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”.

Halloween homeowners’ stunt nothing to snicker about


Oh, what would a trick-or-treater do for a full-size Snickers bar? Not vandalize your house? Maybe.
