Local Muslims



say violence



won't solve



Dove problem

0 ANTI-VIOLENCE GROUPS ARE COMING TOGETHER
TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT THREATS AGAINST THE
CHURCH DO NOT REPRESENT ALL MUSLIMS.

By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Staff Writer

Amid the controversy surrounding the Dove World Out-
reach Center's plan to burn the Quran on Sept. 11, Islamic
groups have been advising Muslims to not let their frustra-
tion turn into violence.
Ziad Ghanimi, spokesman for the Gainesville Muslim
Initiative, said the local Muslim community condemns any
form of violence against the church's pastor, Terry Jones, or
its members.
"It's counterproductive to be violent," he said. "We should
try to engage in a discussion."
Ghanimi said an attack on the church would only bolster
Jones' stance.
"Violence will not make him change his mind," he said. "It
will just confirm his position - especially if
those that are violent are Muslims."
The condemnation comes after The
Gainesville Sun reported receiving a death
threat directed toward Jones Tuesday eve-
ning.
According to the article, the Sun gave the
Jones letter to the Gainesville Police Department,
who is investigating the matter.
In a statement released by The American Muslim Associa-
tion of North America on Wednesday, the group condemns
the Quran burning but denounces violent reaction to the
event.
"We would like to remind that Islam calls for vigorous
condemnation of such hateful acts, but always within the
margins of law and order," the statement said.
The statement was signed by 15 imams - Islamic leaders
- and Ahmed Al Mehdawi, president of the Islamic Center
of Gainesville.
Sofian Zakkout, director of the American Muslim Associa-
tion of North America, said Muslims should exhibit tolerance
and control because violence only weakens America's sense
of unity.
"Our enemies would be looking at us and laughing at us,"
he said. "We would be doing their job for them."

Bed-bug invasions on the rise


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Staff Writer

Students may have something to
be itchy about.
Bed bug infestations are becom-
ing more and more common on col-
lege campuses, crawling between the
sheets with students and biting them
while they sleep.
Their numbers have exploded
in the past five years, said Wayne
Walker, senior pest control techni-
cian for UF's Department of Hous-
ing and Residence Education.
"Most of us in the industry believe
it's because of increased international
travel and truly a lack of awareness
by most people that it is a problem,"
Walker said. "Most of the bed bug is-
sues are brought in by people travel-
ing in hotels and motels and ending


up back in their residence or them
picking up used furniture."
A bed bug is a small, blood-suck-
ing insect whose adult form is around
a quarter-inch in length, Walker said.
The bug is from the same family as
stinkbugs, and if a lot of them are in
one room, there is a noticeable smell.
Though the bugs are not known
to transmit any diseases, their bite
has been known to
On cause an uncomfortable
Campus itch and, in some cases,
an allergic reaction.
Walker, as well as Roberto Pereira,
another UF bed bug expert, said the
problem has not affected UF's dormi-
tories as much as it has affected other
campuses.
In the past five years, there have
been about four bed bug occurrences
in the UF dormitories, Walker said.


However, graduate students have
not been so lucky.
About four bed bug in-

How To Spot Bed Bugs:
* Look for black spots on linens.
* Pull sheets back; look around
the box spring.
* Check around the bed.
* Beware if the room has a smell
similar to that of a stinkbug.

How To Avoid Bed Bugs:
* Check your bags for bed bugs
while traveling.
* Beware of bed bugs in used
furniture.
* Call your local pest-control
agency if you spot bed bugs.

Police say man leads hour-long chase in dump truck


SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Police said a 37-year-
old man driving a dump truck led them on
an hour-long chase over roads, rails and
yards in the Syracuse area that ended with
the suspect being shot.
The Onondaga County Sheriff said Stan-
ley Lostumbo jumped into a dump truck
Tuesday night after being accused of steal-
ing from vending machines at a mall.
Police pursued the truck on a highway,
through backyards and school grounds and


down railroad tracks at speeds up to 65 mph
before stopping it at a barricade in East Syra-
cuse.
Police said Lostumbo reversed the truck
and hit a sheriff's vehicle and officers fired,
apparently striking Lostumbo in the shoul-
der. He was briefly hospitalized for minor
injuries.
Deputies were questioning Lostumbo. It
was not clear if he had a lawyer.

UF info center opens


at Santa Fe College


By DEZMA GAINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF and Santa Fe College stu-
dents seeking an online degree
have a new UF resource available
to them.
The grand opening of the UF @
Santa Fe Center, also known as the
Gator Den, took place Wednesday
morning.
Located in Building H of Santa
Fe's Northwest campus at 3000
NW 83rd Street, the Gator Den is a
partnership between UF and Santa
Fe.
The goal of the facility is to pro-
vide easier access to online degree
programs and help prepare trans-
fer students for entrance into UF.
UF is currently offering online
degree programs in business ad-
ministration and sports manage-


ment through Santa Fe, but more
will be added as the new program
expands.
Steve Dorman, dean of the UF
College of Health and Human Per-
formance, said only a small per-
centage of adults in Florida have a
bachelor's degree.
Because of these statistics, Dor-
man said, it is important to make
education more available to resi-
dents across the state of Florida.
"This is two government agen-
cies getting it right for the better-
ment of Floridians," Dorman said.
UF paid for the building's reno-
vation, which cost about $200,000,
according to Santa Fe's website, sf-
college.edu. UF and Santa Fe will
split the cost of a full-time adviser/
recruiter, who will give informa-
tion about UF's distance-learning
programs and transferring to UF.

festations are reported per year in
graduate housing, Walker said.
Off campus, the number of cases per year is
even greater, though the bed bug problem is
not as bad in Florida as it is in other states,
Pereira said.
Students should immediately notify on-
campus pest control if they discover bed bugs


in dormitories or graduate housing.
Bed bugs, particularly young ones, are
difficult to see with the naked eye. Baby bed
bugs are clear and about the size of a period
on a printed paper, Pereira said.
When bed bugs feed, they defecate, he
said. So, the best way to look for bed bugs is
to look for black spots on linens.
Pereira, along with Walker and another pro-
fessor, Phillip Koehler, came up with a simple


solutionto thebed-bug problem - cookthem.
They put up walls around infested items,
such as blankets, with Styrofoam panels, and
then place a heater or fan inside
On to create, in effect, an oven.
CampuS They then monitor the tem-
perature inside the "oven" until
all the bed bugs are dead.
Though the design is simple and could be
built at home, Pereira advised potential home


bed bug warriors to leave it to the experts.
Bed bugs are typically harmless aside
from causing an uncomfortable itching sen-
sation, although Walker said bed bugs could
be harmful in other ways.
"When you share your bed with a bed
bug, it's a traumatic experience of sharing
your bed with something that feeds on you,"
he said. "So the trauma of it all and the men-
tal anguish is an issue."

Fair touts benefits of alternative transDortation


By REBECCA ASTORGA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Freshman Xavier Hanson didn't
break a sweat during his bike ride out-
side the Reitz Union on Wednesday
morning.
He said he felt like he was doing
half the work.
The battery helping to propel the bi-
cycle did the rest.
This Sanyo Eneloop bicycle was the
newest display at the third annual Al-
ternative Transportation Fair hosted by
the UF Office of Sustainability.
Organizations such as Gators for a
Sustainable Campus, Sustainable UF
and the American Solar Energy Soci-
ety set up tables at the fair to hand out
brochures and help promote _i,,.-, -
efficient transportation alternatives.
The fair was held to help promote
the One Less Car Challenge, which en-
courages students and faculty to use al-
ternative transportation through Nov.
19.
Ashley Pennington, outreach coor-
dinator for the Office of Sustainability,
said she hoped the fair helped students
and faculty become more aware of the
many benefits of alternative transpor-


station, such as riding the bus, biking or
:ill 1 ', to school.
"By not taking a car to places, peo-
ple don't have to pay for gas money
and struggle to find parking spaces.
They can also help the environment by
helping to reduce pollution in the air,"
Pennington said.
The One Less Car Challenge is also
directed toward making people more
physically active.
UF Senior Veronica Urdaneta said
riding her bike to school is a simple
form of exercise for her.
"I'm not only helping out the envi-
ronment, but I'm also doing good to
my body by riding my bike around on
campus," she said.

erasers and other goodies from the dif-

showcased Photon, a solar-powered
tricycle.
"There are so many options to get
around campus besides driving a car,
and Photon is proof that getting around
can be interesting," said UF senior
Sammy Shams.

Local used-car prices a bargain


* NATIONAL USED CAR PRICES HAVE GONE UP.

By SAMANTHA SHAVELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Used-car prices are increasing nationally, but Gainesville
consumers can still find good deals.
Research from Edmunds.com, an online resource that
estimates car values, shows that the prices of used cars in-
creased by about 10 percent nationally since last July.
But Ramon Young, a car salesman at Gatorland Pre-
Owned Superstore, said he's seen no change in prices.
"People find used cars less expensive," he said. "They
do research on new vehicles so we have to keep our prices
down."
Today, the estimated national price for a three-year-old


vehicle is $19,248, an increase of $1,800 from last year's
price. And in the last 12 months, used-car and -truck prices
increased 17 percent and some sport utility vehicles are up
30 percent since last July, according to the United States Bu-
reau of Labor Consumer Price Index Summary. The spike in
prices may be a result of consumers' economic confidence.
"A lack of confidence in the economy is driving more
people to used cars, putting upward pricing pressure on a
limited supply of vehicles," said Joe Spina, a senior analyst
for Edmunds.com, in a press release.
David Denslow, a UF economics professor thinks the in-
crease in prices is also partly due to the Cash for Clunkers
program, which paid people to trade in their old cars for
new ones and thus increased the supply of used cars.
"Now that that's gone, people are holding onto their old
cars so there's not much supply and it is holding up prices,"
Denslow said.

Area Internet may


get Google boost

By SHANEECE DIXON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville Internet providers like Cox Commu-
nications, Gainesville DSL and Gator.Net advertise
lightning-fast service; however, consumers are find-
ing that their Internet access isn't always as fast as it
is advertised to be.
A new report by the Federal Communications
Commission shows that users are paying for speeds
of 7-8 megabits per second on average, but are receiv-
ing only about half the speed they expect, usually
around 4 Mbps.
"Cable modems can be problematic," said Jeff
Shelton, a customer service support specialist at
Gator.Net. "They can be affected by the weather and
humidity. It's the same thing with DSL."
While advertisers are able to use the maximum
speeds that their service may reach, service can slow
down because of net congestion -
Around a long delay between the server's
Gainesville transmission and the consumer's
reception of information.
Though many users may not
realize their Internet service is slower than adver-
tised, some residents are trying to change the way
Gainesville receives its Internet.
Dave Pokorney of UF Computing & Networking
Services is campaigning for Google to build a fiber
network in Gainesville, which would deliver data
transfer rates of 1 gigabit per second.
"I'm very hopeful that it comes to Gainesville,"
Pokorney said. "This will make Cox and DSL look
like dial-up does now."
Though many cities are competing to be the home
of Google's gigabit fiber, Gainesville is a strong con-
tender with help from groups like Gig 4 Gainesville.
If users want to check their Internet speed at home,
they can test it at www.speedtest.net.

Southwest Rec debuts state-of-the-art hand scanners


By JESSICA KAUFMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Melissa Pender can be described as a
gym regular. Five days a week, she, like
many other UF students, travels to South-
west Recreation Center to take advantage
of all the state-of-the-art equipment.
However, Pender has been plagued with
a recurring problem that has hindered her
workout plans-a lack of ID. Without her
Gator 1 Card, Pender can't enter the gym.
"I must have lost mine at least three
times since freshman year," said Pender, a
journalism junior.
Now, as part of Southwest Rec's recent


multi-million dollar renovation, students
such as Pender won't need to worry about
missing a workout due to a lost student
ID.
Instead of waiting in line to get their
Gator 1 Cards swiped, students can enter
Southwest Rec by punching in their UF
ID numbers and placing their hand on the
gym's newly installed HandKeys.
David Bowles, the director of the De-
partment of Recreational Sports at UF,
said the staff had to undergo training to
learn the HandKey software.
In less than two weeks, more than
10,000 students have enrolled in the sys-
tem to use the HandKeys, said Pamela


"These Hand Keys have the po-
tential to be very useful in a lot of
applications around campus."
David Bowles
Director, Department of
Recreational Sports

Hightower, coordinator of operations for
UF's Department of Recreational Sports.
Hightower said about 400 new students
enroll a day.
With thousands of hands touching each
machine a day some students have ex-
pressed concerns about the sanitation of
the HandKeys.


"I never really thought about the clean-
liness until I saw a really sweaty guy use
the HandKey right before me," said Matt
Heller, a freshman at UF.
Hightower said these students do not
have to worry. The surfaces of the Hand-
Keys are built with BioCote, an anti-micro-
bial surface.
The HandKeys also undergo special-
ized weekly cleaning.
Although the technology is relatively
new to UF, Southwest Rec officials remain
optimistic the new feature will catch on.
"These HandKeys have the potential
to be very useful in a lot of applications

Police kill hostage-taker at Discover Channel headquarters


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A man who railed against the
Discovery Channel's environmental
programming for years burst into
the company's headquarters with at
least one explosive device strapped
to his body Wednesday and took
three people hostage at gunpoint
before police shot him to death, of-
ficials said.
The hostages - two Discovery
Communications employees and a
security guard - were unhurt after
the four-hour standoff. Montgom-
ery County Police Chief Thomas
Manger said tactical officers moved
in after officers monitoring the gun-
man on building security cameras
saw him pull out a handgun and
point it at a hostage.
An explosive device on the gun-
man's body detonat-
National ed when police shot
News him, Manger said.
Police were trying
to determine whether two boxes
and two backpacks the gunman had
also contained explosives.
A law enforcement official speak-
ing on condition of anonymity be-
cause the investigation was ongoing
said authorities had identified James
J. Lee as the likely suspect. Police had
not released the gunman's identity.
County Police and firefighters
Wednesday night looked at a lap-
top screen that showed an image of
a body lying face-up, surrounded
by blood. Authorities also sent in a
robot to disarm the explosive on the
gunman's body. Police Capt. Paul


Starks said the suspect had shot a
gun at least once. He also said police
believe the suspect was acting alone
but are investigating all possibili-
ties.
NBC News reported that after its
producers called Discovery's gen-
eral number, a man identifying him-


self as James J. Lee got on the phone
and said he had a gun and several
bombs.
"I have several bombs strapped
to my body ready to go off. I have a
device that if I drop it, if I drop it, it
will ... explode," the man told NBC.
He said he built the bombs in


about three weeks. "I did a lot of
research. I had to experiment," he
said.
Manger said the suspect held the
hostages in the lobby area of the first
floor. Authorities said they will me-
thodically go through the building
and identify any suspicious items.


