Amendment would legalize discrimination


Sexuality, gender identity removed


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Staff Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org

Gainesville voters will soon decide whether
to amend the city's discrimination policy amid
controversy.
The city election will be held on March 24,


and the ballot will include a proposal, Amend-
ment 1, to remove local anti-discrimination
protections. Instead state-level protections
would apply.
Amendment 1 supporters claim the vote
will decide if male sexual predators will con-
tinue to have access to public areas designated
as women-only, like bathrooms.


For those who oppose the amendment, the
future of civil rights in Gainesville is at stake,
in particular the rights of transgender, lesbian,
gay and bisexual people.
The amendment would nul-
Local lify Chapter 8 of the Gainesville
News Code of Ordinances, titled "Dis-
crimination."
Instead, protections would be provided by
the Florida Civil Rights Act at the state level,
which outlaws discrimination based on race,


color, creed, religion, gender, national origin,
age, handicap, marital or family status.
In effect, this would remove protected sta-
tus for transgender, lesbian, gay and bisexual
Gainesville residents and loosen protections
for other classes.
The amendment would also prevent the
city from creating any new protected statuses.
The objective and impact of this amend-
ment is heavily contested in Gainesville.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Problems arise


during elections


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Political party supporters
were out in full force on Tues-
day to pull students to the polls
on the first day of Student Gov-
ernment elections. However, the
day was not without conflict.
Although votes were not
counted at the day's end, SG Su-
pervisor of Elections Dan Siegel
said he expected voter turnout
was comparable to fall elections,
which racked up about 5,000
votes on the first day.
Voting continues today from
8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
While candidates in compet-
ing parties were pleased with
student turnout, partisan bick-
ering reached new heights after
the Orange and Blue Party aired
commercials Monday and Tues-
day night through Cox Commu-
nications' cable services.
The commercials, which can


be viewed on YouTube, criticize
the Unite Party and its executive
candidates. The three commer-
cials, which cost $702, appeared
on Cartoon Network, MTV and
Comedy Central between the
hours of 10 p.m. and midnight.
In one commercial, Jordan
Johnson, presidential candidate
of the Unite Party, appears, say-
ing he does not "have to follow
state laws."
The video was recorded
during an Elections Comission
meeting earlier this semester.
But Johnson said he was mis-
represented in the ad.
"I promised a clean cam-
paign to talk about the issues
and qualifications of the candi-
dates," Johnson said. "In return,
I am seeing professionally made
attack ads against me for state-
ments taken out of context."
But Orange and Blue Party
Sen. Sam Miorelli said he didn't

Obama: U.S. troops in Iraq to be removed by August 2010
WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama plans to remove
all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by August of next year, administration
officials said Tuesday, ending the war that helped define his upstart
presidential campaign.
The withdrawal plan could help Obama turn his attention to an-
other campaign pledge: Deploying more troops to Afghanistan, a re-
gion he calls the central front in the war on terrorism. The timetable is
a compromise. Removing people equipment presents logistical difficul-
ties. Some commanders and advisers worry that security gains could
backslide in Iraq if troops are brought out too soon, while others think
the bulk of U.S. combat work is long since done.

Man arrested after chase
A Gainesville man was ar-
rested Monday after trying to hit
a Gainesville Police officer with
his car.
After being stopped by an of-
ficer for a traffic violation, Terry
Lee, 26, told GPD Ofc. Mose
Rochelle he didn't do anything
wrong and restarted his vehicle.
When Rochelle told Lee to
stop the car, the man in the pas-
senger seat dug in his pocket,
prompting Rochelle to call for
backup, the GPD report stated.
According to the report, Lee
reversed his 1993 silver Mercury

in attempt to pin Rochelle against
his patrol car.
"I was in great fear of my life as
I dove out of the vehicle's path,"
Rochelle said. "If I would have not
jumped out of the way I would
have been killed."
Lee drove away, and Rochelle
chased him in his patrol car.
The chase continued across East
University Avenue, up Northeast
Waldo Road and north on North-
east 11th Street where Lee crashed
his Mercury into the fence at 1102
NE Fifth Place.
Lee then got out of the car and
ran into a nearby wooded area
where he was caught by an Ala-
chua County Sheriff's office dog.
During a search of Lee's car, of-
ficers found 0.5 grams of crack co-
caine that was packaged for street
sale.
Lee was charged with four
felonies and two misdemeanors
including attempted murder, pos-
session of a controlled substance
with intent to sell and flee or at-
tempt to elude a police officer.
"This man attempted to drive
over apolice officer to avoid getting
caught for such a small amount of
narcotics," Kameg said.

