med plans

* UF IS CONCERNED WITH UCF AND
FIU'S PLANS FOR MEDICAL SCHOOLS.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Two state universities have aspirations to
build medical schools, but UF officials worry
such projects would divert state money away
from the flagship university.
In November, Florida International
University and the University. of Central
Florida submitted plans to the Board of
Governors, which presides over the State
University System. The board, which meets
at UF on Thursday, will vote on.the proposals
in March.
State If approved by the governors,
News the proposals will be sent to the
Legislature.
Both UCF and FIU have
raised millions of dollars to. support their
medical school ambitions.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said a medical
school at FIU or UCF would not be the boon
to the state that UF's medical college is.
In order to produce local physicians, a
school needs a residency program to keep
graduates in the community, she said.
Doctors typically set up practices in the areas
where they completed their residencies.
UCF in Orlando and FIU in Miami have
established partnerships with local hospi-
tals. When the schools proposed their ideas
to the board in November, residency pro-
grams were among the board's prerequisites.
Florida Hospital and Orlando Regional
Healthcare have collectively donated $2.5
million to UCF's medical school effort. Other
private donors have contributed over $20
million.
FIU is establishing a residency program at
Mercy Hospital in Miami, which the federal
government will pay for, FIU Provost Ronald
Berkman said.
FIU also has received $20 million in pri-
vate funding for its medical school.
Fouke said the state should help every
school achieve its mission, but there's "not
enough money in the state of Florida for ev-
ery university to have everything."

Accent brings star of 'Rent' to UF


By ERIN CHALFANT
Alligator Writer

When 22-year-old Anthony Rapp's agent.
first told him about the idea of a rock opera
called "Rent," Rapp was skeptical.
"They can be pretty dumb," said Rapp, 34,
who went on to star in the Tony Award-win-
ning musical as Mark Cohen.
But working at Starbucks was not the
height of his career aspirations, so he went
to the New York Theatre Workshop and
performed "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M.
to audition for the part.
The song is also the title of the first chapter
of his book, "Without You: AMemoir of Love,
Loss and the Musical Rent," to be released
early February.
Rapp will discuss the background of his

paid $9,000, including all
S ^ -. travel expenses, for the
event, said Evan Tyroler,
S chairman of Accent, UF's
student-run speaker's
bureau.
Accent chose Rapp
Rapp as their first speaker this
year because they wanted
a pop culture icon who was different, said
Tyroler.
Accent decided on Rapp because students
want to hear about "Rent" and Rapp's experi-
ences from "A Beautiful Mind," "Road Trip"

and "Dazed and Confused," said Tyroler.
"And they want to hear about his new
book," he said.
The book is meant to offer comfort and
provide insight into the pain of loss. Rapp
said he hopes to make the speech informal,
with a question-and-answer format.
He wrote the book to highlight and come
to terms with a three-year period from 1994
to 1997 when his mother, "Rent" writer
Jonathan Larson and two of his friends died.
Rapp said his mother was a champion of his,
and he wanted to honor her after her struggle
with cancer.
"Writing the book was one of the most
challenging, difficult, darkest hours of my
life," Rapp said..

UF RESEARCH

Robot may provide new way to X-ray


Patients will be able to move around


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Surrounded by eight high-
speed video cameras, the robot
is bolted onto a pedestal in one
of UF's engineering labs.
If this mechanical creation
were fully functional, the
room would need to be lined


with lead.
They call it the GatorRay.
For more than a year, a team
of UF medical and engineering
students led by associate pro-
fessor Scott Banks has been
working on this robot.
When it is completed, the
team hopes its invention will
be a new way to get X-ray im-


Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff
Scott Banks is a UF engineer working on GatorRay, a new robot
that will generate X-ray video of human bodies in motion.


ages of the human body.
"The irony with current
technology is that bones and
joints are there for us to move
- and the first thing they tell
you to do is hold still," Banks
said.
With the GatorRay, patients
with orthopedic injuries or dis-
eases such as a dislocated
joint or arthritis will no lon-
ger be confined to a radiology
table, Banks said. They will be
able to move around.
In a demonstration of the
GatorRay, graduate student
Chris Lightcap used neoprene
and Velcro straps to attach a
red light to his outer thigh.
The array of cameras around
the room would use it as a ref-
erence point, feeding real-time
data into a computer control-
ling the robotic arm. The result
would be a diagnostic instru-
ment that can follow human
movement while shooting X-
ray video of patients' bodies.
Because of the harmful ef-
fects of X-ray radiation, no X-
ray device will be attached to
the GatorRay until it is moved
into a facility with the neces-
sary shielding, Banks said.
Mike Moser, a UF ortho-
pedic surgeon working with
Banks on the project, thinks
the robot system will be useful
to surgeons because it would
allow doctors to visualize
joints in motion, according
to his statement in a press
release.
In addition to making
things easier for doctors to
diagnose medical conditions,
the GatorRay will also benefit
patients.
"Being stuck in a tube is
not a pleasant experience


