Obesity rate per USA states

http://www.stateofobesity.org/adult-obesity/

Updated September 1, 2016: According to the most recent data, adult obesity rates now exceed 35 percent in four states, 30 percent in 25 states and are above 20 percent in all states.

Louisiana has the highest adult obesity rate at 36.2 percent and Colorado has the lowest at 20.2 percent.

U.S. adult obesity rates decreased in four states (Minnesota, Montana, New York and Ohio), increased in two (Kansas and Kentucky) and remained stable in the rest, between 2014 and 2015.

This marks the first time in the past decade that any states have experienced decreases — aside from a decline in Washington, D.C. in 2010.

10 States with high property taxes and an 18-yr old essay about the movie, Selma

I will be working outside the country to be able to afford bay area homes. My 18-yr old daughter Esther is ok with it. She said “Mom, you need an affordable place for you and me.  I will be busy with school and my art”.

In her essay about Selma and Dr King, Esther wrote:

Current social struggles can also be related to from this film, Selma, such as women’s rights, socioeconomic struggles and gay rights. People are seeing things that are unjust. The film, Selma, is able to look back at the past struggles which can shed light on the current social struggles. Was the movie , Selma , just there to distract you or remind you of what the real world is?
