UF gets biggest cut of grant


* UF WILL GET $2.45 MILLION
OUT OF $10 MILLION.

By JON SILMAN
Alligator Writer

UF is the biggest recipient of a $10
million joint award to the state univer-
sity system.
The $2.45 million share of the
award, announced Monday, is part of
the 2010 New Florida Initiative.
The initiative is a - .11 -,1:. ., :,r, .-. ef-
fort - along with business and gov-
ernment - to aid Florida's economy
and create high-'.:,,. .1.. and high-
wage jobs.
All 11 state universities pitched
more than 93 proposals for the initia-


tive's awards, and 31 were selected by
the Board of Governors of the State
University System.
UF President Bernie Machen said
the program is an example of what
can happen when you pool the best
research skills and
focus them on a
challenge.
"The people of
Florida will ben-
efit greatly from
this partnership
with FSU through
Machen improved health
care and a stronger
"Machensaid.
UF is also involved with programs
involving climate change, expansion


of Internet infrastructure and biomedi-
cal engineering.
The money was given to the Board
of Governors by the state legislature,
and the funds will produce a series
of demonstration projects that show a
high return on investment, so the proj-
ects can continue into next year.
Board Chairwoman Ava Parker
said this is the best way to leverage
not just the best current and future
academic scholars, but nationally re-
nowned facilities and university re-
sources, as well.
As part of its standard overall year-
ly budget request, the board has asked
the Legislature for $150 million for
next year, which would be the second
year of the New Florida Initiative.


Commission


gets iPads
By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Gainesville's Becky Rountree received an iPad
for her birthday, she didn't think it would lead to saving
the city thousands of dollars. She just thought it was a
great present from her husband.
But since Rountree, the city administrative services
director, got her gift, the iPads are multiplying in city
hall. Last month, Mayor Craig Lowe was the first of the
city commission to use an iPad as an initiative to go pa-
perless.
"I'm getting used to looking at the agenda in a differ-
1,_,, -, "hesaid.
Local The mayor said he was eager to give it
NeWS a try and described the transition from pa-
per agendas to digital as smooth.
"I don't think that it will replace paper," he said. "But
it will reduce it."
It's almost been a month since he started using the
iPad, and today, all seven members of the commission
will have their own, saving the city an estimated $1,715
this year and more than $5,000 each year after.
"I've never seen anything happen so fast," Rountree
said.

Judge urges Crist


to approve plant


By MARISSA PRIETO

The plan to build a 100-mega-
watt biomass power plant in
Gainesville has been recom-
mended for approval to Gov.
Charlie Crist and his Cabinet by
a state administrative law judge.
After a four-day hearing in
August concerning the plant's
approval, Judge Robert E. Meale
issued a 72-page recommended
order earlier this month.
The plant, (.lli-.:i.Il titled the
Gainesville Renewable Energy

Sanford dealership offers free AK-47 with purchase of trucks


SANFORD - A central Florida dealer-
ship trying to drum up business is offering
an unusual perk for potential used-truck
buyers: A free AK-47 assault rifle.
General sales manager Nick Ginetta says
that since the promotion was announced
on Veterans Day, business has more than
doubled at Nations Trucks in Sanford.
Customers would have to pass a back-
ground check before using the $400 gun
shop voucher. They also have the option


of using the money toward other firearms,
or they can request a check in that amount
instead.
The dealership has fielded some com-
plaints about the deal, which Ginetta ac-
knowledges is controversial. But, he adds:
"My buyer is absolutely a gun owner, no
question."
The promotion runs through the end of
November.

Engineering students' 'Chem-E-Car' places

Their car is fueled entirely by chemical reactions


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

As Cougar rolled to the finish,
its creators held their breath.
The car, fueled entirely by
chemical reactions, had passed
the rigorous safety test.
It was consistent in practice.
All it had to do now was stop
near a line.
It stopped 29 inches from the
line, which was good enough to
propel the team from UF's chap-
ter of the American Institute of
Chemical En-
UF gineers tempo-
Academics rarely into first
place.
Team members jumped and
chanted, "It's great to be a Flori-
da Gator!" with the University of
South Florida team.
The UF team took second
place in the national Chemical
Engineering Car competition,
nicknamed the Chem-E-Car and
hosted by the AIChE, and earned
the title of Most Consistent Per-
formance on Nov. 7 in Salt Lake
City.
Cornell University competed


after the UF team and ended up
winning first place.
The car runs only off of hydro-
gen, which powers a fuel cell to


run the motor.
The competition required a
car to stop at a line 95 feet away
while carrying 250 grams of wa-


ter.
Cary Warsetsky, president of
the UF chapter of AIChE, said the
club has progressed immensely

nationally
in the four years he's been in-
volved. He said his team barely
had a moving car his freshman
year and that to place second in
nationals is an amazing improve-
ment.
Next year, they plan to build
two cars: a reliable car like Cou-
gar and an innovative car that no
one's ever seen before.
They want to win the creativ-
ity contest, too.
In order to prepare for the com-
petition, club members started
planning last September and met
twice a day for the two months
leading up to the competition.
"It's a year-round project,"
said Louis Vazquez, chairman of
the Chem-E-Car project.
As far as hands-on learning
goes, he said this project is king.
Older members teach new stu-
dents how to build the car and
how to avoid the problems they
had in other competitions.
"You pick up things that you
didn't learn from a textbook," he
said.
Warsetsky said the win was a
boost for UF's image, but it was
also a personal victory for him
and his team.
"It was definitely a good mo-
ment for us," he said.

Firefighter makes toughest cat rescue in 20 years


Courtesy to the Alligator
Gainesville Fire Rescue driver and operator Alan Dubose handles Wallie, a kitten that
was rescued a from a storm drain Sunday afternoon.


By JERRY BRUNO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The cries for help from a kitten stuck in
a storm drain 20 feet below ground came
to an end on Sunday when a Gainesville
firefighter saved the forsaken feline.
The animal was trapped at Walmart,
2649 NW 13th St., where the employees
told Mary Marion, of Lake City, nothing
could be done to help the kitten.
"I just had to do something," she said.
She called 911, and Gainesville Fire Res-
cue arrived at the scene at 3:25 p.m.
"I thought this situation would be
easy," said Jeff Lane, Fire Department
district chief. "But the situation was more
complex because of possible hazardous
materials in the drainage pipe, such as hy-
drogen sulfide."
Firefighters first removed the large
grates covering the drainage vault and
tried unsuccessfully to coax the kitten with
cat food.
When that didn't work, firefighter Da-
vid Sutton crawled in the dangerous, vile
air pipe to grab the kitten.
"At first the kitten did not want to be


rescued. She clawed and bit at my glove,"
he said.
After an hour, the kitten was saved at
4:30 p.m.
Once brought to the surface, the dis-
tressed animal was greeted with applause
and shouts of joy from the crowd that
gathered to watch the firefighter's efforts
to save her.
"In all my 20 years, this case is by far the
most challenging cat rescue," Lane said.
"Even though we are not in the animal
services business, we serve the public, and
this was a life that needed to be saved."
How the cat got in the drainage pipe is
still a mystery, he said.
Walmart employee Diane Brault ad-
opted the kitten on the spot and agreed
to quarantine her for 10 days as a precau-
tion.
"I felt so bad for the kitten that I just
wanted to take her home and take care of
her," she said.
The kitten's new name is Wallie, and she
is rcq. . r. .1l in much better condition.
"We gave her the name Wallie because
she was found in the Walmart parking lot,"
Brault said with a smile on her face.


Students get shot at songwriting


* THE SONGBLOOM PHONE APP LETS
USERS UPLOAD THEIR OWN TRACKS.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

A new iPhone application developed by a UF
graduate is making it possible for even those who
don't know the difference between a C-note and a
G-note to write the next hit song.
And for UF students to win some cash.
The application, called Songbloom, was cre-
ated by UF agriculture alumnus Amaury Garcia,
34, and is based off a music collaboration site of
the same name.
The idea behind Songbloom is for musicians to
upload tracks over a skeleton track that provides
structure. From there, musicians can upload their
own guitar, bass, keyboard and vocal tracks for
a song.
One submission is chosen for each instrument
for a pair of songs that are released each month in
two categories - rock and hip-hop.


The application mimics the website's system,
but instead of users submitting recordings of
themselves playing an instrument, users sing the
melody or part for the song they think up.
"Non-musicians still have music in them."
Garcia said. "They can still interpret melody, just
not through an instrument."
The tracks are then recorded with the real in-
strument by a studio musician.
Until Nov. 27, two current
Songbloom projects are taking
submissions for lead vocals. If
a UF student downloads the iP-
hone application and submits a
winning track, he or she will re-
ceive a $200 prize.
The songs are judged by Gar-
cia and his staff, including the
Garcia studio musicians and engineers.
The tracks don't need to be overly fancy or
technical to be selected, he said.
"It's purely content and feel of the audio that's
submitted," Garcia said. "It's how well it suits the
song and how much life it gives the song."

Expo shows off


world cultures

By LUKE GAVIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Monday morning was the opening of the week-
long World Humanities Expo at Santa Fe College,
where exhibits speakers, food and performances give
visitors a glimpse of cultures from around the world.
The large activity room is sectioned into areas,
with Asia, Latin America, the U.S., Africa, Europe
and world religions each getting a display with a va-
riety of student-created exhibits, including models,
pictures, paintings and other creative displays.
Rafael Ramos, a 20-year-old English major at SFC,
said he liked the diversity of the projects.
"I think it's just to expose people more to different
cultures," Ramos said. "By doing that, they help to
prevent prejudices because they give people an un-
derstanding of what other cultures might be think-
ing."
Event organizer William Little,
Multicultural chairman of the Humanities and
Affairs' Foreign Languages Department at
Santa Fe, said the main purpose of
the expo is to inspire, educate and entertain.
"My sense is that people don't have a real feeling
9 for what the humanities are," Little said. "So this is
meant to concentrate what they are."
Little said the displays are all graded projects cre-
ated by Santa Fe students in humanities classes, and
he said this is the seventh year for the expo but the
first year it has been opened up to the local commu-
nity.
Little said the rest of the week will feature promi-
nent speakers such as Dr. Philip Wilhliams, director
of Latin American studies at UF, and Nobuho Naga-
Max Reed/Alligator Staff sawa, an international artist and professor at Stony
Jyotir Kulmacz feeds his 3-month-old daughter Maya while looking Brook University.
The expo is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in room
at the work of Santa Fe College students on Monday. R-0The expo is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 1. room

and diversifying fuel sources, Meale said.
The company that is developing the
plant, American Renewables, has been un-
derway on the project since 2007 with plans
to create renewable _ i,.-i - - and jobs, said
Josh Levine, project manager for American
Renewables.
"We're very excited about the judge's
decision and are moving along d d,._ i-, i
Levine said. "We are hoping to begin con-
struction early next year, which will allow
us to finish by 2013."
The ,_ ,. _ - - will be sold to Gainesville
Regional Utilities under a 30-year power
purchase agreement. Diversifying fuel
sources is one of the greatest benefits,


Levine said. GRU has been criticized by
bond rating agencies for not having enough
fuel diversity in the past.
Since the new plant will diversify the
fuel sources, it will increase the financial li-
ability of GRU, Levine said.
Unlike other forms of renewable en-
ergy that require the wind
Local to be blowing or the sun to
News be shining, Levine said, this
plant can produce _._',- _
24/7.
The plant will also create jobs. The com-
pany will employ 44 individuals directly
and could create up to 700 jobs for the re-
gion - anything from hotels and restau-
rants to the people that will be making the
tires for the trucks, Levine said.
Former Mayor Thomas Bussing, the
intervener in the hearing, disagrees with


Levine and said that the plant will be a fi-
nancial and environmental disaster.
The total cost of the contract is estimat-
ed to be more than $2 billion, Bussing said,
making the power much more expensive
than other forms of ,i'-, - .
Increased electricity rates, increased
pollution and emission of dioxins are not
something that Gainesville needs, he said.
Instead, he said the next step could be
taking the case to the citing board.
"This is merely a recommendation to
the power plant citing board, and perhaps
they will see that this is a flawed decision
and remand it for improvement," he said.
For now, the GREC group is trying to
get on the Cabinet's agenda for the Dec. 7
meeting. If they are successful, they hope to
have a site certification by early December,
Levine said.


iPad, accessories cost about $245 less than printing


IPADS, from page 1


In a memo she sent out Oct. 20, she estimated that, on average,
the cost of paper agendas is $785 annually for each commissioner.
Purchasing a 16GB iPad with a protective case and extra chargers
would cost $540 - that's $245 less than the paper agendas.
The idea to use the new technology started when Rountree
brought her birthday present into work.
Lila Stewart, a strategic planner for the city, had been working
to make the transition from paper to digital since she started work-
ing for the city three years ago. When she saw Rountree showing
off her iPad, she thought the new technology might be an interest-
ing way to accomplish her paperless goal.
Stewart said that she later read a case study in the Alliance for
Innovation Newsletter showing that the introduction of iPads
into local governments allowed for convenience, environmental
friendliness and cost efhciency.
She forwarded the article to Rountree and the idea took off.


But the city commission isn't the first board in Gainesville to
implement this type of paperless system.
The UF Board of Trustees started a similar system nearly five
years ago, but with laptops instead of iPads.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said that for
the 13 members of the board, printing agendas
just didn't make sense.
Rountree said that the city tried laptops but
had issues with the costs and size, and the lap-
tops would have obstructed the commissioners
microphones at meetings.
"The convenience of the iPad is what sold
Orlando it - convenience and 1r 'll, "' Rountree
said.
When her husband found out that the city was paying for the
commissioners' iPads, Rountree said he wanted to know if that
meant she would get a new one and he could have hers.
"I said, 'No,'" she said with a laugh.


Study shows


Twitter gives


GPA boost

H IT ALSO INCREASES THE
LIKELIHOOD OF GRADUATING.

