The chemistry department and UFs Environmental Health and Safety division are working diligently to ensure students safety in labs and In October, an explosion caused by a set of chemical reactions surprised the department, said Daniel Talham, chair of the chemistry department.

This could create problems for employment if employers fear the legal consequences for requiring applicants to have a high school diploma, even when the job requires that aptitude. ing and describing the duties of each job and justifying why such a position requires a high school diploma. If they fail to meet the standards set by the EEOC, they could face expensive and burdensome lawsuits. Some have also argued that, for many, there might be less of an incentive to obtain a high school degree if more employers are debatable, but it should make the commission re-evaluate possible unintended consequences of this interpretation. But the consequences of the commissions opinion are nowhere near as bad as the philosophical principles which it violates. First, the commissions interpretation is an attack on individual achievement. It does not see people in terms of their distinguished merits, but instead views people as part of collective groups, all of which deserve equal opportunity, regardless of While the EEOC may argue that it is not trying to eliminate standards of employment, many employers might lower their economy. Second, the fact that the commission is dictating the sort of people that a business owner can hire is an anathema to the entire idea of economic liberty. The statements by the commission make it appear as though it, as an agent of the state, is the true owner of the businesses. However, in its gracious wisdom, it allows private individuals to control the day-to-day operations as long as they conform to the governments rules, that is. While it may sound cruel, people should be allowed to hire whomever they want without fear of consequences. Those who based on arbitrary considerations such as race or gender, will be run out of business by competitors who employ fair hiring practices. But the laws of economics do not concern those at the EEOC or members of many bureaucracies, for that matter. Instead, the freedom to hire or not hire is trumped by arbitrary notions of fairness. Homesickness shows ones strengthWe have made it to the second week of the spring semester. For many of us, the feeling is bittersweet. The second week is the time when college habits reassert themselves fully: Weve gotten our schedules and our books, and winter break at home with family seems only a distant memory. This college life is a strange thing. We have two homes: one with family and one here in Gainesville. We have two places to call our own, yet paradoxically, we truly have no place. It is enough to make one utter the maligned phrase, I am homesick. Many experienced this emotion as they pulled out of their familys driveways in cars laden with luggage for the trip home. Few admit it; however, who among us does not feel it when we drive through the storied landmarks of adolescence? There is a distinguishable pull a voice in ones head that asks, What are you doing? Your place is with your family, not some school a world apart. We think these things, but we do not vocalize them to our peers. To do so would be to admit immaturity and weakness, or so we think. We live in the most mobile society ever experienced by mankind. We have cars that can take us hundreds globe. When we graduate, we expect to take jobs around the country to promote our careers. We have learned that the path to success is one of constant motion. We live in a world where sentimentality is nothing but an accursed weakness. tors those medieval paupers who never traveled more than 30 miles from their homes because they lived in poverty, never dreaming of what we have accomplished. We have skyscrapers that would make the Tower of Babel look like a crude shanty. We have machines that allow us to craft technologies unthinkable 100 years ago. We have amassed great wealth because we are not afraid to move, not afraid to sunder our roots in search of richer pastures. And yet, as we leave our family driveways to pursue our education, that voice persists, This is your place. Place its a quaint word, isnt it? It is a word forgotten in our constant struggle for achievement. Our place, we think, is irrelevant, a means to an end. Place is for the weak and the complacent. Those who cry Homesick! are surely just those who were not mature or strong enough, the pitiful souls who could not embrace what mankind is capable of accomplishing if only we could forget such existential limits. Or so we think. However, the voice persists. No matter how excited one is to return to college, there is always a feeling that what he or she is doing is