The Los Angeles Marathon will be run today from Dodger Stadium down to the Santa Monica Pier. There’ll be 25,000 people running down the street in the same direction. That’s what happens when you start a rumor that the FDIC is about to shut down the Bank of America. The Tulsa Daily World reported that an Oklahoma woman who in the past had been arrested and charged with incest for marrying her son was just sent to prison for marrying her daughter. There’s a lesson in this for all of us.
The Weather Channel reports a series of late winter rainstorms in Southern California which may have staved off a drought. After jogging for 12 miles in the rain during Saturday’s storm, I counted 28 leeches on me. I squirted them with bug spray and they started a talent agency. Men’s Health magazine published cardio advice to baby boomers recommending that jogging every day can add 7 to 10 years to your life. Yes it might, but to what end?
Papa John’s dropped its NFL sponsorship Thursday due to outrage over the National Anthem protests. Last night I dropped to one knee with four other comics in the Comedy Store parking lot in solidarity with the Anthem protest. However, they chased me away after I rolled four straight sevens. Harvey Weinstein was sued by the state of New York for sexually harassing women over whom he had power in Hollywood. His case triggered other cases that ruined politicians, TV anchors and actors.
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".
