Northwest 16th Boulevard.
Last October, the guild celebrated its 40th anniversary. It
has survived the Vietnam War, eight U.S. presidents and the
boy-band craze of the 1990s.
Within the walls of the gallery today, shoppers will find
the diverse work of the guild's more than 50 member art-
ists.
Drawings of cartoon alligators created by debOrah Co-
hen-Crown, who makes her living as an artist, line the back
of one wall. In the middle of the store, bright shawls crafted
by Malgorzata Deyrup, a retired UF chemistry professor,
hang on a stand.
"We have blown glass. We have metalwork. We have
stained glass. We have stuffed animals..." Deyrup said.
"It's exciting to be in a group like this and show [your work]
around town and get your name out there."
The gallery is an artist cooperative, operated by the guild
members who create the displayed art.
It is a labor of love, held together for 40 years by the com-
mitment of its members.
Local Few of the original guild members from

She continues to work with the guild because even after

"I'd rather do this than my housework," she said.
The co-op has high standards for its members. To become
a member of the guild, artists must submit their work for
review. Only the most skilled and inventive applicants are
invited to join.

TECHNOLOGY


UF supercomputer rivals fastest in the world


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

It may not have gotten a shout-out from
President Obama, but UF's supercomputer,
the Novo-G, can do some things better than
China's celebrated supercomputer.
The Chinese Tianhe-lA was dubbed "the
world's fastest computer" during Obama's
State of the Union address. But being No. 1 is
relative, said Herman Lam, a UF electrical and
computer engineering professor.
"Basically, it depends on how you want to
rate them," he said. "There's not one way to
say, 'This is the best.'"


UF's Novo-G was not included in the inter-
national TOP500 list of supercomputers, a list
of the world's fastest processors, that the Chi-
nese computer tops because UF's computer is
a different type.
The Novo-G, which stands for "new green,"
is smaller and runs on much less power than
other supercomputers, Lam said. This makes
it the computer of choice for space satellites.
What makes the Novo-G different is the
chips that are used.
Lam said the engineers can change the
hardware to fit how the data is calculated in-
stead of the other way around.
The different chips allow for large amounts


of data to be processed in a smaller computer,
making it a better fit for satellites, he said.

"For certain things, yes, we can
do much better."
Herman Lam
UF electrical and computer engineering
professor

With the supercomputer inside, the satel-
lite doesn't have to send massive amounts of
raw data to supercomputers on earth. It can
process the information itself and send down


the results. The Novo-G is also faster at pro-
cessing DNA.
UF's supercomputer can't perform certain
operations as fast as China's, but it is more
compact and can do other operations just as
fast.
In an age where the U.S. and China are
being pitted against each other to determine
which country will stay ahead, Lam said the
supercomputers aren't competing.
But, since both computers were designed
for different things, both computers have their
strengths.
"For certain things, yes, we can do much
better," he said.

Man in Ohio proposes to girlfriend with ad on bus; she said yes


CANTON, Ohio - An Ohio woman has
said yes to a marriage proposal that arrived
by bus.
Laura Kalamets looked out a Canton res-
taurant window during a Valentine's Day
lunch with her boyfriend and saw a public
bus with an ad on its side that read: "Laura,
Will You Marry Me?"
It was signed "Mark" and included in
smaller letters the words "and make me the
happiest man in the world."


Kalamets says she thought she'd have a
heart attack.
Mark Rose paid the transit agency $300
for the special ad and arranged for the bus to
be parked in the right spot around noon on
Monday.
The Repository newspaper of Canton re-
ports the ad will remain in place for a week.
Now it has the additional message: "She
said yes."

Professor talks Egypt-U.S. relations

By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer - " .

The politics of the Middle East will : , i
never be the same again.
That's the message UF history pro-
fessor Matthew Jacobs brought to a
handful of students and guests, as well
as an online audience, Tuesday at the
Emerson Alumni Hall.
The lecture, titled "After Egypt's
Days of Rage: U.S. Relations With a
Changed Middle East," is the first in a
new lecture series, "Hear and Now-
Student Perspective."
Sponsored by the UF Alumni As-
sociation, the lectures are designed to
help students better understand the
nuances of current events. Each lecture
is live-streamed online and is available
after at alumnl.ufl.edu/outreach.
"It's not often that you get
the chance to hit the reset
button."
Matthew Jacobs
UF History Professor


Jacobs began with a brief overview
of the Egyptian president's history and
told how Mubarak came to power in
1981. He showed the ties between the
U.S. and Mubarak's government and
outlined the political and economic
investments of American leaders that
could have swayed them to give sup-
port.
However, as the protests contin-
ued, it became clear the issue was one
of democratic freedoms and a people's
right to govern, something the U.S.
government touts and could use to
help improve its image in the region.
"It's not often that you get the chance
to hit the reset button," Jacobs said.
He said the important thing for the
U.S. to do now is have a keen sense
about its power and resources while
showing general support for the civil-
ity of the new government. The U.S.,
he said, should focus less on the nature
of emerging political groups and more
on supporting the growth of an array
of options.
"I think (the Middle East) is al-
ready changed. The question is, 'How

much?'" he said. "Clearly the popula-
tions are not going to be cowed as they
had been recently. ... It's people who
make revolutions and that's crucial to
recognize."
Erica Ngoenha, a political science
junior who attended, said she's been
captivated by media reports of the
revolution and wanted a clearer under-


standing of the country's past, how it
got here and where it might be going.
She said she hopes our country can
help them to move forward politically
and ,_.:.. ,.. ,ii.::.l1 to help them rebuild

"I think it's great the Egyptian peo-
ple have had their voices heard," she
said.


Study shows


beer may be


good for you

By LEILA MILGRIM
Alligator Contributing Writer

There are 99 bottles of beer on the wall,
and new studies are suggesting we should
take them down, pass them around and drink
to benefit our health.
Beer may offer various health benefits, in-
cluding lowering the risk of kidney stones,
providing micronutrients and aiding in the
absorption of heart-healthy antioxidants, ac-
cording to a study in the Winter 2011 edition
of the American Dietetic Association Times.
Dr. Anne Mathews, research assistant
scientist in the department of Food Science
and Human Nutrition at UF, said research
on beer shows that its health benefits may be
similar to wine's.
Studies have shown that although wine
is higher in polyphenols, antioxidants that
prevent cancer and damaged cells by de-
stroying oxidized molecules,
U F more polyphenols are ab-
Research sorbed from drinking beer,
Mathews said. Moreover, the
barley and hops used to make beer contain
micronutrients that may make it a healthier
option compared to wine.
Lindsey Heller, a 21-year-old senior at
UF, said she chooses not to drink beer even
though she is educated on its health benefits
through personal research.
"I could eat a head of broccoli if I really
wanted health benefits," Heller said. "I'd
rather drink something that I enjoy."
Mathews said the most important thing to
remember is that while beer and wine offer
health benefits, the American Heart Associa-
tion does not recommend adding a drink a
day to a person's diet.
"I don't know for sure that there is a
clear better choice between wine or beer,"
Mathews said, "but health benefits of alcohol
are no excuse to start drinking more."


Senate honors students


* SENATORS HELD A MOMENT
OF SILENCE FOR MICHAEL PIRIE
AND GRANT LOCKENBACH.

By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Writer

The Student Senate unanimously
passed a resolution Tuesday to honor the
deaths of two UF students killed in a rap-
pelling accident over the weekend.
Grant Lockenbach and Michael Pine
died of hypothermia on Feb. 12 while
:. .j 11i min Elhison's Cave in Walker
County, Ga.
Senators held a moment of silence in
their honor after the resolution was read
by Senate President Ben Meyers.


Sen. Cecelia Hardwick, a member of
the Unite Party, spoke in favor of soft
closing for bars in Gainesville, a platform
item for the party for next week's Student
Government election.
Soft closing would mean that bars stop
serving food and drinks at 2 a.m., which is
the current closing time, but would make
customers leave at 3 a.m.
She said Student Body President Ash-
ton Charles, a member of the Unite Party,
has brought the issue to the attention of
the Gainesville City Commission.
Charles said she thought soft closing
would be beneficial to students in the fu-
ture. Soft closing would allow more time
for people to arrange for rides home.
"It's a bigger issue than just soft clos-
ing," she said. "It affects student safety."

Commissioners debate


project approval rights
By MEREDITH RUTLAND sioner Susan Baird said. "It's the City Cot
Alligator Writer mission that's holding us hostage."


County Commissioners debated Tues-
day how to respond to the Gainesville
City Commission's request to approve
projects in unincorporated land between
Gainesville and Waldo.
The request was related to plans for
sewer system hookups from a Gainesville
Regional Utilities line that runs through
unincorporated land.
Some county commissioners don't want
to let the City Commission take away some
of their decision-making power.
"What we're doing is giving away
our decision-making process or :,II.. ,,
someone else to make decisions for us, and
I don't think that's appropriate," Commis-


n-


Commissioner Rod-
ney Long expressed a
different sentiment.
"The more people
who decide on an agree-
ment, the better I feel,"
es Long said.
Long said the same
Long debate came up about
five years ago when the
city of Archer decided it would accept com-
ments from other entities but would not al-
low them to approve or disapprove proj-
ects. Commissioners spoke about possibly
doing the same but against Gaminesville.
The commission may discuss and make
a decision Tuesday.

City Commission hopefuls talk to local tea partiers


ByCJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

He looked like the same at-large district candidate who had
come to all the other previous forums. He had the long side-
burns, slicked-back colonial hairstyle and a voice that makes
microphones unnecessary.
But those who attended Tuesday's tea party City Commis-
sion forum didn't get Richard Selwach.
Instead, they got "Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker."
"You've heard about Joe the Plumber, well, I'm Diamond
Rick the Pawn Broker," Selwach told the crowd of about 100 at
the Gainesville Hotel and Conference Center during his open-
ing remarks. "I love Rick Scott... If you love Rick Scott, you will
love Rick Selwach."
While the other nine commission candidates in attendance
didn't go as far as adopting a political alter-ego, each tried to
flex his fiscal responsibility credentials. Forbidden words such
as "regulation," "government" and "taxes" gave way to more
choice selections such as "cuts," "business" and "responsibil-
ity."
Although the candidates have expressed their differences
in political philosophies throughout the campaign season, they
shared the sentiment that the city's government
Local could afford to make cuts and run more efficient-
News ly.
For some of the candidates present, the ax
cannot come sooner to the city's budget.
"Gosh, where to begin?" said at-large candidate Don Marsh
when asked for specifics on what he would do as a city com-
missioner to increase revenues or reduce expenses for the city.
Most of the candidates in attendance, including District 3 can-
didate Rob Zeller, chose to focus on the latter part of the ques-
tion.
"Increase revenue - that means take more money from us,
and I think we're tapped out :,1,._ :,. " Zeller said.
Other candidates, such as Commissioners Thomas Hawk-
ins and Lauren Poe, chose to center their messages more on
responsible growth management than slash-and-cut. Citing
how the City Commission has sliced millions of d. .11 -,,. ,.-. 1, I r
budget during his tenure, Poe said that the city, if it subscribed
to proper growth management, could see favorable economic
results without having to raise taxes.
"A rising tide lifts all ships," Poe said.
Diamond Rick, however, laid down an ultimatum.


Jordan Streetzel/ Alligator
At-large candidate Richard Selwach answers questions at the Gainesville city commission candidates' forum at the
Gainesville Hotel and Conference Center on Tuesday evening. The forum was hosted by the Gainesville Tea Party.


"You can't tax me anymore," he said. "You're not going to
get another dime out of me."
A key topic at the forum revolved around whether the Re-
gional Transit System needed to be expanded. Candidates op-
posing the potential expansion argued that such an expansion,
given the current economic climate, would not be in the best
interests of the city.
Marsh told of a vacation in Mexico where private minivans,
not the bus line, made transportation easier. District 2 candi-


date Robert Krames made reference to the American Founding
Fathers to support his argument against RTS expansion.
Other candidates didn't view the issue in such terms. Dis-
trict 3 candidate Ozzy Angulo argued that many in his district,
such as college students and low-income residents, relied on
the bus system to get around.
District 2 candidate James Ingle offered a different take.
"I have to agree with Mr. Krames that our bus system is
much larger than it was in 1776," Ingle said.

Walk of Blame

Amblers don't mean

you any harm
Apparently, people rage while they walk. And we
don't mean in a fun way.
According to the Wall Street Journal, several
groups of researchers have been investigating how people
react when confronted with slow-moving walkers ambling
ahead of them. Considering the number of studies and the
development of a Pedestrian Aggressiveness Syndrome
Scale to chart how angered walkers vent, we're guessing we
don't take it too well.
If you're finding yourself muttering under your breath,
feeling the need to explain to people how to walk or wanting
to punch the person in front of you, you may need to take a
breather. If you're scratching your head right now, you're
probably living in peace with your -i.1.- :ll neighbors -
unless you're :, I ,i,, too slow for the person behind you.
We understand being in a hurry and wanting people to
walk efficiently - handling school, internships and nightly
obligations to a newspaper will do that to you - but to wish
someone else ill because they're not staying to the right as
they stroll along is a bit too much. (Please note, however, that
we don't excuse clumps of people from running others off
the -.1.- :,11 because they refuse to allow them a little edge
of the pavement. That's rude.)
We hope we're doing a service to the community by ask-
ing everyone who silently - or not so silently - fumes to
take a walk in the other people's shoes. Most aren't trying
to annoy you. Some people are just slower. Some have time
to kill. Some are trying to smell the roses. And maybe you
should too.



Falling on Deaf Ears


Comic book villains
aren't the only ones
who can be two-
faced. Actually, politicians
could teach them a thing or
two.
Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton delivered a speech
about Internet freedom on
Tuesday. After Egypt's revo-
lution, it seemed especially
pertinent for her to chide
foreign governments about
limiting online communica-
tion at the risk of debilitat-
ing their nations.
Although she had the
speech planned for weeks,
the ample preparation time
didn't stop her from glossing
over her own Internet policy
debacle - namely the ac-
tions taken with WikiLeaks.
The original transcriber
of the classified information
committed a criminal act.
That much we can agree with
Clinton on. We start to see
some hypocrisy because she


targeted the distributors of
said information. While the
records were ill-gotten, jour-
nalists are legally allowed
to publish anything they
themselves did not commit
a crime to retrieve. Once
information is out, holding
the messenger responsible is
like closing the gate after the
horse has bolted.
Some may argue people
involved with WikiLeaks
are nothing akin to jour-
nalists, but it is the same
mechanism Clinton says is
the key to the future that is
broadening that definition
day by day.
If the records were hand-
ed over to and published on-
line by a "traditional" media
outlet - say, a large student
newspaper - would Clin-
ton's actions have seemed
warranted? Before she cri-
tiqued another nation, she
should give her own coun-
try's policies a look.

