In 1963 after basic officer training, Murray Friedman was stationed in Germany. Like us on FacebookAs a Jewish man, he was hesitant about how he would be received by the Germans. He found his German counterparts to be warm and welcoming, save one particular officer. In the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, he tells his son about a time when he was called to this person’s office in December of that year. Here’s Murray. Please bear in mind that he has a touch of laryngitis.
Like many people, Phines Bell, Jr. started out small and gradually worked his way up. In his case, he started behind the wheel of a school bus before becoming a motor-coach driver for some of the biggest acts in the world, everyone from the touring cast of Phantom of the Opera, to Tammy Wynette to the Wu-Tang Clan.
Seventy-year-old Jan Pratt was born in 1947 and raised in small mill towns throughout Lancashire, England. She had no interest in what traditional careers were deemed appropriate for women at the time, yet as a female, there were obstacles and glass ceilings. But, as we hear her tell her daughter, Franny Mulderig, she persisted. This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta's StoryCorps Booth.

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".
