UF ADMINISTRATION


Trustees to talk fees


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Budget cuts and extra fees will be the
leading issues discussed today and Friday
by UF's highest governing body, the Board
of Trustees.
UF's Cost Reduction and Efficiency Task
Force will update a trustee committee on the
university's efforts to trim $34 million from its
budget.
Earlier this year, UF hired the Huron
Consulting Group to help the task force cut
costs and bring in more revenue.
In October, the task force suggested a $10
transcript fee. UF will begin charging the fee
February 2008.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley,
who is also a UF trustee, said he's OK with
the transcript fee but hopes the amount will
be negotiable.
Another trustee panel, the Finance and
Facilities Commnittee, will be asked to approve
UF's 2007-2008 operating budget, which to-
tals nearly $3 billion.
The budget includes this spring's 5 percent
tuition increase, which will bring more than
$2,000 during the spring.
The Educational Policy and Strategy
Committee will discuss a potential $2-per-
credit-hour fee that UF will charge in spring
for online classes.
The fee would cover the cost of using the
e-Learning system and would not be included
in tuition or covered by Bright Futures.
Colleges and departments will also be


allowed to charge a Distance Learning fee to
cover costs of providing courses away from
UF's campus.
Moseley said he thinks some money from
a newly approved 5 percent technology fee
could be used to cover Distance Learning
courses.
The Florida Legislature and Gov. Charlie
Crist approved the fee in October.
UF will begin charging it in fall 2009, and it
is set to amass about $4 million each year.

"There was a decision to go
online, and at that point, students
didn't know there would be a fee."
Ryan Moseley
UF Student Body president

"There was a decision to go online, and at
that point, students didn't know there would
be a fee," Moseley said. "They're retroactively
trying to charge it."
Student Government would lobby in
spring to add more student input into how
the technology fee is used, he added.
In a letter to Machen, Patricia Telles-Irvin,
vice president for student affairs, recom-
mended that the UF Activity & Service Fee
increase by 42 cents per credit hour. That fee
funds student organizations, the Reitz Union
and Rec Sports.
She wrote that the UF Student Health Fee
should increase by 62 cents per credit hour,
the Transportation Fee should increase by 62
cents per hour, and the Athletic Fee should
stay the same.

Second shooting suspect arrested at local motel


E THE SUSPECT HAS BEEN
CHARGED WITH A FELONY.

By APRIL DUDASH -
Alligator Writer

A second suspect in a Sunday
downtown shooting was arrested
Wednesday morning.
Okpara Kehinde Nelson, 22,
was arrested around 6 a.m. at the
Scottish Inn on Southwest 13th
Street, a release from the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office stated.
Nelson is believed to be the


shooter in the death of 22-year-old
Andrew David Arosemena, the
release stated.
Nelson has been charged with
a first-degree felony, jail records
stated.
Alachua County Warrants
Investigator Broderick Robinson
made the arrest.
Arosemena was the passenger
of a maroon 2000 Lincoln Town
Car and was waiting to get out of
the Southwest Downtown Parking
Garage Sunday morning when the
incident occurred.
Arosemena yelled "hurry up" to


a blue car blocking traffic.
Nelson and Antwan Maurice
Maye, 25, had been speaking with
the passengers of the blue car.
Taking offense to the statement,
they walked over and pulled out
handguns, the report stated.
While Maye and
Local Arosemena were
News arguing, Nelson
reached into the car
and shot Arosemena
in the head, the police report
stated.
Nelson told Maye the shooting
was an accident, the report stated.


Arosemena went to Shands at
UF with life-threatening injuries
and died Sunday afternoon.
Sheriff's office spokesman Sgt.
Keith Faulk said the office contact-
ed Nelson's relatives Tuesday to see
if Nelson would turn himself in.
Robinson met with a family
member of Nelson's at the motel to
try to negotiate a surrender, Faulk
said.
Nelson was found inside the
room and arrested without inci-
dent, the release stated.
He refused to talk, Faulk said.
Investigators usually have forms


of backup and don't serve warrants
by themselves, he said.
Robinson was alone because he
didn't expect Nelson to be there,
Faulk said.
The small caliber handgun that
may have been used in the shoot-
ing was found Tuesday in a lake in
rural Gilchrist County.
"Now we are preparing the case
for the state attorney," Gainesville
Police Department spokesman Lt.
Keith Kameg said.
Nelson is being held at the
Alachua County Jail without bond,
the police report stated.

UF Foundation plans on-campus burial site for fans


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Thanks to UF officials, die-hard
Gators fans might never have to
leave campus and they mean
never.
The UF Foundation, UF's fund-
raising organization, will present a
plan to UF's Board of Trustees to in-
stall a site on UF's campus for alum-
ni and other Swamp enthusiasts to
rest in orange-and-blue peace.
-The memorial, known as a co-
lumbarium, will protect and honor


ash-filled urns kept in individual
niches.
The plan will be presented
this afternoon to the Finance and
Facilities Committee of UF's Board
of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body.
The foundation does not need
the board to approve the plans, said
Paul Robell, UF vice president for
development and alumni affairs.
Foundation officials are only seek-
ing feedback.
Robell said the idea of a UF rest-
ing place has been bouncing around
for about a year.


""-We're an increasingly
mobile society."
Paul Robell
UF vice president for development
and alumni affairs

The foundation has talked to
other universities with similar
memorials and to some vendors,
but the cost of building the burial
ground is still unknown, he said. It
depends on demand.
Inhabiting one of the spots would
probably cost about $3,000, which


Robell said would pay for installa-
tion, landscaping and upkeep.
The columbarium would not
generate any extra revenue for UF,
he added.
Robell said he thinks the memo-
rial would be attractive to alumni
because it promises permanence.
"We're an increasingly mobile
society," he said. "We don't have the
same kind of roots we used to have
when people were born in a town
and stayed there all their lives."
The foundation has its sights on
the University Gardens near Lake
Alice for the construction because


that spot is quiet and secluded, he
said.
So far, there hasn't been over-
whelming demand from alumni
for the columbarium, but he said he
thinks that's only because it hasn't
been offered.
He said other universities with
similar memorials, such as the
University of Notre Dame and the
Citadel, have had no problem with
demand.
Construction on UF's columbar-
ium will not start until the founda-
tion has sold a significant amount of
niches, he said.


Narcotics unit established


Harrison Diamond / Alligator
Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell speaks about the new narcotics unit at a news con-
ference Wednesday.


Four groups


partnered up

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Local law enforcement officers an-
nounced the formation of a multi-agen-
cy narcotics unit Wednesday afternoon.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office,
the Gainesville Police Department, the
University Police Department and the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement
helped plan the partnership.
GPD Chief Norman Botsford said
narcotics is the most important unit,
because illegal drugs make up a large
portion of crime in Gainesville.
Botsford had been working with
Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell
for months on reforming the narcotics
unit.
It had been nine years since GPD and
the sheriff's office worked together on a
narcotics level, Darnell said.


In the past, egos and territorial is-
sues have stood in the way of successful
working relationships, she said.
As a former GPD captain, Darnell
said she remembers the tension between
GPD and the sheriff's office.
Botsford said he is working with
Darnell to form more multi-agency op-
erations.
"Neither one of us has any territorial
problems sharing credit
Local with the others," he said.
News Darnell said more co-
operative programs will
include traffic enforcement
and domestic violence.
As part of the ceremony, Darnell
swore in city and university officers as
deputy sheriffs.
She said there has been no reluctance
from staff toward the partnership.
"We trust the people who are as-
signed to the unit," Darnell said.
"They've done incredible stuff already."
"With this formalized agreement,"
Darnell said, "they'll be able to do even
more."

Charity holiday show draws laughs


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org
Christmas shows don't usually in-
clude a rap by Santa.
But Wednesday night's "Toys for
Laughs: A Crunk Christmas Comedy,"
which benefited the Marine Toys for
Tots Foundation, was different from
most Christmas shows.
Improv comics Brian Jaeger, a UF


alumnus; Ross Asdourian, a UF tele-
communication senior; Jeff Quintana,
an improve teaching assistant; and
Brandon Wurns, a UF graduate student,
put on two performances.
The earlier "nice" version and the
later "naughty" version raised more
than $400 and collected more than 40
toys.
"We're not purposely going out of
our way to be naughty," Wurns said.
"We're just not censoring ourselves."


Jeff Quintana, Brandon Wurns and Ross Asdourian perform a game called
"185" during their comedy show Wednesday.


But the two shows differed in their
finales.
At the end of the "nice" show, the
four played a game called "Eggnog
Slaps," in which players were punished
for saying certain words by taking shots
of eggnog or getting slapped.
The "naughty" show ended with the
messier "Eggnog Torture," in which one
player kept his head submerged in a
bucket of eggnog at all times.
Three gallons of eggnog were pur-
chased for the shows, Wurns said.
"It's a lot of fun and it's for a
good cause."
Brandon Wurns
UF graduate student

Asdourian said the four had never
performed by themselves but had
worked together in shows benefiting
cancer patients and victims of Hurricane
Katrina.
UF graduate student Nichole Fuller
brought a jumbling tower game to the
show.
"I think it's awesome," she said.
"I've known some families where the
kids don't really get anything, and it's
nice when they do. It's nice that this
group is supporting that."
Wurns said the cost of renting out
the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre for
the night came out of pocket.
"It's a lot of fun and it's for a good
cause," he said. "It benefits everyone."

AROUND UF

On-campus debate focuses on immigration issues


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

In an event free of protest and
interruption, an author and a
Hispanic leader debated immigra-
tion Wednesday night at UF.
Juan Andrade, president of
the U.S. Hispanic Leadership
Institute, debated the issue with
Jerome Corsi, co-author of the book
"Minutemen: The Battle to Secure
America's Borders" and a reporter
for WorldNetDaily.com.


