An episode of Emerils Florida airs at 9:30 a.m. featuring tailgating at the Florida vs. Florida State game, which took place on Nov. 24 in Tallahassee. The episode includes interviews with former Gator quarterback Chris Leak and Candi Fisher, the wife of FSU Head Coach Jimbo Fisher. In the episode, Emeril Lagasse cooks tailgating favorites with his son at the game and hosts a cook-off competition between two Gators and two Seminoles. Spoiler alert: The Gators win. During the show, Emeril cooks recipes such as bacon potato salad, barbecue ribs and pork roast with homemade barbecue sauce. We wanted to highlight the great Florida experiences, including college football, said Carol Dover, president and CEO of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association.

The city has seen 16.61 inches of rain in July, according to a tweet by WRUF Weather (UF), which is nearly triple the average of about 6 inches. Since recordkeeping began in 1890, rainfall in Gainesville during the month of July has never surpassed 16.41 inches the record set in 1909, according to National Weather Service archives. Only 3.91 inches of rain dampened the city in July 2012, according to Florida Forest Service data. warning for central Alachua County, during which about 3.68 inches of rain drenched the city, according to The Weather Channels website. But the higher levels of precipitation for this season arent uncommon, said Katia Matcheva, a UF weather professor. Although the amount of rain might be somewhat unusual, the frequency of the storms are normal, she said. Matcheva said that Florida is separated by distinct wet and dry seasons, and July is typically the wettest month of the wet season. While students may be growing tired of the citys Rainesville alter ego, Matcheva said attendance in her classes hasnt seemed to be affected by the weather. Students are not scared of rain, she said.

happening over summer because the term has a smaller student population, making it easier to enter the classrooms. The four classrooms this summer is just a small fraction of the amount of classrooms we are working on this summer, he said. Thirty or even 40 classrooms have already been digitally changed. Nguyen said the classroom digital upgrades are part of a four-year plan to upgrade all 250 of UFs general capability. Carleton Auditorium was UFITs largest renovation project for summer 2013, according to its website. Water damage repairs and improvements to lighting, stage accessibility and the audio system were completed before the start of Summer B. Nguyen said the Carleton Audition was a special project because it was dated and dark. All new technology equipment and new digital processors, Nguyen said. We did a full rip-out and reinstall as far as technology. Nguyen did not disclose how much the renovation cost. Other classroom technology projects this summer include the installation of improved lecture recording capabilities in two Turlington rooms, which will enable higher quality lecture footage, according to UFITs site. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 2013 Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffThree new projector screens hang in Carleton Auditorium as part of UF Information Technologys major renovation project for the summer. Additional work included water damage repairs and improved lighting. EMILY BUCHANAN Alligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents expressed mixed reactions to U.S. Census Bureau statistics that show poverty rates decreasing in many college towns where off-campus graduate and undergraduate college students are excluded. According to data released in the spring, 24.6 percent of Alachua County, including students, is below poverty level. Excluding students from the data decreases the countys poverty level to 16.1 percent. UF microeconomics professor Mark Rush said that excluding students from poverty data, and basing it on permanent residents alone, presents the data more accurately. I understand the students perspective, but student poverty is a different kind of poverty, he said. Its temporarily living in poverty for a couple of years and then later working and bringing in more income. However, Deniss Kaskurs, a 22-year-old UF political science and economics senior, said the new data is an inaccuKaskurs said if the Census Bureau wants more accurate data on poverty, it should include students. He said this data will decrease the average income level. Jeremiah Tattersall, an organizer for the Alachua County Wage Theft Task Force, said he was disturbed when he read the data. He said removing students from the data assumes they dont contribute to the local economy. Tattersall said the citys workforce includes about 50,000 students, and of that number, about 4,000 graduate students who work full time. This is very misleading to exclude students from poverty, he said.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Matt Riva / Alligator StaffWet Paint CALLI RATHSAMAlligator Contributing WriterChild campers will see some mad science today coming from UF. UFs Mad Scientists Club will perform at Camp Kesem UF, an Ocala summer camp for children whose parents have or have had cancer, as part of its community outreach program, said club president Genevieve Comeau. A program director asked the students to put on its Mad Science 101 show, which in an exciting way, at a Camp Kesem carnival. The clubs requisition ofshow will include sections on chemistry, biology and physics. Students will demonstrate an explosive experiment called Elephants Toothpaste, which explains how plants grow from seeds by showing electricity traveling up a Jacobs Ladder. Comeau said the club has previously performed a similar science show at Fort Clarke Middle School. She said the club does shows like these to show the newest generation of scientists that its OK to push the limits and break rules as long as you have the proper safety equipment on standby. The club is relatively new. It was formed last Fall by Comeau, who got the idea while in class. I was doodling in a history of science class, listening to my professor raving about Tycho [Brahe], Kepler and Newton and thinking that most of the breakthroughs these guys made were tinkering around on their own, doing projects that interested them, Comeau said. I was sure there were others who felt the same. There were. Eager members formed the club. Sure enough, they showed up with lots of ideas for projects, Comeau said. student-run, with each of the members chipping in with money and ideas for each project and performance.

