When Katy Sullivan was a baby, a doctor told her mother: “The world doesn’t need another athlete. But she will find plenty of other things to enjoy and be good at.”As Katy explains, she was born a bilateral above the knee amputee. She came into the world, in Alabama, missing the lower halves of both her legs. “I don’t think he was trying to be a jerk,” Katy generously shares about the doctor.
Some people might view a tiny one-room 12 x 12 foot house as a prison. But for painter Maud Lewis it was a joyful playground for endless vibrant color and possibility. From the 1930s to her death in 1970 she lived in Nova Scotia in a doll-sized cottage with her fish peddler husband Everett Lewis. Not only did she paint canvas after canvas, she also painted every possible surface from the stove to the cookie sheets with endless tableaus of butterflies, bluebirds and daffodils.
This past September Betty Buckley debuted her show Story Songs at Joe’s Pub in The Public Theater. The New York Times said her performance was “arguably the strongest of her career” and that her stellar voice “gave everything she sang the shape and depth of a personal confession.”For decades the Tony-winning actress and performer has thrived in theater, film and television.
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".
