Alligator Contributing Writer
A threatened species of bird was released on Paynes
Prairie Wednesday after having its critical injuries mended
Samantha, a bald eagle, was released from the UF
Veterinary Medical Center and the Alachua Audubon Society
after 41 days of rehabilitation.
"The eagle was anxious and flying into every-
thing. When they're ready to go, then you can
tell they are ready."

"When the eagle came to us, it was in critical condition,"
said Elijah Rooney, veterinary technician for the center.
Samantha's injuries included a crippled left leg, swollen
right shoulder, blood in its lungs and air sacs, and impaired
The.cause of injury is thought to havebeen a collision with
a motor vehicle.
"It was found on 441 in the middle of the road," Rooney

days, a radiograph revealed head trauma, soft-tissue dam-

Cheating turns high tech
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Economics professor David Denslow re-
members when students snuck sticks of gum
with answers written on them into his tests.
But as communication technology becomes
sleeker and slimmer, students have new cheat-
ing options to chew on.
University students around the nation have
begun using cell phones, personal data assis-
tants, preprogrammed calculators, iPods and
the Internet to cheat on tests and assignments.
Though it is widespread, electronic cheating
has not been reported as a major problem at UF
UF faculty and staff say they are concerned
and are keeping their eyes open to prevent
electronic cheating from becoming a problem
at the university.
Denslow prevents students from cheating
by barring the use of programmable calculators
on his exams. He thinks electronic cheating is
becoming easier, but students have always
found creative ways to get around the rules.
"Probably I should give more attention to
cheating than I do," Denslow said. "I don't like
going out and policing students."
Student Director of Student Judicial
Life Affairs Ken Gassiot said there
have been no reported cases in
which students used electronic devices to cheat
in the past academic year.
"It's just been lucky that we haven't en-
countered students who need to cheat or get
an academic advantage on an exam or quiz'or
something like that using those sorts of things,"
Gassiot said. "It just seems like its been, more

* DESPITE INCREASE, MOST

Interest rates on federal student
loans edged higher Tuesday, but the
Florida Bright Futures Scholarship
Program will shield many UF stu-
dents from the increase.
The Stafford Loan, one of the
most common forms of federal fi-
nancial aid, has a variable interest
rate that is readjusted each year.
Because the Federal Reserve
Board has hiked short-term inter-
est rates during the past year, the
interest rates for Stafford Loans
will climb to 6.8 percent beginning

month, UF students will probably
not feel the pinch.

President vows return
Free papers put on break
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Though student senators showered
praise upon their outgoing leader
Tuesday night, Senate President Lauren
Mierley promised her work in Student
Government is not complete.
"Tonight is my last night as Senate
president, but I'm not going to stand
here and give a goodbye speech because
I'm not leaving," she told senators at her
last Senate meeting for the Summer.
Mierley, who was elected to her post
during an eight-hour meeting in March,
will spend her summer working as an
intern for General Electric Co.
In the meantime, she said, she will
remain active in Senate by keeping in
touch with other top lawmakers and
Mierley will return to Gainesville as a
senator this Fall, but she will not resume
her position as president.
"You don't need a title to be a leader
on this campus," she said. "You don't
need a title to accomplish goals and do
things for the student body."
Mierley's fellow lawmakers said
their leader would be sorely missed.
"A president-pro tern combination
hasn't had this kind of chemistry or
chumminess in a really long time," said
Josh Weiss, the Senate's No. 2 official.
"A president-pro tem combina-
tion hasn't had this kind of
chemistry or chumminess in a
really long time."
Although SG rules originally called
for him to step up as the Senate's new'
leader, Weiss said last week he wants to
continue his job as second-in-command.
Senators should be tasked with
choosing their own leader, he said, and
lawmakers ultimately supported a bill
to amend their rules and designate an
election for their next president.
The Senate will select its new leader
at Tuesday's meeting.