Well, one group on campus showed us that there are those who care, after all. LAUREL to the members of UFs Humans vs. Zombies who restored the monument. Good job, and thanks! Who am I to judge a gay person? With these words Pope Francis has shaken Christendom. It seems like a step in the right direction: We want gay people to be as openly accepted and welcome in society as straight people. The new pope has been doing lots of novel things lately. For example, Pope Francis has ditched the golden throne and now sits on a wooden one. Theres a long way to go, but small changes like these are admirable. It seems the pope is saying that its not his place to decide the rightness or wrongness of the issue of homosexuality, and moral authority over such issues. We give an iron LAUREL to Pope Francis, because we know he might not like the ruby one as much. As you may have heard, whistleblower Bradley Manning was convicted of 17 of the 22 counts against him. Some are pleased with the verdict, if only for the fact that Manning was not convicted of the most serious charge aiding the enemy. Yeah, thanks for not convicting him of something he never While the case of Bradley Manning strikes us as slightly tricky, theres no question that he was denied human dignity while he was detained. The message is clear: Thats what you get for catching the government with its pants down. That and maybe 136 years in prison.

Fox News recently interviewed scholar of religions Reza Aslan on his new book on Jesus. In classic Fox News style, the interviewer drew attention to Aslans religion: Youre a Muslim, so why would you write a book on the founder of Christianity? The response is golden: To be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades, who also just happens to be a Muslim. The interview goes way downhill from there, and nine minutes later you wonder how Fox News even let such an embarrassment continue for that long.

Todays question: Have you ever been robbed? Moving exposes missed connectionsI felt an inkling of regret walking past the empty apartment downstairs. I had wanted to introduce myself to my neighbors, a man and woman in their mid-20s who shared a car covered in video game-themed stickers. But between UF coursework and keeping up with old friends, I hadnt made time for meeting everyone in my building. Visiting Craigslist to sell furniture, I imagined posting a message in the Missed Connections section: Hello, I lived upstairs for a year but never took the initiative to be a good neighbor. I noticed your video game stickers. We should play XBOX sometime because Im a nerd, too. I would probably add a caveat about not wanting to seduce them, considering the medium. As UF students pack up their apartments for the end of Summer B, some will notice these missed connections. Watching our neighbors emerge at once on moving day, we see how little or how much weve connected with our communities: Whats her name? Where does he live? Where has that family been all this time? Because UF offers hundreds of social opportunities, off-campus students can stay busy for four years without becoming part of the Gainesville neighborhoods in which they live. Thats a shame, though, because meeting neighbors is one of the best things students can do to enhance their personal safety and well-being. I realized this last summer while reporting for a story about crime prevention. As we cruised around Gainesville before they spread. While police are commonly known for Graham also focuses on preventing crime through community organizing. As we drove through a neighborhood a few blocks northeast of UFs main campus, Graham pointed to the house of an 80-year-old woman who lived alone with her dog. He had helped alleviate the residents fear of a home invasion by introducing her to her neighbors, who would watch for signs of suspicious activity, and by offering creative safety tips. Heres what you might want to do, Graham told her. Go out and get yourself a big dog bowl, a really big one, for your front porch and a sign that reads Attack Dog. Alright, the resident said, giggling. Her dog was a chihuahua. This job can be really hard, man. Itll break your heart, Graham later told me. He must occasionally respond to assaults and robberies, even though neighborhood watch groups have reduced crime in his districts. But I feel really good when I walk into my apartment at the end of the day, Graham added, smiling. make a habit out of meeting their neighbors now may set a good precedent for their future social lives. As students graduate and grow older, their social circles usually constrict. Ive heard college alumni in their 40s and 50s say they have fewer opportunities to meet people. They can frequent after-work bars and social groups, but its nothing like UF, where they met dozens of like-minded peers every semester. While its true that students have more chances to socialize, another reason for their larger social circles is a change in mentality. Teenagers who move from various parts of Florida to Gainesville have to be a little more outgoing to establish new groups of friends. Starting a conversation with a classmate or roommates from another suite may feel uncomfortable, especially for the introverts among us, but its a necessity if you want to grow roots In the spirit of keeping up this mentality, I challenge all UF students who are moving this week, including myself, to meet their neighbors within 10 days of joining a new community.

