Next time you’re in Russia, watching wargames, we suggest keeping your distance, for you might be mistaken for a target. Some civilians found that out the hard way. Here’s what happened. During the Zapad 2017 military exercise, what appears to be a pair of Ka-50 Black Shark attack helicopters, are seen flying low towards the target while a man casually walks into the frame. A second later. Boom! According to reports, the incident took place at Luzhsky range near St. Petersburg earlier this week.
While most people prefer to blow their own trumpet, some live out their lives in obscurity. They never get their due in time and the world goes on about without realising their contribution. One such man was Lieutenant Colonel Stanislav Petrov of the Soviet Army. On midnight of 26 September, 1983 Petrov was on duty at an early missile warning system on the outskirts of Moscow. This was a time of tensions between USSR and USA and the threat of nuclear war was very real.
McLaren is a name synonymous with motor racing. The company has an enviable record in Formula 1 and is also famous for the building one of the world’s fastest car for the F1. Recently, the company has built the P1 hypercar. What the company isn’t known for is its medical solutions. McLaren Applied Technologies used cutting-edge carbon fibre construction techniques to come up with a unique solution for a wealthy customer who is suffering from a weak rib cage and sternum.
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".
