DESPITE the huge announcements made recently by politicians, you can rest easy for now. Petrol and diesel cars are NOT being banned in the UK from 2040, or 2032 if you live in Scotland. I’ve watched as people have lathered themselves up into a frenzy about how we will all need to be driving electric cars and that the national grid won’t be able to cope etc. It’s just wrong.
DO YOU use a dash camera to record your drives? Do you use a smartphone app to capture every journey you make to get a discount on your insurance? Has any of this technology improved your driving or has it been used in a court to prove you were blameless following an incident? I love a bit of technology but neither a smartphone app nor a dash cam have made it into my beloved vehicle. The car is an oasis for me. I spend my life hooked up to the internet, email, the latest submission for a client.
Texas Medical Center in Houston is the largest such center in the world. Its sprawl of more than 100 acres encompasses multiple institutions, including Baylor University, Rice University, and the Texas Children’s Hospital. It is also home to the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where since Hurricane Harvey arrived on the night of Friday, August 25, almost 700 physicians, nurses, lab techs, and support staff have stayed to care for roughly 400 patients.
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".
