Scientists and educators from NOAA's
National Marine Sanctuary Program will embark
on a nine-day mission to the world's only undersea
scientific facility starting September 17, 2007. The
Aquarius undersea lab is located 63 feet below the
surface in Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary, the lab will serve as the base for a nine-
day mission to study corals and marine life.
While living underwater in the Aquarius ocean
laboratory, scientists will investigate changes to
corals and marine life in Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary and broadcast their activities in
real time to students and general audiences via the
OceansLive.org education Web portal.
During the mission, dubbed "Aquarius 2007:
If Reefs Could Talk," scientists will conduct
research mainly on sponge biology and ecology
and long-term monitoring of coral and fish species.
Mission results will be compared with previously
collected data, going back to 1994, to assess

Story By: Melissa McCartney
Staff Writer
St. Petersburg-Parent-Teacher conferences may be informative
but how much do parents really know about their child's new
teacher? Thanks to the Florida Department of Education parents and
students have one more very important resource. The FL DOE
launched a new Web site that enables the public to check if discipli-
nary action has been taken against a Florida educator's certificate.
Using an online database, visitors to the site are able to obtain infor-
mation on teacher misconduct cases brought to the state level.
Currently, the available information includes action dates, com-
plaint summaries and descriptions of final outcomes, including any
penalties that may have been applied to an educator's certificate.
Similar to other licensed professionals such as physicians, account-
ants and pharmacists, Florida educators are subject to action against
their certificate for substantiated misconduct.
Disciplinary action against an educator's certificate can range
from a letter of reprimand, to a suspension or revocation of the cer-
tificate. The Web site will not display information on current investi-
gations, which is confidential. Additionally, criminal charges listed
on the site do not necessarily indicate the individual has plead guilty
to, or been convicted of, the criminal offense.


Anyone can search the site: www.myfloridateacher.com. Parents
and students can search a particular name of a teacher or search the
entire county.
After a basic search, Pinellas County posted about 10 results
such as driving under the influence, marijuana possession, inappro-
priate conduct with a student, child pornography and petty theft.
Hillsborough County produced about 20 results including simi-
lar charges and also included misappropriation of funds, abandoning
a teaching position and disorderly conduct.
The Pinellas county school board performs a background check
during the application process and requires finger printing for all new
educators.
According to several area high schools, offices are getting mixed
results. Some schools are being bombarded with calls whereas other
schools right up the street have heard nothing.
The web site is current as of January 1, 2007 and does not
include any criminal investigations that are currently underway for
confidentiality reasons.
Parents requesting additional information regarding teacher mis-
conduct can contact the Bureau of Professional Practices Services at
(850) 245-0438. For details regarding the procedures of the
Education Practices Commission please contact (850) 245-0455.

Is Moscow Revisiting

Soviet Era?
Despite consistent Kremlin claims that Moscow isn't trying to
resurrect the Cold War, a landslide of Soviet-style actions over the
last few weeks is doing a pretty dar good job of indicating the exact
opposite.
One of the frostiest events was President Vladimir Putin's
announcement a little over a week ago that Russia's nuclear bombers
were resuming regular long-range patrols on a "permanent basis"
after a 15-year hiatus.
In fact, British Tornado and Norwegian F-16 fighters had already
escorted the newly-started Russian flights off their coasts going back
to mid-July -- and the Americans launched to meet the Russians en
route to U.S. bases on Guam earlier this month.
But Putin's announcement made it in-your-face official. And that
same day, Russia launched 14 such bombers on patrols well beyond
Russian borders -- with the defense ministry claiming the missions
were over the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic oceans.
SAgain, this was regular Soviet behavior right up to the fall of
Communism. Tu-95 "Bear" bomber/reconnaissance aircraft flew reg-
ular missions along the U.S. East Coast, as well as Pacific missions
against U.S. forces in Alaska and Asia.
Putin insisted that suspension of such bomber flights in 1992 had
undermined Russia's. security. Other nations, he noted, had continued
such missions despite the Cold War's end -- a plain reference to the
United States' global reconnaissance program.
More pointedly, he made those comments on the closing day of
joint war games of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in
Russia's Ural Mountains involving 6,000 soldiers -- ending a week of
seemingly successful counterterrorism exercises in a mock village.
(The SCO consists of Russia, China and four Central Asian states.
Some consider it, perhaps prematurely, to be a Eurasian counter-
weight to NATO and the United States -- "NATO with oil.")
Moscow's military buildup also continues apace. The Russian
armed forces are receiving a major injection of cash -- mostly thanks
to profits from nationalized Russian oil and gas firms to overcome
years of abject neglect.
At the Moscow Air Show last week, Russia strutted its stuff by
unveiling a full-sized mock-up of a pilot-less, stealth bomber, known
as the "Skat" (no giggling -- it means Stingray), which designers
claim will out-stealth the current U.S. B-2 bomber.
In addition, senior Russian aides said that Moscow would re-start
regular production of Tu-95 and Tu-160 nuclear-capable bombers -
now that they are flying "combat missions" for the purposes of
"nuclear deterrence."
A week ago, a senior Russian general warned Prague about host-
ing a U.S. missile-defense system on its territory, encouraging the
Czechs to hold off on any decisions about stationing the missile
shield until after the '08 U.S. presidential elections.
And, on top of Russia's recent controversial submarine forays to
the seabed under the North Pole, the Russian Navy chief recently
called for the re-establishment of a permanent Mediterranean naval
base. (Some think the Syrian port of Tartus is under consideration).
The Kremlin also pulled the plug on local broadcasts of the
BBC. Authorities claim there were licensing problems, but insiders
see the souring of relations between London and Moscow as a result
of the Litvinenko poisoning case as the probable cause. Either way,
the Kremlin's decision is rather reminiscent of the Iron Curtain era,
when the likes of the Voice of America and the BBC were jammed in
the Soviet Union.
Putin has also reportedly ordered a new series of "patriotic" text-
books, seemingly intended to whitewash the dirty deeds of the Soviet
past for a new generation of already nationalistic Russian youth --
just in time for the new school year.
Does all this add up to a new Cold War? Not necessarily, at least
for the moment. But as Putin's recidivism gathers momentum, the gap
dividing Russia and the West continues to widen.
It all sends a very strong message: Putin's Russia is determined
to restore its standing on the world stage, through whatever domestic
or international means are necessary, even if that means fostering a
deep freeze -- if not a new Cold War -- with the West.

