Haley Morgan from Jamesville-DeWitt high school knows she wants to study engineering in college, possibly chemical engineering. This summer she will present her research on chemical reactions involving different metals—based on her work in Professor Jesse Bond’s lab“I really like getting to design my own experiments and be able to create new ideas. To come here and see what you are doing and to realize—I really do like this and want to do this later in life,” says Morgan.
For Cornell students, the reports sound like something from a horror film. Police say on October 8th, three students reported waking up in the early morning hours and seeing a strange man standing at the foot of their bed. Two of the students told police that when they sat up in bed the intruder said "sorry" and ran out. All of the reports came from Ithaca's Collegetown neighborhood. Cornell Junior Sophia Timko lives in Collegetown.
It was a rare opportunity and one that College of Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Amit Sanyal and his doctoral student Sasi Prabhakaran G’15 wanted to make the most of. They had the chance to develop open space at the Syracuse Center of Excellence into an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) laboratory. “It was like creating a lab from scratch,” Sanyal says. They had plenty of room to breathe and to fly inside a fully customizable space more than 20 feet high.
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".
