Malaysians from all walks of life reached out to help those of differing faiths and ethnic groups during the crisis. THE most touching and inspiring story to emerge from the recent massive floods in Penang is Taman Free School surau committee members allowing about 60 non-Muslims to seek shelter as the water reached chest level. Initially, the flood victims – Chinese and Indians – were reportedly reluctant to use the surau out of “respect” for the premises. They wanted to go to a nearby temple.
THE arrest list reads like the who’s who of Parti Warisan Sabah. President Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal was arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over a probe into the alleged skimming of RM1.5bil meant for rural development projects. The MACC also arrested Warisan vice-president Datuk Peter Anthony and Warisan Youth chief Datuk Azis Jamman.
EXCLUSIVE: KOTA KINABALU: The fall of Islamic State (IS) in Raqqa, Syria, has brought a new menacing possibility – that Malaysian militants, some hardened with battle experience, may return home. “Forget about Marawi City, it is over. You must look at Raqqa. That war is over. “Where are the Malaysian militants going and where are they?” a Malaysian intelligence officer asked.
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".
