As mbg's founder and CEO, Jason Wachob outlined in his recent You. We. All. mission statement, 2017 so far has been besieged with worry. With the incredible ups of life often come downs, there are highs and lows, peaks and valleys. It’s when the lows seem more pronounced, like they feel to many now, that we find special comfort in our practices, lean heavily on one another and our communities, and give thanks for the backbone of wellness and mindfulness that we've spent time cultivating.
With the crowd energized and open, mbg founder & CEO Jason Wachob took the stage to introduce Samantha Boardman. They talkedabout re-framing positivity, and about looking at anger as information that allows us to understand ourselves more deeply. Gratitude, too, was reexamined through the lens of You. We. All., mbg's new mantra: "I'm a big believer in gratitude, but recently it's become all about me, myself, and I sometimes.
I didn't post something the first day of the #metoo campaign. I didn't post one the second day. My thought was, "I'm a woman; of course everyone knows I've experienced this; what's the point?" But slowly, the hashtag gained momentum, and strong women everywhere were sharing their stories, often for the first time. My personal stories rang eerily familiar: an attack in college, a groping on the subway, a boss in my 20s with a file in HR a mile high who would not be fired.
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".
