I think everyone deserves the opportunities to be known, and thats what UF is about, the biology sophomore said. As the only major registered political party, members of the Swamp Party set up posters on Turlington Plaza and at the Reitz on Monday to collect ideas from passing students for its Fall 2014 campaign platform. The biannual platform generation will continue today. The other four registered parties did not choose to campaign. A common topic was seen on all poster boards: more safety and lighting in lieu of recent assaults on campus. One student wrote, Lighting, UF is too dark at night. poster boards, front and back, with student suggestions. Swamp Party spokeswoman Katie Backstrand said the partys few weeks.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 Yolandy Michel / AlligatorFlasks for Fido CAMPUS JULIA MCBEEAlligator Contributing WriterMore than 700 UF undergraduate students applied to medical schools across the country last year, and with a new version of the Medical College Admission Test debuting this Spring, questions have been raised about which test version current undergrads should take. The new MCAT will debut this April and includes additional test topics, a nearly doubled testing period and updated test questions in order to coordinate with current college prerequisites and modern medicine. For students applying to UFs College of Medicine, director of admissions Leila Amiri said the school has no test preference because the current test is being eliminated altogether. We look more closely to what they do outside of their MCAT scores, Amiri said. We evaluate on the students overall application. Previously the three-hour-plus exam focused on biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry and physics. Now students are also expected to know biochemistry, psychology and sociology for the six-hour-plus exam. The science that underlies the medicine as well as the way medicine is practiced in this country has changed dramatically in the last 20-plus years, said Owen Farcy, Kaplan test-prep director. The new types of questions and testtaking skills will focus on research, experimental design, graphical analysis and data interpretation, and Farcy said it will require a lot more stamina and focus for students who are taking it. Really what we recommend is that the student takes the version of the test that they think they will be the most comfortable with and the best prepared for, Farcy said. Amiri said UF will not change its prerequisites to supplement the new subject material because the current liberal-arts requirements cover those areas already. Jake Rubin, a 21-year-old UF microbiology senior, took the original MCAT in May. those subjects, Rubin said. Especially biochem because it laid the foundation for the upper level classes Im taking now. will be administered in January.Changes to the MCAT make pre-med decisions unclear

and training of researchers, Garcia said, and one of the colleges missions is the development and training of future oral health providers. Garcia was selected out of more than 50 applicants after a nationwide search by UF. The search began in December after the previous dean, Dr. Teresa A. Dolan, stepped down in the Spring of 2013. Dr. Robert Burne, who was on the search committee, said Garcia was recommended from a highly competitive list of national and international applicants. Shes an exceptional individual, Burne said, and shes trained as a dentist, so she has a very good understanding of what it means to be a dentist. Burne, the chair of the UF department of oral biology and associate dean for research, said the committee had to reopen the search in March after it chose four out of about 40 applicants, none of whom were selected. Garcia was then selected to head the college by UF Health President David Guzick. Garcia, a graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University and University of Michigan, has received awards including the National Institutes of Health Directors Award for Mentoring and the U.S. Public Health Service Jack D. Robertson Award for outstanding long-term dedication and service to improve the nations oral health. The college and university as a whole is known to be highly collaborative and so there are lots of partnerships existing across the colleges, centers and institutes, Garcia said, and obviously Im interested in these opportunities and how I can help to expand them. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014Megan Reeves / Alligator Staff Nathan Gulbis, 23, talks with his friend Wes Hay, 23, while snorkeling at Ginnie Springs on Sept. 1. The two drove from St. Petersburg to celebrate Labor Day with friends. MELISSA SMITHAlligator Contributing WriterDavid Lee knows Floridas springs. The 22-year-old UF environmental engineering senior has led a handful of Travel and Recreation Program journeys through the states waterways since January of last year. So when the state legislature announced a $69 million surge in springs funding, Lee was pleased. Its an awesome thing to see conservation happening around Florida, he said. It allows us to continue to do what we love and take people out and teach them about the environment. The Joint Legislative Budget Commission approved the multimillion-dollar conservation plan proposed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection on Wednesday. Approval of the funding increase