She was a tiny woman, barely four feet eleven, and quiet, the kind you wouldn’t notice on the subway or the crosstown bus. Her name was Maria Cruz. She was 35, but looked 10 years younger. She had come to America alone from the Philippines in 1992, leaving her family in an effort to find a better life. And she found it.
Domenico De Sole couldn’t stop smiling. Reclining in the back of his black Lincoln sedan, speeding toward New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 5, the bearded chief executive officer of Gucci Group N.V. was certain that now—finally—the cloud of takeover speculation that had engulfed his company for two years had lifted.
The Walt Disney Company executives arriving at Michael Eisner’s Bel Air home that Saturday afternoon in August 1995 were stunned, angry, and confused, and the reason could be summed up in two words: Mike Ovitz. That morning, Eisner had informed his top aides that he intended to hire the founder of Creative Artists Agency, the man sometimes called the most powerful in Hollywood, to become Disney’s new president. It had been a month of explosive news.
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".
