Like my buddy Ellen, I don’t care for some of what’s on television today.My favorite shows involve food and history, and Andrew Zimmern’s “Bizarre Foods” combines both. He has followed the paths of Mark Twain, Lewis and Clark and Daniel Boone and eats the same type of food they ate.Recently, his culinary revisiting of Paul Revere’s ride took him to Boston and Lexington, Mass.
Now and then I see a T-shirt I would like to have. That doesn’t mean I covet it. I don’t want that particular T-shirt, which would deprive the owner of its use. I want one like it.A T-shirt in a shop at Gettysburg that appealed to me showed a troop of Confederate cavalry, charging with sabers drawn, and the caption “Providing Homeland Security Since 1861.”At least four members on the Heironimus side of the Jackson side of my family were in the Confederate cavalry.
I have read in the Cumberland paper that the last-ever graduating class of the Sedgwick Street version of Allegany High School has just begun classes.The school has been in horrible physical condition for some time — which if you read the Cumberland paper you already knew.I am reminded of the time more than 30 years ago when we in these parts were collectively tied in the proverbial knots by the question of whether to renovate Allegany or tear it down and build a new school.
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".
