SHE WON $2,500. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterOn Wednesday, Marielis Nieves thought all she had to look forward to for the rest of the day was a two-hour drive with her father from Gainesville back home to St. Marys, Ga. She never expected to be $2,500 richer. Nieves, 18, was in a meeting with four other students of UFs Innovation Academy, an enrollment model in which students attend classes only during the Spring and Summer semesters, when Jim Pepper, knocked on the door. Trebilcock came into the room and awarded Nieves $2,500 because of her Giveaway. I cant believe this is happening, she said. In Nieves minute-long video, she described why she deserved the scholar ship, which ended with her dumping a In addition to $2,500, Nieves won a ticket to the SEC Championship game in Atlanta where, during halftime, she will have the chance to win a $100,000 scholarship. To win the $100,000, Nieves must net, which is about 2 feet wide, in under 30 seconds. She said she will have to start practicing her throw with her father soon.

Nieves said he was proud of her drive to make the video, which she did by her self, and always taught her to work hard no matter what. He said he was in Gainesville not only with his daughter, but to also work out Nieves is a Navy contractor, but business hasnt been good.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 We are living in exciting times. Things are different today than theyve ever been in the history of the world, and theyre changing all of the time. When I was in elementary school, to have a cellphone with a color screen was a big deal. Now, in college, its standard for phones to have Internet access and make you pancakes. Most of us live more comfortably than the kings of old did. In fact, trends show that there has been a clear increase in lifespan and income in nearly all countries over the course of the last 200 years. Think of the technology that we use every day. For the majority of human history, those things didnt exist. The printing press didnt exist until 1448. It took about 400 years after that for the telegraph to be invented. The time between the telegraph being invented and the Internet appearing in the public, however, is only about 200 years. For most of human history, we didnt even have farming. I think that as our understanding of the world increases and as our level of technology increases, we are able to develop more and more quickly. Some futurist thinkers, such as Ray Kurzweil and Vernor Vinge, observe models of accelerating growth and predict a turning point: the Singularity. What is the Singularity? but trust me, its not. It will happen in our lifetimes, and wed better be ready for it. The Singularity is the point at which were able to create computers that are more intelligent than humans, and not just one human, but all of humanity. At that point, which has been predicted to be sometime in the next 20 to 30 years, our level of technology will be astounding already. For example, Kurzweil predicts that well maintaining optimum functioning of our bodies. Googles exciting augmented reality glasses that so many of us are waiting for could very well be old news by then, too. Those are expected to be available in only a few years. So imagine what will happen when a single machine is smarter than we are. What new moral dilemmas will arise? Will we see the technology as alive? What will happen to us as our bodies move toward steel and away from carbon? Will we enter a dark posthuman future or a bright transhuman frontier? Will we be more loving and empathetic than ever, or will we lose those feelings? We cant tell. Its like humanitys discovis changing. Who could have predicted that the disof the Empire State Building? We must contemplate the implications of having such power. We cant be unprepared and just let the future hit us in the face. We have to be ready for this. Dont just laugh this off. Im sure there were people chuckling when scientists predicted that computers would beat chess champions in a game of chess. Im sure people would have laughed if you had told them about Skyrim in the days of Pong. Read up on the future. Ask yourself where youll stand on the upcoming moral dilemmas. Just as important, though, is the need for saturated in science, and we cant have the sions. Remember when Ted Stevens said that the Internet was a series of tubes? Hilarious. Were coming to a point when such ignorance will have dire consequences. We must hold ourselves and our policymakers to a higher standard if were going to survive the coming century. Will we have the knowledge and wisdom to navigate the changing landscape successfully? Sitting back isnt going to cut it. Wed better get busy reading or get busy dying. Brandon Lee Gagne is a UF anthropology senior. His column usually appears on Thursdays.Its only a matter of time before computers are smarter than we areColumn Brandon Lee Gagneopinions@alligator.org

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 Benjamin S. Brasch / Alligator StaffGainesville resident Josh Thompson, 23, drinks a mug of Big Nose beer at Mars Pub and Arcade on Wednesday night. KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterAfter a tear-stricken closing night at Mars Pub and Arcade, six regulars decided they didnt want to see their favorite bar close. All of us looked around at each other, said Dave Michael, one of the new owners, and said, What can we do to turn this around? So they bought the bar, made some renovations and reopened three weeks later. Michael, 38, swept his arm across his bar, pointing at new neon lights that glinted off his wide eyes. Mars Pub and Arcade was once known for its backroom laser tag, but the previous owners did away with the laser tag earlier this year. The new owners remade the bars image, adding stages and spaces for local artwork. The team built an art gallery where local artists can display and sell their work in the room where laser tag equipment was once stored. The bar, which reopened on Oct. 11, now has a stage for bands, which is raised off the ground and equipped with a full sound system and LED light display. Michael said the bar is planning to host live performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Michael said they built a restroom backstage for bands and are adding a washer, dryer and shower soon. way to make this great for musicians, said Michael, who is a member of local band Bang Bang Boom. One of the bar managers, James Barratt, pointed out a second bar by the stage, which will only sell cans of beer. It was made by bartender Travis Martin so that everyone can have a beer during a show, Barratt said. Other improvements include a fresh coat of paint, a new food menu and chalkboard walls in the bathroom so people will have erasable spaces to write on, rather than the walls. All renovations were done in three weeks. We basically lived here, Bar ratt said. I never want to see another Hot Pocket. Still, Barratt was enthusiastic to help rebuild and reopen the place that kept his favorite beer, Becks, in the bar just for him. Its like a second living room kind of place, he said. It sucks when your living room closes down. Patrons and band members said theyre excited that Mars wont be closing for good. Ian Bernacett, guitarist of Thee Holy Ghosts, which frequents Mars, said hes stoked that the bar reopened. Its the only place in town where we can book our own shows, said Bernacett, 22. For now, employees and owners are working together to continue improvements, Michael said, adding that the bar is employee-owned and operated. Everybody has a say in how it operates, Michael said. Its all a learning process. Barratt agreed. We wanted it to be a place that takes care of the bands, takes care of the patrons, takes care of the staff, he said. We want to do things the right way.

RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents who ask the Later Gators bus drivers to turn up the temperature this winter can expect the cold shoulder. The Regional Transit System bus service that routinely transports people to and from Midtown and downtown will continue to keep its air conditioning on at 65 degrees in the colder months. In the evenings, even in the winter time, drivers will not run the heat, said Chip Skinner, RTS marketing and communications supervisor. The cold has a calming effect and psychologirelated to heavy consumption of alcohol. He said drivers normally have the air conditioning on at night because Skinner said the heating and cooling system only has two settings: on or off. Students notice the bone-chilling temperature when they step on the bus. The last time I rode the Later Gator I was freezing, said Lauren Baker, 18, animal science freshman. I was with my friend, and we were both just wear ing tank top dresses and wedges. Skinner said RTS gets a few calls every year complaining about the temperature. He offered advice for riders braving a cold bus. Dress appropriately, Skinner said. Even in the summer months, take a lightweight jacket or sweater with you so you can be comfortable aboard the bus. 10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 Alex M.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville might not get snow this holiday season, but its getting an ice rink. In two weeks, Bo Diddley Community Plaza will be transformed into a winter wonderland where The rink, dubbed Plaza Ice Palace, will open Nov. 23 and run until Jan. 6. Participants can glide from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. One hour of skating costs $10 per person and includes skate rental. If patrons bring their own skates, admission is $7. Prior to 2007, the city offered an ice rink on Bo Diddley, but it had to be slashed from the budget because it became unaffordable, said David Ballard, events coordinator for City Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. In the past, he said, companies expected the city to pay large sums up front and to operate the exhibit the whole season. The bids for the ice rink were extremely high, and the companies wanted the city to foot all the costs, was not something the city could take on. Ballard said the owner of Midwest Display, a nowFlorida-based company that offers holiday decorations, approached the city this year about ending the thaw on Gainesville ice skating. Ballard said Midwest Display offered its services as a vendor, setting up at its own expense and paying the city a portion of the proceeds at the end. The ice skating rink will be sponsored by Gainesville Regional Utilities, and electrical utility customers will receive coupon discounts at the rink, said GRU spokeswoman Kendall Litton Jensen.

