MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterTwo UF students have been targeted by phone scammers claiming to be holding their family members hostage in the past month, according to a University Police public bulletin. The caller claimed that if the student sent money, then the family member would be released unharmed, UPD Sgt. Kristy Maculan said. One student received a call that her father was being held hostage. She said she hadnt spoken to her father in years, Maculan said. So they eventually hung up. Maculan said these incidents were ing reported to UPD, but this type of scam has been common for years across the world. She said she was unsure how the callers had gotten the students phone numbers. Anyone who receives a similar call should report it to UPD. Remain calm. Dont send any money. Dont provide any personal information, Maculan said. If you have any way to contact that family member, then do that. According to the bulletin, people interested in more information about telephone and Internet scams can visit the Federal Trade Commission at www.FTC.gov, the Federal Bureau of Investigation at www.FBI.gov or the National White Collar Crime Center at www.NW3C.org. Scams can be reported through www.FTC.gov or to the Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.IC3.gov. Contact Michael Scott Davidson at mdavidson@alligator.org.

ANDREA CARROZAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents are helping Hurricane Sandy victims get back on their feet. Throughout the city, organizations are sending out volunteers and collecting donations to help people whose homes were destroyed in the past week by the hurricane. St. Augustine Catholic Church and Holy Faith Catholic Church held a special collection during their services Saturday and Sunday. The University Lutheran Church is also collecting money to help victims. The bishop of the Diocese of St. Augustine, located in Jacksonville, also asked more than 60 parishes that are spread out in 17 counties in North Florida to hold a special collection during all masses on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18, said Christina Retzer, editorial assistant for the director of communications at the Diocese of St. Augustine. The money raised will be sent to Catholic Charities USA, a private network of social service organizations. It will distribute the money to those in need in Northern states. The American Red Cross in Alachua County is recruiting volunteers to help at shelters and other locations. Eleven volunteers from around Central Florida have traveled to help so far. A local volunteer said everything was going good, but were going to move to open another 500-people shelter, said Casey Schmelz, emergency services manager for the organization. The American Red Cross has provided about 92,000 shelters since evacuation began, Schmelz said. As of Sunday, the American Red Cross collected $30 million nationally. It empowers them to get back to normal, she said.City organizations send volunteers, money to storm victims MICHELLE PLITNIKASAlligator Contributing WriterWhen students reach for a can of Red Bull to keep them awake through an all-night study session, they may be getting more caffeine than they expect. A recent Consumer Reports study found that energy drinks such as Red Bull and Monster do not always accurately report how much caffeine they contain, if they report it at all. According to the report, 11 of the 27 top-selling energy drinks in the U.S. do not specify the amount of caffeine they contain. contained more caffeine than listed on their labels. On average, the actual amount was 20 percent more caffeine than listed. Janis Mena, coordinator of nutrition services at UFs Student Health Care Center, said a study on caffeine content in coffee done at UF found caffeine varies from cup to cup by as much as 200 or 300 milligrams. When it comes to energy drinks, however, Mena said, I think there should be truth in labeling. Mena said caffeine, which is a stimulant, cause dizziness and can increase heart rate and blood pressure. Aly Perez, a 21-year-old advertising senior, said she does not look at labels. She also said she doesnt really care how much caffeine is in her favorite energy drink, the low-carb Monster in the blue can. Consumer Reports study echoes Perezs view; it said Monster reported it does not include actual caffeine content on the label because numbers are not meaningful to most consumers. Elaine Turner, senior associate dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, wrote in an email that caffeine content is not required by law to be listed on food labels. Because caffeine is only present in a small percentage of foods and beverages available to consumers, she said, requiring companies to include caffeine content on labels doesnt make sense. Mena said the best way to cient amount of sleep and food. Drinking a reasonable amount of ing sleep and food with caffeine doesnt work. If you need energy in the morning, eat breakfast, she said. Its probably much better for sustainable energy than a stimulant such as caffeine would be. in popular energy drinks AUDREYANNA LOGUERREAlligator Contributing WriterBedbugs often sleep in others beds, but they dont want to cuddle. The blood-sucking insects can thrive with less access to feeding, according to a new UF study published online by the Medical and Veterinary Entomology. The study measured the number of bedbugs that would be necessary to remove 5 percent of a persons blood. The bugs will produce more eggs if there is more food, said Roberto Pereira, associate research scientist at the Department of Entomology and Nematology. Weak organisms are prone to diseases, he said. The body is weak because a lot of blood is taken out. About 24,000 bedbugs feeding on a 154-pound adult and 3,400 bedbugs feeding on a 22-pound baby can cause harm, according to the study. The study showed the dark-brown insects were full after 10 minutes of feeding. Pereira said most peoples beds are usually infested with bedbugs by sleeping in infested hotel rooms. UFs dorms have mostly been bedbug-free. Wayne Walker, the senior pest control technician for the University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education, said he has received about three or four complaints since the beginning of the semester about possible bedbugs, but there hasnt been a case of bedbugs in the residence halls for more than a year. Weve been real fortunate, he said. He said he doesnt think the bedbug problem will go away, but its something he and his staff will have to be vigilant about. We need to continue to educate the residents and make sure we inspect the rooms very thoroughly, Walker said. If you need energy in the morning, eat breakfast. Its probably much better for sustainable energy than a stimulant such as caffeine would be.Janis Menacoordinator of nutrition services at UFs Student Health Care CenterResidents can donate online, tooPereira CRIME CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA Gainesville mans request for a dollar from a stranger turned into an attempted robbery that landed him behind bars Monday morning. Gainesville Police arrested Jason Hardy, 27, of 2911 NE 15th St., on a felony attempted robbery charge, according to a GPD arrest report. At about 12:45 a.m. Monday, Hardy walked up to a man in the 200 block of West University Avenue and asked him for money. The man ignored Hardy and walked away. Hardy told the man he would rob him of everything that he had and that he had a pistol in his pocket, according to the report. The man ran into a nearby bar to call police. Hardy followed and once inside, said to the man, If you come outside I will mess you up. A bartender ordered Hardy out of the bar. Hardy then rode away on his bicycle before police arrived. At 2:06 a.m, police located and arrested Hardy in the 400 block of West University Avenue. After his arrest, Hardy told man for a light and got heated when the man ignored him, according to the report. Police booked Hardy into Alachua County Jail at 2:22 a.m., where he remained Monday night with a $50,000 bond. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.Hardy

