Katya Matsko is 15 years old and already knows what she wants to do with her life. The Sedro-Woolley High School freshman wants to work at NASA as a rocket scientist. She also knows she wants to attend Stanford University. “I just think Stanford is a great community,” Matsko told 770 KTTH’s Jason Rantz. In a perfect coalescing of Matsko’s interest, Stanford offers a summer program for high school students interested in math. She applied and got accepted, but then hit a snag.
“Love, Simon” is the first film produced by a major studio to focus entirely on the romance of a gay high school student. For some, that still isn’t progressive enough. The headline for Daniel D’Addario’s article in Time Magazine reads “‘Love, Simon’ is a groundbreaking gay movie. But do today’s teens actually need it?” Here’s an excerpt:Seattle’s own Nick Robinson stars in the film.
Legislators are pointing fingers after another session with no relief from expensive car tab fees. Legislature sued over how it changed police deadly force lawDemocrats say they had legislation ready to go, butRepublicans threatened a filibuster, which is why they weren’t able to send anything to the governor. “It’s ridiculous for them to claim that because it’s not even possible,” Harmsworth told 770 KTTH’s Jason Rantz. “We have a three-minute rule on the speeches on the floor.”It’s true.
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".
