Appointed in May, a search committee was formed with the expectacandidates to vie for the position of UFs 12th president. The committee is now asking for input in its search process by Friday. In an email, search committee chair Steven Scott asked that the UF community answer two questions on the search criteria of previous presidential searches. To provide input, students and staff can visit the presidential search website. The feedback will form the framework for future discussions with candidates, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. All of the pieces have to come together in order to formally launch the search for a new president, Sikes said. The search committee will meet Sept. 5 to review and consider the responses. All committee meetings will be live-streamed and archived. An advertisement for President Bernie Machens position will be placed in The Chronicle for Higher Education.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 SCIENCE DANIELA PRIZONT-CADOAlligator Contributing WriterFour North Carolina State University students have hit the nail on the head with their invention. The materials science and engineering students have created a nail polish to help detect if colorless, odorless compounds are being used to drug drinks. The nail polish, named Undercover Colors, changes color when common date-rape drugs such as Rohypnol, Xanax and GHB, have been slipped into drinks. Women can identify the drug by sticking According to UF Health, about one in three American women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. Ive never seen someone put something in someones drink, but Ive been with people who have thought someone did, said UF telecommunication sophomore Sami Wax, 19. And that is very scary. Similar preventative products have been made available to the public, including coasters that change colors, said Rita Lawrence, GatorWells interpersonal violence prevention coordinator. [Its] not just women who are sexually assaulted, it could happen to anyone, she said. Lawrence said the nail polish can be part of a strategy against date rape, but awareness is key. Allyson Montoya, a 19-year-old UF English junior, said she would consider buying the nail polish when it becomes available to the public. If they have that with them, its almost like carrying a weapon with you, Montoya said.Nail polish exposes date-rape drugs MELISSA MIHMAlligator WriterA Gainesville man was arrested Tuesday following a heated argument between neighbors. Javontea Antonio Black, 18, was charged with aggravated assault and throwing a deadly missile after police say he yelled at and threatened to kill his neighbor and her friend, located at 6025 NW 23rd Terrace. As the argument escalated, Black walked across the victims houses, throwing it at them. The victims went inside and shut the door as the pot shattered next to them, according to the Gainesville Police arrest report. After entering a different apartment, Black picked up a metal pipe and returned to the victims, saying Ill kill you, b****. After throwing the metal pipe at GPD found Black several blocks away and arrested him. While on the way to jail, Black kicked the patrol cars windows. He was put into a RIPP restraint, which belts the hands and feet, but managed to get out of it. After beating his head against the window, the next time he sees her. ITS AT 8 P.M.

SCREAM (Students Challenging Realities and Educating Against Myth) Theater will host a night of 30-minute skits in collaboration with Gator Wesley as part of its welcome back week activities. Since 1991, SCREAMS skits cover topics prevalent to college campuses, ranging from sexual assault and domestic violence to bullying. The skits will then be followed by a Q-and-A segment with the actors remaining in character. Evan Morris, a 20-year-old UF marketing junior, is an intern at Gator Wesley, the United Methodist Campus Ministry. Morris saw SCREAMs production last year with Gator Wesley at the United Methodist Seminar program in New York City. Its frightening to see, and theyre all really good actors, Morris said. You feel like youre actually there. Morris said SCREAM shows the reality of sexual assault on college campuses through its performances. It has been organizing and performing these skits since 1991. Narcie Jeter, the executive director at Gator Wesley, said she wanted to bring the production to UF and Santa Fe College campuses after seeing the production last August with Gator Wesley in New York City. We thought nothing could be better than if we shared the SCREAM Theaters presentation, as well as additional UF resources, Jeter said.

sage every couple of weeks, or about 20 to 30 pounds a day, said Mark Rodriguez, a kitchen manager at Satchels. Rodriguez said he thinks the new sausage is a better quality product. I think it goes along with the idea of the restaurant, Rodriguez said. Satchels is a pretty big supporter of buying local and doing things locally. Aside from pizzas, calzones and salads, Satchels started serving homemade sodas about a year ago. Dennis Stoltzfoos, the owner of Full Circle Farm, calls local farming a lost art. Unlike most commercial farms, Full Circle moves its hogs through different wooded areas instead of keeping them in pens. Evmove to a new half-acre lot. No cages, no concrete and no processed food.

