Staff Writer
Doug Waechter .would like
to stay with the Devil Rays and
pitch in his hometown of St.
Petersburg.
But for the most part
Waechter just wants the chance
to play baseball again.
"I'm testing the market right
now," Waechter said. "I'm doing
whatever it takes to get back on
track and into the major
leagues."
Waechter, 25, was released
from the Devil Rays's roster on
Nov. 22 after he underwent
surgery on a torn labrum in his
pitching shoulder in October.
Despite the dual hardships
of being released from the Rays,
and the pain caused by his injury,
Waechter is fast-tracking the
healing process and working out
at.the Devil Rays' training facili-
Iy
-"This- definitely isn't a
process I wanted to go through,"
*Waechter said, "but I'm feeling a
lot better and I'm going to be fin-
ished [rehabilitating] ahead of.
schedule."
,,,Waechter said he can feel
the difference between the work-
outs in the beginning of the week
and the sessions at the end.
SThe earlier workouts are
more strenuous, he said. "Later
,on in the week my shoulder feels


stronger when I'm working out."
Waechter has no doubts
about returning to the pitchers
mound he just is not sure of
what uniform he will be wear-
ing.

Having strength back in his
injured arm is "remarkable,"
Waechter said and is. working
fervently on returning to the
game.
"I'm hoping to stay in St.
Petersburg but I have to make
the right choice for my family
too," Waechter said.
1 rn stai ing open It all pos-
sibilities right no\ "
Those possibilities include
returning to the Triple-A minor


league.
Waechter pitched for both
the major league Devil Rays and
minor league Durham Bulls last
season.
Waechter was become a
hometown, sensation in St.
Petersburg after being drafted in
the third round in 1999, coming
directly from Northeast high
school, and then becoming a Ray
in 2003.
The record for his first sea-
son was 14 in 25 with 5.62 ERA
in 60 major league games with
Waechter having 54 starting
appearances.
His record slipped during
the 2006 season with a 1 in 4
record and a 6.62 ERA in 11
appearances with 10 starts.
The drop in performance is
largely attributed to the injury in
his shoulder which was not dis-
covered until October when he
saw a doctor after saying it felt
like he had a "dead arm" when
pitching.
Waechter said the best of his
talent remains to be seen and he

will use any oulet available to
showcase his abilities.
"I'll go wherever I ha% e to."
Waechter said. "Looking at as
many options as possible is a
smart business decision."
Waeehter said r here' er he
ends up he'll be ready to pitch
and he will be "stronger than
before." -

University of South Florida football players Matt Grothe (right) and Ean Randolph (left) each claimed BIG
EAST conference specialty awards. Grothe earned BIG EAST Rookie of the Year and Randolph received
BIG EAST Special Teams Player of the Year, respectively.


TAMPA, Fla. (December 6,
2006) -- University of South
Florida football players Matt
Grothe (BIG EAST Rookie of
the Year).and Ean Randolph
(BIG EAST Special Teams
Player of the Year) claimed con-
ference specialty awards and
three players were named All-
BIG EAST First Team, the
league office announced
Wednesday.
Senior linebacker Stephen
Nicholas, junior cornerback Trae
Williams and Randolph (kick
returner/punt returned) each
earned spots on the league's first
team roster. The Bulls did not
have a player named to the sec-
ond team squad.
Grothe's record-setting
freshman campaign caught the
eye of the head coaches in the
league and across the country. A


Lakeland, Fla. native, he ranks
as the nation's top freshman in
total offense (258.5). Grothe
completed 196-of-307 passes for
2,495 yards and' 14 touchdowns.
In addition, he rushed for 607
yards and nine scores.
Randolph played a key role
in the team's success this season,
both in the return game and as a
wide receiver. He was tops in
the conference in punt return
average (14.7) this season by
almost two yards. Randolph
returned 22 punts for 323 yards
and one touchdown. The Bulls'
senior also ranks sixth nationally
in punt returns.
Nicholas is second on the
roster this season with 96 tack-
les, which includes 12 tackles-
for-loss and five sacks. His 320
career tackles rank him second
on USF's all-time list and his


50.5 tackles-for-loss are tops in
the record book. He also owns a
pair of interceptions in 2006.
Williams is tops in the BIG
EAST and tied for sixth in the
nation with seven interceptions
*(0.58 per game) this season,
which matches USF's single-sea-
son record as well. His 10 career
picks rank him second on the
career list. He has also con-
tributed 49 tackles, nine pass
break ups and a blocked kick.
The selections of Nicholas,
Randolph and Williams marks
the first time in program history
the Bulls have had more than
one player named to the first
team' in the same season.
Running back Andre Hall was
the squad's lone BIG EAST first
teamer in 2005.

