Acquia, a big Boston tech startup that sells software used to run corporate, government, and nonprofit websites, is looking for a new boss. Chief executive Tom Erickson, a longtime tech-industry leader, plans to step down from the job and become the company’s board chairman. And cofounder Dries Buytaert, the company’s chief technology officer, will help Erickson jointly run the company while they search for a new chief executive.
Of the dozen or so politicians and executives who cut the ribbon for the new Boston Landing train station, one of them must have been particularly relieved. We’re talking about Keith Craig, director at NB Development Group. New Balance chairman Jim Davis had the vision (and the money) to redevelop the 15 acres he acquired several years ago in this section of Brighton overlooking the Mass. Pike. But it was Craig’s job to turn that vision into a reality.
Michigan attorney David Fry hasn’t spoken to his cousin in 25 years. He’s hoping that says less about his ability to hold a serious grudge than it does about just how destructive it can be when a family doesn’t deal with the problems that can come with sharing property before things get out of hand. “I saw my mother, who was a third-generation owner, struggle with sharing a property with her older brother,’’ Fry said. “His kids just moved in.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