By CHELSEA HULL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students who are social-networking
savvy may be ahead of the academic
curve.
In a recent study, UF psychology alum-
nus Reynol Junco found that Twitter in-
creases grade point averages as well as
students' likelihood to stay at a single uni-
versity until graduation.
The study was performed at Lock Ha-
ven University in Pennsylvania, where
Junco is an assistant professor.
He took a group of 125 students who
did not previously use Twitter from a
freshman seminar for pre-health profes-
sional majors and split them into two
groups, introducing one group to the 140-
character world of Twitter.
Junco spoke to other professors about
using social media in their classes and
found that professors favored Twitter over
other networking sites because there was
less of a social requirement.
"With Twitter, you can be
connected to any country just
by typing something into a
search field."
Jessica Annett
UF senior

While in these courses, students were
able to tweet to complete homework and
extra credit assignments.
Junco admitted that he thought Twit-
ter would help students socially but not
academically. However, after one semes-
ter, students using Twitter had an average
grade point average of 2.8 - 0.5 points
higher than non-users.
Students were also given a pretest to
measure engagement - their level of in-
volvement and attachment to the universi-
ty - before the Twitter experiment began.
On the post-test, Twitter users showed
increased engagement, which Junco said
means they are much more committed to
the university.
"Engagement is the magic bullet of stu-
dent success," Junco said. "You have to en-
gage students early in their college career
to keep them connected to the institution
and to keep them successful."
Jessica Annett, a UF English and Span-
ish senior, said that through Twitter she
is exposed to conversational and sponta-
neous dialogue from Spanish speakers in
other countries.
"Things like slang and abbreviations
are never taught in classrooms and hard
to find if you aren't immersed in the cul-
ture," she said. "With Twitter, you can be
connected to any country just by typing
something into a search field."

Editorial

Strip down

Airport procedures

violate civil liberties

S" don't Tase me, bro" finally has a sister slogan.
After refusing a full-body scan and then refus-
" D ing a full-body pat down, a 31-year-old California
man was thrown out of San Diego's airport Saturday after say-
ing, "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested."
John Tyner's "Don't touch my junk" tagline had already
gone viral by Monday morning courtesy of a cell phone video,
prompting quick response from Transportation Security Ad-
ministration officials to defend its already-controversial screen-
ing methods.
The new pat down rules began Oct. 28 as an alternative to
the already-deemed intrusive full-body scanners that have been
called "virtual strip searches" by many.
The pat-down procedure that Tyner refused involves a same-
sex airport official conducting a "sliding hand motion" search
of the passenger's body, including the groin and breast area.
TSA and the Department of Homeland Security have re-
peatedly defended the full-body scanners that can peer under
clothes as "necessary" to ensure safety, and the pat-down mea-
sures, officials said, "serve an important goal."
After refusing to be violated virtually and physically by
airport officials, Tyner said he now faces a $10,000 fine for his
"junk" ordeal.
And when any man or woman can face a multi-thousand-
dollar lawsuit because he or she refused to be violated by an air-
port official or be virtually strip-searched, something is wrong.
Defending the new pat-down procedures, U.S. Secretary of
Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said the pat downs, which
have been labeled as "groping" and "inappropriate" by airplane
passengers across the country, protect passenger safety.
But as Americans grapple with the inevitable relinquishing
of civil liberties in the name of "safety" today as the holiday
season quickly approaches, it becomes clear that no such search
method would have discovered the series of printer bombs sent
from Yemen in late October.
The main question Americans face is not one of ultimate
safety - as the Yemen-originated printer bombs did not have
to pass through an intrusive pat down - but rather: How many
civil liberties are we willing to relinquish for the government to
tell us we're finally safe?
We strongly recognize that the threat of terrorism is ever-
present as the series of printer bombs has shown us, but we
also agree that TSA's pat-down procedures and virtually strip
searching full-body scans do little if anything to solve terror-
ism's increasingly intelligent methods.
Tyner said it best Saturday morning when he told airport of-
ficials, "I don't understand how a sexual assault can be made a
condition of my flying."
As soon as we become comfortable with legal "sexual as-
saults," as Tyner described it, we open the dubious doors to
routine full strip searches in the name of "safety."
In response to Tyner's refusal Saturday, TSA Chief John Pis-
tole said the new measures provide the "best possible technol-
, . " to detect explosives. Yet Pistole notably disregarded the
inability of the new measures to find and discover such bombs
as the ones sent from Yemen.
Stand up for your rights, Gators. Sexual assault should not
be a requirement for flying. Or you can always report those dis-
sidents who want to keep their civil liberties for thoughtcrime.
And, oh yeah, don't touch my junk.

Biomass plant to use ancient technology


Just like they do with old newspapers and aluminum
cans, Gainesville residents should start to recycle
their logic into something more eco-friendly.
Maybe everyone who opposes the idea of burning
wood to help save the environment can turn their old,
venerated logic into GreenSpeak we can use to fertilize
local gardens.
Turning facts into fertilizer is almost as eco-friendly
as burning wood to clean the air.
The production of thousands of metric tons of
Gainesville GreenSpeak holds as much promise as the
biomass power plant, and it will cost hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars less than planning a way to power the
future using caveman technology.
Local politicians and the leadership at Gainesville
Regional Utilities have already been working on the
widespread production of all the GreenSpeak they can
reasonably spew forth, setting an excellent example for
the rest of us.
GRU leased 131 acres and the operation of a taxpay-
er-built billion dollar wood-burning power plant to a
private company from the Northeast at the bargain-
basement price of $100 a year.
In the contract our local politicians approved, most
of the details were blacked out, getting rid of all that
messy "accountability" stuff GRU is always trying to
sidestep.
Even the rosiest estimates have our utility rates sky-
rocketing once we build this.
The only way this won't be the single worst finan-
cial decision Gainesville has ever made will be if federal
regulations change in the future to punish coal-burning
power plants.


The GreenSpeak coming from
our elected officials, though, is all
the information we will need in or-
der to make a sound decision.
Pumping an average of 1.4 mil-
lion gallons a day from the Lower
Tommy Maple Santa Fe River for the plant's cool-
letters@alligatororg ing tower is fine. We have an iron-
clad promise that "some" of the
water used will be reclaimed water after seven years or
so.
Having 130 diesel trucks barreling down the road
every day an average of 52 miles away (and back) filled
with tons of wood is actually the most sustainable thing
we could do.
Since we are relying on Stone Age technology, any-
way, maybe we can equip all the trucks with Flintstones-
style foot brakes.
The air around town will be full of particulates and
other toxic crap, but who doesn't love the nostalgic and
woodsy smell of a campfire?
Plenty of jobs will be created from the hundreds of
workers emptying forest floors to the small armada of
public relations flacks we'll need in order to keep con-
vincing everyone a power plant built in the 21st cen-
tury should use technology developed when the woolly
mammoth was still around.
The options for clean energy are all imperfect in their
own way, and we all have to do our part to conserve and
simply live differently in order to construct a cleaner
future.

ately turns without warning.
I don't have a horn, so short of throwing
things at them from my bike, I, like most
cyclists, have no way to get the attention of
a driver with the windows rolled up.


If the University Police wants there to
be fewer accidents, I'd suggest they place
signs at the entrances to campus asking
drivers to watch out for their two-wheeled
friends when turning and to yield to bicy-
clists trying to enter traffic just like cars are
required to do for buses.
Gainesville prides itself on regularly be-
ing ranked as one of the friendliest cities
in the nation to cyclists thanks to having
segregated bike lanes, numerous municipal
bike racks and a Bicycle Pedestrian Advi-
sory Board that works with the City Com-
mission.
Now it's up to the law enforcement as
well as cyclists to make it one of the safest
cities as well.

Facebook breakups peak before Christmas, on Mondays


Students concerned their relationships are on the rocks and
could end soon can gain some insight from a study of Fa-
cebook statuses.
A new graphic circulating on the Internet charts the use of
the phrases "breakup" and "broken up" in Facebook status up-
dates to show what time of the year couples split.
David McCandless, a London-based writer and designer
who focuses on data journalism and information design, along
with colleague Lee Bryon, created the data visualization in 2008
by scraping 10,000 Facebook status updates for data.
McCandless exhibited the graphic during a July TED (Tech-
. .1... Entertainment, Design) Conference on data visualiza-
tion.
He described the graph to the audience, saying, "People
clearing out for Spring Break, coming out of very bad week-
ends on Monday, being single over the summer. And then the
lowest day of the year, of course: Christmas Day. Who would
do that?"


Kaitlin Ek
UWire


The graphic shows spikes in break-
ups after Valentine's Day and in the two
weeks before Christmas.
There was also a significant spike on


April Fool's Day.
Jessica Semin, a freshman pre-nursing student at U. Ne-
braska-Lincoln, said she thinks people may break up more fre-
quently in the weeks before Christmas because of winter break
for college students.
"Maybe since people are with their friends, and not togeth-
er," she said.
"During Christmas in college, students go back home and
see old friends."
Jesse Barlean, a sophomore at UNL, had a different theory.
"I was actually just talking about this with my friends," he
said.
"We thought people break up over Christmas and stay bro-
ken up until Valentine's Day because they don't want to buy


gifts."
He thought Spring Break breakups were also explainable.
"No one wants a girlfriend for Spring Break," he said.
Semin said that the Monday breakup spikes seemed likely
to her.
"Mondays are never a good day for anyone. And it's com-
ing off a weekend," she said, adding that sometimes couples
have fights over weekend events.
Barlean agreed, saying, "People have bad Mondays."
As for April Fool's Day, Barlean doubts that more couples
actually split up on that day.
"On April Fool's Day, maybe it's just a joke," he said.
During his TED talk, McCandless uses his visualization as
an example of the wealth of data available to researchers on the
Internet.
"There's a titanic amount of data out there," he said. "It's
unprecedented."

'Smokeout' urges quitting


* EVENTS WILL BE HELD ON
CAMPUS ALL WEEK.

By MINA RADMAN
Alligator Writer

Students, faculty and staff are en-
couraged to put out their cigarettes this
week.
Starting Tuesday, GatorWell and the
American Medical Student Association
will host a variety of events across cam-
pus this week to raise awareness about
the dangers of tobacco use and provide
resources for those who want to quit.
"The goal is typically to raise aware-
ness," said Jane Emmeree, a "quit
coach" at GatorWell. "We always try
to do something locally in conjunction
with the national event."
These events mark the 35th annual
Great American Smokeout, held nation-
wide by the American Cancer Society,


which encourages smokers to pick a day
to quit.
"We ask them to consider quitting
again, if not by the day of smokeout,
then by the first of the year," Emmeree
said.
UF has maintained a tobacco-free
campus policy since July, in which to-
bacco use is prohibited across campus.
The Office of Student Activities and
Involvement addresses students who
don't comply with the policy, while em-
ployees' immediate supervisors address
any issues.
On The GatorWell Health
Campus Hut will have health re-
source materials Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday at the Hub,
the Southwest Recreation Center, the
Plaza of the Americas and the Reitz
Union Colonnade.
AMSA will be tabling on the Plaza of
the Americas Thursday with additional
resource materials.


NATIONAL

Court upholds in-state


tuition for immigrants


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


SAN FRANCISCO - The California
Supreme Court ruled Monday that some
illegal immigrants are entitled to the same
tuition breaks offered to in-state high school
students to attend public colleges and uni-
versities.
While the ruling applies only to Califor-
nia, the case was closely watched nationally
because nine other states including New
York and Texas have similar laws.
Republican congressmen Lamar S. Smith
of Texas and Steve King of Iowa filed a so-
called friends of the court brief urging that
illegal immigrants be denied the reduced
rate.
The lawsuit was part of a broader legal
assault led by the immigration legal scholar
Kris Kobach, who has filed numerous cases
across the country seeking to restrict the
rights, .*, Il.o 'I immigrants.
A unanimous state Supreme Court, led
by politically conservative Justice Ming
Chin, said the California provision was con-
stitutional because U.S. residents also had


access to the reduced rates.
The California Legislature passed the
controversial measure in 2001 that allowed
any student regardless of immigration sta-
tus who attended a California high school
for at least three years and graduated to
qualify for in-state tuition at the state's col-
leges universities. In-state
tuition saves each state
college student about
$11,000 a year and each
University of California
student about $23,000 a
year.
The state law also re-
Kobach quires the illegal immi-
grants applying for the
in-state tuition to swear they will attempt to
become U.S. citizens. The applicants are still
barred from receiving federal financial aid.
"Through their hard work and persever-
ance, these students have earned the op-
portunity to attend UC," said University of
Cahlifornia president Mark G. Yudof. "Their
accomplishments should not be disregard-
ed or their futures jeopardized."

Gators look to use press to beat big Buckeyes team


* UF HOSTS OHIO STATE
TONIGHT AT 6.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org

For weeks the Gators have been
endorsing their increased physical-
ity.
Tonight they'll face their first real
test.
After three games of feasting on
inferior competition, Florida's big
men will be challenged when they
square off against No. 4 Ohio State
at 6 in the O'Connell Center.
"They're big, they have a lot of
size, and they're really athletic," se-
nior Alex Tyus said. "It's definitely
going to be a challenge for us."
Tyus and seniors Vernon Mack-
lin and Chandler Parsons comprise
a frontcourt that led No. 9 UF to a
36-22 rebounding edge in its season
opener against UNC-Wilmington,
but they will face significantly stron-
ger competition from OSU.
The average Seahawks starter
was 6-foot-5, 195 pounds, while the
Buckeyes starters stand at an aver-
age of 6-foot-6, 233 pounds.
Ohio State put that advantage
on display in its opening game, out-
rebounding North Carolina A&T by
an astounding 55-17 margin on its
way to a 102-61 victory.
"I think (Ohio State) has the po-


tential to be one of the best rebound-
ing teams in the :. .,,r "saidcoach
Billy Donovan, whose average start-
er is 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds. "They
obviously have a lot of length and
size."
A great deal of that rebounding
figures to come from freshman Jared


Sullinger, a highly-touted recruit
who was the consensus No. 1 center
in his class.
The 6-foot-9, 280-pound monster
is a quality passer and has a strong
face-up game to compliment his
dominant post presence.
"He has really good moves and


he keeps his composure," Tyus said
of Sullinger. "He doesn't play like a
freshman."
One way the Gators hope to
counter the Buckeyes' bulk is by
playing an up-tempo style and com-
ing at them with a full-court press.
Florida believes that it can tire out

the Ohio State starters if it can keep
them out of their normal offensive
sets and force them to run the floor.
"With their size, we'd rather take
our chances up there than wait-
ing for them to come up in the half
court," junior Erving Walker said.
"It's our style versus their style, and
we want our style to win out."
The Gators are also hoping that
the press will be able to generate
turnovers against an Ohio State
team that usually operates without
a traditional point guard.
With the loss of Evan Turner to
the NBA, the Buckeyes have had to
hand the role of primary ball-han-
dler over to junior William Buford,
who has played mostly off the ball
in his OSU career.
"I think he's really a two-guard,"
sophomore Kenny Boynton said.
"We definitely have to put pressure
on him and try to turn him over."
The only true point guard on the
roster is freshman Aaron Craft, who
recorded nine assists in 22 minutes
during OSU's opener.
UF will be looking to rattle Craft
and the rest of Ohio State's top-
ranked recruiting class with relent-
less pressure and deafening crowd
noise.
"For their freshman this will
be their first time playing in a big
game," Boynton said. "I think we
definitely could get to them with our
crowd and our intensity."


