UF officials, SG
Editor's note: This is the last in a series of stories tak-
ing a closer.look at the hidden structures of Student
By DAVID COHEN
Student Government is full of it.
It's full of $11 million of student money, to be exact. Officials in
SG and the UF administration say they agree the power over that
money isn't leaving students' hands.
The newest jewel in the crown of UF's top brass, Vice President
for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, shocked SG officials when
she instituted what many SG members have called the "first ad-
ministrative veto in SG history."
It's actually the second in as many years, according to Student
Affairs officials, but her June veto of $200,000 of student money
allocated for Gator Growl caused some student
leaders to rethink their strategies.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said
the veto was not welcome
"(That was a) new thing for SG itself, some-
thing we are not used to," he said.
Senate President Diane Kassim said her sur-
prise at the decision led her to devote significant
Goldberg concern to notions of student authority.
UF student body "The [veto is] d involved as you can possi-
president bly get," she said. "We don't expect it to happen
Telles-Irvin said despite numerous e-mails from students prais-
ing or condemning the veto, she stands behind her decision.
"People are going to have different reactions," she said. "[SG
officials] have learned that in their own roles."
"I will challenge them, and they will challenge me. My role.is
certainly to be part of their education."
UF President Bernie Machen has veto power over allocation
of money by the Student Senate. Historically, presidents have
delegated the responsibility to those in Telles-Irvin's position, and
circumstances were no different when she arrived last October.
Goldberg said control of the Activity & Service Fee, paid by ev-
ery student as part of each credit hour, is essential for SG success.

Tuition rises for new students
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Being new to UF will be slightly more expensive
in the Fall due to tuition-criteria changes based on a
student's status as "new" or "continuing" that now
factor into determining how much he or she pays.
Students already pay different tuition rates as
undergraduates and graduates .as well as Florida
residents versus out-of-state students, but their time
- or lack thereof spent at UF now will factor into
the equation as well.
"This is a first time ever," said Stuart Hoskins,
senior associate controller at UF.
He said officials at the Office of the University
Registrar and the Office of the Provost largely were
behind the changes.
Neither office returned calls for comment

Senate votes to allow secured-site online voting
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
A change in Student Body statutes to allow
for "secured-site" online voting passed first
reading in the Student Senate on Tuesday as
many observers felt that, if not the ultimate goal,
the system was a step in the right direction.
The secured-site system, as named by the
speaks at the
Senate's online-voting committee, would
make every polling location on campus open
to every student. The measure also explic-
itly banned "unsecured-site" Internet voting,
which would allow students to vote from any
computer using their GatorLink accounts.
The secured-site system, passed by the
Senate 60-2, will save approximately $30,000

line" voting has been implemented will expect
their home computers to -

it will be deceptive, that
there will be unhappy students," she said.
Kassim said she plans to form a new com-

Panhellenic rush nears
Recruitment week is drawing
closer for UF women looking to
join one of Panhellenic Council's 16
sororities this Fall.
Panhellenic recruitment begins
with an orientation at 5 p.m. in the
Reitz Union on Aug. 16, followed by
a week of four rounds of "parties."
The "parties" are meet-and-greets
between potential and current soror-
ity members at the chapter houses.
Panhellenic Membership Vice
President Courtney Weir said she
expects 1,300-1,400 students to reg-
ister for recruitment and about 1,200
to go through round one.
Weir said students are encour-
aged to submit applications,- avail-
able at the Panhellenic Web site, and
application fee of $70 as soon as pos-
sible. The fee rises to $85 after Aug. 7
and $100 if paid at orientation.
Weir said the benefit of joining a
sorority is the "true sense of a home
away from home for first-time stu-
dents" but warns it isn't for everyone.
"It can be overwhelming for
some students," she said. "I encour-
age any women questioning their
ability to go through recruitment
to sign up and go the first day and
realize they can withdraw at any
point in the process."
UF freshman Brooke Mahoney,
18, said she made the decision to
rush-this Fall partly due to her older
sister's experience with.Greek life.
"(She) seems to really enjoy it,"
Mahoney said. "It just looks like fun
and a good way to get involved and

Exclusive chemistry classes hope to lure engineers
By RESHELLE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer
They design computers, cars,
theme parks and space shuttles, but
there just aren't enough of them.
To lure more students to engineer-
ing this Fall, College of Engineering
majors will have eight sections of
general chemistry all to themselves,
two of which will be for women
only, said Richard Dickinson, chair-
man of the task force that recom-
mended the change and a chemical
Dickinson said statistics have
shown when students do poorly in
general chemistry, they are less likely
to stay in the College of Engineering.
The task force noticed many stu-
dents switch to different majors after
one or two years, before they take
any engineering classes, he said.
After some investigation, the task
force found a link between grades in
chemistry and the probability stu-
dents would stay in engineering.
It also found surveys of those who
left engineering indicated a negative
experience in general chemistry.
Jeffrey Keaffaber, a lecturer and
undergraduate coordinator for UF's
Department of Chemistry, said the
chemistry sequence is "make or
break" and often determines wheth-
er students remain in engineering.
Every engineering major must
take general chemistry, but without
this change they would be mixed
into sections containing students
from all majors.
Dickinson said the all-female sec-
tions, which women voluntarily reg-
ister for, are designed to bring more
women into the engineering field.
On a national level, only 19 per-
cent of all engineers are women,
while at UF, a university where ap-
proximately 53 percent of students
are female, only 22 percent of stu-
dents in the College of Engineering
are women, said Deborah Mayhew,
an assistant director in the college.
To compare, in the College of
Education 84 percent of students are
female. In the College of Journalism
and Communications, 74 percent
of students are female. And in the
College of Medicine, 52 percent of
students are women.
"You finally see the real-k
world applications of sci-
ence that's engineering."
Jennifer Curtis, chairwoman of
the chemical engineering depart-
ment and one of only two women
who chair a department in the
College of Engineering, said incor-
rect ideas about engineering plague
"A lot of females have miscon-
ceptions about what engineering is,
and a lot of that is probably from the
media," Curtis said.
In lower-level classes, like gen-
eral chemistry, students don't learn
enough engineering, which can per-
petuate negative stereotypes.
In the first years of college, en-
gineering students learn the funda-
mentals of science.and lack exposure
to engineering, Dickinson said.
This change will incorporate
as much engineering as possible
into lower-level classes, Dickinson
said. The new sections will give
future engineers perspective on
the relevance of chemistry to their
All of the engineering discussion
sections will be taught by highly
qualified graduate students from
the College of Engineering, he said.
They will be able to incorporate
more examples of problems stu-
dents might face in the industry. He
said he hopes this will raise aware-
ness of what engineers really do and
dismiss negative stereotypes.
Dickinson also said the new sec-
tions will allow students to meet
and become friends with other en-
Keaffaber said he will teach two
lectures of engineering sections, and
he will make some adjustments to
the curriculum to target it toward

