What does it take to make robots more welcome in the workplace? The answer may be programming them to make mistakes. Researchers in Austria conducted a study recently in which interactions between robots and human co-workers were examined in a simulated workplace. When some of the robots made mistakes—something they were programmed to do—the robot-human interactions observed were more positive than in sessions where the robots did their jobs perfectly.
When Lyna Rose changed her last name to Rose from Jones last year, she felt the career benefits almost instantly. People in her social media networks started to refer to her by both her first and last name, which made her accounts more memorable and ultimately grew her online following and her business. She says the change also created a “softer” image she has long sought, which chimed with her career as a “spiritual influencer” – she writes about spiritual topics and has a large web presence.
Chicago is getting a spa straight out of "Game of Thrones" (minus the drama). Inspired by Greek and Roman public bathhouses, Aire Ancient Baths will be housed in a 19th century former factory in River West. The Granada, Spain-based chain, with locations in Barcelona, New York and several other European cities, focuses on pool-filled spas housed in unique venues and are "bringing historical buildings back to life," says Silvia Barnett, the company's head of marketing for North America.
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".
