Carnegie Mellon University faculty and students are exploring the influence of technology on modern life through a 200-year-old lens: Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." Shelley's novel, which explores the drive to create and the ethics of responsibility, provides a current metaphor for examining the fast-paced development of artificial intelligence.
Carnegie Mellon University alumna Louisa Jáuregui has been digging into the history and culture of the allotment gardens — green oases — in Leipzig, Germany, since 2016. With 1.4 million of these kleingartens across Germany, Jáuregui wanted to understand their development over the past 150 years by studying their densest zone in Leipzig. Now living in Leipzig, she purchased her own kleingarten to get her hands dirty.
Beer and a Movie, Recession-StyleBy Jennie Dorris | April 9, 2009A few weeks ago, a friend and I were shivering in line outside the Mayan Theatre. The woman in the front of the line carried a big messenger bag, and as she dug for her wallet to pay, a beer dumped out and exploded on the concrete. We all dodged the spray of the can as she turned around, faced the line, and said boldly, “Well, it’s a recession!” We couldn’t argue with that. Nationally, movie ticket sales are up 17.5 percent.
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".
