Old ways die hard.
Old ways may be costing UF stu-
dents money, UF officials said.
Some UF professors have refused
to comply with university policy and
make their textbook requirements
available to all book vendors, said UF
Provost Janie Fouke.
"What we require from the faculty
is to turn in and notify the community
what textbooks they'll be using," she
said. "What some faculty has been do-
ing is refusing to do that."
Instead, some professors have cho-
sen to deal exclusively with certain
bookstores, going against the univer-
sity's wishes, she said.
Professors are told to post their re-
quired texts on the UF Web site so all
book vendors have equal opportunity
to order the same books, which makes
the market competitive and drives
down book prices, Fouke said.
Less than 70 percent of the sections
taught at UF have submitted text re-
quirements, at three days into classes,
according the UF Web site.
When teachers give exclusive deals
to bookstores, students are forced to
buy and resell books at any price the
vendor wishes because .they have no
other option, Fouke said.
"I continue to give an exclusive
order to Goerings," said UF English
professor Richard Brantley. "I've used

Bush aims to draw low-income students to universities
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Responding to a dip in minor-
ity enrollment, Gov. Jeb Bush
unveiled a financial aid package
Wednesday that aims to draw un-
derprivileged high school gradu-
ates to state universities.
"As we raise tuition rates in
our state today, we see the chal-
lenges of some talented, well-
deserving, qualified students not
being able to go to the college
of their choice," Bush said at a
Tallahassee press conference.
Part of Bush's plan was in-
spired by UF President Bernie.

decision to leave, adding she will be making
a statement on her departure at Tuesday's
Student Senate meeting.
"I am dealing with some issues right now

The Student Body treasurer is responsible
for helping UF's approximately 400 student
organizations formulate their budgets each

Although Cosimi has not graduated UF,
she is not registered for any credits this semes-

The Student Activity Center, which deter-

officials within organizations to be registered
as full-time students.
Students must register for at least 12 credits
to be considered a full-time undergraduate
student during Fall and Spring semesters.

New, improved version of ISIS to hit student screens
* STUDENTS CAN VIEW A PREVIEW OF THE NEW
DESIGN ON THE CURRENT WEB SITE.
By DAVID COHEN
University officials are aiming to launch a more aestheti-
cally pleasing version of the Integrated Student Information
System, or ISIS, next month if students approve.
A nonfunctioning version is posted on the ISIS Web site for
students to view the site's organization, additional links and a
tan, orange and blue color scheme. The second major upgrade
of ISIS was done by UF personnel, and no additional funding
or outside resources were used.
Interim Associate Provost for Information Technology Marc
Hoit said UF relies heavily on the system, which has been at 95
percent capacity during the drop/add pe-
riod this week. He added that the new ver-
f. sion does not have any additional functions
the changes are purely aesthetic.
._. --, Associate Provost Sheila Dickison said
she feels the new version is attractive.
"I think it's clean and dear and easy to
use," Dickison said. "I think it looks very
Dickison good. The links have been reorganized in a
really useful way. Let's hope folks will take a
look and tell us what they think. The proof is in the pudding."
Users will be required to log in to use the links on the left
side of the page, while links on the right contain general infor-
mation that anyone can view.
Most students who have sent messages gave their approval,
and Dickison said some respondents said they wished it was
already available. Students can e-mail their opinions of the new
version to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ISIS has been in use at UF since Summer 1997, and has been
called a highly reliable system by administrators.
Dickison said before ISIS existed, students had to rely on
getting their grades by mail and had to walk to different de-
partments to get information about their status.
"We're always working to make functions like ISIS more
useful and more user-friendly," she said. "Each [version] gets
progressively better. I think none of us can imagine what it was
like before ISIS."

According to Willis, the film's pro-

plan and was shot for five days during
the first week of December. It premiered
Wednesday at the Welcome Center in
the Reitz Union.
Willis said the movie is integral in
creating a lasting impression on the
more than 20,000 prospective students
and parents who visit UF annually.

