Gators who want to assess their
sexual health can receive free test-
ing today.
In recognition of World AIDS
Day, GatorWell will provide free
HIV testing at the Florida Gymna-
sium from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The event, sponsored by the Col-
lege of Health and Human Perfor-
mance and Eta Sigma Kappa, pro-
vides students with an opportunity
to become aware of their HIV status
and learn prevention techniques to
keep themselves safe.
"You can't tell if a person is HIV
positive by looking at them," said
Samantha Evans, Sexual Health
Educator for GatorWell. "The only
true way to know is to get an HIV
test."
World AIDS Day, observed Dec.
1 each year, is dedicated to raising
awareness worldwide about HIV/
AIDS and the importance of know-
ing one's status.
According to statistics released
by GatorWell, only 31 percent of UF
students know their HIV status.
"We have a flier that says,


'Check up before you hook up,"'
Evans said. "It's better to be safe
than sorry."
About 1,000 AIDS cases and 645
HIV cases were reported to the Ala-
chua County Health Department as
of September 2010.

"It's better to be safe
than sorry."
Samantha Evans
sexual health educator

As of 2008, 117,612 diagnosed
AIDS cases in Florida were re-
ported to the Centers for Disease
Control, making the state the third
highest reported rate of HIV/AIDS
in the country behind New York
and California.
The testing will be by appoint-
ment only. Students can make an
appointment by calling GatorWell
at 352-273-4450.
GatorWell also offers additional
free HIV testing by appointment
Wednesday afternoons and Friday
mornings at the GatorWell main
office on the first floor of the Coun-
seling and Wellness Center on Ra-
dio Road.

The crash occurred at 8:30 a.m.


By ALYSSA VILLARREAL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Southbound lanes on Interstate
75 were closed Tuesday morning
for more than two hours after a
fatal car crash shut down the high-
way just north of Newberry Road.
Lisa King, a 41-year-old
Gainesville woman, was pro-
nounced dead at the scene of the
crash.
According to Florida Highway


Patrol, King was headed north on
Interstate 75 at about 8:30 a.m. and
passing vehicles when she lost
control of her black 2006 Toyota
sedan and ended up
counter-clockwise
Local on the southbound
News lanes.
FHP spokesman,
Lt. Pat Riordan, said as King's
Toyota crossed the median to the
southbound lanes it was T-boned
by a Dodge truck.


"The car was so destroyed I
couldn't tell the model of the Toy-
ota," Riordan said.
The Dodge Ram was travel-
ing southbound on the interstate
by James Edward Bloomer, 63, of
Dade City, who suffered minor
injuries to his wrist at the scene of
the accident.
Bloomer's wife, Veronica Irene
Bloomer, 61, was taken to Shands
Hospital at UF with non-life-
threatening injuries.
The southbound lanes were re-
opened around 11 a.m.

In Fine Arts C, Room 310, 240
photos are taken in 180 minutes.
A man wearing white-framed
eyeglasses sits in the middle of
the room, facing the screen of a
MacBook. He is unsure where
his idea will take him, but he has
a clear vision.
Jorge Perez Gallego, along
with six other graphic design
graduate students, launched
"ILocal" during Art Bash.
As part of the campaign, the
"I Local" photo booth will
be at the Union Street Farmers'
Market from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to-
night.
The campaign aims to create
an online database that provides
local advice from residents to
construct a community where
neighbors know one another.
"People always find the an-
swers on the Internet, but it is
not nearly as fun," Perez said. "If
someone can help you, it would
be your neighbor."
Campaign members are in
charge of taking pictures of at-
tendees with a sign that reads


what they do on a daily basis.
Participants are able to access
the database through Facebook,
but soon all the pictures will be
displayed on http://locaham.
org.
"People always find the
answers on the Inter-
net, but it is not nearly
as fun. If someone can
help you, it would be your

Campaign member

Robert Finkel, a member of
the group, said in order to attract
Gainesville residents, members
decided to carry out their second
campaign downtown.
The group realized the Farm-
ers Market brought the com-
munity together by selling local
goods, which is the principle it
hopes to transmit with "ILo-
cal."
Attendees can take home
pamphlets that explain the mis-
sion of the campaign.

* STAFF ANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT
THE PLANNED WILDLIFE REMOVAL.

By MERDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local residents herded into a small audito-
rium Tuesday night to speak up for the bison
and horses in Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park.
In the Doyle Conner Building on 34th street, about
90 people gathered, leaving standing room only.
They listened to David Jowers, park manager
and biologists, present the Florida Park Service's
draft plan to remove the majority of the park's bi-
son and horses, including all of the males.
Park staff answered questions that many in the
audience had been wondering since the plan first
came to light in September.
"Are you going to literally kill these creatures?"
activist Lisa Grossman asked.
"No, we don't plan to kill anything," said Dan
Pearson, environmental specialist for the Florida


Park Service.
"Would you purposely sell them to people you
think are going to slaughter them?" she asked.
"I hope not," he answered.

Senate's resolution to denounce the removal of the

bison and horses, which was passed Tuesday.
Hart read part of the resolution, which stated
the Senate "implores the Florida Park Service to
find another solution."
He received a round of applause.
Jim Weimer, a park biologist, said one of the
reasons the bison and horse herds are being culled
is because they are not vital to the ecosystem.
"There's a big difference between natural re-
sources and cultural resources," he said. "The live-
stock have no ecological role in these resources."


JanSport founder hosts film fest


Three films were shown


By NADINE KORIOTH
Alligator Contributing Writer

JoAnn Demarc's 7-year-old
JanSport is barely blue any-
more.
But Demarc, 51, who uses her
backpack to carry items like her
diabetes test kit and coffee cup,
said it's still as sturdy as ever.
She attended the JanSport:
Telluride Film Festival on Tues-
day night in hopes of winning
a new backpack and learning
more about the company she is


so fond of.
The event, hosted by Reitz
Union Board Entertainment,
featured three documentaries
and giveaways such as water
bottles, backpacks and T-shirts.
According to Abby Swartz,
co-director of the RUB Enter-
tainment film committee, about
100 people attended.
Two of the films shown,
"Bag It" and "Man Alone on the
Wall," were part of the Telluride
Film Festival in Colorado this
year. The third was a biography


on Jansport co-founder Skip
...II, who was at the event.
JanSport is a sponsor of the
festival, which offers grants to
environmental filmmakers to
produce documentaries they
otherwise could not afford to
do,' .. .- II said in an interview.
.* ..II started the company
in 1967 with his cousin when
they graduated from college.
"The idea of starting a busi-
ness that incorporated our pas-
sionate outdoors lifestyle was
very appealing at the time when
we didn't want to get a real job,"
he said.


Off Campus Life office


offers stress solutions


By ANNIE BOGGS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's Office of Off Campus Life
is encouraging students to take ad-
vantage of free massages, yoga and
board games to take their minds off
looming exams.
This week and next, the office
is promoting stress management
during the nerve-wracking time be-
fore exams with 50-minute "stress
breaks."
Although final exams don't
start until Dec. 11, the stress breaks
will start Wednesday and continue
Thursday and Monday at 11:45
a.m.
"We wanted to do something
that was pertinent to student life
this semester," said Leah Villan-
ueva, the graduate assistant for Off
Campus Life.
The breaks combine stress-
management information with free
snacks and activities. They will be
located at Peabody Hall room 411,
according to Off Campus Life Di-
rector Nora Kilroy.
"It's a high-stress time of year for
most students," Kilroy said. "It's
something new we tried this year."
On Wednesday, a yoga instruc-
tor from Gainesville Health and
Fitness Center will put on a demon-
stration for students. On Thursday,


there will be five-minute massages
by a therapist from the Southwest
Recreation Center.
On the last day of the stress
breaks, there will be board games
and other activities for stressed out
students to play. Jenga, Candyland,
Apples to Apples and Taboo are
among the games that will be avail-
able.
"I definitely think they're going
to be successful," Villanueva said.
"They're activities to get students'
minds off the constant stress of
school."
The activities promote learning
about stress management in a prac-
tical way with a lecture-styled for-
mat, Villanueva said.
On "Not only does it
Campus feel good, but a mas-
sage is actually good
for you," said Villanueva, who cited
muscle tension relief and circulation
as the health benefits.
In addition to the stress breaks,
other facilities at UF will be offer-
ing special programs during exam
week.
The Student Recreation & Fitness
Center will be offering eight hours
of non-stop yoga Dec. 14. For those
hitting the books, Library West and
Marston Science Library will have
extended hours before and during
exams, remaining open until 4 a.m.

Peace Ribbon honoring fallen soldiers comes to UF


UF senior Shannon Parrish lays out letters on her Peace Ribbon for Staff Sgt. John
night in the Reitz Union Basement.


Reiners on Tuesday


* THE PEACE RIBBON
PROJECT BEGAN IN 2005.

By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Staff Sgt. John Reiners was a
Florida Gators fan. If you wanted
to find him, you would just have
to look for his blue Gators : :-. l I
cap.
Reiners was killed Feb. 13 when
a roadside bomb was detonated in
Afghanistan.
So when Jacque Betz got a call
from Reiners' mother to make a
memorial panel for him, she knew
it had to be Gators-themed.
Reiners' panel is one of a few
new additions to the 400-plus col-
lection that makes up the Peace
Ribbon Project started by Betz.
The Peace Ribbon Project made
its first appearance at UF on the
Plaza of the Americas on Tuesday
with 25 panels, including two for
soldiers from Gainesville who died
in war.
Each piece of 2-feet-by-3-feet
cloth in the ribbon represents sol-
diers and civilians who have been
killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan
wars.


"Our goal is to keep mak-
ing panels until all the troops are
brought home and the wars are
over," Betz said.
The project is part of CodePink:
Women for Peace and has traveled
across the United States since it be-
gan with 25 pieces in 2005.
Michelle Harris, president and
founder of the Campus CodePink
for Peace chapter at UF, said she
was happy about the interest in
the project as students passed by
the tent.
A workshop was held in the
basement of the Reitz Union,
where a panel was made for Rein-
ers in orange and blue fabric with
a mini Gators jersey.
Harris said she got involved
with CodePink, a women's anti-
war group with the goal of bring-
ing the troops home, because it is
very women- and family-orientat-
ed. She said war is an issue that
directly affects families.
"I've always been interested in
people's stories and showing injus-
tices," Harris said. "I guess unjust
wars fall under that, too."
Betz said the ribbon and the
panels serve as a reminder of what
war does and who it kills.


Senate Republicans' letter calls for blocking most bills


It would halt Democratic legislation


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON - Senate Republi-
cans intend to block action on virtually all
Democratic-backed legislation unrelated to
tax cuts and government spending in the
current postelection session of Congress,
officials said Tuesday, adding that the lead-
ership has quietly collected signatures on a
letter pledging to carry out the strategy.
If carried out, it would doom Democratic-


backed attempts to end the Pentagon's prac-
tice of discharging openly gay members of
the military service and give legal status to
young illegal immigrants who join the mili-
tary or attend college.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has
made both measures a priority as Democrats
attempt to enact legislation long sought by
groups that supported them in the recent
midterm elections.
A nuclear arms treaty with Russia that


President Barack Obama wants ratified
would not be affected, since any debate
would take place under different rules than
those that apply to legislation. Even so, its
passage is not assured as Republicans are
seeking concessions from
the White House.
National It was not known how
News many of the Senate's 42 Re-
publicans had signed the
draft letter, which the leadership intends to
make public quickly.
Senate Democrats need 60 votes to over-


come any delaying tactics, meaning they
could be thwarted if 41 Republicans join in
the commitment.
Democrats' chances of passing politically
charged legislation will dim when the new
Congress convenes in January, since Repub-
licans will take control of the House and
gain more Senate seats.
The letter comes after comments by Sen-
ate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell
and others in his party that the voters made
it clear in the elections they want lawmakers
to focus on economic issues.

Editorial

Asked, told

Pentagon study

was unnecessary
Lindsey Graham should probably quiet down now.
Saying Sunday that the military's "don't ask, don't
tell" policy prohibiting openly gay members to serve
wouldn't be "going anywhere," the Republican senator from
South Carolina is sure to be just smitten with the Pentagon's
report released Tuesday.
The Pentagon's 10-month study on the effects of a repeal
of "don't ask, don't tell" found enormously positive results,
including 70 percent of those surveyed admitting the over-
turn of the military's legal discriminatory policy would have
either positive or no results. But perhaps the greatest finding
of the study was simply that most members of the military
just don't care who they fight alongside.
Based on the responses of 115,000 troops and 44,200 troop
spouses, the study will -. _*:.-- ,i 11 end debate on a ban that has
already been ruled unconstitutional.
"Don't ask, don't tell" has already been overturned in the
House of Representatives but was blocked in the Senate by
every Republican and Arkansas Democrats.
Sen. John McCain, the leading force behind the Senate's
refusal to overturn the policy, said the military is at its highest
point in professionalism and capability, "so to somehow al-
lege that this policy has been damaging the military is simply
false."
We're dismayed at McCain's inability to see the inherent
harm in forcing members of our military to remain silent, and
we're dismayed at his encouragement for the continuity of
federally enforced homosexism.
But most importantly, we're dismayed our government
had to conduct a 10-month study to conclude what many of
us have never doubted.
A gay soldier's blood is just as worthy as a heterosexual's,
and to conclude anything else is to endorse bigotry.
While we understand the Senate Republicans cite the lack
of permitted debate on other unrelated provisions in the
defense bill in which the overturn of "don't ask don't tell"
was attached, what we don't understand is their problematic
and subversive attempts to scapegoat the "lack of debate" as
the reason they killed the defense bill and with it a repeal of
"don't ask, don't tell," and coincidentally, in one giant mo-
tion, the DREAM Act.
While we lend enormous support for continued debate on
most issues, especially on bills with such a high price tag as
the defense bill, we realize there's simply no excuse or reason
to debate condemning discrimination.
To request debate on the issue of overturning "don't ask,
don't tell" is to claim the other side, the ugly side of discrimi-
nation, has a valid viewpoint and should be heard.
We should all be as abhorred with senators requesting de-
bate on ending "don't ask, don't tell" as we would be with
debate on civil rights issues with blacks, women, religious mi-
norities and any other group who is discriminated against.
And those who counter that this issue is different because
it involves the military currently engaged in two wars, and
now possibly three with North Korea rearing its weaponry,
just lost their last excuse with the Pentagon's study released
Tuesday.
We're glad a large majority of military members support
what a majority of Americans have long known and never
needed a despicable study to deduce: Bigotry has no place in
the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Columnist mourns Nielsen's death


