CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Faculty at UF earned about $619 million in research awards for 2011, an 8.7-percent decrease from 2010. The drop in funding comes partly from a decrease in stimulus funds. In 2010, UF received $77 million through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to an Aug. 25 press release. This year, the school received about $51 million. However, two departments at UF received more funding in 2011 than they did in 2010. The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences set records with almost $127 million in funding, a 25-percent increase from last year. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences received 9 percent more than it did in 2010, bringing awards to $45.9 million. It is especially gratifying to see our faculty winning more research awards when competition is getting more and more intense, CLAS Dean Paul DAnieri said in the press release.

Todays question: Are you excited about Joel McHale performing at Gator Growl? 58 TOTAL VOTES18% YES 82% NOWhine-One-OneBratty adults dont belong in courtroomAn attempted lawsuit out of Illinois involving two adults and their mother is taking the phrase spoiled little rich kid to a whole new level. Steven Miner, 23, and Kathryn Miner, 20, with the help of their father, attorney Steven A. Miner, brought a suit in 2009, seeking more than $50,000 from their mother, Kimberly Garrity, for emotional distress. The case reached an Illinois appeals court last week, where ers conduct in question to be extreme or outrageous. Not so, say the poor, distressed victims of this alleged child abuse. Well, poor does not qualify as a proper adjective, considering they grew up in a $1.5-million home. But, surely, they must have been quite distressed by their mothers actions. What sort of mother tells her son to buckle his seatbelt when he is 7 years old? Or calls her daughter to tell her to come home after staying out past midnight celebrating homecoming? The horror! The most bizarre complaint from the male plaintiff concerns an inappropriate birthday card he received from his horrible mother. It was inappropriate for two reasons. First, the card featured a grotesque picture of tomatoes with a special one that had been mutilated with craft-store googly eyes. The inside of the card explained how the son was different from all the rest. How dare his mother call him special? Second, the card failed to have any money in it. Again, poor, poor children. The appeals court rightly found that ruling in favor of the child-rearing to excessive judicial scrutiny and interference. In other words, every little Billy and Sarah could potentially bring suit against one of their parents if they failed to buy them that candy bar for which they pined. This could be made even worse for children of divorced par ents, especially if those parents hold a grudge against one another. The children could become tools of revenge. What this case really shows is a lack of respect by the children, who are supposedly educated adults, and the father for the improper use of our judicial system. The courts should be reserved for people who have been seriously harmed, whether it be by a criminal or civil act. These petty lawsuits are ruining the credibility of our judicial system while clogging up the courts for people who actually need them. A lawsuit like this is a costly endeavor, especially for the defendant. Imagine if the plaintiffs who brought zany suits like these had to pay the defendants for all costs incurred if they lose the suit. These children are spoiled little brats who used their fathers counsel and ill-feelings toward their mother to make a mockery of our judicial system.Currently, our country is in the middle of an intense debate on the nature of entitlement programs for present and future generations. This summer, I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa to see how their social programs and regulations function. It is no surprise that when Nelson Mandela came into power in 1994, throngs of people who had been cruelly suppressed for so long desired a more equitable distribution of the countrys wealth. A product of this feeling was the new South African constitution, which South Africans told me was the most progressive in the world. It includes the rights to free housing for the poor, health care for all, rights to employment and even the right of gay marriage. On the surface, it appears to be one of the noblest documents ever produced, that is, before you see what it has helped create. In the slums of Alexandria, the clearest problem was unemployment. The government promised everyone a job, and then instituted a minimum wage for various occupations. The wage is pitifully low by U.S. standards, but there is such an abundance of low-skilled labor from apartheid that any minimum wage seemed to create huge unemployment. In fact, the South African textile industry was suffering severely from Chinese competition. Without the power to lower wages, many companies were forced to close. In the absence of jobs, some young men inevitably join gangs like the Young Americans, JFKs and Ugly Americans, contributing to one of the worlds highest violent-crime rates. certain racial categorization. Private companies in South Africa had to meet ownership requirements in which someone of nonwhite descent had to own a large percentage of the company. One man told me the government was obligated companies with no engineering knowledge and would require millions of dollars more than the price offered by white-owned price they originally bid. litically connected men are driving around in luxury vehicles and have become millionaires. In fact, there are now more black millionaires than white millionaires in South Africa. The intent of the policy was to create broad-based prosperity in the nonwhite community, but it seems that all it has left is an upper-class intent on retaining their wealth generated by a corrupt system. Every indication is that these policies have caused masses to opportunities elsewhere. They are now being limited in the economy of South Africa just as they once limited black Africans. Growth in South Africa is being severely restricted by these redistributive practices, and the tiny tax base is continually diminishing.   Now politicians are talking about nationalizing the mining industry, further undermining investor and corporate losses and capital withdrawals. The policy actions taken by the government, given the painful legacy of apartheid, are emotionally understandable; however, they continue to keep South Africas most disadvantaged groups mired in their condition. The mindset instilled in the poor is that the country will take care of them and that they should have low expectations for their own abilities to rise out of poverty. In South Africa, the government promised the moon and has been unable to even  deliver a moon rock.

MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Currently, we are more than halfway through Ramadan. As a Muslim, I never want such a time to end, for there is no greater opportunity when one can grow closer to Allah and gain good deeds. This is done through more frequent praying, Quran reciting, spending spiritual moments with loved ones, donating, especially by Muslims at the mosque, to the needy through zakah as a moral and spiritual investment (as well as a major pillar of Islam), and by, of course, participating in the essence of Ramadan: fasting. Noor Najjar, a student, blogger and a very dear friend of of the core concepts of fasting: The best way to understand a person is to step in their shoes. What better way to understand what the hungry or deprived endure except than to step in their shoes for 30 days? Noors post re-instilled this highly relevant and ever true notion. In turn, I would like to expand on it in light of recent global most to exercise self-restraint and demonstrate discipline so that Muslims may become more righteous, theres also a secRamadan provides an opportunity to sympathize with those struggling elsewhere in the world. This could not be more appropriate to the current crises going on worldwide. For instance, East Africa is currently enduring a humanitarian crisis as a result of the worst drought in 60 years. Two failed rain seasons led to crop shortages on top of the Horn of Africas already vulnerable state. It is expected to affect more than 10 million people in countries including Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Djibouti. According to reports by UNICEF, southern Somalia is suffering from lack of proper health care and clean water, and bility is worsening to a critical condition, and hundreds of refuThe images online and on television depicting the famine are beyond distressing. Matters are expected to worsen with no rain forecast in sight. main agencies to afford emergency aid, so your help is crucial. You can help UNICEF meet these needs by texting FOOD to 864233 to donate $10 or visit its website at www.unicefusa.org to donate online. You can also make a donation through numerous other agencies including Islamic Relief Worldwide by simply visiting their website at www.islamic-relief.com, which provides more information on their East Africa appeal. Another life-threatening crisis overseas is Bashar al-Assads government crackdown on the Syrian peoples protests for reform and civil rights. Al-Assads continued use of imprisonment, torture and outright killing of any who oppose him in Syria has in turn made him one of the worst human rights offenders in the Middle East. The tragic stories we hear from Syria hit home with many members of Syrian descent in Toledo who still have family there. This Ramadan, I am not alone in remembering other struggling populations of the world. Every night at my local mosque, I join the prayer of my fellow Muslims in the Toledo community to make a special call (duaa) on behalf of people in Somalia, Syria and elsewhere. Especially because we have basic necessities and securities we should never overlook, the tumult in Africa and in the Middle East often frames our own concerns as quite trivial. powerful reminders of such fundamental concepts. After such not had water since 5 oclock in the morning. I can look forward to breaking my fast and sleeping comfortably at night once the sun sets, but I cannot speak on behalf of the millions of others globally who can not necessarily do so. re-evaluating this world is most humanizing. Ramadan Mubarak to all. Butheina Hamdah writes for The Independent Collegian at the University of Toledo.UWireWho would persuade you better: a per son calmly explaining his evidence or someone calling you an idiot for disagreeing with him? Given how important persuasion is in democracies, you might think this would be well understood by now. Sadly, such common-sense rhetorical knowledge has been disregarded by liberals and Democrats in their approach toward tea party protesters. Outreach and dialogue has taken a permanent backseat to mockery and dismissal. Tea partiers are called gun nuts, lunatics, racists and even terrorists. A terrible myopia has led to a desperate, alienated audience being branded as irredeemably insane, stupid or evil. This strategy was tested in the 2010 midterm elections and it resulted in huge Democratic losses. Media depictions create an image of a tea party that is palpably ignorant and clinging madly to its beliefs. The person holding the Keep the government out of Medicare sign is, of course, clearly out of step with reality. But does that make him evil? No. Perhaps if he were kindly presented with evidence that his Medicare coverage is being threatened by austerity hawks that is, tea party Republicans who are keen on slashing budgets, he would vote differently come election time. But why educate when we can point and laugh at how scared, misinformed people cannot spell socialism correctly on signs? In fact, tea party protesters air some legitimate grievances. Look at the economic situation that has affected the nations poorest half for the last three decades. Noam Chomsky has tion has continued to rise, a doubly painful phenomenon summed up by the remarkably ist in small towns are vanishing overseas. Cor fragile and thus unlikely or unable to come up with $2,000 in 30 days if it were needed. There is good reason for these people to fear the future, but for the most part they have been distracted by right-wing propagandists who have them worrying about invisible monsters. Blame your problems on the lurking Mexican immigrants who will destroy our nation, just like the Chinese and the Irish did. Or perhaps all the problems are caused by that Marxist president who socializes everything, creating unemployment. Wait a moment: In reality, Would a Republican president want it any other way? Odd, but it seems conservative policies