News-hungry UF students will not

Government's readership program for the
Summer A term.

that reduced student attendance is the rea-
son for the newspaper cutback.
"Attendance is low during Summer A,"
he said, "But the contract is under renewal
in the next few weeks, and that issue will be
That contract will be brought before the
Student Senate, and senators will vote on
whether to keep or revise the contract.
The readership program was started by
former Student Body President Kyle Jones in
2003 and included free USA Today newspa-
pers at seven locations on campus.
When SG expanded the program last
year, it cost $45,000 in student money.
The program grew from 420 copies of
USA Today and 345 copies of The New York
Times per day, to 450 copies of USA Today
and 393 copies of The New York Times
newspapers per day. The expansion added
an extra 11,232 papers a year.
Some students want to have the option of
having The New York Times and USA Today
offered during Summer A.

the money otherwise."

positive and that the bill to renew the read-
ership program contract will most likely be
"Generally, students are glad to have the
service," he said.
Students will not have to wait too long
for the return of the free newspapers. The

Young lion makes new home at Gainesville refuge
* KIARA WAS KEPT AS A PET
BEFORE MOVING TO SANCTUARY.
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Contributing Writer
WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. The transfer
took place in the foyer of a hotel.
After waiting 45 minutes outside the lobby
of a three-star hotel, the moment Bruce Capin
had been waiting for had come.
"[Culver] was thinking of putting .
[Kiara] in another sanctuary. But
he changed his mind because she
wouldn't get the attention that
she'd get here."

Lynn Culver arrived with Kiara, a 15-
month-old mountain lion and the newest
addition to Capin's animal sanctuary in
Capin, of north central Florida, traveled
more than 1,500 miles and spent almost $1,000
on food, gas and lodging to bring Kiara to her
Before her relocation she spent five days
with Culver in Mena, at the Natural Order
Animal Husbandry Feline Conservation
According to Culver, Kiara was from a
Kiara's owner,. Michael Haney, raised
her from infancy. When he and his family
moved from Gum Springs to an apartment
in Arkadelphia, there was not enough room
So Haney tied her to a tree behind the
building. Though he was not breaking any
Arkansas state laws, the landlord asked him to
find Kiara another home immediately because
the building was located across the street from
an elementary school. She was forced to spend
a week in an animal shelter.
Mountain lions can be dangerous, but like
any wild cat, they would avoid people if they
could. The mountain lion is also known as the
Florida panther, cougar and puma.
When Haney contacted Culver at the cen-
ter, she gave him Capin's phone number.
"He was thinking of putting her in another
sanctuary," Capin said. "But he changed his
mind because she wouldn't get the attention
that she'd get here."
Culver said Haney was undergoing dialy-
sis and unable to drive, so she offered to house
Kiara for five days and deliver her to Capin.
On May 20, Culver met Capin and one of
his fencing students in West Memphis.
Astounded guests pressed against the glass
doors of the lobby to watch while Culver,
Capin and his student loaded Kiara into a spa-
cious cage for the trip.
Kiara was placed in the back of a minivan
for the 12-hour trip to her new home.

The trip went smoothly. The van was filled
with Kiara's purring and little yelps of excite-

They arrived at Capin's sanctuary,
Yahtok'ya Animal Sanctuary, at about 2 a.m.
and introduced Kiara to her new home in

The eagle was then sent to the

jured eagle to stretch its wings.
"When birds have been injured
for a while they lose strength in their

"The cage is necessary for re-

"As a result of Bright Futures and

UF's average undergraduate loan
indebtedness for the 2004-2005 year is about $14,800
- far below the $19,000 national average.
About 65 percent of students who graduated in the
2003-2004 school year did so after getting student loans,
according to the Department of Education's National
Center for Education Statistics.
Student loan interest rates will climb 1.84 percentage

If rates keep rising, students with the old variable-

interest on their loans.

things like having a note card."
Marc Hoit, UF's associate provost for information tech-
nology, said he thinks electronic cheating isn't a problem, so
long as faculty are aware of whether students are behaving
suspiciously or using banned devices during tests.
"The old-fashioned ways of writing on a piece of paper
and sharing notes or doing those kinds of things are not a
whole lot different than the technology ones," he said.
Hoit said cheating is "harder to catch" when students
use cell phones to send text messages under their desks, but
he added that it's not much different than when students
pass notes to each other.
The best way to prevent cheating is to make exams
where students have to write essays or show how they

