'Scrubs' star speaks at UF

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Actor and film director Zach Braff ran
onto the stage with a Red Bull clutched
in his left hand Monday night, greeting
the crowd and pointing to his butt be-
fore planting it in a cushy armchair.
Braff, perhaps best known for his
role on the long-running TV series
"Scrubs," entertained a crowd of about
1,700 people in the Phillips Center for
the Performing Arts.
Brought by Jewish Awareness
Month and Accent, Student Govern-
ment's Speakers Bureau, Braff, was in-
terviewed by journalism master lecturer
Mike Foley about his career, childhood
and recent adventure to Israel about six
months ago.
"I love Israel," he said. "I don't think
it's just a Jew thing. The truth is it's an
amazing place. All the major religions
started there."
Braff, 33, who is the youngest of four
children, said he first discovered his
love for acting from a constant child-
hood desire to show off .
"I wanted to make my family laugh,"
he said. "I was pretty much as gay as
you can be without being attracted to
men. I love the theater, and I love mu-
sic."
In his first TV spot he starred in a
CBS special called "My Summer as a
Girl," where he dressed in drag.
"I was a horrible looking woman,"
he said.
It was still some time before he
was able to land the role of Dr. John
"J.D." Dorian on what-was-then NBC's John Lockett/Alligator
"Scrubs." Dorian on what-was-then NBC's Zach Braff, actor, writer and director, thanks the audience after be-
ing interviewed by UF Master Lecturer Mike Foley at the Phillips Cen-

RESEARCH

Jacksonville couple donates $21 million to UF medicine


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite possible future dips in state fund-
ing, UF has received a $21 million donation
from a Jacksonville couple for medical edu-
cation purposes and facilities.
Jerry and Judy Davis, both cancer survi-
vors, have given a record $20 million to UF's
College of Medicine to create the Jerry W.


and Judith S. Davis Cancer Endowment.
"We have excellent physicians at UF,"
said Jerry Davis, who was a patient at the
UF Shands Cancer Center. "We want to do
all we can to support them."
According to Dr. Joseph Simone, director
of UF's Shands Cancer Center, the endow-
ment will be used to recruit top doctors and
researchers to the university. It will also
help in developing programs to learn more


about specific cancers, such as lymphoma
and breast cancer.
"They're extremely generous people," Si-
mone said of the Davises. "They have strong
feelings about cancer and want to help elim-
inate or control the disease."
The Davises gave an additional $1 mil-
lion to the construction of the $388-million
Shands at UF Cancer Hospital, according to
Kim Rose, Shands spokeswoman.


Rose said the project is on budget, and
the hospital is still scheduled to open in No-
vember 2009.
According to the hospital's Web site, the
building will be 500,000 square feet with
192 private inpatient beds and a critical-care
center for emergency and trauma services.
According to Paul Robell, vice president
for development and alumni affairs, UF of-

Coast Guard got no SOS from 2 missing NFL players
TAMPA (AP) The Coast Guard says it has narrowed the search area
for two NFL players and another man whose overturned boat was found
off the Florida Gulf Coast. Coast Guard Capt. Timothy Close says the
search area is "substantially smaller," based on where they found the boat
and a survivor. Searchers previously covered 16,000 square miles.
Nick Schuyler was clinging to the boat about 35 miles off Clearwater.
The former USF player told rescuers that the boat was anchored when it
flipped Saturday evening in rough seas. He says the others aboard got
separated from the boat. The boat belongs to Oakland Raiders linebacker
Marquis Cooper. He, defensive lineman Corey Smith and former South
Florida player William Bleakley remained missing.

Legislators to


itemize cuts
By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@a Iligator org

The fat will hit the fire today in Tallahassee as state
lawmakers convene in the capitol for the start of the
spring legislative session.
The impending budget cuts that have probably
plagued the dreams of lawmakers and administrators
alike will finally begin to take shape, but UF still won't
know the size of its cut until the end of the session.
The state is facing a budget deficit that could be as
high as $5 billion, according to projec-
State tions.
News On top of that, with cash so tight this
year, UF was asked by the state and the
Board of Governors, which oversees Flor-
ida's 11 public universities, not to submit a state bud-
get request seeking funding for specific projects and
programs like it typically does, said UF spokeswoman
Janine Sikes.
Instead, UF has issued a list of six broad budget pri-
orities.
The priorities include passing the tuition bill that
would allow universities to raise tuition by up to 15
percent a year until they reach the national average,
minimizing budget cuts, and securing more funding
for the College of Medicine and for construction proj-
ects around campus.
UF also launched its Gators for Higher Education
Web site, gatorsforhighered.ufl.edu, on Wednesday
that explains the legislative priorities and asks UF's
faculty, staff, students, alumni and supporters to lobby
their legislators.

Two UF students robbed
In separate crimes, two UF
students were pushed down
and robbed late Friday night
and early Saturday morning.
At 11 p.m., a female student
was walking in the parking lot
of Royal Village Apartments,
710 S.W. Depot Ave., when a
black man pushed her to the
ground and stole her purse, said
Gainesville Police Department
spokesman Mike Schibuola.
He said although the K-9 unit
was not able to track the man
down, they found the woman's
purse a few blocks away with
all of its items missing.
There was a second mug-
ging at about 2 a.m. Sunday.
In the University Park Stu-
dios apartment complex, 1222
N.W. Eighth Ave., a white man
pushed a female UF student
onto the ground and stole her
purse, Schibuola said.
The man then got into the
passenger side of a light blue
or teal vehicle that police think
may be a Ford Ranger, he said.
"Right now, we don't know
if these crimes are related."
Schibuola said. "Although
the suspect descriptions don't
match up, the patterns of the
crimes are very similar."

