COLONIE – Before state Labor Department Deputy Commissioner Nathaalie Carey answered questions at the Women@Work "Straight Talk" breakfast Wednesday at the Hearst Media Center, she discretely worked the room, making her way to nearly 70 people. "When I came in today, I shook everyone's hand," she said. "Some of you took the opportunity and said, 'here's my business card.' Some of you were a little less firm."
Tara Kitchen owner Aneesa Waheed recalled the day in February 1993 she and her family moved from South India to Schenectady. It was during a huge blizzard, and the flight crew had to land at Newark instead of JFK. Waheed thought the flight attendants mispronounced the name Newark and must have meant New York, not New Jersey.
Gretchen Meyer was in too deep by age 26 with $40,000 in credit card debt when her husband of four years told her he was gay and leaving. Her heart broke. But Gretchen Meyer, financial consultant and founder of Gretchen Meyer Financial, somehow found strength; she also held true to her promise that she would not go bankrupt.
"There are too many voiceless women in this world already. For you to sit here and have a seat at the table, and not use your voice...is a tragedy." -- Nathaalie Carey, DOL's deputy commissioner of administration and CFO https://t.co/xi3HYrFNb9
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".
