UF VOTERS UNITE


More than 9,800


students voted

By CHELSEA KEENAN, KRISTEN HUFF
and THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writers

Raucous cheers filled the air outside of the Orange &
Brew early Thursday morning as the Unite Party swept
UF's Student Government spring elections, taking 42
of the 50 available Senate seats as well as the Executive
ticket.
Just after midnight, SG's Supervisor of Elections Dan
Siegel announced the domination of the Unite Party to
the crowd of about 150. The Progress Party snagged
eight Senate seats.
The Orange & Blue Party and the Keg Party walked
away empty-handed.
Student Government Siegel said 9,847 stu-
Elections dents voted in the election.
Around 8,000 students
voted in the 2008 spring election.
The Unite crowd rippled with rhythmic cheers of
"U-Unite! U-U-Unite!" as supporters hugged and high-
fived each other outside the Reitz Union Game Room.
Victorious presidential candidate Jordan Johnson at-
tributed his win partly to a clean campaign and the pas-
sion of his party.
He admitted there were other factors at play.
"We had really damn good Greek support," Johnson
said, before the results were announced.
Johnson's parents attended the occasion.
His mother, Darlene, had tears streaming down her
face.
"We're just elated," she said. "It's just in his blood.
His dad's a four-term state legislator. He grew up watch-
ing him. He was obviously paying attention."

UF ACADEMICS

Undergraduate nursing, education may face cuts


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligatororg

UF has asked the College of Education and
the College of Nursing to submit proposals
presenting the pros and cons of cutting their
undergraduate education programs.
Those are the only two colleges that have
been asked by UF to present such proposals,
said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes.
UF Provost Joe Glover wrote in an e-mail
that both of the colleges have focused more


on graduate education in recent years, and
they were asked to examine the possibility of
cutting undergraduate programs because of
UF's desire to focus more on graduate educa-
tion and research, which was affirmed by the
Board of Trustees at its annual retreat Friday.
Sikes said the education offered at both
colleges could also be earned at other public
universities in Florida and potentially at Santa
Fe College.
Larry Lansford, College of Education
spokesman, said the college has shifted to-
ward a focus in graduate education.


Only 556 of more than 1,800 students in
the college are enrolled in majors that have
an undergraduate component, according to
Lansford.
Undergraduates currently enrolled would
be able to finish their degrees, he said.
The majors, elementary education and
early childhood education, also include a fifth
year of study that culminates in a master's de-
gree.
But the fact that the college has been fo-
cusing more on graduate education doesn't
mean it's eager to give up its undergraduate


programs.
"It's something we've been doing for over
a hundred years," Lansford said.
A letter addressed to UF officials and
signed by 57 faculty members from the college
also urges UF not to cut the programs.
A Facebook group called "Save Under-
graduate Education at UF," which opposes the
elimination of undergraduate programs at UF
had more than 800 members as of Wednesday
night.
Lansford said it is not yet known how much

Car with body in back seat had 7 tickets
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) A car found in a Gainesville neigh-
borhood with a dead body in the back seat had been ticketed seven
times by city parking enforcement.
Police found the body when a resident called authorities Mon-
day afternoon to report the car, which had been parked on the street
for days. A preliminary autopsy helped police identify the body as
42-year-old John Waldo, who had been missing since Feb. 11. Police
say the autopsy revealed no obvious cause of death. Investigators
are awaiting toxicology results, which may take up to six weeks.
City records show the first ticket was issued to the 2001 BMW on
Feb. 12, the day after Waldo was last seen alive.

about passing safety, UPD Lt.
Stacy Ettel said.
The detail's goal is to inform
the drivers what they are doing is
wrong, not ticket them, he said.
"Our goal is education," Ettel
said. "The majority of our con-
tacts receive warnings."
Another frequent viola-
tion, Ettel said, is when scooter
and motorcycle drivers pass a
stopped bus by driving into the
bike lane.
During the detail, Officer Will
Sasser pulled over a Mazda van
that drove past a barricade near
Turlington Hall.
When Sasser asked for iden-

himself as James Williams and
told Sasser his driver's license
was suspended.
According to the UPD arrest
report, when Sasser did a check
on Williams, he found that Wil-
liams had a record of about 10
traffic violations.
Williams was arrested, taken
to the Alachua County Jail and
charged with a third-degree felo-
ny for driving with a suspended
license and being a habitual of-
fender.

FBI searches UF prof's office under suspicion of fraud


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

The FBI searched the office of
UF professor Samim Anghaie for
suspected fradulent grant propsals
to NASA on Wednesday.
Investigators showed up at
the office in the Nuclear Science
Building just before 8 a.m. and left
around 3:30 p.m., said UF spokes-
man Steve Orlando.
The search was part of an inves-
tigation being conducted by mul-
tiple federal agencies, according


to a U.S. Attorney's Office news
release.
A search warrant alleges there
is cause to believe that Anghaie's
company, New Era Technology
(NETECH), intentionally over-
paid Anghaie while underpaying
other employees and creating ille-
gitimate employees that were paid
money through the grants.
"NETECH... diverted hundreds
of thousands of dollars of illegally
obtained government funds from
their corporate bank account to
their personal bank accounts," it
stated.


The warrant stated employees
of the company used some of the
money to buy land, a condomini-
um and vehicles,
including a 2007
BMW.
The company
received about
$2.5 million in
grants from
NASA since
2000, according
to the warrant.
Anghaie is listed as the direc-
tor/vice president of the company,
according to the warrant.


His wife, Sousan, is listed as the
president.
Their son Hamid is listed as the
director. Their other son, Ali, is
listed as an employee in some of
the grants.
The warrant stated that there is
cause to believe the four of them
violated federal laws with offenses
including theft of public money,
mail or wire fraud and laundering
of monetary instruments.
Orlando said, to his knowledge,
no other UF employees are being
investigated.
Orlando said Anghaie, who


earns a salary of $111,401.53 at UF,
has been placed on paid admin-
istrative leave, which is standard
procedure when an employee is
involved in an investigation of this
nature.
Anghaie has worked at UF since
October of 1980, Orlando said.
He said UF is cooperating with
the investigation but referred fur-
ther comment to the U.S. Attor-
ney's Office, which did not return
phone calls Wednesday.
Officials at NASA and the FBI
could not be reached for com-
ment.


Peaceful Paths, chiropractor's office destroyed in fire


* THE BUILDING WAS A TOTAL LOSS.

A Gainesville building burned to the
ground early Wednesday morning, destroy-
ing the office of a chiropractic group and of the
non-profit organization Peaceful Paths.
Gainesville Police officers discovered the
fire at 2100 NW 53rd Ave. at 1:30 a.m. while


on routine patrol. Nobody was in the offices,
and there were no injuries, said Carol Davis,
spokeswoman for Gainesville Fire Rescue.
When GFR arrived, flames were 40 feet high
and the Peaceful Paths building had sustained
significant damages. Firefighters focused on
preventing the fire from spreading.
Peaceful Paths is a non-profit organization
that assists domestic violence victims.


The fire also consumed a building that
housed Physicians Group, LLC, but it did not
spread to nearby apartments.
Local "They were able to get it un-
News der control fairly quickly," Da-
vis said.
Trish White, case manager
for Peaceful Paths, said that the organization
will rebuild as soon as possible. She said ser-


vices will lapse only about a week while the
organization arranges a temporary office.
People have offered money, supplies and
even office space to help the organization deal
with the loss.
"We know that we will land on our feet,"
White said.

Ash Wednesday begins Lent, people forego luxuries

By KATIE EMMETS As a stay-at-home dad, Walsh I
Alligator Staff Writer said he hasn't slept in five years"
kemmets@alligator.org because of his three young daugh-
ters.


So begins another season of
people giving up luxuries for God.
Wednesday kicked off the 40
day Lenten Journey for the Catho-
lic, Lutheran and Anglican reli-
gions.
Jennifer Kacerosky, a Catho-
lic UF senior, said that on Ash
Wednesday, members of the
Catholic religion bring their palm
fronds from the previous year's
Palm Sunday to mass.
The fronds are burned and the
ashes are smeared on the foreheads
of Catholics in the shape of a cross
to symbolize cleansing.
Kacerosky said she is not giv-
ing up anything this year. Instead,
she will be adding routines to her
daily life to better her relationship
with God.
"I'm planning on going to daily
mass and praying the Rosary ev-
ery day," Kacerosky said. "I have
always had a problem with pray-
ing the Rosary daily and I think
Lent would be a perfect time for
me to start."
"I'm giving up sleep," joked
Mike Walsh, 46.


"I'm really giving up vulgari-
ties," Walsh said. "Not all of them,
just various ones."
Walsh said he doesn't like it
when his 4-and-a-half-year-old re-
peats them.
UF Senior Nelson Burke said
two years ago,
Around he gave up sex.
Gainesville "It was horri-
ble," Burke said.
"Lent is really long."
He said the experience he had
two years ago was just like that
of Josh Hartnett's character in
the 2002 movie "40 Days and 40
Nights."
"It does let you bring your re-
lationship to different levels when
sex isn't involved," Burke said,
adding that the person he was dat-
ing wasn't always happy about his
decision.
Catholic Charities Employee
Sabrina Miller, 24, said she is going
to be taking better care of herself
for Lent this year.
"I am going to benefit myself
by eating healthy and exercising,"
Miller said. "I'm going to start be-

ed the 7 p.m. mass as converting confirmation. "Everything is going to taste
Catholics. She said she will be giving up boring from now on," he said.

Concert, speaker aim to inspire faith in UF students


* THE SHOW BEGINS AT 8:30 P.M.

By LAUREN MARINO
Alligator Contributing Writer

As if Turlington fliering didn't drive stu-
dents bananas already, a man in a gorilla suit
chased a man dressed as a banana alongside


about 170 people holding hands in a line
stretching from the Hub to the Plaza of the
Americas on Wednesday afternoon.
This was one of the promotional stunts
AFTERdark used to publicize its Christian
show tonight at 8:30 in the O'Connell Cen-
ter. The night will consist of a concert by
Copeland, an alternative rock band from


Florida, and a presentation from Joe White,
a frequent inspirational speaker to the NFL
and MLB, said Andrew Hanna, student di-
rector of the UF event.
"He is one of the most incredible influen-
tial speakers of our time," Hanna said.
Don Ford, president of AFTERdark,
started the nationwide organization in Oc-


tober 2000. The event has been to over 100
college campuses across the U.S., and sev-
eral hundred thousand students have been
in attendance.
"We just wanted to expose college stu-
dents to the person of Jesus so they could
decide if they felt like he was in any way rel-
evant to their lives today," Ford said.

