Still no "gas war." A local 7-11 (L) and Mobil station (R) located on 22nd Ave. N. and Dr. Martin Luther
King St. offer the same price on gas, just like last week, but now the price is up to almost 3 cents over
last week's rate of $2.53 for regular gasoline.




USF St. Petersburg hires


new dean of arts and


sciences


Regional Chancellor Karen A. White has
named Frank Biafora, Ph.D., Dean of the College
os Arts and Sciences. White said that faculty, staff
and students participated in the evaluation and
interview process of candi-
dates. "The leadership of the
dean of our College of Arts and
S Sciences is critical as the col-
"' lege is the heart of our univer-
sity. The college houses the
largest number of programs
S and majors and offers core cur-
S riculum courses that affect the
Photo:USF education of all USF St.
Frank Biafora Petersburg students."
Biafora is a Professor and
Associate Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences at St. John's University. A Professor of
Sociology, Biafora teaches and does research in
the areas of adolescent development, juvenile
delinquency, substance use and research method-
ology.
A recent recipient of a Fulbright Scholars
award in Vietnam, Biafora is also the principal
investigator of the Ronald McNair Scholars
Program for St. John's, a mentor-based program
designed to increase the racial and ethnic diversity
of future researchers and university professors.


Biafora completed his Bachelor of Arts and
Master of Arts degree, both in Sociology, from the
University of Florida. In 1991, he completed his
doctorate in Sociology at the University of Miami.
Regional Vice Chancellor for Academic
Affairs V. Mark Durand credited Anthony Silvia,
Ph.D., chair of the department of Journalism and
Media Studies, for chairing the search committee.
He said "The selection of Professor Biafora is
symbolic of the College faculty's commitment
both to their teaching mission as well as their
research goals. The College set a high standard for
their next leader and I'm confident that Professor
Biafora will meet and exceed these expectations."
Biafora said that he was honored-to be con-
sidered for this position and that he and his wife,
LeaAnn, an oncology nurse, are very excited to
join the St. Petersburg community.
.'The administration and faculty of USF St.
Petersburg have made incredible progress in a
short amount of time and the College of Arts and
Sciences is positioned to become a first choice
among prospective university students, regionally
and nationally," he said.
Interim Dean of the College of Arts and
Sciences James Gore will continue in his current
role through June 30.


SuperGas, located at 62nd Ave. N. and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. is up to $2.53 per gallon for regular
gasoline. This is actually one of the cheapest prices in North St. Petersburg.

A Chevron in St. Petersburg is not sure what to charge customers for gas. Perhaps they figured they
would leave the last digit off since they will need to change it in a few days anyway!




USF women advance to


third round of WNIT with


win over Coppin State

TAMPA, Fla. The University of South Florida women's basketball team went on a 20-3 run the
final 11 minutes of the game to beat Coppin State 66-49 in the second round of the Women's National
Invitation Tournament Monday night at the Sun Dome.
Senior all-America and player of the year candidate Jessica Dickson (Ocala, Fla.) scored 24 points
and had eight rebounds in the contest. Dickson was 10-10 at the free throw line.
The Bulls and Eagles had a see-saw battle for the first eight minutes of the contest, with both teams
gaining a three-point lead at least once in the segment. After USF took a one-point lead at 11:54, Coppin
State never went ahead the rest of the


game.
Dickson had 11 points and
Nalini Miller (Capital Heights, Md.)
had already tallied seven blocks in
the first 20 minutes of the game.
After trailing by six at the half,
the Eagles tied the contest with nine
minutes remaining, but USF went on
a 20-3 run to end the game by a 17-
point margin.
Miller tallied nine blocks, a
career-high and a school single game
record, while scoring six points and
pulling down six rebounds.
Senior guard Rachel Sheats
(Marietta, Ga.) also tallied double
figures, scoring 14 points while
grabbing' seven rebounds and four
steals. Sophomore guard Shantia


USF's Jessica Dickson is all-star material.

Grace (Sarasota, Fla.) dished out four assists and scored seven points.

