For the first time since the American Association of State Colleges and Universities started tracking the top state concerns impacting higher education 11 years ago, changes to federal policy tops the list. Specifically, concerns about how the federal tax bill will put pressure on state revenue, and by extension, higher education funding, abound.
The Obama administration was not the first to send its officials to the college presidency, and it will not be the last. Increasingly, boards are looking to business, government and even medicine for individuals who might bring fresh perspectives to campus and invigorate the broken higher ed business model. In some cases, this has worked out. Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, for example, seems to be breathing new life into Purdue University and shaking up the industry as a whole.
In the 2017 American Council on Education study on the college presidency, a large majority — 61% — lamented that there's "never enough money" to do their jobs effectively. College presidents are expected to fundraise, find ways to drastically cut from the bottom line while maintaining a high quality product, keep tuition low while public funding is also at an all-time low, and find ways to innovate and present a competitive advantage to attract a dwindling pool of students to campus.
Bottom line: we need to stop teaching children everyone’s a winner, every time. We are handicapping them. Instead, we should teach them to lose with grace and humility and learn the lessons of the loss, and come back harder next time to secure the win. #end

But I’ve been reading “The Last Republicans,” about 41 & 43, and the thing that keeps standing out for me is how much of a competition everything was in Prescott Bush’s and then George HW’s houses and how that seems to be a big part of the children’s drives to succeed
Everything is a competition in our house. There are clear winners and losers for every menial task. I usually keep that to myself, bc honestly, I don’t care what y’all have to say about how I’m raising my children.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
