Senators tout



transparency


* SENATORS VOTED TO PUT
RECORDS ONLINE.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Student Government senators
are leaving nothing to the imagi-
nation.
The Student Government bud-
get and Senate voting and atten-
dance records will be available on-
line in three to four weeks.
Senators unanimously passed
two bills that would place the re-
cords online during Tuesday's
meeting.
Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader
for the Student Alliance party, said
these bills will help students make
informed decisions in SG and have
a better idea about what their mon-
ey goes toward.
"I'm really happy that the Sen-
ate is choosing to go in this direc-
tion," Ossip said.
Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers
said he sees no reason why these
records should not be readily
available to students.


"I personally am very proud of
how I voted in the past, and I think
most people are," Meyers said.
He agreed with Ossip that it is
important for students to be able
to track where their fees are going
in SG.
"Every student contributes to
our $14.4 million budget, and it's
important that students have their
say," Meyers said.
As the Feb.
23 and Feb. 24
SG elections ap-
proach, sena-
tors also passed
resolutions en-
t couraging stu-
dents to vote and
Gossip promoting more
sustainable elec-
tion campaigns.
A resolution is a piece of leg-
islation that states the opinions of
senators without taking action.
The sustainability resolution
comes in the wake of the distribu-
tion of fliers critical of the Unite
Party on fraternity and soror-
ity rows and on the Plaza of the
Americas last week.


STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Ballot questions explained


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

During next week's Student Government
elections, students will have the opportu-
nity to answer three referendum questions
while they are at the polls.
Two of the three questions revolve around
a potential student fee that would help fund
the renovation of the Reitz Union.
The first question asks if there should be
a student fee to fund the Reitz Union re-
pairs.
The second question asks if the fee should
also fund an expansion of the union.
The final referendum question asks stu-
dents if UF should join the Workers Rights


Consortium, which would ensure UF and
Gator apparel is not made in sweatshops.
"A referendum is the perfect way
to hear exactly what the students
want."
Ashton Charles
Senate President

Senate President Ashton Charles, who
represents the Unite Party, said each of the
referendum questions on the ballot is im-
portant for students to answer.
"A referendum is the perfect way to hear
exactly what the students want," Charles

Student goes green


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

For Lance Griffin, a theater
senior at UF, shopping for eco-
friendly clothes was too much of a
hassle.
It seemed every store he went to
offered the same closet full of dis-
appointment.
"I'd walk into a clothing store,
and they would usually have a rack
toward the back... and a lot of the
clothes were either forest green or


had giant recycling symbols," he
said.
Griffin developed a natural solu-
tion: He created a company offering
a wider selection of environmen-
tally friendly
Spotlight on the clothing.
Swamp Griffin's
company,
Breathe Smile Love, was launched
four months ago and offers those

Finance club holds flash mob


to promote poker tournament


seven H. neys / Ailgaior siarr
Kim Crofford and Jackie Arellano dance on Turlington Plaza Tuesday
with a flash mob to promote a poker tournament fundraiser.


By ERICA COOK
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 20 students put on their poker faces and
danced to Lady Gaga in Turlington Plaza Tuesday
afternoon.
They broke it down for passing students dur-
ing two dance performances, which each lasted
about five minutes and were part of a flash mob
sponsored by the Student Finance Group, an or-
ganization that teaches students from any major
about how to invest and save money and find in-
ternships.
Through its dance, the group hoped to promote
its poker tournament at Beef O' Brady's on Thurs-
day at 8 p.m., said Bastian Bockenhuser, the flash
mob's coordinator.
The tournament will raise money for the Stu-
dent Finance Group's bus trip to Disney World at
the end of April, Bockenhuser said.
The trip will cost about $800, but the group has
already raised about $300 from member dues and
past events, he said.
"We hope that the poker tournament will help
us raise the remaining money to go on our trip,"
Bockenhuser said.


The poker tournament costs $10 to enter, and
anyone can participate.
Students who go on the trip will use free Dis-
ney tickets earned from participating in a Day of
Difference on March 26. For the Day of Difference,
volunteers will reach out to local elementary
school students and teach them about business
and economics.
"We hope that the poker tournament will
help us raise the remaining money to go
on our trip."
Bastian Bockenhuser
the flash mob's coordinator

The students who performed in Turlington Pla-
za had a slightly different mission.
Three of them wore life-size playing card cut-
outs, while others passed out playing cards adver-
tising the tournament.
Jackie Arellano, a member of the Student Fi-
nance Group, said she was not nervous about
dancing in the middle of Turlington Plaza.
"We wanted to promote unity and harmony
within the group," Arellano said.


Speaker promotes homeless 'adoption' program on tour


* HE WILL BE SPEAKING
TODAY AT 6 P.M.

By NATHAN BEAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Wood paneling, shag carpet and
a plastic pantry frame the interior of
the van-turned-home. To some, the
1994 Ford Econoline is a mere vehi-
cle, but to some homeless people in
Florida, it is a beacon of hope.


From his van, James Bamett,
24 is introducing Adopt-A-Jesus,
a homeless adoption program, to
Gainesville.
"The idea behind Adopt-A-Jesus
is simple," Bamett said. "One group
in the community finds a home-
less person in need and helps them
out."
Bamett is traveling on a cross-
country speaking tour for the next
year and is speaking at the Wesley
Foundation today at 6 p.m.


The program is one way Bamett
invites people to get involved in
their community.
Those who "adopt" a homeless
person are asked
Around to invest in that
Gainesville person's life over
meals, conver-
sations and basic provision of their
needs.
"It really isn't that complicated,"
Bamett said. "There is no law on
how a community is supposed to


love someone."
Bamett has developed a pro-
cess for choosing the homeless in
the program. He chooses homeless
people who he finds would best fit
into the program and invites them
to be adopted people who are de-
termined to better their lives and are
unlikely to get in trouble with law.
Those who are interested go through
a brief interview process, and those
accepted are offered for adoption at
the places he speaks.


Sam Shepherd, 20, adopted a
homeless man with his Bible study.
"It's great," Shepherd said.
"We've already been out to lunch
with him, and it's been surprising.
I always thought things like this
would be hard, but if anything, it's
taught me that people are people."
As Bamett continues his speak-
ing tour, he wants to be clear about
one thing.
"It comes down to community,
not convenience," he said.

Author speaks about Islam


Danica spears/ Alligator
John Esposito, author and professor of Islamic Studies and International Affairs
at Georgetown University, lectures to a crowd in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom.


By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writer
Islam-American relations have not improved
since Sept. 11, and they are only getting worse,
said John Esposito during a speech Tuesday
night at the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom.
Unless government officials make drastic
changes to U.S. foreign policy, a peaceful solu-
tion between Islamic nations and America will
not come for a long time, said Esposito, an author
and Georgetown professor.
He spoke to a crowd of about 250 students
and addressed whether Islam represents a threat
to the United States.
"Islam is no more a threat than any main-
stream religion is a threat," he said.
Esposito addressed topics such as Sept. 11,
U.S. foreign policy and media perceptions of Is-
lam.
The prevailing U.S. perceptions of Islam are
unfairly skewed because Sept. 11 caused some


Americans to judge all Muslims based on the ac-
tions of a few extremists, he said.
This is akin to judging all Catholics by the
Spanish Inquisition, Esposito said.
"All religions have a transcendent side and a
dark side," he said. "Any religion can be trans-
lated darkly."
Only 7 percent of worldwide Muslims are
potential extremists, he said, but unless the U.S.
changes its policies toward Islamic countries, the
number of potential extremists could increase.
The problems created by the
On wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are
Campus persisting and getting worse, he
said.
The American forces in the Middle East are
inciting anti-American sentiment instead of win-
ning the hearts and minds of Muslims, Esposito
said.
"American military presence needs to be
pulled out as fast as it can occur," he said.
Accent paid Esposito $8,500 for the lecture.

* PRESENTERS EXPRESSED
NEED FOR COMMUNITY AID
IN PREVENTING CRIME.

