UF students



offer bikes,



give hope

By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

For some, a bicycle is convenient. But for others, it can
be a stepping stone to a better life.
Operating on this idea, a group of UF graduates and
current students have partnered up with The Kickstand
to give repaired bicycles to poor and homeless patrons at
the Gainesville Catholic Worker House.
Seven bicycles have already been given away, all to
homeless people. One bicycle was given to a man who
found a new job but needed transportation to get there,
one was given to a man who had just had his bike stolen
and another bike went to a disabled man who needed a
way to get to his doctor's appointments.
To start, the group bought 30 used bicycles from
Craigslist last month to fix up.
They then met on June 7 and again on Sunday to repair
some of the used bicycles at The Kickstand, a community
bicycles shop located on South Main Street that helps

Company sues Grooveshark


By ALEXANDRA LAYOS
Alligator Writer

The fat lady may be warming up her vocal
cords for Grooveshark.com, a music streaming
Web site founded by two former UF students.
Music industry giant EMI is suing the
Gainesville-based company Escape Media for
copyright infringement on its Grooveshark Web
site. Grooveshark was founded by UF students
Josh Greenberg and Sam Tarantino in 2006, and
the site officially launched in the summer of
2007 as a peer-to-peer music sharing site.
The Web site's slogan is "Play any song in
the world, for free!" and it now allows users
to search for songs, add them to a playlist and
have further listening automatically suggested
based on past choices.
"Grooveshark's main objective is to pro-


vide instant listening of music to anyone in the
world, but at the same time compensate those
who create the music," said Ben Westermann-
Clark, spokesman for Grooveshark. "Obviously
this is a pretty hefty undertaking, as there are
literally tens of thousands of music labels out
there."
Grooveshark already has licens-
Student ing deals with labels like V2 and
Life Nettwerk, which has signed Sarah
McLachlan and Barenaked Ladies.
The Web site had been negotiating a similar
licensing agreement with EMI for more than a
year before the company sued.
"As a company, it sounds really cheesy, but
we're completely committed to helping artists,
labels and fans connect with each other in a
way that feels inevitable online," Westermann-

* THE STORY DEPICTED HIS
DAUGHTER'S DEATH.

By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Writer

On March 9, 2004, George Goens
was awoken by a phone call at 3:50
a.m. telling him that his daughter,
Betsy, was in trouble.
After Betsy gave birth to her sec-
ond child, Luke, doctors noticed a
rare complication. Hours later, as
Goens was rushing to make his 6:15
a.m. flight from Connecticut, she
died in a South Florida hospital.
His story would be told years lat-
er in a Sunday edition of The New
York Times and then plagiarized by
a UF student during an internship.
Intern reporter Hailey Mac Ar-


thur used parts of Goens' story for
an article during her internship at
The Colorado Springs Gazette.
This was one of four stories Mac
Arthur wrote for the Gazette con-
taining plagiarized material from
the Times this summer.
"That story is so personal."
George Goens

"That story is so personal," he
said. "The words that were put to-
gether were expressing my feelings
and my thoughts."
Overwhelmed with his daugh-
ter's death, Goens, an author, mo-
tivational speaker and consultant,
took eight months to write the story

STATE
Cameras captured 'chilling'
break-in at Fla. home
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -Byrd
and Melanie Billings had a grow-
ing brood of adopted children with
autism, Down syndrome and other
disabilities, and took care to make
their nine-bedroom house a safe
place for them, wiring it with sur-
veillance cameras in every room.
It was those cameras that cap-
tured images of the masked men
who shot the wealthy couple to
death in a break-in executed with
chilling precision.
Authorities made three arrests
over the weekend, but the mystery
around town only deepened Mon-
day, when Sheriff David Morgan
said that as many as eight people
in all may have been involved and
that the crime appeared to have
"numerous motives," though rob-
bery was the only one he would
mention.
"Mr. Billings was well-to-do.
He was an entrepreneur, and he
opened his home to the communi-
ty. You are asking me to speculate
on a motive. That could have been
one reason," Morgan said, liken-
ing the killings to the 1959 slayings
of a Kansas farm family that were
chronicled by Truman Capote in
the book "In Cold Blood."
The video from last Thursday
showed three armed, masked
men arriving in a red van, enter-
ing through the front of the house
and then returning to the vehicle.
Others dressed in what the sher-
iff called "ninja garb" went in
through an unlocked utility door
in the back. They were in and out
in under 10 minutes.
Some of the nine children in the
house at the time were sleeping,
but several others saw the break-
in, authorities said.

Baby taken to hospital
with screwdriver in ear
HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) -
Police are investigating how a
screwdriver was lodged so deep-
ly into a 5-month-old baby's ear
in South Florida that it may have
caused cranial damage.
According to Homestead
Capt. Ed Bowe, police were
called to a home at 11:26 p.m.
Sunday.
Latasha Bailey, 30, told police
that she was in another room of
her apartment when she heard
her baby crying. When she en-
tered the room, she found her
4-year-old son standing next to
her infant son, who had a screw-
driver jammed in his ear.
Bowe said the baby was flown
to the hospital in Miami-Dade
County in stable condition.


Fla. restricts honey that
isn't 100 percent pure
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -
Florida wants to make sure its
honey is 100 percent pure.
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson announced Monday
that his department is instituting
a regulation that prohibits addi-
tives, chemicals or adulterants in
honey produced, processed or
sold in Florida unless consumers
are clearly told what else is in it.
Bronson said, "Too often in
the past, honey has been cut with
water or sugar, and sometimes
even contaminated with insecti-
cides or antibiotics."
The regulation takes effect
today and says honey must con-
tain only the "natural food prod-
uct resulting from the harvest of
nectar by honeybees."
Bronson said if producers mix
honey with other products, it can
be sold, but must be clearly la-
beled as a blended product.