Police push people back from near the front of the headquarters of the Discovery Channel networks
building while a gunman, James Lee, held three hostages inside in Silver Spring, Md., on Wednesday.


Manger said police spent several
hours negotiating with the armed
man after he entered the suburban
Washington building about 1 p.m.
None of the 1,900 people who work
in the building were hurt, and most
made it out before the standoff end-
ed.
Lee was convicted of disorderly
conduct for a protest he organized
outside Discovery's offices in Febru-
ary 2008. According to court records,
he paid homeless people to carry
signs and set off a scramble when
he threw fistfuls of cash into the air,
calling it "just trash."
Lee served two weeks in jail af-
ter his arrest during which doctors
evaluated his competency to stand
trial.
County State's Attorney John
McCarthy said Lee was ordered to
stay 500 feet away from Discovery
headquarters as part of his proba-
tion, which ended two weeks ago. A
magistrate ordered a doctor's evalu-
ation, but the result was not imme-
diately available Wednesday.
"The Discovery Channel produc-
es many so-called 'Environmental
Programs' -"j-'1:'- -.11, there to save
the planet," Lee said in an ad he took
out in a Washington newspaper to
promote the protest. "But the truth
is things are getting WORSE! Their
programs are causing more harm
than good."
David Leavy, Discovery's execu-
tive vice president for corporate af-
fairs, said all employees had been
accounted for. "We're relieved that it
ended without any harm to our em-
ployees," he said.

Barack the boat

Obama undertakes

Mid-East peace talks
You can't say the man doesn't have goals.
As President Obama announced the end of the Amer-
ican combat mission in Iraq from the fancy-schmancy,
newly decorated Oval Office in his address to the nation Tues-
day evening, an onslaught of new issues came forward.
Topping that list were revamping the economy because ap-
parently stimulus packages, national rebate programs and fi-
nancial bailouts were not enough to get us to buy stuff; success-
fully ending America's mission in Afghanistan; and ending the
nebulously defined War On Terror.
And if that wasn't enough to fill one man's plate, President
Obama wants to, for real this time, bring peace to the Middle
East.
Is it us or are these peace pow-wows becoming more and
more like trying to sit through "The Neverending Story" every
year?
We're with you, Mr. President. We love peace more than
$5 footlongs (how's that for a stimulus plan?). In fact, we feel
the world could use maybe even a little bit more of that whole
peace thing.
But how realistic are these talks?
It doesn't typically spell out a clean agreement when both
warring parties are largely opposed to substantial compromise.
Since the beginning of time, well, no, more like since the
U.N. bullied its way through the Middle East and gave Israel its
own state, our newspapers, radios and TVs have been plagued
with reports of war in the Middle East.
We can only hope President Obama has a few tricks up his
sleeve because that's exactly what the world needs right now -
a little magic.


Ta-Ta Tussel


Sometimes it's funny to
remember that states
like South Dakota still
exist when they're brought
into the news.
And sometimes it's even
funnier to read why they're in
the news.
This week, a high school
near Sioux Falls, S.D., banned
a bracelet aiming to promote
cancer awareness - a bracelet
that does so with the slogan "I
love boobies."
The brazen bracelets have
caused controversy in other
states across the country, in-
cluding our very own Sun-
shine State.
The South Dakota girl ac-
cused of a major dress-code
violation worse than those
"Female Body Inspector" T-
shirts has a history of breast
cancer in her family, and she
says she was simply trying to
bring attention to the issue af-
flicting her family.
The issue at hand is not


whether people love boobies
- clearly a vast majority do
- but whether school-aged
children maintain their right
to free speech within a public
school setting.
Clearly, they don't.
This very same issue be-
came national news when
Gainesville children came to
school with T-shirts that said
"Islam is of the Devil."
And although the issues of
boobies and supposed Satanic
Muslims are a little bit differ-
ent, the concept is the same.
We doubt a little bosom-lov-
ing bracelet action distracted
students, and we support the
cause behind the bracelets as
well as a student's right to ex-
press their beliefs as they so
choose.
All in all, we want to save
the Ta Tas as much as anyone
else. And, really, there's not
much more to write about
South Dakota if we're not talk-
ing about Mount Rushmore.

Column

Christian philosophies shaped America


allow me to begin by lobbing a grenade into the mine
field.
I believe our country's founding is inseparable
from Judeo-Christian philosophies.
However, it is also an American's right to hold himself to
the tenets, philosophies and practices of any religion, spiritu-
ality or non-religion he deems appropriate.
Recently, the "Restoring Honor" rally was hosted in Wash-
ington, D.C., with reports of more than 100,000 people from
all demographics and backgrounds attending. The speakers
reminded those listening to rely on God for relief from the
burdens of life and associated hardships.
However, the fiery debate still rages between those who
seek to eradicate all traces of Judeo-Christian philosophy
from our government and those who seek to preserve those
principles.
To separate the idea of civil rights from the Judeo-Chris-
tian principle of moral obligation and the idea of a higher
power is to devalue our liberty as Americans. As Alexander
Hamilton argued, to separate the two concepts is "the most
manifest violation of justice." Espoused by Enlightenment
philosophers such as John Locke and as stated in the Decla-
ration of Independence, the rights to life and liberty are or-
dained from no less a power than God.
A 2007 Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life study
found that about 75 percent of Americans are either religious
or take no offense to public mentions of God on currency,
monuments, etc. However, we still find our legal system
entangled in cases to remove "under God" from the Pledge
of Allegiance and to ban Bible study clubs from public high
schools.
Yes, the classic separation-of-church-and-state argument
has to come into play somewhere. Let's deconstruct this ar-
gument. The exact term "separation of church and state" is
found nowhere within America's founding documents. In-
stead, Thomas Jefferson used the phrase to alleviate the con-
cerns of a Baptist ministry that America would be prone to


adopt a specific Christian denomina-
tion. Jefferson makes the same point I
would advocate by using that phrase.
Essentially, he points out there is to be
no specihfied or accepted practice of re-
ligion by the government.
Bryan Griffin This does not mean, however,
letters@alligator org our government cannot adhere to
the Judeo-Christian philosophy in its
operation. The wording of the First
Amendment supports such an idea, as well. The estabhlish-
ment and freedom of exercise clauses prevent specification
on the part of the government.
At this point, I must caution us to the danger of separat-
ing God from government. If the secularist movement pre-
vails and the idea of "nalienable natural rights as granted by
God" is defeated, then what is to prevent the reinstitution of
slavery or discrimination at the behest of a majority? When
men are left to determine the rights of one another, those
rights are in serious jeopardy.
In summation, this issue is of paramount importance to
each of us, and at such a tumultuous point in American his-
tory we should all be standing up for the continued recogni-
tion of our nalienable natural rights, as endowed by God.
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in his famous "Letter
from a Birmingham Jail," referred to "our constitutional and
God-given rights." In that same letter, he also said those en-
gaged in the civil rights movement were "standing up for
what is best in the American dream and for the most sacred
values in our Judeo-Christian heritage."
If we continue to diminish the role of religion in our pohliti-
cal dialogue and exclude its manifestations from our public
affairs, we will lose the essential foundation of our American
rights and freedoms. Our natural rights are our foundation,
our backbone, our promise and our future.

Single-entry visa policy for


some int'l students unjust


I _CAI BELIEVE TME
, UTPOLL11 6 ... i
0 T


Seyyed Amin
Terouhid
Speaking Out


this is a recip-
rocal policy in
response to the
same situation
Americans face


As a UF student, you might take
it for granted that you can visit
your loved ones whenever you
like. It takes but a single call to arrange
a visit, a simple drive or, at most, a
flight or two. Even if you are an inter-
national student, you can plan in ad-
vance to visit your family back home
during summer or semester breaks.
But this is not true for all UF stu-
dents. Being able to visit their families
back home is far out of the imagina-
tion and reach for some international
students. This is not because of finan-
cial difficulties, but instead because of
their U.S. visa type.
Iranian students are subject to sin-
gle-entry U.S. visas only. This means
they are only allowed to enter the
United States once. If they decide to
leave, for any reason, they must re-ap-
ply for a U.S. visa, which means going
through a long and cumbersome ad-
ministrative process again that might
take anywhere from a few weeks to a
year.
Iranian students who dared to trav-
el outside the U.S. during their stud-
ies here, have, many times, ended up
losing a semester or two, or even their
assistantship positions simply because
of this unfair policy. Some even end
up saying goodbye to their unfinished
studies in the U.S. What makes the
problem even worse is the U.S. has no
embassy in Iran, an issue that forces
students to travel to a third country in
order to renew their visas.
This policy is a result of the bitter
relationship between the U.S. and Ira-
nian governments, which has roots in
historical events, including the CIA-
backed coup in 1953 that overthrew the
democratically elected prime minister
of Iran and the hostage-taking crisis at
the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 fol-
lowing the Islamic revolution in Iran.
Some American politicians say


UWire

John McCain doesn't represent the definition of 'maverick'


The blare of heavy artillery could be heard across Art-
zona last week as the state's Republican senatorial pri-
mary candidates battled for their political lives. When
the final rounds were fired and the smoke had cleared, one
man emerged victorious.
Vietnam War veteran, 2008 Republican presidential nomi-
nee and four-term United States Sen. John McCain claimed vic-
tory in last week's primary. He will now face off against Demo-
cratic nominee Rodney Glassman in hopes of serving his fifth,
and quite possibly final, term as Arizona's senator.
Unfortunately, McCain's triumph in this primary election
has proven that he is willing to do anything, perhaps even sell
his soul to the devil, if it will forward his political career. It is
clear that the man who, r-.:., .. .i.. 1, declared himself a "mav-
erick" is no longer worthy of the title.
Fervent anti-incumbent sentiment and distrust of the
Washington establishment has made this election cycle espe-
cially difficult for politicians like John McCain, who has served
more than 20 years in Congress. The fact that McCain was once
among the most moderate members of the Republican Party
has only added fuel to the flame.
The GOP is currently undergoing a purge. Moderate
members of the party, such as McCain, are being ousted and
replaced by more conservative and, in some cases, more radi-


Nyles Kendall cal right-wing candidates. This purge
UWire is typified by the emergence of the Tea
Party, a far-right, anti-big government
political movement whose agenda,
among other things, includes promoting racial intolerance and
finding the President's Kenyan birth certificate.
Any Republican incumbent seeking re-election who is not
Tea Party-certified faces the risk of losing his or her conserva-
tive credentials as well as a seat in the legislature. McCain and
his opponent J.D. Hayworth both received Tea Party endorse-
ments, but apparently McCain didn't believe being endorsed
by a cabal of conspiratorial racists was enough to win a re-
election.
In order to appease his political base, which has been cor-
rupted by the Tea Party movement, McCain has disavowed
many of the political positions that set him apart from his
counterparts. His stances on climate change, cap and trade, im-
migration, campaign finance reform and "don't ask, don't tell"
gained him the reputation as one of the most centrist mem-
bers of the Republican Party, though he has flip-flopped on
nearly all of these issues now that an election cycle has rolled
around.
McCain's sudden change of heart on the issue of immigra-
tion and amnesty caused a kerfuffle. In fact, the Hayworth


campaign made amnesty the centerpiece of their anti-McCain
crusade. But oddly enough, McCain now claims he never sup-
ported amnesty.
Apparently he wants his constituents to forget that he co-
sponsored a comprehensive immigration reform bill with
the very liberal Ted Kennedy that proposed, yes, an amnesty
program for more than 12 million illegal immigrants. Now,
McCain can be seen in overly-dramatic and poorly-produced
campaign ads promising to build a "danged fence".
Furthermore, his support of the draconian SB 1070 has
thrown many for a loop. How can a man who was at one point
a proponent of amnesty come out in support of an immigra-
tion law that turns Arizona's police force into the Gestapo?
We all remember the 2008 presidential election when John
McCain and the "Disasta from Alaska" drove onto the political
stage in their "Straight Talk Express" being all "mavericky" A
maverick is defined as "someone who exhibits great indepen-
dence in thought and action."
A maverick does not pander to his base, nor does he seek
to appease an unorganized political movement destined to be
tossed into the trash heap of history.
John McCain is not a maverick. He is a sell-out, willing to
sacrifice his principles in order to fulfill his political ambitions.

if they travel to Iran.
However, this is not true. First,
while it is true ran does not offer a
multiple-entry visa to U.S. citizens,
it does however, allow them to leave
and return to the country for a period
of three months without obtaining a
new visa. Also, all foreign nationals,
including Americans, can renew their
expired visas inside Iran, a privilege
that Iranian students don't have in the
U.S.
The single-entry visa policy for Ira-
nian students contradicts even what
President Obama pledged in his mes-
sage to Iranians on March 20, saying
"...even as we continue to have differ-
ences with the Iranian government, we
will sustain our commitment to a more
hopeful future for the Iranian people.
For instance, by increasing opportuni-
ties for educational exchanges so that
Iranian students can come to our col-
leges and universities."
To sum up, Iranians are very family
and community-oriented people, and
this harsh policy subjects Iranian stu-
dents at UF and all other universities
in the U.S. to unnecessary stress and
frustration.
Imagine not being able to visit your
family for four years. Is that really
fair? Only hope keeps inspiring Irani-
an students to stay rather than return
home. Hope for obtaining competence
by studying at high-standard Ameri-
can universities, and hope for the day
when tensions between the two gov-
ernments ease and mutual interests of
their citizens are valued.

10 movies to blow 10 bucks on


Sayonara, summer! Fall movie season is upon us, which means Hollywood is cranking out movies that aren't just
flimsy comedies. However, there are too many choices, and you don't have enough money to see them all. Here
are our top picks for the fall movie season. Check out our full movie guide at www.alligator.org/the_avenue.


Each Thursday, the Avenue is serving up the best in entertainment, pop culture and ev-
erything in between. From the big screen to the radio waves, check out this week's picks.


Mine


Going the
Distance
For anyone trying to keep the
love alive with a special some-
one living a thousand miles
away, Hollywood feels your
pain. "Going the Distance" hits
theaters Friday. See this rom-
com for the all-star cast, which
includes former flames Drew
Barrymore and Justin Long.


Swift's back at
her teenage crooning, laying on
the fairytalse thick with
"Mine," the first single off her
new album "Speak Now," which
is set to be released Oct. 25. The
music video debuted Friday, and
it's a crowd-pleaser for anyone
who's been swooned by Swift.
The tune is totally Taylor: In the
song, she's hesitant to fall in love
- that is, until Prince Charming
swoops in and rescues her.


