Tuition bill hits roadblock
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
With three weeks left in the state legislative
session, a state Senate committee has halted a
bill that would allow UF to implement the
"Academic Enhancement Program."
Sen. Evelyn Lynn, the chairwoman
of the state Senate's Higher Education
Appropriations Committee, has refused to
hear the proposal, probably because only two
of the five committee members support the
bill, said Sen. Charlie Justice, a member of the
The bill-- sponsored by Sen. Steve Oelrich,
a Republican who represents Alachua County
- would allow UF to charge undergraduates
$1,000 more a year on top of tuition.
Justice said he was not in favor of the bill.
"If you're going to have tuition reform, it
should be in a comprehen-
sive manner, not in a piece-
meal manner," he said.
Justice added if state
universities felt they
needed higher tuition, the
evaluation should be all-
inclusive rather than on an
Justice "I think we all want to
get more funds for the university, but the state
should commit to all the universities rather
than one," Justice said.

Group projects can inhibit learning, study shows
* STUDENTS RECALL MORE
AFTER STUDYING ALONE.
By LINDSEY KARLIN
SAlligator Contributing Writer
Though final exams and proj-
ects loom, forget about forming a
study group to cope.
Research has found that work-
ing in groups can impair memory
and that it is not as productive as
Two researchers exposed 831
Indiana University students to a
soft-drink brand and later asked
them, individually and in groups,
to list the brand's competitors.
Alone, students were able to
recall significantly more brand
names than they were when
working in groups.
The findings, published in
the March issue of Journal of
Consumer Research, expose
flaws in the popular strength-in-
numbers strategy for studying
Groups often make poor deci-
sions because they fixate on the
few options said aloud, research-
ers reported in the University of
Chicago Press's release.
This fixation makes it harder
for group members to come up
with alternative answers, the
press release stated.
Spiro K. Kiousis, a UF associ-
ate professor and chair in the
Department of Public Relations,
said the study only focuses on
rote memory that resulting
from repetition as a measure
"My perspective of learning
goes much further than that in
terms of critical thinking and
being able to apply concepts and
principles," Kiousis said.
He stressed differences exist in
how students prepare in a group
setting for a project as opposed to
strictly for an exam.
Researchers said group work is
often guided by
Academics a term coined
in 1972 by social
psychologist Irving Janis.
Groupthink occurs when the
opinion of one or two particu-
larly strong-willed or large-
mouthed members shapes the
opinion of the entire group.
Montana Ross, a public rela-
tions senior, said she has been
assigned many group projects.
Based on her experiences, she
agrees with the researchers.
"In every group I've been in,
there has been a degree of group-
think," Ross said.
"I feel like we are not learn-
ing as much when we have to
work in groups all the time," she
said. "Without the chance to do

Electric company plans to capture, store carbon dioxide

nator of UF's Climate Neutrality Task Group.
Global warming is the culprit behind this
One company, though, is taking new
strides toward reducing its effects.
American Electric Power plans to capture
carbon dioxide emissions from two of its
power plants in Oklahoma and Ohio.
The gas will be stored underground in
saline aquifers to prevent it from entering the
atmosphere. This will be the first large-scale
commercial use of this kind of technology by
Carbon dioxide'makes up about 55 percent
of total greenhouse gases, which get trapped
in the atmosphere and cause global tempera-
tures to rise, said Ted Schuur, an associate pro-
fessor of ecosystem ecology at UF.
"We basically can't tackle climate change
without tackling carbon," he said.
This capture and storage technique will
be critical as long as fossil fuels are used, said
Van Soestbergen, who is also president of
International Carbon Banking and Exchange.
In Gainesville, electricity alone is respon-
sible for 2 million tons of carbon dioxide an-
nually, he said.
"We basically can't tackle climate
change without tackling carbon."
UF associate professor of ecosystem
This is enough to fill 19 large aircraft car-
riers, which would extend on University
Avenue from Interstate 75 to 13th Street.
However, carbon capture and storage does
have potential drawbacks.
Schuur said cost would be one of the big-
gest concerns. Because storing the gas will cost
power companies money, electricity bills for
homes could increase by about 20 percent, the
July 2005 issue of Scientific American states.
Many object to these potential price hikes,
he said, because they can't see the effects of
Earthquakes and gas leakages are other
downsides to the plan, Van Soestbergen said.
Because the earth is constantly moving, he
said, the underground deposits would have to
be monitored by trustworthy people.
"What if some moron president was like,
'Let's release it?'" Van Soestbergen asked.
"That's basically a weapon."

