With 20 minutes to go and nothing
on the line, Billy Donovan urgent-
ly needed someone to step up and
prove himself as a leader.
Florida was ahead 44-19 to start the sec-
ond half of an exhibition against NAIA op-
ponent Georgetown (Ky.) College, but times
were desperate in Donovan's mind.
After a 2009-10 season in which the
Gators frequently came out flat to start a
half, Donovan was looking for a player to
keep them at maximum intensity and put
the opposition away.
Which of his seniors would take the reins
and lead UF to a strong finish?
Would it be Chandler Parsons, the do-
everything forward who Donovan says
has grown as much as anyone he's ever
coached?
Or maybe Vernon Macklin, the 6-foot-10,
240-pound giant who is becoming the domi-
nant interior force he was expected to be out
of high school?
Even Alex Tyus could rise up and be the
guy, despite apparently wavering in his
commitment to Florida by testing transfer
waters after his sophomore year and feeling
out the early stages of the NBA Draft pro-
cess this past offseason.
The answer? None of the above.
The Tigers started the half on a 7-2 run
over the first 1:02, and Donovan showed
that desperate times called for desperate
measures: He pulled the entire starting five.
"Great teams and really good teams play
for 40 minutes, and we didn't do that,"
Donovan said. "I think there's a leadership
component that our older guys need to step
in to."
With just two days remaining until the
season-opener and only six separating No.
9 UF from a pivotal early-season showdown
against No. 4 Ohio State, the Gators have to
find a leader if the class that came in follow-
ing the historic '04s is to have any hope of
leaving a legacy of its own.

The Natural Fit
The ascension to a leadership position
would be a natural next step for Parsons,
who is a far different player and person than
he was during his freshman campaign.
When the forward first arrived at UF, he
was content sticking to the outside and tak-
ing open jump shots.
Parsons averaged 8.1 points, four re-
bounds and 1.4 assists while playing 20 min-
utes per game as a rookie, and his early pro-
duction gave him a false sense of security.


"After his freshman year he thought it
was going to be pretty easy," Donovan said.
"Then all of a sudden he got really, really
humbled."
Parsons made only modest increases in
production despite earning a starter's mm-
utes as a sophomore, and his up-and-down
year came to an end when the team lost in
the National Invitational Tournament quar-
terfinals.
But that disappointing finish marked a
turning point in his career.
"He came to a crossroads of saying, 'I
really have to take a deep look inside my-
self and find out how I have to get better,'"
Donovan said.
For Parsons, that meant realizing his true
potential and becoming a more well-round-
ed player.
Parsons rededicated himself in the weight
room, worked on his ability to rebound and
create off the dribble, and retooled his mind-
set.
"He was never in the right place men-
tally," Donovan said. "He dealt with it after
his sophomore year and really started to be-
come better."
Parsons' improvement was evident last
season, as he saw increases in almost every
statistical category and became the face of
the program after hitting buzzer-beaters
against North Carolina State and South UF small forward Chandler Parsons averaged a career-high 12.4 points, 6.9 rebounds ar

Donovan describes Macklin as a player
Switch a strong voice and a desire to win who
is still learning how to lead because of the
turbulent start to his career.
Despite the learning curve, the center
has shown his capacity to provide wisdom
and guidance through his early dealings
with Rutgers transfer Mike Rosario, who is
facing the same challenges Macklin battled
through when he sat out.
"Vernon Macklin gave me some point-
ers on what I can do while I'm not playing,"

Rosario said. "He's been there for me since
day one."
In addition to leadership, Donovan ex-
pressed the desire to see Macklin progress
as both a scorer and a rebounder - develop-
ments expected after a busy offseason that
included a trip to the LeBron James Skills
Academy.
"He's worked hard, but he himself has to
be able to handle adversity and be a calm-
ing force," Donovan said. "And there's no
doubt in my mind that he can do that."
The role would seem to fit Macklin like
a glove, as the publicly soft-spoken senior
has been tagged by many of his teammates
as the funniest player on the team due to his
off-court antics.
Still, Donovan and the Gators understand
all of Macklin's actions in practice and out-
side the gym mean nothing if he can't bring
it on game days.
"I'm a vocal person, I just have to not
let little things get to me," Macklin said. "If
something isn't going my way I still have to
be a vocal person and still be a leader."
The silver lining from the Georgetown
game is that the Gators won by 26 points,
and one could make the argument that they
never truly faced the adversity Donovan
wants them to overcome.
Perhaps if the lead were two instead of
25, the seniors would've come out with the
fire, intensity and leadership that could
be the difference between a deep NCAA
Tournament run and another first-round
exit.
Only time will tell whether the second
half against Georgetown was an aberration
or a premonition for Macklin, Parsons and
the rest of the Gators.
Step one is two days away.

Veterans to share war experiences

As Lt. Marion Gordy flew back from a
mission in Berlin in April 1944, his plane
was attacked by German anti-aircraft
guns.
After the plane hit the ground, Gordy,
who is now 93, and his men were seized by
the citizens of a small Berlin town and tak-
en to the town square, where the citizens
intended to hang their prisoners. Just as the
noose was placed around his neck, he was
saved by a German officer, who arrived to
take the men away for interrogation.

Faculty to


track Haiti


cholera


outbreak
By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Staff Writer

UF health researchers are returning to
Haiti this week to track the recent cholera
outbreak and to help educate locals about
how to treat and prevent the disease.
Almost 600 Haitians have died as
a result of the outbreak - the first in
nearly 60 years. And the disease has now
reached Port-au-Prince, the nation's capi-
tal.
UF faculty members are traveling to
the Gressier/ Leogane area, located about
12 miles west of Port-au-Prince, to take
samples to determine the source of the
cholera bacterium. They will also distrib-
ute 1,000 oral rehydration packets, which
were assembled by College of Pharmacy
faculty and students.
The students helped measure and
package individual
U F doses of the chemical
Research mix included in the
packets.
The packets include documents in
Haitian Creole to educate people in the
region about preventative measures
against cholera.
"When cholera strikes, it strikes very
quickly, with large numbers of cases pre-
senting all at once," said Glenn Morris,
director of the Emerging Pathogens Insti
tute in a press release.
With millions of Haitians still dis-
placed and living in poor conditions after
January's earthquake, conditions were
ripe for the spread of the bacterial infec-
tion.
"When people migrated, it com-
pounded the problem," said Afsar All, a
UF research associate professor in envi-
ronmental and global health.
All and Bernard Okech, a research
assistant professor, will spend a week

County awarded big grant


* IT RECEIVED $4.5 MILLION IN TAX
CREDITS FOR HEALTH AND JOBS.

By LIDIA DINKOVA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Ten Alachua County biotechnology compa-
nies, nine of them UF-affiliates, received a con-
siderable financial boost this week in an effort
to advance health care reform and create more
jobs.
The Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Proj-
ect Program awarded $4.5 million worth of tax
credit grants to the companies as part of the
health care law passed in March.
"I definitely think its a great opportunity,
specifically here in Gainesville where there are
so many small companies and entrepreneurs,
to allow them to turn their ideas into real prod-
ucts," said Amanda Burks, director of opera-
tions at Optima Neuroscience Inc., an Alachua
company that develops software and devices for
the treatment of neurological disorders.
Optima Neuroscience Inc. was awarded
$244,479, which will be used to pay for research
done in 2009 on seizure detection software.
According to a BioFlorida press release, an
association that represents Florida bioscience in-
dustries, companies that showed the potential to
produce cost-saving therapies and technologies


were awarded the grants.
Only firms with 250 employees or less were
allowed to apply.
"The majority of new jobs created are cre-
ated by small and entrepreneurial companies,"
said Stephanie Warrington, vice president of
corporate affairs and business development at
Xhale Inc. "Investing in these companies is ba-
sically the government investing in future job
creation."
Two new employment opportunities were
generated at Optima Neuroscience Inc. since the
firm received the grant.
"Investing in these companies is
basically the government investing
in future job creation."
Stephanie Warrignton
Vice president at xhale inc.

Xhale Inc. received $422,771 from the grant,
which will be used to rapidly bring improved
breathalyzers to the market.
The other companies that benefited from the
grant are: Applied Genetic Technologies Corp.,
Banyan Biomarkers Inc., EnCor Biotechnology
Inc., eTect LLC, Nanotherapeutics Inc., OxThera
Inc., Quick-Med Technologies Inc. and Conver-
gence Engineering Inc., the only non UF-affili-
ate.


Student comedians


to tackle pop culture


By LIBERTY BOSTWICK
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF's improve comedy and sketch
group, Theatre Strike Force, is per-
forming a review of pop culture from
the past 10 years Thursday at 8 p.m.
in the Rion Ballroom.
The show, Wreckade, is a satirical
look at the events from this past de-
cade that may stand out in people's
minds, said Devin Donohue, vice
president of the group.
Donahue said every semester
the student organization has a large
show like this. Preparation started at
the beginning of the fall term.
The troupe allowed students out-
side of the organization to write and
audition for the show. The team this
year is much larger compared to past
years, Donahue said.


Group members also sought stu-
dent ideas for the show, he said.
"We spent a lot of time trying to
get people sitting in the North Lawn
to tell us what they remember most
from the decade," he said. "We got
a lot of really good ideas from it and
used a lot of them in videos used in
the show."
Sports, environmental issues, en-
tertainment and politics
On quickly rose to the top
Campus of the suggestions from
the group's writers.
LizAnderson, director of the show,
said the show will run for about an
hour and there will be seating for 200
people. She said her main goal is to
give the audience a fun review of the
last decade.
"I really just want people to come
and laugh. That's it," she said.

UF ACADEMICS

Professor part


of nation-wide


research team
By ROBIN PISAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The room was packed, and Pam Soltis was especially
nervous.
When she presented her research findings to a group of
50 people, she was met with disbelief from her colleagues,
who :'.-:.:, r. .11: questioned her results. The year was 1995,
and it was a time when very little was known about Ambo-
rella trichopoda, a shrub native to the South Pacific island of
New Caledonia.
She proposed that it was a common ancestor to all an-
giosperms, or flowering plants. This includes an estimated
300,000 species. With a position closer to the base of the evo-
lutionary tree than any other known to exist, it could pro-
vide insight into the development of countless plant types.
Fifteen years later, Pam Soltis, a UF professor and cura-
tor of molecular systematics and evolutionary genetics at
the Florida Museum of Natural History, is part of a nation-
wide team dedicated to sequencing its genome. The $7.3
million project funded by the National Science Foundation,
which will last four years, is a .:.-11 -I:.. :, ._. effort of five
universities.
In addition to UF's three primary researchers, there will
also be opportunities for two undergraduate students to get
involved, Soltis said. Each participating university will en-
list the help of students, who will present their findings at
an annual symposium.
"This is a puzzle beyond any puzzle that you've ever
seen," said Doug Soltis, project co-investigator and UF pro-
fessor of biology.
The project is like taking the most complex airplane, dis-
assembling it down to the nuts and bolts and putting it back
together, he said. It will provide the best hint as to what the

Through this project, the shrub's re-
lation to other plants will become more
apparent, Pam Soltis said. It will give
the world a broader perspective of an-
giosperms's evolutionary track, as well
as provide better insight for agricultural
purposes.
snii Once it is known what genes are com-
Soltis only found in different crops, it will be
easier to see which are worth manipulating, she said. If a
gene that predisposes a plant to a disease is found through-
out an entire evolutionary branch, she said, it would not be
worth the effort needed to control it.
A. trichopoda's position in the plant world has gone rela-
tively unnoticed because it is rarely encountered by people,
Doug Soltis said. Aside from captivity, it is only found
growing in the high altitude regions of one island.
"It's a bit weird," he said. "No one plays around with it
too much."
Finding the best combinations for the plant to grow has
been tough, he said. It has different growth needs that can
be difficult to pinpoint because little research has been done
about its native soil composition.
UF had five of them before three suddenly died, appar-
ently of a root disease, he said. The survivors will be used
in the project.
The shrub's natural growing conditions aren't its only
mystery. New Caledonia, the shrub's natural home, is esti-
mated to be older than the plant, he said. It is likely that birds
ate the tiny fruit it bears before traveling to the island.
He hopes to have a first draft of A. trichopoda's genome
complete by the beginning of next year. From there, the re-
searchers will continue their work to make it as accurate as
possible.
The budget may allow for more work to be done than
was initially proposed, he said. As technology becomes
more advanced, they are able to do the sequencing cheaper
and faster. He said they will be able to do more with the
money than they could have years ago.
Charles Darwin once referred to the appearance of flow-
ering plants as an "abominable mystery." He was baffled by
their sudden emergence and rapid diversification. To this,
Doug Soltis said that this research is one more step toward
solving it. He is skeptical this will ever be complete because
one answer only leads to more questions.

Space heaters may be money wasters


Central heating is more energy efficient


By T.J. MORRELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students running out to buy space
heaters to survive the winter may want
to reconsider the purchase.
Many think using a space heater in
your room is a cheap solution to getting
warm and saving money.
But Amy Marty, the corporate com-
munications director at Gainesville Re-
gional Utilities, said space heaters actu-
ally use more i_ i.-, - - and waste more
electricity than some would imagine.
The little electricity-sucking heaters
are easy to find around Gainesville. Wal-
mart, Lowe's and Home Depot are just a
few of the stores that supply them.
These locations offer space heaters
with prices ranging anywhere from
$29.99 up to $269.
At first glance, the choice seems obvi-


ous considering a central heating system
can easily cost a person a couple grand
for the initial installation and monthly
,_- i.- - - bills can skyrocket during the
winter.
"If you raise the temperature
by only one degree, it will in-
crease your bill by 4 percent."
Amy Marty
corporate communications director

But Marty said space heaters are not
a good choice to save electricity and that
GRU, if needed, can help a person by as-
sessing their ,- ,.-_ - usage.
GRU will conduct a free home en-
ergy audit, Marty said. Representatives
from the company will come to a cus-
tomer's house and check his or her en-
ergy and water usage to determine how


to save money. One 1,500-watt space
heater running for a month in an aver-
age 12-by-12 room for only six hours a
day would cost a person around $40.
Marianne Silva, 20, is a UF student
who uses a space heater in her bed-
room.
"I turn it on before I go to sleep and
leave it on all night," Silva said. "When
I wake up in the morning, I even some-
times forget to turn it off before I leave
for class."
Marty said that leveling the thermo-
stat at 68 degrees can be a huge help to
save money.
"If you raise the temperature by only
one degree, it will increase your bill by 4
percent," Marty said.
She said improving ,i_._, i _ -.fhcien-
cy habits when the seasons change can
make a huge difference in a user's elec-
tric bill.
"If just using an extra blanket can
save me all this money, consider the task
done," Silva said.


Students learn to manage 'young money'


* YOUNG MONEY LIVE IS TOURING THE COUNTRY.

By GENNARO SCIBELLI
Alligator Contributing Writer

On Tuesday morning, Young Money Live stopped on the
Plaza of the Americas as part of its fall tour.
Lil' Wayne was not there.
"We get about 25 calls a week from people who confuse us
with Young Money Record Label," said Todd Romer, founder
of the financial awareness tour, as he unfolded a bright red
tent.
Before stopping in Gainesville, Romer said he gave presen-
tations at Rutgers University, the University of Delaware and
the University of Central Florida as part of the Young Money
Live campus tour to provide relevant financial education and
awareness to college students and adults across the country.


Romer said Young Money Live focuses on informing and ad-
vising students on saving, spending habits and investing.
The informational session was hosted by the UF chapter
of the Students in Free Enterprise and sponsored by Campus
USA Credit Union.
Students :,11 I I-, through the plaza had the opportunity to
ask questions and get advice from Romer and representatives
from Campus USA.
In addition to Romer's insight, Pam Johnson of Campus
USA Credit Union fielded questions pertaining
Local to credit history and student banking options.
News Trivia questions about topics such as compound
interest challenged students to think about mak-
ing smart financial choices.
Engineering major Jared Anderson was one of many stu-
dents that stopped for advice and giveaways between classes.
"I'm surprised that UF doesn't make some of this informa-
tion more available to students here," Anderson said.

