You use augmented reality on a regular basis—even if you don’t realize it. If you’ve ever seen Who Framed Roger Rabbit or Space Jam, then you have an idea of what it looks like. The same goes for the yellow first down marker used in football broadcasts and virtual gauges in-flight training simulators. Augmented reality, or AR, blends the digital and real world in both subtle and profound ways.
Putting together of a list of recommendations for the best Showtime original series is tricky. The network’s programming has a reputation for starting off strong with audiences and critics before flaming out. Take Dexter, for example. It quickly became the network’s most buzzworthy show, but its widely mocked later seasons and finale make it hard to endorse. The same could be said for Homeland.
Meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the first of a new class of luxury flagship smartphones. Until the recent unveiling of the $1,000 iPhone X, the Note 8 was the most expensive device on the consumer market with an asking price starting at $930. While the Note line will forever be tainted by the memory of its exploding Note 7, the latest addition does almost everything right to distract you from its tumultuous past. But is it worth that near four-figure asking price? Let’s find 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 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".
