Linda Miller | January 13, 2013 | Business

Leigh Weingus | January 13, 2013 | TV

'The Voice' Recap: Trevin's So Good That This Season Should Be Called Off

Jaimie Etkin | January 13, 2013 | TV
Trevin gets some of the nicest and most genuine feedback we'd ever heard. Let's all make sure that Trevin doesn't become a casualty of the show because people feel like they don't need to vote for him because he's such a frontrunner.

Petraeus, Sex and the Aphrodisiac of Power

Professor Ian Robertson | January 13, 2013 | UK Politics
Petraeus's already considerable power expanded when he took over CIA. And power is drug with psycho-active properties, one of the strongest of which is as an increase in sexual appetite. As Henry Kissinger famously observed, "power is an aphrodisiac".

All Aboard? The EU Looks Again at Quotas for Women on Boards

Geraldine Gallacher | January 13, 2013 | UK Lifestyle
Merely sticking to the status quo will achieve little in progressing gender balance in the boardroom. Regulatory nudges have helped, with FTSE 100 boardrooms having risen to around 17% women, but something more forceful will be required to get anywhere near 40%.

The Petraeus Affair: Why Is There No Male Equivalent for 'Mistress'?

Lisa Belkin | January 13, 2013 | Women
Colloquial English language has no word for that -- no label we use to describe the man with whom a married woman cheats. Gigolo doesn't really cover it. Lover, perhaps, but no newspaper account would use it in a situation like this because their goal is to talk about sex without directly mentioning it. Paramour? That just sounds ridiculous.

Sarah Albertson-Corkery | January 13, 2013 | Women

Why Work-Life Balance Is a False Narrative

Dr. Patty Ann Tublin | January 13, 2013 | Healthy Living
In spite of the fact that work-life balance as portrayed in the media has become as elusive as the search for the Holy Grail, women continue to desperately seek it out. Consequently, we are left feeling exhausted and guilty for failure to obtain an unachievable goal!

Carine Fabius | January 13, 2013 | Healthy Living
Even after outgrowing the lure of the bad boy, the syndrome still perplexed me. Why was this self-defeating pattern so prevalent among women? Unsolved mysteries stay with me, and this one was no different.

It's About Time: Marriage Equality, the Gender Gap, RuPaul and the Reelection of President Obama

Janet Mason | January 13, 2013 | Gay Voices
My mother raised me right. I have always looked beyond my own life to have compassion for others. Even considering my own interests, I find that there are reasons to have voted Democratic in this election other than feminism and LGBT equality.

Breaking News: U.S. Now Ranks 79th in World for Women's Political Participation

Soraya Chemaly | January 13, 2013 | Politics
This is The Year of the Woman. Again. As a result of Tuesday's elections, the 113th Congress will include the highest number of women senators ever: 20. Hate to be a killjoy but the truth is that even with this improvement women are still woefully underrepresented in this country.

Crossing The Bridge

Jane Ratcliffe | January 13, 2013 | Fifty
All of us are seeking happiness and trying to avoid suffering. But sometimes our path toward happiness and avoidance of suffering crosses with another person's path toward happiness and avoidance of suffering and there's a disturbance. We take the other person's actions as "anti-us," but really, most of the time, it has nothing to do with us.
