Court: UF must recognize Christian frat


* ORDER WILL STAND UNTIL
ONGOING LAWSUIT IS RESOLVED.

A federal appeals court ordered UF of-
ficials Wednesday to recognize a fraternity
that requires its members to be Christian.
Beta Upsilon Chi, also known as
Brothers Under Christ, filed a lawsuit
against UF last year after it was denied


official student organization status be-
cause university rules prohibit religious
discrimination.
While the discrimination lawsuit filed
by the fraternity moves forward in court,
judges from the 11th U.S. Circuit in Atlanta
issued an injunction ordering the school to
officially acknowledge the Betas.
The Alligator was unable to reach the
fraternity members and their lawyer, Tim


Tracey, who works for the Center for Law
and Religious Freedom of the Christian
Legal Society, by press time.
Tracey said in a July 2007
Greek Alligator interview that it is only
Life natural for a Christian group to
seek Christian members.
Recognition of the organization will
allow it to receive funding from Student
Government, use the school's facilities


and advertise on campus.
Other on-campus, faith-based clubs do
not exclude students who practice other
religions.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando could
also not be reached for comment by press
time.
The Associated Press contributed to this
report.

UF gyms to get hand scanners


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF Students have mixed re-
views for technology that will soon
require them to scan their hands
before entering campus gyms.
David Bowles, director of
Recreational Sports at UF, said
installing hand scanners in cam-
pus gyms will eliminate the need
for students to bring their Gator 1
Cards along for their workouts.
David Stopka, UF's associate


director for. facility operations,
said the scanning system will cost
between $35,000 and $50,000 at
each fitness location.
Stopka said he's not sure yet
where the money will come from,
but UF may decide
On to delay resurfacing
Campus some tennis courts
in order to cover the
cost of the scanners.
The scanners will be installed in
the lobby of the Student Recreation
and Fitness Center in September,


Bowles said.
Students will be required to
scan their hands in order to gain
access to the rest of the building
and will have to enter their UFID'
numbers as well,.he said.
There are plans to install the
scanners at Southwest Recreation
Center, but that could be post-
poned until spring 2011 because of
the gym's renovations, he said.

U.S. gets more


keen on green

This story is the first in a three-part series on the trend
of "going green." Today's story focuses on the history of
the environmental movement and its impact on society.

By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Writer

To a growing number of Americans, green is more than
just a color: It's a way of life.
The "going green" movement is unavoidable, from
organic cotton clothing to small statements at the end of
e-mails advising readers to think before
wasting paper by printing.
Products on shelves wear earth-
friendly badges like marks of honor, and
their price tags sometimes reflect the
same elevated sense of value.
Consumers are ditching their gas-
guzzling vehicles and opting for more
Delfino gas-efficient hybrid cars.
But how the "green" trend came to be
pervasive in American homes is sometimes missed amid
the hype.
Joseph Delfino, UF professor of environmental engi-
neering sciences, said awareness really began in the 1960s
following the publication of Rachel Carson's book about
the negative effects of pesticides and other chemicals on
the environment, "Silent Spring."
He pointed to recent pictures of the smog-filled
skies over Beijing, China's capital and home of the 2008
Olympics, as an example of what several American cities
looked like before the Clean Air Act, originally passed in
1963.
Increased energy use by developing nations, like China,

UF PROJECTS

Construction targets leaks


By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Construction between UF's Marston
Science Library and Computer Science
and Engineering buildings will soon bring
an end to leaks that have plagued rooms
beneath the bisecting plaza for about 20
years.
UF's Physical Plant Division is oversee-
ing a $405,000 project to find the cause of
the leaks and protect the plaza's lower level
against further water damage by replacing
and repairing the infrastructure, said proj-
ect manager Chandler Rozear.
The project, expected to wrap up in
November, will be split into three phases
so the surrounding buildings are still acces-
sible, Rozear said.
He said the first phase, which began
this week and should finish before the fall
semester, involves demolition of the plaza
walkway between the buildings in order to
reach the rooms below.
Because the jackhammer used to break
up the plaza caused such a disturbance,
the crew has been working from 4 a.m. to


8 a.m. and clearing the debris during the
day, he said.
Denise Bennett, a librarian at Marston,
said water has leaked into the Map and
Imagery Library on the first floor of
Marston since it opened in 1987, which
she said suggests a flaw in the building's
design. Bennett said the Physical Plant had
implemented "some Band-Aid approach-
es" over the years to plug the leaks, such as
gutters and caulking, but they continued to
be a problem.
"What they're doing now is the
equivalent of surgery."
Denise Bennett
Marston librarian

"What they're doing now is the equiva-
lent of surgery," she said.
Carol McAuliffe, head of the Map and
Imagery Library, said the library will con-
tinue to provide access to its 500,000 maps,
although they will be relocated.
"There shouldn't be too much change for
patrons," McAuliffe said.


DMV coming to campus


By ASHLEY SCOTT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Soon UF students will no longer
have to endure hours of long lines
to get driver's licenses or identifica-
tion cards.
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
will offer driver's license services at
UF from Aug. 11 through Sept. 4.
The department will be able to
print tag renewals and handicapped
placards as well as driver's licenses
and ID cards from a mobile Mini-
Flow unit, said Maureen Johnson,
the department's chief of field ser-
vices.
The Mini-Flow unit is a portable
shelter used by the department that
can be brought into a building and
unfolded into temporary counters.
The unit will be located in the
UF Bookstore and Welcome Center
on the plaza level from 10 a.m. to


3 p.m.
Written tests will be administered
for driver's licenses, and individu-
als can schedule an appointment, to
take a driving performance test.
People looking to transfer an out-
of-state license to a Florida license
will be able to do so. Also, people
will be able to replace a
On lost or stolen license.
Campus UF and the depart-
ment are considering
offering the service
annually, Johnson said. A similar
unit had been set up at Florida State
University, and it had a lot of traffic
and positive feedback, she said.
UF officials thought people
would appreciate the extra conve-
nience of not having to travel for
these services, she said.
"We specifically thought of
our international and out-of-state
students who need local identifica-
tion," Johnson said.

Pets to be pampered at new Gainesville resort


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Imagine lounging across a plush
bed in a private, climate-controlled
room, lazily watching a favorite
movie on a flat-screen TV and wait-
ing for a fresh supply of doggie ice
cream.
Yes, doggie ice cream. It comes
in either peanut butter or berry
flavor, and it's a favorite at luxury
pet resorts like the one opening in
Gainesville next month.
Pet Paradise Resort, a company
that operates top-of-the-line board-
ing facilities for cats and dogs,
will open for business at 19518 W.
Newberry Road in mid-August,
said company public relations rep-
resentative Kate Perkins.
The resort is just one of the com-
pany's eight facilities in Florida,
and Perkins said it's part of a larger,
seemingly recession-resistant mar-
ket.
"People are still spending any
amount of money on their pets,"
she said. "They don't want to
skimp on their babies, even in this
economy."
According to data from
the American Pet Products
Manufacturing Association, U.S.
consumers spent $41.2 billion on
pets, in 2007. That number is esti-
mated to increase by about $2 bil-


lion this year.
Gainesville's new pet resort,
which took about six months to
build, will feature 124 dog "suites"
and 20 cat "condos," Perkins said.
Local pet owners can choose to
board their cat or dog at the facility
if they leave town or use the resort's
day care services while at work.
Martin Coolican, director of
marketing and public relations at
Pet Paradise, said suites for dogs
staying overnight have an indoor
and outdoor section.
"People are still spending
any amount of money on
their pets."
Kate Perkin
Pet Paradise Resort
public relations representative

The rooms, regularly priced at
$30, are equipped with refilling wa-
ter bowls to ensure no guests ever
go thirsty, Coolican said.
Accommodations for cats are
cheaper at $22 a night.
Soothing music plays through
the six-level, private cat condos to
simulate a spa-like atmosphere.
Pet owners can also book one of
15 special suites overlooked by we-
bcams so they can peek in on their
animals at any time.
"This is not just a kennel,"


rnolo provioea oy hatw rermni
An exclusive five-star resort-style pet boarding and day care facility, like the one pictured here, will be opening
soon in Gainesville. The facility will offer a bone-shaped swimming pool, veterinary services and a spa.


Coolican said. "We are offering
luxury."
One optional luxury. is the
resort's $65-per-night presidential
suite, which is furnished with a
flat-screen TV for canine viewing
pleasure. Owners at other resorts


often provide their dog's favorite
movie, Coolican said.
Popular films include
"Homeward Bound" and "Lassie,"
he said. Otherwise, the TV is set to
Animal Planet.
The resort also offers a bone-


shaped swimming pool, prime
grooming and veterinary services.
Coolican said Gainesville resi-
dents are already reserving spots
for their pets at the facility.
He declined to reveal how much
it cost to build the facility.


UF ACADEMICS

Textbook law proves challenging for local bookstores


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

Some local bookstores think that when
it comes to solving the problem of textbook
affordability, the Florida Legislature is not on
the right page.
A state law that went into effect July 1
requires professors to provide textbook ISBN
numbers 30 days before the first day of class,
giving students time to find the best deals.
Friday was the deadline to post informa-
tion for the fall semester.
But -Tom Rider, an owner of Goerings
Book Store, said he thinks the new law will
make it harder for students to find books lo-
cally, let alone pay for them.
Rider said UF has interpreted the law to
mean that professors have to post textbook
information on the university's Web site,
which alerts all bookstores of professors'
requests and posts the information on ISIS
for students.


