Jazz officially turns 100 this year -- an anniversary that comes with an asterisk. The genre emerged in New Orleans at the turn of the century out of the primordial soup of African, European and Caribbean music. But the first commercial recording properly labeled “jazz” was cut in New York in 1917 by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, a group of white entertainers from the Crescent City who had appropriated the local sounds. By 1959, jazz had reached maturity.
At the time he was 26 years old, with jet-black hair, a receding hairline, and a dark stubbly beard on his round cheeks. In Damascus, where he lived before the civil war, he had worked as a self-taught computer technician, the neighborhood IT guy who could help with a system crash. In the summer, he used to rent a car with his friends and younger brother, Abd, and make the four-hour drive to the coastal province of Latakia to lounge on the beaches and swim in the blue Mediterranean waters.
In Silicon Valley, love's many splendors often take the form of, well, many lovers. For certain millennials in tech-as well as, rumor has it, a few middle-aged CEOs-polyamory holds especial appeal. Perhaps that's because making it work is as much an engineering challenge as an emotional one, requiring partners to navigate a complex web of negotiated arrangements.
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".
