In khakis and sport shirt, Tecumseh “Tee” Hooper Jr.’s attire matches his demeanor — quiet, unassuming, and laid back. But in that same under-the-radar way, Hooper has left his mark on more than a half-dozen businesses, an impressive array of community organizations, and the state Department of Transportation. And he did it all without ever raising his voice. I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I really did not want to grow up to work with my father.
Seven million people in the U.S. suffer with some form of dementia. For eight minutes recently, I was one of them. Or at least I experienced some of what it might be like to suffer with dementia, through participation in the Virtual Dementia Tour. The program simulates the challenges a dementia patient experiences in doing everyday things, and helps a normally functioning person to understand — through personal experience — the behaviors that can cause.
In August 2015, Marion Crawford took a hunting trip to Africa. She had set her sights on bagging big game with bow and arrow. Husband William Crawford is an enthusiastic and accomplished hunter and Marion is the daughter of a hunter. But her hunting experience was limited to nabbing some quail with a shotgun — once. Entering uncharted territory, she began preparing more than a half-year ahead of time.
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".
