MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 CAITLIN E. OCONNERAlligator Staff WriterRajvi Doshi was nervous. But when the lights came up and made the sequins glimmer on her orange-and-blue skirt and blouse, it was time to perform for 950 people. Adrenaline set in. You get over [the nerves] because of the pure adrenaline rush, she said. Doshi, a member of dance team GatoRaas and a 19-year-old nutrition sophomore, was one of about 200 performers at the Indian Student Associations Diwali Show on Saturday night. Glow-in-the-dark lights and a stage decorated with colored Christmas lights paid homage to the Hindu observed Wednesday. The show, held at the Phillips Center, featured a fashion show, dance groups, singing and a skit woven between dance performances. Tulsi Patel, the shows director, said the Diwali Show is one of the associations biggest annual events because Diwali is an important holiday to Hindus, almost like Christmas. The festival is usually celebrated with do away from home. The show helps us stay grounded in our culture, said Patel, a 20-yearwe may not always get in college. Naomi Abraham, one of the shows MCs, told the audience the show was great because we can hold onto our culture even though most of us were born here in the United States. The show also featured the Indian and American national anthems and hip-hop infusions into Indian dance styles, with the jingle and clink of anklets, bangles and coin-adorned clothing punctuating dancers movements. After attending for the fourthstraight year, Sandra Kerrutt, 21, a microbiology senior, said her favorite parts of the show are its color and wide variety of Indian dances. For her, the show is nostalgic. It reminds me of things I used to do as a kid but dont anymore, she said. And it serves as a cultural reminder. For more of this story, visit alligator. org.

The groups are a part of the Lambda Car Club International, the largest international gay-and-lesbian car club with more than 2,200 members and 30 chapters nationally, according to the clubs website. Since 2001, the groups have been bringing their antique cars to par ticipate in the parade, said Gordon Lawyer, 57, a member of the Pride Community Center of North Central This year, the cars had multicolored streamers attached to them for the parade. Its just like any other social population who like to celebrate their culture whether you are lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered or questioning, Lawyer said. Craig Lowe, mayor of Gainesville and open member of the LGBTQ community, said the parade is a good opportunity to celebrate diver sity in Gainesville. Lowe said he has been active in the festival since it started in 1992. The value placed upon equality is increasing, he said. Well see much more emphasis put upon equality in the future.

Angry AtheistShould prayer be in public schools mural?The issue of religion in public schools is messy at best. How can public schools refrain from respecting a particular establishment of religion while also respecting the right of its students to worship freely? Public schools, as agents of the government, are bound by the same limitations placed on other state institutions by the First Amendment. Originally, the Bill of Rights applied only to Congress, but after years of case law, it now applies to state and local governments. This issue recently arose in a case out of Rhode Island in which a 16-year-old atheist student challenged the display of a mural bearing an obviously religious prayer at her high school. Jessica Ahlquist, the student, has taken the school district to court in an attempt to get the mural taken down, which she says is offensive to non-Christians. While the offensiveness of the mural is quite subjective, the fact that the mural hangs in the public school and begins with the phrase Our Heavenly Father and ends with Amen indicates the school has overstepped its constitutional obligations. The school has argued that the mural is meant to represent the history of the school rather than respect a particular religion, given that the banner was presented by the Class of ple of things are problematic about this mural. First, the top of the banner reads School Prayer, indicating the prayer is not that of the Class of 1963 but that of the school. If it read Class Prayer of 1963, the school might have an argument to preserve its history. Second, the attorney representing the city has claimed, played as a secular, nonreligious artifact. But as it hangs now, the banners religious content does violate the First Amendment rights of nonreligious students at this high school. Regardless of the intentions of the school, the display indicates the school is respecting the establishment of religion. While the complete removal of the prayer from the wall might be unnecessary, the school should look into ways of tion. A simple answer would be to place a disclaimer at the bottom of the mural indicating its origin. If the state is going to force compulsory education among its younger residents, it should ensure that no beliefs (or lack thereof) are alienated.Education needs comprehensive overhaulWly, a fellow student said the reason we need policies that give minorities preference in admissions to the best institutions of higher learning is because of educational inequality in primary and secondary schools. As a society, we have been content with the grossly negligent behavior of tolerating subpar educational instruction for minorities and the poor. We wait until students are 18 years old to blame lower SAT scores on racism, and egories in the name of diversity. the most comprehensive overhaul of the educational infrastructure in this country since desegregation. This over haul starts with changing how we view the profession of teaching. Two generations ago, women were largely restricted to select professions if they worked out of the home, and chief ers society placed on women, there was a large amount of talent in the teaching profession. As women have gained options besides the traditional roles of nurse and teacher, there are no longer any barriers to prevent talent from Today, students who choose education as a major are drawn from the lower end of the academic distribution in college as measured by SAT and ACT scores. Education is rated, in a recent academic study by Wake Forest, as the easiest of all college majors; the average GPA of education majors is 3.36. These metrics suggest we are drawing people to the education profession who cant cut it as engineers or scientists at the detriment mostly to disadvantaged students. The reason the stats on those who go into teaching are so discouraging is because of how discouraged teachers are when they enter the profession. Teachers are treated like industrial-age factory workers, and their unions demand they be treated as such. Because of the push against grading teachers, we have turned