I’m a bear, I’m called Benny, and I’m slightly used Lemme tell youse a tale, ya won’t read in the news I tell it to people, on Christmas ya see It could happen to youse, ‘cause it happened to me A banker from Brooklyn whose first name was Sid Went and bought me at Macy’s, to give to his kid From the shelf, to box in a bag, to the trunk And then under the tree with a buncha’ wrapped junk Sid’s kid’s name was Stanley, and Stanley was spoiled And thoughtless, impatient; his slick hair was oiled...
At 76, Steve Doughty has done many things in his life: private eye, dredgerman, contractor and dairy owner (the last in concert with his late wife, Sharon). These days Doughty concentrates on another role — winery owner. Point Reyes Vineyard Inn and Winery is the first winery and tasting room to open in Marin since Prohibition, Doughty says. And indeed, he might be right. It is certainly the first to stay open.
“I’ll have a Manhattan,” the brunette with big dark eyes said. I tilted my head expectantly, waiting for more information. One beat. Two beats. It appeared as if none was forthcoming. “What kind of Manhattan would you like?”Those big dark eyes just stared at me. This was one of those moments in the service industry that can make or break an experience. • Did she know what kind of Manhattan she wanted? • Did she even know what those options are?
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".
