Headcount Records – July 28th From the thumping drums that usher in Fake Laugh’s debut album, you could be forgiven for momentarily expecting this to be something of a heavy affair. It’s anything but. From the very first jangly strum of guitar, it’s clear that’s but a brief moment of deception at the start of eleven altogether more easy-going tracks. Berlin-born, London-based Kamran Khan’s music is a whole lot more sincere than the kind expression with which he shares his pseudonym.
An Australian brokerage said on Tuesday that three of its staff who were held hostage by angry investors in Shanghai had been freed and were helping police with an investigation, after a bizarre stand-off in the company’s office that lasted almost a week. As many as 50 investors who blame Sydney-based Union Standard Group Forex (USGFX) for losses of about $2.6m in foreign currency trades entered the office last Wednesday.
Two Hearts and No Brain could just as easily imply a romantic record as it could something different entirely. After all, two hearts might not be as much of a blessing as they may at first seem. Surely it depends on what type of hearts they are – warm or cold, big or small? And in the case of Kane Strang, two hearts seem necessary to handle all of the heartbreak, loneliness and despair that fill his second, breakthrough full-length effort.
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".
