Leading a small offshore technology team is not easy. Obvious problems include time zone and language differences. These are typical reasons that many organizations ignore the potential savings, but we’ve been doing it for so long that there are many ways to mitigate them. I eliminate the language issue by ensuring that all resources have a basic ability to converse in English and the leads are fluent. I’ve been leading offshore teams since 2003.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings beat Washington 38-30 Sunday, extending their winning streak to five games. Starting quarterback Case Keenum had a very productive game, throwing four touchdown passes. Sunday also marked an emotional return to the sideline for Teddy Bridgewater. The quarterback spent the last year recovering from a devastating knee injury. He suited up as Keenum’s backup, but didn’t play. Bridgewater is back in uniform. But Keenum is hitting his stride.
A head fake in basketball gets your opponent to jump in the air when you feign a shot. Likewise, a head fake in the capital markets gets an executive’s stock price to jump for no reason. Consider a situation where executives are lamenting that their company’s shares are worth more than the bid price. If this continues, they might look for ways to raise the price. Here are some methods. Sometimes, companies announce unexpected share buybacks.
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".
