You’re sitting in the doctor’s office, and how are you killing time? Could be you’re bent over your cell phone, watching YouTube channels. ATT, which has a stake in how much time you spend huddled over said device, used SocialBlade and Google Trends to determine which YouTube channel is most popular in each state. And in Kentucky? No surprise. The WWE channel reigns supreme. West Virginia, Alabama, Pennsylvania and South Carolina also consider WWE the go-to pick on YouTube.
Kellee Edwards, the Lexington mother featured in a May 23 article about Camp Kesem, a camp for children with relatives who have cancer, died Thursday evening. The news was announced via posts on Facebook, which said she died surrounded by her family and close friends. Edwards knew she was dying when she first contacted the Herald-Leader and Kentucky.com with her story idea about Camp Kesem and the work it does helping children with sick relatives.
In 2003, the 40-foot wide mural depicting Fanny, the donkey mascot of the Big Ass Fan Co., annoyed a Lexington council member so much that he wanted the Winchester Road sign outlawed. A city attorney opined that the government is limited in its power to legislate taste, and the mural stayed put on the bricks of 800 Winchester Road, even after Big Ass Fans, now Big Ass Solutions, moved to another building.
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".
