Last August, an anonymous caller to the universitys ethics hotline alleged that Business Administration manipulated data on job placement of program graduates in order to boost the programs ranking. The call was followed by the submission of documents supporting the allegations. An investigation headed by Associate Provost for Academic Affairs Angel Kwolek-Folland followed. According to the investigation report, compear to have used a looser interpretation of the data than would a reasonable person UF STUDENT GOVERNMENTBy ALEXANDER KLAUSNERAlligator Staff Writer Election reform has turned a Student Government platform point into a reality. The Senate unanimously voted Tuesday night to approve a bill that will do away with paper ballots and move to a computerbased voting system. Students would still have to go to an on-campus polling location, but instead of receiving a paper ballot, they would swipe their Gator 1 cards and be ushered to a secure booth with a computer to cast votes. The system is expected to be ready by the fall SG election. The legislation, written by Senate President Micah Lewis, was widely supported and endorsed. Minority leader Gillian Leytham was the one to motion for unanimous approval. The system has been tried once before in 2005, Lewis said. However, poorly trained poll workers caused problems with the election, prompting a return to paper and pens. This time, he said, SG intends to ensure the poll workers know the system, and the technology has improved drastically since. Treasurer T.J. Villamil said SG expects to save $25,000 by implementing the new system. He will propose today to decrease the election budget from $50,000 to $25,000, Unite Party Senator Severin Walstad, nancial aspects of the bill, said he estimates the savings to be $32,000 as opposed to $25,000. ware upgrades would cost between $16,000 and $22,000. The bill comes after a Spring 2011 election that was marred by controversy. Three students, including two ex-senators, came forward claiming to have voted twice. Instead of voting for a candidate, they wrote in the name of a historical Lewis said he wouldnt condone the action, but he said it did alert him to weaknesses in the system. Students will now be able to cast votes at any polling location on campus. Under previous rules, any kind of electronic voting was illegal. The new rules will still disallow online voting, a system used for SG elections at Santa Fe College. Lewis said an interview last week he didnt push for online voting because he was aiming to ensure the integrity of the voting process. He said he didnt want a system candidates could exploit by rewarding favorable votes or through pressuring peers into voting their way. electronic stationsSEE INTERNAL, P AGE 4Lewis UF Academic s

By EMILY MORROWAlligator Writer More than 700 springs are sprinkled across Floridas landscape, providing an visitors and about 90 percent of north Floridas water supply. But like many things across the state, they too face the budget ax. On June 1, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection announced the end of all funding for the Florida Springs Initiative and the Springs Basin Working Groups, or ganizations dedicated to restoring and protecting Floridas springs. Its just a real hard blow, said Bob Knight, coordinator of the Wakulla Springs working group. Were seeing the springs degrading, and then we hear the state no longer values them enough to fund their restoration. The Florida Springs Initiative was started in 2001 by the DEP. Its purpose was to identify problems the springs were having lic about these issues and work on projects to protect and restore the springs. Last year the Initiative received $514,000 in state funding. The DEP also directed $276,000 toward four Springs Basin Working Groups. The groups were charged with creating restoration plans for the four springs Ichetucknee, Silver, Rainbow and Wakulla. Peter Colverson, coordinator of the working groups for Rainbow Springs and Silver Springs, said his plans included six categories of necessary improvements: water qualuse and development, biodiversity, and education and outreach. The groups were two weeks away from presenting these plans to the DEP when the funding cut was announced. The funds were not intended to cover implementation of the plans, only to maintain the working groups as representative agencies. Colverson said these groups were the motivating forces that would have worked to garner public support and guide the springs restorations. Its sort of like taking the engine out of a car, he said. This foreseeable stall in progress was what led Knight to found the Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute, a private, the slack from other agencies losses of state funding. We spent a lot of money understanding the problems in the springs, but we havent hasnt gone away, just the states support. Christie Goss, a spokeswoman for the DEP, wrote in an email that the DEP is looking for ways to continue the work of the springs groups. DEPs commitment to restoring these springs has not diminished, but it does mean we will have to explore other avenues to ful4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2011Max Reed / Alligator StaffAbout 20 Florida red-bellied turtles line a fallen log on the Ichetucknee River.

