Donald Trump getting snubbed at the world stage is not something new. Remember the time when the Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda deliberately avoided his handshake? However, the most recent of his snubs, this time involving Japan First Lady Akie Abe, is cracking up the internetJapan's First Lady Akie Abe very cleverly avoided talking to US President Donald Trump by pretending to not know English during the dinner at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
A tragic incident of shipwreck has left 27 dead and 54 others missing on the Kasai River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The administrator of the territory, Jacques Mbila, said that overloading and highly inebriated conditions of drivers were the reasons for the mishap. "I confirm that we have 27 dead bodies. The sinking occurred in front of Idiofa," said the officer, as reported by IANS.
Conspiracy theorists have recently concluded that Saturn's third largest moon, Iapetus, is not a mere natural satellite but an icy cold orb created by an intelligent extra-terrestrial civilisation. They came to this conclusion because of the unusual features of the celestial body discovered by Giovanni Domenico Cassini, an Italian astronomer, in October 1671. Though scientists don't buy this alien argument, they also cannot come up with a proper explanation to justify the unique features.
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".
