Between dog-friendly offices, an annual banquet, department outings for Whirlyball and Chicago Cubs games, quarterly celebrations of employee birthdays, $500 employee referrals and a matching 401(k) program, it seems the employee benefits cup at Impact Networking runneth over. That's right. Meetings. The company's quarterly meetings, to be specific. They're pretty popular among the employees. The meetings are mandatory, but they're at a Rosemont barbecue restaurant with food and open bar.
You love your phone. You'll do without it. That's the prediction of iPhone co-creator Andy Grignon. Although he said the average mobile phone user interacts with their device about 2,617 times a day (heavy users, more than twice that), he expects mobile phones to be phased out. "I think we'll start to see the outright elimination of phones over time," Grignon said during a talk at the Dare Mighty Things tech conference at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre Friday.
Pearachute founder Desiree Vargas Wrigley ⇒ entered the “Shark Tank” and walked out with a $500,000 deal from Mark Cuban amid harsh criticism from an investor on Sunday’s show — but the deal fell apart not long after the show was filmed more than a year ago, she said. “The terms were terrible,” she told supporters gathered for a watch party Sunday at Industrious in Chicago.
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".
