Probably the first popular song I can remember was recorded in the late 1940s by an artist named Art Mooney:I’m looking over a four-leaf cloverThat I overlooked before. It was a simple song by today’s standards. No hidden meanings. Few moral or political allusions. No rock, heavy metal, reggae, rap or disco sounds. But you could understand the words.That was the tail end of the crooning era. Most of the artists had a soft, sweet sound, a mellow voice or a catchy lilt.
People killing people.The latest such major event, the gunning down of 17 students and adults at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., by a 19-year-old former student, seemingly has brought public outrage to a head — again. Why must this go on? They demand answers.Would that the answers were that simple. Fortunately, the picture might not be as stark as it is painted. Yes, there have been 18 school shootings this year — except how do we define school shootings?
Fifty-four years ago Melvin Simon & Associates had a vision for a novelty that was to become a trend: a completely enclosed shopping mall. Thus the Mounds Mall became the first in central Indiana.Shopping before that time still centered around each city’s downtown area, where people would have to find a place to park their cars, feed parking meters or pay an attendant, then brave the cold or the heat going from store to store in search of merchandise.
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".
