As harvest nears completion, you’re likely to feel a sense of tremendous relief. Whether it was your biggest crop or worst crop ever, it’s always a great feeling to get another crop year behind you. Undoubtedly, you will still be focused on things such as fertility management, tillage, grain storage, equipment maintenance and other fall activities. Yet as the pressures of harvest wind down, take a couple of days to rest your body and mind. Then transfer your focus from the field to the financials.
Benefits and perks are a great way to enhance an employee’s compensation. Depending on the type, structure and amount of the benefit, you might even receive some subtle tax benefits. One fairly common benefit is to provide a company vehicle to employees for their personal use. A vehicle can be used to drive to and from work, take kids to school and run personal errands. In some cases, it might serve as an employee’s primary vehicle.
According to the Department of Education, an estimated two million students are suspended from high schools every year, while a little more than three million students graduated high school in 2013. If about two thirds of students are suspended, clearly not all of them are dangerous; most were suspended for relatively minor offenses. In fact, nationally, only ve percent of expulsions or out-of-school suspensions lasting a week or longer involve possession of a weapon.
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".
