Against Me! guitarist James Bowman has some fond memories — and a band, The $cam$ — to reflect on when he thinks about the few years he lived in St. Pete, but he always comes back for the record stores and Bodega. “That place is really amazing,” Bowman, 37, says when we get to talking about the mini-vacations he takes down here with his five-year-old son Hollis and Fat Wreck Chords publicist Vanessa Burt. On October 25 & 26, Against Me!
The tropics are very active right now, with three hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin. One of these hurricanes, Katia, is in the southern Gulf of Mexico.The good news for those in Texas is that we are not expected any impacts from Katia. The cold front that moved through our area earlier this week is helping to keep Katia and its moisture well south of our area.In addition, a ridge of high pressure is building into the region.
We are all excited about Monday's total solar eclipse, but perhaps none of us is quite as excited as former astronaut Mike Massimino . He says he hopes everyone gets a chance to see the upcoming eclipse and have a safe and fun afternoon looking up at the sky.Even though we are not in the path of totality here in Houston, the sun will still be 67 percent obscured during the eclipse.
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".
