Space Crew Takes


Care of Business
Two International Space Station crew members Monday suc-
cessfully wrapped up a 7-hour, 41-minute spacewalk that saw the
removal and jettison of a refrigerator-size ammonia reservoir.
The spacewalk from the Quest Airlock ended at 2:06 p.m. EDT.
Astronaut Clay Anderson was the lead spacewalker, 'EV1. Fyodor
Yurchikhin, the cosmonaut and station commander was EV2.
Cosmonaut Oleg Kotov operated the Canadarm2 from the U.S. labo-
ratory Destiny.
The spacewalkers took it from an external stowage platform and
installed it on the Earth-facing side of the station's main truss at the
interface Starboard 0-Port 1 (SO-P1) truss segments.
Next they moved to separate tasks. Anderson reconfigured a
power supply for an S-Band Antenna Assembly, and then set up and
got on a foot restraint at the end of Canadarm2. Yurchikhin. replaced
a circuit breaker, called a remote power controller module. It ensures
power redundancy for a move of the Mobile Transporter rail car on
the station's truss.
Back together, Anderson and Yurchikhin removed flight support
equipment, where the camera stanchion had been mounted, and an
attached Flight Releasable Attachment Mechanism. Together they
have a mass of about 212 pounds.
While Anderson jettisoned them from the end of the arm,
Yurchikhin moved to the Z1 truss, where he disconnected and stowed
cabling associated with the ammonia reservoir, called the Early
Ammonia Servicer (EAS).
The EAS was installed on the P6 truss during STS-105 in August
2001, as an ammonia replenishment reservoir if a leak had occurred.
It was never used, and was no longer needed after the permanent
cooling system was activated last December. The EAS has to be
removed before the P6 truss can be moved to the end of the station's
main truss.
With Anderson still on the arm, both crew members moved to the
P6 Truss and released its remaining connections to the station. Once
it was free, Anderson held the EAS while the arm maneuvered him to
the jettison point, below the right side of the ISS main truss.
The EAS weighs a little over 1,400 pounds on Earth. The jettison was
much like that of the stan,:hion equipment. Anderson shoved the EAS
opposite the station's direction of travel.
A subsequent reboost by Russian thrusters changes the station's
orbit to provide clearance from the EAS. The reboost also prepares

Gulf-to-Bay Tax Collector

Office to Temporarily

Close August First
CLEARWATER The Pinellas County Tax Collector Office at
1663 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd., Clearwater, will temporarily close at 1 p.m.
on Wednesday, Aug. 1, for what is planned to be a four-week renova-
tion.
"We are building efficiencies and better customer service," said
Pinellas Tax Collector Diane Nelson. "We are continuing our long-
range partnership with the Florida Department of Highway Safety &
Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to reduce state budgets by transferring
driver license responsibilities to County Tax Collectors. We are
adding more driver license services and a safer place for the public
and employees at this Clearwater location."
When the Gulf-to-Bay Office re-opens, it will add driver licens-
ing road tests to its. list of services which will raise the total number
of Pinellas Tax Collector offices offering this service from three to
four. Presehtly, full driver licensing services are available at these
three locations: Tarpon Springs, 743 S. Pinellas Ave.; Mid-County,
13025 Starkey Road, Largo; Skyway, 1067 62nd Ave. S., St.
Petersburg. Adding a central Clearwater location will give Pinellas
motorists more convenient access throughout the county and spread
the work load for better customer service for all.
The Pinellas Tax Collector processed 365,000 driver license
transactions in 2006, which was two out of every three issued in
Pinellas last year.
"Convenience to the public is our first consideration. We apolo-
gize and appreciate our customers' patience during the temporary
closing," said Nelson's Licensing & Services Department head,
Deputy Tillie Blocker. "Our business statistics show this is the slow-
est time of year and the best time to do this. The Gulf-to-Bay
employees will relocate in the interim, in some cases to be trained for
the expanded driver license services, and in others to boost staff lev-
els at the other offices."
The Gulf-to-Bay Office was the most popular with the public in
2006 with a 98.89 percent customer satisfaction rating and received a
'World-Class Service' award in last February's Tax Collector county-
wide competition.
Motorists who must make a walk-in visit during the renovation
are encouraged to use the North County office at 29399 U.S. 19 N.,
Clearwater, or the Mid-County Service Center at 13025 Starkey
Road, Largo. Most of the routine services can be handled by calling
the e-Service Center at (727) 562-3262 or by visiting the Tax
Collector's website at www.taxcollect.com