NASA telescope sees black hole



"munch" on a star


~I -m -D


This artist's concept shows a supermassive black hole at the center of a remote galaxy digesting the
remnants of a star. NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer had a "ringside" seat for this feeding frenzy, using
its ultraviolet eyes to study the process from beginning to end.
The area around the black-hole appears warped because the gravity of the black hole acts like a lens,


twisting and distorting light.

A giant black hole has been
caught red-handed dipping into a
cosmic cookie jar of stars by
NASA's Galaxy Evolution
Explorer.
This is the first time
astronomers have seen the whole
process of a black hole eating a
star, from its first to nearly final
bites.
"This type of event is very
rare, so we are lucky to study the
entire process from beginning to
end," said Dr. Suvi Gezari of the
California Institute of
Technology, Pasadena, Calif.
Gezari is lead author of a
new paper appearing in the Dec.
10 issue of Astrophysical Journal
Letters.
For perhaps thousands of
years, the black hole rested qui-
etly deep. inside an unnamed
elliptical gjla \.
But then a star ventured a
little too close to the sleeping
Black hole and was torn to shreds
.by the force of its gravity.':ci i .,


Part of the shredded star
swirled around the black hole,
then began to plunge into it, trig-
gering a 'bright ultraviolet flare
that the Galaxy Evolution
Explorer was able to detect.
Today, the space-based tele-
scope continues to periodically
watch this ultraviolet light fade
as the black hole finishes the
remaining bits of its stellar meal.
The observations will ulti-
mately provide a better under-
standing of how black holes
evolve with their host galaxies.
"This will help us greatly in
weighing black holes in the uni-
verse, and in understanding how
they feed and grow in their host
galaxies as the -universe
evolves," said Dr. Christopher
SMartin of Caltech, a co-author of
the paper and the principal
investigator for the Galaxy
Evolution Explorer.
In the early 1990s, three
other resting, or dormant, black
hi;holes !'wee:r.suspected- of,!having


eaten stars when the joint
German-American-British
R?ntgen X-ray satellite picked
up X-ray flares from their host
galaxies.
Astronomers had to wait
until a decade later for NASA's
Chandra X-ray Observatory and
the European Space Agency's
XMM-Newton X-ray observato-
ry to confirm those findings,
showing that the black holes' X-
rays had faded dramatically -- a
sign that stars were swallowed.
Now, Gezari and her col-
leagues have, for the first time,
watched a similar feeding,frenzy
unfold, as it happens, through
the ultraviolet eyes of the Galaxy
:Evolution Explorer.:
They used the telescope's
detectors to catch an ultraviolet
flare from a distant galaxy, then
watched the flare diminish over
time, as the galaxy's central
:black hole consumed the star,
Additional data from


Hawaii Telescope in Hawaii and
the Keck Telescope, also in
Hawaii, helped the team chroni-
cle the event in multiple wave-
lengths over two years.
Black holes are heaps of
concentrated matter whose grav-
ity is so strong that even light
cannot escape.
Supermassive black holes
are believed to reside at the
cores of every galaxy, though
some are thought to be more
active than others.
Active black holes drag sur-
rounding material into them,
heating it up and causing it to
glow.
Dormant black holes, like
the one in our Milky Way
galaxy, hardly make a peep, so
they are difficult to study.
That's why astronomers get
excited when an unsuspecting
star wanders too close to a dor-
mant black hole, an event
thought to happen about once
every 10,000 years in a typical
galaxy.
S A star will flatten and
stretch apart when a nearby
black hole's gravity overcomes
its own self-gravity.
The same phenomenon hap-
pens on Earth every day, as the
moon's gravity tugs on our
world, causing the oceans to rise
and fall.
Once a star has been dis-
rupted, a portion of its gaseous
bodyiwill then be pulled into the
black hole andsheated up to tem-
,peratures that emit X-rays and
ultraviolet light.
;' "The star just couldn't hold
itself together." said Gezari,
adding, "Now that we know we
'can observe these events with
,ultraviolet light, we've got a new
tool for finding more."
-'y' The newfound feeding
,black hole is thought to be tens
of millions times as massive as
-qor,sun. It. host galaxy is locat-
,edi4 billion light-years away in
'the Bootes constellation.