"You finally see the real world
applications of science that's en-
gineering," Keaffaber said.
Dickinson said if the program is
effective in raising grades and keep-
ing engineers, it will continue and
could spread to other classes such as
physics and calculus.

UF grads to teach in Japan
By MELISSA FILIPKOWSKI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Cara Lakin doesn't speak any Japanese.
She has never been to Asia and doesn't know
anyone on the entire continent. But in three
days Japan will be home to her and six other
Seven UF graduates.will depart for Japan on
July 30 as participants in the Japan Exchange
and Teaching program, or JET. Sponsored by
the government of Japan, the participants
will spend at least one year working beside
Japanese English-language teachers at junior
and senior high schools in rural areas of Japan.
The UF participants are Lakin, Devin Casadey,
Seth Eason, Julie Rodriguez, Steven Shulmister,
Jonathan Smith and James Wadsworth.
"Participants will go to different schools in
rural areas of Japan that have had limited access
to American language and culture," Japanese
Consulate spokeswoman Darci Kissinger said.
Lakin, who graduated in May from the UF
Elementary Education Pro-Teach program, will
be teaching English to middle school and kin-
dergarten students in Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
The JET program is offered in approximately
40 countries with more than 30,000 participants
since its start in 1987. This year, there are more
than 1,300 Americans in the program, 36 from
The JET program aims to enhance foreign
language skills in Japan and promote inter-
national exchange at the local level through
fostering ties between the Japanese and young
adults from other countries.
Lakin's interest in the program began af-
ter she had a professor who had- traveled to
"I was totally inspired to go," she said. "In
the back of my mind, I knew it was something
I would want to do."
Rodriguez was a Japanese Language and
Literature major and Shulmister was a Decision
Information and Sciences major with a minor
The participants were required to pass an
application screening process and an interview
to qualify for the program.
Each-participant will receive a salary equiv-
alent to approximately $30,000 a year depend-
ing on the exchange rate and an apartment to
live in near his or her assigned school.
Lakin knows very little about her apartment
and school but says she isn't too worried about
"I was totally inspired to go. In the
back of my mind, I knew it was some-
thing I would want to do."
"I have received a few photos of the apart-
ment," she said, "but I'm open for-anything."
Lakin also received a letter of welcome and
a packet from the Osaka School Board.
Overall, Lakin said she hopes to' gain a
general knowledge of Japanese culture and
the landscape of the country during her time
"I am hoping to be fully immersed in the
Japanese culture while also learning more
about myself," she said. "Everything is going
to be new and exciting."
To qualify for the JET program in the United
States, applicants must hold a bachelor's de-
gree, be a U.S. citizen, have excellent English
skills, be under 40, not lived in Japan for three
or more years of the last eight years and have a
general interest in Japanese culture.
Applications for next. year's program will
be available in September and are due in the
beginning of December. For more information,
please call the Consulate General of Japan in
Miami at (305) 530-9090.

Grease Team campaigns for proper grease disposal
* THE PROGRAM CAME
ABOUT AFTER SEVERAL SEW-
AGE SPILLS IN GAINESVILLE.
By CRYSTAL HENRY
Just as the squeaky wheel gets the
grease, greasy pipes got the attention
of Gainesville Regional Utilities.
GRU intern and Alligator con-
.tributing writer Melissa Filipkowski
said she and fellow intern, Student
Senate President Diane Kassim, are
in charge of a campaign to educate
the public about proper grease dis-
posal after three recent back-to-back
sewage spills caused by grease dogs
contaminated local creeks.
"We call ourselves the Grease
Team," Filipkowski said..
Last weekend, she and Kassim
set up a table outside of Winn-Dixie
on Southwest 16th Avenue, offering
information about proper disposal
of household grease and gave out
free grease disposal kits.
The Grease Trapper kits include.
information about preventing
grease clogs, a plastic container
known as the Grease Trapper, grease
disposal bags and a postcard to
order more bags or an additional
said GRU started
-giving out the
two weeks ago.
About 500 have
& been distributed
Kassim 5,000 niore slated
to be given out .
She and Kassim will be at stores
like Winn-Dixie, Albertsons and
Wal-Mart every Saturday from 10
a.m. until 1 p.m. and in the GRU
lobby Friday afternoons from 3 to 5
p.m. handing out the kits and infor-
mation about grease disposal.
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection spokes-
woman Jill Johnson said she believes
the reason for the grease clogs is that
people aren't educated about the ef-
fects of grease in the sewer system.
Johnson said she didn't think
disposing of grease by pouring it
down the kitchen sink was a prob-
lem when she was in college. Her
mother always took care of that
when she was at home, so she didn't
know any better.
"Anything that educates about
grease disposal is good," she said.
The department's Wastewater
Compliance Assurance Supervisor
Melissa Long said the department
is looking into whether restaurants
or residents caused the sewage spills
but said that "GRU is pretty aggres-
sive in their maintenance," and that
the Grease Trappers should help.
Filipkowski said despite the
three recent spills, GRU is about 25
percent below-the national average
of wastewater spill incidents.
Security concerns dominate Senate debate of Internet-based election system