have a tendency to hinder just the sort of people who come out to tea party protests. Some, like veteran journalist Christopher Hitchens, argue that one of the movements major motivations seems to be fear that demographic shifts are a threat to a social order that grants whites great privilege. The manipulathe tea partiers is unacceptable, but all signs poorer, less educated portion of the protesters. Perhaps some tea party sympathizers will not change their beliefs about race even in the face of overwhelming evidence, but it is a diverse group. Many tea party protesters would be glad to consider and confront the true origins of their hardships if they could only Does any of this imply the tea partys policy demands are the right ones? Of course not. So many of their recommendations and demands are founded on huge political and macroeconomic misunderstandings that it makes one wonder if they are talking about the real world. This does not nullify the fact that they also are voters with a right to participate in the electoral process and the ability to cancel out well-reasoned votes if they buy into fabrications. Liberals must make a choice. They can do the easy thing and laugh about the way tea party protesters continue accepting right-wing distortions, or they can roll up their sleeves and take on the civic challenge of speaking candidly to their fellow citizens. If they do the latter, they might see that tea partiers, armed with real facts about the political landscape, do not seem so crazy after all.

Gators in AP PollDo you think the Gators deserve to be ranked in the Associated Press poll after an 8-5 record a season ago? Floridas Big 3 Do you believe the heralded sophomore trio of Ronald Powell, Dominique Easley and Sharrif Floyd have matured since last season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Florida football players Jon Halapio and Earl Okine were involved in a single-car accident Sunday. Both were uninjured and are expected to practice today. See alligatorSports.org for details. David Carr / AlligatorFlorida outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell was named the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenges Most Valuable Player after recording 20 kills and hitting .382 in two games during the weekend. UF VOLLEYBALL JOE MORGANAlligator Writer Sophomore outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell and the Gators know how to start out on the right foot or ankle. No. 9 Florida dominated the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenge during the weekend, sweeping Boston College (25-11, 25-15, 25-16) and North Carolina (25-17, 25-20, 25-14) in straight sets. In perhaps the most telling statistic of the two-day tournament, the Gators recorded a hitting percentage of .327 while their Atlantic Coast Conference opponents managed a meager .092. The only time the Gators broke a sweat during the weekend came in a back-and-forth second set with the Tar Heels. (UNC) did a much better job hitting around the block and forcing our defense (in the second set), UF coach Mary Wise said. Theyre a very well-coached team and you can see why they won a lot of matches last year. Leading the way for the Gators was Ferrell, who was named the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenges Most Valuable Player. Ferrell recorded 20 kills during the weekend and had a .382 hitting per centage, a marked improvement over her career clip of .232. Shes going to be a streaky player and when shes hot as she was in back-to-back matches, then our team said. Its not been an easy transition for her I think for any transfer, theres so many adjustments to be made and there were times when she and I both wondered if we were going to get to this point but no player has worked harder to get to this. Ferrell beat out senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel, who had a solid case of her own for tournament MVP. Jaeckel recorded 19 kills and 14 digs in UFs two games, including a doubledouble (12 kills, 10 digs) in the win against the Tar Heels. When the match started, Kristy left some digs out there, but as the match went on, she did a much better job, Wise said. double, thats the type of perfor mance that we need out of our outside hitters.Florida starts season with sweep of UNC, BC GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterFor much of last year, there were questions about whether thenfreshman defensive tackle Dominique Easley would make it to a second season in a Florida uniform. Rumors that he was considering transferring were rampant, and Easleys four tackles in just six game appearances didnt match the hype that followed Rivals.com ranking him the No. 2 defensive tackle recruit in the country out of high school. But Easley stuck it out, and now hes taking advantage of a fresh start under coach Will Muschamp. junior defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. He has the right mind going into the season. He knows were counting on him to play a lot. He Easley said he felt homesick during his freshman campaign as he struggled to adjust to a lifestyle that was much slower than what he became accustomed to growing up in Staten Island, N.Y. There were also reports that No longer homesick, DT Easley ready to step upTellELLING youYOU Wa A TTS uUPForget waiting until Sept. 3. Those eager to see Coach Boom in action need only look to Wednesday nights press conference. Will Muschamp ended a team scrimmage early because, he said, his team was lethar gic in situational drills, leading to an impassioned display in front of reporters and TV cameras. But practice is closed. It has been since spring. The only people who know whats going on arent talking about it, or arent allowed to. How do we know if practice was really that bad? Heres what Muschamp had to say: We did not execute very well. Mental toughness was not there. Very immature football team at this point. Not consistently