CHRISTINE FLAMMIAAlligator Contributing WriterStudents looking to save money on a college education can consider swapping conventional classrooms and on-campus housing for an online program or a commute to campus. Fifty percent of parents said they would consider having their child commute while living at home, according to a new study from Fidelity Investments. An even higher 54 percent said their children should take courses online. UF might make a parents money-saving strategy a reality. UF Online will offer a full bachelors degree program completely online. UF spokesman Chris Moran said with UF Online, in-state students will have a 25 percent discount on tuition. But he said the admissions standards are still the same. This isnt a consolation prize, he said. This is the same UF education, the same degree, the same rigorous standards. Its just a different way of delivering it. Another alternative way students try to save money is by living at home and commuting. Yasmeen Shanata, a UF public relations junior, commutes about 10 minutes to campus from her home in Gainesville to save money. Although Shanata, 20, might be earning back some cash, she said her college experience is different than a student who lives closer to campus. I dont feel like Im very connected with the campus, she said. Youre more independent when you live in an apartment. Jordan OConnor, a UF health science junior, said she feels more independent now that she is no longer a commuter. The 20-yearold commuted to UF as a freshman from her home in Ocala as a personal preference rather However, after deciding to live closer to campus, she said buying fuel for her gas-guzzling Jeep turned out to be the same cost as living in Gainesville. Both OConnor and Shanata said socializing was one of the main differences between commuting and living close to campus. I pretty much had no social life, OConnor said. I had friends while I was in classes, but outside of that I didnt really hang out with anybody. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2013Joanne Joseph / AlligatorAnimal science sophomore Justin Hanson, 19, right, and engineering freshman William Walker, 18, left, pass time in their dorm room Monday afternoon in Simpson Hall.

A recent study published by the Public Library of Science examined 82 users in their late teens or early 20s and found that people who frequently used Facebook felt worse about common negative emotion associated with Facebook: envy. The way we make sense out of the world is we compare ourselves to others, said UF Counseling & Wellness Center counselor Linda Lewis. Its not a very productive strategy, and if somebody came in talking to me about that, I would try to look at whats really going on there. She also said self-comparison is rampant in all forms of social media but suggested that Facebook could be amplifying the self-comparing nature of people.

He was the guardian of East Panhellenic Drive. Some attempted to pet him. Last week he was found dead, lying on the sidewalk between Kappa Delta and Tri Delta. The cause of death is unknown. To most, he died without a name, just another stray cat that calls UF home, but to 22-year-old UF alumna Hayley Plant, he was a friend known as White Cat. White Cat and I bonded so much last year and Ive gone into serious depression [about his death]..., Plant posted on Facebook. The news came as a shock to Plant, who said the animal was a young, spry cat. One Kappa Delta sister described him as the John Mayer of felines because he didnt care about anything and he loved the ladies. Last Fall, Plant loaded the cat in her car to get him neutered. After the procedure, Plant took White Cat into the Kappa Delta mailroom and nursed him back to health. After he recovered, Kappa Deltas house mother, Denby Smothers, made Plant take the cat to the wooded area near Royal Village apartments, an area known to house a large stray cat community. White Cat eventually found his way back to Sorority Row and began prowling for hidden scraps of food purposely left behind by students. The cat also bonded with Anne Cappello, a 21-year-old advertising and business administration senior in Tri Delta. I would always come up and say hi to him and pet him, and then actually one time we shared ice cream, Cappello said. to hear about White Cats death after Sophie Gray, a 21-year-old elementary education senior, told her of a dead animal outside of their sorority house. Cappello immediately went to check and was stunned when she saw who it was. Its sad that Im not going to be able to see his face in the morning before I go to class, Gray said. ... he may have been the only cat to have ever shacked in Kappa Delta, Plant said in her Facebook post.

