A lot of people have problem losing weight. In the last 33 years, not a single country has made serious progress in the fight against obesity While in 1980, 857 million people worldwide were overweight or obese, by 2013 that number had more than doubled.

According to Western experts, the resumption of the US-Russian dialogue after the contacts on Syria had been frozen could have been easily predicted, although it does not promise any real results due to disagreements between the parties. "I am skeptical on the matter, as the problem lies not in diplomacy but in fundamentally different aspirations of the parties in the negotiations," Michael Kofman, Fellow at the Kennan Institute of the Wilson Center told Nezavisimaya Gazeta. "Russia will not be able to agree to a ceasefire before the opposition in Aleppo falls. This is an informal agreement between the allies (meaning Moscow and official Damascus). The goal of the US in the negotiations is to put a stop to the fighting around Aleppo and to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe. Russia is conducting the dialogue mainly to buy time for the Syrian government forces to let them take Aleppo," he added.