Our leaders need to


adopt conservative


programs voters want


Politicians always insist they're paying attention to us. Hillary
Clinton, for example, launched her Senate bid a few years ago with
a "listening tour" of New York state. And every Friday while
Congress is in session, the city of Washington clears out, with law-
makers flying home to host town-hall meetings with voters.
But if our leaders really were listening, we'd see lawmakers
stampeding to enact the conservative policies the American people
repeatedly say they want.
Consider a recent poll conducted by Democracy Corps, a
Democratic outfit.
Registered voters were asked to select one of the following two
statements: "I want Congress to first invest in areas like health care,
education and energy, even if it means spending additional money,"
and "I want Congress to first focus on cutting wasteful spending and
making government more accountable." A large majority (58 per-
cent) opted for cutting wasteful spending. Little more than a third
(36 percent) wanted lawmakers to spend -- or as the firm
euphemistically put it, "invest" -- more.
S The same survey asked voters to choose between these state-
ments: "Government mostly stimulates the economy and job
growth," and "government mostly gets in the way of the economy
'and job growth." Only 34 percent said government stimulates the
economy, while 54 percent said it mostly gets in the way.
Liberal lawmakers can't be pleased by these results, which
show a solid preference for conservative policies.
Clearly, if lawmakers want to heed the voice of "the people,"
they ought to make government more efficient (by cutting wasteful
spending) and less intrusive (by making sure it's less involved in the
economy).
At least one person is working from within to make the federal
government more efficient. Lurita Doan is an entrepreneur President
Bush brought in last June to run the U.S. General Services
Administration. That's the federal agency that manages thousands of
government-owned and leased buildings.
Doan says she wants to prove she can run a federal agency like
a business (something voters would no doubt approve of). When she
took over GSA, it had a deficit of more than $100 million, which she
immediately slashed by ordering the agency to make a 9 percent
across-the-board spending cut. It may be the first time in decades an
administrator actually cut government spending.
But now Doan's under fire. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.)
wants her to testify before the House Oversight Committee "so that
she can respond" to his allegations, among them that she awarded a
"fi6-bi c6ffritt Wdotlh $20,000 to a'friend?." ." "i
If Doan did steer business to a friend. that would be wrong. But
it's worth wondering' if there isn't a itch hunt going oh here. After
all, this is a woman who has angered important bureaucrats by
slashing their budgets. Her agency manages $56 billion in contracts,
and she's being grilled about a $20,000 award? The hearing (sched-
uled for March 20) should be interesting.
It's not just domestic policy where politicians seem at odds with
voters.
Recently Congress has been considering options that would
undermine the president's ability to win the war in Iraq. But as a
recent poll by Public Opinion Strategies (a Republican outfit) indi-
cated, voters still want to win there. Half said that "our troops should
stay there and do whatever it takes to restore order until the Iraqis
can govern and provide security to their country." A mere 17 percent
said the United States "should immediately withdraw its troops from
Iraq."
That all sounds like an excellent agenda: Slash wasteful spend-
ing. Reduce federal involvement in the economy. Win the war in
Iraq.
The people have spoken. Will our leaders listen?

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Coral might be the slowest-growing
crop ever farmed by the University of Florida, but researchers say
damaged reefs could be repaired faster if they perfect methods to
cultivate the marine organisms.
UF experts are raising seven species of coral at the Tropical
Aquaculture Laboratory in Ruskin, and next week they'll dive to
check the progress of farmed corals returned to the wild last year.
The dive takes place at a reef near Key West where a freighter
ran aground in 1993, said Craig Watson, director of the Ruskin lab.
Almost 160 cookie-sized coral fragments
were placed there last year. The reef is
within the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary, a protected area that comprises
most of the Florida Keys.
"If you grow coral in a greenhouse in a
land-based system and put it in the wild, -
will it survive?" Watson said. "There are
those who say no, because it won't be accli-
mated to those conditions where it grew
and it can't survive elsewhere. We don't
believe that, we are setting out to prove that
wrong."
Researchers and the marine sanctuary
staff hope to create a network of nonprofit .
organizations, businesses and individuals to -
raise coral and contribute specimens to ,.
repair damage from events such as vessel
groundings and anchorings, said Lauri
MacLaughlin, a resource manager with the
marine sanctuary.
The sanctuary includes Western Sambo
Reef and Ecological Reserve, location of
the restoration effort.
"The dream is that corals rescued from
human impact or coastal construction pro-
jects be used to help restore reefs elsewhere Photo: AP photo/Univ,

Though corals feed by capturing working to perfect meth
minute organisms, they co-exist with algae aid in repairing damage
that provide additional food and give the
coral color.
The UF project involves seven coral species commonly found in
Florida, the only state in the continental United States with extensive
reefs near its coasts, Watson said. Overall, the state is home to more
than 100 coral species. Coral growth is estimated to range from one
foot to 16 feet every 1,000 years.

