UF ACADEMICS

Biology major surges in popularity at UF


By HILARY LEHMAN
Alligator Writer
hlehman@alligator.org
Anabelle Outar liked biology but said she
thought some classes in UF's interdisciplinary
biology program would do little to prepare
her for medical school.
But with the creation of a new biology ma-
jor this summer, Outar, a UF junior, decided
to switch her major from biochemistry and
molecular biology to biology.
Now, UF's biology major is already one
of the most popular majors at UF, a UF news
release stated.
The interdisciplinary major, is being com-


pletely replaced by the biology major because
of course overlap, said Margaret Fields, assis-
tant dean and director of biological sciences in
UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Outar, now in her first semester on the pre-
professional track of the biology major, called
the new biology program the "best prepara-
tion" for her future goals.
Spring will be the third semester for stu-
dents to register for classes as biology majors.
About 4,000 students are taking the core
courses required for biology majors, Fields
said.
Almost 1,100 students are in the major, she
added.
Before the creation of the major, UF was


the only university out of Florida's 11 public
universities that did not offer a general biol-
ogy degree.
Biology has many of
the courses required for
.' professional schools such
as medical school, veteri-
nary school and pharmacy
school, making the major
attractive to students seek-
ing to enter those programs
Fields after graduation.
After the creation of an
interdisciplinary biology major during the
2000-2001 school year, rapid growth of the
program prompted the decision to create an


official biology major, Fields said.
Fields said the biology major was not nec-
essary in the past because pre-professional
students could take the biology classes they
needed through the zoology and botany ma-
jors.
The main difference between the interdis-
ciplinary major and the new biology major is
transparency, Fields said.
She said the new major, which is being
offered through both CLAS and the College
of Agricultural and Life Sciences, is easier to
find and add because students do not have to
complete an application process to get into the
program.

9-year-old joins


local protesters

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Fiona Tennyson can't drive, get a tattoo or see a PG-13
movie by herself. But what's most frustrating to the 9-year-
old activist is that she can't vote, she said.
"The president is kind of making lies," Fiona said as
her tiny peace-sign earrings swung in the breeze Monday.
"Sometimes it gets me annoyed."
Fiona joined about 75 other protesters on a march from the
Reitz Union to Tigert Hall and finally to City Hall on Monday
afternoon to rally against the Iraq war and global warming.
"The president is kind of making lies.
Sometimes it gets me annoyed."
Fiona Tennyson
9-year-old activist

Members of UF's Students for a Democratic Society, a stu-
dent protest group, led the demonstration, which had several
goals.
Students wanted to remind UF President Bernie Machen
that transparent and responsible investing should be a top
priority, said Tina Steiger, a member of the group.
Steiger said the group also wanted to raise awareness
about the Iraq war and global warming because many stu-
dents don't care.
Four-foot-tall Fiona agreed.
"There's melting in the Arctic," she said. "The polar bears
are gonna get extinct, and they can't really swim for a long
time."
Diane Solmo, one of Fiona's two moms, said she and
Fiona drove the nine hours to Gainesville from Key West to
see a science program featuring her other daughter, Chelsea

Stadium Study Session
Chris Allison, a UF sports management junior, studies in the stands of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Monday
afternoon. When games aren't being played, the stadium is open to people who want to exercise or catch
up on homework. Monday's warm and sunny weather drew numerous students to the stadium to relax
and study.


While the UF
men's basketball
team showed some
encouraging signs
on offense in its
scrimmage Sunday,
the coaching staff
was unimpressed
by the defensive
performance.

Circus to visit Gainesville


* THE COLE BROS. CIRCUS IS
HITTING TOWN WEDNESDAY.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
With pastel poodles and a "Globe of Death"
in tow, Cole Bros. Circus will move its Big Top
into Gainesville on Wednesday.
Shows will take place at The Oaks Mall on
Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30 p.m. and
7:30 p.m.
Renee Storey, vice president of adminis-
tration for the circus, said Cole Bros. Circus
is known for having the longest continuous
history of any circus in the U.S. and was estab-
lished in 1886.
Storey said Cole Bros. Circus staff and
performers, who have come from all over the
world, have created a tight-knit family.
She said their office manager is from the
Ukraine and used to perform in a flying tra-
peze group.
The office manager is also the flying cannon-
ball at the circus performance, Storey said.
Some of the ticket takers also juggle on
horseback, she said.
Most of the employees have two to three
jobs, she said.
"You're almost sure to find that they come


from someplace interesting, and they do some-
thing really fascinating and sometimes danger-
ous," Storey said.
The most popular circus act of the year has
been the "ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of
Death," Storey said.
"In our performance, the 'Globe of Death'
opens the show," she said. "The kids just love it
because it's got motorcycle riders."
Two motorcyclists ride around in a giant
globe and do daredevil tricks.
People are encouraged to come out
Wednesday while the circus is propping up the
tent, she said.
Local "I hope they have the oppor-
News tunity to speak with some of our
performers," Storey said.
Their season, which began in
March, had scheduled stops in Louisiana, New
York City and Washington, D.C.
The most recent performances have been
in Tallahassee. Storey said she thinks that the
circus is a great way for college students to un-
wind and take a break from their studies.
"It's perfectly OK to be a kid," she said.
"There are not too many places like that left."
When purchased in advance, general ad-
mission tickets are $12. Adult prices, for ages 13
and up, go up to $17 on site.
Free children's tickets can also be found on
the circus' Web site.

Time drags for students waiting for CLAS advisers


By MARIA FERNANDA CASTRO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some people drool, some read and others
have their ears plugged with headphones.
Jessica Reddish just wishes her seat had a
headrest to make her experience more bear-
able.
Reddish, an anthropology junior,
had been waiting for 25 minutes to
see her academic adviser last week.
She was not the only one.
Twenty-six other students were also
waiting to see an adviser with her at
the Academic Advising Center of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Students are waiting between 45 to 90 minutes
to see an adviser during one of the busiest
times of the semester, Albert Matheny, director
of the Academic Advising Center, wrote in an
e-mail.
Many students are seeking advice before
advanced registration for the spring semester


begins on Monday, often to get holds on their
records removed.
The college has a student-to-adviser ratio
of 1,200-to-1, while in other colleges the ratio
is 250-to-1, Matheny wrote.
"We do remarkably well in the AAC
[Academic Advising Center] when you con-
sider this discrepancy," he wrote.
In the last few years, the number of stu-
dents in the college has grown from 10,000 to
12,300, but the number of advisers stayed the
same due to budget constraints in the college,
he wrote.
This year, the center is getting help from
graduate assistants and retired faculty mem-
bers "who basically work out of the goodness
of their hearts," he wrote.
The extra help is aimed at giving the center
more advisers and staff members available to
students, Matheny wrote, and if all goes as
planned, an additional hired adviser will start
working Jan. 1.
"I hope we can use this to address the ad-


vising bottlenecks," he wrote. "That would be
very nice, and students would see a big impact
on wait time."
"I hope we can use this to address
the advising bottlenecks. That
would be very nice, and students
would see a big impact on wait
time."
Albert Matheny
Academic Advising Center director

In order to avoid waiting, students should
plan ahead by making sure they are seeing the
right adviser and going to the center early in
the morning, he wrote.
Coming between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. is not
recommended because most students plan to
go during those times, he wrote.
The center is open Monday through Friday
from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but many students are


in class during those times.
"I don't mind waiting, but I hate to miss
class," said Stephen Phillips, an anthropol-
ogy junior. He had to miss class after he was
waiting for more than one hour for advising
last week.
The college's debt may also be a factor
slowing down the advising process, Matheny
wrote.
The recent proposal by the Florida
Legislature and the Board of Governors for a
tuition increase will directly benefit students
because the money will go toward hiring more
advisers, he wrote.
"CLAS understands that we are short-
handed, and I believe that help will soon be on
the way," he wrote.
In the meantime, students like Reddish will
have to linger in the waiting area at the center.
Computer outlets could help encourage
students to be patient, she said, but now all
she does is "stare obliviously at other people"
while she waits.

First new fire station in 28 years could be coming


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Gainesville Fire Rescue could
soon be getting its first new fire sta-
tion since 1979.
The City Commission passed
three petitions Monday night that
will allow for the construction of
Fire Station No. 8 on 4127 NW 34th
St.


The land is part of a parcel that
belongs to A Child's Place child
care center, owned by Desjam
Enterprises Inc.
The petitions authorized split-
ting the lot and changing land use
and zoning classifications for the
fire station.
Commissioner Ed Braddy and
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan brought
up concerns about noise at the meet-
ing. The proposed location for the


station borders a residential area.
"You may have retirees, you may
have stay-at-home parents, you may
have people who are not gone dur-
ing the course of the day," Hanrahan
said. "You need to work hard at that.
We want to be good neighbors."
Gainesville Fire Chief Bill
Northcutt, who also spoke at the
meeting, said the station will try
to keep noise down, especially at
night.


"We want to be good
neighbors."
Pegeen Hanrahan
Gainesville mayor

"I think the intent will be not
to use those sirens until absolutely
necessary," he said.
Chris Dawson, a planner with
Causseaux, Hewett, & Walpole Inc.,
said at the meeting that planners


will do what they can to prevent
disruption to the neighbors. The
organization would be building the
station.
This includes constructing the
building back from the edge of the
property and surrounding the prop-
erty with vegetation, he said.
In planning the vegetation, the
planners will try to retain as many
of the property's current trees as
possible, he said.


Faculty Senate may overhaul Student Honor Court


* A COMMITTEE WANTS MORE
FACULTY INVOLVEMENT.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@ailigator.org

Students charged with cheating might
lose the chance to have their cases heard in
front of the Student Honor Court.
A report from a committee of UF's Faculty
Senate at its Thursday meeting would elimi-
nate the handling of academic dishonesty
cases by the court, citing the lack of faculty
involvement as "problematic" and "of sig-
nificant concern."
Neil Patel, Student Honor Court chancel-
lor, said he met with Student Body President
Ryan Moseley on Monday and said they
were still working on a response to the pos-
sible change.
Patel said removing the court would take
away an important avenue of student in-
volvement in academic conduct cases.