teaching into a static profession with little prestige. I think it is critical that every facet of teachers employment contracts be reevaluated. While it would be a huge mistake to think that teacher ability can be measured by one test such as the FCAT, a holistic evaluation method looking at administration, student and parent feedback in combination with test scores on other nationally normed tests would be a good place to start. The tenure review period for teachers must be extended. Some teachers get tenure in three years, but it takes our professors usually seven years before they can be assured of job security. Currently, teachers are paid based on years of experience and any higher degrees they might have. In an era ters programs ad naseum, this is an archaic compensation structure that should be eliminated. Worst of all, when all teachers are treated the same and there are no incentives for performance, the best teachers will choose to go to the nicest suburbs and teach the richest students. It is an implicitly higher form of payment to teach students from better backgrounds, thus making these teaching positions more competitive. Minority students growing up in tough neighborhoods get teachers who are demoralized and who just try to sur vive because the teachers get no support and are paid low wages with no monetary incentives to do their best. Disincreased focus on pay for performance in teaching. guilt at creating a system that gives minorities and the poor slim-to-none chance at success with teachers who have no reason to be vested in their students academic progress.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 In a recent New York Times article, environmental journalist Elisabeth Rosenthal asked, Where did global warming go? It is the question of a confused and frustrated person who was hopeful about climate change mitigation in 2008 but has lately become more pessimistic. In many ways, her feelings echo mine. Both politicians and the public seem less concerned with climate change than they were three years ago, and governmental action seems unlikely in the near future. While this can partially be attributed to the powerful fossil-fuel lobbying and the economic recession, I think a large part of the problem stems from the way we talk about climate change. Climate scientist and Princeton University professor Robert Socolow addressed this in an essay published last month. Socolows main claim to fame in the climate world is a 2004 paper that argued that, contrary to popular belief at the time, it was possible to stabilize greenhouse gas emissions for the next 50 years using technologies we already had. Though no technology was sufif we combined seven technologies. Many climate scientists and activists greeted this paper with excitement. Here was a precise, doable plan for the next 50 years. Surely the government and the public would take heed. In his recent essay, Socolow mused on why his paper failed to galvanize action. Mainly he sees this as a failure of communication, and I think there is truth to what he says. The current rhetoric is both divisive and alienating. Many skeptics refer to climate advocates (both scientists and activists) as global warming alarmists. Activists, on the other hand, dismiss skeptics as climate deniers and idiots. The thing is, both camps are correct. There is uncertainty in the science and as a result, climate models predict a variety of possible future scenarios. These scenarios include both extremes situations where carbon emissions do not have much environmental impact (for a while, that is) and situations where the world spirals out of control with a 5-meter sea mately massive human mortality. More likely effects that are not of such apocalyptic magnitudes. The problem is, it is hard to predict exactly where the threshold levels are. We know increased carbon dioxide levels will have cer tain effects, we just dont know when exactly those effects will materialize. Scientists and activists seem reticent to mention uncertainty or that the more stable scenario is possible. They fear that doing so will lead to inaction. But, rather than spurring action, the alarmist approach has opened the door for skeptics to poke holes in the story and to accuse climate scientists of lying or distorting the data. A different approach, as proposed by Socolow, would be to present climate change as a risk, rather than as a doomsday prophecy lurking around the corner. In doing so, scientists and activists would acknowledge that the scenario painted by skeptics is plausible (in short, at some point, our emissions will catch up with us), thus at least somewhat neutralizing that argument. Climate scientists and activists would seem reasonable and trustworthy rather than extreme. And if we told Americans that there is a small chance greenhouse gas emissions might have little affect over the next 100 years, an equally small chance that these emissions could be catastrophic, and a big chance that these emissions would cause very severe (but not catastrophic) problems, I think most would rather play it safe. We could get past this stalemate of he said, she said. Part of the problem stems from how we talk about the environment more generally. Climate change and environmentalist rhetoric often pits humans against or outside of the environment. We must save the planet. Though dramatic expressions may rouse some, I believe that this strategy is actually alienating to many. No one wants to save the planet or even cute polar bears if it is at the expense of oneself or ones family. No one wants to save the planet by destroying the economy. Skeptics often warn that our focus on climate change distracts attention and resources from alleviating world poverty. But the truth is, we are part of the system, and our rhetoric and policy should both rebecause of how they affect people and societies, not merely because of how they impact animals or plants. If greenhouse-gas emissions continue to rise, the problems of the developing world such as drought, hunger, not us or the environment. It is us and the environment. By saving the planet, we are saving ourselves. Miriam Geronimus is a columnist for The Daily Princetonian at Princeton University.Global warming on backburner due to scare tactics, dramatizationUWireMirian GeronimusUWire Our country needs to have a serious conversation about must leave their talking points at the door Republinever raise taxes, and Democrats need to be willing to consider proposals that do not disproportionately thump the richest of Americans. Despite what you may have heard, taxes are not spiraling out of control quite the opposite. Last year, federal tax receipts fell to their lowest levels since 1950, now just 14.9 percent of gross domestic product compared to the post-World War II average of 18-to 19-percent. This may not seem like a big drop, but the difference amounts to approximately $560 