Spotify May Kill Pandora and iTunes, But Not Just Yet
No, not the copyright to the picture. They own the picture itself. You can, of course, download a version, but that's just a copy. Someone owns the original. It is art, and it has an owner. What does that mean in the digital age? That's what the guys at Larva Labs want to find out. The image above is just one of 10,000 pieces of art released last week as part of an experiment called CryptoPunks.
Amazon buys Whole Foods(!) for $13.7 billionImage: Chip Somodevilla/ getty imagesBy Jason Abbruzzese2017-06-16 13:08:05 UTCAmazon is reportedly acquiring Whole Foods, a move that marks the most aggressive move yet by the ecommerce giant to get into the world of brick-and-mortar stores as well as groceries. Amazon's paying $13.7 billion for the grocery chain, which now operates some 465 stores across the U.S. This story is developing.
The Amazon CEO posted on Thursday a request for pitches for a new philanthropic effort. If anybody has the money and vision to start a game-changing non-profit, it's Bezos. As Bezos notes, he has made himself into one of the world's richest people by banking on the idea that planning for the long-term is better than trying to go for a short-term boost. That, however, is not necessarily what he's looking for.
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".
