Kourtney Kardashian: If You Def Want Scott Disick Back, Then End Justin Bieber Fling

December 14, 2015

Kourtney Kardashian, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you having fun hookups with young hottie Justin Bieber, 21. However, if rekindling love with Scott Disick — even if for the sake of the kids — is on your To Do list at all, then say bye-bye to doing the Biebs.

Your Justin affair could send Scott either off the wagon again or into the arms of a whole bunch of other women. “It may send him into a tailspin, to start ‘using’ [drugs and alcohol] again. He doesn’t do well with emotional pain,” points out psychologist Jeff Gardere, PhD and assistant professor at the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. “On the other hand, it could push him into winning Kourtney back.”

Med students squeezed amid wider competition for rotation space

September 29, 2015

Earlier this year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education would expand into the CUNY School of Medicine and become New York’s newest four-year medical program. It will affiliate with St. Barnabas Health Center in the Bronx, a teaching hospital in one of the poorest and sickest counties in the United States.

The New York school officials argue that paying for clerkships offers foreign schools a competitive advantage. They say that it keeps their students out, and allows for a lower quality student, who was likely rejected by U.S. schools, to attend.

“To match them we’d have to raise our tuition significantly,” said Robert Goldberg, executive dean of the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. “$20,400 per student in their clinical years.”
