You have to wonder if there were few friends for young Donald J. Trump in Queens, New York, when he began his growing-up 71 years ago. For it is our friends who take us to “finishing school,” who show us, when we act up, when we “cross the line,” that we can’t do that and expect no consequences in the form of a bloody nose or some scuffed chinos. It is one of the experiences that sort of rounds off a person.
Some of the stands looked like miniature Starbucks shops, with cash boxes and a variety of treats and a Mom or Dad standing by with refills on juice, soft drinks and sometimes even coffee. Yes, competition even finds its way into the summertime lemonade stand business. But what made this past weekend different was that almost all the stands, and there were lots of them in Raleigh and Cary, some only a block or so apart, were donating their proceeds to the victims of Hurricane Harvey’s flooding.
Yes, that again. In the latest debate over the future – or the lack of one – for Silent Sam, the monument to the UNC Chapel Hill students who fought for the Confederacy, the most compelling argument for bringing the statue down has come from the words of Julian Carr, a businessman who was a Confederate veteran himself and who spoke at the dedication of the statue in 1913.
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".
