WASHINGTON — Two friends, one in D.C. and the other in Mexico City, were trying to find a way to help right after an earthquake hit Mexico on Sept. 8 and another hit on Sept. 19. “I wish I could be there on the ground helping,” said Gabriel Espana. But he lives in D.C., where he leads a group of about 800 members of the D.C. Mexican and Mexican-American community. Luckily, his friend Javier Arreola lives in Mexico City.
WASHINGTON — Imagine streaming a live concert through your hearing aid. With smart technology hearing aids, that is now a possibility. Out of the 323 million people in living in the United States, 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. But hearing aids have come a long way in recent years.
WASHINGTON — The National Museum of African American History and Culture opened its door one year ago on Sept. 24. But for one Tuskegee Airmen veteran, the wait took half a century. “It’s about time! That was my feeling. Where have they been all my life? I’ve been waiting for this for 50 years,” Minton said. He visited the Smithsonian museum on Friday for the first time and went back and visited again on Saturday. Minton served in 1944 in Ramitelli, Italy, as part of the Tuskegee Airmen.
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".