- especially for a long period
of time," said Will Harrell, a
freshman finance major at UF
who was recently scanned by
an MRI machine for a back
problem.
The robot itself is a
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries,
Ltd. articulated arm robot
that was modified by Banks
and his students to move with
more precision.
"The irony with current
technology is that bones
and joints are there for
us to move and the
first thing they tell you
to do is hold still."
Scott Banks
UF associate professor

But to be functional in a
hospital setting, the GatorRay
needs to be even more precise.
This would require more fund-
ing, an issue that has been the
project's major obstacle, Banks
said.
While the likelihood of
a commercial version of the
GatorRay is still a complete
unknown, Banks hopes to
have a functional unit oper-
ating at UF's Orthopaedics
and Sports Medicine Institute
within the next two years.
According to the Bone and
Joint Decade, an organization
that targets the care of people
with orthopedic conditions,
more than half of all injuries
are to the musculoskeletal
system.
The Bone and Joint Decade
also estimates that musculosk-
eletal ailments cost the United
States $254 billion every year
in medical expenses and lost
productivity.


Big snakes


are stolen

By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

Two large exotic snakes were
stolen from an Eastside High School
science classroom late Saturday.
The snakes, an Argentine boa con-
strictor and African ball python, were
taken from a portable building used
as an ecology classroom, according to
a police release.
"We feel that a student took the
snakes or that a student told someone
about the location of the snakes,"
Alachua County spokesman Keith
Faulk said.
However, Faulk said one of the sto-
len snakes is due for a meal and may
get aggressive.
Each snake is worth between $200
and $500. Whoever
UFF took the snakes did
Research not steal the most
aggressive snake, a
Malaysian.green tree python worth
approximately $700, Faulk said.
The python is known to bite and
leave a nasty wound, Faulk said, add-
ing that "someone had to know not to
mess with it."
Police believe whoever stole the
snakes knew them well because they
avoided the most aggressive snake.
The stolen snakes are large but
not poisonous. The African ball py-
thon grows up to 6 feet, while the
Argentine boa constrictor grows up
to 10 feet.
"Just like any other wild creature,
you can't count on their actions,"
Faulk said. "These things get hungry,
and they tend to be aggressive."
A $200 reward is being offered to
anyoi with information leading to
the recovery of the snakes.
If anyone has information about
the break-in, contact Alachua County
Sheriff's office at (352) 955-1818 or call
anonymously at (392) 372-STOP.

FSU hosts Law Day


for Gator undergrads


By BOBBY KEITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Florida-Florida State ri-
valry has turned legal.
FSU's College of Law will host
a recruiting event Friday called
Gator Law Day, specifically de-
signed to recruit UF undergrads
with law school on their minds.
Gator Law Day will be from
11:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the FSU
Law School in Tallahassee. The
event is free.
This is the second year in a row
that FSU has held an event spe-
cifically targeting UF's law school
hopefuls.
But this year, Gator Law
Day is co-sponsored by the FSU
LitiGators, a new student group
of about 40 UF alumni and Gator
fans who attend FSU's College of
Law.
Gator Law Day attendees will
have the chance to meet faculty
members and admissions profes-
sionals, have lunch with UF alum-
ni and other current law students
and receive college tours. The
LitiGators will also hold a social
After the events.
"The unique thing about [the
LitiGators] is that we're a Gator
alumni group at FSU," LitiGators
President Ben Gibson said. "And
there are more UF undergrads at
FSU than any other college in the
country."
About 17 percent of FSU's first-
year law students are UF alumni,
according to a press release.
Gibson, a 21-year-old UF
alumnus, said the LitiGators exist


primarily to recruit UF under-
graduates for the FSU College of
Law and help accepted students
get settled in Tallahassee.
The FSU. College of Law
jumped 11 spots in the 2006 rank-
ings for the best law schools in the
country by U.S. News and World
Report, according to the FSU
College of Law's Web site.
"The unique thing about
[the LitiGators] is that
we're a Gator alumni group
at FSU. And there are more
UF undergrads at FSU than
any other college in the
country."
Ben Gibson
LitiGators president

This means that FSU is now
the second-highest ranked law
school in Florida at 56, after UF's
Levin College of Law at 41.
The number of UF undergrads
studying law at FSU has always
been high, according to Gibson,
but no one had taken the initia-
tive to create a pro-UF group
until this school year. Several stu-
dents noticed a need for a group
like this, he said.
"It's nice to know that the
Gator Nation is even represented
here at FSU," Gibson said.
For more information call
the College of Law's Office
of Admissions and Records
at (850) 644-3787, or visit
www.law.fsu.edu/events by to-
day to register.

