      his diet and be active. Believe me, he will feel it one day if he doesn't change his habits working/dietary habits.

      Graduate school has the tendency to throw you in a tunnel.  All you do is thinking about your comps, then your dissertation, about your research design, the collection of data and then its analysis, the writing of grants, the publication of few articles and so on and so forth. And that gives you a tunnel vision fixated on finishing and you tend to forget everything else.

      I experienced that myself and i saw it in my students. However, it is unhealthy. I wish i knew then what i know now and i did not put my body through that abuse.

      Don't give a damn a/t each & every politician currently alive in the US. Last time i voted for the top part of the ballot was 1972. Never missed SB election
