Why Do I Sweat So Much?
For SELF, by Amy Marturana.   I will never be a woman who can spend a full hour working out hard in the morning, and then after, spritz some dry shampoo on her hair and saunter off to the office looking presentable. The problem isn’t my hair — it’s straight and easy to manage, which I am grateful for. It’s the sweat. After any workout, it looks like I just dunked my head under a shower. Why do I sweat so much? I ask myself this question on a near-daily basis. Every time I’m working out with other people, I notice that they do not suffer from the same level of sweatiness as I do. It&rsquo...

A happy return: Catching up with Eva
It’s about 2,400 miles from Salt Lake City to Boston. But it’s a distance Jennifer and Vincent Ramirez are more than happy to travel to get care for their daughter Eva. The family first traveled to Boston Children’s Hospital in January of 2016 for surgery to remove Eva’s encephalocele — a surgery her doctors in Utah had said wasn’t possible.