"[King] looked at conflict as

conflict, it can escalate to violence."
To carry out this nonviolent
program, Alphin said he starts with
six groups in each community:
the educational system, business

sociations, criminal justice system
and law enforcement.
He said it is important that these
groups focus on the causes of vio-

"We focus on that problem until
it's solved," Alphin said.
Although Alphin advocates
nonviolence, he said he is not trying
to take weapons from officers.

Students denied their
After drinking their brains out over the holidays, UF stu-
dents may finally be ready to get back to work. Their
WebMail, it seems, has other things on its mind.
Thanks to the wonders of modem technology, students
found themselves once again without WebMail service
Tuesday. Two of the service's servers apparently fell off a de-
livery truck, and increased web traffic caused the remaining
servers to crash.
We won't ask where those busted servers thought they
were going, but isn't "they fell off a truck" really just mob
slang for "they're stolen?"
It makes us wonder.if there are larger forces at work here.
The snafu couldn't have come at a worse time for UF stu-
dents, who are in the middle of their ridiculously short four-
day drop/add period. If we can't find out which classes entail
the most writing projects, how are we supposed to know
which ones to drop?
The most infuriating thing about the persistent e-mail prob-
lems is that UF administrators thought the crippled WebMail
could survive until this weekend.
That they couldn't anticipate the immense traffic on the
servers due to a slew of returning students is astounding.
Of course, all of this trouble originally stems from an ear-
lier decision to eliminate students' ability to forward their UF
e-mail to other accounts. Some e-mail services, most notably
Hotmail and AOL, had a somewhat humorous- tendency to
classify all official UF e-mails as spam. As a result, students
would often find messages automatically deleted from their
We've suggested it before: Blocking the UF administration's
e-mails might not have been entirely unintentional.
It is entirely possible that students don't want to see what
the administration has to say.
Think about it. Does anybody actually read those
Wednesday Updates? We suspect most UF students delete the
administration's e-mails right along with those requests from
Nigerian royalty for bank account numbers.
But the UF administration didn't get the message. Last se-
mester, the UF Information Technology Advisory Committee
decided to do away with the forwarding service. That deci-
sion, like so many others at UF, was made entirely without
They somehow hadn't planned on the increased traffic that
would be going to the WebMail site.
This isn't the first time WebMail has gone down, either.
When the site dropped out last semester, we discovered
from UF Coordinator for Computer Systems Control Frances
McDonell that "WebMail was never meant to be the primary
method students use to access their GatorLink accounts."
We'd never heard that before.
Now, during peak hours, students may have to wait to re-
trieve their e-mail until another student logs out.
That was never part of the deal.
Students can still use some other webmail services like
Yahoo! Mail to access their GatorLink e-mail without forward-
ing it to an entirely separate inbox. They still also can access
the e-mail from stand-alone e-mail programs like Thunderbird
and Microsoft Outlook. Students can find out how to set up
the programs by wading through the Office of Information
Technology Web page.