There are a lot of important things going on in the
world right now. WikiLeaks reared its ugly head
back into the national spotlight with the release of
diplomatic cables and a lot of juicy gossip.
North Korea is putting on the political and military
equivalent of a toddler's temper tantrum, the Senate just
passed food safety regulations, the Pentagon's review of
"don't ask, don't tell" was released Tuesday and there's a
climate summit going on in Cancmn.
There are nuclear talks with Iran, Comcast is fighting
over Netflhx usage, there's a problem with the Prius, home
prices are slowly rising, CBS' "The Early Show" is being
restructured and a weekend of NFL and college -... .l: :II
to talk about is all in the air as we embrace the beginning
of December.
But there's one piece of news that hit me straight in
the chest when I heard it this week, one piece that af-
fected me more than all the other stories pulsing the
newswire.
Leslie Nielsen had died in his sleep of complications
from pneumonia Sunday.
For some, this might have been just a bummer. For
others, it was just another nameless celebrity they never
knew. For me, one of my comedic heroes had moved
out of town - for good.
Recently, Nielsen's been featured in films like "Scary
Movie 3" and "Scary Movie 4" in addition to "Spy
Hard," "Mr. Magoo" and "Superhero Movie." If one
wasn't to know Nielsen, he/ she would sound like a ter-
rible judge of movie merit. Nielsen was so much more
than that.
My first exposure to Nielsen was the 1980 film
"Airplane!"which I watch regularly and plan to watch

memorial to Leslie's life. Nielsen

school special. It was the thing I'd
come home to watch and something that always guar-
anteed me to be on the floor laughing even if it was the
11th or 12th time I've watched it. My parents didn't
care there's a brief scene of nudity because they knew
how much the movie meant to me. I'd try to convert my
friends too, so someone would get my references when
I walked around school screaming Dr. Rumack's lines.
"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley!"
I don't know what it was about "Airplane!" or what
it was about Leslie Nielsen that drew me to this com-
edy over the Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler movies at the
time, but I felt it was a bit more intellectual than the fart
jokes in the modern comedies at the time.
Leslie started out as a serious actor, but that role in
"Airplane!" changed him. He was featured in the TV
series "Police Squad," and then moved on to the Police
Squad films that were aptly titled "The Naked Gun."
These films, the first two made by the same directorial
team as "Airplane!" took an absurd twist on detective
movies and enhanced Nielsen's stock even further.
Nielsen's name is now synonymous with spoof films,
and he's one star Hollywood will truly miss.

Gender extremists
While setting up for a party a few weeks ago, I
noticed one of my female friends trying to hoist
a large oak table and carry it into the next room.
Appropriately enough, I asked if she needed my help. Af-
ter all, the table was heavy and she was just one person.
I never thought that such an innocent offer would war-
rant the kind of whoopass that my friend was about to
deliver.
Among other things, she exclaimed, "My biggest pet
peeve is when people ask if I need help with something.
I've done more labor-intensive work than anyone here, but
people insist that I need help just because I have .: .... I:,
Needless to say, I haven't offered her help with manual
labor since then.
Let us ignore science for a moment. You know: the
empirically proven fact that males, on average, are physi-
cally stronger than females.
Let's examine this from a simple human-interaction
point of view. One individual tries to do something, an-
other offers help, and the pair usually manages the work
more efficiently and effectively as a result. This is the
way Neolithic human society has always worked. And
although gender roles have traditionally shaped this dis-
tribution of labor, they have absolutely no bearing on the
communal instinct to help one's fellow human. I would
have made the same offer to a male friend.
There seem to be two major camps of feminists. The
members of one group believe in equality and focus on
very real modern issues such as disparity in wages be-
tween men and women. They serve an essential role in
modern society, in which feminism has come under attack
because of the irrational and circular arguments made by


Kyoto cannot be supported by climate

"Don't ask, don't tell" unconstitutional
The idea of the "don't ask, don't tell"
policy is ridiculous.
First, the point of the rule is to "allow"
the soldiers to serve. We shouldn't be "al-
lowing" them to serve, we should be en-
couraging their dedication to this country
even with all the hatred and discrimina-
tion they face here.
Second, many proponents of the rule
say it keeps the heterosexual soldiers saf-
er.
If that were true it would mean homo-
sexual soldiers are dangerous, and that the
rule actually does something to stop them
from being dangerous.
Also, the law only hides the fact they
are different and doesn't stop anything
from happening.
The main reason homophobia truly ex-
ists in this country is all thanks to Chris-
tianity and other religions. Although this
might be just one thing to keep in mind
when someone tells you "it's in the Bible,"
remember the things the Church have his-
torically been wrong about: heliocentric-
ity, slavery, a flat earth, etc.
Many people need to recall the First
Amendment rights that guarantees a free-
dom of religion.
This amendment was made to create a
country not built based on a religion, but
rather a community of people with differ-
ing ideas and freedoms to believe what-
ever you want to believe.

David members of the second group. These
Mendelsohn individuals, who represent a highly
UWire vocal minority of the feminist move-
ment, have learned to extrapolate
feminism to every domain of daily
life. They are hypersensitive to criticism, actively look for
evidence of sexism and find it everywhere.
As one who cares deeply about equality issues, it pains
me to see legitimate issues hijacked by those who use the
movement as a method of personal vindication, like when
my friend felt slighted that I offered her help moving fur-
niture.
She is one of those "feminists" that bandy about the
term without demonstrating a true understanding of what
it means. On account of their frenzied finger-pointing and
paranoia, feminists as a whole have come to be perceived
as extremists that eschew showering and relish their arm-
pit hair.
Along with giving real feminists a bad name, the pseu-
do-feminists alienate men as well. Hypersensitized by
the narrative that they have imagined, they are quick to
accuse a man of implicitly belittling a woman when he of-
fers to help and ignoring her plight when he refuses. The
innocuous act of kindness, generosity or even apathy is
interpreted as an intentional and malicious attack on the
sovereignty of women everywhere. I'm not saying that a
man's actions are always absent of ulterior motives; I am
saying that as adults we should be able to tell the differ-
ence.

uld choose battles
the feminists gone?," and I think it's at least in part be-
cause of this vocal minority.
The stigma caused by this minority is a real one, as ev-
idenced by many of the comments on past 'Prince' articles
related to feminism. While varying in content, the gen-
eral tone of these comments is, "Enough already. There
is no conspiracy to put women down. Get over it." In
this way, a very vocal minority of extremists have effec-
tively pushed the issue beyond the sphere of reasonable
discourse. In complaining about unimportant issues, they
are reducing the urgency of the real ones. No one wants
to hear any more about feminism once they've learned to
associate feminism with complaining.
Once this association is made, all bets are off; real femi-
nism has no chance.
Feminism is not a selling point, nor is it a label that au-
tomatically legitimizes what you are saying. Feminism is
a school of thought and philosophy that must not be used
as a street-corner soap box, lest everything it stands for be
cheapened or destroyed.
It is easy to make a point by shouting the loudest or by
inundating your opponent with a mass of statistics that he
or she cannot possibly begin to decode. But the fight for
race and gender equality is not one that is won by attri-
tion, by wearing your enemies down until they no longer
have the energy to fight.
It's a hearts-and-minds campaign in which you aim
to turn those who once stood in your way. I understand
where they're coming from. But gender extremists cannot
hope to effect real change without first learning to pick
their battles.

Student juggling group


lan Eisner, president of the UF juggling club, Objects in Motion, practices juggling on
the Plaza of the Americas on Tuesday afternoon.


brings circus
By CHELSEA HULL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Ian Elsner puts safety first: No fire in-
doors, and new members are not allowed to
play with knives.
Elsner is the president of Objects in Mo-
tion, the official UF juggling club. The club
will hold its first solo performance, "Objects
in Motion Live! and in 3D" Saturday at 2
p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom.
"As a club we've wanted to do a show-
case for a long time," Elsner said. "Seniors
will be able to do solos, and it will let new
members get a taste of performance."
Objects in Motion has more than 50 active
members, with an average of 30 participants
at each activity, he said.
The club meets every Wednesday at 9
p.m. and represents all types of juggling.
Contact jugglers balance an acrylic ball
on their bodies and allow it to roll across
their arms, shoulders and hands.
Pol spinners twirl sticks with small
weights tied to them with colorful string or
ribbon. Jugglers toss clubs and balls alone or
in groups.
Outside of practice, members often get
together to juggle on the Plaza of the Ameri-
cas.
The jugglers try to draw in bystanders
with what they call "the free juggling les-
son" - guaranteed success or your money
back.
Elsner said 90 percent of the people he
approaches tell him that they have below av-
erage coordination, which, as a statistics ma-
jor, he is quick to point out is a mathematic
impossibility.
"You're human, so you're actually pretty
good at this intuitively," he said. "All we
have to do is spend about half an hour with
you to teach you the method."
Andi Clinton, a ' ,..1..- junior, was one


to campus
of those unsure bystanders less than three
years ago. Despite a bit of stage fright, she
now performs regularly with Objects in Mo-
tion and can juggle, spin pol and ride a uni-
cycle.
"I think what is most important about our
club is that it's really chill, and that anyone
can do it," she said. "I ride a unicycle and I
trip over my own feet sometimes."
While juggling may not be as difficult as
it seems, when it comes to juggling knives or
fire, club members act with added precau-
tion.
"All we have to do is spend about
half an hour with you to teach you
the method."
lan Eisner
President of Objects in Motion

Fire juggling is never done on campus.
Instead, the jugglers meet at a member's
house, where the lawn and trees have been
hosed down.
Elsner is sure to keep emergency supplies
of water and fire blankets, and the lighter
fluid is stored away from the ... I 1.- ...
Juggling knives are also weighted, and are
designed to look real. They look and sound
dangerous, but are otherwise harmless.
Elsner is happy to say that, due to plan-
ning and attentiveness, no one has ever been
injured during a meeting, practice or perfor-
mance.
Both Elsner and Clinton have made jug-
gling a part of their lives and look forward
to continue their passion after college.
"Once it clicks, once you sort of get into
the rhythm, it feels amazing," Elsner said.
"It's not only one instance; it's a constant
recalibration of your throws. You're sort of
feeling the way that the balls are moving
and it's an extension of something that goes
on for a while, like a conversation."


Senators supported canceling classes the day before Thanksgiving


SPEECH, from page 1


During this term, SG partnered with the UF Bookstore to
establish a textbook rental service and held a tax-free text-
book day, which, according to Charles, saved students thou-
sands of dollars.
In the Student Senate meeting :.1.. *ll. the speech, Al-
exandra Moore, allocations chairwoman of the Unite Party,
discussed future international relief trip hearings to decide
how to allocate $20,000 for trip funding.
"These trips are usually funded by the Health Outreach


[Association], but that money goes to dental and medical stu-
dents," said Sen. Severin Walstad, who represents the Unite
Party. "Now the Allocations Committee can fund under-
graduates in their efforts."
The Senate unanimously passed resolutions concerning
the bison removal from Paynes Prairie and the faculty senate
proposal to cancel classes on the Wednesday before Thanks-
giving.
Sen. Andrew Hart, who represents the Student Alliance
party, was one of the authors of the resolution condemning
the bison removal.
He said preserving the bison habitats is important.


"It's something that is profound to the cultural heritage
of the state of Florida," said Hart. "As the fourth most popu-
lous state in the nation, we are quickly losing resources, so
it's important to hold onto national treasures for current and
future generations."
For Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kleponis, the resolu-
tion supporting the cancellation of classes on the Wednesday
before Thanksgiving was personal. A Miami native, he left
at 5 a.m. on Thanksgiving to beat the traffic home on what he
called the busiest traffic day of the year.
"Giving students the extra day off really gives them a
window so they can get home safely," he said.

Police: Grandma threw


toddler off walkway


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


McLEAN, Va. - A Virginia toddler
was :,11 '," out of a shopping mall with
relatives when her grandmother suddenly
flung her over a railing, sending the girl on
a fatal plunge to the pavement several sto-
ries below, police said Tuesday.
Carmela Dela Rosa, 50, of Fairfax was
arrested and charged with murder, said
prosecutor Ian Rodway. Authorities said
interviews with witnesses and Dela Rosa
led them to the conclusion that the girl's fall
Monday night was no accident, but they
couldn't yet explain why the grandmother
threw her.
The 212-year-old child, Angelyn Ogdoc,
died in a hospital several hours later. She
fell from a walkway linking the mall's third
floor to the parking garage's sixth floor at
Tysons Corner Center in Fairfax, just south
of Washington, D.C.

Tawny Wright said Dela Rosa was leav-
ing the mall with the toddler and two other
adult relatives when she abruptly picked
the girl up and threw her over the railing.


Dela Rosa was being held without bond,
and a preliminary hearing in the case was
set for Jan. 4, Rodway said. Deputy Public
Defender Dawn Butorac, who is represent-
ing Dela Rosa, declined to comment on the
case.
No one answered at Dela Rosa's home
in Fairfax on Tuesday morning, but neigh-
bor Russell Jackson, 51, described them as
"a happy family" and said Dela Rosa lived
with her husband and a son and often cared
for her granddaughter.
"She was a sweet, hap-
National py ': 1: " said Jackson,
News who lives in the rowhouse
next door.
Dela Rosa would sometimes leave the
blinds in the front window open when she
was caring for the girl during the day.
"You could see them in the window
waving at you," he said, adding she would
encourage the toddler to throw kisses to
her neighbors.
Dela Rosa's daughter and granddaugh-
ter were frequently at the home, and the
group were often seen going on outings as
a family, as they did Monday.