SUCF researcher's 3o digital storage

system could hold a library on one disc


By Zenaida Gonzalez
Kotala
UCF

Imagine taking the entire
collection of historical docu-
ments at the Smithsonian
National Air and Space Museum
and storing it on a single DVD.
University of Central
Florida Chemistry Professor
Kevin D. Belfield and his team
have 'cracked a puzzle that
stumped scientists for more than
a dozen years.
They have developed a new
technology that will allow users
to record and store massive
amounts of data -- the museum's
entire collection or as many as.
500 movies, for example -- onto
a single disc or, perhaps, a small
cube. ,
Belfield's Two-Photon 3-D
Optical Data Storage system
inakes this possible.'
"For a while, -the communi-
ty has been able to record data in
photochromic materials in sever-
al layers," Belfield said. "The
problem was that io one could
figure out how to read out the
data without destroying it. But'
we cracked it."


Think of it this way.,
Television viewers can tape a
show on a,VHS .tape. They can
use the tape several times.
But each time the same seg-
ment of the tape is used, the
quality diminishes as the tape
wears out. Eventually, the data is
lost.T
The same is true of record-
able DVDs.
Belfield's team figured out a
way to use lasers to compact
large amounts of information
onto a DVD while maintaining
excellent quality.
The information is stored
permanently without the possi-
bility of damage.
The process involves'shoot-
ing two different wavelengths of-
light onto the recording surface.
The use of two lasers creates a
very specific image that is sharp-
er than what current techniques
can render.
Depending on the 'color
(wavelength) of the light, ififor-
mation is written onto a disk.
The information is highly.
compacted, so the disk isn't
much thicker. It's like a typical
DVD.

Missing boaters found dead

boating incidents, none of whom
were wearing life jackets.
Florida Fish and 'Wildlife
Conservation Commission'
(FWC) officials have urged
boaters repeatedly to wear
approved personal flotation
devices.
Gregory K. Craine, 52,
Groveland, was found, at 8 a.m.
Wednesday in the 26.2-4cre
Sunset Lake in Mascott.
He had been missing since
4:25 p.m. Tuesday when the boat
he was on sank.
Also on Wednesday,
searchers found the body of a
man missing in a Seminole
County lake.
FWC officers, with assis-
tance from Lake County
Sheriff's Office dive team mem-
bers, had been searching for
Craine since 'being called
Tuesday afternoon about a boat
sinking.
He and Anthony Williams,
also of Groveland, were fishing
when one of them lost his bal-
ance, causing the boat to roll
over'to one side and sink.
Neither man could swim but
Williams was wearing a life
jacket and made it safely to
shore.
Lake County Sheriff's


Office dive team members found,
Craine within 20 feet of his sub-
merged 12-foot johnboat.
"This is the third fatality
involving individuals not wear-
ing life jackets in Lake County
within themionth," said FWC Lt.
David Adams. "We urge every-
one tp wear a personal floatation
device whether they can swim or
not."
On Nov. 12, two
Summerfield children drowned
in Lake Yale during a family out-
ing.
FWC Officer Kat Kelley
emphasized the importance of
wearing, a life jacket with fatal
boating accidents increasing to a
10-year high in 2005.
"Both of these incidents
involved small vessels on inland
lakes," Kelley said.
"Statistically, last year 79
percent of fatal accidents involv-
ing. fall-overboards occurred
aboard 'vessels 17-feet-long or
less.


Additionally, 69 percent of
these accidents occurred on
calm, inland waters such as
lakes, ponds and rivers."
"Often, a bad decision
leads to a cascade of events that
can impact people's lives forev-
er," Kelley said.
"We want people to enjoy
Florida's waters safely."