Falling back into favor
by Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D.
"Anyone who is popular is bound to be disliked," Yogi Berra
once observed. By his definition, the United States is very popular
these days.
Since 2002, "the image of the United States has declined in
most parts of the world," according to the latest Pew Global
Attitudes survey. "Favorable ratings of America are lower in 26 of
33 countries for which trends are available." The numbers have
dropped even among many of our traditional allies. For example, 13
percent of Britons now hold a "very unfavorable" view of the United
States.
Such findings always generate much gnashing of teeth. But
instead of pointing the finger at the usual suspects, let's consider a
few ways we can boost our reputation.
Asia, which I recently visited, offers one solution. We remain
popular there; 58 percent of South Koreans have a positive view of
the U.S. -- a number exceeded in Japan and India. But even in Asia,
we're in danger of pushing our allies away.
One distancing issue is free trade. In' April, Korean and
American negotiators shook hands on an agreement that would be
the biggest trade deal since the North American Free Trade
Agreement. The new agreement was designed to open South Korea's
markets and reduce that country's growing dependence on trade with
China. Meanwhile, it would lock in critical Korean economic
reforms, possibly even giving it a competitive advantage over
regional rivals China and Japan. So far, so good.
But U.S. officials didn't leave well enough alone. In June they
reopened talks in an attempt to add stricter environmental and labor
guidelines being pushed by congressional Democrats. Worse, the
new talks went forward under pressure -- any deal had to be final-
ized before June 30, when President Bush's Trade Promotion
Authority expired.
At the last moment, the Koreans yielded. So, if lawmakers in
both countries approve it, this trade deal should pay big dividends.
But our behavior still made a bad impression. The Korean negotia-
tors won't soon forget the U.S. was ready to put an entire agreement
at risk to squeeze out a few more concessions.
The U.S. also needs to do a better job of welcoming our allies.
Almost 100,000 Korean students study here, for example. But it's
not as simple as it ought to be for them to visit. They must wait in
long lines to obtain visas, a step most citizens of friendly, countries
(Britain, France, Germany, etc.) avoid because of the popular Visa
Waiver program.
South Korea doesn't qualify for Visa Waiver because it falls
short on a technicality. President Bush is said to be considering
adding it to the program, as long as Seoul is willing to deploy an
electronic passport system and increase its cooperation with
American law enforcement officials. We also should expand the pro-
gram by welcoming Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and, if
they qualify, the Baltic States.
Finally, look to North Korea. The U.S. assured our allies we
would do whatever was necessary to prevent Pyongyang from devel-
oping nuclear weapons. Yet we recently released some $25 million
in frozen North Korean funds. We should have held on to that money
until North Korea shut down its nuclear reactor. The reactor report-
edly was shut down but all we have is a promise it will remain so.
Winning a global popularity contest may not top our list of pri-
orities. But if we can enhance our reputation through a few simple'
steps -- such as keeping our word and not treating our friends as if
they're suspects -- why not take them?

FSU Researcher Studies Harry



Potter's Hold on Young Readers


By: John Rogers, FSU
The July 21st release of Harry Potter and the
marked the magic moment for millions of Harry P
wide. The seventh and final book in the wildly popu
the end of a literary global phenomenon.
At Florida State University, a graduate
student is researching how the Harry Potter
series has enchanted young readers over the
years. Colette Drouillard, a doctoral student
in FSU's College of Information, is asking
young .people about their experiences of
growing up with the boy hero and docu-
menting how they influenced their desire to
read.
"I will be looking for a sample of read-
ers between 19 and 23 who began reading
the stories as they were first released some-
where around 1998 or '99, and continued to -
read along as the stories progress as they
were released," Drouillard said. "It's the one
group that has the opportunity to discuss
how the fact that the character was approxi-
mately the same age as they may have
impacted their motivation to read."
Since the first Harry Potter book was
published in the United Kingdom back in
1997, the adventures of the young wizard
who saves Hogwarts, his magical school, from all
have become a fixture in the pop culture landscape.

The books aren't always a child-sized read; some contain more
than 800 pages of action-packed adventure. In fact, they have cap-
tured the eye of scholars as well as students.
"There have been many academic studies-about 200--on


Harry Potter," said FSU College of Information

children's literacy and is herself an expert on the

and that's where Drouillard finds her research

"It's a unique opportunity to speak with read-

back and try to recall when you were 9 and read
the book the first time, why did you feel motivat-
ed to read Book 2, and what motivated you to
continue reading," she said.
While Drouillard looks for the motivation of
young readers, her own Harry Potter prowess
pales in comparison to the kind of fans she met at

Industry Leaders Gather To Double trouble:
I Hopelessness Key



Promote Renewable Energy Component of Mood

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services "I think by bringing together the best minds from the various D disorder


Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is continuing to move forward
with his efforts to promote the production of renewable energy in
Florida, including ethanol made from agriculture waste and other
woody products.
,B-ronson kicked off the 2007 Farm to Fuel Sunmiit 6n Thursday,
July 19 to bring together hundreds of industry leaders in agriculture,
petroleum, academia, financial institutions and the government who
want to make Florida a leader in the production of renewable energy.
Florida Governor Charlie Crist was the keynote speaker
Thursday morning. Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink also spoke
The summit included presentations on such topics as "Cellulosic
Ethanol" and "Biofuels for Consumers".
"The public wants and deserves po have access to reasonably
priced fuels that do not harm the environment," Bronson said. "The
technology exists to.produce clean, alternative fuel and this confer-
ence will bring together all the stakeholders so we can continue the
momentum. We can reduce our dependence on foreign oil while at
the same time providing another source of income for our struggling
farmers."
Participants heard about where Florida currently stands with
alternative fuel production facilities, the latest production technolo-
gies and presented ideas for the future direction renewable fuels in
this state.


