Were inept offensively. We have a hard time running it and certainly cant protect very well. Florida, which has already surpassed its loss total from last season, is suffering from several weaknesses on both sides of the ball none more glaring than the recent abysmal play of its offensive line.

Floridas offensive line has allowed 10 sacks and 13 hurries during the past two games, forcing quarterback Tyler Murphy to scramble to make plays countless times. Against far his weakest outing of the season. Kelvin Taylor had his second strong game in a row, rushing 12 times for 74 yards and a touchdown in the loss, but mostly disappeared after breaking a 20-yard touchdown out of the Wildcat formation to pull Florida within six with 46 seconds remaining in the third quarter. We struggle to do anything we try to do, Muschamp said. We try and spread it out and try and throw it, and we cant protect the quarterback. When we try to grind it out, were not getting creating enough some answers, and right now were which began with temperatures in the mid-40s.

The 46-year-old Reitz Union snagged the No. 5 spot on Best College Reviews recently released 25 Most Amazing Campus Student Unions list. Reitz Union Executive Director Eddie Daniels said the Reitzs diversity of unique services and programs such as GatorNights is what makes the Reitz one of the best student unions in the country. Its a nice piece to have out there about the Reitz Union and UF, he said. The list was based on factors such as architectural notability and student satisfaction, according to an online news release. James Arney, the articles author, gave the Reitz a nod for its services, including the game room, the Reitz Union Cinema and the Reitz Union hotel. Arney was unable to be reached for comment. Sarah Frick, executive director of student involvement of the Union expansion and renovation, compared the Reitz to a living room on campus. She said the Reitz received a high rank because its programming is accessible to every student. ing, said the 22-year-old psychology and public relations senior.

CAMPUsS CHERI BAILEYAlligator Contributing WriterStress-relieving therapies may help people cut through the crap. An article published by two UF professors shows alternative treatments to functional bowel disorders. Although research is not conclusive, mind-body treatments such as yoga, hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy and biofeedback were shown to relieve symptoms of functional bowel disorders such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating and constipation. Oliver Grundmann, a clinical assistant professor in the UF College of Pharmacy, and Saunjoo Yoon, associate professor in the College of Nursing, reviewed 19 research studies about complementary or alternative medicine published between June 2002 and June 2012 for eviferent therapies, according to a news release. Although there was not enough evidence to fully support mind-body treatments, hypnotherapy and cognitive behavior therapy showed a relief in symptoms, along with standard treatments such as pharmaceuticals, Grundmann said. Irene Estores, medical director for UF Healths Integrative Medicine Program, said she was familiar with the research. If I were to choose a mind-body therapy for functional disorders, I would probably choose hypnotherapy, Estores said. Based on my understanding of the current literature, I do have a personal interest in hypnosis. Grundmann said in addition to the standard pharmacy drugs that are being used to treat symptoms, some of the alternative therapies improve quality of life for many people. For example, hypnotherapy has shown a long-lasting effect even beyond the initial treatment, he said.Therapies may let LOCAL THOMAS LYNNAlligator Contributing WriterMELROSE, Fla. Watching the Gators struggle against Missouri in the Blue Water Bay restaurant, a Florida Libertarian governor candiAdrian Wyllie hoped to meet with potential voters, but few were found at about 3 p.m. Saturday. Were the underdog, no doubt, Wyllie said. And, quite frankly, winning the election is a long shot, but its a realistic one. Earlier that day at the 1890s Day Festival in McIntosh, about 30 miles south of Melrose, 500 people listened to his plan to protect Florida from an overbearing government. With nearly 800 volunteers and a goal of 1,000 who are dedicated to his cause, Wyllie said he has hope, even though his rumored opponents, like incumbent Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist, can outspend Wyllie, he said. Jot Thompson, who has campaigned for Wyllie, said personal interaction is key. You cant win without going door-to-door, he said. Wyllies platform includes an economic plan that would lower taxes, slash regulations claimed federal government from interfering with the states economy. He is one of two Libertarian candidates registered in the gubernatorial race, which has 21 candidates registered in total, according to the Florida Division of Elections website. Voting in the governors race will begin in the August 2014 primary election.UF engineering students are inspired by the young inventors workreported on the invention. a 24-year-old UF mechanical engineering alumnus and the other creator. The Chill Bit, which attaches to a drill, sells for $15. The Beerouette, a larger, self-powered unit, sells for $35. They can be preordered at spinchill.com, with delivery estimated for November. David Whitney, a UF engineering adjunct professor, recently invited Abbott and Parker to present Spin Chill to his engineering innovation course. It was the perfect example of what I said to students from the moment they stepped foot in engineering innovation, Whitney said. I could see or feel the proverbial lightbulb go off in their heads: This is how innovators do their work. Some people didnt think it would be a hit at all. When Abbott and Parker pitched Spin Chill at a hackathon in Atlanta, it was an unconventional proposal among the ideas. Everybody was talking about all these apps they were gonna make, and I was like, Im gonna make this thing that spins beers to cool them down, Parker said. And nobody wanted to get on the team. But Connor Jacobsen, one of Whitneys students, is recognizing the value of the idea. The 20-year-old UF computer engineering junior said the example shows students can do incredible things.

