It’s easy to see why so many people have laid claim to the island of Sardina over the centuries. The second-largest island in the sparkling Mediterranean after Sicily, it is 8,300 square miles of beautiful, charming beaches, cliffs, mountains and caves. And you share it with only one million inhabitants! Sardinia also is home to some interesting rarities: archeological ruins called nuraghes, albino donkeys, coral-rich caves and a renowned sheep’s milk pecorino cheese industry.
After a recent visit to the MUNY offices, I realized how amazing it would have been to witness firsthand all of the comings and goings there over the last 100 years. Imagine getting up-close and personal with the likes of W.C. Fields, John Travolta and Cher. Or meeting Gene Kelly, Cary Grant and Red Skelton. How about watching A-list athletes like Joe Namath and Ozzie Smith sing and dance on stage? And who knew that Betty Grable was one of the first Muny Kids?
We probably all know something about Grand Center Arts District (previously called Grand Center). We know Powell Hall is there, and Fox Theatre—but what else? A recent tour of the area revealed an amazing past, present and future just a few miles from home. Did you know that The Sheldon Concert Hall was originally built as The Ethical Society? Or that Jazz St. Louis was once a Pope’s Cafeteria? And Kranzberg Arts Center was a Woolworth’s!
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".
