Members of the Bangladeshi Army carry the body of a garment worker following a factory building collapse on April 30. When it comes to labor rights and working conditions, Bangladesh is the new China. And not in a good way. The South Asian nation has been the scene of two major industrial disasters in the past six months. In November, a fire in a factory left 112 garment workers dead; in April, a factory collapsed, killing at least 433 garment workers and injuring many more.
You’ll start reading this story because it’s weird. It’s about a guy who lived by himself in a tent in the woods of Maine for about 27 years. He’d been gone so long that when authorities asked him how many years he’d been in the woods, he responded by asking how long it’d been since the Chernobyl disaster. But then you keep reading. And you realize that this guy, this North Pond Hermit, isn’t just an eccentric recluse.
Talking about salaries, that fundamental measure of what someone’s labor is worth by someone else’s calculation, is usually fraught. Talking about the minimum wage is often harder, especially because low-paying service jobs tend to be more readily available these days than alternative occupations. When fast-food workers staged protests this summer to demand the federal minimum wage be raised from $7.25 to $15 an hour, even sympathetic observers weren’t optimistic about the prospects.
Why Wall Street hasn’t had its ‘#Me Too’ moment yet: “People spend their entire educational and professional career trying to get to this pot of gold, and some guy dropping his drawers is not going to get in the way of that,” says exec @maxabelson@BWhttps://bloom.bg/2CPLxz4
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".