performing at the level we need to perform at. Overall, pretty displeased. Not what we were looking for tonight, thats for sure. He went on to add: Its just a lack of focus on what youre supposed to do and how youre supposed to do it. Were in (a two-minute drill); we have guys walking around. We have no sense of urgency about what we do and how we do it and how we approach it. Very frustrating. When asked, Muschamp wouldnt call the scrimmage the same one he said would cost potential starters their jobs a step backward, but he did say, It dang sure wasnt a step forward. Sure, coach. Whatever you say. One Voice, right? In reality, Muschamp and his staff must have realized that the spewing overload of positive spin coming from the program Coachs tirade not what it seemsSeeEE Wa A TTS, Pa A GeE 15 SeeEE eaEASleLEY, Pa A GeE 15 Matt WW attstwitter: @wattmatts UF Fo otball WWise SeeEE volleyVOLLEYBALL, Pa A GeE 15129 votesYESS (60%, 78) N NO (40%, 51) MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG

throughout the entirety of fall camp was just too much. Whos starting? Nobody, were all starters. Its a rotation, everyone is good. Hows Johnny look? Great. Amazing. Heisman candidate. The program had to realize that people were starting to expect, at the least, a very competitive football team this fall. Muschamps verbal beatdown was merely a tempering of expectations and a motivational ploy. Defensive tackle Domilatter Thursday. He just wants us to know that were not who were supposed to be yet, he said. Easley said Wednesdays scrimmage wasnt actually that bad. In fact, it was an improvement over the previous two. From my perspective, everything went good, Easley said. Obviously some things went bad. Every team, certain things go bad. But the way I look at it everything went good. He seemed a little upset because some plays went wrong, some people didnt do what they were supposed to be doing, but that happens everywhere. The fact is this team isnt where Muschamp, or the rabid fans of the Gator Nation, expect it to be. There is minimal senior presence, and most of the more-talented players on the roster are underclassmen. Add to the mix a brand new coaching staff and a complicated pro-style scheme on both sides of the ball, and what you get is a mentally confused, young football team. There will be growing pains this fall. There arent many guar antees around this team, but that much you can count on. Just ask Jeff Demps. If we played tonight, I couldnt even tell you [what would happen], Demps said Thursday. Im pretty sure guys would go out and compete and play as hard as they can, but as far as just mentally being there, Im not sure. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org. were part of the reason he considered a switch. Easley was a member of the freshman class former center Mike Pouncey said needed to just shut their mouth and come play, and many felt that Easley and teammates Sharrif Floyd and Ronald Powell entered UF with a sense of entitlement. Easley even compared the trio to the Miami Heats Big 3. might have played a role in Easleys discontent, but Hunter spoke highly of his character overall. [Easley is] a good guy you can get along with easy, Hunter said. He comes out and he talks to everyone. Hes a good teammate. After originally denying transfer rumors in the spring, Easley confessed he considered a change of scenery, but said he decided to per severe through his troubles. I just wouldnt let myself give up, Easley said. Thats a personal pride thing that I took upon myself. Hunter also credited himself and strength and conditioning coach Mark Campbell for Easleys return. Both spoke to him often, with Campbell playing the role of a mentor. Like Easley, Hunter came to UF with extreme pressure and high expectations, equipping him with the perspective necessary to talk Easley through his issues. Now, Easley says hes become wiser and has started making bethe has improved his technique and has learned to read offensive linemore time thinking about football and less time going out. Hunter said Easley has taken ten big steps forward in terms of his maturity, and that the sophomore is working harder while talking less. When Easley does open his mouth, its usually in a fun-loving manner or as an accompaniment to his much-maligned dancing. He has some weird dance moves, I dont know where he gets those from, sophomore guard Jon Halapio said. Those dance moves bring a little energy to the locker room if were having a dull day. If were not feeling practice, hell just come in there and start dancing. Said Easley: I just have fun. I just try to keep dancing. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.

The Gators and Tar Heels went back and forth until two late digs by Jaeckel helped seal a 25-20 win. As a team, we kind of lost focus a little bit, but with those two digs, we regrouped and bounced back, Ferrell said. Kristy motivated the whole team and created momentum and we just rode the wave.

CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Faculty at UF earned about $619 million in research awards for 2011, an 8.7-percent decrease from 2010. The drop in funding comes partly from a decrease in stimulus funds. In 2010, UF received $77 million through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, according to an Aug. 25 press release. This year, the school received about $51 million. However, two departments at UF received more funding in 2011 than they did in 2010. The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences set records with almost $127 million in funding, a 25-percent increase from last year. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences received 9 percent more than it did in 2010, bringing awards to $45.9 million. It is especially gratifying to see our faculty winning more research awards when competition is getting more and more intense, CLAS Dean Paul DAnieri said in the press release.

