First the good news: There really once were living, breathing "unicorns" walking around on Earth -- specifically, in what is now Kazakhstan. The bad news: They weren't the cute, cuddly, magical creatures that all children (and a lot of adults) love and cherish, like the one below.
Is Bigfoot stalking the wooded areas of Ohio? A video is making the Internet rounds that claims to show a large, dark, hairy creature running across a forest path. So far, the only information that's given is that the video was shot in April 2012 in the Grand River area of northeast Ohio. The video, posted to YouTube by HowTo101Channel, appears to have been taken from the front of a motorized bike or scooter while it was moving along a path in a forest.
An upcoming documentary promises to show an alleged, tiny "alien" being that was found a few years ago in Chile's Atacama Desert. And when we say tiny, we're talking six inches from head to ET toe. Don't be fooled by the apparent size of the creature in the picture above, as the following image shows its true 6-inch stature.
In the past few days, mainstream media reported - first via the New York Times - after many decades of denials from the government and military, the Pentagon has revealed a secret UFO study from 2007-2012. Is this the "disclosure" so many have hoped for? https://t.co/x4h2OR6sz8
I'm not normally into alleged govt. conspiracies, but thought it was interesting that Newsweek just presented a story about claims of proof that at least one Apollo moon mission was faked. What do you think? https://t.co/5zcA0AIgh8
Another exoplanet has been discovered. CNN reports that the planet, dubbed Ross 128 b, orbits its host star only 11 light-years away from Earth. And preliminary research suggests Ross 128 b may support life. It's a big neighborhood out there. https://t.co/zSJR8lmsEx
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".