billion Medicare shortfalls in perpetuity. There are a few reasons for the drop. Some are structural and beyond immediate control, like the collapse of tax revenue when the economy slipped into recession. Others are the result of short-sighted public policy namely, the Democrats extension of the Bush tax cuts and their gradual chipping away at payroll tax rates. Coupled with a decrease in tax revenue, the spike in federal spending both as a result of automatic stabilizers and discretionary attempts at stimulus has resulted in some of the day predictions of those who think soaring levels of debt will push America to the brink of insolvency as it has with Greece and Portugal, there is no doubt that the path we are on is unsustainable. Currently, a dollar made from labor is taxed at a much higher rate than a dollar made from investment, thanks to the egregious carried-interest loophole that allows billionaire investors like Warren Buffett and 26.5 percent of households making more than $1 million a year to get away with paying lower Progressive taxation is also undermined by payroll taxes. Because the portion of taxable income is capped at $106,800, payroll taxes are actually regressive: The rich pay a much smaller share of their overall income in payroll taxes than those in lower income brackets. The last major problem with our tax code is that corporate lobbyists have been able to carve out a whole host of loopholes, allowing the companies they represent to pay little to nothing in taxes. In 2008, Goldman Sachs paid only 1.1 percent of its infollowing year, Chevron received a $19-million refund from the Last year, Bank of America received a $1.9-billion tax refund Im more than happy to see American companies make tons of money thats one of the great things about capitalism. But if companies want the rights of personhood, when it comes to protections under the law, then they should bear the responsibilities of personhood as well. Why should corporations be exempt from paying the same level of taxes as the rest of us? Instead of distinguishing between different income types income from labor, income from capital gains and corporate income I would treat them all equally. All realized income above approximately $50,000 (the exact number should deof 25 percent without exceptions or deductions. This means Warren Buffett would pay the same rate on the last dollar of mine above $50,000. To put these numbers into perspective, a middle-class family making $75,000 a year would be responsible for paying the loopholes have been removed, wealthy individuals would end up paying no more than 25 percent of their total income in federal taxes, a much lower rate than is seen in any other developed country with the exceptions of Andorra, Monaco and Switzerland. be simple without being simplistic and progressive without being unfair. Not only would it save millions of man-hours spent IRS agents, this plan would increase revenues back to approximately 19 percent of GDP the upper end of historical aver ages once exempted income is taken into account. By itself, adjusting the tax code so that it is more progressive and less susceptible to lobbyist-driven loopholes will a strong foundation for reviving the middle class, kick-starting demand and restoring our economys footing so that it will once again be the envy of the world.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 Campaign Check A promise the commissioner A lot of promises get tossed around during election out, we fact-checked promises made by the six At-Large 1 candidates for the Gainesville City Commission. Well do another round of fact-checking before elections Sources: Thomas Hawkins, Gainesville city commissioner; Jeanna Mastrodicasa, Campaign Check Dejeon Cain James Ingle Donna Lutz Darlene Pifalo Lauren Poe Harold Saive Promise is beyond the citys by a city commissioner Partially possible promise?Unsure of what the candidate is promising James Ingle and Dejeon Cain Promise: To allow bars and clubs to stay open until 4 a.m. but require they stop serving alcohol at the current time of 2 a.m., also known as soft closing. Reason: Its within the citys power to change this rule. Bars and clubs have to close at 2 a.m. The City Commission could change this rule by changing the code of ordinances. Lauren Poe Promise: for domesticand child-abuse victims. Reason: Poe laid the groundwork for this project during his time on the City Commission as a District 2 commissioner, and its within the citys power to continue this project. Darlene Pifalo Promise: To ask questions about the Gainesville Regional Utilities biomass plan to see how it will affect residents. Reason: Any commissioner can ask questions, but this is a vague promise. Donna Lutz Promise: To look into prohibiting UF freshmen and sopho mores from bringing cars to campus in order to decrease transportation problems in the city. Reason: The city doesnt control that. UF does. ?Harold Saive Promise: To consolidate the Gainesville City Commission with the Alachua County Commission. Reason: It depends how far Saive wants to take the consolidation. The City Commission would be able to make an arrangement with the County Commission to City Commission wouldnt be able to disband itself and completely give power over to the county. A higher legislative body would have to decide that. James Ingle Promise: To initiate a local hiring preference to ensure that city projects employ city residents. Reason: The city has to obey the state Consultants Competitive Negotiation Act of 1973, which promotes fair competition without favoritism for architects, engineers, surveyors and other professions named in the act. Because of the act, a city cant pass anything that states Gainesville contractors will get automatic commissioners have a certain amount of wiggle room that they can use to advocate that a city business deserves to be hired for a project. Commissioner Thombusinesses within the legal parameters but said more can always be done. Dejeon Cain Promise: To let other utilities companies do business in Gainesville, such as Clay Electric, so residents will have more options than just Gainesville Regional Utilities. Reason: Outside City Commission jurisdiction. The Florida Public Service Commission sets the territories for municipal utilities companies for water, electricity and other services. The Florida Public Service Commission doesnt allow for overlap, so other companies cant encroach on Gainesville Regional Utilities area due to state law. Dejeon Cain Promise: To expand Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP) so vans will pick up and drop off students on Archer Road. Reason: The UF Police Department runs SNAP, so UF gets to decide where the vans run. Not the city. Donna Lutz and Darlene Pifalo Promise: To extend citizen comment to give people more than three minutes to speak. Reason: City commissioners could pass a resolution.

Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Poll ResultsWith seven players arrested this year, do you think coach Will Muschamps Florida Way is working? Junior Mia Piccio propelled the SEC/Pac-12 Challenge this weekend in Knoxville, Tenn. See Story Online at alligatorSports.org. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Quickly rising, Mary Wise got vocal. Her team, in the midst of a 22-set winning streak, was watching things snowball out of control, falling behind Mississippi State by eight points in the second set of Sundays game. What came next was much different. The Gators (17-3, 10-1 Southeastern Conference) took the following eight points en route to a second-set victory and an eighth consecutive straight-set win (25-23, 25-18, 25-18) In set two, it was two different teams, Wise said. A lot of credit to Kristy Jaeckel. Floridas senior outside hitter went on a serving tear, stepping behind the end line seven times in a row and launching a potent UF offensive attack. Her serves opened the way for junior right-side hitter Tangerine Wiggs and senior middle blocker Cassandra Ander son, both of whom had strong perfor mances Sunday, especially in the second set. Kristys serving run really set it off for us, Wiggs said. When youre down that much, you cant really think about it in the big picture. Wiggs and Anderson combined to hit .734 in the second set, with eight of the teams 13 kills. Anderson also added two of her four blocks during that set. As they have at times during this cur rent winning streak, the Gators started slow, battling back and forth with an overmatched opponent for a large por tion of the day. Leading the SEC in both hitting per centage and opponent hitting percentage, the Gators were out-hit .286 to .250 third set against South Carolina, it was to-back sets since late September. We werent real good at defending against their left-side hitters, but part of that was how good their left-side hitters were, Wise said. age of .304 was their lowest since Sept. 30 against Auburn. While Jaeckels serving was a key David Carr / AlligatorSenior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckels impressive serving performance helped lead the Gators to a come-from-behind second-set victory on Sunday. Jaeckel lifts Florida to eighth straight win MEGAN WALSHAlligator Writer Although a Gator played in each of the quar east Regional Championships, only junior Lauren Embree was in the middle of the second game of her morning match at the Ring Tennis Complex against Georgias Lauren Herring when Herring fell to the ground clutching her left ankle. Although Herring returned to play, she only lasted one rally before retiring and meeting Embree at nals with a 2-0 win. It started yesterday against (Ecaterina) Vasenia from South Florida, UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. [Embree] hit the ball marvelously, and she played well again [Sunday]. She played smart when she had to, and overall I feel really good. This is exactly what she needed. Embrees pace and volleys have been key to her success this weekend, which continued with a straight-set 6-4, 6-2 victory against No. 3 seed Jillian ONeill of Georgia Tech. I played a lot better as the time went on, and I played a pretty good player this afternoon, Embree said. I had to play well in order to win. behind 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 victory against Miamis Anna Bartenstein, the tournaments No. 2 seed. Although Oyen then fell to fourth-seeded Chelsey Gullickson from Georgia in straight sets, 1-6, 1-6, Thornqvist said he has seen a lot of improvement in the Leopoldsburg, Belgium natives son. Embree lone Gator to move on to finalsSOCCERJOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer On Senior Day, coach Becky Burleighs decision to give one senior a chance to shine proved costly. In the 30th minute Sunday, LSU keeper Mo Isom cleared the Natalie Martineau controlled the ball and played it up to Tigers leading scorer Taryne Boudreau, who blasted a shot from 30 yards out, over the outstretched arms of 5-foot-6 Florida senior keeper Brooke Chancey. We gave up a bad goal, Bur leigh said. No. 13 Florida (14-5, 7-3 Southeastern Confer ence) was unable to come back, losing 1-0 to LSU (12-6-1, 7-3 SEC) dium. The Gators coach gave Chancey the start ahead of freshman Taylor Burke, whose play earned her the majority of the time in net during conference play. Chancey came in with just two SEC appearances on the season. The seniors last action was on Oct. 9 against Alabama, a game in which she started but was replaced in favor of Burke after the in the 22nd minute. Burke had a goals against average of .91 prior the game, compared to 1.17 for Chancey. Against LSU, Chancey was once again pulled at halftime and replaced with the 6-foot-1 Burke, who was not forced to make a save in the second half.

said she started Chancey with the intention of playing her the entire game. We were not planning on making the change, Burleigh said. With the Tigers a game behind the Gators in the standings entering Sunday, and South Carolina (14-5, 8-2 SEC) coming to Gainesville on le, Florida had control of its path to the SEC regular-season title. But that changed with Sundays loss Fridays matchup with the SECleading Gamecocks is a must-win. Burke went untested, because for the second time in their last three games the Gators controlled on numerous scoring chances. In a span of six minutes following the Boudreau goal, Florida had three corner kicks and six shots. Burleigh said the Gators played able to complete their chances were within six yards of the net. The Tigers bunkered down in the second half, dropping several players back to not give the Gators space to create, but Burleigh said the conservative defense was not an excuse for the lack of offensive results. Its not like we have not seen that from half the SEC schedule, Burleigh said. Its not something we are not prepared to deal with. with it in the second half? Absolutely not. The Gators leading scorer, for ward Erika Tymrak, said the ofteam prepares for the Gamecocks. to be worked on in practice this week. Sept. 2 that she did not register double-digit kills. Typically known as a power team, Florida resorted to more touch-oriented kills against Mississippi State (10-11, 5-7 SEC). Anblowing the ball out of bounds and giving them points, she said. Digs continued to be an area of improvement for the Gators as 10 digs against the Bulldogs, contributing to a team total of 47. For Florida, Sundays game came after two days of light practice in which the team focused more on quality than quantity in the wake of a draining road stretch. Wiggs said the reduced workload helped the team after a grueling week. It was so comforting that [the coaches] do listen to us, Wiggs MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFreshman Taylor Burke (No. 0) did not start against LSU, and senior Brooke Chancey allowed the Tigers only goal in a 1-0 loss.

