Kim Clijsters and Andy Roddick will be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame next month. Do they deserve the honor? One of them definitely does. The other ... well, it depends on what you think the Hall of Fame should be all about. If it’s just about being famous, OK, let’s get Anna Kournikova in there.
"Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5-0! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0." So declared President Donald Trump Tuesday night, and he's right. Democrats viewed this week's special election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District as their last, best opportunity in 2017 to scare congressional Republicans, to prove that the GOP's majority will be in danger next year thanks to Trump's unpopularity.
When George Lucas' "American Graffiti" reached theaters in August 1973, the movie's chief plot device -- small-town teens looking for love and fun by cruising around downtown in their hotrods -- already felt like an innocent summertime diversion from a bygone era. The previous winter, former U.S. Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall had declared that America had reached "the end of a long love affair with the car."
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".
