A Golden Dawn Member Murdered an Anti-Fascist Rapper in Athens Last Night
Late in Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s now classic cult hit, a gigantic, naked, neon pink and blue hologram approaches Ryan Gosling’s K. “You look like you’ve been a good boy” she says pointing at him. As she retreats back to her original position on the side of a building, a product placement for an AI companion, her tagline appears under her, something along the lines “Joi, everything you want to see”.
Μια σύντομη απάντηση/fact-checking στον κ.ΔένδιαΧτές, με αφορμή την τραγική δολοφονία του δικηγόρου Μιχάλη Ζαφειρόπουλου, ο πρώην υπουργός Προστασία του Πολίτη Νίκος Δένδιας έγραψε στο προσωπικό του twitter τα εξήςΕυτυχώς για την χώρα αλλά δυστυχώς για τον κ.Δένδια οι δηλώσεις του αποδεικνύονται ανακριβείς, όπως μας έχουν συνηθίσει άλλωστε οι πολιτικοί της ΝΔ τους τελευταίους μήνες.
“Counterproductive”, “disproportionate”, “utterly idiotic”. These are just some of the expletives used in the last couple of days to describe the truly bizarre behaviour of the Spanish police in the lead-up to a self-organised independence referendum in Catalonia, which — while supported by the local government — has no actual legal bearing, as referendums are not sanctioned under the Spanish constitution.
But follow the disinformation campaign here: Vroutsis' son is indeed a convicted robber etc. The possibility of distance between the two is erased. He suggests even that Syriza sanctioned the move. Not that the two are not on the same page politically. This is propaganda.
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".
