During my May 2017 trip to Kefalonia I had the chance to visit the neighboring island of Ithaca. Because of my interest in astronomy and general knowledge of the epic Trojan War story of Odysseus, I was intrigued to discover that an eclipse coincided with Odysseus’ return to Ithaca, his homeland, following his involvement in the legendary 10-year Trojan War and his further 10-year struggle home.
Last April, Claremont McKenna College's Athenaeum attempted to host Manhattan Institute's Heather Mac Donald in the hopes of fostering dialogue on issues of race, police, and criminal justice. However, hundreds of leftist thugs, mainly students from the five Claremont Colleges, blockaded the Athenaeum, while protesters threatened student journalists covering the protest. Mac Donald had to be relocated for safety reasons.
The music playing as the crowd filed in before the show sounded like a French bordello (we're guessing, having never been in a French bordello, as far as anyone knows). The stage: A couple of comfy green leather chairs, a bookcase between and behind them — all filled with "her" book. The hall, Warner Theater in Washington, D.C., was sold out Monday night for Hillary Clinton's first of 15 nationwide (and Canadian) tour stops to sell her new book — and tell us all — "What Happened."
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".
