The Facebook IPO. Yes, yes, we've heard plenty about what it means for investors. But how might the public offering affect the rest of us?

There are warning signs that loved ones might not be able to handle their finances on their own. We'll look at how to cope with the financial challenges of an aging population. And in a world where women are constantly told to reach for all of the stars, well, you might end up with a bunch of mediocrity instead. We chat with Mrs. Moneypenny about what it means to have it all. Plus, we break down the latest job numbers.