industries that can make that happen, Florida can be a model for
other states to follow," Bronson said.
Bronson also recognized an award winning middle school stu-
dent for her achievements in energy projects. As an elementary stu-
dent'and as'a'seventh grader at Jefferson Middle School in Merritt
Island,' EriRi McCaskey has won 9 awards, including one from the
Navy and first place in the junior division of the Florida Engineering
Foundation Annual State Science Engineering Fair.
"Erin exemplifies the direction our state is heading in energy
production," Bronson said. "Alternative fuels are the energy of the
future and young people like Erin will help carry this vision into the
future."
The 2007 Farm to Fuel Summit followed a Florida Energy
Commission meeting that was held at the same location on
Wednesday, July 18 at the St. Petersburg Florida Marriott
Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club. The summit closed on
Friday with a roundtable discussion on Florida's energy future with
key policymakers and with an appearance by Florida Congressman
Tim Mahoney. For more information about the Farm to Fuel Summit

NASA Robots Practice Moon




Survey in Arctic Circle


MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. Two
NASA robots are surveying a rocky, isolated
polar desert within a crater in the Arctic
Circle. The study will help scientists learn
how robots could evaluate potential outposts
on the moon or Mars.
The robots, K10 Black and K10 Red,
carry 3-D laser scanners and ground-pene-
trating radar. The team arrived at Haughton
Crater at Devon Island, Canada, on July 12
and will operate the machines until July 31.
Scientists chose the polar region because of
the extreme environmental conditions, lack
of infrastructure and resources, and geologic
features. Additionally, Haughton Crater is
geographically similar to Shackleton Crater
at the South Pole of the moon. Both are
impact craters that measure roughly 12.4
miles in diameter.
"We are learning about the awesome
potential of human and robot teams," said S.
Pete Worden, director of NASA's Ames
Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.,
where the group conducting the survey is
based. "Studying how humans and robots
can maximize scientific returns in sites such
as Devon Island will prepare us to walk on
the moon and Mars."
NASA is planning to send astronauts
back to the moon by 2020. Prior to establish-
ing a lunar outpost, the agency must conduct
detailed surveys at a variety of locations to


produce maps, look for minerals and water,
and learn other details. NASA plans to
accomplish its surveys with an automated
orbiting spacecraft, not a robotic lander, but
the agency still has a keen interest in advanc-
ing the laser scanning technology.
Most of the lunar sites are on harsh terrain
and in permanently shadowed areas. It is not
unusual for site surveys to require thousands
of measurements and hundreds of hours to
complete. A robot can reduce mission cost
and improve mission effectiveness by allow-
ing ground control to conduct surveying
tasks.
"A typical scenario involves multiple
rovers autonomously surveying a region
while humans supervise and assess data from
a remote location," said Terry Fong, director
of the Intelligent Robots Group at Ames.
The robots are using different techniques
than the goal-directed traverses and isolated
sampling tasks that Mars scientific rovers
have used to explore the Red Planet. K10
Black and K10 Red are using a mix of infor-
mation previously obtained by aerial and
satellite imaging and data that the robot sur-
vey team is gathering.
The 3-D laser scanner can map topo-
graphic features as far as 3,280 feet away.
The ground-penetrating radar, which
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, Calif., developed, can map below


ground as deep as 16.4 feet.
"The robots are covering the area in lawn-
mower-like paths at human walking speeds
to systematically map above and below
ground," said Fong.
The practice survey in Haughton Crater
is taking place at an area called Drill Hill.
The robots are covering approximately 120
acres of terrain. Researchers are command-
ing the robots remotely from the Haughton-
Mars base camp more than two miles away
from Drill Hill.
The robots navigate using the Global
Positioning System, stereo cameras, laser
scanners and sun trackers. Each of the four-
wheel-drive machines weighs 165 pounds
and can carry a payload up to 110 pounds.
A key objective of the Drill Hill survey is to
test the instruments and software on the
robots as well as the equipment and software
that humans will use at lunar outposts and
ground control to supervise the robots.
Engineers at NASA's Johnson Space Center
in Houston will assess advanced robot driv-
ing techniques using a multi-screen cockpit.
Ames will test software that makes high-res-
olution maps for interactive display in 3-D.

Development Program sponsors the robotic
site survey at Haughton Crater.

