However, that trend could be reversing, according to some complexes in town. The average price a tenant paid for an all-inclusive four-bedroom apartment went from $580 each month to $420 each month over the last eight years, said Nora Kilroy, Off Campus Life director. A few years ago, the price of renting an apartment in town dropped for two reasons, she said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSamuel B. Gause, 22, a chemistry graduate student, poses with his returned bike on Monday night. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterA UF student recovered his stolen bike Sunday night after coordinating a sting operation with Gainesville Police. Samuel B. Gause, 22, a chemistry graduate student, realized early Sunday after noon that his black IRO Angus road bike wasnt where he left it on Southwest Second Avenue two nights before, but after some Internet searching, he found it for sale on Craigslist. was going to call him, I got a little jittery, Gause said Monday. He set up a meeting with the bicycles supposed owner, not revealing that the bike was actually his. Then, Gause called police. Collin D. Smith, 19, was arrested and charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen property by use of the Internet on Sunday night. He did not return a call requesting comment. Gause said he paid about $700 for the bicycle, and he checked Craigslist in the off-chance whoever stole it was trying to sell it online. He found an ad: A great IRO one-speed bike $200. The listing featured Smiths phone number and three pictures of Gauses bike. He set up a meeting with Smith for 8:30 p.m. at the McDonalds on 1030 E Univer sity Ave., and he brought a friend with him in case he needed backup. He called GPD I didnt know who the guy was, whether he was violent or not, Gause said. It got there, we couldnt see the cops. I probably shouldnt have done it, but I did. Smith, who is 5 feet 6 inches, 140 pounds, was charged with battery and burglary last year, according to the Alachua County Clerk of Court. Gause said he didnt get a good look at Smith because he was trying to appear more interested in the bike than the salesman. After Gause examined the bike for about the parking lot. Smith tried to run away but was caught, according to the arrest report. Gause usually rides his bike two miles from his Creeks Edge condo to campus every day, but on Monday, he didnt. He needs to buy a new lock. Still, hes not complaining. I thought for sure I wasnt getting it back, he said.Bicycle bandit arrested after student sets up sting I had to step away and calm myself down before making the call.Samuel B.

MOLLY VAZQUEZAlligator Contributing WriterHe trained for a 70.3 mile Iron Man triathlon, got shoes and clothes for all types of ter rain and downloaded audio versions of War and Peace and Pride and Prejudice. All thats left is to walk 3,475 miles of American soil. On Jan. 28, UF alumnus Barrett Keene will start walking, stopping in major cities to spread awareness about and raise funds for orphaned and abandoned children. The thing is, we have millions of children can and should help, and this is how we will do it, Keene said. Keenes journey, called Go Walk America, will begin in Miami and continue through Atlanta, Nashville, St. Louis, Kansas City, Kan., Denver, Salt Lake City and Sacramento, ending in San Francisco. While raising awareness for the worlds 145 million orphaned and abandoned children, Keene said he also hopes to provide help. Partnering with The Global Orphan Project, Go Walk America hopes to raise enough funds to buy 25,000 school uniforms to give to orphans and other children who cannot afford them, he said. In some communities in Africa and Haiti, children cant go to school unless they have a uniform. The funds Keene raises, in addition to buying uniforms, will help build sewing factories, which will create jobs, according to Go Walk Americas website. Keene has worked with orphans and abandoned children before. Trips to Panama, Guaence, which, he said, is the most important aspect of helping. Get dirty and go visit, then do something about it, Keene said. To prepare for his journey, Keene walks an average of 10 miles a day. Brooks Running Shoes donated the $2,500 of gear he will need. Along the way, friends will take turns driving the support car that follows him. UF and Cornell University, where Keene is pursuing his doctorate, will track his progress. The impact is big, far more reaching than just having clothes to go to school, said Joy Goodwin, UF doctoral student in agricultural education and communications. Goodwin is the graduate adviser for the Agriculture Communicators and Leaders for Tomorrow club at UF, and she caught wind of Keenes journey through an email from the faculty adviser. The students in the club will walk alongside Keene from Ocala to Lake City. Keene should reach the area around Feb. 26, she said. Anyone in the area is encouraged to join. Barrett kept saying, You know its not about walking across the United States; its about knowing that you can make a differ ence, Goodwin said. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012Courtesy to the AlligatorUF alumnus Barrett Keene visits with orphaned children in Croix-des-Bouquet, Haiti, at one of the 15 orphanages supported by The Global Orphan Project.

