A utility bike equipped with a small trailer began making deliveries last week for the fair-trade coffee roaster, located at 1331 S. Main St. Since then, its been making its way to local businesses and to the farmers market. During Fest 12, the trailer was downtown providing samples of Sweetwaters custom ALL Blend, inspired by a punk band playing the festival. Itll be all around town, said Mike Weaver, a production manager of Sweetwater Coffee, which creates custom blends and sells organic coffee. Joe Ergle, the companys 24-yearold bike delivery rider, rides out of Sweetwater Coffee on Tuesdays and Thursdays to make the deliveries. Oct. 29 included stops to downtown corner store Pop a Top, Harvest Thyme, Sweetwater Branch Inn and UF campus. Ergle made a second trip to haul a large order for Wards Supermarket. He said he put campus last on the route because he needs a light load to maneuver in the high pedesSweetwater Coffee collaborated with Kanner Karts Bicycle Trailers to source trailers for the delivery service, Weaver said. Steven Kanner, who started the trailer-manufacturing company in August 2012, built a custom trailer for Sweetwater Coffee with signs installed on the side and a rear hitch that will allow additional trailers. My biggest passion is utilitarian cycling showing people that a bike can be used for more than carrying people, Kanner said. He said hes excited to see how the trailer works for the coffee company and hopes it inspires other businesses to do something similar.New bike delivery peddles coffee to downtown businesses Despite Alabama decision, no worries for block seating at UF THE LAST TIME THE TICKET OFFICE THREATENED TO REVOKE SEATING WAS ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO. STEVEN KATONAAlligator Staff Writerskatona@alligator.orgStudents who get their football tickets in block seating at UF can breathe a little easier. Privileges will not be taken away for leaving a football game early. UF has no intention of mirroring the University of Alabama, which recently suspended 20 of its 36 block sections for excessive tardiness or early departure from the stadium. Mike Hill, executive associate athletics director for external affairs, said there are no plans or discussions at all about taking block seating away from UF students, including the larger Greek-life blocks, for leaving early. Thats how it should be, said Jackson Crumit, a 21-year-old UF accounting sophomore, who is the ticket chairman for fraternity Sigma Chi. Its our decision to leave early because we are paying to go to the games. Students who belong to organizations at Alabama, mostly fraternities and sororities, that hold tickets to pre-designated sections in the stadium will still be allowed to attend to sit. Travis Leyndyke, who was promoted to director of ticket operations at UF two weeks ago, said UF doesnt really track people leaving early. I guess it could be possible by looking because we know where their seats are, but we dont have any policies to where itll be taken away, he said. The only reason block seating gets taken away now is if there are issues during a game, Leyndyke said. to revoke block seating was about three years ago. Some blocks were screaming vulgar things toward the opposing fans, Leyndyke said. Thats how it should be. Its our decision to leave early because we are paying to go to the games.Jackson CrumitSigma Chi ticket chairman


4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013William A. England / Alligator StaffUnder Construction COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff Writercwright@alligator.orgcially announced his candidacy in the upcoming 2014 gubernatorial election in St. Petersburg on Monday. Except this time, hes running as a Democrat. Crist will compete with Nan Rich in the Democratic primary with other candidates. Rich was a state senator until 2012 when term limits forced her to retire from the senate. Crist served as the Republican governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011, after which he endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election in 2012. Months later, Crist changed Democratic Party. After an unsuccessful run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in 2010, Crist said he was running again to take back the state from incumbent candidate Gov. Rick Scott. We are a state that embraces outsiders, even outsiders like Rick Scott, Crist said in a speech Monday. We deserve a governor who believes all Floridians deserve a voice, not just those who agree with him, or who can write the biggest check. UF political science and sustainability studies senior Maria Martinez met Crist at the 2013 Florida Democratic State Party Conference in Orlando last month. Martinez, 20, and Crist discussed the importance of environmental issues as well as LGBT equality and immigration. He was obviously gauging support and trying to see what issues mattered most to Floridians for the upcoming elections, she said. Martinez said she couldnt say if she supported the former governor in his past elections, however she will most likely campaign for him in the upcoming race. I do feel like I share more ideological views with him now than back then, she said. UF College Republicans spokesman Michael Christ said Scotts record compares favorably to Crists record, citing how unemployment has decreased and job creation has improved since Scott became governor after Crist. He said UF College Republicans will support Scott for re-election. You clearly saw someone who was more concerned about his personal career and his own political ambitions than the state, the 20year-old political science junior said. Hes about to run out of parties. Although history and economics senior Josh Cole might not vote in the upcoming election, the UF Libertarians president said Crist seems to be somewhat libertarian on social and economic issues. Combining those two could make a powerful