Champaign, IL - Family Fun and History in Fort Wayne and SpringfieldSummer may be “officially” over, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for some family fun, whether you are looking for afternoon activities or an easy getaway. Knights Action Park in Springfield closed their waterpark this weekend, but they still have plenty to do through October, from 9:00 am-10:00 pm. It’s a good way to keep the kids occupied on a free evening or a school day off.
Find Cheap Wine That is Actually Delicious When You Shop by RegionWhen I started writing about wine, I took a seminar with the owner of a winery called How to Taste Like a Sommelier. The first thing that stuck with me was in his opening remarks. He told us that what we liked was more important than many consider great wine. I always remember that when people ask me what wine they should buy. I won’t give any suggestions until I find out what they like.
Marcia Frost: As you can hear, my voice is kind of gone. I did too much singing at the show in Peoria. Tom Petersson: You liked it. Good. MF: Tell me about the songs in the new album and what inspired them. TP: We write songs and work on material all the time. We’ve got a backlog of ideas, things that are current, things past, and a combination of everything we have done over the years. We always have a lot of unfinished ideas.
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".
