In the summer of 2013, during the first month of my internship at Ladies’ Home Journal, the magazine received a thirty-page letter from a lifelong reader. It was handwritten; shaky purple-inked cursive filled every side of the notebook paper. When I unfolded the pages, a few black-and-white Polaroid photos of a young woman fell out. In some, she was standing next to an unsmiling man in a Navy uniform.
Right now, the Harvard law school seal features three bushels of wheat on a shield. But the design is also the coat of arms for the family of Isaac Royall Jr., a slaveholder whose estate helped found the school. A small group of current students hope to change that. They’ve named their movement “Royall Must Fall,’’ and have organized to persuade the school that it should replace what they call a blatant symbol of the slaveholding era.
City Councillors approved Mayor Marty Walsh’s proposed $2.98 billion city budget Wednesday, ending a contentious few months filled with protests and student walk-outs over public school funding. The final budget gives $1.032 billion to the School Department for next year. The City Councillors voted 9-4 in favor of the school department’s allocation. After City Council rejected the proposed budget earlier this month, Walsh announced that he would add nearly $5 million to the district’s budget.
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".
