PATRICIA POTESTADESAlligator Contributing WriterThe leftover cooking oil from those fried Oreos and Twinkies at the Alachua County Fair last week will likely end up fueling a truck or electrical generator. As part of the Alachua Countys waste vegetable oil recyoil from the fair, said John J. Mousa, county pollution prevention manager. Under Florida law, food vendors are required to properly it with methanol and a catalyst, which creates biodiesel, Mousa said. Corporation, the company that runs the fair, said the fair industry has always looked for a place to get rid of vegetable and motor oils. (Alachua) County has been very progressive here, he said. The county became interested in biodiesel after students cling project. It pursued the project on a larger scale in 2010 but had to stop in December because of complications with state up with a solution with state legislators and was able to restart production. Since the program began, Mousa said the county has collected enough vegetable oil to produce about 3,000 gallons of biodiesel. Instead of ending up as sewage spills in local creeks, Mousa said the energy in the oil is being put to better use.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 IT SURVEYED ADULTS FROM AGES 18 TO 24. LAWRENCE CHANAlligator Contributing WriterPeople are too reliant on their gizmos, and young adults believe its dehumanizing their interactions. A recent study released by Intel Corporation surveyed about 12,000 adults between the ages of 18 and 24 and found more than half felt society relied heavily on technology and made people less human. Genevieve Bell, an anthropologist and director of Interaction and Experience Research at Intel Labs, said although the results might make it seem like young adults are rejecting technology, the reality is more complicated. A different way to read this might be that millennials want technology to do more for them, she said in a statement, and we have work to do to make it much more personal and less burdensome. Adam Worner, a 19-year-old UF anthropology sophomore, said online conversations with friends often feel less personal than talking to them in person. You start getting used to talking to people through a screen, he said. You cant get a heartfelt conversation that way. UF electrical engineering junior Russell Crowe, 20, disagreed. It doesnt seem that way to me, he said. Study: Technology is dehumanizing societyCAMPUS COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff Writercwright@alligator.orgSix people in an environmentalist group received trespass warnings after attempting to enter the McKnight Brain Institute. A group of organizers for the Campaign to Stop Genetically Engineered Trees, an initiative by the Global Justice Ecology Project, said they were trying to see Saturday the room where they would host their presentation, despite being told Thursday presentation had been canceled. The group was scheduled to present Monday night at the institute. Police found six people trying to enter the locked building, according to accounts in the University Polices incident report. One UF student was among the six: 28-year-old William Brandon Jones said he tried using his Gator 1 card to get inside the building because he had reserved a room for the presentation. Jones could not be reached for comment. Witnesses called police after they saw the group trying to catch doors before they closed behind personnel and even had one member of the group, Rachel Kijewski, ask about entering the building to get a backpack, according to the report. (UPD) were rather confrontational, said Kijewski, an organizer with Everglades Earth First! It wasnt clear what was going on. Jones was trespassed from the Health Science Center, and the rest of the group was issued trespass warnings for all UF properties. The warnings stand for three years. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the event was canceled because free space is only offered to registered UF-sponsored organizations. A Global Justice Ecology organization is not registered at UF. They were very deceptive, Sikes said. She said Jones, who was corresponding with the director of the inbeen canceled. A room in the building was reserved by Jones on Sept. 30, according to emails obtained by the Alligator. A UF-led research team received a $6.3 million grant in 2011 to genetically enhance the chemical responsible for creating the scent of Christmas trees to make transportation biofuels, according to Alligator archives. Will Bennington, one of the six who trespassed Saturday, said he thinks the event was canceled for political reasons. It seems kind of unlikely that the room is mysteriously closed for repairs, the campaigner with the Global Justice Ecology Project said. Its pretty likely theyre trying to silence our opinion. The group presented at the Civic Media Center in Gainesville on Sunday. As of Monday, it planned to continue its scheduled presentation at a members house.Environmental group trespasses at UF Its pretty likely theyre trying to silence our opinion.Will Benningtona campaigner with the Global Justice Ecology Project


WINNERS WERE GIVEN DUNKIN DONUTS, STARBUCKS AND PANERA BREAD GIFT CARDS. ISHA CHOKSIAlligator Contributing WriterUF Health Shands Hospital and Flad Architects came together Monday to carve up some fun. The 31st annual Pumpkin Carve-Off was held in the UF Health Shands Atrium on Archer Road to bring Halloween spirit to the children in the pediatric department. Nine teams and 21 individual competitors participated. Tim Williams, a representative for Flad Architects, said this years contest brought Flad closer to Shands pediatric department. Prior to this year it was architects, engineers, contractors and everybody on the construction side, he said. This year, weve opened entrance to the community as well as Shands patients and staff. The children, staff and volunteers at the event were enthusiastic about the pumpkins, games and candy. There were six winning categories and three honorable mentions. The pulmonary medicine team, whose pumpkin was complete with a carved rib cage, wolf head and functioning false lungs, won best in show. The winning team brought home gift cards to Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks and Panera Bread. Christina Eagan, a nurse at UF and member of the pulmonary medicine team, said she was excited about the win. It feels awesome, and it was lots of fun to do, she said. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2013 NO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT FROM THE SPILL WAS REPORTED.