Over 1,400 flood


I HOP for free food


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
More than 1,400 people flocked
to IHOP Tuesday to get their three
free buttermilk pancakes in cel-
ebration of National Pancake Day.
The restaurant chain held the
event for the fourth year in a row,
encouraging customers to make a
donation to the Children's Miracle
Network at Shands Children's
Hospital.
The waiting time reached a
height of 20 minutes, with 15 to 20
parties listed at a time. Even dur-
ing a midday slowdown, servers
brought waters in Styrofoam to-go
cups because clean glasses were
unavailable.
Tony Pignone, one of two assis-


tant managers on duty since 4 a.m.,
said he thought he saw lots of bills
going into the giant, cardboard
collection box by the entrance.
"We're trying to way outdo last
year," he said. "I think we're going
to well outdo $800."
Last year, the IHOP on South-
west 13th Street served more than
1,000 visitors and raised $781.
Scott Amerman and Troy
Wolfer, both junior-level students
at UF, said they came primarily to
enjoy the giveaways.
"We heard about free pan-
cakes." said Wolfer. "It's all about
free pancakes."
Still, the two didn't hesitate to
order more food.
"It's kind of cheap to go and
just get nothing," Amerman said.


ON CAMPUS

Students meet with Machen


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
For students who wanted to know what's up
with the economy's effect on UF, the Weaver Hall
basement was the place to be Tuesday evening.
UF President Bernie Machen spoke to about
50 students at the third installment of a meet-and-
greet trek across the UF campus.
In an interview before the question-and-answer
session, Machen said his collaboration with the
Inter-Residence Hall Association was formed dur-
ing summer when both sides realized he wasn't in
touch with students.
The meet-and-greets were created with the in-
tent of reaching out to on-campus residents, though
off-campus students are also encouraged to attend.
"On-campus students are special," Machen said.
"They provide a unique part of campus life."
IRHA President Jonathan Sheffield said the fo-
rum was designed to be friendly and low-key.
"It really depends on both parties wanting to
talk to each other," he said.
The forum lasted about 45 minutes, sandwiched
between one-on-one time with Machen and stu-
dents who wished to shake his hand, introduce
themselves or pose for photos.
Machen suggested the forum's focus be on the


economy, though he called the event "just a conver-
sation about what's on students' minds."
Most of the questions were about how budget
cuts would affect departments and programs.
While Machen referred students to the deans of
their colleges for more specific information, he said
the university would do everything in its power
to keep scholarship money and individual college
funding.
Josh Perry, a UF junior ma-
joring in Chinese and English,
said Tuesday was his second
time attending a Machen forum,
which was essentially more of
the same.
Perry said while Machen did
Machen a good job of being interested in
student concerns, many of his
answers were vague and unhelpful.
"Am I satisfied? No," he said. "I'd still like to
know what's going on next year."
Machen said UF will publish a report mid-April
on the changes each college would make if its bud-
get is slashed by 10 percent.
"At that point everyone is gonna weigh in, and
that's what we want to happen," he said.
In May, UF will find out how much state fund-
ing the university will receive.

SG fights for cut programs


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer
A resolution was passed unanimously by
Student Senate on Tuesday night urging UF's
administration to save the Korean and Vietnam-
ese programs in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. The programs will be eliminated in
May.
Seven students who will be personally af-
fected by the program cuts stopped by to ask
senators for their support.
Gator Party Sen. Megan Vu, the author of the
resolution, said UF is currently the only univer-
sity in Florida that offers these programs. She
said the diversity of UF's Student Body and fac-
ulty will decrease once these classes are cut.
Two professors will lose their jobs as a result,
she said.
Vu said UF first decided to cut the programs
in June after a $47 million budget cut was made
across Florida's state universities, adding that
students and teachers protested in response to


C0 -" ft.of


the programs' eliminations.
She said Joe Glover, then-interim dean of
CLAS, was unresponsive to their complaints.
Vu said she met with current CLAS Dean
Paul D'Anieri during fall to discuss other op-
tions that could be taken and to ask why the
programs were cut.
"The answer he gave me was vague and un-
clear," she said.
Vu said she does
Election not expect the reso-
lution to produce
magic results.
"It's highly un-
likely they'll overturn their decision and there
will suddenly be money," she said. "I just hope
there will be open discussion and they will take
students seriously."
Still, Vu said she was encouraged by sena-
tors' enthusiastic support of the resolution.
"It's been a long day of campaigning, but we
still have the heart to come and work toward
important issues," she said.

