For so many years, it seemed impossible that Ryan Vogelsong would ever see this moment: stepping onto the mound Saturday night to pitch for the San Francisco Giants in the World Series. Fourteen years, 15 teams and three continents, from the majors back down to the minors and far abroad, made it hard to believe he had what it took. He made stops in San Jose and Shreveport, Altoona and Allentown, Nashville and Nishinomiya, Osaka and Salt Lake City.
MORGAN HILL — In a confession to police, Marcy Keelin said she was “so sorry” for abandoning her 10-year-old daughter with $150 worth of stolen groceries at a Safeway in a case that branded her as a horrible mother. But “I was just so scared,” the Morgan Hill mom told police after they tracked her down more than a week later at a Nevada motel room.
WOODSIDE — The treasured Filoli estate with its renowned gardens and grand 20th century mansion is the picture of Old World grandeur, gentility and grace, serenity and calm. But a bitter controversy at the popular tourist destination featured in the 1980s prime-time soap opera “Dynasty” has become so ugly that some of the 1,300 longtime volunteers are quitting and even removing the estate from their wills.
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".
