The World Wide Web is turning 25 Wednesday, and to celebrate the milestone, members of the TODAY family — and beyond — are sharing what they love most about the quarter-century-old tool. "There was a time way back when (let's call it 1998) when you had to flip through a phone book to find the number for that pizza place, or consult a musty almanac to find the population of Kalamazoo, or call a friend to remind you of that name of that band that sang that song," Geist said.
Gerard Baker is away. Today’s 10-Point is by Executive Editor Matt Murray. Follow him on Twitter @MurrayMatt. Good morning, Tech Turmoil Benchmark Capital, one of Uber’s largest shareholders, sued the ride-sharing company’s former chief executive, Travis Kalanick, alleging he defrauded directors into giving him more control over the board. The suit centers on a June 2016 decision by Mr. Kalanick to expand the board to 11 seats...
The idea of "painless wax" sounds like an oxymoron. But such is the claim of these new hard wax beads. And while I've never waxed anything in my entire life, I volunteered to test out the new product to see if the claim was true. Did I regret it? Maybe. In order to have a true basis of comparison, that also meant I had to try the traditional strip-wax method so I could know whether or not these hard wax beads truly inflict less pain than their counterpart.
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".
