Amidst the 1963 March on Washington, black artists from Harlem to Los Angeles were focused on creating spaces where they could flourish, and through the lens of creativity, identity could be explored. Art, and creative thinking, would become paramount in not only empowering African-Americans to pursue equal opportunities, but allow for a variety of aesthetics to be developed that would represent a population both in and distinctly separate from mainstream culture.
A baby looks less than impressed with the rollercoaster ride her father created from the comfort and safety of their home in Kent. Video shows baby Holly, just six and a half months old, propped up in a chair that's held by her father in front of a large television screen. The screen shows a rollercoaster, taken from the view of a passenger who is sitting in the front seat.
Teens with heads down and locked into their phones is a bemusing scene that needs to be made fun of, and a new video seems to have captured that, while also highlighting the extreme dangers of texting while driving. In a campaign put forward by South Africa's Western Cape Government, the short, and extremely powerful, video begins with circus music fitting to watching people run into things because they're too busy texting. It's hilarious.
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".
