Earlier this week, we told you about a Wall Street Journal ranking of cities where Amazon might choose to stick its second headquarters. But that WSJ article was behind a paywall, so all we could do was show you this graphic: Okay, Dallas is “looking good.” But what do all those colors mean? Why do we have so little green pie compared to Minneapolis? Why does Chicago kill us with the red pie? Well, I bought a subscription to the WSJ and then went and looked for the legend that explains those colors.
Unlike in Dallas, where some have pounded the drums ceaselessly about just how marvelous that AT&T-Time Warner merger would be, there’s a different view in Southern California (where I’m attending a business conference this week).
Neiman Marcus named a new vice president and chief information security officer after losing its first CISO five months ago. The company has hired Shamoun Siddiqui, former vice president and CISO oat Nationstar Mortgage, to lead cybersecurity and compliance strategies for the Dallas-based retailer. Siddiqui reports to Sarah Miller, senior vice president and chief information officer, and replaces Sarah Hendrickson, who left the company in June.
To everyone who jogs and rides around White Rock after dark without a light: I fear that one night I will be pedaling home from work, with my tired, old eyes, and you and I will meet. It will not be a joyful occasion.
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".
