BRADLEY NORMANAlligator Staff WriterRabbi Adam Grossman has been working as the executive director and CEO of UF Hillel since July 7 and is now serving as the organizations active rabbi. Grossman, 38, took on the role of rabbi after former rabcepted a job in Texas, according to her farewell statement. Grossman said his mission as CEO and acting rabbi is to connect with students on campus and inspire them to zation. Grossman, formerly the associate rabbi at the Temple Israel in Memphis, said he is working toward changing the way people view Hillel. For the last seven weeks we have done a lot of redesigning and reimagining on the indoor space and ultimately on how we can transmit ourselves to the greater community, he said. One of the things were really trying to do is be a partner a partner with the greater community, a partner with the university, a partner with students. Allan Goldberg, UF Hillel Board of Directors president, said its a great challenge keeping up with Grossman and all his ideas. Goldberg was a member of the selection committee responsible for hiring Grossman. Rabbi Grossman is a very energetic and entrepreneurial leader, he said. Hes basically turning the Hillel world on its head, making some major changes and looking at some different opportunities for Hillel to broaden itself to a larger group of students than it typically has, Goldberg added. Goldberg said Grossmans entrepreneurial spirit inspired the decision to hire him as UF Hillels new CEO and later appoint him as its rabbi. Scott Raileanu, UF Hillels director of operations and engagement, knew Grossman when he served as an associate rabbi at Raileanus home congregation and joined Grossmans team after he personally recruited him. He was pretty much a religious and spiritual mentor for me and sort of a life mentor for me, Raileanu said. Raileanu said Grossmans passion and desire succeed is evident after working with him. Theres going to be no stone unturned by Adam Grossman to make Hillel successful and make the students that walk in our doors have a meaningful experience.UF Hillel appoints CEO Grossman as acting rabbi Grossman C AMPUS ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff Writer Campus was quiet after students left for the summer, yet the sounds of drilling continued as UFs major construction projects moved along. The Reitz Union is in the construction and renovation phase of its $75 million redesign. Cydney McGlothlin, UF Planning, Design & Construction project manager, said steel was put up and concrete work was completed. The Reitz Union Rion Ballroom is the basement, which will hold the dance studios, a computer lab and an emergency hurricane shelter. Its going really well, McGlothlin said. We can see a big difference. The construction of Cypress Hall, a future residence hall on the corner of Southwest 13th Street and Museum Road, is progressing well, said Sharon Blansett, assistant to the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs.

Her dad had to take time off from work to help her move her stuff and is going to drive up again when she moves into her apartment. Natalie Pan, a 17-year-old UF nutritional sciences freshman, said the worst part is she cant buy groceries while shes at the hotel because theres no fridge. Pan said shes staying optimistic but isnt that worried if she has to stay in the hotel past next Wednesday. I dont mind it, Pan said. I love hotels.

ACADEMICS EMILY CARDINALIAlligator Staff Writerecardinali@alligator.orgJames Horvath, a master lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, is no longer teaching General Chemistry 2, or CHM2046, this semester. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences decided to restrict the multi-decade instructor to only working in Chemistry 1 and Chemistry 2 labs. It is not unusual for someones teaching assignments to change at UF, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes wrote in an email. In this case, the Chemistry Department decided it does not need Dr. Horvath as a lecturer in the year ahead. As a result, he will be able to focus on his laboratory duties. Collin Zeng, a 19-year-old UF biology sophomore and one of Horvaths teaching assistants, said he thinks Horvath should at least be available to those students who wish to truly learn chemistry in-depth, so he created a petition on addressed to the Department of Chemistry asking for Horvath to regain lecturing privileges. Students have had mixed reactions: Some vehemently support Horvath, and some think the department made the right decision. Grant Sinnott, a 19-year-old UF economics and mathematics sophomore, said that as an executive secretary in Student Government, he heard complaints about the class and conducted an in-depth review of the class. Based on the research, the decision made sense, he said. standardization, he said. We felt like in a general educational class, you should receive the same education. Its not fair for one professor to teach certain chapters and others to teach something different. Sinnott examined the syllabuses for the chemistry classes and noticed some outliers and discrepancies in what is taught in the class. Horvaths class was an outlier. Horvath wrote in an email, The real issue is about all students studying in American institutions of higher learning not me. Chemical engineering sophomore Jacob Cottrell had Horvath in the Spring for Chem 2 and chose him purposefully even though he istry. Chemistry is not easy, so Im not going to make it any easier than it is, and he stuck true to that, the 19-year-old said. He would explain a really weird concept, and at the end, he would laugh about it and ask, Isnt that really amazing, guys? As of press time, the petition had 378 supporters. stories about himself, and he concludes the class with a review, Zeng said.

