Six couples get married during out-of-sight eclipse ceremony. (FOX Carolina/ August 21, 2017)Drivers parked RVs and people pitched tents and fits over the eclipse. "I was just like 'that sounds pretty cool'," Josh Skiarski said. Skiarski is about to say "I do." "She just makes every day wonderful," he said. "Leona's going to be the flower girl." Leona is the couple's dog they've had for six years. Skiarski and his fiance are one of six couples who will get married during a total solar eclipse ceremony.
The total solar eclipse is Monday, August 21 and doctors want eclipse watchers to be prepared. They say it only takes about 30 to 60 seconds to damage eyes if watchers look at the sun during an eclipse, and initially, those people may not know anything is wrong. When Mary DeMarco and her 18-month-old daughter Molly hit the playground, she makes sure her daughter is protected from the sun. She also wants to protect her from the eclipse.
Jill Spencer walks and watches the beauty at Green Pond several days a week. The route she takes at the park in Anderson County will soon be a viewing site for the total solar eclipse. "When I learned they were going to do an eclipse event out here I thought this was the perfect place," Spencer said. "The view is amazing." Like the beauty of the area and the park, she and others want the event to be a perfect sight.
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".
