Remember the days when diners and investors alike fell head over heels for fast-casual restaurants like Chipotle? Now the company barely has any good news to share and just posted profit that fell far short of expectations. On the other side of the fast-food spectrum, things are looking up. McDonald’s says it’s finally seeing more customers coming through the door. The company has a plan to lure back even more diners: a new value menu with items available for $1, $2 and $3.
Mecca, Madina and “Neom” might soon be the most popular cities in Saudi Arabia. The kingdom is trying to wean itself off oil and build up treasures elsewhere. As part of a plan called “Vision 2030,” the government is spending $80 billion to revamp Mecca so it can host more pilgrims for the annual Hajj. Now Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has announced plans to build a new city on the Red Sea coast that promises to be like no other in the kingdom.
Wall Street firms are pushing to develop software that can suggest trades and structure complex hedges, long the domain of stock pickers and derivatives sales staff. Firms are also experimenting with automated analysis of legal documents. Some investors and executives have been predicting major job losses once people are replaced. Bloomberg’s Saijel Kishan, Hugh Son and Mira Rojanasakul mapped out exactly which jobs are vulnerable to being replaced by computers—and when.
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".