UF RESEARCH

By SARA SOLANO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Wearing her black JanSport backpack
crammed with organic chemistry textbooks,
sophomore Carly Dworkin makes her
weekly trip to Shands at UF to volunteer in
the hospital's emergency department.
Dworkin, a biology major, said she al-
ways wanted to work in the medical field,
and she knew that she was meant to be an
obstetrician since high school.
"There is nothing more rewarding I
could do with my life than deliver babies,"
she said. "There's something telling me that
I belong here and that I'm going to work
my way up and become a doctor. There is
no 'What if I don't make it?' There's just
do."
A recent study at UF, which was pub-
lished in the September issue of "The Ca-
reer Development Quarterly" journal,
found that almost half of incoming college
freshmen surveyed at a large East Coast
university felt that they have a "calling" to
a certain career.

major Mike Jenkins spent his first three
years at UF as a chemical engineering ma-
jor and switched to the College of Journal-
ism and Communications in the fall of 2009.
Despite coming into college with a passion
for chemistry, he realized he wouldn't be
happy with a career as an engineer, he
said.
"I took a film analysis class as an elec-

that really opened my eyes to the world of

Sophomore exploratory major Daniel

Editorial

Torture,



schmorture

Waterboarding inhumane
In one of America's shining moments, our former Com-
mander in Chief George W. Bush told The Times of Lon-
don on Tuesday he still supported waterboarding several
suspected terrorists.
1.:r.. .:,,iii._. for those asleep during the entire Bush
Administration, is a highly controversial interrogation meth-
od that has been called torturous by many. The interrogation
method involves pouring water over a person's mouth and
nose to manically simulate drowning in a psychologically
harmful way to induce secrets to come out.
And really, who cares about treating these suspected ter-
rorists humanely? After that whole Abu Ghralb fiasco where
American soldiers were documented to humiliate prisoners
of war by taking naked prisoners of war on a leash and snap-
ping super-cute Facebook defaults in complete defiance of
the Geneva Convention, who cares about .11. I. . , the rules
anymore?
Not America thankfully!
And when the leader of the free world endorses breaking
the rules of war and supports torture, can we expect anything
less from those who might not hold such superior American
ethics?
But what really surprises us about the morally devout
man who governed the state that consistently sees the high-
est rate of capital punishment in this morally just nation, is
that by supporting waterboarding, Bush must have just for-
gotten that whole "Violence begets violence" motto.
Good for us, America. At least our enemies now know we
don't play by the rules, and we really don't care.


Partisan Pardon


If you thought Charlie was
going to turn into some
lame-duck, has-been gov-
ernor, think again.
The recently defeated
governor of our very own
Florida has decided to take
it upon himself to let "The
Doors" swing wide open
and free in his final months
in office.
Gov. Charlie Crist has
publicly declared he's con-
sidering pardoning the
deceased fellow Florldian
rocker Jim Morrison for in-
decent exposure and profan-
ity charges stemming from
41-year-old charges at a Mi-
ami concert.
We'd like to see Gov.-elect
Rick Scott pull something
like this.
Saying the evidence
against his fellow Florida
State University alum was
never very conclusive, he's
considering posthumously
pardoning The Doors' lead


singer.
And Gov. Crist, we know
we've given you a hard time
in the past with your flip-
flopping on abortion, gay
adoption, oil spills, your
political affiliation and just
about everything else that's
passed through your desk
during these past few years,
but here's to actually doing
something useful with your
last few months in office.
Who cares about SB6
potentially being pushed
back through the soon-to-be
veto-proof legislature? Who
cares about Florida women
who might potentially have
to view ultrasounds of their
fetuses after the new veto-
proof legislature considers
that whole bill again?
You did what you could,
Charlie. We're glad you're
now deciding to pardon a
dead guy.
Let's see Scott try to over-
turn this one.

'Mockingbird' shi
I'm not that guy who usually gets incredibly upset
about political correctness.
I usually believe there's a legitimate reason to use
"he/she" or "firefighter" or "hearing-impaired." "Free-
dom fries" was a bit too much for my taste, but every-
one except uber-patriots who couldn't utter a word of
French felt like that.
But a story out of Flagler Palm Coast High just takes
the cake. The school has decided to cancel the produc-
tion of "To Kill a Mockingbird" due to the use of the
"N-word." This, to me, is where political correctness
has gone too far.
One of the treasured rights of being an American is
the ability to have the right to free expression and free
speech.
Banned books are not something I'm a big fan of, and
the decision by Flagler Palm Coast High is just spitting
in the face of Lady Liberty.
This affects me most as a student who used to be
heavily involved in theater. I would take my friends or
teachers on when they challenged something they saw
on our stage.
Artistic expression should reign supreme within
reason. I understand "Rent," "Cabaret" or "Chicago"
might not have a place on the stage of a public high
school (though I'd argue until I'm blue in the face that
they should), but there's no reason to ban a work as
historically significant as an adaptation of Harper Lee's
magnum opus.
It also affects me because "To Kill a Mockingbird" is
one of the most significant books I've ever read. Atticus
Finch inspired me to pursue law, and Lee helped me
believe justice persists even if it wasn't delivered in the


ow should go on
I courtroom.
It absolutely pains me that
this work that inspired me and so
many others is being silenced for
the use of one racial slur.
Think about this for a second.
Sean Quinn What literature would the nation
letters@alligatororg lose if they were censored for
the use of a racial slur? "Fences,"
"Schindler's List" and "Angels in America" would
cease to exist.
I understand the mindset of the school at a very ba-
sic level. Exposing young minds to intolerance wouldn't
be the smartest idea. But that mindset is completely
wrong.
Intolerance doesn't need to be silenced - it needs to
be displayed, exposed and shown to be wrong.
"To Kill a Mockingbird" is not inspiring anyone to
be a racist. If anything, it's inspiring people to be anti-
racist.
Lee's intention was to be authentic and to portray
conditions that would have been present in Maycomb,
Ala. I sincerely doubt she was trying to rile up parents
of high schools students.
"To Kill a Mockingbird" is a classic example of
American literature, one that has inspired generations
of students and teachers. It does not deserved to be si-
lenced for the use of one word. Given, it is a word re-
garded with infamy, but it is a word also linked to the
intolerance of the past, and the show deserves to go on
at Flagler Palm Coast High.

Letters to the Editor
UF telecommunications department is
failing its students
Why is UF hiring professional broad-
casters to do anything other than teach
students about radio? I really don't get it.
I had to go to WSKY-FM in order to get a
real radio experience because UF is failing
its students. Those radio stations should
be used to train future broadcasters.
I thank WSKY's T.J. Hart, Bob Rose and
Andrew Lee every day for giving me the
real-world education UF would not.
I loved my time at UF, and I learned a
lot there, but I think UF can do a lot better.
Getting rid of Lex and Terry was a good
start, but if it's going to bring in more pro-
fessionals, what's the point of getting rid
of them?
UF needs to use its broadcast properties
to teach students.
If it's about money, I get that; it's the
nature of the beast. But it needs to remem-
ber this is a learning institution first and
foremost.
Dale Jackson
UF alumnus



NCAA should set an example
Of course, as a UF alumnus, I hate Au-
burn, and, of course, I hate Cameron New-
ton (in a strictly football sense of course).
Newton has been criticized for a lot of
things that are potentially disastrous to his
career.
Most obvious is this whole issue of the
alleged illegal signing activity, which was
worth about $200,000.
The issues that have me burning inside,
and consequentially want me to see New-
ton's career burn as well, are his actions
while he was at UF.
Newton was found to have stolen a lap-
top just before he left for junior college.
Last time I checked, any theft more than


$300 is a felony.
Now more recently are allegations he
cheated as a student.
Isn't it a little strange a felon and a
cheater is a contender for the Heisman and
is on full scholarship?
It's a slap in the face to every student
who doesn't commit felony theft and
doesn't cheat in college that such behav-
ior is tolerated simply because he's good
at sports.
The message the NCAA is clearly show-
ing is if you're an awesome football player,
you're above the law other students have
to abide by.
Had I done any of this, not only would
UF have expelled me, but my entire career
and reputation would have been jeopar-
dized.
Not only should Newton not be play-
ing football, he should not be allowed in
college. Newton should be working at
McDonald's for the rest of his life so he,
along with all the other student athletes,
can learn they aren't above the rules.
The NCAA has violated everything
honest, hard-working students and people
strive for.
It shows no regard for the rest of the
public who are, in some respects, killing
themselves to become doctors, lawyers
and businessmen and women. If it has any
respect for anybody, the NCAA would
suspend Newton and force him out of a
scholarship.
I'm sick and tired of athletes thinking
they are kings.
But perhaps the greatest problem is
how we make them kings.
There is no better time to make an ex-
ample of what we expect our athletic role
models to be than right now.

Block tuition benefits few students
I congratulate Chad Kimes in his Tues-
day letter for taking 15 or more credits and
graduating in record pace, but my previ-
ous letter was meant to bring light to those
who will suffer with this proposal.
While Kimes might be a superstar,
whether Kimes or I represent a majority of
engineering students cannot be proved.
But what is evident is block tuition in-
evitably only aids one type of student: the
student taking 16 to 18 credits.
And this is not a fair system of tuition
because if I don't have time to take six
classes with labs, hold a job and do re-
search with time for leisure, why should I
pay for classes I am not taking?

Passage of the DREAM Act would
change the lives of many
Next week is a pivotal point in the lives
of so many young people.
It's astonishing to think the passage of
a single bill can have such a dramatic in-
fluence for a crucial segment of our popu-
lation.
If passed, this bill will say a great deal
about our concern for today's youth and
our direction for our future.
I am, of course, referring to the Devel-
opment, Relief and Education for Alien
Minors (DREAM) Act.
The DREAM Act would, by no means,
be a "free pass" for undocumented youth.
They will have to meet stringent require-
ments and are only eligible if they entered
the U.S. before the age of 16, have been
continuously present in the country for no
less than five years prior to the bill's enact-
ment, must obtain a high school diploma
and have no criminal record to be covered
under the bill's proposal.


Only then can these undocumented
youth apply for a six-year "conditional"
legal residency. True legal status could lat-
er be achieved by either graduating from
a two-year college or serving at least two
years in the U.S. armed forces.
The Senate will vote on whether to pass
the DREAM Act during its lame-duck ses-
sion, which begins Monday.
So how can you make a difference?
Contact Sen. LeMieux at 1-866-630-7106
and simply ask him to support the DREAM
Act. Every call counts.

Shakespeare performance group
resents implication of story
The officers of UF Shakespeare in the Park
would like to stress their disbeliefs at Tues-
day's article on the "lack" of Shakespeare in
Gainesville.
We have performed Shakespeare out-
doors free of charge and for the benefit of
the community since 2006.
To claim that Shakespeare in the Swamp
is the only group "determined to keep the
curtain from falling on William Shake-
speare" is to disregard our yearly commit-
ment to keeping that curtain lifted.
Recent performances by the Florida
Players, the UF Theatre Department, and the
Acrosstown Repertory Theatre further show
that Shakespeare is a staple of the commu-
nity.
UF Shakespeare in the Park would like to
welcome Shakespeare in the Swamp to the
Gainesville theater community, and we are
excited to share our duty of keeping that tra-
dition alive.

UWire

NPR analyst's termination was understandable but wrong


This editorial was originally printed by the editorial board
at Harvard University's newspaper, the Harvard Crim-
son.
National Public Radio recently terminated the con-
tract of longtime news analyst Juan Williams for
his remarks on The O'Reilly Factor.
According to National Public Radio, the comments made
by Williams "undermined his credibility as a news ana-
lyst."
After asserting that he is a proponent of civil rights,
Williams said, " But when I get on the plane, I got to tell
you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think,
you know, they are identifying themselves first and fore-
most as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."
Despite his provocative statements, Williams should
not have been fired - he was well within his rights to ex-
press his personal opinion when he was speaking outside
his home news organization.
It is impractical to claim that news reporting is inde-
pendent of bias, and, in this case, it seems that Williams'
remarks were viewed as a problem particularly because
they seemed to stand contrary to National Public Radio's
own editorial views.
News organizations must realize that every employee
harbors personal beliefs.
In making these remarks, Williams seemed to be ad-
mitting a personal emotional reaction rather than a con-
scious intolerance toward Muslims, although we see how
viewers and listeners could easily have interpreted his
comments as being bigoted.
Instead, his statements further highlight the uncon-
trollable emotional response that many individuals feel


Harvard Crimson despite their intellectual stance on
UWire certain issues.
As Williams' comments suggest,
unfortunately, people's conscious
views do not always influence their unconscious atti-
tudes.
In this light, we do not believe that Williams' comments
were necessarily bigoted or intended as such; rather, the
remarks were an honest admission about his own rote re-
actions.
National Public Radio's immediate decision to fire Wil-
liams is an inappropriately strong reaction to the situation
and to the interpretation that his remarks were directly
targeted toward Muslims.
The media's hypersensitivity to issues of race and reli-
gion likely influenced National Public Radio's assessment
of the situation and its ultimate conclusion, however poor
the decision.
In this sense, firing Williams was a form of instantly
satisfying those who would exhibit a similarly sensitive
reaction.
This, in fact, could easily have been another factor in
National Public Radio's decision - that the organization
could have lost listeners who interpreted Williams' com-
ments to be prejudiced.
Ultimately, National Public Radio's potential loss of
patronage may have mattered more to the organization
than keeping Williams employed as a testament to its
journalistic integrity and discretion.
As a business, it is within National Public Radio's in-
terest to retain as many listeners as possible.
But that is not worth sacrificing its contributors' right
to free speech.


This is not to say, however, that there are no bigoted
remarks against Muslims being made on air or in the me-
dia today.
But labeling all statements as such is ineffective when
there are many more unambiguously offensive statements
to be countered.
A statement that warrants such attention as this one
did, for example, could likely be written off as one of the
many that are undeservedly brought to the national spot-
light, and remarks that are truly bigoted could thus go
unaddressed.
In addition, the media's association of Williams' re-
marks with those that Bill O'Reilly made on "The View"
only adds to the false belief that Williams' statements
were as intolerant as O'Reilly's.
In justifying an opinion poll he cited where 70 per-
cent of respondents opposed the construction of Park51,
a Muslim community center located two blocks from
Ground Zero, O'Reilly caused the show's co-hosts to walk
off the set by saying, "Muslims killed us on 9/11."
O'Reilly's comments were inexcusable, unlike Wil-
liams.' Therefore, a comparison between the two is unfair
and inaccurate.
In firing Williams, National Public Radio has silenced
someone who was, in fact, implicitly encouraging others
to fight their initial fears about Muslims and to refrain
from jumping to conclusions about people of any faith.
National Public Radio should have carefully consid-
ered the true intent of Williams' words before quickly as-
suming that any sensitive comment about Muslims must
necessarily result in the termination of one of their em-
ployees.

ON CAMPUS

UF professor, born deaf, triumphs over difficulties


By RASHIELLE TEAPE
Alligator Contributing Writer


Michael Tuccelli listened to the
sound of a chirping frog for over
an hour, fascinated.
Tuccelli, a professor at UF,
never heard a sound until six
years ago. Born deaf, he learned
sign language to communicate
until getting a cochlear hearing
implant.
The implant is an electronic de-
vice that gives a deaf person the
sense of hearing by stimulating
the hearing nerve in the brain.
Before getting the implant,
Tuccelli adapted by learning other
methods of communicating with
people.
"My mother would point to a
picture, and then to the word,"
Tuccelli said. "She also tried
teaching me lip-reading, but that
wasn't very effective."
With his own children, Tuccelli
took a different approach. He has
three hearing children who could
all sign to a certain extent before
they could actually speak, some-
thing Tuccelli sees as an advan-
tage.
Tuccelli said exposing his chil-
dren to sign language improved
communication with their parents
because associating signs with
concepts and words was easier
and faster than learning the sound.
Plus, early exposure to signing en-
hanced their imagination.
Now, Tuccelli teaches three
levels of American Sign Language


at UF. Learning ASL is proven to
increase job security and IQ lev-
els, Tuccelli said.
"It's great to know how to com-
municate with another culture,"
said Angela Petrizzo, a UF stu-
dent enrolled in Tuccelli's class.
"Dr. Tuccelli teaches us about a
whole new culture."
Tuccelli takes an interactive
approach to teaching his ASL stu-


dents, taking what they already
know and relating that to a visual
language.
"They are amazed at how they
can express themselves," Tuccelli
said.
Ninety-three percent of com-
munication is nonverbal, making
it important to be aware of body
language, he said. American Sign
Language takes this concept and


enforces it, making everything
from hand gestures to facial ex-
pressions important in conversa-
tions.
"I love being able to commu-
nicate in a whole different way,"
said Alison Schultheis, another
student in Tuccelli's class.
With the people who he inter-
acts with, he receives different re-
actions to being deaf.


