While he was struggling to come to terms with the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, Paul English traveled to one of his favorite places: the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in San Francisco. The memorial has become a magnet for people across the city. Its collection of quotations from King’s speeches — translated into the native languages of each of San Francisco’s sister cities in other countries — speaks to King’s status as an inspiration to the world.
Chrystal Kornegay would be the very first person to say that she doesn’t fit anyone’s traditional image of a banker, not even her own. But that is exactly what she became on Tuesday, when she was tapped as the first woman and the first person of color to lead MassHousing, the billion-dollar, quasi-public agency that drives investment in affordable housing across the state. Among other roles, it’s basically the state’s bank for financing affordable housing.
By his own admission, Marty Walsh was not an instant success as the 45th mayor of Boston. The former state representative from Dorchester took office in 2014 as a relatively little-known quantity to broad swaths of the city he now ruled. His grasp of city government was shakier than he realized; he would learn that City Hall is not a scale-model version of the State House but a substantially different entity, with different powers and priorities.
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".
