We are on the verge of unlocking the mysteries of the human brain: 2018 will see a critical mass of researchers, technologists, and entrepreneurs coalesce around that mission. “The frontier for the next decade is definitely human brain research and augmentation of human intelligence,” Peter Diamandis, executive chairman of the X Prize Foundation, told NBC News.
Ali Velshi has covered the news for over 25 years, working as a journalist at CNN, Al Jazeera America, and currently NBC and MSNBC. But within the past two weeks Velshi has become the subject of the news. He is rumored to be a possible replacement for fired NBC anchor Matt Lauer and was singled out for his diverse background by the lawyer for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
America's health care system is the envy of the world. Yet, Americans pay more for health care than their peers in other developed countries, but end up with health outcomes that are less.
In keeping with this year’s theme of “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World”, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, I’ll moderate a panel at 1130ET/1730CET, called “The Weaponization of Culture”. It will stream here: http://wef.ch/2EOrdi5#weaponizationofculture#wef18
I’m in Davos for #WEF18. Ahead of my Tuesday panel, “The Weaponization of Culture”, I’d like to know what effect you think culture has on politics? @wef
- Major impact
- Some impact
- No impact
So @SRuhle is going to hold down the fort while I’m in Davos for #wef18, where the theme is “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World”. Check out some of the sessions in Davos that will tackle this subject #wef18http://wef.ch/am18 [wef.ch] @wef
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".
