Wage raise impacts UF
By CRISTYLE WOOD
Many UF department heads
charged with managing their
budgets have been scrambling
since an initiative to increase
Florida's minimum wage went
into effect last month, allot-
ting more than 4,500 student
employees as much as a dollar
more per hour.
"Every department man-
ages their own budget, so they
will work out any changes,"
UF Vice President for Finance
and Administration Ed Poppell
Only employees hired
through Other Personnel
Services are affected, since the
minimum wage for full-time
UF employees is $8.50 per hour,
which is more than $2 above
the new state standard, Poppell
The Other Personnel Services
program, which is funded by
the state and provides on-cam-
pus jobs for students enrolled
at least part-time at UF, in-
creased its wages from $5.15
to $6.15 after the constitutional
amendment to create a Florida
minimum wage passed on the
The measure received more
than 70-percent voter support.
While some may think local
businesses and UF have been
affected negatively by the mini-
mum-wage increase, the gen-
eral consensus among student
workers is positive.
"It's nice to have more
money," said Molly McKinney,
a building supervisor at
Southwest Recreation Center,
whose hourly wage was $5.35
before the increase.

UF golfer makes
cut for U.S. Open
* EVERY QUALIFIED ON
THE FIFTH PLAYOFF HOLE.
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
After finishing in a tie for
85th at the NCAA champion-
ships one of the worst per-
formances in his otherwise
illustrious college career Matt
Every responded the only way
he knows how.
The UF junior surprisingly
qualified for the U.S. Open,
earning a spot on a fifth play-
off hole after a two-round total
of a .7-under 135 in the sec-
tional qualifiers at Woodmont
Country Club in Rockville,
"I can talk myself out of
slumps," Every said of his per-
formance in the NCAA cham-
pionship. "I just told myself
it was a fluke and I came out
firing in the qualifier."
It wasn't easy. Without
the luxury of a course-leader
board, Every thought he had
it won when he birdied the
18th hole. He soon learned he
would be in a playoff for five
spots with eight others, includ-
ing six PGA Tour veterans.

UF officials might
pull Growl funding
Bill could die on VP's desk
By DAVID COHEN
Gator Growl soon may hush to a whimper after Student
Government officials reported that.UF administrators could veto an
appropriation to fund the event as early as today.
A bill passed in the Student Senate two weeks ago allocating
$340,000 of student money to help fund the Florida Blue Key-run
Gator Growl is allegedly being questioned by Vice President for
Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, who oversees SG decisions.
"A responsible review has been already
U17 underway, as I am looking at this issue very
Administration carefully," Telles-Irvin wrote in an e-mail.
"Please rest assured that due diligence is be-
ing followed and that we are working very hard to make sure that the
best interests of the student body are kept at the forefront. [UF] will
not take any course of action that is illegal in this issue."
Telles-Irvin declined comment to the Alligator on Wednesday.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said he signed the bill and
it now sits in Telles-Irvin's office, adding she questioned the bill's
logistics and how SG reserves work.

