This month, Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced that it will ban additional cars from its roads in an effort to control traffic. This ban will take effect in February 2018. With a total land area of just under 278 square miles, Singapore is smaller than New York City. Roads already occupy 12% of the city-state’s total land area, which has a population of just over 5.6 million people.
Since early in Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency, he has pledged to end the Obama administration’s purported “War on Coal” and bring coal jobs back to ailing Appalachian communities. Experts quickly rose to argue that the main driver of coal power plant retirements has been the plunging price of natural gas driven by the fracking boom, and not environmental regulations or renewable energy subsidies.
The world’s largest floating solar farm is now generating electricity atop a former coal mine in China, according to The China Daily’s reports. More than six times the capacity of the previous record holder, the farm’s solar panels cover the equivalent area of more than 160 football fields as they float on top of the freshwater runoff that has filled the former mine. The solar farm includes 120,000 solar panels with a total capacity of 40 Megawatts.
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".
