A woman's epic dance moves at a Houston Rockets game have sent her from the Jumbotron to Chance the Rapper's Twitter account to international media renown. Megan Bailey, a Purdue University alumna who works for Simon Property Group in Houston, engaged in a no-holds-barred dance battle against another woman at Thursday night's Rockets game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Bailey attended the game with her boyfriend, WTHR sports anchor Jason Spells.
A year ago, droves of people marched in Washington D.C. and around the world to speak up for women's rights and protest President Donald Trump's inauguration. On Saturday, supporters of progressive causes united once again for the Women's March on Washington — Indiana. Indianapolis' protest joined others all over the country in a mission to galavanize people to visit the polls. "Last year, it was really about the day and the actual event.
For more than a decade, First Friday — a monthly showcase of creative exhibits, bustle and yes, parking challenges — has reigned as Indianapolis' major social event for art. But some artists say First Friday has become too big, and lost its focus. Restaurants, live-music venues and retailers started adopting the brand to take advantage of the crowds. Fresh art still hangs on gallery walls, but sometimes becomes a backdrop for a party with free wine and beer.
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".
