The topic of visa-free travel leapt into the spotlight earlier this year when U.S. President Donald Trump signed executive orders attempting to bar travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations. Now there’s one persistent rumor about visa-free travel to the U.S. that just keeps popping up. One website has set about trying to convince people that Trump signed an order granting Pakistanis visa-free travel to the U.S., but beware. We’ve looked into the matter, and it’s fake news.
A new Google Pixel 2 mockup has been posted on Reddit, and it is igniting the imagination of Pixel fans everywhere. Redditor mckblee, who posted the Google Pixel 2 mockup, said he/ she drew inspiration from the new Essential Phone, which was developed by Android creator Andy Rubin, and the LG G6. There’s also a second mockup that was posted this week that goes all-out by adding high-tech features that probably go beyond what Google has in mind.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down from his post today, and already, it seems the board has named the person they want to succeed him: Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. That is, if the report is to be believed and if she even wants the job. Citing unnamed sources, the New York Post reports that Uber’s board of directors plans to approach Sheryl Sandberg about taking over as chief executive of the beleaguered ride-sharing firm.
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".
