Robots were already hard at work doing crazy parkour backflips—and now one is passing along the 2018 Winter Olympics torch. That important task went to Hubo, a robot made by the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, who’s known for being able to use tools. Spotted via Inside the Games, the “humanoid robot” took the torch from Professor Dennis Hong, founding director of the Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory at UCLA.
The Oxford Living Dictionary defines “man flu” as “A cold or similar minor ailment as experienced by a man who is regarded as exaggerating the severity of the symptoms.”But according to a new article published by the Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Dr. Kyle Sue in the BMJ (formerly known as the British Medicine Journal), there is some science behind men doing some extra complaining about flu symptoms. So let the boys whine!
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is worried about the whales. At the beginning of the year, researchers counted about 450 North Atlantic right whales in the wild, and 17 of them have already died—primarily ones located off the coasts of Canada and New England. John Bullard, the Northeast Regional Administrator for NOAA Fisheries, told the Associated Press the overall number is falling because 2017 has been a poor year for reproduction within the species as well.
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".