AROUND GAINESVILLELocal springs cant avoid stroke of the budget pen By LISA GALLOAlligator Contributing Writer The UF School of Theatre and Dance is leaving the local scene and going international. Two amphitheaters in Greece offered to host the theater programs productions of Sophocles Oedipus the King and Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet. Judith Williams, the founder of the International Production Program and director of Romeo and Juliet, said the plays were chosen because the directors have a lot of passion for the pieces. Each play has two separate casts that rehearse simultaneously, said Russell Schultz, the assistant director for Oedipus the King. One cast will perform in Gainesville and the other will perform in Greece. The group is set to leave for Greece Saturday and stay for about two weeks. The UF theater students have performed in about 10 different countries including England, Scotland and Russia. Last year, the students performed A Streetcar Named Desire in Germany and the Czech Republic. To Wayne Willinger, who will play Oedipus, the experience of performing Sophocles masterpiece in its home country will be the best part. When Oedipus says I was at the great park of Delphi, I will be really pointing to Delphi, Willinger said. When Oedipus yells that he is going to blind his eyes, my voice will echo through those hills just like it did thousands of years ago. UF thespians to perform in Greece in coming weeks PROGRAM AIRS SATURDAYS AT 9 P.M.By MARIA CASTILLOAlligator Contributing Writer Shane Reynolds might hail from the Swamp, but that didnt exactly get him ready to face some reallife reptiles in the Everglades. snakes and alligators. But thats not stopping him from staring them down on national television. He is the star of Shane Untamed, an adventure show airing Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Nat Geo Wild. His audience members will know him as Shane O, a nickname his mother gave him growing up. Reynolds will be a one-man band, in charge of every element that makes his show, from shooting to editing. While studying at UF, he traveled and always had dreams of one day having his own TV show. I think its something that everyone hopes to do at some point, just to travel, he said. The fact that I get to document it for the world to see is a dream come true. The travel show will stand out from others since it is not guided by a wildlife expert, Reynolds said. He is an everyday person in situations that would normally call for an expert. Nat Geo Wild is trying to attract a younger audience, an age demographic from 18 to 25, with this show, said Janet Han Vissering, senior vice president of development for the network. She said that Reynolds has a contemporary appeal and will help attract that age group. He puts across a very vulner able side, but it could be incredibly funny too, she said. In some of the clips from his show found on National Geographics website, Reynolds can be found kayaking in Alaska looking for whales and hiking through a jungle in Guyana in search of 1,500-pound bears. He wants to prove that fear shouldnt stop anyone from adventure. Im hoping that people will learn that traveling to the unknown and remote places are not as dangerous as they think, he said.UF alum featured on travel showComplaint came from anonymous callerusing standards used by professionUFs MBA program ranked 39th in the U.S. News and World Report ranking based on 2009 data. Data on publications methodology. Data the college reported about the 2010 graduating class led the school to slide to 47th place. denied claims that they intentionally manipulated the data. The allegations state that Craig Petrus, director of graduate business career services, was pressured by Selcuk Erenguc, the associate dean for graduate programs, to manipulate the data in order to maintain a higher ranking. The complaint alleged that Petrus spoke of the pressure to colleagues during a July 2009 staff luncheon at a local restaurant. Two staffers supported the claim. According to the investigation, Petrus could not recall the luncheon, and both he and Erenguc denied any pressure. Erenguc attributed the change from 2009 to 2010 to a slumping economy. According to the ranking of the 2009 class in U.S. News and World Report, the MBA programs 2009 graduating class had 53 percent job placement at graduation and about 79 percent placement three months after graduation. The complaint alleged that the accurate numbers paint a different picture, with 37 percent of the students having jobs at graduation and 53 percent having jobs three months after graduation. The investigation found no evidence of collusion to create a more positive set of data. Whether this was the result of poor judgment or inexperience, the end result is an inaccurate portrait of graduates of the MBA program, according to the investigation. In an October memorandum sent in response to the investigation, College of Business Administration Dean John Kraft said the 2009 set of data accurately portrayed graduate placement and the college adhered to appropriate reporting standards. He said there was unrest in the was selected for his position last summer, and he attributed the allegations to this negativity.

THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 By CLARE LENNONAlligator Writer What could be considered as nothing more than a rudimentary Saturday chore served as a pinnacle of glory for a group of UF engineering students last week as their place in the basic division at the ION Robotic Lawn Mower Competition. The robot, which cuts grass without any human direction, mowed 76 percent of the grass in a roughly 20-square-foot rectangle without hitting a trashcan that was randomly placed in the grass. The secondplace team only cut 51 percent of the grass. Eric Schwartz, a UF engineering professor and project adviser, said the teams experience made the difference this year as the team members were able to anticipate what might go wrong and try to prevent them. before, Schwartz said. The team, however, did encounter some up a few days before the competition. Instead of folding up shop, the team found a wheelchair at Goodwill, bought it and replaced the motor. This years team included senior computer engineering major Camilo Buscaron, senior computer engineering major Colin Watson, senior electrical engineering major Mike Franks and mechanical engineering graduate student Andres Vargas. Schwartz said the team built everything on InstiGator except for the lawn mower engine, batteries and the motor and wheels taken from a wheelchair. The robot has sonar, a compass and a lever to adjust the height according to the grass. Next year, the team plans to move up to the advanced division. Instead of mowing around a static trashcan, advanced-team robots have to mow moving mechanical dog.UF robotic lawn mower takes top prize at competitionMachine has sonar, compass and wheelchair wheels UF Academic s

THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 In 1946, George Orwell said that political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. Although he declared this decades ago, Or well might still be on to something. To be sure, I will examine his thesis to see if it holds true today, using evidence straight from the mouths of todays most prominent politicians. Exhibit A President Barack Obama on Osama bin Laden: The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaida. I wonder how Orwell himself would have perceived President Obamas late-night address and the crowds celebrating outside the White House that were gravely similar to the deranged foreigners cheering the 9/11 attacks. Regardless, my own reasoning along with words have led me to hold the killing of bin Laden in the highest regard. Right or wrong, this sole constituent deems this murder respectable. Exhibit B Mitt Romney on the economy: Government under President Obama has grown to consume almost 40 percent of our economy. We are only inches away from ceasing to be a free market economy. Romneys statement is doubly impressive, combining attempts to elicit fear in his supporters through the portrayal of a socialist Obama regime and to overwhelm them with deceptive statistics. Government spending as a percentage of ting just below 38 percent according to Politiing to PolitiFact, government spending as a percentage of GDP has always been within 7.6 percent of the current level. In addition, the recession has played a pivrecent years. Romneys caveat of our looming descent into a communist mar ket is a bit off base. In reality, the U.S. ranked ninth on the economic freedom index of 179 countries according to the Heritage Foundation. His dishonest fear-mongering leads me to classify his quote as pure wind. Exhibit C Sarah Palin on Paul Revere: He who warned the British that they werent gonna be takin away our arms by ringing those bells, and makin sure as hes riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed. Palins yarn is intrinsically more challenging to assess due to its incoherence. It seems the former governor was describing Reveres legendary 1775 ride as a warning to the British against taking American arms, using those shots and bells as cautionary tools. Although I appreciate Gov. Palins storytelling ability and believe her when she says, I know my American history, her story paints an inaccurate representation of Reveres ride. Due to this lack of sense and distortion of history, I will again accept Orwells thesis and classify Palins quote as a pure wind lie. Conclusion After careful examination of the evidence and thoughtful deliberation, one can reach the sobering conclusion that contemporary politicians are much like their predecessors: imperfect, mendacious and human. ed that he was really too honest a man to be a Abdul Zalikha is an microbiology junior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. ColumnThat smell like a concoction of incense, fruits and cigars wafted to my nose as I entered Hideaway Head Shop, a Dinkytown hookah store. About a dozen eager collegeaged customers hungrily stared with anticipation as a salesman reached behind the counter to reveal an assortment of brightly colored hookah pipes. Hookah a tobacco-smoking device which originated in India 400 years ago is a hip new trend among college students, popular because of the perception that its a safer, less addictive alternative to smoking cigarettes. But emerging research is beginning to disprove this. Recent studies by the American Lung Association, the World Health Organization and international researchers show that hookah may pose the same even some unique health risks as cigarette smoking. In a typical one-hour session of hookah smoking, the user is exposed to at least 100 times the volume of smoke inhaled from one cigarette, according to a 2007 WHO advisory note. One session produces as much tar as 20 low-tar cigarettes. The smoke is also dangerous because it contains high levels of toxic compounds like carbon monoxide, heavy metals and carcinogens. Despite the risks, hookah is an increasingly mainstream leisure activity. Since 2000, an estimated 300 hookah bars have opened in the U.S., and the phenomenon is catching on. A clinical study of hookah smokers found high nicotine levels in smokers blood and saliva, debunking the myth that hookah cannot be addictive.For example, a 2006 study examining the emerging trend in tobacco use among teens found that out of 411 college freshmen, those teens who had ever smoked hookah were about eight times more likely to experiment with cigarettes. This is dangerous because tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of premature death in the U.S. and is responsible for 435,000 deaths annually. Its true that research about hookahs risks is still emerging, but thats all the more reason to remain cautious. Lolla Mohammed Nur is a student at the University of Min nesota.

