“It dawned on me one, day: I’m done working just to make money. I was questioning the purpose of my life and I wanted to help others.”And with that, at the age of 63, Renee Reed made plans to leave high-paying tech jobs and begin life anew in the fitness industry. She now has her own studio in the Firdale Village Shopping Plaza, a bright space with high ceilings, a yellow couch, a fleet of rowers and lots of colorful kettlebells — weights that look like bowling balls with handles.
It’s all pretty cool: She’s 25. Her title is puppet fabricator. She wears jeans to work and she works at a place called the Stoopid Buddy Stoodio in Los Angeles. One of the TV shows she’s involved with just won an Emmy. Last month, “Robot Chicken,” an adult stop-motion animation series that airs on cable, earned the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Short-Form Animation. “That was fun and surprising,” Bryn says.
Mary Garner played a variety of sports in high school but maybe her favorite, if she had to choose, was tennis. “I got to get out of classes for tennis, “ she said with a laugh. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, her participation in sports wasn’t a given. Title IX, the federal law requiring schools at all levels to offer girls and women equal access to athletics, wouldn’t be passed until 1972. The school she first attended didn’t offer athletic activities for girls. “Zero,” she said.
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".