UF alumnus to walk across country to raise money for orphans LAST YEARS SURVEY SHOWED AN INCREASE IN HOMELESSNESS. LORI PERRYAlligator Contributing WriterThe Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry Inc. will conduct its annual homeless survey today and Wednesday. Last year, the survey showed homelessness in the county increased by 38 percent to 1,781 people. About 25 percent were younger than 18. Theresa Lowe, director of the on Homelessness, said it is impor tant to get an accurate count of the number of homeless people and their needs in order to increase program development and funding. We will be going out in the people in Alachua County that are homeless so we can get a count, Lowe said. The numbers are then reported to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Florida Department of Children and Families. People are homeless if they live in anything other than permanent housing. Some live in homeless shelters, in motels, with other families, on the streets or in the woods, Lowe said. The 2011 study stated 45.1 per cent of those surveyed had a high school diploma or GED, 19.5 percent percent had a college degree. Arupa Freeman, Gainesville resident, said someone needs to take into account the homeless.

About 600 people attended the event, which was sponsored by the Friendship Association of Chinese Students and Scholars. Some Chinese New Year traditions include the Chinese character fu, which represents good luck and blessings, and eating dinner with family, said Qiushi Li, a philosophy sophomore. Since he couldnt participate in his familys Chinese traditions this year, Li celebrated the New Year his own way. I went to Bento, he said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9ON CAMPUS MATT BOLESAlligator Contributing WriterUFs College of Journalism and Communications announced Thursday that a new masters program will start taking students during Summer B. The Master of Arts degree in mass communication with an emphasis on multimedia journalism is designed to teach graduate students how to work in a new age of communications. We try to get ahead of the curve in many different areas, said Wayne Wanta, journalism department chairman. We teach commuThe journalism school already has 200 students in its 11 graduate programs, according to the college website. The masters programs are each focused on either research or practical experience. This new program is a practical program, Wanta said. This made a lot of sense. Its our philososaid Johanna Cleary, associate professor in the department of telecommunication. News or ganizations expect journalists to be multifaceted with their skills. Cleary and journalism professor Cory Armstrong created the new programs curriculum. The college is also building a convergence newsroom, which is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2012. About 10 to 20 students are expected to start the masters program this summer, Cleary said. They are scheduled to graduate in spring of 2014. Katherine Kallergis, a 19-year-old journalism sophomore, said she likes the idea of the program. I dont think you can say youre a successful journalist by just being able to write, she said. Kallergis, who said she is considering graduate school, said she believes students need to learn how to work for different platforms. Its not an option, she said. Cleary said the college will pay about $20,000 for the program. However, the technology and supplies that money covers will also be used by undergraduate students. The students in the program will also use equipment from the convergence newsroom. much the new program costs, but it will be able to pay for itself in a short amount of time. That time will depend on the number of students who enroll in the program in the next few years, she said. The deadline to apply for the program is Feb. 15.

