The law courted Adrienne Nelson at a young age. At the top of her class in 1985 in Gurdon, Arkansas, Nelson was set to be her high school’s first black valedictorian. Instead, the school decided to give the honor to the student with the next highest GPA—who was white. Nelson’s mother sued the school district, students of color threatened a walkout, and a historic valedictorian walked the stage. Nelson went to college and eventually set her sights on law school.
A huge fast-fashion chain is accused of knocking off an independent designer, and this time the alleged victim is one of our own. Last week, a customer notified Wildfang owner Emma Mcilroy that a nearly identical copy of her company'sÂ â€œWild Feministâ€? shirt was for sale on Forever 21â€™s website. A coincidence? Wildfangâ€™s feminist tees are no small thing. An Instagram search turns up miles of photos ofÂ Wildfangers proudly boasting the shirt, with many shots tagging the company.
An Old Portland rite of passage as important as those first moments gazing upon the 24-Hour Church of Elvis, or carting an ornate tinfoil dragon full of leftovers home from Montage at 3 a.m.—such is entering the corner doors of West Burnside adult store Spartacus, a wonderland of color, vinyl, and anything goes. When the store opened in 1987, the street wasn’t exactly chic.
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".
