There are many religions in this world, some mainstream, some outrightly weird. But the adherents have the right to believe in what they want without being attacked and ridiculed, as long as they practise their faith peacefully. OH dear, the ‘son of God’ is stepping down. Prince Philip of England has decided to stand down from public life, apparently because he can’t stand up very much at the age of 96. So what has God got to do with it?
The recent rampage outside schools has again highlighted a major problem with schools – the weaknesses in a system that overlooks poor performing students, making them easy targets for gangs. THEY could have been scenes from the Wild Wild West. It was in Klang, the western gateway into the country but instead of cowboys, horses and guns, there were schoolboys, kapcais and firecrackers.
IT was wanton taking of a human life. A woman was crossing the road – at a pedestrian crossing, no less – when a motorcyclist just rode into her, flinging her screaming onto the road. As his helmet fell to the ground, he rode off. An innocent woman going to buy groceries died because someone did not care for road traffic rules. A man has been arrested and charged, but until he is found guilty and punished, it is not for us to judge him.
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".
