Until 170,000 years ago, humans hung around Africa in
their birthday suits.
Then, they put on some clothes and got itchy.
David Reed, associate curator of mammals for the Flor-

ers have calculated when humans started wearing clothes
by studying the lice that lived on them.
The research, published in January's "Molecular Bi-

they split into two groups was the key to figuring out
when humans clothed themselves.
Instead of putting on clothing to keep warm, the re-

they were in sunny Africa. Reed said the clothing might
have been decorative, such as beaded belts.
When humans emigrated out of Africa and traveled to
other parts of the world, the lice went with them.
Reed said his next step is trying to trace the lice's trav-
els from Europe and Asia to the Americas to find out ex-
actly when humans came to the Americas.

Smoking elevator causes evacuation of Newell Hall


* NO ONE WAS IN THE ELEVATOR.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Staff Writer

Newell Hall was evacuated Monday af-
ter fire alarms were heard in the building.
A malfunctioning elevator motor in the build-


ing caused smoke, which set off fire alarms in
the building, according to Keith Saunders, a
spokesman for the Gainesville Fire Rescue.
University Police Department spokesman
Jeff Holcomb reported that the fire alarms
went off at 12:35 p.m.
Manmeet Waria, a Ph.D. candidate in soil
and water sciences, said fire trucks arrived at
the scene about 10 minutes after the alarms


went off.
The two fire trucks that arrived at the
scene parked at the Hub and evaluated the
situation before leaving around
On 1:05 p.m.
Campus There were no reports of the
elevator being stuck or anyone
trapped inside as the elevator malfunctioned,
Saunders said.


"We have seen that elevator break two or
three times before," Waria said. "So, my re-
action was that the elevator broke and there
was no real fire. But, you never know."
This isn't the first time the building has
been evacuated in the past two years. An
identical incident involving smoke created
by an elevator motor occurred at Newell Hall
on Sept. 1.


NATIONAL

Frenzy surrounds Arizona shooting suspect's hearing


ASSOCIATED PRESS
PHOENIX - Throngs of reporters waited hours Mon-
day to get their first look at the mysterious man accused
of a deadly shooting rampage that left Rep. C :.I: 11._-i. Gif-
fords critically wounded.
When the doors finally opened to U.S. Magistrate Law-
rence Anderson's chambers, there was a mad rush for the
wooden benches.
Reporters _II:..- .-. their way past courtroom artists
clutching their sketch pads, law clerks and more than a
dozen stern-looking U.S. marshals. One man was kicked
out after he touched an electronic device he was holding.
The room buzzed with whispered conversations.


Then Jared Loughner walked into the room. Every-
thing fell silent.
Wearing a tan prison uniform and handcuffs, the
22-year-old looked vacantly toward the
back of the packed courtroom; his deep-
set eyes seemed unfocused.
A pink gash stood out from the hair-
line of his shaved head.
He paused for a moment, then turned
and sat down next to his lawyer, Judy
Clarke, who whispered in his ear.
Lotughner Loughner stood up when the judge
entered the chambers. The suspect walked to the podium.
Anderson explained that Loughner could face life impris-


onment or the death penalty for the killings of a federal
judge and a Giffords staffer, and for the attempted assassi-
nation of Giffords, who was shot in the head. Four others
also died and more were wounded; Loughner will likely
be charged with those crimes in state courts.
The judge told Loughner his rights, including the right
to remain silent, and asked him if he understood.
Loughner - who has not been cooperating with inves-
tigators - leaned forward and said loudly: "Yes."
As Loughner left the podium, his lawyer placed her
hand on his back.
They walked toward the door, where a marshal
grabbed Loughner's right arm and marched him out of
the chambers.

Editorial

Sinking Ship

Immigration bill needs

a rewrite

jff might not even vote for it myself."
| Apparently, the captain's going down with the ship.
LAs one of the leading proponents of Florida's Arizona-
style immigration bill, state Sen. Mike Bennett admitted his
measure probably won't pass through the Florida Legislature
as it stands. Even he saw how the language borrowed from Ari-
zona's controversial law could cause problems.
Just what constitutes the "reasonable suspicion" a police of-
ficer would need to check someone's immigration status during
a routine traffic stop?
Gov. Rick Scott has denied any tie between the measure and
discrimination, but it may be an unspoken corollary to the cur-
rent bill. And while the bill's sitting pretty in the Florida House,
that's a risk the state Senate may be uii 11',,i, to take. We're
glad.
While we understand why voters like the idea of an immi-
gration bill, a mere antidiscrimination clause isn't going to stop
stereotypes from being a factor. Besides, the state does not yet
have an accurate way to quickly determine who's here legally.
Still, Sen. Bennett said the bill is not a complete waste be-
cause he's using it to open a discussion on the issue.
Here's our contribution to the conversation: When the state
has an accurate way to check everyone without a cop making a
call based on an accent or skin color, we'll give our blessing.

ther Brantley/ Reed/Burton/

The ball looks like it's about to

Wait a minute, what's this?
It's two Justice Department
officials dropped from F-16
jets, halting the game to de-
liver an executive order call-
ing for a congressional fact-
finding inquiry into whether
such a play is constitutional.
A Senate panel has published
a 1,000-page report that un-


covers whether there is any
indication the Founding Fa-
thers would have wanted a
stadium with a blue field.
Ridiculous? Perhaps a bit.
But so is our best and bright-
est in Washington trying
to get involved in the Bowl
Championship Series system.
In Washington state, a group
of attorneys have launched
a political action committee,
"Playoff PAC," with the goal
to kill the BCS machine. The
Senate felt it necessary to hold
hearings. Even our command-
er-in-chief vowed to "throw
his weight around a little bit"
on the issue. Really?
With a country currently
languishing under the weight
of two multi-billion-dollar
wars and an unforgiving
economy, we feel that try-
ing to salvage a college post-
season formula that is more
broken than a Larry King
marriage shouldn't be the top
priority. It's good for politi-
cians to show they care about
"re,'.,il n -i..1 ' topics, but let's
try to tackle some key issues
instead of righting the wrongs
of Utah and Boise State.
But Big East -. ..rl: :.II still
poses a threat to national mo-
rale.

Costly inauguration not unique to Scott
A lot of people have been slagging Gov. Rick Scott - make sure this shindig was s
for his extravagant inauguration festivities last clal.
Tuesday. This probably included b


They say he's out of touch with the sensibilities of
the average Florldian who is struggling in the lean tour-
ist economy we're now forced to survive in.
They say Rick Scott's "coronation" festivities were an
example of the kind of fiscal irresponsibility we can ex-
pect from the shiny-domed man who is now our state's
executive.
To all the people making these claims I say, "right
on."
I mean, who could not be cross with a man for spend-
ing $3 million on his own victory celebration?
The obvious question is: Why didn't he spend
more?
If Gov. Scott knew absolutely anything about the
needs and desires of the people, he would know opu-
lence is the way to the heart of the proletariat.
As any good community organizer knows, the only
way to win the respect of the people is to put on a show
big enough and flashy enough to dazzle the small minds
of the working class long enough for them to forget
we're in a depression.
Perhaps Gov. Scott should have taken notes from the
great unifier, our president, Barack Obama.
Dwarfing Scott's measly $3 million, Obama's inau-
guration cost a stately $170 million, according to ABC
News.
Now here's a guy who really knows how to throw
a party.
Not only did Obama use private funds for this little
soiree, he used about $120 million of federal funds to

the diamond-studded crown he
specifically required after claim-
ing that he was "king of America,"
and the fact that he made sure that
the party was planned by Corey
Worthington.


