Gators vie


for free rings

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

To ring in a new tradition, the UF
Alumni Association is holding a contest to
give two students free class rings.
The association is taking submissions
for the "As Gator as it Gets" contest un-
til 5 p.m. today. Applicants must provide
tangible items such as photos or videos
- to prove their Gators pride.
Katie Seay, director of mem-
Student bership and marketing for the
Lfe association, said 16 students
have entered so far.
"We're looking for passionate, enthusi-
astic, crazy Gators," Seay said.
Seay said the association wanted to at-
tach more meaning to UF's signature class
ring, the "Gator Wrap."
The design is about 70 years old, and
the band is fashioned like two alligators
with their mouths open.
A group of judges will review the en-
tries this week and pick a male and female
winner next week. The winners will re-
ceive their prizes at a ceremony in April.
Former UF President Stephen C.
O'Connell designed the rings when he was
Student Body president in the 1930s.
O'Connell's widow, Cynthia, who is
also a member of UF's Board of Trustees,
will speak at the ceremony, Seay said.

Premed group plays Twister by Reitz

By DANIELLE D'OYLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A jumble of arms and legs wobbled and
toppled as UF students briefly became contor-
tionists in a Twister tournament Wednesday.
The Twister tournament was held on the
Reitz Union Colonnade from noon to 2:30 p.m.
It was hosted to raise funds for UF's Premed
American Medical Student Association.
"We thought it would be a lot more fun to
have something you can get involved in that
people would actually be drawn to," said
Case Newsom, a UF junior and a co-director
of the committee. "Twister is always a good
thing."
"We thought it would be a lot more
fun to have something you can get
involved in that people would actually
be drawn to."
Case Newsom -
Co-director of UF's Premed American Medical .
Student Association AI- i. '


When the event began, it cost $5 to play
unlimited games of Twister.
However, the committee members quickly
began accepting donations instead of turning
people away.
"We just had to adapt to get something for
the cause we're working for," Newsom said.
The $100 raised from the event will contrib-
ute to a Medical Technology Forum that will
be held March 25.
It will also help bring more medical tech-
nology to AMSA's student-run Equal Access
Clinic, Newsom said.
The clinic helps those who cannot afford
regular medical care.
Stuffed animals and candy were given to
winners.

Kissing booth raises
money
Cupid isn't one to kiss and
tell, but on Valentine's Day, he
kissed about 20 UF students.
The Florida Players spon-
sored an event Wednesday on
the Reitz Union Colonnade to
raise money.
Ryan Ruby, a third-year
theater performance student,
played Cupid and kissed stu-
dents in return for donations.
"I must have kissed at least
20 people already, and four or
five for free," Ruby said.
Ruby, who .has been a
member of the Florida Players
since his freshman year, only
intended to sit in a chair and
ask for kisses. Before he knew
it, wings were strapped on,
a hat was donned, and his
Valentine's Day transforma-
tion was complete, Ruby said.
The Florida Players as-
sistant production manager,
Michelle Karst, said the event
was a success. She estimated
that the group raised about
$100.with the booth.
The Florida Players pro-
duction manager, Danny
Sharron, said it felt great to
spread love and happiness on
Valentine's Day.
"It's amazing how some-
thing so little can brighten
someone's life so much,"
Sharron said.

County schools dispense condoms, sex education


* BRAZIL STARTS PROVIDING CON-
TRACEPTIVES TO STUDENTS.

By LAUREN TAPLINGER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Brazil's health ministry vowed Tuesday
to put condom vending machines in schools
as part of an AIDS prevention program, but
health officials in the United States doubt that
furnishing schools with contraception is the
solution to risks associated with irresponsible
sexual activity.
Valerie Prince, a sexual health specialist
and student outreach coordinator for the


Student Health Care Center, said people also
need to be educated.
"A dispenser doesn't teach you how to use
a condom or how to make responsible deci-
sions," she said.
Patricia Hughes, health services supervisor
for Alachua County public schools, said the
school district offers contraception and pro-
vides sexual education to students through
the school health departments.
"We give out condoms and we teach them
how to use it," Hughes said.
Prince said that school administrations and
politics control the kind of sexual education
taught on campus. She added that Brazil's
health minister, Agenor Alvares, didn't have-


"We give out condoms and we
teach them how to use it."
Patricia Hughes
Alachua County health services supervisor

full support when he made his decision to
install condom machines in schools.
A comparable situation occurred recently
with Texas Gov. Rick Perry's executive order
requiring sixth-grade girls to be vaccinated
against human papillomavirus, which also
faced opposition, Prince said.
There are. different types of sexual educa-
tion: Abstinence-only curriculums advocate
sexual abstinence before marriage, while hu-


man growth and development curriculums
promote abstinence and also provide informa-
tion about contraception, safer sex and sexual
orientation.
Hughes said the schools in Alachua
County offer human growth and develop-
ment education.
Prince said that contraceptive education
doesn't encourage sexual activity but rather
helps' teens delay sexual activity, increase their
contraceptive use and decrease their number
of partners.
Hughes said she is satisfied with the sexual
education programs in Alachua County. She
credited the school nurses with the success of
their programs.

PUBLIC HEALTH

Men await approval for their version of HPV vaccine


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

UF's Student Health Care Center will not
vaccinate men against human papillomavi-
rus until the Food and Drug Administration
approves the use of the product for men.
Last summer, Merck & Co. released
Gardasil, a vaccine that reduces the risk of
contracting HPV.
This vaccine has only been approved for
women between 9 and 26 years old.
Others who want protection against HPV
may have to wait until Merck finalizes its
research and the FDA gives it approval to
sell the drug.
"The FDA wants to find out: Does it
work? And is it safe?" said Dr. Phillip
Barkley, director of the health care center.
Merck spokeswoman Jennifer Allen said
the company is currently researching the ef-
fects of Gardasil on men between 9 and 23
years old, and she expects it to have conclu-
sive data before 2008.
Although no men have inquired about


the shot while Barkley has been at the health
care center, he said a few nurses have had
requests from men.
At least 200 women have been vaccinated
at the health care center, Barkley said.
HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that
infects about 50 percent of sexually active
people during their lives,
S according to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention.
If the product is ap-
Sproved for men, Barkley
said he would recom-
Smend men get vaccinated
because HPV can cause
Barkley genital warts. And men
can pass on the strains that cause cervical
cancer to their sexual partners.
There are over 100 strands of HPV, but
many of the subtypes do not cause infection
and they clear up on their own.
Building construction junior Ryan
Tempone said he thinks some men would
get the shot if it were approved.
"I think men would be interested in pro-


testing their partners, and I would spend the
money to get it if it was available to me," he
said.
Vaccination against HPV consists of three
injections at about $150 each.
Dr. Guy Benrubi, the chairman of ob-
stetrics and gynecology at the UF Health
Science Center in Jacksonville, said men
could get the vaccine at many doctor's of-
fices, but the cost would not be covered by
insurance companies.
He suggested to his 22-year-old son that
he get the shots, primarily to protect himself
against genital warts, Benrubi said.
There is also evidence that the vaccine
would help prevent anal and rectal cancer
in men, he said.
"There are a lot of benefits we are going
to see downstream from this vaccine, not
just cervical cancer," he said.
For the vaccine to be substantially effec-
tive in decreasing cervical cancer in women,
he said men must also be vaccinated.
"You can't get rid of the flu by vaccinat-
ing only one-half of the people who could
potentially have it," he said.


To date, Merck has marketed Gardasil
toward girls as young as 9 years old. Alien,
Merck's spokeswoman, suspects the prod-
uct will also be marketed toward 9-year-old
boys when it becomes available.


Some Facts:
Gardasil is highly effective in preventing four
types of HPV in young women who have not
previously been exposed to HPV.
Gardasil targets HPV types that cause up to
70 percent of all cervical cancers a3rd about 90
percent of genital wans.
The American Cancer Societm predicts ina
mere will be about 11,150 new cases of
invasive cervical cancer in the United States
in 2007. About 3.670 women will die from inis
disease in 2007.
Tne length of vaccine protection is usually not
niiown when a vaccine is first inIuoduied. So far,
studies nave found trat vaccinated persons are
protected for five ears

summer through the Science for Life
research program.
The program will give 10 awards
of about $2,500 each to juniors and
seniors to do research around the
country and overseas.
"They can gain experience and
be exposed to another culture," said
Ben Dunn, associate director of the
Science for Life program..
The deadline for students to ap-
ply is March 1.
The money funding the awards


/1


comes from a grant of $6 million,
with $1.5 million coming from
the Howard. Hughes Medical
Institute and the
U F rest from eight
Research colleges and vari-
ous UF institutes.
"The whole, idea
behind Science for Life is to get stu-
dents involved as soon as possible,"
Science for Life Program Director
Randy Duran said.
To promote early involvement,


Florida vs. Texas

a one-credit class was created to
match science majors with research-
ers in their fields of interest.
"We're hoping the experience
gets them personal contact with
professors," Dunn said. "Up until
now, students have had to work to
find professors."
Dunn said many students have
been successful in using the class
to network with professors and
researchers. Science for Life has also
started a science education minor,


which prepares students to teach
science in grades six through 12.
Program directors are also using
the grant to open a new laboratory
in the UF Health Science Center to
help create more undergraduate
research.
"We're trying to equip the lab
with more than $500,000 of life-sci-
ence equipment," Duran said. "We
want to be way far ahead of other
places and give students the time of
their life."