In the past, Rider said, professors would
place orders with his store and tell students to
buy their books there, which let Rider know
how many books to order.
Rider said now that all stores can see the
orders on the Web site, there is no telling
which stores students will choose and there-
foreno way to know how many books he, or
his competitors, should order.
He cannot communicate with other stores
either because he could be accused of making
illegal agreements, he said.
He said he will not place full orders for
professors who post information on the UF
Web site.
Provost Joe Glover wrote that UF policy
has historically been to use the UF Web site
to post information, and that will continue to
be the policy.
Ken Roberts, president of Orange and
Blue Textbooks, said the changes will affect
upper-division courses that have small class
sizes most because their books are often hard


to find.
Bookstores spend a lot of time getting
those orders in, Roberts said, but because so
few students use those books and there is no
guarantee where students will spend their
money, it is no longer in the interest of stores
to find those rare books.
"Those books can't be
found online, so those kids
are screwed," he said.
Roberts, Rider and
Lynne Vaughn, director
of the UF Bookstore, said
if legislators wanted to
Glover lighten the burden on stu-
dents' wallets, they would
have regulated packages that force students
to buy unnecessary materials.
Those packages often include Internet
access codes to online programs that expire
every semester, meaning stores can't buy the
books back and students are forced to buy
new editions, Roberts said.


"No one has the nerve to dig into the mar-
row of the problem, so it's. not going to be
solved," he said.
About 26 percent of class sections do not
have textbook information listed yet, accord-
ing to the UF textbook affordability Web site.
Glover wrote in an e-mail that some pro-
fessors probably haven't heard about the new
law.
Professors who have not posted their
information will be reminded in the fall, he
wrote.
The law will be enforced by UF in the
spring, he wrote, but the penalty has not been
decided.
UF history professor Steven Noll posted
his textbook information on Goerings' Web
site.
He said he has a good relationship with
the store, and he won't post information on
the UF Web site.
"If I do that, it will give all the other book
sellers access to what I'm using," Noll said.


Dining halls go trayless in effort to save food, water

UF professor applies for spot on Fla. Supreme Court


By KRISTEN HUFF

Career day may soon get a
little more interesting for Vickey
Broussard Willis' students at Oak

Last week, her husband, UF

"My wife teaches government,

said. "I don't argue a case; I pres-
ent both sides."
The court would also benefit
from his tax accounting and fi-
nance background specialties
that don't have enough of a pres-

Willis is no stranger to stand-
ing out.
He said of about 60 tenured
faculty members in the Levin
College of Law, he is one of two
Republicans.
"None of the law faculty
supported us, and this is

"That is one of the most signifi-
cant parts of my job, and it is very
lonely," he said.
Willis said his political affilia-
tion is "highly unusual" at a law
school.
He said he has been ridiculed
because of it, but he has stood by
his convictions.
He proved this last year when
the Law School Republicans, of
which he is the faculty advisor,
sponsored a screening of the film
"Obsession: Radical Islam's War
Against the West."
The screening was advertised
with the headline "Radical Islam
Wants You Dead!" In response, UF
Vice President for Student Affairs


Patricia Telles-Irvin sent an e-
mail to all students encouraging
the sponsors of the screening to
apologize because some students
found it offensive.
Willis and the student or-
ganization argued this was an
infringement on free speech and
were eventually able to get the
administration to retract the state-
ment.
"None of the law faculty sup-
ported us, and this ,is free speech,"
he said.
In mid-August, Willis and the
49 other applicants will have an
interview with a nine-member
committee in Tampa.
The committee will then sub-
mit a list of recommendations to
Gov. Charlie Crist, who will have
the final say.
If he is chosen for the job,
Willis said he plans to keep his UF
position because he will only be in
Tallahassee for about a week each
month and every Wednesday.
He said he wants to be able
to say he has taught at UF for
50 years. He has been here since
1981.
"Tenure at a university is a very
important thing, and I wouldn't
give that up lightly," he said.
Willis said he doesn't have any
connections to the governor, but
that doesn't worry him.
"Judicial nominations are sup-
posed to be merit-based. I think
this governor is looking for qual-
ity," he said.

Editorial
The final countdown has begun. One week until summer
break. The beginning of the end of summer classes means that
tailgating and tackle football are on the horizon. And while we
at the Department of Darts and Laurels can't wait to see Tebow
and Co. run all over the "competition," we're determined to
conclude the summer with the patented satirical smack-
downs that you've come to expect from these pages. As sum-
mer classes wind down to a close, we hope you've enjoyed the
summer edition of what has become something of an institu-
tion (no, we're not presumptuous at all) in The Gator Nation.
We thank you for humoring us as we've offered scathing
indignation and effusive gratitude, not usually in equal por-
tions, in reaction to the news of the week. So without further
ado, we offer the second-to-last summer installment of...



Darts & Laurels
First and foremost, we throw a George-Orwell-is-turning-
over-in-his-grave DART to the Department of Recreational
Sports for their planned installation of biometric "hand scan-
ners" at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center. The pur-
pose of the proposal is to make it easier for students to access
the center while ensuring that former students are prevented
from using the facility If the estimated $50,000 cost of the "Big
Brother" technology wasn't bad enough, the software presents
serious questions regarding personal privacy and the extent to
which we should allow technology to take over our lives in the
name of convenience.
Doesn't anyone remember the lessons of the "Terminator"
movies, let alone Orwell's classic dystopian novel "1984?"
Next up, we send an as-if-we-needed-any-further-evidence-
that-change-must-come-to-Washington-in-November DART
to Sen. Ted "Tubes" Stevens, the longest serving GOP senator
in history, for allegedly taking bribes from an oil company and
making false statements about doing so. Stevens, affectionately
known as "Tubes" for his incoherent, uninformed and hilari-
ous discussion of the nuts and bolts of the "Internets" during
the Net neutrality debate a couple of years back (continuously
referring to the Internet as "a series of tubes"), was indicted this
week on seven felony counts of making false statements (i.e. ly-
ing). Should he be convicted, each count carries up to five years
in prison.
Stevens claims he's innocent, and he is until proven guilty.
But all. the preliminary evidence strongly suggests that the
champion of the "bridge to nowhere" could be headed to the
big house unless President Bush commutes him.
Now to the heroes.
In these times of economic tribulation, every little bit counts.
It's with this in mind that we bestow a way-to-modestly-take-
care-of-the-faculty-and-staff-you-didn't-fire LAUREL to UF
President Bernie Machen for doling out small raises (2 percent
or up to $600) to faculty and staff. The faculty has greeted the
salary augmentation with ambivalence due in large part, no
doubt, to the discouraging economic trends facing the univer-
sity. But hey, it sure beats receiving a pink slip, doesn't it?
On a related note, we offer an A-for-effort LAUREL to the
Florida Board of Governors for its ambitious new plan to ask
the Legislature to appropriate $56.8 billion for new hires at the
state's 11 public universities. By "ambitious," we of course mean
"delusional." If the BOG thinks that the supremely incompetent
state Legislature is going to find that kind of money when
there's more pressing issues to address, like say, the banning of
Truck Nutz, then they should have their heads examined. But
we thank them for their effort nonetheless.
Finally, we offer a don't-be-a-hater-party-like-a-Gator
LAUREL to all of our fellow UF students for making Gainesville
the home of America's No. I party school. Princeton Review has
announced that UF is the nation's top party school for the first
time in the 17-year history of its annual collegiate survey. We
in the sea of Orange and Blue strive to be the best in all we do.
We're just as serious about our studies as we are about our so-
cial lives. But as long as budget cuts and administrative bone-
headedness stand in the way of national academic recognition,
we'll take the title of College Party Station, U.S.A.

Cover Florida won't
here are 3.7 million Floridians without health insur-
ance. That means if you are under the age of 65, there's
about a 1 in 4 chance that a serious illness would drive
you into bankruptcy. But fear not Gov. Charlie Crist has
a plan. He calls it Cover Florida, and with it, he hopes to
reduce the number of uninsured by offering them affordable
premiums.
Insurance agencies that wish to participate in the program
cannot deny coverage to anyone under the age of 65 who has
been uninsured for at least six months. In return for this con-
cession, insurance companies are not subject to Florida laws,
which mandate that certain services be covered. Instead, the
plans are only required to have very basic features. Each
company must offer a plan for normal medical visits as well
as a plan providing catastrophic coverage. Crist has said he
hopes these plans will cost about $150 a month.
While this might all sound good on paper, in reality,
Cover Florida is neither novel nor feasible.
From a public policy perspective, it's doomed for disaster.
Similar plans have failed in seven other states as well as in
Florida, where it has operated under the name Health Flex.
Cover Florida is essentially the same program as Health Flex
except that it's available to everyone under 65, not just those
with an income well below the Federal Poverty Level.
Aside from having notoriously low enrollment, these
types of plans are dangerous to our health care and finan-
cial security. If you opt for the catastrophic coverage, you're
probably going to forego preventative care a crucial fac-
tor in maintaining your own health and controlling public
health care costs. If you go for one of the normal plans,
you're likely to face high out-of-pocket co-payment costs
and deductibles. Numerous studies have shown these types
of plans force people to skip needed medical treatment.
Also, if people without catastrophic coverage have some
sort of severe health event, they're going to be responsible
for those costs. Health-related debts are already responsible
for half of all bankruptcies, and about 75 percent of those


