Half my life ago, I wanted to be a news anchor on TV so I could inform and enthrall thousands of viewers during the evening news program. Eight years later, a New Mexico hippie put a medium-format film SLR camera into my hands and told me to have fun. Ever since, I’ve been behind the camera — not...
Saquon Barkley is becoming the most talked-about commodity in college football. Part of it is his grinder mentality combined with a flair for the breathtaking. Eighteen-wheel power with a Porsche engine. That's his long-awaited Heisman Trophy opening. Because the Penn State tailback won't need inflated statistics and rushing numbers to win the beauty pageant in December. Not when he can deliver exactly what fans and analysts want each week — the dynamic and the dramatic.
The concept may be as much a millennial idea as the woman who came up with it, but don’t let that underestimate Taylor Glessner, the woman at the reins of a Lancaster dessert shop focused solely on cookie dough. Glessner, 21, of Lancaster, is a third-generation entrepreneur whose family started the Zook Molasses Company based in Lancaster. She got the idea while part of OneLife Institute at Lancaster Bible College in March.
When Amy and Todd Howdyshell started cooking up chili at the Seven Valleys fire hall on some bingo nights, they never imagined that their recipe would evolve into one of the top recipes in the nation. This month, the pair were one of ten named into Hormel Chili’s “America’s Best Firehouse Chili” contest. The public now votes to decide three finalists, who will be flown to New York City to compete in a live chili cook-off.
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".