Montana Tech coach explains UF's problems better than anyone


Ever since Florida's season
started falling apart in ear-
ly October, I've been wait-
ing for an old-fashioned press
conference blowup.
In a season like this - when
bad became depressing and de-
pressing became pathetic - you
can usually rely on an honest,
somewhat-embarrassing rally-
ing cry. But not at Florida. Urban
Meyer is too introverted, at least
publicly.
And his players have been
programmed to answer questions
with one of three responses: "We
just got to keep working hard,"
"We beat ourselves" or "You
should see how good we are on
film."
So here we are, watching a 7-5
team and hearing nothing about
practice habits (What are we
talking' about? Practice?) or let-
ting a game slip away (Les Miles
was who we thought he was!).
In a year like this, the art of the
impromptu rant could relieve the
sadness, if only briefly.


But if Urban won't do it, we
should at least applaud someone
who would. When Bob Green
retired two weeks ago after 24
seasons with the proud Montana
Tech Orediggers, the sporting
world lost the Vince Lombardi
of NAIA postgame press confer-
ences.
So, drawing from his most fa-
mous speeches, here is how we
can imagine Green would have
reacted to Florida's downfall this
season.
"Those are gone. I got a short
memory. Just like when I was in the
third grade - two of the best years
of my life."
After Florida dropped games
to Alabama and LSU, the Gators
needed to move on. There were
still six games left in the regular
season, and they could still win
the SEC East.
"We're kind of like a woodpecker
in a petrified forest. Just keep busy
and look for opportunities."
There is no more damning way
to describe the futility of Florin-


da's offense
this season.
Florida kept
looking for
solutions.
Tyler Jett First it
was the
The Jett Stream "dive play,
tjett@alligator org
Twitter @iam_tyler all day" of-
fense. Then
it was a
two-quarterback system. Then it
was a three-quarterback system.
And, finally, it was a no-huddle
attack like Orgeon.
But no matter what Florida
ran, nothing worked. Among
SEC teams, the Gators rank 10th
in total offense.
"We're kind of like (79-year-old
country singer) George Jones going
to a hip-hop concert. Not much har-
mony there."
At least part of Florida's of-
fensive problems can be blamed
on its line.
The Gators have allowed 23
sacks this season, good for just
seventh-best in the conference.


Florida's front five was billed
as one of the best in the nation
entering this season, but the unit
has underwhelmed. The Gators'
formerly explosive offense is av-
eraging just 4.3 yards per rush,
and John Brantley was never able
to get in a rhythm.
"When I was your age, I studied
far into the night by the light of a
single candle. I sat right in the front
row, walked both ways uphill five
miles to school, raised my hand all
the time, studied and one day Ifinal-
ly got an 'A.'And my grandma beat
the heck out of me for cheating."
Florida's offense seemed to
finally click after losing to Mis-
sissippi State. Steve Addazio said
he was happy to see his group's
hard work finally pay off with
wins against Georgia and Van-
derbilt.
But those wins held little val-
ue. They were nothing more than
smoke and mirrors against bad
competition. And when Florida
played South Carolina at home
for the SEC East championship,


the Gators looked ugly once
again.
"That's a double-edged sword.
It's kind of like watching your moth-
er-in-law go off a. -ih in a Cadillac.
You've got mixed feelings."
You won't ever be happy los-
ing to Florida State. The Semi-
noles were your little stepbrother
- useful only because they made
you look better.
But Saturday's loss, a 31-7
thrashing, finally put this dread-
ful regular season to an end.
Also, losing so poorly to a
rival will be motivating. And
pretty much any premier recruit
could start immediately next sea-
son, if that sort of thing appeals
to them.
And at least there's still a bowl
game. The Gators, who have split
their last two games, can end the
year on a positive note.
"It's kind of a math thing, you
know. If we lost our last one, we'd
lost two out of three. But if we WON
our last one, we'd won our last two
out of three."


Rodriguez's status still unknown despite rumors


* MICHIGAN IS 7-5 THIS SEASON.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michigan ath-
letic director Dave Brandon refuses to let
speculation about Rich Rodriguez's future
change his timetable to evaluate the foot-
ball coach.
"Everyone needs to take a deep breath,"
Brandon said Monday morning.
The first-year AD reiterated that he
won't do performance reviews of any of
his coaches until their seasons - not just
the regular season - are over.
That might make for another uncom-
fortable month for Rodriguez.
He helped the Wolverines qualify for a
bowl - possibly the Insight Bowl on Dec.
28 - for the first time in his three seasons
in charge of college - I ...l ,l1 s winningest
program.
The situation swirling around Rodrin-
guez's status had a chance to turn into a
circus at the team's banquet Thursday
night because Stanford coach Jim Har-
baugh planned to be there to be honored
along with his 1985 teammates. Harbaugh
said Saturday night there's a "75-percent
chance" he will be at the event, adding he
needed to rearrange some recruiting trips.
Two days later, Michigan ...rl:.: II Bust
ticket chairman Jeffrey Holzhausen wrote
in an e-mail that the University of Michigan
club of greater Detroit officials received a
call indicating Harbaugh wouldn't be able
to make it.
Many of those who want Rodriguez to
be fired want Harbaugh hired.
Michigan's regular season ended Satur-
day with a 37-7 loss at Ohio State, losing its
seventh straight to the rival and dropping
Rodriguez's record at Michigan to 1-10
against ranked teams.
"I'll be mad for a while," Rodriguez
said after the game. "This will sting."
Rodriguez was asked at the postgame
news conference whether he knew he
would be back, or hoped he would be back,


and he acknowledged being worried about
his future every day.
"But nothing is going to change how we
work," he said. "I took this job to make it
the best program in America."
He's got a long way to go.
Rodriguez lost a school-record nine
games in his debut with the Wolverines
two years ago, was 5-7 after starting 4-0
last season and turned a 5-0 start into a 7-5
finish this fall.
He has three years remaining on his six-
year contract that pays him about $2.5 mil-
lion per season.
Brandon said earlier this month that the
NCAA violations committed under Rodrin-
guez didn't give him cause to terminate his
contract.
If Brandon and school officials decide to
fire Rodriguez without cause before 2011,
it would cost $4 million. On Jan. 1, the buy-
out drops to $2.5 million.
ESPN analyst and former UM star Des-
mond Howard has confidence Brandon
will make the right decision.
"I don't think you use recruiting as an
excuse or reason to act sooner than you're
ready because this is bigger than one re-
cruiting class," Howard said. "Dave his
has finger on the pulse of this situation
and he's very calculating. It gives me some
comfort and confidence that he'll make
the decision that is in the best interest for
Michigan."
Brandon understands and appreciates
the passion so many people have for Mich-
igan -...rl: ,II, but wishes the coaches and
players didn't have to deal with constant
scrutiny about Rodriguez's status.
"Rich has an opportunity to go through
15 practices to prepare for a bowl that his
team has earned a right to play in," Bran-
don said. "My approach is to give him the
opportunity to do his job without doing a
performance review at this time. It would
be great if everyone let Rich do his job and
let me do mine because the timetable for
reviews is not going to change for any of
our sports."


1 "1--
Rich Rodriguez is at the center of numerous coaching rumors. He holds a record of 15-21
in three seasons as Michigan's coach.

McCarney served as Iowa

season, as he leads the team in blocks with seven and
ranks third with 11 offensive rebounds despite playing a
little more than 15 minutes per game.
Those numbers are a startling increase from the 2009-10
season, when he blocked just eight shots the entire year
and often faced questions about his toughness.
"My understanding of where to be, being in the right
position and what we're trying to do on defense got a lot
better," Murphy said.
While Murphy's improvements under the basket have
been noticeable, his contributions from behind the arc
have been limited to this point.
The sophomore has attempted just four long-range
shots this year, but he has managed to convert on a pair of
them, including a momentum-stealer at the end of the first
half against Florida State that stretched UF's lead to nine.
Although the quantity hasn't been there, the purity of
his stroke has shown opponents that they need to guard
him out to 21 feet, even if he isn't likely to turn into a vol-
ume shooter any time soon.

"I think [Erik Murphy] took advantage of his
time here this summer to improve, and he's

"I'm happy with those; they're open looks for me,"
Murphy said. "I'm not going to try to force anything, but
if they're open I'll take it."
Murphy's ability to stretch the defense may play a ma-
jor role in his strength crashing the offensive glass and
scoring in the paint, where he has 3.3 points per game this
season.
Overall, Murphy's points per game have increased from
3.5 as a freshman to 8.2 as a sophomore.
Murphy attributes that improvement not just to this
last offseason of work but also to years and years of work-
ing on the fundamentals with his dad, Jay, a former NBA
player.
Today, Jay does everything he can to catch his son's
games and make sure Erik is doing things the right way.
"He doesn't watch just to watch, he watches and he gets
on me a little bit," Erik said. "He says, 'Just keep working,
keep playing hard and trying to do all the right things, and
keep focused.'"

Bartley wills UF to comeback win


Gators used late 13-4 run


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

Coach Amanda Butler, above
all else, demands toughness from
her players.
The young Gators team epito-
mized Butler's desired attribute
to the fullest Tuesday, overcom-
ing a slow start to defeat a veteran
Old Dominion squad 63-55 in the
O'Connell Center.
"I saw a lot of toughness, a
heck of a lot of toughness," But-
ler said of her team following a
couple of disappointing days of
practice. "We've struggled a little
bit and for us to come out of those
two days feeling like we can-
not only play with a great team
like this but also beat them is all
toughness."
No Gator exhibited that more
than junior guard Lanita Bartley.
After a slow first half, Bartley
said her coach inspired her to be
more aggressive.
With the Gators (6-1) trailing
51-50 late in the second, Bart-
ley drove to the basket on three
consecutive possessions, making
tough shots in a forest of post
players en route to a 13-4 Florida
run that secured the victory.
"Coach just told me to forget
about the first half and said if I'm
going to take it to the hole then go
hard and finish," Bartley said. "If
you aren't going to go hard and
finish, don't go in there at all."
The junior guard scored all 10
of her points in the second half
and also racked up four steals,
two rebounds and an assist. But
Butler said her value to the team
cannot be measured on the stat
sheet.
"Lanita just took over the
game," Butler said. "She just
wasn't going to accept anything
but us winning."
Old Dominion (3-2) has made
a habit out of jumping ahead of
opponents early in games this
season, and Tuesday wasn't any
different. Aided by two Florida
turnovers, the Monarchs rushed
out 7-0 to start the game and held
that lead for all but a few seconds
in the first half.


The Gators' shooting woes
continued early as they opened 2
of 9 from the field and were shoot-
ing just 31 percent at the break.
Florida rallied in the second half,
shooting 47.8 percent to bring the
game average to 38.2.But it was
still a cold night for UF.
Florida, averaging just un-
der six 3-pointers per game this
season, missed all nine of its at-
tempts from beyond the arc in
the first half and finished without
a 3-pointer (0 of 11) for the first
time since 2007.
"That's kind of a positive,"
Butler said. "I think it's a big deal


for us not to shoot the ball well
from the 3-point line and still be
able beat a really, really good
team."
The guards for Florida strug-
gled early, shooting just 2 for 12
in the first half. But with the game
on the line, the backcourt made
the difference.
Freshman guard Kayla Lewis
scored a team-high and career-
high 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting
and also added four rebounds.
Jaterra Bonds also got into
double figures, recording 10
points off a stellar 6-for-6 show-
ing at the free throw line, includ-
ing five pivotal makes with less
than a minute to go.

* UF WILL PLAY UCF TONIGHT AT 7.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@allgator org

Given the hype surrounding the five returning starters
and the excitement that comes with a top-notch recruiting
class, it's easy to see how last year's eighth man could get
lost in the shuffle.
But on Sunday night, sophomore Erik Murphy stood
out in a big way.
With Florida leading by two and the Seminoles surg-
ing, Murphy sealed a victory with a critical left-handed
reverse layup in the paramount moment
of what has been an impressive start to
his sophomore season.
Murphy will have a chance to con-
MVenl'S tinue his early success tonight at 7 when
Basketball No. 18 Florida (5-1) takes on UCF (5-0) in
Basketball Orlando.
Part of Murphy's increased produc-
tion has been precipitated by a position switch, as the
sophomore returned to power forward thanks to the ar-
rival of freshman center Patric Young.
Last season, Murphy had to play most of his minutes at
the five to fill in for an injured Kenny Kadji.
"I feel more comfortable on the perimeter playing this
position," Murphy said. "This is more natural for me."

Thomas Drummond of Jackson told a court that he had been driving home after a night out with friends last February when his vehicle veered off the slick highway and into a culvert. Drummond says he was not intoxicated while driving, but that he was by the time emergency workers arrived more than two hours later.

In recognition of World AIDS Day, GatorWell will provide free HIV testing at the Florida Gymnasium from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The event, sponsored by the College of Health and Human Perfor mance and Eta Sigma Kappa, provides students with an opportunity to become aware of their HIV status and learn prevention techniques to keep themselves safe. “You can’t tell if a person is HIV positive by looking at them,” said Samantha Evans, Sexual Health Educator for GatorWell. “The only true way to know is to get an HIV test.” World AIDS Day, observed Dec. 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness worldwide about HIV/ AIDS and the importance of knowing one’s status. According to statistics released by GatorWell, only 31 percent of UF students know their HIV status. ‘Check up before you hook up,’” Evans said. “It’s better to be safe than sorry.” About 1,000 AIDS cases and 645 HIV cases were reported to the Alachua County Health Department as of September 2010. As of 2008, 117,612 diagnosed AIDS cases in Florida were reported to the Centers for Disease Control, making the state the third highest reported rate of HIV/AIDS in the country behind New York and California. The testing will be by appointment only. Students can make an appointment by calling GatorWell at 352-273-4450. GatorWell also offers additional free HIV testing by appointment Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings at the GatorWell main seling and Wellness Center on Radio Road.Charles touts SG accomplishmentsFree AIDS tests todayBy ALYSSA VILLARREAL Alligator Contributing Writer Southbound lanes on Interstate 75 were closed Tuesday morning for more than two hours after a fatal car crash shut down the highway just north of Newberry Road.

