A piece similar to the one pictured should be on permanent display in 2015. State-funded building projects have to set aside money for artpiece and change its composition in real time. The installation is currently planned to vertically span the two lower, public levels of the new buildings lobby. Depea is currently working with UF Facilities, Planning & Construction on the logistics. The interactive wall will be built into the new buildings structure. Its expected to be completed by the grand opening of the renovated Reitz around Fall 2015. Amy Vigilante, director of university galleries, said whenever a state building is being built, a certain percentage of that buildings funds is required to go toward buying art. Every project with state funding sets aside 0.5 percent of the construction budget with a maximum of $100,000 for Art in State Buildings program, Orlando wrote in an email. The Reitz Union has a $100,000 line item for the ASB, and it has been in the budget since the projects inception. Once the money was set aside, a committee was formed to select the artist. Student representatives suggested the piece be young and interactive, and the that purpose. Depea is a graduate of the New World School of the Arts high school in Miami, which is partnered with UF. He went there, so were kind of proud of that because he really is an alum, Vigilante said. Since then, Depea has received his bachelors degree in architecture from the University of Miami and his masters in architecture from Harvard. Orlando said the fact the artwork chosen for the Reitz renovation is a contemporary age. young, energetic, creative people, Orlando said. I think thats a good connection and a good message to convey.

The Florida Sensation is known to have a desirable taste, but some say its best attribute is having early production yield throughout the year. The Florida Sensation strand has a very steady production. This means the strand may produce strawberries even before Christmas, which is very early, Campbell said. This strand is very lucrative. The two breeds have been produced through markerThrough traditional breeding, strands take more than 10 years, with 30,000 to 100,000 crossings to show promise. Through genetic mapping, we saw the promise in these strands and saw it as important to move into patent, Campbell said. Thanks to marker-assisted breeding, we have a road map to see where we want to make UF is now looking to negotiate with parties interested in licensing and growing the variety.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Sept. 20, 1976 A cheating scandal dishonored the then 64-year-old UF Honor Code, leading to an update to make it more useful. Rather than signing the honor pledge on every assignment, students would have to sign a commitment to academic honesty on their academic advisement card. Although 90 percent of cheating cases were handled privately, the change put heavier emphasis on the Student Judiciary. Sept. 18, 1984 Gainesville Fire Rescue ignited some order to be paid at the same rate as their Gainesville counterparts. The County Commission said it would be unlikely they would get the $358 raise, as the two city contracts were designed differently.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgAs Alachua County schools are getting classes into odds. Horizon Center is the nearest local alternative school, also called a last-chance school, which is a cattunity for troubled students to turn their lives around. Anntwanique Edwards, the assistant principal of the center, located at 2802 NE Eighth Ave., said a handful of its staff are UF graduates, including the principal. Even though last-chance schools are sometimes considered a tough environment, Edwards said its no more challenging than teaching at a standard school. Generally, the kids have disciplinary issues and have had a lot of opportunities to make changes and havent been able to do that, she said. A lot of people think because theyre not in their zoned schools, theyre troubled kids. But you get here and you think, Theyre the same as the kids on other campuses. Molly McDole, a 21-year-old UF education senior, said although teaching at alternative schools could be teachers to leave an impression on students. I can only imagine how hard a job like that would plying some new methods in the classroom could offer kids a new perspective on education. McDole said teaching students with disciplinary issues could help teachers change their perspectives on those who attend alternative schools. A lot of what our program teaches is to leave our preconceived ideas at the door, she said. said working at a last-chance school could help young teachers hone their skills and develop more understanding. I think we can learn a lot about working with kids and what kind of techniques work for trouble students, she said.

The organisms have the potential to be used as a source of oil, UF graduate research assistant and doctoral student Elton Goncalves said. In fact, he said he is certain renewable energy is headed in that direction. Goncalves, 27, recently found that oil accumulation in algae occurs within three hours of nitrogen being removed from the medium, according to a study published in the journal Planta. Scientists previously believed the timetable to be closer to two days. Bala Rathinasabapathi, a UF horticultural professor who worked on the study, said the discovery was a small step in the algal-oil process. There is still a paradox to overcome, Rathinasabapathi said, because when nitrogen is removed from the medium chloroplast is a key element of photosynthesis. Without it, the algae begin to go dormant or die. However, the removal of the nitrogen stimulates oil accumulation. Therefore, Rathinasabapathi said, the problem is that scientists know how to get oil from the algae, but they dont know how to do so without killing it. now know they have to study the cells three hours, not three days, after stressing the algae. Seventy percent of the cells mass becomes oil when the alga is stressed. If scientists can learn which switches trigger nitrogen. Algae have been used in the past to create biofuel, Rathinasabapathi said, but discovering this pathway would make the process easier, more productive and more economically feasible. Ann Wilkie, a UF environmental microbiology associate professor, is also optimistic about the future of algae as a renewable resource. Algal biofuels offer great promise, she said. Anything that helps us understand the metabolism of the cell is certainly a step in the right direction.

