SAN BERNARDINO >> President Abraham Lincoln said hello, then dropped into silence as he seemed sad, then happy, then looked up to the heavens in wonderment — and anyone watching would swear he was real. Except he wasn’t, he was an animatronic humanoid from the chest up — created by Garner Holt and his company in San Bernardino. “It would look up at me and it’s almost like it’s real, alive,” Holt said while demonstrating the head at Garner Holt Productions’ recent 40th anniversary celebration.
It looks like a classic wooden roller coaster, but California Screamin’ at Disney California Adventure is all steel, all modern and the top choice for amusement park rides. A linear induction motor starts the ride with a rush by launching riders to 55 mph in four seconds, slowing down only when climbing up the single lift on its 6,072-foot track.
China has never relied on official diplomatic means to exert influence abroad. Instead, it operates a vast, “shadowy” network of “united front” organizations in countries around the world including the United States. This network forms an integral part of China’s overseas propaganda apparatus, cooperating closely with Chinese government agencies in Beijing and with Chinese embassies and consulates abroad.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
