The current colonnade, the covered brick structure outside the entrance, volving solar-powered chargers, tables and study lighting. Barbara Hood, director of library communications, said fundraising will begin in the next few months and will continue until they have enough to begin building. She said the start date will all depend on when the money is done being raised, but once it begins, it should be completed in about 77 days. The current colonnade will be partially taken down and then rebuilt to be taller and narrower than the existing one, which covers the historic entrance to Smathers Library, Hood said. In the middle of the new colonnade there will be a statue of a gator, similar Stadium. As it stands now, students lounge on the colonnade itself. In the new design, tables and benches.

The addition is a part of the Marston study space renovations, known as Collaboration Commons, which will add more than 700 seats, including 21 study rooms for students come Fall. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said one advantage of having a location in the library is that students dont have to make the trek to Library West and interrupt their studying.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Two American aid workers infected with Ebola are getting an experimental drug so novel, it has never been tested treatment earlier this year, thanks to a long standing research program by the U.S. government and the military. The workers, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, are improving, although its impossible to know whether the treatment is the reason or they are recovering on their own, as others who have survived Ebola have done. They were infected while working in Liberia, one of four West African nations dealing with the worlds largest Ebola outbreak. On Monday, the World Health Organization said the death toll had increased from 729 to 887 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria, and that more than 1,600 people have been infected. In a worrisome development, the Nigerian Health Minister said a doctor who had helped treat Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American man who died July 25, days after disease. Tests are pending for three other people who also treated Sawyer and are showing symptoms. several are under development. The experimental treatment the U.S. aid workers are getting is called ZMapp and is made by Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. of San Diego. It is aimed at boosting the immune sysproduced by lab animals exposed to parts of the virus. In a statement, the company said it was working with LeafBio of San Diego, Defyrus Inc. of Toronto, the U.S. government and the Public Health Agency of Canada on develment in January. The statement says very little of the drug is available, and they are cooperating with appropriate government agencies to increase production as quickly as possible, but gives no details on who else might receive it or when. Writebol, 59, has been in isolation at her home in Liberia since she was diagnosed last month. Shes now walking with assistance and has regained her appetite, said Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based group that she works for in Africa. Writebol has received two doses of the experimental drug so far, but Johnson was hesitant to credit the treatment for her improvement. Brantly, 33, who works for the international relief group Samaritans Purse, also was said to be improving. Besides the experimental dose he got in Liberia, he also received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy, an Ebola survivor, who had been under his care that seems to be aimed at giving Brantly antibodies the boy may have made to the virus. UF WILL INSTALL POSTS. HANNAH FELLAlligator Writerhfell@alligator.orgCourtney McEwen spent her summer saving up for a new bike. The 19-year-old UF nutritional sciences sophomore said she loves her new set of wheels. She likes to ride it to the grocery store, to the gym, where she works. She cant wait to ride her bike more in the future. But starting in the Fall, the one place she cant ride her bike is through the Norman Tunnel. Due to several complaints from UF faculty and other members of the UF community, a construction team will renovate the tunnel to make it safer for pedestrians. The team will install a series of posts and railings to separate cycles. The mix of biker and pedesisnt as safe as wed like it to be, said Scott Fox, director of Transportation and Parking Services at UF. When bicyclists enter the tunnel, many of them struggle to build up enough momentum to pull their weight up the steep incline at the other end, Fox said. In the past, they tried to create separate lanes for bikers and pedestrians, he said, but they had limited success because people really dont stay in their lanes. tunnel, any lines and signs placed in the tunnel were ineffective because theyd just get covered up. Our goal is to create a safer tunnel experience for everybody, he said. When McEwen rides over to Norman, she said she wont mind hopping off her bike. She said she understands that some might be annoyed by the changes, but if the renovations mean that people will be safer when using the tunnel, its a good trade-off. At the worst, it will add 30 seconds to your travel time if you are a biker, she said.

