Father's Day, whenever it is celebrated around the world, is an opportunity to recognize fathers for their contributions to their families and to society. Each country sets its own dates for Father's Day and has some of its own traditions around the opportunity to show love to Dad at home and in the community.
Traditions vary for Father's Day celebrations around the world, according to a Time magazine article in 2015. For example, some countries link Father's Day to the Feast of St. Joseph, which celebrates Joseph of Nazareth, father of Jesus, which is on March 19. In Germany, Father's Day is celebrated by men loading wagons with beer and heading off into the woods. In Russia, Father's Day overlaps with their Defender of the Fatherland Day. So, while fathers are honored, many of them march in military parades in their home towns on the same day.
Father's Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and in most other countries on the third Sunday in June each year. READ MORE...

Yes, we all know it’s the right thing to do. But Michael Kimmel makes the surprising, funny, practical case for treating men and women equally in the workplace and at home. It’s not a zero-sum game, but a win-win that will result in more opportunity and more happiness for everybody.
There's no denying the ticking of a woman's biological clock - but men are not immune, either. French doctors have found that the quality of sperm starts to deteriorate by 35, so that by the time a man is 45 a third of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Here, with the help of leading clinicians, Angela Epstein identifies the ages when different parts of the body start to lose their battle with time.
Starts ageing at 20
As we get older, the number of nerve cells - or neurons - in the brain decrease. We start with around 100 billion, but in our 20s this number starts to decline.
By 40, we could be losing up to 10,000 per day, affecting memory, co-ordination and brain function.
In fact, while the neurons are important, it's actually the deterioration of the gaps between the brain cells that has the biggest impact, says Dr Wojtek Rakowicz, a consultant neurologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.
