ONE-HUNDRED-TWENTY TWO YEARS OF EDITORIAL FREEDOM

Weekly Summer Edition

- By MATT SLOVIN
Daily Sports Editor
An Ontario Hockey League
source told the Daily on Thursday
that Jacob Trouba may not be as
set on coming to Ann Arbor in the
fall as he has stated publicly.
The source, speaking on con-
dition of anonymity, placed the
chances that Trouba, the ninth
pick by Winnipeg in this year's
NHL Entry Draft, honors his
commitment to Michigan at

"50/50."
Trouba's OHL rights belong
to the Kitchener Rangers who
drafted him in the third round of
the OHL's 2010 draft.
. Regardless of where Trouba
ends up, Kitchener or Michigan,
the source says the defenseman
will spend two years before pro-
gressing to the NHL, where he
will be an "elite player."
Prior to last week's NHL Draft,
the source said the odds were
stacked heavily in Kitchener's

favor.
But Trouba's promise that he
will be playing for Michigan this
season makes it a coin flip.
Trouba, skating for the United
States National Team Devel-
opment Program in 2011-12,
recorded the nation's first goal of
the world championships in the
Czech Republic.
In the United States Hockey
League, he skated in 50 games,
scoring nine goals and recording
22 assists.

Miller aims to
lead social media
platform across
nation's universities
By ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily News Editor
Four months after the University
hired Social Media Director Jor-
dan Miller, she's launched what is
thought to be a one-of-a-kind social
media platform among American
universities.
Miller recently launched @
UmichStudents, a Twitter account
that will be hosted by a new Uni-
versity student every week.
With @UmichStudents, Miller
wanted to ensure not only that
the administration's message was
injected into the Twitterverse, but
also that of the University's stu-
dents.
"We exist for our students and
because of our students, and we
need to give our students avoice the
same way that we do (administra-
tors)," Miller said. "You shouldn't
hear only from the administration
- you should hear right from the
students."
Miller said the idea for the
account was hatched from a meet-
ing between Lisa Rudgers, the Uni-

versity's vice president for global
communications and strategic
initiatives; several Twitter execu-
tives including Twitter CEO Dick
Costolo, who is a University alum,
and herself.
Though administrators
expressed no problems with the
idea, Miller said some Twitter
users were concerned that giving
students an open microphone could
lead to image problems for the Uni-
versity, similar to issues the Swed-
ish government had with its similar-
@sweden account.
Miller emphasized that the
account is intended for students to
have the freedom to tweet about
their experiences at Michigan but
acknowledged that it will be moni-
tored for inappropriate or profane
tweets.
"I don't know why we have this
assumption that we're going to put.
them on a pulpit and they're going
to do foolish things," Miller said. "I
think (with) our students, you put
them on a pulpit and they really say
great things."
Miller's inaugural Tweeter on
@UmichStudents was her summer
intern, LSA senior Taylor Davis.
Davis said that it was exciting to
be the first user on the account. She
added that it was empowering to be
able to engage with followers about
the University and echoed Miller's

In a statement issued last
Wednesday, Ora Pescovitz, the
University's executive vice presi-
dent for medical affairs, said the
University's health system must
now "move forward" as it con-
tinues to make health care more
cost-efficient for students.
"We look forward to working
in partnership with the federal
government and local partners
to create a better national health
care system," Pescovitz said.
In theS5-4 rulingbythe Supreme
Court, the majority faction com-
prised Chief Justice John Roberts
Jr. and Justices Ruth Bader Gins-
berg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Soto-

mayor and Elena Kagan.
The ruling upheld the con-
stitutionality of the individual
mandate, "which requires most
Americans to maintain 'minimum
essential' health insurance cover-
age."
The law says that Americans
who do not have health coverage
by 2014 will have to pay a penalty.
A journal entry by Evan Camink-
er, the dean of the University's
law school, was also cited in the
Supreme Court's decision.
Another provision the
Supreme Court ruled on is the
expansion of Medicaid.
