MORE THAN any other time in American history, where we live now is a matter of choice. Some of us live where we live because we chose to stay, some because we chose to move, others because we chose to return. We are, whether we like it or not, part of larger trends. We’re clichés. An equation of facts: North Carolina is growing fast + Cities are growing fast = Raleigh and Charlotte are cities that are growing fast. We joined the movement, so we rejoice when we receive affirmation.
Animals have been involved in human civilization since time immemorial. They are part of our daily lives, our productivity, our leisure, and our diets. When mmovies grew into a new artistic medium, it was inevitable that animals would appear in movies. Horses are a staple of just about any historical or fantasy movie, while dogs, cats, and other pets appear in films with domestic settings.
Just three days later, on the last full day of our trip, the air is warm again. Conner finally has time to do something he’s talked about doing all week: fishing. We head to Walmart to get a pair of three-day Utah fishing licenses. We’d been living in the same house several nights by this point. We’ve watched a movie each night, pulling one from the stack he checked out from the library.
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".
