Russian leader Vladimir Putin takes just about every opportunity to go shirtless for the cameras, but Friday was the first time he publicly participated in the frigid dip that is a ritual of the feast of the Epiphany. He was among hundreds of thousands of celebrants who plunged into chilly water at sites across Russia and Eastern Europe for the holiday celebrated 12 days after the Orthodox Christmas.
A map tracking outpatient visits shows the levels of flu-like illness sweeping across the United States in the past 10 weeks. The images on the Centers for Disease Control’s FluView website assign an intensity level to each site based on visits to health care providers by patients with symptoms consistent with influenza. The “cool” greens indicate lower levels, the “warmer” oranges and reds the highest. Watch how the flu became an epidemic This flu epidemic did something never recorded before . . .
As temperatures dropped toward freezing and a cold rain fell, the line of the hard-core stretched down the block. The goal: a pair of Adidas. The very limited-edition shoe that inspired Tuesday morning’s frenzy in Berlin is more than just footwear. For 180 euros ($220 U.S.) it doubles as a one-year Berlin transit pass. Five hundred pairs of the Adidas EQT Support 93/Berlin were made, and 300 of them went on sale Tuesday at the Overkill store.
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".