Blind Item: Iowa grants guns to visually impairedThere must be something in the corn: On Sunday, The Des Moines Register published an extensively researched article on a strange loophole in Iowa gun laws. Thanks to gun permit changes that took effect in Iowa in 2011, people with visual impairments can legally carry guns with them almost anywhere. Private gun ownership for hunting isnt new for Iowans, confused as to how this strange loophole came to exist. Polk three people who couldnt legally drive; were unable to read to visual impairment. The issue is straight out of a Seth-and-Amy Saturday Night Live segment. Clearly, its worrisome to consider that perwork is receiving a permit to carry a gun to the feed store, or wherever people hang out in corn country. According to the article in The Register, the Gun Control Act of 1968 and other federal laws dont explicitly prohibit blind people from owning guns so what makes Iowa different? quirements for blind persons seeking guns and gun permits. According to The Register, for example, Nebraskan applicants who seek permits to legally carry a concealed handgun must provide proof of vision: either a valid state drivers license or a statement by an eye doctor that the individual meets vision requirements set for a typical vehicle operators license. Patrick Clancy, superintendent of the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School, was ambivalent when he spoke to The Register. On one hand, he said he believed guns may be the exception to the philosophy that blind people can participate fully in life. On the other hand, he told The Register that the applicants can safely handle a gun. Cedar County Sheriff Warren Wethington, who happens to have a blind daughter, demonstrated for The Register how blind people could be taught to shoot guns. In addition, Jane Hudson, executive director of Disability Rights Iowa, said blocking persons with visual impairment from obtaining gun permits violates the Americans with Disabilities Act the law prohibits different treatment based on a persons physical disabilities. The fact that you cant drive a car doesnt mean you cant go to a shooting range and see a target, Hudson told The Register. Blindness and visual impairment come in many different only blackness, for example. However, like many other states including our own Gunshine State Iowa could stand In defense of Macklemores Same LoveMacklemore and Ryan Lewis are undeniably the most successful breakout artists of 2013. The two preach messages that contrast starkly with their musical peers: choosing passion over money, reaching ones highest potential and bargain shopping for warded them for their sincere lyrics and respectable messages. That is, until Same Love hit the radio. Of course, Same Love was applauded for its positive message advocating equal marriage rights for the the role of stereotypes in the dynamics of homophobia. He highlights the painful and all-too-common usage of hateful slurs online and in the hip-hop genre. dressing an issue not his own. How could a straight, white male produce a work that accurately depicts the issues surrounding homosexuality? Its an argument worth considering. In a blog post about writing Same Love, Macklemore stated he hoped the song would advance the dialogue surrounding rights for LGBT Americans. He had tried penning the tune from the perspective of a young gay student but realized quickly it wasnt [his] story to tell. All things considered, it seems unfair to condemn the man for speaking out on an issue in need of reprethe realm of hip-hop. A straight man speaking out for the rights of a marginalized group he doesnt belong to is a start to breaking down the walls of exclusivity. In an interview with NYCs Hot 97, Macklemore explained his desire to hold the hip-hop community accountable for its oppression of LGBT people. Thats my community, he said of the music genre, one known for its intolerance of homosexuality. As Aimee Anderson, an English instructor at Santa Fe ColPost blog, if the song accomplishes nothing else, at least its able to spark a cross-cultural conversation between the gay and black communities. Certainly, LGBT individuartists, but Macklemore should be commended for affecting change in his own arena. He used his newfound fame to preach positivity and acceptance in an effort to amend the genres hateful past. Skeptics also wonder and rightly so if Macklemore is just a good businessman. Is he capitalizing on the times? This summer has been a pivotal one, what with all the news surrounding the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8. If ever the time was right for launching Same Love, he found it. If so, the joke is on him. He penned an anthem about one of the largest social issues of our generation that grabbed the worlds attention, so regardless of intent, volvement with the You Can Play project, an initiative to combat homophobia in sports, it seems unlikely hes fronting about his passion for the issue. Also, its no secret his uncles inspired the song, making the issue seem even closer to home. Hateful words and stereotypes have historical context in need of further unpacking, but Macklemores inand he did what he could. How could anyone condemn him for that?