The record lasts forever. Above anything else a band does in its career, the albums it releases are legacy. With the release of their third full-length, Suburbia Ive Given You All And Now Im Nothing, its obvious The Wonder Years know the re cord lasts forever. And they made it count. Comprised of vocalist Daniel Soupy Campbell, bassist Joshua Martin, guitarists Matthew Brasch and Casey Cavaliere, drummer Michael Kennedy and guitarist/key boardist Nicholas Steinborn, the bands follow-up to the adored The Upsides is a joint release on Hope less and No Sleep Records due out on June 14. Suburbia Ive Given You All And Now Im Nothing is as timeless as records come. Its 13 tracks are undoubtedly the Philadelphia-based groups best musicianship, matched pound-for-pound by a great lyrical output from Campbell. America (1956), the concept of Suburbia is outlined by the inter lude-interlude-closer trio of songs that make up the albums title. Suburbia, Ive Given You All and And Now Im Nothing provide the frame work for the record, with the other 10 songs falling into place chrono logically according to when Campbell wrote them throughout 2010. Opener Came Out Swinging starts the record off with an electric 30-second introduction that builds upon itself, similar to You Know How I Do from Taking Back Sundays Tell All Your Friends. First a steady guitar riff overrides some feedback, then a 50-year-old clip of Ginsberg reading My mind is made up, theres going to be trouble, from America comes in before Kennedy It all stops for a split-second be fore the whole band gets into gear and Campbell belts out, Moved all my shit into my parents basement / And out of our old apartment / I know things changed but Im not sure when / I guess youd call this a regression / I left a real job and a girlfriend / I convinced myself that Im brave enough for all of this / I spent this whole year in airports and Before the listeners get two more blistering tracks with Woke Up Older and Local Man Ruins Everything. The former is the more impressive number, with the catchiest chorus on the record. References to The Upsides start to pop up as well, and although Sublistener, long-time fans will be more pleased with the album. Suburbia and Ive Given You All serve as the setting for the connect to And Now Im Nothing in several ways. These three tracks are the only ones on the album writsome lyrics from the songs that pre cede it. My Life As A Pigeon and Summers in PA are two essential cuts from the record, with the latter be ing most noteworthy for its bridge, featuring guest vocals from Dan OConnor and Alan Day of Four Year Strong. The intensity seems to be taken down a notch with the anti-blind religion, half-tempo jammer I Wont Say The Lords Prayer, but the scathing lyrical content might actually make the track the most intense one on the album. Coffee Eyes and Dont Let Me Cave In sandwich the second interlude, two equally impressive numbers that show off The Wonder Years versatility a bit. Martins bass and Kennedys drums are highlighted in the build-up of Coffee Eyes, while the guitars take more of the focus in Dont Let Me Cave In. The most important characteristic of the new sound on Suburbia is the nearly perfect production. Campbells vocals have almost no editing on them, making for a rawer sound comparable to his voice at live shows. That raw sound comple ments musicianship that is simultaneously more blunt and intricate than we have grown accustomed to with the band. Recording with Steve Evetts was the most important part of the mak ing of this album, as Evetts made all the right calls behind the boards. Its the production of Suburbia that gives it the boost up in lasting value so many albums in the genre lack these days. Closer And Now Im Nothing is the best song The Wonder Years have written. From several instantly accessible lines to the epic minuteand-48-second outro, this song is everything The Wonder Years know how to do, executed as best as they possibly can. Its almost paralleled by the emotional Hoodie Weather, which features brilliant one-liners like, Growing up means watching my heroes turn human in front of me. When a teenager picks up a 10-year-old copy of Suburbia Ive Given You All And Now Im Nothing in a decade (or more likely just wishes for it before technology swoops it into his iPod UberNano), it might be that record for him. That record, the one that makes you fall in love with an entire genre. The one that makes a kid pick up a guitar or a microphone. No one knows what the pop punk scene will be like in a decade, but I Suburbia Ive Given You All And Now Im Nothing, The Wonder Years best record to date, will still matter then.

In front of the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium pitching circle, Arizona State players jubilantly mobbed celebration of a national champion ship. A handful of paces away, Kelsey Bruder walked away from a game, strikeout. First, she walked into the arms of UF coach Tim Walton. Then she was swarmed by a contingent of Gators players gazing through teary eyes, watered with disbelief at wit team. this was the end. Obviously, losing again here is heartbreaking, Bruder said. But achieved over the last four years and this team, in particular. Before the seniors arrived, the Gators had never made a Womens College World Series appearance. Theyve been to Oklahoma City four straight times but have yet to win the Southeastern Conferences title. in two appearances Walton said he hopes this group isnt remembered simply as a team that didnt win a national champi onship.

THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Departing Brombacher said current group will win a championshipFlorida. The All-Americans and Tiffany DeFelice built a winning tradition and national respect. Arguably one of the best [senior classes] in NCAA history if you go down and look at all the awards theyve won, UFs head coach said. The only thing they didnt win was the big one, so of course thats what everybody talks about. But positives are momentarily hard to recognize when another team is hoisting the bigger trophy. The most visually devastated was Paculba, who started all 271 games in her UF career. Bush and Brombacher embraced her face. The mothers of Bush and Paculba looked on in the stands with their arms around one another. No one wants to end their career on a loss, Brombacher said. Its tough to swallow, but Im so proud of my teammates. to freshman counterpart Hannah Rogers, who became a breakout star in 2011 and a second-team All-American due in large part to Brombachers midseason bicep injury. Rogers is part of an underclassmen core that will try to take Gators softball to the only level it has yet to reach. In addition to Rogers, Florida returns Michelle Moultrie, Cheyenne Coyle, Brittany Schutte and Kasey Fagan, while also touting the nations No. 1 recruiting class. This program is going to do big things, said Brombacher, who will stay in Gainesville next year and work with the team. and the next time, were going to get it. But Tuesday night was mainly about recial team spokesman all season, put her last night in a Gators uniform into perspective. Theyve probably been the best four dont think Ive seen a team work harder, game than us. I just feel lucky to be a part of this team. It was a great experience. WCWS All-Tournament Team: Bruder, Coyle, Schutte and Moultrie were all named to the 2011 All-Tournament Team. Moultrie was also named co-WCWS Most Outstanding Player, along with Escobedo.

Thompson, along with Daniel Pigott and Vickash Ramjit, is wreaking havoc at the bottom of the lineup. It just gives us more depth, catcher Mike Zunino said. The bottom of the order has been doing great since the SEC Tournament, and theyve picked up some slack for some guys that hadnt been swinging too good at the top of the order. Although Thompson didnt start his a month between starts, the streaky an impact. Im doing what I can, Thompson said. My dad [former major leaguer Robby Thompson] said, Your swing looks good, but try and stay healthy. Florida hosts Mississippi State on Friday at noon in Game 1 of the Gainesville Super Regional. Johnson and Maddox update: Zunino said Johnson participated in the team workout on Monday and looked good. The sophomore left-hander is listed as one of two possible starting options for Sundays if necessary Game 3 against the Bulldogs. nitely helps, Zunino said. It made everyone else relax. Maddox, who strained his foot attempting to catch a foul popup in Fridays blowout over Manhattan, is still listed as day-to-day. Zunino was non-committal when asked if Maddox practiced Monday. BASEBALL, from page 18 again Mississippi State was upsetting Georgia Tech. Coach Kevin OSullivan couldnt have scripted a better Regional games and Sully has to decide whether to pitch Brian Johnson or Alex Panteliodis. My take: Panda, by a dozen bamboo sticks. While Johnson has been a horse all season, Panteliodis is actually hitting his stride. The lefty has allowed just a single run in 12 postseason innings. Before toeing the company line and saying hell do whatever is best for the team, the junior admitted Wednesday hes much more suited to start and pitch on a set routine. Thing is, Sully recognizes this too. If Panda doesnt start, then the Gators effectively eliminate one of their hottest arms from the equation, barring injury or marathon contest. OSullivan knows his players much better than me, but Id keep Johnson in the pen this weekend. Theres a battle going on right now, and Im not talk100,000 Weiner jokes. Media mouthpieces from all sides are lining up to either demonize or defend LeBron James. Its sad really. A former alligatorSports alum (Gregg Doyel) asks one question too many and boom! A riot across the blogosphere nearly breaks out. I did love the Kings response in Game 4 though, you know, publicly ceding his throne with a single fourth quarter shot. Im all for team basketball, but neither Magic Johnson nor Bill Russell ever turned into Christian Bale from The Prestige. Dude better cut the disappearing act tonight or else his shrinkage will elicit more water-cooler jeering than Costanzas. Kelsey Bruder just inserted another conjunction after sort-of, but not really, complementing Arizona State, followed immediately by a thrashing of the umpires. I watched Game 1 and understand the seniors postgame frustration. Home plate ump Chris Drumm shrunk on the games biggest stage similarly to, well, LeBron on Tuesday night. But a word that can often times be used as a tricky juxtaposition Arizona State knocked the snot out of Florida. The Gators were nothing more than a doormat the Sun Devils wiped their feet on toward a second national title in four seasons. After losing 14-4 FOURTEEN to FOUR Monday, Bruder had the audacity to question the umpiring multiple times while imploring the media to not twist her words. This is like being misquoted in an autobiography. Sometimes, I just dont get it. JESSE, from page 18 My dad said, Your swing looks good, but try and stay healthy.Tyler Thompson