By ALLYSON FOX
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville Police Department
Chief Tony Jones wants city resi-
dents to understand a couple of
things.
First, Jones wants Gainesville
residents to know they play a
critical role in preventing crime.
Secondly, Jones wants local
citizens to know that as chief
he promises to do everything
in his power to reduce crime in
Gainesville.
The Gainesville Police Depart-
ment addressed its recent reorga-
nization and changes it has made
in order to better serve the com-
munity.
About a dozen citizens attend-
ed the meeting Tuesday evening
at the Gainesville Police 2010 pre-
sentation, held at the Westside
Park recreation center.
"I knew change was needed at
GPD," Jones said.
Local Jones added that
News sergeants will now
work as a team with
the police officers.
Previously, the sergeants were
on different shifts.
"We've got to work in partner-
ship," Jones said.
In addition, GPD is anticipat-
ing budget cuts, so it needs an
increasing amount of community
aid in preventing crime.
Currently, GPD has a class for
volunteers called the Citizen's
Academy, which is designed to
engage residents in their com-
munity.
"The end result is volunteers
will work in the police depart-
ment," said Capt. Ed Book.
The volunteers will use skills
they already have in order to
serve their community. Tasks
will require grant-writing and
clerical skills.
GPD hopes that eventually
citizens on patrol will be able
to identify and prevent crimes,
Book said.
Barbara Ruth, Stephen Foster
Neighborhood Association presi-
dent, said she decided to attend
the presentation to have a better
understanding of GPD's chang-
es.
"It seems like a very positive
thing is happening," Ruth said. "I
think the new chief is doing some
good things."

Editorial

Frivolous Fliers

SG should stop wasteful

distribution of fliers
The Editorial Board always loves when it gets the
chance to call Student Government out on yet an-
other thing it's done that is stupid and completely
useless.
And today is certainly no different than any other oc-
casion.
We couldn't help but laugh at the Student Senate's
newest installment of ridiculous resolutions with no point
whatsoever.
For all of you who don't know what that is, have no
fear: A resolution is the Senate's official opinion on some-
thing.
That's right, it does absolutely nothing.
And on a side note, stop passing resolutions. They don't
do anything, and contrary to popular belief, no one cares
what your opinion is.
Additionally, half the things you make resolutions
about you have absolutely no control over. (The resolution
that advocated of a two-state solution in the Gaza conflict
anyone?
If the United Nations can't even help, UF's SG certainly
won't do anything.)
But seriously, you guys really passed a resolution talk-
ing about possible methods of campaigning in a sustain-
able way?
We mean, we get it; it was obviously a dig from both
parties that were made at the other parties because of last
week's mysterious flier incident.
For those of you who don't follow our SG election cov-
erage religiously, we'll give you a summary: Fliers with
the Unite Party symbol and the word "obey?" written
below the Unite symbol, which mocked some of Unite's
brainless drones, were placed on cars on Fraternity and
Sorority rows. Regardless of who made the fliers and who
put them on the cars, when it comes down to it, all of you
are being wasteful.
Just take a short stroll along campus, and you'll defi-
nitely see that a vast majority of your beloved fliers with
your candidates' mugs on them wind up in trashcans or
on the ground.
That doesn't seem very sustainable to us.
Furthermore, you all just wasted even more paper writ-
ing this stupid resolution and having a hundred copies
made of it so you and your "frienemies" are able to discuss
it and vote on it.
That doesn't seem very sustainable either.
So instead of using your pretty, glossy paper, make
some signs to hang in Turlington Plaza.
And if you insist on keeping the fliers, take a page from
the Alligator's book and use recycled paper or consider
handing out those fliers near a recycling bin so people can
throw them in there instead of on the ground when they
inevitably decide not to read them.
That way, when students are done pretending to look
at them so you'll leave them alone, they can throw them in
there instead of the trashcans.
We get that recycled paper isn't the prettiest and is even
a little dingy, but it works for us.
After all, more people are reading this editorial than
your flier right now.

Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


Column

America should focus on education


he United States is a country that, while undoubted-
ly a strong and immensely powerful leader in many
areas of global society, faces several serious issues
as it pushes forward into the future. Beyond issues such
as ongoing wars, steady unemployment and reality TV
shows giving birth to other, far worse reality TV shows,
one specific issue rises above the rest in its level of impor-
tance and the amount of immediate action we must take
to combat its potential effects. This issue is a growing ig-
norance by a majority of our population toward confront-
ing and solving the major problems and questions facing
our nation today. This ignorance is being supported by an
overall lack of resolve and patience, partisan bickering and
a tendency for the national consciousness to be distracted
and concerned with issues of far lesser importance.
It arises from the materialistic and media-driven cul-
ture we live in, a culture created from the 24-hour news
cycle and the ever-expanding reach of technology. It is de-
fined and enforced by an invasive media presence, social
networking sites and an obsessive fascination with celeb-
rity and popular culture. Through the advancements and
abuse of technology, we have created another realm into
which people can immerse themselves and forget about
the real problems that face the world. It is too alarmist to
say that no one pays attention to the dire issues and prob-
lems, such as global warming, the wars in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan and international economic malaise. There are
obviously a veritable army of experts who are handling
these matters, but I feel that we should engage topics of
national importance on an individual level and not be-
come lost in our daily lives.
However, a growing majority of Americans are slip-
ping into an electronically induced "social coma," which
has taken away their eyes, ears and ability to think for


themselves. News outlets regulate
and disperse news, but too often
they focus on the scandal, the sen-
sational or anything that brings
in the ratings. Somewhere Tiger
Woods is nodding his head. In con-
Joshua Lee sumer-driven America, the truth is
letters@alligator org slimmed down, parceled out in five-
minute news blocks and drowned
out among biased reports from all sides.
And while the Internet has brought an unprecedented
amount of information to people's fingertips, social net-
working sites, which receive traffic in the millions each
day, have allowed people to create a world of their own
while forsaking real issues that are right outside their
front door. Time and energy is being lost on these endeav-
ors as the minutiae of daily life have now gained this over-
inflated sense of appeal and worth. I miss the days when I
didn't know what my high school teacher thought of Ava-
tar or what type of animal my friend found wandering on
his virtual farm. We must look past the events of our own
lives and form a greater coalition to solve the great prob-
lems of our age.
This social coma that has overtaken so many can only
be lifted, in my opinion, through greater funding toward
proper education of the youth; more emphasis on relevant
areas of life, such as international relations or national
governance; and a greater focus on the true reality of our
increasingly precarious situation as a global leader in a
dangerous world. Will all of these things be achieved in
the near future and allow for this veil to be lifted? Accord-
ing to the Facebook poll I just completed, they will not.

Letters to the Editor
Letter about Student Alliance party's
name failed to mention Unite's history
Ryan Scott's letter to the editor Tuesday
stated that "as much as changing the name
and logo of a party can be aesthetically pleas-
ing, it doesn't hide the fact that the party is Or-
ange and Blue 2.0."
So, he's basically saying that the Student
Alliance party changed its name to cover up
some former indiscretion in hopes that no one
would notice, right? That sounds really famil-
iar.
Oh, wait. Remember those e-mails between
top Gator Party officials that talked about how
to keep the Orange and Blue Party from get-
ting certain Senate appointments and commit-
tee assignments?
It turns out the Gator Party was so un-
happy about those e-mails being leaked that it
tried to steal all the Alligator newspapers that
morning to prevent the student body from
reading about it. That was followed up with a
bombardment of anti-Orange and Blue Party
fliers titled "Lies," for which it subsequently
apologized.
It's no surprise that the semester after that
politically damaging scandal, the Gator Party
changed its name to the Unite Party. So, I find
it funny that Student Alliance party is being
unjustly accused of something the Unite/
Gator Party has actually done fairly recently
because that happened only a little over a year


ago. I guess some people are quick to forget.

Unite should stop lashing out at critics
Why does the Unite Party get so outraged
whenever it is criticized?
Most people would agree with the fairly
expressed criticism of the Unite Party.
It takes thousands in student money for
personal perks like student-subsidized meal
cards, parking decals and cell phone plans.
It rushed to impose a big Reitz Union fee
(not covered by Bright Futures) on every stu-
dent without telling anyone the total cost of
the proposal or how long it will last.
It completely dropped the ball on protect-
ing Bright Futures, putting its faith in week-
end trips to Tallahassee (totally fruitless) and
in paying an inept lobbyist (who evidently
spends more time working for his other clients
in the insurance industry than for us).
Yet whenever someone calls out the Unite
Party with reasonable criticism, it sends out its
people to personally attack anybody who dis-
agrees with them. In the past few days, it has
said that its opponents want the Reitz Union
to crumble (when in fact all its opponents dis-
agreed with was a massive fee) and even com-
pared its political rivals to serial killers.
This is America. While the Unite Party
may feel threatened by those who disagree,


it should at least tone down its absurd, over-
blown rhetoric and stop lashing out at its op-
ponents.