Both were paid $7,250 for their
appearances.
About 250 UF students and
Gainesville residents attended the
debate in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom.
Security was tighter after protest-
ers climbed on stage during former
U.S. Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales' speech earlier this month.
O'Connell Center security staff and
rope barriers blocked access to the
stage, and signs and bags were not
allowed in the room.
Throughout the debate, both


speakers emphasized that they
were not opponents and agreed on
several issues.
"We're coming here
because we have to."
Juan Andrade
U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute
president

Andrade said illegal immigrants
were coming to the United States
out of necessity, not desire.
"We're coming here because we


have to," he said. "There's simply
nowhere else to go."
The solution is not persecution,
he said. Instead, he argued the
United States should spend money
to improve infrastructure and social
conditions in Latin America.
Meanwhile, Corsi said he wel-
comed immigrants as long as there
was a system of control.
But the current system poses
grave security concerns and allows
access for terrorists, he said.
He also argued that the inad-
equate immigration enforcement


in the United States is a money-
making plan by North American
governments and multinational
corporations.
The governments of Canada,
Mexico and the United States,
backed by corporations, will soon
merge in a union that will eliminate
American sovereignty, he argued.
"My argument is that immigra-
tion is really not the issue it appears
to be," Corsi said. "The only winners
here are the multinational corpora-
tions. We the people are the losers of
our sovereignty."


Speaker will recount


time spent in slavery


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

A former Sri Lankan slave will
speak about human trafficking today.
Beatrice Fernando will speak at 7
p.m. at Hillel at UF. Human Rights
Awareness On Campus and nine
other student groups co-sponsored her
speech, for which she will earn $2,000.
Fernando, originally from Sri
Lanka, moved to Lebanon in 1980 to
get a job to support her son, who was
still living in Sri Lanka, she said.
When she arrived in Lebanon, she
was forced to surrender her passport
and was unable to leave.
She was forced to work without
pay for more than 18 hours a day and
was beaten regularly, she said.
"When people think of slavery, they
think of what existed over a thousand
years ago," Femando said. "They
don't think it can exist today."
Femando was forced to stay in
Lebanon eight months before she fi-
nally escaped by jumping off a balcony
on the fourth floor, which paralyzed
her, she said.


"After you become a victim, you
can't erase that," she said. "You have
to live with that stigma forever."
She made it back to Sri Lanka and
was eventually able to walk and func-
tion normally.
She later decided to come to
America.
She now lives in Merrimac, Mass.,
and works at the Nivasa Foundation,
which raises aware-
Multicultural ness of human traf-
Affairs picking.
Fernando said
human trafficking is the second largest
trade crime in the world.
"It's like a virus," she said. "It
changes colors and names and forms."
She is coming so UF students will
understand that human trafficking
is a real issue that still affects people
around the world, said Jessica Ponn,
president of Human Rights Awareness
On Campus.
"I have to tell people that it is going
on now," Fernando said. "The more
people that are aware it's going on, the
more people who can fight against it.
We have to get together to fight this."

Free speech is a funny thing, isn't it? Who decided it was
OK to yell at someone for wearing fur, but illegal to yell
"Fire!" in a crowded room?
Debate about First Amendment rights is a hot topic right
now, to be sure, with the U.S. Supreme Court deciding over the
summer that a high school student's banner proclaiming "Bong
Hits 4 Jesus" is not protected by free speech. More recently,
Amazon.com refused to turn over customers' purchasing
records to the FBI, saying that would violate customers' First
Amendment right to privacy, and on Tuesday, the FBI canceled
its investigation into the issue.
And we haven't missed out on our fair share here on cam-
pus. First, we had the Taser incident, which many students
mistakenly called a free-speech issue and even staged pro-
tests in the name of. And then we had the right-to-free-but-
silent-speech protest at former U.S. Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales' speech.
But probably the free-speech issue garnering the most at-
tention recently is the ads posted by members of UF College
Republicans and UF Law School Republicans promoting a
documentary, "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the
West." The signs, if you are somehow not aware, read, "Radical
Islam Wants You Dead."
Not surprisingly, Muslim students took offense to this.
Students who aren't Muslim took offense to this. Nevertheless,
the fliers were protected by the First Amendment.
But that didn't stop students from getting mad. Blog posts
were written. E-mails were sent. Vitriol flowed from both sides.
Muslim students didn't appreciate the implication that their re-
ligion is a violent one because it isn't. The students responsi-
ble for the fliers didn't believe they had done anything wrong. It
escalated to the point that UF administrators had to step in, and
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs, e-mailed
the entire student body an official response Monday.
In the e-mail, Telles-Irvin took neither group's side. She
stated that what the student groups wrote on the ads was pro-
tected by the First Amendment, but encouraged them to extend
an apology to Muslim students.
We enjoy a privilege in this country with our right to free-
dom of speech, but with privilege comes responsibility. The
groups that advertised with an offensive statement abused their
privilege, and now they refuse to do the responsible thing. A
letter to the editor printed in Wednesday's Alligator showed the
groups' blatant refusal to apologize.
That's unfortunate.
Yes, it is perfectly protected by the Constitution, but that.
doesn't make saying "Radical Islam Wants You Dead" OK.
Maybe some people are sick of political correctness. Maybe
some people don't care if what they say and do hurts others.
But some things hit below the belt, and what these fliers read
was one of them.
At this point, the groups aren't very likely to change their
minds about apologizing. We can only hope everyone will learn
from this experience and think twice before plastering campus
with fliers. Remember what your mama taught you? Think be-
fore you speak (or write, in this case).
To be effective, advertisements don't have to be offensive.
They don't have to be disrespectful especially to someone
else's religion, which is always a sensitive subject. Now, instead
of the focus being on the documentary, all the attention is on the
controversy surrounding five little words.

Celeb news no substitute for real stuff


hame on the news industry. You've been very naugh-
ty, and I'm sending you to your room without any
new celebrity drunken-driving stories, outrageously
priced politician haircut stories or developments on the
latest celebrity divorces.
I'd like to thank Lyndsey Lewis for pointing out a
seemingly unnoticed problem. I wholeheartedly agree
with the Alligator editor's Wednesday editorial notebook
regarding the lax focus on important issues in the news.
But what's more disturbing to me is that people read this
unfocused crap.
People not only read it they make it the most popu-
lar news. At one point, the most-viewed news pieces on
CNN.com on Wednesday were a video of a boy sleeping
with a 20-foot python and American Idol winner Jordin
Sparks' continuing wholesomeness. Note to that boy: A
snake is not to be confused with a teddy bear. Note to
Sparks: Whatever helps you sleep at night.
And a note to CNN.com readers: Try concentrating on
news stories that have an actual effect on you. That means
you skip over the entertainment section. Thanks.
Many people live in a magical, important-news-free
bubble. Names like "Michael Mukasey," "John Roberts"
and "Bill Nelson" elicit blank looks and cocker spaniel-
like head tilts.
Take my former roommate. She could tell me the plot
of every episode of "Grey's Anatomy," but she couldn't
name three Republican candidates in the 2008 presidential
race. But she saw Barack Obama on "The Oprah Winfrey
Show," so she named him in an attempt to compensate.
This is the type of selective (or forced) ignorance we're
dealing with.
I remember speaking with someone who thought only
journalism majors should read the news. How did she
come up with that logic? Brilliant! Next time I go out to eat
and stiff my waiter I'll just say, "How was I supposed to
calculate that tip? I'm no math major!"
The views expressed here are not

Today's question: Should the stu-
dent groups apologize for the "Radi-
cal Islam Wants You Dead" signs?


..: .-. One of my past journalism
.. instructors emphasized the true
*- nature of this profession, which re-
S flects the audience's interests. Her
words, "If it bleeds, it leads," led to
my rude awakening. I recognized
Stephanie the tenets of any newsworthy
Rosenberg story, but the statement still hit me
letters@alligator.org like a wrecking ball.
Some go as far as claiming jour-
nalism is a dying profession. Many
complain it's corrupt, biased and that no one cares.
I don't agree, but I see people don't care. They want
celebrity blood. They want celebrity divorce court. They
want to see the inebriated beautiful people caught with
their keys in the ignitions.
For some odd reason, they care what politicians look
like in bathing suits, as if they expect them to be former
Abercrombie & Fitch models.
Even when we read about blood, massacres and devas-
tation, we're more affected by publicity stunts on YouTube
than the actual tragedies.
We'd rather be entertained than informed. It's evident
at all levels of society and across the board of the entertain-
ment industry because the entertainment industry and the
news industry are now one and the same. People just sit
and wait for the story with the greatest gossip potential, as
the notable stories get pushed to the back burner.
Despite my doubts, I'll push on because I have high
hopes high hopes that in the time it took you to read
this, if you're uninformed, you will have looked up who
Michael Mukasey, John Roberts and Bill Nelson are. Or
you could give me. a summary on the latest episode of
"A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila." It's just as important,
right?

Only radicals should take offense to ads
As a person who values the right to live, I
find the UF administration's position on the
controversy surrounding how the "Obsession"
screening was advertised very disturbing.
One goal of "Obsession" is to promote
awareness of the distinction between radical
and non-radical Muslims, as emphasized in
the film. Muslims should thank the students"
who brought "Obsession" to campus for edu-
cating us about this distinction.
The key word here is radical. Muslims have
no reason to be offended by the (completely
accurate) facts given about radical Islam if
they do not consider themselves radical.
Those who claim to be offended by a dis-
cussion on radical Islam are blurring the lines
between radical and non-radical Muslims.
I encourage non-radical Muslims to defend
their religion from the radicals who seek to
hijack their religion. I would gladly attend any
program they put on to make this distinction.
Venturing through Turlington Plaza on
Monday, I was greeted with a preacher pro-
viding far-too-graphic details of conception. If
this preacher could create such disturbing im-
ages of one of nature's most beautiful aspects,
I'd love to hear him describe in vivid detail
what happens to the human body when it is
within 10 feet of an exploding bomb.

UF needs cheaper or free Gatorade
I am responding to Wednesday's article
celebrating the life of Dr. Robert Cade, one of
four UF researchers responsible for inventing
Gatorade. I was quite surprised to learn that
since 1970, UF has drawn more than $150
million in royalties from Gatorade sales.
After reading this, it made me think back
to a September Alligator article about the
increased soda costs on campus, part of the
objective being to encourage people to make
a healthier choice.
I agree it is frustrating that a dollar no lon-
ger get you a carbonated beverage from cam-
pus vending machines. It made me buy fewer
sodas, though. Now I usually opt for whatever
juice or tea I can get without loose change.
But these beverages aren't more healthful.
Most have nearly the same amount of sugar
as soda. Gatorade, on the other hand, has less
than half the sugar per serving than any non-
diet drink in these machines, yet costs more.
I realize Gatorade has become more ex-
pensive everywhere, not just on campus. But
with all the money UF gets from royalties
alone, shouldn't Gators be able to purchase
this healthier alternative at a more reasonable
price? Heck, with that much money, Gatorade
Fierce Melon should be flowing from our wa-

Best films of the year (or at least the first 11 months)


Editor's note: While Danny and
I disagree somewhat on the year's
best movies, remember he's the ex-
pert. Here are his picks.