Butler beats former team


to earn 100th career win


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

In 2005 Amanda Butler notched her
first career victory as the head coach of
the Charlotte 49ers. On Monday night,
she reached another milestone against
that very same team.
The Gators' 76-70 victory against
Charlotte (1-1) in the second round of the
Preseason Women's NIT gave Butler her
100th career win.
"There is absolutely nothing bitter
about winning, regardless of who you're
playing against," Butler said. "I'm just


thankful to have coached as many good
players as I have to reach that mile-
stone."
The Gators employed
O the same starting lineup
used against UCF in the
opener featuring new-
Women's comer Lanita Bartley at
point guard and veteran
Basketball Jordan Jones at shooting
guard. Bartley's second
start in the orange and blue started much
like the previous left off. She drove to the
basket early and often, grabbed a couple

Addazio, Brantley expected


to return despite criticism


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligator org


Gators fans could be welcoming
back some familiar faces next season.
Despite rumors and criticism, coach
Urban Meyer said Monday he believes
UF offensive coordinator Steve Add-
azio will be back calling plays next sea-
son.
And quarterback John Brantley dis-
pelled rumors that he was thinking
about transferring from Florida.
Addazio has received much of the
blame for the offense's struggles. The
Gators are currently ranked 82nd in to-
tal offense.


And if Addazio is the most frequent
name when discussing the offense's
failures, Brantley isn't far behind.
He has thrown eight touchdowns
and seven interceptions in his first sea-
son as Florida's start-
ing quarterback.
His inability to run
the option has led to
a decrease min play-
ing time as he is now
splitting time with
Addazio two other quarter-
backs. But Brantley
denied ever contemplating a transfer
from Gaminesville.

Meyer, Pouncey point toward energy as reason for offense's struggles


FOOTBALL, from page 13


"My dad called me last weekend right when he
landed back from Nashville (Tenn.)," Brantley said.
"He didn't know what was going on, and I had no idea
either. I haven't said anything to him about that. He
has never said anything to me about that. Those are
just all rumors."
Looking for energy on offense: Florida's offense
hasn't just lost three first-rounders in the last two NFL
Drafts. Evidently, it's missing something else.
On Monday, Meyer pointed toward a lack of energy
as one of the offense's problems.
"I don't see an offense full of life," he said. "I don't
see a lot of,- i,.-, - . That's one thing as a head coach that
concerns me. That's all personnel-based and success-
based. And you try to recruit those types of personali-
ties (that bring , i,._- - )."

"I don't see an offense full of life. I don't see
a lot of energy. That's one thing as a head
coach that concerns me. That's all personnel-
based and success-based. And you try to
recruit those types of personalities (that bring
energy)."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

The offense is averaging about 29 points per game
(50th in the nation), and Brantley is the third-worst
rated passer in the conference.
Meyer said dual-threat quarterback Jordan Reed's
role may expand Saturday to help bring some life to
the group.
"[Reed] does provide some i,,..... " Meyer said.
"Just the way he plays. You see the ,- ,.', -_ level, which
is obviously critical at the center of the offense."
The freshman completed three of seven passes
against South Carolina, one of them for a touchdown.
But so far the i_ i,.- - - provided by players such as
Tim Tebow, Maurkice Pouncey, Percy Harvin, Aaron
Hernandez and Riley Cooper has not been matched by
this season's unit.
"You lose two first-rounders on offense and a lot
of great players playing in the NFL now," center Mike
Pouncey said. "You lose a lot of ,_i,._ - - and emotion
toward the game. Guys that really show while they are
playing that they love it and they bring other guys up
around them. I think that's where we were hurting all
year."
Easley back practicing with team: Freshman Do-
minique Easley was not on UF's travel roster for the
Vanderbilt game and his status with the team was in
doubt.
But Easley is practicing with the team again as of
Monday, according to Meyer.
The defensive tackle has recorded three tackles in
four games this season. He arrived to Florida as a five-
star recruit, according to Rivals.com.

Florida's rough season just part of college football's revolving cycle


Few moments of UF's beat-
down loss to South Carolina
could be described as poet-
ic, but there was at least one.
Early in the fourth quarter,
Florida's band struck up Cold-
play's "Viva La Vida." The Gators
trailed 29-7 and had just turned
the ball over on downs, and it
would've been hard to choose a
more appropriate song thanks to
the first line:
"I used to rule the world..."
And that summed up exactly
how most of the 90,885 watch-
ing Florida get pummeled by
South Carolina must have felt at
that moment. Remember when
Tim Tebow was running around
in The Swamp and a trip to the
Southeastern Conference Cham-
pionship felt like a birthright?
Saturday night was a long way


from there.
By then, it was clear there
would be no SEC title, and the re-
ality of watching Steve Spurrier's
boys romp in The Swamp had set
in.
It effectively meant the end of
the season, and that's something
Gators fans haven't felt in quite
a while. In the last rough year,
2007, Florida still had Tebow's
Heisman Trophy campaign to
look forward to.
Even in somewhat of a rebuild-
ing year, it was a shock.
But please, hold the tears.
This is karma.
No one gets to win all the time.
Teams have to suck at least occa-
sionally for the world to stay bal-
anced.
Sometimes they have a pitiful
offense and lose a lot.


Some-
times they
get you-
know-what-
slapped by
Mike McCall the Game-
McCallin' It cocks.
Like I See It W h a t
mmccall@alligatororg goes around
Twitter @McCalhinIt c o m e s
around, and
Gators fans were due for some
bad moments.
So the powers that be had them
lose to the team that ruined last
season (Alabama) and then three
former Florida coaches: LSU's Bil-
ly Gonzalez, Mississippi State's
Dan Mullen and South Carolina's
Spurrier - men who helped set
the standard for exciting UF of-
fenses that this year's team fell so
frustratingly far short of.


And the loss to the Gamecocks
was a throwback to the win that
started it all. Run back the open-
ing kick and get blown out?
Sounds like Ohio State in 2006.
Meanwhile, they have to sit
and watch Cam Newton guide
Auburn to an 11-0 start and likely
lock up a Heisman Trophy. They
have to dream about what life
would be like if Newton was still
in Gainesville.
These aren't coincidences.
They're what had to happen, and
experiencing this is what makes
true fans.
The delirious run of Florida
athletics from 2006-09 was so
much sweeter for those who suf-
fered through down seasons,
much like how watching my fa-
vorite school win back-to-back
conference titles was more special


after seeing just three wins in a
two-year period.
People who -nrl led at UF in
the fall of 2006 and graduated
on time oopss) left having seen a
total of three national champion-
ships, a Heisman and an unde-
feated regular season.
Life isn't supposed to work
that way. For those who showed
up in Gainesville this year: bad
timing. You arrived for the pay-
back phase.
And based on the wild success
of years past, it can't be over yet.
True, a trip to Atlanta is still
possible for the Chick-fil-A Bowl,
but that wouldn't be the karmic
cherry atop this season.
Three bowls match up the SEC
and Big Ten, and Illinois is a win
away from being bowl-eligible.
ZOOOOOOOOKI


Jones hit a three to give UF decisive lead


WOMEN'S HOOPS, from page 13

of steals off inbounds plays and sparked the Gators
to a 12-3 lead in the first four minutes.
But it was the play of Jones that would propel
the Gators to a second straight victory and berth in
the semifinals of the NIT. Jones had a team-high 19
points on a number of clutch shots, including a 3-of-
5 showing from beyond the arc.
"[Jaterra Bonds] led us in the first game, and
then I led us this game, but next game is going to
be someone else," Jones said. "It's a different person
stepping up each game, and that makes our jobs a
lot easier."
After substituting into a smaller lineup featur-
ing freshmen Brittany Shine, Deaundra Young and
Bonds, the Gators (2-0) extended their lead to 21-7
thanks to the fast tempo Butler and Co. have prom-
ised.
Shine showed off her best John Wall dance moves
before the game and the impersonation carried over
into her performance on the floor. She drained a
three on a fast break then grabbed a long pass over
the defense for an easy layup after a Charlotte miss.
Shine totaled nine points in just two minutes to
propel the Gators to a 14-point lead.
"I just tried to be a little sparkplug out there,"
Shine said. "I just try to bring energy every time I
get in [the game]."
But Charlotte fought back, consistently beating
the interior of UF's defense with dribble penetration
en route to 26 points in the paint in the first half.
Entering the locker rooms, UF's lead was down to a
slim four points.


After the break, Charlotte's defense began forcing
the issue, bringing two and three defenders with a
full-court press. The teams traded baskets for much
of the second half with neither dominating the ac-
tion.
Just 6:55 into the second half, Charlotte took
its first lead since the opening minutes. But Jones
stepped up for the Gators once again.
She drained a crucial three-pointer that put UF
up 53-51 - a lead it wouldn't relinquish the rest of
the way.

"As long as we keep fighting and that ef-
fort stays consistent like that then I feel
good about our chances."
Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach


But the game once again was determined in the
final minutes. Center Azania Stewart snatched two
key boards and made two free throws in that time
to add to her double-double totals of 13 points and
10 rebounds.
"As long as we keep fighting and that effort stays
consistent like that, then I feel good about our chanc-
es," Butler said. "I didn't think we played consistent-
ly with toughness until it really, really mattered.
"When you can win ugly, and when you grind it
out against a good team like that you've got to walk
away feeling really good and confident."
Florida's next game will be in the semifinals on
Thursday at 8 p.m. against DePaul.

Texas RB calls it quits after multiple concussions


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AUSTIN, Texas - Texas sophomore
running back Tre' Newton, son of former
Dallas Cowboys lineman Nate Newton,
announced Monday that he is giving up
-... rl: : II after several concussions over his
college and high school careers.
Newton missed last week's loss to Okla-
homa State after sustaining a concussion
in a loss to Kansas State on Nov. 6. Team
doctors advised him to give up football to
avoid long-term problems, Newton said.
Newton said the decision to quit football
was his, but also said his father told him:
"You have to think about the future because
- ...rl: : II is going to end someday."
"As much as I love -:..r -l:. 11 this is one of


the hardest decisions of my life," Newton
said. "[But] -...rl: . II isn't forever."
Newton also sustained a concussion in
2009, but was still Texas' leading rusher
that season with 552 yards. He had rushed
for 229 yards and three touchdowns this
season.
Newton said he had more than one
concussion in high school. He will stay on
scholarship and work to finish his degree in
corporate communications.
"He's earned his scholarship here,"
coach Mack Brown said. "He's a great
young man and leader."
Newton said he doesn't remember the
play on which he got hurt against Kansas
State. He did not practice last week and
met with team doctors and his family a few


hours before the Oklahoma State game to
make his final decision.
Brown said Newton will remain close
to the team and could help coach running
backs next season.
"We try to get them
in the mainstream [of the
program] to rebuild their
identity. Your concern you
have is your friends won't
look at you the same way.
You were a guy who could
Newton help them win, now you
can't do that anymore,"
Brown said.
Newton welcomed the chance to stay
with his teammates, offering to help any-
way he can "even if it's just running to give


somebody water."
Texas senior wide receiver James Kirk-
endoll said the team didn't know of New-
ton's decision until Monday morning.
"He's a true teammate and a great foot-
ball player," Kirkendoll said. "It's one of
the tough things you have to deal with in
this sport."
With Newton's career now over and
junior Foswhitt Whittaker nursing a sore
shoulder, junior Cody Johnson is listed
as the starter for Saturday's game against
Florida Atlantic (4-5). Johnson leads Texas
(4-6) with 361 yards and five touchdowns.
Texas must beat Florida Atlantic and
Texas A&M to become bowl eligible and
avoid the Longhorns' first losing season
since 1997.

Dolphins place Pennington on IR, sign Ramsey


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DAVIE - Chad Pennington's latest shoulder
injury is "long-term," but Chad Henne might
be available for Thursday night's game against
the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins coach Tony
Sparano said Monday.
The Dolphins signed veteran Patrick Ramsey
on Monday and placed Pennington on injured
reserve. On his first play of the season Sunday
against the Tennessee Titans, Pennington re-in-
jured his right shoulder, which has already under-
gone surgery three times.
Third-string quarterback Tyler Thigpen is the
most likely starter against the Bears after finishing
Sunday's victory over Tennessee when injuries
sidelined Miami's top two quarterbacks.
Injury issues weren't limited to quarterback.
Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long hurt his shoulder,
and his availability is uncertain. Like Long, AFC
sack leader Cameron Wake (hip) and safety Chris
Clemons (groin) finished Sunday's game on the
bench.
"We have a lot of guys bumped up right now,"
Sparano said. "We're sorting through it all."
As Sparano spoke, Henne was in the training
room being treated for a left knee injury that side-


lined him in the third quarter.
Turnaround time is brief for the Dolphins (5-4),
with only a single practice - today - between
games. That makes it less likely Henne will be able
to recover enough to start, but Sparano was non-
committal.
"We'll see. Right now we are day to day," he
said. "Tyler will be ready, depending on what
Chad Henne does this week."
"We have a lot of guys bumped up
right now. We're sorting through it all."
Tony Sparano
Miami coach

Thigpen entered Sunday's game in the fourth
quarter and led an 85-yard touchdown drive that
sealed the 29-17 win. He went 4 for 6 for 64 yards
and a score, a remarkably polished performance
considering he has been mostly a spectator at
practice this season.
"As a No. 3, that's what it is - you don't get
any reps," Thigpen said. "The No. 1 gets about
80 percent, and the 2 gets about 20 percent of the
reps. But the 3 has to just sit back there and men-
tally rep every play."

