It is definitely dark. Most probably cold. I managed to silence the alarm with ninja speed. Or so I thought. My wife tells me to get out of bed and go running. I think I heard her mutter something about my physical appearance, but I can’t be sure. I creep past my kid’s bedroom and out into the street. Confirmed – it is definitely cold. I begin my shuffle and successfully manage 7km. Slow enough that I may have been mistaken for a power walker, but marginally faster than if I stayed in bed.
When I attended my first Summer Camp in 2012, I didn't know what to expect. I had never been to a camping festival before, never been to an outdoor event of that magnitude, and hadn't heard of most of the bands, other than a passing reference here and there. What I thought would be a one-time experience ended up becoming a major part of my life, and one of my most looked-forward-to weekends every year.
By ANDREW HOWIEChicago takes St. Patrick's Day seriously. With the dyeing of the river, the parades and the overall revelry, it's a pretty sweet time to be in the city.This year, however, one celebration looms over all: the triumphant return of the almighty Ween to the Aragon Ballroom.
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".
