More than one-half of employed Americans in a recent survey expect significant technology improvements over the next 5 years to boost their productivity at work, and many are looking to their employers to provide related training. “This survey indicates most American employees feel optimistic that technology will help them in their jobs in the future,” said Gina Bauman, senior vice president of Marketing and Investor Relations at IVP, a late-stage venture capital and growth equity firm.
The southern part of the United States has been through the ringer these past few weeks, with Hurricane Harvey attacking Houston, Texas, in late August and Hurricane Irma pummeling the Florida coastline in early September. Many residents in both areas were forced to evacuate their homes and businesses in order to stay safe. Now that cleanup and recovery efforts are under way, one Florida company has come under fire for how it handled its employeesâ€™ leave requests before Hurricane Irma arrived.
HRSBT recently reported on the predicted costs this year’s eclipse had on employers’ bottom line—roughly $694 million—and if you missed the path of totality during this year’s eclipse, fear not, the next one should be making its way into the United States on April 8, 2024.

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
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".
