Forget the signature V-neck sweater, black turtleneck and trousers. Yesterday Oracle CTO Larry Ellison donned a new uniform of polo shirt, beat up blue jeans and running shoes to share a message with the masses. There was also a clicker involved, but we'll get to that later.
Cloudera’s (NYSE:CLDR) initial public offering didn’t go so well. Regardless, the company best known for its big-data crushing prowess is preparing to go at it again. On Friday the Palo Alto, Calif.-based firm filed form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a follow-on offering. The company says it will use the proceeds to pay taxes on employee stock pay. It’s worth asking, is this something they didn’t anticipate or a matter of poor planning?
Most marketers dream of delivering a winning presentation, fluent with clever jargon, flashy PowerPoint slides and a conference room full of deal makers signaling, “Yes, I’m in.”That was not the case for Morra Aarons-Mele. Although she did all of the hard work to create her presentations, she hadn’t always stood in the spotlight she had earned. “I was too anxious,” says the author of “Hiding in the Bathroom” (out Sept. 26, HarperCollins).
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".
