districts like La Défense in Paris and planned communities like Reston, Virginia, outside Washington, DC, are cases in point. The time is ripe for similar developments to spring up around other congested cities.

Which it will be depends on what companies do now, before someone starts selling tickets to New York City. Paul F.

Reprint F0804A COMMUNICATION So You Think You’re a Good Listener by Patrick Barwise and Seán Meehan Boss: Why is Janet leaving? Colleague: She’s been unhappy for months . Boss: Why didn’t she tell me? Colleague: She tried. Conversations like that are all too com- mon. Why is it that bosses often seem unable to hear tough messages?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