greenlights the departments 27-project plan to rejuvenate the springs, bringing the total amount of springs-conservation investments to more than $100 million in the past two years. Projects scheduled in the springs restoration plan include assessing water quality in Mark Wray owns eight Florida springs in the Santa Fe River System, including Ginnie and Blue springs. Wray said evaluating water quality is the states biggest issue. Whats truly hurting the springs is agriculture, bar none, Wray said. Thats what we have to get a handle on. Nitrates and pesticides are having a huge impact. The Santa Fe River System, which includes 81 private and state-owned springs around northeast Florida, currently holds an Outstanding Florida Water designation from the DEP. According to the departments website, this designation is intended to protect the naturally exceptional quality of the water by prohibiting direct and indirect discharges that could lower the waters quality.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSFREETOWN, Sierra Leone Sierra Leone accused the World Health Organization on Monday of being sluggish in facilitating an evacuation of a doctor who died from Ebola before she could be sent out of the country for medical care. Dr. Olivet Buck died Saturday, hours after the U.N. health agency said it could not help evacuate her to Germany. Buck is the fourth Sierra Leonean doctor to die in an outbreak that has also touched Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Senegal. The West African outbreak has been blamed for more than 2,400 deaths, and experts say it is out of control. The U.S. has called an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council for this week to discuss the crisis. At a heated news conference Monday, a statement saying Buck is the second doctor from that country to die because negotiations on evacuation dragged on. Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, the countrys top Ebola expert, was being considered for evacuation when he died of the disease in July. In both the cases of late Dr. Khan and Dr. Buck, we have observed a sluggish willingness by WHO in facilitating medical evacuation of Sierra Leonean Ebola-infected doctors for advance treatment abroad, said a statement from a presidential communications task force read out by Deputy Minister for Political and Public Affairs Karamoh Kabba. He said the two doctors died while their fates hung in negotiations. But WHO responded Monday that it can only evacuate its own staff, and that given the number of health workers becoming infected, the solution is not to evacuate them all anyway. Some 300 health care workers have been infected so far, about half of whom have died.Sierra Leone: WHO too slow to help doctors with Ebola Its an awesome thing to see conservation happening around Florida.David LeeUF environmental engineering senior

Street cafes and beaches are packed with people until late at night. Families crowd the few public parks. Wedding halls are booked solid. Gazans who endured 50 days of devastating Israeli bombardment are now eager to enjoy some life. Far from a celebration, however, Gazans themselves acknowledge the revelry is only to thinly mask trauma and widespread despair. Many complain that none of the gains they hoped for from the war have been realized. We go out just to steal a moment of joy, said 33-year-old bank employee Rami Ali, sitting with friends at a seaside cafe. We dont know what will happen tomorrow; we might have another war. The burst of liveliness is startling. Cafes on the streets or on Gazas Mediterranean beaches are main venues for nightlife because under Hamas, there are no cinemas or theaters. ing ended, coffeehouses have been thronged with men, women and families. Commercial streets are choked with shoppers. The Hamas government appears to have been caught off guard. Last week, authorities banned street parties, saying they were acting out of respect for the families of the dead. That put an end to bachelor celebrations traditionally held in the streets ahead of weddings but not other forms of nightlife. The war was the longest and deadliest of three Hamas-Israel wars in less than six years. More than 2,000 Palestinians, including 500 children, were killed, 11,000 wounded and close to 100,000 made homeless out of a population of 1.8 million. Some 50 families were wiped out, with at least 300 women killed, and up to 1,500 children were orphaned, according to Mona al-Shawa of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights. We are a people with an exceptional ability to endure, but the most painful thing is the feeling that you are living in an oppressive world and no one is taking your side, alGazan is the feeling of oppression. Seventy-two people were killed on the Israeli side, including six civilians, in a war that erupted on July 8 when Israel launched a massive aerial bombardment of Gaza Hamas and other Gaza militants. Even amid the rush for enjoyment, Gazans grimly note that none of Hamas stated objectives lifting the blockade and allowing the opening of an airport and a seaport was achieved. The only positive outcome was that Israel extended the limit for shores from three to six miles, bringing greater hauls of seafood in the markets. Mahmoud Daher, director of the U.N. World Health Organizations in domestic violence, which he attributes to the sense of frustration.

