If you ever needed proof that fate is a real thing and some relationships are destined to be, then prepare for your cynical hat to get knocked off your head. This fairy tale goes back to the year 2000. According to Sina News, a young man named Mr. Ye was visiting the May Fourth Square in the seaside city of Qingdao, China. A young woman, Ms. Xue, also happened to be visiting the site. Fast-forward to 2018 and Mr. Ye and Ms. Xue are now married with twins.
It doesn’t get any more disappointing than someone telling you about the potential you once had. Had. Past tense. Implying that any hopes that person had for you are long gone. It’s like a verbal punch in the gut — and Shia LaBeouf, after many, many, many chances — is still reeling from it. But there might be hope for Shia yet, because it appears he’s finally realized just how much his actions have impacted his life and livelihood.
Prince Harry has spent quite some time in Africa and this year, in particular, has been quite memorable. Our favourite royal was in Lesotho last week for the official opening of the Mamohato Children’s Centre, a cause close to his heart and what his charity Sentebale has been working so hard on for the past 10 years. This week, Harry took over the Kensington Royal Instagram to showcase photos from his visit to South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
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".
