Even if you remain in business, this is a kind of engine which pumps up the money in your hand. There's no way you can escape that, so one way they did that after they're making the money, they're giving it away. But, I'm asking the question, “Why do we have to have a system where you have to push money in fewer and fewer hands?”This is going on for many years, but in the beginning, it was such a slow-motion process of concentration that nobody paid any attention to it.
Overhauling Higher Ed Should Start by Looking Back America still boasts more elite schools than any other country. But a growing number of schools in other countries — especially in the U.K. and China — are pushing U.S. universities out of the top 200.Read Full Article »
Maybe you saw the headline in The Wall Street Journal: "U.S. Colleges Slip in Global Rankings." America still boasts more elite schools than any other country. But a growing number of schools in other countries — especially in the U.K. and China — are pushing U.S. universities out of the top 200. It shouldn't be all that surprising that what worked in the 20th century doesn't necessarily serve students well in the 21st. So maybe it's time for an overhaul of the American system of higher education.
After ~5 years of iPad ownership, my dear mom learned TODAY from @lauradesmeth and me that she can use it to surf the web. When we asked what she’d been doing with it all this time if she didn’t go online, she replied, “I use it to play my game with the little monkeys.”
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".
