the independent florida the Avenuealiat Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc of Gainesville, Florida VOLUME 103 ISSUE 165 We Inform. You Decide. ON CAMPUS Faculty search raises questions By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer David Frank has 25 years of multimedia experience with The New York Times. UF's College of Journalism and Communications is looking to hire a multimedia expert. Frank applied for the position, but he wasn't hired. At The Times, Frank has been the director of photography, photo assignment editor, picture editor and a video journalist, which is his current position. But Frank doesn't have a graduate degree, so his experience isn't enough for the university to consider hiring him. This is one example of UF's growing focus on academic requirements for faculty. Colleges, such as the College of Journalism and Communications and the Rinker School of Building Construction, require graduate degrees for faculty, although the same educational standard isn't held for professionals in their respective fields. The journalism school needs someone to run the 21st Century News Laboratory, a lab intended to provide professional-level multimedia training for journalism and telecommunication students. UF Provost Joe Glover said that the university generally wants faculty with graduate degrees. But it's not always required. Once or twice a year, a waiver process can be used to overrule some positions' requirements, he said. But David Ostroff, chairman of the search committee for the news lab position, said he was told by an associate provost in a Glover hiring orientation that the requirements wouldn't be waived. Of the more than 20 applicants for the position, a number of them had excellent qualifications but did not have graduate degrees, Ostroff said. Graduate students will be using the lab, and it would be hard for someone without a graduate degree to teach them, he said. UF shouldn't have necessarily SEE FACULTY, PAGE 4 to RecycW THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 Textbook law intended to save students money 0 PUBLISHERS NOW HAVE TO EXPLAIN CHANGES MADE FROM EDITION TO EDITION. By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer Legislation that U.S. Congress passed in 2008 designed to reduce rising textbook costs went into effect July 1 and should start benefiting college students across the country when classes resume this fall. As part of the larger Higher Education Opportunity Act, the Textbook Affordability Law is intended to lower textbook prices by implementing three provisions written by Assistant Senate Majority Leader Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL). Textbook publishers are now required to disclose prices, as well as explain changes made from edition to edition, when marketing their books to professors. Currently, professors choose the texts their students use before each semester and according to research done by Student Public Interest Research Groups, 77 percent of professors said publishers rarely mention costs. "Professors tell me they don't even know the prices of the books they assign for classes," Durbin said in a conference call Wednesday. "Now there's no excuse." The second provision makes sure that bundled, shrink-wrapped textbooks will be a thing of the past, as publishers are now required to sell each item separately to give students a choice. The research groups found these materials, like CD-ROMs or supplemental texts, raise costs by 10 percent to 15 percent even though most students and professors never use them. Finally, schools must provide a textbook list to students for each course offered during registration, so they have On more time to shop around and Campus find the best deals. Durbin said he hopes that, given this information, most professors will choose the most affordable option for students, and students will have the resources necessary to save themselves money. Durbin said textbook prices have been rising at twice the rate of annual inflation for the last two decades. It has become such an economic burden on students that many students choose to forgo buying textbooks at all, which hurts their performance in class, Durbin said. Steven D. White, a professor of marketing and international business at Dartmouth University, said he's seen this happen countless times in his classroom. "This has become more pronounced," he said of students choosing to go without texts. "I can't tell you the number of students who come to me after performing badly on the first exam [and ask] to borrow my desk copy." Durbin admitted that this is only the first step in the battle against overpriced textbooks.

Those checks Satchel Raye bank won't compensate. were then cashed at Compass Bank locaowner of Satchel's Pizza Satchel Raye, owner of the restaurant, tions around Gainesville. said it's not the counterfeiters that irk him, Five checks were for $1,356 and one The restaurant pays its employees but the bank. was for $2,356. Raye said Satchel's doesn't about $35,000 every two weeks, so Raye "We feel the bank did us wrong," he often give payroll checks that high, and he had to be careful with money to make sure said. "We feel like a victim of Compass thinks the bank should have seen that all his restaurant could stay afloat. Bank more than the check fraud." six checks were cashed on the same day. He said if $6,000 more had been stolen, then the business would've struggled to make ends meet. The bank, he said, reimbursed the money and put it in his account, but the next day, it took the money back. Raye said the bank's reasoning was that it didn't need to refund him because he used a stamp for a signature on his checks -something, he said, the bank suggested he do to fill out large numbers of checks at once. Reitz to replace Hub as late-night study spot in fall 0 THE UNION'S GROUND AND FIRST FLOORS WILL BE OPEN UNTIL 3 A.M. By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Students who study late will have a little more space to spread out in the fall semester. Student Body President Ashton Charles announced during Tuesday's Student Senate meeting that the ground and first floors of the Reitz Union will be open until 3 a.m. beginning in the fall. The Hub, which is the current late-night study hangout, will likely close at 8 p.m. on weekdays starting in the fall Currently, the Reitz Union closes anywhere between 9 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., depending on the day of the week. "It's just a logical move," Charles said of the change. "We'll be saving money and allowing more space for students to be there." She said Student moving lateGovernment night study hours to the Reitz Union will save the university about $35,000. The costs of keeping the ground floor and first floor open late will be taken out of the Reitz Union budget. In the fall, the Taco Bell and Starbucks in the Reitz Union will introduce later business hours, and Subway may follow suit, she said. Charles said this move not only saves money, but it addresses some safety concerns created while the late study hours were held in the Hub. "[The Hub] was really difficult to get to," Charles said. "People were trying to park, or if they lived on campus they had to walk in the dark." The Reitz Union has more security and more parking, Charles said. She said she has seen many students studying at the Reitz Union until it closes anyway. "It's just legitimizing the fact that people can study here," Charles said. THIS WEEK: Get Creative at UF!