Opera 0
Kid


Weeks after 10-year-old Jackie
Evancho dazzled millions with
her not-so-10-year-old perfor-
mance of opera song "0 Mio
Babbino Caro" by Giacomo
Puccini on "America's Got
Talent," the clip is still one of
YouTube's most-watched videos
- 4.7 million views and count-
ing. Watch as the youngster
proves that genuine talent alone
can woo an audience.


Futurama


From the
mind of the man (Matt
Groening) who made "The
Simpsons" a household name,
"Futurama" is just like Austin
Powers and Dr. Evil in "Austin
Powers: International Man of
Mystery," except with aliens,
robots and humans. The cartoon
comedy is ending its sixth season
tonight at 10 p.m. The show fol-
lows Philip J. Fry, who, just like
Austin and the good doctor, was
cryogenically preserved.

Mafia 2 incit
by JON SILMAN
avenue staff writer

Not being able to punch women makes me
wantto punch a woman.
Before you call the cops on me, let me explain.
"Mafia 2" was one of the most highly anticipated
video games of the lastfiscal quarter. It had all the
makings of an epic mobster melodrama some-
where between "Scarface" and "The Godfather."
(And it was playable, too! Sweet Jesus.)
All 2K Games had to do was improve on the
first one a bit, and they'd have a winner.
What they did, however, was not that.
Why does this game suck so much? All I know
is I tried to play this travesty of a game and by the
end of the first hour, I was contemplating suicide.

:es violence and infuriates


"Mafia 2" is an open sandbox game like
"Grand Theft Auto." This is supposed to supply
the player with a sense of freedom - a way to con-
trol your own destiny without being put on a re-
peat violence/sex offender list.
But there are no side missions.
In "Mafia 2," you can buy
clothes. And all the real mis-
sions are "drive to this ware-
house and then drive back."
If I wanted to drive all day, I'd
deliver pizzas.
Also in this bomb, losingthe cops is impossible.
If you shoot someone, somehow those 1940s po-
licemen have GPS tracking devices and transpor-
tation machines. So the game tells you to change
clothes to lose your wanted level but you can't go


into the clothes store with one. And you can't buy
new clothes 'cause you're wanted, so you have
to steal them and (naturally) shoot the cashier,
which gives you a different kind of wanted level.
Then you steal a car and get a third type of wanted
level. Then you die, and when you restart you're
still wanted by the cops. Then your girlfriend gets
mad at you 'cause you kicked the dog My final
gripe: you can't punch women. I'm not a propo-
nent of this in real life, but it's a video game.
Part of the fun of "Grand Theft Auto" was get-
ting prostitutes and then (naturally) beatingthem.
I mean, our guy is a mobster. Since when are they
shining beacons of chivalry?
In conclusion, this game blows harder than
Katrina did. I suggest you poop in a box and send
2K Games a stinker of your own.


With Morningbell, talent runs in the family


Lowe


portrait


debuts
by KAT BEIN
avenue staff writer

Last Friday, Mayor Craig Lowe
came out, again, and in brilliant
colors.
Gainesville's first openly gay
mayor has been immortalized by
one of the city's most enigmatic
artists, Tom Miller, and the portrait
was unveiled at local gay mecca
University Club.
Miller, a 44-year-old jack-of-all-
trades who calls himself a shittyy
artist," has painted prominent
Gainesville figures before, including
former Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
and former Police Chief Wayland
Clifton.
But for Miller, this portrait hits
deeper and is more personal, an
homage to someone he sees as a
local hero.
"He is somebody who will listen
to anybody in this town no matter
who you are or where you came
from," he said. The portrait is a
mixed-media piece that depicts the
mayor as a strong, proud figure,
standing with his arms crossed and
his head lookingforward and up, as
if to the future.
His body is a black and white
picture pasted over large, horizon-
tal stripes of the gay flag colors. His
tie has been cut out so that the un-
derlying colors shine through.
"This is my way of honoring him
and letting him know that the art-
ists in town like him, or at least I
do," Miller said.

songwriter for the band, the younger
Atria says his music has become
more accessible, with lyrics that are
less about outer space and more
about life, love and sex.
"There's more body. There's
more of a physicality to the music,"
he said. "I wanted to make some-


thingthat was undeniable."
They agree their brotherly bond
over music has only made chasing
their artistic dreams easier.
"For us, it's like the thing that
keeps us going," Eric said. "When
we go on tour, we know how to live
with each other."


Joey Flechas / Alligator staff
Brothers Eric and Travis Atria share a kindred moment. Their band,
Morningbell, has a show Friday at Common Grounds.


It could be surviving an on-stage
hiccup or guiding a two-car caravan
through New York City traffic. Either
way, the Atria brothers take advan-
tage of their family ties.
"We have a language between
us," Travis said.
The chemistry of the band as a
whole is tangible on stage. Eric re-
counted a time when drummer Hill-
man missed a beat during a show.
The band was able to adjust, in lock-
step, to the rhythm with just a split-
second glance at one another.
And it's this chemistry that has
guided the band through what Tra-
vis amusingly calls an "adolescent
fantasy." The band saw "Sincerely,
Severely" attract national attention
and bigger gigs. Since its release in
December, Morningbell has played
large-scale musicfestivals like South
by Southwest and Bonnaroo, and
they've had more critical acclaim
than ever before.
"It feels like we're just starting, in
a way," Travis said.
After nearly 10 years of paying
dues, they found that their enthusi-
asm has crowds erupting at festivals
just as they do in small clubs.

enue for the rest of this story.

avenue writer

It all started on Christmas in
1994 with a pair of guitars, an Aero-
smith record and a Tom Petty and
the Heartbreakers tablature book.
Throw in years of absorbing The
Beatles, The Flaming Lips and soul
greats like Otis Redding and Curtis
Mayfield, and the education of Morn-
ingbell's brother duo Travis and Eric
Atria was complete.
The Gainesville-based group,
known for its psychedelic power-pop
anthems and charm, is a family af-
fair for the Atria brothers. With Travis
covering vocals and guitar and Eric
on bass, they share the stage with
drummer Chris Hillman and key-
boardist Stacie Atria (Eric's wife).
The band is playing Common
Grounds Friday to mark the digital
release of "Sun Come Out," a new
EP featuring songs from the ses-
sions from its 2009 outing, "Sin-
cerely, Severely," and for anyone
who's ever been a face in the crowd
at a Morningbell show, it's in the air:
brotherly love.
And it's taken time for the broth-
ers to refine their roles in the band.
Travis is the artistic force. As the

Defensive line given more


freedom with Austin


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@allgator org

Jaye Howard expects to get his hands on
ball carriers more often this season, thanks
to the leadership of first-year defensive co-
ordinator Teryl Austin,.
Howard said his role in the past, along
with that of the rest of the defensive line-
men, has been to merely occupy blockers
so the Gators' linebackers could roam un-
touched.
"We had a freak back there in Brandon
Spikes and we were just holding [offensive
lineman] up for him, letting him do his
thing," said Howard, who has recorded 37
tackles in two seasons.
But this year Austin wants his lineman
to shed more blocks and get their own tack-
les.
"Anybody that's on the field for us, they
have to be able to make plays," he said.
"You have to do your job, and sometimes
that requires holding the gap and then get-
ting off to make a play."
Howard will have an even greater
chance to get his name on stat sheets when
he moves to defensive end, a spot he said
he will occupy in some of Florida's pack-
ages this season. He expects the team to run
multiple formations when Florida plays
Alabama Oct. 2.
Although he said he likes the chance
to mix his assignments, Howard would
have been more excited about the move
as a freshman. Entering school weighing
just 230 pounds, Howard said he used to
hang around the salad bar to keep weight
off, hoping to avoid becoming an interior


lineman.
But, three years and about 80 pounds
later, he now prefers playing inside and
the contact that goes along with the posi-
tion. He credits his weight gain to workouts
with strength coach Mickey Marotti and
"pancake diets" at the dining hall.
"You eat like a pig out there," Howard
said. "I'm not used to eating that much."
Austin on recruiting: Austin has not
coached .:.ll.- . ...rl:; IIl since leaving Mich-
igan for the NFL in 2002. He said staying on
the phones and in the living rooms of high
school prospects has been the most notable
adjustment he's had to make.
He's noticed an increased amount of at-
tention to recruiting websites
and televised all-star games
since joining the professional
ranks.
Football "You never had to deal
with that before," he said.
"You had guys, usually, com-
ing in just trying to earn their way. With all
the media stuff, sometimes they get like,
'Hey, you're ready to go.' But they really
don't quite understand what it takes to be a
college football player."
Jones moving around: The Gators have
used all their linebackers at the strongside,
weakside and middle positions through-
out the preseason in an effort to make each
player more versatile.
But A.J. Jones is the only member of the
unit the coaches feel comfortable enough to
play at all three positions in games this sea-
son, coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday.
Last year, Ryan Stamper played a similar
role.
"A.J. Jones is basically our Stamper,"


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Start
Defensive tackle Jaye Howard expects to move over to end in some of Florida's defen-
sive packages.
Meyer said. opposite Janons Jenkins, and Austin said
Still no second corner: Jeremy Brown the decision will not be made until shortly
and Moses Jenkins have been neck-and- before Florida's season opener noon Satur-
neck for the starting cornerback position day against Miami (Ohio).


UF VOLLEYBALL

New defensive scheme leads to more Gators blocks


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
gluca@alligator org

It was the best birthday present
assistant coach Dave Boos could
ever ask for.
With his team leading 14-12 in
a decisive fifth set, juniors Kelly
Murphy and Cassandra Anderson
leaped in the air and sent the attack
of Nebraska outside hitter Han-
nah Werth plummeting back to the
floor, lifting the No. 6 Gators to a
victory over the then-No. 2 Huskers
and their first win against a top-two
team since 2003.


"We joked beforehand that the
team was going to win the match for
my birthday," Boos said. "It was re-
ally nice to be able to have the team
play so well that day."
Sunday's victory was significant
for Boos due to more than just tim-
ing. His newly installed defense led
to not just the win over Nebraska
but also Saturday's victory against
Iowa State.
Despite not boasting a player
taller than 6-foot-2, the Gators out
blocked a Nebraska team featuring
6-foot-5 Morgan Broekhuis, 6-foot-5
Lindsey Licht, 6-foot-4 Brooke Dela-
no and 6-foot-3 Allison McNeal by a


count of 14 to 9.
In its three most recent matches
against Nebraska, UF had never
come within seven blocks of the
Huskers.
"That was one of the key statis-
tics and we've
seen it year in
and year out in
volleyball," UF
coach Mary Wise
said. "Blocking is
one of the really
Wise key skills needed
to play at an elite
level."
Boos joined the program in the


offseason to try to help the Gators
excel in this crucial area, and the
switch to his system appears to be
paying immediate dividends.
Although a number of schools
run a variation of the scheme Boos
employs, very few, if any, do it ex-
actly like he does.
"It's basically a way to have the
front court and back court be very
coordinated together as a defense,"
Boos said. "It allows us to take calcu-
lated blocking risks during a match,
and this weekend I thought that the
players did a fantastic job of execut-
ing what the gameplan was."
Although the players and coach-


es agree there is still plenty of room
for improvement as the season pro-
gresses, Florida's 2-0 showing at the
Runza/American - .._ II. :II Coach-
es Association Showcase proves the
system has the potential to be every-
thing the team hoped it would.
"When the whole thing starts
clicking together we should have
six people responding as a unit, and
that's the ultimate goal by the end of
the season," Boos said.
Returning middle blockers Lau-
ren Bledsoe and Anderson may
have the most difficult time mak-
ing the transition, as the pair is now

NCAA FOOTBALL

Redhawks to play Gators fresh off one-win season


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligator org


Mike Haywood knows how difficult it
is to play in Ben Hill Grifhn Stadium.
Before he became the coach at Miami
(Ohio), Haywood spent eight seasons as
an assistant coach at Florida's conference
rival LSU.
After visiting Gainesville four times
as a coach, Haywood is well aware of the
difficulties his team will face when it goes
up against No. 4 Florida on Saturday at
noon.
"We talked to our guys about going in
and embracing the atmosphere," he said.
"We are doing things in practice to give us


an advantage, like silent cadence and dif-
ferent things so we really don't need ca-
dences on offense so we can get the ball
snapped appropriately."
The Redhawks are coming off
of a one-win season, but quarter-
back Zac Dysert has instilled hope.
The sophomore signal-caller threw for
2,611 yards last year in 11 games, while
also racking up a career-best 426 passing
yards against Temple last season. His play
has led others to compare Dysert to Miami
(Ohio) great Ben Roethlisberger, but his
coach isn't going that far.
"Due to his knowledge of the offense,
[Zac] has become a leader on the held and
off the held," Haywood said.
"He has the potential and as long as he


stays on track - I wouldn't compare him to
[Roethlisberger] because he has a couple
of Super Bowls - but he is progressing on
that line where he can be a quality NFL
.: . - *l:, II player."
However, Haywood
wants to take pressure off
Dysert by developing a
rushing attack early in the
season. The good news is
the team's leading rusher,
Thomas Merriweather,
returns this year. The bad
Haywood news is he only accumu-
lated 291 yards in 2009.
"Offensively, we are coming together
a lot better," Haywood said. "Dysert is
leading us at quarterback, Merriweather


at running back and we are still trying to
solidify our offensive line at this point."
On the defensive side of the ball, the
Redhawks will try to improve after allow-
ing 34.2 points per game last season.
They return middle linebacker Jerrell
Wedge, who led the Mid-American Con-
ference with 18.5 tackles for a loss last
year.
Still, Florida running back Jeff Demps
could be in line for a big day Saturday as
Miami (Ohio) struggled to stop the run
in 2009, allowing 186.9 rushing yards per
game.
"Florida is a team with tremendous
speed and we have to make sure we find a
way to slow this -....:: :II game down and
limit their possessions," Haywood said.