It's really not even that much money when you take
out all of the necessary costs.
Consider, for instance, the matching leather jackets
he ordered for all the czars.
Then there's the bark collar he got for Hillary Clin-
ton.
Some things you simply can't do without.
Considering President Obama ran on a ticket of con-
nection with the common man and concern for the fi-
nancial situation of the country when he took office, I
can only assume this is how you communicate that you
know what you're doing and have the best interests of
the people in mind.
With that noted, I hope Rick Scott has the time to
really reconsider his whole direction in his upcoming
governorship.
He needs to shape up and realize that this opulence
and luxury correspond to responsibility and sensitivity.
If not, he's in for a rough term.
He didn't even use any state money for his party.
That's bad form.
If we can't expect our elites to spend our money un-
wisely, who can we trust?

Rep. Giffords' shooting brings out our worst


Letters to the Editor
Alligator should have offered coverage
of Arizona shooting
The Alligator seems to have
lost its way as a news source.
Monday's edition devoted the entire edi-
tonal column to criticizing the media re-
sponse to the tragic shooting of Rep. Ga-
brielle Giffords, but not a single column
inch to covering the shooting itself.
Not once did the paper name the
shooter, allegedly Jared Lee Loughner,
or the six people killed, including federal
judge John Roll and 9-year-old Christina
Green, or the 13 others wounded.
While editorial commentary is a core
media function, simply reporting the
news is absolutely essential.
The Alligator is a key news source for
many students, and this failure to report
the news is a betrayal of readers' trust.

Reader's proposal for forced abortions
not so modest
While Chad Kimes' vision for a brave
new world certainly is breathtaking, his
call for "forced abortions" is not a modest
proposal.
Instead of proposing, "Who should not
have children?" (China's policy last time
I checked), he proposes, "Whose children
should we kill?"
The first "targets" are "obviously those
who oppose the ]:..1,.: " Kimes writes.
What do the supporters get?
A complimentary vasectomy?
I would rather listen to the same silly
arguments until I die before coming to
that.

When President Ronald Reagan was shot in March
of 1981 he told his surgeon, Dr. Joseph Giordano, a
Democrat, "Please tell me you're all Republicans,"
and he responded, "Today, Mr. President, we're all Repub-
licans."
I first heard about the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords
through Facebook. At the time there were very few hard
facts. Most of the early reports said that she was killed and
about 13 others were wounded.
The facts were: Rep. Giffords was shot, along with sev-
eral other people; it was at an event she hosted regularly
called "Congress on Your Corner" where she would meet
with constituents on an individual basis; and Giffords is a
Democrat.
In our instantly-updated, mobile, multitasking, we're-
all-experts-on-everything world, that last fact meant only
one thing on Twitter: the shooter must be a right-wing, tea
party extremist. This conclusion was reached very quickly,
without any evidence, without even knowing the shooter's
name. Even as every political figure from every part of the
spectrum made their support and prayers for her recovery
known, the unempirical, two-fact based hypothesis on the
politics and personality of the shooter became a "fact" of its
own on social networks.
Remember, the shooter didn't even have a name at this
point.
Eventually the Associated Press found it out: Jared
Loughner, or, in keeping with the determination that assas-
sins must have three names: Jared Lee Loughner.
The YouTube channel that may belong to him is odd, to
say the least. In his videos he talks about the importance
of grammar and literacy - in borderline-incoherent run-on
sentences; he wants to run a business around "conscience
dreaming"; and he wants to start a new system of currency.
His list of favorite books included Orwell's "1984," Huxley's
"Brave New World," , i:.jl:,., /'s "Farenheit 451," "Mein
Kampf" and "The Communist Manifesto."
Not only does this list show him as more complex than a
political slogan, but it begs the question of how Twitter users
in say, Tennessee or Illinois can draw conclusions based on
only a few facts. There really isn't an easy way to say this,
except to say it: we are all suffering from a delusion where
we make all the facts we learn try to fit in to our conception
of how the world works.
No one wants people to be shot at, but if people are shot
and killed, on some level we want the shooter to be some-
thing Other. So Jane Fonda blames Glenn Beck, Sarah Pa-

Matthew M. Robare lin and Michele Bachmann for
UWire Loughner's actions; conserva-
tives say he's insane, or retweet
the remarks of Caitie Parker,
who knew him in 2007: "As I knew him he was left wing,
quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy."
I'm not immune to it, either: I worry about Loughner's
apparent support for the gold standard - something heav-
ily associated with my brand of libertarian politics and so I
take issue with what I hope was a facetious tweet by blogger
Matt Yglesias: "Loughner YouTube indicates the thin line
between utter insanity and gold standard advocates."
So I say thank God for Rachel Maddow, who tweeted
"There is nothing to be gained from speculating on the mo-
tives and affiliations of AZ shooter w/o facts."
As I write this at 7:40 p.m. on the day of the shooting, there
still aren't many more facts than there were right afterward.
We know here in Amherst that Loughner is in custody; that
Giffords' office was vandalized last year; that federal Judge
John Roll, who was also killed, received death threats in the
past; and counting Roll, six people were murdered.
The flow of rumor has yet to be staunched. In addition
to the "Loughner is a Tea Partier" "hypothesis," a number
of people on Twitter were saying that if he was a Muslim
he would be called a terrorist, but since he's white he's "in-
sane." Some people are calling Loughner a terrorist: Tea Par-
ty Nation founder Judson Phillips said in an e-mail posted
on The New York Times' "The Caucus" blog, "The shooter
has been taken into custody and let's hope he gets the death
penalty he so richly deserves . . . No one should be a victim
of violence because of their political beliefs . . . we can all be
happy that the Congresswoman survived this terrorist at-
tack."
In a time of extreme uncertainty like this it is important
not to latch on to unfounded rumors coming out of Twitter
or Facebook, but to remember our reason and concentrate on
the facts. Let the unknowns be unknown instead of pretend-
ing to know. As a journalist I'm acutely aware that things
can be misreported or misunderstood, but that doesn't mean
we should make things up wholesale, either.
The day of the shooting we all should have been Demo-
crats, but the way we've been trying to pass off Loughner as
coming from the opposite side of the political spectrum as
our own says more disturbing things about us than any of
his YouTube videos say about him.

Florida sued for failing to adjust


minimum wage after inflation


* THE LAWSUIT CLAIMS THE
MINIMUM WAGE SHOULD RISE
TO $7.31 AN HOUR.

ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE - Two legal
groups sued Florida's labor agency
Monday, claiming the state failed to
raise the state's minimum wage by
six cents per hour this year to keep
up with inflation.
The lawsuit claimed the Agency
for Workforce Innovation violated
the Florida Constitution by keeping
it at the $7.25 federal rate, where it
was last year, instead of raising it to
$7.31 on Jan. 1.
About 188,000 minimum wage
workers could be effected. At stake
is up to $128 this year for a full-time
employee working a 40-hour week.
If all those the minimum-wage em-
ployees worked 40-hour weeks the
extra six cents would add up to $15
million.
"Unlike higher wage-earners,
those at the lowest end of the scale
tend to spend rather than put away
additional earnings, meaning that
any added income goes directly


into Florida's ,-.:.. ..i., " Jose Javier
Rodriguez of Florida Legal Services
said in a statement. "This is not a
partisan or political issue. When it
comes to our prosperity, it's a 'no-
brainer.'"
His organization and the Na-
tional Employment Law Project
filed the lawsuit on behalf of four
individual workers and three orga-
nizations that represent low-wage
employees: the Restaurant Oppor-
tunities Center of Miami, WeCount!
in Homestead and the Farmworker
Association of Florida in Apopka.
Agency spokesman Robby Cun-
ningham said in a
State statement that the
News complaint had been
received and was be-
ing reviewed.
The suit noted seven other states
with similar laws increased their
minimum wages on New Year's
Day. They are Arizona, Colorado,
Ohio, Montana, Oregon, Vermont
and Washington.
The state Supreme Court said in
an advisory opinion that Florida's
constitutional amendment, which
passed in 2004, does not provide


for decreases in minimum wage be-
cause of deflation.
Yet, the suit alleges, the agency
cut the minimum wage in 2010 to
$7.06 an hour from the previous
year's $7.21 and failed to publicly
announce its calculations as re-
quired by law.
Florida workers avoided the re-
duction because Congress passed a
minimum wage law requiring $7.25
per hour.
The suit alleges the agency mis-
calculated the rate this year as $7.16
per hour, still below the federal
minimum, based on its erroneous
$7.06 rate last year. The plaintiffs
contend the agency instead should
have calculated this year's state
minimum wage off the 2009 state
rate.
They said the agency's internal
memos acknowledged the Supreme
Court's ruling and expressed wor-
ries that a decrease would be ille-
gal.
Florida's rates are based on an-
nual changes in the non-seasonally
adjusted Consumer Price Index for
Urban Wage Earners and Clerical
Workers in the southern region.

Jenkins officially returning to Florida for senior season

* THE CORNERBACK FIRST POSTED
HIS DECISION ON TWITTER.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligator org

Will Muschamp has made some big moves
in his short time as Florida's coach, but Mon-
day may have been his best day yet.
Cornerback Janons Jenkins decided to
return for his senior season, UF announced
Monday morning, despite being projected as a
first-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by most
analysts.
"After careful consideration, I've made
a decision to return to school for my senior
year," Jenkins said in a statement.
"I spent some time with my family and
coach (Will) Muschamp and came to the con-
clusion it was in my best interest to return to
school. Coach Muschamp was very support-
ive throughout the whole process, regardless ., .' . ..... . .

Young finding his way


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org

Somewhere between a relaxing Christ-
mas break and a personal meeting with
his coaches, something clicked for Patric
Young.
The freshman center, who has under-
performed based on his lofty preseason
expectations, returned to Gainesville
with a renewed focus and commitment,
and the results have been noteworthy.
With nagging injuries threatening to
limit Vernon Macklin's minutes, the de-
velopment of Young could be crucial as
Florida (12-3, 1-0 Southeastern Confer-
ence) traverses the grind of SEC play,
which continues tonight at 9 in Knoxville
against Tennessee (10-5, 0-1 SEC).
"I feel like I'm learning a lot," Young
said. "I'm trusting the coaches a lot more
and buying into what they've been tell-
ing me, and it's been showing the last few


games."
In UF's three games since the holiday
break, Young has averaged 4.3 points and
4.7 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.
While those numbers appear mod-
est, they are nearly two points and two
rebounds per game higher than what
Young averaged in the
team's first 12 games,
when he played 14.3
minutes per contest.
Basketball "I think he came
back and realized this
is going to be a process
for him," coach Billy Donovan said last
week. "He's really tried to focus on doing
the things that he knows he can do."
When Young arrived on campus,
many assumed the 6-foot-9, 245-pound
freshman would immediately provide
the post presence the Gators lacked in
years past.

Auburn wins national title on last-second field goal


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Wes By-
rum kicked a 19-yard field goal as
time expired, and No. 1 Auburn
beat No. 2 Oregon 22-19 to win the
BCS national championship Mon-
day night.
Oregon had tied it at 19 with 2:33
left when Darron Thomas connected
with Jeff Maehl on a tying two-point
conversion after LaMichael James
scored on a shovel pass.
Heisman Trophy winner Cam
Newton and Auburn came right
back with a 73-yard drive, with
freshman Michael Dyer making the
key plays. First, he rolled over an
Oregon tackler and, with most of
the players thinking the play was
over around midfield, scooted an-
other 30 yards to the 23.
A play later, Dyer went through
the middle for 16 to the 1.
After Newton was pushed back a
yard, Byrum came on with two sec-
onds left to kick the winner and give
Auburn its first national champion-
ship since 1957 and the Southeast-
ern Conference's fifth in a row.
Newton's passing and a goal line
stand helped Auburn build a 19-11
lead over Oregon after three quar-
ters. The former Florida quarterback
threw two touchdown passes in the
second quarter, and Nick Fairley
and the Auburn defense made the
biggest play in the third quarter at


the University of Phoenix Stadium.
Auburn led 16-11 at halftime as
the Tigers rolled up 258 yards in the
second and picked up right where
they left off at the start of the third.
The Tigers drove into the red
zone, but stalled and settled for By-
rum's 28-yard field goal to make it
19-11.
Oregon had its best chance to
score on its second possession of the
third quarter, using a fake punt in
its own territory to keep the ball and
a 43-yard pass from Darron Thomas
to Lavasier Tuinei, who made a jug-
gling catch, to get down to the Au-
burn 3.
The first Oregon run went back-
wards, but the next two left Oregon
at the 1 facing
N fourth down.
Thomas
handed to Ken-
jon Barner, but he didn't get close to
the goal line, with a throng of Au-
burn defenders stacking him up for
no gain.
Oregon started the scoring with
a 26-yard field goal by Rob Beard on
the second play of the second quar-
ter, then Newton and the Tigers put
together their first sustained drive
to take the lead.
Newton gave a slight pump-
fake to freeze a defender and hit
Kodi Burns in the middle of the
field. Burns, the former quarterback
bumped to receiver when Newton


arrived before this season, leaped
into the end zone for a 35-yard score
and a 7-3 lead with 12:00 left in the
second quarter.
The Ducks struck right back.
Backed up to his own 7, Thomas
sailed a deep ball down the middle
for Maehl, who went 81 yards to the
Auburn 12. It was the longest play
from scrimmage in the 13-year his-
tory of the BCS championship game
and the Ducks' ninth play this sea-
son of more than 60 yards.
Three plays later, Thomas
hooked up with James, the nation's
leading rusher, on a screen pass that
worked to perfection for an 8-yard
touchdown. Instead of kicking the
extra point, Oregon faked it with
holder Jackson Rice pitching to kick-
er Beard, who dived in for the two-
point conversion to make it 11-7.
The four-play, 93-yard drive took
all of 57 seconds, typical for the fast-
paced Ducks.
Auburn marched right back
down, going 68 yards in 15 plays be-
fore facing fourth-and-goal at the 1.
Coach Gene Chizik went for it,
stacking the backfield with potential
blockers for his 250-pound quarter-
back. But Newton faked the run and
floated a pass to running back Eric
Smith, who was open in the end
zone.
The pass was a bit short and
Smith let it slip through his arms to
the turf as he slipped down.

