The U.S. will continue to lead the international effort to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear and missile development program via sanctions, but has warned that military options remain on the table. Twenty nations gathered in Vancouver to discuss the threat of North Korea nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, a summit co-hosted by the U.S. and Canada announced in November following the test-launch of Pyongyang’s most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) to date.
Two Chinese men are accused of breaching Japanese sanctions exporting banned goods to North Korea, Japanese media reported. Police in the city of Osaka suspect a 41-year-old chief of a trading company and a 42-year-old board member of another company who both reside in Japan of having made millions of yen selling goods such as alcoholic drinks, condiments and shampoos to North Korea via China, Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun reported, citing police sources.
North Korea's state-controlled press has hit out at President Donald Trump’s tweet boasting about the size of his non-existent nuclear button. An article published in the ruling party mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun newspaper on Tuesday mocked the president as a “lunatic madman” for his Twitter outbursts, explicitly mentioning the name of the social media platform, which is blocked in the country.
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".