Bledsoe getting used to middle blocker spot


Big East boasts


expanded venues

* CONFERENCE TEAMS AVERAGED 44,804 FANS
PER GAME IN 2009.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Louisville athletic director Tom Ju-
rich heard the rumblings four years ago when he led the push
to expand Cardinal Stadium.
Even though the program was in the midst of a record-
breaking season in which it eventually won the Big East title
and the Orange Bowl, Jurich knew some wondered if there
really was a need to spend millions upgrading a stadium that
was less than a decade old at the time.
"I took a lot of criticism, like 'what's this idiot doing?'" Ju-
rich said.
Construction continued even as the program and the econ-
omy faltered. When Louisville and new coach Charlie Strong
take the field against Kentucky on Saturday in the Governor's
Cup, the Cardinals will do it in front of a sellout crowd of over
56,000.
The facelift includes 33 new luxury suites, over 1,700 club
seats, an upper deck with 13,000 chairback seats and a south
terrace that provides a view of the twin spires at nearby
Churchill Downs.
"It's a big-time looking stadium right now," Jurich said.
"This puts us in an elite group."
To keep up in the Big East these days, it's part of the game.
Five years after the conference was left on life support after
Virginia Tech, Miami and Boston College bolted for the Atlan-
tic Coast Conference, the Big East is thriving both on the field
and at the gate.
Rutgers finished a $100 million renovation of its football
complex last year.
"Since the reorganization, I think every school without ex-
ception has made a commitment to improving all facilities,"
said Rutgers coach Greg Schiano. "It's paramount for the con-
tinued growth of our league."
And interest is growing.
Average attendance in the Big East last year was higher
than it was before Boston College split following the 2004 sea-
son. The current lineup averaged 44,804 fans a game in 2009,
compared to 37,805 in 2004. Those numbers are skewed a bit
by Temple, which averaged just over 16,000 fans during it's
final year in the conference.
Why the uptick in a conference prematurely pronounced
dead a few times? Winning helps.
Schiano has revitalized Rutgers. West Virginia has won a
pair of BCS bowls. South Florida has beaten the likes of Florida
State to carve out a niche in the football-heavy Sunshine State.
Though Big East teams don't play in the sprawling palaces
that can be found in places like the Southeastern Conference,
that's not necessarily a bad thing.


VOLLEY, from page 18


expected to read the other team's attack and coordinate
UF's response, both of which are responsibilities they
didn't have to worry about last season.
But Florida's two starters have taken the new chal-
lenges in stride. And after such a successful opening
tournament, they have no doubts that the move was a
smart one.
"I think everyone is responding to it really well, and
after seeing it this weekend it completely makes sense,"
Bledsoe said. I 1. 1;. ..1. has any problems - .II.. '"'1
along and jumping on board with it."
Anderson has been a consistent force at middle
blocker over her first two years, leading the team in
blocks both seasons.
Bledsoe, on the other hand, is relatively new to the
middle blocker position after spending the majority of
her time at outside hitter last season.
Her first match on the interior came on Nov. 20
against Tennessee, when Florida had just four matches


"It definitely helps to have one position
and to have something to really focus on.
To be able to work on just one thing ver-

UF middle blocker

left in its regular season.
Bledsoe seized the opportunity, recording 45 kills,
four solo blocks and 18 block assists in her final seven
contests while earning a full-time spot at middle blocker
in 2010.
After a full offseason of work at the position, Bled-
soe expects her play to be even stronger than it was last
year.
"It definitely helps to have one position and to have
something to really focus on," she said. "To be able to
work on just one thing versus everything will always
help."

UF middle blocker Cassandra Anderson has led the team in blocks in each of the last two seasons. She
is accountable for eight of the team's 25 blocks through two matches this year.

Hurricanes in talks about


playing in Yankee Stadium


Al Photo
Coach Randy Shannon and the Hurricanes could play a game in Yankee Stadium
during the 2013 season. Miami is looking for an opponent.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CORAL GABLES - Miami is looking to
play at Yankee Stadium.
Hurricanes athletic director Kirby Hocutt
engaged in talks with New York Yankees of-
ficials Tuesday and Wednesday about the
possibility of Miami playing in the team's
new ballpark during the 2013 season, and
emerged believing an agreement could be
struck.
"I feel confident to say the Miami Hurri-
canes are going to have a presence in New
York City," Hocutt told The Associated
Press.
No potential date, or opponent, has been
revealed, although it's likely any game
would take place in November because of
the ::. .._:: II playoff schedule. Hocutt said
there are "a couple options" on the table, but
stressed he wants to make sure any deal is
the right fit.
"There's obviously a desire on our part to
get up into this market," Hocutt said. "The
Yankee organization, they've expressed
their interest and desire to have the game in
the stadium. So I'm confident that there's in-
terest on both sides."
Miami already has 10 games - five home,
five away - scheduled for 2013, eight of them
being Atlantic Coast Conference matchups.
The Hurricanes plan to host Florida on Sept.
7, 2013. Miami is scheduled to visit South
Florida on Nov. 30 of that year in Tampa, the


Yankees' spring training home.
That leaves two non-conference dates for
the Hurricanes still to fill, and if the Yankee
Stadium plan comes together, their likely
preference would be to make the sixth road
game of the year a neutral-site contest in
New York.
"I think it's great for college -..rl::,IIl
and the University of Miami," coach Randy
Shannon said. "You play teams outside of
the conference a lot ... and it's an opportu-
nity for us to be in the Northeast, which is a
big University of Miami alumni base area."
Miami has already added one marquee
non-conference, neutral-site game to its
upcoming schedule. The
SHurricanes will play Notre
a Dame at Chicago's Soldier
Field in 2012.
There's a number of ties between the Hur-
ricanes and Yankees - including Alex Ro-
driguez.
The Yankees' third baseman nearly en-
rolled at Miami before signing his first pro
deal, has donated millions to his adopted
university and is a member of the school's
board of trustees. Rodriguez regularly
works out at Miami during the offseason as
well, but has not been part of these talks be-
tween the Hurricanes and the Yankees, Ho-
cutt said.
Miami played in the old Yankee Stadium
in 1962, losing to Nebraska in what was the
final edition of the Gotham Bowl.

The Onondaga County Sheriff said Stanley Lostumbo jumped into a dump truck Tuesday night after being accused of stealing from vending machines at a mall. Police pursued the truck on a highway, through backyards and school grounds and down railroad tracks at speeds up to 65 mph before stopping it at a barricade in East Syracuse. Police said Lostumbo reversed the truck apparently striking Lostumbo in the shoulinjuries. Deputies were questioning Lostumbo.

ANTI-VIOLENCE GROUPS ARE COMING TOGETHER TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT THREATS AGAINST THE CHURCH DO NOT REPRESENT ALL MUSLIMS.By JOEY FLECHASAlligator Staff Writer Amid the controversy surrounding the Dove World Outreach Center’s plan to burn the Quran on Sept. 11, Islamic groups have been advising Muslims to not let their frustration turn into violence. Ziad Ghanimi, spokesman for the Gainesville Muslim Initiative, said the local Muslim community condemns any form of violence against the church’s pastor, Terry Jones, or its members. “It’s counterproductive to be violent,” he said. “We should try to engage in a discussion.” Ghanimi said an attack on the church would only bolster Jones’ stance. “Violence will not make him change his mind,” he said. “It those that are violent are Muslims.” The condemnation comes after The Gainesville Sun reported receiving a death threat directed toward Jones Tuesday evening. According to the article, the Sun gave the letter to the Gainesville Police Department, who is investigating the matter. In a statement released by The American Muslim Association of North America on Wednesday, the group condemns the Quran burning but denounces violent reaction to the event. “We would like to remind that Islam calls for vigorous condemnation of such hateful acts, but always within the margins of law and order,” the statement said. The statement was signed by 15 imams — Islamic leaders — and Ahmed Al Mehdawi, president of the Islamic Center of Gainesville. tion of North America, said Muslims should exhibit tolerance and control because violence only weakens America’s sense of unity. “Our enemies would be looking at us and laughing at us,” he said. “We would be doing their job for them.”Local Muslims say violence won’t solve Dove problemJones By ALEXANDER KLAUSNERAlligator Staff Writer Students may have something to be itchy about. Bed bug infestations are becoming more and more common on college campuses, crawling between the sheets with students and biting them while they sleep. Their numbers have exploded Walker, senior pest control technician for UF’s Department of Housing and Residence Education. “Most of us in the industry believe it’s because of increased international travel and truly a lack of awareness by most people that it is a problem,” Walker said. “Most of the bed bug issues are brought in by people traveling in hotels and motels and ending up back in their residence or them picking up used furniture.” A bed bug is a small, blood-sucking insect whose adult form is around a quarter-inch in length, Walker said. The bug is from the same family as stinkbugs, and if a lot of them are in one room, there is a noticeable smell. Though the bugs are not known to transmit any diseases, their bite has been known to cause an uncomfortable itch and, in some cases, an allergic reaction. Walker, as well as Roberto Pereira, another UF bed bug expert, said the problem has not affected UF’s dormitories as much as it has affected other campuses. been about four bed bug occurrences in the UF dormitories, Walker said.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 3 Luis Giraldo / AlligatorSanta Fe College president Jackson Sasser speaks at the grand opening of the UF @ Santa Fe Gator Den center on the Santa Fe College campus Wednesday morning. ACADEMICBy DEZMA GAINERAlligator Contributing Writer UF and Santa Fe College students seeking an online degree have a new UF resource available to them. The grand opening of the UF @ Santa Fe Center, also known as the Gator Den, took place Wednesday morning. Located in Building H of Santa Fe’s Northwest campus at 3000 NW 83rd Street, the Gator Den is a partnership between UF and Santa Fe. The goal of the facility is to provide easier access to online degree programs and help prepare transfer students for entrance into UF. UF is currently offering online degree programs in business administration and sports management through Santa Fe, but more will be added as the new program expands. Steve Dorman, dean of the UF College of Health and Human Per formance, said only a small per centage of adults in Florida have a bachelor’s degree. Because of these statistics, Dor man said, it is important to make education more available to residents across the state of Florida. “This is two government agencies getting it right for the better ment of Floridians,” Dorman said. UF paid for the building’s renovation, which cost about $200,000, according to Santa Fe’s website, sfcollege.edu. UF and Santa Fe will split the cost of a full-time adviser/ recruiter, who will give information about UF’s distance-learning programs and transferring to UF.UF info center opens at Santa Fe CollegeUF professors developed a beg-bug 'cooker' to combat infestationsfestations are reported per year in graduate housing, Walker said. Off campus, the number of cases per year is even greater, though the bed bug problem is not as bad in Florida as it is in other states, Pereira said. Students should immediately notify oncampus pest control if they discover bed bugs in dormitories or graduate housing. Bed bugs, particularly young ones, are bugs are clear and about the size of a period on a printed paper, Pereira said. When bed bugs feed, they defecate, he said. So, the best way to look for bed bugs is to look for black spots on linens. Pereira, along with Walker and another professor, Phillip Koehler, came up with a simple solution to the bed-bug problem — cook them. They put up walls around infested items, such as blankets, with Styrofoam panels, and then place a heater or fan inside to create, in effect, an oven. They then monitor the temperature inside the “oven” until all the bed bugs are dead. Though the design is simple and could be built at home, Pereira advised potential home bed bug warriors to leave it to the experts. Bed bugs are typically harmless aside from causing an uncomfortable itching sensation, although Walker said bed bugs could be harmful in other ways. “When you share your bed with a bed bug, it’s a traumatic experience of sharing your bed with something that feeds on you,” he said. “So the trauma of it all and the mental anguish is an issue.” BUGS, from page 1 On Campu s

By JESSICA KAUFMANAlligator Contributing Writer Melissa Pender can be described as a gym regular. Five days a week, she, like many other UF students, travels to Southwest Recreation Center to take advantage of all the state-of-the-art equipment. However, Pender has been plagued with a recurring problem that has hindered her workout plans—a lack of ID. Without her Gator 1 Card, Pender can’t enter the gym. “I must have lost mine at least three times since freshman year,” said Pender, a journalism junior. Now, as part of Southwest Rec’s recent multi-million dollar renovation, students such as Pender won’t need to worry about missing a workout due to a lost student ID. Instead of waiting in line to get their Gator 1 Cards swiped, students can enter Southwest Rec by punching in their UF ID numbers and placing their hand on the gym’s newly installed HandKeys. David Bowles, the director of the Department of Recreational Sports at UF, said the staff had to undergo training to learn the HandKey software. In less than two weeks, more than 10,000 students have enrolled in the system to use the HandKeys, said Pamela Hightower, coordinator of operations for UF’s Department of Recreational Sports. Hightower said about 400 new students enroll a day. With thousands of hands touching each machine a day some students have expressed concerns about the sanitation of the HandKeys. “I never really thought about the cleanliness until I saw a really sweaty guy use the HandKey right before me,” said Matt Heller, a freshman at UF. Hightower said these students do not have to worry. The surfaces of the HandKeys are built with BioCote, an anti-microbial surface. The HandKeys also undergo specialized weekly cleaning. Although the technology is relatively optimistic the new feature will catch on. “These HandKeys have the potential to be very useful in a lot of applications around campus,” Bowles said.THE ASSOCIATED PRESSA man who railed against the Discovery Channel's environmental programming for years burst into the company's headquarters with at least one explosive device strapped to his body Wednesday and took three people hostage at gunpoint before police shot him to death, ofThe hostages — two Discovery Communications employees and a security guard — were unhurt after the four-hour standoff.

