Five American families, each harboring a grave secret, took their seats around a vast dining table at the home of David Bradley, a Washington, D. C. , entrepreneur who owns the media company that publishes The Atlantic. The Bradleys’ gracious Georgian town house, on Embassy Row, is one of the city’s salons: reporters and politicians cross paths at off-the-record dinners with Supreme Court Justices, software billionaires, and heads of state. The families weren’t accustomed to great wealth or influence. The Federal Bureau of Investigation had warned the families not to talk publicly about their missing children—and the captors had threatened to kill their hostages if word leaked out—so each family had been going to work and to church month after... After hiding the truth for so long, the families were heartened to learn that others were going through the same ordeal, and they hoped that by working together they might bring their children home. His publishing company, Atlantic Media, has amassed half a dozen titles, from National Journal to Quartz. He was drawn into the families’ tragedy because he had.
Since I work overseas, I have to keep track of several times zones so that I know when my editors will be online and when would be a good time to call my family. The system tray clock in Windows 7 and 8. 1 can display up to three different world times at once. If you want to show another clock, tick one of the checkboxes labeled Show this clock. Select the time zone you'd like to track from the drop down menu. All times are organized based on how many hours ahead or behind they are from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Once you've selected the appropriate time zones, give each clock a label under "Enter display name. Now whenever you want to see your multiple time zones, just drop your mouse down to the lower right side of the Taskbar, click on the date and time, and your clocks will appear in a pop-up window. You could also just hover over the time in the taskbar and a small yellow pop-up window will appear with all your time zones in digital time format. Microsoft doesn't provide a keyboard shortcut for the clock, but you can get there with the keyboard by tapping Windows Key + B. Cycle through the tray with your arrow keys until the time and date are.
