WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 Kat Anthony / AlligatorFind BaeManuel Estopinan, a UF political science junior, calls out to the winning bidder at the annual Hispanic Heritage Month date auction. CHAMP WILL HAND OUT FOOD TODAY. TAYLOR RUSSELLAlligator Contributing Writer Students no longer have to choose between paying for tuition or food with the help of the Christian Home Area Ministry Partners food giveaway today. The need for food among universities has escalated with the 27 percent increase in tuition, Betty Jones, director of Christian Home Area Ministry Partners (CHAMP), said. CHAMP will pass out free food at the Baptist Student Union at 1604 W. University time the mobile food pantry organization will hand out food in close proximity to campus. CHAMP will provide about 2,000 pounds of food to students, including breads, pastries, fresh fruits, vegetables, cereal, rice and frozen meats. We think there are stunitely need some help, Jones said. Jones said they are hoping to host the mobile pantries at least once a month. If sororities, fraternities or other student organizations help sponsor CHAMP, then even more mobile pantries will become available. The charity, which has been operating for a year, partners with local food pantry Bread of the Mighty Food Bank to provide food for its giveaways. Over the summer, we got many calls from college students just looking for food, Jones said. Jones said when students often dont have the money to pay for food. Students like Devon Leasure, an 18-year-old UF political science freshman, believe that the food pantry will help out a lot of students. Students need to spend their money on education and tuition, and many might not have the luxury to buy things as necessary as food, Devon said. Although Kaley Pinner, a 19-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore, supports CHAMP and the assistance it brings to students, she said students could abuse the pantries by taking food when they are not truly in need. out there, Pinner said. I just hope the organization is used in the right way. Organizations looking to help out with the mobile food bank can donate $200 to put on their own food drive. Jones said the mobile panbut if the pantry has food left over, students may walk through the line again for a second time. The goal is to leave with nothing but the shirts on our backs and empty boxes, Jones said. Food giveaway for low-income studentsBUSINESS ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterUFs Sid Martin Biotechnology Incubator was recognized as a national leader in technology-based economic development in the eyes of the State Science and Technology Institute. The incubator accepted the 2014 Excellence in Technology-Based Economic Development award Monday at the SSTIs Annual Conference in Chicago SSTI is an organization that had policy makers and people from 42 The incubator program won the award for its ability to commercialize technologies, said Patti Breedlove, UF Sid Martin Biotechnology director. That means that we are one of the players here locally that helps research, from the university and other places, turn into relevant products and services to make the world a better place, she said. The incubator is a 40,000-squarefoot bioscience complex located in equipment and greenhouses. Mentors, investors and other experienced professionals come together at the facility to grow and shape their ideas into game-changing products, from gene therapy to green energy to safer agricultural products. It has already created 2,000 local jobs. Were able to help these researchers go from two, three guys in a lab to a company that eventually goes on and grows on its own into a huge company, said Nathalie McCrate, marketing coordinator for the incubator. Breedlove said the program has blossomed recently, with its companies attracting more than $1.2 billion in funding. This is the incubators fourth notable award in two years. The wonderful thing about it is that every time this happens to one of our organizations in the county, it just helps put the whole Gainesville area on the map, Breedlove said. For people to know that this is a great town to do bio-tech and tech. award like this. well on the university. It draws attention to the enormous amount of high-quality research going on at UF, she said, and UFs sophistication and being able to create start-up companies based on that technology.UF Sid Martin incubator gets award