Former Miss Fla. details her eating disorder struggle


By REBECCA WEISS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A former Miss Florida and UF
alumna spoke about her struggles
with an eating disorder to about 30
students and faculty Wednesday
night on the Plaza of the Americas.
UF's first "Lights of Hope" can-
dle-lighting ceremony was held in
honor of National Eating Disorders
Awareness Week 2009. People lis-
tened to speeches and stories from
those who are or have been strug-
gling and lit candles in memory of
those who have passed away and in
honor of those still fighting.
Allison L. Kreiger, president
and founder of H.O.P.E Helping
Other People Eat as well as Miss
Florida 2006, was the keynote speak-


er for the night's event and detailed
her struggle with the disease and
her road to recovery.
"My eating disorder was nothing
about me losing weight," she told
the group. "I felt like I had lost con-
trol of my life and my feelings were
transferred into the disorder."
Kreiger said that as a young
girl she was always in a competi-
tive environment because she was
a baton twirler and was constantly
practicing. When high school came
around, she became frustrated and
realized that she wanted to be a
"normal" kid with a social life.
"I came home from the gym one
day and I didn't mean to throw up,
but I did, and it made me feel bet-
ter," she said. "Eventually, I would
only eat to get sick because it made


"I felt like I had lost control
of my life and my feelings
were transferred into the
disorder."
Allison L. Kreiger
H.O.P.E president and founder

me feel better in my mind it be-
came an addiction."
When Kreiger realized that she
couldn't focus and that she had lost
her endurance in the gym, she ap-
proached her parents and told them
about her problem. She was disap-
pointed, however, when they didn't
know what to do about the situation.
After a few months, she tried again
and this time, they were prepared.
"I was terrified that I wouldn't


be around the next day," she said.
"I realized how precious life was,
and that was the pivotal point."
Kreiger was taken to an outpatient
facility to receive treatment. When
she arrived at UF as a freshman, she
went straight to the Student Health
Care Center and began helping oth-
ers.
Her efforts grew and eventually
became her platform for the Miss
America competition, she said.
"It's one of the best feelings -
even if it's just having a shoulder to
cry on to be that means of saving
lives," she said. "I feel fortunate to
still be around to fulfill that bigger
purpose in life."
After her speech, the group
formed a circle and litpurple candles.
"With each candle flame, we re-


member," said Dr. Lisa J. Merlo, as-
sistant professor at UF's psychiatry
department. "We light to guide us
toward a better tomorrow."
Once the candles were burning,
guests had a chance to share their
stories, or the story of someone they
knew. The crowd was timid at first,
but after sophomore Katie Popeil
told her story, others were willing to
as well.
Popeil, who has had her disorder
for about four years, said she's been
in recovery for about six months.
"Hearing Allison's story made
me confident that I can achieve re-
covery and live the life I've wanted,"
she said. "If you're struggling, reach
out. I waited a long time, and I'm
having a harder time recovering be-
cause I was so wrapped up in it."


FDS approves new drug promising thicker eyelashes


* ONE-MONTH SUPPLY IS $120.

By VICTORIA PHILLIPS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Have the prayers of short-lashed ladies
everywhere finally been answered?
A new FDA-approved prescription drug
that claims to provide a visible difference in
your lash length, color and thickness will
soon be available to Gainesville residents.
"It's as easy as wiping eyeliner on every
day," said Dr. Miranda Whitmer a derma-
tologist at Gainesville Dermatology Aes-
thetic Center.
The drug is a variation of Lumigan, the


company's glaucoma medication. Doctors
found the solution was improving hair loss
on glaucoma patient's lash line, and began
testing Latisse.
At this point, Allergan can't pinpoint ex-
actly why the drug stimulates growth, but
it believes the drug increases the amount of
hair grown during the growth cycle, accord-
ing to a blog by Scientific American.
Close to 80 percent of people that used
Latisse saw an increase in fullness, darkness
and length by week 16, with a 106 percent
increase in fullness alone, according to the
product's Web site.
The trick, however, is keeping up with
the treatments. There is still debate on how
often treatment should continue to maintain


results, Whitmer said.
One bottle is about $120 and comes with
60 applicators, or a 30-day supply.
The application process is simple, she
said. Before going to sleep each
Student night place a drop of the solu-
Life tion onto an applicator, rubbing
it at the base of your upper eye-
lashes.
Lash extensions, a more traditional al-
ternative to enhancing lashes, can cost
anywhere from $20 to $50 and last about
two weeks. They can cause damage to the
lashes underneath, said Tara Andrisin, a
physician's assistant for dermatology at
Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center.
UF freshman Christina Frick said she has


been using fake eyelashes for dance perfor-
mances since high school, and she spends
around $12 for one tube of mascara.
"For $2, I can deal with annoying eyelash
glue," she said. "This drug may eventually
be worth my money, but I'm pretty skepti-
cal."
With the hefty $120 price tag, UF sopho-
more Lisa Marx said she would only shell
out the money for rapid results.
"If I'm paying that much money, I should
be able to see a difference in four minutes
not four weeks," she said.
Overall, the product is going to benefit
those that want the look of makeup with-
out having to take the extra time to put it on
each day, Andrisin said.

Editorial


Don't Hate

Amendment 1 a leap

backward for civil rights

s one of the most progressive cities in the U.S., Gainesville
prides itself on being a place where people from all
walks of life can reside without fear of discrimination.
Americans across the nation descend upon our city with
hopes of being treated fairly regardless of their sexual orienta-
tion or gender identity. In Gainesville, citizens do not have to
worry about losing their jobs or homes because they identify
as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Simply put, people are
protected by local anti-discrimination laws to ensure that the
quality of life is consistent for everyone that calls the city home.
Sadly, the quality of life in Gainesville may change forever if
we do not take action against a devious agenda.
March 24th's city election ballot will feature a proposed
amendment to the Gainesville City Charter titled, "Charter
Amendment 1." If passed, the bill will eliminate the city's power
to legally protect citizens from discrimination and instead hand
that power over to the state. This legislation seeks to unfairly
strip the rights of innumerable citizens a gross misstep back-
ward for a country that prides itself as open to "change."
By saying "yes" to Charter Amendment 1, city law would no
longer recognize Gainesville's Human Rights Ordinance and be
forced to revert to the Florida Civil Rights Act. Unfortunately,
there is a stark difference between the two pieces of legislation
as the state act does not include protection for gender identity
or sexual orientation. Furthermore, Gainesville would not have
the opportunity to add additional protections in the future to
ensure equal rights regarding veteran status, socio-economic
status and political party affiliation. Existing special protections
would be stripped the moment the act was passed.
Gainesville is hardly alone in championing anti-discrimina-
tion protections for all of its residents. There are more than 100
other cities across the country who have adopted a progressive
mentality to ensure that every citizen can lead a life without the
fear of hate. If Gainesville loses its ability to provide a place to
live free of inequality and discrimination, who is to say that the
other cities won't soon face a similar fate?
The issue at hand is not about whether you agree or disagree
with the lifestyle choices of a critical portion of our population.
Rather, you must ask yourself if you believe that all Americans
should be able to enjoy the most basic of civil rights.
The issue is not about "men in women's bathrooms," and
it's not about the breadth of local government. Our city govern-
ment has a responsibility to its citizens to protect them from un-
fair treatment. Gainesville has gone to great lengths to protect
all its citizens from institutionalized hate and has extended pro-
tection to groups of people who face oppression from all angles.
With the passage of this amendment, people who already live
as second-class citizens would lose all legal recourse against dis-
crimination their livelihoods could be yanked out from under
them, and all they could do is suck it up and move. Gay, lesbian,
bisexual and transgender people must then fight even harder
within a system that already considers them inferior.
Such an example paints a bleak picture in the minds of the
Editorial Board. We wonder how far-right groups can possibly
rationalize such outlandish legislation when it clearly exudes
overtones of sheer hate.
Gainesville cannot be forced to take a step backward consid-
ering all of the progress that we've made. When people think of
our city, they must be able to view it as a model for how equal-
ity can and will work anywhere in the country.
If passed, Charter Amendment 1 would hinder the city's
ability for growth as businesses, and students will have no
choice but to go elsewhere.
With the livelihoods of so many innocent people at stake, we
implore you to take a strong stand against discrimination and
vote "no" on Charter Amendment 1.

Amendment will harm local businesses


Has anyone actually read Gainesville Charter
Amendment 1? Or more importantly, has any-
one actually read the ordinance that it will af-
fect?
Yes, the amendment will remove language explicitly
prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation
and gender identity. This essentially amounts to repeal-
ing the changes passed to the Gainesville Ordinance
No. 051225 on Jan. 28, 2008.
In other words, the amendment will make Gainesville
discrimination laws the same as everywhere else in Ala-
chua County.
Anti-discrimination laws are a good thing, and most
people, including the drafters of the amendment, agree
that businesses should not discriminate based on gen-
der identity. Unfortunately, the language of the ordi-
nance is so broad that it would constitute an unjust en-
croachment into the rights of private business.
The amendments passed in 2008 do not simply add
gender identity to a list of prohibited reasons for dis-
crimination. They also added a large section ( Section
8-69 (c) ) that concern "shared facilities" such as rest-
rooms and locker rooms.
A business cannot deny use of such a facility on the
basis of gender identity unless the business provides
"adequate facilities" to accommodate the person's gen-
der identity. The ordinance then goes on to define uni-
sex restrooms as an "adequate facility."
In other words, businesses may be forced to build
expensive new facilities in addition to existing men's
and women's rooms. This is an unfair and economically
unfeasible assault on local businesses.
The definition of gender identity is also disturbing.


Johnathan Lott
letters@alligator.org


Anyone who professes to be
either gender "by verbal state-
ment" will be legally entitled
to use the restroom of his or
her choice.
While there are some trans-
gendered people this would
benefit, there are many people
who would be made uncom-


fortable at the thought of any-
one being able to enter a ladies' room. This would hurt
businesses within the city limits.
Amendment 1 is not about legalizing "discrimination
based on... sexual identity," as the Alligator reported
on Monday. First off, it's "gender identity."
If businesses want to discriminate, they can easily
move a few miles outside of the city limits. Many local
businesses are already outside the city limits and thus it
is "legal" to discriminate.
Of course, the overwhelming majority of these busi-
nesses don't discriminate on sexual orientation or gen-
der identity. If this happened, there would be pages of
discrimination claims filling the pages of this newspa-
per. Notice their absence.
I fully support laws which ban discrimination based
on sexual orientation and gender identity, but the
Gainesville city ordinance goes beyond that to harm our
local businesses in order to appear progressive. I say
"appear" progressive because the city actually exempts
itself from the ordinance.
Vote for Amendment 1 on March 24.

Letter to the Editor
Words taken out of context
In Wednesday's article that cov-
ered President Bernie Machen's
town hall forum, I was appalled to
see that what I said was taken out of
context in order to beef up a medio-
cre story.
I would like for the readership of
the Alligator to note that I fully sup-


port the administration in this time
and completely understand that the
administration is unable to know
at this point what will happen next
year.
While I am worried that my pro-
gram maybe cut, I am more worried
that the UF student body will take
what this writer said to be accurate.


This town hall forum was open to
the student body and gave Machen
the ability to reach out to students
and see what their concerns were,
which is genuinely what happened.
Had the reporter been listening to
the forum and not circling the room
like paparazzo, she would have no-
ticed that.


As for how my quote was taken
out of context, I am ashamed of the
quality of the Alligator's writing
staff. I would call this article a fa-
cade of muckraking journalism, but
I am afraid that this term would be
too lenient on the writer. I implore
the editors of the Alligator to invest
more time in reading the articles


presented to them by their staff.
Not only will this raise the writ-
ing quality from poor to mediocre,
but also change its image from be-
ing the tabloid with the crossword
to being a respectable piece of jour-
nalism.

Technology has a stranglehold on population, mass media


O the Colbert Report recently, there
as a joke in which Stephen pretend-
ed it was 1997 and wheeled out an old
dial-up modem, which he used to connect to
America Online. And, just like that, I was
nostalgic.
How I missed that grating dial-up process
and the frequent disconnections.
But, through the nostalgia, as I surfed the
Internet effortlessly on my fancy wireless
laptop, I started thinking about just how far
technology has come and how weird the
world will be to us 20 years from now.
Being the raconteur that I am, maybe a
story will help illustrate my point. A few days
ago I was hanging out with a good friend of
mine. We were just talking, joking about ran-
dom things pretty much the usual. Then
we both got text messages. For about the next
15 minutes, we barely said a word as each of
us got absorbed in sending and replying to
several texts at once. And what's absolutely


hilarious what makes me laugh to no end
- is that this is what, today, passes for two
people hanging out.
Remember the days before text messaging
- before cell phones even when in order
to hang out people actually had to (weird,
huh?) talk to each other. A person could get
hit with a wave of social anxiety just thinking
about it. I can't wait to see what things are
like for the next generation or so.
I fully expect children to invite their
friends over after school and each of them
plug into their very own virtual reality head-
set. One could be playing baseball, one at a
concert (the thought of how strange music
will be in the future, considering that in 50
short years we went from Sinatra to Nirvana,
terrifies me) and another, assuming global
warming leaves us with any water, could be
jet-skiing. And this kind of intensive social
interaction would be reserved only for the
best of friends!