as proof of his or her age.
"You give him your buddy's that he lent
you last week to take a (chemistry) test,"
Former Impact Party spokeswoman Allison
Cullin said all she needs to vote in general elec-
tions is her voter registration, not photo ID.
Sen. Jason Litin said many students know
his GatorLink password, arguing the security
of an unsecured system could be defeated.
GatorLink account policy prohibits sharing
of account information. Violations can result in
loss of access to UF computer services.
The risk of voter coercion, that voters may
be watched and influenced while they vote at
their computers, was also the focus of a round
of discussion at the meeting.
Sen. Mike Belle compared the unsecured-
site system to absentee ballots that candidates
sometimes bring, door-to-door, requesting
votes. With absentee ballots, he said, others
are free to watch over voters' shoulders.
Former Student Body presidential candi-
date MacKenzie Moritz suggested there was
irony in the coercion fears.
"I think a lot of the students trying to make
the argument about coercion are already
strongly influenced by the organizations that
they're in," he said, adding that he is "not anti-
Greek by any means."
Online-voting committee member Sen.
Susan Henriques wrote three amendments to
the bill that would make room in SG statutes
for the unsecured-site
Student online voting option. All
Government three were voted down.
"I do not believe we
listened to our constituents tonight at all,"
Henriques said at the close of the meeting.
Between the online-voting committee
meeting Sunday and Tuesday's Senate meet-
ing, 63 students sent form letters via the
Progress Party's Web site asking their senators
to support Henriques' amendment.
Online-voting committee chairman Sen.
Jared Hernandez said it was very important to
him that his committee be nonpartisan.
The bill was sponsored by the leaders of all
three major SG parties the Impact Party, the
Access Party and the Gator Party.
However, Kassim said three committee
members approached her with concerns that
Hernandez -was biased in his leadership.
Moritz suggested this partiality showed
through in the terms "secured" and "unse-
cured." Both systems would use 128-bit encryp-
tion not even the U.S. government can break.

Relations between Criser Hall and Reitz Union recovering after veto
ADMINISTRATION, from page 1
"The only group that can allocate those
funds is SG," Goldberg said. "Administration
can't step in in the process."
He meets with Telles-Irvin twice per month.
"That's working out well for us," he said. "I
think that our communication has gotten bet-
ter since we've had those meetings."
Senate President Pro-Tempore John Boyles
said Telles-Irvin was just new to the process
when she made her decision.
"She has said that she did not really know
what was going on, what was coming with
this bill," he said.
Boyles added that despite initially hearing
rumors some administrators think of SG as
"just a bunch of kids playing government," he
hasn't formed strong opinions on the UF-SG
"It's so soon into the terms of our new ad-
ministration that it wouldn't be fair to make
judgments like that at this point," he said.
As president, Goldberg is the only student
member of the UF Board of Trustees and said
the veto is one for the history books.
"I think that the administration realizes that
we are an important aspect of the university,"
he said. "They have not by any means talked
down to me. They appreciate what I say about
students. They want to hear first hand about
what is going on on-campus."

she did not really know what was

And Telles-Irvin said she thinks SG leaders
are on top of their game.
"We have very capable (student) leaders,"
she said. "We have a system that runs well. I
think that most leaders in SG take their roles
But Telles-Irvin said there remains much
work to be done to make SG more accessible
and more relevant to students.
"It's always a challenge," she said. "We're
all in this together to make this a better institu-
tion. This is a partnership and I plan to work
closely with them. They play a very integral
part in advancing the institution forward."
Boyles said that despite not hearing of any
resentment in the Reitz Union corridors, SG
members stay on their toes a little more.
"Obviously, it will continue to affect all of
us," he said. "It's history, so it's going to affect
us. It will affect the way that we approach things
in the future. It's something that we think a little
more about than we did in the past."
But Boyles said he does not see senators bas-
ing their decisions on the possibility of a veto.
"We need to put it behind us and move
on," he said.
Biggest tuition increases affect graduate students in professional programs

Rational thinking sh(
ust for a change of pace, I'm going to step away from
what's going wrong at UF and in our society and spend
some time on the basics I don't think some of you have
en paying attention in class.
Today's topic is something I've been trying to beat into
your heads since my first day on the job: rational thinking.
It's no secret I don't have any use for extremists of any
kind especially not the bleeding-heart liberals and conser-
vatives we so often see (and, unfortunately, hear) here in the
land of the free.
As a former conservative, I find those fanatical liberals
to be the scarier of the two: Both do their best to destroy the
fabric of society by fighting for ideals shared by only a frac-
tion of the country, but liberals also have no practical sense of
what the government has the resources to accomplish.
You ask, "How can I tell if I am one of these outrageous lib-
erals, or if I simply have a healthy respect for civil liberties?"
In order to help you on your path to self discovery and
recovery, if the results turn out that way I present to you
a foolproof method of determining your level of liberalhood:
the "Ally McBeal" test.
You may remember "Ally McBeal" as a silly little TV
show about a silly little law firm that always got itself into
boringly silly situations.
In one episode, a businesswoman and single mother sued
her employers for gender-based discrimination.
This woman was one of those I'll-work-80-hours-per-
types that you admire, despise or feel pity for, depending on
your personal beliefs.
After she became pregnant, as one would expect, she had
to cut down on those hours quite a bit.
Her new, fulfilling life as a self-supporting single mom
was just dandy until she was passed over for a promotion.
The job, of course, went to I've-been-working-80-hours-
would be nonpartisan
Thus, the lawsuit: She says she
was discriminated against because
the only reason she stopped work-
ing 80-hour workweeks was be-
cause she had a kid.
The argument from her lawyers
Matt Sanchez was that it was an affront to human-
Pure Foppery ity to deny a promotion to someone
email@example.com for spending less time at work and
more time with their kids which
only females did.
Since this was American TV, Ms. Businesswoman won
the suit and everyone considered it a victory for civil liberties
and a savage blow to the old-boy country-club machine.
So, here's the test: If your brain hurts from the thought
that such flaming ridiculousness could even be conceived of,
then you are a rational human being.
If you agree, on the other hand, that the company should
be punished for giving a promotion to a guy who put in
obscenely long hours instead of to the woman who cut
her workload in half, then you're a U.S.-government-has-
But just so my rational liberal buddies don't feel left out,
this scenario can be adapted to sniff out the conservatives.
Their first thought upon hearing the details of the case
was "Screw the lawsuit; whoever let that chick out of the
kitchen in the first place should be thrown in jail."
So remember kids: If any of your friends fail this test, they
are dangerous extremists and should be made fun of as often
as possible. Put that peer pressure to good use.
If you failed the test, console yourself with a bit of ad-
vice from our country's finest instructional media, G.I. Joe:
Knowing is half the battle.

