In a proposal sent to Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, the Florida Department of Education, along with 10 other states, requested exemption from cer tain portions of the education law. The move is primarily an effort to streamline schools accountability systems in Florida, said Michael Grego, the special adviser to the Florida education commissioner who is spearheading the states petition. Currently, Florida schools are evaluated based on state grading systems, the A-to-F grades schools receive based on FCAT performance, as well as national standards under the NCLB law. These two systems often differ. Alachua County, for example, is considered an A district by state standards. According to the federal government, however, there is only one school in the district that is making adequate yearly progress: Newberry Elementary School. If Floridas proposal is approved in January, the states grading system would become the only standard by which schools progress is judged. Schools would no longer be required to meet federal mandates, such as the requirement that all students be performing at grade level in reading and math by 2014. W. Dan Boyd, superintendent of Alachua County Public Schools, said federal mandates like this are unreasonable and unrealistic. Boyd said he thinks Floridas evaluation system is comprehensive and rigorous enough to be the only method to gauge progress, citing recent changes to the FCAT that he said will increase the number of failing students statewide. Grego said the petition is really just goal is for Congress to revise the Elementary and Secondary Education Act altogether.

This will be an ordeal, said Coleman, a 21-year-old Spanish senior and member of the UF Rugby Football Club. of the UF vs. University of Central Florida game. UF defeated UCF to win the Florida Cup for the third consecutive year. The match was the culmination of an annual two-day tournament that helps gauge how well Florida teams are playing, said Chris Hannmann, club president and indusRugby is a combination of soccer and football without pads. Players sprint up and down the 100-by-70-meter pitch. The top four Florida teams were invited to this weekends tournament. Florida Atlantic University and Florida International Univer sity joined UCF and UF for a total Before the championship game, the teams huddled separately on the pitch, shouting pep talks peppered with profanity. About 100 people, team members included, attended. At halftime, the Florida players gathered in the shade. The team was winning but having trouble determining where the referees off-sides line was, Coleman said. An off-sides violation occurs when two players are on the ground vying for the ball. If their team members approach those players too closely, they receive a penalty. The UF team returned to the pitch renewed. ogy senior Josh Nicdao broke away from the UCF players and ran for He leaped and rolled into the in-goal area, scoring in what the coaches called the best play of the game. Florida won 31-13. Other UF scorers were Mike Breske, Marcus Ruecker, Paul Scott and Matt Nakamura. half, so I knew we would come out and bring it home, said Nicdao, 22. UF coaches Ken Simmons and Gary Byrne had hoped but not expected to win. We recovered from the penalties and the mistakes, trusted each other and wound up winning and taking charge of the game, Byrne said. Simmons, who is also the Flor ida Rugby Union Collegiate Director, presented the UCF team with a runner-up plaque and the UF players with the trophy. FAU beat FIU in the Plate Championship, so the ranking results of the tournament were UF, UCF, FAU, FIU. Though the UF players went to Mothers Pub and Grill with the UCF team afterward, they do not have much time for celebration. At practice Tuesday, they will switch from 15s, a type of rugby play in which there are 15 players only seven people. This style of play can be more challenging because every player must cover a larger area, Hannmann said. The UF team will play in the USA Rugby Mens and Womens College Sevens National Championship in December. Theyre prepared to lay it out for UF, Byrne said. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2011Elise Giordano / AlligatorAlex Britch, 3, looks at dresses made of recycled papers and bags at the student recycled-art competition, Trashformations, at the Florida Museum of Natural History on Friday.

This semester, Balsamo, a 22-year-old art education senior, let her desk pile high with bills, graded homework and to-do lists. Just looking at it made me sick and stressed out, Balsamo said. However, instead of throwing it all away, Balsamo decided to turn the papers into a piece of art. I wanted to transform something stressful into something meaningful, Balsamo said. As I folded each piece of paper, I felt the stress disappearing. Balsamos piece, Stress Dress, received an honorable mention in this weekends Trashfor mations, a student recycled-art competition. It was one of 34 pieces entered in the 13thannual event. Artwork shown in the Florida Museum of Natural History foyer on Friday night ranged from a plastic whale stuffed with packing peanuts to a mythological creature made of tin cans. The main purpose of this competition is for young folks to look at waste in a different way so they dont mindlessly throw things away anymore, said Patrick Irby, recycling program coordinator for Alachua County Public Works. Each piece of art was made out of 70 percent or more recyclable materials. There was one judge for each of the three categories: middle school, high school and college. Jeff Huber, a staff sculptor for the museum, judged the UF and Santa Fe College entries. Im more of a purist, Jeff Huber said.

