One week goes by...and...


A quick look at the progress made in one week on Cleveland Street in downtown Clearwater. The top images were taken on
January 17, the bottom were taken one week later on January 24. Cleveland has been under construction from Osceola to
Myrtle Avenues since summer last year. Business owners and residents are starting to grumble about how long the project
is taking.. We thought we'd see how much work was completed in a seven day period.

Entitlement programs soak

up money that could boost

business

Teachers give report cards for a reason: So students (and their
parents) will know what subjects they're doing well in, and where
they need to improve.
This week marks the release of the 13th annual Index of
Economic Freedom, published by the Heritage Foundation and the
Wall Street Journal. It gives each nation an overall grade, and it also
measures economic freedom in 10 distinct categories, so each coun-
try can identify its strengths and weaknesses.
This year, Americans have reason to cheer -- and reason for
concern.
For the moment, the United States is doing quite well in the
index. We're ranked fourth overall, trailing only Asian tigers Hong
Kong and Singapore and fast-rising Australia. Our economic free-
dom score, 82 out of a possible 100, is a solid B. (The Index editors
are tough graders; nobody got an A.)
But consider our lowest score in any category, 67.5 in
"Freedom from Government." We get a "D" in this category because
it includes government spending. Put simply, our government
spends far too much (as a share of GDP) -- and makes far more
promises than it can afford to keep.
The evidence is overwhelming. Real annual federal spending
has nearly doubled since 1980 and seems to be picking up speed.
Indeed, it's up 45 percent since President Bush took office. At the
end of last year, federal spending topped 20 percent of our entire
Gross Domestic Product.
Most worrisome is the growth of entitlement programs. Social
Security, Medicare and Medicaid are all promises. And politicians
are always on the lookout to sweeten benefits for today's retirees,
who are avid voters. The problem is that it will be virtually impos-
sible for the next generation of taxpayers to pay for these expensive
promises.
How bad is it? If today's entitlement-driven budget is simply
left on autopilot, federal spending will reach 50 percent of GDP by
2050. Americans would be working as much for the government as
for themselves. So much for "freedom from government."
The index reveals problems on the other side of the budgetary
coin: taxation. Here, our biggest shortcoming is particularly obvi-
ous, and the rest of the world is exploiting it.
The problem? The United States has the world's second highest
corporate tax rate, trailing only Japan. Even socialist France has a
lower corporate tax rate, and French President Jacques Chirac
recently introduced a proposal to slash his country's rate from 33
percent to.20 percent.
Higher corporate tax rates put American companies at a signif-
icant competitive disadvantage. They penalize workers, and cost
consumers, too. After all, corporations don't pay taxes -- people do.
American corporations pass on the cost of their higher tax burdens
to their customers where possible and also sharpen the pencil on
payroll costs.
America's top personal income tax rate is nothing to brag about,
either. It's 25 percent higher today than when Ronald Reagan left
office, and things may soon get worse. If we allow the 2001 and
2003 pro-growth tax cuts to expire, the top tax rate will climb to
nearly 40 percent. That would create huge economic problems,
slowing growth, investment and job creation.
The lesson of the'new index remains the same as it was in past
years: Economic freedom and prosperity are inextricably linked. In
nation after nation, year after year, greater economic freedom yields
greater riches for the people.
Our report card shows the United States is thriving -- for now.
We're doing better than last year, when we were No. 10 globally. But
that's principally because the index has been revised to include labor
freedom, and the United States has one of the least restrained labor
markets anywhere, while European economies have choked off
employment opportunities with red tape that pushes up unemploy-
ment.
Still, we have plenty of work ahead. We need to slash spending
and lower tax rates. That way, we can ensure the United States
remains a beacon of economic freedom for the world.

Edwin Feulner is president of The Heritage Foundation (her-
itage.org), a Washington-based public policy research institute and
co-author of the new book Getting America Right.

Restoring Old Glory and a massive meatball Seven-Layer Bean Dip


: I.
"'.


As two hurricanes, Frances and Jeanne, assaulted the east coast of
Florida in 2004, the flag was damaged when exterior panels were
ripped away by the winds.