Voters will decide fate of controversial discrimination amendment


AMENDMENT, from page 1

Citizens for Good Public Policy, the group
that proposed the amendment, seeks to re-
move the Equal Access to Places of Public Ac-
commodations article under Chapter 8.
The article gives transgender people the
right to use whichever restroom fits their gen-
der identity, among other provisions.
Transgendered people feel that their gen-
der, man or woman, is at odds with their bio-
logical sex and express this through dress, be-
havior and, sometimes, by undergoing sexual
reassignment surgery.
Sexual predators, claiming to be transgen-
dered, could abuse the article and use it to
scope out public restrooms for victims, said
Jim Gilbert, a spokesman for Citizens for Good
Public Policy.
"This is about the safety of Gainesville citi-
zens, of my wife and child," he said.
However, once a group receives protected
status it is unconstitutional to remove specific
protections, which are considered discrimina-
tion as decided by the Supreme Court case
Romer v. Evans.
Therefore, the amendment was written to
remove the whole discrimination chapter, not
just the equal access article.
The rights of lesbian, gay and bisexual peo-
ple, enacted a decade ago, are not a target of
the amendment, he said.
"I would consider that collateral damage,"


he said.
Gilbert believes that the Gainesville City
Commission is not trying to prevent discrimi-
nation as much as is trying to look like a lead-
ing progressive city in America, which is why
the amendment prohibits additional provi-
sions from being made, he said.
"Amendment 1 will prevent such social ex-
perimentation in the future," he said.
But Equality is Gainesville's Business, an
anti-amendment group, has a different take.
To them, the issue is about civil rights, not
sexual predators, said Shelbi Day, spokes-
woman for Equality is Gainesville's Business.
The amendment will take away rights from
citizens while doing nothing to protect them
from sexual predators, according to Day.
Judy Best, a volunteer for Equality is
Gainesville's Business, feels the ordinance
couldn't be abused by sexual predators.
"That's a legal matter, but this is all about
discrimination," she said. "It's always been."
For Zoe Falcone, a Gainesville male-to-fe-
male transgendered person, the amendment
could affect important life decisions.
Falcone is a UF botany major and is consid-
ering graduate school in Gainesville.
But the charter amendment, along with
state Amendment 2, which banned civil
unions in Florida last year, makes Falcone feel
that transgenders are unwanted in Florida.
"If this amendment passes, I'll be on the
first plane out of here once I graduate," she
said.


The proposed amendment is a result of the overweight, said Jeanna Mastrodicasa, a city

Obama's speech calls

on Americans for change

While the path will not be easy, President Barack Obama
outlined a clear-cut plan seeking to remedy the current ills af-
fecting America.
In his powerful State of the Nation speech to Congress,
Obama stated early on that his policies will mark a clear sepa-
ration from the past, as both the government and the citizens
of the United States must be more responsible as they move
forward.
In outlining his recovery plan, Obama remarked that he
does not believe in bigger government, but rather in acting
boldly and wisely to ensure the long-term success of the coun-
try. He stood firmly behind his first major course of action in
the passage of the stimulus package, adding that the failure
to act would have cost countless citizens jobs and prohibited
95 percent of Americans from receiving a tax cut. Addition-
ally, he spoke of a tax credit for college students enabling
millions to pay forfour years of higher education without ac-
cumulating endless debt.
The key focus under Obama's direction to right the econ-
omy was directed to the everyday hardworking Americans.
Stating, "Slowly but surely, confidence will return and our
economy will recover," Obama offered the nation a look at the
harsh uphill battle that America will face, but with hope of a
chance to once again thrive. Simply put, there is no overnight
quick fix but rather a series of long-term investments that will
lead to new jobs and increased competition on the global mar-
ket.
Obama went on to tout the importance of Recovery.gov -
a Web site that shows Americans where stimulus money is be-
ing spent, allowing for a sense of transparency that rarely ex-
ists in the federal government. Making sure to hit on the credit
crisis, Obama stated that it affects everyone, but that Ameri-
cans can rest assured that their money and insurance are safe.
In his mind, credit acts as the lifeblood of the economy en-
abling citizens to purchase vehicles and homes and start busi-
nesses with the loans. While Obama admitted that the stimu-
lus package is just the first step in correcting the economy, he
was more than prepared to provide Congress with a laundry
list calling attention the need to focus on energy, health care
and education.
With energy, he emphasized a dedication to finding a fuel
source that is not only clean and renewable but also profitable.
Calling for legislation to focus attention on increased research
in the field, Obama announced a commitment of $15 billion to
double renewable energy sources.
Obama addressed the importance of health care by talking
about how many small businesses were forced to close and big
corporations left no choice but to lay off workers due to rising
costs of insurance. Speaking with conviction, Obama proud-
ly proclaimed that more had been accomplished in the past
30 days than the past decade to create important changes to
health care. Much to the enthusiasm of the audience, Obama
concluded his discussion on the subject by demanding a cure
for cancer as well as ensuring health care for all.
The final major focus area of his speech dealt with educa-
tion stating that a lack of knowledge is a prescription for
economic decline. Under his direction, Obama wants to en-
sure that every child in America has access to the best edu-
cation possible. In perhaps his most poignant remark of the
evening, Obama spoke candidly to the many students across
the country who dropped out of school.
"It's not just quitting on yourself; you're quitting on your
country."
A stoic, if not sobering, account of the realities of the state
of America, Obama's speech provided a semblance of hope for
the masses desperately seeking any hint at economic upturn.