THERE IS AN INCREASE IN CRIME AND CAR BURGLARIES WHEN STUDENTS GO OUT OF TOWN. MINA RADMAN Alligator WriterStudents preparing to leave town this week should take extra precautions to keep their belongings safe while away. Angelina Valuri, spokeswoman for the Gainesville Police Department, said there is usually an increase in crime during holiday breaks because criminals are aware that students are out of town. There is also an increase in car burglaries, she said. Gabrielle Shaw, a 19-year-old anthropology sophomore, is packing her electronics and locking the bedroom door in her off-campus apartment before she heads home to South Florida. Shaw, who declined to name her apartment complex, is worried about keeping her apartment safe. I dont like the fact that we dont have an alarm system, Shaw said. To protect belongings, Valuri recommends students be extra cautious about locking doors and windows and leave a light on in their apartments to make it look like someone is home. Cars left in town during the breaks should be parked in well-lit areas, and the windows should be tightly closed, she said. Ivette Landrian, a 20-year-old microbiology and cell science junior, said she and her three roommates arent too worried about keeping their apartment safe. I just assume its a good area, and well keep the doors locked, Landrian said. The police department increases patrols in common student apartment complexes during the breaks, Valuri said. Although there isnt an increase in on-campus crime during breaks, the University Police Department recommends students who live in residence halls take precautions, said Maj. Brad Barber, assistant director of UPD. If bicycles and cars must be left on campus dur ing breaks, they should be parked in well-lit areas and securely locked, Barber said. The residence halls will be open for students to access during Thanksgiving break but will be closed during the semester break and only accessible with a staff escort, said Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for student affairs at the UF Department of Housing and Residence Education. There wont be any other extra precautions taken, and students are encouraged to take valuables with them, Blansett said. Students who encounter any problems or fear something has been stolen should contact Univer sity Police immediately, Barber said. Landrian said one thing she doesnt do before leaving town is post her travel plans on Facebook. Im always paranoid about that stuff, she said. dont need anyone else to know. Not posting travel information online could be the most important precaution students can take, Barber said. Now they know when youre going and coming back, he said.Police: Students should take extra precautions for holidays people had put their names on Sanders petition. Some added their own comments.

OSullivan said he signed the petition after a friend shared the link on Facebook. It really caught my eye, because Ive always seen Rick Scott as an opponent to education, and here he is with his name on our degrees, OSullivan said. Sanders doesnt think the petition will actually keep Scotts signature off any diplomas but he said its a good way for people to speak out and to raise awareness about the governors policies.