No impact to the environment from the spill was reported, said Mara Burger, a public information specialist for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Burger said oil spills, especially those that happen in Florida, should be taken seriously in every circumstance. One reason, she said, is because the state has shallow aquifers, which is easy for oil to seep into. Most oil spills in cities, she added, are caused by vehicle accidents. we dont want fuel to get into our water systems, she said.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 In 2008, then-candidate President Barack Obama was a tech pioneer. He utilized social media and the Internet to spread his message of Hope and Change to millions of Americans. His Internet-money campaign was unbridled. Because of his many online successes, media social-media president and the man who would usher the federal government into the 21st century. Fast forward to 2013 and we see a different picture. The Internet-exchange website for Obamas signature piece of legislation the Affordable Care Act is an embarrassing failure. Government technology, for the most part, remains primitive. The techsavvy campaigner and chief yet again failed to live up to his 2008 hype. There is a stark difference between private-sector candidate Obama who privately raised millions of dollars for his presidential campaign and public-sector President Obama. Candidate Obama hired Internet wizards to run his online campaign. Techies such as Facebooks co-founder Chris Hughes and the campaigns digital director Teddy Goff were instrumental back in 2008. When Obama used private money to fund his campaign, it was a success, but when President Obama used public money to set up his healthcare exchange website, what resulted was far from a success. Only after the website was universally criticized for its glitches did the president consider calling in computer specialists to properly implement it. Candidate Obama would never allow the website to fail so miserably during its rollout. But this should not surprise anyone. A big difference between the public and private sector is accountability. Candidate Obama had to be accountable for his actions because his hopes of the presidency were on the line. But because he will remain in oftaken into effect. The private sector is held to higher standard than the public sector. Why? Well, in the private sector, every action that is or isnt taken has a real consequence for the business. If a company fails to earn revenue, then that company is forced to make tough decisions for the sake of the business. If a marketing plan fails miserably, you can bet it. If employees do not do their ing of the business is always at risk. The companys revenues are dependent on how well the business runs and turns Now take a look at the public sector. Revenues are constant they come from our taxes. Regardless if the government does a good or bad job, it constantly receives revenue. Accountability, though, is not as constant. In the public sector, if a public program for instance, Medicare adds countless dollars to an everincreasing national debt, it expands and remains unreformed. If a public-sector employee for example, IRS oftargets conservative-sounding groups, the employee does department secretary fails at marketing a piece of legislation, wastes taxpayer money on a botched health exchange website and doesnt work for the people who want her to be held accountable for her actions lets say, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius the secdoesnt assume any responsibility. This would be outrageous if it was not so tragic. The public sector where policy initiatives go to die and where taxpayer dollars are mismanaged remains hopelessly out of control despite the fact that the candidate of hope and savvy president presides over an outdated government bureaucracy and a botched website for a piece of legislation that bears his name. What the public sector needs to do is to act more like the private sector. If only the country had the ability to vote for a businessman who understood the power of the private sector. If only. Michael Beato is a UF economics sophomore. His columns run on Tuesdays.Public sector should emulate Americas private sector ColumnIn recent years, stories on rape have become increasingly formulaic. Were given the same statistics with absolutely no analysis of the cause of rape or real solutions. Recently, articles focusing on rape published by the Alligator contained the phrase rape culture in the title, which was repeatedly referenced and blamed without malizes and allows rape in its society. Joking about rape, making excuses for rapists and street harassers, and scrutinizing a womans dress and behavior instead of the behavior of rapists and street harassers is rape culture. These conditions certainly exist and are a form of sexism, but lumping them together as rape culture ignores the cause of the problem. Men who rape women are the cause of the problem not jokes or poor excuses. In its series of articles on rape, the Alligator suggested UF require incoming freshmen to take a workshop on consent because lack of consent determines rape. But if some men do not know the difference between yes, no and unconscious. The problem is men who are rapists do not hear or respect a woman when she gives any answer they do not want to hear. The problem is these men know how very unlikely it is that they will ever be accused of rape, let alone prosecuted and charged. quency and threat of rape and the notion rape victims are to blame is not the result of a rape culture, but actually the direct result of male supremacy. Male supremacy is the inherent authority and legitimacy men enjoy simply by being male. It is what is at play when men are not afraid of committing a crime because the victim can easily be discredited not with evidence, but by dress or past behavior. It is what is at play when the victims past is more important than the crime committed. It is at play when men dont think anyone will believe the victim and will without a doubt take his side. This male supremacy is built directly into our political, economic and cultural institutions, and until we look at the bigger picture and dig out the root cause, rape and rape culture will always exist. While no one can presume to know how to stop rape once and for all, we do know that progressive change begins with a strong womens rights group who can orreal issue on campus and to provide effective awareness and prevention strategies that respects all women.

