Mother Nature is angrier than ever before, and so is Al Gore. If the former vice president of the United States was calm, poised and persuasive in the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, then he rages, despairs and hopes again in An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. The sequel, released in Singapore on 17 August, comes 11 years after the Oscar-winning original catapulted climate change into the public consciousness, and is no less terrifying and inspiring than the first.
If you had asked a fashion industry executive about transparency three years ago, you’d most likely have been met with the response, “Do you mean sheer fabrics?”Now, though, there are lots of companies that want to be more open, and help suppliers that are not used to sharing information do the same, said Neliana Fuenmayor, fashion designer and founder of A Transparent Company. Her company aims to help the fashion industry become less opaque through the use of blockchain technology.
Singapore’s love for good eats has given rise to a world-renowned culinary culture, but the city-state can also harness its love for food to win the battle against food waste, says international food waste campaigner Tristram Stuart. A prolific author, campaigner and National Geographic Emerging Explorer, Stuart will share his experiences and thoughts about food waste at Nat Geo Live: Celebrating the End of Food Waste this Sunday at Marina Bay Sands.
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".
