With some gun owners con-
cerned that gun laws will be-
come stricter with Barack Obama
in the White House, local gun
stores may be profiting off the
election results.
At M & C Army Surplus on
Northwest 13th Street, interest
in and sales of firdarms have
increased nearly 50 percent since
Obama was elected president,
said Suzanne Miller, the store's
owner.
Similar increases have only
happened a few times before,
Miller said, such as during the

after a jogger was raped at Haile

Islands on Monday night.
Students who were unwilling to list their
country of residence in U.S. territories or be-
yond on licketmaster were unable to buy tick-
ets to the UF-Alabama showdown on Dec. 6.
When the clock struck 6 p.m., some UF
students were able to enter the site, apply for
a ticket and put in their UFID numbers, which
served as their password for the site. After


retyping a security word on the next screen,
they were prompted to provide their billing
information.
Student It was at this point that the
Life Midway, Wake and Johnston
Atoll islands became part of
West Gainesville far West, as the U.S. ter-
ritories are located in the Pacific Ocean.
Jason Goldstein, a UF philosophy senior,


said the U.S. was not an option as his home
country, and the U.S. Minor Outlying Islands
was the "least random" choice.
At this point, other ticket-seekers became
confused and didn't think to put another in-
ternational location. As result, they timed out
of their session and lost their tickets.

breaking 27 degrees.
The record was set with a
31 degree low for today's date
in 1951, said Angie Enyedi, a
meteorologist with the National
Weather Service in Jacksonville.
"It's going to be pretty darn
chilly, but not uncommon for
this time of year," Enyedi said.
In 2007, temperatures
reached a low of 28 degrees at
might on Nov. 17, she said.
Because Gainesville is far
away from water, its tempera-
tures tend to plummet, she
said.
Temperatures on Wednesday
will reach a high of 50 de_
grees and gradually warm up
Thursday and Friday, she said.
Until then, she warned
people to be prepared for cold
weather.
"During freeze watches,
we will be advising people to
protect the four P's," Enyedi
said. "People, pets, plants and
pipes."

petition to hold the special meeting.
Dictor wrote that regardless of party af-
filiation, the majority can make mistakes,
and the minority power must be present to
counter the interests of the majority.
"What is the point of a minority protec-
tion if such a large number is required to use
it?" he wrote.
For the measures to
~pass, a two-thirds vote is
required by the Senate,
,; and they must pass a sec-
..ond time. -
Meanwhile, a ,tardy
nomination to the SG
agency Image has been a
Johno subject of dispute.
usan According to Student
Body Statutes, the Image chairman position
should have been filled by Student President
Kevin Reilly 14 days after he assumed presi-
dency in May.
While Reilly said the delay was caused
by an unsatisfactory applicant pool, some
SG leaders felt the executive committee
nominated the wrong candidate out of the
two students considered.
Ankur Lakhani, a UF senior who has
been involved with the Gator Party and said


members of his fraternity are involved in
SG, was chosen over Frank Bracco, a UF se-
nior and former senator who led another SG
agency, Chomp the Vote, from 2007 to 2008.
Image is responsible for video recording
and providing a weekly broadcast of SG ac-
tivities, such as Senate meetings.
For the past four months, Bracco has
filmed Senate meetings on his own because
no chairperson was appointed.
Student Body President Kevin Reilly,
who voted for Lakhani, said some executive
committee members felt Bracco was too par-
tisan and unprofessional for the job.
"Some people didn't feel that was the
kind of person that we wanted working in
Our administration," he said.
Lakhani wrote on his application that
his goals included improving SG's public
relations through measures such as putting
Senate meetings on CDs or "getting a person
from the Alligator to write a GOOD article
about Student Government."
When asked to expound upon these
ideas, he said they are just broad examples.
Student Body Treasurer Paul Drayton
voted for Bracco because he fulfilled the
tasks of the position over the past few
months.

