An aspiring medical marijuana grower dropped its lawsuit Wednesday against the Pennsylvania Department of Health, according to court documents. The company, BrightStar Biomedics LLC, did not win one of the 12 permits awarded by the state in June to grow cannabis. BrightStar sued last month, demanding that the state program revoke a permit awarded to a rival, Pennsylvania Medical Solutions, because PMS's parent company was under criminal investigation in Minnesota.
If your organization is looking to shift more of its technology resources to the cloud, you are not alone. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), 50 percent of every company's IT infrastructure is expected to be cloud-based by 2018. But before you go too far, it is wise to take steps to ensure you and your IT team agree on where you are going and how to get there. Here are some ways to begin a productive dialogue with your CIO or IT executive. 1.
Cisco recently predicted that more than 80 percent of all data center traffic will be cloud-based within the next three years. In 2Q17, all major cloud vendors performed well. In fact, Amazon Web Services posted an impressive 42 percent increase in revenue during the first quarter of 2017. These numbers alone suggest it isn’t a stretch to call the approaching cloud migration wave a tsunami.
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".