There's depression, and theft
there's double depression.
Sound bad? It is, according
to Thomas Joiner, Florida State
University Distinguished
Research Professor and the
Bright-Burton Professor of
Psychology, who has identified
hopelessness as a distinguishing
feature of double depression in a
new paper published in the
Journal of Affective Disorders.
The finding could help therapists
diagnose and treat the mood dis-
order.
Double depression occurs
when an individual who suffers
from dysthymia, a persistent case
of mild depression marked by
low energy, falls into a major
depressive state. It is not a new
concept, but psychologists know
little about the characteristics
that distinguish double depres-
sion from dysthymia or major
depression alone, according to
Joiner.
"It's clinically important
because it is under-recognized
and harder to treat than either
dysthymia or major depression
by themselves," Joiner said. "The
hopelessness result is significant,
and it suggests that therapists
should especially focus on this
feature early and often in the
treatment of double-depressed
patients."
Joiner, along with FSU doc-
toral student Kathryn Gordon,
Joan Cook from the Veterans
Affairs Medical Center in
Philadelphia and Michel Herson
from Pacific University in
Oregon, studied the psychologi-
cal assessments of 54 adults who
entered a community-based psy-
chiatric outpatient facility for
non-psychotic adults ages 55 and
older. Questionnaires were given
to patients before starting treat-
ment to measure depression,
hopelessness, anxiety and their
sense of control over their own
lives.
They found that double-
depressed patients had high lev-
els of hopelessness, whereas
patients with either major
depression or dysthymia alone
showed more moderate levels of
hopelessness.


"A patient who is hopeless
has really just given up," Joiner
said. "They feel that the world is
against them, the future is bleak
and they are incapable of fight-
ing back.
"This entrenched sense of
hopelessness is one likely reason
why double depression is so hard
to treat, according to Joiner. The
chronic nature of the underlying
dysthymia is another.
"Any chronic condition is
harder to treat than a less chron-
ic one, and that is true for med-
ical and psychiatric conditions


priolij courlery Florida Sialal
University
Researcher Thomas Joiner, PHD
alike," he said. "Second, people
with dysthymia come to view
depression as just part of who
they are, and so they don't come
in to treatment as often, even
when they dip down into a major
depression. When they do come
in, issues of'motivation to do the
treatment are common."
In addition to differences in
the level of hopelessness, the
researchers found that people
with dysthymia alone and those
with double depression felt little
control over their own lives.
People with these conditions felt
that external forces-other peo-
ple or fate-determined their
future. Those suffering from
major depression alone did not
have this characteristic.
Joiner cautioned that the
study's findings must be inter-
preted in light of the study's lim-
itations, namely its small sample
size. Still, the results could have
important implications for treat-
ment of double depression.
Cognitive therapy, which focuses
on changing negative thinking
patterns, and antidepressant
drugs are particularly helpful in
treating symptoms of hopeless-
ness and perceptions of a lack of
control over one's own life, he
said.

Blueprint for "Smart"




Health Care


By: Aaron Hoover, University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Always on, con-
nected, cheap and on sale everywhere.
What people have come to expect in cell
phones and personal communicators may
soon become common in health-care devices
and products at home and in medical offices,
thanks to new technology announced today
by the University of Florida and IBM.
The technology creates the first-ever
roadmap for widespread commercial devel-
opment of "smart" devices that, for example,
take a person's blood pressure, temperature
or respiration rate the minute a person steps
into his or her house then transmit it imme-
diately and automatically to doctors or fami-
ly.
That could eliminate the need for many
doctor's visits, which are often difficult for
the elderly or sick. By enabling regular
updates via text message or e-mail, the tech-
nology also could pave the way for people to
share real-time information on their health or
well-being with absent loved ones. And it
could prove useful for doctors who need to
keep tabs on many patients at one time by
helping the doctors to prioritize whom to
treat first.
"We call it quality-of-life engineering,"
said Sumi Helal, professor of computer engi-
neering and the project's lead UF researcher.
"It's really a change of mindset."
The idea of using technology to provide
medical care at a distance is nothing new.
Doctors have relied on telemedicinee" to
communicate with specialists for years. More
recently, telemedicine has been expanded to
include, for example, surgeons performing
robotic procedures on distant patients. ,
But the UF-IBM advance goes a step
further: It provides the technological
"stepstones" to make it easy for any compa-
ny to manufacture and sell smart networked
devices while also making them more
user-friendly for consumers.
"UF and IBM both see the need and the
opportunity to integrate the physical world of
sensors and other devices directly into enter-
prise systems," said Richard Bakalar, Chief
Medical Officer for IBM. "Doing so in an
open environment will remove market
inhibitors that impede innovation in critical
industries like health care and open a broad-
er device market that's fueled by uninterrupt-
ed networking."
Helal has devoted the past several years
to developing smart devices for the elderly in
a model home known as the "Gator Tech
Smart Home" in Gainesville.
He and his students pioneered the
"Smart Wave" microwave oven that can auto-
matically determine how much time to cook


