When President Trump meets with Chinese leaders this week, he should consider an issue that has worried U.S. lawmakers for years: the possibility of the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei entering the U.S. market. Huawei is a telecom giant, so naturally part of this worry is about competition. It’s the third-largest smartphone maker worldwide and also makes the back-end switches, routers and other equipment that make cellular networks function. ...
A small part of me delights in President Trump’s hyperbole on North Korea. Take that, “Little Rocket Man.’’ Yeah! “Fire and fury,” “totally destroy” them – let ‘em have it. But that’s because for years I’ve read the North Korea propaganda machine in English translation as it churns out volumes about how superior they are to the West, how they’ve achieved the perfect society, and that we are all war-mongering primitives whose only goal is to take down the glorious and most benevolent Kim family.
After I reported from South Korea and North Korea in 2007, and saw the stark contrast between the vibrant, dynamic South and the backward, sad North, I thought that the easiest way to bring down the totalitarian regime in the North would be to collect three busloads of random North Koreans, drive them to Seoul in South Korea, give them a few hundred dollars each, and tell them to enjoy one of the world’s most vibrant and prosperous cities for three days.
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".
