JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Florida fans may be bored with Louisiana and Jacksonville State coming to town, but dont expect athletics director Jeremy Foley to apologize for the Gators mid-November lull. Consecutive games against the Ragin Cajuns and the Gamecocks are welcomed. Playing the little guys keeps the lights on. Foley is just happy the schedule is full. Since the NCAA added a 12th game to the schedule prior to the 2006 season, Foley said en challenging. you, Foley said. Everybody is scrambling to get opponents. Every team ranked in the top 10 of the BCS standings has played at least two non-BCS opponents this season. The Gators also need to schedule opponents who will play in The Swamp. While Southeastern Conference schools Georgia and Alabama have recently played home-and-home series with Arizona State and Penn State, Florida needs the dollars from home games. According to UFs 2011-12 athletic budget, the Gators made $2.3 million per home football game last year. Football, which supports Floridas other 20 sports, accounted for 65 percent of the UAAs revenue last season. Next season, the Gators will host fewer than seven home games in a single season for the on Sept. 7, 2013, as part of a home-and-home series. The Gators defeated the Hurricanes 26-3 in The Swamp in 2008. When youre taking a game off campus, its costing you money, Foley said. Weve been setting aside money in our budget since 2008 to make up for the loss were going to have next year by not having seven home football games. If you did that every year, youd drastically affect the ability to run this program. made a habit of playing competitive openers since arriving in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in 2007. In six seasons under Saban, the Crimson Tide has faced a top-10 team in three season openers and Its good for our fans to have a national game that they can look forward to, Saban said. It helps our team develop in the offseason as well as in fall camp, having a challenge like that early on. I do think it has prepared us for a lot of the tough games in our league. The Swamp was drying up. As Louisianas Blake Comminie scampered into the end zone after scooping up a blocked the third time in less than a year, Florida trailed a non-BCS opponent at home. thought to myself, Were going to lose this the best of me. After entering the game as a 26.5-point favorite, Floridas 49-game winning streak against non-BCS foes was in jeopardy. UFs last State in 1988. In 18 games against non-BCS foes since the 12th game was added in 2006, Florida has outscored its overmatched opposition by more than 38 points per contest. The Gators eclipsed the 50-point mark in eight of those games. The only way the fans can vote is by not showing up, by being apathetic about it, ESPN College GameDay host Chris Fowler said. You see that in a lot of places. (There are) a lot more empty seats than youre used to seeing from some big teams, because the matchups just dont warrant it. Win or lose, Louisiana helped Florida extend against a non-BCS opponent. Prior to 2011, UF had notched 137 consecutive home sellouts, which at the time was the fourth-longest active streak. Attendance for the Gators win against the Ragin Cajuns was listed as 86,482. But when Loucheiz Purifoy blocked a fourth-quarter punt and Jelani Jenkins returned it 36 yards for the game-winning touchdown, not even 60,000 fans were around to cheer. Few cared about a game in which UF had little to gain and much to lose. Scheduling games that are exciting for the players and the fans is important, Fowler said. Youve got some very soft scheduling that is anti-college football. The last time the Gators opened the season with a non-conference BCS opponent was 1990 Florida defeated Oklahoma State 50-7, starting the Gators current 23-game winning streak in openers. Twenty-one of those victories came against non-BCS foes. When UF leaves Gainesville for a non-conference game, the trips are usually short. Excluding a visit to Tallahassee every other year to face Florida State, Floridas last two nonCoral Gables in 2003 and Syracuse in Syracuse, N.Y., in 1991. When asked why the Gators had not left the Sunshine State for a non-conference game since his second season in Gainesville, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier was frank. Because Florida doesnt have to, he said. [Florida has] plenty of tough competition The Gators boast one of the toughest schedules in the nation this season with games against half of the top-10 teams in the BCS standings. Florida is 3-1 with a matchup against BCS No. 10 Florida State looming on Nov. 24. You look at our schedule and what weve accomplished this year. Weve had a hell of a year. Floridas 27-20 win against Louisiana meant the world to the Ragin Cajuns. Already eliminated from Sun Belt Conference title contention, Louisiana needed something to play for. dent and composed. I know everyone in the locker room feels bad, but we also know we should have won this game, Louisiana wide receiver Harry Peoples said. The next game and the next game and the next game and the next game, we are going to show that we should have won. Peoples tallied 73 yards on 10 catches against Florida, marking the most receptions by an opposing wideout this season. After reviewing the We should have beat them, (by) at least two touchdowns maybe, Peoples said on higher. feeling. As the head coach of Arkansas State in 2011, Freeze consistently emphasized to his against top-notch BCS schools. We used it as a platform to show that we were competitive, Freeze said. Freeze saw a change in Arkansas State after a 26-7 loss to eventual Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division champion Virginia Tech last season. Following their loss to the Hokies, the Red Wolves won nine straight games to clinch the Sun Belt Conference championship and earn a bid to the GoDaddy.com Bowl. A lot of it has to do with the leadership of your team, Freeze said. If the leadership of your team says, Hey, this shows what we can do, and lets get into conference play and do something special. We were fortunate to have that kind of leadership. BCS opponents aid the visiting school. According to a UF spokesperson, Florida paid Bowling Green $1.25 million, Louisiana earned $1 million and Jacksonville State will receive $500,000 for Saturdays game. The Ragin Cajuns check from the Gators is worth 8 percent of Louisianas $12.5 million athletic budget, which includes $5.1 million in state funds. Honestly, its a win-win situation, Foley said. Fans dont all see that. But the money we pay them very much helps them run their athletic programs. We have to have coach in 2011, one of the philosophies he has stressed is that every opponent on the schedule is a nameless, faceless team. 22 of playing Georgia. Thats why its the most important game. His attitude remained unchanged leading up to last Saturdays win against Louisiana. Nov. 5. On Tuesday, offensive coordinator Brent Its our same approach every week. You go out, and you got a standard you want to play to. Despite the same preparation week after week, the Gators manhandled LSU but went down to the wire against the Ragin Cajuns. In Floridas past three games against nonBCS opponents, the Gators have trailed. They have started slow and relied on late surges to avoid upsets. In more than 20 years as a collegiate coach, Spurrier has avoided upsets against non-BCS foes. Even Spurrier, known for his brutal honesty when discussing opposing teams, said he approaches each opponent similarly. You only have 12-13 [games], sometimes 14, he said. Theres no excuse if youre not ready to play. Foley understands fans frustrations when Florida plays sub-par competition. He said his goal is to have the Gators play as many entertaining games as possible. is simply implausible with a 12-game schedule. Not when UF needs to stay at home to keep the Besides, Foley does not think the Florida faithful mind the extra victories too much. Every fan we have, I think, has the same goal, Foley said. One is to get to Atlanta and another one is to try to get to the last football game of the year. Scheduling is a big part of that conversation. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterPedro Bravo will face additional charges in the Christian Aguilar murder case after an Alachua County grand jury met Thursday. The grand jury indicted which suggests he may have drugged and suffocated Aguilar, an 18-year-old UF freshdegree murder and kidnapping indictment he received Oct. 8, according to court records from the Alachua County Clerk of the Court. Bravo was charged with poisoning food and/or water with the intent to kill or injure false police report and illegally moving human remains. The grand jury also charged Bravo with tampering with physical evidence when he tried to hide duct tape, a shovel and Aguilars personal belongings as well as attempting to bury the body, according to the court records. Aguilar and Bravo were former classmates who graduated from Doral Academy Preparatory School together before coming up to Gainesville to attend college. While Aguilar studied biomedical engineering at UF, Bravo went to Santa Fe College, where he was enrolled in two classes, said one of Bravos roommates in an interview. On Sept. 20, Aguilar was last seen with Bravo walking into a southwest Gainesville Best Buy, where Aguilar planned to Alligator archives. The next day, Aguilar was reported missing to University Police. In an interview with Gainesville Police, Bravo told detectives he beat Aguilar and left him in a northwest Gainesville parking lot. On Sept. 24, police arrested Bravo on a charge of depriving a victim of medical care and booked him into the Alachua as of Thursday night. For the next month, Aguilars family, along with Gainesville and Miami residents, teamed up with police to search for Christian Aguilar, combing through woods and swamps across the area. During the investigation, police said they found blood inside Bravos 2004 Chevy Trailblazer, Aguilars backpack in Bravos closet, and a receipt that showed Bravo purchased a roll of duct tape and shovel four Jury adds five new charges to Aguilar caseADMINISTRATION JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff WriterUF students, faculty and staff could get a four-day weekend again for Homecoming.