a frozen meal or keep track of how much salt
it contains. Among other devices, they also
created an instrument that records how many
steps a person takes, information that can tell
absent caregivers how active its occupants
are.
But these and other devices currently
have a major shortcoming: They require "a
team of engineers" to install them, Helal
said. In a world where consumers are accus-
tomed to electronics that require no more
than a power outlet, that dramatically limits
their appeal. "We decided to create a technol-
ogy that self integrates," Helal said. "When
you bring it in to the house and plug it in, it
automatically provides its service and finds a
path to the outside world."
With $60,000 in research funding from
IBM, Helal designed middlewaree," or soft-
ware and hardware that glues together differ-
ent systems, that can give his and any similar
health-aid devices this independence and
connectivity. Importantly, the software is
based on open standards, or publicly avail-
able specifications useable by anyone, such
as those now being made available by con-
sortiums of technology companies including
Eclipse, W3C and OSGi.
Open standards make it easy for product
developers to tap the technology in any new
smart assistive devices, Helal said. That, in
turn, will make the devices more common.
The hardware component of the system
is an inexpensive sensor platform about half
the size of a business card. Developed at UF
and licensed to Pervasa, a Gainesville-based
UF spinoff company headed by. Helal, the
"Atlas" platform makes it easy to create a
network of sensors and make their informa-
tion available on a computer network.
The advance is crucial given the increas-
ing number of elderly Americans. The num-
ber of people 85 and over is expected to rise
from 4.2 million in 2000 to 6.1 million in
2010 and 9.6 million by 2030, according to
federal government statistics. Meanwhile,
the percentage of older Americans living
alone will either remain high or continue to
grow: About half of women and nearly a
quarter of men aged 75 and older currently
live alone.
But the :UF-IBM techhnoloAgy ima\ also
prove useful in many other medical settings.
For example, Helal said, it could help emer-
gency rooms operate more safely. Rather
than a standard waiting list, patients could be
equipped with networked wireless monitors
of their vital signs, allowing doctors to deter-
mine who in a waiting room needs the most
immediate care.


SPACEWALK continued from page 1


for the Aug. 2 launch of the Progress 26 cargo carrier and
the Aug. 7 launch of Discovery to the station.
The final spacewalk task was cleaning the Earth-fac-
ing docking port,of the Unity node. That was done to pre-
pare for the relocation of Pressurized Mating Adapter-3
(PMA-3), scheduled for late August.
The move is being made to clear the PMA-3's pres-
ent position, on the starboard CBM of Unity, for a series
of events that will culminate with the arrival of the
Harmony node and its preparation to receive future space
shuttles.


Crew members completed three get-ahead tasks.
They removed an auxiliary equipment bag from the P6
Truss and attached it to the Z1 Truss.
They. also removed a malfunctioning Global
Positioning System antenna on the SO Truss and released
bolts on two fluid trays attached to the SO. The trays are
to be installed on Node 2, the Harmony node, during
STS-120 this fall.
After cleanup Anderson and Yurchikhin re-entered
Quest and concluded the spacewalk. It was the first
spacewalk for Anderson and the third for Yurchikhin.

McCollum Issues


Subpoenas to


Prepaid Calling


Card Industry

TALLAHASSEE Concerned about
questionable marketing tactics employed by
companies selling prepaid calling cards,
Attorney General Bill McCollum today
announced that his office has launched a for-
mal investigation into several entities in the
prepaid calling card industry including multi-
ple distributors and service providers. The
investigation will work to identify prepaid
calling card providers and examine their mar-
keting practices which have been called into
question as deceptive or deliberately fraudu-
lent.
"Calling cards make it possible for our
citizens to maintain essential lines of commu-
nication with their family and loved ones,"
said Attorney General McCollum. "I am
deeply concerned about the fraudulent behav-
ior alleged in this industry and my office will
aggressively address this issue on behalf of
our state's residents and guests."
A series of subpoenas, served today by
the Attorney General's Economic Crimes
Division, seek information related to poten-
tially fraudulent advertisements on posters
and over the airwaves about the number of
minutes provided on various cards. A particu-
lar focus of the investigation will concentrate
on the marketing of the calling cards to indi-
viduals who don't speak or read English and
are trying to call other countries to reach their
relatives or friends.
The investigation will examine the alle-
gations that immediately after the first call is
made on a card, companies begin deducting
various fees, service charges, taxes, and in
some cases, round call times up in three
minute increments so that the stated minutes
are not available. In many cases these fees,
service charges and other terms and condi-
tions of card usage are not disclosed, or are
disclosed only in English on Spanish lan-
guage posters and cards.
The Attorney General's Office encour-
aged Floridians who believe they might have
been victimized by unfair practices when pur-
chasing and using prepaid calling cards to
contact the Attorney General's fraud hotline at
1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226) or file