Gov. Crist joins in fight against global warming
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
As stewards of the land, Floridians have a
responsibility to reverse the effects of climate
change, Gov. Charlie Crist said Monday night.
To prove his point, he joined a celebrity-
and politician-driven movement to fight global
"This is a right or wrong issue," he said.
"And this is the right thing to do."
During a press conference, Crist voiced
his support for a petition demanding leaders
cut and freeze carbon dioxide emissions. The
petition is also supported by Sheryl Crow, a
Grammy award-winning musician, and Laurie
David, environmental activist and a producer
of "An Inconvenient Truth." The two celebri-
ties gave a presentation about global warm-
ing to roughly 1,575 people in the O'Connell
"We are both completely terrified about
what's happening to the planet," David said.
The event was part of the "Stop Global
Warming College Tour," which raises aware-
ness of the issue among students at 11
Southeastern colleges. The tour is a part of a
nationwide movement in support of the peti-
tion. Crist became the first Southern governor
At the press conference before the event,
Crist said climate change is responsible for
increasingly intense hurricane seasons and
called for the state to look into alternatives
to gasoline and coal energy. He said Florida's

PSU hosts drag show

Alligator Contributing Writer
Sporting a white dress shirt, black
suspenders and a multicolored mo-
hawk, Rachael Dupre strutted across
the stage as My Chemical Romance's
"I'm Not OK" blared.
Dupre a drag king known by the
stage name Rocky Star performed
at Monday's show, "A Night of Drag
"We wanted to have an event
that opened the community's
mind and made them more
comfortable about who we
are. It's also just a lot of fun."
Pride Awareness Month director
The show was put on by the
Pride Student Union as part of Pride
"I love drag shows," said Dupre,
25, a psychology senior at St. Leo
University in Tampa. "I get to be
something I'm not."
Dupre and four drag queens enter-
tained a crowd of about 50 UF students
in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
The performers received a total of
about $1,000, said Eunic Ortiz, the di-
rector of Pride Awareness Month.

David the creator of the Web site
stopglobalwarming.org and the wife Larry
David, the creator of "Seinfeld" and "Curb
Your Enthusiasm" confronted the audience
with statistics and facts about global warming.
She said millions of tons of carbon dioxide are
released into the atmosphere by humans. Polar
bears, she said, are drowning as their frozen
homes defrost in the increasing temperatures.
David praised Crist for signing the petition.
In an interview, Dedee DeLongpre, director
of UF's Office of Sustainability, said universi-
ties in the South lag behind other schools in
reducing carbon emissions. She said UF is still
powered by a coal plant. She also said Crist
could bring the fight against global warming
to the state legislature.
Crow, who owns a home in Florida and has
visited the state intermittently since she was 3,
said the tour was planned specifically to fight
global warming in the region.
"We didn't want to speak to people already
driving hybrid cars," she said.
DeLongpre said students have shown they
are thinking about global warming by approv-
ing a 50-cent per-credit-hour fee to use toward
renewable energy programs. This proposal
came in the form of a referendum, which was
voted on during Student Government spring
elections. It passed by 87 percent.
During the presentation, Crow sang
"Hard to Make a Change" and "Everyday is a
WindingRoad." She called on a student to play
the tambourine as she sang a Beatles song.
David, the environmental activist, said
schools need to be made carbon-neutral to
reduce emissions. Students, she said, should
reuse plastic shopping bags and use garment
bags. And Floridians should stop the creation
of two new coal plants in the state, especially
the one in the Everglades, she said.
"Imagine the impact each one of us could
have," she said.
The free event was organized by Accent and
Student Government Productions.
Each has performed professionally
across the country, and several have
won titles in drag competitions.
The "royals" danced and
lipsynched for two songs, changing
costumes between performances.
Outfits ranged from sparkling,
floor-length evening gowns to gold-
and-blue Egyptian pharaoh costumes.
Son!que, a drag queen who wore a
black bra and thong with black fishnet
stockings, drew raucous cheers when
she backflipped down the aisle.
The turnout and audience energy
were great, Ortiz said.
"We wanted to have an event that
opened the community's mind and
made them more comfortable about
who we are," she said. "It's also just
a lot of fun."
Ivana Black, a transgender UF
alumna and a three-year hostess of
the show, joked and mingled with the
crowd between performances.
"Who was looking at my butt?"
she asked at one point, drawing loud
laughter. "I saw that. I could feel it
Black also offered the audience
serious advice: Don't be scared to be

and try to fit in," she said.

