The real-life Rosie the Riveter, whose identity was unknown for seven decades, has died at the age of 96. Naomi Parker Fraley, who died on Saturday, was uncovered as the inspiration for Rosie the Riveter after a lengthy search by an American academic. Over the years a string of American women have claimed to be the inspiration for Rosie, the wartime worker of 1940s popular culture who became an enduring symbol of American feminism.
On January 26 1788, British settlers arrived on Australian shores for the first time and Captain Arthur Phillip's raised the Union Jack at Sydney Cove. Now celebrated each year as Australia Day, the anniversary has become an annual opportunity for the country to show its national pride. More than half of the country’s 21 million inhabitants celebrate it, either by going to an organised event in their community or by meeting up with family and friends on the holiday.
Callers to the White House were met with an unusual message from the answer phone this weekend - claiming the phone could not be answered because of Democrats. The message told would-be callers that there was no one to pick up the phone because Democrats were holding government funding "hostage". Donald Trump's staff changed the answer message after the US government went into a partial shutdown because Democrats and Republicans failed to agree on a funding deal.
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".
