Diane Ogden’s 30-year stint with the U.S. Post Office ended the same way her appearance on the popular CBS reality show “Survivor” did — sooner than she expected.Ogden, who celebrated her 55th birthday Sunday, planned to retire as a mail carrier at the end of the month. But she left her southeast Lincoln route a few weeks ago after tripping over a baby gate while carrying her sleeping granddaughter.The baby was fine. Ogden … not so much. She broke her foot.
Knute Rockne didn't like his players smoking cigarettes.At least that's what little Ed Tollefsen took from the letter he received from the legendary Notre Dame football coach.Tollefsen's teacher at Whittier Elementary School in Kearney had assigned students to mail a question to someone famous, to see if they would get a response. The 10-year-old queried Rockne about cigarettes. The reply came typewritten and single-spaced on Notre Dame letterhead bearing Rockne's image.
So, was watching herself on TV or keeping a secret for six months that she had won “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition” more difficult for 14-year-old McKaylee True?“I think that it was harder to watch actually,” the Lincoln teenager said Wednesday morning, the day after the rest of the world learned she won the Lifetime reality dance competition she taped last spring.
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".
