Over 60 people took part in the Time’s Up Cambridge Edition demonstration outside the University Library today. The action started at 2pm, where the crowd, mainly consisting of women, wore black and gathered outside the library’s main entrance to show solidarity with the campaign to end sexual harassment.
Picture the scene. It’s late at night in the Cambridge News office: coffee mugs and empty pizza boxes litter the newsroom, shirt sleeves are rolled up and big stories are being made — the Post Office has been robbed in a local village, new road bumps have been installed on Somersham Road. This is proper journalism, not the undergraduate pulp we churn out here at Varsity. Busy David Bartlett, the Editor, turns to his Chief Sub Editor; “are we ready to send off the front page” he asks.
Ed: This article was written prior to the reports of 23 November, which suggest that the San Juan may have been destroyed in an explosion shortly before it was reported lost. What would you do if, stuck in a submarine hundreds of metres below the surface, you had one day worth of oxygen left? This is the question which may have faced the 44 men and women of the Argentinian San Juan submarine, which has been lost at sea for over a week. Ships and planes from five countries have been sent out.
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".