The comedy of
E the future as some
sort of introvert's




letters@alligator.org ways, technologi-
cal advances are
about "could" and
not "should." I mean, is there really anyone
alive who thinks the iPod Shuffle was a good
idea? Technology is increasingly cutting us
off not only from the world but from one an-
other. Today a person doesn't even have to
leave his home to buy groceries. One can do
all their "social" interaction on the Internet,
if so inclined.
We're becoming a society of pale vam-
pires and not the Edward Cullen type so
praised on the message boards.


Technology has, of course, done great
things for the world. Medical advances
have saved countless lives, and only a Tyler
Durden-style Luddite would want to undo
such things. But the fact remains that some
advances of technology generally in the
field of mass communication cause just as
much harm, if not more, than they do good.
I'm reminded of a fantastic scene from
"Inherit the Wind" where Henry Drum-
mond tells us that "Gentlemen, progress has
never been a bargain. You've got to pay for
it. Sometimes I think there's a man behind a
counter who says, 'All right, you can have a
telephone, but you'll have to give up privacy,
the charm of distance...Mister, you may con-
quer the air, but the birds will lose their won-
der, and the clouds will smell of gasoline!'"
Think about it. And, please, do it outside
and with some IRL friends.

UF VOTERS UNITE

Progress earns 8 Senate seats; Orange & Blue, Keg empty-handed


ELECTION from page 1
Johnson's father, Randy, R-Cele-
bration, was a representative in the
Florida House from 1998 to 2006.
"We're very proud. Jordan has
dedicated himself to the students,"
he said.
Meanwhile, the losing parties
stood dejectedly, shaking their
heads.
"This just shows what happens
when the independent movement
can't get on the same page when
they're facing a behemoth," said
Sen. Mark McShera, presidential
candidate for the Orange & Blue
Party.
Meanwhile, Progress Party presi-
dential candidate Ben Dictor took a
drag on his cigar at the announce-
ment of Unite's Executive win.
"We demonstrated to the Student
Body that an independent body can
run and be victorious," he said, add-
ing the party has made a name for
itself.
Current Student Body President
Kevin Reilly shouted, high-fived,
hugged and fist-pumped when
Johnson was announced as his suc-
cessor.
"I was surprised. I was expect-
ing a run-off," Reilly said. "I think
I'm leaving Student Government in
very good hands."


Results for the ballot's refer-
endum questions were also an-
nounced, including one initiative
to deny SG funding to facilities that
require use of biometric data, such
as a hand scan, for entry. About 64
percent of students voted to have a
tobacco-free campus, and about 68
percent supported creating a fund
for UF's BabyGator program. Also,
88 percent voted in favor of chang-
ing Florida law to allow an Early
Voting location on campus.
The last day of campaigning in-
volved a strong push from all par-
ties involved. Many touted party
signs between Turlington Plaza and
Plaza of the Americas.
When polls closed at 8 p.m., par-
ty members headed out to pop open
a few beers and relax before meeting
at the Orange & Brew around mid-
night to hear results.
About 30 members of the Prog-
ress Party packed the outside patio
of Tim and Terry's, the local pub
known for its live music and gritty
atmosphere.
The air was thick with cigar
smoke and live jazz music from
inside. At least three cases of Pabst
Blue Ribbon were ordered before
the party headed over to congregate
at the Orange & Brew.
The mood was optimistic but
cautious as candidates discussed
their chances.


"Whether or not we won the
war just yet, I don't know, but we
definitely beat the counter revolu-
tionaries," the party's presidential
candidate Ben Dictor said, wearing a
maroon beret and leather Member's
Only jacket.
Meanwhile, the mood was cel-
ebratory at The Swamp Restaurant,
the top floor of which was rented out
by the Unite Party. About 75 party
supporters attended, drinking and
chatting about the election season
Down the way, about 30 Orange
& Blue Party supporters gathered
at Gator City to hang out before
heading over to the Orange & Brew
around 10:30 p.m.
Cheers of "Let's Go Gator" rang
out from members of the Orange &
Blue Party when the Unite Party ar-
rived at the Orange & Brew around
midnight, referring to their claim
that the Unite Party and the Gator
Party from last fall are one in the
same. The Progress Party was the
first to arrive around 10:45 p.m. oc-
casionally launching into a deep
baritone rendition of "Solidarity
Forever."
Most parties shelled out more
than $5,000 for their campaigns.
The Orange & Blue Party spent
$5,204.50 and the Progress Party
spent $5,152.35. The Unite Party
surpassed both, spending $8,324.54,
while the Keg Party, which only ran


candidates for the executive ticket
raised about $200.
The night's beer tab was about
$370 at the Orange & Brew.
The Orange & Blue Party also
dropped $720 on airing campaign
ads against the Unite Party. McShera
said he did not regret airing the ads.
"The fact that Jordan Johnson
doesn't think he has to follow Flor-
ida law is worth voters knowing,"
he said, referring to the ad in which
Johnson is quoted during an Elec-
tions Commission meeting.


^H~kl^^S^


Progress Party candidate Nick
Mildebrath criticized the ad.
"On every level the ad was crap,"
Mildebrath said.
Johnson said he felt rewarded for
running a clean campaign.
"Nobody wants to hear you say
bad things about somebody, espe-
cially when they're not true," he
said.
There have been about 40 elec-
tions complaints filed this campaign
season. The last 15, filed Wednes-
day, will be discussed Friday.

results outside the Reitz Union. The party did not win any seats.

cutting the college's undergraduate programs
could save. The college had a budget of about
$29 million in 2007-2008, he said.
The College of Nursing, which had a bud-


get of almost $13 million in 2007-2008, not in-
cluding grants and private funds, has also been
shifting its focus to graduate education, said
Tracy Wright, the college's spokeswoman.
She said the college has not been planning
to eliminate the programs, however, and she
didn't know how much the move could save.


The college has 394 graduate students and
340 undergraduates cur-
UF rently enrolled. Another
Academics 333 freshmen and sopho-
mores are hoping to get
into the undergraduate program when they
become juniors, she said.


Both Lansford and Wright said they
couldn't say if professors would be laid off
if undergraduate programs were cut and
stressed the fact that no decisions have been
made yet.
"It's one of many alternatives to deal with
the budget cuts," Wright said.

Slumdog


more than


love story

JACK BENGE
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Sometimes good does triumph
over evil, impossible odds are
overcome and the hero kisses the
girl right before the credits roll.
Sounds pretty cheesy right?
Danny Boyle's Mumbai fairytale
"Slumdog Millionaire" embodies
all of the heartwarming qualities
of many rags-to-riches tales. But
despite the obvious cliches that
accompany any star-crossed love
story, "Slumdog Millionaire" is a
fully realized introspection on the
human condition beset by pov-
erty and thrown
out into a cruel
world. And al-
though the road
to redemption
is at times far-
fetched, the end
of the journey is
Boyle so fulfilling that
this story of love
and perseverance trumps any is-
sue of believability.
"Slumdog Millionaire" strad-
dles two story arcs throughout the
film, depicting the lead charac-
ter Jamal's stint on India's "Who
Wants to be a Millionaire" while
delving through the back story
of the boy's troubled and violent
childhood. A family life fractured
by death and poverty leads Jamal
and his brother Salim to grow up
quickly in the slums of India.
What is so clever about the film
is the interweaving of the flash-
backs with the real-time events
surrounding the game show. Each
question that Jamal answers on
his way toward the 20 million ru-
pee prize was known because of a
chance encounter or random event
from his past. Jamal is forced to
reveal his reasoning behind each
answer because at the film's start,
he is in jail on suspicion for cheat-
ing on the game show. How can
a poor, uneducated kid from the
slums really know the answer to
every question?
The film's strength is in its en-
grossing story. Three sets of actors
portray the leads in the film, de-
picting the evolution of the char-
acters Jamal, Salim and Latika
against the evolution of the city of
Mumbai itself. While no one actor
carries the film or delivers those
singular lines that films go down
in history for, the movie proceeds
to entice and entertain.
It seems fitting that a movie de-
picting the triumph of the human
spirit over incredible odds would
rely on an ensemble cast and a
strong script to reach Oscar glory.
"Slumdog Millionaire" won eight
of the 10 Academy Awards it was
nominated for Sunday, including
Best Picture, Best Director and
Best Adapted Screenplay.
"Slumdog Millionaire" delivers
on its fairytale promise, providing
a two-hour escape into a world
where "happily ever after" doesn't
seem that far-fetched after all.

Girl Talk spins samples, shows


For all the crazy onstage
antics and dramatic perfor-
mances, Gregg Gillis is a mod-
est man.
He makes no pretenses of
living a high-profile rock-star
life or being the coolest kid on
the block.
"When I'm home I just work
on music or watch TV on the
couch," he said.
"When I perform, it's my
weekend as much as anyone
else's."
He feels no need to include
that his weekends, unlike
most others', take him from
his hometown of Pittsburgh to
Paris, San Francisco and Spain,
where he moves crowds of up
to thousands of people into a
frenzy.
"People don't realize the
level of safety and security
measures taken before a show
to prepare for craziness that
will go down," he said.
Gillis has been perform-
ing as Girl Talk for the past 10
years, but since 2006, with the
release of "Night Ripper," Girl
Talk's success caught on at an
infectious rate.
He credits the album's suc-
cess with timing. At about that
time, people were more famil-
iar with the idea of remixing
music, and media had become
very interactive, he said.
The taboos that were in
place in the underground
scene of sampling pop music
were fading.
"Before, there was this feel-
ing that if I was sampling a
Donnas song, I was pissing
people off or going against
their aesthetic," he said.
"Now in the indie or under-


EPHANIE GRANADA AVENUE WRI
ground scene it's not sacrilege
to mix with Britney."
Girl Talk came along and
filled the area where experi-
mental music met accessibil-
ity. The media caught hold of
the album and fans haven't
stopped dancing since.
"I knew it was more accessi-
ble, but I didn't know it would
be so big," he said.
For a year he held down his
job as a biomedical engineer,
playing gigs only on the week-
end and on
days off.
He was
happy to
keep a day
job and ex-
pand his
side project,
Gillis but the mo-
ment came
when he had to choose.
"All of a sudden I was head-
lining and selling out shows
and getting offers to go to Eu-
rope," he said. "I had to make
the obvious choice."
While most musicians and
even most other people would
drop their lives in a heartbeat
for the chance to record and
perform music full time, Girl
Talk was more hesitant.
"It was unprecedented that
anyone made a living out of
this," Gillis said.
"The biggest guy [in my
genre] I looked up to, at the
most played to 1000 people in
Cleveland, I thought 'Wow I'll
never be that big.'"
Before Girl Talk became an
international phenomenon,
Gillis was playing to crowds
of 30 people or less, making
enough money to cover gas.