Daily dove hunt permits go on sale at 10 a.m. EDT Sept. 17 for
special-opportunity dove fields throughout the state, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

Worksheets are available from FWC regional offices and at
MyFWC.com/hunting under "Special-Opportunity." Sportsmen may
apply for these permits at www.wildlifelicense.com, by calling 1-
888-HUNT-FLORIDA (486-8356), at county tax collectors' offices
or licensed agents.
The cost for the permit is $35, which entitles one adult and one

limit of birds to be harvested between them.
Permits are available for the following special-opportunity pub-
lic dove fields:

Sportsmen also have the option of buying a $10 Youth Permit at

youth (under age 16), while hunting under the supervision of the
adult permit holder, to harvest his or her own daily bag limit of birds.
"These special-opportunity dove fields are planted and managed
by the FWC and offer great hunting opportunities in a friendly, social
atmosphere that provides the perfect setting for friends and family,
including youngsters, to hunt together," said Kurt Hodges, FWC's
small-game biologist.
Beginning Oct. 5, up-to-date information on field conditions and
bird numbers will be available by visiting the Dove Hunter's Hotline
at MyFWC.com/special/dove or by calling (850) 875-BIRD (2473).


Pinellas County Water

System Maintenance

Chlorination

Clearwater, Fla.- The method of water treatment utilized by
Pinellas County Utilities and its wholesale customers will be tem-
porarily modified from September 10, 2007 through October 12,
2007, resulting in a switch from chloramine to chlorine disinfection.
This short-term change is a routine maintenance measure designed to
optimize water quality in the water delivery system. Those impacted
by this maintenance program include Pinellas County Utilities cus-
tomers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park,
Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs and Oldsmar.
Many communities using chloramine annually utilize chlorine
'for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County
Utilities switched to chloramine in 2002 when Tampa Bay Water
changed the disinfectant from chlorine to chloramine in the water-
supplied to Pinellas County.
Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should con-
tact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine
treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a
system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet
suppliers with any questions. Customers will not experience low
pressure or disruption of service. The water will continue to meet
Federal and State standards for safe drinking water. Customers may
notice a slight difference in taste and/or smell in the water during this
temporary change in treatment. Conditions experienced by Utilities
customers will be identical to the more than 50 years prior to 2002
when free chlorine was used as the disinfectant in the water.

For more information, please visit www.pinellascounty.org/utili-
ties or contact Pinellas County Utilities Customer Service at (727)
464-4000.




$10.00 Microchip Clinic

Offered at Humane

Society of Pinellas
MICROCHIP ID FOR PETS HELPS INSURE THEIR SAFE RETURN

CLEARWATER- On Saturday, September 15, 2007, the Humane
Society of Pinellas will offer their microchip clinic for the low cost
of $10.00. The microchip clinic will be held from 1:00 3:30 pm at
the Humane Society of Pinellas (HSP) located at 3040 State Road
590, Clearwater. Microchips will be administered on a first come,
first serve basis. The Humane Society does require proof of your pets'
Rabies vaccine, so don't forget to bring it with you!
Each year more than 10 million pets are lost. 50% of dogs and
75% of cats are without collars by the time their reach a shelter.
Microchip IDs help insure your pets are safe by making sure they
have permanent identification. Pets with a microchip ID have the best
chance of being reunited with their owners. All animals from HSP are
implanted with a microchip ID for the safety of the animal in case it
is lost.
The Pinellas County Humane Society is also kicking off their
offsite adoptions this weekend. In conjunction with National
Adoption Weekend, they will be joining Pet Smart in these efforts. A
variety of adoptable pets will be at Pet Smart located at 2625 Gulf To
Bay Blvd. in Clearwater from 11llam-2pm on Saturday 9/15 and
Sunday 9/16. Future and current pet owners will have the opportuni-


ty to pick from the pets that make the trip to Pet Smart, or view an
array of other animals at the shelter. A voucher system will be used
to choose the new- addition to your family, fill out the appropriate
paperwork and once the application is approved, the new pet can be
picked up at the shelter.


Day September 17

Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark urges all
county residents not registered to vote to commemorate Constitution
Day, September 17, by becoming voters.
Constitution Day is a federal holiday that recognizes the ratifi-
cation of the U.S. Constitution. This year's celebration marks the
220th anniversary of the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention
signed the Constitution in 1787.
"Voting is a privilege won for us by many brave men and
women," said Supervisor of Elections Clark. "I urge all residents who
are not registered voters to have a say in their government by becom-
ing voters now."
The law establishing the holiday was created in 2004. Before this
law was enacted, the holiday was known as "Citizenship Day" and
had been first proclaimed by President Harry Truman in 1952 as a
day to celebrate newly sworn-in U.S. citizens.
Voter registration is always available during regular business
hours at any public library, driver license office or any government
office handling social services or disabilities. For a list of registration
sites, go to www.votepinellas.com. Registration is required for new
voters and anyone who has moved from another state.
Citizens who are already registered to vote are encouraged to
update any name, address, party or signature changes.
For more information on how to register or to update your voter
information, call the Supervisor of Elections office at (727) 464-6108
or go to www.votepinellas.com.