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I cant stop thinking about boning this hot guy. I have bigger issues to deal with and need to put it out of my head. How can I do this? Dear Friend, gers look like youve been in a bath for too long or until they never smell the same. Dear Mediocre Advice, Im gay and I want to be able to kiss my boyfriend in public or at least in front of our other friends but we both feel a little weird about it. Any advice? Dear Friend, your lack of affection in public is not because of what others most likely ignorant opinion, just dont worry about it. Youre in a relationship with a person you legitimately give a st about. Everyone that isnt you or your boyfriend can go eat a bag of dildos. Do whatever PDA you want with your boyfriend, but do not have sex in public because if you get caught, you will probably be put on the sex offender registry. Dear Mediocre Advice, Since its possible to break out of friend zones, is it possible to break out of zones like Jewish girls who will only date Jewish guys or white girls who will only date black guys? Dear Friend, Yes, it is possible to break out of these zones and Ryan Gosling is living proof. There is no one on this earth that wouldnt go on a date with that face and those abs. Having a type is just a personal preference. If someone has found their type to be Jewish guys or black guys, you cant be mad at that person for not wanting to go out with you. Dont take this rejection personal. It would probably be a waste of both of your time, anyway. The heart wants what it wants, and sometimes it just wants a Jewish guy.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 2013 SHOP OPEN TUESDAY TO SUNDAY. BRANDON SHENKAvenue WriterI walk through Death or Glory Tattoo Parlours front door that faces out toward North Sixth Street. Im greeted by a glass casing that contains several shelves meticulously loaded with a variety of bric-a-brac. Unknown to myself, this is the shops shrine, a monument to the lives of its workers and the art of tattooing. The owner, Little Mike, a rough-and-tumble looking man decked out in tattoos and a plain T-shirt, invites me into the back. He talks in a relaxed baritone with a slight rasp. Who all works here? Its me and Rob. Then theres Nick Hall over there and Lee Miles. How long have you been open for? Weve been open for two years. We all started at BODYTECH, then some of us left and opened Anthem about six years ago. I kept butting heads with another dude who worked there, so I decided I wanted to do my a shop and I wanted to be able to make that an actuality. I moved down to Ocala to work for about six months, but I still had a bunch of people coming down there to get work done by me. So a friend told me Id be a moron to leave that type of clientele. I was going to ask, why Gainesville? but I guess that answers it. Yeah, I moved here when I was around 17 or 18 to go to art school. Soon as I got here I was hanging out at tattoo shops. Thats when I got the bug. I was already crazy about getting some bikers in a living room. It seems apprenticeships are a big part of becoming a tattoo artist. Was that the case for you? learned under my friend Danny and was off and on doing tattoos, working other odd jobs often until I was about 27. Is that the case for most tattoo artists? They have some kind of background of sketching a lot or going to art school? actual drawing part. If youre good mechanically, you can still tattoo. You know, trace the lines and put ink into skin. That aspect is very straightforward. What makes Death or Glory different from other tattoo places? Were way more involved in the tattoo world. Were constantly striving to get better, doing guest spots and having other artists come in. We hold ourselves to a higher level, for sure, than most shops in town. It was sh--ty thing you built with your own two hands messed up. How is tattooing different from other art forms? The craft of putting ink into skin is pretty rare. Really at the end of the day, its a folk art. Its not high-end gallery stuff. I dont think of it that way. Whats one style that you try and emulate? I think that American traditional really encompasses all the rules that you should follow. I love all different styles though: black and gray when its done right, traditional Japanese stuff. But American traditional is really designed to be a tattoo. Death or Glory is a traditional design based off a war medal. What would you say to someone who is on the fence about getting a tattoo? I dont ever try and push anything on anybody. If theyre indecisive, this is the last place in the world to be. Really, just make sure who you go to, and look at portfolios and dont worry about money. Thats the worst thing you can do because youre going to end up with somebody who doesnt know what theyre doing. You tattoo each other ever? All the time. Nick just did a big tattoo on my foot. I just did a piece on Rob. And Rob just worked on Nick. How do you view this store and your co-workers? Its total family. We eat together, we spend time together, our holidays are spent together. Theres also a really tight-knit group of friends who were once clients who are now really close with us also. What about future plans for Death or Glory? I dont know. I love whats going on right now. I just want it to at least stay this way. Death or Glory Tattoo Parlour product of joint desire to improve Little Mike

THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Swimmer wins silver Recruits coming to visit Read the story on page 16. DRISKEL IS EXPECTED TO PRACTICE IN TWO WEEKS. ADAM LICHTENSTEIN and LANDON WATNICKFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel underwent appendectomy surgery on Tuesday, the team announced Tuesday. Coach Will Muschamp said the amount of time Driskel will miss will be based on how he recovers from the surgery, which he said could be up to about two weeks. Jeff had acute appendicitis and fortunately the medical staff caught it very quickly, Muschamp said in a press release. Driskel is expected to start at quarterback this season. Last year, he threw for 1,646 yards and Driskel also ran for more than 400 yards. The Gators begin fall training camp on Friday. the Gators four fall practices open to the public. Other quarterbacks on Floridas roster include junior Tyler Murphy and redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. Neither have thrown an in-game pass for the Gators. Cooper says slur: On Wednesday, CrossingBroad.com released a video of former Gators and current Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper using a racial slur during a Kenny Chesney concert on June 8 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. here, Cooper says in the 20-second clip. Less than an hour after Deadspin published a story featuring the video, Cooper apologized for his actions via his Twitter account (@RileyCooper_14). I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself, Cooper wrote. I want to apologize. I have been offensive. I have apologized to my coach, (Philadelphia Eagles owner) Jeffrey Lurie, and (general manager) Howie Roseman and to my teammates. I owe an apology to the fans and to this community. I am so ashamed, but there are no excuses. What I did was wrong and I will accept the consequences. Cooper held a press conference on Wednesday night and said he was drinking at the conamount of money. With Jeremy Maclin sidelined for the year with an ACL tear, Cooper is expected to be the Eagles No. 2 receiver this season. Leak joins offensive staff: Two months after joining the Florida coaching staff as a quality control coach, former Gators quarterback Chris Leak was named a graduate assistant on Wednesday. Leak was Floridas starting quarterback from 2003 to 2006. He is the all-time leader in quarterback starts (47) and passing yards (11,213). Leak won the national title game MVP after Florida defeated Ohio State 41-14 in the 2007 BCS National Championship Game. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@ alligator.org.

Keegan, Georgias top-ranked tennis player and No. 8 recruit in the country, according to Tenher high school career at Blessed Trinity with a 50-0 record and two consecutive high school titles.

The newcomers join sophomore Brianna Morgan and secone and Olivia Janowicz for the 2013-2014 season.Florida brings in three recruits We are thrilled with the addition of Stefani and Belinda,Roland ThornqvistUF coachTHE ALLIG A TOR A W ARDSAdam: UF had a lot of good teams this past year, and good teams tend to play good games. But few games meant as much to any program as Floridas win over LSU last October. To understand why the win was so important, you only need to look at the last couple seasons. A 15-11 record over the last two seasons put the football program in a funk, and it needed something to snap out of it. Yeah, the Gators won their mean too much. UF beat Bowling Green (Ill wait for you to remember that game), a pre-Johnny Football Texas A&M, Tennessee and Kentucky. I think those last two speak for themselves. UF needed a statement win to let everyone know that Florida football was back, and the LSU win did it. Landon: LSU-Florida was an entertaining, grind-it-out battle with plenty of implications, but it wasnt even the best college football game that day. On Oct. 6, some crazy stuff went down on the national landscape. North Carolina State upset then-No. 3 Florida State 17-16 on a touchdown pass with 16 seconds remaining, Stanford defeated Arizona 54-48 in overtime on a 21-yard touchdown run from Cardinal halfback Stepfan Taylor and West Virginia and Texas combined for 93 points in a backand-forth affair. But were debating the best Florida game of 2012-13, so I have to go with UF softballs 9-8 victory against Nebraska in the Womens College World Series Best game of 2012-13? SEE RALL Y, PA GE 20