THE MOSQUE PLANNED NEAR GROUND ZERO.By HANNAH LEACHAlligator Contributing Writer Although hundreds of miles separate Gainesville from the site of the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, the issue resonates deeply for many Gainesville residents. mosque, which has sparked much debate nationally as to whether an Islamic place of worship should be built near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks. Ismail ibn Ali, the president of Islam on Campus, believes that having a mosque near Ground Zero is a good idea. After hearing about the proposed mosque, Ali said that he never thought the location would cause such a controversy. “I see it as another building close by,” he said. Members of other religious faiths, such as Kristi Colson, the president of the Christian Student Association, believes Americans, no matter what their religious prefer ences, should be able to practice freely. the Muslim faith as a whole. “The Sept. 11 acts were done out of religious zeal, but I trust that not all of them are like this,” Colson said. Others, such as Keith Dvorchik, the executive director of Hillel, had a hard time forming an opinion regarding the issue. ing about the anticipated mosque and Islamic center. He said the terrorist attacks still strike powerful emotions with the public and placing a mosque near this site is very controversial. the prospect of having a mosque so close to Ground Zero given the political implications. However, after doing some personal research, he said the public needs to remember that not all Muslims are ter rorists. “They have every right to [build] it there,” he said. One of the things that made him come around was that he believed the mosque would focus more on the community aspect and would have a positive impact. Dvorchik believes that the ability to practice one’s religion without fear of repercussion is something that, no matter what one's faith, should be respected. “The beauty of America is that they have the right to do it there,” Dvorchik said.Campus, local groups weigh in on NYC mosque Ne ws Local ON CAMPUSSouthwest Rec debuts state-of-the-art hand scanners “These Hand Keys have the po tential to be very useful in a lot of applications around campus."David Bowles Director, Department of Recreational SportsPolice kill hostage-taker at Discover Channel headquarters Ne ws National

And sometimes it’s even funnier to read why they’re in the news. This week, a high school near Sioux Falls, S.D., banned a bracelet aiming to promote cancer awareness — a bracelet that does so with the slogan “I love boobies.” The brazen bracelets have caused controversy in other states across the country, including our very own Sunshine State. The South Dakota girl accused of a major dress-code violation worse than those “Female Body Inspector” Tshirts has a history of breast cancer in her family, and she says she was simply trying to bring attention to the issue afThe issue at hand is not whether people love boobies — clearly a vast majority do — but whether school-aged children maintain their right to free speech within a public school setting. Clearly, they don’t. This very same issue became national news when Gainesville children came to school with T-shirts that said “Islam is of the Devil.” And although the issues of boobies and supposed Satanic Muslims are a little bit differ ent, the concept is the same. We doubt a little bosom-loving bracelet action distracted students, and we support the cause behind the bracelets as well as a student’s right to express their beliefs as they so choose. All in all, we want to save the Ta Tas as much as anyone else. And, really, there’s not much more to write about South Dakota if we’re not talking about Mount Rushmore. Barack the boatObama undertakes Mid-East peace talksYou can’t say the man doesn’t have goals. As President Obama announced the end of the Amer ican combat mission in Iraq from the fancy-schmancy, day evening, an onslaught of new issues came forward. Topping that list were revamping the economy because apnancial bailouts were not enough to get us to buy stuff; successfully ending America’s mission in Afghanistan; and ending the Obama wants to, for real this time, bring peace to the Middle East. Is it us or are these peace pow-wows becoming more and more like trying to sit through “The Neverending Story” every year? We’re with you, Mr. President. We love peace more than $5 footlongs (how’s that for a stimulus plan?). In fact, we feel the world could use maybe even a little bit more of that whole peace thing. But how realistic are these talks? It doesn’t typically spell out a clean agreement when both warring parties are largely opposed to substantial compromise. Since the beginning of time, well, no, more like since the U.N. bullied its way through the Middle East and gave Israel its own state, our newspapers, radios and TVs have been plagued with reports of war in the Middle East. We can only hope President Obama has a few tricks up his sleeve because that’s exactly what the world needs right now – a little magic. Allow me to begin by lobbing a grenade into the mine I believe our country’s founding is inseparable from Judeo-Christian philosophies. However, it is also an American’s right to hold himself to the tenets, philosophies and practices of any religion, spirituality or non-religion he deems appropriate. Recently, the “Restoring Honor” rally was hosted in Washington, D.C., with reports of more than 100,000 people from all demographics and backgrounds attending. The speakers reminded those listening to rely on God for relief from the burdens of life and associated hardships. seek to eradicate all traces of Judeo-Christian philosophy from our government and those who seek to preserve those principles. To separate the idea of civil rights from the Judeo-Christian principle of moral obligation and the idea of a higher power is to devalue our liberty as Americans. As Alexander Hamilton argued, to separate the two concepts is “the most manifest violation of justice.” Espoused by Enlightenment philosophers such as John Locke and as stated in the Declaration of Independence, the rights to life and liberty are or dained from no less a power than God. A 2007 Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life study found that about 75 percent of Americans are either religious or take no offense to public mentions of God on currency, entangled in cases to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance and to ban Bible study clubs from public high schools. Yes, the classic separation-of-church-and-state argument has to come into play somewhere. Let’s deconstruct this ar gument. The exact term “separation of church and state” is found nowhere within America’s founding documents. Instead, Thomas Jefferson used the phrase to alleviate the concerns of a Baptist ministry that America would be prone to tion. Jefferson makes the same point I would advocate by using that phrase. Essentially, he points out there is to be ligion by the government. This does not mean, however, our government cannot adhere to the Judeo-Christian philosophy in its operation. The wording of the First Amendment supports such an idea, as well. The establishon the part of the government. At this point, I must caution us to the danger of separating God from government. If the secularist movement prevails and the idea of “inalienable natural rights as granted by God” is defeated, then what is to prevent the reinstitution of slavery or discrimination at the behest of a majority? When men are left to determine the rights of one another, those rights are in serious jeopardy. In summation, this issue is of paramount importance to each of us, and at such a tumultuous point in American history we should all be standing up for the continued recognition of our inalienable natural rights, as endowed by God. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in his famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” referred to “our constitutional and God-given rights.” In that same letter, he also said those engaged in the civil rights movement were “standing up for what is best in the American dream and for the most sacred values in our Judeo-Christian heritage.” If we continue to diminish the role of religion in our political dialogue and exclude its manifestations from our public affairs, we will lose the essential foundation of our American rights and freedoms. Our natural rights are our foundation, our backbone, our promise and our future. Christian philosophies shaped America letters@alligator.org

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7 As a UF student, you might take it for granted that you can visit your loved ones whenever you like. It takes but a single call to arrange a visit, a simple drive or, at most, a national student, you can plan in advance to visit your family back home during summer or semester breaks. But this is not true for all UF students. Being able to visit their families back home is far out of the imagination and reach for some international their U.S. visa type. Iranian students are subject to single-entry U.S. visas only. This means they are only allowed to enter the United States once. If they decide to leave, for any reason, they must re-apply for a U.S. visa, which means going through a long and cumbersome administrative process again that might take anywhere from a few weeks to a year. Iranian students who dared to travel outside the U.S. during their studies here, have, many times, ended up losing a semester or two, or even their assistantship positions simply because of this unfair policy. Some even end studies in the U.S. What makes the problem even worse is the U.S. has no embassy in Iran, an issue that forces students to travel to a third country in order to renew their visas. This policy is a result of the bitter relationship between the U.S. and Iranian governments, which has roots in historical events, including the CIAbacked coup in 1953 that overthrew the democratically elected prime minister of Iran and the hostage-taking crisis at the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 following the Islamic revolution in Iran. Some American politicians say this is a reciprocal policy in response to the same situation Americans face if they travel to Iran. However, this is not true. First, while it is true ran does not offer a multiple-entry visa to U.S. citizens, it does however, allow them to leave and return to the country for a period of three months without obtaining a new visa. Also, all foreign nationals, including Americans, can renew their expired visas inside Iran, a privilege that Iranian students don’t have in the U.S. The single-entry visa policy for Iranian students contradicts even what President Obama pledged in his message to Iranians on March 20, saying “even as we continue to have differ ences with the Iranian government, we will sustain our commitment to a more hopeful future for the Iranian people. For instance, by increasing opportunities for educational exchanges so that Iranian students can come to our colleges and universities.” To sum up, Iranians are very family and community-oriented people, and this harsh policy subjects Iranian students at UF and all other universities in the U.S. to unnecessary stress and frustration. Imagine not being able to visit your family for four years. Is that really fair? Only hope keeps inspiring Iranian students to stay rather than return home. Hope for obtaining competence by studying at high-standard American universities, and hope for the day when tensions between the two governments ease and mutual interests of their citizens are valued.

Apparently he wants his constituents to forget that he cosponsored a comprehensive immigration reform bill with program for more than 12 million illegal immigrants. Now, McCain can be seen in overly-dramatic and poorly-produced campaign ads promising to build a “danged fence”. Furthermore, his support of the draconian SB 1070 has thrown many for a loop. How can a man who was at one point a proponent of amnesty come out in support of an immigration law that turns Arizona’s police force into the Gestapo? We all remember the 2008 presidential election when John McCain and the “Disasta from Alaska” drove onto the political stage in their “Straight Talk Express” being all “mavericky.” A dence in thought and action.” A maverick does not pander to his base, nor does he seek to appease an unorganized political movement destined to be tossed into the trash heap of history.

The music video debuted Friday, and it’s a crowd-pleaser for anyone who’s been swooned by Swift. The tune is totally Taylor: In the song, she’s hesitant to fall in love — that is, until Prince Charming swoops in and rescues her.

Opera Kid Weeks after 10-year-old Jackie Evancho dazzled millions with her not-so-10-year-old performance of opera song “O Mio Babbino Caro” by Giacomo Puccini on “America’s Got Talent,” the clip is still one of YouTube’s most-watched videos – 4.7 million views and counting. Watch as the youngster proves that genuine talent alone can woo an audience.Futurama From the mind of the man (Matt Groening) who made “The Simpsons” a household name, “Futurama” is just like Austin Powers and Dr. Evil in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery,” except with aliens, robots and humans. The cartoon comedy is ending its sixth season tonight at 10 p.m. The show follows Philip J. Fry, who, just like Austin and the good doctor, was cryogenically preserved.

MacheteSynopsis: A Mexican migrant farm worker is framed by his employers and spends the next two hours slaughtering bad dudes and fondling boobies. Verdict: Starring anybody who has ever made you cry yourself to sleep in fear and shame, this is going to make “The Expendables” look like “Julie and Julia.” Starring: Danny Trejo, Steven Sea gal, Lindsay LohanGoing the DistanceSynopsis: A couple struggle to maintain a very long-distance relationship. Verdict: Holy crap, is that Char lie from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”? This looks like some schmaltzy romantic comedy, but holy crap! Charlie! Starring: Justin Long, Charlie Day, Drew BarrymoreThe Social NetworkSynopsis: The seedy, betrayalriddled story of the creation of social networking giant Facebook. Verdict: “Blood Diamond” made us feel bad about our jewelry, and this is going to make us feel bad about our Facebook addictions. Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Rooney MaraJackass 3-DSynopsis: Grown men hurt themselves and each other for two hours. Verdict: Because it’s been too long since we’ve seen a grown man staple his scrotum to his leg. In 3-D! Starring: Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville127 HoursSynopsis: Based on a true story, a mountain climber traps his arm under a boulder and must sever it with his own knife to get loose and survive. Verdict: The director of 7 Hours,” Danny Boyle, has been responsible for some of the most intense, gut-wrenching and heartfelt movies of all time. In the same vein as “Slumdog Millionaire” and “Trainspotting, 127 is going to be the next modern classic. Starring: James Franco, Lizzy CaplanHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1Synopsis: movie adaptation of the last Harry Potter novel. Verdict: Who cares if the last few movies kind of sucked?

by JOEY FLECHAS avenue writer It all started on Christmas in 1994 with a pair of guitars, an Aero smith record and a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tablature book. Throw in years of absorbing The Beatles, The Flaming Lips and soul greats like Otis Redding and Curtis ingbell’s brother duo Travis and Eric Atria was complete. The Gainesville-based group, known for its psychedelic power-pop anthems and charm, is a family affair for the Atria brothers. With Travis covering vocals and guitar and Eric on bass, they share the stage with drummer Chris Hillman and key boardist Stacie Atria (Eric’s wife). The band is playing Common Grounds Friday to mark the digital release of “Sun Come Out,” a new EP featuring songs from the sessions from its 2009 outing, “Sincerely, Severely,” and for anyone who’s ever been a face in the crowd at a Morningbell show, it’s in the air: brotherly love. And it’s taken time for the brothTravis is the artistic force. As the songwriter for the band, the younger Atria says his music has become more accessible, with lyrics that are less about outer space and more about life, love and sex. “There’s more body. There’s more of a physicality to the music,” he said. “I wanted to make some thing that was undeniable.” They agree their brotherly bond over music has only made chasing their artistic dreams easier. “For us, it’s like the thing that keeps us going,” Eric said. “When we go on tour, we know how to live with each other.” It could be surviving an on-stage hiccup or guiding a two-car caravan way, the Atria brothers take advantage of their family ties. “We have a language between us,” Travis said. The chemistry of the band as a whole is tangible on stage. Eric re counted a time when drummer Hillman missed a beat during a show. The band was able to adjust, in lock step, to the rhythm with just a splitsecond glance at one another. And it’s this chemistry that has guided the band through what Travis amusingly calls an “adolescent fantasy.” The band saw “Sincerely, Severely” attract national attention and bigger gigs. Since its release in December, Morningbell has played large-scale music festivals like South by Southwest and Bonnaroo, and they’ve had more critical acclaim than ever before. “It feels like we’re just starting, in a way,” Travis said. After nearly 10 years of paying dues, they found that their enthusiasm has crowds erupting at festivals just as they do in small clubs.

Awkwardness aside, where do –Confused and Concerned First and foremost, let me take the time to congratulate you and your Nancy Drew skills for catching your man-on-man-admiring, porn-addict ed boyfriend. Those frat guys (this is, of course, a complete assumption) are usually uber secretive a blurred-out headshot and a call for “discreet bottoms only.” And now to get to the bottom of your question (pun intended). Your response, after the initial awkwardness of watching your boyfriend get his jollies off of another man’s jollies, should depend on what you caught him clicking his mouse to. If we’re talking about some form of hardcore back-door action, then yes, perhaps you should be a little alarmed. But if your Sperry-wearing, too-busy-to-hangout-with-you-because-he’s-”rushing” boyfriend was caught in the act watching a clip of softcore, no-bigdeal, naked vacuuming – with a little soft petting and second-base action – perhaps he’s just trying to bone up on his skills or even learn something new to impress you with in the bedroom. No, I’m totally kidding. than your Bichon Frise’s pink fur bows either way you look at it. As awkward as it might be, have you talked with him about it? Although you can’t assume your boyfriend is gay (I mean, he is, but don’t just assume it), maybe this cat-out-of-the-bag “accident” was the best thing to happen to him. Coming out, especially to one’s girlfriend or boyfriend, is an emotional process that requires the utmost sensitivity. Hopefully, he won’t react with hostility at the insinuation he enjoys a good circle jerk more than your intimate company, and, hopefully, this will turn into a productive conversation for both of you that will enhance your friendship, not ruin it. And look on the bright side: Now you will always have a truthful answer when you ask him if your ass looks fat in your favorite dress. Have a sexy question? Email Jared at jmisner@ alligator.org aveToon by KAT BEIN avenue staff writer Last Friday, Mayor Craig Lowe came out, again, and in brilliant colors. mayor has been immortalized by one of the city’s most enigmatic artists, Tom Miller, and the portrait was unveiled at local gay mecca University Club. Miller, a 44-year-old jack-of-alltrades who calls himself a “shitty artist,” has painted prominent former Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and former Police Chief Wayland Clifton. But for Miller, this portrait hits deeper and is more personal, an homage to someone he sees as a local hero. “He is somebody who will listen to anybody in this town no matter who you are or where you came from,” he said. The portrait is a mixed-media piece that depicts the standing with his arms crossed and his head looking forward and up, as if to the future. His body is a black and white picture pasted over large, horizontie has been cut out so that the underlying colors shine through. “This is my way of honoring him and letting him know that the artists in town like him, or at least I do,” Miller said. For the rest of this story, visit us online at www.alligator.org/the_av enue. Lowe portrait debuts by JON SILMAN avenue staff writer Not being able to punch women makes me want to punch a woman. Before you call the cops on me, let me explain. makings of an epic mobster melodrama somewhere between “Scarface” and “The Godfather.” (And it was playable, too! Sweet Jesus.) All 2K Games had to do was improve on the What they did, however, was not that. Why does this game suck so much? All I know is I tried to play this travesty of a game and by the “Grand Theft Auto.” This is supposed to supply the player with a sense of freedom — a way to control your own destiny without being put on a re peat violence/sex offender list. But there are no side missions. clothes. And all the real missions are “drive to this ware house and then drive back.” If I wanted to drive all day, I’d deliver pizzas. Also in this bomb, losing the cops is impossible. If you shoot someone, somehow those 1940s policemen have GPS tracking devices and transpor tation machines. So the game tells you to change clothes to lose your wanted level but you can’t go into the clothes store with one. And you can’t buy new clothes ‘cause you’re wanted, so you have to steal them and (naturally) shoot the cashier, which gives you a different kind of wanted level. Then you steal a car and get a third type of wanted level. Then you die, and when you restart you’re still wanted by the cops. Then your girlfriend gets mad at you ‘cause you kicked the dog. gripe: you can’t punch women. I’m not a proponent of this in real life, but it’s a video game. Part of the fun of “Grand Theft Auto” was getting prostitutes and then (naturally) beating them. I mean, our guy is a mobster. Since when are they shining beacons of chivalry? In conclusion, this game blows harder than Katrina did. I suggest you poop in a box and send 2K Games a stinker of your own. Jared MisnerSex Columnist sex and the swamp Joey Flechas / Alligator staffBrothers Eric and Travis Atria share a kindred moment. Their band, Morningbell, has a show Friday at Common Grounds.

