I was rummaging through my hard drive the other day looking for old photos to get rid of, just in case I witnessed a “blue screen of death” and lose everything (yes it’s also backed up). As I was looking, I noticed there were old photos of my colleagues’ response to the events of September 11. They all looked a lot younger. There were some individuals that I simply have no idea where they are now are after all these years; possibly retired. After all, it was 16 years ago.
A historic event will be happening in another week, one that will have even those who aren’t keen on scienc-y things staring up at the sky. On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will occur- the Great American Eclipse. The last time a total eclipse was witnessed in the United States was 38 years ago. At that time, the eclipse was only visible in Northwestern states, including Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.

Updated at 6:45 p.m. Louis Jordan said he spent his more than 60 days lost at sea poring over the Bible — and praying for rescue. Jordan, 37, said he was stranded in his boat, Angel, for the past two months. Still, the very thing that he said kept him captive was, at times, comforting.
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".