Why does nobody like the word "like"?


There is a word that gets hated on a lot. It's like,
hearing it gets some people upset. They don't like
it, and they don't like its use.
Someone could say something like, "Be that as it may,
when he uses it, he sounds like a child."
The word I'm talking about is "like."
It has three main uses, and people .-'-''-' :il don't
have a problem with one of them - its propositional use
as in this sentence: "This movie is just like any other ro-
mantic comedy - lame."
They do, however, take issue with the other two uses
of the word.
The quotative version used to indicate dialogue, as in
"He told us, like, 'Quit pruning my shrubs,' and we were
all, like, 'Take more pride in your sl' .,: I:._ ,,
The final use seems to be the most blood-boiling.
It is the filler used as a discourse marker. It's used
in sentences such as, "If the airport lost my dog, I
would just, like, die," or "Just because you dreamed
he can, doesn't mean, like, Bigfoot grants wishes."
But "like" is a juggernaut. It is ubiquitous in our genera-
tion's language. It sounds low and immature, and that is
reason enough for some people to deny its use.
But if you look long enough, you will begin to real-
ize why "like" has sprung up everywhere. It is extremely
useful. As a college student, I come from a generation of
observers. Everyone is constantly updating everyone else
about their stories, their interests and their lives so much
that we have websites and social networks dedicated to
this end. And we can't get enough.
Often times, we relay something we saw, heard or
read. More than any other past generation, we witness
many stories, and that's a lot to remember if you want to
retell them later.


Wesley Campbell You might not be entirely
letters@alligator org sure what someone said or how
exactly an event occurred, but
it is easy enough to get around
directly quoting or literally describing a situation by
throwing the word "like" in there.
"I heard that house show was, like, crazy." We can
be mostly sure that the house wasn't a den of clini-
cal insanity, but just in case someone takes us literally,
we throw a "like" in there, so we're good. It softens the
blow and keeps us from committing to a statement. It's a
verbal disclaimer: "Please don't, like, drink the bleach."
People have a generalized view that "like" is used by
young women who are intellectually slow. The stereo-
type was initially recognized in the 1982 song "Valley
Girl" by Moon Unit Zappa and Frank Zappa.
Rest assured, men use it just as often as women
do, yet somehow, they fly a little lower on the ra-
dar and seem to get away with using the word, com-
ing out far less scathed than their female counterparts.
In the end, it is the use of "like" in place of
"uh" and "um" that paints the word, to some, as a ner-
vous tic which should be trimmed out of all sentences.
So while I, like, know why you, like, don't want
the word to be spattered all, like, around someone's
spoken sentences, most people would, like, agree if
you had "ums" and "uhs" in their place, there's no,
uh, way it wouldn't, um, be just as, uh, obnoxious.
Most of us aren't practiced orators, and it is hard to spout
continuous, uninterrupted brilliance to pontificate using
zero fillers and wield flawless grammar.
So, could you maybe, like, lighten up a little?

Fears about open carry, firearms on campuses unfounded


Senate Bill 234 was filed in December and is unrelated to
the Arizona tragedy, despite recent media articles mak-
ing it sound like a response. This bill would remove the
restriction on individuals currently holding a valid Concealed
Weapon or Firearm License (CWFL) from carrying on college
campuses. It would also introduce open carry to Florida.
Your initial response may be that open carry is bad, but that
response is based on emotion and not facts. In reality, it is less
dramatic of an issue than you are inclined to think. As recent
newspaper articles pointed out, 43 other states already have
open carry, and they are not experiencing problems with it.
Most people with the choice of carrying openly or concealed
choose to carry concealed, whether for privacy, the benefit of
surprise in the case of an attempted crime or just to avoid the
heckling of citizens who choose not to carry and who have a lot
of animosity toward CWFL holders. So, open carry is not going
to drastically change our state. It would provide those carrying
the benefit of not causing a legal headache if their concealed
weapon were to be briefly exposed, as by a shirt blowing up in
the wind, and the firearm being seen in public. So let's set aside
that issue and get to the idea of carrying on campus.
The first thing you have to consider is that carrying on cam-
pus will not involve any new people carrying firearms. We are
talking about the same CWFL holders who carry everywhere
else in Alachua County and Florida: They are 21 and older,
have voluntarily undergone a government background check,
put their fingerprints on file with the state and have been
trained on the legalities of the Florida statutes and safe firearm
handling. This will obviously be only a small subset of the UF
population, so any ideas of masses of students carrying fire-


Noah Beckman arms are false.
Speaking Out Carrying a firearm is a great personal
responsibility that CWFL holders take
seriously, shown here in Florida by only
.02 percent of licenses being revoked for any reason since 1988,
when carry was legalized. That means that 99.98 percent of
CWFL holders have proven themselves to be upstanding citi-
zens who do not participate in the crazy scenarios that anti-gun
people dream up, such as shooting with road rage, in disputes
as minor as over a parking space, or in our case during a dis-
cussion of some topic in a college-type setting. CWFL holders
as compared to the general population are actually 5.7 times
less likely to be arrested for violent offenses and 13.5 times less
likely to be arrested for nonviolent offenses. There is a huge
distinction between CWFL holders who carry firearms legally
and who are among the safest and most responsible citizens
you'll ever meet and criminals who don't care about where car-
rying is banned in the first place.
In regard to campus carry, Colorado State University has
been :I.. , '", concealed carry on its campus since 2003. Guess
what: They have had zero problems to this day. Also, over the
last four years, CSU's crime has dropped by 60 percent. The
University of Colorado's crime rate, by comparison, has risen
by 35 percent over the same time period, and they prohibit car-
ry. It is ludicrous to me that some people believe that someone
crossing over the boundary onto a college campus will sud-
denly become mentally unstable and lose all concept of per-
sonal responsibility. CSU's case will -,. t :'-.,II , give everyone
something to think about, because it provides an example of
successful legal carry on a college campus.


Situations where criminalized carry falls our society happen
all the time, as seen in the Virginia Tech tragedy. Of the 32 vic-
tims, 30 were killed after police responded, and any possibility
of a licensed individual having any chance of defending him- or
herself or classmates had been taken away by politicians who
think that guns are bad. Notice how the gunmen behind these
tragedies never care about - .II.. ' i', the law; gun-free zones
should instead be called defense-free or easy-victim zones.
I understand that many doubts about carry on campus are based
on the concept that some of you believe that guns are scary. In
reality, they are just tools and very safe ones. Also, they're posi-
tive for society: The FBI tells us that every year, people in the
U.S. use firearms to defend themselves against criminals an es-
timated 2.5 million times - that's more than 6,500 times a day,
or once every 13 seconds. According that data, firearms are
used 65 times more often to prevent a crime than to commit one.
Finally, please consider that UF is currently a defense-free
"bubble" - it is legal for CWFL holders, of which there were
about 754,000 in the state of Florida as of August 2010, to carry
around much of Gainesville and Alachua County.
SB 234 would recognize that licensed individuals who are
already carrying are not engaging in inappropriate behavior
everywhere around campus while carrying. There is no rational
basis to the fear that they will suddenly become irresponsible
solely depending on happening to be on campus. The "culture
of fear" argument holds similarly little water: With a majority
of CWFL holders continuing to choose to carry in a concealed
manner, campus will be no more a fearful place to be than any
off-campus Walmart, grocery store or movie theater is.

UF RESEARCH

Study shows exercise could prevent eating disorders


By BRITTANY BRAVE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A recent UF study revealed
that exercise can help people with
eating disorders or potentially
prevent the disorders from devel-
oping in the first place.
The study, published in the
January issue of European Eating
Disorders Review, revealed exer-
cise therapy proved to have posi-
tive physical and psychological
effects, according to a UF press
release.
The team surveyed 539 stu-
dents at normal weight and as-


sessed their drive to be thin,
typical exercise schedule and like-
lihood for exercise dependency.
It hopes to launch another
study to monitor at-risk patients
and see if exercise curbs their ten-
dencies and symptoms.
Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes, owner
and clinical director of Gainesville
Counseling, said the study's re-
sults are significant because the
disorders are mainly psychologi-
cal: Patients fixate on body image
and attribute acceptance to their
physical appearance.
People with eating disorders
equate being overweight with


negative traits. Snipes said successful treatments
"Food and weight have been of eating disorders are social,

preached as a substitute addic-
tion.
"When it's not being used to
escape other things, exercise is
not bad," she said. "In addition to
adequate coping, it can help them
cope with life on life's terms."
While exercise is a component
to a healthy lifestyle, its benefits
vary for those with eating dis-
orders. It has been avoided in
treatment because of the risk of
compulsive exercising - another


condition that is often indicative
of other eating disorders.
Roberta Seldman, a therapist
at the UF Eating Disorders Pro-
gram, said everyone needs to get
their bodies moving, but when it
comes to eating disorders, exer-
cise has typically been viewed as
unfavorable.
Seldman estimated that about
10 percent of UF students have a
form of bulimia nervosa, 1 per-
cent have a diagnosed form of
anorexia nervosa, and 60 percent
have a disordered eating pattern
or follow myths about food and
exercise.


Toxic Nevada mine lawsuit seeks $5M from BP, ARCO


Uranium was found in the drinking water


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENO, Nev. - Neighbors of a toxic mine in northern Ne-
vada have filed a class-action lawsuit against BP America and
Atlantic Richfield Co. accusing them of intentionally and neg-
ligently concealing the extent of the contamination leaking off
the abandoned site for decades.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Reno on Monday
seeks a minimum of $5 million on behalf of at least 100 resi-
dents in the rural town of Yermington where the old Anaconda
copper mine opened in 1941.
The plaintiffs say the wells they once used for drinking wa-
ter are polluted with uranium, arsenic and other metals in a
plume of groundwater that slowly has migrated off of the site
that covers 6 square miles - an area equal to the size of about
3,000 -. .. -l: :,I rl._ I1.s - about 65 miles southeast of Reno.
The lawsuit says that even after whistleblowers started to
publicize previously secret records documenting the dangers,
the corporations refused to cooperate with state and federal
regulators trying to clean up the radioactive and other hazard-
ous waste the past 10 years.
"They destroyed the water supply to this community and
now it's time to clean it up. It's time to get the contamination
off these people's land and out, I- .. II," said Steven Ger-
man, one of the lawyers who filed the lawsuit on behalf of the
residents.
The lawsuit said the companies knew or should have known
that toxic and hazardous materials would pollute neighboring
properties, air, water, groundwater and the surrounding en-
vironment. It said they have 'intentionally allowed toxic and
hazardous substances to enter and remain on" the neighbors'
land.
"Despite their knowledge of the serious health and environ-
mental effects associated with exposure to toxic and hazard-
ous substances and despite orders and warnings from health
and environmental regulators, (BP and ARCO) intentionally
masked the true extent of the contamination, thereby enabling
(them) to avoid taking all appropriate steps to properly reme-
diate the toxic and hazardous substances or to mitigate the
dangers created by their release, discharge, storage, handling,
processing, disposal of and dumping of toxic and hazardous
substances," the suit said.
Tom Mueller, a spokesman for BP America, said Tuesday
evening that company officials have not had a chance to review
the lawsuit and had no immediate comment.
Fueled by demand after World War II, Anaconda produced
nearly 1.75 billion pounds of copper from 1952-78 at the mine
that runs along U.S. Highway 95 in the Mason Valley, an ir-


rigated agricultural oasis in the area's otherwise largely barren
high desert.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined
over the years that uranium was produced as a byproduct of
processing the copper and that the radioactive waste was ini-
tially dumped into dirt-bottomed ponds that leaked into the
groundwater.
Officials for BP and its subsidiary Atlantic Richfield, which
bought Anaconda Copper Co. in 1978, have provided bottled
water for free to any residents who want it over the past few
years. But they have insisted that uranium naturally occurs in


the region's soil and, until recently, they argued there was no
way to prove that a half-century of processing metals there was
responsible for the contamination.
EPA testing first reported in November 2009 found that 79
percent of the wells tested north of mine have dangerous levels
of uranium or arsenic or both.
"You now have evidence of mine-impacted groundwater,"
Steve Acree, a highly regarded hydrogeologist for the EPA in
Oklahoma brought in to examine the test results, told AP at
the time.
One monitoring well a half mile away had levels of urani-
um more than 10 times the legal drinking water standard. At
the mine itself, wells tested as high as 100 times the standard in
an area where ore was processed.

Struggles continue for Gators on second day of tourney


By ALEX PECKHAM
Alligator Writer

The Florida women's golf
team's frustrations persisted Tues-
day during the second round of
the Northrup Grumman Regional
Challenge.
After intermittent rain showers
and steady winds made play dif-
ficult Monday, the Gators failed to
take advantage of Tuesday's calm-
er weather and improved scoring
conditions.
The problem for UF, however,
is that the rest of the field did.
The Gators' 20-over-par team
score, one stroke better than their
first-round total, dropped them to
eighth in the 13-team field.
Florida's woes cannot be
pinned on Mia Piccio, whose
1-over-par 72 moved her into a tie
for seventh as an individual.
Coach Jan Dowling praised the
sophomore for her resilience after
responding to a rough 3-over-par
start on her first three holes.
"The first four holes of this
course are very difficult - every-
body struggles on them - but Mia
has been the best at responding af-
ter tough starts," Dowling said.
Another bright spot for the
Gators was Andrea Watts, who


rebounded from an 8-over-par
opening round to shoot a 4-over
75 on Tuesday.
One of the more mystifying as-
pects of Florida's struggles so far
in the tournament has been the
play of senior team captain Jessica
Yadloczky. After an inconsistent
5-over-par 76 first-round result,
Yadloczky shot a 9-over-par 80 in
the second round to find herself
tied for 43rd.
Dowling remains confident in
Yadloczky despite
(t *< her early struggles.
She said the root of
the senior's prob-
Golf lems has been re-
lated to a lack of ac-
curacy off the tee, but she is closer
to returning to her normal level of
play than the scores reflect.
Yadloczky was not the only
Gator who had a difficult second
round. Evan Jensen shot a 7-over-
par 78, and Isabelle Lendl turned
in an 8-over-par 79.
Dowling remains happy with
the mindset of her team, saying UF
still has the confidence to mount a
late climb up the leaderboard dur-
ing Wednesday's final round.
"If a few breaks go our way,"
Dowling said, "things will be very
different tomorrow."