By MAX REED Alligator Contributing Writer Can you imagine watching your land, your house and your child’s playground being bulldozed and demolished? “It’s emotionally exhausting,” said Gal Maugah Lugassi. “I’d rather get shot with a rubber bullet than have to go through that.” Lugassi, an Israeli activist and representative for Anarchists Against the Wall spoke during a guided discussion Tuesday about her experiences, the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and the isolation of Palestinians from the rest of the world. About 35 people attended the open forum, Stand Up Against The Wall: Liberate Palestine, hosted by Students for Justice in Palestine at the Reitz Union in Room 282. According to Vice President Mohammad Tina, the group spent $500 on the event. Lugassi spoke of riot-control methods such as skunk water, teargas and rubber bullets, which are everyday occurrences for Palestinians within Bil’in and Nebi Salah. The persistent peoples within these Palestine cities have rioted every Friday for the past six and four years respectively. “There will be justice when the occupation is removed,” Tina said, “when the Apartheid Wall is removed and when Palestinians are given full human rights.” The Wall, which began construction in 2002, will run over 400 miles and zigzag through 10 out of 11 West Bank districts. During the open forum, a video clip was shown, illustrating life within Palestine. Members of the Israeli Defense Force were shown destroying olive trees and guarding checkpoints. Lugassi said that taking away olive trees is like taking away a basic human right of Palestinians— the right to provide for themselves with dignity. Israelis have privileges that people who live a few miles away don’t have, she said. “I’m forced to call them privileges because the people I meet every week don’t have them.” Lugassi said the AATW is here to raise awareness about the struggle and raise money for legal costs. Lugassi said she has been arrested at least seven times at demonstrations. Tina made sure to clarify that Palestinians are against Zionists and the occupation, and not Judaism. “Have an open mind and don’t be spoon fed things,” Tina said. “It’s a cold world out there, and we have to be aware.” 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010Max Reed / Alligator StaffGal Maugah Lugassi, an activist for Anarchists Against the Wall, spoke to a group of students about her experiences as an activist and of the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza on Tuesday night at the Reitz Union Room 282. ‘Anarchists’ speak out against wall through West BankBy NADINE KORIOTHAlligator Contributing Writer JoAnn Demarc’s 7-year-old JanSport is barely blue anymore.

In the Doyle Conner Building on 34th street, about 90 people gathered, leaving standing room only. They listened to David Jowers, park manager and biologists, present the Florida Park Service’s draft plan to remove the majority of the park’s bison and horses, including all of the males. Park staff answered questions that many in the came to light in September. “Are you going to literally kill these creatures?” activist Lisa Grossman asked. “No, we don’t plan to kill anything,” said Dan Pearson, environmental specialist for the Florida Park Service. “Would you purposely sell them to people you think are going to slaughter them?” she asked. “I hope not,” he answered.

Hart read part of the resolution, which stated the Senate “implores the Florida Park Service to He received a round of applause.

Monday’s question: Should hats 69 TOTAL VOTES28% YES 72% NOThere are a lot of important things going on in the world right now. WikiLeaks reared its ugly head back into the national spotlight with the release of diplomatic cables and a lot of juicy gossip. North Korea is putting on the political and military equivalent of a toddler’s temper tantrum, the Senate just passed food safety regulations, the Pentagon’s review of “don’t ask, don’t tell” was released Tuesday and there’s a climate summit going on in Cancn. prices are slowly rising, CBS’ “The Early Show” is being restructured and a weekend of NFL and college football to talk about is all in the air as we embrace the beginning of December. But there’s one piece of news that hit me straight in the chest when I heard it this week, one piece that affected me more than all the other stories pulsing the newswire. Leslie Nielsen had died in his sleep of complications from pneumonia Sunday. For some, this might have been just a bummer. For others, it was just another nameless celebrity they never knew. For me, one of my comedic heroes had moved out of town — for good. Movie 3” and “Scary Movie 4” in addition to “Spy Hard,” “Mr. Magoo” and “Superhero Movie.” If one wasn’t to know Nielsen, he/she would sound like a ter rible judge of movie merit. Nielsen was so much more than that. “Airplane!”which I watch regularly and plan to watch memorial to Leslie’s life. Nielsen played Dr. Rumack, who had a knack for witty puns based on the paranoia of interim pilot Ted Striker. “Airplane!” was the movie school special. It was the thing I’d come home to watch and something that always guar 11th or 12th time I’ve watched it. My parents didn’t care there’s a brief scene of nudity because they knew how much the movie meant to me. I’d try to convert my friends too, so someone would get my references when I walked around school screaming Dr. Rumack’s lines. “I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley!” I don’t know what it was about “Airplane!” or what it was about Leslie Nielsen that drew me to this comedy over the Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler movies at the time, but I felt it was a bit more intellectual than the fart jokes in the modern comedies at the time. Leslie started out as a serious actor, but that role in “Airplane!” changed him. He was featured in the TV series “Police Squad,” and then moved on to the Police team as “Airplane!” took an absurd twist on detective movies and enhanced Nielsen’s stock even further. and he’s one star Hollywood will truly miss. Asked, toldPentagon study was unnecessaryL Saying Sunday that the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy prohibiting openly gay members to serve wouldn’t be “going anywhere,” the Republican senator from South Carolina is sure to be just smitten with the Pentagon’s report released Tuesday. The Pentagon’s 10-month study on the effects of a repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” found enormously positive results, including 70 percent of those surveyed admitting the over turn of the military’s legal discriminatory policy would have of the study was simply that most members of the military Based on the responses of 115,000 troops and 44,200 troop spouses, the study will hopefully end debate on a ban that has already been ruled unconstitutional. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” has already been overturned in the House of Representatives but was blocked in the Senate by every Republican and Arkansas Democrats. Sen. John McCain, the leading force behind the Senate’s refusal to overturn the policy, said the military is at its highest point in professionalism and capability, “so to somehow allege that this policy has been damaging the military is simply false.” We’re dismayed at McCain’s inability to see the inherent harm in forcing members of our military to remain silent, and we’re dismayed at his encouragement for the continuity of But most importantly, we’re dismayed our government had to conduct a 10-month study to conclude what many of us have never doubted. and to conclude anything else is to endorse bigotry. While we understand the Senate Republicans cite the lack of permitted debate on other unrelated provisions in the defense bill in which the overturn of “don’t ask don’t tell” was attached, what we don’t understand is their problematic and subversive attempts to scapegoat the “lack of debate” as the reason they killed the defense bill and with it a repeal of ”don’t ask, don’t tell,” and coincidentally, in one giant motion, the DREAM Act. While we lend enormous support for continued debate on most issues, especially on bills with such a high price tag as to debate condemning discrimination. To request debate on the issue of overturning “don’t ask, don’t tell” is to claim the other side, the ugly side of discrimination, has a valid viewpoint and should be heard. We should all be as abhorred with senators requesting debate on ending “don’t ask, don’t tell” as we would be with debate on civil rights issues with blacks, women, religious minorities and any other group who is discriminated against. And those who counter that this issue is different because it involves the military currently engaged in two wars, and now possibly three with North Korea rearing its weaponry, Tuesday. We’re glad a large majority of military members support what a majority of Americans have long known and never needed a despicable study to deduce: Bigotry has no place in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorWikiLeaks a detriment to diplomacyI have accepted I will disagree with the editorial staff of the Alligator on almost any given political issue, but Monday’s offensive editorial needs to be addressed. The editorial in question, which had the temerity to endorse the odious WikiLeaks release of thousands of diplomatic communiques, cannot in good conscience be equated with Woodward and Bernstein’s reporting on the Watergate scandal, and the damage to diplomacy worldwide is incalculable. Of course, the Alligator brings up the non-surprises that the Saudis support ter rorism and the Karzai government is cor rupt. I am a bit surprised the Editorial Board mentioned Obama’s prisoners-for-access blackmail on Slovenia, but it didn’t mention the administration responsible for that reprehensible exchange. The real casualty is a frank discussion of issues because every country that has diplomatic relations with us is less likely to share its real views with us if those views are likely to end up in the public sphere. Additionally, some of the information divulged by WikiLeaks was gathered by real people, sometimes at considerable risk to themselves. But hey, it’s no skin off the editors of the Alligator if those people are endangered; the editors are safely enThat’s the only thing that matters to our teenage arbiters of the truth. Ron Binns UF student Kyoto not about climate changeWhile the Kyoto Protocol has been world power, the exceptions being the United States and Australia, the international policy itself offers no real solutions to climate change. It has done nothing to curtail the polluting policies of the world’s now No. 1 producer of greenhouse gases and has served as little more than a multinational taxation system from developed countries to undeveloped. The most disturbing portion of the to pollute and exploit developing nations, but that the policy does not deal with the most important element of our climate — forestry conversion and urban sprawl. Nations like Brazil and Indonesia are depleting forest at record rates to produce hydroelectric power, sugarcane for ethanol and palm or soybean oil plantations for biodiesel. Many of these dams release more car bon dioxide into the air through forest their lifetime equivalent power supply were produced from burning coal. Sugarcane production pushes monoculture farming deeper into the most valuable, biodiverse environments on the planet. Palm oil production dries swamps and converts entire ecosystems in a fuel production regimen which will take centuries in cultivation to become carbon-competitive with fossil fuels’ output even without considerations for the destruction of the rain forest itself. All of these dangerous practices are encouraged by Kyoto. The protocol has created a system wherein energy either comes from renewable resources at the expense of old growth forest, or is produced from fossil fuels in poorer countries for the benRegardless of motivation, I believe the United States’ decision to abstain from Kyoto has removed the most prosperous economy in the world from supporting this short-sighted wholesale destruction of precious natural resources. Kyoto cannot be supported by climate science when it has proven to encourage practices more harmful than the ones it discourages. Ian Mitchell UF student “Don’t ask, don’t tell” unconstitutionalThe idea of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy is ridiculous. First, the point of the rule is to “allow” the soldiers to serve. We shouldn’t be “allowing” them to serve, we should be encouraging their dedication to this country even with all the hatred and discrimination they face here. Second, many proponents of the rule say it keeps the heterosexual soldiers safer. If that were true it would mean homosexual soldiers are dangerous, and that the rule actually does something to stop them from being dangerous. Also, the law only hides the fact they are different and doesn’t stop anything from happening. The main reason homophobia truly exists in this country is all thanks to Christianity and other religions. Although this might be just one thing to keep in mind when someone tells you “it’s in the Bible,” remember the things the Church have historically been wrong about: heliocentricMany people need to recall the First Amendment rights that guarantees a freedom of religion. This amendment was made to create a country not built based on a religion, but rather a community of people with differ ing ideas and freedoms to believe whatever you want to believe. Chris Moody UF student Reader thanks writer for column Editor’s note: This letter, sent to staff writer Jon Silman, is being printed with the permission of its author.I think alcoholism is a subject that gets joked about far too often in college. I’m hoping that some people will have read your column and taken a step back to evaluate themselves. My mom was a drug addict and alcoholic for most of my childhood. While I have never had to struggle with it myself, I have had to live with it second hand for most of my life. I’ve been to several AA and NA meetings and the stories I have heard there always surprise me. Addiction is something that can strike at any point in one’s life and can happen to anyone. I sometimes see warning signs among my friends and I often hear them joke “I’m not an alcoholic until I graduate.” I think some people assume that because they’re in college, they’re going places, that they can’t fuck up, that they don’t have a problem. I’m glad you told your story, and I hope it opens some people’s eyes. It must have taken a lot of cour age to write. My mom, by the way, has been sober for over two years now, and this time I really hope it sticks. I also hope for your sake that you are able to stay sober. I know it’s a struggle, but you should never have to feel that worthless again. I also hope for the sake of any family you might raise someday that they don’t have to go through what I did growing up. Don’t give up, and always think about your future! Jason UF studentWhile setting up for a party a few weeks ago, I noticed one of my female friends trying to hoist a large oak table and carry it into the next room. Appropriately enough, I asked if she needed my help. After all, the table was heavy and she was just one person. I never thought that such an innocent offer would war rant the kind of whoopass that my friend was about to deliver. Among other things, she exclaimed, “My biggest pet peeve is when people ask if I need help with something. I’ve done more labor-intensive work than anyone here, but people insist that I need help just because I have boobs!” Needless to say, I haven’t offered her help with manual labor since then. Let us ignore science for a moment. You know: the empirically proven fact that males, on average, are physically stronger than females. Let’s examine this from a simple human-interaction point of view. One individual tries to do something, another offers help, and the pair usually manages the work way Neolithic human society has always worked. And although gender roles have traditionally shaped this distribution of labor, they have absolutely no bearing on the communal instinct to help one’s fellow human. I would have made the same offer to a male friend. There seem to be two major camps of feminists. The members of one group believe in equality and focus on very real modern issues such as disparity in wages between men and women. They serve an essential role in modern society, in which feminism has come under attack because of the irrational and circular arguments made by members of the second group. These individuals, who represent a highly vocal minority of the feminist movement, have learned to extrapolate feminism to every domain of daily life. They are hypersensitive to criticism, actively look for As one who cares deeply about equality issues, it pains me to see legitimate issues hijacked by those who use the movement as a method of personal vindication, like when my friend felt slighted that I offered her help moving fur niture. She is one of those “feminists” that bandy about the term without demonstrating a true understanding of what paranoia, feminists as a whole have come to be perceived as extremists that eschew showering and relish their armpit hair. Along with giving real feminists a bad name, the pseudo-feminists alienate men as well. Hypersensitized by the narrative that they have imagined, they are quick to accuse a man of implicitly belittling a woman when he offers to help and ignoring her plight when he refuses. The innocuous act of kindness, generosity or even apathy is interpreted as an intentional and malicious attack on the sovereignty of women everywhere. I’m not saying that a man’s actions are always absent of ulterior motives; I am saying that as adults we should be able to tell the differ ence. The irony is that not enough individuals at Princeton are willing to publicly proclaim their feminism, as Caroline Kitchener pointed out in her column “Where have all the feminists gone?,” and I think it’s at least in part because of this vocal minority. The stigma caused by this minority is a real one, as evidenced by many of the comments on past ‘Prince’ articles related to feminism. While varying in content, the general tone of these comments is, “Enough already. There this way, a very vocal minority of extremists have effectively pushed the issue beyond the sphere of reasonable discourse. In complaining about unimportant issues, they are reducing the urgency of the real ones. No one wants to hear any more about feminism once they’ve learned to associate feminism with complaining. Once this association is made, all bets are off; real feminism has no chance. Feminism is not a selling point, nor is it a label that automatically legitimizes what you are saying. Feminism is a school of thought and philosophy that must not be used as a street-corner soap box, lest everything it stands for be cheapened or destroyed. It is easy to make a point by shouting the loudest or by inundating your opponent with a mass of statistics that he race and gender equality is not one that is won by attrition, by wearing your enemies down until they no longer It’s a hearts-and-minds campaign in which you aim to turn those who once stood in your way. I understand where they’re coming from. But gender extremists cannot their battles.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMcLEAN, Va. — A Virginia toddler was walking out of a shopping mall with relatives when her grandmother suddenly a fatal plunge to the pavement several stories below, police said Tuesday. Carmela Dela Rosa, 50, of Fairfax was arrested and charged with murder, said prosecutor Ian Rodway. Authorities said interviews with witnesses and Dela Rosa led them to the conclusion that the girl’s fall Monday night was no accident, but they couldn’t yet explain why the grandmother threw her. The 2-year-old child, Angelyn Ogdoc, died in a hospital several hours later. She fell from a walkway linking the mall’s third Tysons Corner Center in Fairfax, just south of Washington, D.C. Fairfax County police spokeswoman Tawny Wright said Dela Rosa was leaving the mall with the toddler and two other adult relatives when she abruptly picked the girl up and threw her over the railing. Dela Rosa was being held without bond, and a preliminary hearing in the case was set for Jan. 4, Rodway said. Deputy Public Defender Dawn Butorac, who is representing Dela Rosa, declined to comment on the case. No one answered at Dela Rosa’s home in Fairfax on Tuesday morning, but neighbor Russell Jackson, 51, described them as “a happy family” and said Dela Rosa lived with her husband and a son and often cared for her granddaughter. “She was a sweet, happy baby,” said Jackson, who lives in the rowhouse next door. Dela Rosa would sometimes leave the blinds in the front window open when she was caring for the girl during the day. “You could see them in the window waving at you,” he said, adding she would encourage the toddler to throw kisses to her neighbors. Dela Rosa’s daughter and granddaughter were frequently at the home, and the group were often seen going on outings as a family, as they did Monday.