You Decide. Local Muslims say violence won't solve Dove problem 0 ANTI-VIOLENCE GROUPS ARE COMING TOGETHER TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT THREATS AGAINST THE CHURCH DO NOT REPRESENT ALL MUSLIMS. By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer Amid the controversy surrounding the Dove World Outreach Center's plan to burn the Quran on Sept. 11, Islamic groups have been advising Muslims to not let their frustration turn into violence. Ziad Ghanimi, spokesman for the Gainesville Muslim Initiative, said the local Muslim community condemns any form of violence against the church's pastor, Terry Jones, or its members. "It's counterproductive to be violent," he said. "We should try to engage in a discussion." Ghanimi said an attack on the church would only bolster Jones' stance. "Violence will not make him change his mind," he said. "It will just confirm his position especially if those that are violent are Muslims." The condemnation comes after The Gainesville Sun reported receiving a death threat directed toward Jones Tuesday evening. According to the article, the Sun gave the Jones letter to the Gainesville Police Department, who is investigating the matter. In a statement released by The American Muslim Association of North America on Wednesday, the group condemns the Quran burning but denounces violent reaction to the event. "We would like to remind that Islam calls for vigorous condemnation of such hateful acts, but always within the margins of law and order," the statement said. The statement was signed by 15 imams -Islamic leaders -and Ahmed Al Mehdawi, president of the Islamic Center of Gainesville. Sofian Zakkout, director of the American Muslim Association of North America, said Muslims should exhibit tolerance and control because violence only weakens America's sense of unity. "Our enemies would be looking at us and laughing at us," he said. "We would be doing their job for them."

Bed-bug invasions on the rise By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Staff Writer Students may have something to be itchy about. Bed bug infestations are becoming more and more common on college campuses, crawling between the sheets with students and biting them while they sleep. Their numbers have exploded in the past five years, said Wayne Walker, senior pest control technician for UF's Department of Housing and Residence Education. "Most of us in the industry believe it's because of increased international travel and truly a lack of awareness by most people that it is a problem," Walker said. "Most of the bed bug issues are brought in by people traveling in hotels and motels and ending up back in their residence or them picking up used furniture." A bed bug is a small, blood-sucking insect whose adult form is around a quarter-inch in length, Walker said. The bug is from the same family as stinkbugs, and if a lot of them are in one room, there is a noticeable smell. Though the bugs are not known to transmit any diseases, their bite has been known to On cause an uncomfortable Campus itch and, in some cases, an allergic reaction. Walker, as well as Roberto Pereira, another UF bed bug expert, said the problem has not affected UF's dormitories as much as it has affected other campuses. In the past five years, there have been about four bed bug occurrences in the UF dormitories, Walker said. However, graduate students have not been so lucky.

The Onondaga County Sheriff said Stanley Lostumbo jumped into a dump truck Tuesday night after being accused of stealing from vending machines at a mall. Police pursued the truck on a highway, through backyards and school grounds and down railroad tracks at speeds up to 65 mph before stopping it at a barricade in East Syracuse. Police said Lostumbo reversed the truck and hit a sheriff's vehicle and officers fired, apparently striking Lostumbo in the shoulder. He was briefly hospitalized for minor injuries. Deputies were questioning Lostumbo. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 3 ACADEMIC UF info center opens at Santa Fe College By DEZMA GAINER Alligator Contributing Writer UF and Santa Fe College students seeking an online degree have a new UF resource available to them. The grand opening of the UF @ Santa Fe Center, also known as the Gator Den, took place Wednesday morning. Located in Building H of Santa Fe's Northwest campus at 3000 NW 83rd Street, the Gator Den is a partnership between UF and Santa Fe. The goal of the facility is to provide easier access to online degree programs and help prepare transfer students for entrance into UF. UF is currently offering online degree programs in business administration and sports management through Santa Fe, but more will be added as the new program expands. Steve Dorman, dean of the UF College of Health and Human Performance, said only a small percentage of adults in Florida have a bachelor's degree. Because of these statistics, Dorman said, it is important to make education more available to residents across the state of Florida. "This is two government agencies getting it right for the betterment of Floridians," Dorman said. UF paid for the building's renovation, which cost about $200,000, according to Santa Fe's website, sfcollege.edu. UF and Santa Fe will split the cost of a full-time adviser/ recruiter, who will give information about UF's distance-learning programs and transferring to UF. Luis Giraldo / Alligator Santa Fe College president Jackson Sasser speaks at the grand opening of the UF @ Santa Fe Gator Den center on the Santa Fe College campus Wednesday morning. UF professors developed a beg-bug 'cooker' to combat infestations BUGS, from page 1 festations are reported per year in graduate housing, Walker said. Off campus, the number of cases per year is even greater, though the bed bug problem is not as bad in Florida as it is in other states, Pereira said. Students should immediately notify oncampus pest control if they discover bed bugs in dormitories or graduate housing. Bed bugs, particularly young ones, are difficult to see with the naked eye. Baby bed bugs are clear and about the size of a period on a printed paper, Pereira said. When bed bugs feed, they defecate, he said. So, the best way to look for bed bugs is to look for black spots on linens. Pereira, along with Walker and another professor, Phillip Koehler, came up with a simple solutiontothebed-bug problem -cookthem. They put up walls around infested items, such as blankets, with Styrofoam panels, and then place a heater or fan inside On to create, in effect, an oven. CampUS They then monitor the temperature inside the "oven" until all the bed bugs are dead. Though the design is simple and could be built at home, Pereira advised potential home bed bug warriors to leave it to the experts. Bed bugs are typically harmless aside from causing an uncomfortable itching sensation, although Walker said bed bugs could be harmful in other ways. "When you share your bed with a bed bug, it's a traumatic experience of sharing your bed with something that feeds on you," he said.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2,2010 Fair touts benefits of alternative transportation By REBECCA ASTORGA Alligator Contributing Writer Freshman Xavier Hanson didn't break a sweat during his bike ride outside the Reitz Union on Wednesday morning. He said he felt like he was doing half the work. The battery helping to propel the bicycle did the rest. This Sanyo Eneloop bicycle was the newest display at the third annual Alternative Transportation Fair hosted by the UF Office of Sustainability. Organizations such as Gators for a Sustainable Campus, Sustainable UF and the American Solar Energy Society set up tables at the fair to hand out brochures and help promote energyefficient transportation alternatives. The fair was held to help promote the One Less Car Challenge, which encourages students and faculty to use alternative transportation through Nov. 19. Ashley Pennington, outreach coordinator for the Office of Sustainability, said she hoped the fair helped students and faculty become more aware of the many benefits of alternative transportation, such as riding the bus, biking or walking to school. "By not taking a car to places, people don't have to pay for gas money and struggle to find parking spaces. They can also help the environment by helping to reduce pollution in the air," Pennington said. The One Less Car Challenge is also directed toward making people more physically active. UF Senior Veronica Urdaneta said riding her bike to school is a simple form of exercise for her. "I'm not only helping out the environment, but I'm also doing good to my body by riding my bike around on campus," she said. Students who visited the fair walked away with T-shirts, alligator-shaped erasers and other goodies from the different displays, in addition to being able to test drive the bikes. The American Solar Energy Society showcased Photon, a solar-powered tricycle. "There are so many options to get around campus besides driving a car, and Photon is proof that getting around can be interesting," said UP senior Sammy Shams.

Local used-car prices a bargain U NATIONAL USED CAR PRICES HAVE GONE UP. vehicle is $19,248, an increase of $1,800 from last year's By SAMANTHA SHAVELL Alligator Contributing Writer Used-car prices are increasing nationally, but Gainesville consumers can still find good deals. Research from Edmunds.com, an online resource that estimates car values, shows that the prices of used cars increased by about 10 percent nationally since last July. But Ramon Young, a car salesman at Gatorland PreOwned Superstore, said he's seen no change in prices. "People find used cars less expensive," he said. "They do research on new vehicles so we have to keep our prices down." Today, the estimated national price for a three-year-old price. And in the last 12 months, used-car and -truck prices increased 17 percent and some sport utility vehicles are up 30 percent since last July, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Consumer Price Index Summary. The spike in prices may be a result of consumers' economic confidence. "A lack of confidence in the economy is driving more people to used cars, putting upward pricing pressure on a limited supply of vehicles," said Joe Spina, a senior analyst for Edmunds.com, in a press release. David Denslow, a UF economics professor thinks the increase in prices is also partly due to the Cash for Clunkers program, which paid people to trade in their old cars for new ones and thus increased the supply of used cars. "Now that that's gone, people are holding onto their old cars so there's not much supply and it is holding up prices," Denslow said. A Lidia Mesina, 23, shops for a used car at First Place Auto Sales on North Main Street. Area Internet may get Google boost By SHANEECE DIXON Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville Internet providers like Cox Communications, Gainesville DSL and Gator.Net advertise lightning-fast service; however, consumers are finding that their Internet access isn't always as fast as it is advertised to be. A new report by the Federal Communications Commission shows that users are paying for speeds of 7-8 megabits per second on average, but are receiving only about half the speed they expect, usually around 4 Mbps. "Cable modems can be problematic," said Jeff Shelton, a customer service support specialist at Gator.Net. "They can be affected by the weather and humidity. It's the same thing with DSL." While advertisers are able to use the maximum speeds that their service may reach, service can slow down because of net congestion Around a long delay between the server's transmission and the consumer's reception of information. Though many users may not realize their Internet service is slower than advertised, some residents are trying to change the way Gainesville receives its Internet. Dave Pokorney of UF Computing & Networking Services is campaigning for Google to build a fiber network in Gainesville, which would deliver data transfer rates of 1 gigabit per second. "I'm very hopeful that it comes to Gainesville," Pokorney said. "This will make Cox and DSL look like dial-up does now." Though many cities are competing to be the home of Google's gigabit fiber, Gainesville is a strong contender with help from groups like Gig 4 Gainesville.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Campus, local groups weigh in on NYC mosque THE MOSQUE PLANNED NEAR GROUND ZERO. By HANNAH LEACH Alligator Contributing Writer Although hundreds of miles separate Gainesville from the site of the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, the issue resonates deeply for many Gainesville residents. Local religious representatives are weighing in on the mosque, which has sparked much debate nationally as to whether an Islamic place of worship should be built near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks. Ismail ibn Ali, the president of Islam on Campus, believes that having a mosque near Ground Zero is a good idea. After hearing about the proposed mosque, Ali said that he never thought the location would cause such a controversy. "I see it as another building close by," he said. Members of other religious faiths, such as Kristi Colson, the president of the Christian Student Association, believes Americans, no matter what their religious preferences, should be able to practice freely. For Colson, the Sept. 11 attacks are not a reflection of the Muslim faith as a whole. "The Sept. 11 acts were done out of religious zeal, but I trust that not all of them are News like this," Colson said. Others, such as Keith Dvorchik, the executive director of Hillel, had a hard time forming an opinion regarding the issue. Initially, Dvorchik felt conflicting opinions when hearing about the anticipated mosque and Islamic center. He said the terrorist attacks still strike powerful emotions with the public and placing a mosque near this site is very controversial. He admitted to feeling a little skeptical at first about the prospect of having a mosque so close to Ground Zero given the political implications. However, after doing some personal research, he said the public needs to remember that not all Muslims are terrorists. "They have every right to [build] it there," he said. One of the things that made him come around was that he believed the mosque would focus more on the community aspect and would have a positive impact. Dvorchik believes that the ability to practice one's religion without fear of repercussion is something that, no matter what one's faith, should be respected. "The beauty of America is that they have the right to do it there," Dvorchik said. Southwest Rec debuts state-of-the-art hand scanners By JESSICA KAUFMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Melissa Pender can be described as a gym regular. Five days a week, she, like many other UF students, travels to Southwest Recreation Center to take advantage of all the state-of-the-art equipment. However, Pender has been plagued with a recurring problem that has hindered her workout plans-a lack of ID. Without her Gator 1 Card, Pender can't enter the gym. "I must have lost mine at least three times since freshman year," said Pender, a journalism junior. Now, as part of Southwest Rec's recent multi-million dollar renovation, students such as Pender won't need to worry about missing a workout due to a lost student ID. Instead of waiting in line to get their Gator 1 Cards swiped, students can enter Southwest Rec by punching in their UF ID numbers and placing their hand on the gym's newly installed HandKeys. David Bowles, the director of the Department of Recreational Sports at UF, said the staff had to undergo training to learn the HandKey software. In less than two weeks, more than 10,000 students have enrolled in the system to use the HandKeys, said Pamela "These Hand Keys have the potential to be very useful in a lot of applications around campus." David Bowles Director, Department of Recreational Sports Hightower, coordinator of operations for UF's Department of Recreational Sports. Hightower said about 400 new students enroll a day. With thousands of hands touching each machine a day some students have expressed concerns about the sanitation of the HandKeys. "I never really thought about the cleanliness until I saw a really sweaty guy use the HandKey right before me," said Matt Heller, a freshman at UF Hightower said these students do not have to worry. The surfaces of the HandKeys are built with BioCote, an anti-microbial surface. The HandKeys also undergo specialized weekly cleaning. Although the technology is relatively new to UF, Southwest Rec officials remain optimistic the new feature will catch on. "These HandKeys have the potential to be very useful in a lot of applications around campus," Bowles said.