Conan's move will shake up late-night


onan O'Brien hung up his invisible strings Friday
after a 16-year-long run of "Late Night with Conan
O'Brien." This is a part of NBC's move to shake up
its late-night lineup to save some dough.
The game of television show host musical chairs will
involve O'Brien taking over "The Tonight Show," Jimmy
Fallon hosting "Late Night," and Jay Leno moving to his
own 10 p.m. talk show. In pushing late night talk shows
into the territory of prime-time programming, NBC can
cut back on its dramas, which cost the network millions
more to make per episode.
Even if it is to decrease the bottom line, this shuffle of
hosts is a clear sign that the era of late-night television
isn't ending any time soon. People need comedians will-
ing to be humorous for the simple sake of humor more
than ever, but what does this mean for America's favorite
swoop-haired Tarja Halonen lookalike?
O'Brien has amassed his very own cult following.
He's just such an awkward buffoon that some can't help
but adore his absurdist humor. He has come full circle:
O'Brien is so untcool that he has redefined the meaning
of the word "cool." Honestly, how many people can pull
on a lever and have clips from "Walker, Texas Ranger"
magically appear?
With his endearing self-deprecation, O'Brien constant-
ly announced to his audience that "Late Night" just wasn't
that good. They obviously begged to differ, some of them
waiting hours just to get standby tickets to the final taping
of his show. That shows true commitment to the "humor-
tastical wonderment" of the Cone Bone.
Does this mean that with a new time slot, Conan O'Brien
will be forced to mature? The world caught a glimpse of a
more humbled, thankful, almost dare I say it grown-

up Consie at the end of his last
show. Could this indicate a shift
in his television personality as
he makes the move to "The To-
night Show?"
Say it ain't so, Conando!
O'Brien's shift to a more
mainstream time slot is leading
some to speculate that he will
have to give up certain charac-
ters that made "Late Night" un-


mistakably his.
"Late Night" was groundbreaking in that over the
course of 2,725 episodes, it featured a crying Nazi in the
audience, O'Brien zip lining across the studio while don-
ning a steam-spouting helmet to save our sixteenth presi-
dent from being assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, and a
bear that... well, you know.
While O'Brien takes his house band, the Max Weinberg
7, along to its new home in Burbank, it may just be that the
only change in the show's dynamic will be that the censors
will not take as kindly to a crotch-fondling bear or the rac-
ist, misogynist ghost from the heyday of radio who was
murdered by the League of Women Voters.
In that case, let us welcome a new era of ridiculous
characters that make up O'Brien's entourage. Whether
O'Brien changes or not, he will indeed be judged for it,
and the judgment will come swiftly.
Good luck, you long-limbed, Irish wag. And stay true
to the slightly creepy, beady-eyed fool you are. We'll see
you in June.

Ocala 'Rainbow Gathering' proves hippies no longer exist


Tt took me one 5-mile walk in 20-degree
weather in the pitch black through the Oc-
ala National Forest for me to kill my idols,
or for them to nearly kill me.
My newspaper adviser in high school
would often regale me with stories of tran-
scendentalists and "The Rainbow People," as
they're called, who would retreat into nation-
al parks for national and regional gatherings
for periods of peace, reflection and an escape
from consumerism and corporatism. When I
heard they were doing a long stint only an
hour or so away, I decided, after much delib-
eration, to experience it first hand.
With thoughts of "On the Road" in mind, I
expected to see people truly living outside of
the status quo. Intellectuals who thought the
"real world" was not for them and made a
conscious effort to live outside or above it.
What I found was both disillusioning and
frightening.
Hippies do not exist anymore. In their
stead, I found an array of felons in hiding,
psychologically disturbed youth, feral chil-
dren and homeless teenagers with nowhere
else to be but in the forest.
I had experiences with some of them
previously. I had met a band of train hop-


pers about a month before who had told me
more about Rainbow gatherings. When I met
them, I was filled with the romantic notion of
responsibility-free traveling. I thought that I
was talking to people like Kerouac, who had
the gumption to set foot across the country
and discover the spoils of America for them-
selves.
As that night progressed, my illusions
about who I was talking to disappeared. I was
not talking to a bunch of kids from square-
shaped states who decided that suburban
life was fraught with disappointment. I was
talking to misfits who, even if they tried their
very best to stick out a normal life, would
never meet the cut. They were compulsive
liars, thieves, vagabonds and winos.
Wasn't the point of hippies supposed to
be of merit? Weren't they striving for some-
thing, whether it be the end to Vietnam, a re-
volt against the confinement of the 1950s or
god, anything else?
There were some upsides of the excursion
(I was able to trade "shiny rocks" for drugs,
there were free pancakes and I got some ex-
ercise) but there were mostly downsides (I
got called a yuppie upward of 20 times for
"having parents," I almost got hypothermia