Florida sophomore Mia Piccio's 1-over-par 72 was one of the few bright spots for the Gators on Day 2 of the

Meagher stepping into role as Gators' No. I keeper


By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer
Going into Florida's matchup
against No. 3 North Carolina, coach
Amanda O'Leary declared open
season on each of the team's 15 start-
ing spots.
Every position was up for grabs,
and no number of stats, starts or
recruiting stars could save play-
ers from dropping down the depth
chart before the year began.
Sophomore .. il --'-i Cara
Canington started every game in
2010, helped lead UF to a winning
record and had the third-best goal-
to-save average in the nation among
freshman goalies.
But as her form slipped in prac-
tices heading into the No. 17 Gators'
matchup against the Tar Heels on
Saturday, fellow sophomore Mikey
Meagher began to shine.
Last year's second-string goalie
fixed her form, which previously
relegated her to the backup role, and
started to compete harder in prac-
tice. O'Leary took notice and award-
ed Meagher her first start in goal.
"It's what I was waiting for, for
a long time," Meagher said. "I defi-
nitely had nerves, but I was also
excited at the same time to compete
against the best, and it really put me
to the test to see what I could handle


on this level."
Canington had to watch the sea-
son opener from the sidelines for the


first time as a Gator, as Meagher gave
up 10 goals and made seven saves
during Florida's overtime loss.


On a team with as much young
talent as Florida, O'Leary explained
that players are either the hunter

"It's one of those positions where
the hot stick is going to be rewarded,"
Canington said. "If you're seeing the
ball better that day, you know, it's
whatever's best for the team."
Meagher played a little more
than 83 minutes of lacrosse last sea-
son compared to Canigton's 998
minutes. Even with the substantial
gap in experience, it was Meagher
who was tabbed in goal against the
Tar Heels and on the road tonight at
7:30 against Jacksonville (1-0).
"I felt like Mikey played a great
game, and she did a really nice job,
but again, they're competing ev-
ery single day in practice for who
is going to start in the next game,"
O'Leary said.
A trip to Jacksonville should
do nothing but help Meagher's re-
sume in goal. The Gators (0-1) last
played JU during an exhibition in
Gainesville on Oct. 2, where the
home team demolished the Dol-
phins 23-5.
Florida's potent offense, led by
sophomore Kitty Cullen, should also
help Meagher by keeping possession
out of JU's grasp. Cullen, coming off
a four-goal game against UNC, con-
tributed four scores in the October
matchup with the Dolphins.

Adams looks to return to form in senior season

* THE SECOND BASEMAN BATTED .224 AS A
JUNIOR LAST YEAR.

By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Staff Writer
jsimonton@alligator org

For Josh Adams, effort was never the problem.
He didn't hit .224 because he didn't have the tal-
ent. He didn't lead the team in double plays because
he didn't care. He didn't drop in the lineup because he
wasn't trying.
Adams was thinking too hard.
Before Florida's 2010 campaign, Adams, tradition-
ally a second baseman, established himself as one of the
premier players in the Southeastern Conference.
A shick-fielding infielder with some serious pop,
Adams earned first-team All-SEC accolades in con-
secutive seasons, something no Gator had done since
Brad Wilkerson accomplished it during the 1997 and
1998 seasons.
But last year, something changed. Whether it was
the newfound pressure because he was eligible for the
draft, or the overbearing responsibility of being a stal
wart veteran on a team infused with young talent, Ad-
ams struggled. Miserably.
Adams, now a senior, said despite the team doing
so well last season, he was constantly frustrated at the
plate. Mentally, he said, he had no answers.
"You go from at-bat to at-bat and strike out one at-
bat and the next at-bat you're hlike, 'What am I going to
do now?'"
After his first two seasons hitting well over .300,
Adams barely echlipsed the Mendoza line (.206) min SEC A-
play last year. While he knocked a career-high nine -"."".
home runs, he set career lows in RBIs and on-base and
slugging percentage. Mt - Ait'a
"It's pretty evident that he didn't swing the bat as MattTripp/Alligator Staff
well as he wanted to," coach Kevin O'Sulhlivan said. Senior second baseman Josh Adams struggled throughout the 2010 season, posting a .224 batting average and falling

Brissett's commitment baffling


After all the dust has cleared
from the countrywide holiday
that is National Signing Day,
one thing still confuses me.
Jacoby Brissett to the Gators? Re-
ally?
Brissett, the country's third-best
dual-threat quarterback prospect, was
down to Miami, Wisconsin and Flori-
da. Yet he chose to come to Gainesville
and join Jeff Driskel, the top-rated pro-
style quarterback in this year's class.
Not only is that unusual, but in an
era of momma's boys, Brissett chose
UF against the wishes of his mother,
who wanted him to become a Hurri-
cane.
Huh?

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators point to chemistry as


latest reason for down year


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

A variety of explanations have been of-
fered to justify the Florida women's basket-
ball team's struggles this year.
First, it was six new players, then youth
and inexperience. Then, the team wasn't
tough enough, and it turned the ball over
too much.
The newest? Chemistry.
Junior guard and co-captain Jordan Jones
said the best teams have the best chemistry.
While it may not be a necessity for success,
she does have a point.
Players on championship teams like each


other, for the most part. They get along and
hang out away from the structured routine
athletics demand. More
importantly, they know
each other's games and
know what to expect.
Clearly, chemistry is
beneficial rather than det-
rimental. It can also be the
Butler difference in close games,
and the Gators know a
thing or two about those.
They have had 12 games decided by
six points or fewer - eight of them losses.

SEE W-HOOPS, PAGE 18


E The Denver Nuggets and the New York Knicks are still in
discussions over a trade involving Carmelo Anthony. However,
Anthony doesn't mind. He even congratulated himself Satur-
day for handling the distractions well. You know, the distrac-
tions he created.


U Florida freshman linebacker Neiron Ball is at
Shands Hospital after being diagnosed with a
congenital vascular condition, UF spokesman
Steve McClain said Tuesday night. Ball played in
13 games last year, picking up 10 tackles.

Adams ready for fresh start

after inconsistent season


BASEBALL, from page 17

"But like most sports, you're going
to go through some rough patches,
and you just don't know when it's
going to happen. It unfortunately hit
him last year."
Despite comparisons made be-
tween the junior year struggles of
Adams and former Gator Matt den
Dekker, the center fielder's difficul-
ties were largely overblown.
While den Dekker's junior sea-
son was his worst, he was still well
above Adams' numbers from a year
ago. In 2009, den Dekker nearly hit
.300, and his on-base percentage was
above .400. Yet, for Adams, his num-
bers were down across the board.
After two seasons of being one of
the most consistent Gators to get on


base, he had the second worst per-
centage of any regular last season,
only in front of a freshman catcher.
But Adams said his issues were
not mechanical, merely cerebral.
E ._, 1. ..1; has the tools to play
the game," he said. "It's just whether
mentally you can handle it."
The senior admitted the difficulty
in working on the
mental part of the
game, but said, "It's
something you have
Baseball to ust try and move
forward."
"It's a new year.
New things can happen," he said.
"I had a bad junior year, but I can't
dwell on it. Now, I've got to move
forward. It's always nice to have a
fresh start."


Florida lost to No. 10 DePaul and No. 19 Kentucky
by one and dropped games against No. 15 Florida
State and Ole Miss by two-points.
"It's just about us staying together and
always knowing where someone's going
to be - just taking that extra step to be a
better team basically."
Brittany Shine
Florida freshman guard

No wonder Florida coach Amanda Butler criti-
cized the team's unity and togetherness after an-
other debilitating defeat by a small margin against
Alabama on Sunday.
"It's just about us staying together and always
knowing where someone's going to be - just taking
that extra step to be a better team basically," fresh-
man guard Brittany Shine said.
But that's even tougher for Shine. After playing
39 total minutes and scoring 31 points against Van-
derbilt and Ole Miss, Shine played just 22 combined
minutes in Florida's next two losses.
The Gators routinely rotate at least 10 of their 12
players each game, and Shine's minutes have occa-
sionally suffered, but she isn't quick to complain.


ANTHONY, from page 17


Since then, Brantley has disappointed and
Newton won a Heisman while leading Auburn
to a national championship.
Meyer's decision to trust Brantley over New-
ton as Tim Tebow's successor completely shifted
the college: -. .. .l I: world, as UF endured a five-
loss season in 2010 and the Tigers won the title.
But Meyer had a simpler task when he was
posed with the dilemma because Tebow was
still in the fold for two more seasons. Will Mus-
champ doesn't have that luxury.
The new coach will likely be faced with the
same scenario, and his initial level of success
will depend on his choice.
Brantley isn't exactly Tebow, and one slip-
up will ignite the whole fan base to call for the
freshmen.
This means Muschamp will likely make his
initial decision between Driskel and Brissett


Instead, she credits time spent during the sum-
mer, practice and film sessions as reasons why the
team should mesh well together.
Jones also said she doesn't want to use that as ex-
cuse for the Gators' decline, but admitted the team
has had trouble with their chemistry in Southeast-
ern Conference play.
"At the beginning of the season, that was one of
our strengths," Jones said. "We were playing to-
gether. We were doing the little things. We were
young, but we were doing things that made up for
that.
"It's something that we're going to get back to,"
she continued, adding that chemistry off the court is
just as important.
Jones said Florida could improve its chemistry
with more trips to the movies, or out to eat - as a
team.
She also said the team had a meeting about the
topic, emphasizing maturity and avoiding the dra-
ma that can unfold by going behind one another's
backs.
The last time the Gators held a team meeting was
on the heels of a similar four-game losing streak.
They talked about being obsessed, another one of
those explanations.
They also won their next two games.
"We've got to be like sisters," Shine said. "That's
going to help us in the long run."


sooner rather than later.
Driskel has the advantage right now since he
decided to enroll early. But once Brissett arrives
in the fall, all bets are off.
Don't get me wrong: It's a good problem to
have for Florida. But it's only good if Muschamp
makes the right choice. If not, the scenario can
only lead to regrets.
This whole thing feels like one of those game
shows where a bunch of women describe them-
selves to a potential suitor over a microphone
while lined up behind a curtain, and the man is
posed with the challenge of avoiding the unat-
tractive ones.
The man in UF's situation is clearly Mus-
champ. But the beautiful girl is still unknown.
Only one will stay at Florida, and the odd one
out will likely transfer, much like Newton did.
However, this time it is on Muschamp to
make sure the quarterback who wins a Heisman
and a national championship is doing it for the
Gators.

Paculba serving as mentor to freshmen Fagan, Coyle


By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer


As someone who has started
more than 200 games at Florida,
A]a Paculba knows playing for a
big-time program can be nerve-
wracking for a freshman.
Paculba, the team's most ex-
perienced player, has opened the
season on a tear with a .500 batting
average and two home runs. The
senior second baseman has also
been a steady presence for a start-
ing infield that features two fresh-
men in Kasey Fagan and Chey-
enne Coyle.
"I'm seeing the ball really well,"
Paculba said. "The biggest thing is
that I'm staying calm in the box
and staying positive. And not let-
ting negative things affect me is
really helping."
While Paculba and the Gators
are looking forward to continuing
their undefeated start with their
first home series of the season this
weekend, they will first have to
hit the road Wednesday to take on
Jacksonville at 6 p.m.
Paculba's ability to contribute
in different ways on and off the
field has paid dividends early. The
senior has taken Coyle under her
wing and said she is already one
of her closest friends on the team.
Paculba said developing a close
relationship with the freshmen,


UF SWIMMING

Gators women look to hold ground in SEC meet


By MELISSA PENDER
Alligator Writer

While the Florida women's
swimming team hopes to continue
its success this weekend, the men
are looking to recover.
Divers for the women scored
89 points, :ll.. i',, the team to
enter the swimming portion of the
Southeastern Conference Swim-
ming and Diving Championships,
held this week in Gamesville, in
second place behind No. 3 Au-
burn.
"We're in a little better position
than we thought we'd be in," Flor-
ida coach Gregg Troy said. "We've
got a real good situation and we're
pretty comfortable with what we
have to do."
"There's a big plus to being
at home, and it will be a
loud crowd."
Gregg Troy
UF swimming coach


Freshman Elizabeth Beisel
will look to build on her excellent
freshman season, and junior Shara
Stafford, who has been out since
the meet against Georgia Tech
on Jan. 7, will be returning to the
women's team.
Troy said he knows what he has
to do with the men, too: catch up.
They go into the swimming com-
petition at a distant third behind


No. 8 Tennessee and No. 3 Auburn
with 49 points.
Troy said the Gators will prob-
ably have to take risks with top
swimmers like Conor Dwyer and
Sebastien Rousseau to narrow the
gap.


"We have some points to make
up," Troy said. "The guys who've
already qualified for the NCAA
meet, we may not swim them in
the best spot for them individu-
ally. They may have to do some
things for the team they wouldn't


normally do."
There will also be some shuf-
fling on the women's side due to
the suspensions handed out to
juniors Lily Ramirez and Daniela
Victoria as a result of their Feb. 5
arrests in Orlando for shoplifting.


aodj uevurd / niigulur
Junior swimmer Teresa Crippen and the Florida women's swimming team will enter the swimming por-
tion of the 2011 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships in second place behind No. 3 Auburn.


