Prior to a recent renovation and expansion, visitors to the 7,000-square-foot AOS offices at 400 Poydras St. would likely have described the space as polished and modern with design elements emphasizing creativity and collaboration. Post six-week renovation and now topping out at 10,280 square feet, however, it’s all of that and more. AOS works with architectural and design companies to create office systems, storage solutions and serve as a resource for products and furniture.
Despite this being 2017 and things such as smoking and drinking being frowned upon in the workplace, when most of us think of a newspaper newsroom we get the mental image of a smoky space filled with reporters talking fast and typing faster over the din of chatter, ringing phones, typewriters and slamming doors.
We’ve all been on the receiving end of what we perceive as an impolite email. Perhaps we got off on the wrong foot with the sender. Maybe the person on the other end is having a bad day. It’s also possible that we did something to offend the other person and they are lashing out (rightfully or not). Whether or not the reason is justifiable, a snappish message can still come as a surprise and leave us stewing and wondering how to respond, if at all.
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".
