Jenna Bush speaks at Gainesville church
* THE FIRST DAUGHTER
READ FROM HER NEW BOOK.
By KATIE GALLAGHER
First Daughter Jenna Bush en-
couraged a local audience Thursday
night to change the world through
small acts of kindness.
Before signing copies of her
book, "Ana's Story: A Journey of
Hope," Bush spoke in Gainesville
to the 500-person audience about
the book's main character, her work
with UNICEF and the importance
of making a difference. The speech,
sponsored by Barnes & Noble, was
at Grace United Methodist Church.
Bush met Ana, then 17, during
an eight-month internship with
UNICEF in Latin America and the
"Ana changed my life," she said.
The teenage mother was HIV-
positive, abused and shuffled
through the system, Bush said.
She invited the audience to fol-
low along as she read aloud the first
four chapters of the book, which
outlined Ana's tragic early life.
"I want you to know this isn't the
most depressing book you'll ever
read," she said when she finished.
More importantly, she said,
Ana's life isn't depressing she's
full of hope.
Ana's real name is not used in the
book and her face is not shown in
the photographs because the stigma
of HIV could get her kicked out of
school, Bush said.
A short film narrated by Bush
outlined some of the work UNICEF
does to help children.
"We can all do so much. You
don't have to move far away or
spend lots of money," she said.
Bush also recognized Jessica
Feagle, 16, and Natasha Williams, 15,
both of P.K. Yonge Developmental
Research School, as winners of the
essay contest "How I Can Make a
Feagle said her essay was about
how small actions can change the
world and was based on a home-
less boy she met and spoke with one
night in Micanopy.
Williams said her essay was on
preventing disease in Sudan.
Both girls spoke to Bush before
the speech and received free copies
of "Ana's Story."
Kristin Russell, a UP sophomore,
and Rebekah Sellers, a UF public
relations junior, said they were im-
pressed by Bush's talk.
"I thought it was really touch-
ing," Russell said. "I didn't know
much about UNICEF and what they

SG cabinet sponsors collection for soldiers overseas
By LAUREN COLLINS
Alligator Contributing Writer
By collecting donations to be sent over-
seas, UF students will soon have the oppor-
tunity to reach out to fellow Gators serving
in the military.
Project SLOSH, or Sending Love to Our
Serving Heroes, a new organization spon-
sored by Student Government's Community
Involvement Cabinet, is collecting donations
to send to soldiers before the end of the fall
"A lot of students don't realize what
people our age have sacrificed," said Erica
Rakow, an assistant director for the cabinet.
"We hope this project will bring awareness
about young soldiers serving overseas."
The cabinet is asking students to donate

toiletries such as deodorant, toothpaste,
soap and razors. Nonperishable snacks
like jerky, cookies and nuts are also
requested, Rakow said.
The idea for the project arose
after a corporal, currently serving
in Iraq, e-mailed the UP Universttlv
Athletic Association asking UF t,
sponsor his unit.
He didn't ask for money but wrote that
"it's the simple things in life that make
our life a little easier." The main collection
area is on Turlington Plaza on Thursday
and Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Students who are unable to bring their
donations to the plaza can drop them off ir
the SG office in a designated bin. The cabi-
net will collect items until Thanksgiving and
plans to ship them in time for the holidays,

With holidays approaching, officials worry for students
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
Thanksgiving and Christmas
breaks are around the corner,
leaving UF officials worried that
some students might not make it
back to school after the holidays.
An average of about 20 UF
students die each calendar year,
said Gene Zdziarski, UF dean of
Most of those deaths occur in
traffic accidents when students
commute to or from school for
holiday breaks, Zdziarski said.
Twenty-six UF students have
died so far this year, a circum-
stance he called "very unusual."
Out of the 26 deaths, 11 of
them were due to car accidents.
"We're definitely concerned
about the whole situation," he
said. "This is not something you
can predict. There isn't any real
understanding of why."
Ten of those deaths occurred
in the 12 weeks since this semes-
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said there's no way to explain the
large number of deaths in such a
short period of time.
"What can you do?" Orlando
asked. "Tell people to be careful,