The content may be different, the way we tell stories may change and how we distribute them may evolve, but the core of journalism will remain the same. Tampa Bay Times writer Michael Kruse said in a 2012 TEDxTampa Bay talk that people always tell him that they just want the facts, just the facts, please, just the facts. And these people are liars, he said, because nobody wants just the facts. Its not who we are. Why are they liars? Humans ings 40,000 years ago. Our world revolves around stories. If click bait relays any message besides a need for web page views, its that people like to see what happens with a great white shark after jumping off a cliff. Does he Kruse went on to say that you can argue, but there have only ever been a handful of stories: rags to riches, the quest, voyage and return, overcoming the monster, etc. These are how weve communicated with each other, Kruse said. These are the stories we told ourselves and each other before we could write them down. As I gaze into the future, I see a world full of stories waiting to be told, and there is no better constitutionally protected profession than journalism. tance of good communication. It only takes one missing munication matters, and employers today are looking for someone who not only can write complete sentences, but one who can do it with poise and great form. Im not just talking about newspapers, either. There are so many platforms where writers can tell stories, and as Michael Kruse points out, the future of stories is stories. We think in stories, and we always have, he said. And so now, is this going to change, right now in our lifetime in 2012 because of Twitter, because of Facebook, Youtube, the Internet? If you say anything but no, I will tell you right now that youre wrong. Watch me, and Ill show you.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the Editor Dear editor, I have just read the article in the July 24 edition of the Alligator about meals for homeless folk. Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 100 NE First St., has been serving a hot breakfast to homeless and hungry people every Sunday morning since 1996. Most Sundays, the breakfast menu is mainly pizza from Leonardos Pizza at Millhopper. At the end of the day they give us the remainders of the pizzas they make to sell by the slice. We freeze it each day and then heat it on Sunday. There would not be Streetside Breakfast at Holy Trinity were it not for the generosity of Gregg Brannan and Leonardos Pizza at Millhopper! Dilon Ellis, Coordinator Streetside Breakfast at Holy Trinity Episcopal Letter to the EditorAbout a month ago, Vice published a quiz to test its readers Can you tell which of these porn star orgasms are fake? Apparently, I cant. But the quiz brought up some good points. First, Im glad my apartment walls are so thick. Second, faking orgasms is pretty common and also undetectable enough that I couldnt tell the real moans from the fake ones. Heres the thing, though: An actual orgasm is more likely to be quiet than to be riddled with moans and f**k yes, according to sex educator Laci Greens YouTube video about faking orgasms. In fact, vocalization is often not because of excitement at all. A 2010 study done by Gayle Brewer and Colin Hendrie showed that more than 25 percent of women routinely used vocalization moaning, screaming, yelling harder to fake orgasm. If you want to get real technical, it makes sense that women would turn to screaming to prove an orgasm more than men, who statistically dont fake orgasms as often, would. Men ejaculate during orgasm. But its a little harder to tell when a woman comes, which is why they often rely on sounding like the unedited version of Hey Baby, by Deadmau5 to convey their pleasure. moaning Dont stop because you actually dont want your partner to stop. But if your cries of Dont stop really mean Its been a long time, and my leg is cramping, so hopefully my sexy moaning will make you come, and then we can watch reruns of Friends, youre not doing yourself, or your partner, any favors. Using vocalization to fake orgasm, or just faking an orgasm through any means, gives your partner false positive reinforcement. Youre communicating that what they are doing is pleasurable even if it might not be. I totally get it. Sometimes youre distracted, and even if sex feels great, you know youre not going to come. Sometimes youre tired and dont want to keep having sex. This is actually a fairly common phenomenon, according to Womens Health Magazine, which idenreasons why women fake orgasms. Other reasons include wanting to avoid hurting their partners feelings and feeling insecure about not having an orgasm. Pretending to have an orgasm seems like the less awkward route compared to saying, Hey, thanks so much for trying to get me off, but its just not working out. Good try though, champ. Youll get it next time. Maybe thats not the right thing to say either, but my point is that you should be saying something not just moaning it. When you moan and scream and pretend to come, your partner gets the message, What Im doing is good, they like this, and Im going to continue to do this because it seems to be getting them off. Its more productive in the long run if you use your words (or even physical actions) to communicate how youre feeling. If your partner just isnt hitting the right spot, move your partners hand to a better position, or show what would feel better. If the issue is that youre just not feeling like you can reach orgasm that night, its just as easy as faking it to say, What youre doing feels so good, but I dont think its going to happen right now, and focus on your partners pleasure instead. Dont be afraid to start a dialogue with your partner. It can be nervewracking to tell them that theyre not getting you off, but they should want you to feel good. Start by telling them what theyre already doing well, and then give them suggestions on what you would like more of. This is a more constructive way of talking about such a sensitive subject, plus its a lot nicer than saying, Dude, you suck at sex, and Ive been faking it this whole time. Moral of the story: Its OK to sound like a porn star when you have sex provided your walls are thick but be careful not to put on a show. Faking it distracts from the opportunity to work with your partner toward having an earth-shattering, porn-worthy orgasm every time and thats something you deserve. Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior. Her columns appear on Tuesdays. Faking an orgasm is preventing the avenue to real pleasureColumn Robyn Being a columnist for the Alligator was one of the best experiences I could have asked for. It has brought me an unprecedented amount of joy for the past three semesters. I have enjoyed writing every article, forming every sentence and being the most opinionated person in my circle of friends (it comes with the column territory). And just because my picture (circa-2013) will no longer grace the opinions section, that does not mean I will keep my opinions to myself. First and foremost, to all of the students at UF, realize we are the future of this state, country and world. We will one day be the CEOs/professors/politicians/whatever of the future. We will have the ability to shape future events not be taken lightly and should not be shrugged off. Second, be skeptical. If someone is promising something that is too good to be true, it probably is. Though this may seem commonsensical, every time an election is in full swing people will believe anything that a person on a stump will say. Developing an opinion often comes from thinking differently from the mass consensus and those in power. And last, dont be content with voting for the lesser of two evils. Voting for an unsavory candidate for the seems a little odd for a columnist who talked so much about politics to be OK with a person not voting. I like to equate the situation like this: If you go to the store to get an apple, and the two apples that are available to you are not acceptable, you shouldnt be expected to choose one apple over the other. However, this doesnt mean that you become politically disenfranchised. On the contrary, this means that you have to creating a think tank can lead to positive changes. I know that this might seem like an odd grab bag of fortune-cookie advice and personal musings. Well, it is. But one thing to take away from all of this is for it. The future is counting on it. Michael Beato is a UF economics junior. His column appears on Tuesdays.Be skeptical, be opinionated Column Michael About two years ago, my family and I were forced to put down our golden retriever. Her name was Sundance, and she was about 14 years old. Cancer had taken its toll on her body. She was covered in tumors. She had stopped eating and was losing weight rapidly. Someone, thinking we were abusing her, even reported our family to the police after we took a trip to the local dog park. She was that skinny. Whatever quality of life she once had was swallowed whole by her disease, and we could not stand to watch her decay any further. According to the Humane Society of the United States website, U.S. shelters euthanize about 2.7 million cats and dogs each year, all of whom are adoptable and healthy. Our dog, Sundance, did not fall into this category of healthy animals being euthanized. She was already gone by the time the veterinarian came to our home and sodium pentobarbital. According to PETAs website, these deaths by animal euthanasia I have to agree. In cases where animals are left terminally ill and there is no quality of life, I do support animal euthanasia, which literally means the good death in Greek. However, euthanasia for the rest of the 2.7 million cats and dogs that are put down yearly simply because there is nowhere else to put them is inhumane, lazy and, most importantly, murder. Although a great amount of blame can be placed on the shoulders of overpopulated and crowded shelters, we must look at ger, in this case, at the people putting more Breeders, puppy mills, and even those families who do not adopt from shelters are all to blame for this killing cycle. We also must not forget about those owners who bite off more than they can chew when purchasing animals and often dump them As a foster home, my family and I have had too many puppies come in and out of our house under such conditions. I can remember my family fostering dogs when I was just a kid. This summer alone, Meatball, a lovable black shih tzu mix, was found in Hale, Missouri. A friend of ours was contacted and picked him up before he could be taken to a kill shelter. Piper and Bologna, two shepherd mixes, were advertised on a swap-and-shop Facebook the end of the day, they were going to be put puppies might have found themselves faceto-face with death by lethal injection. One reason the Humane Society reports ters all over the U.S. is because of low adoption rates. There are not enough people adopting dogs to balance out the number of dogs being rescued and put into shelters in According to a May 13 online article in the Topeka Capital-Journal, Kansas ranked second in highest number of breeders in the Humane Societys census of dog breeder facility (puppy mill) violations out of 20 states. For those of you curious as to where pet stores get their dogs, puppy mills are your best bet. The article includes conditions such as dead rodents, severe matting of fur and excessive fecal matter. I could talk your ear off about disgusting and cruel puppy mills, inhumane breeders looking to make an extra buck or bad animal owners in general. But in order to make a big change, sometimes only the smallest step is needed. Visit your local shelter when thinking about purchasing your next pet. I know all of the puppies I ever fostered were given away for basically nothing, if money is ever a factor. Think of the hundreds of dollars you could save just by owning a mixed instead of a purebred dog. Dont let mans best friend be let down by a system that kills because there is no room.