The shows unexpected commercial success shines a spotlight on the series biggest issue: The Walking Dead is a good show. It isnt a great show. Why isnt The Walking Dead showered with awards and critical accolades? The zombies arent at fault. Pop culture is more manded massive fan bases and no small amount of critical acclaim. Both were genre shows. Poor writing cripples The Walking Dead. Characterization is the shows most consistent problem. Rick Grimes, the protagonist and de facto leader, is a sucking void of personality, charisma and common sense. In a world as bleak as the shows post-apocalyptic zombie land, you have to give viewers an interesting and engaging character to root for. A show like The Walking Dead cant afford to treat its characters like symbols or plot devices. Post-apocalyptic narratives can easily turn into misery porn. As long as The Walking Dead fails to create interesting and engaging characters, it fails to live up to its full potential. Megan Kallus writes for The Daily Cougar.

ELIZABETH BROWNAlligator Contributing WriterWhile UFs administration pushes toward becoming a top 10 university, college ranking systems are shifting their attention from prestige to value. Washington Monthly,, The Alumni Factor, Forbes and the Princeton Review have recently released varieties of best value rankings, in which they ranked colleges based on affordability and education quality. The New York Times published a story on the trend Sunday. Aaron Watkins, a 23-year-old UF political science senior, said he picked UF over Columbia University because of tuition rates and the fact that his Florida residence offered him a Bright Futures scholarship. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said students and parents are taking the issue of value more seriously, particularly because the cost of a college education is higher than its ever been. He said UF has consistently been ranked as a good value college, and in-state tuition rates remain below the national average. According to UFs Student Financial Affairs website, the average cost of attendance for an undergraduate resident living on or off campus for the 2013-2014 school year is about $20,220. Out-of-state students pay about $42,498. Were pretty hard to beat, Orlando said. Watkins said when he considered where to go to college, post-graduate debt also played a large role in his decision. Pharmacy sophomore Charlotte Jung, 19, said tuition value was the most important part of her choice to attend UF over the University of Illinois at Chicago. Jung, a Florida resident, said her decision made due to smaller loans, especially because she has a younger sister who will be in college in two years. She said she thinks prospective students should take college value into account when choosing colleges. Everyones really worried about money right now, Jung said. Watkins said though prestigious schools are highly ranked and respected, high prices are unreasonable. He said students outlooks and what they do with their education is what matters the most.

ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer@adamDpincus The Riggs family reunion did not go as planned. Cody Riggs had not traveled to Missouri since he visited his aunt in St. Louis when he was 5 years old. He wanted to play well for her and the rest of his family, which made the trip to Columbia, Mo., from South Florida. But the redshirt junior never got the opportunity. With freshman cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III beat in coverage, Riggs left his feet to tackle Missouri receiver LDamian Washington, who held onto the football for a 41It was not a vicious hit.

The city where former Gators tailback Fred Taylor became an NFL star will be the site of Kelvin Florida plays Georgia on Saturday at EverBank Field. Hes continued to improve throughout the season, week to week, coach Will Muschamp said of Kelvin. Hes always been a very instinctive, natural runner. Its very obvious. Again, with assignments and different things, I think hes done a nice job and deserves the opportunity. Taylor has impressed in spurts this season, tallying 172 yards on 28 carries with a touchdown. That score came in a 36-17 loss to Missouri on Oct. 19, when Taylor enjoyed a careerbest day against the Tigers. game since starter Matt Jones was ruled out for the season due to a torn meniscus, Taylor racked up 74 yards on 12 carries, including Floridas lone touchdown at Faurot Field in Columbia, Mo. Hes shown that he can do a lot of good things with the ball in his Freshman halfback to PHILIBUSTER With the score tied heading into the sixth inning and the Boston Red Sox trailing the St. Louis Cardinals two games to one in the World Series, David Ortiz decided he needed to do more than hit Sunday night. He had to say something. ered up his cronies and delivered an impassioned speech. What he said remains mostly a mystery, but the move worked. Boston put two runners on base including Ortiz with two outs in the sixth inning before a three-run home run to give the Red Sox a 4-1 lead. They withstood a late Cardinals rally to win 4-2 and even the series heading into Monday nights game. Coincidence? Maybe. But when Ortiz is involved in something magical during the postseason, I have learned to not even consider doubting the man for a second. He has been the heart and soul of the Red Sox for more than 10 years. Any time this guy puts on a uniform, theres a presence, Gomes told reporters after the game. If this guy wants to rally us together for a pep talk, it was like 24 kindergartners looking up at their teacher. He got everyones attention, and we looked him right in the eyes. That message was pretty powerful. Whatever comes out of his mouth is going to be meaningful, priceless and probably something you dont know. He had everyones attention pretty quick. And he gave us the kick in the butt that we needed. A quick Red Sox history lesson or watching Fever Pitch tells you Boston won a World Series in 1918 before selling Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees and waiting 86 years for another. If not for Ortiz, its likely we would all still be waiting and talking about the Curse of the Bambino instead of having already celebrated two Taylor SEE RIGGS, PAGE 15 SEE PHIL, PAGE 15 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15 Phillip HeilmanTwitter: @phillip_heilman They made the right call.

