Rain clouds loomed over the prison as more than 40 people gathered to protest the lethal injection of deathrow inmate William Happ. Happ has been on death row for 24 years for the abduction, rape and murder of 21-year-old Angie Crowley in 1986. midazolam hydrochloride, usually a sedation drug, Reuters reported. When the clock struck 6 p.m., the scheduled time of Happs execution, protesters took turns ringing a bell while chanting phrases like Stop killing people kill violence. We are here to stop the death penalty, and that is exactly what we will do, said 27-year-old Kurt Wadsworth Jr., a former University of West Florida student who spent the last four months protesting capital punishment. Wadsworth puts the situation into perspective by thinking of his brother, whom he visits in prison. I would never want my brother to die, regardless of what hes done, he said.

Dror Abend-David, a Hebrew literature and language professor and instructor for the Yiddish course, said the course will cover Yiddish language, history and culture. It will cover the basics of the language but also contextualize it and create an entire cultural experience from a language that is not being given as much attention as it could be, Abend-David said. The course is funded by the Center for European Studies and supported by the Department of Languages, Literature and Culture, and the Center for Jewish Studies, AbendDavid said. I teach Hebrew, and one of the students asked me, Well, why dont you teach Yiddish? Abend-David said. I said, I dont know. We should. We will. Abend-David said the course will be offered as a general topics course that should but students hoping to use the quirement should talk to their academic advisers. The course is targeted toward beginners and beginning-intermediate students of Yiddish, but intermediate and advanced classes could be created in the coming years, according to a UF news release. Yiddish is this ancestral language the language of folktales, of memories, of anything from superstition to secular culture, Abend-David said.

students will feel a personal connection to the course. Hebrew we grew up hearing in synagogues and whatnot, but its Yiddish that our grandparents are yelling at us from across the house, said Sharfstein, a 20-year-old UF philosophy sophomore. Abend-David said its a language of personal history because grandparents speak it. a very sentimental role, he said. Jared Kaplan, a 20-year-old UF biochemistry and psychology sophomore, said he thinks the class will also appeal to other students who may not be familiar with Jewish culture. When youre learning a language, youre not just learning a language, youre learning about the culture itself, Kaplan said. It gives you a different perspective on other cultures and a different way of thinking about things, in their own native tongue. Abend-David said intellectually, there is a lot to be gained by teaching Yiddish.

ALEXANDRA DACOSTAAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough the Hough Graduate School of Business was recently ranked by Forbes as a top national business school, students and faculty still see room for improvement. Forbes put together the list of the top MBA programs in the U.S. earlier this month, and UFs graduate business program is ranked at No. 63 out of 70. Brian Gendreau, a professor with the Hough program, ing. He said although the school needs to improve its ranking with Forbes, it is doing a lot of things right. Floridas business school programs are very rich. We attract high-quality faculty and high-quality students, he said. According to the Forbes website, Hough alumni have an average of 87 percent employment after graduation, a median base salary of $75,000 and a median signing bonus of $10,000. Out of all the schools Randa Medley applied and was accepted to, she chose UF because of its reputation for academics and is thrilled with the ranking. Medley, a 20-year-old UF graduate student in international business, said although UF didnt make the top 10, she thinks the ranking could still help her land a better job in an extremely competitive job market. It makes me feel proud to be a student here and that I have the opportunity Ive been given to study here, she said. The ranking shows me that Im getting a quality education. Craig Petrus, the director of graduate business career services at Hough, said he hopes for the school to partner with more Fortune 500 companies located nationally in order to raise the ranking. I think that any time the Hough business program is ranked nationally with other elite business schools, it is a good thing for the program, Petrus said.Locals: Forbes ranking means school should get down to business THE SERIES GOES THROUGH OCT. 31. MELISSA FLANJACKAlligator Contributing WriterThe Center for Leadership and Services fering a series of events to teach students how to address social issues. There will be different events each day through Oct. 31, including documentary screenings, guest speakers and discussions on controversial topics such as gay marriage and anti-bullying. Social Impact Week will focus on making students more socially responsible, said Angela Garcia, director for community engagement and service-learning for the center. Part of (being socially responsible) is understanding the social issues that face your community, Garcia said. Garcia said the center created Social Impact Week so different socially minded events can merge together around the same time. Events will