MELANIE BRKICHAlligator Contributing WriterUF seniors Aidan Augustin and Neal Ormsbee found their direction in life. They just had to stop going to class to do it. The 21-year-old best friends, roommates of three years and now business partners are the co-founders of Feathr, a startup that has created a smartphone application designed to change the way people network professionally. It all started with an idea: What if the concept of the business card could be revolutionized in the form of an app? One year after that initial idea was born, Feathr has become a completely student-run company complete with its own programming team, What people currently do is use paper business cards, but no one has the time with a stack of new contacts to put in all the info, for instance after a conference, Augustin said. Automating that process and making business cards digital so they can sync to all your devices facilitates the online, social-media culture we live in. The electronic business card-like inthe user to store new contacts information all in one place. There are buttons for email, phone, Twitter, a website or online portfolio, and theyre accessible with one tap. The seed for Feathr was planted when Augustin interned in Silicon Valley, Calif., during Summer 2011. He realized while at a networking event as he and other interns tried to clumsily swap information that there was no standardized way to electronically give people his card. He remembers joking with one woman about how we are some of the smartest people with supercomputers literally in The idea was still in the back of his mind when Augustin participated in a Start-Up Weekend in Tallahassee last fall, a competition that challenges entrepreneurial college-age students to create an entire concept and business model in two days. By the end of the weekend the concept was called CardSync, which would eventually become Feathr. His idea didnt win one of the prizes, but it was selected to be among the top 10 that were judged at the end. After trying to work on the company that semester while also taking classes, Augustin realized he couldnt pursue his business model as a fully enrolled student. But everything seemed to be lining up in favor of the company. Ormsbee, a computer science major, came fully onboard to assist with the programming. They decided over winter break of 2011 that they would drop out of school the next semester and work on their company full time. We sort of had a come to Jesus moment, Augustin said. The thing was, I said to Neal, Youre going to have to become a software god. Flash forward to Fall 2012, and the Feathr team has expanded to include programmers Gabe Busto, Tasha Hankewych, Andrew Kennedy and designer Will Newton. One of the neat things about startup life is that the teams are small, and everyone onboard is there because they love and believe in what theyre doing, Ormsbee said. new UF Innovation Hub that opened last January and is not much bigger than a study room at Library West. But its one of the most decorated and lived-in on their Computers, wires, smartphones and whiteboards covered in programming lanThe walls are plastered with inspirational quotes like Innovation is War, which reminds them that disrupting the way things are isnt always easy, and the V for Vendetta movie poster because we view ourselves as revolutionaries, Augustin said. one of the downsides of nurturing a startup is struggling for funds to keep it alive. They certainly arent doing it for money or to build a reputation, Ormsbee said. We dont have the funds to pay anyone what their talents are really worth. In just about a year, the Feathr team has become a family, and Augustin and Ormsbee have big plans for the future. The app week. Currently, a group of 1,200 people are beta testing the app for basic user-friendliness and to detect bugs. Augustin hopes to have the app available through the iTunes App Store by the end of January. A year from now, he predicts up to 1 million people using Feathr on their phones. By then I think well have sold Feathr and be millionaires by 25, Augustin said with a smile. 12, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 Melanie Brkich / AlligatorAidan Augustin, a 21-year-old industrial engineering senior, is hard at work at the TECHNOLOGYFormer UF students launch professional networking app

ALEX KLAUSNERAlligator Contributing WriterFour months after UF President Bernie Machen announced he will step down from his post next year, nobody is sure who will replace him. On-campus interviews will start soon, and updates from search committee chairman David Brown suggest the university is getting a lot of interest from leaders at other academic institutions. Names like Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and UF Proaround as candidates for the job, but as of now, anyone can be nominated. According to the presidential search committees list of desired criteria, UFs next leader should have an academic background and credentials, including a Ph.D. or highest degree in the chosen tional and international scholar of an administrative leadership posiOne of the things often mentioned is that UF is looking for a leader at an institution belonging to the Association of American Universities. Of the 61 AAU universities in the U.S., UF is the only one in Flor ida. Whoever the university chooses, the new president is going to face challenges, particularly of the According to UF budget documents, the state has cut roughly $183 million from UFs operating budget from 2008 to 2013. UF Vice President and CFO Matt Fajack said the universitys funding for new buildings has been cut drastically. While $183 million in lost state revenue sounds like a big number, it should be put in perspective. UF has a yearly budget of $4.6 billion, 10 percent of which are state dollars. Even if the state government decides to pull its punches when it comes to university funding, theres still the federal government to worry about, said Cheri Brodeur, Faculty Senate chairwoman and a member of UFs Board of Trustees. Brodeur said the federal government is discussing cutting down on research funding. With that as a possibility, Brodeur said its going to be important for administration to do what it can to retain faculty and students. We want to avoid a brain Faculty, she said, can attract students. If key faculty leave, students could leave as well. People think theres still some But Fajack and UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes say the time for cutting is over, and the time for growth is now. In fact, because Florida took cuts early on, Sikes said, Florida might be a better position for an incoming president because he or she wouldnt have to make a series of unpopular cuts off the bat. While the position carries an enormous amount of prestige, not everyone is chomping at the bit to lead the Gator Nation. Twenty other institutions are searching for new presidents or chancellors, including Princeton University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Louisiana State University and the University of Georgia. Brown said 10 of the 20 are inter ested in candidates who are similar to those UF hopes to attract. An additional hurdle is Sunshine Law, Brodeur said. The Sunshine Law is a public records law in Florida that requires virtually all government business to be done in the public eye. With UF being a state institution, almost everything is documented as a matter of public record, including the list of those who have applied to the job. However, some sitting presidents at other research institutions wont even consider the position because of this law. The major deterrent isnt necessarily because they dont want their on-campus business done in the open, Brodeur said. Instead, its more about the types of questions they might face from their own Board of Trustees and other inter ested parties back at home if they didnt get the position. Weve got a long way to go besaid. dent the university has a lot to offer over other universities. It is, according to the U.S. News and World Report, the top-ranked public school in the state.

Dewey plans to lead the pa rade, and Col. David J. Clark, director of the committee, will present him with his plaque and award at about 10:30 a.m. at Van Fleet Hall on campus. Dewey received his Medal of Honor in 1953. He was serving as a machine gunner in Company E. He and his assistant gunner were hurt and receiving medical atten tion when a grenade landed near him. Dewey yelled for other Marines to get out of the way, while he smothered the deadly missile with his body, personally absorbing the full force of the explo sion to save his comrade from pos sible injury or death, according to his Medal of Honor citation. Commander of the Ko rean War Veterans Associa vis said he is a good friend of Deweys. He said Dewey told D.

SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterIts hard to know why the banisters are always sticky. The wooden railings are covered with a noxious combination of substances from Gatorade to grain alcohol, a small taste of the shenanigans that happen inside the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity house many of which would give any mother a migraine. But the fraternitys chief secretkeeper isnt a special room full of guarded mysteries shes a vivacious 63-year-old West Virginian. Donna Land is one of a handful of fraternity housemothers who live with upward of 50 sometimes-drunk college-aged men. She has lived at the fraternity house for the past four years after her two children moved out of Gainesville. Lands daughter, Summer, said shes glad her mother is keeping busy and thought Lands experience working at a nursery was the best preparation for the job. They never sleep, and you never know when someone is going to vomit, Summer said. But Land loves her boys too much to make a fuss. Sometimes its loud and sometimes its late, but I really enjoy it, she said, smiling. Shes the only parent in the house, something shes familiar with after raising two children on her own. She credits her upbringing in the Southeast with helping her learn to live on her own. Its hard not to notice some of Lands Southern traits. Her soft, Apsation like the smell of magnolia in spring. The quirks stem from Lands upbringing in the small coal-mining life when she went to the Massey Business College in Atlanta, now named the Art Institute of Atlanta. She dated a Kappa Sigma up the road at Georgia Technical University and noticed an older woman around the house. Id see this old woman walking around, she said. Id ask, Why is she here? She laughed. And now its full circle. Land also found love in college and married Steve Land. The two and Donna gave birth to her son soon after. She was beginning to form a family. Everything was per fect, until one summer day. Steve went to South Carolina without Land, and he decided to go for an early morning swim. He was carried out to sea by a powerful rip current. Donna never saw her husband again but had her hands full with one young child and another on the way. There was almost no time to grieve between raising two newborns into adults, she carried the weight of two parents. My husband died in June, my son turned 2 in July and my daughter was born in August, Land said. It was just shocking. But when her children graduated from high school and went out of state for college, Land began to feel a void in her life. It was time for a change which drifted Lands way after she learned that an acquaintance got a job as Chi Phis house mom at UF. Land jumped at the next chance to apply for a housemother opening. The job seems like Lands second wind. She beams a calm serenity, twanged with an infectious love of fun. Lands main responsibilities are inspections, hosting the Game Day barbecues, putting up decorations for the annual Christmas dinner and sending invitations out for Founders Day weekend. She loves putting on these big things and meeting all the families, Lands daughter said. Her apartment doesnt have any trouble with the creaky doors and the interior of the house. She has a living room about the size of three parking spaces with a small, attached kitchen and pantry. A hallway leads to a bathroom, which leads into her bedroom. Light streams through six windows that face the courtyard of the fraternity. Some of her favorite memories with the fraternity happened on that patch of weedy pavement. One of her favorite fraternity parties is Alpha Tau Omegas Volcano, which happens once every Fall. The men build a 30to 40-foot tall volcano in the courtyard, complete with a builtin bar. I love the energy, I love the exuberance, and I love the creativity that goes into building the volcano, Land said. Its such a bonding thing, they really have a good time out there. Its so cool. She has an appreciation for rowdiness and debauchery rarely seen in a woman her age, but she refuses to tell some of her favorite stories about the fraternity. Well the best ones I wouldnt tell I used to say that they pay me for my silence, Land joked. She rarely ventures upstairs to where the men live half out of respect for their space and half out of She also enjoys the more quiet times she shares with the brothers, like eating dinner with the new brothers. Land feels a special connection with the men shes tasked with watching over. She said she would never dare to breathe a bad word about any of her boys. Oh no, Ive got my boys back all the time, she said. We support each other. Outside of the brotherhood, Land has found a sisterhood of her own. Every week, the fraternity housemothers and the sorority housemothers will get together on differ ent days to get dinner or go out on the town. They commiserate, laugh, tell stories about their kids and get a much-needed break from 20-yearolds. Though her son and daughter live across the globe, Land said she feels like loved ones always sur round her. Summer Land said shes grateful that her mother had the chance to start fresh. Its a really good thing for her, she said. With my brother in San Francisco and me in Australia, this is the perfect thing to keep her occupied all day. The brothers at Alpha Tau Omega house have a tradition that also makes Land feel more like part of a family. They all call me mom, she said. Its especially fun for me because my real children call me Donna. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@ alligator.org.