"Knocked Up"
Judd Apatow and his talented
cast (many of whom some from his
canceled shows "Freaks and Geeks"
and "Undeclared") prove that a
comedy can be consistently funny
and well made (unlike "Wedding
Crashers").

"Once"
"Once" is a stunning and beauti-
ful musical that has none of the cho-
reographed dance sequences and
general visual overkill that weighs
down most of its genre. Instead,
writer/director John Carney and
musicians/stars Glen Hansard and
Market Irglova tear down the
musical to its most important parts:
music and emotion.

"The Bourne Ultimatum"

treats his sec-
ond "Bourne" outing with intensity
and political sensibility. There's a
reason why even the "007" films
saw the need to imitate "Bourne,"
and "Ultimatum" epitomizes it.

- "The King of Kong: A Fistful of
Quarters"
A story about the culture of
competitive video gaming and the
rivalry between the reigning cham-
pion of Donkey Kong and a subur-
ban upstart sounds like fodder for a
bad comedy, but this documentary
never treats its subjects like a circus
sideshow. It's like a real-life version
of "The Office," complete with the
cringe-worthy but hilarious state-


ments by rampant sociopaths.
"Hot Fuzz"
The wonderful thing about "Hot
Fuzz," like Edgar Wright's previous
film, "Shaun of the Dead," is that it
is not a parody. "Hot Fuzz" is really
an action movie in addition to being
a comedy, and it succeeds at both.

"The Darjeeling Limited"
Wes Anderson has become a
more focused filmmaker since
the mixed reception of "The Life
Aquatic," giving us a story without
the excessively stylized quirk that
turned off viewers to his last film.
Here, the style comes from the film's
setting, which appears to be a coun-
try tailored to Anderson's aesthetic.

"Eastern Promises"
David Cronenberg directed
yet another minimalist crime
drama/character study with Viggo
Mortensen, and lightning struck a
second time. "Eastern Promises" is
a compelling look into the world of
the Russian mafia and the violence

"Ratatouille"/"Beowulf" (tie)
While they have only one thing
in common (I'll let you guess),
both movies signal where the
animation genre should be going.
"Ratatouille" takes the tired talking


animal movie and makes it fresh
with its high-concept plot (as op-
posed to the usual "Look! Talking

from a smart script that shows that

Grand Gift Guide!


Awesome ideas f
RYAN LEVICK I AVENUE WRITER
With video games more popular this holiday season
than ever before, do you know what to buy for the gamer
in your life?
There are so many choices about which game system to
buy and which games to play, it's becoming hard for the
non-gamer to know what to purchase. For the hardcore
gamer, an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 would be a perfect fit.
If gaming is a casual hobby, then the Wii is probably the
right selection. The possibility of handheld systems com-
plicates the situation even more.
The real way to know what system to buy is to know
what games the system plays. This guide should be some
help on some of the hottest games for this holiday season.

Sony PlayStation 3
"Uncharted: Drake's Fortune"
This third-person action shooter from Naughty Dog
(makers of "Crash Bandicoot" and "Jak" and "Daxter") is
a breath of fresh air for PS3 owners. A great story and awe-
some visuals will make any Tomb Raider fan say, "Laura
who?"
"Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction"
If you love platformers and for some strange reason
don't own a Wii, then this title is for you. The team at
Insomniac tries to perfect its proven Ratchet and Clank for-
mula and the result is not disappointing. This one is perfect
for the young PS3 owner.

Microsoft Xbox 360
"BioShock" (also for the PC)
There is no shortage of first-person shooters this holi-
day season (it seems as if every Xbox 360 owner already
has multiple copies of "Halo 3"), but "BioShock" seems to
differentiate itself from the rest of the pack. Although tech-
nically also for the PC, this RPG-style shooter stands out in
a crowded Xbox 360 lineup. A freaky story and a wonder-
ful art style make this title a must-own.


)r the gamer...
"Mass Effect" (also for the PC)
The team at BioWare has quite a reputation in the role-
playing game community. With titles like "Baldur's Gate,"
"Neverwinter Nights" and "Star Wars: Knights of the Old
Republic" under its belt, it's no surprise that the first game
for the current generation of consoles is a smashing suc-
cess. This epic experience will keep any role-playing-game
fan entertained through the new year.

Nintendo Wii
"Super Mario Galaxy"
All kids need to have an experience with Mario, and
adults can rediscover what a great game is like. Mario.is
back and, quite possibly, better than ever. This title claims
its seat as the best game for the Wii so far.
Virtual Console
Nintendo has quite .a history, and thanks to the Internet,
you can buy and play old Nintendo games from the con-
venience of your couch. "Super Mario 64," "The Legend of
Zelda," "Super Metroid" and "Sonic the Hedgehog" are a
few of the games along your trip down memory lane. At
an average of $7, these games make great stocking stuffers
for anyone.

Multi-Platform
"Call of Duty 4" (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
My roommate has dedicated quite some time to this
game. The multiplayer component will keep you gaming
into the wee hours of the morning. The only problem is
that the hardcore gamer probably already owns a copy.
"The Orange Box" (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
PC gamers are familiar with the "Half-Life" series and
have been enjoying the great story and intense first-person
shooting action since 1999. With the Orange Box console,
all gamers can rejoice in five games for the price of one.
"Half Life 2," "Half Life 2" episodes 1 and 2, "Portal," and
"Team Fortress 2" will give any first-person-shooter fan a
memorable gaming experience.

These are the things you should have thought were great


BETt ROMANIK I AVENUE WRITER


If you're wondering what to
get your music-savvy friends for
the holidays, consider buying
them these releases to add to their
record collections. Ha, just kidding
- who actually pays for music
anymore? Anyway, I couldn't
mention only 10, so here's my
baker's dozen of top picks for the
albums of 2007.


13. Arcade Fire "Neon Bible"
12. New Pornographers -
"Challengers"
11. Menomena "Friend and
Foe"
10. M.I.A. "Kala"
9. Animal Collective -
"Strawberry Jam"
8. Simian Mobile Disco -
"Attack Decay Sustain Release"
7. Aesop Rock "None Shall


Pass"
6. Andrew Bird "Armchair
Apocrypha"
5. Caribou "Andorra"
4. Okkervil River "The Stage
Names"
3. Spoon "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga"
2. Jens Lekman "Night Falls
Over Kortedala"
1. Radiohead "In Rainbows"

Somewhere amid the remakes,


sequels, prequels and book/
graphic novel/TV show adapta-
tions, 2007 managed to chum out
some decent films. Albeit, some of
the movies on this list are in one of
the above categories of rip-offs, but
without them, I don't think I could
even name 10 movies. Here's what
I think were the year's best.

10. "The Darjeeling Limited"
9. "3:10 to Yuma"


8. "Once"
7. "Sunshine"
6. "Eastern Promises"
5. "Superbad"
4. "Black Snake Moan"
3. "300"
2. "Transformers"
1. "Grindhouse"

*Note: "Sweeney Todd" hasn't
come out yet, but once it does, this
list will have to be revised.

These gifts can be for the naughty or nice


Every year it seems like there's more
pressure to buy my loved and some-
times not-so-loved ones awesome, cre-
ative, flawlessly wrapped gifts. Yet even
though Black Friday came and went, I have
not one giveable gift. -
* I doubt I'm alone. College students are
lazy, so I figured an Einstein Notes-style
guide to getting gifts for the characters in
* your life would be something we could all
invest in.
Behold the sex-centric gift guide cheat
sheet for the important people you need to
* consider this holiday season.
At the top of your list should be whom-
ever you're fooling around with.
Whether it's the person you're 'talking
to' or that someone you _ee atter hitting the
bars.. thev get you off. and that should al-
ways be celebrated. Try buying them a ring-
tone It's a small on estment but come last
call them weil be no confu_ion w hen "'6.


New Booty" starts blaring from their cell.
Bonus: A personalized ringtone also
makes screening easier.
Admit it: Your dormmate puts up with
a lot of baloney. Remember that time you
... exactly.
Invest in a good pair of earbuds for
them. Cramped living quarters ultimately
means i loss of privacy, and a good set
of noise reducers helps restore some of it.
If you're really disrespectful, consider a
blindfold, too.
These gifts can also work for whomever
you're living with now. After all, having
your own room only makes you louder,
doesn't it?
Bonus- Like everything else your dorm-
mate O'\TTis. you can borrow it. And as a sex
colun _ust. I can never over-recommend the
value ot a blindfold.
If \ou re like me, ladies, your best
friend rocks. Then why not help her really


rock out?
The OhMiBod vibrator is the perfect
way. Plug it into your iPod or any other
music-playing device, and it pulsates to
both the beat of the music and the intensity
of the volume. You can order it online, it's
delivered in nondescript packaging and it
comes in an oh-so-cute pink.
Bonus: Vibrators literally are the gift
that keeps on giving, and as such, they are
always warmly received.
Sex-centric gifts are -not just for girls.
Your guy friends could also use some help.
Stroke 29 is a masturbation cream that
heats up as you use it, but unlike most
household helpers, it doesn't get sticky.
Described as the best on the market, it's
cheap and easy. And what guy doesn't ap-
preciate getting something like that?
Finally, books are always great gifts.
There are a ton of great books out there de-
voted to help or ideas regarding sex.


Here are my big
three:
"She Comes
First" by Ian Kerner.
It's great for both
sexes and is short, engaging and informa-
tive.
Paul Joannides's "Guide to Getting It
On" is my Bible. It covers nearly every
realm of the sexual spectrum and is pretty
funny at times. (There's a game where you
match flaccid penises to hard ones, and if
that doesn't scream "fun holiday game," I
don't know what does.)
Finally, I'll say it: The Kama Sutra is over-
rated. It contains funky graphics of funkier
positions that are funkin' ridiculous to get
into. Instead, opt for the sleeker "Position of
the Day Playbook" by Nerve.com. Bonus:
It's fun to tell people that last night you did
the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
Happy holidays!

