THE ACTOR-TURNED-ACTIVIST GOT SERIOUS ABOUT SOCIAL ISSUES. ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterGeorge Takei stepped onto the University Auditorium stage Tuesday evening to thunderous applause. This is a really spectacular place it deserves an oh my, he said. The activist and Star Trek actor was brought by the Accent Speakers Bureau, Pride Student Union and Asian American Student Union to share his message on democracy and the connection between minorities at 8 p.m. Throughout the year, we celebrate the diversity in America, Takei said. Because central to the vitality of this nation is the fact that we are diverse, and we celebrate the various histories, cultures, experiences that make up this great country. And as Americans, we are tions. And the Trekkies recognize that. Takei took the audience back to 1941: the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He was 4 years old, and it was the beginning of his politically active career as a Japanese-American. His family was taken from their home and forced to live in a horse stall before being transferred to an Arkansas internment camp. His father was labeled an enemy non-alien, even though he entoo young to understand and feel the pain. He then became active in campaigns such as the civil rights movement, where he marched alongside Martin Luther King Jr. But Takei didnt just feel different because of his face, he said. At 10 years old, he knew he was different when he had feelings for boys rather than girls. As a budding actor, he said he stayed closeted and felt alone. He saw innocent gay men and lesbians get incarcerated due to ignorance, connecting it to his childhood as a Japanese-American. He has been an LGBT activist since 2005, when the bill for equal rights was banned in California.

Downtown Hawthorne is roughly 1 square mile and houses about 14,000 residents, said Ellen Vause, Hawthornes city manager. Hawthorne enjoys its small town charm, but Vause said the city is eager for tourists to view its nature trails and parks, as well as Main Street. In an attempt to revitalize the downtown area and spur economic development, the city plans to extend its 16-mile bicycle trail. Hawthornes previous city planner asked for a renovation grant three years ago, and the city recently announced the project is now underway. We need the people, Vause said. We need the visitors. The .7-mile project will extend the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail, one of U.S. 301 along Southeast 71st Avenue and Southeast 221st Street to the new trail end at State Road 20. The project will start in summer 2016 and cost about $420,000, said Rebecca White, a spokeswoman for the project.

Beats by Dre headphones, 3-D printing and laptop GPS trackers will be on display 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is hosted by UF Information Technology and Smathers Libraries. Jameson Johnston, IT manager for UFIT, said about 20 on-campus organizations will participate in the event to showcase the services available to students. Students arent aware of all the different types of services available to them, whether its the UF Help Desk or the computer labs across campus, he said. We want to make sure that students are aware of the technology offered. UFIT, along with the UF Bookstore, computer labs and libraries will be in attendance. The idea for the fair came from Chloe Finch, a 21-year-old journalism senior and employee at UFIT, said Bobby Brito, a political science, history and international studies senior and member of the Tech Fair planning committee. The fair will highlight Library Wests one-week iPad rentals, the Collaboration Commons study space in Marston Science Library and UFITs Adobe Creative Suite 6 labs. Brito said he is looking forward to seeing students embrace UFs free technology. Im not a STEM major, so its nice to see what services are offered through the university that I can use, Brito, 21, said.