cover Floridians
filing had insurance when they got -
sick. As such, Cover Florida gives
people a' false sense of security while
exposing them to serious health and
financial risks.
Worse yet, since these plans don't
Brandon Sack have to coversuch things as anti-psy-
chotic drugs and cancer, they aren't
letters@alligator.org likely to cover them. In fact, if you
want cancer coverage, you'll have to
purchase that separately, which is nice if you are blessed with
visions ofthe future to predict if you'll get cancer, but it's just
too bad for the other 100,000 Floridians diagnosed with this
vicious disease every year. And while these insurance plans
can't deny anyone outright, they can still refuse to cover any
chronic disorders, such as sickle cell anemia.
Despite all these pitfalls, there is one glaring reason Cover
Florida will fail: Almost two-thirds of Florida's uninsured
earn less than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. These
folks are unlikely to have $150 a month, especially for an in-
surance plan that doesn't provide sufficient coverage.
But Cover Florida is more than just bad policy;it's down-
right sinister. Plans like these perpetuate the idea that the
working class doesn't deserve quality health care. The main
purveyors of this thinking are elected officials, such as Crist,
who have fantastic taxpayer-subsidized health care and
enough personal wealth to pay for any premiums or other
fees. Perhaps if they used the same broken medical system
the rest of us do, there would be more impetus for reform.
Instead, we get the same stale ideas that prop up a tiered
health care system based on wealth. It's time to stop this. We
need a sustainable system that gives everyone equal access
to our world-class physicians and facilities. We need health
care that doesn't pit profits against human health. We need
single-payer health care, and we need it now.

Letters to the Editor
Fla. House Speaker responds to editorial
Your recent editorial regarding my new
assignment misstated and omitted a number
of important facts.
First, the budget cuts to universities are
the result of the worst budget conditions
in our state's history. It was not as if the
Legislature decided to spend the money on
other things. We did not have the money. In
fact, we had over $5 billion less than the pre-
vious year. That was the result of a massive
drop-off in sales tax collections, which is
the result of a general economic downturn.
The only -way to avoid reducing spending
on universities would have been either a
dramatic increase in tuition something
you would have also editorialized against
- or an increase in taxes something
that would have devastated our already-
troubled economy.
Second, my primary assignment at
Florida International University will be to
work at the Metropolitan Center, an institute
affiliated with the school. My salary will be
largely paid for by private funds, which I
will help raise.
The center is involved in the develop-
ment of public policy ideas. Everyone at the
institute must also have an academic com-
ponent. I chose to teach Florida politics.
Finally, as for my qualifications, you
missed the mark. You erroneously wrote
that I do not have an advanced degree. I
graduated with honors from the University
of Miami School of Law with a Juris Doctor
degree. Furthermore, I served in the Florida
Legislature for nine years: two as Majority
Whip, two as Majority Leader and two as
Speaker of the House. At a minimum, I
would think that this would qualify me to


teach about Florida politics.
It is obvious that much of what you wrote
in your editorial was based on news reports
by the Miami Herald. Doing so was a dis-
service to your readers.

Florida House Speaker


Deregulation threatens democracy
A recent letter to the editor by Kyle
Morgan made outrageous claims about eco-
nomic regulation. Mr. Morgan obviously has
a very tenuous hold on reality if he thinks
that more deregulation is the answer to our
economic woes when in fact, the opposite is
true.
Deregulation, privatization and the
growing regressive nature of our tax system
are three of the most damaging trends to the
overall economic stability and health of the
U.S.
The perfect example of this is when
economists of Milton Friedman's "Chicago
School" were allowed by the Chilean gov-
ernment to bring their utopian ideas into
real practice on a nationwide scale when
elements of the U.S. government over-
threw the democratically elected President
Salvador Allende in 1973.
At the time, unemployment was a mod-
est 4.3 percent, and the poverty rate was
about 20 percent. They rewrote Chilean law
to abolish the minimum wage, outlaw trade
unions, slash public employment, privatize
pensions and abolish taxes on wealth and
business profits. Any of this starting to
sound familiar?
Within a decade, the unemployment rate


had risen to 22 percent, the poverty rate had
doubled to about 40 percent, and real wages
for workers had declined by 40 percent.
These are the real effects of laissez-faire eco-
nomic policy. Instead of supporting political
democracy as the Friedmans of the world
claim, it undermines the very foundation of
democracy itself the power of the people
to determine their own future.

Media not biased in favor of Obama
If one goes by the adage "all press is good
press," then Mr. Simmons' column is correct:
Sen. Barack Obama has been receiving more
media coverage than Sen. John McCain since
the end of the primary season.
However, the Center for Media and
Public Affairs released a study this week
showing that since the close of the prima-
ries, there has been more negative commen-
tary about Obama than McCain.
On-air opinions concerning Obama were
72 percent negative while opinions about
McCain were 57 percent negative. The talk-
ing-head attacks about the Obama-press-
love meme began last week while Obama
was overseas meeting with the heads of
other nations and addressing a crowd of
more than 200,000 in Berlin.
Meanwhile, McCain was addressing a
crowd of two in a grocery store and feeling
"a little left out." Which is more newswor-
thy, a cleanup on aisle four (if you haven't
seen the video of McCain's brush with
applesauce, you should definitely Google it)

Savage comments taken out of context
This is in regard to the Dart handed out
to conservative radio talk show host Michael
Savage in the July 24 edition of the Alligator
for comments he made about autistic chil-
dren.
To start, let me just say that I am a liberal,
but I do listen to talk radio every so often,
and I just happened to have been listening
the night that Savage's "horrible" quote was
uttered. I later heard the mainstream media
vilifying him for the quote.
But the fact is that the quote was taken
entirely out of context. Savage was merely
commenting on how autism is being over-
diagnosed and that the criteria for being
diagnosed for autism is rather subjective,
which I believe is true.
If the media actually aired the entire 30-
minute discussion he had on the topic, then
people would realize that the 99 percent of
cases he was referring to was related to mis-
diagnosed cages.
Last I checked, one sentence doesn't tell
the whole story. For the record, this is the
last time anyone will ever hear me defend
a conservative radio talk show host, but
come on, people, let's not destroy someone
for something that was taken out of context.
There are plenty of other things he has said
over the years that are actually offensive.

UF official tackles party ranking at Senate meeting


* CLASS SIZES, BUDGET
ALSO DISCUSSED.

By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Princeton Review may
rank UF as the nation's No. 1
party school, but at least one
UF administrator has doubts.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice
president for UF Student
Affairs, spoke at Tuesday's
UF Student Senate meeting
about the ranking, which she
said lacks credibility in her
book.
Telles-Irvin said students
who filled out the survey
likely answered with the goal
of earning a rowdy ranking.
She said she also doesn't
understand how having
a large Greek system or a
strong intramural sports
program, two of the criteria
in the rankings, equate to a
party atmosphere.
Telles-Irvin did take one
criterion seriously high
levels of alcohol consump-
tion.
She discussed a university


goal of implementing a bud-
dy system to prevent alcohol-
related deaths and injuries.
"We had four deaths, un-
fortunately, of students who
were intoxicated this past
year," she said. "So we're re-
ally going to work very, very
hard at trying to promote a
pro-active approach in this
effort."
Telles-Irvin also addressed
another criterion that helped
UF earn its spot at the top:
hours spent studying or
lack thereof. e
One senator asked how UF
planned to keep the quality of
education high despite bud- .
get cuts.
Telles-Irvin said she be-
lieves UF President Bernie
Machen really wants the uni-
versity to have smaller class
sizes, which she said charac-
terizes a great university.
She added that Florida's
budget woes have put a
tremendous damper on the
state's universities.
"How do we continue to Edward lzqulerdo/Alligator
strive for excellence and not Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for Student Affairs, discusses upcoming plans for UF at Tuesday night's Stu-
have the funding to do so?" dent Senate meeting in the Reitz Union.
she said.


Some experts say groups take advantage of green movement's popularity


GREEN, from page 1


has increased the world's dependence on
and demand for fossil fuels, Delfino said.
It has also affected the amount of toxins
being released into the environment.
Roy R. Carriker, UF professor of food
and resource economics, said the evolu-
tion and growth of the environmental
movement reached its stride in the 1970s.
During that decade, most of the federal
legislation creating programs for envi-
ronmental protection was passed because
there was broad public support for gov-
ernment initiatives.
"Now the context is really global in na-
ture," Carriker said.
And since the movement has captured
the attention of millions nationwide, envi-
ronmentalists have rushed to capitalize on
growing interest.
Laurel Brown, marketing and program
director at the UF Center for Training,
Research and Education for Environmental
Occupations (TREEO), said that under-
standing green issues can sometimes be
overwhelming to the average person.
"It's like there's so much information,
it's hard to know where to start," she
said.
Brown said that bad habits, like leaving
the lights on and overusing water, are the
first thing that individuals need to focus
on to make a true difference. For her, it's
not just about buying a reusable canvas
shopping bag because you see that other
people have it.
It's about using that bag faithfully.
One downside to the green movemerit
is that new techniques are being imple-
mented, yet the final outcome and effects
of these are unknown, Brown said.
For example, low-flow toilets, installed


in new neighborhoods in order to conserve
water, are backing up sewer lines at water
treatment plants, she said.
"I think sometimes the downfall will
be if we don't look at the whole picture,"
Brown said.

