By LIANA ROSENBLOOM
Daily StaffReporter
Since President Barack
Obama's re-election re-affirmed
that the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act will be
implemented, many health care
providers are struggling with the
law's more practical realities.
It is estimated that an addi-
tional 30 million Americans will
become eligible to receive health
insurance by 2014. In light of the
health care profession's current
shortage of providers, advanced
practice registered nurses in
Michigan are working to pass leg-
islation to expand their practicing
rights.

Study: 6,382
students studying
abroad at the 'U'
By FARONE RASHEED
For theDaily
Students hailing from sev-
eral foreign countries have
helped place the University ina
new group of "Big Ten" schools
- the top 10 schools with the
largest international student
enrollment.
The University was ranked
eighth largest international
student body in the United
States - with a reported 6,382
international students as of
2012 - in the 2011-2012 Open
Doors Report released by the
Institute of International Edu-
cation this week,
Kavita Mokha, tIE manager
of public affairs; said Open
Doors - a publication funded
by the Bureau of Educational
and Cultural Affairs of the U.S.
Department of.State - aggre-
gates institutional data from
across the nation for a greater
understanding of the flux of
international students on U.S.
campuses.
Mokha said approximately
3,000 American institutions

self-report their numbers each
year to the IIE.
The Open Doors data
includes students who have
graduated from the University
but are still on a student visa,
which makes the data vary
slightly from the numbers the
University publishes on its
International Center website,
which report only 'currently
enrolled students, according to
John Greisberger, the director
of theUniversity's Internation-
al Center.
Greisberger said there were
"no surprises," referring to
the University's eighth place
finish in the category for the
second year in a row. Last year,
the University had 5,995 total
international students accord-
ing to 2010-2011 lIE data.
Greisberger said a diverse
and global education has
always been emphasized and
implemented at the University,
addingthat about 40 to 50 per-
cent of American students at
the University participate in
study abroad programs or some
type of academic experience
abroad. Greisberger said rela-
.tionships with international
students on campus encour-
age American students to go
abroad.

R.U.B. BBQ to
feature local beer,
home-style meals
By ALICIA ADAMCZYK
Daily Staff Reporter
Tailgating for the 2013 season
just got a little saucier with the
addition of R.U.B. BBQ Pub to
the South Campus diningscene.
The R.U.B. BBQ Pub, a Michi-
gan family-owned, sports-style

pub founded 40 years ago in
Detroit and Warren, will open
its third locationwithin the next
30 to 60 days on the corner of
South State Street and Packard
Avenue in the space formerly
occupied by the Packard Pub.
Customers will be able to
wash the Southern-inspired,
home-style meals down with
one of more than 200 varieties of
bottled beer, or 60 beers on tap,
many of which were produced in
Michigan.The smokehouse will
also offer tailgating packages

and draft beer to-go.
Omar Mitchell, the smoke-
house's regional manager, said
opening a restaurant in Ann
Arbor is almost obligatory given
its reputation as a "restaurant
capital" throughout the state.
"As crazy as it may sound,
Ann Arbor is missing great bar-
becue," Mitchell said. "They
have many different styles of
cuisine, but good old Southern
comfort barbecue is missing."
Mitchell emphasized R.U.B's
