When Tenney Mason retired from a career of photojournalism, he made a promise to himself to take a photo every day. After a few months, he realized he had a folder of photos on his computer that no one, including himself, ever saw. That was when his daughter introduced him to Instagram, a photo-sharing system based on the Internet. “All of a sudden, it went from no one looking at them, to people in New Zealand,” Mason said.
As the cast and crew of Long Reach High School’s production of “The Miracle Worker” gathered before a dress rehearsal on Nov. 2, director Marla Blasko, theater teacher at Long Reach, asked them to close their eyes, but not to relax. Rather, she asked the to tighten their muscles, from their jaws to their toes, before asking them to let the”tension feelings go.”“Breathe in. Breath out your day,” Blasko said.
On the first day of November, 10 members of the Howard County Garden Club met in front of the Howard County Tourism office on Main Street in Ellicott City. Armed with shovels, gloves, mulch, dirt and plants, the women were soon on their hands and knees, working to replant a garden that washed away during the July 2016 flood, carrying with it the Blue Star Memorial the club had erected at the site in 2013.
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".
