STATE ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterThe Board of Governors delayed its Bright Futures discussion until further notice at a meeting Thursday. The board had planned to talk about the scholarships aid for low-income families. At the meeting, the Board of Governors approved its 2015-2016 legislative budget request and updated its 2025 strategic plan goals. The approved legislative budget request includes $100 million in new performance funds that the State University System would match with $200 million in existing funds. The money will go toward improving areas that are important to students and taxpayers. Its important that we present an LBR (legislative budget request) that represents our greatest needs and provides a return investment for the state and our students, said Tim Jones, Board of Governors vice chancelThe strategic plan, a nationally recognized accountability system, was also under review. Beginning this year, it will be reindicators credible. The Board also approved a legislative budget request to invest in the development of e-textbooks. It requested a $227,000 investment in Orange Grove Text Plus, an openaccess textbook initiative and arm of the University Press of Florida. Its (LBR) dedicated to reducing the high costs of textbooks students bear these days, UF Provost Joe Glover said. This process of collaboration certainly reduces costs across the system.Board of Governors puts off Bright Futures talks CHABELI HERRERAAlligator Staff WriterGainesville residents will likely see highcials passed two measures Thursday night. In a 6-1 vote, City Commission passed a water-rate increase for apartment complexes. apartment buildings unit, instead of dividing utility charges differently each month based on each buildings water gauge. The change applies to all multi-family plexes. gallons used will now apply to individual apartments. But some feel the measure directly targets students, who make up about half of Gainesvilles population. If an increase is absolutely necessary, then it should come at the cost of all Gainesville residents, not just those that live in apartments, said UF Student Government Senator and graduate student Chris Weaver. The increase puts local rates on par with higher rates across the state, said Gainesville Regional Utilities general manager Kathy Viehe, making up for years of underpayments from multi-family homes. Though the rate change will mean a 50cent increase for single-family homes for every 7,000 gallons of water used, apartments gallons used. City Commission also passed a measure ending GRUs use of mountaintop coal, the culmination of Gainesville Loves Mountains three-and-a-half year battle to stop the practice The controversial technique involves literally blasting off the tops of mountains to City Commission: water-rate increases, stops mountain top coal WE LIKE KID CUDI BUT NOT LORDE. AILEEN MACKAlligator Contributing WriterMusic is keeping UF students up day and night, according to a new Spotify study. In the top 40 musical universities study released Tuesday, Spotify found that UF students are listening to Kid Cudi more than students at other schools. But the data also showed UF students are not on Lordes team. Spotify based their list on data from students using the Spotify Premium student deal and then ranked the universities by who listened to the most music on the site. Florida State University and University of Central Florida also made the list. According to the study, UF has a taste for steel drums and tropical music but not for Christian music. The accessibility students have to different genres makes their listening habits different, said Breana Auberry, president and co-founder of Swamp Records. in Gainesvilles music community, Auberry, a 21-year-old UF advertising seniors, said.