Kim Tanzer, a UF architecture professor
who co-chairs the committee, said the Senate
is-not looking to dismantle the court.
Mainly, the committee's research showed
that faculty members want additional input
in cases involving academic conduct, Tanzer
said.
Because of this, some professors were
taking matters into their own hands when it
came to discipline, the report states.
Generally, students charged with academ-
ic dishonesty can choose to have their cases
heard by the Student Conduct Committee,
which is composed of students and faculty,
or by the Student Honor Court.
Other venues for hearing cases include
an administrative hearing, the Greek Judicial
Board, or the Health Science Center's and
the Levin College of Law's student conduct
committees.
In the Student Honor Court, law students
act as the defense and prosecution, each pre-
senting a case to a panel of students.
The panel determines whether the ac-
cused student is responsible for the charge


and recommends an appropriate punishment
to the Dean of Student's Office, which makes
a final decision.
Tanzer said faculty could only participate
in the process as witnesses.
She said the purpose of her committee was
not to specifically target the Student Honor
Court but to streamline the different methods
of handling academic conduct cases.
The committee recommended limiting


the investigation of academic conduct cases
to faculty hearings, the Student Conduct
Committee and the Health Science Center
and law school committees.
Tanzer said the Faculty Senate will vote to
endorse or reject the committee's findings at
its Nov. 15 meeting.
If the Senate endorses the recommenda-
tions, Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin could make the changes.

Hate to Wait

More CLAS advisers

needed
It's UF's eternal problem. No, not too few season football
tickets. Not Friday's crossword puzzle being too hard for
you to finish during your chemistry lecture. Not when
your professor schedules an exam for the morning after
Halloween.
We're talking about the lack of advisers for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences.
If you've ever been lucky enough to be awarded a hold
or if you accidentally forgot to take some critical tracking
courses, you might know what it's like to have to sit in the
hell that is the Academic Advising Center lobby.
We shudder just to think about it.
Academic advising, and presumably the center, are sup-
posed to be lucky recipients of some of the money from the
Tuition Differential Program, which will begin bringing in
funds next fall. UF President Bernie Machen has said he
would use the some of the money to hire new advisers.
Hopefully CLAS' student-to-adviser ratio will improve
from 1,200 to one. But in order for CLAS' ratio to be com-
parable to UF's other colleges' ratios of 250 students to one
adviser, CLAS would need a total of 49 advisers.
Right now, it only has 11.
We know that is completely unrealistic, but even doubling
its number of current advisers would mean only one adviser
for every 560 students.
For now, students are advised (ha!) to avoid coming to the
Academic Advising Center right before registration begins,
but for students with holds or who have no clue what to take
next term, that may not be an option.
We suggest you exhaust all your other options your
department, phone calls or e-mails, your Preview staffer
- before you trudge down to the center. If you absolutely
must go, make sure you bring along an iPod, your laptop,
some homework, a pillow or a crossword puzzle just not
Friday's.


Zone Coverage


P planning on getting
wasted in Jacksonville
this weekend for the
Florida-Georgia football
game?
If you answered yes, this
is for you.
If you party too heartily
at The Jacksonville Landing,
you'll be able to hang out in
one of three Sideline Student
Safety Zones. The best part?
No legal ramifications!
We're glad our university
isn't in denial about students
drinking, regardless of their
age.
And it's nice to know
that if your friend or you
- has a few too many of
those drinks that are served
in a fishbowl, you'll have


a place to charge your cell
phone, catch a cab or just
drink something without
alcohol in it.
Of course, students
shouldn't depend on the
zones or drink to the point
of blacking out because they
know the zones are there.
Last year, UF, the
University of Georgia and
the city of Jacksonville part-
nered to provide two zones
for the intoxicated, with the
aim of reducing accidents
and violence.
We hope students who
drink themselves into
oblivion take advantage of
the safety zones, and we
hope everyone stays safe this
weekend.

Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinion


Column

A minor proposal for registration season


t's already time to register for classes, and we're all too
busy with this semester to care about the next.
Isn't that the way it always happens? Registration
has a tendency to pop up right in the middle of exams, so
we don't spend enough time choosing classes.
Each and every semester, we naively feel like we'll be
able to sign up for exactly the courses we need when we
want to attend them. Too bad it doesn't work like that.
If war is hell, registration must be hell's musty base-
ment.
It's time to use those extra credits for something worth-
while. General education classes would be great fillers for
your credit quota, but they're no more than fillers. Gen-ed
courses are the most worthless classes offered.
Be honest with me: How many of you actually remem-
ber anything from Age of Dinosaurs? How much are you
really going to learn from the newly required "diversity"
credits? If the classes weren't so blasted easy, people might
actually show up.
I'm petitioning the university to add a new minor that
students could choose in lieu of gen-ed requirements. The
minor would give students just as liberal an education and
actually equip them for the real world.
Ladies and gentlemen, you could be among the first in
the country to study Argumentative Theory.
This course of study will subject the student to a num-
ber of diverse opinions on an equally diverse amount of
subjects. These 16 credits will validate a candidate's ability
to effectively justify their many different opinions.
In your first semester, you'd be required to take four
credits of Theory vs. Theory. This class would highlight
the differences between scientific theories, which a large
number of scientists agree upon, and everyday theories,
which are backed by no factual data.
Evolution and gravity would not be debated.
Next, you'd have a choice between Actual Statistics
and Media Statistics, either course for four credits. Both


sues, but only one of them would
correctly analyze the facts.
The other would prepare you
for a career at Fox News.
A Twenty-first Century
Kyle Cox Economics, another four-credit
course, will benefit nearly every-
letters@alligator.org body on campus because there's
nothing more disturbing than
hearing a chemistry major talk about the trade deficit.
Topics would include "Minimum-wage and its actual
effect on society" and "Prohibition of sex and illegal drugs,
and not being able to gain tax revenues from either."
The most controversial class, two-credit Race and
Culture, would be unlike any ever offered. For each week
of study, students would be asked to prepare a presenta-
tion on members of a different culture.
Any student receiving lower than a B on any project
will be required to spend the rest of the semester living in
the country where that culture is most prevalent.
The student would be dropped off without food, mon-
ey or language lessons and be expected to adjust to the
culture accordingly. Students may not want to skip week
seven, when North Korea will be covered in detail.
Note that Race and Culture would have a two-credit
corequisite titled Immigration: Your Family Did at One
Point, Too.
In successfully completing the minor, students will be
able to make legitimate decisions about how the world
works.
I'd like to think all of us would sign up for the minor,
but I know better. It's too hard to research an issue prior to
forming an opinion.
Good luck with your gen-ed courses!

Letters to the Editor
Protesters still active regarding Tasering incident
I am writing in response to the DART issued Friday
to protesters who didn't show up at the policy forum
regarding Andrew Meyer's Tasering.
Come on, Alligator editors. I want to see some more
effort, some more vision in expressing those opinions
before I see some attempt at that lovable Colbert-ish
wit. I know the new activism on campus has presented
you a rotund, inviting, already-basted-by-televi-
sion-talking-heads-past rump to sink your salivating
sarcasm into. But I dare say, haye some more taste!
Demonstrate that journalistic hunger for credible re-
search and authorship!
Darts & Laurels once again derided students
alarmed at a fellow student's Tasering for only seeking
the unstructured, attention-getting path of protest, in-
stead of the public forum. I ask the editorial board, was
it aware that the meeting established as a consequence
of the protest was held and well received last week
between UF President Bernie Machen and a delegation
of protesters? Did they stop to consider there's reason
for little faith in the Student Government crony-laden
review panel? Steps were taken. Check your facts.

One team eliminated from SFCC internship contest


* FOUR TEAMS ARE LEFT TO
COMPETE IN THE CONTEST.

By EVA MAE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

There were squeals of joy from Team
White Bengals and disappointed looks from
Team Krackerjacks on Monday.
Five teams, each with four SFCC stu-
dents, crowded into a conference room at
Charles Perry Construction, where the first


team was eliminated in an SFCC contest for
internships throughout the state called The
Interns.
At the elimination ceremony, Breck
Weingart, president of Charles -Perry
Construction, announced the teams that
would be moving on for three more tasks.
"This is a promotion," he said. "We're
not firing anyone, we're promoting four
teams."
Weingert announced Team Bombsquad,
Big Red, Intellects and White Bengals would
move on. Team Krackerjacks was eliminated


from the competition.
The teams were each assigned a construc-
tion project from Rebuild Gainesville that
took place Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
said Averial McKenzie, an
Santa Fe SFCC student and proj-
Community ect coordinator for The
College Interns.
Projects included build-
ing front porch stairs and creating a swing
set, McKenzie said.
At the elimination ceremony, Alan
Rezaei, co-coordinator of the project, an-


nounced the next task.
The second task focuses on journalism
skills and is hosted by The Gainesville Sun.
Rezaei said it is called "Reporting the News,
Building a Newspaper."
The objective of the assignment is to
create a one-page spread in the SFCC Saint
Sentinel that focuses on the skills necessary
for students entering the journalism work-
force, he said.
Essence Glover, 17, a member of team
White Bengals, was so happy that her team
made it through that she let out a scream.

City Commission discusses development project


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

A proposed development near
Gainesville Regional Airport
continued to cause contro-
versy Monday night at a City
Commission meeting:
East Gainesville Development
Partners, headed by its petitioner
Ronald Carpenter, has asked the
city to rezone land near the airport
for residential and commercial use
in its development.
Though some were in favor
of the development, others pro-
tested against the developers, East
Gainesville Development Partners,
before the commission heard the
group's proposal.


The land, located at 2100 NE*
39th Ave., surrounds the Ironwood
Golf Course and includes 90 acres
of Gainesville wetlands and part of
the Murphree Wellfield.

"This would be a boom to
. East Gainesville. With the
Wal-Mart coming in, this
would only make things
better."
Milford Griner
Alachua County Ministerial
Alliance president

Developers want to change
from an area that is reserved for
industrial, commercial and single-

family use to a multipurpose
planned use district.
This will allow developers to
build up to 1,500 units, where at
least one resident must have at
least 55,500 assisted living units,
100,000 square feet of office space
and 100,000 square feet of com-
mercial and retail space, according
to the meeting agenda.
The Rev. Milford Griner,
president of the Alachua County
Ministerial Alliance, said that as a
resident of East Gainesville, he be-
lieves the area is being overlooked
for developments.
"This would be a boom to East
Gainesville," Griner said. "With
the Wal-Mart coming in, this
would only make things better."
Danielle Emenhiser, director of
community political affairs with
Student Government, said stu-
dents should be aware of all sides
of the development debate.
It's her job to ensure UF's stu-
dent body stays informed about
issues affecting the city.
"I want students to see what
goes on outside the campus bor-
ders," Emenhiser said. "There's so
much going on in this community
that they need to be aware of."
The city planning board has
advised the City Commission to
deny the developers' first peti-
tion to change the industrial land
located dose to the airport to the
Planned Use District category, but
wants the commission to approve
the other petitions to change the
single-family and recreation land
to planned use.
Dean Mimms, a Gainesville city
employee, informed the commis-
sion about the environmental is-
sues and potential noise problems
if the commission approved all the
zone changes.
He said 359 acres of the prop-
erty are in areas where residents
would be affected by the noise
levels.


Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff
Mark Garland, an environmental reviewer, shows a map outlining
the Gainesville Regional Airport noise zone.


"Our consultant has advised us
that future residents are likely to
be surprised by the noise level,"
Mimms said. "Complaints for
compensation can be expected."
Ted Baldwin, the aviation con-
sultant, went on to say residents of
the development would be likely
to find the exposure unacceptable
and highly annoying.
. Baldwin said he did not take
actual noise readings from the
airport; he went off the numbers
given to him by the city and the


airport.
Mimms also talked to Mark
Garland, an environmental re-
viewer.
Garland said the area up for
rezoning had been listed as one of
the top three locations in the city
that should be preserved.
"This proposal doesn't address
the fact that the city is supposed to
be protecting this land," Baldwin
said.
The commission will make its
final decision today at 3 p.m.

STUDENT SAFETY

Safety zones return for game


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF will host three Sideline Student Safety
Zones near The Jacksonville Landing on Friday
and Saturday in Jacksonville, a news release
from Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students,
stated.
That's one more zone than there was last
year, the first year the zones were established.
They were created by UF, the University of
Georgia and the city of Jacksonville.
UF students who need first aid, telephones,
water, coffee, snacks or computer access at the
Florida-Georgia game will have three safe ha-
vens where legal trouble is no threat, the release
stated. Taxi service and trolleys will also be
available.
The goal of the zones is to minimize violence
and accidents over the weekend. Two UF stu-
dents died during Florida-Georgia game week-
ends in 2004 and 2005.
Representatives from UF and the University
of Georgia and volunteers from Jacksonville will
staff the zones.
Jacksonville and UF's University Police
Department officers will also be on duty
Saturday night, but students visiting the zones


don't need to worry about legal repercussions
for alcohol issues, the release stated.
"We're not here for that," Zdziarski said in
the release. "We're there strictly to help people."
The three zone locations will be behind the
Starbucks inside The Landing, at the intersec-
tion of Laura Street and Independent Drive
and behind the Welcome Center across from
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
"We're there strictly to
help people."
Gene Zdzlarski
UF's dean of students

The zones will be open from 4 p.m. Friday
to 3 a.m. Saturday and from noon Saturday to 3
a.m. Sunday.
The turnout at the zones in 2006 was success-
ful, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. UF still
made some minor changes.
The locations will have more phone chargers
and outlets available, Orlando said, in addition
to more computer access.
It's important that students understand the
guarantee that they won't face punishment if
they show up intoxicated, he said.
That's why the coffee is there, he added.


Growl adds to lineup


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org
Following its theme of "Nation
of Champions," Gator Growl has
added another championship-win-
ning guest to its lineup of entertain-
ers and UF athletes.
Billy Donovan, UF men's bas-
ketball coach, will appear with the
team at Gator Growl.
The 84th annual Gator Growl,
billed as the world's largest stu-
dent-run pep rally, will kick off
Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. in Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium.
Aron Weingard, Gator Growl
producer, said this is the first time
he's heard of the basketball team
and its coach appearing at the pep
rally.
"I know the students will be
pumped up to see Billy and Urban
in the same night, live," Weingard
said.


Weingard said his staff started
looking into Donovan's appear-
ance in the summer and made the
final arrangement about two weeks
ago.
The appearance only made
sense, given the pep rally's theme,
he said.
"It's a great opportunity for the
students of UF to meet the new
faces of Gators basket-
On ball," he said. "We're
CampUS celebrating champion-
ships, and it wouldn't
be complete without them."
In a Gator Growl news release,
Donovan said the team was excited
about its scheduled appearance.
"We're thrilled and honored
to take part in such a prestigious
and time-honored tradition as
Gator Growl," Donovan said. "It's
one of the truly special events for
this community and for the entire
Gator Nation."

Project Vote Smart tour makes stop in Gainesville


* A MOBILE CLASSROOM
CAME TO A LIBRARY.

By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

A patriotically painted bus trans-
formed into a teaching vessel for
voters educated passersby Monday
about a political education project.
Project Vote Smart parked its
mobile classroom outside the Tower
Road Branch Library during its first
nationwide tour.
Milagros Ruiz, 40, learned about
the project for the first time after
bumping into a project representa-
tive.
"This is great, because its goal is
to educate voters, and there is noth-
ing worse than a blind voter," said
Ruiz, a Gainesville teacher.
Jan Gaines stopped at the Project
Vote Smart bus while on her way
into the library.
S"The 2008 presidential election is
very important and informed voters
are the key," Gaines said. "This proj-
ect will help get voters information
easily."
Jon Arnold, national bus tour
coordinator for the project, wearing
the project's purple polo shirt, led
six people onto the red, white and
blue bus and began a presentation
inside the mobile classroom, which
seats 22 people.
He demonstrated how to use the


Project Vote Smart Web site and in-
troduced a 10-minute video.
A patriotic melody began play-
ing in the background of the video,
which detailed the history and cur-
rent functions of the project.


Gainesville is the 18th stop on
the tour, which began in Melbourne
three weeks ago.
The tour, which was conceptual-
ized in June, is meant to teach vot-
ers about the project and provide a


means to educate Americans about
political candidates and lawmakers,
Arnold said.
"Florida has been such an im-
portant state in the last few elec-
tions," Arnold said. "That is why we


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
Jan Gaines receives information from Jon Arnold, Project Vote Smart national bus tour coordinator, on
Monday at the Tower Road Branch Library.


started here."
The project was created after
two politicians spent an evening
discussing the negative direction of
politics and how candidates spent
most of their time attacking each
other rather than informing voters,
Arnold said.
Sixteen years and 6,000 people
later, U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater
and Project Vote Smart President
Richard Kimball's creation has built
the country's first voter's self-de-
fense system, Arnold said.
The voter's self-defense system
researches, investigates and con-
firms relevant facts about 40,000
or so U.S. political candidates and
lawmakers year-round.
The project provides information
like voting records, issue positions,
speeches and public statements, said
Jeremy Clemens, legislative research
director for the project.
The information compiled by
the project is uploaded into a public
online database, which has received
as many as 16 million hits per day,
Clemens said.
"Our Web site is the just the
objective, un-biased facts, a 'meat
and potatoes' kind of place, where
a voter can go to find information
about candidates and lawmakers,"
Clemens said.
The project does not accept help
from special interest groups, corpo-
rations or the government, Arnold
said.


Many students do


not use phone book


By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Andrea Booher owns a
phone book, but she never
uses it.
"It's a waste of paper,"
Booher said.
The 20-year-old aerospace
engineering student said she
usually uses the Internet when
she needs to look something
up.
While some students say
they do not use their phone
books, a new edition of The
Talking Phone Book hits the
streets of Gainesville this month
with a 15-page guide to UF as
well as local maps, coupons and
restaurant guides with menus.
Sharon Blansett, assistant
director of housing at UF, said
the university doesn't distribute
a lot of phone books for on-cam-
pus housing because students
don't use them.
She said UF used to receive
thousands of phone books to
distribute on campus. There
would be enough for each
room, suite and apartment, plus
extras.
"We would have all these
stacks of phone books in the
lobby areas," Blansett said.


Only about 10 to 20 students
would use the phone books
distributed, she said. Students
began to complain about the
books sitting in the lobbies col-
lecting dust.
"They would say 'What a
waste we have piles and piles
of phone books,'" Blansett said.
Eventually, housing officials
recycled the phone books at the
end of the spring semesters and
told the phone companies to
significantly
Around cut their dis-
Gainesville tribution.
Blansett
said she thinks most students
use the Internet to replace their
need for a phone book.
Greg Garrick, vice president
of marketing for The Talking
Phone Book, said the name for
the phone book being distrib-
uted this month comes from a
feature the company used to
offer.
People could call a number
listed in their phone book that
would direct them to recordings
of their daily horoscopes, sports
updates and scores, he said.
Now, the company only
provides information through
its phonebook distribution and
its Web site.

Energy may be the defining issue
of this century. Our quality of life,
economy, standard of living and
security depend on clean, afford-
able and reliable energy. The limited
supply of fossil energy, its accelerated
consumption, and a dependence on
unstable countries for fossil fuel supply
are major U.S. economic and secu-
rity issues. Moreover, due to Florida's
unique coastal geography and southern
latitude, it is the state with both the
most to gain by harnessing its abun-
dant renewable energy resources, and
the most to lose if it doesn't.
We are rich in renewable energy re-
sources, particularly biomass and solar,
yet we're currently dependent on fossil
fuels. This dependency contributes
to global warming and the associated
increased risk of violent weather and
rising ocean levels that threaten the
residents living near our 1,350 miles of
coastline.
More than 150 University of
Florida faculty are hard at work each
day developing new technologies -
from fuel cells, batteries and solar cells,
to biofuels, nuclear power and green
building construction, to name just a
few in order to provide a sustain-
able energy future for Florida and the
world. This year, the Florida Institute
for Sustainable Energy (FISE) www.
energy.ufl.edu was created to coor-
dinate and promote the vast energy
research across campus.
In addition, we were able to secure
a $4.5 million Florida Center of Excel-
lence award to create the FISE Energy
Technology Incubator. This incubator,
currently under construction in Rhines
and Rogers Halls, is a user facility for
faculty, staff and students, to acceler-
ate commercialization of UF's energy
research so that it can have the greatest
impact on society.
It is my hope that someday soon
we will be driving hybrid cars based on
UF's fuel cell and battery technology,
and operating on biofuel created from
UF technology.