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 5Max Reed / Alligator StaffJyotir Kulmacz feeds his 3-month-old daughter Maya while looking at the work of Santa Fe College students on Monday. By LUKE GAVINAlligator Contributing Writer Monday morning was the opening of the weeklong World Humanities Expo at Santa Fe College, where exhibits, speakers, food and performances give visitors a glimpse of cultures from around the world. The large activity room is sectioned into areas, with Asia, Latin America, the U.S., Africa, Europe and world religions each getting a display with a variety of student-created exhibits, including models, pictures, paintings and other creative displays. Rafael Ramos, a 20-year-old English major at SFC, said he liked the diversity of the projects. “I think it’s just to expose people more to different cultures,” Ramos said. “By doing that, they help to prevent prejudices because they give people an understanding of what other cultures might be thinking.” Event organizer William Little, chairman of the Humanities and Foreign Languages Department at Santa Fe, said the main purpose of the expo is to inspire, educate and entertain. “My sense is that people don’t have a real feeling for what the humanities are,” Little said. “So this is meant to concentrate what they are.” Little said the displays are all graded projects created by Santa Fe students in humanities classes, and he said this is the seventh year for the expo but the nity. Little said the rest of the week will feature prominent speakers such as Dr. Philip Williams, director of Latin American studies at UF, and Nobuho Nagasawa, an international artist and professor at Stony Brook University. The expo is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in room R-01.Expo shows off world cultures IT ALSO INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD OF GRADUATING.By CHELSEA HULLAlligator Contributing Writer Students who are social-networking savvy may be ahead of the academic curve. In a recent study, UF psychology alumnus Reynol Junco found that Twitter increases grade point averages as well as students’ likelihood to stay at a single university until graduation. The study was performed at Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania, where Junco is an assistant professor. He took a group of 125 students who did not previously use Twitter from a freshman seminar for pre-health professional majors and split them into two groups, introducing one group to the 140character world of Twitter. Junco spoke to other professors about using social media in their classes and found that professors favored Twitter over other networking sites because there was less of a social requirement. While in these courses, students were able to tweet to complete homework and extra credit assignments. Junco admitted that he thought Twitter would help students socially but not academically. However, after one semester, students using Twitter had an average grade point average of 2.8 — 0.5 points higher than non-users. Students were also given a pretest to measure engagement — their level of involvement and attachment to the university — before the Twitter experiment began. On the post-test, Twitter users showed increased engagement, which Junco said means they are much more committed to the university. “Engagement is the magic bullet of student success,” Junco said. “You have to engage students early in their college career to keep them connected to the institution and to keep them successful.” Jessica Annett, a UF English and Spanish senior, said that through Twitter she is exposed to conversational and spontaneous dialogue from Spanish speakers in other countries. “Things like slang and abbreviations are never taught in classrooms and hard ture,” she said. “With Twitter, you can be connected to any country just by typing Study shows Twitter gives GPA boost iPad, accessories cost about $245 less than printingIn a memo she sent out Oct. 20, she estimated that, on average, the cost of paper agendas is $785 annually for each commissioner. Purchasing a 16GB iPad with a protective case and extra chargers would cost $540 — that’s $245 less than the paper agendas. The idea to use the new technology started when Rountree brought her birthday present into work. Lila Stewart, a strategic planner for the city, had been working to make the transition from paper to digital since she started working for the city three years ago. When she saw Rountree showing off her iPad, she thought the new technology might be an interesting way to accomplish her paperless goal. Stewart said that she later read a case study in the Alliance for Innovation Newsletter showing that the introduction of iPads into local governments allowed for convenience, environmental She forwarded the article to Rountree and the idea took off. implement this type of paperless system. years ago, but with laptops instead of iPads. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said that for the 13 members of the board, printing agendas just didn’t make sense. Rountree said that the city tried laptops but had issues with the costs and size, and the laptops would have obstructed the commissioners microphones at meetings. “The convenience of the iPad is what sold it — convenience and portability,” Rountree said. When her husband found out that the city was paying for the commissioners’ iPads, Rountree said he wanted to know if that meant she would get a new one and he could have hers. “I said, ‘No,’” she said with a laugh. IPADS, from page 1The plant will be producing energy constantlyproducing reasonably priced electricity and diversifying fuel sources, Meale said. The company that is developing the plant, American Renewables, has been underway on the project since 2007 with plans to create renewable energy and jobs, said Josh Levine, project manager for American Renewables. “We’re very excited about the judge’s decision and are moving along diligently,” Levine said. “We are hoping to begin construction early next year, which will allow The energy will be sold to Gainesville Regional Utilities under a 30-year power purchase agreement. Diversifying fuel Levine said. GRU has been criticized by bond rating agencies for not having enough fuel diversity in the past. Since the new plant will diversify the ability of GRU, Levine said. Unlike other forms of renewable energy that require the wind to be blowing or the sun to be shining, Levine said, this plant can produce energy 24/7. The plant will also create jobs. The company will employ 44 individuals directly and could create up to 700 jobs for the region — anything from hotels and restaurants to the people that will be making the tires for the trucks, Levine said. Former Mayor Thomas Bussing, the intervener in the hearing, disagrees with nancial and environmental disaster. The total cost of the contract is estimated to be more than $2 billion, Bussing said, making the power much more expensive than other forms of energy. Increased electricity rates, increased pollution and emission of dioxins are not something that Gainesville needs, he said. Instead, he said the next step could be taking the case to the citing board. “This is merely a recommendation to the power plant citing board, and perhaps and remand it for improvement,” he said. For now, the GREC group is trying to get on the Cabinet’s agenda for the Dec. 7 meeting. If they are successful, they hope to Levine said.

Maybe everyone who opposes the idea of burning wood to help save the environment can turn their old, venerated logic into GreenSpeak we can use to fertilize local gardens. Turning facts into fertilizer is almost as eco-friendly as burning wood to clean the air. The production of thousands of metric tons of Gainesville GreenSpeak holds as much promise as the biomass power plant, and it will cost hundreds of millions of dollars less than planning a way to power the future using caveman technology. Local politicians and the leadership at Gainesville Regional Utilities have already been working on the widespread production of all the GreenSpeak they can reasonably spew forth, setting an excellent example for the rest of us. GRU leased 131 acres and the operation of a taxpayer-built billion dollar wood-burning power plant to a private company from the Northeast at the bargainbasement price of $100 a year. In the contract our local politicians approved, most of the details were blacked out, getting rid of all that messy “accountability” stuff GRU is always trying to sidestep. Even the rosiest estimates have our utility rates skyrocketing once we build this. cial decision Gainesville has ever made will be if federal regulations change in the future to punish coal-burning power plants. The GreenSpeak coming from the information we will need in or der to make a sound decision. Pumping an average of 1.4 million gallons a day from the Lower Santa Fe River for the plant’s coolclad promise that “some” of the water used will be reclaimed water after seven years or so. Having 130 diesel trucks barreling down the road with tons of wood is actually the most sustainable thing we could do. Since we are relying on Stone Age technology, anyway, maybe we can equip all the trucks with Flintstonesstyle foot brakes. The air around town will be full of particulates and other toxic crap, but who doesn’t love the nostalgic and Plenty of jobs will be created from the hundreds of vincing everyone a power plant built in the 21st century should use technology developed when the woolly mammoth was still around. The options for clean energy are all imperfect in their own way, and we all have to do our part to conserve and simply live differently in order to construct a cleaner future.

Strip downAirport procedures violate civil liberties“D After refusing a full-body scan and then refusing a full-body pat down, a 31-year-old California man was thrown out of San Diego’s airport Saturday after saying, “If you touch my junk, I’ll have you arrested.” John Tyner’s “Don’t touch my junk” tagline had already gone viral by Monday morning courtesy of a cell phone video, prompting quick response from Transportation Security Ading methods. The new pat down rules began Oct. 28 as an alternative to the already-deemed intrusive full-body scanners that have been called “virtual strip searches” by many. The pat-down procedure that Tyner refused involves a sameof the passenger’s body, including the groin and breast area. TSA and the Department of Homeland Security have repeatedly defended the full-body scanners that can peer under clothes as “necessary” to ensure safety, and the pat-down meaAfter refusing to be violated virtually and physically by “junk” ordeal. And when any man or woman can face a multi-thousanddollar lawsuit because he or she refused to be violated by an air Defending the new pat-down procedures, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said the pat downs, which have been labeled as “groping” and “inappropriate” by airplane passengers across the country, protect passenger safety. But as Americans grapple with the inevitable relinquishing of civil liberties in the name of “safety” today as the holiday season quickly approaches, it becomes clear that no such search method would have discovered the series of printer bombs sent from Yemen in late October. The main question Americans face is not one of ultimate safety — as the Yemen-originated printer bombs did not have to pass through an intrusive pat down — but rather: How many civil liberties are we willing to relinquish for the government to present as the series of printer bombs has shown us, but we also agree that TSA’s pat-down procedures and virtually strip searching full-body scans do little if anything to solve terror ism’s increasingly intelligent methods. Tyner said it best Saturday morning when he told airport ofAs soon as we become comfortable with legal “sexual assaults,” as Tyner described it, we open the dubious doors to routine full strip searches in the name of “safety.” In response to Tyner’s refusal Saturday, TSA Chief John Pistole said the new measures provide the “best possible technology” to detect explosives.

Shaelyn McDaniel UF student Cycling safety a two-way streetIn reference to Danielle Spatz’s Monday article, I’ve been a cyclist in this town for eight years now, and every single incident in which I’ve been close to being hit or actually hit by a car has been on campus. Sure, there are a lot of cyclists on campus, a fair share of them being inconsider ate by breaking laws and weaving in and However, even those of us who signal and stop at lights and stop signs have to contend with inconsiderate drivers, many of whom may come from cities with few cyclists. It’s hard to be a “defensive biker” when a driver passes you and then immediately turns without warning. I don’t have a horn, so short of throwing things at them from my bike, I, like most cyclists, have no way to get the attention of a driver with the windows rolled up. If the University Police wants there to be fewer accidents, I’d suggest they place signs at the entrances to campus asking drivers to watch out for their two-wheeled friends when turning and to yield to bicyrequired to do for buses. Gainesville prides itself on regularly being ranked as one of the friendliest cities in the nation to cyclists thanks to having segregated bike lanes, numerous municipal bike racks and a Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Board that works with the City Commission. Now it’s up to the law enforcement as well as cyclists to make it one of the safest cities as well. Dan Fitzpatrick UF student Students concerned their relationships are on the rocks and could end soon can gain some insight from a study of Facebook statuses. A new graphic circulating on the Internet charts the use of the phrases “breakup” and “broken up” in Facebook status updates to show what time of the year couples split. David McCandless, a London-based writer and designer who focuses on data journalism and information design, along with colleague Lee Bryon, created the data visualization in 2008 by scraping 10,000 Facebook status updates for data. McCandless exhibited the graphic during a July TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference on data visualization. He described the graph to the audience, saying, “People clearing out for Spring Break, coming out of very bad weekends on Monday, being single over the summer. And then the lowest day of the year, of course: Christmas Day. Who would do that?” The graphic shows spikes in breakups after Valentine’s Day and in the two weeks before Christmas. April Fool’s Day. Jessica Semin, a freshman pre-nursing student at U. Nebraska-Lincoln, said she thinks people may break up more frequently in the weeks before Christmas because of winter break for college students. “Maybe since people are with their friends, and not together,” she said. “During Christmas in college, students go back home and see old friends.” Jesse Barlean, a sophomore at UNL, had a different theory. “I was actually just talking about this with my friends,” he said. “We thought people break up over Christmas and stay broken up until Valentine’s Day because they don’t want to buy gifts.” He thought Spring Break breakups were also explainable. “No one wants a girlfriend for Spring Break,” he said. Semin said that the Monday breakup spikes seemed likely to her. “Mondays are never a good day for anyone. And it’s coming off a weekend,” she said, adding that sometimes couples Barlean agreed, saying, “People have bad Mondays.” As for April Fool’s Day, Barlean doubts that more couples actually split up on that day. “On April Fool’s Day, maybe it’s just a joke,” he said. During his TED talk, McCandless uses his visualization as an example of the wealth of data available to researchers on the Internet. “There’s a titanic amount of data out there,” he said. “It’s unprecedented.” Kaitlin Ek is a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.Facebook breakups peak before Christmas, on MondaysUWireKaitlin EkUWire

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 EVENTS WILL BE HELD ON CAMPUS ALL WEEK.By MINA RADMANAlligator Writer Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to put out their cigarettes this week. Starting Tuesday, GatorWell and the American Medical Student Association will host a variety of events across campus this week to raise awareness about the dangers of tobacco use and provide resources for those who want to quit. “The goal is typically to raise awareness,” said Jane Emmeree, a “quit coach” at GatorWell. “We always try to do something locally in conjunction with the national event.” These events mark the 35th annual Great American Smokeout, held nationwide by the American Cancer Society, which encourages smokers to pick a day to quit. “We ask them to consider quitting again, if not by the day of smokeout, said. UF has maintained a tobacco-free campus policy since July, in which tobacco use is prohibited across campus. Involvement addresses students who don’t comply with the policy, while employees’ immediate supervisors address any issues. The GatorWell Health Hut will have health resource materials Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Hub, the Southwest Recreation Center, the Plaza of the Americas and the Reitz Union Colonnade. AMSA will be tabling on the Plaza of the Americas Thursday with additional resource materials. ‘Smokeout’ urges quittingNATIONALTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSSAN FRANCISCO — The California Supreme Court ruled Monday that some illegal immigrants are entitled to the same tuition breaks offered to in-state high school students to attend public colleges and universities. While the ruling applies only to Califor nia, the case was closely watched nationally because nine other states including New York and Texas have similar laws. Republican congressmen Lamar S. Smith called friends of the court brief urging that illegal immigrants be denied the reduced rate. The lawsuit was part of a broader legal assault led by the immigration legal scholar across the country seeking to restrict the rights of illegal immigrants. A unanimous state Supreme Court, led by politically conservative Justice Ming Chin, said the California provision was constitutional because U.S. residents also had access to the reduced rates. The California Legislature passed the controversial measure in 2001 that allowed any student regardless of immigration status who attended a California high school for at least three years and graduated to qualify for in-state tuition at the state’s colleges universities. In-state tuition saves each state college student about $11,000 a year and each University of California student about $23,000 a year. The state law also requires the illegal immigrants applying for the in-state tuition to swear they will attempt to become U.S. citizens. The applicants are still “Through their hard work and persever ance, these students have earned the opportunity to attend UC,” said University of California president Mark G.

SportsTUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org TEEING OFF WITH KYLE MAISTRI POLL QUESTION UF FOOTBALL UF HOSTS OHIO STATE TONIGHT AT 6.By GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writergluca@alligator.org For weeks the Gators have been endorsing their increased physicality. test. After three games of feasting on inferior competition, Florida’s big men will be challenged when they square off against No. 4 Ohio State at 6 in the O’Connell Center. “They’re big, they have a lot of size, and they’re really athletic,” segoing to be a challenge for us.” Tyus and seniors Vernon Macklin and Chandler Parsons comprise a frontcourt that led No. 9 UF to a 36-22 rebounding edge in its season opener against UNC-Wilmington, ger competition from OSU. The average Seahawks starter was 6-foot-5, 195 pounds, while the Buckeyes starters stand at an aver age of 6-foot-6, 233 pounds. Ohio State put that advantage on display in its opening game, outrebounding North Carolina A&T by an astounding 55-17 margin on its way to a 102-61 victory. “I think (Ohio State) has the potential to be one of the best rebounding teams in the country,” said coach Billy Donovan, whose average starter is 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds. “They obviously have a lot of length and size.” A great deal of that rebounding Sullinger, a highly-touted recruit who was the consensus No. 1 center in his class. The 6-foot-9, 280-pound monster is a quality passer and has a strong face-up game to compliment his dominant post presence. “He has really good moves and he keeps his composure,” Tyus said of Sullinger. “He doesn’t play like a freshman.” One way the Gators hope to counter the Buckeyes’ bulk is by playing an up-tempo style and coming at them with a full-court press. Florida believes that it can tire out the Ohio State starters if it can keep them out of their normal offensive “With their size, we’d rather take our chances up there than waiting for them to come up in the half court,” junior Erving Walker said. “It’s our style versus their style, and we want our style to win out.” The Gators are also hoping that the press will be able to generate turnovers against an Ohio State team that usually operates without a traditional point guard. With the loss of Evan Turner to the NBA, the Buckeyes have had to hand the role of primary ball-handler over to junior William Buford, who has played mostly off the ball in his OSU career. “I think he’s really a two-guard,” sophomore Kenny Boynton said. on him and try to turn him over.” The only true point guard on the roster is freshman Aaron Craft, who recorded nine assists in 22 minutes during OSU’s opener. UF will be looking to rattle Craft and the rest of Ohio State’s topranked recruiting class with relentless pressure and deafening crowd noise. “For their freshman this will game,” Boynton said. “I think we crowd and our intensity.”Matt Tripp / Alligator StaffPower forward Alex Tyus and the rest of UF’s frontcourt will battle against a Ohio State starting lineup whose average size is 6-foot-6, 233 pounds. Gators look to use press to beat big Buckeyes teamBy MATT WATTSAlligator Writer In 2005 Amanda Butler notched her the Charlotte 49ers. On Monday night, she reached another milestone against that very same team. The Gators’ 76-70 victory against Charlotte (1-1) in the second round of the Preseason Women’s NIT gave Butler her 100th career win. “There is absolutely nothing bitter about winning, regardless of who you’re playing against,” Butler said. “I’m just thankful to have coached as many good players as I have to reach that milestone.” The Gators employed the same starting lineup used against UCF in the opener featuring newcomer Lanita Bartley at point guard and veteran guard. Bartley’s second start in the orange and blue started much like the previous left off. She drove to the basket early and often, grabbed a couple Butler beats former team to earn 100th career win Wo men's Bask etball UF FOOTBALLBy ANTHONY CHIANGAlligator Staff Writerachiang@alligator.org Gators fans could be welcoming back some familiar faces next season. Despite rumors and criticism, coach Urban Meyer said Monday he believes UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will be back calling plays next season. pelled rumors that he was thinking about transferring from Florida. Addazio has received much of the blame for the offense’s struggles. The Gators are currently ranked 82nd in total offense. And if Addazio is the most frequent name when discussing the offense’s failures, Brantley isn’t far behind. He has thrown eight touchdowns son as Florida’s starting quarterback. His inability to run the option has led to a decrease in playing time as he is now splitting time with two other quarter backs.

“My dad called me last weekend right when he landed back from Nashville (Tenn.),” Brantley said. “He didn’t know what was going on, and I had no idea either. I haven’t said anything to him about that. He has never said anything to me about that. Those are just all rumors.” Looking for energy on offense: Florida’s offense Drafts. Evidently, it’s missing something else. On Monday, Meyer pointed toward a lack of energy as one of the offense’s problems. “I don’t see an offense full of life,” he said. “I don’t see a lot of energy. That’s one thing as a head coach that based. And you try to recruit those types of personali ties (that bring energy).” The offense is averaging about 29 points per game rated passer in the conference. role may expand Saturday to help bring some life to the group. is obviously critical at the center of the offense.” The freshman completed three of seven passes against South Carolina, one of them for a touchdown. But so far the energy provided by players such as Tim Tebow, Maurkice Pouncey, Percy Harvin, Aaron this season’s unit. toward the game. Guys that really show while they are playing that they love it and they bring other guys up around them. I think that’s where we were hurting all year.” Easley back practicing with team: Freshman Do Vanderbilt game and his status with the team was in doubt. But Easley is practicing with the team again as of Monday, according to Meyer. The defensive tackle has recorded three tackles in 14, ALLIGATOR In Arkansas’ last three games, Mallett has passed for 927 yards, nine touchdowns and just one interception. Sure, the 6-foot-6 junior thrived against the likes of UTEP and Vanderbilt, but he also threw for 303 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns in a 41-20 win against South Carolina two weeks ago. You remember the Gamecocks, right? Blackmon added Texas to his growing list of victims Saturday when he torched the Longhorns for 145 yards and a touchdown. Thus far, Blackmon’s only miss came against Kansas State, and that’s only because he was suspended when the Cowboys beat the Wildcats. In the nine games Blackmon has played, the sophomore is averaging 9.3 catches and 159 yards. James suffered a slight setback last week against Cal, when he failed to reach the end zone and was held under 100 yards for just the second time this season. Still, James surpassed former Heisman darling Denard Robinson as the nation’s leading rusher, and the sophomore can make up for his recent shortcomings against No. 22 Arizona and in the annual Civil War against Oregon State. Moore’s Heisman hopes follow a similar strategy to that of Boise State’s national championship run: Beat up on the little guys while waiting for the big boys to erase each other. And last week, when LaMicahel James and the rest of the Ducks performance against “rival” Idaho on Friday night. He passed for more than 200 yards and accounted for three touchdowns. Another week, another laundry list of allegations. But unlike many players who are unable to compartmentalize offthem. He looked more emotional during warmups Saturday than he had all season.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15Few moments of UF’s beatdown loss to South Carolina could be described as poetic, but there was at least one. Early in the fourth quarter, Florida’s band struck up Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida.” The Gators trailed 29-7 and had just turned the ball over on downs, and it would’ve been hard to choose a more appropriate song thanks to “I used to rule the world” And that summed up exactly how most of the 90,885 watching Florida get pummeled by South Carolina must have felt at that moment. Remember when Tim Tebow was running around in The Swamp and a trip to the Southeastern Conference Championship felt like a birthright? Saturday night was a long way from there. By then, it was clear there would be no SEC title, and the reality of watching Steve Spurrier’s boys romp in The Swamp had set in. It effectively meant the end of the season, and that’s something Gators fans haven’t felt in quite a while. In the last rough year, 2007, Florida still had Tebow’s Heisman Trophy campaign to look forward to. Even in somewhat of a rebuilding year, it was a shock. But please, hold the tears. This is karma. No one gets to win all the time. Teams have to suck at least occasionally for the world to stay balanced. Sometimes they have a pitiful offense and lose a lot. Sometimes they get youknow-whatslapped by the Gamecocks. What goes around comes around, and Gators fans were due for some bad moments. So the powers that be had them lose to the team that ruined last season (Alabama) and then three ly Gonzalez, Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen and South Carolina’s Spurrier — men who helped set the standard for exciting UF offenses that this year’s team fell so frustratingly far short of. And the loss to the Gamecocks was a throwback to the win that started it all. Run back the opening kick and get blown out? Sounds like Ohio State in 2006. Meanwhile, they have to sit and watch Cam Newton guide Auburn to an 11-0 start and likely lock up a Heisman Trophy. They have to dream about what life would be like if Newton was still in Gainesville. These aren’t coincidences. They’re what had to happen, and experiencing this is what makes true fans. The delirious run of Florida athletics from 2006-09 was so much sweeter for those who suffered through down seasons, much like how watching my favorite school win back-to-back conference titles was more special after seeing just three wins in a two-year period. People who enrolled at UF in the fall of 2006 and graduated on time (oops) left having seen a total of three national championships, a Heisman and an undefeated regular season. Life isn’t supposed to work that way. For those who showed timing. You arrived for the payback phase. And based on the wild success of years past, it can’t be over yet. True, a trip to Atlanta is still but that wouldn’t be the karmic cherry atop this season. Three bowls match up the SEC and Big Ten, and Illinois is a win away from being bowl-eligible.

WOMEN’S HOOPS, from page 13NCAA FOOTBALLTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUSTIN, Texas — Texas sophomore running back Tre’ Newton, son of former Dallas Cowboys lineman Nate Newton, announced Monday that he is giving up football after several concussions over his college and high school careers. Newton missed last week’s loss to Oklahoma State after sustaining a concussion in a loss to Kansas State on Nov. 6. Team doctors advised him to give up football to avoid long-term problems, Newton said. Newton said the decision to quit football “You have to think about the future because football is going to end someday.” “As much as I love football, this is one of the hardest decisions of my life,” Newton said. “[But] football isn’t forever.” Newton also sustained a concussion in 2009, but was still Texas’ leading rusher that season with 552 yards. He had rushed for 229 yards and three touchdowns this season. Newton said he had more than one concussion in high school. He will stay on corporate communications. “He’s earned his scholarship here,” coach Mack Brown said. “He’s a great young man and leader.” Newton said he doesn’t remember the play on which he got hurt against Kansas State. He did not practice last week and met with team doctors and his family a few hours before the Oklahoma State game to Brown said Newton will remain close to the team and could help coach running backs next season. “We try to get them in the mainstream [of the program] to rebuild their identity. Your concern you have is your friends won’t look at you the same way. You were a guy who could help them win, now you can’t do that anymore,” Brown said. Newton welcomed the chance to stay with his teammates, offering to help anyway he can “even if it’s just running to give somebody water.” Texas senior wide receiver James Kirkendoll said the team didn’t know of Newton’s decision until Monday morning. “He’s a true teammate and a great football player,” Kirkendoll said. “It’s one of the tough things you have to deal with in this sport.” With Newton’s career now over and junior Foswhitt Whittaker nursing a sore shoulder, junior Cody Johnson is listed as the starter for Saturday’s game against Florida Atlantic (4-5).

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 AP PhotoDolphins quarterback Chad Henne injured his left knee against the Titans on Sunday. His status for Thursday’s game is in question. NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUETHE ASSOCIATED PRESS DAVIE — Chad Pennington’s latest shoulder injury is “long-term,” but Chad Henne might be available for Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said Monday. The Dolphins signed veteran Patrick Ramsey on Monday and placed Pennington on injured against the Tennessee Titans, Pennington re-injured his right shoulder, which has already under gone surgery three times. Third-string quarterback Tyler Thigpen is the Sunday’s victory over Tennessee when injuries sidelined Miami’s top two quarterbacks. Injury issues weren’t limited to quarterback. Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long hurt his shoulder, and his availability is uncertain. Like Long, AFC sack leader Cameron Wake (hip) and safety Chris bench. “We have a lot of guys bumped up right now,” Sparano said. “We’re sorting through it all.” As Sparano spoke, Henne was in the training room being treated for a left knee injury that sidelined him in the third quarter. Turnaround time is brief for the Dolphins (5-4), with only a single practice — today — between games. That makes it less likely Henne will be able to recover enough to start, but Sparano was noncommittal. “We’ll see. Right now we are day to day,” he said. “Tyler will be ready, depending on what Chad Henne does this week.” Thigpen entered Sunday’s game in the fourth quarter and led an 85-yard touchdown drive that sealed the 29-17 win. He went 4 for 6 for 64 yards and a score, a remarkably polished performance considering he has been mostly a spectator at practice this season. “As a No. 3, that’s what it is — you don’t get any reps,” Thigpen said. “The No. 1 gets about 80 percent, and the 2 gets about 20 percent of the reps. But the 3 has to just sit back there and mentally rep every play.”Dolphins place Pennington on IR, sign Ramsey “We have a lot of guys bumped up right now.

