In addition to halting the sale of tobacco products, CVS Health is offering a new smoking cessation program to help smokers quit. Cigarettes, rolling papers and chewing tobacco no longer line the shelves behind the stores registers. Instead signs read, Lets quit together, and products designed to help people quit, like Nicorette, are on display. Although the company no longer sells tobacco products, customers who havent heard the news yet are still going to CVS Health stores hoping to buy them. Ashlei White, a 23-year-old sales associate at a Gainesville CVS Health store, located at 901 N.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 NATIONAL CASSIDY WHITSONAlligator Contributing WriterThroughout JT Reales time spent at UF, he has never participated in the UF student football lottery. Reale, a 20-year-old public relations senior, is part of a growing trend of students who feel that the college football experience is about more than just the game. I dont see the need to enter the lottery, he said. According to The Wall Street Journal, declining student ticket sales has become an escalating trend on college campuses nationwide. The Journal found a 22percent decrease in attendance at UF football games from 2009 to 2013. Meanwhile, student attendance nationally decreased by 7.1 percent on average since 2009. Daniel Apple, assistant director of communications for UAA, wrote in an email that UAA did not sell out for season tickets this year. I dont think there is one particular reason that the numbers declined, he said. I think that there are many factors and that its a nationwide problem that schools are losing student attendance and attendance in general, he added. However, Apple said UF still has the fourth-highest student attendance in the country. Bre Rouse, a 22-year-old UF architecture senior, has never entered the lottery because she does not have time to attend the games, which can be all-day affairs. She said the declining attendance could be attributed to the football team not playing as well as they have in previous seasons. Its not exciting anymore, so people dont want to go, she said. When its exciting, people go. When its not, they dont. On Sunday, about 1,500 student lottery tickets remained unsold. But even without selling out the Idaho game, which was later suspended and ruled a no contest, the UAA sold more student tickets for the opening game than were sold for the 2013 opener against Toledo, Apple said. Reale wondered if more students would buy tickets if they were sold on a game-by-game basis instead of packaged in the lottery. Personally, I know a lot of my friends do the same thing that I do, he said. He added, They just buy guest tickets for the games they want to go to Within the UAA, Apple said there is always an ongoing discussion to see what can be done to improve the process of student ticket sales. Even through the rain, he said Saturdays game was a testament to how much UF students come out to support the Gator football team.Student football ticket sales declining slowly across nation TJ PYCHEAlligator Contributing Writer The Florida Education Association is challenging the states most recent expansion of its K-12 tuition assistance program, the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program. a lawsuit last week alleging that the states program, which provides income-eligible students scholarships for private school tuition, is an unconstitutional attempt to divert funds from Floridas public schools. The program is funded through corporate donations, but donors are provided tax credits. These tax credits end up costing the state money in lost revenue, opponents argue. I think the major concern we have is that there are students throughout the state of Florida that need to have better attention paid to them, said Mark Pudlow, spokesman for the FEA. In 2006, the state Supreme Court deemed a similar program unconstitutional. The Florida Opportunity Scholars Program, however, was directly appropriated money by the state. Proponents of the current programs expansion hope that changes in how it is funded will allow it to be viewed as constitutional. Jason Nance, an assistant professor in the Levin College of Law, said proving the programs constitutionality One question Nance raised was whether the overall budget for public schools would decrease.FEA sues over private school tuition tax credits They just buy guest tickets for the games they want to go to.JT Realepublic relations senior FEA Vice President Joanne McCall Sen.

