I'm a wanna-be boater. I want to be boating, but I don't actually own a boat. Luckily, I have a few friends and family members who own boats and graciously allow me aboard their vessels. After this week's thunderstorms, when the sun comes out on days like today the desire to be out on the water is especially strong.
A young Vernon mother battling an aggressive form of breast cancer is proof that this is not just a seniors’ disease. At just 37-years-old, with no family history of cancer, Kyli Steck is fighting the disease that even doctors didn’t believe was likely for the healthy, physically fit young woman. But in fact, it all started five years ago when Steck found a lump in her right breast.
The Vernon Morning Star is once again shining. The community newspaper took home second place for its photography from the 2017 Ma Murray Awards in Richmond last weekend. Lisa VanderVelde, who has been the newspaper’s photographer for 15 years, earned the Spot News Photo Award. The award-winning photo is of a convict being escorted from the Vernon Courthouse following his trial. “This is another example of a photograph made under less than ideal circumstances,” reads the judges comments.
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".