Meeting with Donovan, assistants proves beneficial


HOOPS, from page 14

the team assumed he would have no difficulty adjusting to the
physicality of the college game and that he would provide a
low-post scoring presence right off the bat, regardless of the
fact that he was making a major jump in competition and was
never a scoring threat in high school.
"I think there was a frustration point for Patric going
through November and into the month of December where he
wanted to do so well so bad that he got down on himself,"
Donovan said. "He got frustrated with himself, and it really
led to him not getting better at the rate that he needed to get
better, and his attitude was really preventing that."
Young admits his mindset wasn't always what he needed
it to be, and he was guilty of listening to the wrong people on
many occasions.
He also acknowledges that all of the hype and expectations
surrounding the start of his career got to his head and made
things more difficult than they needed to be.
"(I was) putting a lot of pressure on myself to perform,
which is probably the worst thing I could do," Young said.
All that began to change when Young met with Donovan
and assistant coaches Larry Shyatt and Rob Lanier to discuss
his development.
The coaches seemed to sense something was wrong with
the freshman, prompting them to request a private meeting
to converse about Young's attitude, outlook and goals going
forward.
"They just helped me, talked me through it," Young said.
"We were in there for a while, just (discussing) what I need to
do and what I should focus on, trying to keep the game simple
for me."
If Young can continue to approach his opportunities with
the right attitude and commitment, Donovan believes he can
find a prominent and consistent role in the Florida lineup.
"He can rebound, he can defend, he can be physical," Dono-
van said. "As long as he continues to do those things, he's go-
ing to help our team."


ADAM, from page 14


of their three-point attempts in the last three
games, all of which have been impressive
wins.
"You miss a shot, and now all of a sud-
den, you're living in that play. And you
come down the floor on the next play, and
it affects something else. Now, that play has
beat you twice," Donovan said. "You have
to have a short-term memory in competi-
tion. You've got to be able to move forward

to the next play."
While the lingering effects of poor shoot-
ing have often been detrimental to the team,
the worst thing that can happen to Florida
is actually believing it has become a great
shooting team.
There's a difference between shooting
with confidence, as Donovan encourages,
and thinking they are capable of outshoot-
ing teams.
That has happened at times the past two
years, most memorably at Vanderbilt last
season and against then-No. 4 Ohio State on


Nov. 16. In each of those contests, UF gave
up more than 90 points - the only times
that has happened in regulation the last two
seasons.
"There's no question when the ball goes
in the basket, that helps," Donovan said.
"But it can't get to the point that if we're not
shooting the ball well, it bleeds into and af-
fects the other things that they're doing on
the floor."
Let's get one more thing out of the way:
Florida might not be able to shoot, and it
might not actually matter.

That tweet was confirmed to be accurate
early Monday morning.
The rising senior, who was ranked by
ESPN draft expert Todd McShay as the
No. 11 overall player in this year's draft
class, will return to a young secondary
that will need to replace strong safety Ah-
mad Black, who led the team with five in-
terceptions this season, and possibly free
safety Will Hill, who is rumored to be
leaning toward entering the NFL Draft.
Jenkins will be expected to help an-
chor a defense under the instruction
of new UF defensive coordinator Dan
Quinn, who has coached in the NFL for
10 seasons.
"I'm excited that Janons has made a
decision to come back to school," Mus-
champ said. "I would have supported
him in whatever decision he made, but I
commend him for making a mature de-
cision. It would have been real easy for
Janons to make an emotional choice and
leave early, but with our contacts in the
NFL, we were able to assist him in under-
standing his draft status and he made an
educated decision that will be beneficial
to him in the long term."
This season, Jenkins played in all 12 of
UF's regular-season games before miss-
ing the Gators' matchup against Penn
State in the Outback Bowl after undergo-
ing shoulder surgery.
Jenkins played almost the entire year
with a torn labrum, and he can now re-
hab the injury before next season.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 Lice help pinpoint when humans first got dressed By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer Until 170,000 years ago, humans hung around Africa in their birthday suits. Then, they put on some clothes and got itchy. David Reed, associate curator of mammals for the Florida Museum of Natural History, and his team of researchers have calculated when humans started wearing clothes by studying the lice that lived on them. The research, published in January's "Molecular Biology and Evolution" and funded in part by a $935,000 award from the National Science Foundation, is open to the public on the Oxford Journal's website, mbe.oxfordjournals.org. The research states that once humans started wearing clothes, body lice, also called clothing lice, started to appear. The clothing decayed over the years, but the lice multiplied. "We think the lice will have a story to tell." David Reed associate curator of mammals for the Florida Museum of Natural History Melissa Toups, co-author of the study and a former UF grad student, said being able to use lice to find out information that archaeology couldn't find was cool. "Using the parasites was pretty innovative," she said. Just as humans and chimpanzees once shared a common ancestor, Reed said, head lice and body lice once shared a common ancestor as well. Figuring out when they split into two groups was the key to figuring out when humans clothed themselves. Instead of putting on clothing to keep warm, the research shows that humans started wearing clothing while they were in sunny Africa. Reed said the clothing might have been decorative, such as beaded belts. When humans emigrated out of Africa and traveled to other parts of the world, the lice went with them. Reed said his next step is trying to trace the lice's travels from Europe and Asia to the Americas to find out exactly when humans came to the Americas. "We think the lice will have a story to tell," he said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Smoking elevator causes evacuation of Newell Hall NO ONE WAS IN THE ELEVATOR. By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Staff Writer Newell Hall was evacuated Monday after fire alarms were heard in the building. A malfunctioning elevator motor in the building caused smoke, which set off fire alarms in the building, according to Keith Saunders, a spokesman for the Gainesville Fire Rescue. University Police Department spokesman Jeff Holcomb reported that the fire alarms went off at 12:35 p.m. Manmeet Waria, a Ph.D. candidate in soil and water sciences, said fire trucks arrived at the scene about 10 minutes after the alarms went off. The two fire trucks that arrived at the scene parked at the Hub and evaluated the situation before leaving around On 1:05 p.m. There were no reports of the elevator being stuck or anyone trapped inside as the elevator malfunctioned, Saunders said. "We have seen that elevator break two or three times before," Waria said. "So, my reaction was that the elevator broke and there was no real fire. But, you never know." This isn't the first time the building has been evacuated in the past two years. An identical incident involving smoke created by an elevator motor occurred at Newell Hall on Sept. 1. Frenzy surrounds Arizona shooting suspect's hearing ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOENIX -Throngs of reporters waited hours Monday to get their first look at the mysterious man accused of a deadly shooting rampage that left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded. When the doors finally opened to U.S. Magistrate Lawrence Anderson's chambers, there was a mad rush for the wooden benches. Reporters elbowed their way past courtroom artists clutching their sketch pads, law clerks and more than a dozen stern-looking U.S. marshals. One man was kicked out after he touched an electronic device he was holding. The room buzzed with whispered conversations. Then Jared Loughner walked into the room. Everything fell silent. Wearing a tan prison uniform and handcuffs, the Loughner 22-year-old looked vacantly toward the back of the packed courtroom; his deepset eyes seemed unfocused. A pink gash stood out from the hairline of his shaved head. He paused for a moment, then turned and sat down next to his lawyer, Judy Clarke, who whispered in his ear. Loughner stood up when the judge entered the chambers. The suspect walked to the podium. Anderson explained that Loughner could face life imprisonment or the death penalty for the killings of a federal judge and a Giffords staffer, and for the attempted assassination of Giffords, who was shot in the head. Four others also died and more were wounded; Loughner will likely be charged with those crimes in state courts. The judge told Loughner his rights, including the right to remain silent, and asked him if he understood. Loughner -who has not been cooperating with investigators -leaned forward and said loudly: "Yes." As Loughner left the podium, his lawyer placed her hand on his back. They walked toward the door, where a marshal grabbed Loughner's right arm and marched him out of the chambers.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 Sinking Ship Immigration bill needs a rewrite Yi might not even vote for it myself." Apparently, the captain's going down with the ship. As one of the leading proponents of Florida's Arizonastyle immigration bill, state Sen. Mike Bennett admitted his measure probably won't pass through the Florida Legislature as it stands. Even he saw how the language borrowed from Arizona's controversial law could cause problems. Just what constitutes the "reasonable suspicion" a police officer would need to check someone's immigration status during a routine traffic stop? Gov. Rick Scott has denied any tie between the measure and discrimination, but it may be an unspoken corollary to the current bill. And while the bill's sitting pretty in the Florida House, that's a risk the state Senate may be unwilling to take. We're glad. While we understand why voters like the idea of an immigration bill, a mere antidiscrimination clause isn't going to stop stereotypes from being a factor. Besides, the state does not yet have an accurate way to quickly determine who's here legally. Still, Sen. Bennett said the bill is not a complete waste because he's using it to open a discussion on the issue. Here's our contribution to the conversation: When the state has an accurate way to check everyone without a cop making a call based on an accent or skin color, we'll give our blessing. Full of Fill-Bluster Picture this scene. It's an ungodly hot September day and our Florda Gators football team take the field to deliver their traditional, early-season Charles Sumner-style canning of a non-conference powerhouse St. Cecilia's School of the Blind and Anorexic. The score is being run up faster than your blood alcohol content at that 9 a.m. pregame, and you are starting to believe this 2011 Gators team could actually be destned for a bowl not named after a search engine website or fastfood chain. Our quarterback (insert either Brantley/ Reed/ Burton/ Driskel or Uncle Rico) chucks a long bomb toward the end zone. Can you see it? (Try to think back before this year.) The ball looks like its about to connect. TOUCHDO-Wait a minute, whafs this? It's two Justice Department officials dropped from F-16 jets, halting the game to deliver an executive order calling for a congressional factfinding inquiry into whether covers whether there is any indication the Founding Fathers would have wanted a stadium with a blue field. Ridiculous? Perhaps a bit. But so is our best and brightest in Washington trying to get involved in the Bowl Championship Series system. In Washington state, a group of attorneys have launched a political action committee, "Playoff PAC," with the goal to kill the BCS machine. The Senate felt it necessary to hold hearings. Even our commander-in-chief vowed to "throw his weight around a little bit' on the issue. Really? With a country currently languishing under the weight of two multi-billion-dollar wars and an unforgiving economy, we feel that trying to salvage a college postseason formula that is more broken than a Larry King marriage shouldn't be the top priority. It's good for politicians to show they care about "regular-folk" topics, but let's try to tackle some key issues instead of righting the wrongs of Utah and Boise State. such a play is constitutional.

