Those of you who recall the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, and the turbulent spectacle that followed, probably still can’t believe it happened. Those who don’t likely never will. It was a story of an heiress, a doe-eyed wisp of a young woman abducted from her Berkeley apartment by extremists.
“Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around, he leaves an awful hole.”Clarence the Angel in “It’s a Wonderful Life”So what does an awful hole leave when it is no longer around? That was the question in Moraga on Thursday as the town bade a formal farewell to Sinky the Sinkhole, which dominated the intersection of Rheem Boulevard and Center Street for 20 months. The hole, which appeared out of nowhere during El Niño rains on March 13, 2016, grew 15 feet deep.
Susannah Jones’ 10-year-old son had already gone down the Emerald Plunge, a brand-new slide in Dublin’s brand-new water park, The Wave. He raced back up the 48-foot-high tower. This time he wanted an audience. “He came to us and said ‘Watch me,'” recalled Jones, who was at the opening day of The Wave, May 27, with her son, daughter and husband. Her son’s second ride on the slide turned into a nightmare before her eyes.
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".
