Magnus Carlsen captured another global crown, albeit an unofficial title, this week when Norway’s world No 1 defeated Hikaru Nakamura of the US 14-10 at Fischer Random chess in a $185,000 five-day series in Oslo. The 27-year-old is a national hero in his homeland, where all the games were televised live by the state broadcaster, NRK, and the Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, made the ceremonial first move.
Tradewise Gibraltar is widely reckoned the best open event in the world and its 2018 edition did not disappoint. The Rock’s attractions include elite grandmasters from the global top, rising talents, the highest prize fund for women in a mixed event, a large high-class hotel venue, active support from government and a full social programme between games. Even a raging afternoon gale at the start of round seven failed to ruffle the organisers, who simply extended the default time by one hour.
3532 White mates in three moves, against any defence (by Fritz Giegold). This puzzle looks trivial, but you need to find a cute hidden trick. Back to basics proved a successful motto for Magnus Carlsen at Tata Steel Wijk aan Zee, when the world champion scored his first elite tournament win for 18 months, set a new record by capturing the historic event for the sixth time, increased his lead in the live ratings and beat Anish Giri in a speed play-off to keep his 100% lifetime record in tie-breaks.
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".
