Friday Assorted Links

1. Why are more American teenagers than ever suffering from severe anxiety?

“Anxiety is the most common mental-health disorder in the United States, affecting nearly one-third of both adolescents and adults, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. But unlike depression, with which it routinely occurs, anxiety is often seen as a less serious problem.”

2. Eatonville middle schoolers take their physical education outdoors.

“Mr. McWilliams taught the class teambuilding, orienteering, and the ten essentials.”

Where was Mr. McWilliams at Lexington Junior High? When I head into the backcountry, I usually have two or three essentials.

3. One of the first Ironwomen in history returns to the race that made her famous.     Julie Moss. Badass.

4. America’s largest pumpkins—from the Specific Northwest.

5. Jodi Kantor on how Megan Twohey and she broke the Harvey Weinstein story wide open. Damn, let’s turn that investigative reporting genius on the White House
