Kids who grow up on a farm often migrate to the big city as soon as they can. Bill Hooper went in the opposite direction, a bit more slowly. Reared in what he calls a “St. Paul establishment” household (Exhibit A: a degree from Cretin-Derham Hall), Hooper now spends most of his time toiling in vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. And loving every minute of it.
Rushville during WWII was much like many other small towns country wide. I was around 5 when the war started. I along with my parents had been to Indiana University visiting my only brother and sibling. He had pledged Delta Upsilon Fraternity and we were there to check out the Frat and them us. We showed up around noon on Sunday, December 7, 1941. By the time we got there, the word was out about the Japanese surprise attack at Pearl Harbor.
Summer time was always my best time when I was really young. No school, freedom from lots of things, swimming in rivers, ponds and creeks and Lake Douglas in August. We did not have a pool in town at this time. All we had was a wading pool in Memorial Park that is today the Gazebo. The building is on the outside cement walls of the wading pool. We enjoyed it but a foot or two of water just did not do much for us.
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".