Spying sets a dangerous precedent
n "Federal government wiretapping to protect United
States," Michael Rovito completely misses the point.
His basic premise is that President Bush can break
the law because it's in our own security interests. While
this is an attractive antidote to counteract fears of authori-
tarian abuses, it is the same tired excuse of every power-
hungry ruler in history.
Personally, I am not too concerned about the issue of
civil liberties here. Truth be told, I believe the program
would be used fairly. Of greater importance is what this
means for our Constitution and democracy. What is meant
by "president," "balanced government" and "law?"
Perhaps Bush's own Supreme Court nominee, Samuel
Alito, answered it best Tuesday when he told the Senate
Judiciary Committee that no one is above the law nei-
ther the president nor the Supreme Court. -
The bottom line is this: There were, and are, legal
channels through which the president could have gotten
his way. That he didn't use those channels rightly churns
suspicion that a) thie surveillance is being abused for non-
national security purposes (would we call it Wiregate?)
and b) that the president seeks to tilt the balance of gov-
ernment further in the executive's direction.
But like I said, legal channels exist. The president
claims that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act's
secret court ,which was created for this very purpose, acts
too slowly to respond to immediate surveillance needs.
It's understandable that a tip might necessitate the instant
surveillance of someone in cahoots with, say, al-Qaeda.
Such urgency may not leave time to process the act's
required paperwork. Sure. But the court was established
with a provision for just that escape. The law provides
the government up to three days to apply for a retroactive
Michael Day True to form, the administration
Speaking Out ignored this. Why? Air Force Gen.
Michael V. Hayden, the president's
current deputy director of national
intelligence, said obtaining a retroactive warrant is "inef-
ficient" because it "involves marshaling arguments" and
"looping paperwork around." Laziness and fear of inef-
ficiency are not legal defenses.
If Bush really thought his hands were tied too tightly,
then why didn't he present Congress with a bill to loosen the
knot? He could have asked Congress for more employees on
the FISA Court to expedite the process. He could have asked
for more time to request retroactive warrants. He did none of
these things because he disdains any threat to his power, as
though he alone cares for the security of our nation.
Rovito also believes Dick Cheney's assertion that, had
secret eavesdropping existed before Sept 11, the tragedy
might have been prevented. The claim ducks the point
and attempts to instill fear. First, no serious person would
deny the need to monitor a terrorist bent on killing. The
issue is: Where does the authority to wiretap come from,
and where is the burden of proof? Certainly the president
cannot be the lone conductor in our war against terror, and
certainly an invasion of an American's privacy requires
proof that it is needed for national security.
Further, if Dick Cheney wants to list ways we could
have prevented Sept. 11, why doesn't he start with Bush's
dismissal of an Aug. 6, 2001, CIA report that predicted Bin
Laden's plan to hijack a plane?
Rovito defeats his own concluding point when he
claims that once Americans understand the need for do-
mestic spying, they will condone it. But how does a secret
and illegal program persuade a democracy?

Gun law ineffective, study says
By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer
In the state of Florida, much as in
the game of baseball, it's once, twice,
three strikes, you're out for gun-us-
But the three-strikes law, which
imposes costly jail sentences on
criminals who use guns, is not the
reason behind reduced crime rates
across Florida, according to a recent
study conducted by UF professor of
criminology Alex Piquero.
"An analysis shows that the
crime rate started to drop in the early
1990s, six to seven years before the
law was even passed," said Piquero,
who conducted his research in 2005
through data provided by the state
of Florida. A
According to the Florida
Department of Corrections Web
site, the three-strikes law has helped
reduce Florida's gun crime rates 30
percent since 1998. But Piquero's
study emphasizes that although
criminals are being taken off the
streets because of the three-strikes
law, also called the "10-20-Life" law,
the decrease in crime rates is not due
to the legislation.
According to a release about
the study, crime fell by 16 percent
between 1994 and 1998. At that
point, the three-strikes law had not
yet gone into effect. Between 2000
and 2004, right after the statute was
passed, crime went down by 13
"The state has never conducted
any sort of study to figure out this
legislation's true effect on crime,
and a claim should never be made
without accurate data to support it,"
"The spirit of this law may
make sense, but in practice
it's not doing what legisla-
tors expected, and the data
backs that up."
UF professor of criminology
Florida's three-strikes law re-
quires that a criminal who used a
gun to commit a crime serve a mini-
mum of 10 years in prison. Firing a
gun raises the penalty to a 20-year
sentence, and shooting a person in-
creases it to 25 years to life.
Many factors other than the
three-strikes law have contributed to
the decline in Florida's crime rates,
"During the 1990s, there was an
aging population, with less people
being in crime-prone stages of life, as
well as a thriving economy and the
implementation of assorted criminal
justice programs," he said. "These
three factors greatly contributed
to the decrease of statewide crime
rates, not the '10-20-Life' law."
Aside from its ineffectiveness,
the law is also extremely costly to
Florida, Piquero said, as hundreds of
offenders are locked up each year to
serve life sentences, filling up facili-
In most cases, Piquero said he
does not support the use of long
prison sentences that waste impor-
tant resources. Rather, he is in favor
of shorter incarceration terms.
"Think of it this way, there are
very few 60-year-old bank robbers
running around the world. It does
little good to incarcerate people
through their middle to adult lives
when they are no longer a threat," he
said. "Of course, this theory applies
to certain circumstances and clearly
excludes dangerous criminals."
Other studies have found that
similar three-strikes laws in states
such as Washington and California
are also ineffective.
"The spirit of this law may make
sense, but in practice it's not doing
what legislators expected, and the
data backs that up," he said. "People
are touting the effectiveness of '10-
20-Life,' and they are touting it with-
out the facts to support their claim."

