By Elena KimballCar chases capture LA’s attention, but Alaska has boat races. Specifically, the Yukon 800 – the longest and most challenging speedboat race in the world. Things got real crazy at this year when a contestant unexpectedly fell out of their boat just shy of the finish line! A woman standing on land totally lost her chill when it happened and offered the best help she could by shouting at him to “Come down later for moose soup!” Multiple times. You gotta hear it to believe it.
Every generation has a few musicians that history remembers as the influencers and the voices of their generation. Lorde earned that distinction when Time Magazine put her on their 2013 list of the most influential teenagers in the world right after she released her debut album ‘Pure Heroine.’Since then, she’s earned two GRAMMYs and performed at every Lollapalooza on the planet. She made her Coachella debut in 2014 and was a surprise guest during Disclosure’s set last year.
Lady Gaga has been breaking the mold and setting records long before becoming a pop music icon. Back when she was known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, she became the youngest person admitted into NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. In a true display of her independent spirit and belief in herself and her art, she dropped out of the prestigious university and became Lady Gaga while performing in avant garde clubs on New York’s Lower East Side.
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".