Student Body candidate broke regulation
I am fairly new to Student Government,
having served as a student senator represent-
ing Beaty Towers for merely a semester. Yet
I've taken it upon myself to learn the necessary
rules and regulations when it comes to elec-
tions and campaigning. Evidently, Ben Cava-
taro has not. A couple days ago, Ben Cavataro
went door-to-door in The Estates apartment
complex. Going door-to-door is not only an
inconvenience to those who live in the com-
plexes, but it is also a clear violation of election
codes. Ben Cavataro should know this. Such a
blatant disregard for the rules is probably why
he was recommended for disqualification by
the Election Commission when he first ran for
office. Anyone who chronically violates the
rules that guarantee the fairness of our demo-
cratic process, as Ben Cavataro did, should not
be running for office.
How could someone with no regard for the
political process be running for Student Body
president? I am deeply troubled by Cavataro
and his party's disregard for these essential
rules. I was under the impression that Cava-
taro was an experienced former senator. Ap-


parently, he has been out of the Senate so long
that he has forgotten how SG operates. Who-
ever wins this election should win it fairly by
following the rules, not by cheating.

Editorial misrepresented demonstration
The "Fear Factor" editorial in Monday's
Alligator labeled the anti-abortion Genocide
Awareness Project in the headline as "anti-
choice ... ineffective, distasteful".
Although the large photographs are un-
pleasant to view, the project is very effective
at portraying the distasteful choice of abortion.
Yes, abortion is legal in America today, just
as slavery was legal in the United States and
the Holocaust was legal in Hitler's Germany.
The "bloody photographs of abortions gone
wrong" (quite a redundant phrase) are accu-
rate images of the victims of typical abortions,
and they frequently change viewers' minds.
For proof, visit AbortionNo.org and click on
Changed Minds/Abortion Regrets Testimo-
nies. While other bloody medical procedures
are performed to heal and extend lives, every
abortion is performed to harm and end the life
of an unborn baby.

Guest column

Student Alliance party represents necessary change in politics


/ Tt's time." That simple phrase means more than just a
Great video produced by the Student Alliance party.
It represents a fundamental change from politics as
usual in Student Government. When 80 percent of students
do not vote in SG elections, it's not hard to wonder why they
feel SG is out of touch at best and disingenuous at worst
when it comes to hearing student voices.
It's time for students to receive real information about
the proposed Reitz Union fee. This fee will not be covered
by Bright Futures or Florida Prepaid. This fee is being forced
upon students in the middle of the worst economic reces-
sion since the Great Depression. This fee is being imposed
for an uncertain and undisclosed amount of time. The Unite
Party and the Reitz Union Board of Managers (composed of
Unite Party appointees) wholeheartedly endorse and sup-
port reaching into your wallet when other sources of fund-
ing, such as Florida's Capital Improvements Trust Fund, are
available. Alarmingly, the Unite Party is actively promoting
confusion about the facts of the fee. They claim the fee is for


Rafael A. Yaniz $42.5 million in "repairs" to the Reitz
Speaking Out Union while quietly sneaking in that
Speaking Out
they want to construct a more than $80
million dollar expansion to the Reitz
Union. That adds up to more than $120 million they expect
students to pay for at the end of the day.
The Student Alliance party believes that by enacting sim-
ple waste-cutting measures in the SG budget, and by reach-
ing out to alternative sources of funding, we can pay for
the repairs to the Reitz Union at no additional student cost.
Reaching into students' wallets as the first course of action
is unacceptable and just plain wrong, especially in our tough
economic times. In addition to redirecting mismanaged funds
from the SG budget, the Student Alliance party will work with
the University Athletics Association and prominent alumni to
increase student organization space in the Reitz Union with-
out an egregious fee being imposed on the Student Body. One
proposal from the Student Alliance party involves moving
the Reitz Union Hotel to the half-constructed building across


from the stadium on University Avenue. This relocation will
free up two floors' worth of space in the current Reitz Union
while maintaining the service of the hotel, increasing revenues
for the union and SG. The Unite Party and the current admin-
istration have called imposing this unnecessary fee increase
and expansion project their "legacy." But let me be clear: The
only "legacy" this fee increase will leave is a legacy of debt.
It's time for SG to work on behalf of students and student
organizations. Student Alliance party has more than 70 mean-
ingful and well-explained ideas on its platform. You can visit
www.ufstudentalliance.com to learn about how we plan on
protecting your wallet, protecting your Bright Futures and
giving student organizations the ability to meaningfully in-
crease their budgets. At the end of the day, your vote does
matter, and you do have a choice. You can stand by as more
money is taken out of your pocket, or you can take two min-
utes on Feb. 23 or 24 to make your voice heard in SG.
Rafael A. Yaniz is the the Student Alliance candidate for Stu-
dent Body treasurer.

Student scarfs five


pounds of ice cream


By EMILY MORROW
Alligator Writer
Some brought their own
spoons, some brought hot water,
but they all brought an appetite.
Fifteen students represent-
ing different UF organizations
showed up at The Caffeine Bar
at Ben & Jerry's to compete in the
first Vermonster Challenge Tues-
day night in front of a crowd of
more than 300.
The participants raced to be
the first to finish Ben & Jerry's
Vermonster a 14,000-calorie ice
cream creation with 20 scoops
of ice cream, four bananas, one
brownie, 10 scoops of nuts and
eight scoops of toppings, all
topped with whipped cream.
The rules were simple: Finish
all of the ice cream, and if you
throw up, you're out.


Sigma Phi Epsilon's Kurt
Gielow was victorious Tuesday
evening, finishing his five pounds
of ice cream in about 13 minutes.
Contestants had different strat-
egies to prepare for the eat-a-thon.
About five said they starved them-
selves and one said he ate Chinese
before competing.
The competitors from TriGa-
tors and UF Wrestling club were
the only other two contestants to
finish their ice cream, placing sec-
ond and third respectively. Both
received $20 gift cards to Ben &
Jerry's.
The winning organization re-
ceived a trophy and $250 from
Ben & Jerry's.
Ben & Jerry's gave Gielow a
$50 gift card for conquering The
Vermonster in the fastest time.
At least five competitors were
disqualified for throwing up.

UF study will determine if compound helps older adults


ETHE COMPOUND IS FOUND IN WINE.

By SARAH JACKSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
A new study by UF researchers is testing
to see if resveratrol, a compound commonly
found in red grapes, produces benefits in old-
er adults.


The purpose of RIPE Trial, Resveratrol for
Improved Performance in the Elderly Trial,
is to see if the compound is safe for humans
to consume, said Todd Manini, Ph.D. and co-
prinicipal investigator of the study.
"It's a powder compound, similar to vi-
tamins that you would find in a drug store,"
Manini said.
Resveratrol is an antioxidant thought to
rescue adults from the impairments of old age,


he said. The compound may help adults re-
duce their fatigue and improve their memory.
In previous studies, scientists found the
compound was safe for
UF animals and improved their
Research memory. The trial will moni-
tor participants' memories
with MRI scans to see how the blood is redis-
tributed after three months, he said.
If the compound helps cells produce more


energy, it may help adults have a stronger
memory, too, he said. Participants will take
the supplement for three months, and the re-
searchers will follow participants for an ex-
tra month to see if there are any side effects,
he said. Although resveratrol is found in red
wine, the study has nothing to do with red
wine, Smith said.
"If that was the case, we would have people
pounding on our door," Manini said.

Engineering and Science Fair draws about 450


J Hunter Sizemore/Alligator Staff
Shaina Rosenauer, a UF chemical engineering student, freezes a mixture of heavy cream,
sugar and chocolate syrup using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream.


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

A Mars rover model, robots and
bowls of ice cream chilled with liquid
nitrogen were some of the exhibits at the
Engineering and Science Fair, known as
the E-Fair, Monday and Tuesday.
The fair, which attracted about 450
people to the Reitz Union Grand Ball-
room, included students from local el-
ementary schools, middle schools and
an after-school program.
The fair had about 33 booths spon-
sored by UF clubs and research orga-
nizations and hoped to encourage chil-
dren to pursue science-oriented careers,
said Robert Williams, an industrial and
systems engineering junior.
Williams said it's important for stu-
dents to have an idea of what they want
to study before making their college
plans.
Anthony Moore, a seventh-grader at
Howard Bishop Middle School, wants
to be a mechanical engineer. He mar-
veled at a solar-powered car on display
but thinks one day he'll be able to make


an even better robot.
"Probably when my time comes
along there will be more advanced
technology," Anthony said.
Three-year-old Daniel Dickrell also
has an idea about his future.
He's debating between a job as a pi-
lot and a job as Buzz Lightyear.

"Probably when my time comes
along there will be more ad-
vanced technology."
Anthony Moore
Howard Bishop Middle School
seventh grader

The fair is not just an opportunity
for students to form career plans. It's
also a chance for scientists and students
to have a little fun.
Paul Muri, president of the Institute
of Electrical and Electronics Engineers,
said the fair gives scientists the chance
to make their research available to stu-
dents.
"Information is just out in the open,"
Muri said.

