gathered to protest Kevorkian's speech, which was spon-

UF emergency text-message system passes test run
By KATIE SANDERS
UF's first attempt to alert students about
campus emergencies through text messag-
ing was successful, university officials said
Out of 44,000 students who provided
contact information to UF, more than 42,000
received the trial text on their cell phones
at about noon, said UF spokesman Steve
"Right now it's looking really good,"
Orlando said of the preliminary response. "It
appears right now that it was a good choice
to do this."
The text told recipients the message was
a "test of the UF emergency message sys-
tem" and directed students to the Office of
Information Technology's Web site if they
had any problems.
UF established the system in the wake of
the massacre at Virginia Tech in April, when
the school's officials were criticized for not
responding quickly enough to the shootings.
All UF students were required to update
their emergency contact information by Oct.
22. Mobile Campus, UF's text-messaging
provider, used students' provided cell phone
numbers to send the alert.
Billy Gower, an economics junior, was in
his constitutional history class at 12:16 p.m.
when he received the message.
"It was definitely convenient," he said.
"That's the best part about it."
However, Gower said, if there were a real
emergency he hopes to receive more informa-
tion in the text message, such as a safe loca-
tion or resources to call.
"It made me feel good that I'm
part of the loop."
UF biology senior
Orlando said UF has several prepared
messages for emergencies, but character
restrictions limit how much information the
text can include.
He said in an emergency, students could
visit the UF Web site or watch TV news re-
ports to learn more information after receiv-
ing an emergency text.
Omar Syed, a UF biology senior, said he
received his message at 12:19 p.m.
He thinks the text-messaging system is
the best way to get in touch with students in
"It made me feel good-that I'm part of the
loop," Syed said: "Sometimes you never get
phone calls, but you can get texts."
Orlando said students received the
message at different times because Mobile
Campus can only send 1,000 text messages
UF officials will meet today to review the
system's success, he said. UF plans to test the
system annually and will send non-emergen-
cy information through messages, too, such
as reminders about school holidays.

I GROUP GIVEN MORE TIME

The UF Supreme Court ruled
Tuesday that the Student Body con-
stitution's definition of days should
translate into calendar days instead
of school days. The former would
give the student group, Students for
Online Voting, or SOLVe, more time
to collect the signatures.
The group has until Jan. 29 to
submit its petition to the SG super-
visor of elections. The signatures
would have been due today if the
definition hadn't been clarified.
SOLVe has been collecting signa-
tures since November and has 4,000
The group needs signatures from
at least 10 percent of UF's student
body, which is roughly 5,000 stu-
dents, to secure a spot for the online-
voting amendment on the ballot for
SG elections Feb.
26 and 27.
GSvtudenment If a majority
of UF students
vote 'yes' on
the amendment, online voting will
become an SG standard.
Sam Miorelli, SOLVe's executive
director and a mechanical engineer-
ing junior, said the group will aim to
collect 1,000 more signatures than
the petition requires just in case.
Miorelli said he's confident the
dozen UF students collecting signa-
tures will reach the goal in time.
"The remarkable thing about it
is you've just got to tell people what
we're doing, and people are happy
and even eager to sign," he said.
Ryan Day, SG deputy chief of
staff, filled in for Sarah Krantz, SG
supervisor of elections, at the hear-
ing. Krantz was out of town.
Day said the supervisor of elec-
tions doesn't choose the petition
deadline, and Krantz announced
what she thought was the right date,
He said he thinks Tuesday's rul-
ing was based on a Florida Supreme
Court case ruling in the 1980s, which
featured conflict over the same
wording problem of "no later than"

tinues to rule on the issue based on
precedence, he said he doesn't think

Scam threatens UF inboxes
By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer
An identity theft scam circu-
lated through the UF GatorMail
inboxes of students, faculty and
The fraudulent e-mail asked
recipients to submit personal
information under the pretense
that the university was asking for
verification of their account.
The message asked recipients
for their e-mail username and
password, date of birth and other
Upon receiving the message,
Marc Hoit, interim chief informa-
tion officer, sent an e-mail to stu-
dents warning them of it.
Hoit stressed the importance
of the password, which allows
access to personal information,
registration and other processes
that should remain private.
"Your password is your first
defense for keeping all of that
information safe," Hoit said in a
phone interview. "Never respond
to anyone who asks for a pass-
"Anytime you see that mes-
sage, it should be a flag."

