My relationship with Birkenstocks is alarmingly similar to that of the actors who feature in adverts for German car manufacturers like Audi or Mercedes. Such actors, with their chiseled cheek bones and stylish stubble, slide into these beautiful machines that pose as mere automobiles. The actor seems immediately at home when he slides the key into the ignition, feeling at once tranquil and contempt, and yet aware of the power of the beast he is in control of.
The Cayman Islands, an offshore tax havenAxelspace Corporation Last week I wrote an article about Apple and the role that young people need to play in confronting the corporation, and rejecting their immoral and exploitative practices. As it transpires, I was wrong. Worse still, I was patently and embarrassingly naïve. The scope of my article, and the action that it demanded was far too narrow-minded. The measures were conservative.
The pioneers of the Cambridge Union+ schemeCambridge Union+ The Cambridge Union is uniquely susceptible to scathing and uncompromising attacks. Often, this is justifiable – it is extraordinarily expensive, its term card is sometimes underwhelming and, above all else, it’s the nucleus of cliquey ‘hacks’ who compete for uncontested committee positions. Until recently I have written, supported and echoed such claims.
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".
