According to a new survey (but The Daily Mail reported on this so take it with a grain of salt), high powered career women who have stressful jobs may struggle to find love and this is partly because the stress of their jobs is making their bodies decay.

What do Spanx founder Sara Blakely, cosmetics maven Coco Chanel, and cookie queen Debbi Fields have in common? Money and success … and short first names.

Even though we know that humans are just fancy mammals, there are many rituals of human life that we like to assume are particularly ours, and that separate us from other animal species: Conducting funerals, for example, or creating art. Well, it turns out animals do both. And here’s something else: Animals — ants, in particular — have career paths, moving from job to job, and ascending in rank as they go. More

Quotable football coach Vince Lombardi once said that “Leaders aren’t born, they are made.” Turns out he was wrong: For the first time ever, scientists have identified a specific DNA sequence associated with occupying a leadership position. Meet genotype rs4950, the lil’ guy that “appears to be associated with the passing of leadership ability down through generations,” according to the study’s lead author. “The conventional wisdom — that leadership is a skill — remains largely true, but we show it is also, in part, a genetic trait.” More

If you have an unusually large and sweeping signature, you are probably narcissistic and possibly running your company into the ground, according to new research from business professors at the University of Maryland and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The study looked at the size of a chief executive officer’s signature on annual Securities and Exchange Commission filings to measure CEO narcissism.
