Jones and his wife Rosa Lee Harden, an Episcopal priest, moved from the Bay Area to Asheville a couple of years ago to be closer to their grandkids. “I want to invest in companies that are within a morning’s drive of where my grandsons go to sleep,” explains Jones. Upon arriving in Asheville, Jones, never one to sit still for long, began looking around for ways to invest and make an impact in his adopted hometown.
If women were as economically engaged as men in the economy, the nation’s GDP would be 7 to 9 percent higher. Women have been a bright spot in the economic recovery. Whether it is the rise in social entrepreneurship, Millennials steeped in a DIY culture, or a more pragmatic necessity to reinvent oneself for the new economy, women are starting up companies like never before – at one and a half times the national average. And they are leading their male peers in job creation among private firms.
WHEN it comes to Champagne, are you a slave to fashion? Americans are preparing to indulge in the traditional holiday bubblefest: more than 360 million glasses of sparkling wine are expected to be consumed over the holiday season, according to a new tally by M. Shanken Communications. Sparkling wines are made all over the world, but those hailing from the Champagne region of France — the only ones that can be called Champagne — have a special cachet.
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".