Since then, euthanasia rates have plummeted 90 percent. Its a milestone for us, said Sandi Richmond, the organizations director. The seven-member team operates four days a week, offering cat services for $50 and dog services for $80. The charge covers the operation, anesthesia and pet pain medication. Richmond said other services include rabies and distemper vaccinations, feline leukemia and AIDS shots, heartworm tests, nail trims The shelter is currently offering free microchip services. We want to take away those large expenses from you and make it affordable, Richmond said. No More Homeless Pets recently received a grant that will enable the organization to offer 400 free spay and neuter services to qualifying, low-income Alachua County residents starting this September, she said. The free services will be available to students on Federal Pell Grants basis. There is a limit of two pets per qualifying household.

Confronted several times by hecklers demanding immigration reform, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio told attendees at a Republican fundraising barbecue that no country has been more generous to people from elsewhere than the United States. Rubio, whose parents left Cuba in the 1950s, mentioned his childhood as part of a family of immigrants during his keynote address at the fourth annual Faith and Freedom BBQ fundraiser hosted by U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-South Carolina. The event in Anderson, the states conservative northwestern corner, has become a go-to stop for Republicans with strong natenders. U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, headlined last years event. Rubio has been trying to recover from his failed push for an immigration law overhaul, now seen as a political misstep. He helped write the bipartisan immigration overhaul that passed the Senate but stalled in the House as some Republicans balked. Conservatives grew wary of the measure, and the Republican-led House signaled that the comprehensive Senate plan would go nowhere. The Florida Republican also stressed the importance of innovative educational programs, saying a four-year college degree isnt necessary for middle class success. I dont know why we have stigmatized vocational and career education, Rubio said. We need more programs that help people graduate from high school and get ready to go into one of these professions.Rubio boosts SC Republicans Horvath Were working to be a no-kill animal shelter by 2015.Sandi RichmonddirectorR ubio

The sale runs through Friday. RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Staff Writerrcrosby@alligator.orgAlachua County Animal Services will have free adoptions for the next week. The $100K Challenge, sponsored by celebrity chef Rachael Ray and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, invites shelters nationwide to compete for the most free adoptions in return for cash prizes, depending on staff size and capacity. Nine other shelters are in the same division as Alachua County Animal Services. Since the shelter began participating in June, more than 1,000 animals have been adopted. Right now were tied for second or close to second, said director Vernon Sawyer. Sawyer said if the shelter wins money, the funds will go toward new dog toys, expanded play areas and increased community awareness about pet adoption. Throughout the past 10 years, Sawyer said the shelter has increased its adoptions by about 90 percent. A portion of those saved lives are due to the numerous rescue organizations in Gainesville, such as the Alachua County Humane Society. The Humane Societys director, Amanda Burks, said the organization has been working with the shelter for the past 13 years. Staff members adopt animals that are at risk of being put down. We normally get about 50 each month from animal services, Burks said. The majority about 90 percent or more are pulled from their euthanasia list. As adoption rates soar, euthanasia among animals declines, said Burks, who attributes the shelters success to organizations like No More Homeless Pets and Operation Catnip. Both groups work to spay and neuter pets and feral cats. Alachua County Animal Services is also up for a $25,000 community involvement award, and the winner is determined by social media votes. Sawyer said locals can vote at We adopted out about 100 animals this weekend, but there was a day a couple months ago where we got 70 animals in one day, Sawyer said.

