There is no end to the call for innovation. The time we make the call our own, it pushes us towards new spaces. When is the right time to act? Once we are prepared to do so carefully and not hastily. And if the action must be rapid, never fail to act appropriately, that is to say in depth. The dispatch of efficient and effective business, and the slowness of careful reflection: this is the road map for innovation.
Today when we talk about business clusters, we’re usually talking about the technology industry in Silicon Valley, the financial sector in London or New York, or automakers in southern Germany. But clusters go back much further than these examples. An example of a very long-lived cluster is Bologna, Italy. Hundreds of years before the Industrial Revolution, Bolognese textile makers figured out how to use hydraulic machinery to automate the production of silk.
History is a messenger of memory. Its messages include the unique academic syllabus of St Patrick College in Maynooth, Ireland, which was at the origin of Maynooth University founded in 1997. It is a lasting heritage on which universities of the third millennium should rely to build they future. To avert the risk of sinking into the darkness at the bottom of the well of specialization, transculturation and anti-discipline play a major role.
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".
