* SOUTH CAROLINA
CLINCHED THE SEC EAST
WITH THE WIN.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

The Gators threw a blue-out,
and the Gamecocks blew out their
title hopes.
Florida entered The Swamp
with a revived offense and fan base
Saturday night, but by the fourth
quarter, UF had flat-lined and
thousands of blue-clad supporters
were on their way home.
No. 22 South Carolina dealt No.
24 UF a crushing 36-14 defeat in
front of 90,855, ending the Gators'
hopes of a season-salvaging trip
to the Southeastern Conference
Championship.
Now, the only way Florida is
going to Atlanta is if it's offered a
bid to the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
With their goal of an SEC title
gone, the Gators will have to find
other motivation for their last two
games, such as sending the senior
class out with wins against Appa-
lachian State and Florida State.
"I'm not a quitter," safety Ah-

mad Black said. "I don't think any-
body on our team is a quitter. We'll
stick together and fight through


it."
Saturday's game had all the
hype of a title bout, with UF coach


Urban Meyer saying he wanted it
"to go down in the books."
It did, but in the wrong book.

Steve Spurrier, center, is carried on to the field by his players after defeating Florida to clinch the SEC
East for the first time as South Carolina's coach.


The Gamecocks locked down
the SEC East for the first time in
school history and got their first-
ever win in Gainesville. South Car-
olina coach Steve Spurrier notched
his first victory at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium from the visiting sideline,
snapping Florida's streak of 16
straight wins against division foes.
It was the Gators' worst home
defeat since LSU beat them 36-7
in 2002, and it handed them three
straight losses in The Swamp for
the first time since 1986.
"Our guys were ready for this
week. They gave us everything
they had in practice, and obviously,
it's a severe letdown," Meyer said.
Florida came into the game
with a revamped strategy: a three-
quarterback system that was sup-
posed to give the Gators plenty of
options to fix a struggling offense.
But nothing worked.
Not John Brantley's arm against
the SEC's worst pass defense. He
totaled 46 yards and an intercep-
tion through three quarters, rarely
taking a shot downfield.
Not the three-man weave at
quarterback, which wasn't used
often or effectively.

March helps babies

and cheers, you wouldn't know that
just a year ago they were fighting to
save their daughter's life.

Cyclists cause concern


* "MORE PEOPLE ON BIKES ...
MEANS MORE ACCIDENTS"

By DANIELLE SPATZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF Police Department officials are con-
cerned about students' ignorance of bike
safety laws in a county that ranks as the sec-
ond most dangerous in Florida.
These rankings, which appeared in an
article from the Bradenton Herald, may be a
result of the fact that Florida is such a bike-
friendly state, said UPD Lt. Robert Wagner.
"More people on bikes statistically means
more accidents," he said.
Most bicycle accidents that UPD encoun-


ters involve a car, but these are just reported
incidents. Wagner said that many minor in-
cidents go unreported on campus.
The main cause for such a high number of
accidents on UF's campus is students' lack of
concern for safety laws, Wagner said.
By law, cyclists are considered vehicles
while on the road and therefore must follow
all car laws.
Local Dan Harcha, a junior me-
News chanical engineering major at
UF, works at the Student Gov-
ernment Free Bike Repair and said that some
circumstances require bikers to consider
themselves as cars more than others.
"There are some situations when you

Gainesville Police arrest man accused in November 5 robbery


A Gainesville man was arrested last
Wednesday in connection with a robbery
Nov. 5 during which police say he struck the
victim several times on the face.
According to a police report, Michael Wims
Jr. was charged with unarmed robbery, felony
battery and possession of marijuana. He stole
about $95 and a diamond earring worth $1,200
from Michael Rennold Madrazo.
He had arranged to meet Madrazo, and
when he did he struck him on the face with


a hard object, knocking him to the ground.
Wims then continued to hit the victim on the
face.
A witness told him to stop and stayed with
the victim until an ambulance arrived.
Officers found 3.4 grams of marijuana in
his pocket.
Wims said he hit the victim because he was
concerned the victim was going to hit him first.
He denied taking the money or the earring.

SANTA FE COLLEGE

1,000 honor veterans at Santa Fe's Liberty Fest


By TYLER COLE
and JERRY BRUNO
Alligator Contributing Writers

For Master Sgt. Jim Yakubsin,
coming home from the Vietnam War
wasn't easy.
"Vietnam was televised, and
many people looked at us weird
when we got back because of the im-
ages they saw on TV," he said.
But on Sunday at the first-annual
All American Liberty Fest, Yakubsin
felt like his service was appreciated.
"The Vietnam guys made me feel
what I did was right," he said.
About 1,000 people came togeth-
er at Santa Fe College to honor vet-
erans, ranging from WWII to Iraq, at
the festival.
The event was sponsored by San-
ta Fe's Collegiate Veterans Society
and replaced the Bikers on Parade
event that had been held for the past
nine years.
All of the proceeds raised would
benefit the Gainesville Fisher House
Foundation, according to Patti Fabi-
am, executive director of the founda-
tion.
The foundation is raising money
to build a house on the grounds of
the veterans hospital to serve veter-
ans and their families while they are
being treated for surgery and serious
illness, Fabiani said. Construction is
expected to begin in the fall of 2011.
"Being that it's our first year, I'm
not sure how much we will raise, but
having young kids learning more


about what our veterans do for our
country is really important," Sandra
Torres-Pintos, an event coordinator,
said.
There were 18 veteran organiza-
tions, ranging from the Iwo Trio to
the Korean War Veteran Association.
Each of these organizations had rep-


resentatives that spoke about their
experiences in combat or how they
support the veteran community in
Alachua County.
Warrant Officer Clif J. Cormier
served in the 3rd marine division
in the battle of Iwo Jima in 1945.
Cormier, who is 90 years old, said


the event was special to him because
it helps keep the memories alive.
"I get to share my experience of
65 years ago to anyone that asks," he
said.
Cormier, along with his two
friends who served in the 4th and
5th marine divisions, founded Iwo

Trio so people can learn and discuss
the Battle of Iwo Jima and other ma-
jor battles of WWII.
Jackson Sasser, president of SFC,
said that the liberty festival was one
of the most important events the col-
lege has ever been involved with.
"It's events like these that are the
real treasures of our , . i..,.,,,E "he
said.
Joe GC ll,. :, co-author of "We
Were Soldiers Once...And Young,"
which was made into a film star-
ring Mel Gibson in 2002, was a guest
speaker.
During his speech, he expressed
his gratitude toward veterans and
spoke about his experience as a re-
porter in the Vietnam War.
"I'm here to say thank you, a sim-
ple thank you to the men and wom-
en who let nightmares erupt their
sleep," Galloway said. "I owe you
my life, some of you literally. I can
never pay for that, but I can try."
After Galloway's speech, Sasser
dedicated The Liberty Oak, a memo-
rial on SFC's campus, to all the vet-
erans in attendance at the festival.
He also recognized several veterans,
including some who earned the Pur-
ple Heart for their acts of service.
Sasser said the festival will be an
annual event and that the outcome
for its first year was inspiring.
"I don't want to know anyone
who doesn't respect the warrior,"
Sasser said. "These are the people I
respect - those who fight and sacri-
fice their lives for our country."

Laptop heat may cause reversible male infertility


* TRENDS SHOW FERTILITY IS DROPPING IN
DEVELOPED COUNTRIES.

By ERIC HENELY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A study released last week shows that high heat from
laptops could lead to a shortage of power below the belt
for men.
The study, which was published online in the journal
Fertility and Sterility, shows there might be a potential
link between decreased fertility for men and heat from
laptops.
Leg position is a primary factor, said Dr. Denis Healey,
a urologist at Bay Medical Center in Panama City who
completed his residency at UF.
He believes that laptop trays, which are designed to


cool the bottom of a laptop, are not as effective as simply
keeping an open-leg position.
It's one of the most heat-sensitive areas of the body,
and just a few degrees of temperature change can pro-
foundly affect performance, he said.
"I believe that there is going to be a lot
more fertility problems in the future as a
result of laptop usage," Healey said.
After avoiding heat for six months to
a year, sperm counts can increase back
to normal.
Viee ~ However, Healey warned that the
longer the period of heat exposure, the
more permanent the damage becomes.
Under a microscope, he said that he can easily tell
which sperm have been damaged by heat.
"The sperm have blown-up heads. A lot of them will


either have no tails or very short tails. It's very notice-
able," he said.
Dr. Johannes Vieweg, chairman of the Department of
Urology at UF, said the study is part of a larger effort to
determine why fertility rates are dropping in developed
countries.
There are alarming trends, particularly in Europe, that
suggest that infertility is becoming more pronounced, he
said.
Both doctors agree on the importance of prevention
and a simple self-examination that can detect many tes-
ticular and fertility problems.
If men do notice changes, Vieweg recommends that
they go to the doctor without being ashamed.
"Urology isn't something that naturally calls to you,"
Healey said. "If we can prevent this from becoming a
problem, everyone benefits."


Shands patients get artsy

Since the Shands Arts in

Art in Motion, a program for
Parkinson's disease patients,

Castle was just one of the

About 75 Shands patients

painting, Zumba and yoga
classes.
Events like this, Castle said,
are good ways for Parkinson's
disease patients and other pa-
tients to get out of the house
or hospital room and do some-
thing fun that allows them to
mingle with others.
"Art can make a huge dif-
ference in the healing envi-
ronment and the hospital ex-
perience," said Alie Wickham,
program assistant for Shands
Arts in Medicine.
"We need people to be in-
volved to help this field grow
and develop," she said.

"Art is not an alternative
to the health care that Shands
provides," Wickham said.
"It is a complement. Patients
need to heal spiritually along

play a key role in that."


GATOR NATION

Alumni take Gator


Nation into enemy


territory at FSU


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

At Florida State University's
law school, deep within the en-
emy's camp, there occasionally
hangs a sign that says, "Work'Em
Silly, Gators."
This icon of The Swamp,
painted on a pillowcase, is hung
by the Litigators, a student-run
organization within FSU's law
school that provides a home away
from home for the numerous UF
graduate students that attend the
college.
Sometimes, it serves as a re-
cruitment tool during times when
prospective students come and
visit the school, said president
Kim Siomkos, who, like most Liti-
gators, is a UF graduate.
The group wants Gainesville
students to know that despite
going to a rival school, there is a
group of people who share a com-
mon bond - being a Gator.
"Gainesville will always be my
home," Siomkos said. "So any-
thing I can do to remind me of be-
ing there is something that I want
to get involved in."
The group primarily func-
tions as a social group and a way
for students from Gainesville to
network with other law students
with UF undergraduate degrees
who found their way up north to
Tallahassee.
They host game-day tailgates
and game-watching parties, hold
monthly meetings, go to Gator
S.1.11 games when they play
FSU and also host various events
like beer tasting with the Capital
Area Gator Club.
One of the group's biggest
events is their UF-FSU rivalry
week, which was hosted last week
so as not to coincide with exams.
"We try to have it in early No-
vember before the studying for
exams gets too overwhelming or


too hectic so people can still par-
ticipate and have a good time,"
said treasurer Brett Miller.
During the week, the stairwell
of the school is decorated on one
side with orange and blue and
the other side in garnet and gold,
complete with the slogans, "If
you're not a Gator, then you're
Gator bait," and "Gator haters."
The week also includes a pow-
derpuff game, a canned food drive
and a Mr. FSU pageant.
The school's administration
seems pleased with the group,
even though it is dedicated to
proving its loyalty to a rival
school.
"They're very, very helpful to
our school," said Don Weidner,
the dean of FSU College of Law.
"UF is a terrific undergraduate
Student Body, and to be sure, we
very actively recruit undergradu-
ate UF students, and they're very
active in that effort."

"Gainesville will always
be my home."
Kim Siomkos
UF graduate and litigator

One of the reasons Weidner
said a organization like Litigators
is helpful is because of the sheer
volume of UF graduates that the
college receives. In two out of
the last three incoming classes of
law students, UF graduates have
outnumbered the graduates from
every other university, including
FSU.
Siomkos said she enjoys hav-
ing the backing of the administra-
tion.
"This is one of the selling
points for me for FSU Law," she
said, "the fact that an entire facul-
ty and administration can get be-
hind us and realize we're not here
to be an annoyance, we're here to
be an asset."

International week to showcase opportunities abroad


* THE GOAL IS TO MAKE STUDENTS
AWARE OF GLOBAL ISSUES.

By GRETCHEN GORDIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students and faculty will have the
opportunity to celebrate the benefits of
international education and exchange this
week.
Mabel Cardec, outreach coordinator for
the UF International Center, said the events
during International Education Week are
offered at UF to make people aware of the


importance of global issues.
"The Gator Nation is everywhere
around the world - not just on campus or
in Gainesville," Cardec said. "We need stu-
dents in higher education to realize this to
prepare for their future careers."
This year's theme, "Making Global Con-
nections," will highlight opportunities
available for international engagement on
campus and around the world.
The kick-off event is today at 10:15 a.m.
with a brief opening ceremony in the Hub
highlighting the week's activities with a
mini-concert featuring UF's African choir.
The UF College of Education is also host-


ing an event today at 12:30 p.m. in Norman
Hall with international food and panels of
students and faculty about how their in-
ternational experiences have affected their
work.
"The Gator Nation is everywhere
around the world."
Mabel Cardec
Outreach Coordinator, UFIC

Dean R. .1 11, a UFIC study abroad
adviser, said students who study abroad
can discover so much by learning in a dif-


ferent environment.
"Your ability to learn is amazing when
you're abroad," R...:I .-II said. "Learning
customs from new people that speak a dif-
ferent language presents a good opportu-
nity to grow as a person."
On Friday, UFIC will host "NGO/PVO
Day: Extending International C. .11,1:. .1 ,-
tion and Networking" from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
in the Reitz Union Auditorium and Grand
. :.II ...... Salon A and E.
"We have so many international stu-
dents here so it's nice to have events that
will interest those students and show how
internationally diverse UF is," he said.