Full Circle supplies pork to about three other businesses but is quickly growing. farming, Stoltzfoos said hes seen a steady growth in demand for local products. Seems like the word is spreading, he said. Nationwide, the number of farmers markets has increased about 76 percent since 2008, according to the USDA study. The increase indicates a continued demand and growth of local farmers markets and locally produced food throughout the country. C.W. Phillips, the owner of C and J Farms, said he believes the difference between his product and bigger corporations is in the raising of the hogs. He said theres no processed food or growth hormones involved in his operation. C and J Farms supplies each ranging from orders of month. It may take a little longer, but he said its a lot like taking steroids when you work out. Youll bulk up faster, but not in the good way. Youve got to eat natural stuff, he said. Phillips said he worries about what will happen if local farmers were unable to compete with corporations.

RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Staff Writerrcrosby@alligator.orgAs Florida voters face an amendment that could legalize medical marijuana this November, a study suggests it could lower rates of painkiller abuse. The research found that deaths associated with opiate abuse fell in 13 states after they legalized medical use of marijuana, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Associations Internal Medicine. just days after the federal govizing new restrictions on drugs that contain hydrocodone, a highly addictive painkiller and now the most-prescribed drug. Yes, opioid overdoses are a national problem, said Dr. Scott Teitelbaum, a UF psychiatry professor and medical director of the Florida Recovery Center, a rehab clinic at UF Health. They dont heal a wound. They change the brains perception of pain. But is the solution pot? I dont think so. Teitelbaum said the study shows a correlation between the decline in opioid-related overdoses and medical marijuana, but it does not prove medical marijuana legalization caused the decline. There are many factors that werent considered in the study, he said, like when the medical marijuana laws were implemented in each state and whether the decline could be attributed to the use of opioid blockers, which treat addiction. This is kind of jumping from A to Z, Teitelbaum said. In Florida, prescription drugs are present in more drugrelated deaths than illegal substances are, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement records, but it said drugs are not limited to opioids. State records show opioidrelated deaths decreased between 2011 and 2012, according to the most recent report available. Records also showed that marijuana was one of the most commonly present substances in drug-related deaths, but it never was the cause of deaths. But research on marijuana at UF is still up in the air. Even if medical marijuana is legalized in Florida this November, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the university cannot conduct medical marijuana research because UF relies heavily on federal funding, and the drug is still illegal in the federal realm. Per federal law, Sikes said the university can apply for permits to conduct medical marijuana research but cannot grow or cultivate the plant. I am aware of at least one researcher who plans to conduct research on medical marijuana at some point in the future, Sikes wrote in an email. We have conducted research on other regulated drugs in the past. These researchers must comply with federal regulations about how that is done.Marijuana might reduce painkiller abuse, study saysCRIME THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTAMPA A 911 dispatcher is in trouble over his response to a mother who called for help after her 10-month-old son accidentally locked himself in her car, police said. Shana Dees said she put her son Jack in his car seat Saturday afternoon, and when she went to move a shopping cart, Jack hit the lock button on the keychain remote, The Tampa Tribune reported. She called 911 because it was hot inside the car and said she was shocked by the dispatchers response. We wont be able to try and gain access to the car unless the child is in some kind of distress, Dees said the dispatcher told her. And by that point, they may just smash your windows. And then he hung up. Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy said the departments protocol regarding a child locked in a car is to always send scene. The dispatcher didnt even ask the location of the vehicle. McElroy said disciplinary action could range from a written reprimand to a suspension. called 911 and spoke to a different dispatcher who sent help. In the meantime, a nurse grabbed a wrench from the stores utility closet and smashed the window. By then, Jack had been inside the car for 15 minutes. The nurse got the boy out and poured cool water over his head. Dees said she and her husband thanked the nurse, but they didnt get his name. He acted when nobody else did, and were very grateful he did that, she said. Jack has rebounded, but hes no longer allowed to play with car keys.911 botches call of baby locked in car He acted when nobody else did, and were very grateful he did that.Shana DeesTampa citizen

There are other problems. As hinted in the quote above, drug-facilitated rapes make up an extremely small percentage of rapes overall. Even then, the drug most commonly used in these rapes is alcohol, which seems counterintuitive given that the nail polish is meant primarily to test alcoholic drinks. In addition, pinning responsibility on the victim may actually lead to more victim blaming when sexual assault does occur. This wouldnt have happened if you were These issues are important to keep in mind, but these arguments will be fully valid only in theory until the ideological framework that has allowed rape to pervade our society is dismantled. also realize that the problem of sexual assault and rape in our society is far from being resolved.

In a letter to President Barack Obama, Rubio said the presidents newly proposed executive actions on immigration would close the door to any chance of making progress on immigration reform for the foreseeable future. Rubio is correct in saying the prospects for immigration reform are grim, but blaming that on Obama is simply ludicrous. moderate.