funk to Atlantic
BY BECCA GOLDMAN
Your New Year's resolution to get out, try new things and
become a better-rounded individual may be kept after all. DJ
Le Spam and the Spam Allstars are making their monthly trip
to Gainesville to deliver a healthy dose of latin/jazz/funk/
elctronic/hip-hop this Saturday at The Atlantic nightclub.
The eight-piece ensemble takes the stage at 10 p.m. with
DJ Le Spam, Andrew Yeomanson spinning Afro-Cuban beats
behind guitarist Adam Zimmon, Tomas Diazon timbales and
vox, Lazaro Alfonso on congas, sax players AJ Hill-and Steve
Welsh, jazz flutist Mercedes Abal and Chad Bernstein on
trombone. The Allstars are the musical equivalent of hunch
punch: There's a little bit of everything in there.
Native to Florida, the band began in the heart of Miami
where they still play weekly shows in Little Havana
and Miami Beach. They started making a regular trip to
Gainesville in the summer of 2004, said Yeomanson.
"Bands do better in central Florida, in general," he said.
"Gainesville seemed to click almost instantaneously."
Yeomanson said he attributes the band's success in
Gainesville to their range. New material, generally good
vibes and the occasional crowd favorite keep their monthly
shows fresh and lively.
"The band is transgenerational," Yeomanson said.
"Everyone brings their own personality."
Band members are anywhere from their twenties into .
their fifties. Inspired by Miami soul music of the '60s,
Yeomanson says he also collects Miami bass records. Spam
Allstars' mixture of old and new accompanies its blend of
"It's kind of a salsa sound," said the manager of the
Atlantic, Geoff Humphreys. "Really dancy."
It's a different pace from The Atlantic's usual punk or jam
show, he said. The crowd is largely college students, older
hippies and other Allstar fans from Miami. After working at
the Atlantic for over a year, Humphreys said he's seen the
show sell out several times.
"A lot of people like to take their shoes off and dance," he
That jammyy" style is what Allstars fan Josh Manning
says gets everyone at the show "pumped."
"It's a good mix between dancing and crowd interaction,"
Manning, 22, said he's been to eight or nine Allstars
shows. He first got acquainted with the band when they re-
leased a live album with Vida Blue, former Phish keyboardist
Page McConnell's solo project. The UF senior says his favor-
ite bands are the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd and Bob Marley,
and he plans to attend the Allstar show this weekend.
"They're definitely unique and everybody is there to have
a good time," he said.
Doors open at 10 p.m. on Saturday and admission is $8.

Frisky bedroom resolutions
T his spring, as days grow warm; libi-
dos awaken from winter doldrums.
- There's a newfound enthusiasm to
get up, go to class and "get 'er done." Or,
more appropriately, get iT done. .
So, whether you're a contented "other
half" or a serial bed-hopper, I'd
like you to repeat after me: "In Maghan
2006, I1 resolve to...
...have more orgasms." Studies
have shown an orgasm gap be-
tween men and women, especially
those college-aged, fewer than 25
percent of these women reported