'Forward-thinking' festival to benefit migrant workers


* FESTIVAL INCLUDES MORE THAN
140 BANDS.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Harsh Reality
Take a drive in any direction of Alachua
County, and it may be a shock.
Out in Alachua's blueberry fields, Plant
City's strawberry patches or the Immokalee
tomato fields, hundreds of migrant workers,
men and women, struggle each day to pro-
vide food and a future for themselves and
their children.
"It's always a good time to see what's be-
hind the curtain on how food gets to our ta-
bles," said Ryan Murphy, director of the Har-
vest of Hope Fest.
The three-day festival is a fundraiser for the
Harvest of Hope Foundation, a nonprofit or-
ganization in Gainesville that provides finan-
cial aid to migrant workers and their families
throughout the country.
During his UF graduate program, Murphy
spent two years with the foundation. Through
a program called Libros de Familia, Murphy
met with migrant workers and helped them
with their English-speaking skills.


The grassroots music festival will feature
four stages, turning out local and national rock
bands such as Against Me!, The National, Bad
Brains and Girl Talk.
The St. Johns County Fairgrounds' 38-acre
grassy pasture will be flooded with local ven-
dors, artisans and people who just want to
contribute.
"People just started donating what they can
to cut our costs," Murphy said. "Local grow-
ers are providing catering, some are donating
amps for the stages and others are screening
T-shirts for festival volunteers."
And with a carbon-neutral program, so-
lar generators and reasonably priced tickets,
Murphy said, the festival is as forward think-
ing as they come.
Gouge-Free Zone
On one Saturday afternoon, Ed Kellerman,
a UF lecturer and communications director of
the foundation, strapped a candy-apple red
motorcycle helmet to his head and sped over
to United Church of Gainesville to meet his
brother, Phil, at the Holistic Health Fair.
Under the front overhang, Phil sat by a
pullout table stacked with shiny metallic one-
pound Sweetwater Coffee bags a weekly
sales endeavor to make a few extra dollars
for the foundation with the help of the local
Gainesville growers.


The Kellermans emphasized the impor-
tance of buying local products for the festival
and especially at home.
"My wife goes to the farmers market each
week," said Phil, president of the foundation.
"If you don't care for your community, don't
blame me when it all dries up."
"Migrant farmers work extremely
hard for our well-being. It's the
least we can do."
Ryan Murphy
Harvest of Hope Fest director

Ed said the festival, which boasts more
than 140 bands, will allow musicians to get
more exposure, publicity to get more business
and prices to be reasonable for concert-goers.
At $19.50 for a single-day pass and $39.50
for the three-day weekend, he said they're not
duping anyone.
They call it the "gouge-free zone."
Primitive camping passes for three-day pa-
trons are only an extra $29.50 for four people.
Ticket sales increase $10 on the weekend of the
event.
Prices are low because hundreds volun-
teered to work at the festival, and dozens of


local organic vendors will donate food for the
bands.
Many vendors don't have big budgets for
advertising or the ability to reach out beyond
their stores.
"Since we're a grassroots organization, we
can use help wherever we find it," Ed said.
"It's a win-win for all of us."
And through a UF course in nonprofit
leadership and management, about 10 stu-
dents will assist Ed at the festival to fulfill their
public service requirements.
Gainesville's No Idea Records, the same
people behind The Fest last fall, began gather-
ing bands in November and headed a massive
promotional campaign for the benefit with
Southern Lovin' PR and Mutiny PR.
After the foundation received a $50,000
grant from the St. Johns Tourist Development
Council to promote and market the festival,
Murphy signed a three-year contract with
the fairgrounds. If all goes well, the organiza-
tion may see a few years of stable funds for
migrant families.
"Migrant farmers work extremely hard for
our well-being," Murphy said. "It's the least
we can do."

SPECIAL REPORT

New House bill expands guidelines for visiting Cuba

Cuban-Americans could visit more family, spend more money per day


By KATHRYN STOLARZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Ofelia Schutte's uncle was on his death-
bed in Cuba in 2006, but a U.S. law prohib-
ited her from being there for him.
Cuban-Americans like Schutte may
have more opportunities to visit family
under a new U.S. House of Representa-
tives bill that passed Wednesday.
If the wide-range spending bill becomes
a law, it will extend the list of family mem-
bers who Cuban-Americans are allowed
to visit in Cuba, and it will allow them to
visit once a year for an unlimited period. It
will also permit them to spend up to $170
per day on travel expenses.
Under the current policy put in place
by former President George W. Bush in
2004, Cuban-Americans can visit family
every three years for up to 14 days per
visit. They can spend up to $50 per day on
travel expenses.
If the propopsed bill becomes makes it
past the Senate, Cuban-Americans could
visit aunts, uncles and first cousins in ad-
dition to those they are currently allowed
to visit parents, grandparents, grand-
children, siblings, spouses and children.
The House bill, H.R. 1105, passed with
a vote of 245-178.
The U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote
on the bill today, and President Barack
Obama, who has been a proponent of eas-
ing restrictions with Cuba, will make the
final decision.
Carlos Frias, UF alumnus and author of


the memoir about his visit to Cuba entitled
"Take Me with You," said the proposed
bill would allow the Cuban-Americans of
this generation to know their roots.
"For the people who want and need to
see their close family, it really is a humani-
tarian measure," he said.
However, for Frias, visiting Cuba came
with mixed emotions.
Frias was nervous to approach his fa-
ther about a work assignment he had just
received in Cuba. This was because his
father, who had been jailed by Fidel Cas-
tro's government for political activism,
strongly opposed the idea of returning to
the country.
"For me and I think for many Cuban-
Americans of my generation, there's still
an ideological barrier," Frias said.
"I carry the history of my parents who
saw and endured terrible things. That may
not be how Cuba treated me, but it's how
Cuba treated them," he said.
Andrew Ruiz, president of the Cuban-
American Student Association at UF, said
a lot of members have visited their fami-
lies in Cuba.
He has never been to the country, but
he would like to see where his parents and
grandparents grew up.
However, his family doesn't want him
to visit, he said.
His grandfather told him it would be "a
slap in the face to them" to return while
the Castros are in power.
Carmen Diana Deere, director of the
Center for Latin American Studies at UF


and an expert on Cuba, said travel restric-
tions were imposed when the trade em-
bargo was placed on Cuba's government
under Fidel Castro in the 1960s.
The American government didn't want
visitors from the U.S. helping the Cuban
economy.