At tonight's Student Senate meeting,
members will vote on legislation that would
limit the power of the minority party ini ad-
dition to voting on a controversial nomina-
tion for Image chairman,
The legislation would affect the Orange
and Blue Party, which is the minority party
in the Senate and controls about 19 percent
of the available votes.
If the legislation is approved, sugges-
.tions for Senate and committee seats would
require 40 percent approval from senators at
the meeting, doubling it from the 20 percent
currently required.
In addition, special meetings, such as the
one called to pass a resolution in opposition
to Amendment 2 on Oct. 30, could no longer
be formed through a petition of 20 senators.
That power would lie only in the hands
of the Senate president and Student Body
president.
Senate President Jordan Johnson, a Gator
Party member sponsoring the legislation,
said the percentage increase would put SG
in line with U.S. Senate requirements.


Johnson said changes are needed to run
a productive and orderly Senate, and the
minority currently uses their power to slow
progress. -
"These dilatory tactics just aren't going
to work anymore because they're not fair,"
he said.
On Oct. 14, Johnson voted on revisions
to Senate procedure, which included an
increase in protection of the driinority party.
The move was triumphed as a bipartisan ef-
fort during the Senate meeting.
However, the legislation Johnson has
sponsored for tonight's meeting will undo
those changes if passed.
Johnson said he was not aware that he
was increasing protection of the minority
party when he voted on the rules the first
time.
"One-fifth was fine until those evil
minority party senators actually had one-
fifth," said Orange and Blue Party Sen. Sam
Miorelli. in a Judiciary Committee meeting
on Sunday.
In an e-mail sent to senators Monday
night, Orange and Blue Party Sen. Benjamin
Dictor wrote that the work on Amendment 2

On the roof of Sisler Hall brought
about a dozen University Police of-
ficers to the scene Monday afternoon
in response to a possible suicide at-
tempt.
UPD Sgt. Hank Spurlin said .
someone at Dauer Hall, which is
across the street from Sisler, called
UPD and reported that a person
who looked like a student was on
the roof talking on a cell phone.
Spurlin said the student was
gone when the officers arrived-

On othe psol gho f
CamtpuSt the student's descrip-
tion, officers found the
student and learned he had been on
the roof enjoying the nice weather,
not contemplating suicide.
"It was much to do about noth-
ing," Spurlin said.
After being questioned by police,
Austin Norden, the student on the
roof, said in an interview he was tak-
ing a break from his organic chemis-
try professor's office hours.
"I kind of go up there periodi-
cally," said Norden, a health science
junior. "It's just nice. It's calm up
there, great view of the campus."
Spurlin said Norden didn't break
any laws but was referred to Student
Conduct and Conflict Resolution
for violating the Student Conduct
Code.

"but apparently it's a big deal on the

County staff will have to deal with concerns about
security, funding and maintenance before following
through with plans for a bicycle trail that would con-
nect UF with Haile Plantation.
More than 50 Haile Plantation residents, devel-
opers and cyclists came to weigh in on the benefits
and problems of the trail at a community workshop
Monday.
The trail, deemed a "top priority" by Alachua
County commissioners, is aimed at people commut-
ing to the university from Southwest Gainesville.
"Before we actually allocate dollars to the project,
we want feedback," said Jonathan Paul, the concur-
rency and impact fee manager for Alachua County
Growth Management.
Many residents raised concerns about the security
of the trail.
"It's incredibly dangerous to bike to the
university each day."
Eric Keys
Haile plantation resident and UF professor

Parts of the trail run past backyards, and pri-
vacy fences are discouraged in Haile Plantation, said
Dorothy Benson, a resident whose back yard faces the
proposed trail path.
"I have a pool in my backyard," Benson said.
"There's a privacy concern with this path."
But residents who had planned on voicing con-
cerns directly to county commissioners were chsap-
pointed. Although Paul said commissioners were
notified of the meeting, none attended.
Planners hope the trail, which would be funded by
the county gas tax, will develop piece by piece over
the next five to 10 years, starting with the area west of
Interstate 75 and Southwest 34th Street.
Paul said Haile Plantation residents would be an
important part of planning because the trail needs the
homeowners association's approval.
Some attendees at the meeting spoke in favor of
the trail.
"Its incredibly dangerous to bike to the university
each day," said Eric Keys, a Haile plantation resident
and UF professor who bikes to Turlington Hall daily.
Keys said he would use the trailbut said there are
concerns that need to be addressed in the planning
process.
"They need to be sensitive to the needs of the trail,"
Keys said. "There are obviously security and funding
issues."


der state law. The rest comes from the UF
Foundation, Orlando said.
He said UF's size and complexity warrants
Machen's salary. UF has the
'second largest studentbody
in the U.S. behind Ohio
@ ~State University, which em-
ploys about 35,000 people
Sand has a budget of about
$4 billion.
The Chronicle's report
Ivachen pointed out that a handful
of presidents have turned
down raises and bonuses because of economic
troubles. One president to do so was the
University of Central Florida's John Hitt.