Company sells T-shirts and totes


CLOTHING, from page 1

tive to mainstream products.
"I knew I wanted to do something
that would inspire people and uplift the
world," he said.
The company, whose concept took
about a year and a half to develop, uses
handmade designs on T-shirts made from
organic cotton and bamboo. The company
also sells tote bags.
The prices of the shirts range from
about $15 to $25, while the tote bags cost
$6.
The biggest challenge for the business
is making the company's name known as
it competes with more mainstream prod-
ucts, Griffin said.
"Think about how much Nike and Adi-
das spend on advertising-that's hard to
compete against," he said. "I think the
product lends itself to people as opposed
to people lending itself to the product."
Building the business has cost about


$2,000, he said.
Jill Casey, who bought three shirts and
one bag from Griffin's company, likes the
design and the feel of the T-shirts.
"I love them," Casey said. "I wear them
all the time when it's warm outside," she
said.
"I knew I wanted to do something
that would inspire people and
uplift the world."
Lance Griffin
UF senior

Griffin is holding a "Dream-a-Design"
contest for which his company is accept-
ing T-shirt ideas.
Profits from the sales of the selected
shirt will go toward funding sustainable
agricultural systems in developing coun-
tries.
For more information about the prod-
uct, visit the company Web site at www.

Student Government spring ballot will have three referendum questions


BALLOT, from page 1

said.
Charles said it is important for
students to know about the ques-
tions before they vote so they can
educate themselves about the is-
sues.
"I think it's extremely impor-
tant that students take an active


interest in them so they know
what they're voting and how it
will be affecting not only the UF
community, but the Student Body
in general," Charles said.
Charles said students should
take time to educate themselves
about the Reitz Union fee and the
other questions on the ballot so
they can make an informed deci-
sion on election day.


She said a student fee would
not be the sole source of funding
for the renovations.
It could be supplemented by
other sources
GStudeent of funding,
vernment such as Capital
Improvement
Trust Funds.
Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader
for the Student Alliance party,


agreed that students should have
a voice, especially on issues such
as the Reitz Union fee.
Ossip said the Student Alli-
ance party favors exploring alter-
natives to the student fee, includ-
ing redirecting about $1 million
in SG funding to help fund the
renovation.
"You know to go straight into
students' pockets first is really not


acting in their best interests," he
said.
There will also be one question
regarding the Student Body Con-
stitution.
The constitutional amendment
would change the appointment
time for summer replacement se-
antors and amend election laws

Walker steps up to challenge


Guard still learning to lead


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org

During the offseason, Billy
Donovan told Erving Walker this
season would be the toughest of
his life.
The sophomore point guard
has had his ups and downs this
year, but he hasn't backed down
from his coach's challenge.
"I wouldn't say the hardest.
Basketball is basketball," Walker
said. "It's been challenging, and
I've had some rocky points and
some high points, but I'd say
that's just how life is in general.
I'm just embracing it."
With Florida on a two-game


losing streak and entering the
most critical stretch of its season,
the team will lean on its 5-foot-8
point guard to lead them on the
court.
The Gators will need him to be
on top of his game if they hope to
make the NCAA Tournament for
the first time in three years.
But for the quiet, mild-man-
nered Walker, assuming a leader-
ship role is still a work in prog-
ress. He has embraced the role of
floor general as the starting point
guard, but he has yet to take on
all the responsibilities his coach
wants him to.
"Your team follows and goes
off your point guard," Donovan
said. "Erving, in a positive sense,


Steven H. Keys/Alligator Staff
UF guard Erving Walker has cooled off from the field after his hot
start to SEC play, shooting just 37 percent in the last five games.


has a really calm demeanor about
him and is very, very under con-
trol and does not get too rattled.
"Sometimes he has got to, even
in practice, show a little more in-
tensity, some more focus, some
more fire not necessarily with
his mouth, but a lot of times with
his actions."
Walker has been struggling on
the floor lately. His usually im-
pressive assist-to-turnover ratio
has taken a hit since UF's 61-60
loss to Tennessee, when the Vol-
unteers rattled the point guard
with pressure in a way he hadn't
seen all year.
Walker has 23 assists to 21
turnovers over the Gators' five
games since Jan. 31. Removing
those contests, he has 106 assists
to just 40 turnovers on the year.
At the beginning of the South-
eastern Conference season, it
seemed as if he could hardly
miss from three-point range,
and he shot 47 percent from the
field in the Gators' first six league
games.
Over the last five games, Walk-
er cooled down a bit, making just
21 of 57 attempts from the field
(37 percent).
"I try to have a short-term
memory when it comes to turn-
overs and shooting and just go on
with the next play," Walker said.
"This is new to me, but so far, it's
going pretty good.
"We stumbled the last few
games, but we've just got to pick
it back up."
Those struggles even car-
ried over off the court last week.
Walker was late to a team meet-
ing Saturday morning and had to
sit out of the starting lineup for
the first time all season.
Donovan said the incident
was an exception to the rule for
Walker, but the coach still expects
more out of someone looking to
become more of a leader.
"As a point guard, he needs to
understand the level of account-
ability he needs to have," Dono-
van said. "He needs to be not
only there and on time, but he
should be the point guard hud-
dling these guys up talking about
what we need to be doing.
"Hopefully that situation will
be an opportunity for him to
grow."


Catcher position


still up for grabs
By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

In a game defined by box scores, Hampton Tignor's
name has been near irrelevant the past two years.
The catcher's career began with promise, starting 23
games his freshman year. But in the two seasons since, he
has started a total of 20 games.
Entering his final season with the Gators, Tignor is not
focused on the arc of his playing career.
Rather, he enjoys mentoring freshman
Austin Maddox, freshman Mike Zunino
and sophomore Ben McMahan.
Baseball "I've always had players around me
who were very good at bringing me along,
teaching me the game and teaching me the right way to go
about the game from a mental perspective," Tignor said.
"I feel like that's translated into where I am today as a
player."
As an underclassman, Tignor admired former Gators
Matt LaPorta and Brian Jeroloman, who are now in the
minor league systems of the Cleveland Indians and To-
ronto Blue Jays, respectively.

Freshmen to contribute


in Gators' home opener


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

After a 3-1 start at the USF
Wilson DeMarini Invitational,
No. 3 Florida will be playing
its home opener tonight at 5
against Jacksonville.
It will be the first game in
Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium
for the team's freshmen, some
of whom have already made an
impact.
Catcher, right fielder and des-
ignated hitter Brittany Schutte
has been a force at the plate up
to this point in the young sea-
son, hitting a pair of home runs
and tying for the team lead with
a .533 on-base percentage.
"It felt really good to start off
like that, and I still have a lot of


work to do, but its good to start
the collegiate season off that
way," Schutte said.
The utility player's efforts
clearly impressed coach Tim
Walton, as he
moved Schutte
from sixth in
the lineup in
the Gators'
first game up
to fifth against
Walton Georgia Tech,
and then to
second in Florida's two Sunday
games.
Schutte's ability to hit for
power while still drawing
walks gives Walton the flexibil-
ity to use her as a table-setter or

Maddox likely to see time at first base, DH instead of behind plate


BASEBALL, from page 16

LaPorta was disciplined and
self-motivated, and Jeroloman
knew how to handle the diverse
personalities of the pitching
staff.
Tignor shares those lessons
with the underclassmen, but he
has more advice: Don't get too
excited, and don't get too upset.
Even with a level head, a 56-
game regular season can be tough
to adjust to.
"The best high school teams
will play 32 games total, includ-
ing a state championship game,"
Tignor said. "We'll play 32 games
in 35 days."
McMahan did not get worn
down by the grind of the season
last year. Instead, he had the op-
posite problem. McMahan said
he struggled to get into a groove,
batting .100 in 30 plate appear-
ances.
But he regained confidence and
improved defensively last sum-
mer while playing in the Cape
Cod Baseball League, which fea-
tures more than 400 college play-
ers and some of the best pitchers
in the nation.
After rarely playing in 2009,
McMahan hopes to surprise
Southeastern Conference oppo-
nents.