The $2.45 million share of the award, announced Monday, is part of the 2010 New Florida Initiative. The initiative is a collaborative effort -along with business and government -to aid Florida's economy and create high-technology and highwage jobs. All 11 state universities pitched more than 93 proposals for the initiaUniversity System. UF President Bernie Machen said the program is an example of what can happen when you pool the best research skills and focus them on a challenge. "The people of Florida will benefit greatly from this partnership with FSU through Machen improved health care and a stronger economy," Machen said. UF is also involved with programs involving climate change, expansion of grant of Internet infrastructure and biomedical engineerng. The money was given to the Board of Governors by the state legislature, and the funds will produce a series of demonstration projects that show a high return on investment, so the projects can continue into next year. Board Chairwoman Ava Parker said this is the best way to leverage not just the best current and future academic scholars, but nationally renowned facilities and university resources, as well. As part of its standard overall yearly budget request, the board has asked the Legislature for $150 million for next year, which would be the second year of the New Florida Initiative. Commision gets iPads By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Contributing Writer When Gainesville's Becky Rountree received an iPad for her birthday, she didn't think it would lead to saving the city thousands of dollars. She just thought it was a great present from her husband. But since Rountree, the city administrative services director, got her gift, the iPads are multiplying in city hall. Last month, Mayor Craig Lowe was the first of the city commission to use an iPad as an initiative to go paperless. "I'm getting used to looking at the agenda in a different way," he said. Local The mayor said he was eager to give it News a try and described the transition from paper agendas to digital as smooth. "I don't think that it will replace paper," he said. "But it will reduce it." It's almost been a month since he started using the iPad, and today, all seven members of the commission will have their own, saving the city an estimated $1,715 this year and more than 55,000 each year after. "I've never seen anything happen so fast," Rountree said.

Customers would have to pass a background check before using the $400 gun shop voucher. They also have the option of using the money toward other firearms, or they can request a check in that amount instead.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 Engineering students' 'Chem-E-Car' places Their car is fueled entirely by chemical reactions By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer As Cougar rolled to the finish, its creators held their breath. The car, fueled entirely by chemical reactions, had passed the rigorous safety test. It was consistent in practice. All it had to do now was stop near a line. It stopped 29 inches from the line, which was good enough to propel the team from UF's chapter of the American Institute of Chemical EnU F gineers tempoAcademics rarely into first place. Team members jumped and chanted, "It's great to be a Florida Gator!" with the University of South Florida team. The UF team took second place in the national Chemical Engineering Car competition, nicknamed the Chem-E-Car and hosted by the AIChE, and earned the title of Most Consistent Performance on Nov. 7 in Salt Lake City. Cornell University competed after the UF team and ended up winning first place. The car runs only off of hydrogen, which powers a fuel cell to run the motor. The competition required a car to stop at a line 95 feet away while carrying 250 grams of water. Cary Warsetsky, president of the UF chapter of AIChE, said the club has progressed immensely Courtesy to the Alligator From left to right, UF students Miguel Bravo, Jerry Chau, Louis Vazquez and Patrick Crooks stand next to their Chem-E-Car, which won second place in a competition in Salt Lake City.

He said his team barely had a moving car his freshman year and that to place second in nationals is an amazing improvement. Next year, they plan to build two cars: a reliable car like Cougar and an innovative car that no one's ever seen before. They want to win the creativity contest, too. In order to prepare for the competition, club members started planning last September and met twice a day for the two months leading up to the competition. "It's a year-round project," said Louis Vazquez, chairman of the Chem-E-Car project. As far as hands-on learning goes, he said this project is king. Older members teach new students how to build the car and how to avoid the problems they had in other competitions. "You pick up things that you didn't learn from a textbook," he said.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 Firefighter makes toughest cat rescue in 20 years Courtesytothe Alligator Gainesville Fire Rescue driver and operator Alan Dubose handles Wallie, a kitten that was rescued a from a storm drain Sunday afternoon. By JERRY BRUNO Alligator Contributing Writer The cries for help from a kitten stuck in a storm drain 20 feet below ground came to an end on Sunday when a Gainesville firefighter saved the forsaken feline. The animal was trapped at Walmart, 2649 NW 13th St., where the employees told Mary Marion, of Lake City, nothing could be done to help the kitten. "I just had to do something," she said. She called 911, and Gainesville Fire Rescue arrived at the scene at 3:25 p.m. "I thought this situation would be easy," said Jeff Lane, Fire Department district chief. "But the situation was more complex because of possible hazardous materials in the drainage pipe, such as hydrogen sulfide." Firefighters first removed the large grates covering the drainage vault and tried unsuccessfully to coax the kitten with cat food. When that didn't work, firefighter David Sutton crawled in the dangerous, vile air pipe to grab the kitten. "At first the kitten did not want to be rescued. She clawed and bit at my glove," he said. After an hour, the kitten was saved at 4:30 p.m. Once brought to the surface, the distressed animal was greeted with applause and shouts of joy from the crowd that gathered to watch the firefighter's efforts to save her. "In all my 20 years, this case is by far the most challenging cat rescue," Lane said. "Even though we are not in the animal services business, we serve the public, and this was a life that needed to be saved." How the cat got in the drainage pipe is still a mystery, he said. Walmart employee Diane Brault adopted the kitten on the spot and agreed to quarantine her for 10 days as a precaution. "I felt so bad for the kitten that I just wanted to take her home and take care of her," she said. The kitten's new name is Wallie, and she is reportedly in much better condition. "We gave her the name Wallie because she was found in the Walmart parking lot," Brault said with a smile on her face. Students get shot at songwriting THE SONGBLOOM PHONE APP LETS USERS UPLOAD THEIR OWN TRACKS. By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer A new iPhone application developed by a UF graduate is making it possible for even those who don't know the difference between a C-note and a G-note to write the next hit song. And for UF students to win some cash. The application, called Songbloom, was created by UF agriculture alumnus Amaury Garcia, 34, and is based off a music collaboration site of the same name. The idea behind Songbloom is for musicians to upload tracks over a skeleton track that provides structure. From there, musicians can upload their own guitar, bass, keyboard and vocal tracks for a song. One submission is chosen for each instrument for a pair of songs that are released each month in two categories -rock and hip-hop. The application mimics the website's system, but instead of users submitting recordings of themselves playing an instrument, users sing the melody or part for the song they think up. "Non-musicians still have music in them." Garcia said. "They can still interpret melody, just not through an instrument." The tracks are then recorded with the real instrument by a studio musician. Until Nov. 27, two current Songbloom projects are taking submissions for lead vocals. If a UF student downloads the iPhone application and submits a winning track, he or she will receive a $200 prize. The songs are judged by Garcia and his staff, including the Garcia studio musicians and engineers. The tracks don't need to be overly fancy or technical to be selected, he said. "It's purely content and feel of the audio that's submitted," Garcia said. "It's how well it suits the song and how much life it gives the song." Solo touts eco wares on campus A student teat By SOFIA ROYCE Alligator Contributing Writer While college students generally associate Solo cups with gameday fun and hazy weekends, they may soon be associating the brand with a more philanthropic and ecologically friendly type of fun. After being one of the few schools selected to compete by the Solo Cup Company, four UF Public Relations Student Society of Amenca members have put together a team for Go Bare on Campus, a case study competition where students will be competing with other schools across the country to get students to use sustainable products. The competition, which began in October and will continue -n is helping through Nov. 21, will attempt to get the most people to pledge on Facebook to "Go Bare,"a play on Solo's new line of environmentally friendly single-use food service products which includes renewable plates, compostable plates, recyclable cups and compostable cups. Rachel Raddatz, treasurer of the UF chapter of Student PRSSA, said she was very excited about the competition when she first heard about it. "I honestly just wanted to compete," Raddatz said. "This competition is a great way to get our chapter some national recognition as well as a great way to make $1,000." Currently, Ohio Northern University is in first place with 255 pledges while UF's chapter is in second place with 178 pledges. However, they are confident that they have what it takes to use the most eco-friendly single-use food service products at their school. Bridget Bartol, UF's team leader for the Go Bare on Campus by Solo competition, said that she wants to use this competition to inform people about making better life choices when it concerns the environment. She said she believes UF has a very good chance at winning because of its size as well as the networking and campaign skills the people in PRSSA already have. "We have such a great public relations department and professors who are all very interested in this competition," Bartol said. A Life in Poverty: the Homeless Steven Dennis, a Vietnam veteran, spoke about his experiences at a Poverty Forum at McCarty Hall A on Monday. Dennis was at one point one of the 100,000 veterans who are on the streets every night. He plans on returning to school in the spring to study psychology and to become a substance abuse counselor and counselor for veterans. "When I stand for something, it's not just for veterans -it's for all homeless (people)." For more about Dennis and the homeless forum, please visit www.alligator.org.

Expo shows off world cultures By LUKE GAVIN Alligator Contributing Writer Monday morning was the opening of the weeklong World Humanities Expo at Santa Fe College, where exhibits, speakers, food and performances give visitors a glimpse of cultures from around the world. The large activity room is sectioned into areas, with Asia, Latn America, the U.S., Africa, Europe and world religions each getting a display with a variety of student-created exhibits, including models, pictures, paintings and other creative displays. Rafael Ramos, a 20-year-old English major at SFC, said he liked the diversity of the projects. "I think it's just to expose people more to different cultures," Ramos said. "By doing that, they help to prevent prejudices because they give people an understanding of what other cultures might be thinking. Event organizer William Little, Multicultural chairman of the Humanities and Afta1rs Foreign Languages Department at Santa Fe, said the main purpose of the expo is to inspire, educate and entertain. "My sense is that people don't have a real feeling for what the humanities are," Little said. "So this is meant to concentrate what they are." Little said the displays are all graded projects created by Santa Fe students in humanities classes, and he said this is the seventh year for the expo but the first year it has been opened up to the local community. Little said the rest of the week will feature prominent speakers such as Dr. Philip Williams, director of Latin American studies at UF, and Nobuho NagaMax Reed/ Alligator Staff sawa, an international artist and professor at Stony Jyotir Kulmacz feeds his 3-month-old daughter Maya while looking Brook University. at the work of Santa Fe College students on Monday. R0The expo is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in room The plant will be producing energy constantly BIOMASS, from page 1 producing reasonably priced electricity and diversifying fuel sources, Meale said. The company that is developing the plant, American Renewables, has been underway on the project since 2007 with plans to create renewable energy and jobs, said Josh Levine, project manager for American Renewables. "We're very excited about the judge's decision and are moving along diligently," Levine said. "We are hoping to begin construction early next year, which will allow us to finish by 2013." The energy will be sold to Gainesville Regional Utilities under a 30-year power purchase agreement. Diversifying fuel sources is one of the greatest benefits, Levine said. GRU has been criticized by bond rating agencies for not having enough fuel diversity in the past. Since the new plant will diversify the fuel sources, it will increase the financial liability of GRU, Levine said. Unlike other forms of renewable energy that require the wind LocMI to be blowing or the sun to News be shining, Levine said, this plant can produce energy 24/7. The plant will also create jobs. The company will employ 44 individuals directly and could create up to 700 jobs for the region -anything from hotels and restaurants to the people that will be making the tires for the trucks, Levine said. Former Mayor Thomas Bussing, the intervener in the hearing, disagrees with Levine and said that the plant will be a financial and environmental disaster. The total cost of the contract is estimated to be more than $2 billion, Bussing said, making the power much more expensive than other forms of energy. Increased electricity rates, increased pollution and emission of dioxins are not something that Gainesville needs, he said. Instead, he said the next step could be taking the case to the citing board. "This is merely a recommendation to the power plant citing board, and perhaps they will see that this is a flawed decision and remand it for improvement," he said. For now, the GREC group is trying to get on the Cabinet's agenda for the Dec. 7 meeting. If they are successful, they hope to have a site certification by early December, Levine said. iPad, accessories cost about $245 /ess than printing IPADS, from page 1 In a memo she sent out Oct. 20, she estimated that, on average, the cost of paper agendas is $785 annually for each commissioner. Purchasing a 16GB iPad with a protective case and extra chargers would cost 5540 -that's $245 less than the paper agendas. The idea to use the new technology started when Rountree brought her birthday present into work. Lila Stewart, a strategic planner for the city, had been working to make the transition from paper to digital since she started working for the city three years ago. When she saw Rountree showing off her iPad, she thought the new technology might be an interesting way to accomplish her paperless goal. Stewart said that she later read a case study in the Alliance for Innovation Newsletter showing that the introduction of iPads into local governments allowed for convenience, environmental friendliness and cost efficiency. She forwarded the article to Rountree and the idea took off. But the city commission isn't the first board in Gainesville to implement this type of paperless system. The UF Board of Trustees started a similar system nearly five years ago, but with laptops instead of iPads. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said that for the 13 members of the board, printing agendas just didn't make sense. Rountree said that the city tried laptops but had issues with the costs and size, and the laptops would have obstructed the commissioners microphones at meetings. "The convenience of the iPad is what sold Orlando it -convenience and portability," Rountree said. When her husband found out that the city was paying for the commissioners' iPads, Rountree said he wanted to know if that meant she would get a new one and he could have hers. "I said,'No,"' she said with a laugh. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Study shows Twitter gives GPA boost H IT ALSO INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD OF GRADUATING. By CHELSEA HULL Alligator Contributing Writer Students who are social-networking savvy may be ahead of the academic curve. In a recent study, UF psychology alumnus Reynol Junco found that Twitter increases grade point averages as well as students' likelihood to stay at a single university until graduation. The study was performed at Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania, where Junco is an assistant professor. He took a group of 125 students who did not previously use Twitter from a freshman seminar for pre-health professional majors and split them into two groups, introducing one group to the 140character world of Twitter. Junco spoke to other professors about using social media in their classes and found that professors favored Twitter over other networking sites because there was less of a social requirement. "With Twitter, you can be connected to any country just by typing something into a search field." Jessica Annett UF senior While in these courses, students were able to tweet to complete homework and extra credit assignments. Junco admitted that he thought Twitter would help students socially but not academically. However, after one semester, students using Twitter had an average grade point average of 2.8 -0.5 points higher than non-users. Students were also given a pretest to measure engagement -their level of involvement and attachment to the university -before the Twitter experiment began. On the post-test, Twitter users showed increased engagement, which Junco said means they are much more committed to the university. "Engagement is the magic bullet of student success," Junco said. "You have to engage students early in their college career to keep them connected to the institution and to keep them successful." Jessica Annett, a UF English and Spanish senior, said that through Twitter she is exposed to conversational and spontaneous dialogue from Spanish speakers in other countries. "Things like slang and abbreviations are never taught in classrooms and hard to find if you aren't immersed in the culture," she said. "With Twitter, you can be connected to any country just by typing something into a search field."