Hitt has turned down a raise for two years
in a row, UCF spokesman Chad Binette said.
This year, Hitt cited the state budget situation
as his reason for turning it down, Binette said.
Back in July, Machen announced an $11
million plan to give some faculty and staff pay
raises for the first time in two years. Machen
said he would not take the salary bump.
At a July Student Senate meeting, Machen
said he accepted his bonus before UF got into
the budget cut situation.
"Everyone, including my wife, thinks I'm
overpaid," he said at the meeting. "If things
are going great, my life's pretty simple, but
when things are not great, that's when I sort of
have to show up and make decisions."

UF's President Bernie Machen remains
Florida's highest paid public university presi-
dent, but his national standing has slipped.
Machen's total compensation of $731,811 in
2007-2008 made him the eighth most compen-
sated president among public universities in
the U.S. with at least 10,000 students, accord-
ing to a Chronicle of Higher Education report
Released Monday.
He ranked No. 6 in last year's report.
Machen narrowly beat out the earnings
of Florida State University President T.K.
Wetherell, who made $711,145 in 2007-2008.


University of Miami President Donna E.
Shalala made considerably more at her private
university, cashing in at $942,493.
The highest paid public university presi-
dent was Ohio State University's E. Gordon
Gee, who received a total compensation of
$1,346,225. Total compensation accounts for
base salary and bonuses for that year.
Machen, whose base salary was $414366,
also received a $7,800 car allowance, a $75,000
annual bonus, a $210,000 retention bonus, a
$1,000 legislative bonus and $23,445 in retire-
ment pay, according to the report.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said only
$225,000 of Machen's salary is paid by the
state, which is the maximum allowed un-

month listed Crist among those trailing top
potential contender Alaska Gov..Sarah Palin
for nomination.
Palin was chosen by 64 percent of
Republican voters, while Crist captured 2per-
cent, according to the poll.
David Hedge, UF political science profes-
sor, said anything is possible.
Both Crist and Bush are visible figures,
Hedge said, and a nomination would largely
depend on whether they want to run and are
willing to raise the money needed.
Michael Martinez, associate UF professor
of political science, said both politicians are
qualified.
Although a president from Florida prob-


ably wouldn't affect the state at a national
level, candidates tend to do well in their home
state, Martinez said.

for the Republican Party to
consider Crist as a potential
Atnominee, as long as there
-are no major controversies
that would alter his reputa-
crist tion before then. But 2012 is
a long way off, he said.
'Bush carries more baggage because of the
low approval ratings of his brother, President
George W. Bush, Martinez said.


A Gallup Poll Monday showed President
Bush's approval rate at 27 percent, acconting
to the group's Web site.
Hedge said he thought the Bush name
could be a positive factor in the election be-
cause the family is part of a strong political
network.
A presidential candidate from Florida
would probably put more attention on the
state in the form of extra ads and press, Hedge
said, though Florida already gets attention.
Hedge said 2012 is still too far away to
kn~ow who would make a stronger candidate.
The issues change with the times, he said,
adding that, "the election was just over."
"People like to speculate," he said.

