With back-to-back hurricanes in the last few weeks, we've been bombarded with contrasting images of high water rushing over inland streets and manatees stranded on dry beaches. In the first case, where'd all that extra water come from? And in the second, where did the sea water go? You can blame both on storm surge, what happens when powerful winds shove huge volumes of water toward — or away from — the shore. Storm surge can be one of the most dangerous aspects of a hurricane.
The question isn't why did the salmon leave the net, but what happens now that thousands of fish have escaped a Washington state salmon farm and swum off into the Pacific Ocean. There is no consensus about what the impact will be. There is long-standing concern that foreign, farmed fish — and Atlantic salmon is the species that's farmed around the world — could do damage to native fish stocks.
Deep space missions come with challenges, not the least of which is limited storage space. But scientists are finding ways to reduce the amount of supplies and costly shipments astronauts need on missions, partly by making use of what's already on hand â€” including human waste. "If you had the means to manufacture medicines and food and nutraceuticals and tools, you wouldn't have to plan ahead. You could make what you need as you need it," Mark Blenner of Clemson University told CBC News.
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".
