Geographic information systems are widely used in site-selection processes in the US and are catching on in the rest of the world. Courtney Fingar understands that the march to automation is a frightening one, but it is that or be left behind... This new year, 2018, marks exactly a decade since fDi Magazine got into the data game.
The Beauty of a Boring Wardrobeby Courtney Fingar When it comes to closets, fifty shades of grey can be the hottest option of all. I am possibly the least likely fashion blogger ever. Of all the F words one could use to describe me (hey, I meant fun, feisty and fabulous, you potty-mouth), ‘fashionista’ is not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not frumpy by any stretch of the imagination.
Zdenko Lucić, managing director of the Agency for Investments and Competitiveness of Croatia, talks to Courtney Fingar about the country’s growth industries of tourism and technology, and a refocus on quality investments. Q: There seems to be some momentum behind Croatia at the moment, with the country placing highly in fDi’s recent rankings – such as our Tourism Locations of the Future 2017/18 list – and attracting some significant investments.
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".