N"--- - I
Steven H. Keys/Alligator Staff
Michael Tuccelli, a hearing-impaired UF professor who teaches American Sign Language, signs with his
assistant in front of his class during a lecture in Little Hall on Tuesday afternoon.


First impressions are usually
apologetic. After that, people will
either walk away or try to commu-
nicate with him by talking slowly
and fish-like, Tuccelli said.
Tuccelli sometimes conducts
an experiment with his ASL stu-
dents to help them understand
what it is like being deaf in a hear-
ing world.
In the experiment, he sends
students to Oaks Mall in pairs,
one pair signing to each other,
and the other speaking verbally.
After visiting different stores, the
students see that the signing pair
is approached less, showing the
lack of interaction with "deaf"
people.
For Tuccelli, shifting from this
separation because he was deaf to
being a part of the hearing world
came with challenges.
Tuccelli compared his learn-
ing to hear to someone learning to
see for the first time. Just as they
would have to understand hues,
textures and perception, he had
to interpret different pitches, vol-
umes and tones.
All these challenges have not
held Tuccelli back from doing
what he loves. He enjoys sharing
his culture with his students and
participating in different activi-
ties, just like anyone else.
Every year, Tuccelli organizes
a motorcycle trip to Alaska to
raise money for deaf children and
their families.
"My father told me, 'If you
can't do it, do it,'" Tuccelli said.


Strip club's food fails to wow


Editor's Note: Due to Thursday's holiday, this res-
taurant review is appearing "Off the Avenue."

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer

Somewhere between the straight-from-Winn-
Dixie hamburger bun .:..II i'1:'i" to pieces and side
items like Ruffles potato chips (which, sadly, taste
just like Ruffles potato chips) and one packet of "fan-
cy ketchup," one thing becomes clear: This restaurant
lacks artistic risk.
Cafe Risque is a Micanopy-based dining estab-
lishment owned by Asher Sullivan III of the Florid-
ian food-famous Sullivans. The restaurant is charac-
terized by romantic, dim lighting accented by neon
lights.
The menu, however, is deficient of the luxurious,
gasp-inducing cuisine typically found in restaurants
with French-sounding names.
Instead, patrons are treated with a bland mix of
Americana. Hamburgers. Bacon hamburgers. Eggs.
Omelets. BLTs. Chicken sandwiches. Chicken wings.
And let's not start with the equally yawn-inspiring
drink menu, which is nonexistent. Cafe Risque does
not offer any alcoholic beverages, meaning thirsts for
a pre-dinner Trimbach Riesling or an Austrian Pep-
per Gruner Veltliner will go unquenched.
Any hope for the stimulating conversation that
only accompanies fine drink is dead the moment you
walk in the door - a perplexing element consider-
ing the restaurant prides itself as a great place for up-
wardly mobile men to meet nice young ladies.
Sadly, the lack of palette diversity overshadows
the most positive aspect of the Cafe: its service. The
restaurant is, without exception, staffed with friendly
people.
Patrons are told to sit wherever they'd like and
are not pressured into ordering food until they've
examined the menu. Of course, the cafe's menu is so


humdrum that customers will likely be disappointed
before even meeting the friendly servers.
Once you order, however, the staff will check in
every five minutes to ensure you have exactly what
you need. After eating for about 15 minutes, I became
overwhelmed with the attention I received.
One waitress, a youthful girl named Skyler, even
asked if I would like to dance with her "in private."
Being your dedicated food critic, I declined to focus
on the "fancy ketchup."
Skyler's request was unique from all other estab-
lishments I've critiqued and seemed a little too for-
ward. But perhaps that is a result of my New York
elitism not blending with the down-home warmth of
southern ladies.
Speaking of which, the gender of the cafe's person-
nel seemed oddly disproportionate, as every worker
was female. This could have happened
Off the simply by chance. Maybe the schedules
Avenue of every female worker coincided with
that particular Monday afternoon.
Regardless, the efficiency with which this all-
women staff ran the cafe should be celebrated as a
sign of female power and an affront to all chauvinis-
tic men. Oh, how Sojourner Truth and Susan B. An-
thony would smile!
The only complaint about the staff would be their
overall flippant attitude toward attire. Several wait-
resses dressed unprofessionally, and some overtly
flaunted their sexuality in an attempt to garner tips.
With that type of attitude, the waitresses cost the cafe
a spot on my annual list of great places to impress a
date in northern Florida (out this December).
Despite their friendliness, patrons will under-
standably worry about receiving food from the wait-
resses. If they don't care about their dress, assuming
they don't care about hygiene is not a stretch.
Alas, these worries are quelled the moment you
walk in the bathroom, where a sign reads: "All Em-
ployees Must Wash Hands."

Carnival aims to


'Chomp Cancer'

By ALINA TORRES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Friends for Life of America will be hosting its Chomp
Cancer Carnival today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the J. Wayne
Reitz Union North Lawn.
The annual event is free and will include games, activi-
ties, free food and a bounce house to raise awareness of pe-
diatric cancers.
Some members of the organization are pediatric cancer
survivors and will be at the carnival sharing their experi-
ences.

"We hope to spark innovation and get people
our age to go and volunteer at the pediatric
cancer unit."
Dennyfe Agana
president of friends for life

Leslie Slota, treasurer of Friends for Life of America, said
they are not raising money at this event.
Friends for Life President Dennyfe Agana said her main
goal for the event is to raise awareness of the issue.
Agana said pediatric cancers affect a wide range of peo-
ple from infants to those closer in age to college students.
"We hope to spark innovation and get people our age
to go and volunteer at the pediatric cancer unit," she said.
"A lot of young adults affected with pediatric cancer do not
have people to relate with and having a support system like
college students help[s] them get through the rough time."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG gives $170,000 to renovate campus game room


By JOEY FLECHAS
and CHELSEA HULL
Alligator Writers

The Student Senate unanimous-
ly passed a bill to allocate $170,000
for maintenance in the Reitz Union
Game Room at the meeting Tues-
day night.
The last renovations nine years
ago drew more students to the
game room and increased revenue,
according to the bill. The money
will be used to replace the Point-of-
Sale system, which tracks activity
sales and controls the scoring sys-
tem for bowling lanes.
Now that the money has been
allocated, Budget and Appropria-
tions Chair T.J. Villamil said he and
his committee will hear bids from
two renovation companies for the
lowest costs.
"Think of the big picture," he
said. "The Reitz game room is fall-
ing apart, and we need to fix it. It's
a great thing for students to use,
and it has been crumbling."
During public debate, block
tuition dominated the discussion.
Seven students, some of whom
were senators, spoke out against
the idea. UF's administration is
working on a proposal to bring to
the Board of Trustees at its Dec. 9
to 10 meeting.
Senate President Ben Meyers,


of the Unite Party, said SG will
not pass a resolution until an offi-
cmal proposal comes out of Provost
Joe Glover's office. He did say the
Senate's opinion, across all three
parties, mirrors the opposition ex-
pressed by many students.
Student Alliance party Sen. Mi-
chael Morales, who represents the
Lakeside Residential area, spoke in
opposition of block tuition. He said
it alienates the employed students
and makes it harder for them to
participate in extracurricular ac-
tivities.
"There is no such thing as a
one-size-fits-all degree, so why are
they proposing a one-size-fits-all
tuition?" he asked.
Progress Party Sen. Jose Soto
said the administration was behav-
ing as a monopoly based in bad
economics.
"They know they have a captive
audience," he said. "They have us
by '., .1II..
Dave Schneider, a member of
Students for a Democratic Society
and former Progress Party senator,
also opposed block tuition, call-
ing it the biggest assault on public
education that he has seen in three
years. The group plans to hold a
rally Nov. 17 on Turlington Plaza
at 12:30 p.m. to collect signatures
on petitions opposing the measure
to deliver to the administration.

DNA tests of cholera samples

The researchers have traveled
to Gressier/Leogane several times
over the past year to assist in con-
structing an infectious field labora-
tory to study intestinal cholera.

the Gressier/Leogane area, but UF
health researchers worry that if the

a former agent
with the UF Insti-
tute of Food and
Agricultural Sci-
Redden ences, will also be
traveling to teach
residents to prepare a drinkable sa-
line solution, which will allow them
to treat the disease on their own.

of 0 RLY owls, the sky is made of Dramatic Chip-
munks and the moon is composed of multiple
Longcats.
She used the repetition in her work, she ex-
plained, to represent how prominent memes are
on the Internet.
Rodriguez is also fascinated with the mytholo-
gies that arise around memes.
She finds it fascinating that Internet users make
up their own stories for them, stories that become
part of the meme itself. She is quick to compare
things like Greek mythology to them as well.
"I'm a big sucker for Greek mythologies," she
said. "I'm fascinated by how these stories are a
meme itself."
Though one of her pieces features the story
behind Longcat and his nemesis, Tacgnol (that's
longcat backwards), another features the two in a
much different context.
In "The Temptation," they are portrayed as
Adam and Eve from the Bible - Tacgnol is tempt-
ing Longcat with the knowledge of the Internet.

Newton allegedly caught


cheating three times at UF


AP Photo
Auburn quarterback Cam Newton allegededly faced the possibility of expulsion when
he decided to transfer from UF.


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmcca ll@alligator org

Allegations about Auburn quarterback
Cam Newton's past off-field conduct are pil-
ing up at an equally impressive rate to his
Heisman Trophy-caliber stats.
The latest talk is of Newton's academic re-
cord while playing at Florida, when a source
told FOXSports.com that he cheated in class
on three separate occasions.
According to the source, Newton was
caught cheating as a freshman, and, as a
sophomore he put his name on another stu-
dent's paper and purchased one off the Inter-
net when told to write his own.
Rumors surfaced that UF - ...rl: :II coach
Urban Meyer was the source for the story,
but he denied that Tuesday in a statement.
"Our entire focus right now is on prepar-
ing for our biggest game of the year against
South Carolina," Meyer said. "For anyone to
think that I or anyone on our staff may have
leaked information about private student
records to the media doesn't know us very
well. It's a ridiculous claim and simply not
true."
The two incidents with the plagiarized
papers allegedly took place after Newton's
November 2008 run-in with police over
the purchase of a stolen laptop, and he was
due to appear before UF's Student Conduct
Committee in Spring 2009 but transferred
instead.
No one from Florida has neither con-


firmed or denied the report, but a UF spokes-
man said Newton would not necessarily have
faced expulsion in the scenario presented.
"There are no automatic con-
sequences at the University of
Florida. It depends on the totality
of the issues."
Janine Sikes
UF spokeswoman

Hearings in front of the Student Conduct
Committee are done to produce a recom-
mended course of action for the Dean of Stu-
dents, who has the final say.
"There are no automatic consequences at
the University of Florida," UF spokeswoman
Janine Sikes said. "It depends on the totality
of the issues. Each one is a case-by-case basis,
and they really mean that. There is no single
'If you do this, this is what happens.'"
A wide range of punishments is available,
from a written reprimand to suspension or
expulsion.
UF expels roughly one to two students
per year and suspends about 10, Sikes said,
but both numbers are skewed by students
choosing to leave the school rather than face
punishment.
Representatives of the Florida ....rl::ll
team had no comment on the situation.
"We can't comment on federally-protect-
ed student records," Gators team spokesman
Steve McClain said.


UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators set to
By MATT RUBIN
Alligator Writer

After finishing up a three-match road trip,
Florida will come back to Gainesville to
play its final two regular-season matches
before ending the year with another three-
match road trip.
Depending on whether or not the No.
1 Gators (22-1, 15-0 Southeastern Confer-
ence) host an NCAA Tournament match,
these could be the last home appearances
for UF this season.
The Gators will take on Mississippi State

that," senior middle blocker Lauren Bled-

Hurricanes looking for ways to cut down on penalties


Miami has racked up the most flags in the nation


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CORAL GABLES - There was a time
in Miami's : -. ..-r: II history when being the
nation's most-penalized team would have
been a source of pride.
No more.
These days, it's only a source of frustra-
tion.
The Hurricanes are No. 1 nationally in
penalties this season with 83 - already
more than their season-long average from
the last three years - and Miami coach
Randy Shannon simply cannot understand
how that's the case.
Even lobbying to the Atlantic Coast
Conference over particularly
bothersome calls on a weekly
basis, something all teams
in the league do anyway,
doesn't seem to be helping.
"It doesn't make me feel
good, and it doesn't make
the team feel good, and the fans and ev-
erybody else keep saying the team is un-
disciplined," Shannon said.
"But I can't go and say, 'OK, we got this
report back from the (league) office and
this is how many calls they've made a mis-
take on.' I cannot do that. That's not right.
Coaches, we decide to keep those reports
in-house and confidential."
So Shannon wouldn't share specifics on
what Miami sends to the ACC and what
the ACC sends back to Miami.


An educated guess: Sean Spence was
featured prominently in those reports this
week.


The Miami linebacker was lined up in
pass coverage against Maryland tight end
Matt Furstenburg in the fourth quarter of


r rinutu
The Hurricanes lead the nation with 83 penalties this season and average about nine
per game.


last week's game, facing the right side of
the Terrapins' line.
Miami's Ramon Buchanan blew past
the left side, knocking the ball away from
Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien,
and the Hurricanes' Marcus Robinson
scooped it up for what became a 55-yard
touchdown.
None of it counted.
Spence was called for grabbing Furst-
enburg's face mask, although replays
showed his hands were hitting the Mary-
land player in the chest, not Furstenburg's
helmet.
It's the only time a Miami defender has
been flagged on a face-mask call this sea-
son.
How was that possible?
"I don't know, but it's what the ref
called," Spence said. "I didn't get a chance
to watch it. It's behind me."
If there is a silver lining in all these yel-
low flags for Miami, it's that the penalties
probably haven't cost the Hurricanes a
game yet this season.
Dropped passes and blown routes
doomed the Hurricanes at Ohio State,
nothing went right in the 45-17 loss to
Florida State, and Miami could only blame
itself after falling behind by 24 points in
what became a five-point defeat at Virgin-
ia on Oct. 30.
Still in the ACC title hunt, Miami (6-3,
4-2) visits Georgia Tech (5-4, 3-3) on Sat-
urday.
"We'll just keep working on it," Shan-
non said. "Nothing else you can do, re-
ally."

Gators ranked No. 1 for fifth straight week


BLEDSOE, from page 14

"I'm excited. I'm sure it will be
a little sad, but I think it'll be good
to see my family," Bledsoe said.
"It'll be hard because it will be an
emotional thing, but I'll be trying
to stay focused on the game at the
same time, so who knows what's
going to happen?"
For Bledsoe, only an SEC and


national championship are left to
make this year a dream season.
"It's going exactly as planned.
It couldn't have gone any better,"
Bledsoe said. "This is the perfect
way to go out for a senior year,
so far."
The Gators are ranked No. 1

the top-ranked team in 1996.
Much of the team's success
can be attributed to the play of
the seniors. Bledsoe ranks fifth in
hitting percentage in the SEC and
sixth in blocks. Fleming ranks
ninth in digs, and Rivers is fourth
in service aces.