Rick Scott questioned in October why taxpayers money should go to educate anthropologists when no jobs are available for them. This semester, that money will be used to educate nearly the same amount of anthropology majors at UF as last semester. There are 643 registered anthropology majors this semester. At the beginning of the fall semester, there were 668, and in Spring 2011, there were 655. To have a difference of 12 students [from Spring 2011 to or particularly worrying, said Susan deFrance, interim chair of the department of anthropology. The slight decrease could be attributed to increased major requirements, deFrance said. Students are now required to maintain a 2.5 GPA. They previously needed a 2.0. Overall, enrollment in courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has gone down, so this decline in anthropology is consistent with the college, said Albert Matheny, the associate dean for student affairs. Allysha Winburn, an anthropology graduate student and human osteology teaching associate, said she isnt concerned about the slight drop in anthropology majors. If anything, I think my students are more excited than ever, she said.Anthropology major still attracting pupils SHELBY WEBBAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers have developed a new gene therapy that could be used to treat a form of blindness. The condition, called X-linked retinitis pigmentosa, is passed from mother to son and gradually deteriorates a persons vision. The genetic defect appears early in life, so even though affected children are often born with sight, they progressively lose their vision. To battle the condition, researchers developed a technique that involves replacing a faulty gene in the eye with a working copy that supplies a necessary protein to light-sensitive cells, which enables the eye to function, said study co-author Dr. William Hauswirth, a UF ophthalmology professor. The treatment has a promise to fundamentally change their lives, Hauswirth said. Its hoped that they can restore a significant por tion of their vision and live their life in a much more functional way. While women carry the trait, which affects about 10,000 people nationwide, they arent affected as often as males are, he said. He said less than one percent of the patients are women. UF researchers worked with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania to clone a working copy of the affected gene inside a virus, which served as a vehicle to transport the gene to the eye. The treatment cured dogs that had the disease. The injected genes made their way only to the afflicted area of the eye. Dr. Alfred Lewin, who is also a UF ophthalmology professor and co-author of the study, said learning how to treat the condition could help doctors discover new treatments for common conditions. Were working on the rare diseases that are genetically understood, Lewin said, but if we can develop the technology with this disease, we might be able to come up with treatments for more common diseases.New therapy may treat form of blindness HANA ENGROFFAlligator Contributing WriterStudents walking by the Hub today can learn about where the clothes on their backs and the food on their plates came from. From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., visitors can walk through Monsantos Americas Farmers Mobile Experience, an exhibit explaining todays farming practices and technology. The exhibit is free and takes about 10 minutes to walk through. Charlotte Emerson, director of student development and recruitment for the College of Agricultur al and Life Sciences, said UF didnt pay anything to bring Monsantos exhibit to campus. The exhibit opened Monday and attracted about 400 people within do, a spokeswoman for Monsanto, a company that promotes, develops and educates people about sustainable farming practices. Its very important whenever we come to a college setting that students know how important agriculture is, she said. Todays agriculture struggles to meet the demands of a growing human population, which is predicted to reach 9.6 billion by 2050, she said. Microbiology sophomore Anjali Shrestha, 19, said she learned about sustainable farming at the exhibit. A lot of people on campus dont realize where their food comes from or the importance of what farmers do, she said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Orr UpdateAccording to the Tampa Bay Times, defensive tackle Leon Orr has agreed to deferred prosecution on marijuana-related charges and Parsons Contributing for HoustonRockets rookie forward Chandler Parsons has made an early fourth on the team in rebounds and has already been featured on Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida center Patric Young said the injured ankle that has limited his minutes recently is healthy enough for him to return to the starting lineup Thursday night against Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss. GATORS AGAIN RANKED AMONG NATIONS TOP 15. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff WriterEven before coming to college, most of the Gators tried to build up a tolerance for playing games on short rest. Junior center Patric Young said he once had six AAU games in one day during high school. Sophomore guard Scottie Wilbekins most in a 24-hour period is four. Still, running through a mar athon-like day of summer league doesnt really compare to the gauntlet most Southeastern Conference teams have experienced since the leagues TV deal with ESPN went into effect two years ago. There are per week, which creates scheduling concerns. Its different, because in AAU the games are a little bit shorter, and the defense isnt as good, Young said. You really dont have to play defense in AAU, just get in that zone and sit in the back. UF coach Billy Donovan spoke Monday on the inconsistent SEC scheduling process that has Florida and Ole Miss playing two games in three days multiple times, while other teams like Auburn, Kentucky and LSU escape the regular season without ever having to play on one day of rest. My problem with it is if you want to get more teams in the NCAA tournament and you want to do more with your non-confer ence schedule, our league should not put teams at a disadvantage competitively, Donovan said. The Gators will begin two consecutive weeks of Thursday-Satur day games when they travel to play the Rebels at 7 p.m. on Thursday and then return home Saturday to take on Mississippi State at 1:30 p.m. Next week, Florida plays two home games against South Carolina and Vanderbilt. I heard the argument, Well, its like that in the NCAA tournament. Youve got to play Thursday-Satur day or Friday-Sunday. Great, but so does the other team youre playing against. You know? Donovan said. Thats where weve got to try it work. Young Injury: After being left out of the starting lineup for the Carolina and LSU, the 6-foot-9 Young wanted to clear the air Monday that the tendinitis in his right ankle didnt ruin another one of his streaks. Ive never had a sprained ankle before, Young said. I dont know; thats God watching over me and protecting me from harm. While tendinitis does not qualify as an ankle sprain, the injury has still cut into his playing time recently. After a season-low 13-minute showing against the Gamecocks, Young played 24 minutes Saturday against LSU. He averaged Donovan questions SEC scheduling; Young injury update STAFF REPORTFlorida added to its 2012 class Monday with the commitment of three-star defensive end Alex McCalister. The 6-foot-7, 212-pound end has been told by coaches that he will line up at the Buck linebacker position currently played by Ronald Powell. McCalister is the second Buck candidate to commit in the past week, joining Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. Florida pursued the position heavily after losing four-star end Jordan Jenkins to a Georgia oral commitment on Jan. 9. Out of Clemmons (N.C.) West Forsyth, McCalister is also the fourth recruit from the state of North Carolina to commit to UF. Special teams coach D.J. Durkin was instrumental in recruiting McCalister, as and linebacker Rhaheim Ledbetter. Florida now has seven commitments from defensive linemen. full class is ranked No. 4 nationally by Rivals. com.

However, in order to make a run at the top spot in the SEC, the Gators had to overcome their main problem from last season: losing close games. Florida had nine defeats by single digits during the 2010-11 campaign, includsecond half. We were an NCAA Tournament team last year if you take away the games we just blew, redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones said during the preseason.

I am extremely thankful and honored to have been a part of a great program led by the top coaches in the country, she said in the statement.