Tracy Gale, UFIT communications manager, wrote in an email that the goal of the fair is to bring campus IT services together in one place. Johnston said only a small portion of the tech services at UF are not used by students. Were looking to get feedback about our services and see what else we can offer the students, he said. IT HAS PURCHASED 20,000 SO FAR. HUNTER WILLIAMSONAlligator Contributing WriterThrough a project known as Cuba: Million Bible Mission, The Rock of Gainesville Church is trying to raise more than $5 million to send a million Bibles to Cuba. The Bibles cost $5.40 each and, so far, the Rock has raised more than $100,000 and purchased 20,000 Bibles. All of those will be distributed by the United Bible Society, the Council of Churches and the Rock in November. The project began in June in partnership with the United Bible Society. The Rock expects to reach its millionBible goal by 2017 or 2018, said church spokesman Oscar Candelaria. According to Candelaria, the Rock and the United Bible Society have received permission from the Cuban government to distribute the Bibles in the country. The Bibles are in an easyto-understand translation, said Candelaria, who was born in Cuba. According to the Rock, about 77 percent of Cubas population is Christian. The church said Christianity is growing by about 15 percent each year in Cuba. While some people, like Kevin Cauthen, a 17-yearold dual-enrollment Santa Fe College student, think what the Rock is doing is a good thing, some people, like Jonah Stokes, believe differently. Why a million Bibles for Cuba? the 18-year-old musical theater freshman at Santa Fe asked, laughing. Arent Cubans already religious? They arent a godless nation. Sequoia Cervone Buzzella, a UF sustainability freshman, said she thinks that the $5 million could go towards other things. Tabitha Odabe, a senior at The Rock School who also attends the church, said she disagreed. Its a good thing, she said, referring to the mission, adding that there are people who want to know God more and want to read Gods Word, but they dont have access to it. Candelaria said people criticizing the effort to bring Bibles, rather than aiding the poor and in-need, just dont have the right perspective. Most people in the U.S. dont have any idea what its like to live in a country where youre persecuted, he said. Where everything is illegal, where you cant raise your own food without giving most of it to the government. He continued, And so, its easy to criticize this project of bringing in a million Bibles to Cuba, thinking you could use this money for something else. ITS THIRD FOR BEST RENTAL PROPERTIES.

However, as far as the eye can see, theres hardly a sign in sight for either Gov. Rick Scott or democratic candidate Charlie Crist. Perhaps the campaigns are simply eschewing campaign signs for other means of advertisement, or perhaps its a sign that voters are just not that excited for the gubernatorial election. With less than a month until Election Day, campaign fever should be sweeping Florida. But if its happening elsewhere in the state, its certainly not happening in Gainesville. Crist recently visited Gainesville to open a campaign ofIf theres one campaign tactic seen by Floridians everywhere, its the attack ads eating away at our hearts and souls. Charlie Crist loves President Barack Obama, Rick Scott steals money like Dr. Evil, and both candidates are going to eat your children. Perhaps the last ad isnt real, but at this point, would you put it past either candidate to make such a horGenerally, I consider campaign signs to be nothing more than litter that decorates our yards, street corners and abandoned businesses during campaign season, but seeing an entire town nearly bereft of Crist or Scott signs during such a close election is quite surprising. Its true that Gainesville is not exactly the main battleground for control of the governors mansion, but you have to wonder if voters in South Florida and along the Interstate 4 corridor feel the same way. They have a choice between Lord Voldemort or Two-Face, and neither option seems particularly appealing. Rolling Stone picked up on the current state of the gubernatorial campaign last week, publishing an article entitled The Florida Farce, that chronicles why voters should not support either candidate. Nothing in the article was particularly revelatory as they lambasted Scott for his actions while he was CEO of Columbia/HCA and exposed Crist for the While were abundantly aware of the candidates downfalls, now is the time for us to look in the mirror and ask ourselves if this is the best we can do. Democrats are so desperate for the keys to the governors mansion that they welcomed Crist into the party with open arms giving him more than 74 percent of the democratic primary vote. For a man who once wanted to bring back prison chain gangs earning him the nickname Chain Gang Charlie it was a stunning turnaround. Crist was a Republican just four short years ago, but Democrats dont care; they just want to win. Fifth Amendment right not to self-incriminate a whopping 75 for Medicare fraud, but again, Republicans seem to have no qualms giving this man another four years in Tallahassee. Are we truly scraping the barrel so deeply for good politicians in both parties that Democrats and Republicans must settle for political opportunists like Crist or fraudsters who As discussed in the Rolling Stone piece, Florida has immense problems to tackle, from climate change if you havent noticed, Miamis starting to drown to the future of tion is over the age of 65.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 What do women want? Its a question both women and men have been asking themselves for years. To some, the answer might be equal pay in comparison to male counterparts; to others, it might be control over reproductive health. However, this week, Jeopardy!, the popular Qand-A style game show whose run has spanned 50 tion that has been left unanswered for years. This past Monday, Jeopardy! included a catThe name of the category seemed innocent enough until the clues were read aloud. While the vaguely named category could have taken many forms, it caused nothing but controversy. Instead of taking a progressive look at women, the category deferred to female stereotypes, as if the year were still 1950. With answers like Some help around the house; would it kill you to get out the Bissell bagless canister one of these every once in a while? or A pair female viewers were absolutely offended. Sure, some women may want a new vacuum or time to relax and do a crossword, but to say that these are the only things women want is absurd. These answers put forth the idea that women are too simplistic and nave to want anything more than a pair of jeans, and even if they do want things like equality, it doesnt matter because vacuums are for women, and equality is for men. Jeopardy! not only generalized all women but also implied that the only thing women want (or should want) is to have a pleasant, domestic life and, of course, a nice pair of jeans. Never mind that 66 million women in the U.S. have fullor part-time jobs, or the fact that women make up 47 percent of the workforce. Women who viewed this episode of Jeopardy! quickly took to Twitter and started the hashtag #whatwomenwant to show that, despite what people may think, women want more than just vacuums. Women all over the U.S. called out the game show writers and let them know that they werent interested in just having time to relax and do some crossword puzzles. Bringing up issues like putting an end to rape culture, receiving equal pay and recognition of female efforts inside and outside the home, women were not shy about showing how disappointed they were with the category. One Twitter user even created her own parody question to show just how ridiculous the category shoes! What are outdated stereotypes? Even actress Sophia Bush commented on the show, saying Jeopardy, for a smart show you just got srsly stupid. As of Sunday, Jeopardy! has yet to respond to any of these comments. dy! to believe, women want more than time to do pilates or drink Sleepytime tea.