A painters' platform can be seen suspended on the side of
Kennedy Space Center's Vehicle Assembly Building, where the
repainting of the American flag and the NASA logo is under way. The
images were last painted in 1998 for NASA's 40th anniversary.

SI l'.,h] r- -

During the active storm season of 2004, the Kennedy Space Center
was battered by two hurricanes in less than a month. The Vehicle
Assembly Building lost 850 panels from the south exterior during
Hurricane Frances, and 25 additional panels were pulled off the east
side by the winds from Hurricane Jeanne just three weeks later.


The star-spangled banner

NASA's Kennedy Space Center

Building, the American flag and
the NASA logo that adorn the
south face of the building are
receiving a badly needed paint
job.
The 209-foot-tall, 110-foot-
wide flag was first painted on the
building in 1976 in celebration
of the American Revolution
bicentennial. To make sure
NASA planners got it right, the

Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
The result was the largest
American flag ever depicted,
with its stripes 9 feet wide and
stars measuring 6 feet in diame-
ter.
In addition to the flag, a
110-foot symbol of the bicenten-
nial was also added to the build-
ing at that time and remained
there for the next 22 years.
In 1998, to commemorate


NASA's 40th anniversary, the
fading flag was repainted and the
12,300-square-foot NASA logo -
- affectionately known as the
"meatball" -- replaced the bicen-
tennial emblem.
Since then, time and weath-
er (especially the 2004 hurricane
season) took their toll on the flag
and the meatball. During back-
to-back hurricanes, the building
lost nearly 850 of its panels that
each measure 14 by 6 feet, and
not even the flag was spared.
The strong storm winds took a
"bite" out of Old Glory's stripes
until repairs were completed.
But things are looking brighter
for the building that has served
human spaceflight for more than
40 years. Painters' elevated plat-
forms once again dangle high on
the side of the 525-foot-high
structure while workers use
rollers and brushes to spruce up
the flag and meatball -- not a
task for the faint of heart.
In the end, the results will
be seen for miles, and one of the
most visible symbols of the
launch complex will shine once
more.


UF to research stem cell treatments for


heart disease


The bicentennial emblem, painted in 1976 to honor the country's
200th birthday, faded from view under a coat of primer as it was
replaced by the NASA "meatball" in 1998.


New partnerships to


strengthen arts in


St. Petersburg


ST. PETERSBURG -
Mayor Rick Baker announced
on January 18, a visionary new
plan for an arts complex on
downtown's St. Petersburg
College (SPC) campus near
Williams Park that will provide
a home for Florida Orchestra's
headquarters and new theater
space for St. Petersburg's
acclaimed American Stage
Theater.
The announcement also
includes plans for SPC to
assume ownership and manage-
ment of the Palladium Theater.
The agreement among SPC,
the Florida Orchestra, American
Stage and the Palladium Theater
consolidates private funds and
matching state grants to build a
new multi-story complex on
SPC's property at the corer of
Second Ave. N. and Third St.
The Palladium Theater, a
historic 880-seat venue also in


downtown St. Petersburg, will
also be enhanced, continuing on
its core mission to provide a
community arts venue as well as
additional SPC programs and an
alternate rehearsal space for the
Florida Orchestra.
"This is a win-win-win-
win-win situation for four orga-
nizations that are a critical com-
ponent to St. Petersburg's rising
prominence as a cultural leader
in the southeast," said Mayor
Rick Baker.
"American Stage can con-
tinue to grow with a larger,
state-of-the-art theater; the
Florida Orchestra will be at
home in new headquarters; the
Palladium will see improve-
ments and additional program-
ming; and SPC can expand its
curriculum in the performing
arts through partnerships with
these and other quality institu-
tions."