Rick Scott for his extravagant inauguration festivities last Tuesday. They say he's out of touch with the sensibilities of the average Floridian who is struggling in the lean tourist economy we're now forced to survive in. They say Rick Scott's "coronation" festivities were an example of the kind of fiscal irresponsibility we can expect from the shiny-domed man who is now our state's executive. To all the people making these claims I say, "right on.", I mean, who could not be cross with a man for spending $3 million on his own victory celebration? The obvious question is: Why didn't he spend more? If Gov. Scott knew absolutely anything about the needs and desires of the people, he would know opulence is the way to the heart of the proletariat. As any good community organizer knows, the only way to win the respect of the people is to put on a show big enough and flashy enough to dazzle the small minds of the working class long enough for them to forget we're in a depression. Perhaps Gov. Scott should have taken notes from the great unifier, our president, Barack Obama. Dwarfing Scott's measly $3 million, Obama's inauguration cost a stately $170 million, according to ABC News. Now here's a guy who really knows how to throw a party. Not only did Obama use private funds for this little soiree, he used about $120 million of federal funds to Nate Rush ing letters@alligator org make sure this shindig was special. This probably included both the diamond-studded crown he specifically required after claiming that he was "king of America," and the fact that he made sure that the party was planned by Corey Worthington. It's really not even that much money when you take out all of the necessary costs. Consider, for instance, the matching leather jackets he ordered for all the czars. Then there's the bark collar he got for Hillary Clinton. Some things you simply can't do without. Considering President Obama ran on a ticket of connection with the common man and concern for the financial situation of the country when he took office, I can only assume this is how you communicate that you know what you're doing and have the best interests of the people in mind. With that noted, I hope Rick Scott has the time to really reconsider his whole direction in his upcoming governorship. He needs to shape up and realize that this opulence and luxury correspond to responsibility and sensitivity. If not, he's in for a rough term. He didn't even use any state money for his party. That's bad form. If we can't expect our elites to spend our money unwisely, who can we trust? Nate Rushing is second-year political science student.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Rep. Giffords' shooting brings out our worst Alligator should have offered coverage of Arizona shooting The Alligator seems to have lost its way as a news source. Monday's edition devoted the entire editorial column to criticizing the media response to the tragic shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, but not a single column inch to covering the shooting itself. Not once did the paper name the shooter, allegedly Jared Lee Loughner, or the six people killed, including federal judge John Roll and 9-year-old Christina Green, or the 13 others wounded. While editorial commentary is a core media function, simply reporting the news is absolutely essential. The Alligator is a key news source for many students, and this failure to report the news is a betrayal of readers' trust. Cain Norris Alligator reader Reader's proposal for forced abortions not so modest While Chad Kimes' vision for a brave new world certainly is breathtaking, his call for "forced abortions" is not a modest proposal. Instead of proposing, "Who should not have children?" (China's policy last time I checked), he proposes, "Whose children should we kill?" The first "targets" are "obviously those who oppose the policy," Kimes writes. What do the supporters get? A complimentary vasectomy? I would rather listen to the same silly arguments until I die before coming to that. Josh Nederveld UFstudent hen President Ronald Reagan was shot in March of 1981 he told his surgeon, Dr. Joseph Giordano, a Democrat, "Please tell me you're all Republicans," and he responded, "Today, Mr. President, we're all Republicans." I first heard about the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords through Facebook. At the time there were very few hard facts. Most of the early reports said that she was killed and about 13 others were wounded. The facts were: Rep. Giffords was shot, along with several other people; it was at an event she hosted regularly called "Congress on Your Corner" where she would meet with constituents on an individual basis; and Giffords is a Democrat. In our instantly-updated, mobile, multitasking, we'reall-experts-on-everything world, that last fact meant only one thing on Twitter: the shooter must be a right-wing, tea party extremist. This conclusion was reached very quickly, without any evidence, without even knowing the shooter's name. Even as every political figure from every part of the spectrum made their support and prayers for her recovery known, the unempirical, two-fact based hypothesis on the politics and personality of the shooter became a "fact" of its own on social networks. Remember, the shooter didn't even have a name at this point. Eventually the Associated Press found it out: Jared Loughner, or, in keeping with the determination that assassins must have three names: Jared Lee Loughner. The YouTube channel that may belong to him is odd, to say the least. In his videos he talks about the importance of grammar and literacy -in borderline-incoherent run-on sentences; he wants to run a business around "conscience dreaming"; and he wants to start a new system of currency. His list of favorite books included Orwell's "1984," Huxley's "Brave New World," Bradbury's "Farenheit 451," "Mein Kampf" and "The Communist Manifesto." Not only does this list show him as more complex than a political slogan, but it begs the question of how Twitter users in say, Tennessee or Illinois can draw conclusions based on only a few facts. There really isn't an easy way to say this, except to say it: we are all suffering from a delusion where we make all the facts we learn try to fit in to our conception of how the world works. No one wants people to be shot at, but if people are shot and killed, on some level we want the shooter to be something Other.

