Shot student makes bail


He is recovering at Shands


By MATT HARRINGER
and MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writers

Kofi Adu-Brempong is still re-
covering in the hospital, but he's
no longer under Alachua County
Sheriff's Office custody.
The UF graduate student's
sister-in-law, Cynthia Agyeg-
mang, said the family posted his
$10,000 bail through bondsman
Rodney Long, an Alachua Coun-
ty commissioner, in order to pre-
vent Adu-Brempong from being
moved to jail.
Before the bail was posted,
Agyegmang said she was not


allowed to see or speak to her
brother-in-law and said she had
no idea his feet were shackled.
Adu-Brempong was shot by a
University Police Department of-
ficer on March 2
after a standoff
with police in
his Corry Vil-
lage apartment,
according to po-
*i lice reports.
Long He was
charged with
aggravated assault and resisting
arrest, according to reports.
The Alachua County Sheriff's
Office had been paying for treat-


ment and for two ASO officers
posted outside Adu-Brempong's
room since he was checked into
the hospital under a pseudonym,
said Alachua County Jail spokes-
man Eugene Morris.
The family didn't post bail
sooner because Adu-Brempong
was in the hospital receiving
treatment from wounds caused
by the police, Agyegmang said.
They paid it on Tuesday because
they were worried Adu-Brem-
pong would be transferred to the
Alachua County Jail.
According to Keith Yearwood,
the graduate student who took
over Adu-Brempong's geography
class, Adu-Brempong's tongue is

Pride Awareness


Month kicks off
By LATIESHA RIVIERA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Actor Wilson Cruz will be at the Arrendondo Caf6 in the
Reitz Union tonight at 7 to kick off Pride Awareness Month.
Cruz, who is known for his recent role in "He's Just Not
That into You," is an advocate for the lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgendered and queer community. The event is co-spon-
sored by Accent.
"He's an excellent advocate and star for the community,"
Ricky Carter, co-marketing director for the program, said.
UF's Pride Student Union will celebrate self-
On expression and acceptance at its 10th annual
Campus Pride Awareness Month in April.
More than 25 events are scheduled, including
an amateur drag show and a queer ball.
Carter hopes people will learn about their community and
ultimately stop stereotyping it. He said people don't realize a
choice of words may offend close friends or family members
struggling with their sexual orientation.
About $25,000 was spent on the month's events. The pro-
gram's events are free and open to the public.

UF cancels concert


By VERONICA DANIEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
An unwritten law has moved
the UF administration to cancel an
indie-rock concert because it was
scheduled during exam week.
Reitz Union Board Entertainment
president Kristen Huff released a
statement on Facebook to explain
the cancellation to the more than 700
people who confirmed they would
be attending.
"In this case, the band did con-
firm, and we had no reason to think
there would be a problem on our
end because there never has been
before," Huff wrote. "We are deeply
saddened to make this announce-
ment and cancel a show we've al-
ready announced."
RUB has been in negotiations
with Band of Horses since Decem-
ber.
"It was really heartbreaking for


us," said Bailey Parke, a RUB En-
tertainment Bands Committee co-
director. "We had something we
really cared about taken away from
us."
"It was really heartbreak-
ing for us."
Bailey Parke
RUB Entertainment Bands Commit-
tee co-director

After hearing the administration
wanted to cancel the concert, Huff
and RUB graduate adviser, Sarah
Welch, appealed the decision to the
Division of Student Affairs, but the
two made no progress.
RUB is working to find another
band to perform on either April 22
or 23 by using the leftover budget
from the canceled concert but hasn't
submitted any official offers yet.
Band of Horses was going to be paid
$11,000 for performing.

Carl Moore was
not at practice for
the second-straight
day because he is
taking care of "per-
sonal business," ac-
cording to offensive
coordinator Steve
Addazio.

LOCAL
Student group hosts job
fair for about 30 women
Barbara Fair started her first
job at 16, and she continued
working for more than 40 years
before getting fired in 2009.
"I've always had a steady
full-time job," said Fair, a
Gainesville resident. "To say
getting laid off was a shock
would be an understatement."
More than 30 other women
joined Fair and attended the
Women's Career Expo at the
Santa Fe Center for Innovation
and Economic Development on
Wednesday.
UF's Students in Free Enter-
prise club hosted the event to
help women re-enter the work
force by inviting local employ-
ers and program coordinators to
attend.
Fair said having to start over
again to find a job has been
harder than she expected.
"I still have a few more years
before I can even think about
retirement," Fair said. "I'm not
even sure what employers are
looking for anymore."
Nancy Griffin, the coordina-
tor of Focus on the Future, an
organization that helps home-
makers get jobs, said many
women are intimidated to re-
enter the work force or to look
for another job.
Expos like this can help
women adjust to the evolving
job market, according to Grif-
fin.
"We're not focused on teach-
ing completely new skills, but
updating and utilizing the skills
they might already have," Grif-
fin said.

Fla. H1N1 cases steady


* OTHER SOUTHERN STATES
REPORT A SPIKE.

By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
After several southeastern states
reported an HIN1 outbreak this week,
health officials in Florida and through-
out the country are refreshing vaccina-
tion efforts in hopes of preventing a
third wave of the virus.
Georgia, Alabama and South Caro-
lina all reported a surge of HIN1 cases
this week, a trend that is baffling health
officials because spring usually marks
the end of the flu season. The number
of cases reported in Florida has re-
mained steady.
"If anything, this influenza virus
has been unpredictable," said Paul My-
ers, assistant director of the Alachua
County Health Department.
There have been 215 HiNl-related


deaths in Florida and seven in Alachua
County since April 2009.
There have been 1,012 HiNl-related
hospitalizations in Georgia and 72 flu-
related deaths, according to the Geor-
gia Department of Community Health.
While Florida counties stopped
tracking the number of individual cas-
es around September, health officials
have not seen any unusual spikes in the
number of statewide cases, said Susan
Smith, press secretary for
Local the Florida Department
News of Health.
"We're seeing exactly
what we're expecting to see," Smith
said. "I can't speculate on why that's
happening in Georgia."
Like the rest of Florida, Alachua
County's flu rate has remained steady,
an achievement the Alachua County
Health Department credits to its vacci-
nation efforts. So far, more than 45,000
have been vaccinated in Alachua
County.

