It was a moving scene as a group of suffering veterans experienced equine therapy for the first time. A chance meeting in the woods inspired the encounter. MIDDLETOWN — Kris Quinn ambled over to the horse, named Davis, not sure what to expect. He reached out gently, stroking Davis’ forehead. They stood face-to-face for a few minutes. The rustle of a light summer breeze was the only sound between them. Then Davis raised his head and rubbed his muzzle on Quinn’s cheek.
Bridgewater native Casey Murphy is a world-class goalkeeper for the Scarlet Knights' women's soccer team. The loud, repetitive thumping pierced a quiet afternoon at Bridgewater-Raritan High School. Girls soccer coach Chris Gerber walked from his office to the gym to check it out. “I looked in and it was just Casey, kicking a ball against the wall,” Gerber said. It was Casey Murphy, already two years into her career as Rutgers University’s standout goalkeeper, honing her craft at her old school.
Justin and Margaret Mussel returned from vacation with a remarkable souvenir. Ever lose something valuable in a couch cushion, only to find it later? Well, Brick couple Justin and Margaret Mussel know the feeling. Except the something they lost was a diamond engagement ring. And they lost it in Italy. And it was missing for nine years. And they found it two weeks ago, not in a couch cushion, but wedged into a crack on an Italian sidewalk. Can’t believe it? Keep reading. It’s quite a story.
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".
