Monday’s eclipse is just the latest two-step in the eternal dance of the celestial bodies. As the outer planets of our solar system do a lightyears-wide hora, the moon will jealously cut in on the Earth and the sun’s long-running tango on Aug. 21. You’ll have to be in the path of the totality — which cuts only as close as Wyoming to Coloradoans — to get the full effect of the eclipse.
Well before pro cyclist Manuel Senni claimed a victory in the first Colorado Classic on Sunday, some attendees of the race’s surrounding festival had already gone through a gauntlet of their own. The entrance of Velorama Colorado, which spanned seven blocks along Walnut Street in RiNo from Aug. 11 to 13, was not clearly marked, leaving some to wander the length of its perimeter. Then, attendees were held up by ticket takers at the gate, hindered by slow-working or non-functioning ticket scanners.
The guy playing guitar at the party has played a couple of gigs in Colorado before — the Bluebird Theater in 2012 and Red Rocks in 2015 — but none this big. He’s standing alone on stage at the 18,000-capacity Pepsi Center in Denver, surrounded by blue-jeaned couples, thousands of teenagers and their parents, because this party — unlike the ones in his songs — isn’t exclusively about hooking up or getting drunk.
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".
