In an artistic display aimed at drawing visitors into San Francisco’s sprawling Haas-Lilienthal Victorian House Museum — San Francisco’s only Victorian home open for tours — the operators have commissioned an artist to display the family’s memories — on the outside. In a downstairs window, artist Ben Wood created a light projection of family photos and home movies dating back to the the family’s earliest days in the house, which was built in 1886.
Long past the days when they might’ve filed in to lunch with military precision, the three elderly men arrived by wheelchairs and a walker — pushing gingerly into their routine corner of the Sunrise Villa senior home lunchroom in San Jose. For these three veterans of World War II, the daily call to lunch is a time to slip back more than seven decades — into memories of when their young lives were uprooted and they were dispatched far from home to fight against strangers.
Chances are if you’ve been to a Bay Area rock concert in the last 40 years, you’ve encountered Jay Blakesberg at work on stage. He was the guy behind the camera. And after decades focusing his lens on some of the biggest names in music, the prolific rock 'n' roll photographer is the star of his own career retrospective titled Dark + Light, opening in San Francisco’s Harvey Milk Photo Center this Thursday.
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".
