A recent Northwestern University study found that what makes a person a good dating partner might not determine who is a suitable spouse.
For couples in both a dating relationship and a marriage, an important contributor to a satisfying relationship is an understanding that a partner will help the other achieve his/her dreams. That’s huge for married couples, too, but in the married relationship, it is even more substantial that the partner upholds his/her part of the commitment pledged before taking vows.
SEATTLE—The highest proportion of overweight and obese people – 13% of the global total – live in the United States, a country which accounts for only 5% of the world’s population, according to a first-of-its-kind analysis of trend data from 188 countries.
An estimated 160 million Americans are either obese or overweight. Nearly three-quarters of American men and more than 60% of women are obese or overweight.

Many Ukrainians are worried about the new U.S. administration because it has promised a different approach to Russia—which invaded and forcibly annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula in 2014 and then initiated and supported a so-called “separatist” movement to also gain control over parts of eastern Ukraine.

But despite assertions from Trump Tower that it was a “landslide victory” for the billionaire, Hillary Clinton beat Trump by nearly 2.9 million votes—a fact that has seemed to weigh heavily on the president-elect. In the weeks since the election, Trump has repeatedly taken to Twitter to downplay and defend his loss of the popular vote, arguing that “millions voted illegally” (they didn’t) and that he would have campaigned differently if the Electoral College didn’t exist.
Foundations: cornerstones, bedrock
Many companies proudly think of themselves as innovative. The great majority of them, however, are adept at producing only sustaining innovations — products or services that meet the demands of existing customers in established markets. Few companies have introduced genuinely disruptive innovations, the kind that result in the creation of entirely new markets and business models. And yet the motivation to pursue such innovations should be urgent. In almost any industry you care to examine, the most dramatic stories of growth and success were launched from a platform of disruptive innovation.1
Laid out: forged, created, established