Editorial

Party Foul

Rep. Shuler segmenting

Democrats

J ust when everyone thought things couldn't get any worse
for the Democrats in Congress with the wreckage still be-
ing cleaned from precincts across the country and the
capitol nearly oozing blue blood down its steps, in walks
little-known Rep. Heath Shuler to shake things up.
Shuler, a North Carolina Democrat, announced Sunday he
would challenge current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
in her run for leader of the now-minority party in the House
of Representatives.
Saying that :I I.. ' ',, Pelosi to continue to lead the Demo-
crats in the House is "unacceptable," Shuler said he's going
to "press forward" in forcing Pelosi to fight for the leader-
ship.
Casting the Democrat from all-too-liberal California as,
well, too liberal, Shuler also said he's the better moderate
choice to Pelosi's tree-hugging, health-care-lauding West
Coast style for the Democrats.
And Shuler knows he can't win.
Adding he doesn't have the votes to beat the powerhouse
that is Pelosi, Shuler's challenge acts more as a warning to
Democrats in Congress fighting for "liberal" things like so-
cial welfare and health care.
And after a "shellacking" in the midterm elections, Demo-
crats don't need in-party quarreling. Although Shuler might
have good intentions to bring his party a little to the right to
appease more voters come 2012, Shuler is only further seg-
menting his already-injured party.
We're just looking forward to Pelosi,. *j['i-,.ll singing her
own rendition of Beyonce's "To the left, to the left."


Graphic design


Cigarettes are getting
graphic.
After an announce-
ment Wednesday, the Food
and Drug Administration
said it would make the first
major change to cigarette
packaging in more than 25
years by requiring ciga-
rette companies to include
graphic warnings above the
brand name of each box of
cigarettes.
A mere warning from the
Surgeon General admonish-
ing smokers not to light up
while pregnant or a, "Hey,
you might get cancer,"
warning isn't cutting it any-
more for the FDA.
The definitely-not-
suitable-for-picture-books
graphics will display images
ranging from decaying teeth
to a corpse in an attempt to
persuade smokers to put
down the pack for good.
And when the Centers
for Disease Control and Pre-


vention estimates smokers
cost America $193 billion
annually in lost productiv-
ity and health care costs,
we couldn't be happier with
the extra efforts the FDA is
making to put an end to this
deadly habit that holds the
dubious title as the No. 1
cause of preventable death
in America.
But, at the same time, we
realize smokers are more
than aware of the dangers
associated with lighting up.
Smokers know each time
they choose to smoke they
cut minute after minute off
their lives. Smokers have
seen the images of tar-black,
tobacco-tainted lungs.
So, although we fully
support the graphic warn-
ing labels or any other sen-
sible measure to prevent
deaths from tobacco abuse,
we realize smokers are still
going to smoke.
And that's a shame.

Column

Olbermann should look to Fox for example


o apparently Keith C';1. i._ ,'ii' supports Democrats.
Fancy that.
A little more than a week ago, the MSNBC talk-
show host was suspended because he violated NBC guide-
lines about giving campaign donations. The punishment
for this was an "indefinite suspension," a phrase we know
all too well in Gainesville. Right, Chris Rainey?
Fortunately for Olbermann, the reaction of bleeding
blue hearts across the country, plus the horrific thought of
what would happen to MSNBC ratings without him, re-
sulted in his suspension lasting for a horrifyingly anxiety-
invoking two business days.
You can't really blame Cl. II:. i,.''ii's bosses, though.
Technically, he did break the rule by donating the maxi-
mum legal amount to three Democrat candidates.
But did he really break the spirit of the rule? The rule
was designed to protect the journalistic integrity of those
working for NBC's non-biased hard-news shows. That
makes sense, and it's actually a pretty good rule that ex-
ists for all The New York Times and The Washington Post
journalists.
But is anyone not dying from a bleeding heart really
going to sit there and tell me "Countdown with Keith Ol-
bermann" is a non-biased, hard-news show? That same
person would also probably be quick to tell me Glenn
Beck hands out hugs to Democrats :I 1l '", down the
street. Truth is we all know where C11:.l.-, .-ii','s loyalties
lie, and there's nothing wrong with that. If you don't like
his opinions, change the channel to Fox News. But as the
face of an opinionated show, should he really be held ac-
countable to the same rules as the journalists who work
for the hard-news shows of NBC?
There is precedent for news companies :,II.. '',, its
hosts to donate money. In fact, all we have to do is look


o to C''i:._ ,,:,,'i's favorite conversa-
tion piece to find an example of this.
Fox News does, in fact, allow its
employees to donate to campaign
funds, a rule its hosts take advantage
of quite often. This past campaign
Chris Dodson cycle Fox's parent company, News
letters@alligatororg Corp., dished out $1.25 million in
campaign donations. Of course, 01-
bermann did publicly make fun of Fox for that, which is
all-too-ironic now.
There is another way of looking at this, though. The
amount of face time opinionated shows give candidates
running for office is worth a lot more to them than the
$2,400 CIL:.-...:,. was legally allowed to donate. On
shows like "Countdown," you don't see many non-liberal
faces very often, if ever. Meaning, all of the time they al-
locate on their shows to doing interviews is basically one
long, free advertisement for the candidates. So, in that
case, everyone hosting an opinionated show is donating
to a campaign by means of saving them money. If MSN-
BC took that route, it'd be running a lot of reruns during
prime time.
The real question here is why doesn't MSNBC just re-
move the rule and take the Fox approach? For once, sur-
prisingly, I think Fox got something right. How does it
make any sense to punish a TV broadcast journalist for
giving contributions when, in reality, he or she is doing
the same thing every time he or she has a guest on his or
her show?
Somehow, though, I don't think Cl1:., ,I ii:i,, will admit
Fox got this one right - at least not in as many words.

Letters to the Editor
Israel's relationship with U.S. vital
Some political commentators argue Is-
rael is a strategic liability to the foreign
policy interests of the United States and
that America would benefit from lessening
or cutting ties with Israel. Although the
U.S.-Israel alliance, just like any alliance,
isn't perfect, the commonalities and inten-
sive cooperation between Israel and the
U.S. make Israel an indispensable Ameri-
can ally.
Common values ensure the foundation
for the unbreakable bond between Israel
and the U.S.; Israel is the only functioning
democracy in a part of the world that con-
tains mostly autocratic regimes susceptible
to radical coups at any time.
Israel is the only country in the Middle
East that grants full rights to women, re-
ligious minorities and gay people and
protects free speech and freedom of the
press.
As a beacon for democracy and human
rights in the Middle East, Israel is the only
nation in the region with which support
for the U.S. is guaranteed. This guaranteed
support remains critical as Israel and the
U.S. confront common enemies.
The U.S. receives a substantial bargain
annually by supplying Israel with secu-
rity assistance that enables Israel to fight
terrorism and America's enemies without
forcing the U.S. to commit troops on the
ground.
Israel's location allows it to serve as a
strategic American outpost in a region vi-
tal to America's - i,.-, _ - considerations and
foreign policy interests. In addition to pro-
viding bases for the U.S. military to refuel
planes and restock ships, Israel has shared
vital intelligence with the U.S. Israel is
the U.S.' strongest ally in addressing the
threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons
capability.
Israel frequently contributes its inno-
vative prowess and cutting-edge tech-
nologies to the U.S. military in the form of
life-saving equipment, including the emer-
gency bandage and armor-plated tanks.
Israel ultimately provides an irreplace-
able wealth of resources and knowledge
for America's strategic interests in the
Middle East.
While detractors argue Israel negative-
ly affects America's relationship with the
Arab world, America's historically strong


relations with several key Arab govern-
ments render that argument somewhat
inaccurate.
Additionally, many of those in the
Middle East who despise Israel do so be-
cause they perceive Israel as an extension
of America. This is clearly evident at anti-
Israel demonstrations, where American
and Israeli flags are burned beside each
other and demonstrators refer to America
as the "Big Satan" and Israel as the "Little
Satan."
I encourage every student at UF to at-
tend the Israel Week events sponsored by
the Jewish Student Union because Israel is
beyond a Jewish cause; supporting Israel
is American. For more information on Is-
rael Week, visit the Jewish Student Union's
Facebook group.

We all have an important part to play in
sustainability
I'd like to thank Chris Marth for the Fri-
day letter highlighting a topic important
to campus sustainability that both staff
and students play a part in improving.
Almost 100 percent of UF's irrigation
water is reclaimed from our on-campus
wastewater treatment facility. The re-
quirement to water landscapes before 10
a.m. and after 4 p.m.and only twice a week
applies to potable water resources.
Our storage capacity for treated wa-
ter at UF is surpassed by our generation
of water that needs to be treated. It's an
unfortunate reality that we can and some-
times need to irrigate at all times of the
day and night to distribute the reclaimed
water.
Much of the sustainability concern is on
the front end of this equation. Our labo-
ratories and building users do not always
treat water as a precious commodity.
The Office of Sustainability, Physical
Plant Division and Environmental Health
and Safety staff are trying to work with
laboratory users and building managers
on campus to install water-saving devices
and implement behaviors that save wa-
ter, but there isn't a financial incentive to
spend funds on water conservation mea-
sures that can make things difficult.


One example of an effort being made
for water conservation at UF is the pro-
gram designed by the department of hous-
ing. The water conservation campaign
helps students understand the importance
of conserving water, while providing them
unique tools and resources like shower
timers to help make it an engaging learn-
ing process.
Concerning Marth's specific comments
about sprinklers spraying sidewalks rather
than grass, the best way to resolve this or
any problem with campus infrastructure is
to call the Physical Plant Division to report
the problem. If you spot an irrigation-re-
lated problem or notice sprinkler systems
running for an excessive amount of time,
please contact it at 352-392-1121.
We all have an important part to play
in helping our university and campus be-
come more sustainable.

Gator Nation glory days long gone
As if three losses and a baffling offen-
sive scheme weren't enough, the Gators
-: ...rl :1I team managed to bump itself off
the road to the Southeastern Conference
championship Saturday, losing against the
South Carolina Gamecocks 36 to 14.
The Gamecocks, for the first time in his-
tory, defeated the Gators in The Swamp
and crushed any hopes of a Gator SEC
championship title.
A failure to plan is a plan to fail but ap-
parently, Steve Addazio, UF offensive co-
ordinator, didn't get the memo.
The new offensive scheme, led with
a quarterback and two pseudo-quarter-
backs, proved to be a massive failure and
left Gator fans wondering, "Who is our
quarterback, and what are they doing?"
Apparently, variety is not a big enough
factor to win football games. Neither is a
fiery start. Andre Debose, a redshirt fresh-
man wide receiver, returned the opening
kickoff for a touchdown, but what hap-
pened next surprised everyone.
Ahmad Black and cornerback Janons
Jenkins picked up most of the slack for
the defense in the second half of the game,
but they alone were not enough to make
a game-changing impact for the already


struggling Gators on their way to failure.
What is obvious is that something needs
to change.
The Gators need to use our offensive
weapons more effectively and stop relying
on a quarterback-running back scheme be-
cause we clearly don't have it down.
The days of the Tebow-Harvin power-
house are long gone, and the earlier the
coaches and coordinators accept it, the
better.
Use the advantages of the wide receiv-
ers' and running backs' speed and pair it
with the versatility and size of the tight
ends and we could be unstoppable.
Gators, we have to do better.
Embracing the new shape of the Gator
offense and finding a way to use the re-
cruiting class effectively are the next chal-
lenges for the team to overcome.
Of course, SEC title hopes are a thing
of the past, but we can improve from here
and regain some of that lost dignity, pride
and respect for Gator Nation football.
Jasmine Earls
UF student

Gator Nation has fickle fans
Dear Gator Nation,
You are some of the worst fans on the
planet. Whenever your team is winning
you cheer your hearts out, but when we're
not doing so well you don't cheer. When
the team makes plays you don't agree with
you actually start to jeer the team.
Do you seriously think that's going to
make them play better? A good number of
people also left before the end of the third
quarter.
We still could have caught up at that
time. Some of you don't live up to the
words, "In all kinds of weather we all stick
together for F-L-O-R-I-D-A." You should
be ashamed you only support your team
when we're winning and not at all times.
The Gators are not invincible, like every
other team.
We had bad times in the past and will
have bad times again. I know I will still
cheer no matter how our team is doing.
And to everyone who stayed the whole
game and cheered no matter how down
we were, I thank you whole-heartedly. Go
Gators!

AROUND GAINESVILLE

Middle schoolers write to South African pen pals


By ESTEE BECK
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville middle school students, some
of whom have never been outside of central
Florida, are making connections across the
world.
Three middle schools in Gainesville are
part of a pen pal program, allowing stu-
dents to communicate with other students
their own age in South Africa.
It started with Science Partners in Inqui-
ry-based C. .11: I:. ., :,r .-. Education, a project
funded by the National Science Foundation
for UF graduate students of various studies.
SPICE, which pairs a graduate student with
a participating teacher at one of six Alachua
County schools, aims to create hands-on,
inquiry-based lessons or activities for stu-


dents to teach ecosystem health.
The NSF awarded SPICE with a one-
time grant to travel to South Africa for re-
search purposes and to visit South African
schools.
But a three-week trip in the summer of
2009 was not enough for Darina Palacio.
"We wanted to give back and continue
the relationship," said Palacio, a second-
year environmental engineering graduate
student.
Palacio, who does her SPICE activities at
Howard W. Bishop Middle School, spear-
headed the pen pal project.
About 100 students there, along with
about 100 at Lincoln Middle School and 100
at A.L. Mebane Middle School, wrote letters
to 130 students in South Africa at Mandeni
Primary School in February, Palacio said.


South African students responded to the
letters in June, according to May Steward,
a seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Middle
School. The last scheduled delivery of the
international letters was Friday to Stew-
ard's students.
"They're learning things they never
thought they would."
May Steward
Seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Middle
School

Steward, who has been working with
UF's SPICE for six years, said the pen pal
project has changed her students' perspec-
tives of the world.
"They see that the kids aren't that differ-


ent from them," Steward said.
The letters, delivered in giant pink and
orange envelopes, were decorated with col-
orful notes, pictures, drawings and maga-
zine cutouts. Messages read, "I love you,"
"friends forever" and "God may bless you,"
along with facts about each student's life.
Palacio said SPICE also held a school
supplies drive from January to February
and sent two large suitcases full of supplies
to Mandeni.
Mandeni was able to start new art class-
es because of the supply delivery.
SPICE will not continue to coordinate
letter deliveries, but students are highly en-
couraged to keep contact.
"They're learning things they never
thought they would," Steward said of her
students. "They are ecstatic."


