Nye gets rock-star welcome

By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Writer

As Bill Nye "The Science Guy" emerged onto the stage
of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday
night, he was met with wild screams and a standing ova-
tion.
The famous TV personality spoke to an auditorium
filled beyond capacity and then took questions from the
audience.
Nye, whose popular show "Bill Nye the Science Guy"
aired on PBS during the mid-'90s, spoke about science
topics such as global warming and Mars exploration. He
also told stories about his family, his own work in science
and his hope for the next generation of scientists.


"The reason why there was such a high turn-
out was because people recognize Bill Nye
as a father figure, an authority on science."
Jared Hamil
political science junior


Throughout the presentation, Nye injected his own
brand of light-hearted comedy.
By 7:30 p.m., the 1,700 allotted tickets had been
claimed, and about 200 people had congregated to watch
the show simulcast in the lobby and outside, where a pro-
jector had been set up on the lawn.
Jared Hamil, a political science junior, joked that Nye
was the "public-science-education system" for a genera-
tion.
"The reason why there was such a high turnout was
because people recognize Bill Nye as a father figure, an
authority on science," he said.
Nye began with a discussion about the exploration of

UF ACADEMICS

Podcasts can help reinforce lessons


By MELISSA GARCIA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The next time you see people listen-
ing to iPods, they may not be listening to
the latest hit song. There's a chance they
may actually be in the middle of review-
ing for their next big test.
Thanks to podcasting, UF instructors
have a new way to reinforce their cur-
riculums.
A podcast is a digital file made avail-
able online using syndication feeds.
Students can use iPods and other MP3
players to listen to podcasts.

game has moved

See story, pg. 19.


Professors in the Warrington College
of Business Administration imple-
mented podcasting as a way to ,-:
reinforce what is taught while
giving students the chance to
keep up with current events in
the business world.
Eric Olson, associate director
of information technology and
distance learning in the college, has \
used podcasting since fall 2005.
His podcast, "ISM SoundBytes,"
covers breaking IT news and reaches
about 600 students every year.
"We try to expose our students to a


variety of interesting technologies and
help them understand how they
might be used in a business environ-
a ment," he said.
While most of the audience con-
\ sists of business students, about
\ a third of these students come
from other colleges.
Students in Olson's course
are asked to listen to pod-
casts and are quizzed on the
-- content as proof of participation.
They are later required to record at least
one episode of a podcast.

Law student


hit by SUV


dies Tuesday

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Early Monday morning, before many
other UF students rolled out of bed or
started classes, Catherine Barclift ran.
Barclift was training for a half marathon,
her friends said. It was a part of her new
health kick.
But Barclift won't participate in the half
marathon. A day after she was hit by a car
during a jog around 8:30 a.m. Monday, she
died at Shands at UF.
Barclift, a 22-year-old law
Local student, suffered severe head
News injuries after an SUV hit her
WS at 34th Street and Radio
Road, said Lt. Keith Kameg,
Gainesville Police Department spokesman.
She was thrown about 40 feet and was
taken to the intensive care unit of Shands.
Barclift died at about 11:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Preliminary police reports state no
charges will be filed against the driver,
Kenneth Sarsony of Gainesville, Kameg
said.
Witnesses told police Sarsony was trav-
eling north in the inside lane of 34th Street,
Kameg said. The light was green.
Barclift was attempting to cross the
street while the do-not-walk signal was lit,
he said.
"I'd do anything to bring her back," said
Stephany Nino, one of Barclift's friends
from Florida State University.
Barclift graduated from FSU in May.
Nino and Barclift studied abroad togeth-
er in London in the summer of 2005.
Nino said they became friends because
they would always end up together in the
back of the line during tours.
"That's where the friendship started,"
she said. "We were the slow ones."
Ever since London, Barclift and Nino
were inseparable, she said.
"She was like my sister," Nino said.
She said she helped Barclift move to
Gainesville a few months ago, before she
started law school.

Flag football may be in Swamp


By MICHAEL DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Contributing Writer

At a school where football is practically a religion,
everyone wants a shot at gridiron glory.
Soon, students and faculty will once again have
their chance. As UF student and faculty athletes em-
bark on the intramural flag football playoffs, the stakes
are higher than ever.
This year's intramural flag football championship
games will be held at Florida Field on Dec. 3.
Marc Falkenstein, intramural flag football coordi-
nator, said moving the championship games to The
Swamp will only add to the already highly competitive
nature of the games.
He said the move is very important to the players.
They want to win a championship there, he said.
Falkenstein said playoff games have historically
drawn very large crowds. As many as 200 to 300 spec-
tators have shown up at some of the biggest games,
he said.
Falkenstein said he hopes that by moving the
championship games to The Swamp, they will be able
to draw even larger crowds.
"We hope that we are able to give students a differ-
ent experience than they usually have in that setting,"
he said.
If the idea of lacing up a pair of cleats and catching
a touchdown pass on Florida Field isn't tantalizing
enough, there is an even bigger incentive for players to
reach the championship.
"We are hoping that Urban Meyer and his staff will
be able to come out to watch the games," Falkenstein
said. "Hopefully he will do an honorary coin toss for
us."
Combatants on the gridiron also have a more famil-


iar trophy worth playing for.
As always, teams will be battling it out for the cov-
eted intramural championship T-shirts.
"That's what they play for," Falkenstein said. "They
take pride in that T-shirt."
Championship T-shirts have become somewhat of
a status symbol at UF, he said
"When you're walking around campus and you see
someone wearing that shirt, you know that they won,"
Falkenstein said. "It's a big deal."
"We hope that we are able to give
students a different experience than
they usually have in that setting."
Marc Falkenstein
intramural flag football coordinator

John Sigl, the captain of the Missouri Mud Ducks
team, has been playing intramural football for three
years and is excited about the prospect of playing
on the same field he watches from the stands on
Saturday.
"It's pretty awesome," said Sigl. "It's a really cool
opportunity."
Patrick Pomllampo, captain of another team, said
he thinks moving the championship games to The
Swamp will provide teams with a special atmosphere
that will attract more spectators.
"I think that it is going to be very competitive,"
Pomllampo said. "It's definitely a lot of extra motiva-
tion."
Brandon Morris, a referee, worries that as the stakes
rise, so too will tempers.
"You have some guys that are just hotheads and
want everything to go their way," Morris said.