If students have responded to
the e-mail, they should log on to
GatorLink and change their pass-
words immediately, Hoit said.
If they cannot, they should
contact the UF Computing Help
Desk as soon as possible.
This particular attempt at iden-
tity theft is known as "phishing."
According to the UF Web site,
phishing is a type of scam in
which predators lure people to
fraudulent Web sites posing as
known, trustworthy sites. The
user's information is then taken
under false pretenses, usually
with the goal of financial gain.
The organizers of the scam are
being pursued, but there is little
chance that they will be found.
"They do all sorts of things that
make it very difficult to track,"
The message's subject line
read "VERIFY YOUR UFL EMAIL
ACCOUNT NOW" and claimed
to be from the "Ufl.edu Team."
Hoit learned of the e-mail
when he received one this morn-
ing. Students and staff also for-
warded the message to him as
they received it.
In the future, students and staff
members should always be suspi-
cious if an e-mail asks for secure
"The policy is that you never
share that with anyone, not even

Nearly 60 protesters come from around Florida
Draws mixed reaction
KEVORKIAN, from page 1
White people must learn to unite, Kevorkian added.
When he was booed as he derided various aspects of
the law, comparing the United States to Nazi Germany,
Kevorkian echoed the sounds of booing into his micro-
phone. At the end of his speech, the audience granted
him a standing ovation.
On During the question-and-answer ses-
Campus sion after his speech, Kevorkian said he
helped kill about one out of every five
patients who asked to die. The ones he
turned away didn't show enough medical evidence to
justify ending their lives, he said.
Katie Schweiss, an English senior and supporter of
Kevorkian, said she was surprised at the speech.
"That was insane," Schweiss said, laughing. "It was
not at all what I expected."
Kelly DeLucia, a UF business graduate student, said
she's not a-Kevorkian supporter, but she's not against
his ideas either.
"It was interesting to try to understand his thought
process and his belief system," DeLucia said.

The protest was mostly organized
by Pro-Life Alliance, a UF student
group traditionally known for its
anti-abortion stance, and members
of Gainesville churches and visitors
from Ocala and Orlando joined the
Besides disagreeing with
Kevorkian's message, Ben Burwell,
a UF sophomore and member of the
alliance, said he doesn't think his tu-
ition money should be used to host a
convicted murderer at UF.
"He is not a doctor, and I'm embar-
rassed that our school, which has such
a prestigious medical school, has in-
vited someone here who claims to be
a doctor but had his license revoked,"
Kevorkian was paid about $50,000
for his speech, and most of that money
came from UF students' Activity &
Mark Schrimsher, 51, drove from
Orlando to protest. He said he gradu-
ated from UF in 1979 and sent his four
children to his alma mater.
Schrimsher, the regional director
for the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform,
held up a 13-foot-by-6-foot banner to
show how he thought abortion and
euthanasia were connected.
The banner, almost as tall as
Schrimsher, featured a picture of an
aborted fetus with the words, "Don't
let kids ruin your career," next to a
large picture of Kevorkian and the
sentence, "Dorn't let parents ruin your

