There is one singular truth that should pervade the thoughts of every would-be Himalayan trekker months before they step onto a plane: Nepali flat is not the same as American flat. You’ll need to bear it heavily in mind when planning a trek between teahouses in the Himalayan nation’s gorgeous high country, where locals quickly ascend lengthy stretches of slate steps in flip flops while tourists look on with wide-eyed incredulity.
In just a few months, any would-be investor will be able to buy a piece of the most popular on-demand music streaming service on Earth: Spotify. It may sound like an opportunity akin to getting in early on purchasing Amazon or Netflix stock, but don’t call up your broker just yet. This is a complicated situation, and one you may wish to steer clear of.
From gorgeous wallpaper OLED displays to wall-sized MicroLED monsters, the biggest evolutions in TV technology took center stage at this year’s CES conference in Las Vegas. But while high rollers may be licking their chops for the opportunity to buy the latest and greatest 8K screen for their home theaters, average consumers — especially those who are just now considering the leap to a new 4K Ultra HD TV — may be a bit nervous about the news of a new, next-gen resolution.
I wonder how the rappers whose music gets blasted on public transit out of idiots' Bluetooth speakers feel about it. Do they go after the idiots-with-no-sense-of-public-space market, or does it just, you know, happen?
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".