"People really don't know me
in the SEC too well right now,"
he said, "so it's my chance to step
up and make a name for myself."
Working mostly at first base


in the preseason, Maddox is un-
likely to crouch behind the plate.
Head coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said he might move sophomore
Preston Tucker to right field if


Maddox proves to be a capable
first baseman.
But the experiment is predi-
cated on the 6-foot-3, 230-pound
Maddox becoming a more fluid

UF catcher Hampton Tignor will try to win the starting catching job in his final season as a Gator, but he
will also serve as a mentor for the underclassmen he is battling for the position.


player.
Coaches have spent the pre-
season improving his footwork
and throwing, as Maddox said
defense was not his priority in
high school.
"I didn't work on it nearly as
much as I should have," he said.
"I've been blessed with a lot of
talent, so I've just been able to go
out there and do my thing and
not really focus on the mechan-
ics."
Regardless of how much
Maddox's defense improves,
O'Sullivan said he has found
UF's cleanup hitter.
During a batting practice ses-
sion two weeks ago, Maddox hit
five opposite-field home runs,
each one banging off the score-
board behind the right-center
field fence.
But for all their raw talent,
Maddox and the other young
catchers don't have the experi-
ence Tignor does.
And he can't wait to use it.
Not to get himself more playing
time, but to help the underclass-
men improve so he can do some-
thing he never has: celebrate a
championship.
"If that's not your motivation
for a season, to win a ring," Ti-
gnor said, "then you're playing
for the wrong reasons."


Starting pitcher yet to be named for tonight's game against Jacksonville

a run-producer.
"She's just really looked good," Walton
said. "It's something I anticipated, but un-
til you play for real, you don't know, but
she was there and ready to play."
The other freshman who has worked
her way into the starting lineup is Brittany
Walker.
Walker has yet to start producing at the
plate but has been error-free in her first
four games at shortstop.


The team also has a pair of freshman
pitchers who saw action in the opening
tournament.
It was an up-and-down weekend for
Ensley Gammel, who overcame control is-
sues to get the win in the season opener.
But she couldn't over come her control
inconsistencies against Long Island, as she
walked three and gave up a hit while re-
cording just two outs.
"She had way too many walks and
didn't give her team a chance to play de-
fense behind her," Walton said. "Hitters
are going to start hitting on her when you


can't get ahead in counts."
Fellow freshman Erin Schuppert seemed
to be a steadier option in relief, throwing
6.1 scoreless innings and tallying a save in
the tournament.
Schuppert also excelled
in the area where Gammel
struggled most, walking only
Softball a pair in her two appearanc-
es.
Despite the disparity in quality of UF's
early season performances, Walton is still
uncertain how he will handle the role of
number two pitcher as the season contin-


ues.
"I really don't have a set plan," Walton
said.
"Erin and Ensley are going to spend a
lot of time splitting games, I might start
one and pull her and then bring her back.
They're totally, completely different pitch-
ers, so I might move them around and
shake it up a bit to make it difficult for hit-
ters."
At this point, it is unclear whether one
of the freshman pitchers or junior ace
Stephanie Brombacher will start tonight's
game.

After a long and grueling regu-

and men's swimming and diving
teams will begin competition to-
day in the 2010 Southeastern Con-
ference Championship Meet.
The four-day meet, which is be-

Ga., will conclude on Saturday.
The women's squad will try to
defend its 2009 SEC title and win
its 18th overall in school history. If
successful, it would mark the first
time Florida has repeated since
1995-96.
"We've got a tremendous chal-

0the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc of Gainesville, Florida VOLUME 103 ISSUE 105 We Inform. You Decide. -0 Resye WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 Senators tout transparency 0 SENATORS VOTED TO PUT RECORDS ONLINE. By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Student Government senators are leaving nothing to the imagination. The Student Government budget and Senate voting and attendance records will be available online in three to four weeks. Senators unanimously passed two bills that would place the records online during Tuesday's meeting. Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader for the Student Alliance party, said these bills will help students make informed decisions in SG and have a better idea about what their money goes toward. "I'm really happy that the Senate is choosing to go in this direction," Ossip said. Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers said he sees no reason why these records should not be readily available to students. "I personally am very proud of how Ivoted in the past, and I think most people are," Meyers said. He agreed with Ossip that it is important for students to be able to track where their fees are going in SG. "Every student contributes to our $14.4 million budget, and it's important that students have their say," Meyers said. As the Feb. 23 and Feb. 24 SG elections approach, senators also passed resolutions encouraging students to vote and NAP "promoting more sustainable election campaigns. A resolution is a piece of legislation that states the opinions of senators without taking action. The sustainability resolution comes in the wake of the distribution of fliers critical of the Unite Party on fraternity and sorority rows and on the Plaza of the Americas last week. STUDENT GOVERNMENT Ballot questions explained By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer During next week's Student Government elections, students will have the opportunity to answer three referendum questions while they are at the polls. Two of the three questions revolve around a potential student fee that would help fund the renovation of the Reitz Union. The first question asks if there should be a student fee to fund the Reitz Union repairs. The second question asks if the fee should also fund an expansion of the union. The final referendum question asks students if UF should join the Workers Rights Consortium, which would ensure UF and Gator apparel is not made in sweatshops. "A referendum is the perfect way to hear exactly what the students want." Ashton Charles Senate President Senate President Ashton Charles, who represents the Unite Party, said each of the referendum questions on the ballot is important for students to answer.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Finance club holds flash mob to promote poker tournament bieven H. Keys / migazor wiani Kim Crofford and Jackie Arellano dance on Turlington Plaza Tuesday with a flash mob to promote a poker tournament fundraiser. By ERICA COOK Alligator Contributing Writer About 20 students put on their poker faces and danced to Lady Gaga in Turlington Plaza Tuesday afternoon. They broke it down for passing students during two dance performances, which each lasted about five minutes and were part of a flash mob sponsored by the Student Finance Group, an organization that teaches students from any major about how to invest and save money and find internships. Through its dance, the group hoped to promote its poker tournament at Beef 0' Brady's on Thursday at 8 p.m., said Bastian Bockenhuser, the flash mob's coordinator. The tournament will raise money for the Student Finance Group's bus trip to Disney World at the end of April, Bockenhuser said. The trip will cost about $800, but the group has already raised about $300 from member dues and past events, he said. "We hope that the poker tournament will help us raise the remaining money to go on our trip," Bockenhuser said. The poker tournament costs $10 to enter, and anyone can participate. Students who go on the trip will use free Disney tickets earned from participating in a Day of Difference on March 26. For the Day of Difference, volunteers will reach out to local elementary school students and teach them about business and economics. "We hope that the poker tournament will help us raise the remaining money to go on our trip." Bastian Bockenhuser the flash mob's coordinator The students who performed in Turlington Plaza had a slightly different mission. Three of them wore life-size playing card cutouts, while others passed out playing cards advertising the tournament. Jackie Arellano, a member of the Student Finance Group, said she was not nervous about dancing in the middle of Turlington Plaza. "We wanted to promote unity and harmony within the group," Arellano said. Speaker promotes homeless 'adoption' program on tour 0 HE WILL BE SPEAKING TODAY AT 6 P.M. By NATHAN BEAM Alligator Contributing Writer Wood paneling, shag carpet and a plastic pantry frame the interior of the van-turned-home. To some, the 1994 Ford Econoline is a mere vehiFde, but to some homeless people in Florida, it is a beacon of hope. From his van, James Barnett, 24 is introducing Adopt-A-Jesus, a homeless adoption program, to Gainesville. "The idea behind Adopt-A-Jesus is simple," Barnett said. "One group in the community finds a homeless person in need and helps them out." Barnett is traveling on a crosscountry speaking tour for the next year and is speaking at the Wesley Foundation today at 6 p.m. The program is one way Barnett invites people to get involved in their community. Those who "adopt" a homeless person are asked Around to invest in that Gainesville person's life over meals, conversations and basic provision of their needs. "It really isn't that complicated," Barnett said. "There is no law on how a community is supposed to love someone." Barnett has developed a process for choosing the homeless in the program. He chooses homeless people who he finds would best fit into the program and invites them to be adopted -people who are determined to better their lives and are unlikely to get in trouble with law. Those who are interested go through a brief interview process, and those accepted are offered for adoption at the places he speaks. Sam Shepherd, 20, adopted a homeless man with his Bible study. "It's great," Shepherd said. "We've already been out to lunch with him, and it's been surprising. I always thought things like this would be hard, but if anything, it's taught me that people are people." As Barnett continues his speaking tour, he wants to be clear about one thing. "It comes down to community, not convenience," he said. Do you have what it takes to be a Tailgate Champion?

4, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 Author speaks about Islam By MINCH MINCHIN Alligator Writer Islam-American relations have not improved since Sept. 11, and they are only getting worse, said John Esposito during a speech Tuesday night at the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom. Unless government officials make drastic changes to U.S. foreign policy, a peaceful solution between Islamic nations and America will not come for a long time, said Esposito, an author and Georgetown professor. He spoke to a crowd of about 250 students and addressed whether Islam represents a threat to the United States. "Islam is no more a threat than any mainstream religion is a threat," he said. Esposito addressed topics such as Sept. 11, U.S. foreign policy and media perceptions of Islam. The prevailing U.S. perceptions of Islam are unfairly skewed because Sept. 11 caused some Americans to judge all Muslims based on the actions of a few extremists, he said. This is akin to judging all Catholics by the Spanish Inquisition, Esposito said. "All religions have a transcendent side and a dark side," he said. "Any religion can be translated darkly." Only 7 percent of worldwide Muslims are potential extremists, he said, but unless the U.S. changes its policies toward Islamic countries, the number of potential extremists could increase. The problems created by the On wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are Campus persisting and getting worse, he said. The American forces in the Middle East are inciting anti-American sentiment instead of winning the hearts and minds of Muslims, Esposito said. "American military presence needs to be pulled out as fast as it can occur," he said. Accent paid Esposito $8,500 for the lecture.

By ALLYSON FOX Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville Police Department Chief Tony Jones wants city residents to understand a couple of things. First, Jones wants Gainesville residents to know they play a critical role in preventing crime. Secondly, Jones wants local citizens to know that as chief he promises to do everything in his power to reduce crime in Gainesville. The Gainesville Police Department addressed its recent reorganization and changes it has made in order to better serve the community. About a dozen citizens attended the meeting Tuesday evening at the Gainesville Police 2010 presentation, held at the Westside Park recreation center. "I knew change was needed at GPD," Jones said. Local Jones added that News sergeants will now work as a team with the police officers. Previously, the sergeants were on different shifts. "We've got to work in partnership," Jones said. In addition, GPD is anticipating budget cuts, so it needs an increasing amount of community aid in preventing crime. Currently, GPD has a class for volunteers called the Citizen's Academy, which is designed to engage residents in their community. "The end result is volunteers will work in the police department," said Capt. Ed Book. The volunteers will use skills they already have in order to serve their community. Tasks will require grant-writing and clerical skills. GPD hopes that eventually citizens on patrol will be able to identify and prevent crimes, Book said. Barbara Ruth, Stephen Foster Neighborhood Association president, said she decided to attend the presentation to have a better understanding of GPD's changes. "It seems like a very positive thing is happening," Ruth said. "I think the new chief is doing some good things."

6, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 Editorial Frivolous Filers SG should stop wasteful distribution of fliers he Editorial Board always loves when it gets the chance to call Student Government out on yet another thing it's done that is stupid and completely useless. And today is certainly no different than any other occasion. We couldn't help but laugh at the Student Senate's newest installment of ridiculous resolutions with no point whatsoever. For all of you who don't know what that is, have no fear: A resolution is the Senate's official opinion on something. That's right, it does absolutely nothing. And on a side note, stop passing resolutions. They don't do anything, and contrary to popular belief, no one cares what your opinion is. Additionally, half the things you make resolutions about you have absolutely no control over. (The resolution that advocated of a two-state solution in the Gaza conflict anyone? If the United Nations can't even help, UF's SG certainly won't do anything.) But seriously, you guys really passed a resolution talking about possible methods of campaigning in a sustainable way? We mean, we get it; it was obviously a dig from both parties that were made at the other parties because of last week's mysterious flier incident. For those of you who don't follow our SG election coverage religiously, we'll give you a summary: Fliers with the Unite Party symbol and the word "obey?" written below the Unite symbol, which mocked some of Unite's brainless drones, were placed on cars on Fraternity and Sorority rows. Regardless of who made the fliers and who put them on the cars, when it comes down to it, all of you are being wasteful. Just take a short stroll along campus, and you'll definitely see that a vast majority of your beloved fliers with your candidates' mugs on them wind up in trashcans or on the ground. That doesn't seem very sustainable to us. Furthermore, you all just wasted even more paper writing this stupid resolution and having a hundred copies made of it so you and your "frienemies" are able to discuss it and vote on it. That doesn't seem very sustainable either. So instead of using your pretty, glossy paper, make some signs to hang in Turlington Plaza. And if you insist on keeping the fliers, take a page from the Alligator's book and use recycled paper or consider handing out those fliers near a recycling bin so people can throw them in there instead of on the ground when they inevitably decide not to read them. That way, when students are done pretending to look at them so you'll leave them alone, they can throw them in there instead of the trashcans. We get that recycled paper isn't the prettiest and is even a little dingy, but it works for us. After all, more people are reading this editorial than your flier right now. 0the independent florida alligator Chelsea Keenan EDITOR Emily Fuggetta J Hunter Sizemore MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the 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, style and libel Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University A e, or send them to PO Box 14257, Gainesville, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions? Call 376-4458 Opinions -I /6 Column America should focus on education he United States is a country that, while undoubtedly a strong and immensely powerful leader in many areas of global society, faces several serious issues as it pushes forward into the future. Beyond issues such as ongoing wars, steady unemployment and reality TV shows giving birth to other, far worse reality TV shows, one specific issue rises above the rest in its level of importance and the amount of immediate action we must take to combat its potential effects. This issue is a growing ignorance by a majority of our population toward confronting and solving the major problems and questions facing our nation today. This ignorance is being supported by an overall lack of resolve and patience, partisanbickering and a tendency for the national consciousness to be distracted and concerned with issues of far lesser importance. It arises from the materialistic and media-driven culture we live in, a culture created from the 24-hour news cycle and the ever-expanding reach of technology. It is defined and enforced by an invasive media presence, social networking sites and an obsessive fascination with celebrity and popular culture. Through the advancements and abuse of technology, we have created another realm into which people can immerse themselves and forget about the real problems that face the world. It is too alarmist to say that no one pays attention to the dire issues and problems, such as global warming, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and international economic malaise. There are obviously a veritable army of experts who are handling these matters, but I feel that we should engage topics of national importance on an individual level and not become lost in our daily lives. However, a growing majority of Americans are slipping into an electronically induced "social coma," which has taken away their eyes, ears and ability to think for Joshua Lee letters@ali gator org themselves. News outlets regulate and disperse news, but too often they focus on the scandal, the sensational or anything that brings in the ratings. Somewhere Tiger Woods is nodding his head. In consumer-driven America, the truth is slimmed down, parceled out in fiveminute news blocks and drowned out among biased reports from all sides. And while the Internet has brought an unprecedented amount of information to people's fingertips, social networking sites, which receive traffic in the millions each day, have allowed people to create a world of their own while forsaking real issues that are right outside their front door. Time and energy is being lost on these endeavors as the minutiae of daily life have now gained this overinflated sense of appeal and worth. I miss the days when I didn't know what my high school teacher thought of Avatar or what type of animal my friend found wandering on his virtual farm. We must look past the events of our own lives and form a greater coalition to solve the great problems of our age. This social coma that has overtaken so many can only be lifted, in my opinion, through greater funding toward proper education of the youth; more emphasis on relevant areas of life, such as international relations or national governance; and a greater focus on the true reality of our increasingly precarious situation as a global leader in a dangerous world. Will all of these things be achieved in the near future and allow for this veil to be lifted? According to the Facebook poll I just completed, they will not.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Letter about Student Alliance party's name failed to mention Unite's history Ryan Scott's letter to the editor Tuesday stated that "as much as changing the name and logo of a party can be aesthetically pleasing, it doesn't hide the fact that the party is Orange and Blue 2.0." So, he's basically saying that the Student Alliance party changed its name to cover up some former indiscretion in hopes that no one would notice, right? That sounds really familiar. Oh, wait. Remember those e-mails between top Gator Party officials that talked about how to keep the Orange and Blue Party from getting certain Senate appointments and committee assignments? It turns out the Gator Party was so unhappy about those e-mails being leaked that it tried to steal all the Alligator newspapers that morning to prevent the student body from reading about it. That was followed up with a bombardment of anti-Orange and Blue Party fliers titled "Lies," for which it subsequently apologized. It's no surprise that the semester after that politically damaging scandal, the Gator Party changed its name to the Unite Party. So, I find it funny that Student Alliance party is being unjustly accused of something the Unite/ Gator Party has actually done fairly recently because that happened only a little over a year ago. I guess some people are quick to forget. it should at least tone down its absurd, overAida Bibart blown rhetoric and stop lashing out at its op3LS ponents. Unite should stop lashing out at critics Why does the Unite Party get so outraged whenever it is criticized? Most people would agree with the fairly expressed criticism of the Unite Party. It takes thousands in student money for personal perks like student-subsidized meal cards, parking decals and cell phone plans. It rushed to impose a big Reitz Union fee (not covered by Bright Futures) on every student without telling anyone the total cost of the proposal or how long it will last. It completely dropped the ball on protecting Bright Futures, putting its faith in weekend trips to Tallahassee (totally fruitless) and in paying an inept lobbyist (who evidently spends more time working for his other clients in the insurance industry than for us). Yet whenever someone calls out the Unite Party with reasonable criticism, it sends out its people to personally attack anybody who disagrees with them. In the past few days, it has said that its opponents want the Reitz Union to crumble (when in fact all its opponents disagreed with was a massive fee) and even compared its political rivals to serial killers. This is America. While the Unite Party may feel threatened by those who disagree, Student Body candidate broke regulation I am fairly new to Student Government, having served as a student senator representing Beaty Towers for merely a semester. Yet I've taken it upon myself to learn the necessary rules and regulations when it comes to elections and campaigning. Evidently, Ben Cavataro has not. A couple days ago, Ben Cavataro went door-to-door in The Estates apartment complex. Going door-to-door is not only an inconvenience to those who live in the complexes, but it is also a clear violation of election codes. Ben Cavataro should know this. Such a blatant disregard for the rules is probably why he was recommended for disqualification by the Election Commission when he first ran for office. Anyone who chronically violates the rules that guarantee the fairness of our democratic process, as Ben Cavataro did, should not be running for office. How could someone with no regard for the political process be running for Student Body president? I am deeply troubled by Cavataro and his party's disregard for these essential rules. I was under the impression that Cavataro was an experienced former senator. Apparently, he has been out of the Senate so long that he has forgotten how SG operates. Whoever wins this election should win it fairly by following the rules, not by cheating. Hayley Plant UF freshman U U U Editorial misrepresented demonstration The "Fear Factor" editorial in Monday's Alligator labeled the anti-abortion Genocide Awareness Project in the headline as "antichoice .ineffective, distasteful". Although the large photographs are unpleasant to view, the project is very effective at portraying the distasteful choice of abortion. Yes, abortion is legal in America today, just as slavery was legal in the United States and the Holocaust was legal in Hitler's Germany. The "bloody photographs of abortions gone wrong" (quite a redundant phrase) are accurate images of the victims of typical abortions, and they frequently change viewers' minds. For proof, visit AbortionNo.org and click on Changed Minds/Abortion Regrets Testimonies. While other bloody medical procedures are performed to heal and extend lives, every abortion is performed to harm and end the life of an unborn baby. Michael A. Schrimsher Florida director, Center for Bioethical Reform Guest column Student Alliance party represents necessary change in politics IIt's time." That simple phrase means more than just a great video produced by the Student Alliance party. It represents a fundamental change from politics as usual in Student Government. When 80 percent of students do not vote in SG elections, it's not hard to wonder why they feel SG is out of touch at best and disingenuous at worst when it comes to hearing student voices. It's time for students to receive real information about the proposed Reitz Union fee. This fee will not be covered by Bright Futures or Florida Prepaid. This fee is being forced upon students in the middle of the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. This fee is being imposed for an uncertain and undisclosed amount of time. The Unite Party and the Reitz Union Board of Managers (composed of Unite Party appointees) wholeheartedly endorse and support reaching into your wallet when other sources of funding, such as Florida's Capital Improvements Trust Fund, are available. Alarmingly, the Unite Party is actively promoting confusion about the facts of the fee. They claim the fee is for Rafael A. Yaniz $42.5 million in "repairs" to the Reitz Speaking Out Union while quietly sneaking in that they want to construct a more than $80 million dollar expansion to the Reitz Union. That adds up to more than $120 million they expect students to pay for at the end of the day. The Student Alliance party believes that by enacting simple waste-cutting measures in the SG budget, and by reaching out to alternative sources of funding, we can pay for the repairs to the Reitz Union at no additional student cost. Reaching into students' wallets as the first course of action is unacceptable and just plain wrong, especially in our tough economic times. In addition to redirecting mismanaged funds from the SG budget, the Student Alliance party will work with the University Athletics Association and prominent alumni to increase student organization space in the Reitz Union without an egregious fee being imposed on the Student Body. One proposal from the Student Alliance party involves moving the Reitz Union Hotel to the half-constructed building across from the stadium on University Avenue. This relocation will free up two floors' worth of space in the current Reitz Union while maintaining the service of the hotel, increasing revenues for the union and SG. The Unite Party and the current administration have called imposing this unnecessary fee increase and expansion project their "legacy." But let me be clear: The only "legacy" this fee increase will leave is a legacy of debt. It's time for SG to work on behalf of students and student organizations. Student Alliance party has more than 70 meaningful and well-explained ideas on its platform. You can visit www.ufstudentalliance.com to learn about how we plan on protecting your wallet, protecting your Bright Futures and giving student organizations the ability to meaningfully increase their budgets. At the end of the day, your vote does matter, and you do have a choice. You can stand by as more money is taken out of your pocket, or you can take two minutes on Feb. 23 or 24 to make your voice heard in SG. Rafael A.

8, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 AROUND GAINESVILLE Student scarfs five pounds of ice cream By EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer Some brought their own spoons, some brought hot water, but they all brought an appetite. Fifteen students representing different UF organizations showed up at The Caffeine Bar at Ben & Jerry's to compete in the first Vermonster Challenge Tuesday night in front of a crowd of more than 300. The participants raced to be the first to finish Ben & Jerry's Vermonster -a 14,000-calorie ice cream creation with 20 scoops of ice cream, four bananas, one brownie, 10 scoops of nuts and eight scoops of toppings, all topped with whipped cream. The rules were simple: Finish all of the ice cream, and if you throw up, you're out. Sigma Phi Epsilon's Kurt Gielow was victorious Tuesday evening, finishing his five pounds of ice cream in about 13 minutes. Contestants had different strategies to prepare for the eat-a-thon. About five said they starved themselves and one said he ate Chinese before competing. The competitors from TriGators and UF Wrestling club were the only other two contestants to finish their ice cream, placing second and third respectively. Both received $20 gift cards to Ben & Jerry's. The winning organization received a trophy and $250 from Ben & Jerry's. Ben & Jerry's gave Gielow a $50 gift card for conquering The Vermonster in the fastest time. At least five competitors were disqualified for throwing up.

Koop finished second overall in the Ben & Jerry's Vermonster Eating Contest on Tuesday night. UF study will determine if compound helps older adults ETHE COMPOUND IS FOUND IN WINE. By SARAH JACKSON Alligator Contributing Writer A new study by UF researchers is testing to see if resveratrol, a compound commonly found in red grapes, produces benefits in older adults. .1 The purpose of RIPE Trial, Resveratrol for Improved Performance in the Elderly Trial, is to see if the compound is safe for humans to consume, said Todd Manini, Ph.D. and coprinicipal investigator of the study. "It's a powder compound, similar to vitamins that you would find in a drug store," Manini said. Resveratrol is an antioxidant thought to rescue adults from the impairments of old age, he said. The compound may help adults reduce their fatigue and improve their memory. In previous studies, scientists found the compound was safe for U F animals and improved their Research memory. The trial will monitor participants' memories with MRI scans to see how the blood is redistributed after three months, he said. If the compound helps cells produce more Copyrighted Material energy, it may help adults have a stronger memory, too, he said. Participants will take the supplement for three months, and the researchers will follow participants for an extra month to see if there are any side effects, he said. Although resveratrol is found in red wine, the study has nothing to do with red wine, Smith said. "If that was the case, we would have people pounding on our door," Manini said. 9 I Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Black History Month 2010 Presents: A Coversatiovt with JoI-w Legentd Wednesday, February 17 Stephen C.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Engineering and Science Fair draws about 450 J Hunter Sizemore/Alligator Staff Shaina Rosenauer, a UF chemical engineering student, freezes a mixture of heavy cream, sugar and chocolate syrup using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream. By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer A Mars rover model, robots and bowls of ice cream chilled with liquid nitrogen were some of the exhibits at the Engineering and Science Fair, known as the E-Fair, Monday and Tuesday. The fair, which attracted about 450 people to the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom, included students from local elementary schools, middle schools and an after-school program. The fair had about 33 booths sponsored by UF clubs and research organizations and hoped to encourage children to pursue science-oriented careers, said Robert Williams, an industrial and systems engineering junior. Williams said it's important for students to have an idea of what they want to study before making their college plans. Anthony Moore, a seventh-grader at Howard Bishop Middle School, wants to be a mechanical engineer. He marveled at a solar-powered car on display but thinks one day he'll be able to make an even better robot. "Probably when my time comes along there will be more advanced technology," Anthony said. Three-year-old Daniel Dickrell also has an idea about his future. He's debating between a job as a pilot and a job as Buzz Lightyear. "Probably when my time comes along there will be more advanced technology." Anthony Moore Howard Bishop Middle School seventh grader The fair is not just an opportunity for students to form career plans. It's also a chance for scientists and students to have a little fun. Paul Muri, president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, said the fair gives scientists the chance to make their research available to students. "Information is just out in the open," Muri said.

