10 reasons Willie Nelson is one of the best people aliveWhenever the media talks about Willie Nelson, it’s usually to make a pot joke. That’s really unfortunate, because the country music legend is about much more than his views on marijuana. Here are 10 reasons we absolutely adore the lovable musician — and none of them involve the green stuff. Is there anyone who loves Texas more than Willie? Probably not, and there are a lot of people who really love Texas.
Y’all, I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention to the news on your Facebook feed, but there’s a not-so-silent war being waged right now. No, I’m not talking about some battle in a far-off land. Nor am I talking about politics. No, I’m talking about the ways that several media companies are ruining our favorite Southern comfort food: Mac and cheese. A few years ago, the biggest argument you could probably get in about mac was if you prefer it baked or cooked on the stovetop.
10 things you should know if you’re dating a Southern womanMost of us who have lived down South know that the women here are special: strong, sassy, smart and full of mystery. But for y’all who have never dated a Southern woman, here’s what you should know:There’s no use in being sassy with us — we’re going to out-sass you. Promise. Don’t even try. If we notice you don’t say “sir” and “ma’am” to people we meet, we’re probably going to walk out the door. And if you don’t tip well at restaurants?
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".
