An electric-violin-playing minimalist swaps the big apple for a tiny house that’s still huge on styleOn a blindingly sunny Monday afternoon, I find myself in South Fayetteville trying to figure out what a “tiny house” is. Once, twice, three times, I slow down in front of a house in this eclectic, up-and-coming neighborhood, only to move on after deciding that while the house may be on the small side, it doesn’t quite fit the tiny bill of the domicile I’m in search of.
Rising to the Occasion in Northwest ArkansasWhere I come from, all for-serious home cooks have a specialty, that one dish that’s lauded as simply “the best” by all who know them. As in, “Aunt Sally makes the best potato salad—probably because she puts Italian dressing in it.” Or “You know what makes Dad’s red beans and rice the best?
When it comes to enjoying the great outdoors in our state, Arkansans are thoroughly flush with optionsWe’re not just talking any ol’ ponds or streams here, folks. These are truly Arkansas’ most superlative bodies of water—the biggest, the coldest, the most hashtag-worthy. And while we don’t intend to make waves, there’s certain to be some debate regarding any definitive listing. Just ask Jim Petersen, a former hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey, who assisted us in our research.
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".