Projects Will Treat

Stormwater and Improve

Lake Tarpon Water Quality
The Southwest Florida Water Management District is working
with Pinellas County on two projects that will treat stormwater with-
in the Lake Tarpon watershed, which will improve water quality dis-
charging to the lake.
The Lake Tarpon watershed consists of 52.4 square miles,
extending from northern Pinellas County into northwest
Hillsborough County. The watershed consists of three major drainage
basins, including the Brooker Creek, South Creek and Lake Tarpon
basins.
Both projects consist of the design, permitting and construction
of an enhanced stormwater treatment pond using aluminum sulfate, a
chemical agent known as alum. It promotes the formation of large
solid particles, or floc. Nutrients and pollutants in the stormwater
runoff attach to the floc and settle in the pond. The county will be
responsible for long-term operation and maintenance of the treatment
ponds and alum systems, which involves removing the alum floc.
Both stormwater ponds will be constructed on land owned by the
county.
The project on the northeastern side of Lake Tarpon will treat
stormwater runoff from a 570-acre basin consisting mainly of single-
family homes and agricultural land. This project has the potential to
remove 112 pounds of total &phorus and 336 pounds of total nitro-
gen'i nnuall. :
The project on the weern side of Lake Tarpon will treat
stormwater runoff from a 212-acre basin consisting mainly of single-
family homes. This project is estimated to remove 267 pounds of total
phosphorus and 579 pound of total nitrogen annually.
The estimated budget for both projects is $1.07 million. The
District's share of $400,000 will be divided between the District's
Pinellas-Anclote River Basin Board and Surface Water Improvement
and Management (SWIM) Program. Pinellas County has budgeted
$237,500 for the project and has secured an additional $375,000 in
Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Water Quality Restoration
grants.
The Florida Legislature established the SWIM Act in 1987,
requiring the five water management districts to maintain a priority
list of water bodies of regional or statewide significance. The districts
develop plans and programs for the improvement of these water bod-
ies. Lake Tarpon is one of the District's top SWIM priorities.

NOAA The June-August 2007 summer season ended with a
long-lasting heatwave that set more than 2,000 new daily high tem-
perature records across the southern and central U.S., according to
scientists at NOAA's National Climatic Data Center in Asheville,
N.C.
The record heat helped make this the second warmest August
and the sixth warmest summer on record for the contiguous U.S.,
based on preliminary data. At the end of August, drought affected
almost half of the continental U.S. The global surface temperature
was seventh warmest on record for the June-August period. (Click
NOAA image for larger view of the August 2007 statewide tempera-
ture rankings. Please credit "NOAA.")
U.S. Temperature Highlights for Summer
For summer 2007 (June-August), the average temperature for the
continental U.S., based on preliminary data, was 73.8 degrees F (23.2
degrees C), which was 1.7 degrees F (1.0 degrees C) above the 20th
century mean and the sixth warmest summer since national records
began in 1895.
This was the warmest summer for Utah and Nevada and it ranked
in the top 10 warmest summers on record for 11 other states. Alaska
had its fourth warmest summer on record. Only Texas and Oklahoma
were cooler than average.
The much warmer-than-average conditions in the Southeast and
throughout the West contributed to above average residential energy
demand for the nation. Using the Residential Energy Demand
Temperature Index (REDTI an index developed at NOAA to relate
energy usage to climate), the nation's residential energy demand was
approximately 8 percent higher than what would have occurred under
average climate conditions for the season.
U.S. Temperature Highlights for August
For the contiguous U.S., the average temperature for August was
75.4 degrees F (24.1 degrees C), which was 2.7 degrees F (1.5
degrees C) above the 20th century mean and the second warmest
August on record, based on preliminary data.
A severe heatwave persisted throughout much of the month
across southern and central parts of the nation. More than 30 all-time
high temperature records were tied or broken and more than 2,000
new daily high temperature records were established.
Raleigh-Durham, N.C., equaled its all-time high of 105 degrees
F Aug. 21. Columbia, S.C., had 14 days in August with temperatures
over 100 degrees F, which broke the record of 12 set in 1900.
Cincinnati, Ohio, reached 100 degrees F five days during August, a
new record for the city.
This was the warmest August in the 113-year record for West
Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama,
Florida and Utah. For the Southeast, the length, severity and area of
the heat wave led to comparisons with events in 1983 and 1954.
The combined global land and ocean surface temperature for
August was the eighth warmest on record, 0.85 degrees F/0.47
degrees C above the 20th century mean. The global surface tempera-
ture for June-August (Northern Hemisphere summer) was the seventh
warmest since records began in 1880.

Florida Public Service

Commission Commits to

Keeping Relay Service

Affordable

Tallahassee The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC)
approved a one-year extension of the state's relay service contract
which provides vital communication services to the state's hearing
and speech impaired citizens. The decision keeps traditional relay
service and captioned telephone service available and affordable for
Floridians.
The approval extends the contract with Sprint through May 31,
2009. Traditional relay services provide an individual with a hearing
or speech impairment the ability to engage in communication with a
hearing individual using special telephones and operators. Captioned
telephone service, referred to as CapTel, uses a special telephone that
shows the hearing-impaired person a written version of a conversa-
tion as the call is taking place.
"We feel it is important to keep this service available and afford-
able for the Floridians who use it," said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "The ability to communicate with others over the telephone is
a safety issue and quality of life issue."
The PSC's action maintains the 75-cent per minute charge for
traditional relay service and the $1.37 per minute charge for cap-
tioned telephone service. The Commission also approved two new
members for the Advisory Committee who will work with the
Commission on oversight of the relay system.
The PSC is committed to making sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas, telephone, water, and wastewater
services in a safe, affordable, and reliable manner. The PSC exercis-
es regulatory authority over utilities in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive market oversight; and monitoring of
safety, reliability, and service.