Troy said the meet, which be-
gins today at 10 a.m., will feature
four top-10 teams for the men and
women.
"On paper, it looks like Au-
burn's favored a little on the men's
side and Georgia on the women's,
but that's why we have the compe-
tition," he said.
The competition begins with
the 200-yard medley relay and 800
freestyle relay preliminary com-
petitions and continues with the
finals at 6 p.m.
The meet will be held in the
O'Connell Center from today until
Saturday, and tickets are sold out
for all four days.
The early start for the relays
may be a tough draw for Florida,
as Troy said relays are an area
of needed improvement for the
Gators.
"We have to find a way to swim
better relays and make sure our
depth pays off in the meet," he
said.
In addition to vying for confer-
ence championships, Troy said he
hopes to qualify more swimmers
for the NCAA Swimming and Div-
ing Championships.
"We haven't qualified everyone
we would like to," he said. "It is
a real big one being at home, and
then you put on top of it, it is our
qualifier to the NCAA meet.
"So, we like to say it is like any
other swim meet, but it is a little
more than any other swim meet."

and letting them know it's OK to
make mistakes or be nervous, is
important to overcoming their
nerves.
That advice has been particu-
larly helpful for Fagan.
The 2010 National Gatorade
Player of the Year has stepped in
as the starter at third base, and al-
though she admits she didn't have
the best performance last week-
end, the atmosphere around the
team is very positive.
"We've been :..lii,, through
pretty much everyone our first
five games," Fagan
said. "A lot of that
has to do with how
Softball good we all work to-
Softball gether. We love be-
ing with each other
on the field and off the field, and
that has a big impact on how we
play."
Adjusting to the college game
has been easier than expected for
Fagan.
While she knew it would be
much different than travel ball,
the tough opposition has present-
ed Fagan more of a challenge than
getting used to her new team.
"The higher level of competi-
tion is pretty intense," Fagan said.
"But you can feel at ease if you
don't do your best because the rest
of the team is way better and they
can pick me up."


Florida senior second baseman Aja Paculba has helped freshmen Kasey Fagan and Cheyenne Coyle
deal with the nerves that come as a result of the transition from high school to college.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Artisans' Guild showcases local talent By MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Writer For 40 years, local artists have had a home in Gainesville. The home is mobile, an art gallery that has been moved six times and displayed the work of dozens of artists since it was formed in October 1970. It is a microcosm of North Florida culture, a gallery filled with art created by locals and often inspired by local scenery. This is the Artisans' Guild Gallery, a shop sandwiched Daniela Guzman / Alligator Local artist Sharon Cates poses for a photo in the Artisans' Guild Gallery where she and more than 50 other artists display their various works of art. between stores in Millhopper Square Shopping Center on Northwest 16th Boulevard. Last October, the guild celebrated its 40th anniversary. It has survived the Vietnam War, eight U.S. presidents and the boy-band craze of the 1990s. Within the walls of the gallery today, shoppers will find the diverse work of the guild's more than 50 member artists. Drawings of cartoon alligators created by debOrah Cohen-Crown, who makes her living as an artist, line the back of one wall. In the middle of the store, bright shawls crafted by Malgorzata Deyrup, a retired UF chemistry professor, hang on a stand. "We have blown glass. We have metalwork. We have stained glass. We have stuffed animals." Deyrup said. "It's exciting to be in a group like this and show [your work] around town and get your name out there." The gallery is an artist cooperative, operated by the guild members who create the displayed art. It is a labor of love, held together for 40 years by the commitment of its members. Local Few of the onginal guild members from News 1970 remain. Some have died. Others have moved away and could no longer be part of the co-op because it only accepts members who live within an hour of the gallery. Christa Kallenbach, who creates stuffed animals for the gallery, joined the guild in 1971 shortly after it was formed. Kallenbach often sees people buy her stuffed animals for their children or grandchildren. She continues to work with the guild because even after 40 years, she still loves her art. "I'd rather do this than my housework," she said. The co-op has high standards for its members. To become a member of the guild, artists must submit their work for review. Only the most skilled and inventive applicants are invited to join.

The Chinese Tianhe-1A was dubbed "the world's fastest computer" during Obama's State of the Union address. But being No. 1 is relative, said Herman Lam, a UF electrical and computer engineering professor. "Basically, it depends on how you want to rate them," he said. "There's not one way to say,'This is the best."' Florida senior second baseman Josh Adams (right) struggled last season and is looking to bounce back with a new mental approach as the 2011 campaign approaches. See Story, Page 17. UF's Novo-G was not included in the international TOP500 list of supercomputers, a list of the world's fastest processors, that the Chinese computer tops because UF's computer is a different type. The Novo-G, which stands for "new green," is smaller and runs on much less power than other supercomputers, Lam said. This makes it the computer of choice for space satellites. What makes the Novo-G different is the chips that are used. Lam said the engineers can change the hardware to fit how the data is calculated instead of the other way around. The different chips allow for large amounts of data to be processed in a smaller computer, making it a better fit for satellites, he said. "For certain things, yes, we can do much better."

It was signed "Mark" and included in smaller letters the words "and make me the happiest man in the world." Kalamets says she thought she'd have a heart attack. Mark Rose paid the transit agency $300 for the special ad and arranged for the bus to be parked in the right spot around noon on Monday.

The Novo-G is also faster at processing DNA. UF's supercomputer can't perform certain operations as fast as China's, but it is more compact and can do other operations just as fast. In an age where the U.S. and China are being pitted against each other to determine which country will stay ahead, Lam said the supercomputers aren't competing. But, since both computers were designed for different things, both computers have their strengths. "For certain things, yes, we can do much better," he said.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Professor talks Egypt-U.S. relations By KAT BEIN Alligator Staff Writer The politics of the Middle East will never be the same again. That's the message UF history professor Matthew Jacobs brought to a handful of students and guests, as well as an online audience, Tuesday at the Emerson Alumni Hall. The lecture, titled "After Egypt's Days of Rage: U.S. Relations With a Changed Middle East," is the first in a new lecture series, "Hear and NowStudent Perspective." Sponsored by the UF Alumni As7, TT L ; sociation, the lectures are designed to help students better understand the nuances of current events. Each lecture is live-streamed online and is available after at alumni.ufl.edu/ outreach. "It's not often that you get the chance to hit the reset button." Matthew Jacobs UF History Professor Jacobs began with a brief overview of the Egyptian president's history and told how Mubarak came to power in 1981. He showed the ties between the U.S. and Mubarak's government and outlined the political and economic investments of American leaders that could have swayed them to give support. However, as the protests continued, it became clear the issue was one of democratic freedoms and a people's right to govern, something the U.S. government touts and could use to help improve its image in the region. "It's not often that you get the chance to hit the reset button," Jacobs said. He said the important thing for the U.S. to do now is have a keen sense about its power and resources while showing general support for the civility of the new government. The U.S., he said, should focus less on the nature of emerging political groups and more on supporting the growth of an array of options. "I think (the Middle East) is already changed. The question is, 'How Daniela Guzman/ Alligator UF history professor and author Matthew Jacobs speaks to students about Egypt at the Emerson Alumni Hall on Tuesday afternoon. much?"' he said. "Clearly the populations are not going to be cowed as they had been recently. .It's people who make revolutions and that's crucial to recognize. Erica Ngoenha, a political science junior who attended, said she's been captivated by media reports of the revolution and wanted a clearer understanding of the country's past, how it got here and where it might be going. She said she hopes our country can help them to move forward politically and economically, to help them rebuild and bring back some stability. "I think it's great the Egyptian people have had their voices heard," she said. Study shows beer may be good for you By LEILA MILGRIM Alligator Contributing Writer There are 99 bottles of beer on the wall, and new studies are suggesting we should take them down, pass them around and drink to benefit our health. Beer may offer various health benefits, including lowering the risk of kidney stones, providing micronutrients and aiding in the absorption of heart-healthy antioxidants, according to a study in the Winter 2011 edition of the American Dietetic Association Times. Dr. Anne Mathews, research assistant scientist in the department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at UF, said research on beer shows that its health benefits may be similar to wine's. Studies have shown that although wine is higher in polyphenols, antioxidants that prevent cancer and damaged cells by destroying oxidized molecules, U F more polyphenols are abteseatca sorbed from drinking beer, Mathews said. Moreover, the barley and hops used to make beer contain micronutrients that may make it a healthier option compared to wine. Lindsey Heller, a 21-year-old senior at UF, said she chooses not to drink beer even though she is educated on its health benefits through personal research. "I could eat a head of broccoli if I really wanted health benefits," Heller said. "I'd rather drink something that I enjoy." Mathews said the most important thing to remember is that while beer and wine offer health benefits, the American Heart Association does not recommend adding a drink a day to a person's diet. "I don't know for sure that there is a clear better choice between wine or beer," Mathews said, "but health benefits of alcohol are no excuse to start drinking more." Senate honors students F SENATORS HELD A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR MICHAEL PIRIE AND GRANT LOCKENBACH. By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Writer The Student Senate unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday to honor the deaths of two UF students killed in a rappelling accident over the weekend. Grant Lockenbach and Michael Pine died of hypothermia on Feb. 12 while rappelling in Ellison's Cave in Walker County, Ga. Senators held a moment of silence in their honor after the resolution was read by Senate President Ben Meyers. Sen. Cecelia Hardwick, a member of the Unite Party, spoke in favor of soft closing for bars in Gainesville, a platform item for the party for next week's Student Government election. Soft closing would mean that bars stop serving food and dnnks at 2 a.m., which is the current closing time, but would make customers leave at 3 a.m. She said Student Body President Ashton Charles, a member of the Unite Party, has brought the issue to the attention of the Gainesville City Commission. Charles said she thought soft closing would be beneficial to students in the future. Soft closing would allow more time for people to arrange for rides home. "It's a bigger issue than just soft closing," she said. "It affects student safety." Commissioners debate project approval rights By MEREDITH RUTLAND sioner Susan Baird said. "It's the City ComAlligator Writer mission that's holding us hostage." -Commissioner RodCounty Commissioners debated Tuesday how to respond to the Gainesville City Commission's request to approve projects in unincorporated land between Gainesville and Waldo. The request was related to plans for sewer system hookups from a Gainesville Regional Utilities line that runs through unincorporated land. Some county commissioners don't want to let the City Commission take away some of their decision-making power. "What we're doing is giving away our decision-making process or allowing someone else to make decisions for us, and I don't think that's appropriate," Commisney Long expressed a different sentiment. "The more people who decide on an agreement, the better I feel," Long said. Long said the same L.ong debate came up about five years ago when the city of Archer decided it would accept comments from other entities but would not allow them to approve or disapprove projects. Commissioners spoke about possibly doing the same but against Gainesville. The commission may discuss and make a decision Tuesday.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 City Commission hopefuls talk to local tea partiers ByCJ PRUNER Alligator Staff Writer He looked like the same at-large distinct candidate who had come to all the other previous forums. He had the long sideburns, slicked-back colonial hairstyle and a voice that makes microphones unnecessary. But those who attended Tuesday's tea party City Commission forum didn't get Richard Selwach. Instead, they got "Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker." "You've heard about Joe the Plumber, well, I'm Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker," Selwach told the crowd of about 100 at the Gainesville Hotel and Conference Center during his opening remarks. "I love Rick Scott .If you love Rick Scott, you will love Rick Selwach." While the other nine commission candidates in attendance didn't go as far as adopting a political alter-ego, each tried to flex his fiscal responsibility credentials. Forbidden words such as "regulation," "government" and "taxes" gave way to more choice selections such as "cuts," "business" and "responsibility." Although the candidates have expressed their differences in political philosophies throughout the campaign season, they shared the sentiment that the city's government could afford to make cuts and run more efficientNews ly For some of the candidates present, the ax cannot come sooner to the city's budget. "Gosh, where to begin?" said at-large candidate Don Marsh when asked for specifics on what he would do as a city commissioner to increase revenues or reduce expenses for the city. Most of the candidates in attendance, including District 3 candidate Rob Zeller, chose to focus on the latter part of the question. "Increase revenue -that means take more money from us, and I think we're tapped out already," Zeller said. Other candidates, such as Commissioners Thomas Hawkins and Lauren Poe, chose to center their messages more on responsible growth management than slash-and-cut. Citing how the City Commission has sliced millions of dollars from its budget during his tenure, Poe said that the city, if it subscribed to proper growth management, could see favorable economic results without having to raise taxes. "A rising tide lifts all ships," Poe said. Diamond Rick, however, laid down an ultimatum. Jordan Streetzel / Alligator At-large candidate Richard Selwach answers questions at the Gainesville city commission candidates' forum at the Gainesville Hotel and Conference Center on Tuesday evening. The forum was hosted by the Gainesville Tea Party. "You can't tax me anymore," he said. "You're not going to get another dime out of me." A key topic at the forum revolved around whether the Regional Transit System needed to be expanded. Candidates opposing the potential expansion argued that such an expansion, given the current economic climate, would not be in the best interests of the city. Marsh told of a vacation in Mexico where private minivans, not the bus line, made transportation easier. District 2 candidate Robert Krames made reference to the American Founding Fathers to support his argument against RTS expansion. Other candidates didn't view the issue in such terms. District 3 candidate Ozzy Angulo argued that many in his district, such as college students and low-income residents, relied on the bus system to get around. District 2 candidate James Ingle offered a different take. "I have to agree with Mr. Krames that our bus system is much larger than it was in 1776," Ingle said.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Walk of Blame Amblers don't mean you any harm pparently, people rage while they walk. And we don't mean in a fun way. According to the Wall Street Journal, several groups of researchers have been investigating how people react when confronted with slow-moving walkers ambling ahead of them. Considering the number of studies and the development of a Pedestrian Aggressiveness Syndrome Scale to chart how angered walkers vent, we're guessing we don't take it too well. If you're finding yourself muttering under your breath, feeling the need to explain to people how to walk or wanting to punch the person in front of you, you may need to take a breather. If you're scratching your head right now, you're probably living in peace with your sidewalk neighbors unless you're walking too slow for the person behind you. We understand being in a hurry and wanting people to walk efficiently -handling school, internships and nightly obligations to a newspaper will do that to you -but to wish someone else ill because they're not staying to the right as they stroll along is a bit too much. (Please note, however, that we don't excuse clumps of people from running others off the sidewalk because they refuse to allow them a little edge of the pavement. That's rude.) We hope we're doing a service to the community by asking everyone who silently -or not so silently -fumes to take a walk in the other people's shoes. Most aren't trying to annoy you. Some people are just slower. Some have time to kill. Some are trying to smell the roses. And maybe you should too. Falling on Deaf Ears Comic book villains aren't the only ones who can be twofaced. Actually, politicians could teach them a thing or two. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered a speech about Internet freedom on Tuesday. After Egypt's revolution, it seemed especially pertinent for her to chide foreign governments about limiting online communication at the risk of debilitating their nations. Although she had the speech planned for weeks, the ample preparation time didn't stop her from glossing over her own Internet policy debacle -namely the actions taken with WikiLeaks. The original transcriber of the classified information committed a criminal act. That much we can agree with Clinton on. We start to see some hypocrisy because she targeted the distributors of said information. While the records were ill-gotten, journalists are legally allowed to publish anything they themselves did not commit a crime to retrieve. Once information is out, holding the messenger responsible is like closing the gate after the horse has bolted. Some may argue people involved with WikiLeaks are nothing akin to journalists, but it is the same mechanism Clinton says is the key to the future that is broadening that definition day by day. If the records were handed over to and published online by a "traditional" media outlet -say, a large student newspaper -would Clinton's actions have seemed warranted? Before she critiqued another nation, she should give her own country's policies a look. a ll e independent ftorida aliigao Paul Runnestrand EDITOR Elizabeth Behrman Joshua Saval MANAGING EDITORS Cynthia Despres 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 will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 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?

