In 1906 Takuichi Fujii left Japan. He boarded a ship in Kobe and three weeks later landed in Seattle, a raw young town a half-century old. He started a business and a family. He was an Issei, a first-generation Japanese immigrant hoping to make America his new home. Fujii worked every spare moment on his art, meeting with and learning from his fellow immigrant artists.
Stanford historian Richard White, a former star teacher and scholar at the University of Washington, has completed a 10-year odyssey: a history of the United States during 30 tumultuous 19th-century years, from Reconstruction to the Gilded Age. Imagine you’re at your favorite tavern. It’s trivia night.
The master spy novelist brings characters from five decades’ worth of books back to life, in this sequel — of a sort — to 1963’s “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.”In John le Carré’s new book, “A Legacy of Spies,” the master spy novelist has performed a resurrection, bringing characters from five decades’ worth of books back to life. Some come back from the dead. Some live, but in a kind of twilight, having stepped back from the abyss of history. Others are prisoners of the current age.
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".