CHABELI HERRERAAlligator Staff Writercherrera@alligator.orgTwenty-two goats, one rabbit and one puppy have died as a result of negligent care on behalf of UF, according to a complaint issued Monday by animal rights group Stop Animal Exploitation NOW. In two complaints issued to the U.S. Department of Agriculture since August, Stop Animal Exploitation NOW details several incidents beginning in 2011 that violated the Animal Welfare Act. We believe the public has a right to know what goes on in those laboratories, said executive director Michael Budkie. volves the death of 22 goats due to severe anemia.In the 2011 incident, staff and graduate students performing studies on the goats failed to treat or euthanize them after the study was completed. As a result, three died spontaneously and 19 were subsequently euthanized. tober 2012, a New Zealand white rabbit was found dead hanging out of its cage door after it wedged itIn the most recent complaint, Stop Animal Exploitation NOW cites a May 2013 UF report documenting a veterinary technician who neglected to administer appropriate treatment to a dog diagnosed with glaucoma. Although the UF-prescribed treatment was intended to be daily, the veterinary technician failed to deliver it as instructed. The technician was suspended and resigned before the completion of the investigation. The Stop Animal Exploitation NOW complaint further details a May 2012 USDA inspection, which found that a beagle puppy was not fed properly and was then euthanized due to severe weight loss. UF reported the incidents to the National Institute of Health, however, Budkie said the institute Stop Animal Exploitation NOW hopes the versity $10,000 per infraction. What we are seeing here is a long-term pattern of failure to follow what are really very basic federal regulations, Budkie said. Why should we believe that they are capable of doing science?

I am so unconcerned about these minor welfare violations because it gives people the impression that the other 99 percent of what they are doing is humane, Marino said. He continued, Nothing could be further from the truth. The experiments that they are doing within the guidelines of the law are far more heinous and disturbing than any of these violations.

Scotts policy on transportation rife with hypocrisyIf theres one thing Gov. Rick Scott claims to stand for, its lowering taxes. In May 2013, Scott boasted about having cut taxes in Florida 24 times. By May of this year, the number of tax cuts has reached 40, according to tweets sent out by Scotts campaign. Leaving aside the dubious accuracy of these claims, which Politico and other fact-checking organizations have explored cally responsible, anti-tax conservative. es of ordinary Floridians might be surprised to hear about his new plans to install toll lanes on Floridas major highways. Scott is undertaking this massive infrastructure project, which the Tampa Bay Times says could be the largest in Florida history, without any approval from the legislature or from voters. Unsurprisingly, one of the motivations behind the creation of these toll lanes is the corrupt crony capitalism that has become a hallmark of Scotts administration. A report from the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting found that the projects were inspired by studies from the Reason Foundation, a libertarian think tank that has received funding from major toll-lane developers. These developers stand to earn millions of dollars if not more from the toll lanes. The Times also reported that Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad is a former employee of one of these major developers. During his time as head of the DOT, Prasad has approved billions of dollars in toll-lane projects, including funds that have gone directly to his former employer. Supporters of the new toll lanes argue that they will make with similar infrastructure projects. In 2011, Scott declined to accept federal funding for highspeed rail projects and argued that the initiative would be far too costly to taxpayers. Scott made these claims despite widespread agreement that high-speed rail would have boosted the economy and made faster and more convenient transportation. Scott did eventually provide tepid support for high-speed rail projects, but only after ensuring that Florida East Coast Industries, a private company with connections to Scotts former chief The high-speed rail project, All Aboard Florida, has subsequently applied for a federal loan of $1.5 billion, so Scotts claims about the unmatched superiority of private enterprise and the free market ring pathetically hollow. Floridians should already know: Scott is interested in serving corporations and the wealthy, not Florida voters. Florida taxpayers are irrelevant to Scott, so long as his corporate allies and campaign donors reap the ultimate reward. Florida undoubtedly deserves better. 