CLEVELAND, Ohio - From the moment the Korper kids reunite at the school day's end outside the E-Prep & Village Prep Woodland Hills Campus, 13-year-old Princeton takes charge of his three younger siblings, showing care and concern for them in subtle ways that don't undermine the cool teenager he's trying to be. He makes sure they all have their bus tickets in hand. He ushers them across East 93rd Street, protectively positioning himself between 6-year-old Princess and oncoming traffic.
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Donte Davis had already picked out his clothes for the night - a cool ensemble, including a button-up shirt, blazer, shorts and sneakers. He laid out the threads across his bed, then went downstairs and pensively waited for his mom, Mary, to notice him and perhaps sense the burning question he wasn't sure how to ask. Finally, he just went for it. "Can I go to homecoming?" the usually quiet 15-year-old blurted out. She thought it over before answering, "Ok. When is it?"
CLEVELAND, Ohio - When Mary Davis braids hair, every finger plays a role. They separate and smooth strands, then wind them together into uniform plaits. Her nimble fingers are the loom, firmly but gently holding it all together, working to create something new. She learned this craft from her mother, a licensed beautician who held together her own family in this same public housing complex, King Kennedy, years ago.
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".
