Being comfortable in my own body is only something I have quite recently come to terms with. After endless teenage years of low self esteem and zero body confidence, I have finally gotten to a place where I feel confident in my body and myself. Although it admittedly took me two or three years to accept that my body was my body and I’d just have to live with and accept it. So, I’m here to share a few ways in which I became confident in my body and myself.
The Internet of Things (IoT) isn’t just a transformative trend for the future; it’s already here. Vodafone’s IoT barometer report for 2017/2018 surveyed 1,278 organizations across all major regions and sectors, and found that 29% had already launched IoT (up from 13% in 2013). What’s more, 51% of adopters said that IoT is already increasing revenue or generating new revenue streams. What’s not yet clear is who will capture most of that IoT revenue.
How does avoid creating a non-monoculture company, I mean, not just straight, white, men? And, how does one build a sustainable culture of diversity? Oh, I’m sorry. I just have to do this. I co-founded two startups with only-guys and not able to get above 10% non-men in the company. The first time, we were all-male friends from high-school, and the second time, we just didn’t get how important it was.
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".
