Standing behind the yellow rope, Bailey pulled out his phone, braced himself to take a video of the sea of orange and blue jerseys that would soon run a mere few feet away from him. Bailey, a 25-year-old UF landscape architecture junior, was one of the 50 UF students randomly chosen to participate in the UAAs Its super special, he said. I didnt know it was a thing.

But some students werent able to attend the Saturday game. Chemical engineering junior Brendan Dufresne, 20, grew up watching the Gators play with his parents, who are alumni. Dufresne only heard about the tunnel hours before the Idaho game. Because he had to work Saturday, he gave his spot to his 18-year-old brother Nick, a UF music and computer science freshman. Annaleigh Bonds, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior, said she has been going to Gator games since she was 3 years old. She and her sorority sister Haley Ponnock came to Gate 16 smiling just as wide as they were the week before.

Stump said if SNAP gets backed up or other transportation methods are not available, students can call UPD walk with students across campus if needed. In the back halls of UPD, boots clopped and doors up the Emergency Operations Center, which answered dozens of parent and student phone calls, controlled rumors and collected suspect information. The center combined efforts with UPD, the Dean of campus organizations to monitor phone lines. the center had been put in place to thwart violent incidents and locate a suspect. You know, Ive been here 11 years, and weve never set it up for anything other than hurricanes, she said. The four victims involved in the series of incidents are cooperating with police, Sikes said. These women have been incredibly strong in that they have done everything right, Sikes said. They have screamed and fought, and thats what we have asked our students to do if faced with a similar situation. All of us have got to double down in taking care of each other and making good choices moving forward. Anyone with information regarding the incidents age individuals to remain aware of their surroundings and to call 911 immediately to report any suspicious activity or individuals. We need help out there from the public, Stump said. Weve got more eyes and ears out there than (UPD) will ever have, and we need those kind of phone calls from our campus.

ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterEight applicants for the new UF president were announced Friday on the presidential search website. The search committee revealed the names after meeting at the UF Board of Trustees retreat. The committee discussed key traits and objectives the next president should possess when UF President Bernie Machen retires in December. for the position include UF Provost Joseph Glover; AbraHealth System director of critical care; Ronald Nykiel, Special Advisor to the CEO of the Pantheon Chemical Corp.; and Kamal Dean Parhizgar, professor of management and business ethics at Texas A&M International University.

He read through the term sheets 26 items, which intion. The list also incorporated shortand long-term goals for UF, such as adopting strategic plans for preeminence. Jan Greenwood, owner of Asher & Associates Inc., updated the committee on marketing efforts. She said the number of applicants will be small, but there has been a positive response about the preeminence goals. Were serious about getting the best president to achieve top 10 status, Greenwood said. Outreach themes like preMission contributions and furthering UFs commitment through responses to the two search criteria questions sent to the greater UF community in an email at the end of August. More than 100 people sent feedback, which showed focus and interest, said Jodi Gentry, assistant vice president of Human Resource Services. Gentry opened a brainstorming session to pin the important qualities of a president, which would be turned into questions for future candidates. Strategic, open minded and synergetic were among the mentions. The president should also focus on the student experience and on maintaining UFs status in the Association of American Universities. Theres really no limit to where we can go, said Vasudha Narayanan, committee member and UF Department of Religion professor. Its a moving horizon. We can get there, and we will get there. Presidential Search Committee Chairman Steven Scott said the whole university must get involved to prove they are ready for this change. Weve been challenged to move into the top 10, Scott said.

