Sasha Samochina has a really cool job. She’s an immersive visualization producer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where she creates interactive experiences to help scientists and engineers share their work with the public. In this episode of The Limit Does Not Exist you'll hear about Sasha’s "last-minute" choice to go to art school and the lightbulb moment at the Field Museum that led her to merge her love of art and science.
The summer before I started business school I went backpacking solo through Central America for a month. With five days left in the trip, I had found myself on the Atlantic coast of Costa Rica – in Puerto Viejo – and I was about halfway through a surfing lesson that was not going well at all. I’d always been an awkward kid, and after shooting up 6 inches the summer after 7th grade I became a klutz too.
What do you do if you don’t have a clear passion? Or if you used to have one, but now… not so much? In this episode of The Limit Does Not Exist, we discuss an alternative to all of that advice about passion, and it may just change the way you approach your work. We also address ambition and Tall Poppy Syndrome, embracing the unknown and a profound story about erasers. (Trust us on this one.)
@PhilippeReines@SenGillibrand There's nothing consensual between a boss and a subordinate. Also BC lied under oath and I'm sick of this being construed as a harmless little dalliance. He's part of the harassment culture we're dealing with today.
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".
