If Donald Trump can hand out awards for Fake Media — The New York Times and The Washington Post cleaned up in his — then I can too. For the most exceptional world leaders. After carefully selecting the best stable geniuses across the globe to be on a judging panel, there will be a big ceremony, the biggest the world has ever seen. The red carpet will be a mile long, and the women who walk down it will wear the finest dresses.
The trudge to work with a coffee in hand, logging off your office computer at 6pm, sitting on the Tube at rush hour, dreaming about those things you really wanted to do? Really? Still? Welcome to 2018. Welcome to the new economy. It’s moving fast, it’s open to all, and there’s just one thing you have to do: hustle. This is the age of the start-up, the sideline business and projects. Whole workflows run from your smartphone.
Theresa May will be practising her bonjours today in anticipation of the arrival of France’s suave President Macron for their first summit tomorrow. It’s being held at Sandhurst military academy, eight months after he ascended to the top job. Will it be a British show of force, or will the French bring out the big guns? And how will May and Macron, as different as cheddar and Camembert, get along? Here’s how they’ve been doing so far on style and substance.
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".
