The second son of late Muammar El-Gaddafi, Saif Al-Islam El-Gaddafi, has emerged from prison to run for the upcoming 2018 Presidential election in Libya. To win, he needs to first convince those who count - Libyans. Roughly 80 percent of the 140 powerful tribes and clans that hold political might in Libya are gearing up to support Saif Gaddafi as the man with the right ginger and experience to patch up Libya following the 2011 NATO-led intervention that saw the ousting and killing of his father.
Killing all potential returning foreign fighters or wishing them death will not solve the problem of terrorism in the U.K. This kind of rhetoric, supported by defense secretary Gavin Williamson, is emotional and deeply flawed and will not deny returning fighters the ability to sneak in and cause disaster while we sleep. An estimated 800 British people traveled to territories controlled by the Islamic State (ISIS) militant group to join its fight since 2014.
More than 300 people were killed in Somalia after a truck bomb targeted a busy road in the capital Mogadishu on 14 October. The death toll is likely to increase as hundreds more were injured in the bombing, and it is still too early to know how many are currently trapped in the rubble.
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".