Rejected

Ticketmaster system still

flawed

Tik master may very well be the worst misnomer this
side of "Big Ten football." They've mastered nothing.
While trying to order Southeastern Conference
Championship Game tickets last night, we failed to recognize
anything remotely masterful about the online ticketing system
- agamn
The first time we dealt with this garbage was for the UF-
Georgia game three weeks ago. At least then our dissatisfaction
stemmed from not even having a chance to buy a ticket.
Sure we had to wait for hours through connection time-
outs and multiple bathroom breaks but at least we weren't
given false hope. We can deal with rejection as long as the sys-
tem plays by the rules.
This time around, things were a little different.
This time the system fooled us into believing we actually
had a shot at watching the Gators march to glory in Atlanta.
We got through in a jiffy this time. No staring at loading
screens for three and a half episodes of "South Park." We were
the-test-came-back-negative excited.
Type in your UFID, instructed the all-knowing Ticketm~aste;r.
Correctly type the phrase in the box, the Ticketmaster contin-
ued. Have fun trying to find the U.S. in our drop-down list of
countries, said the almighty.
Well, we followed directions exactly as our kindergarten
teachers had taught us. The reward? Nothing. The Ticketmaster
system encountered a problem.
After repeating steps one through three, we still got shafted,
but not because of an error. All of the tickets were sold out.
This defeat was devastating. We were so close we could
smell the downtown Atlanta sewer funk. Now, we'll have to
settle once again for the savory scent of Wing Zone, Natty and
disappointment.


ally inclusive), there's not much that I enjoy more
than watching a fundamentalist Christian argue a
modernized Christian. .
From the view of an objective third party, it's a revealing
take on the Bible itself and ori the evolution of "memes"
within society.
Memes were first outlined by Richard Dawkins as a
medium other than genes through which natural selection
can be obsenred. In short, memes are cultural units. Stories,
philosophy and anything else transmitted through inter-
personal communication can be considered a meme.
With each telling of a story, the details change. Certain
things will be emphasized to prove a point based on the
needs of the era, but the fundamental story stays the same.
Memes are similar to different breeds of dogs. Dogs liv-
ing in the mountains grow longer hair to keep warm. Sight
hounds are extremely fast so they can catch prey. Scent
hounds have huge nostrils that pick up a lot of information.
Despite their different strengths, they're all still dogs.
Similarly, a meme might emphasize one thing or another,
but at the end of the story, the wolf always eats grandma.
Religion is an interesting case.
Religion is a meme. It wants to change. It has to stay
updated to remain relevant and survive. Religious texts
lack this ability. .
Christianity wants to change to remain relevant, but the
Bible was still written 2,000 years ago.
To watch a fundamentalist Christian talk religious shop
with a modernized Christian is to watch that furIldamental
conflict between the evolution of Christianity and the at-
tempt to stay true to the Bible.
The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution


are both memes. They evolve with
the times. The Constitution, at its
heart, is still the same as it was 200
years ago, but as our society has
changed and progressed, so has the
foundation of our nation.

letters@alligator.org Compromise in favor of accepting
the e quality of all pole, which
allowed everyone to vote regardless of wealth, educa-
tion, race or gender. Barack Obama is not three-fifths of a
President-elect.
The Bible does not amend. That's a problem. It doesn't
matter how many Christians are against slavery; in all
forms, the Bible still says it is kosher.
It doesn't matter how many Christians say rape is bad,
Lot was still saved from Sodom for being such a good guy
after offering his virgin daughters to be raped by the city.
Lot's wife was turned to salt for watching the city burn.
Matthew and Luke will always disagree by 10 years on
when Jesus was born.
It is a conflict between living in the real world and living
in the Biblical world, and it's difficult for people to do both,
The result is people pick and choose when they want to live
in one world or the other. A fundamentalist chooses more
of the rules and punislunents of God, while a reformist will
choose the hippie-esque words of Jesus.
SIt is possible that no single: work contradicts itself more
often than the Bible.
Why would it ever need to change if it could take all
three sides of a two-sided argument?

E-learning brings nostalgia for paper
In two and a half years, the e-Leamning
System has not received much attention
in your publication, despite the fact that
it has become an integral part of every
student's UF experience and nearly every
professor's curriculum.
Between the lament ("It crashed right
in the middle of my quiz!") of some
students and the acceptance ("I can use
Google to help me on exams!") of others,
it is easy to misconstrue this polarization
as satisfaction.
While I feel the system has many short-
comings as a medium for laziness as well
as merit in its environmental worldliness,
my greatest lament is for tradition.
Long gone are the days of paper syllabi
- the dog-eared, ballpoint-pen-canonized
leaflets of our forefathers. PDF documents
take up cold space on our hard drives.
Gone are the days of constructing the
essay by hand, drawing the beloved out-
line in anticipation of a hand-composed
paper. Too often are our words drafted
letter by letter into word processing ap-
plications, rather than word by beautiful
word on that long-antiquated technology
our parents and elementary school teach-
ers called "paper."
Perhaps it is a certain reverence for


that behooves me to "pen" this short letter
reminding readers of the merit of scholar"
ship beyond their computers.

