Second chances can be hard to come by. Sometimes we don’t believe we deserve the second chances we are offered. More often than not, though, there just isn’t the opportunity to fix what may have gone wrong. It’s difficult to find room in business for second chances. Michael Dadashi is hoping to change that. The Founder and CEO of MHD Enterprises, a fast-growing e-waste recycling company, knows a thing or two about second chances.
There are a myriad of issues the green building sector is trying to combat, but greenhouse gas emissions is one of the more daunting hurdles to overcome. Specifically in the building industry, emissions are one of the biggest infractions to sustainable building. Around 35 percent of carbon emissions in Canada are just from cooling, heating, and lighting buildings, and the gas emissions from the build sector exceed 50 percent.
When a few friends founded Paige Electric in 1958, the company was not employee owned; rather it was a limited partnership with stock split between only a few. After some time in business, however, Lou Grotta converted his business strategy to allow employees to buy stock through a loan program. The generosity didn’t end there. At a holiday party, Grotta handed over the loan he had given his employees to buy stock in the company, and told them to throw it away.
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".
