With the possibility of a nuclear war higher now than it was in the 1960s, talking about its destructiveness and consequences is an unpopular, but necessary, topic. While it’s known that nuclear weapons can obliterate entire cities, eradicating millions of lives in the process, not enough has been said about the global, long-term effects. So, what would happen exactly in the aftermath of a full-scale nuclear apocalypse?
Robots are amazing. They can traverse rough terrain and carry heavy loads, manage pallets in a warehouse, serve customers in a restaurant, dance and more. Unfortunately, they’re not particularly bright or versatile. Most modern robots are one-trick ponies. Amazon’s warehouse drone can happily arrange metric tons of items, but it can’t really hold a conversation. The same goes for units capable of conversing with humans — and even then, most of them do so with …interesting results.
In 2016 the number of U.S. overdose deaths was 60,000, and the situation is getting worse. Challenges that drug addicts face are greater than ever before. The market is flooded with cheap, easy-to-make synthetic drugs that are 100 to 10,000 times more potent than heroin, with which they are often mixed to increase potency. That results in accidental overdosing, since users don’t know the chemical composition of the drugs they’re taking.
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".
