Keith Richards. Eric Clapton. Sting. Waylon Jennings. Jeff Beck, Lenny Kravitz, Jimi Hendrix. Robben Ford. Bonnie Raitt. All of these artists – and more – have at least one thing in common. They all play Fender guitars. “The question may be more like, ‘What professional artist hasn’t played a Fender?’” said Gene Baker, one of the original Fender Custom Shop master builders.
The Oct. 10 mayoral primary in Jamestown was close – really close. With all three precincts reporting, the Guilford County Board of Elections website indicates there was a difference of only five votes between the first place and the last place. In fact, it was closer than that. Current Mayor Keith Volz and current Councilmember Lynn Montgomery tied, each with 33.73 percent of the vote. Newcomer Robert Frederick came in third at 32.54 percent.
You might say that Michael Renegar is obsessed with the story of Jamestown’s most famous ghost, Lydia. So much so that he has written three books not only on Lydia’s tale, but other mysterious happenings across the area. Renegar is now finishing up a new book, “Looking for ‘Lydia’ – The Thirty Year Search for the Jamestown Hitchhiker,” that focuses on his search for the real Lydia – but with a twist: The woman’s name might not be Lydia at all.
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".