MICHIGAN IS 7-5 THIS SEASON.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon refuses to let speculation about Rich Rodriguez’s future change his timetable to evaluate the football coach. “Everyone needs to take a deep breath,” Brandon said Monday morning. won’t do performance reviews of any of his coaches until their seasons — not just the regular season — are over. That might make for another uncomfortable month for Rodriguez. He helped the Wolverines qualify for a bowl — possibly the Insight Bowl on Dec. in charge of college football’s winningest program. The situation swirling around Rodriguez’s status had a chance to turn into a circus at the team’s banquet Thursday night because Stanford coach Jim Har baugh planned to be there to be honored along with his 1985 teammates. Harbaugh said Saturday night there’s a -percent chance” he will be at the event, adding he needed to rearrange some recruiting trips. Two days later, Michigan Football Bust ticket chairman Jeffrey Holzhausen wrote in an e-mail that the University of Michigan call indicating Harbaugh wouldn’t be able to make it. Many of those who want Rodriguez to Michigan’s regular season ended Satur day with a 37-7 loss at Ohio State, losing its seventh straight to the rival and dropping Rodriguez’s record at Michigan to 1-10 against ranked teams. “I’ll be mad for a while,” Rodriguez said after the game. “This will sting.” Rodriguez was asked at the postgame news conference whether he knew he would be back, or hoped he would be back, and he acknowledged being worried about his future every day. “But nothing is going to change how we work,” he said. “I took this job to make it the best program in America.” He’s got a long way to go. Rodriguez lost a school-record nine games in his debut with the Wolverines two years ago, was 5-7 after starting 4-0 last season and turned a 5-0 start into a 7-5 He has three years remaining on his sixyear contract that pays him about $2.5 million per season. Brandon said earlier this month that the NCAA violations committed under Rodriguez didn’t give him cause to terminate his contract. it would cost $4 million. On Jan. 1, the buyout drops to $2.5 million. ESPN analyst and former UM star Deswill make the right decision. “I don’t think you use recruiting as an excuse or reason to act sooner than you’re ready because this is bigger than one recruiting class,” Howard said. “Dave his and he’s very calculating. It gives me some the decision that is in the best interest for Michigan.” Brandon understands and appreciates the passion so many people have for Michigan football, but wishes the coaches and players didn’t have to deal with constant scrutiny about Rodriguez’s status. “Rich has an opportunity to go through 15 practices to prepare for a bowl that his team has earned a right to play in,” Brandon said. “My approach is to give him the opportunity to do his job without doing a performance review at this time. It would be great if everyone let Rich do his job and let me do mine because the timetable for reviews is not going to change for any of our sports.” 14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010AP PhotoRich Rodriguez is at the center of numerous coaching rumors. He holds a record of 15-21 in three seasons as Michigan’s coach. Rodriguez’s status still unknown despite rumorsEver since Florida’s season started falling apart in ear ly October, I’ve been waiting for an old-fashioned press conference blowup. In a season like this — when bad became depressing and depressing became pathetic — you can usually rely on an honest, somewhat-embarrassing rallying cry. But not at Florida. Urban Meyer is too introverted, at least publicly. And his players have been programmed to answer questions with one of three responses: “We just got to keep working hard,” “We beat ourselves” or “You should see how good we are on So here we are, watching a 7-5 team and hearing nothing about practice habits (What are we talkin’ about? Practice?) or letting a game slip away (Les Miles was who we thought he was!). In a year like this, the art of the impromptu rant could relieve the But if Urban won’t do it, we should at least applaud someone who would. When Bob Green retired two weeks ago after 24 seasons with the proud Montana Tech Orediggers, the sporting world lost the Vince Lombardi of NAIA postgame press confer ences. So, drawing from his most famous speeches, here is how we can imagine Green would have reacted to Florida’s downfall this season. “Those are gone. I got a short memory. Just like when I was in the third grade — two of the best years of my life.” After Florida dropped games to Alabama and LSU, the Gators needed to move on. There were still six games left in the regular season, and they could still win the SEC East. “We’re kind of like a woodpecker and look for opportunities.” There is no more damning way to describe the futility of Florida’s offense this season. Florida kept looking for solutions. First it was the “dive play, all day” offense. Then it was a two-quarterback system. Then it was a three-quarterback system. attack like Orgeon. But no matter what Florida ran, nothing worked. Among SEC teams, the Gators rank 10th in total offense. “We’re kind of like (79-year-old country singer) George Jones going to a hip-hop concert. Not much harmony there.” At least part of Florida’s offensive problems can be blamed on its line. The Gators have allowed 23 sacks this season, good for just seventh-best in the conference. as one of the best in the nation entering this season, but the unit has underwhelmed. The Gators’ formerly explosive offense is averaging just 4.3 yards per rush, and John Brantley was never able to get in a rhythm. “When I was your age, I studied far into the night by the light of a single candle. I sat right in the front miles to school, raised my hand all ly got an ‘A.’ And my grandma beat the heck out of me for cheating.” Florida’s offense seemed to sissippi State. Steve Addazio said he was happy to see his group’s wins against Georgia and Vanderbilt. But those wins held little value. They were nothing more than smoke and mirrors against bad competition. And when Florida played South Carolina at home for the SEC East championship, the Gators looked ugly once again. “That’s a double-edged sword. It’s kind of like watching your mother-in-law go off a cliff in a Cadillac. You won’t ever be happy losing to Florida State. The Seminoles were your little stepbrother — useful only because they made you look better. But Saturday’s loss, a 31-7 ful regular season to an end. Also, losing so poorly to a rival will be motivating. And pretty much any premier recruit could start immediately next season, if that sort of thing appeals to them. And at least there’s still a bowl game. The Gators, who have split their last two games, can end the year on a positive note. “It’s kind of a math thing, you know. If we lost our last one, we’d lost two out of three.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15Harrison Diamond / AlligatorFormer UF defensive line coach Dan McCarney helped lure in a 2010 recruiting class that included Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley. McCarney eighth Meyer assistant to become head coachto bed each night proud to be a member of the Mean Green family.” McCarney served as Iowa State’s head coach from 19952006, and he’s the eighth assistant to leave Urban Meyer’s side to become a head coach. “I’m happy for coach McCarney and his family,” Meyer said. “He has a proven track record as a head coach, and we were fortunate to have him on our staff for the last three years. He did a great job with our defensive line, and I fully expect him to be successful at North Texas.” While McCarney tries to rebuild at North Texas, his successor at UF will face a similar challenge. The Gators will lose starting defensive ends Justin Trattou and Duke Lemmens to graduation, and defensive tackles Lawrence Marsh, Terron Sanders and Brandon Antwine are also headed out the door after the bowl game. Omar Hunter and Jaye Howard are expected to return at tackle, but their backups and the ends will be lacking in experience. McCarney helped bring in a 2010 defensive line recruiting class that was hyped as one of the best ever, including Rivals. com’s top-rated defensive end (Ronald Powell) and top two defensive tackles (Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley). Powell and Floyd, who have combined for 45 tackles this year, were the only ones to earn regular playing time this season, and they’ll have to make a leap to reliable starters next year without McCarney. And his departure has already started to have an effect on this year’s recruiting class, as Asheville (N.C.) High defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan — rated a four-star prospect by Rivals. com — rescinded his oral commitment to Florida and cited McCarney leaving as a reason why. G A TORS, from page 16 Fo otball Murphy spent offseason in Gainesville to improve body, athleticism, 3-point strokeAnother factor contributing to his improvement is a full offseason to work on both his game and his physique. Murphy opted to stay in Gainesville this past summer to become stronger, enhance his athleticism and rediscover the 3-point touch he displayed in high school. “I think he took advantage of his time here this summer to improve, and he’s made some good strides,” coach Billy Donovan said. Murphy’s increased bulk has been evident so far this season, as he leads the team in blocks with seven and ranks third with 11 offensive rebounds despite playing a little more than 15 minutes per game. Those numbers are a startling increase from the 2009-10 season, when he blocked just eight shots the entire year and often faced questions about his toughness. “My understanding of where to be, being in the right position and what we’re trying to do on defense got a lot better,” Murphy said. While Murphy’s improvements under the basket have been noticeable, his contributions from behind the arc have been limited to this point. The sophomore has attempted just four long-range shots this year, but he has managed to convert on a pair of half against Florida State that stretched UF’s lead to nine. Although the quantity hasn’t been there, the purity of his stroke has shown opponents that they need to guard him out to 21 feet, even if he isn’t likely to turn into a volume shooter any time soon. “I’m happy with those; they’re open looks for me,” Murphy said. “I’m not going to try to force anything, but if they’re open I’ll take it.” Murphy’s ability to stretch the defense may play a major role in his strength crashing the offensive glass and scoring in the paint, where he has 3.3 points per game this season. Overall, Murphy’s points per game have increased from 3.5 as a freshman to 8.2 as a sophomore. Murphy attributes that improvement not just to this last offseason of work but also to years and years of working on the fundamentals with his dad, Jay, a former NBA player. Today, Jay does everything he can to catch his son’s games and make sure Erik is doing things the right way. “He doesn’t watch just to watch, he watches and he gets on me a little bit,” Erik said. “He says, ‘Just keep working, keep playing hard and trying to do all the right things, and keep focused.’” HOOPS, from page 16Matt T ripp / Alligator S taffUF forward Erik Murphy leads the team with seven blocks and is third with 11 offensive rebounds this season.

Sports WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org By MATT WATTSAlligator Writer Coach Amanda Butler, above all else, demands toughness from her players. The young Gators team epitomized Butler’s desired attribute to the fullest Tuesday, overcoming a slow start to defeat a veteran Old Dominion squad 63-55 in the O’Connell Center. “I saw a lot of toughness, a heck of a lot of toughness,” Butler said of her team following a couple of disappointing days of practice. “We’ve struggled a little bit and for us to come out of those two days feeling like we cannot only play with a great team like this but also beat them is all toughness.” No Gator exhibited that more than junior guard Lanita Bartley. said her coach inspired her to be more aggressive. With the Gators (6-1) trailing 51-50 late in the second, Bartley drove to the basket on three consecutive possessions, making tough shots in a forest of post players en route to a 13-4 Florida run that secured the victory. “Coach just told me to forget going to take it to the hole then go you aren’t going to go hard and The junior guard scored all 10 of her points in the second half and also racked up four steals, two rebounds and an assist. But Butler said her value to the team cannot be measured on the stat sheet. “Lanita just took over the game,” Butler said. “She just wasn’t going to accept anything but us winning.” Old Dominion (3-2) has made a habit out of jumping ahead of opponents early in games this season, and Tuesday wasn’t any different. Aided by two Florida turnovers, the Monarchs rushed out 7-0 to start the game and held that lead for all but a few seconds The Gators’ shooting woes continued early as they opened 2 ing just 31 percent at the break. Florida rallied in the second half, shooting 47.8 percent to bring the game average to 38.2.But it was still a cold night for UF. Florida, averaging just under six 3-pointers per game this season, missed all nine of its attempts from beyond the arc in time since 2007. “That’s kind of a positive,” Butler said. “I think it’s a big deal for us not to shoot the ball well from the 3-point line and still be able beat a really, really good team.” The guards for Florida struggled early, shooting just 2 for 12 on the line, the backcourt made the difference. Freshman guard Kayla Lewis scored a team-high and careerhigh 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting and also added four rebounds. Jaterra Bonds also got into points off a stellar 6-for-6 showing at the free throw line, includthan a minute to go. RUMOR CONTROL SCOREBOARD RANKINGS AP NCAA Men’s Basketball Poll 16. Georgetown 17.

