By shifting the focus from price alone to total consumer experience, Amazon is having its own effects — and in some cases, its ripples seem to be crashing into Wal-Mart's ripples. (Shutterstock)My brother asked me the other day whether Amazon is profitable. Well, yes, it is. In fact, it's been profitable for eight consecutive quarters and it has reported an annual profit for 11 of the past 13 years.
This really happened last week:The directors of privately held Uber Inc. were reviewing the recommendations contained in a report they had commissioned after their company’s boys’ club culture had become too toxic to ignore. Arianna Huffington, the conservative pundit turned liberal internet entrepreneur, explained to fellow directors that adding one woman to a corporate board often leads to the addition of more women — a development she clearly sees as a positive thing.
The top 10 residential real estate agencies in Arkansas didn’t change in 2016, but there was some shuffling of position as eight of the 10 reported higher sales volume than in 2015. Memphis-based Crye-Leike Realtors, the perennial No. 1, retained the top spot with sales of $1.26 billion last year — up almost 4 percent. But the No.
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".
