BEHIND every successful woman on television, there's a man (or two) causing her headaches. Or so it seems this season, in which fictional women are getting ahead - running law firms, embassies, record companies, even the country itself - while the men in their lives flounder. Or worse. Worse would be Dennis Boyd (Mark Moses), the professor husband of Martha Boyd (Laila Robins) on Showtime's "Homeland. " He committed treason on his wife's watch as ambassador to Pakistan, leading to a bloody attack on the U.S. embassy.

If someone had a chance to ask Bill Gates one question in all the world, what would it be? Dafni Pratt, 16, a junior at Carver High School for Engineering and Science, got that chance during a video chat Wednesday at her school. With 30 other students looking on, Pratt asked the country's richest man, who led in putting computers into the hands of everyday folks, about the lack of women in computer science. "Studies show that the percentage of women majoring in computer science has been falling since 1986," the teen from Southwest Philadelphia said.

ONCE IN a great while, too many cooks in the kitchen is a good thing. Earlier this month, a gaggle of South Philly chefs showed up, knives in hand, to work in the line at Lynn Rinaldi's modern Italian restaurant and wine bar, Paradiso. And, though their culinary styles and cooking proclivities pinged multiple points on the map, they shared a straightforward goal: satisfying a sold-out room full of diners celebrating Rinaldi's 10th year in business on East Passyunk Avenue. The menu of 10 distinct dishes (a course for each year, of course)

For just the second time in school history, the Penn women's basketball team beat St. Joseph's. A dominant second half led to a 65-51 victory over the Hawks at the Palestra on Tuesday night. The Quakers (4-3, 2-0 Big Five) are the only unbeaten team in the Big Five and need just one win in their two remaining Big Five games (vs. Temple Jan. 5 and Villanova Jan. 21) to claim their first title. Center Sydney Stipanovich led Penn with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Ashley Robinson (Archbishop Wood)

I REALLY HAD NO intention of writing about this ever again. I'd said most of what I needed to say in print, on Facebook, on the radio and on television, and was getting tired of going around in circles about the phrase "statute of limitations. " There were other things to think about during my birthday week, like how many Starbucks gift cards I was likely to get and whether actually asking for a bottle of Sambuca with a bow on it was declasse. But then, someone said something that, like a red flag in the face of a bespectacled 5-foot-1-inch bull, made the steam flow.

  EVERY DAY, it seems, there is a new sexual-assault allegation against Bill Cosby. Women who first accused him years ago, and whose stories are getting a new hearing, are being joined by others only now coming forward. While the famous 77-year-old actor and comedian remains silent and his career totters on the brink of collapse, the scandal raises many uncomfortable questions about justice and the court of public opinion - questions made even more difficult by the dynamics of race, gender and politics.

Laura Owen concedes she didn't always believe she could make an impact. But at a time when the Bucks County native lacked confidence in herself, her professors at Delaware Valley College showed her she could make a difference. Thirty-five years after graduating, Owen, 57, now president and CEO of the networking company Ponscio, was selected by the U.S. State Department to speak to an international audience at the annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit, which brings together leaders from around the world to discuss the impact of technology on entrepreneurship.

At a time when most foreign news is unremittingly grim, I have a good-news story to tell - about the first women-only restaurant in western Afghanistan, called the Scranton Restaurant. That name reflects the fact that the restaurant is a joint project of a noted woman activist in Herat, Afghanistan, and her counterparts in Scranton, Pa., who raised $20,000 to get the restaurant started. The Scranton Restaurant is a rare place where Afghan women, young and old, can socialize outside their homes in safety.

Q: I AM ONCE again a single man (age 64) . . . and I am new to the dating scene. I have been quite surprised by the expectations of the women I have dated in the past couple months. I'm thinking that when a man pays for a date, it is a gift, not an obligation. These women not only expected the man to always pay for everything, they made it quite clear that it was an entitlement for them. Dating can be very expensive these days. When is it appropriate for dating expenses to be shared, and what would be the best way to openly discuss this subject with a partner?
