Entrepreneur John James wants to develop more e-commerce talent in Northwest Arkansas, and he’s putting some skin in the game to do so. James has turned over operations of an e-commerce business he owns to University of Arkansas students Tucker Partridge (senior, Benton), Ryan Richardson (junior, Denver) and Nick Beyer (senior, Springdale). They are running Scrubshopper.com, an online retailer of medical scrubs with more than $1 million in annual revenue.
Dr. Regina Thurman is the medical director of Optimal Pain and Wellness in Fayetteville, specializing in using wide-ranging approaches to pain management. She was appointed in August to be board chairman of the newly formed Arkansas Medical Marijuana Association (AMMA), whose mission is to promote the interests of the medical marijuana industry throughout the state. Arkansas legalized medical marijuana, or cannabis, in the November 2016 general election.
A business idea sprouted in Springdale by U.S. military veterans has earned the owners a $25,000 business grant. Vet Veggies, a fresh vegetables concept, was one of three winners announced recently by national restaurant chain Bob Evans Farms. The award is part of the Ohio-based company’s Heroes to CEOs contest, a grant competition developed in partnership with The Mission Continues, a national nonprofit organization that empowers veterans who are adjusting to life at home.
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".