"Every year we hope that our
seniors have their best year their
final year - that they can leave
on such a high - and no senior
class really has done that as well
as this group has," coach Mary
Wise said.
"Lauren Bledsoe is finally
playing her first complete year as
a middle blocker.
"Erin Fleming is our starting
libero from a limited defensive
specialist role getting periodic
play throughout most of her ca-
reer.
"Callie Rivers, the heart and
soul of our team and the team
leader, is playing her very best
volleyball of her career."
Sunday will be a bittersweet
moment for the three seniors and
fans that have watched them in
the O'Dome the past four years.
"What we look forward to on
Sunday is recognizing their ef-
forts and contributions over the
past four years," Wise said.


AL Gold Glove honors announced


* THE NL AWARDS WILL BE
ANNOUNCED TODAY.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK - Ichiro Suzuki won
his 10th straight Gold Glove for a full
season of fielding excellence. Mark
Buehrle won again, perhaps clinching
his spot with an acrobatic play on open-
ing day.
Derek Jeter, well, his selection is
likely to set off another loud round of
dispute over whether the award is rel-
evant anymore.
Rawlings announced the American
League honors Tuesday. Managers and
coaches vote for players in their leagues
and can't pick players on their own
teams.
Also chosen were first baseman
Mark Teixeira and second baseman
Robinson Cano of the New York Yan-
kees; third baseman Evan Longoria and
outfielder Carl Crawford of the Tampa
Bay Rays; Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer
and Seattle outfielder Franklin Gutier-
rez.
The NL awards will be announced
Wednesday.
Suzuki tied the AL record for Gold
Gloves by an outfielder shared by Ken
Griffey Jr. and Al Kaline. The Seattle
right fielder has won every year he's
been in the big leagues.
The overall record for outfielders is
held by Willie Mays and Roberto Cle-


mente with 12 each. The awards started
in 1957, so there's no telling how many
Mays, Clemente or others might have
won before then. Angels outfielder Torn
Hunter's streak of nine in a row ended
this season.
Jeter won for the fifth time at short-
stop - at 36, the New York Yankees
captain is the oldest AL shortstop to
win the Gold Glove since Luis Aparicio
was the same age in 1970. Only Ozzie
Smith, Omar Vizquel, Aparicio and
Mark Belanger have won more total
Gold Gloves at shortstop than Jeter.
"It is a tremendous honor to receive
the Gold Glove award, especially since
this recognition comes from manag-
ers and coaches for
E whom I have a great
deal of respect. It is
particularly gratify-
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ing to be recognized
for defense, as it is
something I take a lot of pride in and
am constantly working to improve,"
Jeter said in a statement.
Jeter was charged with just six errors
and had a career-high .989 fielding per-
centage, both best among full-time AL
shortstops.
But modern fielding charts and rank-
ings consistently put Jeter in the bottom
half of their ratings. Two websites that
study glovework - www.fangraphs.
com with its Ultimate Zone Rating and
www.fieldingbible.com - listed Chica-
go's Alexei Ramirez as the top-fielding
AL shortstop with Jeter nowhere close


to even middle-of-the-pack status.
Ramirez made 20 errors and had a
.974 fielding percentage.
"I think a lot of errors he got were
plays that others wouldn't have gotten
to," Buehrle said on a conference call. "I
think he was deserving."
"I don't see Derek play every day,"
he said. "I think there are a lot of guys
who could've won it."
Jeter's range seemed to noticeably
decline - he's never been the best at
getting to balls up the middle. This sea-
son, it seemed more grounders into the
hole got through, too, with third base-
man Alex Rodriguez ranging less and
less to his left.
For years, some fans have viewed
the Gold Gloves as mostly a popularity
contest, even suggesting that a player's
performance at the plate helped draw
extra attention to his glove. Jeter's wins
have often served as a lightning rod for
that debate.
Serious questions about the Gold
Gloves have stirred for more than a
decade, growing ever since Rafael
Palmeiro won the award at first base in
1999. He played there only 28 games for
Texas that season, spending most of the
year as a designated hitter.
Buehrle was an easy choice for his
second Gold Glove - he became the
first pitcher with multiple no-hitters
and Gold Gloves on his resume. He had
a 1.000 fielding percentage in50 chances
this year and led major league pitchers
with a career-high 11 pickoffs.


Yankees captain Derek Jeter, 36, is the oldest AL shortstop
to win the Gold Glove since Luis Aparicio did in 1970.


ANTHONY, from page 14

Let's break this down further. Newton was alleg-
edly shopped around to schools for $180,000 or more by
a shady agent. Now people say he cheated in classes at
Florida.
Which of the two is the surprising accusation? This has
all happened before. Anybody remember Reggie Bush or
the FSU cheating scandal?
That, right there, is the saddest aspect of this entire
story. The fact that there is nothing in these allegations
that should shock anyone.
Another question: Who cares if he cheated?
I usually don't like to generalize, but I'm pretty sure
he isn't the only collegiate athlete to take some short cuts
in classes. Two-year-old stories of Newton cheating at UF
do not interest me.
Instead, let's focus on something else. Arrests and
troubled athletes go hand in hand with winning. Schools
can't keep players out of trouble and graduate players
while still taking home college football titles.
The Oregon Ducks spent the last couple of seasons get-
ting arrested - currently No. 1 in the BCS. Yes, a school
in Oregon is atop the rankings.
During coach Urban Meyer's magical run he has had at
least 30 player arrests.
USC has been great this decade. Oh wait, it's on proba-
tion now.
Don't get me started on Miami's unprecedented five
national championships in less than 20 years. Just go back
and watch ESPN's splendid documentary "The U" to see
how those players acted.
This trend goes on and on. There may be that one school
that does it the right way and succeeds on the field for a
year or two like Stanford, but that success is often short-
lived. If you want to dominate for a long time and make a
mark on the college football landscape, you cheat.
People are blind to this because, well, it's kind of an
ugly reality.
This is why I only come away with one thing from
these allegations about Newton: Auburn is going to be
damn good for years to come.
Congrats, Tigers fans.

"Everyone uses the Internet, but not a lot of people know about the Internet," she said. Traditionally, memes are meant to be humorous but they can often be very crude. For that reason, Rodriguez wanted to paint them in a different light. "I'm really trying to put memes into a serious academic, artistic context," she said. "I consider memes to be one of the biggest collaborative art projects in the history of mankind." Originally, she wanted to do something more traditional for this series.

After the plane hit the ground, Gordy, who is now 93, and his men were seized by the citizens of a small Berlin town and taken to the town square, where the citizens intended to hang their prisoners. Just as the noose was placed around his neck, he was saved by a German officer, who arrived to take the men away for interrogation.

Faculty to track Haiti cholera outbreak By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer UF health researchers are returning to Haiti this week to track the recent cholera outbreak and to help educate locals about how to treat and prevent the disease. Almost 600 Haitians have died as a result of the outbreak -the first in nearly 60 years. And the disease has now reached Port-au-Prince, the nation's capital. UF faculty members are traveling to the Gressier/ Leogane area, located about 12 miles west of Port-au-Prince, to take samples to determine the source of the cholera bacterium. They will also distribute 1,000 oral rehydration packets, which were assembled by College of Pharmacy faculty and students. The students helped measure and package individual U F doses of the chemical Research mix included in the packets. The packets include documents in Haitian Creole to educate people in the region about preventative measures against cholera. "When cholera strikes, it strikes very quickly, with large numbers of cases presenting all at once," said Glenn Morris, director of the Emerging Pathogens Institute in a press release. With millions of Haitians still displaced and living in poor conditions after January's earthquake, conditions were ripe for the spread of the bacterial infection.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 County awarded big grant H IT RECEIVED $4.5 MILLION IN TAX CREDITS FOR HEALTH AND JOBS. By LIDIA DINKOVA Alligator Contributing Writer Ten Alachua County biotechnology companies, nine of them UF-affiliates, received a considerable financial boost this week in an effort to advance health care reform and create more jobs. The Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project Program awarded $4.5 million worth of tax credit grants to the companies as part of the health care law passed in March. "I definitely think it's a great opportunity, specifically here in Gainesville where there are so many small companies and entrepreneurs, to allow them to turn their ideas into real products," said Amanda Burks, director of operations at Optima Neuroscience Inc., an Alachua company that develops software and devices for the treatment of neurological disorders. Optima Neuroscience Inc. was awarded $244,479, which will be used to pay for research done in 2009 on seizure detection software. According to a BioFlorida press release, an association that represents Florida bioscience industries, companies that showed the potential to produce cost-saving therapies and technologies were awarded the grants. Only firms with 250 employees or less were allowed to apply. "The majority of new jobs created are created by small and entrepreneurial companies," said Stephanie Warrington, vice president of corporate affairs and business development at Xhale Inc. "Investing in these companies is basically the government investing in future job creation." Two new employment opportunities were generated at Optima Neuroscience Inc. since the firm received the grant. "Investing in these companies is basically the government investing in future job creation." Stephanie Warrignton Vice president at xhale inc. Xhale Inc. received $422,771 from the grant, which will be used to rapidly bring improved breathalyzers to the market. The other companies that benefited from the grant are: Applied Genetic Technologies Corp., Banyan Biomarkers Inc., EnCor Biotechnology Inc., eTect LLC, Nanotherapeutics Inc., OxThera Inc., Quick-Med Technologies Inc. and Convergence Engineering Inc., the only non UF-affiliate. Student comedians to tackle pop culture By LIBERTY BOSTWICK Alligator Contributing Writer UF's improv comedy and sketch group, Theatre Strike Force, is performing a review of pop culture from the past 10 years Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Rion Ballroom. The show, Wreckade, is a satirical look at the events from this past decade that may stand out in people's minds, said Devin Donohue, vice president of the group. Donahue said every semester the student organization has a large show like this. Preparation started at the beginning of the fall term. The troupe allowed students outside of the organization to write and audition for the show. The team this year is much larger compared to past years, Donahue said. Group members also sought student ideas for the show, he said. "We spent a lot of time trying to get people sitting in the North Lawn to tell us what they remember most from the decade," he said. "We got a lot of really good ideas from it and used a lot of them in videos used in the show." Sports, environmental issues, entertainment and politics On quickly rose to the top 9 of the suggestions from the group's writers. LizAnderson, director of the show, said the show will run for about an hour and there will be seating for 200 people. She said her main goal is to give the audience a fun review of the last decade. "I really just want people to come and laugh. That's it," she said. GATOR BASKETBALL FRIDAY, NOV. 12 T "FLORIDA VS.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 Professor part of nation-wide research team By ROBIN PISAN Alligator Contributing Writer The room was packed, and Pam Soltis was especially nervous. When she presented her research findings to a group of 50 people, she was met with disbelief from her colleagues, who repeatedly questioned her results. The year was 1995, and it was a time when very little was known about Amborella trichopoda, a shrub native to the South Pacific island of New Caledonia. She proposed that it was a common ancestor to all angiosperms, or flowenng plants. This includes an estimated 300,000 species. With a position closer to the base of the evolutionary tree than any other known to exist, it could provide insight into the development of countless plant types. Fifteen years later, Pam Soltis, a UF professor and curator of molecular systematics and evolutionary genetics at the Florida Museum of Natural History, is part of a nationwide team dedicated to sequencing its genome. The $7.3 million project funded by the National Science Foundation, which will last four years, is a collaborative effort of five universities. In addition to UF's three primary researchers, there will also be opportunities for two undergraduate students to get involved, Soltis said. Each participating university will enlist the help of students, who will present their findings at an annual symposium. "This is a puzzle beyond any puzzle that you've ever seen," said Doug Soltis, project co-investigator and UF professor of biology. The project is like taking the most complex airplane, disassembling it down to the nuts and bolts and putting it back together, he said. It will provide the best hint as to what the earliest plants were like. Through this project, the shrub's relation to other plants will become more apparent, Pam Soltis said. It will give the world a broader perspective of angiosperms's evolutionary track, as well as provide better insight for agricultural purposes. Once it is known what genes are comSolts monly found in different crops, it will be easier to see which are worth manipulating, she said. If a gene that predisposes a plant to a disease is found throughout an entire evolutionary branch, she said, it would not be worth the effort needed to control it. A. trichopoda's position in the plant world has gone relatively unnoticed because it is rarely encountered by people, Doug Soltis said. Aside from captivity, it is only found growing in the high altitude regions of one island. "It's a bit weird," he said. "No one plays around with it too much." Finding the best combinations for the plant to grow has been tough, he said. It has different growth needs that can be difficult to pinpoint because little research has been done about its native soil composition. UF had five of them before three suddenly died, apparently of a root disease, he said. The survivors will be used in the project. The shrub's natural growing conditions aren't its only mystery. New Caledonia, the shrub's natural home, is estimated to be older than the plant, he said. It is likely that birds ate the tiny fruit it bears before traveling to the island. He hopes to have a first draft of A. trichopoda's genome complete by the beginning of next year. From there, the researchers will continue their work to make it as accurate as possible. The budget may allow for more work to be done than was initially proposed, he said. As technology becomes more advanced, they are able to do the sequencing cheaper and faster. He said they will be able to do more with the money than they could have years ago. Charles Darwin once referred to the appearance of flowering plants as an "abominable mystery." He was baffled by their sudden emergence and rapid diversification. To this, Doug Soltis said that this research is one more step toward solving it. He is skeptical this will ever be complete because one answer only leads to more questions. Space heaters may be mo Central heating is more energy efficient By TJ. MORRELL Alligator Contributing Writer Students running out to buy space heaters to survive the winter may want to reconsider the purchase. Many think using a space heater in your room is a cheap solution to getting warm and saving money But Amy Marty, the corporate communications director at Gainesville Regional Utilities, said space heaters actually use more energy and waste more electricity than some would imagine. The little electricity-sucking heaters are easy to find around Gainesville. Walmart, Lowe's and Home Depot are just a few of the stores that supply them. These locations offer space heaters with prices ranging anywhere from $29.99 up to $269. At first glance, the choice seems obvious considering a central heating system can easily cost a person a couple grand for the initial installation and monthly energy bills can skyrocket during the winter. "If you raise the temperature by only one degree, it will increase your bill by 4 percent." Amy Marty corporate communications director But Marty said space heaters are not a good choice to save electricity and that GRU, if needed, can help a person by assessing their energy usage. GRU will conduct a free home energy audit, Marty said. Representatives from the company will come to a customer's house and check his or her energy and water usage to determine how ney wasters to save money One 1,500-watt space heater running for a month in an average 12-by-12 room for only six hours a day would cost a person around $40. Marianne Silva, 20, is a UF student who uses a space heater in her bedroom. "I turn it on before I go to sleep and leave it on all night," Silva said. "When I wake up in the morning, I even sometimes forget to turn it off before I leave for class." Marty said that leveling the thermostat at 68 degrees can be a huge help to save money. "If you raise the temperature by only one degree, it will increase your bill by 4 percent," Marty said. She said improving energy-efficiency habits when the seasons change can make a huge difference in a user's electric bill. "If just using an extra blanket can save me all this money, consider the task done," Silva said. Students learn to manage 'young money' YOUNG MONEY LIVE IS TOURING THE COUNTRY. By GENNARO SCIBELLI Alligator Contributing Writer On Tuesday morning, Young Money Live stopped on the Plaza of the Americas as part of its fall tour. Lil' Wayne was not there. "We get about 25 calls a week from people who confuse us with Young Money Record Label," said Todd Romer, founder of the financial awareness tour, as he unfolded a bright red tent. Before stopping in Gainesville, Romer said he gave presentations at Rutgers University, the University of Delaware and the University of Central Florida as part of the Young Money Live campus tour to provide relevant financial education and awareness to college students and adults across the country. Romer said Young Money Live focuses on informing and advising students on saving, spending habits and investing. The informational session was hosted by the UF chapter of the Students in Free Enterprise and sponsored by Campus USA Credit Union. Students walking through the plaza had the opportunity to ask questions and get advice from Romer and representatives from Campus USA. In addition to Romer's insight, Pam Johnson of Campus USA Credit Union fielded questions pertaining to credit history and student banking options. News Trivia questions about topics such as compound interest challenged students to think about making smart financial choices. Engineering major Jared Anderson was one of many students that stopped for advice and giveaways between classes. "I'm surprised that UF doesn't make some of this information more available to students here," Anderson said. Holy Hollering Almas Shaya, a member of Michigan's Chaldean community, who are Iraqi Catholics, rally in Detroit on Monday.The rally was to express anger and frustration over what they describe as a lack of protection for Christians in Iraq.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Nearly half of By SARA SOLANO Alligator Contributing Writer Wearing her black JanSport backpack crammed with organic chemistry textbooks, sophomore Carly Dworkin makes her weekly trip to Shands at UF to volunteer in the hospital's emergency department. Dworkin, a biology major, said she always wanted to work in the medical field, and she knew that she was meant to be an obstetrician since high school. "There is nothing more rewarding I could do with my life than deliver babies," she said. "There's something telling me that I belong here and that I'm going to work my way up and become a doctor. There is no 'What if I don't make it?' There's just do." A recent study at UF, which was published in the September issue of "The Career Development Quarterly" journal, found that almost half of incoming college freshmen surveyed at a large East Coast university felt that they have a "calling" to a certain career. This is contrary to the popular conception about college students, who are generally thought to have no clue what they incoming fre want to do, said Ryan Duffy, a UF psychology professor who led the research. Duffy, along with William Sedlacek, an emeritus education professor at the University of Maryland, looked at 5,523 incoming freshmen ranging in ages, races and backgrounds. About 44 percent said having a career calling was "mostly true" or "totally true" of themselves, and 30 percent said they were searching for one. "They actually have a really good sense of what they want to do and feel like there's this one career path that's what they should be doing with their lives," Duffy said. "I think our study kind of debunks that myth that all these students are just wandering around aimlessly." Duffy said that the notion of a "calling" is something that is becoming more of a secular term, whereas in the past it was used in a more religious context. Mainstream culture has begun perpetuating this philosophy within the last four or five years with slogans such as employment website Monster.com's "Find your calling" and a recent "0, The Oprah Magazine" cover asking readers if they are living their calling. "I think that the idea of a calling is something that recently has become a little more nomenclature, and people use the term /PC or Mac Fre dii shmen feel career 'calling' a little more," Duffy said. "Probably on a weekly basis, I'll hear someone in an interview or something say, 'I've found my calling."' From a scholarly standpoint, there has been little to no research on this until recently, so there's almost no basis for comparison to years past, he said. However, there is very little difference in terms of test scores, GPA or overall happiness between students who have and have not found a career path they feel destined for. Although students may have an idea of what they want to do, current conditions dictate that being open to multiple options may be the wisest choice, Duffy said. Research in the future will focus on whether it's positive for 18 year olds to have a set career path. "While the percentage of people who have a calling is pretty stable, about a third of the adult population, the percentage of people who are actually doing their calling is probably substantially less now because the economy is so bad and the ability to choose jobs is so low," he said. While a large percentage of students feel certain of what they want to do, many may change goals or take longer to narrow down their options. Senior telecommunication production major Mike Jenkins spent his first three years at UF as a chemical engineering major and switched to the College of Journalism and Communications in the fall of 2009. Despite coming into college with a passion for chemistry, he realized he wouldn't be happy with a career as an engineer, he said. "I took a film analysis class as an elective while I was still an engineering major that really opened my eyes to the world of film and the stuff behind it," he said. "Ever since then, I've become enamored with it and knew that's what I actually wanted to do." Sophomore exploratory major Daniel Karpel said that he believes that students should take whatever they want and not be hindered by the implied need to choose a major as soon as possible. He has enjoyed being able to take classes he wouldn't have been able to otherwise, such as Chinese. "For me, college wasn't about what do I want to do, it's what do I want to learn," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 Torture, schmorture Waterboarding inhumane In one of America's shining moments, our former Commander in Chief George W. Bush told The Times of London on Tuesday he still supported waterboarding several suspected terrorists. Waterboarding, for those asleep during the entire Bush Administration, is a highly controversial interrogation method that has been called torturous by many. The interrogation method involves pouring water over a person's mouth and nose to manically simulate drowning in a psychologically harmful way to induce secrets to come out. And really, who cares about treating these suspected terrorists humanely? After that whole Abu Ghraib fiasco where American soldiers were documented to humiliate pnsoners of war by taking naked prisoners of war on a leash and snapping super-cute Facebook defaults in complete defiance of the Geneva Convention, who cares about following the rules anymore? Not America thankfully! And when the leader of the free world endorses breaking the rules of war and supports torture, can we expect anything less from those who might not hold such superior American ethics? But what really surprises us about the morally devout man who governed the state that consistently sees the highest rate of capital punishment in this morally just nation, is that by supporting waterboarding, Bush must have just forgotten that whole "Violence begets violence" motto. Good for us, America. At least our enemies now know we don't play by the rules, and we really don't care. Partisan Pardon If you thought Charlie was going to turn into some lame-duck, has-been governor, think again. The recently defeated governor of our very own Florida has decided to take it upon himself to let "The Doors" swing wide open and free in his final months in office. Gov. Charlie Crist has publicly declared he's considering pardoning the deceased fellow Floridian rocker Jim Morrison for indecent exposure and profanity charges stemming from 41-year-old charges at a Miami concert. We'd like to see Gov-elect Rick Scott pull something like this. Saying the evidence against his fellow Florida State University alum was never very conclusive, he's considering posthumously pardoning The Doors' lead singer. And Gov. Crist, we know we've given you a hard time in the past with your flipflopping on abortion, gay adoption, oil spills, your political affiliation and just about everything else that's passed through your desk during these past few years, but here's to actually doing something useful with your last few months in office. Who cares about SB6 potentially being pushed back through the soon-to-be veto-proof legislature? Who cares about Florida women who might potentially have to view ultrasounds of their fetuses after the new vetoproof legislature considers that whole bill again? You did what you could, Charlie. We're glad you're now deciding to pardon a dead guy.