Lumosity data scientist Daniel Sternberg said the study was unlike others because its results were based on cognitive performance. Rankings by other companies are often based on students SAT and ACT scores, and surveys, he said. and problem solving. As users progress through college, we can look at tracking and how performance changes as a function of being at that university for four years, he said. Website users were asked to play brain-training games, Sternberg said. The individual game scores were then combined to create an average for the institution. Orlando said the study method was interesting even though rankings do not necessarily depict how smart students truly are. [Employers] like our students because theyre well-rounded, he said. We have a lot of other indicators that show our students are wellprepared when they graduate. Meghan Bradley, a 21-year-old the ranking because UF offers a variety of opportunities to its students.

Mondays question: Did you vote early?64% YES 36% NOGet Out The VoteThen just get outWhy in the world are we allowed to vote for president? Take a look around you. Do you really want that guy to have a hand in deciding your future? BuzzFeed published a post on Monday titled: People Who Wont Be Making A Difference On Tuesday. Author Katie Notopoulos took screen captures of pretty typical and average Twitter users who asked what they thought were important questions about Election Day. Some key tweets: How do you know if your register to vote? i wana vote next weeekend just dont know how to register :/ #wahh @ladygaga Its too late for me to register to vote, Im so Dumb, I forgot :/ We have no idea what excuse people had that allowed them to forget to register to vote. Yes, we live in a college town. Yes, we live in a battleground/ swing/targeted state, which means we are around politics possibly more than some of the other people in this country. But presidential elections are every four years. This is a routine thing. This was not a surprise that snuck up on everybody. The people on that list will not be voting in this election cycle; thats pretty safe to say. Thousands more will, though. And you should want to be one of them. Were a generation who thrives on sharing all of our most personal news quickly. We take deep photographs of our coffee. We complain about our emotions and then complain when people offer to help. We share campaigns to take down evil, foreign regimes without ever leaving the comfort of our couches. Someone decided a long time ago that we have a voice in our politics. We are an awkward and anxious generation, but somehow we have power and authority every once in a while. Its time to use it. This isnt a call to arms. This isnt a broadcast to the desolate-youth types of the world who think their voice isnt heard. Because this is America, and for some reason we still have an Electoral College, our direct voice gets diluted through a couple bureaucracies before its actually heard. But its still our America. Its our bureaucracies. Were in charge of how our country affects us and every other country. Its kind of like the Gilmore Girls theme song. Where you lead, I will follow. Foreign policy is like Gilmore Girls: fast-paced, confusing and full of references that you dont understand. Our country affects everyone around us, but sometimes we forget that. Make the responsible choice when you vote today (if you havent voted already). Choose the local and national candidates who not only have your best interests at heart but who will also act responsibly on our behalf as a country as a whole. Find some joy in your civic duty, but please take it seriously. There will always be fools on Twitter who rant about how dumb they are. Lets be better than them. Youre already ahead of the game. Not that Florida is a model citizen for anything, but we have the blessing/curse of being a sought-after state. We get to hear a lot of different sides from all of the candidates.Celebrate your right: Its Election Day! You registered. You stood in line. You took part in one of the most important occasions our nation will ever practice. Congratulations! I want to dedicate this column to you, voter. Be ensured you made a difference. If you feel like your vote doesnt really count, be assured that it certainly matters and so do you. To those of you who may be reading this before casting a ballot, be encouraged! Please dont give up or get out of line. Patience is a virtue, and its remarkable that you came out wanting to make your voice heard. Remember, good things come to those who wait. Maybe consider voting early the next time around. so I hope the experience was both rewarding and memorable it only happens once. Cherish the moment, and make it a memory youll want to tell your children about. It certainly was for me! It just so happened I got the chance to snap a photo with singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles right before I cast my ballot downtown. I know many of you feel a little overwhelmed by what youve seen leading up to this day. Advocates of voter registration were in your face, the advertisements have been in your face and some aspect of the election has been everywhere you were whether it was in conversation, on your television, on a social media feed, on peoples clothes or on the bumper of the car in front of you. Find courage in knowing it was and really is all for the best. I encourage you to tune in to the networks that will be broadcasting the results tonight. You wont realize until later how rewarding of an experience it is to watch history happen. This is a big deal, people! Whatever the result of this future of our nation. Have fun with it. See if you can correctly predict which candidate will win each state. Have snacks and watch with your friends and loved ones. Most importantly, be informed. Continue to voice your thoughts as well. I have loved seeing my Facebook and Twitter campaigns as a whole. OK, I havent loved everything thats been said, but what I do love is the fact that people, young people especially, are paying attention and believe their opinions have value because they do. Although you may not have the same political beliefs you think about it, the difference in opinions should remind you of the freedom of speech and right to free choice we all possess. Sometimes I wish we could observe Election Day the same way we observe many other holidays. Id be ecstatic getting a day off work or school to go vote, be happy about it and watch the results unfold. Maybe the extra time could make the process of voting on Election Day much easier. Then again, maybe less people would vote early and the polls would be overcrowded that Tuesday. Who knows? What I am saying is I wish Election Day was something people looked forward to and commemorated, an occasion they would enjoy rather than dread. Celebrate today! This is your country. When its all said amendments are passed, it is we the people who together make this nation what it is. Anayo Ordu is an advertising sophomore at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterFor James Paulk, the Thanksgiving season is a reminder of growing up in a one-parent home. He said he knew his mom ten oblivious to as a child. As well as lots of love, we always had lots of food in that cabinet, he said. As Paulk stood inside the Alachua County Fairgrounds Exhibition Building surrounded by tables piled three cans high with donated food, he said volunteer ing at the Strike Out Hunger Food Drive was his way to give back. The operation that began Monday will collect food until 7 p.m. today. Volunteers will distribute to area food banks Wednesday and will be distributing Thanksgiving food baskets to Gainesville families Thursday. John Barli, volunteer coordinator for Catholic Charities, said the fairgrounds saw a variety of doloaded with donations from docments. Its been a big mix of everybody, he said. Barli, who had been unpacking cardboard boxes of canned vegetables, said this years goal is to put together 1,000 food baskets to give away to families. He said food supplies will also go to restock local food pantries. Its kind of just spreading the wealth, he said. Rodney Long, the former Alachua County commissioner who began the food drive in 2008, said he expects people to rely on the drive heavily this year because more families have been affected by a declining economy. The need this year is greater than it was last year because the circumstances are worse, Long said. He said businesses, churches and organizations across Gainesville have teamed up to provide donations with about 60 to 75 volunteers. Long said the goal of the food drive is to strengthen families in the Gainesville community. When you actually provide a meal to a family, it provides a sense of dignity and hope, he said. Thats what this is all about. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 Odori Hines, a 31-year-old UF alumnus, sorts food collected Monday during the Strike Out Hunger Food Drive at the Alachua County Fairgrounds. Its actually a lot of fun, he said. AMELIA BUTLERAlligator Contributing WriterGatorCloud is about to drench UFs campus with data. At the UF Research Computing Day last week at the McKnight Brain Institute, UF announced the start of production on a more modern cyberinfrastructure that uses BIGDATA, or a collection of large and complex data sets, and GatorCloud, a computing system that will store data and maintain software so that users of any device can store and retrieve information without having to download a new operating system. Director of UF High Per formance Computing Center Erik Deumens spoke about the campus network changes at the event. Deumens said BIGDATA and GatorCloud could make UF one of the top 10 research universities. UFs infrastructure helps the university compete for more grants, he said, adding that UF can attract the best researchers with BIGDATA. BIGDATA and Gator Cloud will be introduced on a stronger form of Internet, known as Internet2. Internet2 working group that includes more than 200 American universities, as well as corporations, government agencies and laboratories, according to its website. BIGDATA makes it easier amounts of memory space. GatorCloud is a data-stor ing cyberinfrastructure that will reduce the need for software, Deumens said. You used to have to print out a long research document and FedEx it to the research lab across the country, he told the crowd. Now we have the cyberinfrastructure long distances quickly. Emma Malloy, 20, a health science junior, said she thinks GatorCloud will be helpful to researchers. GatorCloud will help our future, she said. It will make research more accessible. Vice President and Chief Informaof UF Elias Eldayrie told the audience a 10,000-square-foot data center will open in February 2013. UF was awarded a Major Research Instrumentation Program grant for the creation of GatorCloud, Eldayrie said. Andy Li, an associate professor for the UF Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is working on GatorCloud. He spoke about its innovative infrastructure at the event. Memory is practically unlimited on the cloud, Li said. He said full cloud capabilities will be available in Summer 2013.System helps with memory problems for UF researchersaFood drive makes baskets of hope