LANDON WATNICK Alligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnick After the Miami Dolphins fell to the New England Patriots on Sunday in Foxborough, Mass., Dolphins center Mike Pounceys day got even more complicated. According to a Sports Illustrated report, the Massachusetts State Police served Pouncey with a grand jury subpoena after he exited his teams locker room in Gillette Stadium following Miamis 27-17 loss. The subpoena is related to the investigation of Aaron Hernandez, a close friend and former teammate of Pouncey at UF from 2007-09. Police are focusing on Hernandezs potential involvement in intransactions that may have involved Pouncey and Hernandez, although Pounceys involvement remains undetermined. Being served a subpoena does not mean Pouncey has or will be charged with a crime, but police view him as a material witness in the Hernandez case. Despite being served a subpoena, Pouncey traveled back to Miami with the team later that night. Organizationally, we do not have a comment, a Dolphins spokesman said about the situation. And Mike Pouncey does not have a comment. Jordan Reed, tight end: Joragainst the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and the rookie did not disappoint. Reed, the Gators starting tight end last season and a third-round up his breakout performance against the Chicago Bears a week before with another strong showing. He caught eight passes on 14 targets for a team-high 90 yards during the Redskins 45-21 road loss to the Broncos. In his past three games, Reed has recorded 282 receiving yards and a touchdown on 21 catches. Caleb Sturgis, kicker: The gusty conditions in Foxborough clearly affected Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis. goal try a 52-yarder that put Miami ahead 17-3 with 30 seconds went downhill from there. Sturgis second try from 46 yards out in the third quarter drifted to the right and clanked off the upright. The Patriots took advantage of the error, scoring the games next 24 points. goal late in the fourth quarter, hoptouchdown, but Pats defensive end Chandler Jones came off the edge and blocked Sturgis kick, handing the Dolphins their fourth-straight loss after a 3-0 start.

After amassing 208 receiving yards on 10 catches in his past two games, Eagles receiver Riley Cooper had a quiet afternoon with 13 yards on two receptions. For the second straight Sunday, New York Jets receiver David Nelson notched 80 receiving yards this time on eight catches in a 49-9 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

GATORS IN THE NFL Pouncey subpoenaed in connection to Hernandez, report says UNROE HAS 298 DIGS THIS SEASON. ERICA A. HERNANDEZ Alligator Writer @EricaAlyssa If Taylor Unroe keeps digging, Florida will have to replace the OConnell Center The junior was honored on Sunday for reaching 1,000 career digs at UF, and she responded with 31 digs in the Gators two matches last weekend. Unroe arguably had her best full weekend in two matches where she was really good in all three of the things that we ask of her, Wise said. From point scoring behind the service line, anchoring our team serve receive and defending balls. Unroe is the 12th Gator to reach the 1,000dig plateau. The junior currently has 1,214 in her career. I think you combine her serve receive thats been solid since she got here, but her digging skills have improved so much, Wise said. Unroes 31 digs raised her total to a teamleading 298. No other Gator has 200 digs this season. She leads the team with 4.2 digs per set 1.6 more than Ziva Recek. The senior defensive specialist has played a crucial role in Floridas solid defense. The Gators have swept 16 of their 21 wins this season. But Unroe provides UF with more than just high dig numbers. She has also been serving effectively. Unroe is second on the team in total service aces and service aces per set, trailing only setter Taylor Brauneis. since has come to Florida, Wise said. With the jump top spin, and she is the only regular player who serves that for us, these past few matches she has really served the ball well in terms of the pace. Florida bounced back from a loss to Missouri on Oct. 20 which ended the Gators 13-match winning streak to earn two home sweeps the following weekend. Winning in three sets against both the Tigers and Volunteers helped the Gators stay in contention for an Southeastern Conference championship. Winning always helps, Wise said. Playing at home helps. Wises team will not be afforded the luxury of home games this coming weekend. Next up, Florida travels to play two road day and ending with Texas A&M at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
