Samsung on Tuesday posted a record profit and also announced the appointment of three new CEOs in its co-CEO structure. One CEO will oversee components, another will run consumer electronics and the third will lead mobile and IT. Samsung Electronics CEO Kwon Oh-hyun stepped down in early October, making way for his three replacements. The appointments are effective immediately. (The Verge)Under Armour’s shares peaked at $54.70 in early 2015 but have fallen 75% over a two-year slide.
In September-October 2017, I did a 5-week internship in Barcelona, working in the non-governmental research organisation Centre Delàs d’Estudis per la Pau, obtained through the organisation Connect-123. The office I worked in consists of a team of around 15 people. The work involves writing reports for the EU and for the Spanish government, as well as investigating state expenditure on armaments and the military budget. Every report written is translated from Spanish into both Catalan and English.
Retail’s trend toward connected purchasing has been steady. Amazon, for one, is full bore on the trend and announced an array of new devices in the Echo line of products last week. These link consumers to quick and convenient purchasing through their Amazon account, while still more integrated devices, such as GE and Samsung’s connected refrigerators, allow grocery purchases right from the appliance.
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".