New students must


take alcohol course
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Before UF freshmen and transfer students can register for
spring classes, they'll have to allocate some time to alcohol.
Students who started at UF during summer B or fall 2007
must complete the online alcohol education program on
myStudentBody.com before spring registration.
Until students complete the program, a hold will be placed
on their records, and they won't be able to sign up for classes.
The Community Alcohol Coalition, a group
Student created by UF President Bernie Machen to reduce
LiOt underage drinking, created the program, the pro-
gram's Web site states.
Completing the entire online course takes about an hour
and a half, and UF students must receive a score of at least 80
percent to pass, the site states.
The only information released to UF is the students' names,
ID numbers, course completion dates and whether they passed,
the site states.
Students coming to UF spring 2008 must complete the pro-
gram before fall registration in 2009.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said some people balked at
the program when it was created, but based on student feed-
back, it's been successful.
"People say they learned things they didn't know before.
That's really the whole idea," Orlando said. "Hopefully it'll
teach people something to get them to stop and think a little
bit."

Panel talks free speech, Tasers


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Tasers are still a hot topic for the
40 or so people who attended a panel
Tuesday night called "When Free
Speech & Tasers Meet."
Glenn M. Katon, director of the
American Civil Liberties Union's
Central Region chapter, said the event
was in response to media attention on
free speech and use of force.
"We thought there was probably
enough interest among college stu-
dents to have a big discussion on it,"


he said.
The discussion wasn't intended to
be a play-by-play of September's in-
cident in which Andrew Meyer, a UF
telecommunication senior, was Tasered
at a forum with Sen. John Kerry, al-
though the panel did discuss Meyer.
"We wanted it to be about the
broader topic," he said.
Free speech and use of force are
some of the most important issues in
society to the ACLU, he said.
The discussion covered free speech,
use of force, and the advantages and
disadvantages of Tasers.
Panelists were Gary Edinger, a First

"It's a current issue because

Chelsea Solmo
UF sophomore

After offering information on free
speech and Tasers, they opened the
floor to the audience, who asked ques-
tions such as how Tasers could have
affected the shootings at Virginia Tech
and why police officers in England
don't carry guns.
UF political science senior Delaney
Rohan said with so many conflicting
views on campus, it was good to hear
a voice of authority even if the pan-
elists disagreed on whether university
police should carry Tasers.
"I'm not really sure if it's more of a
free speech issue or more an excessive
use of force issue, and I was hoping
some of the ACLU lawyers could clear
that up for me," he said.
The event was sponsored by the
ACLU of Florida and three UF stu-
dent organizations: the American
Constitution Society for Law and
Policy, Amnesty International and
Students for a Democratic Society.
Chelsea Solmo, a UF neuroscience
sophomore, said the discussion was
not old news.
"It's a current issue because Tasers
are still on campus," said Solmo, a
committee member of the Progressive
Caucus.
The Progressive Caucus is a group
of 19 organizations founded, after
Meyer was Tasered.

Nothing New

Much of Grad Student Bill

of Rights already in place
When we first heard about the idea of a Graduate
Student Bill of Rights from Gator Party members
earlier this semester, we pricked up our ears. They
weren't sure at the time what exactly would be included, but
they explained that its purpose would be to protect graduate
students from being exploited by their departments and to curb
the discrimination some students, especially international and
female ones, said they have experienced.
It sounded like a good idea.
Well, at Tuesday's Student Senate meeting, the Graduate
Student Bill of Rights was presented and it passed. It will be
added to the Graduate Student Handbook if approved by a
long line of groups and people, with the provost at the end of
that line.
But we aren't as interested in the idea as we originally were.
In fact, we've read through it and think it's brace yourself
- dumb.
Why is it dumb? Because much of it duplicates what is
already in the Student Body constitution, which covers all UF
students, not just undergraduates. For example, the bill of rights
says graduate students should not have to deal with discrimina-
tion. While this is completely true and we're not disputing that
at all, our Student Body constitution already states that.
The fifth section of the bill of rights, which leads off with
"Graduate students have a right to guidance from the univer-
sity, their departments and individual faculty members," lists
several rights already granted to students.
"Graduate students should receive regular feedback and
guidance ... through a mutually agreeable schedule of confer-
ences"? Check. They're called office hours; "The right to con-
fidentiality in their communication with professors, staff, and
administrators"? Check. As for stating that "graduate students
should be given a fair opportunity to remedy deficiencies in
their academic performance," well, that sounds kind of like
special treatment.
One of the final sections of the bill of rights says "graduate
students have a right to share in the governance of the univer-
sity." Once again, this right is already afforded to them. They
have seats on the Student Senate. They have councils. They are
even on student-faculty committees, including the Committee
on a Civil, Safe and Open Environment. What more do they
need?
This bill of rights is trying to separate graduate students
from undergraduates. If we have a Graduate Student Bill of
Rights, next thing you know we'll need an Undergraduate
Student Bill of Rights.
And if one of the points of the bill of rights is violated, who
will graduate students go to for enforcement, and what kind
of punishment will violators be subjected to? Yes, the Student
Senate resolution supporting the bill of rights said the bill of
rights should give "the force and affect of official University
policy," but there are no proposals of how to enforce it or what
any punishments should be.
The bill of rights also says the university should provide
"reasonably available" office, study or lab space but a phrase
like "reasonably available" is widely open to interpretation,
rendering it almost meaningless.
We understand that graduate students are incomparable to
undergrads in many ways. But many of the "rights" are already
in place. Why must they be said twice?

