Senator Grace Poe expects to see prompt remedial action by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) to effectively address Metro Rail Transit system woes bugging MRT daily commuters. Poe pressed the DOTr on Thursday to immediately scrutinize the operations of the MRT Line 3 after a train carrying hundreds of passengers got detached while traversing interstation between the Buendia and Ayala stations in Makati City on Thursday’s morning rush hour.
Sen. Grace Poe pinned the blame on the Aquino administration for the recurring problems hounding the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) system even as she prodded the Department of Transportation (DOTr) officials to hasten the improvements in operations. Lamenting the latest accident involving an MRT commuter on Wednesday, Poe warned against long-unattended “structural and technical time bombs” in the train system that put daily commuters at risk.
Senators welcomed on Monday the offer of United States President Donald J. Trump to mediate a settlement of conflicting territorial claims in the West Philippine Sea. “Sure,” Senate Majority Leader Vicente C. Sotto III on Monday said when asked if the Philippine government should accept Trump’s offer made earlier at the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Vietnam. “Anything to help,” Sotto told the BusinessMirror.
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".
