China has backed the Myanmar military's actions in Rakhine as necessary "to maintain national stability," and has used its veto to prevent the United Nations Security Council from condemning the violence. During a visit to Myanmar last weekend, China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterated Beijing's support for Myanmar's government and proposed an economic corridor between China's Yunnan province and Rakhine.
Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia: Ngin Chan shuffled to a table adorned with flowers to mark his wedding, and saw his wife-to-be for the first time. "I was scared. I was told that if I did not marry her I would be taken away and killed," says 61-year-old Ngin, of that day 39 years ago when Pol Pot's murderous Khmer Rouge regime ruled Cambodia. A slight, dark-skinned girl a year older than him stepped forward and made a short speech which Ngin has never forgotten.
Manila: Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has taken credit for helping liberate the besieged Philippine city of Marawi after a bloody four month siege, saying Australia's role was a "game changer." Speaking during an Asian summit on security in Manila, Mr Turnbull revealed that Australia provided "real time" intelligence to troops fighting hundreds of Islamic State-backed militants in the Philippine's largest Muslim city. "It was a big deal. Hugely important," Mr Turnbull said.
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".