It's like, hearing it gets some people upset. They don't like it, and they don't like its use. Someone could say something like, "Be that as it may, when he uses it, he sounds like a child." The word I'm talking about is "like." It has three main uses, and people generally don't have a problem with one of them -its proposition use as in this sentence: "This movie is just like any other romantic comedy -lame." They do, however, take issue with the other two uses of the word. The quotative version used to indicate dialogue, as in "He told us, like,'Quit pruning my shrubs,' and we were all, like,'Take more pride in your shrubbery."' The final use seems to be the most blood-boiling. It is the filler used as a discourse marker. It's used in sentences such as, "If the airport lost my dog, I would just, like, die," or "Just because you dreamed he can, doesn't mean, like, Bigfoot grants wishes." But "like" is a juggernaut. It is ubiquitous in our generation's language. It sounds low and immature, and that is reason enough for some people to deny its use. But if you look long enough, you will begin to realize why "like" has sprung up everywhere. It is extremely useful. As a college student, I come from a generation of observers. Everyone is constantly updating everyone else about their stories, their interests and their lives so much that we have websites and social networks dedicated to this end. And we can't get enough. Often times, we relay something we saw, heard or read. More than any other past generation, we witness many stories, and that's a lot to remember if you want to retell them later. Wesley Campbell You might not be entirely letters@alligator org sure what someone said or how exactly an event occurred, but it is easy enough to get around directly quoting or literally describing a situation by throwing the word "like" in there. "I heard that house show was, like, crazy." We can be mostly sure that the house wasn't a den of clinical insanity, but just in case someone takes us literally, we throw a "like" in there, so we're good. It softens the blow and keeps us from committing to a statement. It's a verbal disclaimer: "Please don't, like, drink the bleach." People have a generalized view that "like" is used by young women who are intellectually slow. The stereotype was initially recognized in the 1982 song "Valley Girl" by Moon Unit Zappa and Frank Zappa. Rest assured, men use it just as often as women do, yet somehow, they fly a little lower on the radar and seem to get away with using the word, coming out far less scathed than their female counterparts. In the end, it is the use of "like" in place of "uh" and "um" that paints the word, to some, as a nervous tic which should be trimmed out of all sentences. So while I, like, know why you, like, don't want the word to be spattered all, like, around someone's spoken sentences, most people would, like, agree if you had "ums" and "uhs" in their place, there's no, uh, way it wouldn't, um, be just as, uh, obnoxious. Most of us aren't practiced orators, and it is hard to spout continuous, uninterrupted brilliance to pontificate using zero fillers and wield flawless grammar.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Fears about open carry, firearms on campuses unfounded Senate Bill 234 was filed in December and is unrelated to the Arizona tragedy, despite recent media articles making it sound like a response. This bill would remove the restriction on individuals currently holding a valid Concealed Weapon or Firearm License (CWFL) from carrying on college campuses. It would also introduce open carry to Florida. Your initial response may be that open carry is bad, but that response is based on emotion and not facts. In reality, it is less dramatic of an issue than you are inclined to think. As recent newspaper articles pointed out, 43 other states already have open carry, and they are not experiencing problems with it. Most people with the choice of carrying openly or concealed choose to carry concealed, whether for privacy, the benefit of surprise in the case of an attempted crime or just to avoid the heckling of citizens who choose not to carry and who have a lot of animosity toward CWFL holders. So, open carry is not going to drastically change our state. It would provide those carrying the benefit of not causing a legal headache if their concealed weapon were to be briefly exposed, as by a shirt blowing up in the wind, and the firearm being seen in public. So let's set aside that issue and get to the idea of carrying on campus. The first thing you have to consider is that carrying on campus will not involve any new people carrying firearms. We are talking about the same CWFL holders who carry everywhere else in Alachua County and Florida: They are 21 and older, have voluntarily undergone a government background check, put their fingerprints on file with the state and have been trained on the legalities of the Florida statutes and safe firearm handling. This will obviously be only a small subset of the UF population, so any ideas of masses of students carrying fireNoah Beckman arms are false. Speaking Out Carrying a firearm is a great personal responsibility that CWFL holders take seriously, shown here in Florida by only .02 percent of licenses being revoked for any reason since 1988, when carry was legalized. That means that 99.98 percent of CWFL holders have proven themselves to be upstanding citizens who do not participate in the crazy scenarios that anti-gun people dream up, such as shooting with road rage, in disputes as minor as over a parking space, or in our case during a discussion of some topic in a college-type setting. CWFL holders as compared to the general population are actually 5.7 times less likely to be arrested for violent offenses and 13.5 times less likely to be arrested for nonviolent offenses. There is a huge distinction between CWFL holders who carry firearms legally and who are among the safest and most responsible citizens you'll ever meet and criminals who don't care about where carrying is banned in the first place. In regard to campus carry, Colorado State University has been allowing concealed carry on its campus since 2003. Guess what: They have had zero problems to this day. Also, over the last four years, CSU's crime has dropped by 60 percent. The University of Colorado's crime rate, by comparison, has risen by 35 percent over the same time period, and they prohibit carry. It is ludicrous to me that some people believe that someone crossing over the boundary onto a college campus will suddenly become mentally unstable and lose all concept of personal responsibility. CSU's case will hopefully give everyone something to think about, because it provides an example of successful legal carry on a college campus. Situations where criminalized carry fails our society happen all the time, as seen in the Virginia Tech tragedy. Of the 32 victims, 30 were killed after police responded, and any possibility of a licensed individual having any chance of defending himor herself or classmates had been taken away by politicians who think that guns are bad. Notice how the gunmen behind these tragedies never care about following the law; gun-free zones should instead be called defense-free or easy-victim zones. I understand thatmany doubts about carry on campus arebased on the concept that some of you believe that guns are scary. In reality, they are just tools and very safe ones. Also, they're positive for society: The FBI tells us that every year, people in the U.S. use firearms to defend themselves against criminals an estimated 2.5 million times -that's more than 6,500 times a day, or once every 13 seconds. According that data, firearms are used 65 times more often to prevent a crime than to commit one. Finally, please consider that UF is currently a defense-free "bubble" -it is legal for CWFL holders, of which there were about 754,000 in the state of Florida as of August 2010, to carry around much of Gainesville and Alachua County. SB 234 would recognize that licensed individuals who are already carrying are not engaging in inappropriate behavior everywhere around campus while carrying. There is no rational basis to the fear that they will suddenly become irresponsible solely depending on happening to be on campus. The "culture of fear" argument holds similarly little water: With a majority of CWFL holders continuing to choose to carry in a concealed manner, campus will be no more a fearful place to be than any off-campus Walmart, grocery store or movie theater is.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Study shows exercise could prevent eating disorders By BRITTANY BRAVE Alligator Contributing Writer A recent UF study revealed that exercise can help people with eating disorders or potentially prevent the disorders from developing in the first place. The study, published in the January issue of European Eating Disorders Review, revealed exercise therapy proved to have positive physical and psychological effects, according to a UF press release. The team surveyed 539 students at normal weight and assessed their drive to be thin, typical exercise schedule and likelihood for exercise dependency. It hopes to launch another study to monitor at-risk patients and see if exercise curbs their tendencies and symptoms. Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes, owner and clinical director of Gainesville Counseling, said the study's results are significant because the disorders are mainly psychological: Patients fixate on body image and attribute acceptance to their physical appearance. People with eating disorders equate being overweight with negative traits. Snipes said successful treatments "Food and weight have been of eating disorders are social, conditioned in a dysfunctional setting," Snipes said. "Food and weight have been conditioned in a dysfunctional setting." Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes owner and clinical director at Gainesville Counseling The clinic addresses a patient's social support, thinking patterns psychological and biological, and can include exercise if it's not approached as a substitute addiction. "When it's not being used to escape other things, exercise is not bad," she said. "In addition to adequate coping, it can help them cope with life on life's terms." While exercise is a component to a healthy lifestyle, its benefits vary for those with eating disorders. It has been avoided in and emotions durng recovery. treatment because of the risk of compulsive exercising -another condition that is often indicative of other eating disorders. Roberta Seldman, a therapist at the UF Eating Disorders Program, said everyone needs to get their bodies moving, but when it comes to eating disorders, exercise has typically been viewed as unfavorable. Seldman estimated that about 10 percent of UF students have a form of bulimia nervosa, 1 percent have a diagnosed form of anorexia nervosa, and 60 percent have a disordered eating pattern or follow myths about food and exercise. Toxic Nevada mine lawsuit seeks $5M from BP, ARCO Uranium was found in the drinking water THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RENO, Nev. -Neighbors of a toxic mine in northern Nevada have filed a class-action lawsuit against BP America and Atlantic Richfield Co. accusing them of intentionally and negligently concealing the extent of the contamination leaking off the abandoned site for decades. The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Reno on Monday seeks a minimum of S5 million on behalf of at least 100 residents in the rural town of Yerington where the old Anaconda copper mine opened in 1941. The plaintiffs say the wells they once used for drinking water are polluted with uranium, arsenic and other metals in a plume of groundwater that slowly has migrated off of the site that covers 6 square miles -an area equal to the size of about 3,000 football fields -about 65 miles southeast of Reno. The lawsuit says that even after whistleblowers started to publicize previously secret records documenting the dangers, the corporations refused to cooperate with state and federal regulators trying to clean up the radioactive and other hazardous waste the past 10 years. "They destroyed the water supply to this community and now it's time to clean it up. It's time to get the contamination off these people's land and out of their wells," said Steven German, one of the lawyers who filed the lawsuit on behalf of the residents. The lawsuit said the companies knew or should have known that toxic and hazardous materials would pollute neighboring properties, air, water, groundwater and the surrounding environment. It said they have 'intentionally allowed toxic and hazardous substances to enter and remain on" the neighbors' land. "Despite their knowledge of the serious health and environmental effects associated with exposure to toxic and hazardous substances and despite orders and warnings from health and environmental regulators, (BP and ARCO) intentionally masked the true extent of the contamination, thereby enabling (them) to avoid taking all appropriate steps to properly remediate the toxic and hazardous substances or to mitigate the dangers created by their release, discharge, storage, handling, processing, disposal of and dumping of toxic and hazardous substances," the suit said. Tom Mueller, a spokesman for BP America, said Tuesday evening that company officials have not had a chance to review the lawsuit and had no immediate comment. Fueled by demand after World War II, Anaconda produced nearly 1.75 billion pounds of copper from 1952-78 at the mine that runs along U.S. Highway 95 in the Mason Valley, an irrigated agricultural oasis in the area's otherwise largely barren high desert. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined over the years that uranium was produced as a byproduct of processing the copper and that the radioactive waste was initially dumped into dirt-bottomed ponds that leaked into the groundwater. Officials for BP and its subsidiary Atlantic Richfield, which bought Anaconda Copper Co. in 1978, have provided bottled water for free to any residents who want it over the past few years. But they have insisted that uranium naturally occurs in the region's soil and, until recently, they argued there was no way to prove that a half-century of processing metals there was responsible for the contamination. EPA testing first reported in November 2009 found that 79 percent of the wells tested north of mine have dangerous levels of uranium or arsenic or both. "You now have evidence of mine-impacted groundwater," Steve Acree, a highly regarded hydrogeologist for the EPA in Oklahoma brought in to examine the test results, told AP at the time. One monitoring well a half mile away had levels of uranium more than 10 times the legal drinking water standard. At the mine itself, wells tested as high as 100 times the standard in an area where ore was processed. This Nov. 23, 2004 file photo shows the former Anaconda Co. copper mine in Yerington, Nev. Neighbors of the toxic mine in northern Nevada have filed a class action lawsuit against BP America and Atlantic Richfield Co.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Struggles continue for Gators on second day of tourney By ALEX PECKHAM Alligator Writer The Florida women's golf team's frustrations persisted Tuesday during the second round of the Northrup Grumman Regional Challenge. After intermittent rain showers and steady winds made play difficult Monday, the Gators failed to take advantage of Tuesday's calmer weather and improved scoring conditions. The problem for UF, however, is that the rest of the field did. The Gators' 20-over-par team score, one stroke better than their first-round total, dropped them to eighth in the 13-team field. Flonda's woes cannot be pinned on Mia Piccio, whose 1-over-par 72 moved her into a tie for seventh as an individual. Coach Jan Dowling praised the sophomore for her resilience after responding to a rough 3-over-par start on her first three holes. "The first four holes of this course are very difficult -everybody struggles on them -but Mia has been the best at responding after tough starts," Dowling said. Another bright spot for the Gators was Andrea Watts, who rebounded from an 8-over-par opening round to shoot a 4-over 75 on Tuesday. One of the more mystifying aspects of Florida's struggles so far in the tournament has been the play of senior team captain Jessica Yadloczky. After an inconsistent 5-over-par 76 first-round result, Yadloczky shot a 9-over-par 80 in the second round to find herself tied for 43rd. Dowling remains confident in Yadloczky despite S her early struggles. She said the root of the senior's probGolf lems has been related to a lack of accuracy off the tee, but she is closer to returning to her normal level of play than the scores reflect. Yadloczky was not the only Gator who had a difficult second round. Evan Jensen shot a 7-overpar 78, and Isabelle Lendl turned in an 8-over-par 79. Dowling remains happy with the mindset of her team, saying UF still has the confidence to mount a late climb up the leaderboard during Wednesday's final round. "If a few breaks go our way," Dowling said, "things will be very different tomorrow." Jim Burgess, UAA / Courtesy to the Alligator Florida sophomore Mia Piccio's i-over-par 72 was one of the few bright spots for the Gators on Day 2 of the Northrup Grumman Regional Challenge. UF shot a 20-over-par 304, finishing the day in eighth place.

