BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

best professional advice A former boss of Ms. Regan's bearing no relation, Tom Regan, "told me that it's great to think things through but to pay attention to your gut and what that's telling you. I think in my instance, it's helped me make the right decisions. One in particular was when I decided to leave Becton Dickinson to work for GE Capital. A few folks commented to me that it was not the right decision to make because I had such a great position and opportunity at Becton. I was the planned successor as the head of risk management at Becton. (But) I had the confidence to follow my instinct, and in retrospect, it is the best career path decision I have made."