be hosted by departments and organizations such as the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, the Institute of Black Culture and the Bahai Association. Maddie McClinton, a 19-year-old UF elementary education sophomore, said she is looking forward to the two-day Gator Global Initiative conference. Hearing others passions reassures me there are individuals, even right here at UF, that will create a change for the better, McClinton wrote in an email. McClinton, the student director of ambassadors for the Center for Leadership and Service, said Social Impact Week is important to students because the events provide an opportunity for them to be educated on social issues.Events encourage students to get socialSome UF students called Chomskys speech unfair, but others found it neutral Just seeing how many people were there and how happy they were to be there, not only to see Chomsky but to see that large of an audience, was really a powerful thing, he said. However, UF students like Raya Elias-Pushett, a 19-year-old anthropology sophomore, called Chomsky controversial. She said she found some of his characterizations, particularly of the Midment, unfair. I think that he focused too much on what is neglected in the media and not enough on how facts are presented, period, she said. I think that his point of view, although academic and respected because of his previous work, is not necessarily the most accurate or the most nonbiased. Anusha Hudda, an 18-year-old UF pre-nursing freshman, agreed that Chomskys opinions were thoughtprovoking, if not entirely neutral. Even though we could tell what side he was on, and what he was trying to accomplish with the speech, it was nice to hear a different side, Hudda said. Ryan Dargan, an 18-year-old UF mechanical engineering freshman, said Chomskys views should be taken with a grain of salt. great, thought-provoking points that kind of opened my eyes in a sense, he said.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Garrett Bruno / AlligatorSnapHack Pro, an app that allows users to save Snapchats, was released Monday. The app does not notify Snapchat senders that recipients have saved their videos and images. IT COSTS $1.99 IN THE APPLE APP STORE. GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterWatch out, Snapchat users: Theres a new way for recipients to save embarrassing photos sent over the popular disappearing-picture messaging application. SnapHack Pro, released Monday, is a new iPhone app that allows users to save picture and video messages without the sender is a departure from Snapchats ofif recipients have taken screenshots of pictures that were sent. The question is going to be: Does the person have a reasonable expectation of privacy when they sent that photo? said Jon Mills, a professor at the UF Levin College of Law and author of the book Privacy: The Lost Right. Snapchats popularity stemmed from the idea of allowing recipients to view pictures or videos for a certain number of seconds before they disappear, but SnapHack isnt shy about subverting this mission. Save your Snapchats to your camera roll without the sender knowing and view them as many times as you like! reads the apps description. SnapHack Pro, which costs $1.99 in the Apple App Store, allows users to log in with their Snapchat username and password and retrieve any picture or video message sent to them as many times as they wish. Snapchat users have expressed concern with the new app. If you can screenshot it without me knowing, I think that violates the integrity of Snapchat, said Francie Weinberg, a 21-year-old UF public relations senior. Clay Calvert, director of the Marion B. Brechner First Amendment Project at UF, said anyone who uses technology should assume the information is being stored. People who use Snapchat are probably a little bit nave to think that somebody out there on the other end is not actually able to save the photographs, Calvert said. If its not something you wouldnt want your mother to see, you probably shouldnt be posting it.Old Snapchats could haunt users with new iPhone app KRISTAN WIGGINSAlligator Staff Writerkwiggins@alligator.orgDue to legal loopholes on both federal and state levels, unpaid interns cant sue for sexual harassment from employers. But that could change with attention a recent case is attracting, UF experts say. The issue took national spotlight suit against her former company, claiming her boss sexually harassed her. The judge presiding over the case said she had no right to sue because she did not qualify as an employee she was not being paid for her work. The issues arent restricted to New York. Oregon is the only state where unpaid interns can actually sue for sexual harassment, USA Today reported this week. Robert Emerson, a professor at the UF business school, said the judges decision was not a shock. I dont think its surprising given the statute and the legislation, he said. A lot of judges are reluctant to craft remedies or rights that go beyond the literal wording of a statute or regulation. They feel like thats not their role. Joseph Little, an emeritus professor at the UF Levin College of Law, also thought the judge had valid reasoning to throw the case out based on the law that was in place. He did, however, say he was wary of The thing I would probably disagree with is the conclusion that under the circumstance, the intern was not an employee, he said. Maya Halaly, an 18-year-old UF animal sciences freshman, said the law should