Celebrating 33 years of independence

In our opinion: Lack of state funding
pushes UK away from top-20 goal


I Swimming following in diving team's

path to SEC victory



Cats unbeaten no longer

Four days ago in

Lexington, the No. 3 Kentucky Wildcats got
a wake-up call. Last night in Columbia.

SC. they hit the snooze button.

After surviving a second-half scare Sat-
urday from the basement—dwelling Georgia
Bulldogs. the Cats failed to answer last
night and lost to South Carolina 73-61 in
front of 16.107 fans at The Colonial Center.

The loss was UK's first in Southeastern
Conference play and ended the Cats‘ hopes
of going undefeated in the conference for
the second time in three years. For UK (193.
10-1 SEC). it was also its most lopsided SEC
loss since the second round of the 2002 SEC
Tournament, when South Carolina defeated

the Cats 7057.

Senior forward Chuck Hayes missed all
five of his field goals and managed just one
point. marking Hayes‘ lowest point total
since he went scoreless in UK‘s 2003 NCAA

Tournament loss to Marquette.

“We‘re not much without (Hayes)

that‘s pretty obvious with these games."
said UK head coach Tubby Smith. “He‘s our
heart and soul. When his heart and souls

not right we‘re hurting."

Hayes' one-point performance came af-
ter the co-captain personally addressed his
teammates following Saturday‘s dismal

showing against Georgia.

Hayes called last night “one of the worst
games i‘ve ever played," and said he was
disappointed with the way he and his team-
mates responded after the close win Satur-


“It's obviously very frustrating.“ Hayes
said. “It's obvious that we have some bad
habits we need to fix. They started in the
Georgia game and they carried over to this


The Cats and Gamecocks (14—8. t‘r'i SEC)

Carolina a 21151 halftime lead.

Grant funds professorship
to study women, violence

By Dariush Shala

UK will use a 8500.000
grant to establish an en-
dowed professorship to study
the effects of violence on
women‘s health.

UK‘s Center for Research
on Violence Against Women
will be receiving a grant of
8250.000 from Verizon Wire-
less. the company announced
yesterday. ln addition. the
Kentucky Research (‘hal-
lenge Trust Fund will match
the donation. bringing the to-
tal amount of money going
to the center up to half a mil-
lion dollars.

"The center is truly a na-
tional entity." said Verizon
Wireless spokeswoman
Michelle Gilbert on why the
company chose ifK‘s center
for the donation,

"We know that the contri-
bution we're making to them
will benefit domestic \'l(1~

ience survivors across the
country because the work
that this center does benefits
domestic violence centers na-
tionwide." she said.

The grant money for UK
will help fund a professor-
ship most likely in the Col-
lege of Medicine. Jordan
said. The professor will re
search the short-term and
long-term health effects of
violence against women.

"We believe that this pro
fessorship will put Kentucky

Second district council-

posed yesterday that the ur-

In the council meeting.
Wigginton also proposed
that an authoritative body of
3 to 7 council members res

tions. Vice Mayor Mike
Scanlon would choose the
panel’s members, according
to the proposal. The council
voted to table both motions
11-1 and 9-3, respectively

“I suggest to council that
the time is right and has
come to truly establish a
clear. open. agreed-upon and
authorized process for end-

FDA to fOrm panel to look at drug safety


Food and Drug Administra-
tion will create a new indepen-
dent board to more aggressive
ly monitor the safety of drugs
on the market as part of an ef-
fort to restore public confi—
dence in the nation's prescrip
tion drug supply. Health and
Human Services Secretary
Mike Ieavitt announced yes-

“The public has spoken.
and they want more oversight
and openness." he said to a
gathering of FDA employees.
“They want to know what we
know. what we do with the in-
formation and why we do it."

The Drug Safety Oversight
Board would. for the first time.
take the officials who approve
new drugs largely out of the
process of assessing whether
side effects that appear later
are serious enough to require
quick regulatory action. FDA
reviewers. some have argued.
can be reluctant to withdraw a
drug because it suggests their
initial approval might have
been a mistake.

As another part of its ef-
fort. Lester Crawford. FI)A act-
ing commissioner. said the
agency a known for its refusal
to discuss issues before they
are fully resolved . will be far
more proactive in providing
information to the public. He
said the FDA will release safe
ty information even if it is not
complete or if the release dis-

pleases drug companies.

