Four British charity workers have been kidnapped by a militant group in Nigeria. David Donovan, a former GP from Cambridge, and his wife Shirley, both 57, were snatched from their lodgings in the middle of the night. Over the last 14 years their charity New Foundations has been providing medical care to remote villages in the Niger Delta. During one 24 month period they treated 16,000 patients, carried out 500 cataract operations and vaccinated 4000 children against including malaria.
No wonder Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg still likes being called “Notorious RBG” — girl knows how to bring it. Yesterday the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Gill v. Whitford, the case that is challenging Wisconsin’s partisan gerrymandering scheme. Prognosticators are opining the decision will come down to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s swing vote, as the four conservative justices seem likely to side with the state and the four liberal justices will seemingly vote against the gerrymandering.
The most secure locks are also the bulkiest and heaviest. That’s because most attacks rely on brute force to break the lock. As long as a lock has no particular weak points (such as a vulnerability to “picking”), a thicker lock takes longer to bust open or cut apart. There are 3 types of secure lock to consider: U, chain and folding. But how can you tell which models are the most secure? The main lock manufacturers rate their locks using in-house security scales.
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".