Author talks about travels


She received a plaque


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

When UF alumna Fran-
ces Mayes told her family
she was moving to Tuscany,
they thought she had com-
pletely lost it.
When she returned to her
home in the U.S., she found
the inspiration to write a
bestseller.
Speaking to a crowd
of about 275 in Pugh Hall
Wednesday night, Mayes,
author of "Under the Tuscan
Sun," discussed her travels
to Italy and answered ques-


tions submitted by the audi-
ence.
"Under the Tuscan Sun"
is a memoir describing
Mayes' restoration of a Tus-
can villa.
During her presentation,
she read an
UAlmniF excerpt from
Alumni her new
book, "Ev-
ery Day in Tuscany: Seasons
of an Italian Life," which
was released in March.
"If you find your place,
you're very lucky," Mayes
said. "I found my place."
After the presentation,


she was awarded a plaque
recognizing her as a distin-
guished alumna. Beaming
with pride, she noted how
she never thought she could
win such an honor.
She also signed copies of
her books
"Wouldn't my professors
be surprised?" she joked.
Mayes gave advice to
current students, encourag-
ing aspiring writers to read
heavily and write without
censoring themselves.
According to officials
from the UF College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences,
Mayes was not paid for her
appearance.


Author and UF alumna Frances Mayes reads an excerpt from one of her memoirs
of living in Tuscany, Italy, in Pugh Hall Wednesday night.

UF physics professors


break energy record


ouur.sy o l iVl idUollaDUoradiui
The Compact Muon Solenoid detector collects data about collisions in the Large Hadron Collider, which
collides particles at high speeds. About 40 UF professors and students worked on the project.


* THEY WORKED TOGETHER
IN SWITZERLAND.

By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new, unexplored area of sci-
ence just opened up, and UF plans
to reap the benefits.
About 40 UF professors and stu-
dents worked in Switzerland on the
Large Hadron Collider, the world's
largest particle accelerator, as part
of an international collaboration,
said Guenakh Mitselmakher, leader
of the UF research team and a UF
physics professor.
On Tuesday morning, the collid-
er broke a small-scale energy record
and finally collided particles.
The particles collide in a detec-
tor that collects data about the colli-
sion and sends it to the researchers
involved.


The collider works by taking par-
ticles, the building blocks of atoms,
and smashing them together inside a
vacuum at enormously fast speeds.
Future experiments with the col-
lider will recreate the phenomenon
of the Big Bang on a miniature scale,
Mitselmakher said.
Mitselmakher and Darin Acosta,
deputy physics coordinator for the
Compact Muon Solenoid team and
a UF physics professor, said it took
17 years to build the detector and
$10 billion to build the collider.
UF will use the collider to find
answers to problems that have chal-
lenged scientists for decades, such as
an explanation for dark, or invisible,
matter that makes up about 20 per-
cent of the universe, Mitselmakher
said.
"Now we have confidence that
the experiments will actually pro-
duce results," he said. "What results,
we don't know yet."


Adu-Brempong is being fed through a feeding tube attached to his neck


BAIL, from page 1


stitched to the roof of his mouth and a bul-
let is lodged in the second vertebra in his
neck.
Adu-Brempong is also being fed
through a feeding tube attached through
his neck, Yearwood said.
To prevent bed sores, attending nurses
rotate him from side to side every two
hours, he said.


Morris said Adu-Brempong would not
have been transferred to the jail until his
doctors permitted him to leave the hospi-
tal.
If Adu-Brempong had been transferred
to the jail, they would have been able to
take care of his medical needs at its infir-
mary, which is staffed with a doctor all
day, Morris said.
Adu-Brempong was shot by Keith
Smith, an officer on the UPD Critical In-


cident Response Team, after the police
entered Adu-Brempong's apartment and
found him with a knife and a rod, accord-
ing to police reports.
Police had been alerted
Special that Adu-Brempong may have
Report needed mental or emotional
help.
But Agyegmang said she had no knowl-
edge of her brother-in-law having mental
or emotional problems.


"I'm not a doctor, but I don't see any
evidence of that," Agyegmang said after
seeing him.
Agyegmang said Adu-Brempong's
lawyer, Larry Turner, told the family this
week it may be receiving good news, but
she does not know if it is in relation to the
current investigation of the shooting by
the Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment.

Westboro Baptist Church

not welcome in Gainesville


F r a city that prides itself in being environmentally friend-
ly, Gainesville is about to get a heap of garbage dumped
on it hate-spewing, bigoted, "Christ-loving" garbage.
It's been announced that the Westboro Baptist Church, a ho-
mophobic cult of inbred hillbillies from Kansas, will be coming
to our hedonistic hellhole of a city to "save us" April 18.
These are the same people who picket outside the funerals
of slain American soldiers with signs that say "Thank God for
Dead Soldiers" and "God Hates Cripple Soldiers."
How bad are these people? They were repulsive enough to
make Fox News' liberal-bashing leprechaun Sean Hannity call
Shirley Phelps-Roper, whose father, Fred, founded the church,
"sick" and a "twisted human being." These sacks of biblical
excrement make our furniture-dealing, hate-mongering token
crazies at the Dove World Outreach Center look like the Os-
monds on Vicodin.
We don't care if you believe in God, L. Ron, the Flying Spa-
ghetti Monster, that very handsome black guy in the Old Spice
commercials riding the horse backward or nobody at all -
these people need to be stopped. This isn't about whether you
go to bed at night with a man, woman or goat; this is about
preventing our city from being infected with a group of people
who should've been cut down by the scythe of natural selection
a long time ago.
Whatever it takes short of ending up in handcuffs to stand
up to these people, do it. If it means making signs of your own,
color away. If it means calling upon Moses, Brigham Young or
Morgan Freeman for divine intervention, pray away. If it means
shedding all your garments, jumping into piles and creating
massive coitus carnivals so repulsive that it drives them back
west, thrust away.
Just don't try to appeal to their hearts; there's nobody home.


