- Today's a great day, not only because it's Friday, but it's also "Take Your Dog to Work Day" and we found a company in Phoenix that celebrates it every day. As Lina knows, it's important to be productive at the workplace. She gives her all every day and knows that hard work will be rewarded. This is the environment every day at Bloguettes, a local company that teaches their clients online blogging techniques.
- Many of us remember those Octobers when downtown Phoenix would turn into a sea of pink. But lately, Executive Director Christina Mencuccini says it's been a much different story. "The 'Race for the Cure' has trended downward for many years now, but also general fundraising and event participation has also been trended downward," she said. Mencuccini began her position with the foundation in November of last year and says one reason for the decline could be that most fundraising is now online.
- It's work that's been going on since 8 a.m.Employees with Corral Kraft are spending their own time and money helping provide shad for more than a dozen horses. "My guy Kevin saw your news story, showed it to me, and we said, 'Hey, this is perfect for us to come out and donate a shade,'" said Tyler Tiensvold, owner of Corral Kraft. "We had one in stock, ready to go and here we are today putting some shade up for these horses."
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".