Chinese drywall may be in
400 homes
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.
(AP) Homebuilder Lennar


Corp. has identified defective Chi-
nese-made drywall in about 400
Florida homes, most built in the
2006 and 2007 fiscal years, accord-
ing to a federal filing.
The Miami-based company
said in the filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Com-
mission last week that the figure,
based on accounting through May
31, represents only 2.1 percent of
homes the company delivered in
Florida during that time.
Lennar said it had not yet
found defective drywall in any of
its homes outside Florida, but con-
tinues to investigate.
The company said it has set
aside $39.8 million in warranty
reserves for homes that have the
defective drywall and is seeking
reimbursement from subcontrac-
tors, insurers and others for inves-
tigative and repair costs related to
the problem.
State and federal tests have
found high levels of sulfur and or-
ganic compounds in the Chinese
drywall.
Homeowners across the coun-
try have sued builders, suppliers
and manufacturers, claiming the
fumes are ruining their houses and
making them sick.
Lennar said it is named in at
least 41 Florida state court lawsuits
and two federal class action cases.
Shipping records reviewed by
The Associated Press indicated
that imports of potentially tainted
Chinese building materials ex-
ceeded 500 million pounds during
a four-year period of soaring home
prices, peaking in 2006.
The drywall may have been
used in more than 100,000 homes,
according to some estimates, in-
cluding houses rebuilt after Hur-
ricane Katrina in 2005.

Two mugged near UF campus


Robbers target young adults


One UF student was robbed at gun-
point and another was kicked in the
mouth in two muggings that occured
over the weekend, according to police.
The muggings are part of a growing
trend targeting young adults in areas
on and near campus.
From June 1 to July 7, there were
37 robberies in the city not includ-
ing campus. At least 12 happened near
campus, according to data provided by
the Gainesville Police Department.
In many cases, the victims are drunk
and walking alone late at night, said
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg.


At around 1:18 a.m. Sunday, a man
approached a student walking from his
car to his apartment at Corry Village, a
graduate student housing complex in
the northwest part of campus.
The man pointed a gun at the stu-
dent, pushed him to the ground and
demanded his car keys. The student
refused to give up his keys and handed
over cash instead, according to the Uni-
versity Police Department.
The man then took the student's cell
phone from his pocket and ran. The
suspect is described as a 5-foot 11-inch
black man wearing a black T-shirt, dark


jeans and a black mask.
The second robbery occurred on
Northwest 11th Street about 30 minutes
later. The student, who was alone, had
his wallet stolen and was kicked in the
mouth. He described the suspects as
two black men, one fat and the other of
normal build.
Kameg questioned why the student,
who had a phone, called his credit card
companies before the police.
"My first reaction was just, 'I don't
want these jerks to spend my money,
and so I just canceled my cards im-
mediately,'" the student said, though
he admitted he probably should have
called police first.

Research society elects UF professor


A UF professor was announced Friday as the president-
elect of the International Neuropsychological Society, a
worldwide, nonprofit organization.
Russell Bauer, professor and chairman of the Department
of Clinical and Health Psychology in UF's College of Public
Health and Health Professions, is the fourth UF faculty mem-
ber elected to the presidency of INS in its 42-year history, ac-
cording to a UF press release.
Now president-elect, Bauer will become incoming presi-
dent in February, and will begin his one-year term as presi-
dent of the INS in early 2011. As president-elect, he will take
on more decision-making responsibilities, such as develop-
ing research programs, which he said are important to the
field of neuropsychology. He will also help with the biannual
meetings held in different world locations.
One challenge of the job, he said, will be encouraging neu-
ropsychological researchers to think creatively.
"I hope the research ends in a better way of translating


results to patients," Bauer said, adding that he is excited to
travel and work with colleagues from around the world.
Bauer, who directed UF's clinical psychology doctoral
program, said he hopes his presidency will draw attention
to UF. Michael Perri, interim dean at UF's College of Public
Health and Health Professions, said Bauer's expertise in neu-
ropsychological studies make him an excellent candidate.
"The INS will benefit greatly
U F from Bauer's perspective as a re-
Administration searcher, educator and clinician,"
Perri said.
Stephen Rao, INS's incoming
president, said Bauer's leadership has propelled the society.
"Bauer has a good feel on what's important in the neu-
ropsychological department and how it can further progress
worldwide," he said.

Commissioners


discuss growth
ByJANA I.HALL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville citizen Ramon Trujillo was "tickled
pink" at the reception of his comments by Gaines-
ville's Community Development Committee meet-
ing Monday night.
Following citizen complaints, including those by
Trujillo, the committee discussed growth manage-
ment issues and landlord licensing fees.
"These are nuts and bolts tasks planned on a mu-
nicipal level," said Trujillo. "Although those elected
steer the meeting, representation
from the community can give in-
put."
According to Assistant City
Manager Fred Murry, Gainesville
doesn't have the authority to
charge licensing fees on multiple-
Heny family units of five or more fami-
Henry
lies because this authority belongs
to the Division of Hotels and Restaurants.
The licensing fee discussion was deferred until
the next meeting scheduled Aug. 24, because Com-
missioner Scherwin Henry who handled the issue
was absent. The committee also addressed the need
for new sidewalks in eastside communities, creating
more sewage outlets in newly developed areas, qual-
ity control checks on redevelopment projects and en-
hancing transportation services such as RTS.