"Now the context is really global in
nature."
Roy Carriker
UFfood and resource economics professor

Rob Brinkman, chair of the Suwannee-
St. Johns group of Sierra Club Florida, said
Americans need to drastically decrease
their use of natural resources.
"The typical American requires the re-
sources of at least five acres of land, he
said. "It has been estimated that if every-
one on Earth lived the American consump-
tive lifestyle, it would require two or three
more planet Earths."
Brinkman said he wishes he could go
back in time to stop .the nation's total reli-
ance on fossil fuels from developing.
"Imagine if the same effort we have put
into fossil fuels had instead been invested
in solar technologies," he said.
In the end, Brown thinks early educa-
tion and awareness about environmental
issues are going to be a vital part of future
solutions.
But with the growing awareness of en-
vironmental issues comes the opportunity
for manipulation.
Brown said some advertisers are taking
advantage of the public's environmental
interest.
"There's the term out there called green
washing, which is very similar to white-
washing," she said.
"It's when you're overusing the term
green more to sell a product than through


the actual changes you have made."
Brown feels it's hypocritical for compa-
nies to say they are more environmentally
friendly than they truly are.
"For some folks, it's just to be part of
a movement, whether they're doing any-
thing or not," she said.
And advertisers are not the only ones
capitalizing on the trend.
Brinkman feels politicians use environ-
mental concerns and worries about gas
prices to secure votes as a "cheap political
ploy."
Politicians sometimes rush solutions
to environmental issues without doing all
the research, such as in the case of offshore


drilling, he said.
Priya Vijapura, a UF biology sopho-
more, said she thinks green means being
more environmentally friendly.
However, Vijapura said she doesn't go
out of her way to do anything because
she's too busy. She doesn't know of any
recycling facilities in her apartment com-
plex and feels many green or organic prod-
ucts are too expensive.
Vijapura thinks most college students
are aware of the issues but find it too dif-
ficult to make the changes.
"We're all into our own little worlds
right now," she said. "It's hard to change
your habits."

BOG pushing for more faculty, staff pay raises


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

Enticing Florida universities'
faculty and staff with pay raises
seems to be the method of choice
for administrators anxious to
solve the state's intellectual "brain
drain."
The Board of Governors, the
State University System's high-
est governing body, is set to ask
for $56.8 million of the 2009-2010
state budget to be allocated for
pay raises for faculty and staff of
Florida's 11 public universities.
The board's proposal comes
less than a week after UF an-
nounced an $11 million plan to


give some faculty and all staff
modest pay raises using revenue
from tuition increases and new
fees.
. Bill Edmonds, the board's
spokesman, said the proposal
aims to provide financial relief
during trying economic times.
State employees have gone
two of the last five years without
a raise, Edmonds said.
"It'd be irresponsible to go and
leave it unaddressed," he said.
The board's budget proposal,
which includes the compensa-
tion request, will be presented
to the board at its meetings next
Wednesday and Thursday.
If the board adopts the budget,
it will have to go through the


Legislature and ultimately Gov.
Charlie Crist to go into effect.
Edmonds said it is too early to
say how the $56.8 million would
be divided among the universi-
ties if approved,
in part because
each univer-
sity has its own
method for
payroll.
"But if it
were applied
Glover u n i f o r m1 y
across the board,
it would be a 4 percent pay raise,"
Edmonds said.
UF Provost Joe Glover said the
board's raises would not interfere
with UF's plan to award faculty


and staff pay increases this year
because the board's plan would
go into effect for the 2009-2010
fiscal year if it passes through the
necessary steps.
UF faculty and staff members
receiving raises will see their pay
increase in Sept. 19 paychecks.
Raises for some UF faculty
will be doled out based on merit,
while all staff members will re-
ceive a raise of 2 percent or $600,
whichever is more. Glover said
it is much too early to determine
how additional raises would be
distributed.
"That would largely be up
to the president to decide that,"
Glover said.
Communicating needs in


higher education from the board
to legislators may be facilitated

last week by Sheila McDevitt, the
board's new chairwoman,
Edmonds said. McDevitt will
lead the Legislative, Government
and Community Initiatives
Committee in efforts to build a
"closer and more productive re-
lationship" with the Legislature,
which spurned the board earlier
this year by calling for its major
restructuring that eventually
failed.
"The Legislature has their ears
open to ideas, and this is one idea
here," Edmonds said. "Let's find
a way to keep talented people in
the system."


Scanners will measure various hand dimensions but not take fingerprints

chemical engineering PhD student, said she
thinks the scanners are a waste of money.
"It's not like there isn't enough man pow-
er to just check the IDs," Durvasula said.
Christina Colletti, a UF anthropology and
Spanish junior, disagreed.
"That's cool, because if you forget your
ID, you're not screwed," Colletti said.
Bowles said in addition to convenience,
the scanners will prevent non-students from


entering the gyms.
Matt Allen, a UF freshman, who said he
got into a gym without an ID on Wednesday,
said the scanners could help keep non-stu-
dents out of the gyms.
The plan is also "kinda creepy," Allen
added.
The software will include updated tech-
nology that can differentiate between cur-
rent and former students, he said.
Initially, students will be able to register
their hand profiles at the gym, he said. In the
future, however, they will have to register at

UF ACADEMICS

Med school application rates strong despite new options


By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite soaring application
pools for new Florida medical
schools, UF's College of Medicine
is still receiving a healthy number
of applications.
The University of Central
Florida and Florida International
University will begin their in-
augural classes in fall 2009 and
started receiving applications in
June.
Along with UF, they will
continue accepting applications
through Dec. 1.
Dr. Ira Gessner, assistant dean
for the admissions office at UF's
College of Medicine, said it is
too early to estimate how many


applicants to expect. But based
on how many the college has re-
ceived so far, the numbers do not
appear to be much different from
years past.
Last year, UF received 2,850
applications for 135 spots.
"We believe that amongst stu-
dents who choose to go to school
in Florida that we are applicants'
first choice," Gessner said.
Robert Larkin, director of
admissions at UCF's College of
Medicine, said most pre-med
hopefuls in Florida apply to all
the'medical schools in the state,
so application rates at UF prob-
ably wouldn't change.
Larkin said UCF has received
more than 1,900 applications
since the college started accept-


ing them earlier this summer.
Betty Monfort, director of
admissions and records at FIU's
College of Medicine, said the
school has received about 1,400
applications so far.

"We believe that amongst
students who choose to
go to school in Florida that
we are applicants' first
choice."
Dr. Ira Gessner
UF College of Medicine
admissions office assistant dean

Both UCF and FIU are assem-
bling an inaugural class of 40 stu-
dents, but UCF stands apart.


The medical school will pro-
vide a free ride to its inaugural
class, which amounts to $160,000
for each student's tuition and
living expenses for four years, ac-
cording to a UCF news release.
The scholarship program is
fully funded by private dona-
tions, Larkin said.
He said the school will provide
scholarships to its second class as
well though to what extent has
not been determined.
This model was spearheaded
by the dean of UCF's College of
Medicine, Dr. Deborah German;
who received a full scholarship
to Harvard Medical School in the
1970s.
"She herself is a truly blessed
story," Larkin said. "She simply


wanted to give back."
Monfort said FIU's unique
curriculum that combines pa-
tient-based learning and a com-
munity outreach program at-
tracts altruistic applicants.
She said FIU presents a less
expensive and innovative al-
ternative to the University of
Miami's medical school.
UCF and FIU were two of
three medical schools prelimi-
narily accredited this year by the
Liaison Committee on Medical
Education, Monfort said.
Texas Tech University's School
of Medicine was the third.
In Florida, accredited medical
schools exist at UF, Florida State
University, the University of
South Florida and UM.


Student Health Care Center earns national recognition


* SHCC RENEWS ACCREDITATION.

By CHRISTINA McGINLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

One of the country's largest health care
accrediting groups has given the UF Student
Health Care Center its stamp of approval.
The SHCC has been accredited, or recog-
nized for meeting patient-care and perfor-
mance benchmarks, since 1975, but it must


be re-examined every few years.
The Accreditation Association for
Ambulatory Health Care, which has accred-
ited more than 3,600 outpatient facilities in
the U.S. since 1979, evaluated the SHCC for
the fourth time, said Louise Okken, quality
improvement coordinator for the center.
Earning accreditation is not mandatory
for the facility, and less than 15 percent of
college health care centers nationwide are
accredited, according to an SHCC news
release.


Okken said that even though three years
pass between evaluations, the. SHCC does
not take time off from maintaining high
standards.
"We live quality every day,"
On Okken said. "It's not like a
Campus test you take once every three
years."
Okken said few colleges become ac-
credited because it is a long and expensive
process.
Depending on the facility's size, it could


cost more than $10,000, she said.
The process includes a lengthy applica-
tion, a self-evaluation by the center being
considered and a visit from surveyors to
examine health care practices.
Okken said the center-was fortunate be-
cause the surveyors who came worked in
college care, which helped them understand
how the SHCC should be run. She said the
facility was reviewed on May 19 -20 and re-
ceived its certificate of accreditation earlier
this month.

SFC exhibit portrays U.S. cities


* DISPLAY FEATURES CITY LIFE-
INSPIRED PAINTING, POETRY.

