One of the nation’s only gigabit networks is now the communications force behind a new smart grid completed last week in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The utility company EPB installed its last IntelliRupter last Tuesday to finish automating its power distribution network. That means if the community suffers a power outage anywhere, EPB can re-route power automatically to continue the flow of electricity.
Google is taking YouTube TV to new markets. The $35-per-month OTT service is heading to ten new cities, including Dallas-Fort Worth; Washington, D.C.; Houston; Atlanta; Phoenix; Detroit; Minneapolis-St. Paul; Miami-Fort Lauderdale; Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne; and Charlotte. The expansion comes after the launch of YouTube TV in April in five initial markets: New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago and Philadelphia. (See YouTube TV Is Here... in 5 Markets.)
One of the questions weighing on my mind as the long regulatory review of AT&T's proposed buyout of Time Warner drags on is whether this year's media mega-merger is different in any substantial way from Comcast's acquisition of NBCUniversal way back in 2011. If yes, then it should be closely evaluated. But if no, then AT&T should receive the same regulatory treatment that Comcast did when it brought NBCU in house. Right? First, let's look at how the two transactions compare.
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".
