Joe Ennen has discovered a way to turn salami into gold — and he’s using a marketing pitch that spins millennials. Ennen — with 20 years in the food business, including stops at the Safeway grocery chain and at Frito-Lay — was tapped nearly three years ago by Columbus Foods, a sleepy, San Francisco meat producer. Columbus’s wares included a salami brand that, despite being almost 100 years old, was hardly distinguishable from scores of other labels on grocer shelves.
As he angles to pull off the biggest tech merger of all time, Broadcom Chief Executive Hock Tan is meanwhile looking to scuttle Qualcomm’s $47 billion bid for NXP Semiconductors, The Post has learned. The boss of the chip-making giant told shareholders of rival Qualcomm in recent days that Broadcom will sweeten its $130 billion buyout offer for Qualcomm if the latter abandons its pursuit of NXP, two sources close to the situation said.
Fears are growing that the Justice Department’s suit to block AT&T’s proposed takeover of Time Warner could upend business-as-usual in an unexpected place — Silicon Valley. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has repeatedly stressed that his company’s objective in gobbling up Time Warner and its DirecTV subsidiary is to build an advertising platform that can compete with Facebook and Google. “That’s what this is about,” Stephenson said in defense of the proposed $85 billion deal earlier this month.
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".