They are really speedy, and theyre quick, and they have good shot selection, she said. The starting lineup has not yet been set, and there is still open competition in practice. According to OLeary, their performances Thursday in the Gators exhibition against England will help in determining the starting lineup for the regular season opener against North Carolina on Feb.11.UF looking for help after Hilliers transfer Butler: Seniors must take over this seasonteam. While the Gators have been able to maintain late leads this season, their struggles in tight games continue. Last seasons problem was son has been stumbling out of the gate. (The problems) arent coming in the late-game situations, theyre coming earlier in the game, coach Amanda Butler said. In late-game (scenarios), were putting ourselves back in position to win. First-half offensive woes have crippled the Gators throughout the 2011-12 season, particularly in SEC play. In four league losses, Florida has averaged 20.25 points and 13 Conversely, the Gators have posted average marks of 34 points and 6.3 giveaways before halftime in three SEC victories. Offensively, we just cant give the ball back; our defense is playing as well as it possibly can, Butler said. Youve got to put the ball in the hole and get the reward for playing such tough, stingy defense. Butler notes that duplicating cult, so she seeks other methods of combating Floridas issues in tight contests. We work on special situations where we have the lead and we keeping that lead, senior guard Deana Allen said. utes where were down and we try to catch back up. Its still something that were trying to perfect and get good at. One issue that has plagued Florida throughout this season has been inconsistent production from its senior class. Jones ranks second on the team with 12.6 points per game, and Allen is the Gators second-leading rebounder, pulling down 5.9 boards per contest. has left something to be desired. Center Azania Stewart and guard Lanita Bartley both saw their production dip once SEC play began and have lost their starting roles. Forward Ndidi Madu has replacing Stewart, but her overall performance has been inconsistent as well. The seniors are sitting in a different place than anyone else on the team, Butler said. Those guys have got to take over this season. Meanwhile, other players have void. Junior forward Jennifer George leads the team with 13.5 points and 9.8 rebounds while sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds ranks third in scoring with 9.4 points per contest. But when George struggles like she did in the LSU game and Bonds shoots as poorly as she did against Michigan, Florida needs the reinforcements of a solid senior corps. Reaching the Big Dance is something the Gators aspire to accomplish, but Butler says they need to move forward. The seniors really have got to formance, and demand that from their teammates, Butler said. If they collectively make that decision to just really dig in then youll see some close wins as opposed to some close losses. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. W-HOOPS, from page 14MENsS TENNIS ELI MARGERAlligator WriterWhen Florida defeated Baylor on Sunday, there was plenty of praise to go around. From a comeback win by Frank Carleton to the straight-set clincher by Florent Diep, the No. 8 Gators played hard-fought matches against a fellow top-10 team. victories of the afternoon came from Billy Federhofer, a junior from Miami who played sixth in the Gators singles rotation. While his teammates played competitive matches, Federhofer dismantled his opponent, taking down Baylors Kike Grangeiro 6-0, 6-1. The victory gave Florida a 2-0 lead, For Billy to get off the court so quick, so impressively, took a lot of pressure off of the other guys and was a huge factor in the match, Florida coach Andy Jackson said. In last years match against the Bears, which the Gators won 5-2, Federhofer took the loss against Grangeiro. The Baylor senior beat Federhofer 1-6, 7-6 (3), 1-0 (10-7). Grangeiro, who was ranked as high as No. 88 last year, posed little challenge in this years match. That kid had a very good season for Baylor last year, Jackson said. All the matches could have gone either way except for the match at six. Jackson raved about Federhofer, noting that to get a win from the No. 6 spot was a major testament to the teams depth. Michael Alford and Andrew Butz and Billy were guys that I considered playing at six, he said. All three guys being in contention like that makes us feel pretty good about our depth. For the Gators, having Federhofer, Alford, and Butz available in that sixth slot will be crucial this season. Alford, a sophomore from Tampa, has already winning the consolation bracket at the SEC Indoor Championships in Lexington, Ky. on Jan.15. A Vero Beach native, Butz turned in an impressive fall season, going 12-4 including a win over New Mexicos No. 81 Jadon Phillips. Butz and Federhofer both also played doubles against Baylor. Butz paired with junior Bob van Overbeek to win their match 8-5. Federhofer and senior Nassim Slilam also dispatched their opponents 8-5. will be a major asset to the Gators with the season just beginning and the possibility of slumps and injuries always looming. Looking to continue their strong start, Federhofer and the Gators will host the ITA Kick-Off event this weekend at Linder Stadium. They will face New Mexico on Saturday morning at 10, and will face the winner between Miami and Wake Forest on Sunday.Florida displays depth during weekend victory against BaylorFederhofer Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffCoach Amanda Butler said the teams seniors have to step up after several close losses have put their NCAA Tourney hopes in jeopardy.