Now his live shows yield
enough revenue to make a liv-
ing.
"Feed the Animals," Girl
Talk's latest album, is sold at
whatever price fans set.
Following the path of Ra-
diohead and Nine Inch Nails,
Girl Talk accepts the reality of
music on the Internet.
Girl Talk gives fans the op-
tion to take the album free, as
they can easily do online any-
way, or contribute as much as
they want.
"Live shows are what make
a living. If I hadn't made any
money off "Feed the Animals,"
I would have been OK," he
said.
"I feel very lucky to be able
to live off my fan base."
He reciprocates by allowing
his fans to be part of the show.
Girl Talk shows are a constant
flow of the audience and per-
former feeding off each other.
The man behind the laptop
will just as soon run into the
crowd and steal someone's
beer as he will invite fans on-
stage.
"There's a level of trust
there, like on some level they
are in the band," he said.
"Being on stage, they could
just as easily screw up the
show."
Gillis' interactivity with
the crowds he plays to and his
commitment to responding
to fans leads some audience
members to form a sense of
friendship with the artist.
"It's not like there is some
creepy pseudo-friendship go-
ing on," he said. "But some
people definitely feel a connec-
tion."


Facebook, BlackBerry makes cheating difficult


* ASHLEY ROSS
In a world where more is better, mo-
* nogamy can sometimes lead us down a
boring path. With more than 50,000 stu-
dents at UF, why only date one person?
0 Who wants to be stuck with only one
make-out partner when you can have
Stwo, three or even four?
We're in college, and it's the time
in our life when hormones are at an
* all-time high, flying around University
Avenue late at night seeking a drunken
mate to stumble back to the dorms with
* us. And, hey, there's no problem with
that.
0 It's time to experience, to get out
there and see what life has to offer. Lov-
ers are easily comparable to a pair of
0 shoes. You have to try on a few pairs on
before finding the perfect fit.
However, while fooling around with
two (or more) people at once may sound
fun and liberating, it might not be so
feasible.
Sleeping and sneaking around used


* AVENUE WRITER
to be so simple. George would go out
with Sally on Thursday night for din-
ner at Dragonfly and then meet up with
Sue at Swamp for a drink later that same
night. And there were no problems.
But now, Sally will write on George's
wall as soon as she gets home to thank
him for dinner, and this post will cer-
tainly show up on
Sue's news feed or a

I'm here to tell you
that while it may be fun and extra-plea-
surable to have a secondary sex buddy,
you are not safe anywhere.
It's a small world, boys and girls, and
there's no chance you'll be able to get
away with fooling around with more
than one person without the other per-


son or people finding out.
With technology out of control, it's
too quick and easy for someone to catch
you and snap a picture on his or her
BlackBerry without you even knowing.
If you're familiar with the "Gossip
Girl" TV show, you know exactly what
I'm talking about. If not, I'm sure you
can imagine. Simply touching the small

nobody hopes for, it's
relatively effortless to get yourself out
of one of these situations.
"Oh that guy? Just a friend I know
from Tutoring Zone. We were taking
a shot in honor of being done with the
class." This can quickly sum up and ex-
cuse a photo. The inquirer might still


have his or her doubts, but for the most
part, you'll be in the clear.
What's even worse than being caught
technologically, though, is being caught
in person. Like I said, this small world
doesn't keep you safe enough, and most
on-the-spot excuses seem made up.
Plus, if you do get caught in person,
even a brilliant excuse won't hide the
remorseful look on your face.
So, the question remains: to cheat or
not to cheat? My suggestion is to weigh
the pros and cons.
Chances are if you're even think-
ing about cheating or sneaking around
behind someone's back, you probably
don't care enough about him or her
anyway, meaning that getting caught
wouldn't be the end of the world.
But if the person you might cheat on
is worth something to you, don't screw
it up (no pun intended), no matter how
horny you may be. Trying out a bunch
of different make-out partners certain-
ly has its perks, but back to the shoes,
there's nothing like a perfect fit.

Nelson's shutout leads to win vs. No. 6 Michigan


n- -uu a ulaillullu / -,,u aluu aiiu
UF pitcher Stacey Nelson throws a pitch during the Gators' 3-0 win against Baylor on Feb. 6. Nelson
threw a shutout against No. 6 Michigan on Wednesday.


* UF SCORED 4 RUNS IN THE
FIRST TWO INNINGS.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

After taking down the No. 6 team
in the nation, Stacey Nelson felt like
she was just getting started.
With Nelson in the circle, the
No. 2 UF softball team (13-2) held
Michigan (12-4) scoreless on three
hits while putting 4 quick runs on
the board Wednesday afternoon in
Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
Nelson (6-2) struck out nine bat-
ters on the day, but the senior ace
felt like she could have kept pitch-
ing for quite some time after the fi-
nal out.
"I had an abnormal amount of
energy before the game today, so I
probably could have pitched four
games," Nelson said.
Nelson kept the Wolverines, who
averaged nearly 4.5 runs per game
before Wednesday, off the score-
board in seven innings of work, but
the Gators removed some of the
pressure from Nelson early in the


game by putting runs on the board.
Tiffany DeFelice, who entered the
game with only one RBI this season,
drove in 2 runs with two outs in the
bottom of the first on a double that
flew just over the shortstop's glove
into left field.
"It felt good because I've been
struggling a little bit lately," DeFe-
lice said. "It felt kind of good to ac-
tually get my job done."
UF coach Tim Walton said he is
confident in the sophomore slugger
to perform in the fifth spot in the or-
der despite her inconsistent play at
the plate early in the season.
"If we're going to win a champi-
onship, it's going to be with Tiffany
DeFelice in the five hole," Walton
said.
"I think that's important for me
to maintain that consistency."
After DeFelice drove in the
Gators' first 2 runs in the first in-
ning, center fielder Kim Waleszonia
followed suit in the second.
Michigan replaced starting pitch-
er Nikki Nemitz (7-2) with Jordan
Taylor after just 1 1/3 innings, but
Waleszonia singled up the middle
to send home 2 more runs, putting

UF BASEBALL

Grand slam powers Gators


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

Anything Eastern Michigan can do,
UF can do better.
After the Eagles launched a two-out
grand slam off Gators starter Anthony
DeSclafani in the third inning, UF right
fielder Riley Cooper blasted one of his
own to the parking lot behind left field on
the first pitch from reliever Corey Chaf-
fins.
Cooper crushed the ball, and it didn't
take long for him to realize it was a home
run.
"(I knew) as soon as I hit it," Cooper
said.
The grand slam from Cooper UF's
first since Cole Figureoa hit one in Miami
on March 2 last season put the Gators
up 8-4 and carried them all the way to
their 17-6 victory Wednesday night at
McKethan Stadium.
Things looked bleak for the No. 24


Gators (5-0) after the Eagles' grand slam.
After scoring 4 runs in the first inning and
having its first five batters get hits, UF's
bats went cold. They didn't tally a hit in
the second, third or fourth inning.
"This year, he's kind of had a
fresh start from the beginning,
and he's earned his way into the
lineup earlier."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

But on a chilly night at McKethan Sta-
dium, Cooper's shot heated the whole
team up UF scored 7 more runs in the
sixth inning, and catcher Buddy Mun-
roe had a 3-run homer of his own. What
looked like it could be a close game be-
came a blowout very quickly.
Compared to last season, when Cooper
hit just .207 and had 25 of his 58 at-bats

UF doesn't merit Tourney spot


The Gators will get good news
on March 15. After a one-year
hiatus, they'll be back in the
NCAA Tournament. The UF logo will
flash on the television screen, and the
players and coaching staff will be able
to breathe a sigh of relief. Their repu-
tation as a prominent basketball pro-
gram will be back.
But they don't deserve it.
Is it because of their effort? No.
Their effort has improved in the past
year, and the players are taking losses
harder than they did last season. They
should be praised for that.
Is it because the Southeastern Con-
ference is as weak as it has been in
years? Not entirely, no. A weak con-
ference actually helps the Gators get
in, and no team should be judged
negatively just because its conference
- which is normally among the elite


off year.
What about
that lack of size
that will surely
Brian Steele lead to them get-
ting dominated
Steele-ing Bases by bigger, stron-
bsteele@alligator.org by bigger, stron-
ger teams in the
tourney? No
again. Plenty of shooter-heavy teams
have made it far based on that ability
alone.
It's because they aren't good
enough. They've come close to being
good enough on several occasions
- but whatever that proverbial sports
hump is, this team can't get over it.
They can't figure out how to take the
next step, at least not as a whole. Nick
Calathes is one of the best players in

end in strikeouts, he's performing
much better for the team.
"He's in the flow of the team
a lot better," UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said.
"This year, he's kind of had a
fresh start from the beginning,
and he's earned his way into the
lineup earlier."
The team had a season-high 18
hits by the time the last out was
made. The Gators are averaging
9.4 runs and 11.8 hits per game af-
ter their first week of the year.
After having no home runs
coming into the night, UF ended
the evening with three.
Senior left fielder Avery Barnes
took one out of the park in the
first at-bat of the game. It was the
Gators' first leadoff homer since
Gavin Dickey hit one against South
Carolina on March 25, 2006.
O'Sullivan emptied the bench
by the end of the night: Fifteen
Gators had a chance at the plate.


The UF pitching staff also had
six pitchers get some experience
Wednesday night.
"We got a lot of guys on the
mound. We got a lot of guys to get
some at-bats," O'Sullivan said. "A
lot of the youngsters got their feet
wet."
The most important experience
might have gone to DeSclafani.
It took three pitches for him
to register his first career strike-
out, but the rest of the freshman's
night wasn't nearly as easy.
DeSclafani came out after the
third inning having allowed 5
earned runs. He struck out four
and walked one in his college de-
but.
Reliever Kevin Chapman (1-0,
0.00 ERA), who pitched the fourth
and fifth innings, earned the vic-
tory for the Gators and got the
game ball.
"He did a really, really nice job
for us, settled things down in the
middle innings," O'Sullivan said.
"That's what you need in games
like this."

PGA TOUR

Woods back in form after injury


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MARANA, Ariz. Tiger Woods said he was
ready to go after eight months away from golf.
Was he ever.
Woods ended his 253-day break from competi-
tion Wednesday with a spectacular start at the Ac-
centure Match Play Championship, going birdie-
eagle to build a quick lead in his opening match
against an overwhelmed Brendan Jones.
Woods poured it on late, eagling the par-5 13th
hole to go 4 up with five holes to play. Jones had
little chance on a day when Woods was as hot as
the desert sun.
The world's No. 1 player said he looked forward
to the rush of competition, something he had not
experienced since he won the U.S. Open in a playoff
June 16 on one good leg. He had season-ending sur-
gery on his left knee a week later.
Fans packed into the bleachers around the first
tee, with more lined up behind the ropes all the way
to the green, and the cheer when Woods walked
onto the tee could be heard all the way down the
fairway.
Woods backed off his tee shot, and without much
expression, belted a fairway metal down the right
side of the fairway.
"You are back!" one spectator shouted.
From 167 yards, Woods hit an 8-iron toward the
middle of the green that caught a ridge and stopped
5 feet from the hole, which he converted for birdie
to go 1 up. The par-5 second was even better, as
Woods posed over his second shot and offered a
gentle fist pump when he stopped 4 feet from the
hole. He never had to make his eagle putt when


Jones settled for par.
So much for the rust at least early.
Woods found the bunker on the par-3 third, the
ball on a slight downslope, leaving him no chance
to get it close. He wound up with a bogey to halve
the hole and didn't look nearly as crisp the rest of
the front nine.
Jones cut into the lead when Woods came up
short of the seventh green and made birdie, then
Woods answered with a 6-foot birdie on the eighth.
He was 2 up heading to the back nine.
The gallery hustled through the desert to watch
every shot, missing some entertain-
ing golf around the rest of Dove
Mountain.
Three days after Phil Mickelson
Sblew a lead and rallied to win at
Riviera, he did it again.
Lefty was 4 up with five holes
to play when former U.S. Open
Woods champion Angel Cabrera won the
next four holes three of those with birdies to
force overtime. Mickelson won on the 19th hole.
Anthony Kim never lost a hole against Lin Wen-
Tang, beating him 7 and 5. Camilo Villegas had the
shortest day of work at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club,
hammering Rod Pampling of Australia, 7 and 6.
Trevor Immelman got off to the best start, holing
out with a 9-iron for eagle on the opening hole. But
the Masters champion wound up losing when Shin-
go Katayama fired off three birdies and an eagle on
the back nine, winning 3 and 2.
That was the lesson for Woods at the Match Play
- the finish is always more important than the
start.