Residents discuss park plan STAFF ANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLANNED WILDLIFE REMOVAL. By MERDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer Local residents herded into a small auditorium Tuesday night to speak up for the bison and horses in Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. In the Doyle Conner Building on 34th street, about 90 people gathered, leaving standing room only. They listened to David Jowers, park manager and biologists, present the Florida Park Service's draft plan to remove the majority of the park's bison and horses, including all of the males. Park staff answered questions that many in the audience had been wondering since the plan first came to light in September. "Are you going to literally kill these creatures?" activist Lisa Grossman asked. "No, we don't plan to kill anything," said Dan Pearson, environmental specialist for the Florida Park Service. "Would you purposely sell them to people you think are going to slaughter them?" she asked. "I hope not," he answered. UF student Sen.

He received a round of applause. Jim Weimer, a park biologist, said one of the reasons the bison and horse herds are being culled is because they are not vital to the ecosystem. "There's a big difference between natural resources and cultural resources," he said. "The livestock have no ecological role in these resources." JanSport founder hosts film fest Three films were shown By NADINE KORIOTH Alligator Contributing Writer JoAnn Demarc's 7-year-old JanSport is barely blue anymore. But Demarc, 51, who uses her backpack to carry items like her diabetes test kit and coffee cup, said its still as sturdy as ever. She attended the JanSport. Telluride Film Festival on Tuesday night in hopes of winning a new backpack and learning more about the company she is so fond of. The event, hosted by Reitz Union Board Entertainment, featured three documentaries and giveaways such as water bottles, backpacks and T-shirts. According to Abby Swartz, co-director of the RUB Entertainment film committee, about 100 people attended. Two of the films shown, "Bag It" and "Man Alone on the Wall," were part of the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado this year. The third was a biography on Jansport co-founder Skip Yowell, who was at the event. JanSport is a sponsor of the festival, which offers grants to environmental filmmakers to produce documentaries they otherwise could not afford to do, Yowell said in an interview. Yowell started the company in 1967 with his cousin when they graduated from college. "The idea of starting a business that incorporated our passionate outdoors lifestyle was very appealing at the time when we didn't want to get a real job," he said. the West Bank and Gaza and the isolation of Palestinians from the rest of the world. About 35 people attended the open forum, Stand Up Against The Wall: Liberate Palestine, hosted by Students for Justice in Palestine at the Reitz Union in Room 282. According to Vice President Mohammad Tina, the group spent $500 on the event. Lugassi spoke of riot-control methods such as skunk water, teargas and rubber bullets, which are everyday occurrences for Palestinians within Bil'in and Nebi Salah. The persistent peoples within these Palestine cities have rioted every Friday for the past six and four years respectively. "There will be justice when the occupation is removed," Tina said, "when the Apartheid Wall is removed and when Palestinians are given full human rights." The Wall, which began construction in 2002, will run over 400 miles and zigzag through 10 out of 11 West Bank districts. During the open forum, a video clip was shown, illustrating life within Palestine. Members of the Israeli Defense Force were shown destroying olive trees and guarding checkpoints. Lugassi said that taking away olive trees is like taking away a basic human right of Palestiniansthe right to provide for themselves with dignity. Israelis have privileges that people who live a few miles away don't have, she said. "I'm forced to call them privileges because the people I meet every week don't have them." Lugassi said the AATW is here to raise awareness about the struggle and raise money for legal costs. Lugassi said she has been arrested at least seven times at demonstrations. Tina made sure to clarify that Palestinians are against Zionists and the occupation, and not Judaism. "Have an open mind and don't be spoon fed things," Tina said. "It's a cold world out there, and we have to be aware. Off Campus Life office offers stress solutions By ANNIE BOGGS Alligator Contributing Writer UF's Office of Off Campus Life is encouraging students to take advantage of free massages, yoga and board games to take their minds off looming exams. This week and next, the office is promoting stress management during the nerve-wracking time before exams with 50-minute "stress breaks." Although final exams don't start until Dec. 11, the stress breaks will start Wednesday and continue Thursday and Monday at 11:45 a.m. "We wanted to do something that was pertinent to student life this semester," said Leah Villanueva, the graduate assistant for Off Campus Life. The breaks combine stressmanagement information with free snacks and activities. They will be located at Peabody Hall room 411, according to Off Campus Life Director Nora Kilroy. "If's a high-stress time of year for most students," Kilroy said. "It's something new we tried this year." On Wednesday, a yoga instructor from Gainesville Health and Fitness Center will put on a demonstration for students. On Thursday, there will be five-minute massages by a therapist from the Southwest Recreation Center. On the last day of the stress breaks, there will be board games and other activities for stressed out students to play. Jenga, Candyland, Apples to Apples and Taboo are among the games that will be available. "I definitely think they're going to be successful," Villanueva said. "They're activities to get students' minds off the constant stress of school." The activities promote learning about stress management in a practical way with a lecture-styled format, Villanueva said. On "Not only does it p feel good, but a massage is actually good for you," said Villanueva, who cited muscle tension relief and circulation as the health benefits. In addition to the stress breaks, other facilities at UF will be offering special programs during exam week. The Student Recreation & Fitness Center will be offering eight hours of non-stop yoga Dec. 14. For those hitting the books, Library West and Marston Science Library will have extended hours before and during exams, remaining open until 4 a.m.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Peace Ribbon honoring fallen soldiers comes to UF UF senior Shannon Parrish lays out letters on her Peace Ribbon for Staff Sgt. John Reiners on Tuesday night in the Reitz Union Basement. THE PEACE RIBBON PROJECT BEGAN IN 2005. By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Contributing Writer Staff Sgt. John Reiners was a Florida Gators fan. If you wanted to find him, you would just have to look for his blue Gators baseball cap. Reiners was killed Feb. 13 when a roadside bomb was detonated in Afghanistan. So when Jacque Betz got a call from Reiners' mother to make a memorial panel for him, she knew it had to be Gators-themed. Reiners' panel is one of a few new additions to the 400-plus collection that makes up the Peace Ribbon Project started by Betz. The Peace Ribbon Project made its first appearance at UF on the Plaza of the Americas on Tuesday with 25 panels, including two for soldiers from Gainesville who died in war. Each piece of 2-feet-by-3-feet cloth in the ribbon represents soldiers and civilians who have been killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. "Our goal is to keep making panels until all the troops are brought home and the wars are over," Betz said. The project is part of CodePink: Women for Peace and has traveled across the United States since it began with 25 pieces in 2005. Michelle Harris, president and founder of the Campus CodePink for Peace chapter at UF, said she was happy about the interest in the project as students passed by the tent. A workshop was held in the basement of the Reitz Union, where a panel was made for Reiners in orange and blue fabric with a mini Gators jersey. Harris said she got involved with CodePink, a women's antiwar group with the goal of bnnging the troops home, because it is very womenand family-orientated. She said war is an issue that directly affects families. "I've always been interested in people's stories and showing injustices," Harris said. "I guess unjust wars fall under that, too." Betz said the ribbon and the panels serve as a reminder of what war does and who it kills. Senate Republicans' letter calls for blocking most bills It would halt Democratic legislation THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON -Senate Republicans intend to block action on virtually all Democratic-backed legislation unrelated to tax cuts and government spending in the current postelection session of Congress, officials said Tuesday, adding that the leadership has quietly collected signatures on a letter pledging to carry out the strategy. If carried out, it would doom Democraticbacked attempts to end the Pentagon's practice of discharging openly gay members of the military service and give legal status to young illegal immigrants who join the military or attend college. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has made both measures a priority as Democrats attempt to enact legislation long sought by groups that supported them in the recent midterm elections. A nuclear arms treaty with Russia that President Barack Obama wants ratified would not be affected, since any debate would take place under different rules than those that apply to legislation. Even so, its passage is not assured as Republicans are seeking concessions from the White House. News It was not known how many of the Senate's 42 Republicans had signed the draft letter, which the leadership intends to make public quickly. Senate Democrats need 60 votes to overcome any delaying tactics, meaning they could be thwarted if 41 Republicans join in the commitment. Democrats' chances of passing politically charged legislation will dim when the new Congress convenes in January, since Republicans will take control of the House and gain more Senate seats. The letter comes after comments by Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and others in his party that the voters made it clear in the elections they want lawmakers to focus on economic issues.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 Asked, told Pentagon study was unnecessary indsey Graham should probably quiet down now. Saying Sunday that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy prohibiting openly gay members to serve wouldn't be "going anywhere," the Republican senator from South Carolina is sure to be just smitten with the Pentagon's report released Tuesday. The Pentagon's 10-month study on the effects of a repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" found enormously positive results, including 70 percent of those surveyed admitting the overturn of the military's legal discriminatory policy would have either positive or no results. But perhaps the greatest finding of the study was simply that most members of the military just don't care who they fight alongside. Based on the responses of 115,000 troops and 44,200 troop spouses, the study will hopefully end debate on a ban that has already been ruled unconstitutional. "Don't ask, don't tell" has already been overturned in the House of Representatives but was blocked in the Senate by every Republican and Arkansas Democrats. Sen. John McCain, the leading force behind the Senate's refusal to overturn the policy, said the military is at its highest point in professionalism and capability, "so to somehow allege that this policy has been damaging the military is simply false." We're dismayed at McCain's inability to see the inherent harm in forcing members of our military to remain silent, and we're dismayed at his encouragement for the continuity of federally enforced homosexism. But most importantly, we're dismayed our government had to conduct a 10-month study to conclude what many of us have never doubted. A gay soldier's blood is just as worthy as a heterosexual's, and to conclude anything else is to endorse bigotry. While we understand the Senate Republicans cite the lack of permitted debate on other unrelated provisions in the defense bill in which the overturn of "don't ask don't tell" was attached, what we don't understand is their problematic and subversive attempts to scapegoat the "lack of debate" as the reason they killed the defense bill and with it a repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," and coincidentally, in one giant motion, the DREAM Act. While we lend enormous support for continued debate on most issues, especially on bills with such a high price tag as the defense bill, we realize there's simply no excuse or reason to debate condemning discrimination. To request debate on the issue of overturning "don't ask, don't tell" is to claim the other side, the ugly side of discnmination, has a valid viewpoint and should be heard. We should all be as abhorred with senators requesting debate on ending "don't ask, don't tell" as we would be with debate on civil rights issues with blacks, women, religious minorities and any other group who is discriminated against. And those who counter that this issue is different because it involves the military currently engaged in two wars, and now possibly three with North Korea rearing its weaponry, just lost their last excuse with the Pentagon's study released Tuesday. We're glad a large majority of military members support what a majority of Americans have long known and never needed a despicable study to deduce: Bigotry has no place in the land of the free and the home of the brave. all e independent ftorida Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

