On a frigid winter morning, a line of people waiting for a warm meal wrapped along a wall inside the Martin Luther King Kitchen for the Poor. Ernie Hardy was first in line. Undeterred by the snow and winter cold, Mr. Hardy pedaled his bicycle here Monday, like he does most days. “I come through here all the time,” he said. “The food is good.”Doors opened at 8 a.m. weekdays for employees and volunteers to prepare for the lunch service. At noon, a group prayer is recited, then lunch is served.
Doug Keetion arrives just before 9 a.m. every day without fail, flips on the LED lights, surveys his studio salon, and beams with pride. Soon, the shop will teem with patrons and Mr. Keetion’s 19 employees. Hair stylists, nail technicians, a barber, massage therapist, and a boutique are all under one roof. It’s a one-stop shop for beauty. As the owner of Studio 32Nine Salon and Boutique — on Flaire Drive near Dorr Street and Reynolds Road — Mr. Keetion is living his American dream.
Pat Lewis steadied herself on a ladder with her left hand as she placed a dove ornament on a Christmas tree. Mrs. Lewis, 75, had to climb up and down the ladder several times to be certain she decorated every inch of the 9-foot tree. Octogenarians, some sitting in wheelchairs, gathered on the periphery admiring the finished product at the Kingston Residence of Sylvania where Ms. Lewis single-handedly decorated six Christmas trees.
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".