Getting Specific


The fourth film in the
"Pirates of the Carib-
bean" franchise cer-
tainly caused a cheer from
half of us and a groan from
the other half, but it's very
likely that we will all see it.
But, since the announce-
ment that it will be released
sometime in the spring of
2011, we haven't heard
much about "Pirates of the
Caribbean: On Stranger
Tides."
Recently, casting calls for
the film have been released
with an interesting stipula-
tion: Women with breast
implants need not apply.
Now before we start
praising Disney for using
"real women" in their films
and teaching girls that you
don't need to alter your
body to be beautiful, let's
take a look at the call sheet.
It reads, "Beautiful Fe-
male Fit Models. Must be


5'7-5'8, Size 4 or 6 NO
BIGGER OR SMALLER.
Age 18-25. Must have a lean
dancerbody. MUST have
real breasts. Do not submit
if you have implants."
Oh, we see now. Women
in this film can't have im-
plants because those aren't
natural. But they have to fit
a very specific height within
two inches and will be mea-
sured by their dress size,
which is an ever-changing
nightmare for most women.
And in case we were
wondering if Disney was
trying to get women with-
out surgical alterations to
be more true to the time
period, we made ourselves
think again. Women in the
time of Jack Sparrow were
usually more sought after if
they were busty lasses with
big hips and chests, not so
much "lean dancerbod[ies]."
Thanks again, Disney.

Columnist starts anti-Google cult


As Google and China continue their convoluted Mexi-
can standoff across the South China Sea and our
country slogs through divisive political struggles
and rampant joblessness, I decided to do something proac-
tive and start a cult.
China isn't fighting Google for the right to keep its popu-
lace in the dark; it is fighting to reverse our shared cosmic
destiny and somehow knock our planet off the unstoppable
death spiral Google has concocted for all of mankind. If you
can open your mind to this possibility (and you don't mind
recreational farming or wearing purple capes while danc-
ing to flute music), you may want to think about joining my
cult.
History is written by the winners. If my calculations are
correct, your children's children's literate friends will one
day read about the brave handful of committed compatriots
who rose up and joined forces in the face of oppressive logic
and the crushing weight of tyrannical level-headedness.
Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the man who united China 200
years before Baby Jesus lazed around the manger, saw how
the world would end in a vision of the apocalypse that makes
up the core belief system of my cult. His ancient prophecy
guided China to begin preparing against Google and the
harbinger of doom that Google would unleash on the world:
Sarah Palin.
Qin Shi Huang knew his Great Wall of China would only
keep Google at bay for a finite amount of time, so he built
China into the final barrier against the information giant.
The emperor understood the fact that time itself was actually
speeding up as humanity began powering communications
revolutions which not only made life seemingly move faster
but also made the earth spin faster.
We see the consequences of our planet spinning out of
control as the state of balance innate to nature triggers earth-
quakes at certain specific longitudes to slow the extra spin of


*the earth. Qin Shi Huang's dclosed-off
country is humanity's only answer
to the catastrophic damage Google
plans to unleash upon the world in
2012 with Sarah Palin's inevitable
presidential campaign.
Tommy Maple Google has orchestrated the entire
letters@alligator org political career of Sarah Palin, know-
ing full well that she is purpose-built
to stoke the most passionate response possible in carbon-
based life forms. If her infectious folksyisms and diamond-
hard homespun moral certainty somehow get through to the
subconscious mind of billions of Chinese citizens, the global
Google searches of her leading up to the election in 2012 will
send the earth spinning out of control.
This will all hit the mainstream press when the real burial
tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang is finally unearthed in early
2012, but by then it will be much too late.
As the planet convulses and skips from one apocalyptic
moment to the next a la the recent pseudo-documentary
"2012," it will be patently obvious why the famous terracotta
warriors buried by Qin Shi Huang have faced Alaska for mil-
lennia.
Forget what you think you know about the flow of time
and the idea that history is anything but the uncoiling of fate,
because you clearly have not mastered deterministic quan-
tum mechanics or somehow injected enough crushed peyote
buttons intravenously into your ocular sockets to be a cult
leader.
But I digress. All you need to know are the basics of our
impending date with destiny and to remember to quit your
job and join my cult today while it is still in the planning
stages.

Letters to the Editor
Ladies night a win-win situation
Who is complaining about ladies night?
Ladies night is and will always be a win-
win-win situation. Ladies get to enjoy free
drinks, whether they're attractive enough to
get guys to open their wallet or not. Men get
to enjoy having more women in attendance to
talk to, and they don't have to feel obligated to
buy drinks for them. Businesses get increased
sales and tips as women come for their free
watered-down wells and guys pour in to talk
to them.
I can only see two types of people who
would have a problem with any of this. One
group is the feminists who think guys are
preying on wasted chicks all night. The other
is the boys so frightened by the opposite sex
that they don't see the opportunity it presents,
only that girls get free stuff and they don't. To
them: sack up and shut up.
To the feminists: Yes, we men are going
to attempt to use this to our advantage. My
only word of advice to the women is to not get
completely hammered. That way you choose
a decent candidate for your late night esca-
pades and, more importantly, so you aren't
completely worthless to us in the sack. Oh,
and tell your less attractive friends not to try
tugging you away when you find a more en-
tertaining ride home.

Ladies night is discriminatory
Recently, the city of Gainesville's Office of
Equal Opportunity has brought to light many
local establishments that are in violation of
the city's discrimination ordinance. These
businesses frequently sponsor promotional
activities designed to specifically attract fe-
males, giving preference to one gender over


the other.
These activities violate the discrimination
ordinance by granting women free or cheap
alcoholic drinks and admission, while con-
tinuing to charge men. In Wednesday's paper,
Dana Rogers made good points in favor of this
issue, speaking about the vulnerability placed
on women after binge drinking in an allotted
time frame.
If that doesn't bother you, imagine your
professor granting extra credit to women only.
Does that seem fair? When a group is blatantly
discriminated against, everyone suffers. One
important thing to keep in mind with this is-
sue: The discrimination ordinance only pro-
tects citizens from drink specials aimed at a
certain population everyone should be on
a level playing field.

