national championships and made 13 trips to the Final Four since becoming the coach of UConn in 1985. Despite Auriemmas success in the sport, some Gators players were against his idea for wholesale changes to the game. [Lowering the rim] is just kind of degrading toward the women who play basketball to think that we have to change something like that for our game to be more exciting, redshirt freshman Carlie Needles said. Geno is different. He can say things like that because he is one of the best. Maybe he does have a good reason why; I personally dont agree with it. I dont know who else would. Coach Amanda Butler was careful to stay neutral when discussing the subject. She served on the Womens Basketball Coaches Association Board of Directors, where Auriemma formerly was president. He wants whats best for the game and whats going to continue to grow the game, she said. Certainly not every idea is a good you do something thats a little bit different.

Some players are against UConn coach Geno Auriemmas suggestion that the womens rims be lowered. Gators respond to esteemed coachs idea to lower rims KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterCoach Billy Donovan said he doesnt like to name starters, but he admitted Monday that four of a process of elimination. The one forward. After backing up Erving Walker for two years, Scottie Wilbekin will be the Gators starting point guard. Patric Young and Erik Murphy will start in the frontcourt, and Kenny Boynton will return to his usual role as shooting guard. As for small forward, Casey ing for the starting role. The 6-foot-3 Rosario started in Saturdays scrimmage against Rollins College and is expected to start again in tonights exhibition against Nebraska-Kearney at 7 in the OConnell Center. Donovan said the Gators would have no problem using the 6-foot-6 Prather against bigger opponents. Thats the one spot for us right now where I think we have two guys, Donovan said. Prather will miss the exhibition after suffering a concussion in Saturdays scrimmage, the team announced Wednesday. Rosario got the start against Rollins because of his improved consistency, Donovan said. As far as my trust level for him off the court, I think its growing and growing because he is taking care of his responsibilities, Donovan said. At media day on Oct. 10, Donovan discussed his disappointment in Rosario for his inconsistency. the number of games and practices Rosario missed last season because of mild injuries, even adding that his daughter would have recovered from a hip pointer sooner than the 10 days Rosario needed. Coach was just trying to be funny and trying to put a little smile on my face, but I didnt take it personally at all, Rosario said. I look at it as a motivation, so those comments really pushed me. Although Donovan has been impressed with Rosarios hard work and change in attitude over the past two months, it isnt enough to guar antee him the start at the three spot when the regular season begins. To say that thats the starting lineup for the year, it could be in some games (and) it may not be in other games, Donovan said. To me, guys starting and not starting can be a direct impact of what happens that week.