Low-emission rental cars get noticed


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

UF's new pay-per-drive
program, which is intended
to cut down on campus traffic
and pollution, has had more
than 50 people sign up since
its inception in January.
The Flexcar program pro-
vides UF students, faculty
and staff access to eight low-
emission vehicles parked on
campus.
Allan Preston, coordinator
of the Physical Plant Division's
Quality Office, wrote in an e-
mail that there are currently 56


faculty, students or staff and
10 UF departments registered
for the program.
Preston wrote that Flexcar
is one of many initiatives at
UF geared to limit negative
environmental impact on
campus.
To limit emissions, UF
requested as many hybrid
vehicles as possible. Three of
the eight cars are Honda Civic
Hybrids, Preston wrote.
Preston wrote that the
other five vehicles are "high-
mileage and rate average or
better on (the Environmental
Protection Agency)'s air pol-

"We believe that the
Flexcar program will
have a lasting ben-
eficial impact on
campus."
Allan Preston
Physical Plant Division's
Quality Office coordinator

Bob Miller, UF's associate
vice president for finance and
administration, addressed
Flexcar's role in the univer-
sity's push for sustainability,
which is as simple as recycling
or as complex as construct-
ing a building that uses more
natural light and less air con-
ditioning.
"It's really part of a coordi-
nated effort by UF to reduce
single-occupancy vehicle traf-
fic, which cuts down on car-
bon emissions," Miller said.
There are no restrictions
for what Flexcar vehicles can
be used for because members
pay for the vehicles by hourly
or daily rates, he said.
Miller explained that
Flexcar encourages the use of
carpools and public transpor-
tation to campus because it
eliminates the need to own a
vehicle.
"If you caught the bus to
work and got a call 'My son
broke his arm' I can go get
a Flexcar and take care of this
unexpected occurrence instead
of driving a car every day."


Drummers


seek solace

NOISE, from page 1

lice can't issue a citation.
Kameg said in cases like Smith's,
mediation is the best solution.
Smith and Tobin Wagstaff, the di-
rector of the drum school, are trying to
work things out, but an agreement has
been difficult to reach.
The drum line holds rehearsals
from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Smith's of-
fice doesn't close until 6:30 p.m.
Wagstaff said changing the re-
hearsal schedule would affect 50 to
100 people, although
Around he said he has been
-. ;c....:....... playing quieter for
the first half-hour of
rehearsals.
"I'm happy trying to work with
our neighbors, but there's no reason
to be so selfishly desensitized to what
they're doing to us," Wagstaff said.
For other noisemakers in town, like
garage bands, Gainesville's noise ordi-
nances can be restrictive.
City codes hold that a noise -
whether it is a stereo or a lawn mower
- is in violation of ordinances if it dis-
turbs a reasonable person of normal
sensitivities or is plainly audible at a
distance of 200 feet or more.
Will Kenneth, a journalism se-
nior at UF, heard about the Studio
Percussion complaint from a post on
GainesvilleBands.com.
Kenneth is the lead guitarist in a
band called The Factor, and he said it's
difficult to play in a local band because
of Gainesville's ordinances.

Gator

The party formerly

known as Swamp
With the announcement of the Gator Party plat-
form Tuesday night for the Student Government
Spring elections come the questions.
This party's had more name changes than Prince per-
haps you remember the Gator Party from its previous stint
as the Swamp Party or before that ... the Gator Party. But
no matter which way you slice it, it's still the Greek Party
through and through. And it's still more of the same. But
we won't fault the new crew for that. Innocent until proven
guilty, right?
And on to the platform issues we go!
One of the major features of Gator Party's platform is
transferring CD course packs onto WebCT so students can
access them for free. Presidential candidate Ryan Moseley
has been working on this project as the current Student
Body treasurer, and we think it's a pretty good one. Many
CD course packs cost more than $50 some even more
than $100 and most cannot be resold during buyback.
That means every student who takes Age of Dinosaurs
- hundreds each semester is stuck with some software
he or she will never use again. Well, maybe as a coaster. But
if the Gator Party can put course packs online at a reason-
able cost, we'll get behind them.
But one issue we aren't so sure about is the party's pro-
posal for streaming video feeds of the Commuter and Park-
and-Ride lots. We know the Southwest Recreation Center
has Webcams so students can check how busy the place is
before they trek all the way down there, and that's pretty
helpful. But the thing is, people can be pretty flexible about
when they go to the gym.
But if you have class at 9:35 a.m., you don't have much
choice you'll need to get on campus regardless of how
full the parking lots are. And since students have the same
classes week in and week out, there shouldn't be too much
variation in how packed the parking lots are. So why should
SG spend thousands of dollars for a couple of cameras that
really won't affect people's decisions or help them out?
The Gator Party is also jumping on the sustainable ener-
gy bandwagon, and we couldn't be happier. But who could
really oppose such an important issue?
They also say they will provide more recycling bins on
campus during exam week. We're kind of confused. Why
just exam week? Gator Party President Yooni Yi said that
these things can't happen right away, and there will eventu-
ally be have more recycling bins year-round. But how much
more is there to it than buying the containers? And why do
we have to wait until exam week to get them?
We support the concept of reviving Chomp the Vote,
but we have a few concerns. Chomp the Vote has not ex-
actly been active this school year under the Swamp Party's
watch. And many of the candidates in the Gator Party are
the same.
Plus, there isn't much point in spending time and money
on this now the deadlines for Alachua County registra-
tion have passed for the upcoming city elections, and there
won't be any other elections until 2008. To bring up Chomp
the Vote now is just spouting empty rhetoric. That money
- until election season is once again upon us should be
spent on something more pressing.

Modern warfare dangerous to mankind


War has come a long way from the days of
aiming for the-whites of their eyes, muzzle-
loading a musket and snapping on a bayonet
for one final charge. The modern battle cry is no cry at
all it's the distant and anonymous voice of a prere-
corded telephone operator saying, "Aim for the lights
in the sky."
On Jan. 11 China fired a ballistic missile into space,
blowing an old weather satellite of theirs to pieces in
order to test their latest anti-satellite weaponry. It's pre-
paring for a battle for the heavens one with incalcu-
lable costs. Knocking out an enemy's Global Positioning
System satellites and spy satellites would prove devas-
tating in an overseas war. But that's not the worst.
The satellite shattered into hundreds of large frag-
ments, potentially speeding up what scientists believe
to be an inevitable chain reaction of satellite collisions
in the earth's orbit. If a functioning satellite collided
with an orbiting fragment and shattered, this would
add to the amount of junk in orbit. The debris would
eventually reach a point of "critical mass" when no sat-
ellite would be able to..avoid a collision. Earth would be
surrounded by its own junk.
Modem technology comes with more consequences
- especially regarding war.
We've already seen our share of biological warfare. It
dates as far back as the early 18th century, when British
forces distributed blankets carrying smallpox to Native
Americans. We saw Saddam's employment of chemical
warfare in his mass killing of the Kurds. We saw the
anthrax letters of 2001.
Chemical warfare is cold and detached, even by a
murder's heartless standards, and it's becoming in-
creasingly possibly eo use chemical warfare as a tool for


mass execution.
The Cold War saw the advent
of a nuclear arms race, a race
that still runs in dark tunnels
away from the public spotlight.
The strongest deterrent for us-
Todd Portnowitz ing a nuclear weapon now isn't
letters@alligator.org compassion for human life, but
Mutual Assured Destruction, or
MAD a fitting acronym. You blow us up, we'll blow
you up, so we might as well not fight. Modem peace in
a nutshell.
Eight nations are known to currently possess nuclear
weapons, with Israel an unconfirmed ninth. Now an
increasing number of rogue nations, not exactly known
for their friendliness, are gaining nuclear capabilities.
Last Tuesday, North Korea agreed to close a nuclear
reactor in exchange for $400 million in aid. Even the
idea of the bomb can be used as leverage. It seems
strange that the United States expects countries to
drop their nuclear pursuits while we, of course, are the
world's leading producer of nuclear weapons and are
not exactly known for our friendlessness either.
The truth is, we're scared. We're all scared of what
we're capable of ending life on earth for no good
reason. Everyone is picking up their guns, preparing for
the world war in every crystal ball.
It sounds backward, but this global weapon building
and war preparation seems to be increasing the chances
of if not entirely causing a war much larger than
Iraq. Soon we'll be digging graves for soldiers who
haven't died yet.