Editorial

Supremely Fair

Race doesn't affect

Sotomayor's decisions
When a judge is nominated for the Supreme Court,
the nitpicking invariably begins.
For Sonia Sotomayor, however, the nitpicking
seems a little more personal than political.
Democrats, and Sotomayor herself, are relying too much
on the whole "It's the American Dream" strategy (see
Obama, Barack for reference as to how this rhetorical scheme
generates empathy and awe), and the main criticisms of the
Republicans who oppose her are based on previous public
statements about being a "wise Latina" that suggest, to them,
that she would act with "inappropriate empathy" to groups
that she is partial to or is affiliated with.
The job of a Supreme Court justice is to apply the law, not
to make it. So, to say that Sotomayor is unfit for the bench
because she has given preferential treatment to either his-
panics or to Democrats would be a fair criticism. However,
the Editorial Board cannot find any evidence that Sotomayor
has any agenda that can be classified under a masthead read-
ing "Democrat" or "Republican," or that she's shown blatant
"sympathy" to minority groups because of her race.
When Sotomayor was on the 2nd District Court of Ap-
peals, she ruled against the plaintiffs in Ricci v. DeStefano, a
case about reverse discrimination. Sotomayor said that New
Haven's fire department did not have the right to base pro-
motions on a written test, because written tests dispropor-
tionately favor Caucasians. Those who oppose her nomina-
tion say that Sotomayor was wrong to not add her own legal
analysis to the case (and want to point to the fact that she, oh
my God, protected minorities in the workplace). However,
this was not a 'gimme' to the African-Americans who failed
the test, or a cop out on her part, but rather an indication
that she firmly believes in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of
1964.
In Pappas v. Giuliani she dissented from the majority and
protected employee's rights to send racist e-mails without
fear of termination because the First Amendment protects
offensive and hateful speech. It doesn't sound to us like Soto-
mayor is coddling minorities and eschewing her responsibil-
ity to uphold the Constitution. It sounds like race is second-
ary in her decision making.
Sotomayor may be proud of her Latina heritage and vo-
cal about her status as a minority, but her rulings in those
cases show that her affiliation as a minority does not taint
her rulings from the bench. That should be the only concern
of naysayers. Period.
Perhaps Democrats would be better off reminding people
how she has shown no preference to minorities in past rul-
ings so as to leave Republicans with little to no other ammo.
Instead, expect more nitpicking about the implications of
her race to flood the Senate Judiciary Committee as hearings
proceed. It would be nice to think that race doesn't enter the
equation, but we definitely remember how Bush deliberated
about appointing Clarence Thomas after only a few months
on the federal bench so as not to use him as a replacement for
Thurgood Marshall and be accused of tokenism.
On the other hand, if "being Latina" is the biggest dirt
Republicans can dig up on the Princeton and Yale grad, it
looks like Sotomayor will get the appointment (given that
she doesn't, like, become roommates with Jane Roe in the
next few days).

Opinions


Column

Politics without Pa
So I refuse to be the only one who doesn't give my
two cents about this Palin resignation.
Let me just say that I'm overjoyed. Seriously.
Like a kid on Christmas.
There are so many possible reasons for Palin's resig-
nation, and each of them thrills me. Is she going to run
for president? Did she resign just ahead of a scandal? Is
she going to cash in on some of that reality TV money
that's been thrown at her by the soul-stealers known as
television executives? Whatever her reason, Sarah Palin
is the hot topic right now. And the world, it seems, is
her oyster.
On July 26, Palin will no longer be the most powerful
woman in Alaska. I mean that only in a political sense.
I'm sure she will probably remain the only Alaskan
woman who can strangle a bear or beat Putin at arm
wrestling.
But, she will no longer be governor, and I imagine
that to be a bittersweet day for Alaskan Democrats and
Republicans alike. She's brought fantastic exposure to
a place that, frankly, many Americans just plain forget
exists. One can only imagine Alaska will become as ob-
scure as Hawaii, Arkansas or North Dakota.
Palin herself has been charmingly vague about her
plans, only telling the public that she wants to stay to
some degree involved in politics. She said that she will
stump for any candidate who shares her small-govern-
ment, maverick values even conservative Democrats!
No offense to the Alaskan Amazon, but I can hardly
imagine that any Democrat would appreciate her sup-
port, given her dismal approval ratings among Demo-
crats and Independents alike.
No, if Palin wants to stay involved in politics, it will

from the conservative base that,
like Dr. Frankenstein, created and
let her loose her upon us all.
Perhaps we'll get very lucky
and be graced with an Obama-
Eric Chianese Palin race for the White House in
letters@alligator.org 2012. I can't imagine a better sce-
nario especially since I support
Obama.
I don't know what advice Palin has been listening
to, but unless Obama decides to kick a baby on national
TV, she can't win. What she can do, though, is provide
hours of entertainment in the form of uninformed an-
swers, bizarre segues and slightly cougarish winks.
And wouldn't that be worth it? America needs to laugh
again.
While this scenario is appealing as is the prospect
of a scandal what I'm saying my evening prayers for
is a Palin reality show. "Maverick Knows Best"? "Survi-
vor: Alaska"? Maybe she'll even make a guest appear-
ance on an episode of "Trading Spouses.
There is a lot of money and fame being dangled in
front of that small town girl, as well as an escape from
the lonely political world where David Letterman
mocks you.
Who could blame her for taking that train to reality
superstardom? Certainly, she has sufficient talent for
it.
For now we'll wait, and watch, and hope that Palin
will stay visible. I can't imagine America without her.

Web site scams students unaware of free credit report law


FreeCreditReport.com, the credit-report-
ing service owned by Experian, recently
released its latest TV commercial in its
ubiquitous "guy sings about his bad credit"
ad campaign, which raises an important ques-
tion: How the hell are these ads still on TV?
Don't get me wrong. The FreeCred-
itReport.com commercials, from an advertis-
ing standpoint, are incredibly well-executed.
The lyrics are clever; the songs become in-
stant earworms and most everybody I know
has a favorite spot (mine's the one with the bi-
cycles). It's no wonder why Experian poured
upward of $70 million into the Web site's ad-
vertising budget in 2007.
The Martin Agency, FreeCreditReport.
com's ad agency, has undoubtedly created an
amazingly effective ad campaign. It's also cre-
ated one of the most unethical ad campaigns
in recent memory.
The context: In 2003, the FACT Act was
signed into law, which entitled consumers


to a free annual credit report from the three
major consumer credit reporting agencies,
Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. To com-
ply with the law, the three agencies and the
Federal Trade Commission established An-
nualCreditReport.com. Unfortunately, An-
nualCreditReport.com was woefully under-
publicized, leaving many consumers vaguely
aware of their right to a credit report but not
having any real idea of how to go about get-
ting it.
Enter FreeCreditReport.com. With a del-
uge of TV commercials that sought to posi-
tion it as the prima facie free credit report
Web site, the company successfully preyed
upon consumers' ignorance of the law and
exploited consumers' fears about hackers and
identity theft. Of course, FreeCreditReport.
com's credit reports aren't actually free. At the
end of most of the commercials, an announcer
hurriedly says, "Offer applies with enroll-
ment in Triple Advantage," the Web site's