It might result in $1.65 million expenseaccess seams of coal underneath. The result is catastrophic for nearby streams and valleys where the resulting waste is dumped. In his opening remarks, Appalachian Voices director of programs Matthew Wasson said the coal mining is leveling mountains across the Appalachian area, leaving streams contaminated with waste and contributing to higher cancer rates. capacity wearing white and blue I heart mountains buttons. This is the kind of problem that is happening right in peoples backyards, Wasson said. GRU will now commit to spending up to 5 percent more to buy coal from sources that deep mine their coal instead, could result in fuel expenses anywhere up to $1.65 million. If the costs go over 5 percent, City Commission can vote to temporarily suspend the policy. City Commissioner Lauren Poe said the increase will most likely be around 2.5 percent, which equates to 48 cents more per month for customers. That is a small price to pay, Poe said. students Spotify selections included Kanye West, Drake, Coldplay and Calvin Harris. UF students and most college students stream Spotify at about 4 p.m., the study also revealed. the entire UF student body. The data for the study was gathered from students who pay $5 to avoid ads on their Spotify accounts. From a socio-economic standpoint, the data is skewed to those who can pay for that luxury, said Colin Harte, UF lecturer and Ph.D. fellow in ethnomusicology. Compared with the other schools, UF students listen to more dance, hip-hop and R&B music than other schools but not as much rock. Rock is becoming less innoon todays generation of music listeners, Auberry said. Your music taste depends on where youre from, said Ximena Jaramillo, an 18-yearold UF digital arts and sciences freshman. Along with University of Pennsylvania and University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, UF ranked as a top Latin music school. We have a huge Hispanic-Latino community in Gainesville, wrote Heather Halak, 20-year-old English and linguistics senior and Spotify UF, in an email.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7The Accent Speakers Bureau hosted A Conversation with Former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren and Journalist Rula Jebreal Tuesday. It was its second attempt at addressing the Israeli-Palestinian issue, after having to cancel a similarly themed event last Spring. At that event, Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was to be interviewed by journalist Rula Jebreal. Olmert canceled his appearance at UF and was subsequently convicted of receiving bribes. Delayed but undeterred, Accent brought us the sequel to the Olmert event not an interview, but a conversation between Jebreal and Oren. Representatives from the event also invited Students for Justice in Palestine to participate. Although its offer may have been well-intentioned, Accents behavior indicates a pretty deep misunderstanding of Palestinian issues on the parts of Accent and the Jewish Student Union. The Oren-Jebreal conversation misrepresents the groups with equal grievances on either side. It mimics past attempts that Americans have made to coerce Palestinians and Israelis to have discussions and meetings, predicated on the assumption that the two just need to work things out. This approach not only ignores the underlying issue Israels occupation in the region but also trivializes the grievances of the Palestinian people, who have been bombed, displaced, constrained, jailed and occupied. Furthermore, it creates a false image of inclusiveness and diversity. By inviting a Palestinian to a public forum, Accent clear, however, that no such balance exists. Jebreals role at Accent is similar to Juan Williams position at Fox News she may belong to a minority group, but shes been placed in an environment in which she serves the majoritys purpose. We do not wish to be involved in such a thinly veiled display of favoritism for a modern-day colonialist government. SJP says no, thank you to being Accents token Palestinian group. Doing so would further subjugate the Palestinian people, which Accent has done enough of already. Amanda Nelson is the secretary of the UF branch of Students for Justice in Palestine.Oren-Jebreal Discussion: Accents done enough to offend PalestiniansGuest Column Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are just a few of approximately 100 celebrities whose nude photographs were posted anonymously to the website 4chan a couple of weeks ago. Afterward, many questioned the security of their devices and wondered who should be held accountable. The average citizen lacks the requisite level of notoriety to worry about naked photos of themselves spreading like wildisnt to say that such an event happening to a celebrity doesnt cause everyone to take a collective gasp at the mere thought of such embarrassment. The heart of the issue is bigger than racy pictures. These photos have functioned to heighten public awareness regarding the security, or lack Its not unreasonable to assume that many Americans deleted some questionable content from their own phones in response to the leaked photos. The New Yorker reported that computer science professor Matthew Green at Johns Hopkins University provided two possibilities for the way these images found their way gests that a hacker or hackers discovered a way into Apples iCloud, an application that allows users to store information on remote servers via the Internet. The second option involves the Find My iPhone app, which tained in the iCloud. The problem, until recently, was that Find My iPhone wouldnt lock after failed login attempts. For a hacker, this means that an algorithm could be implemented to run a series of possible password combinations until the correct one is discovered. With no lockout for failed passwords, a million attempts can be made in a relatively short amount of time without interruption. It looks as though the deluge of celebrity photos were stolen from those using the iPhone. Representing 25 percent of the smartphone population, iPhone users have a reason to be concerned about the security of their devices. The iPhone is certainly more resilient to hacker attacks in the wake