unnatural. As the modern age crept upon us, did we sell our souls for greater wealth and opportunity? I would not assert that leaving home for college is immoral. However, that feeling of homesickness is not a sign of weakness either. Rather, it is a sign of our strength and of our innate love for the family and landmarks we have come to know over time. Even as modern students, we still hold came before us, who knew that place and limits were important features of any life. Do not hasten to leave behind these roots, for they will prove more permanent than any college transcript or future career. Most important of all, do not be ashamed of homesickness, but embrace it. It is proof of your humanity in an age of mechanization and transience. Luke Bailey is a history junior at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays. Luke Baileyopinions@alligator.org

JON SILMANAlligator Staff WriterAt 10 years old, his love for politics developed while ironing clothes for school and watching presidential candidates on Good Morning America, per dads orders. Even though he wanted to watch cartoons, it stuck. Bill Clinton inspired me. He said, we need change. I was just awestruck. Armando Grundy is one of three candidates running for Gainesville City Commission, District 1. Hes half black and half Hispanic. Hes 32. His parents divorced when he was 4, and he grew up in Harrisburg, Penn. with a mom who worked two jobs one at the U.S. Department of Treasury, and one at Sears to pay for Christmas presents. It was a pain that didnt go away for many years, Grundy said about the divorce. It destroyed me as a kid. At age 10, he moved to Jacksonville to be with his dad, who he said taught him to be a man by making him do chores and forcing him to stay abreast of current events. Dad couldnt pay for college, so Grundy joined the Army to get the G.I. bill and pay for school. He served his country from 97 to 05. He never went to war. He enrolled in St. Leo Univer sity and is one semester away from a bachelors in political science and international studies, with a minor in urban planning and leadership, he said. He said he might go to law school one day, but for now, hes focused on the race. What I do understand is that in order to lead others, you need to be a servant, he said. Ive been a ser vant. Ive served my country. He said this kind of experience, like his upbringing, prepared him for a life of public service. He lives in east Gainesville and doesnt own a car. I have three modes of transpor tation, he said, Nike, Reebok and RTS. As for his campaign, the No. 1 issue is jobs, jobs, jobs. He wants to make it easier for businesses to open in east Gainesville by streamlining the permit process. He calls the biomass plant a non-issue because the ground has already been laid for the project, and he thinks its hijacking the real issues of the campaign. Folks in District 1 are unemployed or underemployed, he said. Thats why its at the top of my platform. He said hes been advocating for District 1 since when he went to a city council meeting and observed current commissioner Scherwin Henry in action. He was so impressed with the man that in 2008 he asked Henry to mentor him. Henry agreed. Ive been the only candidate consistently involved in the process, he said, citing his work to improve access by RTS to east Gainesville residents. He said he was instrumental in extending the route times for east Gainesville from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Transportation planning is my specialty, he said. In addition, he wants to reduce Gainesville crime by promoting crime-watch organizations and supporting after school programs. Previously, Grundy lost an election for District 3 in 2008. Im running because Im the only candidate in this race who has been working to better the district, he said. I understand it will be District 1 to elect me, but Ill be a change that represents all people.

See The Rally, page 16. Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffSenior center Azania Stewart (13), who is averaging only 2.8 points during Southeastern Conference play, has been supplanted by forward Ndidi Madu as a starter. JOE MORGAN Amanda Butler admits she is an emotional coach. She says her feelings are a driving force behind many of her decisions, including her tinkering with lineups early in Southeastern Conference play. However, Butler notes her starters are never set in stone, and they are bound to change multiple times. Our season has many seasons in it, Butler said. There are a lot of different trends that present themselves where players are maybe other. Senior center Azania Stewart, who has struggled of late, is a perfect example. She is averaging just 2.8 points per contest in fort in a 49-44 loss to South Carolina. As a result, Butler has started redshirt senior