A quirky and insightful take on Dubai from camel beauty pageants to a love for high-end labels and social media will be on display at a unique exhibition by Emirati artist Abdullah Lutfi. In his first solo event, thick black marker drawings capture the city’s skyline and snapshots of life in the Gulf. “That’s how I see it. I saw it in my brain - the tiger. I saw Burj Khalifa also.
Drop in for a coffee served by someone with special needs and watch artists work as part of an initiative to build bridges between the community and people with disabilities. Tucked away in a quiet corner of Dubai’s historical Al Fahidi district, Mawaheb — an art studio for adults with special needs — aims to foster an accepting environment whereby the community learn from each other. “The community should open up and get to know them.
Sailors are going months without being paid wages as ships are increasingly being abandoned off the UAE’s shores, a top transport official said. Despite erring owners being warned by the Federal Transport Authority, the number of sailors being stranded without food, water and fuel has increased over the past year. The FTA said it is currently dealing with 14 abandoned ships and about 50 unpaid sailors.
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".