Todays question: Are you excited about Joel McHale performing at Gator Growl? 58 TOTAL VOTES18% YES 82% NOWhine-One-OneBratty adults dont belong in courtroomAn attempted lawsuit out of Illinois involving two adults and their mother is taking the phrase spoiled little rich kid to a whole new level. Steven Miner, 23, and Kathryn Miner, 20, with the help of their father, attorney Steven A. Miner, brought a suit in 2009, seeking more than $50,000 from their mother, Kimberly Garrity, for emotional distress. The case reached an Illinois appeals court last week, where ers conduct in question to be extreme or outrageous. Not so, say the poor, distressed victims of this alleged child abuse. Well, poor does not qualify as a proper adjective, considering they grew up in a $1.5-million home. But, surely, they must have been quite distressed by their mothers actions. What sort of mother tells her son to buckle his seatbelt when he is 7 years old? Or calls her daughter to tell her to come home after staying out past midnight celebrating homecoming? The horror! The most bizarre complaint from the male plaintiff concerns an inappropriate birthday card he received from his horrible mother. It was inappropriate for two reasons. First, the card featured a grotesque picture of tomatoes with a special one that had been mutilated with craft-store googly eyes. The inside of the card explained how the son was different from all the rest. How dare his mother call him special? Second, the card failed to have any money in it. Again, poor, poor children. The appeals court rightly found that ruling in favor of the child-rearing to excessive judicial scrutiny and interference. In other words, every little Billy and Sarah could potentially bring suit against one of their parents if they failed to buy them that candy bar for which they pined. This could be made even worse for children of divorced par ents, especially if those parents hold a grudge against one another. The children could become tools of revenge. What this case really shows is a lack of respect by the children, who are supposedly educated adults, and the father for the improper use of our judicial system. The courts should be reserved for people who have been seriously harmed, whether it be by a criminal or civil act. These petty lawsuits are ruining the credibility of our judicial system while clogging up the courts for people who actually need them. A lawsuit like this is a costly endeavor, especially for the defendant. Imagine if the plaintiffs who brought zany suits like these had to pay the defendants for all costs incurred if they lose the suit. These children are spoiled little brats who used their fathers counsel and ill-feelings toward their mother to make a mockery of our judicial system.Currently, our country is in the middle of an intense debate on the nature of entitlement programs for present and future generations. This summer, I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa to see how their social programs and regulations function. It is no surprise that when Nelson Mandela came into power in 1994, throngs of people who had been cruelly suppressed for so long desired a more equitable distribution of the countrys wealth. A product of this feeling was the new South African constitution, which South Africans told me was the most progressive in the world. It includes the rights to free housing for the poor, health care for all, rights to employment and even the right of gay marriage. On the surface, it appears to be one of the noblest documents ever produced, that is, before you see what it has helped create. In the slums of Alexandria, the clearest problem was unemployment. The government promised everyone a job, and then instituted a minimum wage for various occupations. The wage is pitifully low by U.S. standards, but there is such an abundance of low-skilled labor from apartheid that any minimum wage seemed to create huge unemployment. In fact, the South African textile industry was suffering severely from Chinese competition. Without the power to lower wages, many companies were forced to close. In the absence of jobs, some young men inevitably join gangs like the Young Americans, JFKs and Ugly Americans, contributing to one of the worlds highest violent-crime rates. certain racial categorization. Private companies in South Africa had to meet ownership requirements in which someone of nonwhite descent had to own a large percentage of the company. One man told me the government was obligated companies with no engineering knowledge and would require millions of dollars more than the price offered by white-owned price they originally bid. litically connected men are driving around in luxury vehicles and have become millionaires. In fact, there are now more black millionaires than white millionaires in South Africa. The intent of the policy was to create broad-based prosperity in the nonwhite community, but it seems that all it has left is an upper-class intent on retaining their wealth generated by a corrupt system. Every indication is that these policies have caused masses to opportunities elsewhere. They are now being limited in the economy of South Africa just as they once limited black Africans. Growth in South Africa is being severely restricted by these redistributive practices, and the tiny tax base is continually diminishing. Now politicians are talking about nationalizing the mining industry, further undermining investor and corporate losses and capital withdrawals. The policy actions taken by the government, given the painful legacy of apartheid, are emotionally understandable; however, they continue to keep South Africas most disadvantaged groups mired in their condition. The mindset instilled in the poor is that the country will take care of them and that they should have low expectations for their own abilities to rise out of poverty. In South Africa, the government promised the moon and has been unable to even deliver a moon rock.

MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Currently, we are more than halfway through Ramadan. As a Muslim, I never want such a time to end, for there is no greater opportunity when one can grow closer to Allah and gain good deeds. This is done through more frequent praying, Quran reciting, spending spiritual moments with loved ones, donating, especially by Muslims at the mosque, to the needy through zakah as a moral and spiritual investment (as well as a major pillar of Islam), and by, of course, participating in the essence of Ramadan: fasting. Noor Najjar, a student, blogger and a very dear friend of of the core concepts of fasting: The best way to understand a person is to step in their shoes. What better way to understand what the hungry or deprived endure except than to step in their shoes for 30 days? Noors post re-instilled this highly relevant and ever true notion. In turn, I would like to expand on it in light of recent global most to exercise self-restraint and demonstrate discipline so that Muslims may become more righteous, theres also a secRamadan provides an opportunity to sympathize with those struggling elsewhere in the world. This could not be more appropriate to the current crises going on worldwide. For instance, East Africa is currently enduring a humanitarian crisis as a result of the worst drought in 60 years. Two failed rain seasons led to crop shortages on top of the Horn of Africas already vulnerable state. It is expected to affect more than 10 million people in countries including Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Djibouti. According to reports by UNICEF, southern Somalia is suffering from lack of proper health care and clean water, and bility is worsening to a critical condition, and hundreds of refuThe images online and on television depicting the famine are beyond distressing. Matters are expected to worsen with no rain forecast in sight. main agencies to afford emergency aid, so your help is crucial. You can help UNICEF meet these needs by texting FOOD to 864233 to donate $10 or visit its website at www.unicefusa.org to donate online. You can also make a donation through numerous other agencies including Islamic Relief Worldwide by simply visiting their website at www.islamic-relief.com, which provides more information on their East Africa appeal. Another life-threatening crisis overseas is Bashar al-Assads government crackdown on the Syrian peoples protests for reform and civil rights. Al-Assads continued use of imprisonment, torture and outright killing of any who oppose him in Syria has in turn made him one of the worst human rights offenders in the Middle East. The tragic stories we hear from Syria hit home with many members of Syrian descent in Toledo who still have family there. This Ramadan, I am not alone in remembering other struggling populations of the world. Every night at my local mosque, I join the prayer of my fellow Muslims in the Toledo community to make a special call (duaa) on behalf of people in Somalia, Syria and elsewhere. Especially because we have basic necessities and securities we should never overlook, the tumult in Africa and in the Middle East often frames our own concerns as quite trivial. powerful reminders of such fundamental concepts. After such not had water since 5 oclock in the morning. I can look forward to breaking my fast and sleeping comfortably at night once the sun sets, but I cannot speak on behalf of the millions of others globally who can not necessarily do so. re-evaluating this world is most humanizing. Ramadan Mubarak to all. Butheina Hamdah writes for The Independent Collegian at the University of Toledo.UWireWho would persuade you better: a per son calmly explaining his evidence or someone calling you an idiot for disagreeing with him? Given how important persuasion is in democracies, you might think this would be well understood by now. Sadly, such common-sense rhetorical knowledge has been disregarded by liberals and Democrats in their approach toward tea party protesters. Outreach and dialogue has taken a permanent backseat to mockery and dismissal. Tea partiers are called gun nuts, lunatics, racists and even terrorists. A terrible myopia has led to a desperate, alienated audience being branded as irredeemably insane, stupid or evil. This strategy was tested in the 2010 midterm elections and it resulted in huge Democratic losses. Media depictions create an image of a tea party that is palpably ignorant and clinging madly to its beliefs. The person holding the Keep the government out of Medicare sign is, of course, clearly out of step with reality. But does that make him evil? No. Perhaps if he were kindly presented with evidence that his Medicare coverage is being threatened by austerity hawks that is, tea party Republicans who are keen on slashing budgets, he would vote differently come election time. But why educate when we can point and laugh at how scared, misinformed people cannot spell socialism correctly on signs? In fact, tea party protesters air some legitimate grievances. Look at the economic situation that has affected the nations poorest half for the last three decades. Noam Chomsky has tion has continued to rise, a doubly painful phenomenon summed up by the remarkably ist in small towns are vanishing overseas. Cor fragile and thus unlikely or unable to come up with $2,000 in 30 days if it were needed. There is good reason for these people to fear the future, but for the most part they have been distracted by right-wing propagandists who have them worrying about invisible monsters. Blame your problems on the lurking Mexican immigrants who will destroy our nation, just like the Chinese and the Irish did. Or perhaps all the problems are caused by that Marxist president who socializes everything, creating unemployment. Wait a moment: In reality, Would a Republican president want it any other way? Odd, but it seems conservative policies have a tendency to hinder just the sort of people who come out to tea party protests. Some, like veteran journalist Christopher Hitchens, argue that one of the movements major motivations seems to be fear that demographic shifts are a threat to a social order that grants whites great privilege. The manipulathe tea partiers is unacceptable, but all signs poorer, less educated portion of the protesters. Perhaps some tea party sympathizers will not change their beliefs about race even in the face of overwhelming evidence, but it is a diverse group. Many tea party protesters would be glad to consider and confront the true origins of their hardships if they could only Does any of this imply the tea partys policy demands are the right ones? Of course not. So many of their recommendations and demands are founded on huge political and macroeconomic misunderstandings that it makes one wonder if they are talking about the real world. This does not nullify the fact that they also are voters with a right to participate in the electoral process and the ability to cancel out well-reasoned votes if they buy into fabrications. Liberals must make a choice. They can do the easy thing and laugh about the way tea party protesters continue accepting right-wing distortions, or they can roll up their sleeves and take on the civic challenge of speaking candidly to their fellow citizens. If they do the latter, they might see that tea partiers, armed with real facts about the political landscape, do not seem so crazy after all.