Sometimes she tries to be too creative, sort of out rected that this weekend. Gullickson, who won the 2010 NCAA singles championship, also handed the Gators a loss with her Sunday morning, as the pair defeated Floridas Caroline Hitimana and Olivia Janowicz 8-5. Embree is set to face Gullickson have faced off in Gainesville. They played here last year, and it was a tiebreak for the third set, so it was one of those thrillers able to win, Thornqvist said.

But when the lights came up and made the sequins glimmer on her orange-and-blue skirt and blouse, it was time to perform for 950 people. Adrenaline set in. You get over [the nerves] because of the pure adrenaline rush, she said. Doshi, a member of dance team GatoRaas and a 19-year-old nutrition sophomore, was one of about 200 performers at the Indian Student Associations Diwali Show on Saturday night. Glow-in-the-dark lights and a stage decorated with colored Christmas lights paid homage to the Hindu observed Wednesday. The show, held at the Phillips Center, featured a fashion show, dance groups, singing and a skit woven between dance performances. Tulsi Patel, the shows director, said the Diwali Show is one of the associations biggest annual events because Diwali is an important holiday to Hindus, almost like Christmas. The festival is usually celebrated with do away from home. The show helps us stay grounded in our culture, said Patel, a 20-yearwe may not always get in college. Naomi Abraham, one of the shows MCs, told the audience the show was great because we can hold onto our culture even though most of us were born here in the United States. The show also featured the Indian and American national anthems and hip-hop infusions into Indian dance styles, with the jingle and clink of anklets, bangles and coin-adorned clothing punctuating dancers movements. After attending for the fourthstraight year, Sandra Kerrutt, 21, a microbiology senior, said her favor ite parts of the show are its color and wide variety of Indian dances. For her, the show is nostalgic. It reminds me of things I used to do as a kid but dont anymore, she said. And it serves as a cultural reminder. For more of this story, visit alligator. org.

Angry AtheistShould prayer be in public schools mural?The issue of religion in public schools is messy at best. How can public schools refrain from respecting a particular establishment of religion while also respecting the right of its students to worship freely? Public schools, as agents of the government, are bound by the same limitations placed on other state institutions by the First Amendment. Originally, the Bill of Rights applied only to Congress, but after years of case law, it now applies to state and local governments. This issue recently arose in a case out of Rhode Island in which a 16-year-old atheist student challenged the display of a mural bearing an obviously religious prayer at her high school. Jessica Ahlquist, the student, has taken the school district to court in an attempt to get the mural taken down, which she says is offensive to non-Christians. While the offensiveness of the mural is quite subjective, the fact that the mural hangs in the public school and begins with the phrase Our Heavenly Father and ends with Amen indicates the school has overstepped its constitutional obligations. The school has argued that the mural is meant to represent the history of the school rather than respect a particular religion, given that the banner was presented by the Class of ple of things are problematic about this mural. First, the top of the banner reads School Prayer, indicating the prayer is not that of the Class of 1963 but that of the school. If it read Class Prayer of 1963, the school might have an argument to preserve its history. Second, the attorney representing the city has claimed, played as a secular, nonreligious artifact. But as it hangs now, the banners religious content does violate the First Amendment rights of nonreligious students at this high school. Regardless of the intentions of the school, the display indicates the school is respecting the establishment of religion. While the complete removal of the prayer from the wall might be unnecessary, the school should look into ways of tion. A simple answer would be to place a disclaimer at the bottom of the mural indicating its origin. If the state is going to force compulsory education among its younger residents, it should ensure that no beliefs (or lack thereof) are alienated.Education needs comprehensive overhaulWly, a fellow student said the reason we need policies that give minorities preference in admissions to the best institutions of higher learning is because of educational inequality in primary and secondary schools. As a society, we have been content with the grossly negligent behavior of tolerating subpar educational instruction for minorities and the poor. We wait until students are 18 years old to blame lower SAT scores on racism, and egories in the name of diversity. the most comprehensive overhaul of the educational infrastructure in this country since desegregation. This over haul starts with changing how we view the profession of teaching. Two generations ago, women were largely restricted to select professions if they worked out of the home, and chief ers society placed on women, there was a large amount of talent in the teaching profession. As women have gained options besides the traditional roles of nurse and teacher, there are no longer any barriers to prevent talent from Today, students who choose education as a major are drawn from the lower end of the academic distribution in college as measured by SAT and ACT scores. Education is rated, in a recent academic study by Wake Forest, as the easiest of all college majors; the average GPA of education majors is 3.36. These metrics suggest we are drawing people to the education profession who cant cut it as engineers or scientists at the detriment mostly to disadvantaged students. The reason the stats on those who go into teaching are so discouraging is because of how discouraged teachers are when they enter the profession. Teachers are treated like industrial-age factory workers, and their unions demand they be treated as such. Because of the push against grading teachers, we have turned teaching into a static profession with little prestige. I think it is critical that every facet of teachers employment contracts be reevaluated. While it would be a huge mistake to think that teacher ability can be measured by one test such as the FCAT, a holistic evaluation method looking at administration, student and parent feedback in combination with test scores on other nationally normed tests would be a good place to start. The tenure review period for teachers must be extended. Some teachers get tenure in three years, but it takes our professors usually seven years before they can be assured of job security. Currently, teachers are paid based on years of experience and any higher degrees they might have. In an era ters programs ad naseum, this is an archaic compensation structure that should be eliminated. Worst of all, when all teachers are treated the same and there are no incentives for performance, the best teachers will choose to go to the nicest suburbs and teach the richest students. It is an implicitly higher form of payment to teach students from better backgrounds, thus making these teaching positions more competitive.