"It is often underrated how im-
portant it is to be able to hug a
person or touch a person or be
physically present with them when
you care about them."
Ofelia Schutte
Cuban-American


"That's the rationale, but it hasn't
worked," she said.
Instead, it slowed down the rate of eco-
nomic growth in the U.S. and made trade
more difficult.
"(The bill) is certainly positive because
the previous regulations were so restric-
tive that, in my opinion, it was ridiculous,"
she said.
Ofelia Schutte, who was born in Cuba
and has lived in the U.S. for almost 50
years, said that when Bush passed restric-
tions, "(it) was a huge violation of human
rights."
Schutte has second cousins in Cuba. Her
immediate family died or left the country
over the years, she said.
It's important to her to see her family,
not just communicate with them through


e-mail, she said.
"It is often underrated how important
it is to be able to hug a person or touch a
person or be physically present with them
when you care about them," she said.
UF freshman Shirley Rodriguez and
her mom, Maria Elena Crespo, agreed that
there is a need to spend time with the about
120 family members they have in Cuba.
Rodriguez and Crespo were born in
Cuba and have lived in the U.S. for about
13 years.
Crespo and Rodriguez have visited
Cuba together three times since they left.
Rodriguez said they wanted to go more
often, but they couldn't under law.
They visited in 2006, so they couldn't
return for the next two years to visit Cre-
spo's mother, who has thyroid cancer.
"Those three years felt like we were be-
ing punished for something that wasn't
even our fault, so it's a relief to know that
we are being released of a burden," Rodri-
guez said.
Rodriguez would also make use of the
unlimited trip time that is being proposed,
she said.
If the legislation passes, she hopes to
soon visit Cuba for about a month and
spend time with her newborn cousin.
"Honestly, there's no point going for 14
days because you're spending $2,000 (on
travel costs)," she said.
Crespo said she plans to go twice a year
if the proposed law passes.
"We cannot change anything political,
but we have our family," Crespo said.

Braff was paid $60K for appearance


BRAFF, from page 1

At age 26, he auditioned for
the show twice before receiv-
ing a call back, which brought
on six more auditions in front
of various NBC executives, a
process which he compared
to competing in an Olympic
event.
"It doesn't matter if you nail
the part the third time, because
if you bomb it the fourth time
there is nothing you can do,"
he said.
Braff admitted the long,
stressful process eventually
paid off. In becoming the star
in a hit TV show, he also had
"ultimate freedom," a term he
referred to when describing
the cast's input in the show.
"There are so many jobs
where you're not free to be cre-
ative," he said, adding he was
also blessed to be cast in a com-


patible group of a sane people.
Braff credited the show's hi-
larity to creator Bill Lawrence's
love of improvisation.
"We'd do a scene as written
and then just mess around," he
said.
During his interview, Braff
took a special lik-
On ing to the man
Campus who was signing
for the hearing
impaired on stage.
He would periodically
ask him to sign inappropriate
words like "shit," "foreskin"
and "titties."
"It would be so much fun to
hang out and in your daily life
have someone sign everything
you say," he said.
Braff spoke on other in-
terests he's pursued, outside
of acting, such as obtaining
his pilot's license and direct-
ing. He won a Grammy for
his compilation soundtrack


in the film "Garden State."
"That poor Grammy has got-
ten more evil eyes from mu-
sicians," he said, and said he
knows little about music be-
sides what he likes and doesn't
like.
During the audience ques-
tion-and-answer portion, the
majority of women confessed
their love for Braff, one even
asked for a hug in response,
Braff left the stage to meet her
in the aisle.
Most male audience mem-
bers requested him to recite
their favorite "Scrubs" quotes
and asked what will come of
the show's taxidermied pet,
Rowdy, once the show ends in
May.
"I'm allowed to have a dead
stuffed dog in my house, and I
will," he said.
According to the SG Finance
department Braff was paid
$60,000 to come and speak.


Board of Gov. seeks $3.2B from state


LEGISLATIVE, from page 1

Bill Edmonds, spokesman for the Board of
Governors, said all 11 state universities were
asked this year not to submit budget requests
that included proposals for university-specific
issues.
This year is the first time since 2004, when
the board was created and first implemented
the current budget request policy, that they
were asked not to do so, Edmonds said.
That doesn't mean the board, which usually
bundles the requests into one large request for


the entire State University System, isn't asking
the state for money this year.
The board is seeking an op-
erating budget for 2009-2010
of almost $3.2 billion, accord-
ing to the board's request.
Last year's operating budget
was just over $3 billion.
Sikes said UF understands
that lawmakers have a tough
Sikes task before them.
"We're hoping for the best," she said. "We
are trying to mitigate budget cuts. That's our
number one priority."


The donation will help fund the new 500,000-square-foot Shands Cancer Hospital


DONATION, from page 1

ficials see the donation as a "trans-
formational" gift that will help
the university affirm its role in the
world as a top clinical and research
center for cancer.


"Support from alumni and
friends of UF is always important
in terms of UF's reputation, re-
search abilities and ability to help
society, but it is even more impor-
tant in these tough economic times
of declining state support," Robell
wrote in an e-mail.

Hidden Scenes

CIA should be held

accountable for cover-up
The word out of Washington reveals new information
surrounding the destruction of CIA interrogation
tapes that feature two al-Qaida suspects.
While the length of the tapes had already been made known,
federal prosecutors announced Monday that a total of 92 video
tapes were destroyed in November 2005. What makes the situ-
ation raise eyebrows is the fact that the interrogations of Abu
Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashir, which were recorded
on the destroyed tapes, were deemed harsh at a time when
Congress questioned tactics used in the CIA's interrogation and
detention program.
Hmm, smells like a cover-up.
According to an article in The New York Times, the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the agency for
violation of the Freedom of Information Act. In submitting doc-
uments at a New York City court, the ACLU wants the judge in
the case to hold the CIA in contempt for destroying the tapes.
Finally, the chance for a major federal agency to be held ac-
countable for its questionable actions.
The Editorial Board can't help but wonder why Jose A. Ro-
driguez Jr., head of the agency's clandestine service, authorized
the destruction of the tapes in question. What was wrong with
keeping the footage secure in a safe in Thailand until the U.S.
government could properly declare that the CIA was not guilty
of employing suspicious interrogation tactics? By destroying
the tapes at such a seemingly opportune time to avoid potential
backlash, the CIA has cast a cloud of suspicion over itself that
cannot go away without further investigation.
Sure, the CIA is granted a bit of leeway when it comes to se-
crecy, but not at the expense of America conveying to the world
an abiding acceptance of torture.