Joe Dellosa $14.95 per month cred-
SpeakingOut it-monitoring service.
In essence, it's like say-
ing, "Free Cinnamon
Toast Crunch! Offer applies with purchase of
the box."
And consumers have been hoodwinked.
The Federal Trade Commission's Web site
warns against "imposter" Web sites and
released a series of web public service an-
nouncements that parody FreeCreditReport.
com's ads, dorky singing guitarist and all.
This isn't to say that consumers duped by
FreeCreditReport.com are blameless. This
information is readily available with a quick
Google search, and consumers shouldn't
blindly follow financial advice from some guy
on TV let alone one dressed like a pirate.
But it's rare that an advertising campaign
so flagrantly acts in bad faith and treats con-
sumers with such overt contempt. Even
though they're lighthearted, they manipulate


and amplify very real fears of stolen identity
and future unemployment. Catchy, rhyming
fear-mongering, after all, is still fear-monger-
ing. And building a business predicated on
your consumers' ignorance is simply mean-
spirited.
College students should be particularly
offended. In a 2008 New York Times article,
Mike Dean, a marketing executive at Experi-
an, said that the idea behind the ads are to ap-
peal to a young crowd. "[W]e were targeting
a younger audience," he said. "That's exactly
what we've received with that: we have a lot
younger demographic coming into our site."
Gee, thanks, Mike.
FreeCreditReport.com's marketing prac-
tices are entirely unscrupulous, and the Mar-
tin Agency an agency whose others ads,
like those for GEICO, I love should be
ashamed of its complicity in it. Both deserve
all the scorn we can muster.

Population issues must be addressed


None of the crises we face today
whether it is the food crisis,
the water crisis, the financial
crisis or the crisis of climate change -
can be managed unless greater atten-
tion is paid to population issues.
World Population Day, which was
July 11, was the right time to put the
population issue back on the radar
screen. And it's not a moment too
soon. By 2050 our global population
of 6.8 billion people could grow to the
United Nation's median projection of
nine billion, or even soar to 11 billion.
But what's not widely realized is
that the projection of nine billion glob-
al population is based on a substantial
reduction in fertility in the least devel-
oped countries, which would require
a dramatic increase in voluntary fam-
ily planning.
Recently we heard President Ba-
rack Obama, in his address from
Cairo, say that denying a woman her


Thoraya Obaid education is de-
Speaking Out nying her equal-
ity. I would add
another area
that is vital for broadening women's
horizons. Governments agree it is nec-
essary to approve access to sexual and
reproductive health. This is essential
for advancing women's empower-
ment and levels of equality.
Some 200 million women today
want to plan and space their births but
lack access to safe and effective con-
traception. According to the latest fig-
ures, just one in four married women
in the least developed countries are
using modern contraception.
It is important to note that invest-
ments in women and reproductive
health are not only important for over-
coming poverty, they are also cost-ef-
fective. For example, an investment in
contraceptive services can be recouped
four times over and sometimes dra-


matically more over the long run -by
reducing the need for public spending
on health, education, housing, sanita-
tion and other social services.
That's why the International Con-
ference on Population and Develop-
ment proposed a plan 15 years ago in
Cairo to ensure universal access to re-
productive health by 2015, a goal that
now seems out of reach.
It is also important to work toward
maternal health. The sad and shocking
truth is that maternal mortality repre-
sents the largest health inequity in the
world. With the financial crisis and
the reduction in budgets for health,
solving these problems will be even
harder.
Clearly we need to do more to im-
prove women's health.

Fund. Column provided by the American

Letter to the Editor
Sign not displayed 'in spirit of love'
I agree with Pastor Jones of the Dove World
Outreach Center. A Christian does have to
agree with his sign, which reads "Islam is of
the Devil."
Also, God does call Christians to preach
what Christ believes as truth. However, the
method of preaching doesn't have to involve
displaying such signs.
That method reminds me of the persons
yelling truth and lies in the middle of the Tur-
lington courtyard.
God taught Christians to preach his beliefs
in a spirit of love. It is time for us Christians to
rise above these acts we copy during political
campaigns believing that Christ has our back,
because he doesn't.

UF researchers find cheap way to battle bed bugs


By STEPHANIE LEVENTHAL
Alligator Writer

With bed bug season in full swing, UF
said it's time to turn up the heat.
Researchers at UF have engineered a low-
cost method to treat bed bug infestations us-
ing heat, according to a study published in
this month's issue of the Journal of Economic
Entomology.
Using 8-by-4-foot plastic and foam panels,
they constructed a chamber big enough to fit
over a king-size bed, said entomologist Phil
Koehler, a professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Inside, they put two heaters, two fans for
circulation and the items that needed treat-
ment. Using digital thermometers, they wait-
ed until the temperature reached 113 degrees
Fahrenheit, the ideal temperature needed to
kill every last bloodsucker.
"This is like cooking a turkey," he said.
"You don't take the turkey out of the oven
until it has reached a certain temperature and
it's cooked."
Moisture-resistant mattresses in the dorms
are made of plastic and do not allow the crit-
ters to crawl, making it a bad environment for
bed bugs, according to Wayne Walker, senior
pest control technician for the department of
housing and residence education.
However, infestations do occur in gradu-


