I was very happy to get this update on the status of the island of Maui’s Mana’o Hana Hou radio the other day from John Bruce, an engineer who sits on the Maui Media Initiative board for Mana’o. The operation describes itself as a “non commercial secular FM broadcast station,” with the official call letters KMNO. The community station streams at 91.7 FM from around 7,000 feet on the slopes of Haleakala. Begun a dozen years ago as a low power signal, Mana’o Hana Hou is now licensed at 1,200 watts.
Mr. Okra, the famous singing veggie vendor of New Orleans has died. A celebration of his singing life ensued, as so:But surely you want to hear his daily opus. Here it is, thanks to National Public Radio. I have nothing further to say about this man, other than to note that he possessed a great voice, shared it generously, and lived a great life.
Here's that famous 1958 photograph of Van Cliburn in recital in Moscow after winning the International Tchaikovsky Prize. Cliburn aside, I think that what makes the photo special are those two on the bottom right with their radiant smiles. Who were they, I sometimes wonder. https://t.co/c5c3sRYF4Z
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".