and heat stroke in
the same 12-hour
span, and I was
almost raped and
dismembered by
a boy who insist-
ed that I go out to
Allie Conti his "ninja camp"
letters@alligator.org with him deep
into the prairie).
But the biggest
downside of all
was that I realized that hippies, or beats, or
whatever, no longer exist.
No one once tried to talk to me about
world issues. No one considered what they
were doing revolutionary. No one wrote or
made art (I did not meet a single person who
had heard of "journalism."). They were there
out of necessity. I could leave at any time, and
I did the next afternoon.
Maybe I am a yuppie (as soon as I came
home I took a long shower, took an extreme
amount of Flintstones vitamins, and gorged
myself on sushi), but at least I have a sense of
who I am and where I belong. That one night
destroyed my qualms with living inside of a
system. What is the alternative? In today's


world there is none. The best we can do is to
try to change the system from inside. There
is no hope in overturning anything if we just
ignore it by living deep inside the woods.
I will always wonder what became of the
train-hopper kids I spent a long night with
and about the kids I met at the Rainbow gath-
ering. I hope they get out of that system be-
cause it is far worse than the one of which I
am a part. But I know they won't. Living in
that system is a drain. Once you're in it for
more than a month, you can never assimilate
yourself in what is called "the real world."
Once you have nothing but shiny rocks and
nothing more than an elementary school edu-
cation, you're pretty much fucked.
But then again, what do they know of the
world they abandoned? The world that they
perceived as unbendingly cruel? Nothing.
And for the most part, I wish to know nothing
more of the world they call their own. And
that's where I'll leave it, until I meet another
group of kids who can temporarily make me
abandon my own set of values and make me
question my own self worth.
Because really, what else is there?

sophomore. Her column appears weekly.

Graduate students should be rewarded for dedication to UF


T his past Friday, President
Bernie Machen declared
that UF needs to transform
itself in order to become one of
the nation's top public universi-
ties. Machen said that the plan
is to "focus more on graduate
education and research." As co-
president of Graduate Assistants
United (GAU), our graduate em-
ployee labor union, I welcome the
president's new vision if and
only if his focus on graduate
education includes support for all
departments, students and gradu-
ate assistants. Indeed, graduate
assistants need additional help
and focus these days, especially in
this difficult economic climate.
As workers for the university,
graduate assistants do the bulk of
the teaching and research labor.
Studies have shown that across


the board, graduate instructors at
UF score even higher on annual
undergraduate student evalua-
tions than tenure and term fac-
ulty when it comes to availability,
respect, stimulation and overall
performance. Graduate students
work hard for UF; they believe in
quality education and share in the
president's desire to create a bet-
ter university.
If Machen is serious about
turning some of the university's
focus on graduate students, we
also expect him to respect the val-
ue we provide for the university.
This means helping graduate as-
sistants during these tough times.
GAU has been bargaining with
the administration since last May.
While we were able to negotiate
some important new additions to

up to our last bargaining session,
the administration made it clear

rhetoric, UF does not prioritize
graduate student labor. I want to

energy channels of the body, acu-
puncture practitioners are able to
relieve stress, increase memory
retention, promote mental clar-
ity and boost the immune sys-
tem. All this without the use of


drugs! They use Chinese herb
prescriptions, the hair-thin acu-
puncture nee-
dies, Oriental
bodywork
(massage
techniques),
and cupping (to draw out toxins
or get energy moving).
Students at Dragon Rises Col-
lege have cause to take advantage


of their own medicine! They have
3230 hours of coursework to earn
their Master of Acupuncture and
Oriental Medicine degree, and a
national licensing exam. As part
of this training, a student intern
sees 350 patients, under the su-
pervision of licensed acupuncture
practitioners.
In Gainesville, Dragon Rises
College of Oriental Medicine offers


the public low-cost treatments in
the student clinic. Discounts for
UF students are available. The
college also has speakers avail-
able for community education.

HEALTH QUESTaONS:

Get informed about your health-related issues


Skin Health
1.Why should I be concerned about skin can-
cer?
Skin cancer is the most common type of
cancer in the United State, which can affect
anyone regardless of skin color. About one mil-
lion Americans get it each year. Considering
that we live in Florida, always remember to use
sunscreen so that you are protected. The Stu-
dent Health Care Center also has regular mole
screenings. To learn more or to sign up for the


next mole screening, call GatorWell Health Pro-
motion Services at 392-1161 ext 4281.
Nutrition
2. Why is breakfast so important?
A healthy breakfast is extremely important.
It refuels your body and gives you the neces-
sary energy in order to start the day, which will
ultimately allow you to perform better at school
or work. Your breakfast should typically consist
of a variety of foods including fruits and veg-
etables, grains, dairy, and protein. Try grabbing


a cup of yogurt and some fruit as you head out
the door.
3. Are dietary supplements better than food?
All the necessary vitamins and minerals you
need are found in the foods you eat, if you ob-
tain a balanced diet. If you are concerned that
you aren't getting all the nutrients you need, a
nutritionist at GatorWell would be a great re-
source for you.
4.What are some healthy snacks to eat "on
the go?"