forward Ndidi Madu in place of Stewart in the last two games. liable No. 2 option in the post next to junior for ward Jennifer George. Madu scored 11 points in a loss to Kentucky on Jan. 1 and nine during Sundays win against LSU. Shes just so athletic and her mid-range jumper is just perfect nobody can block it, Stewart said of Madu. Despite losing her starting spot for the time being, Stewart is comfortable in her current role as a reserve. She has experience coming off the bench both at Florida and while playing overseas for her native Great Britain during the summer. defensively-wise and offensively, Im kind of struggling right now, Stewart said. Im not that type of person to get mad. Its coachs decision. Another change in the starting lineup has come at the guard position with Deana Allen taking the place of fellow senior Lanita Bartley. Redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones and Stewart both described Allen as a high-energy player, making her ideal to get the ball rolling in the early going. However, Allen sees things a bit differently. I kind of like coming off the bench better, Allen said. But if [Butler] needs me to start the game and give us that spark that I give us when I come off the bench, then Ill do it. Allen said that starting makes her nervous, but that her preference for the bench stems from gaining a grasp of the games tempo before jumping right in. When Im coming off the bench, I get to observe stuff more, Allen said. I get to see how the defense is playing and what the defense is giving us. Butler said the recent insertions of Madu and Allen into the starting lineup come from a need to aid the transition game in the early going. Improved transition play will lead to Butler juggling starting lineupStewart sitting, Madu moving into larger roleRECRUITING KELLY PRICEAlligator Writer end, Jeremi Powell is completely full. He said he stuffed his face with food from Chilis, salmon and everything they were just deliver ing everything. I was full before I even got my food. Powell, a four-star linebacker from Pinellas Park, said he had so much freakin fun on his visit. I just cant wait to be up there so it can be like that all the time and just play football, and not have to worry about everything Im doing down here (in Pinellas Park), he said. After a night in midtown and driving around Gainesville with his hosts, linebacker Michael Taylor and running back Mack Brown, Powell returned home on a collegeexperience high. Having to show up for work this week in the kitchen of a Seminole retirement home wasnt nearly as fun as Gainesville, Powell said. Its real cool; being up there made me realize how bad I wanted to be there, knowing it would be easier for me. And then to come back home (to) high school, exams, drama oh man, it sucked. Although his commitment status was already solid, Powell said the visit made him realize how strong it was. Nothing in the world can change my mind, he said. Top recruits in town: This weekend, Florida will host two more undecided athletes: Tracy Howard, After suggesting Florida was out of the picture once former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis left, Diggs has seemingly reconsidered. On Monday, Florida coaches, including head coach Will Muschamp, made the trek to the Diggs home in Olney, Md. The meeting is one of the last scheduled for Diggs with any coaches, and is notable because it is the new offensive coordinator Brent Pease. Diggs and his mother have visited Florida once each, separately. Diggs also visited Auburn last weekend and Cal in December. Howard, though, has two visits and decision candidates left: LSU and Florida. The Miramar corner back raised a stir in December when he did the Gator Chomp for some Florida coaches that came to see him play in a state title game. However, he remains steadfast that his decision will be made on Feb. 1, National Signing Day. With great cover skills and speed, the Miramar cornerback is a candidate for immediate playing time in the Gators secondary. Another visit: Vincent Valentine, a defensive tackle from Edwardslast weekend. Valentine has narrowed his recruitment down to three schools: Illinois, Florida and Nebraska. Powell said that although he didnt interact much with Valentine, every time I did see him, I asked him if he was a Gator yet. Powell also said Valentine told him his mom wasnt a huge fan of Florida due to the 900-mile distance between Gainesville and their Illinois home. Nebraska has been the longtime favorite of the three-star athlete, and he has said he almost commitLincoln last month. But the Gators are still in the running after making a huge push for Valentine after the Notebook: Powell visits; Diggs, Howard coming this weekendSEE W-HOOPS, PAGE 16 SEE RECRUIT, PAGE 16Diggs Im kind of struggling right now.