Gators' win restores confidence after weekend loss to No. 3 Washington


SOFT, from page 18


UF up 4-0 after two innings.
After giving up 2 quick runs,
Taylor gave up no runs and only
allowed one hit the rest of the
game, but Michigan was not able


to produce at the plate against
Nelson. Even when the Wolver-
ines threatened to score in the
sixth inning, the Gators took care
of business in the field.
With Michigan's Teddi Ew-
ing in scoring position, Molly
Bausher singled to right field, but


Kelsey Bruder fired the ball in
to catcher Kristina
j Hilberth, ending
the inning and pre-
S serving the shutout.
Softball "I tried to tell
myself before that
batter came up, 'Don't let them


score,' and I let them get a hit,"
Nelson said. "So when your team-
mate can pick you up like that, it
really feels good as a pitcher."
By taking down a highly
ranked opponent with relative
ease, the Gators removed some
of the lingering doubts about the


team after it fell to No. 3 Wash-
ington on Friday in Palm Springs,
Calif.
"After all the ups and downs
that we faced in California, to be
able to come out and still prove
that we still can win was good,"
Nelson said.


BRIAN, from page 18

the nation, but he plays for a team with role players who
are asked to be starters.
"We actually were outplaying them for a good portion
of the game," freshman guard Erving Walker said after
UF's 81-75 loss at LSU, the most recent example of the
team not having what it takes to be a tournament team.
That's the problem. Walker's right. The Gators did out-
play the Tigers for most of the game, and they very well
could have won the game. Instead, they looked like a team
that doesn't know how to win in the last 10 minutes.
They don't understand how to win a "big game," the
game that makes Joe Schmo look up at his TV the next
morning while scarfing down Cheerios and watching
SportsCenter and say, "Nice win, Florida." That hasn't
happened in almost two years now.
I don't know why this is, and I'm not in the locker room
or practice facility to know the truth. What I do know,
however, is that this team will make the tournament based
on its reputation, and they'll lose in the opening weekend
because they aren't deserving of that reputation.
There is always something new that it isn't getting.
Whether it's defensive intensity, focus in practice or, now,
what qualifies as a good shot, this team has not proven it
can put the complete package together with a nice bow on
top. And teams in the NCAA Tournament shouldn't be
given bids without proving this.
"We've played at Florida State, Kentucky, Tennessee,"
Walker said. "We're not going to use (lack of experience)
as an excuse."
Walker is right again. Whether it's a lack of experience
or anything else, there are no more reasons for not taking
the next step.
The reality is, though, that staircase still looks pretty
long to the Gators.

You Decide. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 UF VOTERS UNITE More than 9,800 students voted By CHELSEA KEENAN, KRISTEN HUFF and THOMAS STEWART Alligator Writers Raucous cheers filled the air outside of the Orange & Brew early Thursday morning as the Unite Party swept UF's Student Government spring elections, taking 42 of the 50 available Senate seats as well as the Executive ticket. Just after midnight, SG's Supervisor of Elections Dan Siegel announced the domination of the Unite Party to the crowd of about 150. The Progress Party snagged eight Senate seats. The Orange & Blue Party and the Keg Party walked away empty-handed. Student Government Siegel said 9,847 stuElections dents voted in the election. Around 8,000 students voted in the 2008 spring election. The Unite crowd rippled with rhythmic cheers of "U-Unite! U-U-Unite!" as supporters hugged and highfived each other outside the Reitz Union Game Room. Victorious presidential candidate Jordan Johnson attributed his win partly to a clean campaign and the passion of his party. He admitted there were other factors at play. "We had really damn good Greek support," Johnson said, before the results were announced. Johnson's parents attended the occasion. His mother, Darlene, had tears streaming down her face. "We're just elated," she said. "It's just in his blood. His dad's a four-term state legislator. He grew up watching him. He was obviously paying attention."

Undergraduate nursing, education may face cuts By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Staff Writer tstewa rt@a Iligator org UF has asked the College of Education and the College of Nursing to submit proposals presenting the pros and cons of cutting their undergraduate education programs. Those are the only two colleges that have been asked by UF to present such proposals, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. UF Provost Joe Glover wrote in an e-mail that both of the colleges have focused more on graduate education in recent years, and they were asked to examine the possibility of cutting undergraduate programs because of UF's desire to focus more on graduate education and research, which was affirmed by the Board of Trustees at its annual retreat Friday. Sikes said the education offered at both colleges could also be earned at other public universities in Florida and potentially at Santa Fe College. Larry Lansford, College of Education spokesman, said the college has shifted toward a focus in graduate education. Only 556 of more than 1,800 students in the college are enrolled in majors that have an undergraduate component, according to Lansford. Undergraduates currently enrolled would be able to finish their degrees, he said. The majors, elementary education and early childhood education, also include a fifth year of study that culminates in a master's degree. But the fact that the college has been focusing more on graduate education doesn't mean it's eager to give up its undergraduate programs. "It's something we've been doing for over a hundred years," Lansford said. A letter addressed to UF officials and signed by 57 faculty members from the college also urges UF not to cut the programs. A Facebook group called "Save Undergraduate Education at UF," which opposes the elimination of undergraduate programs at UF had more than 800 members as of Wednesday night. Lansford said it is notyet knownhow much SEE NURSING, PAGE 8 Car with body in back seat had 7 tickets GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -A car found in a Gainesville neighborhood with a dead body in the back seat had been ticketed seven times by city parking enforcement. Police found the body when a resident called authorities Monday afternoon to report the car, which had been parked on the street for days. A preliminary autopsy helped police identify the body as 42-year-old John Waldo, who had been missing since Feb. 11. Police say the autopsy revealed no obvious cause of death. Investigators are awaiting toxicology results, which may take up to six weeks. City records show the first ticket was issued to the 2001 BMW on Feb. 12, the day after Waldo was last seen alive.

LOCAL Detail targets bus passing A UF student avoided a $154 ticket and four points on his driver's license Wednesday. "I was going to be late for class," said UF mechanical engineering student Randy Gruby. "I knew it was wrong." Gruby got an improper pass warning from University Police officer David Miles for crossing over the yellow lines to pass a bus in front of the Reitz Union. The University Police Department made an effort to pull over any car, motorcycle or scooter that crossed solid yellow lines to pass buses Wednesday. From 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. UPD officers spread out across campus on bicycles, motorcycles FORECAST TODAY SUNNY 75/48 FRIDAY SUNNY 79/50 and in cars to inform drivers about passing safety, UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel said. The detail's goal is to inform the drivers what they are doing is wrong, not ticket them, he said. "Our goal is education," Ettel said. "The majority of our contacts receive warnings." Another frequent violation, Ettel said, is when scooter and motorcycle drivers pass a stopped bus by driving into the bike lane. During the detail, Officer Will Sasser pulled over a Mazda van that drove past a barricade near Turlington Hall. When Sasser asked for identification the driver introduced himself as James Williams and told Sasser his driver's license was suspended. According to the UPD arrest report, when Sasser did a check on Williams, he found that Williams had a record of about 10 traffic violations. Williams was arrested, taken to the Alachua County Jail and charged with a third-degree felony for driving with a suspended license and being a habitual offender. -KATIE EMMETS SATURDAY PARTLY CLOUDY 80/54 SUNDAY THUNDER STORMS 67/36 MONDAY PARTLY CLOUDY 64/35 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" The Alligator strives to be accurate and clear in its news reports and editorials.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS FBI searches UF prof's office under suspicion of fraud By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Staff Writer tstewart@alligator org The FBI searched the office of UF professor Samim Anghaie for suspected fradulent grant propsals to NASA on Wednesday. Investigators showed up at the office in the Nuclear Science Building just before 8 a.m. and left around 3:30 p.m., said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. The search was part of an investigation being conducted by multiple federal agencies, according to a U.S. Attorney's Office news release. A search warrant alleges there is cause to believe that Anghaie's company, New Era Technology (NETECH), intentionally overpaid Anghaie while underpaying other employees and creating illegitimate employees that were paid money through the grants. "NETECH. divertedhundreds of thousands of dollars of illegally obtained government funds from their corporate bank account to their personal bank accounts," it stated. The warrant stated employees of the company used some of the money to buy land, a condominium and vehicles, including a 2007 BMW. The company received about $2.5 million in grants from NASA since 2000, according to the warrant. Anghaie is listed as the director/vice president of the company, according to the warrant. His wife, Sousan, is listed as the president. Their son Hamid is listed as the director. Their other son, Ali, is listed as an employee in some of the grants. The warrant stated that there is cause to believe the four of them violated federal laws with offenses including theft of public money, mail or wire fraud and laundering of monetary instruments. Orlando said, to his knowledge, no other UF employees are being investigated. Orlando said Anghaie, who earns a salary of $111,401.53 at UF, has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure when an employee is involved in an investigation of this nature. Anghaie has worked at UF since October of 1980, Orlando said. He said UF is cooperating with the investigation but referred further comment to the U.S. Attorney's Office, which did not return phone calls Wednesday. Officials at NASA and the FBI could not be reached for comment. Peaceful Paths, chiropractor's office destroyed in fire 0 THE BUILDING WAS A TOTAL LOSS. A Gainesville building burned to the ground early Wednesday morning, destroying the office of a chiropractic group and of the non-profit organization Peaceful Paths. Gainesville Police officers discovered the fire at 2100 NW 53rd Ave. at 1:30 a.m. while on routine patrol. Nobody was in the offices, and there were no injuries, said Carol Davis, spokeswoman for Gainesville Fire Rescue. WhenGFR arrived, flames were40 feethigh and the Peaceful Paths building had sustained significant damages. Firefighters focused on preventing the fire from spreading. Peaceful Paths is a non-profit organization that assists domestic violence victims. The fire also consumed a building that housed Physicians Group, LLC, but it did not spread to nearby apartments. Local "They were able to get it unNewS der control fairly quickly," Davis said. Trish White, case manager for Peaceful Paths, said that the organization will rebuild as soon as possible. She said services will lapse only about a week while the organization arranges a temporary office. People have offered money, supplies and even office space to help the organization deal with the loss.