As a student, it is hard to always find time
to cook or even eat a decent meal. Here are
some healthy snacks you can eat when you are
in a rush, whether it is for breakfast or a snack.
Remember that snacks high in fiber and pro-
tein will keep you feeling full for a longer period
of time. Trail mix, yogurt, chopped fruit, string
cheese, granola bars, peanut butter sandwich-
es, nuts, whole grain cereals, carrots, bananas
and apples.

FAQ: health and fitness for the college lifestyle


HEALTH, from page 10

Exercise
5. Do you have any tips on how to make exer-
cise more fun?
There are various ways that you can have
more fun while exercising. Dancing is one way
to spice up your mundane exercise routine. You
can also try bicycling, basketball, and swimming.
The best part is you will be burning plenty of cal-
ories without actually noticing it. You also have
the option of attending group fitness classes at
either the Student Recreation Center or South-
west Recreation Center.
6.Is it better to eat before or after exercise?
Eating before or after exercising are both
great strategies for performance, fitness, and
health, but the decision lies in how you eat since
it depends on your duration and rigor of exer-
cise. Remember that eating is very important be-
cause it fuels your muscles before you exercise
or refuels them after you exercise.
Sexual Health
7. Can I get tested for HIV without health in-
surance?
The Alachua County Health Department
(334-7960, ext. 79621) and the Student Health
Care Center (392-1161) are great resources to
get tested. At the health department, there is a
sliding scale fee system, and there is an option-
al $20 fee for anonymous testing. The Student
Health Care Center has a $30 fee. A rapid test is
available with results in 30 minutes, but may re-
quire confirmatory testing. Planned Parenthood
(377-0881) also administrates free, confidential
HIV testing on Wednesdays 9am-12pm.


8. What are some benefits of Gardasil, the
HPV vaccine?
Gardasil is a vaccine that prevents women
from getting cervical cancer and the four most
common HPV types; two cause genital warts
and two are the precursors to cervical cancer.
The shot is taken in three increments and is
considered ideal if taken before engaging in any
type of sexual activity, but you can still take it
afterwards. However, the vaccine will not cure
an existing infection.
Mental Health
9. How many hours of sleep are enough?
For most adults, seven to eight hours of
sleep is sufficient for academic productivity. Re-
member, that it is important to get enough sleep
because it helps you perform better the follow-
ing day, reduce stress, and boost your immune
system. For more information, visit the sleep
podcast at HealthyGators.hhp.ufl.edu.
10. I've been feeling really depressed lately.
Where can I go to talk to someone?
The Mental Health Services Department
at the Student Health Care Center and the UF
Counseling Center at Peabody Hall are great re-
sources. Some of the services include individual
and group counseling as well as biofeedback.
These services can help you address personal
problems in addition to school related issues.
ATOD
11. Is it safer to smoke hookah than ciga-
rettes?
It is a myth that smoking hookah or a water
pipe is safer than cigarettes. It is just as danger-
ous. Actually, hookah smokers may inhale more
tobacco than cigarette smokers in one sitting


due to the massive volumes of smoke they in-
hale. A typical hookah session lasts about 45
minutes, which is much longer than a cigarette
break. You also get more nicotine from hookah,
which leads to increased risk of addiction. Re-
member that hookah still has numerous toxins
within it that can lead to health complications
such as lung cancer, heart disease, and other
health complications.
12. What do I do if I think my friend has alco-
hol poisoning?
Alcohol poisoning is a serious consequence
of consuming large amounts of alcohol in a short
period of time. It is extremely important to know
the signs and symptoms since it can happen to
anyone. A person's blood alcohol concentration
(BAC) can continue to rise even after passing out
or sleeping. It is important not to assume that
the person will be fine by going to sleep. Some
of the signs and symptoms of alcohol poison-
ing include: Mental confusion, stupor, or coma,
vomiting, seizures, slow breathing (fewer than
eight breaths per minute), irregular breathing
(10 seconds or more between breaths), hypo-
thermia (low body temperature), bluish skin
color, and paleness.
Call 911 if someone is showing these signs
and don't leave the person alone!
Safety
13. I get out of class late at night. What are
some tips to stay safe?
You should always try to be aware of your
surroundings. For example, you should avoid the
use of earphones. Walk briskly but confidently,
and always keep your car keys ready to avoid
digging through your bag to find them. Another


