A global threat requiring a global response. That’s how NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg described North Korea a few days after its September 2017 nuclear test. EU High Representative Federica Mogherini used similar language, casting North Korea as a ‘grave threat to regional and international security’. While both acknowledged in strong terms the threats posed by North Korea, the language they used paled against the more pugnacious tone of the US administration. This divergence matters.
For someone who says that “talking is not the answer” to dealing with North Korea, the 45th President of the United States seems to do little else. But the events of the weekend mean that it’s more important than ever to know what the plan behind the posturing might be. In April the new Trump administration invited the entire US Senate to attend a classified briefing on North Korea at the White House.
Music fans in the Temecula Valley don’t think of Albuquerque when they see the letters ABQ. What jumps to their minds is Adler, Blackburn and Quint. Husband and wife Robin Adler and Dave Blackburn joined forces with John Quint several years ago and together they are creating a live music experience second to none. How did these powerful musical forces combine, I wondered? I went to Dave and Robin’s Fallbrook studio to find out. The two met in 1989. She was a music student at Mira Costa College.
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".