Participants in this year's event brought in about $65,000


UAl Il , from page 1

"You never think this is going to
happen to you," she said. "I did ev-
erything by the book and still ended
up with a premature baby."
According to March of Dimes
statistics, one out of eight babies is
born preterm. Gators March for Ba-
bies was created so college students,
teachers and alumni could get in-
volved with a growing epidemic.
The event was a 5k walk/run
through the UF campus with "spirit
stations" along the way with give-
aways and free cupcakes, popcorn
and brownies. Participants who
made it to the end walked under an
arch of purple and white balloons,
greeted by the UF band, Dazzlers
and the UF gymnastics team.
Betsy Trent, executive director
of March of Dimes in North Central
Florida, said this year brought in
about $65,000 to fund various pro-
grams and grants, like smoking ces-
sation for mothers and support for
families with prematurity issues.
She said brain development
is crucial in the last few weeks of
pregnancy, and mothers should
try to go full term if possible. A re-
cent study funded by the March of
Dimes found that some mothers and
doctors choose to induce labor and


have Caesarean sections out of con-
venience and not of necessity.
Cecelia Ribuffo knows love and
loss all too well. She always wanted
a baby girl. When she was little, she
would cradle her favorite doll and
imagine what it would be like to
hold her own child in her arms.
In college, she got pregnant and
thought she finally had everything
she wanted. It wasn't so. Early
pregnancy was marred by constant
cramping. And
she wasn't gain-
ing weight. She
knew something
was wrong. At
first, the doc-
tors said she was
"anxious."
a Ribuffo, in
Meyver constant pain, felt
like her baby was having seizures in-
side of her. When they cut Annabelle
out she weighed only 2 pounds.
"I felt so sorry for her. You ex-
pect your little Gerber '::.1 " she
said. "Instead you have a child that's
holding on for dear life."
The situation wasn't ideal, but
the Ribuffos were a family. How-
ever, before the shutter clicked for
a family photo by the incubator, the
doctor walked in with bad news.
Annabelle's brain was bleeding.
Doctors tried an experimental


procedure that involved burning a
hole into her brain. It didn't work.
They tried a brain shunt to de-
crease -' .111 i,, Through the ordeal,
Ribuffo tried toput on a brave face,
but she was tortured.
Finally, Annabelle stabilized and
the Ribuffos could breathe. They
registered at Bables"R"Us and took
a trip to Walt Disney World. When
they got back, they were on a high,
only to be greeted by bad news. An-
nabelle was fussy and didn't want
to be held. Her head started grow-
ing again. She had hydrocephalus, a
buildup of spinal fluid in the brain.
It can be deadly, moreso for infants.
An MRI of Annabelle's brain
showed that there was barely any
fluid left. It was all black with a thin
layer of red. She was brain dead.
Annabelle would never know who
she was, she'd never know her
parents, she'd never know Santa
Claus. After all the fighting and
fear, all the surgeries and pain, all
the hope you could squeeze out
of a human being, it was over.
Even though she suffered an un-
speakable loss, Ribuffo wants others
to know this could happen to them.
And even though she probably can't
carry another baby, her sister-in-law
offered to be a surrogate mother.
They started the process last
week.

Wagner: UPD is focusing less on ticketing, more on preventing rule-breaking


BIKE, from page 1


have to make yourself big, basically make
yourself a car," he said.
An example of such a situation would be
when a biker intends to make a left turn. In
those instances, a cyclist should enter into
the left vehicle lane and use the appropriate
hand signals.
Wagner said that in addition to forgetting
to use these signals, many cyclists fail to stop
at red lights.
Another concern that has raised safety
issues involves headsets. Florida law says
people can't operate a vehicle - including
a bicycle - while wearing a headset, head-
phone or any other listening device besides
a hearing aid, according to Florida Bicycle
Laws.
Bike riders also commonly disregard the
ordinance that requires them to ride with


lights at night. Wagner said this requirement
is not only to help riders see while riding, but
also to make cyclists more visible to other ve-
hicles.
Harcha understands how important it
is for bikers to practice "defensive riding."
Crowded bike lanes raise a need for bikers to
be aware of other riders.
Harcha said bikers also have to be aware
of cars.
"You gotta watch out for cars because cars
won't watch out for you," he said.
Harcha experienced this firsthand when
he was in a bike accident during the 2009
spring semester. A driver didn't see him as
he was crossing Gale Lemerand Drive and
hit his front tire, sending him flying through
the air.
Harcha, who woke up in the hospital with
a fractured left temporal bone and wrist, said
he was not wearing a helmet. After the acci-


dent, he said he became much more serious
about bicycle safety, specifically helmet use.
He now considers wearing a helmet "the
most important thing you can do" while rid-
ing a bike.
Wagner said a high percentage of bike ac-
cident injuries are head injuries.
Harcha learned this the hard way.
"If you fall over, your head
Public is the farthest thing from the
Safety ground," he said.
Sara Drumm, a sophomore
journalism major at UF, said she sees bicycle
accidents on campus all the time. After de-
ciding she didn't feel safe riding on campus
last year, she left her bike on campus hoping
that it would be picked up by UPD at the end
of the year.
"Watching the bikers on campus makes
me feel like I would probably crash into
someone and die," she said.


Wagner said UPD is focusing less on tick-
eting students who are breaking rules and
more on preventing the rules from being
broken in the first place.
UPD gives presentations at Freshman
Preview Orientation weekends as well as at
the meetings of different campus organiza-
tions. These presentations highlight the im-
portance of bicycle safety to student cyclists
and remind them of the laws.
The presentations are also meant to in-
form students of the potential dangers in-
volved with riding bicycles.
There's a gray area, however. Bikers are
allowed in some areas that cars are not, and
many of these areas are on campus.
Adam Butler, a junior at UF, said that a
lot of bike safety should be second nature for
riders.
"You need to use common sense and not
run over people," he said.

Florida's NCAA Tournament run ends in shootout


* DUKE BEAT UF 4-2.

By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Writer

It was a game of d]aj vu. For the
second time this season, Florida
and Duke played for 120 minutes.
And both times the two teams left
everything out on the field.
But Sunday afternoon, Becky
Burleigh's Gators ran out of gas
when the clock wasn't even tick-
ing.

"Obviously that was a dis-
appointing finish to a great
season."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

No. 5 Florida, a No. 2 seed in
the NCAA Tournament, lost to the
Blue Devils in a penalty shootout,
leaving a sad taste in many Gators'
mouths.
"Obviously that was a disap-
pointing finish to a great season,"
Burleigh said. "I hand it to Duke.
They defended hard. I thought that
they played really hard."
In a physical battle that pitted
the two familiar opponents, Duke
was able to outlast Florida by scor-
ing all four of its penalty kick op-


portunities. After a scoreless two
halves and two overtimes, a terrific
season that included sweeping the


Southeastern Conference Champi-
onships was down to who could
kick the ball the best from 12 yards


away.
"We had to be at the top of our
game," Duke coach Robbie Church


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
UF midfielder Erika Tymrak (17) and the Gators were eliminated in the second round of the NCAA Tour-
nament against Duke on Sunday.


said. "We got by by the slimmest
of margins. It's a tough way to win
and a tough way to lose."
The game was controlled by a
constant ebb and flow. Both teams
defended relentlessly, and at times
the referee seemed to lose control.
There were a combined 27 fouls
in the game, but one that wasn't
called was perhaps the play of the
game.
With less than a minute to go
in the second overtime, SEC Tour-
nament MVP Erika Tymrak pos-
sessed the ball at the top of Duke's
box. Quickly changing direction to
get the ball back on her right foot,
Tymrak was body-checked by a
Blue Devils defender. But there
was no call.
In a game in which the referee
kept the whistle close, a packed
James G. Pressly Stadium went
nuts when he decided not to make
the call.
However, the officials did not
decide the game, as Florida failed
to mount constant pressure on the
Duke defense.
"We were not able to break
them down enough to get good op-
portunities," Burleigh said. "It just
seemed like we were just a little bit
out of sync in terms of our passing
and connecting with each other."


UF FOOTBALL

Lattimore gashes Gators


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistrn@alligator org

Marcus Lattimore was stood up, forward
progress halted, on the Florida 5-yard line.
Then, his linemen ran up behind him
and pushed him into the end zone for his
third score of the game - the cherry on top
of South Carolina's 36-14 victory.
It was the perfect end to the night - even
when UF stopped Lattimore, it couldn't re-
ally stop Lattimore.
South Carolina's freshman workhorse
rushed 40 times for 212 yards and three
scores, all career highs.
It was the third time this season Lat-
timore went over 180 yards (Georgia and
Tennessee) and the second time he went
over 35 carries (Georgia).
"We needed to have great run defense,


and we didn't," defensive coordinator Ter-
yl Austin said.
UF's front seven couldn't contain USC's
powerful ground game from start to finish,
as Lattimore ran to build a lead and then
maintain it.
Kentucky's Derrick Locke held the pre-
vious high rushing total
against UF's defense this
season, going for 103 on
the ground in a 48-14
blowout loss.
The 6-foot, 218-pound
back ran for 83 yards in the
first half Saturday, break-
Lattimore ing tackles and dragging
defenders for extra yards.
Lattimore's physical running style was too
much for the Gators' defense.
"He did a great job running through

Gamecocks double Gators' time of possession


LATTI MORE, from page 14

tackles and a good job getting north and
south," Austin said. "We didn't do a good
job tackling."
Austin said his team did a great job
getting off the field last week against
Vanderbilt, when the Gators allowed the
Commodores to convert only twice in 16
opportunities on third down.

"He did a great job running
through tackles and a good job
getting north and south. We didn't
do a good job tackling."
Teryl Austin
UF defensive coordinator


Behind Lattimore, the Gamecocks con-
verted eight of 16 attempts on third down
and dominated time of possession 40:46 to
19:14.
UF coach Urban Meyer didn't put all
of Lattimore's success on his defense, say-
ing the time of possession was too much
to overcome.
"We have to help those guys out," Mey-
er said of his offense.
In addition to South Carolina control-
ling the clock with its run game, Florida's
offense couldn't stay on the field and sus-


tain a drive to give the defense a much-
needed break.
The Gators went three-and-out on four
of their first six drives and didn't have
a drive of more than five plays until the
fourth quarter.


UF entered the third quarter with 67 to-
tal yards and three first downs.
Those offensive statistics, paired with
Florida's up-tempo offense, allowed South
Carolina to control the ball for most of the
game.

FOOTBALL, from page 1

Not the early game plan of giving Chris
Rainey the ball. Seven of the first 10 plays
went to Rainey, and he finished the first
half with 13 yards.
Florida was outgained 347 yards to 67
through three quarters and allowed South
Carolina to hold possession for a whop-


ping 40 minutes out of 60.
Afterward, Meyer was lost for words to
point out the problems.
"If I had an answer for that, we wouldn't
have struggled," he said.
The lone bright spot was Andre De-
bose's 99-yard touchdown return on the
opening kickoff, but that wound up as
more karma than a game-changer.

Debose sent the stadium into a frenzy,
but the Gamecocks rattled off 29 unan-
swered points to suck the drama out of the
game - a scene reminiscent of Florida's
2006 BCS Championship win, when Ohio
State lost 41-14 after returning the open-
ing kick for a score.
South Carolina leaned hard on fresh-
man running back Marcus Lattimore, who
turned 40 carries into 212 yards and three
touchdowns. His last score twisted the
knife in the Gators' back, when he was
stood up at the 5-yard line and pounded
his way into the end zone with the help of
his teammates to set the final margin.
"Basically, they did whatever they
wanted whenever they wanted," Black
said.
Gamecocks quarterback Stephen Garcia
was an efficient 15 of 22 for 156 yards and
added a rushing touchdown. It wasn't a
star performance, but he outplayed Brant-
ley by far.
Brantley entered the fourth quarter 8 of
16 with 46 yards and an interception, and
the low point came in the third, when his
pass was batted into the air and he caught
it from his back for a loss of 10 yards.
Fans booed both the play-calling and
Brantley's performance, and cheers rained
down when Jordan Reed was subbed in
for a few plays.
Reed wasn't flashy either, with 12 yards
rushing and 46 passing, but he did throw
a touchdown to Rainey, who took a pass
in the flat and dashed down the sideline
for a score.
The loss highlighted a lot of problem
areas for the Gators to address, but Meyer
said benching Brantley isn't an option.
"Jordan's not functional at everything
yet as a quarterback," Meyer said. "We
were going to be in the throwing game
trying to come back, and we were going to
try and win that game."

the NFL after this season.
That team had Percy Harvin.
This one has ... Deonte Thomp-

The future of Florida ....rl: II
is not as bright as it is made out
to be.
Unless the Gators manage
a miracle-like breakthrough in
the last three games of the year,
they will enter next season with
more question marks than an-
swers.
The quarterback position
that has accumulated 10 touch-
downs and nine interceptions
this season looks to have no so-
lution in sight.
Brantley will likely be the
team's quarterback next season
only because of a lack of depth
at the position.
He has yet to prove anything
in his first season at the helm.
Although, that was a hell of a
one-handed catch he made on
his back against South Caro-
lina.
And who will fill in for a de-
pleted Gators defense?
UF will lose senior defensive
tackles Lawrence Marsh, Bran-
don Antwine and Terron Sand-
ers, and this season's starting
defensive ends, Justin Trattou
and Duke Lemmens.
Safety Ahmad Black, the best
player on the team, in my opin-
ion, is the only member of Flor-
ida's secondary who is guar-
anteed to be gone. But Jenkins
could leave early for the NFL.
Starting outside linebackers
A.J. Jones and Brandon Hicks
are also playing in their last sea-
son as Gators.
Those are eight contributors
on the UF defense definitely
leaving, maybe nine if Jenkins
decides to forgo his senior sea-
son.
And on offense, the Gators
will lose four of their starting
offensive linemen.
But the real problem is that
all of the "skill players" are re-
turning except for running back
Emmanuel Moody.
The unit will feature most of
the same receivers and backs
who have contributed to this
season's stagnant offense.
It doesn't help that next
year's schedule features SEC
West matchups against Ala-
bama and Auburn, and road
games against LSU and South
Carolina.
So blame the coaches, play-
ers, refs, or whoever else you
can find to use as a scapegoat.
But the truth is that the
Gators have begun a new chap-
ter of football called the rebuild-

Gators open season with win against UNC-Wilmington


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org


The Gators may not have opened the
game the way they wanted to, but it's hard
to argue with the end result.
No. 9 Florida overcame a slow start to
win its 20th consecutive season opener as it
defeated UNC-Wilmington 77-60 on Friday
in the O'Connell Center.
The Gators trailed 11-6 after 4:55 but used
balanced scoring, strong rebounding and a
powerful press to make a 15-4 run en route
to the victory.
Each of the five starters scored at least
nine points, while sophomore Erik Murphy
chipped in 10 of his own off the bench.
"We had really good balance," said senior
Chandler Parsons, who led the way with 16
points. "That's going to be our whole thing
this year. We play unselfish and make the


extra pass."
The Gators had plenty of chances to score,
as they cashed in on 52 percent of their of-
fensive rebounding opportunities.
Senior Alex Tyus led the way on the
glass, grabbing four of the team's 17 offen-
sive boards and finishing with a team-high
seven rebounds.
"That was one of our tone points last
year, and we wanted to start it off strong this
year," Tyus said. "That's something that we
can control, just trying to kill the other team
on the offensive glass."
A third point that helped Florida to vic-
tory was a potent press defense led by fresh-
man Scottie Wilbekin, who recorded four
steals in 17 minutes.
Wilbekin rotated with Parsons, sopho-
more Kenny Boynton and junior Erving
Walker at the guard spots, :II.. ''o, the
Gators to wear down a shallow Seahawks
backcourt.


