Virtual reality continues its push into the mainstream. Kicked off by the success of the Oculus Rift, there is now a growing range of virtual reality options. You can get your fix on a game console with Sony’s Playstation VR. You can go with the classic VR platform led by Oculus and HTC’s Vive (which I reviewed a few weeks back). And more recently there’s another option for the PC: Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality, or WMR. That’s the subject of this review, the HP WMR headset and controllers.
Not all reunions, even those teary-eyed family reconnections after years apart, produce a happily-ever-after storyline. Sometimes, not being together is actually best. Such was the case for Detlef Wiedenhoft, who, as a young boy, got stuck behind the Berlin Wall in East Germany and could not join his mother in Canada for 24 years. Readers tried to help this man see his mom.
It is the Christmas list of a 12-year-old; a phone and Beats headphones. Pink or rose gold ones would be perfect. Then there are the wishes that don’t go under a tree. Kaleigh Wright-Barton has those, too. Less time on intravenous, another year without a major surgery, the family together under one roof, just not in a hospital. “Fingers crossed,” says Kaleigh. She says that a lot. “This is probably the first year that we’re a little at ease,” says Echo Wright, 30, looking at her daughter.
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".
