Have you ever dropped in on a local business and thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Well, there’s a guy named Johnny Lee Johnson in Lafayette and his business, the Smoke n’ Section has folks lined up waiting to get in. Once they do, all of them ask themselves that same age-old question. The Smoke n' Section is a vintage 1972 Airstream that Johnny customized into an Art-Deco inspired Mobile Cigar Lounge for events and festivals.
The Instagram announcement was shared throughout the beer geek sites within minutes of its release. By that evening, two local newspapers had already published full length articles about it. Just as Louisiana Craft Brewers Week gets underway, 40 Arpent Brewery shut down and drained their fermenters with no plans to reopen the brewery.
A friend of mine, who just move to Texas a few weeks prior to Hurricane Harvey’s landfall posted a photo he took from a grocery store — the shelves were bare where the bottled water was, but the beer shelves were still full. He commented on the photo, “Texans don’t know how to stock up for a hurricane, in Louisiana the beer shelves would be empty, and the water fully stocked.”Louisianans do prepare a bit differently for approaching disasters than folks in the rest of the country.
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".