Letter about columnist was off base
In response to Ryan Weiss' letter to the
editor yesterday, I would say that a student-
run newspaper is the perfect place for a col-
umn like CJ Pruner's. I thought his column
was great, and it gave me a good laugh before
class. I don't think anyone expects you to take
these columns too seriously have you ever
read Tommy Maple's columns?
And next time you suggest calling Pruner
a "cynical moron" instead of a journalism ju-
nior, why don't you try reading some of his
actual articles? I would start with his four-part
piece about Mormon missionaries, which is
featured on the Church of Latter Day Saints'
Mormon Times Web site. So why don't you
just relax and stop taking these things so seri-
ously?

Guest column

Protestors should move on


Amidst all the discussion about
health care reform, infamous
Bush-bashing organization An-
swer (Act Now to Stop War & End Rac-
ism) held its annual war protest recently
in Washington, D.C., to mark the sev-
enth anniversary of the United States'
congress-approved invasion of Iraq.
The protest garnered about 2,500
people downtown according to police.
As in previous years, the gathering was
basically comprised of well-educated,
well-informed pacifists hippies -
stomping around Washington yelling
"Indict Bush!"
The protest itself was headlined by a
speech by former presidential candidate
Ralph Nader, followed by a very ironic,
violent trampling of a Dick Cheney
dummy outside of the Halliburton of-
fices. Finally, someone figured out no
one cared about anything they were do-
ing, and everyone went home.
So now as I sit here curled up with
a bowl of Ramen watching my hero
Glenn Beck on Fox News and I offer
you my brief commentary on an incred-
ibly successful and thought-provoking
protest. I'm going to offer you a shock-
ing piece of information.
George Walker Bush is no longer the
president of the United States. Wow!
Here's a memo to Answer and to
pacifists in general: When attacking the
federal government for their presence
in a foreign country, at least attack the


Matt Powers administration
carrying out the
Speaking Out war.
I know, I
know, politics are complicated, and of-
ten times liberals can't handle juggling
more than one issue at a time, but unless
I'm mistaken, didn't President Obama
just send some 30,000 more troops to
Afghanistan? Did the Bush adminis-
tration's initial military action in 2003
write President Obama a blank check
to do anything he wants with no con-
sequence?
Most, if not all, of the anger dis-
played in downtown Washington was
directed at ex-President Bush, with few
or no attacks on Obama, the command-
er in chief of the military who carries
out wars both in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If I had a dollar for every time
Obama has brought up "the previous
administration" in a speech, I'd prob-
ably have enough money to open a new
Reitz Union restaurant.
Agree with me or not, at the very
least, credit me for actually knowing
what I was talking about in regards to
the Answer protest. I understand it's
easy to be ignorant. After all, it sure is
easier to digest an oversimplified rant
about a four-day conservative political
gathering on MSNBC than actually at-
tend or even read about the event.

student.

For those of you left crying in
your exam-induced state of self-
hatred and last-minute study-
ing, here's what you might have
missed in the entertainment
realm.
First, and not that it's a big sur-
prise, our very own bon-bon
shaking Latin queen has finally
joined the ranks of "Gayken"
and Lance Bass.
Sorry ladies, but Ricky Martin
won't be singing "She Bangs"
anytime soon after he finally ad-
mitted he's gay.
And get ready for another shame-
fully addictive, take-the-book-
jacket-off-so-no-one-knows-
what-you're-actually-reading
Stephanie Meyer addition.
Just 25 days before the theat-
rical version of "Eclipse" is re-
leased on June 30, Meyer will
release the novella "The Short
Second Life of Bree Tanner,"
a spin-off from one of Meyer's
"Eclipse" characters.
And in less shame-inducing,
drunken news, all three main ac-
tors from "The Hangover" an-
nounced this week they'll be
back for a sequel.
No word as of yet if Mike Tyson
will join them.


Ratemyprofessors.com rates good teachers, good looks


By ALLISON BANKO
avenue writer

The end of the semester is just on the tip
of the horizon. It's so close you can almost
taste your celebration drinks. But, hold up!
There's some major housekeeping that needs
to be done, and that my friends, is registration.
Whether registering for summer or fall courses,
ISIS has been bombarded with many trying to
sort out their lives-at least for a semester. Al-
though tailoring your schedule to what you may
think is an acceptable time to get out of bed,
other factors obviously have to be taken into
account-like the professor. Boosting help with
your research for a Cinderella-fit of a schedule
is the ever so reliable Rate My Professors Web
site.
Providing students from more than 6,500
schools an excess of 10,000,000 student rat-
ings of more than a million professors, mtvU's
Ratemyprofessors.com has proven itself to be
the perfect staple of insider information. Profes-
sors are rated on clarity, helpfulness, easiness,
overall quality and hotness represented by a
fiery red chili pepper.


"Rate My Professors does what students
have done throughout time. But now they have
a larger scale of opportunity to tap into a bigger
pool of wisdom and opinions to formulate their
decisions on," said Carlo DiMarco, vice presi-
dent of University Relations for mtvU.
The site recently released its "top 25" lists
for 2009-2010 to give light to the highest ranked
universities, junior colleges and professors. Top-
ping the list of the "Top 25 Universities with the
Highest Rated Professors" was Southeastern
Louisiana University, John Jay College of Crimi-
nal Justice and Brigham Young University.
However, the Sunshine State did much bet-
ter in the rankings of the "Top 25 Junior Colleges
with Highest Rated Professors" with Florida Com-
munity College at Jacksonville and Tallahassee
Community College rounding out the top three.
Getting more of an eye-candy rating were
those professors that made it onto the "Top 25
Hottest Professors" list. Juann Watson, profes-
sor psychology at Kingsborough Community
College, proved to be the steamiest.
"Believe it or not, a lot of professors check
their ratings. When the professors found out
that they made one of the lists they were thrilled


and excited. It gives them a bit of a semi-celebri-
ty status," DiMarco said.
UF has three separate sections on the Rate
My Professors site including one for the Levin
College of Law as well as the College of Veteri-
nary Medicine. Gators have chimed in on more
than 3,300 of the UF's professors.
"Believe it or not, a lot of professors
check their ratings. When the
professors found out that they made
one of the lists they were thrilled and
excited. It gives them a bit of a semi-
ezelebrity status."
CARLO DIMARCO
vice president of University Relations for mtvU

