An online dollar store. Two services that link doctors and patients by video chat. A cybersecurity company that keeps hackers out of cars. These startups are part of the eclectic mix that makes up The Wall Street Journal’s ranking of 25 technology companies to watch—companies that show signs of becoming emerging leaders in some of the most dynamic parts of the tech industry.

Readers want more context and background included in news reporting. They want new ways to receive their news, on next-generation handheld devices, for instance, rather than simply on a Web page. They want fewer ads - especially the kind that animate or show up in popup windows.
It started with a thud, an unusually loud sound that, although not immediately recognizable, was strange and unsettling enough to make clear that something was terribly wrong. It was almost like a truck slamming into a highway-construction plate. But 11 stories up, few street sounds reach us. It just didn't add up.
"This is no way for the U.S. ... to prosper," says trade economist @D_A_Irwin. He argues Trump has it wrong in focusing on deficits with other countries rather than on trade rules that give fair access to markets. https://t.co/HEhtMSXRKW via @WSJ
In calculating return on investment (ROI) for education, the "I" is easier to measure than the "R," said Roger Ferguson, CEO of TIAA, at #wsjfutureof education. The "R" must include value of first job, value of lifelong career and value to society. @wsj
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".