Pelosi's requested plane costs tax payers too much
In Jennifer Nestler's letter to the editor Tuesday, she
attempted to portray Nancy Pelosi's request for a military
jet as just a routine measure taken with no qualms. This
is fine, but it is the means by which Speaker of the House
Pelosi and her supporters are going about this that is out
of line.
The jet Pelosi requested seats 42, has an open bar and
would cost taxpayers $22,000 an hour to operate. Along
with this, in reference to former Speaker of the House
Dennis Hastert's plane, she has stated that as a female
speaker, she wants the same opportunities as former male
speakers. Since when has this become about her sex?
To add insult, her second-in-command, Rep. John
Murtha, has said that it would be a "mistake" if informa-
tion about her request were leaked by the Pentagon, as
Pelosi controls its allocations. It's not a problem provid-


ing a suitable jet for Speaker Pelosi to provide for her
security, but for the party that ran on cutting down on the
so-called "unnecessary actions" made by President Bush
in the name of national security, isn't this extravagance
in the name of security just a tad much? She should focus
on helping the American people, not on her privileges as
speaker.

Better ways for UF to spend money than on goodies
I am writing in response to the column, "Free annual
apparel, gifts would improve UF school spirit." In the
past five years as a UF student, I have attended countless
university events, free to both students and the public,


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7


where free T-shirts and other Gators gear were distrib-
uted to dedicated fans. Certainly, other institutions may
give away free apparel and gifts to incoming students, but
I would rather this university allocate its funds to main-
taining cheap tuition for students, hiring more faculty
and continuing free student admission to nearly every UF
athletic event. I agree that giving away T-shirts to incom-
ing students is an inexpensive means of generating school
spirit across campus, but I never needed free swag to feel
proud to be a Florida Gator.
Perhaps instead of aiming to attire the remaining 10
percent of Gainesville which, in Mr. Hagan's opinion,
constitutes seemingly alienated Gators fans why not
provide free clothing to the nearly 1,200 homeless in our
community? Aren't they part of the Gator Nation, too?

Speaking Out Gainesville is set up
like a small town, not
a crappy strip littered
with run-down bars. You can't blame OSU for
neighboring with a big city, but for goodness'
sake, clean it up. Yeah, the South Campus
Gateway is nice, but I'll take the secluded
Gainesville scene any day.
Another feature that added to the beauty of
Gainesville was its scenery. I know it sounds
cheesy, but it makes a difference. Palm trees
are nice, and Spanish moss is even better. The
city was ocean, and people were out and about.
There was a buzz, an energy..
But the clincher for me was the atmo-
sphere. UF really felt like a college town in
ways you can't even describe. No matter
where you go, you never feel "off-campus."


Students were everywhere, and there seemed
to be a sense of pride and community that we
lose on our giant campus. OSU, being such a
large place, often feels that way. There isn't re-
ally a college-town feel, but more of an urban
vibe. Florida enrolls more than 50,000 students
as well, but has the comfort of 20,000.
So what does all this have to do with foot-
ball? My point is this: The quality, tradition
and overall support of both teams are about
equal. But what about the other eight months
of the year? Sunny Florida or gray Ohio?
Classy Gainesville or dumpy Columbus?
Palm or deciduous? I'll take the former on all
three.
Reality is harsh. Sorry OSU, Florida wins
again.

Sex can cause stress in and out


Dear Kelly,
I have a problem I am hoping you can help
me with. My girlfriend and I have been dating
for four months and recently decided to lose our
virginities to one another. The problem is that
the first time we had sex, it only lasted about
three minutes and she was not completely sat-
0 isfied. Three weeks later, we have continued to
have sex but it still only lasts three minutes.
She is being very supportive and keeps telling

Dear Anonymously Embarrassed,
There are so many expectations and so
much pressure placed on sex, and it makes
sense that you'd be nervous. You'll perform
better when you're relaxed, so don't over-
analyze every move. Pay attention to what
she likes and try new things. Remember that
your girlfriend cares about you and is sup-
portive.
I've said before that the keys to good sex
are comfort and practice. Because you decid-
ed to l,-se your virginities to each other, you
mo- t [hkil have the comfort part down. You
ILut need practice. Very few people are awe-
some in bed their first time. Sex is like any
other blood-punmping activity: The more you
do it the better \ou get: So get to it!

I was a karaoke virgin before this
week.
I am scared out of my mind
to perform in front of a bunch of
people I've never met before, I
don't know how to sing, and I am
not outgoing. But I was determined
to break out of my shell in what
turned out to be a storm of karaoke
appearances.
My first experience came at
Common Grounds Coffeehouse..
Hoping to make it as awkward
as possible, I chose Will Smith's
"Gettin' Jiggy Wit It." (Keep in
mind that I am a dorky white girl.)
If you think it's hard to follow
words on a prompter to a song
you're familiar with, try following
words to a rap you haven't heard
since 1998. It was impossible. I read
as fast as I could, but alas, I discov-
ered I have no future as a rapper.
Despite my inability to keep up
with the prompter and the strange
bouncing motion I developed on the
part that goes "na na na na na. na
na," I managed to get a few claps.
They may have been pity claps, but
at least they were cheering for me.
My next encounter was at
University Club. The crowd seemed
to like slow ballads, so I performed
a very intense (and dare I say, soul-


ful) rendition of Lionel Richie's
"Hello."
I finished my week of karaoke
at Market Street Pub. I opted to
sing with two friends and a strange
man who joined us halfway through
for a performance of Pat Benatar's
"Love is a Battlefield." The crowd
went wild.
That's something I discovered:
The crowd is gonna go wild no mat-
ter what you do as long as you
have fun with it.
My biggest piece of advice for
first-time karaoke-goers is this:
Don't take yourself too seriously.
People are just there to have a good
time, and they actually expect you
not to be able to -sing. In fact, as
an observer, the people you're sur-
prised by are the ones who actually
do have talent.
Pick a song everyone likes so
that the crowd can sing along with
you. More importantly, pick a song
you know. It's easier to remain ani-
mated when your eyes aren't glued
to the monitor.
It's amazing how therapeutic
getting up on a stage and perform-
ing for a bunch of strangers can be.
Whether you need help coming out
of your shell or you just want a good
laugh, karaoke is the way to go.

Wine trend expands

to younger crowd


KATE KENNEDY AVENUE WRITER


new generation has bro-
ken the cask wide open
in search of a casual yet
sophisticated pastime.
Wine drinking has made its way
into college life at UF, and its
popularity continues to increase.
"We started wine tasting five
years ago, and it's been growing
ever since," said Dani Wiley, a
waitress at Bistro 1245.
The wine of old has typically
been relegated to either yuppie
dinner parties, fancy restaurants
with white linen tablecloths or
Holy Communion. It used to be
almost exclusively associated
with urban areas crawling with
wealthy and worldly profession-
als in their mid-30s who drive
sports cars and schmooze with
executives at fancy restaurants.
The demographic has grown
to include young adults from
22 to 30 years old who not only
enjoy the occasional wine tast-
ing with friends but see it as a
lifetime skill in which they are
investing.


am getting more and more
interested in it," said Sharmini
Pitter, a UF senior.
She is taking a leisure course
in wine tasting this semester and
is contemplating owning her own
vineyard someday.
The demand for the course
was so great this semester that
there was a lengthy waiting list
to get in. The course teaches
students about wine etiquette,
proper glassware, food and wine
pairings, wine labels and differ-
ent wine-producing regions of
the world. Instructor Tom Stone
emphasizes responsible con-
sumption, saying that the goal
with wine tasting is "quality, not
quantity."
SHaving been in the alcohol
and wine industries for 10 years


as a wine broker and salesper-
son, he has seen changes in the
market firsthand. He encourages
his students to go out and use
their new-found skills at wine
tasting and highly recommends
"A Celebration of Wine," which
will be held Sunday in the Reitz
Union. At the annual event,
which benefits two public radio
stations, sommeliers and novices
alike can sample more than 300
wines and complement their
drinks with food, coffee and des-
serts from local vendors.


ith classes and tasting
abounding, wine educa-
tion is becoming easier
for the everyday aficionado. With
the Internet as a resource, wine
lovers can prepare their palates
at home and whip out wine lingo
and trivia in a public setting.
Patricia Borzych hosts weekly
wine tasting in the old wine
shop at Caf6 Gardens. She says
she has noticed that her patrons
are coming in with noticeable
previous knowledge about wine.
"I can tell they are more edu-
cated," she said.
Borzych, a former UF student,
said she has always been a wine
drinker.
"The only difference is that
now I drink better wine," Borzych
said.
Robbie Fipes, co-manager
of Dom's Liquors and Wine
Warehouse, said that in the five
years he has been working at the
25-year-old establishment, he has
witnessed a marked change in the
age of his clientele.
"There has been a distinct trend
towards 20-somethings and 30-
somethings at our wine tastings"
he said. "It really amazes us."
He attributes this to a range of

friendships with regular wine-tasting customers.


different reasons, increased world
travel being one of them.
Especially in wine-producing
countries like France, Spain and
more recently South Africa, the bit-
tersweet nectar is as free-flowing
as the Seine in the summertime.
Many students who study abroad
become accustomed to drinking


wine with meals or in social situ-
ations and continue to do so when
they return home.
UF sophomore Emily Archer
spent last Spring semester in
Paris.
"If your group didn't order
alcohol at a restaurant, it was
considered rude," she said.


