2017's bizarre fidget spinner obsession just got even weirder. Russian daredevils took this year's top toy trend to a new extreme by engineering a spinner made out of three old cars. A YouTube video uploaded last week by Гараж 54 shows a team working tirelessly to construct the eighth wonder of the world. The 11-minute-long masterpiece depicts the painstaking process of welding decrepit cars together to form the fidget spinner to end all fidget spinners.
Apple fans, get your cameras ready. Apple's new Chicago store is currently under construction and will come equipped with its very own MacBook roof. So even if you don't buy a Mac, you can at least take selfies under one. Yesterday, the construction crew placed Apple's iconic logo in the middle of the overhead silver structure before rolling it up just an hour later.
Netflix on Wednesday debuted a trailer of upcoming releases that will be available for streaming in July, and included on the list is none other than Lucasfilm's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." Last year's blockbuster will be the first of the Star Wars franchise to come to the service as part of an exclusive deal between Netflix and Disney. The contract did not take effect until September 2016, four years after its 2012 announcement, and also includes movies from Pixar and Marvel.
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".
