Today 19:05 GMT

PRINCE WILLIAM'S ADVICE ON WHIRLWIND MEGHAN MARKLE ROMANCE 'JUST RILED' PRINCE HARRY, SAYS ROYAL EXPERT. Let’s just pause for a second because this is Harry we are talking about, the Party Prince who carved a well-worn path to every Mayfair and Chelsea nightclub for nearly 15 years in between boozily partying everywhere from the Arctic Circle to Sydney pubs.

How parenthood foils STEM careers — and not just for women

Today 08:59 GMT

“These findings point to the importance of cultural shifts within STEM to value the contributions of STEM professionals with children and the need for creative organizational solutions to help these skilled STEM professionals navigate new caregiving responsibilities alongside their STEM work,” Cech said in a statement.

“The difficulty that these professionals may face in balancing caregiving responsibilities with full-time STEM employment suggests that this issue is a concern for the STEM workforce broadly and not just for the retention of women,” they wrote. “Thus, scholarly and policy literature framing child-rearing responsibilities as solely a women’s problem is short-sighted.”

He was a bully, but we’ll miss Karl Lagerfeld’s brilliance

Today 19:05 GMT

As a feminist who loves clothes, and thinks they’re important – as someone once said, they are the furniture of the mind made visible and, on occasion, the very mirror of an epoch’s soul – I see it from both sides: the brilliance at the drawing board, and the bully who didn’t like to see his female employees in flat shoes.

When the death of the designer Karl Lagerfeld from cancer was announced on Tuesday, I thought of Vreeland, his only real rival in fashion when it comes to wit (not that there’s much competition).