candidate who has hopefully recognized that economic restrictions hurt the most vulnerable among us, the 21-year-old said.Charlie Crist announces candidacy for Florida governor Hell run as a Democrat BAILEY MULLINSAlligator Contributing WriterWith the passing of a law requiring some restaurants to display the caloric information of their food products, a UF survey shows most adults still do not know how many calories they actually need. The menu labeling law is part of the Affordable Care Act, said Lauren Headrick, lead author of a paper about the survey. The law requires restaurants with 20 or more chains or 20 or more vending machines to show the calories in each item on their menus. We wanted to gauge whether or not the info on the menu would be useful, Headrick said. The UF survey of 978 people of varying height and weight found adults overwhelmingly underestimated the amount of calories they need daily to maintain their current weight. What we hypothesized was that obese individuals would overestimate their calorie needs the most, said Michelle Zitt, a UF nutritional sciences doctorate student who conducted the survey with three other students. We found just the opposite. She said people who diet underestimated their caloric needs even more because of the focus on calorie counting, which overlooks other important aspects of nutrition. Researchers were surprised and students in health-related majors were no more educated on their caloric needs than other adults. Across the board, people underestimated their energy requirement, Headrick said. Zitt blamed diet culture and a lack of nutritional education for adults misunderstanding their nutritional needs. Its not that we think that labeling on the menus is a bad idea, she said. We just think its important to educate people so they can use that and the menu labeling to make decisions.Adults underestimate calorie countsStudents are also taking classes in cartoon, drawing to enhance skills The engineering students were put into nine groups this semester and were teamed up with dancers from the College of Fine Arts. With the techniques they learned from the dance classes, each team was tasked with explaining their product through dance choreography using the dancers. The idea is to cross-pollinate and see how we learn from each other, said Elif Akcali, an industrial and systems engineering associate professor, who is heading this new portion of the course made possible by a grant given from the Andrew Daw, a 21-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering senior, said he is looking forward to taking the class in Spring 2015 because the course helps engineering students not take things so seriously. Additionally, design students are also taking classes in cartoon and drawing to enhance their storytelling skills. We all have analytical minds and are black and white when it comes to things, Bagiardi said, so this is trying to get us to think in that gray area of being creative. Da ANCeE, from page 1Electric bills cheaper than in Fall 2012at this point, she said. Theyll probably start seeing it in their December billing. For October 2012, the total cost of 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity was $127.67. As of October 2013, the rate was $124.15 about $3 cheaper, she said. Litton Jensen said water rates have already increased 10 cents, but she said the higher utility charges residents are seeing could simply be usage issues. The water charge did go up a little bit, but each apartment complex is structured differently in how they handle their utilities, so its hard to make the generic conclusion that (increased water rates) will apply to everyone, she said. Litton Jensen said some apartment complexes have begun emailing residents informing them their bills would go up because of the increase. But utilities caps most likely wont change. A manager for one local apartment complex acknowledged she is affected by the issue but could not comment at corporate managements request. Wendy Roth, a 22-year-old UF nursing junior, said the bill decrease from September to October was true for her. She would be disappointed if she noticed a future climb in her utility rates. would really suck, she said.

ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgA truck arrived on the Plaza of the Americas on Monday offering to pay students $1 to watch a four-minute video for animal rights. UF is the most recent stop on the year-and-a-half-long Billion Lives tour, said Stephanie Frankle, a 26-year-old tour assistant for Farm Animal Rights Movement, the program behind the campaign. We drive this truck all over the country, mainly to college campuses, music fests, anywhere with a lot of people, she said. The truck spends several hundred dollars per stop and is all donation-run. A normal day typically costs about $300, Frankle said. The mission of the campaign, Frankle said, is to encourage students to cut back on meat or to more seriously consider a vegetarian or vegan diet. The four-minute video shows images of large-scale factory farming and animal slaughter that some students call intense and graphic. However, Asami Hayashi, a 21-year-old UF linguistics senior, said she didnt feel forced to watch the video or that there was undue pressure to convert to a meat-free lifestyle. It was a little uncomfortable to watch, she said. I recently learned about it in my nutrition class, so it was very relevant to me. I was kind of curious to see it anyway. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 William A. England / Alligator StaffFarm Animal Rights Movement, an organization promoting a vegan diet, paid students $1 to watch a four-minute video promoting its cause Monday afternoon. The video informed viewers about the slaughter of animals for food in the U.S. FUNDRAISING ENDS THURSDAY. MARIA LLORENSAlligator Contributing WriterIts hard to make the older format of radio play nicely with the Internet, but inside a studio downtown, a group of music lovers is trying to make it happen. Grow Radio, a local Internet radio station that broadcasts from Gainesville, offers an eclectic mix of music featuring local disc jockeys. The station joined many other independent businesses in September by going online to ask for needed funds to continue its operations. Of the $25,000 it needs to pay bills and buy supplies, the station has made $5,425. Fundraising ends Thursday night. Unlike Kickstarter, Indiegogo gives campaigns the option of keeping donations even if the goal isnt met. Without the money to keep the power on, we cant broadcast, said Jeremy Murdock, a Grow Radio DJ. General manager Bill Bryson created the online fundraising campaign page on Indiegogo at After relying on a handful of donors for years, he decided the station needed to ask more of its listeners to contribute to rising costs. The station is in need of better technology and maintenance. Bryson created Grow Radio in 2009 with a group of friends who thought Gainesville lacked an alternative radio station. Nobody was playing any music that we liked, he said. Indiegogo also requires campaigns provide tiered rewards, or perks, to donors. So Grow Radio collaborated with local businesses to offer guided tree climbs, welding lessons, passes to Fest, a subscription to Vice magazine and other items like T-shirts. If the station doesnt meet its goal, Bryson intends to explore other options. He plans to sell merchandise and ask for donations year-round on the stations website. Bryson said Internet stations like Grow Radio struggle to attract attention because its competing with FM radio stations. Using Internet stations can require connecting a phone to car speakers, and he said most listeners prefer the passive experience tion. Thats all it takes to discourage some people, he said. Some listeners, like 22-yearold UF alumnus Joseph Villavicencio, think its worth the effort. Grow Radio plays music peotheir own, he said. DJ Leela Corman plays mostly Middle Eastern music on her show. Her goal is to expand the ears and minds of her listeners beyond auto-tuned pop robots, she said. Great radio serves the community its in, Corman said. This is something so valuable.Grow Radio $20K short of Indiegogo goalGators offered $1 to watch videosAnimal rights group paid

Being told by Business Insider writers that their job position should be eliminated. Last week, Business Insider editor Henry Blodget wrote a whiny article about the bathroom attendant service offered at Balthazar, a brasserie restaurant in New York City. He didnt complain about the quality of service; rather, he called it extortion-by-guilt. Basically, he didnt particularly feel like tipping the dude a dollar for turning on the sink. At the end of the article, he wrote, So I am hereby appealing not just to the bosses at Balthazar, but to restaurateurs and hoteliers all over the world, to eliminate this service. The owners of Balthazar responded by doing just that. As an update to the article, Blodget posted, Good news! The boss at Balthazar, Keith McNally, apparently agrees with me and also doesnt like the bathroom attendant service he has asked his employees to provide. Hopefully, as he phases it out, he will reassign the talented employees who provide it to the dining room. Take a careful look at that language. Blodget doesnt know that the bathroom attendants will be reassigned. After all, the skill sets required by a bathroom attendant and a server or busboy are different, and hes naive to think that a restaurant owner will bother to train new workers. Nope; the most likely scenario involves some newly unemployed workers in one of the most expensive cities in the U.S. The whole situation is just icky. In a section of the article, Blodget complains that he doesnt need someone to turn on his water for him and writes, Thanks, but I actually dont need someone to turn on the water for me. First of all, it wastes water. Second, it makes me feel like Im the kind of guy who dreams of being rich enough to be able to pay someone to turn on the water for me. Look, dude, I hate to break it to you, but youre already eating breakfast at a place that boasts a $20 French toast plate. But, as they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and thanks to one pretentious writer who doesnt have a background in restaurant management, some innocent workers are out of a job. The article is absurdly long. Like, this guy actually took time out of his day to write an opinion article for a huge publication about a service that minorly inconveniences him real hard-hitting journalism. Its easy for Blodget, however; while he gets to continue chowing down on $22 eggs Benedict and writing crap articles, real people are out of a job. To top it off, Blodget took to Twitter to try to explain himself. The people of Twitter didnt disappoint, however. vor, youd be pralines and d**k. 59 TOTAL VOTES22% YES 78% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgMondays question: Are you worried there will be a wine shortage? Todays question: Do you count calories? What does revolution mean in todays complex world? olution across the world in 2011. The Arab Spring and this years mass manifestations against government corruption in Turkey and Brazil prove that anarchy on the streets still exists and moves millions. But as the world develops and technology advances, oppression becomes less tangible. An analysis by the Guardian published last week explains how the National Security Agency has been collecting data methods and scope reaching far beyond what was once proportioned to the defense organization. The article explains the revelations that Edward Snowden made earlier this year. The former NSA employee has been both lauded as a heroic whistleblower and condemned as a treacherous spy. But one thing Snowden did do is bring the NSA to our attention again. In 