While she rolls through the questions like a champ, Chicago singer-songwriter Xoe Wise expresses frustration that she’s still being asked questions such as “What is it like being a woman in rock?” The 27-year-old says she’d like to see a day when the music industry and society has moved past all that. “We’re just not there, so I can’t say, ‘Oh, I want to forget about it,’ when it just still feels like a problem,” Wise says. “I think bringing it up is really important right now.
HOUSTON - From flames, come ashes and from ashes, the phoenix rises. “The Phoenix is a symbol, and it’s been around for thousands of years, of rebirth,” explained artist Bobby Bacon. “It kind of was a great metaphor for Harvey because all of us, whether we were affected 2 or 98 percent, all of us had something happen to us with Harvey.”That’s what inspired artist Bacon’s design of the city of Houston’s float for the H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade.
On Aug. 26, when Harvey slowly hovered over Houston, HPD Chief Art Acevedo was out in it. As the rain beat down and floodwater filled the Greenspoint area, he broadcast live on social media. “I wanted people to see there is no exaggeration here,” he explains. That night, standing in chest-deep water and watching his officers pull people from flooding apartments, is when Harvey hit the chief. “I realized, ‘Holy moly. This is just starting and look at what we’re dealing with already,’” Acevedo says.
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".