Archer periodically reunites
with her fellow Francophiles, and
she says wine is always an essen-
tial part of the gathering.


n the past, the price of quality
wine has been a major deter-
rent for younger people.
"It used to be hard to find a
good wine for $6 or $8," Fipes
said. "Now there is better wine
being made at a cheaper price
point."
The Holy Grail of cheap wines
is called Charles Shaw, affec-
tionately nicknamed "Two Buck
Chuck." Produced in California,
it sells for a thrifty $1.99 at Trader
Joe's Markets.
Despite the increasing appre-
ciation that college students have
for fine wines, cheap wine is no
stranger to college campuses.
An underground movement
called Y'Slapping the Bag" has
surfaced as a slightly disturbing,
yet strangely refreshing alterna-
tive to the usual kegger.
In every box of the universally
disparaged Franzia brand wine,
there is an industrial strength
plastic bag that contains the
sacred sap. Participants remove
the bag from the box and open-
hand smack it as hard as possible
in a vain attempt to break it like
a pifiata. Once the bag deems a
slapper acceptable, he or she is al-
lowed to drink from its spout.
"There's no real reason to
slap it, but if anyone asks, it's to
activate the sugars," said SFCC
junior Christina Lippelman, a
veteran slapper and self-pro-
claimed charter member of the
original UF bag slappers.
"I brought it to my group of
friends at UF," she said, but she's
only heard of isolated groups
around campus and some frater-
nities slapping the bag.
"It's still not very popular
yet," she said.

Local author uses-shrunken heads as subject of novel


CARLY BLUSTEIN


There is something new at the UF
Bookstore. Walk past the brigade of national
championship apparel, and you may find
something a little bit out of the ordinary
- shrunken heads on display.
Jim Castner would tell you not to be
alarmed. The heads are merely promo--
tional items for his new novel, "The Tsantsa
Homicides," a mystery that tells the fic-
tional story of two UF graduate students
who attempt to solve a series of murders
and trail headless corpses from Florida to
Pennsylvania. Their most prominent clue is
a beautiful green beetle wing.
The case becomes dangerous when they
are forced to pursue the killer in Ecuador. In
a final deadly confrontation, they find them-
selves in the Amazon jungle, precisely where
Jivaro warriors conducted massive head-
hunting raids more than 100 years earlier.
Castner's idea for the book originated

Speights shines off bench, sits second half


BASKETBALL, from page 20

Brewer, who finished with 16 points, five re-
bounds, four assists and three steals.
After not playing a minute against
Kentucky, center Marreese Speights was an
integral part in the Gators' victory.
The freshman acted as a defibrillator to
revive the Gators in the first half, scoring 8
points, grabbing one rebound and swatting
one shot in 5 minutes.
"I told Marreese on Monday, don't be dis-
couraged, don't get down because the team
we're getting ready to play is the perfect game
for you to play in," Donovan said. "You've got
to be ready to go."
Speights said he was just happy to aid the
Gators in the victory, but-the smile on his face
during the game said it all.
Speights was a crowd favorite and, at one
point, he turned to the student section to flash


that mega-watt smile.
"I love the Rowdy Reptiles," Speights said.
"They give us so much energy. I just love it, so
I was just showing them some love."
Donovan didn't play Speights in the sec-
ond half, saying UF needed its experienced
players on the floor.
A 17-4 run in the second
half put the Gators up 56-54
at 9:24 to give UF its first lead
of the game.
"The difference was we
shot 63 percent in the second
half and we held them to 37
Speights percent," Donovan said. "It
was really our defense that
got us back in the game."
The Gators showed their resilience and for-
ward Joakim Noah was proud of their effort.
"Right now, we have everything, but we
have to play- like we don't have anything,"
Noah said.


Gators enter polls for first time


SOFT, from page 20

Last season, Nelson de-
feated then-defending champion
Michigan and the Gators defeated
No. 1 Arizona on Saturday.
Senior pitcher Stacey Stevens
(2-1) continued her strong play. She
threw her third complete game of
the season but needed the help of
her defense to get the victory. USF
got six hits off Stevens but was un-
able to drive them in.
"We're a great defensive team,"
Stevens said on Tuesday, "and as a
groundball pitcher I'm dependent
on my defense to get outs for me."


Before the games, Stevens
described the UF-USF matchup >
as a great in-state rivalry, but it
has been one-sided recently. The
Gators have now
defeated the
Bulls in eight of
their past nine
meetings.
Softball
GATORS RANKED:
After starting the season unranked,
UF has gained the attention of the
country and is ranked for the first
time this season. The USA Today/
NFCApoll has the Gators at No. 20
and the ESPN.com/USA Softball
poll has them at No. 19.


GONZO, from page 20

champion Gators last night?
UF looked so bored against.
the opposition that it spotted
Alabama 18 points with its lack-
luster 22-4 performance in the
game's first 7 minutes.
I guess the Gators needed a
challenge. College basketball isn't
providing it for them.
But what will it take for a team


to defeat UF?
"I don't .know," said UF for-
ward Corey Brewer, who paused
for a moment, then scratched his
head, laughed and replied, "Well,
I'm not going to tell you."
I don't think there is an an-
swer.
The only one I can conceive is
mononucleosis, which sidelined
Brewer and led to the Gators' only
two defeats this season Florida
State and Kansas.


The fact is the Gators are 24-2
and 11-0 in conference play.
They are dominating college
basketball and haven't even
played to their potential in a
month.
I was just a child in 1992, but
history tells me UF is looking a
whole lot like that year's Duke.
UF has three players who are
on pace for 1,000 career points.
Wednesday night, Taurean
Green became the second current


player to reach the milestone.
Duke had four 1,500 point scor-
ers on its squad.
Defending its crown in 1992,
the Blue Devils went 34-2. Should
UF win out, it would also have
two blemishes on its record.
And the biggest characteristic
that both teams share can't be
found in any record book.
They both play with an unself-
ishness that no team can match.
It's only mid-February, but


when filling out the San Antonio
region on your bracket the one
UF likely will be in you can
pencil in the Gators.
Better yet, use a permanent
marker, because there's no way
this UF team doesn't go to Atlanta
for this year's Final Four.
I know that anything's possible
in a single-elimination tourna-
ment, but no No. 4, 8 or 16 seed
can take down the Gators even
when they play their worst.

Green's second-half rally downs 'Bama

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

The No. 1 UF men's basketball team earned its
17th consecutive victory and tied the longest winning
streak in Gators history Wednesday night in a come-
from-behind 76-67 victory against No. 25 Alabama. UF
also matched school records for wins (24) and home
wins (16) in a regular season.
Point guard Taurean Green saved the Gators (24-2,
11-0 Southeastern Conference) late in the game after a
dismal first-half performance.
Green didn't hit a single one of his six attempts in
the first half, but he ended up making 6 of 7 attempts
in the second half.
He added a 6-of-6 performance from the free-throw
line within the last 1:25 of the game.
"He's got that stuff about him," Donovan said. "He
has got huge guts. He's got huge courage and he's not
afraid. He's got a great will to want to win."
Green led the team with 20 points
and became the second starter to
reach 1,000 points in his career, joining
S Corey Brewer.
Men's "You look at Taurean Green play
Basketball basketball and you can't tell if you're
up or down," Noah said. "He doesn't
let anything get into his head. He's such a clutch play-
er. He's our floor general. He's our leader out there. He
did a great job today."
The first half wasn't pretty for the Gators, who at
one point were behind 22-4.
Errant passes resulted in three turnovers in UF's
firstt6ur possessions.
The Gators' backcourt had difficultly converting 3-
point shots as well, going 1 for 10 in the first half.
During halftime, UF coach Billy Donovan told
Green and senior Lee Humphrey to keep shooting.
The duo responded with two threes each in the .
second half.
The Gators also upped the tempo, which tuckered
out Alabama.
"We started playing our style and started pushing Tim asey / Alligator Staff
it and got the game going faster.," said forward Corey Taurean Green goes up for a shot in UF's 76-67 win against Alabama

SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 19 on Wednesday. Green scored his 1,000th point during the game.

