Het antwoord bleek even eenvoudig als doeltreffend: door het bedrijf in handen te geven van de achterban. Onder het motto ‘Own The Media’ startte Positive News in juni 2015 een crowdfundingscampagne met een twist: bestaande en nieuwe lezers werden niet gevraagd om geld te doneren, maar om aandelen in de publicatie te kopen. Vanaf 50 pond kon er worden geïnvesteerd. Ruim 1,500 investeerders van 16 tot 86 jaar overschreden het streefbedrag en brachten samen 236 duizend pond binnen.
‘Life is about enhancing society with our presence’Arun Gandhi is a lifelong advocate for his grandfather’s ideals. He was sent to India aged 12 to live on the famous ashram of Mahatma Gandhi just two years before his assassination. ‘Waste is violence’, ‘humility is strength’ and ‘anger can be good’ were just three of the lessons he learned there. Now 83, Arun Gandhi frequently writes and lectures on the philosophy of nonviolence. He speaks to Danielle Batist about technology, Trump and solitude.
By Danielle Batist The route from sketch to t-shirt to consumer is a winding road full of turns and sidetracks. But in the middle of this complex path, there is opportunity for powerful collaboration and cross-sectoral co-creation-and social entrepreneurs are proving to be key catalysts.
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".
