Most people think "retirement age" means sometime around the age of 65, when hair is going white (or disappearing) and a Barcalounger has been procured. Not so for the writer of The Money Habit who goes by the pseudonym "JP" and who retired — in New York City, no less — when she was 28 years old. According to Forbes, JP graduated from Harvard in 2009 and was soon offered a job with an investment firm where she earned a generous salary.
The No. 1 most accepted excuse for calling in sick to work is the flu, which seems pretty standard. No boss wants one worker with a virus to infect the whole office, and even if the employee is faking it, it's not worth taking the risk. But a few of the other top 10 most believable excuses for taking a day off from work might surprise you — like stress, depression, and anxiety.
If you get your trending advice from The Harvard Business Review — and who doesn't?! — then you may have caught their claim that data scientist is the "sexiest job of the 21st century". Bold assertion, we know, though in this case the word "sexy" mainly means "highly in demand" because there's such a shortage of qualified professionals in this role. According to the HBR:The title has been around for only a few years. . . .
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".