Many UF students stopped by for photo ops and cheeky comments, but some could end up as Hotdoggers, the name for the group of 12 recent college graduates who drive the Wienermobile full time around the country to promote Oscar Mayer. Hotdoggers Eliot Pattee and Anggela C. Pimentel Warstonh, who go by the aliases of Deli Eliot and Anggie Dog, said although the recruitment process begins in February, theyre trying to raise awareness on campus for the job. They love the Wienermobile, and by extension, they love us, said 25year-old Warstonh. Warstonh said the 24-foot-long Wienermobile, which has a Chevy Chassis base, is easy to drive. Hotdoggers have two weeks of training at Hot Dog High in Madison, Wis., to learn to drive the vehicle. Pattee and Warstonh cover the southeast U.S. They said Oscar Mayer recruits heavily from 10 different campuses, including UF and Florida International University. Weve been as north as D.C., as west as Nashville and as south as Miami, Pattee, 22, said.

The shop aims to provide a space where people can get all of the materials they need to feel beautiful, Trotter said. ULTA primarily sells makeup, skin care products and hair products. While the store is near the Oaks Mall, it isnt inside the mall. We like to stay out of malls because our business model is about convenience, he said.

Gators!Labor rights should be valued and protectedThe constitution of the International Labour Organization declares universal and lasting peace can be established only if it is based upon social justice. In other words, our society can progress only when we push for equality, human rights, opportunity and sustainability. Considering most of us spend at least one-third of our lives at work, it only makes sense that we as a society should regard safety and health in the workplace as a basic human right to be unconditionally supported and protected. This support and protection is maintained by labor unions, who collectively bargain with employers on behalf of employees for better workplace conditions, fair wages, health comfortable and productive in an environment that upholds human dignity. During the Progressive Era at the turn of the 20th century, unions like the American Federation of Labor pushed for broad reform in the workplace, particularly by preventing the courts from intervening in labor disputes through injunctions and yellow-dog contracts, which stipulate that employees cannot unionize. Since then, weve had the Progressive Movement and labor unions to thank for Social Security, employer-based health insurance, workplace safety regulations, child labor laws, sick leave, minimum wage, eight-hour work days, 40-hour work weeks, lunch breaks, weekends off, the right to strike, overtime pay, unemployment insurance, sexual harassment laws, workers compensation, the Family and Medical Leave protections that nowadays are basic and expected. On Wednesday, President Obama met with the heads of the nations most prominent labor unions and liberal think trous combination of sharp spending cuts and tax increases, which most economists claim will trigger another recession if not taken care of by the end of the year. After the meeting, labor leaders assured the press that President Obama is publicans that includes an increase in tax rates for top earners. According to Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, We are very, very committed to making sure that the middle class and workers dont end up paying the tab for a party that we didnt get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. Allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire for the richest 2 percent of households earning more than $250,000 establishes progressivity in our tax code, which is necessary to stimulate ecoreduce income inequality. In turn, resources are freed up to ensure we can afford tax cuts for the middle class and vital investments in education, infrastructure development, research, health care, clean energy and other public services. You dont necessarily need to look to history to see how important workers rights are. If you saw the mob of people marching down University Avenue on Tuesday afternoon, or read the front page of yesterdays Alligator, then youre aware of the rally Graduate Assistants United held to protest increasing GA fees and call for a minimum wage increase, health insurance, family/medical leave and child care. As a graduate teaching assistant in the Warrington College of Business Administration, I am a proud member of GAU. Also, I participated in both the march and the bargaining meeting, during which many GAs delivered moving testimonials about their daily struggles balancing graduate school, work, teaching, research and families on what is, in some cases, wages below poverty level. Since graduate assistants are responsible for more than half of all teaching and research at the university, GAU and its supporters believe they should be guaranteed fair wages and stipends, relief from fees and basic insurance coverage. This is social justice. If we want to expect a workplace that is fair, healthy, productive and safe, we need to value labor rights as human rights. Support unions!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 A movement started. There are petitions to the White House from people of more than 30 states asking for peaceful secession from the United States of America to form a NEW government. These petitions, starting with a petition for Louisianas secession from the Union, are not endorsed by the governments of their respective states. They are written by citizens through the White House website. quotes from the Declaration of Independence and patriots such as Benjamin Franklin. All of these petitions seem to say the same thing: We, the people, want freedom. This may sound good to many, but I would ask you to consider the possibility that there exists a better system of government. Consider this: On Tuesday, one brave citizen called for truly radical change. There is now a petition to make comedian Duncan Trussell the emperor of Earth. The petition appeals to the Obama