HONG KONG: In the world’s most expensive housing market, there is an idea that has permeated over the decades: Hong Kong is short on land. The government has said that this in part is because of the city’s hilly terrain, which makes widespread development difficult. That statement often has architects scratching their heads. They say, if it had been true in the 1970s, it certainly is no longer today.
Channel NewsAsia’s correspondent Wei Du shares with us one of her favourite eating spots – ABC Kitchen. HONG KONG: Although Hong Kong has a wide selection of great dining options, it’s tricky trying to find a place that gives you value for money, yet without sacrificing on the quality of food and ambience of the restaurant. Take for example roast meat eateries.
SINGAPORE: The UN Security Council will vote on Monday (Sep 11) on new and tougher sanctions on North Korea, after the country claimed to have developed a hydrogen bomb that could be mounted on a missile to strike the US mainland. The new measures contain one crucial element that is different from the past - it would impose an oil embargo on the hermit state which has virtually no crude production. Analysts said that if the goal is to send a strong message to North Korea, it would succeed.
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".
