Music lovers agree that Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig von Beethoven constitute the holy trinity of classical composers, although the 1-2-3 order might vary.Few, though, would deny that Mozart’s life story generates the greatest interest: child prodigy, prolific creator, young corpse.And it’s one that John Suchet, a former British television journalist and the host of Classic FM’s flagship morning program in England, tells with verve in his informative and...
Whether the issue is statutory (voting laws) or statuary (Confederate monuments), the Civil War continues to reverberate in the nation, its politics and its literature.But seldom does it find such eloquent expression as it does in Daren Wang’s debut, “The Hidden Light of Northern Fires,” a historical novel born of an experience in the author’s childhood.The story begins in 1861 in the only locality north of the Mason-Dixon Line to secede from the Union: Town Line, N.Y., just east of Buffalo....
If you remember your high school years as an unending progression of glory days and delightful nights, you’re either seriously delusional or exceptionally lucky.What’s more likely is a blend of triumphs and trials, mixed with a heaping helping of the mundane.Sue Grafton has a predictably darker vision in “Y is for Yesterday,” the 25th and penultimate installment in her hugely popular and critically acclaimed alphabet series featuring California private detective Kinsey Millhone.As the story...
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
