Iran is threatening to restart its nuclear program in response to new sanctions imposed by the United States Congress, and to Donald Trump’s cheerleading on behalf of Saudi Arabian regional imperialism. Iran’s President, Hassan Rouhani, warned on Tuesday his country will abandon the 2015 multinational Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) limiting Iran’s nuclear development program if the U.S. imposes any more sanctions.
In theory, the world should be breathing a collective sigh of relief over the fact that North Korea appears to have finally wedded an atomic weapon to an intercontinental ballistic missile. This is a state run by a family regime that has fed on paranoia since Kim Il-sung was installed as the Soviet Union’s puppet in the dying days of the Second World War. For much of the 72 years since, the paranoia has been justified: The world has been out to get the Kim family.
When a supreme court fires a prime minister for being dishonest about his personal finances, it’s usually a reason to cheer the triumph of a well-ordered democracy. But when this happens in Pakistan, it’s a good idea to look closely at the context. From some vantage points, last week’s expulsion by the Pakistan Supreme Court of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for having hidden assets overseas is more a coup by a rampantly activist judiciary than it is an affirmation of the rule of law.
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".