Campus rape has been an issue for decades, and only recent progress has been made in holding universities accountable for disciplining aggressors and providing appropriate victim services for survivors. This week, were running an editorial series on the issue of underreported rape on college campuses, what UF can do to change students attitude toward sexual violence and what students can do to help their peers and aid the cause. versity rape scandals this year. According to Time magazine, by Rights had received 48 complaints regarding Title IX violations related to sexual violence. The most recent scandal involves Vanderbilt University football player Chris Boyd. However, its not that sexual violence is rising, but as more resources become available to women, more women are coming forward and reporting sexual assault and rape. The often-quoted statistic that about one in four women will be raped while attending college has remained unfortunately constant. The fact that more schools are being held accountable gives us hope, especially because reports of universities mishandling sexual violence cases are in the news almost every week. One of the most striking cases of administrative inaction in regard to campus rape is at Amherst College, a supposedly progressive small liberal arts college in Massachusetts. In 2012, Amhersts student newspaper published a rape survivors story of how her case was grossly mishandled by the administration. A counselor reportedly told the victim that pressing charges would be useless and was advised to forgive and forget. The victim ended up transferring out of Amherst, while her rapist graduated with honors. Of course, its no surprise that universities make an effort to cover up scandals, especially ones concerning sexual violence. The cost of one rape victims transfer out of the college is far smaller than negative national attention, especially for highly ranked schools. For example, Amherst has consistently held the No. 2 spot in the U.S. News & World Report National Liberal Arts College Rankings, and negative press could affect that rating. This sends a damaging message to women, especially victims of sexual violence, and contributes to the low reporting rates of rape and assault: About 95 percent of campus rapes go unreported, according to the American Association of University Women. Women shouldnt have to mitigate the effects of rape sexually transmitted diseases, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder on their own, and colleges need to aggressively move forward in preventing campus rape and counseling victims.

Todays question: Will you download Chipotles game app?Scandalized politicians losses offer hopeEverybody knows politics is a dirty business, and Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer learned that fact the hard way, and last week, they watched their podid in the red zone against Miami. Weiner and Spitzer were once two of the brightest political stars in New York. Weiner was the hard-charging liberal congressman, and Spitzer was the state attorney general and then governor who took pride in putting cheating investment bankers behind bars. However, once Weiner sent lewd photos over Twitter and Spitzer was caught having sex with a high-priced escort, the game was over. Both men resigned in disgrace and their political careers appeared to be dead. Oh, how short the memory of a voter can be or so Weiner and Spitzer hoped. Earlier this year, both men took bold steps to rehabilitate their political careers, but especially for Weiner it all came crashing down. Weiner ran for mayor of New York City, while Spitzer ran for city comptroller. At the start, both campaigns appeared solid, and it seemed, for an instant, that New Yorkers were just as forgiving toward Weiner and Spitzer as much of the United States was toward Bill Clinton. Spitzer remained relatively quiet in the national press throughout his campaign and actually fared well last week but still came up short. The defeat of both Weiner and Spitzer underscores lowing sex scandals. By and large, Americans dont trust politicians. offenders on the list of people Americans trust least. disloyal, self-serving and outof-touch.

The pink-painted memorial for Lauren Marcus, a recent UF alumna who passed away on Aug. 19, has less than two weeks after it was created. Thats horrible, said Marissa Jaacobi, a 20-year-old UF marketing junior, who was a friend of Marcus and helped paint the memorial. I think its extremely disrespectful. Although painting on the wall is a Gainesville tradition, some students decide to respect the memorial sections, while others choose to paint over them. Jaacobi said when she and her wall, they talked about what would happen when it was eventually painted over. She said she thought people would wait longer. There are lots of other spots that arent dedicated to people, she said. Another one of Marcus friends, Marissa Bernstein, said she was not surprised that section of the wall has been painted again.