in the last month of

holiday traveling is bound to
bring more fatalities.
Out of 110 student deaths

by car, motorcycle or bicycle ac-
cidents, UF records show. .
Fifty-one of the deaths dur-
ing those years occurred out of
Zdziarski said UF tries to
encourage students to practice
personal safety through pro-
grams such as GatorWell Health
But UF can only go so far,
"The big message is, be safe,"
he said. "Think before you act."
Paul Schauble, a UF staff psy-
chologist, said students' deaths
are particularly traumatic for
other students because they may
have not yet experienced any
personal tragedies in their own
"Most students are at an age
where they're becoming aware of
their parents' and grandparents'
mortality," Schauble said. "It
brings it home to them."
Zdziarski said he knows
there's not much UF can do to
prevent accidents while students
are away from campus. He said
he hopes students make safety a

school," he said.

S"Some people drink so much
that they don't make it through

GatorWell coordinator of alcohol

Glassman said it seems the incen-
tives have been successful based on
the data GatorWell has gathered.

much, he said.
In terms of "bang for the buck,"
he said the benefits of keeping stu-

"I think it shows that the univer-

However, UF is realistic about
students' habits, he said.
"Is this the solution? Is this the
panacea? Is this the magic number?"
Glassman asked. "No. Some people
will probably just ignore it, but it's
better than doing nothing."

UF to host Auschwitz conference
* THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE
HARN MUSEUM AND UF HILLEL.
By KORI FREDERICK
A conference about the legacy of the Holocaust
and one of the era's most infamous death camps will
be hosted at UF during Veteran's Day weekend.
The conference, titled "Imaging the Unimaginable:
The Iconicization of Auschwitz," starts at the Ham
Museum on Sunday and continues at UF Hillel on
This international conference is meeting to discuss
the historical significance of the Holocaust and the
role of Auschwitz, a Nazi death camp, as an archive
and a museum, according to the UF Center for Jewish
Studies Web site. The focus will be on the historical
significance of what happened at Auschwitz.
The event will also examine the question of actual
ownership of the camp and show a documentary and
feature film about it, according to the Web site.
Amos Eschel, a Hillel participant and UF math-
ematics and computer science senior, said he's not
sure how he feels about turning the camp into a

6, ALLIGATOR S FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9,2007
Don't you sometimes wish you could retreat from the ex-
ams and papers back into the fray of '90s television shows?
Things were so much easier when Clarissa explained it all.
Or when Mr. Feeny was your life counselor. Or when Zack-
Morris was the hottest guy around. If only we had the DVDs
of these shows. You can reminisce, too. Join us as we wax
nostalgic in this week's old-school-was-the-best-school edi-
Darts & Laurels
He's the guy who inspired this week's theme, so we've
gotta give a we-couldn't-get-the-theme-song-out-of-our-
head-for-days LAUREL to Bill Nye "The Science Guy" for
making all our childhood dreams come true. He showed up
at the Accent-sponsored speech in his ubiquitous bow tie and
with his unique brand of humor. He talked about topics we
all know but added his own spin arid approached them dif-
ferently than someone like,, say, your physics professor. Plus,
he's probably a reason many students at UF are interested in
science, just like LeVar Burton's show "Reading Rainbow"
got many of us into books.
Up next, we give a they-don't-put-this-stuff-on-TV-too-
often LAUREL to volunteers for Gainesville's "Homeless
Night Out and Service Fair" held Wednesday. Sure, many
shows from our youth may have had a homeless character
for an episode or two, but they never stayed on the show
for too long not too realistic, is it? Luckily, hundreds of
UF students and Gainesville residents understand this and
volunteered at the event, offering clothing, information and
more to Gainesville's homeless. Hopefully the homeless will
experience a series-finale happy ending.
Here's a this-ain't-Camp-Anawanna DART to the Gator
Athletic Ticket Order Request System, which still relies
on phone-ins to order tickets. But we don't live in the back-
woods; We're not at summer camp (although we hold it
in our hearts). It's time G.A.T.O.R.S. switched over to the
Internet. Student Sen. Jordan Johnson is looking into solving
the tickets problem with the help of a student survey and the
University Athletic Association. We say anything that lets
students spend less time on the phone is a good thing, espe-
cially in this "Wild and Crazy Kids" time of our lives.
Next we give a solving-this-problem-is-like-an-episode-
of-"Legends-of-the-Hidden-Temple" LAUREL to Delta
Delta Delta Sorority for its campaign to make UF's so-
rorities and fraternities greener. We're sure Olmec would
approve. The Greeks will challenge themselves to change
their lifestyles for the greener and make their houses more
sustainable, with recycling programs, compact fluorescent
lightbulbs or switching from Styrofoam products to recycled
paper. We hope other Greeks jump on this hot trend like Kel
jumped on a bottle of orange soda.
Only days after Accent announced former U.S. Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales would speak at UF this month,
the U.S. Senate is closing in on confirming his replacement.
We've got to give a Scooby-Doo-and-Co.-would-never-
let-them-get-away-with-this DART to Michael Mukasey.
Despite saying he doesn't consider waterboarding a form of
torture, he is supposed to be confirmed with votes to spare.
Even though he's said he would follow the anti-waterboard-
ing laws passed by Congress, having him as attorney general
won't look good to the rest of the world which already
doesn't like us too much.
Finally, it's a we-need-new-episodes-of-our-favorite-
shows-even-if-they-aren't-from-the-'90s DART to the Writers
Guild of America, whose members are protesting that they
aren't getting revenues from shows' DVDs and the Internet.
We know writers gave us great shows like "The Secret World
of Alex Mack." We know without them we never would have
had "The Adventures of Pete & Pete." And we know today
we can't keep going without new episodes of "The Daily
Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Office."
Please, get the contracts figured out so the next generation
of kids will have great TV shows to remember.

