In January of 2012, I wrote about one man’s search for meaning in his life. He wanted to stop feeling self-pitty — for the loss of his job, his house foreclosure and bankruptcy. He wanted to break out of his daily routine, open his arms and give the world a big embrace of thanks — thanks for such things as the air we breathe, the love of family, friendships, good health, kids’ laughter, strangers’ smiles, sunshine, raindrops, fragrant flowers, all the perks of life we take for granted.
Linda Katz has long been an advocate of woman power, and Mel Katz is an executive of Manpower. So they are well prepared for their upcoming recognition as a power couple — Mr. and Mrs. San Diego 2017. Throughout their 40-year marriage, the Del Mar couple has worked quietly both behind the scenes and in challenging leadership positions to better the San Diego community and the lives of underserved San Diegans.
Marissa Jaret Winokur won the 2003 Tony Award for best actress for her role as the bubbly Tracy Turnblad in “Hairspray” on Broadway. But her best performance may have been even before the show debuted — keeping her cancer diagnosis a secret. It wasn’t until Winokur starred in the L.A. “Hairspray” production in 2004, shortly after its West Coast opening in San Diego, that she publicly came out of the cancer closet.
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".
