Career women and marriage and more

Kevin Anderson | 11:18 UK time, Thursday, 31 August 2006

We've been asking you over the last few days how well careers and marriage mix? Are men who marry women who don't have a career happier?

We're asking this question because of the huge uproar over an article in the US business magazine Forbes. Anu wrote about the debate on the internet a couple of days agao.

This is just one thing that caught our eyes today. Read on for more.

Other stories that we noticed today is the plan in California to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger agreed to the plan with Democrats in the US legislature. One leading US scientist says that it's too little, too late.

Also, Iran faces a deadline to stop its uranium enrichment plans or face sanctions. It doesn't look likely that Iran will agree to the stop on its enrichment. What will the international community do now?

Also, this story caught my eye this morning. The Nobel-prize winning Egyptian author Naguib Mahfouz died yesterday at the age of 94. I have to say that I've been looking for new books to read, and after getting through Philip K Dick's A Scanner Darkly after seeing the film, I might just have to go out and buy some of Mahfouz's books.
