Technology has taken a major place in our lives, and as such, we cannot spend even a few hours without it. What’s more, we are more concerned about our gadgets more than humanity. For example, if you don’t find a phone in your pocket, you might have a mini heart attack. However, if you see a person in an accident, do you always run to help or feel bad about it? Perhaps not. This is why when it comes to home décor, you can also make use of the technology.
A mobile-driven business to business sourcing platform for fresh produce from smallholder farmers is changing Kenya’s small-holder farmer’s fortunes for the better, one farmer at a time. Selina Wamucii is a startup that was founded two years ago by two enterprising Kenyans who have a lifelong history with agriculture, Kariuki Gaita and John Oroko.

One of the most common objections that some people have with regard to online gambling is that fact that it can tempt people into spending more money than they can afford to. For some people, this can also mean becoming addicted. Those who are susceptible to this type of behaviour can get into financial difficulties because in worse case scenarios, money that should be set aside for paying bills and buying food etc. can get eaten into.
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".
