Of the more than 410,000 Rohingya Muslims who have arrived in Bangladesh since 25 August, around 240,000 are children. The United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) says about 36,000 are less than one year old and 92,000 are under five. There are also some 52,000 pregnant or lactating women among the refugees. These vulnerable people are the most at risk of malnutrition and diseases as conditions worsen in the squalid refugee camps in Bangladesh.
Martin Parr is arguably Britain's greatest living photographer, having spent more than 40 years documenting social conditions in Britain. Taken together, his body of work is an exhaustive survey, revealing both what it's like to live in Britain, and what the British are like. He highlights the social norms of the working and middle classes, focusing on tiny details that say so much about our obsession with class and taste.
Oktoberfest 2017, which kicked off in Munich over the weekend, is the world's biggest beer festival. Organisers estimate that around seven million people will pass through the gates before the festival ends on 3 October. They are expected to drink a similar number of litres of beer – which seems a little low to us. But it's not just about beer.
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".
