I’m a recent graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, where I was taught to spurn the Oxford comma and spin stories with a magazine slant. I grew up in Saratoga, California—a sleepy bedroom community devoid of street lights, about 40 miles southeast of San Francisco...
9. In a year, this guy went from janitor to coder for a hot startup Anthony Pegues went from being a custodian at his old middle school to getting hired as an engineer by e-commerce startup MM.LaFleur. That’s all thanks to a 17-week coding bootcamp called Code Bridge, a joint initiative between tech training nonprofit Per Scholas—which offers free IT training to adults with no technical background—and education startup General Assembly.
Almost every morning, I work out or meditate or do yoga. If I go days without meditating, people will feel it in the office for sure. I have a son who gets up at 7 a.m., so I do all that stuff before and then I spend time with him. I like to walk to work. Our office moved a couple of years ago, so I eventually moved to [stay] within walking distance. I use [the time] for phone calls, and I do a lot of walking meetings.
Subscription box service Stitch Fix finally went public today, in what is the first—and only—female-led tech exit of 2017. Its stock is already up 13%, just hours into its first day of trading. Stitch Fix had priced its initial public offering at $15 a share and raised $120 million, putting its valuation at around $1.5 billion. This IPO is atypical for a few reasons, the most obvious being that CEO Katrina Lake is at its helm.
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".
