Just a decade ago, it would have been extraordinary for a small independent college with roots that go back 130 years to even entertain a merger. But times, and finances, have changed. Last month, Wheelock College, a 1,000-student teacher education and social worker school founded in 1888, said it was in talks to merge with Boston University, its much larger neighbor in the city’s Fenway-Kenmore area.
Harvard University’s endowment, the world’s largest academic fund, continues to trail far behind its peers, posting an 8.1 percent return on investments last fiscal year. The university has been struggling to right its $37.1 billion endowment, hiring new leadership last year, jettisoning underperforming assets, cutting staff, and restructuring its investment management teams and pay plans. But those changes, launched by N.P.
Chelsea Manning’s title as visiting fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government lasted less than 48 hours. The school’s dean, Douglas W. Elmendorf, revoked the invitation to the Army intelligence analyst-turned-whistle-blower early Friday morning and said the school had made a mistake in offering her a prestigious fellowship position. Harvard’s initial invitation to Manning had drawn considerable criticism and anger, including from CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