Fashion goes both ways

VANESSA DiMAGGIO I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


Androgyny has had its place in high
fashion for more than 30( years, but now it's
finally made its way to the mainstream.
The trend of the moment is unisex cloth-
ing, supported by stores popular with the
indie crowd such as American Apparel and
Urban Outfitters.
This doesn't just refer to men's clothing
that omen can get away with wearing or
vice versa. This is clothing specifically de-
signed to fit the broad range of men's and
women's sizes.
At American Apparel, for example, the
unisex sizes start at XXS and go up to 3XL.
These garments tend to fit a little looser than
women's sizes and a little tighter than men's
sizes, but that seems to be the point
as the two styles are
merged into one.
Girls can stop
resorting to stealing
their boyfriends'
T-shirts if they
want that
loose,
baggy fit.
Now they
can buy the
loose-fitting
style in a size
that's specifically
designed for their
dimensions.
This trend
has the possibil-
ity of becoming a
little too masculine
tholWh, so take a
cue from celebri-
ties like Mary-
Kate Olsen and
Nicole Richie,
who can often
be seen sporting
the oversized
style.
Pair an over-
sized T-shirt with


black leggings or skinny jeans, or wear a
unisex tank tucked into a high-waisted
pencil skirt. Of course, the ultimate way to
always bring a feminine edge to a masculine
look is to accessorize. Wear some bangle
bracelets or cinch the loose-fitting style with
a cute belt.
Women aren't the only ones taking a
fashion trip to the other side of the gene
pool, though men are joining in, too.
The most trendy of the unisex fashions
for men right now is the deep V-neck. From
T-shirts to cardigans, men are taking the
plunge.
What was once a style intended
to show off more of a woman's
curves is now becoming a way
for guys to show off their own
man cleavage their pecs,
that is.
While the jury is still
out on whether this style
is a little too "metro,"
it is being sported by
the likes of Jude Law
and Adam Brody, so it
can't be all bad.
For men who want
to sport the style but
not have the awkward
experience of someone
spotting you from behind
and thinking you're a girl,
try to balance out the tight-
fitting V-neck with more
masculine pieces, such as
boot-cut jeans instead of
slim jeans.
While the unisex
trend is fashionable for
the moment, the key is
to keep it balanced. As
long as you don't stray
too far from your own
gender style, you're
sure to be sporting a
stylish, sexy trend.

AVENUE STAFF WRITER
When you're home for the holi-
days and get to the point where you
can't possibly stand your relatives
any longer, turn to the entity that truly
shaped your childhood: TV.
These holiday-themed movies
will help you enjoy the season, but
unlike your younger siblings, they
can be turned off when you've had
enough. Who knows, maybe watch-
ing these favorites will put you in a
less Ebenezer-y spirit.

"A Christmas Story"
If TBS is any indicator, this movie's
a classic. (However, whether it should
actually be watched for 24 hours
straight is debatable.) Somehow it's
still funny to watch the unwrapping
of the "Italian" garter-clad leg lamp,
to feel intense embarrassment at the
sight of the pink footy pajamas, and to
chant along with everyone as they tell
. Ralphie he'll shoot his eye out.

"National Lampoon's Christmas
Vacation"
If horrible relatives are invading
your house, your holiday-crazed dad
is stringing 250,000 lights on your
roof and there's a squirrel in your
Christmas tree, watch this movie.
Juliette Lewis sympathizes with you.

"Home Alone" or "Home Alone
2: Lost in New York" (but never the
third one, which, as far as I'm con-
cerned, doesn't exist)
I still can't figure out why the
hands-on-the-sides-of-the-face-and-
screaming thing became so iconic;
but it launched Macaulay's career,
so who's to argue? Both these mov-
ies stand up to the test of time, but
they're especially great during this


season. I recommend the second, as it
contains Tim Curry.

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
or "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!"
That exclamation point makes a
difference: Whether you go for the
classic cartoon or the new version
with a creepy-looking Jim Carrey, this
sweet Dr. Seuss story gets you in the
holiday spirit. The Whos of Whoville
are cute, that "You're a Mean One,
Mr. Grinch" song has awesome lyrics,
and apparently the movie also teaches
some kind of lesson or something.

"The Nightmare Before
Christmas"
Tim Burton wisely created a movie
that could be marketed during two
major holidays, but "Christmas" is in
the title, so I think that wins out. This
movie looks like it might be for kids,
but it's scary and cool enough for us,
too. The songs are catchy, and it's
great to see what Burton can do with
animation.
(Another great Burton movie for
the holidays without being so blatant
about it is "Edward Scissorhands."
That scene where Edward carves the
ice sculpture serves as yet another re-
minder that Danny Elfman is god.)

"Scrooged"
Bill Murray, Carol Kane and that
woman who was Indiana Jones' love
interest in "Raiders of the Lost Ark"
star in the adaptation of Dickens' clas-
sic Christmas tale. It's modem (or at
least it was in 1988) and funny, and it
has Robert Goulet!

And for all our Hanukkah cel-
ebrators, may I recommend "8 Crazy -
Nights." Somehow, Adam Sandler is
less annoying when he's animated.

JU wins 13th straight

WOMEN'S, from page 20
who began to force bad passes. UF ended up with 11
assists to 28 turnovers, a total tied for the second-highest
of the season.
As far as kicking it out to the perimeter, UF shot 0 for
11 from behind the arc, going without a 3-point field goal
for the first time in 216 games.
UF also lost the rebounding battle for the first time
this season (33-30), and the Gators never led by more
than 3 points.
The Dolphins, on the other hand, were able to come
up with a big shot whenever they needed one.
This isn't Jacksonville's first upset of the season. The
Dolphins have already notched victories at Miami and
against Massachusetts on a neutral floor. It was, how-
ever, the first time Jacksonville defeated a Southeastern
Conference opponent.
With Wednesday night's outcome, the Dolphins ex-
tended a school-record 13-game winning streak.
'"Jacksonville wanted to win more than we did,"
Butler said.
"They were willing to do whatever it took to make
that happen. We showed spurts of that, but when things
got tough they simply outplayed us at crucial mo-
ments."


a tow lot, but the incident didn't seem to deter UF from its
goal of knocking off top-ranked LSU. Up 24-14 with 2:50 left
in the third quarter, the Gators' suddenly looked like legiti-
mate title contenders. They were moving down field when
Kestahn Moore fumbled (shocker) at the 50-yard line. The
frustration didn't stop there. UF allowed LSU five fourth-
down conversions overall and lost to the Tigers, 28-24.
3. AUBURN BUMMER: All the toilet paper in the state
of Alabama couldn't have dried the Gators' tears after this
heartbreaker. Urban Meyer lost his first home game on a
last-minute field goal, which snapped UF's 18-game win-
ning streak in The Swamp. Even crazier, Wes Byrum had to
make the 43-yarder twice after Meyer tried to ice him with
a last-second timeout.


2. SMOOCH ON THE SIDELINE: The Gators trounced
Tennessee in their conference opener 59-20, but that became
secondary news after the television camera caught Joiner
and his roommate, Tebow, in a post-touchdown moment
of intimacy.
The lightening-quick peck on the cheek became an
instant YouTube classic, and although the exchange hap-
pened nearly two months ago, comments are still being
posted. Sounds like some people need to get off their com-
puters, go out and get some action of their own.
1. BULLDOG BASH: The world's largest outdoor cock-
tail party didn't compare to the fiesta the Bulldogs threw
in the end zone after Knowshon Moreno scored Georgia's
first touchdown. After the entire Georgia squad spilled out
onto the field in mid-game celebration, the refs took a good
10 seconds to process the scene before they threw flags. The
Gators would be upstaged throughout, falling 42-30. "

UF upset by


Jacksonville
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

JACKSONVILLE UF forward Marshae Dotson
knew it was a mistake the moment she heard the
whistle.
The junior had just picked up her fourth foul hedg-
ing out on a screen far away from the basket. She was
forced to watch the next 3:40 from the bench while -'
Jacksonville went on an 8-0 second-half run. The
Dolphins took a lead they would not relinquish as UF
fell 75-64 Wednesday night.
In a game that featured 22 lead changes, UF coach
Amanda Butler said Jacksonville
just wanted it more.
"I don't think Marshae coming
off the floor had anything to do
Women's with the way we closed out the ball-
Basketball game," Butler said. "The way we
dosed out the game had everything
to do with Jacksonville and how
passionate they were with beating us."
Dotson scored 12 of her 18 points in the first half,
including the team's first 4 points, and entered half-
time with only one foul.
She said the plan going into the game was to Z.. .
pound it into the paint but also look for shooters on A
the perimeter. P
UF's high-post player tried to feed the ball into the ,
low post, but Jacksonville did everything it could to
thwart the effort by fronting the Gators all night. Jeremiah Stanley. Alligalor

Gators open NCAA Tournament at home


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

A 25-win season capped off by a 17th-
consecutive Southeastern Conference
title was practically a formality.
Now, the UF volleyball team's true
season begins.
After Oklahoma and Florida A&M
open up the Gainesville Sub-Regional
round of the 2007 NCAA Tournament,
the Gators will face College of Charleston
in their first-round match this evening.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:30
but could begin later if the early match
goes long.
The No. 10 Gators (27-2, 19-1 SEC),
will also host a regional round of the
NCAA Tournament.
"We feel very fortunate," UF coach
Mary Wise said. "Last year, only two of
the four regional host teams got to play

were fully expecting to go on the road."
UF had been preparing to leave
Gainesville as early as Tuesday depend-
ing on where they were assigned these
preliminary matches.
"It's kind of sad because it's our
last go-around."
Kisya Killingsworth
UF middle blocker

"The advantage of playing at home, I
don't think you can even quantify," Wise
said.
She also speculated that if FAMU and
Charleston were not within driving dis-
tance of Gainesville, the Gators would
likely be playing on the road.
For UF's seniors, their final national
tournament brings mixed feelings.