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffThe Calm Before the Storm SUJIE WUAlligator Contributing WriterUF students have the chance to meet, help and often befriend international students without ever leaving Gainesville. About 200 students from all over the world come to UF each semester, according to the UF Language Learning Center website. Students who sign up for conversation partners are matched with English-speaking volunteers. Together, they participate in the English Language Institutes Conversation Partner Program. The partners meet up for about an hour a week, or they can make up their own schedules. They spend at least half the time speaking in English. Its really up to the students how much they want to get exposure to English outside of the classroom, said Amy Bradley, a 22-yearold language assistant at ELI and linguistics graduate student. Students of any major can volunteer, she said. Most of the international students have never been outside of their own countries before, so it can be hard for them to adjust to the new environment and language. Carolina Diaz, an adjunct lecturer at the institute, said some international students tend to congregate with people from their own countries with the same language. They dont progress as fast as students who get out there every day, and they make friends who speak English, Bradley said. Nataliya Ostarova, 21, who came to UF from Russia about two months ago, said it was sometimes hard for her to ask people to repeat their sentences when she didnt understand what they said. But her conversation partner makes her feel comfortable to ask any question, she said. Being exposed to different cultures is also valuable for the volunteers, Diaz said. Whats underplayed sometimes is the this partnership, she said. Ryan Smitz, a 21-year-old conversation volunteer and Spanish and linguistics junior, said he had a Brazilian conversation partner last semester named Rodrigo Ramalho Diniz. Even though Diniz went back to Brazil, the two still maintain their friendship. I know what it is [like] to struggle through that process and to make all those mistakes, he said. But I also know how helpful it can be to have somebody there who is completely nonjudgmental and relatable. Smitz said he tries not to use fancy words for people who just started learning English. I try to be that one person who they dont have to worry about making mistakes from, he said.International students speak up with language volunteers

