Rivera recites a long phase in Hawaiian. The words flow quickly. Most don’t understand what was just said, but it sounds important. So their host explains. “That means thanks for coming,” he says. People laugh. Rivera is just warming up. “My name is Larry Rivera. What is my name?”Rivera is clearly delighted. This is his stage in more ways than one. It’s his regular Wednesday night to perform at the Italian restaurant. It’s also a birthday party. His.
At least there’s no doubt about what you’re in for in this fourth annual trail race that promises to be just as challenging, and just as fun, as years past. There will be climbs so steep you’ll probably have to crawl and use the ropes to pull yourself up. Twists and turns, ups and down, lots of dirt, probably some falls, plenty of perspiration and endless amounts of inspiration.
“I can remember just perfect weather,” Kawakami said. “Not a cloud in the sky.”The clouds, and more, came the next morning. Kawakami, today a Kauai County councilmember, is married to Monica and is raising a family. Twenty-five years later, he remembers Sept. 11, 1992 well. He remembers the sound of the winds, while hunkering down at home, and the damage afterward. He also remembers how the island endured Iniki and how it came together.
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".
