ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Walking into the Visitor Center of the New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial on Saturday afternoon, you’d have thought a rock star had dropped in. A throng of people were amassed around someone near the front of the center’s banquet hall, cellphones and cameras flashing. It was no rock star: it was one of New Mexico’s own Battling Bastards of Bataan, Joe Romero, who was at last presented with his World War II medals during a ceremony there on Saturday.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The city’s eastside animal shelter houses hundreds of dogs and cats. On Wednesday morning, though, it was all about one stout, black, labrador and corgi mix named Chaco, as people and pups alike gathered to celebrate him. A video about Chaco’s work as a therapy dog made by owners Peg Biedermann and Paula Willis sent into “The Ellen Degeneres Show” netted them a $5,000 PetSmart giftcard and $5,000 in cash.
Mohamed Ebeida, a computer scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, wanted a way to teach programming to kids. So he looked to Albuquerque’s Muslim community, of which he is a part. At the beginning of 2016, he gathered around 30 kids ages 6 to 14 from the IslamicCenter of New Mexico in Albuquerque and started teaching them the basics of computer programming and robotics. “These kids, most of the ideas coming from them are out of the box,” Ebeida said.
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".