While Kimes might be a superstar, whether Kimes or I represent a majority of engineering students cannot be proved. But what is evident is block tuition inevitably only aids one type of student: the student taking 16 to 18 credits.

Chris Moody UFstudent Passage of the DREAM Act would change the lives of many Next week is a pivotal point in the lives of so many young people. It's astonishing to think the passage of a single bill can have such a dramatic influence for a crucial segment of our population. If passed, this bill will say a great deal about our concern for today's youth and our direction for our future. I am, of course, referring to the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. The DREAM Act would, by no means, be a "free pass" for undocumented youth. They will have to meet stringent requirements and are only eligible if they entered the U.S. before the age of 16, have been continuously present in the country for no less than five years prior to the bill's enactment, must obtain a high school diploma and have no criminal record to be covered under the bill's proposal. Only then can these undocumented youth apply for a six-year "conditional" legal residency. True legal status could later be achieved by either graduating from a two-year college or serving at least two years in the U.S. armed forces. The Senate will vote on whether to pass the DREAM Act during its lame-duck session, which begins Monday. So how can you make a difference? Contact Sen. LeMieux at 1-866-630-7106 and simply ask him to support the DREAM Act. Every call counts. Fran Ricardo Alligator reader U U U Shakespeare performance group resents implication of story The officers of UF Shakespeare in the Park would like to stress their disbeliefs at Tuesday's article on the "lack" of Shakespeare in Gainesville. We have performed Shakespeare outdoors free of charge and for the benefit of the community since 2006. To claim that Shakespeare in the Swamp is the only group "determined to keep the curtain from falling on William Shakespeare" is to disregard our yearly commitment to keeping that curtain lifted. Recent performances by the Florida Players, the UF Theatre Department, and the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre further show that Shakespeare is a staple of the community. UF Shakespeare in the Park would like to welcome Shakespeare in the Swamp to the Gainesville theater community, and we are excited to share our duty of keeping that tradition alive. UF Shakespeare in the Park Representatives Alligator readers NPR analyst's termination was understandable but wrong This editorial was originally printed by the editorial board at Harvard University's newspaper, the Harvard Crimson. ational Public Radio recently terminated the contract of longtime news analyst Juan Williams for his remarks on The O'Reilly Factor. According to National Public Radio, the comments made by Williams "undermined his credibility as a news analyst." After asserting that he is a proponent of civil rights, Williams said, But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous." Despite his provocative statements, Williams should not have been fired -he was well within his rights to express his personal opinion when he was speaking outside his home news organization. It is impractical to claim that news reporting is independent of bias, and, in this case, it seems that Williams' remarks were viewed as a problem particularly because they seemed to stand contrary to National Public Radio's own editorial views. News organizations must realize that every employee harbors personal beliefs. In making these remarks, Williams seemed to be admitting a personal emotional reaction rather than a conscious intolerance toward Muslims, although we see how viewers and listeners could easily have interpreted his comments as being bigoted. Instead, his statements further highlight the uncontrollable emotional response that many individuals feel Harvard Crimson despite their intellectual stance on UWire certain issues. As Williams' comments suggest, unfortunately, people's conscious views do not always influence their unconscious attitudes. In this light, we do not believe that Williams' comments were necessarily bigoted or intended as such; rather, the remarks were an honest admission about his own rote reactions. National Public Radio's immediate decision to fire Williams is an inappropriately strong reaction to the situation and to the interpretation that his remarks were directly targeted toward Muslims. The media's hypersensitivity to issues of race and religion likely influenced National Public Radio's assessment of the situation and its ultimate conclusion, however poor the decision. In this sense, firing Williams was a form of instantly satisfying those who would exhibit a similarly sensitive reaction. This, in fact, could easily have been another factor in National Public Radio's decision -that the organization could have lost listeners who interpreted Williams' comments to be prejudiced. Ultimately, National Public Radio's potential loss of patronage may have mattered more to the organization than keeping Williams employed as a testament to its journalistic integrity and discretion. As a business, it is within National Public Radio's interest to retain as many listeners as possible. But that is not worth sacrificing its contributors' right to free speech. This is not to say, however, that there are no bigoted remarks against Muslims being made on air or in the media today. But labeling all statements as such is ineffective when there are many more unambiguously offensive statements to be countered. A statement that warrants such attention as this one did, for example, could likely be written off as one of the many that are undeservedly brought to the national spotlight, and remarks that are truly bigoted could thus go unaddressed. In addition, the media's association of Williams' remarks with those that Bill O'Reilly made on "The View" only adds to the false belief that Williams' statements were as intolerant as O'Reilly's. In justifying an opinion poll he cited where 70 percent of respondents opposed the construction of Park51, a Muslim community center located two blocks from Ground Zero, O'Reilly caused the show's co-hosts to walk off the set by saying, "Muslims killed us on 9/11." O'Reilly's comments were inexcusable, unlike Williams.' Therefore, a comparison between the two is unfair and inaccurate. In firing Williams, National Public Radio has silenced someone who was, in fact, implicitly encouraging others to fight their initial fears about Muslims and to refrain from jumping to conclusions about people of any faith. National Public Radio should have carefully considered the true intent of Williams' words before quickly assuming that any sensitive comment about Muslims must necessarily result in the termination of one of their employees.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 ON CAMPUS UF professor, born deaf, triumphs over difficulties By RASHIELLE TEAPE Alligator Contributing Writer Michael Tuccelli listened to the sound of a chirping frog for over an hour, fascinated. Tuccelli, a professor at UF, never heard a sound until six years ago. Born deaf, he learned sign language to communicate until getting a cochlear hearing implant. The implant is an electronic device that gives a deaf person the sense of hearing by stimulating the hearing nerve in the brain. Before getting the implant, Tuccelli adapted by learning other methods of communicating with people. "My mother would point to a picture, and then to the word," Tuccelli said. "She also tried teaching me lip-reading, but that wasn't very effective." With his own children, Tuccelli took a different approach. He has three hearing children who could all sign to a certain extent before they could actually speak, something Tuccelli sees as an advantage. Tuccelli said exposing his children to sign language improved communication with their parents because associating signs with concepts and words was easier and faster than learning the sound. Plus, early exposure to signing enhanced their imagination. Now, Tuccelli teaches three levels of American Sign Language at UF Learning ASL is proven to increase job security and IQ levels, Tuccelli said. "It's great to know how to communicate with another culture," said Angela Petrizzo, a UF student enrolled in Tuccelli's class. "Dr. Tuccelli teaches us about a whole new culture." Tuccelli takes an interactive approach to teaching his ASL students, taking what they already know and relating that to a visual language. "They are amazed at how they can express themselves," Tuccelli said. Ninety-three percent of communication is nonverbal, making it important to be aware of body enforces it, making everything from hand gestures to facial expressions important in conversations. "I love being able to communicate in a whole different way," said Alison Schultheis, another student in Tuccelli's class. With the people who he interlanguage, he said. American Sign acts with, he receives different reLanguage takes this concept and actions to being deaf. Steven H. Keys / Alligator Staff Michael Tuccelli, a hearing-impaired UF professor who teaches American Sign Language, signs with his assistant in front of his class during a lecture in Little Hall on Tuesday afternoon. First impressions are usually apologetic. After that, people will either walk away or try to communicate with him by talking slowly and fish-like, Tuccelli said. Tuccelli sometimes conducts an experiment with his ASL students to help them understand what it is like being deaf in a hearing world. In the experiment, he sends students to Oaks Mall in pairs, one pair signing to each other, and the other speaking verbally. After visiting different stores, the students see that the signing pair is approached less, showing the lack of interaction with "deaf" people. For Tuccelli, shifting from this separation because he was deaf to being a part of the hearing world came with challenges. Tuccelli compared his learning to hear to someone learning to see for the first time. Just as they would have to understand hues, textures and perception, he had to interpret different pitches, volumes and tones. All these challenges have not held Tuccelli back from doing what he loves. He enjoys sharing his culture with his students and participating in different activities, just like anyone else. Every year, Tuccelli organizes a motorcycle trip to Alaska to raise money for deaf children and their families. "My father told me, 'If you can't do it, do it,"' Tuccelli said. Strip club's food fails to wow Editor's Note: Due to Thursday's holiday, this restaurant review is appearing "Off the Avenue." By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer Somewhere between the straight-from-WinnDixie hamburger bun collapsing to pieces and side items like Ruffles potato chips (which, sadly, taste just like Ruffles potato chips) and one packet of "fancy ketchup," one thing becomes clear: This restaurant lacks artistic risk. Caf6 Risque is a Micanopy-based dining establishment owned by Asher Sullivan III of the Floridian food-famous Sullivans. The restaurant is characterized by romantic, dim lighting accented by neon lights. The menu, however, is deficient of the luxurious, gasp-inducing cuisine typically found in restaurants with French-sounding names. Instead, patrons are treated with a bland mix of Americana. Hamburgers. Bacon hamburgers. Eggs. Omelets. BLTs. Chicken sandwiches. Chicken wings. And let's not start with the equally yawn-inspiring drink menu, which is nonexistent. Caf6 Risque does not offer any alcoholic beverages, meaning thirsts for a pre-dinner Trimbach Riesling or an Austrian Pepper Gruner Veltliner will go unquenched. Any hope for the stimulating conversation that only accompanies fine drink is dead the moment you walk in the door -a perplexing element considering the restaurant prides itself as a great place for upwardly mobile men to meet nice young ladies. Sadly, the lack of palette diversity overshadows the most positive aspect of the Caf6: its service. The restaurant is, without exception, staffed with friendly people. Patrons are told to sit wherever they'd like and are not pressured into ordering food until they've examined the menu. Of course, the caf6's menu is so humdrum that customers will likely be disappointed before even meeting the friendly servers. Once you order, however, the staff will check in every five minutes to ensure you have exactly what you need. After eating for about 15 minutes, I became overwhelmed with the attention I received. One waitress, a youthful girl named Skyler, even asked if I would like to dance with her "in private." Being your dedicated food critic, I declined to focus on the "fancy ketchup." Skyler's request was unique from all other establishments I've critiqued and seemed a little too forward. But perhaps that is a result of my New York elitism not blending with the down-home warmth of southern ladies. Speaking of which, the gender of the caf6's personnel seemed oddly disproportionate, as every worker was female. This could have happened Off the simply by chance. Maybe the schedules Avenue of every female worker coincided with that particular Monday afternoon. Regardless, the efficiency with which this allwomen staff ran the caf6 should be celebrated as a sign of female power and an affront to all chauvinistic men. Oh, how Sojourner Truth and Susan B. Anthony would smile! The only complaint about the staff would be their overall flippant attitude toward attire. Several waitresses dressed unprofessionally, and some overtly flaunted their sexuality in an attempt to garner tips. With that type of attitude, the waitresses cost the caf6 a spot on my annual list of great places to impress a date in northern Florida (out this December). Despite their friendliness, patrons will understandably worry about receiving food from the waitresses. If they don't care about their dress, assuming they don't care about hygiene is not a stretch. Alas, these worries are quelled the moment you walk in the bathroom, where a sign reads: "All Employees Must Wash Hands." Rating: 2 stars out of 5 Carnival aims to 'Chomp Cancer' By ALINA TORRES Alligator Contributing Writer Friends for Life of America will be hosting its Chomp Cancer Carnival today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the J. Wayne Reitz Union North Lawn. The annual event is free and will include games, activities, free food and a bounce house to raise awareness of pediatric cancers. Some members of the organization are pediatric cancer survivors and will be at the carnival sharing their experiences. "We hope to spark innovation and get people our age to go and volunteer at the pediatric cancer unit." Dennyfe Agana president of friends for life Leslie Slota, treasurer of Friends for Life of America, said they are not raising money at this event. Friends for Life President Dennyfe Agana said her main goal for the event is to raise awareness of the issue. Agana said pediatric cancers affect a wide range of people from infants to those closer in age to college students. "We hope to spark innovation and get people our age to go and volunteer at the pediatric cancer unit," she said. "A lot of young adults affected with pediatric cancer do not have people to relate with and having a support system like college students help[s] them get through the rough time."