Madeline Gallegos writes for the Rocky Mountain Collegian. This story originally appeared on UWire.Ill take stereotypes for 200, AlexUWireElection Day is quickly approaching. On Nov. 4, Florida voters will decide whether to enact Amendment 2: The Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative. The initiatives passage allows for the medical use of marijuana, administration of marijuana by caregivers, recommendations by licensed physicians and the sale of marijuana by medical marijuana treatment centers. As discussed in last weeks column, Amendment 2 is ization of medical marijuana but disapprove of Amendment 2. This opinion is supported by the effects of medical marijuana legalization in California and by analyses of The way to determine the potential effects of Amendment 2 is not to simply hope its passage will turn out well. Instead, lets examine the effects of similar laws in other states. California passed a medical marijuana amendment similar to Amendment 2 in 1996. Greg Warmoth, a reporter for Orlandos Channel 9, investigated its effect on California in November 2013. medical marijuana after telling the doctor, a gynecologist who opened a pot doc shop on the side for extra money, that he had trouble sleeping. conditions outside of debilitating diseases as valid qualimedical marijuana for even small ailments like trouble sleeping. Because Californias and Floridas amendments are so similar, possession in Florida will be an easy process, and the amendments medical purposes may be abused for recreational uses. Furthermore, Amendment 2 gives the Florida Department of Health a large role in creating regulations related to medical marijuana. While it is reasonable to assume FDOH will supply ample regulation to close any loopholes allowing for misuse in the amendments text, the amendment does not commission FDOH to create regulations to its needed extent. Within Amendment 2s full text, FDOH is responsible creating standards of renewal for ID cards, creating health and safety standards for medical marijuana treatment centers and creating a regulation for how much marijuana can be purchased. FDOH is left with no responsibility to create standards for where one can smoke medical marijuana or where one can open a medical marijuana treatment center. Since there are no stipulations for the location of such treatment centers, a pot doc can open up shop next to a school or in a residential community. This, coupled with no regulation for where medical marijuana can be smoked, will create numerous problems. Comparing marijuana to products like alcohol and cigarettes is not a valid comparison because alcohol and cigarettes have regulations on where they can be sold and where one could drink or smoke. Medical marijuana would have neither of those regulations under Amendment 2. The issue of medical marijuana is personal for me. My mom has had chronic, progressive multiple sclerosis for more than 20 years. It is impossible for anyone who has disease causes. The effects of multiple sclerosis can be completely debilitating. I have seen my mother go from walking upright to using a walker to relying on a wheelchair. I have seen her body cripple and wither under the effects of this disease. I know the side effects of the countless medications she has used for treatment: sleepiness, fogginess, and in other cases, digestive and liver problems. itating disease. If Amendment 2 passes, my mom would be eligible to use medical marijuana for relief. As unusual as it is for me to consider my mother lighting up a blunt and taking a puff, if thats going to give her relief, I want her to get it. However, I cant support the legalization of medical marijuana just yet. Amendment 2 is simply too vague. If the amendment passes, legislation following it will be reactive instead of preventative. State lawmakers are going to be kicking themselves to push out new laws that will curve the unintended consequences of Amendment 2, like the ability for people to open a medical marijuana treatment center anywhere and the ability to smoke marijuana anywhere. Medical marijuana should be legal, and voters should be able to compassionately allow the choice for relief through medical marijuana. However, that choice should not come until a more revised and more restrictive form of Amendment 2 is proposed. Lindsay Alexander is a UF journalism sophomore. Her columns appear on Wednesdays.Fla.

