gan circulating on popular Web sites like
YouTube and VHl's "Best Week Ever"
Hall was informed
that the college intend-
ed to fire him in an Oct.
2 letter from Andrew
McCollough, the busi-
ness college's senior
In the letter,
Hall McCollough wrote
that the business college has "received
student complaints, confirmed by class
recordings, that your classroom behavior
was bizarre and your lecture deviated
wildly from the course subject matter."
He listed other problems as well, in-
cluding Hall's calling in sick on the first
day of classes this semester and failing to
turn in a class syllabus on time.
McCollough's letter told Hall he
had 10 business days to respond to the
college's plan to fire him.

UF officials will make a final decision
on Hall's employment status, said Kyle

Swamp to create committees on campaign issues
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Now that Student Government's
Swamp Party controls two branches
of SG, Swamp officials say they're
ready to tackle platform issues like
student tuition and recycling.
Student Senate President Josh
Weiss said he plans to set up tem-
porary Senate committees to deal
with issues like recycling. As Senate
president, Weiss helps SG's legisla-
tive branch oversee about $12 mil-
lion in student money.
Aside from Swamp platform
items, Weiss said, he wants to im-
plement his personal ideas and take
suggestions from other senators.
"It's hard to say what I represent
because I do it for the party," Weiss
Weiss also clarified Swamp's
platform points regarding "fair
tuition policies" and the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences' multimil-

complaints from students who

Moseley's goal is to put CD-

money, he said.
But before he proceeds with his
plan, he said he needs to assess the
cost of moving all of the informa-
tion onto WebCT.
So far, Moseley said, he has re-
ceived good feedback from UF of-
ficials who are discussing the issue.

Virtual patient helps med students with bedside manner
* ASKING THE MACHINE PERSONAL QUESTIONS
HELPS FUTURE DOCTORS WITH THE REAL THING.
By JIM CARECCIA
SAlligator Contributing Writer
DIANA has not been feeling well for the past two years, and
she is constantly complaining about stomach pains.
As a medical student at Shands walks into the examination
room to interview her, they find her lying flat against a wall.
Don't be alarmed. DIANA, which stands for Digital
Animated Avatar, is a virtual patient that medical students use.
to practice diagnosing disorders.
UF has partnered with the Medical College of Georgia and
receives help from Keele University in the United Kingdom
on the project. These three institutions are the only ones in the
world to use it, said Andrew Raij, who works on the project.
DIANA allows students to practice their interviewing skills
and receive valuable feedback, said Benjamin Lok, the leader of
the research project and a professor in computer graphics and
virtual reality in the College of Engineering. ..
The DIANA system has been programmed with medical
knowledge to provide expert-level feedback, he said.
Medical students can also practice asking sensitive ques-
tions they may feel uncomfortable asking a realperson.
"If you practice asking DIANA about her sex history, you
may become less nervous when it comes time to talk to a real
person," Lok said.
A main focus of this project is to provide feedback on stu-
dents' communication skills. Researchers looked at students'
gestures, eye contact and speech rate, he said.
"We want to see if talking with a virtual patient can improve
talking with a real person," he said.
In addition, researchers want to see if students can improve
skills with a diverse number of patients. The age, race and sex
of DIANA can be changed with a click of a button, Raij said.
Researchers can also determine if culture plays a part in
how patients are treated.
The training includes two personal computers, a projector,
cameras and a wireless microphone. The total cost is about
$7,000, Lok said.
When a student enters the training room,
U F he or she sits in front of a projector screen.
.' -.: "F ':. The screen shows DIANA lying down in
an exam room. Depending on where the
student moves his or her head, the view of the exam room will
change, Lok said.
"It's not a 3-D image," Raij said. "We like to call it a 'window
into the wall.'"
Researchers hope to see this project in schools across the
country, Raij said.
"Eventually this could even be a product, but for now it will
remain a research project," he said.

petting zoo. The show, which featured
performances by local bands such as
Mercy and Redboy, was conducted
by figure skating champion Doug

