A week ago I was asked by the Fresno Chaffee Zoo to come document the work of doctors from the Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation. The team of four travels the world on their weekends away from their regular jobs to volunteer their skills to help captive exotic animals. Dr. Barron Hall, Dr. Charles Dyer and their team came to the Fresno zoo to help with dental work on one of the sloth bears and Kiki, one of the zoo’s female lions (and mother to Kijani, the young lion cub).
I’ve been wanting to visit Boston since I did my sixth grade state project on Massachusetts. Yes, that was a while ago. I love travel and I love history – and, of course, photography too. So all of those things came together in a great way for our week-long visit to Boston. Historically, it’s at the top for most important places in the birth of our country. The Freedom Trail makes it easy to find the very spots where critical moments in the forming of the U.S. took place.
She looks now like a little bitty tabby-striped kitten now, but the newest resident at a Valley big-cat shelter will soon be about 20 pounds of ferocious wild cat soon. Ru, a 5- or 6-week-old bobcat cub, is getting her bearings at her new home at Project Survival’s Cat Haven in Dunlap. Dale Anderson, founder of the Cat Haven, says that she was dropped off at the Cat Haven about two weeks ago by people who had found her but were unable to continue caring for the tiny wild cat.
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".