Street Smarts


In Philadelphia's promi-
nent South Street corridor,
the economic downturn
has brought resurgence of
one word rarely spoken these
days opportunity.
With countless empty
storefronts lining one of the
city's major tourist destina-
tions, a group of business
owners have come together to
offer heavily discounted work
space to artists.
Called "Arts on South,"
the initiative provides musi-
cians, painters and others the
chance to feature their work
in a location they normally
could not afford. Combining
exposure for the artists with
making the neighborhood
more visually appealing, the
project only requires that the
new tenants cover the cost of
utilities.
Nothing like Philly chan-
neling its inner Wal-Mart by
rolling back rent prices to the
days of yesteryear.
According to the Associat-
ed Press, leases will be signed


for two months of free rent
and can be renewed month-
to-month until a paying rent-
er can be found. If artists are
forced to give up their space,
they will be provided with a
new one.
Facing both the economic
crunch and a construction
project that drove down pe-
destrian traffic, the city has
demonstrated a willingness to
do whatever it takes to inspire
a renaissance on South Street.
The Editorial Board is quite
impressed with Philadelphia's
efforts to improve its city
while also providing a huge
break for budding artists. As
abandoned buildings and
storefronts currently create an
eyesore around our town, we
implore the city of Gainesville
to take note of the progress
being made up north.
With all of the talented mu-
sicians and painters that call
Gainesville home, a chance for
a resurgence in North Central
Florida may be but a rent-free
initiative away.

Gangs shouldn't stop trips to Cancun


he sap is rising on campuses nationwide, as evi-
denced by "brahsome" plans of impending de-
bauchery and the giggly expectation of blackouts
yet to be wistfully forgotten.
The month of March is upon us. As spring peeks out
from the freezing blasts of an unusually cold winter,
few signs point as clearly to the shifting seasons as the
hallowed traditions of college spring break.
The State Department, though, wants you to keep
your sloppy seconds and unfair fights out of the Mexi-
can resort towns that have perfected the art of shame-
lessly catering to college spring breakers. An alert sent
out Feb. 20 by the U.S. government warns of a height-
ened danger for revelers making the boozy trek to Mex-
ico this year.
Our neighbors to the south have been experiencing
a bit of an issue controlling violence among drug gangs
recently, with over a thousand killings reported so far
this year. The gangs are by far the most powerful entity
in Mexican society now, especially along border towns
vital to the smuggling trade.
However, no college kids really party in Ciudad
Juarez if Sehor Frog somehow wound up there, he
wouldn't last fifteen minutes before catching a bullet to
the back of his amphibious head. The travel warning
makes clear that the greatest danger is concentrated in
these northern regions, but the timing of the govern-
ment-issued notice speaks directly to college kids mak-
ing final travel plans for coastal areas still considered
much safer destinations.
College presidents are chiming in too, with the Uni-
versity of Arizona directly "urging" students to stay
away from Mexico alongside less dire warnings from
universities scattered from Colorado to Pennsylvania.


The compound effect is a broad
coalition of authority figures wag-
ging a massive finger in the faces
of scores of affluent would-be
tourists.
Keeping spring breakers inside
American borders keeps their
Tommy Maple money in our economy and out
letters@alligator.org of the Mexican economy, a dou-
ble blow to our neighbor nation
struggling mightily with funding the front lines of our
drug wars.
The American government has not been on the best
of terms with the Mexican political structure for quite
a while now; this unease culminated in the murky saga
of the two border patrol agents paroled by former Pres-
ident George W. Bush in the waning moments of his
power.
A travel alert may be simply about the safety of
American citizens, but it could also be a pointed attack
on the one aspect of the Mexican economy that provid-
ed vital dollars to a nation on the verge of a massive
civil war.
Equating the relative safety of resort areas protected
by Mexican authorities directly to the urban epicenters
of gang warfare is akin to comparing a trip to South
Beach with an afternoon in Liberty City. Spring break-
ers are not going to "exercise caution in unfamiliar ar-
eas and be aware of their surroundings at all times,"
whether in Cancun or Clearwater.
So keep those plans to go to Cozumel just pack a
.44-caliber Magnum alongside that box of Magnums.

Letters to the Editor
Public education should be a priority
This weekend I went to a rally organized
by the Florida Education Association, Flor-
ida's largest educators' union, in support of
full and sustainable funded public education
in our state.
The thousands of teachers, parents, PTA
members, education support personnel and
students in attendance were united in their
message: Together, we can stop education
budget cuts.
Yes, these are lean times we're experienc-
ing, a fact Florida educators know better than
most.
That's because Florida, already nearly
last among the states in per-capita education
spending, stands as one of only three states


that have actually decreased education fund-
ing the in last several years. Here at UF, we've
felt the effects through across-the-board cuts,
lost faculty, and now, targeted cuts directed at
the Colleges of Education and Nursing.
It's time for us to stand up and tell our leg-
islators to make public education a priority.
We're kicking off our campaign on campus
with a candlelight vigil mourning the loss of
funding for public education this Wednesday
at 7:30 p.m., outside of Norman Hall.
From there, interested advocates and activ-
ists can tap into a campaign that will finally
secure adequate funding for public education
into the indefinite future.