Here we go again
Diversity worth little if SG
A according to a panel of current and former Student
Government officials, SG needs more black men. More
Hispanics. More women. More blind quadriplegic
with muttonchops. Where does it end?
.We support diversity in SG, of course. White guys in
Dockers and boat shoes aren't the only ones who need a little
resume padding. Hell, blind quadriplegic with muttonchops
need it more than most. But a wasteful, incompetent SG is still
wasteful and incompetent no matter how diverse it is.
Unfortunately, making SG more representative usu-
ally boils down to placating powerful groups the Black
Student Union, the Hispanic Student Association, the Blind
Quadriplegics With Muttonchops Society instead of ad-
dressing the concerns of minority students. Or any students,
for that matter.
It's all part of the reigning ethos in SG. Call it T-ball democ-
racy everybody gets to play, it doesn't matter if you win or
lose, and afterward there are cookies and juice for all. If you're
Student Senate President Josh Weiss, your mom even comes
to Gainesville to cheer you on. Sounds fun. Unfortunately,
with $12 million dollars at stake, it's not a game.
Last week, Coach Weiss said he wants one piece of legisla-
tion from every senator all 94 of them before Spring. Or
not. After all, Weiss says, "This is a positive program. I'm not
trying to punish people." Of course you're not, Josh.
Whether or not UF needs 94 new laws it doesn't, i'nci-
dentally Weiss' plan shows that SG is more interested in
giving everyone a turn at the plate than in leading the student
body. It seems that now, as ever, the main thing SG governs
Here at the Alligator, we're all for more minorities in the
Student Senate. More women, tod. But if they're no better
than or different from the guys in office now, then what's the

A h, Iraq. "The
American people are
not going to contin-
ue to support ... a policy that

Sen. Ted Kennedy? The

Actually, no. You're way,
way off the mark. It was Sen.
Chuck Hagel, a Republican
from Nebraska. Not quite a
hippie, in other words.
He's one of a growing
number of conservatives
who'ye turned against
the president's war policy
- and even considered
a phased withdrawal of
American troops if the situ-
ation doesn't improve. Sen.
John Warner, chairman of
the Senate Armed Services
Committee, is another.
With members of even his
own party turning against
him, what's George W. Bush
to do? Well, he could accept
reality, of course. Admit that
the war in Iraq is a disaster.
Bring our troops home. But
we all know that's not go-
ing to happen Bush is too
wrapped up in his own little
world to see what's right in
.front of him.
But that doesn't mean the
rest of his party can't face

hope a few more Republicans
follow Hagel and Warner
into the real world.

Letters to the
Barrett distorted PETA's record, beliefs
The reason Patrick Barrett's Thursday
column on People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals seemed so unbelievable is that
it was filled with misleading informa-
tion and false statements. He referred to
PetaKillsAnimals.com, a restaurant and tobac-
co-industry front group that also campaigns
against organizations like Mothers Against
The goal of that group is clearly not to help
animals, but to put corporate profits ahead of
ethical concerns. If Barrett had been sincere
about helping animals, he would have ex-
plained that one student can save thousands
of animals by choosing a vegetarian diet or
discussed the benefits of adopting animals
from shelters rather than buying them from
PETA works peacefully through research,
investigations and fieldwork to expose the
abuse of animals. I welcome readers to check
out peta2.com to learn how to get involved,
or contact me at PulinM@peta2.com with any
questions or concerns.

Engineers get paid more for a reason
I was amused by Brooke Rich's Thursday
letter, in which she said living without Homer
would be as hard as living without Edison.
How ridiculous. It may sound arrogant to
some to suggest that some fields of study are
more important or more helpful than others,
but that does not make the statement false.
Apparently, I'm not the only person who
feels some majors are more necessary than
others. Otherwise, the job market and start-
ing salaries would be equal for all degrees.
Furthermore, the next time you see a homeless
man, just ask him if he'd rather have a heater
during the winter or the Iliad.
Alligator ignored Pro-Life Week event
I find it amazing that the Alligator did not
cover Thursday's "Silent No More" awareness
panel. There were six women and one man
talking about their personal regrets concern-
ing abortion. We had more than 40 people
on the Reitz Union Colonnade making the
panel the biggest event in Pro-Life Week. It
had a huge impact on many who attended.
It's a shame that the Alligator jumps at the
chance to cover the Great Underwear Dash,
but when a really important event like our
awareness panel happens on campus, there's
not a single word in the next day's paper.
When Vox does its "Sex on the Lawn," I'm
sure the Alligator will be there so why
doesn't Pro-Life week deserve some coverage?
What happened to "We inform, you decide?"

