Joe Flacco's life changed forever Sunday night. He's now a Super Bowl champion -- and a Super Bowl MVP on top of that -- after leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Not only has he silenced his seemingly ever-present critics, he almost certainly will become one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL after a performance that included three first-half touchdowns. But there's more, something that has nothing to do with football. At his private post-game party for family and friends, Flacco and his wife, Dana, announced that they are expecting their second child -- news they had kept to themselves until that point.

When the news broke Monday that Catherine, the duchess of Cambridge - or, as everyone continues to insist on calling her, “Kate Middleton” - was pregnant , it was inevitable that the American news media would catch a serious case of royal baby feve r.

It has been decades since the last major breakthrough of a popular, easy-to-use and effective form of birth control. The pill has been available since 1960 and the IUD since 1965. Condoms have been around for centuries, although today's latex versions are improvements over those fashioned from sheep guts. But some innovative research is underway in Kim Woodrow 's bioengineering lab at the University of Washington. She and her students have produced electrically spun cloth with nanometer-sized fibers that can quickly dissolve and release drugs to prevent unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease.

Windsor Castle as ground zero for women's lib? And Downton Abbey a no-go zone for women's rights -- the same stately home where one titled daughter had a hot session of illicit sex, another married the radical chauffeur and the third made out with a farmer? HRH the Duchess of Cambridge -- Kate, nee Middleton -- is pregnant with a child who will, boy or girl, at some time well into this century sit on the British throne. Big deal, you're thinking. A girl in charge. Britain has had two queens regnant in about a half-century: Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. Ah, but here's the rub: If either of those women had had a brother, she would have been throneless.
