Zoe struggled to improve her skills and at times her progress was very, very slow. Some days she felt like she was going backwards instead of forwards. But no matter how bad things got for her, that girl never stopped practicing. When I was a little girl growing up in Weimar, I was an only child. I didn’t feel like I had a lot of friends at school and I spent most of my time alone. I hadn’t been around other kids until I was in kindergarten.
I expected the new candidate to arrive on Friday to complete our new hire paperwork, however they never showed. Come Monday, their agreed upon first day at work, they still didn’t show up. I sent a text asking if they were coming in. Turns out, our candidate had taken a freelance job for a national news outlet and was in Houston covering the hurricane when I expected them to be at work covering the news here. On Monday we were just starting to realize the extent that the river was expected to rise.
As for me, I lost nothing except a few dollars on food and things I thought my family might need should we be hunkered down for a few days. And all of that extra food I bought will eventually get eaten. Except for maybe the cream style corn. We tried a can and it wasn’t near as good as I remembered from my childhood. My son, Wayne went back to his home of Port Aransas to help. As of today, the island is still without power.
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".
