It has been barely a month since the ransomware known as WannaCry has been averted. However, a new threat has already appeared and is unfolding its wings even as we speak. The new attack also seems to ride on the shoulders of a ransomware and is attacking businesses and governments — Petya.The ransomware seems to have its center in Ukraine. However, reports suggest that it is affecting computers as far away as Spain, France, Russia and India.
Things continue to worsen for Uber, as it gets embroiled in yet another lawsuit. Following claims of harassment at the workplace, over twenty people were made to leave the company. Following this, several other problems came to light including a case just a few weeks ago, where an Indian woman filed a lawsuit after it came to light that her medical records were illegally obtained by Uber’s president of business Eric Alexander. These records were pertinent to molestation by an Uber driver.
Lockheed Martin has reportedly purchased significant stakes in U.S. nanosatellite company Terran Orbital. The investment comes even as corporations with interests in the space industry, are quickly gobbling up startups with the technology that can boost their efforts.Interestingly, Lockheed’s stakes in Terran come in exchange for cash and in-kind services. I assume that Lockheed has given Terran a particular figure as to the value of services it can avail.
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".