However, that trend could be reversing, according to some complexes in town. The average price a tenant paid for an all-inclusive four-bedroom apartment went from $580 each month to $420 each month over the last eight years, said Nora Kilroy, Off Campus Life director. A few years ago, the price of renting an apartment in town dropped for two reasons, she said. The country entered an economic recession, she said, and at the same time, several new complexes were built, so supply increased while demand stayed about the same. collects rent prices from 10 to Local apartment rent may increase next yearSEE GLOVES, PAGE 8 SEE SUSPECTS PAGE 8 SEE APARTMENTS, PAGE 8 Students to receive gloves for Sat. game The Rowdy Reptiles are a great student section, but it is our goal to make the OConnell Center one of the toughest places to play in the nation.University Athletic Association spokeswoman

TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterA UF student recovered his stolen bike Sunday night after coordinating a sting operation with Gainesville Police. Samuel B. Gause, 22, a chemistry graduate student, realized early Sunday after noon that his black IRO Angus road bike wasnt where he left it on Southwest Second Avenue two nights before, but after some Internet searching, he found it for sale on Craigslist. was going to call him, I got a little jittery, Gause said Monday. He set up a meeting with the bicycles supposed owner, not revealing that the bike was actually his. Then, Gause called police. Collin D. Smith, 19, was arrested and charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen property by use of the Internet on Sunday night. He did not return a call requesting comment. Gause said he paid about $700 for the bicycle, and he checked Craigslist in the off-chance whoever stole it was trying to sell it online. He found an ad: A great IRO one-speed bike $200. The listing featured Smiths phone number and three pictures of Gauses bike. He set up a meeting with Smith for 8:30 p.m. at the McDonalds on 1030 E Univer sity Ave., and he brought a friend with him in case he needed backup. He called GPD I didnt know who the guy was, whether he was violent or not, Gause said. It got there, we couldnt see the cops. I probably shouldnt have done it, but I did. Smith, who is 5 feet 6 inches, 140 pounds, was charged with battery and burglary last year, according to the Alachua County Clerk of Court. Gause said he didnt get a good look at Smith because he was trying to appear more interested in the bike than the salesman. After Gause examined the bike for about the parking lot. Smith tried to run away but was caught, according to the arrest report. Gause usually rides his bike two miles from his Creeks Edge condo to campus every day, but on Monday, he didnt. He needs to buy a new lock. Still, hes not complaining. I thought for sure I wasnt getting it back, he said.Bicycle bandit arrested after student sets up sting I had to step away and calm myself down before making the call.Samuel B.

All thats left is to walk 3,475 miles of American soil. On Jan. 28, UF alumnus Barrett Keene will start walking, stopping in major cities to spread awareness about and raise funds for orphaned and abandoned children. The thing is, we have millions of children can and should help, and this is how we will do it, Keene said. Keenes journey, called Go Walk America, will begin in Miami and continue through Atlanta, Nashville, St. Louis, Kansas City, Kan., Denver, Salt Lake City and Sacramento, ending in San Francisco. While raising awareness for the worlds 145 million orphaned and abandoned children, Keene said he also hopes to provide help. Partnering with The Global Orphan Project, Go Walk America hopes to raise enough funds to buy 25,000 school uniforms to give to orphans and other children who cannot afford them, he said. In some communities in Africa and Haiti, children cant go to school unless they have a uniform. The funds Keene raises, in addition to buying uniforms, will help build sewing factories, which will create jobs, according to Go Walk Americas website. Keene has worked with orphans and abandoned children before. Trips to Panama, Guaence, which, he said, is the most important aspect of helping. Get dirty and go visit, then do something about it, Keene said. To prepare for his journey, Keene walks an average of 10 miles a day. Brooks Running Shoes donated the $2,500 of gear he will need. Along the way, friends will take turns driving the support car that follows him. UF and Cornell University, where Keene is pursuing his doctorate, will track his progress. The impact is big, far more reaching than just having clothes to go to school, said Joy Goodwin, UF doctoral student in agricultural education and communications. Goodwin is the graduate adviser for the Agriculture Communicators and Leaders for Tomorrow club at UF, and she caught wind of Keenes journey through an email from the faculty adviser. The students in the club will walk alongside Keene from Ocala to Lake City. Keene should reach the area around Feb. 26, she said. Anyone in the area is encouraged to join. Barrett kept saying, You know its not about walking across the United States; its about knowing that you can make a differ ence, Goodwin said. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012Courtesy to the AlligatorUF alumnus Barrett Keene visits with orphaned children in Croix-des-Bouquet, Haiti, at one of the 15 orphanages supported by The Global Orphan Project.

