Keep your edge. Holly Paul, a re­­­cruiter at PricewaterhouseCoopers, stays competitive by “doing something different every few years. At PwC, I’ve moved five times and done seven different jobs in 18 years. Keeps me on my toes.”

— Adapted from “Executive Profile,” interview by Emily Mekinc, Washington Business Journal.

Canary in the coal mine. As head of the Commodity Futures Trading Com­­mission in the 1990s, Brooksley Born warned about the perils of derivatives. Unfortunately, officials in Washington shouted her down, bringing on the Wall Street crash of 2008 a decade later. At 71, Born still advocates for reform.

— Adapted from “The Regulator Who Saw Danger,” Penelope Wang, CNNMoney.com.

— Adapted from “Elevated carbon dioxide may impair reasoning,” ScienceNews.org.
