Julia Dunn is about to start her fifth year anchoring CBS6’s morning newscast. Originally, she coanchored with the late Ed O’Brien. Currently, Jack Lamson and Melissa Lee sit at the desk alongside her each weekday starting at 4:30 a.m. Many of you follow her outdoorsy adventures on Facebook – but there’s other things about this Massachusetts native you may not have known. Also, you can follow her on Facebook or Twitter. 1. I play ice hockey, most recently in a local women’s league.
Each year, there are those “must have” Christmas toys and each year entrepreneurs, for lack of a better word, scoop up a whole bunch of the hot item early in the shopping season and resell it online — sometimes for as much as 10 times the original cost. For years, I defended these sellers, citing supply and demand. Anything — be it a shirt a tool even a house — is only worth what those in the market are willing to pay.
KGB on GNA: Have you been sexually harassed at work? (Karsten Moran/The New York Times) ORG XMIT: XNYT5 On this week’s WGNA segment we talked about sexual harassment in the workplace and a poll that showed that while a large percentage of people have been harassed, about a third said they were not bothered at all. That number was incredibly surprising. Listen to the segment below and see the original post (and poll) here.
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".
