Open an image in a text editor and you’ll see pages of gibberish; open it in an audio editor and you’ll hear atonal white noise. What would Paris look like with an echo effect? Something like this:All types of media — whether it’s an image, a video or even a sound file — contains raw data. This is encoded information which has data that your computer reads and translates into the appropriate format. For an image, this includes information about pixels and color, hue and contrast.
(CNN) When a woman gets married in Afghanistan, her name isn't on the wedding invitations. When she gives birth, her name is left off the child's birth certificate. And when she dies, her headstone reads, "Mr. X's mother, daughter, wife or sister." In a patriarchal, deeply conservative culture, it's inappropriate to openly refer to Afghani women by their first names. Instead, they're called 'Mother of X' or "wife of X." But a group of activists is trying to change that.
(CNN) The first time Shaesta Waiz remembers seeing a plane, she was a child watching the news about an aircraft accident. "I said to my mom, 'I hope I never ever have to fly in an airplane,'" she said. "I was so scared and terrified." Now Waiz is a certified pilot in the middle of a solo flight around the world. By the time the 29-year-old completes her journey in September in Daytona Beach, Florida, she plans to have made more than two dozen stops in some 18 countries.
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".