RTS must advertise
apparently, Regional Transit System has changed
a few of its routes for its Later Gator service. I
hate to use an oxymoron, but it's a seriously
comedic matter.
Complaining about Gainesville public transportation
is a time-honored tradition among UF students.
There are as many complaints about the system as
complainers, with issues including fire ants at RTS
stops, off-schedule buses and too few buses for popular
routes.
For the bus company, changing three of its routes
before it advertises them doesn't help matters.
Even if RTS did not want students crossing one
of Gainesville's most dangerous streets, University
Avenue, there is still no excuse for passing the measure
before advertising it.
Besides, crossing University Avenue is not that dan-
gerous if you know what you're doing.
Traffic on both sides of the street runs in a cyclical
pattern. First, there's a swarm of cars, then they disap-
pear, then they reappear again, and then they stop for a
red light before they go again.
As long as people wait patiently at crosswalks, they
can cross safely.
I understand these complaints perfectly. As a high
school senior, I relied heavily upon public transporta-
tion to get me to and from school.
Four days a week, I would wait longer than an hour
to pay 50 cents for a three-mile ride down a busy city
street. If the bus service decided to change its routes and
times without telling me, that would make my life even
more complicated.
Either I would have to pay more money for two

bus route changes
routes and wait even longer, or
I would have to carry my really
heavy backpack for longer than
an hour in the beating hot sun,
wondering why the company left
me hanging.
Vincent Gagliano As a consumer of goods and
letters@alligator.org services, including RTS, this is
information I must know before-
hand so I can change my plans
accordingly.
Not all UF students have a car or moped filled with
gas so they can go someplace if they can't use a bus that
no longer comes their way.
Ultimately, if a company knowingly changes its
routes without informing its customers, it's guilty of
either unfairness or impulsive behavior.
In this case, it's impulsive behavior.
RTS provides all public transportation for students
in Gainesville. There was no justification for rushing to
change its routes without advertising them beforehand,
because students, more than anyone, needed to know
about the changes.
I will give RTS the benefit of the doubt for actively
striving to advertise the change and let people know
about the route as soon as possible.
I'll also give RTS credit for making changes in the
best interests of UF students to keep them safe. But
it would have been best if the bus service took some
preliminary steps before making the leap.
That is the cost of a cheap bus ride.

Letters to tIf, Edi.o
Women love spending time outdoors, too
I'm disappointed in you, Alligator. The year is
2007, you've been around for more than a century,
and you still allow blatantly sexist columns to be
published. I know they aren't necessarily your opin-
ions, but Tuesday's column "Camping can be fun
for both sexes" was highly inappropriate.
The author claimed men go camping and
"weather the elements" because it's a humbling
experience, while women want to stay at home with
their "objects of beautification." Here's a humbling
experience for you: Many of my female friends and
I love to go camping. We rockclimb, we backpack,
we kayak, we paddle, we surf, we ski, we go on
adventures. We don't shower, we don't primp and
we leave no trace.
Perhaps when Kyle Cox made his sweeping
generalization that women are more involved with
their looks and beauty rituals than nature and the
outdoors, he was really referring to girls. Because if
he would like to find some real women, some na-
ture-loving, nonshowering, backpacking-for-more-
than-five-days-at-a-time women, he can find us all
over UF's campus. He must not be that much of an
outdoorsman if he has yet to meet us.
So next time you go camping, men, enjoy your
beers at your site next to the trailhead. My female
friends and I will be enjoying the view from the tops
of mountains and laughing at your inability to
find camping comrades among our gender.

Column unfairly portrayed women as vain
In response to Mr. Cox's Tuesday column, it
could be said that all men are insensitive jocks who
are solely concerned with the length and girth of
their penises, but it's just not true. Neither was the
depiction of all women as addicts of "objects of
beautification" who are so needy of modem ame-
nities that they are completely detached from the
natural world.
While this stereotype may be true for some wom-
en, the generalization of all women as creatures of
the indoors is extremely fallacious and ridiculous.
It is possible that you surround yourself primarily


with such women, so it's the only truth you know.
But it's not the whole truth.
Some words of truth women have a strong
connectiortwith the natural world. Women get dirty,
make fires, pee outside, and yes, women fart, too.
Maybe Mr. Cox should broaden his horizons.
And by the way you can't conquer nature.
Cassie Elowe

TRiP has many female leaders, participants
In response to Mr. Cox's column on Tuesday, I
think I speak on behalf of most people when I ask if
he has ever been camping, and how many women,
let alone girlfriends, has he known?
As a female leader for the Travel and Recreation
Program, I can vouch that more than half of our
participants are females. We get participants at a
variety of experience and comfort levels, but I have
never encountered a girl who packed makeup or a
hair dryer. All of these girls practice "leave no trace"
on our trips, which means cat holes instead of porce-
lain toilets, drinking dishwater instead of appletinis
and wearing one non-designer outfit for the entire
weekend. It also so happens that more than half of
our organization's leaders are women.
For our leaders, building a primitive shelter
from available materials, hauling a 40-pound pack
up a 6,000-foot peak, and orienteering with a map
and compass are second nature. Mr. Cox objectified
women. This disappoints me from one anthropol-
ogy major to another. Mr. Cox's representation of
outdoorsy men as cavemen was equally narrow.
Most people who truly appreciate the outdoors
do not get away for a weekend to start a drunken
brawl or forest fire. Getting back to nature and away
from the constraints of our society is an essential ex-
perience, but women deserve to make that decision
for themselves without being coerced or judged.
I'm going to make an assumption that Mr. Cox's
idea of getting back to nature is a weekend sleeping
20 feet from his car at Ginnie Springs with a 24-pack.
So I invite Mr. Cox or any guy who thinks women
aren't cut out for the wilderness to come on one of
our trips.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT


Senate endorses grad student rights


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

In an effort to prevent
graduate students from being
bullied, the Student Senate
approved legislation Tuesday
for a graduate student bill of
rights.
The bill of rights would
serve as a reference for gradu-
ate students to know their
rights and the work environ-
ments they're entitled to, said
Cecilia Amador, vice president
for the Graduate Student


Council.
As an international stu-
dent from Peru, Amador said
she wasn't aware of how she
should be treated in her new
work environment.
Amador said a survey com-
pleted earlier this year by the
UF International Center and
UF Counseling Center found
one in four graduate students
would change faculty advisers
if possible.
"Sometimes they're feeling
mistreated, but (graduate stu-
dents) don't know if this is part


of grad school or not," Amador
said in an interview before the
meeting.
In another interview before
the meeting, Sen. Ranaldo
Allen, who is also Graduate
Student Council president,
said the council drafted the list
of rights. It was handed over to
the Senate to be added to the
Student Body Constitution,
Allen said.
After being approved by the
Senate and then Student Body
President Ryan Moseley, the
bill of rights must be approved

Cecilia Amador, vice president for the Graduate Student Council, speaks to the Student Senate
about a graduate student bill of rights at Tuesday night's meeting in the Reitz Union.


by UF's general, counsel, who
will make sure it doesn't over-
lap with existing policies at UF,
Allen said.
Allen defined bullying as
verbal harassment, humiliation
and excessive work duties.
In an interview before
the meeting, Sen. Heshan
"Grasshopper" Illangkoon,
who represents graduate and
professional students, said
negative environments for
graduate students aren't the
norm but are frequent enough
to be a concern.
"The fact that it does ex-
ist, it's something that people
need to look at closely," said
Illangkoon, who said he hasn't
been a victim of bullying.
The bill of rights would
help improve the relationship
between graduate students and
faculty advisers, he said.
During the "meeting,
Amador said international
graduate students are more
at risk of being bullied by
faculty advisers because they
control international students'
funding. If funding were cut,
it would result in the loss of
student status and student vi-
sas, she said.
She said she hopes UF will
consult with independent
faculty to find a solution to
bullying.
"We have the right to work
and study in a safe and healthy
environment," she said. "This
is something that really needs
to be taken care of. We've
been suffering for a long, long
time."

Event showcases services


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Local homeless organizations are hosting a
"Homeless Night Out and Service Fair" on the
Downtown Community Plaza tonight.
The event, which offers services to local
homeless people, will mean the Union Street
Farmers' Market must move to a different loca-
tion.
The market, which moved to the plaza on
Oct. 17 because of lack of space, will move back
to its original location in the Sun Center on
Wednesday evening.
Jim Wright, executive director of the Alachua
County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry,
said the group reached an agreement with the
city to move the farmers market for this week.
"It's like going back home for the weekend,"
said Charlie Lybrand, director of the Union
Street Farmers' Market.
He said the market will return to the plaza
next week.
"I'm sure some of our customers will be
confused for a week, but they'll find it," Lybrand
said.
Lybrand said the event was booked months
before the market signed up for the plaza loca-
tion.
The City of Gainesville/Alachua County
Office on Homelessness and the Homeless
Coalition is hosting it.
The service fair in the plaza will be from 3
p.m. to 5 p.m., dinner is from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
and the Homeless Night Out is from 6:30 p.m. to
midnight, a news release stated.
Wright said part of the service fair involves
different agencies being present to hand out


information.
It will feature more than 30 providers offering
services such as blood pressure testing, bicyde
repairs, shelter information and food stamp reg-
istration, the release stated.
"We're happy we can get everyone to work
together," Wright said.
About two and a half months planning have
gone into the event, he said.
The organization has had something on the
plaza every year for about six years, but it usu-
ally involved a breakfast, he said.
"We're happy we can get everyone
to work together."
Jim Wright
Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and
Hungry executive director

The past couple of years, it has evolved to
include more direct services to people, Wright
said.
"This is the biggest one that we've done," he
said.
Money was donated by individuals and or-
ganizations to buy food for the dinner.
The meal is coordinated by the Coalition
Hunger Workgroup, and it is prepared and
served by Fire of God Ministries, Wright said.
The Homeless Night Out will include an
awards presentation and talks by different orga-
nizations, the release said. There will also be live
music acts at the event, Wright said.
People are encouraged to donate dean blan-
kets, socks and coats at the event so they can be
distributed to those who need the items, Wright
said.