Who are all those people
saying there's too much

There's no parity. There's UF and
then there's everybody else.
That's called domination.
In one of their worst performanc-
es of the year Wednesday night, the

Gators continue strong start with South Florida sweep


By KARL HYPPOLITE

After dropping both games against UF, the
South Florida softball team may begin having
nightmares about Alexandra Gardiner.
Entering Wednesday's doubleheader the
first baseman was just 3'for 14, but her bat
chose the right moments to awaken from its
hibernation.

sparked a three-run inning that gave UF (6-1)'
a 4-1 lead it wouldn't relinquish.
Gardiner let the Bulls (3-4) know who
she was early on as she drove in catcher
Francesca Enea for the first score of UF's 2-1
victory in the first game.
In both games combined she finished with
four hits, three RBI and one run scored, more
than doubling her stats in each category.
Sophomore second baseman Kim

Sophomore pitcher
Stacey Nelson (4-0) showed
grit as she battled through

secutive hits off Nelson, scoring one run and
threatening to take the lead with third base-
man Alison Savarese on second.

Nelson settled down and struck out USF
catcher Laura Wolf on five pitches. Overall,
Nelson had a strong day, striking out seven
batters and bringing her strikeout total to 29
on the season.
After a solid freshman campaign, Nelson
has continued to add to her resume this
season.
For the second straight season, she has
defeated a No. 1 team.

The Twister tournament was held on the Reitz Union Colonnade fromnoon to 2:30 p.m. It was hosted to raise funds for UF's Premed American Medical Student Association. "We thought it would be a lot more fun to have something you can get involved in that people would actually be drawn to," said Case Newsom, a UF junior and a co-director of the committee. "Twister is always a good thing." "We thought it would be a lot more fun to have something you can get involved in that people would actually be drawn to." Case Newsom Co-director of UF's Premed American Medical Student Association When the event began, it cost $5 to play unlimited games of Twister. However, the committee members quickly began accepting donations instead of turning people away. "We just had to adapt to get something for the cause we're working for," Newsom said. The $100 raised from the event will contribute to a Medical Technology Forum that will be held March 25. It will also help bring more medical technology to AMSA's student-run Equal Access Clinic, Newsom said. The clinic helps those who cannot afford regular medical care. Stuffed animals and candy were given to winners. Gators vie for free rings By JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Writer jdasilva@aIuigator.org To ring in a new tradition, the UF Alumni Association is holding a contest to give two students free class rings. The association is taking submissions for the "As Gator as it Gets" contest until 5 p.m. today. Applicants must provide tangible items -such as photos or videos -to prove their Gators pride. Katie Seay, director of memStudent bership and marketing for the Life association, said 16 students have entered so far. "We're looking for passionate, enthusiastic, crazy Gators," Seay said. Seay said the association wanted to attach more meaning to UF's signature class ring, the "Gator Wrap." The design is about 70 years old, and the band is fashioned like two alligators with their mouths open. A group of judges will review the entries this week and pick a male and female winner next week. The winners will receive their prizes at a ceremony in April. Former UF President Stephen C. O'Connell designed the rings when he was Student Body president in the 1930s. O'Connell's widow, Cynthia, who is also a member of UF's Board of Trustees, will speak at the ceremony, Seay said.

The Florida Players sponsored an event Wednesday on the Reitz Union Colonnade to raise money. Ryan Ruby, a third-year theater performance student, played Cupid and kissed students in return for donations. "I must have kissed at least 20 people already, and four or five for free," Ruby said. Ruby, who .has been a member of the Florida Players since his freshman year, only intended to sit in a chair and ask for kisses. Before he knew it, wings were strapped on, a hat was donned, and his Valentine's Day transformation was complete, Ruby said. The Florida Players assistant production manager, Michelle Karst, said the event was a success. She estimated that the group raised about $100 with the booth. The Florida Players production manager, Danny Sharron, said it felt great to spread love and happiness on Valentine's Day. "It's amazing how something so little can brighten someone's life so much," Sharron said. -LANI GERLAK TRAVEL Birthright sign-up begins Registration for TaglitBirthright Israel begins today at 9 a.m. on the program's Web site.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 3 County schools dispense condoms, sex education E BRAZIL STARTS PROVIDING CONTRACEPTIVES TO STUDENTS. By LAUREN TAPLINGER Alligator Contributing Writer Brazil's health ministry vowed Tuesday to put condom vending machines in schools as part of an AIDS prevention program, but health officials in the United States doubt that furnishing schools with contraception is the solution to risks associated with irresponsible sexual activity. Valerie Prince, a sexual health specialist and student outreach coordinator for the Student Health Care Center, said people also need to be educated. "A dispenser doesn't teach you how to use a condom or how to make responsible decisions," she said. Patricia Hughes, health services supervisor for Alachua County public schools, said the school district offers contraception and provides sexual education to students through the school health departments. "We give out condoms and we teach them how to use it," Hughes said. Prince said that school administrations and politics control the kind of sexual education taught on campus. She added that Brazil's health minister, Agenor Alvares, didn't have "We give out condoms and we teach them how to use it." Patricia Hughes Alachua County health services supervisor full support when he made his decision to install condom machines in schools. A comparable situation occurred recently with Texas Gov. Rick Perry's executive order requiring sixth-grade girls to be vaccinated against human papillomavirus, which also faced opposition, Prince said. Theme are different types of sexual educelion. Abstinence-only curriculums advocate sexual abstinence before marriage, while human growth and development curriculums promote abstinence and also provide information about contraception, safer sex and sexual orientation. Hughes said the schools in Alachua County offer human growth and development education. Prince said that contraceptive education doesn't encourage sexual activity but rather helps teens delay sexual activity, increase their contraceptive use and decrease their number of partners. Hughes said she is satisfied with the sexual education programs in Alachua County. She credited the school nurses with the success of their programs.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 PUBLIC HEALTH Men await approval for their version of HPV vaccine By BRITTANY DAVIS Alligator Writer bdavis@alligator.org UF's Student Health Care Center will not vaccinate men against human papillomavirus until the Food and Drug Administration approves the use of the product for men. Last summer, Merck & Co. released Gardasil, a vaccine that reduces the risk of contracting HPV. This vaccine has only been approved for women between 9 and 26 years old. Others who want protection against HPV may have to wait until Merck finalizes its research and the FDA gives it approval to sell the drug. "The FDA wants to find out: Does it work? And is it safe?" said Dr. Phillip Barkley, director of the health care center. Merck spokeswoman Jennifer Allen said the company is currently researching the effects of Gardasil on men between 9 and 23 years old, and she expects it to have conclusive data before 2008. Although no men have inquired about the shot while Barkley has been at the health care center, he said a few nurses have had requests from men. At least 200 women have been vaccinated at the health care center, Barkley said. HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that infects about 50 percent of sexually active people during their lives, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If the product is approved for men, Barkley said he would recommend men get vaccinated because HPV can cause Barkley genital warts. And men can pass on the strains that cause cervical cancer to their sexual partners. There are over 100 strands of HPV, but many of the subtypes do not cause infection and they clear up on their own. Building construction junior Ryan Tempone said he thinks some men would get the shot if it were approved. "I think men would be interested in protecting their partners, and I would spend the money to get it if it was available to me," he said. Vaccination against HPV consists of three injections at about $150 each. Dr. Guy Benrubi, the chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at the UF Health Science Center in Jacksonville, said men could get the vaccine at many doctor's offices, but the cost would not be covered by insurance companies. He suggested to his 22-year-old son that he get the shots, primarily to protect himself against genital warts, Benrubi said. There is also evidence that the vaccine would help prevent anal and rectal cancer in men, he said. "There are a lot of benefits we are going to see downstream from this vaccine, not just cervical cancer," he said. For the vaccine to be substantially effective in decreasing cervical cancer in women, he said men must also be vaccinated. "You can't get rid of the flu by vaccinating only one-half of the people who could potentially have it," he said. To date, Merck has marketed Gardasil toward girls as young as 9 years old. Allen, Merck's spokeswoman, suspects the product will also be marketed toward 9-year-old boys when it becomes available. Some Facts: -Gardasil is highly effective in preventing four types of HPV in young women who have not previously been exposed to HPV. -Gardasil targets HPV types that cause up to 70 percent of all cervical cancers and about 90 percent of genital warts. -The American Cancer Society predicts that there will be about 11,150 new cases of invasive cervical cancer in the United States in 2007. About 3,670 women will die from this disease in 2007. -The length of vaccine protection is usually not known when a vaccine is first introduced. So far, studies have found that vaccinated persons are protected for five years. Source: The Centers fAr Disease Centrol ad Prsntin Web site and the American Cancer Society Web site. Science majors get shot at off-campus sumer research N THE UF PROGRAM WILL AWARD 10 STUDENTS. By JOANNA BLAZ Alligator Writer From studying malaria in France to working alongside a Nobel laureate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, science majors at UF will have the opportunity to conduct research off campus this summer through the Science for Life research program. The program will give 10 awards of about $2,500 each to juniors and seniors to do research around the country and overseas. "They can gain experience and be exposed to another culture," said Ben Dunn, associate director of the Science for Life program. The deadline for students to apply is March 1. The money funding the awards comes from a grant of $6 million, with $1.5 million coming from the Howard. Hughes Medical Institute and the UF rest from eight Res-airc colleges and various UF institutes. "The whole idea behind Science for Life is to get students involved as soon as possible," Science for Life Program Director Randy Duran said. To promote early involvement, a one-credit class was created to match science majors with researchers in their fields of interest. "We're hoping the experience gets them personal contact with professors," Dunn said. "Up until now, students have had to work to find professors." Dunn said many students have been successful in using the class to network with professors and researchers. Science for Life has also started a science education minor, which prepares students to teach science in grades six through 12. Program directors are also using the grant to open a new laboratory in the UF Health Science Center to help create more undergraduate research. "We're trying to equip the lab with more than $500,000 of life-science equipment," Duran said. "We want to be way far ahead of other places and give students the time of their life." seCiwach ki Classic Carwash FAH Dea.Aig -WindTrntig 3015 SW Archer Rd. 374.9227 4 F-----I Ed's Photography www.edgaloustian.com I 352-335-4459 weddings -portraits -passport glamour -head shots -events I SuppoRT GROUP fOR Adult Adopted Persons ANd Birthparents FOR MORE INIORMATiON CAl: Marcia Manning Wilson, Ed.S 378-9531 Flory Antiga Nodell, M.S.W. 371-0316 or 376-5186 Sa Real People.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5 Low-emission rental cars get noticed By JOEY CHINDAMO Alligator Writer jchindamo@alligator.org UF's new pay-per-drive program, which is intended to cut down on campus traffic and pollution, has had more than 50 people sign up since its inception in January. The Flexcar program provides UTF students, faculty and staff access to eight lowemission vehicles parked on campus. Allan Preston, coordinator of the Physical Plant Division's Quality Office, wrote in an email that there are currently 56 faculty, students or staff and 10 UTF departments registered for the program. Preston wrote that Flexcar is one of many initiatives at UF geared to limit negative environmental impact on campus. To limit emissions, UF requested as many hybrid vehicles as possible. Three of the eight cars are Honda Civic Hybrids, Preston wrote. Preston wrote that the other five vehicles are "highmileage and rate average or better on (the Environmental Protection Agency)'s air pollution score and greenhouse gas score." If UF brings more Flexcar vehicles to campus, they will be hybrid or alternative-fuel vehicles where possible. "We believe that the Flexcar program will have a lasting beneficial impact on campus," Preston wrote. "In the future, we are hoping that more faculty, staff and students will commute to campus and use Flexcar for vehicle transportation rather than bringing cars onto campus." It costs $5.50 per hour or $55 per day to rent a car, on top of an annual membership fee of $40. A $35 application Nicole Satker / Alligator Stat? A Honda Element, one of the six Flexcar options available on campus, sits parked near the Fine Arts C building. A wide range of vehicles are parked in several on-campus locations. charge is also required for membership, according to the Flexcar Web site. "We believe that the Flexcar program will have a lasting beneficial impact on campus." Allan Preston Physical Plant Division's Quality Office coordinator Bob Miller, UF's associate vice president for finance and administration, addressed Flexcar's role in the university's push for sustainability' which is as simple as recycling or as complex as constructing a building that uses more natural light and less air conditioning. "It's really part of a coordinated effort by UF to reduce single-occupancy vehicle traffic, which cuts down on carbon emissions," Miller said. There are no restrictions for what Flexcar vehicles can be used for because members pay for the vehicles by hourly or daily rates, he said. Miller explained that Flexcar encourages the use of carpools and public transportation to campus because it eliminates the need to own a vehicle. "If you caught the bus to work and got a call -'My son broke his arm' -I can go get a Flexcar and take care of this unexpected occurrence instead of driving a car every day."