UF's 12 steals were a refreshing change
from the second half of the team's final ex-
hibition game, when coach Billy Donovan
noticed a lack of intensity.
"Coach got onto us this week in practice
about the press," Wilbekin said. "We were
all trying to get out there and work hard
in the press and frustrate
them."
While the Gators suc-
cessfully forced 20 turn-
overs, they also recorded
15 of their own.
Florida was often guilty
of attempting ill-advised
Parsons home-run passes, and its
guards occasionally tried
to push the ball up the floor too quickly.
"I think we rushed a little bit offensively
in the first half, certainly the first 10 min-
utes," Donovan said.
Another area in which the Gators contin-


ued to struggle was 3-point shooting, as the
team shot just 6 of 19 in the game.
Boynton cooled down significantly after
shooting 8 of 15 from beyond the arc in the
exhibition season, going 0 for 6 from down-
town against UNCW.
Walker, on the other hand, rebounded
from a preseason in which he shot just 1 of
10 from distance by opening the year with a
3-for-5 performance.
Despite his players' streaky shooting,
Donovan hasn't asked them to limit their at-
tempts.
"We haven't been a prolific scoring team
and a knock-down jump-shooting team, but
I try to give them freedom because I do think
when you do that they can have a game
where they make 12,13,14 threes," Donovan
said. "We can't let a lack of knocking down
3-point shots discourage us as a team."
The Gators will host No. 4 Ohio State on
Tuesday.

All offseason, the coaches and
players have talked about bring-
ing a new brand of Gators basket-
ball to Gainesville.
That new look was visible at
times in Saturday's 77-67 vic-
tory over visiting UCF in the first
round of the Preseason Women's
NIT.
After falling behind 9-1 to start
the game, the Gators used an at-
tacking defense to take control.
On a night when the team tied the
school record for blocks with 14, it
was the defense that set the tone
and helped the Gators recover

"The good thing about having a
lot of turnovers and still being able
to have a win is that they're cor-
rectable, they're in your control,"
coach Amanda Butler said. "A lot
of our turnovers were things we
did to ourselves. When you're in

have a better chance at correcting
them."
The Gators did just that. Fans

four rebounds in a nearly mistake-

the first true freshman to start a
home opener since 2002, and she
didn't disappoint. Lewis stuffed

and a steal.

Gators and extended the lead back

have put in since June, it was time
to go out there and have some
fun," Lewis said.
With the win, UF advances to
the second round of the NIT and
will take on Charlotte tonight at 7
in the O'Connell Center.

By MARISSA PRIETO and KRISTEN KINGAlligator Contributing Writers Since the Shands Arts in Medicine program started Art in Motion, a program for Parkinson’s disease patients, Kathy Castle has been par ticipating in the classes every week making mosaics, collages and other crafts. Castle was just one of the artists who proudly displayed Shands Arts and Health Festival. About 75 Shands patients and festival-goers participated in activities such as T-shirt painting, Zumba and yoga classes. Events like this, Castle said, are good ways for Parkinson’s disease patients and other patients to get out of the house or hospital room and do something fun that allows them to mingle with others. “Art can make a huge difference in the healing environment and the hospital experience,” said Alie Wickham, program assistant for Shands Arts in Medicine. “We need people to be inand develop,” she said. Shands Arts in Medicine was started in 1990 and cur rently works with Shands at UF, the Shands Cancer Hospital and surrounding clinics. The program helps to facilitate creative art activities and bring the arts to patients in local hospitals, according to Wickham. The program has various classes available for patients in areas such as dance, music, literary arts and visual arts. Chip Colley, 54, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease nearly two years ago. Now, he’s an artist within Shands Arts in Medicine program. “I couldn’t draw until I got Parkinson’s,” Colley said. “I really started enjoying art.” The festival was held primarily to raise awareness about arts and health and to support the community, Wickham said. “Art is not an alternative to the health care that Shands provides,” Wickham said. “It is a complement. Patients need to heal spiritually along with physically, and art can play a key role in that.” Shands patients get artsy4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010Matt Riva / AlligatorCynthia Conte, 3, paints a T-shirt Sunday afternoon at the 2010 Arts and Health Festival at the UF Shands Cancer Center. GATOR NATIONBy ALEXANDER KLAUSNERAlligator Writer At Florida State University’s law school, deep within the enemy’s camp, there occasionally hangs a sign that says, “Work ‘Em Silly, Gators.” This icon of The Swamp, painted on a pillowcase, is hung by the Litigators, a student-run organization within FSU’s law school that provides a home away from home for the numerous UF graduate students that attend the college. Sometimes, it serves as a recruitment tool during times when prospective students come and visit the school, said president Kim Siomkos, who, like most Litigators, is a UF graduate. The group wants Gainesville students to know that despite going to a rival school, there is a group of people who share a common bond — being a Gator. “Gainesville will always be my home,” Siomkos said. “So anything I can do to remind me of being there is something that I want to get involved in.” The group primarily functions as a social group and a way for students from Gainesville to network with other law students with UF undergraduate degrees who found their way up north to Tallahassee. They host game-day tailgates and game-watching parties, hold monthly meetings, go to Gator baseball games when they play FSU and also host various events like beer tastings with the Capital Area Gator Club. One of the group’s biggest events is their UF-FSU rivalry week, which was hosted last week so as not to coincide with exams. “We try to have it in early November before the studying for exams gets too overwhelming or too hectic so people can still par ticipate and have a good time,” said treasurer Brett Miller. During the week, the stairwell of the school is decorated on one side with orange and blue and the other side in garnet and gold, complete with the slogans, “If you’re not a Gator, then you’re Gator bait,” and “Gator haters.” The week also includes a powderpuff game, a canned food drive and a Mr. FSU pageant. The school’s administration seems pleased with the group, even though it is dedicated to proving its loyalty to a rival school. “They’re very, very helpful to our school,” said Don Weidner, the dean of FSU College of Law. Student Body, and to be sure, we very actively recruit undergraduate UF students, and they’re very active in that effort.” One of the reasons Weidner said a organization like Litigators is helpful is because of the sheer volume of UF graduates that the college receives. In two out of the last three incoming classes of law students, UF graduates have outnumbered the graduates from every other university, including FSU. Siomkos said she enjoys having the backing of the administration. “This is one of the selling points for me for FSU Law,” she said, “the fact that an entire faculty and administration can get behind us and realize we’re not here to be an annoyance, we’re here to be an asset.”Alumni take Gator Nation into enemy territory at FSU “Gainesville will always be my home.”Kim Siomkos UF graduate and litigator TRENDS SHOW FERTILITY IS DROPPING IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES.By ERIC HENELYAlligator Contributing Writer A study released last week shows that high heat from laptops could lead to a shortage of power below the belt for men. The study, which was published online in the journal Fertility and Sterility, shows there might be a potential link between decreased fertility for men and heat from laptops. Leg position is a primary factor, said Dr. Denis Healey, a urologist at Bay Medical Center in Panama City who completed his residency at UF. He believes that laptop trays, which are designed to cool the bottom of a laptop, are not as effective as simply keeping an open-leg position. It’s one of the most heat-sensitive areas of the body, and just a few degrees of temperature change can profoundly affect performance, he said. “I believe that there is going to be a lot more fertility problems in the future as a result of laptop usage,” Healey said. After avoiding heat for six months to a year, sperm counts can increase back to normal. However, Healey warned that the longer the period of heat exposure, the more permanent the damage becomes. Under a microscope, he said that he can easily tell which sperm have been damaged by heat. “The sperm have blown-up heads. A lot of them will either have no tails or very short tails. It’s very noticeable,” he said. Dr. Johannes Vieweg, chairman of the Department of Urology at UF, said the study is part of a larger effort to determine why fertility rates are dropping in developed countries. There are alarming trends, particularly in Europe, that suggest that infertility is becoming more pronounced, he said. Both doctors agree on the importance of prevention and a simple self-examination that can detect many testicular and fertility problems. If men do notice changes, Vieweg recommends that they go to the doctor without being ashamed. “Urology isn’t something that naturally calls to you,” Healey said. “If we can prevent this from becoming a Laptop heat may cause reversible male infertility Public Health They showed off art Sun.Vieweg

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 5 THE GOAL IS TO MAKE STUDENTS AWARE OF GLOBAL ISSUES.By GRETCHEN GORDINAlligator Contributing Writer UF students and faculty will have the international education and exchange this week. Mabel Cardec, outreach coordinator for the UF International Center, said the events during International Education Week are offered at UF to make people aware of the importance of global issues. “The Gator Nation is everywhere around the world — not just on campus or in Gainesville,” Cardec said. “We need students in higher education to realize this to prepare for their future careers.” This year’s theme, “Making Global Connections,” will highlight opportunities available for international engagement on campus and around the world. The kick-off event is today at 10:15 a.m. with a brief opening ceremony in the Hub highlighting the week’s activities with a mini-concert featuring UF’s African choir. The UF College of Education is also hosting an event today at 12:30 p.m. in Norman Hall with international food and panels of students and faculty about how their international experiences have affected their work. Dean Rockwell, a UFIC study abroad adviser, said students who study abroad can discover so much by learning in a different environment. “Your ability to learn is amazing when you’re abroad,” Rockwell said. “Learning customs from new people that speak a different language presents a good opportunity to grow as a person.” On Friday, UFIC will host “NGO/PVO Day: Extending International Collaboration and Networking” from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Reitz Union Auditorium and Grand Ballroom Salon A and E. “We have so many international students here so it’s nice to have events that will interest those students and show how internationally diverse UF is,” he said.International week to showcase opportunities abroadBy MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Contributing Writer On a cloudless night, Earthlings gathered to get a closer look at the universe. More than 900 people attended Starry Night, an annual public stargazing event, on Friday to peer through telescopes and peruse astronomy exhibits at the Florida Museum of Natural History. “There’s something about the grandeur of the sky that gets people excited,” said Vicki Sarajedini, an associate professor of astronomy and one of the event planners. There were telescopes that could focus on Jupiter so well that viewers could see the four Galilean moons next to the planet.

And Shuler knows he can’t win. Adding he doesn’t have the votes to beat the powerhouse that is Pelosi, Shuler’s challenge acts more as a warning to cial welfare and health care. And after a “shellacking” in the midterm elections, Democrats don’t need in-party quarreling. Although Shuler might have good intentions to bring his party a little to the right to appease more voters come 2012, Shuler is only further segmenting his already-injured party. We’re just looking forward to Pelosi hopefully singing her own rendition of Beyonce’s “To the left, to the left.”Graphic designCigarettes are getting graphic. After an announcement Wednesday, the Food and Drug Administration major change to cigarette packaging in more than 25 years by requiring cigarette companies to include graphic warnings above the brand name of each box of cigarettes. A mere warning from the Surgeon General admonishing smokers not to light up while pregnant or a, “Hey, you might get cancer,” warning isn’t cutting it anymore for the FDA. suitable-for-picture-books graphics will display images ranging from decaying teeth to a corpse in an attempt to persuade smokers to put down the pack for good. And when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates smokers cost America $193 billion annually in lost productivity and health care costs, we couldn’t be happier with the extra efforts the FDA is making to put an end to this deadly habit that holds the dubious title as the No. 1 cause of preventable death in America. But, at the same time, we realize smokers are more than aware of the dangers associated with lighting up. Smokers know each time they choose to smoke they cut minute after minute off their lives. Smokers have seen the images of tar-black, tobacco-tainted lungs. So, although we fully support the graphic warning labels or any other sensible measure to prevent deaths from tobacco abuse, we realize smokers are still going to smoke. And that’s a shame.Olbermann should look to Fox for exampleSo apparently Keith Olbermann supports Democrats. Fancy that. A little more than a week ago, the MSNBC talkshow host was suspended because he violated NBC guidelines about giving campaign donations. The punishment all too well in Gainesville. Right, Chris Rainey? Fortunately for Olbermann, the reaction of bleeding what would happen to MSNBC ratings without him, resulted in his suspension lasting for a horrifyingly anxietyinvoking two business days. You can’t really blame Olbermann’s bosses, though. Technically, he did break the rule by donating the maximum legal amount to three Democrat candidates. But did he really break the spirit of the rule? The rule was designed to protect the journalistic integrity of those working for NBC’s non-biased hard-news shows. That makes sense, and it’s actually a pretty good rule that exists for all The New York Times and The Washington Post journalists. But is anyone not dying from a bleeding heart really going to sit there and tell me “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” is a non-biased, hard-news show? That same person would also probably be quick to tell me Glenn Beck hands out hugs to Democrats walking down the street. Truth is we all know where Olbermann’s loyalties lie, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you don’t like his opinions, change the channel to Fox News. But as the face of an opinionated show, should he really be held accountable to the same rules as the journalists who work for the hard-news shows of NBC? There is precedent for news companies allowing its hosts to donate money. In fact, all we have to do is look to Olbermann’s favorite conversaFox News does, in fact, allow its employees to donate to campaign funds, a rule its hosts take advantage of quite often. This past campaign cycle Fox’s parent company, News Corp., dished out $1.25 million in campaign donations. Of course, Olbermann did publicly make fun of Fox for that, which is all-too-ironic now. There is another way of looking at this, though. The amount of face time opinionated shows give candidates $2,400 Olbermann was legally allowed to donate. On shows like “Countdown,” you don’t see many non-liberal faces very often, if ever. Meaning, all of the time they allocate on their shows to doing interviews is basically one long, free advertisement for the candidates. So, in that case, everyone hosting an opinionated show is donating to a campaign by means of saving them money. If MSNBC took that route, it’d be running a lot of reruns during prime time. The real question here is why doesn’t MSNBC just remove the rule and take the Fox approach? For once, sur prisingly, I think Fox got something right. How does it make any sense to punish a TV broadcast journalist for giving contributions when, in reality, he or she is doing the same thing every time he or she has a guest on his or her show? Somehow, though, I don’t think Olbermann will admit Fox got this one right — at least not in as many words. Chris Dodsonletters@alligator.org

