Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the host of the Laugh Track column, a man whose mother was a hamster and whose father smelled of elderberries ... Mike McIntyre. Thank you, Cleveland! If you get that reference, I'll see you at the "John Cleese and the Holy Grail" show Wednesday. That is, provided you know the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It's really a testament to the core goodness of human beings that we rally to help one another in times of crisis. We saw that when hurricanes lashed Texas and Florida in the last couple of weeks. Neighbors helped neighbors. Rescue crews had no fear. And from dry land, thousands of miles away, people were moved to donate money and supplies. But take away the hurricane, or the earthquake, the fire, the plane crash or the terror attack. Are we our best selves then?
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Loung Ung has told her story countless times, in interviews, in front of large audiences, in a New York Times bestseller published in 2000 called, "First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers." Seventeen years after the book was published, the Shaker Heights resident is telling her story in a new way with the help of her friend, actress and filmmaker Angelina Jolie.
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".
