Brownsburg, Ind. - Did you know Brownsburg hasn't always had that name? The original name was Harrisburg until a Post Office was established and they realized another Post Office in Indiana already laid claim to the name! That was in 1836 and more than 21,000 people live in the Hendricks County town today. "What I love about Brownsburg is it's constantly growing and improving and progressing," said Travis Tranbarger.
Danville, Ind. - This week's Your Town Friday will make you smile! We went about 20 miles west of Indianapolis to check out Danville. Danville sits in the exact center of Hendricks County. Nine-thousand people live there and if you do, you probably know Tracy Jones and Bill Franklin! The own Court House Grounds on the Danville square. "Bill and I have been best friends for years and we opened a coffee shop and bakery on Christmas Eve of 1998," said Tracy.
Indianapolis, Ind. - The destination for this week's Your Town Friday is a no-brainer! We're checking out the Racing Capital of the World. In 1909, four men bought land to build a race track. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was on the map well before the town of Speedway was. In fact, Speedway took shape 17 years later. Carl Fisher, one of Speedway's four founders, envisioned the town as the first "horseless city."
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".