Smith and Tobin Wagstaff, the director of the drum school, are trying to work things out, but an agreement has been difficult to reach. The drum line holds rehearsals from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Smith's office doesn't close until 6:30 p.m. Wagstaff said changing the rehearsal schedule would affect 50 to 100 people, although Around he said he has been Gl81letStin Vill playing quieter for the first half-hour of rehearsals. "I'm happy trying to work with our neighbors, but there's no reason to be so selfishly desensitized to what they're doing to us," Wagstaff said. For other noisemakers in town, like garage bands, Gainesville's noise ordinances can be restrictive. City codes hold that a noise whether it is a stereo or a lawn mower -is in violation of ordinances if it disturbs a reasonable person of normal sensitivities or is plainly audible at a distance of 200 feet or more. Will Kenneth, a journalism senior at UF, heard about the Studio Percussion complaint from a post on GainesvilleBands.com. Kenneth is the lead guitarist in a band called The Factor, and he said it's difficult to play in a local band because of Gainesville's ordinances.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 Gator The party formerly known as Swamp With the announcement of the Gator Party platform Tuesday night for the Student Government Spring elections come the questions. This party's had more name changes than Prince -perhaps you remember the Gator Party from its previous stint as the Swamp Party or before that .the Gator Party. But no matter which way you slice it, it's still the Greek Party through and through. And it's still more of the same. But we won't fault the new crew for that. Innocent until proven guilty, right? And on to the platform issues we go! One of the major features of Gator Party's platform is transferring CD course packs onto WebCT so students can access them for free. Presidential candidate Ryan Moseley has been working on this project as the current Student Body treasurer, and we think it's a pretty good onei Many CD course packs cost more than $50 -some even more than $100 -and most cannot be resold during buyback. That means every student who takes Age of Dinosaurs -hundreds each semester -is stuck with some software he or she will never use again. Well, maybe as a coaster. But if the Gator Party can put course packs online at a reasonable cost, we'll get behind them. But one issue we aren't so sure about is the party's proposal for streaming video feeds of the Commuter and Parkand-Ride lots. We know the Southwest Recreation Center has Webcams so students can check how busy the place is before they trek all the way down there, and that's pretty helpful. But the thing is, people can be pretty flexible about when they go to the gym. But if you have class at 9:35 a.m., you don't have much choice -you'll need to get on campus regardless of how full the parking lots are. And since students have the same classes week in and week out, there shouldn't be too much variation in how packed the parking lots are. So why should SG spend thousands of dollars for a couple of cameras that really won't affect people's decisions or help them out? The Gator Party is also jumping on the sustainable energy bandwagon, and we couldn't be happier. But who could really oppose such an important issue? They also say they will provide more recycling bins on campus -during exam week. We're kind of confused. Why just exam week? Gator Party President Yooni Yi said that these things can't happen right away, and there will eventually be have more recycling bins year-round. But how much more is there to it than buying the containers? And why do we have to wait until exam week to get them? We support the concept of reviving Chomp the Vote, but we have a few concerns. Chomp the Vote has not exactly been active this school year under the Swamp Party's watch. And many of the candidates in the Gator Party are the same. Plus, there isn't much point in spending time and money on this now -the deadlines for Alachua County registration have passed for the upcoming city elections, and there won't be any other elections until 2008. To bring up Chomp the Vote now is just spouting empty rhetoric. That money -until election season is once again upon us -should be spent on something more pressing. i l the independent florida alligator Jessica Riffel EDITOR Kat Laskowski MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger Leigh Shapiro Jonathan Tietz EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

The modern battle cry is no cry at all -it's the distant and anonymous voice of a prerecorded telephone operator saying, "Aim for the lights in the sky." On Jan. 11 China fired a ballistic missile into space, blowing an old weather satellite of theirs to pieces in order to test their latest anti-satellite weaponry. It's preparing for a battle for the heavens -one with incalculable costs. Knocking out an enemy's Global Positioning System satellites and spy satellites would prove devastating in an overseas war. But that's not the worst. The satellite shattered into hundreds of large fragments, potentially speeding up what scientists believe to be an inevitable chain reaction of satellite collisions in the earth's orbit. If a functioning satellite collided with an orbiting fragment and shattered, this would add to the amount of junk in orbit. The debris would eventually reach a point of "critical mass" when no satellite would be able to.avoid a collision. Earth would be surrounded by its own junk. Modern technology comes with more consequences -especially regarding war. We've already seen our share of biological warfare. It dates as far back as the early 18th century, when British forces distributed blankets carrying smallpox to Native Americans. We saw Saddam's employment of chemical warfare in his mass killing of the Kurds. We saw the anthrax letters of 2001. Chemical warfare is cold and detached, even by a murder's heartless standards, and it's becoming increasingly possibly eo use chemical warfare as a tool for Todd Portnowitz betterscalligator.org mass execution. The Cold War saw the advent of a nuclear arms race, a race that still runs in dark tunnels away from the public spotlight. The strongest deterrent for using a nuclear weapon now isn't compassion for human life, but Mutual Assured Destruction, or MAD -a fitting acronym. You blow us up, we'll blow you up, so we might as well not fight. Modern peace in a nutshell. Eight nations are known to currently possess nuclear weapons, with Israel an unconfirmed ninth. Now an increasing number of rogue nations, not exactly known for their friendliness, are gaining nuclear capabilities. Last Tuesday, North Korea agreed to close a nuclear reactor in exchange for $400 million in aid. Even the idea of the bomb can be used as leverage. It seems strange that the United States expects countries to drop their nuclear pursuits while we, of course, are the world's leading producer of nuclear weapons and are not exactly known for our friendlessness either. The truth is, we're scared. We're all scared of what we're capable of -ending life on earth for no good reason. Everyone is picking up their guns, preparing for the world war in every crystal ball. It sounds backward, but this global weapon building and war preparation seems to be increasing the chances of -if not entirely causing -a war much larger than Iraq. Soon we'll be digging graves for soldiers who haven't died yet. Todd Portnowitz is a junior majoring in English. His column appears on Thursdays.