GRIFFIN HORVATHAlligator Staff Writerghorvath@alligator.orgUF Health Shands Childrens Hospital revealed a new entrance along with the Sebastian Ferrero Atrium on Wednesday as part of its ongoing renovation projects. The atrium includes a dedication wall honoring its namesake, Sebastian Ferrero, a 3-year-old who passed away at Shands in 2007. The $11 million atrium and exterior were presented Wednesday in front of crowd of physicians, hospital staff and donors. Inspired to honor their sons memory, Sebastians parents launched the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation, which advocates for advancements in pediatric care. David Guzick, president of UF Health, said the revealing is a culmination of a vision that started four to a dedicated childrens hospital. He said remaining projects include renovations of the neonatal intensive care unit and a pre-andpost operative area for pediatric surgical patients. Featured at the entrance of the childrens hospital is a sculpture, Tomorrow, created by artist Romero Britto and commissioned by the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation. Its a realization of a dream in memory of our son, but for the benlies for decades to come, Horst Ferrero, Sebastians father, said. Childrens Hospital unveils colorful entrancePrize winners announced in Marchof those colleges that applied, said Leigh Arsenault, Aspen College Excellence Program manager. I think year after year, Santa Fe has exceeded the national average in completion and transfer, Arsenault said. Arsenault said there is national consensus that community colleges serve an important function in higher education as they enroll the majority of freshmen and sophomores in the country. The prize is meant to recognize the work within the top colleges, spotlight the successes and encourage replication. We do ask that (the winners) share with us how the money is used, she said. We know that the colleges have been achieving exceptional results, and we allow them to use that to continue the work. In line with Aspens ideals is Santa Fes support of minority groups. A student coming from a non-majority ethnic group has a better chance of succeeding here than most colleges, Sasser said. Thats a priority to us to promote success for all students. Sasser said he is looking forward to Aspens campus visit to share the culture of Santa Fe before the winners are announced in March. SANTA FE, from page 1He spoke about Sotloffs death(airplanes), Conley said. Now, theyre focusing on the media and people in the press.

I just got an outpour of texts, she said. My stomach dropped, and I knew. Weiss said every day of his disappearance was a constant worry and what got her through was his love of life. I knew he wouldnt want us to constantly worry about him, she said. Weiss said Sotloff only wanted to report the truth. He was truly an adventure, she said. He wanted to be where the action was.

Attendees now must be 18 or older to parheadbands and sweaty crowds. Bre Berry, a 20-year-old UF advertising senior and director of Swamp Records, said it was obvious for Ultra to ban minors. The culture of EDM is very adultthemed, so people under 18 should not be allowed into Ultra, she said. Im sure Ultra was under pressure from the City of Miami as well. The festival, scheduled for March 27 to 29 of next year, was heavily criticized after incidents, including a guard getting trampled and an attendee dying from an overdose. Chloe Ehrlich, a 20-year-old UF advertising junior, said the ban was smart for Ultra. When I went to Ultra, I noticed kids as young as 13 years old getting involved with drugs and scandalous behavior, she said. Its a good thing. Adolescents should not be exposed to this type of partying just yet. Tony Weinbender, creator of local music festival Fest, said he runs things a little differently than Ultras open venue.

Applying this adage to Florida Gov. Rick Scott is somethese days. A June poll from Public Policy Polling found that Scotts approval rating was just 39 percent, making him one of the most unpopular governors in America. Unfortunately for Scott, a number of the friends he does have are turning out to be corrupt criminals. On Aug. 27, Scott Batterson, one of Scotts appointees to the states Expressway Authority, was convicted on charges of bribery and other corruption. Batterson faces up to 15 years in prison. The Orlando Sentinel reported that Batterson and his allies planned to take over the authority and use its $300 million in toll revenues to win contracts for friends and further their own careers. and illegal practices. Last year, Scotts current chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, admitted that he repeatedly lied on his 2011 membership application to Enterprise Florida, a publicprivate economic development agency. Hollingsworths predecessor, Steve MacNamara, resigned in 2012 following revelations of a scandal in which MacNamara helped secure lucrative no-bid contracts for his associates. In February, Manny Maroo, former mayor of Sweetwater and a close ally of Scott, began serving a prison sentence for his own corruption scandal. Its also worth remembering that Scott himself has a criminal past. Before his election to the Florida House of Representatives, Scott