When reports first emerged of an assassination attempt on 66-year-old Sergei Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia, in the Salisbury nerve agent attack in Salisbury on 4 March, they were met with a degree of disbelief. Who would have thought a scene that could have been plucked straight from a TV show like McMafia would be playing out in the middle of a city ordinarily known for its charming cathedral, and nearby Stonehenge? But amidst the disbelief there was also a sense of déjà vu.
To mark International Women’s Day, Marie Claire is proud to exclusively showcase Golden Globe-winning actress and UN ambassador Cate Blanchett in conversation with Kelly Clements, the Deputy Commissioner at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). With 65.6m people currently displaced around the world, Blanchett is a representative of UNHCR, the UN’s Refugee Agency, which offers protection to some 20 million women and their children, who have been forced to flee their homes.
Ah, the approach of World Book Day, or as it’s fondly known in our house BUT-I-DON’T-EVEN-LIKE-PETER-PAAAN-Day, ever since the time I tried to fob my then five-year-old daughter off with a feather and a shredded orange sheet fashioned into an outfit that, on closer inspection, was more the oompa loompa-Matchstick Girl than an age-defying child of Neverland.
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".