Todays question: Are you going home early for the Thanksgiving holiday?Dose of RealityCommissioner deserves penaltiesIf you happen to sit on a panel that deals with discrimination policy, you probably also dont want to be posting racial slurs online. Its not rocket science. According to the St. Petersburg Times, Pinellas County Commissioner Norm Roche was using the alias Reality to post comments on online news articles. Roche has reportedly railed online against gays and the end of the Dont Ask, Dont Tell military policy. But a lot of politicians supported the policy. Surely thats not enough to fuss about, right? But Reality has posted some negative comments about other minority groups as well. Roche, according to the Times, wrote that St. Petersburg was unique in Pinellas in its number of thug shootings and prostitutes beatings[sic] and social service recipients. Okay, but maybe this was taken out of context. However, Reality complained in 2010 of race pimps, saying whitie [sic] isnt to blame for your ignorance. In another comment, he said, When a white kid and a black kid sit in the same classroom and are given the same information, tasks and assignments and the black kid fails it has nothing whatsoever to do with the teacher, the system, the unions, the funding or the school. Start with a 70 percent out-of-wedlock birthrate. After it was discovered that Roche posted these comments, commission Chairwoman Susan Latvala decided it mittee. Why on Earth would Latvala remove him from this committee? It would have been one thing if Roche had simply option and ends up judging people on the color of their skin rather than individual merit. But this is not the argument that Roche makes. You do not policies who believes there are inherent differences caused by our race. Thats a little scary. Latvala did the right thing in removing Roche from the ing their viewpoints online using aliases from an ethical standpoint, it is interesting to note that the people of Pinellas County might not have ever known Roches racist tendencies. strange behavior and remarks in mind when they go the polls in the next election. Why the heck would Roche admit to posting these things? What he lacks in intelligence, common sense and human City ordinances too strict for developmentWe are often implored to look local after graduation neurial culture and is trying to become a center for start-ups, especially in the tech industry. Unfortunately, the policies of the local government will be sure to stunt is obsessed with collecting large tax revenues, regulating nesses to give to imaginary ones. Alachua County has the highest property tax rate in the millage rate was 23.73 mills. The people who get hit the worst from this are students. While most of us dont own any property, our landlords must pay the full property tax rate to the city and county governments, which gets passed straight on to us in the form of higher rent. On top of gutting us with taxes, the city wants to test alternative energy sources to see if they work or not, so it hits students with some of the highest utility bills in the state of Florida. I had a utility bill of about $500 one month just for my small rental house. Thats more than my family pays for an old, two-story wooden house in the Florida Panhandle. gional Utilities will add hundreds of dollars to the utility asks me to donate to a fund that helps poor people to keep the lights on. The progressives in local government are doing much more to keep them in the dark than I am when the city ordinances that seem to be lengthier than War and Peace. I remember when my church was trying to build on University Avenue. It seemed like there were more employees in the city construction code department than projects going on in the whole region. City employees mandated what color the bricks would be, what kind of lettering would be on the building and what the walkway around the building would look like. These additional regulatory burdens added hundreds of thousands of dollars to the projects cost. The city is attempting to set up Innovation Square in downtown ups with access to below-market rent along with other support ser vices. This is wrong because the city is picking favorites, much like the federal government jobs and subsidizing embryonic entities that will have very high failure rates. While these start-ups are critical to our tree was leaning on our house and coming close to crushing it. We tried to get a tree company out to remove it, but they out trees of a certain diameter, even if they are in danger of causing damage to life and property and are split down the middle. The city forces a hard close on the bars, doesnt attempt to add parking anywhere and has some of the worst roads Ive seen, perhaps because it prioritizes the RTS bus service over everything else. These restrictions are senseless. ting in its own way. It needs to lower property tax rates, stop trying to pick winners and losers and loosen up to allow more personal freedom. If it does these things, it will attract economic growth and businesses that are currently scared away by the antibelief, not everything in life needs an ordinance and an accompanying tax to go with it.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorThe truth about the Florida Animal Rescue ActThere is some misinformation circulating about the Florida Animal Rescue Act. Despite claims, Senate Bill 818/House Bill 597 does not force the transfer of unwantganizations. The act simply requires that shelters maintain a registry of animal rescue groups that are willing to accept animals that would otherwise be killed; provides eligibility criteria for rescue groups wanting to be on the registry; provides criteria under which an animal control agency or animal shelter may reject an applicant for the registry or remove a participant from the registry; and provides reporting requirements. Nowhere in the bill does it state that rescue groups must take animals from a shelter, nor does it state that shelters must give animals to any particular rescue group. It simply mandates collaboration. Instead of supporting common-sense legislation that will save lives, save taxpayer money and mandate private-public partnerships, some opponents are misrepresenting the bills contents and pur pose. Here is why. A statewide survey of rescue groups organizations have had at least one Florida state shelter refuse to work collaboratively with them, then turn around and kill the very animals the organizations were willing to save. The most common reason given was shelters not having a policy of working with rescue groups or being openly hostile to doing so. In addition, 45 percent of survey respondents said they are afraid to complain about inhumane conditions or