be changed to not have payment Everyone has human rights, and youre still an employee even if you dont get paid, she said. Harassment is still harassment. Both Emerson and Little discredited the idea that the loophole was meant to Some of the laws the judge in the New York case referenced when making this decision are decades old, including the federal Title VII of the Civil Rights Act that expanded employee rights in 1964, according to court documents. But companies can still have a vested interest in these cases, Emerson said. Even if companies arent required to pay interns, giving interns the legal grounds to sue is a risk that management isnt likely to promote. If you start giving more rights to people interns and others its one more drag on perhaps having internship said. But Alexandra Steele, an 18-year-old UF biology freshman, said she expects the laws to progress quickly with the changing times. The number of interns are increasing, she said, and awareness of sexual harassment is also growing, so I expect things to change quickly. Halaly and Steele both said they would quit if they were ever harassed as an intern, but they wouldnt stop there. Looking forward, Emerson said he expects legislators to tighten up the laws regarding interns. Its an interesting case, and hopefully maybe something will change in terms of the law because of publicity of cases like this, he said.Unpaid interns denied legal sexual harassment protection Forbes Top-Paid Internships 1) Exxon Mobil: $6,506 a month2) VMware: $6,4353) Facebook: $6,1974) Google: $5,9105) ConocoPhillips: $5,779

Call 352-376-4458.Kenan speaks out But he misses the point about the lack of diversity on SNLDuring the early years of Saturday Night Lives run, the environment was not friendly to women or minorities. This is made abundantly clear in both the book Live From New York and interviews with former female writers and cast members such as Jane Curtin. We all saw it, she said in an interview with Vulture in 2011, and it was just overwhelmingly rude, the treatment of the women writers, and just unnecessary. Many former cast members have spoken out on how the higher-ups within the show and the network were dismissive of both womens and minority persons sketch ideas, and if you happened to be a woman of color forget it. Even today, only three of the 16 cast members on SNL are minorities. While youd think cast members of color would advocate for more diversity on the show, Kenan Thompson implied in an interview with TV Guide on Monday that the lack of black female cast members was due to a lack of talented black female comedians. Um, has he not seen Wanda Sykes, Retta, MoNique or Jessica Williams from The Daily Show? Its just a tough part of the business, Thompson said. Like In the 38 years SNL has been on the air, the series has only had four black female cast members: Yvonne Hudson (198081), Danitra Vance (1985-86), Ellen Cleghorne (1991-95) and Maya Rudolph (2000-2007), TV Guide reporter Sadie Gennis wrote. Of the four, only three were repertory players (Hudson means, there were large gaps in SNLs history when there were no black women on the show at all. Jay Pharoah, the other black male cast member, has spoken up about the shows need for black female comics. They need to pay attention, he said, according to TV Guide, and even named black actress Darmirra Brunson as a potential addition to the cast. Why do I think she should be on the show? Because shes ing to TV Guide. Shes amazing. She needs to be on SNL. I said it. And I believe they need to follow up with it like they said they were going to do last year. Considering how SNL has slipped over the past few decades, one would imagine the producers would be scrambling for fresh talent. While women have had an expanded role on the show Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wiig and countless others its still lacking a presence of women of color. Thompson is accomplishing nothing by placing the blame on a lack of talent. Its not as if the producers overwhelmingly white and male have any personal incentive to hire black women. Its up to actors like Thompson and Pharoah, as well as other women, to advocate for more diversity on the show not blame the problem on a lack of talent. 56 TOTAL VOTES20% YES 80% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgTuesdays question: Have you twerked? Todays question: Have you ever taken a screenshot of a Snapchat? Yohos comments evidence of incompetenceThe dysfunction that plagues the political system in the United States is currently on full display. The federal government has been shut down for about two weeks with no apparent resolution in sight. Worse still, the country is perilously close to reaching its debt ceiling, the amount of debt the federal government is permitted by law to accumulate. Failing to raise the debt ceiling, which the government will reach on Thursday, could prevent the U.S. from paying interest on its debt. If the U.S. failed to meet default that could damage the countrys reputation with trum agree that a debt default by the United States could likely bring about a global economic crisis. A report from the Department of the Treasury stated that private-sector economic analysts widely agree that reaching the debt ceiling would lead to events of the magnitude of late 2008 or worse. None of these dire predictions seem to matter to our own Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), who has been content to own baseless