NEW YORK — As the risk of resistance to antibiotics and other drugs continues to worsen, efforts to find solutions for antimicrobial resistance are taking new forms. Increasing levels of AMR — a result of the misuse of drugs, poor-quality medication and improper prescriptions, among other factors — is a threat not only to people’s health, but also to the global economy, poverty levels, and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
UNITED NATIONS — United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres paid tribute on Friday to fallen U.N. colleagues and humanitarian workers for World Humanitarian Day, while calling for states to uphold international law for civilian protection in conflict zones. “Every civilian has a right to safety and protection. We must all do everything we can to deliver on this right,” he said on Friday, speaking in the U.N. Headquarters lobby one day before the official commemoration.
NEW YORK — China is home to the second largest percentage of the world’s billionaires, but philanthropy there remains a relatively new, emerging trend. And yet, while China’s total charitable giving is a small fraction of the money generated in Europe or the United States, according to United Nations estimates, donations from top philanthropists in China have tripled from 2010 to 2016, reaching $4.6 billion, according to a recent study by Harvard University and Swiss bank UBS.
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".