of recent events, as almost immediately after the photos in question began appearing on the web, Apple created a patch for Find My iPhone to prevent unauthorized access to iCloud. Although Apple denies an iCloud breach, the speed of the companys technical response suggests culpability. The stolen photos ignited a blame game across the Internet as to who should be held accountable. On a certain level, its natural for people to want to declare a responsible party; the someone-has-to-pay mentality assuages public fear that something like this could happen to them if they know where to place fault. Some may say Apple is to blame for failing to adequately protect its users. Some will argue its the fault of corrupt hackers for publishing the images, and others will suggest that we should look to the celebrities themselves. Of the three options, it seems sensible to suggest that each one shares a portion of the responsibility for the surfacing of the pictures. The responses of the celebrities affected were as varied as the images themselves. Some chose to laugh the whole thing off, which was probably the right way to go. As for those who were incensed by the theft of their photos, its easy to feel inclined to suggest that they are the most deserving of censure after all, its their naked bodies they allowed to be phoIts important to remember that no hardware or software is impenetrable. For every programmer employed by Apple or any company for that matter to devise security features, theres an equally knowledgeable hacker working to circumvent them. Everyone has the right to snap as many nude photos as theyd like, but when taking photographs of this nature, one has to acknowledge the possibility that someone, or everyone, will see the images. If the photos make it to the Internet, thats too bad for you. Its not appropriate to be upset if and when this happens since the subject of the photo implicitly accepted any and all consequences the moment the picture was taken. When feeling compelled to take photos in the buff, always remember take it from the neck down. Jonathan Bolan writes for The Daily Cougar. A version of this column appeared on UWire.Celebrity nude photo scandal questions security, modestyUWireHere in Gainesville, there are many places a citizen can go to get treatment for any illness. Most Americans are fortunate enough to have access to affordable health care, and new reforms of the health care system have allowed even those with pre-existing conditions access to medical care. The American health care system is not the worlds best, but the U.S. does lead the world in developing the research and technology needed to battle illnesses of all kinds. Unfortunately, the health care situation in West Africa is much worse. Ebola broke out in a border region in March of this year, and the international response to combatting the disease has been slow. The World Health Organization only declared the outbreak a world health emergency in August, the month in which the most single-month Ebola deaths in history were recorded. Many African countries dont have the necessary infrastructure to combat preventable diseases. Health care workers in these countries are discouraged by the lack of infrastructure, and many of them have quit their jobs out of concern for their own health and safety. The dangers of practicing health care in Africa have led to a critical shortage of trained medical personnel. According to data from the WHO, Liberia has 1.4 doctors and 27.4 nurses per 100,000 people. Guinea has 10 doctors and 51.1 nurses per 100,000 people. Sierra Leone has 2.2 doctors and 16.6 nurses per 100,000 people. These numbers are barely enough to treat an outbreak of the common cold among a large population, let alone a devastating disease like Ebola. The lack of medical expertise in Africa leads to distrust and fear of preventive health care. Other social issues, such as low literacy rates and political instability, make stopping or slowing down In response to the African Ebola outbreak, the Obama administration has committed $175 million to combatting the disease. These funds will build 17 Ebola treatment units, including 1,700 hospital beds. The money will also be used to hire and train additional medical personnel to accommodate the growing number of patients. The Obama administration also asked Congress for an additional $88 million, which will add to the relief effort by investing in vaccine development. President Barack Obama called the outbreak a national security threat. Labeling the Ebola outbreak as a threat to our interests indicates his belief that Africas problems are our problems, too. Despite these strong words from the president, only fears of a potential American outbreak have legitimized the relief effort and tion to this horrible crisis. Fortunately, these unfounded fears may have the consequence of encouraging members of Congress to act on this issue with a sense of urgency. Tragically, the current Ebola efforts may simply be too little, too late. The disease has already claimed more than 1,800 lives this year a number projected to inture and no vaccine for the disease has yet been developed. Beth Bell, a director at the Center for Disease Control, said that without effective interventions, the number of Ebola cases could skyrocket into the hundreds of thousands. Additionally, the presidents military and national security language may be effective in mobilizing action, but it ignores the social aspect of this crisis. Because literacy is so low in parts of West Africa, information travels at a slow, unreliable pace. Relief efforts must ensure that the trust of locals while also training more African-born health care providers. Other industrialized and developed nations must play a role in these efforts as well. The world looks to the U.S. for leadership, and rightly so. However, outbreaks require quick, large-scale responses from all corners of the globe. The response to the Ebola outbreak demonstrates how weak global health infrastructure actually is. Hopefully, the U.S. and the global community will apply the lessons from the ongoing crisis to future health issues. If the world drags its feet, public health problems will only get worse.