Ticketing system fails again
I'll say it right now: Ticketmaster
blows.
UF students eagerly waited Monday
evening for the chance to buy tickets to the
SoutheasternConference Championship.
Die-harc1 Gator fans were sitting at
their computers, ready for the exact mo-
ment when the tickets went on sale, and
they should have had no trouble securing
their spot in line.
But they did.
I watched several people log on to the
Ticketmaster Web site promptly at 6 p.m.,
and only two were able to buy tickets.
The rest attempted then re-attempted
in vain, only to be told "no tickets for
you," while the person to their left was
busy typing in credit card details, tickets
virtually in hand. ,
Everyone was full of questions. Is
Ticketmaster releasing the tickets in
blocks? Were the few lucky winners
selected at random? Was Alabama
given a larger allotment? And why does
Tik taer think that we all live in the

For whatever reason, most of us failed.
After enduring UF's previous experi-
ment with a custom ticketing system, we
expected the problem would be fixed. It
wasn't, and once again we grudgingly
accepted our loss.
Students don't care who sells our tick-
ets. We won't balk at the $45 cost, and we
won't complain about the two-ticket limit.
We'll even try to understand why we
aren't allowed to resell them on StubHub.
We only want a system that is fair,
accurate and capable and will distribute
tickets in a way that makes sense to us.
We want to see our Gators!

Fla. votes on Obama, Amendment 2 clash


After awarding its 27 electoral votes
to the incompetent George W. Bush
2000 and 2004, Florida has finally
shown signs of maturing. In 2008, our
stubborn state budged, proving itself open-
minded enough to support a progressive
black man who is the antithesis of "W."
It only took eight years of indisputable
failure at home and abroad, a global energy
crisis and a global climate crisis, among
Other disasters, to get us to this point.
As St. Augustine said, "Ex malo bo-
num," or "out of bad comes good."
Not good enough, apparently. Yes, we've
matured, but we haven't quite grown up.
In the same election, Florida has man-
aged to uphold its adolescent narrow-mind-
edness, by voting "yes" on Amendment 2,
the so-called "marriage protection amend-
inent," which had nothing to do with pro-
tecting marriage. Not for anyone.
SAnyone who did a bit of research
could see the uselessness of Amendment
2 because Florida already has two statutes
defining marriage as between a man and
a woman,
The pernicious vagueness of
Amendments 2's wording allows for a het-
erosexual couple's partnership rights to be
stripped as well.


Todd If it took a mason-
POrtnOWitZ able person to vote
Speakig Out for President-elect
Barack Obama, how
is it that such an un-
reasonable amendment could have passed?
After all, Obama won by a 50.8 percent to
48.5 percent margin over Sen. John McCain
in Florida. Amendment 2 passed with 62.1
percent for and 37.9 percent against.
Admittedly, the candidate someone
chooses for president and how someone
chooses to define marriage are very differ-
ent choices. The distinction to be made here
is not between the choices themselves but
between the motives behind each choice.
Obama's victory was driven by ratio-
nality, circumspection and the courage to
change qualities of a mature adult.
Amendment 2's victory was driven
by emotion, blindness and intolerance to
change signs of an ego-inflated teen-
ager.
Should marriage be a right reserved to
one man and one woman? I'm not arguing
whether it should or shouldn't, simply that
Amendment 2 added nothing to the dis-
cussion. The amendment is frighteningly
negative, and it was carried misguidedly
into our constitution on the backs of preju-


diced voters.
Amendment 2 was more of a bragging
right, bumper-sticker issue than it was a
real concern with the doctrine of marriage.
Just take a look at the "Yes2Marriage Store"
at Yes2marriage.org, filled with overpriced
T-shirts, bumper stickers, buttons and a
cute, little teddy bear. Such positive zeal for
taking away a fellow human's rights.
If its supporters would have slowed
down, looked at the issue objectively and
considered the other side of the argument
- the same sort of diligence and presence
of mind it took to vote for Obama they
might have rejected the deceptive amend-
ment.
Then again, maybe not.
The thought of two people of the same
sex getting married seems so threatening
that even a bill pretending to ban it can
pass with a clear majority.
Even California, famed for its approval
of homosexual marriage, had a change of
heart in this election.
Its unfortunate, but it seems things will
get worse for homosexuals before they
get better. Ex malo bonum. Or, as I like to
phrase it now, "Out of Bush, Obama."