heard that knowing what pleases us is the
first step in allowing our lover to learn, so it's
time, folks. Only about 10 percent of women
aged 18 to 29 say they "she-bop" at least once
a week, according to a 1999 article in the
Journal of the American Medical Association.
So, by my calculations, that means either 90
percent have incredibly satisfying lovers, or
they haven't perfected the art of getting jiggy
...try something new with someone
else." This could range from meet-
flcDowell ing someone you talked to online
to enacting a fantasy. For those
who are single and searching, or
for those stuck in a five-minute
routine, this could forge a new
path to orgasmic bliss.
...protect myself and get honest
about STDs." It's a lot easier (and
cheaper) on one side of the fence than the'
other, and the worst part is that sometimes
there's no going back. And, finally...
...revel in the unknown." I'll let you de-
cide this one.
And remember sex is a rough job, but

University offers classical music that won't strain your wallet
At a time when New Year's

"The UF School of Music and
UF Performing Arts provide a very
active experience for students who
are interested in listening to mu-
sic," said John Duff, director of the
School of Music.
Student ensembles such as the
UF Symphony Orchestra and UF
Symphonic Band perform through-
out the year for free, usually at the
University Auditorium. Solo recit-
als by students and faculty also oc-
cur frequently and also are free.
Though such concerts are
well-attended by music students
and performers' friends, the gen-
eral student public is usually not
strongly represented, Duff said.

discounted student tickets -avail-

certs at the Phillips Center for the

More students are
taking advantage of the 5
tickets, but the response
is not nearly what it
could be, said Michael
Blachly, director of UF
"We need to help introduce
students to the rich possibilities of
classical music," he said.
Andrew Pomiak, a biology
sophomore, has noticed the short-
age of students at classical concerts,
oodwin but that doesn't stop him
L from trying to convince
friends to go with him.
"I took a few friends to
see the Kronos Quartet
at the Phillips Center last
Spring. That was amaz-
ing," he said.
There is a wealth of concert op-
portunities and it is worth going
to experience what some of your
tuition money is buying in the way
of classical music.
"The concert offerings avail-
able to a student at the University
of Florida will round out the
education beyond the classroom,"
Blachly said. "Classical music pro-
vides a way to support culture and
make society great."
Having a good time, learning
something, supporting culture
and helping make society great all
in one night? Sounds like a pretty
good resolution to me.

prison, the National Justice Project focuses
on freeing innocent people based on biased
juries, false testimonies and faulty evidence.
The ABC show premiered Jan. 6, so there's
still time to get hooked.

around Earl Hickey, a man with a sketchy
past trying to make amends for

Backup Dickey leaves football team

Bowden stays focused
* LOSING STARTING ROLE TO
FRESHMAN NOT AN ISSUE
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
This was supposed to be Depree
Bowden's year in the spotlight.
But heading into tonight's tilt with
Kentucky at the O'Connell Center, Bowden
is seventh on the team in scoring average
and hasn't started since the third game of
After spending her entire freshman
campaign coming off the bench last season,
the guard earned a starting job when the
Gators (13-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference)
opened this season in November.
In the women's basketball media guide,
strength and conditioning coordinator
Karin Werth said Bowden had the best off-
season workout discipline of any player on
the roster. Then, along came Sha Brooks.
In two starts at the season-opening
Seton Hall Classic tournament, Brooks, a
5-foot-7 freshman, earned a starting spot
by leading the team in points and minutes
in both wins.
Bowden started alongside Brooks for
those games, while senior point guard
Sarah Lowe attended Rhodes Scholarship
interviews. When Lowe returned, Brooks
took a seat on the bench with the rest of
the five-member freshman class but not
In the third game of the season at
Florida State, Bowden started but played
just 13 minutes and didn't score.
Brooks came off the bench with a spark,
scoring 14 points and dishing out five as-
sists in double the time in the Gators' 82-76
loss to the Seminoles.
Since then, Brooks, not Bowden, has
been the underclassman joining four se-
niors in pregame introductions.
"Coach [Carolyn Peck] knows who
she wants to start and who's best for the
position," Bowden said. "I just had to keep
my mind straight and continue to be an
offensive threat and do what I can do on
Bowden's attitude toward the change
has been indicative of the attitude of the
"Every basketball player wants to be
one that starts, but I think that the focus
of this team, and one of the things that I'm
most proud of, is the unselfishness -of this
team," Peck said. "The players on our bas-
ketball team just want to win."
"Coach [Carolyn Peck] knows
who she wants to start and
who's best for. the position. I just
had to keep my mind straight
and continue to be an offensive
threat and do what I can do on
There's no animosity between Brooks
and Bowden, though the players didn't
even talk about the lineup change.
"It's no big deal for us," Brooks said.
"She pushes me hard in practice, and she
'roots me on when I'm on the court. And I
do the same for her."
Added Bowden: "She earned it. She re-
ally, really stepped up."
While Brooks has flourished as a starter,
Bowden has re-acclimated to coming off
the bench and proved to be an asset in UF's
final non-conference game Jan. 2.
In the rematch with FSU in Gainesville,
the former starter scored a career-high 15
points and added four steals as the Gators
"It's not who starts, but who finishes,"
Bowden said. "I'm not going to quit now.
I'm ready to come off the bench and do
whatever my team needs to win."