Water quality studied


By CHRISTY LAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Lake Wauburg is known for its
scenic views and recreational activi-
ties. Now, a group is working to keep
it that way.
The Orange Creek Basin Working
Group, which indudes representa-
tives of UF, the city of Gainesville, the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection and various other environ-
mental and community organiza-
tions, will hold a public meeting
today addressing concerns about
water quality.
Students and community mem-
bers are invited to voice their opin-
ions at the meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the
Alachua County Health Department
building.
Members of the group are hoping
to gain local input and strategy to ad-
dress the maximum amount of an im-
pairing substance or stressor that can
assimilate in Lake Wauburg and other
lakes in the Orange Creek Basin, said
Mary Paulic, an environmental con-
sultant for the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
The Orange Creek Basin encom-
passes lakes primarily in Alachua
County, states the St. John's River
Water Management District Web site.
The meeting will address the im-


pact of septic tanks and human activi-
ty on the lake, said Gus Olmos, super-
visor of the Water Quality Protection
Program in Alachua County.
The Alachua County Health
Department has been testing septic
tanks around Lake Wauburg to en-
sure they are up to proper code.
If septic tanks are not dug deep
enough into the ground or are too
dose, they could be
Public leaking pollutants into
Health the lake.
Although humans
do affect the quality of Lake Wauburg,
high levels of natural nutrients al-
ready exist because of the Hawthorne
Formation, a deep layer of soils con-
taining fossils that is located under
Lake Wauburg, said Eric Schulz, the
regional coordinator of Lakewatch,
a statewide volunteer water quality
monitoring program.
However, the group's goal is to be
proactive about the situation even if
the causes of the high-nutrient levels
cannot be distinguished between nat-
ural or human sources, Paulic said.
"It is important to know where
the pollutants are coming from, but
we're more concerned with fixing
what we know we can," said Gina
Hawkins, public education spe-
cialist of Gainesville Public Works
Department.


SFCC teams up with Locks of Love to hold donation drive


* IT WILL TAKE PLACE TODAY
FROM 9 A.M. TO 1 P.M.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local residents in need of a haircut
will have a chance to give their locks to
a donation drive sponsored by SFCC
today:
SFCC is holding its first hair-dona-
tion drive today for Locks of Love, a
nonprofit organization that provides
hair pieces to children who are suffering


from long-term medical hair loss.
The Locks of Love Web site lists
alopecia and cancer as possible causes
for hair loss.
Lucy Paltoo, graduate assistant of the
Office of Community Service at SFCC,
said other colleges- that were participat-
ing in the nationwide program inspired
her to organize one for SFCC.
"This is the first time Santa Fe has
ever done anything like this," Paltoo
said.
She said that 10 inches is the mini-
mum hair length needed to donate.
The group is also offering cuts and


trims for a $5 donation each, Paltoo said.
. The donation drive is a way to get the
students and faculty involved who do
not have 10 inches to donate, she said.
Everyone is invited, and it is not
exclusive to SFCC faculty and staff, she
added.
Locks of Love was started in 1997 by
Madonna Coffman when her 4-year-old
daughter was diagnosed with alopecia
and lost all of her hair, the organization's
Web site stated.
The donation drive will take place
in the Oak Grove at SFCC's Northwest
Campus from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.


* Hair that is colored or permed J.
is acceptable, but hair that is
bleached is not.
* Hair must be washed, dried and
worn in a braid or ponytail.
* Dreadlocks are not accepted.
* Curly hair may be pulled straight
to make the 10-inch minimum.

Barclift's favorite hobby was shopping


JOGGER, from Page 1


Barclift wanted to follow in her father's footsteps,
Nino said. He's a lawyer.
Barclift was passionate about human rights issues
and wanted to make a difference, Nino said.
Nino talked to Barclift for the last time Sunday night.
"She called me when I was taking a nap, and I told
her I'd call her back. I never did," Nino said. "One day
you're talking to your best friend, and the next day, she's
dead."
When Nino got to the hospital Monday, she said'
she didn't recognize her best friend because she was so
banged up.
Bardift always wanted to look her best, Nino said.
If she had been able to speak or move, Nino said
Bardift would have probably made a fuss when doctors
shaved her head.
Barclift was in a coma after being hit, said Kate
McCoy, another friend of Barclift's from FSU.
"Even though she couldn't respond, they said she
could still hear us," McCoy said. "That was comfort-
ing."
McCoy and Bardift were members of FSU's chapter


of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority.
As soon as McCoy heard Barclift was in an accident,
she came to Gainesville.
She also created a Facebook group Tuesday called
"I'm praying for Catherine Barclift." As of Tuesday
night, 483 people belonged to the group.
"Even though she couldn't respond, they
said she could still hear us. That was
comforting."
Kate McCoy
Barclift's friend

McCoy said Bardift's favorite hobby was shopping.
"So many times we just ate beans for dinner because
she wanted to go shopping," McCoy said with a laugh.
McCoy said she's still in shock over her best friend's
death. She hasn't allowed herself to let the grief sink in
because she wanted to hold herself together in front of
Bardift's family and other friends, she said.
"I thought there should be at least one person hold-
ing it together," McCoy said. "The hardest part is yet to
come."


Nye discussed space, global issues


NYE, from Page 1


Mars and his involvement with NASA and
the Mars Exploration Rovers. He half-jok-
ingly encouraged the younger generation
to visit the red planet.
Nye also spoke about the necessity for
using alternative energy resources, such as
electric fuel cells for cars, solar-powered
water heaters and wind energy.
He approached the subject of global
climate change in typical "Science Guy"
style.
"I wouldn't bring this up, except we're
all going to die!" he said.
While displaying pictures of smog-filled
streets in Los Angeles and Beijing, Nye said
the Earth cannot survive if China begins
to use resources as heavily as the United
States.
"We are going to need two more Earths,
and we can't have that," he said. "They're
too hard to get."
Nye said that the next generation of sci-
entists, engineers and leaders have a lot of
opportunities to change the world.
For more than 15 years, Nye has worked


to popularize science and make complex
concepts captivating for kids and adults.
"I used to watch Bill Nye's videos when
I was in elementary school," said Gina
Rivera, an elementary education senior. "If
I could keep those and show them in my
classroom, it would be a great asset."
Paul Hapeman, a UF lecturer in biol-
ogy, said Nye's approach
to science education for
children is critical.
Nye has made science
accessible to different age
groups, he said.
"I think the contribu-
e tions that Bill Nye has
Nye made to science education
are extremely valuable," he said. "Science
education, at times, requires finesse."
Darin Acosta, UF professor of physics,
agreed. He said science might sometimes
come off dry but that it doesn't have to be
that way.
"I think you've got to get the kids in-
terested," he said. "If they go into middle
school or certainly high school with a bad
impression or no impression of science,
then we're selling ourselves short."


