From sexual harassment allegations to being sued by Google for allegedly stealing self-driving tech secrets, one thing is very clear: Uber has some big problems. Uber is facing these controversies without a CMO, CFO, COO and — with Travis Kalanick’s departure — CEO, which only adds to the company’s systemic operational, cultural and management issues. And amid Uber’s most difficult and revealing months ever, the company is trying to penetrate a brand new market: upstate New York.
From President Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin to a television shopping merger, here are some important national news stories to catch up on from the past week. Hamburg, Germany, has been the site of several protests over the past weekend as G-20 leaders convened to discuss several important world issues. Anti-globalization activists took to the streets outside of the summit, some lighting fires and engaging in standoffs with police.
Lying on that familiar but weirdly-textured wax paper on an exam table, I felt the blade of a scalpel slicing out a small area of skin on the edge of the bottom of my foot. The sensation was unusual — although painless, from the shot of Novocaine injected just a few minutes prior. I felt the tactile details of the procedure, like the pieces of skin pulling together as the doctor sewed a needle and thread through the incision.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