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 UF LACROSSE Meagher stepping into role as Gators' No. I keeper By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer Going into Florida's matchup against No. 3 North Carolina, coach Amanda O'Leary declared open season on each of the team's 15 starting spots. Every position was up for grabs, and no number of stats, starts or recruiting stars could save players from dropping down the depth chart before the year began. Sophomore goalkeeper Cara Canington started every game in 2010, helped lead UF to a winning record and had the third-best goalto-save average in the nation among freshman goalies. But as her form slipped in practces heading into the No. 17 Gators' matchup against the Tar Heels on Saturday, fellow sophomore Mikey Meagher began to shine. Last year's second-string goalie fixed her form, which previously relegated her to the backup role, and started to compete harder in practice. O'Leary took notice and awarded Meagher her first start in goal. "It's what I was waiting for, for a long time," Meagher said. "I definitely had nerves, but I was also excited at the same time to compete against the best, and it really put me to the test to see what I could handle on this level." Canington had to watch the season opener from the sidelines for the first time as a Gator, as Meagher gave On a team with as much young up 10 goals and made seven saves talent as Florida, O'Leary explained during Florida's overtime loss. that players are either the hunter Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Florida sophomore goalkeeper Cara Canington started every game in 2010, leading UF to a winning record. But she has been replaced as the starter this season by fellow sophomore Mikey Meagher. or the hunted. Nowhere is this better seen than at the competition between goalkeepers. "It's one of those positions where the hot stickis going tobe rewarded," Canington said. "If you're seeing the ball better that day, you know, it's whatever's best for the team." Meagher played a little more than 83 minutes of lacrosse last season compared to Canington's 998 minutes. Even with the substantial gap in experience, it was Meagher who was tabbed in goal against the Tar Heels and on the road tonight at 7:30 against Jacksonville (1-0). "I felt like Mikey played a great game, and she did a really nice job, but again, they're competing every single day in practice for who is going to start in the next game," O'Leary said. A trip to Jacksonville should do nothing but help Meagher's r6sum6 in goal. The Gators (0-1) last played JU during an exhibition in Gainesville on Oct. 2, where the home team demolished the Dolphins 23-5. Florida's potent offense, led by sophomore Kitty Cullen, should also help Meagher by keeping possession out of JU's grasp. Cullen, coming off a four-goal game against UNC, contributed four scores in the October matchup with the Dolphins.

Sports ALLIGATOR www.aIligatorSports.org Adams looks to return to form in senior season 0 THE SECOND BASEMAN BATTED .224 AS A JUNIOR LAST YEAR. By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Staff Writer jsimonton@alligator org For Josh Adams, effort was never the problem. He didn't hit .224 because he didn't have the talent. He didn't lead the team in double plays because he didn't care. He didn't drop in the lineup because he wasn't trying. Adams was thinking too hard. Before Florida's 2010 campaign, Adams, traditionally a second baseman, established himself as one of the premier players in the Southeastern Conference. A slick-fielding infielder with some serious pop, Adams earned first-team All-SEC accolades in consecutive seasons, something no Gator had done since Brad Wilkerson accomplished it during the 1997 and 1998 seasons. But last year, something changed. Whether it was the newfound pressure because he was eligible for the draft, or the overbearing responsibility of being a stalwart veteran on a team infused with young talent, Adams struggled. Miserably. Adams, now a senior, said despite the team doing so well last season, he was constantly frustrated at the plate. Mentally, he said, he had no answers. "You go from at-bat to at-bat and strike out one atbat and the next at-bat you're like, 'What am I going to do now?"' After his first two seasons hitting well over .300, Adams barely eclipsed the Mendoza line (.206) in SEC play last year. While he knocked a career-high nine home runs, he set career lows in RBIs and on-base and slugging percentage. .:. "It's pretty evident that he didn't swing the bat as Matt Tripp/ Alligator Sta well as he wanted to," coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. Senior second baseman Josh Adams struggled throughout the 2010 season, posting a .224 batting average and fallin SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 18 down the lineup. He attributed his woes to mental mistakes -something he is seeking to correct this year. Brissett's commitment baffling A fter all the dust has cleared from the countrywide holiday that is National Signing Day, one thing still confuses me. Jacoby Brissett to the Gators? Really? Brissett, the country's third-best dual-threat quarterback prospect, was down to Miami, Wisconsin and Florida. Yet he chose to come to Gainesville and join Jeff Driskel, the top-rated prostyle quarterback in this year's class. Not only is that unusual, but in an era of momma's boys, Brissett chose UF against the wishes of his mother, who wanted him to become a Hurricane. Huh? But this isn't new -at least not for Florida. The lastteam to convince two of the top three Anthony Chiang quarterbacks Chiang Reaction in a recruiting achiang@alligator org class to comTwitter @Chia ngReaction mit to the same school was Florida in 2007, when Urban Meyer signed the No. 3 pro-style quarterback, John Brantley, and the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback, Cam Newton. SEE ANTHONY, PAGE 18 Gators point to chemistry as latest reason for down year By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer A variety of explanations have been offered to justify the Florida women's basketball team's struggles this year. First, it was six new players, then youth and inexperience. Then, the team wasn't tough enough, and it turned the ball over too much. The newest? Chemistry. Junior guard and co-captain Jordan Jones said the best teams have the best chemistry. While it may not be a necessity for success, she does have a point. Players on championship teams like each other, for the most part. They get along and hang out away from the structured routine athletics demand. More importantly, they know each other's games and know what to expect. Clearly, chemistry is beneficial rather than detrimental. It can also be the difference in close games, and the Gators know a thing or two about those. They have had 12 games decided by six points or fewer -eight of them losses. SEE W-HOOPS, PAGE 18 0 Florida freshman linebacker Neiron Ball is at Shands Hospital after being diagnosed with a congenital vascular condition, UF spokesman Steve McClain said Tuesday night.

18, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 UF hoping team meeting solves latest issue Saj Guevara/ Alligator Florida guard Jordan Jones said the Gators will look to improve their chemistry off the court and addressed the topic in a team meeting. Adams ready for fresh start after inconsistent season BASEBALL, from page 17 "But like most sports, you're going to go through some rough patches, and you just don't know when it's going to happen. It unfortunately hit him last year." Despite comparisons made between the junior year struggles of Adams and former Gator Matt den Dekker, the center fielder's difficulties were largely overblown. While den Dekker's junior season was his worst, he was still well above Adams' numbers from a year ago. In 2009, den Dekker nearly hit .300, and his on-base percentage was above .400. Yet, for Adams, his numbers were down across the board. After two seasons of being one of the most consistent Gators to get on lSVb THl A JUNGLE FRIENDS PRIMATE SANCTUARY NEEDS base, he had the second worst percentage of any regular last season, only in front of a freshman catcher. But Adams said his issues were not mechanical, merely cerebral. "Everybody has the tools to play the game," he said. "It's just whether mentally you can handle it." The senior admitted the difficulty in working on the mental part of the game, but said, "It's something you have Baseball to just try and move forward." "It's a new year. New things can happen," he said. "I had a bad junior year, but I can't dwell on it. Now, I've got to move forward. It's always nice to have a fresh start." W HOOPS, from page 17 Florida lost to No. 10 DePaul and No. 19 Kentucky by one and dropped games against No. 15 Florida State and Ole Miss by two-points. "It's just about us staying together and always knowing where someone's going to be -just taking that extra step to be a better team basically." Brittany Shine Florida freshman guard No wonder Florida coach Amanda Butler criticized the team's unity and togetherness after another debilitating defeat by a small margin against Alabama on Sunday. "It's just about us staying together and always knowing where someone's going to be -just taking that extra step to be a better team basically," freshman guard Brittany Shine said. But that's even tougher for Shine. After playing 39 total minutes and scoring 31 points against Vanderbilt and Ole Miss, Shine played just 22 combined minutes in Florida's next two losses. The Gators routinely rotate at least 10 of their 12 players each game, and Shine's minutes have occasionally suffered, but she isn't quick to complain. ANTHONY, from page 17 Since then, Brantley has disappointed and Newton won a Heisman while leading Auburn to a national championship. Meyer's decision to trust Brantley over Newton as Tim Tebow's successor completely shifted the college football world, as UF endured a fiveloss season in 2010 and the Tigers won the tide. But Meyer had a simpler task when he was posed with the dilemma because Tebow was still in the fold for two more seasons. Will Muschamp doesn't have that luxury. The new coach will likely be faced with the same scenario, and his initial level of success will depend on his choice. Brantley isn't exactly Tebow, and one slipup will ignite the whole fan base to call for the freshmen. This means Muschamp will likely make his initial decision between Driskel and Brissett Instead, she credits time spent during the summer, practice and film sessions as reasons why the team should mesh well together. Jones also said she doesn't want to use that as excuse for the Gators' decline, but admitted the team has had trouble with their chemistry in Southeastern Conference play. "At the beginning of the season, that was one of our strengths," Jones said. "We were playing together. We were doing the little things. We were young, but we were doing things that made up for that. "It's something that we're going to get back to," she continued, adding that chemistry off the court is just as important. Jones said Florida could improve its chemistry with more trips to the movies, or out to eat -as a team. She also said the team had a meeting about the topic, emphasizing maturity and avoiding the drama that can unfold by going behind one another's backs. The last time the Gators held a team meeting was on the heels of a similar four-game losing streak. They talked about being obsessed, another one of those explanations. They also won their next two games. "We've got to be like sisters," Shine said. "That's going to help us in the long run." sooner rather than later Driskel has the advantage right now since he decided to enroll early. But once Brissett arrives in the fall, all bets are off. Don't get me wrong: It's a good problem to have for Florida. But it's only good if Muschamp makes the right choice. If not, the scenario can only lead to regrets. This whole thing feels like one of those game shows where a bunch of women describe themselves to a potential suitor over a microphone while lined up behind a curtain, and the man is posed with the challenge of avoiding the unattractive ones. The man in UF's situation is clearly Muschamp. But the beautiful girl is still unknown. Only one will stay at Florida, and the odd one out will likely transfer, much like Newton did. However, this time it is on Muschamp to make sure the quarterback who wins a Heisman and a national championship is doing it for the Gators FUEES T-UEETS! TEEEY UNLV!

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 0 ALLIGATOR, 19 Paculba serving as mentor to freshmen Fagan, Coyle By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer As someone who has started more than 200 games at Florida, Aja Paculba knows playing for a big-time program can be nervewracking for a freshman. Paculba, the team's most experienced player, has opened the season on a tear with a .500 batting average and two home runs. The senior second baseman has also been a steady presence for a starting infield that features two freshmen in Kasey Fagan and Cheyenne Coyle. "I'm seeing the ball really well," Paculba said. "The biggest thing is that I'm staying calm in the box and staying positive. And not letting negative things affect me is really helping." While Paculba and the Gators are looking forward to continuing their undefeated start with their first home series of the season this weekend, they will first have to hit the road Wednesday to take on Jacksonville at 6 p.m. Paculba's ability to contribute in different ways on and off the field has paid dividends early. The senior has taken Coyle under her wing and said she is already one of her closest friends on the team. Paculba said developing a close relationship with the freshmen, and letting them know it's OK to make mistakes or be nervous, is important to overcoming their nerves. That advice has been particularly helpful for Fagan. The 2010 National Gatorade Player of the Year has stepped in as the starter at third base, and although she admits she didn't have the best performance last weekend, the atmosphere around the team is very positive. "We've been rolling through pretty much everyone our first five games," Fagan said. "A lot of that has to do with how good we all work toSoftball gether. We love being with each other on the field and off the field, and that has a big impact on how we play." Adjusting to the college game has been easier than expected for Fagan. While she knew it would be much different than travel ball, the tough opposition has presented Fagan more of a challenge than getting used to her new team. "The higher level of competition is pretty intense," Fagan said. "But you can feel at ease if you don't do your best because the rest of the team is way better and they can pick me up." -~7 -7 Steven H. Keys/ Alligator Florida senior second baseman Aja Paculba has helped freshmen Kasey Fagan and Cheyenne Coyle deal with the nerves that come as a result of the transition from high school to college. Gators women look to hold ground in SEC meet By MELISSA PENDER Alligator Writer While the Florida women's swimming team hopes to continue its success this weekend, the men are looking to recover. Divers for the women scored 89 points, allowing the team to enter the swimming portion of the Southeastern Conference Swimming and Diving Championships, held this week in Gainesville, in second place behind No. 3 Auburn. "We're in a little better position than we thought we'd be in," Florida coach Gregg Troy said. "We've got a real good situation and we're pretty comfortable with what we have to do." "There's a big plus to being at home, and it will be a loud crowd." Gregg Troy UF swimming coach Freshman Elizabeth Beisel will look to build on her excellent freshman season, and junior Shara Stafford, who has been out since the meet against Georgia Tech on Jan. 7, will be returning to the women's team. Troy said he knows what he has to do with the men, too: catch up. They go into the swimming competition at a distant third behind No. 8 Tennessee and No. 3 Auburn with 49 points. Troy said the Gators will probably have to take risks with top swimmers like Conor Dwyer and Sebastien Rousseau to narrow the gap. "We have some points to make up," Troy said. "The guys who've already qualified for the NCAA meet, we may not swim them in the best spot for them individually. They may have to do some things for the team they wouldn't normally do." There will also be some shuffling on the women's side due to the suspensions handed out to juniors Lily Ramirez and Daniela Victoria as a result of their Feb. 5 arrests in Orlando for shoplifting. Junior swimmer Teresa Crippen and the Florida women's swimming team will enter the swimming portion of the 2011 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships in second place behind No. 3 Auburn. Troy said the meet, which begins today at 10 a.m., will feature four top-10 teams for the men and women. "On paper, it looks like Auburn's favored a little on the men's side and Georgia on the women's, but that's why we have the competition," he said. The competition begins with the 200-yard medley relay and 800 freestyle relay preliminary competitions and continues with the finals at 6 p.m. The meet will be held in the O'Connell Center from today until Saturday, and tickets are sold out for all four days. The early start for the relays may be a tough draw for Florida, as Troy said relays are an area of needed improvement for the Gators. "We have to find a way to swim better relays and make sure our depth pays off in the meet," he said. In addition to vying for conference championships, Troy said he hopes to qualify more swimmers for the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. "We haven't qualified everyone we would like to," he said. "It is a real big one being at home, and then you put on top of it, it is our qualihfer to the NCAA meet. "So, we like to say it is like any other swim meet, but it is a little more than any other swim meet."

