CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Robert Covington scored 22 points, rookie sensation Ben Simmons flirted with a triple-double and the Philadelphia 76ers handed the Charlotte Hornets their fourth straight loss, 128-114 on Tuesday night. Simmons had 16 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds as the 76ers won for the third time in the last four games.
We only got two days into 2018 before the industry was set on its ear by the announcement of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities themselves were just the tip of the iceberg, as confusion reigned over which patches worked, and what the negative consequences were over installing others. Based on recent trends, it will not likely be long before the next major vulnerability announcement.
Once again, we have been deluged by articles predicting what we should expect in the world of cyber security in 2018. While I don't intend to demean my fellow authors, I have a strong dislike for such articles. I have found in the past that they are either filled with predictions about trends are already happening, which hardly require any skill to foresee, or wild guesses, which are not much better than the result of rolling a 20-sided dice.
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".