ate and family-housing units.
At a conference in Baltimore, Md., this
month, Walker met with residence represen-
tatives from universities nationwide to dis-
cuss the topic.
"Some people said they had 10 to 12 calls
in one week," Walker said. "UF does not get
10 to 12 calls in one year."
But Koehler said students living off cam-
pus call him almost every day. He said they
risk invasions when they buy used furniture,
especially beds.
"You get a bargain," he said. "You get a
mattress and bed bugs."
The process takes from two to four hours
and is completely effective if done correctly,
said Roberto Pereira, study co-author and as-
sociate research scientist at the entomology
and nematology department.
The purpose of this study is to treat infes-
tations in intimate areas like beds and cloth-
ing without spraying insecticides, Pereira
said.
"The big problem is that bed bugs are
lazy, and they like to live in places close to
where they feed," Koehler said. "They come
out around 3 or 4 in the morning and suck
your blood while you're sleeping."
Pest control operators have tried using
heat treatments that cost $20,000 to $50,000
and warm the entire room, he said. Not only
is it too expensive, but it also takes more than


a day.
In addition, the use of pesticides is ineffi-
cient because bed bugs have claws instead of
sticky pads on their legs. They do not absorb
insecticides as other insects do.
He said the equipment used to create the
portable oven cost about $312 and is practi-
cal for areas that are hard to vacate such as
homeless shelters, hospitals and hotels.
"The big problem is that bed bugs
are lazy, and they like to live in
places close to where they feed."
Phil Koehler
UF professor


Koehler described a case where a paraple-
gic's wheelchair was infested. He could not
move his legs or feel the bites, and being ex-
posed to chemicals would have been harm-
ful for his health. He said the heat chamber is
ideal in these types of situations.
Pereira said they decided not to patent or
license the system so that it would be readily
accessible to pest control operators.
Walker said the technology is an integral
part of the UF treatment program, and he
uses pesticides in switch plates and tricky ar-
eas while the chamber cooks the bugs.
Adult bed bugs are about the size of an ap-


ple seed and the thickness of a business card,
he said, and they expand when they feed.
The newborns, on the other hand, are
about the size of a period at the end of a sen-
tence in 11-point font. They are hard to spot
because they are dark mahogany and trans-
parent, he said.
They do not walk or fly, but they are
skilled hitchhikers, catching rides on mov-
able objects such as luggage, clothing and
even laptops, according to Walker.
A female can lay three to five eggs per day,
and it takes about eight to 10 days for them to
hatch, he said. If they have a food source, bed
bugs can reach adulthood in about 30 days.
This can lead to infestations of more than 200
bugs in three months.
Although some people are unresponsive
to their bites, reactions involve itching and ir-
ritation, Walker said.
"The idea of sleeping in a bed with them
is what affects people psychologically," he
said.
But Pereira said they are safer than mos-
quitoes because they don't transmit diseases.
Bed bugs do not discriminate between hu-
man hosts and infest every social class and
nation across the globe, Walker said.
"You can find them in thousand-dollar
hotel rooms and homeless shelters and every
place in between," he said. "It has nothing to
do with cleanliness."

Machen goes abroad


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

A visit to Indonesia by Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton in March
has spurred UF President Bernie
Machen and other university heads
to travel there to foster relation-
ships with their universities.
Machen will focus on arranging
collaborations in the areas of agri-
culture, sustainability and urban
planning, he wrote in an e-mail.
About 20 universities, universi-
ty systems and colleges in the U.S.
will be represented, said Terance
Bigalke, director of education at
the East-West Center based in
Hawaii which helped organize
the trip.
Institutions represented include
Comell University, the Univer-
sity of Michigan and Miami-Dade
Community College, the nation's
largest community college.
The trip will run from July 26 to
Aug. 1 and could include visits to
educational facilities in four differ-
ent cities, including Jakarta, the na-
tion's capital, Bigalke said.
In addition to research partner-


ships, UF is interested in promot-
ing student exchange between UF
and Indonesian universities. Last
fall, UF had four foreign students
from Indonesia, down from 15 in
1998, according to UF's Web site.
Bigalke said one of the main
goals of the trip
is to double the
number of stu-
dents exchanged
between the two
countries.
About 8,000
Indonesians are
Machen currently study-
ing in the U.S.,
while fewer than 200 Americans
are studying in Indonesia, he said.
The Indonesian government,
aided by private donors, is paying
the expenses of the visitors while
they are in the country.
UF will have to pay for Ma-
chen's plane ticket, however, which
will likely cost about $3,000, Big-
alke said. UF spokeswoman Janine
Sikes said part of UF's costs will be
paid by a sponsor.
Machen's trip is preceded by
one to Iran in November with other
university presidents.


Dean Wright: College may expel Mac Arthur

of why his grandson Luke and
granddaughter Claire will grow
up without a mother.
Writing in a small Anglican
church in Milton, Conn., Goens
used a quiet balcony to focus his
thoughts and express his emo-
tions.
"It helped me heal by writ-
ing this story to go through
the journey of the death of my
daughter," he said. "Even if it
wasn't published it would have
been worthwhile for me to get
through that tragedy."
Goens' article was published
Feb. 18, 2007, in The New York
Times, almost three years after
Betsy's death.
He was not informed of the
plagiarism until he was contact-
ed by The Independent Florida
Alligator for an interview.
The passage that Mac Arthur
took from Goens' story, "Gener-
ations: A daughter's death, and
a quest for answers," read:
"The collision of life and
death tossed me and those close
to me into a cascade of disbe-
lief, fear, anger, confusion and
grief.... At that moment, as the
crushing weight of death de-
scended upon all of us, I prom-
ised my sweet daughter that I
would seek justice for this trag-
edy. I would find the answers,


hold people accountable."
The passage that appeared
in Mac Arthur's story about
a Colorado woman who died
in childbirth titled "Grief over
pregnant mother's death over-
whelms family," read:
"The collision of life and
death plays out in this nonde-
script home at the end of the
cul-de-sac in a quiet northeast
Colorado Springs neighbor-
hood. King stares blankly...
Mike King stands up, carrying
the weight of a man tossed into
a cascade of disbelief, despair
and depression... the crush-
ing weight of death descended
upon her family, her friends, the
entire second floor of Memorial
Hospital North."
This fall, Mac Arthur will en-
ter her third year as a journalism
and economics major. A meeting
is scheduled for Wednesday to
discuss the consequences of her
actions, which might include ex-
pulsion from the journalism col-
lege, according to John Wright,
dean of the college.
"We at least want to have a
chance to talk to her," Wright
said. "I've said before, we de-
plore plagiarism of any kind."
To encourage integrity, stu-
dents in the College of Journal-
ism and Communications are re-
quired to take an ethics course.