Records book, I am sorry to report you just missed
your chance this year. Thursday marked the third an-
nual Guinness World Records Day.
On Thursday, more than 150,000 courageous people
from all over the globe attempted record-breaking feats,
some of which included "Sharing a Bathtub with the Most
Rattlesnakes," and "Most Concrete Blocks Broken with the
Hmm, which one do you suppose would be the less
Dangerous or not, I think it would be cool to be able
to look up your name in the index of the Guinness World
Records book. Although it would be utterly tragic if you'
were one of those people who were brave enough to
attempt a perilous act but didn't manage to break any
Gosh, could you imagine?
They probably feel like those poor souls on "Fear
Factor," who, after fishing goat eyeballs from a vat of un-
identified grey mush with their teeth, wind up losing the
I can just hear the announcer now: "I'm sorry, Gus,
you have been eliminated. You can go home now. Thanks
for participating. Oh, and be sure to wash your clothes
you've got a little sludge on your shirt."
Unfortunately, not everyone broke records Thursday.
Manjit Singh, an Ironman from the UK, suffered a personal
loss during Guinness World Records Day. He tried to win
the title of the "Fastest Time to Pull a Double-Decker Bus
with the Ears," but his valiant effort proved futile.
It's doubtful, however, that the 57-year-old daredevil
was heartbroken after his failed attempt because he's al-
ready in the record book. He earned a spot in April when
he managed to pull with his ears a 7.5-ton passenger
Some record-breaking attempts were successful. The
one that stuck out the most wasn't
the "Most Steel Cans Collected in
One Month" or "Most Jumps on
Stilts." It is much more unbeliev-
able than those.
On Wednesday, the Guinness
Colleen Shea World Records book awarded a
email@example.com New York City restaurant with the
Most Expensive Dessert after the
owner unveiled a $25,000 choco-
late sundae. $25,000! With that kind of money, you could
afford to buy your very own TCBY and eat an unlimited
amount of frozen yogurt forever.
Stephen Bruce, the culinary mastermind behind the
pricey dessert, calls it, "Frrozen Haute Chocolate."
His dessert is a chocolate sundae made from a mixture
of 28 exotic cocoas (14 of which are extremely hard to find),
infused with 23-karat edible gold and served in a goblet
lined in even more edible gold. The sundae is topped with
a lovely swirl of whipped cream that is then garnished
with even more yep, you guessed it edible gold.
Adding to the elegant dish, the base of the goblet is
surrounded by an 18-karat gold bracelet with one carat of
But wait, that's not all. There's one more thing that re-
ally separates this sundae from all the rest: This extremely
expensive desert includes a gold, diamond-encrusted
spoon that the patron is allowed to take home.
If you can't afford the Most Expensive Sundae, maybe
you could try to break the record for the time it takes to eat
it. They might let you keep the spoon.
Something tells me the few people (namely sultans and
gazillionares) who can actually afford this decadent treat
wouldn't be ecstatic about keeping the golden spoon as a
party favor, but hey I thought it was pretty cool.