Fragments placed at the Key West site had been managed in one
of three ways, Watson said. One set was raised in a Ruskin green-
house, held in tanks of artificial seawater. Another was cultured at a
Mote Marine Laboratory facility at Summerland Key, using an out-
door system with seawater pumped from offshore. A third was
placed on the damaged reef almost immediately after harvest. Each
fragment is numbered so it can be tracked.
Colonies of larger fragments are being held in a rooftop green-

visor who handles day-to-day care of the colony. The aquarium
obtained two grants that fund the work; it is the organization leading
the project.
Czaja was.part of a team that collected
,- t- all the coral from its original home, an
''X underwater sea wall at a U.S. naval base in
"-- Key West Harbor. Planned offshore sea wall
construction threatened to encase or destroy
.-existing corals, so the state and the sanctu-
S ary granted a collecting permit.

S feet...But nothing dangerous or we would-

veterinarian, one of five divers making the

Kilgore will assess the health of each
fragment, using protocols developed by vet-

the Ruskin lab, and Ilze Berzins, vice presi-
dent of biological operations at the Florida

member.

sek'en games; a stretch that began withthie'March 8 contest against
Michigan State. During the streak, the Tampa native has had two
home runs and a pair of doubles, along with seven RBI. Two of those
seven games were multiple-hit outings.
In the third game of the series, the Bulls broke out of the gates
scoring four in the first two innings, then Pitt cut the margin in half
with a pair of runs in the third. USF gave themselves an insurance
run in the seventh and held off the Panthers the final three innings to
earn the three-run victory.
USF's first runs came as Taborelli, Maruszak and Butler had
consecutive base hits, giving Butler his 14th RBI of the season.
Daniel then drew a walk and freshman Ryan Soares registered a
fielder's choice, which brought Maruszak across the plate for the 2-
0 lead.
In the second inning, Diaz and Taborelli drew back-to-back
two-out walks, then Maruszak was hit by a pitch to load the bases.
Taborelli scored on a Pitt error, then a wild pitch by the Panthers
allowed Diaz to score the Bulls' fourth run.
Five innings later Mike Consolmagno drew his 12th walk of the
season, and scored after rounding the bases on ground outs by Diaz
and Taborelli.
Maruszak was 2-for-3 in the third conference game of the sea-
son, scoring one run and being hit by a pitch for the 12th time this
season.


New reagent delivers a chemical



breakthrough at FSU


By Barry Ray
FSU


"Build a better
mousetrap," the saying
goes, "and the world
will beat a path to your
door." In the complex
field of organic chem,
istry, that path leads to
Florida State
.: I University, where a
newly developed sub-
stance could make the
jobs of scientists
throughout the world a
little easier as they
work to develop hew
drugs and other chemi-
cals that benefit
humanity.
Photo: FSU Researchers from
Gregory B. Dudley the Dudley Laboratory
at FSU have invented a
reagent-a substance used in a chemical reaction to detect, measure,
examine or produce other substances-that can trap specific regions
of complex molecules in such a way that those molecules can be
released at a later time. This will allow scientists to perform complex
experiments involving chemical synthesis much more easily and
precisely.
"It isn't every day that one can put a new product on the mar-
ket," said Gregory B. Dudley, an assistant professor of chemistry


and biochemistry at FSU whose research lab bears his name.
"Even more exciting for me is the knowledge that scientific
breakthroughs in biomedical research and various other areas of
organic chemistry might be made possible as a result of this
reagent," Dudley said.
The Sigma-Aldrich Chemical Company has licensed Dudley's
patent-pending reagent from FSU and recently began. marketing it to
chemical research labs worldwide under the name "Bn-OPT"-short
for BeNzylOxyPyridinium Triflate. FSU will receive royalties from
Sigma-Aldrich in the amount of 5 percent of net sales of the reagent.
Bn-OPT is designed to be employed as part of what Dudley
refers to as "protecting group strategies" in organic synthesis. 2-
Benzyloxy-1-methylpyridinium trifluoromethanesulfonate-the
rather unwieldy chemical name for the new reagent-converts vul-
nerable hydroxy groups, also known as alcohols, into benzyl ethers
upon warming. These less-reactive benzyl ethers provide "protec-
tion" for alcohols during chemical synthesis. Bn-OPT emerged from
his lab's basic research in organic chemistry, and researchers now
are studying the reagent in search of new applications.
"Benzyl ethers have always played an important role in organic
chemistry, but their use has been limited by difficulties in preparing
them," Dudley said. "This reagent solves some of the problems asso-
ciated with making benzyl ethers."
Professor Joseph Schlenoff, the interim chairman of FSU's
department of chemistry and biochemistry, hailed Dudley as a young
educator whose work is helping others both in and out of the class-
room.
"Greg is one of our rising stars, both in teaching and research in
the area of synthetic organic chemistry," Schlenoff said. "His dis-
covery of this important new chemical reagent will bring significant
attention to our department and to the cutting-edge research that is
being conducted here."

