If you feel your job is increasingly oriented around digital technologies these days, take some comfort in this: You’re part of a movement. Across the economy, many people are feeling that way. The level of digitalization in offices, factories, warehouses, and malls has sped up rapidly in the last 15 years, and it’s getting harder for humans to keep up with the machines. The Brookings Institution looked at the digital content of jobs across the U.S. for a new report.
Jaime Chiang, a San Francisco branding executive who was badly injured after being pushed down some stairs in a Whole Foods store, had escaped the lion’s share of her $22,000 in medical costs, as you can see in the video below: Another man had reversed a charge for a pregnancy test (bills for male pregnancy tests are more common than you might think, Echevarria says).
Asked to name a responsible brand in a recent survey, many respondents said Toms, Whole Foods, Starbucks–all known as socially conscious companies. Many also said Walmart, Amazon, and Target, which are just big companies. And a handful said the National Rifle Association. Almost a third (30%) of respondents couldn’t name any socially responsible company, the poll of 1,000 Americans found.
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".