Airline comedy can fly, but beware corporate-shtick takeoff
During the descent of my
recent Delta flight into
Atlanta, the flight atten-
dant came on the intercom to list
the connecting flights. With a dead-
pan voice, he began: "I'm now going
to read a very long and boring list."
He then paused for laughter that
This wisecrack was just one of
several made by Delta Dan through-
out the flight. Each one seemed
forced and out-of-place.
My discomfort with these jokes
puzzled me until I spoke with
Patrick Smith, author of the book
"Ask the Pilot: Everything You
Need to Know About Air Travel."
After echoing my feelings, he
emphasized what he sees as the big-
, ger picture that airlines are trying
to be funny without first figuring
out how to communicate effectively
on a normal, professional level.
"Why should airlines expect
people to appreciate in-flight com-
edy when they can't even offer a co-
herent explanation about things like
delays or lost luggage?" he asked
me in an e-mail.
"Airlines try to present difficult,
complex situations in the simplest
terms, and the end result is conde-
scending baby talk: 'Sorry, we have
to bump you because the plane is
out of balance.'"
In other words a bit of mutual re-
spect is needed before the employee
can say, as a Pacific Southwest
Airlines attendant once did, "Ladies
and gentlemen, I'd like to welcome
you to Honolulu: Unfortunately, we
are in Fresno."
In Smith's opinion, one carrier
stands out in the struggling indus-
try as having
management with good humor:
Southwest gate agents often play
games with delayed passengers,
and their flight attendants some-
times sing the safety instructions or
affect an Elvis or Mr. Rogers accent.
That's pretty funny.
On the business side, Southwest's
core values of humor and "luv" (the
company's stock ticker symbol)
have helped the carrier remain
profitable after Sept. 11, 2001, while
its big spoke-and-hub U.S. brothers
struggle with expensive pilot con-
tracts and fleet upkeep.
Delta and Northwest may file for
bankruptcy soon, joining US Airways
and United in the hangar of shame.
Southwest Airlines is the epito-
me of corporate humor. The reversal
is poetic; after decades of stand-up
monologues insulting air travel,
we now have an airline famous for
mocking itself. Airplane humor has
made the round trip.
As large companies focus on
improving their "corporate culture,"
Southwest-style humor is spreading
through the business world.
Such staid institutions as IBM
and Fidelity Investments, for ex-
ample, have admitted to hiring "hu-
mor consultants" for up to $5,000 an
hour. If this trend continues,'hilarity
might become a legitimate metric of
the corporate makeover.
Frankly, this trend worries me.
When a company's signature trait
is democratized for widespread use,
something awful ensues: It becomes
.I'm concerned about what will
happen if humor becomes another
component of crafting corporate
strategy. Will this be part of an MBA
degree taught by a professor of cor-
And after. Management con-
sultants begin recommending
open mic time for the boss, what's
next? Will humor follow "revenue
streams" as the latest for-profit
principle to invade nonprofit op-
Imagine donating blood in the
care of Red Cross nurses who lighten
the mood by wearing vampire teeth.
Part of tht surprise of a Delta em-
ployee joking is that Delta is famous
for being serious and conservative.
Just look at its bland moniker.

Thor Against the World
Smog Veil Records
Like He-Man singing Bon Jovi or
GWAR for Poison fans, Thor unleash-
es an onslaught of pop metal from the perspective
of a Nordic god. If that description doesn't hook
you, quickly browse over to the next CD review. For
the rest of you, I will attempt to explain the grace
and beauty of Thor's latest ode to the gods, "Thor
Against the World."
Thor (yes, that is his actual surname) has been
providing multimedia entertainment from movies
to music to rock n' roll comic geeks since the mid
'70s. His latest creation shows that his B-talent status
is well-deserved, for better or worse.
The music is horrendous and extremely lactose
friendly, with cheesy guitar solos hammered on top
of even cheesier synths. Thankfully, the lyrics are
borderline Shakespearean, with heart-wrenching
poetry like "Hey hey women, I wouldn't trade you
for three/ Hey hey women, you mean a whole lot
The real gem of the CD is the accompanying
music video for "Glimmer," which can be accessed
when putting the disc in a .computer. The video,
which has special effects and acting straight from
the Roger Corman School of Production, fits the
"Thor Against the World" is awkward, preten-
tious, larger than. life and unknowingly hilarious
- all the components of a perfect cult CD.
Times Beach Records
In their self-titled disc, the Muggs
forego the last 20 years of rock music
and put out a blues-rock record straight from Detroit,
circa 1975. Unlike their revivalist contemporaries Jet
and Kings of Leon, they lack any sort of modem day
shimmer, which will keep them from the spotlight of
their counterparts. Still, their rusty sound will enthuse
purists and geeky music critics alike.
Nothing about the Muggs is pretty, and it's easy to
see why they proudly proclaim themselves to be the
ugliest band in the world. There is nothing smooth
about the constant thud of the rhythm section as they
pound away relentlessly. The blistering guitar and
blues-grit vocals create a grimy experience. The band
members also are ugly.
The standout track is the instrumental "Underway."
Though by definition lacking the sleazy vocals of lead
singer Danny, the groove generated by the three-piece
is undeniable, on par with "Toys in the Attic"-era
Despite their name, the Muggs refrain from mug-
ging and deliver a straight-ahead rocker that serves as
a reminder of how sometimes to move forward, you
need to step back.
World Leaders Pretend
Warner Bros. Records
-' "Punches" is a completely self-contra-
dictory album, from lush orchestra-
tion with raspy vocals to minute-long piano pieces
alongside eight-minute epics, all held together by
a challenging pop-music sound. Proof that rock
isn't meant to be logical, "Punches" is a beautifully
crafted album that should appeal to everyone listen-
ing to music today.
World Leaders Pretend bring together three dis-
tinct sounds into most of its songs that surprisingly
create a cohesive experience. First is the surprising
vocals of band leader Keith Ferguson, who slurs
his words together when not hitting startlingly
high notes. Behind him is the pounding drums of '
Arthur Mintz, who creates innovative rhythms in an
unlikely situation. Holding everything together is
dense, imaginative instrumentation with an orches-
tra, guitar and glockenspiel all coming together to
form a Phil Spector-esque wall of sound.
Although each song has merit, the most easily ac-
cessible track is the album's namesake, "Punches."
The song is dynamic, swaying back and forth from
the disc's signature orchestration to a simple vocal
Creating a unique sound from unlikely compo-
nents, "Punches" is a pop masterpiece that warrants
and gives joy to the repeated listens that are needed
to fully grasp its craftwork.