Some assignments use podcasts


IPOD, from Page 1


Olson said the project has been
popular since its beginning.
Recently, the class has added audio
and video formats of lectures to pod-
casting.
"I've had students write to me that
they watch lectures while commuting
on buses and subways," he said. "One
student said he listens to lectures a
second time on his iPod while vacu-
uming his apartment."
Other business podcasts cover top-
ics related to real estate and entrepre-
neurship, and many feature exclusive
interviews and guest speakers.

Languages and Literature, professor
Gillian Lord gives her Spanish p0 net-
ics class podcast group assignments.
Students are asked to subscribe
and listen to each group's podcasts.
They comment and critique each other
while getting more oral practice to


improve their own foreign accents,
she said.
Lord decided to introduce podcast-
ing into her curriculum last year, she
said.
"I do a lot of work with technol-
ogy," she said. "I used to have stu-
dents record assignments on audio.
However, I thought
UF the syndication of
Academics podcasts would get
them that feeling of
community."
For the most part, Lord said stu-
dents enjoy the podcasting assign-
ments and claims it helps them learn
more.
"My goal was to give students the
chance to get more speaking practice,"
she said. "I'll be using podcasts again
in the spring."
Lord is the first teacher in the
department to use podcasting in her
curriculum.
"For now, I'm just tweaking it," she
said. "I guess I'm a pioneer."

Brewer, Richard stick together at start of pro careers


* THE FORMER GATORS LIVE
IN THE SAME HIGH RISE.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

MINNEAPOLIS One time
zone, 1,460 miles and a lifestyle
away from the doldrums of
Gainesville's cozy palmettos,
Corey Brewer and Chris Richard
are exchanging trash talk and
shoves.
The leaves already hint of au-
burn and it will snow soon in these
parts, so some Madden football
video game sessions suit the two
just fine.
Alas, Richard prevails again in
what appears to be a recent trend.
Or is it?
"Aw man, I beat him every
time," Brewer said.
"Corey, tell the truth," Richard
snapped. "You have to swear to
God when you say that."
"Well, I did have a hot streak
a couple of weeks ago," Brewer
responded.
Aside from difficulties on
the horizon, the two Minnesota
Timberwolves rookies, are loving
life. Seven months removed from
back-to-back national champion-
ships with the Gators, Brewer and
Richard have started anew in the
Land of 10,000 Lakes with lucra-
tive contracts and professional
stature.
That's not to say the transition
has been a breeze.
"Right when I got drafted, I
was like, 'Dang, this is crazy,'" said
Brewer, who immediately bought
a blood-red Lexus for his mother,
Glenda, and paid off his parents'
house. "But then, after being here
a couple of weeks, I realized it was
too weird without Al (Horford),
Joakim (Noah) and the guys."
For the past three years,
Brewer and Richard thrived as
cornerstones of a Gators dynasty.
Brewer, the 2007 Final Four's Most
Outstanding Player, provided the
toothy smile and uncanny humor.


Richard, UF's bench bruiser, ex-
uded a lovable, quiet charisma.
But all good things must ...
well, you know. Brewer had noth-
ing more to accomplish in col-
lege, joining classmates Horford
(Atlanta), Noah (Chicago) and
Taurean Green (Portland) in the
NBA. Minnesota drafted Brewer
seventh overall. Then, the surprise
- the Timberwolves selected
Richard in the second round.
The two bonded immediately.
After all, they had already shared
the same cell phone bill since 2004.
The rookies rented condos 10
doors from each other in the same
downtown high rise. They began
eating together, visiting the Mall of
America together and getting lost
in the new metropolis together.


"We love each other," Richard
said.
Unfortunately, the two don't
share identical basketball fore-
casts.

"Right when I got drafted,
I was like, 'Dang, this is
crazy.'"
Corey Brewer
Minnesota Timberwolves forward


The Timberwolves imploded
their core during the off-season by
trading Kevin Garnett to Boston.
It's up to Brewer who is
featured on the Minnesota media
guide with center Al Jefferson and
guard Randy Foye and a slew of


other young players to sweep the
rubble under the rug and revive a
stagnant franchise.
Brewer has played sparingly in
two games thus far, tallying a total
of 23 minutes while scoring just
two points. But Minnesota coach
Randy Wittman stressed his rota-
tion will continue to evolve.
"If you can defend and then add
a little scoring, you can be a really
good player in this league," said
Wittman, who compared Brewer's
thin build and versatility to former
Laker great Michael Cooper.
"He's the kind of guy we've
always wanted. The skills he has,
you can't teach."
Just a few games into his first
preseason, Brewer already had one
NBA All Star sold.


on Oct. 23 in Minneapolis.


