Former Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal famously said it would take three years for his players to absorb his patented football philosophy. Alas, he only lasted two. His ‘boring’ tactics came under-fire from supporters and the press, and the Dutchman’s players reportedly rebelled against his meticulous methods. The method they found the most irritating?
Netflix’s Narcos, a series based on the life of infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, is getting a video-game adaptation. No details have yet emerged on how the game will play out, but we can probably expect a Mafia-esque tale of drugs, revenge and unfortunate facial hair. Curve Digital will release PC and console versions of the game, and said in a statement: “We’re looking forward to creating a game that matches the fantastic storyline and gritty action of the Netflix series.
Wireless charging is the kind of showy tech breakthrough that sounds a lot more revolutionary and helpful than it actually is. In fact, it could even prove to be harmful. Not only does the upcoming Apple AirPower hog way more space on your desk than a traditional charger, but it’s also been shown to slowly eat away at a device’s battery. ZDNet blogger Adrian Kingsley-Hughes tested his iPhone on the pad, and soon found that he was draining his batteries at a much faster rate.
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".