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 Shands to limit access for some U PATIENTS FROM OUTSIDE SHANDS' PRIMARY SERVICE AREA WILL BE SENT TO OTHER CARE CENTERS. By LIDIA DINKOVA Alligator Contributing Writer Shands at UF will be forced to close its doors to some of its poorer patients. Because the Florida Legislature's special session was adjourned before it reviewed a re-installation of $9.7 million in the hospital's budget, Shands will have to refuse medical care to non-emergency patients from outside of its primary service area who are uninsured or under-insured. This decision will take effect within the next 30 days. Gov. Charlie Crist cut the $9.7 million from the hospital's budget back in May. As a teaching hospital, Stands accepts patients from ~l1 67 Florida counties, but with the lack of funding it will focus on the 13 counties crist that fall under its primary service area. "We are forced to limit charity care," Shands spokeswoman Kim Rose said. "Emergency patients we will stabilize, but if there are services closer to their home equivalent to ours, we will redirect them there." "It is both devastating and perplexing to us given that the governor recommended this funding as part of his budget and approved it in his previous three plans," said Tim Goldfarb, CEO of Shands HealthCare, in a news release posted on Shands' website. UF generally wants faculty with FACULTY, from page 1 hired Frank, but it would've been nice to at least have considered him, said David Carlson, the executive director of the Media Center for Media Innovation and Research at the journalism school. Carlson, who will oversee the news lab, is a member of the search committee for the multimedia job. The graduate-degree requirement has been an issue since the beginning of the search for applicants, Carlson said. "The provost has a different view than I," he said. "The provost looks at the university in broad ways, while I see just a small part of it." Whomever UF hires to work at the lab will report to Carlson, who doesn't have a graduate degree. In some ways, Carlson said he's less qualified than Frank. But the graduate-degree requirements make sense because the university has said it is a research university, Ostroff said. Some universities choose to forgo accrediting their colleges. Boston University's journalism program, for one, is not accredited. It will not have any professors with doctorate degrees until UF Journalism department chairman William McKeen leaves to chair the program in fall. UF's graduate-degree requirements are a concern to students like journalism junior Steve Johnson. Johnson met Frank last year when Frank came as a guest lecturer for a week in the fall. "Journalism is a trade, not a profession," Johnson said. All students benefit from learning from experienced faculty, he said. C n p "If you're in med school, Campus you want to learn from doctors who are practicing," he said. "If I wanted to learn how to do open-heart surgery, I don't want to learn from someone who learned it by the book; I want to learn from someone who does open-heart surgery." UF's journalism college wasn't always so strict about graduate degrees. Rae 0. Weimer, the namesake for the college's building, didn't have an undergraduate degree when he came to UF as the head Text bundles were cut TEXTBOOK, from page 1 ernment funding to support professors who write free, online, open-source texts. While students can find reason to celebrate, Santa Fe College student David Rozier said he thinks it's too early to get excited. "I feel that as professors, I don't think they're going to do as much as we'd expect," Rozier said, who works for textbook rental service omg.bookrenter.com. Rozier is glad about the law, but he sees a lot of work ahead. "Schools are all about the money," he said. "I think it's something slowly people will transition into." Durbin said students need to be assertive about their rights and contact university administration if they don't notice these changes being implemented. If that fails, he urges students to contact their local representatives, who may notify the Department of Education. grad degrees of the journalism department. He helped turn the Department of Journalism into the College of Journalism and Communications in 1967. "In some fields, professional experience is equally important," Glover said. He used the art program as an example. An accomplished artist might not have a graduate degree, but a waiver could be considered to bring him to UF, he said. The search committee has chosen two finalists for the lab job who will visit the university for final interviews. Carrie Pratt, a multimedia producer at the St. Petersburg Times and an adjunct lecturer at UF in the spring, will arrive Monday. According to her application, she expects to complete her master's degree in visual communication from Ohio University this summer. The other finalist, Katherine Reed, is an associate professor at Missouri School of Journalism and an editor at the Columbia Missourian. She received a master's degree in creative writing from Hollins University in 1992. Textbooks line the shelves behind the counter at the Florida Bookstore on West University Avenue.

THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 COLLEGE FOOTBALL Agent problem is common By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Sports agents have been at the center of many negative college football stories this year. As NCAA violations involving agents continue to surface, their business strategies and recruiting tactics are being questioned. Florida is one of the latest schools to join the trend. A report came out on Monday accusing former Gators center Maurkice Pouncey of receiving money from a representative of an agent while still playing for UF. "Allegations aren't all that surprising to me. Rumors have been around for quite a while," sports agent and CEO of Dynasty Athlete Representation Darren Heitner said. "It's just a matter of the fact that it seems as though the public is taking a lot of interest in it because of what recently transpired at USC with Reggie Bush." Pouncey is currently represented by Joel Segal, who had his firm Blue Entertainment Sports Television recently bought out by Lagardere Unlimited, a French conglomerate that is looking to make a big statement in sports representation in America. Segal also works as the agent for Bush, Chris Johnson, Michael Vick, and former Gators Riley Cooper and Percy Harvin among others. But an agent other than Segal could be the one behind the alleged scandal. The only reason one would give a studentathlete improper benefits is to recruit them as a client, according to Heitner. A failed attempt to lure Pouncey to their firm could be at the root of the alleged violation. "We in the industry understand that there may be many instances where agents are giving players money, and those agents don't even end up signing the player," Heitner said. If Pouncey is found to have accepted the money before the Sugar Bowl, many expect the NCAA to force Florida to vacate its win against Cincinnati in the BCS bowl game. However, Heitner doesn't believe the athlete should be blamed in this scenario. "Sometimes the players don't understand what .4i they can or cannot do ac14 j cording to NCAA, state and federal law," he said. "Really, the burden should be on the agents not to violate those rules." Heitner UF and the NCAA are conducting an investigation after Florida self-reported the potential rules violation. University Police Department Capt. Jeff Holcomb confirmed through e-mail "that the UFPD began the investigation into this case on June 9th and it is an ongoing investigation." "I think UF did a fantastic job," Heitner said. "By reporting it to the state authorities, and by saying they will comply with any investigation on the NCAA level, that is exactly the model that other schools should follow." No. 5 Nebraska: Big 12 North favorites 0 DEFENSE ALLOWED 10.4 POINTS PER GAME LAST YEAR By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@a IIigator org The second half of the alligatorSports' preseason top 10 poll begins with our No. 5 team, the Nebraska Huskers. Last year, Nebraska went 10-4 and came within seconds of winning the Big 12 Championship game against Texas before a trip to the Holiday Bowl. The most impressive thing about the Huskers in 2009 was their defense, which finished as the No. 1 scoring defense in the nation, allowing just 10.4 points per game. That defense was anchored by Ndamukong Suh's pass-rushing, but he was drafted No. 2 overall by the Detroit Lions, leaving a clear void on the line. They also lost safety Larry Asante, who was third on the team in solo tackles (42) and broke up seven passes while intercepting two. However, the defense does return cornerback Prince Amukamara (41 solo tackles, five interceptions) and defensive linemen Pierre Allen and Jared Crick, which should help the Huskers remain among the nation's best defenses. On offense, Nebraska ranked 75th in the nation but returns its leading rusher in Roy Helu Jr. (1,147 yards and 10 touchdowns) and leading receiver in Niles Paul (796 yards and four touchdowns). Helu will be joined in the backfield by Rex Burkhead, who will be used as a change of pace for the Huskers' run-heavy offense, but a second receiver will need to emerge. The biggest question on offense will be whether or not senior quarterback Zac Lee progresses from last year's up-and-down performance. If he can't, sophomore Cody Green will be asked to step up. If Nebraska can pull everything together, Bo Pelini and his team will again be vying for a conference championship, and perhaps even more. rF 4TME with Gainesville's fastest Internet COX High Speed InternetM -Share photos and videos in a snap with Gainesville's fastest speeds -Instant message and email family and friends with ease -Reliable, always-on connection with FREE security software powered by McAfee*' *Offer expires 8/31/10.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 Editorial Ath letes' Advocate Why college stars should be paid had a great career playing for the Gators and was able to transition to the pros as the 18th overall pick in the draft, but recently Maurkice Pouncey has been accused of accepting $100,000 from a sports agent's representative while he was still on the Gators' roster. He denies it, and coach Urban Meyer said at SEC Media Days that he believes Pouncey. It may turn out that Pouncey acted in his own interest, but we owe him the benefit of the doubt at the very least. But this news brings up a question as old as the NCAA itself: Should athletes be paid? College sports are romanticized as the last bastion of amateurism in American sports, where athletes are driven by passion for their sport and not a paycheck. But let's not kid ourselves. It's a business. Most sports aren't bringing in a lot of money, but nobody can deny the importance of the Gators football team as a financial asset to the school. A good team sells a lot of tickets, wins a lot of games and gets the university a nice check at the end of the year for playing in a big-name bowl game. Giving athletes a free education is simply not enough; most Florida residents already get that through programs like Bright Futures, and there are similar programs in other states. There are restrictions on how many hours a school can require athletes to practice, but the time players spend in the weight room or studying game footage usually doesn't factor into the tally. It all adds up to being more than a full-time job. Trying to tack on another 20 hours a week to earn some spending money is a hard pill to swallow, making back-alley deals from agents even more enticing. We aren't advocating it, but it happens. Miami Hurricanes players were getting under-the-table payouts from 2 Live Crew star Luther Campbell in the early '90s. Florida State Seminoles players were taken on all-you-can-carry Foot Locker shopping sprees. And let's not forget about those paid internships doled out to University of Southern California Trojans during Pete Carroll's reign. If the allegations against Pouncey prove to be true we would be more than disappointed but far from shocked. Getting through school on a shoestring budget is hard enough without the time commitment and responsibility of being on a team, but treating kids like indentured servants while their athletic feats are writing checks for Jumbotrons only adds insult to injury. It wouldn't take much money to keep kids afloat, and more than likely a small paycheck could help keep some student athletes in school through graduation day -not to mention it would probably cut down on those embarrassing stories of athletes stealing to get by, ahem, Cam Newton. It wouldn't compare to the amount of money athletes could make in the pros, but at least it would help. Maybe it would kill the magic a little bit, and maybe it would snuff out the amateurism -but it might do wonders for integrity. In the meantime we're keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that Pouncey is blameless. a ll te independent forida aligao Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson 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 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, 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?