156 TOTAL VOTES60% YES 40% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgMondays question: Will you miss Sarkara Sweets cupcakes? Todays question: Do you think UF should be sued for the lab animal deaths?Talking about mental illness is a mustWhen legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams died about a month ago, hearts broke around the world. Social media erupted with grief-stricken statuses and tweets mourning the loss of such a beloved and talented person, someone whom many of us remember and Aladdin. Most of us expressed shock and dismay that someone with so much externally expressed energy and passion was suffering so much on the inside. While Williams death was a tragedy for all who knew and loved him, it also served as an important reminder about the devastating effects of untreated mental illness. Amid the pain and anguish, Robin Williams suicide shed light on this issue, which is so important yet often ignored. The connection between Williams death and his battle with severe depression dominated the headlines for weeks. People all across the country felt empowered to share their own experiences with depression, bipolar disorder and other mental health conditions. Suddenly, everyone upset about his death became instant advocates for mental health, criticizing the stigmatization of mental illness and demanding a more comprehensive mental-health care system. Finally, a national conversation about mental illness began, a conversation that was well overdue. But when the media frenzy around Robin Williams death calmed down, so did the impassioned pleas for mental-health awareness. Once the issue was no longer trending on Facebook or Twitter, no one wanted to discuss it, and the conversation was over nearly as quickly as it had started. We cannot allow the issue of mental illness to continually be ignored. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, about 13.6 million Americans are living with serious mental illnesses, including depression or bipolar disorder. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., and more than 90 percent of people who die by suicide had one or more mental illnesses. These are frightening statistics. Mental illness does not discriminate. It can affect anyone at any time, and the results can be shattering. The alarming facts about mental illness prove that we owe it to ourselves, our friends, our families and our communities to make mental health a priority. Right now, it clearly isnt. Access to mental-health care is extremely limited and costly. According to the Washington Post, a mental-health professional than any other type of doctor. Even when services are available, many insurance companies do not consider mental illness to be a primary health concern. Even more troubling is that in times of economic decline, recession, states dropped a combined $1.8 billion from their mental-health care budgets. The cuts in Florida have been particularly drastic, now ranking a pathetic 49th in mentalhealth care funding nationally. Under these circumstances, its hardly surprising that many people with a mental illness decide not to seek treatwith the overwhelming cost is enough to discourage most people from pursuing medical care, even if they are experiencing tremendous pain and suffering. We cannot wait for the death of another beloved public To help combat the sad reality of our countrys inadequate mental-health care system, its up to all of us to express our support and offer encouragement to those who are dealing with mental illness. We must not allow anyone to try to face that battle alone and suffer in silence, something that happens all too often in America today. We must continue to share our personal experiences with mental illness and also offer to listen to the stories of others. If we truly want to make a difference and shape the future for the better, we have to keep talking. The conversation about mental health must continue.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7#BetterUF platform generation ends todayDear UF students, This campaign season, Swamp Party is driving platform generation in a more allencompassing, student-focused direction. Yesterday, Swamp Party candidates were on Turlington Plaza and in the Reitz Union area with white boards, markers and a new twist: in what they would like to see Student Govday of this new approach was very successful. We encourage students to stop by Turlington Plaza and the Reitz today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the last opportunity to write about how they would like to #BetterUF. For example, a student might write: I want to see increased nighttime safety in order to #BetterUF. SG has responded to this issue by bringing the new transportation system Uber to campus in order to ensure students have a safe and reliable way of getting home. #BetterUF will allow the Swamp Party to reach out to every student demographic and see what he or she wants us to do. Students are also encouraged to tweet @UFSwamp and share their ideas for the Swamp Party if they are unable to stop by one of our stations. We would love to see as many students out there with ideas no matter how big or small. Go Gators! Katie Backstrand UF Swamp Party spokeswomanLetters to the EditorRecently, Nickelodeons hit childrens show, Dora the Explorer, had a major makeover. Dora, the shows protagonist, was previously a vaguely androgynous 5or 6-yearold child who regaled Americas toddlers with basic Spanish-language lessons and a couple of cute catchphrases most famously Swiper, no swiping! Her new look has transformed her into a preteen, complete with all the accessories and mannerisms a girl is supposed to take on when she enters puberty. Doras new persona includes makeup, a a troop of fun new girlfriends to take on the city together. The show even has new preteen boy characters to play potential crushes and a massive line of Dora and Friends: Into the City! products to rake in cash for the creators. What was once an educational, wholesome childrens program has become Sex and the City marketed to a preteen audience. In some ways, the changes make sense. Dora has been on the air since 2000. Shes growing up, right? Its time for a makeover. Its no surprise the shows designers the gender roles and heteronormativity that characterize American culture. Most other current childrens TV shows are also dripping with sexism and fail to include diverse aspects of gender and sexuality. So