Among other ignorant statements, King once said that for every undocumented immigrant who becomes a high school valedictorian, there are 100 with calves the size of cantaloupes because theyre hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. Despite Kings fearmongering, the reality is that the overwhelming majority of undocumented immigrants have much more benevolent motivations.

Yet thousands of people continued to pour into First Magnitude Brewing Companys brewery barn, where beer and good company took precedence over sweating. After more than two years of planning, FM Brewery, 1220 SE Veitch St., opened its doors and served the public Saturday, enjoying an opening more grand than expected. It was amazing. Better than we could have dreamed of, as cheesy as that sounds, Meg The Losen, FM Brewery president, said. The doors opened at 2 p.m., and en was getting texts from her team saying the parking lot was already full. Soon the line was out the door and stayed that way throughout the day. magnitude springs of North Central Florida, FM Brewery started out as just an idea in March 2012, when four friends talked about opening a brewery together in Gainesville. Head brewer and former associate director of the UF Honors program, John Denny, had been telling his students to follow their dreams for more than 13 years. Knowing he would live with regret if he didnt follow his own, advice and moved forward with opening a brewery. It was as good of a start as I can imagine, he said. Im very grateful for all the support. Throughout the opening weekend, he and his partners, including his wife, Christine Denny, The Losen and her husband, Wells The Losen, sold about 3,000 beers, serving more than 1,500 people. They even ran out of a few of their specialty beers. FM Brewery has high hopes for the future, like selling to restaurants and creating a beer garden with outdoor seating, live music and old-fashioned games like ring toss. But even nearer is the excite2014 football season, even though the brewery doesnt have a great sense of what to expect. It will be a very different game than what Im accustomed to, John Denny said. I hope people come and enjoy the game with us. The brewery will be open Saturday from 2 to 9 p.m., and it plans to have a large TV broadcasting the game. Ameraucana Wood Fire food truck will serve food, the bar will be fully staffed and legal-sized ers to take to tailgates. FM Brewery will also have =its own labeled growlers.

The Gainesville-bred, ska-punk rockers of Less Than Jake will kick off their third annual Wake and Bake weekend, a two-day-long festival that attracts fans from as close as UF to as far as England. Wake and Bake, according to Alligator archives, began two years ago as an intimate gathering for Less Than Jakes family, friends and local fans. The festival has grown considerably in popularity since then, attracting super fans from around the world in addition to local music buffs whove followed the bands immensely successful 22-year run.

This years Wake and Bake weekend arrives at the end of a busy summer for the band, which spent the past few months playing across America with Vans Warped Tour. From Aug. 14 to 19, the band traveled to Russia to perform at the international music festival Kubana2014. Fiorello said one major change in this years lineup is the bands they chose to have open for them. In the past, Wake and Bake has featured national bands, but this year the opening acts are all younger Florida-based groups. Im excited about that, Fiorello said. Being able to support Florida music is important to Less Than Jake. Wake and Bake weekend begins Saturday at 1 p.m. with a tailgate at High Dive and bingo hosted by Less Than Jake frontman Chris DeMakes. Local food trucks will be on site, and the band is bringing back its legendary Less Than Jake yard sale, featuring old and new merch.