Story by COLLEEN WRIGHT Photos by Brett Le BlancFueled by coffee, Tara Cohen negotiated with garage sale shoppers rummaging for a bargain on a foggy Saturday morning. Instead of doing an unseasonal spring cleaning, she was preparing to uproot her family in search of a better life for her son. Scattered across the sale were worn mattresses leaning against landscaped trees, clothes dangling from the garage ceiling by plastic hangers and childrens toys in Huggies cardboard boxes. None of them will go with Cohen, 37, and her grade-school children when they move to California this December to get better health care for Cohens disabled 7-year-old son Will. Will was diagnosed with severe autism, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and other challenges at 22 months old. He is considered preverbal, meaning he can make sounds, but he cant speak. With proper treatment, Cohen said, he might be able to talk someday, but cutbacks in state funding have kept Will from getting the expensive therapy he needs. He had 10 words and lost all of them, she said, holding back tears. He never said mommy. Will starts his day like any other 7-and-ahalf-year-old: breakfast and a rerun of Madagascar 3 at an early start of 6 a.m. Rather than a sugary bowl of cereal, Will eats a blend of fruit-based Gerber baby food, gluten-free Rice Krispies, rice powder, and a mix of vitamin supplements and medicine. The meal isnt cheap it costs Cohen about $700 a month. A good day for Will means a few screams, but no tantrums. On one occasion, when he calmed down, there was a dent the size of a soccer ball in the wall. Clutching his favorite toys, a worn, green strand of yarn wrapped in masking tape and a CD, Cohen drops him off at a special needs classroom for the day. After school, Will hops on the bus with Nicole Reed, a 21-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences senior and Wills per sonal counselor at the North Central Florida YMCA. In a room bound by red, green, yellow and is a constant face in Wills day-to-day life. I spend more time with him than anyone else in my life, she said. The day they leave, its gonna be pretty sad. the swing set, swimming and yelling in small spaces to hear an echo. Sometimes, hell lash out at Reed, particularly if hes upset that something has disrupted his rigid routine. Reed said shes noticed that Wills behavior has changed lately, but shes unsure if its because Will sometimes doesnt have his iPod touch, which helps him tune out, or if its because he has access to less therapy now. I can see it in his eyes that its never malicious, she said. She calms him down and tickles him behind his knees, his most sensitive spot. A grin with missing front teeth lights across his face. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott ordered immediate budget cuts to the states Agency for Persons with Disabilities, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Cohen said that although her child should be receiving 20 to 30 hours of therapy a week, he only gets two hours of therapy at school: one for speech therapy and one with an occupational therapist. She made the decision to move to Califor nia this summer when those two hours were cut, too. Any politician who balances his budget on the backs of kids with disabilities is a disgrace to our nation, Cohen said. Cohen, who doesnt qualify for Medicaid, said her Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance only covers 20 sessions a year. In California, Cohen said there are state-, countyand school-sponsored services. nail for two hours of therapy, she said. In The Cohens began working with Cathy Zenko, coordinator for education and training programs at UFs Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, shortly after Wills diagconstituents in 14 Florida counties, has been suffering from state budget cuts since 2006. Fundraisers like the annual Stomp the Swamp were organized to subsidize lost funding. Zenko said shes seen families get into a lot of debt from borrowing money to get their childern therapy. Some stop completely. Cohen has lived in Gainesville since 1999. Raised in California, shes moving to the Los Angeles area where she has family and business connections. For me, it s going home, she said. Cohen, a full-time freelance marketing writer, took out a second mortgage on her southwest Gainesville home to pay for her sons needs. She said her credit is destroyed for divorce last month. When your kid needs something, you spend everything you have, Cohen said. I would make that choice 1,000 times over. Cohen said she would host another garage sale next month. A friend has also set up a donation website, www.giveforward.com/ helpingtara, for her move. Ive never in my life been good at accepting help, much less asking for it, Cohen said. she is setting a combined goal of $30,000 for rent because she cannot work until months after the move she must acclimate her son to his new life, new doctors and therapy sessions. We spent every last dime helping our son, she said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 Benjamin S. Brasch / Alligator StaffAl Martin, 69, is a librarian at Alachua County Tower Road Branch Library. Martin was one of the eight people chosen to receive a Carol Combs Hole Award for his work with non-native English speakers. FEA TURE JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Al Martin traveled to Mexico, he returned home to Gainesville with an award-winning idea. The 69-year-old librarian pioneered a program to help local immigrants learn English and assimilate into Gainesvilles community. He has hosted programs at the Alachua County Tower Road Branch Library for about two years. Martin was among the eight people chosen by the library district for this years Carol Combs Hole Award for his work with diversity programs. I just came back from Mexico under my hat, said the librarian of 18 years. The program won the award. I didnt. Phillis Filer, chairwoman of the selection committee, said Mar tins program was award-worthy because his idea went beyond his day-to-day job. It was how he went about bringing that program together to address a need in the community, she said. Filer said Martin was chosen because of his passion to help the community. He really, really relishes seeing people go from barely speakently, she said. Its important to recognize the fact that we have a staff member who constantly looks at ways to enhance the community. Martin said he went to Mexico two years ago for dental surgery. During his visit, Martin volunteered at the library to talk and work with people who lived there. It was an interesting cultural experience, he said. After returning home, he created the program to teach immigrants English and to help them with interviewing techniques, writing resumes and more. Martin said his program has aided people from software engineers to doctors to academic scholars. These people are visiting scholars, he said. They are trying to transition into this culture and into this language. The blue-eyed and white-haired librarian said he cannot take all of the credit for the award. There are a hell of a lot of people who contributed, he said. I feel like Im just the mouthpiece for this thing. Sidney Jones, a co-worker of Martin for 18 years, said Martins interest in learning foreign languages has allowed the program to excel. Hes put in a tremendous amount of work for several years, and it has been an extremely successful program, Jones said. Hes gotten a lot of very grateful participants who inspired him to expand the program. Jones said Martin likes to read and absorb strange things that happen in the world. He is very intelligent and has a wonderful memory that I wish I had, he said. He likes to keep us stocked with ice cream, too. For Martin, he said his joy comes from meeting interesting people. It gives you an opportunity to meet a lot of really cool people and people from other cultures, Martin said. Gainesville librarian wins award for piloting English language program

Four of the Sophomore forward Otto Porter, who averaged 9.7 points and a team-best 6.8 rebounds per game last season, is Georgetowns most dynamic talent. Were going to do the best we can to prepare for a guy like that and take him out of his comfort zone, Young said.