“There are legal restric-
tions on releasing confidential
and commercial information;
however. that is not something
the FDA should hide behind.“
said Crawford. who was nomi-
nated Monday to become FDA
commissioner. “I think we
need to adopt the mentality
that the public wants to know
and the public needs to know.
and we should find reasons to
make information available.
rather than simply saying we
can't reveal trade secrets
”closed case.”

Some members of Con-
gress. consumer advocates and
FDA staff members ques-
tioned whether the new safety
reviews would be meaningful.
But if so. the two initiatives to
gether would constitute a ma-
jor shift in emphasis for an
agency that has been accused
in recent years of paying too
little attention to drug risks
and focusing instead on speed-
ing new products to market.

David Graham. the FDA
safety officer whose whistle-
blowing brought the issue of
unsafe drugs to prominence.
said that he did not think a
new board would do much

“It‘s an important admis-
sion at the highest levels that
the FDA hasn‘t handled drug
safety up to now. but it won‘t
address the root causes of the
problem." he said. “Until drug
safety becomes as important
as approving drugs quickly. the
fundamental problem will re-

main and unsafe drugs will
continue to be approved and
will stay on the market."

The FDA announcement
came the day before the
agency begins a high-profile
three-day conference that will
examine safety risks associat-
ed with the now-controversial
class of arthritis drugs called
COXQ inhibitors. The FDA
and the drug industry have
been on the defensive since
Merck & Co. took its block-
buster arthritis painkiller
Viorcx' off the market in Sep
tember because of evidence
that it increased the risk of
heart attack and stroke. and
Pfizer Inc. stopped advertising
its similar (‘elehrex and Rex-
tra products after receiving
hints of similar problems two
months later.

The FDA expert panel
could recommend that all
C()X~2 drugs be withdrawn
from the market or carry a
stern “black box“ warning of
the risks. or it could vote to
recommend no change in cur-
rent regulations.

In advance of the confer-
ence. the New England Jour-
nal of Medicine released two
editorials and three studies
yesterday assessing the COX‘Z
drugs and FDA‘s performance.
The studies generally conclud-
ed that the entire class of
drugs increases the risk of car—
diovascular disease. The edito
rials took the agency and in-
dustry to task for not adequate
1y protecting the public.

Kyoto pact goes into effect

By “M Milo

us mu: m
Nearly eight years after it
was negotiated. the Kyoto Pro
tocol to curtail greenhouse
gases in order to combat global
warming goes into effect today
without the participation of
the country that produces

roughly a fourth of the world's
heat-trapping exhaust: the
United States.

A total of 140 countries
have ratified the pact, the first
major international effort to
reduce the industrial green-
house gas emissions that
many scientists believe to be
responsible for increased glob
al temperatures over the past

But under the terms of the
Kyoto treaty, only developed
nations will have to cut green-
house gases. Thirty-five have
agreed to lower them to 5 per-
cent below 1990 levels by 2012.

Critics of the treaty, includ-
ing US. officials, have argued
that it places the developed
world at a competitive disad-
vantage. Emerging economic
giants such as China are ex-
panding energy use but are
not required under the pact to
reduce greenhouse gas emis-

United Nations officials
and numerous heads of state
praised the treaty’s formal
launch as a longcverdue start-
ing point.

“We have been waiting so
long for the start of the Kyoto
Protocol, there is a sense this
is historic," Joke Waller-
Hunter, the executive secre
tary of the UN. Framework
Conference on Climate
Change, said in an interview
from Kyoto, where diplomats
were gathering to commemo
rate the treaty. “We all know it
is only a first step. But you
don’t start walking without a
first step.“

For the treaty to take effect.
nations responsible for at least

55 percent of global green-
house gas production had to
ratify it. That requirement
was finally met last year when
Russia agreed to cut its emis—

However, the consensus of
even the strongest Kyoto sup
porters is that the pact alone
will barely make a dent in the
global warming problem A es-
pecially without the United
States. which along with Aus-
tralia is the only large devel-
oped nation not taking part.

Worldwide emissions of
carbon dioxide and other
greenhouse gases, mainly re
leased during the burning of
fossil fuels such as coal and oil.
are still expected to increase
despite Kyoto due to the grow-
ing output of developing na-
tions such as China and
