What's So Scary About Smart Girls?

    When terrorists in Nigeria organized a secret attack last month, they didn't target an army barracks, a police department or a drone base. No, Boko Haram militants attacked what is even scarier to a fanatic: a girls' school.

    That's what extremists do. They target educated girls, their worst nightmare.

Where The Girls Are

    This election season is going to be all about women.

    OK, not entirely. Men will be involved on many significant levels, like running the network of oligarchs who take advantage of our weakened campaign finance laws to manipulate the American democratic process in pursuit of their own selfish ends. That's definitely a guy thing.

Now That's Rich

    Institutional Investor's latest "rich list" in its Alpha magazine, its survey of the 25 highest-paid hedge fund managers, is out - and it turns out that these guys make a lot of money. Surprise!

    Why, many are asking, did it take the world so long to pay much attention to the kidnapping of more than 300 schoolgirls by Muslim fanatics in Nigeria?

    Mary Willingham remembers the exact moment when she realized she had to go public. It was at the memorial service in the fall of 2012 for Bill Friday, the former president of the University of North Carolina. During his long career, Friday had championed the amateur ideal - the notion that college athletes needed also to be students, and that academics mattered as much as wins.