On Sunday night, doors open at 7 p.m. with guest openers Mighty Mongo, Chilled Monkey Brains and General Tsos Fury. Show up early; support the Florida music scene, Fiorello said. See some opening bands you might not have heard of, or heard of but never seen. Less Than Jake prides itself in not ditching Gainesville for the fast-paced Los Angeles music scene. It frequently pays homage to the city in both its discography and production their most recent record, last years See the Light, was written, recorded and produced in Gainesville. Theyre a band that really represents Gainesvilles music scene, Pat Lavery, owner of local booking company Glory Days Presents!, said.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterAnother openin, another show.... Awards season is back, and that means Trophy Hunting is, too all the awards show coverage you need (without the hashtags). was the MTV Video Music Awards, aka the music industrys most notoriously naughty showcase. Known for its shock value, the 2014 edition showed promise early on with powerhouse performances, divas galore and you guessed it endless amounts of twerking. The show started off with a brace yourselves Bang Bang from Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J. Grande and Minaj each sang clips of their current hits, Break Free and Anaconda, the latter bringing the booty in a major way with a gaggle of butt-popping, backup dancers. Props to Minaj for handling the wardrobemalfunction-that-almost-was like a champ, too. It was surely ladies night at the annual awards show. award of the night for Best Female Video. Perry also won the Best (intentional?) Impersonation of Early Millennium Britney Spears Award for her head-to-toe denim garb. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora weaved their way around the stage for a stellar performance of Black Widow, while Miley Cyrus made a statement by having her friend accept her award for Video of the Year on behalf of homeless and runaway youth in the U.S. Hey, its the VMAs. The males of MTV also had their moments. Australian pop sensation 5 Seconds of Summer went for a softer set with Amnesia, while Maroon 5 showcased Maps off of latest album V. British rising star Sam Smith had an Adele moment while performing Stay With Me. Smith captivated the audience with his soaring vocals. Smiths was one of the best and well-received performances of the night. But no performance, presenter or single being on earth could compare to Beyonc, who closed the show with a 15-minute performance that included tracks from her self-titled visual album. The performance was way more than that. It was a true spectacle. Plus, baby Carter saying Good job, mommy! was the highlight of the night. After, Beyonc was presented the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award from husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy. ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterWho says you cant have an awards show on a Monday night? Well, most people would say that weve only just started the work week but not the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The 66th Annual Emmys was your typical awards show fare with one discrepancy: the comedic aspects of the night? They were the true shining moments. Host Seth Meyers delivered a knockout opening monologue, playfully poking fun at everything from MTV seizing hold of the Sunday night spot (the VMAs aired the night before) to calling television the booty call friend of entertainment. Another late-night host who threw down the comedy gauntlet was Jimmy Kimmel. He called out Matthew McConaughey, who was nominated for True Detective, for always seeming to be at award shows this year (All right, all right, all right already!). The list of winners was less innovative. Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series went to The Big Bang Theorys Jim Parsons and Veeps Julia Louis-Dreyfus. In a surprising turn of events, BBC favorite Sherlock received some longawaited Emmy recognition. The show stunned viewers by winning in several tough categories, including Outstanding Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, respectively. In a more somber moment, Sara Bareilles performed a touching version of Smile during the in memoriam segment. The beautiful tribute to Robin Williams that followed could possibly best be summed up by Billy Crystals parting words on his friend: Robin Williams. What a concept. Breaking Bad closed out its Emmy contention with awards for Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn for Outstanding Lead Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress in a Drama Series respectively. Breaking Bad took home one of the nights top honors: Outstanding Drama Series. This wasnt an unusual win, but would anyone protest getting a happy ending? Did your favorites win? Or were they unjustly snubbed? Tweet @AlyssaVHolcomb, and stay tuned for more Trophy Hunting coverage.Trophy Hunting: Your guide to last weekends award showsThe Emmy Awards Video Music Awards

14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 Alligator File PhotoGeorgia running back Todd Gurley stiff arms a UF defender during the Bulldogs 23-20 win over the Gators on Nov. 2. Gurley is an early candidate for the Heisman trophy. Gamecocks uniform. But South Carolina does return a solid linebacker corps this year led by Skai Moore, who had 56 tackles last year as a true freshman. They also return two starters in the secondary to challenge TAMUs receivers. Like Texas A&M, South Carolina is breaking in a new quarterback. Fifth-year senior Dylan Thompson takes over for Connor Shaw with some good experience under his belt hes 3-0 as a starter in his career. Wideouts Shaq Roland and Damiere Byrd return as well, averaging 18 and 17 yards per catch last season, respectively. Thompson is fortunate to have sleeper Heisman candidate Mike is coming off of a 1,183 yard rushing season, and f the Aggies cant stop Davis, it could be a long night.

Boises last trip to the Georgia Dome in 2011 resulted in a 14-point victory over Georgia. It gets tougher for Boise this time around, as they Moore and head coach Chris Petersen. Ole Miss is entering its third year under Hugh Freeze. Returning with him is an extremely talented defense led by defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche and AllAmerican safety Cody Prewitt. They return seven other starters from the unit. Offensively, they get quarterback Bo Wallace, who had more than 3,300 yards passing last year, back. Sophomore wide receiver Laquon Treadwell will be his go-to target, averaging 8 yards per catch as a true freshman last year.

Mason has a plethora of talented wideouts to throw to including Chris Conley, Michael Bennett and Malcolm Mitchell. with tailbacks Todd Gurley and candidate Gurley rushed for more than 900 yards last year despite being banged up for a good chunk of the season. Marshall is fully recovered from a season ending ACL tear in 2013.