half hours over 15 innings and helped the Gators stave off elimination. The win was as much of a statement for coach Tim Waltons group as UFs win against LSU was for the football program. The game had the home runs, the big plays everything a fan could ask for. What was expected to be a transformed into an epic contest that pushed back Americas beloved late-night SportsCenter segment and prevented our softball beat writer yours truly from checking out Midtown the night of June 1. Adam: Although Floridas win thrilling, it didnt have the same against LSU. Yeah, it advanced the Gators one win deeper into the WCWS, but they didnt win the title. In day Texas shut them out about 12 hours later. tired from the game the night before, but it kind of puts a damper on that exhilarating win. Meanwhile, UF-LSU set the tone for the rest of the year. That win gave Florida the momentum it needed Tenn., beat an upstart Vanderbilt team, then come back home and obliterate a top-10 Gamecocks squad in The Swamp. Remember, the Tigers were undefeated before playing the Gators. These were the same Tigers who had played in the national title game nine months prior. And Florida had everything to prove. Running back Mike Gillislee needed to prove he could run against a good defense, and he did. The defense needed to show it could stop a highly ranked team, and it did. Without beating LSU last year, Florida probably ends up on or two games worse, playing in the Capital One Bowl instead of the Sugar Bowl. Landon: Both contests were essentially elimination games, so Ill go ahead and refute that they had equal implications. Of course, UF footballs win against LSU meant more to the Gators football-centric fan base, but Florida softballs overtime win was way more exciting and added an element of surprise the football victory lacked. Who would have ever thought that Katie Medina and Jessica Damico would make SportsCenter Top-10 worthy diving catches? That Briana homers in the 10th inning? That freshman catcher Taylore Fuller would provide the game-winning play to score Lauren Haeger and Damico in the top of the 15th? That Haeger would experience the postgame moment she wanted so badly her entire life? Sure, the Gators experienced a hangover the next day against the Longhorns, but I dont think it put that much of a damper on the Waltons squad was exhausted. Besides, there was no way any team was getting past Oklahoma in 2013. original and unpredictable aura that makes us love sports. Ive seen the football team win big games before. Adam: You saw them win big games later in the 2012 season. Since youve been at UF, theyve lost every big game (unless you consider rivalry games against a bad Tennessee team big). Who wouldve thought Matt out of Odell Beckhams hands? The win against LSU was a will carry momentum into this upcoming season. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@alligator.org.

Moore, Tampa Bays All-Star pitcher who was put on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sore left elbow. Moore will miss one or two starts. The Rays are calling the move precautionary. 21 starts. The Rays made the move from Triple-A Durham. If this was the playoffs or some situation that called for me to be out there, I think without doubt that I could do it, Moore said. But theres just no reason for us to push things right now. Moore left Sundays start against innings. I think the second inning is when I started to feel it. But only on changeups, which is part of the reason why I stayed in at the game as long as I did, just mostly with fastballs and curveballs, he said. Said Maddon: Thatll happen where guys will get sore on a certain pitch, and then if they dont throw it they stop being sore. But the changeups a big pitch for him, so we wanted him to get that back, he said. The 24-year-old left-hander is tied for second in the American League in wins and winning perbatting average (.212). Anytime youre dealing with a pitcher and his arm, youre going to have some degree of concern, but everyone feels really good about it. So does Matt, Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. Were being overly cautious right now. The (upcoming) off-days afford us an opportunity to do that, and were going to make sure that hes 100 percent healthy when we put him back out there, he said.