DAMARIS LOPEZAlligator Contributing WriterThe Florida Gym will celebrate its 65th anniversary on Oct. 21 with a luncheon for staff, faculty and students. I was looking through some old papers and realized that this year would be the 65th anniversary, said Christine Coombes, director of communications for the College of Health and Human Performance, so I talked to the dean, and he thought it would be a good idea to celebrate. In addition to the luncheon, the college will host a birthday party-themed tailgate before the Florida versus Missouri game Oct. 18. Florida Gym courtyard bricks will also be on sale for a discounted price of $65 in honor of the 65-year mark. The tailgate will include a display of black and white photographs of the gym from the 50s around the courtyard. The dean of the college, Michael Reid, will also be saying a few words in honor of the anniversary, Coombes said. The Florida Gym was built in 1949 and has held several events since, including performances by Johnny Cash and speeches by John F. Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey and Lyndon B. Johnson, said Carl Van Ness, an archivist at UFs Smathers Library. The Florida Gym houses the College of Health and Human Performance, where 52 faculty members teach more than 1,900 students, according to the college press release. A lot of the things we do in the ODome today, we used to do at the Florida Gym back then, Van Ness said.

Prosecutors in Montana said a man caught leaving a house he had apparently burglarized apologized to the homeowner and offered him some heroin. The Billings Gazette reported that Christopher Dayell Bittner made an initial court appearance Monday on felony burglary and drug possession charges. Authorities said the homeowner and his 7-year-old son came home as Bittner was leaving Saturday. Yellowstone County Attorney Paul Adam said Bittner apologized and offered the drug. He was found nearby, and court records said a search of his backpack turned up 31.5 grams of heroin, drug paraphernalia and items belonging to the homeowner. Public defender Roberta Drew asked that Bittner be released without bail because he wanted to attend his fathers funeral. Bail was set at $7,500, but Bittner was allowed to attend the service.Hunt on for 1.5-ton gargoyles missing from church out what happened to several 1.5-ton gargoyles from a Massachusetts church. scale replica of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris built in the 1980s.

ASHLEIGH HICKSAlligator Contributing Writer UF scholars will come together at Pugh Hall to address Ebola virus concerns today. The panel discussion on the virus will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Ocora Room. The event, The West African Ebola Epidemic: A UF Faculty Discussion & Research Poster Session, will feature a panel of UF faculty who will discuss the disease and its sociocultural effects. UF professor Leonardo A. Villaln, dean of the International Center, will moderate the panel. The point is to sort of tap into our expertise here at UF about an issue that is a very key and current concern, Villaln said. The panel will include Dr. Paul Psychas from the UF Community Health and Family Medicine and Emerging Pathogens Institute and Sharon Abramowitz, assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Center for African Studies. Abramowitz said the crisis is not as detrimental as the media have led people to believe. We have a very robust health system and strong containment measures whenever they are activated, Abramowitz said. It would appear that the public health system is working very actively to prepare itself. The panel aims to address growing health concerns among Americans and within the campus community. The event will be followed by a research poster session presented by undergraduate students in the UF Ebola virus research group. Sponsors for the event include the Health in Africa Working Group at UFs Center for African Studies, the UF International Center Global Health Council and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. I think the best strategy is to throw as many American resources as possible into containing it at the site where its most prevalent right now, and if we address the problem at its source, we wont have to worry about issues of a broader pandemic, Abramowitz said.