restrictions differed

St. Petersburg's watering restrictions are different than those in
surrounding cities and counties. As a,result, the city's Water
Resources Dept. has experienced high caller volume with questions
regarding the correct watering restrictions.
St. Petersburg, similar to other communities in the region, cur-
rently restricts watering to once-a-week. However, St. Petersburg
utility customers have different watering days than most of the sur-
rounding communities.
St. Petersburg residents may water only on Saturday or Sunday

whose cardiologists might have told them

Projects likely will involve the use of
stem cells obtained from a, patient's own
bone marrow or peripheral veins or even
from the heart itself and will incorporate
new strategies for cell delivery to the heart
and techniques for screening and localizing
transplanted cells. In some studies the cells
may be treated to enhance their function
before they are returned to the body.
For example, UF investigators have
found that exposing these cells to nitric
oxide, low oxygen levels, low temperatures
or even gene therapy enhances their ability
to restore function in animal models.
Methods of delivering the cells to the blood
vessels or directly into scarred heart muscle
also will be tested.
UF scientists also have proposed one
study that involves extracting skeletal mus-
cle cells from the thigh in patients with
severe heart failure who are awaiting heart
transplantation. The cells would be multi-
plied in tissue culture and then implanted
directly into the same patient's heart.
The goal would be to determine whether
the cells can strengthen a very weakened
heart and determine how long the cells sur-
vive, said Dr. Daniel Pauly, an associate pro-
fessor of medicine and director of the divi-
sion of cardiovascular medicine's molecular
cardiology and genetics section at UF's
College of Medicine.
Researchers will include experts in var-
ious disciplines, such as hematology,
nephrology, radiology, stem cell biology,
cardiovascular medicine, pediatric cardiolo-
gy and cardiothoracic surgery. They will
work closely with various university facili-
ties to obtain and process the cells used in
the research, including the bone marrow
transplant unit, and the Good Manufacturing
Practices facility at the Center of Excellence
for Regenerative Health Biotechnology.

Odd addresses or the letters N through Z, or at locations with
no address should irrigate on Sunday.
Irrigation is allowed between 5 to 9 a.m. and 7 to 11 p.m. on
the assigned days.

These mandatory restrictions apply to properties using potable
water; private well water, and private connections to surface water
sources (lakes, ponds, etc.) for irrigation purposes. It does not apply
to irrigation with reclaimed water. These current restrictions are in
effect until July 31, 2007.
In addition to the watering restrictions, car washing is limited
to one day per week, and operation of fountains and other aesthetic-
only water features is limited to eight hours a day.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. A new study
led by a University of Florida paleontologist
reconstructs the base of our family tree and
extends its roots 10 million years, a finding
that sheds new light on the origin and earli-
est stages of primate evolution.
Published online this week in the
Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences and featured on the cover of its Jan.
23 print edition, the study offers compelling
evidence that a group of archaic mammals
called plesiadapiforms (please-ee-ah-dape-i-
forms) are more closely related to modern
primates than to flying lemurs, which previ-
ously had been proposed.
The two-part study examined specimens
representing more than 85 modern and
extinct species and provides evidence that
plesiadapiforms are the most primitive pri-
mates. The team also discovered two 56-mil-
lion-year-old fossils, the most primitive pri-
mate skeletons ever described.
"These fossil finds from Wyoming show
that our earliest primate ancestors were the
size of a mouse, ate fruit and lived in the
trees," said study leader Jonathan Bloch, a
vertebrate paleontology curator at the
Florida Museum of Natural History. "It is
remarkable to think we are still discovering
new fossil species in an area studied by pale-
ontologists for over 100 years."
Bloch discovered the new plesiadapi-
form species, Ignacius clarkforkensis and
Dryomomys szalayi, just outside
Yellowstone National Park in the Bighorn


Basin with co-author Doug Boyer, a gradu-
ate student in anatomical science at Stony
Brook University.
Ignacius previously was known to sci-
ence only by skulls and isolated bones. Other
scientists have proposed that the animal was
not an archaic primate, but instead a gliding
mammal related to flying lemurs. However,
Bloch and his team debunked this idea based
on an analysis of a more complete and well-
preserved skeleton. The second species,
Dryomomys, had a skull about the size of a
.grape with a body length of about 6 inches.
"The demise of the dinosaurs opened up
ecological space for mammals to diversify,
which they did-and quickly," Bloch said.
"The Paleocene, about 65 (million) to 55
million years ago, is the time period between
the extinction of the dinosaurs and the first
appearance of a number of undisputed mem-
bers of the modern orders of mammals."
Researchers previously hypothesized
that plesiadapiforms maybe the ancestors of
modern primates, but this idea generated
healthy debate within the paleontology com-
munity; Bloch's team is the first to offer.
strong phylogenetic evidence supporting it.
The team analyzed 173 characteristics
of modern primates, tree shrews, flying
lemurs with plesiadapiform skeletons to
determine which species were most closely
related.
"This collaboration is the first to bring
together evidence from all regions of the
skeleton, and offers a well-supported per-