solved a problem when answering a question, he said.
Faculty and staff are also fighting plagiarism at UF. Eight
cases of plagiarism were reported to the Department of
Student Judicial Affairs last February, and seven cases were
reported last March. Gassiot said it is becoming easier for
students to plagiarize material from the Internet, particu-
larly as society becomes more "convenience-oriented."
The time and effort needed to adequately read, research
and write academic papers can be stressful, Gassiot said.
"It's easier just to copy and paste from the Internet, or
look online and try to find someone else's paper on the
same topic," he said.
Teachers can check student papers by asking them to
send digital copies to Tumitin.com, a database that searches
for how many times sections are repeated in part or word-
for-word. Searching for parts of a paper in Google or other
search engines can also work, Gassiot said.
Students enrolled in classes that solely use WebCT, the
university's online platform for courses, are required to
take tests in the CIRCA computer lab, Hoit said. Computers
in these labs are monitored by proctors and restricted from

Mothers selling daughters on MTV is irresponsible, tasteless
S o "Date My Mom" is just one of the
many lighthearted dating shows on
I don't think so.
This show stems from the same hypo-
critical network that promotes its "Think" ads,
meant to raise social awareness.
On their Web site, MTV describes "Date
My Mom" as "a few brave guys ... each take
out three moms. The guys will then decide
which of their daughters will be the right love
match for them."
MTV makes it sound like a fairy-tale story
of a knight searching for his lady. That is not
Let's delve a little deeper into how the
show depicts women. The mothers peddle off
their daughters like counterfeit DVDs in order

Speaking Out with the "brave" guy
for their daughter.
Hey, aren't there
enough guys in the world? Are the daughters
really that desperate for a date, anyway?
If they are, then why aren't they subscribing
to Match.com, instead of having their mothers
sell their "qualities" to some random guy?
This is not innocent stuff, people. This -is
dangerous. This is how MTV makes light of a
devastating social problem and adds to it by
making it into a game with fun background
Many people will brush the show off, but
like an unruly child left undisciplined for its
bad behavior, MTV will continue adding to
its repertoire of socially irresponsible "dating"
shows. That is, until people start becoming
aware of the dangers of the ideas being fed to
According to their Web site, MTV's au-
dience ranges from their teens to their 20s.
Young females are being taught by "Date My
Mom" that they must compete for a guy's at-
tention, and that it is okay for mothers to play
along and indulge the guy. It teaches them that
they are not in control, the man is. In the show
the man always chooses.
Why does he get all the focus and power
- anyway? Why does he get to choose? When
will "Date My Dad" debut?
I demand equality.
If, after this, you still think that I should
get a life because I'm just ragging on a stupid
MTV show that is not even that good in the
first place, consider this: A BBC News article
describes how baby girls in China are disap-
pearing, abandoned and aborted because
couples are only allowed a maximum of two

Americans, we read this, and we think "Oh,
how harsh, how cruel. We would never do this
to our female children."
No, we wouldn't. As Americans, we would
just let our daughters watch and participate
in a show where their whole worth as hu-
man beings depends on how well their moms
can pitch them to a guy, and then on whether
she gets to date him or not.
How is that any different?

Bar owners responsible for snuffing out indoor smoking
Editor: I couldn't agree more with Megen Miller's May
25 column regarding smoking in bars. I can't tell you how
many times the smoky atmosphere at Gator City Sports
Grille & Billiards and other area bars has kept me from even
bothering to go out, or at least kept me from going to bars
that allow smoking indoors. It's really quite stupid, if you
think about it we get all dressed up, spritz on the cologne
or perfume, and head off to a disgustingly smoky bar where
we absorb all of the cigarette smell in our hair and on our
Never mind the bad smell, the dangers of breathing in
second-hand smoke from our fellow barhoppers are well-
known and not worth the risk. I don't care if people smoke,
that's their prerogative, they've made the decision to accept
the risks and deal with the consequences. However, I don't
feel that they should be able to make that decision for me.
There are very few bars in Gainesville that prohibit
smoking indoors, so our options are limited when we-want
to head out for a good time. Smoking isn't allowed in any
other public establishment, such as the mall, grocery store or
movie theatre, why should it be allowed in bars and clubs?
I'm sick literally of having to endure cigarette
smoke when I go out, so, please, bar owners, put it out

wakes up and writes. At 6 a.m. he helps his
four kids prepare for their day.
Mike Foley, master lecturer in journalism,
is amazed at McKeen's zenlike concentration.
"He can slip into an incredibly high gear,"
Foley said. "He only types with two fingers
but types like the wind."
McKeen's proficient typing is no laughing
matter. There's something wrong with his
hands. No one knows exactly what.
Cloistered in his office, surrounded by
framed photos of artists like Bob Dylan and
Bob Marley, he glances down at his hands. He
slightly flexes his fingers.
"I've. had surgery, but they're still screwed
up," McKeen said. "Doing three projects at
once doesn't help."
He has spent the summer juggling his liter-
ary projects with his chairman duties.