Director, Florida Institute for
Sustainable Energy

UF celebrates National Campus Sustainability Day


For the third
year in a row,
the University of
Florida's Office of
Sustainability will
celebrate National
Campus Sustain-
ability Day. The
event starts at 10
a.m. on Oct. 24
and features a
number of activities
designed to raise
awareness of cam-
pus sustainability
efforts.
The day will
begin on the Reitz
Student Union
North Lawn, with
President Machen
addressing the
annual Sustainabil-
ity Report Card.
Following the ad-
dress, the Student

Government Envi-
ronmental Affairs
Cabinet will hold a forum on the renew-
able energy fee that was passed in a recent
student government election, said Melissa
Karr, Office of Sustainability intern. The
50-cent per credit hour fee passed with 78
percent approval last spring.
Throughout the day, a variety of student
groups and community organizations will
provide food, games and information.
Visitors can use the Eco-Footprint calcula-
tor provided by "Gators for a Sustainable
Campus" to learn about their individual
impact on the environment, and learn ways
to lessen it. Another group, the American
Solar Energy Society, will provide a solar-
powered tricycle, the "Photon."
"The basic goal of the day is to raise
awareness, show support to organizations
making a difference and enjoy being sus-
tainable," Karr said.
Groups such as these are educating
the Gator Nation and paving the way
for a university of the future, one with a

negligible impact on the environment, said
Anna Prizzia, outreach coordinator with
the Office of Sustainability.
"President Machen's goal for the uni-
versity is complete carbon neutrality by the
year 2020," Prizzia said.
While it may appear to be a lofty goal,
UF is making great strides through many
different methods.
All over campus, cleaning crews have
switched to "green" cleaning supplies and
all paper towels and toilet paper are made
of 100 percent recyclable materials, Prizzia
said. Also, campus buildings arc using
paint and carpet which is low in VOCs, a
volatile type of chemical which is harmful
to the environment.
While efforts are being made to increase
sustainability in existing buildings, new
construction takes that effort one step
further.
"All new construction on campus will
be designed to receive a LEED (Leadership

silver or higher certi-
fication," Prizzia said.
If successful, these
efforts would result in
the high certification
- based on environ-
mentally friendly and
sustainable criteria -
as designated by the
U.S. Green Building
Council.
One UF building
already is not only
"green" in the figura-
tive sense, but also
literally. The Charles
R. Perry Construction
Yard Building has a
roof which contains
soil and growing
plants. The green roof
helps reduce storm
runoff, insulates
the building against
heat and sound, and
improves the aesthetic


value of the building.
Waste reduction is another effort to
meet the 2020 campus goal. With the help
of concerned students, staff and faculty,
the solid waste output has been greatly
reduced.
"We've partnered with gatorlist.net to
offer people a free way to give away things
they might normally throw away," Prizzia
said.
Besides the more direct, people-to-peo-
ple recycling, the Office of Sustainability
and its volunteers and interns also work on
programs such as collecting recyclables on
game days, when they are often thrown in
with other refuse, Prizzia said. These pro-
grams show the commitment of the Gator
Nation to sustainability, and the dedication
of the volunteers.
"The student commitment is really
amazing," Prizzia said. "We really couldn't
do it without them."

Team Gator Nation
drives into semi-finals
Team Gator Nation recently won a spot
in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge semi-
finals after University of Florida engineers
turned a 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
into a fully autonomous driving machine fonm
this year's competition.
On Oct. 26-31, Team Gator Nation will
compete in the Urban Challenge National
Qualification Event. If the team qualifies
as a finalist, they later will compete in the
Urban Challenge final event on Nov. 3. The
cash prizes are $2 million for first place, $1
million for second place, and $500,000 for
third place.
DARPA, the research and development
organization for the Department of Defense,
has sponsored the challenges since the first
race in 2004 to encourage the development
of autonomous robotic vehicle technology
to help save lives on the battlefield.
Competing vehicles will conduct simu-
lated military supply missions. As part of the
challenge, vehicles must merge into moving
traffic, navigate traffic circles, and avoid
moving obstacles "as well as someone with a
California driver's license," said Tony Tether,
director of DARPA.

In an emergency, administrators will now
be able to immediately send text or voice
messages to the entire student body or stu-
dents located in a specific campus building.
Because the addresses and phone num-
bers will be used only in the event of an
emergency, they will be kept private and are
exempt from Florida public records laws.
The collection of contact information
is one part of a larger emergency notifica-
tion program designed to ensure the instant
communication between UF administra-
tion and students needed in any crisis.
Also included in the new response plan
is a system of bullhorn-like mobile warning
devices that can be mounted on university
police vehicles.
These measures are additions to the
emergency communication methods already
in use, such as e-mail messages, press releases
and posts on the UF home page.

UF's new biology major has six tracks


BIOLOGY, from Page 1


The new biology major has six tracks.
The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences of-
fers three: natural science, biotechnology and applied
biology. CLAS offers biology and biology secondary
education.
Thetlast-track is pre-professional, which is offered
through both colleges.
The previous interdisciplinary major only offered
three tracks.
Walter Judd, a UF botany professor and a co-chair
on the committee that created the new major, said the
high number of biology students going on to profes-
sional or graduate school after getting their under-
graduate degrees was an important factor in creating


the biology major.
This broad base now provides a good foundation
for students going on to professional school, he said.
The new design of the major, with added electives
and multi-college collaboration, allows students to
choose from an array of biological science classes,
Judd said.
The addition of advisers specifically for the biol-
ogy major caters more specifically to students' inter-
ests as well. The advisers make adjustments to the
program as needed, he said.
Fields said the curriculum of the new major is
flexible.
"It's not something that is set in stone and will
never change," she said. "It will change relative
to needs, the needs of our students for graduate
school."

I Protesters spilled symbolic


red liquid on Tigert's steps


Fiona Tennyson, 9, marches in a protest against the Iraq war and global warming on the way to Tigert Hall
on Monday.


PRU I .I5 I, from Page 1


Solmo, a member of Students for a
Democratic Society.
. Diane Solmo said Fiona begged
her to stay an extra day to partici-
pate in the protest.
"She said to me, literally, 'This
is more important than the fourth
grade,'" Solmo said.
When she's not trying to
change U.S. foreign policy, Fiona
said she likes to paint and read.
She said she's already on the sixth
Harry Potter book.
On Monday, it was all business.
Fiona hiked alongside her sister,
Chelsea, as they chanted in uni-
son, "One, two, three, four we
don't want this oil war. Five, six,
seven, eight stop the war, stop
the hate."
As protesters gathered on
the steps of Tigert Hall, leaving
behind scents of patchouli and
sweat, Clifton Hicks took the
megaphone.


Hicks, a 22-year-old Iraq war
veteran and SFCC freshman,
served in the U.S. Army from
October 2003 to July 2004. He was
granted an honorable discharge in
December 2005 because he was
named a Conscientious Objector.
"When I was in Iraq, me and
the other guys always swore that
when we got home, we'd fight
against this war," he said. "Most of
them have tried to forget about it,
but I want to keep that oath."
After protesters gave several
more speeches and symbolically
spilled red liquid on to Tigert's
steps, protesters were back on the
road. This time, they marched the
1.25 miles to Gainesville's City Hall
to speak out against Gainesville's
proposal of using wood and waste
products for energy.
As for UF's reaction, Steve
Orlando, UF spokesman, said
Machen-has been cooperative with
protesters this semester.
"Isn't free speech a great
thing?" Orlando said.

STEELE-ING, from page 23

I don't care if he's only a sophomore, Tebow
went into the house of an opposing senior
Heisman candidate and won.
Tebow didn't just amble into Andre'
Woodson's stadium and make a statement, he
made a run-on sentence with an exclamation
,point at the end.
The loss can't be blamed on Woodson, but he
needed the win.
If Kentucky had won the game, he would be
the current favorite for the Heisman. Now, he
will likely be an afterthought.
So Woodson down, you say Ryan is still bet-
ter? His team is undefeated, after all.
Let's put him in the Southeastern Conference
with LSU's Glen Dorsey breathing down his
neck. Kiss that perfect record goodbye.
Tebow has as much big-game experience as
anyone after playing in LSU's Death Valley and
a national championship game.
Ryan's great and will be a top NFL Draft pick,
but for every positive he has, Tebow has it and
more.


Tebow is a leader in every way the Gators need
him to be. He has a rocket arm and he can run.
"He'd probably be my first draft pick," UF
coach Urban Meyer said of his quarterback after
Saturday's win at Kentucky. "If they said, 'coach,
you get one pick,' I'd say, 'I've got mine.'"
Darren McFadden?
Sorry, but you can't be on one of the worst
teams in your conference and expect to be con-
sidered among the nation's elite.
McFadden has tons of talent, but come talk to
me when his team is bowl eligible and can actu-
ally beat a respectable SEC opponent.
Colt Brennan's Hawaii. squad is still unde-
feated, but his four interceptions against San Jose
State even with a bad right ankle look bad.
Louisville's Brian Brohm needs to stop losing,
period.
The Cardinals just lost to Connecticut,. and
they have plummetted in the rankings since the
season started.
Don't even start with Michigan's Mike Hart.
Hart's great, but Tebow's nearly as big as most of
Appalachian State's defensive line.
You can't be the leader of your team and lose
to a I-AA squad and expect to be considered
among the nation's elite.

played a part in the tourna-
ment, as four of eight that
made the trip were freshmen.
Jackson indicated this was
the source of his encourage-
ment.
"We have a lot of talent,"
he said.
"We just don't have a lot of
experience. We can definitely
do better, but we're on the
right track."
UF brought plenty of
youth to the doubles court
with more encouraging re-
sults.
Two pairings, made up of
three freshmen and a senior,
won three matches and ad-
vanced to the quarterfinal
round before bowing out.
Senior Nestor Briceno
teamed up with freshman


Alex Lacroix on one team,
and freshmen Johnny Hamui
and Jeff Dadamo comprised
the other.
"To have two teams in the
quarters without your best
guy, it's definitely encourag-
ing," Jackson said.
"We're going to be bet-
ter in doubles
this year than
we were last
year."
Tennis J ac k s o n
said individual
tournaments like this will
help the Gators prepare for
their upcoming season and
Southeastern Conference
play.
"In the SEC where ba-
sically every team's in the
top 25 you need to learn
in a hurry," Jackson said.
"Otherwise we're going to be
losing."

Gators scrimmage lacks standout defensive play


* IT WAS THE TEAM'S FIRST PUBLIC
APPEARANCE.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

One day after its public debut, the UF men's
basketball team has yet to make an impression.
Associate Head Coach Larry Shyatt is unset-
tfled following Sunday's scrimmage at the Alltel
Wireless Fan Appreciation Day in the O'Connell
Center.
"We just finished watching the tape, and
there's a lot of mixed emotions, a little disap-
pointed really," Shyatt said Monday of the three-
period, fifteen-minute scrimmage. "We had a
couple of players stand out offensively. I think
the disappointment was that we really didn't
have a lineup or a group of players that stood out
defensively."
The afternoon event replaced UF's annual
Midnight Madness. The women's team played
one five-minute scrimmage following an au-
tograph session. The men practiced a set of
drills before competing in their own intrasquad
matchup.
The sides were shuffled throughout, and the
final score ended in a 30-30 tie. Highlights of the
scrimmage include two outside shots by center
Marreese Speights and a put-back dunk by for-
ward Chandler Parsons, who led all scorers with
11 points.
Shyatt said he was impressed with Parsons'
performance, especially the 6-foot-9 freshman's
physical style of play.
"The good thing was that he took the ball
to the hole and did follow up some offensive
rebounds," Shyatt said. "We've been physically
weak in terms of getting to the glass, so that was
a good thing."


