It’s just an egg sandwich. But it’s so pretty. Kate Arends Peters tossed it together in 10 minutes — some sliced avocado, delicate pieces of pancetta, pretzel bread, an egg — and quickly snapped a dozen iPhone photos for Instagram before sitting down to take a big, satisfying bite. Then she wiped her mouth with an artfully rumpled blue-and-white tea towel. The Martha Stewart of social media doesn’t use paper napkins.
Amazon jumped into the smartphone world today with Fire Phone. Here's a rundown of all the tech specs and tricks, including a 4.7-inch display, unlimited cloud storage for photos and the much-rumored 3D effect called "dynamic perspective." Nifty stuff, but is "dynamic perspective" enough to send people scurrying for a new phone? Unlikely. So why, in a market that's already dominated by Android and Apple phones, would Amazon build it's own phone on a modified Android platform?
The conference room is full, but there’s only one woman seated at the table. Lisa Schlosser has seen this scenario play out far too many times. She’s grown accustomed to working in a computer and information technology field where men hold 75 percent of all jobs and nearly 90 percent of the executive positions at Fortune 500 companies. “Every once in a while, I have a meeting where it’s all women. I notice it,” said Schlosser, a chief technology officer at Thomson Reuters in Eagan.
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".
