So much talk of meditation, centering and the connection between childhood fears and workplace attitudes: I had to keep telling myself that I was in a factory in New Jersey and not sitting in the office of a very friendly shrink.
Shortly after Isabelita “Lita” Marcelo Abele became president and chief executive of U.S. Lumber Inc., taking over her husband’s role, most of the employees quit. “They don’t want the boss’s wife here,” said Abele, 65. U.S. Lumber, based in Woodbury Heights, employs 12 and supplies lumber to sub-contractors. In the mid-1980s, Abele joined the business owned by her husband, Merrill “Les” Abele. In 1989 or 1990, she said, she spun off a lumber brokering business, which she led.
Daniel Garrison has three pairs of black pants — a nondescript pair, a cargo-style pair, and a set of black khakis. And on a recent Thursday morning, it was almost more than he could bear to choose which pair to wear to begin his new life. “I picked the khaki ones,” he said by phone. In the background were all the noises of his new life — supermarket customers banging their carts, the cheery sound of a loudspeaker, lots of talking.
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".
