Serena Williams recently opened up about her struggle with postpartum disorder. While the disorder is quite common among mothers, not many undergo proper treatment for the same.

It's summer, and in Germany, people are cooking out at the grill. Grocery stores and supermarkets are well aware of this and have filled the shelves with vast amounts of meat. Shoppers can find piles of meat marinated, sliced, skewered and pressed into sausages, and they can find the meat at low prices. This week, a 500-gram (1.1-pound) rib-eye steak — advertised as "the best steak for connoisseurs" — cost €7 ($7.85) at discount store Aldi. Pork sausages cost €3.73 per kilogram. The same amount of mixed ground pork and beef costs less than €4. And consumers don't even need to clip a coupon because in Germany nearly all supermarkets stock meat at similarly low prices.

If something is bothering Morgan Lake, she'll have no hesitation about saying so. It’s not that the young British high jumper is confrontational - far from it - it’s just that she is determined to use her profile to send a positive message. A quick glance at her social media presence illustrates that this is someone who refuses to simply trot out sponsor-approved platitudes.