What you can do to reduce
carbon dioxide emissions
and save some money:
Change your air filter
Check your car's air filter monthly.
Save 800 Ibs of carbon dioxide and
$130 a year.
Use recycled paper
Make sure your printer paper is 100
percent post consumer recycled paper.
Save 5 pounds of carbon dioxide per
ream of paper.
Take shorter showers
Showers account for 2,3 of all water
heating costs. Save 350 pounds of
carbon dioxide and $99 per year.
Bring cloth bags to the market
Using your own cloth bag instead of
plastic or paper bags reduces waste
and requires no additional energy.
Air dry your clothes
Line-dry your clothes in the spring and

Officials review crisis plans
By JESSICA PONN
If a tragedy similar to Monday morning's
shooting at Virginia Tech were to take place in
Gainesville, local police and hospital officials said
they would be prepared to respond immediately.
The Gainesville Police Department has a plan
of action, said GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg.
"You can never stop something like this,"
Kameg said. "That's the unfortunate part."
But, he added, advanced preparation can help
police to act swiftly in case of emergency. GPD has
25 officers with high-powered weapons on duty
at all times, along with SWAT team members and
hostage negotiators, Kameg said.
He added that the University Police

system that would route the most severe cases to
Hands and the rest to other local hospitals, he

trauma center, he said, which means it is especially
capable of dealing with crisis situations.
"We see any and all kinds of disasters here,"
he said. "We are able to take care of any kind of
Shands at UF has received patients from as far
away as Southern Georgia and the Caribbean, due

number of facilities, he said.

"It's unlikely that we could handle it all on our
own," he said.
Both Kameg and Tyndall said that after
Monday's tragedy, they will examine and poten-
tially change their crisis management plans.
Kameg said he has already contacted UF of-
ficials about updating emergency plans.
"It reinforces the need for readiness," Tyndall
said about the shooting. "It's a solemn reminder of
our need to be prepared."

A Miami Herald reporter and

interview she was surprised by the
public outcry her series, "House of

"I didn't expect them to be so

Could some of this tragedy
have been prevented?
Not only was it the largest school shooting in U.S.
history, but it was also the largest mass shooting in
the United States, period.
The Monday-morning massacre at Virginia Tech left at
least 33 people dead and many injured. The incident in-
volved two separate attacks: one in a dorm room, and the
next two hours later and half a mile away in a classroom
Two people died in West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed
dorm. Witnesses say students in a German class were lined
up against a wall of a Norris Hall classroom which had
been chained and locked by the gunman to prevent anyone
from escaping and shot. Some students jumped out of
windows to escape the spray of bullets. Students and fac-
ulty carried out the wounded, not waiting for ambulances
The gunman seemed to have shot himself. He carried no
identification, and his apparently self-inflicted head wound
made it even harder for law enforcement to identify him.
They haven't released his name as of 10:40 p.m. Monday,
but they believe they know who the culprit was.
Even though Virginia Tech is more than 600 miles away,
as college students, it's easy to feel the proximity. This could
have happened here. It could have happened anywhere.
President George W. Bush said Monday afternoon,
"Schools should be places of safety, sanctuary and learning.
When that sanctuary is violated, the impact is felt in every
American classroom in every American community."
For once, he couldn't be more right. Even the most mun-
dane task, such as sitting in a calculus lecture, is suddenly
tinged with danger. A certain innocence is gone and this
didn't even happen at UF.
And with dozens dead, the question we have to ask is,
How can this be prevented from happening again?
Students complained that no announcements were made
after the early-morning shooting in the dorm. Few knew
anything until around 9:30 a.m., when an e-mail was finally
sent about the same time the second shooting occurred.
But The New York Times reported even students who
read the e-mail didn't think much of it and continued on
Why didn't the university do more to alert students and
faculty? University officials should have immediately can-
celed classes isn't one death reason enough for that? The
university also should have called TV and radio stations
- and sent an e-mail immediately, not two hours later.
It's understandable that administrators thought the in-
cident was a domestic dispute and wouldn't move past the
dorm. Officials thought they had the crime scene secured
and figured the shooter was long gone. Resident advisers in
the dorms received phone calls to tell the students to stay in
their rooms and away from windows. But without the sus-
pect in custody, they should have used more foresight.
Of course, this is all easy to say in retrospect. The only
person who can truly be blamed is the man who thought he
could mess with others' rights to live. Now is the time to
reflect and heal.
Our hearts and thoughts are with the families and
friends of all of those affected by this tragedy, at Virginia
Tech and across the country.