was the CEO of Columbia/HCA, a health care conglomerate. During Scotts time at Columbia/HCA, the company was involved in a $1.7 billion Medicare fraud settlement, the largest such settlement in Medicare history. In 2000, Scott gave a deposition in which he invoked the Fifth Amendment, which protects American citizens from selfincrimination in criminal investigations, a remarkable 75 times. Even if Scott wasnt directly responsible for his companys illegal activity and thats a generous assumption the corrupt behavior of his friends and associates is a clear demonstration of his own character. At this point, the best defense one could present for Scott is that he is an aloof and incompetent executive unaware of the rampant corruption taking place on his watch. Leaving aside Scotts numerous policy failures during his time as governor, his penchant for appointing and associating with corrupt individuals is a shameful mark on our state. no doubt that hes mastered the art. In November, Florida voters will get the chance to reject four more years of the corruption that Scott has allowed to run rampant in our state. The people of Florida deserve better than what Scott has to offer.Common Core opponents need a planI cant stand numbers, and for good reason. I am almost entirely right-brained, which means my mind sometimes works in mysterious and unconventional ways. Most people have a good balance between the analytical, logical left brain and the creative, conceptual right but I have much less of a distinction. My mind doesnt work like an organized, functioning ored yarn that somebody dragged through a conspicuously quaint coffee shop. In my senior year of high school, I dreaded taking the PSAT/NMSQT, ACT and SAT, along with the multitude of other barbaric acronyms students in this country are subjected to during their educational careers. I was expected to stuff my wad of yarn neatly into a box and ship it off to some spreadsheet wizard Ive never met, who would poke around in it for a while before turning it into a nice, neat number. It was horrifying. Im not alone in my frustration with the uncompromising rigidity of Americas standardized testing system. People all over the country have been expressing their discontent about these kinds of tests for years. Increasingly, parents of elementary, middle and high school students who are fed up with the kind of education their children are receiving have spoken out against these tests. Opponents of standardized testing are also frustrated by the implementation of Common Core, a government initiative that seeks to establish a national standard for public education. A single national rule looks like a good idea, but the program relies heavily on standardized testing. It seems the government has decided these tests are the lions of American students. Those pushing back against standardized testing received a bit of encouragement last week in a Lee County school district meeting, where the school board voted to abolish the Common Core standards in the district. A crowd of concerned citizens showed their solidarity with the anti-Common Core movement by dressing in red. For three hours, they spoke their minds. One woman said the district sent a proctor to watch her son take the FCAT at his home because he was terminally ill and couldnt take it at school. Cheers erupted when the board made its decision; the crowd booed down dissenting opinions from the superintendent, who said the decision would hurt the districts children. Attendees also booed another speaker, who agreed with the decision but also asked for some sort of standardized plan to be put in place. Unfortunately, the board met a few days later and reversed its decision, voting to opt back into the Common Core standards. The school board was likely responding to a warning from the superintendent that the district could lose $280 million in education funding if it didnt fall in line with the rest of the state. Common Core has evolved from an idea meant to streamline education into a potent piece of political ammunition, with enough supporters among the rich and powerful that millions of dollars can be tossed around to protect it. Although the program has a number of wealthy supporters, Common Core is losing support among the general public. As much as 60 percent of the American public disagrees with Common Core standards in some capacity. Common Core has one major advantage: It is an existing kids into numbers but its a plan nonetheless. Its not enough for anti-Common Core groups to feel good about themselves for opposing a broken system. If anything is to be learned from Lee County, its that criticism and vetoes arent going to cut it any longer. If Common Core opponents want to challenge the status quo, they must present a realistic alternative to modern Americas inadequate system of standardized testing.