UF gaffes prove costly against Auburn
By DAN TREAT

AUBURN, Ala. Perhaps the most fit-
ting way for No. 2 UF's first loss of the sea-
son to end was exactly the way it played out,
with Chris Leak on his back and an Auburn
defender strutting into the end zone.

emblematic of a game that had gone horribly

Perhaps the most costly blunder of
all came with UF facing a third down on
Auburn's 6-yard line.
Leak dropped back to pass, was pressured
and fumbled while trying to stop a throw.
The ball was recovered by Auburn's Tray

Gators run stoppers struggle to plug Auburn rush
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
AUBtJRN, Ala. The nearly flawless Gators
defense finally showed some vulnerability Saturday
Entering the game with the No. 1 rush defense in
the Southeastern Conference and No. 4 nationally
- UF didn't look anything like it against Auburn.
"Every time you think you have one of
themrnwrapped up, they found a way to
The Tigers, led by the running back duo of senior
Kenny Irons and sophomore Brad Lester, were the
first team all year to move the chains with a consis-
tent running attack against the Gators.
said. "I thought our defense hung in there, though."
UF's defense had been able to mount pressure in the
backfield this season with few blitzes, relying mostly
on its stingy front four to halt the rushing attack.
However, the Gators were forced to stack
the box early in the first quarter against
Auburn after allowing several big gains.
UF moved safety Tony Joiner and the linebacker
corps closer to the line of scrimmage, trying to mini-
mize damage by the Tigers. The move only opened
up space for Auburn wide receivers and left UF cor-
ners in one-on-one coverage for much of the night.
The Gators, relinquishing only 56.8 rushing yards
per game before the day began,. allowed Auburn
to net 86 rushing yards in the first half alone and
133 total. The final yardage tally would have
been even higher if it weren't for five sacks on
Tigers quarterback Brandon Cox in the first half.
The most rushing yards UF had allowed
prior to Auburn was 119 to Southern Miss.
"We just kept pounding at them," said Irons, who
finished with 67 yards on 13 carries. "We did a great
job of getting enough yards on the ground to allow
the passing game to make plays."
However, UF's defense did succeed in preventing
Auburn from scoring a touchdown. In the first half,
the Tigers penetrated into the red zone four times.
And four times they left without a touchdown.
But it was Auburn's ability to rush the ball down
the field that kept UF's offense on the sideline. The
Tigers, with their steadfast ground game, won the
time of possession battle 36:43 to the Gators' 23:17.
Not only did the Tigers' reliable rushing game keep
UF's offense off the field, but it also wore down the
Gators defense and allowed them minimal time be-
tween possessions to make in-game adjustments.
"We scored a lot of points," Auburn coach Tommy
UF's dilemma in failing to stop the run won't end
with the Tigers.
The Gators still have to face hefty
rushers in Georgia's Kregg Lumpkin
and Danny Ware in their next game.
And a meeting in Tallahassee against rival Florida
State and its running combination of Antone Smith
and Lorenzo Booker still looms as well.
Meyer lists his first "key to winning" each week as
stopping the run. Saturday was the first time Meyer
didn't accomplish that goal this season.
"Every time you think you have one of them
wrapped up," UF cornerback Reggie Lewis said,
"they found a way to slip through."

