An Australian diplomat has died after accidentally falling from his balcony in New York City while drinking with friends. Julian Simpson, 30, the second secretary to the Australian Mission to the United Nations, died in the early hours of this morning when he fell from a 7th floor balcony to a 2nd floor landing at his apartment on Clinton Street in Manhattan, a NYPD spokesman told the ABC.
It's a drag race like no other — Washington DC's annual 17th Street Halloween High Heel sprint. Not far from the White House, dozens of dolled-up drag queens take to the streets in their finest frocks to celebrate diversity and freedom, all with a healthy dose of competition. Drag queens are jostling for prime position at the start line — some are stretching, others are doing last minute hair checks. Her strategy? "Kneecap people on the way. No, kidding. I just sprint as fast as I can."
Before 10pm on Sunday, Taylor Winston and his date were dancing the two-step backstage at a country music concert in Las Vegas. At one point he dropped down on his knee and twirled her around. He stood up and dipped back into her arms, and they both laughed. It wasn't long before their night of joy turned to one of horror. As they were standing in the crowd listening to Jason Aldean finish his set, gun shots rang out.
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".