ALEXANDRA HERSHORNAlligator Contributing WriterThe Digital Services Department of the George A. Smathers Libraries is working toward building a digital collection of all dissertations written at UF from 1934 to 2006. The collection will include approximately 12,000 dissertations upon completion. Project coordinator and library assistant Christy Shorey said the Digital Services Department is about one-third of the way through with the project. She expects the project to be completed in a couple of years. Once the library receives approval from the author to digitize the contents of a dissertation, the process takes about eight months to complete. Shorey and her team complete quality control checks before and after they outsource the material to a third party to be scanned into the system. through both the original and digitized documents to make sure they are as accurate as possible, Shorey said. We are digitizing these dissertations partly to have more accessibility to earlier scholarship and partly to help foster new research, she said. Shorey said the main goal of this project is to make all the scholarship completed at the university available globally. Barbara Hood, director of communications at the George A. Smathers Libraries, is working toward exposing this project to alumni who might not be aware of it. According to a news release, authors who cannot be located will still have their work digitized but will have the option to opt out if they choose to keep their dissertations private. Kristin Page, a doctoral student at the College of Education, said it is important to read previous dissertations to help her write her own. Page said that these days, all research is done online and previous dissertations help serve as the framework for new knowledge or to see where research on a particular topic has gone over time. It is very rare that I will actually go to the library and look for a paper document, she said.UF Libraries working toward dissertation digitalizationLIFESTYLE ERIC BANDINAlligator Contributing WriterKardashian followers are hurting their, like, vocal cords. The guttural vocal fry sounds could prove dangerous for those who parrot the vocal style of some celebrities. Stars like Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears, who are known to speak with the low pitch uhhh sound along with words such as like that exemplify vocal fry, inspire many people to pick up the potentially detrimental habit. If you do it enough you can create a lot of tiredness in your voice, said Judith Wingate, clinical associate professor and speechlanguage pathologist at UF. It can lead you to squeeze the muscles in the throat and cause problems. She continued: Essentially whats happening is the vocal folds are closed longer than theyre open as you speak, so you get this creaky popping sound. Vocal frying can cause wear on vocal cords, and can be heard in everyday speech. We hear vocal fry in young ladies who are trying to sound more mature, and young men who are trying to sound more macho, said Ronald Burrichter, professor of music at UF. Professional football players typically end their careers by 35 due to the abuse on their bodies and the same reasoning applies to celebrities who use vocal fry as a type of style, Burrichter said. In order to be a more effective communicator, you need to properly articulate your thoughts to others, said Danielle Espino, a 20-year-old linguistics junior at UF. There are certain measures that can be taken to avoid the negative effects of vocal fry. Vary your pitch, and make when you speak, said Wingate. To be on the safe side, I wouldnt recommend people do (vocal fry) for more than a couple of minutes a day.

Although OBrien is not paying for the extra workload, other students are paying for classes they wont receive credit for. Students, staff and faculty can audit classes. Although students will have to pay for the class, they wont receive a grade or credit at the end of the semester. Joseph Spillane, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences associate dean for student affairs, said the university would prefer if students didnt sit in on classes without registering. But, Spillane said, formally applying to audit a course is simple. form out with the approval of the college and submit it. Yumiko Hulvey, an associate professor of Japanese, has had students audit her classes before. I had an auditor who took all the quizzes, Hulvey said. But she elected not to write any of the papers. It depends on how much the auditor wants to be a part of the class. OBrien said she wants to do assignments but doesnt want to buy the course pack. I dont see a reason that a student couldnt just sit and learn, she said. Its better than students skipping.A different kind of sit-in: Students pay for classes, dont receive credit THERE ARE FOUR PROPERTIES TOTALING 40 ACRES. HANNA MARCUSStaff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgVacant warehouses may become functional business space once again if a Gainesville Regional Utilities plan to sell surplus properties goes through. Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency is spearheading the project to revamp warehouses on four separate properties totaling about 40 acres. Three of the buildings are part of the downtown Power District on Southeast Fifth Avenue. Amelia Bell, a GRU spokeswoman, wrote in an email that the buildings are for sale with the purpose of redevelopment. Bell wrote vacant locations are a direct effect of the utility companys consolidation into the GRU Eastside Operations Center, which opened about three years ago on North Main Street. The facility enabled us to consolidate operations, which increased providing faster response times, she wrote. When we moved to the EOC, several buildings downtown near our administration building were vacated. City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins said that while downtown Gainesville has historically acted as an industrial center, the city hopes to use these properties to develop something entirely different. We no longer need to use the GRU property for industrial uses, he said. We think its more important to have those outside of town than inside. process when it moved into a surplus GRU warehouse along South Depot Avenue.Local redevelopment agency leads warehouse revamp, repurpose project It sounded like stuff that I would want to know later on in life.Kristen OBrien21-year-old English senior Essentially whats happening is the vocal folds are closed longer than theyre open as you speak, so you get this creaky popping sound.Judith WingateUF clinical associate professor and speech-language pathologistBell CAMPUS

