Margaret Glaspy hit the road last year and pretty much went from zero to 60 in short order. After having little previous experience with touring nationally, Glaspy, armed with her debut album, "Emotions and Math," hit the tour circuit, where she learned a lot. The main thing she gleaned from the past year wasn't necessarily about music, however. "I've learned to talk less and listen more," she said.
Remember when chocolate was good for you? Those were the days. I'm kidding, of course, as the health benefits of chocolate were grossly exaggerated, and chocolate so actually isn't "good for you" in the way, say, spinach is. It has some benefits (antioxidants), and while raw cocoa is good for you, the added sugars and the way most chocolate we eat is processed negate those positive effects. But what about the so-called health benefits of beer. We've all read about them.
When people ask Henning Ohlenbusch what he does in his spare time, one of his first answers is "Go to my day job." While most people don't consider their workdays as "spare time," Ohlenbusch does. "My 'real' time is spent making music or working on some other creative project," he said. That's probably a good way to look at it, considering how many creative endeavors the singer-songwriter is involved in.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