More Florida Students Take

SAT and AP Exams than

Ever Before

TALLAHASSEE According to a national release of SAT
results, 97,366 of Florida's 2007 high school graduates took the SAT
- the largest number of Florida students to ever take the test. This
number equates to an increase of 3 percent (2,765 graduates) over the
previous year, which surpasses the national increase of 2 percent. In
addition, the number of Florida test takers as a percentage of high.
school graduates was up slightly from 63 percent to 63.6 percent -
whereas the national percentage dipped slightly (down to 48.1 per-
cent from 48.2 percent in 2006). The College Board also released
Advanced Placement (AP) results, and for the second year in a row,
Florida had the greatest one-year increase in the number of public
school AP exam-takers when compared to all other states from 2006
to 2007.
"Florida's SAT and AP results send a clear message that more
and more students are recognizing the value of higher education and
the role it can play in creating a lifetime of success," said Education
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg. "I am proud of the level of interest
our students have shown in taking college entrance exams and high-
er level coursework. Only through a more educated and prepared
workforce will Florida be equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st
century." -
Florida continues to see steady increases in the percentage of
minority students taking the SAT. Overall, minority student partici-
pation has increased to 46 percent, up from 44 percent in 2006.
Nationwide, minority students represented 39 percent of the test tak-
ing population. In Florida, African-American students comprise 14
percent of the test takers, compared to 12 percent nationwide.
Hispanic students in Florida comprise 23 percent of the test-takers,
compared to 12 percent nationwide.
Even with increased student participation, Florida's average
combined reading and math SAT score remained the same as last year
(993). Scores were up one point on the reading portion and down one
point on the math and writing portions. At the same time, the total
score of the nation went down four points one point on the reading
portion and three points on the math and writing portions. While
Florida's overall score was the same as last year, the scores of minor-
ity students climbed. In comparison to last year, Florida African-
American students increased their scores by six points and Hispanic
students by one point. Nationally, the scores for African-American
and Hispanic students dropped one and two points respectively.
Students in the Sunshine State continue to excel in AP participa-
tion and performance. From 2006 to 2007, the number of Florida AP
exam takers increased by 14 percent (from 90,677 to 103,547 exam
takers) compared to approximately 10 percent for the nation.
Increases in Florida AP exam takers were highest among minority
students. Overall, the number of minority students taking AP exams
in Florida increased by 18 percent. According to the College Board,
Florida had the greatest one-year increase in the number of African-
American public school AP exam takers when compared to all other
states and the second greatest increase in the number of Hispanic
exam takers. The number of Florida African-American AP exam tak-
ers increased 29 percent and the number of Hispanic exam takers by
12 percent.
Florida also had the second greatest increase in the number of
students passing (receiving grades of 3-5) AP exams when compared
to all other states from 2006 to 2007. The number of exams awarded
a passing score (3-5) increased by 13 percent in Florida compared to
9 percent for the nation.
Additionally, the number of Florida public school tenth graders
taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying
Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which is offered free-of-charge to all Florida
tenth graders, increased slightly from 2005 to 2006 up from 67 per-
cent to 67.6 percent. Again, Florida saw increases in the percentage


of African-American and Hispanic tenth-grade students taking the
PSAT/NMSQT.
The SAT is a voluntary college entrance exam. SAT scores can
be used for admission to a state university, Talented 20 program,
meeting qualifications for the Bright Futures Scholarship Program or
placement into regular college courses. Students may access infor-
mation about the SAT and other college entrance exams through
Florida's online student advising system, the Florida Academic
Counseling and Tracking for Students at www.FACTS.org.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH CONFIRMS

PROBABLE AMOEBIC ENCEPHALITIS CASE


TALLAHASSEE- The Florida Department of Health (DOH)
along with the Osceola and Orange County Health Departments are
investigating a probable amoebic encephalitis case that resulted in
the death of a Florida child. It is believed to be the second case in
Central Florida this summer and the public is urged take proper pre-
cautions.
There is an increased risk of infection by this organism in all
freshwater areas throughout Florida, especially during hot summer
months when the water temperature exceeds 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Any kind of water sports or activity such as wakeboarding, water ski-
ing, swimming or diving puts the public at a greater risk.
Wear nose clips or hold your nose when swimming, jumping or
diving in any fresh water Closed nostrils reduce your risk of infec-
tion by amoeba, a rare but life threatening condition.
Do not swim in warm standing water, such as ponds, lakes,
storm water retention areas or in areas posted "No Swimming" -
Bacteria and other harmful organisms thrive in warm, standing water.
Seek prompt medical attention if you become ill after swimming in
freshwater.