Hiral Gohil takes algae samples (right) at

fessor Andy Ogram is using the samples to
study anaerobic bacteria that decompose
pesticides, and his findings may help restore
Lake Apopka near Winter Garden. Sewage
and pesticide runoff from nearby farms and
towns has harmed the lake and its wildlife
since the 1920s.

More schools,


less money

SCHOOL, from page 1

Currently, UF, Florida State University
and the University of South Florida are
the only public universities with medical
schools.
"There's only so much money in the
state," Fouke said, "and so if money goes
to these activities, there will by definition
be less money for everyone else, includ-
ing the University of Florida."
She added: "If we're going to make it
to the Top 10, we're going to need every
resource that we can garner."
UF is not the only school that dreams
of national prestige.
Officials from UCF and FIU both said
helping their doctor-deficient communi-
ties was their main goal, but they also
hope. to improve their status as public
research institutions.
"Of course a medical school does, no
matter what anyone says, add to the pres-
tige of your institution. Clearly, medical
.schools also bring in a lot of research dol-
lars," UCF spokesman Tom Evelyn said.

Fair offers chance to travel


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Study Abroad Fair on
Wednesday will allow stu-
dents who are considering a
trip abroad the chance to flip
through glossy catalogues and
connect with students who
have visited foreign countries.
UF's International Center
will hold the fair in the Reitz
Union Colonnade from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m. The center offers
more than 60 programs.
Overwhelming decisions,
such as where to travel, what
to study, how to pay and who
to venture with, will be at
the front of students' minds,
said Katherine Hawes, study
abroad fair coordinator.
"I would encourage people
to start at the welcome table
if they don't want to wander
around," she said.
There, students can grab a
handout with a list of detailed
information indicating where


specific tables are located.
Six staff members will assist
students with questions about
the study abroad program,.
scholarships and financial aid.
"Our trips fill up like hot-
cakes, especially in the
Summer when students
have more time off."
Anne Muracciole
UF International Center
assistant

"Start now, even if you'
think you won't go for a year
or two," Hawes said. "You
will save a lot of time when
you make your decision in the
future."
Thirty of the programs
are sponsored and organized
through UF, and the other 30
tables will be manned by col-
leges and independent compa-
nies from around the country.
According to statistics,


more than 2,000 UF students
will go abroad this year, and
Spain will be the most popular
destination, Hawes said.
Anne Muracciole, an
International Center assistant,
said she has the best job in the
world.
"Students come into the of-
fice and ask me where they can
go," she said. "I tell them thou-
sands of places and different
opportunities, and they leave
with a smile on their face."
Some programs seem to go
faster then others.
'"Our trips fill up like
hotcakes, especially in the
Summer when students have
more time off," she said.
Students commit to a par-
ticular country to learn and
practice a familiar language
or to see textbook photos come
alive, Muracciole said.
"I think we have a great
program," she said. "I wish I
had these options when I was
in school."

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 24,2006


Just to get by

Rising costs highlight

financial adversity
UT is in trouble.
This year, the university is going to have to pay about
$6 million more for energy than it did last year.
And nobody knows where the money is going to come
from.
This troubling news comes from Ed Poppell, the UF vice
president for Administrative Affairs.
"We went into the year with deficits, and this is just exacer-
bating that situation," Poppell said.
Poppell expects UF to have to cut down on maintenance to
be able to pay this year's projected bill.
The big story isn't that UF will have to pay for higher gas
prices, but that the university apparently lacks any kind of fi-
nancial safety net.
Instead of stashing some money away in case of a fiscal
emergency, UF appears to be operating right at the margin of
sustainability.
When officials talk about cutting down on maintenance so
that they can keep the lights on, we sense financial distress.
And let's face it: If some of the university's buildings were
maintained any less, they'd probably collapse.
News of the administration's fiscal woes comes just weeks
after Kiplinger's Personal Finance ranked UF as the second-best
value for colleges in the nation.
We like to see our school get some positive recognition, but
not when it means having to attend class by candlelight.
It is a sad fact, but UF is starved for cash. Tuition is simply
too low.
The problem of a piddling tuition manifests itself else-
where.
Class sizes skyrocket. University faculties are understaffed.
Student activities get cut.
So it's dear that the state Legislature needs to raise tuition.
Unfortunately, any such tuition hike could cause the Florida
Bright Futures Scholarship Program to spiral out of control.
The program pays the college tuitions of all in-stat-eFlorida
students who meet certain academic criteria.
But the program is overworked. David Denslow, a UF eco-
nomics professor and local expert on Bright Futures, has said
"[students] have to be more or less literate" to take advantage
of the program.
Yet few changes to the Bright Futures admission criteria
have been enacted since the program came into existence.
And Theresa Antworth, director of the state scholarship and
grant program, said last November, "I think [legislators] are
pretty committed to the current standard."
We think we know why.
Raising the qualifications for Bright Futures is tremendously
unpopular with voters. Calls within the state Legislature to cut
the program are routinely met with protests by students and
parents.
For many students, the scholarships provide the only means
to go to college.
But voters need to evaluate the true cost of Bright Futures.
In this case, there is a direct trade-off between sending more
students to college and making sure those colleges have ample
funding.
UF appears to be stretched to the breaking point. At least for
the time being, we should forget about being a Top 10 public
university.
But the problem can't wait-forever. Soon, legislators and vot-
ers will be forced to make a decision.
They can raise the Bright Futures qualifications to help pay
for a UF tuition hike.
Or they can do nothing and watch as their cherished state
universities wither away to naught.

