From a former United Nations veteran to an ex-army helicopter pilot to a former basketball pro, the women in South Korean President Moon Jae In's new Cabinet are as diverse as can be. With women appointed in six out of 19 positions, Mr Moon has made good his campaign promise to have at least 30 per cent women in his administration. This is the highest figure in South Korea's democratic history.
On his 100th day in office, South Korean President Moon Jae In will put himself in the line of media fire, ready to tackle tough topics ranging from North Korea's missile crisis to the controversial phasing out of nuclear power to impending tax hikes. The press conference, to be held on Thursday, will be an opportunity for a "candid conversation" with the media, said the presidential Blue House. Such is the open-door approach of the popular liberal leader.
North Korea has revealed a detailed plan to fire four missiles at the US territory of Guam, and hit back at President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" threat by calling it a "load of nonsense", even as its neighbours vowed to take action if further provoked. Japan's Defence Ministry warned that it could legally intercept such a missile launch, while South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said North Korea will face "strong and resolute retaliation" from the allies if it continues with provocations.
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".
