MOSCOW—Russian lawmakers advanced a bill Wednesday that would allow the government to designate international media outlets as “foreign agents,” a retaliatory move after Kremlin-backed network RT was required to register as a foreign agent in the U.S. this week. Legislators in the Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, voted unanimously Wednesday to amend existing law to impose new requirements on foreign media operating in Russia.
In a paradox worthy of a Russian novel, it may have been Sayfullo Saipovâ€™s good fortune that sent him spinning into a deadly trajectory as a terrorist on a lower Manhattan bike path. Interviewed in the family home in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Mr. Saipovâ€™s mother, Muqaddas Saipova, says her son, almost on a lark, entered a lottery to win a U.S. green card. At the time, the 22-year-old was a studious boy with a degree in accounting. Unexpectedly, he won, and moved to the U.S. in 2010.
The President of Uzbekistan pledged to assist the U.S. in the investigation of a terror attack in Manhattan that killed eight people and left at least a dozen injured Tuesday. In a statement to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev condemned the “ruthless and extremely cruel crime,” saying his country was prepared to “use all the forces and means available to assist in the investigation of this terrorist act.”...
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".
