Additional Resources for you to Explore In the video above, the monkey act as perfect human analogs. We tend to have a instinctive notion of fairness from the time we are born, and we often react poorly to perceived lack of fairness, even at personal expense. This is only one example of a lack of of utility maximizing behavior. There are many more that we will begin to explore in the next module.
Nicky Galloway had loved the Jacksonville Jaguars from afar for five years without them ever coming close to a winning season. She’d stay up on Sunday night, only for the Jags to disappoint her almost all of the time. So when Jacksonville made the NFL playoffs this season, watching on TV wasn’t going to be enough. Galloway just had...
HITTISAU, Austria—Pita Taufatofua was not the most famous or the most successful athlete in the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics. He was the most shirtless. The previously unknown flag-bearer from Tonga marched into the world’s most-watched parade slathered with coconut oil and walked out a global celebrity. The world may see the strapping taekwondoka again sooner than anybody expected—this time with a whole lot more clothing....
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".
