A native of Prince Edward Island, Canada, André is deeply embedded in a foreign land: the South. The food is fried, the weather is hot, but he still gets up in the morning and tells stories one sentence at time – just like everybody else.

In Madison County, Myanmar refugees build a new home
The purple hulls of lablab beans dangled like a thousand scimitars below a trellis built from young sweet gum trunks. Oblong bitter melons drooped through the bloom-studded canopy, and a thirty-five-year-old man named Eh Kaw Htoo plucked a vegetable from the vine, shaking droplets of cool September rain off the leaves.
On a crisp fall morning on the eve of the 2016 US presidential election, the bitterness of politics felt a world away inside Mama's Boy, a breakfast restaurant in the college town of Athens, GA. Sweet biscuits silenced rancor. Students, professors, grandparents, and kids shared quiet conversation between the clinks of coffee mugs.
Since Election Day isn't considered a national holiday, most Americans will be at the office during the democratic process that decides the fate of our country. A stack of invoices or a complicated project might distract you, but it definitely doesn't take the edge off.
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".