Commentators skew words' meanings
ince 2001, political discourse has become a forum for
name-calling that leaves many people confused or
disgusted at the utter inability of politicos to engage
in intelligent debate.
Every day, the media spew political jargon that becomes
part of the vocabulary for the average person. Fox News
isn't the only culprit. Every news network and so-called
political expert is guilty of creating a culture that makes
Americans seem like complete morons to the rest of the
News anchors and others throw around the word "ji-
had" without any concern for its Islamic meaning or its
implications. Commentators use the word to describe any-
thing controversial the Democrats' inquiry into the firing
of eight U.S. attorneys was a "political jihad," as was the
inquiry into the Office of the Vice President following the
leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity.
These so-called experts should look up the definition
of jihad before nonchalantly throwing it into a sentence
to make themselves sound clever. The word is Arabic and
has a religious meaning. It entered Americans' vocabulary
following Sept. 11. We understand it literally to mean "holy
war" and disregard any meaning it might have other than
the violent one. It can also be used to describe one's struggle
to evolve as a human being or to fight oppression.
I doubt the "experts" realize that. Once they get ahold of
a word, they wring it for all it's worth, making Americans
sound ignorant about cultural and religious ambiguities.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when commentators
are referred to as pundits. "Pundit" is a Sanskrit term for a
teacher, scholar or expert in the fields of Hindu law, religion
or philosophy. But the term now refers to someone who
offers mass-media analysis or commentary on a particular
subject. It can also be a derogatory
term for media personalities who
pose as experts or those who pre-
tend to be unbiased.
In recent years, it has become a
buzzword. It is another bastardiza-
Anuradha Pandey tion of a term that has a religious
email@example.com significance. It's slightly offensive
that Ann Coulter is referred to as
a "conservative pundit" when she
doesn't have enough expert knowledge to merit that label.
Other words consistently slung around are "liberal" and
"hippie." To call someone a "liberal" is to strip him or her of
all credibility. According to Merriam-Webster's dictionary,
the word describes someone who is "broad-minded; not
defined by traditional terms." But to call someone a liberal
is to dismiss his or her integrity, according to many news
anchors. The word "conservative" doesn't have anywhere
near the same effect.
Similarly, "liberals" are often collectively labeled "hip-
pies," even though the term is about 40 years outdated.
According to Merriam-Webster, a hippie is "a usually
young person who rejects the mores of established society."
I'm a vegetarian, a liberal and a peacenik, but I'm not a hip-
"Conservatives" are those who don't favor change. That

Advertisement balloons could harm environment
On Monday, I stepped off the bus in front of
Rawlings Hall to find orange and blue balloons tied
to the railings. Assuming they were leftover decora-
tions from our beloved Orange and Blue Weekend, I
thought nothing of it. But as I made my way across
Turlington Plaza, I realized my mistake. These were
not neglected decorations but rather an irresponsible
form of advertising by everygator.com, which calls it-
self "a safe place to explore questions about who God
is and what it might be like to know God."
I am disgusted by this form of advertising. Latex
balloons are a known threat to the environment
- especially marine life. Balloons have been deemed
hazardous when released in large numbers, and the
Florida Legislature has banned the release of 10 or
more balloons within a 24-hour period. I counted more
than 10 balloons on Plaza of the Americas alone. The
balloons placed around campus by everygator.com
were tied down with yam (which is a hazard in itself),
but with the high winds of the past few days, a piece
of yar is hardly adequate to tie down a balloon.
Sunday is Earth Day. Instead of putting what is
essentially floating, brightly colored garbage all over
our beautiful campus, I suggest everygator.com finds
an advertising technique that is more environmental-
ly friendly. That way I can walk to class without being
assaulted by the lovely scent of latex.
UF libraries work to alleviate textbook-cost pain
I am writing in response to Friday's article
"Daytona student sues textbook company." The UF
Libraries are doing their part to address textbook
prices. The Marston Science Library took action af-
ter reading a 2006 article entitled, "The High Cost
of Textbooks: A convergence of Academic Libraries,
Campus Bookstores, Publishers?" This report stated
that the cost of books "rose at a rate twice that of the