By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville residents don't have
to travel far to get an intimate look at
American cities.
Santa Fe College's newest art exhib-
it, "Cities," opened Tuesday anc is on
display at the President's Exhibition
Hall on SFC's Northwest Campus.
The exhibit features acrylic paint-
ings by SFC graphic design coordina-


tor Jorge IbAfez.
The illustrations display city life as
portrayed in poems by his daughter,'
Rebeca Ibfilez, who publishes under
the pseudonym "Johnny Rocket."
Excerpts from her poems accompany
each painting.
"What I portrayed was the state
the poems put me in," he said. "It's all
about the feeling of the city."
He said his daughter's poems
inspired him to recreate what he said
was one of the most exciting cities in
the world New York City.
Although Rebeca IbAfiez's words
were prompted by experiences in


Gainesville and Asheville, N.C., she
said they can reach. anyone,, any-
where.
"My poems can be read univer-
sally," she said. "I write in such a way
that the reader can see their own expe-
riences."
She said she wants to share her
inspiration with her readers.
"I want these poems to connect
people," she said.
Jayne Grant, SFC's exhibit director,
said viewers will enjoy the exhibit's
one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
"It's different from anything we've
had in a while," Grant said.

Film looks at


lawn obsession

By SARAH HENDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

For Eric Flagg and Isaac Brown, going green is a
laughing matter.
"Gimme Green," a 27-minute documentary
directed by Flagg and Brown, focuses on a topic
rarely included in the dialogue on environmental
dangers: the perfect lawn.
The documentary was shown Tuesday night at
the Reitz Union.
"We wanted to make a film that peo-
pie would watch, a film that wouldn't
depress people."
Isaac Brown
"Gimme Green" director

The directors, who are both alumni of UF's
Documentary Institute, discussed their film with
more than 100 students.
"We wanted to make a film that people would
watch," Brown said, "a film that wouldn't depress
-people."
Americans spend a total of about $40 billion on
lawn maintenance annually, Brown said.
In the documentary, a man talks about a mas-
sive lawn mower as if it is a priceless sports car,
a woman criticizes her neighbors' unkempt lawns,
and an elderly man pets his.grass.
"Laughter and humor really open up the way we
learn," Flagg said.
Brown and Flagg wanted to make an environ-
mental documentary that people could identify
with. Almost all Americans can relate to lawns, the
filmmakers said.
"Most people might not connect with a huge en-
vironmental problem like global warming," Brown
said. "That's why we chose lawns."

UF alum travels across country to film documentary


Film focuses on pros and cons of the U.S. tax system


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

If there's anyone who has reason to com-
plain about gas prices, it's Vincent Vittorio.
Within a month and a half, the indepen-
dent film producer and UF alumnus drove
9,000 miles with his film crew to conduct
interviews for their political documentary,
"An Inconvenient Tax."
The feature-length documentary takes a
look into the history of the United States' tax
system and compares it to those of foreign
countries.
Vittorio hopes to shed light on what he
said is one of the most misunderstood -
and most important aspects of American
society.
"This is a topic that really hasn't been
touched," he said. "We felt confident in our
ability to bring an idea that people truly
don't understand to the floor."
Although the crew of five filmmakers


only began filming the documentary in
June, Vittorio expects it to be completed by
election time in November.
He said because voters are directly af-
fected by taxes, unlike many of the other
campaign issues discussed by the media,
he hopes the documentary will help them
when it comes time to cast their ballots.
"It's been quite a journey, but
we've come full circle."
Vincent Vittorio
film producer

"The government tells us how to live
our lives through the tax code," Vittorio
said. "We're making sure that people have
a little better insight into our economy and
tax system before they make a decision on
something they don't understand."
He said misunderstandings about the
proposed FairTax, which would replace
income, payroll and estate taxes with a na-


tional retail sales tax, is what spurred him to
create the documentary.
"It's a shame that people are supporting
something they don't understand," he said.
But the challenge isn't providing people
with information, he said. It's providing a
objective representation of such a contro-
versial issue.
Vittorio said the crew's biggest obstacle
was convincing people that he and his crew
did not have an agenda.
"Everyone thinks we're making a
Michael Moore film," he said. "But that's
not at all what we're trying to do."
To keep a balanced portrayal, they in-
terviewed everyday people, economists,
professors and politicians from both ends of
the political spectrum.
The crew traveled all over the Northeast
to meet with big names such as CEO and
magazine editor Steve Forbes and former
Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee.
And with less than two months to inform


Americans on one of the most important po-
litical issues, they had no time to waste.
On some days, Vittorio said, they would
have to wake up at 4 a.m., drive all day, con-
duct an in-depth interview and then drive
home.
"Because of the pressing time frame, we
had to jump into it and not look back," he
said.
Though this is his first political film,
Vittorio has produced many other indepen-
dent films with his team from Life Is My
Movie Entertainment, a production com-
pany he founded in Gainesville.
He has had to postpone other documen-
taries, including one about a person who
survived the Holocaust at age 6, to be able
to complete "An Inconvenient Tax" by elec-
tion time.
After conducting two more interviews,
the crew expects to complete filming this
week.
"It's been quite a journey, but we've come
full circle," Vittorio said. "We hope that the
film will inform people and get them excited
about what they're watching."

Tuberville, Auburn hope new coordinators give spark


The media voted the Tigers to win SEC's West Division


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org"

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -All the
questions surrounding Auburn
didn't change the perennial high
expectations.
The writers at Southeastern
Conference Media Days picked the
Tigers to win the West Division,
although coach Tommy Tuberville
wasn't especially pleased.
"I was really excited 'til Igot up
this morning (and saw) you guys
picked us to win the West," he
said. "Y'all are never right."
Auburn enters 2008 with new
coordinators on both sides of the


ball.
The biggest change comes on
offense, as Tuberville brought in
Tony Franklin to install his spread
offense.
In just a few weeks of practice
before the Chick-fil-A Bowl last
year, the Tigers managed to pick
up enough of the offense to earn a
23-20 victory against Clemson.
"It's hard in this league to
consistently pound and pound
the ball," Tuberville said. "People
were ganging up on us- eight,
nine, 10 people in the box.
"I was looking for a way to help
this football team score a few more
points on the average, help the
defense."


Center Jason Bosley enjoys the
new offensive outlook.
"I can see a big difference,"
Bosley said.
"It is fast paced now, which is a
complete 180-degree turnaround."
There is even more unknown
at the quarterback position, where
Tuberville admits he has no starter
heading into two-a-days, although
he believes naming a starter is key
to the team's identity. But some-
body is going to have to replace
the departed Brandon Cox.
"We will have somebody as our
starting quarterback," Tuberville
said.
"I'm a true believer that your
quarterback is the leader of your


football team in terms of your
locker room, your sideline, not just
for your offense, but for your de-
fense and your kicking game."
On the defensive side of the
ball, Paul Rhodes will now be call-
ing the shots, although Tuberville
does not expect much veering
off the path of the typical speedy
Tigers defense.
"We won't make a lot of chang-
es," Tuberville said. I'm going to
let [Rhodes] use his-imagination in
terms of what he thinks will help
this football team with the talent
that we have. But we still live on
speed, putting as many people out
there that can run as possible. I
look at the defense from inside out,


starting with the defensive line.
"You have to be good on the
defensive line in this conference
to have an opportunity to get to
.Atlanta."
Standout defensive end
Sen'Derrick Marks will be a part
of that key unit and has already
seen some changes with Rhodes
in place.
"It is a lot different than last
year, and there is a lot of intensity.
There is more coaching on the field.
He will stop practice and come out
to the field and coach."
Marks joked that he will miss
one thing from prior seasons, how-
ever seeing UF on Auburn's
regular-season schedule.
"That put a good win on our
schedule every year," he said.

"X-Files" movie will leave you wanting to forget


OSILLA N GRINER + AVENUE WRITER


;)on't expect awards for "X-Files:
I Want to Believe." This extremely
disappointing thriller lacks the sense
of urgency and the satisfying, yet
open-ended, conclusions that made
the TV show a hit.
After leaving the FBI, Dr. Dana
Scully (Gillian Anderson) is work-
ing"at a hospital when FBI agents
approach her to locate her former
partner, disgraced agent Fox Mulder
(David Duchovny). The FBI wants
Mulder's help to locate a missing
agent, the partner of agent Dakota
Whitney (Amanda Peet). Joseph
Crissman (Billy Connolly), a con-_
victed pedophile priest, claims to
receive visions of the missing agent,


and Whitney needs Mulder's exper-
tise in investigating the paranormal
to verify the priest's visions.
The film is an odd choice for
a summer blockbuster. Set in the
middle of winter, its tone is gener-
ally grim as it questions the mo-
tives and morality of its characters.
Without any of the luscious scenery
or special effects that characterize
this season's films, the movie sets
itself apart as a film that relies on
thought rather than spectacle.
Scully and Mulder reprise their
roles as the skeptic and the believer,
but their arguments about blind
faith and other issues of belief may
seem a bit too familiar to fans of


the series. These arguments contain
catchphrases that are repeated so
often they make the film feel as if it
were stagnating instead of moving
toward 'a conclusion. The phrase
"the darkness" becomes overused,
and every dis-
pute seems to
culminate in Anders,
the question both pe
of whether the as if they had n
characters in- nai sho
volved "want to
believe."
The dialogue
may be stiff, but the acting does not,
suffer. Anderson and Duchovny
both perform effortlessly as if they
had never left the original show.
Meanwhile, Connolly manages to


balance the appearance of sincerity
and deviousness to make his charac-
ter a perpetual mystery.
"X-Files" does do a good job in
weaving together different story
lines, making allowances for the
time that has
passed between
)n and Duchovny the end of the
form effortlessly series and this
ever left the origi- new film.
v. oii However,
77 one instance
of trying to
integrate too
many story lines fails. The late ar-
rival of FBI assistant director Walter
Skinner, a series regular played by
' Mitch Pileggi, seems tacked on and
will lose audience members new to


the "X-Files."
The final revelation behind the
film's mystery isn't as far-reach-
ing or profound as you'd like. The
conclusion may be meant as a test
of faith, but it ends up being a test
of patience. To provide a definite an-
swer to the film's mystery would be
to kill the sense of infinite possibility
that the series originally thrived on.
"X-Files: I Want To Believe" will
probably be best enjoyed by die-
hard fans wishing to know what
happened to the series' main char-
acters, but it generally fails where
the series once excelled. With so
much potential and so little success,
you might want to believe that the
new "X-Files" film was better than
it was.


