It was a week filled with advocacy and the championing of firm convictions that were mostly noble, except for one that was half-baked, at best. Let’s take a look back, shall we? Kate Middleton continued her efforts to advocate for mental health when she appeared in an important educational video. The Duchess of Cambridge introduced an animated clip produced by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children as part of its “You’re Never Too Young to Talk Mental Health” campaign.
Barn owls have exceptionally good hearing, which helps them locate small prey scuttling about in the grass at night, and their sharp ears may not change as they age. As Helen Briggs reports for the BBC, a new study shows that barn owls—unlike many other animals—maintain their excellent auditory senses well into old age. A team of researchers trained seven hand-raised barn owls to sit on a perch and fly to a second perch when they heard auditory cues.
Scottie Nell Hughes, a Fox News contributor, has filed a lawsuit against the network, claiming that she was raped by anchor Charles Payne and then shunned when she came forward about the alleged assault. According to a report in The New York Times, the lawsuit alleges that Payne, the host of “Making Money” on Fox Business, “pressured” his way into Hughes’ hotel room in 2013 and coerced her into having sexual intercourse.
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".
