The late, great New England poet Robert Frost begins his famous poem “Mending Wall” with a line, “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,” and then alludes to its builder as “an old-stone savage.” The poem pokes fun of the cliché “good fences make good neighbors.”Poets and artists have long been avatars of artistic justice and creators of thought-provoking works, challenging us to re-examine a controversial issue without the rose-colored glasses of optimism.
They’re called the Bronx Bombers but they’re pretty good at brawlin’, too. In fact, the Yankees have had some classic throwdowns in their history, including on Thursday in Detroit. Here’s a list of some of the most notable Yankee fights in history, most of which came against a certain rival:Lou Piniella took a wide turn around third on a single by Otto Velez with two outs in the bottom of the sixth and the Yankees leading the Red Sox 1-0 at the Stadium.
The Subway Series was the perfect escape for Mets broadcaster Howie Rose, who like so many Americans was both saddened and emotionally drained by the recent white supremacist/neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Va., as well as other race-related issues that have sprouted up across the country in recent months.
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".
