Organisers were determined: "to showcase our advances in technology." The "Hubot", named Hubo, made its appearance at the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and technology, in Daejon. This special Torch Relay leg began with Torchbearer, Professor Dennis Hong, founding director of the Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory at UCLA, in Los Angeles, riding in an automated car. Then came the Hubot's own moment to shine when it took the flame from Professor Hong.
The opening of the Games is now little more than two months away. There has already been at least one marriage proposal during the torch relay so far, and in Jeonju, a South Korean wedding has formed part of the journey of the flame. The bride wore red as she arrived in a traditional flower carriage to meet her groom. The meeting of the Torches is always described as a "kiss" and never can the term have been more appropriate.
The date was announced after a meeting today of the Japanese Imperial Household Agency. Eighty-three-year-old Akhito will be succeeded by 57-year-old Crown Prince Naruhito, which will mean a third generation of the Japanese Royal Family will open an Olympic Games when he makes the traditional proclamation at Tokyo 2020. "It gives me a profound sense of awe that we have taken a significant step towards the throne's accession," said Japan's Prime Minister Shinzō Abe.

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".