The project, UFlourish, started in the Spring as part of a three-year project funded by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. It was developed between the Counseling and Wellness Center, and GatorWell. In the Spring, the campaign was called Find Your Balance and featured images of students with the uplifting phrase and statistics. The next step is underway, which rectly. Were trying to change the stigma surrounding mental health and getting help, said Health Promotions Specialist Sarah Martin. That includes use of protective strategies for stress, anxiety and depression at the same time before seeking help. According to a national survey of college students in 2012, posted on the GatorWell said they were overwhelmed and 30 percent said they felt so depressed that it was difThe Fall campaign of UFlourish is now composed of several different targeted messages including get active, take a deep breath and youre not a burden.

BROOKE BAITINGERAlligator Contributing WriterThe downtown sushi restaurant morphosis since it opened 13 years ago. Remodeling is estimated to take 30 days, during which the restaurant will remain open, said Hirofumi Leung, the restaurant owner and a UF alumnus. Although the front of the building is partially boarded with plywood, he said customers will not be inconvenienced because construction starts at midnight and is cleaned up by morning. Its kind of like elves working in the middle of the night, Leung said. As for the decor, the renovations will include more traditional Japanese inspiration in an effort to incorporate the culture of the food into the atmosphere. JMA Contracting is using recycled wood and steel pieces for the renovations. The beautiful thing about the reclaimed pieces is they have so much history. With technology and everything moving forward, we thought it would be good to go back, Leung said. You cant forget your roots. Myriam Robinson, a 19-year-old UF advertising sophomore, doesnt think the renovations will deter customers. As long as it is clear on the outside that it is still open, I would still go there, she said. Emily Cardinal, a 19-year-old UF journalism sophomore, said she isnt concerned with how the renovations will affect the dining experience. Its my favorite restaurant in Gainesville, she said. Im really excited to see the changes.Dragonfly gets makeover CAMPUS I think its a great idea to get people to start to talk.Michelle Russellelectrical engineering senior People are people.

Echoes of the past whistle along with the mid-state Pennsylvania breeze. Signs bearing Joe Paternos name dot the stadium walls while his statue remains State. I didnt know what to expect from a school that saw its once-revered football program crumble in a month. I arrived in State College on Wednesday to see my girlfriend. We visited the stadium on Friday where the tiny town was abuzz with a matchup against Central Florida looming. State College lives and breathes Penn State football. Perhaps thats a product of having one coach for 46 years, but the experience is something Gainesville ought to emulate. Tents, a la Krzyzewskiville, populated Gate A with students camping out at Nittanyville to select their seats to the seasons second home game. Florida has a similar program with its Beat Tshirt campouts, but these students were waiting since Wednesday. Some games have them tent-living for a week.

Florida also beat Iona and Georgetown to win the Active Ankle Challenge. JONATHAN CZUPRYN@jczuprynUnder coach Mary Wise, the Gators are no strangers to high-powered offenses. Since 1991, Florida has averaged a .297 hitting percentage. Benavia Jenkins 1.000 clip on Oct. 12, 2001, and Chloe Manns .900 clip on Nov. 11, 2011, are among the all-time highest averages in a single game in NCAA history. And with a .338 team average so far this season, the Gators are on pace to be one of the countrys top offenses once again. But the offense will not mean a thing if the defense has more holes than the net on the court. by a visiting opponent in a regular season match since started recording box scores in 1999. During the intermission of the Iona match Saturday afternoon, Wise said she could already see her younger outside hitters being mono-focused on offense while letting their defensive game fall by the wayside. match of the day, Wise saw the Broncos exploit the Gators defense behind the play of middle blocker Stephenee Yancy, who recorded a .613 clip on 20 kills.

Begic sent it to Solaun, who diverted it to freshman Savannah Jordan, who is UFs leading goal scorer. With 9 seconds left, Jordan headed a weak ball into the arms of Endler to bring the match to a 1-1 draw after two overtime periods in Tampa. Although there was 109:30 of missed chances and untimely fouls by No. 9 play, the burden of the game still fell on the shoulders of the 18-year-old Slovenian when the ball landed by her feet with time expiring. Coach Becky Burleigh said although she would have preferred a goal to give the Gators the victory, she was still impressed by the levelheaded play of her freshman. I think Pams position was to try and catch the goalkeeper out of position and play the ball to Havana, Burleigh said. I wouldnt have argued if she had taken that shot. play in the waning seconds.

