I'm a senior science writer for Climate Central, focusing on coverage of extreme weather and climate change. Prior to working with Climate Central, I was a reporter for Congressional Quarterly and Greenwire/E&E Daily, and a longtime blogger for Washington Post's "Capital Weather Gang" blog. I...
The lawsuit is bold, and few legal observers thought it would get this far. But for the 21 young plaintiffs who are suing the federal government for its failure to protect them — and all of us — from global warming-related harm, it's an open and shut case involving basic constitutional rights. The case, known as Juliana v. United States, had been scheduled to go to trial in Oregon beginning on Feb. 5.
Oh, how fast those laptops grow. Microsoft's pre-eminent workstation is back, and it's literally bigger than ever. The Surface Book 2 ($2,499 to start; $3,299 as tested) comes in a 15-inch size and has a few new additions, including an 8-Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU and, finally, USB Type-C. While it's aesthetically quite similar to the old, 13-inch model, the under-the-hood improvements make it superfast, and the new size allows more room to create and play.
For the first time, neurologists claim to have diagnosed a degenerative brain disease associated with repetitive head injuries in a living veteran of the National Football League (NFL). The finding, along with other recent research, could pave the way toward early diagnosis and effective treatments to reduce the severity of the illness or prevent it altogether.
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".