Critical Mass promotes cycling safety and awareness
-.-aru n.yu. / MhllldLur
lan and Becca, who withheld their last names, wait for the Critical Mass Bike Tour to begin on the Plaza of the
Americas. The pair traveled to Gainesville from North Carolina this summer.
By ANDREW JAEGER
A curious hybrid of cyclists
rolls up and down University
Avenue, ringing bells and honk-
ing horns at confused onlookers.
Reactions to the spectacle
range from adoration to assault.
One particularly spirited indi-
vidual takes to the top of a picnic
table, spinning his T-shirt above
his head while boisterously
cheering the group on.
At the same time, a group of
decidedly less enthusiastic driv-
ers shout obscenities and blare
their horns at the apparent out-
rage of only being able to drive
15 miles per hour.
At the last event, one enraged
driver struck one of the partici-
pants with a sport utility vehicle.
The impact did not cause any
major harm but did provide a
cear indication of the bicycle-au-
tomobile tension that runs high
Joe Richard, the rider who
was struck, said that people from
out of town aren't aware of local
bike laws, which allow for riding
on the street. To him, the Critical
Mass rides are both a way of pro-
moting awareness and of having
a "spontaneous street party."
Love it or hate it, on the
last Friday of each month, bi-
cycle enthusiasts from around
Gainesville come together to
form a "Critical Mass," conspicu-
ously taking over a lane of traffic
in a display of solidarity.
"It shows people there
are other ways to get around
Gainesville than by car," said
Claire Mitchell, a recent UF
graduate and organizer of the
event. "It's basically about bi-
cycle awareness. You can't ignore
a big group of bikes."
These gatherings started in
San Francisco, and have become
popular in major metropolitan
areas and college campuses
around the world in the last few
years, all with the general pur-
pose of promoting bicycles and
the culture that surrounds them.
In Gainesville, the promotion
of awareness is definitely on the
riders' minds. But there is more
to it than that riding down
University in a group of more
than 80 cyclists is just plain fun.
Riders leave from the Plaza
of the Americas at 5:30 p.m. on
the last Friday of every month.

Spas induce relaxation
Shen the stress of those summer
classes and jobs hit, nothing can
- relax a student more than being
pampered at a spa.
But while spa treatments can cost up to
$50 or more, there are several inexpensive
ways to pamper yourself within the comfort
of your own home.
The first step is to create a soothing spa
environment. Light scented candles, play
soft music, even drink herbal tea or a fruit
smoothie. Take the phone off the hook, make
sure the TV is not on and turn off your cell

To make your skin glow, gently massage
sugar all over your body for a sweet scrub.
Once you're done, step out and fill the bath-
tub with marbles, letting your feet roll over
them for a simple foot soak and massage.
Now that you're out of the bath, cear
your pores by giving yourself a steam. Cover
your face with a towel and, breathing deeply,
stand eight to 10 inches over a pot of steam-
ing water. Afterwards, rinse with warm
water to ocean out the pores, and then splash
cold water on your face to close them.
Next, create your own exfoliator and
moisturizer. Mix one-half of a cup of brown
sugar and one-quarter of a cup of honey,
adding an optional essential oil, and apply
the mixture to your face and neck. Beginning
at your neck, use circular movements to
work your way up to your forehead, creating
soft skin with a healthy glow.
You can also whip up your own at-home
facial mask, using what you have in your
refrigerator. Mash avocados if you have
dry skin, scramble raw eggs for oily skin or
spread on some mayonnaise for normal skin.
Let the mask sit for 20 minutes, and then

Their latest record,
"Drowaton," was released on
April 25 to consistently posi-
tive reviews. It intricately layers
traditional rock instrumentation
with strings, brass, synthesiz-
ers and electronic effects, for a
freewheeling, slightly trippy pop
"I wanted to make more of a