The 18th annual TailGATOR event hosted in partnership with the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences will also feature a student in a cockroach costume, baby alligators and take-home space plants. Curtis Smyder, the academic student services coordinator in the horticultural sciences department, said the event will have an interesting mix of attendees. Its a chance for the college to thank alumni, to show them what weve done in the past year and the changes were making and how were making an impact both in Florida and students lives, he said. Cathy Carr, director of alumni and career services of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, said 600 to 700 people are expected to attend the tailgate. Face painting, a barbecue and a silent auction, which raised about $3,300 for scholarships last year, are highlights of the annual event. About 35 interactive displays from IFAS-related organizations will educate and entertain attendees, she said. Its a great opportunity for students to interact with alumni and professionals who may be in their career area of interest, Carr said. TailGATOR starts three hours before kickoff, and advance tickets cost $12.50 or $15 at the door.Tarantulas and more at TailGATOR A lot of the things we do in the ODome today, we used to do at the Florida Gym back then.Carl Van NessUF archivistCarr
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Kan Li / Alligator Staff WiredUF electrical engineering junior Lisdelys Garcia, 20, works on her LED circuit board for her class Tuesday night. PROCEEDS FROM THE BEER FEST WILL GO TO THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF ALACHUA COUNTY. MEGAN STENNESAlligator Contributing WriterIn a small building toward the back of Magnolia Parke, a new restaurant has something brewing. On Oct. 25, One Love Cafe is bringing Beer Fest to Gainesville. The cozy restaurant has been in operation for about a month and sits on a three-acre park. Tickets will be $25 in advance for the event and $35 at the door, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County. Guests will be provided a wristband, enabling them to sample about 40 to 80 types of beer and a handful of food items. The cafe will also be open, said Juli Denney, one of the co-owners of the cafe. Guests can choose to sit inside or take advantage of outdoor seating. Just outside of the restaurant is a large projector screen, where guests can watch NFL football games on Thursdays, and guests can watch college games on Fridays and Saturdays. I wanted them to have something like a beer fest because they have the space for it, said Joshua Lane, a regular at One Love Cafe. All of the cafes food is made in-house, Denney said, including the fresh ground-beef hamburgers and the sauces and dressings she prepares personally. I think that sets us apart because we make almost everything from scratch, Denney said. Vegan and vegetarian dishes are also available. Despite the name of the cafe, Denney said it does not serve Jamaican food or have any ties with the late Bob Marley. Instead, the name reads like the engraving on the inside of her and her husbands wedding rings One Love. Currently, the cafe is only open three days a week, Thursday through Saturday, but Denney said she plans to increase its hours once the restaurant has better stability. I try to make everything healthy and fresh, Denney said. Nothing is processed. Its American comfort food with a unique twist, and it still tastes good.New One Love Cafe to bring wide variety to Beer Fest in Gainesville I try to make everything healthy and fresh. Nothing is processed. Its American comfort food with a unique twist, and it still tastes good.Juli Denneyco-owner

The combination of Vernon Hargreaves III and Jalen Tabor on the outside need to contain the vertical game like they did against the Volunteers, and the Gators need to improve in slot coverage. 4.) Third downs will be crucial: One game after converting just two third downs in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Florida improved on its third-down offense against Tennessee on Saturday, converting 35-percent of its attempts.

No. 13 Georgia @ No. 23 Missouri, Noon, CBS Although all the talk in the Southeastern Conference is about the Western division, this weeks matchup could be pivotal to the SEC East race. Missouri leads the East standings, but running back Todd Gurley comes to town with more than 700 yards rushing and eight touchdowns, as well as the best chances to win the Heisman Trophy with his odds at 8/5.