LORI PERRYAlligator Contributing WriterThe Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry Inc. will conduct its annual homeless survey today and Wednesday. Last year, the survey showed homelessness in the county increased by 38 percent to 1,781 people. About 25 percent were younger than 18. Theresa Lowe, director of the on Homelessness, said it is impor tant to get an accurate count of the number of homeless people and their needs in order to increase program development and funding. We will be going out in the people in Alachua County that are homeless so we can get a count, Lowe said. The numbers are then reported to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Florida Department of Children and Families. People are homeless if they live in anything other than permanent housing. Some live in homeless shelters, in motels, with other families, on the streets or in the woods, Lowe said. The 2011 study stated 45.1 per cent of those surveyed had a high school diploma or GED, 19.5 percent percent had a college degree.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9ON CAMPUS MATT BOLESAlligator Contributing WriterUFs College of Journalism and Communications announced Thursday that a new masters program will start taking students during Summer B. The Master of Arts degree in mass communication with an emphasis on multimedia journalism is designed to teach graduate students how to work in a new age of communications. We try to get ahead of the curve in many different areas, said Wayne Wanta, journalism department chairman. We teach commuThe journalism school already has 200 students in its 11 graduate programs, according to the college website. The masters programs are each focused on either research or practical experience. This new program is a practical program, Wanta said. This made a lot of sense. Its our philososaid Johanna Cleary, associate professor in the department of telecommunication. News or ganizations expect journalists to be multifaceted with their skills. Cleary and journalism professor Cory Armstrong created the new programs curriculum. The college is also building a convergence newsroom, which is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2012. About 10 to 20 students are expected to start the masters program this summer, Cleary said. They are scheduled to graduate in spring of 2014. Katherine Kallergis, a 19-year-old journalism sophomore, said she likes the idea of the program. I dont think you can say youre a successful journalist by just being able to write, she said. Kallergis, who said she is considering graduate school, said she believes students need to learn how to work for different platforms. Its not an option, she said. Cleary said the college will pay about $20,000 for the program. However, the technology and supplies that money covers will also be used by undergraduate students. The students in the program will also use equipment from the convergence newsroom. much the new program costs, but it will be able to pay for itself in a short amount of time. That time will depend on the number of students who enroll in the program in the next few years, she said. The deadline to apply for the program is Feb. 15.

Rick Scott questioned in October why taxpayers money should go to educate anthropologists when no jobs are available for them. This semester, that money will be used to educate nearly the same amount of anthropology majors at UF as last semester. There are 643 registered anthropology majors this semester. At the beginning of the fall semester, there were 668, and in Spring 2011, there were 655. To have a difference of 12 students [from Spring 2011 to or particularly worrying, said Susan deFrance, interim chair of the department of anthropology. The slight decrease could be attributed to increased major requirements, deFrance said. Students are now required to maintain a 2.5 GPA. They previously needed a 2.0. Overall, enrollment in courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has gone down, so this decline in anthropology is consistent with the college, said Albert Matheny, the associate dean for student affairs. Allysha Winburn, an anthropology graduate student and human osteology teaching associate, said she isnt concerned about the slight drop in anthropology majors. If anything, I think my students are more excited than ever, she said.Anthropology major still attracting pupils SHELBY WEBBAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers have developed a new gene therapy that could be used to treat a form of blindness. The condition, called X-linked retinitis pigmentosa, is passed from mother to son and gradually deteriorates a persons vision. The genetic defect appears early in life, so even though affected children are often born with sight, they progressively lose their vision. To battle the condition, researchers developed a technique that involves replacing a faulty gene in the eye with a working copy that supplies a necessary protein to light-sensitive cells, which enables the eye to function, said study co-author Dr. William Hauswirth, a UF ophthalmology professor. The treatment has a promise to fundamentally change their lives, Hauswirth said. Its hoped that they can restore a significant por tion of their vision and live their life in a much more functional way. While women carry the trait, which affects about 10,000 people nationwide, they arent affected as often as males are, he said. He said less than one percent of the patients are women. UF researchers worked with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania to clone a working copy of the affected gene inside a virus, which served as a vehicle to transport the gene to the eye. The treatment cured dogs that had the disease. The injected genes made their way only to the afflicted area of the eye. Dr. Alfred Lewin, who is also a UF ophthalmology professor and co-author of the study, said learning how to treat the condition could help doctors discover new treatments for common conditions. Were working on the rare diseases that are genetically understood, Lewin said, but if we can develop the technology with this disease, we might be able to come up with treatments for more common diseases.New therapy may treat form of blindness HANA ENGROFFAlligator Contributing WriterStudents walking by the Hub today can learn about where the clothes on their backs and the food on their plates came from. From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., visitors can walk through Monsantos Americas Farmers Mobile Experience, an exhibit explaining todays farming practices and technology. The exhibit is free and takes about 10 minutes to walk through.