administration to construct an iron throne made of meteorites and other less-than-savory items upon which the emperor can hold dominion over the planet. Just kidding. But this just goes to show what it takes to place a petition on the White House website. The petition area of the website is headlined We the People: Your Voice in Our Government, and just about any citizen can put anything they want up for petition. I encourage readers to read the secession petitions. Many of them are rife with grammatical errors. I surely have my problems with the evergrowing federal government, but if this is the face of what is to replace it, then I wont sign. I would also sincerely like to know where all of these people were when the younger strong suspicion, given the high percentage of petitions on behalf of red states, that these people are only calling for secession now because Obama won the election. Nearly all of the domestic issues handled on the federal level that one could complain about were started under Bush, I would argue. Why didnt they petition when he was Also, I am surprised that some of these petitions complain only of domestic policies. citizens without trial are worthy of protest, but isnt foreign policy equally worthy of To be very concerned with foreign policy isnt nitpicky, as Ive been told it is. Looking at our defense budget alone, we spend more than any country in the world by far. Since 9/11, we have spent trillions of dollars on wars. If one is concerned with the national debt, as some of these petitioners are, I would think that foreign policy would be very important. More than for money, though, perhaps there are good moral reasons to take foreign policy into great consideration. Since we invaded Iraq, there have been more than 100,000 deaths, mostly civilians. Just imagine that for a little. If it helps, imagine the faces of your own countrymen, people you know right here. Now imagine the hundreds of innocent noncombatants who died in Pakistan from drone strikes. Imagine the little girl crouched over the bloody corpse of her mother. Imagine the weeping father picking up the limp body of his dying son. How could anyone think that to consider Are these petitioners the same people who were beating the war drum before we people who are already beating the war These petitions seem less than desirable for many reasons. I would encourage those who want to make a change for the better to read up on the histories of the issues and to take a course in English grammar. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterTo question the theory of what normal looks like, students gathered on the Plaza of the Americas to do something most students enjoy: dancing. About 40 UF students and Gainesville residents participated in the Queer Sadie Hawkins Dance on Thursday afternoon, put on by OwnUp, a developing LGBTQ-straight alliance student organization. Students danced in front of the Whisper ing Close statue, which displays a heterosexual couple dancing. The goal was not to protest the statue, said OwnUp Co-Founder Eleni Angelopoulos. It was to raise awareness about heteronormativity, a cultural bias that portrays heterosexuality as normal and homosexuality as abnormal. Theres no representation of homosexual couples on campus, she said, gesturing to the sculpture. OwnUp aims to start a conversation about LGBTQ community representation at UF, Angelopoulos said. Were bringing awareness to ask questions so people know what heteronor mativity is, act now and make an all-inclusive campus, she said. The crowd started moving as a remix of Florence and the Machines Shake It Out blared from a stereo. People danced with their dates, whom they asked on the Facebook events wall, and a nearby display board asked, What is normal? Participants wrote answers to the question: An evolution in societal thinking. Queer sex. Love. OwnUp co-founder and English junior Patrick Runfeldt, 20, emphasized the dance was an image event, which aims to get people looking and to communicate the motive. Students walking by stopped to see what was going on, took pictures with their phones and even joined in the dancing. Brittany Bruce, another OwnUp founding member, said she was excited to see students taking notice. Hopefully, it gets on Facebook or Instagram and goes viral, the 22-year-old business senior said. After the music stopped, people talked, hugged and took pictures. Angelopoulos smiled and fanned herself despite the damp cold that clung to campus. The point of this event was to start discussion, the 21-year-old English senior said, and I think were doing that right now.

HE IS SEEKING $15,000 IN DAMAGES. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Writer he had been shot. Now, almost four months after a hollow-point bullet pierced his apartment wall and hit him in the leg, the 21-year-old economics junior is taking action. suit against the security guard whose gun discharged the bullet that hit him as he was sleeping in his 2nd Avenue Centre apartment in July. Joyce is seeking about $15,000 in damages from Jimmy L. Dixon, the security guard; One Global Security, Dixons security company; and American Campus Communities Services, which owns the apartment complex and hired Dixon. On the night of the incident, Joyce woke up with a pain in his leg, Daniel Vazquez, Joyces attorney, said Thursday. Joyce went to wash off the wound. When he returned, he noticed a small hole in his wall he described like a rat had chewed through the wall. Thirty minutes later, Vazquez said, Dixon knocked on Joyces door, saying he heard a noise and wanted to make sure everything was all right. Vazquez is accusing Dixon of never admitting to Joyce that the bullet came from his gun. He was very evasive about what happened, Vazquez said. The next day, Joyce went tors found metal shrapnel in his thigh. He then went to Shands at UF, where surgeons told him they could not remove the pieces, Vazquez said. The risk of taking out the fragments, because of the close proximity to vital arteries in the leg, was too high, he said. He could bleed out during the sur gery.

Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.orgUF student, shot in leg FOOTBALL BROCK SENGAlligator Contributing WriterBetween the heat, early wake-up times and lack of time to tailgate, Joe Stubits said he hates when the Gators kick off at noon. Noon games cause tailgaters to start earlier, require workers to arrive at the stadium sooner and force fans to attend the games during the hottest part of the day. Stubits, a 20-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering junior, said he is less likely to attend a game at noon than a later game. Daniel Apple, assistant communications director of the UF Athletic Association, said the games kickoff times are set by CBS and ESPN, who hold exclusive rights to Southeastern Conference games. CBS holds exclusive rights to 3:30 p.m. kickoffs for the SEC Game of the Week. CBS also holds an exclusive window from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., where no other network can broadcast an SEC game. The attendance numbers listed on gatorzone.com show no correlation between attendance and kickoff times. ESPN gets the night kickoffs for SEC games after CBS gets their choice of the game of the week. ESPN also gives an option to schools for a pay-per-view game of their choice. There have already been three noon games this season. With Saturdays pay-per-view game against Jacksonville State set for 1 p.m., the UF football team will not have a night game this season. And that doesnt bother Desheba Rutledge. Rutledge, a concession stand worker at Ben Hill she gets to go home earlier. She said she believes more students than normal ask for free cups of ice during noon games. Ice or no ice, Stubits is not pleased. I was very angry when I looked at the times and was like, Wow, 12:30, awesome! he said. This sucks. Im going to die of heat. Stubits said he likes sleeping in, especially on Satur days, but noon games dont allow for that. I just kinda go, Oh crap, throw some clothes on, brush my teeth and run over to the game, he said. Preparation is very lacking.The student rally was not meant to be Israel versus PalestineAbove heads, signs read NO to HAMAS, YES to PEACE and Pro Peace. The crowd sang Jewish prayers and chanted, Its great to be a Jewish Gator. Across the plaza, a smaller group brana Democratic Society lead organizer Skye Schmelzer, a 20-year-old history junior, said they were there to counter-protest in support of Palestine. Kahn said the event was not meant to be Israel versus Palestine. We are on the same side, he said. I am scared not only for the people of Israel but for the Palestinian people. Shajar Epsztein, a 24-year-old law student, came to attend UF from Israel in August. She described how alarms would go off before rockets hit and said her family has impact. Epsztein said she was happy to see so many UF students at the rally supporting Israel. It warms my heart, she said. Rabbi Berl Goldman, co-director of the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center, said he was pleased with the turnout. The entire Jewish community is concerned, he said. We feel for them, we pray for them, we stand with them. Kahn said no matter which nation people are from or agree with, everyone needs to stand up against terrorism. It should be viva Palestine, viva Israel, viva peace, viva human rights, he said. RALLY, from page 1Hunters found Aguilars body Oct. 12days before Aguilar went missing.

EMILY PADGETTAlligator Contributing WriterThe Ronald McDonald House of Gainesville has eight staff members who run the house that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Eight staff members for a house that never closes. In the month of October, more rooms were full in the Ronald McDonald House than in the previous October, and staff members said they believe volunteers from community and UF organizations helped make that possible. The Ronald McDonald House provides a temporary home for family members of children receiving treatment at Shands at UF. In October 2011, 88 percent of the house was occupied, and the annual average occupancy rate for the house is 93 percent. This October, the occupancy was at 95 percent, said executive director Melissa Tyrone. She said the occupancy rate for each month is calculated by dividing the amount of rooms occupied by the amount of rooms available. There are 31 rooms in the house. One of the main things that makes our occupancy so high is that were able to turn rooms over quickly, Tyrone said. waiting list in a busy month like October, she said, and the goal is to shorten the time it takes to clean rooms to a couple of hours. There is only one full-time housekeeper and one parttime housekeeper. We rely heavily on volunteers to do our light housekeeping, said volunteer coordinator Dorie Faulkner. One day last month, she said, there were four rooms that opened up at the same time. If there hadnt been volunteers at the house that day to help clean up, the house would have been forced to turn people away. Judy Bates coordinates the visiting chef program that schedules organizations to cook dinner for families staying in the house. A group-cooked dinner was provided every night last month, Faulkner said, and sorority sisters from the UF chapter of Alpha Delta Pi did twice. It means so much to families to be able to come home to a home-cooked meal, she said. The families usually eat the meals and go right back to the hospital. If it werent for that program, theyd probably be living off vending machines, Faulkner said. In addition, October was dedicated to repainting and redecorating the house for its 30th anniversary and preparing it for the next 30 years, Tyrone said. The anniversary was July 8, but she said she talks about the history of the house at every event. Were really celebrating the occasion throughout this year, she said. Were giving ourselves a facelift for the 30th year. Some new furniture, including a couch delivered a few weeks ago, will help the house maintain its homey atmosphere, Tyrone said. The UF Department of Recreational Sports brought about 30 people to do deep cleaning and help wash window screens. They were tremendous, Faulkner said. They really spruced the place up. A garden club decorated the indoor patio with a fall theme, and Faulkner said they transformed the space from an ugly place into a serene one. Rotary Club of Gainesville members landscaped the west side of the house, completing their serenity garden and pond project. The Florida Youth ChalleNGe Academy in Starke ish the Rotary project, which Faulkner said she thought cost about $40,000. Other groups that volunteered during the busy month included UFs Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity and the American Society of Interior Designers. Faulkner said the Gainesville location is one of the older houses in the country, and she said the anniversary attracts community projects and exposure. Its a very, very big deal, she said. Faulkner said the proximity to UF is especially helpful for recruiting volunteers. We have the fortunate problem of having too many volunteers, she said. We have one could have. 10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffUF volunteers helped renovate the Ronald McDonald House, 1600 SW 14th St., for its 30th anniversary.

