From the Rio Grande to Cape Horn, nothing unites Latin America like the threat of U.S. military intervention. Washington’s past support for dictatorships in Argentina, Brazil and Chile in the 1960s and 1970s ushered in one of the darkest periods of the continent’s recent history. Now President Donald Trump's talk of a “possible military option” for Venezuela has gifted President Nicolas Maduro the opportunity to pose as the continent’s pre-eminent anti-imperialist.
Donald Trump has laid down one red line for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe: keep my finances out of it. But yesterday, Bloomberg exclusively revealed that Mueller had crossed that line. He’s expanded his investigation into a variety of Trump deals, from a mansion sale to a Russian oligarch in 2008 to the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013.
Singapore: Terrorism is entrenched in south-sast Asia and will only worsen as Islamic State's fortunes fade and foreign fighters skilled in bomb making and hijacking return from the Middle East, Singapore's defence minister said. "When we talk about endemic threats we usually refer to threats like dengue or tuberculosis, which means that it's here to stay, that despite years of effort you can't eradicate it," Ng Eng Hen told reporters ahead of the country's armed forces day on July 1.
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".
