Sugar gliders, or gliding possums, are among the kinds of animals that passengers try to sneak onto flights under the guise of “service animals,” according to Delta. Service animals are meant to comfort their owners. But it appears they’re causing chaos on commercial flights. In light of increased incidents on its aircrafts, Delta Air Lines announced new procedures and updated requirements for customers traveling with service and support animals.
Shanna Tellerman successfully sold her first startup to AutoDesk and was a partner at Google Ventures before launching Modsy, a 3D home decorating service. Female-owned businesses account for 39% of all U.S. companies. Yet, venture-backed companies with women at the helm remain painfully low. Only 2.7% have a female CEO, according to a Babson College study. Meanwhile, the broader VC landscape has been overwhelmingly positive for entrepreneurs.
Walmart is the latest company to publicly announce wage increases, bonuses and other benefits since Trump signed tax reform into law last month. Eighty-one companies have publicly announced bonuses, wage increases or other kinds of benefits they’re offering employees since President Donald Trump signed tax reform into law on Dec. 22. Walmart (WMT) is the latest to credit the lower corporate-tax rate as a reason to reinvest the saved capital into its workforce.
Support animals wreaking havoc in the sky.

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".
