About 71 percent of the earth surface is covered by water. So clearly there’s enough space for all the ships in the world. Apparently not. Here’s a reference picture. Last Saturday, a US Navy Destroyer, the USS Fitzgerald collided with a Philippines-flagged container ship ACX Crystal. The starboard side (right side) was damaged when ACX Crystal’s bow penetrated Fitzgerald’s hull below the waterline. Several compartments were flooded and seven hands were lost.
A vacation or business trip may be exciting, but travelling itself is quite mundane. You fly to a city, stay at the hotel and fly back. This might change in the future, though, if architecture student Brandan Siebrecht’s concept sees the light of day. It will require any traveller to just book a hotel room -- that's it! His concept 'Hyperloop Hotel’ picks up on Elon Musk’s Hyperloop transportation system and takes it a step ahead.
The way India lost in the final of the Champions Trophy yesterday came like a slow death played over seven hours. The bowlers looked out of sorts, fielding was well below par and the batting was horrendous. Pakistan on the other hand played a fearless brand of cricket and were the better team. And while Twitter has been full of condolences and extreme reactions, Anand Mahindra has a saner view.
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".
