Global carbon emissions in 2017 are expected to be around 2% higher than last year, hitting a new, unwanted record high. The news is a blow to hopes that emissions had peaked, and to efforts to keep global warming below 1.5°C, as agreed in the Paris climate accords. New research by scientists at the University of East Anglia and the Global Carbon Project suggests that after three years of little to no growth in total global carbon emissions, 2017 will see a relatively major spike.
A "natural fertility specialist", Fiona Kacz-Boulton, warns that women with "a steady income" who "[wear] the pants in the relationship" are "acting masculine and expecting your body to perform in a feminine way". She gave the example of a teacher, a head of department, whose husband was self-employed, and who struggled to get pregnant. To be clear, she isn't just talking about putting off having children, or being too busy to have sex.
There’s new NHS data out showing how many 11- to 15-year-olds are drinking, smoking and taking drugs. This is what it shows. Since 1982, the NHS in England has been keeping data on the number of young people (aged 11 to 15) who smoke. Back when they started, more than half of children had tried a cigarette by the time they turned 15. In 2016, according to their latest data out today, it was less than 1 in 5. In that period there have been a lot of governmental efforts to reduce smoking.
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".