Todays question: Do you support medical marijuana legalization in Florida? Senators push for Theres a common trope in the conservative movement that liberals control American schools and use them to brainwash and indoctrinate impressionable American youth. Conservative publications like RedState and the International Business Times have published articles about how the public school system is turning American children into tree-hugging, Obamacare-loving liberals. If there was actual indoctrination occurring in American public schools, what might that look like? Perhaps a bill introduced in the Florida Legislature that would require classes in all 1,700 In fact, just such a bill was recently introduced in the Florida House of Representatives. So, which power-hungry Democrat, eager to brainwash our children with his liberal lies, introduced this dangerous piece of legislation? As you may have guessed by now, it wasnt a Democrat who introduced this bill, but a Republican. Sen. Alan Hays introduced a bill that would require Florida students to watch Dinesh DSouzas America: Imagine conservative propaganda. It relies less on historic facts than it does on assumption that everything America has ever done was absolutely right and good, no questions asked. But what about slavery? The Vietnam War? The century of oppression between the end of the Civil War and the civil rights movement? Theres nothing wrong with celebrating all the positive things about America, and students should certainly be encouraged to demonstrate civic pride and patriotism. However, part of being a responsible and empowered citizen is being fully informed, and that means understanding American history as a complex and nuanced topic. Rather than simply viewing the U.S. as a perfect, divinely ordained City on a Hill, students should be taught about the problems America faces so Even if one were to argue that America merely presents a valid alternate take on American history, DSouzas ideological 2016: Obamas America, which intended to damage President Barack Obamas re-election prospects before the 2012 election. But it was riddled with inaccuracies and conspiracy theories. DSouza also recently pled guilty to violating New York donate $10,000 each to his friend Wendy Longs 2012 Senate campaign and then reimbursed them. Between his penchant for creating propaganda and his legal troubles, DSouza does not seem likely to contribute much substance to the American education system. Our goal as Americans and Floridians should be to build and maintain a public school system that encourages students to think for themselves. Mandating screenings of propaganda in Floridas public schools seems likely to do the opposite.Stop blaming women for sexual assaultT the UF campus on high alert. The terrifying news of four attempted sexual assaults in the nighttime hours have left UF students afraid of walking home alone. But these attacks are isolating one group of people in particular: women. It is all too easy to chalk up these recent incidents to natural occurrence. Some argue that women are supposed to know better than to walk alone at night because they are sexual targets. However, these individuals miss the central point of this issue. The conversation we need to be having is about why women are seen as sexual targets and sometimes unable to associate freely in public simply because of their gender. In a recent email sent out over the UF listserv, UPD Chief Linda Stump wrote that her message served to remind you of the importance of looking out for your own safety and that of others. Because the recent attacks have her message is telling female students to take better care of themselves when they are out. Society too often blames the victims in cases of rape and sexual assault. We may ask: What were you doing walking home without a chaperone? In modern America, there is seemingly an entire rulebook of precautions that women must follow before they leave their homes. Dont go out at night. If you have to go out at night, take a friend. Dont wear clothes that might provoke a man. Pay extra attention to your surroundings whether that means staying sober or not talking on the phone while walking down the street for fear of being attacked. Yes, there are precautions women can and should take to better ensure their safety. However, none of these precautions confront the real issue at hand here, which is men attacking women. When are we going to start trying to prevent this predatory action in men so that women may exist freely without constantly being put at risk? The issue of sexual assault on college campuses garnered attention last year after tales of several sexual assault cases that were poorly handled by university ofEarlier this year, President Barack Obama established a special task force to protect students after a study determined that 1 in 5 female college students is sexually assaulted at school. These new developments on the issue of sexual assault come after UF experienced an alarming trend itself, according to crime statistics from UPD one forcible sex es are reported, so there could have very well been more rapes and sexual assaults in those years. Although UPD has not released statistics for the past three years, UF has seen more reported sexual assaults in this past week than in 2008 alone. There is no simple solution to ending acts of sexual violence against women, but simply telling women to be more careful and take extra precautions is not nearly enough. As a start, more exposure and education on the issue ference. Every Fall, freshman students have to complete a short module on alcohol safety. An accompanying module on appropriate sexual behavior, including information about consent and sexual assault, would go a long way toward combatting these important issues. Ending violence against women at UF and in America is not the responsibility of women alone. We should all work toward a future where young women are sent off to school with shower shoes and printer ink as going-away gifts and not pink, pocket-sized bottles of pepper spray.