FLORIDA FACES JACKSONVILLE STATE ON SATURDAY AT 1 P.M. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Earl Okines career as a Gator hasnt always been enjoyable. and when he did, he didnt perform well enough to earn extensive playing time. As a native of Gainesville, the frustrations were exacerbated. He constantly had to hear about his lack of production from those closest to him. There have been many times when I was just real down, Okine said. But that just comes with playing in your hometown. For those reasons, Saturday will be a special day for the redshirt senior defensive lineman, who has had his most productive Okine will have more than 20 friends and family members in attendance when he and 18 other seniors are honored prior to their 7 Florida (9-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) hosts Jacksonville State (6-4, 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference) at 1 p.m. on Saturday. A graduate of Gainesville High, Okine games in 2009. Entering 2012, he had recorded just 15 tackles. He credits Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinns coaching for the strides hes made over the past two seasons. Dan Quinn is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me in my football career, Okine said. Hes just an excellent coach. I cant say enough about him. He conveys his message on his techniques very well better than Ive ever seen a coach do. Through 10 games in 2012, Okine has 10 attempt in Floridas 31-17 win at Vanderbilt on Oct. 13. Quinn said Okine made progress with his ability to shed blocks of the blocks and seeing it, Quinn said. He has certainly worked hard at that and you can see him improving. Every current UF senior was a part of the 2009 team that was undefeated before falling to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. Fifth-year seniors such as Okine, defensive tackle Omar Hunter and Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray were around for the 2008 national championship run. The seniors have also experienced the other end of the spectrum, as Florida strugsix-loss campaign in 2011. While the Gators wont be in the confer ence title game this year, senior linebacker Jon Bostic said being a part of UFs bounceback season was most meaningful. I was here my freshman year and went to the SEC Championship, so Ive kind of been here through the highs, Bostic said. Then, you know, sophomore, junior season, just being able to turn everything back around and get everything back on track. Although Okine struggled early on, he does not regret the way his Florida career played out. I love this university, Okine said. And I wouldnt have redone anything. I love this program, and it will always be a part of my life. Okine is content with his college career. He would not be distraught if he doesnt If this is my last year playing football, Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alliga tor.org. 3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSenior defensive end Earl Okine (91) pursues Missouri quarterback James Franklin during Floridas 14-7 win on Nov. 3 in The Swamp.

JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Florida fans may be bored with Louisiana and Jacksonville State coming to town, but dont expect athletics director Jeremy Foley to apologize for the Gators mid-November lull. Consecutive games against the Ragin Cajuns and the Gamecocks are welcomed. Playing the little guys keeps the lights on. Foley is just happy the schedule is full. Since the NCAA added a 12th game to the schedule prior to the 2006 season, Foley said en challenging. you, Foley said. Everybody is scrambling to get opponents. Every team ranked in the top 10 of the BCS standings has played at least two non-BCS opponents this season. The Gators also need to schedule opponents who will play in The Swamp. While Southeastern Conference schools Georgia and Alabama have recently played home-and-home series with Arizona State and Penn State, Florida needs the dollars from home games. According to UFs 2011-12 athletic budget, the Gators made $2.3 million per home football game last year. Football, which supports Floridas other 20 sports, accounted for 65 percent of the UAAs revenue last season. Next season, the Gators will host fewer than seven home games in a single season for the on Sept. 7, 2013, as part of a home-and-home series. The Gators defeated the Hurricanes 26-3 in The Swamp in 2008. When youre taking a game off campus, its costing you money, Foley said. Weve been setting aside money in our budget since 2008 to make up for the loss were going to have next year by not having seven home football games. If you did that every year, youd drastically affect the ability to run this program. made a habit of playing competitive openers since arriving in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in 2007. In six seasons under Saban, the Crimson Tide has faced a top-10 team in three season openers and Its good for our fans to have a national game that they can look forward to, Saban said. It helps our team develop in the offseason as well as in fall camp, having a challenge like that early on. I do think it has prepared us for a lot of the tough games in our league. The Swamp was drying up. As Louisianas Blake Comminie scampered into the end zone after scooping up a blocked the third time in less than a year, Florida trailed a non-BCS opponent at home. thought to myself, Were going to lose this the best of me. After entering the game as a 26.5-point favorite, Floridas 49-game winning streak against non-BCS foes was in jeopardy. UFs last State in 1988. In 18 games against non-BCS foes since the 12th game was added in 2006, Florida has outscored its overmatched opposition by more than 38 points per contest. The Gators eclipsed the 50-point mark in eight of those games. The only way the fans can vote is by not showing up, by being apathetic about it, ESPN College GameDay host Chris Fowler said. You see that in a lot of places. (There are) a lot more empty seats than youre used to seeing from some big teams, because the matchups just dont warrant it. Win or lose, Louisiana helped Florida extend against a non-BCS opponent. Prior to 2011, UF had notched 137 consecutive home sellouts, which at the time was the fourth-longest active streak. Attendance for the Gators win against the Ragin Cajuns was listed as 86,482. But when Loucheiz Purifoy blocked a fourth-quarter punt and Jelani Jenkins returned it 36 yards for the game-winning touchdown, not even 60,000 fans were around to cheer. Few cared about a game in which UF had little to gain and much to lose. Scheduling games that are exciting for the players and the fans is important, Fowler said. Youve got some very soft scheduling that is anti-college football. The last time the Gators opened the season with a non-conference BCS opponent was 1990 Florida defeated Oklahoma State 50-7, starting the Gators current 23-game winning streak in openers. Twenty-one of those victories came against non-BCS foes. When UF leaves Gainesville for a non-conference game, the trips are usually short. Excluding a visit to Tallahassee every other year to face Florida State, Floridas last two nonCoral Gables in 2003 and Syracuse in Syracuse, N.Y., in 1991. When asked why the Gators had not left the Sunshine State for a non-conference game since his second season in Gainesville, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier was frank. Because Florida doesnt have to, he said. [Florida has] plenty of tough competition The Gators boast one of the toughest schedules in the nation this season with games against half of the top-10 teams in the BCS standings. Florida is 3-1 with a matchup against BCS No. 10 Florida State looming on Nov. 24. You look at our schedule and what weve accomplished this year. Weve had a hell of a year.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterPedro Bravo will face additional charges in the Christian Aguilar murder case after an Alachua County grand jury met Thursday. The grand jury indicted which suggests he may have drugged and suffocated Aguilar, an 18-year-old UF freshdegree murder and kidnapping indictment he received Oct. 8, according to court records from the Alachua County Clerk of the Court. Bravo was charged with poisoning food and/or water with the intent to kill or injure false police report and illegally moving human remains. The grand jury also charged Bravo with tampering with physical evidence when he tried to hide duct tape, a shovel and Aguilars personal belongings as well as attempting to bury the body, according to the court records. Aguilar and Bravo were former classmates who graduated from Doral Academy Preparatory School together before coming up to Gainesville to attend college. While Aguilar studied biomedical engineering at UF, Bravo went to Santa Fe College, where he was enrolled in two classes, said one of Bravos roommates in an interview. On Sept. 20, Aguilar was last seen with Bravo walking into a southwest Gainesville Best Buy, where Aguilar planned to Alligator archives. The next day, Aguilar was reported missing to University Police. In an interview with Gainesville Police, Bravo told detectives he beat Aguilar and left him in a northwest Gainesville parking lot. On Sept. 24, police arrested Bravo on a charge of depriving a victim of medical care and booked him into the Alachua as of Thursday night. For the next month, Aguilars family, along with Gainesville and Miami residents, teamed up with police to search for Christian Aguilar, combing through woods and swamps across the area.

