It's 10 minutes before I'm going to Skype with the Backstreet Boys, and my 29-year-old self is anxiously pondering a dilemma my 10-year-old self-a BSB superfan-couldn't possibly have imagined: Which wall of my tiny, cluttered New York City apartment do I feel most comfortable letting one of the most successful boy bands in history look at over my shoulder?
The run-up to the 2016 Olympics exposed issues with infrastructure, crime, and poverty in host city Rio de Janeiro, yet during the games, the worst predictions of unrest have for the most part failed to materialize. That may be because Rio is heavily secured-some 85,000 officers and soldiers are on duty, the second-largest contingent among...
Hi. Shark here. I wasn't planning on writing this - god knows no one asked me to - but it would seem I've become something of an overnight sensation. "Internet famous," as my great-great-grandsharkchildren would say. I have to admit, the fame comes as a surprise. I've lived a long time, yes, but my life hasn't been particularly interesting.
I remember the first time Harry Potter almost died, in a graveyard surrounded by a ring of Death Eaters. I remember when he almost died again, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, after failing to defend himself against Voldemort's killing curse.
As homegrown drug operations go, the meth lab is king. Methamphetamine production is known to contaminate houses and spontaneously combust labs, so attempting it requires a scrappy sensibility and serious attention to detail. But routine meth usage has never been a reality for more than 0.3% of the US population, despite all its temporary or localized upswings.
Surely the number one thing on your packing list before a skydiving trip is "parachute." Maybe right after that: "extra parachute." And yet on Saturday (July 30), skydiver Luke Aikins packed neither, instead becoming the first skydiver to jump from a plane with nothing except an iron will and an immense faith in net technology.
As Hillary Clinton basked in the glow of her official nomination on Friday, Donald Trump was stumping in Colorado, a swing state with a growing population that could prove crucial come November. Trump kicked things off by complaining about the fire marshal's refusal to let more people into the auditorium in Colorado Springs, which had a capacity of...
It's been exactly a month since reports surfaced that Apple was in talks to acquire Tidal, the music streaming service owned by Jay Z. On Saturday (July 30), Kanye West seemed to confirm those rumors with a Twitter rant that suggests the conversations are going....less than smoothly.
The stakes may be high in poker, but chips have nothing on dysentery. Thirty-plus years after The Oregon Trail swept home computers and classrooms across America, the popular video game is staging a comeback-as a tabletop card game. After a Reddit user posted photos of the game on sale at a Portland, Oregon, Target location, the...
Hey guys. All of you know me, although many of us haven't talked in years. Honestly, some of us never talked much in the first place, but Facebook came out while we were in college and everyone was friending everyone and so here we are, almost a decade later, with you knowing about every book...
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
