Wow! There aren’t many words to describe the feeling in our town right now. You already know the story, our team wasn’t projected to win that sports game, but somehow the team made it happen! “I watched all the minutes, up until the very end to make sure that it was all real, and boy oh boy was I excited to see that we pulled out the win!” commented senior, Andrew Minz, on his excitement about the game. Everyone, from fans like Andrew to the coach were excited about the victory.
The long awaited rankings are here. A simple stroll along any street in East Lansing will take you past a big ol’ house full of dudes. We could rank them based on anything, but we’re gonna go with the how dirty we think the bathrooms are. This place looks like a golf course. Any place with a well-trimmed lawn is full of guys with well-trimmed pubes, but they’re sure as hell not doing it themselves in the house bathroom. It’s called the castle and the toilets are the thrones.
The Michigan State University community has been bombarded with Facebook notifications because their friends were “rating” the school on Facebook, I guess. You get a text from a friend about it, trying to gauge the magnitude of this:And after a few texts about Scooby Doo erotica, you get one of those notifications too, and your world starts to fall apart. It seemed to be a slow roll over several hours, but all your try-hard friends did it for sure.
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".
