Jeff Bloch, a Washington, D.C., police sergeant, on his Lemons racing cars, as told to A.J. Baime. I have been a police officer for 22 years, and I have been racing cars longer than that. I first heard about 24 Hours of Lemons racing in 2009 (Lemons, which recently changed its named from LeMons, is a pun on a bad car and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, regarded as the world’s most important sports car race). It’s a nationwide endurance...
Jeff Lotman, 56, the Los Angeles-based CEO of Global Icons, a brand-licensing agency, on his 1954 Lincoln Capri, as told to A.J. Baime. The Mille Miglia started out in 1927 as an Italian race from Brescia to Rome and back—a thousand miles of flat-out speed. In 1957, a famous driver named Alfonso de Portago lost control of his Ferrari, and an accident left about a dozen people dead. The race was canceled. But in the late 1970s,...
Merle Mullin, an artist/designer from Los Angeles, on her 1957 Ford Thunderbird, as told to A.J. Baime. On the occasion of my first anniversary with my husband Peter, in 2001, we had dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air. After, I asked the valet for my BMW station wagon. He returned with this beautiful white Thunderbird. I said, “This is not my car.” My husband said, “I guess you’d better get in and drive it home.” I figured out...
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".
