After Julius Jacobs, now 84, retired from teaching, he started learning to play the piano, a lifelong dream. Along the way he composed some tunes, but no lyrics. On Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017, at the Huntington Unitarian Church, his music will be performed with words contributed by 24 lyricists, including his daughter Carren Jacobs, of Huntington. Jules Jacobs is not one to shy away from a mission.
Jules Jacobs is not one to shy away from a mission. In the 1950s and ’60s, his anti-nuclear efforts included rowing in the waters of Groton, Connecticut, to oppose the Polaris missile-equipped submarine project, and walking from California to Chicago to espouse demilitarization. He traveled to the National Mall in 1963 to hear Martin Luther King Jr. deliver his “I Have a Dream” speech in the nation’s capital.
Take a high-pressure job, add in high-performance expectations, season with continual threats from hackers looking to steal your company’s electronic assets, and you have a sure-fire recipe for burnout. The list of things that keep chief information security officers awake at night—and some of them still in the office with their sleeves rolled up—are legion. That leads to pressured lives and high turnover rates due to job burnout.
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".