Alumnus honors roots
By MELISSA FILIPKOWSKI
Alligator Contributing Writer
It seems teaching the principles of assets
and liabilities has turned out to be a huge as-
set to UF a $1.4 million asset, to be exact.
UF accounting alumnus Bernard H.
Berkman has pledged to donate $1.4 million
to UF's Fisher School of Accounting to es-
tablish the Bernard H. Berkman Accounting
Enrichment Fund. Income generated from
the fund will support teaching, research and
programs within the school.
"Any success I have attained in my
professional career I attribute to the educa-
tion I received at the University of Florida,"
Berkman said in a press release.
"Supporting UF's accounting program is
just one way I felt I could express my appre-
ciation and help provide for students follow-
ing the same path I followed in my career."
Berkman, a 1960 graduate of the
Warrington College of Business, had more
than 35 years in the accounting field with
companies such as Deloitte & Touche and
Collective Bancorp before retiring in 1999.
Berkman's orange-and-blue roots
have been strong throughout his career.
He is a charter member of the UF Alumni
Association and co-founded the Nassau
County Gator Club in 2004, which is now
174 members strong.
Administrators in the accounting school
said they are pleased with the donation
and are planning to use the money to make
improvements to UF's already prestigious
"Mr. Berkman's gift will provide criti-
cal resources for the school as it strives for
programmatic excellence," said Joel S.
Demski, associate dean of
On the Warrington College of
Campus Business and director of the
Campus Fisher School, in a press re-
lease. "Affirmations, such as
Mr. Berkman's, are what sustain the school,
the college and the university in its commit-
ment to academic leadership and its role as
the state's flagship university."
UF accounting junior Mike Fera agrees
with Demski and believes the gift will fur-
ther aid UF's accounting program.
"The accounting school has made smart
decisions with previous monetary donations
in the past," Fera said, referring to the newly
constructed accounting building, Gerson
Hall. "I believe the money will only help UF
students excel in the accounting classrooms,
as well as help UF students make a positive
mark in the accounting workplace."
UF earns literacy grant
By DAN ONEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF's Lastinger Center for Learning is
among 21 Florida organizations slated
to share a $700,000 grant for literacy
Gov. Jeb Bush announced this week
in a press conference that the Lastinger
Center will play a central role in his
Family Literacy Initiative.
"[Increasing literacy] is the' key to
opening the doors of opportunity and
success in life," Bush said.
Created in 2001, the Lastinger
Center, which is part of the College of
Education, is a school-improvement
partner working with 14 high-poverty
elementary schools across Florida.
UF professors will use the grant to
"embed" themselves at "practice sites"
in Apopka and Immokalee and deter-
mine which. teaching methods are most
Since the governor began his Family
Literacy Initiative in 1999, more than
9,000 adults and children have gradu-
ated from its 115 centers throughout the
state, according to a report released this
A key part of
Bush's literacy initia-
tive is the traditional
focus of the center on
involving the family
in the child's learning
experience, said Don
Bush tor of the Lastinger
"We want to make literacy a family
value in their communities," he said.
-According to Program Director
Alyson Adams, UF was awarded the
grant because of the collaboration it
breeds among teachers and learning.
"Once we figure out what those two
sites are doing to make them so success-
ful, then we will convert it into a cur-
riculum," Adams said.

UF-built robot car to race
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
A car built by UF students will race some
of the toughest and most expensive vehicles
in the country with no one sitting behind
The robotic vehicle known as NaviGATOR
was one of 40 semifinalists picked Monday
to go to California in September to compete
against other robotic vehicles with hopes
of earning a spot in the finals and a chance
to compete for a $2 million purse in the
Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research
Project Agency Grand Challenge 2005.
The race, hosted by the Pentagon to pro-
mote research in autonomous vehicle tech-
nology, tests applications that can be used by
the military, like surveying a battlefield.
"We're happy and we're thrilled to be in,"
said Dave Armstrong, project manager for
the team from the UF Center for Intelligent
Machines and Robotics that built the car.
"At the same time, we realize we're going
to spend the next four months killing our-
selves," he added.
About 13 of the 15 members of the racing
team are students, Armstrong said.
The 40 semifinalists will battle for 20 spots
in an October race, where robotic vehicles
travel 150 miles across desert roads without
any human intervention and using only on-
"Once the race starts, [the robotic vehicle
is] completely on its own," Armstrong said.
"We could go to lunch and watch it on TV."
What drives the NaviGATOR is a com-
bination of 13 high-speed computers, eight
sensor systems, at least one of three $50,000
global positioning systems and a device that
fuses all the information toitell the car where
and where not to go.
It also has a 150-horsepower Honda en-
gine that enables it to reach speeds as high
as 50 mph.
Despite the top-notch equipment, which
totals about $250,000 plus labor, Armstrong
said the car, working at full capacity, would
still only have the brainpower of.a mouse.
"It can't drive anything close to a hu-
man," he said. "Getting a machine to think
and recognize obstacles is going to be a very
"Once the race starts, [the ro-
botic vehicle is] completely on its
Team ClMAR project manager
Team member Danny Kent, a mechanical
engineering graduate student, said he and
the other team members have worked seven
days a week in preparation for the event.
"Some people I don't think quite grasp
just how hard it is," he said. "Trying to take
luck out of the equation is really hard."
Once the race starts, the NaviGATOR's
positioning system will be able to tell it
exactly where it is within 10 cm, compared
to a distance of 3 meters for most consumer
"Our [positioning system] is better than
what.you would typically use," Armstrong
said, adding that the added accuracy could
mean the difference between staying on the
road and falling off a rocky cliff.

