MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Looked at a certain way, Blue Ridge Community & Technical College is the third highest populated college in West Virginia. Most recently, Blue Ridge had a headcount of 5,598 students. That’s inclusive of everything Blue Ridge offers, which means it includes not only students progressing toward degree programs but also those who are in other kinds of workforce training. It also includes some students still in high school.
SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Contemporary American Theater Festival, which runs all the way through July, is a tourist attraction among tourist attractions. Just this year, The New York Times singled out the annual theater festival on the campus of Shepherd University as a must-see:“We’ve picked the top festivals in theater, dance, pop and classical that we think you should see this spring and summer around the country,” wrote Steven McElroy of The Times.
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. – Cacapon Resort State Park, which got its name from a Native American term for “medicine waters,” would benefit from some tender loving care. The park’s history dates back to a Civilian Conservation Corps project in the 1930s. The original cabin from that project is still on site and in use. The current, 48-room lodge was dedicated in 1956. Natural beauty is in enormous supply but many of the amenities don’t match tourists’ modern desires.
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".
