Leaving aside for now the question of whether the appearance this week of such terms as “ICO” and “blockchain” in a “Dilbert” cartoon signals that the entire cryptocurrency craze has jumped the shark, it’s worth noting that, even after Frame 3 of the strip, the Pointy-haired Boss character remains puzzled. Enter MarketWatch’s Shawn Langlois, who — jinx!
With the final formal bids hitting Jeff Bezos’s desk Thursday, we may not know for some time, if ever, which cities have responded to Amazon’s solicitation in September of proposals for the location of its second headquarters, dubbed “HQ2.” Suffice it to say that most of the municipalities meeting Bezos and company’s stated criteria, and some falling short, have expressed at least provisional interest in attracting the planned 50,000 jobs, their $100,000 typical salary and the $5 billion...
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday that the league's position remains that players should stand on the sideline during the pregame playing of the U.S.'s national anthem but will not revise its manual to require standing. In a televised New York news conference after a meeting with league owners, the commissioner suggested players directly involved in the protest of allegedly racially biased policing tactics and other forms of systemic racism now number less than 10.
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".