'Lion in Winter' presents dramas universal in history
The English have done it again.
The proper royales of olde dish up a
platter that's oozing with juiciness and
scandal in the play "The Lion in Winter."
This sudsy, slippery story is about the
drama of King Henry II's court. Namely, the
despise, infidelity, greed, fear, pity, betrayal,
love and plotting that makes up the power
struggle between his three sons, Richard (the
Lionheart), Geoffry and John.
Up for grabs in this life-sized game of chess
are a throne, a princess and some valuable
real estate. It's Christmastime; the family is all
together, hanging holly around the castle, and
they are at each other's throats literally.
It is the ultimate case for democracy. The
arbitrary ways decisions were made, whether
out of spite, whim or favoritism, would make

The greedy trinity of Richard, Geoffry and

And finally, the only victim of the play,
besides those pawns used in the kings' wars

Hate it or love it, 'Prince' leaves readers hanging
Istood in the midnight queue with
the other die-hard Harry Potter
blokes to get my copy of "Half-
blood Prince." I didn't immediately
read it because I wanted to re-read
the first five Harry Potter books. I
also didn't immediately read it be-
cause my prat of a boyfriend (who
I completely adore) decided to "bor-
row" my book and read it himself
before I had a chance to open it, after
rowing with me about how silly he
thought the whole Harry Potter
After finally getting it back, I
stayed up all night reading it, and
frankly, I'm knackered.
"Half-Blood Prince" is not as
well written or as poignant as books
three and five. Rowling's imagina-
tion introduces us to fewer aspects
of the magical world than she nor-
So to keep myself from spoiling
the book, I'll list what I disliked and
loved about Rowling's sixth install-
I disliked the fact that characters
like Ginny, Neville and Luna, who
Rowling spent time developing in
"The Order of the Phoenix," did
not play a larger role in this novel.
Hagrid and Lupin also didn't show
up nearly as often as I had hoped.
I disliked Harry Potter's new
romantic relationship. It seems to
stem from nothing. The character
Harry ends up with in book six
showed potential for becoming an
interesting and essential part of his
life in book five. But in book six,
she receives little attention from the
Most of all, I
dislike the fact
that I have to
wait 18 to 24
months before I
know what hap-
That is because there -were so
many aspects of this novel I loved.
To begin with, Harry Potter is no
longer an angsty, pissy teenager. He
also is not the boy hero he was in the
first four books. Harry has grown
into a vulnerable, yet mature adult
almost ready for his final show-
down with Voldemort.
Rowling also does a great job of
showing how Voldemort's return
has darkened the magical world
Jayme descriptions of
the student's tra-
Gough ditional school-
Off the Press supply shopping
email@example.com trip in Diagon
Then there is
the relationship between Ron and
Hermione. Their confused .feelings
for each other offer comic relief and
a dose of reality to. the reader. Their
constant loyalty to Harry is sweet,
but Rowling keeps it realistic by al-
lowing both Ron and Hermione to
doubt Harry's theories about who
a possible murderer in the school
I also enjoyed finding more
about Tom Riddle's past. Rowling's
description of Tom Riddle's meta-
morphosis into the dark wizard,
Lord Voldemort, is creepy. The read-
er learns enough about Voldemort
to find him disturbing yet almost
deserving of sympathy.
And then there is the ending.
The Half-Blood Prince reveals
himself. A major character dies. All
perceptions you had about certain
characters change in a matter of
pages. You are left with a cliffhanger
and a sneaky suspicion that what
you just witnessed might not be
what it appears.
Whether for conversation or foreplay, sex talk should be silenced
Most relationships walk on two legs
conversation and sex. The mo-
ment either one stumbles, warning
flags go up.
If you're able to maintain good sex and
good conversation separately, combining the
two creates a whole new array of issues to
The first complication of sex talk stems
from the nearly infinite variations of conversa-
tion types during sex. Some people talk about
their desires and others talk in character. Some
make jokes and some just chitchat.
I separate all sex talk into two main catego-
ries: that which is designed to enhance the sex,
or "dirty talk," and that which has nothing
to do with the .experience at all, "intercourse
The first category gets swept under the
blanket-term "dirty talk." However, with both
the multiple variations fantasy talk, baby
talk, demeaning talk, etc. and their very
separate followings, lump-
ing it all together under one
name proves dangerous.
While I'm pretty com-
fortable talking about my
fantasies with a partner,.
you'd be hard pressed to
get me talking like a toddler. Yet both get
pegged as 'dirty talk.'
A different experience-enhancing dialogue
in need of distinction from "dirty talk," I refer
to as shoptalk.
Shoptalk consists of the in-act discussions,
requests, commands and compromises of the
sexual logistics. While sometimes awkward,
in my opinion, shoptalk remains the only wor-
thy conversation during sex.
Shoptalk comprises, to
Mr. Lube me at least, the necessary
communication to achieve
Risque Business the mutual goal- namely
firstname.lastname@example.org orgasm. All other types of
talking tend to make me
laugh out loud, which is
another sound not well received during sex.
On the topic of talk that topples the mood,
I label the other category of sex talk as "inter-
Intercourse discourse is surprisingly com-
mon, especially when it comes to making light
The intention seems obvious. Making one
endearing to another through laughter effec-
tively gets sex partners. However, when the
nudity starts the jokes should stop.
But it's not only light banter. Intercourse
discourse types have an incomparable man-
ner to prattle while they probe.
Typically, the conversation remains super-
ficial with plans for the week or recounting
the day. When the conversation becomes an
intimate confession of inner thoughts those
not sex related of course I find myself even
Mostly, when it comes to coital conversa-
tion, I wish we all could just shut up.