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 In a recent New York Times article, environmental journalist Elisabeth Rosenthal asked, Where did global warming go? It is the question of a confused and frustrated person who was hopeful about climate change mitigation in 2008 but has lately become more pessimistic. In many ways, her feelings echo mine. Both politicians and the public seem less concerned with climate change than they were three years ago, and governmental action seems unlikely in the near future. While this can partially be attributed to the powerful fossil-fuel lobbying and the economic recession, I think a large part of the problem stems from the way we talk about climate change. Climate scientist and Princeton University professor Robert Socolow addressed this in an essay published last month. Socolows main claim to fame in the climate world is a 2004 paper that argued that, contrary to popular belief at the time, it was possible to stabilize greenhouse gas emissions for the next 50 years using technologies we already had. Though no technology was sufif we combined seven technologies. Many climate scientists and activists greeted this paper with excitement. Here was a precise, doable plan for the next 50 years. Surely the government and the public would take heed. In his recent essay, Socolow mused on why his paper failed to galvanize action. Mainly he sees this as a failure of communication, and I think there is truth to what he says. The current rhetoric is both divisive and alienating. Many skeptics refer to climate advocates (both scientists and activists) as global warming alarmists. Activists, on the other hand, dismiss skeptics as climate deniers and idiots. The thing is, both camps are correct. There is uncertainty in the science and as a result, climate models predict a variety of possible future scenarios. These scenarios include both extremes situations where carbon emissions do not have much environmental impact (for a while, that is) and situations where the world spirals out of control with a 5-meter sea mately massive human mortality. More likely effects that are not of such apocalyptic magnitudes. The problem is, it is hard to predict exactly where the threshold levels are. We know increased carbon dioxide levels will have cer tain effects, we just dont know when exactly those effects will materialize. Scientists and activists seem reticent to mention uncertainty or that the more stable scenario is possible. They fear that doing so will lead to inaction. But, rather than spurring action, the alarmist approach has opened the door for skeptics to poke holes in the story and to accuse climate scientists of lying or distorting the data. A different approach, as proposed by Socolow, would be to present climate change as a risk, rather than as a doomsday prophecy lurking around the corner. In doing so, scientists and activists would acknowledge that the scenario painted by skeptics is plausible (in short, at some point, our emissions will catch up with us), thus at least somewhat neutralizing that argument. Climate scientists and activists would seem reasonable and trustworthy rather than extreme. And if we told Americans that there is a small chance greenhouse gas emissions might have little affect over the next 100 years, an equally small chance that these emissions could be catastrophic, and a big chance that these emissions would cause very severe (but not catastrophic) problems, I think most would rather play it safe. We could get past this stalemate of he said, she said. Part of the problem stems from how we talk about the environment more generally. Climate change and environmentalist rhetoric often pits humans against or outside of the environment. We must save the planet. Though dramatic expressions may rouse some, I believe that this strategy is actually alienating to many. No one wants to save the planet or even cute polar bears if it is at the expense of oneself or ones family. No one wants to save the planet by destroying the economy. Skeptics often warn that our focus on climate change distracts attention and resources from alleviating world poverty. But the truth is, we are part of the system, and our rhetoric and policy should both rebecause of how they affect people and societies, not merely because of how they impact animals or plants. If greenhouse-gas emissions continue to rise, the problems of the developing world such as drought, hunger, not us or the environment. It is us and the environment. By saving the planet, we are saving ourselves. Miriam Geronimus is a columnist for The Daily Princetonian at Princeton University.Global warming on backburner due to scare tactics, dramatizationUWireMirian GeronimusUWire Our country needs to have a serious conversation about must leave their talking points at the door Republinever raise taxes, and Democrats need to be willing to consider proposals that do not disproportionately thump the richest of Americans. Despite what you may have heard, taxes are not spiraling out of control quite the opposite. Last year, federal tax receipts fell to their lowest levels since 1950, now just 14.9 percent of gross domestic product compared to the post-World War II average of 18-to 19-percent. This may not seem like a big drop, but the difference amounts to approximately $560 billion Medicare shortfalls in perpetuity. There are a few reasons for the drop. Some are structural and beyond immediate control, like the collapse of tax revenue when the economy slipped into recession. Others are the result of short-sighted public policy namely, the Democrats extension of the Bush tax cuts and their gradual chipping away at payroll tax