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 9 STUDENT GOVERNMENT SG gives $170,000 to renovate campus game room By JOEY FLECHAS and CHELSEA HULL Alligator Writers The Student Senate unanimously passed a bill to allocate $170,000 for maintenance in the Reitz Union Game Room at the meeting Tuesday night. The last renovations nine years ago drew more students to the game room and increased revenue, according to the bill. The money will be used to replace the Point-ofSale system, which tracks activity sales and controls the scoring system for bowling lanes. Now that the money has been allocated, Budget and Appropriations Chair T.J. Villamil said he and his committee will hear bids from two renovation companies for the lowest costs. "Think of the big picture," he said. "The Reitz game room is falling apart, and we need to fix it. It's a great thing for students to use, and it has been crumbling." During public debate, block tuition dominated the discussion. Seven students, some of whom were senators, spoke out against the idea. UF's administration is working on a proposal to bring to the Board of Trustees at its Dec. 9 to 10 meeting. Senate President Ben Meyers, of the Unite Party, said SG will not pass a resolution until an official proposal comes out of Provost Joe Glover's office. He did say the Senate's opinion, across all three parties, mirrors the opposition expressed by many students. Student Alliance party Sen. Michael Morales, who represents the Lakeside Residential area, spoke in opposition of block tuition. He said it alienates the employed students and makes it harder for them to participate in extracurricular activities. "There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all degree, so why are they proposing a one-size-fits-all tuition?" he asked. Progress Party Sen. Jose Soto said the administration was behaving as a monopoly based in bad economics. "They know they have a captive audience," he said. "They have us by our wallets." Dave Schneider, a member of Students for a Democratic Society and former Progress Party senator, also opposed block tuition, calling it the biggest assault on public education that he has seen in three years. The group plans to hold a rally Nov. 17 on Turlington Plaza at 12:30 p.m. to collect signatures on petitions opposing the measure to deliver to the administration. The researchers are worried supplies would 't reach area HAITI, from page 1 breaks have occurred. The samples they collect will be shipped to UF's Emerging Pathogens Institute for testing. DNA tests of cholera samples by federal health officials indicate it stemmed from an Asian strain. The researchers have traveled to Gressier/ Leogane several times over the past year to assist in constructing an infectious field laboratory to study intestinal cholera. The epidemic has not reached the Cressier/ Leogane area, but UF health researchers worry that if the disease did arrive, life-saving supplies would not 01 -.U get to the rural W il Jarea. Edsel Redden, a former agent with the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural SciRedden ences, will also be traveling to teach residents to prepare a drinkable saline solution, which will allow them to treat the disease on their own. Matt Riva / Alligator Student Sen. Jose Soto talks to the Student Senate on Tuesday night about block tuition. He was one of seven students to speak out in opposition for the plan, calling for a resolution to be passed soon. | She spent two years on the exhibit ARTIST, from page 1 of 0 RLY owls, the sky is made of Dramatic Chipmunks and the moon is composed of multiple Longcats. She used the repetition in her work, she explained, to represent how prominent memes are on the Internet. Rodriguez is also fascinated with the mythologies that arise around memes. She finds it fascinating that Internet users make up their own stories for them, stories that become part of the meme itself. She is quick to compare things like Greek mythology to them as well. "I'm a big sucker for Greek mythologies," she said. "I'm fascinated by how these stories are a meme itself." Though one of her pieces features the story behind Longcat and his nemesis, Tacgnol (that's longcat backwards), another features the two in a much different context. In "The Temptation," they are portrayed as Adam and Eve from the Bible -Tacgnol is tempting Longcat with the knowledge of the Internet. In addition to the more traditional forms of art, Rodriguez designed a video game to go along with her exibition. The game features a 3D landscape that allows you to walk around and interact with different memes.

Sports ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Newton allegedly caught cheating three times at UF By MIKE McCALL firmed or denied the report, but a UF spokesAlligator Staff Writer man saidNewton would not necessarily have mmccall@alligator org faced expulsion in the scenario presented. AP Photo Auburn quarterback Cam Newton allegededly faced the possibility of expulsion when he decided to transfer from UF. Allegations about Auburn quarterback Cam Newton's past off-field conduct are piling up at an equally impressive rate to his Heisman Trophy-caliber stats. The latest talk is of Newton's academic record while playing at Florida, when a source told FOXSports.com that he cheated in class on three separate occasions. According to the source, Newton was caught cheating as a freshman, and, as a sophomore he put his name on another student's paper and purchased one off the Internet when told to write his own. Rumors surfaced that UF football coach Urban Meyer was the source for the story, but he denied that Tuesday in a statement. "Our entire focus right now is on preparing for our biggest game of the year against South Carolina," Meyer said. "For anyone to think that I or anyone on our staff may have leaked information about private student records to the media doesn't know us very well. It's a ridiculous claim and simply not true." The two incidents with the plagiarized papers allegedly took place after Newton's November 2008 run-in with police over the purchase of a stolen laptop, and he was due to appear before UF's Student Conduct Committee in Spring 2009 but transferred instead. No one from Florida has neither con"There are no automatic consequences at the University of Florida. It depends on the totality of the issues." Janine Sikes UF spokeswoman Hearings in front of the Student Conduct Committee are done to produce a recommended course of action for the Dean of Students, who has the final say. "There are no automatic consequences at the University of Florida," UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said. "It depends on the totality of the issues. Each one is a case-by-case basis, and they really mean that. There is no single 'If you do this, this is what happens."' A wide range of punishments is available, from a written reprimand to suspension or expulsion. UF expels roughly one to two students per year and suspends about 10, Sikes said, but both numbers are skewed by students choosing to leave the school rather than face punishment. Representatives of the Florida football team had no comment on the situation. "We can't comment on federally-protected student records," Gators team spokesman Steve McClain said. Gators set to By MATT RUBIN Alligator Writer After finishing up a three-match road trip, Florida will come back to Gainesville to play its final two regular-season matches before ending the year with another threematch road trip. Depending on whether or not the No. 1 Gators (22-1, 15-0 Southeastern Conference) host an NCAA Tournament match, these could be the last home appearances for UF this season. The Gators will take on Mississippi State (11-15, 3-12 SEC) Thursday in the O'Connell Center at 7 p.m. The team is coming off a close 3-2 (25-23, 18-25, 21-25, 25-23, 15-11) victory against Auburn. "As much as that was scary and stressful face Bulldogs and brought so much anxiety, we needed that," senior middle blocker Lauren Bledsoe said. "The tournament is infamous for crazy things happening, so it's nice to get a little piece of that before we even get into the tournament. As much as it sucked to have it get that close and have it be that stressful, it was really an eye-opening experience. Florida's final regularseason home match will be against Alabama (10-15, Bledsoe 2-13) on Sunday at 1 p.m. For Bledsoe, senior libero Erin Fleming and senior outside hitter Callie Rivers, this might be their final showing in front of Gators fans. SEE BLEDSOE, PAGE 16 Allegations n don't want to believe this. I don't want to believe that the sport of college football is stained with feces. But as a reporter who covers the game, I won't be so naive. Auburn quarterback and former Gator Cam Newton is in the middle of a whirlwind that began last week when he was accused of being auctioned off to different teams for six figures. Late Monday night, reports surfaced that he was caught cheating in classes multiple times while he was at UF. And late Tuesday ESPN reported that Newton called a Mississippi ot surprising State recruiter to say money was the reason he signed with Auburn. is any of Anthony Chiang this true? NoChiang Reaction body knows achiang@alligator org for sure. But Twitter @ChiangReaction I'm going to go against the popular American belief: You are innocent until proven guilty.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 15 Hurricanes looking for ways to cut down on penalties Miami has racked up the most flags in the nation THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CORAL GABLES -There was a time in Miami's football history when being the nation's most-penalized team would have been a source of pride. No more. These days, it's only a source of frustration. The Hurricanes are No. 1 nationally in penalties this season with 83 -already more than their season-long average from the last three years -and Miami coach Randy Shannon simply cannot understand how that's the case. Even lobbying to the Atlantic Coast Conference over particularly bothersome calls on a weekly basis, something all teams AV .in the league do anyway, CC, doesn't seem to be helping. _Z_ "It doesn't make me feel good, and it doesn't make the team feel good, and the fans and everybody else keep saying the team is undisciplined," Shannon said. "But I can't go and say,'OK, we got this report back from the (league) office and this is how many calls they've made a mistake on.' I cannot do that. That's not right. Coaches, we decide to keep those reports in-house and confidential." So Shannon wouldn't share specifics on what Miami sends to the ACC and what the ACC sends back to Miami. An educated guess: Sean Spence was featured prominently in those reports this week. The Miami linebacker was lined up in pass coverage against Maryland tight end Matt Furstenburg in the fourth quarter of mr rnouu The Hurricanes lead the nation with 83 penalties this season and average about nine per game. last week's game, facing the right side of the Terrapins' line. Miami's Ramon Buchanan blew past the left side, knocking the ball away from Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien, and the Hurricanes' Marcus Robinson scooped it up for what became a 55-yard touchdown. None of it counted. Spence was called for grabbing Furstenburg's face mask, although replays showed his hands were hitting the Maryland player in the chest, not Furstenburg's helmet. It's the only time a Miami defender has been flagged on a face-mask call this season. How was that possible? "I don't know, but it's what the ref called," Spence said. "I didn't get a chance to watch it. It's behind me." If there is a silver lining in all these yellow flags for Miami, it's that the penalties probably haven't cost the Hurricanes a game yet this season. Dropped passes and blown routes doomed the Hurricanes at Ohio State, nothing went right in the 45-17 loss to Florida State, and Miami could only blame itself after falling behind by 24 points in what became a five-point defeat at Virginia on Oct. 30. Still in the ACC title hunt, Miami (6-3, 4-2) visits Georgia Tech (5-4, 3-3) on Saturday. "We'll just keep working on it," Shannon said. "Nothing else you can do, really."

16, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 Gators ranked No. 1 for fifth straight week BLEDSOE, from page 14 "I'm excited. I'm sure it will be a little sad, but I think it'll be good to see my family," Bledsoe said. "It'll be hard because it will be an emotional thing, but I'll be trying to stay focused on the game at the same time, so who knows what's going to happen?" For Bledsoe, only an SEC and national championship are left to make this year a dream season. "It's going exactly as planned. It couldn't have gone any better," Bledsoe said. "This is the perfect way to go out for a senior year, so far." The Gators are ranked No. 1 for the fifth consecutive week, matching the school record set when the Orange and Blue were the top-ranked team in 1996. Much of the team's success can be attributed to the play of the seniors. Bledsoe ranks fifth in hitting percentage in the SEC and sixth in blocks. Fleming ranks ninth in digs, and Rivers is fourth in service aces. "It's going exactly as planned. It couldn't have gone any better." Lauren Bledsoe UF senior "Every year we hope that our seniors have their best year their final year -that they can leave on such a high -and no senior class really has done that as well as this group has," coach Mary Wise said. "Lauren Bledsoe is finally playing her first complete year as a middle blocker. "Erin Fleming is our starting libero from a limited defensive specialist role getting periodic play throughout most of her career. "Callie Rivers, the heart and soul of our team and the team leader, is playing her very best volleyball of her career." Sunday will be a bittersweet moment for the three seniors and fans that have watched them in the O'Dome the past four years. "What we look forward to on Sunday is recognizing their efforts and contributions over the past four years," Wise said. AL Gold Glove honors announced THE NL AWARDS WILL BE ANNOUNCED TODAY. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK -Ichiro Suzuki won his 10th straight Gold Glove for a full season of fielding excellence. Mark Buehrle won again, perhaps clinching his spot with an acrobatic play on opening day. Derek Jeter, well, his selection is likely to set off another loud round of dispute over whether the award is relevant anymore. Rawlings announced the American League honors Tuesday. Managers and coaches vote for players in their leagues and can't pick players on their own teams. Also chosen were first baseman Mark Teixeira and second baseman Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees; third baseman Evan Longoria and outfielder Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Rays; Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer and Seattle outfielder Franklin Gulierrez. The NL awards will be announced Wednesday. Suzuki tied the AL record for Gold Gloves by an outfielder shared by Ken Griffey Jr. and Al Kaline. The Seattle right fielder has won every year he's been in the big leagues. The overall record for outfielders is held by Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente with 12 each. The awards started in 1957, so there's no telling how many Mays, Clemente or others might have won before then. Angels outfielder Torni Hunter's streak of nine in a row ended this season. Jeter won for the fifth lime at shortstop -at 36, the New York Yankees captain is the oldest AL shortstop to win the Gold Glove since Luis Aparicio was the same age in 1970. Only Ozzie Smith, Omar Vizquel, Aparicio and Mark Belanger have won more total Gold Gloves at shortstop than Jeter. "It is a tremendous honor to receive the Gold Glove award, especially since this recognition comes from managers and coaches for whom I have a great deal of respect. It is particularly gralifyMAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ing to be recognized for defense, as it is something I take a lot of pride in and am constantly working to improve," Jeter said in a statement. Jeter was charged with just six errors and had a career-high .989 fielding percentage, both best among full-lime AL shortstops. But modern fielding charts and rankings consistently put Jeter in the bottom half of their ratings. Two websites that study glovework -www.fangraphs. com with its Ullimate Zone Raling and www.fieldingbible.com -listed Chicago's Alexei Ramirez as the top-fielding AL shortstop with Jeter nowhere close to even middle-of-the-pack status. Ramirez made 20 errors and had a .974 fielding percentage. "I think a lot of errors he got were plays that others wouldn't have gotten to," Buehrle said on a conference call. "I think he was deserving." "I don't see Derek play every day," he said. "I think there are a lot of guys who could've won it." Jeter's range seemed to noticeably decline -he's never been the best at getting to balls up the middle. This season, it seemed more grounders into the hole got through, too, with third baseman Alex Rodriguez ranging less and less to his left. For years, some fans have viewed the Gold Gloves as mostly a popularity contest, even suggesting that a player's performance at the plate helped draw extra attention to his glove. Jeter's wins have often served as a lightning rod for that debate. Serious questions about the Gold Gloves have stirred for more than a decade, growing ever since Rafael Palmeiro won the award at first base in 1999. He played there only 28 games for Texas that season, spending most of the year as a designated hitter. Buehrle was an easy choice for his second Gold Glove -he became the first pitcher with multiple no-hitters and Gold Gloves on his resume. He had a 1.000 fielding percentage in5O chances this year and led major league pitchers with a career-high 11 pickoffs. Yankees captain Derek Jeter, 36, is the oldest AL shortstop to win the Gold Glove since Luis Aparicio did in 1970. ANTHONY, from page 14 Let's break this down further. Newton was allegedly shopped around to schools for $180,000 or more by a shady agent. Now people say he cheated in classes at Florida. Which of the two is the surprising accusation? This has all happened before. Anybody remember Reggie Bush or the FSU cheating scandal? That, right there, is the saddest aspect of this entire story. The fact that there is nothing in these allegations that should shock anyone. Another question: Who cares if he cheated? I usually don't like to generalize, but I'm pretty sure he isn't the only collegiate athlete to take some short cuts in classes. Two-year-old stories of Newton cheating at UF do not interest me. Instead, let's focus on something else. Arrests and troubled athletes go hand in hand with winning. Schools can't keep players out of trouble and graduate players while still taking home college football titles. The Oregon Ducks spent the last couple of seasons getting arrested -currently No. 1 in the BCS. Yes, a school in Oregon is atop the rankings. During coach Urban Meyer's magical run he has had at least 30 player arrests. USC has been great this decade. Oh wait, it's on probation now. Don't get me started on Miami's unprecedented five national championships in less than 20 years. Just go back and watch ESPN's splendid documentary "The U" to see how those players acted. This trend goes on and on. There may be that one school that does it the right way and succeeds on the field for a year or two like Stanford, but that success is often shortlived. If you want to dominate for a long time and make a mark on the college football landscape, you cheat. People are blind to this because, well, it's kind of an ugly reality. This is why I only come away with one thing from these allegations about Newton: Auburn is going to be damn good for years to come. Congrats, Tigers fans. Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Lauren Bledsoe (17) is one of three seniors on the Gators who could be playing in her last career home match this weekend.