This week, however, I write to lend a word of advice to all university students. Whatever grade, alma mater, or status as a student, listen up: Don't drink from the punch bowl. I consider myself a conservative. To me, politics is a matter of opinion and personal preference. In my world, you can believe what you want, and we can still have a decent and respectful conversation. Fortunately, this is the mindset of the typical, reasonable citizen and a tenet of American political philosophy that allows our nation to flourish and prosper. On the college campus, however, it becomes a different story. There is often only one tint to the worldview lens, and that is generally on the red end of the spectrum. The best advice I can offer, to both new students and institutionalized academics, is to make up your own mind about your political persuasions. I have come to understand that a college campus can be a tough place to be a conservative. For one thing, a lot of professors have lived for so long in an ideological world of paper-applicable theory that they have lost touch with the realities of the rest of society. I am not speaking about all UF professors -but some. Often, professors will not only teach from a leftist standpoint, they will demonize in-class disagreement. This is not free and open intellectual curiosity. It is rigid dogmatism, and I have encountered it all too often on our campus. We are all bound to run into this situation at some point in our college careers. Political science classes can be the most depressing when the professor's only purpose is to indoctrinate. The syllabus reaches no further than The New York Times editorials, and in-class movies are shown to stir emotions and lay guilt on the student for having been successful Bryan Griffin letters@alligator org enough to be in college. The worst ingredient of the bunch, however, is the rubber stamp, overtly outspoken liberal student who sits in the back of the classroom egging on the professor, preying on timid rebellions from independent-minded moderates, and lavishing a practiced vocabulary like it is an entitlement to speak endlessly. It all creates a recipe for complacency and stifles opposition to the college political machine. Even out of the classroom, we are forced to think in only one direction. Protests and demonstrations from "liberated" campus thinkers make every issue black and white, right and wrong, and leave no room for interpretation. You enter college and are told by the indoctrinated masses to be tolerant of intolerance. Don't back down. You are not close-minded for having a political persuasion that opposes your professor or the guy or girl shaving his or her head on Turlington Plaza. I value both my Republican and Democrat friends and the reasonable civic activist. Learn the facts, and listen to the issues. If you find yourself on either side of the political spectrum of your own accord and decision, congratulations. Welcome to the adult world. There are political extremists on both sides of the aisle. Professors of either persuasion can sometimes be drawn into molding adolescent minds to their political liking. More commonly, however, we find faculty willing to push students to the left. You are about your opinion. Stick by it, it makes you the person you are. Bryan Griffin is afirst-year law student. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

The House played scapegoat, and, whether intentional or not, it worked like something straight out of Tzu's playbook: "All warfare is based on deception." Apparently modern politics are, too. In the end, Crist lost some political capital-at least $55,000 worth, the cost of the failed session-but took some Republican blood down with him, though not nearly enough for a win. His loss is exacerbated by calling a session destined to fail and coming off looking like the move was simply political-an easy fix would have been to expand the session to more than one agenda item, a session to workshop the economic issues facing the Gulf Coast, something facing Floridians now. Maybe then Crist would have come out on top. The Republicans won this battle, but the question of who will win the war is far more intriguing .and one that might be answered come November. Brittany Fox is a political science senior. Guest column Arizona immigration law does not encourage racial profiling It is clear that Chris Moody, despite his attempts to seem educated and informed, is exactly the opposite. Like most opponents of Arizona's new immigration law, SB1070, he has clearly never even read the actual bill. Mr. Moody claims that if passed, this legislation would allow police officers to question anyone they wish about his or her immigration status, using race as the determining factor regarding who they specifically question. Yet, anyone who has actually read SB1070 will realize that such a statement is an egregious error. Within the bill, specific provisions outline two important factors that negate Mr. Moody's allegations. Here, I quote directly from SB1070's text: "For any lawful contact made by a law enforcement official or a law enforcement agency of this state (Arizona) or a law enforcement official or a law enforcement agency of a county, city, town or other political subdivision of this state where reasonable suspicion exists that the per. Wyatt Zinninger son is an alien who is unlawfully Speaking Out present in the United States, a reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person." What this means in layman's terms is that Arizona law enforcement cannot merely pull someone off the street because they suspect they are an illegal alien. A person must already be involved in some other police incident (typically by committing another crime) to be checked for his or her immigration status. This is contrary to Mr. Moody's assertion that, "legal immigrants henceforth need to have proof of citizenship at all times." Obviously, if a legal immigrant does not plan on committing a crime, there is no need to carry proof of his or her legal status. Case closed. But what about Mr. Moody's charge that this will invite racial profiling? If he actually read SB1070, he would find again that his assertions are misinformed. I quote again: "A law enforcement official or agency of this state or a county, city, town or other political subdivision of this state may not solely consider race, color or national origin in implementing the requirements of this subsection." If this isn't clear enough, I'll explain. It means that the "cops" can't question your status just because of your color or looks. Therefore, instead of various opponents of this law attempting to paint this legislation with the convenient brush of racism and bigotry in order to prevent the enactment of a legitimate state law, they should do a little more investigation into the liberal talking points they hear out of the mouths of Rachel Maddow and Keith Olberman.