Letters to the Editor
Graduate students authored bill of rights
* I was disappointed to read the Alligator
editorial board's antagonistic rant against
what graduate students have been fighting
for more than a year to achieve, the Graduate
Student Bill of Rights.
The board thinks the bill of rights is
"dumb" because it "duplicates" rights men-
tioned in the Student Body constitution. The
board notes the fact that these "duplicated"
rights have existed for some time but ignores
the unsettling truth that instances of bullying
have plagued far too many graduate stu-
dents, despite the existence of these rights.
The Graduate Student Council wrote the
bill of rights because bullying persists at our
university. Having a single document that
enumerates the rights of graduate students
and empowers those students to exercise
these rights is the best first step toward com-
The bill of rights contains 14 clauses and
enumerates nearly 30 basic rights, but the
editorial board mentioned only six clauses
as being redundant. Those clauses were writ-
ten to address problems not contemplated
by existing rules, as were the other 24 pro-
visions (e.g. the right to be recognized for
scholarly contributions, the right to academic
freedom, the right to decline tasks unrelated
to academic or professional development)
not mentioned in the editorial.
The bill of rights also contains a provision
on enforcement, which calls upon depart-
ments and colleges to set up grievance pro-
cedures. I guess the board skipped over that
I can't help but wonder whether the edito-
rial board trashed the bill of rights because it
viewed it as a project of the Gator Party and
We all know the Alligator will somehow
find a way to discount any good initiative
by SG. But here's a news flash: The bill of
rights was written by graduate students and
the Graduate Student Council. It must pass
through SG and several other governing bod-
ies before it is codified.
If you want to know the importance of the
Graduate Student Bill of Rights, ask a gradu-
ate student whose academic experience will
be positively affected by it.
After all, the students' opinions of the
bill of rights' importance matters, not the
unfounded opinion of the pessimistic media
that sometimes, as we've seen here, do more
to impede progress than they have ever done
to promote it.
president, Graduate Student Council
Bill of rights good for graduate students
The Alligator's editorial about the
Graduate Student Council's proposed
Graduate Student Bill of Rights pointed out
that many rights expressed are already in
place. However, I don't believe the aim of the
bill of rights is to create new rights.
Similar to the United States Bill of Rights,
the Graduate Student Bill of Rights provides
an ideal to appeal to. My work with Graduate
Assistants United has shown me that life is
isolating for many graduate students. It is
more so for international students suddenly
thrust into a new culture. While graduate
students are represented by SG, it focuses on
I don't understand why the Alligator
objects to students' rights being dearly ex-
pressed in the Graduate Student Handbook,
so abused students can know what recourse
they have. Bullying has long been a quiet
problem at UF, and the Graduate Student
Council is taking a step to combat it.

tremely wealthy and powerful politician.
Ride this person's coattails as long as you
can, regardless of what ethical morasses may
If issues of international law and human
rights abuses appear, ignore them or rational-
ize them away, regardless of the validity of
your argument. If running a company, fire
anyone who disagrees with these rationaliza-
tions or your powerful buddy.
If forced to fess up to knowing you made
decisions contrary to the U.S. Constitution or
international law, plead ignorance.
Resign (after irreparable damage to the in-
stitution you were working for was done and
the international reputation of your country
is in tatters).
Charge UF $40,000 so you can come speak
about how patriotic and civil you really are

