Celebrate Wednesday’s T-shirt weather while you can, Boston. While the region is expected to see record warmth on Wednesday, the National Weather Service says the 70-degree temperatures in Massachusetts will be replaced by snow and “dramatically colder weather” on Thursday. “A wave of low pressure tracking to the south will bring some accumulating snow and sleet north of the Pike with rain and sleet to the south,” the service said of the weather moving in on Thursday.
And this time the terrifyingly capable four-legged robot from Boston Dynamics is displaying that it won’t be deterred from its purpose of opening a door. Not even by a human wielding a hockey stick. The Waltham-based company explained with the clip released Wednesday that before the video started, the robot was placed in front of the door with its “hand” pointed at the door handle. It was then given the “Go” command at the start of the video and at the 42-second mark.
A week after they were hiding in classrooms from a gunman shooting through the hallways of their school, the students who survived the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are headed to the state’s capital to rally for changes to gun laws. The teens hope their rally in Tallahassee on Wednesday will put pressure on the Republican-controlled legislature. But the students are demanding more than just action by the Florida legislature.
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".