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 KERI & KELSI MATWICKAvenue WritersWithin the last 20 years, there has been an international boom in TV channels devoted exclusively to food and cooking, including Cuisine TV in France and the Food Network and Cooking Channel in the U.S. The cooking shows range from competitions, reality shows and travelogues to the most traditional form of basic how-to-cook shows. For many Americans, cooking and eating at home are becoming more unrealistic with long work hours and a fast-paced lifestyle. So, what is the draw? How is it that food TV, initially intended for housewives, now captures the attention of viewers across generations, socio-economic levels and gender? Maybe because cooking shows are entertaining. These hosts appear to be more intent on establishing a relationship with viewers than being instructional. Rarely do we get enough details to be able to cook the recipe ourselves just by watching the show. Even the cooking technique practiced by the show host suggests spontaneity few measure precise quantities, preferring a liberal hand in the addition of ingredients. For instance, Rachael Ray of Food Network is famous for her Rachael-isms, or distinctive expressions. She uses terminology such as two turns of the pan when adding EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) to the skillet, or she will eyeball it by measuring the ingredient in her palm. Indeed, the reason for giving recipes on cooking shows seems to be more about imparting ideas and giving inspiration than on demanding exact emulation. Sometimes, the show host gives a rundown of suggestions on how to expand the recipe, such as using extra roasted vegetables with linguine, stuff it in a sandwich, add to a salad, top with rice, etc. Shows can even be a form of advertising with hosts highlighting food-related products, cookbooks and kitchen equipment. Cooking shows not only provide culinary instruction and consumer tips, but also offer the vicarious pleasures of cooking, eating and simulated companionship with show hosts all reasons for the food-related networks irresistible draw for viewers.TV cooking shows: Do they or can they offer more than cooking tips? MICHELLE LCHAUAvenue WriterA UF psychology senior asks his roommate for his laptop and looks up a website. Sitting in the middle of his living room amid dirty dishes and Xbox controllers, he lets out a loud cackle. Roscoe Parsley, 21, looked up Check One Two, a campaign created by British brothers Simon and Andrew Salter to raise awareness about testicular cancer, one of the most preventable forms of the disease. The Salter brothers encourage men and sometimes women to post funny or creative pictures on Instagram using the hashtag #FEELINGNUTS to bring the cause to light. The campaign has even reached Emmy Award winner Aaron Paul, famous comedian Ricky Gervais and The Kooks, a British rock band. Parsley says he checks himself regularly and has never found an abnormality. He said he loves the campaign and ative way to catch social media savvies attention. I like it. I just think its a cool way to spread awareness, Parsley said. Much better than in a textbook. Check One Two also aims to educate men and women about the disease. The website, checkonetwo.co.uk, offers a comical tutorial on how to quickly check for abnormalities in six steps. Dr. Paul Crispen, a urologic oncologist at UF Health Shands Hospital, said self-examination is harmless and relatively simple. Testicular cancer is a rare malignancy, affecting only about one to three per hundred thousand men in the U.S. It is, however, the most common malignancy of men between the ages of 20 and 40, he said. Thankfully, it is a very curable cancer. Nikolas Colley, a UF zoology junior, said although he had never heard of the campaign, he does check himself regularly. Colley, 19, found an abnormality during his senior year of high school. There was just, like, a very perfectly round kind of lump thing, he said. So once I felt that it was only on one side and not the other, I thought, Well, I need to go get this checked, he said. Colley consulted a doctor who conafter a testicular ultrasound. This nurse lady that I hadnt ever seen in my life, she was pouring like warm jelly down there and poking and prodding with this thing that usually is used on pregnant womens bellies, he said. I just found a kind of comedy in that.Need a good excuse to feel your nuts?Cancer awareness campaign DANIELA PRIZONT-CADO Avenue WriterBunches of illustrated chickens form the word YUM on a blood-red background. A familiar sans-serif font in trademarked yellow letters reads, theyre livin it just beneath. This allusion to McDonalds is just one of the posters in an exhibition that took place downtown on Friday, hosted by a group of community designers from a local graphic design and printing company. The group, neutral7, decided to tackle serious, worldwide issues by bringing awareness to the public through a series of 23 posters. The exhibition, called #visualizewhatmatters, took place at Jolie Events, 6 W. University Ave. It was followed by a silent auction, during which guests were able to bid on the posters. I dont think that anyone has done anything like this here in Gainesville, said Albey Coronel, the creative director of the company. Despite some challenges with time and resources, Coronel said he is pleased about the exhibitions outcome. He said 100 percent of proceeds topics on each poster. Rick Bales is one of the designers whose art was displayed at the exhibition. His pieces Desero, Yum and Unspoken Oppression vary in topics from religion, health and politics. done, he