Five Year Plan Presents

Vision of Excellence at USF
TAMPA-The University of South Florida's vision for the next
five years is to evolve into a premier research university with state,
national, and global impact, boost the quality of the undergraduate,
graduate and research programs, and position USF for membership in
the elite Association of American Universities (AAU). This vision is
outlined in a new strategic plan unveiled today and titled Shaping Our
Future, 2007-12 Transforming Higher Education for Global
Innovation.
SThe strategic plan outlines the vision, values, priorities, and
future performance expectations that will measure progress toward
.the goal. It was developed in a collaborative effort that engaged stu-
dents, faculty, staff, university leaders and the Board of Trustees.
"It's a bold plan," said President Judy Genshaft. "Some have
even called it audacious, particularly in light of the difficult budget-
ary situation Florida universities are facing this year. But at the same
time, few would have expected USF to achieve the excellence it has
in just 51 years. This plan will help us remain laper-focused, strategic
and disciplined in our priorities, policies, and practices so we can
reach an even higher level."
Established in 1956, the University of South Florida has rapidly
ascended into the ranks of America's research universities. Among
USF's achievements is a classification by the Carnegie Foundation
for the Advancement of Teaching in its highest tier-a Research
University with Very High Research Activity. USF is one of three
public Florida universities with that designation. USF is the only uni-
versity in Florida designated by the Carnegie Foundation as
Community Engaged (and one of only ten public research universi-
ties in the nation that hold both designations).
The strategic plan outlines USF's five priorities:
-Student Success
-Integrated,.Interdisciplinary Inquiry
Research and Innovation
Community Engagement
-Global Literacy and Impact
Future performance expectations will be measured alongside
four major goals, which include:
Goal 1 Expanding world-class interdisciplinary research, cre-
ative, and scholarly endeavors.
Goal 2 Promoting globally competitive undergraduate, gradu-
ate and professional programs that support interdisciplinary inquiry
and intellectual development.
Goal 3 Expanding local and global engagement initiatives to
strengthen and sustain healthy communities and to improve the qual-
ity of life.
Goal 4 Enhancing all sources of revenue, and maximizing
effectiveness in business practices and financial management to
establish a strong and sustainable economic base in support of USF's
growth.
To assist in formulating an action agenda for the strategic plan,
President Genshaft has retained Dr. Stephen R. Portch as a consult-
ant. He is the co-author of a report titled Proposing a Blueprint for
Higher Education in Florida: Outlining the Way to a Long-term
Master Plan for Higher Education in Florida, otherwise referred to as
The Pappas Report. Dr. Portch was named one of the "21 Most
Influential Voices of the Academy in the Nation." He is Chancellor
Emeritus of the University System of Georgia and a former
Distinguished Senior Fellow for the Education Commission of the
States (ECS).
"USF has charted an ambitious course," said Dr. Portch. "To
achieve its goals, USF will need to be highly disciplined in its
approach; will need inspired leadership from key positions; will need
to make virtually all its decisions, especially resource allocation deci-
sions, based on the strategic plan; and will need to generate momen-
tum through early wins."
Dr. Portch admitted that when he was first approached by
President Genshaft for this project, he was skeptical about USF's
chances of achieving its goal. After working with University leaders
he said, "The overall quality of USF's strategic planning is extreme-
ly high and is superior to the planning of a number of prestigious uni-
versities that I'm familiar with."
AAU institutions were studied during the development of USF's
strategic plan. AAU institutions have several things in common,
including some of the best undergraduate and graduate learning expe-
riences and a conducive environment for creativity and research.
They're engines of economic growth and innovation, contributing to
the continuous growth and prosperity for their regions. They offer
some of the best alumni professional and social networks.
There is only one AAU member in Florida (the University of
Florida) compared with nine in California, seven in New York, four
in Pennsylvania, and three each in Illinois, Texas and Massachusetts..
There are 60 nationally, and two in Canada.
"There are no great cities in this country that do not have an AAU
institution in their community," said President Genshaft. "We believe
this is an important goal not just for USF but for the Tampa Bay
region as well."
At the same time, Genshaft says it's important to focus on the
journey rather than the destination.


"As we make progress toward our goal," she said, "the bottom
line is a higher level of excellence throughout the University. That
means a better undergraduate experience, the recruitment and reten-
tion of world class faculty and students, more research dollars and
more breakthrough research that benefits the world."


Avoiding areas with obvious algal blooms Contact with algal
blooms may-cause skin rash, runny nose and burning eyes.
Every year health experts issue warnings to educate the public
about the amoeba that thrives in all fresh water bodies when the
water temperature rises. Naegleria is a microscopic amoeba most
commonly found in the upper layer of sediment in the bottom of
lakes and ponds with mud floors. The threat of infection, although
rare, increases during the summer months when the water tempera-
ture exceeds 80 degrees F.
Symptoms include headache, fever, nausea and vomiting, stiff
neck, confusion, lack of attention to people and surroundings, loss of
balance and bodily control, seizures and hallucinations. The public is
urged to contact a medical professional immediately if experiencing
any of these symptoms.
Infection with Naegleria fowleri causes the disease primary
amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). The amoeba invades the brain
and the disease progresses rapidly usually resulting in death within 3
to 7 days. This infection cannot be spread from person to person or
contracted from a properly maintained swimming pool.

Sushi as leftovers out of

the Frig Not a Good Idea


S phr.,.:. by t ..I,:.h t ,Ckhar L I
Food safety expert Keith Schneider scrutinizes day-old sushi rolls in


his office
By: Tom Nordlie
UF


GAINESVILLE- Grabbing
a box of ready-to-eat sushi from
the grocery store? Say sayonara
to any leftovers still in the fridge
after 24 hours, a University of
Florida food safety expert says.
"Any signs 6f spoilage are
bad, but just because it looks
good doesn't mean it's safe,"
said Keith Schneider, an associ-
ate professor of food science;
with UF's Institute of Food- and
Agricultural Sciences.
Take-out and doggie bags
from sushi restaurants should be
eaten when you get home or
thrown away, he said.
That's because foods can
interact when they're placed
together. Inside a sushi roll, bac-
teria sometimes find ideal condi-
tions in the spaces where moist
ingredients come in contact with
dry ones, or where foods with
different pH meet. The result:
faster spoilage.
"Sushi is meant to be con-
sumed the day you buy it," said
Schneider, who co-authored a
document on safe sushi prepara-
tion in retail operations with UF
seafood expert Steve Otwell.
"Each food item has a different
spoilage rate so it's difficult to
put a shelf life on (sushi)."
Schneider says sushi hasn't
been associated with many
reports of foodborne illness, but
he nonetheless advocates a bet-
ter-safe-than-sorry approach.
The term "sushi" covers
many foods made with vinegar-
treated rice and raw or cooked
items such as meat, seafood and
vegetables. Probably the best-
known sushi varieties are mak-
izushi, rolls wrapped in seaweed
and sometimes coated with rice;
and nigirizushi, rice mounds
topped with a slice of fish or
other seafood.
Raw fish might seem the
biggest food-safety hazard in
sushi, but Schneider says that's
not the case-it's often frozen
and thawed before use, to kill
parasites.
Actually, rice is more likely
to cause problems, he said. A
bacterium called Bacillus cereus
can grow in cooked rice if it's not
prepared and handled properly.
That's one reason vinegar is
essential to good sushi rice-it
provides acidity that discourages
the bacterium.
Schneider cautions con-
sumers who buy ready-to-eat
sushi to minimize the chance it
will warm up. Take it from the
cooler just before purchase,
bring it home quickly and refrig-


