Even when shut, windows let in the sun’s light and warmth, which we usually welcome. But sunlight can fade our carpets or wake us up when we’d rather nap; the sun’s heat is sometimes too much in summer; and windows can be peeped into. People have long handled these downsides with curtains, blinds and other window treatments. Some modern windows can block light and heat with the touch of a button, but such “smart windows” usually...
Sunlight can be a glaring problem for many of our most advanced consumer electronics—so science is looking to moths for some help. Reflected rays can make it tough to see the screens on electronic devices outdoors and sometimes indoors, too. Cranking up the screen’s brightness can help, and many smartphones do this automatically, but that can sap battery life. Various antireflective coatings and screen covers typically involve...
Upper Dutchess County is a semirural wonderland of glorious landscapes, interesting people and, of course, the magnificent Hudson River, but a layer of feudalism runs beneath the surface. Many of the great riverfront estates have been acquired by the likes of Jann Wenner, a founder of Rolling Stone, yet a few of the aristocratic old families have managed to hold out, with the result that old money and new mingle eagerly yet uneasily — and both are resented by the hoi polloi.
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".