BRADLEY WILLIAMSAlligator Contributing WriterBack in 2001, most textbooks cost less than half the price they do now. Textbook prices have risen by 102 percent since December 2001, according to a report by Bloomberg published Thursday. The overall price of consumer goods has increased only 32 percent in the same amount of time, according to the report. Lynne Vaughan, director of the UF Bookstore, said she has noticed this trend. She said various factors contribute to the rising prices. They dont keep the books out long, Vaughan said. Three years seems like a long time for a textbook to stay relevant. Publishers are trying to stay in business. In my opinion, they push the authors for new editions. New technologies make textbooks more expensive, whether its the publishing rights to highresolution photos in science books or bundling a pre-existing book into a package with a clicker, Vaughan said. Although the UF Bookstore offers used books as a lowerpriced option, Austin Harvey, a 21-year-old biological engineering senior, said he skips the bookstores altogether. If it is something that pertains directly to my major, and I can use it again in the future, I buy it off of Amazon, he said. But for the majority of books, I rent them from Chegg. Harvey said the online textbook vendor www.Chegg.com has offered him the best prices. But he said he skips buying the textbook if a professor lets him know that it isnt entirely crucial to passing the course. student, he said. As a side note, Vaughan said professors at UF who write their own textbooks do not receive royalties from the sales they make to UF students. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 Jordan McPherson / AlligatorTextbook prices have increased 102 percent since 2001. Greater availability of digital options for textbooks, as well as a wider market for used books, may help ease cost pressures, according to a report. Some students skip buying the books altogether, though, to save money. LIFESTYLECost of textbooks has doubled since 2001, report says

Read the story on page 16.Florida-Tennessee game time announcedFloridas matchup against Tennessee on Sept. 21 p.m., the network announced Monday. JUNIOR THREW FOR A CAREER-HIGH 291 YARDS. ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer@adamDpincus Jeff Driskel suffered a slight sprain to the knee against Miami, UF announced Monday. The injury was part of a forgettable, muggy Saturday in Sun Life Stadium. He is expected to return to face Tennessee on Sept. 21, aiming to build on the good a career-high 291 passing yards and improve on the bad his three turnovers against the Hurricanes. His productive day resulted in Solomon Pattons 118 receiving yards, which marked the most productive game for a wide receiver in Driskels 14 games as a starter. Eight pass plays of 15-plus yards do not matter. Leading an offense to 413 total yards does not matter. A fumble and two interceptions do. You cant beat him down, center Jon Harrison said. You cant attack him. You cant criticize him about everything, because its not all on him. Theres no I in singular sport. Its a team sport, and we cant pass all the blame on Driskel. Down 14-6 at the onset of the Ryan Jones / AlligatorJeff Driskel runs the ball during Floridas 21-16 loss to Miami on Saturday in Sun Life Stadium. The junior quarterback threw two interceptions and fumbled once in defeat. JONATHAN CZUPRYN Alligator Writer@jczupryn bounded to defeat Duke after showing some signs of weakness against LIU-Brooklyn the previous night. Madison Monserez addressed the media following the victory over the Blue Devils and commended the Gators ability to make corrections within 24 hours of a match.

We approached this weekend like all of our preseason tournaments where you learn about players you dont play on a regular basis, she said. The turnaround in this tournament is the teams are so familiar with each other. The challenge of a quick turnaround is made even more difUF history it faced the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in one weekend. match. Wise said the stiff competition in the regular season allows the Gators to get a feel for the playoff atmosphere they will see All four non-conference weekends really do prepare us time, Wise said. Early loss prepares Florida for rigors of postseason playFIRE JOE MORGAN The Jacksonville Jaguars do not want Tim Tebow. Get over it. I know the connection is convenient. Talking heads on ESPN have force-fed us the narrative for years. Even those of us who avoid First Take like the plague cant completely block out the nonsense. Hes a hometown hero! Hell sell tickets! Hes a winner! Stop it. Just stop. franchises approach to Tebow rumors clear during his introductory press conference on Jan. 10. said of the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner. Even if hes released. Two NFL teams have released Tebow since then, and as far as we know, nobody from the Jaguars has contacted the guy. I doubt any NFL team has made him an offer to play quarterback since the Patriots cut the former Gator on Aug. 31. But after the rebuilding Jaguars suffered an ugly 28-2 loss to time and smart draft picks. There is not an overnight cure. For instance, Jacksonvilles interior offensive line is atrocious, and its not getting better anytime soon. Slam Blaine Gabberts pocket presence all you want, but not even Peyton Manning could consistently stand strong behind that offensive line and produce. But dont misconstrue this column as a defense of Gabbert. As bad as the former Missouri Tiger has played, at least he doesnt generate a messy media storm every time he gets out of bed in the morning. His failures are quiet and under the radar, Meanwhile, ESPN treated Tebows 25th birthday like a national holiday.