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorIsrael’s relationship with U.S. vital Some political commentators argue Israel is a strategic liability to the foreign policy interests of the United States and or cutting ties with Israel. Although the U.S.-Israel alliance, just like any alliance, isn’t perfect, the commonalities and intensive cooperation between Israel and the U.S. make Israel an indispensable American ally. Common values ensure the foundation for the unbreakable bond between Israel and the U.S.; Israel is the only functioning democracy in a part of the world that contains mostly autocratic regimes susceptible to radical coups at any time. Israel is the only country in the Middle East that grants full rights to women, religious minorities and gay people and protects free speech and freedom of the press. As a beacon for democracy and human rights in the Middle East, Israel is the only nation in the region with which support for the U.S. is guaranteed. This guaranteed support remains critical as Israel and the U.S. confront common enemies. The U.S. receives a substantial bargain annually by supplying Israel with secuterrorism and America’s enemies without forcing the U.S. to commit troops on the ground. Israel’s location allows it to serve as a strategic American outpost in a region vital to America’s energy considerations and foreign policy interests. In addition to providing bases for the U.S. military to refuel planes and restock ships, Israel has shared vital intelligence with the U.S. Israel is the U.S.’ strongest ally in addressing the threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons capability. Israel frequently contributes its innovative prowess and cutting-edge technologies to the U.S. military in the form of life-saving equipment, including the emer gency bandage and armor-plated tanks. Israel ultimately provides an irreplaceable wealth of resources and knowledge for America’s strategic interests in the Middle East. While detractors argue Israel negatively affects America’s relationship with the Arab world, America’s historically strong relations with several key Arab governments render that argument somewhat inaccurate. Additionally, many of those in the Middle East who despise Israel do so because they perceive Israel as an extension of America. This is clearly evident at antiIsrael demonstrations, where American other and demonstrators refer to America as the “Big Satan” and Israel as the “Little Satan.” I encourage every student at UF to attend the Israel Week events sponsored by the Jewish Student Union because Israel is beyond a Jewish cause; supporting Israel is American. For more information on Israel Week, visit the Jewish Student Union’s Facebook group. Micah Lutkowitz UF student We all have an important part to play in sustainabilityI’d like to thank Chris Marth for the Friday letter highlighting a topic important to campus sustainability that both staff and students play a part in improving. Almost 100 percent of UF’s irrigation water is reclaimed from our on-campus wastewater treatment facility. The requirement to water landscapes before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m.and only twice a week applies to potable water resources. Our storage capacity for treated water at UF is surpassed by our generation of water that needs to be treated. It’s an unfortunate reality that we can and sometimes need to irrigate at all times of the day and night to distribute the reclaimed water. Much of the sustainability concern is on the front end of this equation. Our laboratories and building users do not always treat water as a precious commodity. and Safety staff are trying to work with laboratory users and building managers on campus to install water-saving devices and implement behaviors that save waspend funds on water conservation meaOne example of an effort being made for water conservation at UF is the program designed by the department of housing. The water conservation campaign helps students understand the importance of conserving water, while providing them unique tools and resources like shower timers to help make it an engaging learning process. about sprinklers spraying sidewalks rather than grass, the best way to resolve this or any problem with campus infrastructure is the problem. If you spot an irrigation-related problem or notice sprinkler systems running for an excessive amount of time, please contact it at 352-392-1121. We all have an important part to play in helping our university and campus become more sustainable. Ashley Pennington Gator Nation glory days long gonesive scheme weren’t enough, the Gators football team managed to bump itself off the road to the Southeastern Conference championship Saturday, losing against the South Carolina Gamecocks 36 to 14. tory, defeated the Gators in The Swamp and crushed any hopes of a Gator SEC championship title. A failure to plan is a plan to fail but apparently, Steve Addazio, UF offensive coordinator, didn’t get the memo. The new offensive scheme, led with a quarterback and two pseudo-quarter backs, proved to be a massive failure and left Gator fans wondering, “Who is our quarterback, and what are they doing?” Apparently, variety is not a big enough factor to win football games. Neither is a man wide receiver, returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, but what happened next surprised everyone. Ahmad Black and cornerback Janoris Jenkins picked up most of the slack for the defense in the second half of the game, but they alone were not enough to make a game-changing impact for the already struggling Gators on their way to failure. What is obvious is that something needs to change. The Gators need to use our offensive weapons more effectively and stop relying on a quarterback-running back scheme because we clearly don’t have it down. house are long gone, and the earlier the coaches and coordinators accept it, the better. Use the advantages of the wide receivers’ and running backs’ speed and pair it with the versatility and size of the tight ends and we could be unstoppable. Gators, we have to do better. Embracing the new shape of the Gator cruiting class effectively are the next challenges for the team to overcome. Of course, SEC title hopes are a thing of the past, but we can improve from here and regain some of that lost dignity, pride and respect for Gator Nation football. Jasmine Earls UF studentDear Gator Nation, You are some of the worst fans on the planet. Whenever your team is winning you cheer your hearts out, but when we’re not doing so well you don’t cheer. When the team makes plays you don’t agree with you actually start to jeer the team. Do you seriously think that’s going to make them play better? A good number of people also left before the end of the third quarter. We still could have caught up at that time. Some of you don’t live up to the words, “In all kinds of weather we all stick together for F-L-O-R-I-D-A.” You should be ashamed you only support your team when we’re winning and not at all times. The Gators are not invincible, like every other team. We had bad times in the past and will have bad times again. I know I will still cheer no matter how our team is doing. And to everyone who stayed the whole game and cheered no matter how down we were, I thank you whole-heartedly. Go Gators! Danielle Drennan UF student

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 Participants in this year’s event brought in about $65,000“You never think this is going to happen to you,” she said. “I did everything by the book and still ended up with a premature baby.” According to March of Dimes statistics, one out of eight babies is born preterm. Gators March for Babies was created so college students, teachers and alumni could get involved with a growing epidemic. The event was a 5k walk/run through the UF campus with “spirit stations” along the way with giveaways and free cupcakes, popcorn and brownies. Participants who made it to the end walked under an arch of purple and white balloons, greeted by the UF band, Dazzlers and the UF gymnastics team. Betsy Trent, executive director of March of Dimes in North Central Florida, said this year brought in about $65,000 to fund various programs and grants, like smoking cessation for mothers and support for families with prematurity issues. She said brain development is crucial in the last few weeks of pregnancy, and mothers should try to go full term if possible. A recent study funded by the March of Dimes found that some mothers and doctors choose to induce labor and have Caesarean sections out of convenience and not of necessity. Cecelia Ribuffo knows love and loss all too well. She always wanted a baby girl. When she was little, she would cradle her favorite doll and imagine what it would be like to hold her own child in her arms. In college, she got pregnant and she wanted. It wasn’t so. Early pregnancy was marred by constant cramping. And she wasn’t gaining weight. She knew something was wrong. At tors said she was “anxious.” Ribuffo, in constant pain, felt like her baby was having seizures inside of her. When they cut Annabelle out she weighed only 2 pounds. “I felt so sorry for her. You expect your little Gerber baby,” she said. “Instead you have a child that’s holding on for dear life.” The situation wasn’t ideal, but the Ribuffos were a family. However, before the shutter clicked for a family photo by the incubator, the doctor walked in with bad news. Annabelle’s brain was bleeding. Doctors tried an experimental procedure that involved burning a hole into her brain. It didn’t work. They tried a brain shunt to decrease swelling. Through the ordeal, Ribuffo tried toput on a brave face, but she was tortured. Finally, Annabelle stabilized and the Ribuffos could breathe. They registered at Babies”R”Us and took a trip to Walt Disney World. When they got back, they were on a high, only to be greeted by bad news. Annabelle was fussy and didn’t want to be held. Her head started growing again. She had hydrocephalus, a It can be deadly, moreso for infants. An MRI of Annabelle’s brain showed that there was barely any layer of red. She was brain dead. Annabelle would never know who she was, she’d never know her parents, she’d never know Santa fear, all the surgeries and pain, all the hope you could squeeze out of a human being, it was over. Even though she suffered an unspeakable loss, Ribuffo wants others to know this could happen to them. And even though she probably can’t carry another baby, her sister-in-law offered to be a surrogate mother. They started the process last week. BABIES, from page 1Wagner: UPD is focusing less on ticketing, more on preventing rule-breakinghave to make yourself big, basically make yourself a car,” he said. An example of such a situation would be when a biker intends to make a left turn. In those instances, a cyclist should enter into the left vehicle lane and use the appropriate hand signals. Wagner said that in addition to forgetting to use these signals, many cyclists fail to stop at red lights. Another concern that has raised safety issues involves headsets. Florida law says people can’t operate a vehicle — including a bicycle — while wearing a headset, headphone or any other listening device besides a hearing aid, according to Florida Bicycle Laws. Bike riders also commonly disregard the ordinance that requires them to ride with lights at night. Wagner said this requirement is not only to help riders see while riding, but also to make cyclists more visible to other vehicles. Harcha understands how important it is for bikers to practice “defensive riding.” Crowded bike lanes raise a need for bikers to be aware of other riders. Harcha said bikers also have to be aware of cars. “You gotta watch out for cars because cars won’t watch out for you,” he said. he was in a bike accident during the 2009 spring semester. A driver didn’t see him as he was crossing Gale Lemerand Drive and the air. Harcha, who woke up in the hospital with a fractured left temporal bone and wrist, said he was not wearing a helmet. After the accident, he said he became much more serious He now considers wearing a helmet “the most important thing you can do” while riding a bike. Wagner said a high percentage of bike accident injuries are head injuries. Harcha learned this the hard way. “If you fall over, your head is the farthest thing from the ground,” he said. Sara Drumm, a sophomore journalism major at UF, said she sees bicycle accidents on campus all the time. After deciding she didn’t feel safe riding on campus last year, she left her bike on campus hoping that it would be picked up by UPD at the end of the year. “Watching the bikers on campus makes me feel like I would probably crash into someone and die,” she said. Wagner said UPD is focusing less on ticketing students who are breaking rules and more on preventing the rules from being UPD gives presentations at Freshman Preview Orientation weekends as well as at the meetings of different campus organizations. These presentations highlight the importance of bicycle safety to student cyclists and remind them of the laws. The presentations are also meant to inform students of the potential dangers involved with riding bicycles. There’s a gray area, however. Bikers are allowed in some areas that cars are not, and many of these areas are on campus. Adam Butler, a junior at UF, said that a lot of bike safety should be second nature for riders. “You need to use common sense and not run over people,” he said. BIKE, from page 1AROUND GAINESVILLEBy ESTEE BECKAlligator Contributing Writer Gainesville middle school students, some of whom have never been outside of central Florida, are making connections across the world. Three middle schools in Gainesville are part of a pen pal program, allowing students to communicate with other students their own age in South Africa. It started with Science Partners in Inquiry-based Collaborative Education, a project funded by the National Science Foundation for UF graduate students of various studies. SPICE, which pairs a graduate student with a participating teacher at one of six Alachua County schools, aims to create hands-on, inquiry-based lessons or activities for students to teach ecosystem health. The NSF awarded SPICE with a onetime grant to travel to South Africa for research purposes and to visit South African schools. But a three-week trip in the summer of 2009 was not enough for Darina Palacio. “We wanted to give back and continue the relationship,” said Palacio, a secondyear environmental engineering graduate student. Palacio, who does her SPICE activities at Howard W. Bishop Middle School, spear headed the pen pal project. About 100 students there, along with about 100 at Lincoln Middle School and 100 at A.L. Mebane Middle School, wrote letters to 130 students in South Africa at Mandeni Primary School in February, Palacio said. South African students responded to the letters in June, according to May Steward, a seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Middle School. The last scheduled delivery of the international letters was Friday to Steward’s students. Steward, who has been working with UF’s SPICE for six years, said the pen pal project has changed her students’ perspectives of the world. “They see that the kids aren’t that differ ent from them,” Steward said. The letters, delivered in giant pink and orange envelopes, were decorated with colorful notes, pictures, drawings and magazine cutouts. Messages read, “I love you,” “friends forever” and “God may bless you,” along with facts about each student’s life. Palacio said SPICE also held a school supplies drive from January to February and sent two large suitcases full of supplies to Mandeni. Mandeni was able to start new art classes because of the supply delivery. SPICE will not continue to coordinate letter deliveries, but students are highly encouraged to keep contact. “They’re learning things they never thought they would,” Steward said of her students. “They are ecstatic.”Middle schoolers write to South African pen pals Public Safety “They’re learning things they never thought they would.”May Steward Seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Middle SchoolMeyer Dana Burke / Alligator StaffUF graduate student Cecelia Ribuffo and her husband, Michael Ribuffo, pose on Turlington Plaza on Sunday.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 UF BASKETBALLBy GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writergluca@alligator.org The Gators may not have opened the game the way they wanted to, but it’s hard to argue with the end result. No. 9 Florida overcame a slow start to win its 20th consecutive season opener as it defeated UNC-Wilmington 77-60 on Friday in the O’Connell Center. The Gators trailed 11-6 after 4:55 but used balanced scoring, strong rebounding and a powerful press to make a 15-4 run en route to the victory. nine points, while sophomore Erik Murphy chipped in 10 of his own off the bench. “We had really good balance,” said senior Chandler Parsons, who led the way with 16 points. “That’s going to be our whole thing extra pass.” The Gators had plenty of chances to score, as they cashed in on 52 percent of their offensive rebounding opportunities. Senior Alex Tyus led the way on the glass, grabbing four of the team’s 17 offenseven rebounds. “That was one of our tone points last year, and we wanted to start it off strong this year,” Tyus said. “That’s something that we can control, just trying to kill the other team on the offensive glass.” A third point that helped Florida to victory was a potent press defense led by freshman Scottie Wilbekin, who recorded four steals in 17 minutes. Wilbekin rotated with Parsons, sophomore Kenny Boynton and junior Erving Walker at the guard spots, allowing the Gators to wear down a shallow Seahawks backcourt. UF’s 12 steals were a refreshing change hibition game, when coach Billy Donovan noticed a lack of intensity. “Coach got onto us this week in practice about the press,” Wilbekin said. “We were all trying to get out there and work hard in the press and frustrate them.” While the Gators successfully forced 20 turnovers, they also recorded 15 of their own. Florida was often guilty of attempting ill-advised home-run passes, and its guards occasionally tried “I think we rushed a little bit offensively utes,” Donovan said. Another area in which the Gators continued to struggle was 3-point shooting, as the team shot just 6 of 19 in the game. shooting 8 of 15 from beyond the arc in the exhibition season, going 0 for 6 from downtown against UNCW. Walker, on the other hand, rebounded from a preseason in which he shot just 1 of 10 from distance by opening the year with a 3-for-5 performance. Despite his players’ streaky shooting, Donovan hasn’t asked them to limit their attempts. and a knock-down jump-shooting team, but I try to give them freedom because I do think when you do that they can have a game where they make 12, 13, 14 threes,” Donovan said. “We can’t let a lack of knocking down 3-point shots discourage us as a team.” The Gators will host No. 4 Ohio State on Tuesday.Gators open season with win against UNC-WilmingtonBy MATT WATTSAlligator Writer All offseason, the coaches and players have talked about bringing a new brand of Gators basketball to Gainesville. That new look was visible at times in Saturday’s 77-67 vicround of the Preseason Women’s NIT. After falling behind 9-1 to start the game, the Gators used an attacking defense to take control. On a night when the team tied the school record for blocks with 14, it was the defense that set the tone and helped the Gators recover “The good thing about having a lot of turnovers and still being able to have a win is that they’re cor rectable, they’re in your control,” coach Amanda Butler said. “A lot of our turnovers were things we did to ourselves. When you’re in charge of your own mistakes, you have a better chance at correcting them.” The Gators did just that. Fans began to see the up-tempo style Butler wants to use during a 16-3 helping Florida build a 10-point lead. UF came out of halftime much the same, extending its lead to 22 points. “When we ran away from them that was the tempo we needed, defensively and offensively,” Butler said. Much of the spark came from the guard duo of Jaterra Bonds and Lanita Bar tley. Bonds came off the bench to lead the Gators with 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting in a teamhigh 29 minutes of action. Bartley used her aggressive play to grab four steals and lead the Gators on multiple fast-break scoring oppor tunities. The two brought the same intensity to the offensive end, driving to the basket and forcing UCF to defend in the paint as well as outside. what I do,” Bartley said of her four steals. “I wanted to set the tempo and get my team involved and just run.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 -SOUTH CAROLINA CLINCHED THE SEC EAST WITH THE WIN. By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer rrm ccall@alligator org The Gators threw a blue-out, and the Gamecocks blew out their title hopes. Florida entered The Swamp with a revived offense and fan base Saturday night, but by the fourth quarter, UF had flat-lined and thousands of blue-clad supporters were on their way home. No. 22 South Carolina dealt No. 24 UF a crushing 36-14 defeat in front of 90,855, ending the Gators' hopes of a season-salvaging trip to the Southeastern Conference Championship. Now, the only way Florida is going to Atlanta is if it's offered a bid to the Chick-fil-A Bowl. With their goal of an SEC title gone, the Gators will have to find other motivation for their last two games, such as sending the senior class out with wins against Appalachian State and Florida State. "I'm not a quitter," safety AhS. CAROLINA 36 % e FLORIDA 14 SEC-ond fiddle mad Black said. "I don't think anybody on our team is a quitter. We'll stick together and fight through it." Saturday's game had all the hype of a title bout, with UF coach Urban Meyer saying he wanted it "to go down in the books." It did, but in the wrong book. mr rilSteve Spurrier, center, is carried on to the field by his players after defeating Florida to clinch the SEC East for the first time as South Carolina's coach. The Gamecocks locked down the SEC East for the first time in school history and got their firstever win in Gainesville. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier notched his first victory at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium from the visiting sideline, snapping Florida's streak of 16 straight wins against division foes. It was the Gators' worst home defeat since LSU beat them 36-7 in 2002, and it handed them three straight losses in The Swamp for the first time since 1986. "Our guys were ready for this week. They gave us everything they had in practice, and obviously, it's a severe letdown," Meyer said. Florida came into the game with a revamped strategy: a threequarterback system that was supposed to give the Gators plenty of options to fix a struggling offense. But nothing worked. Not John Brantley's arm against the SEC's worst pass defense. He totaled 46 yards and an interception through three quarters, rarely taking a shot downfield. Not the three-man weave at quarterback, which wasn't used often or effectively.

