China has officially reclaimed the title for world's fastest train. Come September 21, new bullet trains will be blazing their way across China at speeds of up to 400 km/h (248 mph).ÂConsider this China's comeback, after a two-train collision in 2011 that killed 40 people. The top speed at the time was 350 km/h, but authorities throttled them to 300 km/h after the fatal accident.
You can Kit Kat a lot of flavours, but perhaps cough drops aren't the best idea. The Kit Kat Nodo Ame Aji, or Cough Drop flavour, is made up of 2.1 percent throat lozenge powder. According to Nestle, the powder is kneaded into the white chocolate layers of the Kit Kat, to give it a "fresh and invigorating flavour." Naturally, the product is from Japan, which has previously produced Soy Sauce, French Salt and Sweet Potato Kit Kats. Cough syrup-flavoured Kit Kat though, certainly takes the cake.
This adorable rare white koala needs your help to find her new name. The little joey is among several koalas born at an Australian zoo in recent months, but has only recently emerged from her mother's pouch. She is the first white koala ever to be born in Queensland's Australia Zoo. The female koala, who has light fur, does not have albinism but owes her pale colouration to a recessive gene, thought to be inherited from her mother. However, her white fur might not last forever.
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".