why the fuss about Dora? The answer is complicated. When I heard about the Dora makeover, I was saddened. It wasnt because of the loss of the old Dora the peak popularity of Dora the Explorer missed my generation by a few years but because Dora getting older required a complete, socially acceptable makeover. American media and social norms put a lot of pressure on girls to conform to the ideal female stereotypes they have created. There are expectations for a females body, her career path and which milestones she should reach at certain points in her life. When we enter college, we face pressure to conform to what the media wants us to become in our later years. Our societys cultural norms say every woman should be a young, powerful 20-something who has her future planned out and goes out with her girlfriends every weekend. Society tells us females must adapt to the norm if we expect to be acknowledged and have our voices heard. We have to say the right things, act the right way and even eat the right foods. The change isnt all bad. College is the perfect time for young adults to discover themselves and, sometimes, to become something new. Despite the transitory nature of the teenage and college experiences, Im upset with the media and the pressure of society havWe are sometimes forced into roles that we havent chosen roles with which we are uncomfortable. We may regret who we beand obey the rules. The media is a powerful and valuable tool, but the pressure it puts on women to adapt to a lofty ideal often results in disconless American females. even 10-year-old girls watching Dora and Friends: Into the City! may feel pressure to start remaking themselves into the perfect preteen in order to be noticed. With that kind of power, what impact might the media have on a generation of young college-aged women trying to shape their own adult lives? To what ideal will American women seek to conform: the one the media has created for us or our own? Sally Greider is a UF English and public relations sophomore. Her columns appear on Tuesdays.New Dora sends wrong ideaColumn Imagine you are a citizen of one of the African countries where the Ebola virus has spread so far: Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone. You have a friend who is at home exhausted with a fever. She has lost her appetite due to abdominal pain and she complains of headaches and diarrhea. You see the signs. Youve already lost a brother and a father. The medics in bodysuits say they are going to help those who feel sick. You saw the care in their eyes, so you let your family walk into the white tents of death. You will not let your friend be abducted by the aliens. You hide her when they come around. Only a few of their captives come out of the tents alive, and those who dont cant even see their family one last time because they might become what was that word? Oh infected. You didnt get to say goodbye to your brother, and your dad said the aliens are just trying to help. Now hes gone, too, and you arent sure what to believe. You wouldnt ever think of sending your friend. President Barack Obama said a national security priority is now placed on the Ebola epidemic in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBCs Meet the Press. There will be troops sent overseas to set up isolation units and to provide security for public health workers. Now these Africans will not only be scared to death of being abducted, but also of being shot while rebelling against the aliens stealing their loved ones. The U.S. is scared of the virus seeping into the States. Africa is scared of the international aid. First of all, the U.S. needs to pipe down. If the virus did enter the country, our medical infrastructure would quarantine the problem almost immediately. This outbreak is not a threat to the U.S., and it is despicable to me how much attention we give to it. It is a threat to our fellow humans, not to our own safety. Its so unlikely to become as much of a problem in America as it is in Africa its almost a nonissue. And in Africa, the people need to believe we are on the same side, working toward the same goal. Along with making the African fear of treatment worse, scientists and medics should not have to be protected by the U.S. armed services while doing their job. There is no approved cure for Ebola other than treating the symptoms as they appear. The cases that have increased chances of survival are those where the disease is Predictably, the mortality rate in this 2014 outbreak in Africa is worse because of the fear of treatment. In order to combat this, understanding needs to be reached among all of us. Its an awareness of whats going on. Its an honest humanitarian outreach from the U.S. and an acceptance of help from the Africans. Sierra Cymes writes for The Rocky Mountain Collegian. A version of this column originally appeared on UWire.African hostility, US fear will not solve Ebola crisisUWireSally Greideropinions@alligator.org By now youve seen it. the railing. Rice dragging her unconscious body from the elevator. In the eyes of the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell, that series of images was worthy of a two-game pension only after the video footage created public outcry. University of California, Los Angeles coach Jim Mora saw it as a chance to teach his players. I talk to the team about just about every social issue that comes across the wire, Mora said Thursday after practice. Theres great learning opportunities there. And if our guys the right way to do something, then we do that. Moras approach is the right way to handle such situations, but it doesnt seem like a common one among his colleagues in the