1978, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was passed to prevent the NSA from overstepping boundaries, especially because of the Americans who fell under their scrutiny: anti-war protesters, union leaders and civil rights activists. Until 2008 when that act was amended, the NSA could only watch out for foreign suspects if it thought it was necessary to investigate. Since 9/11, fear of terrorism has urged Congress to give the NSA some more leg room. In 2012, the amendment was renewed, allowing the NSA to watch virtually anyone. Telecommunication and Internet companies have admitted to complying with NSA requests for user data and even weakened their own encryption services, according to the documents Snowden revealed. We might not have anything to hide from the government, but it doesnt mean our most intimate communications should be on display for a small group of people with unlimited access. Thats bordering totalitarianism. Now, for all this talk of anarchy, I have to admit I believe a free society needs law and order to function. The supreme law of the land is the U.S. Constitution. Modern society is complicated by abstract ideas our forefathers could never have imagined in 1787. What could James Madison know about tweets or source codes or IP addresses? However, the document can help us realize how the government has gone too far and perhaps how we can loosen that invisible hands grip. The Fourth Amendment of the constitution states the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. Theres no doubt the NSA has violated the supreme law of the land by searching and seizing our information on our virtual property. While the purpose of surveillance is to be a tool of defense, the collection of phone and email records is a serious infringement of that right to reasonable privacy. Another amendment in the Bill of Rights was created to provide U.S. citizens with a way of self-defense and resistance to oppression. The right to keep and bear arms was once about letting Revolutionary-era Americans own weapons so they could rise up against a potentially corrupt system. But we can also inform ourselves through the work of whistleblowers and hacktivists, like Snowden, or the hacker organization, Anonymous. The decentralized group has called for millions to march today. Its mission statement calls for a reformation of the infrastructure of the government, to remind this world what it has forgotten, That fairness, justice, and freedom are more than just words. In 2013, owning a handgun and a militia mentality wont protect you against the governments invasion of privacy. But we can arm ourselves with the same thing the government is using to assess and control the public: information. Daniela Guzman is a UF journalism senior.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 With former Republican and former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist announcing his gubernatorial candidacy on Monday, all eyes will eventually rest on our state in 2014. He will most likely be the Democratic challenger to face off against current Gov. Rick Scott. The main question that will be asked is, Can the turncoat win Florida is a purple state. Conservative Sen. Marco Rubio and liberal Sen. Bill Nelson represent the state in the Senate, and 17 Republicans and 10 Democrats serve in the House of Representatives. The state is led by Scott with a Republican legislature. President Barack Obama carried the state in the 2012 and 2008 presidential elections. If there is a state in which a former governor who Democrats will vote for their guy, period. Their guy preous political experience. His status as a former Republican probably wont bother them. It is important to take two things into consideration: his tenure during his time as governor and his 2010 race for the Senate. During his tenure in Tallahassee, Crist vetoed a bill that would ban taxpayer-funded abortions, and he supported environmental policy that opposed offshore drilling. These are no-nos in the current state of the Republican Party. He also nominated judges and justices who varied in their political ideology. Crist was a moderate to left-leaning Republican governor. In 2010, he challenged former state House Speaker Marco Rubio for Floridas vacated Senate seat. Even though Many Republicans are still upset the moderate Republican Crist challenged Rubio for the seat. History shows more Republicans than Democrats turn out to vote in non-presidential elections. Right-leaning independents and Republicans will make the difference in this election. They will decide if they want four more years of Crist at the helm or if his party change will affect their vote. I propose that Crist will win the Democratic primary but lose to Scott in the general election. Florida voted for Obama in the last election. Here are my reasons: First of all, Florida is a pretty right-wing state. The state is pro-gun and pro-life, among other right-wing policy positions. Many municipalities Miami, Orlando and Tampa to name a few do have a large amounts of Democrats. However, the state has a stronger rural population that supports Republicans and will turn out for the election. Second of all, Florida voted for Obama 50 to 49 last year. Everybody who was likely to vote did just that they voted. It was not a landslide victory for Obama in Florida. As previously stated, off-year elections favor Republicans and tend to have lower voter turnouts. Third, the most galvanized group in the state and the country, for that matter is the right-wing populists. They do not like Crist, did not support him in the Senate race and ably have the strongest get-out-to-vote efforts and will mobilize supporters. Even though they may not support some of Scotts policies, they will certainly unite to defeat Crist. Even though this prediction is like picking a football team to win the Super Bowl before the season even starts, it is important