alternative to walking is calling 392-SNAP for a
ride anywhere on campus. Always remember to
stay safe by wearing something reflective so you
are readily seen by others. For more information
on how to stay safe on campus go to the Healthy
Gators 2010 website.
Cold and Flu Prevention
14. I got the flu shot. Can I still catch the flu?
The flu shot cannot give you the flu. Instead,
it reduces your chances of getting the illness.
Other ways to reduce your chances are to wash
your hands regularly, cover your cough, and if
possible, avoid close contact with other individu-
als who may be sick. Remember that it is impor-
tant to get vaccinated every year.
15. How do I know the difference between a
cold and the flu?
It can be hard to tell the difference between
a cold and the flu since both have similar symp-
toms, but flu symptoms are worse than a cold.
You usually have higher fevers with flu that can
last 3-4 days, and the flu affects your whole body.
You may feel extreme fatigue, achy muscles, dry
cough and sore throat.
16 .1 seem to get sick often. Is there some-
thing wrong with my immune system?
There are various ways to boost your im-
mune system. Believe it or not, getting a full
night's sleep can increase your immunity since
it is connected to the balance of hormone levels.
In addition, you can drink more water, eat a vari-
ety of nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables,
and exercise more. Taking a basic daily multivita-
min/mineral supplement, avoiding excess sugar,
alcohol, and cigarettes are also ways to give your
immune system a boost.

Final three games of season pose test for team without secure Tourney spot


HOOPS, from page 19

Whether it was Thornton,
Temple or Tasmin Mitchell (12
points), UF didn't have the am-
munition to keep up.

well toward the end," freshman
guard Erving Walker said. "I

Temple follow it up with a mid- came with more energy," Hodge


said.
"We just have to execute at the
end and play hard."
With the win, LSU clinched at
least a share of the SEC regular-
season title.
As for the Gators, this loss
makes Selection Sunday a whole
lot more interesting than they
would like, as they are not a lock


for the NCAA Tournament just
yet.
It's not going to get any easier
either, as two of UF's final three
regular-season games are against
SEC East contenders Tennessee
and Kentucky.
The third is a trip to Missis-
sippi State, the second place team
in the West.


EVAN, from page 19


Walsh, after claiming three Super Bowls in
eight years with the San Francisco 49ers,
retired from the NFL after the third.
But Pittsburgh Steelers great Chuck
Knoll coached his team to four Super Bowl
victories from 1974-79 and then stayed on
to coach the team until 1991.
Maybe Meyer is more in Knoll's breed
than Walsh's, but we won't know for
years.
There's a great video on The Onion


called "Tom Coughlin Retires From Fam-
ily To Spend More Time With Team" that
really highlights the ludicrous amount of
time coaches spend with their teams. As
the title implies, the video jokes about
New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin
"retiring" from home to spend even more
time on the football field.
The video includes this gem from a fic-
tional press release written by Coughlin:
"The time constraints imposed by his fam-
ily were distracting from his responsibili-
ties as a football coach."


And that's really how it is in some plac-
es coaches are expected to go team first,
family second, sleep if they can squeeze it
in.
Meyer strikes me as the kind of man
who loves his family too much to keep this
up for 20 years, or even 10 more, as Ma-
chen thinks.
After every game, he's on the field with
his wife, Shelley, his arm around her as
they sing the UF fight song.
His son, Nate, sat on his lap during the
press conference after the Southeastern


Conference Championship Game win in
December.
And during a press conference in Mi-
ami before the national title game this
year, Meyer had something to say about
coaches who are in this business forever
like Penn State's Joe Paterno.
"There will be no chance I'll be do-
ing this into my 70s or 80s," Meyer said.
"Zero. None."
Don't be shocked if, six years from now,
Meyer decides he won't even be doing this
into his 50s.


Gators blast Eagles for 12 runs at plate with help from fresh faces

ence for as many people as possible in his bullpen so they
will be ready when needed in more pressure-filled situa-
tions.
"There is nothing a coach can do for a player that ex-
perience will give them," O'Sullivan said. "Until they get
out here when it means something, there really is no way
a coach can teach that."
While the pitchers needed only 1 run of support, the
batters did not want to be shown up. Five Gators came
through with at least two hits each, and another five had


two RBIs each. Senior left fielder Avery Barnes led the
way with three hits and two RBIs in just five innings.
UF has now totaled 31 runs in its first four games, but
the Gators have yet to record a home run this season.
"There is nothing a coach can do for a player
that experience will give them."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Just like the pitching staff, young hitters got a chance
to see the field for an extended period of time. Freshmen
Tyler Thompson, Jerico Weitzel, Daniel Pigott and Ben


