From time to time I may have mentioned I hate snow.Nothing good ever comes of it.It’s cold. It’s inconvenient. It creates hazardous driving conditions. And, it almost always wreaks havoc with my schedule. “I've been everywhere, man The only benefit of snow, other than a well-placed snowball in the back of a friend or colleague, is that it creates beautiful photographs.You want to take a photo you can hang on your wall?
ALTON — It’s not exactly like the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano each spring, but in the Midwest, Alton is becoming synonymous with eagle-watching.As cold weather settles over the Midwest in November through February, causing the northern Mississippi River to freeze, scores of bald eagles migrate south, taking up temporary residence in the southwestern Illinois river town.The abundance of eagles attracts thousands of eagle oglers each winter.
The Salukis comeback win over Illinois State Saturday indicates the rest of this season will be interesting.Interesting doesn’t make fans happy, but it sure makes covering a team easier.After back-to-back losses at Valparaiso and Bradley, it appeared as if the team may be folding the tents. It didn’t seem an unreasonable supposition. The Salukis had been looking forward to the return of preseason All-MVC forward Thik Bol 10 days 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".
