The government of Kenya has announced that it plans to start construction of a cable car across the Likoni channel in November. The US$41 million cableway project â€“ the first of its kind in Kenya â€“ should ease the transport of people from Mombasa (and its Moi International Airport) to the popular resorts along the south coast, including Diani Beach, Tiwi Beach and Wasini Island.
Much like Yoda is former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. Old he is, at 91. And translation his words have often required. But on Tuesday, Greenspan, who ran America’s central bank from 1987 to 2006, gave a pretty clear warning about the U.S. economy in an interview with Bloomberg News. It’s not about the stock market bubble, despite the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s current flirtation with a milestone above 22000.
The big dogs in the billionaires’ club may soon have a new top dog: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. A bump in Amazon’s share price Thursday morning temporarily pushed Bezos’s net worth just above $90 billion, surpassing that of Bill Gates. That briefly made Bezos the “world’s richest person,” according to rankings tracked by both Forbes and Bloomberg, although Amazon’s stock ultimately reversed course to end down slightly at the closing bell, off less than 1 percent.
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".