An explosive device on the gunman'sbody detonated when police shot News him, Manger said. Police were trying to determine whether two boxes and two backpacks the gunman had also contained explosives. A law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing said authorities had identified James J. Lee as the likely suspect.

Authorities also sent in a robot to disarm the explosive on the gunman's body. Police Capt. Paul Police push people back from near the front of the headquarters of the Discovery Channel networks building while a gunman, James Lee, held three hostages inside in Silver Spring, Md., on Wednesday. Lee was convicted of disorderly conduct for a protest he organized outside Discovery's offices in February 2008. According to court records, he paid homeless people to carry signs and set off a scramble when he threw fistfuls of cash into the air, calling it "just trash." Lee served two weeks in jail after his arrest during which doctors evaluated his competency to stand trial. County State's Attorney John McCarthy said Lee was ordered to stay 500 feet away from Discovery headquarters as part of his probation, which ended two weeks ago. A magistrate ordered a doctor's evaluation, but the result was not immediately available Wednesday. "The Discovery Channel produces many so-called 'Environmental Programs' supposedly there to save the planet," Lee said in an ad he took out in a Washington newspaper to promote the protest. "But the truth is things are getting WORSE! Their programs are causing more harm than good." David Leavy, Discovery's executive vice president for corporate affairs, said all employees had been accounted for. "We're relieved that it ended without any harm to our employees," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2,2010 Barack the boat Obama undertakes Mid-East peace talks Y ou can't say the man doesn't have goals. As President Obama announced the end of the American combat mission in Iraq from the fancy-schmancy, newly decorated Oval Office in his address to the nation Tuesday evening, an onslaught of new issues came forward. Topping that list were revamping the economy because apparently stimulus packages, national rebate programs and financial bailouts were not enough to get us to buy stuff; successfully ending America's mission in Afghanistan; and ending the nebulously defined War On Terror. And if that wasn't enough to fill one man's plate, President Obama wants to, for real this time, bring peace to the Middle East. Is it us or are these peace pow-wows becoming more and more like trying to sit through "The Neverending Story" every year? We're with you, Mr. President. We love peace more than $5 footlongs (how's that for a stimulus plan?). In fact, we feel the world could use maybe even a little bit more of that whole peace thing. But how realistic are these talks? It doesn't typically spell out a clean agreement when both warring parties are largely opposed to substantial compromise. Since the beginning of time, well, no, more like since the U.N. bullied its way through the Middle East and gave Israel its own state, our newspapers, radios and TVs have been plagued with reports of war in the Middle East. We can only hope President Obama has a few tricks up his sleeve because that's exactly what the world needs right now a little magic. Ta-Ta Tussel Sometimes its funny to remember that states like South Dakota still exist when they're brought into the news. And sometimes it's even funnier to read why they're in the news. This week, a high school near Sioux Falls, S.D., banned a bracelet aiming to promote cancer awareness -a bracelet that does so with the slogan "I love boobies." The brazen bracelets have caused controversy in other states across the country, including our very own Sunshine State. The South Dakota girl accused of a major dress-code violation worse than those "Female Body Inspector" Tshirts has a history of breast cancer in her family, and she says she was simply trying to bring attention to the issue afflicting her family. The issue at hand is not whether people love boobies -clearly a vast majority do -but whether school-aged children maintain their right to free speech within a public school setting. Clearly, they don't. This very same issue became national news when Gainesville children came to school with T-shirts that said "Islam is of the Devil." And although the issues of boobies and supposed Satanic Muslims are a little bit different, the concept is the same. We doubt a little bosom-loving bracelet action distracted students, and we support the cause behind the bracelets as well as a student's right to express their beliefs as they so choose. All in all, we want to save the Ta Tas as much as anyone else. And, really, there's not much more to write about South Dakota if we're not talking about Mount Rushmore. a ll te independent forida Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii 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?

I believe our country's founding is inseparable from Judeo-Christian philosophies. However, it is also an American's right to hold himself to the tenets, philosophies and practices of any religion, spirituality or non-religion he deems appropriate. Recently, the "Restoring Honor" rally was hosted in Washington, D.C., with reports of more than 100,000 people from all demographics and backgrounds attending. The speakers reminded those listening to rely on God for relief from the burdens of life and associated hardships. However, the fiery debate still rages between those who seek to eradicate all traces of Judeo-Christian philosophy from our government and those who seek to preserve those principles. To separate the idea of civil rights from the Judeo-Christian principle of moral obligation and the idea of a higher power is to devalue our liberty as Americans. As Alexander Hamilton argued, to separate the two concepts is "the most manifest violation of justice." Espoused by Enlightenment philosophers such as John Locke and as stated in the Declaration of Independence, the rights to life and liberty are ordained from no less a power than God. A 2007 Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life study found that about 75 percent of Americans are either religious or take no offense to public mentions of God on currency, monuments, etc. However, we still find our legal system entangled in cases to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and to ban Bible study clubs from public high schools. Yes, the classic separation-of-church-and-state argument has to come into play somewhere. Let's deconstruct this argument. The exact term "separation of church and state" is found nowhere within America's founding documents. Instead, Thomas Jefferson used the phrase to alleviate the concerns of a Baptist ministry that America would be prone to adopt a specific Christian denomination. Jefferson makes the same point I would advocate by using that phrase. Essentially, he points out there is to be no specified or accepted practice of religion by the government. Bryan Griffin This does not mean, however, letters@alligator org our government cannot adhere to the Judeo-Christian philosophy in its operation. The wording of the First Amendment supports such an idea, as well. The establishment and freedom of exercise clauses prevent specification on the part of the government. At this point, I must caution us to the danger of separating God from government. If the secularist movement prevails and the idea of "inalienable natural rights as granted by God" is defeated, then what is to prevent the reinstitution of slavery or discrimination at the behest of a majority? When men are left to determine the rights of one another, those rights are in serious jeopardy. In summation, this issue is of paramount importance to each of us, and at such a tumultuous point in American history we should all be standing up for the continued recognition of our inalienable natural rights, as endowed by God. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in his famous "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," referred to "our constitutional and God-given rights." In that same letter, he also said those engaged in the civil rights movement were "standing up for what is best in the American dream and for the most sacred values in our Judeo-Christian heritage." If we continue to diminish the role of religion in our political dialogue and exclude its manifestations from our public affairs, we will lose the essential foundation of our American rights and freedoms. Our natural rights are our foundation, our backbone, our promise and our future. Bryan Griffin is afirst-year law student. His column appears every Thursday.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 7 A WIINAL SCOURGE N Single-entry visa policy for some int'l students unjust I CANT BELVE THYEE UTOLLW s,. ow. N', V s a UF student, you might take it for granted that you can visit your loved ones whenever you like. It takes but a single call to arrange a visit, a simple drive or, at most, a flight or two. Even if you are an international student, you can plan in advance to visit your family back home during summer or semester breaks. But this is not true for all UF students. Being able to visit their families back home is far out of the imagination and reach for some international students. This is not because of financial difficulties, but instead because of their U.S. visa type. Iranian students are subject to single-entry U.S. visas only. This means they are only allowed to enter the United States once. If they decide to leave, for any reason, they must re-apply for a U.S. visa, which means going through a long and cumbersome administrative process again that might take anywhere from a few weeks to a year. Iranian students who dared to travel outside the U.S. during their studies here, have, many times, ended up losing a semester or two, or even their assistantship positions simply because of this unfair policy. Some even end up saying goodbye to their unfinished studies in the U.S. What makes the problem even worse is the U.S. has no embassy in Iran, an issue that forces students to travel to a third country in order to renew their visas. This policy is a result of the bitter relationship between the U.S. and Iranian governments, which has roots in historical events, including the CIAbacked coup in 1953 that overthrew the democratically elected prime minister of Iran and the hostage-taking crisis at the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 following the Islamic revolution in Iran. Some American politicians say Seyyed Amin Terouhid Speaking Out this is a reciprocal policy in response to the same situation Americans face if they travel to Iran. However, this is not true. First, while it is true ran does not offer a multiple-entry visa to U.S. citizens, it does however, allow them to leave and return to the country for a period of three months without obtaining a new visa. Also, all foreign nationals, including Americans, can renew their expired visas inside Iran, a privilege that Iranian students don't have in the U.S. The single-entry visa policy for Iranian students contradicts even what President Obama pledged in his message to Iranians on March 20, saying ".even as we continue to have differences with the Iranian government, we will sustain our commitment to a more hopeful future for the Iranian people. For instance, by increasing opportunities for educational exchanges so that Iranian students can come to our colleges and universities." To sum up, Iranians are very family and community-oriented people, and this harsh policy subjects Iranian students at UF and all other universities in the U.S. to unnecessary stress and frustration. Imagine not being able to visit your family for four years. Is that really fair? Only hope keeps inspiring Iranian students to stay rather than return home. Hope for obtaining competence by studying at high-standard American universities, and hope for the day when tensions between the two governments ease and mutual interests of their citizens are valued. Seyyed Amin Terouhid is a PhD student at the M.E. Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction. John McCain doesn't represent the definition of 'maverick' he blare of heavy artillery could be heard across Arizona last week as the state's Republican senatorial primary candidates battled for their political lives. When the final rounds were fired and the smoke had cleared, one man emerged victorious. Vietnam War veteran, 2008 Republican presidential nominee and four-term United States Sen. John McCain claimed victory in last week's primary. He will now face off against Democratic nominee Rodney Glassman in hopes of serving his fifth, and quite possibly final, term as Arizona's senator. Unfortunately, McCain's triumph in this primary election has proven that he is willing to do anything, perhaps even sell his soul to the devil, if it will forward his political career. It is clear that the man who once proudly declared himself a "maverick" is no longer worthy of the title. Fervent anti-incumbent sentiment and distrust of the Washington establishment has made this election cycle especially difficult for politicians like John McCain, who has served more than 20 years in Congress. The fact that McCain was once among the most moderate members of the Republican Party has only added fuel to the flame. The GOP is currently undergoing a purge. Moderate members of the party, such as McCain, are being ousted and replaced by more conservative and, in some cases, more radiNyles Kendall cal right-wing candidates. This purge UWire is typified by the emergence of the Tea Party, a far-right, anti-big government political movement whose agenda, among other things, includes promoting racial intolerance and finding the President's Kenyan birth certificate. Any Republican incumbent seeking re-election who is not Tea Party-certified faces the risk of losing his or her conservative credentials as well as a seat in the legislature. McCain and his opponent J.D. Hayworth both received Tea Party endorsements, but apparently McCain didn't believe being endorsed by a cabal of conspiratorial racists was enough to win a reelection. In order to appease his political base, which has been corrupted by the Tea Party movement, McCain has disavowed many of the political positions that set him apart from his counterparts. His stances on climate change, cap and trade, immigration, campaign finance reform and "don't ask, don't tell" gained him the reputation as one of the most centrist members of the Republican Party, though he has flip-flopped on nearly all of these issues now that an election cycle has rolled around. McCain's sudden change of heart on the issue of immigration and amnesty caused a kerfuffle. In fact, the Hayworth campaign made amnesty the centerpiece of their anti-McCain crusade. But oddly enough, McCain now claims he never supported amnesty. Apparently he wants his constituents to forget that he cosponsored a comprehensive immigration reform bill with the very liberal Ted Kennedy that proposed, yes, an amnesty program for more than 12 million illegal immigrants. Now, McCain can be seen in overly-dramatic and poorly-produced campaign ads promising to build a rangedd fence". Furthermore, his support of the draconian SB 1070 has thrown many for a loop. How can a man who was at one point a proponent of amnesty come out in support of an immigration law that turns Arizona's police force into the Gestapo? We all remember the 2008 presidential election when John McCain and the "Disasta from Alaska" drove onto the political stage in their "Straight Talk Express" being all "mavericky" A maverick is defined as "someone who exhibits great independence in thought and action." A maverick does not pander to his base, nor does he seek to appease an unorganized political movement destined to be tossed into the trash heap of history. John McCain is not a maverick. He is a sell-out, willing to sacrifice his principles in order to fulfill his political ambitions. Nyles Kendall is a student at the University of Arizona.

