The first time Rabbi Mendel Ceitlin saw an exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls, he was in high school. His youth, however, didn't keep the future rabbi from becoming captivated with the ancient manuscripts. Ceitlin, the son and grandson of rabbis, felt an almost magnetic pull to the documents. He was drawn to the exhibit when it came to Toronto, where he lived at the time.
When Esther Smith's doctor told her that she had been diagnosed with Parkinson's, she felt as if her life had become like a jigsaw puzzle. The pieces were dumped and jumbled in front of her. "I was scared," she said. "I was going to have to figure out how to put my life together and keep moving forward. I knew nothing about Parkinson's." Parkinson's is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement and is degenerative.
Erin Beech glanced at the hundreds of orange pumpkins that surrounded her. Some were the size of baseballs while others were massive and weighed more than 70 pounds. The pumpkins filled her thoughts with warm and tender memories of days gone by. "I used to bring my kids here every year," she said with a trace of nostalgia in her voice. "They are adults now, but I still come here every year to buy pumpkins. I have such good memories of this pumpkin patch. My kids always looked forward to coming.
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".