Barge also stole items that he already had receipts for and tried to get a refund for those items.Police roundup: DUI, criminal mischief, fraud and petit theftS T A TE GIUSEPPE SABELLAAlligator Contributing WriterA UF poll has found that the majority of Floridians are in favor of an amendment that would legalize medical marijuana. A poll by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, alongside the UF Bureau of Economic and Business Research, the Tampa Bay Times and Bay News 9, revealed that 57 percent of Floridians were in favor of the Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, while 23 percent opposed it. Organizations such as Drug Free Florida are concerned with the registration and regulation of treatment centers, patients and caregivers a task reserved for the Florida Department of Health. While some are wary of the amendment, others are preparing to take it head on. The Cannabis Career Institute will visit Gainesville on Oct. 25 to educate clients about future opportunities in the marijuana business. The general public has no idea about the practical applications of marijuana, said Robert Calkin, president of the institute. The problem is getting them to listen. At least 60 percent of Florida voters would need to vote in favor of the amendment to legalize medical marijuana. Kristen Burns, a member of UFs National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said past ideas of the drug hinder progress. I think that among the older generation, there is still a mindset of reefer madness, said the 20-yearold psychology junior. I think it should be your right to choose what substances you put in your body. Gainesville resident Rolena Howle said she thinks people will abuse the system if it is legalized. I agree there are people who have medical issues that probably could be helped with the use of it, and my heart goes out to them, she said. But still, the risk is greater for the rest of the public than it is for that individual.Voters support medical marijuana I think it should be your right to choose what substances you put in your body.Kristen BurnsUF psychology junior


MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Nathalie Dortonne / Alligator StaffFabulous Faces with colorful sand Saturday afternoon at the Gainesville Jewelry, Art & Craft Show at The Oaks Mall. ST A TE ELIZABETH THOMPSONAlligator Contributing WriterThe Florida Department of Environmental Protection raised about $15.6 million for conservation after selling a nearly 80-acre nonconservation state-owned property. The land will be used to build a new sports complex, but the money raised from the sale will fund future conservation initiatives, according to a DEP press release. The DEP closed the sale with Southeast Legacy Investments LLC last Tuesday. The department accepted bids for the property until Jan. 29, 2014 at 10:30 a.m., Mara Burger, DEP spokeswoman, said in an email. The departments Division of State Lands, which buys and sells nonconservation lands for Florida, received and opened the bids. The minimum offer was $9 million and a deposit of $200,000. Southeast Legacy Investments LLC was the highest bidder. Gov. Rick Scott and the board of trustees approved the sale March 6. We have a lot of many beautiful things in Florida, and the fact we can conserve many of these places with a sale like this is something positive, said McKinley Lewis, Department of Health spokesman. The land is about 280 miles from Gainesville, but future sales could be closer. Multiple state-owned lands will be sold over the next couple of months, Burger said. The DEP hopes to raise about $40 million for future purchases of conservation lands. Mark Hostetler, UF wildlife ecology and conservation professor, said the combined efforts of state and county is important to consider concerning conservation. The state can only raise so much, Hostetler said. Every level can do its own part in conserving the environment.Environment department raises millions for conservation IT ALSO UPDATED THE PHONE APPS. LAUREN MALONEY Alligator Contributing Writer Local tutoring company Study Edge released its new iPad app for students to have easier access to materials. Catering to students that choose to watch live reviews from home, Study Edge launched this app, along with updates to its existing apps. Anne Grundhoefer, Study Edge director of marketing, said the study service wanted to better serve its users requests. We understand that students may not always be watching videos on their computer in a library setting, and we wanted to give them a way of getting last minute tips on the bus right from their phones or tablets, she said. Matt Hintze, founder of TutoringZone, another tutoring service, said his company has no current plans to create an app. Students lives are complicated enough, he said. We offer plain and simple tutoring and have found that to be effective in giving our customers a high quality of life. Hannah Carr, a 19-year-old UF accounting sophomore, who uses Study Edge for her managerial accounting and calendar features on the app that update review times automatically to (her) iPhone were especially useful. Study Edge releases new iPad study app NICOLE WIESENTHALAlligator Contributing WriterMallory Vila, 18, types her in-class notes on her laptop while Gaby Placido, 21, takes handwritten notes in class. I kind of decide to write down things that the teacher says that arent in the book or on the slides, like added content to whats already provided, said Placido, a UF wildlife ecology and conservation junior. According to a study, The Pen is Mightier Than the Keyboard, published in April by Psychological Science, students like Gaby Placido, who take handwritten notes in class, are more likely to score higher on tests. The study, which resurfaced at the start of the Fall semester, revealed that students who take handwritten notes can retain and process information better. Writing down added content and main ideas is key, said Robert Bailey, UFs supplemental instructions coordinator. As the persons talking, youre just typing everything theyre saying, he said, as opposed to listening actively and saying, OK, thats important, and writing it down. Vila, a UF chemistry freshman, said her laptop shortens her note-taking time, but sometimes it hinders her processing abilities. It doesnt give me a chance to actually develop what theyre saying and interpret it, she said. Bailey stressed the importance of students writing down the main ideas of the lectures and then going back into their notes, organizing them and adding information from PowerPoints and textbooks. The Teaching Center, located at Broward Housing, offers workshops and online videos on note-taking, as well as a link to the Cornell Note-taking System, which Bailey said he recommends for students.Study: handwritten notes better for understanding than typedNA TIONAL THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSAN FRANCISCO Three judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals are set to hear arguments Monday on gay marriage bans in Idaho, Nevada and Hawaii. The hearings come as gay marriage supporters have piled up legal victories in federal courts across the country this year, nullifying bans in more than a dozen states. On Thursday, the federal appeals court in Chicago rejected bans in Wisconsin and Indiana. Same-sex marriage opponents, however, scored a legal victory last week when a federal judge in Louisiana upheld that states ban. Until all 50 states get on board, its a legal battle from state to state, said Tara Newberry, one of the plaintiffs in the Nevada case, who wants to marry her longtime partner. The map is changing. But until the Supreme Court of the United States makes the determination, its state-by-state. The same day as the Chicago court ruled, 15 states that allow gay marriage and 17 that dont asked the U.S. Supreme Court to settle the issue once and for all. The Mormon church and four religious organizations also asked the Supreme Court to intervene. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in a statement Friday, said it joined a friend-of-the-court brief asking the high court to hear Utahs marriage case. It was joined by The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Association of Evangelicals, the Ethics & Religious Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Each teaches that marriage is between a man and a woman. The pro-gay marriage rulings have used the rationale the nations high court used in June 2013 when it invalidated the core of the riage as only between a man and a woman for That ruling didnt directly address whether states can impose bans and led to an explosion of litigation. But an increasing number of federal and state judges are adopting the courts reasoning in the 2013 case to invalidate bans, ratcheting up pressure on the Supreme Court to address the issue directly, legal analysts say. The 9th Circuit panel is under no deadline to rule.Idaho, Nevada, Hawaii gay marriage cases go to high court The department accepted bids for the property until Jan. 29, 2014 at 10:30 a.m..Mara BurgerDEP spokeswomanNewberry As the persons talking, youre just typing everything theyre saying, as opposed to listening actively and saying, OK, thats important, and writing it down.Robert Baileysupplemental instructions coordinator