Minor adjustments based on participation levels,have been
made to recreational programs to finish out the fiscal year,
which ends June 30, he said.
"I don't want this to have an impact on the services we pro-
vide for students," he said.
But Stefanie Simon, recreational program assis-
Student tant, said services already have been impacted.
Life Student Recreational Facilities hired a full staff
at the beginning of the Summer but must now
reduce shifts in an attempt to retain employees, according to
Simon, a third-year exercise and sports science major.
Meanwhile, McKinney said that while she enjoys her
raise, she has noticed that the number of student workers at
Southwest Recreation Center has been reduced.
"I know they've cut a lot of shifts because the Student Rec
Center used to have two building supervisors and a floor man-
ager each shift and now only has one of each," she said.

SG leaders say Growl may disappoint without SG funds; others question legality
GROWL, from page 1
"I was under the ,impression that Gator
Growl needed this money to make the show
happen," he said. "The reason that I was
satisfied with the bill is because we were giv-
ing students the opportunity to attend Gator
Growl for free."
Senate President Pro Tempore John Boyles
said that about 45 minutes before the bill's sec-
ond reading May 24, members of the executive
cabinet and Senate received word that Telles-
Irvin would veto SG's proposal to bring free
Growl tickets to .24,000 students.
"The message came ... that if we passed the
bill, she wasn't going to sign it," he said. "If there
is a decision to veto the bill, this would be the
first time possibly ever that this has been done."
But he said leaders did not want to tell
student senators about the bill because Telles-
Irvin's message did not come first-hand.
"I think that the reason
I behind not making a big
deal about it is because
I none of us directly talked
to [Telles-Irvin]," he said.
'It was a pretty intense
message. We wouldn't
want to paint a picture of
Telles-Irvin her in a bad light."
Goldberg said he sup-
ports keeping the bill on the agenda.
"We don't do things for the administration;
we do things for the students," he said. "I ap-
plaud the Senate leaders for keeping the bill
on the agenda. That was just too late. We can't
be called at the last minute and expect to stop
all our business."
Sources close to the Senate said they were
shocked to hear they were not told about the
message before it was debated.
However, others outside SG agree that ve-
toing the bill is the right move.
"If the university allows this misuse of the
A&S Fee, I am determined to seek legal ac-
tion from the courts to prevent that misuse of
funds," UF teaching assistant Charles Grapski
said. "I'm hoping that she will take proper ac-
tion. I think the issue is crystal clear: If students
have to pay for a ticket, and [SG is] subsidizing
it, [students] are paying twice."
Grapski said he is concerned that UF ad-
ministration could use a "semantic loophole
in a bureaucratic way to take an illegal act and
make it appear legal" by stating SG will fund
Homecoming 2005, not FBK or Growl.
Boyles said if the bill is vetoed, this year's
Growl may be a disappointment.
"It won't be at the same level that the stu-
dents and the alumni are used to," he said.
Growl Producer Robert Carmody said he
doesn't "want to think about the what-ifs yet."
Boyles added that the technical aspects of
the show would not be up to par, and fire-
works would be a memory.
"I would hope that if the vice president
decides to veto the bill that she comes to
the Senate and explains why," he said. "I
would hope that there wouldn't be any

One could say the smooth operators at the Department of

is why we now all have head colds.
Our illness might be the logical result of too many late
nights spent outside along University Avenue in the rain. But
we think it has more to do with the twists our necks have
taken in the last week from repetitive double-take action.
It's almost as if the controversy gods have heeded
our call and added some spice back into the normally
doldrumatic Summer A. Not that we can taste anything.
But since we wrote this while attempting to stamp out a per-
vasive throb in our skulls, our choice of gifts this week was a

