Thanks to the wisdom of one of the Crew’s members’ grandparent, we, of the Crew, recently assisted in exposing a cell-phone stealing racket at a Mangochi bar. As usual, the Crew was having a nice time at one of the popular joints in the Lakeshore district. Courtesy of one Biblical John, whose name is spelt and pronounced in the vernacular, we were enjoying the breeze outside the pub, while chewing beef and fish snack this friend of ours had bought in their plentiful. “Koma Mangochi ndi dilu, shaaa!
Shame! Not the Lord please! You youngsters of today are not ashamed to hide under the veil of religion and use your choir practicing time for episodes that don’t come closer to God’s work,” exclaims Happison’s Uncle, irked that one of his nieces has brought shame to his house. He is lambasting his son, who we hear was some sort of custodian of the girl each time they went out for choir practice and other religious functions. “Where were you when your cousin was getting ‘balooned’?
The crew has, for some reason or another, converged somewhere in the Capital City. Some of the members are here on official duties while others have come for usual social thirst-quenching and adventure. We earlier resolved to stay in one locality for effective mobility and block adventures. One of the crew members, a new guy on the list, seems to have more lust in his body-closet that he decides to book himself in a lodge somewhere close to the popular social hub of Bwandilo, Area 47.
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".
