An expose in The Washington Post reveals that President Barack Obama knew last August that Vladimir Putin himself had ordered the attack on the 2016 election. He knew Putin ordered the email hack, the release of the emails, and some of the phony stories that circulated on social media. He did nothing at the time. Obama’s advisers wanted him to go public to warn the voters! But the president made no public statement. On Sunday talk shows Democrats like Senator Joe Manchin couldn’t believe it.
Protests continue over the shooting of Charleena Lyles by Seattle police officers who were called to her apartment to investigate a burglary. Is it loaded to ask ‘where is dad?’ after Lyles shooting? The latest information — based on security camera video — is that the burglary did not happen in the 24 hours before she called the police – but in any case, it has again raised familiar questions about police use of force.
This is your semi-regular reminder that we live in a seismic fault zone, and there’s that Cascadia Subduction Zone right off the West Coast. A major earthquake is coming, we just don’t know when. But an effort is underway to alert us prior to a big quake. It’s a program that could save thousands of lives, as long as it is actually finished. Early warning systems are already in place in Mexico and Japan. People in Japan are already receiving more than a 1-minute warning before large quakes.
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".