I'm not immune to it, either: I worry about Loughner's apparent support for the gold standard -something heavily associated with my brand of libertarian politics and so I take issue with what I hope was a facetious tweet by blogger Matt Yglesias: "Loughner YouTube indicates the thin line between utter insanity and gold standard advocates." So I say thank God for Rachel Maddow, who tweeted "There is nothing to be gained from speculating on the motives and affiliations of AZ shooter w/o facts." As I write this at 7:40 p.m. on the day of the shooting, there still aren't many more facts than there were right afterward. We know here in Amherst that Loughner is in custody; that Giffords' office was vandalized last year; that federal Judge John Roll, who was also killed, received death threats in the past; and counting Roll, six people were murdered. The flow of rumor has yet to be staunched. In addition to the "Loughner is a Tea Partier" "hypothesis," a number of people on Twitter were saying that if he was a Muslim he would be called a terrorist, but since he's white he's "insane." Some people are calling Loughner a terrorist: Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips said in an e-mail posted on The New York Times' "The Caucus" blog, "The shooter has been taken into custody and let's hope he gets the death penalty he so richly deserves .No one should be a victim of violence because of their political beliefs .we can all be happy that the Congresswoman survived this terrorist attack." In a time of extreme uncertainty like this it is important not to latch on to unfounded rumors coming out of Twitter or Facebook, but to remember our reason and concentrate on the facts. Let the unknowns be unknown instead of pretending to know. As a journalist I'm acutely aware that things can be misreported or misunderstood, but that doesn't mean we should make things up wholesale, either. The day of the shooting we all should have been Democrats, but the way we've been trying to pass off Loughner as coming from the opposite side of the political spectrum as our own says more distrurbing things about us than any of his YouTube videos say about him.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 Florida sued for failing to adjust minimum THE LAWSUIT CLAIMS THE MINIMUM WAGE SHOULD RISE TO $7.31 AN HOUR. ASSOCIATED PRESS TALLAHASSEE -Two legal groups sued Florida's labor agency Monday, claiming the state failed to raise the state's minimum wage by six cents per hour this year to keep up with inflation. The lawsuit claimed the Agency for Workforce Innovation violated the Florida Constitution by keeping it at the $7.25 federal rate, where it was last year, instead of raising it to $7.31 on Jan. 1. About 188,000 minimum wage workers could be effected. At stake is up to $128 this year for a full-time employee working a 40-hour week. If all those the minimum-wage employees worked 40-hour weeks the extra six cents would add up to $15 million. "Unlike higher wage-earners, those at the lowest end of the scale tend to spend rather than put away additional earnings, meaning that any added income goes directly wage after into Florida's economy," Jose Javier Rodriguez of Florida Legal Services said in a statement. "This is not a partisan or political issue. When it comes to our prosperity, it's a 'nobrainer."' His organization and the National Employment Law Project filed the lawsuit on behalf of four individual workers and three organizations that represent low-wage employees: the Restaurant Opportunities Center of Miami, WeCount! in Homestead and the Farmworker Association of Florida in Apopka. Agency spokesman Robby Cunningham said in a State statement that the News complaint had been received and was being reviewed. The suit noted seven other states with similar laws increased their minimum wages on New Year's Day. They are Arizona, Colorado, Ohio, Montana, Oregon, Vermont and Washington. The state Supreme Court said in an advisory opinion that Florida's constitutional amendment, which passed in 2004, does not provide inflation for decreases n minimum wage because of deflation. Yet, the suit alleges, the agency cut the minimum wage in 2010 to $7.06 an hour from the previous year's $7.21 and failed to publicly announce its calculations as required by law. Florida workers avoided the reduction because Congress passed a minimum wage law requiring $7.25 per hour. The suit alleges the agency miscalculated the rate this year as $7.16 per hour, still below the federal minimum, based on its erroneous $7.06 rate last year. The plaintiffs contend the agency instead should have calculated this year's state minimum wage off the 2009 state rate. They said the agency's internal memos acknowledged the Supreme Court's ruling and expressed worries that a decrease would be illegal. Florida's rates are based on annual changes in the non-seasonally adjusted Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers in the southern region.

Sports TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Jenkins officially returning to Florida for senior season THE CORNERBACK FIRST POSTED HIS DECISION ON TWITTER. By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Will Muschamp has made some big moves in his short time as Florida's coach, but Monday may have been his best day yet. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins decided to return for his senior season, UF announced Monday morning, despite being projected as a first-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by most analysts. "After careful consideration, I've made a decision to return to school for my senior year," Jenkins said in a statement. "I spent some time with my family and coach (Will) Muschamp and came to the conclusion it was in my best interest to return to school. Coach Muschamp was very supportive throughout the whole process, regardless of my decision, but he wanted to make sure I had all of the facts. I'm looking forward to working toward my degree, completing my rehab and getting back on the field with my teammates." Jenkins first made his intention known Sunday night when a Twitter account under his SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 16 I Steven H. Keys / Alligator Junior cornerback Janoris Jenkins announced Monday his decision to return to Florida for his senior season. Jenkins was projected to be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft, but he opted to come back after consulting his family and coach Will Muschamp. Young finding his way By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org Somewhere between a relaxing Christmas break and a personal meeting with his coaches, something clicked for Patric Young. The freshman center, who has underperformed based on his lofty preseason expectations, returned to Gainesville with a renewed focus and commitment, and the results have been noteworthy. With nagging injuries threatening to limit Vernon Macklin's minutes, the development of Young could be crucial as Florida (12-3, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) traverses the grind of SEC play, which continues tonight at 9 in Knoxville against Tennessee (10-5, 0-1 SEC). "I feel like I'm learning a lot," Young said. "I'm trusting the coaches a lot more and buying into what they've been telling me, and it's been showing the last few games. In UF's three games since the holiday break, Young has averaged 4.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game. While those numbers appear modest, they are nearly two points and two rebounds per game higher than what Young averaged in the team's first 12 games, when he played 14.3 minutes per contest. Basketball "I think he came back and realized this is going to be a process for him," coach Billy Donovan said last week. "He's really tried to focus on doing the things that he knows he can do." When Young arrived on campus, many assumed the 6-foot-9, 245-pound freshman would immediately provide the post presence the Gators lacked in years past.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Auburn wins national title on last-second field goal THE ASSOCIATED PRESS GLENDALE, Ariz. -Wes Byrum kicked a 19-yard field goal as time expired, and No. 1 Auburn beat No. 2 Oregon 22-19 to win the BCS national championship Monday night. Oregon had tied it at 19 with 2:33 left when Darron Thomas connected with Jeff Maehl on a tying two-point conversion after LaMichael James scored on a shovel pass. Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and Auburn came right back with a 73-yard drive, with freshman Michael Dyer making the key plays. First, he rolled over an Oregon tackler and, with most of the players thinking the play was over around midfield, scooted another 30 yards to the 23. A play later, Dyer went through the middle for 16 to the 1. After Newton was pushed back a yard, Byrum came on with two seconds left to kick the winner and give Auburn its first national championship since 1957 and the Southeastern Conference's fifth in a row. Newton's passing and a goal line stand helped Auburn build a 19-11 lead over Oregon after three quarters. The former Florida quarterback threw two touchdown passes in the second quarter, and Nick Fairley and the Auburn defense made the biggest play in the third quarter at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Auburn led 16-11 at halftime as the Tigers rolled up 258 yards in the second and picked up right where they left off at the start of the third. The Tigers drove into the red zone, but stalled and settled for Byrum's 28-yard field goal to make it 19-11. Oregon had its best chance to score on its second possession of the third quarter, using a fake punt in its own territory to keep the ball and a 43-yard pass from Darron Thomas to Lavasier Tuinei, who made a juggling catch, to get down to the Auburn 3. The first Oregon run went backwards, but the next two left Oregon at the 1 facing fourth down. T h o m a s handed to Kenjon Barner, but he didn't get close to the goal line, with a throng of Auburn defenders stacking him up for no gain. Oregon started the scoring with a 26-yard field goal by Rob Beard on the second play of the second quarter, then Newton and the Tigers put together their first sustained drive to take the lead. Newton gave a slight pumpfake to freeze a defender and hit Kodi Burns in the middle of the field. Burns, the former quarterback bumped to receiver when Newton arrived before this season, leaped into the end zone for a 35-yard score and a 7-3 lead with 12:00 left in the second quarter. The Ducks struck right back. Backed up to his own 7, Thomas sailed a deep ball down the middle for Maehl, who went 81 yards to the Auburn 12. It was the longest play from scrimmage in the 13-year history of the BCS championship game and the Ducks' ninth play this season of more than 60 yards. Three plays later, Thomas hooked up with James, the nation's leading rusher, on a screen pass that worked to perfection for an 8-yard touchdown. Instead of kicking the extra point, Oregon faked it with holder Jackson Rice pitching to kicker Beard, who dived in for the twopoint conversion to make it 11-7. The four-play, 93-yard drive took all of 57 seconds, typical for the fastpaced Ducks. Auburn marched right back down, going 68 yards in 15 plays before facing fourth-and-goal at the 1. Coach Gene Chizik went for it stacking the backfield with potential blockers for his 250-pound quarterback. But Newton faked the run and floated a pass to running back Eric Smith, who was open in the end zone. The pass was a bit short and Smith let it slip through his arms to the turf as he slipped down.

