GATLINBURG - Lelin Romero watched with a distressed look on her face as a television broadcast showed the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in Mexico last week. "It's awful," said Romero, watching crews on TV sort through the rubble of the quake near Puebla, Mexico, that killed more than 200 people.
A day and a half after his birth, Canaan Pickel is already on his way to having a shelf full of books. Gov. Bill Haslam and first lady Crissy Haslam were on hand Friday to present the newborn with Watty Piper's "The Little Engine That Could," the first of 60 books he'll receive by age 5 through Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.
Each time Stan Brock stepped off his plane on a Caribbean island late last week, he saw exactly what he expected:Houses ripped apart. Boats thrown up from the ocean onto roads. Airplanes torn to smithereens. Trees stripped bare of leaves. Buildings leveled, save for heavy concrete structures. In the three decades since he founded his East Tennessee-based nonprofit, Remote Area Medical, Brock has seen a lot of devastation wrought by hurricanes – and earthquakes, tornadoes and typhoons.
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".