Many UF students stopped by for photo ops and cheeky comments, but some could end up as Hotdoggers, the name for the group of 12 recent college graduates who drive the Wienermobile full time around the country to promote Oscar Mayer. Hotdoggers Eliot Pattee and Anggela C. Pimentel Warstonh, who go by the aliases of Deli Eliot and Anggie Dog, said although the recruitment process begins in February, theyre trying to raise awareness on campus for the job. They love the Wienermobile, and by extension, they love us, said 25year-old Warstonh. Warstonh said the 24-foot-long Wienermobile, which has a Chevy Chassis base, is easy to drive. Hotdoggers have two weeks of training at Hot Dog High in Madison, Wis., to learn to drive the vehicle. Pattee and Warstonh cover the southeast U.S. They said Oscar Mayer recruits heavily from 10 different campuses, including UF and Florida International University. Weve been as north as D.C., as west as Nashville and as south as Miami, Pattee, 22, said.

The shop aims to provide a space where people can get all of the materials they need to feel beautiful, Trotter said. ULTA primarily sells makeup, skin care products and hair products. While the store is near the Oaks Mall, it isnt inside the mall. We like to stay out of malls because our business model is about convenience, he said.

Gators!Labor rights should be valued and protectedThe constitution of the International Labour Organization declares universal and lasting peace can be established only if it is based upon social justice. In other words, our society can progress only when we push for equality, human rights, opportunity and sustainability. Considering most of us spend at least one-third of our lives at work, it only makes sense that we as a society should regard safety and health in the workplace as a basic human right to be unconditionally supported and protected. This support and protection is maintained by labor unions, who collectively bargain with employers on behalf of employees for better workplace conditions, fair wages, health comfortable and productive in an environment that upholds human dignity. During the Progressive Era at the turn of the 20th century, unions like the American Federation of Labor pushed for broad reform in the workplace, particularly by preventing the courts from intervening in labor disputes through injunctions and yellow-dog contracts, which stipulate that employees cannot unionize. Since then, weve had the Progressive Movement and labor unions to thank for Social Security, employer-based health insurance, workplace safety regulations, child labor laws, sick leave, minimum wage, eight-hour work days, 40-hour work weeks, lunch breaks, weekends off, the right to strike, overtime pay, unemployment insurance, sexual harassment laws, workers compensation, the Family and Medical Leave protections that nowadays are basic and expected. On Wednesday, President Obama met with the heads of the nations most prominent labor unions and liberal think trous combination of sharp spending cuts and tax increases, which most economists claim will trigger another recession if not taken care of by the end of the year. After the meeting, labor leaders assured the press that President Obama is publicans that includes an increase in tax rates for top earners. According to Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, We are very, very committed to making sure that the middle class and workers dont end up paying the tab for a party that we didnt get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. Allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire for the richest 2 percent of households earning more than $250,000 establishes progressivity in our tax code, which is necessary to stimulate ecoreduce income inequality. In turn, resources are freed up to ensure we can afford tax cuts for the middle class and vital investments in education, infrastructure development, research, health care, clean energy and other public services. You dont necessarily need to look to history to see how important workers rights are. If you saw the mob of people marching down University Avenue on Tuesday afternoon, or read the front page of yesterdays Alligator, then youre aware of the rally Graduate Assistants United held to protest increasing GA fees and call for a minimum wage increase, health insurance, family/medical leave and child care. As a graduate teaching assistant in the Warrington College of Business Administration, I am a proud member of GAU. Also, I participated in both the march and the bargaining meeting, during which many GAs delivered moving testimonials about their daily struggles balancing graduate school, work, teaching, research and families on what is, in some cases, wages below poverty level. Since graduate assistants are responsible for more than half of all teaching and research at the university, GAU and its supporters believe they should be guaranteed fair wages and stipends, relief from fees and basic insurance coverage. This is social justice. If we want to expect a workplace that is fair, healthy, productive and safe, we need to value labor rights as human rights. Support unions!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 A movement started. There are petitions to the White House from people of more than 30 states asking for peaceful secession from the United States of America to form a NEW government. These petitions, starting with a petition for Louisianas secession from the Union, are not endorsed by the governments of their respective states. They are written by citizens through the White House website. quotes from the Declaration of Independence and patriots such as Benjamin Franklin. All of these petitions seem to say the same thing: We, the people, want freedom. This may sound good to many, but I would ask you to consider the possibility that there exists a better system of government. Consider this: On Tuesday, one brave citizen called for truly radical change. There is now a petition to make comedian Duncan Trussell the emperor of Earth. The petition appeals to the Obama administration to construct an iron throne made of meteorites and other less-than-savory items upon which the emperor can hold dominion over the planet. Just kidding. But this just goes to show what it takes to place a petition on the White House website. The petition area of the website is headlined We the People: Your Voice in Our Government, and just about any citizen can put anything they want up for petition. I encourage readers to read the secession petitions. Many of them are rife with grammatical errors. I surely have my problems with the evergrowing federal government, but if this is the face of what is to replace it, then I wont sign. I would also sincerely like to know where all of these people were when the younger strong suspicion, given the high percentage of petitions on behalf of red states, that these people are only calling for secession now because Obama won the election. Nearly all of the domestic issues handled on the federal level that one could complain about were started under Bush, I would argue. Why didnt they petition when he was Also, I am surprised that some of these petitions complain only of domestic policies. citizens without trial are worthy of protest, but isnt foreign policy equally worthy of To be very concerned with foreign policy isnt nitpicky, as Ive been told it is. Looking at our defense budget alone, we spend more than any country in the world by far. Since 9/11, we have spent trillions of dollars on wars. If one is concerned with the national debt, as some of these petitioners are, I would think that foreign policy would be very important. More than for money, though, perhaps there are good moral reasons to take foreign policy into great consideration. Since we invaded Iraq, there have been more than 100,000 deaths, mostly civilians. Just imagine that for a little. If it helps, imagine the faces of your own countrymen, people you know right here. Now imagine the hundreds of innocent noncombatants who died in Pakistan from drone strikes. Imagine the little girl crouched over the bloody corpse of her mother. Imagine the weeping father picking up the limp body of his dying son. How could anyone think that to consider Are these petitioners the same people who were beating the war drum before we people who are already beating the war These petitions seem less than desirable for many reasons. I would encourage those who want to make a change for the better to read up on the histories of the issues and to take a course in English grammar. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterTo question the theory of what normal looks like, students gathered on the Plaza of the Americas to do something most students enjoy: dancing. About 40 UF students and Gainesville residents participated in the Queer Sadie Hawkins Dance on Thursday afternoon, put on by OwnUp, a developing LGBTQ-straight alliance student organization. Students danced in front of the Whisper ing Close statue, which displays a heterosexual couple dancing. The goal was not to protest the statue, said OwnUp Co-Founder Eleni Angelopoulos. It was to raise awareness about heteronormativity, a cultural bias that portrays heterosexuality as normal and homosexuality as abnormal. Theres no representation of homosexual couples on campus, she said, gesturing to the sculpture. OwnUp aims to start a conversation about LGBTQ community representation at UF, Angelopoulos said. Were bringing awareness to ask questions so people know what heteronor mativity is, act now and make an all-inclusive campus, she said. The crowd started moving as a remix of Florence and the Machines Shake It Out blared from a stereo. People danced with their dates, whom they asked on the Facebook events wall, and a nearby display board asked, What is normal? Participants wrote answers to the question: An evolution in societal thinking. Queer sex. Love. OwnUp co-founder and English junior Patrick Runfeldt, 20, emphasized the dance was an image event, which aims to get people looking and to communicate the motive. Students walking by stopped to see what was going on, took pictures with their phones and even joined in the dancing. Brittany Bruce, another OwnUp founding member, said she was excited to see students taking notice. Hopefully, it gets on Facebook or Instagram and goes viral, the 22-year-old business senior said. After the music stopped, people talked, hugged and took pictures. Angelopoulos smiled and fanned herself despite the damp cold that clung to campus. The point of this event was to start discussion, the 21-year-old English senior said, and I think were doing that right now.