Freshman Nick Calathes made a mark of
his own by adding 7 points, which included a
buzzer-beating 3-pointer that gave his team the
advantage after two quarters. Other standouts
included Jai Lucas, who scored 7 points, and
Speights, who contributed 9.
One of the more intriguing lineups featured a
three-guard setup of Lucas, Calathes and junior
Walter Hodge.
Sophomore Dan Werner, who scored 7 points,
said the trio proved difficult to handle.
"It was tough," Werner said. "You had to
help pressure the ball a little bit. They had two
McDonald's All Americans and a guy who won
two national championships, so it was difficult,
but I thought we handled it really well."
"We just finished watching the tape,
and there's a lot of mixed emotions,
a little disappointed really."
Larry Shyatt
UF men's basketball associate head coach

Sophomore Jonathan Mitchell said he believes
the team has already begun to develop an iden-
tity
"We're going to run and gun," Mitchell said.
"We don't have the size down low, so we're just
going to go out there and run. ... It's a lot of fun,
and it's obviously easy for the coaches because
they don't have to call any plays."
After his first taste of action, Mitchell said he
can't wait for the season opener against Flagler
College on Nov. 1.
"I think it was good for us," he said. "It was
the first time we got to put on a uniform and be
out there in front of a crowd, especially with us
being a young team.
"I just came out there and tried to get every-
body involved and tried to teach the young guys.
... It was just good to finally be out there."

Jackson was encouraged by his team's
play during the weekend at the ITA

The Gators put four players in the
tournament's singles round of 32 and one
in the round of 16, but despite some close
matches, they never achieved the break-

"Across the board, most of the guys
had something that was encouraging,"
Jackson said.
"And even when we were losing, we

UF FOOTBALL

Meyer lauds
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

In UF coach Urban Meyer's opinion,
the most important play of Saturday's win
against Kentucky came with quarterback
Tim Tebow on the sideline.
Before Tebow connected with Percy
Harvin for 40 yards and rumbled into the
end zone from 2 yards out on the Gators'
final drive, the quarterback's former high
school rival, Brandon James, delivered the
real backbreaker.
With the Gators up 38-31 with 3:35 left
and Kentucky kicking off, James returned
the ball 26 yards to the UF 43-yard line.
That's not normally all that impressive.
But on this occasion the return team de-
served credit, given that James was the only
member of the unit who had not inched into
Kentucky territory to prepare for a possible
onside kick.
"I still can't get over that happening,"
Meyer said. "I can't believe that happened.
That changed the whole dynamic of the
football game."
With room to spare, UF offensive coordi-
nator Dan Mullen then called more aggres-
sive plays, leading to a touchdown on the
fifth snap of the series that put the game out
of reach.
James also set up a score at the end of the
first half with a 61-yard kickoff return to the
Kentucky 38-yard line.
"If I had to say what won that game, the
kickoff return team won that football game,"
Meyer said.

the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Pubished by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida We Inform. You Decide. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 UF ACADEMICS Biology major surges in popularity at UF By HILARY LEHMAN Alligator Writer hlehman@alligator.org Anabelle Outar liked biology but said she thought some classes in UF's interdisciplinary biology program would do little to prepare her for medical school. But with the creation of a new biology major this summer, Outar, a UF junior, decided to switch her major from biochemistry and molecular biology to biology. Now, UF's biology major is already one of the most popular majors at UF, a UF news release stated. The interdisciplinary major is being completely replaced by the biology major because of course overlap, said Margaret Fields, assistant dean and director of biological sciences in UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Outar, now in her first semester on the preprofessional track of the biology major, called the new biology program the "best preparation" for her future goals. Spring will be the third semester for students to register for classes as biology majors. About 4,000 students are taking the core courses required for biology majors, Fields said. Almost 1,100 students are in the major, she added. Before the creation of the major, UP was the only university out of Florida's 11 public universities that did not offer a general biology degree. Biology has many of the courses required for professional schools such as medical school, veterinary school and pharmacy school, making the major attractive to students seeking to enter those programs Fields after graduation. After the creation of an interdisciplinary biology major during the 2000-2001 school year, rapid growth of the program prompted the decision to create an official biology major, Fields said. Fields said the biology major was not necessary in the past because pre-professional students could take the biology classes they needed through the zoology and botany majors. The main difference between the interdisciplinary major and the new biology major is transparency, Fields said. She' said the new major, which is being offered through both CLAS and the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, is easier to find and add because students do not have to complete an application process to get into the program. SEE BIOLOGY, PAGE 14 9-year-old joins local protesters By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@aIIigator.org Fiona Tennyson can't drive, get a tattoo or see a PG-13 movie by herself. But what's most frustrating to the 9-yearold activist is that she can't vote, she said. "The president is kind of making lies," Fiona said as her tiny peace-sign earrings swung in the breeze Monday. "Sometimes it gets me annoyed." Fiona joined about 75 other protesters on a march from the Reitz Union to Tigert Hall and finally to City Hall on Monday afternoon to rally against the Iraq war and global warming. "The president is kind of making lies. Sometimes it gets me annoyed." Fiona Tennyson 9-year-old activist Members of UF's Students for a Democratic Society, a student protest group, led the demonstration, which had several goals. Students wanted to remind UF President Bernie Machen that transparent and responsible investing should be a top priority, said Tina Steiger, a member of the group. Steiger said the group also wanted to raise awareness about the Iraq war and global warming because many students don't care. Four-foot-tall Fiona agreed. "There's melting in the Arctic," she said. "The polar bears are gonna get extinct, and they can't really swim for a long time."

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 1 Circus to visit Gainesville N THE COLE BROS. CIRCUS IS HITTING TOWN WEDNESDAY. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer With pastel poodles and a "Globe of Death" in tow, Cole Bros. Circus will move its Big Top into Gainesville on Wednesday. Shows will take place at The Oaks Mall on Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Renee Storey, vice president of administration for the circus, said Cole Bros. Circus is known for having the longest continuous history of any circus in the U.S. and was established in 1886. Storey said Cole Bros. Circus staff and performers, who have come from all over the world, have created a tight-knit family. She said their office manager is from the Ukraine and used to perform in a flying trapeze group. The office manager is also the flying cannonball at the circus performance, Storey said. Some of the ticket takers also juggle on horseback, she said. Most of the employees have two to three jobs, she said. "You're almost sure to find that they come from someplace interesting, and they do something really fascinating and sometimes dangerous," Storey said. The most popular circus act of the year has been the "ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of Death," Storey said. "in our performance, the 'Globe of Death' opens the show," she said. "The kids just love it because it's got motorcycle riders." Two motorcyclists ride around in a giant globe and do daredevil tricks. People are encouraged to come out Wednesday while the circus is propping up the tent, she said. Local "I hope they have the opporNews tunity to speak with some of our performers," Storey said. Their season, which began in March, had scheduled stops in Louisiana, New York City and Washington, D.C. The most recent performances have been in Tallahassee. Storey said she thinks that the circus is a great way for college students to unwind and take a break from their studies. "It's perfectly OK to be a kid," she said. "There are not too many places like that left." When purchased in advance, general admission tickets are $12. Adult prices, for ages 13 and up, go up to $17 on site. Free children's tickets can also be found on the circus' Web site. Free Online MCAT Science Review! -A$499VALUE! Enroll in a Kaplan MCAT Course in October and get Online MCAT Science Review free!

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 ON CAMPUS Time drags for students waiting for CLAS advisers By MARIA FERNANDA CASTRO Alligator Contributing Writer Some people drool, some read and others have their ears plugged with headphones. Jessica Reddish just wishes her seat had a headrest to make her experience more bearable. Reddish, an anthropology junior, had been waiting for 25 minutes to see her academic adviser last week. She was not the only one. Twenty-six other students were also waiting to see an adviser with her at the Academic Advising Center of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Students are waiting between 45 to 90 minutes to see an adviser during one of the busiest times of the semester, Albert Matheny, director of the Academic Advising Center, wrote in an e-mail. Many students are seeking advice before advanced registration for the spring semester begins on Monday, often to get holds on their records removed. The college has a student-to-adviser ratio of 1,200-to-1, while in other colleges the ratio is 250-to-1, Matheny wrote. "We do remarkably well in the AAC [Academic Advising Center] when you consider this discrepancy," he wrote. In the last few years, the number of students in the college has grown from 10,000 to 12,300, but the number of advisers stayed the same due to budget constraints in the college, he wrote. This year, the center is getting help from graduate assistants and retired faculty members "who basically work out of the goodness of their hearts," he wrote. The extra help is aimed at giving the center more advisers and staff members available to students, Matheny wrote, and if all goes as planned, an additional hired adviser will start working Jan. 1. "I hope we can use this to address the advising bottlenecks," he wrote. "That would be very nice, and students would see a big impact on wait time." I hope we can use this to address the advising bottlenecks. That would be very nice, and students would see a big impact on wait time." Albert Matheny Academic Advising Center director In order to avoid waiting, students should plan ahead by making sure they are seeing the right adviser and going to the center early in the morning, he wrote. Coming between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. is not recommended because most students plan to go during those times, he wrote. The center is open Monday through Friday from a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but many students are in class during those times. "I don't mind waiting, but I hate to miss class," said Stephen Phillips, an anthropology junior. He had to miss class after he was waiting for more than one hour for advising last week. The college's debt may also be a factor slowing down the advising process, Matheny wrote. The recent proposal by the Florida Legislature and the Board of Governors for a tuition increase will directly benefit students because the money will go toward hiring more advisers, he wrote. "CLAS understands that we are shorthanded, and I believe that help will soon be on the way," he wrote. In the meantime, students like Reddish will have to linger in the waiting area at the center. Computer outlets could help encourage students to be patient, she said, but now all she does is "stare obliviously at other people" while she waits.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL First new fire station in 28 years could be coming By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@aIligator.org Gainesville Fire Rescue could soon be getting its first new fire station since 1979. The City Commission passed three petitions Monday night that will allow for the construction of Fire Station No. 8 on 4127 NW 34th St. The land is part of a parcel that belongs to A Child's Place child care center, owned by Desjam Enterprises Inc. The petitions authorized splitting the lot and changing land use and zoning classifications for the fire station. Commissioner Ed Braddy and Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan brought up concerns about noise at the meeting. The proposed location for the station borders a residential area. "You may have retirees, you may have stay-at-home parents, you may have people who are not gone during the course of the day," Hanrahan said. "You need to work hard at that. We want to be good neighbors." Gainesville Fire Chief Bill Northcutt, who also spoke at the meeting, said the station will try to keep noise down, especially at night. "We want to be good neighbors." Pegeen Hanrahan Gainesville mayor "I think the intent will be not to use those sirens until absolutely necessary," he said. Chris Dawson, a planner with Causseaux, Hewett, & Walpole Inc., said at the meeting that planners will do what they can to prevent disruption to the neighbors. The organization would be building the station. This includes constructing the building back from the edge of the property and surrounding the property with vegetation, he said. In planning the vegetation, the planners will try to retain as many of the property's current trees as possible, he said. Faculty Senate may overhaul Student Honor Court 0 A COMMITTEE WANTS MORE FACULTY INVOLVEMENT. By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculciasure@ailigator.org Students charged with cheating might lose the chance to have their cases heard in front of the Student Honor Court. A report from a committee of UF's Faculty Senate at its Thursday meeting would eliminate the handling of academic dishonesty cases by the court, citing the lack of faculty involvement as "problematic" and "of significant concern." Neil Patel, Student Honor Court chancellor, said he met with Student Body President Ryan Moseley on Monday and said they were still working on a response to the possible change. Patel said removing the court would take away an important avenue of student involvement in academic conduct cases. Kim Tanzer, a UF architecture professor who co-chairs the committee, said the Senate is-not looking to dismantle the court. Mainly, the committee's research showed that faculty members want additional input in cases involving academic conduct, Tanzer said. Because of this, some professors were taking matters into their own hands when it came to discipline, the report states. Generally, students charged with academic dishonesty can choose to have their cases heard by the Student Conduct Committee, which is composed of students and faculty, or by the Student Honor Court. Other venues for hearing cases include an administrative hearing, the Greek Judicial Board, or the Health Science Center's and the Levin College of Law's student conduct committees. In the Student Honor Court, law students act as the defense and prosecution, each presenting a case to a panel of students. The panel determines whether the accused student is responsible for the charge and recommends an appropriate punishment to the Dean of Student's Office, which makes a final decision. Tanzer said faculty could only participate in the process as witnesses. She said the purpose of her committee was not to specifically target the Student Honor Court but to streamline the different methods of handling academic conduct cases. The committee recommended limiting the investigation of academic conduct cases to faculty hearings, the Student Conduct Committee and the Health Science Center and law school committees. Tanzer said the Faculty Senate will vote to endorse or reject the committee's findings at its Nov. 15 meeting. If the Senate endorses the recommendations, Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin could make the changes.

