The U.S. Missile Defense Agency and the U.S. Navy have successfully intercepted a surrogate medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) with a pair of Standard Missile-6 (SM-6) surface-to-air missiles during a test off the coast of Hawaii. This is the second time the SM-6 has knocked down an MRBM-type weapon and the third time it has hit a ballistic missile of any kind. It also comes as concerns about ballistic missile programs in North Korea and elsewhere around the world are growing.
Boeing seeks to make the F/A-18 Super Hornet the Indian Navy's primary naval fighter of the future—one that can fly from both India's ski-jump equipped aircraft carriers in the near term and catapult equipped ones in the future.
Mattis has said time and time again that the only reason he came out of retirement to become Donald Trump's Secretary of Defense was so he could get back working with and for the troops in the field. He clearly sees America's soldiers, sailors, airman, and marines as a class of their own and is known to give off-the-cuff talks to groups of them whenever he can. During these impromptu speeches he seems to let much of his guard down and offers unique insights into his thinking on various topics.
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".