Games you may have missed: 'Alan Wake' for Xbox 360 Horror game boasts exceptional narrative storyline By JOSH ISOM avenue contributing writer In a quarter swarming with high-profile sequels like "Red Dead Redemption" and "Super Mario Galaxy 2", it may have been easy to overlook an original game for something flashy, familiar and safe. To overlook "Alan Wake," however, is a fool's mistake that should be rectified immediately. Released on May 18, "Alan Wake" is a single-player, third-person psychological thriller developed by Remedy Entertainment, the minds behind the "Max Payne" series. The game was in development for more than five years, and the extra layers of polish show. "Alan Wake's" strongest asset is the story. Without spoiling too much, the game follows protagonist Alan Wake, a best-selling horror novelist who hasn't been able to write a word in more than two years. Attempting to alleviate his mental block, Wake travels with his wife, Alice, to the remote country town of Bright Falls. After settling into a rented cabin, a dark presence drags Alice's flailing body to the depths of the town's lake, leaving Wake to follow a breadcrumb trail of manuscript pages while fending off shadowy apparitions with a flashlight and a gun. The manuscript pages are the driving force of the plot. Narrated by Alan Wake's superb voice actor, Matthew Porretta ("Robin Hood: Men in Tights"), each page foreshadows -sometimes outright reveals -future events. It's a testament to Remedy's ability to set a scene when the event that unfurls feels fresh and invigorating, as if the player walked into it clueless and blindsided. The sense of atmosphere that permeates the town of Bright Falls is top-notch, particularly the contrast between night and day. In the enveloping darkness of the night, it's the little touches -the swish of a throwing axe as it pierces the howling night air; the twisted, garbled speech of the nightmare-inflicted townspeople -that instill a genuine sense of anxiety and paranoia. In the daylight, the bright light and the autumnal colors lull the player into a false sense of security, a point not lost on Remedy. Those who wish to explore are rewarded with some of the richest collectibles to date. TVs are scattered throughout various buildings that play episodes of the show "Night Springs," a spoof on the classic "The Twilight Zone." Radios can be found that broadcast a local, latenight talk show commenting on the events in Bright Falls. Those seeking a challenge by beating the game on the hardest difficulty are rewarded with additional manuscript pages to pour over. My only issue with the game are the wonky camera controls. Throughout the game, the camera hovers unattached behind the player's back, unable to decide which shoulder it wants to look over. This isn't a problem when using a flashlight because the beam of light acts as a targeting reticle. Without the flashlight, there's no way of telling where the player is aiming. The effect is disorienting and made collecting items and turning on radios an absolute pain. I found myself sprinting through these sections, not out of fear, but out of annoyance. An option to attach the camera view to the shoulder would improve gameplay. Other than completing the game on the hardest difficulty, "Alan Wake" is a relatively short game that offers very little replay value. If you're looking for one of the year's strongest contenders for the "BioShock" throne, and you have the money, go for it, but for those looking to stretch their $60 as far as it can go, rent the game instead. The game has been recieved favorably by critics. It has a score of 83 on Metacritic com, with an average user score of 8.7. The game's creators confirm sequels are in production. Despite its flaws, "Alan Wake" is an experience that should not be missed. The game is available now for the Xbox 360. R

THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 +ALLIGATOR, 9 Rum 101: 100 years of history, revelry and cocktails By RICHARD STEHLI avenue writer Rum. Australians overthrew their government for it. The Royal Navy got a daily ration of it until 1970. George Washington demanded it at his 1789 inauguration. Although it's been around for 100 years, we still drink it like there's no tomorrow. Unlike many other types of alcohol, there is no international standard for what constitutes a "rum." Each country sets its own guidelines for how rum is made, which allows for a good amount of variety and local tradition around the world. Generally speaking, rum is made from fermented sugar cane, either juice or molasses, distilled to at least 40 percent alcohol, and then aged in oak barrels. Within those very general guidelines, there is endless variety. Light rum, a specialty of Spanish-speaking countries and islands, has a clean, sweet taste and is good for subtle drink mixtures. English-speaking countries and islands tend to produce darker rums, aged in heavily charred barrels for a stronger, fuller molasses taste. French islands are known for their rhum agricole, made with sugar-cane juice for a natural sugarcane flavor. Distill rum to a high convorite for the summer is the pina cocentration, and it becomes 151. lada.