from diving.into the wackiness with this week's edition of...
Darts & Laurels
For our first award, we go directly to the ivory (well, red-
brick) towers of Tigert Hall and deliver a thank-you-for-end-
ing-the-madness LAUREL to UF President Bernie Machen,
who named a new provost last week after more than a year
Machen sent the search committee back to the drawing
board after he didn't see enough promise in their initial rec-
ommendations. We applaud his courage in waiting until he
could be comfortable with his choice.
In that spirit, we adorn a do-you-really-know-what-
you're-getting-into LAUREL onto the pressured shoulders
of new Provost Janie Fouke.
Fouke undoubtedly will be in a constant state of transition
for the next two months, as she must move from Michigan to
Gainesville and have her agenda ready to go by Aug. 15.
Good luck, Dr. Fouke. We hope this LAUREL is the first
Turning now to the Reitz Union, we dish out a ive-can-
be-on-the-same-side-sometimes LAUREL to Student Body
President Joe Goldberg, for standing his ground in the face
of administrative pressure.
That's right, a LAUREL for Joe Goldberg.
Allegedly, Goldberg heard from UF officials that if he
signed a bill paying $340,000 to Florida Blue Key for Gator
Growl, it would be vetoed. He signed it anyway.
We don't agree with the content of the bill, and this is not
any change of heart on our part. But if administrators are
going to monkey with student money -m which is by Florida
law under student control they should be out in the open
We're too sick to leave campus, so we muster all our
strength to throw a what-part-of-public-records-don't-you-

A too-liberal usage of a black marker by the Dean's Office
left an entire e-mail blacked out of a public-records request.
There's no way every word and symbol could have been ex-
empt from the public-records laws.

a UF official and former Student Body Vice President
Jennifer Puckett, and we can't prove the discussion in-

The appearance of impropriety leaves us shaking our heads.
It was a move both ballsy and illegal. But mainly, illegal.

Letters to the Editor
Story on collision contains bad reporting
Editor. I'd like to reference your newspaper
dated June 2 and the front-page article "Crash
on Southwest 34th Street..."
My daughter, Sandy D'Elosua, was in that
car accident, and your newspaper sensational-
ized the story so that she appeared at fault.
If your reporters had thoroughly investi-
gated the situation, they would have known
that the driver of the other car, a young 21-
year-old man, was cited by the police officer
and that Sandy was not at fault.
She was the victim, however, who received
major injuries that required surgery and will
require extensive rehabilitation.
Your article was very harmful to her per-'
sonal reputation and her mental state during
this traumatic time. It is simply an example of
sensationalism at its worst.
I would like to see a follow-up article that
gives the truth to the accident and doesn't
paint my daughter in a negative light.
The young man who is responsible for the
accident has done enough damage.
Stem-cell research debate more complex
Editor: While it pleases me to note the
discussion of stem-cell research in Tuesday's
column, I fear Mr. Blye has omitted a fact- or
two in attempting to make his point.
The restriction in federal policy applies
only to funding new stem cell lines. There is
little to stop a major pharmaceutical company
from using donor embryos to manufacture
-new lines and conduct research so long as the
funding comes purely from private sources.
These companies, however, are. not
attempting this and with good reason.
Embryonic stem cells just are not showing the
type of promise that justifies private funding.
Why should the government finance it?
That's just bad business, whatever your
:view of its morality.

Tough-love grading crucial to success
Editor: I just finished reading the article by
Matt Sanchez regarding removing grades in
Palm Beach elementary schools. I have to say
this is quite possibly the best article I've ever
read in the Alligator.
I couldn't agree more with what Mr.
Sanchez had to say: Our country is accepting
mediocrity, and we're paying for it. Everyone
is too scared to hurt someone's feelings or re-_
warda person over another.
It all began with removing dodgeball from
Now, as silly as it may seem, think about it:
The kid who kids picked last, knocked out first
and mocked in elementary school that's the
kid who goes to Harvard just to show the bul-
lies who's better now.
Then the "bullies" open their own business
to show they don't need college to be better.
See, this "one-upping" one another is what
our whole country is based on. If you want to
make sure that everyone is treated equally,
why don't we just give equal portions of in-
come to everyone?
Oh wait, that's Communism, and we see
how well tl.It', url,.-d )ut.
We're raising-a bunch of kids who are go-
ing to grow up expecting to be equal with ev-
eryone else when in reality, they're the furthest
thing from it.
So, stop giving trophies to all teams, bring
back dodgeball and grab your red pens; I want
my kid to know he's either better or worse.

