Turkish coastguards have mounted a dramatic rescue operation in the Aegean Sea, saving 68 people who became stranded on rocks as they attempted to seek refuge in Europe. The state-run Anadolu agency did not identify the nationality of the people rescued but said they had been picked up from an outcrop near the coastal city of İzmir. Footage from the rescue operation showed coastguard personnel airlifting a child as others waited on the rocks next to a partially deflated rubber dinghy.
Salvator Mundi – the painting depicting Christ by Leonardo Da Vinci recently auctioned for a record $450m – is heading to the Louvre Abu Dhabi in a coup for the new museum. The first museum to bear the Louvre name outside France has been billed as “the first universal museum in the Arab world” in a sign of the oil-rich emirate’s global ambitions.
Fewer journalists have been killed this year than in the recent past. The global death toll in 2017 stands at 54, down on the 79 killed last year and on course to be the least bloody year for a decade. Of those 54, at least 34 killings have been confirmed as having a “journalistic motivation”. But the numbers tell only half the story.

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".