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 Strip down Airport procedures violate civil liberties "D on't Tase me, bro" finally has a sister slogan. After refusing a full-body scan and then refusing a full-body pat down, a 31-year-old California man was thrown out of San Diego's airport Saturday after saying, "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested." John Tyner's "Don't touch my junk" tagline had already gone viral by Monday morning courtesy of a cell phone video, prompting quick response from Transportation Security Administration officials to defend its already-controversial screening methods. The new pat down rules began Oct. 28 as an alternative to the already-deemed intrusive full-body scanners that have been called "virtual strip searches" by many. The pat-down procedure that Tyner refused involves a samesex airport official conducting a "sliding hand motion" search of the passenger's body, including the groin and breast area. TSA and the Department of Homeland Security have repeatedly defended the full-body scanners that can peer under clothes as "necessary" to ensure safety, and the pat-down measures, officials said, "serve an important goal." After refusing to be violated virtually and physically by airport officials, Tyner said he now faces a $10,000 fine for his "junk" ordeal. And when any man or woman can face a multi-thousanddollar lawsuit because he or she refused to be violated by an airport official or be virtually strip-searched, something is wrong. Defending the new pat-down procedures, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said the pat downs, which have been labeled as "groping" and "inappropriate" by airplane passengers across the country, protect passenger safety. But as Americans grapple with the inevitable relinquishing of civil liberties in the name of "safety" today as the holiday season quickly approaches, it becomes clear that no such search method would have discovered the series of printer bombs sent from Yemen in late October. The main question Americans face is not one of ultimate safety -as the Yemen-originated printer bombs did not have to pass through an intrusive pat down -but rather: How many civil liberties are we willing to relinquish for the government to tell us we're finally safe? We strongly recognize that the threat of terrorism is everpresent as the series of printer bombs has shown us, but we also agree that TSA's pat-down procedures and virtually strip searching full-body scans do little if anything to solve terrorism's increasingly intelligent methods. Tyner said it best Saturday morning when he told airport officials, "I don't understand how a sexual assault can be made a condition of my flying." As soon as we become comfortable with legal "sexual assaults," as Tyner described it, we open the dubious doors to routine full strip searches in the name of "safety." In response to Tyner's refusal Saturday, TSA Chief John Pistole said the new measures provide the "best possible technology" to detect explosives. Yet Pistole notably disregarded the inability of the new measures to find and discover such bombs as the ones sent from Yemen. Stand up for your rights, Gators. Sexual assault should not be a requirement for flying. Or you can always report those dissidents who want to keep their civil liberties for thoughtcrime. And, oh yeah, don't touch my junk. a l l e independent fo rida 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 will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University Ay or send them to P0 Box 14257, Gainesvi Iie, FL 32604-2257 i umns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Maybe everyone who opposes the idea of burning wood to help save the environment can turn their old, venerated logic into GreenSpeak we can use to fertilize local gardens. Turning facts into fertilizer is almost as eco-friendly as burning wood to clean the air. The production of thousands of metric tons of Gainesville GreenSpeak holds as much promise as the biomass power plant, and it will cost hundreds of millions of dollars less than planning a way to power the future using caveman technology. Local politicians and the leadership at Gainesville Regional Utilities have already been working on the widespread production of all the GreenSpeak they can reasonably spew forth, setting an excellent example for the rest of us. GRU leased 131 acres and the operation of a taxpayer-built billion dollar wood-burning power plant to a private company from the Northeast at the bargainbasement price of $100 a year. In the contract our local politicians approved, most of the details were blacked out, getting rid of all that messy "accountability" stuff GRU is always trying to sidestep. Even the rosiest estimates have our utility rates skyrocketing once we build this. The only way this won't be the single worst financial decision Gainesville has ever made will be if federal regulations change in the future to punish coal-burning power plants. Tommy Maple letters@alligator org The GreenSpeak coming from our elected officials, though, is all the information we will need in order to make a sound decision. Pumping an average of 1.4 million gallons a day from the Lower Santa Fe River for the plant's cooling tower is fine. We have an ironclad promise that "some" of the water used will be reclaimed water after seven years or so. Having 130 diesel trucks barreling down the road every day an average of 52 miles away (and back) filled with tons of wood is actually the most sustainable thing we could do. Since we are relying on Stone Age technology, anyway, maybe we can equip all the trucks with Flintstonesstyle foot brakes. The air around town will be full of particulates and other toxic crap, but who doesn't love the nostalgic and woodsy smell of a campfire? Plenty of jobs will be created from the hundreds of workers emptying forest floors to the small armada of public relations flacks we'll need in order to keep convincing everyone a power plant built in the 21st century should use technology developed when the woolly mammoth was still around. The options for clean energy are all imperfect in their own way, and we all have to do our part to conserve and simply live differently in order to construct a cleaner future.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 M ALLIGATOR, 7 Gators should stick together Shame. Shame all around. Shame on the team and on the coaching staff, but shame on us, too. Yes, our team has major issues; no one can deny that. But you know who else has issues? The fair-weathered fans in the crowd Saturday who had the gall to boo our quarterback. John Brantley is not Tim Tebow. We know that. By this point, we know he's not even close to Tebow. But he's ours. You might even think he's the Ron Zook of quarterbacks, but he's ours. You do not boo your own players, Gators. Boo Steve Addazio. Go ahead. He's a grown man who needs to get some lessons into his skull. Boo the other team. It's a little crass, but whatever. But do not boo a guy who, while perhaps lacking in talent, has patiently and graciously waited years for his turn only to see an entire city turn on him. Don't scourge Brantley for trying. Either cheer for the team you love or shut up and stay home. The team will rebuild. Brantley will move on with his life. Maybe even Addazio will get fired. But we don't need you mean-spirited hypocrites there. Shame on you, students. Shaelyn McDaniel UF student Cycling safety a two-way street In reference to Danielle Spatz's Monday article, I've been a cyclist in this town for eight years now, and every single incident in which I've been close to being hit or actually hit by a car has been on campus. Sure, there are a lot of cyclists on campus, a fair share of them being inconsiderate by breaking laws and weaving in and out of traffic with a sense of entitlement. However, even those of us who signal and stop at lights and stop signs have to contend with inconsiderate drivers, many of whom may come from cities with few cyclists. It's hard to be a "defensive biker" when a driver passes you and then immediately turns without warning. I don't have a horn, so short of throwing things at them from my bike, I, like most cyclists, have no way to get the attention of a driver with the windows rolled up. If the University Police wants there to be fewer accidents, I'd suggest they place signs at the entrances to campus asking drivers to watch out for their two-wheeled friends when turning and to yield to bicyclists trying to enter traffic just like cars are required to do for buses. Gainesville prides itself on regularly being ranked as one of the friendliest cities in the nation to cyclists thanks to having segregated bike lanes, numerous municipal bike racks and a Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Board that works with the City Commission. Now it's up to the law enforcement as well as cyclists to make it one of the safest cities as well. Dan Fitzpatrick UF student Facebook breakups peak before Christmas, on Mondays Students concerned their relationships are on the rocks and could end soon can gain some insight from a study of Facebook statuses. A new graphic circulating on the Internet charts the use of the phrases "breakup" and "broken up" in Facebook status updates to show what time of the year couples split. David McCandless, a London-based writer and designer who focuses on data journalism and information design, along with colleague Lee Bryon, created the data visualization in 2008 by scraping 10,000 Facebook status updates for data. McCandless exhibited the graphic during a July TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference on data visualization. He described the graph to the audience, saying, "People clearing out for Spring Break, coming out of very bad weekends on Monday, being single over the summer. And then the lowest day of the year, of course: Christmas Day. Who would do that?" Kaitlin Ek The graphic shows spikes in breakUWire ups after Valentine's Day and in the two weeks before Christmas. There was also a significant spike on April Fool's Day. Jessica Semin, a freshman pre-nursing student at U. Nebraska-Lincoln, said she thinks people may break up more frequently in the weeks before Christmas because of winter break for college students. "Maybe since people are with their friends, and not together," she said. "During Christmas in college, students go back home and see old friends." Jesse Barlean, a sophomore at UNL, had a different theory. "I was actually just talking about this with my friends," he said. "We thought people break up over Christmas and stay broken up until Valentine's Day because they don't want to buy gifts." He thought Spring Break breakups were also explainable. "No one wants a girlfriend for Spring Break," he said. Semin said that the Monday breakup spikes seemed likely to her. "Mondays are never a good day for anyone. And it's coming off a weekend," she said, adding that sometimes couples have fights over weekend events. Barlean agreed, saying, "People have bad Mondays." As for April Fool's Day, Barlean doubts that more couples actually split up on that day. "On April Fool's Day, maybe it's just a joke," he said. During his TED talk, McCandless uses his visualization as an example of the wealth of data available to researchers on the Internet. "There's a titanic amount of data out there," he said. "It's unprecedented." Kaitlin Ek is a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. UNIVGR5UM TOP 100 IDEAL EMPLOYER 2010ST[UD NTSURVtY what you can achieve New challenges. Global insight.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 'Smokeout' urges quitting EVENTS WILL BE HELD ON CAMPUS ALL WEEK. By MINA RADMAN Alligator Writer Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to put out their cigarettes this week. Starting Tuesday, GatorWell and the American Medical Student Association will host a variety of events across campus this week to raise awareness about the dangers of tobacco use and provide resources for those who want to quit. "The goal is typically to raise aware ness," said Jane Emmeree, a "quit coach" at GatorWell. "We always try to do something locally in conjunction with the national event." These events mark the 35th annual Great American Smokeout, held nationwide by the American Cancer Society, which encourages smokers to pick a day to quit. "We ask them to consider quitting again, if not by the day of smokeout, then by the first of the year," Emmeree said. UF has maintained a tobacco-free campus policy since July, in which tobacco use is prohibited across campus. The Office of Student Activities and Involvement addresses students who don't comply with the policy, while employees' immediate supervisors address any issues. On The GatorWell Health CampUS Hut will have health resource matenals Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Hub, the Southwest Recreation Center, the Plaza of the Americas and the Reitz Union Colonnade. AMSA will be tabling on the Plaza of the Americas Thursday with additional resource matenals. NATIONAL Court upholds in-state tuition for immigrants THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO -The California Supreme Court ruled Monday that some illegal immigrants are entitled to the same tuition breaks offered to in-state high school students to attend public colleges and universities. While the ruling applies only to California, the case was closely watched nationally because nine other states including New York and Texas have similar laws. Republican congressmen Lamar S. Smith of Texas and Steve King of Iowa filed a socalled friends of the court brief urging that illegal immigrants be denied the reduced rate. The lawsuit was part of a broader legal assault led by the immigration legal scholar Kris Kobach, who has filed numerous cases across the country seeking to restrict the rights of illegal immigrants. A unanimous state Supreme Court, led by politically conservative Justice Ming Chin, said the California provision was constitutional because U.S. residents also had access to the reduced rates. The California Legislature passed the controversial measure in 2001 that allowed any student regardless of immigration status who attended a California high school for at least three years and graduated to qualify for in-state tuition at the state's colleges universities. In-state tuition saves each state college student about $11,000 a year and each University of California student about $23,000 a year. The state law also reKobach quires the illegal immigrants applying for the in-state tuition to swear they will attempt to become U.S. citizens. The applicants are still barred from receiving federal financial aid. "Through their hard work and perseverance, these students have earned the opportunity to attend UC," said University of California president Mark G. Yudof. "Their accomplishments should not be disregarded or their futures jeopardized." 14410, 50% OFF UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PERFORMING ARTS ex 11aM-70M FrdaYS e nd 4om-70 M day -Thursda8 -,,Butler Plaza NewberrGSuare i I ays Thur -335-1232 332-3937Gradrnspclsto 4P2 n.4rIN NdMI4rV., IIQONWODD R ONCO G 0 f C 0 U R 5 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 2100 NE 39th Avenue Wednesday, November 17, 7:30 p.m. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Sponsored by Gai Stands llealthCai'e Tickets are available at the Phillips Center Box Office in person, or by calling (352) 392-2787.