6, ALLIGATOR S TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 Editorial Hate to Wait More CLAS advisers needed It's UF's eternal problem. No, not too few season football tickets. Not Friday's crossword puzzle being too hard for you to finish during your chemistry lecture. Not when your professor schedules an exam for the morning after Halloween. We're talking about the lack of advisers for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. If you've ever been lucky enough to be awarded a hold or if you accidentally forgot to take some critical tracking courses, you might know what it's like to have to sit in the hell that is the Academic Advising Center lobby. We shudder just to think about it. Academic advising, and presumably the center, are supposed to be lucky recipients of some of the money from the Tuition Differential Program, which will begin bringing in funds next fall. UF President Bernie Machen has said he would use the some of the money to hire new advisers. Hopefully CLAS' student-to-adviser ratio will improve from 1,200 to one. But in order for CLAS' ratio to be comparable to UF's other colleges' ratios of 250 students to one adviser, CLAS would need a total of 49 advisers. Right now, it only has 11. We know that is completely unrealistic, but even doubling its number of current advisers would mean only one adviser for every 560 students. For now, students are advised (ha!) to avoid coming to the Academic Advising Center right before registration begins, but for students with holds or who have no clue what to take next term, that may not be an option. We suggest you exhaust all your other options -your department, phone calls or e-mails, your Preview staffer -before you trudge down to the center. If you absolutely must go, make sure you bring along an iPod, your laptop, some homework, a pillow or a crossword puzzle -just not Friday's. Zone Coverage Planning on getting wasted in Jacksonville this weekend for the Florida-Georgia football game? If you answered yes, this is for you. If you party too heartily at The Jacksonville Landing, you'll be able to hang out in one of three Sideline Student Safety Zones. The best part? No legal ramifications! We're glad our university isn't in denial about students drinking, regardless of their age. And it's nice to know that if your friend -or you -has a few too many of those drinks that are served in a fishbowl, you'll have a place to charge your cell phone, catch a cab or just drink something without alcohol in it. Of course, students shouldn't depend on the zones or drink to the point of blacking out because they know the zones are there. Last year, UF, the University of Georgia and the city of Jacksonville partnered to provide two zones for the intoxicated, with the aim of reducing accidents and violence. We hope students who drink themselves into oblivion take advantage of the safety zones, and we hope everyone stays safe this weekend.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion / Is Column A minor proposal for registration season t's already time to register for classes, and we're all too busy with this semester to care about the next. Isn't that the way it always happens? Registration has a tendency to pop up right in the middle of exams, so we don't spend enough time choosing classes. Each and every semester, we naively feel like we'll be able to sign up for exactly the courses we need when we want to attend them. Too bad it doesn't work like that. If war is hell, registration must be hell's musty basement. It's time to use those extra credits for something worthwhile. General education classes would be great fillers for your credit quota, but they're no more than fillers. Gen-ed courses are the most worthless classes offered. Be honest with me: How many of you actually remember anything from Age of Dinosaurs? How much are you really going to learn from the newly required "diversity" credits? If the classes weren't so blasted easy, people might actually show up. I'm petitioning the university to add a new minor that students could choose in lieu of gen-ed requirements. The minor would give students just as liberal an education and actually equip them for the real world. Ladies and gentlemen, you could be among the first in the country to study Argumentative Theory. This course of study will subject the student to a number of diverse opinions on an equally diverse amount of subjects. These 16 credits will validate a candidate's ability to effectively justify their many different opinions. In your first semester, you'd be required to take four credits of Theory vs. Theory. This class would highlight the differences between scientific theories, which a large number of scientists agree upon, and everyday theories, which are backed by no factual data. Evolution and gravity would not be debated. Next, you'd have a choice between Actual Statistics and Media Statistics, either course for four credits. Both classes would tackle the same issues, but only one of them would correctly analyze the facts. The other would prepare you for a career at Fox News. Twenty-first Century Cox Economics, another four-credit Kyle C course, will benefit nearly everyletters@alligator.org body on campus because there's nothing more disturbing than hearing a chemistry major talk about the trade deficit. Topics would include "Minimum-wage and its actual effect on society" and "Prohibition of sex and illegal drugs, and not being able to gain tax revenues from either." The most controversial class, two-credit Race and Culture, would be unlike any ever offered. For each week of study, students would be asked to prepare a presentation on members of a different culture. Any student receiving lower than a B on any project will be required to spend the rest of the semester living in the country where that culture is most prevalent. The student would be dropped off without food, money or language lessons and be expected to adjust to the culture accordingly. Students may not want to skip week seven, when North Korea will be covered in detail. Note that Race and Culture would have a two-credit corequisite titled Immigration: Your Family Did at One Point, Too. In successfully completing the minor, students will be able to make legitimate decisions about how the world works. I'd like to think all of us would sign up for the minor, but I know better. It's too hard to research an issue prior to forming an opinion. Good luck with your gen-ed courses! Kyle Cox is a junior majoring in anthropology and marketing. His column appears on Tuesdays.

By EVA MAE SMITH Alligator Contributing Writer There were squeals of joy from Team White Bengals and disappointed looks from Team Krackerjacks on Monday. Five teams, each with four SFCC students, crowded into a conference room at Charles Perry Construction, where the first team was eliminated in an SFCC contest for internships throughout the state called The Interns. At the elimination ceremony, Breck Weingart, president of Charles -Perry Construction, announced the teams that would be moving on for three more tasks. "This is a promotion," he said. "We're not firing anyone, we're promoting four teams." Weingert announced Team Bombsquad, Big Red, Intellects and White Bengals would move on. Team Krackerjacks was eliminated from the competition. The teams were each assigned a construction project from Rebuild Gainesville that took place Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., said Averial McKenzie, an Santa Fe SFCC student and projCommunity ect coordinator for The College Interns. Projects included building front porch stairs and creating a swing set, McKenzie said. At the elimination ceremony, Alan Rezaei, co-coordinator of the project, announced the next task. The second task focuses on journalism skills and is hosted by The Gainesville Sun. Rezaei said it is called "Reporting the News, Building a Newspaper." The objective of the assignment is to create a one-page spread in the SFCC Saint Sentinel that focuses on the skills necessary for students entering the journalism workforce, he said.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 9 LOCAL City Commission discusses development project By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer A proposed development near Gainesville Regional Airport continued to cause controversy Monday night at a City Commission meeting: East Gainesville Development Partners, headed by its petitioner Ronald Carpenter, has asked the city to rezone land near the airport for residential and commercial use in its development. Though some were in favor of the development, others protested against the developers, East Gainesville Development Partners, before the commission heard the group's proposal. NE 53rd Avenue The land, located at 2100 NE 39th Ave., surrounds the Ironwood Golf Course and includes 90 acres of Gainesville wetlands and part of the Murphree Wellfield. "This would be a boom to .East Gainesville. With the Wal-Mart coming in, this would only make things better." Milford Griner Alachua County Ministerial Alliance president Developers want to change from an area that is reserved for industrial, commercial and singlePotential Location for New Pevelopment ..................... h ONEW53d Aeu 232 m 24 1 ronwood' Golf Gainesville Regional Airport 2 Proposed Development 2100 NE 39th Ave. Molly Telfer/ Alligator Staff family use to a multipurpose planned use district. This will allow developers to build up to 1,500 units, where at least one resident must have at least 55,500 assisted living units, 100,000 square feet of office space and 100,000 square feet of commercial and retail space, according to the meeting agenda. The Rev. Milford Griner, president of the Alachua County Ministerial Alliance, said that as a resident of East Gainesville, he believes the area is being overlooked for developments. "This would be a boom to East Gainesville," Griner said. "With the Wal-Mart coming in, this would only make things better." Danielle Emenhiser, director of community political affairs with Student Government, said students should be aware of all sides of the development debate. It's her job to ensure UF's student body stays -informed about issues affecting the city. "I want students to see what goes on outside the campus borders," Emenhiser said. "There's so much going on in this community that they need to be aware of." The city planning board has advised the City Commission to deny the developers' first petition to change the industrial land located close to the airport to the Planned Use District category, but wants the commission to approve the other petitions to change the single-family and recreation land to planned use. Dean Minms, a Gainesville city employee, informed the commission about the environmental issues and potential noise problems if the commission approved all the zone changes. He said 359 acres of the property are in areas where residents would be affected by the noise levels. Nicole Satker/ Alligator Staf Mark Garland, an environmental reviewer, shows a map outlining the Gainesville Regional Airport noise zone.

10, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 STUDENT SAFETY Safety zones return for game By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org UF will host three Sideline Student Safety Zones near The Jacksonville Landing on Friday and Saturday in Jacksonville, a news release from Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students, stated. That's one more zone than there was last year, the first year the zones were established. They were created by UF, the University of Georgia and the city of Jacksonville. UF students who need first aid, telephones, water, coffee, snacks or computer access at the Florida-Georgia game will have three safe havens where legal trouble is no threat, the release stated. Taxi service and trolleys will also be available. The goal of the zones is to minimize violence and accidents over the weekend. Two UF students died during Florida-Georgia game weekends in 2004 and 2005. Representatives from UF and the University of Georgia and volunteers from Jacksonville will staff the zones. Jacksonville and UF's University Police Department officers will also be on duty Saturday night, but students visiting the zones don't need to worry about legal repercussions for alcohol issues, the release stated. "We're not here for that," Zdziarski said in the release. "We're there strictly to help people." The three zone locations will be behind the Starbucks inside The Landing, at the intersection of Laura Street and Independent Drive and behind the Welcome Center across from Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. "We're there strictly to help people." Gene Zdziarski UF's dean of students The zones will be open from 4 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday and from noon Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday. The turnout at the zones in 2006 was successful, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. UF still made some minor changes. The locations will have more phone chargers and outlets available, Orlando said, in addition to more computer access. It's important that students understand the guarantee that they won't face punishment if they show up intoxicated, he said. That's why the coffee is there, he added. Growl adds to lineup By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org Following its theme of "Nation of Champions," Gator Growl has added another championship-winning guest to its lineup of entertainers and UF athletes. Billy Donovan, UF men's basketball coach, will appear with the team at Gator Growl. The 84th annual Gator Growl, billed as the world's largest student-run pep rally, will kick off Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Aron Weingard, Gator Growl producer, said this is the first time he's heard of the basketball team and its coach appearing at the pep rally. "I know the students will be pumped up to see Billy and Urban in the same night, live," Weingard said. Weingard said his staff started looking into Donovan's appearance in the summer and made the final arrangement about two weeks ago. The appearance only made sense, given the pep rally's theme, he said. "It's a great opportunity for the students of UF to meet the new faces of Gators basketOn ball," he said. "We're Campus celebrating championships, and it wouldn't be complete without them." In a Gator Growl news release, Donovan said the team was excited about its scheduled appearance. "We're thrilled and honored to take part in such a prestigious and time-honored tradition as Gator Growl," Donovan said. "It's one of the truly special events for this community and for the entire Gator Nation." Holiday Gift Guides 2007 What's on your wish list?

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 11 Project Vote Smart tour makes stop in Gainesville 0 A MOBILE CLASSROOM CAME TO A LIBRARY. By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON Alligator Contributing Writer A patriotically painted bus transformed into a teaching vessel for voters educated passersby Monday about a political education project. Project Vote Smart parked its mobile classroom outside the Tower Road Branch Library during its first nationwide tour. Milagros Ruiz, 40, learned about the project for the first time after bumping into a project representative. "This is great, because its goal is to educate voters, and there is nothing worse than a blind voter," said Ruiz, a Gainesville teacher. Jan Gaines stopped at the Project Vote Smart bus while on her way into the library. "The 2008 presidential election is very important and informed voters are the key," Gaines said. "This project will help get voters information easily." Jon Arnold, national bus tour coordinator for the project, wearing the project's purple polo shirt, led six people onto the red, white and blue bus and began a presentation inside the mobile classroom, which seats 22 people. He demonstrated how to use the By JENNIFER BINGAMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Andrea Booher owns a phone book, but she never uses it. "It's a waste of paper," Booher said. The 20-year-old aerospace engineering student said she usually uses the Internet when she needs to look something up. While some students say they do not use their phone books, a new edition of The Talking Phone Book hits the streets of Gainesville this month with a 15-page guide to UF as well as local maps, coupons and restaurant guides with menus. Sharon Blansett, assistant director of housing at UF, said the university doesn't distribute a lot of phone books for on-campus housing because students don't use them. She said UF used to receive thousands of phone books to distribute on campus. There would be enough for each room, suite and apartment, plus extras. "We would have all these stacks of phone books in the lobby areas," Blansett said. Project Vote Smart Web -site and introduced a 10-minute video. A patriotic melody began playing in the background of the video, which detailed the history and current functions of the project. Only about 10 to 20 students would use the phone books distributed, she said. Students began to complain about the books sitting in the lobbies collecting dust. "They would say 'What a waste -we have piles and piles of phone books,"' Blansett said. Eventually, housing officials recycled the phone books at the end of the spring semesters and told the phone companies to significantly Around cut their disGainesvilIe tribution. Blansett said she thinks most students use the Internet to replace their need for a phone book. Greg Garrick, vice president of marketing for The Talking Phone Book, said the name for the phone book being distributed this month comes from a feature the company used to offer. People could call a number listed in their phone book that would direct them to recordings of their daily horoscopes, sports updates and scores, he said. Now, the company only provides information through its phonebook distribution and its Web site. Gainesville is the 18th stop on the tour, which began in Melbourne three weeks ago. The tour, which was conceptualized in June, is meant to teach voters about the project and provide a means to educate Americans about political candidates and lawmakers, Arnold said. "Florida has been such an important state in the last few elections," Arnold said. "That is why we Jan Gaines receives information from Jon Arnold, Project Vote Smart national bus tour coordinator, on Monday at the Tower Road Branch Library. ( "'4 1f' q'4% ( -h I 2-3 -. -I started here." The project was created after two politicians spent an evening discussing the negative direction of politics and how candidates spent most of their time attacking each other rather than informing voters, Arnold said. Sixteen years and 6,000 people later, U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater and Project Vote Smart President Richard Kimball's creation has built the country's first voter's self-defense system, Arnold said. The voter's self-defense system researches, investigates and confirms relevant facts about 40,000 or so U.S. political candidates and lawmakers year-round. The project provides information like voting records, issue positions, speeches and public statements, said Jeremy Clemens, legislative research director for the project. The information compiled by the project is uploaded into a public online database, which has received as many as 16 million hits per day, Clemens said. "Our Web site is the just the objective, un-biased facts, a 'meat and potatoes' kind of place, where a voter can go to find information about candidates and lawmakers," Clemens said. The project does not accept help from special interest groups, corporations or the government, Arnold said. I '",lr '' 0 *0 CD Many students do not use phone book

12, ADVERTISEMENT, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 I J_ I -s 11 N rs Institute coordinates UF's sustainable energy efforts Energy may be the defining issue of this century. Our quality of life, economy, standard of living and security depend on clean, affordable and reliable energy. The limited supply of fossil energy, its accelerated consumption, and a dependence on unstable countries for fossil fuel supply are major U.S. economic and security issues. Moreover, due to Florida's unique coastal geography and southern latitude, it is the state with both the most to gain by harnessing its abundant renewable energy resources, and the most to lose if it doesn't. We are rich in renewable energy resources, particularly biomass and solar, yet we're currently dependent on fossil fuels. This dependency contributes to global warming and the associated increased risk of violent weather and rising ocean levels that threaten the residents living near our 1,350 miles of coastline. More than 150 University of Florida-faculty are hard at work each day developing new technologies from fuel cells, batteries and solar cells, to biofuels, nuclear power and green building construction, to name just a few -in order to provide a sustainable energy future for Florida and the world. This year, the Florida Institute for Sustainable Energy (FISE) www. energy.ufl.edu was created to coordinate and promote the vast energy research across campus. In addition, we were able to secure a $4.5 million Florida Center of Excellence award to create the FISE Energy Technology Incubator. This incubator, currently under construction in Rhines and Rogers Halls, is a user facility for faculty, staff and students, to accelerate commercialization of UF's energy research so that it can have the greatest impact on society. It is my hope that someday soon we will be driving hybrid cars based on UF's fuel cell and battery technology, and operating on biofuel created from UF technology. Eric D. Wachsman Director, Florida Institute for Sustainable Energy UF celebrates National Campus Sustainability Day For the third year in a row, the University of Florida's Office of Sustainability will celebrate National Campus Sustainability Day. The event starts at 10 a.m. on Oct. 24 and features a number of activities designed to raise awareness of campus sustainability efforts. The day will begin on the Reitz Student Union North Lawn, with President Machen addressing the annual Sustainability Report Card. Following the address, the Student Ray Carson, UF News Bureau The rooftop of the Perry Construction Yard Building is green in more ways than one. Government Environmental Affairs Cabinet will hold a forum on the renewable energy fee that was passed in a recent student government election, said Melissa Karr, Office of Sustainability intern. The 50-cent per credit hour fee passed with 78 percent approval last spring. Throughout the day, a variety of student groups and community organizations will provide food, games and information. Visitors can use the Eco-Footprint calculator provided by "Gatort for a Sustainable Campus" to learn about their individual impact on the environment, and learn ways to lessen it. Another group, the American Solar Energy Society, will provide a solarpowered tricycle, the "Photon." "The basic goal of the day is to raise awareness, show support to organizations making a difference and enjoy being sustainable," Karr said. Groups such as these are educating the Gator Nation and paving the way for a university of the future, one with a Listings in this section are a sampling of events at the University of Florida compiled from entries listed in thefull calendar that appears on the Web at calendarufl.edu.

"President Machen's goal for the university is complete carbon neutrality by the year 2020," Prizzia said. While it may appear to be a lofty goal, UF is making great strides through many different methods. All over campus, cleaning crews have switched to "green" cleaning supplies and all paper towels and toilet paper are made of 100 percent recyclable materials, Prizzia said. Also, campus bUildings are using paint and carpet which is low in VOCs, a volatile type of chemical which is harmful to the environment. While efforts are being made to increase sustainability in existing buildings, new construction takes that effort one step further. "All new construction on campus will be designed to receive a LEED (Leadership Oct.24 Walt Disney World College Program Presentation, Stuzin Hall 200, 6 p.m. Free and open to the public.

