I recently facilitated a future leader panel discussion where an audience member asked the panelists to share one "stupid thing" their firms are still doing that they wish they'd change. A bright, high-potential senior said he thought his firm should significantly reduce or quit auditing at client locations. He thought this was an obvious change to make and didn't understand why it was such a struggle for his leaders to get there. I can relate!
When we look back over a period of time, a year for example, at all the things we have done, experienced and accomplished, despite setbacks or obstacles, we can see how far we’ve come in such a short period. However, when we try to imagine progressive change a year ahead, it can seem like a difficult challenge; seeing more barriers and hurdles than pathways for success; especially when it comes to changing our lifestyle habits of eating and activity. Why is that?
Former WIS-TV reporter Jennifer Miscowitz Wilson wrote this at our invitation about her first Thanksgiving with the family of her future husband, state Attorney General Alan Wilson. Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. It has also set the stage for important milestones and hilarious memories in our life together. Here are some of the highlights since we began dating in 2002. In 2002, Alan invited me to his parents house on Thanksgiving Day.
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".