companies place unauthorized charges on phone bills. Consumers
who are victimized by this practice are-often unaware that the extra
charges are being placed on their phone bills. Attorney General
McCollum cautioned consumers to examine their bills carefully
because extra charges are often difficult to distinguish.
Under the settlement agreement, the company will make resti-
tution to every consumer who was adversely affected by the compa-
ny's business practices and who submits a claims form, with resti-
tution expected to exceed $1 million. EDN will also prominently
disclose the monthly fee when it advertises on the internet, as well
as the consumers' obligation to cancel services to avoid being
charged. EDN will reimburse the state for the costs of the investiga-
tion.

FL. internet company to

reimburse customers
Attorney General Bill McCollum announced on Monday that a
Florida company that placed unauthorized charges on consumers'
phone bills will offer refunds to consumers and change its business
practices. Email Discount Network (EDN) charged more than
250,000 consumers nationwide a monthly fee for shopping coupons
and discounts the company advertised on the internet.
An investigation by the Attorney General's Economic Crimes
Division found consumers were unaware they were being charged
this monthly fee on their phone bills. The Attorney General's Office
filed a civil lawsuit against the company last September, claiming
EDN websites failed to clearly disclose that the offers for savings
were not free. Additionally, it was not made clear that customers
who-submitted personal information to the company would be
charged unless they contacted EDN to cancel the charges.
SThe case was one of many recent investigations by the Attorney
General's Office into a practice known as "cramming," in which

had the largest
growth rate, experi-
encing a whopping
76 percent increase
in its number of
households over the
,six-year period, from
21,294 to 37,522. It
was followed by
Sumter, Osceola,
Walton, St. Johns, St.

counties.
"These places
have cheaper land
and space to grow
compared to larger
counties like
Broward, where it's
harder to build sin-
gle-family homes
because they're run-
ning out of space,"
Cody said. "And as
the baby boomers get
older, they're not tied
as much to commut-
ing to work and can
live in communities
like the Villages in
Central Florida that
are farther away."
In sheer num-
bers, Miami-Dade
had the largest
increase, growing by
69,844 households
between 2000 and
2006. It was fol-
lowed by

With 260 miles of shoreline, St. Petersburg faces a
tough job to clean its coastal estuaries, bays and beach-
es. On Wednesday, an organization of environmentally
concerned citizens has stepped forward to help the city
clean its waterways by launching a specially designed
vessel dedicated to steward the city's shoreline.
During a press conference at St. Petersburg's
Demens Landing, the Green Armada launched the Miss
Mia, flying the Spirit of the City of St. Petersburg flag.
The Miss Mia is a 24-foot scow modified to safely
and effectively collect debris and trash in shallow waters.
The specialized vessel will patrol St. Petersburg's pub-
licly-owned water-
front areas removing
and disposing of an
estimated eight tons
of debris each month.
Green Armada
Foundation, Inc. stat-
ed that the Miss Mia
will be on the water a ,
minimum of 5 days a
week as this is a full-
time effort. .
The Green H
Armada is a not-for-
profit organization of

cerned citizens. It

grams.
There are negotiations underway to bring in four
more vessels for this area alone. The crew and vessels
meet all the requirements and safety regulations required
by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Mayor Rick Baker announced the new partnership,
which is the latest in a series of environmental initiatives
undertaken by the city in recent months.
'"St. Petersburg is surrounded on three sides by
water, a unique asset not shared by very many commu-