David Medoff, a UF engineering junior, said he
and a friend became willing residents of an obscure
U.S. territory to get their seats, but there was an ad-
ditional $2.50 charge on their billing summary that
Ticketmaster called an "international will call fee."
Medoff said when he called TIicketmaster custom-

been a problem all night.
"We explained the situation, and they changed
our country to the U.S. and wiped out the $2.50 fee,"
Medoff said.
A customer service agent said while Ticketmaster
couldn't help students who did not file an order,
it would be able to change the billing country and
lift the fee if an order was successful, as it did for
Medoff.

According to police, holiday bur-

Gainesville Police Department


spokeswoman Summer Hallett
said police think the burglaries are
connected and attribute them to the
holiday season.
"Typically we see a spike in

Hallett said. "This year, they started

Since late September, the bur-

nounced by GPD were in apartment

In many of the cases, the neigh-
bors have reported hearing loud

ter from the audience.
Sharon E. Rush, one of the
two law professors asking ques-
tions, assured the audience she
still wants her students to read
foot-notes.
Getting a little more serious,
Gonzalez talked about the issue
of judges' salaries, saying they are
not paid what they are worth.
"We're spending billions of
dollars on the war in Iraq, and we
can't afford to compensate a hand-
ful of federal judges. That's crazy,"
he said, to perhaps the loudest ap-
plause of the conversation.
Stevens agreed and compli
mented Gonzalez on his elo
quence.

Mary Liu, a University of Florida fresh-
man and Honors student, will be the face
of the university for the 13 million readers
oe seventeen magazine.
Liu is one of 15 students chosen to
share her freshman college experience. She
was selected from approximately 2,000 ap-
plicants from across the country. UF alone
had more than 300 students apply.
Along with various essay submissions,
Lin filmed a two-minute video to apply
for Seventeen's "Freshman 15." The video,
a self-written rap to "L~ow" by Flo Rida,
contains Liu's own creative lyrics such as,
"My parents gave me good genes, a roof
over my head, now I'm at UF, independent
and well-read."
Her fun lyrics gave her an edge over the
competition for the prize of sharing her
freshman experience with millions.
"I want to depict the true life of what
college really is," Lin said. "I don't want to
sugar coat anything.
Liu and the other 14 freshmen, first fea-
tured in the November edition, will appear
each month until May.
Each week, Liu writes two blogs, as well

Mary Liu walks with childhood friend and fellow UF student, Dylan Lennon, to an
election day celebration,


devoted to (Freshman 15)," Lin said. "It's a
lot of pressure."
Liu blogs about joining campus organi-
zations, such as Model UN and Navigators,
and writes about studying, "campus cuties,"
friendships and enjoying newly found inde-
pendence as a college student,
"The independence scares me, but it's
also exciting and fascinating," Lin said.
This independence, Liu admits, may
have led her to make a few mistakes. Her
mistakes, however, have taught her a lot.


"I'm really big on learning from not
only your mistakes but the mistakes of oth-
ers because you don't have enough time to
make them all yourself," Lin said.
Liu hopes her mistakes will help future
college freshman have a smoother transi-
tion into the college life.
"We're all here to grow as students," Liu
said. "I want to guide other girls who will
be facing the same things that I am going
through right now."

