After watching a few of the “Star Wars” movies, I have come to an interesting conclusion. It started out as a boy-falls-for-the-princess fairy tale, which is pretty much the exact opposite of the muchacha-pobre-falls-for-the-galan-con-feria storyline made popular by novelas for as long as I can remember. But, having discovered that following the formula is pure gold, the people who brought us Luke, Leia, el Chuy y Arturito agarraron carrito and took it all the way.
Hold on, let’s think about that Oprah candidacyI love Oprah Winfrey. We’ve been friends in the Facebook sense of the word since the late ’80s. I’m not alone; a lot of Americans are with me. We watched her go from syndicated talk show host to arguably the most influential woman in the world — and we were a part of that. She introduced us to television — and later, a magazine, and later still, a network — that taught us about ourselves.
Column: Memories remain after places are goneWhat do you get the city that has everything for its 300th birthday? A new airport? A strong budget for the symphony? An IKEA? Well, yeah. We’d like that stuff. We can even argue that we really need that stuff. But there’s something else San Antonio really, really needs. I know, birthday presents are supposed to be Stuff You Want, not Stuff You Need.
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".