NFL. Too often in sports, the emphasis is placed on winning, with everything and arrests often result in the punitive equivalent of a time-out in the corner as long as players keep perTake the San Francisco 49ers, where Mora served on the coaching staff from 1997 to 2003. Defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested Aug. 30 on suspicion of felony domestic violence. His punishment game of the season. Jed York, the 49ers CEO, said he will give McDonald his due process before doling out a team punishment, which makes sense. It upholds the innocent until proven guilty mantra. And technically, a team cant suspend a player if he hasnt been proven guilty, though it can still bench or release him. But that sends the wrong message. It gives off the idea that the 49ers and the NFL community care more about the three tackles McDonald than the fact that he was arrested Thats not the message Mora wants. He made that clear last season. When offensive tackle Torian White was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault last November, Mora immediately suspended him from the team. There was no waiting for due process. Even though White was never convicted, he was dismissed from the team. Mora isnt alone in the college world in taking swift punitive action. UCLAs Week 3 opponent, University of Texas, has been mired this offseason as new coach Charlie Strong has been demanding higher standards from his players. After Texas wide receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander were arrested and charged with felony sexual assault, Strong immediately suspended them and dismissed them from the program. Sanders played a key role for important member of the offense again this season. Strong, who disfrom the team and suspended three the men he coaches need to be just Athletes need to be held to higher standards, the same standards that all other common people are held to. The quality of the player comes second to the quality of the person. College coaches are starting to pros to get on their level. Kevin Bowman is a columnist for The Daily Bruin.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Kan Li / Alligator StaffNational Chicken Lovers Day NATIONAL THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON A federal judge ruled Monday that a Florida woman can pursue her lawsuit alleging the government invaded her privacy in the scandal over former CIA director David Petraeus. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Jill Kelley of Tampa can move ahead with claims that the FBI and Defense Department violated information about her to the news media. In 2012, Kelley complained to the FBI when an unknown person, later eus biographer and mistress, sent her harassing emails. Kelleys name and some of the harassing emails were leaked to the news media amid the sensational disclosures about Petraeus, a former Army general. The leaks also linked Marine Gen. John Allen, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, as being under investigation for allegedly inappropriate communications with Kelley. leys lawyers, the government falsely told one news outlet the emails between Allen and Kelley were the equivalent of phone sex. The lawyers argued it was likely that Kelleys treatment was motivated by sexual discrimination. The Pentagons inspector general exonerated Allen, who subsequently retired. On Monday, Jackson threw out more than a dozen allegations in husband, Scott, but allowed a single claim to move forward a charge that the FBI and Defense Department violated the Privacy Act. The act is a post-Watergate law designed to protect people from unwarranted invasions of privacy by federal agencies that maintain sensitive information about them. In a statement, Kelley said she and her husband are pleased with the judges decision. We have asked our attorneys to move forward quickly with discovery, to uncover the relevant facts and motivations from all the governJudge: Petraeus lawsuit can proceed THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES Police said Monday they followed proper protocol when they an actress and her boyfriend while investigating a 911 call alleging lewd conduct in a parked car. Actress Daniele Watts, who appeared in Django unjustly handcuffed and detained Thursday after refusand walking away from ofof lewd conduct in a car along Ventura BoulevarD. Watts said in an interview Monday that she and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas, were kissing in the car and fully clothed, with nothing improper going on. She and Lucas wrote about the incident on Facebook and posted photos of a crying Watts in handcuffs. Lucas said he suspects onlookers assumed Watts to be a prostitute and him a client because she is black and he is white. Los Angeles police Lt. Andrew Neiman said citizens are required to identify themselves if requested to do so by suspicion to believe an offense may have been committed. In this case, he said, reasonable suspicion was created by the 911 call, and Watts and location described by the caller. Celebrity website TMZ posted audio of the exchange between Watts and police. Neiman and Bill McCoy, a spokesman for the couple, said the audio is authentic, though its origin is unknown. On the recording, a police sergeant is heard telling Watts, Somebody called, which gives me the right to be here, so it gives me the right Neiman said it is unlikely that a recording of the 911 call will be made public. The results of the LAPDs internal investigation of the matter, which could take several months, are also unlikely to be released, he said. demeanor was an emotional trigger for her because of personal and historical expepolice.