nalyn Beth Lachut, a previous Canopy Apartments property manager, allegedly stole two scooters, staged them as if they were parked illegally and towed them, calling them in as abandoned. Ultimate will still provide call-in towing services and respond to both roadside assistance customers and accident emergencies. Roam towing is expected to resume again sometime next week. Wade Swikle, who graduated from UF in 2012 with a telecommunication degree, said he could see this roam towing suspension becoming a problem for businesses. If students are parking in Midtown to go to class, thats obviously going to cause problems for businesses that are there, Swikle said. Swikle, 24, had his car towed by Ultimate Towing in July 2013 while at a friends house. Swikle said he asked the tow-truck driver to unhook his car but was told hed have to pay $76 to retrieve it from the companys impound lot. Swikle They kind of go a little bit overboard, and sometimes, it doesnt always make sense, Swikle said. Alyssa Magill, a 19-year-old UF animal sciences sophomore, said her friend received a $150 ticket last week and now worries about getting towed and ticketed. She lives in Broward Hall and said she parks across from Hume Hall before walking home. Still, Magill said the suspension might cause problems. I think itll be a bigger inconvenience for some students, she said, because if a lot of students just parked wherever, then people who actually need the spots or are registered for the spots cant park there. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014Maria Valencia/AlligatorClean up MICHAEL RANKINAlligator Contributing WriterThe City of Gainesville is developing new bright green bike boulevards this semester, aiming areas, enhance their mobility and ensure their safety. The citys sole bike boulevard currently runs down West 12th Street, stretching from the intersection of Northwest 13th Street and Northwest 19th Lane near Gainesville High School, down to the intersection of Southwest 11th Street and Depot Avenue. The new boulevards will include a connection between the Waldo Road trail and routes along Northwest Third Avenue, from Northwest 21st Street to Northeast Seventh Street. Regional Transit System spokesman Chip Skinner said the initiative advances the goals and objectives outlined in the City of Gainesvilles comprehensive plan by adding infrastructure that supports a balanced transportation system for both bicyclists and motorists. The system adds alternative routes to busy corridors around the city, such as University Avenue, where it is not feasible to add bike lanes, he said. The City Commission allocated $200,000 to the bike boulevard system, which covers the cost of installing bike boxes and a bike-detection mechanism, which will notify trafand allow them to pass through an intersection more quickly. The bike detection works the same way as a vehicle detection, Skinner said. John Clifford, a 21-year-old UF wildlife ecology and conservation junior and Jimmy Johns bike deliverer, said the bike boxes are a good idea because they give cyclists the right of way when approaching an intersection. When I use the 12th Street corridor, I usually will show other cyclists how to use the bike box, Clifpeople know how to use them. Clifford said he was hit by a car in July, landing him in the hospital. Drivers dont pay the best attention, he said. Cycling advocate Joseph Floyd founded the group Get Active GNV to raise awareness about local bike safety. Gainesville is far more bikerfriendly than many other cities in Florida, mostly due to there being a high volume of cyclists, said Floyd, who also serves as the zero Sustainability. He said the usefulness of the boulevard system is best determined by measuring how well the bike boulevards work together rather than as different individual routes. Its not about one lane here or one lane there; its about how the system works as a grid, Floyd said. If the initiative decreases accidents and increases convenience for cyclists using the system, its a good use of money.Gainesville to get more green bike boulevards this semesterCity Commission allocated $200,000 TOWING, from page 1Ultimate expects to resume roam towing sometime next week Guests took questions from students afterWhile she said Hamas was a biproduct of occupation and the worst thing to happen, the Palestinians have been detained since before Hamas came into power. Theres not an occupation, Oren said. Hamas chose not to be peaceful. Jebreal interrupted Oren, explaining her views on Palestinians lack of human rights in the so-called democratic Jewish state. Speaking passionately with anecdotes and historical facts, she said they should have full rights. Theyre blocked in because otherwise, theyll kill us, Oren said. I disagree with everything you said. Oren, a self-proclaimed Zionist, listed the issues on the Israeli side, and he also gave facts proving Israel is democratic and has been coexisting with Palestinians. After an hour and a half, Jacobs asked two of his questions and two out of the 16 submitted by students. Naor Amir, a UF mechanical engineering senior, said he thought Jebreal had emotional appeal, and Oren had good counter arguments. I think the moderator could have done a better job of dividing the time between them, Amir, 21, said. the Students for Justice in Palestine still holding up their posters. This topic is dubbed controversial and not talked about on campus, Shraiteh said. There is a skewed verian voices are not really heard. Other students walked away from the event with more positive feelings. I thought it was a good event, Amir said. I would love to see similar events in the future.

