I’m a reporter that uses social listening to find emerging stories that resonate with an online audience. Topics I cover often include Arizona State University, teen issues, viral posts and breaking news.
I also am a coach and live-event host for the Arizona Storytellers Project.
As the newly crowned 56th Miss Indian Arizona, 20-year-old Mariah Jordan Sharpe is bringing the title back to where it started. Her grandfather's sister is Veronica Homer, who won the first Miss Indian Arizona title in 1961, according to Sharpe. Both women are Mohave members of the Colorado River Indian Tribes. Tribal headquarters are in Parker, a small town near Lake Havasu City. The first Miss Indian Arizona pageant was at the Arizona State Fair.
Calling all tattoo havers and wanters: This week has a Friday the 13th, and that means $13 tattoo deals. Tattoo parlors around the world celebrate the cursed day with cheap flash tattoos, usually featuring the number 13. Flash is a simple, pre-drawn tattoo design that is meant to be done quickly. Many parlors give flash tattoos for just $13 (usually plus a $7 tip, for luck), though some just give discounts on more detailed designs.
Before this summer, Phoenix's antifascist movement existed primarily in the far-left corners of social media and the rowdier pockets of civil-rights protests. Its adherents — mostly young, mostly masked and often carrying bats — seemed to appear at any politically charged demonstration, but often drawing little notice. An Aug. 22 Trump rally in downtown Phoenix changed that. The word "antifa" has now made its way to mainstream political discourse, both locally and nationally.
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".