However, Wise added that the team needs the beginning of the year to continue learning about itself as well as its opponents. The Gators were served a tough offensive lesson Sunday against the Nittany Lions. Gabby Mallette landed more attack errors than kills, which gave her a game-low -.053 hitting clip. Simone Antwi, who was instrumental in leading her team past Stanford, couldnt repeat her success Sunday as her hitting percentage dropped from .706 to .133. Wise said going back-to-back days playing elite teams is a tall order this early in the season because of how much homework goes into preparing for just one opponent. We are asking our players to learn this information (and) process this information without the practice time, Wise said. All of that makes them have to work harder, but it makes us a better team. Since Florida began competing in the Nike Big Four Classic, the Gators have made three straight Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight appearance. Although Wise would have preferred a pair of wins over the top-ranked teams in the country, she said she does not focus on the win-loss record in a tournament this early in the season. The win on Saturday does not end, Wise said. what we learned from it and how much better we are moving from this point forward. second quarter, Driskel had the Gators in the red zone. He evaded the pass rush, stepped up in the pocket and threw late over the middle for his It was a dumb play, Driskel said. I should have just taken what the defense gave me. Instead, I tried to make the bigger play. Thats what Ive got to move on from. Down 14-9 with 6:57 left in the fourth, Driskel took the shotgun snap, rolled out and of Miami cornerback Tracy Howard. Trey Burton said he ran the wrong route and clogged the ception. Driskel said he never should have thrown the pass. As for the fumble the quarterback did not stand a chance. Disaster struck on a thirdand-7 from Floridas own 17. Defensive lineman Tyriq McCord stripped Driskel and recovered his own forced fumble. Two plays later, Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes blared on the sound and-goal at the 2-yard line. Three plays later, Duke Johnson Jr., ran off left tackle, headed into the end zone untouched and stuck the dagger into Floridas backs. [Driskel] hit some balls did some nice things in the run game, but you cant have the turnovers, especially in the red zone, coach Will Muschamp said. You cant make those decisions. You cant. We cant afford to take points off the board in those situations. Thats such an emotional lift for the other team. That just cant happen. Three turnovers stained a 22-for-33 day for Driskel, who established a connection with his two top wideouts. He showed an ability to throw his 46-yard completion to PatThe Gators are still behind their quarterback. Driskel did not immediately address the team after the game. He showered, spoke with the media, and boarded the bus. Like his teammates, Driskel wants to move on from a disappointing Saturday. Jeff is going to be all right. He made some tremendous throws out there, receiver Quinton Dunbar said. He get better.Driskel fumbled once, threw two interceptions in loss to Hurricanes TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15Kan Li / Alligator StaffGabby Mallette squats to bump the ball during Floridas 3-0 win against Duke on Aug. 31 in the OConnell Center. No. 5 Florida beat then-No. 2 Stanford on Saturday before losing to then-No. 1 Penn State on Sunday. DRISKEL, from page 13Jaguars averaged 64,984 fans per home game in 2012tweets to Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady on air on those quarterbacks birthdays? Nope. Insane popularity does not breed success. It usually sets you up for failure. Even if Tebow did miraculously get something out of the Jaguars offense, he wouldnt do much to help a defense with a subpar pass rush and a secondary greener than grass. During Tebows lone season as a starter, Matt Prater and a stout Broncos defense repeatedly bailed out a punchless offense. Expecting a similar formula with the Jaguars this season is ludicrous. But hey, he might sell a few more tickets, so go ahead and bring in a quarterback no better than Gabbert or Chad Henne but much more polarizing. Speaking of tickets, Jacksonvilles 96.8 percent average home capacity in 2012 bested both Green Bay and Pittsburgh. Maybe they should sign overrated local favorites with little to offer. If Tebow really does offer a potential attendance boost, why shouldnt the former Gator join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Miami Dolphins? Both franchises failed to outdraw a 2-14 Jaguars squad last season. A bad team in one of the NFLs smallest media markets averaged 64,984 fans per game. The Fins averaged 57,379, and the Bucs averaged 55,102. And Jacksonville is the NFL team in Florida with an attendance problem? Give me a break. Adding a quarterback who cannot possibly live up to the hype that accompanies him is simply a bad investment. build a strong, consistent winner. Signing Tebow would only hamper the rebuilding process. Thankfully, Caldwell and owner Shad Khan know that. Tebow will not be a Jaguar. Stop perpetuating an overblown and ridiculous myth. Just stop.
