On this postcard-perfect early September evening, with the sun lingering in the clear blue sky, a black Jeep Cherokee makes its way north on Skyline Drive outside of Stoughton, a city about 20 miles southeast of Madison. The teenage girl behind the wheel is headed to her friend’s house for a ritual followed by cross-country teams throughout the nation: the Friday night pasta feed.
John Fennell’s first experience at Milwaukee Magazine didn’t go well. He interviewed for the editor-in-chief job and wasn’t picked. But no one told him. He was left waiting and wondering for months, only hearing through the grapevine that someone else got the job. A year later, that editor left, and the magazine came back to him and offered him the job. Thus began the longest tenure, by far, of any editor-in-chief in Milwaukee Magazine history.
The Torah is wrapped in a blue velvet sleeve. Hannah Rosenthal, presiding over High Holy Day services as she’s done very year since the early 1980s, cradles the sacred scroll in her left arm as if it’s a newborn. She sways to the Hebrew song being sung by a congregation of family, friends and strangers packed into Gates of Heaven in Madison, a part-time synagogue that dates to the 1860s and is about the size of an old one-room schoolhouse.
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".
