New Orleans bandleader, singer, songwriter and horn-blower Trombone Shorty, also known as Troy Andrews, was raised in one of the Tremé’s most musical families, and got his name when he picked up his instrument at four. By eight, he led his own band in parades, halls and even bars. Promoters would try to hand money to his older cousins, but they'd kindly redirect them to the boy.
On location for an episode of the 20th season of "Today's Homeowner," Danny Lipford is building a pair of closets on either side of a window. The home in midtown Mobile -- a historic cottage with a front porch, hardwood floors and high ceilings -- desperately needs closet space in the master bedroom. Homeowners Zach and Kelsey Gross moved in just a month ago after being relocated from Houston to Mobile.
Working with her dad and becoming the co-host of his national syndicated home-improvement show was "meant to be," says Chelsea Lipford Wolf. When the 20th season of "Today's Homeowner" debuts this week, Chelsea will officially become the full-time co-host of the show made famous by her father, Danny Lipford, and produced in her hometown of Mobile. "He started TV the year I was born," in 1998, says Chelsea. "I grew up around construction sites that became TV sets."
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".
