It's a scenic view from Lapland. There's a faint glow on the dark horizon and a quaint snow-covered cottage. Then it all lights up like daytime. Off to the side, a streak of light appears. The footage comes from an aurora borealis livecam that coincidentally caught sight of a blazing meteor. The livecam is hosted by Finland's Aurora Service Tours, a tour company specializing in trips to see the northern lights.
The Don Juan Pond is unlike any you've ever seen. It's ankle deep and lives in a low valley in a brutally cold and dry area of Antarctica where it never rains (and only rarely snows). NASA describes it as "the world's saltiest body of water." New NASA-funded research is mining the pond's fascinating secrets and could have implications for our understanding of water, and possible microbial life, on Mars.
If you've ever wanted to follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs, then you would need to book a trip to France where researchers have discovered the world's longest sauropod trackway. The epic path covers nearly 500 feet (150 meters) of massive dino foot impressions. Sauropods were huge herbivore dinosaurs with long necks. Researchers first discovered the sauropod tracks in 2009 in the village of Plagne, which is located in France's Jura Mountains.
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".
