A broken jaw. A broken foot. Back problems. These are all injuries 32-year-old Wesley Silcox has suffered during more than 15 years as a professional bull rider, one of the most dangerous sports in the world. “If you’re going to ride bulls you’re going to get hurt,” he said by phone, adding that each time he suffers from an injury he goes to physical therapy.
It’s not every day that a small band from northwest Ohio gets the chance to perform before 80,000 enthusiastic music lovers, but that’s precisely the opportunity awaiting Waterville indie/folk trio Oliver Hazard. Earlier this week, the band was announced as part of the 2018 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn. It took a while for the news to register, says guitarist and vocalist Mike Belazis. “We weren't even excited in a way because we almost didn't believe it,” Belazis says.
In the 1930s and ’40s, comic books were largely the province of youngsters who plopped down their dimes at the corner drugstore for the latest issue of Superman or Batman. Nearly a century after publication of those first mass-market treasures, new issues continue to be released each week — comics that now cover a host of genres. Yet one thing has changed over the decades: Comics books aren’t just for kids anymore. Maybe not even primarily.
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".