Pelosi's requested plane costs tax payers too much In Jennifer Nestler's letter to the editor Tuesday, she attempted to portray Nancy Pelosi's request for a military jet as just a routine measure taken with no qualms. This is fine, but it is the means by which Speaker of the House Pelosi and her supporters are going about this that is out of line. The jet Pelosi requested seats 42, has an open bar and would cost taxpayers $22,000 an hour to operate. Along with this, in reference to former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert's plane, she has stated that as a female speaker, she wants the same opportunities as former male speakers. Since when has this become about her sex? To add insult, her second-in-command, Rep. John Murtha, has said that it would be a "mistake" if information about her request were leaked by the Pentagon, as Pelosi controls its allocations. It's not a problem providing a suitable jet for Speaker Pelosi to provide for her security, but for the party that ran on cutting down on the so-called "unnecessary actions" made by President Bush in the name of national security, isn't this extravagance in the name of security just a tad much? She should focus on helping the American people, not on her privileges as speaker. Ben Grove treasurer, UF College Republicans M EU, Better ways for UF to spend money than on goodies I am writing in response to the column, "Free annual apparel, gifts would improve UF school spirit." In the past five years as a UF student, I have attended countless university events, free to both students and the public, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 where free T-shirts and other Gators gear were distributed to dedicated fans. Certainly, other institutions may give away free apparel and gifts to incoming students, but I would rather this university allocate its funds to maintaining cheap tuition for students, hiring more faculty and continuing free student admission to nearly every UF athletic event. I agree that giving away T-shirts to incoming students is an inexpensive means of generating school spirit across campus, but I never needed free swag to feel proud to be a Florida Gator. Perhaps instead of aiming to attire the remaining 10 percent of Gainesville -which, in Mr. Hagan's opinion, constitutes seemingly alienated Gators fans -why not provide free clothing to the nearly 1,200 homeless in our community?

You can't blame OSU for neighboring with a big city, but for goodness' sake, clean it up. Yeah, the South Campus Gateway is nice, but I'll take the secluded Gainesville scene any day. Another feature that added to the beauty of Gainesville was its scenery. I know it sounds cheesy, but it makes a difference. Palm trees are nice, and Spanish moss is even better. The city was clean, and people were out and about. There was a buzz, an energy. But the clincher for me was the atmosphere. UF really felt like a college town in ways you can't even describe. No matter where you go, you never feel "off-campus." Students were everywhere, and there seemed to be a sense of pride and community that we lose on our giant campus. OSU, being such a large place, often feels that way. There isn't really a college-town feel, but more of an urban vibe. Florida enrolls more than 50,000 students as well, but has the comfort of 20,000. So what does all this have to do with football? My point is this: The quality, tradition and overall support of both teams are about equal. But what about the other eight months of the year? Sunny Florida or gray Ohio? Classy Gainesville or dumpy Columbus? Palm or deciduous? I'll take the former on all three. Reality is harsh. Sorry OSU, Florida wins again. Kevin Homan is an Ohio State University student.

VANESSA DIMAGGIO 0 AVENUE WRITER Jeremiah Wilson /Alligator Staff Mike Collins, a UF alumnus, belts out a tune Monday evening at Common Grounds during its weekly karaoke night. I was a karaoke virgin before this week. I am scared out of my mind to perform in front of a bunch of people I've never met before, I don't know how to sing, and I am not outgoing. But I was determined to break out of my shell in what turned out to be a storm of karaoke appearances. My first experience came at Common Grounds Coffeehouse. Hoping to make it as awkward as possible, I chose Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It." (Keep in mind that I am a dorky white girl.) If you think it's hard to follow words on a prompter to a song you're familiar with, try following words to a rap you haven't heard since 1998. It was impossible. I read as fast as I could, but alas, I discovered I have no future as a rapper. Despite my inability to keep up with the prompter and the strange bouncing motion I developed on the part that goes "na na na na na. na na," I managed to get a few claps. They may have been pity claps, but at least they were cheering for me. My next encounter was at University Club. The crowd seemed to like slow ballads, so I performed a very intense (and dare I say, soulful) rendition of Lionel Richie's "Hello." I finished my week of karaoke at Market Street Pub. I opted to sing with two friends and a strange man who joined us halfway through for a performance of Pat Benatar's "Love is a Battlefield." The crowd went wild. That's something I discovered: The crowd is gonna go wild no matter what you do -as long as you have fun with it. My biggest piece of advice for first-time karaoke-goers is this: Don't take yourself too seriously. People are just there to have a good time, and they actually expect you not to be able to sing. In fact, as an observer, the people you're surprised by are the ones who actually do have talent. Pick a song everyone likes so that the crowd can sing along with you. More importantly, pick a song you know. It's easier to remain animated when your eyes aren't glued to the monitor. It's amazing how therapeutic getting up on a stage and performing for a bunch of strangers can be. Whether you need help coming out of your shell or you just want a good laugh, karaoke is the way to go.

Three weeks later, we have continued to have sex but it still only lasts three minutes. She is being very supportive and keeps telling me it doesn't bother her, but I can't help thinking she is just saying that to be nice. I really want to make this special for her. Is there anything I can do? Thanks, Anonymously Embarrassed better when you're relaxed, so don't overanalyze every move. Pay attention to what she likes and try new things. Remember that your girlfriend cares about you and is supportive. I've said before that the keys to good sex are comfort and practice. Because you decided to lose your virginities to each other, you most likely have the comfort part down. You just need practice. Very few people are awesome in bed their first time. Sex is like any other blood-pumping activity: The more you do it, the better you get. So get to it! I have three at once! It's hard to juggle phone calls and invites to hang out.

