A Bay Area sailor will set sail in October in an attempt to become the first person to sail around the Americas and Antarctica solo — all under a year. The trip will take Randall Reeves away from his wife and their East Bay home for the better part of a year - and into some of the world’s most notoriously storm oceans. “I overdid it one night and asked my wife ‘hey what do you think about this?’ Reeves said on the docks of Point Richmond where his 42 foot sailboat Moli is moored.
In the attic of a former Army barrack in San Francisco’s Presidio, is a set of murals Ian Gerber had heard about his whole life. As he stepped into the room for the first time last week and came face to face with the colorful scenes of military life he could feel the goosebumps. His late father Perron Gerber was one of the artists who painted them more than 60 years ago.
It’s almost as if Jeff Paganini was born and raised on the back of a fire engine. At the age of 58 he’s spent more than 40 of them putting out fires and saving lives with the Sonoma Fire Department. So now that he’s retiring from the profession he’s known since he was 17 years old, firefighters around the Bay Area are paying tribute to a fireman’s fireman who left his mark on generations of firefighters.
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".