* Accepting yourself the first step to great sex


* I thought very long and hard about what
I could write to my fellow Gainesvillians
about sex. What could I write on this highly
* charged, controversial topic?
I didn't want to write a bunch of fluff, I
definitely didn't want to give "100 Tips" on
anything, and I don't want to tell you things
S you already know.
The aim of my articles is to give you
the tools to improve your sex life, even if
* you don't think you have one. Trust me,
you do. Sex is everywhere. Sex is life. Sex
has been repressed and given a bad name
for far too long. Sex has been put up on an
unnecessary pedestal that makes us fear it,
feel ashamed about it and stunt our growth
process as human beings. Sex has put us


here for thousands of years, and sex is tak-
ing us to the future.
So, let's start from the beginning and
make this the foreplay of articles since
we're getting to know each other. Let's start
with you. Do you love yourself?
You should because the first thing I'm
going to cover is the most simple yet crucial
key to great sex. It sounds clich6d, but self-
acceptance will take you a long way.
Why? Picture this: You and your partner
are about to have sex. You may be enjoying
yourself, but there's a nagging voice in the
back of your head that forces you under
the covers and makes you scramble for-the
light switch as you think, "I hope he doesn't
notice my (insert insecurity here)."


Sex might not be enjoyable because a
number of us feel impeded in some way.
We don't feel good enough; we don't feel
beautiful, and we feel downright ugly
about our bodies and ourselves. Guys
and girls alike are subjected to unrealistic
imagery of what we should be, as opposed
to what we are. Face it, not all of us are go-
ing to be the thin, big-busted, hairless, leggy
supermodel type.
Instead of thinking about what you hate
in your body, think about what you love
about it. You may hate your stomach, but
you have great legs. Tune in to the parts of
your body that you absolutely love; then
learn to love every other part.
Whatever your obsession, just tell your-


self it's not that
bad because more
than likely, it's
not. Those around
you are not going
to notice whatever flaw you're worried
about. Your partner is especially not going
to notice it while you're having sex, and if
he does, then you shouldn't be with that
person.
Love yourself. Accept yourself as you
are in all your beauty, even your beautiful
"flaws." When you love yourself, it gives
you an insane amount of confidence, which
is the sexiest thing you could ever wear.
You may not believe me, but it's up to you
to try it.

Local band proves Kansas kin no 'wayward son'


Being the son of a famous band member
has its perks.
But for BraxtonAdamson, son of Kansas'
bass player Billy Greer, a free ticket into the
spotlight was never an option.
"I had to prove it to my dad and Kansas,"
Adamson said. "I had to pay my dues. We
went from playing free concerts to getting
paid at sorority and fraternity functions."
On July 18, his band, 3-Story Fall,
opened for Kansas at a free concert at The
Jacksonville Landing. Greer introduced his
son's band and watched the performance
backstage.


"I couldn't have been prouder," Greer
said. "He was nervous before he got out
there. He kept asking me what he should
talk about, and I told him it'll come to
him."11
When the UF food and resource eco-
nomics junior was 7, he started playing the
guitar and told his parents it was his dream
to become famous. He played in a few
bands in grade school and high school, but
he didn't seriously pursue a career in music
until college.
Adamson and guitarist Nate Lezniewicz"
began to play cover songs in 2006. They


added drummer Dan "Chewy" Howard
and bass player Alex Hall.
With the new additions, Adamson
wanted to move away from covering songs
and began writing his own. Greer said he
showed Adamson a few things, but he only
needed a little help to get going.
Greer also serves as his son's manager
and offers him advice on how to succeed in
the music industry.
"My dad would always tell me, if you
want to write a hit song, fall in love. If
that doesn't work, get your heart broken,"
Adamson said.
Adamson's songs "Where did we begin"
and "Unexpected Someone" were based on


relationships he had in college.
The band's performance at The
Jacksonville Landing was the first time the
band had performed its new songs to an
audience.
After the concert, Toney Sleimen, owner
of The Jacksonville Landing, asked the band
to perform during the Florida-Georgia foot-
ball game in the fall.
Despite the prospects ahead of him,
Adamson plans on earning a bachelor's
degree.
"Music is my passion, but there are no
guarantees," he said. "All I want out of
life is to be happy, and I'm my happiest on
stage."

Mr. Bright Eyes' return to "Oberst" a return to form


ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER


For all those who don't get
their nightly fill of Entertainment
Tonight, let me recount the story of
Miami native and fast food enthu-
siast Tamien Bain. A self-described
"up-and-coming" rapper, Bain
penned a Big Mac chant (a la "two
all beef patties...") and was one of
five finalists contending to replace
the sandwich's original jingle by
way of an online 40th anniversary
contest. Here's the rub: Bain held up
a McDonald's when he was 14.


God bless America.
What does this obscure anecdote
have to do with Conor Oberst? To be
honest, not a whole lot, but it does
demonstrate that this is still a land
of second chances.
And so Mr. Bright Eyes, one-
time boy wonder turned emo out-
cast, is in the right place. Shelving
monikers, Oberst's self-titled album,
"Conor Oberst," also strips away the
clutter that weighed down previous
works.


The electronics, the cheesy
monologue interludes, the pseudo-
philosophical rambling they're
all gone.
Twelve raw, disarming songs
remain. With acoustic guitars, tap-
tap percussion and saloon piano
accompanying his quavering inflec-
tions, the Heartland hero once again
showcases the kind of introspec-
tive folk prowess that prematurely
anointed him heir to the Dylan
throne. I
Even the political slant and anti-


war campaigning
have vanished.
And while this
is most likely
a temporary
development
Connor Oberst Oberst awash
in a euphoric rush
of "change we can believe in" it
is one that frees gentle ebb and flow
numbers like "Cape Canaveral" and
"Milk Thistle" from burdensome
sermonizing duties.
While "Lenders in the Temple"


and "Danny Callahan" tap into
intoxicating, world-weary imgres-
sionism evocative of Neil Young's
"Rust Never Sleeps," one of the
record's most striking (and poorly
titled) tracks, "Souled Out!!!" ironi-
cally boasts an electric workout, riff
and all.
The cut's noisy backdrop per-
fectly fits the frenzied manner in
which Oberst considers the prosp-ect
of redemption via the gates of heav-
en. Sounds a lot like Bain: different
golden arches but same principle.


Wardrobe staples make fashion fun and stress-free


' EMILIE WILLIAMS + AVENUE WRITER


To my avid readers and fashionistas:
I have loved the opportunity to share my
fashion tips with you each week, and I hope
you gained some valuable insight into this
summer's fashions. This will be my last
article because in just a few short days I
will be graduating and embarking on the
next chapter in my life. Before I go, I want
to share with you some of my key fashion
staples. Let's call it Em's Guide to Summer
Style.
First and foremost, you absolutely have
to have at least one little black dress and
little white dress in your closet, especially


for living in Florida. I have acquired several
of each in recent years and have an LBD for
dressier occasions. I have one for the fall
months and a casual one
for summer.
I only wear my You a
LWDs in the spring and have
summer months, and I black dress an
always look for ones that in ur c
transition well from day in your co
to night.
My second all-time fa-
vorite-summer item is a pair of cork wedges.
I wear them with almost every outfit, and I


b
at

s


love the way the tan shoe blends with my
tan skin. It makes your legs look so much
longer, and the natural color complements
a variety of outfits flawlessly. For those of
you with fairer skin, a cork wedge may be
too dark for your skin
tone. But, have no fear;
solutely have to a bright espadrille is a
* least one little perfect alternative.
little white dress When I am not in
et. class, I spend most of
my summer days in a
bathing suit and cover
up. I usually buy most
of my bikinis at Target because they are
inexpensive and come in a variety of prints


and colors.
However, I will spend a little more on a
great beach cover-up. With the right fabric,
a cover-up can last for years and can be
worn as a dress for a quick run to the gro-
cery store or to class.
When summer rolls around, I love
experimenting with a fresh, new summer
scent. This year, I am in love with Tom
Ford's Black Orchid perfume. It is a sweet
scent with hints of jasmine and gardenia.
So far I have only worn it on special oc-
casions, and each time I do, at least one per-
son will compliment me on how delicious I
smell. It is a powerful, sensual scent for the
sophisticated woman.