"We are delighted to be able to offer this
innovative degree program at a time when
the need for sustainable solutions to land
use, housing and urban infrastructure is so
evident. Our degree program is flexible yet
substantive, and will prepare students for
very interesting careers," said Peggy Carr,
the college's associate dean for under-
graduate students and academic affairs. The
college also offers five graduate certificate
programs in sustainability.
In addition to the bachelor's degree, UF
recently added an undergraduate sustain-
ability minor and a post--juris doctor degree
in environmental and land-use law.
As the high demand for green jobs
illustrates, sustainability is becoming a
standard business practice across industries.
The Green Building Certification Institute
reports that approximately 63,000 build-
ers and designers already have earned the
Leadership in Energy and EnvironmenE2
Design (LEED) professional accreditation.
Maybe in the future, all jobs will be
green jobs.
By Kaidin O'Farrill


Environmentalists aren't the only ones
with "green jobs" anymore.
Green or sustainability jobs, in which
professionals work to solve problems like
energy use and urbanization, are popping
up in practically every business, govern-
ment and nonprofit sector -- under job
titles such as sustainability officer, sustain-
able design professional, resource manager
and energy engineer.
Apart from those in the energy sector
the sustainability jobs in highest demand
lie in the design and construction indus~
tries -- where sustainable action can be a
part of the organization's main business
function.
Environmental design and green interior
design are cited among Kaplan's recent
10 hot green careers list,. and U.S. News
~ancLIorldReport has chosenn architects
and construction managers as careers with
bright futures.
To meet the demand for "green skills,"
the University of Florida has created the
Bachelor of Science in Sustainability and
the Built Environment in the College of
Design, Construction and Planning.

Meyer prepares for potential coordinators' departure


d ators defense only getting better


ALLIGATOR
www.alligatorSports.org


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexleraalligator.org

SWith the way UF's offense and de-
fense have performed lately, it's only
natural for Urban Meyer to expect other
programs to start sniffing around his
coordinators.
Meyer said he believes his coordina-
tors, mainly Charlie Strong and Dan
Mullen, would only leave Gainesville for
other high-profile, higher-paying jobs.
"The great thing is you don't leave
Floricia unless it's going to another spot
as a head coach or maybe the NFL for
a ridiculous amount of money," Meyer
said. "If it's a chance to better your fami-
ly, I'm in favor of bettering your family."
Still, that has not stopped him from
having a contingency plan. While he said
he does not have a "hot list" of potential
replacements if any coordinators leave,
Meyer has made some preparation.
"I keep my eyes open," he said. "I
have some stuff written down."
Just in case.
Dan Shanoff of the Sporting News pre-
dicted in a blog post Monday that Gators
offensive line coach Steve Addazio
would be the one to replace coach Greg
Robinson, who was fired Sunday.
Addazio coached at Syracuse from


1995-98. Syracuse alum and former
Miami Dolphin Rob Konrad was push-
ing hard for Addazio back in October.
Meyer did not make any specific
reference to Addazio in Monday's press
conference, but was speaking about any
potential coordinator leaving.
"If things happen, then we'll have the
appropriate discussions," Meyer said.
MEYER ON UTAH: Meyer, who coached
Utah to an undefeated season in 2004
and a Fiesta Bowl victory
against Pittsburgh before
coming to UF, said he was
in favor of a playoff sys-
FOotball tem that season because it
would have given his Utes
a chance to win a national
championship.
This season, with Utah again threaten-
ing to complete the season without a loss,
Meyer abstained from saying whether
the Utes should be in contention for a
title over a one-loss Big 12 Conference or
Southeastern Conference team.
"Oh boy," Meyer said. "What's that
they say, 'plead the fifth?' I'd get blown
completely out of the water if I answered
that. That's why I'm not going to. And
that's not one way or the other."

Enea finished her freshman year
playing on the injury, before being
informed by a doctor that her ACL

That offseason, she was presented
with the choice of rehabbing the knee

Over the summer in hopes of playing
a full season.
She opted for surgery, missed
Only one game and

our services, Brandon Spikes, are no
longer needed.
SWhichever NFL team uses its
first-round pick on you this spring is get-
ting a middle linebacker who will run its
defense well for the next 10 to 12 years.
They know you can be part of a changing
environment on defense because they see
what you did in Gainesville.
Charlie Strong, Urban Meyer, Dan
McCarney, Vance Bedford, whoever has
had a part in transforming this defense,
the rest of the Southeastern Conference is
not happy with you. Especially opposing
offensive coordinators. For the next two
years, their job is going to be very difficult.
*-:Even without Spikes next year, the
Gators defense will be better. Good luck
passing on a unit that already has 17 in-
terceptions. Good luck running the ball on
a unit that is second in the league in run
defense and allowing just 3.3 yards per


carry.

