Thursday. May 25. 1989. That's the day "we" won the Stanley Cup. I remember Friday, May 26 too - because that morning, I boarded the school bus wearing a Flames jersey, a Flames hat, and carrying a homemade Flames flag - a little something for all the Oilers fans on board to see. (Growing up near Didsbury, central Alberta was what you'd call disputed territory - kids could cheer for either Calgary or Edmonton and still be able to justify it geographically.
Before he was Dr. McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey was Ronald Miller. Ronald Miller was the hero of the ‘80s film “Can’t Buy Me Love,” about a nerdy high school student desperate to be accepted by the cool kids. When popular cheerleader Cindy Peterson suddenly needs to replace a wine covered dress, Ronald gives her the cash to do it. The catch? She has to pretend to be his girlfriend so the jocks will like him. She does. They do. There are laughs. There are kisses.
Trying to write headline for our story on Bruce Cockburn being inducted in the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. Going with "Wondering Where the Lines Are"....cuz singers write lines. Everyone catch the reference though? Or too obtuse?
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".