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 Meeting with Donovan, assistants proves beneficial HOOPS, from page 14 the team assumed he would have no difficulty adjusting to the physicality of the college game and that he would provide a low-post scoring presence right off the bat, regardless of the fact that he was making a major jump in competition and was never a scoring threat in high school. "I think there was a frustration point for Patric going through November and into the month of December where he wanted to do so well so bad that he got down on himself," Donovan said. "He got frustrated with himself, and it really led to him not getting better at the rate that he needed to get better, and his attitude was really preventing that." Young admits his mindset wasn't always what he needed it to be, and he was guilty of listening to the wrong people on many occasions. He also acknowledges that all of the hype and expectations surrounding the start of his career got to his head and made things more difficult than they needed to be. "(I was) putting a lot of pressure on myself to perform, which is probably the worst thing I could do," Young said. All that began to change when Young met with Donovan and assistant coaches Larry Shyatt and Rob Lanier to discuss his development. The coaches seemed to sense something was wrong with the freshman, prompting them to request a private meeting to converse about Young's attitude, outlook and goals going forward. "They just helped me, talked me through it," Young said. "We were in there for a while, just (discussing) what I need to do and what I should focus on, trying to keep the game simple for me." If Young can continue to approach his opportunities with the right attitude and commitment, Donovan believes he can find a prominent and consistent role in the Florida lineup. "He can rebound, he can defend, he can be physical," Donovan said. "As long as he continues to do those things, he's going to help our team." ADAM, from page 14 of their three-point attempts in the last three games, all of which have been impressive wins. "You miss a shot, and now all of a sudden, you're living in that play. And you come down the floor on the next play, and it affects something else. Now, that play has beat you twice," Donovan said. "You have to have a short-term memory in competition.

Which Tennessee team will show up? The Volunteers have been wildly inconsistent all season, scoringvictories over powerhouses Pittsburgh and Villanova just days before falling to Oakland and Charlotte in consecutive games. The Gators enter tonight's game prepared for the worst, having studied game film from Pitt and Nova, when the Volunteers shot 50.5 percent from the field and 48.1 percent from three-point range. 2. Playing without Pearl Tonight will be the Volunteers' second game without coach Bruce Pearl on the sideline as he serves his eight-game suspension for violating NCAA regulations and misleading investigators. In the first contest without him, UT dropped its SEC opener 6865 to Arkansas. The Volunteers' teamwork suffered without their leader on the bench, as they recorded only 11 assists against 18 turnovers. Florida coach Billy Donovan downplayed the effect losing Pearl would have, as the Tennessee staff has been together for some time. Still, senior Vernon Macklin said it would be "pretty tough," while freshman center Patric Young said he "couldn't imagine that." 3. Defending the Volunteers UT junior guard Scotty Hopson and freshman forward Tobias Harris are each averaging more than 15 points per game and have demonstrated their ability to score from anywhere on the floor. Donovan noted that the Volunteers are as deep and wellrounded as anyteam the Gators will playthis year, with the ability to bring long, athletic players off the bench and score from the paint and the perimeter. "They're a team that presents a lot of different challenges for you on the defensive end of the floor," Donovan said. 4. Winning at Thompson-Boling Arena The Gators haven't won a game in Knoxville since Feb. 12, 2005, when they notched an 84-73 victory. The team dropped last year's road contest 61-60. Donovan noted that a key in road games is to take care of the ball and limit turnovers, which will be especially difficult against a strong UT defense known for its length, quickness and athleticism. to the next play." While the lingering effects of poor shooting have often been detrimental to the team, the worst thing that can happen to Florida is actually believing it has become a great shooting team. There's a difference between shooting with confidence, as Donovan encourages, and thinking they are capable of outshooting teams. That has happened at times the past two years, most memorably at Vanderbilt last season and against then-No. 4 Ohio State on Nov. 16. In each of those contests, UF gave up more than 90 points -the only times that has happened in regulation the last two seasons. "There's no question when the ball goes in the basket, that helps," Donovan said. "But it can't get to the point that if we're not shooting the ball well, it bleeds into and affects the other things that they're doing on the floor." Let's get one more thing out of the way: Florida might not be able to shoot, and it might not actually matter. ;t~liatol$2.99 DAILY LUNCH SPECIALS Returning CB will anchor 2011 defense FOOTBALL, from page 14 name posted, "Gator Nation I'm back." That tweet was confirmed to be accurate early Monday morning. The rising senior, who was ranked by ESPN draft expert Todd McShay as the No. 11 overall player in this year's draft class, will return to a young secondary that will need to replace strong safety Ahmad Black, who led the team with five interceptions this season, and possibly free safety Will Hill, who is rumored to be leaning toward entering the NFL Draft. Jenkins will be expected to help anchor a defense under the instruction of new UF defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who has coached in the NFL for 10 seasons. "I'm excited that Janoris has made a decision to come back to school," Muschamp said. "I would have supported him in whatever decision he made, but I commend him for making a mature decision. It would have been real easy for Janoris to make an emotional choice and leave early, but with our contacts in the NFL, we were able to assist him in understanding his draft status and he made an educated decision that will be beneficial to him in the long term." This season, Jenkins played in all 12 of UF's regular-season games before missing the Gators' matchup against Penn State in the Outback Bowl after undergoing shoulder surgery. Jenkins played almost the entire year with a torn labrum, and he can now rehab the injury before next season. NES: The 0 bartenderr for details 6The VPar &Grill HOUSE,

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer Until 170,000 years ago, humans hung around Africa in their birthday suits. Then, they put on some clothes and got itchy. David Reed, associate curator of mammals for the Flor ida Museum of Natural History, and his team of researchers have calculated when humans started wearing clothes by studying the lice that lived on them. The research, published in January’s “Molecular Biology and Evolution” and funded in part by a $935,000 award from the National Science Foundation, is open to the public on the Oxford Journal’s website, mbe.oxfordjournals.org. The research states that once humans started wear ing clothes, body lice, also called clothing lice, started to appear. The clothing decayed over the years, but the lice multiplied. Melissa Toups, co-author of the study and a former UF “Using the parasites was pretty innovative,” she said. Just as humans and chimpanzees once shared a common ancestor, Reed said, head lice and body lice once shared a common ancestor as well. Figuring out when when humans clothed themselves. Instead of putting on clothing to keep warm, the research shows that humans started wearing clothing while they were in sunny Africa. Reed said the clothing might have been decorative, such as beaded belts. When humans emigrated out of Africa and traveled to other parts of the world, the lice went with them. Reed said his next step is trying to trace the lice’s travactly when humans came to the Americas. “We think the lice will have a story to tell,” he said.UF RESEARCH SHE PLEADED NO CONTEST.ASSOCIATED PRESSPALATKA — The woman at home with a north Florida girl the night she went missing has been sentenced in an unrelatA Putnam County judge sentenced 19-year-old Misty Croslin on Monday to 25 years in prison and nearly $1.5 million Croslin pleaded no contest last year to seven counts of dealing in prescription narcotics.