spective on the structure of the earliest part
of the primate family tree," Bloch said.
Modern primates can be recognized by
at least five characteristic features: relatively
large brains, enhanced vision brought about
in part by eyes that face forward, a special-
ized ability to leap, nails instead of claws on
at least the first toes, and specialized grasp-
ing hands and feet. Plesiadapiforms have
some but not all of these traits, and Bloch
and his team argue that this group of early
primates may have acquired these traits over
10 million years in incremental changes to
exploit their environment.
Bloch said plesiadapiforms adapted to
changes in flowering trees. As the trees
evolved, the early primates became more
efficient at utilizing their flowers, fruit and
sap and the insects attracted to these same
food sources.
"Plesiadapiforms have long been one of
the most controversial groups in mammalian
phylogeny," said Michael J. Novacek, cura-
tor of paleontology at the American Museum
of Natural History. "First, they are some-
where near primates and us. Second, histori-
cally they have offered tantalizing, but very
often incomplete, fossil evidence. But the
specimens in their study are beautifully and
spectacularly preserved."
The team also includes anthropology
professors Eric Sargis of Yale University and
Mary Silcox from the University of
Winnipeg.

Labor unions are down, but they're not neces-
sarily out. That's the verdict of Jack Fiorito, a pro-
fessor of management in the Florida State University
College of Business. Fiorito has analyzed various
changes in the marketplace, the workplace and the
political realm that have challenged organized labor
in a new paper, "The State of the Unions in the
United States," which will be published in the
Winter 2007 issue of the Journal of Labor Research.
In 2005, U.S. labor unions made headlines for a
pair of events that highlighted the labor movement's
struggle to stem decades of decline and lost influ-
ence. In July of that year, four of the nation's largest
unions split away from the AFL-CIO, a voluntary
federation of nearly five dozen national and interna-
tional unions.
The following September, a new group, the
Change to Win Federation, was founded by seven
unions and 6 million workers who were "devoted to
building a movement of working people."
Observers were left to wonder what was going
on and what these events said about the "state of the
unions" in the United States.
"Labor unions have long been an integral part of
the American workplace and political landscape, but
major structural changes in our country over the past
quarter-century have radically altered the playing
field," Fiorito said.


The stereotypical image of a U.S. union mem-
ber in 1980 was that of a blue-collar, middle-aged
white male employed in manufacturing, construction
or transportation and residing in the Northeast, the
Great Lakes region or on the West Coast. However,
that image needs updating, Fiorito said.
"In 2007, the typical union member is more
likely to be Hispanic or Asian-American, a bit older,
and more hkelN to reside in the S,'uth." he .Iid (,i ',
"All of these reflect more general changes in our
country. The most dramatic change, however, is that
the typical 2007 union member is considerably more
likely to be a female, a professional or manager, or a
public-sector worker, and far less likely to work in
manufacturing. These days, 'Joe Lunch Bucket' is
increasingly likely to be 'Chris Briefcase.'"
In his paper, Fiorito shows how increased glob-
al competition and domestic deregulation, among
other economic factors, combined to provide impor-
tant forces for change in collective bargaining and
unions.
The year 1980 also marked the beginning of a
conservative turn in attitudes and government, start-
.ing with the election of Ronald Reagan to the White
House. With the exception of the Clinton era, unions
have faced a more hostile federal government and
ideological climate than at any time since the 19th
century.


"The effects of all these societal shifts have
been devastating to unions," Fiorito said.
"Although union membership began a long-
term decline as early as 1955, when unions repre-
sented roughly one-third of the U.S. work force, the
decline accelerated dramatically in the early 1980s.
Somewhat belated union responses slowed the
decline and perhaps even stabilized union member-
ship by the late 1990s-but.:at:less than one-,e enth
of the work force, and only one-tw'elfth among pri-
vate-sector workers. Consequently, the.state of the
unions must be described as considerably weakened.
"There is little room to doubt that unions are
'down,'" he said. "Whether they are 'out' is another
matter. Despite abundant gloomy indicators on
union vitality, there are signs of life and sources of
hope for the future of U.S. unions."
It would be easy to predict a continued decline
for organized labor, and that is indeed a likely sce-
nario, Fiorito said. However, he points to other fac-
tors that suggest opportunities for union revitaliza-
tion.
"Considering the environment-25-plus years
of intensifying competitive pressures and a largely
hostile political climate-the survival of the unions
attests to strength and resilience," he said.