Legacy for a Last Chance

PAGE 2

With 20 minutes to go and nothing on the line, Billy Donovan urgently needed someone to step up and prove himself as a leader. Florida was ahead 44-19 to start the second half of an exhibition against NAIA opponent Georgetown (Ky.) College, but times were desperate in Donovan’s mind. After a 2009-10 season in which the Gators frequently came out flat to start a half, Donovan was looking for a player to keep them at maximum intensity and put the opposition away. Which of his seniors would take the reins and lead UF to a strong finish? Would it be Chandler Parsons, the doeverything forward who Donovan says has grown as much as anyone he’s ever coached? Or maybe Vernon Macklin, the 6-foot-10, 240-pound giant who is becoming the dominant interior force he was expected to be out of high school? Even Alex Tyus could rise up and be the guy, despite apparently wavering in his commitment to Florida by testing transfer waters after his sophomore year and feeling out the early stages of the NBA Draft process this past offseason. The answer? None of the above. The Tigers started the half on a 7-2 run over the first 1:02, and Donovan showed that desperate times called for desperate measures: He pulled the entire starting five. “Great teams and really good teams play for 40 minutes, and we didn’t do that,” Donovan said. “I think there’s a leadership component that our older guys need to step in to.” With just two days remaining until the season-opener and only six separating No. 9 UF from a pivotal early-season showdown against No. 4 Ohio State, the Gators have to find a leader if the class that came in following the historic ‘04s is to have any hope of leaving a legacy of its own. The Natural Fit The ascension to a leadership position would be a natural next step for Parsons, who is a far different player and person than he was during his freshman campaign. When the forward first arrived at UF, he was content sticking to the outside and taking open jump shots. Parsons averaged 8.1 points, four rebounds and 1.4 assists while playing 20 minutes per game as a rookie, and his early production gave him a false sense of security. “After his freshman year he thought it was going to be pretty easy,” Donovan said. “Then all of a sudden he got really, really humbled.” Parsons made only modest increases in production despite earning a starter’s minutes as a sophomore, and his up-and-down year came to an end when the team lost in the National Invitational Tournament quarterfinals. But that disappointing finish marked a turning point in his career. “He came to a crossroads of saying, ‘I really have to take a deep look inside myself and find out how I have to get better,’” Donovan said. For Parsons, that meant realizing his true potential and becoming a more well-rounded player. Parsons rededicated himself in the weight room, worked on his ability to rebound and create off the dribble, and retooled his mindset. “He was never in the right place mentally,” Donovan said. “He dealt with it after his sophomore year and really started to become better.” Parsons’ improvement was evident last season, as he saw increases in almost every statistical category and became the face of the program after hitting buzzer-beaters against North Carolina State and South Carolina. But, more than anything, Parsons’ progress was due to him learning how to win, a notion that could be a major factor for a team that had 10 games decided by four points or fewer last season. “I think it’s a little bit of everything,” Parsons said. “I think it’s understanding defense. When the ball isn’t going in the hole we still want to pull it out in tough, physical ways.” Parsons will look to spread that mentality to the freshmen as early as possible so they won’t have to repeat his mistakes. Since the senior has seen minutes at four different positions, he has the experience necessary to provide advice to a variety of players, including freshman swingman Casey Prather. “I think it’s really about communication,” Parsons said. “Casey’s been playing the two, the three, a couple more positions, so I’ve been in his ear a little bit helping him.” Prather is just one member of a heralded recruiting class that consists of five freshmen, including McDonald’s All-American center Patric Young. Each of those players figures to need guidance, and with five starters returning from an NCAA Tournament team, that presence is expected to be there. This will be a major change from Parsons’ first year with the Gators, when there was not a single forward on the roster with more than a year of experience. That lack of maturity forced Parsons to learn largely on his own, a challenge he hopes to save this year’s freshmen from. “I’ve known these plays for four years now,” Parsons said. “So when they’re struggling with the offense or defensive set-ups, I’m there to help them. Even off the court, whether it’s with tutoring or getting to class on time, I want them to understand their responsibilities.” The Vet At 24 years old, Macklin looks to finally come into his own. After enduring a pair of rocky seasons at Georgetown University, the former McDonald’s All-American transferred to UF — a decision that forced him to sit out the 2008-09 season. Upon returning to the floor as a junior, Macklin averaged 10.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game as Florida’s starting center. Now in his final season, the senior who is affectionately called “Vet” will be expected to improve both his numbers and his leadership. Macklin has been a veteran presence in the offseason and during practice, but Donovan still needs Macklin to prove he can take charge when it matters most. “I think Vernon has got to prove that he can lead under duress,” Donovan said. “I’ve tried to create some adversity in practices for him and for our team to see how they would respond, and I don’t think Vernon has responded how I’d like him to.” Donovan describes Macklin as a player with a strong voice and a desire to win who is still learning how to lead because of the turbulent start to his career. Despite the learning curve, the center has shown his capacity to provide wisdom and guidance through his early dealings with Rutgers transfer Mike Rosario, who is facing the same challenges Macklin battled through when he sat out. “Vernon Macklin gave me some pointers on what I can do while I’m not playing,” Rosario said. “He’s been there for me since day one.” In addition to leadership, Donovan expressed the desire to see Macklin progress as both a scorer and a rebounder — developments expected after a busy offseason that included a trip to the LeBron James Skills Academy. “He’s worked hard, but he himself has to be able to handle adversity and be a calming force,” Donovan said. “And there’s no doubt in my mind that he can do that.” The role would seem to fit Macklin like a glove, as the publicly soft-spoken senior has been tagged by many of his teammates as the funniest player on the team due to his off-court antics. Still, Donovan and the Gators understand all of Macklin’s actions in practice and outside the gym mean nothing if he can’t bring it on game days. “I’m a vocal person, I just have to not let little things get to me,” Macklin said. “If something isn’t going my way I still have to be a vocal person and still be a leader.” The silver lining from the Georgetown game is that the Gators won by 26 points, and one could make the argument that they never truly faced the adversity Donovan wants them to overcome. Perhaps if the lead were two instead of 25, the seniors would’ve come out with the fire, intensity and leadership that could be the difference between a deep NCAA Tournament run and another first-round exit. Only time will tell whether the second half against Georgetown was an aberration or a premonition for Macklin, Parsons and the rest of the Gators. Step one is two days away.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 5 UF RESEARCHBy SARA SOLANOAlligator Contributing Writer Wearing her black JanSport backpack crammed with organic chemistry textbooks, sophomore Carly Dworkin makes her weekly trip to Shands at UF to volunteer in the hospital’s emergency department. Dworkin, a biology major, said she aland she knew that she was meant to be an obstetrician since high school. “There is nothing more rewarding I could do with my life than deliver babies,” she said. “There’s something telling me that I belong here and that I’m going to work my way up and become a doctor. There is no ‘What if I don’t make it?’ There’s just do.” A recent study at UF, which was published in the September issue of “The Career Development Quarterly” journal, found that almost half of incoming college freshmen surveyed at a large East Coast university felt that they have a “calling” to a certain career. This is contrary to the popular conception about college students, who are generally thought to have no clue what they want to do, said Ryan Duffy, a UF psychology professor who led the research. Duffy, along with William Sedlacek, an emeritus education professor at the Univer sity of Maryland, looked at 5,523 incoming freshmen ranging in ages, races and backgrounds. About 44 percent said having a career calling was “mostly true” or “totally true” of themselves, and 30 percent said they were searching for one. “They actually have a really good sense of what they want to do and feel like there’s this one career path that’s what they should be doing with their lives,” Duffy said. “I think our study kind of debunks that myth that all these students are just wandering around aimlessly.” Duffy said that the notion of a “calling” is something that is becoming more of a secular term, whereas in the past it was used in a more religious context. Mainstream culture has begun perpetuating this philosslogans such as employment website Monster.com’s “Find your calling” and a recent “O, The Oprah Magazine” cover asking readers if they are living their calling. “I think that the idea of a calling is something that recently has become a little more nomenclature, and people use the term a little more,” Duffy said. “Probably on a weekly basis, I’ll hear someone in an interview or something say, ‘I’ve found my calling.’” From a scholarly standpoint, there has been little to no research on this until recently, so there’s almost no basis for comparison to years past, he said. However, there is very little difference in terms of test scores, GPA or overall happiness between students who have and have not found a career path they feel destined for. Although students may have an idea of what they want to do, current conditions dictate that being open to multiple options may be the wisest choice, Duffy said. Research in the future will focus on whether it’s positive for 18 year olds to have a set career path. “While the percentage of people who have a calling is pretty stable, about a third of the adult population, the percentage of people who are actually doing their calling is probably substantially less now because the economy is so bad and the ability to choose jobs is so low,” he said. While a large percentage of students feel certain of what they want to do, many may change goals or take longer to narrow down their options. Senior telecommunication production years at UF as a chemical engineering major and switched to the College of Journalism and Communications in the fall of 2009. Despite coming into college with a passion for chemistry, he realized he wouldn’t be happy with a career as an engineer, he said. tive while I was still an engineering major that really opened my eyes to the world of since then, I’ve become enamored with it and knew that’s what I actually wanted to do.” Sophomore exploratory major Daniel Karpel said that he believes that students should take whatever they want and not be hindered by the implied need to choose a major as soon as possible. He has enjoyed being able to take classes he wouldn’t have been able to otherwise, such as Chinese. “For me, college wasn’t about what do I want to do, it’s what do I want to learn,” he said.Nearly half of incoming freshmen feel career ‘calling’Duffy

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorUF telecommunications department is failing its studentsWhy is UF hiring professional broadcasters to do anything other than teach students about radio? I really don’t get it. I had to go to WSKY-FM in order to get a real radio experience because UF is failing its students. Those radio stations should be used to train future broadcasters. I thank WSKY’s T.J. Hart, Bob Rose and Andrew Lee every day for giving me the real-world education UF would not. I loved my time at UF, and I learned a lot there, but I think UF can do a lot better. Getting rid of Lex and Terry was a good start, but if it’s going to bring in more professionals, what’s the point of getting rid of them? UF needs to use its broadcast properties to teach students. If it’s about money, I get that; it’s the nature of the beast. But it needs to rememforemost. Dale Jackson UF alumnus NCAA should set an exampleOf course, as a UF alumnus, I hate Auburn, and, of course, I hate Cameron Newton (in a strictly football sense of course). Newton has been criticized for a lot of things that are potentially disastrous to his career. Most obvious is this whole issue of the alleged illegal signing activity, which was worth about $200,000. The issues that have me burning inside, and consequentially want me to see Newton’s career burn as well, are his actions while he was at UF. Newton was found to have stolen a laptop just before he left for junior college. Last time I checked, any theft more than $300 is a felony. Now more recently are allegations he cheated as a student. Isn’t it a little strange a felon and a cheater is a contender for the Heisman and is on full scholarship? It’s a slap in the face to every student who doesn’t commit felony theft and doesn’t cheat in college that such behavior is tolerated simply because he’s good at sports. The message the NCAA is clearly showing is if you’re an awesome football player, you’re above the law other students have to abide by. Had I done any of this, not only would UF have expelled me, but my entire career and reputation would have been jeopar dized. Not only should Newton not be playing football, he should not be allowed in college. Newton should be working at McDonald’s for the rest of his life so he, along with all the other student athletes, can learn they aren’t above the rules. The NCAA has violated everything honest, hard-working students and people strive for. It shows no regard for the rest of the public who are, in some respects, killing themselves to become doctors, lawyers and businessmen and women. If it has any respect for anybody, the NCAA would suspend Newton and force him out of a scholarship. I’m sick and tired of athletes thinking they are kings. But perhaps the greatest problem is how we make them kings. There is no better time to make an example of what we expect our athletic role models to be than right now. Stephen Doucette-Riise UF alumnus I congratulate Chad Kimes in his Tuesday letter for taking 15 or more credits and graduating in record pace, but my previous letter was meant to bring light to those who will suffer with this proposal. While Kimes might be a superstar, whether Kimes or I represent a majority of engineering students cannot be proved. But what is evident is block tuition inevitably only aids one type of student: the student taking 16 to 18 credits. And this is not a fair system of tuition because if I don’t have time to take six classes with labs, hold a job and do research with time for leisure, why should I pay for classes I am not taking? Chris Moody UF student change the lives of manyNext week is a pivotal point in the lives of so many young people. It’s astonishing to think the passage of a single bill can have such a dramatic inlation. If passed, this bill will say a great deal about our concern for today’s youth and our direction for our future. I am, of course, referring to the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. The DREAM Act would, by no means, be a “free pass” for undocumented youth. They will have to meet stringent requirements and are only eligible if they entered the U.S. before the age of 16, have been continuously present in the country for no ment, must obtain a high school diploma and have no criminal record to be covered under the bill’s proposal. Only then can these undocumented youth apply for a six-year “conditional” legal residency. True legal status could later be achieved by either graduating from a two-year college or serving at least two years in the U.S. armed forces. The Senate will vote on whether to pass the DREAM Act during its lame-duck session, which begins Monday. So how can you make a difference? Contact Sen. LeMieux at 1-866-630-7106 and simply ask him to support the DREAM Act. Every call counts.

We have performed Shakespeare outthe community since 2006. To claim that Shakespeare in the Swamp is the only group “determined to keep the curtain from falling on William Shakespeare” is to disregard our yearly commitment to keeping that curtain lifted. Recent performances by the Florida Acrosstown Repertory Theatre further show that Shakespeare is a staple of the commu nity. welcome Shakespeare in the Swamp to the Gainesville theater community, and we are excited to share our duty of keeping that tradition alive. UF Shakespeare in the Park Representatives Alligator readersThis editorial was originally printed by the editorial board at Harvard University’s newspaper, the Harvard Crimson.Ntract of longtime news analyst Juan Williams for his remarks on The O’Reilly Factor. by Williams “undermined his credibility as a news analyst.” After asserting that he is a proponent of civil rights, Williams said, “ But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, most as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.” Despite his provocative statements, Williams should press his personal opinion when he was speaking outside his home news organization. It is impractical to claim that news reporting is independent of bias, and, in this case, it seems that Williams’ remarks were viewed as a problem particularly because own editorial views. News organizations must realize that every employee harbors personal beliefs. In making these remarks, Williams seemed to be admitting a personal emotional reaction rather than a conscious intolerance toward Muslims, although we see how viewers and listeners could easily have interpreted his comments as being bigoted. Instead, his statements further highlight the uncontrollable emotional response that many individuals feel despite their intellectual stance on certain issues. As Williams’ comments suggest, unfortunately, people’s conscious tudes. In this light, we do not believe that Williams’ comments were necessarily bigoted or intended as such; rather, the remarks were an honest admission about his own rote reactions. liams is an inappropriately strong reaction to the situation and to the interpretation that his remarks were directly targeted toward Muslims.

