Nic Robertson is CNN's international diplomatic editor. The opinions in this article are those of the author. Sadly for Yukiya Amano -- the director general of the IAEA, whom I interviewed this week -- the diplomacy required to get his inspectors access to North Korea's nefarious nuclear sites has been in short supply. Sadly perhaps for the rest of us, that shortage of diplomacy when it comes to dealing with North Korea isn't about to change. Worse, it might be driven into the dirt.
Nota del editor: Nic Robertson es editor de diplomacia internacional de CNN. Las opiniones expresadas en esta columna son exclusivas de su autor. (CNN) — Kim Jong Un se ha adelantado al mundo. Su meta de ser una amenaza nuclear global parece casi cristalizada. Esa es la opinión del hombre cuya misión habría sido acorralar la capacidad nihilista de Kim a las armas convencionales, si se le hubiera dado la oportunidad.
Yukiya Amano, head of the International Atomic Energy Authority, told CNN that North Korea's claim that it had tested a hydrogen bomb on Sunday represented a "new dimension of threat." "I think the North Korean threat is a global one now. In the past people believed it was a regional one, that's no longer the case," Amano, director general of the IAEA, told CNN. "It is a global threat now and it combines nuclear weapons and missiles."
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".
