One of the most important people in all of sports, Leigh Steinberg, explains the way in which he uses innovation to achieve success and progress in the sports industry. Steinberg, one of the most successful sports agents in America, is constantly looking for new ways to connect fans to their favorite sports teams and athlete. Additionally, he helps athletes become role models and creates deals and contracts the benefit larger organizations and charities.
What are the top innovations catching my eye today? I do have a laundry list. But I'll just share a couple that are top of mind in just the past hour. First, Ra Medical Systems' @Dean Irwin and team have created a laser that unclogs arteries with so far no trauma to the vessel. It's an excimer laser like what they use for LASIK eye surgery and they've finally figured out how to channel that energy into a catheter that can navigate the twists and turns of our vasculature. It's brilliant.
There are more than 178,000 startups emerging each month around the world and I'm willing to bet that 175,000 of them are some sort of cybersecurity company as NOONE I've seen thus far has the holy grail! Cybersecurity is defined by its evolving nature. Both sides - the threat actors and the defenders - constantly innovate. In part, it's why there are so many security vendors - there's a lot of ground to cover and new threats appear every day.
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".