"He's long," Milwaukee's
Michael Redd told the Milwaukee
Journal Sentinel after watching
Brewer score 27 points while add-
ing two steals and two blocks dur-
ing a preseason game. "He's going
to be awesome an all-defensive
player, definitely."
Meanwhile, Richard still has
some proving to do. Though
Minnesota has signed the 'foot-9
post player, it could send Richard
to the Development League at any
moment.
He was listed as one of three
inactive players on the 15-man
roster before playing four minutes
Tuesday in Minnesota's loss to the
Orlando Magic.
"I do whatever I'm told,"
Richard said. "I don't think I really
have a choice."
Overhearing the conversation,
Brewer chimed in.
"I haven't even thought about
that," he said. "It would hurt. It
would be weird."
That's not to say Minnesota
doesn't appreciate Richard's game
- far from it. Wittman loves his
physical play. And Vice President
of Basketball Operations Kevin
McHale, a former legendary
forward with the Celtics, tutors
Richard after every practice. As if
to prove his worth, Richard broke
a rim during an Oct. 2 practice in
Istanbul, Turkey.
"I think I shook the building,
'cause a sign fell down," Richard
said.
"Incredible Hulk strength,"
Brewer commented.
As for the first-rouna pick?
Brewer hopes to refine his ballhan-
dling and outside shooting. He has
been working with Timberwolves
assistant general manager and
former NBA sharpshooter Fred
Hoiberg to improve the latter.
Dreaming of a long-lasting
career alongside Richard, Brewer
said, "Everybody is a star in this
league.-That's why you have to
bring it every night. I think I'm
prepared."


UF VOLLVY AL

Despite on-court arguments, players respect officials


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

It happens multiple times per game the
ball hits the floor, the official blows the whis-
tle and someone is not happy with the call.
To the untrained eye, it would appear
that volleyball players could not possibly
feel anything but dislike for the officials.
But in reality, that's hardly the truth.
"We appreciate the work that they do,"
senior outside hitter Marcie Hampton said.
"They're just trying to do the best that they
can."
The relationship between the players
and the referees is certainly not belligerent.
UF coach Mary Wise even described it as
professional.
Of course, there are those times where the
players and coaches are upset with a call on
the court.
Whenever an official whistles senior set-


ter Angie McGinnis for a contact violation,
she angrily slaps her hands together, venting
her frustration.
She said she most often sees a question-
able call when a ball is touched and goes out
of bounds, yet the officials call the play as if
no one had touched it.
"You kind of look to them, like, 'How
come you didn't see that?' McGinnis said.
"You can't be mad at them, I guess, because
they're going to make a couple calls that
could go either way."
Everything isn't cut-and-dry, however.
With four officials on the court, sometimes
they will disagree with each other or the
players will disagree with their coaches.
"Sometimes I'll disagree with Mary,"
McGinnis said. "Mary will get up off the
bench and be like, 'Oh, there was definitely a
touch.' But then I'm like, 'No there wasn't.'"
McGinnis said arguing or making a point
to the officials only goes so far.


Very rarely will the argument of a player
or coach have any impact on an official's
decision.
"Once a decade is a pretty good success
rate," Wise said. "The best
you could get in volleyball
would be a replay."
Officials can issue yel-
low or red cards when
k [ players or coaches get
out of line, resulting in
anything from a conceded
McGinnis point to a player expul-
sion, depending on the
severity of the offense.
No one at UF has received any formal
reprimanding this season.
McGinnis and Hampton both said they
had not been given yellow cards their entire
college career, but said they did get them in
high school.
Their lack of yellow cards in college


could be attributed to their increased matu-
rity, McGinnis said.
UF does not keep track of yellow cards
given out to players or coaches.
The players have known many of the
officials for their tenure at UF and some
even longer than that, fostering a peaceful
coexistence.
Hampton said she had some of the same
officials when she was in high school.
"It's kind of cool to almost like gibw up
with them, because, hey, we started out in
high school as well, and now everyone gets
to college," Hampton said.
So even though they don't always get
along on the court, the dynamic between
players and officials is one of trust.
"I trust that the refs aren't out to sabotage
anyone," Hampton said. "They're just call-
ing what they see.
"But maybe some of them should get their
eyes checked," she added with a laugh.

UF oblivious to legacy

FOOTBALL, from page 19

"I think it will always be there and we're always not one
to run from it," Meyer said. "Just walk out in the stadium and
walk downstairs and you can see what happened in the '90s.
But it has no bearing on this game."
Spurrier is ancient history. Just ask UF's
young players, some of whom have no clue
what was occurring in Gainesville while
they potty trained.
"I didn't know much about Florida
football, but I always heard like he was a
big offensive guru," said sophomore wide
receiver Jarred Fayson, a Tampa native.
Meyer "He's the spread offense and throwing the
ball down the field. That's pretty much all I knew. He was a
coach at Florida."
Wide receiver Dallas Baker represented the last link to
Spurrier on UF's roster and exhausted his eligibility last sea-
son.
Spurrier recruited Baker before bolting for the Washington
Redskins in 2002.
With UF playing South Carolina in November, the game's
prominence is too big to shine the spotlight on one man. The
Gators need a win to keep their fleeting SEC title hopes alive.

INJURY UPDATE:

Ingram's ankle

Football ter he sprained it last
week at practice.
Ingram played
against Vanderbilt but failed to catch
a pass for the first time this season.