Amanda Butler has racked up an impressive win total in her to make a dent in the SEC. See story, page 29. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer Dan Quinn did the same thing for 10 years. He spent nearly a quarter of his life coaching NFL defensive linemen. After coaching three teams in eight seasons, Quinn landed in Seattle. He was comfortable in the Emerald City. Then, an old friend came calling. When UF coach Will Muschamp needed a defensive coordinator in January 2011, he immediately thought of Quinn. The duo had previously worked together with the Miami Dolphins for one season, but Quinn wasnt so sure he wanted to make the jump. There was (hesitation) on my end, because you have done one thing for 10 years, youre kind of settled, and I certainly enjoyed where I was at, Quinn said. I had a good time working with Pete Carroll and John Schneider, the GM, there. There was hesitancy not from coming back to college and coming here or working for Will, but I enjoyed what I was doing there, and I was happy. But, I thought the opportunity was too unique to pass up, and thats why I wanted to come. And Im glad that I did. Florida is better because of it. top 10 for three straight seasons before Quinn arrived in Gainesville, but this is a different team. A more experienced unit that has decreased its total yards allowed per game each season since 2010. may be what happens off it. Senior safety Josh Evans described Quinn as Kenny Boynton is not afraid of waves or sea monsters, appar ently. Florida is playing Georgetown on a boat tonight, and Boynton hasnt even taken the buoyant surface of the Atlantic Ocean into account? A reporter asked him if the waves would be a factor, and this guy said: I didnt even think about that. I guess were going to see how that plays out. Were going to see how that plays out? Why dont you just dive into the water with the main score from Jaws playing? Lets see how that plays out! There are countless aquatic threats UF did not even consider before agreeing to play on the water! Were talking overzealous lobsters, crotchety old sea turtles and non-Pixar sharks! Even Godzilla came out of the ocean once! Perhaps the shrimp community is fed up with the excess of humanitys cocktail parties. If every shrimp in the Jacksonville area grabs 10 friends, things could get dicey. The ocean is perilous, and we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column do not take unknown waters lightly! Good luck, Mr. Boynton. May Poseidon and oppressed shrimp everywhere have mercy on your soul! Now, onto the picks! Georgia (-15.5) will sink Auburns battleship because... The Dawgs actually have something to play for. With a win, Georgia can set sail to Atlanta and the SEC Championship Game. Auburn, meanwhile, has already capsized.

Quinn and Muschamp coached together in the NFL. After time in NFL, Quinn making impact at UF LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Florida will be without starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin in its season opener against Georgetown tonight. The team suspended the for undisclosed reasons. mation on some things, coach Billy Donovan informed Wilbekin of his suspension minutes before the team departed to the USS Bataan in Jacksonville at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday. Wilbekin did not travel with the team to Naval Station Mayport. Wilbekin did not earn the suspension because of a criminal act or NCAA violation, Donovan said. Right now, I felt like he didnt need to be here on this trip, Donovan said. None of us are immune from making mistakes and making poor choices and doing things. Sometimes, a decision a person makes doesnt necessarily say who the person is all the way around. Scottie is a good person with a good heart whos got to be responsible and accountable and committed. Hes got to grow and mature. Wilbekin was expected to begin the season as No. 10 Floridas starting point guard, taking the reins from UF all-time assists leader Erving Walker. The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin aver aged 2.5 points and 1.6 assists per contest as Floridas backup point guard the past two seasons. The loss of Wilbekin leaves the Gators with only nine scholarship players and four freshmen heading into tonights season-opening matchup at 9 p.m. against Georgetown. Florida will also be without junior forward Casey Prather. Dur ing Mondays practice, Prather suffered his second concussion in a span of nine days. Sophomore forward Cody Lar son quit the team on Oct. 26, leaving the Gators thin in the frontcourt. Senior shooting guard Kenny Boynton will run the point against the Hoyas. Boynton has played point guard sparingly during the past three seasons. Redshirt senior guard Mike Rosario and freshman point guard Braxton Ogbueze are expected to back up Boynton. Junior Will Yeguete will likely start at small forward, while Rosario or freshman Michael Frazier II will start at shooting guard, Donovan said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 27 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer When the Gators and Hoyas take the court on the deck of the USS Bataan tonight, chills will run down their spines for reasons other than patriotism. The conditions on the deck of the amphibious assault ship will present some obstacles for No. 10 Florida and Georgetown when the teams square off at 9 p.m. in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville. Tonights forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-50s with winds of 4 miles per hour, according to Weather.com. The players always use the phrase get cold on the bench when theyre sitting out, but Ill literally be cold on the bench if Im sitting out, said junior Patric Young, a Jacksonville native. The last time I played basketball outside had to be in middle school. Its going to bring back some old-school memories. The windy weather could affect the game plan for the Gators, whose strength lies in three-point shooting. Shot selection, gathering loose balls and rebounding will all be key, coach Billy Donovan said. Even in a regular situation, if we were running down and taking quick threes, I wouldnt be happy, Donovan said. We cant totally alter everything were doing because were outside. Senior Kenny Boynton believes the wind will be a major factor. If the shots arent falling, I think weve got to get to the hole, Boynton said. The numbers from the Michigan State-North Carolina game, I dont think any team shot well. We have to get fouled, get to the hole more. When North Carolina and deck of the USS Carl Vinson in the Carrier Classic on Nov. 11, 2011, in San Diego, they shot a combined 6 for 32 beyond the arc. Donovan sought advice from Spartans coach Tom Izzo about how to deal with playing outside. Michigan States situation was different, because warmer temperatures in San Diego resulted in condensation on the court during the 7 p.m. contest. Florida and Georgetown each had shootarounds on the deck of the ship Thursday to get a feel for the conditions. Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. Because of the issues that happened last year, the people involved in putting on the game are thinking about it. The key is safety. Im telling my guys its not going to affect them at all. Thats how were approaching it. Navy-Marine Corps Classic or ganizers have discussed placing heaters behind both benches, Donovan said. Also, the NCAA has approved long-sleeve shirts for both teams to wear in the game. Despite all the chatter about the weather and patriotic implications for tonights season opener, Florida and Georgetown have tuned out the distractions. No matter how hyped up the game is, you still have to go out there and play, Young said. You cant be caught up in the moment. You just have to realize its another game when we step on the court.Florida preparing to battle elementsCold conditions expectedDavid Carr / Alligator Staff The players always use the phrase get cold on the bench when theyre sitting out, but Ill literally be cold on the bench if Im sitting out.Patric YoungUF center

a mentor. After spending time at the coachs house, linebacker Jelani Jenkins said Quinn is funnier than most people realize. Hes a great person and a guy that, he and (his wife) Stacy, theyre wonderful people, Muschamp said. Hes about all the right things in college athletics. The two coaches didnt need long to adjust after they started working at Florida. Together in Miami, the duo helped the Dolphins reel off six 2005. Hes high energy and a lot of fun to play for, former Miami defensive end Jason Taylor said of Quinn. I can guarantee no one is more prepared than Dan. Hes certainly one of the best position coaches I ever played for, and Im not surprised at all by the success hes having at Florida. Quinn called Muschamp one of the best defensive coaches hes been around at any level. We all had colleagues ... you just feel like its easy to talk to or get connected with, Quinn said. Thats certainly how it is with Will. Quinns play calling has the Gators ranked No. 5 nationally in total defense and tied for sixth in interceptions. mage against South Carolina on Oct. 20, Quinn dialed up a cornerback blitz. Loucheiz Purifoy came off the edge and forced South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw to fumble. Florida generated four turnovers in a 33-point blowout in The Swamp. The Gators love playing for Quinn because his defense readies them for the NFL. Its really going to prepare not just me, but everybody who has aspirations at the next level, Jenkins said. We rally behind him. We play for him. Theres no looking back for the former NFL assistant. Hes found a new home in Gainesville.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer The Gators painful pattern of players plights will continue when they visit Missouri tonight at 7:30 p.m. A week before the season began, Florida lost sophomore Noami Santos-Lamb, the Gators only experienced outside hitter, to an ACL tear. Freshman outside hitter Jackie Swalchick has been limited to three appearances this year by a fractured left arm. Betsy Smiths right ankle is still healing two weeks after she injured it. Now, Gabby Mallette has hit the bench with an undisclosed injury. Mallette has not appeared in a match since Floridas 3-0 win against Mississippi State on Oct. 26. Wise has consistently been forced to tweak her lineup after losing a key player to injury every few weeks. Its sort of been the theme of the 2012 season, Wise said. Just when you think you got the lineup solidiWise said rather than expecting one individual to do the work, she has asked her healthy players to carry the burden as a team. ure out is, What is the depth on your bench? Wise said. When we thought at one point we would have neither Betsy nor Gabby we asked, Could [the healthy players] combine for 5.5 points to get us to just hold serve while those guys are out? Freshman Berkley Whaley startwhen Mallette missed Floridas match against Georgia. In the past two matches, the Gators have witnessed the double-edged sword that is Whaley. Against the Bulldogs, she registered a .455 hitting percentage en route to another Southeastern Conference sweep. But on Sunday, Whaley hit a team-low -.222 and committed a season-high seven errors. The 6-foot outside hitter said she can feel the extra weight on her shoulders, but added she cant give in to the pressure. Pressure is always going to be there, but thats part of the game, she said.

