A bankruptcy judge on Wednesday approved the antitrust settlement between the Justice Department and merging airlines AMR Corp. and US Airways Group Inc., clearing the last hurdle to a deal that will create the world's largest airline. The order by Judge Sean Lane of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan comes almost exactly two years after American reluctantly filed for bankruptcy-court protection.
The mysterious appearance on the Internet of a nearly six-year-old news story about UAL Corp.'s 2002 bankruptcy-court filing caused investors to dump the stock Monday. After trading near $12.50 a share early Monday, stock in United Airlines' parent quickly fell to $3 on the Nasdaq Stock Market on heavy volume before trading was halted and the company issued a statement saying that reports of a new Chapter 11 filing were...
HELENA, Mont.—Toting a 30-pound rucksack, Mike Rogan squeezes his 6-foot-5-inch frame inside the safety bars encasing a steel ladder and climbs to the top of a 91-foot tower on the side of a Montana mountain just west of here. His mission: to change a light bulb. In an era of advanced radar and satellite-based navigation, Mr. Rogan has a job that has changed little since the dawn of aviation. He maintains giant lamps used to guide night pilots through the lonely peaks of western Montana.
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".