UF-Jacksonville State broadcast informationUFs game against Jacksonville State on Nov. 17 will kick off at 1 p.m. and be available via pay-per-view. A replay will air on Sun Sports at 8:30 on Sunday morning. Chandler Cooper and UFs other newcomers are adjusting to a new system of preparation with the season opener approaching. See story, page 14. David Carr / Alligator Staff Running back Mike Gillislee (23) runs toward the end zone while being chased by Missouri linebacker SENIOR FOCUSED ON JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Mike Gillislee has new goals. He predicted a 1,500-yard, 24-touchdown senior season in July at Southeastern Conference Media Days. After rushing for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Floridas 14-6 win over LSU on within 100 yards and six touchdowns of those marks. But, in the four games following his explosion against the Tigers, Gillislees averages have fallen off. He has neither scored a rushing touchdown nor run for more than 80 yards in a single game since. None of that matters to Gillislee now. Instead, he has shifted his focus away from numbers. No, Gillislee said when asked if he had new statistical goals in season and win out. With at least four games left to play, Gillislee would only need to average slightly more than 50 yards per game to become the since Ciatrick Fason ran for 1,267 yards in 2004. That statistic doesnt interest Gillislee either. No, not really, Gillislee said regarding whether or not the 1,000-yard mark was on his mind. with a good record. Florida followed the win against LSU with a 31-17 victory at Vanderbilt and a 44-11 win against South Carolina in The Swamp. Gillislee was held to just 104 yards on 2.9 yards per carry in the two games. During UFs 5-0 start, he averaged 5.3 yards per rush. Still, the Gators reached his goal of simply getting the win. But they did not do so against Georgia. In UFs 17-9 loss, Gillislee ran for just 77 yards on 22 carries. He may not have matched his gaudy early-season numbers on Saturday, but he still keyed Floridas offense in a 14-7 win against Missouri. Gillislee caught a 45yard game-winning touchdown on a screen pass in the fourth Gillislee pleased with performance despite statistical downturn ADAM LICHTENSTEIN Alligator Writer Erika Tymrak had a successful regular season, but her talents have shined through in the postseason. the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Year last week despite missing three games with an ular season ranked among the top 10 in the conference in goals or points. time Ive ever gotten injured where I was out for a couple games, she said. It was really hard on me. Im just honored that I could get that award. However, as the calendar changed to November and the SEC Tournament began, Tymrak heated up. In the three games the Gators played en route to the SEC Tournament championship, Tymrak scored three times and picked up three assists. Her three scores totaled 38 percent of Floridas offense, and her nine points in the tournament accounted for one-third of the total points the Gators earned. For Tymraks efforts, the league named her the tournaments most valuable player. She was really remarkable this weekend, coach Becky Burleigh said. It wasnt like she was doing all these spectacular individual things. ball out, making great decisions. It was completely deserved when she was the MVP. Tymrak was named SEC Offensive Senior thriving in postseason Florida football hasnt done much growling in recent years. The homecoming game, usually against a lesser opponent, is supposed to and generate excitement among the student body. Instead, the Gators have experienced a Gator Growl hangover, and the product on the night before: Its been uninspiring. Last season, the Gators needed to recover a late onside kick to secure a victory against Vanderbilt. In the past three seasons, the homecoming game has been decided by an average of less than four points. Florida lost 10-7 to Mississippi State in 2010. The No. 7 Gators host the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns of the Sun Belt Conference on Saturday. With a victory, UF would move one game closer to completing just its fourth undefeated home slate in the past 11 seasons. There wont be a homecoming loss for the Gators this season Ill bet a Josh Turner CD on that but a Furman-type collapse is certainly possible. That cant happen for Florida. While the Ragin Cajuns may seem like pushovers, the Gators cant fall back into their winning ugly ways. On homecoming weekend, with the fans clamoring for any semblance of an offense, Florida must beat Louisiana and beat it bad. It starts with winning at home, Muschamp said. Having been a visitor here bein here and play well and win a game. So, Ive tried to stress it since Day 1 with our players the importance of playing well at home and defending The Swamp. Florida has to prove to its faithful that it is the team that thoroughly dominated LSU and not the team that squeaked past Missouri. With two non-conference laughers coming up, the Gators need a solid showing to continue to stay in any sort of BCS conversation.Even against weakling, UF must play well at homecoming THE ADAM BOMBSEE GILLISLEE, PAGE 15 SEE SOCCER, PAGE 15 SEE ADAM, PAGE 15 [Being injured] was really hard on me.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Writer Between the largest freshman class in the 39-year history of the program and junior transfer Vicky McIntyre, the Gators have had a busy offseason meshing new talents and personalities. With Florida set to open its season OConnell Center, things are about to get even busier. Having spent the offseason solely focused on improving themselves, the Gators are now tasked with learning the tendencies of upcoming opponents. Junior Jaterra Bonds said the transition from focusing on Florida to studying opfreshmen. As a freshman, it is going to seem like its another class, Bonds said. Not only do you have to know our plays and where to go, but you have to know the other team and their plays and their strengths and their weaknesses. in high school. They are responsible for knowing about six plays the opponent might run, as well as which players have a tendency to drive, shoot or pass an understanding that develops through hours a team. Its going to be different for them, Bonds said. But after a while, they will start to get used to it. They will be able to adapt. Because freshmen make up a majority of the roster, the coaching staff has placed high expectations on each one. There is no learning curve for this team. They dont get to be freshmen, coach Amanda Butler said. Thats what is going to be next to their name on the roster, but they are going to have to play and play important roles for us. To help the newcomers get comfortable with the process, the coaching staff put together a scouting report for two recent scrimmages. Though the scouting reports were for games that did not count, they were more extensive than any the freshmen had ever seen. You have to know who is a shooter, who is their best defender and if they like to run man-to-man or [zone], freshman Christin Mercer said. It is really challenging. Freshman Chandler Cooper said she has noticed a difference in intensity as the season approaches. The coaching staff expects the newcomers to have a strong understanding of the game. Basketball is more than coming out here and playing, Cooper said. Its a lot more intellectual than people realize. Its not just go out here and make a play.

We want to go undefeated in The Swamp this year. as kind to Florida as it was in the 1990s. The Gators sported a 30-game home winning streak from 1994-1998. Florida went 9-5 at Florida Field from 2010-11. Coming into 2012, the players were tired of losing. Muschamp said special seasons arent possible without defending your home turf. We dont lose in The Swamp, senior running back Mike Gillislee said. Only Gators get out alive. The past two years we lost in The Swamp, and we wanted to get it back to how it used to be. Muschamp called The Swamp one of the top arenas in sports. Florida will determine whether the energy level is high against Louisiana on Saturday. Its a really exciting time here at the University of Florida, and I know its important for us to get back in The Swamp and play well again, Muschamp said. Floridas seniors will be recognized on the Gator Growl stage on Friday night. Its time they put on a show come Saturday. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@ alligator.org.David Carr / Alligator Staff quarter. I already knew it was a touchdown, Omarius Hines said. As soon as he caught it, I already knew, because thats Gilly. Thats what Gilly does. In addition to the game-winning touchdown, Gillislee rushed for more than 4 yards per carry for notched a game-high 23-yard run on his second touch. The gain was his longest since he recorded a 45-yard carry in Floridas win against Tennessee on Sept. 15. I told [offensive coordinator Brent Pease] going into the game we were going to be a little hardheaded with Gilly today, coach Will Muschamp said on Saturday. We were going to get him today. Gillislee wore a shirt on Monday that read, Run more than your mouth. Whether the gaudy statistics return or not, hes not likely to comment much. At this point, he just doesnt want his contributions to count toward losses. Im not a guy that likes to talk a lot, Gillislee said. (I) just go out there and do it.