UF assistant professor in the political sci-
ence department, Marcus Hendershot, has 32
ratings on ratemyprofessors.com and has yet to
check them.
"I don't look at it, but family members give
me a hard time about it every once in a while,"
Hendershot said. "The service is not a represen-


tative sample in any shape or form, but I guess
it allows students to blow off steam after grades
post. I would much rather have students post
rants on a Web site than have them engage in
harmful activity (for example, either to a faculty
member or to themselves)."
However, some professors aren't too thrilled
with their online ratings, and Rate My Professors
gave them a chance to sound off on some of
their harsh reviews. Professors Strike Back, an
online video series, showcases videos of pro-
fessors directly responding to comments made
about them on ratemyprofessors.com.
"We thought the one piece that may have
been missing was the professor's side. This was
a cool way to put a fun prospective on it," Di-
Marco said.
In the series, professors directly address
student feedback in "Professor Rebuttals." Pro-
fessor Andrew Tomasello, of Baruch College,
responds to a rating he received suggesting he
was "mean not cool" by dropping some friendly
F-bombs in response.
So, be sure to be careful with your ratings
when you rate your professor at ratemyprofes-
sors.com.

On-campus gym offers



classes for everyone

Standing on a squishy purple bubble
about 3 feet around, you raise one foot
in the air and twist your torso while
keeping your balance. By the instruc-
tor's command, you flip over the half-
shaped ball and start doing push-ups
with the bubble side on the floor and
the hard plastic side facing up. The
unique half-ball/half-platform wobbles
while you push up and down engaging
your core and pushing your abs to the
limit.
This challenging course is known as
BOSU Pilates and is one of the many
group fitness classes offered through
UF's Department of Recreational
Sports.
From BOSU Pilates and Ashtanga
Yoga to Speed Training and Total Body,
Rec Sports offers more than 30 dif-
ferent one-hour group fitness classes
about 100 times a week at the Student
Recreation and Fitness Center and the
Southwest Recreation Center. All of the
classes are free with a valid Gator 1 I.D.
card.
"A lot of times, people get stuck in
a workout rut where they're doing the
same thing all the time and hitting a fit-
ness plateau," said Meaghan O'Dwyer,
graduate assistant for group fitness
for UF's Department of Recreational
Sports. "Going to group fitness classes
really mixes up their schedules and al-
lows them to try different things."
With a variety of disciplines, students
will more than likely find an activity that
they enjoy doing, O'Dwyer said.

"I liked the fact that it was already
scheduled, and it was in a group set-
ting. I didn't necessarily go to work
on my glutes, but I heard that the abs
part of the class was tough. When I got
there, I was the only guy so I thought,
'This is awesome.'"UF economics junior
Russell Mercer said.
UF junior Brett Rogers, 21, started
taking speed and conditioning classes
over the summer. Rogers, who lettered
in track and field in high school, wanted
to get back into sprinting and found
out about the class through a friend al-
ready taking it. Rogers enjoyed the fact
that the classes focused on increasing
speed, he said.
Caley Baird, a senior education ma-
jor, takes BOSU Pilates and a stadiums
class that focuses on running up and
down stadium stairs at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium.
Baird prefers group fitness classes
compared with going to the gym by
herself because they add variety and
prevent boredom and monotony in her
workouts, she said.
"(BOSU Pilates) relaxes me and at
the same time it really makes me fo-
cus on the muscles I'm supposed to be
working," she said. "It gets you in touch
with your body whereas you can just fly
through cardio routines."
Whether a student is trying to get in
shape or is an athlete, the plethora of
classes provides students with classes
that will reflect his or her fitness level.

Will iPad be iHit or iFlop?


By NATALIE CERABINO
avenue contributing writer


Apple is hoping cell phones, laptops, digital
cameras, iPods, PDAs and Kindles just won't be
enough.
The computer hardware and software super-
giant is set to release its version of a personal
reader Saturday. Steve Jobs, CEO, said the iPad
will be much more than just a reader, filling the
void between a computer and a smart phone.
But does the void need filling?
"It's a giant iPhone, just without the phone
part," said Jared Mannen, a graduate student
in the UF College of Pharmacy. "Sure, it could be
useful in class, but compared to an actual laptop,
not at all."


The iPad will be a
half an inch thick and
weigh only 1.5 pounds,
which is thinner and
lighter than any other
reader or netbook on
the market. The dis-
play is 9.7 inches with
advanced In-Plane
Switching technology,
making it the highest
quality of a device in
this category, Jobs said
at the unveiling of the
device in January.


were that it lacked a camera and it cannot mul-
titask or run Flash, which is software commonly
used in online Web sites and advertising.
Judy Robinson, UF professor of Internet com-
munication classes, said these perceived short-
comings were just that: perceived.
"When Mac got rid of floppy disks people were
enraged," Robinson said.
She foresees the iPad having many applica-
tions on campus in and out of class for students.
Robinson maintains that the iPad is the next
step up in mobile learning and the beginning of a
technological evolution.
"Often Apple leads the way and impacts life in
ways we had not thought," Robinson said.
Andrew Ford, a UFjournalism student, doesn't
share Robinson's senti-


Courtsey of Apple Inc.
The iPad, Apple's newest product, hits stores Satur-
day, but speculation surrounds how necessary it is


"It is so much more
intimate than a laptop, and so much more capa-
ble than a smart phone," Jobs said in January.
But there is much speculation in the technolo-
gy world that it will be a flop. Among a sea of jokes
about the other meanings of the tablet's name,
there are many harsh online reviews outlining its
shortcomings.
Brennon Slattery, of PCWorld.com, called the
overall reaction to the device "underwhelming."
Slattery said the major issues with the iPad


ments.
"It appears to be
geared towards consum-
ers, not producers," Ford
said. He already gets The
New York Times on his
iPhone and doesn't see
how the iPad would be an
improvement.
Despite tepid initial re-
views, the campus book-
store hopes to be selling
the iPad as close to the
release date as Apple's
stock will allow, said David


Looney, the manager in
charge of Apple products at the UF Bookstore.
He doesn't know how many iPads would be in
the first shipment to the bookstore.
The iPad, in addition to the entire Apple prod-
uct line, excluding the iPhone, should be avail-
able with educational pricing, Looney said.
Other authorized Apple resellers in the area
are AT&T stores, Best Buy and RadioShack. How-
ever, only Apple stores will have iPads on Satur-
day.

