I’m a late baby boomer. I grew up in the late 1960s watching “Batman,” “F-Troop,” “Star Trek,” “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” (remember that one? ), “Get Smart,” “The Beverly Hillbillies” and many others. This new invention, television, made for a very nifty babysitter when mom was exasperated with us. One of those classics was “The Addams Family.” Sight unseen, they were a normal suburban couple with two kids, a brother and a very large butler.
Not exactly at the place I thought, but I can’t be picky. On Sunday, I saw my first National Football League game when the Los Angeles Rams took on the Washington Redskins. The game had its thrills and chills, however not as exciting as a USC overtime win at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Unfortunately, the game did not end in a win for the home team. The Rams lost 27-20. I learned a lot during the three-plus hours sitting in the Coliseum.
“One stop and we’ll win.”That’s what Santa Clarita Christian football coach Chazz Anderson told his team during a timeout Saturday night against Jordan of Long Beach. Backed up on their own 6-yard-line and down 21-20 in the fourth quarter, the Cardinals needed a stop on fourth down to keep Jordan from the end zone. Anderson was right, sort of.
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".