The complexity of the band's
arrangements might seem im-
possibly ambitious to translate to
a live setting.
"It's a challenge," Vest said.
"When I write a song, I don't

The Mints have, however,
managed to work their way
around this difficulty.
-"Sometimes we- have string
players," Vest said. "We started
doing that for this tour, and it
wasn't working out the way we
wanted it, so we're back to a
five-piece live. We try to stay true
with the record, using samples or
whatever, so we at least try to get
all the string parts there."
This means juggling instru-
ments for some, and replicating
instruments for others.
"Sometimes I'll play cello, but
I usually play acoustic or electric
guitar," Vest said. "We usually
have an auxiliary guy who plays
guitar, piano and sings backup,
and we have Marian [Nunez,

pany claims it did not pay for the placement.
Since then, product plugs have become an
integral part of moviemaking. It takes a great
deal of money to make Tobey
a Fyne Maguire look so lithe and limber
while web-slinging between build-
ings, and so even the amazing
"Spider-Man" series has- to sell
itself to Pepsi.
What is new in the product
placement industry is the technol-
ogy that allows moviemakers to
double their money.
In "Spider-Man 2," a Dr Pepper logo is
dearly visible on a refrigerator in the back-
ground during the scene in which Peter Parker
pleads to keep his job in the pizza shop. In
European versions of the film, Dr Pepper was
replaced with a Mirinda logo, a fruit-flavored
soda PepsiCo Inc. markets outside of the
United States. This type of visual dubbing
is becoming more common as technology
evolves, giving studios leverage to convince
advertisers to pay for overseas additions.
SThe moral of the story is this: Don't be
fooled by the beautiful celebrities. Will Smith
got paid to wear Ray-Ban sunglasses in "Men
in Black" wear your knockoffs with your
head high and ignore the hype Hollywood
tries to sell you.
Comfort can ruin mystery
Sfter being fast friends for more
than a year, Dearest and I can
-- safely say that we are comfort-
able with each other.
Okay, I'll go ahead and be out with
it I'm immature. I'm still waiting to
grow out of that stage in life when bodily
functions are funny and interesting. And
I've never been shy, especially with best
friends. And Dearest is my
best friend. Maghan
What to us is normal and
sometimes downright impres-
sive is straight-up vulgar to
others. Until recently, I had
considered myself lucky to be j
with someone who, like me,
is not bothered by a digestive
system that makes its presence known.
However, the other day I was telling
a few girlfriends about my latest diges-
tion-related experiment in which Dearest
played a small role, and I began to ques-
tion my all-or-nothing approach.
One friend, "Sally," agreed that being
as comfortable with your lover as I am is
refreshing. She even explained that when
a new love interest breaks wind in front
of her the first time, she gets excited.
But then "Sue" chimed in.
"I hate it," she said. "I never do it.
How else do you maintain that air of
mystery? That's the only way to keep the
romance alive in long relationships."
Ohno! Have I sabotaged the mystery
that is so essential to seduction? Have I
killed the romance in what is turning out
to be a real, lasting relationship?
What's more, it got me to thinking.
Are we exchanging the rose-colored
glasses of love for the excruciating de-
tails that accompany any cose friend-
ship? By becoming and acting like the
c friends that we are, are we
MlcDowell neglecting to act like the lov-
ers that we started out as in
the first place?
I know that every couple
is different, and even the
same people act differently in
different relationships, but I
wonder if being more private
can be a good thing.
Can you remain mysterious while
Then I decided that every relation-
ship has its own version of mystery.
Sharing my bowel misadventures isn't
sharing everything. Even though I know
what he eats and how it affects him, I still
find him perfect warts, farts and all.
What about you? Do you intention-
ally try to hide your flaws or do you let
all the nasty bits hang out? Have you en-
countered another dilemma altogether?
Help me help you by writing to me
at firstname.lastname@example.org. And don't worry
I love the gory details.

