Emily Roberts: Good parenting isn’t sexist
“He’s a very hands-on dad,” observed a middle aged woman in a pub where we were having dinner, “It’s so lovely to see.” We smiled politely as she cooed over our son and my husband, who had picked up four-week-old Freddie to comfort his crying as I tucked into my food. But really I should have corrected her – my husband is not a ‘hands-on dad’ at all. He’s just a dad. I hate the expression. It implies firstly that for a man to
 
 
Mark Dearn: TTIP trade deal with Trump will endanger NHS
With Theresa May indicating that Britain’s future lies outside the EU single market and Donald Trump signalling his desire for a quick US-UK trade deal, the likelihood of a future deal with America has shot up the agenda. But, in line with Barack Obama’s warning, the “back of the queue” may be the best place when it comes to a deal with Trump’s America.

Satyajit Das: Why people believe the WEF is out of touch

The attendees fly in, many in private jets leading to competition for landing spots. Located in the German-speaking eastern part of Switzerland, Davos was the setting of Thomas Mann’s The Magic
   
Ben Chu: How to spot health scare stories
What makes a good health scare? Three essential ingredients. First, there has to be something mundane that lots of ordinary people do, and preferably enjoy doing. Second, there has to be a nasty disease, or a frightening health condition. Third, the word “causes” must appear. A big scare last week concerned Nutella, with reports that the processed palm oil used in the production of the hazelnut spread might be carcinogenic.
 
 
Veronica Chambers: Michelle Obama’s lessons about composing a life
One of the books that I remember most vividly from my college years was Mary Catherine Bateson’s “Composing a Life.” Bateson, the daughter of legendary anthropologists Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, posited in her book that life is “an improvisational art at every age.” I thought of Bateson’s book a lot as I spent the last year compiling a collection of essays about the legacy of our most recent first lady. Because at the
