A new study finds that 60% of teenage girls are obese by the time they reach 16. Research indicates that the waist of an average teen girl has expanded by five inches in the past two decades. In fact, by the time they reach 15-16, approximately 25% of the girls exceed adult cut-off points for overweight (about 31 inches). The study points out that traditionally, obesity is judged by a person's BMI, which in the past suggested a leveling off of teenage obesity. However, BMI doesn't take into account the mid-section fat accumulation, the most dangerous place to carry fat.

While reading a post about a bagel store shutting down, 53-year-old Michael Goodman happened to spot a familiar name: Claude Soffel. Goodman had remembered the name since the late 1970s, when he mugged Soffel on the steps of New York's Natural History museum, demanding his bus pass. Goodman, then a minor, was immediately arrested by undercover police officers. He was "trying to look like a tough guy" in front of a friend who didn't believe he was in a gang, he wrote in his message to Soffel on Facebook. "Finally I can say—I'M VERY SORRY." Soffell, now 52 and a life coach, accepted his apology and added, "Interestingly, I have dedicated a large portion of my life to helping other men be the man they have always wanted to be, and moments like this one continue to fuel my faith that the battle may be uphill but so rewarding."
