Business owners and top executives from companies across Greater Cincinnati were on hand Thursday night for the Courier's 2018 Book of Lists Gala at Jack Cincinnati Casino. The event celebrates the businesses that ranked on our weekly lists of top 25 companies, which are put together by data editor Hannah McCartney. At the end of the year, those lists from our weekly editions are compiled into one handy book for our subscribers.
What was your first job? In between my freshman and sophomore years of high school I worked my first two jobs - scooping ice cream at Graeter's and working in the kitchen at Zip's Cafe. What do you wish you had known in college? That life is a marathon, not a sprint. It is OK to have a five-, 10- and 15-year plan, and it is OK to reassess and changes those plans if needed. How do you think your employees or co-workers would describe you?
Dozens of Greater Cincinnati's most influential businesswomen have signed on for the Courier's annual Mentoring Monday on Feb. 12 at Xavier University's Cintas Center. The event connects women in a range of industries across the region, beginning with a networking breakfast and a short program by a keynote speaker. The attendees then break into one-on-one sessions for seven-minute conversations - think of it as a kind of "speed coaching."
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".
