Nacho Bell Opens at the Factory Tomorrow: The idea came to Mary Anne Carter in a dream, and now she's making it into a reality at the Factory. At this semi-functional installation of a 1990s-era fast food restaurant she's calling Nacho Bell, the artist will serve nachos made of crushed up Taco Bell tacos at the bar. Visitors can add traditional and non-traditional toppings such as nacho cheese, Cheetos, Doritos, JalapeĂąos, and other things that end in "os."
The nonprofit transit advocacy group Seattle Subway endorsed urban planner Cary Moon for mayor. In their statement, the group gushes over Moon's promises to prioritize transit improvements over single occupancy vehicles and to speed up Seattle light rail projects with city money. Seattle Subway was instrumental last year first in pushing for a big, ambitious light rail package and then in campaigning for the $54 billion Sound Transit 3. It's hard to ignore the obvious here.
Today in Heart-Warming: A Music Therapy Program for Trauma-Affected Children Announced in Honor of Chris CornellToday would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday—and so far, it’s been a lot of sad news (Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park and friend of the late legendary grunge singer, committed suicide). But here’s a bit of news that will help ease the pain of a rough day: Seattle non-profit Childhaven has announced a new music therapy program for children in Cornell’s name.
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".
