This week the Indy's cover story is all about the Missoula Book Festival. What book are you reading right now? If you were on a date, what's the last book you'd want to see on your date's coffee table? Andy Meyers: I'm in theater, so usually my reading list is a stack of scripts for upcoming projects. I'm heading down to Arizona for a production of Man of La Mancha. Not my bestseller: Trump's biography, Art of the Deal.
In the waning days of 2015, Grant Kier found himself in a tough spot. Missoula County commissioners were deciding whether to adopt new subdivision regulations requiring developers to mitigate the loss of agricultural land. The proposed regulations had drawn support from the Missoula Community Food and Agriculture Coalition, long an ally of the nonprofit that Kier then headed, Five Valleys Land Trust.
Changing Shades makes for an unrivaled co-pilot on just about any western Montana highway. The driving rhythms, those see-sawing banjo licks, that slightly melancholic fiddleâ€”all synch with the pounding cadence of tires on pavement. Even the lyrics echo the timelessness of ridgelines rolling steadily past. At its heart, this latest album from Missoula's Lil Smokies is about memory, the kind only time can generate and only ambition can stir.
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".
