New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan beat out running back Mark Ingram as the pair faced off in a Lip Sync Battle aboard the Carnival Dream. Jordan, performing Usher's "Yeah!," was voted by the crowd as the winner over Ingram who rocked out to Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again." Jordan's victory won a $10,000 donation from Carnival Cruise Lines to the United Way while runner-up Ingram earned $5,000 for the Mark Ingram Foundation which assists children who have parents that are incarcerated.
On June 11, 1962, after the lights went out for the night inside the notorious federal prison on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay, inmates Frank Morris and the brothers Clarence and John Anglin began a bold escape. (Morris had previously broken out of Angola before being re-captured and sent to Alcatraz.) The trio of bank robbers placed fake heads made of toilet paper and soap, complete with hair collected from the prison barber, into their beds to fool the guards.
A collection of heavily edited photos from the ninth annual World Naked Bike Ride in New Orleans that saw hundreds of nude (or darn close to it) cyclists riding though the Marigny and the French Quarter to raise awareness for bicycle safety.
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".
