After spending a semester as the Tyler School of Art Parliament representative in Spring 2017, Jacob Kurtz wanted to run for a higher position — the role of Parliamentarian. But first, he had a decision to make. “The hardest thing I had to deal with is, if I take this role, I can’t necessarily make my stances public, and I can’t be advocating the same way I was previously,” he said. Kurtz was appointed as Parliamentarian last April for Parliament, Temple Student Government’s representative branch.
At Technical.ly, we cover a lot of tech startups and founders who tout constant, rapid evolution. A counterpart to the tech startup resides in a well-established Philadelphia media marketing agency, Harmelin Media. This company is embracing a similar adaptive approach and evolving from its media roots, which started 35 years ago.
In his first two months with the edtech company, Larrow’s team traveled to 10 cities — a tour that included a visit to Orlando, Fla., for the well-regarded Masie Learning Conference. The tone of the company was set from the get-go during the interview process with Practice cofounder Emily Foote, who has been there the whole way, including through this fall’s acquisition by Instructure.
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".
