A new government shutdown will severely diminish morale and production at the National Security Agency, say former agency hackers who were left hanging the last time Congress failed to pass a budget. The previous shutdown, when Congress couldn’t resolve whether to defund the Affordable Healthcare Act in 2013, wreaked workplace havoc on the NSA, many of whose workers were told to go home and wait to be called to work at an indefinite future date.
Two bears are the mascots for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games that follow. In December, citing evidence that the Russian government had created a vast, state-sponsored doping scheme , the IOC took the unprecedented step of banning the country from participating in the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February.
A hacker group, likely working on behalf of an unidentified government, has tried to take over the computers of dozens of South Koreans involved in the upcoming Winter Olympics, according to an analysis published this week by the cybersecurity firm McAfee.
@RMac18 The doubleawfulirony of that is that Giz story was grossly misreported. Staffers couldn't actually able to block conservative domains, at least not in the way that was described. Only reason that story wasn't debunked is because NDAs are a hell of a drug.
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".