annual inflation rate" and found that students spent
an average of $900 on textbooks a year.
The Marston Science Library started buying books
for high-enrollment science courses in spring 2007.
These courses include: CHM2211, EGM2511, STA2023,
PHY2048, MAC1140/1147, MAC2233, MAC2234 and
MAC2211. Books are available for students at the
Reserve Desk of the Marston Science Library. The UF
Libraries hope to increase the number of classes they
purchase books for. If any departments are interested
in donating textbooks to the UF Libraries to help in
this initiative, please contact Kathryn Kennedy at

Bakery doesn't live up to its progressive image
I regularly go to 2nd Street Bakery and pay $2.50 for
a croissant because I think it's important to support lo-
cal entrepreneurs who believe in doing business with a
social conscience. The bakery sells many fair trade and
organic items, and in an Alligator article, the owners said
they chose their location to interact with the neighbor-
hood. They donate leftover food to local organizations.
But part of running a socially conscious business
- and part of what I assume my $2.50 goes toward
- is paying employees enough to cover living expenses,
which many consider to be at least $10 per hour. This
may sound like a lot to a college student, but for an
independent adult, it's not. The bakery's employees
Starting a new business is difficult and scary, but so
is not having enough money to pay rent. Not providing
a living wage exploits the goodwill of customers who
may believe the bakery does. The point of fair trade cof-
fee and tea is to support a living wage in other countries.
Couldn't the owners of the bakery do the same for their
employees in Gainesville?

UF student dies from heart attack, friends say
By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
The break of morning daylight and the
buzz of an alarm dock signaled a normal
Thursday morning for UF student Kathleen
Monahan and her boyfriend, Ben Thompson.
It was 10:30 a.m, Thompson said. He had
a class to attend and an adviser to meet with.
Monahan had different plans, though: He said
she begged him to stay in bed, holding her, just
for a little longer.
Thompson said that morning, Monahan
told him she loved him for the first time in the
three weeks they had been dating. It would be
the last morning anyone would see her alive.
"She begged me to stay in bed holding her,
and I'm so glad I did," Thompson said. "She
died in my arms. That's where we were both

Her death came out of nowhere, he said
- her eyes simply fluttered, she suffered a
seizure and then was gone.

Monahan, who was studying criminology
and political science in her fourth year at UF,
may have had a heart attack that morning.
Thompson said he and Monahan's family are
still waiting for toxicology reports and an ex-
act cause of death from medical examiners.
"I knew she was already dead, but what
else could I do?" he said. "I wanted my baby
back. I wanted my baby back."

Teach for America recruits UF seniors to teach in low-income schools
By JESSIE COLEMAN
All she needed was for MacKenzie Moritz
to believe in her. And he did.
Moritz, a recent UF graduate, believed in
the indolent ninth-grader from the day she
switched into his world history class at John
Bartram High School in Philadelphia, Pa.
She groaned and complained. She wasn't
used to teachers who made her do work.
But Moritz buoyed her with patient sup-

When report-card day came for the third-
quarter grading period, Moritz proudly hand-
ed her an 88, a B-plus. She bounced around
the classroom, waving the certificate. A B-plus
was tough to earn in Moritz's class.
"It's really empowering when you take
an F student and see them turn around com-
pletely," Moritz said.
Moritz was one of 19 UF students who
joined Teach for America last year. The pro-
gram enlists college students to teach in needy
schools for two years after graduation. So far,
25 UF students have signed up to teach after
they graduate in May.
Jonathan Lopez, the Teach for America
recruitment director for Florida, said UF's
involvement has increased tremendously
during the past three years. In 2005, only eight
UF graduates joined the program. This year,
Lopez expects a total of at least 30 students.

