Marnie: I have no idea, Buzz – where did you see it? Buzz: When we went to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for our anniversary last week, I told my wife she could pick the wine. I regretted it right away because she wanted chardonnay. But going down the list, I found one wine was “fruity” and another “mineral,” which seemed goofy. How can a wine be made from stones? Marnie: Oh, I see. Fruity and mineral aren’t terms for what a wine is made from.
We asked Gar Joseph, a former Daily News city editor, for his reflections on hearing that Sen. John McCain was diagnosed with the same type of brain cancer that Joseph is fighting himself:Hey, Sen. John M. McCain, you like “Death Cab for Cuties?” I think you do. Your pal Sen. Lindsey Graham says you “will never be afraid of … death.” I like it, too. You do the best you can with your length of time. My brain quit in 2015. Docs had to dig a bunch of stuff out.
WILLIAM Scott Vare was a vote-stealer and a boodler. It seemed unlikely that his bid for a U.S. Senate seat would win the endorsement of any of Philadelphia's five daily newspapers. So he started his own.
Here's another star. Former Mayor William J. Green III, son of Congressman Bill Green Jr., who was key in getting John F. Kennedy elected president in 1960. Young Green saw and learned plenty. I'd be happy to help him write a book. I guarantee a best seller. https://t.co/YKRO2Y0TrP
A couple of good pix yesterday at the 4th Street Deli, on Election Day. Here's one on a great writer (Buzz Bissinger, "Friday Night Lights" one I even edited for awhile) I've known for 30 years. Pretty good @StratOMatic player too. https://t.co/IzmjT4Oifc
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".
