A mother who tried to dance away her labor pain is getting a lot of attention online. Laughter may be the best medicine for most people, but for Yuki Nishizawa dancing may be her cure. When she went into labor, she decided to start grooving. Now, the video is all anyone can talk about on Facebook. Her dances of choice are Tootsie Roll and The Cupid Shuffle. Her husband recorded her moves and posted it online Wednesday. It had more than 3,000,000 views in 24 hours.
A Midtown power outage forced thousands of homes and businesses into the dark. One of those businesses was WMC Action News 5. The outage happened just before the 10 p.m. newscast. The generators at WMC Action News 5 cut on and powered some of the building for a while, but eventually the entire building went dark. The WMC Action News 5 engineering team said a pump on the generator failed, keeping it from starting up properly.
As the world waits for April the Giraffe to give birth live online, those of us in Memphis scoff at the hysteria, because we are old pros at Giraffe births. In February 2016, Marilyn, a Memphis Zoo giraffe, gave birth to Kenzie. Kenzie's birth happened while Marilyn was on exhibit.
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".