senior, poses in a classroom. Husein is a

A roller-coaster ride
Moritz works hard to motivate his stu-
dents. He stays at school from about 8 a.m. to
3 p.m. every day and spends at least an hour

more rewarding than others.
"I would describe it as a roller coaster,"
Moritz said. "You have really great days
where everything goes like you plan, and you
can see success in the classroom, and there are
definitely extremely frustrating days as well."
But sometimes Moritz finds success even in
seemingly wasted lessons.
One afternoon in the teachers' lounge, a
reading teacher said her students were read-
ing a story that mentioned the Great Wall of
China. She asked if Moritz had taught about
the historical monument.'
Moritz shrugged sheepishly in reply, re-
membering the lesson and the blas6 attitudes
of his students. He half-expected to be admon-
ished by the other teacher.
Instead, he was praised. The reading
teacher said the students noticed the reference
and promptly began discussing its original
purpose to keep the Mongols of out China.
A degree for a better world
While passion and promise of relationships
motivated Husein to teach, Adam Roberts, a
computer-engineering senior, had a more logi-
cal motivator a line graph.
Roberts, who has worked with Teach for
America as an on-campus recruiter, made
about 50 classroom presentations for the or-

he showed a graph comparing students' SAT
scores to their income.
The correlation is cear: The higher the in-
come, the higher the scores and the greater the
opportunities for success in society.
Roberts wants to see that graph flatten.
"Kids on the lower end of the graph are ca-
pable," he said. "When they walk into a class-
room, the standards just aren't the same."
He put his ambitions of going to law school
aside to teach high school math in Washington,
D.C. He is uncertain about his future after fin-
ishing the program but knows he will stand
out from other job candidates.

said. "Its not going to detract at all. It's only

VT student flees after hearing rumors over breakfast
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Contributing Writer
On Monday, Tobin Gilbert, a Virginia
Tech engineering major, left his 9:05 a.m.
class early to get breakfast at a nearby din-'
He passed West Ambler Johnston Hall,
about 100 yards from his classroom, and no-
ticed police cars. He figured they were there
because "someone did something stupid."
But he said he left the dining hall as fast
as he could finish his egg-and-cheese biscuit
because he started hearing the rumors.
At first, they were inconsistent: It was
one person, it was 10 people, there were 17
injured and three dead. But it didn't matter
- rumors of a shooting, even if they were
just rumors, Gilbert said, were enough rea-
son for him to get off campus as quickly as
"When you hear that one person has
been shot on campus, you wonder why
you're there," he said.
Without knowing exactly what was going
on, Gilbert caught a ride with friends back to
his off-campus apartment. He said he called
his parents to tell them he was OK, just in
case they heard anything about a shooting.
His second class, the one he would have
been in if he hadn't left campus, was in a
building adjacent to Norris Hall the loca-
tion of the second shooting.
"My roommates and I are trying to think
of other things until we know the facts," he
Gilbert said most people are nervously
awaiting the list of the dead students. He
said he doesn't think he knew any of the
victims, but he doesn't know for sure.
"It's morbid sitting in the living room
because you don't want to watch (the news),
but you can't turn it off," he said.
Other VT students woke Monday to find
an ominous e-mail waiting for them, the
subject line reading "shooting on campus."
According to the e-mail, sent at 9:26 a.m.,
a "Shooting incident" had occurred at West
Ambler Johnston Hall, and students were
told to be cautious and contact police if they
saw anything suspicious.
"My roommates and I are trying to

Twenty-four minutes later, another e-
mail displayed a seemingly rushed subject
line: "PLease stay put."
The e-mail read: "A gunman is loose on
campus. Stay in buildings until further no-
tice. Stay away from all windows."
At 10:16 a.m., students received an e-mail
reporting that.classes were canceled.
Brittney Cardillo, a sophomore at VT
from Tampa, said she felt thankful that she
overslept and missed her classes Monday.
She lives off campus.
Because cell traffic in Blacksburg was
backed up after news of the shootings
spread, Cardillo said the Internet spread the
news the fastest.
Facebook and MySpace.com were quick-
ly updated with groups and wall postings
supporting VT students.
Some new Facebook groups include
"Remember Virginia Tech Students 4/16/

killed all those kids at Virginia Tech."

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
UNITED NATIONS Sudan
agreed Monday to let 3,000 U.N.
peacekeepers deploy in Darfur
with attack helicopters, opening
the door to the first significant
U.N. force to help beleaguered
African Union soldiers who have
been unable to halt the region's
After five months of stalling, the
government in Khartoum called for
a speedy deployment and hinted it
could approve an even larger U.N.
force that has been demanded by
the U.N. Security Council, the
United States and others.
But experts were cautious
about chances for creating that
20,000-strong force, noting Sudan's
leaders have reversed course pre-
viously after announcing vague
agreements for action in Darfur.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-
moon called Monday's agreement
"a very positive sign" and said the
U.N. and the African Union would
"move quickly" to put together the

However, he came under in-
creasing pressure from the United

Though al-Bashir's government
has a history of finding loopholes
in agreements with the U.N. and
others, the deal reached Monday
appeared to be a meaningful step
toward bringing a more effective
peacekeeping force to Darfur.
Nonetheless, U.S. diplomats
and U.N. officials said they would
remain cautious until U.N. peace-
keepers were on the ground in
Sudan's vast western province,
where more than 200,000 people
have been killed and 2.5 million
chased from their homes since the
conflict began in 2003.

agreed when they actually start to
deploy," acting U.S. Ambassador
Alejandro Wolff told reporters.

