As an administrator at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business, John Hennessey set a goal that was nothing short of taking a graduate program which was all-male and all-white and making it neither. He initially helped lead diversity efforts as associate dean — the first African-American student graduated from Tuck in 1966. The following year, when Dartmouth president John Sloan Dickey asked Mr. Hennessey to become Tuck’s sixth dean, the business school remained an all-male bastion.
Bernard Borman wrote a long opinion piece for the Globe in 1971 explaining why he thought Boston was declining. He listed 16 reasons in an essay that drew praise for drawing attention to a host of issues, and criticism for highlighting some off-beat theories. In tightly woven observations, he argued that government corruption and disrespect for public servants were alienating voters and making civic spirit wane.
Science and art, often considered divergent pursuits, “join hands to inform us all about the ecological and aesthetic value of plants,” Elizabeth Farnsworth once wrote. The two disciplines converged in Dr. Farnsworth, a senior research ecologist at the New England Wild Flower Society, who could dazzle an audience by effortlessly speaking without notes for an hour about the state of New England’s plants. She could be equally illuminating in her musings as a writer and artist.
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".
