When Pippa Middleton followed her sister into Westminster Abbey wearing a slinky white Alexander McQueen, American blogs predicted a blizzard of white bridesmaid dresses lasting well into 2013. But, rather than a storm, all that materialized across the pond were a few bright flurries and the Kardashian sisters. Instead, brides here are embracing their darker sides—and giving their bridesmaids a bigger bang for their buck.
In Russian folklore, the firebird represents inspiration and light. In Chinese mythology, the dragon embodies power and good luck. Together, they are the perfect symbol for the five-year courtship of Kate Zelenova and Danny Yin. Despite being born roughly 4,000 miles apart in Moscow and southern China, respectively, Kate and Danny met on a tiny Manhattan dance floor in November 2004. They each felt a spark and exchanged numbers—but Kate instructed him not to call for two weeks.
Beer drinkers locally and nationally are experiencing something of a craft brewery renaissance. According to Datafiniti, Rochester now ranks 16th per capita nationally with 3.2 breweries for every 100,000 people. The trend slakes thirsts, but beer lovers often crave food with their brews. Several local breweries recognize that and have put together menus to meet both needs.
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".
