Greece's finance minister announced that the economically blighted nation might need around $13 billion to keep itself afloat, setting up the possibility of a third bailout.  Currently, about 16 percent of equity partners at big law firms are female -- a number that has barely budged in a decade. This despite the fact women graduate from law school in almost the same numbers as men. And, the U.S. Open tennis tournament starts today. It calls itself the biggest annual sporting event in the world.  That's by calculating attendance. But what about the dollars?