The exhibit opened Monday and attracted about 400 people within do, a spokeswoman for Monsanto, a company that promotes, develops and educates people about sustainable farming practices. Its very important whenever we come to a college setting that students know how important agriculture is, she said. Todays agriculture struggles to meet the demands of a growing human population, which is predicted to reach 9.6 billion by 2050, she said. Microbiology sophomore Anjali Shrestha, 19, said she learned about sustainable farming at the exhibit. A lot of people on campus dont realize where their food comes from or the importance of what farmers do, she said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Orr UpdateAccording to the Tampa Bay Times, defensive tackle Leon Orr has agreed to deferred prosecution on marijuana-related charges and Parsons Contributing for HoustonRockets rookie forward Chandler Parsons has made an early fourth on the team in rebounds and has already been featured on Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida center Patric Young said the injured ankle that has limited his minutes recently is healthy enough for him to return to the starting lineup Thursday night against Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss. GATORS AGAIN RANKED AMONG NATIONS TOP 15. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff WriterEven before coming to college, most of the Gators tried to build up a tolerance for playing games on short rest. Junior center Patric Young said he once had six AAU games in one day during high school. Sophomore guard Scottie Wilbekins most in a 24-hour period is four. Still, running through a mar athon-like day of summer league doesnt really compare to the gauntlet most Southeastern Conference teams have experienced since the leagues TV deal with ESPN went into effect two years ago. There are per week, which creates scheduling concerns. Its different, because in AAU the games are a little bit shorter, and the defense isnt as good, Young said. You really dont have to play defense in AAU, just get in that zone and sit in the back. UF coach Billy Donovan spoke Monday on the inconsistent SEC scheduling process that has Florida and Ole Miss playing two games in three days multiple times, while other teams like Auburn, Kentucky and LSU escape the regular season without ever having to play on one day of rest. My problem with it is if you want to get more teams in the NCAA tournament and you want to do more with your non-confer ence schedule, our league should not put teams at a disadvantage competitively, Donovan said. The Gators will begin two consecutive weeks of Thursday-Satur day games when they travel to play the Rebels at 7 p.m. on Thursday and then return home Saturday to take on Mississippi State at 1:30 p.m. Next week, Florida plays two home games against South Carolina and Vanderbilt. I heard the argument, Well, its like that in the NCAA tournament. Youve got to play Thursday-Satur day or Friday-Sunday. Great, but so does the other team youre playing against. You know? Donovan said. Thats where weve got to try it work. Young Injury: After being left out of the starting lineup for the Carolina and LSU, the 6-foot-9 Young wanted to clear the air Monday that the tendinitis in his right ankle didnt ruin another one of his streaks. Ive never had a sprained ankle before, Young said. I dont know; thats God watching over me and protecting me from harm. While tendinitis does not qualify as an ankle sprain, the injury has still cut into his playing time recently. After a season-low 13-minute showing against the Gamecocks, Young played 24 minutes Saturday against LSU. He averaged Donovan questions SEC scheduling; Young injury update STAFF REPORTFlorida added to its 2012 class Monday with the commitment of three-star defensive end Alex McCalister. The 6-foot-7, 212-pound end has been told by coaches that he will line up at the Buck linebacker position currently played by Ronald Powell. McCalister is the second Buck candidate to commit in the past week, joining Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. Florida pursued the position heavily after losing four-star end Jordan Jenkins to a Georgia oral commitment on Jan. 9. Out of Clemmons (N.C.) West Forsyth, McCalister is also the fourth recruit from the state of North Carolina to commit to UF. Special teams coach D.J. Durkin was instrumental in recruiting McCalister, as and linebacker Rhaheim Ledbetter. Florida now has seven commitments from defensive linemen. full class is ranked No. 4 nationally by Rivals. com. With several players already enrolled, Flor ida can sign more than the maximum 25 in this class by counting early enrollees toward the 2011 class. Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1Florida picks up 20th commit JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterExperience was supposed to help push the Gators over the top. from last years 20-win squad, Florida was ern Conference crown in school history, at least on paper. However, in order to make a run at the top spot in the SEC, the Gators had to overcome their main problem from last season: losing close games. Florida had nine defeats by single digits during the 2010-11 campaign, includsecond half. We were an NCAA Tournament team last year if you take away the games we just blew, redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones said during the preseason. We cant have an NCAA Tournament bid taken away from us this year.

She wanted to get closer to home, said UF head coach Amanda OLeary. You always want your players to be happy, and thats something she felt like she needed to do, and if that made her happy, then great for her. ment in which she made it clear she was leaving UF on good terms. I am extremely thankful and honored to have been a part of a great program led by the top coaches in the country, she said in the statement. I also am grateful to have had the opportunity to play with some of the best players in the country as well. I wish the team all the best of luck in the world! cruiting class in 2009 that included 24 players. She was the teams fourth-leading scorer as a sophomore last season with 34 goals and six assists and was American Lacrosse Conference Second Team honors. Janine was a fantastic player, OLeary said. I think our program will move on, and we have moved on.

