• A turning point at Fukushima? Japanese officials are hoping to persuade a skeptical world that the vast nuclear site has moved out of crisis mode and into cleanup. The signal shift came in the form of the Mini-Manbo, or “little sunfish,” an armored underwater robot, above, that was able to maneuver around debris and withstand radioactive hot spots, finally locating one reactor’s melted uranium core. Similar discoveries were made at the complex’s two other ruined reactors this year.
• In Myanmar, the raping of Rohingya women and girls by government security forces has been even more widespread and systematic than suspected, according to a report by Human Rights Watch. Dozens and “sometimes hundreds of cases” reported in refugee camps “likely only represent a proportion” of the total number, the report said. • In Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe and his wife remained under house arrest in military custody.
• The fate of Robert Mugabe, the strongman leader of Zimbabwe for nearly 40 years, appears to be in the hands of former allies and opposition officials negotiating his future. He has been under house arrest since the military carried out what appeared to be a coup to prevent his wife from succeeding him. Mr. Mugabe, 93, is one of Africa’s last liberation leaders still in power. Here’s what we know about what happened, and a look at Mr. Mugabe’s public life over the past half century.
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".