McCollum announces $8 million multi-state settlement with Bayer


or reject TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Bill
McCollum Wednesday announced that Florida and
29 additional states have reached an $8 million set-
tlement with Bayer Corporation, resolving an inves-
012619 tigation into the marketing of a drug to lower cho-
lesterol.
The settlement was part of a consumer protec-
'D FOR tion enforcement action initiated over concerns that
42 Bayer failed to adequately disclose safety risks asso-
ciated with Baycol.
In May 1998, Bayer began marketing Baycol, a
type of cholesterol-lowering drug known as a station.
Statins carry a known risk of myopathy, a weakening
of the muscles, as well as a more serious muscular
Order of disease.
by the Through post-marketing studies of its product,
Bayer learned that the risk associated with Baycol
was significantly higher compared to other stations,
of ic particularly at higher doses and when combined with


another particular cholesterol-lowering drug. Baycol
was withdrawn from the prescription drug market in
August 2001.
The investigation, initiated by the states in
2004, alleged that while Bayer informed the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration about these adverse
effects, the company failed to adequately warn con-
sumers.
"Manufacturers shouldn't be allowed to hide
medical information that doctors rely on to prescribe
the correct medicine for their patients," McCollum
said. "This could potentially harm our citizens and
their safety is our priority."
Today's settlement requires Bayer to pay a total
of $8 million to the 30 participating states. Florida's
share of the settlement funds is $200,000 and will
reimburse taxpayers for the cost of the state's inves-
tigation.
The company must also register most of its clin-


ical studies and then post the results at the end of
each study. Bayer is requited to fully comply with
the state laws regulating the marketing, sale and pro-
motion of its pharmaceutical and biological prod-
ucts.
The company is further prohibited from making
false and misleading claims relating to any such
product sold in the United States.
The settlement, filed today in Broward County
in the form of a consent judgment, is awaiting
approval from a circuit judge.
In addition to Florida, participating states
include Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut,
Delaware, Kansas, Kentucky, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa,
Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan,
Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina,
Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South

TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 19, 2007) Elisabeth Fraser,
associate professor of art history in USF's College of
Visual and Performing Arts, has been named a
National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow for
the 2007-08 academic year.
Fraser was awarded the $40,000 NEH fellow-
ship to work on her book, Mediterranean
Encounters: Travel, Representation and French
Expansionism, 1780-1850.
The NEH fellowship is one of the most presti-
gious awards given to scholars in the arts: Of 1,398
applications from all humanities disciplines in 2006,
only 153 were awarded fellowships.
"The College of Visual and Performing Arts is


extremely proud of this recognition and considers it
a validation of the strong art history program at
USF," said Ron Jones, dean of the College of Visual
and Performing Arts.
Fraser's study explores the relationship between
travel images and imperialist politics, and examines
a host of artists, print makers, architects, cartogra-
phers, booksellers, antiquarigns, archaeologists,
diplomats, and writers.
"In addition to spreading knowledge about
Mediterranean societies," Fraser writes, "travel liter-
ature and images played a major role in defining
France's sense of itself as heir to the ancient civi-
lizations of the Mediterranean and as an expansion-


ist presence in the regions of the Ottoman Empire."
In Mediterranean Encounters, Fraser's second
book project, she connects travel images to ethno-
graphic studies, travel fiction, the history of the
book, European politics, the sociology of tourism,
post-colonial theory, and travel history.
Her first book. Delacroix, Art and Patrimony in
Post-Revolutionary France was published in 2004
by Cambridge University Press.
Fraser's research has been previously supported
by a summer fellowship from USF's Humanities
Institute, two Summer Provost's Grants, and a
Creative Scholarship Grant fiom Sponsored
Research.

