The fastest way to the top was downhill. Kids from Norwich, a tiny town in Vermont, routinely zipped down the slopes into spots on the U.S. Winter Olympic team across the past three decades. The town of 3,000 sent its athletes to eight of the nine winter games from 1984-2014 — with two more qualifying for the Summer Olympics. That’s 11 Olympians and three Olympic medals for the New England town that boasts about its village green.
“Bow Knows” isn’t just a clever play on the title of the “Bo Knows” ad campaign starring pro athlete Bo Jackson that Nike ran in 1989; it’s also the title of the most recent episode of the hit ABC sitcom black-ish. The story found advertising executive Dre (Anthony Anderson, pictured top left) tasked with heading a campaign that brings awareness to “The Talk,” a real-life short film released by Procter & Gamble last year.
The best pillow I have growls. And the only footstool I've ever used has been known to drink from puddles. Yes, I live with dogs and the joy and coziness of this arrangement is brought to life in the delightful "My Pillow Keeps moving!" written by Laura Gehl and illustrated by Christopher Weyant (Penguin Young Readers, $17.99). The book, which publishes Jan. 16, follows a hapless man who lives alone. He buys a pillow at the pillow store but inadvertently buys a puppy, snuggled on top of the pillows.
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".