Alhassan FOOTBALL RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator Staff Writer@RagjUF Quarterback Jeff Driskel was not ready to play when he non-garbage time snap of his career. He did not know how to prepare and did not take it seriously that he was one injury away from being the guy at Florida. Then John Brantley went down shortly before halftime and Driskel took the reins on Oct. 1, 2011, against Alabama whether he liked it or not. The opponent was no slouch the colors here remain the same, different players donning the Crimson and White with Driskel presumably a bit more prepared than he was last time. They werent good, Driskel said of his memories from that night. Didnt know how to prepare at that time to play anybody, especially Alabama as good as they were. Just going in not knowing what youre doing is not a good situation. Im not going to let that happen again. Im going to do whatever I can this week to prepare and be as ready as I can. I know thats best for the football team. So, thats what Im going to do. Driskel said Monday that his lack of preparedness hurt him on both the mental and physical sides of the game. He made a mistake resulting in a bobbled snap, was rolled up on and injured. Now things are different for Driskel. He is the man in charge of Floridas new-look offense and he is ready to instruct his understudy on how to be ready at the drop of a hat. Going in as the starting quarterback, you know what youve got to prepare for, you know what youre getting into, Driskel said. At that time, I didnt know how close I was to playing. You dont realize youre one snap away from playing. Thats where I went wrong as a freshman. Im going to let Treon (Harris) know, I could go down any play. You might have to go in and play well, so be ready to do that.

On Friday in Palo Alto, Calif., No. 6 Florida (5-2) had the opportunity to face off against No. 4 Stanford (6-0-1). In a very evenly matched game played at a high level by both teams, Florida would eventually fall to Stanford on an overtime penalty kick. Coach Becky Burleigh said despite the loss, she saw many positive things from her team that they can continue to build and improve upon. ence, Burleigh said.

The Gator alumnae showed up in droves either to watch their former coach make history or to reminisce on their own time with Florida. The reason did not matter. It only mattered to Wise that her former pupils were there, basking in the moment and sharing it with her, too. I think what really made it special was how many of our former players were in the stands at USC, Wise said. That group, they were a part of a whole lot of wins. So we really did get to share it.

