For 28-year-old Oksana Masters, PyeongChang will be her fourth Paralympics. NBD, right!? Born in the Ukraine and raised in both Buffalo, New York, and Louisville, Kentucky after being adopted at 8, Masters first became involved with competitive sports at age 11 and has since skyrocketed as one of Team USA's most promising Paralympic athletes. Oh and also she's competed in multiple sports. (You might say she has... mastered them all, even?!)
45-year-old alpine skiier Danelle Umstead doesn't let her blindness stop her from plummeting down mountains at 70+ miles per hour — an experience she told Team USA makes her feel "superhuman." Danelle has been skiing since 2000 — she credits the sport with helping her out of a deep depression she'd fallen into after losing her sight, and then her mother to colon cancer in 1999 — and shows no signs of slowing down.
33-year-old alpine skier Julia Mancuso is ready to finish out her Olympic career with a medal for Team USA. Mancuso started skiing when she was just 15, and over the span of nearly twenty years has become one of the most accomplished skiers out there. With an unmatched confidence and sense of adventure, she takes names at just about every competition she attends.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
