President Donald Trump met with tech executives again on Thursday as part of Tech Week at the White House, this time to discuss drone regulations and 5G communications infrastructure. Following Tuesday’s meeting with execs, which was centered around the government’s technological infrastructure, Thursday’s meeting on “American Leadership in Emerging Technology” was focused more on what the government could do to bolster private sector growth.
Foreign entrepreneurs hoping to work in the U.S. on a “startup visa” have had their hopes dashed after an anonymous source inside the government said the already approved visa rule might not come to fruition after all. According to an article published by the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday, the International Entrepreneur Rule that was signed-off by former President Barack Obama has been delayed and could be rescinded altogether. The visa was supposed to go into effect on July 17.
The sudden departure late Tuesday night of Uber Technologies Inc. Chief Executive Travis Kalanick makes anything else happening at the embattled ride-hailing giant look pale in comparison. But earlier Tuesday, in an effort to regain the public’s confidence after a long period of turmoil, Uber said it has embarked on a “180 Days of Change” mission that aims to right some wrongs at the company. One of the first of these changes: adding a tipping option to the app.
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".