nities in our state and throughout the nation," said Mayor
Baker. "We must work together to preserve this asset,
and to safeguard the fragile eco-systems and native
wildlife that depend on our coastline. I'd like to thank
the Green Armada for introducing this beneficial service
to the city, and encourage all citizens to support this and
other environmentally-friendly efforts for the future of
St. Petersburg."
Earlier this year, the city was recognized by the state
of Florida as a Green City for its environment-friendly
practices in energy efficiency, recycling, tree-planting,
preservation of sensitive lands, and other programs. The
city also recently
completed a 15-year
effort to clean Lake
Maggiore, a 380-acre
lake in the heart of
St. Petersburg.
During the past three
years, crews have
dredged and removed

them about the questionable lending practices.
Urgent Office, formerly known as Cyber Cash,
operated several storefronts throughout Hillsborough
County and also conducted business with Floridians via
the website www.urgentoffice.com. Under the guise of
offering consumers a lease for office services including
copying, internet access, word processing or stationery,


the company lured customers in with the promise of cash
rebates that were paid upfront to consumers who signed
term contracts. Urgent Office required consumers to pay
installments every two weeks and charged exorbitant
interest rates often exceeding 300 percent.
Under today's agreement, consumers are eligible for
a full refund of money paid for contracts with Urgent
Office signed after November 6, 2006.
A limited fund of $100,000 has also been created to
'be administered by the Attorney General for refunds to
'eligible consumers who paid the exorbitant rates.
Additionally, the company must repay the state for costs
of its investigation, which was was conducted by the
Attorney General's Economic Crimes Division in coop-
eration with the Office of Financial Regulation of the
Florida Department of Financial Services, the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement and the State
Attorney's Office for the 13th Judicial Circuit.

Florida to have fewer



dairy farms, higher milk



production costs in 2007


By Tom Nordlie


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Florida's human
population is growing but the state has fewer dairy
farms and cows, according to University of Florida
researchers, who say retailers may need to rely
more on out-of-state milk in the summer and fall
when local supplies run dry.
Milk prices are also expected to rise slightly
this year, mostly due to increased demand, said
Russ Giesy, a UF dairy extension agent in
Bushnell. Giesy is co-author of Florida Dairy
Farm Situation and Outlook, an annual report that
compiles data from surveys of Florida dairy farm-
ers on revenues, expenses and investments. The
2007 report was issued today.
'The overall per-capita demand for milk has-
n't changed, but we have more residents," Giesy
said. "We need the Florida dairy industry to grow,
not retract, to
supply that
milk." p

report shows

has gradually
declined as
well, according to the Florida Agricultural
Statistics Service. Total production was down
from 2.46 billion pounds in 2000 to 2.27 billion
pounds in 2006.
About 86 percent of Florida-produced milk is
sold as drinking milk, the rest is used to make
cheese, butter and whey products, Giesy said.
The state's dwindling dairy herd is mainly the
result of smaller farms closing, he said. With land

property to developers, sometimes earning
$10,000 an acre, far more than the land is worth
for agricultural production.
'The larger dairy farms are the ones that need
more help (from UF) because they are implement-
ing new technologies and building new facilities,"
Giesy said.
"The cost of production in Florida is going up,
profit margins are getting narrower, which requires
that producers modify continuously to come up
with more efficient methods. These trends are true
everywhere in the country."
Production costs in Florida can run 25 percent
higher than the national average, said Albert De
Vries, a UF animal sciences assistant professor
and co-author of the report. A large part of the


extra expense is due to Florida's hot, humid cli-
mate, which reduces milk production unless cli-
mate-control technology is used. Feed costs are
also higher in Florida, because farmers use large
quantities of corn hauled from the Midwest.
"Corn is the big new looming issue," De Vries
said. "Corn prices are up, nearly double from last
year."
Demand for corn used to make ethanol fuel
has driven up demand for the grain used to feed
cows, and speculation has pushed prices higher,
Giesy said.
"It's hurting dairymen's wallets," he said.
"What always happens in agriculture is, someone
gets hurt, another had a great year. Corn farmers
are doing well."
Though production costs are rising, revenues
have not kept pace, the report said.
The average cost of producing 100 pounds of
milk in 1996 was $18.51, compared to $20.18 in
2005, accord-
ing to the
report. But

, according to an annual report De 2007 price for'
Florida farm-
ers is expected
to be about

Milk prices are determined partly by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture using a national supply
and demand model, so farmers do not have com-
plete freedom to adjust for increases in their pro-
duction costs.

income pei 100 pounds of milk declined, from

"There is quite i bit of variability in the
income farmers actually make," De Vries said.
"Some do much better than others. Because dairy
farmers cannot control milk prices, they have to
control their cost of production."
Florida consumers can help the state's farmers
stay in business by choosing locally produced
milk, he said, but it's not always easy to select.
Store brands tend to be locally produced but
that's not 100 percent certain, Giesy said.
"Consumers have to be astute," he said. "Your
best bet is to look at the fine print on the carton and
see where the milk was processed. Locally pro-
duced milk is likely fresher, so it will last longer in
your refrigerator."

UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Charging online
content providers such as Yahoo! and Google for
preferential access to the customers of Internet ser-
vice providers might not be in the best interest of
the millions of Americans, despite claims to the
contrary, a new University of Florida study finds.
"The conventional wisdom is that Internet ser-
vice providers would have greater incentive to
expand' their service capabilities if they were
allowed to charge," said Kenneth Cheng, a profes-
sor in UF's department of decision and informa-
tion sciences. "That was completely the opposite
of what we found."
The research discovered that cable and tele-
phone companies providing broadband to deliver
the content of companies such as Google and
SYahoo! are more likely to expand their infrastruc-
ture resulting in quicker loading and response
in a customer's personal computer if they don't
charge these companies for preferential treatment,
Cheng said.
The findings are timely because of industry
pressure on Congress to consider legislation that
would allow broadband service providers to give
preferential Internet service to online content
providers willing to pay a fee.
That would, in effect, end the current practice
of "net neutrality," he said.
"Abandoning net neutrality has far-reaching
Sand rippling effects when you consider how the
SInternet has become part of our daily life experi-
ence," said Subhajyoti Bandyopadhyay, a profes-


sor in UF's department of decision and informa-
tion sciences, who did the study with Cheng.
"If the broadband service providers are
allowed to charge the content providers, and my
favorite content provider does not happen to pay
my local broadband service provider, would I have
to switch favorites in order to have a faster Internet
experience?"
Not surprisingly, they found that broadband
service providers were the ones to gain the most
from ending net neutrality because they could col-
lect fees from content providers. The content
providers such as Yahoo! and Google, in turn,
would be the biggest losers.
Consumers will "win" if their favorite online
provider is the one paying a fee to the telephone or
cable company because it comes with a guarantee
that its site would have the opportunity to load
faster than its competitors, Cheng said.
But those consumers who prefer a content
provider that paid no such fee will "lose" in hav-
ing to endure slower service, he said.
More important, the researchers found that the
incentive for broadband service-providers to
expand and upgrade their service actually declines
if net neutrality ends.- "
Improving the infrastructure reduces the need
for online content providers to pay for preferential
treatment, Bandyopadhyay said.
"The whole purpose of charging for preferen-
tial treatment to content providers is that one con-
tent provider gains some edge over the other," he
said. "But when the capacity is expanded, this
advantage becomes negligible."

Cassini spacecraft



images seas on Saturn's



moon Titan

Instruments on NASA's Cassini
spacecraft have found evidence for
r seas, likely filled with liquid methane
Sor ethane, in the high northern lati-
tudes of Saturn's moon Titan. One
such feature is larger than any of the
Great Lakes of North America and is
about the same size as several seas on
e Earth.
Cassini's radar instrument
imaged several very dark features
near Titan's north pole. Much larger
Than similar features seen before on
STitan, the largest dark feature mea-
sures at least 100,000 square kilome-
A comparison view of a lake on Titan and Lake Superior. sure at least 100,000 square milomee
ters (39,000 square miles). Since the
radar has caught only a portion of
each of these features, only their minimum size is known. Titan is the second largest moon in the solar
system and is about 50 percent larger than Earth's moon."We've long hypothesized about oceans on
Titan and now with multiple instruments we have a first indication of seas that dwarf the lakes seen pre-
viously," said Dr. Jonathan Lunine, Cassini interdisciplinary scientist at the University of Arizona,
Tucson.
While there is no definitive proof yet that these seas contain liquid, their shape, their dark appear-
ance in radar that indicates smoothness, and their other properties point to the presence of liquids. The
liquids are probably a combination of methane and ethane, given the conditions on Titan and the abun-
dance of methane and ethane gases and clouds in Titan's atmosphere.
Cassini's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer also, captured a view of the region, and the team
is working to determine the composition of the material contained within these features to test the
hypothesis that they are liquid-
filled.
The imaging cameras, which
provide a global view of Titan, have
imaged a much larger, irregular dark
feature. The northern end of their 1s
image corresponds to one of the
radar-imaged seas. The dark area
stretches for more than 1,000 kilo- 4
meters (620 miles) in the image,
down to 55 degrees north latitude. If
the entire dark area is liquid-filled, it
would be only slightly smaller than .,,
Earth's Caspian Sea. The radar data
show details at the northern end of ', ,' II -

