One hundred years ago Nellie Barnes wanted her voice to be heard. So, she took her place, banner in hand, and joined other suffragettes along the gates of the White House on Nov. 10, 1917. While she was passionate about the cause, she was discouraged by the methods used to get the point across. The National Woman’s Party, of which Barnes was the state membership chairman, was the radical arm of the suffrage movement.
My Illinois-bred co-worker Joe Tamborello was beside himself when he found out that some Hoosiers refer to green peppers as mangoes. The look on his face was that akin to finding out Santa wasnâ€™t real.ÂEven as far back as the early 1900s, Hoosiers were flummoxed by the mango/green pepper duality. A 1903 Indianapolis Star article which explains quite nicely that Hoosiers arenâ€™t total rubes. Mangoes-what are they?
The name Hilton Crouch appeared numerous times in the local newspapers in the 1920s and '30s. If anyone was keeping track of his life, they would have seen a life of typical boyhood achievements spiral into a life of crime. As a youth, Crouch was a member of the Indianapolis News Newsboys’ band, the Hoosier-Scout Radio Club and later a member of a local amateur baseball club.
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".