Gabi Wiegand, a junior transfer from Richmond, is another said all of the players have the physical and technical skills to have an immediate impact. They are really speedy, and theyre quick, and they have good shot selection, she said. The starting lineup has not yet been set, and there is still open competition in practice. According to OLeary, their performances Thursday in the Gators exhibition against England will help in determining the starting lineup for the regular season opener against North Carolina on Feb.11.UF looking for help after Hilliers transfer Butler: Seniors must take over this seasonteam. While the Gators have been able to maintain late leads this season, their struggles in tight games continue. Last seasons problem was son has been stumbling out of the gate. (The problems) arent coming in the late-game situations, theyre coming earlier in the game, coach Amanda Butler said. In late-game (scenarios), were putting our selves back in position to win. First-half offensive woes have crippled the Gators throughout the 2011-12 season, particularly in SEC play. In four league losses, Florida has averaged 20.25 points and 13 Conversely, the Gators have posted average marks of 34 points and 6.3 giveaways before halftime in three SEC victories. Offensively, we just cant give the ball back; our defense is playing as well as it possibly can, Butler said. Youve got to put the ball in the hole and get the reward for playing such tough, stingy defense. Butler notes that duplicating cult, so she seeks other methods of combating Floridas issues in tight contests. We work on special situations where we have the lead and we keeping that lead, senior guard Deana Allen said. utes where were down and we try to catch back up. Its still some thing that were trying to perfect and get good at. One issue that has plagued Florida throughout this season has been inconsistent production from its senior class. Jones ranks second on the team with 12.6 points per game, and Allen is the Gators second-lead ing rebounder, pulling down 5.9 boards per contest. has left something to be desired. Center Azania Stewart and guard Lanita Bartley both saw their production dip once SEC play began and have lost their starting roles. Forward Ndidi Madu has replacing Stewart, but her overall performance has been inconsistent as well. The seniors are sitting in a different place than anyone else on the team, Butler said. Those guys have got to take over this season. Meanwhile, other players have void. Junior forward Jennifer George leads the team with 13.5 points and 9.8 rebounds while sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds ranks third in scoring with 9.4 points per contest. But when George struggles like she did in the LSU game and Bonds shoots as poorly as she did against Michigan, Florida needs the reinforcements of a solid senior corps. Reaching the Big Dance is something the Gators aspire to accom plish, but Butler says they need to move forward. The seniors really have got to formance, and demand that from their teammates, Butler said. If they collectively make that decision to just really dig in then youll see some close wins as opposed to some close losses. Contact Joe Morgan at joemor gan@alligator.org. W-HOOPS, from page 14MENS TENNIS ELI MARGERAlligator WriterWhen Florida defeated Baylor on Sunday, there was plenty of praise to go around. From a comeback win by Frank Carleton to the straight-set clincher by Florent Diep, the No. 8 Gators played hard-fought matches against a fellow top-10 team. victories of the afternoon came from Billy Federhofer, a junior from Miami who played sixth in the Gators singles rotation. While his teammates played competitive matches, Federhofer dismantled his opponent, taking down Baylors Kike Grangeiro 6-0, 6-1. The victory gave Florida a 2-0 lead, For Billy to get off the court so quick, so impressively, took a lot of pressure off of the other guys and was a huge factor in the match, Florida coach Andy Jackson said. In last years match against the Bears, which the Gators won 5-2, Federhofer took the loss against Grangeiro. The Baylor senior beat Federhofer 1-6, 7-6 (3), 1-0 (10-7). Grangeiro, who was ranked as high as No. 88 last year, posed little challenge in this years match. That kid had a very good season for Baylor last year, Jackson said. All the matches could have gone either way except for the match at six. Jackson raved about Federhofer, noting that to get a win from the No. 6 spot was a major testament to the teams depth. Michael Alford and Andrew Butz and Billy were guys that I considered playing at six, he said. All three guys being in contention like that makes us feel pretty good about our depth. For the Gators, having Federhofer, Alford, and Butz available in that sixth slot will be crucial this season. Alford, a sophomore from Tampa, has already winning the consolation bracket at the SEC Indoor Championships in Lexington, Ky. on Jan.15. A Vero Beach native, Butz turned in an impressive fall season, going 12-4 including a win over New Mexicos No. 81 Jadon Phillips. Butz and Federhofer both also played doubles against Baylor. Butz paired with junior Bob van Overbeek to win their match 8-5. Federhofer and senior Nassim Slilam also dispatched their opponents 8-5. will be a major asset to the Gators with the season just beginning and the possibility of slumps and injuries always looming. Looking to continue their strong start, Federhofer and the Gators will host the ITA Kick-Off event this weekend at Linder Stadium. They will face New Mexico on Saturday morning at 10, and will face the winner between Miami and Wake Forest on Sunday.Florida displays depth during weekend victory against BaylorFederhofer Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffCoach Amanda Butler said the teams seniors have to step up after several close losses have put their NCAA Tourney hopes in jeopardy.