This, in fact, could easily have been another factor in could have lost listeners who interpreted Williams’ comments to be prejudiced. patronage may have mattered more to the organization than keeping Williams employed as a testament to its journalistic integrity and discretion. terest to retain as many listeners as possible. to free speech. This is not to say, however, that there are no bigoted remarks against Muslims being made on air or in the media today. But labeling all statements as such is ineffective when there are many more unambiguously offensive statements to be countered. A statement that warrants such attention as this one did, for example, could likely be written off as one of the many that are undeservedly brought to the national spotlight, and remarks that are truly bigoted could thus go unaddressed. In addition, the media’s association of Williams’ remarks with those that Bill O’Reilly made on “The View” only adds to the false belief that Williams’ statements were as intolerant as O’Reilly’s. In justifying an opinion poll he cited where 70 per a Muslim community center located two blocks from Ground Zero, O’Reilly caused the show’s co-hosts to walk off the set by saying, “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” O’Reilly’s comments were inexcusable, unlike Williams.’ Therefore, a comparison between the two is unfair and inaccurate. someone who was, in fact, implicitly encouraging others from jumping to conclusions about people of any faith. ered the true intent of Williams’ words before quickly assuming that any sensitive comment about Muslims must necessarily result in the termination of one of their employees.

By RASHIELLE TEAPEAlligator Contributing Writer Michael Tuccelli listened to the sound of a chirping frog for over an hour, fascinated. Tuccelli, a professor at UF, never heard a sound until six years ago. Born deaf, he learned sign language to communicate until getting a cochlear hearing implant. The implant is an electronic device that gives a deaf person the sense of hearing by stimulating the hearing nerve in the brain. Before getting the implant, Tuccelli adapted by learning other methods of communicating with people. “My mother would point to a picture, and then to the word,” Tuccelli said. “She also tried teaching me lip-reading, but that wasn’t very effective.” With his own children, Tuccelli took a different approach. He has three hearing children who could all sign to a certain extent before they could actually speak, something Tuccelli sees as an advantage. Tuccelli said exposing his children to sign language improved communication with their parents because associating signs with concepts and words was easier and faster than learning the sound. Plus, early exposure to signing enhanced their imagination. Now, Tuccelli teaches three levels of American Sign Language at UF. Learning ASL is proven to increase job security and IQ levels, Tuccelli said. “It’s great to know how to communicate with another culture,” said Angela Petrizzo, a UF student enrolled in Tuccelli’s class. “Dr. Tuccelli teaches us about a whole new culture.” Tuccelli takes an interactive approach to teaching his ASL students, taking what they already know and relating that to a visual language. “They are amazed at how they can express themselves,” Tuccelli said. Ninety-three percent of communication is nonverbal, making it important to be aware of body language, he said. American Sign Language takes this concept and enforces it, making everything from hand gestures to facial expressions important in conversations. “I love being able to communicate in a whole different way,” said Alison Schultheis, another student in Tuccelli’s class. With the people who he inter acts with, he receives different reactions to being deaf. First impressions are usually apologetic. After that, people will either walk away or try to communicate with him by talking slowly Tuccelli sometimes conducts an experiment with his ASL students to help them understand what it is like being deaf in a hear ing world. In the experiment, he sends students to Oaks Mall in pairs, one pair signing to each other, and the other speaking verbally. After visiting different stores, the students see that the signing pair is approached less, showing the lack of interaction with “deaf” people. For Tuccelli, shifting from this separation because he was deaf to being a part of the hearing world came with challenges. Tuccelli compared his learning to hear to someone learning to would have to understand hues, textures and perception, he had to interpret different pitches, volumes and tones. All these challenges have not held Tuccelli back from doing what he loves. He enjoys sharing his culture with his students and participating in different activities, just like anyone else. Every year, Tuccelli organizes a motorcycle trip to Alaska to raise money for deaf children and their families. “My father told me, ‘If you can’t do it, do it,’” Tuccelli said. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010Steven H. Keys / Alligator StaffMichael Tuccelli, a hearing-impaired UF professor who teaches American Sign Language, signs with his assistant in front of his class during a lecture in Little Hall on Tuesday afternoon. ON CAMPUSBy ALINA TORRESAlligator Contributing Writer Friends for Life of America will be hosting its Chomp Reitz Union North Lawn. The annual event is free and will include games, activities, free food and a bounce house to raise awareness of pediatric cancers. Some members of the organization are pediatric cancer survivors and will be at the carnival sharing their experiences. Leslie Slota, treasurer of Friends for Life of America, said they are not raising money at this event. Friends for Life President Dennyfe Agana said her main goal for the event is to raise awareness of the issue. Agana said pediatric cancers affect a wide range of people from infants to those closer in age to college students. “We hope to spark innovation and get people our age to go and volunteer at the pediatric cancer unit,” she said. “A lot of young adults affected with pediatric cancer do not have people to relate with and having a support system like college students help[s] them get through the rough time.” Carnival aims to ‘Chomp Cancer’Editor’s Note: Due to Thursday’s holiday, this restaurant review is appearing “Off the Avenue.” By TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer Somewhere between the straight-from-WinnDixie hamburger bun collapsing to pieces and side cy ketchup,” one thing becomes clear: This restaurant lacks artistic risk. Caf Risque is a Micanopy-based dining establishment owned by Asher Sullivan III of the Floridian food-famous Sullivans. The restaurant is characterized by romantic, dim lighting accented by neon lights. gasp-inducing cuisine typically found in restaurants with French-sounding names. Instead, patrons are treated with a bland mix of Americana. Hamburgers. Bacon hamburgers. Eggs. Omelets. BLTs. Chicken sandwiches. Chicken wings. And let’s not start with the equally yawn-inspiring drink menu, which is nonexistent. Caf Risque does not offer any alcoholic beverages, meaning thirsts for a pre-dinner Trimbach Riesling or an Austrian Pepper Grner Veltliner will go unquenched. Any hope for the stimulating conversation that walk in the door — a perplexing element consider ing the restaurant prides itself as a great place for upwardly mobile men to meet nice young ladies. Sadly, the lack of palette diversity overshadows the most positive aspect of the Caf: its service. The restaurant is, without exception, staffed with friendly people. Patrons are told to sit wherever they’d like and are not pressured into ordering food until they’ve examined the menu. Of course, the caf’s menu is so humdrum that customers will likely be disappointed before even meeting the friendly servers. Once you order, however, the staff will check in you need. After eating for about 15 minutes, I became overwhelmed with the attention I received. One waitress, a youthful girl named Skyler, even asked if I would like to dance with her “in private.” Being your dedicated food critic, I declined to focus on the “fancy ketchup.” Skyler’s request was unique from all other establishments I’ve critiqued and seemed a little too for ward. But perhaps that is a result of my New York elitism not blending with the down-home warmth of southern ladies. Speaking of which, the gender of the caf’s personnel seemed oddly disproportionate, as every worker was female. This could have happened simply by chance. Maybe the schedules of every female worker coincided with that particular Monday afternoon. women staff ran the caf should be celebrated as a sign of female power and an affront to all chauvinistic men. Oh, how Sojourner Truth and Susan B. Anthony would smile! The only complaint about the staff would be their resses dressed unprofessionally, and some overtly With that type of attitude, the waitresses cost the caf a spot on my annual list of great places to impress a Despite their friendliness, patrons will under standably worry about receiving food from the waitresses.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 9 Matt Riva / Alligator Student Sen. Jose Soto talks to the Student Senate on Tuesday night about block tuition. He was one of seven students to speak out in opposition for the plan, calling for a resolution to be passed soon. STUDENT GOVERNMENT By JOEY FLECHAS and CHELSEA HULL Alligator Writers The Student Senate unanimously passed a bill to allocate $170,000 for maintenance in the Reitz Union Game Room at the meeting Tuesday night. The last renovations nine years ago drew more students to the game room and increased revenue, according to the bill. The money will be used to replace the Point-ofSale system, which tracks activity sales and controls the scoring system for bowling lanes. Now that the money has been allocated, Budget and Appropriations Chair T.J. Villamil said he and his committee will hear bids from two renovation companies for the lowest costs. “Think of the big picture,” he said. “The Reitz game room is falla great thing for students to use, and it has been crumbling.” During public debate, block tuition dominated the discussion. Seven students, some of whom were senators, spoke out against working on a proposal to bring to the Board of Trustees at its Dec. 9 to 10 meeting. Senate President Ben Meyers, of the Unite Party, said SG will cial proposal comes out of Provost pressed by many students. Student Alliance party Sen. Michael Morales, who represents the Lakeside Residential area, spoke in it alienates the employed students and makes it harder for them to tivities. “There is no such thing as a tuition?” he asked. Progress Party Sen. Jose Soto said the administration was behaving as a monopoly based in bad economics. “They know they have a captive audience,” he said. “They have us by our wallets.” Dave Schneider, a member of Students for a Democratic Society and former Progress Party senator, also opposed block tuition, calling it the biggest assault on public education that he has seen in three years. The group plans to hold a rally Nov. 17 on Turlington Plaza at 12:30 p.m. to collect signatures on petitions opposing the measure to deliver to the administration.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CORAL GABLES — There was a time in Miami’s football history when being the nation’s most-penalized team would have been a source of pride. No more. These days, it’s only a source of frustration. The Hurricanes are No. 1 nationally in penalties this season with 83 — already more than their season-long average from the last three years — and Miami coach Randy Shannon simply cannot understand how that’s the case. Even lobbying to the Atlantic Coast Conference over particularly bothersome calls on a weekly basis, something all teams in the league do anyway, doesn’t seem to be helping. “It doesn’t make me feel good, and it doesn’t make the team feel good, and the fans and everybody else keep saying the team is undisciplined,” Shannon said. “But I can’t go and say, ‘OK, we got this this is how many calls they’ve made a mistake on.’ I cannot do that. That’s not right. Coaches, we decide to keep those reports what Miami sends to the ACC and what the ACC sends back to Miami. An educated guess: Sean Spence was featured prominently in those reports this week. The Miami linebacker was lined up in pass coverage against Maryland tight end Matt Furstenburg in the fourth quarter of last week’s game, facing the right side of the Terrapins’ line. Miami’s Ramon Buchanan blew past the left side, knocking the ball away from Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien, and the Hurricanes’ Marcus Robinson scooped it up for what became a 55-yard touchdown. None of it counted. Spence was called for grabbing Furstenburg’s face mask, although replays showed his hands were hitting the Maryland player in the chest, not Furstenburg’s helmet. It’s the only time a Miami defender has son. How was that possible? “I don’t know, but it’s what the ref called,” Spence said. “I didn’t get a chance to watch it. It’s behind me.” If there is a silver lining in all these yelprobably haven’t cost the Hurricanes a game yet this season. Dropped passes and blown routes doomed the Hurricanes at Ohio State, nothing went right in the 45-17 loss to Florida State, and Miami could only blame itself after falling behind by 24 points in ia on Oct. 30. Still in the ACC title hunt, Miami (6-3, 4-2) visits Georgia Tech (5-4, 3-3) on Saturday. “We’ll just keep working on it,” Shannon said. “Nothing else you can do, really.”Hurricanes looking for ways to cut down on penalties AP PhotoThe Hurricanes lead the nation with 83 penalties this season and average about nine per game.

“I’m excited. I’m sure it will be a little sad, but I think it’ll be good to see my family,” Bledsoe said. “It’ll be hard because it will be an emotional thing, but I’ll be trying to stay focused on the game at the same time, so who knows what’s going to happen?” For Bledsoe, only an SEC and national championship are left to make this year a dream season. “It’s going exactly as planned. It couldn’t have gone any better,” Bledsoe said. “This is the perfect way to go out for a senior year, so far.” The Gators are ranked No. 1 matching the school record set when the Orange and Blue were the top-ranked team in 1996. Much of the team’s success can be attributed to the play of hitting percentage in the SEC and sixth in blocks. Fleming ranks ninth in digs, and Rivers is fourth in service aces. “Every year we hope that our seniors have their best year their class really has done that as well as this group has,” coach Mary Wise said. a middle blocker. “Erin Fleming is our starting libero from a limited defensive specialist role getting periodic play throughout most of her career. “Callie Rivers, the heart and soul of our team and the team leader, is playing her very best volleyball of her career.” Sunday will be a bittersweet moment for the three seniors and fans that have watched them in the O’Dome the past four years. “What we look forward to on Sunday is recognizing their efforts and contributions over the past four years,” Wise said. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010AP PhotoYankees captain Derek Jeter, 36, is the oldest AL shortstop to win the Gold Glove since Luis Aparicio did in 1970. THE NL AWARDS WILL BE ANNOUNCED TODAY.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS his 10th straight Gold Glove for a full Buehrle won again, perhaps clinching his spot with an acrobatic play on opening day. Derek Jeter, well, his selection is likely to set off another loud round of dispute over whether the award is relevant anymore. Rawlings announced the American League honors Tuesday.

Only Ozzie Smith, Omar Vizquel, Aparicio and Mark Belanger have won more total Gold Gloves at shortstop than Jeter. “It is a tremendous honor to receive the Gold Glove award, especially since this recognition comes from managers and coaches for whom I have a great deal of respect. It is particularly gratifying to be recognized for defense, as it is something I take a lot of pride in and am constantly working to improve,” Jeter said in a statement. Jeter was charged with just six errors centage, both best among full-time AL shortstops. ings consistently put Jeter in the bottom half of their ratings.

This season, it seemed more grounders into the hole got through, too, with third baseman Alex Rodriguez ranging less and less to his left. For years, some fans have viewed the Gold Gloves as mostly a popularity contest, even suggesting that a player’s performance at the plate helped draw extra attention to his glove. Jeter’s wins have often served as a lightning rod for that debate. Serious questions about the Gold Gloves have stirred for more than a decade, growing ever since Rafael 1999. He played there only 28 games for Texas that season, spending most of the year as a designated hitter. Buehrle was an easy choice for his and Gold Gloves on his resume. He had this year and led major league pitchers with a career-high 11 pickoffs.AL Gold Glove honors announcedLet’s break this down further. Newton was allegedly shopped around to schools for $180,000 or more by a shady agent. Now people say he cheated in classes at Florida. Which of the two is the surprising accusation? This has all happened before. Anybody remember Reggie Bush or the FSU cheating scandal? That, right there, is the saddest aspect of this entire story. The fact that there is nothing in these allegations that should shock anyone. Another question: Who cares if he cheated? I usually don’t like to generalize, but I’m pretty sure he isn’t the only collegiate athlete to take some short cuts in classes. Two-year-old stories of Newton cheating at UF do not interest me. Instead, let’s focus on something else. Arrests and troubled athletes go hand in hand with winning. Schools can’t keep players out of trouble and graduate players while still taking home college football titles. The Oregon Ducks spent the last couple of seasons getin Oregon is atop the rankings. During coach Urban Meyer’s magical run he has had at USC has been great this decade. Oh wait, it’s on probation now. national championships in less than 20 years. Just go back and watch ESPN’s splendid documentary “The U” to see how those players acted. This trend goes on and on. There may be that one school year or two like Stanford, but that success is often shortlived. If you want to dominate for a long time and make a mark on the college football landscape, you cheat. People are blind to this because, well, it’s kind of an ugly reality. This is why I only come away with one thing from these allegations about Newton: Auburn is going to be damn good for years to come. Congrats, Tigers fans.