Pornographer worked for NASA before adult-film career uourresy OT IviKe buOn Mike "South" Strother and then-girlfriend Kayden Kross smile for the camera at the Flamingo Show Club in Dayton, Ohio, a regular hang-out spot for the porn producer, director and actor. By KAT BEIN avenue writer When Mike Strother was a kid growing up in the 60s, he wanted to be so manythings. He liked science. He pictured himself as a biologist, a chemist, an astronomer and finally an astronaut. Now, at the age of 52, he's doing something a little different. He's a producer, director and actor in his own amateur films, but he doesn't make movies like the ones they show atSundance. Mike Strother is an amateur pornographer. That's not to say that he doesn't know what he's doing. Strother, better known in the industry as Mike South, is a very decorated director. He's won, and been nominated for, dozens of Adult Video News awards, the Academy Awards of porn. One was for most outrageous scene, in which he filmed a girl-boy sex-capade smack dab in the middle of a rave in Tampa. "I'm 52 years old. Most of the girls I date are in their mid to early 20s," he said, "and I make money for it. It's kinda like, you know, I found my calling." Backtrack to before. That kid who wanted to be an astronaut got pretty close to his dream once. Before porn, Strother worked for NASA handling sexy things like relation databasemanagement and expert systems knowledge basesyour typical Al-type stuff. In his own words, he was a technogeek. He said he first gotthe idea to change jobs at a consumer electronics show in Los Angeles. The porn guys found out he lived in Atlanta and pestered him about what a "hotbed for pretty girls" he was sitting on. He said, at the time, the industry was begging for more amateur videos with scenes starring regular people and couples, not porn superstars. "Next thing I know, there I was shooting a girl and her boyfriend and he couldn't get it up," Strother said. "Finally he turns to me and says, 'She doesn't get paid if I can't perform, does she?' and he said 'Here, give me the camera and you f--k her."' That was back in 1993. Fortunately, the dudes at headquarters loved the video and especially loved Strother's "down-home Southern character." This led to a number of unique, Mike South amateur-video series, which led to a lot of money, success and young girls for Mr. Mike South. "Everything that I ever released, I always insisted that it had my name on it," he said. "I wanted to do that name-branding and that turned out to be a good move on my part." As the world moved into a new century, Strother realized the frontier of porn was online, and he now owns several websites. Some of his greatest successes are southernbukkake.com and stripperfacials.com. He admits there's a pattern and said, in the vastness of cyberspace, you've gotta have your niche. "Every girl is like 'I wanna do girl-girl' and I'm like 'Honey, I can't even give that away."' His most heavily trafficked site is actually his blog, mikesouth.com, which features no videos but divulges all that's good, bad and ugly with the industry. "I'm very well-known for reporting on the industry both good and bad," he said. "People check daily just to make sure they're not up there for something stupid. I get tons of death threats, that's always fun." Death threats or not, Strother is more than happy being Mike South. After 20 years in the business, he said he has no plans to retire anytime soon. "I'm havingtoo much fun doingwhat I'm doing."

Cat: A column of reverence befit for a feline king arely is a man so great that even the legends written about him fail to truly capture the magnificence of his existence. This is one of those situations. This is an especially unique case, however, because the great man I am writing about is not a man. Readers, put on your monocles and be seated in your favorite fireside chair, for I shall chronicle the life and times of my cat, Boots. Bootsington T. Cat ("Boots" for short) came to me a few years ago and has changed my life for the better, simply by the virtue of me ings (Boots is not a mere "indoor" cat, for no boundaries can hold his insatiable desire for adventure). However, during the aforementioned acclimatization, he eluded me and disappeared into the foliage. I anxiously waited for his return for a whole 24 hours, desperately attempting to avoid imagining a world bereft of his magnificent aura. As I finally began to come to peace with what I believed to be a terrible new future, Boots emerged from a dense thicket with a satisfied wanderlust and a mighty hunger for a good meal.

Just today, my roommate found himintimidated; he slept on the couch while Boots claimed his rightful position on the bed. My roommate's cowardice, while embarrassing, was the Dave Johnson correct response to Columnist the situation, as Boots would not have thought twice about beating him about the head and neck repeatedly. Recently, some sort of rapscallion queried if I should ever photograph Boots and caption it in the fashion of so-called "lolcats." Truly, it was a question only an imbecile would ask. from my hometown to my new abode here in self in conflict with Boots over who should Associating such poor grammar and decorum Gainesville, I brought him outside so that he claim the bed for his afternoon nap.

Besides, Boots would never ask if he "can has cheezburger." His taste is much more refined. If there were a caption to a photograph of the dignified Bootsington T. Cat, it should read: "Perchance I may sample some of your finest Beluga caviar?" Only then would the qualities of this fantastic feline be properly projected. Dearest readers, if you find yourself wondering why this normally juvenile writer is writing with such fine language, or why you suddenly feel the urge to wear a silk robe and listen to Mozart, know that it is simply a phenomenon that occurs when Boots is being discussed.