She had a pretty big headache, Burleigh said. They did a CT scan and everything was normal. Burleigh said the team had not ruled out a concussion, and that Dragotta was scheduled to undergo more evaluations on Monday. Burleigh said junior Caroline Triglia will likely start if Dragotta is not available. Sophomore defender Annie Bobbitt did not play during the SEC Tournament after leaving the Gators Oct. 19 match against Alabama with a knee sprain. Burleigh said before the tournament that Bobbitt would likely play but said on Monday that although Bobbitt was physically ready, the team never needed to use her. Sophomore Karina Gutsche started in Bobbitts place. Different people have stepped up at different times, Burleigh said. We lose Kat (Williamson), our All-American, and then we replace her with Annie now Karinas playing, and shes been awesome. She was just a monster back there this weekend. NCAA Tournament brackets released: On Monday afternoon, the NCAA Tournament bracket was released. Florida was seeded No. 2 in its bracket and matched up with Florida Gulf Coast, which is 14-3-3 this season. If Florida defeats FGCU, it will play either UCF or Miami in the second round. Miami defeated Florida 4-1 to begin this season, and Knights beat the Gators 3-2 in the NCAA Tournament last year. Although that loss ended Floridas season, Burleigh doesnt have revenge on her mind. Im not even thinking about that game, she said. SOCCER, from page 13

The caller claimed that if the student sent money, then the family member would be released unharmed, UPD Sgt. Kristy Maculan said. One student received a call that her father was being held hostage. She said she hadnt spoken to her father in years, Maculan said. So they eventually hung up. Maculan said these incidents were ing reported to UPD, but this type of scam has been common for years across the world. She said she was unsure how the callers had gotten the students phone numbers. Anyone who receives a similar call should report it to UPD. Remain calm. Dont send any money. Dont provide any personal information, Maculan said. If you have any way to contact that family member, then do that.

ANDREA CARROZAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents are helping Hurricane Sandy victims get back on their feet. Throughout the city, organizations are sending out volunteers and collecting donations to help people whose homes were destroyed in the past week by the hurricane. St. Augustine Catholic Church and Holy Faith Catholic Church held a special collection during their services Saturday and Sunday. The University Lutheran Church is also collecting money to help victims. The bishop of the Diocese of St. Augustine, located in Jacksonville, also asked more than 60 parishes that are spread out in 17 counties in North Florida to hold a special collection during all masses on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18, said Christina Retzer, editorial assistant for the director of communications at the Diocese of St. Augustine. The money raised will be sent to Catholic Charities USA, a private network of social service organizations. It will distribute the money to those in need in Northern states. The American Red Cross in Alachua County is recruiting volunteers to help at shelters and other locations. Eleven volunteers from around Central Florida have traveled to help so far. A local volunteer said everything was going good, but were going to move to open another 500-people shelter, said Casey Schmelz, emergency services manager for the organization. The American Red Cross has provided about 92,000 shelters since evacuation began, Schmelz said. As of Sunday, the American Red Cross collected $30 million nationally. It empowers them to get back to normal, she said.City organizations send volunteers, money to storm victims MICHELLE PLITNIKASAlligator Contributing WriterWhen students reach for a can of Red Bull to keep them awake through an all-night study session, they may be getting more caffeine than they expect. A recent Consumer Reports study found that energy drinks such as Red Bull and Monster do not always accurately report how much caffeine they contain, if they report it at all. According to the report, 11 of the 27 top-selling energy drinks in the U.S. do not specify the amount of caffeine they contain. contained more caffeine than listed on their labels. On average, the actual amount was 20 percent more caffeine than listed. Janis Mena, coordinator of nutrition services at UFs Student Health Care Center, said a study on caffeine content in coffee done at UF found caffeine varies from cup to cup by as much as 200 or 300 milligrams. When it comes to energy drinks, however, Mena said, I think there should be truth in labeling. Mena said caffeine, which is a stimulant, cause dizziness and can increase heart rate and blood pressure. Aly Perez, a 21-year-old advertising senior, said she does not look at labels. She also said she doesnt really care how much caffeine is in her favorite energy drink, the low-carb Monster in the blue can. Consumer Reports study echoes Perezs view; it said Monster reported it does not include actual caffeine content on the label because numbers are not meaningful to most consumers. Elaine Turner, senior associate dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, wrote in an email that caffeine content is not required by law to be listed on food labels. Because caffeine is only present in a small percentage of foods and beverages available to consumers, she said, requiring companies to include caffeine content on labels doesnt make sense. Mena said the best way to cient amount of sleep and food. Drinking a reasonable amount of ing sleep and food with caffeine doesnt work. If you need energy in the morning, eat breakfast, she said. Its probably much better for sustainable energy than a stimulant such as caffeine would be. in popular energy drinks AUDREYANNA LOGUERREAlligator Contributing WriterBedbugs often sleep in others beds, but they dont want to cuddle. The blood-sucking insects can thrive with less access to feeding, according to a new UF study published online by the Medical and Veterinary Entomology. The study measured the number of bedbugs that would be necessary to remove 5 percent of a persons blood. The bugs will produce more eggs if there is more food, said Roberto Pereira, associate research scientist at the Department of Entomology and Nematology. Weak organisms are prone to diseases, he said. The body is weak because a lot of blood is taken out. About 24,000 bedbugs feeding on a 154-pound adult and 3,400 bedbugs feeding on a 22-pound baby can cause harm, according to the study. The study showed the dark-brown insects were full after 10 minutes of feeding. Pereira said most peoples beds are usually infested with bedbugs by sleeping in infested hotel rooms. UFs dorms have mostly been bedbug-free. Wayne Walker, the senior pest control technician for the University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education, said he has received about three or four complaints since the beginning of the semester about possible bedbugs, but there hasnt been a case of bedbugs in the residence halls for more than a year. Weve been real fortunate, he said. He said he doesnt think the bedbug problem will go away, but its something he and his staff will have to be vigilant about. We need to continue to educate the residents and make sure we inspect the rooms very thoroughly, Walker said. If you need energy in the morning, eat breakfast. Its probably much better for sustainable energy than a stimulant such as caffeine would be.Janis Menacoordinator of nutrition services at UFs Student Health Care CenterResidents can donate online, tooPereira CRIME CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA Gainesville mans request for a dollar from a stranger turned into an attempted robbery that landed him behind bars Monday morning. Gainesville Police arrested Jason Hardy, 27, of 2911 NE 15th St., on a felony attempted robbery charge, according to a GPD arrest report. At about 12:45 a.m. Monday, Hardy walked up to a man in the 200 block of West University Avenue and asked him for money. The man ignored Hardy and walked away. Hardy told the man he would rob him of everything that he had and that he had a pistol in his pocket, according to the report. The man ran into a nearby bar to call police. Hardy followed and once inside, said to the man, If you come outside I will mess you up. A bartender ordered Hardy out of the bar. Hardy then rode away on his bicycle before police arrived. At 2:06 a.m, police located and arrested Hardy in the 400 block of West University Avenue. After his arrest, Hardy told man for a light and got heated when the man ignored him, according to the report. Police booked Hardy into Alachua County Jail at 2:22 a.m., where he remained Monday night with a $50,000 bond. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.Hardy