Kickstand board member praises student initiative


BICYCLE, from page 1

people repair their own bikes.
So far a total of 12bikes have been
repaired according to Johnny Zoko-
vitch, founder of the Gainesville
Catholic Worker House, which he
runs out of his private home.
Zokovitch thinks it is a great
thing the former UF students and
The Kickstand employees are do-
ing, he said.
"It showed a lot of initiative on
their parts to address a need that is


really apparent to people who are
homeless," he said. "These bikes
will help people who are trying to
help themselves get back on the
path to self-sufficiency and get out
of poverty."
Zokovitch shared a story of a
homeless minister who received a
bicycle on Monday.
"He ministers to those who are
less fortunate than he is," Zoko-
vitch said. "The camp sites that he
goes to are far apart, but now this
bike will make it easier for him to


bring them supplies."
Nam Nguyen, the UF alumnus
who bought the bikes, said he saw
the listing for the unwanted bikes
on Craigslist and
Local thought it would be a
e good opportunity to
help people.
"The bikes only cost us about $5
or $6 a piece," he said. "But I figured
people would appreciate the bike a
lot more [than $5 or $6] because this
gives a form of transportation to
people who can't afford it."


Zokovitch said it was good in-
stinct on their part to satisfy a need
that is overlooked.
"People usually think food,
clothing and blankets as things
homeless people need, but a bike is
a real upgrade in a person's ability
to be able to make changes in their
lives," he said.
"For [the homeless] the bike rep-
resented a real sense of possibility
and hope."
Kelly Jones, one of the former UF
students helping with the bike proj-


ect, thanked The Kickstand for pro-
viding them with the time, space,
supplies and expertise they needed
to repair the bikes.
Rajeeb Das, board member of
The Kickstand, said that the com-
munity bike shop was started to
help people like Nguyen and Jones
and those who receive help from the
Gainesville Catholic Worker House.
"That's exactly why we exist,"
Das said, "to help people like them,
who don't know how to fix a bike or
have the resources to do it."

Meyer dispels rumor


UF coach Urban Meyer once again denied rumors Saturday that he will leave Gainesville to become Notre
Dame's coach. Meyer has a contract with the Gators through 2013 and called the rumors "nonsense."


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Amid another round of specu-
lation about his future, which
seems to become a topic of debate
every few months, Urban Meyer
once again restated his commit-
ment to UF.
Saturday, Meyer made an ap-
pearance at the 15th Bob Dooley
Invitational, a golf tournament that
benefits STOP! Children's Cancer,
and spoke to those in attendance.
During the speech, Meyer ad-
dressed the latest rumors, which
he described as "nonsense," that
came about as a result of a con-
troversial column in The Mobile
(Ala.) Press-Register.
"I'm not going to Notre Dame.
Ever," Meyer said at the event, ac-
cording to The Gainesville Sun.
"I'm going to be the coach at Flor-
ida for a long time, as long as they
want me."
Meyer's contract with UF is
good through 2013, but he has
previously referred to Notre Dame
as his "dream job." He was an as-
sistant coach in South Bend, Ind.,
for five years under Lou Holtz, but
he chose UF over Notre Dame in


2004.
The rumors of Meyer's depar-
ture after this season were most re-
cently stoked by Paul Finebaum's
column in the Press-Register on
Tuesday. Finebaum wrote that,
despite Meyer's stated desire to
remain at UF, he will be leaving
for Notre Dame after this coming
season and repeatedly called the
coach's character into question.
"I'm not going to Notre
Dame. Ever. I'm going to
be the coach at Florida
for a long time, as long as
they want me."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

Former UF coach Steve Spurri-
er previously fueled the fire by dis-
cussing the rumors in May during
a radio interview, ironically on the
Paul Finebaum Radio Network.
Whether Meyer eventually
leaves for Notre Dame or stays at
UF until his coaching career comes
to an end, his words will reassure
players, boosters and recruits of

NCAA Football 10 fills void


In every college football off-season,
there are five days worth circling on
the calendar.
Three of those National Signing
Day, the start of spring practice and
the spring game are well behind us.
The fifth, the start of two-a-days, is still
about three weeks away.
The other, however, is today: the re-
lease of EA Sports' annual NCAA Foot-
ball video game.
This year's edition, NCAA Football
10, promises more improvements I
saw a list online of 27 specific advance-
ments this year's game has made over
last year's. Some are interesting, but
most are ridiculous.
The updates range from confus-
ingly broad ("more stadiums/stadi-
um updates") to just plain confusing
("procedural awareness"), and from
ultimately useless ("marching bands in
the pregame, including some authentic
team-specific ones") to Erin Andrews.
No, seriously, the Internet's beloved
Sideline Princess and UF alum will be
featured as a sideline reporter and will
help track the career of your created
player in the "Road to Glory" mode.