College should be an option for all
I want to commend the work the United
We Dream at UF Campaign has done in the
past week. I believe the Development, Re-
lief and Education for Alien Minors Act (the
DREAM Act) is of great importance because
it will resolve the tragic irony that occurs in
America.
Many people are unaware that every year,
at least 65,000 undocumented students are de-
nied acceptance into colleges they would have
otherwise been accepted into because of their
immigration status.
It does not matter that they were taught
the same American values and all about the
American dream just like the rest of us. It
doesn't even matter that they call America


home and have learned to speak English and
excel in school.
It only matters that they were brought to
America by their parents when they were
minors and therefore lack the neccesary legal
documents.
The irony is that these kids are taught to
pursue their dreams, wishing to attain a pros-
perous future. Then they get slapped in the
face and are told that their years of hard work
are not enough to get them into college, not
even in America.
So let us all support the United We Dream
at UF Campaign and help make the dreams of
thousands come true.

Men cursed by timing


y father once explained
\/ to me the importance
of good timing in rela-
tionships. "Never talk to women
when they're angry," he told me
one night as he plopped on the
couch with a blanket and pillow.
Women have the luxury (or
curse) of timing programmed
into them. They're on a monthly
clock. That's probably how they
know when we're off.
Men fall anywhere between
Big Ben and the blinking "12:00"
on a VCR.
For me, timing a move on a
girl is like trying to merge onto
the highway during rush hour.
In the beginning, I keep inching
forward as if I'm going to do
something. I don't, of course.
Suddenly, an opening! My
heart pounds and I grin stupidly.
Here it comes ...and there it goes.
I'm a vegetable.
After the eighth window
closes, the panic starts to set in.
A guy behind me shouts, "Get
a move on, you pussy!" I say a
prayer, hold my breath and gun
it. If I don't crash completely, I
still make an ass of myself.
And it's not only "when" but
"how long." They say you have
three seconds after making eye
contact with a girl to make a


Erik Voss move. That's
Speaking Out not enough
time for me
to approach
her, freak out half way and run
to the bathroom, repeat "You're
so ugly!" into the mirror, dry the
tears, sing "Seasons of Love,"
apologize to the perplexed line
on my way out, and find her
again, just to go blank and blurt
out, "You're so ugly!"
Now, if I can only get all that
down to three seconds...
Time of year is also important.
I've found the best time to start
dating is post-Valentine's Day.
The only problem is that it's
right before spring break. A guy
is forced to spoon so much that
a week later when she's dancing
on a beach in Cancun with some
shirtless local named Raul, the
guilt will keep her faithful. After
all, spring fever leaves most col-
lege students "bedridden."
Ultimately, there is no right
moment. Things usually happen
at the worst possible timing (just
ask your parents). Aim for per-
fect timing and you'll probably
miss the mark completely. And
then you'll end up sleeping on
the couch like my dad.

Guest column

On-campus gym fails to consider the basic needs of males


My gym partner and I have
been pretty consistent
this semester, and as lift-
ing heavy weights is only a passing
distraction for me, I take almost ev-
ery opportunity I can get to people
watch. I've noticed a disturbing
trend: A divide exists between male
and female gym-goers.
It's an interesting little experi-
ment in social interaction Jane
Goodall can have her gorillas.
On the male side of the room,
sometimes there's not much differ-
ence anyway.
There are two halves to the room:
one female, and one good. There are
few crossings between the two sides,
except on limited occasions. Girls
usually intermingle to work on their
legs, which doesn't usually anger
the men, who are mostly working
on upper body. A few daring spirits
try dumbbells, usually ranging from
2.5 pounds to 12, maybe. Under no
circumstances is a woman to use the
bench. This is unwritten law; it just


looks silly. I once saw three girls
pumping iron on one bench. Not
only did the tomboy in question
need two spotters, there couldn't
be more than 60 there to begin with
and there was much simpering over
breaking a nail.
Likewise, few men venture into
the forest of treadmills, oscillation
devices and Stairmasters that popu-
late the female half of the room. The
medicine balls are stacked near the
yoga mats and exercise balls, where
any female is free to demonstrate
her flexibility.
They even have banks of tele-
visions provided for them, giving
them something to watch and listen
to, in order to drown out the drone
of the machines. Any man caught on
the oscillators is branded as effemi-
nate for the rest of his days.
In the middle of the opposing
sides is the Rec Sports staff kiosk,
just like in a Clint Eastwood west-
ern. Sans tumbleweeds, but still just
as dangerous as it's the staff mem-


JOShua berswhohave
control over
Nederveld the music, the
Speaking Out most precious
and valuable
commodity
to be had in the gym. Many of the
students that are cast into this teem-
ing whirlpool choose to tune out the
sounds and emotions around them,
focusing only on the mundane mu-
sic they fill their cavernous craniums
with via headphones. For the few
who enjoy conversation, we risk the
whims of XM radio.
At the beginning of every semes-
ter, the staff sets up a poll, which,
out of the hundreds of XM stations,
lists five options, three of them for
recent music, one for the '90s and
one classic rock station. Despite my
best attempts to stuff the ballot box-
es this year, I note that whenever a
certain, dollish Rec Sports girl with
platinum blonde highlights saun-
ters in, the station gets flipped to
the '90s. Next thing I know, I'm two


inches away from death by bench
press, and "Bye Bye Bye" blares out
through the speakers. Way to throw
off my groove.
Now, let it be said that I believe
music has different moods, and for
different moods there are differ-
ent activities. I should not have to
listen to Kelly Clarkson swear out
violent revenge on the male race
while gasping through the military
press. Workout music should set the
blood afire, put the adrenaline to
flow, and angry girl music does not,
and will not, accomplish this. Is life
so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be
purchased by the chains of slavery?
I know not what course others may
take; but as for me, Give me AC/DC
or give me death!
In order to speak out for the
masses, I've begun an underground
revolution, using the weapons of the
system against them: the comment
box. Styling myself as "The Official
Chapter of the He-Man Woman
Hater's Club" or the "Anti-Hip/


Hop Initiative," I've been leaving
messages like "The song 'Disturbia'
not only disturbs me, it reminds me
of what a terrible actor Shia LaBeouf
is," or "Hearing 'I Wanna Make
Love Right Na Na Na' is not a senti-
ment I feel while working out, and
I hope that you will be responsible
and cease in your attempts to en-
courage others to do so."
This is the right and privilege
of every man that has had to suffer
through this sickening abomination.
Surely we find ourselves in the mid-
dle of a great and terrible crisis, and
as Thomas Paine wrote, "These are
the times that try men's souls." I find
we are called to and must follow the
example of our forefathers and abol-
ish this tyranny. Tomorrow night,
I'm going to grab my tomahawk,
put on the war paint, and dump the
XM radio in the Rec Center swim-
ming pool. Just like Paul Revere
woulda done.