assertions. In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Yoho said he believes the United States defaulting by reaching the debt ceiling would bring stability to world markets. Yohos misguided opinions about the potential effects of reaching the debt ceiling have been widely criticized, even by his fellow House Republicans. Rep. Reid Ribble (R-Wis.) described Yohos predictions on a debt default as crazy talk. As if Yohos ignorant comments on the debt ceiling were not preposterous enough, he has also attacked the hundreds of thousands of federal workers who have been furloughed as a result of the government shutdown he helped engineer. On Oct. 5, the House voted to approve back pay for these federal workers, which ensures they for the failure of Congress to agree on a plan to fund the government. Although Yoho voted in favor of the bill, he now claims he opposes providing compensation to the federal employees put out of work as a result of the shutdown. During a phone conversation with a constituent, Yoho said of government employees, If theyre not working, they shouldnt get paid. These federal employees, furloughed from their jobs through no fault of their own, wait anxiously for the government shutdown to be resolved so they can return to work. In addition, thousands of other federal workers whose jobs are deemed essential, including the Capitol Police and employees of the Department of Homeland Security, must work without pay until the shutdown ends. Meanwhile, Yoho continues to collect his congressional salary, paid in full by the federal government. Yohos destructive and misinformed comments are Gainesville voters will have the chance to remove Yoho and replace him with someone who competently represents their views and interests. Any citizen of Gainesville who supports a strong and healthy economy and wants political leaders who can deal effectively with the challenges our country faces should take full advantage of that opportunity and vote Elliot Levy is a UF political science and public relations junior.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Freshman honoredVernon Hargreaves III was named a midseason All-American by CBSSports.com. The freshman cornerback is the only Gator on the list.Ronni Williams has impressed early on for the Florida womens basketball team. Read the story on page 16. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer@jczuprynFollowing the Mike Rice player-abuse scandal in April that left the Rutgers basketball program in shambles, Eli Carter decided he needed a new start. Coach Billy Donovan and the Gators offered him one in Gainesville. When video leaked of Rice hurling basketballs and shoving players during the Scarlet Knights practices, the bottom dropped out of the program. They were suddenly without their head coach, assistant coach and four players including Carter, who decided to transfer. Before he suffered a season-ending broken right leg on Feb. 16, Carter was Rutgers leading scorer with 14.9 points per game. When he decided to leave following the scandal, he had to choose between Maryland and Florida. When asked what was the deciding factor in coming to play for the Gators, Carter replied, Just coach Donovan really. Assistant Rashon Burno also had a role in landing the 6-foot-2 junior guard, as both he and Carter attended Jersey City (N.J.) St. Anthonys High. Burno reached out to the fellow alumMay 10. Donovan said the most impressive thing about Carter is his ability to move on from a tough situation and maintain optimism about the future. The thing I admired most is he only had positive things to say about Rutgers, and he only had positive things to say about coach Rice, Donovan said. But I think he unfortunate (and) that he appreciated his ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24In the span of three plays, D.J. Humphries single-handedly ended Floridas chance at a comeback against LSU. Trailing 17-6 late in the fourth quarter, the Gators had a third and 10 at the Tigers 20-yard line when Humphries jumped the snap count start penalty. Seconds later, LSU defensive end Jordan Allen blew past Humphries untouched and put a hit on quarterback Tyler Murphy, who eluded Allen but was sacked by Jalen Mills. All Humphries could do was stick his arm out. Pushed back to the LSU 37yard line, Murphy had one last chance to manage a comeback, but Humphries failed him again. Kendell Beckwith shook Humphries and sacked Murphy, forcing a fumble and giving the Tigers possession. After the game, Humphries apologized to his teammates. I just told the boys they depend on me too much in a critical time for me give up or allow something like that to happen, the sophomore said. But Humphries was not the only cog on the offensive line to struggle against No. 6 LSUs (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) defensive front. In a reversal of the Gators 14-6 victory against the Tigers in 2012, No. 22 Florida (4-2, 3-1 SEC) struggled to protect Murphy in the pass game or create holes for the Gators running backs. We werent physical enough up front, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. It was kind of the same scenario, our same situation last year, but reversed in that they had an intent to do what we did last year. And I think they won that battle. Murphy was sacked four times on Saturday for a loss of 40 yards. four plays, but the redshirt junior rarely had time to target receivers Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffD.J.

