A US hunting tourist has provoked an online backlash after posting photos of herself with several dead animals in South Africa. Sabrina Corgatelli, a senior accountant and hunting enthusiast from Idaho, posted pictures on her Facebook page of herself with animals including a giraffe that she shot dead. Ms Corgatelli has been posting hunting pictures from Old Days Safari park in South Africa on social media since July and has told her "haters" that there is more to come.
The toilet is not the dirtiest place on an aeroplane, a new study published by Travelmath has revealed. Microbiologists took bacterial samples from five airports and four flights run by two major airlines, and used the median of the results from each location to calculate the dirtiest places to touch. Flush buttons on plane toilets were found to have on average 265 CFU (colony-forming units) per square inch.
Newly released images show former President George Bush and his senior staff in the Emergency Operations Centre in Washington following the attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon in 2001. The staff, including the former Secretary of State Colin Powell, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, and vice-President Dick Cheney, are shown in the secure basement. The Emergency Operations Centre is a bunker under the east wing of the White House which was built to withstand a nuclear attack.
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".
