- Teen bikers are pedaling their way to a brighter future thanks to one man’s passion. "I'm trying to get them to pick up a bicycle and put the guns down," Orrin Arnold explained. "Bikes Up, Guns Down" is a community project Arnold started after serving three years in prison for dealing drugs. He wants kids to steer away from the troubled road he took. "I tell them to get a bicycle and come ride with me," Orrin continued. "They ain't got to be in the streets like that."
- Some kids in Pinellas County are seeing their dreams take off at the birthplace of commercial aviation in Saint Petersburg. "Ever since I was seven or eight years old I've been dreaming of wanting to be a pilot for American Airlines," Timothy Young said. Timothy took his first big step towards that dream. He and others kids ages six to 16 are in the Fly St. Pete summer camp. Some are taking the controls for the first time with an instructor.
- She may not have the same legs as her sisters and brothers, but 6-year-old Ireland Nugent still keeps up with the pack. She climbs trees, plays soccer and tag. Even when she stumbles, she gets right back up. For her parents, it's a blessing to witness. "That we could actually get to some sense of normal. I just felt like after the accident our life would never be normal again," said Ireland's father, Jerimiah Nugent. The Nugents’ new normal began on April 10, 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 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".