A recent Gallup poll found that a whopping 83 percent of Americans disapprove of the federal legislatures performance. In another poll, Gallup found that just 19 percent of Americans believe most members of Congress deserve to be re-elected, nearly a historic low. Clearly, the overwhelming majority of the American people feel Congress is not adequately representing their interests. sive, representative Congress is the practice of gerrymandering. The U.S. Constitution mandates that congressional districts must be redrawn every 10 years. The power to redraw these districts is granted to the state legislatures. In theory, redistricting is designed to create districts that accurately represent the constituents of a state. Unfortunately, the majority party in the state legislature often uses redistricting as political party, is known as gerrymandering. Florida is an excellent example of how gerrymandering obstructs and perverts the democratic process. In Florida, 39 percent of registered voters are Democrats, 35 percent Republicans. Despite the nearly equal distribution of voters between the two major parties, Republicans hold 17 of the states 27 House seats to the Democrats 10. Gerrymandering has a major effect on congressional representation. In 2012, Congressional Democrats received about a million more votes nationwide than did Republicans. Despite the Democrats advantage in the overall vote count, Republicans currently hold a 234-199 majority in the House. Republican control of the House is largely a result of gerrymandering by Republican-dominated state legislatures. Unfortunately, an opportunity to curtail the destructive gerrymandering process in Florida was squandered this month. In July, Terry P. Lewis, a judge in Leon County, ruled Floridas new congressional districts unconstitutional, calling them a mockery of the redistricting process. Lewis suddenly and sharply reversed course on Friday, approving new congressional maps that contained only mild, suLewis approval of these districts ensures that Floridians will continue to be inaccurately represented on Capitol Hill. Gerrymandering isnt solely a Republican problem; Democrats have engaged in the same behaviors previously and likely will do so again given the opportunity. However, the degree and scope of Republican gerrymandering over the past several years has helped to produce a Congress that looks nothing like the people it is meant to represent. Ending gerrymandering wont bring an end to the ineffectiveness of Congress. But appointing nonpartisan commissions in each state to redraw districts would be a major step toward a more representative and responsive federal government. 124 TOTAL VOTES21% YES 79% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgMondays question: Did you get the bursars email about losing your direct deposit account information? Todays question: Did you vote in the primaries? In Defense of the Ice Bucket ChallengeJust a couple of weeks ago, I logged into my Facebook and saw that I was tagged in a friends status. It was a video of someone pouring a bucket of ice water all over herself and nominated me, along with a few others, to participate in something called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I remember feeling quite confused about a couple of things. First, and Im embarrassed to admit this I had no idea what ALS even was. Second, what did soaking yourself with ice water have to do with anything? My attention was held for only a few moments before I lost interest and continued binge-watching Mad Men on Netdid I feel any connection to the cause my friends video was promoting. Eventually, I became one of those people who went from ignoring the Ice Bucket Challenge to downright it was raising money and awareness for. All I knew was ice water dumped on them, and, quite frankly, I was tired of it. Another one bites the dust, I would think, feeling proud of myself for not succumbing to peer pressure like everyone else. Besides, wouldnt donating money be more effective than posting a silly video on your social media account? What was the point? After just a few moments of research, I was no longer ignorant about the devastating effects of ALS. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a horrifying neurodegenerative disease that slowly and painfully robs its victims of the ability to control their muscles, speak, swallow and even breathe. Also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease, ALS comes in stages, each more devastating than the next, and usually results in death from respiratory failure within a few years. As I scrolled through various descriptions of the disease online, I could feel my heart racing when I tried to imagine how it must feel to be diagnosed. And then, as I continued to learn about ALS and the desperate need for research funding, I felt an uncomfortable emotion well up inside of me: shame. I felt shame for rolling my eyes at everyone posting videos of the Ice Bucket Challenge. I felt shame for sarcastically remarking that throwing ice water on yourself doesnt raise money. Most of all, I felt shame for self-righteously deciding that ALS wasnt worth all the hype. According to an ALS Association press release, there have been more than $70 million donated from July 29 to Aug. 24, compared to only $2.5 million raised during the same time period last year. But even if the Ice Bucket Challenge hadnt succeeded in raising millions of dollars for ALS research, everyone who participates is performing a compassionate service. The people affected by ALS must have an incredible amount of courage to face a disease with no cure or treatment. At the very least, the rest of us can bring attention to their hardship. The Ice Bucket Challenge gives us a way to talk about ALS and acknowledge the struggle of those living with it. If it werent for the challenge, many people wouldnt have become informed about the devastating nature of ALS, myself included. To the ice bucket haters: Dont be so hasty to dismiss something that brings hope and encouragement to so many people. Though the Ice Bucket Challenge might seem silly on its face, these viral stunts have the potential to inspire powerful and meaningful action. Moriah Camenker is a public relations senior.

