Have smartphones gotten too smart for their own good? A trend that has emerged in the past couple of years suggests the "dumbphone" is making a comeback. No, not a rotary dial, desktop console from the 1950s, but a more basic mobile device, like something out of the 1990s, just before the internet took over everyone's life. Or, you can get something with sleek technology that does nothing put make and receive calls. Nothing more than peace and quiet, because dumb phones aren't necessarily cheaper.
The family of Guo Chenwei, a University of Utah student who was killed during a carjacking attempt, released a statement about the loss of the young man who brought "immense joy" to family and friends. The university in Salt Lake City released the statement on Friday on behalf of Guo's family, noting that his life was taken in "a senseless act of violence earlier this week. Understandably, they are grieving the loss of their son and ask for privacy at this time.
NEW YORK ( NEW YORK ( TheStreet ) -- As we move into the meat of the college football bowl season (not to slight the earlier games; every bowl game is a treat; we just can't cover them all), it's time to wonder about a few things in college football. First, have you noticed how there is not one college football game on New Year's Day this season? The holiday falls on a Sunday, yes, but regardless, New Year's Day was always the domain of college football.
@HoosierFootball@CoachAllenIU Coach, I watched the highlight reel. You sure you don't want to consider Matt at linebacker the way he finishes a tackle? With his height, speed and only another 10 pounds or so, he could cause some trouble in the conference.
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".
