Even before an international summit on the North Korean nuclear crisis begins, foreign ministers who'll be in attendance admit a diplomatic solution is impossible without two countries that won't be there. China and Russian won't be represented at the summit in Vancouver, and both countries have criticized the summit as too focused on sanctions and not enough on dialogue.
The Democrat has won and the Republican has lost in Alabama, one of the most conservative states in the U.S. Doug Jones eked out a narrow victory over Roy Moore — 49.9 per cent to 48.4 per cent, with over 20,000 write-in votes. The race pitted Mr. Jones, a prosecutor who was best known for jailing Klansmen who had murdered four African-American girls with a bomb at a church, against Mr. Moore, who was accused of sexually abusing minors.
What goes around, comes around. Roy Moore won the Republican nomination for Alabama’s special Senate election by viciously attacking his party’s establishment. Now he finds himself in a bit of trouble and the establishment is happy to him hang out to dry. “If these allegations are true, he must step aside,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Politico. “I’m horrified, and if this is true he needs to step down immediately,” Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski said.
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".
