Ordinarily I’d have plucked something from the news – like the horrible but not unexpected exoneration of the police officer who killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice – to write about this week. But like many of you, as the New Year approaches I’m contemplating life and work in 2016. Of course, one cannot do this effectively without considering what transpired this year, and I’ve gone even farther back than that. I’ve gone all the way back to 2008 when we launched Diversity Executive magazine.
In it, she talks about raising wages across the board and the importance of upskilling talent to coincide with the rise in technology. OK. Career paths, long-term employability and internal leadership development — good stuff. Then she talks about setting an example at the top, why it’s important, and her emphasis on diversity when hiring senior leaders. Then she recounts a recent meeting with suppliers, all of whom were white men.
So Kevin Spacey has been roasting on the bonfire of public opinion this week. His career has been in freefall since the first allegations of abuse with an underage boy came to light. His popular show House of Cards has been shelved, and director Ridley Scott has decreed the soon-to-be-released film “All the Money in the World” will now feature Christopher Plummer in Spacey’s former role as J. Paul Getty. It’s been a festival of pain in Hollywood for weeks now.
CBS Fires Charlie Rose Amid Harassment Charges; CBS has put a line in the sand: We prize our employees safety and right to work without harassment over prestige and legacy. Kudos. #KellyeMediahttps://t.co/lTxpSVxSeX
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".
