New York state budgeted $87 million to fund its new Excelsior Scholarship this year so that roughly 23,000 students could attend public colleges tuition-free. The wrinkle: More than three times as many students applied for the award. The state says there won’t be a shortfall in the end. It expects some of the applicants won’t be eligible...
Two high-profile coding boot camps have announced plans to close in as many weeks, signaling a shakeout in the fast-growing market that aims to turn liberal-arts graduates and others into entry-level computer programmers. The Iron Yard, a coding boot camp backed by funding from the parent company of University of Phoenix, said Thursday it will shutter after teaching its current cohort of students. Kaplan Inc.-owned Dev Bootcamp said...
The campus of Barber-Scotia College in Concord, N.C., has been on the market for five years. As long as is for sale, other historically black schools that have borrowed through the U.S. Education Department’s HBCU Capital Financing Program are responsible for paying down Barber-Scotia’s past-due loan. Barber-Scotia took out a $7 million loan in 2000 to renovate a student-housing facility. The school lost its accreditation in...
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