T10 dern vines KAEKENNEDY AVENUE WRITER__________ new generation has bro/ ken the cask wide open -in search of a casual yet sophisticated pastime. Wine drinking has made its way into college life at UF, and its popularity continues to increase. "We started wine tasting five years ago, and it's been growing ever since," said Dani Wiley, a waitress at Bistro 1245. The wine of old has typically been relegated to either yuppie dinner parties, fancy restaurants with white linen tablecloths or Holy Communion. It used to be almost exclusively associated with urban areas crawling with wealthy and worldly professionals in their mid-30s who drive sports cars and schmooze with executives at fancy restaurants. The demographic has grown to include young adults from 22 to 30 years old who not only enjoy the occasional wine tasting with friends but see it as a lifetime skill in which they are investing. am getting more and more interested in it," said Sharmini Pitter, a UF senior. She is taking a leisure course in wine tasting this semester and is contemplating owning her own vineyard someday. The demand for the course was so great this semester that there was a lengthy waiting list to get in. The course teaches students about wine etiquette, proper glassware, food and wine pairings, wine labels and different wine-producing regions of the world. Instructor Tom Stone emphasizes responsible consumption, saying that the goal with wine tasting is "quality, not quantity." Having been in the alcohol and wine industries for 10 years as a wine broker and salesperson, he has seen changes in the market firsthand. He encourages his students to go out and use their new-found skills at wine tastings and highly recommends "A Celebration of Wine," which will be held Sunday in the Reitz Union. At the annual event, which benefits two public radio stations, sommeliers and novices alike can sample more than 300 wines and complement their drinks with food, coffee and desserts from local vendors. ith classes and tastings abounding, wine education is becoming easier for the everyday aficionado. With the Internet as a resource, wine lovers can prepare their palates at home and whip out wine lingo and trivia in a public setting. Patricia Borzych hosts weekly wine tastings in the old wine shop at Caf6 Gardens. She says she has noticed that her patrons are coming in with noticeable previous knowledge about wine. "I can tell they are more educated," she said. Borzych, a former UF student, said she has always been a wine drinker. "The only difference is that now I drink better wine," Borzych said. Robbie Fipes, co-manager of Dorn's Liquors and Wine Warehouse, said that in the five years he has been working at the 25-year-old establishment, he has witnessed a marked change in the age of his clientele. "There has been a distinct trend towards 20-somethings and 30somethings at our wine tastings," he said. "It really amazes us." He attributes this to a range of Wine trend expands to younger crowd Luanne Dietz / Alligator Staff Anca Grigore, a hostess at Bistro 1245, works Sunday evening during the restaurant's wine tasting. Grigore has developed friendships with regular wine-tasting customers. different reasons, increased world travel being one of them. Especially in wine-producing countries like France, Spain and more recently South Africa, the bittersweet nectar is as free-flowing as the Seine in the summertime. Many students who study abroad become accustomed to drinking wine with meals or in social situations and continue to do so when they return home. -UF sophomore Emily Archer spent last Spring semester in Paris. "If your group didn't order alcohol at a restaurant, it was considered rude," she said. Archer periodically reunites with her fellow Francophiles, and she says wine is always an essential part of the gathering. n the past, the price of quaity wine has been a major deterrent for younger people. "It used to be hard to find a good wine for $6 or $8," Fipes said. "Now there is better wine being made at a cheaper price point." The Holy Grail of cheap wines is called Charles Shaw, affectionately nicknamed "Two Buck Chuck." Produced in California, it sells for a thrifty $1.99 at Trader Joe's Markets. Despite the increasing appreciation that college students have for fine wines, cheap wine is no stranger to college campuses. An underground movement called "Slapping the Bag" has surfaced as a slightly disturbing, yet strangely refreshing alternative to the usual kegger. In every box of the universally disparaged Franzia brand wine, there is an industrial strength plastic bag that contains the sacred sap. Participants remove the bag from the box and openhand smack it as hard as possible in a vain attempt to break it like a pinata. Once the bag deems a slapper acceptable, he or she is allowed to drink from its spout. "There's no real reason to slap it, but if anyone asks, it's to activate the sugars," said SFCC junior Christina Lippelnan, a veteran slapper and self-proclaimed charter member of the original UF bag slappers. "I brought it to my group of friends at UP," she said, but she's only heard of isolated groups around campus and some fraternities slapping the bag. "It's still not very popular yet," she said. books Local author uses-shrunken heads as subject of novel CARLY BLUSTEIN 0 AVENUE WRITER. same theme came while researching that book," Castner said.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Speights shines off bench, sits second half BASKETBALL, frompage 20 Brewer, who finished with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals. After not playing a minute against Kentucky, center Marreese Speights was an integral part in the Gators' victory. The freshman acted as a defibrillator to revive the Gators in the first half, scoring 8 points, grabbing one rebound and swatting one shot in 5 minutes. "I told Marreese on Monday, don't be discouraged, don't get down because the team we're getting ready to play is the perfect game for you to play in," Donovan said. "You've got to be ready to go." Speights said he was just happy to aid the Gators in the victory, but-the smile on his face during the game said it all. Speights was a crowd favorite and, at one point, he turned to the student section to flash that mega-watt smile. "I love the Rowdy Reptiles," Speights said. "They give us so much energy. I just love it, so I was just showing them some love." Donovan didn't play Speights in the second half, saying UF needed its experienced players on the floor. A 17-4 run in the second half put the Gators up 56-54 at 9:24 to give UF its first lead of the game. 'The difference was we shot 63 percent in the second half and we held them to 37 Speights percent," Donovan said. "It was really our defense that got us back in the game." The Gators showed their resilience and forward Joakim Noah was proud of their effort. "Right now, we have everything, but we have to playlike *we don't have anything," Noah said. Gators enter polls for first time SOFT, from page 20 Last season, Nelson defeated then-defending champion Michigan and the Gators defeated No. 1 Arizona on Saturday. Senior pitcher Stacey Stevens (2-1) continued her strong play. She threw her third complete game of the season but needed the help of her defense to get the victory. USF got six hits off Stevens but was unable to drive them in. -"We're a great defensive team," Stevens said on Tuesday, "and as a groundball pitcher I'm dependent on my defense to get outs for me." Before the games, Stevens described the UF-USF matchup > as a great in-state rivalry, but it has been one-sided recently. The Gators have now defeated the Bulls in eight of their past nine meetings. Softball GATORS RANKED: After starting the season unranked, UF has gained the attention of the country and is ranked for the first time this season. The USA Today/ NFCA poll has the Gators at No. 20 and the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll has them at No. 19. GONZO, from page 20 champion Gators last night? UF looked so bored against the opposition that it spotted Alabama 18 points with its lackluster 22-4 performance in the game's first 7 minutes. I guess the Gators needed a challenge. College basketball isn't providing it for them. But what will it take for a team to defeat UF? "I don't .know," said UF forward Corey Brewer, who paused for a moment, then scratched his head, laughed and replied, "Well, I'm not going to tell you." I don't think there is an answer. The only one I can conceive is mononucleosis, which sidelined Brewer and led to the Gators' only two defeats this season -Florida State and Kansas. The fact is the Gators are 24-2 and 11-0 in conference play. They are dominating college basketball and haven't even played to their potential in a month. I was just a child in 1992, but history tells me UF is looking a whole lot like that year's Duke. UF has three players who are on pace for 1,000 career points. Wednesday night, Taurean Green became the second current player to reach the milestone. Duke had four 1,500 point scorers on its squad. Defending its crown in 1992, the Blue Devils went 34-2. Should UF win out, it would also have two blemishes on its record. And the biggest characteristic that both teams share can't be found in any record book. They both play with an unselfishness that no team can match. It's only mid-February, but when filling out the San Antonio region on your bracket -the one UF likely will be in -you can pencil in the Gators. Better yet, use a permanent marker, because there's no way this UF team doesn't go to Atlanta for this year's Final Four. I know that anything's possible in a single-elimination tournament, but no No. 4, 8 or 16 seed can take down the Gators -even when they play their worst.

He added a 6-of-6 performance from the free-throw line within the last 1:25 of the game. "He's got that stuff about him," Donovan said. "He has got huge guts. He's got huge courage and he's not afraid. He's got a great will to want to win." Green led the team with 20 points ~ and became the second starter to reach 1,000 points in his career, jommg Corey Brewer. Men's "You look at Taurean Green play Basketball basketball and you cant tell if you're up or down," Noah said. "He doesn't let anything get into his head. He's such a clutch player. He's our floor general. He's our leader out there. He did a great job today." The first half wasn't pretty for the Gators, who at one point were behind 22-4. Errant passes resulted in three turnovers in UF'sP firstst*ur possessions. The Gators' backcourt had difficultly converting 3point shots as well, going 1 for 10 in the first half. During halftime, UF coach Billy Donovan told Green and senior Lee Humphrey to keep shooting. The duo responded with two threes each in the second half. The Gators also upped the tempo, which tuckered out Alabama. "We started playing our style and started pushing Tim Casey Alligatorstaff it and got the game going faster.," said forward Corey Taurean Green goes up for a shot in UF's 76-67 win against Alabama SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 19 on Wednesday. Green scored his 1,000th point during the game. ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF SOFTBALL Gators continue strong start with South Florida sweep By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer After dropping both games against U, the South Florida softball team maybegin having nightmares about Alexandra Gardiner. Entering Wednesday's doubleheader the first baseman was just 3 for 14, but her bat chose the right moments to awaken from its hibernation. Cvdiner's home run broke a 1-1 tie in the Men's Basketball LSU 70 Mississippi 71 South Carolina Vanderbilt 68 78 top of the seventh of the second game and sparked a three-run inning that gave UF (6-1) a 4-1 lead it wouldn't relinquish. Gardiner let the Bulls (3-4) know who she was early on as she drove in catcher Francesca Enea for the first score of UF's 2-1 victory in the first game. In both games combined she finished with four hits, three RBI and one run scored, more than doubling her stats in each category. Sophomore second baseman Kim Waleszonia had a big night, going 3 for 4 and EUF swimming coach Gregg Troy won the Southeastern Conference men's Coach of the Year. Freshman Roland Rudolf also took an award, winning SEC Freshman of the Year. driving in senior outfielder Lacy Howard with a twoout double in the Gators' big seventh inning. Sophomore pitcher Stacey Nelson (4-0) showed grit as she battled through a fourth-inning jam. Gardiner The Bulls got three consecutive hits off Nelson, scoring one run and threatening to take the lead with third baseman Alison Savarese on second. N 1986: With leading scorers Drew Moten and Vernon Maxwell struggling, Ronnie Montgomery led a late charge as the men's basketball team defeated Georgia 71-70. Nelson settled down and struck out USF catcher Laura Wolf on five pitches. Overall, Nelson had a strong day, striking out seven batters and bringing her strikeout total to 29 on the season. After a solid freshman campaign, Nelson has continued to add to her resume this season. For the second straight season, she has defeated a No. 1 team.

Champs sit lonely atop college hoops ho are all those people saying there's too much parity in college basketball? There's no parity. There's UF and then there's everybody else. That's called domination. In one of their worst performances of the year Wednesday night, the No. 1 Gators prevailed against another ranked opponent, 7667 against No. 25 Alabama, which has been as high Antonio as No. 4 this Gonzalez season. Going Going Gonzo Not since Gonzalez igato onz the 1991-92 Duke Blue Devils has a team looked so much better than the rest of the nation. In fact, it's not even close. This year, the disparity in -college basketball is easy to measure: 26 points. That's by how much the Gators pummeled the nation's secondranked team -Ohio State -in December. Sure, it was another sluggish start for.UF, facing an 18-point deficit -its largest of the season -but was there ever a realistic chance the Crimson Tide would unseat the SEE GONZO, PAGE 19