Sex&Facebook



It's not official until...


By AMELIA HARNISH
and MICHAEL PERRONE
avenue writers

Michael 12:39 p.m.
In just six short years, Facebook has be-
come a staple in the life of nearly every col-
lege student. Aside from providing us with a
24/7 look into the lives of our close friends
and acquaintances, Facebook has carved out
a far more poignant niche as the modern-day
Cupid. It's hard to imagine what dating in col-
lege was like before Facebook. For our par-
ents, or even our older siblings, courtship was
a far different process.
Today, Facebookserves as an intermediary
tool that our predecessors were not fortunate
enough to have: a bridge between your first
meeting, first date and first hook up. Instead
of toiling away in agony thinking, "I wonder
what she's doing" or "Am I ever goingto hear
from her again?" we can send a simple friend
request and continue the pursuit.
But the use of Facebook as a dating me-
dium is not without rules. In general, a friend
request isn't weird if you've already had a
substantial conversation or meaningful inter-
action with the person. Request a girl you've
never met, and you'll be locked in the stalker
zone. Stage 5 clinger anyone?
The decision to chat is trickier. We have
all played that chess match of seeing who
will crack first and open up dialogue with the
other. Any conversation should come with the
ultimate goal of setting up a meeting or date.
The longer you talk online without sealing the
deal, the less likely it is that it will ever hap-
pen.
The content on your profile also influences
the other person's interest in you. Things like
a meager number of friends and lame photo
albums can leave voyeurs confused and dis-
interested.
Dating is all about playing the game and
being savvy enough to maneuver through
the little tests along the way. As social media
continues to evolve into an even bigger part
of our lives, Facebook flirting becomes a nec-
essary skill.


Amelia 12:47 p.m.
When a perusal of someone's profile is the
new first date, and it's not official until it's "Fa-
cebook official," Facebook can be both good
and evil.
I go through cycles with Facebook some-
times, well, most of the time, I'm perfectly
happy sharing every detail of my life and re-
lentlessly stalking the potential suitors in my
virtual circle. Other times, I'm overwhelmed
and obsessive.
I have to admit that I'm absolutely giddy
when I get a friend request from someone
adorable I met the night before, and I'm al-
ways flattered when I get a late-night chat
from a former flame. Like text messaging, Fa-
cebook is a modern must-have for connecting
and reconnecting with lovers.
It's also changed monogamy and what be-
ing "in a relationship" is like.
My battle really started when I got dumped
and found changing my relationship status
harder than actually hearing the words, "It's
over." Then began the ritual of checking his
profile every hour and updating my status
with subtle, biting shout-outs that only he
would understand.
In reality, everyone knew who those quips
were for because everyone was notified of our
breakup via Newsfeed and that stupid little
broken heart icon.
But it's more than who you're with that
you share when you're FBO: pictures, a wall-
to-wall and constant status updates provide
a window into the inner workings of your lives
as a couple. I can't tell if this is good or bad,
but it certainly represents a shift in our cul-
ture's perception of privacy.
When Mark Zuckerberg proclaimed the
death of privacy at the Crunchie Awards in
January, the blogosphere went nuts. But it's
hard to argue with him when you consider Fa-
cebook has more than 100 million users in
the U.S. alone, and nearly all of us are sharing
intimate details, includingwho we're with and
what we do together, without thinking twice
about it...at least, until the bubble bursts and
we're haunted by our ghosts of relationships
past.

Protocol for



pranking



every fool

By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer

Messy pranks:
1. The Sprayer
This one's a little old, but it usually turns
out well. Take the sprayer nozzle on your
kitchen sink and tie a rubber band around the
handle. When your victim turns on the sink to
wash the dishes or their hands, they'll get an
unexpected face full of sink water. This one's
just water, so it won't be too hard to clean up.
2. Hold This
This one takes a little skill, some balance
and a persuasive streak. Fill a bowl of Tupper-
ware container with water (or another liquid,
depending on how mean you are). Standing
on a chair or step ladder, putthe lip of the con-
tainer to the ceiling of your apartment. Grab a
broom and press the handle to the bottom of
the container, holding itto the ceiling. Careful-
ly climb down from the chair while holding the
container to the ceiling with the broom and
call one of your unsuspecting roommates. Tell
them to hold the container to the ceiling, just
like you're doing Now, walk away and take
the chair with you. Your friend or roommate
won't be able to get the container down with
out the chair. Inevitably, they will give up and
the container will fall on them, soaking them
with the water.
3. Fountain Soda
Take a needle and thread and string about
four Mentos together, leaving a few inches of
string at one end. Tie a knot at the other end
to secure the Mentos. Put them through the
top of a two-liter bottle of soda, holding the
untied end of the string. Screw the cap on the
bottle to hold the string of Mentos, suspend-
ing them above the liquid in the bottle. When
your roommate unscrews the bottle's cap,
the Mentos will drop into the soda, shooting a
fountain of soda through the kitchen.

Classics
1. Drive-thru
Go to your least favorite fast food joint's
drive-thru. Order a meal. Drive away.
2. Blow-out
Tape a balloon to the right rear tire of
your roommate's car. When they back out, it
should pop, providing a few minutes of enter-
tainment as he or she tries to figure out which
tire blew out.
3. Coinage
Apply super glue to one side of a quarter
or other coin, stick the coin to a busy sidewalk
and sit and watch while people try to pry it off
the ground.

Bathroom Humor
1. Bathroom Barrier
Place plastic wrap under your roommate's
toilet seat. You can figure out the rest.
2. Water works
Lift the lid off your roommate's toilet tank.
Find the pipe that refills the tank after flushing
and reroute it to point out of the tank, toward
the front of the toilet. Tape itto that side of the

Catch Bieber fever


Denim diaries: It's back!