"We were definitely in the game," said Mississippi
State guard Jamont Gordon, who finished with a team-
high 17 points. "We came out and had a couple turn-
overs, had a couple fouls and they were able to get out
on top, and we couldn't get the lead back."
With Horford limited and Brewer and guard Lee
Humphrey stuck on the bench with foul trouble,
Donovan relied heavily on backup centers Chris
Richard and Adrian Moss as well as guard Walter
Hodge and the ailing Huertas.
With those players on the bench, Taurean Green,
who scored a game-high 20 points including five 3-
pointers, came over to Donovan with a question.
"He's such a good kid. He came over to me in the
middle of the first half and he said, 'Am I shooting too
much?'" Donovan said. "I said, 'No, who else is going
to shoot? We've got no one else on the floor. Everyone
is sitting next to me. If you're open, shoot it.'"
After playing just 7 minutes during the Gators. win
against Georgia, on Saturday, Moss responded well,
scoring 8 points in 19 minutes.
Despite the Gators' sloppy play, the game still goes
down as another victory.
"I call it a win, that's -the only thing that matters,"
Moss said. "What's it going to say in the win-loss col-
umn? Iffy win, but it's a win? Chalk it up as another
win. We've still got zero in the loss column."

sense to allow students to occupy those seats. Ticket holders
paid for them, and if they would rather watch a "King of the
Hill" rerun than attend a game featuring the No. 2 team in
the country, then they have every right to ensure those seats
remain vacant. Regulations are a nifty little obstacle, huh?
In all honesty, there was little the O'Connell Center staff
could do to alleviate the situation Wednesday night. The
Gators are good, really good. And the students finally-care; -
prospect. But after nearly a decade of
playing two sports, he still has plenty
of catching up to do.
"I think Gavin's physical athletic
gifts are very apparent," said Baseball
America college writer Will Kimmey.
"The things he mostly needs to work
on will come from playing the game
and getting more repetitions. This
move will obviously help him there.
"Still, he hasn't had the fall [to prac-
tice], and just because he quit football
doesn't mean he'll immediately hit 50
or 80 points better. You might not see
his upshot this year, even though he
might get drafted. It might take three
or four years. Guys on his team have
specialized in baseball for 10 to 12
years. He's always had to play both
"There is an excitement around," said guard 1.ee
Humphrey, whose 13 points Wednesday guarantees roughly
57 more crushes from local 14-year-old girls. "I'll go any-
where to a restaurant or walk anywhere on campus and
someone will come to me and say, 'We really enjoy watch-
ing you guys play.' It makes you feel like you're playing the
game the right way. It makes you feel appreciated."
The sad thing is that it's taken a high national ranking
to awake the campus folk. Home games usually feature
enough empty seats to house most of the Kansan popula-
.tion.. Fortunately. for the Gators, they are finally drawing
enough fans to honestly say, "There's no place like home."
