A hiring manager wants to know what you can do for their company, so if you dont address your cover letter to their needs, itll be trashed.Respond to the Job RequirementsIf you really want to make an impression, respond to one or mora bullet points from the job description, and outline how you can fulfill each requirement. This shows you that you can handle the duties of the job, and hit the ground running on your first day.Also write about what attracted you to this particular role in the first place. When you do this, dont talk about salary numbers or perks, but rather something that makes you excited to work for the company.Additionally, you could point out a problem youve noticed its facing - one that youd be able to fix.You can also mention an interesting fact that youve learned about the company or position, such as a bit of information you picked up from reading the news. This will prove that youre motivated and detail orie nted.Craft a Great Cover Letter Opening LineUse one of these ideas for the opening sentence of your cover letter.

When composing your cover letter, think of it as your elevator pitch in written form.3 Great Cover Letters from Creative Job SeekersMillions - if not billions - of cover letters have been sent out, but only a small fraction of them are cover letters that work and that have landed an applicant a job.

Dont Overlook the Puncture Dont Overlook the Puncture Dont Overlook thePunctureMIT Ph.D. candidate Nikolai Begg says the riskiest parte of a surgery may not be what you think.I always had an interest in medicine and I was watching surgery and realized how risky it can be just getting access to start it by puncturing, he says. So many medical procedures require a puncture step. If youre trying to get to some space deep in the body, you want to get there with as little tissue disruption as you can, which is why we use needles. Or think about cranial exerzierening when you have to remove a section of skull away and they drill holes.But what can be done to improve the puncture step, if anything at all? When you drill through drywall to hang a picture, there is a moment when the drill bit goes to the other side and the drill bit jerks forward, he says. The same thing is an issue when it comes to puncturing in surgery the risk of puncturing too far. You could hit a structure in the spinal column for some medical procedures. You could drill too far into a skull.MIT Ph.D. candidate Nikolai Begg invented a force-sensing instrument. Image Lemelson-MIT ProgramWhile an engineering student at MIT, he created a puncture procedure device with the concept of least-resistance force to decrease the acceleration. The idea is a flexural mechanism where there is force applied to the tip of the device, the mechanism essentially locks in place within the body of the device opposing an attraction spring, he says. As the device accelerates forward after puncture, the spring is causing the blade to accelerate backwards. You are decreasing the risk of an injury from the puncturing part of surgery.The first of the device models his team built werent flexural and didnt have a low part count. He estimated there were 12 components to linkage and using flexure cut the part count down to one. Simpler and less expensive, he says. You have a device body for housing, sheathing for the tip, the pu ncturing tip is coupled to the flexural linkage, which couples to the retraction spring, which is coupled to the body of the device, he says.The size of the puncture? Begg says it could be hypodermic-size to drill bit-size, to even larger. The size of the puncture depends on the application and forces involved, he says. Imagine a needle used to puncture into the lung to collect fluid. That is going to be a smaller flexure. When youre trying to gain access to the brain involving the skull, a much different level. For flexure, one of the proof-of-concept models I built was about an inch square and half an inch thick. And actually it was a metal part using micro waterjet cutting to make the flexure. The flexural joint had extremely thin sections so it needed to use manufacturing technology.He has learned many lessons from working on the device. A major one was an even greater appreciation of considering the business side of things. I was very focused on the proof of concept and didnt t hink as much about these other things, but, if I had, then that can keep you from opening your mind and thinking broadly, too, he says. The work also just reinforced my need to be fascinated and curious. Just observing and talking with surgeons and you realize theres a problem. Its exciting to dream of a possible solution.Eric Butterman is an independent writer. For Further Discussion As the device accelerates forward after puncture, the spring is causing the blade to accelerate backwards. You are decreasing the risk of an injury from the puncturing part of surgery. Nikolai Begg, MIT