At FSU, a 'revolutionary'


approach to science education


By Barry Ray
FSU

In a basement on the Florida State University cam-
pus, one of the world's foremost scientists is working to
ignite a revolution. But Sir Harold Kroto's mission isn't
the overthrow of a government; instead, he is making
use of modern technology to launch what he calls a "rev-
olution" in the way schoolchildren all over the world are
taught about science.
Harold Kroto In a career spanning more than four
decades, Kroto has scaled the heights of scientific
achievement. But for his latest challenge, the FSU chem-
istry professor, English knight and Nobel laureate is
developing new ways of using the Internet to get chil-
dren all over the world excited about science-and will-
ing to work together to address some of humanity's most
pressing problems.
Kroto, FSU's Francis Eppes Professor of Chemistry,
has launched an educational initiative he calls GEO,
short for "Global Educational Outreach." Using relative-
ly inexpensive "capture station" technology, Kroto, with
FSU colleagues, is creating his own science programs,
complete with video feeds, photos, graphics and
PowerPoint presentations, and then making them acces-
sible via the Internet to classrooms all over the world.
The immediate focus, he said, is not the students, but
their teachers, who can be empowered by having access
to the best teaching materials worldwide, all packaged
for immediate use in the classroom.
"I think this is a revolution for education," Kroto
said, adding that his aim is to develop a user-friendly
system that he and his FSU colleagues can operate by
themselves. "This will allow us to create inexpensive,
very effective teaching programs and make them avail-
able globally, not just locally," he said.
As Kroto envisions it, GEO also will provide an
effective forum for bridging divisions between the sci-
ences and the humanities, as well as those between cul-
tures.
"I want kids to think about science and art together;
I don't want to separate them," he said. "I also want all
our children to be taught together. Whatever their faith,
race or nationality, they must learn together-particular-
ly about the sciences. Science is the same whichever
country you live in, whichever personal philosophy you
have-it is just knowledge and is totally independent of
personal attitudes. The Internet may be our last hope of
promoting true global citizenship-a world community
that sees no differences between colors and nations-
and possibly saving the Enlightenment.
"Of course, science must be used wisely, and the
only way to ensure that is by good education. Ignorance
allied with irrationality will surely be disastrous. And if
we don't (do this), we're going to have a problem,


because the issue that we face today is sustainability,"
Kroto said. "We want young people to address these
problems ... We use something like a million years'
worth of fossil fuel every year. Just think about it: It took
a million years to produce the gasoline that goes into
your petrol tank. We've got to make everybody and espe-
cially our young people aware of it. As they pour gaso-
line into their cars, they are pouring in the leftover
remains of dinosaurs and pterodactyls that lived count-
less millions of years ago."
To produce GEO's teaching materials, a studio,
located in the basement of FSU's Dittmer Laboratory of
Chemistry, has been created by Kroto in association with
two chemistry-department colleagues. Professor Penny
Gilmer and adjunct instructor Colin Byfleet. They are
receiving technical assistance from David Simpson and
Jose Hernandez in FSU's Academic and Professional
Program Services department, and from Gary Poplin, an
engineer in chemistry.
A professor of chemistry at Sussex University in
England for 37 years. Kroto joined the faculty at FSU in
2004. He is best known for his discovery, with col-
leagues Richard E. Smalley and Robert F. Curl Jr., of
buckminsterfullerene, a unique carbon molecule consist-
ing of 60 carbon atoms arranged as a spheroidal cage.
Buckminsterfullerene, whose individual molecules have
been dubbed "buckyballs," was found to be extraordi-
narily strong and light and to form superconducting
compounds. Its discovery has opened up an entirely new
branch of science known as Fullerene Chemistry and has
led to a completely new and important perspective on
the structure and properties of sheet materials at
nanoscale dimensions. As a result of their research,
Kroto, Curl and Smalley were awarded the 1-996 Nobel
Prize for Chemistry.
When not preparing content for the GEO site, Kroto
maintains a schedule that would exhaust a younger per-
son. A full schedule of presentations at conferences and
symposia, university science departments and schools,
as well as science workshops for small children, often
can take him to four other continents within the space of
a month.
He also is much sought after as a speaker on human-
itarian and other social-responsibility issues through
such organizations as the Centre for Inquiry, the Elie
Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, and the Pugwash
Conferences, an organization of influential scholars and
public figures concerned with reducing the danger of
armed conflict and seeking cooperative solutions for
global problems. However, Kroto was quick to add that
he can only maintain such a rigorous schedule because
his wife, Margaret, spends hours each day meticulously
organizing his highly complex schedule, as well as "cov-
ering the plethora of other inajor logistical issues that
continually arise and have to be dealt with," he said.

