By 2020, creativity will be one of the top three job skills most in demand, along with complex problem-solving and critical thinking. That’s according to a “Future of Jobs” report compiled by the World Economic Forum, which surveyed top human resources and strategy officers in global companies. The report compared jobs skills that were projected to be in demand in 2020 with those considered most important in 2015. In the listings, creativity moved from 1oth place in 2015 to third place in 2020.
What a difference a block makes: Here's how a redeveloped overpass performed what one urban planner calls "an act of magic" in Columbus, Ohio. It has been a while since we talked to Jeff Speck about the relationship between convention centers, meeting attendees, and walkable downtowns. But I am in Columbus, Ohio, for a press trip and I thought of Speck and his book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save American, One Step at a Time.
Beer gardens, yoga, fire pits, and live music — these true-to-their-destinations airport amenities can take the sting out of a layover. There are some airport extras you can imagine finding anywhere, like free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and lots of charging stations. Others, like the half dozen below, not only offer travelers a little comfort, relaxation, or entertainment, but tell you something about the destinations where they are located.
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".