It lasts until Sept. 28.Team CaptainsCoach Will Muschamp announced via Twitter on Thursday that quarterback Jeff Driskel, center Max Garcia, cornerback Vernon Hargreaves and punter Kyle Christy will be team captains against Alabama on Saturday.Taylor Tubbs and the UF cross country team are set to host their only race this year. Read the story at With the Gators traveling to the great state of Alabama to take on the Crimson Tide this Saturday, the alligatorSports road crew will be makFlorida over the next three weeks. Gone are the days of strolling to fore kickoff. And we couldnt be more excited for this to happen. A football game between one of the perennial frontrunners for a national title and a team thats still determining where its production will peak is in order. Lets break down our journey to our destination to the immediate northwest by the numbers. Two: The number of nights well be staying in a Motel 6 with a twostar rating more than 40 minutes away from Bryant-Denny Stadium. Five:ting into one car to make the trip possible. Seven: The estimated number of hours the alligatorSports road crew will travel to make it to Tuscaloosa for the game if it goes non-stop. 25: The minimum amount of times Morgan Moriarty will bring up the name Todd Gurley before we even leave the state of Florida. Lets just stop talking about this trip while were somewhat still ahead. Hopefully we have a good playlist to get us through that treacherous journey to Tuscaloosa. Debating the game of the week a nightcap between No. 4 Oklahoma and West Virginia are alligatorSports editor Jordan McPherson and staff writer Morgan Moriarty.Picks Column: Alabama SITE: Bryant-Denny Stadium (cap. 101,821) KICKOFF: 3:30 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: CBS / 850 AM SEE PICKS, P AGE 15 JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Florida learned a lot about itself against Kentucky. The Gators (2-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) found out that they can still contain the rush, allowing the Wildcats to gain just 81 yards on the ground. Outside of Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles 24-yard scamper on his dered just one run that was longer than 10 yards. Florida discovered that Kyle Christy can still punt the ball. The senior booted six punts that went an average distance of 48.7 yards against Kentucky, looking like he did back in 2012 when he was a Half of his punts pinned the Wildcats inside their 10-yard line. But the Gators also saw that they still have room to improve. And now that they are heading to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to take on the No. 3 Crimson Tide (3-0) for their Theres some tough parts, now, Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. said. Youre not used to different environments. Somestate or on a plane, just being in different states. Just the environment. On defense, Florida has to make strides with its young secondary, a group that was burned on multiple occasions against Kentucky. We need to improve, whether its playing in the slot, safety or corner, coach Will Muschamp said. Its really across the board. On offense, Florida needs to see development on third down. For the season, the Gators are 11th in the SEC with a 40.5-percent conversion rate. For offensive coordinator Kurt second down will be Floridas key to success. Long down and distances with these guys are going to bring a lot of issues on third down, want to stay on schedule, as everybody likes to say. But at the same time, youve got to try to be aggressive and make plays down makes third down more of a challenge if you dont stay in good situations that way. Traveling to a hostile environment like Bryant-Denny Stadium is no light task, especially for the young group that Florida is bringing. But regardless of the venue, Florida just wants to play. Its going to be pretty cool going into Alabamas stadium, quarterback Jeff Driskel said. We havent been on the road yet and thats a good way to start. I bet some of the guys will be a little of the day its playing football and thats what were going to have to do.Kan Li / Alligator S taffUF cornerback Vernon Hargreaves (1) talks to Brian Poole (24) during Floridas 36-30 tripleSOCCER ALEX MAMINAKISAlligator Writer@alexmaminakis a close, Florida sits at 5-2 on the year and is ranked No. 7 in the national polls. It has a win over then-No. 2 Florida State and an overtime loss to No. 4 Stanford notched under its belt, not to mention a streak of six straight away games that comes to an end tonight in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Gators open their Southeastern Conference schedule when they face the Crimson Tide (4-2-1) at 8 p.m. at the Alabama Soccer Stadium. This will be the second straight year that Florida and Alabama will be opening conference play against each other. Coach Becky Burleigh said that conference play is far more different than facing nonconference opponents because teams like Alabama are so familiar with how Florida plays. There are no secrets. Its just a whole different animal when it comes to SEC, Burleigh said. The rivalries and the familiarity make it a lot more personal. When the Gators and the Crimson Tide met last season, Floridas freshmen led the way to a 3-0 victory in Gainesville. But teams change every season, and Alabama is looking to return the favor this year in Tuscaloosa. Florida will be the second ranked opponent Alabama plays this season. The Tide fell 3-0 to then-No. 3 Virginia on Sept. 5. I really respect Alabamas attack, I think theyve got some really good personality players, Burleigh said. Well have our work cut out for us.