UCF scientists' molecular


discovery could help drugs


target unhealthy cells


UCF Physics Professor and department chair Talat Rahman and professor Sergey Stolbov
work in their lab days before their research is published in Science Express, the online version
of Science magazine.


By Zenaida Gonzalez Kotala
UCF
University of Central Florida and
University of California Riverside profes-
sors are a step closer to being able to deliver
life-saving drugs through tiny molecules that
would travel through the bloodstream and
destroy only cancer-ridden cells.
In a paper published Jan. 18 in Science
Express, the scientists describe how they got
an adsorbate molecule (anthraquinone) to
pick up two carbon dioxide 'atoms and carry
them in a specific direction on a flat copper.
surface.
Their discovery helps scientists under-
stand how they someday may be able to
attach therapeutic drugs to molecules.
"It's significant because we wouldn't
expect atoms to move that way," said UCF
physics professor Talat Rahman, who co-
authored the study with Sergey Stolbov.
"Atoms tend to move randomly, like
dust particles, and getting them to move in a
specific direction will help in our under-
standing and manipulating of the region
around atoms."
It's what sci-fi fans have seen on televi-
sioii nanotechnology that sends micdrscop-
ic creatures to spa'e or the body to"make
repairs. That sci-fi reality is years away, but
this research is a step in that direction.
"Right now the only way we can trans-
port atoms is with instruments," Rahman
said.
"Being able to control that at a molecu-
lar level-would help us create a natural trans-
portation system that could aid us in many
ways in the future."
Next, the researchers want to see if they
can make the molecule carrier go around
corners, rotate its cargo or send out photons
to let scientists know where it is located.
S Rahman worked with Stolbov and UC


Riverside Associate Chemistry Professor
Ludwig Bartels. Bartels is also a member of
the university's Center for Nanoscale
Science and Engineering.
Rahman, who speaks four languages
fluently, has a doctorate from the University
of Rochester in New York. She began at
UCF as the chair of the Physics Department
in September 2006 after spending several
years as a university distinguished professor
at Kansas State University and previously as
a research scientist at the University of
California at Irvine.
Stolbov worked with Rahman at Kansas
State and also arrived at UCF in 2006. He is
a native of Rostov, Russia, and he earned his
doctorate in physics in that country.
UC Riverside's Bartels described the
chemical reaction as a molecule with two
shopping bags, carrying atoms from place to
place. Figuring out exactly how that works
would allow anything to be put into those
"shopping bags."
Bartels said the research is still in its
infancy but compared the promise it holds to
the evolution of cell phones during the past
ten years.
"Ten years ago, a cell phone could just
pliae calls, nothing else,"'"he said. "Now it
plays MP3 files, organizes your day and lets
you send e-mails and browse the Web."
Conducted in the Bartels Lab, the
research was funded by the U.S. Department
of Energy, the Petroleum Research Fund and
the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center pro-
vided resources as well.
Rahman and Stolbov will continue their
work at UCF.
"UCF is an exciting place to be with lots
of opportunities," Rahman said. "That why I
came here to continue my work."


USF men's basketball loses


to Notre Dame


SOUTH
BEND, Ind.
(January 21,2007)- -
- An extended first-
half scoring
drought proved to i
be the difference in
an 82-58 loss by the
University of South
Florida men's bas-
ketball team (10-10,
1-5 BE) at No. 20
Notre Dame (16-3,
4-2 BE) Sunday
afternoon.
Senior Kentrell
Gransberry led the
way with his sixth Senio
double-double in 13
games, finishing with 23
points and 11 rebounds.
Senior forward McHugh
Mattis chipped in 10 points,
three rebounds and three
blocks before fouling out
with 12:14 left in the second
half.
The injury depleted
Bulls entered the game with
just eight scholarship play-
ers, which included Amu
Saaka. Saaka attempted to
play on the injured ankle that
limited him to less than a
minute at West Virginia, but
couldn't give more than four
minutes Sunday.
The matchup marked
the third already this season
for the Bulls against a
nationally ranked BIG EAST
opponent on the road. USF
has also faced No. 14 UConn


