So, Jeff Bezos has scratched us off his list of places to consider putting Amazon's second headquarters. I am still recovering from the shock and dismay that Bezos did not see the Capital Region as the perfect place to grow Amazon. As a longtime Tom Brady fan, though, my grief has been somewhat assuaged with the New England Patriots making it back to the Super Bowl. It is small consolation that we are not alone.
The Legislature is back in Albany. Andrew Cuomo has given us his State of the State message and we are waiting for his budget proposal, which will outline the legislative agenda for the next four months. The drama coming out of the Capitol this session will be over Cuomo's talk of a payroll tax, the worries about how federal tax reform will hurt New York, and, of course, the deficit. Plenty has been written about all that, and more will be.
Jan 12, 2018, 11:34am EST The Albany Business Review will celebrate the contributions of seven individuals who have changed the Capital Region’s technology sector at its Feb. 16 Disrupters luncheon at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, New York. Dick Frederick will be honored with the Career Achievement Award for his decades of helping entrepreneurs and startups succeed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