Gators in AP PollDo you think the Gators deserve to be ranked in the Associated Press poll after an 8-5 record a season ago? Floridas Big 3 Do you believe the heralded sophomore trio of Ronald Powell, Dominique Easley and Sharrif Floyd have matured since last season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Florida football players Jon Halapio and Earl Okine were involved in a single-car accident Sunday. Both were uninjured and are expected to practice today. See alligatorSports.org for details. David Carr / AlligatorFlorida outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell was named the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenges Most Valuable Player after recording 20 kills and hitting .382 in two games during the weekend. UF VOLLEYBALL JOE MORGANAlligator Writer Sophomore outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell and the Gators know how to start out on the right foot or ankle. No. 9 Florida dominated the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenge during the weekend, sweeping Boston College (25-11, 25-15, 25-16) and North Carolina (25-17, 25-20, 25-14) in straight sets. In perhaps the most telling statistic of the two-day tournament, the Gators recorded a hitting percentage of .327 while their Atlantic Coast Conference opponents managed a meager .092. The only time the Gators broke a sweat during the weekend came in a back-and-forth second set with the Tar Heels. (UNC) did a much better job hitting around the block and forcing our defense (in the second set), UF coach Mary Wise said. Theyre a very well-coached team and you can see why they won a lot of matches last year. Leading the way for the Gators was Ferrell, who was named the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenges Most Valuable Player. Ferrell recorded 20 kills during the weekend and had a .382 hitting per centage, a marked improvement over her career clip of .232. Shes going to be a streaky player and when shes hot as she was in back-to-back matches, then our team said. Its not been an easy transition for her I think for any transfer, theres so many adjustments to be made and there were times when she and I both wondered if we were going to get to this point but no player has worked harder to get to this. Ferrell beat out senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel, who had a solid case of her own for tournament MVP. Jaeckel recorded 19 kills and 14 digs in UFs two games, including a doubledouble (12 kills, 10 digs) in the win against the Tar Heels. When the match started, Kristy left some digs out there, but as the match went on, she did a much better job, Wise said. double, thats the type of perfor mance that we need out of our outside hitters.Florida starts season with sweep of UNC, BC GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterFor much of last year, there were questions about whether thenfreshman defensive tackle Dominique Easley would make it to a second season in a Florida uniform. Rumors that he was considering transferring were rampant, and Easleys four tackles in just six game appearances didnt match the hype that followed Rivals.com ranking him the No. 2 defensive tackle recruit in the country out of high school. But Easley stuck it out, and now hes taking advantage of a fresh start under coach Will Muschamp. junior defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. He has the right mind going into the season. He knows were counting on him to play a lot. He Easley said he felt homesick during his freshman campaign as he struggled to adjust to a lifestyle that was much slower than what he became accustomed to growing up in Staten Island, N.Y. There were also reports that No longer homesick, DT Easley ready to step upTELLING YOU W A TTS UPForget waiting until Sept. 3. Those eager to see Coach Boom in action need only look to Wednesday nights press conference. Will Muschamp ended a team scrimmage early because, he said, his team was lethar gic in situational drills, leading to an impassioned display in front of reporters and TV cameras. But practice is closed. It has been since spring. The only people who know whats going on arent talking about it, or arent allowed to. How do we know if practice was really that bad? Heres what Muschamp had to say: We did not execute very well. Mental toughness was not there. Very immature football team at this point. Not consistently performing at the level we need to perform at. Overall, pretty displeased. Not what we were looking for tonight, thats for sure. He went on to add: Its just a lack of focus on what youre supposed to do and how youre supposed to do it. Were in (a two-minute drill); we have guys walking around. We have no sense of urgency about what we do and how we do it and how we approach it. Very frustrating. When asked, Muschamp wouldnt call the scrimmage the same one he said would cost potential starters their jobs a step backward, but he did say, It dang sure wasnt a step forward. Sure, coach. Whatever you say. One Voice, right? In reality, Muschamp and his staff must have realized that the spewing overload of positive spin coming from the program Coachs tirade not what it seemsSEE W A TTS, P A GE 15 SEE EASLEY, P A GE 15 Matt W attstwitter: @wattmatts UF Fo otball Wise SEE VOLLEYBALL, P A GE 15129 votesYES (60%, 78) NO (40%, 51) MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG

throughout the entirety of fall camp was just too much. Whos starting? Nobody, were all starters. Its a rotation, everyone is good. Hows Johnny look? Great. Amazing. Heisman candidate. The program had to realize that people were starting to expect, at the least, a very competitive football team this fall. Muschamps verbal beatdown was merely a tempering of expectations and a motivational ploy. Defensive tackle Domilatter Thursday. He just wants us to know that were not who were supposed to be yet, he said. Easley said Wednesdays scrimmage wasnt actually that bad. In fact, it was an improvement over the previous two. From my perspective, everything went good, Easley said. Obviously some things went bad. Every team, certain things go bad. But the way I look at it everything went good. He seemed a little upset because some plays went wrong, some people didnt do what they were supposed to be doing, but that happens everywhere. The fact is this team isnt where Muschamp, or the rabid fans of the Gator Nation, expect it to be. There is minimal senior presence, and most of the more-talented players on the roster are underclassmen. Add to the mix a brand new coaching staff and a complicated pro-style scheme on both sides of the ball, and what you get is a mentally confused, young football team. There will be growing pains this fall. There arent many guar antees around this team, but that much you can count on. Just ask Jeff Demps. If we played tonight, I couldnt even tell you [what would happen], Demps said Thursday. Im pretty sure guys would go out and compete and play as hard as they can, but as far as just mentally being there, Im not sure. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org. were part of the reason he considered a switch. Easley was a member of the freshman class former center Mike Pouncey said needed to just shut their mouth and come play, and many felt that Easley and teammates Sharrif Floyd and Ronald Powell entered UF with a sense of entitlement. Easley even compared the trio to the Miami Heats Big 3. might have played a role in Easleys discontent, but Hunter spoke highly of his character overall. [Easley is] a good guy you can get along with easy, Hunter said. He comes out and he talks to everyone. Hes a good teammate. After originally denying transfer rumors in the spring, Easley confessed he considered a change of scenery, but said he decided to per severe through his troubles. I just wouldnt let myself give up, Easley said. Thats a personal pride thing that I took upon myself. Hunter also credited himself and strength and conditioning coach Mark Campbell for Easleys return. Both spoke to him often, with Campbell playing the role of a mentor. Like Easley, Hunter came to UF with extreme pressure and high expectations, equipping him with the perspective necessary to talk Easley through his issues. Now, Easley says hes become wiser and has started making bethe has improved his technique and has learned to read offensive linemore time thinking about football and less time going out. Hunter said Easley has taken ten big steps forward in terms of his maturity, and that the sophomore is working harder while talking less. When Easley does open his mouth, its usually in a fun-loving manner or as an accompaniment to his much-maligned dancing. He has some weird dance moves, I dont know where he gets those from, sophomore guard Jon Halapio said. Those dance moves bring a little energy to the locker room if were having a dull day. If were not feeling practice, hell just come in there and start dancing. Said Easley: I just have fun. I just try to keep dancing. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15Alligator File PhotoAfter nearly transferring a season ago, sophomore defensive tackle Dominique Easley said he is well adjusted to life in Gainesville. He said he had trouble with the move from Staten Island, N.Y. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffOutside hitter Kristy Jaeckel was named to the Active Ankle ACC/SEC Challenge All-Tournament team. Hunter, strength coach instrumental in Easleys maturation EASLEY, from page 13 W A TT S, from page 13Freshman Unroe games at libero However, Jaeckels biggest contribution of the weekend came late in the second set against North Carolina. The Gators and Tar Heels went back and forth until two late digs by Jaeckel helped seal a 25-20 win. As a team, we kind of lost focus a little bit, but with those two digs, we regrouped and bounced back, Ferrell said. Kristy motivated the whole team and created momentum and we just rode the wave. Ferrell and Jaeckel were two of the four Gators named to the Active Ankle SEC/ACC Challenge All-Tournament team, joining senior setter Kelly Murphy and redshirt freshman libero Taylor Unroe. After redshirting the 2010 season because of her collegiate debut. Last year was pretty much terrible sitting on the bench, Unroe said.
