DONALD TRUMP is never far from controversy as US President, enraging the liberal elite with his policies and tweets. But what do grassroots Americans think of his leadership? In Detroit, which went bankrupt in 2013, we found a resurgent city with optimistic workers boosted by December’s mammoth tax cut. It is a biting -4C on a windswept industrial estate on Detroit’s outskirts, yet car production line worker Teonna Dunlap can scarcely hide her glee.
SHAKING his head in disgust, pig haulier Terry recalls his most distressing brush with militant vegans. Jumping down from his cab, the dad of two told me: “They’ve threatened to get my children from school and then torture them like we supposedly torture animals. “They get your name, which is written on the lorry, and then troll you on Facebook. "They threaten to set fire to your house, they call you murderers . . .
THEY’RE cute, cuddly and cloned. Delightful little macaques Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua are identical – despite being born two weeks apart. In a world first, Chinese scientists have created identical copies of a primate using a single individual’s DNA, though campaigners warned it was a “stepping stone to the creation of human clones”. Asked whether the same method could be used on humans, Dr Mu-Ming Poo, of the Shanghai research team, said: “Yes.
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".