CAMPUS MELISSA DUKESAlligator Contributing WriterPeanuts kept Jessica Bell from having sleepovers and joining the Girl Scout troops. Bell, a 22-year-old UF dance senior, grew up with a food allergy reaction was when her brother gave her Reeses Pieces when she was 2 years old. Bells parents or grandparents came to her school lunch every day to make sure other students didnt do anything to cause her to have an allergic reaction. College campuses across the country are introducing allergy-safe food stations, and for UF students with food allergies like Bell, Gator Dining Services has taken action to make eating at UF more accessible. Our registered dietitian and food service directors regularly meet with students who identify themselves as having food allergies, gluten intolerances or special dietary needs, Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for Gator Dining Services, wrote in an email. She said over the past several years, there has been a steady increase in students with special dietary needs who are seeking gluten-free dining options. Fresh Food Company and Gator Corner Dining Center have gluten-free pasta, pizza cookies available upon request. Gator Dining has a food-allergy support program that includes training and education for operators, and consumer education and awareness. There are precautions taken during food preparation to avoid cross-contamination, Rodriguez said. Dr. Shih-Wen Huang, head of the allergy clinic in pediatrics at the UF College of Medicine, said peanut allergies are exceptional because they sensitivity. Once you become allergic, it may take a very long time, he said. You have to learn to avoid it. The most common question people ask, Bell said, is if she would have an allergic reaction if someone kissed her after eating peanuts. But the only time her allergies interrupt her day-to-day routine is when she planes. life, she said.Gator Dining keeps allergies in mind THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT REQUIRES EMPLOYERS TO COVER CONTRACEPTIVES. JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Staff Writerjwerley@alligator.orgSome Southern Baptist churches and organizations are suing the government for the Affordable Care Act on the grounds that requiring employers to cover contraceptives is against religious freedom. But Eddie Gilley, director of Gainesville-based Baptist Collegiate Ministries, said local Baptist churches are not involved with the lawsuit. Each church has its own leadership to make decisions independently from other churches, he said. Theyre in a lawsuit because leaders decided to take that action, Gilley said. Its not a contraception issue. Its an abortion issue. Its having the government tell religious organizations they have to, against their belief. But Brittany Langbauer, a 21-year-old UF elementary education senior and longtime Southern Baptist, said the lawsuits seem irrelevant. She said shes never been taught contraceptives are against her religion. We dont believe in abortion, but family planning is responsible, she said. She said the lawsuits could stem from conservative Southern Baptists, who tend to have a negative view of birth control and believe unmarried people will use it to have sex instead of for family planning. Ive been to church my whole life, she said. Ive never been preached against birth control. Langbauer said she didnt see any religious aspect to employers having to cover contraception for employees. Ive never thought of contraception as a religious issue, she said. No one argues against employers covering doctors visits or dental cleanings or any other medication. Thats what I see it as: medication. Kylie Lacusky, the president of UFs branch of Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood, wrote in an email that she does not agree with the churches lawsuits. The affordable care act (sic) is helping a lot of Americans, especially women, and its unfortunate that these churches disagree with that, said the 19-year-old UF history junior. Im not a labor expert, but I do know that contraception coverage is a vital part of preventative care for many women. . Refusing to cover part of an employees basic health care does your employees a great disservice.Gainesville religious groups not affected by Baptist lawsuit

MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Early Thursday morning, President Barack Obama signed a bill that reopened the federal government and avoided a default on our nations debts. Yet again, a manufactured crisis was solved, and our Except they cant. In whats become business as usual on Capitol Hill, the grand agreement devised by lawmakers simply funds the government and raises the debt ceiling until early next year. Hardly a solution to our countrys woes, wouldnt you say? The president himself announced Wednesday evening the nation must stop governing by crisis, and hes right. How can our government expect to survive when it decides to operate just a few months at a time? Its controlled chaos, and if we continue down this path, eventually the manufactured crises will take their toll, and the rest of the world will grow tiresome of our petty and childish ways. If the United States is supposed to be an exceptional nation and is beloved around the world for our freedom, what in the hell happened to those governing us? Fear, anger and despair over lost elections guide a minority turn subject the entire country to their warped sense of living. At this juncture, their only philosophy seems to be if they cant win, no one can. No affordable health care, no reasonable or rational policies that might have a positive effect on anyone, no nothing. If the 2012 election was a referendum on the policies of Obama, he won, and the Tea Party lost. Yet, those on the right refuse to accept the results and instead seem willing to hold the federal government hostage unless they get their way. Is this truly how we want our government to operate? We cannot live in the land of opportunity without a functioning government. Our infrastructure will collapse, the rest of the developed world will view the United States as a has-been, and rapid decline of American democracy will start. Republicans in the Tea Party might think our country can function without government, but tell that to the farmers in the Dakotas desperate for assistance after their cattle perished in a recent blizzard. Tell that to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions furloughed employees, who couldnt track a salmonella outbreak and season arrived amidst a government shutdown. Whether you like it or not, the federal government is a necessity, and regardless of the rhetoric spewed forth from the mouths of Tea Party darlings like Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin, this country will cease to exist without a functioning government. The United States can be a great country, and often times, it has lived up to its billing. However, unless our elected themselves create are not going to lead to prosperity, they will make America exceptional at one thing: failing to be a model of successful representative government. If we remain on the path of manufactured crises, pushed mostly by the minority of a minority party, this great experiment in representative democracy might very well be damned. Whether Republicans want to admit it, Democrats in Congress received 1.4 million more votes in 2012. Tea Partiers might believe they have the freedom to shut the government down when they dont get their way, but their philosophy feels far more like a temper tantrum than democracy. The difference is when children throw tantrums, they usually have an impact that affects their parents and themselves, not the livelihoods of 300 million people. Its up to us as voters, Americans and students who want jobs upon graduation to tell the Tea Party, Republicans, Democrats, independents and any others who may claim to represent the will of the American people to cease their endless charade and 13 years, weve witnessed a contested presidential election, a devastating terrorist attack, two wars, an economic collapse and a nightmarish political situation in Washington. When will the madness end? Were all waiting. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning. His column runs on Mondays.The recent government shutdown symptomatic of larger problemsColumn Weve all been there. We all understand the perpetual struggle of going to an undesirable class at an undesirable time. Even though college students do not always love attending class, we usually end up going because, deep down in our hearts, we know its the right thing to do for our education, future, parents and bank accounts. If you are one of these types of students, however, you should consider not going to class. 1. The kid on Facebook If youre going to scroll mindlessly through your news feed for an hour or stalk an old friend, you might as well stay home. Youll gain absolutely nothing from sitting in a stuffy auditorium if you thoughtlessly look at Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for all of lecture. 2. The kid studying In general, studying is a good thing. If you are going to study for a class during the lecture of another class, however, your time would be better spent walking to the library to study. Studying for a cognitive science midterm is hard if you disparities between the rich and the poor, and youll be hard-pressed to learn about economic inequality 3. The kid talking If you are going to sit and talk to the person next to you for the entire lecture, please do not go to class and force us innocent bystanders to listen to your mindless conversation about the weather. Ava Klein is a writer for the University of California, Berkeleys student newspaper, The Daily Californian. This column originally appeared on UWire.Three people who should skip classUWireAva KleinUWire In 2009, testifying in front of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, then-Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) lation that bans discrimination. He commented it was hard not because he in anyway condones discrimination, but rather that it was hard due to nondiscrimination being so self-evident. ing on at the time was an Employment Non-Discrimination Act bill, which he had introduced to the 110th Congress. Though the bill got plenty of bipartisan support, it was never passed into law. Today, in the land of the free and home of the brave, there is still no piece of federal nied job opportunities based solely on who they are and who they love. My struggle with coming to terms with this is Franks struggle, in that I, too, cannot understand how to go about explaining something so self-evident. Having an employment nondiscrimination law that protects LGBT citizens in every state across this great nation is something that is long overdue, and it has support from more than two-thirds of Americans. Hundreds of companies, including some of our nations nation policies like this in place. There is no uncertainty about what our countrys next step needs to be. This year, U.S. senators will once again be voting on a version of the nondiscrimination act. Activists who have supported this bill for years, senators who are willing to stand up for equality and individuals across America who know this is the right thing to do will inevitably be faced with discriminatory questions that will boggle the mind. All the while, they will wonder how one can support the words of Americas most treasured documents and yet not support a basic piece of nondiscrimination legislation. On Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the UF College Democrats LGBT Caucus will be hosting a day of action at our table on Turlington Plaza in order to highlight the importance of the act. We will be calling Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson and urging them to support the passage of the act. We ask that you stop by the table, make a call and show your support for equality. If this bill does not have a noticeable, direct impact on your life, I can certainly assure you it will have a big impact and be a huge deal to someone who is your friend, loved one, co-worker, neighbor or classmate.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Go online to alligatorSports.org to view a photo gallery from Floridas 36-17 loss to Missouri.Gators in the PollsFlorida fell out of both the AP and USA Today been unranked since the end of the 2011 season. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanCOLUMBIA, Mo. The Gators offensive-line woes do not seem to be improving anytime soon. A week after appearing overmatched in a loss to LSU, the unit was again outworked and outmuscled as No. 22 Florida fell to No. 14 Missouri 36-17 on Saturday in Faurot Field. Were very disappointed, right guard Jon Halapio said. Probably more disappointed this week problems, especially up front, and go from there. Following an underwhelming performance against LSU that saw quarterback Tyler Murphy sacked four times and hurried four times, Florida chose to make changes along the offensive line. D.J. Humphries, the incumbent starter at left tackle, was benched to start the rotated to tackle and reserve Kyle Koehne was inserted into the starting lineup at guard. as the offensive line suffered through its worst performance of the year. as the Gators punchless offense mustered just one touchdown during the game. Were struggling right now to get the right combination, coach Will Muschamp said. Were doing everything we can do. to get better. For Floridas third-year coach, the failures of the offensive line are especially frustrating. Since taking over prior to the 2011 season, he has looked to renovate the unit he once called soft into a foundation for a successful power offense. Entering the 2013 season, he seemingly had succeeded. Florida returned three key cogs from last years unit Halapio, Humphries and center Jon Harrison while adding transfers Tyler Moore and Through seven games this season, that plan has hit a severe snag. I didnt see this happening, Halapio said of the inconsistency that has plagued Floridas offensive line.

