Neither as glitzy as Dubai nor as known for its history as Jordan, Oman could be described as that rarest of things - a part of the Middle East that, relatively speaking, has neither fame nor notoriety. Unappreciated? Underrated? Perhaps both these things. But today (November 18) is its national day - which is surely a fair enough reason to shine a light onto a semi-mysterious package. Through the following splendid facts.
There are times when the idea of supersonic flight can seem like a sports car far ahead of you on a straight road. There are times when the idea of supersonic flight can seem like a sports car far ahead of you on a straight road.
There are times when the idea of supersonic flight can seem like a sports car far ahead of you on a straight road. You can see it there in the distance, and you know its existence is real rather than theoretical (even if it also feels like a fragment of the past) - but then the vehicle dips over the horizon or around a bend, and vanishes from view. The story - that a replacement for Concorde is imminent - reemerges every few months. Here, here and here, for example.
@alicemurphy13 Hi Alice. These are probably cliches, but it's about finding good/different angles and working on your writing as much as possible. Even in the social media age, good writing goes a long way. And a blog which shows what you can do is never a bad idea.
So #Trump is home from his tour of Asia. Where he was brilliant. In fact, we should all learn from his fine travel etiquette - via the 13 ways I've sketched out for @TelegraphTravel. Note - feature may contains sarcasm. And nuts. But mainly sarcasm. https://t.co/be7jsA5vmR
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".