He also moved his commitment date from Tuesday to Jan. 23, after his rescheduled visit to Gainesville. cruiting process with McCalister after four-star defensive end Jordan Jenkins orally committed to Georgia on Jan. 9. McCalister would likely complement Ronald Powell at the Buck position if he McCalister is one of three Buck prospects on campus this weekend, along Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2012 THE RALLY Matt: After a dismal season, are in emotional purgatory. But the dread and angst inspired by the worst year of Gator football in decades has started to give way to some new feelings excitement, anticipation and hope. National Signing Day is approaching fast, and for college football followers everywhere, that means the next A new crop of players, a sense of rebirth; its an exhilarating time to be a fan. But not so fast. Schools like Alabama, LSU and Oklahoma is right there with the nations fourth-ranked class, but theres a distinct difference. Those teams are already good, and the Gators arent. So, this year, temper your expectations for greatness and remain stoic, as hard as that might be. Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin are not walking through that door. The Will Muschamp turnaround train is in motion, but its nowhere near the station yet. Bryan: The Boom Train may not be in the station just yet, but that doesnt mean its too far down the tracks either. Dont let Uncle Matts grumbles get you down. There is plenty to get excited about in the recruiting class Muschamp and friends are Are Tebow or Harvin walking through the door? No, but an elite class of defensive players is, and two of the nations most explosive wide receivers in Nelson Agholor and Stefon Diggs could be as well. instead of stockpiles of wayward fourand dumped on the Gainesville Police Department in his waning Muschamp is paying attention to needs more than rankings, and he is making the kind of team he has said he can win with: dominant on defense and more physical and tough on offense. The result will be a group with more contributors and fewer milk jug pictures in two years. Matt: While Muschamp has certainly made headway on the arrest front, theres not much evidence that he has the tools in place either currently on the roster, or en route to play the style he wants. Diggs and Agholor coming to Gainesville, theres also the possibility that those recruits dont work out. Remember, Deonte Thompson was a four-star recruit and the nations No. 8 wide receiver in 2007. How did that work out again? clearly more than a receiver or two away from reaching even mediocre status. The offensive line is in tatters, the quarterback situation is sketchy at best and there isnt a running back that can be trusted after Mr. Do Everything, Chris Rainey, graduated. (Ed. Wait, Rainey actually graduated?) Physical? Tough? Not next year, my friend. Bryan: This class isnt going to come in and win a national championship in 2012 with the current surroundings. In other news, Will Muschamp does not care for fumbles and Kerwin Bell was uncoordinator. But that doesnt mean that excitement should be entirely ruled out. D.J. Humphries and Jessamen Dunker can come in and immediately make the offensive line better at tackle and guard, respectively, and wide receiver Latroy Pittman and tight end Colin Thompson are more physical than Rankings are overrated, but you cant completely rule out elite talent because others have fallen before it. Besides running back where the Gators are slated to clean up in 2013 the offense will be exponentially more equipped than it was in 2011. People will want to see results this fall, and they will, but at the same time, they have to ter one year and will be in Gainesville to build something special over the next three or four seasons. Matt: Exponentially more equipped? What is that? A dick joke? ida will be looking to other avenues to compensate for where they fall short. The Gators are going to be terrible on offense, even if D.J. Humphries doesnt prove to be the next Xavier Nixon. Theyre going to have to rely on the defense, where you say coming talents like Marcus Maye, Brian Poole and Jonathan Bullard. But apart from Bullard, Muschamp and need: girth up front. The Gators got pushed around on the line of scrimmage against good teams this season, and that will continue next season, even if they get some more talent on the line. The difference between an 18-year-old freshman and a 22-year-old senior is enormous. But if theres one thing we can agree on, its patience. Point being: Temper those expectations for a quick turnaround, because its not coming. Bryan: Oh, Wattsy, always good for a meTheres no doubt the defensive line has to get better to complement whats behind it. Ever heard of Damien Jacobs? Hes the quick of age). Jacobs is a junior college transfer who will be expected to contribute in a big way immediately. inside where hes more comfortable. DefenMann are in the class, as well as 295-pound star defensive end Darius Hamilton could quickly be turning more and more toward If the offense is even vaguely mediocre in 2012, this defense will easily be good enough to make the season worth watching. Get excited. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org and Bryan Holt at bholt@alligator.org. Should fans be excited by UFs incoming recruiting class? Bryan Holttwitter: @bryan_holt Matt Wattstwitter: @wattmatts UF still in running for DE More changes expected this yearincreased layup attempts, which could provide Deana and Ndidi are two of our more offensive-minded players, Butler said. Both of them give us a little more speed right from the beginning. Jones does not see Butler ever committing to one starting lineup. Its just not Butlers style. You really dont know whos going to start, Jones said. Its something shell tell us on game day. Butler said that the thinking process in remitting that she will absolutely make some more changes before seasons end. After starting SEC play 2-3, with each game decided by six points or less, the Gators are showing they will do whatever it takes to make sure they have the right people on Shes just seeing whats going to work, Allen said. That way, she can put is going to grind it out for her towards the end of the game. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org. W-HOOPS, from page 14Butler RECRUIT, from page 14