By MICHELLE PROFITS
avenue writer

I have a confession to make.
It's not one that I'm ashamed of,
and it's not an April Fools' joke.
I love Justin Bieber.
I'll give everyone a moment
to get the eye rolls, groans and
scoffs out of your system. Good?
OK, now let me explain.
As a 22-year-old, job-search-
ing, graduate-impending, self-
proclaimed adult, I've been un-
der the impression for quite a
while that my years of obsessing
over teenage pop stars were long
gone.
But then I heard "One More
Time" on the radio. Then "Baby."
I saw the 3-year-old girl crying
over how much she loved him
on YouTube, and I felt her pain.
I began religiously following his
tweets. I was sick with Bieber
fever. I became obsessed with
his catchy beats and bubblegum


lyrics. I found myself willing to
overlook the fact that his music
videos play like footage from my
bat mitzvah.
If you're still rolling your
eyes, consider this: I'm not the
only one backing Bieber. Usher
signed him to a recording con-
tract, Ludacris raps on "Baby"
(his first Top 10 single) and his
new duet with Sean Kingston,
"Eeenie Meenie," is racing up
the charts. His newest album,
is sitting prettily in the No. 1
spot on iTunes' top albums. This
weekend from the Kids' Choice
Awards, Katy Perry tweeted a
photo of her kissing him on the
cheek. Clearly, I'm not alone in
my fervor.
I know there are others of
you out there, ashamed to ad-
mit your unparalleled adoration.
Turn that iPod volume higher, roll
your car windows down and let
the world know that you're ready
to be one less lonely girl.

The jorts we made fun of and the denim jackets that we
thought died with the '90s are back, and they're better than
ever. Dolce & Gabbana's entire spring ready-to-wear collec-
tion donned models in different hues of denim from head
to toe. Express is advertising its "denim leggings," and Gap
has brought back the denim button-up. So, dig up those old
shorts from Abercrombie & Fitch, and don't be scared to
rock your parents' old jean jackets.

Denim tips:
1. Pair denim items with browns, khaki, cream lace and
floral prints.
2. Don't remake the Justin and Britney fashion era, but
do try wearing denim on top and bottom with some buffers
in between. Go for a light pink top, simple pattern or light
brown belt to break up the colors.
3. Keep the deep, dark denim outfits for night and style
with light washes duringthe day.
4. Frayed denim shorts are always a no-no, but the right
tailored ones can work.
5. Because denim has been around for centuries, some
of the best pieces can be found at local thrift shops.

Moore misses second-straight practice

0 OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR STEVE
ADDAZIO ATTRIBUTED MOORE'S AB-
SENCE TO "PERSONAL BUSINESS."

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Staff Writer
bcallovi@alligator org

For the second-straight practice, wide receiv-
er Carl Moore was not on the field.
Unlike Monday when nobody seemed to
know why, Florida offensive coordinator Steve
Addazio had an answer Wednesday.
"He's just working on some personal busi-
ness right now," Addazio said.
Unfortunately, he did not know much more.
When asked if he would be back this spring,
Addazio repeated that sentiment.
Then, when asked if it was related to the. ---.
back injury that kept Moore off the field the en-
tire 2009 season, Addazio again answered that
it's just "personal business."
The redshirt senior was the leading candi-
date heading into the spring to win the starting
Y receiver job next season.
Moore came to UF as a five-star junior col-
lege recruit, according to Rivals.com, but has
failed to live up to the hype. In his first season at
Florida, he caught only 14 passes for 184 yards
and one touchdown.: ... -........

Offensive explosion makes softball watch-worthy


It's fair to say that college softball is
often thought of as college baseball's
little sister.
I can only imagine fans of the sport
10 years ago must have said, "When she
grows up, she's going to be hot."
Not that I would say or have ever heard
any of my friends say such a thing...
The point being: College softball is a
relatively young sport going through
changes that have made it more attractive
to the outside world.
Softball became an NCAA Champion-
ship sport in 1982, 35 years after base-
ball, and has largely been thought of as a
pitchers' game.
But since 2000, teams have increased


E their scoring from
3.56 runs per game
to 3.98, their ERA
from 2.53 to 3.16 and
their home runs per
game from .314 (a
Kyle Maistri record high at the
Kyle Points time) to .570.
kmaistri@alligatororg The spike in scor-
ing has made softball
more watchable for the average fan and
perhaps most importantly, softball has
been able to incorporate one of America's
true loves into the game home runs.
Florida has flaunted these "develop-
ments" as much as any other team in the
nation.


* Deadspin's A.J. Daulerio's attempt at an April Fool's joke fell short Wednesday
night. He posted what he claimed was a police report of his DUI arrest from the
previous night, but the plot was quickly foiled by astute readers. The incident
report was entertaining though, with Daulerio using "I do not speak Spanish so I
can only go up to the number 10" when asked to count backward from 100.


The Gators lead the country in home
runs per game (2.07) and rank third in
runs scored (7.67), thanks in large part
to senior Francesca Enea, whose 14 home
runs this season have raised her career
total to 55, putting her just five away
from the Southeastern Conference career
record, held by former Alabama slugger
Kelly Kretschman.
UF coach Tim Walton said that there
are a variety of factors that have led to
the change in the complexion on the
sport, among them stronger and better
conditioned athletes, an increased level
of training for hitters that was only pre-

UF needs


extras to


top UCF

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
On a team filled with expe-
rienced players, it was a pair of
freshmen who stepped up when
the Gators needed it most.
Brittany Schutte came through
with the game-tying single in the
seventh and the game-winning
home run in the ninth as the No.
6 Gators (24-4, 6-2 Southeastern
Conference) earned a 4-3 extra-
inning victory over UCF (22-13,
7-1 Conference USA).
Freshman pitcher Ensley
Gammel got the win, throwing
four scoreless innings in relief of
Stephanie Brombacher.
"She really pitched well,"
coach Tim Walton said. "She
saved the game for us and really
made big pitches in big spots."
Florida left 13
runners on base but
did just enough to
survive its trip to
Softball Orlando.
"It does get a
little frustrating
when we can't hit situationally,
but you can't let it affect the rest
of the game," Schutte said. "I feel
like we were able to get past that
when we needed to and in the
most important situations put the
ball in play."
Brombacher got the start and
threw first pitch strikes to 16 con-
secutive batters after getting be-
hind the game's first two, which
helped her mow through the first
four innings.
However, her shutout came to
an end shortly after that streak,
as a trio of singles gave UCF a 1-0
lead in the fifth.
Senior Corrie Brooks knotted
the score up at one in the sixth
when she hit her third home run
in her last eight at-bats. Brooks'
shot was the first extra-base hit
of the game after the Gators scat-
tered eight singles through the
first five innings.

