On Wednesday, tennis star Serena Williams shared the first photo of her new baby girl and announced her name, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. There’s plenty right there to “awww” about. But diving deeper into the name is another sweet story. The baby is named after her father, Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit and a former Columbia resident. But growing up, Ohanian didn’t love the name that his daughter now shares.
“Bachelor in Paradise” may have caused quite the controversy this summer, but for Johns Hopkins University graduate Taylor Nolan, things turned out pretty well. Fellow contestant Derek Peth proposed to Nolan on the “Bachelor in Paradise” finale Monday night, and she said yes. Nolan, a mental health counselor who is also a Stevenson University alum, first competed for love on national TV on Nick Viall’s season of “The Bachelor,” on which she made waves for her confrontations with Corinne Olympios.
Yep, it’s that time of year again — BronyCon, which has become a summer tradition in Baltimore, returns to the Baltimore Convention Center this weekend. The celebration of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic,” will bring fans of the animated series — aka “Bronies” — from all over the world. And many will be in costume. So if you see some out-of-the norm fashion choices around the Inner Harbor, thank the bronies. (See some of the best cosplaying examples from past BronyCons in the gallery above.)
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".