GOVERNOR CRIST


SIGNS TOBACCO


EDUCATION


LEGISLATION


TALLAHASSEE Governor Charlie Crist today ceremonially
signed Senate Bill 1126. The legislation enacts funding to implement
Amendment 4 and establishes a statewide tobacco education and use
prevention program. Governor Crist also announced four appoint-
ments to the Tobacco Education and Use Prevention Advisory
Council. Florida State Surgeon General Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H., joined Governor Crist for the bill signing ceremony.
"This program is critically important as we strive to make all
Floridians aware of the dangerous health risks associated with the use
of tobacco," said Governor Crist. "By teaching our children about
these risks early, we are taking the steps necessary to protect the
health of future generations of Floridians."
On November 7, 2006, Florida voters adopted Amendment 4,
creating the Comprehensive Statewide Tobacco Education and
Prevention Program as Section 27 of Article X of the State
Constitution. Senate Bill 1126 Statewide Tobacco Education &
Prevention, establishes the program within the Florida Department of
Health.
"The people of Florida made their voices heard by voting for this
Constitutional Amendment, and I am grateful to the Florida
Legislature for putting the people's will into practice," said Governor
Crist.
The tobacco education and prevention program includes an
advertising campaign to educate Floridians about tobacco and dis-
courage their use of it. The program will include local community-
based partnerships and will monitor the enforcement of laws, regula-
tions and policies against the sale of tobacco to minors and the pos-
session of tobacco by minors. The bill requires the program to con-
form to best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention and to publicly report annual evaluations.
"Florida has a long-standing history in tobacco prevention efforts
and this tobacco education legislation helps us further our concerted
effort to prevent and reduce tobacco use" said Dr. Viamonte Ros. "I
am confident this will yield enormous benefits to public health,
including fewer tobacco-related diseases and reduce health care costs
in the long term a very worthy investment."
The program is funded by 15 percent of the total amount the
tobacco companies paid to the State of Florida in 2005 under the
Tobacco Settlement. In the 2007 session, the Legislature appropriat-
ed $57,898,788.00 for the program.
Tobacco Education and Use Prevention Advisory Council
Senate Bill 1126 creates a 23-member advisory council to make
recommendations and to evaluate the program's outcomes. Statutory
members of the advisory council include:
Four members appointed by the Governor. Two members
appointed by the President of the Senate. Two members appointed by
the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The Secretary of the
Department of Health, who serves as the chairperson and Two mem-
bers appointed by the Commissioner of Education.
And one county health department director, appointed by the
Secretary of Health.
Chief executive officers of the Florida Division of the American
Cancer Society, the Greater Southeast Affiliate of the American Heart
Association, the American Lung Association of Florida, the
Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids and Legacy Foundation
Deans of the University of Miami School of Medicine, the University
of Florida College of Medicine, University of South Florida College
of Medicine, Florida State University College of Medicine, Nova
Southeastern College of Osteopathic Medicine and Lake Erie College
of Osteopathic Medicine.
Gubernatorial Appointments to the Tobacco Education and Use
Prevention Advisory Council announced today are as follows:
Steven Hougland, 47, of Tallahassee, director of the Division of
Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, Florida Department of Business
and Professional Regulation, appointed for a term beginning July 25,
2007, and ending June 30, 2010.
Robin Peters, 46, of Tallahassee, director of Prevention, Florida
Office of Drug Control, appointed for a term beginning July 25, 2007,
and ending June 30, 2010.
Erin Sylvester, 19, of Panama City, student at Florida State
University, appointed for a term beginning July 25, 2007, and ending
June 30, 2010.
Mae Waters, 70, of Tallahassee, research associate and project
manager, Florida State University, appointed for a term beginning
July 25, 2007, and ending June 30, 2010.


Florida State University has been awarded a grant through the
National Science Foundation with a total request of $2.6 million. The
funds will be used to study the effects of the Southern Ocean-the
ocean surrounding Antarctica--on the Earth's climate.
In announcing the award, U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd, D-North
Florida, said, "The
commitment of the
federal government to
fund research at FSU
recognizes the high-
quality work and
research that is under
way at the university.
The potential of scien-
tific research knows
no bounds.
"Now, more than
ever," Boyd contin-
ued, "we must support
a robust research
effort to advance our
understanding of cli-
mate change, and I
applaud FSU for
being at the forefront
of this issue."
The project is
titled "Collaborative
Research: DIMES, A satellite photo of Antarctica and the S
Diapycnal and
Isopycnal Mixing in
the Southern Ocean." Graduate and undergraduate students at FSU
and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, located at the
University of California, San Diego, will take part in the research.
"DIMES is an exciting project to measure the nature of deep


GAINESVILLE Imagine a chip, strategically placed in the
brain that could prevent epileptic seizures or allow someone who has
lost a limb to control an artificial arm just by thinking about it.
It may sound like science fiction, but University of Florida
researchers are developing devices that can interpret signals in the
brain and stimulate neurons to perform correctly, advances that might
someday make it possible for a tiny computer to fix diseases or even
allow a paralyzed person to control a prosthetic device with his
thoughts.
Armed with a $2.5 million grant they received this year from the
National Institutes of Health, UF researchers from the College of
Medicine, the College of Engineering and the McKnight Brain
Institute have teamed up to create a "neuroprosthetic" chip designed
to be implanted in the brain. They are currently studying the concept
in rats but are aiming to develop a prototype of the device within the
next four years that could be tested in people.
The initial goal? To correct conditions such as paralysis or
epilepsy.
"We really feel like if we can do this, we'll have the technology
to offer new options for patients," said Justin Sanchez, director of the
UF Neuroprosthetics Research Group and an assistant professor of
pediatric neurology, neuroscience and biomedical engineering.
"There's kind of a revolution going on right now in the neuroscience
and biomedical engineering. People are trying to take engineering
approaches for directly interfacing with the brain.
"The hope is we can cure more immediately a variety of dis-
eases."
Researchers have been able to decode brain activity for years
using electroencephalography. Referred to commonly as an EEG, this
technology involves placing a sensor-wired net over the head to
measure brain activity through the scalp. But the technology wasn't
quite sensitive enough to allow researchers to decode brain signals as
precisely as needed, Sanchez said. Now researchers are focusing on
decoding signals from electrodes placed directly into the brain tissue
using wires the width of a strand of hair.
"(Scientists have) realized that by going inside the brain we can

