Spotify May Kill Pandora and iTunes, But Not Just Yet
"Just trust that the companies will tell us when they do something bad. If they do, we might be able to tell them not to do it any more." This is the spirit of how the internet will be regulated under new rules put forward by Federal Communications Chairman Ajit Pai. The rules, released on Wednesday, undo the strong net neutrality protections put in place under the Barack Obama administration—and then even go beyond that.
The U.S. government is about to take its biggest step yet in handing control of the internet to giant corporations. The Federal Communications Commission will release its plan on Wednesday to gut net neutrality rules put in place during the Barack Obama administration—a move cheered by nobody outside of major telecom companies and their trade groups.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then they invest in you. That's the scene that bitcoin investors and enthusiasts are facing. After years as an underground digital currency and a running joke in the world of finance, bitcoin is suddenly attracting attention from the people who once called it a scam: the big institutions of finance, who collectively control trillions of dollars. And it might not even be a matter of "if." It's now just a matter of "when."
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".
