WEYERS CAVE — It was fitting that the celebration of Blue Ridge Community College's 50th anniversary would take place in the middle of the road leading onto campus, said President John Downey. "It's the path students have to travel to make a better life for themselves," Downey said, and it's the road they take after leaving Blue Ridge with that better life.
BATH COUNTY — A woman attacked by a bear while hiking in Douthat State Park in Bath County has been released from the hospital and is going "fine," said Jim Meisner, spokesperson for Virginia state parks. The victim — who has asked that her name not be released — was injured by the bear in both legs but has made a full recovery. "She said she is looking forward to coming back to the park next year," Meisner said.
It’s easy for some to brandish electronic music as repetitive, simplistic, sometimes even lazy. But all it takes is an artist like Somne to highlight that it can be a medium built around intricacy and fine-tuning. At once considered, experimental and moody, Metropolis is a testament to the scope of Federico Maccherone’s project, Somne. The EP is a diverse fusion of moods and sounds, Somne placing dark breakbeats alongside fierce club cuts, demonstrating the Italian producer’s range.
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".