WikiLeaks reared its ugly head back into the national spotlight with the release of diplomatic cables and a lot of juicy gossip. North Korea is putting on the political and military equivalent of a toddler's temper tantrum, the Senate just passed food safety regulations, the Pentagon's review of "don't ask, don't tell" was released Tuesday and there's a climate summit going on in Cancin. There are nuclear talks with Iran, Comcast is fighting over Netflix usage, there's a problem with the Prius, home prices are slowly rising, CBS' "The Early Show" is being restructured and a weekend of NFL and college football to talk about is all in the air as we embrace the beginning of December. But there's one piece of news that hit me straight in the chest when I heard it this week, one piece that affected me more than all the other stories pulsing the newswire. Leslie Nielsen had died in his sleep of complications from pneumonia Sunday. For some, this might have been just a bummer. For others, it was just another nameless celebrity they never knew. For me, one of my comedic heroes had moved out of town -for good. Recently, Nielsen's been featured in films like "Scary Movie 3" and "Scary Movie 4" in addition to "Spy Hard," "Mr. Magoo" and "Superhero Movie." If one wasn't to know Nielsen, he/ she would sound like a terrible judge of movie merit. Nielsen was so much more than that. My first exposure to Nielsen was the 1980 film "Airplane!"which I watch regularly and plan to watch Sean Quinn letters@alligator. org again in the next few days as a memorial to Leslie's life. Nielsen played Dr. Rumack, who had a knack for witty puns based on the paranoia of interim pilot Ted Striker. "Airplane!" was the movie that defined my middle school film watching; it was my afterschool special. It was the thing I'd come home to watch and something that always guaranteed me to be on the floor laughing even if it was the 11th or 12th time I've watched it. My parents didn't care there's a brief scene of nudity because they knew how much the movie meant to me. I'd try to convert my friends too, so someone would get my references when I walked around school screaming Dr. Rumack's lines. "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley!" I don't know what it was about "Airplane!" or what it was about Leslie Nielsen that drew me to this comedy over the Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler movies at the time, but I felt it was a bit more intellectual than the fart jokes in the modern comedies at the time. Leslie started out as a serious actor, but that role in "Airplane!" changed him. He was featured in the TV series "Police Squad," and then moved on to the Police Squad films that were aptly titled "The Naked Gun." These films, the first two made by the same directorial team as "Airplane!" took an absurd twist on detective movies and enhanced Nielsen's stock even further. Nielsen's name is now synonymous with spoof films, and he's one star Hollywood will truly miss. Sean Quinn is afirst-year political science student. His column appears every Wednesday.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 7 WikiLeaks a detriment to diplomacy I have accepted I will disagree with the editorial staff of the Alligator on almost any given political issue, but Monday's offensive editorial needs to be addressed. The editorial in question, which had the temerity to endorse the odious WikiLeaks release of thousands of diplomatic communiques, cannot in good conscience be equated with Woodward and Bernstein's reporting on the Watergate scandal, and the damage to diplomacy worldwide is incalculable. Of course, the Alligator brings up the non-surprises that the Saudis support terrorism and the Karzai government is corrupt. I am a bit surprised the Editorial Board mentioned Obama's prisoners-for-access blackmail on Slovenia, but it didn't mention the administration responsible for that reprehensible exchange. The real casualty is a frank discussion of issues because every country that has diplomatic relations with us is less likely to share its real views with us if those views are likely to end up in the public sphere. Additionally, some of the information divulged by WikiLeaks was gathered by real people, sometimes at considerable risk to themselves. But hey, it's no skin off the editors of the Alligator if those people are endangered; the editors are safely ensconced in their office in Gainesville. That's the only thing that matters to our teenage arbiters of the truth. Ron Binns UF student Kyoto not about climate change While the Kyoto Protocol has been signed and ratified by virtually every world power, the exceptions being the United States and Australia, the international policy itself offers no real solutions to climate change. It has done nothing to curtail the polluting policies of the world's now No. 1 producer of greenhouse gases and has served as little more than a multinational taxation system from developed countries to undeveloped. The most disturbing portion of the Kyoto Protocol is not that it offers new financial incentives for multinational firms to pollute and exploit developing nations, but that the policy does not deal with the most important element of our climate forestry conversion and urban sprawl. Nations like Brazil and Indonesia are depleting forest at record rates to produce hydroelectric power, sugarcane for ethanol and palm or soybean oil plantations for biodiesel. Many of these dams release more carbon dioxide into the air through forest flooding or removal than they would if their lifetime equivalent power supply were produced from burning coal. Sugarcane production pushes monoculture farming deeper into the most valuable, biodiverse environments on the planet. Palm oil production dries swamps and converts entire ecosystems in a fuel production regimen which will take centuries in cultivation to become carbon-competitive with fossil fuels' output even without considerations for the destruction of the rain forest itself. All of these dangerous practices are encouraged by Kyoto. The protocol has created a system wherein energy either comes from renewable resources at the expense of old growth forest, or is produced from fossil fuels in poorer countries for the benefits of developed nations. Regardless of motivation, I believe the United States' decision to abstain from Kyoto has removed the most prosperous economy in the world from supporting this short-sighted wholesale destruction of precious natural resources. Kyoto cannot be supported by climate science when it has proven to encourage practices more harmful than the ones it discourages. Ian Mitchell UF student "Don't ask, don't tell" unconstitutional The idea of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is ridiculous. First, the point of the rule is to "allow" the soldiers to serve. We shouldn't be "allowing" them to serve, we should be encouraging their dedication to this country even with all the hatred and discrimination they face here. Second, many proponents of the rule say it keeps the heterosexual soldiers safer. If that were true it would mean homosexual soldiers are dangerous, and that the rule actually does something to stop them from being dangerous. Also, the law only hides the fact they are different and doesn't stop anything from happening. The main reason homophobia truly exists in this country is all thanks to Christianity and other religions. Although this might be just one thing to keep in mind when someone tells you "it's in the Bible," remember the things the Church have historically been wrong about: heliocentricity, slavery, a flat earth, etc. Many people need to recall the First Amendment rights that guarantees a freedom of religion. This amendment was made to create a country not built based on a religion, but rather a community of people with differing ideas and freedoms to believe whatever you want to believe. Chris Moody UFstudent Reader thanks writer for column Editor's note: This letter, sent to staff writer Jon Silman, is being printed with the permission of its author. I think alcoholism is a subject that gets joked about far too often in college. I'm hoping that some people will have read your column and taken a step back to evaluate themselves. My mom was a drug addict and alcoholic for most of my childhood. While I have never had to struggle with it myself, I have had to live with it second hand for most of my life. I've been to several AA and NA meetings and the stories I have heard there always surprise me. Addiction is something that can strike at any point in one's life and can happen to anyone. It is definitely a misunderstood subject. I sometimes see warning signs among my friends and I often hear them joke "I'm not an alcoholic until I graduate." I think some people assume that because they're in college, they're going places, that they can't fuck up, that they don't have a problem. I'm glad you told your story, and I hope it opens some people's eyes. It must have taken a lot of courage to write. My mom, by the way, has been sober for over two years now, and this time I really hope it sticks. I also hope for your sake that you are able to stay sober. I know it's a struggle, but you should never have to feel that worthless again. I also hope for the sake of any family you might raise someday that they don't have to go through what I did growing up. Don't give up, and always think about your future. Jason UF student Gender extremists hurt feminism, should choose battles While setting up for a party a few weeks ago, I noticed one of my female friends trying to hoist a large oak table and carry it into the next room. Appropriately enough, I asked if she needed my help. After all, the table was heavy and she was just one person. I never thought that such an innocent offer would warrant the kind of whoopass that my friend was about to deliver. Among other things, she exclaimed, "My biggest pet peeve is when people ask if I need help with something. I've done more labor-intensive work than anyone here, but people insist that I need help just because I have boobs!" Needless to say, I haven't offered her help with manual labor since then. Let us ignore science for a moment. You know: the empirically proven fact that males, on average, are physically stronger than females. Let's examine this from a simple human-interaction point of view. One individual tries to do something, another offers help, and the pair usually manages the work more efficiently and effectively as a result. This is the way Neolithic human society has always worked. And although gender roles have traditionally shaped this distribution of labor, they have absolutely no bearing on the communal instinct to help one's fellow human. I would have made the same offer to a male friend. There seem to be two major camps of feminists. The members of one group believe in equality and focus on very real modern issues such as disparity in wages between men and women. They serve an essential role in modern society, in which feminism has come under attack because of the irrational and circular arguments made by David members of the second group. These Mendelsohn individuals, who represent a highly UWire vocal minority of the feminist movement, have learned to extrapolate feminism to every domain of daily life. They are hypersensitive to criticism, actively look for evidence of sexism and find it everywhere. As one who cares deeply about equality issues, it pains me to see legitimate issues hijacked by those who use the movement as a method of personal vindication, like when my friend felt slighted that I offered her help moving furniture. She is one of those "feminists" that bandy about the term without demonstrating a true understanding of what it means. On account of their frenzied finger-pointing and paranoia, feminists as a whole have come to be perceived as extremists that eschew showering and relish their armpit hair. Along with giving real feminists a bad name, the pseudo-feminists alienate men as well. Hypersensitized by the narrative that they have imagined, they are quick to accuse a man of implicitly belittling a woman when he offers to help and ignoring her plight when he refuses. The innocuous act of kindness, generosity or even apathy is interpreted as an intentional and malicious attack on the sovereignty of women everywhere. I'm not saying that a man's actions are always absent of ulterior motives; I am saying that as adults we should be able to tell the difference. The irony is that not enough individuals at Princeton are willing to publicly proclaim their feminism, as Caroline Kitchener pointed out in her column "Where have all the feminists gone?," and I think it's at least in part because of this vocal minority. The stigma caused by this minority is a real one, as evidenced by many of the comments on past 'Prince' articles related to feminism. While varying in content, the general tone of these comments is, "Enough already. There is no conspiracy to put women down. Get over it." In this way, a very vocal minority of extremists have effectively pushed the issue beyond the sphere of reasonable discourse. In complaining about unimportant issues, they are reducing the urgency of the real ones. No one wants to hear any more about feminism once they've learned to associate feminism with complaining. Once this association is made, all bets are off; real feminism has no chance. Feminism is not a selling point, nor is it a label that automatically legitimizes what you are saying. Feminism is a school of thought and philosophy that must not be used as a street-corner soap box, lest everything it stands for be cheapened or destroyed. It is easy to make a point by shouting the loudest or by inundating your opponent with a mass of statistics that he or she cannot possibly begin to decode. But the fight for race and gender equality is not one that is won by attrition, by wearing your enemies down until they no longer have the energy to fight. It's a hearts-and-minds campaign in which you aim to turn those who once stood in your way. I understand where they're coming from. But gender extremists cannot hope to effect real change without first learning to pick their battles. David Mendelsohn is a student at Princeton University.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 Crew team to row on land to raise money for gear The row will take place on Turlington Plaza today, Thursday adedtogiveitashotw This year, Salazar will join his By ALI ROBERTSON Alligator Contributing Writer This week, members of the UF crew team will have the endurance, the equipment and the motivation to row the distance. They'll only be missing one thingwater. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today and Thursday, the team will suit up and head to Turlington Plaza to participate in Row Across Florida, Florida Crew's annual fundraiser. Using indoor rowing machines, known as ergometers, members will simulate the distance it would take to cross the state, said Will Maxwell, president of the team. Nearly 80 men and women of both the varsity and novice teams will each row a 10k to raise money for more practice and racing equipment. While last year's event raised about $8,000, the team increased that goal to $20,000 this year. Maxwell said as more Student novice rowers join Activism the team, there is a need for more equipment. Row Across Florida also serves a dual purpose as the team's main recruitment event. As last year's recruitment chair, Maxwell said about 40 to 50 students stopped by the table on Turlington Plaza during the event to find out how to get involved. When Alberto Salazar saw Row Across Florida on Turlington Plaza, he developed a sudden interest in the sport. His dad had told him rowing was a great workout, so he defellow varsity teammates on the ergometers as he experiences the event from the recruiting side. While he thinks students will enjoy watching the event, he said the real action happens out on the lake during races. "That's the best part," Salazar said. "You can see every stroke. You're pulling ahead, then they're pulling ahead. You get an adrenaline rush." Student juggling group brings circus to campus By CHELSEA HULL of those unsure bystanders less than tE Alligator Contributing Writer years ago. Despite a bit of stage fright, Ian Eisner, president of the UF juggling club, Objects in Motion, practices juggling on the Plaza of the Americas on Tuesday afternoon. Ian Elsner puts safety first: No fire indoors, and new members are not allowed to play with knives. Elsner is the president of Objects in Motion, the official UF juggling club. The club will hold its first solo performance, "Objects in Motion Live! and in 3D" Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. "As a club we've wanted to do a showcase for a long time," Elsner said. "Seniors will be able to do solos, and it will let new members get a taste of performance." Objects in Motion has more than 50 active members, with an average of 30 participants at each activity, he said. The club meets every Wednesday at 9 p.m. and represents all types of juggling. Contact jugglers balance an acrylic ball on their bodies and allow it to roll across their arms, shoulders and hands. Poi spinners twirl sticks with small weights tied to them with colorful string or ribbon. Jugglers toss clubs and balls alone or in groups. Outside of practice, members often get together to juggle on the Plaza of the Americas. The jugglers try to draw in bystanders with what they call "the free juggling lesson" -guaranteed success or your money back. Elsner said 90 percent of the people he approaches tell him that they have below average coordination, which, as a statistics major, he is quick to point out is a mathematic impossibility. "You're human, so you're actually pretty good at this intuitively," he said. "All we have to do is spend about half an hour with you to teach you the method." Andi Clinton, a biology junior, was one three she now performs regularly with Objects in Motion and can juggle, spin poi and ride a unicycle. "I think what is most important about our club is that it's really chill, and that anyone can do it," she said. "I ride a unicycle and I trip over my own feet sometimes." While juggling may not be as difficult as it seems, when it comes to juggling knives or fire, club members act with added precaution. "All we have to do is spend about half an hour with you to teach you the method." Ian Eisner President of Objects in Motion Fire juggling is never done on campus. Instead, the jugglers meet at a member's house, where the lawn and trees have been hosed down. Elsner is sure to keep emergency supplies of water and fire blankets, and the lighter fluid is stored away from the jugglers. Juggling knives are also weighted, and are designed to look real. They look and sound dangerous, but are otherwise harmless. Elsner is happy to say that, due to planning and attentiveness, no one has ever been injured during a meeting, practice or performance. Both Elsner and Clinton have made juggling a part of their lives and look forward to continue their passion after college. "Once it clicks, once you sort of get into the rhythm, it feels amazing," Elsner said. "It's not only one instance; it's a constant recalibration of your throws. You're sort of feeling the way that the balls are moving and it's an extension of something that goes on for a while, like a conversation." Senators supported canceling classes the day before Thanksgiving SPEECH, from page 1 During this term, SG partnered with the UF Bookstore to establish a textbook rental service and held a tax-free textbook day, which, according to Charles, saved students thousands of dollars. In the Student Senate meeting following the speech, Alexandra Moore, allocations chairwoman of the Unite Party, discussed future international relief trip hearings to decide how to allocate $20,000 for trip funding. "These trips are usually funded by the Health Outreach [Association], but that money goes to dental and medical students," said Sen. Severin Walstad, who represents the Unite Party. "Now the Allocations Committee can fund undergraduates in their efforts." The Senate unanimously passed resolutions concerning the bison removal from Paynes Prairie and the faculty senate proposal to cancel classes on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Sen. Andrew Hart, who represents the Student Alliance party, was one of the authors of the resolution condemning the bison removal. He said preserving the bison habitats is important. "It's something that is profound to the cultural heritage of the state of Flonda," said Hart. "As the fourth most populous state in the nation, we are quickly losing resources, so it's important to hold onto national treasures for current and future generations." For Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kleponis, the resolution supporting the cancellation of classes on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving was personal. A Miami native, he left at 5 a.m. on Thanksgiving to beat the traffic home on what he called the busiest traffic day of the year. "Giving students the extra day off really gives them a window so they can get home safely," he said.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Police: Grandma threw toddler off walkway THE ASSOCIATED PRESS McLEAN, Va. -A Virginia toddler was walking out of a shopping mall with relatives when her grandmother suddenly flung her over a railing, sending the girl on a fatal plunge to the pavement several stories below, police said Tuesday. Carmela Dela Rosa, 50, of Fairfax was arrested and charged with murder, said prosecutor Ian Rodway. Authorities said interviews with witnesses and Dela Rosa led them to the conclusion that the girl's fall Monday night was no accident, but they couldn't yet explain why the grandmother threw her. The 2i-year-old child, Angelyn Ogdoc, died in a hospital several hours later. She fell from a walkway linking the mall's third floor to the parking garage's sixth floor at Tysons Corner Center in Fairfax, just south of Washington, D.C. Fairfax County police spokeswoman Tawny Wright said Dela Rosa was leaving the mall with the toddler and two other adult relatives when she abruptly picked the girl up and threw her over the railing. Dela Rosa was being held without bond, and a preliminary hearing in the case was set for Jan. 4, Rodway said. Deputy Public Defender Dawn Butorac, who is representing Dela Rosa, declined to comment on the case. No one answered at Dela Rosa's home in Fairfax on Tuesday morning, but neighbor Russell Jackson, 51, described them as "a happy family" and said Dela Rosa lived with her husband and a son and often cared for her granddaughter. "She was a sweet, hapNational py baby," said Jackson, News who lives in the rowhouse next door. Dela Rosa would sometimes leave the blinds in the front window open when she was caring for the girl during the day. "You could see them in the window waving at you," he said, adding she would encourage the toddler to throw kisses to her neighbors. Dela Rosa's daughter and granddaughter were frequently at the home, and the group were often seen going on outings as a family, as they did Monday. 17 A walkway at the Tysons Corner Center shopping mall where a toddler fell to her death in McLean, Va. on Tuesday.

14, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 Montana Tech coach explains UFs problems better than anyone ver since Florida's season started falling apart in early October, I've been waiting for an old-fashioned press conference blowup. In a season like this -when bad became depressing and depressing became pathetic -you can usually rely on an honest, somewhat-embarrassing rallying cry. But not at Florida. Urban Meyer is too introverted, at least publicly. And his players have been programmed to answer questions with one of three responses: "We just got to keep working hard," "We beat ourselves" or "You should see how good we are on film." So here we are, watching a 7-5 team and hearing nothing about practice habits (What are we talkin' about? Practice?) or letting a game slip away (Les Miles was who we thought he was!). In a year like this, the art of the impromptu rant could relieve the sadness, if only briefly. But if Urban won't do it, we should at least applaud someone who would. When Bob Green retired two weeks ago after 24 seasons with the proud Montana Tech Orediggers, the sporting world lost the Vince Lombardi of NAIA postgame press conferences. So, drawing from his most famous speeches, here is how we can imagine Green would have reacted to Florida's downfall this season. "Those are gone. I got a short memory. Just like when I was in the third grade -two of the best years of my life." After Florida dropped games to Alabama and LSU, the Gators needed to move on. There were still six games left in the regular season, and they could still win the SEC East. "We're kind of like a woodpecker in a petrified forest. Just keep busy and lookfor opportunities." There is no more damning way to describe the futility of FloriTyler Jett The Jett Stream tjett@all Imigator org Twitter @iamtyler da's offense this season. Florida kept looking for solutions. First it was the "dive play, all day" offense. Then it was a two-quarterback system. Then it was a three-quarterback system. And, finally, it was a no-huddle attack like Orgeon. But no matter what Florida ran, nothing worked. Among SEC teams, the Gators rank 10th in total offense. "We're kind of like (79-year-old country singer) George Jones going to a hip-hop concert. Not much harmony there." At least part of Florida's offensive problems can be blamed on its line. The Gators have allowed 23 sacks this season, good for just seventh-best in the conference. Florida's front five was billed as one of the best in the nation entering this season, but the unit has underwhelmed. The Gators' formerly explosive offense is averaging just 4.3 yards per rush, and John Brantley was never able to get in a rhythm. "When I was your age, I studied far into the night by the light of a single candle. I sat right in thefront row, walked both ways uphill five miles to school, raised my hand all the time, studied and one day Ifinally got an 'A.'And my grandma beat the heck out of me for cheating." Florida's offense seemed to finally click after losing to Mississippi State. Steve Addazio said he was happy to see his group's hard work finally pay off with wins against Georgia and Vanderbilt. But those wins held little value. They were nothing more than smoke and mirrors against bad competition. And when Florida played South Carolina at home for the SEC East championship, the Gators looked ugly once again. "That's a double-edged sword. It's kind of like watching your mother-in-law go off a cliff in a Cadillac. You've got mixed feelings." You won't ever be happy losing to Florida State. The Seminoles were your little stepbrother -useful only because they made you look better. But Saturday's loss, a 31-7 thrashing, finally put this dreadful regular season to an end. Also, losing so poorly to a rival will be motivating. And pretty much any premier recruit could start immediately next season, if that sort of thing appeals to them. And at least there's still a bowl game. The Gators, who have split their last two games, can end the year on a positive note. "It's kind of a math thing, you know. If we lost our last one, we'd lost two out of three. But if we WON our last one, we'd won our last two out of three." Rodriguez's status still unknown despite rumors MICHIGAN IS 7-5 THIS SEASON. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ANN ARBOR, Mich. -Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon refuses to let speculation about Rich Rodriguez's future change his timetable to evaluate the football coach. "Everyone needs to take a deep breath," Brandon said Monday morning. The first-year AD reiterated that he won't do performance reviews of any of his coaches until their seasons -not just the regular season -are over. That might make for another uncomfortable month for Rodnguez. He helped the Wolverines qualify for a bowl -possibly the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28 -for the first time in his three seasons in charge of college football's winningest program. The situation swirling around Rodriguez's status had a chance to turn into a circus at the team's banquet Thursday night because Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh planned to be there to be honored along with his 1985 teammates. Harbaugh said Saturday night there's a "75-percent chance" he will be at the event, adding he needed to rearrange some recruiting trips. Two days later, Michigan Football Bust ticket chairman Jeffrey Holzhausen wrote in an e-mail that the University of Michigan club of greater Detroit officials received a call indicating Harbaugh wouldn't be able to make it. Many of those who want Rodriguez to be fired want Harbaugh hired. Michigan's regular season ended Saturday with a 37-7 loss at Ohio State, losing its seventh straight to the rival and dropping Rodriguez's record at Michigan to 1-10 against ranked teams. "I'll be mad for a while," Rodriguez said after the game. "This will sting." Rodriguez was asked at the postgame news conference whether he knew he would be back, or hoped he would be back, and he acknowledged being worried about his future every day. "But nothing is going to change how we work," he said. "I took this job to make it the best program in America." He's got a long way to go. Rodriguez lost a school-record nine games in his debut with the Wolverines two years ago, was 5-7 after starting 4-0 last season and turned a 5-0 start into a 7-5 finish this fall. He has three years remaining on his sixyear contract that pays him about $2.5 million per season. Brandon said earlier this month that the NCAA violations committed under Rodriguez didn't give him cause to terminate his contract. If Brandon and school officials decide to fire Rodriguez without cause before 2011, it would cost $4 million. On Jan. 1, the buyout drops to $2.5 million. ESPN analyst and former UM star Desmond Howard has confidence Brandon will make the nght decision. "I don't think you use recruiting as an excuse or reason to act sooner than you're ready because this is bigger than one recruiting class," Howard said. "Dave his has finger on the pulse of this situation and he's very calculating. It gives me some comfort and confidence that he'll make the decision that is in the best interest for Michigan." Brandon understands and appreciates the passion so many people have for Michigan football, but wishes the coaches and players didn't have to deal with constant scrutiny about Rodriguez's status. "Rich has an opportunity to go through 15 practices to prepare for a bowl that his team has earned a right to play in," Brandon said. "My approach is to give him the opportunity to do his job without doing a performance review at this time. It would be great if everyone let Rich do his job and let me do mine because the timetable for reviews is not going to change for any of our sports." r AP Photo Rich Rodriguez is at the center of numerous coaching rumors. He holds a record of 15-21 in three seasons as Michigan's coach.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 15 Murphy spent offseason in Gainesville to improve body, athleticism, 3-point stroke H uurP from page 16 to become stronger, enhance his athleticism and rediscover Another factor contributing to his improvement is a full offseason to work on both his game and his physique. Murphy opted to stay in Gainesville this past summer the 3-point touch he displayed in high school. "I think he took advantage of his time here this summer to improve, and he's made some good strides," coach Billy Donovan said. Murphy's increased bulk has been evident so far this Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff UF forward Erik Murphy leads the team with seven blocks and is third with 11 offensive rebounds this season. He has also made two 3-pointers through the Gators' first six games. season, as he leads the team in blocks with seven and ranks third with 11 offensive rebounds despite playing a little more than 15 minutes per game. Those numbers are a startling increase from the 2009-10 season, when he blocked just eight shots the entire year and often faced questions about his toughness. "My understanding of where to be, being in the right position and what we're trying to do on defense got a lot better," Murphy said. While Murphy's improvements under the basket have been noticeable, his contributions from behind the arc have been limited to this point. The sophomore has attempted just four long-range shots this year, but he has managed to convert on a pair of them, including a momentum-stealer at the end of the first half against Florida State that stretched UF's lead to nine. Although the quantity hasn't been there, the purity of his stroke has shown opponents that they need to guard him out to 21 feet, even if he isn't likely to turn into a volume shooter any time soon. "I think [Erik Murphy] took advantage of his time here this summer to improve, and he's made some good strides." Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach "I'm happy with those; they're open looks for me," Murphy said. "I'm not going to try to force anything, but if they're open I'll take it." Murphy's ability to stretch the defense may play a major role in his strength crashing the offensive glass and scoring in the paint, where he has 3.3 points per game this season. Overall, Murphy's points per game have increased from 3.5 as a freshman to 8.2 as a sophomore. Murphy attributes that improvement not just to this last offseason of work but also to years and years of working on the fundamentals with his dad, Jay, a former NBA player. Today, Jay does everything he can to catch his son's games and make sure Erik is doing things the right way. "He doesn't watch just to watch, he watches and he gets on me a little bit," Erik said. "He says, 'Just keep working, keep playing hard and trying to do all the right things, and keep focused."' McCamey eighth Meyer assistant to become head coach GATORS, from page 16_ to bed each night proud to be a member of the Mean Green family." McCarney served as Iowa State's head coach from 19952006, and he's the eighth assistant to leave Urban Meyer's side to become a head coach. "I'm happy for coach McCarney and his family," Meyer said. "He has a proven track record as a head coach, and we were fortunate to have him on our staff for the last three years. He did a great job with our defensive line, and I fully expect him to be successful at North Texas." While McCarney tries to rebuild at North Texas, his successor at UF will face a similar challenge. The Gators will lose starting defensive ends Justin Trattou and Duke Lemmens to graduation, and defensive tackles Lawrence Marsh, Terron Sanders and Brandon Antwine are also headed out the door after the bowl game. Omar Hunter and Jaye Howard are expected to return at tackle, but their backups and the ends will be lacking in experience. McCarney helped bring in a 2010 defensive line recruiting class that was hyped as one of the best ever, including Rivals. com's top-rated defensive end (Ronald Powell) and top two defensive tackles (Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley). Powell and Floyd, who have combined for 45 tackles this year, were the only ones to earn regular playing time this season, and they'll have to make a leap to Football reliable starters next year without McCarney.

Sports WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Bartley wills UF to comeback win Gators used late 13-4 run By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer Coach Amanda Butler, above all else, demands toughness from her players. The young Gators team epitomized Butler's desired attribute to the fullest Tuesday, overcoming a slow start to defeat a veteran Old Dominion squad 63-55 in the O'Connell Center. "I saw a lot of toughness, a heck of a lot of toughness," Butler said of her team following a couple of disappointing days of practice. "We've struggled a little bit and for us to come out of those two days feeling like we cannot only play with a great team like this but also beat them is all toughness." No Gator exhibited that more than junior guard Lanita Bartley. After a slow first half, Bartley said her coach inspired her to be more aggressive. With the Gators (6-1) trailing 51-50 late in the second, Bartley drove to the basket on three consecutive possessions, making tough shots in a forest of post players en route to a 13-4 Florida run that secured the victory. "Coach just told me to forget about the first half and said if I'm going to take it to the hole then go hard and finish," Bartley said. "If you aren't going to go hard and finish, don't go in there at all." The junior guard scored all 10 of her points in the second half and also racked up four steals, two rebounds and an assist. But Butler said her value to the team cannot be measured on the stat sheet. "Lanita just took over the game," Butler said. "She just wasn't going to accept anything but us winning." Old Dominion (3-2) has made a habit out of jumping ahead of opponents early in games this season, and Tuesday wasn't any different. Aided by two Florida turnovers, the Monarchs rushed out 7-0 to start the game and held that lead for all but a few seconds in the first half. The Gators' shooting woes continued early as they opened 2 of 9 from the field and were shooting just 31 percent at the break. Florida rallied in the second half, shooting 47.8 percent to bring the game average to 38.2.But it was still a cold night for UF Florida, averaging just under six 3-pointers per game this season, missed all nine of its attempts from beyond the arc in the first half and finished without a 3-pointer (0 of 11) for the first time since 2007. "That's kind of a positive," Butler said. "I think it's a big deal for us not to shoot the ball well from the 3-point line and still be able beat a really, really good team." The guards for Florida struggled early, shooting just 2 for 12 in the frst half. But with the game on the line, the backcourt made the difference. Freshman guard Kayla Lewis scored a team-high and careerhigh 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting and also added four rebounds. Taterra Bonds also got into double figures, recording 10 points off a stellar 6-for-6 showing at the free throw line, including five pivotal makes with less than a minute to go.

By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org Given the hype surrounding the five returning starters and the excitement that comes with a top-notch recruiting class, it's easy to see how last year's eighth man could get lost in the shuffle. But on Sunday night, sophomore Erik Murphy stood out in a big way. With Florida leading by two and the Seminoles surging, Murphy sealed a victory with a critical left-handed reverse layup in the paramount moment of what has been an impressive start to CT his sophomore season. Murphy will have a chance to conMen's tinue his early success tonight at 7 when Basketball a~No 18 Florida (5-1) takes on UCF (5-0) in BaskeballOrlando. Part of Murphy's increased production has been precipitated by a position switch, as the sophomore returned to power forward thanks to the arrival of freshman center Patric Young. Last season, Murphy had to play most of his minutes at the five to fill in for an injured Kenny Kadji. "I feel more comfortable on the perimeter playing this position," Murphy said. "This is more natural for me."