Scientists get grant for Parkinson's
By MELISSA GARCIA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Judy Whitmore was diagnosed with
Parkinson's disease at the age of 54.
Six years later, she can still make par on
the golf course.
Whitmore is one of hundreds with
Parkinson's disease who have benefited
from participating in therapy and clini-
cal research at UF's Movement Disorders
Center and the McKnight Brain Institute.
Dawn Bowers, director of the institute's
Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, will
begin a new study on Parkinson's disease
in July after receiving a $1.7 million grant
from the National Institutes of Health's-
National Institute of Neurological
Disorders and Stroke.
Parkinson's disease is a disorder
caused by the degeneration of neurons in
parts of the brain integral to making dopa-
mine, a neurotransmitter.
More than 1.5 million Americans have
Parkinson's disease and experience a
variety of symptoms, including tremors,
slowed movement, poor balance and
slow speech, according to the National
Parkinson Foundation Web site.
Bowers' research grant will fund a
four-year study on a common side effect
of Parkinson's disease that hinders the
ability to produce facial expressions.
While most researchers have to apply
for grants two or three times before being
funded, her application for the grant was
accepted in'July 2004 on its first submis-
sion, she said.
"It was the right study at the right
review session with the right reviewers
who liked it," she said. "It could have just
as easily gone the other way. A lot of it is
Bowers' research team includes
Michael Okun and Hubert Fernandez,
,both associate professors of neurology,
and Christine Sapienza, professor and
associate chair of the department of com-
munication sciences and disorders.
Testing a group of 100 people with the
disease, the team will use video clips to
elicit expressions and record them.
"It used to be that people
thought heroes rode on white
horses. But for those of us with
Parkinson's disease, they may
be people with a white coat."
Parkinson's support group leader
Some of the video clips include bug-
eating scenes from "Fear Factor,", the
"brain-eating" scene from "Hannibal"
and scenes from "America's Funniest
Home Videos," Bowers said.
By subtracting each 30-millisecond
video frame, the researchers can measure
exactly how much movement occurred on
the face, she said.
In a previous study used to develop
this measurement method, a woman with
Parkinson's disease asked to see what she
looked like on her videotape.
"We showed her the videotape, and
she -burst into tears," Bowers said. "She
said she had no idea that she looked so
flat. She remembered herself as someone
who was much more emotive."
Lack of facial expression affects the
way spouses, family members and even
healthcare providers interact with people
with Parkinson's disease, she said. -
Patients are sometimes misdiagnosed
with depression or apathy due to the
problem, she said.
With her research, she hopes to develop
a convenient and affordable treatment for
those who are frustrated by the symptoms
of the disease, she said.
Participants will receive a breathing
device that requires them to blow out with
more force, working both facial and respi-
ratory muscles, Bowers said.
They will exercise with the device at
home five times per day for four weeks
and then return to the lab to have their fa-
cial expressions measured again, she said.
Bowers expects the breathing therapy
to make facial muscles more active and
able to be more expressive, she said.
"I suspect this is going to work," she
said. "It's just like going to the gym helps
people tone up."
To see if the benefits of breathing ther-
apy are temporary, patients will be asked
to stop using the breathing device for
three months and then be tested for any
loss of facial expression ability, she said.
Test subjects will be studied both on
and off dopamine medication and also
participate in conversations and struc-
tured interviews to check for improve-
ments in speech and vocalization.
Judy Whitmore, leader of a
Parkinson's support group, said she
and her group have a strong interest in
"It used-to be that people thought he-
roes rode on white horses," she said. "But
for those of us with Parkinson's disease,
they may be people with a white coat."
With the help of doctors, medical re-
search and exercise therapy, Whitmore
said several members of her group who
used to be confined to wheelchairs now
are walking with canes.

"Spanish Fly: Live in Spain" is a pseudo-greatest hits
DVD featuring a live concert of Reed at the Benicassim

ings of "Ole Ole Ole" at the conclusion of the concert is the
only reminder of the locale.