THURSDAY, JULY 22, 201 0*ALLIGATOR, 11 recipes Ct Ghost Chili Dawg is a test of intestinal fortitude, sanity By BRITTANY DAVIS avenue contributing writer The hot dog on my plate frightened me. But as I sat at Gator Dawgs on West University Avenue armed with a half gallon of milk, a loaf of bread and a box of Kleenex, I knew it was too late to back out. I was about to eat a Ghost Chili Dawg, topped with sauce from the bhut jolokia, known as the ghost pepper, the hottest in the world. "Dammit," I thought. "I should have passed the story off on someone else." It wasn't the first, or even the fifth time I'd had that thought. I was sorry a week prior, about three seconds after I told Avenue editor Jon Silman that I wanted to eat a ghost chili pepper and write about it. As with my childhood dreams of winning an Olympic gold medal or becoming an astronaut, the glory of the achievement had overshadowed my realization that it would be a giant pain in the ass. Spicy heat is measured in Scoville units, determined by the level of the nerve-stinging compound capsaicin in food. A particularly hot jalapeno is about 10,000 Scovilles. Ghost peppers can be 100 times hotter, at about 1 million. Once I started research for the article, my regret turned to flat-out fear. I watched one YouTube video after another of people eating the pepper. Some vomited. Others curled on the floor in agony. Wikipedia told me the pepper is grown in India, where police use it in smoke bombs and hand grenades. It's great for controlling riots and flushing terrorists from their hideouts. I read that the more spice you eat the more your body can tolerate, so I began to put Tabasco on everything. Rice and Tabasco. Toast and Tabasco. Avocado-and-cream-cheese sushi and Tabasco. A woman in India earned a place in the Guinness World Records by eating 51 ghost peppers in two minutes. Afterward, she smeared handfuls of the seeds in her eyes. Candy Britt, who owns Gator Dawgs with her husband Otis, said she ordered the pepper from New York after she saw it on the television show "Man v. Food." "My son really likes spicy food, and he wanted to try it," she said. The Britt's daughter, 9-year-old Gabrielle, said the ghost chili sauce, which includes olive oil and butter, was "freakin' hot." Otis said he considered asking customers to sign a waiver before eating the pepper. Instead, he wrote on his price board that the item is "XXXXtra hot." Desperate for a pepper-eating partner, I asked Otis to eat with me. "Hell no," he laughed. Instead, his 18-year-old son Keary and Alligator writer Andrew Pantazi volunteered. With the Alligator staff laughing in the background, the three of us ate our hot dogs in silence. It took me seven glasses of milk, one slice of Wonder Bread and 18 extra-soft Kleenex to stomach ached. But nob get through half a hot dog. My eyes or had a seizure. Now, a watered, my ears popped and my only symptom is the gas. Harrison Diamond Alligator Staff ody vomited day later, my N Andrew Pantazi joined Brittany Davis and Keary Britt in trying the Ghost Chili Dawg. After downing his portion in a single mouthful, Pantazi realizes his horrifying error in judgement.

Sports THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Pounceys deny allegations Meyer meets with Saban By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achia ng@alligator org BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -Maurkice Pouncey has his story and he's sticking to it. After being accused of accepting $100,000 from a representative of an agent, Maurkice and the Gators have been silent on the issue. On Wednesday, Florida coach Urban Meyer and the Pouncey brothers used Southeastern Conference media days to finally address the potential NCAA violation. When Meyer was alerted of the allegation about six weeks ago, he immediately confronted Maurkice, who responded, "that didn't happen." Maurkice's twin brother, Mike Pouncey, also denied any NCAA violations. "I have completely cooperated with the investigation and answered any and all questions put to me. I did not accept $100,000, it is an absolutely ridiculous claim." Maurkice Pouncey former Gators center "I talked to my brother and it's not true," Mike said. Maurkice took his claim even further on Wednesday. "I have completely cooperated with the investigation and answered any and all questions put to me," he said in a prepared statement. "I did not accept $100,000, it is an absolutely ridiculous claim." Even though Maurkice gave his twin brother a Cadillac Escalade after being selected in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike was never worried about his eligibility for the upcoming season. He is more concerned about his family's reputation. "I feel bad because it ruins somebody's name because of somebody who really doesn't know who me and my brother really are," Mike said. "It's hard." A recent string of potential violations involving agents has arisen this offseason, prompting a quick meeting on the issue between Meyer and Alabama coach Nick Saban, who learned on Wednesday of reports that Crimson Tide defensive end Marcell Dareus has allegedly been declared ineligible after attending a player-agent party in South Beach. But in reality, Meyer believes there is little a coach could do to prevent these types of incidents. "You can't," he said. "For a coach to figure out who a runner is in a nightclub at 2:30 a.m. -I've been asleep for four hours." Saban even went on to propose that agents, who affect the eligibility of a player, should have their license revoked for a year. But that still doesn't stop an agent's runner from lurking around campus. "It's an epidemic right now, an epidemic that needs to get fixed," Meyer said. UF TAKES AWAY HAMMOND'S SCHOLARSHIP After being arrested on June 13 SEE MEDIA, PAGE 20 Available from Commercial News Providers I UF lands five-star recruit in transfer By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@a IIigator org Even though National Signing Day was in February, Florida's 2010 recruiting class added another key piece Wednesday. Chris Martin, a five-star defensive end out of Grandview High in Aurora, Colo., who was enrolled at California, announced his plans to transfer to UF. "I would like to thank everyone who has been supportive of me through my crazy mental episodes," Martin said on his Facebook page. "A special thank you to my mother and father who have supported me no matter what. I love you both. God has granted me a second chance. A chance I cannot Football mess up. With that said. Go Gators. Thank you to everyone and all the coaches who showed their interest in me." Martin, who is ranked second among strongside defensive ends and 18th overall in the class of 2010 by Rivals.com, committed to California in Dec. 2009 and signed his letter of intent in February. The Oakland native was enrolled at the Bay Area school SEE RECRUIT, PAGE 20 Pimpin' is too easy for agents, mon 'm about to pen a sentence previously unthinkable for a UF student who grew up in South Florida supporting the Dolphins. (OK, I'm going to "type" it. Technology really gets in the way of that expression.) Nick Saban is 100 percent right. Yeah, I said it. I applaud the rigid stance he took against NFL agents and money runners at Southeastern Conference Media Days on Wednesday. Not all agents, of course, just the ones who give active college players money and benefits before their amateur status and scholarships have worn off. "I think if an agent does anything to affect the eligibility of a college football player, his license ey runners ought to be suspended for a year," Saban said. "That's the only way Kyle Maistri we're goKyle Points ing to stop kma istri@alIlIigator org what's happening out there because it's ridiculous and it's entrapment of young people at a very difficult time in their life. And it's very difficult for the institutions and NCAA to control it and it's very unfair to college football."