the entire 110 minutes of play was a test for UF and its ability to maintain composure. Florida quickly found itself down one goal after the Bulls Sharla Passariello found the back of the net in the seventh minute. on Aug. 25. It was a great test for us to go down that early, Burleigh said. It was kind of a mental error on our part to give up the goal, but to see us get that goal back was really a step in the right direction for us. But getting the equalizer took patience by the Gators, who had in the 74th minute. Solaun raised her goal total on the season to four while Falknor recorded her second assist on the year. But after forcing the Bulls into their third overtime of the seatying North Carolina on Aug. 24, 2012. It was an unfortunate tie for us because of the amount of opportunities that we had, Burleigh said. The Gators more than doubled the Bulls eight shots, taking 20, including 10 shots on goal. However, with only one of those balls ending up in the back of the net, it was the worst shooting percentage by Florida since being shut out against Florida State on Aug. 30. But Burleigh said she was proud of her team for doing something it never really had to do all year: come from behind in a tough environment. back and got the equalizer this season, she said. This is going to help create and build our mentality. the setter, the attacker can pinpoint a hole in the defense and exploit it with a quick running hit. Wise said her team will see more of the same from Florida State, which runs a double slide, on Tuesday. As good an offense (as) Western Michigan is, Florida State is one of the best in the country, she said. You just look at the scores from a year ago, and we had no answer for them. So well need our young players to think a lot about defense between now and then. However, even when the Gators had a week to prepare for the three schools visiting to compete in the Active Ankle Challenge, they still struggled defensively. In a radio interview after defeating Western Michigan, Wise said she felt bad for UF associate head coach Dave Boos. Boos drilled the squad on defending the slide the week before the tournament. While Wise continues to work with players like Gabby Mallette and Alex Holston, whom Wise said drove her crazy by being so mono-focused on offense, she said she will continue to lean on Ziva Recek to get the squad through these tough matches. The sophomore outside hitter led all Gators with 21 kills while adding 10 digs for her 12th career double-double. We rely so heavily on her, Wise said. She grounds our team and we rely her IQ, her experience (and) important player for us. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer @rjschaffer After surviving a scare from Western Michigan on Saturday, No. 5 Florida (8-1) has adjustments to make prior to facing No. 16 Florida State (6-3) on Tuesday. The Gators were able to beat the Broncos in four sets (2521, 2522, 2830, 2518) but were troubled by mental errors in the process. It was tough because Western Michigan played so well, coach Mary Wise said. They passed set where they were passing, from a three-point scale, at a 2.7. During the third set, which the Broncos won on an attack error by sophomore outside hitter Gabby Mallette, the Gators failed to close out the match on four different occasions. At the end of the third set, Florida had service errors from libero Taylor Unroe and defensive specialist Holly Pole. Although the Broncos had already been swept twice this season, they challenged the Gators by extending and winning points. Florida committed 13 service errors in the match and had to rely on quick points in order to overcome Western Michigans poise. It was a long weekend in general, Ziva Recek said.

For the women, it was a chance to show their prowess as reigning conference champions. For the men, it was a chance to prove they could win a conference title for the tury. On Saturday, it was the men who stole the show, winning their eighth Mountain Dew Invitational in nine years. Junior Jimmy Clark won the mens 8K with a time of 23:53.78 and senior Mark Parrish I was really happy with the men, coach Paul Spangler said. Mark Parrish and Jimmy Clark were both under 24 minutes, which is a really good time in this sport. Eddie Garcia had a great race. for a freshman here. Very pleased with the guys right now. Clark shaved nearly a minute off his time of 24:50.63 from his seventh-place tational. There was a lot better competition this year than last year, Clark said. We wanted to go out and make sure we defended our home course. I think we came back in better shape this year than we were last year. The opposite could be said for the women this time around. After sweeping the event last season, the womens team sa, who placed second after winning the meet last year. The drop-off from last season can be attributed to injuries. The Gators were without key seniors Stephanie Strasser and Shelby Hayes on Saturday. The results on the womens side are not indicative of what were capable of doing, Spangler said. Two of our top that really hurt us from a team standpoint. That was disappointing, but weve got some time to get those girls healthy and run well when it counts as we get closer to SEC championships.

Those are our top runners, Strausa said. Cory is easing into it right now because she went to worlds and didnt have the same summer workouts as the other too. Shes battling an issue right now. We need those girls. Theyre our strength. Added Spangler: Steph Strasser and Shelby Hayes just have to get healthy. them healthy and cross-trained until we feel like theyre able to get out there and compete. Its disappointing they couldnt go today and obviously that hurt us, team-scoring wise. The primary goal for the women moving forward will be to get healthy. When McGee, Strasser and Hayes are back in the fold, the Gators will have a strong chance of repeating as conference champions. For the men, it will be to maintain the upward trajectory currently being set by upperclassmen Clark, Parrish, Garcia and JL Hines. booster, not just for me, but for our entire team, Clark said.