rate it immediately unless you
plan to eat it right away.
"It's not one of those things
you want to leave on the count-
er," he said.
Packaged sushi sold in
supermarkets is often made by
specialty companies via fran-
chises within the stores. The
biggest such company in North
America is Advanced Fresh
Concepts, or ;AFC, based -'in
Rancho Dominguez, Calif.,
which sells Southern Tsunami
brand sushi in 130 supermarket
chains, according to the compa-
ny's Web site.
Jeff Seller, AFC's compli-
ance director, agrees with
Schneider's 24-hour recommen-
dation and suggests consumers
eat ready-to-eat sushi as soon as
they get home to ensure the best
flavor.
Though sushi is often asso-
ciated with pricey restaurants, in
the past decade inexpensive
sushi has become more available
and popular in the United States,
said Sasha Issenberg, a
SPhiladelphia-based journalist
who authored "The Sushi
Economy: Globalization and the
Making of a Modern Delicacy,"
published in May.
"Wal-Mart opened in Plano,
Texas, with a sushi bar in it," he
said. "I think people see it as sort
of a clean, healthy alternative to
other fast foods at the same level
of convenience."
Statistics on ready-to-eat
sushi sales are sparse, but
Issenberg reported in his book
that one survey indicated 30 mil-
lion U.S. adults eat sushi regular-
ly.
And though the idea of gro-
cery shoppers picking up pack-
aged sushi along with dog food
and dish soap may rankle some
aficionados, Issenberg says from
a historical perspective, this
trend is simply a return to sushi's
roots.
In the late 19th century,
sushi was a low-cost snack sold
by Tokyo street vendors, he said.
Only later did this proto-fast
food become glamorous and
expensive. The first U.S. sushi
bar opened in Los Angeles' Little
Tokyo in 1964, an upscale estab-
lishment frequented by
Japanese-American business-
men.
"In Japan, (sushi's) origins
are far closer to the experience of
going to a supermarket and get-
ting takeout and bringing it
home, than actually sitting down
in a sushi bar and spending $100
on your dinner and eating it
there," he said.

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its front hazard-identification camera to obtain this image
at the end of a drive on the rover's 1,271st sol, or Martian day (Aug. 21, 2007). Due to sun-obscuring dust
storms limiting the rover's supply of solar energy, Opportunity had not driven since sol 1,232 (July 12, 2007).
On sol 1,271, after the sky above Opportunity had been gradually clearing for more than two weeks, the rover
rolled 13.38 meters (44 feet). Wheel tracks are visible in front of the rover because the drive ended with a
short test of driving backwards. Opportunity's turret of four tools at the end of the robotic arm fills the center
of the image. Victoria Crater, site of the rover's next science targets, lies ahead.

What used to be a solid mass of ice is breaking into smaller and smaller areas research is observing on the
Arctic Ocean.


WASHINGTON A new study by NOAA sci-
entists shows that areal sea-ice coverage of the
Arctic Ocean will decline by more than 40 percent
before the summer of 2050, compared to a 1979-
1999 base period.
The work was done by James Overland, an
oceanographer at NOAA's Pacific Marine
Environmental Laboratory in Seattle, and Muyin
Wang, a meteorologist at NOAA's Joint Institute
for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean at the
University of Washington in Seattle. It will be pub-
lished Sept. 8 in Geophysical Research Letters, a
publication of the American Geophysical Union.
These findings are based upon a study of
national and international computer models that
closely match the observed sea-ice extent over the
20-year baseline period of 1979-1999, and then
project forward in time to determine any changes.
"We wanted to assess how much confidence
we can have in regional projections of sea ice from
.the 20 computer models used in the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
J.PCC) Fourth Assessment Report," said Overland.
"Our purpose was to first ensure that our models
could replicate observations of the baseline condi-
tions during the 1979-1999 period before consider-
ing 21st century projections. Our results present a


consistent picture: there is a substantial loss of sea
ice for most models by 2050.'"
Projections in the IPCC report show summer
sea ice loss throughout the Arctic Ocean north of
Alaska, Canada and Asia. Sea ice loss is also seen
during winter in the seasonal ice zones of the more
southern. Bering and Barent seas, and the Sea of
Okhotsk. The models show no ice loss in the Baffin
Bay region, west of Greenland.
"These seasonal ice zones have large variabil-
ity on annual and decadal time scales," said Wang.
"Projections of sea ice are important as there will
be impacts on humans and other ecosystem com-
ponents."
The authors note that loss of ice has major
impacts on marine ecosystems, transportation, and
feedbacks to the larger climate system. For exam-
ple, the light-colored ice reflects the sun's warming
rays; the dark water absorbs that heat. Less ice to
reflect the heat means more water .to absorb the
warmth.

USGS Future Retreat of Arctic Sea


Ice Will Lower Polar Bear Populations


Future reduction of sea ice in the Arctic could
result in a loss of 2/3 of the world's polar bear pop-
ulation within 50 years according to a series of
studies released this week by the U.S. Geological
Survey.
Last December, Secretary of the Interior Dirk
Kempthome announced that the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (Service) was proposing to list the
polar bear as a threatened species under the
Endangered Species Act. In January 2008, follow-
ing a one-year review period, the Service is expect-
ed to make a recommendation to Secretary
Kempthome on whether or not to list the polar bear
as threatened. To assist the Service in making that
recommendation, Secretary Kempthome requested
USGS leadership in studies to inform the Service's
deliberations on polar bear status. This information
summarizes and integrates the results from a series
of studies on polar bear populations, range-wide
habitats and changing sea ice conditions in the
'Arctic.
In making the announcement last December,
Secretary Kempthome said: "I am directing the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S.
Geological Survey to aggressively work with the
public and the scientific community over the next
year to broaden our understanding of what is hap-
pening with the species. This information will be
vital to the ultimate decision on whether the
species should be listed."
Specifically the USGS has improved knowl-
edge on the status of three polar bear sub-popula-
tions, projected numbers of polar bears into the
future in relation to sea ice and integrated the infor-
mation into a range-wide assessment of polar bear
status under scenarios of future climate change.
The newly-released USGS information, pre-
sented to the Service in the form of nine adminis-
trative reports to be open for public comment, will
now be considered within the context of the Fish
and Wildlife Service's one-year review. The