also paid to fly a plane above the
O'Connell Center waving a message
expressing, "Planned Parenthood kills
your babies; Dr. Kevorkian kills your
parents," he said.
Schrimsher said he talked to some
people who planned to listen to
Kevorkian, but no one was rude or
offensive while he protested.
One man he talked with flew from
California to see Kevorkian, an event
the man described, as "about as im-
portant as seeing the shuttle lift off,"
He said another memorable char-
acter was a man imitating protesters.
Richard Adams,. an O'Connell
Center supervisor who was in charge
of the protest zone, said the man he
dubbed "the anti-protesting protest-
er" was his only out-of-the-ordinary
sighting that night.
"He was screaming about freeing
Nelson Mandela, stopping apartheid
and saving the whales," Adams said.
At one point, he said the lone anti-
protester's message turned from sav-
ing the whales to shaving them.
Ronnie Morrison, 77, said she
didn't notice any people outside the
protest zone shouting comments. But
she said she wasn't surprised at that
behavior. Morrison said she didn't un-
derstand how anyone could support
Kevorkian's actions, which she said
are dearly wrong.
"I'm against murder,"
Morrison said. "I believe in the Ten
Commandments. One of them says,
'Do not kill.'"

In one instance, a student body president prepared a slide
show about it.
And just about every time we think we might get closer to
what the majority of UF students have wanted for years, it's
shot down before it even gets to the Student Senate floor.
So what is this elusive controversy that always gets SG so
And it's back. So, get ready to hear more of the same.
On Tuesday, the UF Supreme Court ruled that Students
for Online Voting, or SOLVe, a group collecting signatures
to amend the UF Student Body constitution, did not actu-
ally exceed the time needed to collect the required number
The group now has about two more weeks to submit its

Everyone makes mistakes.
But given the history of this issue, we're really not that
In 2005, a petition signed by more than 1,000 students in
favor of placing online voting on the ballot was denied by the
SG Supreme Court, which convened in a secret meeting.
And while Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski later in-
validated the court's decision, citing a possible violation of
Florida's open meetings laws by the court, the issue of online
voting was still noticeably absent from the spring ballot.
You would think that SG would just concede the fact that
the majority of students would prefer to vote in the comfort
of their own homes and in their underwear if they so
choose through the secure GatorLink system.
You would also think that they would want to implement
the cost-efficient voting method as soon as possible to get
more students involved in the whole electoral process.
Well, you would be wrong,
Despite all the lip service that has been devoted toward
making SG more accessible to the student body at large, we
can't help but suspect that there is an ulterior motive behind
stopping online voting in its tracks.
And it has nothing to do with maintaining consistency
with legal precedence, which was the explanation offered by
Ryan Day, SG's deputy chief of staff, on Tuesday.
As it turns out, we only have to look across town to see
why so many in SG are vehemently opposed to online voting
and why they are doing nothing tangible to see it become a
reality besides bickering over semantics.
In spring 2001, SFCC students started using the electronic
method of voting. Not only have they been ahead of us for
years, but their voter turnout more than doubled from 400 to
812 the first time online voting was used.
While SFCC has nowhere near the amount of students as
UF, we'd venture to say that a similar success could easily
take place here.
Maybe that's what those in control of SG are so afraid of.

President" to call for full-scale military action.
Hmm, "Strait of Hormuz" kind of reminds you of "Gulf
of Tonkin," doesn't it? That is, if you were paying attention
For those who were too busy doing crosswords, the "in-
cident" occurring in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964 propelled the
U.S. into the Vietnam War or at least escalated it.
It is now believed, however, that the incident probably
did not occur as it was then reported, and in all likelihood,
Joshua the Johnson administration pro-
Frederickson voked the skirmish to justify going
firstname.lastname@example.org to war.
Back to 2008.
The news networks feverishly
replayed video footage released by the Navy that showed
Iranian speedboats darting around American warships. The
climax of the footage was an audio transmission, ostensibly
coming from one of the speedboats, giving an ominous ad-
monition: "I am coming to you. You will explode after a few
, The President called the incident a "provocative act" that
reaffirmed the threat Iran poses to not only national security,
but world security.
Fearmongers read: neo-conservatives everywhere
- seized on the incident in the Strait of Hormuz in an attempt
to restart the drumbeat to war, which had been halted by the
recent national intelligence estimate that indicated Iran had
stopped seeking to develop nuclear weapons in 2003.
Not so fast. At the end of last week, Iran released its own
video footage of the events, which rendered a very different
picture. Iran claims the American footage is doctored, and
even Pentagon officials say they are unsure as to whether the
threatening transmission came from the speedboats or some-
where else. They say that those who fail to learn from history
are doomed to repeat it. It would be wise to be suspicious of
the incessant saber-rattling coming from Bush.
The gravity of this episode seemed to be lost amid the
horse race of the primary season of election '08, as pundits
and observers paid more attention to poll numbers and the
results in Iowa and New Hampshire. We must not be lulled
into apathy by President Bush's lame-duck status. One year
is still plenty of time to cause irreparable damage to our
nation's already frayed security.