Meyer debuts at Media Days
Mark Almond / AP Photo
UF coach Urban Meyer speaks at the Southeastern Conference me-
dia days in Hoover, Ala., Wednesday.
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
HOOVER, Ala. Before
making his official Southeastern
Conference debut on Wednesday,
Urban -Meyer was asked about
his first stop in Gainesville. -
It occurred more than 20 years
ago, when Meyer was a reserve
defensive back at Cincinnati. The
Bearcats, serving as UF's home-
coming feast in 1984, fell to the
Meyer never imagined that
two decades later, he would
enter the SEC Football Media
Days as one of the highest-profile
first-year coaches in conference
"There was some really pretty
girls up in the stands. I was 19
years old," said Meyer of his 1984
visit to the Swamp.
"That kind of tells you where
my mind was. [UF had] very
good players and it was hot.
That's all I remember."
After months of anticipation
from the national media, Meyer
was the first SEC coach to take
the podium at Media Days.
Since arriving at UF, Meyer has
been praised for his bluntness
and honesty, but on Wednesday
there were no surprise state-
ments or shocking answers.
Instead, Meyer seemed hum-
bled by his SEC debut.
"My respect for the SEC goes
much further back than 2005,"
Meyer said. "If you would ask
me the last 19 years what I be-
lieve the best conference in col-
lege football was, I would have
said the SEC."
Meyer said that from top to
bottom he believes no conference
compares to the SEC.
"My respect for the SEC
goes much further back
than 2005. If you would
ask me the last 19 years
what I believe the best con-
ference in college football
was, I would have said the
UF football coach
But while UF may have some
of the top athletes in the confer-
ence, Meyer knows that it takes
more than pure talent to win in
. "Athletes like we have in
Florida can run away with the
game," he said.
"Can we finish the deal and do
we have the toughness to hang in
there when things are not going
well? Those are the two [biggest]
Change In Approach
On the all-SEC preseason
coaches' team, no -team had more
recipients than UF.
But the first-year coach wants
a change in mentality. Last season,
under former coach Ron Zook,
the Gators fell apart in the fourth
quarter of several games, losing
their composure under pressure.
To Meyer, it's all about tough-
"My evaluation after mat
drills and spring practice was
[we are not a tough team],"
Meyer said. "That was the theme
of the summer, and I'm hoping
that the team [shows toughness
Safety Jarvis Herring, who
served as UF's player represen-
tative along with Mike Degory,
admitted that the team didn't
have that tough mental edge
"Guys are actually scared of
making mistakes now," Herring
said. "[Last year] we got kind of
lax and we just started trying to
do our own things. We were just
Herring said that in 2004,
there was a feeling that if the
Gators failed, they always had
Under Meyer, that attitude is
equal to heresy.
"The team is not just waiting
SEE MEYER, PAGE 25
Press questions Meyer's system, finds offense belongs to Leak
Somewhere, right now, there's a dad on a
family vacation who would sympathize
with Urban Meyer.
"Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are
we there yet?"
Since day one, many members of the
media have incessantly bombarded the first-
year UF coach with a question, possessing an
almost equally obvious answer.
"Will your system work?"
"Can Chris Leak run your system?"
"Can your system work at Florida?"
"How will your system fare in the SEC?"
System, system, system, system.. .shut
Yeah, you're sports writers. Sure, you've
played a lot of NCAA 2006.
But prove your football IQ with your
PlayStation and quit questioning the com-
petency of a coach who has done nothing
Before you go throwing the "S" word
around like that, tell me: What is Meyer's
My best answer: one that racks up a ton of
points out of the shotgun.
Well, I guess I was also wrong.
Not with my answer but my question.
As Meyer explained at the SEC Football
Media Days on Wednesday, it's not his sys-
tem. It's not even a system at all.
His formula is simple: take your best play-
ers and get them the ball frequently.
Figure out a way for them to excel at what
they do best and score often.
As he explained Wednesday, it's not his
offense, it's Chris Leak's.
As he has reiter-
ated time and again, it
wasn't Utah's system, it
was Alex Smith's.
Without these key
players, to whom the
offense is tailored,
Meyer's system doesn't
click that easily.
"As a matter of
fact, I took [Smith] out
a couple of times," Meyer said. "I wanted to
put him right back in:
"The system is in place. It's a player sys-
tem. What we try to do is see if you can make
plays. You are a talented guy. I have got to get
you the ball. That's what I do well."
Maybe we should believe him oih this
one. I mean, Smith, the No. 1 pick in the NFL
Draft, just signed a contract with the 49ers
worth only $8.2 million per year.
Sure, Meyer will face defenses in the
Southeastern Conference quicker and stron-
ger than any Mountain West team would
ever dream of recruiting.
. Of course, he'll close the gap by trading
in his Utah Yugos for Florida Ferraris on the
other side of the ball.
But Meyer's system goes beyond mere
"Balancing mental and physical abilities
is his thing," senior center Mike Degory said.
."He's not just concerned about a player's
performance, he's also concerned about the
"Building a relationship, that's his thing."
So will innovation and unity work in the
SEC? Well, we'll find out.
U While it seemed that Gators'
pitcher Alan Home would leave
for the pros, the ace may stick
around for a senior season. For

