- There's nothing like browsing through Christmas decorations when you live in the desert in the middle of summer. Snowmen and ornaments make us dream of cooler times, but they're all for sale right now at the Sunshine Boutique locations near the grounds of the children's shelter it keeps alive. "We're thrilled to have the children until their parents get on their feet, and when they're on their feet, they're able to get their children back," Cindy Humphrey said.
- With every delicate stroke of a brush, two men, color by color, paint a story of hope in downtown Phoenix. "We're proud of it, to tell you the truth, we're very proud of this mural," Jose Andres Giron said. It's a testament, that muralists Jose and Roman Reyes say, to the work of United Cerebral Palsy, which is a place that helps more than 5,000 children and adults with varying disabilities every year, including Roman's son. "This is very special to me... very special," Reyes said.
- On the morning after the storm, clean up begins at Gold Canyon's Mountain Brook Golf Club. One by one, crews remove 19 uprooted trees, but none as dramatic as the massive Cottonwood that used to stand tall on the 13th hole. "Planted it in 2002 off of a branch we soaked in water and now it's gone," said Brendan Waddell, general manager of Mountain Brook Golf Club. It's a shocking site for Waddell, who hasn't seen anything like this in his 17 years at the course.
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".
