What were you doing when you were 6? When I think of my 90s childhood, I think of Skip-Its, fort building, and endless games of checkers. And a few evenings zoned into Goldeneye. But kids today are growing up in an entirely new world, swapping moments of outdoor frolicking for indoor clicking. And if Facebook has it their way, even the simplest of conversations between kids and their friends or parents will become an all new opportunity to jump down the rabbit hole of technological distraction.
“To me, food is a bridge to understanding. I think here’s a lost art of coming together with our neighbors.”In 2015, during the sixth season of MasterChef, Amanda Saab was the first Muslim woman to appear in a hijab on an American primetime cooking show. Saab is a full-time social worker from the Detroit area and was new to the public spotlight.
At 10:30 on Sunday morning, hundreds of chairs filled to hear him speak. From afar, one would assume that the middle-aged gentleman mic’d and uplit in a soft blue glow, standing on the center stage, must be a tech guru. Who else would motivate so many Millennial entrepreneurs into a dark room on a Sunday morning? But no.
Today, with sadness, I cannot be on the streets marching with my friends and family. But I 'march' every day for equal human rights, the right to choose, the right to nutritious food, the right to a healthy planet. My energy is with all who are marching today! #RESISThttps://t.co/rDBwBAXmQI
Today, with sadness, I cannot be on the streets marching with my brothers, sisters, friends and family. But I march every day (metaphorically) for equal human rights, women's rights, food chain worker's rights. My thoughts and energy are with all who are marching today! #RESISThttps://t.co/dyiq725p29
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".
