Happy Father's Day, Mr. Mom

Jeff Rose-Martland | Posted August 16, 2012

Don't let popular myths sway you. Your child doesn't care if you are male or female, so long as you are there to provide food and comfort and protection. Everything else is just learning and, believe me guys, women don't have some secret users-manual for children. Just like us, women start off in the dark and learn as they go, on their own and from family and friends.

The Week That Was: Dad, Thanks For Not Embarrassing Us

Danielle Crittenden | Posted August 16, 2012

My husband each year asserts that not only is Father's Day a holiday entirely made up by the Hallmark people to sell cards and other guilt-induced impulse merchandise -- it's gender-equality gone wild.

Hannah Brown | Posted August 16, 2012

While the dads are being celebrated, give the single moms in your life copies of the Toy Story DVDs. These films feature a single-parent household headed by a mother, and while everyone carries on, Woody is driven by a fear of abandonment.

Has ITV1's Adrian Chiles Struck a Blow for Honesty?

Mike Ward | Posted August 16, 2012

Stupidly, I hadn't remembered to Sky-plus the game. And I didn't have my notebook with me to jot down presenter Adrian Chiles' actual words verbatim. But he definitely said it, I swear he did.

William Bradley | Posted August 16, 2012

There is no shortage of political divides in this era of angry politics. But one of the most fundamental of all is between those who favor the Enlightenment and those who oppose it.

My Reddened Rib Eye with Pimiento Cheese is the perfect steak for Father's Day. The magical rub, made from sweet paprika, smoked paprika and sumac, make a ruddy crust that lights up your taste buds with sweet, sour, salty, smokey notes.

Paul Simon's Graceland Turns 25 -- Part Four: A Track by Track Review

Michael Giltz | Posted October 20, 2012

It's not often pop music can acknowledge the uncertainty of life without succumbing to dread or pomposity. Simon slips in the needle when we're not looking, giving us the comfort of the music even as he details exactly how scared we truly are.

The Week That Was: Relative Ambition

Carla Buzasi | Posted August 16, 2012

If Girls' Day School Trust CEO Helen Fraser has her way, rather than poster clipping and desk stencilling, what today's young girls will be doing during break-time will be plotting marriage strategies instead. Speaking at the annual GDST conference, Helen said women in the workplace are being stopped in their tracks by the "nappy wall" and it was important that girls were encouraged to find ambitious husbands in the same way they are encouraged to apply to good universities.

The Unmotivated Electorate

Michael Radou Moussou | Posted August 16, 2012

The general election of June 17 is like no other election in the history of our country, and no candidate seems to be addressing the one ingredient that could make a great difference: the sense of honor deeply engrained in every Greek.

Three Big Questions for the Greek Elections

Mohamed A. El-Erian | Posted August 16, 2012

Whichever way you look at it, Sunday's election in Greece entails major uncertainties. What is clear is that, by itself, the outcome is very unlikely to immediately end turmoil and uncertainty. Indeed, even a simplified analysis entails many permutations and combinations.

In our interviews with over 1,200 of the oldest Americans in the Legacy Project, we asked them in detail for their advice about parenting.

When You Follow Your Passion, Everything Gets Better

Georgia Middleman | Posted August 16, 2012

I once met a man who said he wanted desperately to be a songwriter but "unfortunately, I have a family in Oklahoma to support so it is NEVER going to happen." He said it with such bitterness that I felt so sad for that family. Don't people know that if there's something you want to do with your life, there's no reason you can't find a way to do it on some level?

Fathers. Fathers are complicated. Their role in society is just as laden with stereotypes and expectations as mothers. Which can make Father's Day a lot more awkward than Mother's Day.

A Bridge Tea Partiers Should Throw Themselves Off

David Frum | Posted August 16, 2012

It's just a toll booth on a bridge -- but it symbolizes the challenges to Canadians of living next-door to an increasingly dysfunctional American political system: The Ambassador Bridge over the Detroit River is the busiest Canada-U.S. border crossing, and shippers fear that the bridge's capacity will soon be overwhelmed. Unfortunately, The existing Ambassador bridge is privately owned, and the main owner -- Forbes 400 member Manuel Maroun -- does not welcome competition.

Lara Croft's 'Tomb Raider' Reboot Origin Story Misses The Mark

Emma Gray | Posted August 16, 2012

The (virtual) woman is a brilliant archaeologist, she can jump into hand-to-hand combat matches with the best of them, she carries her gun in a garter holster and Angelina Jolie played her in a movie. In my opinion, the girl doesn't really need any help from anyone. Apparently, the heads behind "Tomb Raider" -- the video game -- beg to differ.

La segunda, que lo logrado hasta ahora se debe también al trabajo de aquellos dreamers que por alguna razón ya no sueñan más.

Why do men generally avoid reading parenting blogs? Men may not find a parenting blog written by a woman to be of continuing interest (due to content and topics), but there are blogs written on parenting by men. Which further begs the question, in light of the fact that there are male-authored parenting blogs, why are there not more men reading parenting blogs written by men?