Missouri sacked Murphy six times. Gators struggle in trenches TAYLOR LED FLORIDA IN RUSHING YARDS. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanCOLUMBIA, Mo. Kelvin Taylor continues to shine for a Gators offense that has had few bright spots during the past two weeks. Taylor, a freshman running high 74 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries during No. 22 Floridas 36-17 loss to No. 14 Missouri on Saturday at Faurot Field. He did a good job of hitting the hole and getting to the second level, quarterback Tyler Murphy said. He did a good job making a few guys miss and getting us to the end zone. Taylor, who carried the football 10 times for 52 yards against LSU in place of running back Matt Jones (knee), accounted for nearly half of Floridas offense on Saturday. 151 yards against a stout Missouri defense. His third-quarter touchdown a 20-yard plunge that came when he took a handoff from Trey Burton out of the Wildcat package was with 46 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Kelvins a natural, instinctive runner, coach Will Muschamp said. With Jones out for the season after suffering a torn meLSU, Florida has split carries between Taylor and redshirt junior Mack Brown. Against Missouri, Brown was much less effective, carrying the ball eight times for just 19 yards a 2.4 yards per carry average that was less than half of Taylors 6.2 yards per attempt. I see a lot of growth out of him, right guard Jon Halapio said of Taylor. Hes been very productive in practice. Hes got great vision and everything. He had a game. Just wish we could have did a better job for him. Safety ejected: Few topics draw the ire of Muschamp like the NCAAs new targeting rule. For the second time this season, he and the Gators were forced to deal with its consequences.Halfback leads weak UF offense Theres no denying it now. The Gators arent very good. Gone is the swagger the team carried last year. Instead, there is crippling uncertainty on both sides of the ball. This is about more than three lossabout an attitude adjustment needed in Gainesville. Its time to get mean. Missouri pushed Florida around on Saturday. The Gators offense was inept, as coach Will Muschamp described. The defense looked like it was still wrought with jet lag. It was embarrassing. This season has been embarrassing. Florida is supposed to be one of the top programs in the Southeastern Conference if not the country. Its muddling in mediocrity.