Iran only a distant
o hear George Bush, Hillary Clinton and The New
York Times tell it, Iran is a powder keg waiting to blow.
Its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is a madman.
Terrorism and anti-Semitism are its national pastimes. The
Persian national dish is greasy and uses too much onion.
And now, in defiance of the International Atomic Energy
Agency, Iran has reopened its nuclear research facility in
Natanz.
Can mushroom clouds over Tel Aviv, New York or even
Gainesville be far off?
Actually, yes, they can. According to a National
Intelligence Estimate issued last year, Iran is at least a decade
away from building a nuclear bomb.
It has neither the fissile uranium needed for weapons pro-
duction, nor the 1,500 or so centrifuges needed to produce
that uranium. And experts doubt whether Iran's missiles
could reach Israel, let alone the United States.
As for the dreaded "suitcase bomb": first-generation
nuclear warheads, like the ones North Korea is suspected
of building, typically weigh somewhere between 1,000 and
2,000 pounds. That's a pretty big suitcase.
So why are pundits and elected officials from both parties
Stalking about Iran like the apocalypse is at hand?
In a word: politics. In a speech last weekend, Karl Rove
outlined the Republicans' strategy for this year's congres-
sional elections. Not surprisingly, it will revolve around
national security.
The only problem?
Midterm elections are often referenda on the president,
and Bush's credibility on national security issues is at an all-
time low.
In a poll this month, 47 percent of respondents said the
war in Iraq was a mistake, and 48 said American troops
should return home as soon as possible. And a group of
journalists, including prominent supporters of the war, has
sued the administration over its undeclared wiretapping
program.


t problem for U.S.
Jake Ramsey Tellingly, Rove defended domestic
Speaking Out spying in his speech, calling it a neces-
sary measure in wartime. The White
House has justified torture, secret
prisons and the Patriot Act in similar terms.
But with the war in Iraq winding down and Sept. 11
fading further into memory, Republicans need a new crisis
to sustain the war mood. They certainly don't want to talk
about Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff.
And that's where Iran comes in.
To be sure, the prospect of a nuclear Iran is frightening.
For one thing, the mullahs in Tehran have closer links to ter-
rorists than Saddam Hussein ever did.
But it's a distant threat, somewhere between al-Qaeda
and global warming. And despite this month's setbacks,
there is still ample time to negotiate a settlement not that
you'd know it from the administration's statements.
Last Thursday, Vice President Dick Cheney hinted that a
"military option" was still on the table. A cynic might even
tell you that White House press secretary Scott McClellan
wanted negotiations to fail when he told reporters, "We're
long past the point of talk" with Iran.
(I am that cynic, and that is what I'm telling you.)
Unfortunately, some leading Democrats, desperate not
to seem weak on national -security, are playing catch-up.
Hillary Clinton criticized the administration for not being
hawkish enough on Iran, no mean feat.
But both sides are playing a very dangerous game.
Veiled threats like Cheney's can only provoke Iran and
poison future negotiations.
Members of both parties who would rather not repeat the
Iraq experience should take note: As the president said in one
of his more poetic utterances, "Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice ... We can't get fooled again."
He didn't really understand the concept.
Let's hope the voters can.

