PURCELL, Okla. – When first responders leave a tragic scene, they often take with them memories of what they’ve witnessed. Memories that can haunt them for months. Kim Barns has become a first responder for the first responders of the Purcell Fire Department. She helps them talk through the calls that upset them. And, she’s there to bring meals when a long response time means they haven’t eaten. “You see the hurt in their faces”, she says.
MOORE, Okla. – There’s a little girl in Moore who has found the recipe for success. She gauges her milestones not by the money she makes. But, by the money she gives away. Brie Perez makes cookies. And, by all accounts, they are among the best available. That’s remarkable for a baker who is only 9 years old. The fourth grader started baking cookies to raise money for an animal shelter. “Her name was Barbara,” says Brie.
OKLAHOMA CITY – It was an ordinary trip for Tamara Nelson Omandi – until she noticed something. “The homeless population had grown,” she said. She was seeing more young people under the bridges, in the alleys and on the street corners. She then drove to her appointment, not giving it another thought. As she slept that night, something startled her awake. “The people I had passed earlier, I just saw them. Just like you’re standing in front of me,” Tamara said.
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".
