I wasn’t sure what to do when I realized the guy at the party wasn’t joking around. As he got into the details of the conspiracy theory explaining how Lady Gaga killed Lou Reed, I stopped laughing and started backing away, nodding as I went. You can bump into conspiracy theorists pretty much anywhere, except at vaccination clinics. And I’ve yet to meet one who wears a tinfoil hat out in public. They appear to be ordinary folks who believe extraordinary things.
Boasting â€œThe Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food,â€? at least one honey sommelier and plenty of talented young chefs creating delights with ingredients from what is playfully nicknamed the â€œSonoran supermarket,â€? Tucson is turning into a true hot spot for food-focused travellers.
WINNIPEG—“This is going to get very freaky,” says Frank Albo, grinning, as he walks backwards into the foyer of the Manitoba Legislature. We follow him past the security desk to a massive staircase flanked by a pair of giant bronze bison, an emblem for the prairie province. Except these bison towering over us represent protective, horned beasts guarding the entrance to a temple. “The building is an encyclopedia of sacred knowledge,” says Albo in his blue ball cap, hoodie and white sneakers.
After walking by me + my fav T from @ChillandServeTs, guy on funkalicious 4th Ave in Tucson googles how many issues Vogue’s published. 2 million. ‘Man that girl has problems’ he thinks (+ tells me when he sees me again) https://t.co/U5M66C8D2I
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".
