Nip it in the STEM

By STEM, I mean Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

The flow of new international students entering U.S. university graduate programs shrank last year and continued the decline... This is being called "the Trump effect."

The Trump administration’s efforts to ban travelers from Muslim countries and inflammatory rhetoric about minorities is deterring international students!

And those seats ARE NOT BEING FILLED by recent american college graduates. And these Grad students drive research. They may find an easy cure for obesity. Oh well.

The White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, outlined Trump’s health issues Tuesday following Trump’s first physical last Friday.

He was told to lose 10 to 15 pounds.

Trump has a body mass index of 29.9 — which makes him just shy of falling into the “obese” category. (29.9 is shaving points)

That is based somewhat on how tall you are. Trump is 6'1", claims to be 6'2", and this BMI was based on a 6'3" tall trump.

Jeb Bush is 6'3" tall.

Obama is 6'1" tall.

Dr. Jackson said that both diet and exercise were necessary to restore Trumps healthy weight.

Trump, a 'world class narcissist,' likes to fat-shame others.

The doctor was getting a nutrition specialist to meet with the White House chefs, “to cut the calories, fats, and carbohydrates…”

In terms of exercise, Jackson said Trump needs to use a variety of machines — such as a stationary bike, elliptical, and treadmill — to get his cardio numbers into the normal range.

Trump takes medication for cholesterol, male-pattern hair loss, cardiac health and rosacea.

Trump takes 1 milligram of Propecia daily for the prevention of male pattern hair loss, Jackson said, confirming earlier reports citing Trump’s longtime physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein.

The president takes 10 milligrams of Crestor, which helps lower LDL cholesterol, as well as 81 milligrams of aspirin to help curb the risk of heart attack. "CRESTOR dose range: 5 mg–40 mg once daily; the usual starting dose is 5 mg once daily."

Jackson said he decided to raise Trump’s dosage of the cholesterol medicine after Friday’s exam.

Healthy? Right! Trump is a waddling heart-attack on the hoof!