Reed, though, is the deserving star.
Amazingly (well, not considering the virgins thing),
he has held up exceedingly well for a man of his rocking

handling his existential narratives with ease. His lead guitar
is solid, and he pieces together a couple of impressionistic
Most interesting is the enthusiasm he puts into each

Something, though, must be mentioned, for it is painfully
missing from his performance: mystique.
I had to sit there for a while before I picked up on it. As I
watched this giddy old man playing his guitar in a rockin'
band in black sweat pants (yes), it came to me. The bright
lights and overhead camera shots allow the viewer to see
tape markings on the floor, cameramen going in for close-

Reed's songs reflect a dark narrator in an urban land-

Oral proves just as
sinful as intercourse
Our American democracy values the individual
and the individual voice. However, differentiat-
ing intercourse and oral sex remains a topic that
divides our nation.
When it comes to oral versus intercourse, everyone has
his or her own opinion and standard to answer the who,
what, where, when and why.
So, in the interest of hearing the voice of the people, I
began polling my friends' opinions. When asked if oral sex
constitutes cheating, all responded with a yes, adding that
oral was equally unforgivable as intercourse.
Answering the question asked by the Clinton adminis-
tration, "Is oral-sex sex?" the nation, or at least my random
sampling, says yes.
However, intimacy is where the issue begins to stir
conflict. Half of my constituency votes oral sex as more
intercourse. I call

consider oral more
of the mechanics, the sensations and the vulnerability in-
volved. Pro-heads have refined taste and are picky about
what they put in their mouths.
On the other side, the Pro-tails typically evaluate inti-
macy on an emotional level. They all reference intercourse
as aiding a stronger personal connection with their partner,
which makes it more intimate. One Pro-tail, in defense of
his choice, went so far as to say, "oral sex is like a hand-
I personally stand on the Pro-tail side for very pragmat-
ic reasons. For gay men, intercourse has a much higher risk
factor for diseases, so I do it less and am more discriminat-
ing in my choice of partners.
Taking my own opinion into consideration, I began to
see the many facets of the great Oral v. Intercourse debate.
Frequency also plays a part, as many straight guys go
Pro-head due to the number of women who don't like to
perform oral sex. For them, it's a special treat.
Another caucus to consider is the Pro-tail women who
give and receive oral sex exclusively so they can maintain
Finally, a friend who enjoys being dominated by her
boyfriend presented an additional opinion. She considered
intercourse less meaningful because of the mutual pleasure
involved. As oral sex requires one person to serve the other,
she enjoys it more mand considers it a greater sacrifice.
So as with all conflicts, American pluralism prevents a
singular opinion. Thankfully, finding people interested in
sharing their opinions isn't hard.

Finch morphs genres
Say Hello to Sunshine
Release date: June 7
Finch's new album, "Say Hello to
Sunshine," exaggerates what "What it
is to Burn" only hinted
at this screamo band
has only begun to make
What is so great
about this album is that
not every song sounds
Its sound is reaching into other
genres of music for a concoction that is
For instance, the album has more of
a heavy-metal guitar sound, and singer
Nate Barcalow uses his voice differently
to complement that.
This CD gives me the feeling that
Finch channeled Incubus, pre- "Make
Yourself," as a major influence. Or
maybe it was Glassjaw. Yes, definitely
Perhaps as foreshadowed, Glassjaw
singer Daryl Palumbo was featured on
the "What it is to Burn" CD.
With the time changes and breaks
in the songs, "Say Hello to Sunshine"
definitely fulfills the need for a break
from the mainstream pop-punk that is
prevalent in music stores today.
But be .warned -
don't buy the CD with
Amanda hopes that it is their
Seyfang previous album recre-
Playlist ated. This CD is not
firstname.lastname@example.org "What it is to Burn."
Let me repeat that
this CD is not "What
it is to Burn."
This CD is heavier and less emo than
their sophomore release.
Since I cannot support illegal down-
loading, my suggestion is to go out
and buy Finch's new CD, "Say Hello to
If you decide against buying it,

