Bangladeshi worker Raihan Mohammad and his fellow workers had gone about their usual tasks, casting cement on the top deck of a road viaduct, that when completed, would link the Tampines Expressway to the Pan-Island Expressway. They were more than halfway done with cement works on the central deck when the structure came tumbling down, said Mr Raihan, 24, referring to the collapse in Changi about two weeks ago that killed one worker and injured 10 others, including himself.
At the end of a rugged path that cuts through slopes of green olive trees swaying slightly in the light Italian breeze is a hillside clay quarry. The earth that is mined here looks rough, uneven and pebbly. Indeed, it is hard to imagine that this gravelly clay, chunks of which crumble easily in my palm, is the prime ingredient of a best-selling beauty mask marketed all over the world.
A wealthy businessman from New York, Mr Donald Trump assumed public office for the first time when he entered the White House on Jan 20 after he defeated former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in an upset. On Saturday (April 29), he completes 100 days as US president. During interviews with the press on the milestone, he touched on his new job, whether he thought the 100-day mark was important, and more.
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".
