A recent post about a trade show in the print industry points out the need to make sure your exhibitors are on board with your event's harassment policy. Given the recent media firestorm around sexual harassment in the workplace, entertainment industry, and among government officials, we’ve decided to put our own industry under the microscope.
The second span of a brand-new, $4-billion bridge just opened over the Hudson River, a short drive from my home in northern New Jersey. Known as the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, it’s the largest project of its kind in the United States, and replaces the rickety, 61-year-old Tappan Zee Bridge. It’s much wider and — with cables strung gracefully from eight soaring white columns — far more aesthetically pleasing. Happily, it will make the often-congested crossing less so for drivers like me.
How an exercise with a collection of images of 'nothing in particular' helped participants generate fresh ideas about their work at a publishers' conference. I attended the inaugural Lane Press Publishers’ Conclave in 2016 and again this year, Oct. 25–27, at The Essex in Essex, Vermont, where around 100 magazine publishers, editors, and creative directors — Lane Press clients (like Convene) and non-clients — explored challenges specific to those in the media and print magazine business today.
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".
