Starbucks is entering round two of its refugee-hiring plan, the backlash be damned. It announced today — which, not by accident, is World Refugee Day — that cafés in Europe will recruit 2,500 new refugee workers over the next five years. This marks the second phase of a policy that Starbucks rolled out in January as essentially Howard Schultz’s retaliation to President Trump’s travel ban.
A popular French fitness model has died after being hit by an exploding whipped-cream dispenser. The horrifying accident occurred on Saturday, when the pressurized canister Rebecca Burger was using at home blew up and collided with her chest, sending her into cardiac arrest. (Her family waited until yesterday to make an official announcement.) French media report that medics were able to get Burger’s heart beating again, but she was unconscious at the hospital and died the very next day, sadly.
The days of workers hiding their extracurricular activities behind the “too many everything bagels” excuse are numbered: A British company that makes specialized ingredients for the food industry has engineered a version of the topping that contains an almost-negligible amount of morphine. Drug tests can rule out the worst offender — heroin — but other opiates can still throw them a curve ball, and that’s where FDL steps in.
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".