UF offensive line looking for redemptionTHE ADAM BOMBA foul smell of stale beer and streets as lime-green hand grenades line the sidewalks next to call cards for the citys classiest establishments. Bourbon Street is the Mecca of sugary drinks and a perk of covering the Sugar Bowl. Venture down Poydras Street toward I-10 and the site of Floridas BCS bowl loss looms over the city. The Sugar Bowl hosts the winner of the Southeastern Conference. With the SEC and national champions seemingly synonymous, one lucky SEC team usually books a ticket to the Sugar Bowl. Florida leapfrogged Georgia, which lost to Alabama in Atlanta. There will be no Atlanta or New Orleans if No. 22 Florida cant take care of business Saturday in Columbia, Mo. No, thats not a typo. No. 14 Missouri can now make or break Floridas season. As if playing against a team in Big 12 Country isnt ironic enough, Missouri is referred to as the ShowMe state. After a woeful performance against No. 6 LSU, Florida has to prove it can win with a depleted offensive line, defensive line, backbeaten a team with a winning conference record. This certainly is not the year Muschamp and the rest of the Gators expected after going 11-2 last season. Death by a thousand season-ending injuries is a slow, painful decline that leaves a team gasping for air. A lack of depth spells trouble in a conference that regularly sends players to the NFL.

14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2013 Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffDamontre Harris poses during Floridas basketball media day. Harris has been limited in the preseason because of a hamstring injury. MENS BASKETBALL LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickThe injury bug continues to wreak havoc on the Gators. Redshirt junior center Damontre Harris (hamstring) and sophomore guard Michael Frazier II (virus) amount of time, coach Billy Donovan said Tuesday. I dont know when Frazier actually got sick, Donovan said. Damontre has been dealing with some hamstring issues a little bit. Even going back to conditioning and stuff, hes kind of worked through it. But I think the trainer wanted to pull him out just because he didnt want to set him back too long. He didnt practice [Monday]. Donovan said Frazier had blood work done and the hope is more would be known by today. Harris has had several setbacks since transferring from South Carolina. He sat out 2012-13 because of NCAA transfer rules but also suffered a torn labrum and battled a sprained ankle and strep throat throughout the course of the season. Frazier and Harris absences hurt the Gators practice depth. UF is already missing forward Will Yeguete (knee) and Rutgers transfer guard Eli Carter (leg). Donovan expects Yeguete to return to practice in a few weeks but in a limited capacity. I would say Will is further along right now, Donovan said. Eli is doing some stuff, non-contact. Anything were doing without contact, hes tried to participate in. But hes still up in the air where hes at and how much longer its going to take him to get back. With Eli and Will being out, were basically down to seven guys. Theres been little rest. Theres not been a lot of depth. To add to the Gators injury woes, the younger Billy Donovan a redshirt junior transfer out of Division III Catholic University is practicing with a torn labrum in his right shoulder that he suffered sometime in August or September. The elder Donovan said his son would try to avoid surgery and play through it. Hes wearing a protective shoulder brace so it doesnt get popped out, the Florida coach said. Hes still able to play, but I know hes in some pain there. During practice, Donovan has seen his team regress defensively. Fatigue from more time on the court due to a lack of healthy players could be a reason why. If there was one disappointing factor its hard for me to say just because we dont have all of our pieces there but we are drastically worse defensively than we were a year ago, Donovan said. centage defense ... where our numbers are at in relationship to where they were last year and some of the things we are charting, is way, way off right now.Injuries hampering UF

