Jeff Pastor knows that in life as well as elections, the line between success and failure is often razor thin. Pastor, 33, of Mount Lookout, is one of three new faces on Cincinnati City Council. At least for now. Pastor won the ninth and final seat on Council Nov. 8, edging past Michelle Dillingham by a mere 317 votes. Dillingham isn't ready to concede and voters may not know who they elected until next month.
I shot a gun for the first time in my life this past August at a gun range in Blue Ash. It was exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. I learned a lot, too. For example, I learned that despite my inexperience, I’m a pretty darned good shooter, as evidenced by my bullet-riddled target. Holding, aiming and firing that powerful piece of steel, I suddenly understood how some people could develop a love affair with guns. I also gained a newfound respect for their destructive power.
Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley called his eight-point victory over Yvette Simpson in Tuesday’s election “a comeback.” I prefer “wake-up call.”Cranley is the most political of animals and incumbents with a record of accomplishments like his rarely lose re-election bids. But by his own admission, Simpson humbled him in the May primary and made him sweat out the mayor’s race until the last precincts were counted Tuesday night.
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".