U 1969: UF wide receiver Carlos
Alvarez records a school-record 15
receptions in the Gators' 35-16 victory

"It's kind of sad because it's our last
go-around, but at the same time it's a
big/Let's go get 'em' kind of thing,"
Kisya Killingsworth said.
UF will be without leading attacker
Marcie Hampton, who ruptured her
Achilles tendon in Saturday's match
against Long Beach State.
Senior setter Angie McGinnis said that
in order to play well without Hampton,
the Gators are likely to switch to a rota-
tion involving three middle blockers on
the floor at the same time, including two
in the front row.
"It's going to be a little bit of a quick-
er offense than we have been running all
year," McGinnis said. "We practiced it a
little bit in the beginning of the season
but never really went with it."
McGinnis said she is eager to start the

moments of this year. Here are the top
seven of '07.
7. CALL ME: Tim Tebow may be
good at a lot of things, but trash talk?
Not so much.
He playfully taunted LSU's stu-
dent section by pretending to dial a
phone after his first touchdown pass.
The gesture made sense when Tebow
later revealed he had received hun-
dreds of threatening calls and mes-
sages to his cell phone from Tigers
fans in the week leading up to the
game.
6. SEEING DOUBLE: In early
November, UF was desperate for
someone to fill in on the depleted de-
fensive line, so the logical choice was
obviously, uh, the backup center? True
freshman Mike Pouncey swapped
sides, and five days later he started
at nose tackle against Vanderbilt de-
spite having almost no experience at
the position. I'm just looking forward
to the day when Mike takes on twin
brother and right guard Maurkice in
UF's Circle of Life drill.
5. CALDWELL'S CHUCK: Andre
Caldwell has accomplished a lot dur-
ing his time at UF. He battled through
a devastating injury, won a national
championship and broke a 36-year-
old record to become the school's all-
time receptions leader. But he secured
his legacy in his last game in The
Swamp when he caught a 31-yard
touchdown pass and promptly threw
the ball into the stands.
4. BLEAUX IT: It seems that one
WTF moment for Week 6 wasn't
enough for the Gators. Tony Joiner
was arrested in the days prior to the
LSU game for allegedly breaking into

* ~ VOLUME 101 ISSUE 67 the independent florida No offay assoated,, w ha, U ers ofFlorda Pubished by Campus Communications, Inc. o Gainesvile, Florida We Inform. You Decide. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 UF ADMINISTRATION Trustees to talk fees By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Budget cuts and extra fees will be the leading issues discussed today and Friday by UF's highest governing body, the Board of Trustees. UF's Cost Reduction and Efficiency Task Force will update a trustee committee on the university's efforts to trim $34 million from its budget. Earlier this year, UF hired the Huron Consulting Group to help the task force cut costs and bring in more revenue. In October, the task force suggested a $10 transcript fee. UF will begin charging the fee February 2008. Student Body President Ryan Moseley, who is also a UF trustee, said he's OK with the transcript fee but hopes the amount will be negotiable. Another trustee panel, the Finance and Facilities Committee, willbe asked to approve UF's 2007-2008 operating budget, which totals nearly $3 billion. The budget includes this spring's 5 percent tuition increase, which will bring more than $2,000 during the spring. The Educational Policy and Strategy Committee will discuss a potential $2-percredit-hour fee that UF will charge in spring for online classes. The fee would cover the cost of using the e-Learning system and would not be included in tuition or covered by Bright Futures. Colleges and departments will also be allowed to charge a Distance Learning fee to cover costs of providing courses away from UF's campus. Moseley said he thinks some money from a newly approved 5 percent technology fee could be used to cover Distance Leaming courses. The Florida Legislature and Gov. Charlie Crist approved the fee in October. UF will begin charging it in fall 2009, and it is set to amass about $4 million each year. "There was a decision to go online, and at that point, students didn't know there would be a fee." Ryan Moseley UF Student Body president "There was a decision to go online, and'at that point, students didn't know there would be a fee," Moseley said. "They're retroactively trying to charge it." Student Government would lobby in spring to add more student input into how the technology fee is used, he added. In a letter to Machen, Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs, recommended that the UF Activity & Service Fee increase by 42 cents per credit hour. That fee funds student organizations, the Reitz Union and Rec Sports. She wrote that the UF Student Health Fee should increase by 62 cents per credit hour, the Transportation Fee should increase by 62 cents per hour, and the Athletic Fee should stay the same. Second shooting suspect arrested at local motel E THE SUSPECT HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH A FELONY. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer A second suspect in a Sunday downtown shooting was arrested Wednesday morning. Okpara Kehinde Nelson, 22, was arrested around 6 a.m. at the Scottish Inn on Southwest 13th Street, a release from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office stated. Nelson is believed to be the shooter in the death of 22-year-old Andrew David Arosemena, the release stated. Nelson has been charged with a first-degree felony, jail records stated. Alachua County Warrants Investigator Broderick Robinson made the arrest. Arosemena was the passenger of a maroon 2000 Lincoln Town Car and was waiting to get out of the Southwest Downtown Parking Garage Sunday morning when the incident occurred. Arosemena yelled "hurry up" to a blue car blocking traffic. Nelson and Antwan Maurice Maye, 25, had been speaking with the passengers of the blue car. Taking offense to the statement, they walked over and pulled out handguns, the report stated. While Maye and Local Arosemena were News arguing, Nelson reached into the car and shot Arosemena in the head, the police report stated. Nelson told Maye the shooting was an accident, the report stated. Arosemena went to Shands at UF with life-threatening injuries and died Sunday afternoon. Sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. Keith Faulk said the office contacted Nelson's relatives Tuesday to see if Nelson would turn himself in. Robinson met with a family member of Nelson's at the motel to try to negotiate a surrender, Faulk said. Nelson was found inside the room and arrested without incident, the release stated. He refused to talk, Faulk said. Investigators usually have fors of backup and don't serve warrants by themselves, he said. Robinson was alone because he didn't expect Nelson to be there, Faulk said. The small caliber handgun that may have been used in the shooting was found Tuesday in a lake in rural Gilchrist County. "Now we are preparing the case for the state attorney," Gainesville Police Department spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said. Nelson is being held at the Alachua County Jail without bond, the police report stated.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS UF Foundation plans on-campus burial site for fans By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Thanks to UF officials, die-hard Gators fans might never have to leave campus -and they mean never. The UF Foundation, UF's fundraising organization, will present a plan to UF's Board of Trustees to install a site on UF's campus for alumni and other Swamp enthusiasts to rest in orange-and-blue peace. -The memorial, known as a columbarium, will protect and honor ash-filled urns kept in individual niches. The plan will be presented this afternoon to the Finance and Facilities Committee of UF's Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body. The foundation does not need the board to approve the plans, said Paul Robell, UF vice president for development and alumni affairs. Foundation officials are only seeking feedback. Robell said the idea of a UF resting place has been bouncing around for about a year.

He said other universities with similar memorials, such as the University of Notre Dame and the Citadel, have had no problem with demand. Construction on UF's columbarium will not start until the foundation has sold a significant amount of niches, he said. Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell speaks about the new narcotics unit at a news conference Wednesday. Narcotics unit established Four groups partnered up By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Local law enforcement officers an-; nounced the formation of a multi-agency narcotics unit Wednesday afternoon. The Alachua County Sheriff's Office, the Gainesville Police Department, the University Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement helped plan the partnership. GPD Chief Norman Botsford said narcotics is the most important unit, because illegal drugs make up a large portion of crime in Gainesville. Botsford had been working with Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell for months on reforming the narcotics unit. It had been nine years since GPD and the sheriff's office worked together on a narcotics level, Darnell said. In the past, egos and territorial issues have stood in the way of successful working relationships, she said. As a former GPD captain, Darnell said she remembers the tension between GPD and the sheriff's office. Botsford said he is working with Darnell to form more multi-agency operations. "Neither one of us has any territorial -problems sharing credit Local with the others," he said. NewS Darnell said more cooperative programs will include traffic enforcement and domestic violence. As part of the ceremony, Darnell swore in city and university officers as deputy sheriffs. She said there has been no reluctance from staff toward the partnership. "We trust the people who are assigned to the unit," Darnell said. "They've done incredible stuff already." "With this formalized agreement," Darnell said, "they'll be able to do even more. 1 FUNNY -OFFENSIVE -SEXUAL -DRUGS I -jSofa King Political T-5hirts.Com, Fa. ure e Shippin on 20+ Customs avail. inqire a j consctteking@stfatisgpoicat-sirs.cm: ~ ~~ afu 7 d gUS Who drinak The contents of this ad were developed under a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 Charity holiday show draws laughs By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgalIagher@alligator.org Christmas shows don't usually include a rap by Santa. But Wednesday night's "Toys for Laughs: A Crunk Christmas Comedy," which benefited the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, was different from most Christmas shows. Improv comics Brian Jaeger, a UF alumnus; Ross Asdourian, a UF telecommunication senior; Jeff Quintana, an improv teaching assistant; and Brandon Wurns, a UF graduate student, put on two performances. The earlier "nice" version and the later "naughty"' version raised more than $400 and collected more than 40 toys. "We're not purposely going out of our way to be naughty," Wurns said. "We're just not censoring ourselves." aoe Jeff Quintana, Brandon Wurns and Ross Asdourian perform a game called "185" during their comedy show Wednesday. But the two shows differed in their finales. At the end of the "nice" show, the four played a game called "Eggnog *Slaps," in which players were punished for saying certain words by taking shots of eggnog or getting slapped. The "naughty" show ended with the messier "Eggnog Torture," in which one player kept his head submerged in a bucket of eggnog at all times. Three gallons of eggnog were purchased for the shows, Wurns said. "It's a lot of fun and it's for a good cause." Brandon Wurns UF graduate student Asdourian said the four had never performed by themselves but had worked together in shows benefiting cancer patients and victims of Hurricane Katrina. UF graduate student Nichole Fuller brought a jumbling tower game to the show. "I think it's awesome," she said. "I've known some families where the kids don't really get anything, and it's nice when they do. It's nice that this group is supporting that." Wurns said the cost of renting out the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre for the night came out of pocket. "It's a lot of fun and it's for a good cause," he said. "It benefits everyone." 4s*t. > -I 0 2 0) 0 z (D 0 STOM PIW & A L L MHKEIL ME E 9 U MPIN AMe LUVE T gr j ~ RESPONSIBLY cab yerizon S STMPN F01 KI CKO0FF, CONCERT!