How to Avoid the Post-Vacation Blues - The MuseHow to Avoid the Post-Vacation BluesYoure away for the week, soaking up some sun in Florida. Or, hiking in the Rockies. Or, exploring the streets of Rome. Everythings going great, until the last day of vacation rolls around and you remember what awaits you.Work. Everyone, at some point or another, has felt that pit in their stomach as they realized their vacation fun welches coming to an end- and that theyd have to return to the office. Most of the time this feeling is normal. But when is it not? When is this anxiety a sign that somethings wrong or needs to change in your career?I spoke with Dr. David Ballard, Director of the American Psychological Associations Center for Organizational Excellence, whos studied this exact phenomenon. In the organizations 2018 Work and Well-Being Survey, Ballard and his team tapped into how US workers approach vacation We wanted to look at the psychological aspects of it- how it relates to job stress, and what differences we see when people come back from vacation and how long they last.What he found, as you may know from reading other Muse articles, is that a majority of people do benefit from time off. When they return theyre less stressed, they feel more motivated, and their work quality and productivity is better.But on the downside, for almost two-thirds of US workers, those positive effects went away within a few days of coming back to work, he adds.The survey highlights even more 21% said they feel tense or stressed out while on vacationand 42% reported that they dread returning to work.This is obviously a problem. Whats the point of a vacation when, despite the upsides, were still likely to be stressed during it and even more likely to lose all that weve gained once its over? And, how can we use this information to improve how we take time off?Ballard says Research shows that when people come back to work and theres a mountain of work waiting for themthen those gains they ma de dissipate even fasterif you start worrying about that as your vacation wraps up, its eating into the recovery experienceits pulling you back into work when youre supposed to be still destressing and recovering.So, what can you do with this knowledge? Ballard says it comes down to these three crucial stepsPlanning aheadGetting stress recovery experiences while on vacationEasing back into workLets dive into what each one of those steps means. Planning AheadYou need to really have a concrete plan for what needs to be covered while youre out- whos going to pick up the extra work, what tasks need to be covered versus what can wait, making sure your team has clear expectations about your availability, he says. (This checklist can be helpful in tracking all you have to get done before you go.)This preparation alone immediately gets rid of the vacation guilt you might have. The more prep you give your team, the easier you can relax knowing nothing will go to hell while youre out. It also ensures you come back with a to-do list that feels more manageable (and less stressful to think about on vacation). Getting Stress Recovery Experiences While On VacationThen, when youre actually away, unplugWe know from the research that to recover from stress, to really rechargeyou need time periods when youre not working, but also when youre not thinking about work, states Ballard. Engage in some form of relaxation (reading a good book or meditating, for example) as well as something stimulating but not work-related (like hiking or exploring a new city) - both are key for stress recovery.Many of us have the experience in which you come back from a really busy vacation where you planned lots of activities and you feel like you need a vacation from your vacation. So make sure youre sleeping enough and taking care of yourself, all of the things we know we need to do but most of us are not great at, he adds.Easing Back Into WorkWhen you return, dont just leap back into the grind. The reality is that youre not going to be your most productive self right away- and trying to will only decrease the effects of your relaxing trip. departure off with small tasks, like checking email or completing easy wins, and take plenty of breaks, including lunch (and read this article and this one).One more thing worth mentioning is that vacations can only do so much for us. Sure, theyre great, but if you expect them to solve all your work-related problems- If I just go away for a week Ill come back and everything will be fine- youre going to be disappointed.Its also important to find times during your normal work week or normal work day to engage in stress recovery behaviorsits unrealistic to expect that if youre taking a vacation every six months that can tide you over very well, states Ballard. So, its up to you to find ways to rest and recharge on a regular basis so that you dont rely on vacations alone.

FIS-B and How It WorksFIS-B and How It WorksFIS-B, short for Flight Information System Broadcast, is a data broadcasting service that works along with ADS-B to allow aircraft operators to receive aeronautical information such as weather and airspace restrictions through a data link to the cockpit. Along with its partner system TIS-B, FIS-B is available at no cost to ADS-B users as part of the FAAs Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The system gathers information through the use of ADS-B ground stations and radar and delivers that data to an aircrafts onboard cockpit display in the form of weather alerts, airport information and various other reports. FIS-B was created for use by general aviation pilots. How It Works Information for FIS-B is transmitted from ground stations to participating ADS-B In aircraft on a 978 MHz UAT data link. Aircraft that use a 1090 MHz Extended Squitter transponder will leid be eligible to receive the FIS-B product. There are currentl y over 500 operation ground stations that are part of the ADS-B network, and the FAA is working to add approximately 200 additional stations. The aircrafts ADS-B receiver (known as ADS-B In) interprets the data and displays it onto a screen in the cockpit. The actual interface on which FIS-B will be displayed will vary, but it will typically be incorporated into a flight management system or an electronic flight bag (EFB). Equipment Aircraft that want to receive FIS-B information must be equipped with ADS-B Out and ADS-B In equipment. ADS-B requires a WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and a transponder when one is not already included with the ASD-B unit. While TIS-B (Traffic Information Service-Broadcast) is available to both 978 MHz UAT and 1090ES transponder users, FIS-B is only broadcast to ADS-B users with a dedicated 978 MHz Universal Access Transceiver (UAT). FIS-B is not available to aircraft operators that use a 1090ES transponder for ADS-B. Operators using a 1090ES transponder will have to get their weather services and graphics from a third-party source, such as XM WX Satellite Weather. A compatible cockpit display (CDIT) is also needed to display the FIS-B data in a usable format. Limitations FIS-B is strictly an advisory service and is not meant to take the place of standard weather briefings and preflight planning. It is not a substitute for official weather sources such as air traffic control, flight service stations, NOAA or DUATS. FIS-B data link services operate in line-of-sight only. Aircraft receivers must be within the service volume of the ground station to receive FIS-B. Services One of the advantages for pilots using the 978 MHz UAT is that basic FIS-B services will be available to use at no cost, and these services are comparable to an XM weather subscription service. Currently, FIS-B offers the following communications services Aviation weather products such as METARs, TAFs, winds aloft and NEXRAD precipitation maps.Temporary flig ht restrictions (TFRs) and status updates for special use airspace (SUA).AIRMETs, SIGMETs and convective SIGMETs.Pilot Reports (PIREPs).NOTAMs (Distant and FDC). Future services might include cloud top reports, lightning and turbulence information, and icing forecasts in both textual and graphical depictions. Its expected that these upgraded services will originate from a third-party and might require a subscription fee. All of the services above are updated as they become available and are transmitted every five or ten minutes, depending on the type of information. NEXRAD will be rebroadcast every 2.5 minutes.

