SAKAI, Japan — Naoki Hosoya and Risa Ikeda are typical of the type of employee Foxconn will be looking for in Wisconsin. Both have engineering degrees, and have moved to Sakai from other cities in Japan to pursue careers at the LCD plant there. “One of my jobs is adjusting the colors on the LCD panels. I like this part the best,” said Naoki. “I work on developing new products that we’ve never had before. I find it very rewarding,” Risa added.
OSAKA, Japan — Guangzhou, a trading metropolis of nearly 15 million people, is the epicenter of southern China, and the first city where the straight-jacket of socialism unbuckled to embrace the allure of capitalism. It’s also home to the biggest foreign investment project in southern China in 40 years, since China opened to outside business. “The Foxconn project will bring huge extra benefits to Guangzhou,” said Economist Lin Jiang at Sun Yat-sen University.
OSAKA, Japan — As the streets of Osaka, Japan come to life on a Monday morning in December, millions of people are on the move. More than 4,000 of them will make their way to a cutting edge industrial complex in the suburb of Sakai. While the signs say Sharp and SDP, which stands for Sakai Display Products, Foxconn is the majority shareholder of Sharp, and Foxconn founder Terry Gou controls SDP. The is the blueprint upon which the Wisconsin project will be built.
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".