Embree, Floridas AllAmerica senior, kept her winning streak alive, moving to 6-0 for the fall. No. 1-seeded Embree posted a 6-3, 7-5 victory against Ole Miss Caroline Rohde-Moe. Embree improved her career record in singles to 97-13. After reaching the draw as an at-large bid, Oyen defeated Columbias Nicole Bartnik 6-3, 6-4. Collins, a freshman, continued her superb play in the fall, beating Princetons Amanda Muliawan 6-3, 6-3. She improved her collegiate singles record to 12-2. The display impressed Florida coach Roland Thornqvist, who has seen his fair share of players succeed in this tournament. We were more aggressive today than on any other doors than I can remember, Thornqvist said. But Floridas coach understands the competition is still steep.

ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Writer To coach Becky Burleigh, shes a beast and a monster. However, in her own mind, shes just Karina. Since sophomore Annie Bobbitt was sidelined by a knee sprain suffered on Oct. 19 against Alabama, fellow sophomore Karina Gutsche Gators. sumed the starting role, Florida has allowed only one goal. Weve always known that she was just such a solid defender, Burleigh said. Shes just so aggressive, and she comes in hard. People dont like to play against her.

Florida faces Florida Gulf Coast (14-3-3, 7-1-1 Atlantic Sun Confer Tournament today at 3 p.m. in James G. Pressly Stadium. Gutsche didnt play much for Florida in 2011. She only saw 45 minutes of action, all in Floridas 5-0 regular-season victory against FGCU. Florida used 30 players in the blowout. It means a lot to me, Gutsche said about getting crucial playing time this season. Its a great oppor tunity. Gutsche has made the most of her opportunity and has been on the My motto when I go onto the hind, she said. Freshman center back Christen Westphal, who was named to the All-SEC second team and the SEC All-Freshman team on Oct. 29, has been paired with Gutsche on the Despite Gutsches limited experience in a starting role, her play has impressed Westphal. Karina gets a little nervous, Westphal said. All we have to do is keep her calm, and she plays really well, as you can see. Couldnt even tell it was a different player back there, from Kat (Williamson) to Bobbitt to anyone. Nervousness was not a problem for the Gators defense during the SEC Tournament. After allowing an 81st-minute goal against Ole Miss, Florida closed out the tournament with back-toback shutouts. However, going into the NCAA Tournament, the Gators will be missing one of their key defensive Dragotta.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 We are living in exciting times. Things are different today than theyve ever been in the history of the world, and theyre changing all of the time. When I was in elementary school, to have a cellphone with a color screen was a big deal. Now, in college, its standard for phones to have Internet access and make you pancakes. Most of us live more comfortably than the kings of old did. In fact, trends show that there has been a clear increase in lifespan and income in nearly all countries over the course of the last 200 years. Think of the technology that we use every day. For the majority of human history, those things didnt exist. The printing press didnt exist until 1448. It took about 400 years after that for the telegraph to be invented. The time between the telegraph being invented and the Internet appearing in the public, however, is only about 200 years. For most of human history, we didnt even have farming. I think that as our understanding of the world increases and as our level of technology increases, we are able to develop more and more quickly. Some futurist thinkers, such as Ray Kurzweil and Vernor Vinge, observe models of accelerating growth and predict a turning point: the Singularity. What is the Singularity? but trust me, its not. It will happen in our lifetimes, and wed better be ready for it. The Singularity is the point at which were able to create computers that are more intelligent than humans, and not just one human, but all of humanity. At that point, which has been predicted to be sometime in the next 20 to 30 years, our level of technology will be astounding already. For example, Kurzweil predicts that well maintaining optimum functioning of our bodies. Googles exciting augmented reality glasses that so many of us are waiting for could very well be old news by then, too. Those are expected to be available in only a few years. So imagine what will happen when a single machine is smarter than we are. What new moral dilemmas will arise? Will we see the technology as alive? What will happen to us as our bodies move toward steel and away from carbon? Will we enter a dark posthuman future or a bright transhuman frontier? Will we be more loving and empathetic than ever, or will we lose those feelings? We cant tell. Its like humanitys discovis changing. Who could have predicted that the disof the Empire State Building? We must contemplate the implications of having such power. We cant be unprepared and just let the future hit us in the face. We have to be ready for this. Dont just laugh this off. Im sure there were people chuckling when scientists predicted that computers would beat chess champions in a game of chess. Im sure people would have laughed if you had told them about Skyrim in the days of Pong. Read up on the future. Ask yourself where youll stand on the upcoming moral dilemmas. Just as important, though, is the need for saturated in science, and we cant have the sions. Remember when Ted Stevens said that the Internet was a series of tubes? Hilarious. Were coming to a point when such ignorance will have dire consequences. We must hold ourselves and our policymakers to a higher standard if were going to survive the coming century. Will we have the knowledge and wisdom to navigate the changing landscape successfully? Sitting back isnt going to cut it. Wed better get busy reading or get busy dying.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 Benjamin S. Brasch / Alligator StaffGainesville resident Josh Thompson, 23, drinks a mug of Big Nose beer at Mars Pub and Arcade on Wednesday night. KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterAfter a tear-stricken closing night at Mars Pub and Arcade, six regulars decided they didnt want to see their favorite bar close. All of us looked around at each other, said Dave Michael, one of the new owners, and said, What can we do to turn this around? So they bought the bar, made some renovations and reopened three weeks later. Michael, 38, swept his arm across his bar, pointing at new neon lights that glinted off his wide eyes. Mars Pub and Arcade was once known for its backroom laser tag, but the previous owners did away with the laser tag earlier this year. The new owners remade the bars image, adding stages and spaces for local artwork. The team built an art gallery where local artists can display and sell their work in the room where laser tag equipment was once stored. The bar, which reopened on Oct. 11, now has a stage for bands, which is raised off the ground and equipped with a full sound system and LED light display. Michael said the bar is planning to host live performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Michael said they built a restroom backstage for bands and are adding a washer, dryer and shower soon. way to make this great for musicians, said Michael, who is a member of local band Bang Bang Boom. One of the bar managers, James Barratt, pointed out a second bar by the stage, which will only sell cans of beer. It was made by bartender Travis Martin so that everyone can have a beer during a show, Barratt said. Other improvements include a fresh coat of paint, a new food menu and chalkboard walls in the bathroom so people will have erasable spaces to write on, rather than the walls. All renovations were done in three weeks. We basically lived here, Bar ratt said. I never want to see another Hot Pocket. Still, Barratt was enthusiastic to help rebuild and reopen the place that kept his favorite beer, Becks, in the bar just for him. Its like a second living room kind of place, he said. It sucks when your living room closes down. Patrons and band members said theyre excited that Mars wont be closing for good. Ian Bernacett, guitarist of Thee Holy Ghosts, which frequents Mars, said hes stoked that the bar reopened. Its the only place in town where we can book our own shows, said Bernacett, 22. For now, employees and owners are working together to continue improvements, Michael said, adding that the bar is employee-owned and operated. Everybody has a say in how it operates, Michael said. Its all a learning process. Barratt agreed. We wanted it to be a place that takes care of the bands, takes care of the patrons, takes care of the staff, he said. We want to do things the right way.

RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents who ask the Later Gators bus drivers to turn up the temperature this winter can expect the cold shoulder. The Regional Transit System bus service that routinely transports people to and from Midtown and downtown will continue to keep its air conditioning on at 65 degrees in the colder months. In the evenings, even in the winter time, drivers will not run the heat, said Chip Skinner, RTS marketing and communications supervisor. The cold has a calming effect and psychologirelated to heavy consumption of alcohol. He said drivers normally have the air conditioning on at night because Skinner said the heating and cooling system only has two settings: on or off.

I was with my friend, and we were both just wearing tank top dresses and wedges. Skinner said RTS gets a few calls every year complaining about the temperature.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville might not get snow this holiday season, but its getting an ice rink. In two weeks, Bo Diddley Community Plaza will be transformed into a winter wonderland where The rink, dubbed Plaza Ice Palace, will open Nov. 23 and run until Jan. 6. Participants can glide from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. One hour of skating costs $10 per person and includes skate rental. If patrons bring their own skates, admission is $7. Prior to 2007, the city offered an ice rink on Bo Diddley, but it had to be slashed from the budget because it became unaffordable, said David Ballard, events coordinator for City Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. In the past, he said, companies expected the city to pay large sums up front and to operate the exhibit the whole season. The bids for the ice rink were extremely high, and the companies wanted the city to foot all the costs, was not something the city could take on. Ballard said the owner of Midwest Display, a nowFlorida-based company that offers holiday decorations, approached the city this year about ending the thaw on Gainesville ice skating. Ballard said Midwest Display offered its services as a vendor, setting up at its own expense and paying the city a portion of the proceeds at the end. The ice skating rink will be sponsored by Gainesville Regional Utilities, and electrical utility customers will receive coupon discounts at the rink, said GRU spokeswoman Kendall Litton Jensen.