Gaga for Goats
Stories and photos by Kim Klement
Jan and Charlie Meister's farm looks
like a scene from a zoo or Noah's ark.
Jan raises Black Angus cows and
Russian Romonov sheep and tends a large
organic garden. She cares for chickens,
turkeys, guinea birds, dogs, ducks, geese
and two blue India peacocks. However,
Jan is most devoted to her goats.
She began raising goats 15 years ago
when a horse they were boarding came
with his companion: a male goat. She fell
in love with the goat, and when the goat
and his friend left, she went out and got
her own baby goat.
She now has a herd of more than 50.
Jan shows her goats around the coun-
try, and they have won many awards
and ribbons. Long, strenuous days are
typical, but Jan thrives from the uncondi-
tional love her goats provide.
She is more than a caretaker to her
goats she is also their neighbor. Six
years ago the Meister's lost their home
in a fire, and the two of them now oc-
cupy a section of their barn next to their

Employees' money-saving efforts earn big awards for UF
Several University of Florida employees
have been recognized in the 2007 Prudential
Financial-Davis Productivity Award pro-
gram for their efforts to save the university
money. The annual awards honor govern-
ment employees in Florida for innovation,
creativity, and smart work that increases
performance and productivity in delivering
services and products.
This year the UF FICA Alternative Team
will receive a $500 award for its implemen-
tation of a retirement plan for temporary
employees. Besides helping employees save
for retirement, the plan also has saved the
university millions in Social Security taxes
since it began in January 2006.
"We estimate that this will save the uni-
versity over $4 million each year," said Paula
Varnes Fussell, the associate vice president
for human resource services and functional
project leader for the team. "This was the
best team we've had in a long time on a
project. Everything went smoothly because
of their dedication."
A commemorative plaque will go to the
Electronic Personnel Action Form Project
Team for its work streamlining human
resources transactions through enhanced
electronic forms. The Student eBill Imple-
mentation Team will receive a certificate of
commendation for reducing paper and post-
age use through an electronic billing system.
Anthony Bouton, the only individual Da-
vis award winner, also will receive a certificate
of commendation for digitizing and editing
hundreds of video and music clips for classes
in the Warrington College of Business.
After seeing instructors struggle to access
different audio and video file formats during
lectures, the audiovisual specialist decided
to create digital files of all the media to save
time and make recording a lecture much
"We've been digitizing classes for quite
some time now. I just took that idea and
put it on a smaller level," Bouton said.
"I appreciate the nomination by Profes-
sor Robert Emerson because it shows that -
teachers are appreciative of my efforts."
Winners will attend the University of
Florida Davis Productivity Awards Recogni-
tion Luncheon from noon to 2 p.m. May

"The awards recognize both individual

Tennis veterans revel in latest success
U WHITNEY BENIK HAS CLINCHED FOUR
GATORS VICTORIES THIS SEASON.
By PHIL KEGLER
Three best friends sat together laughing and jok-
ing. They had just clinched their second consecutive
Southeastern Conference regular season champion-
Senior Nina Suvak with juniors Diana Srebrovic
and Whitney Benik have helped lead the No. 3 UF
women's tennis team to another successful season.
Through years of being teammates, they've
formed bonds that extend well past their time on
--. All three won their singles matches Saturday
against South Carolina, and Suvak and Benik
clinched the doubles point.

Gators claim No. 3 seed for tourney
By PHIL KEGLER
The bar has been raised.
The UF men's tennis team came into
this season with lower expectations after
having a preseason ranking outside of the
top five for the first time in a few years.
Coach Andy Jackson said it's time
to up those expectations now, after the
No. 17 Gators (12-6, 7-4 Southeastern
Conference) finished tied for third in the

"I was really impressed by
the way she played against