Service will analyze it and other information pro-
vided by scientists, government agencies and the
public in order to arrive at an informed and scien-
tifically justifiable decision. That decision is due in
January.
The team investigating the future of polar
bears and their habitat included scientists from the
USGS, other American and Canadian government
agencies, academia and the private sector.
"This team has done a tremendous job in fur-
thering polar bear science through the use of long-
term observational measurements on polar bears,
their habitats, and many other factors integrated
into a range of new and traditional models," said
Mark Myers, Director of the U.S. Geological
Survey.
During a six-month period of intensive analy-
sis of both existing and new data, the team docu-
mented the direct relationship between the pres-
ence of Arctic sea ice and the survival and health of
polar bears. Polar bears depend on sea ice as a plat-
form to hunt seals, their primary food. But sea ice
is decreasing throughout their Arctic range due to
climate change. Models used by the USGS team
project a 42 percent loss of optimal polar bear
habitat from the Polar Basin during summer, a vital
hunting and breeding period, by mid-century.
In addition to forecasts, declines in habitat
have been recorded throughout the Polar Basin
over the past 20 years of observations. To project
future sea ice conditions, USGS scientists used 10
general circulation models that best approximated
observed trends in sea-ice loss and could be
expected to do the best job of simulating future
conditions. Scientists characterize their conclu-
sions as conservative because even the best avail-
able models are believed to underestimate the actu-
al decline in Arctic sea ice.

Bear Findings Web page. http://

PASADENA, Calif. -Two
months after sky-darkening dust
from severe storms nearly killed
NASA's Mars exploration
rovers, the solar-powered robots
are awake and ready to continue
their mission. Opportunity's
planned descent into the giant
Victoria Crater was delayed, but
now the rover is preparing to
drive into the half-mile diameter
crater as early as Sept. 11.
Spirit, Opportunity's rover
twin, also survived the global
dust storm. The rovers are 43
months into missions originally
planned to last three months. On
Sept. 5, Spirit climbed onto its
long-term destination 'called
Home Plate, a plateau of layered
bedrock bearing clues to an
explosive mixture of lava and
water.
"These rovers are tough.
They faced dusty winds, power
starvation and other challenges
- and survived. Now they are
back: to doing groundbreaking
field work on Mars. These space-
craft are amazing," said Alan
Stem, associate administrator of
NASA's Science Mission
Directorate, Washington.
Victoria Crater contains an
exposed layer of bright rocks
that may preserve evidence of
interaction between the Martian
atmosphere and surface from
millions of years ago, when the
atmosphere might have been dif-
ferent from today's. Victoria is
the biggest crater Opportunity
has visited.
Martian dust storms in July
blocked so much sunlight that
researchers grew concerned the
rovers' daily energy supplies
could plunge too low for sur-
vival. Engineers at NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory,
Pasadena, Calif., put
Opportunity onto a very low-


energy regimen of no movement,
few observations and reduced
communication with Earth.
Skies above both rovers remain
dusty but have been clearing
gradually since early August.
Dust from the sky has been
falling onto both rovers' solar
panels, impeding their ability to
collect energy from the sun.
However, beneficial wind gusts
removed some of the new
buildup from Opportunity
almost as soon as it accumulated.
Opportunity drove to the lip
of Victoria Crater in late August
and examined possible entry
routes. This week, Opportunity
has been driving about 130 feet
toward its planned entry point.
The -route will provide better
access to a top priority target
inside the crater: a bright band of
rocks about 40 feet from the rim.
"We chose a point that gives us a
straight path down, instead of
driving cross-slope from our cur-
rent location," said, Paolo
Bellutta, a JPL rover driver plot-
ting the route. "The rock surface
on which Opportunity will be
driving will provide good trac-
tion and control of its path into
the crater."
For its first foray into the
crater, Opportunity will drive
just far enough to get all six
wheels in; it will then back out
and assess slippage on the inner
slope. "Opportunity might be
ready for that first 'toe dip' into
the crater as early as next week,"
said JPL's John Callas, rover
project manager. "In addition to
the drives to get to the entry
point, we still need to conduct
checkouts of two of
Opportunity's instruments
before sending the rover into the
crater."
The rover team plans to
assess if dust has impaired use of


the microscopic imager. If that
tool is working, the team will use
it to observe whether a scanning
mirror for the miniature thermal
emission spectrometer (Mini-
TES) can function accurately.
This mirror is high on the rover's
camera mast. It reflects infrared
light from the landscape to the
spectrometer at the base of the
mast, and it also can be posi-
tioned to close .the hole in the
mast as protection from dust.
The last time the spectrometer
was used, some aspects of the
data suggested the instrument
may have been viewing the
inside of the mast instead of the
Martian landscape.
"If the dust cover or mirror
is no longer moving properly, we
may have lost the ability to use
that instrument on Opportunity,"
said Steve Squyres of Comell
University, Ithaca, N.Y., princi-
pal investigator for the rovers'
science instruments. "It would
be ihe first permanent loss of an
instrument on either rover. But
we'll see."
The instrument already has
provided extensive valuable
information about rocks and
soils in the Meridiani region
where Opportunity works.
"Mini-TES has told us a lot
about the rocks and soils at
Meridiani, but we've learned that
the differences among Meridiani
rocks are often too subtle for it to
distinguish," Squyres said.
"The same instrument on
Spirit, at Gusev Crater, has a
much more crucial role for us at
this point in the mission because
there is such diversity at Gusev."
Researchers will rely heavily on
a different type of instrument,
Opportunity's alpha particle X-
ray spectrometer, for analysis of
rocks at the bright-band target
layer in the crater.


