In a room full of shark experts, aspiring marine biologists, and ocean aficionados, UMass Boston junior Michelle Katz, 28, couldn’t help but notice the little girl sitting next to her. The child seemed utterly fascinated by the lecture. She listened intently and wrote furiously. “She took more notes than I did,” Katz said. They gathered Tuesday at the New England Aquarium to learn about sharks and, perhaps more important, about the female scientists who study the predators.
MALDEN — The percussive rhythms of traditional Syrian music and the smells of shawarma and samosas filled the air Sunday afternoon as thousands gathered for a celebration of Islamic culture intended to build bridges across faiths and erode negative stereotypes of the religion. “Just come hang out with a Muslim,” said Malika MacDonald, an organizer of the second annual New England Muslim Festival and director of the Massachusetts field office of ICNA Relief, a disaster aid agency.
The Rev. Mario Conte can often be found traveling with one or two relics of Saint Anthony stowed away in special containers inside his carry-on luggage. One reliquary contains a centuries-old fragment of the saint’s floating rib. A second one contains layers of skin from his face. As a travel companion for the saint in most English-speaking countries, Conte carries relics around the world.
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".