practices at Florida shelters, because if they did complain, they would not be allowed to rescue animals. And 81 percent of rescue groups that have tried to work with more than one shelter said different shelters have differ ciency and limiting the number of animals who can and should be saved. Studies in other states show that when animal rescue laws are passed, lifesaving goes up. In just one county in California, rescue transfers increased 4,000 a year when it passed a rescue access law. In fact, an analysis of that law found rescue organizations rather than killing them saved the City and County of San Francisco $480,480 in publicly funded animal control costs. It makes no sense for taxpayers to spend money to kill animals when rescue groups are willing and able to save them at private expense. If passed, this legislation would set statewide standards for rescue group access and make it illegal for a shelter to rescue organization is willing to save that animal. Sen. Michael Bennet and Rep. Joseph Abruzzo should be congratulated, and they should be supported for introducing this important, lifesaving legislation based on the best practices from around the country. And if the animals could talk, that is exactly what they would say, too! Bill LeFeuvre, J.D. Director of Program Development No Kill Nation Inc. Deerfield Beach Apples iPod recently celebrated its 10th birthday, and after a decade of being on the market, the line is still going strong. The fact that it is by far the best-selling MP3 player of all time is proof that no other device has been able to match its design, intuitive controls and ease of use. On Oct. 23, 2001, the late Steve Jobs declared, With iPod, Apple has invented a whole new category of digital music player that lets you put your entire music collection in your pocket and listen to it wherever you go. With iPod, listening to music will never be the same again. As was often the case, Jobs was more correct than anybody could have imagined. The iPod was the first of numerous iDevices Apple has launched during the past few years. Every iPod-influenced gadget Apple has created has received rave reviews and critical acclaim. The impact of the device can easily be seen in the design of the iPhone, iPad and the multiple types of iPods currently on the market. The massive success of the iPod changed the fate of Apple. Before its introduction, Apple was known for the Mac line of computers. Now, its questionable whether the Mac or the iPod has better brand recognition. The Macintosh operating system has been growing in popularity in recent years, and its probable that the increasing market shares are thanks to the immense success of the iPod. As Macworld.com puts it, the iPod has a halo effect on the Macintosh operating system and other Apple products, wherein people purchase other Apple products because they have had such a positive experience with the iPod. One of the iPods greatest effects was that it forced people to become comfortable with digital music. In the early 2000s, before iPods and other electronic music devices became widespread, most people pur chased whole albums on CD at local electronics stores. ITunes, which was the first mainstream online music store, owes its early success to its close integration with the iPod. To this day, the only supported way to sync music, photos, videos, apps, podcasts and other content to an iDevice is by using iTunes. The application also changed the dynamics of how music is bought and sold by allowing consumers to pur chase just the songs they want instead of entire albums. The iPod has even created entirely new industries. The mobile app was born from the introduction of the iPhone and iPod touch. The thousands of individuals and companies who now make a living from developing and selling apps in the Apple App Store owe a debt of gratitude to Steve Jobs and the iPod team. Whether the stand-alone iPod has a future now that media-playing functionality is being built into other Apple gadgets like the iPhone and iPad is debatable. Even if Apple no longer sells it after another decade, the effects of the device on the music and consumer electronic industries will always be remembered. David Rabinowitz is a columnist for the Cavalier Daily at the University of Virginia. iPod put Mac on the map, made people sync to digital music ageUWireDavid RabinowitzUWire


STUDENT LIFE MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterFor Samantha Scille, off-campus has a whole other meaning. Scille, a 20-year-old pre-occupational therapy junior, lives in Ocala and commutes to UF. For students like Scille, commuting can present a special set of problems. For Patty Roesch, a 22-year-old journalism junior, the hour drive Brock Seng, a 19-year-old jour nalism sophomore, trained himself to get through a 14-hour day withwait in long lines for expensive meals. Each student has a routine that helps them weather the headache of asphalt and axles. Four days a week, Scille wakes up at 5:30 a.m., eats a bowl of Vanilla Bunches of Oats, hops in her car and treks north on U.S. Highway 441 toward Gainesville. She cranks up the radio to The JOY FM or puts in a CD from her church choir and belts songs to stay awake. She pulls into Gainesville around 8 a.m. First class: statistics 2. Roesch is up by 7 a.m. and out the door by 7:50. She streams Adele, Tim McGraw and Cream on Pandora. A microwave-sized cooler full of cheese, crackers and other snacks sits in her passenger seat. Seng rises at 7 a.m., cooks a hearty breakfast of eggs, bacon and hash browns and leaves by 9:10 a.m. He likes to have Mayday Parade and other punk bands thumping through the speakers. Once the students get to campus, all three drive to the Parkand-Ride lot across the street from Southwest Recreation Center and next to the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. As undergraduate commuters, their only parking option on campus is to buy a Park-andRide parking pass. Ron Fuller, associate director of Transportation and Parking Services at UF, said the Park-andRide lot almost always has open spaces particularly the parking garage. That garage is vastly underutiof parking out there. From the lot, they catch a bus to their classes on the east side of campus. Fuller said his department pays for the nine RTS campus routes. He said the department makes a concerted effort to make sure stua bus from the Park-and-Ride lot. lot within seven to 10 minutes. Seng said the trip from the parking lot to his 10:40 a.m. IntroHe drives directly to the third level of the Park-and-Ride parking for a bus and reads a book or notes off his iPad during the ride. a parking pass for a better space because he is technically an offcampus student. sity to live there, he said.

Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSophomore wide receiver Andre Debose caught touchdowns of 80 and 64 yards as Florida rallied to GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterWhen things looked bleak for Florida, sophomore wide receiver Andre Debose did what he does best. UF trailed Furman 22-14 with less than six minutes to play in the route down the left sideline. After redshirt senior quarter back John Brantley aired it out for him, Debose undercut his defender, secured the catch at the Furman 40yard line and then angled toward the right corner of the end zone, jogging in with his left arm outstretched in celebration of UFs That was a huge play, coach Will Muschamp said. A huge momentum swing in the game. I dont think theres any question about that. with 15 catches, Debose leads the Gators with 423 receiving yards and four touchdowns. His 28.2 yards per catch would rank second nationally if he met the minimum number of grabs necessary to qualify, which ESPN lists at 1.875 per game. Only Georgia Techs Stephen Hill, who averages 30.7 yards per catch on his 23 receptions, has a better mark. Debose also hauled in a 64-yard touchdown late in the third quarter that extended UFs lead to 12. Brantley used play action to stall the defense and then lobbed it deep to Debose, who leaped to bring in the catch over the outstretched arms of Furman safety Derrick Murray. The DB was a little bit too close and I took full advantage of it and beat him with speed, Debose said. I was very surprised the way they played me the second time, usually teams put a safety on top to try to prevent the deep ball from us and they really didnt. Debose, who came to UF with a com, are not surprising. To this point in his career, consistency is what has held Debose catch in three games this season, and in two others he had just one reception for 14 yards. Debose explodes for career day in UF win JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer the only thing slowing down junior Erik Murphys shot has been his inability to stay on the court. While Murphy, a 6-foot-10 forward, is shooting 54.5 percent from three the second-highest mark on the team a string of fouls early in games have caused him to play the fewest minutes His average of 20.7 minutes is 5.3 less per game than the closest starter, senior point guard Erving Walker. Coupled with sophomore Will Yeguete missing time with a concussion, Murphys limited playing time thinned UFs frontcourt against UNF to the point that coach Billy Donovan sent out an unAs the No. 7 Gators (2-1) prepare for a neutral-site game tonight at 7 against Wright State (2-1) in Tampa, Murphy is looking to end his streak of two consecuIts been a couple games, in the Ohio State game I had to give up that foul to not give up a wide-open layup, Mur phy said. He missed both free throws, so in my mind, it was a good foul, and I feel like I had to do that. when UF plays Wright State SENIOR THREW FOR MORE THAN 300 YARDS, FOUR TOUCHDOWNS. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer John Brantley had a performance worth celebrating Saturday. pleted 16 of 28 passes for 329 yards and four touchdowns, notching a career day in the Gators win against Furman in The Swamp. Brantley, who has battled through arm and ankle injuries this season, had career highs in both yards and scores, with his previous bests being three touchdowns against FIU in 2009 and 248 yards against Kentucky in 2010. Brantley connected on touchdowns of 80 yards and 64 yards, both of which were to sophomore receiver Andre Debose. Thats what weve needed coach Will Muschamp said of Brantleys day. Weve needed to be able to hit some chunk plays to be able to get some momentum and be able the get the defense off of us to help out in other areas. Certainly, John being able to do that was big for us. Offensive line issues: With senior Dan Wenger out of Saturdays game with an ankle injury, sophomore Jonotthan Harrison resumed his duties at center. But the snap errors that led to him being replaced at the position two games ago relaunched a snap over Brantleys head and out of the back of the end zone for a safety. Despite the mistake, Muschamp said he felt Har rison gave the Gators the best chance to win and stayed with him for the rest of the game. Embattled left tackle Xavier Nixon got banged up a little bit, according to Muschamp, and was replaced by Kyle Koehne. Koehne started the game at left guard and little-used senior James Wilson saw time at left guard for the Both of those guys responded very well in the game and (Im) very proud of those guys and how they responded, Muschamp said.