This was one of the promotional stunts AFTERdark used to publicize its Christian show tonight at 8:30 in the O'Connell Center. The night will consist of a concert by Copeland, an alternative rock band from Florida, and a presentation from Joe White, a frequent inspirational speaker to the NFL and MLB, said Andrew Hanna, student director of the UF event. "He is one of the most incredible influential speakers of our time," Hanna said. Don Ford, president of AFTERdark, started the nationwide organization in October 2000. The event has been to over 100 college campuses across the U.S., and several hundred thousand students have been in attendance. "We just wanted to expose college students to the person of Jesus so they could decide if they felt like he was in any way relevant to their lives today," Ford said.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 5 ON CAMPUS Former Miss Fla. details her eating disorder struggle By REBECCA WEISS Alligator Contributing Writer A former Miss Florida and UF alumna spoke about her struggles with an eating disorder to about 30 students and faculty Wednesday night on the Plaza of the Americas. UF's first "Lights of Hope" candle-lighting ceremony was held in honor of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2009. People listened to speeches and stories from those who are or have been struggling and lit candles in memory of those who have passed away and in honor of those still fighting. Allison L. Kreiger, president and founder of H.O.P.E -Helping Other People Eat -as well as Miss Florida 2006, was the keynote speaker for the night's event and detailed her struggle with the disease and her road to recovery. "My eating disorder was nothing about me losing weight," she told the group. "I felt like I had lost control of my life and my feelings were transferred into the disorder." Kreiger said that as a young girl she was always in a competitive environment because she was a baton twirler and was constantly practicing. When high school came around, she became frustrated and realized that she wanted to be a "normal" kid with a social life. "I came home from the gym one day and I didn't mean to throw up, but I did, and it made me feel better," she said. "Eventually, I would only eat to get sick because it made "I felt like I had lost control of my life and my feelings were transferred into the disorder." Allison L. Kreiger H.O.P.E president and founder me feel better in my mind -it became an addiction." When Kreiger realized that she couldn't focus and that she had lost her endurance in the gym, she approached her parents and told them about her problem. She was disappointed, however, when they didn't know what to do about the situation. After a few months, she tried again and this time, they were prepared. "I was terrified that I wouldn't be around the next day," she said. "I realized how precious life was, and that was the pivotal point." Kreiger was taken to an outpatient facility to receive treatment. When she arrived at UF as a freshman, she went straight to the Student Health Care Center and began helping others. Her efforts grew and eventually became her platform for the Miss America competition, she said. "It's one of the best feelings even if it's just having a shoulder to cry on -to be that means of saving lives," she said. "I feel fortunate to still be around to fulfill that bigger purpose in life." After her speech, the group formed a circle and litpurple candles. "With each candle flame, we remember," said Dr. Lisa J. Merlo, assistant professor at UF's psychiatry department. "We light to guide us toward a better tomorrow." Once the candles were burning, guests had a chance to share their stories, or the story of someone they knew. The crowd was timid at first, but after sophomore Katie Popeil told her story, others were willing to as well. Popeil, who has had her disorder for about four years, said she's been in recovery for about six months. "Hearing Allison's story made me confident that I can achieve recovery and live the life I've wanted," she said. "If you're struggling, reach out. I waited a long time, and I'm having a harder time recovering because I was so wrapped up in it." FDS approves new drug promising thicker eyelashes 0 ONE-MONTH SUPPLY IS $120. By VICTORIA PHILLIPS Alligator Contributing Writer Have the prayers of short-lashed ladies everywhere finally been answered? A new FDA-approved prescription drug that claims to provide a visible difference in your lash length, color and thickness will soon be available to Gainesville residents. "It's as easy as wiping eyeliner on every day," said Dr. Miranda Whitmer a dermatologist at Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center. The drug is a variation of Lumigan, the company's glaucoma medication. Doctors found the solution was improving hair loss on glaucoma patient's lash line, and began testing Latisse. At this point, Allergan can't pinpoint exactly why the drug stimulates growth, but it believes the drug increases the amount of hair grown during the growth cycle, according to a blog by Scientific American. Close to 80 percent of people that used Latisse saw an increase in fullness, darkness and length by week 16, with a 106 percent increase in fullness alone, according to the product's Web site. The trick, however, is keeping up with the treatments. There is still debate on how often treatment should continue to maintain results, Whitmer said. One bottle is about $120 and comes with 60 applicators, or a 30-day supply. The application process is simple, she said. Before going to sleep each Student night place a drop of the soluLife tion onto an applicator, rubbing it at the base of your upper eyelashes. Lash extensions, a more traditional alternative to enhancing lashes, can cost anywhere from $20 to $50 and last about two weeks. They can cause damage to the lashes underneath, said Tara Andrisin, a physician's assistant for dermatology at Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center. UF freshman Christina Frick said she has been using fake eyelashes for dance performances since high school, and she spends around $12 for one tube of mascara. "For $2, I can deal with annoying eyelash glue," she said. "This drug may eventually be worth my money, but I'm pretty skeptical." With the hefty $120 price tag, UF sophomore Lisa Marx said she would only shell out the money for rapid results. "If I'm paying that much money, I should be able to see a difference in four minutes not four weeks," she said. Overall, the product is going to benefit those that want the look of makeup without having to take the extra time to put it on each day, Andrisin said. -i NI L INE IN THE HIN I ZIN CI / BIGI PAK / VINYL / MAGAZINE / 1IXSET NEW ALBUM MARCH 3 FEATURING "GET IN YSUR 1ISTS" 2009 Iitersope Reords.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 Editorial Don't Hate Amendment 1 a leap backward for civil rights s one of the mostprogressive cities in the U.S., Gainesville prides itself on being a place where people from all walks of life can reside without fear of discrimination. Americans across the nation descend upon our city with hopes of being treated fairly regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. In Gainesville, citizens do not have to worry about losing their jobs or homes because they identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Simply put, people are protected by local anti-discrimination laws to ensure that the quality of life is consistent for everyone that calls the city home. Sadly, the quality of life in Gainesville may change forever if we do not take action against a devious agenda. March 24th's city election ballot will feature a proposed amendment to the Gainesville City Charter titled, "Charter Amendment 1." If passed, the bill will eliminate the city's power to legally protect citizens from discrimination and instead hand that power over to the state. This legislation seeks to unfairly strip the rights of innumerable citizens -a gross misstep backward for a country that prides itself as open to "change." By saying "yes" to Charter Amendment 1, city law would no longer recognize Gainesville's Human Rights Ordinance and be forced to revert to the Florida Civil Rights Act. Unfortunately, there is a stark difference between the two pieces of legislation as the state act does not include protection for gender identity or sexual orientation. Furthermore, Gainesville would not have the opportunity to add additional protections in the future to ensure equal rights regarding veteran status, socio-economic status and political party affiliation. Existing special protections would be stripped the moment the act was passed. Gainesville is hardly alone in championing anti-discrimination protections for all of its residents. There are more than 100 other cities across the country who have adopted a progressive mentality to ensure that every citizen can lead a life without the fear of hate. If Gainesville loses its ability to provide a place to live free of inequality and discrimination, who is to say that the other cities won't soon face a similar fate? The issue at hand is not about whether you agree or disagree with the lifestyle choices of a critical portion of our population. Rather, you must ask yourself if you believe that all Americans should be able to enjoy the most basic of civil rights. The issue is not about "men in women's bathrooms," and it's not about the breadth of local government. Our city government has a responsibility to its citizens to protect them from unfair treatment. Gainesville has gone to great lengths to protect all its citizens from institutionalized hate and has extended protection to groups of people who face oppression from all angles. With the passage of this amendment, people who already live as second-class citizens would lose all legal recourse against discrimination -their livelihoods could be yanked out from under them, and all they could do is suck it up and move. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people must then fight even harder within a system that already considers them inferior. Such an example paints a bleak picture in the minds of the Editorial Board. We wonder how far-right groups can possibly rationalize such outlandish legislation when it clearly exudes overtones of sheer hate. Gainesville cannot be forced to take a step backward considering all of the progress that we've made. When people think of our city, they must be able to view it as a model for how equality can and will work anywhere in the country. If passed, Charter Amendment 1 would hinder the city's ability for growth as businesses, and students will have no choice but to go elsewhere. With the livelihoods of so many innocent people at stake, we implore you to take a strong stand against discrimination and vote "no" on Charter Amendment 1. a l l e independent floida Nicole Safker EDITOR Kristin jornsen MANAGING EDITOR Dan Seco OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Column A Is that a SPACE SHUTTLE crashed Definitely into those cooling not! towers? Ar Amendment will harm local businesses as anyone actually read Gainesville Charter Amendment 1? Or more importantly, has anyone actually read the ordinance that it will affect? Yes, the amendment will remove language explicitly prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. This essentially amounts to repealing the changes passed to the Gainesville Ordinance No. 051225 on Jan. 28, 2008. Johnathan Lott I etters@alIlIigator org Anyone who professes to be either gender "by verbal statement" will be legally entitled to use the restroom of his or her choice. While there are some transgendered people this would benefit, there are many people who would be made uncomIn other words, the amendment will make Gainesville fortable at the thought of anydiscrimination laws the same as everywhere else in Alaone being able to enter a ladies' room. This would hurt chua County. Anti-discrimination laws are a good thing, and most people, including the drafters of the amendment, agree that businesses should not discriminate based on gender identity. Unfortunately, the language of the ordinance is so broad that it would constitute an unjust encroachment into the rights of private business. The amendments passed in 2008 do not simply add gender identity to a list of prohibited reasons for discrimination. They also added a large section ( Section 8-69 (c) ) that concern "shared facilities" such as restrooms and locker rooms. A business cannot deny use of such a facility on the basis of gender identity unless the business provides "adequate facilities" to accommodate the person's gender identity. The ordinance then goes on to define unisex restrooms as an "adequate facility." In other words, businesses may be forced to build expensive new facilities in addition to existing men's and women's rooms. This is an unfair and economically businesses within the city limits. Amendment 1 is not about legalizing "discrimination based on. sexual identity," as the Alligator reported on Monday. First off, it's "gender identity." If businesses want to discriminate, they can easily move a few miles outside of the city limits. Many local businesses are already outside the city limits and thus it is "legal" to discriminate. Of course, the overwhelming majority of these businesses don't discriminate on sexual orientation or gender identity. If this happened, there would be pages of discrimination claims filling the pages of this newspaper. Notice their absence. I fully support laws which ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, but the Gainesville city ordinance goes beyond that to harm our local businesses in order to appear progressive. I say "appear" progressive because the city actually exempts itself from the ordinance. Vote for Amendment 1 on March 24. unfeasible assault on local businesses.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letter to the Editor Words taken out of context In Wednesday's article that covered President Bernie Machen's town hall forum, I was appalled to see that what I said was taken out of context in order to beef up a mediocre story. I would like for the readership of the Alligator to note that I fully support the administration in this time and completely understand that the administration is unable to know at this point what will happen next year. While I am worried that my program maybe cut, I am more worried that the UF student body will take what this writer said to be accurate. This town hall forum was open to the student body and gave Machen the ability to reach out to students and see what their concerns were, which is genuinely what happened. Had the reporter been listening to the forum and not circling the room like paparazzo, she would have noticed that. As for how my quote was taken out of context, I am ashamed of the quality of the Alligator's writing staff. I would call this article a facade of muckraking journalism, but I am afraid that this term would be too lenient on the writer. I implore the editors of the Alligator to invest more time in reading the articles presented to them by their staff. Not only will this raise the writing quality from poor to mediocre, but also change its image from being the tabloid with the crossword to being a respectable piece of journalism. Joshua Perry 3LS Column Technology has a stranglehold on population, mass media O the Colbert Report recently, there as a joke in which Stephen pretended it was 1997 and wheeled out an old dial-up modem, which he used to connect to America Online. And, just like that, I was nostalgic. How I missed that grating dial-up process and the frequent disconnections. But, through the nostalgia, as I surfed the Internet effortlessly on my fancy wireless laptop, I started thinking about just how far technology has come -and how weird the world will be to us 20 years from now. Being the raconteur that I am, maybe a story will help illustrate my point. A few days ago I was hanging out with a good friend of mine. We were just talking, joking about random things -pretty much the usual. Then we both got text messages. For about the next 15 minutes, we barely said a word as each of us got absorbed in sending and replying to several texts at once. And what's absolutely hilarious -what makes me laugh to no end -is that this is what, today, passes for two people hanging out. Remember the days before text messaging -before cell phones even -when in order to hang out people actually had to (weird, huh?) talk to each other. A person could get hit with a wave of social anxiety just thinking about it. I can't wait to see what things are like for the next generation or so. I fully expect children to invite their friends over after school and each of them plug into their very own virtual reality headset. One could be playing baseball, one at a concert (the thought of how strange music will be in the future, considering that in 50 short years we went from Sinatra to Nirvana, terrifies me) and another, assuming global warming leaves us with any water, could be jet-skiing. And this kind of intensive social interaction would be reserved only for the best of friends! Eric Chianese letters@alligator org The comedy of the future as some sort of introvert's paradise aside, let me say that I firmly believe that technology is strangling us all. As always, technological advances are about "could" and not "should." I mean, is there really anyone alive who thinks the iPod Shuffle was a good idea? Technology is increasingly cutting us off not only from the world but from one another. Today a person doesn't even have to leave his home to buy groceries. One can do all their "social" interaction on the Internet, if so inclined. We're becoming a society of pale vampires -and not the Edward Cullen type so praised on the message boards. &1tE(B LOOD UF CAMPUS MONDAY 2/23 -THURSDAY 3/5 SORORITIES & FRATERNITIES FACE OFF AT SPRINGe eREEK DRIVE CALL (352) 334-1000 FOR MORE SPECIFIC TIMES AND LOCATIONS LIFESOUTH'S CIVITAN DONOR CENTER, 1221 NORTHWEST 13TH STREET AND LIFESOUTH'S NEWBERRY DONOR CENTER, 4039 NEWBERRY ROAD Technology has, of course, done great things for the world. Medical advances have saved countless lives, and only a Tyler Durden-style Luddite would want to undo such things. But the fact remains that some advances of technology -generally in the field of mass communication -cause just as much harm, if not more, than they do good. I'm reminded of a fantastic scene from "Inherit the Wind" where Henry Drummond tells us that "Gentlemen, progress has never been a bargain. You've got to pay for it. Sometimes I think there's a man behind a counter who says, 'All right, you can have a telephone, but you'll have to give up privacy, the charm of distance. .Mister, you may conquer the air, but the birds will lose their wonder, and the clouds will smell of gasoline!"'

8, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 UF VOTERS UNITE Progress earns 8 Senate seats; Orange & Blue, Keg empty-handed ELECTION, from page 1 Johnson's father, Randy, R-Celebration, was a representative in the Florida House from 1998 to 2006. "We're very proud. Jordan has dedicated himself to the students," he said. Meanwhile, the losing parties stood dejectedly, shaking their heads. "This just shows what happens when the independent movement can't get on the same page when they're facing a behemoth," said Sen. Mark McShera, presidential candidate for the Orange & Blue Party. Meanwhile, Progress Party presidential candidate Ben Dictor took a drag on his cigar at the announcement of Unite's Executive win. "We demonstrated to the Student Body that an independent body can run and be victorious," he said, adding the party has made a name for itself. Current Student Body President Kevin Reilly shouted, high-fived, hugged and fist-pumped when Johnson was announced as his successor. "I was surprised. I was expecting a run-off," Reilly said. "I think I'm leaving Student Government in very good hands." Results for the ballot's referendum questions were also announced, including one initiative to deny SG funding to facilities that require use of biometric data, such as a hand scan, for entry. About 64 percent of students voted to have a tobacco-free campus, and about 68 percent supported creating a fund for UF's BabyGator program. Also, 88 percent voted in favor of changing Florida law to allow an Early Voting location on campus. The last day of campaigning involved a strong push from all parties involved. Many touted party signs between Turlington Plaza and Plaza of the Americas. When polls closed at 8 p.m., party members headed out to pop open a few beers and relax before meeting at the Orange & Brew around midnight to hear results. About 30 members of the Progress Party packed the outside patio of Tim and Terry's, the local pub known for its live music and gritty atmosphere. The air was thick with cigar smoke and live jazz music from inside. At least three cases of Pabst Blue Ribbon were ordered before the party headed over to congregate at the Orange & Brew. The mood was optimistic but cautious as candidates discussed their chances. "Whether or not we won the war just yet, I don't know, but we definitely beat the counter revolutionaries," the party's presidential candidate Ben Dictor said, wearing a maroon beret and leather Member's Only jacket. Meanwhile, the mood was celebratory at The Swamp Restaurant, the top floor of which was rented out by the Unite Party. About 75 party supporters attended, drinking and chatting about the election season Down the way, about 30 Orange & Blue Party supporters gathered at Gator City to hang out before heading over to the Orange & Brew around 10:30 p.m. Cheers of "Let's Go Gator" rang out from members of the Orange & Blue Party when the Unite Party arrived at the Orange & Brew around midnight, referring to their claim that the Unite Party and the Gator Party from last fall are one in the same. The Progress Party was the first to arrive around 10:45 p.m. occasionally launching into a deep baritone rendition of "Solidarity Forever." Most parties shelled out more than $5,000 for their campaigns. The Orange & Blue Party spent $5,204.50 and the Progress Party spent $5,152.35. The Unite Party surpassed both, spending $8,324.54, while the Keg Party, which only ran candidates for the executive ticket raised about $200. The night's beer tab was about $370 at the Orange & Brew. The Orange & Blue Party also dropped $720 on airing campaign ads against the Unite Party. McShera said he did not regret airing the ads. "The fact that Jordan Johnson doesn't think he has to follow Florida law is worth voters knowing," he said, referring to the ad in which Johnson is quoted during an Elections Commission meeting. Progress Party candidate Nick Mildebrath criticized the ad. "On every level the ad was crap," Mildebrath said. Johnson said he felt rewarded for running a clean campaign. "Nobody wants to hear you say bad things about somebody, especially when they're not true," he said. There have been about 40 elections complaints filed this campaign season. The last 15, filed Wednesday, will be discussed Friday. Orange & Blue party Sen. Sam Miorelli reads a copy of the election results outside the Reitz Union. The party did not win any seats. No decisions have been made in either college to cut undergrad programs NURSING, from page 1 cutting the college's undergraduate programs could save. The college had a budget of about $29 million in 2007-2008, he said. The College of Nursing, which had a budget of almost $13 million in 2007-2008, not including grants and private funds, has alsobeen shifting its focus to graduate education, said Tracy Wright, the college's spokeswoman. She said the college has not been planning to eliminate the programs, however, and she didn't know how much the move could save. The college has 394 graduate students and 340 undergraduates curU F rently enrolled.

Sounds pretty cheesy right? Danny Boyle's Mumbai fairytale "Slumdog Millionaire" embodies all of the heartwarming qualities of many rags-to-riches tales. But despite the obvious cliches that accompany any star-crossed love story, "Slumdog Millionaire" is a fully realized introspection on the human condition beset by poverty and thrown out into a cruel world. And although the road ; ,* to redemption is at times farfetcth e en of the journey is Boyle so fulfilling that this story of love and perseverance trumps any issue of believability. "Slumdog Millionaire" straddles two story arcs throughout the film, depicting the lead character Jamal's stint on India's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" while delving through the back story of the boy's troubled and violent childhood. A family life fractured by death and poverty leads Jamal and his brother Salim to grow up quickly in the slums of India. What is so clever about the film is the interweaving of the flashbacks with the real-time events surrounding the game show. Each question that Jamal answers on his way toward the 20 million rupee prize was known because of a chance encounter or random event from his past. Jamal is forced to reveal his reasoning behind each answer because at the film's start, he is in jail on suspicion forscheating on the game show. How can a poor, uneducated kid from the slums really know the answer to every question? The film's strength is in its engrossing story. Three sets of actors portray the leads in the film, depicting the evolution of the characters Jamal, Salim and Latika against the evolution of the city of Mumbai itself. While no one actor carries the film or delivers those singular lines that films go down in history for, the movie proceeds to entice and entertain. It seems fitting that a movie depicting the triumph of the human spirit over incredible odds would rely on an ensemble cast and a strong script to reach Oscar glory. "Slumdog Millionaire" won eight of the 10 Academy Awards it was nominated for Sunday, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. "Slumdog Millionaire" delivers on its fairytale promise, providing a two-hour escape into a world where "happily ever after" doesn't seem that far-fetched after all.

12, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 Girl Talk spins samples, shows STEPHANIE GRANADA + AVENUE WRITER For all the crazy onstage antics and dramatic performances, Gregg Gillis is a modest man. He makes no pretenses of living a high-profile rock-star life or being the coolest kid on the block. "When I'm home I just work on music or watch TV on the couch," he said. "When I perform, it's my weekend as much as anyone else's." He feels no need to include that his weekends, unlike most others', take him from his hometown of Pittsburgh to Paris, San Francisco and Spain, where he moves crowds of up to thousands of people into a frenzy. "People don't realize the level of safety and security measures taken before a show to prepare for craziness that will go down," he said. Gillis has been performing as Girl Talk for the past 10 years, but since 2006, with the release of "Night Ripper," Girl Talk's success caught on at an infectious rate. He credits the album's success with timing. At about that time, people were more familiar with the idea of remixing music, and media had become very interactive, he said. The taboos that were in place in the underground scene of sampling pop music were fading. "Before, there was this feeling that if I was sampling a Donnas song, I was pissing people off or going against their aesthetic," he said. "Now in the indie or underground scene it's to mix with Britne Girl Talk cam filled the area w mental music m ity. The media ca the album and stopped dancing "I knew it was ble, but I didn't k be so big," he saic For a year he h job as a biomedi playing gigs only 1-.1 Gillis when he had to ch "All of a sudde lining and sellin and getting offers rope," he said.

K Theatre, will be performed at the McGuire Pavilion Constans Theatre starting Friday and ending March 6. Student tickets cost $9. Altmeyer described it as "a story about the underbelly of the American dream." Young people go to college so they can learn to make money. "This play explores what it means to be driven by money," he said. The characters in the play, a group of ambitious real estate salesmen, are faced with two choices: make it big, whatever it takes, or get stepped on. "There's a thin line between good business practices and fraud," Altmeyer said. In Mamet's original play, the characters are middle-aged. Altmeyer made some adjustments "The kind of girl they'd normally pick up in a bar now has power over them," he said. One of the main characters is Richard Roma, the top-selling agent. Christopher Fahmie, who plays Roma, described him as a "take-the-jacket-off-your-back kinda guy -suave, fast-talking, and sleazy." He described the play as "unconventional, raw and desperate." To highlight the relevance of the play, the director mentioned some current events, including the subprime mortgage crisis, Enron and the corporate bailout. He also said there's something special about seeing a live event. "The actors and audience are breathing the same air," Altmeyer said. "You can't get that in a movie theater." I/ Facebook, BlackBerry makes cheating difficult ASHLEY ROSS In a world where more is better, monogamy can sometimes lead us down a boring path. With more than 50,000 students at UF, why only date one person? 0 Who wants to be stuck with only one make-out partner when you can have two, three or even four? We're in college, and it's the time in our life when hormones are at an all-time high, flying around University Avenue late at night seeking a drunken mate to stumble back to the dorms with us. And, hey, there's no problem with that. It's time to experience, to get out there and see what life has to offer. Lovers are easily comparable to a pair of 0 shoes. You have to try on a few pairs on before finding the perfect fit. However, while fooling around with two (or more) people at once may sound fun and liberating, it might not be so feasible. Sleeping and sneaking around used AVENUE WRITER to be so simple. George would go out with Sally on Thursday night for dinner at Dragonfly and then meet up with Sue at Swamp for a drink later that same night. And there were no problems. But now, Sally will write on George's wall as soon as she gets home to thank him for dinner, and this post will certainly show up on Sue's news feed -or /t's a s at least on one of her and gi friends', who will imno chance you mediately text Sue away with foo to let her know what more than on George has really been up to. I'm here to tell you that while it may be fun and extra-pleasurable to have a secondary sex buddy, you are not safe anywhere. It's a small world, boys and girls, and there's no chance you'll be able to get away with fooling around with more than one person without the other person -or people -finding out. With technology out of control, it's too quick and easy for someone to catch you and snap a picture on his or her BlackBerry without you even knowing. If you're familiar with the "Gossip Girl" TV show, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If not, I'm sure you can imagine. Simply touching the small of a girl's back for a quick second with a smile on your face mall world, boys can be captured by a r1s, and there's camera phone and ex'II be able to get ploited even easier via ling around with Facebook. e person 9 And while being /pcaught on camera and later online is what nobody hopes for, it's relatively effortless to get yourself out of one of these situations. "Oh that guy? Just a friend I know from Tutoring Zone. We were taking a shot in honor of being done with the class." This can quickly sum up and excuse a photo. The inquirer might still have his or her doubts, but for the most part, you'll be in the clear. What's even worse than being caught technologically, though, is being caught in person. Like I said, this small world doesn't keep you safe enough, and most on-the-spot excuses seem made up. Plus, if you do get caught in person, even a brilliant excuse won't hide the remorseful look on your face. So, the question remains: to cheat or not to cheat? My suggestion is to weigh the pros and cons. Chances are if you're even thinking about cheating or sneaking around behind someone's back, you probably don't care enough about him or her anyway, meaning that getting caught wouldn't be the end of the world. But if the person you might cheat on is worth something to you, don't screw it up (no pun intended), no matter how horny you may be. Trying out a bunch of different make-out partners certainly has its perks, but back to the shoes, there's nothing like a perfect fit. an, tfie awuentue' e e e 9 9 9 9

