Earthquake-generated tsunamis threaten coastal areas and low-lying islands with sudden flooding. Although human hazards and infrastructure damage have been well documented for tsunamis in recent decades, the effects on wildlife communities rarely have been quantified. We describe a tsunami that hit the world's largest remaining tropical seabird rookery and estimate the effects of sudden flooding on 23 bird species nesting on Pacific islands more than 3,800 km from the epicenter.
With the steady drip feed of #GuptaLeaks it’s easy to forget the governance and development issues that South Africa should be prioritising. South Africans are at war – with shadowy foreign forces, with each other – and we’ve all become war correspondents, taking refuge in nihilism and gallows humour while our economy shrinks and our treasures are stolen.
The South African government spends more on basic education than on any other department or area, but public education outcomes have been ranked among the worst in the world. There are many possible contributing factors to these poor outcomes but little political will to fix the problems. The media and the general public often find it difficult to interpret or analyse the state of public education.
they hurt me first, hurt ppl hurt ppl. do not wave your hands in the face of an abused animal / wits fan, hold out the back of your hand, crouch to eye level with the fan, and speak to her / him in a calm, soothing voice. https://twitter.com/jared_za/status/953981667458408449
One game with AB and you’ll lose your swagger
He will bash you till you’re black and blue
He turns strike bowlers into carpet-baggers
Your good balls will go for only two
And in your cricket trousers you will poo
Joburg, playing at the Bullring
And the tourists don’t know how the ‘ring will be stinging
Win the toss, choose to do some fielding
You had no idea what this pitch would be yielding
Does it matter, when you’ve got Gayle
There’s no target big enough, there’s no way you can fail
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".