These rankings, which appeared in an article from the Bradenton Herald, may be a result of the fact that Florida is such a bikefriendly state, said UPD Lt. Robert Wagner. "More people on bikes statistically means more accidents," he said. Most bicycle accidents that UPD encounters involve a car, but these are just reported incidents. Wagner said that many minor incidents go unreported on campus. The main cause for such a high number of accidents on UF's campus is students' lack of concern for safety laws, Wagner said. By law, cyclists are considered vehicles while on the road and therefore must follow all car laws.

He stole about $95 and a diamond earring worth $1,200 from Michael Rennold Madrazo. He had arranged to meet Madrazo, and when he did he struck him on the face with a hard object, knocking him to the ground. Wims then continued to hit the victim on the face. A witness told him to stop and stayed with the victim until an ambulance arrived. Officers found 3.4 grams of marijuana in his pocket.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 SANTA FE COLLEGE 1,000 honor veterans at Santa Fe's Liberty Fest By TYLER COLE and JERRY BRUNO Alligator Contributing Writers For Master Sgt. Jim Yakubsin, coming home from the Vietnam War wasn't easy. "Vietnam was televised, and many people looked at us weird when we got back because of the images they saw on TV," he said. But on Sunday at the first-annual All American Liberty Fest, Yakubsin felt like his service was appreciated. "The Vietnam guys made me feel what I did was right," he said. About 1,000 people came together at Santa Fe College to honor veterans, ranging from WWII to Iraq, at the festival. The event was sponsored by Santa Fe's Collegiate Veterans Society and replaced the Bikers on Parade event that had been held for the past nine years. All of the proceeds raised would benefit the Gainesville Fisher House Foundation, according to Patti Fabiani, executive director of the foundation. The foundation is raising money to build a house on the grounds of the veterans hospital to serve veterans and their families while they are being treated for surgery and serious illness, Fabiani said. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2011. "Being that it's our first year, I'm not sure how much we will raise, but having young kids learning more about what our veterans do for our country is really important," Sandra Torres-Pintos, an event coordinator, said. There were 18 veteran organizations, ranging from the Iwo Trio to the Korean War Veteran Association. Each of these organizations had representatives that spoke about their experiences in combat or how they support the veteran community in Alachua County. Warrant Officer Clif J. Cormier served in the 3rd marine division in the battle of Iwo Jima in 1945. Cormier, who is 90 years old, said the event was special to him because it helps keep the memories alive. "I get to share my experience of 65 years ago to anyone that asks," he said. Cormier, along with his two friends who served in the 4th and 5th marine divisions, founded Iwo The Gator Guard Drill Team performs a step pattern routine at the All American Liberty Fest on Sunday at Santa Fe College. The event was held to honor veterans ranging from WWII to Iraq. Trio so people can learn and discuss the Battle of Iwo Jima and other major battles of WWII. Jackson Sasser, president of SFC, said that the liberty festival was one of the most important events the college has ever been involved with. "It's events like these that are the real treasures of our community," he said. Joe Galloway, co-author of "We Were Soldiers Once. .And Young," which was made into a film starring Mel Gibson in 2002, was a guest speaker. During his speech, he expressed his gratitude toward veterans and spoke about his experience as a reporter in the Vietnam War. "I'm here to say thank you, a simple thank you to the men and women who let nightmares erupt their sleep," Galloway said. "I owe you my life, some of you literally. I can never pay for that, but I can try." After Galloway's speech, Sasser dedicated The Liberty Oak, a memorial on SFC's campus, to all the veterans in attendance at the festival. He also recognized several veterans, including some who earned the Purple Heart for their acts of service. Sasser said the festival will be an annual event and that the outcome for its first year was inspiring. "I don't want to know anyone who doesn't respect the warrior," Sasser said. "These are the people I respect those who fight and sacrifice their lives for our country."

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 Laptop heat may cause reversible male infertility 0 TRENDS SHOW FERTILITY IS DROPPING IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. By ERIC HENELY Alligator Contributing Writer A study released last week shows that high heat from laptops could lead to a shortage of power below the belt for men. The study, which was published online in the journal Fertility and Sterility, shows there might be a potential link between decreased fertility for men and heat from laptops. Leg position is a primary factor, said Dr. Denis Healey, a urologist at Bay Medical Center in Panama City who completed his residency at UF. He believes that laptop trays, which are designed to cool the bottom of a laptop, are not as effective as simply keeping an open-leg position. It's one of the most heat-sensitive areas of the body, and just a few degrees of temperature change can profoundly affect performance, he said. "I believe that there is going to be a lot more fertility problems in the future as a result of laptop usage," Healey said. After avoiding heat for six months to a year, sperm counts can increase back to normal. Viewed However, Healey warned that the longer the period of heat exposure, the more permanent the damage becomes. Under a microscope, he said that he can easily tell which sperm have been damaged by heat. "The sperm have blown-up heads. A lot of them will either have no tails or very short tails. It's very noticeable," he said. Dr. Johannes Vieweg, chairman of the Department of Urology at UF, said the study is part of a larger effort to determine why fertility rates are dropping in developed countries. There are alarming trends, particularly in Europe, that suggest that infertility is becoming more pronounced, he said. Both doctors agree on the importance of prevention and a simple self-examination that can detect many testicular and fertility problems. If men do notice changes, Vieweg recommends that they go to the doctor without being ashamed. "Urology isn't something that naturally calls to you," Healey said. "If we can prevent this from becoming a problem, everyone benefits." Shands patients get artsy They showed off art Sun. By MARISSA PRIETO and KRISTEN KING Alligator Contributing Writers Since the Shands Arts in Medicine program started Art in Motion, a program for Parkinson's disease patients, Kathy Castle has been participating in the classes every week making mosaics, collages and other crafts. Castle was just one of the artists who proudly displayed their work Sunday at the first Shands Arts and Health Festival. About 75 Shands patients and festival-goers participated in activities such as T-shirt Matt Riva /Alligator Cynthia Conte, 3, paints a T-shirt Sunday afternoon at the 2010 Arts and Health Festival at the UF Shands Cancer Center. painting, Zumba and yoga classes. Events like this, Castle said, are good ways for Parkinson's disease patients and other patients to get out of the house or hospital room and do something fun that allows them to mingle with others. "Art can make a huge difference in the healing environment and the hospital experience," said Alie Wickham, program assistant for Shands Arts in Medicine. "We need people to be involved to help this field grow and develop," she said. Shands Arts in Medicine was started in 1990 and currently works with Shands at UF, the Shands Cancer Hospital and surrounding clinics. The program helps to facilitate creative art activities and bring the arts to patients in local hospitals, according to Wickham. Public The program has various classes available for patients in areas such as dance, music, literary arts and visual arts. Chip Colley, 54, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease nearly two years ago. Now, he's an artist within Shands Arts in Medicine program. "I couldn't draw until I got Parkinson's," Colley said. "I really started enjoying art." The festival was held primarily to raise awareness about arts and health and to support the community, Wickham said. "Art is not an alternative to the health care that Shands provides," Wickham said. "It is a complement. Patients need to heal spiritually along with physically, and art can play a key role in that." Alumni take Gator Nation into enemy territory at FSU By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer At Florida State University's law school, deep within the enemy's camp, there occasionally hangs a sign that says, "Work 'Em Silly, Gators." This icon of The Swamp, painted on a pillowcase, is hung by the Litigators, a student-run organization within FSU's law school that provides a home away from home for the numerous UF graduate students that attend the college. Sometimes, it serves as a recruitment tool during times when prospective students come and visit the school, said president Kim Siomkos, who, like most Litigators, is a UF graduate. The group wants Gainesville students to know that despite going to a rival school, there is a group of people who share a common bond -being a Gator. "Gainesville will always be my home," Siomkos said. "So anything I can do to remind me of being there is something that I want to get involved in." The group primarily functions as a social group and a way for students from Gainesville to network with other law students with UF undergraduate degrees who found their way up north to Tallahassee. They host game-day tailgates and game-watching parties, hold monthly meetings, go to Gator baseball games when they play FSU and also host various events like beer tastings with the Capital Area Gator Club. One of the group's biggest events is their UF-FSU rivalry week, which was hosted last week so as not to coincide with exams. "We try to have it in early November before the studying for exams gets too overwhelming or too hectic so people can still participate and have a good time," said treasurer Brett Miller. During the week, the stairwell of the school is decorated on one side with orange and blue and the other side in garnet and gold, complete with the slogans, "If you're not a Gator, then you're Gator bait," and "Gator haters." The week also includes a powderpuff game, a canned food drive and a Mr. FSU pageant. The school's administration seems pleased with the group, even though it is dedicated to proving its loyalty to a rival school. "They're very, very helpful to our school," said Don Weidner, the dean of FSU College of Law. "UF is a terrific undergraduate Student Body, and to be sure, we very actively recruit undergraduate UF students, and they're very active in that effort." "Gainesville will always be my home." Kim Siomkos UF graduate and litigator One of the reasons Weidner said a organization like Litigators is helpful is because of the sheer volume of UF graduates that the college receives. In two out of the last three incoming classes of law students, UF graduates have outnumbered the graduates from every other university, including FSU. Siomkos said she enjoys having the backing of the administration. "This is one of the selling points for me for FSU Law," she said, "the fact that an entire faculty and administration can get behind us and realize we're not here to be an annoyance, we're here to be an asset."

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 International week to showcase opportunities abroad 0 THE GOAL IS TO MAKE STUDENTS AWARE OF GLOBAL ISSUES. By GRETCHEN GORDIN Alligator Contributing Writer UF students and faculty will have the opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange this week. Mabel Cardec, outreach coordinator for the UF International Center, said the events during International Education Week are offered at UF to make people aware of the importance of global issues. "The Gator Nation is everywhere around the world -not just on campus or in Gainesville," Cardec said. "We need students in higher education to realize this to prepare for their future careers." This year's theme, "Making Global Connections," will highlight opportunities available for international engagement on campus and around the world. The kick-off event is today at 10:15 a.m. with a brief opening ceremony in the Hub highlighting the week's activities with a mini-concert featuring UF's African choir. The UF College of Education is also hosting an event today at 12:30 p.m. in Norman Hall with international food and panels of students and faculty about how their international experiences have affected their work. "The Gator Nation is everywhere around the world." Mabel Cardec Outreach Coordinator UFIC Dean Rockwell, a UFIC study abroad adviser, said students who study abroad can discover so much by learning in a different environment. "Your ability to learn is amazing when you're abroad," Rockwell said. "Learning customs from new people that speak a different language presents a good opportunity to grow as a person." On Friday, UFIC will host "NGO/PVO Day: Extending International Collaboration and Networking" from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Reitz Union Auditorium and Grand Ballroom Salon A and E. "We have so many international students here so it's nice to have events that will interest those students and show how internationally diverse UF is," he said.