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND UF On-campus debate focuses on immigration issues By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alIigator.org In an event free of protest and interruption, an author and a Hispanic leader debated immingration Wednesday night at UF .Juan Andrade, president of the U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute, debated the issue with Jerome Corsi, co-author of the book "Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders" and a reporter for WorldNetDailycom. Both were paid $7,250 for their appearances. About 250 UF students and Gainesville residents attended the debate in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. Security was tighter after protesters climbed on stage during former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' speech earlier this month. O'Connell Center security staff and rope barriers blocked access to the -stage, and signs and bags were not allowed in the room. Throughout the debate, both speakers emphasized that they were not opponents and agreed on several issues. "We're coming here because we have to." Juan Andrade U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute president Andrade said illegal immigrants were coming to the United States out of necessity, not desire. "We're coming here because we have to," he said. "There's simply nowhere else to go." The solution is not persecution, he said. Instead, he argued the United States should spend money to improve infrastructure and social conditions in Latin America. Meanwhile, Corsi said he welcomed immigrants as long as there was a system of control. But the current system poses grave security concerns and allows access for terrorists, he said. He also argued that the inadequate immigration enforcement in the United States is a moneymaking plan by North American governments and multinational corporations. The governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States, backed by corporations, will soon merge in a union that will eliminate American sovereignty, he argued. "My argument is that immigration is really not the issue it appears to-be," Corsi said. "The only winners here are the multinational corporations. We the people are the losers of our sovereignty." Speaker will recount time spent in slavery By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer A former Sri Lankan slave will speak about human trafficking today. Beatrice Fernando will speak at 7 p.m. at Hillel at UF. Human Rights Awareness On Campus and nine other student groups co-sponsored her speech, for which she will eam $2,000. Fernando, originally from Sri Lanka, moved to Lebanon in 1980 to get a job to support her son, who was still living in Sri Lanka, she said. When she arrived in Lebanon, she was forced to surrender her passport and was unable to leave. She was forced to work without pay for more than 18 hours a day and was beaten regularly, she said. "When people think of slavery, they think of what existed over a thousand years ago," Fernando said. "They don't think it can exist today." Fernando was forced to stay in Lebanon eight months before she finally escaped by jumping off a balcony on the fourth floor, which paralyzed her, she said. "After you become a victim, you can't erase that," she said. "You have to live with that stigma forever." She made it back to Sri Lanka and was eventually able to walk and function normally. She later decided to come to America. She now lives in Merrimac, Mass., and works at the Nivasa Foundation, which raises awareMulticultural ness of human trafAffairs ficking. Fernando said human trafficking is the second largest trade crime in the world. "It's like a virus," she said. "It changes colors and names and forms." She is coming so UF students will understand that human trafficking is a real issue that still affects people around the world, said Jessica Ponn, president of Human Rights Awareness On Campus. "I have to tell people that it is going on now," Fernando said. "The more people that are aware it's going on, the more people who can fight against it. We have to get together to fight this." 9 -% 1. 4, 1 .0 0* -h -I 0 2 -) 0 2 2 -.

6, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 Editorial Ad Nauseum Groups should take responsibility for offending Free speech is a funny thing, isn't it? Who decided it was OK to yell at someone for wearing fur, but illegal to yell "Fire!" in a crowded room? Debate about First Amendment rights is a hot topic right now, to be sure, with the U.S. Supreme Court deciding over the summer that a high school student's banner proclaiming "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" is not protected by free speech. More recently, Amazon.com refused to turn over customers' purchasing records to the FBI, saying that would violate customers' First Amendment right to privacy, and on Tuesday, the FBI canceled its investigation into the issue. And we haven't missed out on our fair share here on campus. First, we had the Taser incident, which many students mistakenly called a free-speech issue and even staged protests in the name of. And then we had the right-to-free-butsilent-speech protest at former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales'speech. But probably the free-speech issue gamering the most attention recently is the ads posted by members of UF College Republicans and UF Law School Republicans promoting a documentary, "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West." The signs, if you are somehow not aware, read, "Radical Islam Wants You Dead." .Not surprisingly, Muslim students took offense to this. Students who aren't Muslim took offense to this. Nevertheless, the fliers were protected by the First Amendment. But that didn't stop students from getting mad. Blog posts were written. E-mails were sent. Vitriol flowed from both sides. Muslim students didn't appreciate the implication that their religion is a violent one -because it isn't. The students responsible for the fliers didn't believe they had done anything wrong. It escalated to the point that UF administrators had to step in, and Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs, e-mailed the entire student body an official response Monday In the e-mail, Telles-Irvin took neither group's side. She stated that what the student groups wrote on the ads was protected by the First Amendment, but encouraged them to extend an apology to Muslim students. We enjoy a privilege in this country with our right to freedom of speech, but with privilege comes responsibility. The groups that advertised with an offensive statement abused their privilege, and now they refuse to do the responsible thing. A letter to the editor printed in Wednesday's Alligator showed the groups' blatant refusal to apologize. That's unfortunate. Yes, it is perfectly protected by the Constitution, but that doesn't make saying "Radical Islam Wants You Dead" OK. Maybe some people are sick of political correctness. Maybe some people don't care if what they say and do hurts others. But some things hit below the belt, and what these fliers read was one of them. At this point, the groups aren't very likely to change their minds about apologizing. We can only hope everyone will learn from this experience and think twice before plastering campus with fliers. Remember what your mama taught you? Think before you speak (or write, in this case). To be effective, advertisements don't have to be offensive. They don't have to be disrespectful -especially to someone else's religion, which is always a sensitive subject. Now, instead of the focus being on the documentary, all the attention is on the controversy surrounding five little words.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content % 1 & Available from Commercial News Providers" Column Celeb news no substitute for real stuff hame on the news industry. You've been very naughty, and I'm sending you to your room without any new celebrity drunken-driving stories, outrageously priced politician haircut stories or developments on the latest celebrity divorces. I'd like to thank Lyndsey Lewis for pointing out a seemingly unnoticed problem. I wholeheartedly agree with the Alligator editor's Wednesday editorial notebook regarding the lax focus on important issues in the news. But what's more disturbing to me is that people read this unfocused crap. People not only read it -they make it the most popular news. At one point, the most-viewed news pieces on CNN.com on Wednesday were a video of a boy sleeping with a 20-foot python and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks' continuing wholesomeness. Note to that boy: A snake is not to be confused with a teddy bear. Note to Sparks: Whatever helps you sleep at night. And a note to CNN.com readers: Try concentrating on news stories that have an actual effect on you. That means you skip over the entertainment section. Thanks. Many people live in a magical, important-news-free bubble. Names like "Michael Mukasey," "John Roberts" and "Bill Nelson" elicit blank looks and cocker spaniellike head tilts. Take my former roommate. She could tell me the plot of every episode of "Grey's Anatomy," but she couldn't name three Republican candidates in the 2008 presidential race. But she saw Barack Obama on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," so she named him in an attempt to compensate. This is the type of selective (or forced) ignorance we're dealing with. I remember speaking with someone who thought only journalism majors should read the news. How did she come up with that logic? Brilliant! Next time I go out to eat and stiff my waiter I'll just say, "How was I supposed to calculate that tip? I'm no math major!" One of my past journalism instructors emphasized the true nature of this profession, which reflects the audience's interests. Her words, "If it bleeds, it leads," led to my rude awakening. I recognized Stephanie the tenets of any newsworthy Rosenberg story, but the statement still hit me letters@asllgator.org like a wrecking ball. Some go as far as claiming journalism is a dying profession. Many complain it's corrupt, biased and that no one cares. I don't agree, but I see people don't care. They want celebrity blood. They want celebrity divorce court. They want to see the inebriated beautiful people caught with their keys in the ignitions. For some odd reason, they care what politicians look like in bathing suits, as if they expect them to be former Abercrombie & Fitch models. Even when we read about blood, massacres and devastation,-we're more affected by publicity stunts on YouTube than the actual tragedies. We'd rather be entertained than informed. It's evident at all levels of society and across the board of the entertainment industry because the entertainment industry and the news industry are now one and the same. People just sit and wait for the story with the greatest gossip potential, as the notable stories get pushed to the back burner. Despite my doubts, I'll push on because I have high hopes -high hopes that in the time it took you to read this, if you're uninformed, you will have looked up who Michael Mukasey, John Roberts and Bill Nelson are. Or you could give me. a summary on the latest episode of "A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila." It's just as important, right? Stephanie Rosenberg is a junior majoring in journalism.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 I ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Only radicals should take offense to ads As a person who values the right to live, I find the UF administration's position on the controversy surrounding how the "Obsession" screening was advertised very disturbing. One goal of "Obsession" is to promote awareness of the distinction between radical and non-radical Muslims, as emphasized in the film. Muslims should thank the students who brought "Obsession" to campus for educating us about this distinction. The key word here is radical. Muslims have no reason to be offended by the (completely accurate) facts given about radical Islam if they do not consider themselves radical. Those who claim to be offended by a discussion on radical Islam are blurring the lines between radical and non-radical Muslims. I encourage non-radical Muslims to defend their religion from the radicals who seek to hijack their religion. I would gladly attend any program they put on to make this distinction. Venturing through Turlington Plaza on Monday, I was greeted with a preacher providing far-too-graphic details of conception. If this preacher could create such disturbing images of one of nature's most beautiful aspects, I'd love to hear him describe in vivid detail what happens to the human body when it is within 10 feet of an exploding bomb. Ashley Osterer 2LS Civil liberties still need protecting Dear UF College Republicans and UF Law School Republicans, thank you so much for writing a letter to the Alligator decrying the erosion of your right to free speech. It's nice to see you are so concerned about civil liberties. On that note, when do you plan to begin writing letters to your comrades in Congress and the White House asking them to repeal the USA Patriot Act so we may have the-rest of our civil liberties back?.Again, thanks so much for protecting my civil rights. Jay Jackson 3LS Students support Paul's drug stance 'If the Alligator's editorial board wants to know why Ron Paul is so popular among college students, it should research Ron Paul's stance on the war on drugs. That's it in a nutshell. Only a few other candidates, Republican or Democrat, are even pro-medical marijuana. -Scott Beck 2LS Ron Paul best bet for Republicans Here is the deal with Ron Paul: Ron Paul is a former flight surgeon and OB/GYNturned Republican congressman with some Libertarian leanings ranging from sensible (ending the occupation of Iraq and the war on drugs) to the downright asinine (abolishing the Federal Reserve System, returning to the gold standard). Libertarianism has always had a strong Internet presence. This, coupled with the fact that college students spend a lot of time on the Internet, makes it clear why Paul is so popular with college students. However, Paul holds a few curious positions that his libertarian supporters are generally either unaware of or unable to explain. He was the only person in Congress to vote against a resolution that would have prohibited the federal government from granting contracts to companies profiting off of the mass slaughter in the Darfur region. Why a Libertarian would vote against a non-interventionist, Libertarian policy is puzzling. He also defines life as beginning at conception, which goes beyond the claims of most anti-abortion Libertarians who claim abortion should be an issue for states to decide. He also voted for that silly immigrant fence bill that would stretch from sea to shining sea. Despite all this, Paul is probably the best the Republicans have to offer. He's one of the few candidates who doesn't constantly emit "I'll say anything to get elected" sound bites -and liberty dollars are prettier than U.S. currency anyway. Graham Picklesimer 4LS UF needs cheaper -or free -Gatorade I am responding to Wednesday's article celebrating the life of Dr. Robert Cade, one of four UF researchers responsible for inventing Gatorade. I was quite surprised to learn that since 1970, UF has drawn more than $150 million in royalties from Gatorade sales. After reading this, it made me think back to a September Alligator article about the increased soda costs on campus, part of the objective being to encourage people to make a healthier choice. I agree it is frustrating that a dollar no longer get you a carbonated beverage from campus vending machines. It made me buy fewer sodas, though. Now I usually opt for whatever juice or tea I can get without loose change. But these beverages aren't more healthful. Most have nearly the same amount of sugar as soda. Gatorade, on the other hand, has less than half the sugar per serving than any nondiet drink in these machines, yet costs more. I realize Gatorade has become more expensive everywhere, not just on campus. But with all the money UF gets from royalties alone, shouldn't Gators be able to purchase this healthier alternative at a more reasonable price? Heck, with that much money, Gatorade Fierce Melon should be flowing from our water fountains. Mark Mullersman 3EG Hey, Ad and Business Majors Dive into a new opportunity!

