Real-time chat app Snapchat was built to capture a moment, share it with friends, then move on. But it turns out the self-destruct function may have a fatal flaw. Utah-based Internet safety company Decipher Forensics revealed last week that the application which allows users to set a time limit of up to 10 seconds before their message "disappears forever" in fact stores images away from the naked eye.
Hippocrates cracked the code for a healthy life: diet and exercise. His theories, declared some 2,000 years ago and proved by modern medicine, apply to everyone—not just those with a medical degree. If walking is man’s best medicine, as Hippocrates estimated, just think of what regular cycling can do for the body. Researchers at King’s College London and the University of Birmingham found that older folks who exercised most of their adult lives were able to slow down certain aspects of ageing.
Biotech startup Wild Earth is developing “the new generation” of pet food: clean, high-protein snacks that are healthy, humane, and environmentally friendly. The first of the Berkeley-based firm’s products—”based on deep science”—consists of human-grade koji, a mold used in East Asian cuisine for making soy sauce, miso, and sake. Normally grown directly on rice, potatoes, and other grains, koji (Aspergillus oryzae) is mixed straight into Wild Earth’s beet sugar solution.
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".
