Key West is only four miles long and two miles wide, 90 miles from Cuba in John F. Kennedy's famous phrase, and has a population of about 25,000. For a little island at the end of the Florida Keys, it sure attracts a lot of literary attention. Much of that comes from Ernest Hemingway, the one-man travel industry who lived on Key West 1928-39, one of the most productive periods of his life. Tennessee Williams was there much longer, from the 1940s to his death in 1983.
To the editor — Recently, I had family from Oregon come to visit. They spent the day with us on Saturday, and we tried to find them a hotel room for the night. and what I found was very disappointing. Because of the all-star baseball game that was in town, all the rooms where taken. So Yakima and the leaders are wanting to bring more attractions to town, which is great with the soccer center and the downtown plaza. but I’m having a hard time understanding where they are going to stay.
A new poll from Education Post reveals that not only are rural schools unique in their geographic and community characteristics, but also in the views held by parents who send their kids to those schools. Seventy-three percent of rural parents polled believe that schools and teachers have the potential to overcome challenges of poverty and other social factors—a larger proportion than both urban and suburban parents.
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".