Letter to the Editor
Text message notice raises concerns
The announcement of the new emergency text
message system stated that "because cell phone
numbers provided will be used only in the event
of an emergency, they will be kept private and are
exempt from Florida's public records laws."
Why then was there a notice in Tuesday's text
to see the Mobile Campus Web site for more infor-
mation? This is concerning.
We already receive enough advertising due to
public records laws. Our phone numbers were
supposed to be private and UF has breached this
by providing them to Mobile Campus. Even if they
have promised not to use the information for other
purposes, I still question the legality and ethics of
Second, if this system is run through Mobile
Campus, what happens in the event of a real emer-
gency? I doubt that the security needed for a po-
tentially life-saving system is in place in a program
previously used to send pizza coupons.
While a real emergency text might not be
"sponsored" by Mobile Campus, UF has already
left doubt as to where this information would be
posted in a real emergency

Frangulyan coming off big tourney win in Vegas
Post matchup key to game
HOOPS, from page 16
Gators struggling to survive in a hostile environment, Lucas hit
a 3-pointer right before the first-half buzzer sounded, bringing
his team to within seven and giving UF some much-needed
Lucas was also responsible for the shot that gave the Gators
their first lead at 61-59 and again at 63-61. Against Auburn, he
poured in 7 of the team's final 9 points and hit several baskets
as the shot dock neared expiration.
Lucas and the Gators will undoubtedly face their biggest
challenge yet in the Rebels, whose only loss came on the road
to a sixth-ranked Tennessee squad many con-
sider to be the strongest in the conference.
"This is a team that is unquestionably one
of the best in the SEC," Donovan said. "They
Men's were a team last year that really started to
Basketball surge and get some great wins.... It's a tough
place to play, and it should be another great
challenge for our guys."
The biggest concern for Donovan is on the front line, where
the Rebels boast a talented and experienced group of players
led by senior center Dwayne Curtis, who is averaging 14.9
points and 8.2 rebounds per game.
"Perhaps more so than any other team, they have incred-
ible frontcourt players that are experienced, athletic and could
score," Donovan said. "It's going to be a collective, difficult,
hard challenge for our guys to rebound the basketball."
Leading the way for Mississippi is Orlando product Chris
Warren, who is contributing almost 16 points per game in his
freshman season. UF will also face former Gators guard David
Huertas, who transferred after the 2005-06 season.
The Gators should be at relatively full strength, with some
speculation, still surrounding forward Dan Werner and his sta-
tus for the game.
Donovan said he expects Werner to play but is taking
things day-to-day in practice. Werner sprained his foot against
Alabama, but played 30 minutes off the bench against Auburn
and managed to score 11 points.