An August report by The Washington Post took an indepth look at the system of standardized testing in Florto a schedule released by Miami-Dade County Public Schools, standardized tests for students in third through 12th grade during the 2014-2015 school year. That number doesnt even include the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams taken by thousands of Florida high school students every year. The abundance of standardized tests in Florida schools is proponent of comprehensive testing, and his A+ Plan helped tie school funding to student performance on a variety of tests. Since leaving the governors mansion, Bush has continued his advocacy for standardized testing. His foundation has found itself in ethical and legal trouble for using money donated by private education companies, such as Pearson and Amplify, to Although former Gov. Charlie Crist and Gov.

KELSIE OZANNE Alligator Contributing Writer The local National Veterans Affairs Brain Rehabilitation Research Center of Excellence hosted an open house Tuesday in celebration of a $4.5 million award. The event featured research projects on brain rehabilitation by 28 VA-funded investigators and 16 munity Living Center building on the campus of the Veteran Affairs medical center. The award will be dispersed over tation research consortium, which includes the Malcom Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center, UF, UF Health Shands, UF Health Shands Rehab Hospital and the Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital in Jacksonville. Thomas Wisnieski, the director of the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, congratulated researchers at the event for their dedication to enhancing the lives of veterans and all those affected by traumatic brain injuries. More than 150 people attended the event, including health science specialist Susan Leon, said Janis Daly, director of the Brain Rehabilitation Center. Leon researches treatment options for patients who have lost the ability to express their emotions due to brain injury. I wouldnt be able to do what I do if I didnt have the center, Leon said. At the event, Daly explained how out of the 15 centers of excellence around the country, the Gainesville center is the only one focused on brain rehabilitation. Before research was completed on brain rehabilitation, Dr. Carolyn Hanson, the clinical research coordinator for the center, said many believed that when the brain was in a traumatizing event, it would never recover to its original capacity. Weve debunked that pretty thoroughly, Hanson said. crucial for such conditions as posttraumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury that many veterans are experiencing. Its often your parents or your uncles or your aunts that are possibly receiving this treatment, Leon said. UF students are also contributing to the brain rehabilitation centers research. Five or six students from UF work with the brain rehabilitation center every year, Hanson said. Dulce Castro, a 27-year-old UF electrical and computer engineering graduate student will be working at the center this year. Castro said she hopes her work, like the work of the researchers at the event, will someday make a difference in peoples lives. Its nice to see all the research work come together and have researchers collaborate, Castro said. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014Kan Li / Alligator StaffThomas Wisnieski, director of North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, and Dr. Janis Daly, director of the Brain Rehabilitation Research Center, speak at the open house Tuesday afternoon. NATIONAL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, found no evidence that chemicals or brine water from the gas drilling process moved upward to contaminate drinking water at a site in western Pennsylvania. The Department of Energy report, recompany allowed independent monitoring of a drilling site during the fracking process and for 18 months afterward. After those months of monitoring, researchers found stayed about 5,000 feet below drinking water supplies. toring and other tests to look for problems, and they created the most detailed public report to date about how fracking affects adjacent rock structures. The fracking process uses millions of gallons of high-pressure water mixed with sand and chemicals to break apart rocks rich in oil and gas. That has led to a national boom in production, but also to concerns about possible groundwater contamination. Maya K. van Rossum, of the Delaware Riverkeeper group, mentioned harms related to shale gas development, including methane gas leaks, wasteful use of fresh water and air pollution. She also said the Energy Departkeeper has been making: Faulty well construction is the root cause of most problems, not chemicals migrating up to rocks. But the Energy Department report is far from the last word on the subject. The department monitored six wells at one site, but oil or gas drilling at other locations around the nation could show different results because of variations in geology or drilling practices. Environmentalists and regulators have also documented cases in which surface spills of chemicals or wastewater damaged drinking water supplies.LOCAL MELISSA MIHM Alligator Staff Writermmihm@alligator.orgA 24-year-old UF student drowned at the Stoneridge Apartments complex pool early Saturday morning, according to Gainesville Police. are still trying to contact his family overseas in India.

