On his last day of an unbelievable 44-year career in radio, Steven Seaweed plans to do what’s made him a success, and it’s more than “shut up and play the hits.”On Friday, the DJ at 107.7 The Bone is ending his most recent 17-year stint at the station by taking classic rock requests from fans (and perhaps playing a few tunes of his own choice — possibly by notables including U2, Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin or Jimi Hendrix).
For her 13th book, Edgar Award-winner Meg Gardiner decided to take on the Zodiac Killer. “I grew up in California. As a kid, I was spooked by the whole thing. I remember how bizarre and terrifying it was. I was mesmerized and horrified that he couldn’t be caught,” says the Austin, Texas-based novelist, who comes to the Bay Area next week to promote her latest thriller.
“Obit” goes behind the scenes in the obituary department of the New York Times, one of the few places of its kind in today’s digital news marketplace. The engaging documentary by Vanessa Gould showcases the experienced, intrepid and sensitive writers who do their best to “do right” by the people who “have made an impact” whose lives they’re bringing to light.
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".