ELI achieves highest

enrollment in history
During fall
2008, the Eng-

Institute (ELI),
a University of
Florida Division
of Continuing
Education depart-
ment, achieved its
highest enroll-
ment of 214 ean Fre
students, since e ore
opening in 1955.
The institute offers extensive
English-language programs, taught by
UF faculty, which prepare students to
speak English in academic and real-life
settings. Students come from approxi-
mately 30 countries.
The institute's extensive Cultural
Immersion Program enriches students'
English-learning process by hosting
ELI social activities throughout the
Gainesville area. Students may partici-
pate in weekend trips, weekday activi-
ties and volunteer activities. Upcoming
weekend activities include an annual
trip to the Gainesville Spring Arts Fes-
tival on Saturday, March 28. Weekday
activities include soccer, basketball and
game nights.
On Saturday, April 4, ELI will
partner with the Girl Scout Council
of North Florida to host "Around
the World in 240 Minutes," an event
held to teach girls in grades 6 through
8 about ELI female students' home
countries.
The public is welcome to attend
ELI events. All attendees must sign-up
for trips on the activities board outside
ELI's main office, 315 Norman Hall,
by 4 p.m. on the Thursday before the
scheduled trip. Attendees also may
sign-up on the ELI Web site, http://
www.eli.ufl.edu.
The student section of ELI's Web
site offers opportunities for students to
network with their peers, professors,
language assistants and the institute's
alumni.
ELI is the only English-language
program that hires two language as-
sistants to aid listening/speaking course
teachers. Assistants are undergraduate
English-speakers who help students
practice informal, conversational Eng-
lish and teach about American culture
for four hours per week.
UF undergraduates interested in
working as language assistants may con-
tact Noreen Baker, ELI's listening/speak-
ing coordinator, at noreenb@ufl.edu.

Proton therapy targets cancer without harming healthy cells


Your campus news source
Produced by the
University Relations Office
for faculty, staff and students
of the University of Florida
Editor Susan Stewart
www.insideuf.ufl.edu
March 3, 2009


It sounds like power belonging only to
a superhero: a high-powered beam that is
able to zap a millimeter area within some-
one's body, and yet not harm the surround-
ing healthy cells.
Heroic yes, but this is not in comic
books. It's happening in real life, in nearby
Jacksonville.
The University of Florida Proton
Therapy Institute, located near Shands Jack-
sonville, is one of just five such facilities in
the country, and one of 21 in the world.
In this rare treatment, nuclear technol-
ogy is used to project protons into tumors
at nearly the speed of light. Unlike tradi-
tional radiation therapy with X-rays, proton
therapy helps reduce the incidence of
secondary cancers and other potential side
effects of treatment by reducing the amount
of radiation to surrounding body parts.
"Proton therapy offers hope for increased
cancer control and a better quality of life in
cancer survivors," Dr. Nancy Mendenhall,
the institute's medical director, said.
Opened in August 2006, the facil-
ity now treats more than 100 patients
daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday
through Friday.


Patients are assigned to one of three treat-
ment areas for the duration of treatment.
Each area includes a large gantry resembling
a Ferris wheel, but patients see only about
10 percent of the gantry. The majority
is enclosed behind a wall, along with a
440,000-pound cyclotron that generates and
accelerates protons to each gantry.
Appointments last an average of 30
minutes, with the proton treatment itself
taking just one to three minutes. Patients
return five days a week, for six to eight
continuous weeks.
Daily therapy appointments provide


numerous opportunities for
interaction among patients.
The institute encourages ca-
maraderie with social activities
such as weekly "lunch bunch"
gatherings, the hosting of guest
pianists and the offering of a
coffee bar in the modern, glass-
enclosed lobby.
A high percentage of
patients have prostate cancer,
yet the patient age and type of
cancer varies. Approximately
10 children are treated each


day, as well as patients with
sarcomas, head, neck and brain tumors,
cancers of the lung and pancreas, and
Hodgkin's lymphoma.
"Approximately 70 percent of our
patients come from outside the Jacksonville
area. We've had patients from 49 states and
several foreign countries," Stuart Klein, ex-
ecutive director of the UF Proton Therapy
Institute, said.

tute, visit www.floridaproton.org.

Dance for Life, a free, therapeutic dance
program for people with Parkinson's dis-
ease, offers University of Florida students,
faculty, staff and UF Movement Disorders
Center (MDC) patients an opportunity to
come together and dance.
Dance for Life is designed to reduce
motor and non-motor symptoms and en-
hance the well-being of Parkinson's disease
patients.
Program partners for Dance for Life
include MDC and the UF College of Fine
Arts' Center for the Arts in Healthcare
(CAHRE).
"Dance for Life not only fits within the
mission and goals of the program's partners,
but also highlights the benefits of dance for
Parkinson's patients," said Jill Sonke-Hen-
derson, who serves as director of CAHRE,
assistant director of Shands Arts in Medicine
and co-director of Dance for Life.
Dr. Hubert Fernandez, associate profes-
sor of UF's department of neurology and
co-director of both MDC and Dance for
Life, said the program assists Parkinson's
disease patients with non-motor (men-
tal) symptoms, including depression and
anxiety, as well as motor symptoms such as
coordination difficulties and gait freezing.
Gait freezing occurs when lack of coordi-
nation inhibits the movement of a certain


School of Theatre and Dance professor,
and Lauren Arce, Artist in Residence for
Shands Arts in Medicine. Student-leaders
assist as part of the School of Theatre and
Dance teaching-methods course.
"The collaboration between the stu-
dents and the older participants is just rich
and wonderful," Sonke-Henderson said.
"Dance for Life gives students a sense
of bringing their art out of the studio and
into the world," she said. Any UF student
may volunteer for the program by calling
Shands Arts in Medicine at 352-265-
0151 or by e-mailing Sonke-Henderson at
jsonke@ufl.edu.
Patients' friends and family members are
encouraged to attend and participate in an
informal performance at the culminating
event in April, she said. The event date has
not yet been determined.
It is possible that faculty and staff may
join in the performance to show patients
that "we're all in this together," Fernandez
said. "You dance, and we'll dance for you."