GAINESVILLE Neonatal
intensive care units designed with
single-family rooms not only
increase patient privacy but also
boost staff satisfaction and reduce
stress, according to a University of
Florida study.
The study explored the implica-
tions of the single-family room
design when, compared with open-
bay, double-occupancy' and combi-
nation configurations at 11 hospitals
nationwide,
The single-family room design
has separate rooms for each infant,
while the open-bay unit has one
large room with all the infant sta-
tions side-by-side.
Typically, staff working in an
open-bay unit believe their jobs will
be more difficult and they will spend
less time with patients if their unit is
redesigned as a single-family room
unit, said Debra Harris, UF interior
design assistant professor who was
principal investigator for the study.
This is because the open-bay
upit allows the staff to see all
patients and to have ongoing contact
with other staff in the unit.

"However, once the unit
switched to the single-family room,
we found the opposite to be true..
Staff noticed the obvious benefits of
the private rooms for the patient and
family," Harris said.
."At the same time, the staff
were able to rely on technology to
assist them in keeping abreast of
their patients' health. Staff reported
lower stress and higher satisfaction
in the single-family room units."
The study revealed many bene-
fits to the single-family room design,
but surprisingly, found a relatively
low increase in the cost to construct
a new unit at an existing or new hos-
pital.
"There was a mere 3 percent
increase in the first construction
costs for the single-family room
design, We thought it would be
greater," Harris said.
The study looked at Level III
NICUs, which care for the most
acute babies needing the most spe-
cialized care.
Researchers employed five
methods to compare the units,
including space allocations, con-
struction costs, staff preferences and
perceptions and occupant behaviors.
The study was published in the
October issue of the Journal of


I


Pennatology.
Other researchers involved
include Nlardelle Shepley of Texas
A&M Uniersity, Robert White of
Memorial Hospital in South Bend,
Ind., Kathleen Kolberg of the
University of Notre.Dame and James
Harrell 6f the Harrell Group in
Cincinnati, Ohio.
SPrevious research on single-
family room units is limited. Harris
views this study as a preliminary,
comprehensive effort to generate
future in-depth research.
Researchers .were unable -to
obtain sufficient data to compare the
impact of room design on the health
of the infants, but a future study will
include data on weight, days oni ven-
tilation, head circumference, hospi-
tal-acquired infections, length of
stay, etc.
"This study presents an agenda
for further research. In addition, it
can be used as a tool for hospitals'to
determine if their NICUs should or
can be designed as single-family
units," Harris said.
"For those renovating existing
space, this. may prove challenging.
But for new units, it is an option that
should be considered."

NASA technology comes to

Some of Uncle Sam's injured soldiers returning

rockets and is now aiding U.S. service personnel
with spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries at Walter
Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
The late James Kerley created and patented the.
technology,consisting of short segments of flexible
cable that connect to hardware, all of which allows
joint-like, multidirectional movement and shock
absorption. Allen Crane and Wayne Eklund teamed
with Kerley in the 1990s to incorporate this "cable-


.compliant" system into a patented walker that sup-
ported the pelvis and imitated hip joint movement,
which ultimately alleviated pain to injured patients
by reducing the amount of weight placed on the legs.
In 2003, Enduro Medical Technologies, East
Hartford, Conn., 'licensed these patented NASA
technologies and modified the cable-compliant sys-
tem into an advanced walker with a flexible harness
that embraces the lower torso.
"We felt SAM would be an ideal fit for Walter
Reed because it makes the rehabilitation process less
taxing on both the patient and the medical staff,"
said Enduro's president Ken' Messier. According to
Messier, SAM allows patients to stand orwalk bear-
ing various amounts of their own weight whether
they have a sense of balance or not. "It allows them
to stand without having three or four therapists help-


ing them," explained Messier. "So it gets the patient
up sooner in the rehabilitation process without a fear
of falling and without injuries to the patient or staff."
According to Messier, one active military
patient at Walter Reed who was wheelchair-bound
for two years due to a spinal cord injury is now up
and walking with SAM. "When we first put him in
the walker, he was up and going for 25 minutes,"
explained Messier. "He's now walking for up to 25
minutes every day and even using SAM to perform
exercises to strengthen his leg muscles."
The SAM walker, born by way of NASA's tech-
nology transfer program, also gives patients with
degenerative conditions like severe arthritis, multi-
ple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's Disease, cerebral palsy,
and Parkinson's Disease an opportunity to safely
extend their mobility.

