From a 42-year career as a Navy Seabee, to raising a family, to volunteering at Plymouth Notch State Park, Super Senior Jim Hasson's life has been one adventure after another. Jim Hasson lives for the past. For him, it never gets old. "The village is basically the same as when he was here," Hasson said, speaking of Plymouth Notch, President Calvin Coolidge's childhood home. "He was my kind of folks." In the spring, this village frozen in time, will be open again to the public.
Dick Chase found his passion -- perhaps even a calling -- later in life. "It's the greatest job I've ever had in my life," he saidHis job is volunteering at the The Water Tower Farm - home of Rhythm of The Rein, a therapeutic riding program for people who have physical, emotional, or social challenges. People like Kathryne Silbermann, who has had multiply back surgeries. "I'm feeling a hundred percent better than I did," Silbermann said. She used to need a walker all the time -- no more.
Time is something Joe DeGray doesn't like to waste. But it's after Christmas and Joe's Barbershop has empty chairs. On any other day he'd be clipping away. DeGray has been cutting hair for 60 years. The 84-year-old sold the business a while ago, but he still works mornings. Shelley Bryant owns the place. "Oh, he's the heart and soul of this barbershop," Bryant said. "I just like to be with people, you know? And I think being active keeps you a little sharper, a little healthier," DeGray said.
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".