rates. Coupled with a decrease in tax revenue, the spike in federal spending both as a result of automatic stabilizers and discretionary attempts at stimulus has resulted in some of the day predictions of those who think soaring levels of debt will push America to the brink of insolvency as it has with Greece and Portugal, there is no doubt that the path we are on is unsustainable. Currently, a dollar made from labor is taxed at a much higher rate than a dollar made from investment, thanks to the egregious carried-interest loophole that allows billionaire investors like Warren Buffett and 26.5 percent of households making more than $1 million a year to get away with paying lower Progressive taxation is also undermined by payroll taxes. Because the portion of taxable income is capped at $106,800, payroll taxes are actually regressive: The rich pay a much smaller share of their overall income in payroll taxes than those in lower income brackets. The last major problem with our tax code is that corporate lobbyists have been able to carve out a whole host of loopholes, allowing the companies they represent to pay little to nothing in taxes. In 2008, Goldman Sachs paid only 1.1 percent of its infollowing year, Chevron received a $19-million refund from the Last year, Bank of America received a $1.9-billion tax refund Im more than happy to see American companies make tons of money thats one of the great things about capitalism. But if companies want the rights of personhood, when it comes to protections under the law, then they should bear the responsibilities of personhood as well. Why should corporations be exempt from paying the same level of taxes as the rest of us? Instead of distinguishing between different income types income from labor, income from capital gains and corporate income I would treat them all equally. All realized income above approximately $50,000 (the exact number should deof 25 percent without exceptions or deductions. This means Warren Buffett would pay the same rate on the last dollar of mine above $50,000. To put these numbers into perspective, a middle-class family making $75,000 a year would be responsible for paying the loopholes have been removed, wealthy individuals would end up paying no more than 25 percent of their total income in federal taxes, a much lower rate than is seen in any other developed country with the exceptions of Andorra, Monaco and Switzerland. be simple without being simplistic and progressive without being unfair. Not only would it save millions of man-hours spent IRS agents, this plan would increase revenues back to approximately 19 percent of GDP the upper end of historical aver ages once exempted income is taken into account. By itself, adjusting the tax code so that it is more progressive and less susceptible to lobbyist-driven loopholes will a strong foundation for reviving the middle class, kick-starting demand and restoring our economys footing so that it will once again be the envy of the world.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 Campaign Check A promise the commissioner A lot of promises get tossed around during election out, we fact-checked promises made by the six At-Large 1 candidates for the Gainesville City Commission. Well do another round of fact-checking before elections Sources: Thomas Hawkins, Gainesville city commissioner; Jeanna Mastrodicasa, Campaign Check Dejeon Cain James Ingle Donna Lutz Darlene Pifalo Lauren Poe Harold Saive Promise is beyond the citys by a city commissioner Partially possible promise?Unsure of what the candidate is promising James Ingle and Dejeon Cain Promise: To allow bars and clubs to stay open until 4 a.m. but require they stop serving alcohol at the current time of 2 a.m., also known as soft closing. Reason: Its within the citys power to change this rule. Bars and clubs have to close at 2 a.m. The City Commission could change this rule by changing the code of ordinances. Lauren Poe Promise: for domesticand child-abuse victims. Reason: Poe laid the groundwork for this project during his time on the City Commission as a District 2 commissioner, and its within the citys power to continue this project. Darlene Pifalo Promise: To ask questions about the Gainesville Regional Utilities biomass plan to see how it will affect residents. Reason: Any commissioner can ask questions, but this is a vague promise. Donna Lutz Promise: To look into prohibiting UF freshmen and sopho mores from bringing cars to campus in order to decrease transportation problems in the city. Reason: The city doesnt control that. UF does. ?Harold Saive Promise: To consolidate the Gainesville City Commission with the Alachua County Commission. Reason: It depends how far Saive wants to take the consolidation. The City Commission would be able to make an arrangement with the County Commission to City Commission wouldnt be able to disband itself and completely give power over to the county. A higher legislative body would have to decide that. James Ingle Promise: To initiate a local hiring preference to ensure that city projects employ city residents. Reason: The city has to obey the state Consultants Competitive Negotiation Act of 1973, which promotes fair competition without favoritism for architects, en gineers, surveyors and other professions named in the act. Because of the act, a city cant pass anything that states Gainesville contractors will get automatic commissioners have a certain amount of wiggle room that they can use to advocate that a city business deserves to be hired for a project. Commissioner Thombusinesses within the legal parameters but said more can always be done. Dejeon Cain Promise: To let other utilities companies do business in Gainesville, such as Clay Electric, so residents will have more options than just Gainesville Regional Utilities. Reason: Outside City Commission jurisdiction. The Florida Public Service Commission sets the territories for municipal utilities companies for water, electricity and other services. The Florida Public Service Commission doesnt allow for overlap, so other companies cant encroach on Gainesville Regional Utilities area due to state law. Dejeon Cain Promise: To expand Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP) so vans will pick up and drop off students on Archer Road. Reason: The UF Police Department runs SNAP, so UF gets to decide where the vans run. Not the city. Donna Lutz and Darlene Pifalo Promise: To extend citizen comment to give people more than three minutes to speak. Reason: City commissioners could pass a resolution.

Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Poll ResultsWith seven players arrested this year, do you think coach Will Muschamps Florida Way is working? Junior Mia Piccio propelled the SEC/Pac-12 Challenge this weekend in Knoxville, Tenn. See Story Online at alligatorSports.org. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Quickly rising, Mary Wise got vocal. Her team, in the midst of a 22-set winning streak, was watching things snowball out of control, falling behind Mississippi State by eight points in the second set of Sundays game. What came next was much different. The Gators (17-3, 10-1 Southeastern Conference) took the following eight points en route to a second-set victory and an eighth consecutive straight-set win (25-23, 25-18, 25-18) In set two, it was two different teams, Wise said. A lot of credit to Kristy Jaeckel. Floridas senior outside hitter went on a serving tear, stepping behind the end line seven times in a row and launching a potent UF offensive attack. Her serves opened the way for junior right-side hitter Tangerine Wiggs and senior middle blocker Cassandra Ander son, both of whom had strong perfor mances Sunday, especially in the second set. Kristys serving run really set it off for us, Wiggs said. When youre down that much, you cant really think about it in the big picture. Wiggs and Anderson combined to hit .734 in the second set, with eight of the teams 13 kills. Anderson also added two of her four blocks during that set. As they have at times during this cur rent winning streak, the Gators started slow, battling back and forth with an overmatched opponent for a large por tion of the day. Leading the SEC in both hitting per centage and opponent hitting percentage, the Gators were out-hit .286 to .250 third set against South Carolina, it was to-back sets since late September. We werent real good at defending against their left-side hitters, but part of that was how good their left-side hitters were, Wise said. age of .304 was their lowest since Sept. 30 against Auburn. While Jaeckels serving was a key David Carr / AlligatorSenior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckels impressive serving performance helped lead the Gators to a come-from-behind second-set victory on Sunday. Jaeckel lifts Florida to eighth straight win MEGAN WALSHAlligator Writer Although a Gator played in each of the quar east Regional Championships, only junior Lauren Embree was in the middle of the second game of her morning match at the Ring Tennis Complex against Georgias Lauren Herring when Herring fell to the ground clutching her left ankle. Although Herring returned to play, she only lasted one rally before retiring and meeting Embree at nals with a 2-0 win. It started yesterday against (Ecaterina) Vasenia from South Florida, UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. [Embree] hit the ball marvelously, and she played well again [Sunday]. She played smart when she had to, and overall I feel really good. This is exactly what she needed. Embrees pace and volleys have been key to her success this weekend, which continued with a straight-set 6-4, 6-2 victory against No. 3 seed Jillian ONeill of Georgia Tech. I played a lot better as the time went on, and I played a pretty good player this afternoon, Embree said. I had to play well in order to win. behind 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 victory against Miamis Anna Bartenstein, the tournaments No. 2 seed. Although Oyen then fell to fourth-seeded Chelsey Gullickson from Georgia in straight sets, 1-6, 1-6, Thornqvist said he has seen a lot of improvement in the Leopoldsburg, Belgium natives son. Embree lone Gator to move on to finalsSOCCERJOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer On Senior Day, coach Becky Burleighs decision to give one senior a chance to shine proved costly. In the 30th minute Sunday, LSU keeper Mo Isom cleared the Natalie Martineau controlled the ball and played it up to Tigers leading scorer Taryne Boudreau, who blasted a shot from 30 yards out, over the outstretched arms of 5-foot-6 Florida senior keeper Brooke Chancey. We gave up a bad goal, Bur leigh said. No. 13 Florida (14-5, 7-3 Southeastern Confer ence) was unable to come back, losing 1-0 to LSU (12-6-1, 7-3 SEC) dium. The Gators coach gave Chancey the start ahead of freshman Taylor Burke, whose play earned her the majority of the time in net during conference play. Chancey came in with just two SEC appearances on the season. The seniors last action was on Oct. 9 against Alabama, a game in which she started but was replaced in favor of Burke after the in the 22nd minute. Burke had a goals against average of .91 prior the game, compared to 1.17 for Chancey. Against LSU, Chancey was once again pulled at halftime and replaced with the 6-foot-1 Burke, who was not forced to make a save in the second half.

said she started Chancey with the intention of playing her the entire game. We were not planning on making the change, Burleigh said. With the Tigers a game behind the Gators in the standings entering Sunday, and South Carolina (14-5, 8-2 SEC) coming to Gainesville on le, Florida had control of its path to the SEC regular-season title. But that changed with Sundays loss Fridays matchup with the SECleading Gamecocks is a must-win. Burke went untested, because for the second time in their last three games the Gators controlled on numerous scoring chances. In a span of six minutes following the Boudreau goal, Florida had three corner kicks and six shots. Burleigh said the Gators played able to complete their chances were within six yards of the net. The Tigers bunkered down in the second half, dropping several players back to not give the Gators space to create, but Burleigh said the conservative defense was not an excuse for the lack of offensive results. Its not like we have not seen that from half the SEC schedule, Burleigh said. Its not something we are not prepared to deal with. with it in the second half? Absolutely not. The Gators leading scorer, for ward Erika Tymrak, said the ofteam prepares for the Gamecocks. to be worked on in practice this week. Sept. 2 that she did not register double-digit kills. Typically known as a power team, Florida resorted to more touch-oriented kills against Mississippi State (10-11, 5-7 SEC). Anblowing the ball out of bounds and giving them points, she said. Digs continued to be an area of improvement for the Gators as 10 digs against the Bulldogs, contributing to a team total of 47. For Florida, Sundays game came after two days of light practice in which the team focused more on quality than quantity in the wake of a draining road stretch. Wiggs said the reduced workload helped the team after a grueling week. It was so comforting that [the coaches] do listen to us, Wiggs MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFreshman Taylor Burke (No. 0) did not start against LSU, and senior Brooke Chancey allowed the Tigers only goal in a 1-0 loss. Loss sets up must-win scenario Friday SOCCER, from page 14 VOLLEYBALL, from page 14Weary Gators switch up style in victory Embree to face 2010 NCAA singles champ into play, and then be creative when the opportunity sort of arose, Thornqvist said. Sometimes she tries to be too creative, sort of out rected that this weekend. Gullickson, who won the 2010 NCAA singles championship, also handed the Gators a loss with her Sunday morning, as the pair defeated Floridas Caroline Hitimana and Olivia Janowicz 8-5. Embree is set to face Gullickson have faced off in Gainesville. They played here last year, and it was a tiebreak for the third set, so it was one of those thrillers able to win, Thornqvist said. Chelsey, [on Sunday], played some of the best tennis Ive ever seen her play frankly, so hopefully shes spent all her bullets, but well see.
