At York University’s Schulich School of Business, three Toronto high-school students huddle with a mentor to review their progress in dreaming up a product from scratch. Their mentor, second-year Schulich MBA candidate Cortney Mills, peppers the students with questions about the cost, viability and consumer appeal of their on-paper idea: a WiFi router that doubles as a land-line phone and amplifies the wireless signal in a home.
John Dobson, the revered money manager and philanthropist who died in 2013, preferred to invest in people rather than buildings, according to those who run the foundation that bears his name. “He was a humble man who had no interest in having his name on a building,” says Randy Kelly, chairman of the John Dobson Foundation and chief executive officer of Formula Growth Ltd., one of Canada’s oldest investment management firms, founded by Mr. Dobson in 1960.
Benoit Aubert’s penchant for building things, often in collaboration with others, has landed him the top job at Dalhousie University’s Rowe School of Business. An announcement of his five-year appointment as director of the Halifax school, effective Jan 1, 2018, was expected Thursday. “We are very lucky to have him,” says Sylvain Charlebois, dean of Dalhousie’s faculty of management, of which Rowe is one of four schools.
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".
