dateline vs deadline :

dateline or deadline

If your boss has asked you to complete your work by the weekend then he has given you a deadline. Crossing that point of time without finishing your work would (probably) make you dead. If you see a date mentioned before a newspaper article, it is dateline or the time of reporting/filing the news item.
