It’s hard to keep resolutions, and it’s only JanuaryOK, so we are a week into New Year’s resolutions, and things are not going well. There has been wavering. There has been backsliding. There has been rationalizing. There has been complete and total throwing in the towel. Although there are a lot of reasons for this, the overriding factor, and one we all share, is that New Year’s Day is not a good time to be pledging to do anything that involves willpower.
This allowed me to see myself more clearly in the mirror. This, in turn, prompted me to immediately begin growing a beard. To say I was shocked to discover that the face staring back at me was no longer 30-something would be an understatement. Say what you will about drugstore glasses, but they do have their advantages. Here’s the thing: As you grow older you don’t generally look as good, but it doesn’t bother you that much because your eyesight is declining at the same time.
Professions where psychopaths may be lurkingBut enough about your boss. Instead, let's talk about what your boss is on track to becoming someday. And do you know which profession tends to have the most psychopaths? Personally, I would have guessed telemarketer, but the winner is, yes, CEO. In his book, “The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success,” psychologist Kevin Dutton compiled a list of the 10 professions with the most psychopaths.
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".