movies Best films of the year (or at least the first 11 months) Editor's note: While Danny and I disagree somewhat on the year's best movies, remember he's the expert. Here are his.picks. "Knocked Up" Judd Apatow and his talented cast (many of whom Some from his canceled shows "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared") prove that a comedy can be consistently funny and well made (unlike "Wedding Crashers"). "Once" "Once" is a stunning and beautiful musical that has none of the choreographed dance sequences and general visual overkill that weighs down most of its genre. Instead, writer/director John Carney and musicians/stars Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova tear down the musical to its most important parts: music and emotion.

Doctor Paul Greengrass treats his second "Bourne" outing with intensity and political sensibility. There's a reason why even the "007" films saw the need to imitate "Bourne," and "Ultimatum" epitomizes it. -"The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" A story about the culture of competitive video gaming and the rivalry-between the reigning champion of Donkey Kong and a suburban upstart sounds like fodder for a bad comedy, but this documentary never treats its subjects like a circus sideshow. It's like a real-life version of "The Office," complete with the cringe-worthy but hilarious statements by rampant sociopaths. "Hot Fuzz" The wonderful thing about "Hot Fuzz," like Edgar Wright's previous film, "Shaun of the Dead," is that it is not a parody. "Hot Fuzz" is really an action movie in addition to being a comedy, and it succeeds at both. "The Darjeeling Limited" Wes Anderson has become a more focused filmmaker since the mixed reception of "The Life Aquatic," giving us a story without the excessively stylized quirk that turned off viewers to his last film. Here, the style comes from the film's setting, which appears to be a country tailored to Anderson's aesthetic. "Eastem Promises" David Cronenberg directed yet another minimalist crime drama/character study with Viggo Mortensen, and lightning struck a second time.

"Ratatouille"/"Beowulf" (tie) While they have only one thing in common (I'll let you guess), both movies signal where the animation genre should be going. "Ratatouille" takes the tired talking animal movie and makes it fresh with its high-concept plot (as opposed to the usual "Look! Talking fish!"). Similarly, "Beowulf" benefits from a smart script that shows that a computer-graphic action movie need not be soulless. Courtesy/Paramount Pictures "Beowulf" was released in early November.

Grand Gift Guide. Awesome ideas fc RYAN LEVICK 0 AVENUE WRITER With video games more popular this holiday season than ever before, do you know what to buy for the gamer in your life? There are so many choices about which game system to buy and which games to play, it's becoming hard for the non-gamer to know what to purchase. For the hardcore gamer, an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 would be a perfect fit. If gaming is a casual hobby, then the Wii is probably the right selection. The possibility of handheld systems complicates the situation even more. The real way to know what system to buy is to know what games the system plays. This guide should be some help on some of the hottest games for this holiday season. Sony PlayStation 3 "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" This third-person action shooter from Naughty Dog (makers of "Crash Bandicoot" and "Jak" and "Daxter") is a breath of fresh air for PS3 owners. A great story and awesome visuals will make any Tomb Raider fan say, "Laura who?" "Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction" If you love platformers and for some strange reason don't own a Wii, then this title is for you. The team at Insomniac tries to perfect its proven Ratchet and Clank formula and the result is not disappointing. This one is perfect for the young PS3 owner. Microsoft Xbox 360 e "BioShock" (also for the PC) There is no shortage of first-person shooters this hohday season (it seems as if every Xbox 360 owner already has multiple copies of "Halo 3"), but "BioShock" seems to differentiate itself from the rest of the pack. Although technically also for the PC, this RPG-style shooter stands out in a crowded Xbox 360 lineup. A freaky story and a wonderful art style make this title a must-own. r the gamer. 9 "Mass Effect" (also for the PC) The team at BioWare has quite a reputation in the roleplaying game community. With titles like "Baldur's Gate," "Neverwinter Nights" and "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" under its belt, it's no surprise that the first game for the current generation of consoles is a smashing success. This epic experience will keep any role-playing-game fan entertained through the new year. Nintendo Wil "Super Mario Galaxy" All kids need to have an experience with Mario, and adults can rediscover what a great game is like. Mario.is back and, quite possibly, better than ever. This title claims its seat as the best game for the Wii so far. e Virtual Console Nintendo has quite a history, and thanks to the Internet, you can buy and play old Nintendo games from the convenience of your couch. "Super Mario 64," "The Legend of Zelda," "Super Metroid" and "Sonic the Hedgehog" are a few of the games along your trip down memory lane. At an average of $7, these games make great stocking stuffers; for anyone. Multi-Platform "Call of Duty 4" (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) My roommate has dedicated quite some time to this game. The multiplayer component will keep you gaming into the wee hours of the morning. The only problem is that the hardcore gamer probably already owns a copy. a "The Orange Box" (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) PC gamers are familiar with the "Half-Life" series and have been enjoying the great story and intense first-person shooting action since 1999. With the Orange Box console, all gamers can rejoice in five games for the price of one. "Half Life 2," "Half Life 2" episodes 1 and 2, "Portal," and "Team Fortress 2" will give any first-person-shooter fan a memorable gaming experience. .and music snob ADRIAN RUHI 0 AVENUE WRITER We all have one to shop for -the friend who happens to be an Uber-finicky music fan. Here are five holiday gift ideas for the snob who wants a more in-depth present than the hottest Soulja Boy 'single on iTunes: TOM PETTY -AND THE HEARTBREAKERS -"RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM": Another Best Buy exclusive, this box set contains one CD and three DVDs, which have more than five hours of video, including rare band footage, interviews and their 2006 Gainesville homecoming concert in its entirety.

Jens Lekman -"Night Falls Over Kortedala" 1. Radiohead -"In Rainbows" sequels, prequels and book/ graphic novel/TV show adaptations, 2007 managed to churn out some decent films.

0 These gifts can be for the naughty or nice Every year it seems like there's more pressure to buy my loved -and sometimes not-so-loved -ones awesome, creative, flawlessly wrapped gifts. Yet even though Black Friday came and went, I have not one giveable gift. I doubt I'm alone. College students are lazy, so I figured an Einstein Notes-style guide to getting gifts for the characters in your life would be something we could all invest in. Behold the sex-centric gift guide cheat sheet for the important people you need to consider this holiday season. At the top of your list should be whomeveryou're fooling around with. Whether it's the person you're "talking to" or that someone you see after hitting the bars, they get you off, and that should always be celebrated. Try buying them aringtone. It's a small investment, but come last call, there will be no confusion when "Ms. New Booty" starts blaring from their cell. Bonus: Apersonalized ringtone also makes screening easier. Admit it: Your dormmate puts up with a lot of baloney. Remember that time you .exactly. Invest in a good pair of earbuds for them. Cramped living quarters ultimately means i loss of privacy, and a good set of noise reducers helps restore some of it. If you're really disrespectful, consider a blindfold, too. These gifts can also work for whomever you're living with now. After all, having your own room only makes you louder, doesn't it? Bonus: Like everything else your dormmate owns, you can borrow it. And as a sex columnist, I can never over-recommend the value of a blindfold. If you're like me, ladies, your best friend rocks. Then why not help her really 0,12 oqe xgtu rock out? The OhMiBod vibrator is the perfect way. Plug it into your iPod or any other music-playing device, and it pulsates to both the beat of the music and the intensity of the volume. You can order it online, it's delivered in nondescript packaging and it comes in an oh-so-cute pink. Bonus: Vibrators literally are the gift that keeps on giving, and as such, they are always warmly received. Sex-centric gifts are not just for girls. Your guy friends could also use some help. Stroke 29 is a masturbation cream that heats up as you use it, but unlike most household helpers, it doesn't get sticky. Described as the best on the market, it's cheap and easy And what guy doesn't appreciate getting something like that? Finally, books are always great gifts. There are a ton of great books out there devoted to help or ideas regarding sex. Here are my big M three: I "She Comes wdl First" by Ian Kemer. It's great for both sexes and is short, engaging and informative. Paul Joannides's "Guide to Getting It On" is my Bible. It covers nearly every realm of the sexual spectrum and is pretty funny at times. (There's a game where you match flaccid penises to hard ones, and if that doesn't scream "fun holiday game," I don't know what does.) Finally, I'll sayit: The Kama Sutra is overrated. It contains funky graphics of funkier positions that are funkin' ridiculous to get into. Instead, opt for the sleeker "Position of the Day Playbook" by Nerve.com. Bonus: It's fun to tell people that last night you did the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." Happy holidays! Androgyny has had its place in high fashion for more than 3(r years, but now it's finally made its way to the mainstream. The trend of the moment is unisex clothing, supported by stores popular with the indie crowd such as American Apparel and Urban Outfitters. This doesn't just refer to men's clothing tha' women can get away with wearing or vice versa. This is clothing specifically designed to fit the broad range of men's and women's sizes. At American Apparel, for example, the unisex sizes start at XXS and go up to 3XL. These garments tend to fit a little looser than women's sizes and a little tighter than men's sizes, but that seems to be the point as the two styles are merged into one. Girls can stop resorting to stealing their boyfriends' T-shirts if they want that l o o s e baggy fit. Now they can buy the loose-fitting style in a size that's specifically designed for their dimensions. This trend has the possibility of becoming a little too masculine though, so take a cue from celebrities like MaryKate Olsen and Nicole Richie, who can often be seen sporting the oversized style. *ir an oversized T-shirt with black leggings or skinny jeans, or wear a unisex tank tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt. Of course, the ultimate way to always bring a feminine edge to a masculine look is to accessorize. Wear some bangle bracelets or cinch the loose-fitting style with a cute belt. Women aren't the only ones taking a fashion trip to the other side of the gene pool, though -men are joining in, too. The most trendy of the unisex fashions for men right now is the deep V-neck. From T-shirts to cardigans, men are taking the plunge. What was once a style intended to show off more of a woman' curves is now becoming a way for guys to show off their own man cleavage -their pecs, that is. While the jury is still out on whether this style is a little too "metro," it is being sported by the likes of Jude Law and Adam Brody, so it can't be all bad. For men who want to sport the style but not have the awkward experience of someone spotting you from behind and thinking you're a girl, try to balance out the tightfitting V-neck with more masculine pieces, such as boot-cut jeans instead of slim jeans-. While the unisex trend is fashionable for the moment, the key is to keep it balanced. As long as you don't stray too far from your own gender style, you're sure to be sporting a stylish, sexy trend. BETH ROMANIK 0 AVENUE STAFF WRITER When you're home for the holidays and get to the point where you can't possibly stand your relatives any longer, turn to the entity that truly shaped your childhood: TV. These holiday-themed movies will help you enjoy the season, but unlike your younger siblings, they can be turned off when you've had enough. Who knows, maybe watching these favorites will put you in a less Ebenezer-y spirit. "A Christmas Story" If TBS is any indicator, this movie's a classic. (However, whether it should actually be watched for 24 hours straight is debatable.) Somehow it's still funny to watch the unwrapping of the "Italian" garter-clad leg lamp, to feel intense embarrassment at the sight of the pink footy pajamas, and to chant along with everyone as they tell -Ralphie he'll shoot his eye out. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" If horrible relatives are invading your house, your holiday-crazed dad is stringing 250,000 lights on your roof and there'sa squirrel in your Christmas tree, watch this movie. Juliette Lewis sympathizes with you. "Home Alone" or "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" (but never the third one, which, as far as I'm concerned, doesn't exist) I still can't figure out why the hands-on-the-sides-of-the-face-andscreaming thing became so iconic, but it launched Macaulay's career, so who's to argue? Both these movies stand up to the test of time, but they're especially great during this season. I recommend the second, as it contains Tim Curry. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" or "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" That exclamation point makes a difference: Whether you go for the classic cartoon or the new version with a creepy-looking Jim Carrey, this sweet Dr. Seuss story gets you in the holiday spirit. The Whos of Whoville are cute, that "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" song has awesome lyrics, and apparently the movie also teaches some kind of lesson or something. "The Nightmare Before Christmas" Tim Burton wisely created a movie that could be marketed during two major holidays,-but "Christmas" is in the title, so I think that wins out. This movie looks like it might be for kids, but it's scary and cool enough for us, too. The songs are catchy, and it's great to see what Burton can do with animation. (Another great Burton movie for the holidays without being so blatant about it is "Edward Scissorhands." That scene where Edward carves the ice sculpture serves as yet another reminder that Danny Elfman is god.) "Scrooged" Bill Murray, Carol Kane and that woman who was Indiana Jones' love interest i "Raiders of the Lost Ark" star in the adaptation of Dickens' classic Christmas tale. It's modern (or at least it was in 1988) and funny, and it has Robert Goulet! And for all our Hanukkah celebrators, may I recommend "8 Crazy Nights." Somehow, Adam Sandler is less annoying when he's animated. Fashion goes both ways VANESSA DIMAGGIO 0 AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER e0 * * 0 0 Rejoice in these rentals