NASA To a non-scientist, the words 'radio
occultation' might sound a little spooky. But this
relatively simple NASA-developed technology at
the heart of a new satellite network named Cosmic
is proving to be a powerful new tool for weather
and climate forecasting.
Launched April 14, 20,06, the six spacecraft of
the Constellation Observing System for
Meteorology, Ionosphere and Climate measure the
bending and slowing of microwave radio signals
as they pass through Earth's atmosphere.
The signals are transmitted from U.S. global
positioning system (GPS) satellites to Cosmic's
GPS science receivers, which were designed by
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. These bending
and slowing events, referred to as occultations,
occur when the GPS satellite signals are interrupt-
ed as the satellites rise or set on Earth's horizon,
blocking theirtransmission.
By precisely measuring -- to a few trillionths
of a second -- the time delay from this bending,
scientists can infer information on atmospheric
conditions such as air density, temperature,, mois-
ture, refractl ity, pressure and electron density.
This makes GPS radio occupation a powerful new
tool for w weather and climate forecasting and space
weather research. Now, with Cosmic, the technol-
ogy appears poised to take off.,
A joint endeavor between several U.S. and
Taiwanese agencies and institutions, Cosmic is
currently feeding real-time, weather balloon-qual-

Gallo a plant molecular biolo-'
gist who conducted the research
with her graduate student, Il-Ho
Kang.
Their Work has been pub-
lished online by the journal Plant
Science 'and will appear in an


upconiing issue of the piublica-:
tion.
Peanuts are kno n for being
loaded with protein, but over the
years .scientists have reported
about 20 types of protein mole-
cules that seem to trigger an
overblown immune response in
those: with peanut sensitivities.
The' three that cause the most
problems are dubbed Ara h 1,
Ara h 2 and Ara h 3.
The latter, however, sorie-
times shows up in a form that's'
slightly different than that found
in most peanuts.
This altered protein has
been named Ara h 3-im. The UF
researchers extracted peanut pro-:
teins and exposed them to blood'
drawn from two people who are
allergic to peanuts and one who
isn't.. .
The normal form of the pro-
tein set off a severe reaction in
the samples from the allergenic
patients, but Ara h 3-im' pro-
duced none-showing that the
patients' immune defenses didn't
recognize this altered protein.
SAs promising as this sounds.
the future of an allergen-free
peanut is far from certain.
'. "This seems great, but we
need to go through and try this
out w\ ith samples front a lot more
than just three people to see that
this lack of response is truefor
everyone." Gallo' said. -

accomplished, then they \would
all have to be put together to pro-
duce a peanut plant that would
replace those used by peanut
farmers today.
Don't look for this to be
something that you'll see in the
next twenty years or so." said
Peggy Ozias-Akins. a peanut
genome researcher at the
University of Georgia. "There's
a lot of genetics groundwork that
we still have to lay before we
even know if something like this
can be done.
'"However, it opens up an
opportunity. And, more impor-
tantly, it tells us a lot about food
allergies." she said. And that
knowledge is not limited to
peanuts. "Similar structures
could be found in soybeans-
which would be the most likely
plant-but also in tree nuts and a
lot of other foods."
In the end, building a better
peanut might not need to be the
ultimate goal.
Understanding why the
human immune system doesn't
overreact to this particular form
of protein could play a vital role
in other efforts to protect those
with peanut sensitivities, such as
efforts to create a peanut allergy
-vaccine. '
"There are many dedicated
scientists out there working on
this, and technology is making
our jobs easier and easier," Gallo
said. "We'll figure out how to
produce an even healthier
peanut."

UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Each day, Florida
gains an average of 1,000 residents and loses
more than 200 acres of forest-but University of
Florida experts say rapid urbanization doesn't
doom the state to a treeless existence.
That rapid urbanization is the reason 10 pub-
lic and private agencies are pooling resources to
promote better, more comprehensive research and
education programs aimed at keeping Florida's
forests healthy and abundant.
The Cooperative for Conserved Forest
Ecosystems: Outreach and Research, or CFEOR,
is a just-formed group of agencies connected to
the state's forests.
It is the first time in the state's history that
these agencies have pulled together to save tax-
payer dollars to conduct research and outreach
aimed at conserving and managing Florida's
forests.
"We're all-dealing with the same issues-
each with a little different twist," said Mike Long,
director of the state's Division of Forestry. Long,
elected CFEOR's first chairman earlier this
month, will lead the group until 2008.
Research CFEOR will fund and conduct
includes restoring forest ecosystems, controlling
invasive species, using fire to keep forests healthy,
helping protect threatened species, developing
cost-effective conservation strategies and improv-
ing the management of forest recreation.
Besides stretching taxpayer dollars, Long
said, having those who deal with similar issues sit
down and talk is already paying off.
Long said he and a few other forestry offi-
cials, including UF's School of Forest Resources
and Conservation Director Timothy White, were
having a casual conversation about forestry issues
when the consortium idea was hatched about two
years ago.
.According to CFEOR's founding'document,
four co-directors from'UF will provide expertise
in areas such as economics and
policy, ecology, ecotourism and
wildlife conservation: Janaki
Alavalapati, Shibu Jose, Taylor
Stein and George Tanner.
Early plans call for a steer-


ing committee made up of members who oversee
more than 100,000 acres of forest or natural
resources who will chip in $8,000 a year toward
research, commit to support at least one other
research project and make other in-kind contribu-
tions.
Regular CFEOR members, who, manage
fewer than 100,000 acres, will chip in'$4,000 a
year; and supporting.members, who don't oversee
public lands, will contribute $1,000.
The new structure and communication should
pay off with more broad-based, powerful scientif-
ic research, said UF recreation and ecotourism
associate professor Taylor Stein, one of the co-
directors.
"This is going to make our research have
more practical use," he said. "If We're continually
talking to 10 agencies, we're going to be more
likely to say what it means to them and how it can
help them."
Charlie Houder, deputy executive director of
the Suwannee River Water Management District,
said his agency manages more than 150,000 acres
of public land-and they have plenty of questions
for scientists.
"We could never afford to undertake these
programs on our own, so throwing in these dollars
with other agencies-it will help a lot," he said.
Houder said his agency needs to know things
such as how to restore native ground cover, how
quickly and large some types of trees will grow
and how best to protect rivers and floodplains.
"We thought if we formed, a group and looked.
at research and the needs of state agencies, there
might be a few things we could share in common,
and possibly allow us to get things done that we
couldn't get done alone," he said.
Besides UF and the Division of Forestry,
CFEOR's founders include the Florida Fishs and.
Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida Park
Service, Florida Wildlife Federation, National
Forests in Florida, The Nature Conservancy, the
Northwest Florida, Suwannee River and St. Johns
water management districts.


FSU history professor's book makes New York Times '100 Notable Books'


By Barry Ray
'"I-~~~~~~ ].p.B xft
Happiness: It's what's hot. At least, that's what Florida State
University historian Darrin M. McMahon is finding to be the case.
McMahon, an associate professor of history at FSU, released
his book "Happiness: A History" to stellar reviews and media fan-
fare earlier this year. No\. "Happiness" has earned its author even
more attention as The New York Times named it to the newspaper's
annual "100 INotable Books of the Year." list. (The complete list:
published on:Monday,. Dec. 4, can be viewed here.)
Everywhere we look, happiness-or at least the promise of it-
is a highly sought commodity, McMahon noted. From advertising to'
contemporary economic theory, ps cholog\ and psychopharmacol-
ogy and, of course, religion, the search for happiness is the great
motivating force of our time. Why, then, aren't we any happier?
That all-out pursuit of happiness is precisely the reason it's so
difficult to attain, he said..


,"Tt is onl\ relatively} recenIh thlat human peingshR begup to
think of happiness as not just earthly possibility, but also in, some
ways as an obligation or entitlement, a natural human right,"
McMahon said. "As I try to show in the book, this has had an unin-
tended effect. When we think of happiness as our natural.condi-
tion-the way we ought to be-then it becomes natural to blame
ourselves or others when we are not happy, as if somehow we've
been done an injustice or done something wrong ourselves. I think
this has created a new and Very modem pressure, even a new type
of unhappiness: I call it the unhappiness ofnot being happy.