capture so much more information, we can have much more resolu-
tion," Sanchez said.
The chip UF researchers are seeking to develop would be
implanted directly into the brain tissue, where it could gather data
from signals, decode them and stimulate the brain in a self-contained
package without wires. In the interim, UF researchers are studying
implantable devices in rats and are evaluating an intermediate form of
the technology placing electrodes on the surface of the brain in
people.
UF researchers have developed new techniques using surface
electrodes to access signals almost as precisely as they could with
sensors implanted in the brain, according to findings the researchers
published in May in the Journal of Neuroscience Methods.
Developing these techniques is a big step forward in understanding
how to best decode a patient's intent from their brain waves and
should have broad implications for delivering therapy, Sanchez said.
To gather data about the brain's sophisticated cues, which vary
from person to person, Sanchez studies the brain signals of children
with epilepsy who are scheduled to undergo surgery to remove the
part of the brain that is causing seizures. These patients often must be
monitored for several days to weeks with electrodes placed directly
on the brain. Doctors use this to pinpoint the problem area when a
child has another seizure.
Because the children already have electrodes in place, Sanchez is
able to use the data gathered from them to understand more about the
brain's signals in general.
UF researchers are also working on intermediate concepts that
could be wearable, like a diabetes pump, Sanchez said.
"We have intermediate designs that connect to the brain, inter-
pret signals and can wirelessly send commands to devices," he said.
"This is another path of technology we're pursuing."

Molecular detectors may refine cancer treatment General's CyberSafety Initiative


GAINESVILLE University of Florida researchers have suc-
cessfully used molecular probes to detect subtle differences in
leukemia cells from patient samples, an achievement that could lead
to more effective ways to diagnose and treat cancer.
The strategy, described in a recent issue of Clinical Chemistry,
involves engineering short, single strands of DNA or RNA called
aptamers to seek out and bind with specific proteins in body fluids.
UF scientists designed the aptamers to bind to cells and mole-
cules associated with leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone mar-
row that annually claims about 21,000 lives in the United States,
according to the National Cancer Institute.
Researchers also found the first evidence that slight molecular
differences can exist even within the same samples from patients
with adult T-cell leukemia, a cancer that strikes the immune system's
own protective cells.
"Our selective aptamers clearly confirm there are several sub-
categories of adult T-cell leukemia," said Weihong Tan, a UF
Research Foundation professor of chemistry at the College of Liberal
Arts & Sciences and a member of the UF Shands Cancer Center. "At
present, doctors have had only their experience to rely upon to deter-
mine the best treatment for these patients. Our findings will give doc-
tors an effective tool to more precisely make a diagnosis and to tai-
lor treatments."
UF researchers built designer probes using cancer cells as a tem-
plate, capitalizing on the ability of aptamers to fold into well-defined,
three-dimensional structures that bind to targets. The process relies
on the fact that different types of cells exhibit unique surface fea-
tures, so aptamers can recognize and bind with these target cells -
and only these cells even in the presence of other, closely related
cells.


The scientists found that three of six aptamers they selected for
study adhered to all types of cancerous cells but ignored normal
blood and bone marrow cells. In combination, the six aptamers pro-
duced distinct patterns that characterize different cancer cells, sug-
gesting that the technique could be useful to detect the molecular fin-
gerprints of cancer in people.
The next step toward developing a clinical diagnostic tool
involves matching patient data with these molecular profiles. The
research team working with Dr. W. Stratford May, director of the
UF Shands Cancer Center, and Dr. Ying Li, a clinical assistant pro-
fessor of pathology, immunology and laboratory medicine in the
College of Medicine has analyzed additional patient samples to
build a database that may one day help doctors select the best treat-
ment strategies.
"We are linking the medical histories of patients to specific
aptamer binding patterns," said Tan, who is also affiliated with the
UF Genetics Institute. "We should soon be able to say patients who
belong to this specific molecular binding pattern should have 'such-
and-such' treatment. Different molecular patterns of cancer patients
will point to different treatments."
Current tests to diagnose leukemia use antibodies, proteins that
have the ability to identify harmful substances. But such methods do
not capture subtle variances in the molecular signature of cancer
cells.
Once an aptamer probe has proved its utility, it can be inexpen-
sively reproduced in a DNA synthesizer.
"Physical scientists mostly use cultured cellular models to
demonstrate a principal, and then we leave the findings behind for
the biological scientists to use if they want," Tan said. "But
through collaboration we have pushed the demonstration through to
an almost clinical application.


