Tastykake-eating Rhode Island Red, a customer favorite, went missing for two weeks. At first, the manager suspected fowl play at the Parksley Royal Farms convenience store. A surveillance camera caught enough of the early-morning theft on tape. "Usually by 6:30, I take him a Tastykake," said store manager Keith Justis. But on the morning of Friday, May 1, Justis was about 10 minutes late delivering the snack. It was 6:40 a.m., and Foghorn didn't appear.
Buckeye was glad to be back, said his owner. Of the ponies visiting Virginia's part of the Assateague Island National Seashore over the weekend, Buckeye had lived wild on Assateague the longest. Though he'd been rounded up and shipped to his new home in Lancaster, Ohio, by age 9 months, the bay gelding recognized his birthplace, Amy Wetzel said.
Magic is a diva. She likes peppermints, but don't put medication in her treats. Once, maybe twice, with enough mints. But then she turns up her nose and sulks a bit. Her owner, 14-year-old Sarah Courtney, might coddle Magic just a little. She fusses at her for not taking the antibiotics.
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".
