As volunteers worked feverishly to tape the exposed windows of San Juan’s Temple Beth Shalom with plastic film and carry the synagogue’s Torah scrolls to a secure place, the congregation’s visiting rabbi prayed for a New Year 5778 miracle that would spare Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria. The Category 5 storm, with wind speeds of 160 mph, has already left widespread destruction on the nearby islands of Guadeloupe and Dominica.
As Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu wraps up his historic trip to Argentina, Colombia and Mexico — marking the first time any Israeli leader has ever visited the region — the Tel Aviv-based envoys of four small Central American nations Thursday night hosted a big party whose underlying message seemed to be, “Hey, we’re here, too!”The lavish reception at the Tel Aviv Sheraton attracted about 200 diplomats, private executives, government types, journalists and others.
Back in 1940, Henrietta Boggs was a restless 22-year-old woman from Birmingham, Alabama, when she arrived in Costa Rica, looking for a little adventure. She accepted a motorcycle ride from a coffee farmer. Little did she know she’d end up marrying that farmer, José “Pepe” Figueres Ferrer — a revolutionary who’d later become president of Costa Rica and set the Central American country on its irreversible path to peace and prosperity.
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".