As users progress through college, we can look at tracking and how performance changes as a function of being at that university for four years, he said. Website users were asked to play brain-training games, Sternberg said. The individual game scores were then combined to create an average for the institution. Orlando said the study method was interesting even though rankings do not necessarily depict how smart students truly are. [Employers] like our students because theyre well-rounded, he said. We have a lot of other indicators that show our students are wellprepared when they graduate. Meghan Bradley, a 21-year-old the ranking because UF offers a variety of opportunities to its students.

Mondays question: Did you vote early?64% YES 36% NOGet Out The VoteThen just get outWhy in the world are we allowed to vote for president? Take a look around you. Do you really want that guy to have a hand in deciding your future? BuzzFeed published a post on Monday titled: People Who Wont Be Making A Difference On Tuesday. Author Katie Notopoulos took screen captures of pretty typical and average Twitter users who asked what they thought were important questions about Election Day. Some key tweets: How do you know if your register to vote? i wana vote next weeekend just dont know how to register :/ #wahh @ladygaga Its too late for me to register to vote, Im so Dumb, I forgot :/ We have no idea what excuse people had that allowed them to forget to register to vote. Yes, we live in a college town. Yes, we live in a battleground/ swing/targeted state, which means we are around politics possibly more than some of the other people in this country. But presidential elections are every four years. This is a routine thing. This was not a surprise that snuck up on everybody. The people on that list will not be voting in this election cycle; thats pretty safe to say. Thousands more will, though. And you should want to be one of them. Were a generation who thrives on sharing all of our most personal news quickly. We take deep photographs of our coffee. We complain about our emotions and then complain when people offer to help. We share campaigns to take down evil, foreign regimes without ever leaving the comfort of our couches. Someone decided a long time ago that we have a voice in our politics. We are an awkward and anxious generation, but somehow we have power and authority every once in a while. Its time to use it. This isnt a call to arms. This isnt a broadcast to the desolate-youth types of the world who think their voice isnt heard. Because this is America, and for some reason we still have an Electoral College, our direct voice gets diluted through a couple bureaucracies before its actually heard. But its still our America. Its our bureaucracies. Were in charge of how our country affects us and every other country. Its kind of like the Gilmore Girls theme song. Where you lead, I will follow. Foreign policy is like Gilmore Girls: fast-paced, confusing and full of references that you dont understand. Our country affects everyone around us, but sometimes we forget that. Make the responsible choice when you vote today (if you havent voted already). Choose the local and national candidates who not only have your best interests at heart but who will also act responsibly on our behalf as a country as a whole. Find some joy in your civic duty, but please take it seriously. There will always be fools on Twitter who rant about how dumb they are. Lets be better than them. Youre already ahead of the game. Not that Florida is a model citizen for anything, but we have the blessing/curse of being a sought-after state. We get to hear a lot of different sides from all of the candidates.Celebrate your right: Its Election Day! You registered. You stood in line. You took part in one of the most important occasions our nation will ever practice. Congratulations! I want to dedicate this column to you, voter. Be ensured you made a difference. If you feel like your vote doesnt really count, be assured that it certainly matters and so do you. To those of you who may be reading this before casting a ballot, be encouraged! Please dont give up or get out of line. Patience is a virtue, and its remarkable that you came out wanting to make your voice heard. Remember, good things come to those who wait. Maybe consider voting early the next time around. so I hope the experience was both rewarding and memorable it only happens once. Cherish the moment, and make it a memory youll want to tell your children about. It certainly was for me! It just so happened I got the chance to snap a photo with singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles right before I cast my ballot downtown. I know many of you feel a little overwhelmed by what youve seen leading up to this day. Advocates of voter registration were in your face, the advertisements have been in your face and some aspect of the election has been everywhere you were whether it was in conversation, on your television, on a social media feed, on peoples clothes or on the bumper of the car in front of you. Find courage in knowing it was and really is all for the best. I encourage you to tune in to the networks that will be broadcasting the results tonight. You wont realize until later how rewarding of an experience it is to watch history happen. This is a big deal, people! Whatever the result of this future of our nation. Have fun with it. See if you can correctly predict which candidate will win each state. Have snacks and watch with your friends and loved ones. Most importantly, be informed. Continue to voice your thoughts as well. I have loved seeing my Facebook and Twitter campaigns as a whole. OK, I havent loved everything thats been said, but what I do love is the fact that people, young people especially, are paying attention and believe their opinions have value because they do. Although you may not have the same political beliefs you think about it, the difference in opinions should remind you of the freedom of speech and right to free choice we all possess. Sometimes I wish we could observe Election Day the same way we observe many other holidays. Id be ecstatic getting a day off work or school to go vote, be happy about it and watch the results unfold. Maybe the extra time could make the process of voting on Election Day much easier. Then again, maybe less people would vote early and the polls would be overcrowded that Tuesday. Who knows? What I am saying is I wish Election Day was something people looked forward to and commemorated, an occasion they would enjoy rather than dread. Celebrate today! This is your country. When its all said amendments are passed, it is we the people who together make this nation what it is. Anayo Ordu is an advertising sophomore