DENVER, North Carolina - A pregnant mother and her husband wanted to reveal the gender of their unborn child in a unique way - and "boy," did they ever! "We didn't know the gender either, but we had an envelope from the doctor we gave to a friend and he filled the baseball with the pink or blue powder," Laura Garner said. That novelty baseball was supposed to explode into either pink powder for a girl, or blue for a boy when hit by a bat.
CARSON CITY, Nevada - OJ Simpson's fate lies in the hands of members of the Nevada Board of Parole. Members will meet Thursday to discuss whether Simpson should be released from prison October 1st. If Simpson's parole is granted, that means he will have served his minimum sentence at Lovelock Correctional Center. Simpson was sentenced to a minimum of nine years to a maximum of 33 years for his role in a sports memorabilia robbery at a Las Vegas hotel in 2008.
LAND O' LAKES, Florida - Residents of a Florida neighborhood evacuated their homes as the ground opened up beneath them, ripping two houses apart as they tumbled into a massive pool of water. The ground began giving way around 7:30 a.m. when a homeowner noticed their boat was falling into a hole the size of a swimming pool. Within just a few minutes, that hole grew to 200 feet wide, swallowing both homes.
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".
