ST. MARYS, GA. | After the storm, the old Cumberland Queen ferry now rests on the bottom of the river just off this historic waterfront city. At high tide, it’s invisible. As the tide drops, part of its bow emerges from the water. It’s no big loss to Calvin Lang, whose company has had the contract to ferry passengers out to Cumberland Island National Seashore for three decades. He sold the boat four years ago, to a gentleman from up north who he believes has never even laid eyes on it.
June 16, 1898, was hot and sticky in downtown Jacksonville, but that didn’t stop the orators from giving one florid speech after the other to celebrate the new 62-foot monument to Florida’s Confederate soldiers. The Lost Cause of the Confederacy was held up as a noble thing indeed, and ex-Gov. Francis P. Fleming, born and raised near Jacksonville, gave the opening speech — a long, defiant defense of the Confederacy, for which he’d fought.
Al Letson, a Jacksonville playwright and host of a show that airs on National Public Radio, threw his body over a man who was being beaten by protestors at Sunday’s “Rally Against Hate” in Berkeley, Calif., stopping the attack. “I was scared they were going to kill him,” Letson said in a story on the website of Reveal, the investigative public radio show he hosts. The attack was filmed by Mother Jones journalist Shane Bauer, who said the attackers were anti-fascist protesters known as antifa.
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".
