There is an oral tradition in in that those who are mentoring were mentored themselves. “It is part of the fabric of success,” said Mariko Silver, president at Bennington College. People without that access can really miss out. When Silver finally took the advice of a male mentor to create a 1-year, 3-year and 5-year plan for her personal, professional and organizational goals she wished she had done so sooner. Her mentor learned about the strategy from his own mentor.
Janelle Wang questioned herself many times after launching ACTON Global - a maker of smart electric roller skates, scooters and skateboards. The lessons she learned from a mentor gave Wang the confidence to keep pushing herself and her company forward after starting-up in 2013. "Through the mentorship I learned that by doing and trying, if you fail, that is OK," Wang said. "There is a process and you will get it right as you keep trying."
As a taxpayer and a parent, I support the school facility sales tax referendum in Peoria County. Here's why:This half-cent sales tax increase will create much-needed revenue that all public schools in Peoria County can use to make improvements to buildings, like new roofs and energy-efficient windows, and to add technology.Many school buildings in our county are outdated and inadequate for today's standards.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
