Uganda Broadcasting Corporation accomplished two things yesterday. It successfully relayed via live feed the official funeral accorded Archbishop Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo in Namugongo. The feed while not perfect was quite decent. UBC also successfully carried the entire ceremony of the investiture of Nkoyoyo as archbishop in 1995. In a not so subtle way, Archbishop Ntagali, the current primate of Church of Uganda, gave perhaps the most stinging sermon of his tenure as archbishop.
The year 2017 has ended. Major global stories were led by the rise of Donald Trump and a conservative muscular anti-intellectualism to the White House. Trump has knocked off congeniality as a leadership quality and upended many conventions, written and unwritten. In 2018, Trump will continue this streak backed by a relatively healthy US economy, which grew in all four quarters of 2017 and falling unemployment. Rising interest rates are likely to lift the dollar against its rivals.
The nation’s top weatherman is painting a very “hot” picture for the country in January 2018. This is coming on the back of a very dry and dusty Christmas. City residents fled in droves to cooler spots like Kalangala for respite tagging the MV Kalangala into a potential death-trap as it can no longer handle the strain of human traffic. It seems rain has been thinning for some time. The lake region mostly accustomed to 1750-2000mm is recording just 1500mm (highs like Kalangala’s 2190 mm) are history.
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".
