My favourite kind of artist is one that doesn’t take themselves too seriously, and Chad Brownlee’s new video is FULL of them! “Out of The Blue” is Chad’s 5th release from his Juno-nominated Hearts On Fire album and the video is stacked with Canadian country music stars. Brownlee has recruited Dallas Smith, JoJo Mason, and the boys from The Washboard Union. I’m sure zero fun was had while filming this video.
I know that I cry easily, but I honestly bawled when I saw this video this morning. The Dallas Stars, who were playing the Knights last night, came out and stood behind the team instead of standing across from them as they usually would. Seems like a simple gesture, but I can’t imagine how much that means to the people of Las Vegas. So beautiful.
Late last week, a man walked into Maple’s Bakery in Yarmouth, Maine, and asked to pay for the next 59 meals at the restaurant. The woman working at the counter was curious about the request, thinking that maybe it was his 59th birthday, or there was another special reason for the purchase. There was. The man did not say at the time, but a woman came back later and said that the man wanted to remain anonymous, but had purchased the meals to honour the 59 lives lost in the Las Vegas attacks.
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".
