Last August, I looked around my daughter's preschool and had a startling realization: I'm a bad mom. And not the fun, Mila Kunis-type of bad mom. No, I was a mom who had missed the boat. The majority of the students in my daughter's class were suddenly gone, having transferred from our lovely little preschool to attend "big school." She was left with a handful of classmates, and, as the school year has continued, others have left, ostensibly when spots opened up at the area's private schools.

It's fine to ask your friends or your mom or someone you met through a dating app, but here at Memphis Business Journal, we'd like to suggest a better way: Mentoring Monday.
As part of MBJ's mission to bring our readers the information they need to make business and professional decisions, we often take you inside for a first look at new restaurants, office renovations and large building projects. We also provide salary information for public company execs, government employees and entire professions. And, often, we do it in slideshow format, so it's easy to scroll through and see the information all broken up in the most logical - and visual - way possible.
This isn't typically my thing, but here's the latest in the @memgrizz buy/sell saga. By this time next year, the owner could be Robert Pera or it could be Steve Kaplan and Daniel Straus. http://bizj.us/1pj3tt
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".
