Four Maryland anglers have from the depths a rare and mysterious type of fish more commonly found in tropical or subtropical seas. The surprising catch of an opah was made last weekend after a 90-minute struggle by Austin Ensor and three buddies, who were targeting swordfish 62 miles beyond Ocean City. Ensor said he could tell by the strange fighting motions of the oval-shaped fish that it was something out of the ordiary.
It's hard to imagine a shark requesting the services of a dentist, or a person brave enough – or foolish enough? – to perform oral surgery on a very large hammerhead shark. But consider the images shared last week via Instagram by filmmaker Joe Romeiro, co-founder of 333 Productions. They show Romeiro, a lifelong shark advocate and conservationist, massaging a 13-foot great hammerhead shark's snout while carefully extracting broken teeth from a gum area that appeared raw and infected.
A famous gray wolf has been found dead in southwestern Oregon, marking the third known illegal wolf killing in the region this past year. The carcass of the collared wolf, a 4-year-old male cataloged as OR-25, was discovered on Oct. 29 in the Sun Pass Forest in Klamath County. OR-25, originally from the Imnaha pack in northeast Oregon, gained notoriety in 2016 when his tracking collar showed him crossing into California.
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".
