The young mother was almost incoherent with anger. Shouting over the lusty cries of her baby she explained how the damp in her high-rise flat was making her child ill, and pulled a corner of wallpaper back to reveal ugly black mould marching up the plaster. Earlier, another council tenant had shown me a urine-soaked stairwell where, she said, drug addicts gathered every night, making her afraid to go out, a prisoner in her own home.
Swamps are treacherous places – ask Donald Trump, so keen to drain the one he believes festers at the heart of Washington DC. And in the vision of director Claus Guth and designer Christian Schmidt, ancient Rome had another, seething with intrigue and feverish with divided loyalty. And also just plain difficult to get around.
It’s no secret that jobs in the IT sector pay handsomely. In fact, for 9 straight months jobs in IT have advertised higher salaries than any other industry. With tech jobs making a strong claim to be the most lucrative on the market, we decided to take a look at which positions pay not just the big bucks, but the biggest bucks. Data Architects play a vital role in designing how an organisation’s data will be stored and managed.
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".