Spurrier looks for complete season


South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier walks onto the field
after halftime of the Gators' win against the Gamecocks.


* USC DID NOT GO TO A
BOWL GAME LAST YEAR.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. At
Southeastern Conference
Media Days last year, South
Carolina coach Steve Spurrier
said his team finally had
enough talent to compete for
the conference title.
Midway through the season,
it looked like he was right.
The Gamecocks started the
year 6-1, including a 16-12 win
at Georgia, but fell apart down
the stretch to finish 6-6 and miss
out on the bowl season.
That period included
a home loss to Vanderbilt
and narrow misses against
Tennessee (overtime) and rival
Clemson. Not providing the
momentum Spurrier hoped for
coming into 2008.
"The two losses to Tennessee
and Clemson were heartbreak-
ers," the ex-UF coach said.
"They were games that were
within our grasp. It didn't work
out, and it's history now. You
have to put it aside. You can't
mope and cry about it for too
long. Like I said, 8-4 is a huge
difference from 6-6."
Hoping to erase the bad


ending, Spurrier is calling
this season a fresh start, even
more so because he has new
coordinators on defense and
special teams and must break
in starters at running back and
quarterback.
Senior back Mike Davis will
replace Cory Boyd, the only
USC player taken in the 2008
NFL Draft, and junior Tommy
Beecher will take over for the
graduated Blake Mitchell at
quarterback.
Sophomore Chris Smelley
was expected to compete as
well, but Spurrier said he didn't
want Beecher looking over his
shoulder.
"Tommy has performed
a little bit better in the scrim-
mages in the spring, so it was
time to make him the starter,
tell him he's the starter, and tell
him he's going the distance,"
Spurrier said.
"And he doesn't have to
worry about one interception,
he's our guy. We're going to
give him a chance. We believe
he deserves a chance to run
with it, and we're going to
find out if he can take us a long
way"
Stephen Garcia could also
have been in the discussion, but
legal troubles have kept him off
the team.

Desmond Parks left coaches around
the Southeast with tears in their eyes.
The Greer, S.C., tight end, whoc
authored a poem entitled "Cry, Cry,
Cry" which was later published in the
anthology "A Celebration of Young
Poets", committed to play for the Gators
Monday.
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Parks, who
wrote the poem as a high school fresh-
man in 2006, chose UF over Clemson
and North Carolina.
Parks caught 29 passes for more than
400 yards and 5 touchdowns last season
as a junior his first as a tight end after


moving from defensive end.
Parks, rated as a three-star prospect
by Scout.com and listed as the No. 41
tight end in the country, averaged 13.9
yards per catch as a junior.
With senior Cornelius Ingram set to
graduate after the 2008 season, Parks
hopes to compete for early playing time
at UF.
"I just felt like it was the best fit
for me."
Desmond Parks
UF verbal commit

Only sophomore Aaron Hernandez,
the lone scholarship tight end on the
roster for the 2009 season, figures to be


ahead of the Greer High product when
he enrolls this spring. Parks runs a 4.72
40-yard dash and a 27-inch vertical, ac-
cording to Scout.
Parks is already three inches taller
than Hernandez and even has two
inches on Ingram, who's considered a
physical specimen on the college level.
Parks said that the chance to compete
for playing time -as a freshman was one
of the deciding factors in his decision.
It will be hard to get playing time from
Hernandez, though, as he was a five-star
recruit and the No. 1 player at his posi-
tion .
"I know if I come in and work hard, I
have a chance to play early," he said.
Parks' commitment is the eighth of

Bama aims


to improve

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Which Alabama
team will take the field in 2008?
That must be the question Crimson
Tide fans are asking themselves after a
2007 filled with many highs and lows.
Alabama finished the season at 7-6 with a
.500 Southeastern Conference record.
But it was the way things fell apart at
the end with a four-game losing streak
- that sticks out in most people's minds.
"Our team last year probably didn't
play with a lot of consistency in perfor-
mance," Coach Nick Saban said.
"We didn't finish games. We didn't fin-
ish the season."
Things started well in Saban's first sea-
son at the helm.
Alabama won
/umu, ) ~ its first three
games, including
a 2-0 start in the
SEC after a 41-38
victory over then-
No. 16 Arkansas, keyed by a game-win-
ning touchdown with eight seconds left.
The Crimson Tide entered the Top 25
the next week and followed that up with 3-.
a 26-23 overtime loss against Georgia,
who finished the season ranked No. 2.
Alabama scored 10 points in the final 6:
30 to force the extra period before falling
short.
"We need to finish," senior safety
Rashad Johnson said. "It's just something
that wasn't a mindset for a lot of guys on
the team last year."
Four weeks later, the peak of the Tide's
season came with a 41-17 thrashing of
then-No. 21 Tennessee. But Alabama fol-
lowed that up with four straight losses,
including defeats at Mississippi State and
at home against Louisiana-Monroe.
Days after that upset, Saban created
controversy when he referenced two mo-
ments in U.S. history the September
11th terrorist attacks and the Japanese
bombing of Pearl Harbor.
"Changes in history usually occur after
some kind of catastrophic event," Saban

Gamecocks need consistency from new QB Beecher to help defense out


SPURRIER, from page 29

Spurrier said Garcia's status is in the hands
of university officials.
Beecher one of Spurrier's first recruits
at South Carolina sports a strong arm and
better speed than his competition.
Spurrier was also quick to point out that
he has the highest grade point average on the
team.,
The Gamecocks will need consistency from
Beneer to mask a shaky defense.


USC was 110th in the nation last year in
run defense, but preseason All-SEC selec-
tions Captain Munnerlyn (cornerback), Jasper
Brinkley and Eric Norwood (linebackers)
should help turn that around.
"When you look at what we've done sta-
tistically, you have to say, 'Hey, we've got to
do some things differently, especially on de-
fense,'" Spurrier said.
"We haven't had a defensive lineman or
linebackers drafted since I've been there, so
I'm not blaming the coaches. I'm just saying
that, as a head coach, I have to do something
differently to try and get a spark."


As always, references to his 12 years spent
coaching at UF were peppered throughout the
interview, and he also took time to offer his
thoughts on Gators quarterback Tim Tebow's
chances to win another
SOTHHeisman Trophy.
Last season Tebow
rushed for five
touchdowns against
Spurrier's squad.
"I don't know. He certainly could, I guess.
If he runs for about five touchdowns a game
like he did against us, he'll do it," Spurrier
said, smiling.


It's the likes of Tebow and Georgia's
Knowshon Moreno who will give Spurrier's
squad a serious uphill battle in the SEC East,
no matter how good the Gamecocks are.
"In the back of our minds we still want
to win the SEC," Spurrier said. "I don't
think we need to talk about it this year
- we probably don't need to talk about it
any year, really. But if we're lucky enough
to get in position, we won't be afraid
to think we're as good as the other guy.
"So that's sort of maybe where we are. If we
get in position, let's believe we can play with
any team in our conference."


Players begin to get acclimated to coach's system as they head into second year


BAMA, from page 29

L said at the time.
"It may be 9/11, which sort of
changed the spirit of America rela-
tive to catastrophic events. Pearl
Harbor kind of got us ready for
World War II, and that was a cata-
strophic event."
That loss against the Warhawks,
which hail from the Sunbelt con-
ference, also led to LSU coach Les
Miles poking some fun at the for-
mer Tigers coach this week.
At a Tigers booster club meet-
ing in New Orleans last weekend,
Miles said "not to make too much
of that (Alabama) game, as it seems
a lot of teams in Louisiana beat that
team."


Miles avoided opportunities to
add onto that during his turn at me-
dia days on Wednesday, character-
izing his remarks as a playful joke
and instead talked about the "great
respect" he had for Alabama.
On Thursday, Saban humbly
admitted Miles had a point.
"Well, he told the truth," Saban
said.
"He told it like it was. We need
to earn it. You know that's what
the guy told Private Ryan, Private
Ryan told Tom Hanks on the bridge
after 12 guys got killed getting him
out of there, Tom Hanks says, 'Earn
this.' We need to earn the respect."
The work to change the team's
mentality has already begun.
"Finishing is mental," Johnson
said. "Anybody can go and finish


and run through the line, but it's
all the mindset of how you get
through the line. It makes it a lot
tougher to be able to finish if you
don't get your mind right before
the season.
"Finishing is mental."
Rashad Johnson
Senior safety


"It's something that (the coach-
es) have been wearing on us all off-
season about finishing, and I think
guys are actually starting to get
their mind where they know how
to finish now."
Saban enters 2008 hoping for
more consistency with him entering
his second season in Tuscaloosa.
"The expectation of them know-


ing what to do, how to do it, why
it's important to do it that way, and
having some consistency in sys-
tem," he said.
"I think there's a lot of things
that contribute to trying to get play-
ers to play with more confidence,
but having a better understanding
of what they're supposed to do,
how they're supposed to do it, and
why it's important to do it that way
probably contributes to it as much
as anything."
Johnson has seen his teammates
become more accustomed to their
coach's ways.
"A lot more guys understand
what coach Saban wants from play-
ers," the safety .said. "A lot more
guys are buying into it. You see
guys not missing class, coming out


running hard everyday It's a whole
lot different from last year. A lot
more guys speaking up when guys
are doing things wrong."
Saban knows everyone sur-
rounding Alabama will get an early
glimpse of the team's potential
when the Tide open with a neutral-
site game against preseason darling
Clemson, who was picked to win
the Atlanta Coast Conference.
Which isn't an easy game to start
out your schedule.
"The thing that this game with
Clemson does, who has a returning
veteran team, who has had success,
and who will be a top-10 team, will
be a challenge for our team relative
to seeing where we are and how we
compete and where we need to go
to get better win or lose."