MELANIE BRKICHAlligator Contributing WriterUF seniors Aidan Augustin and Neal Ormsbee found their direction in life. They just had to stop going to class to do it. The 21-year-old best friends, roommates of three years and now business partners are the co-founders of Feathr, a startup that has created a smartphone application designed to change the way people network professionally. It all started with an idea: What if the concept of the business card could be revolutionized in the form of an app? One year after that initial idea was born, Feathr has become a completely student-run company complete with its own programming team, What people currently do is use paper business cards, but no one has the time with a stack of new contacts to put in all the info, for instance after a conference, Augustin said. Automating that process and making business cards digital so they can sync to all your devices facilitates the online, social-media culture we live in. The electronic business card-like inthe user to store new contacts information all in one place. There are buttons for email, phone, Twitter, a website or online portfolio, and theyre accessible with one tap. The seed for Feathr was planted when Augustin interned in Silicon Valley, Calif., during Summer 2011. He realized while at a networking event as he and other interns tried to clumsily swap information that there was no standardized way to electronically give people his card. He remembers joking with one woman about how we are some of the smartest people with supercomputers literally in The idea was still in the back of his mind when Augustin participated in a Start-Up Weekend in Tallahassee last fall, a competition that challenges entrepreneurial college-age students to create an entire concept and business model in two days. By the end of the weekend the concept was called CardSync, which would eventually become Feathr. His idea didnt win one of the prizes, but it was selected to be among the top 10 that were judged at the end. After trying to work on the company that semester while also taking classes, Augustin realized he couldnt pursue his business model as a fully enrolled student. But everything seemed to be lining up in favor of the company. Ormsbee, a computer science major, came fully onboard to assist with the programming. They decided over winter break of 2011 that they would drop out of school the next semester and work on their company full time. We sort of had a come to Jesus moment, Augustin said. The thing was, I said to Neal, Youre going to have to become a software god. Flash forward to Fall 2012, and the Feathr team has expanded to include programmers Gabe Busto, Tasha Hankewych, Andrew Kennedy and designer Will Newton. One of the neat things about startup life is that the teams are small, and everyone onboard is there because they love and believe in what theyre doing, Ormsbee said. new UF Innovation Hub that opened last January and is not much bigger than a study room at Library West.

They certainly arent doing it for money or to build a reputation, Ormsbee said. We dont have the funds to pay anyone what their talents are really worth. In just about a year, the Feathr team has become a family, and Augustin and Ormsbee have big plans for the future. The app week. Currently, a group of 1,200 people are beta testing the app for basic user-friendliness and to detect bugs. Augustin hopes to have the app available through the iTunes App Store by the end of January. A year from now, he predicts up to 1 million people using Feathr on their phones. By then I think well have sold Feathr and be millionaires by 25, Augustin said with a smile. 12, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 Melanie Brkich / AlligatorAidan Augustin, a 21-year-old industrial engineering senior, is hard at work at the TECHNOLOGYFormer UF students launch professional networking app

ALEX KLAUSNERAlligator Contributing WriterFour months after UF President Bernie Machen announced he will step down from his post next year, nobody is sure who will replace him. On-campus interviews will start soon, and updates from search committee chairman David Brown suggest the university is getting a lot of interest from leaders at other academic institutions. Names like Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and UF Proaround as candidates for the job, but as of now, anyone can be nominated. According to the presidential search committees list of desired criteria, UFs next leader should have an academic background and credentials, including a Ph.D. or highest degree in the chosen tional and international scholar of an administrative leadership posiOne of the things often mentioned is that UF is looking for a leader at an institution belonging to the Association of American Universities. Of the 61 AAU universities in the U.S., UF is the only one in Flor ida. Whoever the university chooses, the new president is going to face challenges, particularly of the According to UF budget documents, the state has cut roughly $183 million from UFs operating budget from 2008 to 2013. UF Vice President and CFO Matt Fajack said the universitys funding for new buildings has been cut drastically. While $183 million in lost state revenue sounds like a big number, it should be put in perspective. UF has a yearly budget of $4.6 billion, 10 percent of which are state dollars. Even if the state government decides to pull its punches when it comes to university funding, theres still the federal government to worry about, said Cheri Brodeur, Faculty Senate chairwoman and a member of UFs Board of Trustees. Brodeur said the federal government is discussing cutting down on research funding. With that as a possibility, Brodeur said its going to be important for administration to do what it can to retain faculty and students. We want to avoid a brain Faculty, she said, can attract students. If key faculty leave, students could leave as well. People think theres still some But Fajack and UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes say the time for cutting is over, and the time for growth is now. In fact, because Florida took cuts early on, Sikes said, Florida might be a better position for an incoming president because he or she wouldnt have to make a series of unpopular cuts off the bat. While the position carries an enormous amount of prestige, not everyone is chomping at the bit to lead the Gator Nation. Twenty other institutions are searching for new presidents or chancellors, including Princeton University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Louisiana State University and the University of Georgia. Brown said 10 of the 20 are inter ested in candidates who are similar to those UF hopes to attract. An additional hurdle is Sunshine Law, Brodeur said. The Sunshine Law is a public records law in Florida that requires virtually all government business to be done in the public eye. With UF being a state institution, almost everything is documented as a matter of public record, including the list of those who have applied to the job. However, some sitting presidents at other research institutions wont even consider the position because of this law. The major deterrent isnt necessarily because they dont want their on-campus business done in the open, Brodeur said. Instead, its more about the types of questions they might face from their own Board of Trustees and other inter ested parties back at home if they didnt get the position. Weve got a long way to go besaid. dent the university has a lot to offer over other universities. It is, according to the U.S. News and World Report, the top-ranked public school in the state.

SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterIts hard to know why the banisters are always sticky. The wooden railings are covered with a noxious combination of substances from Gatorade to grain alcohol, a small taste of the shenanigans that happen inside the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity house many of which would give any mother a migraine. But the fraternitys chief secretkeeper isnt a special room full of guarded mysteries shes a vivacious 63-year-old West Virginian. Donna Land is one of a handful of fraternity housemothers who live with upward of 50 sometimes-drunk college-aged men. She has lived at the fraternity house for the past four years after her two children moved out of Gainesville. Lands daughter, Summer, said shes glad her mother is keeping busy and thought Lands experience working at a nursery was the best preparation for the job. They never sleep, and you never know when someone is going to vomit, Summer said. But Land loves her boys too much to make a fuss. Sometimes its loud and sometimes its late, but I really enjoy it, she said, smiling. Shes the only parent in the house, something shes familiar with after raising two children on her own. She credits her upbringing in the Southeast with helping her learn to live on her own. Its hard not to notice some of Lands Southern traits. Her soft, Apsation like the smell of magnolia in spring. The quirks stem from Lands upbringing in the small coal-mining life when she went to the Massey Business College in Atlanta, now named the Art Institute of Atlanta. She dated a Kappa Sigma up the road at Georgia Technical University and noticed an older woman around the house. Id see this old woman walking around, she said. Id ask, Why is she here? She laughed. And now its full circle. Land also found love in college and married Steve Land. The two and Donna gave birth to her son soon after. She was beginning to form a family. Everything was per fect, until one summer day. Steve went to South Carolina without Land, and he decided to go for an early morning swim. He was carried out to sea by a powerful rip current. Donna never saw her husband again but had her hands full with one young child and another on the way. There was almost no time to grieve between raising two newborns into adults, she carried the weight of two parents. My husband died in June, my son turned 2 in July and my daughter was born in August, Land said. It was just shocking. But when her children graduated from high school and went out of state for college, Land began to feel a void in her life. It was time for a change which drifted Lands way after she learned that an acquaintance got a job as Chi Phis house mom at UF. Land jumped at the next chance to apply for a housemother opening. The job seems like Lands second wind. She beams a calm serenity, twanged with an infectious love of fun. Lands main responsibilities are inspections, hosting the Game Day barbecues, putting up decorations for the annual Christmas dinner and sending invitations out for Founders Day weekend. She loves putting on these big things and meeting all the families, Lands daughter said. Her apartment doesnt have any trouble with the creaky doors and the interior of the house. She has a living room about the size of three parking spaces with a small, attached kitchen and pantry. A hallway leads to a bathroom, which leads into her bedroom. Light streams through six windows that face the courtyard of the fraternity. Some of her favorite memories with the fraternity happened on that patch of weedy pavement. One of her favorite fraternity parties is Alpha Tau Omegas Volcano, which happens once every Fall. The men build a 30to 40-foot tall volcano in the courtyard, complete with a builtin bar. I love the energy, I love the exuberance, and I love the creativity that goes into building the volcano, Land said. Its such a bonding thing, they really have a good time out there. Its so cool. She has an appreciation for rowdiness and debauchery rarely seen in a woman her age, but she refuses to tell some of her favorite stories about the fraternity. Well the best ones I wouldnt tell I used to say that they pay me for my silence, Land joked. She rarely ventures upstairs to where the men live half out of respect for their space and half out of She also enjoys the more quiet times she shares with the brothers, like eating dinner with the new brothers. Land feels a special connection with the men shes tasked with watching over. She said she would never dare to breathe a bad word about any of her boys. Oh no, Ive got my boys back all the time, she said. We support each other. Outside of the brotherhood, Land has found a sisterhood of her own. Every week, the fraternity housemothers and the sorority housemothers will get together on differ ent days to get dinner or go out on the town. They commiserate, laugh, tell stories about their kids and get a much-needed break from 20-yearolds. Though her son and daughter live across the globe, Land said she feels like loved ones always sur round her. Summer Land said shes grateful that her mother had the chance to start fresh. Its a really good thing for her, she said. With my brother in San Francisco and me in Australia, this is the perfect thing to keep her occupied all day. The brothers at Alpha Tau Omega house have a tradition that also makes Land feel more like part of a family. They all call me mom, she said. Its especially fun for me because my real children call me Donna. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@ alligator.org.

