For generations, the American experience involved going to school, getting an education, entering the workforce and having a career. Today, technological advancements, demographic shifts and the ever-changing economic landscape threaten to change the definition of work. Robots are replacing humans and lines of code are replacing bricks and mortar.
The Atlantic recently did a special project on women in leadership, for which I contributed a modest reflection on women in foreign policy. There aren't a lot of female leaders on the global stage, but they're increasing in number, and I wanted to know how, or whether, they do things differently than the men we're used to having run things.

Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating | Moira Weigel What's it about? A history of dating in America, that shows how it's always been tied to the market forces of their era. Why should I read it? It's nice to read a book about dating that's not a memoir or self-help book.
A strong middle class is, for many people, central to the American idea. There are other core values too, of course-freedom, political representation, individualism, etc.-but an economy in which families can feel economic security, live comfortably, and build up wealth is definitely on the list. But that's not the economy America has today.
When today's consumers want to watch a TV show, they can watch it when they want on Netflix. When they want to buy household goods, they can order them from Amazon, even when the stores are all closed. And when they want a car, they can just book a Zipcar or hail an Uber, without owning a car.
What's a good use of money? For investors, that question comes down to a relatively straightforward calculation: Which of the available options has the greatest expected return on the investment? But investors are far from the only people who are using the "return on investment" framework to weigh different options.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