THEY TYPICALLY TARGET BUSINESS OWNERS. MELISSA MIHMAlligator Staff WriterGainesville Regional Utilities is warning business owners about a recent phone scam. Herb Firsching, a director at GRU, said scammers generally target restaurant owners. Scammers will call during lunch hours when they are busiest, he said. They demand that the restaurant purchase a disposable debit card and make a payment within 45 minutes or be at risk of having their power shut off. Firsching said the scam demands payment that is typically more than each customers balance, so businesses should check their statements before believing the calls. Customers who suspect a scam should contact GRU directly before making a payment. Firsching said GRU never demands payment over customers about their power being shut off through a letter in the mail. Firsching said GRU has sent out warning emails and is in the process of making an automated phone message regarding the scam on their customer service hotline. Gainesville Police spokesscams are common and that the issue is not limited to GRU.

Karen Smith, CSI Academy director of forensic education, said there has been a surge of interest in the forensic science program. A lot of students had asked for a handson component since its an online program, she said. Three students have signed up for the course so far, and about 1,000 students are enrolled in the online masters program. Ian Tebbett, associate dean of the College of Pharmacy, worked with the academy to get the curriculum completed for the Fall course. Tebbett said the 14-year-old online graduate program in forensic science is one of the largest. Its an opportunity for students who have bachelors degrees and work in law enforcement to get a masters with UF without having to quit their jobs and relocate, he said.

Read the story on Page 14 THEY WILL REPLACE CHLOE MANN. EDEN OTEROAlligator Staff Writer@edenotero_lWith a strong backline that consists of three veteran players, there is little doubt that Floridas defense can hold its own. But what about its offense? With the graduation of Chloe Mann, Florida loses its most productive scorer and the NCAA record (.476). While coach Mary Wise recognizes the improbability of replacing Mann, she said junior Simone Antwi, sophomore Shainah Joseph and 6-foot-4 freshman Rhamat Alhassan are more than capable of covering the position. It would be unfair to them to ask them to pick up exactly where Chloe left off offensively, Wise said, but there are signs of what they may be able to do in blocking thats further than Chloe was at this time. The trio may not be at Manns level yet, but Alhassans height, Antwis breakout sophomore year and Josephs fast progression in collegiate play could prove to be lethal against opponents. In 2013, Antwi started all 32 matches and completed the year with a .377 hitting percentage and 3.07 points per set while leading the team with 96 blocks. Her junior status gives Florida at least another year with the players and allows the two other middle blockers Alhassan and Joseph time to learn how to connect on the court before she leaves. Both Alhassan and Joseph are Alligator File PhotoSimone Antwi swings at the ball during Floridas 3-2 loss to Floirda State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Dec. 6. JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Alex McCalister plans to make the most of his 7-foot-2 wingspan. My long arm pass rush is my golden ticket, the redshirt sophomore said. Theres not a lot of people that can stop that. To do that, the defensive lineman out of Clemmons, N.C., has watched tape on a variety of players who have a similar technique. J.J. Watt, the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year who has 36.5 career sacks of professional football. Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL team All-America and AllSoutheastern Conference team selection. Barkevious Mingo, who paced LSU with 12 quarterback hurries and tallied 8.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks in 2012 before becoming a Cleveland Browns. Now, McCalister and the rest of Floridas defense is shifting its focus to Idaho and Saturdays 2014 season debut. Getting into Idaho, getstart seeing stuff starting to condense and slow down, McCalister said.