If successful, these efforts would result in the high certification -based on environmsentally friendly and sustainable criteria as designated by the U.S. Green Building Council. One UF building already is not only green in the figurative sense, bt aso literally. The Charles R. Perry Construction Yard Building has a roof which contains soil and growing plants. The green roof helps reduce storm runoff, insulates the building against heat and sousd, and improves the aesthetic value of the building. Waste reduction is another effort to meet the 2020 campus goal. With the help of concerned students, staff and faculty, the solid waste output has been greatly reduced. "We've partnered with gatorlist.net to offer people a free way to give away things they might normally throw away," Prizzia said. Besides the more direct, people-to-people recycling, the Office of SUsiainability and its volunteers and interns also work on programs such as collecting recyclables on game days, when they are often thrown in with other refuse, Prizzia said. These programs show the commitment of the Gator Nation to sustainability, and the dedication of the volunteers. "The student commitment is really amazing," Prizzia said. "We really couldn't do it without them." By Alex Stern Phillips Center,6 p.m. $13 in advance or $15 day of show.

14, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 L.vdd)ug% unie.vhed mn %YC Humi rqjrrei ton to "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" UF's new biology major has six tracks BIOLOGY, from Page 1 The new biology major has six tracks. The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences offers three: natural science, biotechnology and applied biology. CLAS offers biology and biology secondary education. The-tisttrack is pre-professional, which is offered through both colleges. The previous interdisciplinary major only offered three tracks. Walter Judd, a UF botany professor and a co-chair on the committee that created the new major, said the high number of biology students going on to professional or graduate school after getting their undergraduate degrees was an important factor in creating the biology major. This broad base now provides a good foundation for students going on to professional school, he said. The new design of the major, with added electives and multi-college collaboration, allows students to choose from an array of biological science classes, Judd said. The addition of advisers specifically for the biology major caters more specifically to students' interests as well. The advisers make adjustments to the program as needed, he said. Fields said the curriculum of the new major is flexible. "It's not something that is set in stone and will never change," she said. "It will change relative to needs, the needs of our students for graduate school." Protesters spilled symbolic red liquid on Tigert's steps Fiona Tennyson, 9, marches in a protest against the Iraq war and global warming on the way to Tigert Hall on Monday. PROTEST, from Page 1 Solmo, a member of Students for a Democratic Society. .Diane Solmo said Fiona begged her to stay an extra day to participate in the protest. "She said to me, literally, 'This is more important than the fourth grade,'" Solmo said. When she's not trying to change U.S. foreign policy, Fiona said she likes to paint and read. She said she's already on the sixth Harry Potter book. On Monday, it was all business. Fiona hiked alongside her sister, Chelsea, as they chanted in unison, "One, two, three, four -we don't want this oil war. Five, six, seven, eight -stop the war, stop the hate." As protesters gathered on the steps of Tigert Hall, leaving behlid scents of patchoui and sweat, Clifton Hicks took the megaphone. Hicks, a 22-year-old Iraq war veteran and SFCC freshman, served in the U.S. Army from October 2003 to July 2004. He was granted an honorable discharge in December 2005 because he was named a Conscientious Objector. "When I was in Iraq, me and the other guys always swore that when we got home, we'd fight against this war," he said. "Most of them have tried to forget about it, but I want to keep that oath." After protesters gave several more speeches and symbolically spilled red liquid on to Tigert's steps, protesters were back on the road. This time, they marched the 1.25 miles to Gainesville's City Hall to speak out against Gainesville's proposal of using wood and waste products for energy. As for UF's reaction, Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said Machen-has been cooperative with protesters this semester. "Isn't free speech a great thing?" Orlando said.

22, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 STEELE-ING, from page 23 I don't care if he's only a sophomore, Tebow went into the house of an opposing senior Heisman candidate and won. Tebow didn't just amble into Andre' Woodson's stadium and make a statement, he made a run-on sentence with an exclamation ,Point at the end. The loss can't be blamed on Woodson, but he needed the win. If Kentucky had won the game, he would be the current favorite for the Heisman. Now, he will likely be an afterthought. So Woodson down, you say Ryan is still better? His team is undefeated, after all. Let's put him in the Southeastern Conference with LSU's Glen Dorsey breathing down his neck. Kiss that perfect record goodbye. Tebow has as much big-game experience as anyone after playing in LSU's Death Valley and a national championship game. Ryan's great and will be a top NFL Draft pick, but for every positive he has, Tebow has it and more. Tebow is a leader in every way the Gators need him to be. He has a rocket arm and he can run. "He'd probably be my first draft pick," UF coach Urban Meyer said of his quarterback after Saturday's win at Kentucky. "If they said, 'coach, you get one pick, I'd say, 'I've got mine."' Darren McFadden? Sorry, but you can't be on one of the worst teams in your conference and expect to be considered among the nation's elite. McFadden has tons of talent, but come talk to me when his team is bowl eligible and can actually beat a respectable SEC opponent. Colt Brennan's Hawaii. squad is still undefeated, but his four interceptions against San Jose State -even with a bad right ankle -look bad. Louisville's Brian Brohm needs to stop losing, period. The Cardinals just lost to Connecticut,and they have plummetted in the rankings since the season started. Don't even start with Michigan's Mike Hart. Hart's great, but Tebow's nearly as big as most of Appalachian State's defensive line. You can't be the leader of your team and lose to a I-AA squad and expect to be considered among the nation's elite. Gators show inexperience, doubles show promise TENNIS, from page 23 played a part in the tournament, as four of eight that made the trip were freshmen. Jackson indicated this was the source of his encouragement. "We have a lot of talent," he said. "We just don't have a lot of experience. We can definitely do better, but we're on the right track." UF brought plenty of youth to the doubles court with more encouraging results. Two pairings, made up of three freshmen and a senior, won three matches and advanced to the quarterfinal round before bowing out. Senior Nestor Briceno teamed up with freshman Alex Lacroix on one team, and freshmen Johnny Hamui and Jeff Dadamo comprised the other.

Sports TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSpc;-rts.org Gators scrimmage lacks standout defensive play 0 IT WAS THE TEAM'S FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE. By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org One day after its public debut, the UF men's basketball team has yet to make an impression. Associate Head Coach Larry Shyatt is unsettled following Sunday's scrimmage at the Alltel Wireless Fan Appreciation Day in the O'Connell Center. "We just finished watching the tape, and there's a lot of mixed emotions, a little disappointed really," Shyatt said Monday of the threeperiod, fifteen-minute scrimmage. "We had a couple of players stand out offensively. I think the disappointment was that we really didn't have a lineup or a group of players that stood out defensively." The afternoon event replaced UF's annual Midnight Madness. The women's team played one five-minute scrimmage following an autograph session. The men practiced a set of drills before competing in their own intrasquad matchup. The sides were shuffled throughout, and the final score ended in a 30-30 tie. Highlights of the scrimmage include two outside shots by center Marreese Speights and a put-back dunk by forwaid Chandler Parsons, who led all scorers with 11 points. Shyatt said he was impressed with Parsons' performance, especially the 6-foot-9 freshman's physical style of play. "The good thing was that he took the ball to the hole and did follow up some offensive rebounds," Shyatt said. "We've been physically weak in terms of getting to the glass, so that was a good thing." Freshman Nick Calathes made a mark of his own by adding 7 points, which included a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that gave his team the advantage after two quarters. Other standouts included Jai Lucas, who scored 7 points, and Speights, who contributed 9. One of the more intriguing lineups featured a three-guard setup of Lucas, Calathes and junior Walter Hodge. Sophomore Dan Werner, who scored 7 points, said the trio proved difficult to handle. "It was tough," Werner said. "You had to help pressure the ball a little bit. They had two McDonald's All Americans and a guy who won two national championships, so it was difficult, but I thought we handled it really well." "We just finished watching the tape, and there's a lot of mixed emotions, a little disappointed really." Larry Shyatt UF men's basketball associate head coach Sophomore Jonathan Mitchell said he believes the team has already begun to develop an identity "We're going to run and gun," Mitchell said. "We don't have the size down low, so we're just going to go out there and run. .It's a lot of fun, and it's obviously easy for the coaches because they don't have to call any plays." After his first taste of action, Mitchell said he can't wait for the season opener against Flagler College on Nov. 1. "I think it was good for us," he said. "It was the first time we got to put on a uniform and be out there in front of a crowd, especially with us being a young team. "I just came out there and tried to get everybody involved and tried to teach the young guys. .It was just good to finally be out there."

The Gators put four players in the tournament's singles round of 32 and one in the round of 16, but despite some close matches, they never achieved the breakthrough win they had hoped for. "Across the board, most of the guys had something that was encouraging," Jackson said. "And even when we were losing, we were losing close."

24, ALLIGATOR S TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2007 UF FOOTBALL Meyer lauds -By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org In UF coach Urban Meyer's opinion, the most important play of Saturday's win against Kentucky came with quarterback Tim Tebow on the sideline. Before Tebow connected with Percy Harvin for 40 yards and rumbled into the end zone from 2 yards out on the Gators' final drive, the quarterback's former high school rival, Brandon James, delivered the real backbreaker. With the Gators up 38-31 with 3:35 left and Kentucky kicking off, James returned the ball 26 yards to the UF 43-yard line. That's not normally all that impressive. But on this occasion the return team deserved credit, given that James was the only member of the unit who had not inched into Kentucky territory to prepare for a possible onside kick. "I still can't get over that happening," Meyer said. "I can't believe that happened. That changed the whole dynamic of the football game." With room to spare, UF offensive coordinator Dan Mullen then called more aggressive plays, leading to a touchdown on the fifth snap of the series that put the game out of reach. James also set up a score at the end of the first half with a 61-yard kickoff return to the Kentucky 38-yard line. "If I had to say what won that game, the kickoff return team won that football game," Meyer said.

Sophomore wide receiver Riley Cooper and offensive tackle Carlton Medder are also listed as questionable. Cooper broke a finger early on against Kentucky, and Medder was replaced late in the game by Marcus Gilbert after sustaining a heel injury. Medder left UF's practice on crutches Monday. CHAMPIONS CLUB: Tight end Cornelius Ingram, quarterback Tim Tebow, fullback Eric Rutledge and wide receivers Louis Murphy, Percy Harvin and Andre Caldwell made Meyer's weekly Champions Club. On defense, defensive tackle Javier Estopinan, linebacker -Brandon Spikes, cornerback Joe Haden, safety Tony Joiner and defensive ends Derrick Harvey and Jermaine Cunningham made the cut. Meyer named Caldwell the offensive player of the game, but he said the coaching staff chose not to name a defensive player of the game due to the number of yards the defense allowed against Kentucky.