Laura Kalamets looked out a Canton restaurant window during a Valentine’s Day lunch with her boyfriend and saw a public bus with an ad on its side that read: “Laura, Will You Marry Me?” It was signed “Mark” and included in smaller letters the words “and make me the happiest man in the world.” Kalamets says she thought she’d have a heart attack. Mark Rose paid the transit agency $300 for the special ad and arranged for the bus to be parked in the right spot around noon on Monday. The Repository newspaper of Canton reports the ad will remain in place for a week. Now it has the additional message: “She said yes.”— THE ASSOCIATED PRESS By MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Writer For 40 years, local artists have had a home in Gainesville. The home is mobile, an art gallery that has been moved six times and displayed the work of dozens of artists since it was formed in October 1970. with art created by locals and often inspired by local scenery. This is the Artisans’ Guild Gallery, a shop sandwiched between stores in Millhopper Square Shopping Center on Northwest 16th Boulevard. Last October, the guild celebrated its 40th anniversary. It has survived the Vietnam War, eight U.S. presidents and the boy-band craze of the 1990s. the diverse work of the guild’s more than 50 member artists. Drawings of cartoon alligators created by debOrah Cohen-Crown, who makes her living as an artist, line the back of one wall. In the middle of the store, bright shawls crafted by Malgorzata Deyrup, a retired UF chemistry professor, hang on a stand. “We have blown glass. We have metalwork. We have stained glass. We have stuffed animals” Deyrup said. “It’s exciting to be in a group like this and show [your work] around town and get your name out there.” The gallery is an artist cooperative, operated by the guild members who create the displayed art. It is a labor of love, held together for 40 years by the com mitment of its members. Few of the original guild members from 1970 remain. Some have died. Others have moved away and could no longer be part of the co-op because it only accepts members who live within an hour of the gallery. Christa Kallenbach, who creates stuffed animals for the gallery, joined the guild in 1971 shortly after it was formed. Kallenbach often sees people buy her stuffed animals for their children or grandchildren. She continues to work with the guild because even after 40 years, she still loves her art. “I’d rather do this than my housework,” she said. The co-op has high standards for its members. To become a member of the guild, artists must submit their work for review. Only the most skilled and inventive applicants are invited to join.

The Chinese Tianhe-1A was dubbed “the world’s fastest computer” during Obama’s State of the Union address. But being No. 1 is relative, said Herman Lam, a UF electrical and computer engineering professor. “Basically, it depends on how you want to rate them,” he said. “There’s not one way to say, ‘This is the best.’” UF’s Novo-G was not included in the inter national TOP500 list of supercomputers, a list of the world’s fastest processors, that the Chinese computer tops because UF’s computer is a different type. The Novo-G, which stands for “new green,” is smaller and runs on much less power than other supercomputers, Lam said. This makes it the computer of choice for space satellites. What makes the Novo-G different is the chips that are used. Lam said the engineers can change the stead of the other way around. The different chips allow for large amounts of data to be processed in a smaller computer, With the supercomputer inside, the satellite doesn’t have to send massive amounts of raw data to supercomputers on earth. It can process the information itself and send down the results. The Novo-G is also faster at processing DNA. UF’s supercomputer can’t perform certain operations as fast as China’s, but it is more compact and can do other operations just as fast. In an age where the U.S. and China are being pitted against each other to determine which country will stay ahead, Lam said the supercomputers aren’t competing. But, since both computers were designed for different things, both computers have their strengths. “For certain things, yes, we can do much better,” he said.UF supercomputer rivals fastest in the world Ne ws Local SEE GUILD, P AGE 8 “For certain things, yes, we can do much better.”Herman Lam UF electrical and computer engineering professor

By KAT BEINAlligator Staff Writer The politics of the Middle East will never be the same again. That’s the message UF history professor Matthew Jacobs brought to a handful of students and guests, as well as an online audience, Tuesday at the Emerson Alumni Hall. The lecture, titled “After Egypt’s Days of Rage: U.S. Relations With a new lecture series, “Hear and Now— Student Perspective.” Sponsored by the UF Alumni Association, the lectures are designed to help students better understand the nuances of current events. Each lecture is live-streamed online and is available Jacobs began with a brief overview of the Egyptian president’s history and told how Mubarak came to power in 1981. He showed the ties between the U.S. and Mubarak’s government and outlined the political and economic investments of American leaders that could have swayed them to give support. However, as the protests continued, it became clear the issue was one of democratic freedoms and a people’s right to govern, something the U.S. government touts and could use to help improve its image in the region. “It’s not often that you get the chance to hit the reset button,” Jacobs said. He said the important thing for the U.S. to do now is have a keen sense about its power and resources while showing general support for the civility of the new government. The U.S., he said, should focus less on the nature of emerging political groups and more on supporting the growth of an array of options. “I think (the Middle East) is already changed. The question is, ‘How much?’” he said. “Clearly the populations are not going to be cowed as they had been recently. It’s people who make revolutions and that’s crucial to recognize.” Erica Ngoenha, a political science junior who attended, said she’s been captivated by media reports of the revolution and wanted a clearer under standing of the country’s past, how it got here and where it might be going. She said she hopes our country can help them to move forward politically and economically, to help them rebuild and bring back some stability. “I think it’s great the Egyptian people have had their voices heard,” she said. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011Daniela Guzman / AlligatorUF history professor and author Matthew Jacobs speaks to students about Egypt at the Emerson Alumni Hall on Tuesday afternoon.

Dr. Anne Mathews, research assistant scientist in the department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at UF, said research similar to wine’s. Studies have shown that although wine is higher in polyphenols, antioxidants that prevent cancer and damaged cells by destroying oxidized molecules, more polyphenols are absorbed from drinking beer, Mathews said. Moreover, the barley and hops used to make beer contain micronutrients that may make it a healthier option compared to wine. Lindsey Heller, a 21-year-old senior at UF, said she chooses not to drink beer even through personal research. “I could eat a head of broccoli if I really rather drink something that I enjoy.” Mathews said the most important thing to remember is that while beer and wine offer tion does not recommend adding a drink a day to a person’s diet. “I don’t know for sure that there is a clear better choice between wine or beer,” are no excuse to start drinking more.” Study shows beer may be good for youProfessor talks Egypt-U.S. relationsBy MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Writer County Commissioners debated Tuesday how to respond to the Gainesville City Commission’s request to approve projects in unincorporated land between Gainesville and Waldo. The request was related to plans for sewer system hookups from a Gainesville Regional Utilities line that runs through unincorporated land. Some county commissioners don’t want to let the City Commission take away some of their decision-making power. “What we’re doing is giving away our decision-making process or allowing someone else to make decisions for us, and I don’t think that’s appropriate,” Commissioner Susan Baird said. “It’s the City Commission that’s holding us hostage.” Commissioner Rodney Long expressed a different sentiment. “The more people who decide on an agreement, the better I feel,” Long said. Long said the same debate came up about city of Archer decided it would accept comments from other entities but would not allow them to approve or disapprove projects. Commissioners spoke about possibly doing the same but against Gainesville. The commission may discuss and make a decision Tuesday.Commissioners debate project approval rights “It’s not often that you get the chance to hit the reset button.”Matthew Jacobs UF History Professor UF Re searc h SENATORS HELD A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR MICHAEL PIRIE AND GRANT LOCKENBACH.By HANNAH WINSTONAlligator Writer The Student Senate unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday to honor the deaths of two UF students killed in a rappelling accident over the weekend. Grant Lockenbach and Michael Pirie died of hypothermia on Feb. 12 while rappelling in Ellison’s Cave in Walker County, Ga. Senators held a moment of silence in their honor after the resolution was read by Senate President Ben Meyers. Sen. Cecelia Hardwick, a member of the Unite Party, spoke in favor of soft closing for bars in Gainesville, a platform item for the party for next week’s Student Government election. Soft closing would mean that bars stop serving food and drinks at 2 a.m., which is the current closing time, but would make customers leave at 3 a.m. She said Student Body President Ashton Charles, a member of the Unite Party, has brought the issue to the attention of the Gainesville City Commission. Charles said she thought soft closing ture. Soft closing would allow more time for people to arrange for rides home. “It’s a bigger issue than just soft closing,” she said. “It affects student safety.” Senate honors studentsLong LOCAL

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 By CJ PRUNERAlligator Staff Writer He looked like the same at-large district candidate who had come to all the other previous forums. He had the long sideburns, slicked-back colonial hairstyle and a voice that makes microphones unnecessary. But those who attended Tuesday’s tea party City Commission forum didn’t get Richard Selwach. Instead, they got “Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker.” “You’ve heard about Joe the Plumber, well, I’m Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker,” Selwach told the crowd of about 100 at the Gainesville Hotel and Conference Center during his opening remarks. “I love Rick Scott ... If you love Rick Scott, you will love Rick Selwach.” While the other nine commission candidates in attendance didn’t go as far as adopting a political alter-ego, each tried to choice selections such as “cuts,” “business” and “responsibility.” in political philosophies throughout the campaign season, they shared the sentiment that the city’s government ly. cannot come sooner to the city’s budget. “Gosh, where to begin?” said at-large candidate Don Marsh Most of the candidates in attendance, including District 3 candidate Rob Zeller, chose to focus on the latter part of the question. “Increase revenue — that means take more money from us, and I think we’re tapped out already,” Zeller said. Other candidates, such as Commissioners Thomas Hawkins and Lauren Poe, chose to center their messages more on responsible growth management than slash-and-cut. Citing how the City Commission has sliced millions of dollars from its budget during his tenure, Poe said that the city, if it subscribed to proper growth management, could see favorable economic “A rising tide lifts all ships,” Poe said. Diamond Rick, however, laid down an ultimatum. get another dime out of me.” A key topic at the forum revolved around whether the Regiven the current economic climate, would not be in the best interests of the city. not the bus line, made transportation easier. District 2 candidate Robert Krames made reference to the American Founding Other candidates didn’t view the issue in such terms. District 3 candidate Ozzy Angulo argued that many in his district, such as college students and low-income residents, relied on the bus system to get around. District 2 candidate James Ingle offered a different take. “I have to agree with Mr. Krames that our bus system is much larger than it was in 1776,” Ingle said.City Commission hopefuls talk to local tea partiersJordan Streetzel / AlligatorAt-large candidate Richard Selwach answers questions at the Gainesville city commission candidates’ forum at the Gainesville Hotel and Conference Center on Tuesday evening.

Today’s question: Which Lady do you prefer — Gaga or Antebellum? Falling on Deaf EarsComic book villains aren’t the only ones who can be twofaced. Actually, politicians could teach them a thing or two. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered a speech about Internet freedom on Tuesday. After Egypt’s revolution, it seemed especially pertinent for her to chide foreign governments about limiting online communication at the risk of debilitating their nations. Although she had the speech planned for weeks, the ample preparation time didn’t stop her from glossing over her own Internet policy debacle — namely the actions taken with WikiLeaks. The original transcriber committed a criminal act. That much we can agree with Clinton on. We start to see some hypocrisy because she targeted the distributors of said information. While the records were ill-gotten, jour nalists are legally allowed to publish anything they themselves did not commit a crime to retrieve. Once information is out, holding the messenger responsible is like closing the gate after the horse has bolted. Some may argue people involved with WikiLeaks are nothing akin to jour nalists, but it is the same mechanism Clinton says is the key to the future that is day by day. If the records were handed over to and published online by a “traditional” media outlet — say, a large student newspaper — would Clinton’s actions have seemed warranted? Before she critiqued another nation, she should give her own country’s policies a look.Walk of BlameAmblers don’t mean you any harmApparently, people rage while they walk. And we don’t mean in a fun way. According to the Wall Street Journal, several groups of researchers have been investigating how people react when confronted with slow-moving walkers ambling ahead of them. Considering the number of studies and the development of a Pedestrian Aggressiveness Syndrome Scale to chart how angered walkers vent, we’re guessing we don’t take it too well. feeling the need to explain to people how to walk or wanting to punch the person in front of you, you may need to take a breather. If you’re scratching your head right now, you’re probably living in peace with your sidewalk neighbors — unless you’re walking too slow for the person behind you. We understand being in a hurry and wanting people to obligations to a newspaper will do that to you — but to wish someone else ill because they’re not staying to the right as they stroll along is a bit too much. (Please note, however, that we don’t excuse clumps of people from running others off the sidewalk because they refuse to allow them a little edge of the pavement. That’s rude.) We hope we’re doing a service to the community by asking everyone who silently — or not so silently — fumes to take a walk in the other people’s shoes. Most aren’t trying to annoy you. Some people are just slower. Some have time to kill. Some are trying to smell the roses. And maybe you should too. Why does nobody like the word “like”?There is a word that gets hated on a lot. It’s like, hearing it gets some people upset. They don’t like it, and they don’t like its use. Someone could say something like, “Be that as it may, when he uses it, he sounds like a child.” The word I’m talking about is “like.” It has three main uses, and people generally don’t have a problem with one of them — its propositional use as in this sentence: “This movie is just like any other romantic comedy — lame.” They do, however, take issue with the other two uses of the word. The quotative version used to indicate dialogue, as in “He told us, like, ‘Quit pruning my shrubs,’ and we were all, like, ‘Take more pride in your shrubbery.’” in sentences such as, “If the airport lost my dog, I would just, like, die,” or “Just because you dreamed he can, doesn’t mean, like, Bigfoot grants wishes.” But “like” is a juggernaut. It is ubiquitous in our generation’s language. It sounds low and immature, and that is reason enough for some people to deny its use. But if you look long enough, you will begin to realize why “like” has sprung up everywhere. It is extremely useful. As a college student, I come from a generation of observers. Everyone is constantly updating everyone else about their stories, their interests and their lives so much that we have websites and social networks dedicated to this end. And we can’t get enough. Often times, we relay something we saw, heard or read. More than any other past generation, we witness many stories, and that’s a lot to remember if you want to retell them later. You might not be entirely sure what someone said or how exactly an event occurred, but it is easy enough to get around directly quoting or literally describing a situation by throwing the word “like” in there. “I heard that house show was, like, crazy.” We can be mostly sure that the house wasn’t a den of clinical insanity, but just in case someone takes us literally, we throw a “like” in there, so we’re good. It softens the blow and keeps us from committing to a statement. It’s a verbal disclaimer: “Please don’t, like, drink the bleach.” People have a generalized view that “like” is used by young women who are intellectually slow. The stereotype was initially recognized in the 1982 song “Valley Girl” by Moon Unit Zappa and Frank Zappa. Rest assured, men use it just as often as women dar and seem to get away with using the word, coming out far less scathed than their female counterparts. In the end, it is the use of “like” in place of “uh” and “um” that paints the word, to some, as a ner vous tic which should be trimmed out of all sentences. So while I, like, know why you, like, don’t want the word to be spattered all, like, around someone’s spoken sentences, most people would, like, agree if you had “ums” and “uhs” in their place, there’s no, uh, way it wouldn’t, um, be just as, uh, obnoxious. Most of us aren’t practiced orators, and it is hard to spout So, could you maybe, like, lighten up a little? Wesley Campbell letters@alligator.org

By JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Writer Going into Florida’s matchup against No. 3 North Carolina, coach Amanda O’Leary declared open season on each of the team’s 15 starting spots. Every position was up for grabs, and no number of stats, starts or recruiting stars could save players from dropping down the depth chart before the year began. Sophomore goalkeeper Cara Canington started every game in 2010, helped lead UF to a winning record and had the third-best goalto-save average in the nation among freshman goalies. But as her form slipped in practices heading into the No. 17 Gators’ matchup against the Tar Heels on Saturday, fellow sophomore Mikey Meagher began to shine. Last year’s second-string goalie relegated her to the backup role, and started to compete harder in practice. O’Leary took notice and award“It’s what I was waiting for, for nitely had nerves, but I was also against the best, and it really put me to the test to see what I could handle on this level.” Canington had to watch the season opener from the sidelines for the up 10 goals and made seven saves during Florida’s overtime loss. On a team with as much young that players are either the hunter or the hunted. Nowhere is this better seen than at the competition between goalkeepers. “It’s one of those positions where the hot stick is going to be rewarded,” Canington said. “If you’re seeing the ball better that day, you know, it’s whatever’s best for the team.” Meagher played a little more than 83 minutes of lacrosse last season compared to Canington’s 998 minutes. Even with the substantial who was tabbed in goal against the Tar Heels and on the road tonight at 7:30 against Jacksonville (1-0). “I felt like Mikey played a great game, and she did a really nice job, but again, they’re competing every single day in practice for who O’Leary said. A trip to Jacksonville should do nothing but help Meagher’s rsum in goal. The Gators (0-1) last Gainesville on Oct. 2, where the home team demolished the Dolphins 23-5. Florida’s potent offense, led by sophomore Kitty Cullen, should also help Meagher by keeping possession out of JU’s grasp. Cullen, coming off a four-goal game against UNC, contributed four scores in the October matchup with the Dolphins. 10, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Matt Tripp / Alligator StaffFlorida sophomore goalkeeper Cara Canington started every game in 2010, leading UF to a winning record.

SportsWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org THE SECOND BASEMAN BATTED .224 AS A JUNIOR LAST YEAR.By JESSE SIMONTONAlligator Staff Writerjsimonton@alligator.org For Josh Adams, effort was never the problem. He didn’t hit .224 because he didn’t have the talent. He didn’t lead the team in double plays because he didn’t care. He didn’t drop in the lineup because he wasn’t trying. Adams was thinking too hard. Before Florida’s 2010 campaign, Adams, traditionally a second baseman, established himself as one of the premier players in the Southeastern Conference. secutive seasons, something no Gator had done since Brad Wilkerson accomplished it during the 1997 and 1998 seasons. But last year, something changed. Whether it was the newfound pressure because he was eligible for the draft, or the overbearing responsibility of being a stalwart veteran on a team infused with young talent, Adams struggled. Miserably. Adams, now a senior, said despite the team doing so well last season, he was constantly frustrated at the plate. Mentally, he said, he had no answers. “You go from at-bat to at-bat and strike out one atbat and the next at-bat you’re like, ‘What am I going to do now?’” play last year. While he knocked a career-high nine home runs, he set career lows in RBIs and on-base and slugging percentage. “It’s pretty evident that he didn’t swing the bat as well as he wanted to,” coach Kevin O’Sullivan said.

He attributed his woes to mental mistakes — something he is seeking to correct this year. Adams looks to return to form in senior seasonAfter all the dust has cleared from the countrywide holiday that is National Signing Day, one thing still confuses me. Jacoby Brissett to the Gators? Really? Brissett, the country’s third-best dual-threat quarterback prospect, was down to Miami, Wisconsin and Florida. Yet he chose to come to Gainesville and join Jeff Driskel, the top-rated prostyle quarterback in this year’s class. Not only is that unusual, but in an era of momma’s boys, Brissett chose UF against the wishes of his mother, who wanted him to become a Hurricane. Huh? But this isn’t new — at least not for Florida. The last team to convince two of the top three quarterbacks in a recruiting class to commit to the same school was Florida in 2007, pro-style quarterback, John Brantley, and the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback, Cam Newton. Brissett’s commitment baffling Anthony ChiangChiang Reactionachiang@alligator.org Twitter: @Chiang_Reaction UF WOMEN’S BASKETBALLBy MATT WATTSAlligator Writer A variety of explanations have been offered to justify the Florida women’s basketball team’s struggles this year. First, it was six new players, then youth and inexperience. Then, the team wasn’t tough enough, and it turned the ball over too much. The newest? Chemistry. Junior guard and co-captain Jordan Jones said the best teams have the best chemistry. While it may not be a necessity for success, she does have a point. Players on championship teams like each other, for the most part. They get along and hang out away from the structured routine athletics demand. More importantly, they know each other’s games and know what to expect. Clearly, chemistry is rimental. It can also be the difference in close games, and the Gators know a thing or two about those. They have had 12 games decided by six points or fewer — eight of them losses. Gators point to chemistry as latest reason for down yearButler SEE BASEBALL, P AGE 18 SEE W-HOOPS, P AGE 18 SEE ANTHONY, P AGE 18

18, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 UF hoping team meeting solves latest issueFlorida lost to No. 10 DePaul and No. 19 Kentucky by one and dropped games against No. 15 Florida State and Ole Miss by two-points. No wonder Florida coach Amanda Butler criticized the team’s unity and togetherness after another debilitating defeat by a small margin against Alabama on Sunday. “It’s just about us staying together and always knowing where someone’s going to be — just taking that extra step to be a better team basically,” freshman guard Brittany Shine said. But that’s even tougher for Shine. After playing 39 total minutes and scoring 31 points against Vanderbilt and Ole Miss, Shine played just 22 combined minutes in Florida’s next two losses. The Gators routinely rotate at least 10 of their 12 players each game, and Shine’s minutes have occasionally suffered, but she isn’t quick to complain. Instead, she credits time spent during the sumteam should mesh well together. Jones also said she doesn’t want to use that as excuse for the Gators’ decline, but admitted the team has had trouble with their chemistry in Southeastern Conference play. “At the beginning of the season, that was one of our strengths,” Jones said. “We were playing together. We were doing the little things. We were young, but we were doing things that made up for that. “It’s something that we’re going to get back to,” she continued, adding that chemistry off the court is just as important. Jones said Florida could improve its chemistry with more trips to the movies, or out to eat — as a team. She also said the team had a meeting about the topic, emphasizing maturity and avoiding the drama that can unfold by going behind one another’s backs. The last time the Gators held a team meeting was on the heels of a similar four-game losing streak. They talked about being obsessed, another one of those explanations. They also won their next two games. “We’ve got to be like sisters,” Shine said. “That’s going to help us in the long run.” W-HOOPS, from page 17Saj Guevara / Alligator Florida guard Jordan Jones said the Gators will look to improve their chemistry off the court and addressed the topic in a team meeting. Since then, Brantley has disappointed and Newton won a Heisman while leading Auburn to a national championship. Meyer’s decision to trust Brantley over Newton as Tim Tebow’s successor completely shifted loss season in 2010 and the Tigers won the title. But Meyer had a simpler task when he was posed with the dilemma because Tebow was still in the fold for two more seasons. Will Muschamp doesn’t have that luxury. The new coach will likely be faced with the same scenario, and his initial level of success will depend on his choice. Brantley isn’t exactly Tebow, and one slipup will ignite the whole fan base to call for the freshmen. This means Muschamp will likely make his initial decision between Driskel and Brissett sooner rather than later. Driskel has the advantage right now since he decided to enroll early. But once Brissett arrives in the fall, all bets are off. Don’t get me wrong: It’s a good problem to have for Florida. But it’s only good if Muschamp makes the right choice. If not, the scenario can only lead to regrets. This whole thing feels like one of those game shows where a bunch of women describe themselves to a potential suitor over a microphone while lined up behind a curtain, and the man is posed with the challenge of avoiding the unattractive ones. The man in UF’s situation is clearly Muschamp. But the beautiful girl is still unknown. Only one will stay at Florida, and the odd one out will likely transfer, much like Newton did. However, this time it is on Muschamp to make sure the quarterback who wins a Heisman and a national championship is doing it for the Gators. ANTHONY, from page 17Adams ready for fresh start after inconsistent season“But like most sports, you’re going to go through some rough patches, and you just don’t know when it’s going to happen. It unfortunately hit him last year.” Despite comparisons made between the junior year struggles of Adams and former Gator Matt den ties were largely overblown. While den Dekker’s junior season was his worst, he was still well above Adams’ numbers from a year ago. In 2009, den Dekker nearly hit .300, and his on-base percentage was above .400. Yet, for Adams, his numbers were down across the board. After two seasons of being one of the most consistent Gators to get on base, he had the second worst per centage of any regular last season, only in front of a freshman catcher. But Adams said his issues were not mechanical, merely cerebral. “Everybody has the tools to play the game,” he said. “It’s just whether mentally you can handle it.” in working on the mental part of the game, but said, “It’s something you have to just try and move forward.” “It’s a new year. New things can happen,” he said. “I had a bad junior year, but I can’t dwell on it. Now, I’ve got to move forward. It’s always nice to have a fresh start.” BASEBALL, from page 17 Baseball “It’s just about us staying together and always knowing where someone’s going to be — just taking that extra step to be a better team basically.”Brittany Shine Florida freshman guard

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19Steven H. Keys / AlligatorFlorida senior second baseman Aja Paculba has helped freshmen Kasey Fagan and Cheyenne Coyle deal with the nerves that come as a result of the transition from high school to college. By STEPHEN SHEEHANAlligator Writer As someone who has started more than 200 games at Florida, Aja Paculba knows playing for a big-time program can be nervewracking for a freshman. Paculba, the team’s most experienced player, has opened the season on a tear with a .500 batting average and two home runs. The senior second baseman has also been a steady presence for a startmen in Kasey Fagan and Cheyenne Coyle. “I’m seeing the ball really well,” Paculba said. “The biggest thing is that I’m staying calm in the box and staying positive. And not letting negative things affect me is really helping.” While Paculba and the Gators are looking forward to continuing their undefeated start with their hit the road Wednesday to take on Jacksonville at 6 p.m. Paculba’s ability to contribute in different ways on and off the senior has taken Coyle under her wing and said she is already one of her closest friends on the team. Paculba said developing a close relationship with the freshmen, and letting them know it’s OK to make mistakes or be nervous, is important to overcoming their nerves. That advice has been particularly helpful for Fagan. The 2010 National Gatorade Player of the Year has stepped in as the starter at third base, and although she admits she didn’t have the best performance last weekend, the atmosphere around the team is very positive. “We’ve been rolling through said. “A lot of that has to do with how good we all work together. We love being with each other that has a big impact on how we play.” Adjusting to the college game has been easier than expected for Fagan. While she knew it would be much different than travel ball, the tough opposition has presented Fagan more of a challenge than getting used to her new team. “The higher level of competition is pretty intense,” Fagan said. “But you can feel at ease if you don’t do your best because the rest of the team is way better and they can pick me up.”Paculba serving as mentor to freshmen Fagan, Coyle Sof tball UF SWIMMINGBy MELISSA PENDER Alligator Writer While the Florida women’s swimming team hopes to continue its success this weekend, the men are looking to recover. Divers for the women scored 89 points, allowing the team to enter the swimming portion of the Southeastern Conference Swimming and Diving Championships, held this week in Gainesville, in second place behind No. 3 Auburn. “We’re in a little better position than we thought we’d be in,” Flor ida coach Gregg Troy said. “We’ve got a real good situation and we’re pretty comfortable with what we have to do.” Freshman Elizabeth Beisel will look to build on her excellent freshman season, and junior Shara Stafford, who has been out since the meet against Georgia Tech on Jan. 7, will be returning to the women’s team. Troy said he knows what he has to do with the men, too: catch up. They go into the swimming com petition at a distant third behind No. 8 Tennessee and No. 3 Auburn with 49 points. Troy said the Gators will probably have to take risks with top swimmers like Conor Dwyer and Sebastien Rousseau to narrow the gap. “We have some points to make up,” Troy said. “The guys who’ve meet, we may not swim them in the best spot for them individually. They may have to do some things for the team they wouldn’t normally do.” There will also be some shufthe suspensions handed out to juniors Lily Ramirez and Daniela Victoria as a result of their Feb. 5 arrests in Orlando for shoplifting. Troy said the meet, which begins today at 10 a.m., will feature four top-10 teams for the men and women. “On paper, it looks like Auburn’s favored a little on the men’s side and Georgia on the women’s, but that’s why we have the competition,” he said.
