Soloman Howard debuted at the San Francisco Opera in Turandot not long ago. But the bass, snazzily dressed in a gray suit and a black hat with guitars on his socks, made time to come to San Quentin State Prison to be a part of the first recital of its kind there. A couple years ago, Howard performed at Attica Prison in New York, and he loved the experience. “I really appreciated the audience,” he says.
Pat Thomas read Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book” at age 10, after his 20-year-old brother brought it home. Thomas appreciated Hoffman’s humor, but years later wondered why he never heard much about Jerry Rubin, Hoffman’s co-founder of the Youth International Party, whose members called Yippees.
Countdown to Pearl Harbor Even though it’s been 75 years, there is still more to be learned about the attack on Pearl Harbor, at least for me.In this Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Twomey takes readers through the thoughts and actions of the Japanese government and military and their American counterparts in the 12 days before the attack.It comes back to “what did they know and when did they know it?”The actions, of in some cases, lack thereof, made a great deal of difference on what...
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".
