BRIGANTINE -- A young male harbor seal rescued from Barnegat Light is officially on his way to his new home at the Aquarium of Niagara in Niagara Falls, N.Y.Officials from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center picked him up on April 8, and he has spent the past five months recovering at the center, located just north of Atlantic City. "His flipper was just dangling by some tissue," said Bob Schoelkopf, director of MMSC. "Apparently the animal had been hit by a small boat propeller.
WILDWOOD -- It's not every day that you see dogs gliding down a giant water slide or chasing one another around a pirate ship. But that's exactly what happened during Morey's Piers' "Gone to the Dogs" puppy pool party at Raging Waters Water Park Sunday evening. Dogs of all shapes and sizes -- 175 of them -- were in their glory as they happily jumped into the water to fetch balls, paddled around the activity pool, and explored the park.
PHILADELPHIA -- A little after 5 p.m. Saturday, crowds began to gather at Rittenhouse Square. Occasionally, a car would stop to ask what they were waiting for. For those in the know, it was a much-anticipated event. For those unaware, it came as a bit of a surprise when hundreds of naked bicyclists took to the streets of Philadelphia. The 9th Annual Philly Naked Bike Ride kicked off with a pre-party at Glendinning Rock Garden, a small park just across the Schuylkill River from the Philadelphia Zoo.
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".