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynSince 2008, Kurt Roper helped churn out four 1,000-yard pass catchers, two All-ACC wide receivers and three players topping Dukes all-time career receptions list. Coach Will Muschamp said theres no such thing as an add water, instant player, but if Roper can at least plant the seed of productivity in the Gators receiving corps like he did with the Blue Devils, Florida fans could see some life from a position that hasnt In UFs pro-style offense under Muschamp, no receiver has recorded more than 600 yards in a single season. But Floridas receiving problems go back beyond Muschamp. Under Urban Meyer, only Riley Cooper came close to a 1,000-yard season when he caught 51 passes for 961 yards in 2009. yard pass catcher, you have to go back to the Rex Grossman and Ron Zook era. In 2002, Taylor Jacobs needed a 95-yard performance against Florida State in order to earn exactly 1,000 yards on the year. Before Jacobs, Florida boasted at least one 1,000-yard receiver every year since 1995. So why is it that the Gators have struggled at the wide receiver position since then? There is no one reason, but the biggest is that Florida consistently uses the ground attack more than the passing game. The last time UF had more passing attempts than rushing attempts was 2002. Second, the Gators have missed out on the nations top receiving talent in recent years. Javares McRoy and JaJuan Story were each four-star recruits in Muschamps transferred before playing a single snap for Florida. Latroy Pittman, Jr. and Raphael Andrades, each members of Muschamps 2012 recruiting class, were four and three-star players in high school, respectively. In their duo has combined for just six receptions. But with Roper installing a spread offense for 2014, the receiving corps should have more open should have more time to get his targets the ball. The great thing, weve got a lot of competition at the (wide receiver) position, so its going to make those guys work harder, Muschamp said. I think they have done a great job with Jeff (Driskel) and our quarterbacks this summer. Im excited to see those guys go out and compete. I certainly feel like we have improved ourselves at that position. Andre Debose is returning to the lineup after sitting out last year due to a torn ACL Now entering his sixth season at UF, Debose has one last chance to prove his worth dent that Ropers system is the one that will put him and the Gators over the top.

The Gators were coming off of an 11-2, Sugar Bowl berth year. They entered the year as one of the favorites to win the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division and were even considered by many as a dark horse national championship pick. Fast forward just one year and the Gators are coming off of an injury-plagued 4-8 seaing season since 1979. Still at the helm in Gainesville is Will Muschamp, who heads into the year sitting on one of the hottest seats in the country. Rather than shy away from it, Muschamp embraces the role wholeheartedly. To stick your head in the sand and pretend it was all injuries, thats not right. You will fool yourself if you believe that, Muschamp said. Were getting ready to get started with the 2014 Florida football team. Its been a busy offseason for UF, one that includes the hiring of offensive coordinator Kurt Roper from Duke as well as new offensive line coach Mike Summers. There was also the resignation of wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Muschamp remains despite ugly 2013F OOTBALL RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator Staff Writer@RagjUFInjuries, players lined up in unfamiliar positions, a mountainsized tackle and a performance so poor it was replayed over and over again on Michael Sams draft highlight tape. All are unfortunate parts of Floridas 2013 season, The offensive lineman is one of the most unique positions in all of organized sports. No position group is as much of a determiner of offensive success without ever touching the ball in fact there are rules expressly preventing them from touching the ball best, the offensive line under Will Muschamp is the sloberknocking group that bludgeoned LSU and Florida State late in crucial 2012 victories. At its worst, UFs line acts like a revolving door allowing Missouri to rack up six sacks en route to a 36-17 loss. Former center Jonotthan Harrison started every game last season one of two UF offensive linemen to do so. In his place at the center position steps Max Garcia. The redshirt senior from Norcross, Ga. started seven games at Hes the man tapped to replace Harrison, a bastion of consistency who had started 25 straight times at the position dating back to 2012. I wish I would have known I would have been playing center you know after he was gone. I would have paid attention a lot more, Garcia said in jest. He was always a hard worker, he was always just really locked in and focused. You could really always tell in his face, in his demeanor and the way he approached practice.Summers breeze hopes to renew Florida O-lineSEE O-LINE, PA GE 15 SEE MUSCHAMP PA GE 15