Sports THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Nelson's shutout leads to win vs. No. 6 Michigan mw I Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff UF pitcher Stacey Nelson throws a pitch during the Gators' 3-0 win against Baylor on Feb. 6. Nelson threw a shutout against No. 6 Michigan on Wednesday. 0 UF SCORED 4 RUNS IN THE FIRST TWO INNINGS. By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer a be rry@alIlIigator org After taking down the No. 6 team in the nation, Stacey Nelson felt like she was just getting started. With Nelson in the circle, the No. 2 UF softball team (13-2) held Michigan (12-4) scoreless on three hits while putting 4 quick runs on the board Wednesday afternoon in Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. Nelson (6-2) struck out nine batters on the day, but the senior ace felt like she could have kept pitching for quite some time after the final out. "I had an abnormal amount of energy before the game today, so I probably could have pitched four games," Nelson said. Nelson kept the Wolverines, who averaged nearly 4.5 runs per game before Wednesday, off the scoreboard in seven innings of work, but the Gators removed some of the pressure from Nelson early in the game by putting runs on the board. Tiffany DeFelice, who entered the game with only one RBI this season, drove in 2 runs with two outs in the bottom of the first on a double that flew just over the shortstop's glove into left field. "It felt good because I've been struggling a little bit lately," DeFelice said. "It felt kind of good to actually get my job done." UF coach Tim Walton said he is confident in the sophomore slugger to perform in the fifth spot in the order despite her inconsistent play at the plate early in the season. "If we're going to win a championship, it's going to be with Tiffany DeFelice in the five hole," Walton said. "I think that's important for me to maintain that consistency." After DeFelice drove in the Gators' first 2 runs in the first inning, center fielder Kim Waleszonia followed suit in the second. Michigan replaced starting pitcher Nikki Nemitz (7-2) with Jordan Taylor after just 1 1/3 innings, but Waleszonia singled up the middle to send home 2 more runs, putting SEE SOFT, PAGE 19 UF BASEBALL Grand slam powers Gators By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@alligator org Anything Eastern Michigan can do, UF can do better. After the Eagles launched a two-out grand slam off Gators starter Anthony DeSclafani in the third inning, UF right fielder Riley Cooper blasted one of his own to the parking lot behind left field on the first pitch from reliever Corey Chaffins. Cooper crushed the ball, and it didn't take long for him to realize it was a home run. "(I knew) as soon as I hit it," Cooper said. The grand slam from Cooper -UF's first since Cole Figureoa hit one in Miami on March 2 last season -put the Gators up 8-4 and carried them all the way to their 17-6 victory Wednesday night at McKethan Stadium. Things looked bleak for the No. 24 Gators (5-0) after the Eagles' grand slam. After scoring 4 runs in the first inning and having its first five batters get hits, UF's bats went cold. They didn't tally a hit in the second, third or fourth inning. "This year, he's kind of had a fresh start from the beginning, and he's earned his way into the lineup earlier." Kevin O'Sullivan UF baseball coach But on a chilly night at McKethan Stadium, Cooper's shot heated the whole team up -UF scored 7 more runs in the sixth inning, and catcher Buddy Munroe had a 3-run homer of his own. What looked like it could be a close game became a blowout very quickly. Compared to last season, when Cooper hit just .207 and had 25 of his 58 at-bats SEE BASE, PAGE 19 UF doesn't merit Tourney spot he Gators will get good news on March 15. After a one-year hiatus, they'll be back in the NCAA Tournament. The UF logo will flash on the television screen, and the players and coaching staff will be able to breathe a sigh of relief. Their reputation as a prominent basketball program will be back. But they don't deserve it. Is it because of their effort? No. Their effort has improved in the past year, and the players are taking losses harder than they did last season. They should be praised for that. Is it because the Southeastern Conference is as weak as it has been in years? Not entirely, no. A weak conference actually helps the Gators get in, and no team should be judged negatively just because its conference -which is normally among the elite -is having an off year. What about that lack of size that will surely Brian Steele lead to them getSteele-ing Bases ting dominated bsteele@alligator org by bigger, stronger teams in the tourney? No again. Plenty of shooter-heavy teams have made it far based on that ability alone. It's because they aren't good enough. They've come close to being good enough -on several occasions -but whatever that proverbial sports hump is, this team can't get over it. They can't figure out how to take the next step, at least not as a whole.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 19 DeSclafani gives up 5 earned runs, strikes out four in first college game BASE, from page 18 end in strikeouts, he's performing much better for the team. "He's in the flow of the team a lot better," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "This year, he's kind of had a fresh start from the beginning, and he's earned his way into the lineup earlier." The team had a season-high 18 hits by the time the last out was made. The Gators are averaging 9.4 runs and 11.8 hits per game after their first week of the year. After having no home runs coming into the night, UF ended the evening with three. Senior left fielder Avery Barnes took one out of the park in the first at-bat of the game. It was the Gators' first leadoff homer since Gavin Dickey hit one against South Carolina on March 25, 2006. O'Sullivan emptied the bench by the end of the night: Fifteen Gators had a chance at the plate. The UF pitching staff also had six pitchers get some experience Wednesday night. "We got a lot of guys on the mound. We got a lot of guys to get some at-bats," O'Sullivan said. "A lot of the youngsters got their feet wet." The most important experience might have gone to DeSclafani. It took three pitches for him to register his first career strikeout, but the rest of the freshman's night wasn't nearly as easy. DeSclafani came out after the third inning having allowed 5 earned runs. He struck out four and walked one in his college debut. Reliever Kevin Chapman (1-0, 0.00 ERA), who pitched the fourth and fifth innings, earned the victory for the Gators and got the game ball. "He did a really, really nice job for us, settled things down in the middle innings," O'Sullivan said. "That's what you need in games like this." UF right fielder Riley Cooper takes a lead off second base during the Gators' 6-3 win against Louisville on Friday at McKethan Stadium. Cooper hit a grand slam Wednesday against Eastern Michigan. PGA TOUR Woods back in form after injury THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MARANA, Ariz. -Tiger Woods said he was ready to go after eight months away from golf. Was he ever. Woods ended his 253-day break from competition Wednesday with a spectacular start at the Accenture Match Play Championship, going birdieeagle to build a quick lead in his opening match against an overwhelmed Brendan Jones. Woods poured it on late, eagling the par-5 13th hole to go 4 up with five holes to play. Jones had little chance on a day when Woods was as hot as the desert sun. The world's No. 1 player said he looked forward to the rush of competition, something he had not experienced since he won the U.S. Open in a playoff June 16 on one good leg. He had season-ending surgery on his left knee a week later. Fans packed into the bleachers around the first tee, with more lined up behind the ropes all the way to the green, and the cheer when Woods walked onto the tee could be heard all the way down the fairway. Woods backed off his tee shot, and without much expression, belted a fairway metal down the right side of the fairway. "You are back!" one spectator shouted. From 167 yards, Woods hit an 8-iron toward the middle of the green that caught a ridge and stopped 5 feet from the hole, which he converted for birdie to go 1 up. The par-5 second was even better, as Woods posed over his second shot and offered a gentle fist pump when he stopped 4 feet from the hole. He never had to make his eagle putt when Jones settled for par. So much for the rust -at least early. Woods found the bunker on the par-3 third, the ball on a slight downslope, leaving him no chance to get it close. He wound up with a bogey to halve the hole and didn't look nearly as crisp the rest of the front nine. Jones cut into the lead when Woods came up short of the seventh green and made birdie, then Woods answered with a 6-foot birdie on the eighth. He was 2 up heading to the back nine. The gallery hustled through the desert to watch WoodsE every shot, missing some entertaining golf around the rest of Dove Mountain. Three days after Phil Mickelson blew a lead and rallied to win at Riviera, he did it again. Lefty was 4 up with five holes to play when former U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera won the next four holes -three of those with birdies -to force overtime. Mickelson won on the 19th hole. Anthony Kim never lost a hole against Lin WenTang, beating him 7 and 5. Camilo Villegas had the shortest day of work at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, hammering Rod Pampling of Australia, 7 and 6. Trevor Immelman got off to the best start, holing out with a 9-iron for eagle on the opening hole. But the Masters champion wound up losing when Shingo Katayama fired off three birdies and an eagle on the back nine, winning 3 and 2. That was the lesson for Woods at the Match Play -the finish is always more important than the start. Gators' win restores confidence after weekend loss to No. 3 Washington to produce at the plate against Nelson. Even when the Wolverines threatened to score in the sixth inning, the Gators took care of business in the field. With Michigan's Teddi Ewing in scoring position, Molly Bausher singled to right field, but Kelsey Bruder fired the ball in to catcher Kristina Hilberth, ending the inning and preserving the shutout. Softball "I tried to tell myself before that batter came up, 'Don't let them score,' and I let them get a hit," Nelson said. "So when your teammate can pick you up like that, it really feels good as a pitcher." By taking down a highly ranked opponent with relative ease, the Gators removed some of the lingering doubts about the team after it fell to No. 3 Washington on Friday in Palm Springs, Calif. "After all the ups and downs that we faced in California, to be able to come out and still prove that we still can win was good," Nelson said. BRIANfrom page 18 the nation, but he plays for a team with role players who are asked to be starters. "We actually were outplaying them for a good portion of the game," freshman guard Erving Walker said after UF's 81-75 loss at LSU, the most recent example of the team not having what it takes to be a tournament team. That's the problem. Walker's right. The Gators did outplay the Tigers for most of the game, and they very well could have won the game. Instead, they looked like a team that doesn't know how to win in the last 10 minutes. They don't understand how to win a "big game," the game that makes Joe Schmo look up at his TV the next morning while scarfing down Cheerios and watching SportsCenter and say, "Nice win, Florida." That hasn't happened in almost two years now. I don't know why this is, and I'm not in the locker room or practice facility to know the truth. What I do know, however, is that this team will make the tournament based on its reputation, and they'll lose in the opening weekend because they aren't deserving of that reputation. There is always something new that it isn't getting. Whether it's defensive intensity, focus in practice or, now, what qualifies as a good shot, this team has not proven it can put the complete package together with a nice bow on top. And teams in the NCAA Tournament shouldn't be given bids without proving this. "We've played at Florida State, Kentucky, Tennessee," Walker said. "We're not going to use (lack of experience) as an excuse." Walker is right again. Whether it's a lack of experience or anything else, there are no more reasons for not taking the next step. The reality is, though, that staircase still looks pretty long to the Gators. SOFT, from page 18 UF up 4-0 after two innings. After giving up 2 quick runs, Taylor gave up no runs and only allowed one hit the rest of the game, but Michigan was not able
