The biometrics used by Clear are an improvement over the traditional method of identity verification because they lessen “the human error factor,” said John Pistole, former chief of the T.S.A. “People make mistakes from time to time,” he said. (Mr. Pistole is now a member of the Director of National Intelligence Senior Advisory Group, president of Anderson University in Indiana and a paid adviser to American Airlines and to an airport-security start-up called Evolv Technology.)
James Jay Rubens thought he was in decent shape. At 48, he was 5-foot-8 and 182 pounds. He jogged, rode a stationary bike and lifted weights several times a week. He was a light drinker, didn't smoke and avoided eating red meat. But at four o'clock one morning 13 years ago, he woke up with pain wracking his chest and shooting down his arms. His wife, a hospital pharmacist, recognized the symptoms. "She threw me in the car and...
Kathleen Keeler has thought a lot about aging, and about dying, since she retired from her career as a biology professor at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. “For me, the task in old age is to figure out how to die well,” said Keeler, who describes herself now as a “wandering botanist” who lives and teaches and volunteers in Loveland. “But what is ‘dying well’? Figuring that out is part of the task. Accepting the certainty and reality of death is a considerable and complex challenge.
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".