With top players Dominique Easley and Damien Defensive line prepares for season opener against IdahoMiddle blockers vying for playing time LAWRENCE LAGUNAAlligator Writer@LagunaLawrence With the preseason and two regular season games in the record books, one thing is certain: The Florida soccer club has depth. That depth throughout the 25-member roster is what will drive them for the duration of the season. One of the things thats a real positive about this team is our depth, coach Becky Burleigh said. I think we will continue to see that grow as the season goes on. Since the preseason, the Gators have shown how their practice has molded the team to play as a whole instead of individually. When the team plays as a unit, results are generated, but once an individual decides to manage the gameplay solo, things fall apart. During Sundays match against South Florida, Florida caught itself in a situation that could result in future mishaps if repeated throughout the season. There was a period in the beginning of the second half where we sort of started to play more individually and thats just not our DNA, thats not what our team functions on, Burleigh said. Making sure that we stick to the plan and trust that process. Remaining with that original game plan is what boosted Florida to a 2-0 start to the season. Only six of the 25 players on the roster have not appeared in a minute yet due to either injury or freshman inexperience. One of those six players is senior Karina Gutsche, who has been out with an MCL sprain. Burleigh does not expect her to be back for this weekends matchups against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The timeline, we sort of look at it dayprogressing. Shes doing some running and things like that now, but its one of those things we just have to take our time with because shes a big piece of what we do and the way that she plays is entirely physical. So we want to make sure that she is really ready to go and we dont put her in a situation where we jeopardize a longerterm injury. The other 19 players have consistently rotated between both games, but the starters have still logged the majority of the minutes.

Jacobs now in the NFL, redshirt senior Leon Orr, senior Darious Cummings and juniors Dante Fowler Jr. and Jon Bullard will provide leadership and experience for the group. Last season, the quartet combined for 119 tackles (20.5 for loss), 8.5 sacks and 13 quarterback hurries. Theyve been in our program, they understand the expectation how we need to play on defense here, Muschamp said. I feel good about us continuing to build that depth. Redshirt sophomore Bryan Cox Jr., sophomore Joey Ivie and redshirt freshmen Jay-nard Bostwick and Caleb Brantley in addition to McCalister will receive playing time as well. We feel much better right now about being able to roll guys like we like to up front, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. Were going to do that, and we feel good about the ability to do that because of how theyve done through camp. Muschamp also said true freshman Gerald Willis, the No. 6 defensive end recruit in the 2014 class according to and one of Florithe defensive line, will see season. Hes going to play. How much, I dont know right now, Muschamp said. Assignment wise he needs to be on top of things in what were trying to do and the communication of that. fresh to collegiate play Joseph only played in four matches her freshman year and Alhassan, originally a basketball player, began playing volleyball in her junior year of high school. With the two players limited experience, Florida will have to focus heavily on the defense to give the two players a chance to learn the game, and Wise has already recognized it. If (Sundays) scrimmage is any indication, this team is going to dig a lot of balls, Wise said. The offense was really good, but the defense really outshined them in terms of the number of balls that were kept in play. The use of three seniors libero Taylor Unroe and defensive specialists Holly Pole and Maddy Monserez on the back line in addition to junior Nikki ORourke will and will move Florida away from its previous approach of a dominating offense to a faster and stronger defensive game. Going forward, Wise said the focus for the middle blockers is to just help the younger players learn the game. But the team is focused heavily could completely change Floridas offense: The raw potential that is Alhassan. The freshman will still see a sigcause of her height. The Glenarden, Md., native is the tallest player in the history of Florida volleyball and has a big jump to add to that height. Our video coordinator brought in video this morning of a play she made where she literally is chest high above the tape, Wise said. There are so few women in the country that can make that play. You could argue there arent that many in the world. 180 minutes this season. But the bench is what has kept the team stable on Friday and Sunday. Theres going to be players that will continue to emerge as the season goes on, Burleigh said. We are starting way ahead of where we started last year at this point. The fact that were getting contributions on a regular basis from our bench is only going to help us in the long haul of the season. Another contribution to the teams depth has been a mixture of scoring. It started with forward Jillian Graff, who scored the sixth Gator player to have a double-goal game in a season opener. Graff also recorded the fourth fastest seasonopening goal for UF and the fastest since 1999. As a result, she earned a share of the Southeastern Conference Co-Offensive Player Of The Week award alongside Georgias Gabby Seiler. Speese also found the back of the net in the opening weekend. Jordan turned in the third goal of the night versus Miami, and Speese had a double-goal game herself against USF. I think anyone on this team can start, Graff said. We really have great depth on the bench and what it comes down to is coachs decision, but were all capable of doing it.