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 U ALLIGATOR; 19 FLOOR, from page 20 JU wins 13th strain ht WOMEN'S, from page 20 who began to force bad passes. UF ended up with 11 assists to 28 turnovers, a total tied for the second-highest of the season. As far as kicking it out to the perimeter, UF shot 0 for 11 from behind the arc, going without a 3-point field goal for the first time in 216 games. UF also lost the rebounding battle for the first time this season (33-30), and the Gators never led by more than 3 points. The Dolphins, on the other hand, were able to come up with a big shot whenever they needed one. .This isn't Jacksonville's first upset of the season. The Dolphins have already notched victories at Miami and against Massachusetts on a neutral floor. It was, however, the first time Jacksonville defeated a Southeastern Conference opponent. With Wednesday night's outcome, the Dolphins extended a school-record 13-game winning streak. "Jacksonville wanted to win more than we did," Butler said. 'They were willing to do whatever it took to make that happen. We showed spurts of that, but when things got tough they simply outplayed us at crucial moments." 2. SMOOCH ON THE SIDELINE: The Gators trounced Tennessee in their conference opener 59-20, but that became secondary news after the television camera caught Joiner and his roommate, Tebow, in a post-touchdown moment of intimacy. The lightening-quick peck on the cheek became an instant YouTube classic, and although the exchange happened nearly two months ago, comments are still leing posted. Sounds like some people need to get off their computers, go out and get some action of their own. 1. BULLDOG BASH: The world's largest outdoor cocktail party didn't compare to the fiesta the Bulldogs threw in the end zone after Knowshon Moreno scored Georgia's first touchdown. After the entire Georgia squad spilled out onto the field in mid-game celebration, the refs took a good 10 seconds to process the scene before they threw flags. The Gators would be upstaged throughout, falling 42-30. UF to face Southern Conference champ Charleston VOLLEY, from page 20 competition and knows that the regular season no longer matters. "You all start off zero and zero," she said. "Everyone has a clean slate. All the teams are the top teams in the country, and you know you have to play your best to win no matter who it is, even if people think it's a weaker first-round opMcGinnis ponent. "It doesn't matter; they can come in and upset anybody." The weaker first-round opponent in this case would be Charleston (26-7, 16-2 Southern Conference). UF has never played the Cougars, but the Gators are 3-0 all-time against the Southern Conference. Two of those three wins came in the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament. Still, past trends don't always provide rock-solid predictions, and with seven-straight conference titles and three-straight NCAA Tournament berths of their own, the Cougars may provide more than enough fight for a first-round matchup. /" .....

AUBURN BUMMER: All the toilet paper in the state of Alabama couldn't have dried the Gators' tears after this heartbreaker. Urban Meyer lost his first home game on a last-minute field goal, which snapped UF's 18-game winning streak in The Swamp. Even crazier, Wes Byrum had to make the 43-yarder twice after Meyer tried to ice him with a last-second timeout. F

ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007 www.alligatorSports.org UF upset by Jacksonville By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@a gator.org JACKSONVILLE -UF forward Marshae Dotson knew it was a mistake. the moment she heard the whistle. The junior had just picked up her fourth foul hedging out on a screen far away from the basket. She was forced to watch the next 3:40 from the bench while Jacksonville went on an 8-0 second-half run. The Dolphins took a lead they would not relinquish as UF fell 75-64 Wednesday night. In a game that featured 22 lead changes, UF coach Amanda Butler said Jacksonville just wanted it more. "I don't think Marshae coming off the floor had anything to do Women's with the way we closed out the ballBasketball game," Butler said.: "The way we dosed out the game had everything to do with Jacksonville and how passionate they were with beating us." Dotson scored 12 of her 18 points in the first half, including the team's first 4 points, and entered halftime with only one foul. She said the plan going into the game was to pound it into the paint but also look for shooters on the perimeter. UF's high-post player tried to feed the ball into the low post, but Jacksonville did everything it could to thwart the effort by fronting the Gators all night.

UF VOLLEYBALL Gators open NCAA Tournament at home By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer A 25-win season capped off by a 17thconsecutive Southeastern Conference title was practically a formality. Now, the UF volleyball team's true season begins. After Oklahoma and Florida A&M open up the Gainesville Sub-Regional round of the 2007 NCAA Tournament, the Gators will face College of Charleston in their first-round match this evening. The match is scheduled to start at 7:30 but could begin later if the early match goes long. The No. 10 Gators (27-2, 19-1 SEC), will also host a regional round of the NCAA Tournament. "We feel very fortunate," UF coach Mary Wise said. "Last year, only two of the four regional host teams got to play at home [for the first two rounds]. We were fully expecting to go on the road." UF had been preparing to leave Gainesville as early as Tuesday depending on where they were assigned these preliminary matches. "It's kind of sad because it's our last go-around." Kisya Killingsworth UF middle blocker "The advantage of playing at home, I don't think you can even quantify," Wise said. She also speculated that if FAMU and Charleston were not within driving distance of Gainesville, the Gators would likely be playing on the road. For UF's seniors, their final national tournament brings mixed feelings. "It's kind of sad because it's our last go-around, but at the same time it's a big,'Let's go get 'em' kind of thing," Kisya Killingsworth said. UF will be without leading attacker Marcie Hampton, who ruptured her Achilles tendon in Saturday's match against Long Beach State. Senior setter Angie McGinnis said that in order to play well without Hampton, the Gators are likely to switch to a rotation involving three middle blockers on the floor at the same time, including two in the front row. "It's going to be a little bit of a quicker offense than we have been running all year," McGinnis said. "We practiced it a little bit in the beginning of the season but never really went with it." McGinnis said she is eager to start the SEE VOLLEY, PAGE 19 Top moments of '07 season his was one of the most unpredictable years in college football history, and the Gators played no small part in giving the season that distinction. With more craziness sure to come in the bowls, I've compiled the Gators' most memorable Jenna Marina "Did that Floor Jenna-ral really just jrnarina@ailigator.org happen?" moments of this year. Here are the top seven of '07. 7. CALL ME: Tim Tebow may be good at a lot of things, but trash talk? Not so much. He playfully taunted LSU's student section by pretending to dial a phone after his first touchdown pass. The gesture made sense when Tebow later revealed he had received hundreds of threatening calls and messages to his cell phone from Tigers fans in the week leading up to the game. 6. SEEING DOUBLE: In early November, UF was desperate for someone to fill in on the depleted defensive line, so the logical choice was obviously, uh, the backup center? True freshman Mike Pouncey swapped sides, and five days later he started at nose tackle against Vanderbilt despite having almost no experience at the position. I'm just looking forward to the day when Mike takes on twin brother and right guard Maurkice in UF's Circle of Life drill. 5. CALDWELL'S CHUCK: Andre Caldwell has accomplished a lot during his time at UE He battled through a devastating injury, won a national championship and broke a 36-yearold record to become the school's alltime receptions leader. But he secured his legacy in his last game in The Swamp when he caught a 31-yard touchdown pass and promptly threw the ball into the stands. 4.
