Leadership dramas. Controversies big and small that smoldered for months or burned brightly and vanished in a flash. Failing colleges. And the game of bingo. Those are just a few of the themes that The Chronicle’s individual subscribers read about the most in 2017. Your top reads covered breaking news (hello, tax reform), provocative essays (do the humanities survive on exploitation? ), and the just-plain bizarre (farewell, Yale Yelp dean). Want to catch up on those great stories and others?
Paul Tudor Jones II, and his wife, Sonia, have given nearly $50 million to the U. of Virginia, his alma mater. Paul Tudor Jones II, the billionaire hedge-fund manager and big-time University of Virginia donor, privately expressed his loyalty to Harvey Weinstein after the film producer’s long history of sexual harassment came to light, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.
Football fans gathered in Knoxville, Tenn., on Sunday to protest the U. of Tennessee’s plan to hire Ohio State U.’s defensive coordinator, Greg Schiano, as its new head coach. Amid such protests, the university reversed its plan. The University of Tennessee at Knoxville’s decision this week to scrap the hiring of Greg Schiano as its next head football coach appears to mark a rare capitulation to public outrage and illustrates the long tail of a sexual-abuse scandal that dates back six years.
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".
