An elderly gentleman complimented me on the way I parked my car the other day. And, unlike that lady at the library that one time, he wasn’t flipping me the bird as he said it. He’d observed me nimbly navigate my Subaru into a tight slot on a New Haven street and said he felt like he was watching a video game. I said thanks and as I walked away he was still going on and on to his wife about my perfect park job, like he’d just witnessed greatness not seen since the days of Red Grange.
Quinnipiac blanks Brown on eve of rivalry game with YaleHAMDEN — Quinnipiac was in unchartered waters heading into Friday night’s home game with Brown, and not in a good way. With three wins through the first nine games, the Bobcats were off to their worst start since coach Rand Pecknold’s inaugural season 23 years ago. And since joining ECAC Hockey in 2005, they’d never lost their first four conference games before this season.
Yale faces Harvard in ‘The Game’ with roles reversed a year laterNEW HAVEN — A year ago this week, as Yale and Harvard prepared to meet in Boston, the ancient rivals were in very different positions. Harvard needed victory to clinch a share of the Ivy League championship. Yale, coming off perhaps the most dismal loss of a season filled with them, was simply looking for something to anchor onto for next season.
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".