Artwork connects campus
and Gainesville
The artwork
of Brad Smith,
teaching lab
specialist in
sculpture at the
University of
Florida School
of Art and Art at
History, has been
installed between
13th Street and
Norman Hall.
The sculpture,
"Rejoined," was funded by the Community
Redevelopment Agency and coordinated by
the Gainesville Department of Parks, Rec-
reation and Cultural Affairs' Art in Public
Places Trust.
"Rejoined" includes materials previously
removed from the old Federal Building
downtown. "The design, a split column
joined by three stainless steel bars, was to
symbolize the old made new," Smith said.
"It also was to act as a symbolic gateway
connecting UF with the redeveloped Uni-
versity Heights neighborhood."

body part.
Dancing helps patients use visual cues
and develop muscle memory to overcome
gait freezing. Movement becomes second
nature, so patients are able to walk without
conscious effort, Fernandez said.
Music is also effective therapy for de-
pression and anxiety. The program provides
patients with muscle therapy, rigorous
exercise, and visual and auditory cuing in a
fun way, he said.
The MDC refers patients to the pro-
gram, but anyone with Parkinson's disease
is welcome.
The new Dance for Life program began
on Jan. 26 with approximately 12 older
participants and 10 UF students. Weekly
classes will continue each Monday until
April 20 with the exception of no class on
March 9. A culminating event is scheduled
to take place in late April.
The sessions are held from 1 to 2:15

Another Gator story from
InsideTheGatorNation.com
"Ihave vague images ofsitting in the
top row ofFlorida Gym during my aunt'
graduation in 1971. (I was 4years old).
I thought this place (UF) was cool...Dur-
ing my high school years, my older brother
attended UF and I visited each weekend
... Igraduated UF in 1989 and moved
to Michigan ...I will always be a Gator
and remember the great education and life
experiences I had there. So much so, that
I have been asked and have accepted a
role on the board of advisors for Center for
Supply Chain Management in the War-
rington College of Business. I see it as my
way ofgiving back to the university that
gave me so much."

UF looks to avenge past losses against No. 16 FSU


* THE TEAM WILL TRAVEL TO THE
CAPITAL AFTER BEATING MIAMI.

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

The UF men's tennis team will attempt to
avenge two losses when it goes to the Scott
Speicher courts against FSU today at 5 p.m.
The Gators women lost to the Seminoles
5-2 on Saturday, and the men dropped their
previous dual match in Tallahassee in 2007.
The No. 12 men (8-3) are coming off a win
against Miami on Feb. 22, which gives them


not only time to rest but also the confidence
coach Andy Jackson wants instilled in his
players.
They are going to need that swagger go-
ing into a hostile environment, especially on
the heels of FSU's win on Saturday one
that is sure to have an already amped-up
crowd raising the volume to 11.
"You go on the road in Florida-Florida
State, obviously you have a demon there,
so it gives them an edge but in the end,
it's going to be decided on the tennis courts,
and I think that we can compete with them,"
Jackson said.
The Seminoles (10-4) aren't just a long-


time rival, making a grudge match a possi-
bility every year. At No. 16, they're a threat
to any team they trade volleys with. Three of
FSU's four losses have come
against current top-10 teams
defending champion No. 2
Men's Georgia, No. 6 Texas and No.
9 Mississippi.
Ten In doubles, Jean-Yves Au-
bone and Clint Bowles are
ranked No. 34 for the Seminoles, and are
Nos. 19 and 55 in singles, respectively.
The duo will likely face UF's Antoine
Benneteau and Joey Burkhardt on Court 1.
The Gators' tandem is No. 23.


Benneteau said he is excited about play-
ing the role of villain. After beating South
Florida and Miami, the junior is up to the
challenge of helping his team be the elite
squad in The Sunshine State.
"Florida State is another rivalry in the
same state," he said. "We just want to beat
them, just go in as best we can. The best men
are going to win, but we're going to be ready
to go over there."
Beginning at 5 p.m. also favors the home
team since more spectators are likely to
show up to cheer on their players, Jackson
said. But he believes FSU's war cry won't be
the only one heard tonight.

ovan said.
"There is a change and a shift for a
guy who was a leading scorer to this
kind of role."
Shipman admits it can be frustrating
at times but said he understands he can
best help the team in other ways right
now.
"I'm real impatient," Shipman said.
"Going from 25 points (a game) in high
school to getting two shots a game,
there's been some sleepless nights."


Shipman has shown signs that he
can be a solid scoring option in recent
weeks.
His ability to at-
tack the rim is a di-
mension that has been
sorely missing from the
Gators' offense this sea-
son.
Shipman followed
Brewer up an athletic baseline
drive and reverse layup
late in the second half against Tennes-
see with a deep three in front of the UF
bench on the following possession.


"My shots before haven't been confi-
dent. That was confident," Shipman said.
"I felt like I was back in high school, like
I was playing ball again."
Coaches have pointed to former UF
swingman Corey Brewer as the blue-
print for Shipman's development.
Brewer, like Shipman, was used
primarily as a defensive specialist as a
freshman before going on to become a
starter and one of the nation's most dy-
namic players.
"They always use Corey as an exam-
ple," Shipman said.
"I'm tired of hearing Corey's name."

younger teammates to help
them get past their dismal
showing this weekend.
He expects his team to re-
alize that type of performance
is not accepted at UF and re-
spond because of it.
The team also won't have
to hear about its poor play
this past weekend from
O'Sullivan.
"There's not much to tell


them," O'Sullivan said. "If
they can't figure it out after
this weekend, I don't know
what will."
S While the
Gators expect
to mentally
Baseball recover from

quickly, some
of their arms will not be able
to get ready as fast.
The team will feel the im-
pact of using 10 different


pitchers in a weekend in-
cluding five on Sunday for
more than just two days.
One of the pitchers used
in relief Sunday was Jus-
tin Poovey, who started last
Tuesday against Eastern
Michigan.
His 1 1/3 innings of work
Sunday were enough to rule
him out as the starter for
tonight. Instead, Lake City

open the game on the mound
for the Gators.
Barfield entered the sea-
son as one of the candidates
to be UF's closer. He threw
on Sunday, too, but he only
pitched one inning and faced
just four batters. He was the
only Gators pitcher on Sun-
day to not give up a run.
Although he didn't throw
many pitches, he will prob-
ably not be counted on to go
deep into the game, which
will require further use of a
bullpen that is being called
upon more and more.