GRAHAM HALLAlligator Writer@Graham311While he will not run as part of Floridas cross country team on Saturday, senior Mark Parrish looks to continue the success he saw at UF when he competes independently at the 26th Mountain Dew Invitational in Gainesville. Parrish, who exhausted his four years of cross country eligibility last year, will be noticeably absent for a deep Florida squad that aims to repeat on the years of success theyve seen at their lone home meet of the season. Coach Paul Spangler is just happy to see Parrish back out there, even if it is not with his mens team a team that has claimed the team title nine times out of the last 10 years at the Mountain Dew Invitational. With the collegiate system, you can race unattached, Spangler said. And a lot of athletes will do that, even if theyre redshirting or if theyre post-collegiate, which is why Mark can compete. Parrish has only improved as his career progressed. He broke the schools 8k record at the Wisconsin adidas Invitational, stopping the clock at 23:34, one second faster than the mark set by Jeremy Criscione in 2008. He broke his personal best 10k at the 2013 NCAA South Region Championships with a time of 29:44.24 and was crowned the NCAA South Region Cross program since Steve Zieminski carried home the award in 2004. And he has not slowed down. Mark Parrish has looked phenomenal in practice, Spangler said. seen him. And while Spangler wants nothing but success for Parrish, it is clear that the coach is focused on the training his current runners are doing. Redshirt sophomore Mac Reynolds, determined to improve on a solid freshman campaign, opened the season strong by winWestern Carolina Invitational on Aug. 30. ish being fourth with 15:31.60 at the FLRunners.com 5k last year, Reynolds eclipsed that mark by nearly 18 seconds in Cullowhee, N.C., with a time of 15:13.75. Im very pleased with the job Mac did, hes somebody who came in here as a freshman and worked extremely hard every single day, Spangler said. We saw a little bit during track season, him starting to break through to the next level, and now we are starting to see the results of his hard work with much more consistent performances. ished third at last years Mountain Dew Invitational, improvement will be expected for the young team. The Gators are without their top six last year: Agata Strausa, who graduated, and then-sophomore Julie Macedo, who is away from the team this year for personal reasons. Instead, the team will rely on dynamic performances from freshman Lauren Brasure, redshirt freshman Becky Greene and sophomore Taylor Tubbs. Tubbs and redshirt junior Macy Huskey were the only two Gator women still on the roster to Mountain Dew Invitational, coming in 13th and 17th, respectively.

Parrish to race in Floridas lone home cross country meetCOLLEGE F OOTBALL MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyForget everything said about Georgia being the new frontrunner to win the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division. South Carolina two weeks after being walloped by Texas A&M at home pulled out a gutsy 38-35 win at home to stay alive in the SEC East race. Following all the SEC East games on Saturday, Florwas earned despite needing triple overtime to stave off Kentucky a team Florida has beat 28 consecutive years. That is not exactly encouraging for Florida fans, who will watch their team travel to Tuscaloosa to take on the No. 3 Alabama on Saturday. Besides Florida, Missouri is the only undefeated team in the East that hasnt been talked about. Without defensive ends Michael Sam and Kony Ealy and no Dorial Green-Beckham on offense the Tigers are quietly beating teams. Missouri opens SEC play with a road game against South Carolina on Sept. 27. Remember, no one was talking about this team much until the end of last season when they found themselves atop the SEC East and made it to Atlanta. The SEC West has talent across the board: It would not be surprising if the SEC West champion has two division losses come the SEC Championship in December. ranked among the top-10 teams No. 3 Alabama, No. 5 Auburn, No. 6 Texas A&M, No. 8 LSU and No. 10 Ole Miss. The highest ranked team from the SEC East is Georgia, which is somehow sitting ahead of South Carolina at No. 13. ent to contend for a College Football Playoff, but having more losses from playing in a gauntlet of a division could hurt their chances. Ole Miss could surprise people in their matchup at home against Alabama in a few weeks. The Rebels will likely still be undefeated heading into the week six matchup. Puzzling Losses Put Question Marks Above Teams: Virginia Tech, which went into Columbus, Ohio, and upset then-No. 4 Ohio State in Week 2, cominexplicably losing to an unranked East Carolina. The Hokies loss makes OSU look even worse, and perhaps hurts their chances at getting back in the playoff to represent the Big Ten. Louisville went on the road to Virginia that came into the game with a 10-game FBS losing streak and lost 25. The Cards were the new favorites to win the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division following their week one win over Miami. USC, which beat a talented Stanford team on the road in week three to give them the No. 9 ranking, followed it up by getting upset on the road by unranked Boston College. The Pac-12 now looks even more favorable for Oregon moving forward. Who Are You?: Notre Dame, which shut out Michiing out a 14-point victory over a bad Purdue team in Indianapolis. The notion that the Irish are the one team that can upset Florida State this season looks a little less promising following the underwhelming performance. And UCLA, 2014s sleeper playoff pick heading into the year, barely beat a Texas team that had been beaten by a combined 65 points in weeks one and two.