Much has been made of the Gators facing the man

Donovan revamps after dramatic summer
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
As Gators coach Billy Donovan
walks down the stairs, each step
soundly resonates in the UF basket-
ball practice facility.
It seems business as usual for the
two-time defending national cham-
pion coach as he prepares to meet
and greet the media for the first time
in the young basketball season.
But hidden behind the normalcy
is the underlying thought and feel-
ings of all those involved, who, like
Donovan himself, realize just how
close he was to saying goodbye.
A mere five months ago, on an
ordinary Friday in June, Donovan
chose to follow most of the members
from the greatest team he's ever
coached and join them in the NBA.
The Orlando Magic offered him a
deal too good to resist five years,
$27.5 million and all the fame the
pro game could offer.
Donovan could stay close to
home. He could coach young talent
like Dwight Howard and Jameer
Nelson. He could even attempt to
outdo his mentor Louisville and
former Kentucky coach Rick Pitino,
whose brief stint with the Boston
Celtics ended in failure.
And perhaps it was Pitino's
experience that forced Donovan to
have second thoughts. Or maybe it
was just the chance to stay and mold
players before they forgot why they
play the game, before contracts and
commercials and all the money that
makes things complicated are thrust
The reason may never truly be
known to anyone but the coach
himself, but just 24 hours after sign-
ing his contract, Donovan called

was ready to move on.
"At this point I'm ready to just
leave that all behind," Donovan
said. "I've admitted before that I
made a mistake, and I couldn't be
happier than to be in Florida. It's
where my heart belongs and where I

stories arise, the tale of Donovan's
departure may soon begin to fade.

remains clear in their minds.
Freshman Jai Lucas, who was a
late recruit to UF, still badgers his
coach whenever he can.
"I was teasing him a little bit
because he had his Orlando Magic
tie on tonight," Lucas said after UF's
win against Lynn on Monday. "I told
him he had the wrong colors on. I
think he laughed about it."
Besides Lucas, there were other
players who were forced to hold
their breath as Donovan pondered
his future. Among them were fresh-
man Alex Tyus, another late commit
to the Gators, and current sopho-
mores Jonathan Mitchell, Marreese
Speights and Dan Werner, who were

Unproven Gators open season against giant killers
NDSU topped Wisconsin, Marquette in recent years
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
Leading up to the UF men's basketball team's season
opener, Coach Billy Donovan had some advice for his
young Gators team: Beware of North Dakota State.
"They are a really good basketball team, and this is as
hard of an opening game as we've had since I've been here,"
Donovan said. "Going into this it will be an unbelievable
challenge. It would be phenomenal win for our basketball
This warning from Donovan may force some to do a
double-take, but Donovan pointed out that Friday's game
against NDSU is not your typical opener.
The Bison return four starters from a team that went 20-
8, including a victory against a top-10 Marquette squad.
The year prior, NDSU went to Madison and toppled
then-No. 15 Wisconsin. Donovan said that overlooking the
Bison .iould not be a problem for the Gators, who unlike
last year's squad, have no expectations heading in.
"These kids haven't proved anything," he said. "These
guys haven't even won a game yet in college basketball."
The young squad, which features five scholarship fresh-
men and only four returning players, has Donovan still
unsure of what to expect.
"The only thing the same from last year to this
year is the same name on the front."
"We have Dan Werner, Jonathan Mitchell and Marreese
Speights, who have never been in a significant basketball
game with the game on the line. And then we have five
freshmen who have never been in a basketball game at all,"
he said. "So for us, I don't care if it's North Dakota State. I
don't care if it's Kansas. ... To me, we have to go out there
and play with a sense of urgency just to give us a chance to
win the game."
It's been so far so good for the Gators, as the freshmen
have impressed early on.
The Gators dominated Flagler College 97-51 and han-
dled Lynn 101-65 in the team's two exhibition games. All
five scholarship freshmen scored in double figures against
Flagler and combined to score 71 of the team's total points
One of UF's young players, freshman Nick Calathes, said
the two exhibition games are hard to judge. Calathes is ea-
gerly anticipating the start of the regular season, where he
thinks the team will face its first true test.
"They're really good," he said. "They beat Marquette
and Wisconsin. They kind of got screwed losing to Kansas
State. But they're a really good team, and they know how
The Gators will look to set a record in Friday's game. The
team is riding a 19-game home winning streak heading into
the contest, tied for the most all-time in UF history.
The record, however, belongs mainly to a group of
Gators who now play in the NBA. Sophomore Dan Werner,
who spent most of last season watching, said this year's
team has to form its own legacy.
"The only thing the same from last year to this year is the
same name on the front," Werner said.
