Following riots in Charlottesville, Louisville is in the process of reviewing its public artworks to evaluate whether they could be interpreted as honoring slavery, bigotry or racism. The city asked for public comments on its more than 400 piece of artwork open to review in the city's collection. Public comments submitted through online form, letter or email were made public Wednesday with names and identifying information aside from zip code removed.
Thrillist, one of the Internet's more egregious providers of listicles and fact-challenged content, reopened old wounds this week by bringing back a story from May that hasn't gotten any better with age. Writer Kevin Alexander meant well when he decided to make a list of the best 100 hamburgers in the United States, but things got off to a bad start when he decided to visit only 30 cities.
Whiskey and beer may be go-to for Irish fare, but next time you head to a pub for a traditional Irish meal, give wine a try. Siobhan Reidy, co-founder of Louisville's Irish Rover, 2319 Frankfort Ave., says the wine offered at the iconic pub is nothing to raise your nose at when chowing down on spiced beef or brown soda bread. “Serious wine geeks recognize the excellent value in our list, but we've done a poor job of helping the general public to understand it,” Reidy says.
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".
