Uber has begun plans for a flying taxi that would cruise above congested roadways, getting you to your destination on time and in style. Sounds pretty futuristic, right? If Uber and NASA (who will be assisting with the project) reach their objective, they’ll have the first paying customer from Los Angeles sitting in a flying taxi in 2023.
Stranger Things is good TV. It’s that simple. It’s fun, it’s frightening, it’s got Winona Ryder in it. Plus there’s the fashion…or, one sweater in particular. A bunch of raving Stranger Things fans crashed the website for the Science Museum of Minnesota when it announced it was selling the purple brontosaurus hoodie worn by one of the characters, Dustin Henderson, in season one.
There’s a heated debate happening on the Internet today, and you’re going to want to get in on it. This here photo of a Vans skate shoe is causing all sorts of arguments because of its perceived colour(s). Some people are seeing this shoe as grey and teal while others are see it as white and pink. It’s like that dress from 2015 where some people saw it as white and gold while others saw blue and black, or these flip flops with the same colour combos. What colour do you see in each situation?
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".