Story by COLLEEN WRIGHT Photos by Brett Le BlancFueled by coffee, Tara Cohen negotiated with garage sale shoppers rummaging for a bargain on a foggy Saturday morning. Instead of doing an unseasonal spring cleaning, she was preparing to uproot her family in search of a better life for her son. Scattered across the sale were worn mattresses leaning against landscaped trees, clothes dangling from the garage ceiling by plastic hangers and childrens toys in Huggies cardboard boxes. None of them will go with Cohen, 37, and her grade-school children when they move to California this December to get better health care for Cohens disabled 7-year-old son Will. Will was diagnosed with severe autism, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and other challenges at 22 months old. He is considered preverbal, meaning he can make sounds, but he cant speak. With proper treatment, Cohen said, he might be able to talk someday, but cutbacks in state funding have kept Will from getting the expensive therapy he needs. He had 10 words and lost all of them, she said, holding back tears. He never said mommy. Will starts his day like any other 7-and-ahalf-year-old: breakfast and a rerun of Madagascar 3 at an early start of 6 a.m. Rather than a sugary bowl of cereal, Will eats a blend of fruit-based Gerber baby food, gluten-free Rice Krispies, rice powder, and a mix of vitamin supplements and medicine. The meal isnt cheap it costs Cohen about $700 a month. A good day for Will means a few screams, but no tantrums. On one occasion, when he calmed down, there was a dent the size of a soccer ball in the wall. Clutching his favorite toys, a worn, green strand of yarn wrapped in masking tape and a CD, Cohen drops him off at a special needs classroom for the day. After school, Will hops on the bus with Nicole Reed, a 21-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences senior and Wills per sonal counselor at the North Central Florida YMCA. In a room bound by red, green, yellow and is a constant face in Wills day-to-day life. I spend more time with him than anyone else in my life, she said. The day they leave, its gonna be pretty sad. the swing set, swimming and yelling in small spaces to hear an echo. Sometimes, hell lash out at Reed, particularly if hes upset that something has disrupted his rigid routine. Reed said shes noticed that Wills behavior has changed lately, but shes unsure if its because Will sometimes doesnt have his iPod touch, which helps him tune out, or if its because he has access to less therapy now. I can see it in his eyes that its never malicious, she said. She calms him down and tickles him behind his knees, his most sensitive spot. A grin with missing front teeth lights across his face. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott ordered immediate budget cuts to the states Agency for Persons with Disabilities, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Cohen said that although her child should be receiving 20 to 30 hours of therapy a week, he only gets two hours of therapy at school: one for speech therapy and one with an occupational therapist. She made the decision to move to Califor nia this summer when those two hours were cut, too. Any politician who balances his budget on the backs of kids with disabilities is a disgrace to our nation, Cohen said. Cohen, who doesnt qualify for Medicaid, said her Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance only covers 20 sessions a year. In California, Cohen said there are state-, countyand school-sponsored services. nail for two hours of therapy, she said. In The Cohens began working with Cathy Zenko, coordinator for education and training programs at UFs Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, shortly after Wills diagconstituents in 14 Florida counties, has been suffering from state budget cuts since 2006. Fundraisers like the annual Stomp the Swamp were organized to subsidize lost funding. Zenko said shes seen families get into a lot of debt from borrowing money to get their childern therapy. Some stop completely. Cohen has lived in Gainesville since 1999. Raised in California, shes moving to the Los Angeles area where she has family and business connections. For me, it s going home, she said. Cohen, a full-time freelance marketing writer, took out a second mortgage on her southwest Gainesville home to pay for her sons needs. She said her credit is destroyed for divorce last month. When your kid needs something, you spend everything you have, Cohen said. I would make that choice 1,000 times over. Cohen said she would host another garage sale next month. A friend has also set up a donation website, www.giveforward.com/ helpingtara, for her move. Ive never in my life been good at accepting help, much less asking for it, Cohen said. she is setting a combined goal of $30,000 for rent because she cannot work until months after the move she must acclimate her son to his new life, new doctors and therapy sessions. We spent every last dime helping our son, she said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 Benjamin S. Brasch / Alligator StaffAl Martin, 69, is a librarian at Alachua County Tower Road Branch Library. Martin was one of the eight people chosen to receive a Carol Combs Hole Award for his work with non-native English speakers. FEaA TURE JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Al Martin traveled to Mexico, he returned home to Gainesville with an award-winning idea. The 69-year-old librarian pioneered a program to help local immigrants learn English and assimilate into Gainesvilles community. He has hosted programs at the Alachua County Tower Road Branch Library for about two years. Martin was among the eight people chosen by the library district for this years Carol Combs Hole Award for his work with diversity programs. I just came back from Mexico under my hat, said the librarian of 18 years. The program won the award. I didnt. Phillis Filer, chairwoman of the selection committee, said Mar tins program was award-worthy because his idea went beyond his day-to-day job. It was how he went about bringing that program together to address a need in the community, she said. Filer said Martin was chosen because of his passion to help the community. He really, really relishes seeing people go from barely speakently, she said. Its important to recognize the fact that we have a staff member who constantly looks at ways to enhance the community. Martin said he went to Mexico two years ago for dental surgery. During his visit, Martin volunteered at the library to talk and work with people who lived there. It was an interesting cultural experience, he said. After returning home, he created the program to teach immigrants English and to help them with interviewing techniques, writing resumes and more. Martin said his program has aided people from software engineers to doctors to academic scholars. These people are visiting scholars, he said. They are trying to transition into this culture and into this language. The blue-eyed and white-haired librarian said he cannot take all of the credit for the award. There are a hell of a lot of people who contributed, he said. I feel like Im just the mouthpiece for this thing. Sidney Jones, a co-worker of Martin for 18 years, said Martins interest in learning foreign languages has allowed the program to excel. Hes put in a tremendous amount of work for several years, and it has been an extremely successful program, Jones said. Hes gotten a lot of very grateful participants who inspired him to expand the program. Jones said Martin likes to read and absorb strange things that happen in the world. He is very intelligent and has a wonderful memory that I wish I had, he said. He likes to keep us stocked with ice cream, too. For Martin, he said his joy comes from meeting interesting people. It gives you an opportunity to meet a lot of really cool people and people from other cultures, Martin said. Gainesville librarian wins award for piloting English language program

Amanda Butler has racked up an impressive win total in her to make a dent in the SEC. See story, page 29. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer Dan Quinn did the same thing for 10 years. He spent nearly a quarter of his life coaching NFL defensive linemen. After coaching three teams in eight seasons, Quinn landed in Seattle. He was comfortable in the Emerald City. Then, an old friend came calling. When UF coach Will Muschamp needed a defensive coordinator in January 2011, he immediately thought of Quinn. The duo had previously worked together with the Miami Dolphins for one season, but Quinn wasnt so sure he wanted to make the jump. There was (hesitation) on my end, because you have done one thing for 10 years, youre kind of settled, and I certainly enjoyed where I was at, Quinn said. I had a good time working with Pete Carroll and John Schneider, the GM, there. There was hesitancy not from coming back to college and coming here or working for Will, but I enjoyed what I was doing there, and I was happy. But, I thought the opportunity was too unique to pass up, and thats why I wanted to come. And Im glad that I did. Florida is better because of it. top 10 for three straight seasons before Quinn arrived in Gainesville, but this is a different team. A more experienced unit that has decreased its total yards allowed per game each season since 2010. may be what happens off it. Senior safety Josh Evans described Quinn as Kenny Boynton is not afraid of waves or sea monsters, appar ently. Florida is playing Georgetown on a boat tonight, and Boynton hasnt even taken the buoyant surface of the Atlantic Ocean into account? A reporter asked him if the waves would be a factor, and this guy said: I didnt even think about that. I guess were going to see how that plays out. Were going to see how that plays out? Why dont you just dive into the water with the main score from Jaws playing? Lets see how that plays out! There are countless aquatic threats UF did not even consider before agreeing to play on the water! Were talking overzealous lobsters, crotchety old sea turtles and non-Pixar sharks! Even Godzilla came out of the ocean once! Perhaps the shrimp community is fed up with the excess of humanitys cocktail parties. If every shrimp in the Jacksonville area grabs 10 friends, things could get dicey. The ocean is perilous, and we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column do not take unknown waters lightly! Good luck, Mr. Boynton. May Poseidon and oppressed shrimp everywhere have mercy on your soul! Now, onto the picks! Georgia (-15.5) will sink Auburns battleship because... The Dawgs actually have something to play for. With a win, Georgia can set sail to Atlanta and the SEC Championship Game. Auburn, meanwhile, has already capsized.

