If Mother Nature is a mad scientist, she saved her weirdest alchemy for the insect kingdom. It’s full of creepy crawlers with strange head appendages and way too many pointy legs. If you want to get a kick out of scaring yourself and your friends this Halloween season, you gotta check out the YouTube channel InsecthausTV, run by German insect breeder Adrian Kozakiewicz. He not only breeds and collects the most awesome (and ghastly) insects on Earth, he lets them walk on his face.
Every patient seeking medical treatment comes with a different set of cultural and personal experiences, which means every person has a different relationship to pain and trauma. Now a nursing book has been pulled for trying to narrowly lump those experiences together and perpetuate racist stereotypes.
Pokémon Go may not be as popular this year as it was last Halloween, but developer Niantic is still handing out plenty of treats. Starting at 3pm ET Friday, Pokémon trainers will encounter more scary Pokémon in the augmented reality mobile game, including new ghost-type Pokémon from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire’s Hoenn region. (Get ready to see Sableye, Banette, and more!) You’ll also find Pikachu wandering around with an adorable witch hat costume.
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".