The Natural


Burckle set to fulfill Olympic dreams in Beijing


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Senior Maureen Farrell jumps
into the pool and pulls herself up
on to the blocks. She grasps the
handles closely as if she's hold-
ing on to the last remnants of her
slowly evaporating career.
Her knees leave their 90-degree
angle as she pushes away, and
one of her last chances to beat
swimming powerhouse Auburn
in a relay is underway at the
2005 Southeastern Conference
Championships.
Then it's upperclassmen Vipa
Bernhardt and Candace Weiman's
turns. With a junior and a sopho-
more, you're feeling pretty good
about your chances. Experience
should help, after all.
It's as close as a 400-meter med-
ley relay can be. And now, it's up
to a freshman, Caroline Burckle.
One-on-one-on-one in the free-
style against Georgia's Amanda
Weir, who had spent last summer
in Athens at the 2004 Summer
Olympics, and Auburn's Emily
Kukors.
Burckle wouldn't have any
Vegas betters breaking the bank
for her.
They would've, however, been
very rich if they had.
The UF freshman reached and
touched the wall seven tenths of
a second before Weir and .73 sec-
onds before Kukors.
Southeastern Conference, meet
Caroline. Caroline, meet the SEC.
It was a rude introduction for the
rest of the conference.
"I've been waiting four years
to beat these girls," Farrell says.
"These girls made my dreams


come true."
For Caroline, well, her dreams
were just beginning and are now
continuing into the Olympics,
which are just nine days away.

THE BEGINNING
Not even the Kentucky roost-
ers deem it time to wake. In her
Louisville home, Caroline rolls
out of bed at 4:30 in the morning.
While most of her schoolmates
are still having dreams of Power
Rangers and just getting over the
nightmares from the Goosebumps
they read the night before, Burckle
is in a pool.
That's not your typical morning
wake-up shower.
Then she goes to school, prob-
ably the most normal part of her
day. Then it's back to the water.
After- that, it was time to scarf
down food and hope that her brain
cells were focused enough to fin-
ish homework. Then, it was time
to sleep and start it all again the
next day.
"That consumed her life," her
mother Jill said.
No kidding.
"Growing up it was second
nature to stay at the pool all day
during the summer," said younger
brother Clark, who's also a swim-
mer at UF.
It's safe to assume the Burckles
are immune to chlorine.
When she was 9 years old,
swimming started to become more
serious.
Her coaches told her parents
they should put her on the club
team, and moving through the wa-
ter had started to become second
nature.
She had the keys to start her
swimming ignition, and she knew


how to work them with little effort.
As Caroline put it, swimming just
"kind of came to me."
Mike DeBoor, who coached
Caroline's club team from when
she started until she left for
Gainesville, said she wasn't scared
or intimated by anyone.
She still lacked that competitive
instinct, though.
Apparently just a dash of breast-
stroke seasoning was needed.
Four years later, when she was
13, she made her first junior na-
tionals. And,.perhaps as a sign for
the future, it was in Gainesville.

"If she had realized it
a little bit earlier, she
might've been even more
successful."
Gregg Troy
UF swim coach


"Once you make it on the na-
tional scene, that's a pretty big
feather in your cap," Jill said. "It
was at that point the goals were
probably reset."
Reset. Relaunched. Redone.
However you put it, Caroline was
on the swimming radar.
"By 13, 14, that's where we
were thinking the national, in-
ternational level," DeBoor said.

THE STRUGGLE
Caroline went to the 2004
Olympic Trials and did well.
Almost -too well, maybe. She came
to UF and had a freshman year
that had her name already getting
sprinkled over record books: SEC
Freshman of the Year. NCAA run-
ner up in the 500-meter freestyle.
All-American in four relays and
two individual events. Fifteen

Swimmer of the Year in 2008.


first-place finishes.
She even set the conference
record for the 500 free in her first
conference event.
So, the next year, she felt 500
meters of pressure.
"I struggled for a little while,"
she said.
Consider that struggling for
Burckle meant taking home three
All-America honors her sopho-
more year, but that much early
success redefines future successes.
"I put a lot of pressure on
myself," she said. "I was pressur-
ing myself instead of having fun
swimming."
For probably the first time in
her swimming career, there wasn't
constant improvement. Caroline
was stuck. She was expected to
be the best swimmer on one of the
nation's best teams, and she didn't
know how to deal with that.
"Her freshman year, she broke
out and then fell back into a rut,"
Clark said.
"She got real nervous with her-
self about whether she could re-ac-
complish what she had done. The
next few years were kind of rough
for her."
Those national and interna-
tional expectations now appeared
quite distant.

THE TURNAROUND
UF coach Gregg Troy and
Caroline sat down and had a meet-
ing before her senior year. He told
her she could be the best swimmer
in the nation.
"Okay," she said.
That's about as technical as
Caroline Burckle gets. The summer
before her senior year she went to
the Pan-American games and won
a gold medal.
And guess who got their con-
fidence back. There was no more
pressure, or at least not any that
was affecting her. She returned to,
as Clark puts it, "keeping the sport
in its natural form."
In other words: Have fun trying
to keep up everyone.
"Caroline is very much a mo-
mentum athlete," Troy said. "And
when she's confident about what
she's doing, she's really tough to
beat."
Not only tough to beat, but im-
possible to beat. At least on the col-
legiate level. She was named the
NCAA Swimmer of the Year and
took home two individual titles,
while breaking the NCAA record
in the 500 free.
But all those accomplishments
just meant she was supposed to
make the Olympics this summer.
This time, she met expectations.
"There weren't that many col-
lege swimmers that made the.
team," Jill said. "A lot of them were
professional swimmers that didn't
just (compete in an) NCAA meet."
It's been proven that Caroline
isn't most swimmers.


"When I hit the wall and I
turned around and saw that I
made it, I was thrilled and thepain
went away," Caroline said.
Clark said that, as a swimmer,
you expect that the Olympics are
"one of those things that you think
just happens to other people."
His sister is now in that cat-
egory.

"THE MOUTH"
It's as wide as Joakim Noah's
wingspan. It speaks as loud as a
Tim Tebow stat line. It's open more
than a 7-Eleven.
It's Caroline Burckle's mouth.
"The hard thing about swim-
ming is that your face is always
in the water, so the only time you
can talk is when the coach is talk-
ing," Jill said. "That's not good (for
Caroline)."
So, is it true?
"I just talk a lot," she said.
And that's why DeBoor origi-
nally called her "The Mouth."
Needless to say, the name stuck.
She taught her youngest brother
how to get a few words in as well.
Jill tells her daughter that their
youngest of three "just doesn't
know the drill" and is always talk-
ing. Caroline's response just rolls
of the tongue.
"'Mom, I didn't know the drill
either,'" she says. "'I was always
talking, too.'"
It's ironic that her premier
stroke is the freestyle, because that
embodies her personality. Clark
takes care of the money for the
siblings, and Caroline takes c aof
the, um, social aspect.
Caroline does help her friends
and brother with their social is-
sues, and always wants to make
sure they're taken care of emotion-
ally. But she has to look good while
doing that, of course.
"She likes fashion a lot," Clark
said.
How much do you like shop-
ping, Caroline?
"A lot."
Gotcha.
Let's forget about the chatter
for a second. Because as happy and
smiley as she is, there are moments
of nervousness. Her struggles
during her sophomore and junior
years are evident of that.
"She didn't picture herself at
that level," Troy said. "If she had
realized it a little bit earlier, she
might've been even more success-
ful."
After she qualified, Clark said
his sister was more relieved than
overjoyed. Even on a- bus taking
her to the airport where she'll
leave for Beijing, she still ha n't
let it sink in that, yes, you aran
Olympian.
"I'm thinking that it will when
I'm on a plane for a whole day. But
I think I'll be able to soon.. .hope-
fully," s aid with a laugh.
She's still laughing, Gainesville.
And for. her success, that's about
all she needs. -.-

Morgar' is going into his third
season at UF and was an assis-
tant his first year here. He previ-
ously coached at South Florida


and Virginia Commonwealth. He
coached 16 all-conference perform-
ers at USF.
To help ease the loss of Pigg,
Gators track and field coach Mike
Holloway announced Wednesday
that they've hired Brian O'Neal,
who spent 15 years at Mississippi,
as an assistant coach.
"I am very excited with the op-
portunity to join the Florida track
and field family," O'Neal said in
a statement released by the UAA.
"I look forward to the challenge of
helping Coach Holloway and the
rest of the staff reach the goals he
has set in place."
O'Neal will oversee all the
women's hurdles events, as well as
the men's 110 hurdles. He will also
assist Holloway with the sprints
and relays.
"I am extremely pleased to be
adding Brian O'Neal to our track
and field staff," Holloway said.
"He brings a wealth of knowledge
in several areas, and his passion for
the sport is at a very high level. He
