Near the foot of his long driveway in Upton, Mass., Bill Johnston shows off his mews, an archaic term in falconry for structures that house birds of prey. Johnston’s mews holds five birds — a Harris’s hawk, peregrine falcon and a Siberian goshawk. He also has a gyrfalcon named Fiona and a gyrfalcon hybrid named Roofus. The mews resembles a condo complex, only for raptors. Each bird has its own room with a door and a barred window and perch inside.
At the local burrito chain Boloco, the majority of customers pay with cards. Many even skip the wait in line by using the restaurant’s smartphone app or ordering kiosks, which allow the company to be more efficient, says CEO John Pepper. "There's a line of people. you don't feel like waiting the line and you just take control of your order yourself. You come take a seat," Pepper said.
These last few months, it seems a single day hasn’t passed without a new story about sexual misconduct. Some are clear-cut, like Harvey Weinstein. Others have sparked debate, like Aziz Ansari — a case that focused many more people on the issue of consent. That conversation is starting to become a cornerstone of sex education in Boston high schools.
@megansarahj I KNOW. It’s something I like to picture in my mind every now and then. It’s an old house and looks the same (minus the countless collectibles) but it’s fun to picture him sitting in a chair in his glittering garb.
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".