Donovan cites competitive nature as stumbling block
NOAH, from page 16
(once by the coaches, once by a unanimous team vote)
for his practice tirade directed at assistant coach Ron
Adams. Noah made it into the game with 2:54 left
in the first quarter to a dash of applause and a pinch of
boos and played more spirited than any other Bull.
That's not saying much though, as Coach Jim Boylan
called his team's play uninspired after the game.
And that was a kind analysis.
Noah's perceived troubles are part self-inflicted but
part scapegoat, too. The Bulls are 14-22 and one of the
biggest disappointments of the early season. They made
the conference semifinals last season but are a ways
away from sniffing the playoffs right now. Coach Scott
Skiles got fired after the slow start, and Boylan is now
trying to piece together the rest of the season.
A team wrought with a recent winning tradition is
far from figuring things out. But one man can pin down
Noah's troubles, for what it's worth.
"I know what Jo's biggest problem is," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "Jo's biggest problem is Jo just wants to
win, and when he sees things that are getting in the
way of winning, Jo has a tendency to maybe become
somewhat demonstrative or loud or speak his opinion.
I will never believe that his suspension has anything to
do with him being selfish. If anything, it has to do with
him wanting to win."
If Chicago keeps losing, Bulls fans will begin to whis-
per "bust" when referring to Tyrus Thomas and Noah,
whom the team may have taken at No. 2 in the' 2006
draft. His perception as a high-energy, hustle guy would
make him a fan favorite in most cities (like Noah-done
Anderson Varejao in Cleveland), but not in Chicago.
Noah needs to affect'winning, not stand from a
Wrigleyville rooftop during a Cubs game, cheering for
the opposing team. Noah needs to produce like a top-
10 pick, not bring in Dunkin' Donuts for Bulls veterans
when he was supposed to grab Krispy Kremes.
He started his climb back into the team's good graces
in Orlando, as his coach offered some praise.
"Hopefully, it was a learning experience for every-
body," Boylan said of the suspension. "I was proud of
the way Jo took the punishment."
Now if Noah can just get Jordan on his good side.

"I think they enjoy playing
together," he said. "I think -hat
they're happy that they get the op-
portunity to play together again,
and we'll probably see some en-
ergy from that team tomorrow."
Thornqvist said the best thing
about the seniors is the experience
they bring to each match.
"They've played together
enough to where they can sorfof
run things on their own," he said.
"That's a great advantage to have
in a big match."

Chicago Bulls forward
By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
The time has finally arrived for the UF
women's tennis team.
The No. 4 Gators begin their dual-match
season Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at the Ring
Tennis Complex against in-state opponent
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said the
Gators are looking forward to playing in a
dual match, their-first since May 20 when
they fell to UCLA in the NCAA Tournament
Now the team is just excited to get started
again, no matter who the opponent is.
"Stetson is a really good team," Thomqvist
said. "I think we all-know that we're better.
There are a few things with
this match above and beyond
the result of the match that are
i of importance for us, and those
ITennis are the things I think we're go-
ing to ultimately focus on."
Thomrnqvist said his team will be faced with
a couple of early-season issues, including
figuring out who will be paired together for
doubles play as well as getting two newcom-
ers used to dual-match play. But he said both
of these matters are good dilemmas to have.
"A lot of those pleasant problems that we
haven't had in years past, we do have this year
with eight eligible players," he said. "So the
more we play, the merrier."
One of the new additions is freshman Julia
Cohen, a much-accomplished junior player
who enrolled at UF this month.
Thornqvist said Cohen played in a tourna-
ment in Arizona on Tuesday, and the outcome
SEE TENNIS, PAGE 15
The exuberant former UF star devel-
oped a knack for tardiness at practices,
struggled to learn the playbook and, most
notably, ruffled feathers after a heated ex-
change with an assistant coach last week.
Outsiders wonder just what he learned,
if anything, in three years at UF.
Noah addressed his tumultuous rookie
season after Tuesday night's 102-88 loss to
the Orlando Magic.
"I miss it, I miss Florida," said Noah,
who scored 12 points and grabbed 11 re-
bounds in 23 minutes off the bench for his
first career double-double in his first game
action in a week. "The toughest adjustment
is losing. I've never really lost like that
before in my life. Of course sitting is hard.
I'm not getting a lot of playing time on a
consistent basis. But at the same time, those
aren't things that I can control."
Noah averaged 4 points and three re-
bounds in 12 minutes per game entering
Tuesday. He hoped to see the floor for the
first time since being suspended two games