OF Enea re-
By KYLE MAISTR(
Alligator Writer
imma istrioalligator.org '

UF coach Tun Walton confirmed
junior All-American Francesca Enea
re-injured her right knee during -
fall training in a press conference
Monday.
Enea first hurt her knee during her
freshman season and missed more
than 20 games.
How much time, if any, she will
miss in the 2009 season is still in
question, but Walton acknowledged
the mnjuy.
"It is the same reconstructed kn~ee.
It is her ACL," he said. "Whether or
not it's going to require surgery, or
(she's) just going to continue to do
what she's done and just reevaluate
the end of the season, we still got a
few more weeks in the fall and into
the spring to decide what she wants
to do."

QB CO mm it Reed


188 f S ga me fast

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

Four years.
That's all Jordan Reed needed to learn football, adapt
to it and ride it to a college scholarship.
Reed, now a senior at New London High in Neg-
London, Conn., didn't start playing football until his
freshman year of high school.
Before that?
"I used to play baseball," Reed said.
Reed had been playing baseball since age 10 and was
a pitcher, shortstop and third baseman. He stopped when
he got into high school and made the transition to fooWs~
ball, while many of his fellow recruits in the same class
had probably been playing for half their lives,
"When I was a freshman, I fell in love with it (foot-


as a four-star prospect one of the nation's top 300 play-
ers. He's ranked 11th at his position and was also rated as
a possible All-American candidate.
Reed was constantly surrounded by hype but he
"never thought anything of it."
-He verbally committed to UF in August and said noth-
ing would change his mind.
"I felt real comfortable when I went up there (UF)," he
said. "Everything was good, and everybody was nice to
me. I got some people I know up there, already."
New London coach Jack Cochran believes Reed wil
flourish as a Gator.
"For what he can do," Cochran said, "the offense fith~
him perfect."
Reed will hope to find success in an offensively geared
system that has paid dividends for Tim Tebow.
As a quarterback who can take it and run with his 4.5-
second 40-yard dash time, Reed seems to fit the Tebow
mold.
Relax. Reed doesn't have to be hailed as the next
Tebow. He wouldn't dream of it.
"I don't want to play like anybody," Reed said. "I want
to play like myself."

of the Week award, the league announced


out of reach.
Coach Amanda Butler said UF's
defense made the difference as the
Gators held the Dolpjhins to 23.5
percent shooting, UF's best field
goal defense in l3 years.
"Our full-court defense we
really drew a lot of energy from
tonight, and it didn't allow us to
relax," she said. "To be able to hold
a team as dynamic and versatile as
Jacksonville to 18 points in one half'
I just felt really good about where
we were at defensively."
It was quite a contrast to Friday's
loss to Florida Gulf Coast, when the
Gators allowed 45 points in the first
half and 43 in the second.
Butler was disappointed with
the way her team closed out the
first half, and she addressed that
topic at halftime.
"I don't know that I said things
that would necessarily calm them
down because I don't think we're
Our best when we're calm," Butler
said. "We're our best when we're
the aggressor."
The Gators appeared to be on
their way to a blowout early on,
building the big lead midway
through the first half.
UF shot the lights out at the start,
and not just during the game.
After the Gators' pregame in-
troductions, the lights remained off
for about 10 minutes, delaying the
tip-off.
It was a sign of things to come
as UP opened the game shooting
7 of 8 from the field and outscored
the Dolphins 19-3 in the first five
minutes.
The Gators eventually cooled off
and allowed Jacksonville to close
the first half and open the second
on a 25-6 run to cut the lead to
38-37.
That's when UF got hot again
and went up by as many as 27.
Jacksonville downed the Gators
last season, 75-64, in the teams' only
other meeting.
"I told the team that our goal is
to be aggressive," said guard Sha
Brooks, who added 14 second-half
points to spark the rout and fin-
ished with a team-high 16. "If we
come out and be aggressive then
we'll do our part, and it showed
tonight."


the UF women's basketball team
did in a big way.
After letting a 20-point, first-half
lead slip away to a 1-point advan-
tage early in the second half, the
Gators (1-1) made a statement in
claiming a 74-51 win against the
Dolphins.
UF answered the call by going
on a 26-3 run and putting the game