New Orleans plan should be discarded


Fhe poor people in New Orleans are
still drowning. They are still scream-
Ling for help. And the government on
every level is still ruining their lives.
On Jan. 11, the city's rebuilding
commission presented an indecent pro-
posal. According to reporter Gary Rivlin,
"Residents would not be permitted to
-move back into the hardest-hit neighbor-
hoods about two-thirds of the city,
including more than half its homeowners
for at least four months. During that
time, leaders of each neighborhood would
have to submit to a citywide planning body
a recovery plan that would have to be ap-
proved before residents would be allowed
back."
If this planning body deems the neigh-
borhood's plan unacceptable, the city will
use eminent domain to seize the property.
Essentially, the commission is saying it will
tear thousands of people from their roots in
New Orleans because the people in their
neighborhoods are too poor or too dead to
rebuild adequately.
John Beckham, the consultant who
devised the plan, has a dream. He told an
audience in New Orleans to "imagine the
best city in the world" that could have "a
park in every neighborhood."


Jason Levitt It just so happens
Speaking Out his dream city will
have fewer black
people than before,
and the parks will be built on their confis-
cated land.
"They're saying, 'Let's make this a
beautiful park.' What they think no one
lives here?" Talmadge Wall Mead, a New
Orleans resident, said to The Associated
Press.
Sue Sperry of the New Orleans
Preservation Resource Center said, "If this
plan goes forward as it is, many people's
worst fears about our African-American
heritage and population will come true.
It's almost like it will be extinguished from
this earth."
In Mayor Ray Nagin's terms, the city of
New Orleans will lose a lot of its chocolate
flavor.
It was Nagin who appointed a slew of
businessmen to the rebuilding commis-
sion. One of the most prominent members
is Joseph Canizaro, a big-time developer
in the Big Easy and chair of the First Bank
and Trust. Perhaps more importantly,
Canizaro is the second-highest soft-money
contributor in the country, according to
www.opensecrets.org.


In 2004, Canizaro spent $366,000, of
which 97 percent went to the Republican
Party. It looks like the type of cronyism and
collusion between government and busi-
ness that.is typical of politics in general and
the Bush administration in particular.
But the poor in New Orleans are looking
fiercely defiant. The proposal "drew loud
'boos' and shouts of anger from residents
who crowded a downtown hotel meeting
room for its announcement," according to
Reuters.
Carolyn Parker, a resident of one of the
hardest hit areas in New Orleans, told the
urban planning panel, 'Over my dead
body. I didn't die with Katrina."
Another resident, Harvey Bender,
threatened Canizaro and the rest of the
commission with "a baby Iraq" if the city
tries to take their land.
The city of New Orleans and rest of
America must hear these cries loud and
dear. New Orleans must not be engineered
according to the grand designs of business
leaders and Bush's politically connected
cronies. If this proposal moves forward, the'
residents of New Orleans will have every
right to dig into the mud and fight.

science senior.

Lete, to the Editor
Krishna lunches provide fair meals
On Monday, David Gruskin wrote
about his experience with the Hare
Krishna buffet. Unfortunately, he did
not have enough money for the recom-
mended donation of $3 and consequently
never received any food. Whether writ-
ing under a biased misperception of the
Krishna Lunch service or with legitimate
concern for legality, Mr. Gruskin furthered
his editorial by criticizing the Krishnas for
"selling food on UF's campus without a
vendor's license."
I question why one would donate to a
service that one considers to be threat to
public safety or to be operating illegally.
I have personally obtained a Krishna
Lunch having only $2. The Krishnas are
generally a loving and trusting commu-
nity, not one obsessed with enforcing their
recommended donation.
I hope that no one is discouraged from
enjoying a Krishna Lunch, Mr. Gruskin
included, after Monday's letter. Krishna
Lunches are a delicious, inexpensive alter-
native to other on-campus options.

SG candidates are unclear


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
lewis@alligator.org

Two weeks before Student Government parties
must finalize their executive tickets, party represen-
tatives say they still don't know which parties will
actually be running candidates.
Additionally, nonmembers of any party have
publicly emerged as contenders for SG's top three
positions.
"I'm still talking about it with my friends and
family and trying to figure out what's going to be
the best thing for the student body and myself,"
said Student Senate President John Boyles, who
is considered a likely candidate for Student Body
president.
Former Senate President Diane Kassim and Sen.
Jared Hemandez, both considered likely presiden-
tial candidates for this Spring's election, also have
yet to ally themsleves with parties.
"I can promise that if I decide to run, I will not be
the puppet of some other system," Hemandez said.
This Spring's race will see at least nine registered
parties, although some party representatives said
their organizations may not slate candidates.
Sen. Josh Weiss, who was elected on a Gator
Party ticket, recently registered a new party called
Vision but said he is unsure of his plans for the or-
ganization.
"It's not something where I have a slate and
platform ready to go," he said. "It's just a party that
I registered in case I had to use it."


