Is there anything special you remember about the year 1982? Were you even born then? In 1982, Gary Locke was running for a seat in the state legislature. KIRO 7 anchor Steve Raible began his broadcasting career at the station. The first USA Today was published. Time Magazine named the Computer as the Man of the Year. The first CD player was sold in Japan. It was also the Year of the Dog, according to the Chinese Zodiac. If you were born in 1982, you would be celebrating your 35th birthday this year.
A woman recently won $758 million, the biggest grand prize of a single lottery ticket in U.S. history. Some lottery losers wonder if they will ever be that lucky! If you think of luck in terms of dollars, you are missing the point. Most people like me, who haven’t and will never win the lottery, are in fact quite lucky, without knowing it. Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, called it “ignorance luck.”Last year, I witnessed a hit-and-run accident on South King Street. The victim could have been me.
Medina Private Club, one of two hookah bars in Chinatown, closed recently. The new business will be an art gallery of Chinese antiques, opening this month, the property owner told the Northwest Asian Weekly. Two years ago, Donnie Chin, a community hero and unofficial patrolman of the Chinatown International District, was caught in a crossfire between rival gangs on South Lane Street in the middle of the night, close to both King’s Hookah Lounge and Medina Private Club. He died from his wounds.
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".