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2014 Santos-Lamb, Snyder have career nights against the LonghornsThe battle at the blocker position was the deciding factor. Texas Sara Hattis, listed at 6-foot-4, and Haley Eckerman, 6-foot-3, rendered UFs middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan ineffective for a majority of the night with seven kills and three blocks. Instead, redshirt junior Noami Santos-Lamb made a career-high 14 kills. Its really good to play teams with that physical type of blocking early in the season to see what you need to work on, Santos-Lamb said. Its awesome to have Khat Bell up there and Sara Hattis up there to really see how much I need to work on. Florida will continue play against its slate of top-20 opponents when it faces No. 15 San Diego and No. 6 USC next week. Its tough but its exciting. I mean, we dont get this until the tournament. And this is the best preparation we can get, Snyder said. This is what we want tough competition.

Neirons a very good football player, coach Will Muschamp said. Hes a guy that can really play well in space as far as a linebackers concerned. Hes got good off-the-ball instincts. If we can get him are probably going to slide over to Dante with Neiron.

It felt good. outs and not allowing the Eagles to earn a defensive line, allowing the linemen to rewhich has been a goal Muschamp and Durkin set for the season. cording nine tackles behind the line of There wasnt one time that I went on thats always a plus. But despite Floridas success on de2.3 yards per play and only allowing the need to be made. Defensively, I thought we did OK.