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum today
announced the official endorse-
ment of the Florida Association
of School Resource Officers in
support of his cybersafety initia-
tive. The next phase of the edu-
cational campaign will take the
Attorney General's cybersafety
program into schools statewide.
"Our goal is to empower stu-
dents to recognize, avoid and
report instances of predators
attempting to exploit them
through the Internet. The support
of Florida's School Resource
Officers will be instrumental in
this endeavor," said Attorney
General Bill McCollum. "As
technology continues to evolve
and has a more significant role in
our children's lives, we must
take every precaution to keep
them safe. That process begins
with education and outreach."
The School Resource Officer
Program is a collaborative effort
by certified law enforcement
officers, educators, students, par-
ents, and the community to offer
law related educational programs
in the schools. The purpose of


the program is to reduce crime,
drug abuse, violence and provide
a safe school environment. The
Florida Association of School
Resource Officers has commit-
ted its support to the Attorney
General's Office which will
begin presenting a 50-minute
cybersafety program in Florida
middle and high schools this fall.
"I commend Attorney General
McCollum for placing such a
high priority on our children's
safety," said Robert Tricquet,
President, Florida School
Resource Officers Association.
"The Association is committed
to supporting the Office of the
Attorney General to ensure
Florida students are provided
with the information needed to
keep them safe while online."
The Association held its annual
conference this week in St. Pete
Beach where the Office of the
Attorney General recognized
Deputy Michael Cohen of the
Hamilton County Sheriff's
Office as the 2007 School
Resource Officer (SRO) of the
Year.

Crist Signs Carbon SPCA to



Monoxide Detector Host


Legislation

HIALEAH Governor Charlie Crist today ceremonially signed
Senate Bill 1822, requiring carbon monoxide detectors in newly con-
structed homes and buildings and in hotel rooms located near boiler
rooms. Bill sponsors Senator Rudy Garcia (R-Hialeah) and
Representative Eddy Gonzalez (R-Hialeah Gardens) joined Governor
Crist for the bill signing ceremony at Hialeah's Fire Station #7.
"This legislation goes an extra step in protecting Floridians and
the millions of people who visit the state each year," Governor Crist
said. "By requiring carbon monoxide detectors, we ensure that fewer
people will be victims of this silent killer."
The bill requires that all hotel rooms located near boiler rooms
be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors. The detectors will be
integrated with the hotel's existing fire alarm system. In addition, all
new homes and buildings constructed in Florida will be required to
have carbon monoxide detectors located within 10 feet of rooms used
for sleeping. The bill applies to building permits issued on or after
July 1, 2008, for buildings that have a fossil-fuel burning heater or
appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage.
Kidde, the world's largest fire safety manufacturer, also attended
the bill signing ceremony. Kidde is donating 1000 carbon monoxide
alarms to the Hialeah Fire Department and the Hialeah Housing
Authority.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas that can
cause sudden illness or death. It is found in combustion fumes, such
as those produced by cars and trucks, small gasoline engines, stoves,
lanterns, burning charcoal and wood, gas ranges and heating systems.
CO from these sources can build up in enclosed or semi-enclosed
spaces and people and animals in these spaces can be poisoned by
breathing it. CO poisoning is especially dangerous in the aftermath of
hurricanes and other natural disasters when people use generators to
power their homes.
"I encourage all. Floridians to have carbon monoxide detectors in
their homes," says Governor Crist. "Even homes that don't have gas
lines could be at risk from an attached garage, gas grills or from gen-
erators used improperly inside a home.'

To create these technologies, Sanchez is in the
process of developing a center for brain-machine
interfaces at UF with faculty from the College of
Engineering, including Jose C. Principe; John G.
Harris; Toshikazu Nishida; and Rizwan
Bashirullah.
But several challenges face researchers in
bringing these technologies to patients, said Dr.
Steven J. Schiff, a professor of engineering and
neuroscience at The Pennsylvania State University
and director of the Penn State Center for Neural
Engineering.

Bird



Adoption



Day

LARGO The Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals (SPCA) Tampa Bay will
host a Bird Adoption Day with
Safe Haven Avian Placement
Services on Sunday, July 29th
from 12 pm-4 pm. Dozens of
exotic birds from perfect para-
keets to caring cockatoo to mar-
velous macaws and everything in
between will be looking for new
loving homes.
Safe Haven provides rescue,
education, and permanent place-
ment services for homeless com-
panion birds. Potential adopters
should be able to commit several
hours a day to interaction with
the birds. Please bring complet-
ed applications to event, along
with proof of appropriate size
travel carrier.

relief from debilitating seizures, a neuroprosthetic
device could be the best form of treatment, Schiff
said, adding that more work needs to be done to
understand the mechanics of what causes diseases
such as epilepsy and Parkinson's.
"The challenge is not so much the technolo-
gy," Schiff said. "The challenge is to use that tech-
nology wisely."
The day may not be too far off when patients
can control a prosthetic hand or leg just by think-
ing about it, Sanchez said.
"It's becoming a reality," Sanchez said. "We're
designing electronics that we can interface with
biological systems and we can use that to help peo-
ple."