Lecture Series at USF on Slavery


and Abolition


TAMPA- The bicentennial of the abolition of the.Atlantic slave trade by Great Britain and the United
States is being commemorated by the University of South Florida's Department of Africana Studies and
the Institute on Black with a lecture series, part of which is free and open to the public.
The series includes guest lectures by both nationally and internationally recognized scholars of
African, Latin Americans, Caribbean, and U.S. history.
The series begins Sept. 10 at 3 p.m. in the Grace Allen Room of the USF Tampa campus Library.
The topic is "The Era of Atlantic Slaving in the Perspective of World History" with historian Joseph
Miller, the T. Cary Johnson, Jr. Professor at the University of Virginia
(http://www.virginia.edu/history/faculty/miller.html), past president of the African Studies Association
(2005-2006) and the American Historical Association (1998), and winner of numerous scholarly awards.
The series' other scholars include: Kwabena Akurang-Parry (Shippensburg University), John
Garrigus (University of Texas-Arlington), Roquinaldo Ferreira (University of Virginia), Jane Landers
(Vanderbilt University), Sherwin Bryant (Northwestern University), Matt Childs (Florida State
University), Jeff Needell (University of Florida), and Stephen Hall (Ohio State University).
"This series will delve into the history and legacy of the Atlantic slave trade and compare practices
throughout the parts of the world it touched from Africa to Latin America, throughout the Caribbean and
the United States and Europe," said Eric D. Duke, professor, USF Africana Studies. "There are academ-
ic conferences and other official gatherings going on across the globe given the enormous impact of slav-
ery upon world history, as well as continuing contemporary discussions of these events."
"Most people know very little about slavery and then only one dimension. But slavery as an institu-
tion made an impact across the globe well beyond U.S. history. In fact, there were more enslaved peo-
ples in Latin America and the Caribbean than North America." said Duke. "This area of study and
research is rich in information that can help us understand the world today."
The lectures will be held on Mondays in the USF Library throughout the fall semester, typically from
3 to 4:30 p.m. Smaller group discussions with a coinciding class will be held from 4:30 to 5:30.
"This arrangement will allow university-wide and community attendance at the lecture, but also pro-
vide a unique opportunity for our students to engage top-notch scholars in a small classroom setting,"
Duke said.

Long-term Artificial Reef


Project May Break Grouper


'bottleneck,' UF

Researcher says
Story by: Mickie Anderson
GAINESVILLE One of the country's biggest and longest-
running artificial reef research projects is about to widen its scope,
and the payoff could be healthier grouper in the Gulf of Mexico, a
University of Florida researcher says.
Over the last 17 years, UF researchers have built and placed a 26-
mile line of artificial reefs in the Gulf and studied its impact on gag
grouper, a popular game and food fish.
The reefs give shelter that researchers believe helps young gag
grouper grow to adulthood and replenish heavily harvested popula-
tions.
Bill Lindberg, an associate professor with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences who leads the project, recently learned its
funding has been extended for a second phase that will cost about $1
million over the next four years.
Not all the funding is secure, though the research is expected to
span the next decade.
There are many reasons for such a massive project. Because arti-
ficial reef building is often publicly funded, there is interest in know-
ing how to best use artificial reefs. And knowing how fish use the
reefs is key to helping manage fish populations.
There is public interest in knowing how to best use artificial
reefs. And knowing how fish use them is key to helping them.
Jon Dodrill, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission environmental administrator, calls the project signifil
cant.
"Just in the sheer number of years involved in the planning
process and looking ahead at continued monitoring, continued con-
struction...it's one of the largest artificial reef projects that's been
undertaken," he said.
Gag grouper is a vital Florida fish, popular with recreational and
commercial fishermen and a staple for hungry tourists and natives.
"What restaurant doesn't have a grouper sandwich on its menu?"
Lindberg said.
But scientists who assessed the gag grouper population last year
say the species has been fished too heavily. In 2004, West Florida
fishermen hauled in 7.5 million pounds of gag grouper-up from less
than 2 million in 1987.
And federal rules say steps must be taken to curb overfishing in
the next two years. On the Atlantic coast, that could mean up to a 60
percent reduction in gag grouper landings. Officials will call for Gulf
gag grouper harvest reductions as well, but numbers aren't yet firm.
Overfishing occurs when more fish are taken from a population
than are replaced through reproduction. Growth overfishing happens
when fish are caught before they're adequate size. In general, small-
er fish are less able to reproduce.
Florida's gag grouper suffers from both types, Dodrill said.
Research sponsors include UF/IFAS, the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, the National -Marine Fisheries Service
and Florida Sea Grant. The first phase of the project began in 1990.
In that phase, called the Suwannee Regional Reef System,
Lindberg's team placed 1,350 one-ton concrete cubes,on the ocean
floor, stretched over a 26-mile strip about 20 miles off the Levy and
Dixie county coasts. The cibes contain holes where the fish can hide.
The reefs assembled in four- to 16-cube formations were
then studied, the fish counted, their condition monitored and their
every habit scrutinized.
"The rest of the team has grown gills," Lindberg jokes.
The gag grouper life cycle goes like this: A harem of a few males
and many females spawn 100 miles offshore, the eggs hatch and the
current carries the tiny fish to seagrass beds close to shore, where
they spend their first summer. Over the next few years they leave their
seagrass nursery, swim to deeper water and the cycle starts over-if
they aren't eaten by bigger fish along the way.
Lindberg and his team think they may help the gag grouper pop-
ulation with the new artificial reef system, called the Steinhatchee
Fisheries Management Area. That system will include 1,600 cubes
placed inside a 100-square-mile triangle.
The new reefs -just north of the first system will shelter the
fish from' predators as they make what otherwise would be a precari-
ous journey across the mostly flat ocean floor. Lindberg hypothesizes
the trek causes a "bottleneck" in the gag grouper's ability to repro-
duce.
Despite the reef project's cost and time, Dodrill said his agency
had no qualms.
"This is a pretty carefully thought-out design," Dodrill. said.
"Something like this takes expertise and time and money-three
tough things to bring together in one place."
