NEW YORK - One father and son from The Woodlands happened to be on college visits in New York so they decided to head out to the Bronx to catch game three of the American League Championship Series. "National media not giving us a lot of respect," said Mike Teall, who visited NYU and Columbia with his son Jake. "They're like, 'Yeah who are these Houston guys' so we're here to show them what we're all about."
A Houston couple in their 70s survived the Utah desert after wandering lost for days. The couple was found in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, a park as dangerous as it is beautiful. "There was no way back or forward," said Helena Byler on Friday at a Utah hospital. "There was nothing we knew in that moment, it was impossible." The couple was up against the impossible two weeks ago after their rental car stalled on a road.
Though she couldn't go to the clinching Game 4 against the Boston Red Sox in Boston, she was watching. Or at least trying. "I was here at work listening to the radio, trying to get out so I could go watch the game," Perez said. "By the 5th inning, I was like, 'I have to leave.' Then I got home, and I wanted to puke, because I said, 'They have to win. I don't want them playing Game 5.'" Perez has been a faithful fan since the 1980s. "It's my passion," she said. "I love baseball.
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".
