The Aljojuca volvano in central Mexico doesn’t have the obvious look of a volcano: It’s a giant crater with 1,200-foot cliffs and a half-mile-long deep-blue lagoon at the bottom. Families from the adjacent town of Aljojuca — almost four hours east of Mexico City — have been coming to the lagoon for generations.
In 1992, Disney released the film "Aladdin," based on a series of short stories from the Middle East and South Asia. The cartoons reflected the Middle-Eastern background of the characters, but the voice actors did not. These days, though, filmgoers are more sensitive to how race is being portrayed on the screen. And Disney film producers, who are now working on a live-action remake of "Aladdin," say they can’t find actors who can act, sing and have Middle Eastern backgrounds.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Saudi Arabia this week. And on his agenda is helping resolve a recent dispute between Qatar and four other Arab nations. They’re all allies of the United States. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain all cut ties with Qatar last month. And they have 13 demands, including that Qatar scale back its relations with Iran and to close down Al Jazeera. It’s unusual for a news organization to get caught in political crossfire like this.
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".
