If the financial success of the "Bad Moms" movie franchise is any indication, there are a lot of women out there who can have a bit of a laugh at the Madonna-whore dichotomy that gets foisted upon them. But the truly "bad" women of history — some who remain infamous after centuries, others who are largely forgotten by the wider public — faced greater risks than hangovers and shunning in the after-school pickup line.
Artificial intelligence is gaining interest and ground, with major players investing heavily in areas as disparate as drone footage analysis, app development platforms and personal digital assistants. Google is investing in the educational side of AI, as well. The tech giant recently announced a free 15-hour machine learning training course, aimed at users of all experience levels (though knowledge of introductory algebra and some proficiency in programming basics and Python will come in handy).
International Women's Day is today, and it's true that there are many things for women to celebrate in 2018. In Canada, half of our cabinet ministers are female. In the United States, women are expressing interest in running for office in unprecedented numbers, and in late 2017, several secured wins in unexpected parts of the country. Globally, extreme poverty — which is more likely to affect women — has been cut by half since 1990, according to the United Nations.
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".