Fulmer back in '05
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
HOOVER, Ala. Steve Spurrier
was not the only coach making a re-
turn to the Southeastern Conference
Media Days on Wednesday.
Back after taking a year off was
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer,
who didn't make the trip last sea-
son because his attorneys advised
against attending what he called
a "legal circus." Last year, Fulmer
was fined $10,000 by Commissioner
Mike Slive for not attending. He
had to answer questions over a
Fulmer was advised not to at-
tend last year because of lawsuits
against him regarding his talking
to the NCAA about possible viola-
tions at Alabama.
"I really regret that I wasn't able
to be here last year and hate all the
circumstances that kept .me from
being here last year," Fulmer said.
"I haven't seen the commissioner
yet, but if you see him, make sure
h e knows that I was here, because
it can be expensive if you don't
Fulmer said, there were threats
to his family on his cell phone, but
after his opening speech, he refused
to comment on the whole situation
regarding the lawsuits.
However, Fulmer never had any
second thoughts about attending
"I am glad to be here," he said.
"This kicks off our season. It has
for a lot of years and the volatil-
ity of our profession and the high
expectations that are out there for
coaches these days, you know, we
don't get to exchange like this very
often with this many people and
tell folks about our programs. I like
that. As much as you think I.don't,
I like it."
Fulmer maintained that he did
the right thing throughout the
Conference himself for
keep the game clean.
"They usually have their own
selfish reasons for [cheating] and
we have seen it as gamblers do it,
bad agents or their runners do it
to our kids, and bad boosters do
it," he said. "I truly believe that
we all have an obligation and
responsibility to keep our game
clean of these people to the best of
Fulmer said he got-a great recep-
tion from the people in Alabama
despite all the recent off-field
"I'd like to get back to where
we have a completely great, clean,
tough, hard-fought rivalry, and
have none of this other stench in
it," he said. "Whether we can get
to that, I don't know, but I have
no hard feelings against anybody
that's a true Alabama fan."
Meyer: UF admiration is 'old news'
MEYER, from page 24
to play another season. We're-
waiting to hopefully do some
great things," Herring said.
"It's a lot more exciting.
You have a new life, it's like
you have a new breath. We
have a chance to win."
Meyer couldn't escape
questions about former UP
coach and icon Steve Spurrier,
especially since Spurrier took
the same podium just three
hours later as the head coach
of South Carolina.
When asked about the
pressure of living up to
Spurrier's success, Meyer re-
iterated comments made last
year when he said he became
a UF fan in the '90s because of
Spurrier. However, he didn't
seem very eager to tell the tale
"That is past history,"
Meyer said. "That's old
Spurrier, a crowd-pleaser
during his 40 minutes at the
microphone, was asked about
his interaction with the UF
coach since Meyer took the
job, and whether Meyer has
the temperament that' can
handle major expectations at
"[Meyer] has had an excel-
lent track record. He's done
well," Spurrier said.,
"There's no reason to
think he's not going to do
well there. But then agaii'., my
job is not to promote all the
coaches around the league."
Chinese calander gives Gamecocks hope
SPURRIER, from page 28
president don't come and tell him what to
do, unless he's cheating or losing too much,".
"I know we're not going to cheat, and I
hope we're not going to lose too much, so'
hopefully I won't see the A.D. or president
talking football with me."
"Hopefully" being the key word.
The coach once hated for his cockiness
seemed to remain cautiously humble about
Leading a South Carolina team devastated
by off-field incidents and facing potentially
severe penalties after revealing 10 NCAA
rules violations, Spurrier isn't ready to enter-
tain talk of heated rivalries be it with Vols
"We need to beat somebody first before
those guys are going to worry about South
Carolina,", Spurrier said. "Some people are
going to make us their rivals when we haven't
beaten them much at all.
"Hopefully we can get respect, but we
have to earn it."
At least the Gamecocks have a little history
and superstition on their side.
According to Chinese
S horoscope, 2005 is the year of
the rooster and so was 1969.
., ... | And aside from a 2001
-.....- Outback Bowl victory, the
South Carolina faithful have
had nothing to cheer ab6ui
Spurrier "In 1969 South Carolina
won the ACC championship.
We went 6-0 in ACC that year, and it was year
of the rooster," Spurrier said.
"[This] is the year of the rooster so don't
bet too much against the Gamecocks, even
though we're big underdogs. We've got the
rooster on our side. That's about the only
thing we have going for us."