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2010 WR loses scholarship MEDIA, from page 19 because of a DUI, wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. is receiving even further punishment. On Wednesday, Meyer said that Hammond, who was expected to compete for playing time at the wide receiver position this season, is currently not on the team and has had his scholarFoot ball ship taken away. He is expected to return to the team, but under different circumstances. "(Hammond) will have to pay his own way and will have to earn a spot like every other person who would like to be a member of Florida football," Meyer said. "There will be playing time taken away from him." Martin to redshirt, expects KYLE, from page 19 uations come to light, the football player is long gone, going unpunished along with the agent who broke the rules, and often the law. Florida coach Urban Meyer supported Saban. "On a student-athlete losing a season of eligibility or games, that's significant. That affects their livelihood, name, reputation, the school's reputation," Meyer said. "The other end of that has to be severely punished, as well." It is worth noting that Alabama and Florida are currently being investigated for players -Marcell Dareus and Maurkice Pouncey, respectively -taking improper benefits from an agent. But this is not a case of sour grapes. It would be a shame to dismiss what these coaches are saying simply because their schools might be perceived as "dirty programs." Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi went as far as to say that, for his money, Alabama is the most consistent cheater in all of college football over the last 20 years. I would argue that the vast majority of programs break the rules consistently, and it would be nearly impossible to single Alabama out simply because they have been caught the most often. But even if that were true about Alabama, Saban made a point that should be heard and seriously considered by the NCAA, the NFL and the NFLPA. Everyone will remember who won that vacated bowl game or returned Heisman regardless of whether or not it remains in the record books. The only real way to stop this is to start punishing the agents, or even the players once they get to the NFL, perhaps suspending them for a few games? "I don't think it's anything but greed that is creating it right now on behalf of the agents. Agents that do this, I hate to say this, but how are they any better than a pimp?" Saban asked rhetorically. As long postulated by many, and eventually confirmed by Dave Chappelle: Pimpin' ain't easy. Though, these rule-breaking agents might beg to differ. to be used in hybrid defensive role in 2011 RECRUIT, from page 19 when he informed coaches of his intent to transfer on Monday. "My decision to transfer definitely does not reflect on the football program or the academics at Cal," Martin said in a statement released by California. Martin, who at 6 feet 4 inches and 240 pounds is listed as a defensive end but could also play linebacker, becomes the 28th member of the Gators' highly touted recruiting class, which Rivals.com ranks as No. 2 in the nation. "I decided to go with what I originally felt was right for me back in recruiting," Martin said in an interview Wednesday. Martin said he initially backed away from Florida during recruitment because of Urban Meyer's health situation and because former Gators defensive coordinator Charlie Strong left Florida to become the head coach at Louisville. "That kinda freaked me out when that happened so I went with one of my other plans and went to Cal," he said. "But there were just distractions at home that I needed to get away from. I've been through a lot, and I've been to a lot of schools, but I'm blessed to have a second chance and ma ke the most of it now at Florida." The decision to transfer to UF brings to a conclusion an intriguing, if not odd, recruiting process for Martin that rivals that of Matt Elam, another 2010 recruit who changed his mind multiple times before finally signing with the Gators. Martin originally committed to play for Notre Dame before the beginning of his senior season, but visited California in December and decided to decommit from the Fighting Irish. He signed his LOI with the Bears in February before requesting his release from the school this week and announcing his decision to transfer to UF. Because he was enrolled at California before announcing his decision to come to Florida, Martin will have to redshirt this season, but will be eligible to play in 2011. However, when he is eligible for the Gators, Martin already has an idea of how he will be used on defense. "The plan is for me to be a hybrid linebacker and defensive end, kinda in between like the Brandon Spikes role," Martin said. "That's the plan for me, but things can change and I'm willing to adapt to that change."
