As the sun peeked out on the horizon Monday morning, women across San Antonio rolled out of bed a little earlier than normal to take advantage of an opportunity for professional development. The San Antonio Business Journal hosted Bizwomen Mentoring Monday, in its fifth year, at The DoSeum and brought together more than 160 students and professional women either embarking on new careers or early in their careers with 40 of San Antonio's most powerful women leaders.
Ina Minjarez and Leo Gomez pause with a smile when asked how they met. Perhaps it's because their first encounter - which occurred at the British-themed Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in North Central San Antonio, a place to be seen in its heyday - didn't go far. Leo, then recently divorced, spotted her and expressed interest. But Ina, who described herself at that time as a "baby prosecutor, newly licensed," wasn't interested. The second time they met at a fundraiser for Joe Farias.
Two of the few things that Debbie and Marty Roos don't agree on are the beach and whether their children should attend college in Texas. As an Omaha, Nebraska, native, Debbie's not a big fan of sand. And she believes her children should get out and see other places while going to school. After all, education - more specifically, Trinity University - is what brought her to San Antonio.
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".