at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterFor James Paulk, the Thanksgiving season is a reminder of growing up in a one-parent home. He said he knew his mom ten oblivious to as a child. As well as lots of love, we always had lots of food in that cabinet, he said. As Paulk stood inside the Alachua County Fairgrounds Exhibition Building surrounded by tables piled three cans high with donated food, he said volunteer ing at the Strike Out Hunger Food Drive was his way to give back. The operation that began Monday will collect food until 7 p.m. today. Volunteers will distribute to area food banks Wednesday and will be distributing Thanksgiving food baskets to Gainesville families Thursday. John Barli, volunteer coordinator for Catholic Charities, said the fairgrounds saw a variety of doloaded with donations from docments. Its been a big mix of everybody, he said. Barli, who had been unpacking cardboard boxes of canned vegetables, said this years goal is to put together 1,000 food baskets to give away to families. He said food supplies will also go to restock local food pantries. Its kind of just spreading the wealth, he said. Rodney Long, the former Alachua County commissioner who began the food drive in 2008, said he expects people to rely on the drive heavily this year because more families have been affected by a declining economy. The need this year is greater than it was last year because the circumstances are worse, Long said. He said businesses, churches and organizations across Gainesville have teamed up to provide donations with about 60 to 75 volunteers. Long said the goal of the food drive is to strengthen families in the Gainesville community. When you actually provide a meal to a family, it provides a sense of dignity and hope, he said. Thats what this is all about. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 Odori Hines, a 31-year-old UF alumnus, sorts food collected Monday during the Strike Out Hunger Food Drive at the Alachua County Fairgrounds. Its actually a lot of fun, he said. AMELIA BUTLERAlligator Contributing WriterGatorCloud is about to drench UFs campus with data. At the UF Research Computing Day last week at the McKnight Brain Institute, UF announced the start of production on a more modern cyberinfrastructure that uses BIGDATA, or a collection of large and complex data sets, and GatorCloud, a computing system that will store data and maintain software so that users of any device can store and retrieve information without having to download a new operating system. Director of UF High Per formance Computing Center Erik Deumens spoke about the campus network changes at the event. Deumens said BIGDATA and GatorCloud could make UF one of the top 10 research universities. UFs infrastructure helps the university compete for more grants, he said, adding that UF can attract the best researchers with BIGDATA. BIGDATA and Gator Cloud will be introduced on a stronger form of Internet, known as Internet2. Internet2 working group that includes more than 200 American universities, as well as corporations, government agencies and laboratories, according to its website. BIGDATA makes it easier amounts of memory space. GatorCloud is a data-stor ing cyberinfrastructure that will reduce the need for software, Deumens said. You used to have to print out a long research document and FedEx it to the research lab across the country, he told the crowd. Now we have the cyberinfrastructure long distances quickly. Emma Malloy, 20, a health science junior, said she thinks GatorCloud will be helpful to researchers. GatorCloud will help our future, she said. It will make research more accessible. Vice President and Chief Informaof UF Elias Eldayrie told the audience a 10,000-square-foot data center will open in February 2013. UF was awarded a Major Research Instrumentation Program grant for the creation of GatorCloud, Eldayrie said. Andy Li, an associate professor for the UF Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is working on GatorCloud. He spoke about its innovative infrastructure at the event. Memory is practically unlimited on the cloud, Li said. He said full cloud capabilities will be available in Summer 2013.System helps with memory problems for UF researchersFood drive makes baskets of hope

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffThe Calm Before the Storm SUJIE WUAlligator Contributing WriterUF students have the chance to meet, help and often befriend international students without ever leaving Gainesville. About 200 students from all over the world come to UF each semester, according to the UF Language Learning Center website. Students who sign up for conversation partners are matched with English-speaking volunteers. Together, they participate in the English Language Institutes Conversation Partner Program. The partners meet up for about an hour a week, or they can make up their own schedules. They spend at least half the time speaking in English. Its really up to the students how much they want to get exposure to English outside of the classroom, said Amy Bradley, a 22-yearold language assistant at ELI and linguistics graduate student. Students of any major can volunteer, she said. Most of the international students have never been outside of their own countries before, so it can be hard for them to adjust to the new environment and language. Carolina Diaz, an adjunct lecturer at the institute, said some international students tend to congregate with people from their own countries with the same language. They dont progress as fast as students who get out there every day, and they make friends who speak English, Bradley said. Nataliya Ostarova, 21, who came to UF from Russia about two months ago, said it was sometimes hard for her to ask people to repeat their sentences when she didnt understand what they said. But her conversation partner makes her feel comfortable to ask any question, she said. Being exposed to different cultures is also valuable for the volunteers, Diaz said. Whats underplayed sometimes is the this partnership, she said. Ryan Smitz, a 21-year-old conversation volunteer and Spanish and linguistics junior, said he had a Brazilian conversation partner last semester named Rodrigo Ramalho Diniz. Even though Diniz went back to Brazil, the two still maintain their friendship. I know what it is [like] to struggle through that process and to make all those mistakes, he said. But I also know how helpful it can be to have somebody there who is completely nonjudgmental and relatable. Smitz said he tries not to use fancy words for people who just started learning English. I try to be that one person who they dont have to worry about making mistakes from, he said.International students speak up with language volunteers

