We honored the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on his birthday Monday. On April 4, it will be 50 years since his assassination. King’s words, actions and legacy resonate now as they did then in a city with its own troubled racial history. On Aug. 28, 1963, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom drew more than 250,000 demonstrators protesting inequalities faced by African-Americans.
With the announced closing of the Macy’s store at Fountain Place in the heart of Downtown this year, we take a look at some of the major department stores from Cincinnati’s past. The John Shillito Co. began as a dry-goods store in 1830. Shillito’s outgrew their building on Fourth Street, and in 1878 moved to a spacious emporium, “the dry goods palace of the world,” at Seventh and Race streets.
Everyone knows that Santa Claus is “making a list and checking it twice,” he’s “gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.” Those famous lines from “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town,” as much a part of Christmas as reindeer and mistletoe, were penned by lyricist Haven Gillespie.The story behind the song goes back to Gillespie’s childhood in Covington.James Haven Gillespie was born on Feb. 6, 1888. His family lived in the basement of a house on Third Street, near Washington Avenue.
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".