MacKenzie Moritz, who ran for Student Body
president in Spring 2005 with the Progress Party,
also registered a new party called Engage but said
he could not comment on its details.
"I'm scheduled to graduate in May, so my in-
volvement in Student Government is rapidly dying
down," he said.
"I can promise that if I decide to run,
I will not be the puppet of some other
system."
Jared Hernandez
UF student senator

Some older party names, such as Impact and
Access, have also been registered for this election.
Former Sen. Ansell Fernandez registered the
Access name two weeks ago, but said he wasn't
sure whether his party will run an executive ticket
or merge with other parties before the election.
Although the three most likely candidates for
Student Body president have not declared party
allegiance, each potential contender said that they
hope to continue serving students whether or not
they run for president.
"SG is here for the student body, and I want
every student to see the benefit of their [Activity &
Service] Fees," Boyles said. "When I'm done with
UF, I never want to be involved in politics again."

Rapp to discuss, sign his new book


RAPP, from page 1


Writing poses a new challenge, different
from that of singing or acting, because it is in
some ways more personal, yet also allows him
some opportunity to separate himself from the
actual product, he said.
Josephine Huang, a 19-year-old theatre
major, has seen "Rent" live five times and
can no longer count the number of times she
has seen the movie. She said she will attend
Rapp's speech Wednesday, and she expects to
glean some advice from his viewpoint as a suc-
cessful actor.
"Since he's a theater guy, they all tend to be
really friendly," she said. "So I expect him to
be open and friendly."
Rapp, who starred at age 6 in his first role as
the Cowardly Lion from "The Wizard of Oz" at
summer camp, said he always tries to make his


characters personal.
"My goal as an actor is to expose all aspects
of being human," he said.
He finds inspiration for his characters in
movies and plays and by watching how other
successful actors approach their roles.
For example, he looks to Jodie Foster and
Anthony Hopkins in "The Silence of the
Lambs" for their portrayal of complex char-
acters.
Rapp said he was taken by their ability to be
completely naked in their roles; they weren't
thinking whether or not the audience would
like them but just trying to reveal the truth of
the moment.
"They were not concerned with being at-
tractive," he said.
Rapp, who grew up in Joliet, Ill. as the
youngest of three children, said he knew he
wanted to be an actor from a young age.
"I always felt good doing it," he said. "I got
good feedback, and it felt natural."

UF ACADEMICS

Professor calls for gaming major


By KAITLIN O'FARRILL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students aren't just playing video
games anymore they're creating
them.
The video game industry is sky-
rocketing, but the UF Computer and
Information Science and Engineering
department has not caught up with the
times, according to one professor.
UF focuses on teaching students
the fundamentals of computer pro-
gramming instead of just how to use
the tools to build video games, said
J6rg Peters, a UF computer graphics
professor.
"Through the digital arts and sci-
ences major, there is the infrastructure
to teach video game programming,"
Peters said. "But it needs an extra
push."
Since 1996, computer and video
game software sales in the United
States have more than doubled to reach
$7.3 billion in 2004, according to the
Entertainment Software Association
Web site.
To address this growth, the


University of Central Florida partnered
with game publisher Electronic Arts
and opened the Florida Interactive
Entertainment Academy in August.
But Peters said he feels there are
still too few colleges offering specific
courses for video game production.
"We have not tried to follow a
fad by offering more majors."
Sartaj Sahni
Chairman of the Computer and
Information Science and Engineering
department

Although he taught game pro-
gramming at UF three years ago,
Peters said it is difficult to find faculty
with the knowledge and time for the
course.
"The books are, to my taste, insuf-
ficient," he said, noting that this was
part of his reason for no longer teach-
ing. the subject. "It is currently not
being offered because the people who
know are too busy."
In one of the current UF gaming
projects, a surgeon and a computer
graphics professor are working to


build an interactive medical teaching
program. Similar educational proj-
ects will be the future of video game
programming beyond entertainment,
Peters said.
"There is still a huge market for
education because people outside of
computer science do not dare to touch
such tools," he said.
Sartaj Sahni, chairman of the
Computer and Information Science
and Engineering department, said UF
covers the basic elements of computer
science and has the flexibility so stu-
dents can pursue a variety of careers,
including video game production.
"We have not tried to follow a fad
by offering more majors," Sahni said.
When seeking a job in the gaming
industry, graduates must draw the at-
tention of companies to their abilities
through portfolios built in school and
personal endeavors.
"They don't know that you are out
there," said Robert Bruckart, president
of UF's chapter of the Association of
Digital Art and Media. "The strength
is to make yourself noticed and
search."

Commission works to improve UF-city relations


* COMMISSIONERS AIM TO
LURE STUDENTS DOWNTOWN.