SEC officials present guidelines for instant replay
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
HOOVER, Ala. If instant
replay existed a year ago, and
UF had defeated Tennessee in the
second game of the season, who
knows where former coach Ron
Zook would be today.
I A controversy with the game
.clock, along with a personal foul
called on Dallas Baker that ap-
peared to be equally the fault
of his Tennessee counterpart,
had critics screaming for instant
replay. UF fans especially said
instant replay could have saved,
Not so fast.
Southeastern Conference coor-
dinator of officials Bobby Gaston
officially laid out the guidelines
for the newly implemented in-
stant replay system Wednesday at
SEC Football Media Days, but he
made it clear that under the new
rules, nothing would have been
reversed in Knoxville.
"The instant replay deal has
tried to keep the replay people out
of actually officiating the game.
They're only there to correct the
mistake that they made," Gaston
said. "If we had to watch the
clock every play and determine
whether they started it properly
or improperly, that's real tedious
thing, I can assure you."
As for the personal fouls,
Gaston said that in the South
Carolina-Clemson brawl last year,
they couldn't determine all the
participants until the Wednesday
after the game. Basically, Gaston
said it would be too difficult to
review fights in many situations.
"I didn't think we should stop
a game until Wednesday," Gaston
But replay has finally arrived
in the SEC and much of college
football, though it's different than
the system used
in the NFL.
nician will sit will have a
"We decid secured replay
with a DVSport
Gaston Digital Replay
system. A replay
official, communicator and tech-
nician will sit in the booth.
"We decided to do this rather
than having a phone at the side-
lines like most people do because
I was told by the NFL people
that when you put a phone right
there on the stands itself, that you
have got people hanging over the
stands [as a distraction], as well as
coaches hollering at you," Gaston
He also said that with this
technology, the replays will be
quick. Most decisions could be
made between the whistle and
the beginning of the next play,
meaning the already drawn out
college football games shouldn't
run much longer.
Coaches will have no say as
to whether plays are reviewed or
not. However, the Instant Replay
Official' will review every poten-
tially review-able play. So fans
and even coaches will not neces-
sarily know if a play is being re-
viewed unless it is overturned.
Gaston said that while coaches
cannot ask for a replay, there are
other motives for coaches to have
their voices heard.
"They can encourage tfs by
taking a time out and turning
and staring at the replay booth,
and that might prompt us a little
bit into action to take it a little bit
farther," Gaston said.
While there could possibly
be a few kinks in the beginning
of the season, Gaston anel the
rest of the SEC expect a smooth
"We're walking on uncharted
waters," Gaston said. "So, sub-
sequently, we don't know totally
what to expect, although we did
practice this equipment at the
Kentucky spring game and we
found, amazingly, that we will be
able to review far more players
and plays than we thought we

Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF pitcher Alan Home has until the first day of fall classes to decide whether or not to
sign a professional contract.
By TIM CASEY
Alan Home is getting multiple lessons in
marketing this summer.
Not only is the junior pitcher studying mar-
keting in the classroom, but he's also learning
from first-hand experience.
Home was chosen in the 11th round
of the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft by the
New York Yankees with the 349th selec-
tion, but has not yet signed with the team.
Previously, it had been assumed that the ace
pitcher wouldn't return to UF for a senior

but we haven't heard back from them in over a
week and a half," Home said Wednesday.
"They pretty much signed everyone around
me, guys that were drafted behind me and in
front of me," Home said. "It will probably be
something that comes down to the wire."
He knows something about contract nego-
tiations from personal experience.
Home was drafted in the first round by the
Cleveland Indians in 2001 out of high school,
and was a 30th-round choice of the Anaheim
Angels in the 2004 MLB Draft.
"About three weeks ago, I had lunch with
the local scout [for the Yankees]," Home said.
"That's the only face-to-face meeting we've
had. I've talked to their scouting director on
Home had a 4.05 ERA in 113.1 innings,
compiling a team-best 10-2 record.
He made his last appearance of the season'
June 23 in the College World Series, but left the
game after a fourth inning leg injury in UF's
6-3 win against Arizona State.
"I just pulled my hamstring," Home said.
"Time is what it takes to heal. I needed some
rest after a long year."
"Regardless of whether I'm back
in the fall or I sign, I won't throw
again until the fall."
Home has spent his time since the CWS
rehabilitating his leg and resting.
"Regardless of whether I'mr back in ite fall
or I sign, I won't throw again until the fall,"
Should Home turn down a contract with
the Yankees, the 2006 Gators would have a for-
midable lineup that could improve on the best
season in school history. UF lost to Texas in the
championship round of the CWS.
"I've talked with Coach [Pat] McMahon,
he wants what's best for me," Home.-said.
"Obviously, he wants to have me back. He
knows I'm ready for professional baseball."
The major league trading deadline is
Sunday. To make a push towards the post-
season and unseat the defending World Series.

looking for help.
"They've traded off a lot of their talent so
they're trying to build up their system," Home

Spurrier's return to SEC becomes main attraction

Hoover, Ala. A sign in
the lobby welcomed attend-
ees to this year's Southeastern
Conference Football Media
And if the Wynfrey Hotel
had a marquee, it would
undoubtedly read: "Steve
Spurrier Back, Tonight Only."
A national coach of the
year followed by the coach
of this season's projected SEC
champion opened the media
But there was little doubt
who was the headliner.
"It's good to be back," said
Spurrier, greeting the crowd
hanging on his every word.
"I've missed you guys. It's a
lot more fun hanging around
the SEC than the other league
I was in for a couple years."

Spurrier made his SEC debut
Wednesday, picking up where
he left off when he dumped
UF in January 2002 as the
conference's focal figure.
His rivals still can't stand
him, but his opponents con-
tinue to respect him.
UF coach Urban Meyer
made clear the respect he held
for the Spurrier's SEC-domi-
nating Gators teams.
"It's good to be back.
I've missed you guys.
It's a lot more fun hang-
ing around the SEC than
the other league I was in
for a couple years."
USC football coach
Even Spurrier's long-time
nemesis Tennessee coach
Phillip Fulmer seemed to of-
fer his own form of tribute.
"I don't need to give any
advice to Steve," said Fulmer,
who's Volunteers defeated
UF only three times during
Spurrier's 12-year tenure.
"He's got all the answers
"We didn't beat him
enough at Florida. When I
heard he was first coming
back I said, 'Ah, crap,' or
something like that."
But the man who once
said, "You can't spell Citrus
without UT," poking fun at
the Volunteers' string of sec-
ond place SEC finishes during
his tenure,-has seemed to have
toned down his inflammatory
A miserable 12-20 two-sea-
son record in the big leagues
can tend to do that.
"Sometimes, a head coach
may only be as good as his
players," Spurrier said. "I
was lucky to have some great
teams at Florida, no doubt
"But you learn to appreci-
ate that all coaches work their
tails off to give players the
best chance to win games."
The golf and sunshine in
D.C. just doesn't compare to
that of the Palmetto State, but,
as Spurrier indicated, a lack
of institutional control also
played a large factor in his
