The 24th of September 2017 is a date of which very few are aware, yet will be influential in setting the tone of European politics for the next four years. On this day German voters will elect the members of the 19th Bundestag, the lower house of the German Parliament and, subsequently, the next Chancellor and Government of Germany.
Since its founding in 2016 by now-French President Emmanuel Macron and political adviser Ismaël Emelien, En Marche has torn apart the French political landscape. It is now undisputed as a dominant force, with 309 seats in the National Assembly and more than 360,000 adherents. En Marche has been linked with the wave of Centrist politics sweeping the western world, being compared by some commentators to Spain’s Ciudadanos, Canada’s Justin Trudeau and even the United Kingdom’s New Labour.
The third time Stefania Pace was attacked, she knew it was time to leave Venezuela. In the first assault, three men with a gun robbed her outside her Caracas home; the second she was mugged at 10am. In the latest, in January, a man crashed into her car and pulled a gun on her when she demanded he take responsibility, she said. “I called my mom after I calmed down, and I told her: ‘Now is my time to go. I can’t stand it,’” the 28-year-old said.
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".
