Thanks to the "Share a Coke" campaign, one couple will soon share a last name – and a life together. Just over three years ago, Christy Porta stood in line at a crowded New York City restaurant, trying to place her order. She had just moved from Baton Rouge, La. and was new to fast-paced city life, especially during the lunch rush. The man behind her on that hot August day, Matt Farley, saw that she needed help.
The Invictus Games, Prince Harry's biennial Olympics-style tournament for wounded veterans, start Saturday in Toronto. Fans will be watching to see if the 33-year-old Afghanistan veteran and actress girlfriend Meghan Markle make their first official appearance together in the city where they reportedly first met last year. (Her TV series Suits films there; he was promoting this year's event.)
Shania Twain teamed up with America’s Got Talent contestant and deaf singer Mandy Harvey for a performance at the show’s finale Wednesday. The duo sang Twain’s You’re Still the One, and while their voices paired beautifully together, there was even greater significance behind their performance. Both singers experienced times when they weren’t sure if music would still be part of their lives. The loss of her hearing due to a connective tissue disorder when Harvey was 18 left her heartbroken.
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".
