The Hub L.os Angeles , the social enterprise-focused coworking space we first told you about last October , has just celebrated its first year of existence. As part of its celebration, it published a digital “yearbook” (complete with the videos above), chronicling a year in the life of the membership community. If that word yearbook is more reminiscent of school than of business, that’s probably no mistake.

Only in the past half decade has it ventured into Colorado, California, Minnesota and Utah, and 2017 was the year Dunkin’ learned to say “aloha,” with its first three stores opening in Hawaii.

Customers were requesting that the ice company sell household staples as well. The company tried it out and found great success, and the business was renamed to reflect its (then unheard-of) hours of operation. A convenience store empire was born: 7-Eleven now has 63,000 stores worldwide.
@hels The two fairest commissioning editors I ever had were @brihreed and @andrew25simon. They realized that spec reporting was labor, that spiking was normal and its necessity could often be determined early, and they structured agreements accordingly and fairly. Thanks, guys.
@hels Yeah but until this happens it *really* sucks to have something killed. When I am queen, there will also be fees merely for reporting out a pitch on spec. (The best editors have done this for me. Rarely.) The whole typical pitching/contract structure is bad, unfair, inefficient.
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".
