Hello, folks. Happy Monday, and it is one, too. There was a football game last night. If you didn't watch or hear about it, I've got some news for you: Donald Trump is president. Birds fans and others, here are some things other than football. Here's the story of Joe Spina the CPA. The course of Spina's trajectory as a real estate investor goes like this: Start small, think small, then wake up one day and realize you really aren't that small anymore.
Greetings technogeeks, savvy online shoppers, observers of the passing scene, TV addicts, gadget-lovers, futurists etc. - along with off-the-gridders, cave-dwellers, computerless old people or anyone else who has never bought a dang thing from Amazon. We're still in the running, baby! The reality that the city made the first cut in the PICK ME! PICK ME! spectacle to be selected by the Infinitely Tendriled Goliath that is Amazon for its HQ2 was the business news of the day.
Little known fact on this cold morning: On this date 43 years ago, the American popular music scene changed forever, and not necessarily in a musically interesting way. Barry Manilow's unforgettable Mandy became his first No. 1 hit. McDonald's has thrown down the gauntlet. With a daring prediction, the fast-food chain says it plans to recycle packaging at most of its restaurants around the world - in eight years. So, don't wait up.
Are consumer goods makers saying they want to cut down on planet-killing plastic because they are all of a sudden concerned about the environment? I doubt it. But any movement in the direction is welcome. http://bizj.us/1pgy2whttps://t.co/xP1Rgn0JoH
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".