McMahan took the field for the Gators late in the game.
Pigott and Weitzel both notched their first hits, and
Pigott finished with two RBIs to add to his two hits.
UF will finish its two-game series against Eastern
Michigan tonight at 6:30. Freshman Anthony DeSclafani
will get the nod on the mound, and he will also be limited
to 50-60 pitches in his first start.
KEATING BRINGS HOME HONOR: UF senior pitcher Patrick
Keating was named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher

Keating took home the award after pitching seven in-

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Thornton's 32 lead Tigers over Gators


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

BATON ROUGE, La. Maybe Mar-
cus Thornton had an extra helping of
Wheaties on Tuesday morning.
Whether it was Wheaties, an extra nap
or maybe just a feeling that he had to step
up against a conference rival, it wasn't
helpful for the Gators.
While Nick Calathes was good, scor-
ing 12 points and dishing out six assists,
Thornton was better, as he scored 32
points while sinking six 3-pointers. The
senior guard led the No. 18 Tigers (24-
4, 12-1 Southeastern Conference) to an
81-75 win against the Gators at the Pete
Maravich Assembly Center on Tuesday
night.
The Gators (21-7, 8-5 SEC) had four
players score in double figures (Calathes,
Chandler Parsons, Walter Hodge and
Alex Tyus), but it was the big shots and
consistent scoring of Thornton and Gar-
rett Temple (21 points) that made the dif-
ference.
"We just played the best team in the
league on the road," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "LSU tonight was better
than us."
While UF kept it close for the vast ma-
jority of the game and even had a 41-
37 halftime lead LSU decided it had
enough with 9:07 left in the game.
That's when the Tigers went up by 7,
and they never looked back.
The closest the Gators would get was

within 3 points, but the game was never UF played one of its more complete
in doubt as Thornton then came back games of the year, but LSU simply had

"We could never really get over the
hump," Donovan said. SEE HOOPS, PAGE 18


Poovey makes impression in UF win


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

For someone who had not pitched in a
game in close to two years, Justin Poovey
showed very little rust.
The redshirt freshman threw four
shutout innings and allowed only two
hits in No. 24 UF's 12-0 win at home
against Eastern Michigan on Tuesday,
and he only left the game early due to the
pitch limit UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
set before the game Poovey tossed 57
pitches.
Poovey's success came from relying
more on his defense to get the outs rather
than on overpowering hitters.
"I pitch to contact, and our defense


played great," Poovey said. "We've had
good defense all year, so I just kept pour-
ing in strikes and let our defense work
behind me."
Although he had
reached his limit,
Poovey felt he still had
at least another inning
of work in him.
O'Sullivan expects
O'Sullivan Poovey's pitch count to
go up for his next out-
ing and is willing to use him this week-
end, but O'Sullivan was pleased with
Poovey's short debut.
"They all want to go one more, but
that is a good sign of a competitor,"
O'Sullivan said. "As a coach, you want
someone who wants to go one more."


Poovey exited the game with a 9-run
advantage, and O'Sullivan used the large
lead to get other young arms experience.
Freshman Will Jolin got two innings
of work in his second appearance of the
season, and fellow freshman Greg Larson
made his season debut in the ninth.
Junior lefty Tony Davis, who
O'Sullivan expects to be a go-to guy in
his bullpen, pitched the seventh inning,
and junior Chas Spottswood threw in a
game for the first time in his UF career.
The UF (4-0) bullpen combined for no
runs over five innings and allowed just
two hits. Only one hit all game for the
Eagles made it to the outfield.
O'Sullivan wants to get game experi-

Burnout from

Meyer would

not surprise

In an interview with The Orlan-
do Sentinel earlier this week,
UF president Bernie Machen
said he fears football coach Urban
Meyer will burn out eventually.
"I think what will happen to Ur-
ban is he won't go somewhere else,
he'll just burn out and quit," Ma-
chen told
*the Senti-
nel. "He'll
reach the
point he
can't do it
any lon-
Evan Drexler ger at the
The Drex Factor level he
edrexler@alligator.org demands
of himself.
Hopefully
it's not for 10 years."
After thinking about it for a few
days, it seems incredibly plausible
that Meyer could burn out trying
to sustain the high level of perfor-
mance he expects from himself and
his players every day.
Spending an entire season
merely interviewing and writing
about Meyer and the players each
day was time consuming enough.
But to be in the locker room, on the
practice field, staying up late every
night watching film?
There has to be a breaking
point.
There are horror stories from
around the NCAA and the NFL of
coaches sleeping in their offices,
working 100-plus-hour weeks and
seeing their families one day out of
seven.
The recruiting trail is as intense
as it has ever been, and Meyer and
his staff rarely get time off.
Sure, the thrill of victory and
the feeling of winning a national
championship have to be exhilarat-
ing, but after so many years, Meyer
could question if it's all worth it.
There are examples of coach-
es quitting on top, for sure. Bill
