FRENCH POLYNESIA — The atoll emerges like a verdant ribbon from the South Pacific, palms and mangroves clinging to the coral-covered lip of an eroded volcano that some 800 people call home. The only landmark that stands above Fakarava’s trees and modest bungalows is a pyramidal stone lighthouse, where bonfires burned before the atoll had electricity.
The Aranui 5 drops in on 10 islands during its two-week cruises through French Polynesia: two large atolls in the Tuamotu Archipelago, all six inhabited islands in the Marquesas group and two of the Society Islands. From lush Tahuata, to rugged Ua Huka to chic Bora Bora, here’s a glimpse of the other isles we visited. On the island of Hiva Oa, we visit the Mea’e Iipona archeological site, home to the largest Polynesian stone sculptures outside Easter Island.
At least three children have died while two others and an adult remain in critical condition following a spate of drowning incidents in Quebec and Ontario this past week, where temperatures reached summer-like heights. Last Sunday, an unconscious three-year-old was pulled from the bottom of a pool in Drummondville, Que., a city between Montreal and Quebec City, and remains in critical condition.
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".