Rick Scott for his extravagant inauguration festivities last Tuesday. They say he’s out of touch with the sensibilities of the average Floridian who is struggling in the lean tour ist economy we’re now forced to survive in. They say Rick Scott’s “coronation” festivities were an pect from the shiny-domed man who is now our state’s executive. To all the people making these claims I say, “right on.” I mean, who could not be cross with a man for spending $3 million on his own victory celebration? The obvious question is: Why didn’t he spend more? If Gov. Scott knew absolutely anything about the needs and desires of the people, he would know opulence is the way to the heart of the proletariat. As any good community organizer knows, the only way to win the respect of the people is to put on a show of the working class long enough for them to forget we’re in a depression. Perhaps Gov. Scott should have taken notes from the News. Now here’s a guy who really knows how to throw a party. soiree, he used about $120 million of federal funds to make sure this shindig was special. This probably included both the diamond-studded crown he ing that he was “king of America,” and the fact that he made sure that Worthington.

Some things you simply can’t do without. can only assume this is how you communicate that you know what you’re doing and have the best interests of the people in mind. With that noted, I hope Rick Scott has the time to really reconsider his whole direction in his upcoming governorship. He needs to shape up and realize that this opulence and luxury correspond to responsibility and sensitivity. If not, he’s in for a rough term. He didn’t even use any state money for his party. That’s bad form. If we can’t expect our elites to spend our money unwisely, who can we trust? Nate Rushing is second-year political science student.

Rick Scott has denied any tie between the measure and discrimination, but it may be an unspoken corollary to the cur rent bill. And while the bill’s sitting pretty in the Florida House, that’s a risk the state Senate may be unwilling to take. We’re glad.

It’s good for politicians to show they care about “regular-folk” topics, but let’s try to tackle some key issues instead of righting the wrongs poses a threat to national morale.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Alligator should have offered coverage of Arizona shootingThe Alligator seems to have lost its way as a news source. Monday’s edition devoted the entire editorial column to criticizing the media response to the tragic shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, but not a single column inch to covering the shooting itself. Not once did the paper name the shooter, allegedly Jared Lee Loughner, or the six people killed, including federal judge John Roll and 9-year-old Christina Green, or the 13 others wounded. While editorial commentary is a core media function, simply reporting the news is absolutely essential. The Alligator is a key news source for many students, and this failure to report the news is a betrayal of readers’ trust. Cain Norris Alligator reader Reader’s proposal for forced abortions not so modestWhile Chad Kimes’ vision for a brave new world certainly is breathtaking, his call for “forced abortions” is not a modest proposal. Instead of proposing, “Who should not have children?” (China’s policy last time I checked), he proposes, “Whose children should we kill?” who oppose the policy,” Kimes writes. What do the supporters get? A complimentary vasectomy? I would rather listen to the same silly arguments until I die before coming to that. Josh Nederveld UF student Letters to the EditorWhen President Ronald Reagan was shot in March of 1981 he told his surgeon, Dr. Joseph Giordano, a Democrat, “Please tell me you’re all Republicans,” and he responded, “Today, Mr. President, we’re all Republicans.” through Facebook. At the time there were very few hard facts. Most of the early reports said that she was killed and about 13 others were wounded. The facts were: Rep. Giffords was shot, along with several other people; it was at an event she hosted regularly called “Congress on Your Corner” where she would meet with constituents on an individual basis; and Giffords is a Democrat. In our instantly-updated, mobile, multitasking, we’reall-experts-on-everything world, that last fact meant only one thing on Twitter: the shooter must be a right-wing, tea party extremist. This conclusion was reached very quickly, without any evidence, without even knowing the shooter’s spectrum made their support and prayers for her recovery known, the unempirical, two-fact based hypothesis on the politics and personality of the shooter became a “fact” of its own on social networks. Remember, the shooter didn’t even have a name at this point. Eventually the Associated Press found it out: Jared Loughner, or, in keeping with the determination that assassins must have three names: Jared Lee Loughner. The YouTube channel that may belong to him is odd, to say the least. In his videos he talks about the importance of grammar and literacy — in borderline-incoherent run-on sentences; he wants to run a business around “conscience dreaming”; and he wants to start a new system of currency. His list of favorite books included Orwell’s “1984,” Huxley’s “Brave New World,” Bradbury’s “Farenheit 451,” “Mein Kampf” and “The Communist Manifesto.” Not only does this list show him as more complex than a political slogan, but it begs the question of how Twitter users in say, Tennessee or Illinois can draw conclusions based on only a few facts. There really isn’t an easy way to say this, except to say it: we are all suffering from a delusion where of how the world works. No one wants people to be shot at, but if people are shot and killed, on some level we want the shooter to be something Other. So Jane Fonda blames Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann for Loughner’s actions; conservatives say he’s insane, or retweet the remarks of Caitie Parker, who knew him in 2007: “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy.” I’m not immune to it, either: I worry about Loughner’s apparent support for the gold standard — something heavily associated with my brand of libertarian politics and so I take issue with what I hope was a facetious tweet by blogger Matt Yglesias: “Loughner YouTube indicates the thin line between utter insanity and gold standard advocates.” So I say thank God for Rachel Maddow, who tweeted “There is nothing to be gained from speculating on the moAs I write this at 7:40 p.m. on the day of the shooting, there still aren’t many more facts than there were right afterward. We know here in Amherst that Loughner is in custody; that John Roll, who was also killed, received death threats in the past; and counting Roll, six people were murdered. to the “Loughner is a Tea Partier” “hypothesis,” a number of people on Twitter were saying that if he was a Muslim he would be called a terrorist, but since he’s white he’s “insane.” Some people are calling Loughner a terrorist: Tea Par ty Nation founder Judson Phillips said in an e-mail posted on The New York Times’ “The Caucus” blog, “The shooter has been taken into custody and let’s hope he gets the death penalty he so richly deserves . . . No one should be a victim of violence because of their political beliefs . . . we can all be happy that the Congresswoman survived this terrorist attack.” In a time of extreme uncertainty like this it is important not to latch on to unfounded rumors coming out of Twitter or Facebook, but to remember our reason and concentrate on the facts. Let the unknowns be unknown instead of pretending to know. As a journalist I’m acutely aware that things can be misreported or misunderstood, but that doesn’t mean we should make things up wholesale, either. The day of the shooting we all should have been Democrats, but the way we’ve been trying to pass off Loughner as coming from the opposite side of the political spectrum as our own says more distrurbing things about us than any of his YouTube videos say about him.