Gators tied for seventh in NCAAs
Senior Matt Every swings during the
S ., .5..'I
Octavian Cantilli / Alligator
SunTrust Gator Invitational on Feb.
* FOUR GATORS WERE NAMED TO
THE PING REGIONAL TEAM.
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF men's golf team is tied for
seventh place after the first round of the
NCAA Championship Tournament in
The Gators are seeded fourth in the
30-team tournament behind first-seeded
Oklahoma State, second-seeded Arizona,
who is tied for 23rd place, and third-seed-
ed Georgia, who is in 21st place.
"There were some surprising scores
today," UF coach Buddy Alexander said.
"Arizona's seeding was based on their re-
sults at the regional tournament and that
was on their home course, so that one
didn't surprise me as much as Georgia
and Georgia Tech (30th place).
"We're in a good spot right now. It's a
long tournament. It's four days instead of
three, so we're in a good spot."
Before they took to the course, fresh-
man Billy Horschel and seniors Matt
Every, James Vargas and Brett Stegmaier
were named to the PING All-Southeast
Horschel, who was the individual

The UF men's ultimate Frisbee team won
its first national championship at the 2006
Ultimate Players Association College Ultimate
Championships on Sunday against Wisconsin
by a score of 15-12.
The team earned its bid to the champion-
ships after winning all 11 games of its sectional
and regional tournaments. It was victorious in
all six games it competed in at the champion-
S "By the numbers, this
was the most impres-
sive season of any college
Club Sports Frisbee team ever," co-cap-
tain Cyle Van Auken said.
"But more importantly, this was the best team
that could have been created. Top to bottom,
everybody was committed to the ideals and
goals of the season."
In addition to winning the championship,
second-year graduate student Tim Gehert won
the Callahan Award, which is given to the most
valuable player in college ultimate as voted by
"It's a dream come true," Gehert said. "I
always thought that I'd have a shot at winning
it, but never did I actually, really believe I could
win it. It's an honor."
Ultimate Frisbee resembles football because
it's played on a 70-yard field with 25-yard end 1
zones, and a point is scored for every catch
made in the end zone. However, play is con-
tinuous like soccer, so the same competitors
play both offense and defense.-
The members of the team assert that ulti-
mate Frisbee requires the most athleticism of

Gators plan to recapture SEC All-Sports title next year
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ

The UF Athletic Association doesn't plan
on letting Georgia or any other school in the
Southeastern Conference take the SEC All-
Sports trophy from it again next year.
UF athletics director Jeremy Foley said
although the Icss is disappointing, it's moti-
vating those associated with the school.
"It does get the juices flowing a little bit,"
Foley said about losing the trophy. "We're

going to try like heck to get it back next year.
Nobody is going to work harder than us."
The Gators aren't necessarily going to do
anything different, he said, because the for-
mula UF has used for the past 15 years has
produced numerous championships.
UF has claimed 168 SEC titles in its his-
tory, with Georgia as the next closest pro-
gram with 116. To date, UF has won 25 team
national championships and 185 individual

this while fielding fewer sports than almost

"If ultimate were popular
enough to get on ESPN," co-captain
Bill MacQueen said, "there would
be a top-10 play every week involv-
ing ultimate Frisbee because of the
diving plays that happen."
During the regular season, the
team practiced for two hours every
Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. On
Wednesday and Saturdays, they
did distance runs and ran up and
down the steps of Ben Hill Griffin

ably more likely in two years,"
MacQueen said. "Only one team
ever has won more than two open-
division championships and that's
Santa Barbara, so we're in a position
to have a dynasty here."
MacQueen said the team drew
inspiration from UF's NCAA
Championship men's basketball
"Obviously, a lot of the student
body won't consider this achieve-
ment-in a similar light," he said.
"That's completely fair, but to us,
this is the most important thing that
many of us have accomplished, and
it's a big deal."
Financial issues, Title IX prevent
UF from fielding as many sports as other universities

have, UF does not, mostly because of finan-
cial issues and Title IX, a federal law that
requires the total amount of athletic aid to
be substantially proportionate to the ratio
of female and male athletes.
After the completion of the winter sports
season, the Gators were in eighth place in
national all-sports rankings. The spring
season is still being completed, and the
NCAA will announce the final standings
In 2004-05, the Gators finished sixth in na-
tional all-sports rankings, with 11 different UF
teams finishing in the top 10 of their respective
sport. Georgia finished seventh last year.
On his prediction for next year's SEC
All-Sports Trophy winner, Foley said, "I
don't make predictions; come and talk to
me next year. All I can say is everything
that needs to be done will be."
