Cornell has been called the first truly American university by virtue of founder Ezra Cornell’s vision of “an institution where any person,” regardless of race, gender, background or means, “can find instruction in any study.” The idea was positively revolutionary at Cornell’s founding in April 1865, and revolutionary is none too strong a descriptor for Cornell’s newest and perhaps boldest idea: a “transformative” campus in the heart of New York City, with its sights set on a tech-oriented,...
Seven years ago, Dan Huttenlocher was professor and dean of Computing and Information Science at Cornell. But his world forever changed at the beginning of 2011 when the New York City Economic Development Corp., under the leadership of then Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, sought proposals to develop an applied sciences and engineering campus in the city.
More than 30 project teams involving undergraduate, graduate and professional students presented posters and answered questions from curious attendees during the Festival of Scholarship, part of the two-day celebration of the inauguration of Martha E. Pollack as Cornell University’s 14th president. The festival was held Aug. 24 in the Physical Sciences Building Atrium. Among the curious was the president herself, who mingled and conversed with the student presenters during the 90-minute event.
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".