r Kentrall Gransberry
and No. 10 Pittsburgh.
USF's offensive attack
came out firing in the open-
ing minutes of the first half.
The Bulls led by as
many as five points early
before the wheels started to
come off. Leading 24-23
with 8:32 left in the opening
stanza, Notre Dame would
close the half with a 19-2 run
and owned a 42-26 advan-
tage at the break.
The Bulls, who were
well over 50 percent from
the field in the first 10 min-
utes, finished 37.5 percent
(9-of-24) from the floor and
nine USF turnovers led to 10
Fighting Irish points.
Buckley led the way with
eight points, but all of those
came early.
USF made its final run


A,








Photo Jm Iau ie


in the opening moments of
the second half. After falling
behind by 19 points, the
Bulls closed the gap to 48-38
with some strong work
underneath by Gransberry.
Trailing by 10 and in
possession of the ball, USF
turned it over just before the
first media timeout. ND
responded with a 3-point
play and a trey on back-to-
back possessions to end the
momentum.
The Bulls concluded the
game at 41.2 percent from
the floor and 52.0 percent
from the charity stripe.
Gransberry didn't help USF's
effort from the line, finishing
just 3-of-12 on the afternoon.

TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 18, 2007) The University of South
Florida's department of anthropology is second in the nation in pub-
lic engagement, according to a recent ranking by the Hawaii-based
Center for Public Anthropology.
The ranking assesses academic departments' levels of public
visibility and engagement, using factors such as citations in public
media, collaborative programs involving the community, and the
engaged scholarship and outreach of individual faculty members.
The USF department of anthropology is widely recognized for
its focus on applied anthropology, and has several active engaged
units, including the Alliance for Applied Research in Education and
Anthropology, the Center for Applied Anthropology, and the West
Central Regional Public Archaeology Center.
"This is an excellent recognition of the department's national
visibility," said Elizabeth Bird, chairperson of the anthropology
department at USF "It is especially gratifying that this came just as
USF is being recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as an Engaged
Institution; we certainly believe we have contributed to this in a sig-
nificant way."
Bird and fellow anthropology department faculty member
Susan Greenbaum were listed with more than 50 citations in the
public media, as determined by a LexisNexis search.
Among the programs that led to the USF anthropology depart-
ment's high ranking:

SThe Alliance for Applied Research in Anthropology and
Education (AAREA), a research group led by Kathy Borman,
one of USF's "Million Dollar Researchers." AAREA coordi-
nates several major grants (NSF, DOE etc) that conduct
research in schools and universities looking at the effectiveness

of educational reforms and programs.
The West Central Regional Public Archaeology Center, part of
the Florida Public Archaeology Network. Funded by state funds
through the department, and housed at the Museum of Science
and Industry in Tampa, the center (and the network's) goal is to
increase public awareness and education about archaeology.
Another goal of Public Archaeology is the preservation of frag-
ile prehistoric and historic sites past that are being destroyed at
an alarming rate through natural process and development.
The annual Field School in Costa Rica: Globalization and
Health, led by Nancy Romero-Daza and David Himmelgreen,
which trains students in applied research methods; students
then carry out original research on topics designed by commu-
nity members, such as HIV/AIDS prevention and nutritional
issues, and present results to the community.
Multiple faculty applied projects, partnering USF faculty and
students with communities in the U.S. and abroad.
Multiple public outreach activities, including the USF anthro-
pology department's series of radio programs in 2005-06 with
WMNF-FM in Tampa, a workshop for public school teachers
on Teaching Evolution, and work being developed to provide
forensic training to law enforcement personnel.

The ranking included 394 schools, with Michigan State
University at the top, followed'in the Top 10 by USF; University of
Pennsylvania; Arizona State University; University of California,
Berkeley; Emory University; University of Arizona; University of
California, Irvine; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; Boston
University; University of Washington; and Harvard University.
