Tracing your finger along the latitude lines of a globe reveals countless surprises — Scotland is as far north as Alaska? More than half of Chile is farther south than South Africa? But have you ever wondered which places around the world have the same climate as your hometown? Reddit user Trampolinebears recently shared this map of United States comparing its climates to those of other regions.
The rules for flying within the United States might change for a large number of Americans, according to a TSA.gov announcement. The REAL ID bill passed by Congress in 2005 requires states to update their IDs in order for those IDs to allow entry on domestic flights. While over half of US states have since phased in “compliant” IDs, including driver’s licenses, IDs from big states such as New York and California will no longer get you past TSA starting January 22nd, 2018.
even though 28 states have legalized medical cannabis, it is still vital for supporters to stay informed of the medical advantages of the drug. Being able to defend the benefits of medicinal use, especially with the opioid epidemic grabbing national headlines, is also essential for pro-legalization activists. Thankfully, Eric Jones of Toronto Defense Lawyers has put together an infographic that breaks down the health particulars of cannabis use.
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".