With agrowth mindset, we meet challenges with How can I learn to do this? instead of I cant do this.Carol Dweck, one of the pioneers of growth-mindset research,found that unwarranted praise can promote a fixed mindset in children.

Young kids ask a lot of questions. Part of a growth mindset is channeling a childs innate curiosity and applying it to your work.One of my companys principles is We dont take ourselves too seriously.If you take yourself too seriously, you shut off avenues through which you can learn and grow. An unfortunate side effect is that youll start watching a YouTube video at 11 p.m. on how to make tiramisu and before you know it, its 3 a.m. and you somehow got to a Wikipedia article on Johannes Gutenbergs first iteration of the printing press.When youre in the right environment, every situation can be a learning opportunity. Weve implemented a management/geschftliches miteinander book club at Fresh Prints. This allows us to learn together on a company-wide level. We send each other short videos and articles and shar e books we find interesting. Its not a bad use of company time if we watch helpful videos on the job. Our company principles allow us to do so. In fact, they encourage that. fruchtwein young entrepreneurs start out with a growth mindset. Thats the only way to get your feet off the ground.- Jacob Goodman, co-owner and CEO of Fresh PrintsI started my first business when I was 12 years old. Being young, I knew there was a lot I didnt know, so I spent time around people who knew more than I did and absorbed their knowledge. But it was when I went to my first motivational speaking event with Jim Rohn, Tom Hopkins, and Brian Tracy that I got the real drive to learn as much as I could.Now I have a very consistent lifestyle. I get up at 445 a.m. every day to do my studies, read a business book, and read about Aspergers syndrome (to gain knowledge to help with my son). After that, I listen to an audiobook while getting ready for the day or doing household chores. While working on my latest b ook, 12Books12Months, I find inspiration and additional supportfor my own theories with examples from other books and content that I find helpful in expressing what I have to share. Make learning one of your non-negotiables and be sure to create an effective schedule so you will receive all the benefits of the process.- Vicki Fitch, author, speaker, and business consultantWhen I became an attorney, I realized that to be great at the profession, it wasnt enough to learn just what was required. Additional knowledge resulted in having an advantage over my opponent and served my clients better.I have to build my learning into my day. I listen to business podcasts daily, during any driving as well as any house chores. I also take online business courses to constantly improve the performance of my companies. Every summer, I travel with my family mostly to Europe and I learn art and history related to our destinations. I interact with several business mentors on a regular basis. Currentl y, Im also studying style and have hired a consultant to help me understand it better.I feel like Im constantly growing, and my circle of friends includes fascinating and likeminded people who are committed to learning. I look at learning as a tool to make life less stressful and less busy. It helps in organizing systems and processes to avoid chaos. One of the main reasons I love entrepreneurship is that it involves constant learning. I use any setbacks or challenges as triggers to learn how to overcome them. One of the most successful people I know once told me that his life motto was established to put himself in uncomfortable positions If Im too comfortable, Im not learning, not growing.- Elena Ledoux, founder and chief mommy of MommyGo.comA version of this article originally appeared on SUCCESS.com and in the Spring 2019 issue of SUCCESS magazine.Cecilia Meis is a full-time writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.
