Patti Edwards downplays LaVell’s influence on BYU football. “The stadium will be gone in 25 or 30 years, but his influence on people will be generational.” The two are known for bringing out the best in others. As a mother, Patti helped her kids — but not too much. “I typed papers for my children, but I would only make corrections they requested. My son spelled ‘unit’ incorrectly as ‘younut’ throughout a paper, and I left the error. He got a poor grade, but learned a powerful lesson.
Orem’s Sue Bergin has always been an activist. In the 1980s, she marched against the MX missile. When she was a 30-year-old Relief Society president in an LDS singles ward, she told the bishop they were going to replace Homemaking with activities that fit their interests better. Now, she’s a retired chaplain and her life involves “solitude punctuated by pride parades.” With two gay brothers, she advocates for love and understanding of the LGBTQ within the LDS community and beyond.
After Elaine Dalton finished her 16 years serving on the LDS Church’s Young Women General Board and presidency — including five years as president — she knew she had to be careful with how she spent her time. “I wanted to avoid things that took me away from my kids and grandkids,” she says. Then Matt Holland called and asked her to consider being on UVU’s Board of Trustees.
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".