More than 900 people attended Starry Night, an annual public stargazing event, on Friday to peer through telescopes and peruse astronomy exhibits at the Florida Museum of Natural History.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 Party Foul Rep. Shuler segmenting Democrats J ust when everyone thought things couldn't get any worse for the Democrats in Congress with the wreckage still being cleaned from precincts across the country and the capitol nearly oozing blue blood down its steps, in walks little-known Rep. Heath Shuler to shake things up. Shuler, a North Carolina Democrat, announced Sunday he would challenge current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in her run for leader of the now-minority party in the House of Representatives. Saying that allowing Pelosi to continue to lead the Democrats in the House is "unacceptable," Shuler said he's going to "press forward" in forcing Pelosi to fight for the leadership. Casting the Democrat from all-too-liberal California as, well, too liberal, Shuler also said he's the better moderate choice to Pelosi's tree-hugging, health-care-lauding West Coast style for the Democrats. And Shuler knows he can't win. Adding he doesn't have the votes to beat the powerhouse that is Pelosi, Shuler's challenge acts more as a warning to Democrats in Congress fighting for "liberal" things like social welfare and health care. And after a "shellacking" in the midterm elections, Democrats don't need in-party quarreling. Although Shuler might have good intentions to bring his party a little to the right to appease more voters come 2012, Shuler is only further segmenting his already-injured party. We're just looking forward to Pelosi hopefully singing her own rendition of Beyonce's "To the left, to the left." Graphic design Cigarettes are getting graphic. After an announcement Wednesday, the Food and Drug Administration said it would make the first major change to cigarette packaging in more than 25 years by requiring cigarette companies to include graphic warnings above the brand name of each box of cigarettes. A mere warning from the Surgeon General admonishing smokers not to light up while pregnant or a, "Hey, you might get cancer," warning isn't cutting it anymore for the FDA. The definitely-notsuitable-for-picture-books graphics will display images ranging from decaying teeth to a corpse in an attempt to persuade smokers to put down the pack for good. And when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates smokers cost America $193 billion annually in lost productivity and health care costs, we couldn't be happier with the extra efforts the FDA is making to put an end to this deadly habit that holds the dubious title as the No. 1 cause of preventable death in America. But, at the same time, we realize smokers are more than aware of the dangers associated with lighting up. Smokers know each time they choose to smoke they cut minute after minute off their lives. Smokers have seen the images of tar-black, tobacco-tainted lungs. So, although we fully support the graphic warning labels or any other sensible measure to prevent deaths from tobacco abuse, we realize smokers are still going to smoke. And that's a shame. a ll e independent ftorida al gao Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University Ay or send them to P0 Box 14257, Gainesvi Iie, FL 32604-2257ooiumns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Fancy that. A little more than a week ago, the MSNBC talkshow host was suspended because he violated NBC guidelines about giving campaign donations. The punishment for this was an "indefinite suspension," a phrase we know all too well in Gainesville. Right, Chns Rainey? Fortunately for Olbermann, the reaction of bleeding blue hearts across the country, plus the horrific thought of what would happen to MSNBC ratings without him, resulted in his suspension lasting for a horrifyingly anxietyinvoking two business days. You can't really blame Olbermann's bosses, though. Technically, he did break the rule by donating the maximum legal amount to three Democrat candidates. But did he really break the spirit of the rule? The rule was designed to protect the journalistic integrity of those working for NBC's non-biased hard-news shows. That makes sense, and it's actually a pretty good rule that exists for all The New York Times and The Washington Post journalists. But is anyone not dying from a bleeding heart really going to sit there and tell me "Countdown with Keith 01bermann" is a non-biased, hard-news show? That same person would also probably be quick to tell me Glenn Beck hands out hugs to Democrats walking down the street. Truth is we all know where Olbermann's loyalties lie, and there's nothing wrong with that. If you don't like his opinions, change the channel to Fox News. But as the face of an opinionated show, should he really be held accountable to the same rules as the journalists who work for the hard-news shows of NBC? There is precedent for news companies allowing its hosts to donate money. In fact, all we have to do is look to Olbermann's favorite conversation piece to find an example of this. Fox News does, in fact, allow its employees to donate to campaign funds, a rule its hosts take advantage of quite often. This past campaign Chris Dodson cycle Fox's parent company, News letters@alligator org Corp., dished out $1.25 million in campaign donations. Of course, 01bermann did publicly make fun of Fox for that, which is all-too-ironic now. There is another way of looking at this, though. The amount of face time opinionated shows give candidates running for office is worth a lot more to them than the $2,400 Olbermann was legally allowed to donate. On shows like "Countdown," you don't see many non-liberal faces very often, if ever. Meaning, all of the time they allocate on their shows to doing interviews is basically one long, free advertisement for the candidates. So, in that case, everyone hosting an opinionated show is donating to a campaign by means of saving them money. If MSNBC took that route, it'd be running a lot of reruns during prime time. The real question here is why doesn't MSNBC just remove the rule and take the Fox approach? For once, surprisingly, I think Fox got something right. How does it make any sense to punish a TV broadcast journalist for giving contributions when, in reality, he or she is doing the same thing every time he or she has a guest on his or her show? Somehow, though, I don't think Olbermann will admit Fox got this one nght -at least not in as many words. Chris Dodson is afirst-yearfinance and journalism student.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Israel's relationship with U.S. vital Some political commentators argue Israel is a strategic liability to the foreign policy interests of the United States and that America would benefit from lessening or cutting ties with Israel. Although the U.S.-Israel alliance, just like any alliance, isn't perfect, the commonalities and intensive cooperation between Israel and the U.S. make Israel an indispensable American ally. Common values ensure the foundation for the unbreakable bond between Israel and the U.S.; Israel is the only functioning democracy in a part of the world that contains mostly autocratic regimes susceptible to radical coups at any time. Israel is the only country in the Middle East that grants full rights to women, religious minorities and gay people and protects free speech and freedom of the press. As a beacon for democracy and human rights in the Middle East, Israel is the only nation in the region with which support for the U.S. is guaranteed. This guaranteed support remains critical as Israel and the U.S. confront common enemies. The U.S. receives a substantial bargain annually by supplying Israel with security assistance that enables Israel to fight terrorism and America's enemies without forcing the U.S. to commit troops on the ground. Israel's location allows it to serve as a strategic American outpost in a region vital to America's energy considerations and foreign policy interests. In addition to providing bases for the U.S. military to refuel planes and restock ships, Israel has shared vital intelligence with the U.S. Israel is the U.S.' strongest ally in addressing the threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons capability. Israel frequently contributes its innovative prowess and cutting-edge technologies to the U.S. military in the form of life-saving equipment, including the emergency bandage and armor-plated tanks. Israel ultimately provides an irreplaceable wealth of resources and knowledge for America's strategic interests in the Middle East.

What is obvious is that something needs to change. The Gators need to use our offensive weapons more effectively and stop relying on a quarterback-running back scheme because we clearly don't have it down. The days of the Tebow-Harvin powerhouse are long gone, and the earlier the coaches and coordinators accept it, the better. Use the advantages of the wide receivers' and running backs' speed and pair it with the versatility and size of the tight ends and we could be unstoppable. Gators, we have to do better. Embracing the new shape of the Gator offense and finding a way to use the recruiting class effectively are the next challenges for the team to overcome. Of course, SEC title hopes are a thing of the past, but we can improve from here and regain some of that lost dignity, pride and respect for Gator Nation football. Jasmine Earls UF student Gator Nation has fickle fans Dear Gator Nation, You are some of the worst fans on the planet. Whenever your team is winning you cheer your hearts out, but when we're not doing so well you don't cheer. When the team makes plays you don't agree with you actually start to jeer the team. Do you seriously think that's going to make them play better? A good number of people also left before the end of the third quarter. We still could have caught up at that time. Some of you don't live up to the words, "In all kinds of weather we all stick together for F-L-O-R-I-D-A." You should be ashamed you only support your team when we're winning and not at all times. The Gators are not invincible, like every other team. We had bad times in the past and will have bad times again. I know I will still cheer no matter how our team is doing. And to everyone who stayed the whole game and cheered no matter how down we were, I thank you whole-heartedly. Go Gators!

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 AROUND GAINESVILLE Middle schooners write to South African pen pals By ESTEE BECK Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville middle school students, some of whom have never been outside of central Florida, are making connections across the world. Three middle schools in Gainesville are part of a pen pal program, allowing students to communicate with other students their own age in South Africa. It started with Science Partners in Inquiry-based Collaborative Education, a project funded by the National Science Foundation for UF graduate students of various studies. SPICE, which pairs a graduate student with a participating teacher at one of six Alachua County schools, aims to create hands-on, inquiry-based lessons or activities for students to teach ecosystem health. The NSF awarded SPICE with a onetime grant to travel to South Africa for research purposes and to visit South African schools. But a three-week trip in the summer of 2009 was not enough for Darma Palacio. "We wanted to give back and continue the relationship," said Palacio, a secondyear environmental engineering graduate student. Palacio, who does her SPICE activities at Howard W. Bishop Middle School, spearheaded the pen pal project. About 100 students there, along with about 100 at Lincoln Middle School and 100 at A.L. Mebane Middle School, wrote letters to 130 students in South Africa at Mandeni Primary School in February, Palacio said. South African students responded to the letters in June, according to May Steward, a seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Middle School. The last scheduled delivery of the international letters was Friday to Steward's students. "They're learning things they never thought they would." May Steward Seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Middle School Steward, who has been working with UF's SPICE for six years, said the pen pal project has changed her students' perspectives of the world. "They see that the kids aren't that different from them," Steward said. The letters, delivered in giant pink and orange envelopes, were decorated with colorful notes, pictures, drawings and magazine cutouts. Messages read, "I love you," "friends forever" and "God may bless you," along with facts about each student's life. Palacio said SPICE also held a school supplies drive from January to February and sent two large suitcases full of supplies to Mandeni. Mandeni was able to start new art classes because of the supply delivery. SPICE will not continue to coordinate letter deliveries, but students are highly encouraged to keep contact. "They're learning things they never thought they would," Steward said of her students. "They are ecstatic." Participants in this year's event brought in about $65,000 BABIES, from page 1 "You never think this is going to happen to you," she said. "I did everything by the book and still ended up with a premature baby." According to March of Dimes statistics, one out of eight babies is born preterm. Gators March for Babies was created so college students, teachers and alumni could get involved with a growing epidemic. The event was a 5k walk/run through the UF campus with "spirit stations" along the way with giveaways and free cupcakes, popcorn and brownies. Participants who made it to the end walked under an arch of purple and white balloons, greeted by the UF band, Dazzlers and the UF gymnastics team. Betsy Trent, executive director of March of Dimes in North Central Florida, said this year brought in about $65,000 to fund various programs and grants, like smoking cessabon for mothers and support for families with prematurity issues. She said brain development is crucial in the last few weeks of pregnancy, and mothers should try to go full term if possible. A recent study funded by the March of Dimes found that some mothers and doctors choose to induce labor and have Caesarean sections out of converence and not of necessity. Cecelia Ribuffo knows love and loss all too well. She always wanted a baby girl. When she was little, she would cradle her favorite doll and imagine what it would be like to hold her own child in her arms. In college, she got pregnant and thought she finally had everything she wanted. It wasn't so. Early pregnancy was marred by constant cramping. And she wasn't gaining weight. She knew something was wrong. At first, the doctors said she was "anxious." Ribuffo, in Meyer constant pain, felt like her baby was having seizures inside of her. When they cut Annabelle out she weighed only 2 pounds. "I felt so sorry for her. You expect your little Gerber baby," she said. "Instead you have a child that's holding on for dear life." The situation wasn't ideal, but the Ribuffos were a family. However, before the shutter clicked for a family photo by the incubator, the doctor walked in with bad news. Annabelle's brain was bleeding. Doctors tried an experimental procedure that involved burning a hole into her brain. It didn't work. They tried a brain shunt to decrease swelling. Through the ordeal, Ribuffo tried toput on a brave face, but she was tortured. Finally, Annabelle stabilized and the Ribuffos could breathe. They registered at Babies"R"Us and took a trip to Walt Disney World. When they got back, they were on a high, only to be greeted by bad news. Annabelle was fussy and didn't want to be held. Her head started growing again. She had hydrocephalus, a buildup of spinal fluid in the brain. It can be deadly, moreso for infants. An MRI of Annabelle's brain showed that there was barely any fluid left. It was all black with a thin layer of red. She was brain dead. Annabelle would never know who she was, she'd never know her parents, she'd never know Santa Claus. After all the fighting and fear, all the surgeries and pain, all the hope you could squeeze out of a human being, it was over. Even though she suffered an unspeakable loss, Ribuffo wants others to know this could happen to them. And even though she probably can't carry another baby, her sister-in-law offered to be a surrogate mother. They started the process last week. MR BA,xTs 2C10 t UF graduate student Cecelia Ribuffo and her husband, Michael Ribuffo, pose on Turlington Plaza on Sunday. Wagner: UPD is focusing less on ticketing, more on preventing rule-breaking BIKE, from page 1 have to make yourself big, basically make yourself a car," he said. An example of such a situation would be when a biker intends to make a left turn. In those instances, a cyclist should enter into the left vehicle lane and use the appropriate hand signals. Wagner said that in addition to forgetting to use these signals, many cyclists fail to stop at red lights. Another concern that has raised safety issues involves headsets. Florida law says people can't operate a vehicle -including a bicycle -while wearing a headset, headphone or any other listening device besides a hearing aid, according to Florida Bicycle Laws. Bike riders also commonly disregard the ordinance that requires them to ride with lights at night. Wagner said this requirement is not only to help riders see while riding, but also to make cyclists more visible to other vehicles. Harcha understands how important it is for bikers to practice "defensive riding." Crowded bike lanes raise a need for bikers to be aware of other riders. Harcha said bikers also have to be aware of cars. "You gotta watch out for cars because cars won't watch out for you," he said. Harcha experienced this firsthand when he was in a bike accident dunng the 2009 spring semester. A driver didn't see him as he was crossing Gale Lemerand Dnve and hit his front tire, sending him flying through the air. Harcha, who woke up in the hospital with a fractured left temporal bone and wnst, said he was not wearing a helmet. After the accident, he said he became much more serious about bicycle safety, specifically helmet use. He now considers wearing a helmet "the most important thing you can do" while nding a bike. Wagner said a high percentage of bike accident injuries are head injunes. Harcha learned this the hard way. "If you fall over, your head Public is the farthest thing from the Safety ground," he said. Sara Drumm, a sophomore journalism major at UF, said she sees bicycle accidents on campus all the time. After deciding she didn't feel safe riding on campus last year, she left her bike on campus hoping that it would be picked up by UPD at the end of the year. "Watching the bikers on campus makes me feel like I would probably crash into someone and die," she said. Wagner said UPD is focusing less on ticketing students who are breaking rules and more on preventing the rules from being broken in the first place. UPD gives presentations at Freshman Preview Orientation weekends as well as at the meetings of different campus organizations. These presentations highlight the importance of bicycle safety to student cyclists and remind them of the laws. The presentations are also meant to inform students of the potential dangers involved with riding bicycles. There's a gray area, however. Bikers are allowed in some areas that cars are not, and many of these areas are on campus. Adam Butler, a junior at UF, said that a lot of bike safety should be second nature for riders. "You need to use common sense and not run over people," he said. b

