HILLARY CLINTON led attacks on America’s gun lobby, saying the Las Vegas massacre showed the dangers of their efforts to remove restrictions on buying silencers. The Democrat former presidential candidate said: ‘The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer.’She added ‘our grief is not enough’ as she called for tougher firearms laws.
THE bloodbath in Las Vegas is the worst of many notorious mass shootings in the United States. June, 2016: Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 58 others at a gay nightclub in Orlando, in the deadliest terror attack in the US since 9/11. Mateen was killed by police.
Everything was going swimmingly for these divers… before two giant humpback whales turned up. As Shawn Stamback and Francis Antigua bobbed about in the Pacific, they suddenly found themselves surrounded by hundreds of fish. That was no problem. But then the fish started jumping out the water. Seconds later, the men nearly jumped out their skins. The hungry leviathans exploded skywards a few feet from them.
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".
