Raytheon has opened a new facility in the Sandia Science and Technology Park in Albuquerque, NM, in a move that bolsters its operations working on range monitoring and telemetry systems. The 72,000-square-foot building will add 60 high-tech manufacturing jobs over six years, the company said. Already, Raytheon said it employs more than 350 workers at facilities in Albuquerque and Diné, NM. The new site marks the third Raytheon facility in Albuquerque. -- Marjorie Censer
KeyW was never going to be another forgettable Washington-area contractor. Founder Len Moodispaw set out to ensure it wouldn't blend in, naming it after Key West, FL, forever associated with his beloved Jimmy Buffett, and making its logo a parrot. Moodispaw adorned his office with Buffett memorabilia and used Buffett songs as office hold music. The company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission -- which are normally dry and serious legal documents -- were playful.
Two large services contractors have filed protests over the Defense Information Systems Agency's ENCORE III solicitation, which has generated controversy by using the lowest-price, technically acceptable contracting approach. The sprawling, multiple-award ENCORE III contract -- which could be worth up to $17.5 billion over 10 years -- is meant to help the Pentagon and other federal agencies migrate to a new DOD information network.
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".
