Donald Trump 'could have lived to 200 years old' if he ate fewer hamburgers, doctor says

Donald Trump 'could have lived to 200 years old' if he ate fewer hamburgers, doctor says Donald Trump has "incredible genes" and could have lived to 200-years-old if his diet had been better in recent years, the White House presidential physician said. Dr Ronny Jackson, who performed Mr Trump's first medical exam as president, declared him "fit for duty" physically and mentally. As well as a thorough physical Dr Jackson performed a "difficult" cognitive test and Mr Trump scored 30 out of 30. The doctor said: "He's very sharp, he's very articulate around me, I've no indication to be concerned about his thought process." Dr Jackson said he had not planned to do a cognitive test but Mr Trump asked him to, and he did "exceedingly well" on it. The doctor said: "If he had some kind of mental cognitive issue he would not have got 30 out of 30 on the test. He has no mental or cognitive issues." Donald Trump Credit: AP He said it was the first time a president had undergone such a test, and Mr Trump asked for it specifically so he could lay to rest recent speculation about his mental capability. In a recent book, Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff, White House aides were said to have questioned his state of mind, and Mr Trump responded by calling himself a "very stable genius". Last month, the president slurred his words while announcing a decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Dr Jackson took responsibility for Mr Trump slurring his words during the speech, saying he had prescribed him Sudafed, a cold remedy, and that had dried up his mouth. Mr Trump's weight was 239 pounds. He had a Body Mass Index at the very top of the "overweight" range and just shy of "obese". Here is the release of President Donald Trump's medical exam by Dr. Ronny Jackson, on paper: https://t.co/kLR436GYM8pic.twitter.com/24zbLYQD0C— Lisa Feierman (@lisathefeierman) January 16, 2018 His resting heart rate was 68 beats per minute, and his blood pressure was 122/74. His total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended, and had risen over the last year. Mr Trump takes a medication for his cholesterol, the doctor said. He also takes Propecia to combat male pattern hair loss. Dr Jackson said Mr Trump "could do with losing 10 or 15 pounds". He added: "We talked a lot about diet and exercise. He was more keen on the diet than exercise but we will do both." The physical part of the four-hour medical exam settled a long mystery over how tall Mr Trump is. He has claimed to be 6ft 3ins, while an old driving licence showed him as 6ft 2ins, leading to accusations he had exaggerated his height. Dr Jackson confirmed Mr Trump is 6ft 3ins. Asked how a 71-year-old man known to like hamburgers could be in "excellent" physical health, he said: "It's called genetics. Some people have great genes. "I told the president if he'd had better diet over the last 20 years he could have lived to 200 years old. The answer is he has incredibly good genes, it's just the way God made him. "He had great findings across the board but his cardiac health stood out. Hands down he is in the excellent range. "He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol."

Nine dead after under-construction bridge collapses in Colombia

Nine dead after under-construction bridge collapses in Colombia At least nine construction workers were killed and five injured when a partially-constructed bridge collapsed in central Colombia on Monday, an official from the disaster response agency said. The bridge, located in Chirajara on the border of Cundinamarca and Meta provinces, was to be part of the highway that connects the capital Bogota and the city of Villavicencio, and was not yet in public use. The cause of the collapse, which sent pieces of the bridge down into a canyon below, is under investigation, Reinaldo Romero, head of disaster response for Meta province, told Reuters. Half of the bridge fell into the valley in Chirajara near Bogot Credit: JAIME SALDARRIAGA/ REUTERS “Up to now there are nine dead and five injured,” Romero said. “We are doing a check to rule out other victims.” Transportation Minister German Cardona flew over the site of the collapse later on Monday and visited rescue staff on the ground with Dimitri Zaninovich, the head of the national infrastructure agency.

"The majority of goodwill originates from investments made 10 years ago or more, and has limited relevance for Ericsson's business going forward," Ericsson said in a statement. Once the world's biggest manufacturer of mobile network gear, Ericsson has been hit by competition from Huawei [HWT.UL] and Nokia , while telecom operator spending has slumped ahead of the roll-out of next-generation 5G technology.

Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane)

Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane) The Blackbird’s design reflected the fact that it was pushing the limits. The SR-71’s J58 engines could only start through use of two vehicle-mounted V8 starter engines, and the triethylborane used in the fuel would belch green flames during ignition. The J58s would switch to a partial ramjet mode at high speeds, such that the SR-71 actually became more fuel efficient when it went faster.

Family laughs off epic Photoshop fail that left them looking like cartoon characters as sceptics cry fake

Family laughs off epic Photoshop fail that left them looking like cartoon characters as sceptics cry fake There have been any number of PhotoShop controversies over the years, from the almost routine retouching of images of models to photojournalists being caught doctoring their war footage. But this must be the most bizarre - if the pictures are to be believed. "Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot," writes Pam and Dave Zaring in a Facebook post.  "Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us...." The finished product must have come as something of a shock. Far from beautiful portraits of her family, the photos came out looking like something from a horror show. The photographer said the shadows caused problems on such a sunny day Credit: Facebook Imagine the plain features of a Sims family... only covered over in paper. The Zarings said the photographer had a ready explanation. "She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos," they wrote. At least they could see the funny side to their family being portrayed as cartoonish figures. "I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!!!!! You can't make this stuff up," they added with a cheery invitation to share the pictures. The photographer said she had never been taught how to retouch images Credit: Facebook The images have now been shared almost 400,000 times, setting off a viral discussion about whether they are fakes or if they might actually be real. Plenty of people expressed scepticism in the comments section with some suggesting it was some kind of marketing ploy. “This is not real,” wrote one. The couple insisted it was true and that they had a long battle to see the finished product. “This is not a joke. This is legitimately the final product I received in the mail yesterday," they wrote. "I passed my furious mark months ago when she wouldn’t send us anything. I was fully prepared to be scammed, money gone, and no final product!" The family's local newspaper, The St Louis Post-Dispatch, said it contacted the photographer involved who declined to discuss the images. The buzz even inspired one photography expert to offer an online tutorial in retouching to get the same effect.

Saudi Ritz Carlton to reopen after being used as luxury prison in corruption purge

Saudi Ritz Carlton to reopen after being used as luxury prison in corruption purge The luxury Riyadh hotel used as a prison during Saudi Arabia's crackdown on corruption will reopen for business next month, suggesting authorities are close to settling the cases of many suspects. Dozens of princes, senior officials and top businessmen were detained and confined in the five-star Ritz-Carlton Riyadh as the government launched the purge in early November. The some 200 detainees occupied half the hotel's 492 rooms. The rest was closed to business. The hotel's website now accepts bookings from Feb. 14, quoting a nightly rate for its cheapest room of 2,439 riyals (£480). Saudi authorities have said they expect the vast majority of suspects to agree to financial settlements of charges against them, and that Riyadh hopes to recover about $100 billion of illicit funds. A small number are expected to be prosecuted. Construction giant Saudi Binladin Group said on Saturday that some of its shareholders might transfer part of their holdings to the state in a settlement with authorities. Chairman Bakr Bin Laden and several family members were detained in the crackdown. In late November, senior Saudi Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, once seen as a leading contender to the throne, was freed after reaching a settlement with authorities that involved paying more than $1 billion, according to a Saudi official. Another top businessman who has been held at the Ritz-Carlton is billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, chairman and owner of global investment firm Kingdom Holding. A Saudi official said this week that he was negotiating a possible settlement but so far had not agreed on terms. It has been rumoured, Mr Talal, one of the world’s richest men, could be forced to pay as much as $7bn. Saudi Arabia is in the midst of a massive political and economic shake-up, marked by the sudden appointment of Prince Mohammed bin Salman as crown prince in June. The 32-year-old son of the king has spearheaded the unprecedented crackdown on corruption among members of the government and royal family, as he consolidates his grip on power in the kingdom.