By SARAH FESTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A plan to transform downtown
Gainesville into a friendlier place
for students was discussed at a City
Commission meeting Monday.
Commissioner Warren Nielsen
presented ideas to renovate
downtown Gainesville after visit-
ing the University of Virginia in
Charlottesville inDecember. Nielsen
portrayed Charlottesville as a model
for what Gainesville's downtown


could be.
Charlottesville, also a college
town, has its downtown area lo-
cated 12 blocks from the University
of Virginia campus. UF is located
approximately 13 blocks from Main
Street.
Nielsen said adding small movie
theaters, bookstores, cafes and
antique shops would lure more
students downtown. Nielsen also
suggested making downtown more
pedestrian-friendly and pointed out
that Charlottesville's downtown
area features a street where only pe-
destrians are allowed to walk.
City leaders have previously
visited other universities to get ideas


for improving-the relationship be-
tween the city and UF.
In 2004, Nielsen and Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan arranged a trip for
approximately 40 Gainesville and
UF officials, as
well as students
and community
members, to visit
Yale University
and learn how to
better integrate
college life and
Nielsen the community.
Although the
City Commission did not vote to
take action on the ideas, commis-
sioners agreed that plans should be


made for downtown renovations.
The City Commission also dis-
cussed cutting down traffic by con-
necting city employees to the work-
place through the Internet instead of
commuting.
Commissioner Ed Braddy pro-
posed using Telework Consortium,
a nonprofit, federally funded orga-
nization that helps employees get
work done from home by using on-
line video to meet with co-workers.
The City Commission voted to
allow the city manager and utility
manager to continue working with
Telework.
Gainesville has a good chance of
succeeding because of "the young,


thriving population that isn't wary
of new technology," said Telework
general manager Rita Mace
Walston.
"I would love to see Gainesville
maximize its infrastructure and
become a leader in 'telework,'"
Walston said.
The City Commission also
agreed to co-sponsor LifeSouth's
Five Points of Life marathon sched-
uled for Feb. 19.
The marathon's purpose is to
raise awareness of blood shortages,
collect money for LifeSouth and
promote healthy living, said Karen
Rhodenizer, spokeswoman for Five
Points of Life.

Improved Dotson earns honor


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer

She's inexperienced, unher-
alded and undersized.
She's freshman forward
Marshae Dotson, the UF women's
basketball team's new offensive
threat.
Dotson was named
Southeastern Conference
Women's Basketball Freshman
of the Week on Monday, joining
teammate Sha Brooks in earning
the honor this season.
The Columbus, Ohio, na-
tive averaged a team-leading 15
points and seven rebounds in two
games last week UF wins at
Mississippi and at home against
then-No. 19 Vanderbilt.
Coming into the season,
guards LaToya Bullard and
Brooks overshadowed Dotson
in UF's largest freshman class in
program history.
But UF coach Carolyn Peck
knew that Dotson came in tal-
ented and versatile.
"In watching her with her
AAU team, she had the ability
to score away from the basket as
well as underneath," Peck said.
"One of the biggest things is her
nose for the ball. Rebounding is
something that just comes natu-
ral for her. She has great timing.
She's a quick jumper, and she
plays hard."


Bullard left the team due
to personal reasons before the
season began, and Brooks, who
captured Freshman of the Week
honors twice before league play,
has not kept up with her torrid
early-season pace.

"In watching [Dotson] with
her AAU team, she had
the ability to score away
from the'basket as well as
underneath. One of the
biggest things is her nose
for the ball. Rebounding is
something that just comes
natural for her. She has
great timing. She's a quick
jumper, and she plays
hard."
Carolyn Peck
UF women's basketball coach

Meanwhile, Dotson has
steadily improved, gaining more
minutes in her first year while
leading the SEC with a 67.9 field-
goal percentage in conference
games.
Despite going up against play-
ers 3 or 4 inches taller than her,
the 5-foot-11 Dotson has proven
a presence in the post.
"I think she's a ball player,"
Peck said. "She does a good job


of using her body to get posi-
tions. She also sees the floor
very well, and I think she's one
.of our better passers in the post
position."

