“Girls are following me around – they’re ruining my whole life!” cried Keith Partridge in a fraught moment on the 1970s sitcom The Partridge Family. Keith, played by David Cassidy, was the show’s heartthrob, and for its four-year run Cassidy’s offscreen life mirrored his. Teenage girls didn’t just follow him around – they spirited themselves into hotels, camped in the air-conditioning unit of his house and howled at the sight of him.
Logic, the 27-year-old Maryland rapper whose birth name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, grew up poor in one of his state’s wealthiest counties, as the biracial son of drug addicts. His youth was scarred by the racial slurs slung at him by his white mother – “Papa was a black man, mama was a racist,” his song Mixed Feelings declares – and several siblings sold crack.
Every day we hear from our corporate members about the challenges they face finding workers with the right skills for a wide range of jobs. These are businesses of all sizes from across the state and in every sector. It is time to start thinking about education and workforce as a partnership, because the two depend on each other for success.
@ArielRed2 Thanks, but the only words I remembered were a fragment of a line - "sea like mylar" - which produced no results. Turned out that I'd remembered it incorrectly. Finally tracked it down when the word "Nikki" came to mind.
You know how you'll hear a song once, then spend years being haunted by it because you don't know the title and can't track it down? This is mine. By Jackie Cain and Roy Kral, who wrote it in their daughter's memory. https://t.co/CM2nE3cG68
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".