Quinn and Muschamp coached together in the NFL. After time in NFL, Quinn making impact at UF LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Florida will be without starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin in its season opener against Georgetown tonight. The team suspended the for undisclosed reasons. mation on some things, coach Billy Donovan informed Wilbekin of his suspension minutes before the team departed to the USS Bataan in Jacksonville at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday. Wilbekin did not travel with the team to Naval Station Mayport. Wilbekin did not earn the suspension because of a criminal act or NCAA violation, Donovan said. Right now, I felt like he didnt need to be here on this trip, Donovan said. None of us are immune from making mistakes and making poor choices and doing things. Sometimes, a decision a person makes doesnt necessarily say who the person is all the way around. Scottie is a good person with a good heart whos got to be responsible and accountable and committed. Hes got to grow and mature. Wilbekin was expected to begin the season as No. 10 Floridas starting point guard, taking the reins from UF all-time assists leader Erving Walker. The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin aver aged 2.5 points and 1.6 assists per contest as Floridas backup point guard the past two seasons. The loss of Wilbekin leaves the Gators with only nine scholarship players and four freshmen heading into tonights season-opening matchup at 9 p.m. against Georgetown. Florida will also be without junior forward Casey Prather. Dur ing Mondays practice, Prather suffered his second concussion in a span of nine days. Sophomore forward Cody Lar son quit the team on Oct. 26, leaving the Gators thin in the frontcourt. Senior shooting guard Kenny Boynton will run the point against the Hoyas. Boynton has played point guard sparingly during the past three seasons. Redshirt senior guard Mike Rosario and freshman point guard Braxton Ogbueze are expected to back up Boynton. Junior Will Yeguete will likely start at small forward, while Rosario or freshman Michael Frazier II will start at shooting guard, Donovan said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 27 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer When the Gators and Hoyas take the court on the deck of the USS Bataan tonight, chills will run down their spines for reasons other than patriotism. The conditions on the deck of the amphibious  assault ship will present some obstacles for No. 10 Florida and Georgetown when the teams square off at 9 p.m. in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville. Tonights forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-50s with winds of 4 miles per hour, according to Weather.com. The players always use the phrase get cold on the bench when theyre sitting out, but Ill literally be cold on the bench if Im sitting out, said junior Patric Young, a Jacksonville native. The last time I played basketball outside had to be in middle school. Its going to bring back some old-school memories. The windy weather could affect the game plan for the Gators, whose strength lies in three-point shooting. Shot selection, gathering loose balls and rebounding will all be key, coach Billy Donovan said. Even in a regular situation, if we were running down and taking quick threes, I wouldnt be happy, Donovan said. We cant totally alter everything were doing because were outside. Senior Kenny Boynton believes the wind will be a major factor. If the shots arent falling, I think weve got to get to the hole, Boynton said. The numbers from the Michigan State-North Carolina game, I dont think any team shot well. We have to get fouled, get to the hole more. When North Carolina and deck of the USS Carl Vinson in the Carrier Classic on Nov. 11, 2011, in San Diego, they shot a combined 6 for 32 beyond the arc. Donovan sought advice from Spartans coach Tom Izzo  about how to deal with playing outside. Michigan States situation was different, because warmer temperatures in San Diego resulted in condensation on the court during the 7 p.m. contest. Florida and Georgetown each had shootarounds on the deck of the ship Thursday to get a feel for the conditions. Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. Because of the issues that happened last year, the people involved in putting on the game are thinking about it. The key is safety. Im telling my guys its not going to affect them at all. Thats how were approaching it. Navy-Marine Corps Classic or ganizers have discussed placing heaters behind both benches, Donovan said. Also, the NCAA has approved long-sleeve shirts for both teams to wear in the game. Despite all the chatter about the weather and patriotic implications for tonights season opener, Florida and Georgetown have tuned out the distractions. No matter how hyped up the game is, you still have to go out there and play, Young said. You cant be caught up in the moment. You just have to realize its another game when we step on the court.Florida preparing to battle elementsCold conditions expectedDavid Carr / Alligator Staff The players always use the phrase get cold on the bench when theyre sitting out, but Ill literally be cold on the bench if Im sitting out.Patric YoungUF center

a mentor. After spending time at the coachs house, linebacker Jelani Jenkins said Quinn is funnier than most people realize. Hes a great person and a guy that, he and (his wife) Stacy, theyre wonderful people, Muschamp said. Hes about all the right things in college athletics. The two coaches didnt need long to adjust after they started working at Florida. Together in Miami, the duo helped the Dolphins reel off six 2005. Hes high energy and a lot of fun to play for, former Miami defensive end Jason Taylor said of Quinn. I can guarantee no one is more prepared than Dan. Hes certainly one of the best position coaches I ever played for, and Im not surprised at all by the success hes having at Florida. Quinn called Muschamp one of the best defensive coaches hes been around at any level. We all had colleagues ... you just feel like its easy to talk to or get connected with, Quinn said. Thats certainly how it is with Will. Quinns play calling has the Gators ranked No. 5 nationally in total defense and tied for sixth in interceptions. mage against South Carolina on Oct. 20, Quinn dialed up a cornerback blitz. Loucheiz Purifoy came off the edge and forced South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw to fumble. Florida generated four turnovers in a 33-point blowout in The Swamp. The Gators love playing for Quinn because his defense readies them for the NFL. Its really going to prepare not just me, but everybody who has aspirations at the next level, Jenkins said. We rally behind him. We play for him. Theres no looking back for the former NFL assistant. Hes found a new home in Gainesville.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer The Gators painful pattern of players plights will continue when they visit Missouri tonight at 7:30 p.m. A week before the season began, Florida lost sophomore Noami Santos-Lamb, the Gators only experienced outside hitter, to an ACL tear. Freshman outside hitter Jackie Swalchick has been limited to three appearances this year by a fractured left arm. Betsy Smiths right ankle is still healing two weeks after she injured it. Now, Gabby Mallette has hit the bench with an undisclosed injury. Mallette has not appeared in a match since Floridas 3-0 win against Mississippi State on Oct. 26. Wise has consistently been forced to tweak her lineup after losing a key player to injury every few weeks. Its sort of been the theme of the 2012 season, Wise said. Just when you think you got the lineup solidiWise said rather than expecting one individual to do the work, she has asked her healthy players to carry the burden as a team. ure out is, What is the depth on your bench? Wise said. When we thought at one point we would have neither Betsy nor Gabby we asked, Could [the healthy players] combine for 5.5 points to get us to just hold serve while those guys are out? Freshman Berkley Whaley startwhen Mallette missed Floridas match against Georgia. In the past two matches, the Gators have witnessed the double-edged sword that is Whaley. Against the Bulldogs, she registered a .455 hitting percentage en route to another Southeastern Conference sweep. But on Sunday, Whaley hit a team-low -.222 and committed a season-high seven errors. The 6-foot outside hitter said she can feel the extra weight on her shoulders, but added she cant give in to the pressure. Pressure is always going to be there, but thats part of the game, she said.

Senior Lauren Emfreshman Danielle Collins all high expectations, and they all responded well Thursday afternoon. Each member of the trio won in straight sets, advancing to the round of 16 with ease. Embree, Floridas AllAmerica senior, kept her winning streak alive, moving to 6-0 for the fall. No. 1-seeded Embree posted a 6-3, 7-5 victory against Ole Miss Caroline Rohde-Moe. Embree improved her career record in singles to 97-13. After reaching the draw as an at-large bid, Oyen defeated Columbias Nicole Bartnik 6-3, 6-4. Collins, a freshman, continued her superb play in the fall, beating Princetons Amanda Muliawan 6-3, 6-3. She improved her collegiate singles record to 12-2. The display impressed Florida coach Roland Thornqvist, who has seen his fair share of players succeed in this tournament. We were more aggressive today than on any other doors than I can remember, Thornqvist  said. But Floridas coach understands the competition is still steep. Embree is up against of Cal, Oyen is up against Stanfords Krista Hardebeck face Tennessees 18th-ranked Brynn Boren.
