SILVERTHORNE — You know you are a part of an intimate theater experience when there’s the possibility of having a sardine land in your lap. During the Lake Dillon Theatre Company’s production of “Noises Off,” I found myself so close to the action that I was flinching through much of the farce’s raucous second act.
It’s always farther to the top than you think. Standing at the bottom of a ski hill during the summer, grass and wildflowers brushing your ankles, the summit seems just a couple of switchbacks away. And if you’re a skier, used to getting a lift to the top in mere minutes, your perspective is further skewed. During the middle months of the year, the elevation of a ski hill is working against you. But the effort will be richly rewarded. Warm weather reveals a whole other world waiting under the snow.
ELDORADO SPRINGS — In my family, summer is all about water and our frequent immersion in it. As of early July we had snorkeled in saltwater, cooled off in freshwater lakes and been at the pool for swim practice every morning. So it was with the palates of connoisseurs that my daughters and I pulled off the highway just south of Boulder to visit Eldorado Springs — or so I thought. “Mom, what’s artesian water,” my youngest daughter asked as we passed by the Springs Pool in search of a parking spot.
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".