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer What was supposed to be a successful season for the Gators turned into a repetitive nightmare. Florida was ranked No. 8 in the preseason, but the quality of the team on paper did not translate to the pitch. The squad constantly dug itself into holes, and it resulted in one of the worst seasons in the programs 17-year history. The disappointing campaign came to an end Friday night when No. 2 seed Florida (17-8) fell, 3-2, to UCF (13-4-5) at Pressly Stadium. It was the third straight season UF failed to make it out of the second round of the NCAA tournament. Florida allowed another early goal, this time in the sixth minute. The Gators were able to tie it at 1 in the 24th minute before falling behind UCF for good in the 34th minute. We fought and we also played smart at the same time, coach Becky Burleigh said. Thats a big credit to the maturity of our team as weve progressed through the season. One area UF did not progress in through the year was the early goal. the sixth one UF allowed in the sixth minute or earlier this season. gest reason for Floridas woes against conference opponents, as it en of 11 Southeastern Conference regular-season games. The Gators four SEC losses set a team record. Florida underwhelmed during the second half of the season as it lost three of its last four confer ence matches. UF went more than a month without scoring three goals in a game before its 3-0 opening-round win against Florida Gulf Coast in the NCAA tournament. The Gators eight regular-season losses were their most since 2002, but despite the struggles, Burleigh still found satisfaction in coaching. It was obviously a very disappointing way for us to leigh said. But in saying that, I told our team at the end that Ive really enjoyed working with this team since the day we started in August until now. One of the few bright spots down the stretch for Florida was games, including two multi-goal efforts. She was upset to play her last Theyre going to come back and be even stronger next year, she said. 16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2011 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff MEGAN WALSHAlligator Writer match against Auburn, the Tigers seemed to only score points off the Gators mistakes. But Auburn came out two sets later as an almost entirely new opponent and fought a back-and-forth battle at the net before senior Kristy Jaeckel sealed Floridas 3-0 victory (2510, 25-17, 28-26) Sunday with a decisive kill on a Tigers overpass. While Florida (23-5, 16-3 Southeastern Conference) had to overcome its own nine service errors to sweep Auburn (10-19, 4-15 SEC), the third-set scare may have been exactly what the Gators needed before one last regular-season game Wednesday and the start of the NCAA Tournament. At the end they really pushed us, senior Kelly Murphy said. They dug some of our great shots, and I think for us to be able to growth of our team. I think were at a great point at this time of the season. Murphy led the offense and hit .615 with eight kills and no errors. But the attack was balanced overall, as Jaeckel and junior Tangerine Wiggs each added seven kills. We did a good job distributing the ball, Jaeckel said. The more people we can get good looks, the more the other team has to rethink who they want to stop. Obviously Kelly was unstoppable, and that really came in clutch for us in the end. Jaeckel also did her part and led the teams defensive effort, showing her strength in the back row in the middle of the second set by notching three consecutive digs in one rally. She a team-high seven digs. senior who plays like it, coach Mary Wise said. If she were a basketball player shed be that one that you look at assists, rebounds, scoring, steals shes doing so much for us. Kellys done that for four years. Thats where its so valuable to have two such complete players. Although the sweep marked UFs sixth win in a row, the Gators now enter this week with the goal of eliminating service errors for That emphasis, combined with Floridas gritty play to prevent a fourth set, puts the team just where they want to be heading into the postseason. Its good for us, Wise said. If Auburn hadnt played well in that third set, I dont know how much better we would have gotten from this match. UF Soccer VOLLEYBALLWise
