The Princeton Review recently released its “The Best 382 Colleges” guide for 2018. My school, George Washington, fell in the rankings of most politically active universities. For the past four years, it was first. This year, it ranked 10th, and Columbia University was No. 1. Knowing how politically involved my campus can be, I feel sorry for students at universities that are even more insanely politically active.
Sixty-five percent of children entering primary schools today worldwide will eventually work in jobs that don’t exist yet, according to the World Economic Forum. That also means that students currently in college will enter a work environment that will barely be recognizable when they reach their peak earning potential age in their late 30s. The types of positions in the job market are changing more quickly than ever, and we need to learn how to prepare students for jobs that don’t yet exist.
What do the finish line of a 5K, a graduation celebration and a gender-reveal party have in common? Balloons, and lots of them. But balloons, specifically those filled with gases that are lighter than air like helium, can damage wildlife and power lines. Releasing a balloon is essentially littering, no different from throwing a plastic bottle onto a highway or spitting out gum out on a nature trail. The balloons kill creatures on land and in the seas as they’re easily mistaken as prey.
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".