Early re-
ports say the
Day 1 version of
NCAA Football
10 will need up-
dating due to the
game shipping
with rosters and
player models
that could best
be described as


"a disaster."
From what I've seen on EA's Team-
builder site, several teams don't have
all of their new freshmen and still list
some of their departed seniors.
My favorite mistake is that the in-
game models of four of the nation's
best quarterbacks Tim Tebow (aka
"QB #15" per NCAA rules), Sam Brad-
ford ("QB #14"), Colt McCoy ("QB
#12") and Jevan Snead ("QB #4") all
look nearly identical, but none of them
look like their real-life counterparts.
That's right up there with the fact that
UF's Pouncey twins don't even look the
same in the game. How do you mess

5) GOLF -2008 US OPEN: TIGER WOODS DE-
FEATS ROCCO MEDIATE IN 19-HOLE PLAYOFF
Since this list has to do with enjoying the
moment live, it admittedly takes a hit due to
the gallery nature of golf. The odds are if I
had been following Tiger's group, it would've
been very difficult for me to see a thing, even
if I was fortunate enough to enjoy the emo-
tions of everyone around. On the flip side,
it gains points for the revelation that would
come out later: Tiger played with an injured
ACL. It certainly isn't new for Woods to cap-
ture the hearts of sports fans as he seemingly
has the ability to make every clutch shot as it is
needed, including do-or-die putts on the 18th
hole Sunday and Monday to extend the tour-

spectacular since each outcome
(and therefore Michael Phelps'
historic quest for eight golds)
was in doubt. Jason Lezak's mi-
raculous comeback in the final
leg of the relay was one of the
most impressive anchor accom-
plishments I'd ever seen. Follow
that up with Phelps' touch to
save the quest in the 100m fly,
and these Olympics were sim-
ply amazing. He seemed to have
lost after taking an extra stroke,
but it paid off as he beat Milorad
Cavic to the wall.

3) BASKETBALL 1998 NBA
FINALS GAME 6: MICHAEL
JORDAN HITS CHAMPIONSHIP-
WINNING JUMP SHOT TO LIFT
BULLS
This will be engrained in my
mind as the way Jordan should
have ended his career. It was
storybook perfect, swishing a
jumper over Bryon Russell to
clinch the Bulls' sixth NBA title
in eight years. He scored 45 and
hit the game-winning basket
with 5.2 seconds left. His Aimess
was all primed for the perfect
conclusion with the snapshot of
Jordan holding his wrist in the
follow-through of his jumpshot.


Did he push off of Russell? Sure.
Did anyone care? Absolutely
not. I never got a chance to see
him play live one of my big-
gest regrets and what better
day than this?

2) TENNIS 2008 WIMBLEDON
MEN'S SINGLES FINAL: (2) RA-
FAEL NADAL DEFEATS (1) ROG-
ER FEDERER 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5),
6-7 (8), 9-7
This rain-filled, all-day affair
ranks as the pinnacle of my ten-
nis-watching experience. It's un-
believable to me that 67 percent
of respondents to a ESPN Sports-
Nation poll voted this year's
final as better than last year.
Federer-Nadal had so many
more storylines even if it didn't
have 30 fifth-set games. This
was clay-court specialist Nadal
halting Federer's attempt at a
modem-era record sixth straight
Wimbledon title. It was No. 2
(Nadal) stripping No. 1 (Feder-
er) of his throne, the No. 1 world
ranking that the Swiss star held
for 237 consecutive weeks. The
epic showdown lasted a record
4 hours, 48 minutes but felt like
even more of a back-and-forth
struggle due to the on-again,
off-again rain (a good argument
for the roof Wimbledon now
has). Federer's crushing defeat


and Nadal's career-changing
victory ended more than seven
hours after it first began. At the
time, the match appeared to be
the passing of the torch that
is, until Nadal was injured and
Federer won this year's French
Open and Wimbledon to regain
the top world ranking.

1) COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2006
ROSE BOWL (BCS NATIONAL
CHAMPIONSHIP): NO. 2 TEXAS
DEFEATS NO. 1 USC 41-38
More than three years later,
this game still resonates in my
heart as the best college foot-
ball game ever, if not my favor-
ite sporting event. Remember
when Vince Young was the talk
of the nation, and not for his
off-the-field despair? This was
the former Texas quarterback in
his prime, leading his team to a
come-from-behind victory with
a game-winning 8-yard touch-
down run into the comer of the
end zone on a do-or-die 4th-
and-5 with 19 seconds left fol-
lowed by a rush to complete the
two-point conversion. Don't for-
get: This was the USC dynasty
at its highest point. The Trojans
came into Pasadena riding Matt
Leinart and Reggie Bush, both
Heisman Trophy winners, to a
34-game winning streak.

that up? They're identical twins!
An online update, if your con-
sole is connected to its correspond-
ing online service, will hopefully
fix the mistakes before they even
see the light of day.
Despite these mistakes, I would
still be in line, spending money
I really can't afford to spend, to
buy NCAA Football 10. (I say "I
would" because it simply can't be
the case this year, as my Xbox 360
is currently down with its second
red-ring failure in three years.)
For Gators fans, the NCAA
Football series provides an op-
portunity to get an early glimpse,
whether realistic or unrealistic, of
this year's team.
I remember turning on NCAA
Football 09 for the first time, play-
ing an exhibition with UF and
saying, "This is the greatest video
game team of all time."
Despite my extreme hyperbole,
there was some truth to that state-
ment. In video game football, speed
is king. It's why everyone used to


turn the fatigue setting off in Mad-
den, play as the Atlanta Falcons,
run pre-dogfighting Michael Vick
around the field for 60 minutes like
a man possessed and crush their
opponents' hopes, dreams and
gameplans in the process.
Last season, the Gators had all
kinds of speed at their disposal on
the field and on your video game
console of choice.
Whether it was Percy Harvin's
ability to score whenever he had
the ball or the secondary's ability
to read plays and break up passes,
UF's team speed was unrivaled
across the country.
NCAA Football 10's player rat-
ings reflect that and predict more
of the same, as no UF running back,
wide receiver, safety or corerback
is below 90 in the speed rating.
And in case you were wonder-
ing, it looks like Tebow is rated 99
overall, the highest possible in the
game. Shocking, I know.
I just hope they added a digital
version of "The Promise" on the
wall outside of The Swamp as one
of their promised "stadium up-
dates."


