Journalists — they’re just like us! They bomb important interviews, have work husbands, and dread getting calls at work from their elderly mother’s assisted-living facility. This was the takeaway from the stories shared by Globe journalists Friday and Saturday nights at the Paramount Center, where the second edition of “Globe Live” brought storytelling from the page to the stage in front of 850-plus people.

Two degrees of Kevin Bacon were in Beverly on Saturday night as the actor and his older brother, the film and television score composer Michael Bacon, performed as the Bacon Brothers for a crowd of about 600 at The Cabot. The brothers, who have played music together since they were young, have released six albums since they officially became a band in the 1990s.
Robert Kraft was spotted ringside at the much-anticipated Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight Saturday night, and the Patriots owner made his way to Las Vegas with an, er, interesting pair of travel buddies: Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez. The former Yankee posted a photo on Twitter of the trio on a private jet, with the caption “Vegas bound . . . Kiss the ring.” J.Lo, who’s been dating A-Rod since the spring, sported one of Kraft’s Super Bowl rings in the shot.
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".
