The internet can be a beautiful and horrible place at the same time. Itâ€™s weird, and sometimes you feel like you want to leave. Sadly, thereâ€™s no easy way out â€” or there wasnâ€™t, until now. Swedish developersÂ Wille Dahlbo and Linus UnnebĂ¤ckÂ created Deseat.me, a web app that offers a way to wipe your entire existence off the internet in a few clicks.
It’s the end of the day. You just had your third coffee, and you’re crushing it. Totally in the flow, you’re ticking off every single thing on your to-do list. And then it happens — a tap on your shoulder. You try to ignore it. Maybe if you keep your eyes focused on the screen, they’ll leave — you’re wearing headphones for god’s sake! You turn up the volume a bit. Second tap. There’s no getting around it anymore, so you turn your head and take off your headphones.
Japan's workforce is tired - very tired. Notorious for its intense work culture, people are struggling with the ridiculous pressure companies can put on them. Last year, The Guardian reported one in five people are at risk of death from overwork, with 22.7% of companies reporting that some of its employees clocked over 80 hours of overwork every month - the official limit at which it can have serious medical implications.
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".
