Tomorrow afternoon, Richard Yu will take to the stage in front of 1,200 people in the Olympic Park stadium in Munich to unveil the most important new tech product you’ve never heard of — made by a company whose name you probably can’t pronounce. It’s the Huawei Mate 10. It is a smartphone and the brand is pronounced Hwah-way (meaning magnificent achievement or splendid act, according to the company).
Few billionaires find themselves homeless, but Richard Branson has no roof over his head. His house on Necker, in the British Virgin Islands, was ripped apart by Hurricane Irma three weeks ago. “Everything has been devastated,” he sighs. He and the 70 staff who run the island for his family, their guests and the clients who pay up to £60,000 a day to rent the place cowered in the cellar for 11 hours — and got stuck into the wine, just in case it was their last night on earth.
Las Vegas is where you go for old-fashioned fun, but I’ve got an appointment with the future. It’s 7am and the sun is beginning to rise over faux Paris, New York, Venice and the Egyptian pyramids when a silver BMW pulls up on the Strip to pick me up. I’m going to take Frank Sinatra Drive to Interstate 15, but I won’t be driving. No one will. The car will do it itself.
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".
