In the hothouse of Olympic competition, where national identity plays an integral role in fandom, ice skating enthusiasts often present a more global front. Japanese fans, who are among the sport’s most passionate followers at a time when its popularity is falling in the United States and much of Europe and rising in Asia, are particularly known for their egalitarian flag-waving. They often show up to competitions bearing flags from several countries so that every skater will feel a little love.
The stands, mostly filled with organized groups of students and local government workers, waved a sea of flags bearing the map of the unified Korean Peninsula, the one inherently political emblem permitted at the Games. And despite the conspicuous absence of the North Korean cheerleaders, who had inspired intense fascination at previous games, the South Korean fans kept up buoyant chants of “Be strong!” and “Win, Korea, Win!” throughout the matchup.
Yonhap breaking alert: Kim Yong-chol, head of national intelligence for North Korea, will lead North’s delegation to closing ceremony. Waiting to hear if we get Kim Yo-Jong again to meet with Ivanka Trump
"Administration officials said Ivanka Trump was fully prepared to discuss Mr. Trump’s 'maximum pressure' policy with Mr. Moon, the South Korean news media or with North Korean officials, should she run into any." https://nyti.ms/2BFr5Db@MarkLandler
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".