BACK IN THE POLL: For the first
time in nearly two years, UF
(15-3, 3-2 SEC) was ranked in
the Associated Press Top 25
poll, checking in at No. 24 on
Monday.
The Gators, who only earned
13 votes last week, last en-
tered the poll on Feb. 9, 2004.
Voter Mel Greenberg of the
Philadelphia Inquirer saw the
Gators win at Temple on Dec. 3
and has ranked UF in and out of
his top 25 all season. He pegged
the Gators at No. 19 this week.
"You knew you had to make
some changes in those bot-
tom positions because of some
losses," Greenberg said. "At that
point, you almost run a mini-poll
and measure a team against all
those others you're considering
for the final five or six spots.
Florida's total body of work was
enough to get them in there."
UF entered the ESPN/USA
Today poll Jan. 2 at No. 25 and
rose to No. 24 the following week
before falling out of the poll last
week after losing to Kentucky.
The Associated Press contributed
to this report.

live in Cuba. It's an island full of educated in-

Castro, a master of trickery, whose 50-year
social experiment has provided some great
baseball and a lot of suffering, will never step
down as the ruler of the Caribbean's largest
island.
But there are nearly 12 million Cubans
that, for three weeks, can feel proud about
something by rooting for 25 of their fellow cit-
izens. And maybe this will remind Americans
that Cuba isn't about one hated man, but it's
an entire nation that's been made irrelevant
because of politics. No one really knows what
to expect from this mysterious team, but I'll
bet no country plays harder and with more
passion than Cuba.
Without baseball, they truly have nothing.

Injury could keep Brewer out against South Carolina


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

When Corey Brewer fell to the ground
clutching his ankle during UF's loss to
Tennessee on Saturday, UF coach Billy
Donovan assumed the worst.
At the time, he didn't believe that UF's
top scorer would make it back in the game
at all, much less score 10 points while
noticeably limping the remainder of the
game.
And while Brewer was able. to gut it
out on Rocky Top, he might not be able
to again when the Gators travel to South
Carolina on Wednesday.
"He'll definitely travel," Donovan said.
"I'd say right now he's not going to play."
Brewer's injury is not a high-ankle
sprain, as initially thought after he landed
on the foot of Tennessee forward Stanley
Asumnu when pulling down a rebound.
But Brewer sat out practice on Monday
and is unlikely to return to the floor to-
day.
"All I can really talk about is just
[Monday] because I don't know .how his
treatment is going to go, and I don't know
how well he's going to respond," Donovan
said. "He is very, very sore. [Sunday]
morning, he came in several times for
treatment. He's on crutches right now."
With Brewer's absence, UF must play
with just eight scholarship players, while
leasing a gaping hole in the middle of the
Gators' starting lineup.
As a 6-foot-8 small forward, Brewer has

perimeter, as well as provide quickness

UF officials disappointed with Vols' post-game security


* THE SEC COULD FINE TEN-
NESSEE $5,000 FOR STU-
DENTS STORMING COURT.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

Before UF tipped off against
Tennessee on Saturday, the largest
crowd ever to see a men's basket-
ball game in Knoxville in 15 years
was ready to erupt.
After the Volunteers upset the
then-No.2 Gators, a large portion
of the Tennessee student section
roared onto the floor with inflat-
able alligators in hand to celebrate
the win.
On Monday, UF Athletics

Director Jeremy Foley roared back.
"In my opinion, it could have
been handled better," Foley said
of the security at Tennessee's
Thompson-Boling Arena. "I think
before the game starts, if you have
an idea that that's going to happen
and there's nothing you do about
it, it makes you wonder how much
planning went into it."
Foley said that a member of
Tennessee's administration inti-
mated to a UF official before the
game that students could storm
the court, despite the fact that the
Southeastern Conference insti-
tuted a system of fines to prevent
such incidents in 2004.
The policy states that: "In all
sports, access to the competition

area shall be limited to partici-
pating student athletes, coaches,
officials, support personnel and
properly credentialed individu-
als at all times.
For the safety

S i shall spectators
Foley be permitted to
enter the com-
petition area. It is the responsibil-
ity of each member institution to
implement procedures to ensure
compliance with this policy."
The first offense under the poli-
cy would result in a fine of $5,000.


According to DeWayne Peevy,
associate director of media rela-
tions for the SEC, conference com-
missioner Mike Slive is reviewing
the incident after receiving a
statement from Tennessee on its
preventative measures.
"It's the commissioner's dis-
cretion for the fine. It's not an
automatic fine," Peevy said. "That
way, a school does have a chance
to respond. They could have done
everything possible to stop it from
happening, and it could have hap-
pened. So it's a possibility that he
could decide not to fine a school."
Foley, who called Slive on
Saturday night, was also concerned
with a number of Tennessee fans
seated behind the Gators bench


who were harassing players and
members of UF's staff.
"Those of you who were there,
you saw what was happening,
and I think that's inappropriate
too," Foley said. "As Billy said,
not everyone's fans are going to
be saints.
"We all have those issues, and
we asked about that on more than
one occasion to try to deal with
that, and it fell on deaf ears. That's
what disappoints you."
The SEC's policy against fans
rushing the court took effect after
the brawl between the Indiana
Pacers and Detroit Pistons in 2004.
Earlier that year, Georgia fans
