2017 was a mixed bag for technology and business. We got hacked — a lot. We learned we had to take social media seriously — like Russia does. We lost “net neutrality.” We learned about bitcoin (mostly from “Grey’s Anatomy”). But we also saw incredible advancements in health care, including gene therapies, electronic records, and telemedicine. Self-driving cars became a functional reality. And data — exabytes of it — positioned itself at the top of the tech food chain.
Are the left and right hands working together? Do they have no clue what the other is doing? Or could it be possible they don’t see the contradictory messages their oppositional actions can be sending? The hands belong to the government. Caught in the middle? Everyone with a Social Security number (SSN), or any business with employees. Although flying below the radar, there are two distinct and divergent efforts related to SSNs going on in the legislative branch.
Fans of the long-running medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” were treated to a pretty frightening scenario recently when the hospital was taken over by hackers seeking a Hollywood-sized ransom to release access to blood banks, medical records, and control of medical devices. Several friends have looked for reassurance from me, asking, “That can’t really happen, right?”Well, actually, it can. And it’s not just possible, but actually likely.
so, long story short, i accidentally stole a fiestaware plate from Kohl's. There was a set on clearance with a missing plate and someone else put a plate with the set. Now I'm convinced I have bad karma until my mom returns the plate on Monday. Please forgive me @Kohls 🙏🏼
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".