D61> tLS Mafia 2 incites violence and infuriates by JON SILMAN avenue staff writer Not being able to punch women makes me wantto punch a woman. Before you call the cops on me, let me explain. "Mafia 2" was one of the most highly anticipated video games of the lastfiscal quarter. It had all the makings of an epic mobster melodrama somewhere between "Scarface" and "The Godfather." (And it was playable, too! Sweet Jesus.) All 2K Games had to do was improve on the first one a bit, and they'd have a winner. Whatthey did, however, was notthat. Why does this game suck so much? All I know is I tried to play this travesty of a game and by the end of the first hour, I was contemplating suicide. "Mafia 2" is an open sandbox game like "Grand Theft Auto." This is supposed to supply the player with a sense of freedom -a wayto control your own destiny without being put on a repeat violence/sex offender list. But there are no side missions. In "Mafia 2," you can buy clothes. And all the real missions are "drive to this warehouse and then drive back." W If I wanted to drive all day, I'd deliver pizzas. Also in this bomb, losingthe cops is impossible. If you shoot someone, somehow those 1940s policemen have GPS tracking devices and transportation machines. So the game tells you to change clothes to lose your wanted level but you can't go into the clothes store with one. And you can't buy new clothes 'cause you're wanted, so you have to steal them and (naturally) shoot the cashier, which gives you a different kind of wanted level. Then you steal a car and get a third type of wanted level. Then you die, and when you restart you're still wanted by the cops. Then your girlfriend gets mad at you 'cause you kicked the dog. My final gripe: you can't punch women. I'm not a proponent of this in real life, but it's a video game. Part of the fun of "Grand Theft Auto" was getting prostitutes and then (naturally) beatingthem. I mean, our guy is a mobster. Since when are they shining beacons of chivalry? In conclusion, this game blows harder than Katrina did. I suggest you poop in a box and send 2K Games a stinker of your own. With Morningbell, talent runs in the family by JOEY FLECHAS avenue writer It all started on Christmas in 1994 with a pair of guitars, an Aerosmith record and a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tablature book. Throw in years of absorbing The Beatles, The Flaming Lips and soul greats like Otis Redding and Curtis Mayfield, and the education of Morningbell's brother duo Travis and Eric Atria was complete. The Gainesville-based group, known for its psychedelic power-pop anthems and charm, is a family affair for the Atria brothers. With Travis covering vocals and guitar and Eric on bass, they share the stage with drummer Chris Hillman and keyboardistStacie Atria (Eric's wife). The band is playing Common Grounds Friday to mark the digital release of "Sun Come Out," a new EP featuring songs from the sessions from its 2009 outing, "Sincerely, Severely," and for anyone who's ever been a face in the crowd at a Morningbell show, it's in the air: brotherly love. And it's taken time for the brothers to refine their roles in the band. Travis is the artistic force. As the songwriter for the band, the younger Atria says his music has become more accessible, with lyrics that are less about outer space and more about life, love and sex. "There's more body. There's more of a physicality to the music," he said. "I wanted to make somethingthat was undeniable." They agree their brotherly bond over music has only made chasing their artistic dreams easier. "For us, it's like the thing that keeps us going," Eric said. "When we go on tour, we know how to live with each other." Lowe portrait debuts by KAT BEIN avenue staff writer Last Friday, Mayor Craig Lowe came out, again, and in brilliant colors. Gainesville's first openly gay mayor has been immortalized by one of the city's most enigmatic artists, Tom Miller, and the portrait was unveiled at local gay mecca University Club. Miller, a 44-year-old jack-of-alltrades who calls himself a "shitty artist," has painted prominent Gainesville figures before, including former Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and former Police Chief Wayland Clifton. But for Miller, this portrait hits deeper and is more personal, an homage to someone he sees as a local hero. "He is somebody who will listen to anybody in this town no matter who you are or where you came from," he said. The portrait is a mixed-media piece that depicts the mayor as a strong, proud figure, standing with his arms crossed and his head lookingforward and up, as if to the f uture. His body is a black and white picture pasted over large, horizontal stripes of the gay flag colors. His tie has been cut out so that the underlying colors shine through. "This is my way of honoring him and letting him know that the artists in town like him, or at least I do," Miller said. For the rest of this story, visit us online at www.alligator.org/theavenue. It could be surviving an on-stage hiccup or guiding a two-car caravan through New York City traffic. Either way, the Atria brothers take advantage of their family ties. "We have a language between us," Travis said. The chemistry of the band as a whole is tangible on stage. Eric recounted a time when drummer Hillman missed a beat during a show. The band was able to adjust, in lockstep, to the rhythm with just a splitsecond glance at one another. And it's this chemistry that has guided the band through what Travis amusingly calls an "adolescent fantasy." The band saw "Sincerely, Severely" attract national attention and bigger gigs. Since its release in December, Morningbell has played large-scale musicfestivals like South by Southwest and Bonnaroo, and they've had more critical acclaim than ever before. "Itfeels like we're just starting, in a way," Travis said. After nearly 10 years of paying dues, they found that their enthusiasm has crowds erupting at festivals just as they do in small clubs. Visit www.alligator.org/theavenue for the rest of this story. Joey Flechas / Alligator staff Brothers Eric and Travis Atria share a kindred moment. Their band, Morningbell, has a show Friday at Common Grounds. I

Sports THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 Defensive line given more freedom with Austin ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@alligator org Jaye Howard expects to get his hands on ball carriers more often this season, thanks to the leadership of first-year defensive coordinator Teryl Austin,. Howard said his role in the past, along with that of the rest of the defensive linemen, has been to merely occupy blockers so the Gators' linebackers could roam untouched. "We had a freak back there in Brandon Spikes and we were just holding [offensive lineman] up for him, letting him do his thing," said Howard, who has recorded 37 tackles in two seasons. But this year Austin wants his lineman to shed more blocks and get their own tackles. "Anybody that's on the field for us, they have to be able to make plays," he said. "You have to do your job, and sometimes that requires holding the gap and then getting off to make a play." Howard will have an even greater chance to get his name on stat sheets when he moves to defensive end, a spot he said he will occupy in some of Florida's packages this season. He expects the team to run multiple formations when Florida plays Alabama Oct. 2. Although he said he likes the chance to mix his assignments, Howard would have been more excited about the move as a freshman. Entering school weighing just 230 pounds, Howard said he used to hang around the salad bar to keep weight off, hoping to avoid becoming an interior lineman. But, three years and about 80 pounds later, he now prefers playing inside and the contact that goes along with the position. He credits his weight gain to workouts with strength coach Mickey Marotti and "pancake diets" at the dining hall. "You eat like a pig out there," Howard said. "I'm not used to eating that much." Austin on recruiting: Austin has not coached college football since leaving Michigan for the NFL in 2002. He said staying on the phones and in the living rooms of high school prospects has been the most notable adjustment he's had to make. He's noticed an increased amount of attention to recruiting websites and televised all-star games 5 since joining the professional ranks. Football "You never had to deal with that before," he said. "You had guys, usually, coming in just trying to earn their way. With all the media stuff, sometimes they get like, 'Hey, you're ready to go.' But they really don't quite understand what it takes to be a college football player." Jones moving around: The Gators have used all their linebackers at the strongside, weakside and middle positions throughout the preseason in an effort to make each player more versatile. But A.J. Jones is the only member of the unit the coaches feel comfortable enough to play at all three positions in games this season, coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday. Last year, Ryan Stamper played a similar role. "A.J. Jones is basically our Stamper," Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff Defensive tackle Jaye Howard expects to move over to end in some of Florida's defensive packages. Meyer said. Still no second corner: Jeremy Brown and Moses Jenkins have been neck-andneck for the starting cornerback position opposite Janoris Jenkins, and Austin said the decision will not be made until shortly before Florida's season opener noon Saturday against Miami (Ohio). UF VOLLEYBALL New defensive scheme leads to more Gators blocks By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer gluca@alligator org It was the best birthday present assistant coach Dave Boos could ever ask for. With his team leading 14-12 in a decisive fifth set, juniors Kelly Murphy and Cassandra Anderson leaped in the air and sent the attack of Nebraska outside hitter Hannah Werth plummeting back to the floor, lifting the No. 6 Gators to a victory over the then-No. 2 Huskers and their first win against a top-two team since 2003. "We joked beforehand that the team was going to win the match for my birthday," Boos said. "It was really nice to be able to have the team play so well that day." Sunday's victory was significant for Boos due to more than just timing. His newly installed defense led to not just the win over Nebraska but also Saturday's victory against Iowa State. Despite not boasting a player taller than 6-foot-2, the Gators out blocked a Nebraska team featuring 6-foot-5 Morgan Broekhuis, 6-foot-5 Lindsey Licht, 6-foot-4 Brooke Delano and 6-foot-3 Allison McNeal by a count of 14 to 9. In its three most recent matches against Nebraska, UF had never come within seven blocks of the Huskers. "That was one of the key statistics and we've seen it year in and year out in volleyball," UF coach Mary Wise said. "Blocking is one of the really Wise key skills needed to play at an elite level." Boos joined the program in the offseason to try to help the Gators excel in this crucial area, and the switch to his system appears to be paying immediate dividends. Although a number of schools run a variation of the scheme Boos employs, very few, if any, do it exactly like he does. "It's basically a way to have the front court and back court be very coordinated together as a defense," Boos said. "It allows us to take calculated blocking risks during a match, and this weekend I thought that the players did a fantastic job of executing what the gameplan was." Although the players and coaches agree there is still plenty of room for improvement as the season progresses, Florida's 2-0 showing at the Runza/American Volleyball Coaches Association Showcase proves the system has the potential to be everything the team hoped it would. "When the whole thing starts clicking together we should have six people responding as a unit, and that's the ultimate goal by the end of the season," Boos said.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Redhawks to play Gators fresh off one-win season By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Mike Haywood knows how difficult it is to play in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Before he became the coach at Miami (Ohio), Haywood spent eight seasons as an assistant coach at Florida's conference rival LSU. After visiting Gainesville four times as a coach, Haywood is well aware of the difficulties his team will face when it goes up against No. 4 Florida on Saturday at noon. "We talked to our guys about going in and embracing the atmosphere," he said. "We are doing things in practice to give us an advantage, like silent cadence and different things so we really don't need cadences on offense so we can get the ball snapped appropriately." The Redhawks are coming off of a one-win season, but quarterback Zac Dysert has instilled hope. The sophomore signal-caller threw for 2,611 yards last year in 11 games, while also racking up a career-best 426 passing yards against Temple last season. His play has led others to compare Dysert to Miami (Ohio) great Ben Roethlisberger, but his coach isn't going that far. "Due to his knowledge of the offense, [Zac] has become a leader on the field and off the field," Haywood said. "He has the potential and as long as he stays on track -I wouldn't compare him to [Roethlisberger] because he has a couple of Super Bowls -but he is progressing on that line where he can be a quality NFL football player." However, Haywood wants to take pressure off Dysert by developing a rushing attack early in the season. The good news is the team's leading rusher, Thomas Merriweather, returns this year. The bad Haywood news is he only accumulated 291 yards in 2009. "Offensively, we are coming together a lot better," Haywood said. "Dysert is leading us at quarterback, Merriweather at running back and we are still trying to solidify our offensive line at this point." On the defensive side of the ball, the Redhawks will try to improve after allowing 34.2 points per game last season. They return middle linebacker Jerrell Wedge, who led the Mid-American Conference with 18.5 tackles for a loss last year. Still, Florida running back Jeff Demps could be in line for a big day Saturday as Miami (Ohio) struggled to stop the run in 2009, allowing 186.9 rushing yards per game. "Florida is a team with tremendous speed and we have to make sure we find a way to slow this football game down and limit their possessions," Haywood said. Big East boasts expanded venues 0 CONFERENCE TEAMS AVERAGED 44,804 FANS PER GAME IN 2009. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOUISVILLE, Ky. -Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich heard the rumblings four years ago when he led the push to expand Cardinal Stadium. Even though the program was in the midst of a recordbreaking season in which it eventually won the Big East title and the Orange Bowl, Jurich knew some wondered if there really was a need to spend millions upgrading a stadium that was less than a decade old at the time. "a took a lot of criticism, like 'what's this idiot doing?"' Jurich said. Construction continued even as the program and the economy faltered. When Louisville and new coach Charlie Strong take the field against Kentucky on Saturday in the Governor's Cup, the Cardinals will do it in front of a sellout crowd of over 56,000. The facelift includes 33 new luxury suites, over 1,700 club seats, an upper deck with 13,000 chairback seats and a south terrace that provides a view of the twin spires at nearby Churchill Downs. "It's a big-time looking stadium right now," Jurich said. "This puts us in an elite group." To keep up in the Big East these days, it's part of the game. Five years after the conference was left on life support after Virginia Tech, Miami and Boston College bolted for the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Big East is thriving both on the field and at the gate. Rutgers finished a $100 million renovation of its football complex last year. "Since the reorganization, I think every school without exception has made a commitment to improving all facilities," said Rutgers coach Greg Schiano. "It's paramount for the continued growth of our league." And interest is growing. Average attendance in the Big East last year was higher than it was before Boston College split following the 2004 season. The current lineup averaged 44,804 fans a game in 2009, compared to 37,805 in 2004. Those numbers are skewed a bit by Temple, which averaged just over 16,000 fans during it's final year in the conference. Why the uptick in a conference prematurely pronounced dead a few times? Winning helps. Schiano has revitalized Rutgers. West Virginia has won a pair of BCS bowls. South Florida has beaten the likes of Florida State to carve out a niche in the football-heavy Sunshine State. Though Big East teams don't play in the sprawling palaces that can be found in places like the Southeastern Conference, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Bledsoe getting used to middle blocker spot VOLLEY, from page 18 expected to read the other team's attack and coordinate UF's response, both of which are responsibilities they didn't have to worry about last season. But Florida's two starters have taken the new challenges in stride. And after such a successful opening tournament, they have no doubts that the move was a smart one. "I think everyone is responding to it really well, and after seeing it this weekend it completely makes sense," Bledsoe said. "Nobody has any problems following along and jumping on board with it." Anderson has been a consistent force at middle blocker over her first two years, leading the team in blocks both seasons. Bledsoe, on the other hand, is relatively new to the middle blocker position after spending the majority of her time at outside hitter last season. Her first match on the interior came on Nov. 20 against Tennessee, when Florida had just four matches "It definitely helps to have one position and to have something to really focus on. To be able to work on just one thing versus everything will always help." Lauren Bledsoe UF middle blocker left in its regular season. Bledsoe seized the opportunity, recording 45 kills, four solo blocks and 18 block assists in her final seven contests while earning a full-time spot at middle blocker in 2010. After a full offseason of work at the position, Bledsoe expects her play to be even stronger than it was last year. "It definitely helps to have one position and to have something to really focus on," she said. "To be able to work on just one thing versus everything will always help." Alligator File Photo UF middle blocker Cassandra Anderson has led the team in blocks in each of the last two seasons. She is accountable for eight of the team's 25 blocks through two matches this year. A

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2,2010 Hurricanes in talks about playing in Yankee Stadium Al Phloto Coach Randy Shannon and the Hurricanes could play a game in Yankee Stadium during the 2013 season. Miami is looking for an opponent. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CORAL GABLES -Miami is looking to play at Yankee Stadium. Hurricanes athletic director Kirby Hocutt engaged in talks with New York Yankees officials Tuesday and Wednesday about the possibility of Miami playing in the team's new ballpark during the 2013 season, and emerged believing an agreement could be struck. "I feel confident to say the Miami Hurricanes are going to have a presence in New York City," Hocutt told The Associated Press. No potential date, or opponent, has been revealed, although it's likely any game would take place in November because of the baseball playoff schedule. Hocutt said there are "a couple options" on the table, but stressed he wants to make sure any deal is the right fit. "There's obviously a desire on our part to get up into this market," Hocutt said. "The Yankee organization, they've expressed their interest and desire to have the game in the stadium. So I'm confident that there's interest on both sides." Miami already has 10 games -five home, five away -scheduled for 2013, eight of them being Atlantic Coast Conference matchups. The Hurricanes plan to host Florida on Sept. 7, 2013. Miami is scheduled to visit South Florida on Nov. 30 of that year in Tampa, the Yankees' spring training home. That leaves two non-conference dates for the Hurricanes still to fill, and if the Yankee Stadium plan comes together, their likely preference would be to make the sixth road game of the year a neutral-site contest in New York. "I think it's great for college football and the University of Miami," coach Randy Shannon said. "You play teams outside of the conference a lot .and it's an opportunity for us to be in the Northeast, which is a big University of Miami alumni base area." Miami has already added one marquee non-conference, neutral-site game to its upcoming schedule. The A O A, Hurricanes will play Notre a Dame at Chicago's Soldier Field in 2012. There's a number of ties between the Hurricanes and Yankees -including Alex Rodriguez. The Yankees' third baseman nearly enrolled at Miami before signing his first pro deal, has donated millions to his adopted university and is a member of the school's board of trustees. Rodriguez regularly works out at Miami during the offseason as well, but has not been part of these talks between the Hurricanes and the Yankees, Hocutt said. Miami played in the old Yankee Stadium in 1962, losing to Nebraska in what was the final edition of the Gotham Bowl. ....