The Tigers defensive line could exploit an inexperienced Georgia offensive line, who reed all 13 games last season. Continue reading this story online at alligatorSports.org SEC, from page 13but now its gotten to a point where at some practices, I dont have any bad snaps. So, Ive see the development. Garcia will be the focal point of an offensive line that linebacker Mike Taylor described as nasty throughout practice. holes for the running back, the redshirt senior said. I dont know if its because of the scheme that theyre running but I know that theyve brought a new intensity with how they block and how they approach the game. Junior D.J. Humphries and redshirt senior Chaz Green will take the left and right tackle positions, respectively, while Trip Thurman will start at left guard and either Trenton Brown and Tyler Moore will start at right guard. While his spot in the starting lineup hasnt pound senior from Albany, Ga. is someone that Garcia is grateful to have on his side on game day. Trent makes me look so small when Im standing next to him, Garcia said. But I like having him there. No ones going to get through him. No ones gonna bull rush Trenwhen he puts his hand on someone, that guys getting moved against his will. He doesnt want to get moved, but hes going to get moved. So having him there, hes a force. forcing the Gators to use seven different starting lineup formations throughout the season. We were beat up at times last year, Driskel said. Guys were asked to go either inside to outside or outside to inside, which is tough. But at the same time, youve got to have depth and youve got to be able to rely on more than some depth. I think our offensive line works well together, and we have a lot of talent at the position. O-LINE, from page 13 We were beat up at times last year.Jeff DriskelUF quarterback

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15 Kan Li / Alligator StaffAlex Holston swings at the ball during Floridas 3-0 win against Tennessee on Oct. 27 in the OConnell Center. EDEN OTEROAlligator Staff Writer@edenotero_l Last season, she was the freshman phenom that was nervous about seeing her name in the starting line up. This season, shes just ready to get on the court and play. Right-side hitter Alex Holston, one of Floridas biggest recruits in 2013, showed Florida fans, teammates and coaches exactly why she was ranked No. 9 by PrepVolleyballs Senior Aces list. With a list of accolades including AVCA All-Region, Southeastern Conference-All Freshman Team and All-SEC Team, Holston set the bar high for incoming freshmen. record books, Holston is looking to improve on her rookie year. From a successful freshman season, I always want to do better and take a step up, Holston said. The Olney, Md., native came to recruit since 2008 when three-time All-American and current USA national team member Kelly Murphy joined the team. Holston passed up offers from 46 other schools not knowing if she would even make the starting lineup. Last year I was really nervous, I didnt know I was going to play, Holston said. I was just happy to be here and happy to be practicing with the Florida team. When it was time to announce the lineup for the season opener against New Orleans on Aug. 30, 2013, Holston couldnt believe her eyes. When she (Mary Wise) announces the starters its literally right before the game, so you really dont know if youre playing, Holston said. Last year, my heart was beating so fast when I saw my number on the board. I just didnt know what to do. Despite her nerves, Holston ing weekend against New Orleans and LIU-Brooklyn with 14 kills on a .393 offensive clip and six blocks. At the end of the season, she started 18 matches, making 55 blocks and 286 kills which were both third on the team. With her nerves in check, Holston reiterates her original message: shes just ready to play. Were all just excited to get out there and play, like every team, she said. We always want to play tough teams, we never want to go in and just have a day off. We know that no teams is like having a day off though.Right-side hitter strives for success ALEX MAMINAKISAlligator Writer@alexmaminakis When fans go to soccer games and watch them on television, they are anticipating the exciting moments of the game. They want to see goals, and they want to see the big plays. For this years Florida team, fans can expect plenty of goals and exciting scoring plays with offensive powerhouses such as Savannah Jordan and Jillian Graff. But what gets overlooked at times when a team wins is how well its defense performs. The No. 6 Gators won weekend, shutting out both Miami and South Florida and holding them to a comFloridas 29. The defensive play of Florida was solid throughout both games, and not just from the defenders, but from This preseason we really worked on team defense, Solaun said. The whole concept is kind of like when we lose possession, its get behind the ball and whoevers closest goes and so I think that everybody all over the job of playing team defense. Senior goalkeeper Taylor Burke also liked what she saw from her defense last weekend. She had high praise for the way her team played defensively in both games. We didnt even have that many shots on goal, Burke said, so it was awesome that the whole team defended and it was really good for us to get two shutouts as well. Although she was quick to give credit to her defense for the two shutout victories, Burkes play this weekend can not be overlooked either. She is no stranger to shutouts as she captured the 24th and 25th solo shutouts of her career with the wins over Miami and South Florida and is now only two away from tying the school record of 27, which was set by Katie Fraine in 2010. Not everything Burke does during a game gets recognized on the stat sheet, but performance as a whole. She takes care of a lot of things by directing the people in front of her, coach Becky Burleigh said, and by cutting out crosses and things like that that could turn into more dangerous opportunities.Goalkeeper, defense ready to build on early season successSOCCER