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 Company sells T-shirts and totes CLOTHING, from page 1 tive to mainstream products. "I knew I wanted to do something that would inspire people and uplift the world," he said. The company, whose concept took about a year and a half to develop, uses handmade designs on T-shirts made from organic cotton and bamboo. The company also sells tote bags. The prices of the shirts range from about $15 to $25, while the tote bags cost $6. The biggest challenge for the business is making the company's name known as it competes with more mainstream products, Griffin said. "Think about how much Nike and Adidas spend on advertising-that's hard to compete against," he said. "I think the product lends itself to people as opposed to people lending itself to the product." Building the business has cost about $2,000, he said. Jill Casey, who bought three shirts and one bag from Griffin's company, likes the design and the feel of the T-shirts. "I love them," Casey said. "I wear them all the time when it's warm outside," she said. "I knew I wanted to do something that would inspire people and uplift the world." Lance Griffin UF senior Griffin is holding a "Dream-a-Design" contest for which his company is accepting T-shirt ideas. Profits from the sales of the selected shirt will go toward funding sustainable agricultural systems in developing countries. For more information about the product, visit the company Web site at www. breathesmilelove.com. Student Government spring ballot will have three referendum questions BALLOT, from page 1 said. Charles said it is important for students to know about the questions before they vote so they can educate themselves about the issues. "I think it's extremely important that students take an active interest in them so they know what they're voting and how it will be affecting not only the UF community, but the Student Body in general," Charles said. Charles said students should take time to educate themselves about the Reitz Union fee and the other questions on the ballot so they can make an informed decision on election day. She said a student fee would not be the sole source of funding for the renovations. It could be supplemented by other sources Student of funding, Government such as Capital Improvement Trust Funds. Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader for the Student Alliance party, agreed that students should have a voice, especially on issues such as the Reitz Union fee. Ossip said the Student Alliance party favors exploring alternatives to the student fee, including redirecting about $1 million in SG funding to help fund the renovation. "You know to go straight into students' pockets first is really not acting in their best interests," he said. There will also be one question regarding the Student Body Constitution. The constitutional amendment would change the appointment time for summer replacement seantors and amend election laws Staff writer Carolyn Tillo contributed to this article.

Catcher position still up for grabs By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@aligator org In a game defined by box scores, Hampton Tignor's name has been near irrelevant the past two years. The catcher's career began with promise, starting 23 games his freshman year. But in the two seasons since, he has started a total of 20 games. Entering his final season with the Gators, Tignor is not focused on the arc of his playing career. Rather, he enjoys mentoring freshman Austin Maddox, freshman Mike Zunino and sophomore Ben McMahan. Baseball "I've always had players around me who were very good at bringing me along, teaching me the game and teaching me the right way to go about the game from a mental perspective," Tignor said. "I feel like that's translated into where I am today as a player." As an underclassman, Tignor admired former Gators Matt LaPorta and Brian Jeroloman, who are now in the minor league systems of the Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays, respectively.

It will be the first game in Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium for the team's freshmen, some of whom have already made an impact. Catcher, right fielder and designated hitter Brittany Schutte has been a force at the plate up to this point in the young season, hitting a pair of home runs and tying for the team lead with a .533 on-base percentage. "It felt really good to start off like that, and I still have a lot of work to do, but its good to start the collegiate season off that way," Schutte said.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 17 Maddox likely to see time at first base, DH instead of behind plate BASEBALL, from page 16 LaPorta was disciplined and self-motivated, and Jeroloman knew how to handle the diverse personalities of the pitching staff. Tignor shares those lessons with the underclassmen, but he has more advice: Don't get too excited, and don't get too upset. Even with a level head, a 56game regular season can be tough to adjust to. "The best high school teams will play 32 games total, including a state championship game," Tignor said. "We'll play 32 games in 35 days." McMahan did not get worn down by the grind of the season last year. Instead, he had the opposite problem. McMahan said he struggled to get into a groove, batting .100 in 30 plate appearances. But he regained confidence and improved defensively last summer while playing in the Cape Cod Baseball League, which features more than 400 college players and some of the best pitchers in the nation. After rarely playing in 2009, McMahan hopes to surprise Southeastern Conference opponents. "People really don't know me in the SEC too well right now," he said, "so it's my chance to step up and make a name for myself." Working mostly at first base in the preseason, Maddox is unlikely to crouch behind the plate. Head coach Kevin O'Sullivan said he might move sophomore Preston Tucker to right field if Maddox proves to be a capable first baseman. But the experiment is predicated on the 6-foot-3, 230-pound Maddox becoming a more fluid Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff UF catcher Hampton Tignor will try to win the starting catching job in his final season as a Gator, but he will also serve as a mentor for the underclassmen he is battling for the position. player. Coaches have spent the preseason improving his footwork and throwing, as Maddox said defense was not his priority in high school. "I didn't work on it nearly as much as I should have," he said. "I've been blessed with a lot of talent, so I've just been able to go out there and do my thing and not really focus on the mechanics." Regardless of how much Maddox's defense improves, O'Sullivan said he has found UF's cleanup hitter. During a batting practice session two weeks ago, Maddox hit five opposite-field home runs, each one banging off the scoreboard behind the right-center field fence. But for all their raw talent, Maddox and the other young catchers don't have the experience Tignor does. And he can't wait to use it. Not to get himself more playing time, but to help the underclassmen improve so he can do something he never has: celebrate a championship. "If that's not your motivation for a season, to win a ring," Tignor said, "then you're playing for the wrong reasons." Starting pitcher yet to be named for tonight's game against Jacksonville SOFTBALL, from page 16 a run-producer. "She's just really looked good," Walton said. "It's something I anticipated, but until you play for real, you don't know, but she was there and ready to play." The other freshman who has worked her way into the starting lineup is Brittany Walker. Walker has yet to start producing at the plate but has been error-free in her first four games at shortstop. The team also has a pair of freshman pitchers who saw action in the opening tournament. It was an up-and-down weekend for Ensley Gammel, who overcame control issues to get the win in the season opener. But she couldn't over come her control inconsistencies against Long Island, as she walked three and gave up a hit while recording just two outs. "She had way too many walks and didn't give her team a chance to play defense behind her," Walton said. "Hitters are going to start hitting on her when you can't get ahead in counts." Fellow freshman Erin Schuppert seemed to be a steadier option in relief, throwing 6.1 scoreless innings and tallying a save in the tournament. Schuppert also excelled in the area where Gammel struggled most, walking only Softball a pair in her two appearances. Despite the disparity in quality of UF's early season performances, Walton is still uncertain how he will handle the role of number two pitcher as the season continues. "I really don't have a set plan," Walton said. "Erin and Ensley are going to spend a lot of time splitting games, I might start one and pull her and then bring her back. They're totally, completely different pitchers, so I might move them around and shake it up a bit to make it difficult for hitters." At this point, it is unclear whether one of the freshman pitchers or junior ace Stephanie Brombacher will start tonight's game.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Gators head to Athens for SEC Championships By MATT RUBIN Alligator Writer After a long and grueling regular season, the Florida women's and men's swimming and diving teams will begin competition today in the 2010 Southeastern Conference Championship Meet. The four-day meet, which is being hosted by Georgia in Athens, Ga., will conclude on Saturday. The women's squad will try to defend its 2009 SEC title and win its 18th overall in school history. If successful, it would mark the first time Florida has repeated since 1995-96. "We've got a tremendous challenge in front of us," UF coach Gregg Troy said. "Georgia is the best team in the country right now. Not only are they the best team in the country, they may be the best team ever. They are extremely deep and they're strong in every event." Senior Gemma Spofforth is one of the women's swimmers expected to step up to the challenge for the Gators. Spofforth, the defending SEC and NCAA champion in the 100and 200-yard backstroke and NCAA record holder in the 200, was the 2009 SEC Female Swimmer of the Year. Although the Gators have other returning SEC champions, they need strong showings from their young competitors. "One of the biggest points of emphasis will be that we have to get some good performances from our freshman swimmers like Jamie Bohunicky, Corinne Showalter and Eva Lehtonen," Troy said. After finishing its regular season undefeated, the UF men's team will try to win its 34th SEC title in school history and first since 1993. "It's great to have an undefeated men's team and it's nice to know that we can match up with all the other teams in the league," Troy said.

Because Fraser is the only returning SEC champion for the Gators, the team will need others to rise to the challenge. "We'll expect Omar Pinzon or Conor Dwyer to step up," Troy said. "They've both been good for us all year long, and they should be solid contributors." vo
