Apple designed its animoji to be silent performers—companions to your iPhone X that can adopt your vocalizations and face gestures when requested. It's great that Apple didn't just dictate what animoji should sound like or, worse, adopt some kind of filter that translates your voice into animoji-speak. (As to how poop would sound, we hesitate to ask.) After watching beatboxer Rudi Rok present an incredible range of characterizations for each of Apple's animoji, we're willing to change our minds.
We need the 21st-century equivalent of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Code of Ethics. I’ve said it and heard it so many times this year that I’m almost sick of the phrase: The news media is under threat. Politically, culturally, and economically, news media is in dire straits. But what’s going to save it? Cooperation. Journalism has always been a solo sport — the race goes to the reporter and/or organisation that breaks the story first.
Not sure what's more bizzare: A game that has 7 OT's, or the celebration after one of the scores. Check this out: A Western Michigan University football p layer scores a touchdown. His sister goes out on field to congratulate him. The team gets penalized. But the Bronco's of WMU wind up winning. VIDEO
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".
