Brian Edwards, airport operations manager at Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Michigan, first began bringing his border collie Piper to work in late 2014. A little over a year later, Piper, whose job was to clear the airfield of birds, foxes, and groundhogs, became an internet sensation. Photos of Piper hard at work while looking like a total badass with his goggles flooded the internet and were seen and loved all over the world. Piper’s Instagram, @airportk9 amassed over 100,000 followers.
In 2009, NASA astronaut Leland Melvin arrived at NASA Johnson Space Center for his “photo day” before traveling to the International Space Station aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis as a member of STS-129. Astronauts are allowed to bring their human family members to their photo day, but Melvin had to sneak his four-legged family members, rescue dogs Jake and Scout, into the photo session. And it was totally worth it.
Phoenix Open has become a party mecca in America. With 200,000+ people attending the Saturday round, it’s more rock concert and less golf tourney. While enjoying the rowdy 16th hole from official 16th hole sponsor Oakley’s suite — complete with a glorious view — it dawned on me that I could offer future WM Open party-goers some sage advice that I learned from three days on the course. Amateur move: Small ballers line up to enter the 16th grandstand at 5am.
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".
