Two hot topics in San Antonio's business community - commercial real estate and solar power - will be center stage next week during separate panel discussions featuring leaders in those industries. Both events are part of our Business Pulse News Event series, a recurring program that we're launching this year in which the newsroom will come out from behind our notebooks and laptops to moderate dialogue on timely and relevant topics in our business community.
I always enjoy the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's annual gala. Those folks really know how to throw a party for more than 1,600 of their closest friends. This year's event was no different, replete with entertainment, catching up with friends, making new ones and inspirational words, including those from Hollywood songwriter and composer Germaine Franco, who received the Chamber's Empresario for Equity Award.
By Tony Quesada – Editor-in-Chief, San Antonio Business Journal Feb 13, 2018, 1:25pm CST The CEO of one of the largest solar companies in the United States will join a San Antonio Business Journal event on the state of that industry, including the impact of new tariffs imposed by the Trump administration. Sunnova Energy Corp. CEO John Berger will give the keynote address for "Solar Industry Outlook 2018," a Business Pulse news 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 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".
