Ed and Joan McCarthy bought their Lakewood retirement home in 2000 because of the golf course. "It was a marvelous gem to look at," said Ed McCarthy. "It exceeded our expectations." The 27-hole course of gentle slopes and manicured greens and fairways was also somewhat of a wildlife sanctuary. Ducks roamed from the ponds, all types of birds alighted at feeders and the Chanticleer pear trees blossomed with brilliant white and soft pink buds each spring.
Anthony Crincoli spent almost 31/2 years in battle in Iraq. His unit of the 112th Infantry Regiment lost 32 members during fighting around Baghdad. "That was in 2006," he said. "The first time we were ambushed was Easter Sunday that year. That always stuck with me. "I've seen tanks blown in half. I've seen the Iraqi police pile bodies into the back of pick-up trucks. People ask, 'How did you get PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)?' as if it were one thing. Maybe for some guys it is.
Braden Bullen sat on his mother's lap flipping through a scrapbook older than his grandfather. The photos were all black and white but grayed with time. Trapped in cellophane, captives of time, were pictures of Braden's great-grandfather during his Army days in World War II. Vernon Chevalier, Sr., was in the second wave at D-Day and fought across France and Belgium through those crucial and brutal days when the war turned.
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".