The forward controlled the ball and sank her shot into the left corner from 16 yards out to give the Gators a 2-0 lead at halftime. Our team has been playing great these last couple games, moving the ball really well, Jordan said. I think it just opened up for me today, and I was excited to get the goals. Jordans pair of goals puts her at 15 scored this season and in 2013. Jordan said she used some of the techniques she learned during her U-18 National Team training last week. The level of competition down there really pushed me even further, Jordan said. I learned some technical things and Ive tried to apply those in the game this weekend. The freshman was not the only one who met the high level of competition and physicality LSU The Gators found more opportunities as the games physicality increased in the second half.

ALLIGATOR, 15Jordan McPherson / Alligator ERICA A. HERNANDEZAlligator Writer @EricaAlyssa A combination of team and individual errors led to Conference loss of 2013. Missouri dominated Florida on Sunday in Columbia, Mo., as the Gators lost in four sets, 23-25, 23-25, 25-23, 18-25. Penn State swept the Gators on Sept. 8. They are not the leading team in the country in hitting percentage by mistake, UF said of Missouri before the match. They are really good at what they do. Missouris .303 hitting percentage and only 14 attack errors easily surpassed Floridas hitting clip of .237 and 24 errors. Although the Gators had eight service aces the Tigers recorded nine they also committed seven serving errors. It was a close match, coach Mary Wise said in a postgame radio interview.

What a baller, Wise said. [Kan is] a game changer. In the second set, two attack errors from sophomore early lead. The Gators were behind by as many as eight points.

Anything is possible, Dante Fowler Jr. said. I dont feel like anything is out of reach. Anything can happen. Were just going to keep going out there and keep playing football and who knows what could happen? If UFs suddenly porous defense does not improve, nothing good will happen. Floridas usually dependable unit collapsed against Missouri. Anyone who arrived late to the game was in jeopardy of missing the start of Missouris offensive outpouring. Mauk completed a pass to LDamian Washington down the scrimmage for a gain of 41 yards. tiating helmet-to-helmet contact with Washington while attempting to dislodge the ball on the play. Floridas already depleted defense, which lost starters Ronald Powell and Damien Jacobs to injury during the week, grew thinner almost immediately. Mauk found Bud Sasser for a 20yard touchdown on the next play to set the tone just 22 seconds into the 36 passing for 295 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Were all looking for answers right now, Jaylen Watkins said. After Missouris opening drive, the Tigers leaned on tailback Henry Josey to shoulder the load. For the second consecutive game, an opposing running back shredded Floridas rushing defense. 136 yards and a touchdown. Prior to last week at LSU, Florida had allowed just one ball carrier Georgias Todd Gurley to gain at least 100 yards on the ground since the start of the 2012 season. Josey is now the second back in as many weeks to eclipse the mark. LSUs Jeremy Hill gashed the Gators for 121 yards on Oct. 12. Weve never seen the scoreboard lit up like that on us the past two years, Watkins lamented. Floridas defense had two golden opportunities in the second half to redeem an otherwise disastrous day. Solomon Patton returned the opening kick after halftime for a to 13-10.