On the night of the incident, Joyce woke up with a pain in his leg, Daniel Vazquez, Joyces attorney, said Thursday. Joyce went to wash off the wound. When he returned, he noticed a small hole in his wall he described like a rat had chewed through the wall. Thirty minutes later, Vazquez said, Dixon knocked on Joyces door, saying he heard a noise and wanted to make sure everything was all right. Vazquez is accusing Dixon of never admitting to Joyce that the bullet came from his gun. He was very evasive about what happened, Vazquez said. The next day, Joyce went tors found metal shrapnel in his thigh. He then went to Shands at UF, where surgeons told him they could not remove the pieces, Vazquez said. The risk of taking out the fragments, because of the close proximity to vital arteries in the leg, was too high, he said. He could bleed out during the sur gery.

Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.orgUF student, shot in leg FOOTBaALL BROCK SENGAlligator Contributing WriterBetween the heat, early wake-up times and lack of time to tailgate, Joe Stubits said he hates when the Gators kick off at noon. Noon games cause tailgaters to start earlier, require workers to arrive at the stadium sooner and force fans to attend the games during the hottest part of the day. Stubits, a 20-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering junior, said he is less likely to attend a game at noon than a later game. Daniel Apple, assistant communications director of the UF Athletic Association, said the games kickoff times are set by CBS and ESPN, who hold exclusive rights to Southeastern Conference games. CBS holds exclusive rights to 3:30 p.m. kickoffs for the SEC Game of the Week. CBS also holds an exclusive window from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., where no other network can broadcast an SEC game. The attendance numbers listed on gatorzone.com show no correlation between attendance and kickoff times. ESPN gets the night kickoffs for SEC games after CBS gets their choice of the game of the week. ESPN also gives an option to schools for a pay-per-view game of their choice. There have already been three noon games this season. With Saturdays pay-per-view game against Jacksonville State set for 1 p.m., the UF football team will not have a night game this season. And that doesnt bother Desheba Rutledge. Rutledge, a concession stand worker at Ben Hill she gets to go home earlier. She said she believes more students than normal ask for free cups of ice during noon games. Ice or no ice, Stubits is not pleased. I was very angry when I looked at the times and was like, Wow, 12:30, awesome! he said. This sucks. Im going to die of heat. Stubits said he likes sleeping in, especially on Satur days, but noon games dont allow for that. I just kinda go, Oh crap, throw some clothes on, brush my teeth and run over to the game, he said. Preparation is very lacking.The student rally was not meant to be Israel versus PalestineAbove heads, signs read NO to HAMAS, YES to PEACE and Pro Peace. The crowd sang Jewish prayers and chanted, Its great to be a Jewish Gator. Across the plaza, a smaller group brana Democratic Society lead organizer Skye Schmelzer, a 20-year-old history junior, said they were there to counter-protest in support of Palestine. Kahn said the event was not meant to be Israel versus Palestine. We are on the same side, he said. I am scared not only for the people of Israel but for the Palestinian people. Shajar Epsztein, a 24-year-old law student, came to attend UF from Israel in August. She described how alarms would go off before rockets hit and said her family has impact. Epsztein said she was happy to see so many UF students at the rally supporting Israel. It warms my heart, she said. Rabbi Berl Goldman, co-director of the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center, said he was pleased with the turnout. The entire Jewish community is concerned, he said. We feel for them, we pray for them, we stand with them. Kahn said no matter which nation people are from or agree with, everyone needs to stand up against terrorism. It should be viva Palestine, viva Israel, viva peace, viva human rights, he said. RaALLY, from page 1Hunters found Aguilars body Oct. 12days before Aguilar went missing. On Oct. 12, two hunters found Aguilars half-buried body inside a wooded Levy County hunting club. Since the bodys discovery, the defense council, which includes have been preparing for trial.