said. I was surprised. Ive never seen anything go up so quickly. after graduating from high school, designing on his own as a freelancer. Theres a lot of talent involved. Theres a lot that goes into a piece collaboration that made this possible, he said. Multimedia designer Scott Littler was one of the guests who attended the event after hearing about it through Facebook. Theyre pushing messages you dont normally see, he said. Littler said the one thing he likes about Gainesville is that its a college town, which allows local artists to Its been kind of an adventure, honestly, putting this show togetherI think its probably the best work weve ever done, Coronel said. For the next 20 days, neutral7 will release posters daily via social media. If you didnt get a chance to check out the show, be sure to follow its Facebook page at facebook.com/neutral7.Locals design posters about world issues, auction them off for charity cooking

Hold off and stream others ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterSince the release of their debut jazz-pop hybrid album Songs About Jane, Maroon 5 has been in a consistently funk infusions? Are they a synth-pop formula machine generating replicated sound after sound? The answer depends on who you talk to, but with their precarious balance between soul and synth. Adam Levines falsetto-driven verses and a densely backed chorus, while It Was Always You almost drops the beat with its electronic-backed second verse. Animals comes close to being a rhythm and blues track, with Levines vocals slinking back and forth between ranges easily, while Unkiss Me shows a slow grind of a verse building to a sighing chorus. Seventies funk rears its ugly head a bit in Sugar, which sounds part Bee Gees and part Bruno Mars. Feelings is almost there with its bouncing bass line, but it gets lost in its synthesized whoomp whoomp backing sound. The album features a steady staff of writers and producers, including Fun.s Nate Ruess co-penning the sweeping semi-ballad Leaving California and OneRepublics Ryan Tedder helping write and produce several tracks, including the more processed track New Love. Stadium-ready power ballad My Heart Is Open, featuring Gwen Stefani, is one of the few standout tracks. Stefanis surprisingly soulful tone a departure from both the harsher sounds of No Doubt and the higher pitched Hollaback Girl-era vibes blends well with Levines, making for a particularly lovely moment on the album. And no wonder this track is a standout its co-written by Sia, the songstress behind some of the most memorable Top 40 tracks of the past few years (see Chandelier, Rihannas Diamonds). The deluxe version of the album also includes the softer Lost Stars from the Begin Again soundtrack, in which Levine played a folky musician whose rising stardom leaves Keira Knightley in its wake, and a cover of Marcy Playgrounds Sex and Candy. The latter is a slow and sensual track akin to the early sounds of the band. Levines voice shines in this style of vocalization. Sure, he can hit that falsetto time after time, but his lower register rumbles just right on this. As a whole, the album is a mixture of genres and sounds as of late. together. There are some moments that stand out, but overall, the Maroon 5: V treads between soul, synth review TV, from page 7

but the game only got as far as the opening kickoff. UF will pay Idaho its $975,000 guarantee for coming to Gainesville by Feb. 1, as outlined in their contract agreement. Fans who purchased tickets to the game will also be reimbursed at face value student tickets at $15 and regular game tickets at $25. Floridas new season opener will be Saturday against Eastern Michigan (1-0) at 4 p.m. in The last time Florida did not play its season opener on schedule was in 2004, when Hurricane Frances pushed the Week 1 game against Middle Tennessee back from Sept. 4, 2004 to Oct. 16. Floridas new season-opening opponent that year was also Eastern Michigan. I wish we could have played the game Saturday night, but I support the decision made by both athletic directors, coach Will Muschamp said in a release. As I said earlier this week, our focus is getting our players and team ready for Eastern Michigan and we are excited to get back out there in front of our passionate and loyal fans. Both Idaho and Florida had an open date on Oct. 25 the weekend before Floridas annual game against Georgia in Jacksonville. If they were to have played the game on that day, the Gators regular season would have ended with UF playing nine consecutive games. The seasons a brutal stretch, quarterback Jeff Driskel said. When you get to playing dont have as much time as you like to really rest your body. Footballs obviously a physical game, not as much for me as it is for some of the linemen or running backs or linebackers that are constantly hitting each other, but its big mentally and physically to take a little time off and get back to where you want to be. Redshirt junior Valdez Showers, who returned the opening kickoff 64 yards to the Idaho 14yard line, agreed. Its a long season and to be honest with you a lot of players take advantage of those bye weeks, trying to really get in the treatment room and get treated up during the off week, Showforward to those bye weeks.