UF heats up swings at chilly Mercedes-Benz Classic
By ALDEN GONZALEZ
The UF women's golf team fended off cold
and windy conditions in Knoxville, Tenn., to
finish the Mercedes-Benz Classic in seventh
place with a combined 903 (51 over).
The Gators played without stroke-average
leader Sandra Gal who attended the World
Amateur Team Championships in South
Africa and finished 16 strokes off the lead on
a course they had never seen.
"I think the girls played great considering

UF especially had a
hard time dealing with the
course Friday, as the Gators

Briles-Hinton th place.
But one day's experience proved vital for
the struggling Gators.
They were able to improve by eight strokes
Saturday and two more strokes Sunday to fin-
ish the tournament on a good note.
"I think it just took some getting used to,"
Briles-Hinton said. "We had to be more care-
ful with our drives because the course is very
skinny and its very easy to get into trouble."
GATORS FREEZE COMPETITION: There is a
stereotype that UF cannot succeed in cross
countrybecause elite teams need cold weather
to become better.
But the Gators took a major step in dispelling
that theory at the Pre-NCAA Invitational in
Terre Haute, Ind., with what Coach Jeff Pigg
described as the best overall performance by
both teams in his tenure.
The men's squad took third place at the
meet and finished ahead of No. 9 Brigham
Young, No. 14 Michigan and No. 16 Virginia
with a final score of 217. Only No. 5 Iona and
No. 3 Stanford were able to outpace UF
"Our team looks at cold air like it's fresh
air," Pigg said. "We kind of enjoyed the way
the weather was. It was ideal."
The women's team had an impressive per-
formance as well, taking eighth in the event,
ahead of No. 7 Princeton, No. 11 Iowa and No.
13 Wake Forest with a score of 316.
"We beat a lot of teams that were ranked,"
Pigg said. "It was on the course where the

Last year, Mississippi defeated UF 1-0 in Oxford, Miss., on a
late goal by Amy Gill.
But now, the Gators have secured first place in the East divi-
sion, two points ahead of Vanderbilt.
"I think [the win is] very important just because our big goal
this year is to win the SEC regular season," Goodwin said. "It's
a tight battle now.
"Every game does count, and this is huge for us, especially
because we are up against [Ole Miss] for regular season."
The presents just kept coming for Burleigh as junior KeLeigh
Hudson started a game for the first time since returning from
an MCL sprain.
"I think she is doing great," Burleigh said. "Its tough to
come off an injury like that.
"She's got such a great mind for the game. She's just done a
great job kind of being the brains of our mid-field."
A rarity this season, the Gators channeled Friday's mo-
mentum into Sunday's game. It worked as UF knocked off
Mississippi State 3-1.
"We can compete with any team even if we are tired or frus-
trated," Abdullah said. "We are a very athletic team, and I think
it just builds our confidence each game."
UF scored early on an 8-yard kick from freshman Angela
Napolitano, her first goal in the SEC.

Gators sweep Tigers
* UF CONCLUDESANOTHER

It was supposed to be a clash of top 15
powers, but it turned out to be just another
Southeastern Conference sweep for the
No. 8 UF (16-2, 9-1 SEC) outdug, outhit
and outblocked No. 13 LSU in a 30-26, 30-
22, 30-22 win that placed the Gators alone
atop the conference.
Still recovering from a sore swinging
shoulder, junior opposite hitter Amber
McCray showed no signs of wear as she
led UF with 14 kills.
"It hurts like crap when I get home,
but as long as we get it fine for the games,
that's all I'm worried about," said McCray,
who received an anti-inflammatory shot of
Toradal before the match.
Freshman libero Elyse Cusack, who is
also struggling with an injury (left foot
stress fracture), had a match-high 23 digs.
"I think it's amazing that the player who
leads us in kills doesn't swing in practice,
and the player who leads us in digs doesn't
dig in practice," Coach Mary Wise said.
"One may argue, 'Why do we practice?'"
Some of Cusack's digs weren't exactly

Killingsworth did the opposite, as her 12
kills usually thunked an LSU pla, er or tw- o

"I don't care how I have to get it- just
get the kill no matter what," she said. "A
point's a point."
"OK, sometimes I do wanfto hit
people in the face, but that's not
the object of the game."

She then admitted: "OK, sometimes I do
want to hit people in the face, but that's not

Junior outside hitter Marcie Hampton
also reached double figures in kills with
11. and j
Junior setter Angie McGinnis had her
18th double-double of the season with 48
assists and 10 digs.
The Gators started out sloppily, as mis-
cues and five service errors kept LSU in
contention during game one.
But by the end of the match, it was the
Tigers who mistimed attacks and let play-
able balls drop to the floor.
"That's just over-anxiousness, trying
too hard," Wise said.
