Amazon on Thursday released a short list of 20 cities it will consider for its second headquarters, a massive campus that could hold 50,000 jobs and promises to transform whatever town it lands in. Boston — and Somerville — made the cut, along with nearly every big city in the Northeast, and spots scattered from Toronto to Miami to Los Angeles. For most of the 238 cities and states across North America that bid for the giant project, Thursday’s list is the end of the road.
A parking lot in Chinatown could be replaced with a 30-story tower full of affordable housing units — with a permanent home for the neighborhood’s new Boston Public Library branch on the ground floor. That’s the plan proposed by a quartet of developers for a city-owned lot on Tremont Street near Tufts Medical Center. It calls for 171 apartments and condos aimed at lower- and middle-income residents, along with room for a nearby hotel to expand, a hospital garage, and space for the library.
WeWork is taking over another large chunk of space in downtown Boston. The co-working giant is leasing 100,000 square feet at 33 Arch Street, an office tower in Downtown Crossing. It’s the sixth Boston location — along with one in Cambridge — for the fast-growing firm, which is quickly becoming a major player in Boston’s office market. It offers flexible, monthly leases on a small office or single desk, an arrangement becoming increasingly popular with both individuals and businesses.
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".