Meyer's reassurance will have strong impact on keeping future recruits


FOOTBALL, from page 19

his commitment to UF.
Jamie Newberg, a recruiting analyst for Ri-
vals.com, said Meyer was wise to make such a
public statement.
Opposing coaches have already used the
rumors to pull recruits away from the Gators.
UF 2010 commit Matt Elam, the nation's No.
5 overall prospect, told Rivals.com he heard
rumors during his recruitment that Meyer will


leave Gainesville after the 2009 season.
Many recruits could be swayed by the idea
that they would be finishing their careers un-
der another coach.
"You would think these kids pick schools
because of the schools, but recruiting is about
relationships," Newberg said. "And that's the
main thing as to why kids pick schools: the re-
lationships they build up with these coaches."
Coaches have made similar statements
about their future, however, including Ala-
bama coach Nick Saban. Then the Miami Dol-


phins head coach, Saban said he would not be
the Crimson Tide's coach less than two weeks
before accepting the Alabama job.
"You never know, but I
understand why he did it.
It's probably smart because
they're probably hearing a
Football lot of feedback from kids that
coaches are saying he's gone,
then you've got other coaches
talking about it," Newberg said. "It's probably
why he nipped it in the bud now rather than


waiting until if and when a job opens up."
Despite Meyer's recent and firm denial,
however, Newberg said the Gators' two na-
tional championships in three years make
Meyer a potential candidate for any job that
opens up.
So this likely won't be the last time he will
be the subject of rumors.
"Things will be floating around anyway,
which is something that success brings," New-
berg said. "It's something he's always going to
have to address."

Calathes' success rare bright spot for disappointing Gators team


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

In a disappointing season for
the Gators, Nick Calathes' suc-
cess was the silver lining.
Although the 6-foot-6 guard's
two years in Gainesville weren't
filled with team success in the
way previous years were, Cal-
athes left his mark on the men's
basketball program as one of the
most versatile, talented play-
ers to ever take the floor in the
O'Connell Center.
Calathes, who left after his
sophomore year to pursue a
pro career in
Greece, was the
only player in
the country last
season to av-
erage at least
15 points, five
rebounds and
six assists per
game. He led the
team in points (17.2), assists (6.4)
and finished third on the team in
rebounds (5.3) while averaging
more than 33 minutes per game.
He broke UF's single-season
assists record in his first year,
then proceeded to top his own
mark in his sophomore year with
231. Despite only playing two
years, Calathes' 452 assists rank
third all-time at UF.
In his freshman year, Calathes
joined Corey Brewer as the only


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Former UF guard Nick Calathes was the only player in the nation to average 15 points, five rebounds and
six assists per game in 2008-09. He holds two of the three triple-doubles in Gators' history.
Gators to record a triple-double, Calathes had to fill many roles stat sheets came as a result of his
racking up 11 points, 13 rebounds for the Gators during his two exceptional court vision and nat-
and 11 assists in a blowout of years. He was the team's primary ural feel for the game.

Despite being a unanimous
selection to the All-Southeastern
Conference First Team in 2009
and logging sensational stats
throughout his career, Calathes
may not be remembered as fond-
ly as other UF basketball stars
due to his team's lack of success
- two straight NIT appearances
- and his failure to step up in the
clutch.
If Calathes had stayed at UF,
he may have been able to further
improve on his already outstand-
ing statistics, as he was already
one of UF's most prolific scorers.
His 1,170 points were more than
any other Gator after their fresh-
man and sophomore years.
If he returned, a junior season
could have given Calathes the
opportunity to lead the Gators
to their first NCAA Tournament
berth since winning back-to-back
national titles, as heralded fresh-
man Kenny Boynton and George-
town transfer Vernon Macklin
have joined the team.
For putting up impressive
numbers throughout his career
and being a much-needed bright
spot during an otherwise dis-
appointing year for the Gators'
men's basketball team, Nick Ca-
lathes is the alligatorSports No. 4
UF Athlete of 2008-09.

BY THE NUMBERS: Calathes earned
two third-place votes, one fifth-
place vote, two sixth-place votes
and was left off one ballot.


Electrifying playmaker Harvin fights through injury for BCS glory


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

Similar to the leadup to the
NFL Draft, Percy Harvin's health
would be a major storyline for the
Gators' two postseason games
this season.
He would not play against Al-
abama in the Southeastern Con-
ference Championship Game.
He would make his trium-
phant return to lead UF past
Oklahoma in the BCS National
Championship Game.
Each told part of the Percy
Harvin Saga.
His absence in Atlanta was
due to an ankle sprain suffered
against Florida State a week prior
to the SEC title game. Harvin's
injury status was the story lead-
ing up to kickoff and Gators fans'
hearts sank as the then-junior
came out not dressed for action.
Harvin said after the game
that the trainer's final decision
was one of the hardest things he
ever had to hear, but he used the
opportunity to inspire his team-
mates with a pregame speech.
"I basically told (the team) this
is it," Harvin said after the game.
"Don't come back in the locker
room if you (don't) leave it all
out on the field, or you'll have to
face me and look me in the eye
and tell me you hadn't given ev-


erything."
Prior to the Gators' showdown
in Miami, injury news again cap-
tured the headlines.
The star playmaker would turn
in one of his best performances as
a Gator against Oklahoma, log-
ging 171 yards and a touchdown
on 14 touches. His 122 rushing
yards was the third-best running
performance in a BCS title game.
"That was one of the gutti-
est performances I've ever been
around," coach Urban Meyer
said after the
game. "We've
got three years
together, and
the one thing
about (him is)
the brighter the
lights, the better
Harvin he plays. He's a
big-time game performer."
While widely known for his
sharp cuts and quick speed, his
stats also tell the tale of a domi-
nating playmaker.
He was one of four players
in the country to average more
than 20 yards per carry in a game
(minimum of seven carries) when
he rumbled for a career-high 167
yards on eight carries against
South Carolina on Nov. 15. Har-
vin ended his career having
scored a touchdown in his last 15
games, the best such mark in the
country.


Former UF wide receiver Percy Harvin had the third most rushing yards (122) ever in a BCS National
Championship Game as he helped the Gators to a 24-14 win against Oklahoma.