will require investigation through
additional radar flyovers later in the mission.
The presence of these seas reinforces current thinking that Titan's surface must be re-supplying
methane to its atmosphere, the original motivation almost a quarter century ago for the theoretical spec-
ulation of a global ocean on Titan.
Cassini's instruments are peeling back the haze that shrouds Titan, showing high northern latitudes
dotted with seas hundreds of miles across, and hundreds of smaller lakes that vary from several to tens
of miles.
Due to the new discoveries- team members are re-pointing Cassini's radar instrument during a May
flyby so i can pass directly ovir the di:' areas imaged by the cameras.




Suspicious minds:



researcher documents



consumers' skepticism


By Barry Ray
FSU
"This jacket makes you look 20 pounds
lighter!" "These shoes go perfectly with your
skirt!" "Lime green is really your color!" Sales
pitches such as these can be heard every day in just
about any mall in the United States.
However, such ploys likely do little to clinch
a sale-and may, in fact, create negative percep-
tions among shoppers, says Peter Darke, an assis-
tant professor in the

department of market-
ing of Florida State
University's FSU
College of Business.
"Consumers today
look at everything with
a skeptical eye," Darke
said. "Before they even
set foot in a store, they
already are inclined to
I mistrust the use of flat-
) i tery by salespeople, as
n,,,:, ii.i well as claims made in
FSU researcher Peter ads they've seen in the
Darke media."
With colleagues
Darren Dahl of the University of British Columbia
and Kelley Main of York University, Darke
cowrote "Deliberative and Automatic Bases of
Suspicion: Empirical Evidence of the Sinister
Attribution Error," a paper that examines the reac-
tions of consumers to flattery from store clerks.
The paper, just published in the Journal of
Consumer Psychology, explores whether con-
sumers decide a salesperson is untrustworthy
through a deliberate or an automatic decision-
making process.
To gather data, the researchers ran three
experiments that involved consumers buying sun-
glasses at a sales kiosk. Of the 102 study partici-
pants, 37 were male and 65 female.
In the first experiment, sales clerks flattered
consumers before their purchase. During the sec-
ond, sales clerks flattered consumers after their
purchase. In both instances, they used three state-
ments:
"That's a great pair of sunglasses."


"I think they look good on you."
"They really suit you."
With the third experiment-which acted as a
control-sales clerks chatted with consumers but
didn't offer any flattery.
After'buying a pair of sunglasses, participants
then completed a questionnaire that asked how
trustworthy they found the sales clerk.
"Consistently, the study participants said that
even when it was obvious the compliment didn't
serve any landerlying sales motive, they still didn't
trust what the sales clerk had to say," Darke said.
Such suspicion of others' motives is typical in
a society that is absolutely drowning in marketing
campaigns and sales pitches, he said.
"Generally speaking, it has become the con-
sumer's default position to react negatively to what
is perceived as an attempt to manipulate him or
her," Darke said. "Even when there isn't an obvi-
ous motive for a salesperson's flattery, such as gen-
erating a sale, we are programmed to assume the
worst."
And speaking of consumer skepticism, Darke
has published a second paper that shows how
deceptive advertisements can have the effect of
making consumers cynical about all advertising,
not just the ones making false claims.
With colleague Robin J.B. Ritchie of the
University of Western Ontario in Canada, Darke
cowrote "The Defensive Consumer: Advertising
Deception, Defensive Processing, and Distrust",
which shows how deceptive advertising engenders
distrust that negatively affects people's responses
to subsequent advertising from both the same
source and other sources. The paper, just published
in the Journal of Marketing Research, indicates
that the negative effects of ad deception are rela-
tively long-lasting in the sense that they are
observed for additional advertisements encoun-
tered 24 hours after the initial deception.
"Deceptive ads induce negative beliefs about
advertising and marketing in general, thereby
undermining the credibility of further advertising,"
Darke said. "For companies that advertise, the les-
son is clear: They must do a better job of guaran-
teeing the accuracy of their own and others mar-
keters' advertising content if they want consumers
to keep paying attention."
