Perhaps it was trading cheers from a double-decker float with nearly half a million parade-goers on St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin.It may have happened while sipping tea with Irish President Michael D. Higgins at his house.But treading the hallowed turf of Croke Park Stadium in the midst of the club football championship euphoria is also a contender.The possibilities of when I was officially bowled over by Ireland’s famous charm, are numerous.To be sure, it was in the early days of a mid-March...
For more than a hundred years, blind and visually impaired people in Maryland have been participating in employment and training opportunities at Blind Industries and Services of Maryland. At the organization’s Halethorpe facility, participants take free classes in Braille, cane travel, independent living skills and computer technology.

The Restoration diarist John Evelyn was a man beset by curiosity. Late in life he lamented the “insatiable coveting to exhaust all that could or should be heard upon every head” that had sabotaged his “most glorious and useful undertakings”. Excess curiosity had proved the enemy of achievement. Yet Evelyn admired curiosity in others, not least his close friend and fellow diarist Samuel Pepys, “a very worthy, industrious and curious person”, as he once described him.
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".
