Note: I placed my portion of this post at the beginning to outline the events that led to this discussion of the Bike Talk panel. But be sure to check out Streetsblog Chicago reporter Lynda Lopez’s thoughts on the topic in the second half of the article, and feel free to just skip ahead to Lynda’s section if you’re already familiar with the subject – I think her portion is more essential than mine, and it also addresses two upcoming forums on Transit-Oriented Development .
"Wonder Woman" hits theaters Thursday evening in select cities and then nationwide Friday. And while it's the first modern superhero movie with a woman leading the charge onscreen, it's also the first superhero film with a female director. ABC News spoke to Patty Jenkins in advance of this blockbuster to talk about her love affair with the character, what it means to her to be at the helm of this project, and more.
Employers nationwide are struggling to fill open positions because they can’t find enough skilled workers, and Texas is no exception. Texas State Technical College is narrowing this “skills gap” by supplying the state’s workforce with highly skilled graduates — and it has been doing so for the past 50 years. Since its founding, TSTC has awarded more than 100,000 certificates and associate degrees to graduates across our great state, an impact that has been life-changing and far-reaching.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