"It's the first time on the
road, so we are going to
have to band together."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach


Not only will Barfield have
to deal with the pressure of
his first start, but this will be
the first time the Gators go on
the road for a game.
UF won't have to face the
same type of crowd in De-
Land tonight that it will face
when it travels to the fields
of Southeastern Conference
foes, but the team still isn't
going to be greeted with the
support it is accustomed to in
Gainesville.
"It's the first time on the
road, so we are going to have
to band together," O'Sullivan
said.


PHIL, from page 16


ference meet this weekend (no titles
since 2004). That's the standard here
in Gainesville.
7. YOU HOPEFULLY WON'T GO MISS-
ING Ahem, Alex Tyus. You've had
a heck of a breakout year, man, but
you have only scored 13 points com-
bined in two games against Tennes-
see. Length is Tennessee's forte, but
the Gators need Tyus.
6. YOU WON'T BE ON CRUTCHES -
You will be able to walk around nor-
mally, something softball senior Kim
Waleszonia sadly will be unable to do.
UF's center fielder sustained an un-
known injury to her left leg Saturday,
just one day after breaking the school
career hits record. It will be key to see
how much time she must miss.
5. YOU WON'T BURN OUT like the
UF women's basketball team seems
to be doing. The Gators are now 1-4
since topping Tennessee at home and
seem as if they certainly peaked early.
They will likely have a rematch with
the Volunteers in Friday's SEC Tour-
nament Quarterfinals. I predict a Ten-
nessee win, but more on this later.
4. YOU WON'T FEEL EXTREME PRES-
SURE Certainly nothing like the UF
men's basketball team will feel during
the next two weeks. This team doesn't
come across as one that plays well
when it absolutely must.
3. YOU WON'T BE EMBARRASSED -
The UF baseball team built up every-
one's hopes with a season-opening
sweep of Louisville and then got
swept at home by Miami. Yes, Friday
and Saturday's games were close. But
they were still losses, and home ones
at that. But 16-2? That's just ugly.
2. YOU WON'T SIT AROUND WAITING
FOR BAD NEWS If the UF women's
basketball team loses in the SEC Tour-
nament Quarterfinals as I predicted
earlier, it will have to wait 10 days for
Selection Monday on March 16. The
Gators are a lock to make the Field of
64, but ESPN.com's current bracket
projection has them going to Seattle
for a first-round game. I'm smelling a
one-and-done.
1. YOU WON'T MAKE HISTORY (IN A
BAD WAY) While you're stumbling
back to Gainesville on March 15, the
UF men's basketball team will be
gathering for Selection Sunday. After
10 straight years in the Big Dance, the
Gators will face a three-lettered fate
for the second straight year: NIT.

Shipman slowly settles into role as defensive stopper


Harrison Diamona/ Alligator start
UF forward Ray Shipman runs down the court between Tennessee's Tyler Smith and Scotty Hopson dur-

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

The transition from high
school to college hasn't been an
easy one for Ray Shipman.
In just a few short months, the
state of Florida's reigning Mr.
Basketball has gone from offen-
sive superstar to defensive role
player.
Shipman is probably the
Gators' best athlete, and on a
team struggling to find a respect-
able vertical leap, UF coach Billy
Donovan has used the freshman
as the one player who can help
his team match up physically
with the bigger, quicker bodies of
the Southeastern Conference.
"For Ray, understanding the
impact he could make defensive-
ly and then understanding that
on the offensive end of the floor
he may not be a priority or an
option," Donovan said. "That's
been the big learning curve."
The adjustment to his new role
didn't come as fast as Shipman
thought or hoped it would.
"I knew coming in, but I didn't
know it would be like this," Ship-
man said. "I thought I would be


able to get a little more into the
offensive system."
The team has routinely relied
on Shipman to slow down oppo-
nents' best offensive players. It's
a role he has tried to use to his
advantage.
"Do whatever you can do to
get on the court," Shipman said.
"You can't score on the bench. If
you're out there, things are going
to happen."
Though he
has excelled as
the team's de-
Men's fensive stop-
Basketball per, the 6-foot-5
forward wants
people to know
there's more to his game than
steals and rebounds.
"I'm not just a defensive play-
er," Shipman said.
"It wasn't like that in high
school. My offense is just as
good."
Shipman is averaging 3.8
points per game this season and
is often all but overlooked on of-
fense.
"It's probably not totally fair
for Ray in a lot of respects," Don-

Gators try to look past


sweep on way to Hatters


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer

Some lessons don't need to be
stressed over and over again by a
coach.
Getting over a weekend sweep -
including a 16-2 loss Sunday at the
hands of Miami is one of those les-
sons.
The Gators (5-3) will get their
chance to do so on the field at Stetson
(2-6) tonight at 6:30.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan is glad
his team does not have to wait long to
get an opportunity to put last week-
end behind it.
"(Playing again so soon) is prob-
ably the best remedy," O'Sullivan

said. "It doesn't give you a chance to
think about it."
Even though there is not much
time to think about the sweep, a 16-2
loss isn't something that is just for-
gotten.
Senior first baseman Brandon
McArthur expected Monday's prac-
tice to help the team deal with the
sweep.
"You've got to find a way (to get
over the losses)," he said Sunday.
"We'll wake up (Monday), and it's a
whole new day. We'll come out for
practice and get better."
As a leader of the team, McArthur
is looked to for advice, but he doesn't
feel the need to say anything to his
