“What has the universe got to do with it? You’re here in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is not expanding.” - Annie HallFirst, the motifs: stars, crushes, The Replacements, alternate dimensions, Interstate 35, addiction, death. Look here: we’re nine and ten, respectively. The narrator’s voice in the near-dark is like God; the planetarium projector a black insect, B-movie-huge, humming. We watch as the sun becomes a red giant and gobbles the planets, one by one. It’s a massacre; cosmic murder.
KUTX turns five this year, and we’re celebrating all year long (because we’re that guy) with special features on-air and online, fun events, and concerts – some of which we’re still cooking up, and some of which might become annual traditions. And all of this is, of course, in addition to the stuff we usually do, like KUTX Live at The Four Seasons, KUTX Live at The Paramount, our spring and fall concert series at Mueller, and all the features and music you find on KUTX every day.
I was so happy to read Leigh Anderson’s piece on 6 Words That Will End Picky Eating, which praised Ellyn Satter’s method for feeding children. But I was dismayed by the comments it generated on Facebook — from deeply skeptical to downright dismissive. A major point of contention: Satter’s suggestion to serve dessert with dinner. Because, surely, to do so would result in a kind of toddler apocalypse.
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".
