It has been a whirlwind start to the season for the Stanford Women’s volleyball team. The defending 2016 NCAA champions welcomed their new head coach Kevin Hambly, who was previously the head coach at Illinois last year. Hambly has lead the No. 4 Cardinal (6-2) to a strong start for the 2017-18 season.
For a teenager growing up in the 1970s, Steely Dan was more than a rock band. The strange figures of Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were some kind of validation of your own personal cool — the kind that no one else recognized, especially not the golden boys and girls whose circles you stood outside of. As the singer, Fagen was the voice of the songs, so, as is the case with most rock vocalists, he assumed a frontman role.
The Baltimore Harbor used to be so cluttered with trash that locals, like John Kellett, said you could almost walk across sections of the harbor. It was a sight the sailor and engineer saw every day for 20 years until he decided to meet with the city of Baltimore and offer a solution to clean up the waterway. Kellett's solution is an eco-friendly, floating structure named "Mr. Trash Wheel."
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".
