The entity started by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, to tackle big global problems is growing more like a tech startup than a typical charitable organization. A review of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative's own website and other online pages indicates it has just over 160 employees, with open positions for another 38 -- numbers confirmed by a source close to the organization. That's just 20 months after its founding in December 2015.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an online post that he will take two months' paternity leave later this year. Zuckerberg's wife, Priscilla Chan, is expecting the couple's second child by year's end. "Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, it's good for the entire family," Zuckerberg said. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and Chief Financial Officer David Wehner will be highest-ranking executives in his absence.
The impetus for the memo is the ongoing battle over net neutrality. Ajit Pai, Chairman of the U.S. Federal Communication Commission and a Republican, is preparing to scrap rules on net neutrality put in place by his Democratic predecessor, Tom Wheeler, during the Obama administration. The net neutrality fight pits online content providers like Google parent Alphabet, Facebook and Netflix against broadband service providers like AT&T, Verizon Communication and Comcast.
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".