Sports MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Florida's NCAA Tournament run ends in shootout 0 DUKE BEAT UF 4-2. By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Writer It was a game of d j vu. For the second time this season, Florida and Duke played for 120 minutes. And both times the two teams left everything out on the field. But Sunday afternoon, Becky Burleigh's Gators ran out of gas when the clock wasn't even ticking. "Obviously that was a disappointing finish to a great season." Becky Burleigh UF soccer coach No. 5 Florida, a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament, lost to the Blue Devils in a penalty shootout, leaving a sad taste in many Gators' mouths. "Obviously that was a disappointing finish to a great season," Burleigh said. "I hand it to Duke. They defended hard. I thought that they played really hard." In a physical battle that pitted the two familiar opponents, Duke was able to outlast Florida by scoring all four of its penalty kick opportunities. After a scoreless two halves and two overtimes, a terrific season that included sweeping the Southeastern Conference Championships was down to who could kick the ball the best from 12 yards away. "We had to be at the top of our game," Duke coach Robbie Church F s Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff UF midfielder Erika Tymrak (17) and the Gators were eliminated in the second round of the NCAA Tournament against Duke on Sunday. said. "We got by by the slimmest of margins. It's a tough way to win and a tough way to lose." The game was controlled by a constant ebb and flow. Both teams defended relentlessly, and at times the referee seemed to lose control. There were a combined 27 fouls in the game, but one that wasn't called was perhaps the play of the game. With less than a minute to go in the second overtime, SEC Tournament MVP Erika Tymrak possessed the ball at the top of Duke's box. Quickly changing direction to get the ball back on her right foot, Tymrak was body-checked by a Blue Devils defender. But there was no call. In a game in which the referee kept the whistle close, a packed James G. Pressly Stadium went nuts when he decided not to make the call. However, the officials did not decide the game, as Florida failed to mount constant pressure on the Duke defense. "We were not able to break them down enough to get good opportunities," Burleigh said. "It just seemed like we were just a little bit out of sync in terms of our passing and connecting with each other." UF FOOTBALL Lattimore gashes Gators By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer krnaistri@alligator org Marcus Lattimore was stood up, forward progress halted, on the Florida 5-yard line. Then, his linemen ran up behind him and pushed him into the end zone for his third score of the game -the cherry on top of South Carolina's 36-14 victory. It was the perfect end to the night -even when UF stopped Lattimore, it couldn't really stop Lattimore. South Carolina's freshman workhorse rushed 40 times for 212 yards and three scores, all career highs. It was the third time this season Lattimore went over 180 yards (Georgia and Tennessee) and the second time he went over 35 carries (Georgia). "We needed to have great run defense, and we didn't," defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said. UF's front seven couldn't contain USC's powerful ground game from start to finish, as Lattimore ran to build a lead and then maintain it. Kentucky's Derrick Locke held the previous high rushing total against UF's defense this season, going for 103 on the ground in a 48-14 blowout loss. The 6-foot, 218-pound back ran for 83 yards in the frst half Saturday, breakLattimore ing tackles and dragging defenders for extra yards. Lattimore's physical running style was too much for the Gators' defense. "He did a great job running through SEE LATTIMORE, PAGE 15 UF's disappointing season sign of things ake off your blue gear for a second. While you're at it, remove those orange-and-blue sunglasses that cloud your vision. Urban Meyer and the Gators urged fans to come out in full force and dress like smurfs on Saturday, now it's time that you demand something from them: some good football. But that request could go unfulflled for a couple of years.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 15 Gamecocks double Gators' time of possession LATTIMORE, from page 14 tackles and a good job getting north and south," Austin said. "We didn't do a good job tackling." Austin said his team did a great job getting off the field last week against Vanderbilt, when the Gators allowed the Commodores to convert only twice in 16 opportunities on third down. "He did a great job running through tackles and a good job getting north and south. We didn't do a good job tackling." Teryl Austin UF defensive coordinator Behind Lattimore, the Gamecocks converted eight of 16 attempts on third down and dominated time of possession 40:46 to 19:14. UF coach Urban Meyer didn't put all of Lattimore's success on his defense, saying the time of possession was too much to overcome. "We have to help those guys out," Meyer said of his offense. In addition to South Carolina controlling the clock with its run game, Florida's offense couldn't stay on the field and sustain a drive to give the defense a muchneeded break. The Gators went three-and-out on four of their first six drives and didn't have a drive of more than five plays until the fourth quarter. -I r 5r WOL NA A __A UF entered the third quarter with 67 total yards and three first downs. Those offensive statistics, paired with Florida's up-tempo offense, allowed South Carolina to control the ball for most of the game. Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff South Carolina freshman running back Marcus Lattimore carried the ball 40 times for 212 yards and three touchdowns, all career highs, against Florida on Saturday. Debose returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown FOOTBALL, from page 1 Not the early game plan of giving Chris Rainey the ball. Seven of the first 10 plays went to Rainey, and he finished the first half with 13 yards. Florida was outgained 347 yards to 67 through three quarters and allowed South Carolina to hold possession for a whopping 40 minutes out of 60. Afterward, Meyer was lost for words to point out the problems. "If I had an answer for that, we wouldn't have struggled," he said. The lone bright spot was Andre Debose's 99-yard touchdown return on the opening kickoff, but that wound up as more karma than a game-changer. Debose sent the stadium into a frenzy, but the Gamecocks rattled off 29 unanswered points to suck the drama out of the game -a scene reminiscent of Florida's 2006 BCS Championship win, when Ohio State lost 41-14 after returning the opening kick for a score. South Carolina leaned hard on freshman running back Marcus Lattimore, who turned 40 carries into 212 yards and three touchdowns. His last score twisted the knife in the Gators' back, when he was stood up at the 5-yard line and pounded his way into the end zone with the help of his teammates to set the fhnal margin. "Basically, they did whatever they wanted whenever they wanted," Black said. Gamecocks quarterback Stephen Garcia was an efficient 15 of 22 for 156 yards and added a rushing touchdown. It wasn't a star performance, but he outplayed Brantley by far. Brantley entered the fourth quarter 8 of 16 with 46 yards and an interception, and the low point came in the third, when his pass was batted into the air and he caught it from his back for a loss of 10 yards. Fans booed both the play-calling and Brantley's performance, and cheers rained down when Jordan Reed was subbed in for a few plays. Reed wasn't flashy either, with 12 yards rushing and 46 passing, but he did throw a touchdown to Rainey, who took a pass in the flat and dashed down the sideline for a score. The loss highlighted a lot of problem areas for the Gators to address, but Meyer said benching Brantley isn't an option. "Jordan's not functional at everything yet as a quarterback," Meyer said. "We were going to be in the throwing game trying to come back, and we were going to try and win that game."

That team had Percy Harvin. This one has .Deonte Thompson? The future of Florida football is not as bright as it is made out to be. Unless the Gators manage a miracle-like breakthrough in the last three games of the year, they will enter next season with more question marks than answers. The quarterback position that has accumulated 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season looks to have no solution in sight. Brantley will likely be the team's quarterback next season only because of a lack of depth at the position. He has yet to prove anything in his first season at the helm. Although, that was a hell of a one-handed catch he made on his back against South Carolina. And who will fill in for a depleted Gators defense? UF will lose senior defensive tackles Lawrence Marsh, Brandon Antwine and Terron Sanders, and this season's starting defensive ends, Justin Trattou and Duke Lemmens. Safety Ahmad Black, the best player on the team, in my opinion, is the only member of Florida's secondary who is guaranteed to be gone. But Jenkins could leave early for the NFL. Starting outside linebackers A.J. Jones and Brandon Hicks are also playing in their last season as Gators. Those are eight contributors on the UF defense definitely leaving, maybe nine if Jenkins decides to forgo his senior season. And on offense, the Gators will lose four of their starting offensive linemen. But the real problem is that all of the "skill players" are returning except for running back Emmanuel Moody. The unit will feature most of the same receivers and backs who have contributed to this season s stagnant offense. It doesn't help that next year's schedule features SEC West matchups against Alabama and Auburn, and road games against LSU and South Carolina. So blame the coaches, players, refs, or whoever else you can find to use as a scapegoat. But the truth is that the Gators have begun a new chapter of football called the rebuilding era.

16, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010 UF BASKETBALL Gators open season with win against UNC-Wilmington By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org The Gators may not have opened the game the way they wanted to, but it's hard to argue with the end result. No. 9 Florida overcame a slow start to win its 20th consecutive season opener as it defeated UNC-Wilmington 77-60 on Friday in the O'Connell Center. The Gators trailed 11-6 after 4:55 but used balanced scoring, strong rebounding and a powerful press to make a 15-4 run en route to the victory. Each of the five starters scored at least nine points, while sophomore Erik Murphy chipped in 10 of his own off the bench. "We had really good balance," said senior Chandler Parsons, who led the way with 16 points. "That's going to be our whole thing this year. We play unselfish and make the extra pass." The Gators had plenty of chances to score, as they cashed in on 52 percent of their offensive rebounding opportunities. Senior Alex Tyus led the way on the glass, grabbing four of the team's 17 offensive boards and finishing with a team-high seven rebounds. "That was one of our tone points last year, and we wanted to start it off strong this year," Tyus said. "That's something that we can control, just trying to kill the other team on the offensive glass." A third point that helped Florida to victory was a potent press defense led by freshman Scottie Wilbekin, who recorded four steals in 17 minutes. Wilbekin rotated with Parsons, sophomore Kenny Boynton and junior Erving Walker at the guard spots, allowing the Gators to wear down a shallow Seahawks backcourt. UF's 12 steals were a refreshing change from the second half of the team's final exhibition game, when coach Billy Donovan noticed a lack of intensity. "Coach got onto us this week in practice about the press," Wilbekin said. "We were all trying to get out there and work hard in the press and frustrate them." While the Gators successfully forced 20 turnovers, they also recorded 15 of their own. Florida was often guilty of attempting ill-advised Parsons home-run passes, and its guards occasionally tried to push the ball up the floor too quickly. "I think we rushed a little bit offensively in the first half, certainly the first 10 minutes," Donovan said. Another area in which the Gators continued to struggle was 3-point shooting, as the team shot just 6 of 19 in the game. Boynton cooled down significantly after shooting 8 of 15 from beyond the arc in the exhibition season, going 0 for 6 from downtown against UNCW. Walker, on the other hand, rebounded from a preseason in which he shot just 1 of 10 from distance by opening the year with a 3-for-5 performance. Despite his players' streaky shooting, Donovan hasn't asked them to limit their attempts. "We haven't been a prolific scoring team and a knock-down jump-shooting team, but I try to give them freedom because I do think when you do that they can have a game where they make 12,13,14 threes," Donovan said. "We can't let a lack of knocking down 3-point shots discourage us as a team." The Gators will host No. 4 Ohio State on Tuesday. Florida uses record night on defense to beat UCF UF will face Charlotte tonight By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer All offseason, the coaches and players have talked about bringing a new brand of Gators basketball to Gainesville. That new look was visible at times in Saturday's 77-67 victory over visiting UCF in the first round of the Preseason Women's NIT. After falling behind 9-1 to start the game, the Gators used an attacking defense to take control. On a night when the team tied the school record for blocks with 14, it was the defense that set the tone and helped the Gators recover Difficulty reading words Trouble spelling words Rereading text to comprehend it Slow reading speed THESE SKILLS The Morris Center, Inc. 352.332.262915930 SW Archer Rd. info@morriscenters.com IRONWODD Newly Renovated Greens, Tees, & Bunkers A Homerun for Ironwood." -Keith Walko City resident Valid: Mon-Thurs (All Day) Fri-Sun and Holidays (After 12pm) Call 334-3120 For Your Tee Time Today s 2100 NE 39th Avenue from 16 first-half turnovers. "The good thing about having a lot of turnovers and still being able to have a win is that they're correctable, they're in your control," coach Amanda Butler said. "A lot of our turnovers were things we did to ourselves. When you're in charge of your own mistakes, you have a better chance at correcting them." The Gators did just that. Fans began to see the up-tempo style Butler wants to use during a 16-3 run in the final 5:14 of the first half, helping Florida build a 10-point lead. UF came out of halftime much the same, extending its lead to 22 points. "When we ran away from them .that was the tempo we needed, defensively and offensively," Butler said. Much of the spark came from the guard duo of Jaterra Bonds and Lanita Bartley. Bonds came off the bench to Women's lead the Gators Basketball with 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting in a teamhigh 29 minutes of action. Bartley used her aggressive play to grab four steals and lead the Gators on multiple fast-break scoring opportunities. The two brought the same intensity to the offensive end, driving to the basket and forcing UCF to defend in the paint as well as outside. "I just use my quickness and do what I do," Bartley said of her four steals. "I wanted to set the tempo and get my team involved and just run. That's what we do best." She finished with 12 points and four rebounds in a nearly mistakefree 18 minutes. Guard Kayla Lewis became the first true freshman to start a home opener since 2002, and she didn't disappoint. Lewis stuffed the stat sheet with nine points, six rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal. Despite going up by 22, the Gators' lead shriveled to just five with 2:25 left in the game, but the players said they weren't worried. "We needed to step our tempo up," Bonds said. "There was no way that lead should have got cut down to five points." Two clutch free throws and one of a team-high four blocks from center Azania Stewart sparked the Gators and extended the lead back to nine points with more than a minute to play. "With all the hard work we have put in since June, it was time to go out there and have some fun," Lewis said. With the win, UF advances to the second round of the NIT and will take on Charlotte tonight at 7 in the O'Connell Center. i4 I 0 0 Se bartender for details 6The V ar& Gril F HOUSE, GAT $2.99 DAILY LUNCH SPECIALS