Faux fashion trends unify a style-seeking world
Is fake couture a symbol of faux status?
In the old world of fashion, the likely
answer was yes. The dividing line between
the haves and have-nots was who could afford
Well, in the new world of fashion the an-
*swer is not so clear, because almost everyone
is sporting some kind of high style. Of course
it's all original, right?
If that's what you think, it seems you have
been foiled, my friend.
The market for designer knockoffs is quite
lucrative society flocks to copycats, individ-
uals who harness their talent, creative thinking
and elbow grease to bring to the masses the
finest of haute-replicas.
And the paragon for imitation is the reign-
ing king, Louis Vuitton.
Take a look around if you haven't noticed.
You'll eventually see people of all genders,
sizes and ethnicity adorned with the illustri-
ous "LV" monogram and flower logo.
Louis Vuitton is so popular that it's practi-
cally a household name.
My original intent was to blast those that
conform to this craze because I thought the
motif overplayed, thus
resulting in a society of -
clones. But one day after *
yoga class, I had an epiph-
any. I began to hear in my
head Madonna singing,
"Music makes the people
Well, my friends, it
seems fashion, too, makes the people come
And for that we must all hail Louis!
Designer couture used to be the signature
of the privileged class but thanks to faux
fashion, it's available to everyone. The Louis
Vuitton emblem adorns everyone from the
CEO, to the cashier, to the garbage man. No
matter who is carrying or wearing it, the social
hierarchy appears to diminish. Fashion is for
Not everyone can afford a $1,000 bag or
a $300 wallet, so people
like me do what we can
Christine and purchase the next best
Steffens thing. Yes, I admit it, I own
Fashion a Go-Go two faux handbags from
firstname.lastname@example.org the pseudo-house of Louis
Vuitton, and I am no less
tasteful because of it.
We should all feel like
kings and queens, deserving of the finer things
in life, and there should be no reason why we
can't. So your Fashion-a-Go-Go says no, fake
couture is not a symbol of faux status.
There are also cases where people tend to
take faux a little too far.
Recently I was in St. Augustine and saw
a guy driving a sport utility vehicle com-
pletely stenciled with the Louis Vuitton logo. I
stopped and stared, for I was mesmerized.
Not only was it beyond tacky, but I won-
dered why his friends didn't tell him that it
was a bad idea.
But I salute you, Mr. SUV man, for taking
your creative liberty. Though you revealed
that you're style-challenged and your friends
deserted you in a time of need, you probably
feel pretty cool driving around. Kudos to you!
Don't get me wrong, I would love to own
real designer couture. High style doesn't nec-
essarily have to be a status symbol, but can
represent hard work.
So many facets of life are committed to
maintaining a social hierarchy, we shouldn't
let fashion do that, too.
Remember in order to have class, one
doesn't need to come from 'the privileged
Re-made summer movies makes for boring season
This summer is defi-
nitely going to be a record-
breaking movie season a record-
breaking season of unoriginality.
We hear great things about block-
buster movies intended to give us
"edge of your seat thrills," but'-I'm
not feeling it this season.'
Most of the movies in the sum-
mer buffet of cinema have already
been done, are based on a television
show or book or are based on true
On top of that, it seems that
movie studios are making sure they
can appeal to a wider audience by
keeping movies within the PG-13
Where are the original scripts
and bigrisks for the screen?
The downfall of originality
starts just after "The Longest Yard"
- which was already done success-
fully in the '70s with "Sisterhood
of the Traveling Pants," "Lords of
Dogtown" and "Cinderella Man."
Two are based on actual events,
one is based on a successful teenage
book and they are all rated PG -13
or lower. These movies are safe and
will most likely bring in average to
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" then rolls
along in true adulterous fashion
and pretty much gives us what
1994's "True Lies" couldn't two
ridiculously hot stars who actually
have believable chemistry. Plus, it's
wave of washed-
up ideas will
soon hit audi-
ences head on.
We have "Batman
Begins," "Herbie: Fully Loaded,"
"Bewitched" and "War of the
All right, even though "Batman"
and "Worlds" have the potential to
be awesome, everything has already
been done. This is the fifth "Batman"
movie, a Love Bug that we've seen
since the '60s, a series that probably
still has 2 a.m. marathons on the TV
The Reel Life :
and an already
epic novel. While
the rating of
"Worlds" is still
the others are PG-
13. I1 don't think it's a coincidence.
We'll round out the season with
an array of "already-been-theres."
"Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory," "The Honeymooners,"
"The Pink Panther," "The Dukes of
Hazzard" and by far the worst deci-
sion ever made by Sony Pictures -
"Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo."
Two of these have been TV shows,
two have already been movies and
one is the sequel of a mistaken first
movie enough said. All will most
likely be rated PG-13 or under, too.
The trend seems to be that when
things get rough at the box office, the
studios ride on the safety of things
that have already been successful.
While we'll still get some good
movies, most of these will only be
the middle DVD in a box set. How

