Look out for episode five of Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, starring Anna Paquin and Terrence Howard. Launching on Amazon Prime on Jan. 12, the series sees its main characters take trips into virtual reality, and return with their subconsciouses tweaked. It already aired in the UK, but PCMag got a sneak peek at the first few episodes. It's terrific; visually arresting and psychologically compelling, with plenty of those didn't-see-that-coming twists.
Tornado warnings are intended to usher people to safety. But when that alarm blares, Dr. Kevin Knupp, Professor of Atmospheric Science at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), and his team of Ph.D. graduates, instead don high-visibility vests and waterproof clothing, grab the keys to one of their fully equipped vans, and head outside.
When you think of Panasonic, you might think home electronics, but the Japan-based company, which turns 100 this year, can also be found on planes via seat-back entertainment and in cars via infotainment systems and batteries; 51 percent of the Tesla Gigafactory is dedicated to producing Panasonic-branded batteries, too. But the company's biggest play is called CityNow, a bid to become the go-to partner for cities that are ready for a serious futuristic upgrade.
ah, yes, fond memories of buying vinyl back in the day @WHSmith before I wandered into the delights of Churchill Square, circa '85 and found the heavenly @hmvBrighton with the coolest humans behind the counter. https://t.co/1Qez15W0Oz
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".
