Hi team! Just your insanely rich CEO checking in! I wanted to mention something at our end of year meeting. I’m going to sound like a broken record here, but I just wanted to say that I am an absolute freak for unions. My closest friends and family can vouch for this: I have been a MASSIVE collective bargaining lover for years. Can’t get enough of the stuff! I am literally obsessed with the idea of unionized labor — it is so dope! The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, my dudes!
In the midst of all the intensely bad, unpredictable, and endless days of 2017, there remains one reliable, universal constant: animals will get in trouble with the police and it will always be very thrilling. From the "Brooklyn cow" who captivated our hearts to "stuck raccoon" and every huge lost hog in between, the year has been full of animals behaving badly. Let these stories be a reminder to you: stay vigilant. The animals are getting smarter, and learning how to do more crimes every day.
Bill de Blasio may have easily won his second term as New York City's mayor last month with more than 66 percent of the vote, but his run wasn't entirely uncontested. The official write-in results are in, thanks to the NYC Board of Elections, and there were quite a few public figures who came within just, you know, a few hundred thousand votes of becoming the Big Apple's new mayor.
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".