No/es win season series; Gators 'comfortable', prepared for Noles, Omaha
BASEBALL, from page 23
Corsaletti, usually one to make bold predic-
tions, showed an unusually calm and seri-
ous demeanor when talking about his final
series in a Gator uniform
"We are fired up about this weekend,"
Corsaletti said. "We've got a lot of guys that
believe we can win."
Corsaletti expects McKethan Stadium to
reach a new attendance record because of
the intense in-state rivalry.
"If we win this weekend, it will be pan-
demonium," Corsaletti said. "They aren't
going to be easy games, they will be close. I
promise you that."
Corsaletti was chosen in the 2004 MLB
draft, but opted to remain at UF for a final
"I look like a genius for coming back for
my senior year," Corsaletti said. "I feel like
a genius too, I got drafted 16 rounds higher
and earned a ring for winning the conference
championship. Now we're two wins from
Seminoles win series
Tenth-ranked FSU defeated the Gators
(43-20) twice in three games this season.
Each game was played on a weekday, not
part of a three-game weekend series. UF
did not use any of its top starting pitchers,
a move that could yield high dividends this
"They haven't seen our best," Corsaletti
said. "We're extremely comfortable. We
have a whole arsenal. We put ourselves in
position to win, you just have to go out and
play hard. You can't ask for anything else,
you just have to go out and execute. As a
team, we're as close as we've ever been. It's
going to be exciting."
Team unity prevails
Falkenbach explained that the 2005 base-
ball team is as tightly knit as any he's ever
"We're.all equals, nobody thinks he's a big
shot out there," Falkenbach said. "We're all
about the team, we're not about individual
stuff. I think that's made us come so much
closer as a team and help build chemistry.
We're all here to do the same thing: get to
Falkenbach has been the anchor of the
pitching staff all season, recording eight
saves and pitching in a team-high 46 games.
"We have a lot of depth," Falkenbach
said. We can throw anybody out there at any
time and be successful. J think that's what
has gotten us so far."
Corsaletti said that for the four seniors on
the team and UF coach Pat McMahon all
of whom began at UF in 2002 the weekend
Super Regional is a special opportunity to
"I wouldn't be satisfied if we don't go to
Omaha. That's been my dream since I came
to college," Corsaletti said. "I came to college
because I wanted to go to Omaha. If we don't
go there, it's going to be disappointing."
A pair of standout sophomores could
provide their team with an offensive spark.
FSU (53-18) is led by sophomore center
fielder Shane Robinson, who was chosen as
Collegiate Baseball's National Player of the
Year. Robinson had a 40-game hitting streak
earlier in the season.
CONTROL, from page 23
Take, for instance, the addition of FieldTurf,
a state-of-the-art realistic grass substitute, that
will be added to the main practice field.
With FieldTurf, the field will drain quicker
after those mid-afternoon Florida storms.
But if you're attending two-a-day practices
in August, don't expect to stare in awe at the
super grass. Meyer has moved two-a-days
to the University Village South Field, so the
practice field will remain fresh for the season.
Say it with me again efficiency.
Efficiency and sports success have always
gone hand-in-hand. Just ask the 'Detroit
Pistons, New England Patriots, or even the
In '66, UF kidney specialist Robert Cade
helped the football team solve its hydration
'-problem by inventing a new miracle drink,
known today as Gatorade.
The Gators finished 9-2 that season and
won the Orange Bowl.
It's not always the X's and O's that lead
to wins. Since Meyer can't preach strategy
for a couple of months, making UF football
efficient is the logical approach.
So while Meyer continues to re-evaluate
the program from all angles, he can only play
the waiting game and hope his players live up
to their end of the bargain.
