Get ready for high drama and lots of action. That’s what the highly anticipated “Grey’s Anatomy” spin-off TV series “Station 19” projected when it was introduced during a “Grey’s Anatomy-Station 19” crossover episode March 1 on ABC. The firehouse drama Station 19 officially launches with a two-hour premiere Thursday, March 22, but the stage is already set for the passion and action that will fuel the series.
Hey, how did we get into the middle of March so fast? Wasn’t it just autumn a couple of weeks ago? And now it’s daylight saving time again? Unbelievable. It’s as if the fast forward button on my life was pushed in and got stuck. All through January and even February I keep thinking that it’s only the beginning of the year, relax, we’ve only just started. Then suddenly, before I know what hit me, March pops up and WHAM…I can’t kid myself anymore. We are deeply into 2018 and there’s no turning back!
I’m not sure if I’ve ever told you before, but it irritates me to hear people use the term “guys” for both male and female. This is something that has especially gained in popularity over the past 25 or 30 years or so. I know it’s a stupid little thing that shouldn’t annoy me. I know I should just shake it off and, as the kids say, just go with it. I know it isn’t a major deal in the big picture of life. I know I’m probably making too much out of this. Still…it irritates me.
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".
