On August 21, the streets of Rio de Janeiro will begin to empty of fans and the world's media as the Olympic Games draw to a close. But it's not until September 7 that the world's best disabled athletes — many of whom have overcome medical difficulties and shocking family tragedies to represent their country — will gather in the same Brazilian stadiums to compete in the Paralympics. Once there, the competitors will receive far less exposure and recognition than their able-bodied counterparts.
Taco Bell is selling pre-orders of a mystery new food item — without even saying what it isTaco Bell already announced it is releasing a mystery new product to coincide with Super Bowl 50. But now it is offering Tex-Mex lovers the chance to pre-order the item to eat a couple of days before its official release. The Mexican restaurant giant's promotion is kind of like blind-dating, but with food. Let's hope it's not horrible.
Good morning. Here's everything you need to know in the world of advertising today. 1. Twitter's user growth stalled in Q4. Twitter had 320 million monthly active users in Q4, the same amount as in the previous quarter and below the 323 million expected by analysts. 2. Twitter wants to reassure investors that users still love it. Secondary metrics including searches, direct messages, and time spent are all up over the past year. 3. Twitter's new hope: "resurrected users."
@stephenkb Even if most Leavers did so for reasons that don't reconcile with remaining in the customs union, it does not follow that it's the popular will to leave the customs union. Leave scraped a majority with the support of soft Leavers. Most of 52% is probably less than 50%...
Not a fan of Brexit, but you have to hand it to them on this one. Bull fighting is an evil bloodsport that haunts the streets of the UK almost every weekend. The cockney Matadors have no place in modern Britain. Adiós! https://t.co/weagF2HVap
Two decades later, on the way back from the food bank, we will have to explain to our kids that we traded two decades of pay rises for:
Lower worker's rights

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".
