Bad wedding toasts are a nightmare: How to give a speech that will impress everyone

The bad wedding speech is a movie trope for a reason: It’s easy to love someone very much and yet hard to express that concisely, in a way that is relevant to a wide audience, and without getting caught up in the speaker’s own emotional baggage. “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” “Wedding Crashers” and “Bridesmaids,” among others, all feature versions of wedding or engagement speeches gone horribly wrong.

Self-Care: Body

More people are obese now than ever before. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 39.6 percent of adults and 18.5 percent of children were considered obese in 2015-16, which is the most recent year that figures are available. It’s the highest percentage ever documented by the survey.
