Elena read the January 2016 email claiming some guy named Dan was interested in her with skepticism. She hadn’t used eHarmony for ages, so it was likely some kind of marketing ploy to get her back, she reasoned. Yet curiosity led her to log in to her old account, where she read a profile that made Dan seem like a real person — and an interesting one — so she answered his inquiry.
They met at an Edison, N.J., Holiday Inn during the icebreaker portion of a 2006 Jewish teen bus tour, USY on Wheels. Josh, then 15, and Lindy, 14, were assigned to the same one of a half-dozen buses that would take the group to cities and landmarks across the country over six and a half weeks. Instantly interested, both volunteered for the laborious loading and unloading duties, as it seemed a sure way to get to know each other.
They met a decade ago at a Brookhaven AARP meeting. Vera had joined the social group for seniors years ago, shortly after the death of her husband, Roy. Peter and his wife, Marie, were new, and the affable Vera welcomed them. Peter and Marie were soon regulars themselves. When Marie got sick, Vera missed her friend and sent a series of get-well cards and good wishes. When Marie died on Easter Sunday 2014, Vera offered Peter sincere condolences and an empathetic ear.
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".