EMILY PADGETTAlligator Contributing WriterThe Ronald McDonald House of Gainesville has eight staff members who run the house that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Eight staff members for a house that never closes. In the month of October, more rooms were full in the Ronald McDonald House than in the previous October, and staff members said they believe volunteers from community and UF organizations helped make that possible. The Ronald McDonald House provides a temporary home for family members of children receiving treatment at Shands at UF. In October 2011, 88 percent of the house was occupied, and the annual average occupancy rate for the house is 93 percent. This October, the occupancy was at 95 percent, said executive director Melissa Tyrone. She said the occupancy rate for each month is calculated by dividing the amount of rooms occupied by the amount of rooms available. There are 31 rooms in the house. One of the main things that makes our occupancy so high is that were able to turn rooms over quickly, Tyrone said. waiting list in a busy month like October, she said, and the goal is to shorten the time it takes to clean rooms to a couple of hours. There is only one full-time housekeeper and one parttime housekeeper. We rely heavily on volunteers to do our light housekeeping, said volunteer coordinator Dorie Faulkner. One day last month, she said, there were four rooms that opened up at the same time. If there hadnt been volunteers at the house that day to help clean up, the house would have been forced to turn people away. Judy Bates coordinates the visiting chef program that schedules organizations to cook dinner for families staying in the house. A group-cooked dinner was provided every night last month, Faulkner said, and sorority sisters from the UF chapter of Alpha Delta Pi did twice. It means so much to families to be able to come home to a home-cooked meal, she said. The families usually eat the meals and go right back to the hospital. If it werent for that program, theyd probably be living off vending machines, Faulkner said. In addition, October was dedicated to repainting and redecorating the house for its 30th anniversary and preparing it for the next 30 years, Tyrone said. The anniversary was July 8, but she said she talks about the history of the house at every event. Were really celebrating the occasion throughout this year, she said. Were giving ourselves a facelift for the 30th year. Some new furniture, including a couch delivered a few weeks ago, will help the house maintain its homey atmosphere, Tyrone said. The UF Department of Recreational Sports brought about 30 people to do deep cleaning and help wash window screens. They were tremendous, Faulkner said. They really spruced the place up. A garden club decorated the indoor patio with a fall theme, and Faulkner said they transformed the space from an ugly place into a serene one. Rotary Club of Gainesville members landscaped the west side of the house, completing their serenity garden and pond project. The Florida Youth ChalleNGe Academy in Starke ish the Rotary project, which Faulkner said she thought cost about $40,000. Other groups that volunteered during the busy month included UFs Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity and the American Society of Interior Designers. Faulkner said the Gainesville location is one of the older houses in the country, and she said the anniversary attracts community projects and exposure. Its a very, very big deal, she said. Faulkner said the proximity to UF is especially helpful for recruiting volunteers. We have the fortunate problem of having too many volunteers, she said. We have one could have. 10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffUF volunteers helped renovate the Ronald McDonald House, 1600 SW 14th St., for its 30th anniversary. Occupancy was at 95 percent this October. Local Ronald McDonald House experiences increased occupancyThis past months occupancy reached 95 percent

FLORIDA FACES JACKSONVILLE STATE ON SATURDAY AT 1 P.M. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Earl Okines career as a Gator hasnt always been enjoyable. and when he did, he didnt perform well enough to earn extensive playing time. As a native of Gainesville, the frustrations were exacerbated. He constantly had to hear about his lack of production from those closest to him. There have been many times when I was just real down, Okine said. But that just comes with playing in your hometown. For those reasons, Saturday will be a special day for the redshirt senior defensive lineman, who has had his most productive Okine will have more than 20 friends and family members in attendance when he and 18 other seniors are honored prior to their 7 Florida (9-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) hosts Jacksonville State (6-4, 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference) at 1 p.m. on Saturday. A graduate of Gainesville High, Okine games in 2009. Entering 2012, he had recorded just 15 tackles. He credits Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinns coaching for the strides hes made over the past two seasons. Dan Quinn is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me in my football career, Okine said. Hes just an excellent coach. I cant say enough about him. He conveys his message on his techniques very well better than Ive ever seen a coach do. Through 10 games in 2012, Okine has 10 attempt in Floridas 31-17 win at Vanderbilt on Oct. 13. Quinn said Okine made progress with his ability to shed blocks of the blocks and seeing it, Quinn said. He has certainly worked hard at that and you can see him improving. Every current UF senior was a part of the 2009 team that was undefeated before falling to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. Fifth-year seniors such as Okine, defensive tackle Omar Hunter and Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray were around for the 2008 national championship run. The seniors have also experienced the other end of the spectrum, as Florida strugsix-loss campaign in 2011. While the Gators wont be in the conference title game this year, senior linebacker Jon Bostic said being a part of UFs bounceback season was most meaningful. I was here my freshman year and went to the SEC Championship, so Ive kind of been here through the highs, Bostic said. Then, you know, sophomore, junior season, just being able to turn everything back around and get everything back on track. Although Okine struggled early on, he does not regret the way his Florida career played out. I love this university, Okine said. And I wouldnt have redone anything. I love this program, and it will always be a part of my life. Okine is content with his college career. He would not be distraught if he doesnt If this is my last year playing football, Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. 3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSenior defensive end Earl Okine (91) pursues Missouri quarterback James Franklin during Floridas 14-7 win on Nov. 3 in The Swamp.