Leon Orr progressing: Redshirt senior Leon Orr is ready to make his mark. After playing behind starters such as Sharrif Floyd, Dominique Easley and Damien Jacobs throughout his Florida career, Orr is ready to make an impact. Hes playing well, doing a good job, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. I think he understands his role has changed a little bit now. Hes been behind some really good players throughout his time. Now its his turn to step up and take on more of those reps. Durkin also sees development in redshirt freshman Caleb Brantley. Calebs made great strides from throughout his time here from Durkin said. Hes gone leaps and bound. ... Weve had to work on his practice habits and things he does, but thats natural. Fowlers lovin it: Dante Fowler, Jr. made a New Years resolution to lose weight. One way hes accomplished that was giving up on eating one of his favorite foods the McDonalds Big Mac. Im like six months clean or something. But nah, I mean, I feel good, just being healthier and just staying in shape, Fowler said. Im feeling more better, my body is more leaner, I dont have a lot of fat on me. So Im able to just run around and just play football. had not eaten a Big Mac in eight months. Injury Report: Redshirt sophomore Jeremi Powell had his knee scoped and will be out for a few weeks, Muschamp said on the teleconference. Marcus Maye (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturdays game against Eastern Michigan. NOTEBOOK,from page 14 FOOTBALL, from page 14Fans who purchased tickets will be reimbursedUnroe preparing for tough road testfense is one of the biggest issues Florida is working to combat, the Gators still have to consider the impact that FSU junior outside hitter Nicole Walch will have in the match. Florida State is coming off of a big win at then-No. 7 Nebraska that saw Walch put up a double-double with 18 kills and 15 digs. set FSU win with 22 kills, 15 digs and three service aces. With Walch and four transfers that Florida has seen little from, the Gators slow down the Seminoles offense and stop Walch from putting up big numbers. This will be the ultimate test that weve had so far, playing on the road at Florida State theyll have a huge crowd and theyll come out and give us their best, Unroe said. So I think were just preparing as best we can on our side to try to combat what they do on Thursday. VOLLEY, from page 14 Now its his turn to step up and take on more of those reps.D.J.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffSavannah Jordan dribbles the ball during Floridas 3-0 win against Miami on Aug. 22 at James G. Pressly Stadium. SOCCER ALEX MAMINAKISAlligator Writer@alexmaminakisFor many teams, when the starting players begin to get tired or are not having their best game, coaches struggle with substituting and putting in a player off the bench. So far this season, Florida has had no such problem. Sundays victory against Oklahoma State is a perfect example of this. It was a very hot game in Stillwater, Okla., so coach Becky Burleigh utilized the depth of her roster to its full extent. I think depth is a strength of this team and this year weve been really committed to using it, Burleigh said. I think its paying off. It certainly paid off last weekend, when players coming off the goals in its two road games. One of those players was sophomore Brooke Sharp, who recorded an assist and a goal within about three minutes of each other against Oklahoma State. Thats whats special about us, Sharp said. No matter who comes off the bench, our coaches trust us that we can go in and make big plays and do something big for us. They (Oklahoma State) were just really tired. So it wasnt hard to move the ball around and go in with a 100-percent effort. That is where having such a deep roster helps teams like Florida, especially playing in the August and September heat. The Gators tire their opponents out and take advantage of their fresh players off the bench. Not a lot of teams have that luxury. Sophomore Savannah Jordan is a regular starter at forward for the Gators, but she understands the importance of the players who come in later in the game and play a big role for the team. We have great depth this year, Jordan said. I think a lot of players this year are really stepeven coming off the bench and being big players for us, so I think that can continue to go throughout the season. Throughout the season, Jordan has shown strong offensive play. Four games into her sophomore season, the Fayetteville, Ga., native has tallied 25 goals in just two seasons for the Gators and has received accolades like Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, National Rookie of the Year and an All-American second team selection. She has scored in three of Floricredits her teammates for making the big plays around her. A lot of that is my teammates, they set me up for all those goals, Jordan said. I think all three (goals) actually came off of crosses or balls in from my teammates so I think Im just getting in good positions and my teammates are doing a fantasDepth provides Florida with opportunities to tire out opponents
