When science-fiction literature exploded in popularity during the first half of the 20th Century, Mars was routinely featured. Sci-fi authors composed tales of so-called Martian aliens invading Earth to colonize humans. Yet, Mars is a desolate planet, devoid of living creatures, which are capable of creating spaceships that can journey into outer space. Nonetheless, scientists remain mesmerized with the red planet.
By cutting taxes and opening doors for foreign direct investments (FDI) in the country's Far East, which borders China, Mongolia, the Korean Peninsula and is in close proximity to Japan, Russia will be able to enjoy higher annual gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates again. The Far East covers more than 6 million square kilometers of territory, but is sparsely populated with 6.2 million people, many of them based in the western coast port city of Vladivostok.
China has long embarked on introducing innovations in science and technology that have set groundbreaking trends on the world stage. But did you know China was the first sovereign nation to print and circulate paper money for its citizens? Perhaps not, but much of the world remains unaware that Chinese society for many centuries had ushered in remarkable inventions and social systems to make life easier for one and all.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