to realize that Florida will be in the national political spotlight for 2014. If history tells us anything, we have a lot to worry about. This election will be divisive, dirty and will attract a lot of super PACs. Heres to looking forward to the madness. Michael Beato is a UF economics sophomore. His column runs on Tuesdays.Can former Gov. Charlie Crist win? Column Michael As a recreational activity, reading is a rewarding source of personal enjoyment, relaxation, stress relief and intellectual probing. This is because it trains the minds attention span, strengthens ones ability to discern implicit and subtle meanings, allows people to learn, exposes us to diverse topics and varied opinions and appearing as a circular argument, is valid. Continually improving reading skills can create a virtuous, self-reinforcing cycle. As one reads more, one reads better. Reading has some clear advantages over other popular recreational activities. Books are light and portable and require no maintenance aside from normal care. By using the library and by borrowing books from others, books can be obtained for little to no money. They provide many hours of use, with none of the negatives associated with the use of electronics, such as the use, waste and cost of electricity or the monetary cost of tech products. No matter what your major or discipline, reading will help strengthen the skills you need, be they logic-based, creative, memorization or information retention. Reading makes you a better problem solver by enabling you to think through situations encountered in books or predict the parts you havent read yet. By testing your reading level with either a you can practice a higher work ethic and improve your ability to persevere through a challenge. Dont worry about the opportunity cost; by spending time reading, valuable time has been used, not wasted. Nathan Bick is a writer for the Johns Hopkins News-Letter.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Savannah Jordan was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year on Monday. Read the story on page 16.Gators in the NBAFormer UF forward David Lee scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Golden State Warriors in a 110-90 win against the Philadelphia 76ers. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickKasey Hills debut with the Gators got off to an erratic start Friday night in the OConnell Center. freshman point guard dribbled the ball up the halfcourt. To his right, Hill saw Casey Prather on the wing. Then, Hill hesitated. After a few seconds of contemplation, Hill attempted to dish the ball to Prather, but Florida Southern guard Dominic Lane tipped and stole the errant pass. Fewer than three minutes later, Hill made another mental error. After Lane made a three pointer to cut UFs lead to 28-23, Hill raced through the Moccasins full-court press and attempted a pass to DeVon Walker. But the ball sailed past Walkers hands and bounced by a pack of photographers on the baseline. [Coach Billy Donovan told me to] stop being so loose with the ball, stuff like that, Hill said. Dont be careless. Take every possession like its your last possession. Despite committing two early turnovers and missing Hill calmed down and went half. The Eustis native made tempts to end the half with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting. Hill missed all four of his shots in the secexhibition win against Florida Southern with 17 points the third-best mark on the team. The 6-foot-1 McDonalds All-American also recorded three assists against three turnovers in 26 minutes of action as Floridas starting point guard. layups, with three coming in transition. Hill said he did well attacking in transition and getting open shots for his teammates, but admitted the pace of the college game is far FULWOOD CAUGHT TWO PASSES AGAINST GEORGIA. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusDemarcus Robinson and Ahmad Fulwood have been grouped together since they arrived at Florida. They enrolled early and were expected to help jump start an offense starving for playmakers at the receiver position. On Saturday, for two plays, it lowed him to campus. It was Fulwood. his ability by catching two passes for 22 yards against Georgia at EverBank Field on Saturday. Hes going to be a good football player, coach Will Muschamp said. Hes got to continue to play fast and block well on the perimeter. Did a nice job for us. Hes going to be a really good player. Fulwood caught 11-yard out route in the second quarter. His second reception went for 11 yards on a third and 20 at the 50-yard line. He now has six receptions for 53 yards this season. Hes starting to get in there and get the feel of the game and play to the speed of the game, offensive JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morganNearly two months ago, Will Muschamp led No. 12 Florida into Sun Life Stadium as a three-point favorite Everybody is real disappointed right now, defensive back Jaylen Watkins said. Weve lost three in a row and Conference) East. Now the main goal is to become bowl eligible. Numerous injuries to key players such as quarterback Jeff Driskel, defensive tackle Dominique Easley and running back Matt Jones have compounded a precipitous decline. Florida has already doubled last years total in the loss column with at least four games to go. While the offense ranked 113th nationally with 334.6 yards per game sputters much like it did in 2012, the inexperienced defense has failed to overcome the loss of seven starters from last years team. If you count Easley, who played only three games in 2013 before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in September, that number increases to eight. One glaring struggle for the Gators on the defensive side Matt Riva / Alligator StaffWill Muschamp speaks at a press conference following Floridas 23-20 loss to Georgia on Saturday at EverBank Field in Jacksonville.