But for someone who can only be stopped if the
quarterback is sacked, as Heater put it, shouldn't Harvin
crave the attention?
Most players say they don't care about it, and most
won't mean it.
Harvin means it.
That's because he has been on the other side. -Ie was
the player that every opponent wanted a piece of, the
one that every drooling recruiting expert lavished with
attention. Everyone watched his every move, waiting
for him to screw up. And there were screwups.
He came to Gainesville with a reputation as a bad
boy full of attitude problems.
"I don't want to say a lot of it wasn't my fault a lot


"He's still a little hobbled, but
he's a lot better," Meyer said. "He
told me it's 100 percent better than
last week."
Wide receiver Riley Cooper
continues his battle with his broken
finger, which has sidelined him for
the past two games.
"He actually caught the ball
today," Meyer said. "He gets so frus-
trated. ... He's just a talented, good
kid. We've just got to get him."


of it was my fault," Harvin said. "But at the same time, it
was a lot of people just taking shots at me and I got fed
up with it. I was too young to deal with it, and I didn't
know how to deal with it."
He had to endure cheap shots. One opponent even
spit in his face.
Now, he's not the one who stands out, and he doesn't
have to be. He's so talented he can be the second option
and still be the most explosive player in the nation.
Even if he is the No. 1 option, he can handle it now.
You can't completely blame him for not knowing
how to handle the simultaneous attention and criticism
he had in high school.
"Virginia was a lot of negative stuff from people not
knowing what was going on," Harvin said. "A lot of
people took shots at me."
Now he's the one dealing the shots, and the rest of the
SEC has to deal with the new, improved Harvin.

Spurrier story getting stale for rivals

2006 at The Swamp.

The crows from Gamecock Country and the chomps from
Gator Nation are echoing the same phrase.
It's not about the O1' Ball Coach anymore.
UF players and coaches are fielding fewer Steve Spurrier
questions as the No. 17 Gators (6-3, 4-3 Southeastern
Conference) prepare to travel to South Carolina (6-4, 3-4 SEC)
for their potential SEC finale.
The South Carolina coach agrees that Saturday's game is
less about facing his former team and more about a budding
southern rivalry.
"It's just South Carolina versus Florida now," Spurrier said.
Many factors have faded the Spurrier versus UF story in the
last two years.
For one thing, the games have been dose and plump with
postseason implications.
Jarvis Moss' block of destiny
on a last-second, potentially game-
winning field goal attempt in 2006
propelled the Gators to a national
championship.
The year before, in Spurrier's first
season at South Carolina, he knocked Urban Meyer off his ped-
estal and the Gators out of the SEC Championship Game and
into the Outback Bowl
Still, both those games were hyped on Spurrier storylines as
the ball coach beat his alma mater one year and returned to The
Swamp the next.
"To me, that's what it was all about the first couple of years,"
Spurrier admitted.
Meyer is hoping the Spurrier angle can be thrown out with
Miss Teen South Carolina's Q-and-A blunder and the rest of
yesterday's news.
Spurrier has now faced the Gators twice, so the novelty is
nearly nonexistent.
Still, Meyer can't help but notice Spurrier's accomplish-
ments littered on the orange walls of his home stadium.
Spurrier was part of the inaugural class inducted last year
into the school's ring of honor, which surrounds the north
scoreboard.
His blue No. 11 jersey, commemorating his Heisman Trophy
in 1966, holds a spot in the southeast corner of the stadium near
the years commemorating his championships.

Gators head into SEC Tournament looking for revenge


Nicole Satker / Alligator Staff
UF sophomore forward Ashlee Elliott battles with LSU midfielder Malorie Rutledge dur-
ing the Gators' 5-0 win against the Tigers at Pressly Stadium on Oct. 28.


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Consistent winning gives any team a
swagger.
So excuse the UF soccer team (13-4-2,
9-2 Southeastern Conference) if the players
have gotten a bit cocky during their current
nine-game winning streak.
It's just that as far as the Gators are con-
cerned, there aren't many teams that can
match their depth and experience.
"Honestly, if a team wants to beat us,
they've got to have more heart," forward
Ashlee Elliott said. "I don't think there has
been a team that's done that yet. Every
match we've played has been a battle to the
last minute. ... There wasn't a time when
we didn't want to win."
And as Kentucky (10-6-3, 4-6-1 SEC)
prepares to play UF tonight at 6 ini the
opening round of the SEC Tournament in
Orange Beach, Ala., the Wildcats will have
to be certain they can match the Gators'
intensity.
Kentucky appears to be up to the chal-
lenge, though. Following an impressive
6-0-1 start, the defending SEC Tournament
champions were expecting to continue
their run in conference play.
They didn't. The Wildcats opened SEC
play with five consecutive losses and faced
the possibility of missing the conference
tournament.
Kentucky pulled it together following
a loss to Georgia. The team has won three
of its last four games, squeaking into the
Tournament as the No. 8 seed.
UF, the No. 1 seed, is less concerned with
Kentucky's recent hot play, and is focusing
on avenging its 2-1 loss to the Wildcats in
'the SEC title game last year.
Despite claiming a 1-0 victory against
Kentucky earlier this season, the Gators
relish the opportunity to knock them out in


the first round.
"There's definitely a revenge factor,"
Elliott said. "We only beat them [1-0], and
we feel like we should've beaten them by
more. I think coming out and playing them
in the first round is really going to show
them that we are here, and we are the team
to beat. And playing them earlier, I think
we have a good heads-up on them."
UF coach Becky Burleigh is a bit less
brash. Though she'd also like to beat the
Wildcats, she's more concerned with main-
taining their current success.
"Honestly, if a team wants to
beat us, they've got to have more
heart."
Ashlee Elliott
UF forward


"It's just a case where we want to keep
our momentum going," Burleigh said.
"That's more a motivator than anything
that happened last year.
"It's just going to be a battle of two
tough teams two teams that are on a
roll. That's a good thing for Kentucky, and
a good thing for us."
For the Gators, the Wildcats represent
what they didn't do last season and what
they intend to claim this year: The SEC
Tournament title.
Seniors and underclassmen alike view
Kentucky as a missed opportunity and a
chance at retribution.
"It was a really tough loss last year,"
defender Lauren Hyde said. "We knew we
were playing Kentucky, and we went in
there thinking we're going to win. And we
just didn't play our best. But we definitely
want both this year because last year we
were expecting to win both, and we didn't
come through."
