Another cage-diving season is underway at Mexico's Guadalupe Island, where magnificent great white sharks will be on display for next few months. Among the dozens of sharks that reside seasonally at the remote land mass, 160 miles west of Baja California, is a large female named Lucy. We've selected this distinctive-looking shark for a video snapshot after asking Martin Graf, owner of Shark Diver, to alert us if his team witnesses quirky or unique shark behavior.
Two boys fishing with their fathers off New South Wales, Australia, enjoyed the thrill of a lifetime Saturday when they hooked a humpback whale. The group was fishing for snapper off Kingscliff when one of several humpback whales in the vicinity breached suddenly behind their boat. Lines were in the water and the whale – which might have been feeding on schooling bait fish – either became hooked or caught in the lines.
A freediver off Queensland, Australia, can attest first-hand that swimming with humpback whales, even though they mean no harm, is fraught with danger. Connor Lyons, 19, was snorkeling with two friends Wednesday off Noosa Heads when a humpback whale calf breached and almost landed directly on top of him. The harrowing moments were captured on video, and reveal the turbulence created by the 1-ton mammal.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