Smathers Library and the Levin College of Law will host events to celebrate Constitution Day today. Both events are open and free to the public. UFs Levin College of Law will have a panel discussion at the Martin H. Levin Advocacy Center starting at noon, with prominent speakers talking about National Security and Privacy After Snowden. Smathers Library will have tables set up on the Library West Colonnade from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees can write on a board what they think should be changed or added to the U.S. Constitution. Its a simple exercise to bring awareness to the constitution, said Barbara Hood, director of communications at Smathers Library. A lot of people dont know whats in the constitution. Constitution Day is a way to commemorate the signing of the constitution, Hood said. Pocket constitutions and cake will also be given out at the Smathers event. UFs Levin College of Law will have speakers such as Senior District Judge Roger Vinson of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida and Sandra Chance, a UF journalism professor and executive director of the Brechner Center for Freedom of Information. Jon Mills, director for UF Laws Center for Governmental Responsibility, said the panel discussion will allow the audience to ask the speakers questions. Mills will also take part in the conversation. The law panel will explore issues such as wiretapping citizens and the NSA collecting data on phone calls, Mills said. The constitution protects every citizen from search and seizure, and the government cant wiretap without a warrant, he said. We hope interested grad students and undergraduate students come to see it. Susan Huang

D.J. HUMPHRIES IS STILL OUT WITH AN ANKLE INJURY. JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Floridas offensive line was inconsistent in its 36-30 triple-overtime win against Kentucky on Saturday. After losing starting left tackle D.J. Humphries (ankle) one week early against the Wildcats and allowed seven quarterback hurries, mage and two sacks. Miscommunications forced quarterback Jeff Driskel to be quick on his reads at times, forcing the redshirt junior to get rid of the ball earlier than he anticipated. But despite the rough start and the issues that ensued, offensive coordinator Kurt Roper was impressed with how the offensive Southeastern Conference contest progressed. With what Kentucky was doing to us and for us to go in and rush for 230 yards was really a credit to them, Roper said. I mean, they were a physical group the other night and theyve been sore the last couple days because it was one of those games, but they did a really good job. And with the Gators (2-0, 1-0 SEC) traveling to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to face the No. 3 Crimson Tide this weekend, Florida will face its second tough test in the trenches in as many weeks. Alabama (3-0) boasts a deep defensive front, rotating players often to keep them fresh. Sophomore defensive lineman Jonathan Allen leads the Crimson Tide with four tackles for loss, and Alabama has 10 other players who are credited with at least sharing a tackle behind the line of scrimmage. Linebackers Xzavier Dickson and Ryan Anderson each have two sacks this season. Theyre deep across the board, offensive lineman Chaz Green said. They have good talent and theyre also coached well, they bring a lot of different fronts. Its something tice. Green, who shifted from right tackle to left tackle on Saturday due to Humphries injury, admitted to having struggled with his technique early against the Wildcats, but felt better as the game proceeded. cutting off the back side, Green said. We knew that was going to be an issue last week with the scheme that they ran with those ends. Center Max Garcia, the unspoken leader of the offensive line, respected how the linemen played against Kentucky, especially Floridas guards. They did a good job, just listening to my call, the redshirt senior said. They were on the same page with me. They pulled like every other play, they were doing a lot of running that people dont really realize you know the type of effect that has on conditioning and them running sideline to sideline it takes a toll on your body.

The No. 17 Gators completand ended the tournament at 25-over-par, which was 43 shots behind the winner of the event, Southeastern Conference foe, No. 7 Arkansas. Arkansas shot 18-under-par as a team, and won by seven strokes over No. 2 UCLA. Sophomore Kelly Grassel was the most consistent player for UF over the three days, tournament as a Gator in a tie for 38th place. Junior Ursa Orehek had her best round of the week as she completed the third round at even-par. Orehek moved up 25 spots on the for 59th place. She ended the three-day event at 10-overpar. Freshman Taylor Tomlinher collegiate career on the third day. She completed her round at even-par as well. The Gainesville native shot days before her even-par 72 on the last day of the event. Even though the Gators struggled as a team overall in the three day tournament, coach Emily Glaser said the performances of Orehek and will help the team as they move forward. Overall, it wasnt a great event for us, but despite that, we will take a lot of positives from our experience, Glaser said in a release. Im happy that Taytoday. Everyone contributed this week and everyone had their own individual successes even though the scores werent great. A day after shooting a 1-under 71, sophomore Karolina Vlckova struggled on the shooting 8-over-par. Vlckova dropped 34 spots on the leaderboard from a tie in 19th place to a tie for 53rd.