Sports TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.aIligatorSports.org Gators look to use press to beat big Buckeyes team 0 UF HOSTS OHIO STATE TONIGHT AT 6. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca @alIlIigator org For weeks the Gators have been endorsing their increased physicality. Tonight they'll face their first real test. After three games of feasting on inferior competition, Florida's big men will be challenged when they square off against No. 4 Ohio State at 6 in the O'Connell Center. "They're big, they have a lot of size, and they're really athletic," senior Alex Tyus said. "It's definitely going to be a challenge for us." Tyus and seniors Vernon Macklin and Chandler Parsons comprise a frontcourt that led No. 9 UF to a 36-22 rebounding edge in its season opener against UNC-Wilmington, but they will face significantly stronger competition from OSU. The average Seahawks starter was 6-foot-5, 195 pounds, while the Buckeyes starters stand at an average of 6-foot-6, 233 pounds. Ohio State put that advantage on display in its opening game, outrebounding North Carolina A&T by an astounding 55-17 margin on its way to a 102-61 victory. "I think (Ohio State) has the potential to be one of the best rebounding teams in the country," said coach Billy Donovan, whose average starter is 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds. "They obviously have a lot of length and size. A great deal of that rebounding figures to come from freshman Jared Sullinger, a highly-touted recruit who was the consensus No. 1 center in his class. The 6-foot-9, 280-pound monster is a quality passer and has a strong face-up game to compliment his dominant post presence. "He has really good moves and he keeps his composure," Tyus said of Sullinger. "He doesn't play like a freshman." One way the Gators hope to counter the Buckeyes' bulk is by playing an up-tempo style and coming at them with a full-court press. Florida believes that it can tire out Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Power forward Alex Tyus and the rest of UF's frontcourt will battle against a Ohio State starting lineup whose average size is 6-foot-6, 233 pounds. the Ohio State starters if it can keep them out of their normal offensive sets and force them to run the floor. "With their size, we'd rather take our chances up there than waiting for them to come up in the half court," junior Erving Walker said. "It's our style versus their style, and we want our style to win out." The Gators are also hoping that the press will be able to generate turnovers against an Ohio State team that usually operates without a traditional point guard. With the loss of Evan Turner to the NBA, the Buckeyes have had to hand the role of primary ball-handler over to junior William Buford, who has played mostly off the ball in his OSU career. "I think he's really a two-guard," sophomore Kenny Boynton said. "We definitely have to put pressure on him and try to turn him over." The only true point guard on the roster is freshman Aaron Craft, who recorded nine assists in 22 minutes during OSU's opener. UF will be looking to rattle Craft and the rest of Ohio State's topranked recruiting class with relentless pressure and deafening crowd noise. "For their freshman this will be their first time playing in a big game," Boynton said. "I think we definitely could get to them without crowd and our intensity." Butler beats former team to earn 100th career win By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer In 2005 Amanda Butler notched her first career victory as the head coach of the Charlotte 49ers. On Monday night, she reached another milestone against that very same team. The Gators' 76-70 victory against Charlotte (1-1) in the second round of the Preseason Women's NIT gave Butler her 100th career win. "There is absolutely nothing bitter about winning, regardless of who you're playing against," Butler said. "I'm just thankful to have coached as many good players as I have to reach that milestone." The Gators employed the same starting lineup used against UCF in the opener featuring newWomen's comer Lanita Bartley at point guard and veteran Basketball Jordan Jones at shooting guard. Bartley's second start in the orange and blue started much like the previous left off. She drove to the basket early and often, grabbed a couple SEE WOMEN'S HOOPS, PAGE 14 Addazio, Brantley expected to return despite criticism ByANTHONYCHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Gators fans could be welcoming back some familiar faces next season. Despite rumors and criticism, coach Urban Meyer said Monday he believes UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will be back calling plays next season. And quarterback John Brantley dispelled rumors that he was thinking about transferring from Florida. Addazio has received much of the blame for the offense's struggles. The Gators are currently ranked 82nd in total offense. And if Addazio is the most frequent name when discussing the offense's failures, Brantley isn't far behind. He has thrown eight touchdowns and seven interceptions in his first season as Florida's starting quarterback. His inability to run the option has led to a decrease in playing time as he is now splitting time with Addazia two other quarterbacks. But Brantley denied ever contemplating a transfer from Gainesville. SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 14 0 Redskins owner Daniel Snyder gave Donovan McNabb a five-year, $78 million contract extension. Imagine how much he would've paid for a physically fit quarterback who runs the two-minute drill better than Rex Grossman. .UF QB John Brantley didn't rule out losing to App State this weekend, which got me thinking: What level of team would it take for him to guarantee victory at this point? Men's competitive flag football champs? Today's question: Do you think Steve Addazio is to blame for UF's struggles on offense? Vote on alligatorSports.org E The start time for the UF-FSU matchup on Nov. 27 will be determined later this week. The game will either be at 3:30 p.m. on ABC or at 7 p.m. on ESPN or ESPN2.

14, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 Meyer, Pouncey point toward energy as reason for offense's struggles FOOTBALL, from page 13 "My dad called me last weekend right when he landed back from Nashville (Tenn.)," Brantley said. "He didn't know what was going on, and I had no idea either. I haven't said anything to him about that. He has never said anything to me about that. Those are 0 just all rumors." a Looking for energy on offense: Florida's offense hasn't just lost three first-rounders in the last two NFL Drafts. Evidently, it's missing something else. On Monday, Meyer pointed toward a lack of energy as one of the offense's problems. "I don't see an offense full of life," he said. "I don't see a lot of energy. That's one thing as a head coach that concerns me. That's all personnel-based and successbased. And you try to recruit those types of personalities (that bring energy)." "I don't see an offense full of life. I don't see a lot of energy. That's one thing as a head coach that concerns me. That's all personnelbased and success-based. And you try to recruit those types of personalities (that bring energy)." Urban Meyer UF football coach The offense is averaging about 29 points per game (50th in the nation), and Brantley is the third-worst rated passer in the conference. Meyer said dual-threat quarterback Jordan Reed's role may expand Saturday to help bring some life to the group. "[Reed] does provide some energy," Meyer said. "Just the way he plays. You see the energy level, which is obviously critical at the center of the offense." The freshman completed three of seven passes against South Carolina, one of them for a touchdown. But so far the energy provided by players such as Tim Tebow, Maurkice Pouncey, Percy Harvin, Aaron Hernandez and Riley Cooper has not been matched by this season's unit. "You lose two first-rounders on offense and a lot of great players playing in the NFL now," center Mike Pouncey said. "You lose a lot of energy and emotion toward the game. Guys that really show while they are playing that they love it and they bring other guys up around them. I think that's where we were hurting all year. Easley back practicing with team: Freshman Dominique Easley was not on UF's travel roster for the Vanderbilt game and his status with the team was in doubt. But Easley is practicing with the team again as of Monday, according to Meyer. The defensive tackle has recorded three tackles in four games this season. He arrived to Florida as a fivestar recruit, according to Rivals.com. Steven H. Keys / Alligator Staff UF center Mike Pouncey said the loss of offensive leaders to the NFL has caused a lack of passion and energy on that side of the ball for the Gators this season.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 15 Florida's rough season just part of college football's revolving cycle ew moments of UF's beatdown loss to South Carolina could be described as poetic, but there was at least one. Early in the fourth quarter, Florida's band struck up Coldplay's "Viva La Vida." The Gators trailed 29-7 and had just turned the ball over on downs, and it would've been hard to choose a more appropriate song thanks to the first line: "I used to rule the world." And that summed up exactly how most of the 90,885 watching Florida get pummeled by South Carolina must have felt at that moment. Remember when Tim Tebow was running around in The Swamp and a trip to the Southeastern Conference Championship felt like a birthright? Saturday night was a long way from there. By then, it was clear there would be no SEC title, and the reality of watching Steve Spurrier's boys romp in The Swamp had set in. It effectively meant the end of the season, and that's something Gators fans haven't felt in quite a while. In the last rough year, 2007, Florida still had Tebow's Heisman Trophy campaign to look forward to. Even in somewhat of a rebuilding year, it was a shock. But please, hold the tears. This is karma. No one gets to win all the time. Teams have to suck at least occasionally for the world to stay balanced. Sometimes they have a pitiful offense and lose a lot. Mike McCall McCallin' It Like I See It mrrccall@alligator org Twitter @McCalinIt S o m e times they get youknow-whatslapped by the Gamecocks. W h a t goes around c o m e s around, and Gators fans were due for some bad moments. So the powers that be had them lose to the team that ruined last season (Alabama) and then three former Florida coaches: LSU's Billy Gonzalez, Mississippi State's Dan Mullen and South Carolina's Spurrier -men who helped set the standard for exciting UF offenses that this year's team fell so frustratingly far short of. And the loss to the Gamecocks was a throwback to the win that started it all. Run back the opening kick and get blown out? Sounds like Ohio State in 2006. Meanwhile, they have to sit and watch Cam Newton guide Auburn to an 11-0 start and likely lock up a Heisman Trophy. They have to dream about what life would be like if Newton was still in Gainesville. These aren't coincidences. They're what had to happen, and experiencing this is what makes true fans. The delirious run of Florida athletics from 2006-09 was so much sweeter for those who suffered through down seasons, much like how watching my favorite school win back-to-back conference titles was more special after seeing just three wins in a two-year period. People who enrolled at UF in the fall of 2006 and graduated on time (oops) left having seen a total of three national championships, a Heisman and an undefeated regular season. Life isn't supposed to work that way. For those who showed up in Gainesville this year: bad timing. You arrived for the payback phase. And based on the wild success of years past, it can't be over yet. True, a trip to Atlanta is still possible for the Chick-fil-A Bowl, but that wouldn't be the karmic cherry atop this season. Three bowls match up the SEC and Big Ten, and Illinois is a win away from being bowl-eligible. ZOOOOOOOOK Jones hit a three to give UF decisive lead WOMEN'S HOOPS, from page 13_ of steals off inbounds plays and sparked the Gators to a 12-3 lead in the first four minutes. But it was the play of Jones that would propel the Gators to a second straight victory and berth in the semifinals of the NIT. Jones had a team-high 19 points on a number of clutch shots, including a 3-of5 showing from beyond the arc. "[Jaterra Bonds] led us in the first game, and then I led us this game, but next game is going to be someone else," Jones said. "It's a different person stepping up each game, and that makes our jobs a lot easier." After substituting into a smaller lineup featuring freshmen Brittany Shine, Deaundra Young and Bonds, the Gators (2-0) extended their lead to 21-7 thanks to the fast tempo Butler and Co. have promised. Shine showed off her best John Wall dance moves before the game and the impersonation carried over into her performance on the floor. She drained a three on a fast break then grabbed a long pass over the defense for an easy layup after a Charlotte miss. Shine totaled nine points in just two minutes to propel the Gators to a 14-point lead. "I just tried to be a little sparkplug out there," Shine said. "I just try to bring energy every time I get in [the game]." But Charlotte fought back, consistently beating the interior of UF's defense with dribble penetration en route to 26 points in the paint in the first half. Entering the locker rooms, UF's lead was down to a slim four points. After the break, Charlotte's defense began forcing the issue, bringing two and three defenders with a full-court press. The teams traded baskets for much of the second half with neither dominating the action. Just 6:55 into the second half, Charlotte took its first lead since the opening minutes. But Jones stepped up for the Gators once again. She drained a crucial three-pointer that put UF up 53-51 -a lead it wouldn't relinquish the rest of the way. "As long as we keep fighting and that effort stays consistent like that then I feel good about our chances." Amanda Butler UF women's basketball coach But the game once again was determined in the final minutes. Center Azania Stewart snatched two key boards and made two free throws in that time to add to her double-double totals of 13 points and 10 rebounds. "As long as we keep fighting and that effort stays consistent like that, then I feel good about our chances," Butler said. "I didn't think we played consistently with toughness until it really, really mattered. "When you can win ugly, and when you grind it out against a good team like that you've got to walk away feeling really good and confident." Florida's next game will be in the semifinals on Thursday at 8 p.m. against DePaul. ^ingator ine rnoto UF guard Jordan Jones racked up a team-high 19 points against Charlotte on Monday. Texas RB calls it quits after multiple concussions THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUSTIN, Texas -Texas sophomore running back Tre' Newton, son of former Dallas Cowboys lineman Nate Newton, announced Monday that he is giving up football after several concussions over his college and high school careers. Newton missed last week's loss to Oklahoma State after sustaining a concussion in a loss to Kansas State on Nov. 6. Team doctors advised him to give up football to avoid long-term problems, Newton said. Newton said the decision to quit football was his, but also said his father told him: "You have to think about the future because football is going to end someday." "As much as I love football, this is one of the hardest decisions of my life," Newton said. "[But] football isn't forever." Newton also sustained a concussion in 2009, but was still Texas' leading rusher that season with 552 yards. He had rushed for 229 yards and three touchdowns this season. Newton said he had more than one concussion in high school. He will stay on scholarship and work to finish his degree in corporate communications. "He's earned his scholarship here," coach Mack Brown said. "He's a great young man and leader." Newton said he doesn't remember the play on which he got hurt against Kansas State. He did not practice last week and met with team doctors and his family a few hours before the Oklahoma State game to make his final decision. Brown said Newton will remain close to the team and could help coach running backs next season. "We try to get them in the mainstream [of the program] to rebuild their identity. Your concern you have is your friends won't look at you the same way. You were a guy who could Newton help them win, now you can't do that anymore," Brown said. Newton welcomed the chance to stay with his teammates, offering to help anyway he can "even if it's just running to give somebody water." Texas senior wide receiver James Kirkendoll said the team didn't know of Newton's decision until Monday morning. "He's a true teammate and a great football player," Kirkendoll said. "It's one of the tough things you have to deal with in this sport." With Newton's career now over and junior Foswhitt Whittaker nursing a sore shoulder, junior Cody Johnson is listed as the starter for Saturday's game against Florida Atlantic (4-5). Johnson leads Texas (4-6) with 361 yards and five touchdowns. Texas must beat Florida Atlantic and Texas A&M to become bowl eligible and avoid the Longhorns' first losing season since 1997.

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2010 NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE Dolphins place Pennington on IR, sign Ramsey THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DAVIE -Chad Pennington's latest shoulder injury is "long-term," but Chad Henne might be available for Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said Monday. The Dolphins signed veteran Patrick Ramsey on Monday and placed Pennington on injured reserve. On his first play of the season Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, Pennington re-injured his right shoulder, which has already undergone surgery three times. Third-string quarterback Tyler Thigpen is the most likely starter against the Bears after finishing Sunday's victory over Tennessee when injuries sidelined Miami's top two quarterbacks. Injury issues weren't limited to quarterback. Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long hurt his shoulder, and his availability is uncertain. Like Long, AFC sack leader Cameron Wake (hip) and safety Chris Clemons (groin) finished Sunday's game on the bench. "We have a lot of guys bumped up right now," Sparano said. "We're sorting through it all." As Sparano spoke, Henne was in the training room being treated for a left knee injury that sidelined him in the third quarter. Turnaround time is brief for the Dolphins (5-4), with only a single practice -today -between games. That makes it less likely Henne will be able to recover enough to start, but Sparano was noncommittal. "We'll see. Right now we are day to day," he said. "Tyler will be ready, depending on what Chad Henne does this week." "We have a lot of guys bumped up right now. We're sorting through it all." Tony Sparano Miami coach Thigpen entered Sunday's game in the fourth quarter and led an 85-yard touchdown drive that sealed the 29-17 win. He went 4 for 6 for 64 yards and a score, a remarkably polished performance considering he has been mostly a spectator at practice this season. "As a No. 3, that's what it is -you don't get any reps," Thigpen said. "The No. 1 gets about 80 percent, and the 2 gets about 20 percent of the reps. But the 3 has to just sit back there and mentally rep every play." AP Photo Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne injured his left knee against the Titans on Sunday. His status for Thursday's game is in question.
