When you walk into Exotic Cars by Enterprise in Newport Beach, don’t mention the scene in “Risky Business” in which the Porsche 928 ends up in the lake. First, some people in the office haven’t heard of the 1983 film, and second, the whole ending-up-in- the-lake thing is not the preferred outcome. At Exotic Cars, you can impress your family and friends, your date, people on the Vegas strip, your high school classmates for reunion weekend, anyone really – if you’ve got the cash.
She stood under the football stadium lights, in the spotlight, in the light of flashing cameras, in the light of a thousand smiles, and somehow she outshined all that. On this night, the girl who is not allowed to feel the warmth of the sun on her skin, owned the light. As she waited to hear if she would be named homecoming queen, the disease that had taken so much from her seemed so small. She wasn’t a girl wearing long gloves and a plastic hood. She was a princess hoping for a coronation.
Have you ever truly considered the sunset? Riley McCoy has. When you think about it, the sun doesn’t set at all. It doesn’t drop or recede. The sun is fixed and relentless to the point that, every evening, the earth turns away. Riley is 17, trying her best to have a typical senior year in high school. Her life is too dependent on the bend of the horizon, the reach of ultraviolet rays and the danger of the sun. Every day, Riley waits as the Earth rotates east.
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".
