Lola, a French bulldog, is eagerly queuing up for her fourth sample of Wild Earth kibble. She’s one of several ‘taste-testers’ for this new brand of dog food that aims to transform the $30 billion pet food industry in the US with the introduction of cultured protein products for pets. Conventional pet foods are tested on caged cats and dogs in laboratories.
As a child, Elena Shifrina was fascinated with outer space. It was an interest fueled by her grandfather, a test pilot who studied with Yuri Gagarin, the Russian cosmonaut and first person to travel in space. It’s this love of outer space that provided the inspiration for Shifrina’s popular Bite range of healthy snack bars that are currently available in more than 20,000 locations in 15 countries including China, Japan, the UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the UK.
In 2004 travel firm VegVoyages launched, offering three trips in one country. Fourteen years later, the company, which specializes in vegan adventure tours in Asia, now runs up to 23 trips a year in five different countries. Based in Texas, it’s one of several operators that caters for this growing market of ethical consumers seeking to experience different cultures without harming animals, exploiting people or devastating the environment.
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".