Zaiser's attitude pays off in classroom and gym


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer

Senior Rebekah Zaiser describes
herself as a perfectionist both
on the gymnastics floor and in the
classroom and it shows.
It's a characteristic she said she
got from her mom, a physician
who homeschooled Zaiser and her
two brothers and pushed them to
do their best.
As a result, Zaiser strives for
perfection in everything she does.
On March 5, in UF's tri-meet
against North Carolina and Ball
State, Zaiser nailed her beam rou-
tine, earning a career-best 9.95. It
was a routine she said was a long
time coming, and it meant a lot to
her to finally perform to her poten-
tial.
In school, Zaiser has taken the
term student-athlete to heart, ac-
cumulating a 3.97 GPA in her four
years at Florida and is one of two
UF athletes nominated for the H.
Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete
Post-Graduate Scholarship, which
is presented to the Southeastern
Conference's top male and female
scholar-athletes.
"It would mean a lot to win
that scholarship," said Zaiser, who
will start medical school in the
fall. "I've worked very hard with
school, and athletics, too. I put a lot
of heart and soul into everything I
do at UF."
Just where she will attend medi-
cal school hasn't been determined.
She applied to about a dozen
different schools, was granted in-


terviews with eight or nine of them
and has been accepted to five, in-
cluding UF, Ohio State, Virginia,
Thomas Jefferson in Philadelphia
and Case Western Reserve in
Cleveland.
"I can't make a commitment
yet, but it's probably down to Vir-
ginia, Case or Ohio State," said
Zaiser, who would like to remain
in the Northeast to be close to her
family in Mars, Pa.
While those are options she's
satisfied with, Zaiser is still wait-
ing to hear back from two schools
that waitlisted her: Pennsylvania
and Pittsburgh, where she did re-
search with a medical resident last
summer on the incidence of un-
diagnosed HIV in the Pittsburgh
area.
During her
research stint,
Zaiser helped
Gymnastics out at an inner-
city hospital
and gave free HIV tests, interacted
with patients and helped answer
their questions.
Because of that experience,
Zaiser hopes to study either ortho-
pedics, where she can work with
athletes motivated to rehabilitate
from injury, or emergency medical
care, like her mom does, though
she is leaving her options open.
"I like the adrenaline rush of the
emergency room it's kind of like
athletics," Zaiser said. "You have
to be prepared for anything and
everyone in the room is looking up
to you and relying on you."
But Zaiser, who will find out

Patchan is recovering from a torn

Okine was getting his hands ready
to play tight end, Addazio doesn't
expect many designed pass plays if
Okine is on the field on offense.
"We won't be majoring in throw-
ing him the ball, what you want to
watch is him take the end and go
'Bam,'" Addazio said.


Gammel holds Knights scoreless in four relief innings

SOFTBALL, from page 18 ,._li_


But the Knights, fueled by a record-breaking crowd
of 1,091, started the bottom of the sixth with a single,
double, and two-RBI triple from freshman Marissa Me-
nendez, giving them a 3-1 advantage.
After Gammel came in to close out the sixth, the
Gators started the seventh with three consecutive hits of
their own, including an RBI double from senior Franc-
esca Enea that cut the deficit to one.
Junior Megan Bush followed with a pop out, and then
Schutte tied the game with a single to left.
"(I) didn't really feel any pressure," Schutte said. "I
was just taking it one pitch at a time. I just focused on
my pitch and hit it when I got the chance."
Both teams got a runner to third with less than two
out in the eighth but were unable to capitalize, leaving
the door open for Schutte to hit the game-winning home
run in the ninth.
"She got one in her wheelhouse and really drove it,"
coach Tim Walton said. "I don't think she's a freshman
anymore. She gets a lot of playing time, and she's really
done a good job with it."
UCF refused to go quietly, as junior Abby McClain
drew a walk to lead off the bottom of the ninth and then
moved to third two batters later on an error by replace-
ment first baseman Samantha Holle.
But Gammel was able to control the damage, striking
out the final two batters to end the threat and the game.
"The last couple at-bats I was just going right at the
batters and trying not to get overwhelmed and worked
up," Gammel said. "I just wanted to go pitch by pitch,
and then when the third out was made I was just think-
ing, 'Thank goodness we won.' We just like to make it
exciting I guess."

viously available to pitchers and a move to taller
more athletic players.
"The kid was born to hit," Walton said of Enea,
who stands at 5-foot-8. "She's just an amazing,
amazing hitter."
Obviously, she's not the only one launching balls
out of Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium, as five other
players have logged more than five bombs so far
this season.
One of those players is junior Kelsey Bruder,
who hit 16 round-trippers a year ago and is cur-
rently tied for third on the team with seven.
"There aren't very many pitchers who are ab-
solutely lights-out dominating as there were pre-
viously," she said. "ERAs are up across the board
everywhere."
Enea echoed that sentiment:
"The first couple years (of my career), it just al-
ways used to be pitcher dominated and you'd be
lucky just to get a 2-for-3 day off a good pitcher," she
said. "Now, there really isn't one dominant pitcher
except for (Washington's) Danielle Lawrie."
Lawrie is the reigning Women's College World
Series Most Outstanding Player, as she led the Hus-
kies to a finals win over the Gators last season.
But even she got tagged for a combined 10
earned runs in two semifinal games against Georgia
in Oklahoma.
In fact, teams averaged four runs per game at the
2009 WCWS, right in line with the season's aver-
ages even though most of the best pitchers in the
country were there.
While pitchers across the nation, including UF's
ace Stephanie Brombacher (2.21 ERA), may not be
so happy about the newfound prominence of the
long ball and offense in general, those three- and
four-run leads aren't so safe anymore, making the
games a little more compelling to watch.
Softball now has all the excitement of baseball
neatly packaged into a seven-inning game that
takes half as long and moves twice as quick.
Older brother might have to find a way to dress
her in turtle necks and sweatpants because the hot
younger sister might start stealing some attention
away during those long summer months.