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2013 WILLIAMS IS A FRESHMAN.GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandExpectations for incoming freshman Ronni Williams could not be higher. Williams, who was the topranked recruit from the state of Florida in the Class of 2013 accordsignee to be named a McDonalds All-American. She is also the highest-rated recruit signed in program history. A lot of hype surrounds Williams. According to her coach and teammates, it is merited. She has been fantastic, coach Amanda Butler said. As a freshman, shes already established herself as a very important person on this team. UF, Williams was poised to make Floridas limited roster of only 10 players. But with Viktorija Dimaite out for the season after suffering an ACL injury, Williams will be given even more responsibility. She will split time at center with sophomore Christin Mercer. I expect it to go very well, Williams said. Its nothing new. Added Mercer: Ronni, I would say, is going to make a huge impact because she is a great attacker like I am. the offensive scheme Butler is employing this season. With an added emphasis on speed and the transition game, What Ive seen so far is that weve been very consistent, Williams said. Were hard workers. I dont think anybody works as hard as we do. We get after it and we get at it and we get it done. Listed as a forward, Williams is versatile enough to excel at any poIn high school, she recorded 25 rebounds in a single game during her sophomore year, scored 45 points in another game during her junior year and tallied 93 blocks during her senior season. When asked what aspect of the game is her biggest strength, Williams responded: I like to drive a lot. I attack the basket. What impresses Butler the most is the way Williams adjusts to the game and accepts criticism. The thing thats been so amazing about Ronni is not the level of talent and the high level at which shes already able to play, Butler said. Shes so eager, so coachable, and just so easily makes adjustments whether it be in practice or off the court. Ive been really proud of the spirit and energy of a player who is that talented and highly touted.Versatile forward expected to contribute early for Gators SOCCER MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoLauren Silver is proving to be a catalyst when it comes to scoring goals. The outside back topped her previous highest season total in assists after her forward Savannah Jordan score against Mississippi State on Friday. two of them setting up Jordan. Savannah and I kind of developed a pattern the entire season thus far, Silver said. Whenever I get the ball, Im usually looking for her. When we got the ball, I kept wanting it to be switched to my side because I kept looking for Savannah. I knew that if we could give the ball to her, somehow we could get the result that we needed. The junior has had three years to develop her skills as an outside back and get comfortable in offensive situations. In 2012, Silver notched only three assists as coach Becky Burleigh placed greater emthan outside backs producing assists. The Gators scored 54 goals last season, but only one came from an outside back a game-winning score from Taylor Travis against UCF in the NCAA Tournament. Of the 49 assists recorded in 2012, only 10 came from outside backs. With Florida relying heavily on using side backs have produced more offensive plays. Of the 30 goals Florida has scored this season, outside backs have made assists on half of them. When I can talk to [teammates] and develop a relationship with those people to get my job done, as well as help them with theirs, Silver said. Those connections will be critical for the Gators this weekend. Florida faces the top two teams in the Southeastern Conference: LSU and Kentucky. The Wildcats come to Gainesville on Friday with a 5-1 record in the conference. The Tigers, who are 5-0-1 in the SEC, lead the league entering the weekend. Burleigh said she would like to see her outside backs continue to be involved at Our outside backs are actually getting production this year, Burleigh said. Thats a credit to all of them for the work that theyve put in both during practice and outside of practice.Florida to rely on strong defense against tough SEC foesWilliams When I can talk to [teammates] and develop a relationship with it makes it a lot easier to get my theirs.Lauren SilverUF outside back