GRAHAM HACKAlligator Writer@graham_hack24After ending last season on a bittersweet note, the Florida mens tennis team is motivated to come back even stronger for this years campaign. Floridas 2014 season came to a heartbreaking end at the hands of heavy favorite Ohio State, losing 4-3 in a thrilling Round of 16 matchup in the NCAA Tournament. UF coach Bryan Shelton, entering his third season at Florida, said he thinks the way the season for the team. I think that was just some validation for us that hey, weve gotten better, Shelton said, but at the same time, it was a little bit of a sting because we were so close and we didnt get the job done. Its just like maybe if we hit a few more serves, or if we worked on the return a little bit more, or if we had done one more wind sprint, whats the difference to get that one extra point that we needed, and so you use that as fuel to come back and continue to work hard so that the next time youre in that situation, you execute. As a team captain and one of the returning players who witnessed the loss to Ohio State, junior Gordon Watson echoed Sheltons sentiments, saying although the loss hurt, good could come from it. Its a great motivator for this year, to put in the extra work everyday to get to that next level this year, he said. Richard Brej, Floridas lone senior, said he believes the way the team played in that match last season helped unify the players, bringing them together like a family. Speaking of family, Brej, Watson and the rest of the Florida players also said they are looking forward to playing in front of their Gator family this weekend in the SEC Fall Classic, which begins today and is being hosted by UF. The fans are awesome, they always support us, Watson said, and the freshmen, its a good introduction for the spring Added Shelton: Its pretty special. I always say its nice to be able to sleep in your own bed. Obviously, were comfortable on our courts, and get to play in front of family and friends and fans, thats always fun for our guys and for us as coaches as well. 14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2014 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffUF mens tennis coach Bryan Shelton walks on the Ring Tennis Complex courts prior to Floridas 5-2 win LUIS TORRESAlligator Writer@LFTorresIIIAfter not performing up to the standards of a nationally successful program, the Florida mens golf team looks to bounce back after a discourit heads to Zionsville, Ind., for the two-day Wolf Run Intercollegiate. Coach J.C. Deacon made it a point to remind the players of how poorly they played in the opening tournament. I dont think I let them move on, I reminded them few times, Deacon said. It has bothered them and Ive let them know how much it bothered me, our result, and Im really planning on seeing a different team this weekend. The team lineup has undergone some changes for Zionsville. Freshman Ryan Celrounds for the tournament, will be making his collegiate debut on Saturday. And Eric Banks, who was the 2014 recipient of the David Toms Award, will be making his senior year debut. Not being able to help the team in the Banks this weekend. It hurt a lot, just because I knew that I could contribute to the team, Banks said. I wouldve obviously liked to play, I heard it was a great course, but Im kind of looking forward to this one and getting the ball rolling. Deacon said the Wolf Run Golf Club is a long and hard golf course that presents a test for the team. Its a big boy golf course, said sophomore Ryan Orr, ment at 12-over par. Its very long, so off the tee is going to be crucial because it looks like the rough is pretty long and if you start hitting it in the rough on longer holes off the tee, you might not even be able to hit the green. One of the other challenges which might present itself over the weekend in Zionsville is the potential for cooler weather. With nine out of the 10 players on the team from the state of Florida, Banks, who is from Truro, Canada, has been giving advice to the players on how to deal with the weather conditions. Even with the disappointCollegiate Classic almost two weeks ago, Orr said the team has its eyes on the prize. Our expectation is to try to win this golf tournament, he said. I dont know whos playing in it, but I dont think it really matters. I think were all capable and were all playing well, so I think we can win this thing.Mens golf team starts second fall tournament Saturday UF Golf MENS TENNISUF using NCAA loss as motivation


FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15 The Sooners (-7.5) will take the win sooner rather than later because ... Oklahomas offense has not had a hiccup thus far this year. The Sooners are averaging 44.7 points per game, good for 16th in three opponents to just 11. Expect Oklahomas trio of running backs Keith Ford, Samaje Perine and against WVU, which is giving up an average of 162.5 yards on the ground this season. -Jordan McPherson The Mountaineers (+7.5) will cause... Clint Trickett won me over when he nickel and dimed Alabamas secondary. This game being in Morgantown is huge, too. I think this goal. -Morgan Moriarty Now onto the Picks! cord is alligatorSports staff writer Jonathan bailing out Czupryn, who decided to skip the alligatorSports podcast this week in order to see a girl. Really, man? You picked a girl over sports? Was she at least better looking than most of us like Kurt Ropers wife? Dropping down one spot to second place with a 13-10 record is the Orlando Sentinels Edgar Free Falling Thompson, who had an appalling 1-7 record in last weeks round of picks. I repeat, ONE and SEVEN. Its bad week. Everyone else sucked at least a little bit last week, too. Unfortunately, you just sucked the most. In third place with a 12-11 record is alligatorSports staff writer Morgan drag racing Moriarty, ticket on the way to this years Southeastern Conference Media Days while heading to Alabama in July. Good job, Morgan. Do you know youre just adding on to the stereotype that women cant drive? Yes, I know youre eager to see the Crimson Tide and your coach-crush in Nick Saban. But lets hope lightning doesnt strike twice when you make your return to the Heart of Dixie. Tied for fourth with an 11-12 clip is Editor Richard The NFL sucks ass Johnson, who has expressed his disdain for the National Football League on more occasions than one over the past two weeks. We wish we could understand your logic, bud. Football is football. It doesnt matter if its professional, college or peewee. The game is the same. Embrace the NFL, Richard. Embrace it. Also in fourth and just under .500 is Gator Countrys Nick mid-life crisis de la Torre, who is starting to show his age this week with an (un)impressive salt-and-pepper hairdo. Theres two simple solutions here, Nick: Just for Men or a vintage Mustang. Hopefully you realize which is the right choice to go with. Rounding out the alligatorSports group in sixth place with a 10-13 clip is editor Jordan I want to build a snowman McPherson, who mentioned on the alligatorSports podcast on Tuesday how much he enjoyed the childrens movie Frozen. OK, Jordan. You can make up all the excuses you want about watching it with your little sister. But you need to come to your senses and just admit it you like the movie. Its not a secret anymore. Tied with Jordan in sixth place and four games out of the top spot is Inside the Gators Landon against the grain Watnick, who was the only person to pick North Carolina over East Carolina for this weekends matchups. I dont know, man. Maybe watching football on three different TVs in your Estates apartment room gave you some insight that we didnt know about. Or maybe watching those three TVs simultaneously is making you delusional. I think its safe to say that were going with the latter. And once again in dead-asslast with a piss-poor record of 9-14 is Thomas Who dat? Goldkamp, who wears some sort of New Orleans Saints apparel to a majority of the Florida football media availabilities. Come on, man!