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Floyd earns weekly honorJunior Sharrif Floyd was named the SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the a quarterback hurry in Floridas 14-7 win against Missouri on Saturday. UF-Jacksonville State broadcast informationUFs game against Jacksonville State on Nov. 17 will kick off at 1 p.m. and be available via pay-per-view. A replay will air on Sun Sports at 8:30 on Sunday morning. Chandler Cooper and UFs other newcomers are adjusting to a new system of preparation with the season opener approaching. See story, page 14. David Carr / Alligator Staff Running back Mike Gillislee (23) runs toward the end zone while being chased by Missouri linebacker SENIOR FOCUSED ON JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Mike Gillislee has new goals. He predicted a 1,500-yard, 24-touchdown senior season in July at Southeastern Conference Media Days. After rushing for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Floridas 14-6 win over LSU on within 100 yards and six touchdowns of those marks. But, in the four games following his explosion against the Tigers, Gillislees averages have fallen off. He has neither scored a rushing touchdown nor run for more than 80 yards in a single game since. None of that matters to Gillislee now. Instead, he has shifted his focus away from numbers. No, Gillislee said when asked if he had new statistical goals in season and win out. With at least four games left to play, Gillislee would only need to average slightly more than 50 yards per game to become the since Ciatrick Fason ran for 1,267 yards in 2004. That statistic doesnt interest Gillislee either. No, not really, Gillislee said regarding whether or not the 1,000-yard mark was on his mind. with a good record. Florida followed the win against LSU with a 31-17 victory at Vanderbilt and a 44-11 win against South Carolina in The Swamp. Gillislee was held to just 104 yards on 2.9 yards per carry in the two games. During UFs 5-0 start, he averaged 5.3 yards per rush. Still, the Gators reached his goal of simply getting the win. But they did not do so against Georgia. In UFs 17-9 loss, Gillislee ran for just 77 yards on 22 carries. He may not have matched his gaudy early-season numbers on Saturday, but he still keyed Floridas offense in a 14-7 win against Missouri.

It was really hard on me. Im just honored that I could get that award. However, as the calendar changed to November and the SEC Tournament began, Tymrak heated up. In the three games the Gators played en route to the SEC Tournament championship, Tymrak scored three times and picked up three assists. Her three scores totaled 38 percent of Floridas offense, and her nine points in the tournament accounted for one-third of the total points the Gators earned. For Tymraks efforts, the league named her the tournaments most valuable player. She was really remarkable this weekend, coach Becky Burleigh said. It wasnt like she was doing all these spectacular individual things. ball out, making great decisions. It was completely deserved when she was the MVP. Tymrak was named SEC Offensive Senior thriving in postseason Florida football hasnt done much growling in recent years. The homecoming game, usually against a lesser opponent, is supposed to and generate excitement among the student body. Instead, the Gators have experienced a Gator Growl hangover, and the product on the night before: Its been uninspiring. Last season, the Gators needed to recover a late onside kick to secure a victory against Vanderbilt. In the past three seasons, the homecoming game has been decided by an average of less than four points. Florida lost 10-7 to Mississippi State in 2010. The No. 7 Gators host the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns of the Sun Belt Conference on Saturday. With a victory, UF would move one game closer to completing just its fourth undefeated home slate in the past 11 seasons. There wont be a homecoming loss for the Gators this season Ill bet a Josh Turner CD on that but a Furman-type collapse is certainly possible. That cant happen for Florida. While the Ragin Cajuns may seem like pushovers, the Gators cant fall back into their winning ugly ways. On homecoming weekend, with the fans clamoring for any semblance of an offense, Florida must beat Louisiana and beat it bad. It starts with winning at home, Muschamp said. Having been a visitor here bein here and play well and win a game. So, Ive tried to stress it since Day 1 with our players the importance of playing well at home and defending The Swamp. Florida has to prove to its faithful that it is the team that thoroughly dominated LSU and not the team that squeaked past Missouri. With two non-conference laughers coming up, the Gators need a solid showing to continue to stay in any sort of BCS conversation.Even against weakling, UF must play well at homecoming THE ADAM BOMBSEE GILLISLEE, PAGE 15 SEE SOCCER, PAGE 15 SEE ADAM, PAGE 15 [Being injured] was really hard on me.

Its going to be different for them, Bonds said. But after a while, they will start to get used to it. They will be able to adapt. Because freshmen make up a majority of the roster, the coaching staff has placed high expectations on each one. There is no learning curve for this team. They dont get to be freshmen, coach Amanda Butler said. Thats what is going to be next to their name on the roster, but they are going to have to play and play important roles for us. To help the newcomers get comfortable with the process, the coaching staff put together a scouting report for two recent scrimmages. Though the scouting reports were for games that did not count, they were more extensive than any the freshmen had ever seen.

Burleigh said junior Caroline Triglia will likely start if Dragotta is not available. Sophomore defender Annie Bobbitt did not play during the SEC Tournament after leaving the Gators Oct. 19 match against Alabama with a knee sprain. Burleigh said before the tournament that Bobbitt would likely play but said on Monday that although Bobbitt was physically ready, the team never needed to use her. Sophomore Karina Gutsche started in Bobbitts place. Different people have stepped up at different times, Burleigh said. We lose Kat (Williamson), our All-American, and then we replace her with Annie now Karinas playing, and shes been awesome. She was just a monster back there this weekend. NCAA Tournament brackets released: On Monday afternoon, the NCAA Tournament bracket was released. Florida was seeded No. 2 in its bracket and matched up with Florida Gulf Coast, which is 14-3-3 this season. If Florida defeats FGCU, it will play either UCF or Miami in the second round.
