The list of reasons more women don't hold top jobs in corporate America is long and complex: Long-ingrained gender stereotypes. Work cultures that value face time over results. A lack of women in the boardroom. A leaky pipeline that does little to retain women in the jobs necessary to get the top roles.
The National Football League has confirmed that Justin Timberlake will perform at Super Bowl LII in February, marking his first return to that closely watched stage since he infamously exposed Janet Jackson's breast during a performance at the 2004 Super Bowl. It's been more than a decade since that incident, which became known as "nipplegate," but that doesn't mean that Timberlake's forthcoming performance isn't controversial. We've put together a list of answers to questions you might have about what actually happened. Q: What actually happened?
Abby Delaney can roll onto her stomach, hold up her head and turn pages in her favorite books. Her sister, Erin, can now sit up on her own, and she is starting to think about crawling - learning to hold herself up on her small hands and knees. More than four months after the formerly conjoined twins were separated in a rare surgery at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, their mother said there have been rewarding but "terrifying" moments as the 15-month-olds recover.
A government advisory group has been holding confidential meetings to shape U.S. policy on drones, deliberating privately about who should regulate a burgeoning industry that will affect everything from package delivery to personal privacy. The federal group includes industry insiders with a financial stake in the outcome and is co-chaired by a lobbyist for DJI, a Chinese drone maker that dominates the U.S. market. In January, the Federal Aviation Administration asked the group to figure out what influence state and local governments should have over drones in their communities.
Megyn Kelly waded back into territory she vowed to leave behind on Monday, saying on her new NBC morning program that she complained about Bill O'Reilly while she was an anchor at Fox News but was ignored. In an extraordinary monologue, Kelly went after O'Reilly, her former bosses and colleagues, accusing the network of fostering a toxic culture for its female employees. "O'Reilly's suggestion that no one ever complained about his behavior is false," Kelly said during "Megyn Kelly Today." "I know because I complained."
A pair of pit bulls attacked and killed a 7-year-old boy in Lowell, Massachusetts. A preliminary investigation suggested the unidentified boy entered a fenced area containing the two pit bulls, which then attacked him, the Middlesex district attorney's office said in a statement to several local media outlets. Neighbors witnessed the attack at around 6 p.m. Saturday evening and frantically began calling police. "I heard someone yelling, 'It's my baby! It's my baby!' and I come to find out that it was my daughter's friend's son," neighbor Annmarie Dizazzo told WFXT.
KABUL, Afghanistan - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan on Monday, Oct. 23, to pledge U.S. support to its government after a week of Taliban attacks that killed more than 200 people.

Nineteen days after her husband's death and two days after his wrenching burial, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson said she has "nothing to say" to President Donald Trump, whose condolence call pulled the grieving widow into the center of a national controversy.

President Donald Trump said there will not be changes to tax-deferred retirement savings plans under his proposed tax plan, shooting down reports that House Republicans were considering tweaking or capping one of the most popular breaks. "There will be NO change to your 401(k)," Trump said Monday on Twitter. "This has always been a great and popular middle class tax break that works, and it stays!"
Each month, 72-year-old Sandra Bursch withdraws $4,200 from her retirement savings to cover her bills. A chunk of it goes toward paying college bills - for her grandson Gage. She anticipates doing the same for Gage's younger brother, Mason, when he graduates from high school in another year. Every stitch of their clothing, all their meals and day-to-day expenses have been her responsibility since 2003, when drug use by her daughter and son-in-law prompted the police to remove the children from their home.
