Overall employment in the U.S. economy is projected to increase 6.5 percent during the 2014–24 decade, adding about 9.8 million new jobs. The most new jobs added and fastest job growth will occur in healthcare practitioners and technical occupations and healthcare support occupations. Projected changes to demographics as the population ages will drive the expected growth in the healthcare occupational groups.
It was just before 11 o'clock. I was up on the second floor of the Long Beach Convention Center looking down through the glass at the line outside--a line I couldn't see the end of. All in all, 50,000 people descended upon the convention that weekend for Complex Con, an event without peer in the Millennial "verge culture" sphere.
Back in 2013 Nikalene Riddle, a stay-at-home millennial mom from Prospect, Australia, felt out of shape and alone. When not tending to her kids, she bided her time by reading recipes on Facebook and seeking out other moms to connect with. But there was a problem. None of the recipes were healthy and she just couldn't find a place to fit in. This part of her story is not uncommon.
@AlexSaksri@ComplexCon@Inc@N_C_B@richantoniello@marcecko Didn’t mean to reduce. Thought I made it quite clear in that second paragraph just how large the event is. Was only highlighting a part of the overall marketing strategy many merchants used. Since that was the takeaway portion, I felt the title should reflect that.
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".
